George W Bush made quite a splash with the democrats and the media over statements made at a 9-11 ceremony last Saturday. The specific statement was:

“There is little cultural overlap between violent extremists abroad and violent extremists at home,” Bush said during a speech at the Flight 93 Memorial in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. “But in their disdain for pluralism, in their disregard for human life, in their determination to defile national symbols, they are children of the same foul spirit.”

Note that I pulled this quote from and article in USA Today, but the article was all but identical to the same articles throughout the mainstream. It was lauded as another case of a Republican blaming Trump for the insurrection on January 6.

Now, I am no one who will ever look to defend a Bush. And from everything we may have read, Dubya and the gang are still fuming over Trump’s treatment of poor Jeb back in 2016. And let’s face it, every time you hear Geo W make a statement in public, the lamestream is sure to edit it to their most extreme anti-Trump advantage.

Who George W Bush is, who he is being controlled by, and what part they have him playing is a very long book that I do not have the chops to write – yet.

But I would suggest that this odd statement may contain some elements not being discussed by the media. It is obvious they are reporting the part of it that fits their agenda, ie that the people attacking the capitol on January 6th were “Domestic Terrorists.”

But please reread what he said. I defy you to not also be able to apply it to every rioter and looter that ran through the streets of our country for the George Floyd riots.

This makes you ask the question. Is George W Bush simply a swamp creature ready to campaign for the Cabal? Or is he a Pawn and tool of the Cabal who has found a way to expose just a little bit more? Think about it.

Song of the Day

Rush was definitely going to find its way into this playlist. The lyrics of Limelight were speaking to me pretty loudly today

EARTH: 28 SAGITTARIUS – An old bridge over a beautiful stream in constant use

Methinks the Sabian Symbols for today may not fully appreciate the energies at hand right now. Sun/Earth are conjunct the nodes – at the Galactic Center – Square to Mars. With Mercury Retrograde. Maybe more of a bridge over troubled water than a beautiful stream, but safety of the bridge seems clear.

I woke today with more of the less than gentle times on my mind.

  • Plandemic
  • Riots
  • Tearing down statues
  • Farenheit 451 / 1984 happening before our eyes – Books Burning – history being rewritten
  • John Bolton’s Book, despite being sued to stop publication, gleefully being extolled by the lamestream media – since they are reading from their advanced secret copies.
    • Let’s not forget that this is the same lamestream who were calling for impeachment when Trump even suggested having Neocon Bolton in a position of Power.

A song lyric entered my head that I could not shake:

Quick to judge
Quick to anger
Slow to understand
Ignorance and prejudice
And fear walk hand in hand

From the Song Witch Hunt from Rush – off their Moving Pictures Album. I loved that album and played the vinyl edition more times that can be counted back in the early 80’s.

Rush was one of those subversive bands that hid messages in their lyrics. I remember people always wanted to imagine satanic images in all rock and roll. The subversion in Rush was much deeper – political messages that were not related to underprivileged working class people or the environment.

Witch Hunt was all about Mob mentality – what happens when The Shit Hits the Fan and mobs take over. Are they chasing the Salem Witches? are they chasing rogue Police? Hmmm? Who exactly is being lynched?

I think we are in need of some of that Galactic Center Energy!

Happy Monday! All the windows of my heart I open to the day. – John Greenleaf Whittier

I grew up in the City of Whittier in California. I describe it as a small town in the middle of Los Angeles. It sits on the far eastern end of Los Angeles County – bordering Orange County (You know, the OC).

I call it a small town because it always remained pretty much untouched by LA. We were insulated – nestled up against the hills. The Freeways went around Whittier rather than through it. So we were insulated. To the South and West, we had the Oil fields and the warehouses of Santa fe Springs. To the North, the hills. To The west was Orange County, but that was the northern end of that, and how many people have really ever heard of Brea, La Mirada or La Habra? No offense to anyone living there, but lest face it, we were all insulated together.

This morning I found this article on Facebook, shared in the People of Whittier page I connected with. It says a lot about the things going on around us in this Riot-woke time post Pandemic.

By now many people likely have seen that overnight in Central Park, the statue of John Greenleaf Whittier (sculpted by artist Christoph Rittershausen for the town’s centennial and paid for by residents; see https://www.latimes.com/…/la-xpm-1987-02-12-hl-2792-story.h…) was vandalized. I won’t share the photos here, but I will say this: I’m no criminologist, but the choice of colors (pink, neon green, blue), plus some other evidence (“boobies” painted out JGW’s chest, his fingernails “painted,” etc.) seem to me to indicate this is the “work” of (young) provocateurs, not civil rights protesters.

Another bit of evidence which seems to me to point to the inexpert work of mischief-makers rather than another group was the graffiti: “[expletive] slave owners.” Now it could be that the folks who undertook this vandalism (deftly removed by dedicated City employees and volunteers this morning) don’t know the score, or maybe they do and, again, were just trying to stir the pot. But lest they don’t know—and in case *you* don’t know—here’s a brief lesson:

This town was named after John Greenleaf Whittier (1807-1892). You might recognize that middle name as an important avenue in the Uptown area. The reasons the founders of the town picked “Whittier” was because they were Quakers, and Whittier was arguably the most famous poet in America at the time. Like our town’s founders, he also happened to be a Quaker—the Christian sect associated with pacifism in the twentieth cenntury, but most closely associated in the nineteenth century with the abolition of slavery. Whittier has a huge body of writing, but a significant portion of it is pamphlets, essays, speeches, and poems dedicated to the abolition of slavery, and to showing how and why slavery’s defenders’ arguments about white supremacy and Black inferiority were complete bunk.

One of his most famous poems, “Our Countrymen in Chains,” was published in the 1830s, and immediately slapped on a broaside with a more famous image: that of an African American slave in bondage, asking the rhetorical question that obviously we are still grappling with today as we think about our civic commitments to justice and equality: Am I Not a Man and a Brother?

For a closer look at the broadside (i.e., one in which you can actually read the text of Whitier’s poem), check out this digital version at the Library of Congress: https://www.loc.gov/item/2008661312/. And if you want to know more about JGW’s abolitionist activities, see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Greenleaf_Whittier….

(Don’t worry, folks—I’ve been an academic librarian for 15+ years, and I promise it’s okay to use Wikipeida as a tertiary source, especially if you’re looking to the footnotes to lead you to more authoritative ones.)

It got my attention this morning as I was listening to the morning News on CBS. The lead story was about the Statue of Christopher Columbus in Marconi Park in Philadelphia. The story was about how there is a barrier constructed around it. Police have been guarding all night. There was a crown of people milling about all night. There was a group of people, some with Assault Rifles.

Some of the people were there as part of a group to destroy the statue. Some were there to protect it. How many of whom was unclear. But its obvious that there is a strange level of pent up anger looking for an innocent victim to throw it against.

From my perspective, I have a serious problem with mob rule. Especially when it comes to mobs destroying thing. Destruction has been a big thing with this latest event. And as the Whittier story points out, little of it has to do with the George Floyd murder.

It is misplaced anger. More of The Purge that has yet to be quenched. Do we allow these petulant 5 year olds to continue flushing that toilet over and over again until it floods? Or do we take them aside and slap them on the butt and tell them to stop?

My Happy Monday message was inspired by the John Greenleaf Whittier story. We need to open those windows and add some more of our hearts to this time.

I leave it today with a piece musical of wisdom along the same lines.
