The Agenda Behind Bruce Jenner’s Transformation

In other words, it is about a complete reversal of gender roles. Simply by looking at our genetic make-up and the behavior of most mammals, one can observe that males are engineered to hunt, provide and protect while females are made to “nest”, care and nurture, While modern living has made these traits less dominant, they are nevertheless part of our core being. And mass media is heavily focusing on promoting the exact opposite of this. It is about the attacking the mind with messages that conflict with our natural inclinations.

People felt they couldn’t make mistakes without setting off one person in the organisation who was highly critical and judgmental — but also highly valued. Townsend said, “He was a shaming kind of guy, and people were walking on eggshells around him.”

Townsend had coaching sessions with the man and gave him the feedback, which the man promptly denied. “He said, “I’m not that way. I’ve got high standards. They just don’t appreciate my standards and aren’t willing to work hard. He described those complaining about him as ‘a bunch of complainers’.”

The man was so certain that the complaints were not true that he agreed to hear out his colleagues at a team meeting moderated by Townsend. The group sat at a conference table and told their stories. “By the fourth person, the man had tears in his eyes,” Townsend recalled.

In further coaching sessions, he admitted that his father was a critical man and he had learned to be mean to others so the father couldn’t get to him. The words of the team encouraged his self-reflection. “Within 30 days, he dropped the porcupine attitude and everything was fine,” Townsend said.

Messy plots, audience participation and uncertain endings: how digital storytelling revives the ancient art of gossip

Against a backdrop of monotonous labour and short lives, we commented on public behaviours and speculated on private tastes; we shared illicit information and carefully concealed the parts of our lives that marked out our differences. We soothed our friends with knowledge of their enemies, and sought advantage by releasing flattering information about ourselves. In short, we were masters of gossip.

Poring over the lives of mutual acquaintances, dissecting their every triumph and foible, is a wise strategy in small-scale communities which are always one lean season away from disaster.

Neuroscientists such as V S Ramachandran, Oliver Sacks and William Hirstein have all studied the way we build a sense of who we are, and it appears that the processes involved reflect the shifting, capricious narratives of gossip, too. Rather than work with any fixed sense of truth, we confabulate to fill in any gaps in our life story, and ‘repair’ our memories to make the plotlines of identity add up – erasing inconvenient truths, for example, or misattributing other people’s stories as our own, even generating detailed visual recollections of events that never took place.

“There is the odd effort by large American networks to make their handsome talking heads seem to be at the center of events, the most hilarious of which in my memory was CBS’s Dan Rather garbed in Afghan-style robes crawling around on the ground somewhere pretending to be secretly reporting something or other about Afghanistan, his soundman, lighting technician, cameraman, and make-up artist never making an appearance. Such absurdities lend theatrical flair to American news and probably help frustrated journalists stuck with million-dollar, talking-head jobs feel slightly useful, and you might say they are therapeutic, but they have nothing whatever to do with journalism.”


“Truthfulness and journalistic principles simply have no place in the intensely politically-charged atmosphere of America where no event and no utterance is without political dimensions.”

“As credibility and credulity have now become inextricably linked, one cannot survive very long without the other. Their façade continues to crumble and with it more desperate measures are sure to follow. This is why it is so important for them to find another believable script reader to spin their web of lies.”


“It will be interesting to see what becomes of Brian Williams. Whether he morphs into interviewing other actors on the red carpet or is converted into yet another gate keeper for the Illuminati in the alternative media, one must now be completely ensnared within the matrix before believing anything else this buffoon has to say.”

It is the right and the duty of everyone who seeks the truth to doubt, investigate and consider all available evidence. Wherever this doubting and investigating is forbidden; wherever authorities demand unquestioning belief – there is evidence of a profane arrogance, which arouses our suspicions. If those whose contentions are questioned had truth on their side, they would patiently answer all questions.

“American Sniper” lionizes the most despicable aspects of U.S. society—the gun culture, the blind adoration of the military, the belief that we have an innate right as a “Christian” nation to exterminate the “lesser breeds” of the earth, a grotesque hypermasculinity that banishes compassion and pity, a denial of inconvenient facts and historical truth, and a belittling of critical thinking and artistic expression.

Many Americans, especially white Americans trapped in a stagnant economy and a dysfunctional political system, yearn for the supposed moral renewal and rigid, militarized control the movie venerates. These passions, if realized, will extinguish what is left of our now-anemic open society.

What matters is harmonizing these tiny particles, in order to build a collective consensus, in order to force a science of behavior.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Why Obama Won’t Prosecute Torturers

“The Obama administration has used a legal doctrine called the state secrecy privilege to prevent victims of torture from using evidence of torture in civil actions against government officials.”



“But Obama’s best argument for letting matters rest is the principle against criminalizing politics. This is the idea that you don’t try to gain political advantage by prosecuting political opponents—as governments around the world do when authoritarian leaders seek to subvert democratic institutions.”

I think the above contention is shallow at best,  and falsely legitimizes the “two-party” politidrama.   Evidence indicates that both torturing presidents, Bush and Obama, work towards the same goals.

The public is in pervasive danger not because the police have been shackled, but because they have been unleashed. We’re dealing with a crisis of impunity, not one of impotence.


“… police are more frequently a threat to the persons and property of citizens than a protection for them…  The document focuses obsessively on potential threats to what it calls the “independence” of the police – which in substance means the possibility that they would have to answer to the public they supposedly protect, rather than the political class they actually serve.”

“Lozito was severely wounded by a knife-wielding murderer in a subway car while a gallant member of the NYPD cowered behind a protective partition.”

“After Lozito had subdued the assailant, the officer emerged and took him into custody, thereby qualifying for a commendation and earning plaudits in the press for his “heroism.” When Lozito sought redress from the city, he was told that the police did not have an enforceable duty to protect him, even when he was being hacked to death just feet away from an armed NYPD officer.”


“Exposing and condemning systematic violations of the Constitution and abuses of civil liberties by police do not constitute an “attack” on the police, but an exercise of what most Americans would regard as conscientious citizenship. Where the “local” police have become an unambiguous threat to the population, shouldn’t people do everything they can to prevent them from “receiving … additional Homeland Security funds, new equipment, and weaponry”?

Should We Just Follow Orders? Rules of Engagement for Resisting the Police State

“The thing you must remember is that we’ve entered an age of militarized police in which we’re no longer viewed as civilians but as enemy combatants.”


“What these incidents make clear is that anything short of compliance will now get you charged with any of the growing number of contempt charges (ranging from resisting arrest and interference to disorderly conduct, obstruction, and failure to obey a police order) that get trotted out anytime a citizen voices discontent with the government or challenges or even questions the authority of the powers that be—and that’s the best case scenario. The worst case scenario involves getting probed, poked, pinched, tasered, tackled, searched, seized, stripped, manhandled, arrested, shot, or killed.”

“Abuse is fundamentally a mentality. It is a mindset of entitlement. The abuser sees himself* as entitled. He is the center of the world, and he demands that his victim make him the center of her world. His goal is power and control over others. For him, power and control are his natural right, and he feels quite justified in using whatever means are necessary to obtain that power and control.”

Rational Reflections in the Sun

If a loved one  accused me of trying to murder him or her, I’d want to talk about it. ( If ANYBODY accused me of trying to murder him or her, I’d want to talk about it.)  I’d want to talk about it more than anything …if I were innocent.
If there existed recorded history of my prior attempts to control that person’s life, I’d be MORE inclined to desire a conversation about the accusations.  I’d be eager to discuss how my documented attempts to alter that person’s aspirations and activities had not progressed SO FAR! Much to the contrary, if I had previously sabotaged that person’s life, I would REALLY WANNA CLEAR MY NAME!  I would facilitate the discussion post-haste!  If I were innocent…
If that person kept meticulous records I would figure it an easy matter to clear my name and I would seek that conversation eagerly.   If I were innocent…
If I were a Christian, knowing the Bible says that if a person has “ought against me” I should go to him to make it right,  I’d go there post-haste…if I were innocent…
If my family members were suffering as a result of the claimed  ATTEMPTED MURDER, I’d go right away to talk to the accuser…if I were innocent.
If the accuser (loved or not…) required my input to complete a major task on behalf of all humanity? I’d go talk to him or her!  I’d go right away, if I were innocent…
If the accuser requested gifts  from me, I would not comply.  I would BEG that we talk about the accusations…if I were innocent.
If the accuser was absolutely wrong, and even if I had merely denigrated the accuser to family, friends, church, community and political allies, I would get on my knees and apologize, if I were innocent.
But, that’s just me.  And you know what my dad said about me…

Here are some markers to tell if we are in a “Jesus plus something:”

  • When we camp around it and fail to get up and follow the Holy Spirit when the cloud moves.
  • When it sparks a movement that evolves into a new church group, denomination, or cult with an authoritarian charismatic personality in at the top.
  • When it is taught at the exclusion of other biblical truths, resulting in imbalance.
  • When it fails to take in the whole counsel of scripture.
  • When many scattered and isolated verses are used as proof texts though the doctrine itself is not specifically taught in scripture.
  • When it garners a label.
  • When it stirs up carnal controversy.
  • When it makes you angry if challenged.
  • When one doctrine leads to another deception that becomes a further departure from orthodoxy.
  • When it is exaggerated and becomes the Gospel we preach.
  • When it appeals to something for Self. Seeking something for self is contrary to the call of Jesus to deny self, take up your cross and follow Him. Self-denial is merely a heart decision to pray, “Not my will, Lord, but Yours.”
  • When it becomes the abundance of our hearts and all we talk about. We can know what is in our hearts by what comes out of our mouths.
  • When we find ourselves going after revelation (or revelations) instead of the Lord Jesus—seeking more revelation of the revelation for the sake of knowing more revelation.
  • When we try to convert others to our way of thinking instead of to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
  • When it points to itself and not the Lord Jesus.
  • When it holds believers hostage to it rather than liberating them.
  • When what we preach is an “IT.” Jesus is not an “IT.”                                                                             By   Charles Elliott Newbold                                                                                                                          See more  here:

The Purchase of Our Republic

Americans know that something is wrong, deeply wrong. They see signs of the problem everywhere: income inequality, growing concentration and power of mega corporations, political donations/corruption, the absence of jobs with decent salaries, the explosion of the US prison population, healthcare costs, student loan debt, homelessness, etc. etc. However, the true causes and benefactors behind these problems are purposely hidden from view.

My take on it is that this is a dangerous trend.”

Doug Casey, of economic and social commentary renown offers this deduction about the sociopaths running the U.S.

“Conversely, statism and collectivism, by restricting liberty, tend to reward stupidity. Remember that political leaders are oriented toward controlling other people; they’re clever about it, but they’re basically stupid about the rest of reality. Nonetheless, their animal shrewdness is enough for them to gain and keep power over others. The immediate and direct consequences of that political power are gratifying for those who have it; the indirect and delayed consequences, however, are disastrous for everyone.

But wait. It sounds like stupidity is related to evil. Which it is. Stupidity is a signpost of evil. It’s why it often takes a while, when things are going badly, to determine whether you’re dealing with a knave or just a fool.”

According to the authors of a new book, The Confidence Code, featured in the new issue of The Atlantic, this gap isn’t  just a nuisance. It’s a “particular crisis for women.” They argue that it helps explain everything from why women don’t ask for raises as often as men (and when they do, they ask for less) to why the glass ceiling still seems so rock-solid.”

“The real hopeless victims of mental illness are to be found among those who appear to be most normal.

They are normal not in what may be called the absolute sense of the word; they are normal only in relation to a profoundly abnormal society. Their perfect adjustment to that abnormal society is a measure of their mental sickness. These millions of abnormally normal people, living without fuss in a society to which, if they were fully human beings, they ought not to be adjusted.” – Aldous Huxley – Brave New World Revisited

5:08 am

                             Isaac arranged for new internet at the house.  George is supposed to cancel Wild Blue and the new hook-up should happen on Friday.  Isaac is doing some really cool adult things.
                              Visible saw a glowing guy, somewhere in Asia I think.  Watching a guy glowing  right in front of you changes your life. The guy preached:  faith, certitude and determination.  “The very existence of such souls should be proof positive that there is a hidden kingdom of great power  that shapes our destinies; that can shape our destinies should we permit it to. He is living proof of what we can be, if we walk in the footsteps of any of the great ones.”   I knew a “great one”,  he was only a baby great-one at the time,  but I had never seen a great-one before so I followed him anyway.  (I also fell in love with him but that’s an entirely different story.)
                      My great-aunt Lillie kinda glowed, but not too much.  I saw her once with a two-inch fish-bone sticking out from her teeth and it was gross but she didn’t mind.  Lillie had a young mind, in a fat old body.  I could go to Lillie’s house at zero-dark-thirty and she was always ready for a ride.  My young woman-friends couldn’t be bothered with adventure, not with preening demanded  the next day!  My aunt Lillie was my best college-mate. She was a lonely old widow but she never stopped expecting life to be fun.  I had not yet believed it could be. I’m trying to channel her now.
                       I was raised in rigid darkness.  I was permitted fun but not permitted to choose it.  I was given books but not permitted to believe them.  I was inappropriate and unappealing;  Weight Watchers at ten years old!  (We only drank diet pop, cyclamate, saccharine, aspartame…all of the nasty chemicals meant to make us more physically attractive.)   I was taken to Disneyland.  I  believe Disneyland is evil.  I refused a shopping trip to Hong Kong.  I believe recreational shopping is evil.  I leave dinner early on New Year’s Eve to take my family to church.  (Man, my folks really hate when I do that.)  I have repeatedly refused the darkened “fun.”  But, I never glowed.  My sons glow.  The radiance of their presence changes lives.  They invest their power but do not fully buy into it.
                         My boys will usher us into a world that doesn’t require  football or anorexia.  Follow  the light, that’s always the message.   Shopping-queens advise me to become more spiritual.  That’s good advice.  I pray to glow more brightly than the trinkets in their “selfies.”  I pray to glow with love for poor people who do not get to go on trips and do not get to buy things.  I pray to glow with woman-honor reflected by those who have suffered for their testicle-less-ness.  I pray that the light of truth will overwhelm me to such an extent that shoppers-who-look-down-on-those-who-do-not-shop will laugh their asses off and have some fun.  Amen.

“Corporations and government are using information about us in a new – and newly insidious – way”

“Employing massive data files, much of the information taken from the Internet, they profile us, predict our good or bad character, credit worthiness, behavior, tastes, and spending habits – and take actions accordingly.”

“As a result, millions of Americans are now virtually incarcerated in algorithmic prisons.”

                         I’m not particularly sentimental anymore.  I’ve discarded tons of stuff that used to seem important.  Everything I value now fits in a cedar chest and my Pampered Chef bag from when Steve was trying to get me out of my torture-induced  slump.  (I also have a box of campaign memorabilia.  Seven generations of business cards and brochures designed by Isaac,  which I will sell to the Smithsonian when they set up his exhibit.)  In my cedar chest (it’s really my mom’s cedar chest,  she abandoned it full of love letters and t-shirts) is family history. It contains my great-grandma-Franz’s silver coffeepot, and my great-grandma-Fyvie’s silver cream and sugar set.
                         I have pictures of all my great-grandparents.   George lifted the chest and put it on 2 by 4’s to keep it from water damage when the river overflows  its banks. My Pampered Chef bag is the largest nylon object I’ve ever seen.  It holds fifty pounds of journals and evidence and I keep it by the door.

“People who have immersed themselves in the details and manifestations of this life, may have a wide or less wide awareness of what goes on down here but they know squat about elsewhere.”

“Here is the primary and most terrible disconnect of the majority of humanity; all their concerns are focused here, in a temporary zone that they are in the process of leaving from the moment they arrive.”

“It becomes glaringly obvious that the temporal realm is a location of sham and delusion and that there are much finer locations one can come to dwell in. In fact, one discovers that one can actually dwell in such locations while they ARE STILL HERE.”

Look, you guys are already in shock and you haven’t even thought about it yet.  Directed energy technology can make people decrepit and sick.  It can also make a hand draw a beautiful picture for the first time ever. They can nudge an elbow to miss a pass and make one quarterback perform better than another one.  The world is rigged. They could make deaf people hear but instead the technology is used to torture.  GET WITH IT.  (Even if you don’t yet recognize the well-documented electrical technology and its pervasiveness, you should remember these warnings from Sunday School.  You wanna be on the right side of history.)

“The hopelessness spreading across the country and planet is approaching epidemic levels. The adult sheep of this nation have made their bed and they should lie in it. But what about their children? I find it incomprehensible that any parent would not fight for their children’s survival.”

“We don’t have time for this!” exclaimed a police officer as he shot and killed a psychologically troubled, 90-pound teenage boy who had already been tasered and was pinned down beneath two other officers.”

For Police, Murder is a Time-Saving Device

“Vidal’s mother urged parents of emotionally troubled children not to place the lives of their loved ones at risk by inviting the intervention of armed strangers clothed in the supposed authority to kill: “Do not call the police department for help – because your son will probably be killed, like mine was.”

“Turn everything around one-hundred and eighty degrees and then proceed to rip the bottom out of every program they’re using to force the world to artificially-submit to all this tyranny they created in the first place.”

“Remember this is only one year’s worth of nightmares. I’ll list just some of the titles of what is discussed in just this one article to give you the mechanics of this picture of how much of our lives they are demanding the right to interfere with—which is why we must change the entire subject and put an end to even the possibility of their continued-existence.”

What if you were a privileged player in a rigged game…how would that change the way you think about yourself?



4:40 am


                              We are a stiff-necked people.  We are stubborn and self-righteous.  “Woe is me, for I am a stiff-necked woman and I dwell among a stiff-necked people.”   (They lie too, just like Isaiah’s generation.)  Saul was stiff-necked too, and self-righteous.  God knocked him off his high horse.  Cocky people will not continue with us.  Cockiness is not a character trait, so I can recognize it without “judging.”  Cockiness is an affected manner that prohibits others from asking questions.  Fonzie was cocky.  He was considered cool.  Nobody would dare to cross him.  Cockiness is a great mask.
                         My favorite masks are the educated ones.  There’s a specific demon that comes along with a diploma.  I used to see him in my eyes but he’s gone now.  I see him around the neighborhood sometimes.  As he digs deeper into someone’s soul, he becomes much of  the person’s face.  (This is called, “discerning spirits.”  On a clear day, you can discern forever. ) Religious-spirit-faces are drippy.  It’s pretty easy to see in their eyes that they’re going to try to make you better.  They start building prisons right away.  (“Know thy enemy.”)  It would be really fun to talk to other people who know about this stuff.  Wish I knew some Christians.
                         Also, the NSA discerns our spirits too, but to them it’s Science.  Selah.
                           I feel like I’m on a stake-out.  I did that once, in my car outside a vacant hotel where people were breaking in at night.  The owner was so embarrassed about his paranoia that he wouldn’t pay me until I reminded him how I said I’d never steal from him and I had assumed he would behave the same.  That embarrassed him worse.  He was in the Iraqi war in the Revolutionary Guard and he and I will be great friends.  I will help him do something.  Another story.  Even people who hate me think I’m interesting.
                         I feel like I’m in a stand-off on about twenty different fronts.  I can’t see myself losing on even one.  My confidence is not based on much “circumstantial evidence” but I have faith.  I have faith because I 1)  heard God tell me things, 2)  chose to believe God, and 3)  will soon BELIEVE HIM FOR REAL!  This is how faith works.  If I had not listened to God, I would be on thorazine or dead at my father’s hand.  God will soon intervene is such an obvious manner, that I am released from various prisons.  “Imminent.”   “Prepare ye the way of the Lord!”  That’s been my message since I was little.  My own uncle told me one time just what I could do with my cross and my Jesus.  I stand aside.  I’m on a stake-out smoking far too many cigarettes and watching for what might happen.  I live on coffee and beer and on my breaks I cook gourmet meals for the fine boys I defended in my book.  I watch out the window.  I listen to the animals.  My ear’s to the ground.  I can’t wait to write another book.  My next book will not contain the word “hate.”  Not even one time.

                          “I’ve got a big one burning in me, Lord.  Enlarge my heart  so I can express your burning truth with compassion and love.”    I  was going to call this rant “fucking hypocrites” but that’s not how my folks sign their cards so you might not know who I’m talking about.  About whom I speak.  I was invited to Christmas dinner.  I ,who have  publicly berated them demanding answers and accusing them of intentionally trying to destroy me…was invited to dinner.  I, who wasn’t even invited to my parents’ fiftieth anniversary party…(my brother apologized later) …have  been invited to the palace.  “If you tell a lie often enough, people will believe it.”  (Goebbels, I think)  I assume the truth must be at least as powerful.  I will continue to expect truth.
                         My quarantine from family events began  it seems, when I turned down a trip to Europe because I was running for Congress.  My dad came to my house every night for a week, trying to shame me, insisting I go  along.  His shame I can take, it’s the gift that keeps on giving.  I could not bear the shame of receiving campaign contributions and reneging on my responsibility to people who trusted me.   How long must I suffer his controlling bullshit?  He couldn’t make me a  junior-psychopath when I lived under his roof, how can he expect to do it now?
                         I am not angry though the burning in my chest is distinctly uncomfortable.  So uncomfortable that I think I will not sit on my parents’ couch for hours waiting for my brother’s family to show up.  I think I will not listen to the squeals of delight as tots open redundant presents.  I think I will hold out for the one present my rich parents will not part with.  Thank you for the invitation Mom, the boys may attend if they like.  I will not.  But do send some leftovers home with Isaac.  After all, we’re family.

D.C. officer charged with child porn confirmed dead after Potomac plunge

Washington was arrested last week after police said he took nude pictures of a runaway 15-year-old girl after she returned to her home. Police found numerous pictures of young women, including deleted photos of what appeared to two nude minors. He was charged with production of child pornography.”

Nice country Reagan left us, right?  A guy could  go to prison for taking pictures of his own granddaughter for Heaven’s sake!

People do not buy things because they want to have different things.  People buy things because they want to have different feelings.  Branding and advertising make us think that different things will give us better feelings.  It is our feelings that suck, not our stuff. Our stuff is pretty sufficient, at least  in America. Our feelings are most often mind-controlled by demons or advertising.   I like to feel pretty.  I  most often feel that way in a fine garment.  (As I recall.)  Garments will be distributed by  God according to the intentions of a person’s heart.  Our hearts will clothe us in the  raiment we wear to court.  It’s not good  defense strategy to be seen in flip-flops with your hands chained.  Jesus’ righteousness will clothe some, and they’ll be a wonder to behold.

I think dumb sociopaths don’t lie.  They know that to lie would be to expose their selfish motivations to a more perceptive consciousness.  I think dumb sociopaths refuse to talk. That would make them a lot smarter than me.  (I)
