An Empire of Lies, Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Dog Poet Transmitting.......

‘May your noses always be cold and wet’.

I realize I don’t care much about the news any more; same shit, different sewer. No matter where I get the news I have to listen to people who don’t know what they’re talking about. They get the details right but the timing wrong. They give the details and provide the timing and it doesn’t happen. I’m a philosopher and a mystic (anyone can be one, so I’m not the Lone Ranger and both he and Tonto are dead), what am I doing around news sites to begin with? There isn’t any news, there’s just yesterday’s bad behavior repeating itself.

I’ve been seduced by the news off and on; mainstream, alternative and batshit uncredentialed. Not only are they a bad lay but they predict all kinds of things and haven’t been right yet; they’re going to bomb Iran, another false flag is coming, the dollar is going to crash, the E.U. is going to break up and on and on and on. This caused me to make predictions too. They have been as wrong as the people who got me to believe you could make predictions. It’s all a carnival of enticements, looking for suckers who want to win a Kewpie doll.

I am hoping my saying this will somehow, through some kind of cosmic irony, cause something to happen and we can move out of the impacted, colon phase. Still, I note whenever I go around reading all of these news items, I feel like I had dinner in a bad restaurant. It makes me tired and sick to my stomach. I think I’m going to go on a news fast and if the end of the world shows up, someone can email me. Here’s a good indication that it may not be so far away.

Here’s what I have begun to notice, apart from everything I’m being told and which seems more likely to me than everything I’m being told. There will, of course, be massive riots and die offs in large urban centers. There will be major catastrophic change because of what ‘they’ did in The Gulf of Mexico. There will be a tremendous rise in the costs of fuel and food with all the attendant results but... a lot of places will go on like they always have. Rural agricultural zones around the world will go on doing what they do, in some cases; bartering with each other when they have to and generally maintaining a social construct, without a lot of the crap they never needed flowing in.

The changes will be dramatic in some cases and slow moving in others. Life will go on as death marches across the landscape. The world is going to be transformed, not destroyed. The biggest concern is what Mother Nature is getting up to, not socio-political and economic change. There will be mass migrations of people toward the borders of other countries and there may or may not be massive military engagements. This last is an unknown. It’s been threatening to show up for awhile but has confined itself to selected locations. The motive for this was for resource and geo-political control but, soon enough, other concerns are going to pre-empt earlier plans.

How and where the coming changes will surface is anyone’s guess. Regardless of the chaotic appearance of it all, there’s a force at work, arranging circumstance and events toward a specific goal. A new world is coming and wiser minds should focus on this, not upon the destruction of the old. As the old world goes, those attached to it will follow. As the new world emerges, those connected to it will follow. We are involved in a dynamic, not something haphazard and random. There is a method to what appears to be madness.

One has to understand the often secretive laws that govern what we collectively define as ‘good and evil’. All societies are based upon an aggregate agreement of what that is. This is why laws come about. Good laws are useful, until the point where lawyers get involved and then it’s hard to tell what good and evil are anymore. However, what has generally been understood as good and evil, through the ages, have cosmic laws that attend to their practice. These laws are as inflexible as the law of Karma and are part and parcel of it. As Hamlet said, “There is a divinity that shapes our ends, rough-hew them how we will”.

For the people of our times, it all comes down to what you put your faith in. It also comes down to how connected you are to it. What I mean by this is that there are people who say they believe in something. A time comes when that belief is tested and you find that most people do not actually believe in what they say they believe in. They immediately fall back upon trying to work it out according to personal knowledge and their wits. Beliefs are as easy to state as ordering from a restaurant menu. Lip service seems to be the order of the day. Everyone is going to find out just what this means.

It’s like those who profess to believe in God and set themselves up as representatives of one faith or another, practicing the forms and conventions but ignoring the essence. It’s as if going to church on Sunday is the fulfillment of what is required of you and the rest of the week is covered. My suggestion is to practice something for one hour a week and see how that matches up against someone who practices at every opportunity. The problem is that the more you practice certain things, the more difficult it can become and that is too much for most of us. We want some personal breathing room. The jury is out concerning what we accomplish during this breathing room. I suggest, not much.

There are two main kinds of suffering that attend life on this sphere. One is the general ‘catch all’ suffering that attends every existence by varying degrees. The other is the suffering that attends the effort to achieve something and wanting it more than anything you get put through on the way. This is why there are so many seemingly easy solutions to complex problems and why savvy entrepreneurs make so much money off of them. It’s like popping some processed food into a microwave or making something from scratch. You get the benefit of your industry and this applies across the board with everything.

It’s not hard to meet up with minor officials. It’s more difficult to meet with a senator than a congressman. It’s near impossible to meet the president. It’s pretty easy to talk to the members of a local band and much more difficult to talk to a member of a major rock group. It’s easy to talk to local theater actors and so on and so on. How easy then is it to meet up with the be all and end all? As the I Ching states, “perseverance furthers”.

It’s a little researched truism that we make our greatest progress under the pressures of adversity. There are many examples of people who have risen to great heights as a result of some terrible trauma or persistent misfortune, because the benefits are persistent as well. Everyone is going to get their share of understanding this, sooner than they may expect. It looks like I’m predicting here (grin). Actually, all I’m doing is parroting the guarantees of human destiny, as it has expressed itself over the course of time. You now live in ‘interesting times’.

Any of the rapidly disappearing, well informed students of human history, can tell you that there are long periods where life goes on in a fairly normal fashion in most places around the world. Then there are other times when normal has left the building. This is one of those times. Usually there is some incident that ignites the brushfire madness that has been smoldering for awhile. It goes from trails of smoke into an incendiary conflagration in no time. It’s been building for a long period and all the necessary features are in place. All the opportunistic and deadly assistants are in their spots. It’s as if it was choreographed and it is.

I had some thoughts about personal preparation but that hasn’t gotten me very excited. How am I to know what I will need when I need it? Sure, there are the basics but what about the things I need most? What about the things inside me? So, that’s where my focus has been. I can hardly build an ark if fire is coming, or head for the seashore if it turns out to be water, especially when I don’t know which one it is and especially when it’s going to be some combination of all of them, as we have already seen taking place.

We spend so much time planning and preparing to protect ourselves and our loved ones from pending disasters, without having taken the time to make ourselves into what we will need to be. Nothing may happen. It may just go on and on like it is, only getting worse but that defies all the laws of physics and metaphysics that I have ever seen besides entropy. Maybe a stagnant swamp is our destiny but I can’t seem to accept that and there are still tigers in The Sundarbans.

I was a Boy Scout. I was one merit badge shy of Eagle Scout. That was the Lifesaving Merit Badge (grin). I still believe in ‘be prepared”. However, the question remains; be prepared for what? What do you prepare? Everything on the outside is controlled by the inside.

I know what you mean about the news. I was all over it for a good, long while; reading every bit of alternative news and commentary I could lay my eyes on. Even taking the time to compare what they say as compared to what the MSM was saying. After a while on the rollercoaster, I've become much less interested in the things they say and much more interested in the things my heart is saying. Scanning the news, I see the familiar headlines, all proclaiming the same shit, different day. I still read read you though. My heart seems to insist upon it. I don't know why.
Peace

Dear Les,

The last paragraph in this blog took me way back......to an America of white picket fences and safety. I went all the way with Scouting and did recieve the Eagle scout medal. As close as you say that you were getting, then I assume you were an inductee into the Order of the Arrow and still know the meaning of WWW.

What did I really learn?

o the capacity of young men to
to brutilize each other.

o how to drink beer and smoke

o how to be sexy and suggestive
with young women.

God and Cuntry!

I stopped reading the alt news a year ago, just got tired of the constant doom-laden forecasts.

First thing is I didn't miss it at all - once you've got the basic shape and form of things onboard there's no need to repeat the lot a million times.

Second thing is I relaxed. Enjoyed what was in front of me, lived in the moment. I felt less angry since I wasn't shoving stuff that made me angry in front of my face every moment.

In my down time I realised that the alt news has become an instrument of fear. Not rational 'the river bank's breaking up' fear, but irrational 'the world's maybe heating up and will cause the river to flood!!' kind of fear.

That fear has a purpose early on in the process of decoupling you from the establishment information stream, but after that it can be counterproductive.

Fear gets you worse then nowhere - you turn into the gibbering paranoid specimen that most people imagine when they think 'conspiracy theorist'.

For all we worry, we're more likely to have heart failure, fall down the stairs or plow through a windscreen then end our lives in an abrupt event. And if that abrupt event is coming, there's probably precious little we little people can do to avoid it.

Les --

Speaking of impacted colons and the faux news, did ye know that the word Sphinx comes from from the Greek word sphincktus -- In the case of the Sphinx it is generally translated as Gatekeeper -- but the original word actually refered to the muscle that controls the colon's discharge of waste (shit for the plebs)...

I think you'd agree we've all been submerged in enough shit to last us several lifetimes and the last thing anyone needs is to read and believe any more of it.

Great piece Les.

In my world there would be new rules.

Evil usury is forbidden.

A man would not profit from another man's labour.

No taxes, period.

No inheritance, period.

No Government, period.

No borders, period.

No more profit from Mother Earth, period.

Just a few, but you get my drift.
I have been having trouble holding a job latley after an unblemished record.

Can't play their game any more.

Thanks Les for helping me see the some of the Light.

Not sure whether I get it yet, or not, but I am trying to be my best each and every day and wishing I hear many distant voices in the background someday.

insightful indeed Dr Watson!

Personally I seem to have had an uncanny instinct of predicting general future events for as far back as i can recall. i thought this was the norm - but apparently not.

i opted out of the race some 3 years ago as the feeling of momentous change was ever apparent. Hearing people talk about their plans for what they intended to do some 10 to 15 years in the future just made me think that they were not seeing things as they were. i felt like an insightful outsider.

Strange (perhaps not) that the people here in Siam seem to be very aware that things just aint right, yet most of my fellow country men in Blighty just haven't got the picture.

My wife can find a water leak by simply meditating and drawing shapes related to the area. Beats a team of plumbers all day long. Point being she knows what is on the horizon purely by her natural senses ( never uses the net) and it seems hard to contemplate. A dark age seems to describe things best.

Certain preparations have been made. But in light of the - what seems to be - unthinkable looming chaos these will be no more than a sticking plaster to a severed artery.

How do we prepare for the unknown. In a way many of us already have by having stepped off the
ride and taken time out. Having seen the writing on the wall. Surely that is a blessing in itself:)

Preparations can only be made within - it seems!

Peace and love

Les,
For the last 4-5yrs., I've found myself throwing my arms up,looking up saying,"hurry up lord,come and take this planet and give it a good spanking", when seeing the negative things we do to each other and the Earth.

It seems like I finally got "instant karma" a few years back and I watch what I do and say.

Seems to me an assumption that bad behavior is unnecessary is part of the problem.

If everything had gone perfectly as I had expected and planned in my life I wouldn't know a thing or care to know a thing.

That's the state of people like that. I'm Okay you're Okay types. But that's skipping life school in my opinion.

I sometimes seemed driven to fook up my life without realizing why. I realize why now... it's to learn and boy I've learned.

I'm most sorry for the hurt I've caused some beautiful and loving people in my life and often I wondered after if I was at the helm during those times or was there another captain.

Have you ever done that ? Just did something horrible without thinking and then later said oh my God what the hell did I do that for?

I'm not as sorry for hurting some real nasty jerks in my life though. I'm not good at loving enemies yet. Sorry JC.

Pain is part of it. Most you provide for yourself when reality just has to mold to your view.

Isn't a person in here who couldn't relate some god awful tragedy that occurred in their life at some point.

Sometimes you have to tear down to rebuild sometimes you decide it's renovation time and sometimes other forces do.

I'm in the tearing down phase now and some of it I chose and some of it not. It isn't pretty but it's entertaining for onlookers. Kinda like rubber necking a car wreck. Interesting as hell but something that couldn't happen to the viewer, no way , not me.

I guess what I'm saying is we're all a part of the bad and good during some time and some incarnation in our travels.

It's what our souls need to experiment with chapter by chapter, hard lesson by hard lesson.

You can live in a gated community and be held back from the next grade yep.

If I told you you'll never die, this is all a game.

Sometimes you're bad and sometimes you're good and no matter what you do you're forced to complete the course after as many tries as you need to get it right and then you'll live in pure love and joy forever would you be grateful for your existence and thank your creator everyday ?

Well I'm gonna believe that today.
No real reason I just like that idea today.

Second thoughts maybe being happy all the time would get boring I dunno.


Thanks for reading this.

Thanks for your Blog Les

Hi Les, 

Great post, spot on. Gave up on the "news" ages ago. I had the (sarcasm warning) "privilege" of being part of this great "liberating" western machine that brought "freedom" to the local natives against the "evil" serbs.
And boy, that really woke me up. Nothing is as it looks and I can tell you, I have seen pure darkness. But where there is darkness, there must be also light!
Until this day I haven't seen any website that recounts correctly what really happened over in the balkans and why.

On a side note, when I went there a refuge was called a refuge, some years later when I left, we had to call a refuge a "misplaced" person. How in he'll can you "missplace" A person. It's not like you misplaced a pack of matches.

Sorry for ranting, just wanted to share that. Keep up the good work, again, sorry for my bad English...

Thanks, ivo

When people in positions of power use that power to the detriment of humanity, sooner or later a correction will occur. Just as you state here, there are Natural Laws of Nature which will prevail through all this man-made horror show we've got going on. We are not alone. There is the Universal Source of all power and wisdom which will guide us through anything. These men who think they have it all figured out, who think the earth is theirs to own and rule don't know what they don't know. A correction will come...may the divine protect us and keep us safe.

There are some things happening if you live in the south. BK Lim the oil executive who has been writing congress about the gulf saying it is still spewing oil, heavily fractured has taken in on the run due to black suits after him according to this article.

There are still large quantities of oil washing up and dead fish reported. Large pelican deaths off Jacksonville, Fl and the Carolinas lately as well as hundreds of seals floating around near Labrador Canada. This stuff will be headed for the North Sea at some point if not already.

There is a lot of corexit in the air as well as benzene. I have just had pneumonia in the right lung which became pleurisy. It still hurts. So yeah it is pretty exciting around here.

But in the grocery store the other day I noticed there is a big wedding going down between Will and Katy, fairy tale kind of thing I believe, so that is pretty exciting too.

My sister-in-law is still living in Jacksonville. The pelicans are dying right before her very eyes and she still doesn't see it. She's no longer feeling very perky and she still doesn't see it. What she sees instead is my paranoia. I simply have no words to describe how this makes me feel.

maurice said...

glad i clicked on this site today - your post and these comments have soothed me - i've been greatly distressed over the gulf, dead birds, dead animals, dead humans - murders of Matt Simmons and John Wheeler - frankly overwhelmed by the evil of man - so knowing some want the truth and recognize honesty is very calming to me - we do live...and die in interesting times - one way that we are allowed a prison break - lately i tried the church route again and found they speak of nothing that is going on - it is really amazing - just waiting around for the rapture - no wonder the devils came up with that one - there is nothing there for me - should have known - God is available without any church - I don't think He is listening to me - not lately - but I will keep on knocking - we are a strange species but important to know that we are a very mixed group and there are some fine humans (and the devils of course)
Les, I really appreciate your writings - they help a great deal.

I watched a little of Jon Stewart's "The Daily Show" today. Funniest ever. He was making a joke about the people in Auschwitz not being upset because they were lied to. He said "they told us there would be a pool". I laughed so hard I cried. Jon, in fact there is a pool at Auschwitz, you can take the tour today and take a picture. It's actually in good shape. I wonder if he knows this? I wonder if he'll catch any shit from it? I wonder if anyone will notice besides us?

Maybe I should have been clearer about that Mark.

It's not my sister-in-law.

It's both my wife and my elder daughter.

With my luck when I arrived in Italy Mt. Vesuvius would go and probably Etna about the same time. If I moved Northwest it would probably be Yellowstone.
Incidentally Yellowstone has risen 10 inches lately and they say it is bigger than they thought.

Russell Means always has a way with words and he did an interview the other day with Jones I don't really like to link him but it is on Youtube. Anyway it is called "Welcome to the Reservation" and the gist is now the majority of Americans have joined native Americans. He says the elite are out of control and destroying themselves and the rest of the planet.

"How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you?

The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own?

How does he have any power over you except through you?

How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you?

What could he do to you if you yourselves did not connive with the thief who plunders you, if you were not accomplices of the murderer who kills you, if you were not traitors to yourselves?

You sow your crops in order that he may ravage them, you install and furnish your homes to give him goods to pillage; you rear your daughters that he may gratify his lust; you bring up your children in order that he may confer upon them the greatest privilege he knows---to be led into his battles, to be delivered to butchery, to be made the servants of his greed and the instruments of his vengeance; you yield your bodies unto hard labor in order that he may indulge in his delights and wallow in his filthy pleasures; you weaken yourselves in order to make him the stronger and the mightier to hold you in check.

From all these indignities, such as the very beasts of the field would not endure, you can deliver yourselves if you try, not by taking action, but merely by willing to be free.

Resolve to serve no more, and you are at once freed.

Whenever I read your blogs, I wonder if you are really only now discovering the concepts you describe, or if you make it sound that way so as to appear fresh. Today's post about news: it has always been the way it is. Nothing ever changes. Kennedy 'discovered' TV and how you could use it to entrance, but then the same happened with radio, and, if you go back farther, print and even hieroglyphs. News is not, nor has it ever been, what it seems. Do you really believe that social control and manipulation is new or revelatory? It's always a case of been there, done that, and there were no t-shirts.

erhine said...

"don't care about the news" you can be like the ostrich with it's head in the sand. We either seek the truth or take come what may. Like the hundred monkey theory tides come and go and change is constant. Boiling points arise, yet grips of control is less manufactured by old media as it is fractured with mass-manic-depressive mindsets in a sea of paranoia that profits from the economies of old that leech the new ideas that make order out of chaos. "Seek and ye shall find... the truth shall set you free"
EKR PS I had a really strange experience with Egyptian ceremonial incense. Ankh was the first cross. I'll try to make this short. I wouldn't try this though with the peak of three roofs I stared into the sun and was transported after seeing the Lord with arms outstretched. In the span of ten minutes I was inside and never witnessed such warm and wonderful colors or sense of peace. Neil Young sang of ship into sun or "new home in the sun". Before this a large scarab I found and placed on my guitar in the front seat of my car. I drove for 15 miles and it stayed on the butterfly on the neck of my guitar. It left when i arrived at my Aunt's home which I delivered roses. Later Ladyfriend was at my place and it landed on her head and disappeared. Makes you wonder though this is true. I have seen many things had stigmatas of faces and numbers such as verses. Saw a preacher once who had everyone keep their eyes closed as he spoke in tongues which I looked and saw his head that of an elephant. Last year I asked him and he claimed to have been called alot of things but never that though it was surreal to say the least, scary. Through a female preistess a Bhudda spoke to me telepathically when I asked her questions. I've seen Native American Spirits et al hundreds and been told to not tell non-native as they would not understand. He told me it was the seeking. 6 years ago was the rocks with names and faces crying out. To quote lyrics that mirror truth "we have all been here before" and "it makes you wonder" In Genesis Elohim is plural for gods. Truth is stranger than fiction though. Peace to all, think what you may and may your journey be joyful and bring you closer to your seeking and the truths of Wisdom.

Thomas Clayton Wolfe (1900-1938)
--from You Can’t Go Home Again

Mankind was fashioned for eternity, but Man-Alive was fashioned for a day. New evils will come after him, but it is with the present evils that he is now concerned. And the essence of all faith, it seems to me, for such a man as I, the essence of religion for people of my belief, is that man's life can be, and will be, better; that man's greatest enemies, in the forms in which they now exist--the forms we see on every hand of fear, hatred, slavery, cruelty, poverty, and need--can be conquered and destroyed. But to conquer and destroy them will mean nothing less than the complete revision of the structure of society as we know it. They cannot be conquered by the sorrowful acquiescence of resigned fatality. They cannot be destroyed by the philosophy of acceptance--by the tragic hypothesis that things as they are, evil as they are, are as good and as bad as, under any form--they will ever be. The evils that we hate, you no less than I, cannot be overthrown with shrugs and sighs and shakings of the head, however wise. It seems to me that they but mock at us and only become more bold when we retreat before them and take refuge in the affirmation of man's tragic average. To believe that new monsters will arise as vicious as the old, to believe that the great Pandora's box of human frailty, once opened, will never show a diminution of its ugly swarm, is to help, by just that much, to make it so for ever.


You and the Preacher may be right for all eternity, but we Men-Alive, dear Fox, are right for Now. And it is for Now, and for us the living, that we must speak, and speak the truth, as much of it as we can see and know. With the courage of the truth within us, we shall meet the enemy as they come to us, and they shall be ours. And if, once having conquered them, new enemies approach, we shall meet them from that point, from there proceed. In the affirmation of that fact, the continuance of that unceasing war, is man's religion and his living faith.


from You Can't Go Home Again:

But before I go, I have one more thing to tell you: Something has spoken to me in the night, burning the tapers of the waning year; something has spoken in the night, and told me I shall die, I know not where. Saying: 'To lose the earth you know, for greater knowing; to lose the life you have, for greater life; to leave the friends you loved, for greater loving; to find a land more kind than home, more large than earth--Whereon the pillars of this earth are founded, toward which the conscience of the world is tending--a wind is rising, and the rivers flow.

ever wonder why after readoing all the pukish pablum that the lamstream medai pukes at us it leaves you feeling ill?
thats exactly what they want to achieve. to lower our spiritual energy or chakra energy levels. if we lose that energy, where does it go? to the darkside or to lucifer/the devil/ etc. pick your own demon...the point is there is good and evil and the brainphukking they try to place upon us is to do one thing: rob us of our spritual energy which lowers our potential as well as health and immune response. i stopped watching tv and listening to rush-bimbo years ago and feel so much the better for it.

Hi Les,

I have been reading your stuff for a month or two now and I really enjoy it and look forward to it. Funny, I am right with you about the news stuff, had the same feeling this week. I have been wasting to much time waiting for something to happen...I need to start just skiming then get back to work writing.

It either will happen or it won't, we're right or they are. I am afraid it is white or black, there is no grey here... Check out my blog if you get a chance, I repost alot of stuff, but what doesn't have a byline is mine..

I also had some fun with the gius boys...they are quiet the characters..

All the best,

Robert

It is remarkable how quickly the seemingly unchanging environment that we are comfortable with can change out of all recognition. Any European in 1346 could not in his wildest fantasy have imagined how his world was about to change. No German in 1939 in his worst nightmare could have envisioned the way his country would be six years later. Most of us cannot imagine the electricity and water going off and staying off, or the supermarkets or fuel stations being permanently empty. There is a strong sense that we are headed for a massive shake up that many, if not most, will not survive. The veneer of civilisation is very thin and it won't take a lot to tear it away.

To the anonymous person screaming at me that I sold out and using the example that Iran got bombed by computer but not really giving and reasons or evidence, in order to sell out, someone must pay you and thereby you are compromised by some sort of agreed upon exchange.

Your last paragraph hit home for me. be prepared for what? What do you prepare?

And I would also ask, "What if what happens CAN'T be prepared for?"

Never mind Yellowstone, Ever hear of the New Madrid Fault? Massive earthquakes in 1811-1812 were noticed by bells ringing in Boston, the fault is active and a great portion of the oil and gas for the East Coast flow through the area. A massive earthquake there would not only mess up a large portion of the United States but cause crisis all over the East Coast.

(And would probably happen alongside an eruption in Yellowstone. I assume you know what that might mean...)

The times are a changing...

I am seeing more and more struggle. YOu would be surprised, or not, by how many 40+ woman out there who are looking for someone to rescue them. I a seeing cell phone being turned off, people being evicted and jumping leases. Every body is selling used stuff online and other ways. Lots of people with great resumes looking and looking and looking...

Yet, so many are holding on to that old paradigm that thinks will just turn around and good times will be here again. Ignorance is the act of ignoring.

A single man with money could have a harem from the pool of struggling women out there.

anybody waiting for the old times to come back, well, it will be sad. If you stay inthe moment and accept what is coming and be in integrity with life then it is just a journey. Dust to dust, enjoy the movie while you can.

A good read Les.
There are some good bits in this fairy tale: Matthew 24:42-44 (NIV) "Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come. ... So you also must be ready, because the Son of Man will come at an hour when you do not expect him."
Your life is lived so that any event is able to be handled in the context of how you live your life.

Astute post Visible.

You and Godozo both notice the same thing I have and its not pretty. I've seen a lot of talented, spiritually wholesome, very well respected authors lately say much about preparation/what to expect and I leave comments similar to yours, Godozo, because while its nice to be prepared, when I ask for details I don't get anything even close to what we want to know. No one knows. No flesh and blood human being can possibly make that call. Just because the secret is out of the closet doesn't mean the abuse stops, now does it. The only situation we can be sure of is nothing will stop until corruption vanishes forever from the face of this Earth. There appears to be plenty of paranoia in divulging that fact.

Thank you.

Thank you, Les, for doing the radio show this week. You were amazing, just full of energy and flowing, it seemed like your physical ailments only made you shine even brighter.

I look forward to whatever pain and pummeling life has in store for me in this immediate future, because as they say, pain is merely weakness leaving the body (or the soul). God knows I'm a stubborn piece of work, reaching for the higher awareness one minute, throwing it away and falling into old bad habits the next. "Remove my shortcomings, Lord; let me feel your presence; I love you!" This is my prayer, sometimes in words, sometimes as pure feeling. I feel that love as music, or dance, or the exquisite forms and colours of nature, or a head rush, or a roaring fire in my chest. And then I forget. Still attracted to the dust... but less so over time, as my focus turns ever more toward the original, the real, the indispensable One of which I and everything else is a part... Let me discover myself, my destiny, my role in this epic tale of the turning of the ages.

Blessings to you all, you beautiful souls who come here. These blogs are an oasis. I am truly thankful that they exist for our refreshment and enlightenment in this dark, chaotic time.

I love the comments as much as the blogposts. We are the Hope we be lookin' for. The Les have given us a place to meet and for that, mucha grazia. Had it out a bit with an acquaintance i met at a Ron Paul outing in 08, and was apalled at the ability to stay head fused in ass. Was expressing my disgust with US prison industry and of the common purpose programmed mental disability that jails people for years for using dope. Was vehemently rebutted. When i suggested most drug abusers are victims by design of social iniquity I was rebuked again. The notion of having a society to be proud of where ghettos and poverty are historical lessons to be remembered not repeated, was rejected. It's ok Said i for babies to be born and raised in squalor because the parents having no choice but poverty went weak and despondent and turned to dope? Baby neglect ok because parents were druggies? Allan the cosmic messiah said it clearly. Utopia is about ABSOLUTE freedom security and abundance for all people, everyone... Food, clothing, transportation, care, recreation and shelter provided by and for our self on one high standard. No class, caste or privilege and no money. You may say I'm a dreamer...pragmatism be damned. Anything less than perfect aint worth doing. Aloha, the Chipster

Not to be insensitive Laurel, but being one of the (apparently) handful of people who knows what a controlled demolition looks like, you're not exactly the best sample of the general population.

beg your pardon pstonie? you mean i need some more beating down and you would like to help? i mean, what kind of little comment is that? way to be optimistic and human and all that. i will be sure to tell my kids they are the product of a bad example :) ..... to each his own, and your own thank gods is not my own. and of course, vice versa. whew. silly me for thinking i was bringing my children up to greater good. hm. mothers like me are controlled demolitions. now that is sure a nice way to blast my worthless 50 years right off the landscape. thanks. i was feeling just too dam good this week. glad to be back in my mucky hole. wow. bet you are all kinds of fun at the beach too. no problem. it was nice, but i am out of here, no more big dumb result-of-demolitions-laurel mouth. thanks les, it was good reading, but i am not here for more bashing. too goddam tired of being bashed by crazy control freaks just in a normal course of events on any day. dont wish to have it here too. cripes.

Visible said...

Laurel, Hey! wait a minute. That's not necessary. You're a valuable part of what we do here. I am sure that there is a misunderstanding and I am sure Pstonie will clear that up when he sees this. At least give it a chance will you. This is not what's supposed to happen and why should I lose out for something I had no part in. Give it a few moments and see what happens.

yeah, just laurel again said...

a bit then, maybe les. i have been a die hard follower of you since way back when and so are my two older girls. but i doubt i want to comment any more. its not a good life out here, but i doubt i am a part of the problem. i do as i can and better, regardless, with not a shred of victim mentality and i raised some tough futuristic far-thinking kids that way, cant imagine how that could be a bad thing. if only 10 percent of mothers out there quit whining about how things are bad and instead bitch about it and bitch loud and FIX IT, we could change an entire segment of the next generation nearly overnight.

Visible said...

I agree 100%. The problem is that we can only do what we do but we can't do what others don't do or undo what they do do (grin)... unintentional irony. I have a suspicion. just a suspicion but Pstonie is from another part of the world and I have a feeling he didn't intend what he said to mean or go over the way it did. He's been around a long time and generally is fit company in this fittest of company. In these days misunderstanding is commonplace and when it isn't is can be no less unfortunate (smile).

There's a lot of disrespect going around in (I'm not talking about this event) places you never see it.

I suffer from occasional bouts of depression and none of the legal stuff works but some that is not legal is fantastic. I was using Ketamine for awhile and there's nothing I've ever found that is nearly as effective and I was touting it's efficacy. Imagine my surprise when I recently heard that Sweden is legalizing it for the treatment of depression.

I can't get ketamine anymore because I can't find anyone to send it to me, even though it is as ubiquitous as ale in the UK.

Recently some chemists came up with a synthetic ketamine which is presently legal until they pass another law. I ordered some from this web site because I felt an event pending and after a week I get an email telling me that I have to scan and submit six kinds of identification to get my order. meanwhile the depression comes on as I suspected and I had a week of very unpleasant results which could have been avoided.

I reminded this guy that I had ordered from him before and never ran into this crap. Then he got but it took him several days to write me. Meanwhile I have about eight days left in Italy so I say, if you can expedite my shipment it will get here but not if you don't. I will gladly pay all shipping costs. He said he's take care of it.

So I drive into town on 3 separate occasions, which I don't like doing anyway and no mail. I even drive in the day I am leaving and nothing. I'm really upset with this guy now because he really doesn't give a shit and I'm making this as short as I can so, no more examples of his total money focus.

Now my package will sit there for 2 to 3 months. I've had it and I tell him the worst part is my having to feel like this and the fact that I'm going to teach him a lesson if he doesn't send me my order where I am now and I will return what he sent when I got back to Italy. If he doesn't do this I'm going to contact a whole of people in the UK to hit all the forums that deal with what he does and simply tell the truth about the way he treated me.

He says. "we don't respond well to threats here." I said, it's not threat and only the truth is involved. Since all you care about it money I feel that that is where you should experience your lesson and it doesn't have to happen. You simply send me what you owe me and i will forget it ever happened. if you don't then you are doing it to yourself. If some part of you is so messed up that you can't see what's going on here and how much more it's going to cost you then there's not much more I can say.

unintentional, I would immediately do whatever is needed to fix the situation. And people in his business shouldn't be acting like they are AT&T.

He's telling me they have rules and regulations that compelled him to jerk me around for several weeks. I guess those same rules and regulations require him to wait a week before notifying me and then to be rude about it all as well. I'm sure it's in the manual.

I told him, these are your rules and regulations and if you don't have any control over that then you've got problems (grin).

I told him my time was too valuable to have to drive useless kilometers for unfulfilled promises and write lengthy letters detailing how common sense and courtesy works.

I said, considering what you have put me through, I have no choice but to warn the public about you and it increases my displeasure to have to do this, to have to feel as I do, to not just let it go, which is how I usually handle these things but he's either going to come through or I am. We'll see. he hasn't replied yet.

This is the first time I've run into this kind of a person in his business but this and other examples of rude indifference are surfacing more and more.

It's the simplest thing in the world to just do the right thing and completely solve the situation. But people seem to find that impossible and so it winds up costing them far more than it ever would have if they'd just dealt with it at the time.

I've hurt people's feelings without meaning to and even if I don't feel I'm wrong I do what I think is necessary because it's the final result that counts, not my having triumphed with my personal will. It's so easy to be sorry. it's so easy to put pride aside and do the right thing. I've seen pride get people killed and all kinds of bad news and there is no rational excuse for it. Madness. and we are really going to be seeing some of that soon.

Like I said in the post, the people setting themselves on fire is a precursor of a dramatic sea change. This is a serious thing that isn't getting the attention is deserves, at least that is my visceral take.

Love your life, maybe if you had a clue to what's going on you wouldn't be confronted with so many mysteries. Not a single post of yours appears here where you do not lecture me in bad English. If I go in one direction, it's the wrong. If I go in the opposite direction it is also the wrong way.

How would you know I am trying too hard. Can you see the cords in my neck straining? When I sit down to write something I rarely know what it's going to be, it just flows out. How that amounts to straining I couldn't guess.

You do this kiss slap thing with your posts and the routine never varies. You're like one of those English clergy that exists for no other reason than to cure insomnia. I'm trying to get something useful from you but it changes into the opposite of whatever I am saying so I can't keep up with it because it's like a rubber hammer under the kneecaps.

The reason I am writing this is to create a major contradiction between what I said in the last comment and what I am saying here. It's for entertainment purposes only and I can say that I am entertained, now... if you could only be entertaining I wouldn't have to strain so hard.

He fully supports Assange and has said so at his website. I don't want to get into an adversarial thing with him. I don't know him and he's got his own theater of operations but... for him to support Assange with everything that is coming out about him well... I leave that to the discretion of the reader to make up his own mind.

Here's an odd things though. A few days before I saw him say what he did, two people contacted me to ask if I was aware of him and what a nice guy he was and what important work he does. That's strange but these days strange is normal. Susanne and I are sitting here tonight watching a movie. I pulled down the volume sliders on my mixer because the sound was too loud. We took a break for a moment, not even leaving the room and then turned the movie back on. The sliders had moved on their own back up. It's not a digital mixer. This kind of thing doesn't happen on it's own.

A little while later the door to the room moved open and then moved back. it was only about six inches of movement but no one touched the door.

I was told that supernatural events are going to become routine, along with the clairaudient thing.

Pstonie;

Thank you for that, I had a feeling it was something to do with things out of context. What you were saying was the opposite in fact.

That's the thing with Neptune beaming down at the moment in relation to Pluto (I think I got it right- grin). Things get mistaken for something else. I was warned about this, that that feature was active.

Laurel,

No specific person was the topic of my remark. I live in the country and recently tried internet to meet woman since it is a chore to go to town. On top of that I have had several people who I ahve been in contact with for various reasonss and there cell phones are turned off. I knew they were strugling but it is getting worse by the day. I have a freind who rents out several homes and he has been dealing with lots of tenents who just don't have any money. I see strugle all around me and I am in Colorado which is a state with alot of money.

The middle class has been raped and the effects are showing. I have talked with several woman who are in the process of being evicted and would love help. I can't do that. I think it is line from a Nine Inch Nails song, but ' I can't even help myself'.

I am dealing with a lot of serious physical issues with no isurance. So the struggle is on both sides. I just noticed how many woman were stuggling. I recently rented out a room to try lighten the load and now she doesn't have any money.

This is not an accident. These economic times are by design. The PTB would never be able to get away withthis if the middle class were strong and aware. This was a long time coming. The dumbing down of America is a multi decades long process.

Note: ow many remember or had Latin in school. Very powerful cognative tool. Gone. I was a teacher for 10 years. It got worse every year. If you really tired to educate and instill critical thinking and awareness you found yourself battling with the administration.

Hey, don't think this was directed only at woman. I have many male freinds who are now struggling who used to have nice incomes. It was just an observation from conversations via the internat dating site. I only talked with woman :) on this site so it would have a bias...

I would add, the people on this site are, in ways, a cut above the rest. You can choose to be aware or you can choose not too. I thank all of you for making this choice. It is not an easy one.

les, on the "lengthy letters detailing and explaining".....hehehe.....watch out for the recipients. i wrote a lengthy 4 pager to the city municipal offices. ALL OF THEM. i called attention in painful detail backed by every substantiating fact i had painstakingly acquired, and they were BIG. see, there is such massive fraud and illegal baloney in this little moblet of a town, that if anyone were to perform anything in an other-than-fraudly-manner, i think all atomic motion would just cease. so, i did that. partly because it was the right thing to do, and partly just to show them they werent so smug as all that. by 5 pm the next day, 2 large officers of our local finest showed up at my back door. there were two more out front. my daughters just stood there. i opened the door, and one nice enough chap asked me "how was i FEELING tonight?" and i said, well, just fine sir, and if you are asking me out, the answer is yes. but what are you here for". he then danced around the ideas of whether i was feeling unusually stressed, had i received any mental helath treatment lately, was i feeling in need of a little break from it all, did i do drugs, or drink, and finally i just snapped back at him to get to the point. i had not answered any questions, just let the man go on. he aske dif i had had any problems oh, with the City lately? i said i had not. he asked me if i had maybe written any communications to The City lately? i said, you mena like when i paid my electric bill? or took my daughter to her mayor's youth council meeting...to what are you referring? he aske dme so politely if i had written any letters to The City that maybe indicated a depressed state of mind? i said, not such that would cause ME to feel depressed. is that why you are here? he said The City had requested a mental health/wellness/emergency check of me. i said, well, given what i wrote to The City, i dont think they are the appropriate experts for such spontaneous diagnoses. and i - no offense - dont think the police department is either. sir, did YOU read The Letter? he said, no - i confess i did not, ma'am. i said, go read it. if you think i am in need of "services", i will be right here later tonight, tucking my autistic little one into her bed while my older ones work on their homework. and what happened? he walked off and muttered to his partner that they'd been sent out to bother a woman who was probably just pissing off The City. and, no more police or emergency mental health checks. that might help me to be a bit too touchy. every time i open my mouth to complain, i am considered an irrational suicidal dissident. they should be so lucky. on the plus side, if i can manage to get us out of here pront, both daughters are being admitted to rutgers campus in new brunswick nj,in the fall, one for nano engineering, and one for international relations. we as a small family unit are all moving up there together. cheaper that way, and little sunny rose wont have to wonder where her beloved older sisters went to :)

Pstonie said...

Don't apologise, Laurel, I am not without blame in this. My respect for people with family responsibilities grows every time I read an account from one of them here about trying to leave the system with a family in tow. I have avoided the bad and the good of life quite masterfully and even so I can't yet make the leap Les has, even with only the family responsibilities I was born with.

Whatever happened though, some things got worked out and none of it really matters anyway except to us. From my experiences on LSD I am wholly convinced that the last thing we do before we die is laugh our asses off regardless of what happened. It appears the too rigid parts of ourselves are being forced off and good riddance to them I say.

Israeli 'Security' Firm ICTS Helped Provide 'Security' at Russia's Domodedovo Airport

The details about this 2009 article are here, but it's PDF and I don't know how to copy and paste that type of file.

The story goes into a little detail about how Security Partners Ltd., the ICTS Europe subsidiary in Russia was going to assist with 'security' at Domodedovo airport.

The SAME ICTS that on 9/11 helped those MOSSAD agents, made up to look like Arabs, onto several flights.

The SAME ICTS that let the 'Shoe Bomber,' Richard Reid board.

The SAME ICTS that sent a 'sharp-dressed man' to help out the Christmas day 'underwear bomber' board a flight, with no money and NO PASSPORT.

Surely this can't be related to Russia getting ready to recognize a Palestinian state, could it?

Would Israel be so low, sneaky and murderous as to use a FALSE FLAG to accomplish their goals?

Fatah official Nabil Sha'ath tells Al-Hayat newspaper that Dmitry Medvedev will affirm Soviet Union's 1988 recognition of a Palestinian state during West Bank visit. By Barak Ravid

Israeli officials fear that Russian President Dmitry Medvedev will announce on Tuesday during a visit to Jericho that Russia recognizes a Palestinian state based on the 1967 borders.

Officials became concerned following an interview given by Fatah official Nabil Sha'ath to the Al-Hayat newspaper on Tuesday. Sha'ath said that Medvedev would affirm the Soviet Union's 1988 recognition of a Palestinian state - a recognition that was based on the declaration of independence made by Yassir Arafat that year.

Such a move would be significant, particularly since Russia is a member of the Quartet of Middle East peace negotiatiors.

@greg bacon: my 18 yr old, the girl who is entering rutgers for international relations and focusing on russian and mideast studies, was explaining this to me a while back, and here it is all happening. i had forgotten she had told me about this until i read your comment :)/ from the mouths of our youth......
@pstonie: oh my, i sure hope you have a better view of women than what i have given you! and i used to be such a nice person, too. then, one day....i woke up.....but i promise you, though there are many of us out there in hell, do not for a minute think we are unable to pull through to get the job done in the end :) .... i am saddened though that you yourself are in such circumstances that you and your acquaintances are all suffering and without benefit of family. i have not much, but my children are the best for companionship -- even the almost-6 yrs old - autistic one! i never want them to feel so alone and at the mercy of this world as you and your friends have felt. its a short time we have in this training segment in this blip in our collective development, but this is a very intense and difficult class, i am sure. its exhausting. stay with us, pstonie, even if i am a mouthy little thing :) /....i never ever laid on my back for anything, not even a good beating, and i have been through that too. some women fight and fight and some men find they have the freedom to do their own growing and learning, because they are not coerced into taking care of lazy women :)

So you are a good reptilian (saw your picture up there) ? But why do you make a satanic hand sign?
