Marjorie Cohn, Truthout: The Pentagon is planning to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Vietnam War by launching a $30 million program to rewrite and sanitize its history.

Personalizing Our Resistance to Domestic Violence

Monica Trinidad, Truthout: While telling our personal stories of struggle may sometimes feel self-serving, or even trivial, stories of personal trauma are the key to humanizing statistics of domestic and state violence, the puzzle pieces that together construct the larger narrative of the white supremacist, capitalist patriarchy we oppose.

The United States Is Founded Upon the Model of European Conquest: Dispose of the Disposable People

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Beacon Press: The United States may have declared its independence from Britain, but it continued the European tradition of annihilating native inhabitants as the new nation pursued its “manifest destiny.” To expand, the original 13 colonies had to decimate the Native American nations and seize their lands.

The Real Rick Scott Debate Scandal

The Daily Take Team, The Thom Hartmann Program: Rather than provide us with real news, our corporatized media gives us ratings-driven infotainment drivel, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. A case in point comes from last night’s Florida gubernatorial debate between Republican Gov. Rick Scott and challenger former Gov. Charlie Crist.

A Blueprint for Bankruptcy

Randy Salzman, Thinking Highways: The “privates” in the much-touted “public-private partnerships” make billions by seeming to lose millions in US transportation projects.

Privatized Ebola

Margaret Kimberley, Black Agenda Report: The largest contributor to the World Health Organization budget is not a government. It is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which provides more funding than either the United States or the United Kingdom. The organization’s priorities are the result of top-down decision-making from wealthy philanthropists.

The Oracle Report | Friday, October 17, 2014

Third Quarter Moon Phase: take personal responsibility

Moon in Leo

Skill: adjust and adapt

Negative Imprint: overstating one’s role, denial, jealousy, fickle, two-faced, impotent, unanchored, overvaluing the material

Positive Imprint: opportunities, simplicity, rewards, inner transformation, spirit communication, exuberance, honoring the spiritual

Today is a day for adjustment. There is a definitive shift in the energy with the conjunction of Venus, Mercury, and the Sun, which bring enlightenment and clarity.

Enlightenment and clarity have been on tap all month long, but today a triple amount of light is headed our way. Much of the light/information centers today around relationships, with the addition of Venus to the mix. We see things to which we need to adjust. The good part is that Mars is in benefic aspect, disseminating the energy of “a bluebird standing at the door of happiness.”

So whatever is revealed to us is happening to take us to a happier place, even if it doesn’t look like it today. Adjustments need to be made to get us in proper alignment. News that comes to us may be quite unsettling, but the point of this is to respond to it – not stick our heads in the sand and hope for the best. We must take personal responsibility and make necessary preparations.

Along with adjustments today, the need to make a choice may also be presented. Look back to promises that you have made in the past. Does one come to mind? Is there something unresolved about that? Is a similar thing happening now? You can do it a different way. You may not know with certainty how you feel about something or someone, but you need to very certain about where you stand. It wise to look at everything, even when your feelings are changeable. Set your bar. What is acceptable to you and what is unacceptable to you? Choose wisely based on the truth of people’s actions – not their words. Words don’t go the distance today. The power of action does.

The conventional ways of solving or understanding things no longer apply. We cannot make choices today based on societal values of the past. The world is new. Ingenuity begins to rule, taking over from apathy and incompetence (finally). Synchronicities guide us. The planet speaks to us. This is a new way of life.

Who else but wise owls would consider life, poised as it is on the brink of breakdown, to be beautiful? Our mindset is not grounded in the matrix; it is grounded with Gaia Sophia. We turn to her when fear (and madness) creep in to mangle and erode our love for her and for her dream for us. Did you know how much you are loved?

The old way (or negative imprint) today is spending energy on things which do not have true, lasting value or are not even relevant any longer. Old methods that come from the core mindset of fear and competition will feel ineffective and cold, mainly because they are self-focused. What is operational now is what is good for everyone – the whole.

The Moon will make the conjunction (be in the same place in the sky) with Jupiter at 7:14 pm ET/11:14 pm UT today. Jupiter expands everything it touches, and the Moon brings up the depths of emotions. The conjunction will happen at the degree of “a houseboat party,” so joining with others is a good idea if possible tonight. Take things out of the normal routine. Do it differently. The negative polarity of this energy would bring overwhelming feelings of being lost, untethered, or unmoored. There’s a quick fix for that: go outside. Your will naturally begin to feel grounded once again.

The stress of Mercury will tend to have people saying what they need to say but not always in the best way. Wise owls know it is not what you say, but how you say it. Don’t leave important communications to the uncertainty of electronic communications. Complex emotions about complex situations do not come across well in email or text message. Given the extreme focus on relationships today, take heartfelt communications seriously. Be gentle about love because good love is hard to find (quoting the great Tom Petty once again).

People joining together, people becoming attracted, and people getting interested is what happens today. New, unconventional sides to this month’s mystery are emerging. It may seem foreign or strange now, but with a little adjustment, we may see that it is just what we needed.

I will be back tomorrow with the weekend report and an audio recording for what’s ahead is in the works, too, so be sure to check back.

Stay vigilant, stay responsive, and maintain your consciousness with Gaia Sophia. Go outdoors as often as possible. Like the seasons, we also adjust.

Thank you for supporting the Oracle Report. Blessings to all!

Politifact, Ebola virus and fear porn

Politifact of the Tampa Bay Times debunked an article I posted earlier about the recent Ebola outbreak in Africa and it’s purported relationship to a bioweapons lab, and other standard NWO/ conspiracy related groups and organizations. I share what I see or friends send me that seems pertinent and useful- I don’t claim to know The Truth; I just want to participate in helping us all sort out what it is.

I received this and while it is fairly simple, obvious info, it may be useful to share to make sure everyone you know is aware of the facts on this disease. Common sense infection control measures plus attention to supporting your body and immune system with things like healthy diet, enough rest, herbs, homeopathic remedies, reiki, acupressure, ayurveda, TCM, and regular exercise especially practices like yoga, tai chi and chi kung that help keep the body in balance are likely enough for everyone who is not a healthcare professional.

I hope that some experienced people come together to create a group of practical things healthcare professionals can do to prevent infection beyond the standard recommendations.

Until then and in addition prayer for everyone is a good addition. The more of us hold the intention that this disease NOT become a devastating pandemic, the higher the chance that it won’t do so. That may sound crazy to many of you but it doesn’t hurt to pray and hold positive intentions. It’s easy and free so why not?

Blessings to all of you-stay safe and stay positive and loving. Don’t let the media barrage of fear pornography on this or anything unground you or pull you off center. We only die once per lifetime. So why spend so much of it in fear of that single moment?

Ebola: What you need to know

At a time when Ebola is all over the news and it’s easy for misinformation to get interpreted as truth, make sure you have the clear-cut facts.

Here’s what our public health officials are saying about the Ebola virus — get informed, and share this information where everyone can see it.

1. You CAN’T get Ebola through:

  • Casual contact with someone who has no symptoms of the disease
  • Air
  • Water
  • Food in the U.S.

Get the facts on Ebola here.

2. The only way a person can get Ebola is through direct contact with the bodily fluids of someone who is already showing symptoms of the disease.

Get the facts on Ebola here.

3. If a person does not have symptoms, they are not contagious.

Get the facts on Ebola here.

As President Obama, leadership at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other senior officials have reiterated, the chances of a widespread Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.

Still, you don’t want to be misinformed about Ebola. Find out more about how we’re responding to the disease, and the domestic and international efforts to contain and end the epidemic.

You can visit the CDC for more information on our response to Ebola and call 1-800-CDC-INFO (1-800-232-4636) for additional inquiries.
