21st Century Rape Culture

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein

Is there an environmental “rape culture” in the United States? Yes, of course, there is. Most contemporary ecological problems, or “rape the land” mentality, is deeply rooted in Western patriarchal culture.

Rape (transitive verb) definition for this piece: 1a: (archaic) to seize and take away by force b:despoil 2: to commit rape on Continue reading “21st Century Rape Culture”

“Saving” Watersheds and Urbanites

The Prussian “Iron Chancellor” Otto Von Bismarck is often credited with the saying: “To retain respect for sausages and laws, one must not watch them in the making.”

Sen. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) recently introduced legislation to speed forest clearcutting and thinning projects in the Forest Service’s Northern Region.

The “Protect Collaboration for Healthier Forests Act” would adopt a regional approach to disputes over forest management projects that Daines has sought to implement nationally. According to Sen. Daines, “fringe litigators — radical environmental extremists — sue to stop commonsense collaborative forest management projects that would reduce the risk of wildfire.” Continue reading ““Saving” Watersheds and Urbanites”

Housekeeping notes

There are several matters to discuss concerning this blog before we move into uncharted waters.

Off to the right here are two new menus, the Honor Roll of Twins, and the Honor Roll of Zombies. We have done a lot of work here on  that subject, but it has never been indexed for easy access. Now every discovery we have made is but a link away. We invite scrutiny, and want mistakes pointed out. We accept challenges from honest citizens. (I have deleted many comments here, but not to be censorious. Spooks lurk all about on the Internet, paid agents who search the blogs looking for leaks of guarded information. They then attack those sources, but usually in a subtle way, trying to undermine confidence, create doubt, but never really saying anything of value. We have gotten good at spotting them, and get rid of them.

But if you, honest citizen, see something here you think far afield and wrong, do your own analysis, bring your information here in the comments. As I like to say, we only learn from mistakes (which is why the SAT exams are such a huge joke, smothering critical thinking skills in the crib), and if we make mistakes, we can always fix them. If we think you are wrong, but that your challenge is honest, you’ll find us polite and welcoming.

But we never thought that this blog would become what it is, an honor roll of exposure of spooks. Straight and I, months ago, were sitting on top of a list of dead musicians and actors gathered from McGowan’s Weird Scenes Inside the Canyon, and began work. I remember the early work, as Straight is a great organizer – he put together a database of all the relevant facts about each death, and I went through the Social Security Death Index looking for real deaths.* I remember various conversations, one of which where we agreed that we did not know where this information would take us, but that we should push forward. “Follow the truth no matter where it leads,” said Edward Abbey and many others. A lot of people say that, claim to follow truth. Few do. Fear of having a “conspiracy theory” stops them in their tracks, as I discovered with Joelle Steele.

Anyway, that is how we got here. That is why there are the two lists off to the right. We’ve been following truth, and are as surprised by where it has led us as any reader. Be warned, surprises ahead, bizarre in nature. But we are following truth, no matter where it leads. Answering the question “Why?” must necessarily follow “What?”


I want to pass on what Straight and I have learned thus far:

  • Any time there is a death of a celebrity, athlete or musician, be skeptical. If the person died at an older age, say age 53 (5+3=8) as with Jerry Garcia, John Denver, Jim Henson, Vladimir Lennon, Philip K. Dick, they probably retired with a gold watch, job well done. If they died young, say at age 27 (3 raised to the 3rd power, or another way to say 33), as with Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Pigpen McKernan or Jim Morrison, they probably faked their death and will reappear in another form. Same with age 33, as with Karen Carpenter, Sam Cooke and Ray Gillen, same deal. Reassignment.
  • Any time there is a major event that has the mainstream (and alternative) media stumbling over itself to cover it, be skeptical. Since so many of our Zombies ended up as newscasters of some form, I conclude that the entire news media is a fake enterprise.
  • There is not nearly as much death and mayhem going on as we are led to believe by media. There is no “occult” to be taken seriously. There are no “suicide bombers,” and the mass shootings are all fake. Police shootings are currently being used to stir up black-on-white distrust, like Charlotte. It was faked. The Boston bombing was fake, as were the Paris and Brussels “terrorist attacks.” (Such events require a fake media to be believed.) This has led me to believe that we are not dealing with cold-blooded killers, just hoaxers who are managing public opinion to nudge us down the road they want us on. I don’t know if they are psychopaths who simply avoid killing due to annoying blowback effects, but I do know they are restrained in actual deaths. So far. (This includes 9/11.)

In other words, relax, people! Walk alone in your neighborhood at night, leave your house unlocked, trust other people to do the right thing. (I left my IPad at Costco yesterday. I called them – someone turned it in. I expected no less.) Bad things happen, and those bad things are usually the result of careless accidents, alcohol, drugs, love affairs, people in desperation … but there is no one outside the military and the medical cartel plotting real mass death events. If our search for truth has taught us anything, it is that people are good.

Also, just for fun, keep your eye out in the news for spook signalling. 33 Chilean miners trapped – a fake event. 33 people hospitalized in New York after smoking synthetic marijuana – fake. The Ku Klux Klan – an Intelligence front. (“K” is the 11th letter of the alphabet, x 3 = 33. Just learned this last week.) Zika virus discovered in 1947 … a hoax. Pete Ham died at age 27 .. nah, he didn’t. He faked his death.

Isn’t the search for truth fun? Isn’t life great? Isn’t it nice to live on a planet where most people are good?


All that said, I have exciting news, beneath the fold:
