Thic Nhat Hanh: It is Not Correct to Suppress Violence with Violence…We Are Not Free to Destroy

peacedoveearthToday’s the UN-established Day of International Peace, and, although I’ve lost all faith in the UN–thanks to the Global Totalitarianism being unleashed everyday on us by their (new world order) Agenda 21/Agenda 2030, which I sincerely hope all nations of the world, including the slowly-awakening USA will vehemently oppose, expose, and fully prevent and tear down–it really is the Brave New World of 1984 and Minority Report and every other dystopian vision you can name combined–I welcome this moment in what promises to be a momentous week (being the week of the Pope’s visit to the US) to focus on Peace.

Because Thic Nhat Hanh (Vietnamese Buddhist monk, founder of the mindfulness retreat Plum Village, author of several books including Peace Is Every Step) so fully embodies peace to me, I wanted to post something by him–here is a brief and inspiring video of Thich Nhat Hanh’s visit to Congress in 2003, during the Iraq war, and a little on his background, life, and continuous engagement with peace:

“It is not correct to suppress violence with violence….We are not free to destroy.”

Sadly I learn from the Plum Village website that Thic Nhat Hanh is currently befreerecovering from a stroke which also affected his speaking, one of his most powerful gifts, I send my wishes for a full recovery his way. Please look on Youtube for his videos and listen to his talks, they are powerful, moving, very inspiring. I tend to carry little books by him and other Buddhist and spiritual writers around, to read while driving or waiting anywhere, this one is especially powerful–a talk given to inmates at a penitentiary, especially powerful in its advice on how to go beyond anger, go within, transform oneself through mindful practice, and so effect change in one’s world–words to read and re-read: Be Free Where You Are.

In Our Quantum Universe, Your Individual Consciousness Counts — & Makes a Huge Difference/We Could Consciously Visualize Into Reality No Martial Law. No New-World-Order. No War. An End to Mass Control Tech.

flower1The Zero Point Field

In our connected universe, according to quantum physicist Nassim Haramein, who is interviewed here by Consciousness and Spirit interviewer Lilou Mace, all matter, including our seemingly very material bodies, is composed of 99.99% space, and in that space can be found infinite amounts of very real energy.We are all swimming inside this fluid, vibratory sea of energy; all matter, at its most microscopic level, well, really, beyond, at the quantum level, is in a continuous state of vibratory possibility.

Our thinking and consciousness is a part of this field for our thoughts too are vibratory; as Lynne Taggart, science reporter, puts it in her book The Field, various scientists whose work she researched concluded that “human perception occurred because of interactions between the subatomic particles of our brains and the quantum energy sea. We literally resonated with our world.”

Everything each of us thinks contributes to this Zero Point Field, this vast web of collective consciousness and energy underlying our visible reality and our current-day experience. Your consciousness–your fears and your dreams, your expanding awareness of what’s really going on here on Earth, informs this field, as does mine, and everyone else’s.

Zero Point Energy

The discovery of immense amounts of energy available in the smallest volumes of space too suggest that we are on the brink of an energy revolution, says Nassim Haramein. We don’t have to buy into still-operative stories that our world cannot support all of us, that we don’t have the resources or energy to take care of all our 9-billion strong needs. We are literally at a turning-point for humanity–for today this information (on free energy or zero point energy) is out there, even as dark forces–governments, corporations, energy companies–seek to suppress it and keep us as a people from evolving outward creatively into our own expanding destiny, but seeking to impose from top-down rather, all sorts of totalitarian controls and repressions, to contain us, and to contain the reality/or the illusion of reality we live in.

Nassim Haramein, Interviewed by Lilou Mace, The Unified Field

The Heart as Link

In this fascinating conversation (the latter half), he explains how the human heart, with its vast electromagnetic field–larger than the brain’s–offers a link with the vast sea of energy/consciousness we are all immersed in. In coherent states, arrived at through meditation or calming activity, the heart’s radiations outward have greater power, greater reach. We become able to influence our world–the morphogenetic field–through being centered, going inward, entering “the singularity” of being centered — and sending our dreams, desires, intentions out into the universe from that powerfully centered state.

Yogis who meditate deeply tell us the same thing, that meditating more and meditating more deeply enhances our intrinsic abilities to influence our world with our seeded (right-action) intentions, hopes, thoughts, actions. This is referred to as “spiritual power” — meditating opens you out into spiritual space, and a space where you can influence events, the more you are able to resonate with all-that-is/the universe through calm.

Fear Versus Claiming Your Power and Holding Positive Intention for the World

Many analysts today observe how we are constantly being pushed into states of fear, both through manufactured false-flag events and acts of war, and all sorts of covert ops, intrusive surveillance, sudden “pandemics” and other such.  Here in the US the militarizing of our police, the arming of various Federal agencies, Jade Helm, the other military drills, news of the FEMA camps, the documents spelling out martial law and “Internment/Settlement” operations, and the steady encroachment via legislation that gives more and more of our rights and liberties to an increasingly cold and corporate state are all part of this scenario.

But we also know people are waking up, people are beginning to claim their sovereignty. People are beginning to search fervently for Truth in everything–just Google “Truth media” or “Truth movement/in media” for a glimpse of the plethora of voices now out there, seeking to report the Truth, as opposed to the Lies mainstream and establishment media have been dishing up for decades.

The more that each of us does to lay claim to our own power, the more chance we have of defeating this global-totalitarian-governance scheme/a dressed-up Brave New World the UN and the globalists are trying hard to cordon us into.

Our future is not set in stone. We live in a quantum world. We could consciously work–as individuals, in solitude, by ourselves–to breathe our own harmonious, peaceful intentions for the world into the world. So why don’t we?

Switching Your Vision From Negative to Positive

All it would take is a concerted effort. Instead of waiting hopelessly for martial law and mass robotization as many online commenters seem to be inclined to do, I suggest we lay hold of our personal power instead and start working instead to focus on our personal visions of a world in which: mass arrests take care of the criminal coterie currently suppressing us–see this article from Carl Herman at Washington’s Blog suggesting the great need for this, globally; the end of all talk of martial law; a movement toward massive truth and whistleblowing from our Military and Intel agencies; an end to all dirty and covert ops repressing humanity; an end to all chem trails, aerosols, nanotech, mind control weaponry being used on us; an end to the petty yet powerfully destructive pursuit of war; a dissolving of all our weapons-manufacturing industries; a conversion instead to peaceful and creative industry; and any manner of local and creative communal living including helpful forms of self-governing and co-operative governing that we can dream up.

I had the oddest experience this morning during meditation when I felt distinctly as if I were receiving confirmation from a lit-up universe that all I/we needed to do was mentally and relentlessly oppose martial law and the NWO, and they would not happen. Maybe all of us can swing this together.  Please join me in a daily meditation — any time of day, your choice — in sending out peaceful intentions into the universe for the best possible world ahead: No war. No martial law, anywhere. No New World Order (newly disguised as Sustainable Development). An end to all mass control technologies currently being used against us.

Let’s start to envision a more positive world ahead, in absolute faith that our visions will be supported by All-that-is, a universe inclined toward light, life, peace, creative expansion, harmony, evolution.

In Our Quantum Universe, Your Individual Consciousness Counts–And Makes a Huge Difference

Your Cool Calm Centered Intention Can Help Shape Our Collective Reality

Three Things Each of Us Can Do Everyday to Effect a Positive Future

In Our Quantum Universe, Your Individual Consciousness Counts — & Makes a Huge Difference/Three Things Each of Us Can Do Everyday to Effect a Positive Future

flower1In the face of all the disturbing news we are surrounded by everyday, and the talk of economic collapse, stock market crashes, dollar collapses, martial law, massive depopulation, earth changes and other such flying around the Net I wanted to add my voice to the many others out there counseling calm, focus, and continued action. (I hope to create an ongoing series under this header–In Our Quantum Universe, Your Individual Consciousness Counts–And Makes a Huge Difference–and hope to add in short posts as I can; all posts will be filed under Consciousness.)

There’s no shortage to drama on the Internet, no shortage to terror in world news, no shortage to stirring-up-fear on all sides. But, as meditators, shamans, consciousness gurus, and lately, quantum physicists find, we are most effective in all our intentions, actions, and dreams when we are calm, focused, in control of our inner space, while continuing to be aware, be informed, to expand our knowledge, and to take decisive, inspirited, “right” action.

Three things each of us can do today to counter the madness in the news everyday while also staying engaged and taking action, and applying our powerful individual consciousness toward the creation of a brilliant and beautiful, positive future for humanity are:

Hold Fast to a Positive Outcome: I’m not suggesting be unrealistic and Pollyanna-ish, I’m suggesting getting past the doom and gloom and fear scenarios and holding fast internally to the hope of a brilliant positive future. Most of us who do engage in action of any kind in any sphere know for a certainty life is not about negativity, dejection, depression, and death; life is about moving forward, being positive, being engaged, and carrying hope like a beacon through our every hour and every day. Whatever your trials, and whatever the state of the world, switching from anticipation of a bleak future to anticipation of a brilliant, golden, positive future automatically changes your thoughts, your state of mind, your attitude, your abilities to a bright, radiant, can-do space which–as per the latest from quantum physics–ripples outward magically from your mind and being to and through the unifield field connecting all of us, and makes the prospect of a brilliant, positive future for all of us much more possible. Your thoughts count. Your attitude counts.

Now, more than ever, it’s vital for us to stay positive, for there are dark forces all around us seeking otherwise. You and I, with our small individual selves, can achieve large, powerful change by just staying positive, despite Everything being thrown at us.

Take Time for Your Joy: Much in the light of the above orientation, of staying positive, but really, going much deeper, and accessing a space of powerful spiritual transformation, for both yourself and the whole world we commonly share, is the great power of what the Hindu yogis call “bliss” and what we know as joy. Each of us takes joy in some special activity or activities–whether it’s gardening, or cooking, or writing, or meditating, or sketching, or painting, or singing, or making music, or reading, or biking, or sailing or whatever–and now, more than ever, while it seems the world’s going to hell in a handbasket all around us, paradoxically, it is absolutely the right time for us to stay focused on our cool calm centers of serenity and joy by engaging Everyday, even if only for a few minutes, in these activities that calm us, that anchor us, that give us joy.

When you take some time everyday to “follow your bliss” as Joseph Campbell said, you are centering yourself in yourself, in your joy, in the particular field of being that is wholly and utterly You, you are losing yourself in the dream and creation of You, you are slowly and surely becoming more and more of your real true self. And the rippling-outward consciousness of that real true self, from that centered, calm, and joyous state, which is a “coherent state”–again, from what meditators and quantum physicists tell us–has a tremendous potential to affect our unified field and draw it outward and upward toward a brilliant, positive future.

Stay Centered, Stay Engaged, and Take Positive Action: It’s important to note that disengaging from reality is not the key here. Staying centered in our joy, in our You-ness, in whatever makes us calm, serene, and joyful, we need to simultaneously open our minds and stay engaged, stay informed, keep seeking out knowledge, learn what is going on around us, learn what is being hidden from us, learn how we are all being and have been supremely deceived by various powers of commerce and government, learn how we are being and have been deceived into living in deathly states of fear–of terrorism, of surveillance, of government–and into thereby giving our power of individual thinking and consciousness away. We need to learn in order to live in open-eyed clarity and in order to take clear and positive action.

Your joy is your center, your anchor. Staying centered in who you are, you are laying claim to the brilliance and beauty of your individual being, you are laying claim to the power and sovereignty of your individual self.

You and I have tremendous power just as an individual. This is another one of those secrets suppressed and hidden from us by our education and by our worship of what is now becoming an antiquated science. This is the moment to take our power back. Claim your power as your own separate individual self. Centering yourself in yourself, stay engaged, stay aware–and take action.

Whether it’s signing a petition, writing a letter to an editor, or speaking out in your community against any kind of injustice, or just saving a moth that falls into your glass or feeding the local birds and squirrels or rescuing a dog or cat, let your centered-self guide you to positive action. We are existing all over the world in a state of corporate and government oppression, if we do not take action on all fronts, each of us, step by step, on all sides, we might as well keel over and say hello to the not-so-new world (dis) order we are being propelled toward.

It is Time for each of us to take action, and the fact is, every single one of us, taking centered, positive action will Inevitably affect our unified field and tilt us toward a brilliant, positive future. So please, consult your soul and your center and center yourself in your joy, but everyday, in some little individual way, please take positive action, knowing that even these, our smallest actions, do have an effect, and Will influence our future.

(For those of you politically and legally inclined, please do follow the West Virginia story and take action there.)

Here is the first post under this header (Under Consciousness): Your Cool Calm Centered Intention Can Help Shape Our Collective Reality

In Our Quantum Universe, Your Individual Consciousness Counts — & Makes a Huge Difference

flower1This is a multi-faceted subject that I am just beginning to explore seriously, that many in the Consciousness movement of course are well-informed about — how can our tiny individual awarenesses make a difference? And what good does Consciousness do really? Does just Knowing about the horrors going on around us–raining down on us from the skies, being pumped into our water, killing our bees, destroying our trees, being aimed at us invisibly in the form of covert EMR/ultrasonic weapons and silent HAARP transmissions, the drones, the wars, the pollution, the  corruption–make a difference?

And do our tiny actions–signing a petition, forwarding a tweet, posting a poem, sitting down to meditate for 10 minutes, inhaling the scent of a rose, losing ourselves in creating art or poetry or fiction (instead of caving in to despair at what we are seeing around us or experiencing ourselves)–count?

(What I’m finding out is promising–your voice, each one of our voices, can, do, and will make a huge difference, in the smallest and most astonishing of ways, in our common collective goal to turn back the destruction, dial back the horrors, dissolve evil systems of power currently rampant, and co-create a new, eco-harmonious reality for All of us on the planet, not just a few.)

Here is a first post on these subjects, to be explored further in these pages (Under Consciousness): Your Cool Calm Centered Intention Can Help Shape Our Collective Reality

Jade Helm 2015 Update: Contrived Confusion…? Let’s Cut Through the Chaos

So: At this point, I suspect one is meant to be confused by Jade Helm, as well as  fearful, and paralyzed. Once more, the analyses in alternative media range from Jade Helm as major PsyOp–designed to induce fear–through Definite Martial Law Ahead to Managing Impending Mass Civil Unrest to all sorts of possibilities such as Flushing Negative ETs/Aliens Out of Deep Underground Military Bases, to Capturing the Cabal, to Chasing Demons To be Released Shortly By CERN’s Machinations with High-Speed Particles and Opening Dimensions to Hell.

You might laugh your head off, or you might freak out, based on your orientation here to what’s going on in our completely crazed world currently.

See this commentary by Joachim Hagopian (excerpted here): “These days it is becoming increasingly more difficult to ferret out the truth, be it mainstream or independent media sources. A major strategy the federal government commonly uses to discredit alternative media is planting disinformation within its ranks. Government moles have infiltrated the so called independent online media, intentionally muddying the waters so murky as to obscure the facts. When alternative sites cry out that the sky is falling and then it doesn’t, it conditions consumers of independent media to no longer believe them either, thus rendering all independent news outlets “whacked out conspiracy theorists.” Through various PSYOPS the US intelligence community has targeted both social media as well as alternative news media as viably effective outlets to spread further disinformation and propaganda lies. Of course this malicious agenda of the US government purposely keeping Americans uninformed in the dark, too dumbed down and confused, not knowing who or what to believe or trust as the actual truth, is exactly where the feds want us.”

But let’s Not give in to fear. Let’s Not give in to confusion. Fear is the ruling elite’s primary weapon against humanity. Fear really means: you’re handing your rational, thinking power over to the fear-pushers.

But let’s not, like Corporate Mainstream Media, completely dismiss what’s happening here either. Because something is definitely happening.

Military Presence

Jade Helm--and Robin Sage, and all the other drills–is definitely about the military getting right in our midst.

What for?

1. There are reports out currently stating the Pentagon has admitted to expecting “mass civil unrest.”

This has echoes of the famous New World Order Delphic Problem, Reaction, Solution since military documents for the past 15 years if not earlier mention “mass civil unrest” as a contingency they are preparing for.

Remember, they’re propagandizing about a Revolution in Military Affairs currently, which is about  switching to Information Operations and Unconventional Warfare and Electronic Warfare (mind-reading, nanotech, neurotech, remote neural control, and full-spectrum surveillance)–and Jade Helm is all about Special Ops forces engaging in Unconventional Warfare–which, from their documents, involves Active Deception and PsyOps).

See also this Mintpress News article, reminding us the Military is studying non-violent activists, much in the mode of them being “potential terrorists”: US Isn’t Invading Texas, but Pentagon Is Prepping for Mass Civil Unrest

So we have to ask: are they planning to first Create Mass Civil Unrest?

(Much like Violence has been created at recent protests–Ferguson, Baltimore..?)

(And let us not forget that these terrible racial/police crimes may also be being manipulated currently–so it’s not racism per se, it’s Promoted Racism, Promoted Militarism, Promoted Police Aggression–it’s the old, old Anglo Imperialist Divide and Rule. And here with an extra flourish: the call to remove states’ rights and federalize the police, as in this call from Rev. Al Sharpton)

Can Anyone see the Mass of sleeping Americans waking up to throw bottles at police, (or even marching en masse)–for any reason? No, we Americans like to do what police ask us to do. Generally. We’ve been trained to Respect the Badge here in the US (Land of the Freely Meek).

This is why Citizen Snitch and Harass networks currently operative all over the US (see Chris Hedges’ article, A Nation of Snitches) can operate at all–neighborhoods and communities are easily deceived by fraudulent actions of Intel agencies/Local Law Enforcement into persecuting–tracking/surveilling/targeting other American citizens in the name of “national security.”

So: what impending event is likely to create Mass Civil Unrest among us?

2. Lots of people have realistic expectations we’re facing a major and imminent economic collapse. This post relaying updates from Drake, posted at Starship Earth suggests the same: the military is here to “keep the peace” (via forceful internment of protesters) once our bank accounts are frozen.

Which latter possibility is not implausible, given the infatuation with Austerity (grabbing people’s pension funds/retirement accounts/bank accounts) and “structural reform” that central banks practice, as evident recently in Greece.

Although Karen Hudes tells us the transition from a fiat currency (the Federal Reserve note, our current US dollar, backed by nothing) to a gold-backed US Treasury note could be peaceful, an option the Feds are not going for, apparently.

Maybe if our bank accounts are frozen this summer, we might want to swarm out into the streets? (Really hard to imagine currently, since America is fast asleep.)

But financial collapse May just be the turning-point being planned.

See this article by Shadow of Truth: SoT – Eric Dubin: The New World Order, Economic Collapse and Jade Helm  15

3. All that stuff about internments, FEMA camps, etc. which comes from military documents continues to be speculated about.

This article from Intellihub ( a good site for updates on Jade Helm) with videos from various sources covers actual drills already engaged in by Marines, where protesters are subdued and carted off or fenced in. Take a moment to watch the videos, they’re not reassuring.  Jade Helm: Marines Train for Internment of Citizens Under Martial Law

These videos from Level9News on Youtube are informative:

Level9News: Jade Helm: Mastering the Human Domain: 1033 and Executive Order 13684

Level9News: Robin Sage is Jade Helm for Eastern US

This video from Resurrecting the Republic and Next News Network covers a lot:

Jade Helm 15 Completely Exposed, Biometric Data Gathering, Conditioning for US Police Force

4. There are global drills ongoing or announced. (Hence also the speculations about CERN–just search on Youtube.)

Lisa Haven’s video: World Armies Preparing for Armageddon? Jade Helm Copycat Drills Now Global. It’s Here!

5. Larger than Jade Helm is the Concept behind it. Dahboo777 spells out what he discovered in the Military document ARSOF Operating Concept 2022 which suggests that Jade Helm is mere precursor to what’s to come–essentially a visioning of “non-state actors” in the Continental United States being the ultimate Adversary, no longer nation-states but people and groups who are able to gain influence globally across borders, this to include activists and “empowered individuals.”

Deterrence operations to be used against them include Electronic Warfare and stealth technologies–but “Targeted Individuals” currently being subject to asymmetric warfare and covert assaults with radiation neuroweapons are evidence of this evil going on already among us.

Here’s the video:

Bigger than Jade Helm: ARSOF Operating Concept 2022, Borders to be Erased

6. There are rumors of a final UN takeover, and a Post-2015 agenda being implemented. This moment, in September, just before the fourth Blood Moon, when the Pope visits the US, and actually addresses Congress, is seen as the intended Turning-Point in the transformation of America from once-free to completely-enslaved. Project Blue Beam — beamed holograms of various Gods or alien spaceships — which people say may be rolled out — is posited as an actual (secret) military program, headed our way shortly. There are also rumors about asteroids, a mass-destruction climate event, etc. (Exactly as in the movie Deep Impact.)

Note: The UN does have a Post-2015 Agenda–See Anthony Watts’ article: The UN Climate End Game, and Global Warming, sorry is it Climate Change now…? is part of that platform.

See Michael Snyder’s article: In September, The UN Launches A Major Sustainable Development Agenda For The Entire Planet

And for some commentary which includes ETs and ET intervention:

See Alfred Webre’s articles, the first including Renee M’s videos on the 9/23/2015 meme hidden in Hollywood movies–

A global Extinction Level false flag event is underway under the Meme “September 23, 2015” lasting until Oct. 11-12, 2016, challenging the positive timeline

September 22-28, 2015 Jade Helm/Yom Kippur False Flag: BBC broadcasts “End Days” infomercial as ET fleet & Lightworkers prepare to take down Matrix

7. We don’t know the real truth about ETs. The truth has been hidden. So, it’s hard to tell what may be afoot currently with ETs, if anything at all. But there are a few speculations it’s worth being aware of. Many researchers and observers and analysts tell us we’re right in the middle of/very close to Disclosure, and that Disclosure has and will have a direct impact on every aspect of our lives, including Jade Helm.

See this recent article and interview by Dr. Michael Salla, interviewing Corey Goode:

Extraterrestrial alliance helps secret space program overcome opposition to full disclosure

Jade Helm Secrecy

Whatever is actually going on, isn’t it odd that we have no real information from our Government–and even if we did, we’d find it hard-pressed to believe them? What can any of us do in such a peculiar situation?

What One Can Do

One, we could stay aware, stay informed, scour the news–both alternative and underground–use our own judgment as to what to do.

Two, let’s not give in to fear. There’s a lot here that suggests we’re being played, at many levels. Fear is paralyzing and negative. Let’s not be manipulated.

Three, let’s speak out in any forum we find comfortable, from our own analysis, whether a letter to the editor of our local newspaper, or in a city council meeting. Ask why we need the military in our midst. There are some public options available, such as this Counter Jade Helm website for civilians to report news and video–but check them out for yourself, see if they seem authentic to you.

Four, watch this wonderful film once more, 2012 Crossing Over: A New Beginning--it’s all about how we’re right on the cusp of transitioning to a golden age, and how we are being held back by entrenched corporate powers, and how it’s not fear but Love and Unity Consciousness that will help us walk through these very uncertain and often seemingly dark times.

Five, we could do what we love, stay in Alpha consciousness, send our loving-kindness, as the Buddhist monks tell us, all through the universe every day. Through our thoughts, our calm, our stability, our tranquility, we could beat this attempt to drag us down into a fearful and victimized state.

We’re not victims. We’re creators. Let’s focus on what we Can do. On what we love and who we love. Let’s spread our own powerful light, each in our own way. Let’s create a future together of tranquility and harmony. If all life is probability, it’s up to us to make sure a peaceful and positive timeline unfolds–for all of us.

Which means really, we should step up in some way today and Act–each and every one of us.

Celebrate Chinese New Year, Malcolm X/Speak Out Against War, the Patriot Act, Endless Spying, the TPP

News & Views

It’s Chinese New Year–either today or on Feb 21–according to various sources–which latter is also Malcolm X’s birthday.

Chris Hedges has an article on Malcolm X and his vision for the end of capitalism, his life, his views on truth and freedom at Black Agenda Report (originally at TruthDig): Malcolm X was Right About America

Adam Curtis has a (few minutes long) short film looking back at 2014, worth revisiting now in February, at the cusp of a New Year, on Non-Linear Warfare: A New System of Political Control, all about “contradictory stories” fed to us so no coherent narrative of protest can form.

Electronic Frontier Fund‘s Year in Review, by Nadia Kayyali and Mark Rumold, all about NSA Spying and about EFF’s fight to bring secrets to light:What We Learned About NSA Spying in 2014…

Here’s a peek into the year ahead through the lens of astrology–wasn’t it the Catholic Church which stripped astrology from astronomy sometime in the Middle Ages (and yet the Pope’s hat has symbols from astrology on it) from Simon Vorster at Wake Up World–and it’s reassuring and rejuvenating–Yes, it’s the Year of the Sheep! 2015 in Astrology: The Year of Manifestation

Happy New Year! Let’s hope this is indeed the year the Sheep rise. Change in the world depends on us. Every action we take makes a ripple in the universe. Let’s make those ripples count…

Act Now to End the Patriot Act, Stop Mass Surveillance, End Spying

This from Defending Dissent, drop in at the link below to send a letter: The USA PATRIOT Act granted the government powerful new spying capabilities that have grown out of control—but Section 215, the provision that the FBI and NSA have been using to collect the phone records of millions of innocent people, expires on June 1.

This is an important opportunity for us to demand reform.

Tell Congress: it’s time to end out-of-control spying. Do not reauthorize Section 215!

Rise Up Against War & EverMore War

A whole coalition of anti-war groups are joining together to hold a No-War intervention in DC this spring. The Soapbox People’s Network has the scoop:

““Spring Rising” is four days of creative resistance; theater, teach-ins; rallies and marches marking the anniversary of the United States’ “shock and awe” attack on Iraq and its invasion and occupation in a completely illegitimate, immoral war.  Together we will use this time to oppose the plans and calls for growing military intervention.

As we send this invitation to you the Congress is calling for more war. The President has just told us a new global “war on terror” may be unlimited in space and time.

  • Are you, like us, stunned and enraged by more war on the world?
  • Did you or your organization join in the protests against police violence and murder, because Black Lives Matter?
  • Are you with the Dreamers working for rights for all people to live without fear?
  • Are you one of the many who have dropped everything to protest the global destruction of the environment because of our dependence on fossil fuels which is also a reason for our wars?
  • Are you agonized over the ongoing U.S. military support for Israel, the recent killing of 2,000 Arab men, women, and children last summer in Gaza?
  • Are you furious about the killing and terrorizing of Muslims in the U.S?

Then, join us! Your participation in Spring Rising is urgently needed now to organize protests, participate in teach-ins and to put your art and performance on mass display. Together we can create the vibrant resistance needed to show that terrorizing the world is not in our interest and “not in our name.”” Click Cindy Sheehan’s site link here for more.

Speak out against the TPP

Currently, the White House is sending around an email & video lauding the TPP as “progressive” and emblematic of “Trade in the Twenty-First Century” & crucial in efforts to boost small businesses in America which export and trade worldwide. However, Public Citizen informs us otherwise:

“The Obama administration also has used this sales pitch, often on the basis that the majority of U.S. exporters are small and medium enterprises (SMEs). But that fuzzy logic ignores the fact that 99.7 percent of all U.S. firms qualify as SMEs — while only 3 percent of those are exporters.*

This means that even if the TPP actually were to succeed in boosting exports — which similar pacts have not done — it is large corporations that would disproportionately benefit, not small businesses.”

Let’s not forget the TPP is being conducted In Secret, In Secrecy. Attempts are being made to pass laws In Secret. Only 500 corporate representatives from corporations worldwide are in on it. Not America’s small businesses. Not everyday Americans. The broad scope of TPP is known, but the exact rules being made are being made in secret. Why on earth would any of us ask our Congress representatives to vote on something we don’t know anything–or enough–about? That alone should stop us in our tracks.

Once more, several groups are calling on us to call our members of Congress to make sure they know US citizens are not interested in a secret deal which promises big corporations carte blanche both here domestically in the US and worldwide, and threatens to destroy the autonomy of local and state governments, in addition to governments worldwide, send More American jobs abroad, stifle citizen expression, and gag journalists, whistleblowers, and activists, while stealing natural resources and foisting monopolies on us. Check in here at Public Citizen or MoveOn or Electronic Frontier Fund or Friends of the Earth or all of them, to send letters online automatically to your Congressperson, call, or sign a petition. If TPP is fast-tracked, we might as well ask Congress to vacate. Or vacation. Indefinitely.

Raise Your Voice Against War in Syria and Iraq/NIH Funded Torture/US Navy Sonar Testing/Censorship of Journalists

Still vital for the rest of us with conscience to speak out against a new war in Syria, and a return to war in Iraq–at the cost of billions of dollars, and unimaginable cost to human life and peace everywhere. Also vital to keep speaking out against surveillance and censorship of journalists, activists, writers, and everyday working citizens. And PETA tells us new horrors are being unveiled in recent NIH-funded use of baby macaques ($30 million spent in the last 7 years to traumatize newborns) building on 30 years of needless psychological and physical torture. NRDC tells us the Navy is knowingly going ahead with 5-year mid-frequency sonar testing expected to strand, maim, and kill thousands of whales and other sea creatures.

Just Foreign Policy is running a campaign to get Congress to debate bombing Syria. The Committee to Protect Journalists is running a campaign to speak out for journalists. PETA is running a campaign to stop the torture of baby monkeys. NRDC is running a petition to the Secretary of Defense to stop the sonar testing. There is another petition as well on The Petition Site to stop the sonar.

News and opinion on Iraq and Syria:

Terrific video from Ken O’Keefe, Military veteran, on the insanity of returning to war.

“The staggering costs of all this—$25 billion to train the Iraqi Army, $60 billion for the reconstruction-that-wasn’t, $2 trillion for the overall war, almost 4,500 Americans dead and more than 32,000 wounded, and an Iraqi death toll of more than 190,000 (though some estimates go as high as a million)—can now be measured against the results. The nine-year attempt to create an American client state in Iraq failed, tragically and completely. The proof of that is on today’s front pages.” Read Peter van Buren’s op-ed at Nation of Change on the madness of returning to war in Iraq and bombing Syria.

“Søren Kierkegaard in “The Present Age” warned that the modern state seeks to eradicate conscience and absorb individuals into a public that can be shaped and manipulated by those in power.” Read Chris Hedges’ op-ed on continuous war, the madness of a new war, and what the US is trending toward, via Simone Weil’s ruminations on war, 1984, and the distant memory of the Roman Empire.

Why I Started This Blog

“Some of us have imagined we live in a democracy. We do not….But some of us are waking up. We are finding what is wrong with the world. We are going to make it right. We are learning that we live by each other, and that the life for each other is the only life worth living.” Helen Keller, 1913

The short of it is: I started this blog because over the past 3 years of signing petitions, calling and emailing Senators, and learning–to my horror– through a hundred non-profits sending action alerts to my Inbox what is going on in the country and the world in the areas of campaign finances, unemployment, poverty, environmental degradation, sonar blasting in oceans killing whales, humans killing and eating whales, oceans dying off, hundreds of species becoming extinct, ongoing cruelty in factory farms, GMOs and cancers, neonicotinoids and other pesticides finishing off our pollinators, corporations selling water in colonially-exploited countries, human slavery all over the world, human trafficking, weird and exotic “non-lethal” weapons being manufactured, neuroscience hacking the brain and unethical neuroscientists sticking neuroimplants in unsuspecting patients, the undiscussed dangers of cell phone and microwave radiation, weird weather events and their connection to military experiments, fracking and earthquakes, chem trails and geo-engineering, bioweapons, nanotech, microchips, dubious vaccinations, endless on-and-on wars and weapons development and sales, microwave weapons being used covertly on citizens, mass surveillance, censorship of journalists, persecution of whistleblowers–Manning/Drake/Snowden, Guantanamo, mass mind control technologies already in use, civil rights being rolled back by the bogeyman of “national security,” Fukushima, and other such, I have come to two major conclusions:

1) Signing petitions, emailing and calling Senators, writing letters to the editor, physically showing up to speak out or hold a sign at a rally or protest–these things Matter Hugely, and make a Huge Difference. All around us, change is happening only because ordinary citizens like you and me are speaking out and signing their names to an online petition, or leaving a public comment on some government agency website. And using Facebook and Twitter and everything else to get the word out matters too–for the mere repetition of a positive action creates ripples, and reinforces in consciousness what is possible, and what can change. Especially now, with mass surveillance and mass censorship and mass repression looming, we need to be, en masse, perhaps paradoxically, but exponentially needfully, unafraid to raise our voice. Signing Petitions Matters.

2) If you and I do Not speak out, protest, sign petitions, spread the word, and take action Now to save our oceans, our atmosphere, our country, our food, our water, our democracy, I am certain we are doomed to lose our basic rights and freedoms, our children’s futures, and our planet. There are huge mechanisms–of corporate, military, financial, and government creation–ranged against us, and they are working everyday, with their huge funds, their arsenal of rolled-back laws, their clutch of “classified” operations, and their downright disregard for the everyday working citizen, to undermine us. We are living in a time when our democracy is hanging on a thread. All those conspiracy theories we thought hovered on the far fringes of the Internet–or certainly many, many of them–turn out to be actual conspiracies, and true. This is no longer a normal world. With the advent of high-technology–in every field but especially Applied Physics–Telecommunications/Radiology/Nanotechnology/Computer Science/Artificial Intelligence/Cybernetics and Biology–Neuroscience, Neuropsychiatry, Microbiology–we are living in a world gone crazed at high speed for power and control over all the Earth’s resources, including humans. Ethics has fallen by the wayside. Every one of us needs to wake up and speak out!

And there are many ways of doing this, for sure, and staying in touch with what bigger groups are doing and supporting them is one way. That is what this site is all about.

I’m aware that not everyone is signed up by email with a hundred non-profits to receive Action Alerts and sign a petition, and also that full-time workers probably don’t have the time–which is why what I hope to do here is share those action alerts online, so anyone can check in here and take action via links, anytime. I will organize by subject, so one can pick and choose, and my aim is at least one everyday post. Additionally, I will share news of interest.

And, if you want the longer, slower version as to why I’m impelled to do this, here it is:

Quiet Quincy

Over the last couple years, after we moved up to the Boston area from Washington DC in the summer of 2011, I have been working mostly from home on various writing projects, editing a literary journal, and running creativity workshops and summer camps in art, science, and writing for children, as well as working at local academic institutions nearby.

I’ve had a real taste this way of the quiet, lazy feel of the South Shore; I’ve enjoyed the ambience of living in a “settled” hundred-year old neighborhood in Quincy filled with stately, long-lasting oaks and maples, gentle and genteel neighbors, mostly older, with the occasional friendly young family with kids, a diverse mix of Irish- and Chinese-American families, the usual scurry of backyard bird life woken by the occasional inland-straying seagull, and above all, daytime quiet.

Interspersed with daily dog walks round the neighborhood there have been fairly frequent forays down to the water at Wollaston Beach, or Squantum Beach, or along the canoeing channels of Merrymount Park and by Black’s Creek near Caddy Park, and driving down to Weymouth and Braintree for my daughter’s piano and gym classes. Quiet, sleepy, placid, slow, laid-back, relaxed, easygoing are words I might have used to describe both the South Shore and its residents back then.

Crazed Quincy

This unfortunately is no longer the case. Over the past year, things have changed dramatically in Quincy.

Now, police sirens scream night and day down the once-quiet streets, including the main streets Newport Avenue and Hancock and, in my neighborhood, the close-by Harvard Street–and I mean, quite frequently, as if a thousand criminals were driving hellfire down the South Shore with trusty Quincy cops in high pursuit–and fire engines also shriek fairly often as they clang and roll by, often on quiet walks down winding sidestreets where no hint of burning houses can be seen, to add to which EMS trucks and vans also clog sidestreets and main streets, using sirens and trundling urgently by, as if the number of accidents or emergency medical calls had somehow increased overnight. Daytime quiet therefore no longer exists–there has been a dramatic escalation in the use of sirens, and it continues. This absurdity–especially absurd in its contrast to previously-peaceful Quincy–is clearly contrived. The local police have been incentivized to act like crazed patrollers of a criminal town. To add, if anyone’s noticed–all across the country, police cars and sirens have changed–they are outfitted with dozens of lines of blue lights now, their siren whoops and hollers now, rather than emitting a single round call, and the whole vehicle buzzes and shakes and whoops and dazzles as it flies by–bizarre? You bet.

Traffic also has changed. The roads of Quincy are now clogged with gigantic SUVs, Hummers, large pick-up trucks, and military-style pick-ups with menacing metal frames over the truckbed, large trucks of every kind, and frequent clogging of roads with roadwork trucks, even when there is no roadwork in sight. Starting in Fall 2013, traffic lights suddenly increased in duration. This has not abated. Traffic lights are noticeably longer, which means the long lines of cars with engines chugging, releasing masses of dirty exhaust into the atmosphere at lights are longer, and drivers–the usual Bostonian highway bellicosity notwithstanding–are markedly more belligerent, frequently tailgating, cutting off directly in front of cars, and crowding like swarming bees on highways.

Just to add, aircraft once routed elsewhere from Logan International fly buzzily down the South Shore, in frequent, unceasing drones, joined by peculiar small craft and helicopters which fly into, around, and over suburban neighborhoods, often staying aloft over specific areas and houses for noticeably loud periods of time. (To this end, please see my still-ongoing FOIA request to the FAA regarding small aircraft on muckrock.com, the ensuing correspondence, and sadly, the unrevealing outcome.)

There are other aspects to the current craziness ongoing in Quincy–having to do with neighborhoods, communities, “fusion centers,” deliberate noise harassment practiced by communities, the military in neighborhoods, covert use of military “non-lethal weapons” on “targeted individuals,” citizen informants, and illegitimate Intel investigations–all of which I am learning are nationwide and sadly NATO-nation-wide phenomena, which I’ll touch on below, but cover more fully in a separate post another day.

Chem Trails, Geo-Engineering, Ethics, Activism, & Vast Cover-ups

Last fall, while walking our dog on a sunny October day, I happened to look up and notice a series of white trails criss-crossing the blue sky. They were being made by planes flying down and across in what seemed like a peculiar pattern. That was my first introduction to “chem trails” or what is termed “geo-engineering” in more scientific parlance, both terms I discovered after Googling “criss-crossing white trails in sky.”

Chem trails, I have found, are an ever-expanding mystery. But they are a vital piece in this puzzle, and this blog will focus on unravelling what they are all about, among other concerns. Folks wiser than I who have been researching them for years point to all sorts of aspects of their intent and purpose, more on which later. (But check into www.aircrap.org and www.geoengineeringwatch.org meanwhile.)

At the time, I discovered merely that a great deal of what is in the white effluent released by planes overhead is disastrous to human and earthly health: massive amounts of heavy metal nanoparticulates, consisting of (toxic) aluminium, barium, strontium, various other metals, mutated viruses, molds, fungi–all supposedly designed to provide aerosol’d ions for the seeding of clouds to cover the sun, in an attempt to “reduce global warming,” and coyly titled Solar Radiation Management. This stuff is in nano-form–meaning super-small, small enough to be breathed, swallowed, ingested–and it is: we are breathing this fallout; it sweeps down in rain and wind and enters our lungs, our earth, our organically prepared soil in our organic gardens, our organic fruits and vegetables. It burns holes in leaves, destroys roots, and encourages the attack of tree fungi–I could see this on my walks: trees covered in green mold, breaking branches, dried bark, leaves blackened, with black and orange and yellow spots on them, in some cases burnt through into holes. It enters our bodies and makes us ill. It causes–or becomes a causative factor in– respiratory illnesses, and all the creeping illnesses of dementia, arthritis, varicose veins, arterosclerosis, Alzheimer’s, etc., which, some say, manifest from accumulations of inorganic debris in veins, arteries, nerves. It causes breathing problems in non-asthmatic children, as I have witnessed and heard about, on school playgrounds.

Yet there is no public, mainstream-media discussion of the horrors of geoengineering fallout–why?

There are however, many concerned sites discussing this phenomenon, Geoengineeringwatch.org among them. On their advice, I wrote to my Massachusetts Senators, Quincy City Councillors, the Quincy Mayor, and local State Representatives. I copied this letter to the Boston Globe and the Quincy Patriot Ledger. No-one wrote back except two State Reps, one elaborately explaining leaf-damage as fungal, and perfectly normal, and one Senator, asking for a written letter. I will detail this further in a separate post.

Around this time, I also raised the issue of ethics in a school childcare operation at my child’s school, and corresponded with Amnesty International regarding a Write for Rights campaign they were running.

Apparently I was sticking my neck out, one way or the other, and was attracting the attention of those who apparently have no use for writers, activists, or anyone expressing ethical concerns of any kind–and who, Snowden informs us, are everywhere now, in our workplaces, our Universities, our children’s schools, on School Boards, in libraries, in YMCAs, in airlines, NSA in plain clothes, operating as illegitimate oppressors in plain sight, yet concealed by seemingly innocuous facades as civilians.

In less than two weeks, mayhem arrived at my Boston-suburb neighborhood. A plethora of SUVS and cars, strangers watching me, non-stop surveillance, stalking by car and foot, and on the streets, everyday, harassment on the roads. In addition, I was treated to the mainstream-suppressed, c/overt 24/7 assault on my person of microwave and radio-frequency radiation via 21st-century remote-controlled “non-lethal” neuroweapons or Directed-Energy Weapons (DEWs) using Remote Neural Monitoring technologies, used clandestinely by joint operations of a military/Intel/civilian cartel in neighborhoods, in a gigantic cover-up operation that is, as of September 2014, still not acknowledged by mainstream media, elected Representatives, or major human rights organizations. (See New World Wars: Revolutionary Methods for Political Control, by Mark Rich.) However, again, there is plenty of information on this on the Internet, many groups around the world striving to expose and fight this horror and crime, and alternate media sites covering this phenomenon. I learned from my research that I had apparently become a 21st-century COINTELPRO “targeted individual” and that the pleasures of being a subject of clandestine weapons-testing and clandestine neuroscience- and neuropsychology-probing via Defense-funded research in Universities and hospitals were now also mine. In addition, very shortly after, local Fusion Centers moved in like sharks on my neighborhood, co-opting neighbors into a massive noise and color-harassment campaign which continues–each time I step out, and each time the covert-neuroweapon-wielding maniacs zipping up and down our streets well-above the speed limit fail to “lock on” to my person with their remote-controlled radio-frequency probes. Not long after, I learned I had also become the subject of an illegitimate “investigation”–an FBI investigation? a criminal investigation? –by corrupt government agencies intent on securing the suppression of my writer/activist voice–and the subject of bizarre slander and innuendo in my local communities; my research once again pointed to bogus investigations being “opened” on various people, as a direct mechanism of suppression; ex-FBI agent Mike Germain, for instance, speaks of this in videos on Youtube. Mark Rich and others detail how activists are targeted for oppression, which includes deliberate slander and defamation campaigns, illegitimate FISA letters, bogus FBI investigations which go on forever, and the casual, obviously unethical selling of humans (passing on names and accepting kickbacks) into nonconsensual, unethical research and experimentation programs run by Universities and hospitals in tandem with Defense grants, today, in 2014–all covered up by “classified” labels and secrecy laws. Does this stuff sound savory yet?

Now it seems, in the US (and elsewhere), people of every stripe, in every community, easily incited by falsehoods fabricated and spread by the local arm of the DHS–the fusion center, the Neighborhood Watch–and swayed by a badge, a Government seal, Government letterhead, and false files, consent easily to become part of the massive citizen Stasi that has been covertly but insistently sweeping across America. Perhaps they are told they are “fighting terrorism” or “protecting the Homeland.” Perhaps they are told the person they are acting against is a “threat” to their community. An “extremist” or an “anti-American.” They are certainly being lied to. For, even educated as (some of them) are, they think nothing to step out in stores, in businesses, in soccer fields, in restaurants, in gyms, in local communities of every kind to play the parts of watcher, surveiller, disruptor, noise-harasser, color-harasser, conversation-repeater, echo-creator in petty, hostile actions aimed against certain “targeted” people, often with the most self-righteous looks on their faces–not realizing they themselves are being manipulated in vast social-engineering networks designed to control and subjugate people, and that they are themselves part of vast Artificial-Intelligence and cybernetic experiments surreptitiously being run by Intel and military in collusion with Universities, again, with the intent of managing, controlling, subduing, and deceiving whole populations. See Robert Duncan’s The Matrix Deciphered for more.

How could this be happening in America? But it is. Something Orwellian is going on, globally, but especially here in the US that only people who are paying attention–via alternate media–are aware of. Something to do with a scarcely-believable manic, psychopathic, elitist plan to depopulate, subjugate, and establish a global fascist government charmingly titled a One-World government, using the horrors of 21st-century science and technology to forcefully acheive their aims.

Again, I will post more on all of this later–this whole subject of New World Order military/corporates setting out to establish control over populations surreptitiously, covered extensively online elsewhere–and will post links to this information as well. I include this subject–COINTELPRO state-sponsored and citizen-co-opting terrorism in 2014 in the USA–on this website, as a common concern for all citizens of this country to address.

Frankly, I do not refer to myself these days as a “targeted individual,” nor do I see myself as a victim. What has arrived at my doorstep is completely symptomatic of the deterioration and decay of our society–the slide downward in our government from a flourishing democracy to a surveillance- and censorship-obsessed totalitarianism which promotes psychopathy in high places. It does not define who I am–but perhaps is directly responsible for my intention to expose the criminality and corruption it embodies.

America (the USA) has changed

America has changed, and not for the better. But that doesn’t mean we accept it.

With every ounce of who we are as a thinking, feeling human species, we need to resist this totalitarianism whose ugly face we are seeing more and more around us–in Ferguson, in the US government’s nonchalance toward Gaza, in the militarization of police nationwide, in the imposition of corporate dominance in every arena, be it food, air, water, “solar radiation management,” or anything else. This is not who we are as Americans. This is not the America we signed up to live in. We, the people of America, who live and work here, who take pride in community, in peace, in equity, in justice, in helping, not hurting, in creating friends, not enemies, in being open, not covert, in sharing and caring–we need to take our country back from the corporations intent on ruining us.

In the words of the immortal Helen Keller, who was fighting corporate oppression in the time period before, during, and after the First World War: Some of us have imagined we live in a democracy. We do not….But some of us are waking up. We are finding what is wrong with the world. We are going to make it right. We are learning that we live by each other, and that the life for each other is the only life worth living. A new light is coming to millions who looked for light and found darkness, a life to them who looked for the grave, and were bitter in spirit. We are part of this light. Let us go forth from here shafts of the sun unto shadows. With our hearts, let us see, with our hands, let us break every chain. Then indeed shall we know a better and nobler humanity.”
