The Electric Electorate: Can We Consciously Navigate The Political Process?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Politics (particularly in America) has become a hyper-polarized process that breeds division and manipulates ideas via group-think.

  • Reflect On:

    As the conscious community, what role can we play in unpacking our experiences and integrating them within our communities?

There is a growing sense and concern that our institutions are failing us – and that concern is well-founded.  From government and religion to media and education – we are seeing institutional failures destabilize our society, breed division amongst us, and deprive so many of their basic human rights and dignity.

Many have resorted to rebellion and protest while others have abandoned the system entirely, seeking a life outside of normative society’s parameters.  Many within the conscious community have withdrawn from the political process altogether, opting to focus on self-exploration, experience and conscious expansion.

The Trump presidency has caused us to look at our ugly face in the mirror – and has served as a shock to the system, exposing some of the unsightly truths that exist beyond the veil, including a shadow government and global oligarchical cabal that has largely evaded public consciousness.  This has produced a system that has been successful at controlling narratives and producing both an anti-intellectualism and group-think herd mentality that suspends critical thought.

Now more than ever – the ability to think for ourselves is paramount.

“The ultimate tyranny in a society is not control by martial law. It is control by the psychological manipulation of consciousness” ~ Barbara Marciniak

While there is indeed an entire universe out there for us to experience and explore, there is also a very real world manifesting right here in 3rd dimension – in the now – that we can access, influence, and enhance – and this world desperately needs our contributions.  On the turbulent path to questing for higher consciousness, most are greatly assisted by access to independent media, fast internet access, free thought exercise, clean water/food supply, and healthy lifestyle habits (diet, exercise, rest).  All of that requires resources that so many in this world do not have access to – and the notion that one could just hit the seat-eject button to parachute up, up and away from this reality is an option that so few can even make without the privilege and resources to do so.

While there are many avenues to explore to effectuate change in this world – should we reconsider the potential to bring forth change in the political and civic arenas?

Restore Politics?

Staying out of politics is a luxury that many have when their liberties aren’t impeded and their very identity isn’t politicized.  The child from Guatemala who is separated from her parents at the border and is subject to traumatic incarceration, displacement, and in some instances human trafficking is proximately affected by the political climate of the time.  We may be able to see how broken the political system is, but that realization in itself doesn’t stop bombs from flying over the homes of millions of innocent civilians who fall victim to proxy wars waged by corrupted elites bent on destroying humanity.

The banking cabal still rigs economies and foments cycles of debt and scarcity.  Civil liberties and human rights violations continue. The military-industrial complex grows stronger, richer, and more corrupt.  Our food and water supplies become more toxic and polluted – and the list goes on.

This is not to say that there isn’t a compelling argument for staying out politics (the word politics signifies polarity – pole – polls and has a tendency to polarize the mind engaged in the red versus blue dichotomy) – but is that argument going to produce solutions that address the political decay within government? Let’s consider for a second what would result from the conscious community engaging the political process and contributing to an awakening within their respective communities.

Let’s take a look at the polling data from the 2018 U.S. Presidential election:  As a percentage of eligible voters, Clinton received 28.43% (65,845,063) of all votes compared to Trump’s 27.20% (62,980,160).  Total voter turnout was estimated at 59% of the voting eligible population.  Many within the conscious community were repelled by both Clinton and Trump – and again – there were compelling reasons for that rebuke of the polarized system.  Some voted third or fourth party, opting to cast a vote for Jill Stein or Gary Johnson.  Others opted out after revelations that the Democratic National Committee (DNC) actively tipped the scales and unfairly adjudicated the democratic primary process, refusing to referee an equal playing field at the expense of the Bernie Sanders campaign.

What if all of that disenfranchised energy was funnelled into infusing the political system with a conscious awakening?  We just saw a micro-experiment of this in New York’s 14th Congressional District which represents large swaths of the Bronx & Queens.  This past week, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defeated a powerful, bought & paid for Corporate Democrat Joseph Crowley in an election all of the cynics thought was impossible to manifest.  Alexandria is a post-partisan activist who walked the walk on campaign finance reform and bravely posited her authentic self against Crowley – who was the overwhelming favorite and establishment branded Democrat funded by corporate interests. Crowley outspent Ocasio-Cortez 18-1 – but it didn’t matter as the wave of energy at Alexandria’s sails was a force of nature.

The future doesn’t belong to old-world models of polarity and left/right duality. Alexandria is representative of her district (+70% people of color), challenged the deeply embedded status-quo candidate who was never elected (Crowley was appointed) – and proved that when you give voters a reason to engage in the political process – they will respond.

She described her ascent into politics as “an awakening” and actively engaged historical non-voters who felt alienated and unserved by the political system.  Crowley had all the big money; Ocasio-Cortez had the people – and they weren’t all that interested in party-politics flag-waving. They wanted authenticity and bold leadership from a candidate who speaks truth to power and works to correct the planet’s wobble – and they got it with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

We need an energized, active, and joyous populace in order to take on the larger/macro issues – but it often starts w/ the microcosmic work on the ground that galvanizes from the ground-up, via organic community growth and development that addresses the localized problems that we can actively influence – just as Ocasio-Cortez has done.

While there is limitless experience to be embarked upon within the spiritual dimension, there is also a very urgent call for us to contribute our uniqueness and individuality to the collective hue of humanity.  That doesn’t always require us to crack through the ceiling of the universe via astral projection or to spiral through other dimensions in an ayahuasca circle.  Sometimes it can be as simple as ensuring that your community has access to clean drinking water – or safeguarding the basic civil and human rights of our neighbor so that we may build the framework for a prescription of universal rights that enlarge the aura of the body politic.

Many within party politics quibble about the fracturing of the vote that takes place intra-party via contentious primaries, the more efficient strategy would be to facilitate an awakening within the entire electorate, and not just summarily dismissing the non-voting 40% who have (understandably) felt alienated and unserved by institutionalized politics.

Political commentators within Big Media rarely inform, enlighten, or alert the public to civil and human rights abuses. Instead, politics has become a checkerboard of two choices, both of them usually unpalatable.  Just as baseball fans relish the rivalry between the Red Sox and Yankees, fervently pledging allegiance to their “team”, American politics has been framed as a dual rivalry fueled by identity politics: us versus them, red versus blue, which generates a hyper polarization within the electorate.

We are in the midst of a chaotic tornado and are challenged to steer that tornado with sturdy balance, and that tornado cannot be steered with an endless loop of left-right cyclical argumentation.  But what would happen if we put our system in neutral to address the immense imbalance and dysfunction in our world?

“The body’s ability to be alive depends on its ability to acquire charge.  If a seed isn’t centripetal – it can’t suck in first nourishment.  The reason structures like the Stonehenge cause seeds to germinate is electrical.  That is, it’s a centripetal conjugate field.  Your brain — like every centripetal structure — is like two pine cones learning to kiss noses. In physics that’s called phase conjugation and governs self-organization. ~Dan Winter, Golden Mean Ratio

Electrify The Electorate

Looking at the esoteric and exoteric significance and impact of the body politic – we see that it is an extension of the human body and the state/health of the body politic corresponds with the state and health of the human body.  When we step into our power, we can see a correspondence, as-above, so-below resonator between the dimensions – and that resonance can take hold within our immediate reality where it is so desperately needed.

Politics literally means (etymologically) the ability to a make a body polis – which is to say – a coherent plasma field, which is generated from bliss and measurable electro-magnetically. So when the body is engaged in bliss and conscious awakening illuminates the body politic – people are full of bliss with the expansion of universal rights.  Such bliss makes us feel connected and is a critical part of our health as a humanity. We mustn’t be so beat down by the state of our political system such that a conditioned cynicism leads us to snicker anytime a bright-eyed activist like Ocasio-Cortez builds the courage to challenge the status-quo – no matter how small they may seem when measured by a cosmic spectrometer.  Enhance the universal aura; the electro-magnetic output of the Universal Organism – then topple the oligarchy effortlessly.

It’s Almost Halloween! Here’s What Black Cats Actually Symbolize

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Black cats, for most people have been associated with bad luck. The truth is, black cats can symbolize many things, and have throughout history.

  • Reflect On:

    Have you been seeing black cats? Do they have any particular symbolism for you? It is often said, what you truly find meaning in, is where the significance lies.

Cats have had a special bond with humans and have been domesticated since ancient Egyptian times. In fact, they were even regarded as gods in these times and treated with the utmost care and respect. It seems that for those of us who really know cats, we understand that there is something special about these animals, so much so that we too are willing to feed them, scoop up their poop, and let them destroy our furniture… seems like perhaps not much has changed since ancient Egypt after all.

Throughout history, many people have been superstitious about black cats in particular, and will avoid them whenever they see them. If you are thinking this is just a silly superstition and people don’t actually believe that black cats are bad luck, then you should know that they are the least likely to be adopted from an animal shelter. There are stories that they are sometimes tormented, captured and even killed on halloween night.

So, where does this superstition come from? Should we be wary of black cats? If so maybe I’m screwed because I have been the proud owner of my handsome black kitty I call Salem, (I know, how original, right?) for the past 5 years. This also brings up the point of how black cats and witches seem to go hand in hand. So, why is this and what do we need to know about these furry black creatures?

My handsome boy holding my page.

First, Some History

Throughout history black cats have generally been associated with occultism. According to Hebrew and Babylonian folklore, cats are compared to serpents, coiled on the hearth. In ancient Egypt, the act of killing a cat was punishable by death, and when a cat would die it would be mummified followed by the family entering into a period of mourning. Roman cultures considered the cat to be sacred and brought this animal into Europe. The vast majority of countries in Europe consider a black cat crossing one’s path to be bad luck and the church has long since associated black cats with witchcraft.

These animals were also believed to be shapeshifters and that witches were able to transform into them with their spells and do evil things without being noticed. Many people believed that the devil himself would take the form of a black cat and sadly on holy days like Easter, in the Middle Ages, black cats were often hunted down and burned.

Luckily, in some cultures the perception of the black cat began to change and it went from being seen as bad luck to good luck in countries like Scotland who still regard a strange black cat on your porch as a sign of prosperity to come. In England, fishermen’s wives would keep black cats in their homes while their husbands were away in the belief that these animals would prevent danger from occurring to their husbands while they were off at sea.

I often refer to him as my “Halloween Cat.”

Some More Updated Theories

There is no doubt that superstitions regarding black cats are some of the most widely known and popular. One has to wonder what witches really saw in black cats and why they had a relationship with them in the first place, because by now many people realize that witches were not evil, but just more connected to the power of the universe that lies within us all. The powers that be did not want this information getting out, hence the massive crusade against witches and pretty much any intuitive woman during the middle ages. So why did the witches really keep black cats?

According to a website called Witches Lore, a black cat is a good companion to have around because it will double the power of any spell, black cats are witches themselves and are more connected to the mysterious powers of the universe. You can learn everything about magic just from talking to your cat.

Black aside, the cat represents the following attributes, according to spiritanimal.com

  • Patience, waiting for the right moment to react
  • Independance, yet enjoying social connections
  • Spirit of adventure, courage
  • Deep, relaxed connection with self
  • Healing from the inside out
  • Curiosity, exploration of the unknown or the unconscious

“Another way to see the meaning of the cat as a spirit animal or totem is to pay attention to its ability to see in the dark and be at ease when most other animals and humans are not. If the cat shows up in your life as a spirit guide or you have this animal as totem, you may be inclined to start exploring areas in your life or aspects or yourself that you do not know well yet.

When we observe cats, we see that they are characterized by the flexibility and agility. No matter the circumstances, it will always manage to fall back on its feet. By affinity with the cat totem, you may be encouraged to develop your flexibility at many different levels, whether it is in your physical body, mind, emotions, or spirit.

The cat totem is a source of inspiration to renew your perspective and have the courage to act or integrate it into your life. If the cat spirit animal shows up in your life, it may be time to explore new ways to look at things.”

Here’s another interesting point made by the Archives of American Art,

“It’s not all bad for the black cat though. Black cats aboard ships at sea are a longstanding tradition associated with good luck. From pirate ships to naval vessels, cats have been welcomed on board because they keep the rodents away from the ship’s food supply and provide companionship for an isolated crew. Unlike in the United States, where they typically have negative connotations, other nations—like the United Kingdom and Japan—believe that black cats can bring prosperity, bless a marriage, ensure good harvests, and even help bring success to a theater production.” 

Do Cats Show Up In Your Dreams?

Of course some people perceive the presence of cats in their dreams as bad omens, others believe that the cat represents your feminine essence and sensuality. These dreams may be a reminder to let your inner mischievous and mysterious nature shine through. If a black cat shows up, this is a message to pay attention to what your intuition is telling you. The Ancient Egyptians believed that cats could travel between dimensions, so it would not be that strange to see a black cat in your dream with a message for you.

It seems as if there has been an heir of mystery and wonder around black cats since their relationships with humans began. I believe they are just as special as any other cat and my boy, Salem, just happens to be the friendliest cat I’ve ever met, he crosses my path on a regular basis and as far as I know, I’m doing just fine! Perhaps these superstitions are what you make them.

Much Love

Ex USAF Colonel & Boeing Engineer Explains What Really Happened During Apollo 13

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Colonel Ross Dedrickson, a high ranking military man who spent a long service with the Energy Commission between 1950-1958, claims that the problems with Apollo 13 were handled with care by extraterrestrials.

  • Reflect On:

    UFOs are no longer taboo and their existence has been verified via documents, photographs and videos released by dozens of governments. To complement this, we have witness testimony. The common theme is that many crafts are extraterrestrial.

Now that mainstream UFO disclosure has taken place and more information continues to be brought to light, more and more people are opening up to the idea that some of these UFOs, which are tracked on radar, photographed and videotaped, are extraterrestrial in origin.

This belief comes as a result from multiple factors, one being credible witness testimony by hundreds of military personnel from all ranks for decades, as well as other researchers, academics, ex-intelligence agency personnel, astronauts, etc. These testimonies compliment the hard evidence that’s already been collected. The ‘UFO problem’ has been subject to the questions of who, what, why, where and when, the only problem is those questions have been asked and answered by those who work within black budget special access programs, programs that are so sensitive that they’re exempt from standard reporting requirements from Congress, as described in this document.

For the latest updates in mainstream UFO, you can refer to this article which discusses materials that have been collected from these objects, among other things, and for the latest updates regarding mainstream UFO disclosure.

So, have we been lied to for decades? Former NASA Astronaut and Princeton physics professor, Dr. Brian O’Leary (who was recruited by Carl Sagan to teach at Cornell University) have accused Sagan on being involved with covering up this information. He even accused Sagan of fudging evidence regarding the ‘Face on Mars.’ You can see what he said, and read more about that in-depth here.

The very first director of the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), Roscoe H. Hillenkoetter, told the world that there has been an official campaign of ridicule and secrecy to cover up for the fact that UFOs are real, and that some of them are indeed extraterrestrial. He did so to the New York Times in 1960.

With the recent admittance of the existence of UFO’s by multiple countries, lead by the To The Stars Academy in the United States, another factor having some believe they are extraterrestrial, including Louis Elizondo, who used to be a director of one of the UFO study programs within the Pentagon, is the fact that the objects are observed performing maneuvers that defy our laws of physics and aerodynamics.

So far, apart from that statement given on CNN, he has emphasized how their group is purposely steering away from the extraterrestrial question for now and simply focusing on the objects because there are a lot of feelings that come up when discussing this topic.

I will tell you unequivocally that, through the observation, scientific methodologies that were applied to look at this… That these aircraft are displaying characteristics that are not currently within the US inventory nor in any foreign inventory… My personal belief is that there is very compelling evidence that we may not be alone, whatever that means.

Unfortunately, there always seems to be a “threat” narrative from the mainstream…

The secrecy on this subject, as you can imagine, runs very deep. Everything is compartmentalized, and everybody who has experienced or been a part of these programs is aware of that.

Sure, we are seeing mainstream disclosure, but this topic leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. If there is a secret space program, if governments have catalogued multiple species of beings, if there is new technology and new propulsion systems that “utilize the wheel work of nature,” then how does one expect those who control the secrecy around this subject to simply disclose it? We should have had mass transparency from the very beginning, but this world of secrecy has developed so much that it’s nearly impossible to get the entire truth out about multiple things within this subject. Technology, extraterrestrial intelligence, and all of the questions you can think of have been the subject of inquiry for years, and we’ve been left completely in the dark.

Disclosure will lead to corporate collapses, like the oil industry. It would lead to lawsuits from various private military contractors, the list is huge and the implications of the disclosure are just the same.

The largest benefit could most possibly be the impact on human consciousness and our awareness of metaphysical realms, non-material science would no doubt get a big boost.

Whether this was done to protect corporate/government interests or simply because it was ‘too big’ for the human mind to comprehend and accept is up in the air, but it seems to be a good mix of both.

Apollo 13

When it comes to astronauts, it’s amusing how a select few receive media attention, and it’s usually the ones that attempt to debunk the ufo/extraterrestrial phenomena. On the other hand, we have a plethora of astronauts, perhaps even more than 50 percent of them in the United States, who have told the world that they know for a fact that UFOs are real, and that some of them are piloted by beings from somewhere else in the universe. Why is it that these astronauts don’t receive much attention, why are their words not taken as credible, and why are astronauts who debunk these claims instantaneously believed? Definitely strange to say the least.

The video below, however, is not from an astronaut, but a testimony from Colonel Ross Dedrickson. His testimony, as well as obituary states:

He was assigned to the US Atomic Energy Commission. A long service with the Energy Commission between 1950-1958 included, contract administration duties at Nevada test sites, Pacific Nuclear Test Area west of Hawaii, nuclear weapon manufacturing and quality assurance in Albuquerque, and inspection of nuclear and non-nuclear facilities throughout the country. He served with the 5th Air Force in Japan and later as a ranking Colonel, Officer in Charge of the Pacific Unified Command (TM)s alternate “command and control center” in Hawaii. In 1962, he was transferred and served as Deputy for Material for the 832 Air Division at Canon Air Force Base, Clovis, New Mexico. He retired from the USAF in 1964.

Did we go to the Moon? We’ve written a number of articles explaining why we feel that yes, we did, but the official story we’re told about the Moon doesn’t really add up. Sources for these claims come from within the industry, as well, from military personnel to former NASA employees, intelligence officers etc. Colonel Dedrickson is a great example.

Made popular by Hollywood, Apollo 13 became known as the journey to the Moon that experienced technical difficulties, making it difficult and near impossible for the craft to return home. According to Dedrickson:

A spacecraft went to the rescue of Apollo 13, and they accompanied Apollo 13 on their voyage around the Moon back to Earth. And on two occasions they thought they might have to transfer the crew to their spacecraft, but they saw them safely back to Earth.

He gives a lot more information in the interview below, so take from it what you will. I published an article prior to this one about his statements claiming extraterrestrials would not allow the detonation of nuclear weapons on the Moon for our own scientific measurements, those comments are also from this interview.

The Takeaway

The takeaway message is that we are not alone and that this topic is moving outside of the debatable realm every single year. The implications of ET disclosure are huge, it really changes everything and brings up a lot of questions. Our civilization should be working in complete transparency, secrecy is only for those with selfish interests to protect. But the world is a mess, and this is and may have to be a process over many years. The metaphysical and spiritual implications, among others like technological, are what awaits us if we can make the correct changes within and become a more peaceful people.

The US Military Is Now Recruiting Soldiers Who Were Born After 9/11

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The US Military is now able to enlist soldiers who were not alive when 9/11 happened, but it only seems to be exacerbating the problems the military is having in attracting recruits, despite having increased incentives and lowering standards.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it possible that our awakening to the truth about war and the military is the main reason that recruitment is becoming so difficult for the US military?

Indeed, that title is worth repeating. The US military is now recruiting soldiers who were born after 9/11. And among other things, they are being recruited to fight in the ongoing war in Afghanistan, the first of several wars that the US government used 9/11 to justify. Still going on after almost 18 years? I guess the US government, or should I say the Deep State behind the US government, hasn’t completed their ‘business’ there. That now-famous line in the Neo-Conservative handbook ‘The Project For A New American Century’ is perhaps worth bringing back here. In speaking about a ‘transformation’ in the Middle East that needs to take place in order for the US to maintain and even enhance their supremacy in the region, the manifesto notes that,

“Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event–like a new Pearl Harbor.”–The Project For A New American Century

Of course creating a new Pearl Harbor was one of the major intentions of 9/11–not only to foment public opinion in favor of going to war against the bad guys in the Middle East (except Saudi Arabia, of course, the only Middle Eastern nation actually tied to 9/11), but also to build enthusiasm for more army recruits to sign up and die overseas for the global elite, err, I mean, their ‘country.’

And were they successful with this ploy? I guess it depends on who you talk to, and what would be meant by ‘successful’. The wars launched on behalf of 9/11 were resisted from the get-go by people who were already awake to what was going on underneath the cover of geopolitical rhetoric. And many more awakened when the inconsistencies in the 9/11 story and false premises like ‘weapons of mass destruction’ became part of global discourse and the subject of many documentaries.

But maybe the global elite still consider it a success. After all, they were able to kill a lot of people and make a lot of money, while gaining more of a military presence in the region from which to better bully countries. But have they now backed themselves into a corner, relying on a narrative that is no longer sustainable?

Recruitment Issues

Certainly, 18 years later, this same war in Afghanistan is not inspiring the same recruitment fervor, as this Buzzfeed article notes:

advertisement - learn more

As the war in Afghanistan enters its 18th year and the US Army falls thousands short of its recruiting goals, the Pentagon is recognizing it has to do something different to recruit an age group that does not remember 9/11 and for whom the “war on terror” has been background noise their entire lives. This includes rethinking some of its traditional military PR, which has unintentionally turned the corner from inspiring to morbid by highlighting that some of the young people enlisting today are taking over the same tasks in the very same places their parents fought almost a generation ago.

This must be disconcerting for second-generation recruits: while they are being told that their efforts to fight overseas will ‘make a difference,’ they have first-hand knowledge that in addition to all the death, dismemberment and PTSD they must have heard about, and in some cases directly witnessed, that the time their elders have spent in Afghanistan over the past 18 years has not made the situation any better. It has not improved the United States, the country that was invaded, or global security in general.

So that being the case, it might surprise you to know that, according to statistical research done for the year 2015, recruits who already had a relative in the military represented a full 83% of all recruits in that calendar year.

The Rise Of The Warrior Caste?

The army reasons that there is a rise in the ‘warrior caste,’ which comprises the groups of American families that have the ethic and patriotism to ‘bear the burden of a nation at war.’ But is this an accurate assessment? Does this notion not stem from a foregone belief that most Americans still endorse the wars that have been fought and continue to be fought since 9/11, but they are simply leaving it to other citizens to go through the rigors of ‘fighting the good fight’?

In many cases I actually believe that the propensity of family members continuing to join the army stems not from a generational patriotism as such, but from the greater difficulty they may have in shifting their perception about the true underlying motivations behind military aggression.  They would need to acknowledge the fact that not only they but their respected older family members have all been duped by a false narrative. I assume many must continue to cling to the threadbare notion that the military is going around the world invading countries to bring freedom, foster true democracy and make the world safer for American citizens–unless of course they were only in this killing game for the money.

And speaking of money, the military actually has been increasing its offer of financial compensation in order to reach its quotas, as well as lowering its standards for a new recruit’s history of mental illness, according to this USA Today article:

People with a history of “self-mutilation,” bipolar disorder, depression and drug and alcohol abuse can now seek waivers to join the Army under an unannounced policy enacted in August, according to documents obtained by USA TODAY.

‘Nuff said.

The Trust Gap

Would it be a surprise to the top brass in the military that recruitment is down simply because most people no longer trust the military or the U.S. government? Or that fewer people are willing to go overseas and kill people for no apparent reason?

People are waking up, getting smarter, despite Deep State efforts to keep people dumbed-down. There is a trust gap between citizens and the military, and it’s getting wider by the day. What would help recruitment, Military PR department? The truth. Yes, we can handle the truth. If people had real reasons to believe that they were actually fighting for individual rights and freedoms, and a better life for their children, the recruitment lineup might be a little longer. If they believed that the military was really about the defense of traditional American values, then a career in the military might make more sense to them.

But any argument about truly using the military for defensive purposes would naturally imply that there is not such a need for America to have military presence around the globe. Then the notion popularized by Ron Paul and others that we should close our bases in other countries and bring all our troops home to focus on defending our borders would become the rule of the day. And then the tremendous amount of money spent on the military, if not being outright reduced and diverted to matters of domestic importance, could be used to support great projects at home designed to improve the lives of American citizens.

Of course, none of this can happen, until the military is wrested away from the Deep State and put into the hands of ‘We the People’, to serve OUR best interests, as the Constitution meant it to be. In the meantime, let’s just enjoy the goods news that a swiftly decreasing number of young people in America are willing to go overseas to disrupt and control other nations by force.

The Takeaway

The power of the Deep State is only as great as the extent to which people are willing to continue to take up arms and fight for causes that we are clearly seeing are unjust. Many in the past were brainwashed into thinking that they were fighting in wars for important values and principles, like ‘freedom’ and ‘democracy.’ As we awaken to the truth of our history, and our unwitting complicity in unnecessary conflict in the world, the way of global peace and unity will become clear to us.
