Coming Home to Roost: American Militarism, War Culture and Police Brutality

Colin Jenkins, The Hampton Institute: Rather than seeing themselves as public servants, police officers have increasingly embraced the “us vs. them” mentality – anyone who isn’t a cop is a potential threat. That attitude makes police “mindless drones” void of conscience in a world that is becoming increasingly unconscionable – the ultimate tool of an ever-intensifying class war.

America’s $1 Trillion National Security Budget

Winslow T. Wheeler, Project On Government Oversight: Pentagon costs, taken together with other known national security expenses for 2015, will exceed $1 trillion. The problem is not scarcity of money; the problem is how it is being spent. We are getting very little defense – training, maintenance, hardware, and troops – for a gigantic amount of money.

The Oracle Report | Saturday, March 15 – Sunday, March 16, 2014

03-15-2014 Filaments on the Sun; from spaceweather


Saturday: Gibbous Moon Phase – trust, prepare, analyze, digest, magic

Sunday: Full Moon Phase (1:08 pm ET/5:08 pm UT): illumination, realization, relationships

Every year as the Sun moves to the last degrees of Pisces, we have a five day block of time that provides the most etheric, alchemic, esoteric, and angelic energy of the entire year. This time begins Saturday.

This may feel rather conflicted with what is going on around you and what is going on in the world. Perhaps you are not feeling particularly etheric or esoteric. But this is the energy nonetheless. It holds raw potential for successful manifestation/production in the physical world at a later time. It is like someone gives us a fresh hunk of clay, we make a representation of something, and depending on how much emotional or physical energy is put into it, it manifests and animates in the real world later.

To do this most effectively, mindset is the key. You have to believe.

To do this when there are so many things that do not look like a beautiful, fresh hunk of clay but look more like destruction, may seem like a feat. But it is much less so when you step back and step above the situation. This is the skill of moving out of the role of victim to see truth.

The drama and dualities of situations presented in the collective are a ruse. They are a distraction designed behind the scenes to carry out the agenda of dimensional forces not in alignment with nature, the freedom of the human mind, and the continuation of the human spirit. This is the level we go to when what we see in front of us is war theatre. A hand is extended dangling a shiny object, saying, “Watch this…”

In the meantime, the other hand is behind our backs stealing us blind. They are stealing our money and they are stealing our freedom to live in peace. Monetary issues and monetary changes and further enslavement of freedom are what are being orchestrated while everyone is focusing on the possible start to world war three. That may be true, but it is not the full story. Both sides are controlled by oligarchs who are controlled by archons.

But, then, the story is ultimately not humanity vs. the archons. There are other players here. First and foremost we have Sophia herself, the divine being embodied as our planet and we have Sabaoth, the Sun, the sustainer of life in our planetary system.

The message Sophia has for us is not to fear and not to forget her.

Let’s not count ourselves out and certainly let’s not count out assistance from wiser forces than ourselves. The spirit of liberty is immortal.

This weekend, take things that develop to a higher level. Go higher up in the tree to see to gain a wider perspective. If you can climb something this weekend, do it!

The Moon will oppose Chiron Saturday, so if the Chiron themes of self-sabotage, self-destruction, feelings of failure, and the desire to wound come up for you, do something physical to release the feeling and then go outside for nature to heal you.

Remember that we are on a path seeking illumination this month. The Full Moon phase, the time of the most light, enters Sunday. Watch for things to light up.
