Mainstream media flash-mobs and a moral revolution in 2016

For very good reasons I share with many Americans a great disdain for politics. As I wrote in a briefly published book, politics as we've known it has become a placebo for action and change, and every election of these past few decades has become an empty waste of time and money. Empty, except for the concrete results of reprogramming American mindsets and beliefs so that a majority accepts without question a completely fictional concept of this world.

Elections have been exceedingly great tools in bringing about a ubiquitous make-believe world reliant on “as if it is true” as its operative premise.

1900 New York voting place
as if it is true that compassion for downtrodden people mandates that we ignore criminal trespassers within our borders.
as if it is true that politicians need not fear that acting against the Federal Reserve will result in a similar death to that of President John F. Kennedy.


as if it is true that carrying a fetus to full term is detrimental to the health of a woman in most cases.
as if it is true political correctness will create a world community in which no person ever have feelings hurt.
as if it is true that fatherless children grow up as emotionally healthy, if not more so, than children of a male and female dyad as parents.


as if it is true that a traditional family is an evil institution that must be eradicated from society.
as if it is true that we must elect a woman to the presidency simply because we have not yet done so.


as if it is true that speaking and writing truthful statements ought to be considered a hate crime.
as if it is true that public expressions of Christian beliefs are punishable offenses.
as if it is true that uninhibited sexual indulgence and exhibitionism are more important to a healthy society than temperance and thoughtful discretion.

Narcissus
as if it is true that individual reluctance to accept and endorse extremism in all its forms and expressions defines an individual as an “intolerant threat to society.”
as if it is true that the media doesn't create flash mobs armed with audio-visual and print weapons to attack and intimidate anyone who dares to think independently.



These are but a few segments of this make-believe world constructed during the past three decades, and a little more.

In a healthy society, media flash mobs would be perceived for what they are: dangerous ad-hoc gangs out to harm people who espouse truth that powers-that-be deem counter to the fictional world they've created and rely upon for continuity of power. Power finds truth extremely discomforting.

But the success of human engineering through media manipulation over these past six decades precludes all of us from living in a healthful society.

Evidence that this is not a healthy society coincident with “advancements” in gender rights, et al? Spontaneous violence in its countless forms that erupts every day; drug use and abuse; sexually transmitted diseases are rampant; unprosecuted murders by family members, strangers, gang members, and medical doctors; prolific, unprosecuted white-collar crime (which remains statistically off the books because the Injustice System refuses to investigate). War. The corruption of every branch of government and those companies that enjoy the largess of government contracts.


Now we are given the opportunity to witness this make-believe world of Hillary Rodham Clinton confronted by the harsh reality of the real world in which crime and punishment come together in old-fashioned justice, and painful truth ignites the fuel of a moral revolution.

Drought Dries up Democrat’s and Republican’s Lives & Assets Equally

Drought is an equal-opportunity killer.

At some earlier time and place I’ve made the observation that being a Democrat and or being a Republican has evolved to a point that it is a religion for some. Recently I’ve been listening to several people who have proven this assessment to be true.

It is now common for me to hear a reference to “The Republicans” followed by an exceedingly negative characteristic of that group, as if that collective body shared the same thoughts, intentions and beliefs. Generally, these comments remind me of that historic period, depicted unfavorably in many films, of war between Catholics and Protestants several hundred years ago; typically the Thirty Years War is representative of those times.

Thirty Years War 
Never – not once in my experience – do these wholesale characterizations of “The Republicans” make sense. The fundamental problem (no pun intended?) is that statements made about “that group, the Republicans” are not actually true. No group thinks, believes or acts with the singularity of mind spoken of by friends or associates who religiously identify themselves as a Democrat.

It is also now common for me to hear a reference to “The Democrats” followed by an exceedingly negative characteristic of that group, as if that collective body shared the same thoughts, intentions and beliefs. Generally, these comments remind me of that historic period, depicted unfavorably in many films, of war between Catholics and Protestants several hundred years ago; typically the Thirty Years War is representative of those times … it is as if history is repeating itself.


Never – not once in my experience – do these wholesale characterizations of “The Democrats” make sense. The fundamental problem (pun intended) is that statements made about “that group, the Democrats” are not actually true. No group thinks, believes or acts with the singularity of mind spoken of by friends or associates who religiously identify themselves as a Republican.


Examples of common absurdities relative to the above cults can be found hereFor many, being a Democrat is clearly a practiced religion. For others, being a Republican is clearly a practiced religion.

Combined, these two groups make up a majority of Americans, both voters and non-voters. Going to the polls to vote is like going to church on Saturday or Sunday; people claim to profess a particular religion but need not attend its services. Thus, the majority of Americans now hold The Government as their primary religion, in practice. Local governments like cities are comparable to parishes or congregations; dioceses are comparable to state governments; the federal government is the supreme body, the Collective of all its members. These “United States” are divided into two enormous sects comparable to the division of nominal Christianity into Protestants and Catholics; we have the Democrat and Republican Parties.

Lincoln Memorial ~ Washington, D.C.  
Historically, as Christianity infamously divided into Protestant and Catholic collectives, almost no one in either group practiced Christianity, as taught by its Founder.  Everyone lived in sin; no one (almost; there were exceptions, the Saints) actually followed the precepts, The Precepts of the Faith. Today, almost no one follows the Laws of the Land. Everyone is a law-breaker; everyone “sins” against the State.

That potentially could be a good thing in some a ways.

Nevertheless, this vehement condemnation of any group of people who think differently precludes this society from solving its problems. {"It is impossible to serve two masters; one must love one and hate the other."} 

Miley Cyrus ~ Self Worship
We are inevitably divided between self-interest and the interests of a greater society. Resolution of this conflict would only be possible if one were wise enough to be a practicing Christian within a Society of practicing Christians. But that we are not and never will be. We are, rather, heading very rapidly in the opposite direction.

Unfortunately, though, the complete saturation of political rhetoric, especially coming through mass media, further alienates one from another. We are told that our future depends upon either the election of a Democrat (woman) or an unknown Republican in 2016. We are told that the future well-being of this country depends upon whether or not we elect one High Priestess, Hillary, or fail to do so by electing a Republican instead. Our choice is between the goddess Isis and doom?


The cold reality is, neither choice will have anything to do with the well-being of Americans over the next decade or two. Neither choice is going to end The Great Drought. Neither Republican nor Democrat in the White House in 2017 will be empowered to stop the horrific consequences of (the exact opposite of the Biblical Great Flood?) the Great Drought that has already begun and which likely is years from ending.  Which president will be able to stop related blizzards descending from the north into densely populated areas of the Northeast and Midwest, and further encroaching into the deep South?


There is a concept called the Constancy of Atmospheric Moisture. Trust that this is a rather complex scientific theory or series of observations and measurements over long periods. Simply put, this means that when one area of this planet experiences prolonged drought, the constant (more or less) total amount of moisture – atmospheric water – falls somewhere else. This can be seen in the microcosm of the Amazon River Basin, as described here: The Amazon Basin

Flooding from the River Trent
When Food Wars break out, and many believe this is inevitably going to occur, will the hostility between Democrats and Republicans determine channels of food distribution? Food Wars are motivated by attrition between “Haves and Have-nots” in the crudest possible way. The fight to survive can and will become brutal. Not paper money, which will become worthless, but food will become currency. Who believes that people – groups of people – will identify themselves by wearing blue shirts or red shirts in order to “fairly” distribute food and other goods essential to life?

Historic Food Riots ~ 19th Century 
Each group, each sect of this American religion, is already primed to blame the other for the shortages to come. Powers That Be, through mass media, are setting up both sides for a blame-and-punishment scenario. It can only get worse as circumstances deteriorate.

World Currencies
Meanwhile, the same scripted media is reporting an “economic recovery” as though monetary trade – a monetized measurement of collective human behavior – is all that matter in determining our well-being. The total number of Dollars, Yen, Shekels, Rubles, Euros, Pesos and Yuan has nothing to do (almost, but that’s another blog topic) with accessibility of water and nutrient-rich soil essential to growing, harvesting and distributing food. 

Today's Reality ~ Dependency of the Masses
The most economical way is always to grow your own, to control your own production of food as close to where you sleep as you possibly can. Give that control to strangers in a far-away place and you become dependent on a global system that is as reliable and as caring as a blizzard or an invading army.

No Water ~ No Crops
Millions of people are, and will be, “looking for a sign in the sky” for what is to come. For millions, already, theat sign is already here: “there are no rain clouds … no rain clouds appearing and now it’s well into monsoon season. This is the third year …” 

The meaning of the Sign that many wait for has always been clear: Pray. We've been told that prayer combined with faith "moves mountains." Through mass media, we are also told repeatedly that our old beliefs have been displaced by SCIENCE, which will produce a Green Utopia in a few years (as long as we obey ... as long as we convert). Hence, there is no place for messages like that below ...

A Place in California
All we need do, we are told to believe, is to elect the right Woman in 2016.

Your bloodline and mine definitely intertwine


So many people today want to blame wars on religion, and use this as an excuse to stay away from organized religion. There is abundant irony in this, and I love irony.

 
Crusader by Vlados7

Christianity, for me, gets most of the blame, partly because people these days are taught that the Crusades created our present wars with jihadists, ISIS, ISIL, and some might find ties to North Korea as well. Irony abounds because Christianity wasn’t practice during those Crusades, except on an individual level, by wives and children who travelled with soldiers and mercenary warriors. Thus it is wrong to blame the Church for bloodshed caused by its unpracticed religion, just as it is wrong to blame the whole of the Islamic world for jihad. 

People were generally ignorant. But they were not ignorant because the Catholic Church of the time wanted to keep them ignorant in order to swell its ranks with Believers. People were ignorant because the fall of the Roman Empire caused a widespread closure of schools, and fewer people became literate.

Yet, Christians knew to a great extent teachings of the Church. They knew, for example, the concept of the Sacred Heart of Yeshua ben Joseph, whim we know as Jesus Christ.  They knew, too, the bloodline of Mary, his biological mother and the concept of her Sacred Heart. Despite that widespread ignorance of the period, these followers knew essential and quite interesting concepts that escape most people today.

Sacred Heart of Jesus

Leap forward in time to the present. Somewhere in this series I’ve written of memory being transferred from person to person in heart transplant operations. A child died suddenly; that child’s heart was transferred into another child, who was a couple of years older. Very detailed memories were recalled in the heart recipient. The surviving child knew the deceased child’s sister, by name and recognition among many other definitive things unique to the deceased child’s family. Books have been written on this subject, and doctors have hit the lecture circuit.

The importance of heart memory over brain memory is, well, astounding.

Christians believe in the Sacred Heart of Yeshua, Jesus Anointed as Our Devine Savior.  (Our” is meant to apply to everyone, not solely Christians.) Out of widespread ignorance of those “Dark Ages” comes a truth that we are yet to fathom today:  Heart is more important than brains, and knowledge in the form of information.

We symbolize love as a Gift of the Heart. So we have Valentine’s Day, overdone with hearts and red to symbolize blood rather than roses.  

Mothers feed their fetuses through blood, and placenta takes its nourishment from a mother’s blood to be passed the human fetus in her womb. Blood is the source of life, and blood is the essence of life which we must have. Blood carries oxygen to the brain, which shuts down when blood stops flowing through its passages. We carry thousands of miles of blood-lines within us, by common estimates as much as 60,000 miles. And if a child dies, a mother often feels as if part of her own circulatory system has shut down, her heart may harden, and part of her life is deadened.
Our Lady of the Seven Sorrows  


Those ignorant Christians accepted the importance of blood – Sacred Blood – tied to love and humanity coexisting in peace. Christ gave his blood to humanity, to save us from ourselves. “This is My Blood of the New Covenant,” the New Agreement. And, “My peace I give you.”

Geneticists disagree on whether or not there was a First Couple, as we have been told in the story of Adam and Eve. Some believe that, despite the fantasies of Dawkins, who proposed that we have common ancestors with gorillas and other hominidae, that there indeed was a First Woman who is our common ancestor. Science definitely supports this theory through genetic research and mathematics. Thus we know that Mitochondrial Eve did exist, and that we are all her descendants. We share her common bloodline. 

Science fans can check out the information here:  Our most recent common ancestor

The Sacred Heart of Mary, mother of Yeshua in Palestine 2,000 years ago, has represented this bloodline of humanity from the moment of her conception. Bloodlines have played a significant role in the ancestry of Mary traced back to King David of Israel about a thousand years earlier. The Gospel of Mathew opens with the genealogy strangely enough traced to Joseph, believed to be the stepfather of Yeshua rather than his biological father. Then, on the Cross, Jesus said to John, “Behold your mother …” in reference to humanity.

Everyone alive today is a descendant of someone alive when Jesus spoke to his disciples in informal conversations, lectures within synagogues, and to John from the Cross. We are family. We were given His Peace, and His Blood, for our sake, and this included all of humanity.

But where are we now?

It appears that we are more ignorant of the importance of our bloodlines than the people of the Dark and Middle Ages were of literacy and science. We live in an age in which people proudly say, “Nothing is sacred.”  

Valentine's Day Symbolism

The love that a deceased boy had for his sister is carried to another child within his transplanted heart, along with memories of little things that were precious to him. Life is sacred, and life is carried in our blood.

But we know that disease and death also are flowing through our bloodstreams as well. Whether in forms of hatred or biological nuisances, we carry the means of our own destruction within us. Values we hold play an essential role in the quality and quantity of life that we live, and for how long. Coincident with our common bloodline, whether we make peace or war becomes a factor of what we think and believe, what we hold and what we release.

Are We All Better Off Without Religion?



More often than ever I find FaceBook posts that attack people of faith. Quite often these statements or memes accuse people who believe in God of being responsible for most wars and murders.  To quote the most recent, “Gods don’t kill people. People with Gods kill people.”

In logic or debate, and even in political debate, attacks against a person are “out of bounds.” The Latin term ad hominem” means “to the person” and is considered a fallacy that invalidates an argument. Losers resort to ad hominem statements because their logic fails.  


Ironically, atheists assert that reason alone is valid and that Reason, in the form of Science,  refutes Faith. I have not yet met or encountered an atheist who adheres to reason to refute the existence of God or the validity of religion.


Plato used logic, or reason, to determine that there must be a Prime Mover that set this incomprehensible universe into motion. Atheists today evade this issue and claim that Science will eventually “discover” how such a Prime Mover is unnecessary. This is to say, they resort to “Blind Faith” in Science to argue against belief in any religion. Because Science has demonstrated some concepts to be false that were once held to be true, it is only a matter of time before Science proves all religious beliefs to be false. In logic this is the equivalent of arguing that because some insects fly it is only a matter of time that all insects will fly.

Many atheists go further by wielding accusations of Blind Faith to attack the intelligence of those who believe in God or attempt to practice a religion. Blind hypocrisy is the apt term.

What raises this matter to a social concern is this: all religions serve a social, civilizing purpose. They are schools of morality, thus schools of moderation of human behavior. Atheists make the absurd claim that religious moral schools “do more harm than good” for humanity. In fact, they assert that atheism is a better moral school than religion. By eliminating all religions, it is said, the “natural goodness” of humankind will shine through. Experience and knowledge of this world has taught me that the opposite is true. Observe the top and bottom “one percent” of humanity. One side hoards material wealth while creating a world in which 30,000 children starve to death every day. The other side includes persons who will kill for a piece of bread or a bowl of rice. In the middle are those who will kill “to see what it feels like to take a human life.”  Add in those who kill unborn human beings for profit because they can, and because they also disbelieve in the value of human life, or that we each have a unique soul.
 
This is considered funny by anti-Christian Pro-abortionists

We are all witnessing the rise of selfishness and narcissism simultaneously with antagonism against belief in a God concept and the practice of religion. This is not accidental, nor is it a coincidence. Atheism is another form of narcissism. But atheism is also a religion that displaces a Prime Mover with a soulless, inanimate and indifferent universe. Our place in this universe is then whatever we make it to be. Many follow the religion of Oprah Winfrey, who believes that we are all our own gods, each a god of the world we choose to create. All of us are on a short train ride, so to say. So, why not eat other people’s lunch, figuratively, or manipulate other riders, or be abusive if that makes us feel good for the moment? There are no moral rules other than those made up for ourselves? When you get down to it, this is what a moral code written by godless humans is going to look like. We have already codified into law a large portion of this new amoral code – and we are seeing the results everywhere in society.

Every day more land is purchased by corporations, squeezing living space for people into smaller and smaller areas. Police work primarily for these corporations to protect those abundant assets from increasingly desperate people. Scarcity is a deception. Food supplies are more dependent upon corporate distribution and profits every year, and less on self-sufficient home-grown production. The same is true of energy despite abundant possibilities for free energy. Fresh water is not really scarce on this planet, but its control by corporations increases every year, and they make record profits by selling to us what we ought to access freely. These are the fruits of the “moral code” derived from an incrementally more godless world.

The Results of Atheism Codified in Law

 And some people believe that we’re all going to be better off when religion is outlawed.

My Response to Dana Gentry and Ralston Report Denial

Recently I just received responses from the executive producer of the Ralston Reports, Dana Gentry, challenging the veracity of my earlier comments. Both Ms. Gentry and Jon Ralston deny those comments were made.


Hi Mr. Nagy:
Jon forwarded your message to me.  I am the executive producer of his program.

I don’t know what you are talking about but I challenge you to tell me the date this alleged report appeared on Ralston Reports. 

Here is a link to our recent programs:

When you find the “report” of which you speak does not exist  I hope you will take appropriate steps to correct your own reporting on your blog post. 

Thanks and look forward to hearing from you. 


Dana Gentry
Executive Producer
Ralston Reports

Below is my response.
Dear Ms. Gentry,
On Wednesday evening, April 16th my friend tuned into the Ralston Report and immediately noticed that the faces of  two people we met at the Americans For Prosperity (AFP) meeting at South Durango on April 15, 2014, between 5:00 PM and 7:00 PM were displayed in the lower right hand corner of our sixty-inch smart TV. Mr Ralston was speaking about comments made by Mr. Niger Innis and Ms. Michelle Fiore, guest speakers on a radio show broadcast live on CBS affiliate KXST - AM or KXNT - FM. Mr Ralston was correcting Ms. Fiore's points of view, to describe his views politely. His condescending tone was intended to mock Ms. Fiore's viewpoints. Following this diatribe, Ralston launched his comments about marijuana as a "dangerous drug," as I have responded to in my blog.
Apparently neither you nor Mr. Ralston are prepared to stand by his broadcast words. This confirms that the intent of the Ralston Report is to espouse propaganda to all viewers gullible enough to take his words at face value.
Best wishes,

Thomas A. Nagy

Cannabis Prohibition VS Unsolved Murders

Just about everyone knows what propaganda is when they hear it, although many people don’t realize they do. Why? Because propaganda is a fancy word for bullshit, and most of us realize when that spews forth from politicians and other government shills.

Last night I happened to be within earshot of a man named Jon Ralston spewing a load of propaganda about the dangers of cannabis, or weed, and driving. I don’t, as a rule, go out of my way to listen to “news” on television but a friend tuned in by chance to Las Vegas’ Channel 3 at just the right moment.

What did Jon Ralston say that was so outrageous? Well, to begin with his face and moving lips were alternating with images of a small white car with serious damage to the front end. Unfortunately that car was involved in a fatal accident in which a young man died. That is certainly sad, and all too common. However, Ralston was unconscionably exploiting that young man’s tragic death to make a false point: that because cannabinoids were found in his body, weed or marijuana was the cause of his death. According to Jon Ralston, cannabis is a “dangerous drug” that leads to or is involved in 45% of fatal accidents.

There are a lot of problems with Ralston’s statements. First of all, there are serious omissions of information regarding that case. Who was at fault in that fatal accident, and what was the cause? Was it solely the fault of a stoned driver, as Ralston implied? Was there any evidence of alcohol within those involved in that collision? If so, why is this not acknowledged? Were any other substances involved, licit or otherwise?

In my book Cannabis Consumer Handbook, I wrote a chapter to warn cannabis consumers specifically to avoid mixing cannabis with alcohol. The problem is not the cannabis. It is most definitely alcohol. People without experience with weed, especially young people, cannot judge the separate effects of alcohol while stoned. They tend to forget that alcohol sneaks up on people. The quiet euphoria of marijuana, for a time, disguises the building effects of alcohol in the body. Stoners, as a rule, don’t like to go out for a drive. Drunken people, however, delude themselves into believing that they have no impairments and are often quick to get into one of those killing machines on wheels. So, as I preach in the Handbook, as a rule, do not drink alcohol while enjoying the good herb, unless it’s a glass of wine and you won’t be driving.


Mayo

Which brings me to the point of Ralston’s propaganda and why he’s so deceptive: Over and over that shill for corporate governance referred to cannabis as “a dangerous drug.” Hence, he lied. Cannabis, or weed, or marijuana, is not a drug! It is a herb that is beneficial to the human body, just as other herbs like oregano and basil are. Calling cannabis a “dangerous drug” 25 times in a three-minute monologue does not alter nature; it does not make cannabis a drug. Also, each and every human being is born with cannabinoid receptors in our brains and bodies. If and when cannabis derivatives pass through our brain or certain places within our body where these ready receptors are, they are captured and put to good use. Among those positive uses is relief from terrible, chronic pain and destruction of cancer cells. Yes, the fact is that many cannabinoids kill cancer cells. This drugless, natural substance is fantastic medicine, and this is why “medical marijuana” usage is on the rise.



Ralston pretends to be doing a public service by warning people against legalization of cannabis, or even allowing its use as medicine. In fact, the only service he is doing is to corporations that want to continue profiting from legal drugs – pharmaceuticals – that kill hundreds of thousands of people each year. Ralston and his corporate sponsors are obviously doing a great disservice to the public, and he ought to shut up about cannabis being “a dangerous drug.”

Further, if Ralston and those spewing the same nonsense were sincere about serving the public interests through prudent use of the media they would be advocating, as I do, for an end to cannabis prohibition. And they would do as I’ve committed myself to do: put my money behind my words.

To explain briefly, a few facts: cannabis prohibition is very costly in dollars, but even more so in unnecessary health care costs for individuals and institutions. Public funds are spent needlessly to arrest, prosecute and incarcerate people for possessing cannabis. Conservative estimates indicate that these governmental expenses exceed $10 billion each year; that’s money down the drain. At the same time, a growing number of serious crimes go unprosecuted each year, the most serious of which is murder. Percentages of unsolved murders increase each year in most states, even if the number of criminal deaths does not. That $10 billion dollars wasted on cannabis prohibition and prosecution would go a long way to solving more of these capital crimes.

In Nevada, I’ve become superficially knowledgeable about an unsolved case; that of a young man murdered senselessly in 2005. Information about that tragic death can be found here: A Death in Las Vegas ~ Perverted Injustice Because of people like Jon Ralston, who rant against legalizing cannabis yet remain silent about better uses of public funds wasted on its prohibition, such as solving murder cases that sit in back rooms, I’ve decided to offer $4.20 from each Cannabis Consumer Handbook sold during the next four months to help that cause for justice. And I challenge everyone who fights cannabis legalization to do the same: put your own money into making a difference for the resolution of a serious crime, and help a grieving parent in the process.

Any reader can help prosecute a murderer by buying a copy of my book  Cannabis Consumer Handbook.
