What The World Continues To Ignore About The Recent Mass Shooting In Florida (And All Others)

Author, Anna Rodgers, interviews Dr. Faye Snyder, Child Forensic Evaluator, author and the founder of the PaRC parenting school, who has spent the last several decades studying and evaluating why people like, Nikolas Cruz, carry out such violent acts and what do we need to do to ensure that these acts don’t keep happening.

We can expect more massacres. We can expect more prisoners. We can expect more premature deaths from overdosing. We can expect more selfish people without empathy. We can expect mental hospitals will become the order of the day, and some people will never leave, if they are being treated according to the medical model.

We will see more domestic violence, and we will see the courts abused and more false complaints will be filed as well as real ones. More parents will lose their children because children’s protective services and the courts don’t know how to tell the difference between a false complaint and a real one.

– Dr. Faye Snyder, Child Forensic Evaluator

With another tragic recent mass shooting, this time at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, Florida, we are seeing a flood of articles about what happened, and the controversial debate on gun laws.

However, these articles often are missing an angle that is incredibly important for us to start looking much deeper at, and that is, what might have happened to Nikolas Cruz in his life, for him to carry out these terrible atrocities.

His lawyer has publicly stated that he is a ‘sad and broken child’, and we know that he was adopted at birth, and we also know that at age 5, his adopted father died. Late last year, Nikolas also lost his adopted mother, Linda, who passed away from pneumonia.

It is also reported that Nikolas’s younger brother Zachary, was committed involuntarily for mental observation, after his brother carried out the shootings. 

Clearly these boys have suffered greatly due to their past, from the broken attachment from their birth mother and from the subsequent loss of both of their adoptive parents.

What we do not know in detail is, what else has happened during Nikolas’s life that will help us to understand why he wanted to kill so many people. 

We know that many people also suffer similar pasts, and do not carry out acts like this. But in Nikolas’s case when did the cracks begin to show? Just in the last few years, or were they always there?

Neighbours are now coming forward and sharing bits of information, like that Nikolas was a ‘deeply troubled’ child who often displayed violence, sometimes even to animals.  How did his adoptive parents deal with this? How did they help him deal with problems and his emotions? 

We must also ask, why on earth did he have access to guns if people around him knew he had a fragile mind?  On his instagram he had selfies with knives and guns and left comments on youtube that he was going to be a ‘professional school shooter’. Why wasn’t this a clear warning sign for those around him to do something about this?

More is also coming to light about all of the complaints (some were even to the FBI) and police visits regarding Nikolas’s behaviour.  In a video by Stefan Molyneux called The Truth About The Florida School Shooting And Nikolas Cruz, Stefan shares some very alarming information that shows there were so many warning signs that were just blatantly ignored.

After Nikolas’s adopted father passed away, Linda his adoptive mother, asked a neighbours daughter if she would care for the children. Whether she meant for a short while or permanently we do not know, however was that a sign that things were not well in the Cruz’s home and support was desperately needed?

In Nikolas’s life, Linda would have been the only person that had remained for the longest time – even if things were not perfect at home – she was still there and so, for her to pass away also, may have been the final straw on what broke Nikolas and sent him on a downward spiral.

Are we are looking at someone here with a deeply broken heart which led to a deeply broken mind, where he wanted to take his pain out on others?

In this case, we may never know the answers to these questions. However, we cannot continue to just say someone like Nikolas is ‘evil’, and leave it at that, and blame other things, this will not help us stop these acts from happening again.  We must look at why and start talking about what broken attachments are doing to peoples minds.

I asked Dr. Faye Snyder, Child Forensic Evaluator, author and the founder of the PaRC parenting school, who has spent the last several decades studying and evaluating why people like Nikolas carry out such violent acts, what do we need to do to ensure that these acts don’t keep happening.  I also asked her what she thinks about the high rates of American children and teens who are on psychiatric medications.

Interview with Dr. Faye Snyder

Anna Rodgers: Dr. Faye, What causes the violence we are seeing in USA schools?

Dr. Faye Snyder: Do we really want to know? With so much focus on stopping the violence, it would be great if we really wanted to know what causes it.

Why do you think we don’t want to know what causes it?

We don’t want to know cause, especially if it is a problem of broken attachments. There are too many ramifications for asking mothers or fathers to maintain an empathic attachment to their babies for at least three years.

Can you explain what that means?

I don’t believe I recall any violent predator who has not suffered a broken attachment. In my book: The Predictor Scale: Predicting and Understanding Behavior, according to Critical Childhood Experiences, I have included about 25 vignettes on real people, and the formula holds in every case.  

This is the primary cause, far above abuse.

Not only that, but insecure attachments magnify all other emotional injuries, while secure attachments mitigate them. From broken attachments there stems separation anxiety, fears of abandonment (leading to a cold acceptance of isolation), mistrust, emptiness, expectations of rejection, feelings of worthlessness, jealousy, bitterness and a need to blame (pretty much in that order)… and from there becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy if someone doesn’t read the cues and intervene in the family.

In all of this, there is no development of empathy—only rage and hatred. One must experience empathy to give it. That’s the way it is with mirror neurons. We treat others as we have been treated.

Below is an interview with Dr. Faye and Stefan Molleneux, about what loneliness, broken attachments and traumatic childhoods do to people. 

Why don’t our ‘experts’ identify these children before it’s too late? 

I don’t believe forensic evaluators understand the essential causes of violence. There is too much focus on genetic explanations and too much assumption of inborn behaviours with very little understanding of attachment trauma and the role of mirror neurons in our development.

Unfortunately, the harm done by male privilege and the backlash of the women’s movement has depended upon genetic assumptions. It is rather conflicting logic and difficult to follow. We believe that there is no difference in capabilities for women and men, but we believe mothers can put their babies in daycare, and the negative results are from genes, rather than daycare.

We ignore the science of evolution and how babies were evolved over millions of years to spend the first three years with their mothers followed by an individuation process facilitated by fathers. We blind ourselves to the results of rotating caregivers and of behaviours imprinted in the home via mirror neurons.

We miss what is right in front of us to see. The damage done by rotating caregivers is exploited by the pharmaceutical industry as evidence of ‘fragile genes’. The imitation by one generation of another is assumed to be evidence of genetic instruction rather than evidence of imprinting by mirror neurons.

Schools offer more funding for children who have a medical diagnosis, and they prefer medicated students, because they are easier to manage. HMOs prefer the medical model, because they can get them in and out faster and save money.

Employers like women in the work force, because we lower the wages by flooding the market. We don’t want this information from our experts.

Do you have a simple formula we could follow for looking for signs? 

Actually, I have spent the last thirty years trying to develop a clear formula, based upon my observations. I have put together this:

40% failed attachment – whether lack of attunement or lack of continuity, as in having rotating caregivers

30% child abuse – whether physical, sexual or emotional

15% being raised in a family that blames  the child (leading to bitterness, revenge and retaliation)

15% from requiring members of the family to keep their complaints and emotions to themselves (which forbids self-reflection and ultimately healing). 

It sounds like we could use this formula to help with prevention?

If we really do want to prevent violence, our attempts to assess children should include school counselor’s notes on their attachment history (quality and continuity); the family’s method of modifying behaviour (abuse, shame, or exploitation versus safe affection, coaching and encouragement); the family’s inclination to judge, blame and retaliate, versus self-reflect and self-correct; and the family’s inclination to repress the authentic personality, creating a child who is withdrawn and who lives “underground”, telling adults what they want to hear, instead of learning respectful ways of expressing their thoughts and feelings, something some parents don’t want to hear, all the while building up more anger and bitterness inside.

Would the schools be willing to give parents the option of coming in to learn better parenting techniques as well as giving the child a consequence? If the parents decline, maybe then the child’s name goes on a registry.

Are we ready for that kind of renewal? By the time they enter school, they will be highly symptomatic with the above developing traits. Are we ready to ask questions? Are we ready to intervene in families because their children exhibit these traits?

Below: Constitutional Attorney Jonathan Emord speaking on the link between psychiatric drugs and school shootings and why there should be a federal investigation.

So many children and teens in the USA are on psychiatric medications more than ever – do you think this is going to help?

Bear with me for taking a detour here. When I was in school, we all sat nicely in class, went home and did our homework. We didn’t have domestic violence, guns, drugs, rapes, suicides, shootings and a lot of mental illness at school. There was some, but nothing like today. Children are not what they used to be. Today’s children are more symptomatic than in evolutionary history because evolution designed small children to be with their mothers continuously until at least three years of age, if not until age five.

These disturbed children are perfect tools for the medical model to convince us that some of us are born defective. We have been told that research exists to prove these children were born with fragile genes. The research has been modified to sell more drugs and to make us believe the problems are inborn, not from our parenting. Thus, we conclude that these children who threaten us also victimize their poor parents. The cause is disguised by the belief that our children were born that way, at least in part. So, instead of offering the parents parenting classes, we give drugs to their children.

Thus, the solution to medicate is often an absolute disaster. Almost all the children and young adults who have become mass shooters were on psychotropic drugs, which put these disturbed individuals over the edge. Some say that it’s the drugs alone that put the individual in a homicidal or suicidal state. These medications interfere with learning. They neutralize the evidence of neglect and abuse. They create addiction. They create symptoms of lower intelligence. They create psychosis rather than insight. They alter reality and a child’s capacity to adapt to it. They are chemical lobotomies to make these acting-out, symptomatic children more manageable.

Instead of getting that they suffer and need our help, we attempt to neutralize them, but the side affects are psychosis and intolerance. In some cases, they were not even that disturbed, but the medication caused them to become psychotic.

Nearly all the shooters have been on psychotropic medications and got reportedly worse under the medication. That is, their thinking about their plight in life becomes more disturbed, and their solutions become more psychotic. Did you know that we are giving psychotropic drugs to infants and toddlers now? This is getting out of control with terrible consequences.

Do you think parenting is getting better or worse?

Yes, it’s better and no, it’s worse. What is better is our understanding of the harm of corporal punishment. Sex abuse is out of the closet. Intolerance of gay children has diminished. Today, agents from children’s protective services take children away from parents who hit their children or they require parenting classes to parents who spank, which present alternative and more effective ways to discipline than teaching children violent ways to respond to disagreements.

So, fewer children are punished with whippings or spankings these days, but other parents have become so sympathetic with their children’s lives that many of them have become ‘rescuers’. They protect their children from learning, growing and discovering cause and effect. They fail to learn to solve problems or to become resilient. They often raise childlike adults who throw tantrums when they don’t get their way. These children act entitled. They often believe they should not have to bear a negative feeling or a difficult task. They are wimps. The results are epidemic.

Some mothers actually believe they ‘need’ their children. They don’t help them grow up and individuate. Often, because mothers want to compensate their children for not being there or because they have inferred that discipline is traumatic, we have seen them rescue their children from negative consequences. Every time they do for their child what the child could be learning to do, they weaken their child for life.

Some fathers may even think bullying behavior by a toddler is a cute display of high self-esteem. Some parents rescue children from bad grades by doing their homework for them. They rescue them from consequences in school, by fighting the authorities on behalf of their children or by ignoring the negative reports, as if they are just phases that will be outgrown.

I apologize for beating a dead horse, but the worst parenting is sometimes done with regret. Putting babies and toddlers in daycare (especially for full days 5 days a week, although some infants won’t do well being separated, even for small periods at all) causes the greatest harm, because abandonment trauma predisposes us to all other trauma, as if we have those “fragile genes” that researchers infer when they interpret their results.

The usual response I get is that, “I have to work. Some mothers just have to work. What are we supposed to do?” Sometimes it’s said in hopelessness. Sometimes it’s said in anger. I usually respond, “I am a feminist, myself, and I understand. I’m so sorry, but I didn’t create the human design. I’m just the messenger. Maybe we can brainstorm about what else you can do.”

If something isn’t done to help children and teens deal with their trauma’s what do you think will happen in the future?

You know, I watched the town hall meeting after the massacre. I was very impressed with the character of those older children. I do believe there is good parenting going on out there, but maybe it’s in more affluent neighborhoods, where mothers or father can commit to being the stay-at-home parent. The parents who have the healthiest children have the children who will be the wisest and make the best leaders. They will excel.

Still, we are all watching children go down hill. We can expect more massacres. We can expect more prisoners. We can expect more premature deaths from overdosing. We can expect more selfish people without empathy. We can expect mental hospitals will become the order of the day, and some people will never leave, if they are being treated according to the medical model. We will see more domestic violence, and we will see the courts abused and more false complaints will be filed as well as real ones. More parents will lose their children to the lesser parent, because children’s protective services and the courts don’t know how to tell the difference between a false complaint and a real one.

What do you think may have tipped Nikolas over the edge?

If I knew what I would need to know, I could answer you, but I don’t have enough information. After every mass shooting I am struck by the lack of coverage over the shooters early childhood. Nothing told yet explains his actions.

The other real question is why don’t reporters seek to find out what happened in the first five years. They assume, as does the public, that those years are irrelevant. We will remain in the Dark Ages until we appreciate the critical importance of those first years and learn to ask those questions. That, in it self is evidence of what happens when we don’t believe parenting and childhood cause these behaviors. We like to think the behaviors were inevitable and inborn.

I can somewhat answer your question about what caused this killer to kill. First there are people on psychotropic medications that have committed violent acts and murders who would not have otherwise done so and who did not have childhoods sufficiently horrible to otherwise account for their behaviors. So, simply bad childhoods, as well as terrible childhoods, can end in violence if you add psychotropic medications to the mix.

I know one researcher, who says that those who can’t handle the meds can be identified for intolerance via lab testing before taking them, but it would cost us a few hundred dollars to do the advanced assessment, and most people don’t want to spend the extra money.

Otherwise, I have to speculate. In order for Nicholas to turn out this violent, he would have to have suffered a failed attachment. Nothing in the news indicates a failed attachment, but he suffered several experiences before his rampage that would trigger a failed attachment. Adoption at birth would not create a failed attachment. That’s not to say that some infants don’t suffer being taken from their biological mother, but they can recover if the adoptive mother is sufficiently attentive. It’s hard to imagine a couple that wanted to adopt so very much not creating a sufficient attachment, but we really do not know as his adoptive parents are no longer here to ask.

We know Nickolas’ father died when he was younger. He probably experienced some bullying and social rejection after he had no father to lean on. We can’t know whether the attachments with his parents created social skills and a sense of lightheartedness. I wonder if he had that.

Cruz does have the slight look of fetal alcohol syndrome, which could explain why he was adopted at birth. He might have been taken from his birth mother, because she was an alcoholic. You might see the same sort of look in Adam Lanza and some other shooters. If he had FAS, he would have had more difficulty attaching and more difficulty adopting social skills.

He could therefore end up on the autism spectrum, which only means that he would have had difficulty forming social relationships. Between the lack of social skills and the odd appearance, the child would possibly attract social ostracism and bullying. In that situation, you could say that students at the school could have contributed to the rejection, isolation and rage that Cruz seemed to suffer, something that perhaps his adoptive mother was able to mitigate. (A similar phenomenon took place at Columbine, despite the inept assessment by the FBI.)

He did seem to react to triggers of a failed attachment like social rejection. Another trigger was a breakup with his girlfriend followed by seeing her with another guy. After that, or perhaps before that, he experienced the death of his mother and expulsion from school. For someone who felt so much rejection and loss, the medication could have put him over the top.

What issues can adopted teens have? 

Adopted children don’t have major attachment or abandonment issues if they are adopted at birth. However, “adopted at birth” often does not mean adopted at birth. I have known of multiple situations where adopted at birth mean that there was no mother until the legal system allowed for the adoption. Sometimes the newborn is motherless for weeks or even months. That would create major insecurity in a personality for life.

Children who are adopted at an older age, but still during the attachment years of zero to three or four, have often undergone a trauma or two before they lost a parent and experienced abandonment (even by the death of a parent). The younger they were, the worse the impact on the child when the attachment failed. Children with attachment failures, whether adopted or having suffered a failed attachment in the home (i.e. post partum depression, parents leaving the infant for a vacation, putting the baby in daycare or a cold, non-empathic mother) will have major behavioral issues as teens.

If they fall in love and everything goes well, there is some healing. If they fall in love and they are rejected, their internal scars are re-opened. If they have not learned impulse control as a child, they are in big trouble and their acting out will be commiserate with their level of rejection and rage.

Nikolas was recently expelled from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Would this have also triggered abandonment issues?

Rejection inflames abandonment issues. Children in schools should be taught this, for their own safety’s sake. They should all care about a child who is being bullied for their own safety’s sake. Bullies put all the children at risk. Oh, and bullies have been bullied.

The media don’t seem to report much on the childhoods of perpetrators.  What would you like to see the media start to do? 

I would like the media, school counsellors, therapists, judges, police, social workers and FBI to ask and answer the following questions:

  • What happened in the child’s first three to five years?
  • Who took care of him as an infant?
  • What kind of care was it?
  • Was he enjoyed as an infant?
  • Were there attachment breaks?

This is critical. Dig, and they will find it. Guaranteed (about 40% of cause).

Find out what kind of interaction the child had with his parents. Was his father critical and rejecting, as is often the case of shooters, or was he a supportive coach about how to navigate the world? Did he hold a high bar and encourage growth? Was the child’s mother critical and rejecting or nurturing? How was he disciplined? Was there abuse (sexual, emotional or physical)? (About 30% of cause)

Did the family have a blame ethic where they just blame the child for everything, or were they modeling self-reflection and self-correction? Reporters will probably find that the families are critical of others if not of the child. They will be prone to blame and may have a drive for punishment (15% of cause).

Was the child driven “underground” or did they encourage him to express his thoughts and feelings, even if critical of them? The parents may have innocently been oblivious to the child’s feelings and thoughts and are simply not good at recognizing suffering and enfolding a sufferer, because their own parents didn’t. The child may have learned to keep his tormented thoughts to himself, leaking outside of the home if not in it. A child who cannot share his suffering with a caring adult will not be able to heal and may become a time bomb.

Hopefully, that caring adult would be the parents.

I believe reporters are afraid to walk on this ground, even if they know about it. It is forbidden. As long as it is forbidden to identify parenting as the cause, we will have shooters and other disturbing grown children amongst us. If reporters would gather this information, we could begin to keep the data on causation and begin to prove to the public what they must know for things to improve.

Otherwise, reporters indirectly telegraph the notion that these behaviors were inborn. That we look at the problem with so much concern but don’t see parenting as a cause is evidence of our deliberate blindness, as consumers of the media.

Should we be angry with Nikolas Cruz? Where do we lay the blame? Guns?

Time bombs are created in the home. They are not born. They are created with a specific formula, which even the FBI does not understand. Forensic evaluators often do not understand this formula.

If reporters would begin to cover this news, we could turn this around. Since this news is taboo, and there is only one institution that gets to oversee childhood treatment, we need child protective services to release information to the press about these factors. They should not be confidential. This information should belong to the public. Bad parenting should not be protected as confidential information. That’s us sending suffering underground.

We are entitled to privacy, but not secrecy when our choices harm others. I’d like to add that these social workers should be trained much better in assessment, as well. (I wish I could do it. I almost became a trainer for “front end” responders with child protective services, but they became suddenly very private and the arrangement was off.)

Nickolas Cruz was a child who had to grow up. Given the events of his life, it was not going to end any other way. It’s up to us. Do we really want to know why people behave this way? Are we prepared to make changes?

Faye Snyder, PsyD, aka Dr. Faye, has written seven books on understanding behavior. She is an expert on parenting, attachment, relationship skills, anger management, domestic violence, child custody, trauma, healing, sexual trauma, sex offending and assessment. 

Dr. Faye also is the founder of  PaRC The Parenting and Relationship Counseling Foundation is a non-profit agency dedicated to educating the world on the critical importance of parenting and relationship skills via the Snyder Causal Theory and Treatment, while raising mental health to new levels, one person and one family at a time.

Sadhguru Explains How Shiva Was An Extraterrestrial & Could Still Be “Coming & Going”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Sadguru takes time to explain the origins of the Hindu god Shiva, and how he was most likely an extraterrestrial being that may still be visiting our planet.

  • Reflect On:

    Ancient lore about visitors from other planets and dimensions has existed for a long time, and continues today. The evidence for it is strong, but our disbelief and the implications of this truth have us label it as mere 'interpretation' of history.

Ancient history is loaded with stories of beings from other worlds, flying objects and accounts of highly advanced technology. This goes far beyond mere ‘imagination’ and folklore simply because there is too much evidence, in multiple forms, that we are being visited and have been visited before. Take this example from Erick Von Daniken regarding the Eskimos:

The mythology of the Eskimos says that the first tribes were brought to the North by “gods” with brazen wings. The oldest American Indian Sagas mention a Thunderbird who introduced fire and fruit to them. The Mayan legend, with the Popol Vuh, tells us that the “gods” were able to recognize everything: the universe, the four cardinal points of the compass, and even the round shape of the earth. What are the Eskimos doing talking about metal birds? Why do the Indians mention a Thunderbird? How are the ancestors of the Mayas supposed to have known that the earth is round? – Erich Von Daniken (Chariots of the Gods)

Another example I recently wrote about regarding possible extraterrestrial figures in ancient lore is the story of Quetzalcoatl. This figure was considered to be mythical tale. Spanish chronicler Juan de Torquemada states that Quetzalcoatl was ‘a fair and ruddy-complexioned man with a long beard.’ Another describes him as follows: “A mysterious person…a white man with strong formation of body, broad forehead, large eyes, and a flowing beard. He was dressed in a long, white robe reaching to his feet. He condemned sacrifices, except of fruits and flowers, and was known as the god of peace…When addressed on the subject of war he is reported to have stopped up his ears with his fingers.” (source) You can read more about that story here.

Again, there are stories like this throughout history, from various time periods across several cultures. It reminds me of the building of pyramids on Earth. I always ask myself, why would multiple civilizations around the world construct such a design when then had no contact or knowledge of each other? Why so obsessed with the pyramids, and why don’t we hear about all of them, like the Bosnian Pyramid Complex? The only cogent answer to all these questions is the simplest, as expounded upon by the ‘extraterrestrial interpretation.’

Why ‘Interpretation’?

The only reason the ancient extraterrestrial narrative is labelled as an ‘interpretation’ is because the findings are so significant and so paradigm-shifting, that it’s hard to accept as truth. Cognitive dissonance sets in. It’s similar to how the Church labelled scientists as heretics, only not as harsh.

New information that threatens the current paradigm of thought, no matter how compelling, has always faced ridicule and suppression by our supposed “intellectual authorities.” One thing is for certain, nobody should offer an opinion on this matter until they’ve looked into the phenomenon themselves and have familiarized themselves with the information. If not because of outright ignorance, these stories are not given credence because there is an intentional effort to hide them by those in the know, those in power. And so the most important truths and facts about our world are rarely presented to us above board. Most of the time they can only be discovered if we actually have the urge to dig around to find it, and digest it with an open mind. Otherwise we give our minds over to mainstream perception manipulation that still goes largely unnoticed today.

It’s still a difficult pattern to break, especially for a subject that we know has an “official campaign of secrecy and ridicule” (Hiellenkoetter, CIA) attached to it. Many people have been employed by the CIA and other agencies to do nothing other than debunk, ridicule, and spread misinformation about these matters. However, the information is growing so rapidly these misinformation efforts are losing their previous effectiveness. Check out this article for the latest mainstream evidence supporting the ‘extraterrestrial interpretation.’ And as we come to better understand the truth about extraterrestrial presence today, it becomes much easier to look back into the past, to the many great and fantastic accounts written, and see them as real-life descriptions of extraterrestrial encounters.

Sadhguru on Shiva

Below is a video of Sadhguru, one of many scholars in the field who, when you listen to him, reveals himself as a true student of esoteric ancient philosophy, physics, and metaphysics. He tells a short story about Shiva, who was considered to be a God by the people in ancient India. Sadhguru explains how the story of Shiva and it’s origins, and even the Mountain where he supposedly resided, is full of evidence suggesting high intelligence most likely from another place. He provides multiple points cited in Shiva’s story that have him arrive at that conclusion.

He explains how Shiva was surrounded by friends who were odd looking, different, and not human. Most of the time they were described as demons by the people, simply because they looked different. Shiva could also not impregnate a human woman in the traditional way, because his alien sperm did not work. His children were born in a different way. He explains how multiple non-human women were brought in to help with the process.

All these things suggest that he came from elsewhere, did what he wanted to do, and went back and periodically he went and came at different times, this could have happened over many thousands of years, still coming and going, still coming and going …

Sadhguru cites multiple references in the literature explaining how Shiva is not human, and even describes a vast intelligence that must have been behind the creation of Mount Kailash, a mountain attributed to to Shiva as being his home as mentioned above. Sadhguru explains how Kailash isn’t a place on Earth, either.

He also describes some paranormal experiences he’s had with these beings. “Literally, these beings went after my ring finger…with so much force.”

They know our ways, or they taught us these ways, or they made us this way. We don’t know how much of a role they’ve played in our making, but definitely…It didn’t come from here, there was a deeper understanding elsewhere and it was just brought it us. He came at a certain time, as a youth, and he left as a youth. He was not born here, nor did he die here.

Many spiritual leaders have been outspoken about this topic, here’s another example from the Dalai Lama.

More From Ancient India

Ancient Indian lore is fascinating from the extraterrestrial perspective. In the Mahabharata, Vimanas are described. Vimana is a Sanskrit word that has multiple meanings, usually referred to as the palace of a god or an emperor, a sort of vehicle. Today the word means aircraft.

One Veda epic that dates back to the  the fourth/fifth century, B.C describes a Vimana as a “chariot that resembles the sun, that aerial and excellent chariot going everywhere at will, resembling a bright cloud in the sky, and the king got in and the excellent chariot rose up into the higher atmosphere.”  ( Von Daniken, Erich, Chariots of The Gods)

In the Mahabharata, measurements are even given for one of the Vimanas. It’s described as having twelve cubits in circumference, with four strong wheels, approximately 20 to 25 feet in circumference, and about seven feet in diameter. (Mahabharata VIII.31.80)

Here’s a study published in the International Journal of Scientific & Engineering going into some detail about them.

Vimanas were kept in Vimana Griha, or hanger, were said to be propelled by a yellowish-white-liquid, and were used for various purposes. Airships were present all over the world. The plain of Nazca in Peru is very famous for appearing from the high altitude to be a rather elaborate, if confusing airfield. Some researchers have theorized that this was some sort of Atlantean outpost. We do not know what our ancestors understood by them. In the Amarangasutradhara five flying machines were originally built. Later there were some additions. Four main types of flying Vimanas are described: Rukma, Sundara, Tripura and Sakuna. The Rukma were conical in shape and dyed gold, whereas the Sundata were like rockets and had a silver sheen.

“They roar like off into the sky until they appear like comets.” The Mahabharata and various Sanskrit books describe at length these chariots, “powered by winged lighting…it was a ship that soared into the air, flying to both the solar and stellar regions.” (Von Daniken) Perhaps this is how Shiva travelled?

Another interesting story that comes from the Mahabharata reveals the history of the “unmarried Kunti,” who not only received a visit from the sun god but also had a son by him, a son who is supposed to have been as radiant as the sun itself. This matches stories in numerous ancient texts in numerous cultures and religions, stories of ‘gods’ interbreeding with humans, like the story of Moses, or like Gilgamesh, or Arjuna in the Mahabharata, or the Nephilim in the Bible (a few of many examples). It also eerily correlates to abductions of modern day, forced abduction as well as friendly extraterrestrial encounters that many people report today.

There are commonalities everywhere even from different accounts. There could probably be thousands of books written on this subject alone, it’s vast, and hard to understand. But there is one thing in common, a theme that’s continued till throughout this day, and that’s people coming from elsewhere.

The Takeaway

The idea that we are not alone in the universe has been subjected to vast amounts of secrecy. Within the past few years, the tip of the iceberg has emerged in the public domain in the form of witness testimony, video footage, pictures, and radar tracking reports. This subject is no longer taboo, and nobody can really deny the fact that that there is legitimate, abundant evidence that we are being visited, and have been visited for a long time. It’s an important subject that, as I’ve said before, leaves no aspect of humanity untouched and has tremendous implications in all fields.

When it comes to ancient history, archaeology and anthropology, there is no shortage of evidence and information. The problem is, it’s largely been ignored or brushed under the rug due to social stigmatization. Take the field of anthropology, for example. UFOs should be a staple in academia, especially in that field. Below is a great statement from an anthropologists from a paper that outlines the point I just made above.

The case of unidentified flying objects (UFOs) highlights the precarious context for our discipline, and for academia. By centering this examination on how anthropologists have dealt (or failed to deal) with UFOs, it becomes clear exactly how anthropologists are subject to the very processes of demarcation, stigmatizing, and epistemic alignments that are often arrayed against the subjects of our research. -Ryan Jonathan Cook

The takeaway here is to not be afraid to speak your truth or voice your opinion on a topic that’s ridiculed by the mainstream. Stick to your own education, your evidence and your intellect to determine what’s what, instead of simply following the crowd. We must question what we’ve been told and made to believe, and why we have such a hostile attitude towards other concepts of reality that are clearly valid.

David Icke Explains Why It’s A Shame That George H. W. Bush Wasn’t Interrogated Before He Died

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    With the passing of George H. W. Bush, yet another bloodline family member moves on without having to account to the public for his crimes against humanity.

  • Reflect On:

    What is the value of coming to a full understanding of the dark and horrific crimes perpetrated by ruling bloodline family members like George H. W. Bush? What role do they play in our collective evolution?

In the wake of the passing of former President George H. W. Bush, and the reverence and solemnity that pervaded his state funeral, I was struck with a particularly paradoxical emotion. On one hand, I fully endorse the tradition of reliving the highest points of achievement of someone who had just passed away, and imbuing the totality of their life with grand purpose and meaning, as I myself was happy to do in writing my own father’s eulogy. On the other hand, I cannot fully escape the regret I feel that another bloodline family member who has perpetrated great and horrific crimes against humanity has moved on without having to make himself accountable to the world, and in the process reveal the means and motives of the bloodline family rule of the planet to enable humanity to fully liberate itself from it.

Certainly, when I enter into my ‘higher self’ perspective, I understand that acceptance and forgiveness of all past misdeeds is essential for healing and moving forward. But healing and moving forward also require knowing the truth and having it acknowledged, so we know exactly what it is we are forgiving. Otherwise the anger and despair are likely to simply be buried. The incongruity between the lavish honor and praise ubiquitously delivered through mainstream media and the harrowing accounts I’ve heard and read about George H. W. Bush’s cruel Satanic practices drew me to this video interview clip with David Icke, where he explains that there are a number of reasons why we need to look at and expose the practices of the man he calls ‘Father Bush’.

Father Bush High Up The Ladder

David Icke puts George H. W. Bush, who died at age 94, in a category with others high up in the ranks of the ruling bloodline families, aligned with their darkest practices, such as drinking the adrenalized blood of tortured children to lengthen their own lives:

These people always seem to live long lives, don’t they, the Kissingers, and the Father Bushes, and the David Rockefellers, and the Queen Mother in England, who lived to a hundred and two, and the Queen of England, now, is well of age, because they’re not given the same treatment, health treatment, the rest of us get, one of the bloody reasons, and also the other things that they do which is very dark, satanic, and to do with the energy of children.

More on the treatment of children later. But important to note that G. H. W. Bush’s testimony would have been invaluable because he was higher up the bloodline rank than most other high profile public servants who belong to this group, like Barack Obama or his son George W. Bush. In fact, David Wilcock recounts a story he heard from multiple sources that when Barack Obama had been sworn into office, he had a meeting with all the past presidents, and then a private 30 minute sit-down with Father Bush, who called him a ‘nigger’ and warned him that he was to follow what the ruling elite told him to do or else his wife and daughters would be brutally raped and killed.

George H. W. Bush seemed to be a kingpin in the Deep State and publicly made great strides in advancing the New World Order agenda, actually being the one who popularized the phrase, while privately pulling important strings to advance the Deep State agenda, like helping to align the CIA with the globalist plan during his time as CIA Director and having a hand early on in the assassination of John F. Kennedy. David Icke says he would have liked to interrogate Bush not only for his political role in trying to enslave humanity as a whole, but perhaps more importantly for his dark, hidden practices as well.

Father George Bush is such a classic purveyor of this madness, this insanity that they want to impose on the world, and as presidents go, he’s a bit higher up the ladder, than say his son, or some of the others, and I would want to confront him with, not just questions about his role through the years in so many things, because coming from a bloodline family, he would have been brought, from birth, he would be developed to be in the positions that he was in, head of the CIA, and vice-president, president and all these other things that he was involved in.

But there’s another area of Father George Bush, which is something that a lot of conspiracy research doesn’t cover, but really needs to, and that is pedophilia. It’s a deep rabbit hole, but when you connect the dots, you can explain why the ratio of pedophiles to positions of power, especially in the higher levels, is fantastic compared with the ratio of pedophiles in the general population.

The Torture Of Children

In the video interview David Icke does not go too much into the evidence regarding the crimes of Bush Sr., which he says is discussed in much greater detail in his books and full lectures,  though he does point out that he has had firsthand witness testimony of what Bush Sr. has done:

This man, father George Bush, has not just been responsible for the most unspeakable, grotesque, unimaginable sexual abuse and torture of children, using various electromagnetic technologies and such that cause enormous pain for the kids who are tortured, this guy’s been responsible for the deaths of goodness knows how many children. And I’ve met some of the adults that he abused as children and survived, and they are absolutely scrambled mentally, emotionally, and physically, because of the horrors that this man put them through.

Now there’s a number of reasons, Luke, why we need to look at this, and expose this, first of all to stop the kids having this done to them, but also to let people to see into the minds and the mentality of those who are behind this global conspiracy.

Lack of Empathy

Icke goes on to discuss how the reason one would want to interrogate Bush is to come to understand why members of the elite ruling bloodline families behave the way they do. And the key point is to understand their complete lack of empathy. Icke says ‘there is something about their genetics which has deleted empathy. It’s deleted the ability to feel the consequences, for others, of your actions.’

Because our own empathy is so central to our understanding of human life, it is not surprising that many good, kind, well-adjusted people simply cannot fathom that there are people in high places putting children through excruciating torture through sexual abuse as well as ritual sacrifice. And because so many cannot fathom it, and might not be willing to even consider it, exposing it has been a slow, piecemeal process while these practices continue to happen in our world.

If we can imagine that from birth, members of these bloodline families are themselves put through ritual abuse and mind-control processes from when they are very young to completely sever their empathy for other human beings, and essentially live in a state of dissociative fear where their only satisfaction is personal power, wealth, and control over others, then it becomes possible to come to grips with what is really going on at the highest levels of power in the world.

While George H. W. Bush is no longer around to reveal the tale of his transgressions, there is still a multitude of opportunities for us to uncover not only the extent of his crimes, but the big picture they help to reveal about bloodline family rule on our planet.

The Takeaway

Difficult as it is to go through, the truth about how the ruling elite controls and manipulates humanity through its deception and dark practices is an essential step in our awakening. It’s important for us to break through our own fear and loathing and come to understand the nature of having been ruled by non-empathetic psychopaths who have been programmed to look and seem ‘normal’ on the outside. We need to stop projecting our own humanity onto them because all vestiges of humanity has been drummed out of them.

Condemning them and getting angry may very well be a stage many of us need to go through, but eventually we will need to recognize them as victims themselves and forgive them. While they might not be aware of it during their lives, they are still a part of the human family and ultimately they chose to play these dark roles in service to human evolution.

The Clinton’s Resort To Groupon Due To Poor Ticket Sales, Tour Tickets Now Half Price or Less

Published

on

File photo © Reuters / Rick Wilking

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The Clinton's have reverted to Groupon, selling tour tickets for half-price or less in order to get butts in seats at their events. Seems low ticket sales and empty stadiums was where their tour was headed.

  • Reflect On:

    Are people waking up to the reality of who some politicians are? Are we seeing through the mainstream media's narrative controlling enough to change our actions? Are we truly awakening? We feel it!

When Bill and Hillary Clinton decided to go on a speaking tour in what appeared to be an attempt to stay relevant, they received a great deal of backlash from people asking them to ‘go away already.’ At first, you might imagine that they will sell tickets anyway, there are enough people who voted for her and supported her and  will go see them… right?

It appears not. The pair has now turned to Groupon to flog tickets for half price or less in Canadian and US cities. A search through Groupon will reveal sales in multiple cities. Empty stadiums are not what the Clinton’s had in mind, and it seems now they want to make the most of their tour when it comes to attendance.

“A couple for the ages:” the Groupon description for the event reads. “Since first meeting at Yale Law School in the early 1970s, Bill and Hillary Clinton have built one of the most influential political dynasties in American history. He, as the first Democratic president in six decades to be elected twice, and she as a U.S. Senator, Secretary of State, and the first woman to be nominated for president by a major U.S. political party.”

Influential political dynasties indeed as they now are summoned to hearings about illegal use of private email servers and selling Uranium 1 to Russia… showing Clinton and Russian collusion, a projection they have pushed onto Trump it appears. An ethical political dynasty indeed.

Fake News

I personally found this story interesting as a few weeks ago I came across a story by a prominent fake news website NewsPunch, formerly YourNewsWire, and their headline read “Source: Bill & Hillary Clinton’s 13-City Tour Canceled Due To ‘Poor Ticket Sales.” This content has now been removed. When I saw it I thought to myself, this is great! People are truly waking up here and opting out of the Clinton’s. A couple of minutes of research revealed the story was fake. And just like I told the owners of that website many months ago, the truth is always stronger and more interesting than fiction. Journalistic integrity will not only reveal the truth the mainstream refuses to look at, but it will also help humanity awaken. Fake news stories only give more reason for censorship and confusion.

So here we are just a few weeks later and guess what? The truth is quite a story still, and makes precisely the same point. The Clinton’s are not getting the blind support from people they once did, and this is a good thing given who they are as people and what they are involved in. People are truly beginning to wake up.

Will Hillary be running for president in 2020? You would think she wouldn’t given the results of this tour, but who knows.

The Takeaway

Two things I’d love to get across here.

We’re in a time of great awakening. And while the mainstream media might make us think we are a lot more divided than we actually are, it’s up to us to see through this stuff, not play into it and remain neutral within ourselves. The more we don’t side with the tantalizing drama of revenge, politics, right and wrong and protecting our political identities, the more we continue to see the truth clearly, project a higher state of consciousness, the more we pull fuel out of the world we want to see change.

The truth is always the way to go! And regardless of how much we love the drama of what a fake story can say, spreading it and making it viral only hurts the overall idea of seeking truth. Read articles, not headlines. If you do read the article, look for sources of claims and see how they line up. This is how we can take responsibility for what goes out there, vs waiting for Snopes or Facebook to tell us what’s right and wrong. We all know that will only lead us to more controlled narratives.
