Daily Kos :: Dear Richard Cohen’s ‘cultural cons ervatives’ (racists). Please vomit when you see me.

Dear Richard Cohen’s ‘cultural conservatives’ (racists). Please vomit when you see me.

This is what I look like. The result of an ancestry of a bicentennial of breeding farms and rape during the enslavement period on one side of the family, and a loving marriage between a white Kansan grandmother and a black grandfather from Tennessee on the other (whose marriage was illegal in many parts of the U.S. in 1915 when they wed).

Since we’ve been informed byWashington Postcolumnist Richard Cohen that the sight of “us” (and we number in the millions) makes racists he refuses to call racists gag—I suggest strongly that they complete the process.

Puke on.

I’ve read outraged responses to his column, from Ta-Nehisi Coates, toHunter here at Daily Kos, to Salon and more, but still haven’t been able to shake off my own anger at Cohen (and his WaPo bosses) whose inability to state that gaggers=teabaggers=racists, displays once again his Paleolithic punditry and history of racism, sexism and homophobia.

What was also bizarre was while using the de Blasio family as an example of what evokes choking (de Blasio who just won by a landslide in NYC), he singles out Harry Belafonte, as if every major civil rights organization hasn’t called out the Teapublican brand of hate, and as if Republicans across the board haven’t been supporting racist voter repression, anti-immigration reform, and programs like Stop and Frisk.

Hey Cohen—if it looks like a racist, talks like a racist, passes racist legislation, it ain’t conventional at all—it’s racist.

Recent surveys prove that a vastmajority of Americans approveof interracial marriage. Yet his “not-racists” (his holders of conventional views) to whom he attributes a gag reflex still exist, as an antediluvian minority, like the 46 percent of Republicanssurveyed in Mississippi who would like to ban it. They are not reflective of national opinion.

I look at myself each morning in the mirror. A black woman, clearly with ancestry not exclusively sub-Saharan African. Such is the nature of the “made in the U.S.A.” label for so many of us “black” folks, and others who reflect a mélange of cross-ethnic marriages and lineages.

From my point of view anyone who objects to me and mine as some sort of abomination, deserves an 100 percent made by the KKK tag, with hooded accessories.

Follow me below the fold for more.

Our mixed ancestral genesis, and demographics here on these shores, in the Caribbean, Latin America, and even in Europe, or in Africa itself (for example “Cape Coloureds” in South Africa) exhibits no inability on the part of “whites” to mingle sperm and ova with “blacks” or any other form of cross-ethnic fertilization and birth. We are homo sapiens sapiens, not different species. But it took until 1967 for the Supreme Court here in the U.S. to validate the right to marry across racial lines as the law of the land. The irony ofLoving v. Virginia, which ended legal discrimination is in the surname “Loving.”

I’m fed up with the denial about, and excuses made for Teapublican Christians who talk about Jesus’s love on a Sunday morning out of one side of their mouth and excoriate “race mixing” out of the other. The path to the pews should carpeted in the vile retching of hypocrites.

Chief Justice Earl Warren ruled: … (More)

Full Moon Phase: realization, illumination, shadow, fulfillment, experience

Moon: Gemini

Ruling Mahavidya: Kamala

Get ready for kundalini rising! Kundalini is raw energy that is coiled in the base of our bodies and, when activated, produces spiritual revelations, ecstatic experiences, penetrating insight, and access to untapped personal power. The serpent is closely associated with kundalini, as it remains looped like aq snake until called upon, and then meanders up through our chakra system. Today’s energy reinforces the snaking of kundalini currents that have been dormant. Kundalini can be acitvated through intense meditation, but it is best activated naturally, like today.

But with kundalini rising all over the place, things can get a bit noisy or overwhelming today. We tend to be more communicative when the Moon is in Gemini, and we also tend to be more active and energetic when we are in a Full Moon phase. People are generally more “jacked up” in general and a lot of activity takes place. We get bold and take risks. We see what needs to change. We want something new. Be smart and try to moderate any impulsive decisions until the rise is over. You will know when you return to equilibrium and can therefore make better decisions. The full extent of the rise occurs during this Full Moon phase, but Kamala will be on duty until the next lunar month which begins on December 2.

These powerful currents also blow out any unresolved emotions (especially grief and shame) and traumas locked into the chakras. When this happens, we can feel pain or illness in that area of the body. It’s important to be kind and gentle to yourself during states of kundalini rising. Turn down the outer world and go inside yourself to smooth the process. Keep yourself firmly rooted to the planet, Gaia-Sophia. It is helpful to envision yourself rooted with light through your feet, magnetically pulled into the earth, with the roots moving with you as you walk around in your day. I repeat it over and over again like a beacon, but connection with the earth is what keeps us sane, especially with intense energies like these.

There are things we can do to faciliate the process. Yoga, reiki, exercise, dance, and massage are a few. Earlier this year I mentioned that a friend gave me a RumbleRoller, a dense foam roller with nodes that enables us to work sore spots out of our bodies. It makes you feel like a new person. But my favorite thing is that it enables you to work on an exact spot and apply the amount of pressure that is comfortable for you – any time you desire. It’s empowering to be able to take care of yourself like this. To my delight, the geniuses at RumbleRoller have created a new treasure – the Beastie. The Beastie is a RumbleRoller in a little ball. You can take it anywhere! It’s the perfect device to ease any discomfort that comes from not just daily life, but also from kundalini rising. I rarely stumble across products that I want to talk about on the Oracle Report, but this one is too good to miss and quite affordable. There’s also a hook you can put the Beastie in, allowing you to get spots in your back without having to pull a muscle reaching for it. Heavenly!

And heavenly is the thing to remember today. This episode of kundalini rising is courtesy the Wisdom Goddess Kamala. She wants us to break out of limitations and have a richer, more expansive experience of life and love. What do you need to do to bring a piece of heaven down to your life and to our world? These answers come to us under the light of the Full Moon and the fire of kundalini.

If you missed it over the weekend, wise owl Szabi created the Oracle Report logo that is also a mandala. 77783809Coloring a mandala is an exercise that works out our spiritual muscles. Print it out and try it. But don’t be surpised if it blows out your chakras! Let’s send some love to Szabi for this beautiful gift to us.

Cabal in Surrender Negotiations- Ben Fulford November 19, 2013

I think it is important to keep in mind that all so called “insider information” is highly speculative.
I post these for entertainment mainly not because I believe everything Ben says.

I find things like asserting that my country which was founded on the idea of religious **freedom** is supposedly a religious government like the Taliban kinda creepy actually tho I suppose he is playing to a certain audience with that.
Anyway, just wanted to remind everyone to use discernment and not place any personal hopes on any of these “insider reports”.
No matter what the cabal or any big group is doing we always have the power to cocreate a better world individually and collectively.

Cabal is in surrender negotiations; told to hand over $700 trillion or $10,000 for each human

Posted by benjamin
November 19, 2013

Representatives of a committee of 15 individuals, who claim to be in charge of the system for creating and distributing US dollars and most other privately owned central bank currencies, are trying to arrange a peace agreement for the cabal. They agreed last week, in negotiations with a White Dragon Society representative, to initially make available $700 trillion, or $10,000 for each man, woman and child on the planet earth to be delivered in the form of goods and services. They also agreed to debt forgiveness for all nations including, they say, some debts that date back to the 1700’s. They also agreed to forgive most individual debts.

The committee claims to be headed by two Asian men, each over 90 years old, and representatives of five Asian families, seven European families and one Russian family.

There was also a meeting last week between representatives of Asian banking clans and the WDS. These clans claimed the rights to most of the world’s gold. They were also agreeable to the proposal to distribute $700 trillion to the people and nations of the world.

However, there are still some powerful factions still clinging to the Zionist nightmare of starting Armageddon, notably the Cohen crime family in New York and

an Italian P2 Lodge member by the name of Giuseppe Di Antonio, according to a high ranking P2 official. Di Antonio is the man behind recent threats to kill Pope Francis, he said. This group has a highly organized faction inside Mossad and also sits atop the New York and Los Angeles based media conglomerates, he noted. Their main financial instrument is Leumi Bank, he added. They also run various Pentecostal Christian cults, he said. A representative of the families mentioned above confirmed the existence of this group and said they would need help in dealing with them.

It is true that that New York is a highly gangster contaminated city and that is proven by the fact that mass murderers like the loathsome monster toad Henry Kissinger and Larry “pull it,” Silverstein are still strutting around like peacocks. It may be necessary to send in the militia from Minnesota to New York to start arresting these criminals and parading them in hand-cuffs in front of corporate media cameras so that all can see it is no longer business as usual for these scum. If the Minnesotans need help, doubtless Canadian armed forces can be made available upon invitation.

The Californians also need to round up members of the Cohen gang in Los Angeles and can be sure of Latino help in doing so.

If this does not take place, it will be proof for the people of the world that the once sovereign Christian Republic of the United States of America has become a slave state run by Satan worshipping Babylonian (not Jewish) gangsters.

The French, for their part, also helped the WDS last week by delivering paper documents revealing the exact coordinates of all the Google, NSA, Facebook etc. computing centers in the United States. The unspoken threat in the delivery of this information is that these data centers can be taken out with intercontinental ballistic missiles. Preparations have also been made by the Europeans to cut off all intercontinental communications cables on the Atlantic seabed, if necessary. This is a response to NSA hacking of European financial and other computer networks. It is also a clear indication of how isolated the rogue US regime is.

Speaking about rogue US regime, we have a new name to add to the list of known participants in the March 11, 2011 nuclear and tsunami mass murder attack on Japan: General Richard Meyers, according to an agency source. General Meyers was made Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Pentagon immediately after the 911 mass murder.

If the American people do not start rounding up criminals like General Meyers and putting them in jail, the international financial noose being put around that country will continue to get tighter. Judging from the various news reports, the so-called Obama care health insurance scheme, for example, appears to be just an effort by the corporate government in Washington D.C. to steal some insurance money in order to keep itself from going under for a few more weeks.

The pentagon faction that claims to be using Obama as their representative needs to move in on New York and start arresting the Wall Street criminals ASAP if they want to save themselves.

In any case, while the clean-up of the last pockets of cabal resistance continues, proposals are being put on the table on how to distribute the promised $700 trillion.

The WDS has proposed that the following existing organizations and groups would be qualified to distribute the $700 trillion in a non-corrupt, non-inflationary way:

The Chinese government including representatives from Taiwan, The Roman Catholic Church and the governments of South and Central America, The Japanese government and ASEAN, The Commonwealth of Nations (provided an Indian is put in charge), France and Francophone Africa, The Republic of the United States and the government of Canada, Northern Europe plus Russia and the Islamic world.

This is just an initial proposal based on the fact that these organizational structures already exist and have proven themselves to be relatively corruption free. Of course the Islamic nations will have to sort out their various historical disputes and select a single representative before funding will go in their direction.

This WDS proposal is only limited to the existing US dollar system and does not exclude new government issued currencies, grass roots currencies like Bitcoin or any plans by other independent groups. The proposal merely reflects the fact that these pre-existing groups could be able to carry out big projects almost immediately as soon as the money starts to flow.

We do not make any predictions on how soon this will start to happen but we can confirm that serious players have been meeting and that a general agreement exists now to start a massive campaign to “save the planet.”

The manuscript of survival – part 371

Thank you Aisha! I so needed to see this today. After being physically ill all week, yesterday I encountered unexpected racism (from a lightworker/teacher) that has knocked me for an emotional loop. Having a hard time resetting myself back to positive, upbeat and loving default state. Just keep feeling like crying. But this gives it a bit better context-the energy coming in knocked me for a loop and the disturbing thing tagged along. I haven’t been reactive for so long-it makes so much more sense now!:-)

aisha north

As many of you have noticed, the pace of disturbance has reached fever pitch in many, and rightly so, as from this day forward, there will be no holds barred. This may sound discouraging and even fearsome to some, but trust us when we say that you will not suffer unduly. And just what do we mean by that? Simply that you are not here to suffer, dear ones, you are here to conquer, and as such, the trials and travails you may encounter on your way are merely to help you to do just that. And when we say conquer, it is not in the old meaning of the word, for this is not about achieving an elevated status at the cost of others. No, this is simply about reconquering yourselves and your own inherent power, a power that has been taken away from you for such a long…

It’s Hard To Speak About These Things In Public. So He Drew This Instead.

Thank you for posting this. This is so important for people to realize. One of the most aware, compassionate, nonviolent people on Earth is Derrick Jensen who wrote of his experience of this in A Language Older Than Words-the book that explains WHY we have pedophiles, child abuse, woman battering, war, rape, racism, school shootings and mass addictions and depression. Hint-its all the same reason-the insane top down violence based power-over culture that results from colonization. Its a holographic system, so the pattern is evident at macro and micro levels. No one should be stigmatized for things that are not their fault!

“I made this for folks like me, many of whom are still living with shame, guilt, and fear (many of the responses I’ve received have mentioned similar suicide pacts). I’m aiming to get this out into the public consciousness, because while most facts people know actually come from hearing them in stories, updated information takes decades to filter back into new stories, as most writers cover the same ground with what they learned from others’ stories. Eskimos don’t have a crazy number of words for ‘snow,’ sharks don’t have to keep swimming to live, Mister Rogers wasn’t a fighter pilot, and victims of child sexual abuse don’t become offenders. We’d need a new word to out-class the present epidemic if they did because the incidence stats are horrifying.”

Thoughts On Race & Racism: “Black Men, Obsolete, Single, Dangerous?” And The Isis Papers.

Thank you for posting this. I can’t really agree with the second author re homosexuality but the rest of her theory is certainly an interesting counter to “Guns, Germs, and Steel” 🙂 I doubly appreciate seeing this post right now because I got an email newsletter yesterday from a person I respect who seems to me to have suddenly broken out with a case if shallow-clueless-racism disease. Living in a bed mostly housebound and being lighter skinned I had rather gratefully forgotten how much personally experienced racism can hurt:-/ I am used to the feeling of frustration and anger from seeing it at a distance-either reading online or hearing about my husband’s day out in the real world. I deeply want to stop the children I see now from having to live with this all their lives. So much energy wasted on dealing with pointless idiots!
