The Galactic Transcripts

It’s the 1950’s. A man sees a cigar-shaped UFO, subsequently becomes involved in receiving channeled messages from intergalactic “human” beings, and then, within hours of his death, writes ‘Border to Infinity’ as the final entry in his personal journal. What does it all mean? And could these events be interconnected?

The Galactic Transcripts will take you on a journey that is as provocative as it is mysterious. Its thirty-seven transmissions are channeled from a non-earth, alien group who identify themselves as members of the Space Brotherhood – messages imparted by representatives known as Monka, Korton, Traenor, Klala, Hatton, Lalur, and Soltec.

Learn what the Space Brotherhood also has to say about other organizations such as the Galactic Counsel, Confederation of Galaxies, Counsel of Lords, Solar Tribunal, and the Solar Cross Foundation.

The Galactic Transcripts offer us descriptions of other worlds, their inhabitants, morals, ethics, and histories. They even forewarn of the coming cleansing of Earth and the cataclysms preceding it. Other messages shed light on the original colonization of Earth, telepathic communication, the power of love, the program of the Radiant One, and much more.

Those who have read The Galactic Transcripts have found them to be life-altering, profound, inspirational, transformative. Will they have that effect on you? Open your mind and allow the transcripts to take you beyond the limitations of our world and into new, undiscovered worlds beyond our galaxy.

The Last of Life

Yes, we know. It’s been a while. A long while.

What can we say other than life has gotten in the way? That and perhaps we grew a little bored (and even a little disheartened) with finding new and clever ways of describing the same old MOWB-y crab bucket mentality that continues to override humanitarian intelligence in those determined to claw their way up the pyramid of world power. Fortunately, the pundits have done a pretty good job of taking on the powers that be without us.

When something changes enough to inspire us, we'll likely leap right back into the driver’s seat and take you for a ride along the scenic route once again while looking back In The Rear View Mirror as only we can.

Here IS what's exciting us these days! Our dear friend and brilliant writer, Helena Mariposa, has finally published her long-awaited e-book The Last of Life, and it's now available on Amazon. Give it a read. We know you’ll love it as much as we do!

The New GOP: Gender Overlord Party

Nothing breeds the need to manipulate the masses faster than an election year. And those who are financially serious about securing their prominent positions of power never abort their efforts to win, even in the between times.

This means there can be no safety net or escape for the targeted masses being manipulated. Where ever they turn, they are being routinely subjected to an onslaught of emotional torture that we can only liken to water boarding because every assault has been psychologically programmed to wear them down and negatively feed into their deepest fears. At this point, one might even suggest that the masses have been morally imprisoned by the propaganda that has been unmercifully pouring down upon them without reprieve for more than a decade.

And when we try to unearth whose moral standards are calling the shots these days, we find ourselves standing in very murky waters with old world sludge oozing through our toes.

The United States of America has proudly boasted for generations a constitutional foundation that supports equality and religious freedom for all of its citizens. These very liberties are part of what makes America a desirable place to live not only for those who live here, but for many around the world; yet the last decade has seen a disturbing trend that seems to be intent upon eroding these individual and very personal rights.

A recent case in point would be the Supreme Court’s “Citizens United” decision two years ago. This abominable judicial decision was a huge 100-year leap back in time for the living and breathing citizens of this nation, and a testimony to the tenacity of corporate greed. Today’s presidential election, and the Super PACs secretly funding it, are real time proof to anyone who mistakenly thought things would be different a century later that history will always repeat itself when given the chance.

Another case in point brings us to the current race to win the 2012 GOP presidential nomination. The inflammatory, yet bizarrely virtuous, campaign rhetoric being hurled from every conservative pulpit and right-right newsroom this election season has evidently chosen to unilaterally hone in on publicly debating what should constitute morally appropriate healthcare for the female population as if it was a vital political issue.

It’s no secret that the push to repeal the healthcare reform legislation of 2010 has been a primary objective for the GOP from the beginning. Yet for reasons righteously hidden behind a veil of morality, the bulk of the conservative argument has suspiciously winged to the far right to hover around limiting healthcare coverage for women. And this has all been done without ever mentioning, let alone giving equal measure to the discussion of, what limitations ought to likewise be placed upon the healthcare coverage for the male population.
Many spiritual enthusiasts are quick to espouse the holy notion that every body is a temple, which today would translate to mean that approximately 309 million American temples are in need of medical maintenance at any given point in time, and some will need more maintenance than others. At around 157 million, more than half of these bodily temples are female in gender. This makes the disturbing fact that not one female was allowed to speak on behalf of the nation’s women on February 16, 2012 when House Oversight Committee Chairman, Darrell Issa (R-CA), called together an all male panel to discuss the moral prudence of covering contraception for women as an allowable component of affordable healthcare all the more alarming.

So when did an exclusionary panel of Moby Dicks become the morality overlords for a nation?

When we consider the old world inspiration for our current civilization and the Latin-based language we speak, the best answer to that question today will likely be found by looking back in the rear view mirror at ancient Rome.

To say that ancient Rome was a patriarchal society, and a world power once committed to conquering the entire known world including the Eurasian continent without compunction, would be an understatement. As unbelievable as it may seem in our so called “modern world”, only adult free men could be called citizens of ancient Rome. Patrician lineage notwithstanding, Roman women were never granted citizenship, nor were they given legal rights, because Roman men believed that a woman was unable to direct her own activities and must therefore be kept under male guardianship at all times. Women were bargaining chips for their fathers and brothers to use in negotiating marriage alliances, and they were expected to be subservient and obedient to their husbands in all things.

For all intents and purposes, Roman women were chattel. They had no voice in society, they could not vote, and they could not make decisions about what was best for their own bodies. And this included birthing babies. If a Roman woman did not produce the children required of her by a guardian husband, she could be divorced and abandoned with barely a word.

Conquering the known world required brute force. Something the Romans were pretty good at. But the subtle art of successfully subduing those civilizations once conquered required a more integrative touch. And history reveals that the Romans were pretty good at that too. They were not above placating the conquered by co-mingling spiritual belief systems just enough to create an umbrella of religious unification which provided a little something for everyone.

Regardless of the tenets outlined within “original scripture”, this practice continued to thrive throughout the doctrinal evolution of the Roman Catholic Church from its inception in the 4th century C.E. The practice was permanently discontinued when religious tolerance by the Church was no longer necessary to unify the masses because its powerful political position in the conquered known world had been firmly secured during the Inquisition. A few centuries of fear and torture, and behold! Upon this platform stands the history of a Roman Catholic Church that managed to brutally seize control, formalize its omnipotence, and of course, solidify its right to call the self-serving shots.

So when we fast forward two thousand years and find ourselves struggling to get by on a right wing and a prayer, we find it impossible to overlook the obvious as we watch the re-enactment of old Roman ideologies playing themselves out in the form of Roman Catholic Church standard operating procedures on our “modern day” Congressional floor. 2008 GOP presidential candidate, Mike Huckabee, could not have said it better when he recently declared on behalf of the GOP, “We are all Catholics now!”

This sweeping pronouncement has given us a new meaning for the Grand Old Party’s “GOP” acronym. In full recognition of our bullying times, we believe a more fitting definition for the new GOP would be the “Gender Overlord Party.” And it appears so far that the new GOP will have no trouble living up to this new definition, particularly when it comes to lording it over the people with righteousness and dogma.

Calling the principled shots for the masses can be a polarizing proposition, especially when the new GOP has chosen to mimic the double-standard-setting leadership of a Catholic Church that is supremely un-inclined to even follow its own Biblical rulebook. The eroding effects of this bipolar platform are difficult to avoid given the endless barrage of mass-manipulating mixed messages that border on schizophrenic being showered upon the nation. For in its self-appointed role of morality police, the new GOP has water boarded the masses mercilessly with the “Who, What, Where, When, and How” of things that should be done in order to conform with a limiting definition of what constitutes a God-fearing America: WHO to do it with, WHAT to do, WHERE to do it, WHEN to do it, and HOW to do it.

All equal consideration aside, we suppose in the end, acquiring the power necessary to call the self-serving shots has always come down to the money, because he who controls the money gets to make the rules. Whether the mass manipulation is effectuated through the fear of hellfire and damnation or the fear of financial failure, it really doesn’t seem to matter. The powerful end-results for those seeking to call the shots are all the same.

As the new GOP myopically strives to reprise the glory days of ancient Rome in 21st century America, they might want to take a hard look at the Arab Spring and consider what the masses are capable of when they have had enough of the old guard man-handling.

As for the American masses being man-handled, this time in history appears to be a pivotal time of choice for the population of a great nation. We can choose to step back in time and surrender our power to those seeking to grab it away through intimidation, or we can choose to step up to the plate and make a stand for the kind of collective society we truly want to have. To choose nothing would be to surrender to the power grab. And should enough of us choose to go down that illusionary road of safe surrender, we will ultimately have little option but to put an aspirin between our legs and blame Rome for all our troubles.

So fellow Americans, it looks like we are in this together whether we choose to be or not. What kind of collective society do you believe is worth voting for?

A society that chooses to invest nothing in those who nurture gets what it pays for. ‘In The Rear View Mirror’ March 4, 2009 posting "New Century Nurturing”.

P.S. Susan B. Anthony believed women’s rights were worth fighting for. She once took up space on the 3¢ stamp, and we watched her value appreciate with time when she later became the first woman to be immortalized on a minted U.S. dollar coin.

2012 - The Year Of The Job

It is often said that things are darkest before the dawn. When we look back in the rear view mirror at the passing of 2011, we find little solace in the fact that we were not alone when it came to navigating the stressful demands of a great depression and the transformative social unrest it has given rise to.

The plight of struggling Americans all across the country this year gone by has been disheartening. And their plight has, for the most part, been shamefully minimized as elected officials from every constituency continue to dismiss the public demonstrations of their voting population. Nor have any of the people’s protests prevented our legislative representatives from secretly re-routing our resources away from the very infrastructure that is necessary to improve the livelihoods for those who embody the backbone of America.

Instead, the preferential beneficiary of these resources appears to be the ‘new people’ -- a ‘new people’ furtively created by the Supreme Court, and comprised of the well-endowed institutions known collectively as Corporate America.

Every living and breathing citizen has a right to contribute and take up space, and it’s time we occupy our space with confidence.

Power to the real people! Stand up and be noticed in 2012 because everyone knows it’s the squeaky wheel that gets the grease.

Any illusions that the American people tried to hold on to in 2011 appear to have been profoundly shattered. Can we really trust the powers that be to better navigate our sinking ship in 2012? ‘In The Rear View Mirror’ March 31, 2009 posting "The American Myth”.

Walker's Waterloo

Something is rotten in the state of Wisconsin, and it’s not the moldy bleu cheese. Nor is it the lingering stench of unwashed protestors who filled the Capitol building-turned-campground last month. The rottenness in Wisconsin seems instead to be emanating straight out of the governor’s mansion for there’s a new man on the throne and he's busy throwing his sceptre around.

In mid-January, Wisconsin’s newly elected GOP governor and Tea Party favorite, Scott Walker, blindly hit the job post running. Walker wasted no time in outmaneuvering his colleagues before expeditiously stripping his constituents of their collective voice when he ramrodded his “I-owe-the-Koch Brothers” agenda down their throats without so much as a “let’s talk about it like grown-ups”.

Unreceptive to any form of negotiation, Walker made it clear from the start that he wasn’t interested in the opinions of the very people who’d democratically elected him to represent and serve them, even when those voters vehemently jumped up and down in opposition to his rights-stripping legislation. And the fact that Walker’s rights-stripping measure had absolutely no bearing on his campaign promises of fiscal responsibility made his imperialistic approach to the issue all the more dehumanizing.

Apparently the new face of Tea Party democracy has donned the mask of Napoleon Bonaparte, dictator and self-declared Emperor; and one whom many would assert was the antithesis of democracy.

Maybe Walker simply forgot who was paying him to be their governor, but we hardly think so. As soon as Walker removed his taxpaying population from the equation in one fell swoop of his governor’s sceptre, it became quite clear that the man hadn’t forgotten who pays him at all - especially when we follow the flow of money along his campaign trail.

Walker has ultimately shown the state of Wisconsin -and the entire nation for that matter- what Harry S. Truman really meant when he said “the buck stops here”. In fact, all indicators are that Walker is vigorously keeping his Tea Party promises of fiscal responsibility even now. Unfortunately for the citizens of Wisconsin, that sense of fiscal responsibility has little to do with them, and everything to do with serving the needs, wants and desires of his financial backers.

To be honest, or not to be honest... ...or is that just a stupid question, because Napoleon was of the opinion that “the surest way to remain poor is to be an honest man”. And while Napoleon also believed that stupidity wasn't a handicap in politics, everyone knows that no one goes into politics to go poor.

What is most disconcerting about Walker’s actions thus far is that no one can really be sure whether his unyielding position is merely the result of a righteous need to champion the cave-man cause of Reaganomics no matter the cost; or if he’s been lethally infected with a new strain of the fungus-amungus called the “Koch Bros spores”, which would irreversibly turn his empty shell of a body into an American variation of the Zombie Ants of Brazil, and a spore-spreading minion of the Koch Brothers.

A quick glance in the rear view mirror at Walker’s election campaign contributors shows us just how persuasive a cup of tea steeped in 43,000 spores can be. Evidently the more spores he slurped up, the faster he rose and the stronger he believed himself to be.

Frankly, it would be na├»ve to think that power didn’t come at a price, but with great power also comes great responsibility. Some would call that walking the line, which seems to be a notion very unfamiliar to Walker.

Now that the damage has been done, what we'd like to know is who keeps feeding the fungus-amungus and how is it that the "Koch Bros spores" continue to thrive? Isn't there a way for voters to starve the fungus out?

Bribe politicians and legislate the terms = Control the money and rule the world. See what we had to say about it two years ago at ‘In The Rear View Mirror’ April 13, 2009 posting "Greed Goes Underground".
