If you had a true peace that could never be disturbed what then could ever really bother you? Yet how can one be at peace if they are afraid and ruled by fear?
The most depressing people I ever knew in all my life -- the demonists.
Although it is true sorrow is the flip side of laughter, one can still enjoy the benefits of laughter once there isn't any sorrow. And goodly laughter is part of joy. And when that same joy is finally rid of unnatural sorrow it becomes joy ineffable, and laughter a trinket.
They say I suffer all these things that I might one day qualify for, benefit from and be honored by their heaven. But I tell you all these things I am and have been put through combined are not anywhere near so horrible, filthy and insufferable as their heaven which is not of truth.
Of how many places around the globe could it be said -- "Yes, it would be a beautiful place to live were there but peace and justice in it." (But no honesty, no truth then no peace, no justice.)
Although this YouTube mini-documentary on the Romanian Revolution of 1989 is a bit coldly clinical and some of the conclusions it makes perhaps questionable or at least requiring further disinterested exploration and developing, it nonetheless is very educational, and the portrait of Ceausescu it paints an interesting one -- that is, he apparently in all sincerity thought he was helping people. Is it possible that such a one could be, unbeknownst to himself, among the most dangerous of men?
Harry Potter and the Magical Pot of Gold
Here's another one of those lunatic ads that routinely come up on such as Yahoo and ebay. Now I ask you -- how and in what way is the symbolism invoked here supposed to make sense? To me, I can't help but find what it expresses as reminiscent of the Nazi ideas of prosperity through subjugation and wealth through crime -- rather than those of Adam Smith, and free trade and fair and humane competition as the basis of material riches. What do you think?
Later Note. Some would predictably remark: mock all you like -- but this is the way that works. Yes, in a manner of speaking, it works all right, but only because these dishonest and fascist types have spirit people leading and assisting them in their criminal enterprises, counterfeiting, obstructions of justice, and takeovers. Let, however, the peoples and forces of the truly free world collect and martial its intellectual and military might to expel and remove such spirit people -- what strength will the fear mongers and freebooters have left to them then?
The following is a re-editing and re-configuring of a poem I wrote sometime in the 1980's.
This Day (revised)
This day feel a limit;
As a soaring bird must feel
When it must come down
To the gravity of earth.
Though each muscle tendon burst
To pass the aerosphere,
In part because I breathe,
I'm confined to this world here.
And each day striking the calendar,
It seems I wait in vain
For blessedness to come
To bring me stronger wings
That would pierce
The furthest bounds
Of Freedom's firmament.
What then are these recurring pains
Which make life seem a burden;
And cut deep like a falling axe?
What gnaws late evenings
And the dead of night?
Such that life is wasted
Over woe's temporarily tasted?
Thus asked in my worries and fears,
Born of idle, duped imaginings
Nestled in loss and boredom's care.
Surely death cannot be more than
A myth of fear and unknowing,
-- Perhaps it offers respite.
Yet though death offers escape,
How can I concede the cause
That love will make all well,
And in so doing hate life
And resign myself to hell?
Bludgeoned and starved
To the spirit and sense,
Beaten and robbed
By time and by life,
On troubled bed did I lay asking
"Where is God this lonely day?
"Wherefore proceed?" cried I.
"Why get up from this ditch
Once more to go
And risk all again?"
So it was I groaned
With dolor's weight,
Ready to detach from the tree
Like a forgotten leaf whose late.
I then descended in sleep,
And in a dream
A strange shade beckoned to me,
And she whispered
With chiding voice:
"Do not languish
In self-filled pity.
Come with me
And see souls of the city."
My mind followed her
And a vision opened
To my inward eyes
Of deformed and crippled
Struggling to make good
And prisoners in chains
Who had never a chance
For hope from their pains.
I saw one retarded, jeered at
Even as he wept.
An image wafted by
Of a limp woman raped,
While into the night
Her attacker escaped.
I learned of hearts
Who said good-bye
Without ever knowing
A true friend or kiss,
Or even imagined
A thing like bliss.
Dampened faced of children,
Bowed and lachrymose
Who could never
Look up with kindness or trust.
There was a whore
Blank eyed and broken;
A drunk wallowing in a gutter,
From the side of his head,
Less alive than dead.
So wretched and merciless
Was this I dreamed,
That my mind trembled
And in my sleep I screamed.
Then the heavy veils draped closed
And mists of mind obscured all,
The shade appeared once more and said:
"For every decent, yet troubled soul
That wills their end on life's field
Goodness' ranks are depleted
One less sword and shield,
And Evils are made the stronger.
Think well then you who weep
What your purpose could be
And why it is you belong!
Though you fail in the fight
Find comfort in doing what's right;
For in that will you find
Love's True meaning."
The shade turned upward
And arose into the air;
Became a golden angel
With pinions bright and fair.
Amazed by her effulgence,
I awoke dazed from slumber
Bubbling like a warm spring
Flowing out onto the surface
Of cooling consciousness.
I strained like a new born child
Dazzled by her beams of light;
Awaking my spirit
From the shadows
Of that somnolent hypogeum.
A breeze from an open window
Lifted locks of my hair,
And I breathed in deeply
The vigor of the flowing air,
Still hurting from regrets
But resolved to live more wisely;
To give so as to prove
My love forsaken
Was of actual worth after all.
Opportunities are never really gone
Until freely given up,
And if after all troubles I can move,
I will still laugh, cry and love.
I will not singly moan the loss
Of what is a mere illusion,
Of all that is called real.
For once the lies
Are shorn asunder
And Time's fleeting guise removed,
All of us that does survive
Is all that is living and beautiful.
As part of and in continuation of our prosecution of organized crime in the City of Seattle and the State of Washington, the following is a missive I have been writing in preparation for a new offensive. It is originally been intended as a printed letter so you will read and understand it in that context. Please, if you care to, feel free to disseminate it to those to whom it may be of obvious concern.
BRIEF SUMMARY AND ABSTRACT OF MOST OF WHAT FOLLOWS:
I am looking for honest, rational, and responsible persons to impartially examine, look into, assess and adjudicate some felony criminal related matters in which I am and have been a victim. Moreover, it is my contention that the reasons and grounds for my inability to receive any assistance in this up to this time – that is for 16 years -- is and can be construed itself a serious crime, or at least shows a high degree of negligence and incompetence on the part of the government, police and legal community. This letter then is intended as an introduction and brief summary and not a full and proper exposition of my story and plight. A detailed account of my claims and experiences are to be found on my "Narrative," written a number of years ago, and which is contained on the CD that accompanies this letter (these same materials and more can be found at my website www.gunjones.com). If I could I would provide ready printed versions to you; however, I did something like that one time at a cost of something like $250.00 (I’m living on Social Security disability by the way) and did not receive back a single response (more on this particular incident in what follows below.) Consequently, I hope you will pardon me for not providing at this stage ready paper printed versions of the pertinent material.
Although I would not expect or insist that anyone necessarily have any sympathy for me personally, my case, assuming what I claim is true, has grave implications with respect to the welfare of others and indeed, in the estimation of some, could be reasonably deemed a public safety matter of the highest priority.
While I grant my story and claims are highly strange and unusual, this of itself, I would most doggedly insist, does not prove they cannot be true or have a discernable and verifiable basis in truth. And even if some of what I claim cannot, for one reason or other, be established, it does not follow that all that I allege of a serious nature cannot be proven. I mention this because some seem to take the view that if I cannot prove all of what I claim then it must be that I can prove none of it. This, naturally, I maintain, is a grossly false sort of logic, as well as being no less extremely unconscionably unfair to a petitioner claiming to have been a victim of violent crime and vicious abuse for a period spanning years.
Some seem to take the attitude that felony crime can be purchased – that is, if the price is right and the criminals take extra special care, say by means of blackmail, bribery, disinformation, and or other forms of strong arming and duress, to obstruct and prevent an investigation or prosecution that this legally constitutes de facto acquittal, and that consequently they are not answerable for their malfeasance, no matter how heinous and incomprehensible the offenses. Such a malicious and cynical attitude and conclusion, I hope, you will agree is in complete violation of the spirit of the Law, and should not on any grounds be tolerated or condoned, and that to tolerate or condone such only serves to attack the law at its very root and foundation.
Who are these people dogging and harassing me? The answer to this, I regret to say is not easy. Yet neither is it utterly baffling, let alone insoluble would but some time and investigation put into who and what I am talking about. Yet so powerful are these criminals that I am vying against that they can and have been successful in preventing inquiries and investigations into my claims. It is my contention then that by step-by-step logic using the scientific method it is applied it is possible to establish most of not all of pertinent claims of fact which I allege, including who specifically are the offenders. Indeed, the honest facts support what I say to such an extent that the substance of my claims can be proven irrefutably, at least to any honest, disinterested, and objective person who makes a reasonable effort to do so.
A wish one often and routinely finds expressed in Voter's Pamphlets and voiced by candidates for court judgeships is the desire that equal access to justice and the legal system be available to all, and in a manner unhindered by unfair prejudice and arbitrary discrimination.
Well, I am a case in point of someone very much in need -- and I would argue deserving as well -- of legal assistance. In fact, so true and so much is this so that to the degree I have failed to secure any for many years now does itself, it could be very reasonably be argued, constitute a crime and the willful and reckless obstruction of justice -– a claim any half decent and fair person, who would they but makes themselves intelligently familiar with my case, would, I am positive, readily agree with.
Ordinarily, at least if we are an adult, we don’t expert others to necessarily care about our own troubles and woes; unless perhaps they are family, a special friend, and or else unless we are willing and able, in some way, to purchase or hire their assistance. This sort of attitude and expectation when it comes to life’s travails is perfectly normal. However, when even an isolated individual’s plight is such as to qualify as horrifying and outrageous, and has gone on for an extended duration no less, then even the least decent citizen of just a little intelligence must be forced to consider that such a state of things may have serious implications for the community at large; not least of which when the said individual’s plight is being caused by criminals who are both very violent, malicious, and highly organized and sophisticated.
Such I would plea is my own circumstance. In these past 16 years or so I have come very painfully to learn that a person can be put through the most extreme kinds of violence and abuse, and if they are alone and materially poor enough no one will listen to, let alone succor, them – all the less so if those they are up against are rich, powerful, criminals adroit at deceiving and sabotaging relationships and communications. Even if then you feel no need for sympathy for me personally, I very humbly and earnestly entreat you to at least consider what the predicament and victimization that I allege does or may mean for others and the community at large, including perhaps even loved ones of your own.
If "equal legal access to all" then is an important value we cherish, this of itself would warrant my receiving ample and speedy aid given that my nightmarish and truly agonizing and unspeakable ordeal, and that goes back at least 16 years and continues even to the present. Yet not only have I been refused assistance but have been denied help, characteristically under the flimsiest and childish kinds of excuses and pretexts, even when the reality and threat of violence were still present and imminent.
Where the positions are held in dire earnest, there are two sides to every question, and yet I who almost two decades have been crying bloody murder have difficulty even getting people to give me the time of day (to use a figure of speech.) Very sadly, for many there seems to be an unwritten law if one is alone no one need listen to them. Regardless of what the laws and legal system formally state or think, this is how it is for some people, and I have been put in a situation where because I have been intentionally and systematically made to be alone that this then opens the gate for the same people to physically (and in other ways) attack, assail and abuse me, sometimes in ways that are so cruel as to be imaginable to most people.
Yet even granting all that I assert above, explaining the wherefore of my past and present state of things is admittedly not without its challenges and difficulties. Some of what I allege some will and perhaps understandably reject out of hand as being preposterous. Yet even if, for the sake of argument (and to be brief), not all of my allegations are allowed, there still remains, I would argue, more than enough evidence to prove and establish that at least some serious crimes have taken place and that this itself and at the very least demands and requires the law’s looking into the matters and charges I raise.
Taken as a whole, my circumstances and predicament could be considered rather involved and complex, and, admittedly, it might not be possible to address, get at get at and prosecute every matter with possibly serious legal implications. For one thing, there are and have been so many crimes committed and going on for so very long, it may not even be even possible to just list and record them, at least without a substantial expenditure of time and energy. However, if individual events are examined and weighed in isolation, the task of prosecuting the crimes I allege is far less demanding and problematical.
Now there are two subjects I raise in the course of my narrative that some will think utterly fantastical, namely the question of a) spirit people (as in ghosts and the so-called paranormal), and b) brain torture radios (à la purported torture technology such as in an earlier time was famous for being used in former East Bloc countries.) Without here getting into the merit of these as concerns (I will and do so at other locations in the presentation of my case), let me at least put the irksome matter this way. Even if, as some will unthinkingly assume, I am crazy or delusional, does that mean that nothing that I say can be true? If the one, does it then necessarily follow that I could not possibly be a victim of malicious and violent crime? Or that my basic rights need not be considered or respected? Most alarmingly and disturbingly, in the course of my ordeal, some have answered "yes" to these questions. Needless to add, I would like to think there are others who do and would agree with me that such responses are extreme, unjust and grossly reckless and irresponsible.
Again, a major part of my story does involve the occult and people mixed up with the occult, or so I allege, and it is in no small part exactly this that has made these offenders so very dangerous and difficult to investigate or prosecute. What a nightmare it has proven then when in attempting to present my case attorneys and others require that I explain what I am talking about in 25 words or less! That it be further necessary for me to then go on and explain and account for something as outlandish as "brain torture radios" and you can see what an arduous and thankless task is mine. And yet I am and have not been dissuaded by all this from seeking aid and redress knowing as I do that the actual facts and evidence are, if availed of, truly on my side.
Aside from the purported brain torture radios, when I speak of serious crimes, it might well be asked – to what exactly am I referring?
First, let me say the amount of rank violence and other crimes I have been subject to now since 1992 is so numerous and so great that it would not even be possible for me to recollect all the occasions on which such took place, even if I were disposed to do so. However, and this said, the following is a general list of the kind and some of the things I do and have undergone; for their elaboration and specific instances otherwise, see my "Narrative."
* Poisoning, including such as involved use of a hypodermic needle
* Mutilation by way of scars and other excrescences placed upon my body
* Intentional infliction of severe and aggravated emotional distress
* My pets, some cats, stolen from me and or murdered
* Vandalism (including hacking of my computer and websites), breaking and entering, and document and file tampering on my computer
* My communications, whether e-mail, regular mail, phone obstructed and interfered with, and which has on numerous occasions hindered my obtaining legal or other necessary assistance
And also -- though I list this separately for understandable reasons:
* Brain torture radios
* Witchcraft type assaults in which spirit person of varies kinds are and have been used to inflict harm and injury to me.
Is there not in any one of these, let alone all or some of them together, something amiss or some wrong taking place that it is in the purview, indeed the obligation, of the law to look into and, shown to be true as alleged, attempt to correct?
One attorney for years refused to help me on the grounds that I cannot explicitly by name identify who it is that has victimized and subjected me to these purported crimes. To this objection, my response has been and is that even a very slight bit of detective work and investigation of the facts would and will provide and uncover leads and evidence of substance necessary to get at this question. But true it is I concede, if there is no impartial investigation into my claims, I granted am at a loss to provide you with a specific offender. Yet let me if I might express the matter this way. If I can provide an investigator with at least tentative or reasonable grounds for some of the crimes I allege taking place than that, I maintain, is sufficient grounds and justification for either a formal or informal inquiry into my claims and allegations.
At this juncture then let me enumerate a general list of some proofs or possible proofs on my which my claim can be sustained. A number of these make reference to events recounted in my "Narrative," and to which I refer you for further explanation.
* There are (or should be) medical and police records connected to many of the incidences of my being attacked, and which records in some instances, and at very minimum, directly or indirectly show or imply something fishy going on.
* My contains an extensive listing of witnesses and possible witnesses who can, or can help to, corroborate my own claims of what took place. There are a number of persons, such as Bruce Long, a historical crime scholar, or Father Michael Sweeney, of the Dominican School of Philosophy of Berkeley, California, who I was at one time on very friendly and cordial terms with, but who refuse to speak with me now. Find out what such a person’s reason for why they can't or won't speak with me or else, as applies for the given person, why they can no longer be reached (at least not by me anyway.)
* Try contacting a number of the professionals who rejected my petition, and compare with each other their reasons for doing so; accompanied by questions pertaining to what they actually know about me in the first place (as to have felt it all right to have dismissed my pleas.)
* Relating to my reckless driving offense of 2000, some claimed I hit them (in their car), and as result they collected insurance damages from Geico. This charge of being hit and collecting of insurance I know to be a complete fraud, and there is not a doubt in my mind these persons who so collected are in some way connected with the group that has been making my life miserable and causing me all these problems these past 16 years.
* Back on 13 August 2004, copies of my "Narrative," with a suitable cover letter, were personally delivered by me to the Seattle offices of the following persons and public officials listed below. And yet I did not receive back a single reply from any of them, including not even a formal letter saying they were not in a position to be of any help. The question that arises then is 'why?' That some couldn't or wouldn’t reply would be one thing. But that none could or did seems highly irregular.
* If I claim being assaulted by brain torture radios their must at least be some serious basis to my own belief of such; given that on at least two separate occasions back in the early 1990's I went to the medical risk, expense and trouble of having CAT scans done of my head.
* Why is that there is no one, to my knowledge, able or willing or interested in at least looking into my astonishing claims and charges. One would think after the countless letters of appeal for assistance I have previously sent out, and after years of having my own website on the internet pleading my cause that there would have been at least a single person to at least ask and inquire into my claims if only out of curiosity if nothing else.
And there is other evidence but which requires a further knowledge and understanding of my case in order for it to be introduced.
In conclusion and in the meantime for now -- as hard as it is evidently for some to admit and own up to, sinister evil, including certain extreme types of gangsterism, is real and does, in one form or other, exist. The proof of this, if none other, lies in the fact that and if for no other reason, than that there are those who do or will avail themselves of rank evil to secure, maintain, and increase their power and importance. This we see, hear and read about all the time in the news. That some should take things to a monstrous extreme as would constitute rank evil should then come as no real surprise to anyone. And yet who do you know of is willing and prepared to confront and deal with real evil? Not so many, obviously, as one might wish was the case. Those who are responsible for the crimes I allege are such as who do and have availed themselves of the most abject vileness, baseless malice, and cruelty. By my taking a stand against them, I am apparently one of the few that has the courage, intellect and intestinal fortitude to have tried to do so. And yet I am far from being the only one who is and or has been victimized by these monsters. If it is then possible for me to procure assistance in my cause, not only myself but who knows how many other similar sufferers stand to benefit, and regain that level of basic protection from big shot criminals and hoodlum violence that should be seen, if it isn't seen already, as among a citizen’s most fundamental of God given rights and entitlements.
"...So live, that when thy summons comes to join
The innumerable caravan which moves
To that mysterious realm where each shall take
His chamber in the silent halls of death,
Thou go not, like the quarry-slave at night,
Scourged by his dungeon; but, sustain'd and soothed
By an unfaltering trust, approach thy grave,
Like one who wraps the drapery of his couch
About him, and lies down to pleasant dreams."
~ from "Thanatopsis" by William Cullen Bryant
We learn from the Bible that when someone dies they ordinarily go to sleep. The inference one might draw from this seems to be that those spirits who are awake are the exception. If this is so, does it make sense then to this permit this minority(relatively tiny compared to the greater whole of those who have passed on) to have say with, let alone hold sway over, us who are living? But you see this is exactly what does happen, and is why the world is in as sick and diseased a state as it is.
When Christ speaks of the Abraham and the patriarchs being of the living this I would take to mean they are resting with God, and it is being with God that makes them alive. It is also possible to interpret the parable about Abraham, with Lazarus, being unable to give the rich man in Hell some water as a delusion the rich man suffers while in perdition, and which event would not by any means necessarily require or imply the actual Abraham or Lazarus being present.
Congratulations President Obama and other worthy candidates who won yesterday. Although I don't want to otherwise comment on the election and its results, let's just hope and pray that from this point on everyone now does what they are supposed to.
Meanwhile and for our own purposes, here is yet another list of neat websites you might have missed:
A great website for quality freeware word-game puzzles, such as crossword puzzles.
* Neal Ford & The Fanatics Fan Page
Dig this super site with many free music downloads of the 60's pop group from Houston, Texas. Don't neglect to check out the pictures and fan club booklet.
* Keeping Soul Alive
Although I haven't had the opportunity to go through this copious site all that closely, with free soul music downloads and from what I've seen it so far looks very promising.
Another exemplary celebrity website that manifests energy, wit and creativity so sorely absent elsewhere on the internet. Well done!
While he's off on his demonism kick, for scientists of the far out I've done what I thought was the necessary favor of making this special 40 second edited cut (.mp3) of David Hemmings' "Talkin' L.A.;" which song as you recall was part of last week's recommendation. To download, click here.
That you haven’t been yet
Doesn’t mean you’ll never be.
If you can’t grasp that
You don't really grasp infinity.
And who is the truth for
If not for you?
And if it’s yours
Why always hide it?
Where you can always do better
Is right where you are,
And seeing others
Through the mirror
Of a distant triangle or star.
So, be good if only
For whom you love you
Or who love you.
If you got the right going,
Go with the flow
While it’s flowing.
But when it’s stopped,
Let it go, let it go.
Better to never speak again
Than to go on speaking in vain.
Of course, just because someone thinks they know everything it doesn't necessarily follow that they actually do. And yet if the someone in question is a spirit person, people are ten or more times inclined to give that spirit person the benefit of the doubt on this point and assume them to be as wise and knowledgeable as they claim.
And the spirit person will say so and so has broken this or that law, shames them with this or that scandal, or faults them for not sufficiently loving their fellow man. By what standard does he make such judgments? That same standard that permits him to use brain torture radios in secret?
The more I have had time to deal with these people the more and better have I come to better realize and appreciate that there is a certain profoundly medical aspect to evil as we know and encounter it; with so much of evil arising from mind control, behavioral tricks and conditioning; not least of which with respect to that method or technique which starves the subject of real and honest love while training and accustoming them to live off phony substitutes, such as megalomania or, in the case of others, artificial "group" approval.
In addition, it may be taken for granted that in most, if not all instances, evil is a policy carried out by dumb people who are extremely frightened and or brainwashed -- hence the need for an evil one, since none of the others have sufficient intelligence and understanding to oversee evil's strategy and policy.
Some of these people misbehave because it is like an inculcated addiction or compulsion to do so. If they don't do this or that wrong thing someone may or actually will come after them. It then becomes a kind of conditioned reflex to keep doing wrong, most especially hurting and assailing someone. On this score, I think a lot of the absurd and annoying animated and pop up ads on the internet are an instance of this. They don't really sell anything, and obviously serve much more to annoy and create noise than to sell any goods or services.
More Notes from Our J.F.K. File
If it was Oswald who attempted to kill Gen. Walker then presumably he was motivated by his Communist leanings to do this -- and yet later post-assassination scholarship has strong evidence to show that Oswald not only was no such left wing zealot but actually, and to some degree, of the opposite camp.
It was interesting again being able to now re-watch some of these "Man from Uncle" shows circa 1964, and that in them often times the villain, whether spoken of or a specific character in the episode, is some self-serving military general or else a group of extremists out to overthrow some South American political leader. It is further of interest that these two types should be played up as villains because they are among the possible candidates that have in one form or other been suggested as the ones behind the purported conspiracy to assassinate the president. Yet we can safely reason that if the one who took a shot at Gen. Walker was in some way connected to the later presidential assassination, he was clearly not a right wing militarist and very probably not an anti-Castro fanatic. Who then was he? Based on some simple logic, we could reasonably say he was anti-military but not a left extremist (that is not Oswald and assuming a conspiracy.) And, of course and needless to say, an anti-Castro person going after Walker's life makes no sense. If there were a connection between the two separate life attempts then what it seems we would be in a position to infer is that those responsible were anti-military (shooting a general), and probably more or less indifferent to either communism as such or anti-Castroism; since these political view points were used as decoys or patsys for the real culprits. Or so very plausibly the case seems to me. Bear in mind also that from the very beginning it has almost always been a minority of public opinion that assumed Oswald acted alone. Therefore, it was understood by the (alleged) conspirators as necessary to come up with explanations as to who might have been behind a conspiracy such as many people presumed there was, and such as would be used to lead those people off the scent from themselves.
Vilification of the Dallas Police Dept. (as, say, per Melvin Belli [Later Note. Specifically, Belli spoke derogatorily of the City of Dallas, and I presume this effectively includes the DPD. For more see YouTube.]), incidentally, also seems another case of leading people astray. What seems to have happened with the DPD is that they were engulfed with something too big for themselves to handle. They meant well at first, but were understandably made to be baffled, and over time effectively influenced, manipulated and taken over by persons connected to the alleged conspiracy -- with the result that they too came to be seen as actual accomplices -- and therefore also red herrings -- to whom the crime might in some way and measure be attributed.
Later Note. Ordinarily, I avoid passing on putative assertions of fact communicated to me by spirit people on the ground that a) I do not want to encourage them, and b) that as a general rule it is better not to trust what they say. However, last night sometime after writing the above, a spirit person told me something that I thought I would make an exception for. What he said was that the "two" people who shot Pres. Kennedy were persons who were frightened and coerced into doing so, and themselves did not have malicious intent. Later and following the crime, they felt extreme, indeed the pits of, remorse -- for obvious and understandable reasons. While again we have no way of validating the veracity of such a claim as this spirit person made to me, it is at least useful in helping to give us an otherwise unexpected and possibly true explanation of why that shooter or shooters did what they did -- hence, my permitting myself to make an exception to my normal policy of not sharing such purported "inside" information.

Heard In The Gauntlet – A Poem Play
Beaten in the head…
I 'd sooner be left for dead!
Oh, how I would
Have all problems and pain
Solved and fixed!
But failing that
Go to bed instead.
[Later that same day.]
Would that this noise
Could not my words
Make it stop?
Oh that Life could
Once more be embraced
In its most quiet detail!
But it’s difficult to live
If we’re always sick
And I refused to be beguiled
By others tricks and wiles,
Sprung from their idlenesses.
And for all my own weakness,
I shall no slave be;
A prisoner I might,
But no slave me.
How could I have known
Life would take such turns?
But that's not Life,
That’s only my life.
They don't need
To worry about what I do.
What they say is
They hate to think
Of having to die
While they were
Having such a good time of it.
But if die they must --
Then so be it, so be it…
"He Gets to Be Interesting Too"
One thing a person learns about war from playing wargames, as I myself have done in the past and for many years, is that a military unit or vehicle has its given strengths and weaknesses. What a player then seeks to do is make best use of one's own strengths to optimal advantage while and where possible attacking the enemy where he is weakest.
Although I will defer speaking at length on this topic for some future occasion, it is possible for me to make a few remarks about where a devil and devil lead people are most vulnerable -- and that is when it comes to being interesting. Although they may have wherewithal to take over your community or even your country, they make for very poor heroes and or celebrities. Though they seek love and admiration like just about anyone else, their ability and power to effect this in a real and meaningful way tends to be extremely limited, if not absent. We see this, for instance, in their movies, their music, their ideas of romance, their humor; which as a general rule tend overall to be of very poor and forgettable quality (to say the least.) So while the fear and terror they are capable of instilling in others then may be very great and influential, this same power tends to lessen their capacity to be appealing, let alone lovable. Meantime, they have ever sought to get around this deficiency by using grand shows, tricks, propaganda, mind games and illusions; which, when it comes to ignorant people, can be effective in surmounting this lack. Unfortunately for them, however, such tactics work only on the very stupid and ignorant, and even then not all that really much or for very long.
In sum, hit the devil where he is weakest -- and that is in his really not being so very interesting and celebrity like as he would have you and others imagine him to be.
Should the ghoulish magician, the ultimate bad boy, ever happen to pay you a visit, one good song to play for him is this. (The picture above is not actually him, but I thought it appropriate nonetheless.)
Far better it is to write with your ears than your eyes.
The difference is simply this. They see these spirit people who lord it over others as higher powers to be accommodated, if not bowed down to. Myself, on the other hand, sees these same spirit people as an insupportable burden and malady that needs to be eradicated and got rid of. True, my opponents have billions; where (relative to them) I haven't got a dime. But it is the spirit people who truly own the greater share of both themselves and their money. I, at least, am my own man.
Incidentally, since Google (as of recent years) refuses to celebrate Christmas, in protest I, this time around at any rate, am refusing to celebrate Halloween.
No one -- regardless of who it will be -- can hope to salvage the economy by continuing to harbor and have this country remain in partnership with the spirits of damnation and unhappiness.
"The iron-guts guys who kill for medals... dames... or just to stay alive!"
~ Tagline for "War is Hell" (1963), the film Oswald was watching at the time of his arrest. (Anyone know where one can get a copy of this film? I myself can't seem to find it available anywhere.)
Later Note. In fairness to Candy Barr (which stage name, you have to admit, is one of the tackiest you might ever hear), she was actually an accomplished poet, as witnessed by these thoughtful and well composed lines of hers:
"Hate the world that strikes you down,
A warped lesson quickly learned.
Rebellion, a universal sound,
Nobody cares, no one's concerned.
"Fatigued by unyielding strife,
Self-pity consoles the abused,
And the bludgeoning of daily life,
Leaves a gentle mind...confused."
Unfortunately, much like "War is Hell" (only in terms of a greater loss more so), a copy of her 1967 anthology, A Gentle Mind...Confused, it seems is just about no where to be had, except one copy at bookfinder going for $1,253.00.
Take Responsibility for What You Are Doing (Otherwise, It Bespeaks Your Condemnation)
Why would someone who is right have to lie and remain hidden? He would be the shining king of kings, yet after many years remains covered over in the most fuliginous murk and iniquity. He feels entitled to privilege and honors, would place himself at the seat of higher knowledge and wisdom, yet he refuses to openly identify and make himself accountable for his actions; nor is he able to get someone else to do these things on his behalf. Ironic then isn't it? They could face Christ and condemn him. Yet I whom am so infinitely less they could and still cannot face. If you then who do these things (such a brain torture radios and witchcraft type assaults) deem yourself so high and mighty, then why is it, after all this time, you can't, nor can you get anyone else to, face me and take responsibility for what you are doing?
In all the years of being attacked with violence, torture and dirty tricks I could and did fight off an army of regular (i.e. flesh and blood) people, and feel little rancor or enmity toward them. Not counting the slave and poorer sorts among them (and whom I do not blame), these spirit people on the other hand -- and whom these accomplice regular people have used as their excuse and justification -- I have a bitter and profound hatred of. It is they who are the real instigators of all these problems; it is they who mislead and corrupt everyone; it is they from whom the most extreme cruelty and viciousness originates; its they who would place themselves among the gods yet who, for all their glowing angels, keep themselves protected and concealed in deepest darkness, fraud, and duplicity. Did then anyone else who ever lived more merit the most severe censure and punishment justice permits? Did anyone who ever lived more deserve the title of damnable? If so, it would certainly be a most complete and utter wonder.
It is very usual for him to see himself in a movie playing a master's game (and I mean this literally as he has communicated as much to me many times.) But as far as actual ability, he can't even really play chess unless permitted to cheat and bend the rules egregiously.

It is perhaps logically possible to preserve Spinoza's notion that there is no evil, or Leibniz's that this is the best of all possible worlds, if we view evil as not qualifying for existence and or that evil does not partake of existence in the greater scheme of the world, and rather is only an incidental and temporary aberration. The fault then, it could be argued, lies in our living in the incidental and temporary rather than the divine whole. Yet even if we are to blame in choosing to live in this, the expedient and ephemeral world, evil, by the same token, can also be faulted, condemned, and vied against for existing or being active in this less than divine realm and in which most people, as practical matter, do live their lives. So, by this view, while evil is possible in the temporal world, in the grander scheme of things in which there is no time, but only infinity, it does not exist. If then we can escape time we can escape evil -- and in this sense Spinoza and Leibniz, I think, are consistent. Some would of course object that it is impossible to evade Time. However, the response would or might be that if a person adopts a certain religious faith and attitude that renounces the temporal world such evasion of time is or is ultimately attainable. Yet unless we or others are disposed, and honestly, to pursue such a path, it is otherwise correct and permissible to speak of evil existing in this world, and to that extent one can attempt to thwart and combat it without necessarily rejecting Spinoza's or Leibniz's greater vision -- or so it seems, at least, one could plausibly argue.
My "Man from U.N.C.L.E." DVD set just arrived in the mail about a week ago; as part of which I happened to watch one episode, "The Iowa Scuba Affair" (that first aired 29 Sept. 1964.) I must say I was rather appalled at the brutal and salacious tone and character of it. For example, after shooting to death someone's boyfriend on a rather rash and reckless pretext, Agent Solo goes on to date and romance the victim's innocent former girlfriend. As well there are, it could be said, ironic and coincidental parallels in this episode with certain events following the J. F. Kennedy assassination, such as Oswald's silencing; that will raise eyebrows and please conspiracy proponents. As some one of you well already know, some of our favorite drama shows from the 60's were not always above being under bad influence, and occasionally reflect dubious values and morals (including, just incidentally, the almost constant vilification of the military and military leadership, a la "Seven Days in May") -- no doubt, a price that had to be paid back then to keep them "politically" safe and on the air.
I suppose the single question that has boggled me as much or more than any other that has arisen in the course of my ordeal is -- if they devil is not at end a pity case, what then is he? Although I am not entirely sure what the answer to that question is, I can say that at present I am endeavoring to get his personal representative (to me) to sign a legal form confirming that when all is said and done, and worse come to worse, he will not require our, at any time now or in future, feeling sorry for him. Let's see what he says.
And, oh yes, did we ever get around to noting that Shakespeare as well pays more than due attention to the occult and spirit people in such works as "Macbeth," "Hamlet," "King Lear" (in the devilment of Goneril, Regan, and Edmund), "Richard III," "Julius Caesar," and "The Tempest" (to name just some of the pertinent plays?) You must admit -- it's amazing sometimes what one knows but also doesn't know.
It is not infrequently both touching and amusing to observe how despite the culture of corporate demonism and cannibalism (such as we here at this website are wont to address) ordinary, innocent and naive folk, just trying to live life and (knowingly or unknowingly) get through it all, fare under this state of moral and intellectual slavery which society at large has become increasingly subject to in recent decades. A good place to get a glimpse of this phenomena of "good people in bad times" I find is on some of the family "Blog" pages (thanks again to that Oafmorian genius who gave and foisted on everyone that word, "blog"); such as this I came across at:

Later Note. The above URL went down a few months after the above post went up, and I can’t seem to find it’s sequel or revised version on the net. Meanwhile, I did manage to save a photo from the site, and which you can see at: http://www.gunjones.com/hadley.jpg It is such a cute set of pictures, I did not want them being lost to you my readers. This said, if the Hadley family would rather I not make it available, by all means, if they write and let me know I’ll remove and take the link down.
Just for the record and for the benefit of the more slow in catching up -- it is not a matter of deifying children and animals but rather of deifying fairness, justice and innocence, and that these latter are necessary adjuncts to true higher beauty make this divinity that much more worthy one's trust and devotion.

If the events and characters taking place in Henry James' The Turn of the Screw were to be taken as literal and actual, or based on what was literal and actual, how should or might they be construed and interpreted?
First, I myself rather take it for granted that many of the ideas for the story and its separate incidents were based on real life happenings, and which either James himself experienced or else he learned about from others. Using these real life experiences as source material, he then joined together and tailored them to suit the requirements and needs of his novella. The very debate about whether the governesses supernatural sight was real or merely psychological in origin is itself to me an instance of a spirit person victimizing someone; and by creating circumstances by which the do-good governess' sanity, credibility and reputation are impugned, a ghost sorcerer could both weaken and inflict pain on her -- with the work's title itself being a reference to intentional torture.
It is assumed by the governess that Peter Quint and Miss Jessel are after the souls of the children. Now when we speak of someone, such as Quint is averred to be, being after someone's soul this means that he seeks to control their hearts and their minds -- for these are the primary seats of the soul, and controlling what a person most loves and thinks is specifically how you subjugate or imprison their soul.
In real life, Quint (and Jessel) could not on his own prestige and smarts just come back from the dead and seek to molest and make the children captives. He of himself would not have the wherewithal or expertise to do this, but would require the powers and professional acumen of an occult adept just to return to this world. Moreover, and assuming it was actually himself who was making such return visitations to the manor (and not someone pretending to be him), he would most likely be acting as he does in obedience to and or for purposes for paying back some powerful spirit person, such as a ghost sorcerer or other executive devil. He himself would not need or want to so ruin the children -- such a premeditated design is grandiose, ambitious and extremely unusual indeed. Nor would he think about doing this sort of thing in such emphatic and explicit terms were not someone else, a veteran, explaining to him why this was desirable and how it was possible to bring it about. At the same time, Quint's own motive in participating in such a scheme would be based more on paying back a debt he owes or otherwise answering to someone else rather than any overriding desire of his own to so mortally harm the children, his own mere lust for them (assuming there was such) alone, in any case, being insufficiently important to effect that purpose.
For regrettable, if understandable, reasons many have and harbor strange and primitive ideas about both God and spirit people as a result of too literal and unthinking an interpretation of ancient texts, and, in addition, as intended by the influence and propaganda of tyrannical and self-serving spirit people themselves. And even if you grant, say, the given Bible story to be fully accurate, truthful, sacred, and legitimate, your diabolical and or merely criminal spirit people sorts can ape and recreate similar events and experiences as such tales recount. This being the case how is someone to tell the difference?
Here are some tips:
* Demand honesty and forthrightness from anyone you deem more good than ordinary, let alone divine -- and just as you would of any decent and above average person.
* If the devil can only speak with a forked tongue (and not in plain language) that is his problem. It is not intrinsically required of you to read and or attempt to unravel his riddles and secret sign messages.
* If the spirit person or spirit "power" by inference or implication asks you to exchange yours and your family's lives in exchange for the most phenomenal magic tricks imaginable this of itself will provide you with the information necessary to know you are dealing with someone crooked.
* The feeling a spirit persons, such as but not exclusively angels, can cause you to feel is in its force of impact (though not literally) like that of a helicopter hovering closely overhead. The idea is to pressure, awe, and intimidate you with their power while predictably attempting to manipulate you into believing that they represent higher authority and or benevolence. In a word -- stand your ground, and think about what is going on and why they are behaving as they do.
* "Let's pluck out his eyes and beat him with clubs" -- this sort of attitude and conduct comes only from spirit people, and I mention it to give you a sense of just the kind of people you might find yourself dealing with -- for all their "amazing grace" and religious pretense.
The grief a person might know and experience in this life as a result of feeling real pity and sorrow for others can sometimes be enough to kill a person, at least such as feel deeply.
Now get a load of him (Oafmore.) Years ago he went around telling people you've got to play rough and be ruthless to get what you want and need in life. Since then and many murders, ruined lives, ruined families, and ruined businesses and careers later, he goes around with a billion dollars in his pocket forcing himself on others while acting like he is supposed to be some kind of attractive and appealing celebrity.
After all the murders, the rapes, the tortures, the robberies well might you ask -- what's it all for anyway? Well, we have that very answer in the YouTube clip below. You think me joking but I am not, and if you don't know whom the Tinker Bell character is based on just go ask the real Steven Spielberg; as there is not a doubt in my mind that he is someone who has himself met her.
Later Note. No I don't, and nor should you, really blame spirit person girls of this kind for what goes on; as they are mere pawns and puppets of others manipulating the situation.
To continue with some posting, here's another from "SRO": this time from Les Elgart and titled, appropriately enough, "Voodoo Drums" (2.2 MBs)
Me they physically torture, censor, cut off my communications and rob me of my basic rights to live and work (even though Seattle attorney Charles Hamilton is certain there is no proof of this!) You, on the other hand, they pay, let work, publish and produce because they know you pose no real threat to anyone. Go ahead then and cry out to the world what a threat to democracy Sarah Palin is; since what rational or intelligent person takes you and your braying seriously in the first place?
As for myself, I am not taking particular sides in the Presidential election as they each seem to me to have something worthwhile to recommend them. Let us only hope and pray, however, that whoever is elected has more real heart and integrity than these political prostitutes and putative pundits who, on behalf of the nation, scold and vilify anyone who is outspoken and dares to speak out as an individual.
