History Researcher Michael Rivero: ALL Wars Are Bankers Wars

If true, this is astonishing revisionist history. The same furious, warmongering song and dance has been ongoing since at least this nation was founded, with its presidential heroes (those who tried to replace private bankster controlled “money” created by fiat via interest-bearing “loans” with with no-interest, government issued Treasury bills) all unsung and/or assasinated. General Smedley Baker, by the way, the man who trumpeted the idea that “War is a racket,” was a whistleblower in the system that he was hired to support. Worse, U.S. public land has been commandeered for bankster purposes.

A couple of time points I found:

16-18 … The interesting story of General Smedley Baker
21… see the “US Notes” intended to be issued by Kennedy
25… “Environmental programs to “Protect the Land” as a cover for using them as debt collateral
32… Central bank systems are systems of “obligation”

The final taboo: UFO? StarworksUSA conference, Laughlin NV, November 2014

In the last post, I mentioned that death may not be the final taboo, that this honor may belong to UFO, or ET, or “aliens” or the idea that humans are not alone in the universe of thinking, feeling, sensing beings! I find it heartwarming that at the StarworksUSA UFO conference my friend Joan and I attended this past weekend the “visitors” (or perhaps the original inhabitants, or those who co-evolve with us either on or above or under the planet’s surface) are increasingly referred to as beings rather than as “aliens.” That’s a good start, eh?

I’m interested in taboo. Always have been. Indeed, fascinated. Why? Because taboos establish the horizon line, that beyond which we dare not go. Or we think we daren’t go. But of course, we do go. In fact, there are some of us who, when something is identified as a taboo, whether or not consciously, we automatically point our attention in that direction! That’s where the juice is concentrated. That’s where “meaning” is uncovered.  So, death, for example, has always been on my radar.

UFO? Not so much. It wasn’t on my radar as a small child. However, altered states of consciousness were on my radar, and they were definitely taboo. I knew that because for some reason I knew I couldn’t tell my folks, or anyone else about my whooshing out of body while lying in my sleeping bag out in the back yard many a summer night. I would whoosh out into space, go places I no longer remember, and sometime later, whoosh back in. I never told anyone about these forays, nor why I wanted to sleep outside with only the stars for company.

Another young female named Ann, in this case, Anna McClure, has gone further into this taboo territory by telling her mother of her experience with beings from elsewhere in the night.

Times have changed!

Here she is, with her Mom, in the vendor room the StarworksUSA conference at the Aquarius Resort Casino and Hotel in Laughlin, Nevada.

Anna and her Mom

I was one of a number of people who wanted to purchase the sweet little book detailing her contact experience.

Anna's book

We all wanted her book for our grandchildren. I asked her to sign the book “to Kiera and Drew,” my grandkids. She did, and with the perfect phrase to go with it.

signing

Yes. LOOK UP! Instead, we busy ourselves here below, shuffling around on Earth, looking down, preoccupied with stuff.

Meanwhile, all sorts of amazing things seem to be happening, both within and without, above and below. From multidimensional experiences, to ESP to teleportation, to a major push for congressional hearings on the UFO presence, to tales about a Breakaway Civilization that’s going to Mars, is already on Mars, came from Mars, or whatever! I just saw today a post somewhere saying that the Martian landscape has been ruined by nuclear explosions, not once but twice! But when I googled it, couldn’t find anything new. The last time this was speculated was in 2011. Whatever!

Is this Mars info “true”? Or is it “disinfo,” or is it “info-laced-with-disinfo.” I have no idea. Which is why I presented, in my workshop at the Crones Counsel, a talk about the radical transformation in epistemology needed in this internet age, to absorb and integrate the swirl of conflicting and contradictory information and commentary with which we are bombarded, daily, hourly, minute-by-minute — not only about the possible ET presence, but Ukraine, ISIS, Syria, Putin, Iran, etc. etc. All these efforts to catch and hold our attention and plunge us into confusion work only when we have no detachment, no witness to our experience, no ability to keep opening, rather than trying like hell to torque and clamp ourselves into a “certain” belief system. Remember, our beliefs create a “conceptual helmet” which limits us. Let go of beliefs; let go limitation. Direct your attention to what kind of world you want to manifest, and start now, here, where you are, with the smallest thing, the one you can do. And watch the world rearrange to meet your changed expectations.

Okay, enough of that. Back to the UFO conference. At one point, my fellow traveler Joan handed me a piece of paper that I thought hilarious.

IMG_1538

Oops! Didn’t happen on November 9, 2014, so just change the year, to 2015! All sorts of stuff like this floats around UFO conferences, not to mention the internet!. All sorts of predictions of dire changes that we have to work our way through and around, like billiard balls, all aimed towards us, and they hurt when they thunk. Oops! I mean think. When we think we’ve been thunked by some kind of info/disinfo that instills FEAR: False Evidence Appearing Real.

Two presentations at the conference really excited me. The first by Stephen Bassett.

Screenshot 2014-11-21 15.50.51

Stephen is the perfect person to occupy the role he has chosen, that of being the attack dog/commander/and hilarious funny man who is in the business of going after the U.S. congress until it agrees to hold official hearings on the ET presence. As he says, “we don’t want to just ‘sorta win,’ we are going to win!” His indefatigable enthusiasm and determination is infectious. If you are going to order one DVD from this conference, it should be this one. NOW. Timing is of the essence: if we cooperate in getting a social media twitter campaign going, Bassett thinks we can get agreement from Congress by February or March 2015. (Conference DVDs not yet up on the StarworksUSA site. “Soon,” they say.)

The other presentation that I found of enormous value was the one by Ricardo Gonzales, a young Peruvian of great integrity and awareness.

rP6Ne1MQJcE62Y9__ANqammBXfHEA1It3Q_01mv71KQ

Paola Harris, the amazing and far-seeing organizer of this and other StarworksUSA conferences, has been a researcher and investigator in the field of Ufology for 40 years. She seems to know all the principals, and has personal relationships with many of them. So when she tells us that actual “spaceman” contact used to occur in the U.S. (George Adamski, and others, in the ’50s), then moved to Europe, and has now moved to South America, I believe her.

Other presentations, to me also worth mentioning, include those by Jaime Mausson, Regina Meredith, Grant Cameron, and Joe Buchman.

UnknownI only bought two books this year. The first I’ve already mentioned, Anna’s. The other one, by Ken Kasten, called The Secret Journey to Planet Serpo: A True Story of Interplanetary Travel, held me spellbound on both legs of the plane trip home. Indeed, I almost finished it, and except for two short naps onboard, hardly remember anything of the trip. Obviously, I found the book well worth reading. Joan and I also shared a meal and a number of short encounters with Ken, and found him to be a curious and engaging fellow traveler, someone that I get a sense is “in my tribe.” That doesn’t happen too often, and when it does, I love it!

I asked Ken, who has been attending UFO conferences for many years, why he hasn’t he been called upon as a presenter. He said, in a humble, non-defensive manner, that he thinks it’s because the Serpo story is just so “out of this world,” that not even the ufologists believe it!

So there’s censorship even in this unusually open-minded group? Go figure.

From Timothy Leary to Brittany Maynard: Participating Fully in the Deathing Process

One of the underlying themes of the archetype of Crone, is, inescapably, that of death, deathing, dying. We are all going towards that graduation point, but those of us who call ourselves “crone” realize that our own personal death will come sooner rather than later.

This year’s Crones Counsel featured two workshops on the subject of death and dying. The one I attended featured especially the logistics of “getting one’s life in order” (so that others wouldn’t have to go through the mess afterwards!).

The subject of “death” itself didn’t seem to faze anyone in the large crone circle gathered to discuss the topic. Interesting how this perhaps final taboo in our culture (or is it? see next post, on UFO), the fear of death, is beginning to be breached.

MV5BNTY3MDk5ODE5OV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTcwMDgyNzkxMQ@@._V1_SY317_CR5,0,214,317_AL_Last night I watched a documentary on Tim Leary’s life by Paul Davids that I brought back from the UFO conference. Very interesting, how the film took me through the ’60s and ’70s again, set me right back inside that storied time — and then, mirable dictu, switching to Leary’s death and dying, I discover that he was “thrilled” when he got his diagnosis of terminal prostate cancer. He didn’t look upon death as the end. No way. To him it presented the next great adventure for this adventurer who dared to go where most of us can’t even imagine, including escaping from a prison by going hand over hand across a telephone wire, despite his recognition, midway, that he just didn’t have the strength to make it; and of course, a larger energy kicked in at precisely that moment. He did make it, in spades. And went on to many more adventures worldwide.

What struck me about the movie most was Ram Das’s remark, that Leary really wasn’t “spiritual,” but was instead the “quintessential materialist,” since he had decided to have his head (head? or whole body? unknown at that point, but answered, in a grisly way, in this documentary) dry iced for a trip into outer space, hoping that some day it — or, more precisely, his brain — might come to life again.

In any case, Leary’s attitude towards his own death was quite different from Brittany Maynard’s. He was thrilled to go; she was not. After all, he was 76 years old, she only 30 years old — in fact not quite. A Scorpio, born on November 19, 1984 with the Sun in a wide conjunction to Saturn, she died during her first Saturn return, as the quintessential Scorpio, who embodied, in a beautiful and intensely potent manner, the death/rebirth theme that this most powerful of signs presents. The Death with Dignity movement has not been the same since. Thank you Brittany Maynard. This video, the first of many that she made prior to death, was released in honor of her 30th birthday.

Just Why is (today’s) Wheat So Toxic?

While enjoying the lentil burger with gluten-free bun that my young podmate Leah had graciously made for me, our little two-house ecovillage pod was discussing the toxicity of wheat during the evening meal. Leah, a graduate student in environmental science, says she’s researched the science, and concludes that GMO isn’t bad for you; her objection is to the fact that GMO plays into Monsanto’s campaign to own seeds. Meanwhile, we all wonder why gluten seems to be the problem now, whereas before it wasn’t; nor is it now in at least some countries outside the U.S. Then, last night, I came upon this article. Outrageous.

Crops Are Drenched with Round-Up Pesticide Right Before Harvest

And, just in case you didn’t get it the first time, here’s another one on the same subject, that goes into more detail.

The Real Reason Wheat Is Toxic (it’s not the gluten)

Whatever it is or isn’t, all I know is that when I stopped consuming wheat and wheat products back in 2001 my life changed. No more colds. No more mucusy gunk. Feel lighter, freer, way more alive.

So, though the photo below may make your mouth water, and while it may conjure memories of grandma’s plump dappled arms kneading daily loaves of dappled bread, think twice before consuming.

Let us open the mind to the open universe —

This afternoon I posted pix from Zion after framing this glorious national park within its tiny (enormous) canyon inside the tiny (humungous) Colorado Plateau. Just to get perspective. So much beauty in each speck of sand!

Here’s an even larger, and larger, and larger — frame, within another frame, and yet another, and another . . . no end to the mystery; nor to the beauty, or bounty, of the living universe.

This interruption of business as usual sent chills up my spine . . .

. . . and that’s just the way I like it. No matter how reasonable and rational our hero, Elizabeth Warren, she is still just a (particularly adroit) player in the usual political game. The contrast between her demeanor and the magnificent wail that surges up from deep inside Earth herself through this Native American man, is stunning.
