I occasionally look at a crazy (and unreadable) site called whatdoesitmean.com. These guys write in long, run-on sentences that are almost impossible to decipher. The site is a mess. On Jan 7 they published an article that was inspiring, although it is most likely a conspiracy theory. Well, it’s a positive conspiracy theory about peace in the Middle East, and Trump vs. the military-industrial-complex, which I talked about in my last post.

I’m simply going to quote verbatim from parts of the article and rewrite it in intelligible form. Here goes:

On December 6, 2019, AP reports that an elite Saudi Arabian military officer training at a US base in Florida to open fire and kill 3 American military officers. “An aviation student from Saudi Arabia opened fire in a classroom at the Naval Air Station Pensacola on Friday morning, killing three people in an attack the Saudi government quickly condemned and that U.S. officials were investigating for possible links to terrorism.”

On December 10, the New York Times reports that “The Pentagon has suspended operational training for all Saudi military students in the United States, indefinitely halting flight instruction, firing range training and all other operations outside the classroom in the wake of a shooting last week at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida by a member of the Saudi Royal Air Force.

On December 11, 2019, BBC News reported that “the UN has reportedly so far been unable to confirm Iran was involved in drone and cruise missile attacks on two key Saudi oil facilities in September. Saudi Arabia said Iran was behind the attacks, which temporarily knocked out half of the kingdom's crude production. But a leaked report by the UN's secretary general says investigators could not corroborate that the drones and missiles were of Iranian origin.” The UN report was issued on December 10th. Okay, so Iran was not behind this attack. The US has troops and missiles in Saudi Arabia to defend against such an attack. In September, this missile system mysteriously failed, even though it was an advanced U.S. system. How could such a sophisticated missile system fail precisely when it was needed? The result was a big (although temporary) blow to Saudi oil production.  

On December 27, 2019, Trump order[s] the assassination of Iranian General Qasem Soleimani 

At Soleimani’s funeral in Tehran, on January 6, 2020, “Iran’s semi-official news agency ISNA reported chants of “Death to infidels,” “Death to seditionists” and “Death to al-Saud” — a reference to the Saudi ruling family.” This demonstration was choreographed by the regime. If people are shouting “Death to Saud,” it has the sanction of the regime in Iran.

On January 7, the Farsi News Agency reported “A number of family members of the Saudi princes have fled to the European states for the fear of Iran's retaliation for the US assassination of IRGC Qods Force Commander Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, Arab media reports said.

If you follow the news you remember “news people” speculating about an escalation of tensions in the Middle East that could lead to World War III – something so absurd that it was almost funny. The news media EXISTS to spread fear and hatred, and is a tool of the warmongers and the MIC. No surprise, actually, but this speculation was all over the place.

US-Iran war fears devolved into a “farce spectacle,” according to this article, “of Chairman of the Iranian parliament’s National Security and Foreign Policy Commission Mojtaba Zonnouri threatening to strike 6,236 US targets, which is the number of verses in the Koran.  This was quickly followed by Trump ordering 52 fully armed stealth fighter jets to do an “Elephant Walk” at their Hill Air Force Base in Utah, which is the number of American hostages Iran held in 1979.  

OK, enough! This is comical, and can’t be taken seriously by anyone. Except maybe warmongers in the MIC and in the press, who seem to delight in scaring the shit out of people. If Iran has the capacity to hit over six thousand U.S. targets, they could take over the world. Obviously they don't. It's just theater.

The conspiracy theory here is that Trump wants to get the US out of endless wars, but he is being opposed by those who profit from war. So, he has to practice a diplomacy that shakes up the system and tries to expose the stupidity of spending trillions on killing people halfway around the world. (Of course, those who hate Trump will simply say that he’s a tool of the MIC and a warmonger himself, but I don’t believe this. Trump is no peacenik but he is a businessman who likes deals, and making money. And the warmongers (on both sides) are simply in the way.)

Sylvain LaForest  writing in Oriental Review, says this about Trump (I posted this article on my Facebook page):  

Early in his mandate, Trump naively tried the direct approach, by surrounding himself with establishment rebels like Michael Flynn and Steve Bannon, then by annoying each and everyone of his foreign allies, shredding their free-trade treaties, imposing taxes on imports and insulting them in their face in the G7 meetings of 2017 and 2018. The reaction was strong and everyone doubled-down on the Russiagate absurdity, as it looked like the only option to stop the man on his path of globalism destruction. Predictably, the direct approach went nowhere; Flynn and Bannon had to go, and Trump was entangled in a handful of inquiries that made him realize that he wouldn’t get anything accomplished with transparency. He had to find a way to annihilate the most dangerous people on the planet, but at the same time, stay in power and alive. He had to smarten up.

That’s when his genius exploded on the world. He completely changed his strategy and approach, and started taking absurd decisions and tweeting outrageous declarations. As threatening and dangerous as some of these first looked, Trump didn’t use them for their first degree meaning, but was aiming at the genuine second degree effects that his moves would have. And he didn’t care about what people thought of him as he did, for only results count in the end. He would even play buffoon over Twitter, look naive, lunatic or downright idiotic, perhaps in the hope to impregnate the belief that he didn’t know what he’s doing, and that he couldn’t be that dangerous. He’s willfully being politically incorrect to show the ugly face that the United States are hiding behind their mask.” 

https://orientalreview.org/2019/11/15/about-trump/

OK, this is a bit much I think. But it fits with the title of this post, that things are not always what they seem. Trump seems like a moron and a warmonger. But maybe he’s not! Maybe there’s a plan behind the madness. I hope there is and I’ll grasp onto any straw I can find! Why wouldn’t you take a positive attitude? The law of attraction tells us that what you expect you get more of. Having a defeatist attitude just puts that on the timeline of future events. Hate is hate, even if it’s hate of Trump. It’s harmful. So I don’t do it! I look for positive explanations.

Now, according to this article, “President Trump stripped away the mask from the ugly face of America’s endless wars by his secretly ordering released to The Washington Post what are now infamously known as The Afghanistan Papers.” The Post declares in a blaring headline: “Those Who Ran The Afghanistan War Lied…They Must Be Held To Account

Nine days later the warmongers and the MIC retaliated, voting to impeach Trump on December 19. Here is where it gets fantastical. According to this too-flattering article, Trump embarks on an historic quest to make peace with the entire Muslim world.

Now, we know that there is a Swiss backchannel between Iran and the US. This is how Trump communicates with the mullahs in Iran. This back channel was instrumental in calming tensions after the killing of Soleimani and the Iranian attacks on US bases in Iraq – no Americans were killed in these attacks because the Iranians told the US beforehand so we could get our troops out of  there. https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/id-see-them-call-me-how-trump-used-encrypted-swiss-fax-machine-defuse-iran-crisis

The theory is that Trump is making a deal with the Iranians – dealing is what he’s good at – and wants to let Iran deal with the terrorist state of Saudi Arabia, instead of us. Saudi Arabia isn’t popular in the Arab world, even among Sunni Muslims. A recent Gallup poll shows that just 4% of Americans have a “very favorable” view of Saudi Arabianumbers that are worse than Venezuela or Cuba. Of course this idea flies in the face of the Pertrodollar agreement back in the 1970s with the Saudis, but the world’s financial system, and the Petrodollar system, can’t keep going much longer. More and more countries in the world are abandoning the dollar to pay for oil. Maybe Trump sees his chance.

Is this a far-fetched theory? Probably. But it’s a hopeful one.   

Some have suggested that  General Soleimani was lured into an ambush by US Secretary of State Michael Pompeo, who invited him to Iraq to talk peace about Syria, and then killed him—and that General Soleimani was killed while on a mission to make peace with Saudi Arabia. The article says (perhaps naively) that “both Trump and Iran’s Supreme Leader agreed that General Soleimani would be sacrificed—a sacrifice intended to achieve two goals—the FIRST being a cessation of any war between the US and Iran occurring—and the SECOND being the removal of all US military forces from Iraq.”

This is interesting, because Press TV reports that

The the US-led military coalition purportedly fighting the Daesh terrorist group has reportedly relocated its headquarters in Iraq to Kuwait in the wake of recent assassination of Lieutenant General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC), and the second-in-command of Iraqi Popular Mobilization Units (PMU), Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis, and public rage over the targeted killings. Iraq’s Arabic-language al-Forat news agency reported that the alliance took the decision on Tuesday to move its command center from the Iraqi capital Baghdad to Kuwait City. The Qatar-based and Arabic-language al-Jazeera news network, citing a report published by German DPA news agency, later confirmed the account. The report came only a day after Iraq's caretaker Prime Minister Adel Abdul-Mahdi said his country and the United States should work together on implementing the withdrawal of all foreign troops from the country.”

https://www.presstv.com/Detail/2020/01/07/615578/US-led-coalition-temporarily-relocates-headquarters-from-Iraq-to-Kuwait:-Report

Interesting. A temporary relocation? Maybe.

The article continues: “The Netherlands suspended all of its military operation in Iraq and Germany pulled all of its military forces out of Iraq, too. [This is] a Western military strategic retreat occurring while Iraq has restricted the movement of the international coalition’s forces as part of preparing a mechanism of the foreign troop pullout from the country.”

Could this explain the chaotic 24 hours that “saw the US announcing in a letter that it was pulling all of its troops out of Iraq—a letter quickly modified by US Army General Mark Milley, the Commander of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who said this letter was a draft and that it should not have been released.” Maybe.

I talked about this in my last post – that there is a struggle between Trump, who wants our troops out of the Middle East, and the warmongers, who control troop deployments, and who want war.

According to this article,  “This letter’s premature release was ordered by Deep State warmonger Defense Department Deputy Eric Chewning, whom Trump immediately fired—thus making this warmonger yet another causality of Trump’s chaos theory masterplan to end his nation’s endless wars and bring a lasting peace to the Middle East. The only actual battlefield death, so far, in the maelstrom of this chaos remains General Soleimani—the sacrificed chess piece pawn who began the most critical game of war and peace ever seen since World War II.”

According to the article, Trump made a deal with the Iranians and the mourning about Soleimani is just theater. Crazy? You betcha. But it’s a hopeful crazy.  

It’s hard to believe that the US would simply abandon Saudi Arabia – we just sold them $100 billion worth of weapons. But these weapons sales may be the work of the warmongers, who just fattened their balance sheets. If it’s Trump vs the warmongers, maybe the president is ready to strangle the alliance between the Kingdom and the US in exchange for a chance at Middle East peace.  

The inexplicable “failure” of the US missile defense system in Saudi Arabia, the Swiss backchannel between the Iranians and the US, the Iranian notification to the US about their retaliatory missile strike, the surgical elimination of Soleimani with no other casualties, the reports of U.S. withdrawing from Iraq, Trump’s deal-making propensity, the collapse of the Petrodollar system, the fleeing of Saudi princes to Europe –  well, this could be good for both Iran and the US. Remember, the Saudis were involved in 9/11. Just today, Attorney General Barr announced that the shootings by the Saudi airman of three U.S. military personnel at a U.S. naval base in Pensacola, Florida, is an “act of terrorism.” Can all this spell doom for the Kingdom, and a chance at peace in the Middle East?

People my age have been hoping for Middle East peace for decades. Perhaps a wrecking ball like Trump is the guy to finally get it going. If nothing happens...well, nothing has been happening for 70 years. Before world peace can happen, Middle East peace must happen. Let’s watch events and see how things unfold.

Meditation

The Great Central Sun is a metaphor for the OM, the life-giving energy of the universe. I imagine the Great Central Sun as an orb with a smiley face, giving out the warmth of well being, its golden rays of light and love shining forth. I like to imagine the GCS inside my body, radiating warmth and well being, bathing the cells of the body. Here is a meditation for this. You can rearrange the words to suit you.

“Dear ones, the warmth, the light, and the love from the Great Central Sun penetrates our merkabas, our consciousness, and every cell of our physical bodies. It's benevolent rays exist within the fabric of space and time. The wisdom and warmth of the Great Central Sun is with us wherever we go in the physical universe."

Guided Meditation

Introduction

First, pick your favorite place in nature. I have an acre of land, so I imagine myself walking into my backyard. If you live in an apartment building or downtown in the concrete jungle, pick a spot in your favorite park or nature area.

Second, get the idea that the Great Central Sun is shining within you, is a part of you.

Meditation

You are walking in your favorite nature place. The sun is shining, the breeze is warm and soft on your face, the birds are chirping. As you walk you see a shimmering. It looks inviting and comforting, it beckons you. You feel that you’re about to experience something wonderful.

You enter the shimmering, still standing in your favorite nature place. You are standing on a small platform that reminds you of an elevator. The rays of the Great Central Sun are all around you. You feel a slight pressure on your feet and then you are standing in a cave at the center of the earth. This cave has a golden river of energy flowing through it. You are standing in it. This is the energy of Gaia, the source of human consciousness. You feel the nurturing energy of mother earth throughout your body. The rays of the Great Central Sun are still radiating through you as you anchor the supporting energy of the universe into our beloved planet.

Stand there as long as you like. You are aware now of Gaia’s magnetic field and how it supports your consciousness. You see the benevolent ecosystems of the earth and how Gaia supports and cocoons human life. You understand that Gaia is your friend and partner and that human consciousness interfaces with the consciousness of the earth. You understand how modern society has lost this connection, and how important it is to maintain it. As you realize this you feel a love wash from Gaia. You are now connected fully to the planet. You, Gaia, and all life everywhere are one harmonious whole.

Afterword

You have the choice to take the elevator back to the surface. Or, you can leave a part of your consciousness in the Gaia cave and remain connected to the planet as you move through  daily life. Imagine an umbilical cord of Gaia energy that comes out of your body and remains connected to the planet.

Combining this meditation with the first one, we connect ourselves to Gaia and the Great Central Sun. We go through life balanced, protected, and full of well being, anchoring and supporting Gaia and connecting our consciousness back to the planet.

Our religious and spiritual systems speak of love. That is wonderful. However, all of our modern religious/spiritual systems don’t take the planet into account, the friend and partner of humanity. Throughout the millennia only the indigenous have maintained this connection. It is time for “modern” society to do so as well. Gaia is the life giver.

A Note about the New Year

2020, if you add the numbers, is 4. 4 is the earth energy, the energy of Gaia. It is foundational energy. 2020 is a year to celebrate Gaia and our human connection to this beautiful planet.

A Word about Donald Trump

Let’s look at “Donald Trump” numerologically.

D-o-n-a-l-d is 4+6+5+1+3+4 = 23. 23 is not a master number so we add the 2 and the 3 to get 5. 5 is the number for CHANGE.

T-r-u-m-p is 2+9+3+4+7 = 25. 25 is not a master number so we add the 2 and the 5 to get 7. 7 is the number for INTROSPECTION, for looking inside. Clearly this is the exact opposite of  Donald Trump’s personality, but this number represents the effect Trump is having. People are waking up, they are demanding answers, they are looking within and wondering WTF is going on.

Combine the 5 and the 7 and you get 12. 12 is not a master number so we add the 1 and the 2 to get 3. 3 represents the CATALYST. In chemistry a catalyst is an agent that is added to a solution that sparks an increased chemical reaction. Or, “One that precipitates a process or event, especially without being involved in or changed by the consequences.” Well, Donald Trump is certainly sparking things up and he doesn’t seem to be affected at all by what he’s doing. People either love him or hate him. He is causing an enormous reaction both here in the US, and all over the world.

Notice that Donald Trump is the 45th president. 4+5=9.

9 is the energy of COMPLETION, for the number system goes 0 through 9 and then starts over again. Donald Trump represents the completion of a cycle: an old cycle of old, dark  energy that has dominated the planet for 5,000 years.

The 46th president, whoever it is, has the 1 energy, for 4+6 = 10. 10 is not a master number so we add the 1 and the 0 to get 1. 1 is the energy of NEW BEGINNINGS. That’s a refreshing thought, isn’t it?

Trump’s middle name is John. That’s 1+6+8+5 = 20 = 2+0 = 2.

2 in numerology represents the DUALITY. Isn’t that appropriate for this guy? He is the living incarnation of one side vs. the other side. If you combine the three numbers of his name you get 5+7+2 = 14. 14 is not a master number so we add 4 and 1 to get 5. CHANGE. Donald John Trump is the agent of change on the planet. He’s a catalyst.

Things are not always as they seem. God works in mysterious ways. IMHO God has sent the unlikeliest agent of change into our midst, to break apart the bonds of old energy so that the Light can penetrate the darkness.

Happy New Year!

Before you read this understand that I don't have any "sources." I'm just a civilian sitting at his desk doing some research. The old saying is, "Those who don't know talk, and those who do, can't." But here goes anyway.

Raise your hand if you think that the President of the United States has control over the U.S. military.

The president is supposedly commander-in-chief, but this doesn’t include the military-industrial complex (MIC). President Eisenhower told us that way back in January 1961. A good example is what happened when Trump ordered U.S. troops out of Syria. The soldiers didn’t move out of the country, they were just recycled to guard the Syrian oilfields.

We want to bring our soldiers home. But we did leave soldiers because we’re keeping the oil,” said Trump on Friday, [Nov 1], before adding, “I like oil. We’re keeping the oil.”

https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2019-11-04/trump-syria-oil-problems

Seriously? Here’s a graph of US oil imports by country:

https://www.kjmaclean.com/Newsletters/US_crude_imports_by_country.jpg

Syria isn’t even on the list. So why are U.S. troops in Syria? Ask the MIC. War is good for the balance sheet.

Let me interpret Trump’s statement above: “I have no control over where our troops are going. Syria doesn’t export oil to the US. But if I don’t go along they’ll make lots of trouble for me. So I’ll try to tell you this tongue-in-cheek.” If you substitute “military-industrial complex” for the words “we” and “I” in sentences 2-4 you get the meaning.

On Nov 3, Trump meets with Recep Tayyip Erdoğan in the Oval Office. He says it again.  

We’re keeping the oil. We have the oil. The oil is secure. We left troops behind only for the oil.”

https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2019/nov/13/donald-trump-syria-oil-us-troops-isis-turkey 

Substitute “military-industrial-complex” for “we” and you have the meaning.

ABC News explained that keeping Syria’s oil is illegal:

After President Donald Trump said on Monday the U.S. will be "keeping the oil" in northeastern Syria, his administration is looking into the "specifics," according to a senior State Department official -- but it's prompted renewed cries that doing so is a war crime.

“Trump has a long history of calling for the U.S. to "take the oil" in the Middle East, in Iraq and Syria in particular. But any oil in both countries belongs to their governments, and according to U.S. law and treaties it has ratified, seizing it would be pillaging, a technical term for theft during wartime that is illegal under U.S. and international law.

"We're keeping the oil," Trump said Monday to a conference of police chiefs in Chicago. "I've always said that -- keep the oil. We want to keep the oil, $45 million a month. Keep the oil. We've secured the oil."

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/keeping-oil-syria-trump-considered-war-crime/story?id=66589757

There it is again. Trump is pointing out that the actions of the MIC are illegal, and there’s nothing a President of the United States can do about it. Did anyone get it? Nope. Appalling? Damn right it is!  

Dr. Steven Greer of the Disclosure Project told us a long time ago that the President of the United States is 20-something security clearances below “need to know” level regarding the black, hidden, special access programs, which are the heart of the MIC. These programs are way, way beyond Congressional oversight and are funded secretly. They are beyond public scrutiny. The president (and Congress) hasn’t a clue what’s happening in these programs. The president has the authority to appoint the Secretary of Defense and other officials in the DoD. But he doesn’t have authority over the MIC.

Did Barack Obama want troops in Afghanistan? My guess is no. Remember what happened after President Obama received the Nobel Prize in 2009? The MIC increased troop strength in Afghanistan a few weeks later, making the award a complete joke. That was the MIC’s message to Obama: “ You’re just the president. Make speeches, look presidential. We’ll take care of our business, which is the business of profiting from war.”

Do you seriously think Obama had any control over that? I don’t think so. Like Trump, he had to go along. Or else.

Of course, the war criminal George W. Bush happily went along with the MIC. He was the MIC’s man in the White House. No problems there! War on Terrorism, yay!

Trump is trying to tell us this. The tweet below, to me, is so absurd it’s proof positive that the president understands his position vis-a-vis the MIC and is trying to tell us. It’s the ultimate troll.

DogTrumpTweet.jpg

Ladies and germs, this is called TROLLING the media. Because of course, this dog was a key factor in capturing and killing Baghdadi? How can anyone take this seriously? Most of Trump’s tweets are sarcastic, contemptuous even, of the mass media. He’s trying to send people a message, but it’s not getting through apparently.  

So: the president was telling us that he wants troops out of Syria but the MIC doesn’t. Whoever is giving the orders to the troops isn’t listening to the president!

Those reading may be too young to remember JFK. On November 23, 1963, the President of the United States was publicly executed on a street in Dallas, Texas. This was the corporate warmonger state coming out into the open and announcing: “We're in charge now.” This was two short years after Eisenhower’s famous “beware of the MIC” speech in 1961. Coincidence, of course. Just another “conspiracy theory.”

After that we got Vietnam, two wars in the Gulf, Afghanistan, Panama, Libya, Syria, attempted coups in Venezuela and Bolivia ...

Why are we in Afghanistan? No one knows. We do know that after spending $1 trillion dollars on that pointless war, U.S. officials constantly lied about the “progress” they were making.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2019/investigations/afghanistan-papers/afghanistan-war-confidential-documents/

It's pretty simple: War is good for the balance sheets of corporations like Raytheon, Mitre, Lockheed, Haliburton, Booz-Allen Hamilton, etc. All for profit.

Don’t blame Trump for this. People say, “Trump ran on getting our troops out and ending foreign wars, but nothing is happening.” Well, he’s butting heads with the endless war crowd, the people who are making money from war.

Who are these people?

We’re going to find out eventually, and it’s hopefully going to begin in 2020. Eventually the entire sordid history of these warmongers – sociopaths, every one of them – will come out. But that’s in the future.

Update 1/8/2020: After Trump ordered the killing of Soleimani the Iranians attacked Iraqi bases with missiles. I found this gem today:

So let's see: who has the power to get U.S. troops out of Iraq? The Commander-in-Chief. That's the president. Who has the power to countermand that order? Your guess is as good as mine. Somebody in the Pentagon who doesn't listen to the pres? A group of people who like war because it's good business? Clearly, if no U.S. troops are in countries that are conflict zones (like Iraq) then no harm can come to them.

This image might tell us a little more about the situation with Iran:

U.S. military bases in Muslim countries

Yup. Lots of chances for U.S. troops to come into harm's way. A perfect scenario for the warmongers.

Progressives rightly say that Trump raised the military budget over $100 billion, that he’s a big military supporter, and that this doesn’t serve the cause of peace. All sane persons want peace, not war. But what happens when a president wants troops out, but the people in charge of those troops don't listen? It's a problem.

The Southern Border

I’ve been defending Trump solely because he’s the perfect guy at the perfect time. He’s here to crack open the darkness and expose the massive, global corruption networks that allow elites who control the world’s financial institutions to create an ocean of fiat money that is used to buy off politicians and entire governments, and to enable the free flow of drugs, arms, and most sickening, human beings and children.

That’s what free and open borders are about for the dark army.

Does anyone think that the Border Patrol controls our southern border? Our southern border is controlled by drug cartels and human traffickers who run drugs into our cities and abuse children and make money trafficking immigrants who come here for a better life. 

Here’s an article from 2015: https://www.judicialwatch.org/corruption-chronicles/dea-most-illegal-drugs-enter-via-mexico-cartels-greatest-criminal-threat-to-u-s/

And another from 2018: “Mexican Cartels ‘Absolutely’ Control the Southwest Border, Sheriff Says,” https://www.theepochtimes.com/mexican-cartels-absolutely-control-the-southwest-border-says-sheriff_2568412.html

The sad fact no one wants to confront is this: To clean up the evil and the darkness on our southern border, and across the planet, eventually our military will have to be used as a threat, or even a blunt weapon, against the drug cartels, the human traffickers, and the arms dealers. These networks are world wide. It’s not something anyone wants, but the magnitude of the corruption and the evil is massive. In Mexico, drug cartels control large swaths of the country.

https://www.globalresearch.ca/is-mexico-a-narco-state/19430

I don’t like it but I understand it: We need a strong military for the present. After the dark army networks are exposed and neutralized, we can turn swords into plowshares.

On the political front, Trump is going to keep banging. First came the OIG report about the weaponization of the FBI. Next is the FISA declassification documents, which Trump agreed to in 2018. These may come out in his defense if the House ever delivers the articles of impeachment to the Senate. After that comes the report from attorney John Durham next summer, who began his investigation back in 2017.

All of this to break apart the network of sociopaths who run our planet. Donald Trump isn’t just a U.S. phenomenon. Trump is a huge, massive, planetary wild card that no one saw coming. He’s doing what he’s supposed to be doing. He’s a blunt instrument that no person with any sensitivity will like. But he’s necessary.

Because of Trump, whether you're left or right, people aren’t sitting on the fence anymore. People are looking for answers now. Those who still are on the fence won’t be able to stay there for very long.

The Intelligence War

Things are not always as they seem. A massive intelligence war is being fought in this country behind the scenes, between white and black hats in the intelligence community: the NSA, the CIA, and the FBI. The mainstream media is there for covering fire.

Snowden exposed the NSA and its domestic intelligence gathering programs back in 2013. The controversial FISA warrants used data gathered by the NSA. No one needs to be told the sordid history of the CIA, an organization that lies as a matter of course and that has been involved in coup after coup, regime change war after regime change war. The CIA needs the FBI because the CIA can’t spy domestically. Snowden showed us how the FBI gathers data domestically and shares it with the CIA.

Going to the Light Is Difficult

Going to the Light is difficult because it means confronting the darkness. Light exposes darkness. Don’t let your knickers get in a twist when some of this info starts coming out. It’s not worse than ever, but better than ever, for the light is beginning to shine powerfully into dark places where the world’s cockroaches are hiding. The worst cockroaches are those who traffic human beings.

Light >> Dark. It’s happening. Some of the unlikeliest players are leading the charge.

Here is a meditation/mantra I have found helpful. Hopefully it will benefit you as well.

Dear ones, the warmth, the light, and the love from the Great Central Sun penetrates our merkabas, our consciousness, and every cell of our physical bodies. It's benevolent rays exist within the fabric of space and time. The wisdom and warmth of the Great Central Sun is with us wherever we go in the physical universe."

Today I discovered something shocking to me.

I was raised in Detroit, in a working class neighborhood. I went to school with whites and blacks. In the summers during high school, I worked downtown at the Wayne County Road Commission, earning money for college, in primarily black neighborhoods. I learned to love the heart-centered nature of African American culture. I grew to love jazz and soul music. I lived in cities until 1991, when I moved out to the country to avoid high property taxes I couldn’t afford to pay.

Now I’m an old fogey who lives in a white neighborhood next to a big farm. I chose the area primarily because it is beautiful, and quiet. I live on a dirt road in a little one-story ranch house with an acre of land. I do a lot of writing so I like the quiet. I love to go for walks in the neighborhood. I still listen to jazz and soul music (mostly James Brown) but I’ve been involved in metaphysical pursuits for the past twenty years. I don’t think about race because I grew up in, and lived a lot of my adult life in, multicultural areas.

But today I read an article on a website called Blackgenocide.org, a site I came across while doing research. I want to show you what it says.

Minority women constitute only about 13% of the female population (age 15-44) in the United States, but they underwent approximately 36% of the abortions.

According to the Alan Guttmacher Institute, black women are more than 5 times as likely as white women to have an abortion.

BlackAbortionGraph.jpg

On average, 1,876 black babies are aborted every day in the United States.

This incidence of abortion has resulted in a tremendous loss of life. It has been estimated that since 1973 Black women have had about 16 million abortions. Michael Novak had calculated ‘Since the number of current living Blacks (in the U.S.) is 36 million, the missing 16 million represents an enormous loss, for without abortion, America's Black community would now number 52 million persons. It would be 36 percent larger than it is. Abortion has swept through the Black community like a scythe, cutting down every fourth member.’

A highly significant 1993 Howard University study showed that African American women over age 50 were 4.7 times more likely to get breast cancer if they had had any abortions compared to women who had not had any abortions.”

http://www.blackgenocide.org/black.html

The birth rate for the African American population is now less than two per 1,000. This is below the replacement rate.

Is it an exaggeration to claim that "the black man is near extinction"? Yeah, but this is a serious situation.

In 2018, the Wall Street Journal reported on this issue in an article titled, “Let’s Talk About the Black Abortion Rate.” The sub-title of the article is, “In New York City, thousands more black babies are aborted each year than born alive.” https://www.wsj.com/articles/lets-talk-about-the-black-abortion-rate-1531263697

Wow. Why haven’t we heard more about this? Why are most abortion clinics in neighborhoods where people of color live? Your guess is as good as mine.

I’m cognizant that I’m an old white guy and should leave this subject to those better qualified to speak on it. My wife tells me that it’s a woman’s issue and I don’t understand it, and I should just shut up. That’s probably true. But...every time I listen to John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins and Robert Glasper and Sean Jones and Joshua Redman I wonder how many other great musicians (and people) we’ve lost.

I saw this tweet last year. It visually expresses the thought I had about this after I read the article I quoted above.

Re my last blog post: Is Stacy Washington just another right-wing conspiracy theorist? Maybe. But I wonder.

Channeling

The wonderful presenter Lee Caroll channels Kryon, an entity who claims to be a representative of God. When I first encountered channeling almost 50 years ago with the Edgar Cayce material, my inherent skeptical nature rejected it immediately.

“What a bunch of bullshit!” I used to tell my sister-in-law, who was really into it. At that time I considered her to be a  space cadet. Then I discovered the Ra material in the 1980s. Later on, pioneers in this work like Neale Donald Walsh in his “Conversations with God” books made the idea of channeling more publicly acceptable. But I really wasn’t totally convinced until my step-brother Ricky called me one day in 1996 from British Columbia. Ricky rides horses and handles a gun like a frontiersman from the 19th century. He hasn’t yet even entered the 20th century, much less the 21st. He still doesn’t own a computer or a smart phone. I was kind of shocked to hear from him.

“Kenny,” he says, “go on the internet and look up a guy named Kryon.”

“What?” I say. “Who is Kryon?”

“Just do it. I don’t have a computer so I can’t tell you anything about it.”

 That was it. After that he hung up.

Considering I hadn’t talked to Ricky in almost ten years, this was a strange conversation. But there was something in his tone, an energy, that told me I had to do it. This was back in the 1990s when America Online was a big thing, and clicking on images actually linked you to another webpage! Anyway, I went to the Kryon website and read one of the channels. The first sentence made no sense but it hit me like a ton of bricks: “I am Kryon of magnetic service.” There was an energy there that went right through the computer screen and it caused a spiritual awakening for me. If you are a dead-head or a skeptic (same thing) you won’t get this, you’ll never get it until you either have an awakening, or you “die.” But I digress.

I gradually began to get into the Kryon messages. I began meditating and trying to discover my higher self. I eventually wrote a channeled book myself and did a radio show on Blog Talk Radio for several years called the Interview with Spirit show. In 2005, the day after my father died, I was walking along the dirt road by my house when suddenly he was there. Every day for a month we’d have a conversation and I wrote them up in a book titled I Love You Dad.

In November I described a crazy incident that happened to me while playing disk golf: I encountered a past life incident and went through it to a remarkable result.  This wasn’t surprising to me because my sister-in-law is head of the Traumatic Incident Reduction Association. TIR reduces emotional and psychological trauma with a powerful and easy to use approach. The point is, doing TIR can lead you to past life incidents. I had already “run” a few of these so I wasn’t surprised (but still amazed) when it happened playing disk golf.

Skepticism

Lee Carroll, during one of his channels of Kryon, says that when a loved one dies a part of their soul stays with you for your entire life. Kryon and I have had lots of arguments about concepts like this when I listen to a Lee Carroll channeling, because my skeptical side is always objecting. It says, “Kryon is like the general who sits behind the lines in his air-conditioned office as he sends his fighters (us) to do the dirty work of Spirit.” Kryon says he is a “helper” and we are “lightworkers.” My skeptical side says that this is just a justification for a sort of spiritual class society, where one side gets to have all the fun (and experience none of the misery) while the other guys are worker drones here in the physical. As above, so below.

My spiritual side laughs at this.

Kryon is an entity who has never been human; he’s totally, 100% connected to Source all the time. My intuition loves this and I soak it up because the energy that comes out of these presentations is so pure and powerful. It feels awesome. But Kryon says stuff like “the spiritual system on this planet is totally benevolent.” And, “The universe, and the earth, is total love.”

Statements like that drive my skeptical side crazy, for the obvious reason that (if you bother to investigate) this planet is dark; it is run by anti-social personalities who have created what David Korten calls an Empire consciousness of exploitation where billions live in poverty and a few control most of the wealth.

(Put THAT in your pipe and smoke it Kryon! My skeptical side says.)

“Stay on the bright side”

My wife has the obvious solution to this dilemma. “Don’t listen to the news. Stay on the bright side, put love and light into the forefront of your consciousness.” That’s what she does. And, I know that I volunteered to come here, as did everyone else. I’m not a victim.

But I am reminded of what our founding fathers told us in the Federalist Papers: that a free society depends on an informed public. My wife studiously avoids current events and knows nothing about the world outside her life. Kryon himself recommends that we avoid the news because it’s so negative. But that is counter-productive in my mind. You should be able to confront the dark AND stay in the light. So, because 90% of everything you read is propaganda or fake news these days, I feel that I have to investigate. I call it “getting a baseline reality.”

Handling any problem first requires an ability to face it. That means discovering the elements of the problem. So, I study info from the left and the right. It’s good to know the parameters and the most important memes in the current human consciousness. And that changes, literally, every day.

So, to get back to the purpose of this article. Kryon says that when a loved one dies, part of their soul is still with you. I know that’s true because of what happened in 2005 with my father. Last night it happened again.

The Clan MacLean

Before I tell you about that I have to tell you about the MacLeans, an old Scottish clan from the Inner Hebrides on the Isle of Mull. These Scottish clans constantly fought each other for centuries. The founder of the Clan MacLean, it is said, burned down a church with women and children from a rival clan in it. The clan apparently descended from “Gilleathan Na Tuaidh,” or Gillean of the Battleaxe.

Yeah. So there’s a bit of karma on the MacLean timeline and in the MacLean Akash.

There’s a darkness there. My father had it, felt it, and worked with it the best he could during his life. I’ve got it too. Sometimes I just get very angry and/or dark and I have to meditate for an hour or so and send as much light into the blackness as I can. It’s why I have listened to a Kryon channeling (or something inspirational) pretty much every day since 2002.

Last night I was feeling that old MacLean darkness just before I woke up. I remembered what Kryon said about the souls of loved ones staying with you. So I decided to have a conversation with my father and ask for his help. Hell, why not? Even if I’m making it up, maybe it would help. So I tried to contact Dad. The first picture I got was Dad sitting on the porch of his house with his head in his hands. He was in bad shape. When this happened Dad was about the same age as I am now, about 68. My step-brother Ricky was there with his arm around the old man.

“Hey, why didn’t you talk to me?” I asked him.

“Because you have that MacLean darkness too. Ricky was clean of it.” Ricky already told me that he had driven from B.C. in Canada to help my old man back then, and his mom, who was married to my father at the time.

Then my father showed me how he had dealt with the MacLean karma for most of his life. It was a fascinating energetic run-through of his previous life’s timeline. For some reason, after that, I felt my own depressing darkness go away.

Am I free of the MacLean karma? Probably not, but who knows. I do know that if it comes up again I can ask my father for help.

One of the fascinating metaphysical things I’ve discovered is the difference between the Akash of your present life genetic line, and your personal Akash, which includes all the past lives you’ve ever led. In this lifetime I’m mostly Scottish, but I have affinities for everything NOT Scotch. I love Afro-Cuban music, jazz, and have a great affinity for the cultures of India, Latin America, and Africa. This isn’t unusual at all, for there are a lot of old souls with lifetimes in other areas and cultures they live in now. It just shows that metaphysically, life here on earth is a complicated business.

Current Events -- ThoughtCrime

In a time of polarization, disagreeing with someone may get you yelled at, or worse. Is it a crime to go against the prevailing narrative? George Orwell wrote about that in 1984. Disagreeing with Big Brother, even in thought, was a serious offense called Thoughtcrime. Today, those who think outside the box are often called “conspiracy theorists.” This accusation is a form of Thoughtcrime, for conspiracy theorists are considered to be mentally imbalanced, or even insane.

Have I committed a Thoughtcrime by saying that I can talk to my dead father? Materialists would say that I’m crazy, but that makes a lot of “spiritual” people crazy as well.

Interestingly, the New York Times has already suggested that that a person who believes in a conspiracy theory may be insane:

“Now, Mr. Comello’s paranoia is being litigated in a Staten Island court, where he is charged with the murder of [mob boss] Mr. Cali, known as Franky Boy. His lawyer has taken the first steps in a legal battle that hinges on a question made for the internet age: At what point does belief in a far-right conspiracy theory make you legally insane?”

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/12/06/nyregion/gambino-shooting-anthony-comello-qanon.html?smtyp=cur&smid=tw-nytimes

Comello says that QAnon made him shoot the mob boss. QAnon is the “far right” conspiracy theory hated by the mainstream press. Comello’s lawyer is using the insanity defense.

I wonder if believing in a far-left conspiracy theory also makes you insane? Are there any far-left conspiracy theories, or are they all far-right? The Times doesn’t weigh in on that.

The if-you-believe-in-a-conspiracy-theory-you’re-crazy theme was picked up by much of the mainstream media, thus popularizing a thought crime Big Brother might throw you in jail for. The far-right conspiracy theory the NYT mentioned is QAnon. We do live now in Orwell’s time of “universal deceit,” I think most everyone will agree with that! So of course, like any good investigator, I decided to read every Q drop there is. Because as soon as the MSM says something is horrible, any sane person immediately finds out about it. I also check out the NYT, the Washington Post, and other independent news services, and pay attention to the impeachment hearings. I listen to the Jimmy Dore show, a comedian and a socialist who supports Bernie Sanders. It’s all part of understanding the baseline reality.

Am I guilty of Thoughtcrime by reading Q Anon, Trump tweets, and following Fox News? On the left they might say yes.

Am I guilty of Thoughtcrime by listening to Jimmy Dore, looking at The Guardian and the Washington Post, and reading the Daily Beast? Those on the right might say yes.

Am I guilty of Thoughtcrime by reading blatant propaganda websites like WhatDoesItMean.com? (This is a crazy site that, if you can read through the bullshit, sometimes connects the dots.) Those on both the left and right might give a resounding yes.

Apparently Trump is also guilty of Thoughtcrime. On page 6 of the report (the House Judiciary Report on Impeachment) it says:

The question is not whether the President’s conduct could have resulted from permissible motives. It is whether the President’s real reasons, the ones in his mind at the time, were legitimate. 

https://judiciary.house.gov/sites/democrats.judiciary.house.gov/files/documents/HCM%20FINAL%20v.3.pdf

Apparently if you think about something bad (even if you don't do it) you're guilty! I don't care whether Trump is impeached. But if he is impeached I want it to be about real, tangible things, not Thoughtcrime.

People who went against the norm were burned at the stake in the middle ages. They were the first ones Pol Pot put up against the wall and shot. In Soviet Russia dissenters were shoved into the Gulag; in Xi’s China, in one of his concentration camps where he puts minorities and dissidents, harvests their organs, and sells them on the international market. In the US, dissenters are sent to jails run by private investors who make money housing prisoners. More than likely, these people were also guilty of Thoughtcrime. George Orwell said it best: "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act."

Is a conspiracy theory always just a crazy, false assertion? Maybe it is. Maybe it's a label assigned to those who think differently than the party line promoted by mass media. To find out you have to investigate and think for yourself. This process -- rational thought and research -- may automatically lead you into committing a Thoughtcrime. It's something to think about.

Trump Is the First Wild Card

“It’s no wonder you have emotional problems,” you say. “If you look at the dark stuff you’re going to feel rotten.”

Well, for ten years prior to 2016 I concentrated on spiritual stuff and avoided the news like the plague. But the dark stuff was already there well before I got back into current events, as a result of the rise in consciousness on this planet. Our Akash’s are being cleaned out, whether you follow the news or not. The way out of the mess of low consciousness is to confront it and deal with it. It’s happening to everyone, and collectively. (I choose to do this consciously by following current events.)

That’s why we have Donald Trump. The first Wild Card.

When Trump won the election despite all odds, I knew that the hand of spirit was involved. Because Trump was an egotistical TV star on a really bad TV show. He was a complete outsider, and we know what happens to outsider candidates like Ralph Nader, Ross Perot, and Jill Stein. They lose, and they lose big. Hillary had all the funding and support of literally 95% of the news media, which characterized Trump as a buffoon. A day before the election Hillary’s odds of victory (depending on the news source) was between 80% and 99%. She should have won easily!

Why then did Trump win? The Hand of Spirit intervened.

Folks, Donald Trump isn’t responsible for your or my personal problems, he’s not responsible for the nation’s problems, or the world’s problems. He’s just the messenger, and it’s pointless to shoot the messenger because there’s always another messenger! As Michael Corleone said in The Godfather movie, “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” Love him or hate him, we know who Donald Trump is because he’s so transparent and blunt and obvious. He’s not fooling anyone. He’s forcing people to determine for themselves what is right and what is wrong. This gets people looking inward, which is a good thing in this amoral, materialist society.

The darkness on this planet has to be confronted or the planet won’t make it. Simple as that. What better person to stir up the darkness than Donald Trump? He is a perfect instrument for Spirit. An unlikely one, I’ll admit.

Trump is the battering ram knocking the old system apart.

The Global Corporate State

You didn’t think the old system needed cleaning? Look around you at the global corporate state run by one-percenter elites who own the news media, buy off governments and government leaders, suppress new medical and other technology that could free humanity, and create global institutions like the IMF and the World Bank that exploit the resources of weaker countries for the benefit of the elites who run them.  

People hate Trump because he’s an egomaniac, he loves to troll people he doesn’t like, he’s contentious and rude, and he doesn’t care about convention. That’s because he’s here to break convention and expose the dark underbelly of society. And folks, he‘s just getting started.

Trump is going to be impeached and then we’ll have a trial in the Senate.

Then we’re going to find out some things.

It’s going to be an amazing, heartbreaking, uplifting, impossible 2020. Get set and stay centered in your truth!

THE STOLEN WATCH

By Khurshid Ali and Kenneth J. M. MacLean

In one class of an elite college, there were 30 students.  One of the students got a very precious wrist watch from his father as a birthday gift. He put this watch on and went to the college. With pride he showed it to everyone and received praise. Then, during break time, he put the watch on his desk and went outside. When he came back, the watch was not there. Somebody had stolen it.  He got very worried and told his professor, “I have lost the precious watch I received from my father as a birthday gift.”

“How was it lost?” the professor asked.

“During the break I put it on my desk and went outside. When I returned, the watch was not there.”

“Well, this happened just now, so no new person could have come into the room, nor could anyone have left. This means that the watch must be here. I hope we can find it.”

The  professor was sure that he could find the watch but he did not desire that anyone would see who had stolen the watch. He wanted to save the thief. The professor found a solution. “Every student must blindfold himself. All of you stand in a row.”

The professor then went down the row, tapping the pockets of each of the students until he found the watch in one of the student’s pockets. But he did not stop his search until he reached the end of the row. Therefore, none of the students knew which of them was the thief.

The  professor then continued with his lecture and after class returned the watch to the student who lost it without telling anyone who the thief was.

During the following days the thief became more and more worried, for this was not the first time he had stolen, even though he had never been caught.

 “What if the professor tells the dean that I was the thief? Then my whole story will come out. What if he tells my parents? I will be expelled.”

The thief worried and grew more and more anxious. Finally, he could take it no more. He went to the professor and abased himself. “I am so sorry I stole that watch. I thank you so much for not revealing to anyone that I was the thief.”

The professor smiled at the student. “But I did not know who the thief was until you came to me.”

The student was shocked. “But how is this? You knew who I was because you took the watch from my pocket before returning it.”

“No. I blindfolded myself before I conducted the search. I was wondering if you would come to me and admit your guilt. Now that you have done so, I am satisfied.”

The thief was amazed.

“You see,” the professor said, “I did not wish to know who the thief was.  I did not want to remember the incident.  My job is not to find the weaknesses of my students, but to help them live a better life.  A person and his actions are two different things. We can choose our actions.  Deep inside, every person is good.  Our actions, however,  depend upon the time, the circumstances, and our  thoughts, and change with time.  At different times or under a different situation, a person might behave differently.  We should not form a final opinion of anyone unless we give them a chance to right their wrong. You have done so, and I am proud of you.”

From that moment the thief’s life changed. He told the professor of his other thefts and how he would make restitution. He vowed then and there to only do good in the world, and help others. “I will show the patience and the compassion to others that you showed to me.”

The professor had tears in his eyes. “I believe you. I think you will be a force for good in the world.”

The former thief kept his promise. He made restitution to all he had robbed. Over the years he made enough money in his job to found a small school that would teach the principles of tolerance and compassion, for he had learned these things the hard way. He named the school after his professor.

At first he had trouble getting students, for in this world compassion comes a distant second to making money, ambition, and self-promotion. But gradually the school began to gain a reputation for integrity and adherence to the highest educational standards. The school flourished.

He invited the professor, now an old man, to give a lecture to his students at their graduation. The professor invited his former student up on the stage, and asked him to describe that long-ago incident.

At first the founder was concerned that his reputation would be sullied and that he would lose students if he told the truth about his past. The professor looked at him gravely. Finally the founder smiled and realized that this was a further test of his integrity. He described the incident truthfully, and all he had done. “And so you see,” he said to the audience, “that my old professor was able, without punishment or even mentioning my thievery to anyone, to turn my entire life around.”

The professor said, “It is better to not try to know bad things about others.  If a person makes a mistake, he should  be given a chance to realize it and correct it by himself.  Just imagine, if this incident of stealing had not happened, my student would never have thought about founding this wonderful school.”

One of the students in the audience objected. “By ignoring thievery, we promote thievery,” he said. “To stop thieves the consequences for their wicked actions must be severe.”

The professor smiled. “Before we look at the weaknesses or the vices in others, we must look at our own vices. If we do not want others to know or talk about our vices, then why should we do so? Even when we notice someone's faults, we must remember that he or she also has good in them. Rather than castigating wrong behavior, it is better to recognize the good and praise a person for that. In doing so, we will help him improve and become a better person. And most important, seeing the good in others is a source of heartfelt pleasure for us.”

The professor then said, “Thievery, and other dark things, only come when we fail to see the good in people. Those who we have abandoned then turn on us, and on society. Ponder this.”

The parents and the students left the lecture with a lot to think about.

After the speech, the founder of the school was still concerned that parents would not want to send their students to a school run by an admitted thief, for the founder had proclaimed loud and wide that his school was run only by those with the highest integrity. But over the next year, the school increased its membership even more.

Such is the power of light when it is recognized in others over the power of dark to punish.

What do you think?

THE POWER OF LOVE

By Khurshid Ali and Kenneth J. M. MacLean

Once upon a time a very loving family came upon ill fortune. They lost all their belongings and money, and in the end even the house they lived in was taken by the bank so that the family became homeless.

However, the father, the mother, two sons, and two daughters were united in love. The parents respected their children and the children loved their father and their mother.

The father said, “God is kind and our bond of love is strong. This misfortune is only temporary. It is a trial for us but we will stand up to it and come out successful.”

The weather was warm. Three miles from the neighborhood there was a small forest. The family had nothing. It was either go downtown to the homeless shelter, or live temporarily outdoors in the woods. The father said, “We will go to the forest. There we will make a temporary hut and try our luck. I will seek work in the city and when our good days come, we will take back our house and live in it again.”

The father was very confident because he believed in the power of love.

So they all piled into the car with some canned goods and drove to a small dirt parking lot that bordered the woods and went into the forest. While they were looking for a suitable place, the family saw a small clearing among a stand of trees with deadwood from a fallen tree that they could use for fires. A small stream ran through the clearing. They thought this was a good place, so near that tree they put all their belongings and took a rest. The father, who was a carpenter, began weaving tree branches together to form a small hut. While this work was in progress they saw a very unusual looking bird sitting on a tree branch.

The family was hungry so they decided to prepare some food.

The father asked the son to go and collect some wood so that they could make a fire.

“OK father.”

The bird on the tree was watching this. He said “Ha ha ha, what a bunch of losers you are!” But the family did not care and went on with their work.

The father told the daughter to take the pail and to go to the stream and fetch some water.

“Yes dad, I will do it.” She took the pail and went to the stream and filled it up.

The bird began to laugh again at the family.

The family did not pay any attention to it and went on with their work. Soon the father had made a snug little shelter and covered the roof with boughs from an evergreen tree to keep out the rain. The family stood outside their hut and admired it.

The father asked his wife to make some food. “Yes my dear I will do it. We have enough canned goods to last us for a while.”

The bird laughed very loudly. “What will you do when your food runs out?”

The father looked at the bird. This was a very unusual bird, large and brightly colored. The father said, “Oh, no problem. When our food runs out we will catch you, kill you, and then cook you.” Then he spoke to all members of the family. “This bird looks tasty. Let us catch him and cook him right now.”

The family all said in unison: “Yes dad, let’s do it!”

Hearing this, the bird became frightened. He said, “No no, please don’t kill me. I am a poor bird, but I know here in this forest there is a place where a treasure is buried. I will lead you to that treasure.”

The father agreed and the bird flew away. The family followed. After a half mile of walking there was a black stone, the bird asked them to turn over the stone. Under that stone was a hole and when they dug into the ground they found an ornately enameled box. Inside the box were two oilskins, each containing an ancient manuscript upon which maps were drawn. The family was very happy and they thanked the bird. The father took one of the manuscripts, leaving the other in the box. He drove to a bookseller in the city that sold rare manuscripts and showed him the map. The bookseller was astounded. “Do you know what this is?”

The father shook his head. “It is valuable, I’d stake my life on that.”

“Valuable indeed! This map is at least 300 years old and should fetch a great price. If you will permit, I will auction the map for some collectors I know, and take 10% of the proceeds.”

This was agreed. The old map fetched an astounding price, enough for the family to pay the debt on their house and move back in. The family was grateful and began to live a happy life once more.

Their neighbor saw this with surprise. One day he asked how had it all happened. The mother told the story of how they were going to live in the forest until the father could find work. She told him about the unusual bird and how it had made fun of them. “When we threatened to kill him, it led us to the treasure.”

The neighbor thought they could do the same. So they went to the same forest and found the tree where the bird was sitting. They found the shelter. But the family had forgotten to bring food and it would be dark soon. They didn’t want to walk all the way back to the car and decided to spend the night.

The father said, “We are hungry, we need something to eat.” He asked his son, “Go and collect some wood so that we can make a fire.”

The son said, “Why should I go? You are sitting and not doing anything, you do it.”

The bird laughed.

The father became angry. “You stupid bird, who are you to laugh? This is a family matter.”

Then father then said to the daughter, “Go and fetch some water with the pail.”

The daughter said, “Fetching water is work for a man. Let my brother do it.”

The bird laughed again. The father said, “You scoundrel, shut up!”

The father asked his wife to cook something, for they were all hungry.

His wife said, “You fool! We have no food, we didn’t bring any.”

The bird said, “You have nothing to cook, what will you do? You are a very stupid family. I know beggars smarter than you.”

The father became enraged. “We will catch and kill you and then cook you if you don’t show us the treasure!”

The bird said, “Ha ha ha, I am not afraid of you people. You are not united, you squabble and bicker and don’t cooperate with each other, you can do nothing against me.”

“But you showed that other family the treasure! You must show us too.”

The bird said, “For that family I had great respect, for they were united in love and did not complain about their diminished circumstances. If that family had decided to catch me, they would have done so easily. But you people are stupid and I have no liking for you. Get away from here!” The bird flew away, laughing.

This family spent a miserable night in the woods. In the morning it began to rain. They had to trek three miles back to the parking lot, arguing and blaming each other all the way. 

Love isn’t just a concept. It results in harmony and cooperation, and sometimes, even good luck.

How do you transform human societies that have been mired in darkness for thousands of years? Through what I call wild cards.

This term I got from Isaac Asimov's Foundation series (specifically, the book Foundation and Empire). In this story, an unexpected human actor --- "The Mule" -- shockingly takes society away from the accepted predictions of psychohistorian Hari Seldon.

We have already had one Wild Card in politics -- President Trump. Nobody expected a goofy TV show host to actually win the presidency -- and then have an enormous worldwide influence. For better or worse, Trump is literally excoriating the old system and forcing people to wake up. It's no longer possible to be on the sidelines anymore, or straddle the fence.

Now, a second Wild Card has appeared in the entertainment industry -- Kanye West. All ten of the tunes on his new recording, Jesus is King, occupied the top ten on the Gospel music charts. https://www.forbes.com/sites/hughmcintyre/2019/11/11/kanye-west-makes-history-on-the-gospel-songs-chart/#5f4b691124b8

Remember when Kanye met with Donald Trump at Trump Tower on December 13, 2016? That was a shocker to the entertainment industry, and to everyone else. https://hollywoodlife.com/2016/12/13/why-did-kanye-west-meet-donald-trump-reason-meeting-multicultural-issues/

His seven-word tweet back in 2016, where he threw his support to Trump, literally scandalized the entire entertainment industry. Although West occasionally talked about God in his music he was basically a rapper and a secularist. Then, West suddenly did a 180 and proclaimed his devotion to God. And supported Trump. WTF?

But that's what Wild Cards do -- they do 180s.

Less well known is Kanye's visit to Russia two weeks before his meeting with Trump. According to Hollywood Life, West was in Moscow for business, meeting with subversive Russian fashion designer Gosha Rubchinskiy.

But apparently Kanye had what I call a severe reality adjustment while he was there. Most Americans believe Russia is evil -- a holdover from the days of communism, and from the ridiculous Russiagate stories that have demonized the Russians and that have tried to restart another Cold War. Our media has taught us to think that Russia is a totalitarian society. Well, it is an oligarchy run by Putin, but Russia is also Orthodox Christian. My guess is that Kanye became aware of that and had some kind of spiritual awakening. Otherwise, why would he meet with such a hated figure as Donald Trump so soon after? That's my theory anyway. Of course, Russiagate believers will say that the evil Vladmir Putin subverted Kanye's mind just as he did Trump's. But really, is Russia that important? When was the last time you saw a "Made in Russia" sticker on anything? They don't make anything anybody wants, their economy is nothing compared to the US and China. The only influence they have is their nuclear weapons, but even Israel and Pakistan have them. Russia is a comparatively minor player on the world stage; a player that has been lifted to almost AntiChrist proportions by the U.S. media.

What makes Kanye a true Wild Card are his "popup Sunday Services" in which thousands pay to hear sermons about God and be entertained. Fox News sent a church-going reporter to attend one of Kanye's Sunday Services, and this is what he reported: https://www.foxnews.com/opinion/kanye-west-sunday-service-jonathan-morris

Chris Yee, writing in Christianity Today, also went to one of Kanye's worship services. He drove 400 miles to LA just to satisfy his curiosity.

“He’s tapping into an urban market,” says Susie Seiko, an LA musician and longtime West fan. Seiko, who frequents multiple churches in the area including Hillsong Church LA, is excited about Kanye’s new direction. “He’s showing the world that you can believe in God and still be excited and lit about music.”

Called “Sunday Service,” these pop-up worship events were originally described by Kanye’s wife Kim Kardashian West as a “healing experience” to “start off your week.” The initial events were usually private and hosted Hollywood A-listers like Brad Pitt and Katy Perry. Back then, I couldn’t help but assume that the services were more about self-promotion than sincerity, and that like many artists before him, Kanye was commodifying the church experience for clout and profit.

But following a widely attended Sunday Service at Coachella earlier this year, where the visibly distressed rapper wept during the performance, something changed. West said that afterwards he became “born again.”

With most shows now open to the public, the crowd, filled with the inevitable mismatch of hypebeasts and hipsters drawn to LA headliners, seems to validate Seiko’s claim. His most diehard fans seem to be taking this newfound faith to heart. Juan Rosales, an LA native who calls West “one of the greatest rap artists ever,” has not attended church in years, but says that the lyrics of “Closed on Sunday” are making him rethink the idea of the Sabbath. “The Bible says you shouldn’t work on Sunday, so I want to use that day to reconnect with family members and go to church more often.”

While many are embracing West’s new God-centered music (some have even skipped their weekly church service to attend the event), others from non-religious backgrounds say that West is their first real exposure to Christianity. Pasha Esmaili has never stepped inside a church before but loves to watch the services online. “[Kanye’s] the only person who can make me like this kind of music. I’m not religious, but even him playing this makes me feel some type of way. It’s weird,” he says.

West's worship services, and the exploding sales of his new recording, sounds like a cultural phenomenon. TMZ reports that this Sunday, West will bring his worship services to Houston Texas at the Lakewood Church, where he'll appear before 45,000 live, and a 10,000,000 TV audience.

Kanye West may have his biggest audience yet for a Sunday Service, because we've learned he's agreed to take the stage for Joel Osteen's incredibly popular Sunday ritual.

Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ ... Ye and Joel have been talking fairly regularly recently ... they've become friends, especially since Kanye has doubled down in his devotion to God.

We're told the plan is for Kanye to show up at Joel's 11 AM service in Houston this coming Sunday at the Lakewood Church. Kanye will walk up to the pulpit and have a conversation with Joel that will last between 20 and 30 minutes.

Our sources say Joel wants his congregation -- which stands 45,000 strong -- and his TV audience -- which stands at 10 million in the U.S. alone -- to hear how Kanye has overcome significant adversity in his life.

As one source put it, "Kanye used to be about nothing greater than himself. Now it's all about a higher power." BTW, Kanye has echoed this sentiment before. We're told Joel will ask Kanye to contrast his life then and now.

Kanye West isn't just another hypocritical TV evangelist, although his secular critics claim he's a sellout. Kanye is a Wild Card. No telling how big he's going to get, and what other Wild Cards will show up before the Biggie -- the 2020 presidential election.

In an earlier blog post, I wrote that "nobody expected this." That's because Wild Cards are totally unpredictable. The good news? Wild Cards are a sign of an evolving society, a society that is wresting itself away from the control of elitists who use political and economic institutions for their benefit.

The history of our planet has been intervals of peace between countless wars paid for and begun by elites. That is going to stop because people aren't going to put up with it anymore. That's what the great awakening on this planet is all about.

Are you frightened about current events? Don't be. In the past the fix was in, the masses were kept quiet by a complacent news media that reflected the viewpoints of the warmongers. Many people long for that past because the darkness was hidden and they could live their lives without seeing the dark underbelly of human societies. Now it's being exposed and that makes people uncomfortable. Well, take heart from these words by Thomas Jefferson, in a letter to James Madison on January 30, 1787: “I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.”

The political debate is raging. Millenials love socialism because they think it’s a system that values people more than the corporatist capitalism we live in now. Some people even favor going all the way to Communism. Everyone agrees that fascism and Naziism are terrible.

These –isms serve to keep us fighting each other. In a previous blog post I described how socialism, communism, corporate capitalism, and naziism are identical. (See “Are You Confused?” https://kjmaclean.com/wordpress/?p=507)

They are all materialistic and suppress the higher qualities of tolerance, love, and compassion. If humanity is ever to end the endless wars and realize its potential, we will have to abandon these old –isms and embrace new ones.

One of my favorite political commentators is Jimmy Dore, an ardent socialist (”progressive”) and a big Bernie Sanders fan. Dore digs out the facts and is a brilliant political commentator who will criticize anyone on the left or the right. But Dore and his panel (and Bernie) have a fuzzy view of socialism, thinking it is a benign lovey-dovey system that is focused on bringing about greater human potential. This flies in the face of facts. Perhaps Dore is talking about a “new” socialism, because socialist states in the past have been totalitarian dictatorships run by psychopaths and mass murderers like Hitler, Pol Pot, Stalin, and Mao. A socialist state is an authoritarian, completely centralized government where power devolves to a few elites, shutting out the rest of us. To see this examine the scum who ran Nazi Germany, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, Stalin and Lenin’s Soviet Union, and Xi Jinping’s frightening AI-BigTech state where the goal is control of 1.4 billion people by a few thousand. Yeah, let’s not go that route!

I’m all in favor of a more compassionate –ism, which I call Compassionateism. This is a system that, unfortunately, depends on higher consciousness. We’re getting there, but it’s going to take some time.

It is evident that younger people are sick and tired of the old system (not as sick and tired of it as I am!). The United States has been at war constantly for 30 years. Millennials have grown up with this, and have been living in a corporate capitalist state their entire lives. This is why so many are turning to socialism. But we gotta have a different kind of socialism, a kinder, gentler version.

The problem is that socialism, and the other old, worn-out –isms, come with too much baggage. In the 20th century socialist/communist states killed about 100 million of their own people. This kind of shit has got to stop. And Bernie Sanders isn’t the answer. Bernie talks a good game. He purports to represent the working class (as does the traditional socialist state), but Bernie has never worked a day in his life. Actually he has. In an interview I read a few months ago (which I’m not going to dig up) Bernie joked that yes, he did have a job once. He was a carpenter for a few weeks. He said, “I was a pretty bad carpenter.” Don’t get me wrong, I like Bernie’s honesty, which is why so many people are attracted to him. But how can a guy who has been feeding from the public trough his entire life represent the working class? Unfortunately, Bernie is just another elitist.

Corporate capitalism isn’t much better. The U.S. military has been the enforcement arm of the Deep State, along with other psychopaths in the CIA and the intel community. These warmonngers favor regime-change wars in Syria, Libya, Iraq, Afghanistan, Panama ... the list goes on. The CIA tries to topple leaders like Maduro in Venezuela even though they have been popularly elected, putting up U.S.-backed puppets like Guaido. (See “Venezuela's Opposition Leader, U.S. Embark On Risky Strategy For Military Uprising,” https://www.npr.org/2019/01/31/690468881/venezuelas-opposition-leader-u-s-embark-on-risky-strategy-for-military-uprising )

Why? Because Venezuela has lots of oil. Our involvement in Syria and Libya and Venezuela and Iraq have been to keep the war machine going. The war machine needs lots of oil, and it needs wars to justify its existence.

So OK, we need a new system. The old –isms just keep people fighting over which one of them is right. The answer is NONE OF THEM ARE.

Forget Trump, forget Bernie, forget the clowns in the Democratic debates (Except perhaps for Tulsi Gabbard, although she also believes in the old –ism of socialism).

Right now the world is engaged in throwing off the oppression of the global elites. It’s happening in Hong Kong, France, Britain, Chile and other South American governments. It will be exciting to see where that leads.

In a previous blog post I said that “human progress advances one grave at a time.” This is based on the famous Max Planck quote that science doesn’t progress because other scientists see the value in an opposing theory, but because the adherents to the old theories die off. That’s precisely what is going to happen with the old –isms.

The consciousness of humanity is rising. That’s why there is so much confusion these days, so much contention. The light is penetrating the darkness and people are waking up, it’s as simple as that. That’s why people are in the streets in Hong Kong, Chile, and in France. People are tired of the elites dictating policy from outfits like the IMF, the World Bank, and other institutions funded by the global wealthy elites.

What will happen? Old fogies like me will die off. New kids will come in, born in a new, higher energy. Yeah, some of them will go to the dark side because we live on a planet of free will. But most of them will go to the light.

Peace on earth is INEVITABLE.

It cannot be stopped by the warmongers, no matter how many regime-change wars they start. More and more people are fed up with a globalist-imposed darkness. These elitist organizations will collapse under the weight of their own internal contradictions and their own corruption.

For now, sit back and enjoy the ride, knowing that a bright future is assured even if events don’t yet reflect this. For in truth, the parade of insanity known as Current Events is being driven by the Light as it exposes corruption everywhere it touches.

One of the elements within the battle of dark and light on the planet is the resolution of technological advances with the awareness of the spiritual nature of the human being. We live on a planet of free will. That means individuals can freely decide to go to the dark or the light.

Right now the dark army on the planet is represented in the US by Big Tech and Big Pharma. In China the dark army is concentrated within the Chinese Communist Party and the PLA, the People’s Liberation Army.

In China, for example, dissidents – the Uyghur minority, the Falun Gong (Chinese religious group), dissident Christians, and others who won’t toe the party line – are held in concentration camps. Organs are taken from these dissidents and placed in organ banks for wealthy recipients in need of hearts, livers, and other organs. If you don’t believe it, listen to this.

It was Google who helped the CCP censor their internet, and who also helped Xi Jinping design his Sesame Credit social credit/surveillance system.

The dark armies in China and in the US are cooperating.

5G

With a 5G network, smart phones will be obsolete. Every electronic device will have a camera and a listening device. Light poles, traffic lights on the outside, refrigerators, stoves, TVs, toasters, computers, and anything else you use that is electronic on the inside. And of course your phone if you have one. Therefore, all citizens will be monitored 24/7. When the 5G network is fully operational it will be able to send voice, text, data, and multimedia almost instantaneously, anywhere in the world. The Alexa and Nest devices are trial runs for 5G, as are AI like Apples’s Siri. The commercials promoting this are everywhere. “Alexa, give me restaurants near me.” The idea is to make people dependent on AI and attenuate their cognitive abilities. (Research it yourself? What a novel idea!) This is the plan of Big Tech and the global elites, to monitor the plebes/deplorables anywhere and everywhere. The next step after that in the plan, 6G, is to use the 5G network in partnership with brain implants. Then the authorities will be able to monitor even your thoughts. Dissidents will be easy to identify. For the elites in the CCP and Big Tech, this is a dream scenario.

How do you like it so far?

Of course this will never come to fruition on a planet where the consciousness of everyone is rising. But it’s the plan, and it’s being implemented. The question is, will people wake up in time to see it? My guess is yes. 

I love technology, and don’t know what I would do without it. Technology is a good thing, and I think AI will eventually be used in a helpful fashion. But technology that promotes and advances materialism at the expense of a human being’s higher potential will eventually result in a stagnant society, ruled from above. This has been known and written about since before WWII. Books like Escape from Freedom by Erich Fromm, Animal Farm by Huxley, and 1984 by George Orwell have shown us the dark army plan. I wrote about this in my new novel, The Old Soul.  I also wrote about this in my blog post, “The Global Elites vs the Citizens.”

Wealthy elites, for obvious reasons, love centralized governments. The more totalitarian the better, for then access is restricted to a tiny few (them). (The fake debate between “left” and “right” obscures the real dichotomy: between tyranny/materialism and freedom/recognition of human divinity.) This is what is occurring in China, as a dozen or so powerful families consisting of a few thousand people, through the communist party and its military enforcement arm (the Peoples Liberation Army), control a nation of 1.4 billion. The same thing is being tried here in the US, as Big Tech censors the internet and mass media march to the “party line” of political correctness and hatred in the fake debate between liberals and conservatives.

Fortunately, here in the US, more and more people are waking up. This is occurring partially because of Donald Trump, the most polarizing figure in the history of the world. But why is this guy so polarizing? Because he is the actor playing the role of dismantling the old, dark world of gun running, drug running, and human trafficking. And because of his gigantic ego of course.

When the scope of human and child trafficking is finally exposed, and the organizations that are involved, most people simply won’t believe it. For that reason I don’t think it will be fully exposed to the public. A few people will get arrested, a few prominent politicians and corporate executives will be thrown in jail, and the world will gradually improve. We’re already seeing this.

The exposure is going to accelerate as we approach the 2020 election, which eerily resembles the 1860 election of Republican Abraham Lincoln, who was virulently opposed by slave owning Democrats in the south. We know what happened to Lincoln, as he was assassinated during the end of the Civil War at the Ford Theater by John Wilkes Booth in 1865. Prominent people like Tom Arnold, and others, have already spoken or tweeted about killing Trump.  

Some people say we are approaching a modern-day civil war, but that is fantasy. There will be no kinetic warfare, because this battle is being fought within the information realm. The light is exposing the darkness on both “sides” of the duality. And it’s going to continue until the duality is transcended.

I’m actually excited to see what the timeline will bring forth. I am an eternal optimist about the future of humanity. I see ups and downs, but eventual success. How fast that happens is utterly dependent on the activities of old souls. The duality will be transcended not because of people like Trump or Hillary, but because of old souls on the planet who send their light everywhere, through meditations and visualizations. That’s because the collective level of consciousness defines the parameters for action in the physical world. In a lower consciousness, violence and intimidation are accepted. In a higher consciousness, people don’t think of confrontation, but more peaceful ways of resolving conflict. It’s a gradual process.

The real action, as I’ve said many times, is on the mental/spiritual/esoteric plane, for thought and intent controls action. The esoteric grids of the planet absorb and record every thought, and the Law of Attraction works to manifest them. People like Trump and Tom Arnold and Hillary are just actors on the public stage. Their actions are constrained (or enabled) by the collective consciousness of humanity.

That’s what this war of dark and light is all about.
