Trillions Magazine Explores Multi-Temporal Consciousness

The progressive magazine, Trillions, has an article in its October issue about being multi-temporal entitled “Management Mojo: Being Multi-Temporal“.

Multi-temporal means being more consciously aware of the past, present and future.  Some remote viewers refer to connecting to the future as getting “feedback from the future”. More commonly it is called precognition.

In Associative Remote Viewing, the viewer connects with their future self to receive perceptions from their future self about target feedback.  Sending information backwards in time to influence the past is called  “retro-causation” and is a widely accepted phenomenon in quantum physics.

Combining precognition with retro-causation enables a person to establish a channel of communication between their future self and past self.

June 2016 Newsletter

This is only the second time in the last 14 years I have no idea what to write about, because it would appear the whole month was a continuation of the last one.

My niece Claudia was visiting from Frankonia.  I broke ribs on the second day of her visit and was reminded what prolonged pain can feel like, since I had to drive and accommodate events while she was here, pain-pills were not an option until each day ended.

On one of our out and about trips to town we decided to treat ourselves at Wagners, the German Bakery in town.  We were really upset when they refused to sell us….in their sit down Cafe… a piece of cake along with the coffee we ordered.  There were many cakes, Cheese, Blackforest, Chocolate, Buttercream and Fruittortes.  They insisted we eat cupcakes, even after we reminded them that we ALWAYS buy their WHOLE expensive cakes for ANY family event ( there are 23 per year). Needless to say we left in disgust and were upset when a relative just a few days later arrived with one of their scrumptious cheesecakes at one of our Birthday Parties.  She had not received the memo. Of cause we ate the costly piece of art and decided it to be the LAST.  Two days later we purchased a cake from Safeway, it was good but we were sad that we had to give up….by principle… our treats from the bakery we had enjoyed for better than 30 years, if I remember the time-line correctly.  Here is a picture from their FB site.

About 40 Earthquakes PER DAY are rocking the PNW under 3 of our volcanoes.  Mt. St Helen. Mt Rainier and Mt Hood.

A big jolt collapsed my wood even though I am many miles away from the earthquake activity.  Are we scared yet?

Some homeless people were shipped out of Portland, Oregon under Project Homeward Bound.  They were given one-way tickets back to their place of origins…to handle the homeless problem.

The Buffalo became the Symbol of USA.

Ancient Aliens, Season 10 has outdone itself with educating people with things which were thought of as far out and only for people of certain and futuristic persuasions.

Hanford, our nuclear dumping ground in Washington State is in the news again.  Many more have become ill, people working there as well as “Down-winders”  people living in the area where the wind carries remnants of the terrible contamination.  My friend Dr Gilbert Jordan, along with his friend Dr Fox had offered to clean up the site in a fashion that would have actually worked.  They were denied permission and funds to do so.  When they approached Canada about the subject they were told if they continued they would be tried with treason.  Needless to say aside from occasionally talking about the subject nothing happened and it would appear nothing will.

I lost my friend Bill Ramsey and with his death a very important source of  information about what is going on in space.  We owe him a great thank you for all the work he used to share so freely.   He was a conduit for many, John Hodginson, Adam Curry, many of the friends interested and pursuing Tesla in some ways.  He recorded sounds in space so we knew what was ahead with storms and high strangeness in general. He was such an humble man and always wanted to stay in the background and I will so miss my friend!

Bill would have loved to comment on a strange encounter I had while having Lunch at a local casino.  Claudia, along with a friend and myself decided to go for lunch.  I was looking for UHU Glue and finally located some in the gift shop across from the very long food line.  I sat on a bench in the walkway while waiting to get my food ticket and smoked a cigarette, thinking about having finally found the glue.  Claudia was unable to bring it on the plane from Europe, so here it was all along…..

A young man, he had Down Syndrome, ran by me from left to right and smiled at me. I smiled back.  A few seconds later a young man, he had Down Syndrome ran by me from left to right and smiled at me.  I smiled back.  I have great affection for people with Down Syndrome because of the unconditional love they have for their fellow man and thought about the fact I have never encountered a set of twins.  After we were seated right in front of the young man and his father I realized it was the same young man I had seen twice within a few seconds and assumed there had been one of Bill Ramsey’s favorite time discrepancies he was so interested in.  He in I were obsessed with them at times. Truth be told.
About 10 PM I was watching TV and noticed my arm was dirty and wondered how it got that way….  WELL… surprise… it was not dirt.  It was fingerprints I must have picked up during the momentary time discrepancy.

Psychic and Medium Danielle Egnew had such a wonderful, simple way to explain the makings of our political dilemma.  I accidentally ran into her post and in true Lilian Fashion befriended her.  I hope to be able to tape a show with her shortly.  Till then she is posted at the end of this newsletter.

66 people died on an Egyptian Airplane, Flight 804.  It was sad news and it took a tragedy of this nature to remove Donald Trump from TV coverage, so many are actually tired to have this person living in our TV sets day after day after day…..
Many conversations and many opinions are circling Social Media as well as amongst Newscasters.  I was asked to re-post an article I wrote a few years back. As requested here it is:

I Hear Hoofs…. Who Goes There?
By Lilian Mustelier

We live in a world of texting and abbreviations, second nature to some and hard to comprehend for others. DID and MPD are short words for something enormous, in fact most people are unable to tell you what they stand for. PTSD is an abbreviation which has been forced into our vocabulary because of the significant amount of people, which have been afflicted.

DID stands for Dissociative Identity Disorder.
MPD stands for Multiple Personality Disorder.
PTSD stands for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.

The football player Herschel Walker released a book last month: “Breaking Free” .
By doing so he attempted to, once again, bring this subject to the forefront.
20/20 showed a report about…. A woman which wrote a book: The Woman Who Can’t Forget. By Jill Price and Bart Davis.

In 1997 I wrote a book: And The Moral Of The Story Is… One Person At A Time. http://www.highstrangeness.tv

Each one of these accounts touches on… in a broad sense… what it is like to be somewhat different.

Let me invite you into my world for a short time and tell you my story.

In 1987 I was diagnosed with MPD. It was determined I had suffered from said disorder since I was 9 years old. Extreme DID/MPD is brought on by severe trauma, torture or experimentation. It serves no purpose at this time for me to explain what this consisted of, only that during this time my own survival mechanism found it necessary to create a path for me to survive certain occurrences.

It created many compartmentalized files in my brain, which are accessible by different parts of me, Lilian. Somehow the brain managed to put in place the unique ability to become a “DIFFERENT” person all together, when it found it necessary to carry out a task. It was documented that even physical changes can occur, for example during an eye examination, in which my sight changed, from short-sighted in the left eye and far sighted in the right eye, to 20/20 vision in both eyes. Suffering from lifelong back problems and mild scoliosis, it was noted that during episodes I walked totally straight. Other times I have been unable to speak English. I am multi-lingual and sessions in other languages have been recorded by my therapist.

Changes in style of dress, food, music and physical activities are also common.

There was a time when I had no recall of anything, unaware of lost time or my whereabouts. It was not unusual to be unable to recall weeks. I jokingly call myself a “HOLEY” person, because I am unable to remember many parts of my life. It is not in my memory bank only to resurface at other times. I am unable to fill out paperwork which dealing with facts, including but not limited to medical history, work history or whereabouts. Many times I have no or very vague recollection of my children. I do not baby-sit my grandchildren due to fear I don’t know who they are and leave them in a stressful situation. I recall an instance taking a granddaughter skating. Not having skated in 20 years I was concerned about falling and hurting myself. Somehow I became 8 years old, the time period when I was an excellent figure skater. When it was time to go home I asked the girl with me to please call her mother, I did not know where we lived. I have made arrangements with my doctors to ask how old I am before leaving their office. Anything less than 16 is reason for concern because at that age I do not know how to drive.

For almost 30 years I have had great therapists which taught me, very patently, how to maneuver. There are no medications one can take, it takes hard work on a daily basis to navigate the maze, which is my life.

In recent times I had a therapist which, in my opinion, was not qualified and set me back in my learning progress by 10 years. Each time, after leaving his office, I would find myself in unfamiliar places. After several hours I did regain control long enough to have friends help me to find my way home. There were also times I would, the next day, find foreign food in the refrigerator. No recollection where I bought them, or how much money I spend. The Lady at my bank would pay a check …This is 2007-2008… dated 1974. She notified me of the overdraft (without charge ) and a friend would have to come to my aid and cover the checks. Please keep in mind while I, LILIAN, have no recollection of many things these OTHER people occupying my body are fully operational and function normally according to their standards. Lilian’s brain just shifts to a different compartment and operates according to the memory file in that part of the brain.

For those of you, which remember an EP/LP record along with the times your record skipped, after slightly tapping the record you might loose a fraction of the song you listened to, but the song would recover. Now picture a CD or DVD. As soon there is any discrepancy, dirt a scratch or malfunction with the disk you will not be able to continue what you listened to. At best you can try a different player, which is usually of no avail. The only choice you have is to reboot and hope the disk will recover. It rarely does. With MPD a person feels a scratch coming on, some times with masterful skills continue play is possible with a few bumps and skips. More often than not the only course of action is to stop, separate from the situation and reboot.

Each one of these disorders require a trigger. A trigger is something which tells the brain to access memories from a certain time period. PTSD, in my opinion, creates vivid memories which play out like a video, transporting the person in the time period said memory was experienced and forces the experiencer to re-live said instance and act accordingly.

DID and MPD act different in as much as it forces the experiencer to shut down and leave, therefore totally switching the brain to a facilitating alter. With intense practice after 30 years I sometimes recognize when I am “Scrambled” If I catch it in time I am able to maintain enough of my composure to stop a switch. Other times my skills let me down and I have to do the best I can AFTER the fact. Example: A friend owns a small aircraft. She offered to take me on a flight in order for me to film aerial shots for my TV Show. I was excited. However, she called while I was writing this article, an almost impossible task. She called to tell me to come on we were going to fly. I said NO. It was only the next day I was able to tell her that one of my OTHER PEOPLE, loved skydiving and I easily could have jumped out of the plane, without a parachute.

As far as we can tell the “Persons” which occupy my body are as follows:
1. Male, in charge of logical decisions.
2. Small child, afraid.
3.Young woman, terrified of riding as a passenger in cars.
4. Woman, creative and excellent painter.
5. Male, prone to failure.
6. Woman, brilliant in business and PR.
7. Woman, mother and defender.
8. Woman, social butterfly as well as dancer very popular with opposite sex.
9. Woman, writer/researcher very focused producer/director/host.

And there is the ME, LILIAN. Nondenominational, wise, extremely psychic, happy and the facilitator of everything which is ME. I am unemployable since I am unable to function at all.

When under stress I am not able to control which part of my brain is going to be accessed, who takes charge of what needs to be addressed next. There was I time I would argue about events, things said and attempt to explain why I would never have done or said what I was accused of and search my memory for days to remember what people around me made reference to. I would have to actually recover physically, much as one has to after surgery. With time I learned that, at running the risk of being called a liar, I now just answer with, this is not in my memory banks at this time, ask me again later, I might remember.

So, what do we need from the people around us?????

Most of us attempt to notify the people which we have close relationships with. Family, select friends, and people we work with, on a need to know basis. Health care providers should be notified, except there is no training other than how to deal with distraught people. In present times that can be a life threatening event for people like myself. Emergency personnel, ER personnel and Police are not trained to allow a person like myself to gain control, at which time everything becomes intensified. For example: I lived under occupation when I was small. A day after Sep.11 I saw soldiers driving by. A police car followed and for a moment I panicked. I realized I would not have been able to tell anyone my name. I was on my way to therapy and it was decided for me to wear a medic alert bracelet identifying me by name and to state I have MPD.

When spoken to I visualize everything a person tells me, sometimes it takes a couple of seconds longer to answer, than it would the average person. This is often mistaken for not answering or disinterest. The response of a person I am conversing with can sometimes act as a trigger. Triggers are different for each person. In my case it can be an odor, an event, holidays, a sound or the person I am dealing with themselves, their tone of voice when speaking or questioning me.

Picture yourself watching a TV program. You follow the story line. All of a sudden someone behind you changes the channel. You have little or no objection since you understand there are more people present than yourself. You get involved in the new story line only to have the channel changed again and again and again at which time you are dizzy. Your blood pressure and adrenaline rises, your choice is to become confrontational or leave. My eye movement will change when someone switches the channel and I will always decide to walk away to reboot. Unfortunately even the people we attempted to educate are not able or willing to afford us this luxury. In rare instances people will deliberately create an instance to switch me in order to accomplish an agenda which is NOT in my interest. A law was passed in the 90’s to charge people with a crime if they were aware of a person’s diagnosis and created a situation in which sexual favors are involved. The charge is Rape.

The suggestion of calling 911 for help does not serve a purpose in as much as a person such as myself is not able to explain to an untrained person what the problem is, it only intensifies the situation. It will add panic to the equation. If I was able to explain my dilemma, I could reboot and fix it myself.

What is needed is TOLERANCE, it is almost more important than UNDERSTANDING. Even people aware of the situation forget or do not want to deal with an episode. They take things personal and are unable to RECOGNIZE something is not right. AT THAT CRITICAL MOMENT. Stand down… Do not offer an aspirin and any medical solution. There is no pill, we need a clear mind and the luxury of composing ourselves. When the episode is over DO NOT ask questions trying to reconstruct what happened, this will only delay the recovery from that incident. Often there is NO memory about what happened. DO NOT TAKE ANYTHING PERSONAL. DO NOT BABY THE PERSON. DO NOT EXAGGERATE THE EVENT. Or outright lie.

I live by myself. Each room is decorated in a different theme. I can tell my frame of mind by which room I spend my time in. I create myself a focus point. I do well when traveling because it is not necessary for me to explain myself since I am only at a place for a very short time. I do things at my own pace. I ask to be reminded of appointments. I do one thing at the same time each week, so I know at least once a week I will return “HOME”. Unfortunately there are many people, which are not able to maneuver in this fashion. They live with others, they may not be as skilled as I have become after 30 years, they may not even know there is something which prevents them from functioning properly. My hope is that more education will be available for ALL of us, especially since so many people have at least PTSD.

Close your eyes, you hear hoofs. You assume, no, you know you hear a horse.
Open your eyes.
IT IS A ZEBRA!

Dreaded ‘Nightmare Bacteria’ Resistant to All Antibiotics Is Finally Here

by Nika Knight, CommonDreams.org

The superbug resistant even to “antibiotics of last resort” is a strain of E. coli, pictured above. (Photo: U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention)

A so-called superbug immune to all antibiotics was discovered for the first time in a person in the U.S., reports a study published Thursday in the journal Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy.

The discovery “heralds the emergence of a truly pan-drug resistant bacteria,” the study’s authors warned.

The strain of E. coli discovered in a 49-year-old woman in Pennsylvania was found to be resistant to colistin, “the antibiotic of last resort for particularly dangerous types of superbugs, including a family of bacteria known as CRE,” reports the Washington Post.

Colistin “was an old antibiotic, but it was the only one left for what I call nightmare bacteria,” said Thomas Frieden, chief of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), according to Al Jazeera.

“It’s the first time this colistin-resistant strain has been found in a person in the United States,” the Post notes. “In November, public health officials worldwide reacted with alarm when Chinese and British researchers reported finding the colistin-resistant strain in pigs, raw pork meat and in a small number of people in China.”

The dreaded superbug was later discovered in individual cases Europe and Canada, as well as in a single sample from a pig intestine in the U.S., according to a Department of Defense (DoD) blog post about the findings.

The woman had gone to an outpatient military clinic complaining of symptoms of a urinary tract infection on April 26, 2016, and samples of the bacteria were sent to Walter Reed Medical Center for further testing.

An additional 20 patients at the clinic were tested for the superbug but came up negative, and the woman reported no travel in the past five months. The study authors report that it remains unclear exactly what the superbug’s prevalence is in the local population.

“A coordinated public health response is underway to try to prevent its spread,” writes the DoD.

The superbug’s arrival in the U.S. “basically shows us that the end of the road isn’t very far away for antibiotics—that we may be in a situation where we have patients in our intensive-care units, or patients getting urinary tract infections for which we do not have antibiotics,” Frieden said to the Washington Post on Thursday.

“I’ve been there for TB patients. I’ve cared for patients for whom there are no drugs left. It is a feeling of such horror and helplessness,” Frieden added. “This is not where we need to be.”

Al Jazeera delves into the causes of the disastrous rise of antibiotic-resistant superbugs:

Overprescribing of antibiotics by physicians and in hospitals and their extensive use in food livestock have been blamed for contributing to the crisis.

More than half of all patients treated in hospital will get an antibiotic at some point during their stay. But studies have shown that 30 to 50 percent of antibiotics prescribed in hospitals are unnecessary or incorrect, contributing to antibiotic resistance.

In the U.S., antibiotic resistance has been blamed for at least two million illnesses and 23,000 deaths a year.

Indeed, the CDC and the World Health Organization have long been sounding the alarm about the ballooning global threat of antibiotic resistance caused by overprescription. As Common Dreams reported earlier this month, a recent CDC study showed that 30 percent “of the 154 million prescriptions for antibiotics given at doctors’ offices and emergency departments were wrong… And those figures are likely conservative.”

Moreover, notes the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC),More than 70 percent of antibiotics important for human medicine sold in the U.S. are actually sold for use in livestock—often for routine growth promotion and disease prevention in animals that are not sick.”

“We know now that the more we look, the more [superbugs] we are going to find,” Frieden warned. “We risk being in a post-antibiotic world.”

Hillary Clinton – War Criminal, Racist, Psychopath

By Stephen Lendman

Clinton appears unstoppable for her party’s nomination. Americans should be terrified about the possibility of a power-crazed lunatic as president – her finger on the nuclear trigger.

Possible global war with her in charge with weapons able to kill us all should scare everyone. Forget her gender. She’s a Wall Street supported war goddess, the most recklessly dangerous US presidential aspirant in modern memory.

Francis Boyle calls her “a certified psychopath and a war criminal.” Electing her president is unthinkable. She supports endless wars of aggression, Wall Street looting the nation’s wealth and ripping off investors, as well as unrestrained predatory crony capitalism.

She’s ideologically opposite what people should support – anti-populist, anti-labor, anti-rule of law principles and anti-democratic values.

African Americans should reconsider their support. As first lady in the 1990s, she called Black youths “super predators (with) no conscience, no empathy.”

She called for the FBI making “a very concerted effort (to) bring them to heel.” She supported “deporter-in-chief” Obama’s agenda to deport so-called undocumented Latinos en masses – separating husbands from wives, parents from children.

As first lady, she advocated racist get tough on crime laws, more police, more prisons, harsher sentences – an agenda directed at Blacks and Latinos “to keep them off the streets…for as long as it takes.”

She has a notorious history of extremist views, her public persona on the stump concealing her viciousness.

A previous article said among an array of despicable duopoly power presidential aspirants, Clinton is the most sinister of the bunch.

Her agenda reflects pure evil. She’s a Wall Street/war-profiteers dream, shamelessly indifferent to human suffering, a menace threatening world peace, a machine for the manufacture of full-blown homeland tyranny.

If elected president, expect her to continue Obama’s rogue agenda on steroids, surrounding herself with likeminded neocon lunatics, gangsters threatening humanity’s survival.

Bipartisan criminals run America. Clinton represents everything voters should reject.

World peace and what remains of fundamental freedoms already hang in the balance. A Clinton administration would be catastrophic for humanity.

What Will Many Bernie Sanders Voters Do After July?

The hard-bitten, corporatist Democrats are moving Hillary Clinton through the presidential primaries. They are using “Republican-speak” to beat down Bernie Sanders as favoring Big Government and more taxes and they may unwittingly be setting the stage for a serious split in the Democratic Party.

What is emerging is the reaction of millions of Sanders supporters who will feel repudiated, not just left behind, as the Clintonites plan to celebrate at the Democratic Convention in July. The political experience gained by the Sanders workers, many of them young, helped Sanders register primary victories over Hillary in Colorado, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Vermont and New Hampshire with their energy and votes. They came close in Nevada and Massachusetts and probably won in Iowa.

Hillary’s rhetoric has outraged Sanders’ supporters. She berates Sanders regularly for not being practical or realistic about his Medicare-for-all, breaking up big banks, a $15 minimum wage, a tax on Wall Street speculation and carbon and getting big money out of politics. Clinton’s putdowns exemplify why so many people who back Sanders want to defeat her. Clinton is the candidate of the status quo, favored over all other candidates from both parties by the Wall Street crowd and quietly adored by the military-industrial complex who see Generalissima Clinton as a militarist who would maintain the warfare state.

Democrat Robert Reich, former Secretary of Labor under Bill Clinton, derided this “We Shouldn’t Even Try” attitude common among many frightened Democrats. These are, in Reich’s words, “the establishment Democrats – Washington lobbyists, editorial writers, inside-the-Beltway operatives, party leaders and big contributors who have grown comfortable with the way things are.” These hereditary Democrat opinion-shapers tell their audiences that Hillary personifies experience and electability. They argue it is either Clinton or Trump or some other crazed Republican.

Here we go again. Every four years, the Democratic leaders define the Democratic candidate by how bad the Republicans  are. This is designed to panic and mute their followers. Every four years, both parties become more corporatist. Sanders’ voters want to define the Democratic Party by how good it can be for the people. And these Sanders voters may not go back into the Democratic Party fold.

Low turnout for the Democratic Party’s primaries is being compared to a much higher Republican voter turnout for their candidates. Low turnout in November would dim Hillary’s chances in an electoral college, winner-take-all system.

Such Democratic Party misfortune can become more likely should Bernie endorse Hillary at the Democratic Convention without any conditions or her acceptance of his agenda, assuming she is the nominee. Last year he declared that he would endorse “the Democratic nominee.” Certainly, all the Democratic politicos in the Congress who endorsed Hillary set no conditions. The  large labor unions that went with Hillary are known for giving their endorsements without receiving any benefits for workers. So, Hillary would have no mandate should she win the election. And you know that Clintons without mandates tend to bend toward Wall Street and rampant militarism.

It is doubtful whether Hillary will credibly adopt any of Bernie’s agenda, considering where her campaign money is coming from and how unwilling she is to alienate her circle of advisors.

Where does this leave the Sanders people who see Hillary as experienced in waging wars, qualified as an entrenched pol, and realistic to suit the plutocracy’s tastes, and not really getting much of anything progressive done (alluding to the ways she has described herself)?

The energetic Sanders supporters, including the Millennials who voted so heavily for Bernie, could form a New Progressive movement to exercise a policy pull on the establishment Democrats before November and to be a growing magnet after November with the objective of taking over the Democratic Party starting with winning local elections. This will have long-term benefits for our country.

To those who point to history throwing water on such a potential breakout, I tell them to look at the 2016 presidential primaries. All bets are off when political debates become big media business with huge ratings, and when a gambling czar and builder of expensive real estate, Donald Trump (a hybrid Rep/Dem), is overturning all the old homilies about presidential politics, and is in a primary contest with two freshmen Senators whose vacuous ambitions are their only achievements.

March 2016 Newsletter

February was a complicated month, or was it. In some ways it was boring because the news was pretty much the same each day. Weather and the Presidential run for the Whitehouse.

Like every February our local Pow Wow… Sa-Heh-Wa-Mish-Days took place on the 20th and 21st. Like every February I drove the back roads to attend the event, recharged my etheric batteries… as I call it… and checked the state of the season on my way there. I had estimated the first trees to bloom by the 23rd and it appeared I was right. Like each February I wrote my newsletter in my head on my journey there and like each February I forgot every thought I had by the time I got home. Like each February I regretted not having followed friend’s advice to carry a recorder and tape my thoughts. This February I carried a Smart Phone which I use as an alarm clock, since the phone is much smarter than me and I do not know how to operate it.

One of the great things about attending yearly events one sees old friends who have come from all over, the kids are a year older and we are another year wiser. To share a meal and catch up is such a wonderful institution and … wait for it.. sunshine instead of snow and ice … is the icing on the cake.

I wondered how come I was able to see the full Moon in broad sunshiny daylight and found out it was really a special day, the night of the Snow Moon.

Pow-Wow Dancers
Pow-Wow Dancers

I sat with the friends while watching the Grand Entry of all the tribes, a glorious site to see, the honoring of all the Vets, which is a very big part of a Pow Wow, to thank the warriors for their service.  The little ones, ages 3-6, did a Chicken Dance and it always moves me to see all the different tribes in Unity teaching culture to the young.  I always wonder why it is that the world cannot follow this example and live in peace, it can be done, IT CAN BE DONE!

Unable to walk the distance from the Parking area to the event, I had brought my walker so I was able to sit in the Sun.  2 Young women asked me if I had already eaten, I had not.  So they brought me a REZ Burger…. a double hamburger in Navajo Frybread and we attempted to sort out subjects which were of interest to all of us in the little group which had congregated in the food-line next to where I was sitting in my little space in the Sun.

We always have floods this time of the year but it has seldom been so much and everywhere.  Not just where I live, tribal members from Oregon, Idaho, Montana and Utah commented on the vast distance and severity of the floods of 2016.

11 States were greatly affected by Storms, mostly blizzards and Tornadoes.  Mother Nature is truly angry about something and we speculated what it could be.  It only took a moment to list a multitude of reasons, since the world is in such turmoil.

We learned a new word, which will surely make it into the dictionary: Trumpertandrum

A Neolithic woman was found at Stonehenge and we talked about regardless of how educational it is, it is sacrilegious how we continue to dig up everything and everybody.

A friend inquired if I finally had hot water and if all worked out.  She was talking about an incident I posted on my Facebook.  My hot water-tank was leaking and a relative offered to help by loaning me part of the money needed for the repair.  I went to Western Union as requested to retrieve the money when it became apparent he had not himself wired money and asked a friend to take care of it for him.  I was unable to pick up the money since I did not remember his friends last name and had no phone number to call and ask.  It took a couple of days before I was able to get back to Western Union at our local Fred Mayers.  It was late in the afternoon and the shoppers were tired or laid back, some resting their arms on the shopping carts they were pushing.

I re-submitted my pay out request with the proper last name listed on the form. It also showed I expected $100.  The clerk in a very loud voice announced that Allah did NOT send me $100.  Allah sent $500.

The shoppers became alive and went into protective mode.  The whole store went into semi panic mode by the name Allah.  It was very disturbing to me but I was glad to experience the behavior of the shoppers, as well as the clerks.  So sad, so sad.  Eventually….3 weeks later… my hot water problem was resolved and I returned the money to Allah.  A new solution was found and I am happy to report that the 3-week cold water dilemma was solved.

My friend Bill Ramsey started to record sound in outer space long before I met him in 1993.  He called it MUSIC.  The frequency is not compatible with me and interferes with my balance and demeanor.  However, over a period of time I managed to familiarize myself with the sounds of certain planets.  I made Bill Ramsey’s recordings available to some of my Techno Musician friends, who worked it into their work, as far back as 2009. At the end of the newsletter is one of my shows that covered the subject in 1999.  There is also a show which explains the mechanics of frequency and sounds in space.

Right in line with this is what I found on my Facebook page a couple of days later.  For the friends without a computer I have copied what that looks like.

For all my musician friends who think I know what I’m doing with the cables and wires and stuff behind my keyboard and inside of the whole set-up, and can discuss it intelligently, well, as you can see from this pic, I am majorly confused! tongue emoticon I know the technicalities on how to make the music, but I can’t always answer your questions about the cabling, devices and all that stuff. I have a techie for that. Okay, enough of this, just get me out of this tangled mess and back to the front where the good stuff is! – with ALiEn TriBe.

Lilian Mustelier I had issues today also, I screwed up everything….

Lilian Mustelier Had not thought of it, but I think you are right. Remember when I offered you the Space sound my friend records and I offered it to you? WELL that is what they talked about in the news today….new discovery, except that was 6 years ago

Lia Shapiro Oh gosh Lilian, do you ever feel like it’s your electro-magnetic frequency that can mess with electronics? I know mine messes with it!!

Lilian Mustelier May I use your post in my newsletter please Lia Shapiro

Lia Shapiro My electronics get messed up if I’m rushed or stressed too much, Lilian. Yes, I remember when you offered it to me. Back then I wasn’t doing collaborations or working with anyone else’s’ material. Do you have a copyright on it? I couldn’t just use something like that if someone has a copyright on it or even if it belongs to them. It would be cool though and especially now that it’s coming out in the news.

Lilian Mustelier yes, I have permission to use it as I see fit. So, can I use this post?

Lilian Mustelier I take this heads up to be a YES. Thank you!

Alien TriBe Lilian, I’m still not sure what you want to use in the newsletter, but whatever it is, I give my permission, it’s okay!

Lilian Mustelier The picture and our conversation, it fits right into the subject of my newsletter

Lia Shapiro Oh, okay Lilian. Please send me a copy of your newsletter when done. Actually, I think I’ve been missing them.

While at the Pow Wow I ran into some old friends. We belonged to the same church at one time.  Over the years some of us have found it necessary to form support groups on the internet to help us deal with issues keeping us from living a normal life.  MANY people who have left the Church, along with some Scientologists and Mormons have reached heights in our lives that would not have been possible in a regimented, constrictive and mind controlled environment.

Here is a post I received from someone looking for explanations in reference to the treatment of some.  This came out of a handbook.

Fortune-telling
There are different ways this pattern applies to Jehovah’s Witnesses. The most obvious are the failed predictions, of course. Funny how nobody seems to care among Jehovah’s Witnesses. This is due, in part, to the Governing Body claiming affiliation with prophets of ancient time who seemingly had the gift of foretelling future events. So, if it worked out for them, it will have to work out for the Governing Body in the long run, right? We just have to believe. Plus: It says so in the Bible. On a smaller scale, we are all prone to fortune-telling. Did you ever think you’d make a perfect ass of yourself doing an assignment in the Theocratic Ministry School and then it didn’t go so well indeed? Classic self-fulfilling prophecy. Why? Because we were made to believe that if something goes wrong it is always our fault or our lacking of faith. If things go well: Thank you, Jehovah!
In my humble opinion …. Could it be that is why some of us are declared as EVIL and shunned because we actually have a gift from the Creator and use it to help people to maneuver their lives. Especially of we can convince them everyone has free will and can make their own choices. We solve crimes, help find missing persons, and actually manage to give people hope based o their circumstances … LOVE rather than FEAR … and oh yeah, some of us … as it turns out use our God Given Gift and are actually right.

In my book I introduce you to some of the people this applies to and mankind would have missed out on some brilliant discoveries had they stayed in a manipulating environment.  Feel free to download your copy at the link below.

Obama Confident He Can Totally Destroy Remaining U.S. Democracy

In case you aren’t aware of it, Obama’s Transpacific Partnership trade deal contains a clause that eliminates American sovereignty by granting foreign corporations the right to sue US govt. agencies in an offshore tribunal if they don’t support the corporations’ profits.

The agreement certainly does have some good aspects but those don’t compensate for the many bad parts. The worst part is the destruction of democracy at every level by taking away the people’s right to government that creates regulations to serve their needs.  The TPP makes citizens of every signatory nation a servant of corporations.

The deal was written by large multinational criminal corporations, negotiated in secret and signed Feb. 4 in New Zealand. It can’t be changed and a country must either ratify it or not.

Obama was elected based on false promises. One of those promises was to not use the unconstitutional “Fast Track” process.  Candidate Obama said he would “replace Fast Track… I will ensure that Congress plays a strong and informed role in our international economic policy and in any future agreements we pursue…” Yet, Obama ensured that the democratic process would be subverted through a “Fast Track” approval of the TPP.

Fast Track grants the executive branch the ability to eliminate critical checks and balances in the Constitution by seizing the authority vested in congressional representatives:

  • Power to select trade partners,
  • Power to set terms and sign sweeping “trade” agreements before Congress votes on them,
  • Power to write legislation to change all U.S. laws needed to conform with the agreements, skirt congressional review and amendments and directly submit this legislation for a vote,
  • Power to force votes within 60-90 days of submitting the implementing legislation to Congress,
  • Power to override normal voting rules. All amendments on Fast-Tracked FTAs are banned and debate is limited, including in the Senate.

So, even if  the U.S. Congress wasn’t corrupt and somehow disobeyed its corporate masters, ratification is still assured.

While the agreement is written in highly cryptic language and is open to a wide range of interpretations, the intent of the agreement is clear enough.

You can read the agreement at https://ustr.gov/trade-agreements/free-trade-agreements/trans-pacific-partnership/tpp-full-text and interpret the agreement as you like.

Perhaps the ratification of the TPP will finally be enough to get Americans off their butts and into the streets to implement a regime change where it is really needed.

Risking Nuclear War for Al Qaeda?

Exclusive: The risk that the multi-sided Syrian war could spark World War III continues as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and U.S. neocons seek an invasion that could kill Russian troops — and possibly escalate the Syrian crisis into a nuclear showdown, amazingly to protect Al Qaeda terrorists, reports Robert Parry.

By Robert Parry

When President Barack Obama took questions from reporters on Tuesday, the one that needed to be asked – but wasn’t – was whether he had forbidden Turkey and Saudi Arabia to invade Syria, because on that question could hinge whether the ugly Syrian civil war could spin off into World War III and possibly a nuclear showdown.

If Turkey (with hundreds of thousands of troops massed near the Syrian border) and Saudi Arabia (with its sophisticated air force) follow through on threats and intervene militarily to save their rebel clients, who include Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, from a powerful Russian-backed Syrian government offensive, then Russia will have to decide what to do to protect its 20,000 or so military personnel inside Syria.

A source close to Russian President Vladimir Putin told me that the Russians have warned Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan that Moscow is prepared to use tactical nuclear weapons if necessary to save their troops in the face of a Turkish-Saudi onslaught. Since Turkey is a member of NATO, any such conflict could quickly escalate into a full-scale nuclear confrontation.

Given Erdogan’s megalomania or mental instability and the aggressiveness and inexperience of Saudi Prince Mohammad bin Salman (defense minister and son of King Salman), the only person who probably can stop a Turkish-Saudi invasion is President Obama. But I’m told that he has been unwilling to flatly prohibit such an intervention, though he has sought to calm Erdogan down and made clear that the U.S. military would not join the invasion.

So far, Erdogan has limited Turkey’s direct military attacks on Syria to cross-border shelling against U.S.-backed Kurdish forces that have seized territory from the Islamic State (also known as ISIS) in northern Syria. Turkey considers the Kurdish fighters, known as YPG, to be terrorists but the U.S. government sees them as valuable allies in the fight against Islamic State terrorists, an Al Qaeda spinoff that controls large swaths of Syria and Iraq.

But Erdogan’s short fuse may have grown shorter on Wednesday when a powerful car bomb killed at least 28 people in Turkey’s capital of Ankara. The bomb apparently targeted a military convoy and Turkish officials cast suspicion on Kurdish militants who also have been under assault from Turkish forces inside Turkey.

Though showing no evidence, Turkish officials suggested the attack may have been sponsored by Iran or Russia, another sign of how complicated the geopolitical morass in Syria has become. “Those who think they can steer our country away from our goals by using terrorist organizations will see that they have failed,” declared Erdogan, according to The Wall Street Journal.

(On Wednesday night, Turkey retaliated for the Ankara bombing by launching airstrikes against Kurdish targets in northern Iraq.)

The dilemma for Obama is that many traditional U.S. allies, such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been the principal backers and funders of Sunni terror groups inside Syria, including Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front and – to a lesser degree – the Islamic State. Now, the “allies” want the United States to risk a nuclear confrontation with Russia to, in effect, protect Al Qaeda.

Biden Blurts Out Truth

The twisted reality was acknowledged by no less an authority than Vice President Joe Biden during a talk at Harvard in 2014. Biden answered a student’s question by saying Turkey, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates had “poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens, thousands of tons of weapons into anyone who would fight against [Syrian President Bashar al-] Assad.” The result, Biden said, was that “the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra and Al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis coming from other parts of the world.”

The risks from these tangled alliances were also highlighted by a Defense Intelligence Agency report in August 2012, warning the Obama administration that the growing strength of Al Qaeda and other Sunni jihadists in Syria could lead to the creation of “an Islamic state” whose militants could move back into Iraq where the threat originated after the U.S. invasion of Iraq.

The DIA said Al Qaeda’s growing strength in Syria “creates the ideal atmosphere for AQI [Al Qaeda in Iraq] to return to its old pockets in Mosul and Ramadi and will provide a renewed momentum under the presumption of unifying the jihad among Sunni Iraq and Syria and the rest of the Sunnis in the Arab world against what it considers one enemy, the dissenters [i.e. the Shiites].

“ISI [Islamic State of Iraq, forerunner of ISIS, also known as the Islamic State] could also declare an Islamic state through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria, which will create grave danger in regards to unifying Iraq and the protection of its territory.”

Despite the prescient DIA report and Biden’s blunt admission (for which he quickly apologized), President Obama failed to put a stop to the strategy of supporting Assad’s opponents. He let Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Turkey continue funneling weapons to the most extreme elements of the rebellion. Meanwhile, the U.S. government insisted that it was only arming “moderate” rebels, but those groups were largely subsumed or controlled by Al Qaeda’s Nusra and/or ISIS, a hyper-violent spinoff from Al Qaeda.

In Syria, rather than cooperate with Russia and Iran in helping Assad’s military defeat the jihadists, the Obama administration has continued playing it cute, insisting – as Secretary of State John Kerry has said recently – that armed “legitimate opposition groups” exist separately from Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front.

In reality, however, the so-called “moderate” rebels around Aleppo and Idlib are Al Qaeda’s junior partners whose value to the cause is that they qualify for CIA weaponry that can then be passed on to Nusra as well as Nusra’s key ally Ahrar al-Sham and other jihadist fighters.

Nusra and Ahrar al-Sham, the chief elements of the Saudi-created “Army of Conquest,” deployed U.S. TOW missiles to devastating effect against the Syrian army in the jihadists’ victory last year in Idlib province, a success that finally prompted Putin to commit Russian air power to defend the Syrian government last September.

Helping the Islamic State

Meanwhile, Turkey has left about 100 kilometers of its border open for various jihadist groups to bring in reinforcements and weapons while letting the Islamic State smuggle out oil for sale on the black market. Last fall, after Russia (and a reluctant United States) began bombing ISIS oil-truck convoys, Turkey shot down a Russian bomber near Turkey’s border, leading to the deaths of the pilot and a rescuer.

Now, as the Russian-backed Syrian army makes major gains against the Nusra-dominated rebels around Aleppo and encroaches on Islamic State territory near Raqqa – and as U.S.-backed Kurdish forces also advance against ISIS – Turkey’s Erdogan has grown frantic over the prospects that his five-year project of aiding Syrian jihadists may be collapsing.

Amid this desperation, Turkey has been urging President Obama to support a limited invasion of Syria to create a “safe zone,” supposedly to protect Syrian rebels and civilians in northern Syria. But that humanitarian-sounding plan may well be a cover for a more ambitious plan to march to Damascus and forcibly remove President Assad from power.

That is a goal shared by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and other Sunni states along with Israel and America’s influential neoconservatives and their “liberal interventionist” sidekicks. For his part, Obama has called on Assad “to go” but has favored diplomatic negotiations to achieve that end. Russia has advocated a political settlement with free elections so the Syrian people can decide Assad’s future themselves.

The Russians also keenly remember the West’s subterfuge regarding Libya in 2011 when the U.S. and its NATO allies pushed a “humanitarian” resolution through the United Nations Security Council supposedly to protect Libyan civilians but then used it to achieve violent “regime change,” a classic case of the camel getting its nose into the tent.

On Syria, Russia watched for years as the United States, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and other Sunni states supported various Sunni rebel groups seeking to overthrow Assad, an Alawite, representing a branch of Shiite Islam. Though Assad has been widely criticized for the harsh response to the uprising, he maintains a secular government that has protected Christians, Alawites, Shiites and other minorities.

Besides being a target of Sunni regional powers, Assad has long been on the Israeli-neocon hit list because he’s seen as the centerpiece of the “Shiite crescent” stretching from Iran through Iraq and Syria to Lebanon. Since Israeli leaders (and thus the American neocons) see Iran as Israel’s greatest enemy, the goal of collapsing the “Shiite crescent” has concentrated on bringing down Assad — even if his ouster would create a political/military vacuum that Al Qaeda and/or Islamic State might fill.

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Making Syria the site for this proxy war has inflicted particularly savage results on the Syrians. For five years the violence by both the rebels and the army has destroyed much of the country and killed more than 250,000 people while also sending waves of desperate refugees crashing into Europe, now destabilizing the European Union.

However, as the U.S. and its Mideast allies – especially Saudi Arabia and Turkey – escalated the conflict last year by supplying the rebels, including Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, with American TOW missiles and other sophisticated weapons, Russian President Putin decided it was time to help Syria’s government stop the spread of Sunni terrorism, a threat that has also plagued Russia.

Mocking Russia

Initially, Official Washington mocked the Russian effort as incapable of accomplishing much, but the Syrian military’s recent victories have turned that derisive laughter into shocked fury. For one, the neoconservative flagship Washington Post has unleashed a stream of editorials and op-eds decrying the Syrian-Russian victories.

“Russia, Iran and the Syrian government are conducting a major offensive aimed at recapturing the city of Aleppo and the rebel-held territory that connects it to the border with Turkey,” the Post lamented. “They have cut one supply route to the city and are close to severing another, trapping rebel forces along with hundreds of thousands of civilians.”

Though one might think that driving Al Qaeda’s forces out of a major urban center like Aleppo would be a good thing, the Post’s neocon editors pretend that the rebels controlling that area are only noble “moderates” who must be protected by the United States. No mention is made of Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front, so as not to spoil the desired propaganda theme.

The Post then badgered Obama to do something: “In the face of this onslaught, which promises to destroy any chance of an acceptable end to the Syrian civil war, the Obama administration has been a study in passivity and moral confusion. President Obama is silent.”

In another hysterical editorial, the Post’s editors conjured up what they called “the real world” where “the best-case scenario after five years of U.S. inaction is a partial peace that leaves Syria partitioned into zones controlled by the [Assad] regime and the Islamic State, with a few opposition and Kurdish enclaves squeezed in. Even that would require the Obama administration to aggressively step up its military support for rebel groups, and confront Russia with more than rhetoric.”

However, in the actual “real world,” the Obama administration has been funneling military equipment to rebels seeking to overthrow an internationally recognized government for years. That assistance has included averting U.S. eyes from the fact that many of those rebel groups were collaborating with Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front and/or the Islamic State.

As Mideast expert Gareth Porter reported, “The Russian airstrikes in question are aimed at cutting off Aleppo city, which is now the primary center of Nusra’s power in Syria, from the Turkish border. To succeed in that aim, Russian, Syrian and Iranian forces are attacking rebel troops deployed in towns all along the routes from Aleppo to the border. Those rebels include units belonging to Nusra, their close ally Ahrar al-Sham, and other armed opposition groups – some of whom have gotten weapons from the CIA in the past. …

“Information from a wide range of sources, including some of those the United States has been explicitly supporting, makes it clear that every armed anti-Assad organization unit in those provinces is engaged in a military structure controlled by Nusra militants. All of these rebel groups fight alongside the Nusra Front and coordinate their military activities with it.”

But The Washington Post and its mainstream U.S. cohorts don’t want you to know the real “real world” reality that Syria’s sainted “moderate” rebels are fighting side by side with Al Qaeda, which was responsible for killing nearly 3,000 Americans on 9/11 and for drawing the U.S. military into a series of Mideast conflicts that have claimed the lives of about 8,000 U.S. soldiers.

The bizarre goal of saving Al Qaeda’s skin presumably would not be a very good selling point to get Americans behind a new war that could pit nuclear-armed Russia against nuclear-armed America with all the horrors that such a conflict could entail.

Still, the inconvenient truth about Al Qaeda’s role occasionally slips into mainstream news accounts, albeit only in passing. For instance, New York Times correspondent Anne Barnard reported last Saturday about a proposed Syrian cease-fire, writing: “With the proviso that the Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s branch in Syria, can still be bombed, Russia puts the United States in a difficult position; the insurgent groups it supports cooperate in some places with the well-armed, well-financed Nusra in what they say is a tactical alliance of necessity against government forces.”

Obama’s Quandary

So, the quandary that Obama faces is whether the United States should join with Turkey and Saudi Arabia in a blatant invasion of Syria to salvage Al Qaeda’s cause. Of course, that’s not how it would be sold to the American people. The project would be couched in pretty words about “humanitarianism” and the need to maintain U.S. “credibility.”

But Obama seems to recognize enough of the actual reality that he has so far resisted the frantic cries of Official Washington’s neocons and liberal hawks. I’m told Obama also has discouraged Turkey and Saudi Arabia from taking matters into their own hands.

After all, a full-scale invasion by Turkey and Saudi Arabia in support of Al Qaeda and other Sunni rebels would pit the invading force against not only the Syrian army but its Iranian and Hezbollah (Shiite) allies – and most dangerously Russia, which lacks the manpower inside Syria to match up with the Turkish army but could deploy tactical nuclear weapons if necessary to save the lives of Russian soldiers.

So, here is a significant difference between Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. She has publicly called for the U.S. military to establish a “safe zone” inside Syria along with a “no-fly zone.” While all that sounds very nice and peaceful, it would actually require the same invasion that Turkey is now seeking and it would require the U.S. air force to eliminate much of the Syrian air force and air defenses. It would be a major act of war.

On Tuesday, Obama was asked about the Syrian conflict at a news conference but it was within the typical mainstream frame of suggesting that Obama is too weak in dealing with Putin. For five years, the mainstream U.S. media can’t get beyond goading Obama to increase U.S. intervention in Syria and thus bring about another “regime change.”

Despite the contrary evidence, it has remained a beloved Washington delusion that some “moderate” oppositionists would replace Assad and bring a happy democracy to Syria. Similar delusions preceded the catastrophes of “regime change” in Iraq and Libya – and one could even go back to the Reagan administration’s “regime change” goal in Afghanistan that led to the emergence of the Taliban, Al Qaeda and modern jihadism in the first place.

But today the stakes include a potential nuclear showdown with Russia — with the United States being urged to take on that existential risk for all humankind on behalf of preserving Al Qaeda’s hopes for raising its black flag over Damascus. If there has ever been a crazier demand by major foreign policy players in Official Washington, it is hard to imagine what it might have been.
