Pardon Leonard Peltier

Opportunity for Obama, our nation

Leonard Peltier has been confined in prison for more than 40 years. He was charged with the shooting-death of two FBI agents, Ronald Williams and Jack Coler, in the Pine Ridge Reservation in 1975. However, the facts around his case show a dismal miscarriage of justice. It looks like the only way Leonard Peltier will be free to go home to friends and family after all this time is by an executive clemency pardon from President Barack Obama.

His prison record has been exemplary, and he has excelled as a human rights and environmental rights activist, a nominee for six Nobel Peace prizes, an acclaimed artist, a mentor, an author, a great-grandfather who is simply a good, humble and wonderful human being.

One could learn more about him from his book, “Prison Writings — My Life Is My Sun Dance.” Archbishop Desmond Tutu stated that it is “A deeply moving and very disturbing story of a gross miscarriage of justice and an eloquent cri de coeur of Native American for redress and to be regarded as human beings with inalienable rights guaranteed under the United States Constitution, like any other citizens. We pray that it does not fall on deaf ears. America owes it to herself.”

A little more than 15 years ago, on International Human Rights Day, Dec. 10, 2000, I joined local activists that chartered two buses from Northampton to join thousands who walked and prayed in the streets of New York City for Truth and Reconciliation. Most everyone there was optimistic about President William Clinton granting Peltier clemency before leaving office.

However, when the Supreme Court chose George Bush Jr. as president, Clinton would no longer have Al Gore to protect him from the threat of criminal prosecution for having lied under oath regarding his affair with an intern. The political pressure at that time was quite intense.

In an unprecedented demonstration, approximately 500 federal agents marched to the White House in protest to keep Leonard Peltier in prison. President Clinton took the easy way out and kept him incarcerated and freed white collar criminal, Marc Rich.

Now that we are approaching another administration’s final hours, many are hopeful that President Obama will grant Peltier an executive clemency.

Peltier was beaten up and almost killed when transferred from one prison to another. His health has declined significantly. Currently, he is headed for surgery for an abdominal aortic aneurism. At 70 years old, many are wondering how much longer he can survive in prison.

Those supporting his freedom over the yeas have included such notable people and organizations as Dr. Helen Caldicott, The Dalai Lama, the late Nelson Mandela, the late Coretta Scott King, the Southern Christian Leadership Conference, Amnesty International, Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchu, Archbishop Tutu and other parliamentarians, and celebrated persons around the globe.

The only evidence against Peltier was the fact that he was present at the Jumping Bull ranch during the fatal shoot-out. There were more than 30 other individuals there on the day of the shooting, members and nonmembers of the American Indian Movement, (but only AIM members were prosecuted). Peltier is the only person who was convicted, sentenced, and imprisoned. And, today, the U.S. Attorney admits that no one knows who fired the fatal shots.

Judge Gerald Heaney of the Court of Appeals of the Eighth Circuit (who authored the decision denying a new trial), in reviewing withheld evidence and altered facts, has since voiced firm support for Peltier’s release. He also indicated that the FBI had engaged in improper tactics that played a major role in creating the circumstances for the shoot-out. He then sought clemency so justice can truly be served and promote healing with Native Americans and all concerned.

A film narrated by Robert Redford, “Incident At Oglala” documents the events landing Leonard in prison. One can watch and access this film at the International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee’s website www.WhoIsLeonardPeltier.info — plus, there you can keep updated on the campaign.

Concerned persons wishing to support executive clemency by President Obama should urge him to grant this tragically delayed pardon. One way to do this is by calling the White House comment line 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays at 202-456-1111.

As has often been said the history of our government’s actions with the first citizens of this country has been tragic at best, and oftentimes unconscionable. It is hard to imagine a case more deeply human and spiritually mandated for reconciliation for all nations within our nation and world beyond, than the case of Leonard Peltier.

1) A Time for Human Rights on Native Ground

A Time for Human Rights on Native Ground
By LOUISE ERDICH

MINNEAPOLIS – In 1977, fresh out of Dartmouth College’s Native American program, I got a job in Fargo, N.D. I worked only blocks from the federal court building, and one day, from my window, I saw a crowd collect near the courtroom entrance. I walked over to see what was happening and spotted a few friends I had grown up with in Wahpeton, N.D.

My political leanings were all surface, consisting mainly of fashion statements. During the 1973 siege at Wounded Knee and the subsequent murderous climate on Pine Ridge reservation in South Dakota, in which more than 60 Native people and two F.B.I. agents were killed, I had been trying to get good grades.

Now, here were my friends dressed in flamboyant vests, beads and black hats hung with eagle feathers. I, too, wore a hat, a brown Italian fedora, only my feather was a blue macaw’s. On the basis of our hats, rather than any political awareness, I joined the crowd entering the court building and became immediately drawn into the trial of Leonard Peltier.

I changed the hours in my job so that I could sit through the trial and listen carefully until at last the cases were presented. Once I’d heard it all, I was confident that not one scintilla of hard evidence linked Mr. Peltier to the murders of F.B.I. agents Jack Coler and Ronald Williams. When the jury came back with a guilty verdict I remember extreme shock, a surprise so visceral that I jumped up, shouted, and then found myself quietly weeping in the swirl of subsequent chaos. I had, then, no personal connection with Mr. Peltier. I was not persuaded of his innocence, but that was not the point. I was positive that on the basis of what I’d heard in court that there was reasonable doubt as to his guilt and that he should not have been convicted. My horror was for the United States judicial system.

The court system had been influenced, as had I, by the black hats and the feathers and the aura of paranoia. Only to me, these things were attractive. To others, the mood at the back of the courtroom and the drum beating in the street outside were threatening. No one at the time was capable of impartiality, or dedicated to discovering the truth.

Here are a few truths. There is no exact forensic evidence that links the rifle said to have been carried by Mr. Peltier to the weapon that caused the fatal injuries. There was no witness to the shooting of the F.B.I. agents. The young witnesses who placed Mr. Peltier, along with some 30 other people, in the vicinity of the crime scene have since insisted that they were coerced and intimidated by the F.B.I.

Subsequently, it appears that the F.B.I. sought to avenge the murders on the only person who could still be brought to trial after everyone else involved in the fatal episode was acquitted, by withholding and manipulating critical evidence.

During the next few weeks, President Clinton has an opportunity to demonstrate to Native American people and to the world that our country practices some of what it preaches about human rights. By extending clemency to Leonard Peltier, Mr. Clinton could make an enormous gesture of reparation and healing. Mr. Peltier’s release is urged by the European Parliament, Amnesty International, the Kennedy Memorial Center for Human Rights; by Nelson Mandela, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Rev. Jesse Jackson, the Dalai Lama; as well as Canada’s Assembly of First Nations, not to mention Native rights groups and ordinary citizens throughout the United States. As long as Leonard Peltier is imprisoned, our country’s relationship with its Native people is stained by ongoing dishonor, and our own human rights statements are undermined by hypocrisy.

After the Peltier trial, I immersed myself in writing and then motherhood. Having experienced some of the hysteria and hatreds of those times, I was ambivalent about Mr. Peltier and the attendant posturing of other leaders of the American Indian Movement. I was not a knee- jerk defense committee member, although I am a member of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe, as is Leonard Peltier. But I was haunted because of the high degree of reasonable doubt that existed in the evidence against him. Eventually, I wrote to Leonard Peltier.

He is not a killer and never was. How do I know this? Because of the person he has become. Leonard Peltier lives, physically half-destroyed, in Leavenworth Prison. He is 56 years old, and he has suffered a stroke and a jaw condition that left him in unalleviated pain. Everything has been stripped away from him. He is transparent now; 24 years in prison do that. There is no rage, there is no blame in him. If his life were based upon two murders, he could not have grown, as he has, into a spiritual force, a person of true humility and gentle humor. I believe the only way he could have survived is on the strength of his innocence.

Last summer, I walked my grandfather’s Turtle Mountain land, side- stepping wild prairie roses, flicking off wood ticks, snapping the dry tall stems of sage into a bundle I would wrap and keep through the winter. As I walked, the evening sun blazed beneath a low cloud and lighted all I saw with a shivering golden fire. I felt in that moment the vast blessing of my own freedom, and took out a letter I’d recently received from Leonard. Words are the soul to me, so I neatly folded the letter and buried it, there, in his home ground.

Leonard Peltier has paid a terrible price for all that the American Indian Movement was blamed for during the late 1970’s. While other AIM leaders have trekked to Hollywood, married, remarried, traveled first-class around the world and reaped the rewards of notoriety, Mr. Peltier has paid. He has paid for our nation’s savagery at Wounded Knee in 1890 and 1973, and for the shame of the F.B.I.’s treatment of Pine Ridge people. He has paid for the violence of the AIM “warriors” who trashed government offices, strutted, mugged, brandished weapons and used them. He has paid the debt for whoever actually did commit those murders. He has paid every day for 24 years. He has paid enough.

It is time to let him go home.

Louise Erdrich is the author of the forthcoming novel, “The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse.”


2) Excerpts from Leonard Peltier’s book

Published by St. Martins Press, NYC 1999

0312203543

The time has come for me to write, to set forth in words my personal testament– not because I’m planning to die, but because I’m planning to live.  This is the twenty-fourth year of my imprisonment for a crime I did not commit. I’m now just over fifty-four years old. I’ve been in here since I was thirty-one. I’ve been told I must live two lifetimes plus seven years before I get out of prison on my scheduled release date in the year 2041.  I don’t think I’ll make it.  I feel like I’ve lived a hundred lifetimes in prison already. And maybe I have. If my imprisonment does nothing more than educate an unknowing and uncaring public about the terrible conditions Native Americans and all indigenous people around the world continue to endure, then my suffering has has had–and continues to have–a purpose.  I know this. My life has a meaning. I believe Wakan Tanka, the Great Mystery of which we are all a part, has shaped each of our lives for a reason. I don’t know what that reason is. Maybe I’ll never know. But you don’t have to know the meaning of life to know that life has a meaning.

I acknowledge my inadequacies as a spokesman and my many imperfections as a human being. And yet, as the Elders taught me, speaking out is my first duty, my first obligation to myself and to my people. To speak your mind and heart is Indian Way.  This book is my own personal testament as best as I’ve been able to set it down under the circumstances. It was written down on a thousand scraps of paper in the eternal half-light of my prison nights. Each page catches my frame of mind–and heart–at some crucial moment. In truth, to a man in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, every moment is crucial.

It was never my intention in this life to become a symbol, a focus for the sufferings of my people. But all of my people are suffering, so I’m in no way special in that regard.  You must understand… I am ordinary. Painfully ordinary. This isn’t modesty. This is fact. Maybe you’re ordinary too. That ordinariness is our bond, you and I. The Creator made us this way. Imperfect. Inadequate. Ordinary.  Be thankful you weren’t cursed with perfection. If you were perfect, there’d be nothing for you to achieve with your life. Imperfection is the source of every action. This is both our curse and our blessing as human beings. Our very imperfection makes a holy life possible.  We’re not supposed to be perfect. We’re supposed to be useful.

==============================================

[page 114]

Someday the true reasons for their ill-conceived assault, what really was going on, will come out. The answer or answers, if they haven’t already been shredded, may lie in those 6,000+ FBI documents they admit having withheld to this day, both from us and from the American public, on grounds of “national security.” Lately, I understand, they claim those documents have been “lost.” Certainly it was no accident that the day before the gunfight at Oglala, the head of the nontraditional tribal government was signing over to the federal government one-eighth of the Pine Ridge reservation, an area reputedly rich in uranium deposits.

Many of us believe that the shoot-out at Oglala was specifically intended as a diversion to conceal that illegal deal, which wasn’t revealed to the public for nearly a year. The public furor over the death of the two agents also scotched a planned Congressional investigation of what had happened at Wounded Knee Two in 1973 and the subsequent Reign of Terror on Pine Ridge that led to the Oglala firefight on June 26, 1975.

The FBI’s later assertion that we ambushed its agents makes no sense. We had women cooking, kids playing outside, all of our belongings, clothing and personal items left behind. In fact, we now know (again, through the Freedom of Information Act) that one month prior to the firefight at Oglala, the FBI had issued an internal memo concerning “paramilitary law-enforcement operations” on the reservation. They had obviously long been gearing up for such an assault against us. And they just as obviously bungled it terribly, to their own subsequent grief as well as ours.

I can understand how the FBI hallows its own. To them, Coler and Willams are fallen comrades, heroes, tragic victims, martyrs. Yes, that I also understand. But we, too, hallow our own. We, too, have our fallen comrades, our heroes, our tragic victims, our martyrs…and we have them in countless numbers. I live with the wail of their voices in my inner ear. I hear them always. I can’t forget them. I refuse to forget them.

They are victims of the energy wars, as were agents Coler and Williams, as am I. And so are you, my friend, and your children and your children’s children. The FBI itself is a victim of the energy wars, having strayed far beyonds the bounds of legality and human decency in its misguided eagerness to serve the interests of the multinational invaders in their continuing assault upon the Mother Earth. All these things are acts of war against the Lakota people, against all Indian people, against all indigenous people everywhere, against all humanity. We must continue to oppose these forces of destruction with every fiber of our being, with every breath we take.


[page 172]

My defense committee and supporters have been pushing for many years for a congressional hearing on my entire case, and I’m told that there’s real hope for this in the near future. Scores of U.S. congressmen and Senators have given me their open support. But even a congressional hearing – no matter how revealing – will not in and of itself set me free. Only people of goodwill in the U.S. government, and in particular the president himself, can do that. I await their–and your–consideration and compassion.

I am an Indian man. My simple request is to live like one.

We Are Not Separate

We are not separate beings, you and I.
We are different strands of the same Being.

You are me and I am you
and we aer they and they are us.

This is how we’re meant to be,
each of us one,
each of us all.

You reach out across the void of Otherness to me
and you touch your own soul!

Forgiveness

Let us forgive the worst among us
because the worst is in ourselves,
the worst lives in each of us,
along with the best.

Let us forgive the worst
in each of us
and all of us
so that the best
in each of us
and all of us
may be free.

The Message

Silence, they say, is the voice of complicity.
But silence is impossible.
Silence screams.
Silence is a message,
just as doing nothing is an act.

Let who you are ring out and resonate
in every word and every deed.
Yes, become who you are.
There’s no sidestepping your own being
or your own responsibility.

What you do is who you are.
You are your own comeuppance.
You become your own message.

You are the message.

A look inside Phobos and Deimos: the moons of Mars

phobos-deimos

A look inside Phobos and Deimos: the moons of Mars

By Bart Jordan

March 20, 1997 The Dover Times – Le Mot Juste

 

Asaph Hall, a Naval Observatory astronomer, discovered the two Martian moons in 1877. He named them after the “moonsteed” sons of the Greek war god Ares (Mars): Phobos (Fear) and Deimos (Panic). Their sister Harmonia, was the goddess of music and represented harmony in all things – especially numbers. Full examination of the principal numbers associated with the distances, the dimensions, and the revolutions of the two moons would show that there is more than a natural harmony throughout.

 

What if the two moons of Mars were placed in orbit many moons ago? This is what the evidence suggests. To ascertain this, we have to delve into those measures which would be communicated via the mile, the kilometer, and the 24-hour clock – all of which we mistakenly take to be modern, not ancient.

 

Russian radio astronomer, I.S. Shklovskii, in his and Carl Sagan’s book, Intelligent Life in the Universe theorizes, “The ideas that the moons of Mars are artificial satellites may seem fantastic, at first glance. In my opinion, however, it merits serious consideration. A technical civilization substantially in advance of our own would certainly be capable of constructing and launching massive satellites.”

 

Commenting on the above, Carl Sagan said, “Conceivably, the capture and hallowing of a small asteroid may be technically more feasible than the construction in orbit of an artificial satellite with materials brought from the surface.” I concur, ad here is why. It has to do with the number 2277 and much beyond.

 

I noted that the synodical or apparent revolutions of the five planet’s in man’s immediate view were as follows: Saturn 378, Jupiter 399, Mars 780, Venus 584, and Mercury 116. The total number of days involved amounts to 2257. Add the Direction number to each: South 4, West 6, Center 2, East 3, and North 5, results in 20. The 2257 plus 20 comes to 2277, the combined minutes schedules for Phobos (459) and Deimos (1818). It also reflects the mean distance of Mars (227700000 kilometers) from the sun. Mere coincidence?

 

The dimensions of the Martian moons were unknown and could not be determined by telescope from Earth. Nonetheless, in 1944, at age 7, I gave my triaxial measures for Phobos and Deimos as an expression of my harmonious number 521746.251746 squared or 272219151211. The extrapolated numbers were and are 27 long, 22 wide and 19 deep kilometers for Phobos and 15 long, 12 wide, and 11 deep kilometers for Deimos. These measures had to await confirmation by NASA spacecraft. According to the Viking orbiters, I got six measures out of six right.

 

I have been asked repeatedly how I came to my harmonious number and what evidence I used to settle upon the six figures. To answer the question, I must ask patience of the reader. It requires going into the specific math I used to solve the problem.

 

I knew that there were 52 weeks in a menstrual year (364 nights) and that my newly deciphered Harmony of Spheres Diagram had two octaves or 25 notes, the mirror number of 52. Hence, my harmonious numbers had to involve 52 —-.25—-. The missing number had to be built upon 2277 as 22+77 and 22×77:

22+(77×22)+77

minus

47

is

1746

Note 47 (atomic number of silver, sacred to the moon). My harmonious number had to be 521746.251746 squared or 272219151211. Although Encyclopedia Britannica published my mile-kilometer measures for the distances from the satellites to the center of Mars, it chose not to publish my dimensions for the two moons, fearing the measures were too large.

Incidentally, there is a hidden 918 setting in the difference  between the dimensions: 27 22 19 minus 15 12 11 equals 12 10 08. 12x10x08 = 960. 960-12-10-08-1-2-1-0-0-8 = 918. We shall see later that 918 is crucial to the orbits of Phobos and Deimos.

Let us move on now and examine the exact method I used to determine the distances between the moons and Mar’s center. It is important to note from the outset that the method involves almost exclusively in viewpoint of Earth, not Mars. Again, I must ask the patience of the reader. The material is easy to understand but a bit tedious in the telling. We will proceed slowly but surely toward the conclusion as to why I chose the particular measures I did for the dimensions of the two moons.

From the viewpoint of Mars, Phobos rises in the West and sets in the East with an apparent revolution of 11 hours. The number 11 was very important to ancient cultures. It constituted the number of semitones before the 12th tone which was the octave. It still does. If the hand of Man were in it, a number of choice is 11. It had unique symmetry, reading identically west to east or east to west: 11, 121, 1331, 14641.

Note: 47 (atomic number of silver sacred to the moon) and 74 (silver mirrored)  equal 121.121 equals 14641.

The 14641 minus 26 (atomic number of iron, sacred to Mars) comes to 14615, the number of miles Deimos is from the center of Mars. 14615 divided by 2.5  (25 notes/10 fingers is 5846. The 5846 minus 26 comes to 5820. the number of miles Phobos is from Mar’s center.

Expressed in kilometers 23520 is the distance of Deimos from the center of Mars. The 23520 plus 55 (atomic weight of iron) comes to 23575. Likewise 9366 is the distance of Phobos from Mar’s center. The 9366 plus 55 comes to 9421.

 

Now I can answer the question as to the dimensions of Phobos and Deimos. I simply added all the figures: 14615, 5820, 23575, and 9421. They came to 53431. Starting with 11. I employed it as follows: 11 up by 1 to 12, up by 3 to 15, up by 4 to 19, up by 3 to 22, up by 5 to 27. This, together with my harmonious number given above, led me to settle upon those specific dimensions of 27 22 19 for Phobos and 15 12 11 for Deimos.

 

Editor’s note: Part 2 of this Le Mot Juste will run in next week’s edition


The above was published in the Dover Times (NH-USA) March 20, 1997

[Flyby News currently does not have Part 2 in our possession, but we will work on getting it, if possible.]

 

Bart Jordan’s article, The Moons of Mars,” published by QUEST For Knowledge (a British science publication) in 1997, was excerpted from his paper of 1944 and provided mathematical evidence that the moons of Mars were placed into orbit by a pre-ice age advanced civilization. Jordan also predicted the fifth moon of Uranus, which was known to the Homeric Greeks as Harmonia, and gave these calculations to Dr. Gerard Kuiper, who then identified the moon in 1948 (which he called Miranda after a heroine of Shakespeare). This moon renamed Miranda has a very interesting mark on its surface, which was witnessed by NASA’s Voyager 2 space mission, guided by Jordan. Check out this photo from NASA of a “chevron”. It looks like a big number 7, with new and old terrain.

Man behind the Martian moon theory

FN editor’s note: Bart Jordan’s sister mailed me a copy of following article; likely published by QUEST For Knowledge (a British science publication) , which published Moons of Mars. Note that Jordan, via Hammond Wright, had these four measures published in the statistical box of Encyclopaedia Britannica’s article on Mars, running from 1966 to 1973.

Man behind the Martian moon theory

 By Robert Kinnison

Featured in this week’s edition is Bart Jordan’s article on the Moons of Mars. What is of interest to us is that he is a classical guitarist by training and practice. He studied with the great Andres Segovia at El Escorial, the monastery outside Madrid. How he became involved with the Martian moons is a story in itself.

When he read Gulliver’s Travels at age seven, he noted that the author accorded two moons to Mars. The author, Jonathan Swift, was a contemporary of Newton who certainly knew nothing of two Martian moons. Swift wrote fiction but was surprisingly close to the truth. Jordan wanted to know the EXACT revolutions and distances of the two moons because he thought they might hold a key to their actual dimensions. Their dimensions after all, were the unknown.

After reading his article on the Moons of Mars and some of his earlier entries in this paper, I thought a question and answer format might be helpful to the reader.


Q. You documented your harmonious number from which you drew 27 22 19km for Phobos and 15 12 11km for Deimos. According to NASA, you got six unknowns out of six right. How do you feel about that?

A. I can only hope that a full review of my findings with regard t Phobos and Deimos will be taken up by some journal prepared to ask for commentary.

Q. You have proposed that the moons of Mars were culled from the Asteroid Belt between Jupiter and Mars. They were then positioned in chosen orbits about Mars. Who did this?

A. Man, a long time ago. All the paired arithmetic signatures I have exposed in my papers or my lectures are the work of man from Earth’s perspective.

Q. Can you furnish other examples of these paired arithmetic signatures?

A. Yes. 9366km as 9+366 and 23520km as 23+520 comes to 918. Phobos, Deimos, and Harmonia each take 280 days to be born, and 78 days is one tenth of 780 days for the apparent or synodical revolution of Mars: total 918.

Q. Is there a time signature which yields yet another time signature?

A. Decidedly! 27554s as 27+554 and 109075s as 109+075 yielding 765. We have 7.65h for Phobos’ revolution about Mars.

Q. Phobos 4591818 Deimos are given in minutes and easily memorized. What do you think of it as a tool for memory and cognition?

A. It speaks volumes as an intentionally unified time signature. It is well within the grasp of the common man’s cognitive capacity. I personally think it should be taught to every school child.

Q. Your Cesium Second Equation is the most spectacular of all the evidence you present in the paper. It’s four arithmetic signatures resolve into one. Man is clearly the author of the event. Was he content to show his arithmetic genius and technical prowess by installing two asteroid moons about Mars? If not, it certainly would have been enough! What else do you think he had in mind?

A. Ancient man’s arithmetic genius and technical prowess are obvious enough, if we can accept it. The marvel of it all is surpassing, ranging from its simplicity to its complexity. Man seems to be saying that we must not forget any of it. We must remember it all and keep it holy – from the Five Ancient Planets to the Cesium Second Equation. We have come this way before, along an atomic path which may have destroyed itself as we are doing now. Mars is a wasteland. I ask that Phobos and Deimos be viewed as a warning of our atomic and space technologies. We have choices. We have time. We have examples from which to learn: Phobos, Deimos, and Mars.

18 October, 2015 – Resource For Truth & Transformation

A sunrise takes us by surprise
yet never delays its coming,
its turning, its yearning
to mix life with color
and turn on the crystal
ball of Earth.

Editor’s Notes: Litmus Tests for Truth and Transformation was originally published by Flyby News on 08 October, 2015. It connects many dots that need to be seen as interrelated. Bart Jordan’s quote comes to mind on how “our future is in the past with no escape present.” Eventually the lies of NASA regarding the Apollo lunar missions will become known. The sooner we revisit our past and honor truth, our future and present may yet be saved. This issue also includes updated Critical News posted at FlybyNews.com, which is shared on facebook and google. Please study, research, and share this information to help awaken a critical mass of people. Our lives and other species may depend on our awakening to what is, and not simply what we want to believe..


Litmus Tests for Truth and Transformation

By Jonathan Mark

The litmus test for most anyone regarding their being a critical thinker, and honest, has to do with knowing about the events of September 11, 2001, and aftermath. War and energy has been the elites’ main choice to wrap themselves around their fears and make a deal with the devil, bringing our whole world toward a breaking point. So, if you can handle radical truth, we need to start strategizing on how to awaken the power and the awareness of the 99%. We are up against the mainstream media and a short sighted public with an almost impenetrable fear-controlled denial mechanism. They create their personal reality and divorce from our collective reality.

But too many honest 9-11 truth researchers restrict themselves from walking their talk. They ask people to expand their awareness about 9-11, but when asked to use critical thinking to see the scientific basis for truth on other issues, some do not see the connection. By 2019 and on the 50th anniversary of the Apollo lunar missions, a new litmus test will reach its zenith for those who can critically think and be free of fear-induced mythology. Yet it will take many out of their comfort zones. While many admit to the overwhelming evidence regarding JFK’s murder being an inside job and conspiracy, it is often treated like a separate issue, which is what 9-11 truth has become, its own Island. What will connect the public’s awareness to understand the significance of 9-11, the coup d’etat assassination of President John F. Kennedy, the false wars for terror, and annihilation of Earth’s ecosystem? Will it be a moon landing hoax?

“Dark Legacy – JFK and 9-11” (a film compilation produced by Flyby News in 2012) covers four key conspiracies, including the moon landing hoax. Near the end in the original version, which has a running time of 2:24:00, I proposed a truth and reconciliation movement where we can release all crimes by admission and resolution for a new beginning. Senator Mike Gravel’s proposal was also featured, a National Citizens’ Initiative for Democracy to amend the US Constitution to give, we, the people, a voice in our government. The reality of the moon landing military psychological operation will awaken many to a lifetime of deceptions. This could provide the impetus for truth to set us free.

NASA even today cannot send an astronaut safely beyond low Earth orbit, by 2019 more evidence of this reality will become better known. If you do not become at least skeptical of moon landing claims, you are being mind-controlled. Science and truth will eventually emerge, but it is aided when many can bypass their own comfort zones and do the research with an open and objective mind, especially by those who are already aware of the truth behind other deceptions. FlybyNews.com has extensive resources on the US 1969-1972 fraudulent lunar missions. The two ‘must see’ films are by Bart Sibrel, “A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Moon” and a film directed by David S. Percy, “What Happened On The Moon”, Part 1 on Analysis of the Lunar Photography and Part 2 on Environmental Dangers & The Trouble with Rockets.

‘In the early space age, Dr. Van Allen
was often asked the value of space exploration.
He sometimes replied with a impish smile,
“I make a good living at it.”‘

No Need for Natural Gas (NG) NO GOOD

Article written by Ted Cady on a list serve resisting the proposed Northeast expansion for a frack gas pipeline.. He shows how natural gas is a bridge too far for our environment and economy.

10955680_10206211925523376_3753674353706331849_nPlease do not forget the 2% tariff on electrical generation to pay for the pipeline.  If a 2% tariff was placed on electrical generation and used to improve energy efficiency (instead of paying for the pipeline) the beneficial impact, according to what I have read, would greatly exceed any benefit from the pipeline.  This is because the benefits are cumulative.  Each year more improvements would be made. thus adding to the ones done in prior years.  We could go to smart metering and other efficiencies that have significant beneficial impacts for the long term.  The pipeline will depreciate and the each year’s gas will be used up and gone.  In the end there will be no gas left in the Marcellus Play and we are left with an old leaky, potentially dangerous pipeline.

Regionally we do a lousy job of managing our fuels, especially for electrical generation.  We have 1 active, but under used LNG terminal in Everett , 1 off shore buoy  not used in years, another that has never been used, and 1 pipeline from Canaport LNG, St. John, New Brunswick that is only used in Winter for peaking power (It does not operate at all during most of the year, so its overall operating capacity is at about 10%).  We need additional supplies for peaking power during cold periods.  We used LNG for peaking last winter, which was very cold, and rates stayed relatively stable.  So, clearly we can do it by better planning.  This might involve building LNG storage facilities, as the UMass, Amherst heating plant and generating station has done, for some of the larger facilities.  That is much cheaper than building a pipeline.

The electric company management model is outmoded.  They have not figured out how to deal with alternative energy and energy conservation, and can only see their customer base eroding,  leading to lower profits.  Green Mountain Energy in Vermont is an electric company that has embraced alternative energy and is making money promoting it.  That type of forward thinking management is what is needed.  We do not need old think that wants to build more electrical generating capacity because that is the way it used to be done.

Back in the l970s we got into a lot of trouble because we became dependent on foreign oil (The Arab Oil Embargo).  We should have learned to husband what energy resources we have.  The Marcellus Play will run out in a few years.  This will make us more dependent than ever on imported energy.  We should import modestly to deal with peak use, but we should not sell to offshore users our energy future for immediate short term financial gain that benefits a few very wealthy corporations.

There has been talk of the gas pipeline as a bridge to supply energy until alternative energy and energy conservation fill the gap.  That is hog wash.  It will cause a significant delay in conservation and alternative energy efforts.  The harsh fact is that we are still at the end of the pipeline.  As Marcellus declines in output and other export facilities are built, such as the one in South Carolina, our natural gas prices will rise.  This will be unfortunate for those companies that switched to gas because it was cheaper.
