Some critical Vietnam war history not taught in American schools and news media

President John F. Kennedy
Dr. Martin Luther King

U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy

Aftermath of my conversations with a most interesting fellow reported in the two previous shootings off the mouth at this blog;

Ol’ Flawriduh Cracker Jan 29 
Sloan, I will check out your work. Your commentary and views make me wonder if we weren't separated at birth. A bit tied up this day, but will be back to give feedback.

Sloan Bashinsky Jan 29
Hilarious. Should I pray for you? No rush on getting back to me. Used your and my musings in my blog posts yesterday (Not belonging to a political party, rhymes with religion, cult, etc., is liberating 😎) and today (When you start a new country with an evil such as human slavery driving much of its economy, there is going to be karma playing out around that for quite a while, if not longer).  
 
By the way, I have developed the view, which the angels on my case seem to favor, that JFK, MLK and RFK were killed because they opposed a war in Vietnam. Look today at the furor from the right over President Biden pulling America out of the Afghanistan war, even though he simply was doing what President Trump had said he was going to do. There was no way to get out of Afghanistan cleanly, even as there was no way to get out of the Vietnam war cleanly. 
 
Sloan Bashinsky Jan 30
That last comment was on my mind when I turned in around midnight and again on my mind when I woke about 6 a.m. today. So, I wrote up my view of the assassinations of JFK, MLK and RFK. Then I got my wish: to go back to sleep, as I was thinking of two times I had jolting revelations about the Vietnam war. In my sleep, a man, whose voice I did not recognize, asked me, "Can you continue?" I woke up, thought about the two jolting revelations, thought the voice might be yours, and fell back asleep again, and dreamed about something else going on in my life. I get lots of information and direction and correction in dreams. 
 
Anyway, the two jolting Vietnam war revelations:

(1) In mid-1988, my father invited me to attended a Downtown Birmingham Rotary Club luncheon with him. This was a top shelf club, its members prominent or children of prominent members. The guest speaker was the CEO (or President or Executive Director) of the National Geographic. His topic was "Getting to Know Our Neighbors." He said the Geographic had come to think many conflicts between nations were caused, at least in part, by people not knowing much about people in other countries. He said a study had revealed that 95 percent of American high school and college students could not locate Vietnam on a map.

After the speaker finished his talk, he invited questions, The first question was, "Did the Geographic have a position on the Vietnam war?" The speaker said the Geographic had correspondents in Saigon, where there was a huge street demonstration of people carrying posters begging America to save them. The posters were in English . That demonstration was seen all over America television news. It swung American sentiment from against to for American military intervention in South Vietnam.

The speaker said the Geographic's correspondents spoke Vietnamese and French and they interviewed many of the demonstrators, who said they had been paid money by the Saigon government to demonstrate and carry the posters They did not speak English and did not know what was on the posters or why they were demonstrating. The speaker said the Geographic did some digging and learned the money for the demonstration had been paid by American corporations and the U.S. Government.  

You could have heard a pin drop in the Rotary Club. Many of the older members, including my father, were WW II combat veterans. My father look like he was going to throw up. He had never liked the Vietnam war. He said nothing about it the, nor during the drive back to where he had picked me up to go to the luncheon with him. He never spoke of it later.

(2) In the spring of 2005, I joined a "Seekers" group, who met weekly in a Unitarian Church in Key West. The church minister, who just happened to be from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, attended each meeting. There were about ten of us. We talked about on and of-off beat topics. 
 
One day, a fellow maybe 10 years my senior, said he had worked for the CIA and was stationed with a CIA team in South Vietnam when the French were trying to retake Vietnam and regain access to its rubber trees and other national recourses. Although publicly the American government was backing France, his team's mission was to help Ho Chi Minh beat the French, so America could have access to Vietnam's rubber trees and other natural resources. He said that Ho wanted to do business with America, but in the end America wanted too much. Not caring at all for Communist China, Ho sought the Soviet Union's help. 
 
I sat in my chair waiting on a response from the other group members. No one said anything. I asked, "Did you hear what he just said?" There was no response. It was like being among the walking dead. Seekers? That older man and I became somewhat friends. He received copies of my shootings off of my mouth. We bumped into each other every now and then in Key West. Sometimes I retold that on my blog. Last year, a Key west reader of the blog told me he knew the same man, who had told him the same story with a lot more details.

Not to mention the false flag Gulf of Tonkin resolution in the U.S. Congress, which put all of the above skullduggery into full play and led to America eventually being split about down the middle until Evil Republican Monster Richard Nixon got elected President and got America out of the Evil Democrat Monster President Lyndon Johnson's rich white man$ Vietnam war, about like Evil Commie Lover Democrat Joe Biden much later got America out of Evil Republican Monsters George W. Bush and Richard Cheney's rich white man$ Afghanistan war, for which Biden had voted in favor when he was in the U.S. Congress.

I read in my Apple newsfeed this morning articles about President Biden saying he will not send American troops into Ukraine if Russia invades that country. I do truly hope Biden sticks to his position. There also is news talk of very heavy economic sanctions, which would wreak havoc inside of Russia and perhaps backfire on Biden politically, upheave the stock markets, and get massive cyber counter attacks from Russia and Russia stops sending Western Europe natural gas and oil, and world oil prices will skyrocket. Perhaps instead, Biden just freezes the bank and securities accounts (Magnitsky Act) of all Russian nationals in America and deports them back to Mother Russia post haste. The other Mafias in America would love that!

Meanwhile, will President Biden ever get American troops out of Iraq?

When you start a new country with an evil such as human slavery driving much of its economy, there is going to be karma playing out around that for quite a while, if not longer.


Charlottesville protest

Continuation of my discussion with Ol' Flawriduh Cracker in yesterday's Not belonging to a political party (rhymes with religion, cult, etc.) is liberating 😎

Sloan Bashinsky

You're a riot, for real :-). Meanwhile, Trump and his Heilers conveniently ignore his own hand-picked Attorney General William Barr said there was no voter/election fraud. Not belonging to a political party (rhymes with religion, cult, etc.) is liberating 😎.
    
Ol’ Flawriduh Cracker

Barr - I think giving DOJ legal sanction to a coup de’tat per his script for 1/6/21 and taking the fall when it failed (Trump always pushes his minions under the bus) was a bridge too far. It wasn’t that he didn’t love the idea, but his finger prints would definitely be all over the murder weapon.

PS here’s my substack: https://olflawriduhcracker.substack.com/p/onward-christian-soldiers?r=38b45&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web
    
Sloan Bashinsky

Looked to me Barr threw himself under the bus, when he said there was no voter/election fraud. Thanks for link to your substack. I went there and left a long comment under your Onward Christian Soldiers post. I started a substack, but that was about as far as it went. For years, I have published at a blog, which mostly is just me shooting off my mouth so I can hear myself :-).

My Two Senses

Onward Christian Soldiers
From Puritan Roots to Christian Nationalism: How "Gawd" Sanctions Fascism

Ol’ Flawriduh Cracker
Jan 26

Apologies — Before moving on to my goal of how the JFK/MLK/RFK assassinations served as the inspiration for a Fascist takeover of the nation today.
A Brief Look at the Reality
I hate to be heavy handed in what Christian Nationalism’s tenets and strategies are about, but I just don’t want to leave you with the impression that we are dealing with Tammy Faye Baker here, but here’s what we just might well be dealing with:
Propagating the hatred of Jews for the killing of Christ.
To this day, the elimination of Jews is high on the list, or at least until Jesus returns to kill them all if you are a Dominionist.
Dominionism (aka Christian Resoncstructionism)
One of the great writers reflecting the danger of CN is Chris Hedges lays it out this way":
> This new ideology is about taking control of all institutions, including the government, to build a “Christian” nation. Rousas John Rushdoony, in his 1973 book, The Institutes of Biblical Law, first articulated it. Rushdoony argued that God gives the elect, just as he gave Adam and Noah, dominion over the earth to build a Christian society. Their state will come about with the physical eradication of the forces of Satan. It is the duty of the church and the elect to “rescue” the world so Christ can return.
> There will be no separation of church and state. The only legitimate voices will be “Christian.” America, they believe, will become an agent of God. Those who defy the “Christian” authorities will be agents of Satan.
Slavery in America
Using non whites (almost exclusively Africans), White Europeans found a means to extract wealth from newly discovered lands that resulted in over 10 million people under chattel slavery between 1861-1865. This “peculiar institution” has crippled the nation since our Constitution was written, that enabled it to flourish.
Calvinistic in today’s Christian Nationalism gave moral justification and religious sanction to slavery and the racist agenda of the Slave States. This “Biblical” justification lingers to this day, by perpetuating the “Curse of Ham” (not talking Jewish dietary belief) an early passage in Genesis that somehow shows that Blacks were driven from the future world and society, because Ham was not White apparently.
This is only a smattering of how the White Anglo Saxon mythology is conjoined with Christian Nationalism that has generated the deaths of tens of millions to insure wealth, power and safety of a relative few in perpetuity.
God, the Bible, and Christianity are nowhere mentioned in the Constitution. Yet the blatant lies of “The Christian Nation” constantly depict the Founders as deeply adherent and pious Christians. While at best agnostic it is safe to assume that Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Madison and Monroe were Deists. A belief that flies in the face of Christian Nationalism, yet they consistently are converted to staunch conservative Christians by what is really the American version of the Taliban.
The sole reference to religion is in Article VI, which proscribes religious tests for public office, and thereby established a principle of religious equality that has, over time, similarly precluded religious tests for citizenship, voting, or for immigrants and refugees. Yet the CNs work diligently to meld Church with state.
This post is but smattering of what the CNs have in store for this nation. If you ever have need of legalized abortion, want public education to remain, believe in the rights of LGBTQs to be full citizens, hope as a person of color can also enjoy all the rights of citizenship without suffering “secret segregation”, then please continue to my next post.

Sloan Bashinsky
Heh, Thomas Jefferson was a Deist. I read where he led the charge to stop his home state Virginia's legislature from adopting Christianity as that state's official religion. There are four separate references to Deity in the Declaration of Independence, and none of them resemble Christian lingo. 

Amendment I, US Constitution

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances. 

Very simply, there is no reasoning with fanatics: religious, political, or otherwise. Nor is there reasoning with members of cults, or people under demonic influence. 
Where would the Devil hide where nobody would think to look? In a church.
Looks to this former practicing attorney that the American right today resembles the budding Nazis in 1930s Germany, and they could care less what you or I think or say. They are convinced  God is on their side, and that's not open to debate in their minds.
Toss in they are convinced blacks stole the 2020 election, because Donald Trump told them so. You know that because of the sea of white faces that stormed the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021, and the seas of white faces at Trump rallies. 
The Democrats are so disarrayed with all their squabbling, they seem not to see that their division is manna from heaving for the red spectrum in America.
I hope America putting In God We Trust on its money, of all places, and under God in its Pledge of Allegiance has or will inspire God to swoop in and show America just what trusting in and being under God really is. 
In the Old Testament is said, fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom ...
Meanwhile, I wonder if black American troops that end up in godless wars like Afghanistan and Iraq, ever think they are fighting rich white men's wars for profit, or simply, are basically picking rich white men's cotton?
Three nights before 9/11, the voice I associate with Archangel Michael asked me in my sleep, "Will you make a prayer for a Divine Intervention for all of humanity?" I woke up, made the prayer, wondered what that was about? On 9/11, my concern was America would get into another Vietnam-like war, It did not occur to me that it would be two such wars. A few days after 9/11, as I left a US Post Office, a heard, "America needs to get out of the Middle East altogether and Israel and Islam work it out or fight it out, and in that way learn if they are God's chosen people, or not. 
Had a Jewish friend once, we were best friends at that time, who was prone to go rabid over anything he viewed as antisemitism. I had to be very careful about how I talked about Jews. He got tangled up with the same angels that had conscripted me. By and by, he told me he had been told that the reason the Jews, as a people, had suffered so much over time, was because Jews had rejected (not killed, but rejected) the Christ. He was disheveled. He asked me if I already knew that? I have some Jewish ancestry. I said, yes. He asked why I not said anything? I said, because he was so easy to set off, and there was no way he would accept it from me.
Did you ever read The Spear of Destiny, by Trevor Ravenscroft? My Jewish friend read it and was pretty much blown away. The core is how a demonic entity gained access into the young Adolf Hitler and enhanced him, and then did the same with Hitler's inner circle. People who are not mystics, or at least interested in mysticism, don't seem capable of appreciating that book. Yet, something similar is playing out in the Trumplican Party.
America's founding fathers were white supremacists, in the main. When you start a new country with an evil such as human slavery driving much of its economy, there is going to be karma playing out around that for quite a while, if not longer.

Not belonging to a political party (rhymes with religion, cult, etc.) is liberating 😎.

For example, this discussion thread under American Historian (Democrat) Heather Cox Richardson's January 21, 2022 letter:
 https://heathercoxrichardson.substack.com/p/january-21-2022
    
Sloan Bashinsky
Based on all this Independent former practicing attorney reads, sees on TV, on Facebook and hears in personal conversations, in the main, Republicans and their MAGA siblings could care less what the rest of America, and the rest of the world, think about January 6. What they care about is making sure they retake the White House and all of Congress at the ballot box, and from all I am seeing and hearing, they are making serious progress in that direction. It may well be that the only way to stop them is for Donald Trump to be seized and put on one of Elon Musk's rockets and deported to Mars, as the wheels of justice, perhaps should be in quotation marks, might move a tad too slow to to prevent Trump from being reelected again. And to prevent him from inciting the same folks and intimidating Republicans in office who do not bow down and kiss his feet. Even as I recently saw on CNN, Erin Burnett, that President Biden's approval rating had dropped to 33 percent, and among Independents, it had dropped to 25 percent. I'm among the 75 percent, who am not impressed with Biden's 1st year in the White House, but I for sure won't vote for Trump or Mike Pence, but I might vote for Elizabeth Cheney.
    
Ol’ Flawriduh Cracker
Sloan, You are right. Like Hitler and other despots they want the legitimacy of elections to give cover to the fact that they rigged them. Unless you figure that 37% of the voting electorate is actually 70% or higher.
At the rate revelations on the plot are being exposed to daylight I’m thinking that ultimately (maybe before 2002) that Biden will declare that he has to stop the plot and work thought the details under a State of National Emergency. My further prediction is that Miley and Generals supportive of the Constitution are removing the traitors from the ranks.
I know scary, but everyone thought I lacked credulity on the 2008 meltdown of which I was 8 months ahead, They also looked at me like I was talking about Harry Potter over the Bush/Cheney WMD fiasco, when I said the whole thing was yet another play to get rich on oil with American blood. Finally, I was spot on about the genuine coup (which is still in progress toward plan B)
But, it’s like this. The plotters are stopped or I’ll see you soon a Texas border combined deportation and reeducation camp. Not a joke.
    
Sloan Bashinsky
I think Biden should have begun right away, based on the raw film footage of Trump and the Jan 6 mob, and Mitch McConnell's instant condemnation of Trump, to have Trump seized and held in a high security undisclosed federal detention center, without bail, because of the very clear and present danger he then was to America.
I have no idea what Miley, etc. are doing with a U.S Military that probably is 50 percent +- pro Trump.
I doubt the Heilers intend to deport the non-Heilers and the south of the border immigrant workers, because they need them to keep the American economic machinery working. Imagine America with no Democrats paying taxes and no Hispanic immigrants doing manual labor?
I missed the 2008 meltdown, but was told in a dream that year, by Archangel Michael, that Barack Obama had the potential to be the Antichrist, which he proved shortly after being sworn in by accepting the Nobel Prize for Peace while waging the 2 Bush-Cheney right white men for profit war$: Afghanistan and Iraq.
Looks to me Biden's choice of Kamala Harris as a running mate was unfortunate, as she seems to be a very young girl in a grown up body.
 
 
Ol’ Flawriduh Cracker
I don’t have a real bone to pick with your reply. I really am amazed that Biden did not use the PEADs (Presidential Emergency Action Directives) to “lock him up” especially since Trump and his Minions were only a step away in doing the same thing to Biden, based on the exposed planning documents and Power Points now in the hands of the 1/6/21 Committee. I think a lot had to do with fear of going into an immediate Lebanese Civil War. An outcome that I think gives far too much credit to the coordinating abilities of the Fascist Far Right.
I guess the real % of Officers that would support a right wing coup is at present going to remain a mystery. My rule of thumb is to apply what I’ve called the “37% rule.” That seems to crop up in virtually any gauge of support for Fascism in almost any issue before us.
My observation about illegal immigrants is that they play the same function as did immigrant Jews fleeing Russia to live in 1920’s and 30’s Germany as a political foil to feed meat to the Base.
Oh, I assure you were Trump to achieve his coup and/or a return to Fascist rule in 2024 that the economics of our nation will be just fine, as you may recall the trains ran on time in Italy under Mussolini.
Capitalism and Fascism are not and never were enemies and in fact both will take a back seat to the return of Fedualism by 2050 at the rate things are going.

When people who are not blond dye their hair some shade of blond, is that a statement in favor of white supremacy, since blond peoples historically were white people?

This below was posted into an online spirituality forum and I joined into the discussion a couple of times and borrowed a small part for this post today:

O
Anyone feeling the negativity of life suddenly increasing as of late without having any significant changes in your life?
I'm not sure why, but life has seemingly only felt worse since 2022 started. Nothing significant has happened but it seems everyone's mood and energy has been on the downtrend as of late.
Maybe it's just current state of life and there could still be plenty of people feeling great as usual. Just wanted to hear how everyone is doing. Have you noticed an uptick of negativity in the air?
It feels like since the start of the year my positive energy has been slowly taken away, either by the general well being of earth or other people. How is everyone else holding up as of late?
I just feel drained for no particular reason these days.

Me
"Nothing significant has happened?"
Do you watch TV? Read online news reports? Talk with people about what is going on in America and elsewhere?
The American right is reminiscent of 1930s Germany. The American left reminds of the Fukwai tribe, which is forever getting lost and gathering in a circle and sitting down and chanting, "Where the fuck are we? Where the fuck are we?" The American middle is disenfranchised.
President Biden's approval rating is 33 percent generally, 25 percent with Independents - according to CNN about 10 days ago.
The right seems to have successfully rigged voting in many red states. The American left and middle just might wake up soon and realize the right has taken over America, along with its God is on our side and the other side works for the Devil mantra.
Meanwhile, perhaps your own life is where you should delve for negativity. Your personal relations. Your personal outlooks. I don't know you. Do you take fearless personal inventories? Does your spiritual guidance stand you in front of mirrors? My guidance gets onto me about me ongoing. I also am put to speaking about what's going on in America.
I had this thought come to me from out of the blue yesterday. When people who are not blond dye their hair some shade of blond, is that a statement in favor of white supremacy, since blond peoples historically were white people?
When you look at the January 6 mob, when you look at photos of Trump rallies, you sea seas of white faces and every now and then a different color face.

R
This may sound bad but I'm really tired of living in such a negative world, it feels like it's just gotten worse as I've gotten older. Maybe that's just a part of aging and getting a clearer picture of the world, but damn what can honestly be done to make everyone be more peaceful and positive.

S
The world is birthing a new era; this is the transmutation of energy. nothing can be done except for the process to continue and for each of us individually to transmute our own energy—to see ourselves and each other for what we truly are and to move through life with love and grace.

N
What can you do to make everyone be more peaceful and positive? Nothing. But making yourself more peaceful and positive benefits a part of the population beyond yourself.
You can be a small beacon of peace and happiness and self contentment that shows those around you what is possible, and gives them hope.

L
This is everything. This should be the goal.

N
Your words are enthusiastic. That's neat! I don't wish to diminish your enthusiasm in the least, just temper it a bit. When steel is tempered, it remains strong but doesn't easily break.
This idea is something. To say it is everything I think is an overreach. And it can be your goal, if you so choose, but it's not a universal goal. Not all that glitters is golden. Not everyone here can be someone else's beacon.
One reason we cannot unify everyone is we are not all here for the same reason and on the same path, nor did we start from the same place. People will be where they are at in this life, and it's not for me to judge that place. Doing so sets up an impossibility for both of us.
If you step back and look at us, down here on the planet earth, it might look like a school. But there are no classrooms, no grades, no formal tests or graduations. Lessons aplenty, but no formal school for spirits.
And yet everyone learns or adapts or gets through stuff or passes on by. Everyone is on their own path. What a miracle of life.

Me
My experience is there very much are schools and there very much is grading, of each person, tailored specifically to each person, because, as you said, everyone is on their own path. We can spiritually expand, stay the same, or retreat. How we live our lives is reviewed after we cross over, we get to see everything clearly, whether we want to see it clearly or not. Then begins the next part of our soul journey. Unfortunately, that is not part of what western religion thinks. Yet, when I look at Eastern religions, and aborigine religions, which recognize the continuum of a soul's journey in time and space, I wonder about people in those traditions who behave as if karma does not exist? As I wonder about my own behavior and karma, and wonder why Western religions carry on as if there is no such thing as karma?

There is no need to attend church or be a Christian. Simply try to live as Jesus in the Gospels advised. That is what being saved by Jesus really is about.

Jesus with leper

Today being Sunday, when most Christians attend church...

The lament below in a large spirituality forum showed up in my newsfeed last night ...

M
Is Christianity using fear to manipulate people?
If it is that's really messed up. I find myself when I'm really miserable seeking salvation and thinking Jesus might be it. Then i kinda of turn Christian for a day and snap out of it the next. I read the Bible and see the nasty things it says about homosexuals, the contradictions and just plain absolute nonsense. Some stuff in there really makes no sense and i don't get why god would make me so confused.
Anyway, it seems like it feeds off of peoples desperate need for wanting some loving force out there. Either way, i do believe in something else but there's no real definite answers.
It really makes me depressed and almost atheistic.
I wish there was hope, i wish that miracles were real and that we all have a purpose, but with almost 9 billion people including animals and our habitats we can't help everyone. What does one do to know the truth?

P
yes. yes it is using fear.. true christianity, true ANY religion really, is nothing but love, and all the beautiful things that branch from that. anything that evokes fear is patriarchally corrupted religion
just follow love… your own heart.. self love. that is the core of all religion

Me
The Jesus in the Gospels was a soul alchemist in the truest sense. There were others before him and afterward, but he was v-e-r-y advanced. What is reported about him in the Gospels and in later letters in the New Testament is (a) very abbreviated and (b) written by people of very limited understanding compared to Jesus in the Gospels. Of the authors in the New Testament, the scribe of the Letter to the Hebrews was v-e-r-y tuned in. Biblical scholars today, in the main, don't know who wrote that letter. I was told by angels it was written by Mary Magdalene, who was Jesus' partner in all ways.
Another v-e-r-y advanced person in the Gospels was Judas, who did what Jesus asked him to do, because they both knew he was the only person who would do it. The three of them were a team, a triad, which is spiritual alchemy circles - triad - has some significance. Advanced souls as those three were, they were stretched to their limits. That is what spiritual alchemy is: being stretched to our limits.
The religion that became Christianity did not heavily "preach" that part of what Jesus was about, because it wanted lots of recruits. So, the that religion preached a cheap, fast ticket to eternal life and used fear of dying and burning forever in hell to encourage recruits to sign up and, of course, donate money to that religion's churches. Jesus and his close disciples were called to serve God, as I was raised to call the Source, and they did it for free.
The Pharisee Saul, who became Paul after being accosted and struck blind by Jesus on the road to Damascus, did not ask his followers for donations. After the road to Damascus experience, Paul endured a searing transition, a very small part of which is related in Acts of the Apostles and Paul's letters. Unfortunately, Paul condemned homosexuality without full disclosure. He wrote that he had a thorn in the flesh, which he had asked God to remove and God had replied the thorn would help Paul grow - be stretched. The thorn was Paul was gay. As far as I know, there is nothing in anything Paul wrote that he ever married or had children, which was his solemn duty as a Jewish man. Paul claimed to be celibate. He encouraged his followers to be celibate. He placed women below men in their relationship with the Christ. He caused a great deal of harm to the collective soul of Christendom, and yet had much good to say, which people needed to hear and do and be spiritually stretched thereby.
Jesus was stretched to and beyond his human limits. As were his disciples after they were taken over by the Holy Spirit - Shekinah, feminine - in Judaism- and were grown into adults God could use. They no longer drank milk but ate meat, and were teachers, as said in the Letter to the Hebrews. Like Jesus and Paul, they were able to and did perform what today would be called miracles. But that was a very small part of what they were about, which was continuing and expanding the new paradigm - way of living - Jesus had brought and taught which he called the baptism and fire and in spirit, which he lived himself as he taught it.
The early church fastened on the miracles, and Christian churches today place a great deal more emphasis on those miracles, instead of on the baptism in fire and in spirit, which stretches anyone beyond any limits they could imagine they have or had. 
I am not speaking here from what I read or heard someone else say. I am speaking from the direct experience of living Jesus' baptism, which for me began in early 1987. It was progressive after that, I was made ready for each next step. Made ready by angels, whose names are known in the Bible: Jesus, Michael and Melchizedek, and by the Holy Spirit, which I had come to also call, Rosa Mystica. The female side of God, Christendom had made male, even though She is called Shekinah in Judaism. An all-male Trinity - hmm, how does it reproduce?
I was taught that sexually different people are not evil, but simply are different, and they have their own relationship with God, and with Jesus, regardless of what much of Christendom thinks, believes or says. Did not Jesus in the Gospels tell his disciples he had other flocks of which they were unaware and to judge not and God would not judge them?
What it seems M needs is direct intervention, like I and a few people I have known experienced. But then, that seems to me to be what humanity needs :-), Yet, could humanity accept such a thing? Could humanity endure and survive the baptism in fire and in spirit? I don't know, and I don't know if angels have that much time on their hands, or permission from God to do it.
So, for those who do not get conscripted and turned inside out and upside down and every which away but loose by angels allegiant to God, the raw teachings of Jesus in the Gospels, about how to live and move closer to God, are a very true and very steep soul alchemy path. There is no need to attend church or be a Christian. Simply try to live as Jesus in the Gospels advised. That is what being saved by Jesus really is about.

Do the Democrats really understand what is going on in America?

Do the Democrats really understand what is going on in America?  Consider this bunker buster letter from American Historian Heather Cox Richardson and some reader comments.

January 21, 2022

On Wednesday, January 19, by a vote of 8 to 1, the Supreme Court refused to block the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) from releasing documents produced by the Trump White House to the House Select Committee to Investigate the January 6th Attack on the U.S. Capitol. Last night, NARA handed over hundreds of pages of documents to the committee. Today, Betsy Woodruff Swan at Politico published one of them.

Hoo, boy.

It was an unsigned executive order dated December 16, 2020, just two days after the false Trump electors in seven states executed documents falsely saying Trump had won the election in their states. The executive order charges that there is “evidence of international and foreign interference in the November 3, 2020, election.” It went on to echo the lies that the campaign peddled after Trump’s loss.

Those complaints were used to justify using the National Guard to seize the nation’s election machines (ironically, the most intrusive possible federal interference in state elections from the leader of a party that just killed a voting rights bill on the alleged grounds it was federal overreach).

The order told the secretary of defense to “seize, collect, retain and analyze all machines, equipment, electronically stored information, and material records” from the election. It gave the defense secretary power to call up the National Guard to support him and told the assistant secretary of defense for homeland security to provide support from the Department of Homeland Security.

The secretary of defense had 60 days to provide an assessment to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, suggesting that the process would continue after Inauguration Day.

The executive order also provided for “[t]he appointment of a Special Counsel to oversee this operation and institute all criminal and civil proceedings as appropriate based on the evidence collected and provided all resources necessary to carry out her duties consistent with federal laws and the Constitution.”

Aside from the eye-popping content, the executive order gives us some hints of who was behind it.

The document cites two National Security Presidential Memoranda—numbers 13 and 21—to justify the emergency powers Trump planned to assume. That citation revealed that this was no run-of-the-mill bananas proposition: the existence of Memorandum 21 was not publicly known. Its inclusion in this document suggests the author had access to sensitive government secrets. Tonight, Hugo Lowell of The Guardian noted that the National Security Council would not say anything about what National Security Presidential Memo 21 authorizes.

The proposed special counsel was likely Trump attorney Sidney Powell, who was lobbying to become a special counsel at the time this executive order was drafted. Indeed, she may have had a hand in drafting it, although lawyer Rick Petree noted that the important role of the secretary of defense suggests that Trump loyalist Kash Patel might have been involved as well. After he lost the election, Trump fired Secretary of Defense Mark Esper and replaced him with Acting Secretary of Defense Christopher Miller, making Patel Miller’s chief of staff where he exercised unusual authority.

Washington reporter for Reuters Brad Heath noted that people close to Sidney Powell said Trump authorized this executive order before his staff talked him out of it.

Tonight, Trump lawyer Boris Epshteyn, who was subpoenaed by the January 6 committee on January 18 along with Trump lawyers Rudy Giuliani, Sidney Powell, and Jenna Ellis, told MSNBC’s Ari Melber that he and “the Trump legal team” were part of the plan to create the false electors. While he claimed that what they did was legal, he pushed responsibility for the plan onto Giuliani as the one in charge.

And today the election threats task force in the Department of Justice launched its first case against a man accused of threatening lawmakers. Today, the FBI arrested 54-year-old Chad Christopher Stark of Leander, Texas, who posted a message on Craigslist on January 5, 2021, offering $10,000 to kill Georgia lawmakers. He wrote: “Georgia Patriots it’s time for us to take back our state from these Lawless treasonous traitors.” “[I]t’s time to put a bullet” into certain officials, because “[i]t’s our duty as American Patriots to put an end to the lives of these traitors and take back our country by force we can no longer wait on the corrupt law enforcement in the corrupt courts.” In language that echoes that of genocidal movements, he wrote: “If we want our country back we have to exterminate these people.”

He concluded: “Remember one thing local law enforcement… we will find you oathbreakers and we’re going to pay your family to visit your mom your dad your brothers and sisters your children your wife… we’re going to make examples of traitors to our country… death to you and your communist friends.”

The story of January 6 came perilously close to a different ending.

Based on all this Independent former practicing attorney reads, sees on TV, on Facebook and hears in personal conversations, in the main, Republicans and their MAGA siblings could care less what the rest of America, and the rest of the world, think about January 6. What they care about is making sure they retake the White House and all of Congress at the ballot box, and from all I am seeing and hearing, they are making serious progress in that direction. It may well be that the only way to stop them is for Donald Trump to be seized and put on one of Elon Musk's rockets and deported to Mars, as the wheels of justice, perhaps should be in quotation marks, might move a tad too slow to to prevent Trump from being reelected again. And to prevent him from inciting the same folks and intimidating Republicans in office who do now bow down and kiss his feet. Even as I recently saw on CNN, Erin Burnett, that President Biden's approval rating had dropped to 33 percent, and among Independents, it had dropped to 25 percent. I'm among the 75 percent, who am not impressed with Biden's 1st year in the White House, but I for sure won't vote for Trump or Mike Pence, but I might vote for Elizabeth Cheney.

I know this is very serious excrement, but I propose we lighten the mood with some hyperbolic predictions and questions and see if anyone comes even close to the eventual truth.
Plane(? Planes) at Mira-a Lago, fueled and ready. Who is allowed and who is left behind? Melania(aka Red Sparrow) would certainly have her own Putin jetliner. Ivanka and Jared must be contemplating calling Liz Cheney for a deal. Leave Eric behind with the rest of the baggage. And how fast is Guilfoyle going to give back that ring(is it appraised?).
Importantly, do the Russians living in Trump Tower leave now? Does anyone in Trump properties continue to pay rent or fees? Are there sudden job vacancies at Deutsche Bank?
Are these documents the reason for Pompeo's weight loss? And where is Lindsey Graham? Is Stephen Miller calling Lukashenko about asylum? Where is William Barr?
Does the Secret Service detail with djt have an endless supply of burner phones recording conversations? And pics? Any undercover FBI agents feeding info to Attorney General Garland? Super secret Special Prosecutor and Special Grand Jury?
How many quiet divorce papers are being filed by Republican spouses?
Ok, early morning stream of consciousness palaver. Sorry if anyone is offended.

Bill Alstrom
None of your ramblings would even be surprising...that is the pathetic state of affairs in our body politic. We are living out a movie that no studio would have ever made made because the script was so insanely stupid. Put nothing past a leader who would let Sidney Powell guide him. Or Steven Miller. Or Rudy. Or the other Steve. Or Roger (not the rabbit).
I actually suspect that Rupert Murdoch has been orchestrating everything from a mansion in Australia. After infesting his home nation, he put Boris in charge of the UK. Then he was bored and he hired O'Reilly, Hannity and then Carlson to run the US via the puppet called Trump. I bet Rupert and Putin have Zoom drinks together and laugh at how gullible and dumb Americans are.
It is as if an asylum released all it's inmates and they simply walked into the White House.
It is inexplicable.

Sloan Bashinsky
Very unfortunately, this is not a movie, but is all too reminiscent of Germany in the 1930s, and of Russia after the revolution there, and even Russia today. After Putin was made president for life, Trump said he liked that idea. He was dead serious. Trump, the MAGAs and nearly all Republicans in Congress, and in America, want to run America as they see fit, and they have no remorse for January 6. Whatever it takes to take over America is what they they are willing to attempt. We know this, because of how they treat January 6. They wish it had succeeded. Otherwise, they'd be howling for criminal prosecutions of the instigators, Trump on down. I was in a deposition yesterday with a young lady attorney who is proud she worked in the U.S. Department of Justice under Attorney Generals Jeff Sessions and William Barr. She is a Trumper. She is very smart, but I wonder if her soul is even engaged with her body and her mind? I am in my 80th year. What happens in America won't affect me all that much longer, but it will affect my children and their families. The entire world should shudder over an America run by the hard right, who are convinced God is on their side.

Lawyer representing Trumper asked me where I stand on Covid-19 and I told her to read my blog today

I told the lawyer that I had three Pfizer jabs and take something (quercetin and Vitamin C) to transport zinc into body cells, where zinc inhibits coronavirus replication, and she should read my blog today.

Just by happenstanceπŸ˜‰, MaddieMom's comment down below had come in early this morning.

Dr Zev Has Been Banned and Threatened, You Need to Hear This!

Rumble — Dr Zev Zelenko has been a family physician for 20 years. When Covid tore through NY in March 2020, his office visits went from 50 visits a day to 250 a day. He is the reason Trump took HCQ. His research and real-life experiences are something that every American needs to hear!

SloanBashinsky, 
What I wonder is why it took Mr. Harris so long to get acquainted with and share with his audience what I have known about since May 2020, and then tracked, and tracked, and tracked, as Democrats/the Left, the Mainstream Media, the Medical Industrial Complex, much of the right, and President Trump by caving in to the witch hunts and burnings, allowed the greatest crime against humanity in this century, the Devil literally walking on the earth in plain view? 
How about someone, say Mr. Harris, with clout, trying waking Sleepy Joe up with this video, followed by Sleepy Joe sitting down face to face with Dr. Zelenko, followed by Sleepy Joe doing what the Orange Flake didn't have the cojones to do. Make zinc and HCQ freely available in America, which will defeat the nice gift (bioweapon) from Red China, and put an end to all the Covid 19 mayhem in America, and perhaps that will be contagious and the other countries will follow suit, then they can get back to doing the things they did before the world turned upside down, for better and for worse, including killing the planet, which perhaps is rooting hard for Covid 19 to rescue it from humanity?

MaddieMom
Leave Trump out of it. He was being fooled just like you and the rest
If us were at first. Trump loves Americans and was trying to get everyone covered. You don’t have cajones.

SloanBashinsky
Actually, Trump caved to the backlash and witch hunts, perhaps because he feared losing too many votes, perhaps because his cajones were not as big as he claimed, perhaps because he was not a very stable genius at all, but was about as smart as, say, Joe Biden, who had criticized Trump for promoting hydroxychloroquine and zinc.  As you see, I’m not a lefty, nor a righty. I am for what is best for America, and Dr. Zelenko’s cure would have spared America (and thereafter the world) a lot of deaths and maimings from Covid-10 and its variants, and would have allowed America and the world to remain open. The mask and then the vaccine wars would have been trumped and headed off at the past. Right, not way enough Americans, right or left or middle, were smart enough to put their trust in Dr. Zelenko’s early stage infection cure, which kept his at risk patients out of hospitals. Instead of attacking me, you could have promoted Dr. Zelenko’s cure be implemented now – if you had the conjones and smarts, anyway.

Hostmom
Knew it!!!!! Said it, no one would believe me that America had been HAD, sold to china and the left is proud of this..the only thing missing in today's horrendous nightmare is Schindler......this is Biden's list!!! MURDERING thousands upon thousands....for the new world order, the great reset.....SATAN!!!! This is media/agenda/warfare.....to destroy America and all she stands for!!! GOD help us!!!!! I hope all rot in HELL.....shame on all doctors that never ever prescribed Hydroxy..that would have saved lives!!!! Covid..go home..stay home, rot....we don't care..is what happened.......stay home...NO RX...nothing...stay home.....Trump was right.....100% all because of the hate for Trump and America......GOD come now!!!!

SloanBashinsky
Well, Biden did dis Dr. Z and his cure in 2020, but, come on, Trump had the cure in his paws and when he saw it going sideways, did he fire his FDA director and get someone to replace him who would get the cure to the American people? Nope. Trump launched Operation Warp Speed instead, and, my goodness, did the Medical-Industrial Complex love that. I heard recently that Trump had invested in Pfizer. I wonder if he cut a secret deal with them in 2020?

Covid was thought to be pneumonia in the early cases. I had a friend who thinks he got it in November and was in the hospital for days and thought he had pneumonia.

MattRiese,
I caught it in December 2019. At the time, they didn't know what it was so they called it pneumonia. Breathing was uncomfortable for a few days but, it wasn't that bad. I have been around symptomatic positive people often since then and never re-infected. My natural immune system works as it should so, I don't need any vax.

MsDS
I'll take back to July 2019...not all personal details but my doctor stated, ' we are fighting an unknown virus which can turn into pneumonia." Hence, very strong antibiotics needed to fight it off...in others words a "preventive" measure was used based my personal medial history; plus, it helped biggly that I already do holistic and organic approach he said.

SloanBashinsky
Covid19 produces pneumonia. An elderly relative died in early 2021, her family told everyone it was a massive heart attack, they were responsible for looking after her. Her death certificate listed prime cause as Covid19 pneumonia, and underlying cause as NSTEMI, which is a kind of heart attack that usually does not cause death, whereas STEMI is a kind of heart attack that often causes death.
