After reading this blog [the Ken post, “The Rockefeller Plan for the BRICS New World Order, in their own words”] and digesting the information contained, I’m actually glad to be 69 years old, because the future seem’s unbearable knowing that we actually are living in the Orwellian nightmare that G.O. wrote so well of O’brien was right all along, but you wont see me at The Chestnut Tree.

I’m sorry to hear that exmatelot2014. I posted this because without permission of those who’ve been beating the BRICS drum, it will be much more difficult to enact this plan. It wasn’t intended as a prophecy that Orwell has already won, but rather a heads up to shift course now in order to avoid that fate. Ken’s ideas at the end of his article are very good — the importance of local community, local food sovereignty, local currency. These are not impossible suggestions, and as more and more communities do this, there will be less and less recognized need for central authority. Yes, it’s a long shot, but the energies of the times are with us. Humans just need to accept responsibility for their choices, as they will garner consequences (good or bad) either way. If you’re going to pay a price for something, might as well use it to buy what you actually want.

I have been following this thread with great interest. I know that some may find this crazy but I work with the Archangels on the evolution of the New Earth. Of course, in the human realm, things may seem bleak but i assure you that they are not. Only a tiny fraction of people need to be aware. All are being given the choice of upliftment, which for those who believe themselves to be powerless, is truly terrifying. Our most important asset at this time is our vibration. Please do not judge the new age “everything is groovy in love and light “people for they serve a vital function even if they do not want to recognize the New World Order. The Earth needs their vibration to be as high in frequency as possible and yours too. This goes beyond fears and threats and conspiracies. Some will move onward and upward and other will be like the deer in the headlights. This is the time of choice. The action we take whatever the back story. Yes, evil is afoot. But do we stop and get caught up in it or set our own course? Yes, things have been so intense that even the Archangels are too busy to meet with me and my work partner needing to postpone our working session. The situation is dynamic and volatile and yet, having viewed the massive divine intelligence at work and the planning for this time that preceeds Atlantis, I ask that we all transcend our defunct 3D mentality and move into our multidimensional, cocreative sovereignity.

Forget the Rockefellers. In the cosmos your thoughts and actions are of equal power to them. This is the time of instant karmic consequences. The world they created awaits them. I have chosen to move on to the new eden that is being created as we speak with our highest best Spirit of One vibration.
Let the Cabal reap what they have sown without us.

Thank you, Sally. You have very sweet energy. It is possible to have high vibration and still recognize the ugliness and challenges. It actually requires much greater light and a strong connection to Source to be able to walk in the muck and remain intact. True Love and True Light, grounded in actions and a connection to Earth, do have this power. Fluffy light that refuses to look at or integrate Shadows often gets consumed when the Shadows grow too large and demanding. I know this, because my work involves coaching or doing intuitive readings for people all over the world whose lives are spinning out of control because their watered down “love’n’lite” doesn’t hold up to the intense challenges of our times.

I’m not suggesting these people should ditch their high vibrations. They’ve already ditched them, because despair, overwhelm and betrayal have crept in. I’m suggesting people deepen their connection to both Spirit AND Soul, so that they can stand strong when the winds and rains come, not just when it’s sunny and warm. The Dark Night of the Soul is just as important a part of people’s journey as the peak Mountain Top Experience. Peak experiences are difficult to access when all hell breaks loose, but when one knows how to find the calm within the storm, when one knows how to BECOME both the storm AND the calm, THEN one can handle whatever uncertainty comes his or her way. And can also become a beacon of strength to those who cower in fear.

You have a good heart! Continued blessing on your journey. 🙂

[There are many more comments worth reading on all posts, but especially the past three posts, which have created much discussion and insight. As always, I appreciate the sincere, caring and open readers of this and other blogs. You are more powerful than you think. Remember to get those feelings involved, so you can transmute their raw energy to fuel what you’d most love to experience and create. Blessed Be! … And be the blessing.]

David Swanson ~ Back in Iraq, Jack!

Back in Iraq, Jack!

By davidswanson – Posted on 07 August 2014

President Obama may want us to sympathize with patriotic torturers, he may turn on whistleblowers like a flesh-eating zombie, he may have lost all ability to think an authentic thought, but I will say this for him: He knows how to mark the 50th anniversary of the Gulf of Tonkin fraud like a champion.

It’s back in Iraq, Jack! Yackety yack! Obama says the United States has fired missiles and dropped food in Iraq — enough food to feed 8,000, enough missiles to kill an unknown number (presumably 7,500 or fewer keeps this a “humanitarian” effort).  The White House told reporters on a phone call following the President’s Thursday night speech that it is expediting weapons to Iraq, producing Hellfire missiles and ammunition around the clock, and shipping those off to a nation where Obama swears there is no military solution and only reconciliation can help.  Hellfire missiles are famous for helping people reconcile.

Obama went straight into laying out his excuses for this latest war, before speaking against war and in favor of everything he invests no energy in.  First, the illegitimate government of Iraq asked him to do it.  Second, ISIS is to blame for the hell that the United States created in Iraq.  Third, there are still lots of places in the world that Obama has not yet bombed.  Oh, and this is not really a war but just protection of U.S. personnel, combined with a rescue mission for victims of a possible massacre on a scale we all need to try to understand. 

Wow! We need to understand the scale of killing in Iraq?  This is the United States you’re talking to, the people who paid for the slaughter of 0.5 to 1.5 million Iraqis this decade.  Either we’re experts on the scale of mass killings or we’re hopelessly incapable of understanding such matters. 

Completing the deja vu all over again Thursday evening, the substitute host of the Rachel Maddow Show seemed eager for a new war on Iraq, all of his colleagues approved of anything Obama said, and I heard “Will troops be sent?” asked by several “journalists,” but never heard a single one ask “Will families be killed?”

Pro-war veteran Democratic congressman elected by war opponents Patrick Murphy cheered for Obama supposedly drawing a red line for war.  Murphy spoke of Congress without seeming aware that less than two weeks ago the House voted to deny the President any new war on Iraq.  There are some 199 members of the House who may be having a hard time remembering that right now. 

Pro-war veteran Paul Rieckhoff added that any new veterans created would be heroes, and — given what a “mess” Iraq is now — Rieckhoff advocated “looking forward.” The past has such an extreme antiwar bias. 

Rounding out the reunion of predictable pro-war platitudes and prevarications, Nancy Pelosi immediately quoted the bits of Obama’s speech that suggested he was against the war he was starting. Can Friedman Units and benchmarks be far behind?

Obama promises no combat troops will be sent back to Iraq.  No doubt.  Instead it’ll be planes, drones, helicopters, and “non-combat” troops.  “America is coming to help” finally just sounded as evil as Reagan meant it to, but it was in Obama’s voice.  The ironies exploded like Iraqi houses on Thursday.  While the United States locks Honduran refugee children in cages, it proposes to bomb Iraq for refugees.  While Gaza starves and Detroit lacks water, Obama bombs Iraq to stop people from starving.  While the U.S. ships weapons to Israel to commit genocide, and to Syria for allies of ISIS, it is rushing more weapons into Iraq to supposedly prevent genocide on a mountaintop — also to add to the weapons supplies already looted by ISIS.

Of course, it’s also for “U.S. interests,” but if that means U.S. people, why not pull them out?  If it means something else, why not admit as much in the light of day and let the argument die of shame?

Let me add a word to the U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs spokesman David Swanson, who is not me and whom I do not know: Please do keep pushing for actual humanitarian aid.  But if you spoke against the missiles that are coming with the food, the reporters left that bit out.  You have to fit it into the same sentence with the food and water if you want it quoted.  I hope there is an internal U.N. lobby for adoption by the U.N. of the U.N. Charter, and if there is I wish it all the luck in the world.

Jon Rappoport ~ The Solution to Everything: Slavery to the State

A glimpse into why politics is a matter of both spirit and — more importantly — soul. The New Age Borg or the State collective? “At this point, what difference does it make?”

Unplug. Be you.

Your rational mind knows that you’re a grown adult, capable of free will, and that the government is not your parent … but do you really know those things? Do your choices and attitudes reflect that knowledge? Beware the “solution to everything.” Soul removal’s included, but it sure ain’t free.

The Solution to Everything: Slavery to the State
By Jon Rappoport

Let me clarify that. Slavery to the corporate State. Government and mega-corporations work hand in hand.

The incurably naïve believe the State is beneficent. The government is kind. The government knows what to do. The government will solve society’s ills if we let it.

Of course, the government, in the form of NSA, is spying on everybody all the time—but you see, that’s not really the government. It’s a rogue element.

Sure it is. And rainbows will appear at any moment and the people of Earth will experience a galactic frequency that eradicates all impulses toward conflict.

To put it another way, people see what they want to see.

“Ahem, when I say ‘government,’ I don’t mean the CIA or the Pentagon or the FDA or the President’s national security team, or fraudulent federal scientists, or the whole lot of venal people in Congress, or corrupt prosecutors and judges or invasive bureaucrats or paper-pushing money-sucking desk jockeys.”

Of course not. Government is an idea in the mind of God.

And when you think about it, the NSA watches over us to make sure we stay on the path of righteousness. It’s absurd to be suspicious of the State. The authors of the Constitution, who tried to limit central authority, were a bunch of paranoids.

We need more government, not less.

Here are quotes from George Orwell. In case there is any doubt, he is describing aspects of the State:

“As I write, highly civilized human beings are flying overhead, trying to kill me. They do not feel any enmity against me as an individual, nor I against them. They are ‘only doing their duty’, as the saying goes. Most of them, I have no doubt, are kind-hearted law-abiding men who would never dream of committing murder in private life.” (The Lion and the Unicorn, 1941)

“Actions are held to be good or bad, not on their own merits, but according to who does them, and there is almost no kind of outrage — torture, the use of hostages, forced labour, mass deportations, imprisonment without trial, forgery, assassination, the bombing of civilians — which does not change its moral colour when it is committed by ‘our’ side.” (Notes on Nationalism, 1945)

“A totalitarian state is in effect a theocracy, and its ruling caste, in order to keep its position, has to be thought of as infallible. But since, in practice, no one is infallible, it is frequently necessary to rearrange past events in order to show that this or that mistake was not made, or that this or that imaginary triumph actually happened. Then, again, every major change in policy demands a corresponding change of doctrine and a revaluation of prominent historical figures.” (The Prevention of Literature, 1946)

“But actually, he thought as he re-adjusted the Ministry of Plenty’s figures, it was not even forgery. It was merely the substitution of one piece of nonsense for another. Most of the material that you were dealing with had no connexion with anything in the real world, not even the kind of connexion that is contained in a direct lie. Statistics were just as much a fantasy in their original version as in their rectified version.” (1984, chapter 4)

“Don’t you see that the whole aim of Newspeak is to narrow the range of thought? In the end we shall make thoughtcrime literally impossible, because there will be no words in which to express it. Every concept that can ever be needed, will be expressed by exactly one word, with its meaning rigidly defined and all its subsidiary meanings rubbed out and forgotten.” (1984, chapter 5)

But you see, these are all old Orwell remarks. Now we have a different kind of State. It’s…government. Yes. The State isn’t government. Aha. The State exists in places other than America. In America, we have government. Yes, that’s right. Two different animals. One is repressive, and the other is earnest. (More rainbows for the sentimentalists.)

Here are quotes about the State from Aldous Huxley’s 1932 novel, Brave New World:

“Till at last the child’s mind is these suggestions, and the sum of the suggestions is the child’s mind. And not the child’s mind only. The adult’s mind too—all his life long. The mind that judges and desires and decides—made up of these suggestions. But all these suggestions are our suggestions!” (Chapter 2)

“Every one belongs to every one else.” (Chapter 3)

“Mother, monogamy, romance. High spurts the fountain; fierce and foamy the wild jet. The urge has but a single outlet. My love, my baby. No wonder these poor pre-moderns were mad and wicked and miserable.” (Chapter 3)

“Everyone works for every one else.” (Chapter 5)

“Don’t you wish you were free, Lenina?”
“I don’t know what you mean. I am free. Free to have the most wonderful time. Everybody’s happy nowadays.”
He laughed, “Yes, ‘Everybody’s happy nowadays.’ We begin giving the children that at five. But wouldn’t you like to be free to be happy in some other way, Lenina? In your own way, for example; not in everybody else’s way.”
“I don’t know what you mean,” she repeated. (Chapter 6)

But again, Huxley’s remarks are about the aspirations and victories of the State, which doesn’t exist in America. Never has.

In America, we have a fluid and flexible government, which tries to respond to the people’s needs. Of course. Just ask Elizabeth Warren or Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, George W Bush, or the ghost of Richard Nixon. Ask the heads of Goldman Sachs, Monsanto, Dow, DuPont. Google, Facebook, Microsoft.

There are “repressive States” in Europe, Asia, and Africa, but that is a foreign phenomenon.

Rebelling against the State? Not here. Here we merge with the government and help it and encourage it. Besides, we’ve recently learned—and this is a revelation—that rebelling is very likely a terrorist act. Well, that settles that.

We’re all in this together. Even if the “we” and the “this” and the “together” seem to require some further clarification, rest assured it will be forthcoming. At the right time.

The government understands time (and also space). It arranges them. Someone has to.

The government is not the State, the government is not the State.
