Remembering the Twins: The 20 Year Rewind

This is no happy… anniversary. 20 years ago, that infamous fateful morning of Tuesday, September 11, 2001, dark dignitaries stomped the hell out of American sovereignty with a pair of proverbial steel toe Docs. A series of four coordinated attacks were executed as if by some evil empire stalking us from a watchtower on a stormy bat mountain. An Islamist terrorist group called al-Qaeda took the credit & paraded around afterwards like little punks doing villainous victory laps. The Twin Tower duo was the biggest casualty.

Hey! Don’t forget to SHARE THIS…!

The indoctrinated individuals responsible, are who the word “diabolical” was invented to describe. They had been plotting this for years, passing along the “plans” like a treasure map to each other while secretly sending off sleepers to train at various domestic locations right in our backyards. If Hurricane Erin hadn’t drifted off the coast that morning, neither plane would have hit its intended target, & the damage would have been much less devastating. Today, would be the anniversary of an attempt, for, we would have had a much different historic outcome. Instead though, friends, Erin went off to sea, the hijackers were in luck, & our ass was grass.

Born one year before me, in 1973, the World Trade Center had been one of the tallest, most significant buildings in the world for almost 30 years. Beyond aesthetics, what went on within those walls, behind the scenes, in the airwaves, on floor after floor was extremely… like, enormously important in the scheme of things. Hence, why it was such a coveted target. Not to mention, it was a HIVE that buzzed with 1000s of daily regimens who had their lives tied into the place in one way or another. It was the centerpiece of NYC, a monumental melting pot for international commerce & trade. That said, most folks know exactly where they were & what they were doing the day of its dreadful demise. Where were YOU on 9/11/01?

Full disclosure? It was exactly one week before my 27th birthday. I was 100lbs soaking wet, rockin’ zebra-print 90s platform wedges & a skimpy outfit barely there… trickin‘ under the El train in North Philly on Kensington Avenue. It’s no secret why I was doing that. Kensington & Allegheny, better known as the infamous hellish K & A, was the drug mecca of Philly back then. You would be a fool to walk alone there at night, or even at 3 o’clock on a sunny afternoon, it was so undeniably precarious. That shot-out place was against anybody’s better judgement, you must have been high to hang out there. Anyway, that morning, by the time the second tower was hit, every Bodega along the avenue had a rabbit-eared TV set on outside in front of their store. If you were rolling down the street or walking the beat, you could watch the entire Ground Zero episode go down in real time block to block.

I remember feeling this creepy slow motion wave in the air. It took me a minute to figure out what was actually happening. A place full of drug dealers, Johns & hookers, where most people were shady, shifty, crooked, devious, & at odds with each other 24/7… suddenly became coagulated in this bizarre vibe of care & concern for their fellow man. It was way out of character for this beady-eyed hood with no soul. All these “good Samaritans” were popping out of woodwork tough loving us “girls” to get off the streets & go home to our families. We were all kinds of shook because we had no idea where the terrorists were gonna strike next. The Pentagon was targeted, then a plane on its way to the Capitol went down in Shanksville, PA, after all. We were like, copping our shit fast, & scrambling for cover, lol. Truth be told, all I cared about was getting my kicks before the shithouse went up in flames. Glad those days are over. For me, anyway.

Most Americans remember where they were & what they were doing that moment the first tower was hit & promptly televised thereafter. It was a surreal moment comparable in history to the assassinations of JFK, John Lennon & the questionable Princess Diana incident. They were all great big stark crazy shockers in that regard. We were just as fond of & smitten with NYC & Lady Liberty as the folks mentioned above. What the Twin Towers stood for, is what struck the cord, essentially. Freedom, life, liberty, & the pursuit of happiness… OUR FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS had been violated with no warning.

Back on scene, as if the first tower shocker wasn’t enough, while just about half of America had their eyes already on it…

1-mississipi, 2-mississipi, 3-mississipi…

17 minutes later, the SECOND tower was then hit! When does that ever happen? That one, locked it all in full throttle, I gotta say. The moment the second plane hit, we knew there wasn’t a snowball’s chance in hell, we were getting out of this one. Not to mention… our troops were being summoned to jet set to the Middle East pronto with a vengeance. There were no promises of our soldiers ever coming back alive or well again. The layers of tragedy from the morning of 911… that spun off & inseminated thereafter, burrowed deep.

We had two behemoth buildings falling to their tragic end with 1000s of lives in jeopardy. Front line workers, FDNY & NYPD were about to get slammed & lose lives. We had 1000s of sacrificial lambs going to war instantly with no warning. And this was what they call a real war, that would impact the entire infrastructure of humanity, the world, American society, communities, families, trade, commerce, the economy, homeland security, personal security, our elections, government, & our collective morale. The Military Industrial Complex was locked & loaded, ready for combat with bells on.

We were all in a state of dumbfounded disbelief. Especially those who were unfortunate enough to just so happen to be either in the building somewhere, on the block or in a square mile radius. The poor unlucky souls on any floor beyond the 90s, were comparable to the folks singing “Nearer My God to Thee” when the Titanic was going down. They had no chance of survival, hence you might recall the fatal despair of jumpers caught on camera. One after the other, folks plunging to their death. What a real life horror movie this was.

After the thundering crash of both towers, it was as if two ferocious volcanoes just erupted. Instead of hot lava, it was a growing massive thick dark cloud descending onto the crowded city streets like a monster Tsunami. Thick dense suffocating smog full of soot literally smacked faces & eyeballs. A blinding ferocious snow storm of sorts, of heavy wet cementy particle dust, began covering everything. The ominous layer of gray began blanketing not just people, places & things, but the very comprehension of how dangerously real it all truly was. As mentioned above, I lived in Philadelphia at the time, & I can testify to the fact that the air quality was compromised as far as 100 miles east for weeks.

In one fell swoop the sunny blue picture perfect dreamy September day, morphed right into New York City’s worst nightmare. Not to mention, a hellish landscape of terror, quite frankly… for daaaaaaays. Everything would eventually turn to a dangerous underground cavern of sorts, with live wires, leaks, tunnels & traps. The once bustling city streets were now trenches, like a scene out of a walking dead movie. People were disoriented, losing their sense of self, direction, day, time & space. They had inhaled dangerous dust & chemicals into their nasal passages, throat & lungs. With only pockets of blue peeking through, the thick dark black cloud consumed everything.

Harrowing & humbling, folks were just swallowed by it. It was the kind of demoralization you wouldn’t wish on even the most pompous prick. In the days that would follow, we would be forced to watch it all play out from a distance, via endless looping live broadcasts. It was heart-wrenching to have to sit in the bleachers with our hands tied, on couches, in kitchens, waiting rooms, stores, bars & restaurants across America & the world. Me, you ask? I wound up “on the block” at an all-girl watch party in orange “scrubs” & shower shoes at a women’s correctional facility. I got hemmed up on my 27th birthday, to be exact. Tell ya later

What was left of the two towers was now called “ground zero” of a war we were irreverently enrolled in. Everybody was shook. Blindsided to the max, we were hit with a Taliban sucker punch. The dinosaur of American dignity had been unceremoniously reduced to rubble in a snap. What an unbelievable injustice we would have to contend with in the coming days, months & years… 2 decades to be exact. And, in retrospect, it was not pretty. It was foul in every sense of the word. The entanglement with Afghanistan was a true succubus that was nothing short of damaging to the highest degree. We are STILL dealing with the consequences to this day & will be for a long while to come, unfortunately.

Fear, anger, sadness, stress, was in the air, literally & figuratively. If I recall correctly, the White House had an emergency broadcast system of sorts, flashing a code red for quite some time. The up-to-date alert status was posted in a running ribbon at the bottom of the TV screen on every single channel. And of course, it was repeatedly announced all over the news media for weeks, creating an all-inclusive worldwide panic. We were instructed to batten down hatches until further notice due to the extremity of it all.

It’s pretty unnerving not to be sure, exactly, who your neighbors are. Everyone was suspect. No one knew when & where sleeper cells would emerge. Isis was a lovely, famed Egyptian goddess until the moment the name turned to stone & dispersed into a bunch of insidious terrorists like roaches falling out of a ceiling. I wouldn’t be surprised if the term “suicide bomber” was officially inducted into Webster’s Dictionary. “Towel heads” were on our radar & shitlist. If you were an American A–rab… back then, all I could say is… ya better HIDE. Their stores, restaurants, families, children, places of worship… all in jeopardy. Americans were pissed. All they saw was red. There was no reasoning with them, no negotiations. An eye for an eye was gonna make everyone blind & there was nothing that would stop it.

Crossing America was like knocking down the heavyweight champion of the world. We were NOT going down without a fight. We might have been bruised up & bloody, but, Rocky Balboa was no joke. America had heart. And her heart had been stomped on. Lady Liberty was a woman scorned. We were betrayed, demons were summoned, we were provoked to no return & we were not taking any prisoners. A fight to the death was a certain inevitable fate. IT WAS PERSONAL. Al-Qaeda & the Taliban had targets on their backs. It was named the “war on terror” for Pete’s sake.

The attack on Afghanistan was a hotheaded payback. 200,000+ Afghan citizens (& counting) would be dead & gone by the end in 2021. Innocent women & children were barely spared. Guilty by association was proving true on the premise that virtually no one could be trusted at that point. Hundreds of suspects were captured & detained at Guantanamo Bay for a stint that the devil himself would orchestrate. Osama bin Laden was public enemy #1, wanted dead or alive & we were not stopping until he was strung up like a rabid dog in the town square for all to see. Our government wanted him strategically executed for the WORLD to witness, so that all would be privy to what happens to those who mess with the gangster government of the U. S. of motherf-ing A.

The Twin Towers may have ironically brought out the best of us to serve, protect & heroically unite to save our brethren. Most tragedies do bring out good & draw people together by nature. But the impending doom of that war brought out the straight… fire breathing dragon heart of America. It brought out the fangs, the claws, the whoop-ass. Like a hoodoo midnight chant on a Haitian burial ground… it woke the dead & summoned the monsters in men. Our soldiers turned into sociopathic killers on a justified murder mission. They were told, “Attack now… make amends later.” There was only one thing to think, say, do, eat, drink, breathe, & sleep… & that was RETALIATION. And that’s an order! Well, that’s never a good look, honestly. But it was the way the cookie crumbled back then. No pun intended.

The Twin Tower Tragedy on 9/11/01 was a moment in time that stretched over the course of two decades now. Kids who were just born that year are now turning 20. As I’m sure you would agree, a lot has changed since then. Ya think? 20 years ago, cell phones were barely in the hands of anybody. We were a very different society PRE 4 & 5G. In the past 20 years, technology has exploded, the internet became a staple, Google a household name. We, as a culture, have skyrocketed our entire system of survival to the max. Everything is bigger, better, more advanced, outstanding & amazing than it ever was before.

It took almost 15 solid years, but a shiny spankin’ new pimped out edition of the Twins shot right up out of Ground Zero with a vengeance like nothing we’ve ever seen before. Complete with memorial gardens, walls of tributes, fountains, a whole spectrum of sweet cutting edge fireproof, plane-proof, windproof, most importantly terrorist proof, architecture. It’s now probably THE SAFEST building to ever grace the city that never sleeps, lol. The most elite architects in the world were summoned to build it because it was America’s come back kid, after all. Nothing but the best for our precious Nation. (followed by a solidarity pound on the chest twice)

An exhausting long haul, the past two decades conjured endless conspiracy theories, that spun like wild rumors full of tawdry little lies out of a small sticks town. Fights broke out, controversy reigned supreme over the tip-toed around, touchy tender topic. Documentaries were diligently pieced together with forensic fortitude & meticulous savvy. To this day, no one even knows for sure what REALLY happened, do they? The REAL culprit remains anonymous &/or debatable, or even still at large. The TRUTH is like Seal Team 6 covert ops… CLASSIFIED. Someone must-a vowed in blood with a hood on in a basement to keep that shit under wraps. Unfortunately though, as time trailed on, if we were ever to heal & forgive… we had no choice but to accept that.

We may indeed have found ways to heal & forgive over these last 20 years, but in any case, we solemnly SWORE to never forget & we never have. How could we? It was a stark crazy tragedy that unfolded literally before our very eyes. It indeed captivated us all for a spell, united us on some level, gave us a collective purpose no one could deny. Black, white, the hodgepodge of the Big Apple encouraged the collective to come together regardless of race or nationality. In that moment… we were all just: Americans. Not to mention, the love & empathy that poured into America from around the world was immense. We were “the good guys” after all, & everybody wanted to help. Folks from all walks of life were sending assistance, service, love, prayers, food, first aid, friendship & compassion to their fellow man or woman in need regardless of diversity.

It was something to watch. It was something to behold. It was something to be proud of. It was something to record, document, film & capture. It was patriotism incarnate. It exemplified the beating, bleeding heart of the United States of America that we all, essentially, signed up for. Lady Liberty seemed to stand taller than she ever had… peering through a hazy smog in the cut, like an abandoned body guard from afar. It was like she had been staked out on the Hudson but fell asleep on the job. The bank was royally ROBBED & the jokers dressed as presidents (pun intended) got away.

It is unfortunate that historically, TRAGEDY is what compels humans to join together & shine the brightest. But until now, human destiny has been operating from this template. Our collective karmic imprint has evoked this. We as a culture of beings, souls in suits, in a vehicle marked “Homosapian,” bred adversity, backlash, upheaval & crisis thus far. It has been the human’s M.O. since the beginning of time. The ego had a real run, that’s for sure. That was his last hoo-ra of the 20th century that spilled over to this one, the 21st. But, as my new book’s title states… bye bye ego, this is GOD’S 21St Century now. Ciao!

It’s now exactly one week before my 47th birthday, I am not that 27-year-old gypsy streetwalker jailbird junkie anymore & just like me, America prevailed. A lot can happen in 20 years. We BOTH sure as shit came a long way from that catastrophic moment in time. Happy 20th Anniversary, 911. It may not be a celebration in the traditional sense of the word “happy,” but it is an opportune occasion to properly pay a fine tribute to the resilience of the American people & the triumphant anatomy of the human spirit. MLK once said that in the face of adversity, is when character is tested & we truly see what a person is made of. We bounced back & forged ahead to build a brighter future, & thus, we salute all those who made sacrifices on that doomed day 20 years ago & the many years thereafter. God Bless America & her healing precious heart. We have OVERCOME… & then some.

This article is DEDICATED TO:

The precious strong independent badass Afghan women… enduring a violent soulless misogynistic Taliban takeover as we speak. May they rise to the occasion, may the FORCE be with them, may the GOOD F-ing PREVAIL. Love always wins… this is GOD’S 21st century. Lightning might strike twice, but the resilience of the human spirit strikes eternal. WE STAND WITH YOU, AFGHAN WOMEN & GIRLS!!

The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy. —MLK Jr.

The War in Afghanistan: The Trillion Dollar Bonfire

The following few paragraphs are a little off the cuff. But, the iron is hot, so I’m striking. Honestly, this is probably another one of the best articles I ever wrote to date. It checks all boxes. Plus, it’s short, for all you attention deficit-ers on the roster. Don’t be shy, check it out!

That said, I actually did the math. The 20-year war that the tragedy of 911 cost American taxpayers was approx 150 million dollars A DAY. Yes, a day, & that calculates to almost ONE TRILLION dollars for the entire fruitless escapade. Strategically brainstormed by the “Military Industrial Complex,” this war’s ulterior motive was to grow more wealth for the greedy oligarchs (of all countries involved) behind the scenes, pulling the strings, for their own selfish gain. The hidden agenda here, was to profit at the cost of human lives. Fair & just, NO. Criminal, YES.

Fun Fact: The “military industrial complex” is a term referring to all the components of a nation’s military establishment, including the private businesses involved in producing weapons and other military equipment. The term was popularized by President Dwight D. Eisenhower, who used his last official speech to denounce the rise of the military industrial complex. Eisenhower warned that the growth of the defense industry posed a threat to democracy.

As far as I’m concerned, inflation of the USD is NOT due to anything other than this big ticket item: WAR.

Read that again. Why? Because, that’s a HUGE deal. The Federal Reserve had been printing money all this time not for us… but for a so-called “war” that was a total waste of time & energy. And this is a war in a long lineage of wars, combat missions, etc., that we have been paying for with hard-earned tax dollars for decades. Then, the media & powers that be, blame inflation on who or what they want us to believe caused it. It’s an inside job, people. Government overspending was never a president’s fault, per se, or a particular political party. It is not the fault of anything but the “Military Industrial Complex” & all its henchmen. Period. Hopefully no suits come banging at my door in the middle of the night for saying it.

Regarding the Afghan 20 Year War, the American machine has spent money on:

  • Deployment, travel, weaponry, equipment, housing, & sustenance for military personnel
  • Development & training of foreign military personnel
  • Accommodations & protection for their interpreters & all families involved

Money was spent way beyond the means of the American economy.

One million dollars a day seems a little steep, don’t ya think? What costs that much? We, will NEVER know the truth. Good thing it’s now ending, because it was obviously just a temporary fix, as we are now in the real-time process of witnessing. I’m no fan of being in or out of Afghanistan. It’s ALL, a humanitarian crisis… any way you slice it. The tawdry tribes of terrorists lurking over there with corrupted files & trashed moral compasses really need to attend a psilocybin retreat in the mountains of Tibet. They really need to seriously chill–the–F–out, meditate, do yoga, sip nectar, star gaze, bond with trees & get back in touch with their soul light. For god sake.

As for America… we have been playing the role of “temporary keeper” for these people for 20 years. When, essentially, what they really needed was a facilitator of transformation for every level of their infrastructure. What they really needed was & is a righteous diplomatic team of leaders who can meet them where they are, & get them on their feet as a nation, empower them, & activate their avatars. They MUST learn to begin to operate on a 21st century mindset made of proper industrious, equitable standards. Their version… that they seem so hell-bent on holding onto, is an outdated viking mentality of dictatorship & Draconian rule of law that is criminal, straight up. It’s not rocket science, what they desperately need is to implement an updated smart government & SUSTAIN IT!

Get with the program, weird controlling Isis variants & twisted Taliban cavemen with mental illness & illegal automatic weapons. They are like a bunch of immature, insecure, unloved & neglected school shooters who live in mom’s basement & play violent racy video games they boosted off the dark web.

America stuck its neck out, made senseless sacrifices, was wounded, traumatized & spent to the max, on every level, just to “help” the Afghan people “succeed.” Yet, at the end of the day, none of it mattered. The collective areas in the Middle Eastern district of Afghanistan… appear to look & feel exactly the same as when we first started the mission 20 years ago. One trillion dollars didn’t “buy” much, in my view. There is no evidence of value as far as I can see. No fundamental growth seems apparent, no infrastructure was built, no well-oiled operations of government, education, health care, community centers, libraries, sport & recreation centers, parks, arts, or theater.

Yeah, right, that even sounds awkward & not even applicable. Modern civilization seems to elude these folks somehow, trapped over there in a time warp of old paradigms. The towns & cities are still being bombed, looted, raped, & pillaged. It looks like a Third World dusty war zone filled will uncivilized people who are completely lumped together in some Godzilla movie running to escape. That’s not what pouring a trillion dollars into something should look like. 150 million dollars a day? That place should look like a golden, shimmering, impeccable OZ land by now with little birds that live in money trees & shit diamonds.

On the contrary, men, women, children, elders & the sick or disabled are now in danger, & being oppressed by a reckless regime that should have been completely wiped out to begin with when boots hit the ground 20 years ago. After tossing the bad apples, utilizing our military’s skills & abilities to help the Afghan people to grow & advance as a society, culture & government that mirrored American democracy, would have been the WISE thing to do. Instead, we spent countless days & dollars on teaching them how to prepare for battle, master combat & fight, & obviously, this did not work out as planned. If we ever encounter a situation like this again as a nation of citizens, we as an American collective unit should rightfully make an executive decision to do the wise thing, which turns out, is also the RIGHT THING. Bonus! War is obviously… not the answer. Ya think?

Love wins. The end.

  • The United States has spent more than 2.3 trillion dollars on the war in Afghanistan
  • Millions, if not billions were mismanaged & carelessly WASTED
  • 2400+ American service members have died, & 50,000+ have been wounded
  • 200,000+ Afghans have been killed, many of them civilians

FURTHER READING:

“We used to call the nexus of private interests and national defense the “military-industrial complex.” But that Cold War term no longer fits. “Industrial” does not capture the breadth of the activities involved. And “military” fails to describe the range of government policies and interests implicated. Over the past two decades we’ve seen transformations that include new government reliance on private security firms, revolutions in digital technology, a post-9/11 surge in the number of veterans, and the creation of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). What we have now could be called a “National Security Corporate Complex.” —https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/06/26/eisenhower-called-it-military-industrial-complex-its-vastly-bigger-now/

The Trump Show: the credits are rolling

Donald Trump is like an actor with no cast or crew. In the last 4 years, each time he ever showed up for a scene, his lines fell out of his mouth, off the cuff, only to the tune of how he felt in that moment. He barely seemed to use notes or a teleprompter or use anyone’s feedback or guidance for that matter. Gotta love the reality show edge this guy brought to the table. This was live real-time entertainment at its finest. No one ever seemed to fact check his countless crystal-clear errors either, but we got used to it, didn’t we? It was even refreshing. We knew we weren’t being played the business-as-usual kind of way. That was the refreshing part. We were just being played by a reality show host instead. lol

Demagogue: /ˈdɛməɡɒɡ/ a popular leader, a leader of a mob, or rabble-rouser. A political leader in a democracy who gains popularity by arousing the common people against elites… >>> especially through oratory that whips up the passions of crowds, appealing to emotion by scapegoating out-groups, exaggerating dangers to stoke fears, lying for emotional effect, or other rhetoric that tends to drown out reasoned deliberation and encourage fanatical popularity.<<< Demagogues overturn established norms of political conduct, or promise or threaten to do so.

Hmm, sound familiar?

Anyway, regarding the last 4 years with Mister Trump, while the peanut gallery made it look like he was making perfect sense many times, the American collective would get lost in the sauce of the proverbial bullshit soup. Between the “fake news” & the mainstream media complex at large, then the two parties completely at odds with each other over major policies, people were beginning to be very confused. The dog & pony show was turning into a circus of sorts that had all heads spinning.

In truth, Mister Trump was just a mouthpiece for that angry side of the fence that had been needing to be heard & valued for a long-drawn-out time now. You know, the overworked underpaid underdog of sorts. The working- or middle-class archetype who feels just so defeated by the system, essentially cheated by the system. Believe it or not… Trump stood for that group, because he was that group. Not the middle class/working class part, but the citizen part. Trump was the first president who was NOT a “dirty” politician. That fact alone, made him the spokesperson for the underdog American who was being torn down by a system that didn’t work. The downtrodden demographic with a broken spirit who had been caught in the “struggle” of the sham American Dream for way too long & who was fed the Eff up.

Here comes Mister Trump, the trailblazer, the guy with no filter, the guy with his own money, who wasn’t afraid to speak his mind & frankly didn’t care what people thought. It was great to see that kind of brazen, uncouth spirit take the world stage. He was like a phenomenon, in his own right, lol. He was spontaneous, unpredictable & clearly the “people’s choice” not the status quo’s. We needed that. We as a collective ATTRACTED that, whether you wish to agree or not. Frankly, no one can blame Trump for the sins of the government, the system that failed people. His presence as an elected official, just so happened to expose it all. Consequently, now the American collective feels they deserve some answers.

Do you blame them? I don’t. These people are our family members & neighbors & good hardworking well-meaning friends, community folks, churchgoers, small bizz owners, clerks, plumbers, receptionists, teachers, mail carriers. These people deserve the truth. Not from a president but from the system. Rather, they deserve answers from the “system” that has essentially failed them. The system of government here in America, the system of so-called democracy… has NOT lived up to its original blueprint. It’s original Divine blueprint, if you will. Refer to the following…

Excerpt plucked from {eraofpeace.org}

“The name AMERICA is an anagram for the I AM RACE.

This name was intended to reflect a race of God Conscious people comprised of ALL races, ALL nationalities, ALL cultures, ALL religions, ALL creeds and ALL Lifestyles. A race of people who are functioning within the full embrace of their I AM Presence reflecting Oneness, Divine Love, reverence for ALL life, and decisions and actions that perpetually reflect the highest good for ALL concerned.

Needless to say, with the manipulation of our fragmented and fear-based human egos, America has fallen far from the fulfillment of her Divine Destiny.

As a result of that failure, the portal of light through which our Founding Fathers were inspired to write our sacred documents became almost dormant. This severely limited the Divine Guidance that the people who have been responsible for governing this country were able to receive. In most instances, those governing this country and those electing those who govern this country have been oblivious of America’s Divine Destiny.

With the recent activation of Humanity’s Twelve 5th-Dimensional Crystalline Solar Strands of DNA, our 12:12 Catalyst Codes, our Transfiguration Codes, our Divine Body Templates, and The Awakening we experienced through the forced time-out (Covid style) and the Planetary Reboot we have thus achieved, Humanity’s mass consciousness has been elevated to a brand NEW level. This higher consciousness will allow the patterns for Divine Government to register in the conscious mind and Heart Flame of every Son and Daughter of God in ways we have not previously experienced.”

That said!

Mister Trump, on behalf of the Truthers, you have permission to get back to your penthouse brandishing your name stenciled in gold, put your feet up & have a cigar. Ya done good, sir. Ya played your part. Go on gracefully. No one likes a sore loser. And, for the love of God… take dear old Uncle Rudy with ya.

It’s time to have the system do some explaining. And that will now resume via the Biden camp. Democrat is a variation of the word democracy & the “American Democratic Model” is what has some explaining to do to the American collective at large. The farmer, the carpet salesman, the restaurant owner, the car wash franchisee, the bricklayer guy & his crew. These people deserve the TRUTH from the democracy that lied to them in the first place.

They are the only ones who can reverse the damage they themselves originally constructed. They are the only ones thus that can make it right. Trump played the role of tearing down all the masks they had been sporting for decades, exposing all the lies, shaking up the perfect illusion of government they thought they had locked down. I call him: “The best bull in the china shop ever!” Now… the people who started it all… that are now exposed, must DO SOMETHING about that, & stop using Trump as a scapegoat. 

46th Prez of United States of America

Tow the party line, Joe! That’s what we need from you right now. No more revile from boxing ring corners. Blend the colors, Joe & Joe’s carefully crafted TEAM… take us to new heights as a nation, where red & blue become the Emerald GREEN of the heart chakra. And we will be finally on our very way to REAL American freedom via the real American way! This is way beyond party lines.

Sing it with me now!

“Joy to the world, to all the boys and girls, joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea, joy to you and me!”

Happy New Year!

2021… we have arrived! With lots & lots of bells on.

December 21, 2020 was a very special winter solstice. It was a landmark event in the time-space continuum that will go down in history. It was the mark of the end of “The Dark Ages” of man. In Sanskrit, it is called the Kali Yuga: the age of conflict. We have been in a string of dark ages for quite some time. On 12.21.20, humanity officially birthed the Age of Aquarius. In Sanskrit, it is called Satya Yuga or Krita Yuga, which is the age of truth, virtue and righteousness. The Ancient Atlantean ones lived in this age long ago, & now we have come full circle. Let us rejoice… for finally, humanity has come to this beautiful dawning of the ages.

Moral of the story:

When someone says they can’t breathe… HELP THEM.
#AllLivesMatter Black, Brown, White, Red, Orange, Yellow.

Racial or socio-economical profiling should be dead. HUMAN rights are at the center of this. We ALL deserve respect & equal treatment.

Regarding #BlackLivesMatter yes… Black & Brown lives certainly do need to be handled with more vigilance & premeditated carefulness. Why? Because similar to women & #metoo, The black & brown race just got equal rights not that long ago. White men have always been in a position of power & authority. That’s why there continues to be such a disparity between races & genders. The historic treatment for each is so different. Thus, old programs & patterns are still genetically & generationally lingering around via ghosts of the past & even via some folks that are still alive from oppression days.

Solution? Clean & clear. Clean & clear. Clean & clear. Karmic clearing. The paradigm of racism & inequality is definitely dying. This death is ACCELERATED, if you haven’t noticed 😳 now that it is 20/20 (the year of “perfect vision” when we all wake up).

No one can deny the seismic shift across the entire nation & world. Globally, it is time for all of us as a unit to collectively ACKNOWLEDGE our unconscious inequalities & begin to alchemize them into the real UNION our American democracy, the core principles of our freedom & the God Force actually stand for. “United we stand, divided we fall.” Remember that?

No more tolerance of racial & gender inequality, discrimination, mistreatment or injustice. Period. End of story.

Regarding “DE funding” Police Departments across the nation? That blanket action would devastate our society even further. It is not a yes or no question, & any gang of protesters that says so, is sorely misguided. We should rather, lower, funding to law enforcement agencies & redistribute monies to worthy organizations that we can then train & empower to proactively be called on to administer to our communities’ urgent needs. Issues such as: mental health, family planning, poverty, job placement, education, hunger, homelessness, domestic violence, addiction & substance abuse, should no longer be the jurisdiction of criminal policing with the use of firearms or strongarms.

We must formulate “on demand,” agencies that have a comparable status of authority to law enforcement agencies. If we build more compassionate departments of social service within our communities to help people with non-criminal issues, that can be used also as “first responders,” we will lower crime, essentially, in the long run. These issues are the culprits of “sin, sickness & disease,” if you will, anyway. These typically are the root causes of crime anyway. If we work to eradicate these issues internally from the core, we will thus subsequently eradicate or at least significantly reduce crime altogether. It’s not rocket science. My entire book “Decline of Civility,” is about these topics. Get your copy below.

Think about it… if weight is lifted off of these cops, less mistakes will be made because less resentment or contempt will ensue & the anger that typically leads to injustice, bad decisions, snap judgments, or excessive deadly force will no longer be a part of the equation. See how things work? It’s a simple domino effect across the board. When stress is reduced from police officers that do not have the skills & training in the first place, to deal with these kinds of domestic or psychological needs, we reduce the chances of confrontations gone wrong. Our law enforcement officers will no longer be expected to over perform beyond their pay grade or be expected to demonstrate skills they simply do not have.

By implementing a unified COMPARTMENTALIZED social service system with specialized agencies that work together for the common good & ultimately the safety, security & well-being of our communities, we achieve positive results. Each division, branch or agency will have an important role, a significant part to play in the community to meet a need & to address a real issue. These agencies will be specialized. They will be government run specialized agencies granted annual funding. Funding will then be dispensed equally & accordingly to all social service agencies in the circuit, up to & including the police department.

This call to action makes MOST SENSE. Whomever is out there on the front lines cursing & yelling at mayors & such, about dismantling the police force, needs to shut up & go home. These mayors, governors & senators are doing their very best to adjust a broken system. Have some respect. Have some common sense. Not everybody in the “system” has failed us. There are awesome people in office that have our backs & are intelligent, educated, wise & experienced enough to fill their roles to the fullest, go above & beyond the call of duty & blow expectations right out of the water. Let them do their jobs.

BE THE CHANGE you wish to see in the world.

It’s starts with you.

Life Is in the Transitions: Mastering Change at Any Age / September 14, 2020 by Bruce Feiler

“I believe we create every so-called illness in the body. The body like everything else in life is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. the body is always talking to us if we will only take the time to listen. Every cell within your body responds to every single thought you think and every word you speak. Continuous modes of thinking and speaking produce body behaviors and postures & ‘eases’ or diseases.

Not every mental equivalent is 100% true for everyone however it does give us a point of reference to begin our search for the cause of the disease. Many people working in alternative healing therapies use the ‘Heal your Body’ book all the time with their clients and find that the mental causes run 90 to 95% true.”

— “You can heal your life” by Louise Hay

The following are a list of probable mental patterns that create illnesses in the body. I will also list the new thought pattern, mantra or affirmation that can be used to clear the disease, & create health, but can also be used to prevent the disease, just as effectively. If you REALLY want to PROTECT YOURSELF during these risky times, make sure that you consciously repeat ALL the following “New Thought Patterns” over & over again daily, until you actually believe them all by default. Really engage your heart & mind, to FEEL the LOVE contained within these belief patterns.


Covid 19 Symptoms:

1. Influenza:

Probable cause: Response to mass negativity & beliefs. Fear. Belief in statistics.

New thought pattern: I am beyond group beliefs or the calendar. I am free from all congestion & Influence. (INFLUEN-za)

 

  1. Incurable:

Probable cause: Cannot be cured by outer means at this point. We must go within to affect the cure it came from nowhere and will go back from nowhere.

New thought pattern: Miracles happen every day. I go within to dis-SOLVE the pattern that created this and I now accept a divine healing. And so it is!

 

  1. Viral Infections:

Probable cause: Lack of joy flowing through life. Bitterness.

New Thought Pattern: I lovingly allow joy to flow freely in my life. I love me.

 

  1. Infection:

Probable cause: Irritation, anger, & annoyance.

New thought pattern: I choose to be peaceful & harmonious.

 

  1. Fever:

Probable Cause: Anger. Burning up.

New thought pattern: I am the cool, calm expression of peace & love.

 

  1. Respiratory ailments:

Probable cause: Fear of taking in life FULLY.

New thought pattern: I am safe. I love my life.

 

The LUNGS represent our capacity to take in or give out life. Problems with the lungs usually mean we are afraid to take in life or perhaps we feel we do not have the right to live life fully.

  1. Breathing problems:

Probable cause: Fear or refusal to take in life fully. Not feeling the right to take up space or even exist.

New thought pattern: I love life. It is safe to live. It is my birthright to live fully & freely. I am worth loving. I now choose to live life fully.

 

  1. Anxiety:

Probable cause: Not trusting the flow & process of life.

New thought pattern: I love & approve of myself & I trust the process of life. I am safe.

“Consensual Rape?” No such thing.

Yesterday, on the Senate floor, a former police officer & now Republican State Rep, Barry Hovis (white middle aged man), coined this term: “Consensual rape”  regarding the new recent legislation to BAN ABORTION. Wow. These words are a complete contradiction! Not to mention tone deaf to the utmost degree.

This new Abortion Law will criminalize abortion even in incest & rape cases. This man seems to think that MOST RAPES are DATE RAPES & he had the ignorant nerve to call date rape: “consensual rape.” 

https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2019/05/17/gop-lawmaker-used-phrase-consensual-rape-during-abortion-debate-he-says-he-misspoke/?noredirect=on&utm_term=.e18733089d58

We as a nation DIGRESS. First it is one step forward with the “MeToo” movement. And now it is TWO STEPS BACK. “Consensual Rape???? Really?? Not cool, U.S. legislators & several states in this unbelievable unconstitutional move to steal a woman’s right to her body. What has this America we live in, come to? I am beginning to be not so proud of living here anymore. I am so utterly disappointed in the part of our American nation & culture that is so unevolved & reckless. Doesn’t anybody remember the bloody back ally coat hanger days?

What ever happened to the separation of Church & State? And, please don’t try use the card: “SCIENCE proves that life begins at conception.” That still doesn’t change a woman’s right to personal autonomy wherefore she has the first & last say in her own moral aptitude regarding her womb.

“Separation of church and state” is paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson and used by others in expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution which reads: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”  —Online source

“Things that are truly pro-life:
– abolishing the death penalty
– vastly improved prenatal care
– universal health care
– vaccinations
– better gun laws

Things that are deeply hateful & not at all pro-life:
– this whole fucking travesty of a misogynistic Georgia abortion law”
