Private Spies

Erik Prince (Blackwater) and Oliver North have submitted a set of proposals to provide the CIA Director and
the White House with a global, private spy network that would circumvent official U.S. intelligence agencies


The plans have been pitched to the White House as a means of countering “deep state” enemies in the
intelligence community seeking to undermine Donald Trump’s presidency.


Terror Incidents

Unless there's a further Terror Incident in the USA this year, the final tally is 29. 24 of those were by White Supremacists, White Power Groups and Trump Supporters. Bet you didn't read about most of them. (Courtesy: Far Right Watch)

The U.S. government would never even think about committing acts of terrorism on their own population...Right???

Wrong!!! In 1962 a plan entitled “Operation Northwoods” called for hijacking US planes and acts of terrorism and murder to be committed on innocent civilians which would be blamed on Cuba to justify an invasion of their country.

The Alt-Right / NeoNazi Threat

I’ve known about the existence if these people for a long time. I have always felt that they kept a low profile because they realized that their views were antithetical to mainstream ideas in America and they wished to avoid conflict. They could share their ideas with each other, and gloat over how ignorant the rest of us were.

In part because of limited exposure, I believed their numbers have been small, and their influence insignificant.

This may not be the case.

Recently, a friend whose judgement I respect sent me an essay that puts the lie to my beliefs. If it is in any respect true, we’re all in deep trouble.


Astrology? Best Date to Impeach Donald Trump? January 14, 2018 With 6 Positions in Capricorn!

Morning News, Dec. 7, 2017 Wow, not good! Previously this week, the U.S. Congress, House of Representatives, took a vote to Impeach President Donald Trump, which did not get enough votes to do so. Too bad they rushed the vote so soon! Maybe they will write up another Impeachment Bill and try again.

My best amatuer astrological guess is that the U.S. Congress, House of Representatives, will try again to Impeach President Donald Trump on or about January 14, 2018.     Astrology shows us that on this date at 3:35 PM Washington, D.C. time, there will be six (6) astrological positions in the sign of Capricorn, and this has not happened for many hundreds of years. This is incredibly rare. Because the Sun will be exactly and precisely 90 degrees of Uranus in Aries, (Uranus in Aries can cause sudden change) then this could mean a major earthquake or impeachment. Something rare, something major, with space dust coming down on us in a way that has not happened in hundreds of years....


Trump Is Not An Accident

There is no such thing as an accident. Nothing in this Universe occurs haphazardly. There is no chance, no providence, and nothing ever just happens. What is, is, and what happens, happens, because of the need to balance out the repercussions from the attitudes and emotions of fragment-entities, put into a creative mode through their thoughts, words, and deeds.    

Essene Saying

In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.

Three people in America today own more wealth than the bottom HALF of the American people.

What do they need so much wealth for?

They can’t live long enough to spend it all.

'Me too' movement renews Equal Rights Amendment push

USA TODAY - 2 days ago 

WASHINGTON — Equal Rights Amendment advocates think this could be their moment. As women increasingly come forward with stories of sexual assault and harassment, advocates are seeing the “me too” movement as an opportunity to renew their push for Constitutional protections...


Thank You For Your Service. Please Work For peace


I had my veterans for peace hat on and a
young man came by and said,
“Thank you for your service, sir.”
And he shook my hand.

“Thank you.” I said. “But
can you do me a favor?”

He seemed surprised, but
quickly said, “Yes, sir.”
