99 Problems

99 Problems

By Expotera
December 30, 2015

Dear Earthly Trillionaires, Billionaires, and Millionaires:

As of today, December 30, 2015 each of you respectively, now has,
"99 PROBLEMS" and I can most certainly, as well as personally assure
each and every one of, "YOU" that a bitch isn't, "ONE" but each and
every one of, "YOU" now have less than, "ONE" year, to figure out
how you are going to provide, money, food, water, clothing, as
well as, "SHELTER" to the billions, upon billions, upon billions,
upon billions of people, who currently are being, "INTENTIONALLY"
denied, each, and, every, one, of, these, present, "THINGS"
because you see at some point, each and every one of, "YOU" is
going to eventually take your very last as well as final, "BREATH"
down upon this, "EARTH" and when this happens, each of, "YOU"
is going to be put into a wooden box now known as a, "COFFIN"
and each of, "YOU" is going to be lowered six feet into the ground,
as well as fully covered with dirt, as well as completely,
"SURROUNDED" by, each, and, every, Man, Women, and, "CHILD"
that you ever dropped a, "BOMB" on, or that you ever let starve
to, "DEATH" and all of the many, many, many, "LIES" that each of,
"YOU" have now been told about all of that, "FORGIVE" and/or,
"FORGET" bullshit, is just that, "BULLSHIT" because we don't ever,
"FORGET" who dropped, "BOMBS" on us, nor do we ever, "FORGIVE"
those who intentionally starved us to, "DEATH" as well.

We just simply wait for each and every one of, "YOU" to simply
take your final breath, to be lowered into the ground, and to be
covered with dirt, then, "WE" pretty much take things over from,
"THERE" which is why each of you who is still, "ABOVE" ground,
and presently sitting on trillions, upon billions, upon millions of,
"DOLLARS" while billions, upon billions, upon billions of, "US"
are currently having, "BOMBS" dropped on us, as well as being
systematically starved to, "DEATH" as well, each now have, "99
PROBLEMS" because your Father, "SATAN" most certainly is a,
"BITCH" but our, "FATHER" who is the, "CREATOR" most certainly
isn't, "ONE"....

An Open Letter To My Ex-Wife And Bill Gates

An Open Letter To My Ex-Wife And Bill Gates

By Expotera
December 21, 2015

Avie & Bill:

Let me start off by saying how extremely disappointed I was on
this past Friday when I first went to my mailbox and I didn't see
and/or find a, "Birthday Card" from both you and our daughter,
Avie, and Bill, when I called my bank to check on my account, I
didn't see and/or find a financial, "Deposit" into my own personal
checking account or into the business checking account for,
"Expotera" as well, Bill.

So today I have now decided to take all of my many, many, issues
and grievances with the two of you, "PUBLIC" as they say, because
to be honest, I really can't stand either one of you because each of
you has now used both your wealth and privilege here on this Earth,
to, "ILLEGALLY" separate me from two separate things that I
individually, "CREATED" with each of you, and each of you has now
been holding these two separate things that I individually created
with each of you, "HOSTAGE" for many, many, many, "YEARS" now,
and as of today, and as we are now heading into the earth year of,
"2016" I am simply done playing each of your very childish games
here because Avie, you now owe me, "17" years, and Bill, you
now owe me, "11" years, and in 2016, I am basically coming to,
"COLLECT" on each of the very, very, large, "DEBTS" the two of
you now owe back to me and because I am still indirectly earth,
"PARTNERS" with each of you, I still have some feelings of earthly,
"SYMPATHY" as well as earthly, "COMPASSION" for each of you.

But if I should now leave this earth without the two of you making
any real, and/or very serious, as well as very sincere attempts to
now resolve any of this with me, once the two of you leave this
earth, I will no longer have any earthly sympathy and/or earthly
compassion for either one of you because the two of you basically,
"USED" me, to get what each of you wanted out of me, then each
of you decided to simply throw me away like I was a piece of black,
"TRASH" and I very deeply resent each of you for doing this to not
only me, but also to each of our two individual, as well as,
"PRICELESS" creations, as well.

On this past Friday, I turned exactly, "50" years old, and Avie, you
simply need to, "GROW" up, and stop acting like the spoiled little
rich girl that you are, and Bill, you simply need to admit that you
still, "NEED" both me, as well as, "EXPOTERA" because let's face it,
Microsoft is a piece of shit company that hasn't created anything,
"NEW" in years, and as soon as the American People finally, "WAKE
UP" and "SHUT DOWN" the Federal Reserve, Bill, all of your, "FAKE"
wealth, along Zuckerberg's and everyone else's will be rightfully
return to it's native, "NOTHINGNESS" because all of you guys are a,
"JOKE" and all of your creations are, "STOLEN" as well.

So 2016 is most certainly going to be a very, very, "INTERESTING"
year, because the two of you have now used both your wealth and
privilege to simply, "IGNORE" me, over these past many, many,
years, but I am now simply, "DONE" being ignored by the two of you
and the two of you now, "OWE" me, and I do sincerely wish each of
you the very best of, "LUCK" in now trying to figure out how to,
"REPAY" me for the two things that each of you could have, never,
ever, ever, ever, ever, "CREATED" without me.

So inclosing, Avie, I sincerely wish you, and the rest of your,
"JEWISH" family members, a very, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" and Bill,
I sincerely wish you and all the rest of your fellow, "ATHEIST"
family members, a very, "MERRY CHRISTMAS" as well, because I
will never, ever, ever, loose anything in this life that is mine by,
"DIVINE RIGHT" so the quote, unqoute, "LESSONS" that the two of
you think that you have now been teaching me by cutting me off,
"FINANCIALLY" and by holding both my, "CHILD" as well as my multi-
billion dollar Internet start-up, "HOSTAGE" from me, will be the
very exact same lessons that I will be teaching back to each of,
"YOU" once the three of us are all finally off this, "PLANET" and the
wealth, as well as the privilege, has shifted back into, "MY" favor.

Jade Helm

Jade Helm

By Expotera
December 18, 2015

In China there is a writing system called, Hanzi.

The Japanese still use the old form of this writing as
well and in Japan they call this writing system, Kanji.

One symbol means, "King" and it starts with the
character for King 王 (pronounced "wang")

Simply add a flick, and it's the character for,
"Money" and/or, "Jade" 玉 (pronounced "yu")

Now put a square around this, and it's the simplified Chinese
character for, "Country/Nation/State" 国 (pronounced "guo")

And on December 18, 2015, when you simply put and combine
all of this information above, together with this picture below,
it simply means that even to this very day, and even over here
in America, "The King, Who Controls The Jade, Controls The Country."

Social Security Cards

Social Security Cards

By Danny Whited
Via - Christina Lancaster
December 16, 2015

Social Security Cards up until the 1980s expressly stated the
number and card were not to be used for identification purposes.

Since nearly everyone in the United States now has a number,
it became convenient to use it anyway and the, "NOT FOR
IDENTIFICATION" message was removed.

Franklin Roosevelt, a Democrat, introduced the Social Security
(FICA) Program and his promises were as follows:

1.) That participation in the Program would be Completely
voluntary [No longer voluntary],

2.) That the participants would only have to pay 1% of the first
$1,400 of their annual Incomes into the Program [Now 7.65% on the
first $90,000, and 15% on the first $90,000 if you’re self-employed],

3.) That the money the participants elected to put into the Program
would be deductible from their income for tax purposes each year
[No longer tax deductible],

4.) That the money the participants put into the independent ‘Trust
Fund’ rather than into the general operating fund, and therefore,
would only be used to fund the Social Security Retirement Program,
and no other Government program [Under Johnson the money was
moved to the General Fund and Spent], and

5.) That the annuity payments to the retirees would never be taxed
as income [Under Clinton & Gore up to 85% of your Social Security
can be Taxed].

Since many of us have paid into FICA for years and are now
receiving a Social Security check every month — and then finding
that we are getting taxed on 85% of the money we paid to the
Federal government to ‘put away’ — you may be interested in the
following:

Q: Which Political Party took Social Security from the independent
‘Trust Fund’ and put it into the general fund so that Congress could
spend it?

A: It was Lyndon Johnson and the democratically controlled
House and Senate.

Q: Which Political Party eliminated the income tax deduction
for Social Security (FICA) withholding?

A: The Democratic Party.

Q: Which Political Party started taxing Social Security annuities?

A: The Democratic Party, with Al Gore casting the ‘tie-breaking’
deciding vote as President of the Senate, while he was Vice
President of the US

Now, after violating the original contract (FICA), the Democrats
turn around and tell you that the Republicans want to take your
Social Security away.

And the worst part about it is uninformed citizens believe it.

If enough people receive this, maybe a seed of awareness will
be planted and maybe changes will evolve. Maybe not, though.

Actions speak louder than bumper stickers.

The Act of 1871

The Act of 1871

By Nick Harding
Via - Lynn Miller
December 14 2015

The date is February 21, 1871 and the Forty-First Congress is in
session.

I refer you to the, "Acts of the Forty-First Congress," Section 34,
Session III, chapters 61 and 62.

On this date in the history of our nation, Congress passed an Act
titled:

"An Act To Provide A Government for the District of Columbia."

This is also known as the, "Act of 1871."

What does this mean?

Well, it means that Congress, under no constitutional authority to
do so, created a separate form of government for the, "District of
Columbia" which is a, "ten mile square parcel of land."

This is why you have a Federal Government, and Federal Reserve.

The rest of the deal was that the bankers privately owned,
"Federal Interests" in America.

"All Interests Federal" means they own your Government.

They then went on to build the, "Federal Reserve Bank" in America
in 1913, which they are still the owners of today, and since then
they have been the controllers of all of your tax payer money.

You are, "The Corporate States of America" and to make note of
this, President John F. Kennedy signed a bill into law on June 4,
1963 to abolish the, "Federal Reserve" and, on the same day, he
also signed executive order number, (11110) authorizing the
Treasury Secretary to continue printing silver certificates during
this transition period.

The US Treasury is the, "State Interest Free Sovereign Bank" which
came into existence on September 2, 1789 and this Bank was put
there for you by your country's, "Founding Fathers" but it sure didn't
take long for, "JFK" to be killed now did it?

Plato's Divided Line

Plato's Divided Line

By The Information Philosopher
Friday, December 4, 2015

At the end of Book VI of the Republic (509D-513E), Plato describes
the visible world of perceived physical objects and the images
we make of them (in our minds and in our drawings, for example).

The sun, he said, not only provides the visibility of the objects,
but also generates them and is the source of their growth and
nurture.

Many primitive religions identify the sun with God,
for good reason.

Beyond this visible world, which later philosophers (esp. Immanuel
Kant) would call the phenomenal world, lies an intelligible world
(that Kant will call noumenal.

The intelligible world is (metaphorically) illuminated by "the
Good" (τον ἀγαθὸν), just as the visible world is illuminated by
the sun.

The division of Plato's Line between Visible and Intelligible is
then a divide between the Material and the Ideal, the foundation
of most Dualisms.

Plato may have coined the word "idea" (ἰδέα), using it somewhat
interchangeably with the Greek word for shape or form (εἶδος ).

The word idea derives from the Greek for, "to have seen."

Plato's Line is also a division between Body and Mind.

The upper half of the divided line is usually called Intelligible as
opposed to Visible, meaning that it is "seen" by the mind (510E),
by the Greek Nous (νοῦς), rather than by the eye.

In most modern Indo-European languages there are two words
that correspond to the English, "to know."

One of these derives from, "to be cognizant of" or "to be acquainted
with" the other from, "to have seen."

The first is the cognate (sic) of English, "know." e.g, Greek gnosis
(γνῶσις), meaning knowledge.

For knowledge the Greeks also used epistέme (ἐπιστήμη), the root
for our word epistemology.

Examples of European words that we also translate "know," but
which derive from "see," are savoir (Fr.) and wissen (Ger.).

In Republic, Book VI, 507C, Plato describes these two classes of
things, those that can be seen but not thought, and those that can
be thought but not seen: καὶ τὰ μὲν δὴ ὁρᾶσθαί φαμεν, νοεῖσθαι δ᾽
οὔ, τὰς δ᾽ αὖ ἰδέας νοεῖσθαι μέν, ὁρᾶσθαι δ᾽ οὔ.

Plato's Divided Line

At Republic, Book VI, 508B-C, Plato makes an analogy between
the role of the sun, whose light gives us our vision to see (ὄψις)
and visible things to be seen (ὁρώμενα) and the role of the Good (τἀγαθὸν).

The sun rules over our vision and the things we see.

The Good rules over our (hypothetical) knowledge and the (real)
objects of our knowledge (the forms, the ideas):

“This, then, you must understand that I meant by the offspring of
the good which the good begot to stand in a proportion with itself:
as the good is in the intelligible region to reason [CD] and the
objects of reason [DE], so is this (sc. the sun) in the visible world
to vision [AB] and the objects of vision [BC].”

φάναι με λέγειν τὸν τοῦ ἀγαθοῦ ἔκγονον, ὃν τἀγαθὸν ἐγέννησεν
ἀνάλογον ἑαυτῷ, ὅτιπερ αὐτὸἐν τῷ νοητῷ τόπῳ πρός τε νοῦν καὶ τὰ
νοούμενα, τοῦτο τοῦτον ἐν τῷ ὁρατῷ πρός τε ὄψιν καὶ τὰ ὁρώμενα.

At 509D-510A, Plato describes the line as divided into two sections
that are not the same (ἄνισα) size.

Most modern versions represent the Intelligible section as larger
than the Visible.

But there are strong reasons to think that for Plato the Intelligible
(being unitary abstraction) is to the Visible (with its many concrete
particulars) as the One is to the Many.

We don't know whether Plato imagined the Intelligible or the Visible
to be the larger section, but it seems clear that he pictures the Intelligible
section above the Visible, so we use a vertical line.

Plato then further divides each of the Intelligible and the Visible
sections into two. He argues that the new divisions are in the same
ratio as the fundamental division.

“Represent them then, as it were, by a line divided into two
unequal sections and cut each section again in the same ratio (the
section, that is, of the visible and that of the intelligible order),
and then as an expression of the ratio of their comparative
clearness and obscurity you will have, as one of the sections of the
visible world, images.

By images I mean, first, shadows, and then reflections in water and
on surfaces of dense, smooth and bright texture, and everything of
that kind, if you apprehend.”

“I do.”

“As the second section assume that of which this is a likeness or an
image, that is, the animals about us and all plants and the whole
class of objects made by man.”

“I so assume it,” he said.

“Would you be willing to say,” said I, “that the division in respect
of reality and truth or the opposite is expressed by the proportion:
as is the opinable (δόξα) to the knowable (γνῶσις) so is the likeness
(ὁμοιωθὲν) to that of which it is a likeness (ὡμοιώθη)?”

ὥσπερ τοίνυν γραμμὴν δίχα τετμημένην λαβὼν ἄνισα τμήματα, πάλιν τέμνε ἑκάτερον τὸ τμῆμα ἀνὰ τὸν αὐτὸν λόγον, τό τε τοῦ ὁρωμένου γένους καὶ τὸ τοῦ νοουμένου, καί σοι ἔσται σαφηνείᾳ καὶ ἀσαφείᾳ πρὸς ἄλληλα ἐν μὲν τῷ ὁρωμένῳ τὸ μὲν ἕτερον τμῆμα εἰκόνες — λέγω δὲ τὰς εἰκόνας πρῶτον μὲν τὰς σκιάς, ἔπειτα τὰ ἐν τοῖς ὕδασι φαντάσματα καὶ ἐν τοῖς ὅσα πυκνά τε καὶ λεῖα καὶ φανὰ συνέστηκεν, καὶ πᾶν τὸ τοιοῦτον, εἰ κατανοεῖς.

ἀλλὰ κατανοῶ.

τὸ τοίνυν ἕτερον τίθει ᾧ τοῦτο ἔοικεν, τά τε περὶ ἡμᾶς ζῷς καὶ πᾶν τὸ φυτευτὸν καὶ τὸ σκευαστὸν ὅλον γένος. τίθημι, ἔφη. ἦ καὶ ἐθέλοις ἂν αὐτὸ φάναι, ἦν δ᾽ ἐγώ, διῃρῆσθαι ἀληθείᾳ τε καὶ μή, ὡς τὸ δοξαστὸν πρὸς τὸ γνωστόν, οὕτω τὸ ὁμοιωθὲν πρὸς τὸ ᾧ ὡμοιώθη;

Later, at 511D-E, Plato summarizes the four sections of the divided
line:

“Your interpretation is quite sufficient,” I said; “and now,
answering to these four sections, assume these four affections
occurring in the soul: intellection (νόησιν) or reason for the highest
[DE], understanding (διάνοια) for the second [CD]; assign belief
(πίστις) to the third [BC], and to the last picture-thinking or
conjecture (εἰκασία) [AB], and arrange them in a proportion,
considering that they participate in clearness and precision in the
same degree as their objects partake of truth and reality.”

ἱκανώτατα, ἦν δ᾽ ἐγώ, ἀπεδέξω. καί μοι ἐπὶ τοῖς τέτταρσι τμήμασι τέτταρα ταῦτα παθήματα ἐν τῇ ψυχῇ γιγνόμενα λαβέ, νόησιν μὲν ἐπὶ τῷ ἀνωτάτω, διάνοιανδὲ ἐπὶ τῷ δευτέρῳ, τῷ τρίτῳ δὲ πίστιν ἀπόδος καὶ τῷ τελευταίῳ εἰκασίαν, καὶ τάξον αὐτὰ ἀνὰ λόγον, ὥσπερ ἐφ᾽ οἷς ἐστιν ἀληθείας μετέχει, οὕτω ταῦτα σαφηνείας ἡγησάμενος μετέχειν.

We can collect the various terms that Plato has used to describe
the components of his divided line. Some terms are ontological,
describing the contents of the four sections. Some are
epistemological, describing how it is we know those contents.

509D-510A likenesses, images, shadows, imitations, our vision
(ὄψις, ὁμοιωθὲν) the physical things that we see/perceive with
our senses (ὁρώμενα, ὁμοιωθὲν) opinion, beliefs (δόξα, νοῦν)
knowledge (γνῶσις, νοούμενα)

511D-E conjectures, images, (εἰκασία) trust, confidence, belief
(πίστις) understanding, hypothesis (διανόια) intellection, the
objects of reason (νόησις, ἰδέαι, ἐπιστήμην)

By insisting that the ratio or proportion of the division of the
visibles (AB:BC) and the division of the intelligibles (CD:DE)
are in the same ratio or proportion as the visibles to the
intelligibles (AC:CE), Plato has made BC = CD.

And indeed Plato at one point identifies the contents of these
two sections.

He says (510B) that in CD the soul is compelled to investigate by
treating as images the things imitated in the former division (BC).

“Consider then again the way in which we are to make the division
of the intelligible section.”

“In what way?”

“By the distinction that there is one section of it [CD] which the
soul is compelled to investigate by treating as images the things
imitated in the former division [BC], and by means of assumptions
from which it proceeds not up to a first principle but down to
a conclusion, while there is another section in which it advances
from its assumption to a beginning or principle that transcends
assumption (ἀρχὴν ἀνυπόθετον), and in which it makes no use of
the images employed by the other section, relying on ideas only
and progressing systematically through ideas.”

σκόπει δὴ αὖ καὶ τὴν τοῦ νοητοῦ τομὴν ᾗ τμητέον.

πῇ;

ἧι τὸ μὲν αὐτοῦ τοῖς τότε μιμηθεῖσιν ὡς εἰκόσιν χρωμένη ψυχὴ ζητεῖν ἀναγκάζεται ἐξ ὑποθέσεων, οὐκ ἐπ᾽ ἀρχὴν πορευομένη ἀλλ᾽ ἐπὶ τελευτήν, τὸ δ᾽ αὖ ἕτερον—τὸ ἐπ᾽ ἀρχὴν ἀνυπόθετον—ἐξ ὑποθέσεως ἰοῦσα καὶ ἄνευ τῶν περὶ ἐκεῖνο εἰκόνων, αὐτοῖς εἴδεσι δι᾽ αὐτῶν τὴν μέθοδον ποιουμένη.

Plato distinguishes two methods here.

The first (the method of the mathematician or scientist) starts
with assumptions or hypotheses (ὑποθέσεων) - Aristotle called
them axioms - and proceeds to a conclusion (τελευτήν) which
remains dependent on the hypotheses or axioms.

The second (the dialectician or philosopher) advances from
assumptions to a beginning or first principle (ἀρχὴν) that
transcends the hypotheses (ἀνυπόθετον), relying on ideas
only and progressing systematically through ideas.

The question whether and in what way such first principles exist
is the subject of "first philosophy" that Aristotle's editors called
Μetaphysics.

Ιn the traditional order of Aristotle's works, these books came
after the Physics and were so titled - ΤΟΝ ΜΕΤΑ ΤΑ ΦΥΣΙΚΑ.

The Neoplatonist philosopher Porphyry is said to have asked the
"fateful question" of whether Plato's ideas (forms or essences)
really exist.

Aristotle unequivocally thought that the Platonic ideas were
simply abstractions from concrete existents.

In the twentieth-century jargon of Existentialism, "existence
precedes essence."

Platonism (sometimes called Platonic Realism or Platonic Idealism)
is the view that the ideas exist, but since they are not physical,
their existence is outside space and time.

In the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries a view called
psychologism (or conceptualism) was developed, arguing that
the ideas exist as concepts only in human minds.

Anti-Realism (also called Nominalism) denies the separate abstract
existence of the ideas, claiming that the number 3, for example,
exists only in all the concrete sets of three things.

The abstract concept of redness exists in the set of all red things.

This was Aristotle's view.

Plato claims that the dialectical method is more holistic and
capable of reaching a higher form of knowledge, possibly related
to his notion that the eternal soul has "seen" all these truths in past
lives (incarnations) and before (we might call it the before life).

Aristotle's divided line!

Plato's idea that the Good (τον ἀγαθὸν) is the creator (δεμιύργος)
of all the ideas (the forms of the Good) resembles our information
philosophy view that ergodic processes are the source of everything
of positive value (our Ergo).

Plato does not identify the Good with material things or even with
the abstract ideas and forms. The Good is the creative process that
generates the forms.

Fight With Peace

Fight With Peace

By Marwa Balkar
November 30, 2015

Dear @realdonaldtrump, My name is Marwa, and I am a Muslim.

I heard you wanted us the start wearing ID badges,
so I decided to choose one for myself.

I am not easily identifiable as a ‪‎Muslim‬ just by looking at me,
so my new badge will let me display proudly who I am.

I chose the peace sign because it represents my ‪Islam‬.

The one that taught me to oppose ‪‎injustice‬ and yearn for ‪unity‬.

The one that taught me that killing one innocent life is equivalent
to killing humanity.

I heard you want to track us as well.

Great!

You can come with me on my Cancer Awareness walks at the local
middle school, or you can follow me to work where it's my job to
create happiness.

You can also see how my local mosque makes PB&J sandwiches
for the homeless and hosts interfaith dinners where everyone is
welcome.

Maybe then you'll see that me being Muslim doesn't make me any
less American than you are.

Maybe if you walk in my footsteps, you can see that I am not any
less human than you are.

Salaamu alaikum

Can Western Decadence Last?

Can Western Decadence Last?

By Adbusters.org
November 29, 2015

While the West has been living lavishly for sixty years, consuming
with such ferocity that the trajectory of the planet’s biosphere has
been forever altered, the rest of the world has become angry, sick
of it all and willing to do whatever it takes to produce a better way
of life for themselves.

Because after all of the promises made and broken by the World
Bank, the IMF, the United Nations, the rest of the world has lost
its patience.

The Islamic State is but a beginning of the kinds of self-organizing
that will occur once the latest round of pacifist, neo-political
activism fails.

The West is bloated, soft and decadent.

This decadence will not last; it never has and never will.

We thank you for our daily bread,
For faith by which the soul is fed,
For burdens given us to bear,
For hope that lifts the heart's despair.

We thank thee Lord, for eyes to see,
The truth that makes, and keeps, men free;
For faults - and the strength to mend them
For dreams - and courage to defend them.

We have so much to thank thee for,
Dear Lord, we beg not one boon more,
Peace in the hearts of all men living,
Peace in the whole world on this Thanksgiving.

Gather 'round and haggle

For hard cash, we will lie and deceive
Even our masters don't know the web we weave

One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down

One world ... One world

Invisible transfers, long distance calls,
Hollow laughter in marble halls

Steps have been taken, a silent uproar
Has unleashed the dogs of war

You can't stop what has begun
Signed, sealed, they deliver oblivion

We all have a dark side, to say the least
And dealing in death is the nature of the beast

One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down

One world ... One world

The dogs of war don't negotiate
The dogs of war won't capitulate,

They will take and you will give,
And you must die so that they may live

You can knock at any door,
But wherever you go, you know they've been there before

Well winners can lose and things can get strained
But whatever you change, you know the dogs remain

One world, it's a battleground
One world, and we will smash it down

One world ... One world

Do Not Love The World

Do Not Love The World

By Expotera
Via - 1 John 2:15-17
November 22, 2015

Do not love the world or the things in the world.

If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him.

For all that is in the world--- the desires of the flesh and the desires of eyes and pride in possessions---is not from the Father, but is from the world.

And the world is passing away along with it's desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

The Eagle and The Snake

The Eagle and The Snake

By Omika Armstrong
November 19, 2015

The Eagle does not fight the snake on the ground.

It picks it up into the sky and changes the battle ground,
and then it releases the snake into the sky.

The snake has no stamina, no power, and no balance,
in the air.

It is useless, weak, and vulnerable, unlike on the ground
where it is powerful wise, and deadly.

Take your fight into the spiritual realm by praying and when you
are in the spiritual realm your, "Creator" takes over your battles.

Don't fight the enemy in his comfort zone, change the battle
grounds like the Eagle, and let your, "Creator" take charge
through your earnest prayer.

You'll be assured of clean victory.

Pray without ceasing.

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today

Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world,

You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope some day you'll join us
And the world will be as one

Steve Jobs Last Words

Steve Jobs Last Words

By Steve Jobs
Via - Peter Bizulca
November 14, 2015

I reached the pinnacle of success in the business world.

In others’ eyes, my life is an epitome of success.

However, aside from work, I have little joy.

In the end, wealth is only a fact of life that I am accustomed to.

At this moment, lying on the sick bed and recalling my whole life,
I realize that all the recognition and wealth that I took so much
pride in, have paled and become meaningless in the face of
impending death.

In the darkness, I look at the green lights from the life supporting
machines and hear the humming mechanical sounds, I can feel the
breath of god of death drawing closer…

Now I know, when we have accumulated sufficient wealth to last
our lifetime, we should pursue other matters that are unrelated
to wealth…

Should be something that is more important:

Perhaps relationships, perhaps art, perhaps a dream from younger
days ...

Non-stop pursuing of wealth will only turn a person into a twisted
being, just like me.

God gave us the senses to let us feel the love in everyone’s heart,
not the illusions brought about by wealth.

The wealth I have won in my life I cannot bring with me.

What I can bring is only the memories precipitated by love.

That’s the true riches which will follow you, accompany you,
giving you strength and light to go on.

Love can travel a thousand miles.

Life has no limit.

Go where you want to go.

Reach the height you want to reach.

It is all in your heart and in your hands.

What is the most expensive bed in the world? - "Sick bed" …

You can employ someone to drive the car for you, make
money for you but you cannot have someone to bear the
sickness for you.

Material things lost can be found. But there is one thing
that can never be found when it is lost – "Life".

When a person goes into the operating room, he will realize
that there is one book that he has yet to finish reading –
"Book of Healthy Life".

Whichever stage in life we are at right now, with time,
we will face the day when the curtain comes down.

Treasure Love for your family, love for your spouse, love for
your friends...

Treat yourself well.

Cherish others.

The Eternal Soldier

The Eternal Soldier

By Mark Vine
WarPoetry.co.uk
November 11, 2015

I am the eternal soldier; I’m there when you need me,
Fighting for your liberties, down every century.

Standing on the front-line, bleeding for your cause,
Just a name on a memorial, at which you never pause.

I halted the Armada, stood my ground at Marston Moor,
I was in the line at Minden, and I heard the Zulu roar,
I was in the square at Waterloo, and fought the fearless Boers,
And I was gassed in the trenches of the war to end all wars …….

I piloted a Spitfire, stormed the beach at Normandy,
Froze to death in Korea, and I yomped to Port Stanley,
I was bombed to hell in Basra, under fire in old Kabul,
I am a deadly Exocet, a politician’s tool.

Yet all I ask is wages, and three square meals a day,
To lay my life upon the line, to live in harms way.

But it’s the same old story, when your victory is won,
Then I’m just an embarrassment, with a loaded gun.

And the debt is soon forgotten, when the nightmares come to call,
When each night I hear my best friend scream and helpless, watch him fall,

I’m told to snap out of it, I’m told big boys don’t cry,
And I’m left to drink myself to death and on a cold street die.

I halted the Armada, stood my ground at Marston Moor,
I was in the line at Minden and I heard the Zulu roar,
I was in the square at Waterloo and fought the fearless Boers,
And I was gassed in the trenches of the war to end all wars …….

I piloted a Spitfire, stormed the beach at Normandy
Froze to death in Korea and I yomped to Port Stanley,
I was bombed to hell in Basra, under fire in old Kabul,
I am a deadly Exocet, a politician’s tool.

I march on your decision, anywhere in this wide world,
In places where our flag had no right to be unfurled.

And I’m not asking for riches, I want nothing for free,
The only thing I’m asking for, Is a measure of dignity.

For I am the eternal soldier; I’m there when you need me,
Fighting for your conscience, down every century.

And I’m standing on the front-line, bleeding for your cause,
Just a name on a memorial, at which you never pause.

Zionism

Zionism

By Abu Maryam Hendrix
Via - American's Against Genocide In Gaza
November 9, 2015

Zionism is an inherent demonic ideology that can’t be reformed
or even humanized to represent authentic Judaism, since the
very essence of Zionism represents the ultimate antithesis of
truth, justice, peace, and even humanity.

Hence, coexisting with Zionism would necessitate that non-Jews
accept a dehumanized status of constantly persecuted slaves,
without freedom, without dignity and without a future.

Isn’t this what millions of Palestinians have been experiencing
since the misbegotten birth of Israel?

In the annals of history, such a state, which adopts dishonesty as
its policy, criminality as its shield and racism as its soul, will not
last long.

Lucifer's Chosen People

Lucifer's Chosen People

By Expotera
October 21, 2015

In 1976 interview with a gentlemen by the name of Mr. Walter White Jr., a very influential Jewish man by the name of Mr. Harold Wallace Rosenthal, a man who was very much involved in the inner workings of government out in Washington D.C. back at that time stated the following:

"Most Jews don't like to admit it, but our god is Lucifer...and we are his chosen people..."

The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview
http://www.rense.com/general66/rosen.htm

And 2000 years previous to this, someone by the name of, "Jesus"
had this to say about Lucifer's, "Children" and his chosen people,
as well:

"Abraham is our father,” they answered. "If you were Abraham’s children,” said Jesus, then you would do what Abraham did.

As it is, you are looking for a way to kill me, a man who has
told you the truth that I heard from God.

Abraham did not do such things. You are doing the works of,
"your own father.”

“We are not illegitimate children,” they protested. “The only
Father we have is God himself.”

Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love me,
for I have come here from God."

I have not come on my own; God sent me. Why is my language
not clear to you?

Because you are unable to hear what I say.

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out
your father’s desires.

He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth,
for there is no truth in him.

When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar
and the father of lies.

Yet because I tell the truth, you do not believe me!

Can any of you prove me guilty of sin?

If I am telling the truth, why don’t you believe me?

Whoever belongs to God hears what God says.

The reason you do not hear is that you do not belong to God.

Generals gathered in their masses, just like witches at black masses.

Evil minds that plot destruction, sorcerer of death's construction.

In the fields the bodies burning, as the war machine keeps turning.

Death and hatred to mankind, poisoning their brainwashed minds...Oh lord yeah!

Politicians hide themselves away.

They only started the war.

Why should they go out to fight?

They leave that role to the poor.

Time will tell on their power minds.

Making war just for fun.

Treating people just like pawns in chess.

Wait `till their judgement day comes, yeah!

Now in darkness, world stops turning, ashes where the bodies burning.

No more war pigs have the power, hand of God, has struck the hour.

Day of judgement, God, is calling, on their knees the war pigs crawling.

Begging mercy for their sins, Satan, laughing, spreads his wings...
Oh lord, yeah!

You should know this Timothy, that in the last days there will be very difficult times.

For people will only love themselves and their money.

The will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents and ungrateful.

They will consider nothing sacred.

They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self control; they will be cruel and have no interest in what is good.

They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.

They will act as if they are religious, but they will reject the power that could make them Godly.

You must stay away from people like that.

The Assassination Complex

The Assassination Complex

By Jeremy Scahill
The Intercept.com
October 16, 2015

From his first days as commander in chief, the drone has been
President Barack Obama’s weapon of choice, used by the military
and the CIA to hunt down and kill the people his administration
has deemed — through secretive processes, without indictment
or trial — worthy of execution.

There has been intense focus on the technology of remote killing,
but that often serves as a surrogate for what should be a broader
examination of the state’s power over life and death.

DRONES ARE A TOOL, not a policy. The policy is assassination.

While every president since Gerald Ford has upheld an executive
order banning assassinations by U.S. personnel, Congress has
avoided legislating the issue or even defining the word,
“assassination.”

This has allowed proponents of the drone wars to re-brand
assassinations with more palatable characterizations, such
as the term du jour, “targeted killings.”

When the Obama administration has discussed drone strikes
publicly, it has offered assurances that such operations are
a more precise alternative to boots on the ground and are
authorized only when an, “imminent” threat is present and
there is, “near certainty” that the intended target will be
eliminated.

Those terms, however, appear to have been bluntly redefined
to bear almost no resemblance to their commonly understood
meanings.

The first drone strike outside of a declared war zone was conducted
more than 12 years ago, yet it was not until May 2013 that the
White House released a set of standards and procedures for
conducting such strikes.

Those guidelines offered little specificity, asserting that the U.S.
would only conduct a lethal strike outside of an, “area of active
hostilities” if a target represents a, “continuing, imminent threat
to U.S. persons” without providing any sense of the internal process
used to determine whether a suspect should be killed without being
indicted or tried.

The implicit message on drone strikes from the Obama
administration has been one of trust, but don’t verify.

The Intercept has obtained a cache of secret slides that provides a
window into the inner workings of the U.S. military’s kill/capture
operations at a key time in the evolution of the drone wars —
between 2011 and 2013.

The documents, which also outline the internal views of special
operations forces on the shortcomings and flaws of the drone
program, were provided by a source within the intelligence
community who worked on the types of operations and programs
described in the slides.

The Intercept granted the source’s request for anonymity because
the materials are classified and because the U.S. government has
engaged in aggressive prosecution of whistleblowers.

The stories in this series will refer to the source as, “the source.”

The source said he decided to provide these documents to
The Intercept because he believes the public has a right to
understand the process by which people are placed on kill
lists and ultimately assassinated on orders from the highest
echelons of the U.S. government.

“This outrageous explosion of watch listing — of monitoring people
and racking and stacking them on lists, assigning them numbers,
assigning them ‘baseball cards,’ assigning them death sentences
without notice, on a worldwide battlefield — it was, from the very
first instance, wrong,” the source said.

“We’re allowing this to happen. And by, ‘we’ I mean every
American citizen who has access to this information now, but
continues to do nothing about it.”

The Pentagon, White House, and Special Operations Command
all declined to comment.

A Defense Department spokesperson said, “We don’t comment
on the details of classified reports.”

The CIA and the U.S. military’s Joint Special Operations Command
(JSOC) operate parallel drone-based assassination programs, and
the secret documents should be viewed in the context of an intense
internal turf war over which entity should have supremacy in those
operations.

Two sets of slides focus on the military’s high-value targeting
campaign in Somalia and Yemen as it existed between 2011 and
2013, specifically the operations of a secretive unit, Task Force
48-4.

Additional documents on high-value kill/capture operations
in Afghanistan buttress previous accounts of how the Obama
administration masks the true number of civilians killed in
drone strikes by categorizing unidentified people killed in a
strike as enemies, even if they were not the intended targets.

The slides also paint a picture of a campaign in Afghanistan
aimed not only at eliminating al Qaeda and Taliban operatives,
but also at taking out members of other local armed groups.

One top-secret document shows how the terror, “watchlist”
appears in the terminals of personnel conducting drone
operations, linking unique codes associated with cellphone
SIM cards, and handsets, to specific individuals in order to
geo-locate them.

The United States and Lies of America

The United States and Lies of America

By Eric Hastey
Via - Akyas Easu
October 12, 2015

The, "Truth" Emerges.

Once you go down the rabbit hole, you will discover things that
most people don't know.

Here are 40 facts about the United States of America that most
people are absolutely clueless about....

1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the
IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE
U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967,
Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed.
Pg. 816)

3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921. (41 Stat. Ch.214 pg.
654)

4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents
Volume 29-No.4 pg. 113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288)

5. The United States does not have any employees because there
is no longer a United States. No more reorganizations. 200 years
of operating under bankruptcy its finally over. (Executive Order
12803) Do not personate one of the creditors or share holders or
you will go to Prison.18 U.S.C. 914

6. The FCC, CIA, FBI, NASA and all of the other alphabet gangs
were never part of the United States government. Even though
the "US Government" held shares of stock in the various Agencies.
(U.S. V. Strang , 254 US 491, Lewis v. US, 680 F.2d, 1239)

7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF.
The Application for a Social Security Number is the SS5 form. The
Department of the Treasury (IMF) issues the SS5 not the Social
Security Administration. The new SS5 forms do not state who or
what publishes them, the earlier SS5 forms state that they are
Department of the Treasury forms. You can get a copy of the SS5
you filled out by sending form SSA-L996 to the SS Administration.
(20 CFR chapter 111, subpart B 42 2.103 (b) (2) (2) Read the cites
above)

8. There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been
since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive

Keller v. PE 261 US 428, 1 Stat. 138-178)

9. There have not been any Judges in America since 1789. There
have just been Administrators. (FRC v. GE 281 US 464, Keller v. PE
261 US 428 1Stat. 138-178)

10. According to the GATT you must have a Social Security number.

World Monetary System. No one on this planet has ever been free.
This planet is a Slave Colony.

12. The UN is a One World Super Government.

13. No one on this planet has ever been free. This planet is a Slave
Colony. There has always been a One World Government. It is just
that now it is much better organized and has changed its name as
of 1945 to the United Nations.

14. New York City is defined in the Federal Regulations as the
United Nations. Rudolph Gulliani stated on C-Span that "New York
City was the capital of the World" and he was correct. (20 CFR
chapter 111, subpart B 422.103 (b) (2) (2)

15. Social Security is not insurance or a contract, nor is there a
Trust Fund. (Helvering v. Davis 301 US 619, Steward Co. V. Davis
301 US 548.)

16. Your Social Security check comes directly from the IMF which is
an Agency of the UN. (Look at it if you receive one. It should have
written on the top left United States Treasury.)

17. You own no property, slaves can't own property. Read the Deed
to the property that you think is yours. You are listed as a Tenant.

City Council of Baltimore. 32 U.S. 243)

32. The United States Government was not founded upon
Christianity. (Treaty of Tripoli 8 Stat 154.)

33. It is not the duty of the police to protect you. Their job is
to protect the Corporation and arrest code breakers. Sapp v.

36. The UN has financed the operations of the United States
government for over 50 years and now owns every man, women
and child in America. The UN also holds all of the Land in America
in Fee Simple.

37. The good news is we don't have to fulfill, "our" fictitious
obligations. You can discharge a fictitious obligation with
another's fictitious obligation.

38. The depression and World War II were a total farce. The
United States and various other companies were making loans
to others all over the World during the Depression. The building
of Germany's infrastructure in the 1930's including the Railroads
was financed by the United States. That way those who call
themselves "Kings," "Prime Ministers," and "Furor," could sit
back and play a game of chess using real people. Think of all of
the Americans and Germans who gave their lives thinking they
were defending their Countries which didn't even exist. The
millions of innocent people who died for nothing. Isn't it obvious
why Switzerland is never involved in these fiascoes? That is where
the, "Bank of International Settlements" is located. Wars are
manufactured to keep your eye off the ball. You have to have an
enemy to keep the illusion of, "Government" in place.

39. The, "United States" did not declare Independence from
Great Britain or King George.

40. The etymology of government means to control the mind.
From Latinised Greek gubernatio "management, government",
from Ancient Greek κυβερνισμός, κυβέρνησις (kybernismos,
kybernesis) "steering, pilotage, guiding", from κυβερνάω
(kybernao) "to steer, to drive, to guide, to act as a pilot" plus
Latin mente "mind".

Beware of False Prophets

Beware of False Prophets

September 30, 2015

Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing,
but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes
from thorns, or figs from thistles?

Even so, every good tree bringeth forth good fruit,
but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt
tree bring forth good fruit.

Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down
and cast into the fire.

Therefore, by their fruits ye shall know them.

(Matthew 7:15-20 KJV)

But there were also false prophets among the people,
just as there will be false teachers among you.

They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying
the sovereign Lord who bought them, bringing swift destruction
on themselves.

Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring
the way of truth into disrepute.

In their greed these teachers will exploit you with stories
they have made up.

Their condemnation has long been hanging over them,
and their destruction has not been sleeping.

Papal Blessing For Washington’s Global Terrorism

Papal Blessing For Washington’s Global Terrorism

By Finian Cunningham
Information Clearing House
September 28, 2015

Roman Catholic Pope Francis was hailed for his courage
in challenging the United States Congress on a range of
«leftwing» issues.

The pontiff can take some credit for raising issues
of social justice, reducing poverty, and homelessness,
averting deleterious environmental impacts, and
calling for more humane immigration policies.

But there was a flagrant omission in his address to the
American lawmakers, as there was in his earlier audience
with President Barack Obama.

Where was his forthright condemnation of Washington’s
rampant war-making and sponsorship of global terrorism?

The Bishop of Rome made no mention of US war-making
and conflict.

Silence is tacit acceptance, or even complicity.

And when one of the world’s foremost religious leaders
keeps silent, that is as good as a blessing for the
warmongers.

Washington is, by far, the world’s greatest war-maker,
having conducted wars, subversions, coups, covert
insurgency, and counterinsurgency operations, in
almost every year over the seven decades since the
end of the Second World War, as documented by
American Historian William Blum.

Yet Pope Francis – Argentinian-born and from a continent
that has been ravaged by Washington state-sponsored
violence – did not speak truth to power while addressing
the US Capitol.

If Francis had excoriated the US rulers for their habitual
warmongering, he may not have received applause, and
standing ovations, but the Pope would have at least
spoken the truth at a critical juncture.

Pope Francis seemingly opted for discretion as being
the better part of valour.

A less charitable view is that the leader of the Catholic
Church lacked the courage to speak out in defence of
millions of victims of US-sponsored wars.

He told the chamber of the House:

«Our world is increasingly a place of violent conflict, hatred,
and brutal atrocities, committed even in the name of God
and of religion».

But it’s not enough to merely describe «a place of violent conflict».

What about specifying the causes of conflict such as regime
change or coveting natural resources?

What about actually citing the governments that are responsible
for unleashing, orchestrating, and fueling violence?

It’s not as if there is no evidence.

Far from it, the evidence of criminality is replete.

This is where the spiritual leader of Iran, Ayatollah Seyyed
Ali Khamenei, shows more mettle that the Catholic Pope.

In recent days, Ayatollah Khamenei addressed Muslims making
the annual Hajj pilgrimage by condemning the United States
as the main «source of war, bloodshed and devastation in the
world».

This is not a subjective matter of one «political perspective»
at variance with another.

It is an objective factual reality.

The US government is the primary source of war and violence in
the world over many decades, as the reference above to William
Blum attests.

Currently, the US is primarily complicit in sponsoring a covert
war in Syria, along with a coterie of allies and client regimes.

Given Washington’s primacy as the most powerful political entity,
it consequently bears the most responsibility for the devastation
in Syria.

Up to 12 million people have been made homeless in a four-year
conflict, which has resulted in some 250,000 deaths.

Elsewhere, in the past week, more than 230 civilians have been
massacred in Yemen by the foreign military coalition headed up
and armed by Washington.

The fighter jets and bombs dropped on Yemen by Saudi pilots and
other Arab nationals are supplied and coordinated by the American
military.

Washington has also provided the political and diplomatic
cover for the six-month-long slaughter in that country.

Make no mistake, this is a US-sponsored criminal war on
the people of Yemen.

Whole families have been massacred in residential homes
deliberately targeted by American warplanes.

Hospitals, aid convoys, schools, markets, water and power
utilities have all been bombed, putting 80 per cent of Yemen’s
24 million population in dire humanitarian plight.

Only three days before the Pope addressed the US Congress,
30 civilians were reported killed by American-led coalition air
strikes in the provinces of Hajjah and Ibb.

In his address to Congress, Pope Francis did partially
condemn the international arms trade.

But his words were vague and scarcely directed at the
US in particular, as they should have been.

Here is what the Pope said:

«Being at the service of dialogue and peace also means being truly
determined to minimise and, in the long term, to end the many
armed conflicts throughout our world. Here we have to ask ourselves:
Why are deadly weapons being sold to those who plan to inflict untold
suffering on individuals and society? Sadly, the answer, as we all
know, is simply for money: money that is drenched in blood, often
innocent blood. In the face of this shameful and culpable silence, it
is our duty to confront the problem and to stop the arms trade».

Pope Francis’ point would have been more powerful and closer to the
truth if he had specified the US as the world’s biggest arms supplier
whose top clients include the dictatorships of Saudi Arabia and the
other Persian Gulf monarchies who together are committing heinous
war crimes in Yemen – at the very same time that he was speaking
to Congress.

Francis should have condemned the US government
for its criminality in no uncertain terms.

Yemen provides the irrefutable, horrendous facts
to support such a condemnation.

The Pope missed a crucial opportunity to confront corrupt power.

His vacuity only serves to obscure the bloodied hands
of the perpetrator.

Following his speech on Capitol Hill, the New York Times
reported thus:

«Pope Francis, the spiritual leader of 1.2 billion Catholics,
challenged Congress, and by extension the mightiest nation
in the world, on Thursday to break out of its cycle of paralysis
and use its power to heal the ‘open wounds’of a planet torn
by hatred, greed, poverty, and pollution».

So, according to the top US media outlet, the Pope is urging
Washington to «heal the world».

In other words, the Pontiff ends up reinforcing arrogant American
«exceptionalism» as a delusion that the nation is a force for good,
instead of being a rampant source of violence across the globe.

Pope Francis may be a breath of fresh air compared with his
predecessors from his humble embrace of the poor and socially
marginalised.

But he still retains the stench of sycophancy towards the
world’s biggest criminal state-sponsor of war and terrorism.

God Bless America indeed.

Mystical Allegory

Mystical Allegory

By Giovanni Ravioli Carlo
September 24, 2015

The Israel in the bible was never meant to be a physical nation
that exists in Palestine.

It is pure mythology and inner alchemy and the biblical stories
were never meant to be taken literally.

They are epics that express higher consciousness and the journey
that the kundalini energy takes up the spinal column during periods
of meditation.

The problem with the West is that they don't understand, "Mystical
Allegory" and they take their religious traditions and their bible at
face value and are not able to go beyond the historical narrative
and realize the mysticism.

They have deliberately been denied these esoteric revelations by,
"The Powers To Be" and this can no longer continue if humanity is
going to cross over to the next stage of evolution.

The bible has nothing to do with geo-politics, nations, or chosen
peoples.

It is a medical book on endocrinology and expresses very ancient
eastern yogic, tantric traditions.

The bible is about the art of meditation and higher consciousness,
not about a literal lineage of a race called, "Jews."

Zionism and its lies has to come to an end.

Knowledge is power, it always was, and always will be.

Public Servants

Public Servants

By Stephen Douglas
September 21, 2015

Public Servants, better known as Presidents, Senators, and
Congressman, are accountable to the public for whom they
are to serve.

Compensation should be determined proportionate to availability
within the budget after providing for the social welfare of the
country.

The standards to which they are held should be higher, not lower,
and the standard by which they are to subsist, should be a standard
that is proportionate to the median income, not the elite.

They should be stripped of all corporate ties and of all private
wealth.

Then they should be allowed to serve, with transparency and
accountability.

They should be governed as they govern, they should be imprisoned
for their crimes.

They should be made to live with the poor and walk in the streets
of the destitute.

They should be made to dress in common clothing and to eat
common food.

They should have to walk rather than drive.

They should be given no special treatment whatsoever and their
travel should be dictated as necessary by the people, with personal
and professional expenses published in a standardized format
available for all to scrutinize.

They should be made to answer to a citizen panel for their actions
on a weekly, monthly, and annual basis.

They should live paycheck to paycheck and their children should
attend public schools.

They should have to serve the country by showing their willingness
to put themselves and their loved ones on the front line of any
conflict or war into which they are willing to sign away the lives of
their countrymen.

They should be willing to partake firsthand in the blood lust and
murder that they agree to each and every time they sign the death
warrants of hundreds of thousands of innocent people in other
countries.

They should be stripped of the pride and arrogance that they carry
when they look down their noses at their fellow men and women
and they should be addressed only as servants, with respect and
dignity equal to that which they give.

To serve is not such a bad thing at all; it is an honor, but only when
it is done honorably.

World War III

World War III

By Expotera
September 19, 2015

World War III is now inevitable simply because the United States
of America, Great Britain, and Israel, continue dropping bombs
on other Countries, and on other People, and the World is now
realizing that the only way it is going to get the United States
of America, Great Britain, and Israel, to stop dropping bombs on
other Countries, and other People, is to start dropping bombs on
each on them, and on all of their people as well.

Now I know that most of my fellow Americans are simply to busy
taking and posting pictures of themselves on Social Media to even
care about any of this, but this newspaper headline/article pretty
much shows what the entire rest of the World now thinks about
the, "Middle East" and it also now shows who the real, "Axis of Evil"
is over in the Middle East as well.

So when Russia, China, and whoever else decides to start dropping
bombs on all of us over here in America, don't blame Russia, China,
or anyone else for this, because it will very clearly be the United
States of America, Great Britain, and Israel's, fucking fault....

The American Dream

The American Dream

By Infidel Actual
September 17, 2015

Fellow Countrymen,

The following will serve as my last will and testament for I am dying.

It will not be long now until I am gone.

No doctor, politician, miracle pill or technological advancement
has the ability to fix what is wrong with me.

I leave to you nothing that I have not given already.

I have given to you freedom, yet you have chosen slavery.

I have given to you liberty, yet you have chosen tyranny.

I have given you the ability to choose your own leaders and direct
your own destiny but you have allowed the system to become high
jacked leaving you no real choice at all.

My passing is a direct consequence of your actions.

I have given you freedom, the freedom to choose
the things that are best for you and your family.

I have given you the freedom to worship as you please,
the freedom to speak what you believe, to write what
you see fit, to gather as you’d like and to speak up to
any powers that would prohibit the above.

The freedom to defend yourself and those you love against
any and all who would seek to cause you harm, regardless
of their position.

I have given to you the freedom to peaceably live in your home
without it being invaded by government officials either physically
or through the means of technology.

I have given you the right to due process of the law, a right
dating back to the Magna Carta and the right to be judged
by your peers.

Most importantly I have given you the freedom to self-govern
in whichever locality you choose to live.

In spite of these freedoms you have chosen slavery.

Not slavery in the sense of chains and cages but a type much
more nefarious.

You have surrendered your ability to think for yourself and speak
what you believe for you know not what it is that you believe in.

You believe what you are told to believe and you think what
has already been thought for you.

You have surrendered your ability to defend yourselves because
you believe that someone else can protect you.

You have surrendered your ability to live peacefully
in your own homes.

Fear has caused you to openly welcome your would
be protectors whenever they see fit to stop by.

This same fear has led you to believe that you are safe while
others simply disappear taken by a government that has your
best interest at heart.

These protectors do not care for your survival.

They demand your loyalty.

That is not freedom it is slavery and the most dangerous cage
is that which you refuse to see.

I have given you liberty, yet under the guise of equality
you have chosen tyranny.

You have the liberty to succeed or fail based on your own merit.

Liberty is the ability to pursue your own happiness.

If you fail to catch it you should try harder.

Instead you choose to alter your definition of happiness and believe
that those who have worked to catch theirs should supplement yours.

You are not strong enough to succeed on your own, so you choose
leaders who promise to take from those who have.

When the takers have taken too much and the givers have no more
to give there will be bloodshed in the streets and the blood will be
on your hands.

Then you will know tyranny for you will no longer be useful
to the tyrants who actively sought your allegiance.

When you finally meet tyranny you will also know misery
and it will be too late.

I have given you principles, yet you choose to ignore them.

I have given you the resources to feed and warm hundreds
of millions, yet you choose to scoff at them.

These are all choices that you have made.

You have been lied to.

You have been led to believe that there are only two choices when
in reality you have been able to choose whatever and whoever you
desire all along.

The answer is not red or blue.

The direction is not left or right.

The answer is not forward or backwards.

The answer is liberty and it can still be yours.

I am over 200 years old but I do not have to die.

I am an idea and ideas can live forever.

They simply need to be rediscovered.

Yours Truly,

The American Dream

Compassion Fatigue

Compassion Fatigue

By Mazin Qumsiyeh
Adbusters.org
September 15, 2015

That old term, "Compassion Fatigue" came to my mind in the last
few weeks.

I was thinking on how humanity could descend into such barbarity
around the world.

How could African migrants risk their lives to leave countries
wrecked psychologically and economically by colonial Europeans,
only to arrive in the same continent that subjugated them?

How could Myanmar’s Rohingya Muslims be slaughtered in
the thousands by the majority Buddhists, yet these surviving
Muslims end up starving and dying in boats because they are
rejected by nearby countries with Muslim majorities, such as
Indonesia?

How could relatives of Jewish holocaust survivors engage in racism
and the ethnic cleansing of native Palestinians while the relatives
of Armenian holocaust survivors lead amazingly rich and productive
lives?

How could a very wealthy country like, “Saudi Arabia” (the quotes
are necessary because it is an imposed name for a country stolen
by the Saud Family) spend billions to support the US/Israeli agenda
of destruction and mayhem in countries like Yemen and Syria?

How could a pilot who claims to be Muslim drop bombs on Muslim
civilians?

How could a powerful and rich country like the USA be so occupied
by the Zionist lobby that they send their, “Police” to train in racism
and oppression in Apartheid Israel and then go back to kill blacks in
American cities?

How does the world tolerate the continued siege upon Gaza and
its starving and dying population and the largest open air prison
with 1.7 million inmates whose only crime is being born in Palestine?

How could the world stand by and let Egypt execute political
dissidents or imprison them for decades simply because they
demanded freedom from the entrenched military dictatorship
funded by US taxpayers?

So did humans develop compassion fatigue?

Does this possibility bode ill for our future as a species?

The Importance of September 11, 2001

The Importance of September 11, 2001

By Lt. Col. Shelton F. Lankford
Via - Marji Mullis
September 11, 2015

September 11, 2001 seems destined to be the watershed event of
our lives and the greatest test for our democracy in our lifetimes.

The Evidence of government complicity in the lead-up to the events,
the failure to respond during the event, and the astounding lack of
any meaningful investigation afterwards, as well as the ignoring of
evidence turned up by others that renders the official explanation
impossible, may signal the end of the American experiment.

It has been used to justify all manners of measure to legalize
repression at home and as a pretext for behaving as an aggressive
empire abroad.

Until we demand an independent, honest, and thorough investigation
and accountability for those who action and inaction led to those
events and the cover-up, our republic and our Constitution remain in
the gravest danger.

Wars For Nothing

Wars For Nothing

By Boggie

September 8, 2015

Do you know our earth is a mess
All the wars for nothing, it never ends

Everybody deserves a chance
All the souls, all the souls, can you hear them cry

That you live in peace does not mean
It’s okay to ignore all the pain

I see children joining the stars
Soldiers walk towards the dark

Let me ask

Can you justify all the eyes
That will never see daylight

Give me one good reason to hurt
A helpless soul, break a heart, kill a mind

Do you know how many innocents
Are hiding from punishment
For crimes they’d never commit

All alone, all alone

Do they deserve
To die for believing something else,
For having a face someone can’t stand

Do you know our earth is a mess

All the wars for nothing

It never ends

All the souls, all alone, hold them tight

All the souls, deserve a chance at life

The Decoupling of Intelligence From Consciousness

By Yuval Noah Harari

Throughout history, intelligence always went hand in hand
with consciousness.

The only intelligent entities were conscious entities.

The only ones who could play chess, drive vehicles, fight wars
and diagnose diseases were conscious - aware - human beings.

But intelligence is now decoupling from consciousness.

We are developing non-conscious algorithms that can play chess,
drive vehicles, fight wars and diagnose diseases better than us.

When the economy has to choose between intelligence
and consciousness, the economy will choose intelligence.

It has no real need for consciousness.

Within a century or two, Homo sapiens will disappear and
will be replaced by completely different kinds of beings.

Beings more different from us than we are different from
Neanderthals.

Sorting Through The Bullshit In America

Sorting Through The Bullshit In America

By John Grant
Opednews.com
August 28, 2015

One of the most salient features of our culture is that there is so
much bullshit. ... The realms of advertising and of public relations,
and the nowadays closely related realm of politics, are replete with
instances of bullshit so unmitigated that they serve among the most
indisputable and classic paradigms of the concept.

- Harry Frankfurt, Professor Emeritus of Philosophy,
Princeton University, Author of, "On Bullshit"

In a recent news story a New York Times reporter referred to,
"The Siren Call" of ISIS propaganda that motivated three teenage
Muslim girls to fly from Britain to ISIS-controlled Syria.

The girls were clearly frustrated, facing anti-Muslim prejudice
and cultural pressures unique to Muslim girls.

They clearly found no solace in, "The Siren Call" of western,
market-worshipping consumer society.

The New York Times reporter did not characterize western
culture this way, but it might be so characterized.

The so-called Free Market is becoming a sort of religion.

The girls seemed caught in a delusional double bind,
driven by hope for more satisfying lives.

"[T]he girls spoke of leaving behind an immoral society to search
for religious virtue and meaning," the Times story reports.

At least one of the girls is now married to an ISIS member.

The question that interests me is how much of the competing
pressures working on such vulnerable girls amounts to what
Professor Frankfurt calls, "Bullshit."

Bullshit is taking over the world.

It's certainly become a staple of our culture.

ISIS and other religious entities employ it masterfully,
via social media.

When the Times reporter uses the phrase, "Siren Call" she's
using an antiquated, poetic term that carries some judgmental
or patronizing spin.

Reduced to its essence, the ISIS siren call would seem to be a form
of what Professor Frankfurt calls bullshit, calculating statements
and claims that exhibit no concern for the truth; influence and
power is the goal.

And as Frankfurt told Jon Stewart, the stuff is piling up
higher every day.

Marketing, advertising and public relations reeks of it.

Religion makes it sound holy.

In the struggle for the bottom line, bullshit consumes
more and more of the informational oxygen in the room.

Polarization is the rule everywhere, leading to factional struggles
that assure bullshit an honored space, as a devotion to the serious
search for truth becomes more a quaint and naïve posture.

Well, that is, unless the intellectual search is in the service
of business efficiency, technological advancement or profit.

The fact is, bullshit rules.

In a recent essay in Harper's called "How College Sold Its Soul ...
and Surrendered to the Market," William Deresiewicz writes that
what we used to call a "liberal education" -- a curriculum that
emphasized accumulating a breadth of knowledge and the capacity
for critical thinking in order to produce a responsible citizen -- is
being winnowed out of existence and replaced by institutions that
emphasize training to be a winner in what is called "neo-liberalism"
-- that is, market-oriented capitalism.

"It is not the humanities per se that are under attack," he writes.
"It is learning: learning for its own sake, curiosity for its own sake,
ideas for their own sake."

As an example, he cites how Florida Governor Rick Scott,
"has singled out anthropology majors as something that his
state does not need more of."

Scott has proposed raising tuition costs at Florida State Universities
for liberal arts majors.

This hits close to home, since I graduated in 1973 from Florida State
University with a major in English and Creative Writing, and a minor
in Philosophy.

I can appreciate where Governor Scott is coming from.

As a Vietnam veteran on the limited GI Bill, if I'd had to
pay more tuition for an English degree than for a degree
in Engineering at Florida State back in 1971, maybe I
wouldn't now be writing critical essays like this one about
America's need for serious change.

Maybe I'd be designing robotic assembly lines to produce
more useless consumer items with reduced labor costs.

Maybe I'd be rich like Governor Scott, who founded a
very successful private, for-profit health-care company.

He resigned as CEO just before it was hit with 14 felony
fraud charges and had to pay a record $600 million in
fines.

Scott came out smelling like a rose and went on to be
a venture capitalist and governor of Florida.

Now he wants to squash liberal studies.

In Wisconsin, Governor Scott Walker, a presidential candidate,
wants to rewrite the mission statement of the University of
Wisconsin by eliminating references to, "Public Service and
Improving The Human Condition" and the phrase, "Basic To
Every Purpose of The System Is The Search For Truth."

According to Deresiewicz, "The university's mission would
henceforth be to, 'meet the state's workforce needs.'

It's noteworthy that Walker is the rare politician without a college
degree; he completed 94 of the required 128 credit hours toward
a bachelor's degree.

Son of a preacher, he credits an American Legion sponsored youth
leadership program called Badger Boys State with inspiring him to
pursue political office.

An aside is in order, here.

The use of the term liberal can get a bit confusing.

Liberal as in Bernie Sanders and liberal as in neo-liberal are,
of course, contradictory.

It reminds me of when I was traveling in Sandinista Nicaragua
in the eighties how confused I was when I learned the bloody
tyrant Anastasio Somoza had been with the Liberal Party, which
was opposed to the Conservative Party.

As one who "loves ideas for their own sake," I soon realized it
was good to be confused: It helped get beyond unquestioned
assumptions and allowed one to analyze things on their own
terms.

Concerning Somoza's father, also a Liberal tyrant, Franklin
Roosevelt famously said: "He's a bastard, but he's our bastard."

This is a key distinction to understanding American foreign policy.

The elder Somoza's career ended when he was shot in the head by
a patriotic restaurant busboy who agreed with FDR 100 percent.

It's common knowledge now that politicians love to worship at the
trough of the free market, since they must feed on its nutrients to
run their ever-longer and ever-more-expensive campaigns.

They live a paradox.

As they pander to free-market, "Winners" their real talents come to
the fore when they're forced to spread layers and layers of bullshit
to appease the growing community of working class, "Losers" in our
ruthless, neo-liberal free market.

This pressure will only increase, as it has been suggested the
rocket-like rise of technological advancement in the corporate
workplace may make up to 40% of the current workforce
superfluous in coming decades.

Some of these neo-liberal-market losers will become immune
to the bullshit.

Some will turn to people like Bernie Sanders.

Some will run amok with guns in huge macho trucks.

No one is better at bullshitting the TV-addled working man
and woman than Donald Trump.

Thanks to his personal billions, he's not beholden to the
usual fat cats, and his Reality-TV instincts are impeccable.

We know it's all bullshit, but he's so incredibly good
and entertaining at it it's impossible to turn away.

Better than anyone, he knows that presidential election campaigns
have become major American entertainment cycles.

Celebrities gouging and biting to obtain power.

What better Reality TV could anyone come up with?

Instead of a new car or a million bucks, the ultimate
winner gets to be President of the United States.

Benito Mussolini coined the term fascism from the ancient Roman
magistrates' symbol of power, the fasces, a battle axe surrounded
by sticks that represented the people huddling up to his power.

One man recently said of Trump, "He's my microphone."

Accordingly, the Trump symbol might be a silver microphone
surrounded by plastic cocktail stir sticks.

Deresiewicz again: "Neo-liberalism believes that we have reached
the end of history, a steady-state condition of free-market
capitalism that will go on replicating itself forever. The world
is not going to change, so we won't need young people to imagine
how it might. ...All we need to do is ... run faster and faster."

He tells how educating youth in ideas and thinking used to be
considered a critical function of an evolving society.

Then he concludes, "If there was ever a time that we needed
young people to imagine a different world, that time is now."

Deresiewicz cuts to the chase: "Instead of treating higher education
as a commodity, we need to treat it as a right. ...That means
resurrecting one of the great achievements of postwar American
society: high quality, low- or no-cost mass public higher education."

It's called leveling the playing field.

Then there's race.

Many thought the election of Barack Obama meant the end of
racial conflict in America.

Not so.

As someone recently pointed out, the Obama presidency was
actually an important milestone that kicked off a new period
of examination of race in America.

Donald Trump and his pallid-by-comparison Republican colleagues,
would all make, "America Great Again" by pumping up the military
even more and further empowering the neo-liberal financial,
"Killers" at the top -- to borrow Trump's favored characterization
for, "Dealmakers" like himself.

The choice is becoming stark:

More of the same neo-liberal, free-market empowerment of the
rich at the very top -- or thoughtful, serious social reform for the
betterment of all Americans.

For me, it's a no-brainer:

It's about more of the same bullshit ... or beginning to talk real sh*t
for a change.
