My personal take on gun control

People who've followed my blog for a while know I've participated in a lot of actions with Code Pink. I was actually arrested for disrupting a Senate Committee hearing featuring John "Death Squad" Negroponte. I like and respect Medea Benjamin, who was removed protesting an NRA news conference. I've carried anti-war banners with her, and she's done a lot of good work helping Palestinians. But I have to say I don't agree with her views on the NRA.

A while back when I lived in San Francisco I often went around carrying signs in high traffic areas, for no other reason than it seemed to be a lot better use of my time than to sit around moping about how I lost everything I ever cared about. One of the signs said something like, "Defend Our Bill of Rights." A tough old grandpa pulled up to me and called out, "Does that include the 2nd amendment?" in a cynical tone of voice. I replied, "Without that one I doubt we'd have the other nine for long!" He smiled and drove away, satisfied with my response.

Look, I wish we had no need for assault rifles, banana clips and what have you. They're for killing people. That's what they're designed to do. But you have to admit they also serve a peaceful purpose -- as a deterrent.

Let's assume for a minute that the Sandy Hook Shooting was not in fact a cynical manufactured attempt to disarm the public. And Adam Lanza didn't have access to an assault rifle. What's to stop him from rushing into the school with an axe, a chainsaw, a can of gasoline and a lighter ... see what I mean, folks? If you want to hurt a random bunch of people, there are several ways to go about it. If you want to take out a specific person (say, a bad guy) from a safe distance, a gun is the only way to go.

In the hands of a well-trained person, it is the great equalizer. But no one ever talks about the lives guns have actually saved, do they? And don't tell me I have nothing to fear from my government. The US government doesn't bring order to the countries it invades, it brings chaos. If you want to ban things that kill people, why not start with automobiles, cigarettes, and ... oh, yeah, WAR.

Interesting articles about Sandy Hook shooting

I found these articles on Educate Yourself:

How the Newtown Massacre Became a Mind-Control Television Event by Jon Rappoport (Dec. 18, 2012)

The Shootings, The Globalists and Gun Control: The 2nd Phase of Disarming Americans by Carolyn Hamlett (Dec. 17, 2012)

Ms. Hamlett mentions there may have possibly been "triggers" in the recent Batman movie pertaining to recent shootings. How interesting that I should come across these articles on Portland Indymedia today:

Sandy Hook Reference In Batman: Dark Knight Rises Movie

Jesse Ventura takes on the "Brain Invaders"

I was very happy to see Jesse take on this subject on his show "Conspiracy Theory" Monday night. Note that what they are talking about at around 5 min. into this video appears very much to be this technology demonstrated here: A gun that gags you

Step out of the crowd!

Here are some wonderful examples of people stepping out of the crowd to make a difference:

[You may remember my previous postings on the remarkable efforts of two wonderful ladies on a journey to disseminate information about what really happened on 9-11-01. You'll be glad to know they both made it to the East Coast, though they split up somewhere in the Midwest. This is a story about Rena's journey.]

Rider With a Cause: Islander Takes Journey for Truth

"[Johnny Barnes] is a Bermuda native found waving to passing traffic at the Foot of the Lane roundabout in Hamilton, Bermuda, from roughly 3:45 am to 10 am, every workday, rain or shine. A Bermuda institution mentioned in several guidebooks and profiled in a documentary film, he is known for waving and saying 'I love you, God loves you,' to passing commuters during the morning rush hour into Hamilton. Due to the unique layout of the island and its roads, nearly all drivers at rush hour coming from the western and southern areas of the island pass Barnes at the roundabout."

Is this stuff even for *real*?

Every once in a while (not nearly often enough, but still, more than most people) I have the good sense to step back and take an overview of "the big picture." What's going on in the world right now is really nutty. The news and information I've been getting from alternate news sources is even nuttier. If you would have told me 15 years ago I'd be worried about Satanists trying to take over the world and kill off about 95% of the population, I would have been very concerned about my future sanity. But after years of study and looking at the hard, cold, and perfectly available facts, that's pretty much what indicators are pointing to.

Look, Satanists are real. They themselves admit it and instead of being shunned for their anti-life, anti-human way of thinking, they end up at high levels of power and influence. They've developed stunning and provable connections with what we perceive to be the most powerful people on Earth. People aren't promoted for merit or talent, in fact I've noticed many people with those qualities seem to have been deliberately suppressed.

Instead what you see are people at the highest centers of power who are absolutely the least qualified to be there -- like page sexual harasser Mark Foley, who was chairman of the House Caucus on Missing and Exploited Children. You have celebrities who are absolutely the least qualified to be examples to our children on how to behave, and yet they are constantly kept in the public eye, while stories of truly decent people are marginalized and suppressed.

There is something really wrong going on here. It's pervaded not only our government but our entire culture. There are some really horrible people in the world and their connections to the people who make our laws and control our money are undeniable. Yeah, this shit's for real.

So what are we going to do about it? Are we just going to sit back and take it? I say, "no way!" I perceive there is an opposing force to these demons that is much more powerful, which resonates with all decent, loving people. It manifests itself through these same people, but it requires our awareness and willingness to do so. Let us strive to become more aware, spread that awareness, and exercise our will to say "no" to the very real monsters who threaten us.

Voting for lizards

“It comes from a very ancient democracy, you see..."

"You mean, it comes from a world of lizards?"

"No,” said Ford…”nothing so simple. Nothing anything like so straightforward. On its world, the people are people. The leaders are lizards. The people hate the lizards and the lizards rule the people."

"Odd," said Arthur, "I thought you said it was a democracy."

"I did," said Ford. "It is."

"So," said Arthur, hoping he wasn't sounding ridiculously obtuse, "why don't people get rid of the lizards?"

"It honestly doesn't occur to them," said Ford. "They've all got the vote, so they all pretty much assume that the government they've voted in more or less approximates to the government they want."

"You mean they actually vote for the lizards?"

"Oh yes," said Ford with a shrug, "of course."

"But," said Arthur, going for the big one again, "why?"

"Because if they didn't vote for a lizard," said Ford, "the wrong lizard might get in. Got any gin?"


"I said," said Ford, with an increasing air of urgency creeping into his voice, "have you got any gin?"

"I'll look. Tell me about the lizards."

Ford shrugged again.

"Some people say that the lizards are the best thing that ever happened to them," he said. "They're completely wrong of course, completely and utterly wrong, but someone's got to say it.”

What is chi? What can you do with it?

Chi can be a difficult concept for modern Westerners, because most people can't see or hear it. I'm sure most people can feel it though. I know I can. Star Wars fans might recognize it as "the Force." Yogis, martial artists, and Eastern healers are intimately familiar with it as "prana" (Sanskrit), "qi" (Chinese), or "ki" (Japanese). Dr. Wilhelm Reich called it "orgone." It's the life force that animates all things. The following video clip gives you an idea of the types of things a true master of chi can do.

Guess what? You can actually break up clouds, smog and other ominous things by using chi. If you've ever seen the movie "the Fisher King" you may remember Robin Williams and Jeff Bridges doing this in Central Park (but you don't have to be naked to do it!). My recommendation is to study as much as you can about chi. Modern day weapons are using artificial means to manipulate this force. But this force is intelligent, and would much rather be channeled for good than for greed ... and there's an endless supply. Be a good channeller and reap the rewards. My guess is that if you're reading this you're already highly adept at storing chi. Educate yourself, awareness is key.
