Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way” – Synopsis Of An Illuminati Manifesto

with 2 comments

March 8, 2011: Vigilant Citizen Editors / Vigilant Citizen.com – March 7, 2011

Lady Gaga’s single “Born This Way” introduces the viewers to the birth of a “new race” and to a new world, using intricate imagery and a precise narrative. It is a psychedelic trip filled with occult and archetypal symbols, telling the story of a cosmic birth and new ideals. However, behind its outward message of acceptance, a more sinister message lies embedded in the symbolism of the video. We will look at the underlying meaning of “Born This Way” and analyze the meaning of the occult symbolism in the video.

Lady Gaga is back, y’all.  And she’s got horns on her forehead. And she’s in space. And she’s making 90′s dance music. And my head just exploded. But seriously, Born this Way seems to provoke in people two opposite reactions, depending on their knowledge of occult symbolism. It is either “What the heck just happened here?” or “This is really blatant”. 

The reason is simple. The video contains new strange elements that might confuse viewers but it also contains symbolism that is extremely ancient. Although the video is set in a futuristic, intergalactic world, it deals with the most primal concept of humanity: motherhood. It plays on human’s archetypal fascination and/or repulsion towards the act of giving birth.

Although the lyrics of Born This Way are about unconditional acceptance, with a special focus on homosexuality, the video’s scope goes way beyond the subject of sexual orientation. It narrates the birth of a new race within humanity. Laurieann Gibson, the creative director of the video describes this concept:

“At first, when I thought about birthing a new race and adding the prosthetics, I thought that maybe they should have a certain way they should walk or maybe they move a certain way, but then I realized it is actually a race within our race; it’s a mindset.”Source

Gaga is not giving birth to a human but to a “new race” within humanity. The symbolism of the video makes it clear that this birth is not natural, but artificially provoked. A twisted immaculate conception. As is the case for most Lady Gaga videos, the theme of mind control is important in the video. It is the process through which the metamorphosis will take place. In Monarch programming terms, we are witnessing the birth of a new persona within the “core personality” of humanity. The birth is happening within the minds of people and is visually represented by creepy facial horns.

(If you have not read previous articles on this site, mind control programming is the process through which a handler causes within a subject the “birth” of a new persona that can be programmed at will, through trauma and abuse. It is an actual process used by the CIA – MK-Ultra – and symbolism pertaining to this practice is widely present  in popular culture. In the context of the video, the programming does not happen on a single person, but on a mass scale – a new race).

Furthermore, the esoteric imagery in the video describes a world change that is occurring as an alchemical process: The creation of magic through the unification of opposing forces portrayed through the use of archetypal symbols and messages. Yup, we’re still talking about a Lady Gaga video… [read more below]

Obama Vetoes UN Vote On Illegal Israel Land Grabs And Genocide

with one comment

February 18, 2011: Al Jazeera Editors / Al Jazeera – February 18, 2011

Washington blocks resolution condemning Israeli buildings on Palestinian land as illegal and calling for quick halt…

The United States vetoed a UN resolution Friday that would have condemned Israeli settlements as “illegal” and called for an immediate halt to all settlement building.

All 14 other Security Council members voted in favour of the resolution.

British Ambassador Mark Lyall Grant, speaking on behalf of his country, France and Germany, condemned Israeli settlements in the West Bank. “They are illegal under international law,” he said.

He added that the European Union’s three biggest nations hope that an independent state of Palestine will join the United Nations as a new member state by September 2011.

The Obama administration’s veto is certain to anger Arab countries and Palestinian supporters around the world. An abstention would have angered the Israelis, the closest US ally in the region, as well as Democratic and Republican supporters of Israel in the American Congress.

Washington says it opposes settlements in principal, but claims that the UN Security Council is not the appropriate venue for resolving the decades-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

US ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice told council members that the veto “should not be misunderstood to mean we support settlement activity.

“While we agree with our fellow council members and indeed with the wider world about the folly and illegitimacy of continued Israeli settlement activity, we think it unwise for this council to attempt to resolve the core issues that divide Israelis and Palestinians,” she said.

Palestinians said the veto is counterproductive to the peace process, helps Israel maintain illegal buildings.

“The American veto does not serve the peace process and encourages Israel to continue settlements, and to escape the obligations of the peace process,” said Nabil Abu Rdainah, a close aide to Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.

Pressure To Drop Resolution

Earlier, the Obama administration has exerted pressure on the Palestinian Authority to drop the UN resolution in exchange for other measures.

Abbas has refused Washington’s request to withdraw a UN Security Council resolution demanding Israel to freeze settlement expansion on occupied Palestinian land.

The decision was made unanimously by the Palestine Liberation Organisation’s executive and the central committee of Abbas’s Fatah movement on Friday, at a meeting to discuss US President Barack Obama’s appeal to Abbas by telephone a day earlier.

“The Palestinian leadership has decided to proceed to the UN Security Council, to pressure Israel to halt settlement activities. The decision was taken despite American pressure,” said Wasel Abu Yousef, a PLO executive member.

Obama, who had said Israeli settlements in territories it captured in a 1967 war are illegal and unhelpful to the peace process, says the resolution could shatter hopes of reviving the stalled talks.

Palestinians say continued building flouts the internationally-backed peace plan that will permit them to create a viable, contiguous state on the 1967 land, after a treaty with Israel to end its occupation and 62 years of conflict.

Israel says this is an excuse for avoiding peace talks and a precondition never demanded before during 17 years of negotiations, which has so far produced no agreement.

The diplomatic standoff is complicated by the effects of Middle East turmoil on the Arab League, whose members backed the resolution. Egypt, a dominant member, and Tunisia are preoccupied with their transitions from deposed autocracies, and protests are flaring in Libya, Yemen and Bahrain.

Washington is trying to revive peace talks stalled since September over Israel’s refusal to extend a moratorium on settlement building and Abbas’s refusal to negotiate further until the Israelis freeze the illegal buildings.

‘Nothing To Lose’

Obama initially pressured Israel to maintain the moratorium only to relent in the run-up to the 2010 US mid-term elections to avoid, some analysts said, alienating key voters.

Instead of the resolution, Obama told Abbas he would back a fact-finding visit by a delegation of the Security Council to the occupied territories.

One PLO official said the leadership was determined not to cave in “even if our decision leads to a diplomatic crisis with the Americans”, adding: “Now we have nothing to lose.”

Kristin Saloomey, Al Jazeera’s correspondent in New York, said that the US has been doing everything it can to stop this vote from happening, including incentives and threats.

“Apparently Obama threatened [on the phone to Abbas] that there would be repercussions if this vote actually came to the floor of the UN Security Council,” she said.

“Today secretary of state, Hilary Clinton, called president Abbas [to put on more pressure] but none of this is getting through to the Palestinians.

“Obama is facing intense domestic pressure not to support the vote. The US is in a tough position, they know that a veto is going to make them look very bad in the Arab world … and also the rest of the world is really in support of this resolution.

“All of the Security Council members are on the record saying they are going to vote for this resolution including US allies”.

Since 2000, 14 Security Council resolutions have been vetoed by one or more of the five permanent members — Britain, China, France, Russia and the United States. Of those, 10 were US vetoes, nine of them related to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

“Meltzer’s Decoded” – R.C. Christian And The Georgia Guidestones

leave a comment »

February 15, 2011: Terry Melanson / Illuminati Conspiracy Archive – February 5, 2011

I’ve only watched three episodes of Meltzer’s show, online, and each of them was dissatisfying. The latest one on the Georgia Guidestones was especially so.

The Meltzer gang of ostensible noobies, drive up to the monument in a brand new Porsche Cayenne. (Way to go guys, my kind of sponsor!) After giving the stones a quick look, they are approached by Raymond Wiley who proceeds with an accurate but cursory account. Wiley mentions that people have suspected a Malthusian, new world order agenda behind it. I would also have included the words “population control” and eugenics. But guess what? Not a single mention of it again in the whole episode. Instead they focus on the Rosicrucian angle and neglect to actually get to the bottom of the message. Hey, History Channel “researchers” – you do know that Mr. “Christian,” in a booklet, actually expounded further on the matter, don’t you? More on that later.

Back on the road, Bud starts talking about trying to find out the identity of R. C. Christian, and whether he was really involved with the Rosicrucians. Scott, however, interrupts with a better line of thought: “Don’t you wonder what’s running through the mind of a person who conceived of that [whole] idea?”

Cut to Brad Meltzer who gives a bit of background on the Rosicrucians, but stops short of informing the audience that this thing called “Rosicrucianism” – its self-perpetuated myths, allegories and traditions (oral, written, initiatic or otherwise) – is ubiquitously venerated throughout all of western esotericism: from Freemasonry to the Golden Dawn, OTO and Martinist sects, to Theosophy, the New Age and New Thought Movements, the so-called “Secret,” Templar pretenders, UFO Space Brother cults, utopian new religions, even the occult Aryan sects of Nazi Germany.

The next guest on the episode was someone I was looking forward to seeing. Van Smith, however, actually ends up looking like a crank. He claims that he was interviewed for several hours. I would bet that Mr. Van Smith amply expounded upon population control, the elite eugenic agenda and how it is identical in content to at least three of the Guidestones’ commandments, not to mention R. C. Christian’s own explanatory “Manifesto.” Yet what they choose to include in his allotted 2-minute spot speaks volumes about their supposed impartiality.

Since Van Smith mentioned that some Rosicrucians have claimed spectacular powers of mind manipulation, the team now have a convenient excuse to get completely off-track from the serious and documentable topic of “population control” and those who have traditionally held such views. So, for the rest of the show the viewer is treated to Bud obsessing about psychic powers, Christine giggling about it, mystic occultist Bette Jo Benner – “an ordained minister of The Church of Illumination, the church of the Rosecrucian Fraternity, and Priestess of Melchizadek” – espousing an alchemical and Gnostic view of Christ, the 2012 canard, cataclysmic earth changes, Edgar Cayce, coronal mass ejections and manipulating machines with your mind. Standard “History” and “Discovery” fare – an all-too obvious agenda in and of itself.

Before Meltzer’s standard wrap-up at the end, the team stands next to the Guidestones while Bud elucidates what they have come to mean for him: “I don’t really care who put these here. Whether or not it was Rosicrucians, the fact that this installment … got us looking at Rosicrucians, got us looking at their history, what their beliefs were, again, that gets us back to looking at the origins of human thought and human belief. And so, to me, I’m glad they’re here. Because it gets ya talkin.” Fine. Then let’s talk, for real. Shall we, professor?

To begin with, the first guest they talked to has a forthcoming book on the Georgia Guidestones, is well-spoken, and clearly articulates the most pertinent details about the monument in a short video…

The Georgia Guidestones from disinformation on Vimeo.

He again acknowledges the Malthusian flavour of the guidelines, but adds an additional insight: that the language – a population of 500 million, including the “cancer on the earth” bit – is reminiscent of “what I would define as late-1970s Ted Turner environmentalism. It’s got very much that kind of quality to it … and lots of mentions of nature, nature, nature.”

Precisely. I wrote a comment at another blog last year that underscored much the same thing:

“The edifice, its message and supposed author, bears the signature of a Rosicrucian, new age, elite environmental philanthropic ethos that reached its apogee in the 80s and early 90s – people like Ted Turner and Maurice Strong and the globalists in the Club of Rome and the Aspen Institute. Environmentalism, population control, impeding catastrophe, world government, allusions to esotericism or occult traditions – it is all there in the saga of the guidestones, just as it is with the new age elite-turned-globalist billionaires.”

Anyone familiar at all with the tenets of population control, Malthusianism, and misanthropic environmentalism, will pick up on it immediately. And why so many of us aren’t aware of these things is a very serious question, especially when you take into account that these same misanthropic pontificators (backed by the elite, universities, foundations and think tanks) have seriously discussed the possibility of adding sterilants to the water supply in order to cull the human herd. The “History” channel, as is obvious, will not touch it with a ten thousand-foot pole. On purpose. And that’s no conspiracy “theory.”

I’ve looked into this for quite some time, and there’s a lot of material on this site devoted to it. Have a look around for context. Then come back and compare it with the actual views of R.C. Christian.

R.C. Christian’s “Common Sense Renewed”

The mysterious R. C. Christian gave the Elberton Granite Association a book to sell about six years after the Georgia Guidestones were erected. Under the pseudonym “Robert Christian,” the views espoused within “Common Sense Renewed” are quite revealing. Unfortunately I do not have a complete copy of it. However, there’s a partial extract on the web that we can analyse. (Alas, the whole thing should have been scanned and shared on BitTorrent a long time ago.)

Starting with the preface, we get the first major clue about the ideological underpinnings of Mr. “Christian”:

“Using common sense as our guide we must unite with the entire human family in establishing a limited world government capable of settling international disputes through a system of law. We must establish as a parallel objective the building of an enduring balance between human activities and the world of nature. These will be [the] first steps in creating an enduring Age of Reason.”

This is classic globalist speak. Adam Weishaupt of the Illuminati used to preach to his initiates in the same manner (replete with “nature this” and “reason that”), though they called it cosmopolitanism back then:

“The secret schools of wisdom have the means, and are the repository of Nature and of human rights. It is through them that man will recover from his fall. Princes and nations will disappear from the earth without violence. Mankind will become a family one day, and the world an abode [for] reasonable men…Reason alone shall be the sole code of man. This is one of our great mysteries.”

– Adam Weishaupt, in Nachtrag von weiteren Originalschriften, welche die Illuminatensekte [Supplement to the Original Writings concerning the Sect of the Illuminati], II, (1787), pp. 80-1 [my translation]

And traditionally, the “new world order” rhetoric of the elite has invariably been accompanied by the longing for some sort of “world government,” and disdain for patriotism and nationalism. It seems to have been coined in the 1860s by the founder of the Bahá’í Faith. According to Bahá’u’lláh, a genuine “New World Order” required the establishment of a World Government, World Parliament, World Code Of Law, World Tribunal, World Police Force, World Language, a permanent single currency, an international uniform tax, and unity of all the world’s religions under the umbrella of the Bahá’í Faith.

Another typical example is the current president of the Council on Foreign Relations:

“The near monopoly of power once enjoyed by sovereign entities is being eroded … states must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies … Globalization thus implies that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but that it needs to become weaker … The goal should be to redefine sovereignty for the era of globalization, to find a balance between a world of fully sovereign states and an international system of either world government or anarchy.”

– Richard Haass, President of the Council on Foreign Relations, Feb. 21st, 2006

In chapter two, Christian again repeats the “world government” mantra, that the “human family” must “welcome a global rule by reason.”

Also in chapter two, his Malthusianism is laid bare; lamenting the difficulties of “building of a rational world society” because of “human population pressures.”

“The most pressing world environmental problem is the need to control human numbers. … To control our reproduction is crucial […] Reproduction is no longer explicitly a personal matter. […] It is vitally important that each national government have a considered population policy. The need is urgent and should take precedence over other problems, even those relating to national defense. Population control is a global problem.”

And so, he gets to the heart of the matter – freedom. Contrary to Mr. “Christian’s” views, reproduction is not just a personal matter. If the right to reproduce is restricted by the State – localized, worldwide or otherwise – personal liberty is completely gone. Convicts in prison, throughout the western world, are even allowed such basic freedom (through conjugal visits). The jailer is certainly less cruel than the systems theory technocrat.

He then continues with a discussion about “controlling human fecundity” (i.e. human fertility), through scientific means, as well as abortion, and whether the latter form of killing should be considered “murder” compared with, say, being drafted into war!

R. C. Christian is hardly alone in this thinking, unfortunately. The elite have funded and commissioned academic studies on population control for nearly a century. When Mr. Christian was having thoughts about inscribing his views in stone for future generations, Kingsley Davis and his ilk were producing such “reasoned judgment” as this:

“A regime of complete freedom in reproduction would be anarchy … The tenet of the family-planning approach – ‘to extend to women and men the freedom and means to determine the number of children. . . .’ – is not a prescription for any social control, much less population control. […] If a new order capable of providing population control under conditions of low mortality is to be forged, it will come in no other way than by social regulation of rights and obligations with respect to childbearing. […] When people themselves are the problem, the solution is always difficult, because subject and object are one and the same. […] Freedom has always been denied to murderers, rapists, and armed thieves. If having too many children were considered as great a crime against humanity as murder, rape, and thievery, we would have no qualms about “taking freedom away.” Indeed, it would be defined the other way around: a person having four or more children would be regarded as violating the freedom of those other citizens who must help pay for rearing, educating, and feeding the excess children. The reason why reproductive freedom is still regarded as “a basic human right” regardless of circumstances is of course that it accords with traditional sentiments and established institutions.”

Placed in the corner of an old bookshelf
Covered with cobwebs and dust from the years
Forgotten prose near Shakespeare and Poe
Lay a book of poetry bound in black leather

Authored by One through the quills of many
Ancient writings within guilded pages
The Sword of Light passed down through the ages

Published for those who believe and rejoice
The end of the world’s satanic devise
A promise to those who make the wise choice
Eternal life by the grace of Christ

Pray for the people who pled to not know
The Word of God in the Bible they owned
Never once read by their eyes now dead

Trembling where they go…

America Through The Looking Glass: Journey On A Greyhound Bus

with 5 comments

January 8, 2011: Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report (TTR) – January 8, 2011

Rather than get porno scanned or sexually molested by the TSA, I decided to take a Greyhound bus cross-country. This was the first leg of my four part 5000 mile journey… I was shocked at how many people were traveling by bus nearly a week after the New Year. The stations were packed, there were numerous delays, buses were sold out, and extra buses and drivers had to be called in at nearly every stop in order to accommodate the overload in what Greyhound continually apologized for by saying it was due to the end of the holiday travel season.

However, with the exception of a group of soldiers whom I’ll mention later, not one person ever mentioned to me, nor did I overhear anyone say, that they were returning home from the holidays. They were all going somewhere. Did they opt to ride instead of fly due to the TSAs unconstitutional police state tactics? Because the savings to take Greyhound were insignificant compared to flying at the time.

Anyway, having crisscrossed America countless times, I couldn’t help but notice on this trip just how rundown and seemingly desolate so many of the cities and towns appeared to be that we had either passed by while on the highway or when we actually stopped in a town that was a scheduled stop. It eerily reminded me of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand… “Who is John Galt?”

Maybe part of it was that I was not flying at 30,000 feet or preoccupied with actually driving myself, and maybe it was also due to the fact that there was no snow anywhere and thus everything and everywhere was a dreary and brown painting of bare desolation.

If my recollection serves me correctly, this may have been the only time I had ever traveled between the upper Midwest and the far Southeast in January and saw no snow along the entire trip, even though it was unseasonably cold all the way down to Florida. But there was more to it than that.

The highways were typically strewn with litter, mostly old food packages, tossed out coffee and soda cups, plastic bags, beer cans and broken bottles which all stood out on the barren landscape like beacons of poverty atop the lifeless terrain. And every so often a handmade cross with a name written on it had been erected marking the death of yet another unfortunate motorist along the roadside.

Dilapidated billboards advertising their outdated products or services from days long past left a lasting image of a once thriving country now succumbing to decay, as did the countless empty shops and store fronts in the strip malls along the way.

On occasion there was a glimmer of hope with fleeting signs of some semblance of a bygone American quality of life as I noticed a spattering of golfers hitting the links, which more resembled poorly designed martian landscapes in a low-budget sci-fi movie in the January emptiness of vacant dormancy.

Heading up into the carved out mountains of Tennessee showed evidence of once great engineering feats from decades ago. A time when America still actually created and built things. Today this country only builds insurmountable debt and poverty while creating nothing but unending wars and destruction.

The mountains were also surprisingly absent of any snow, even as giant icicles dangled from the cliff sides as we passed through the man-made canyons as potholes continually rocked the bus with bone jarring jolts. Another sign of perpetual decay in an America that once stood as a pillar of progress and ingenuity. A country the world round that others once strived to emulate, is now a skeleton of greed.

The sky is no longer the deep dark blue of my youth, but rather the all too typical milky white haziness we have all become so accustomed to as chemtrails slashed the sky with their poison that were clearly visible literally every mile along the way until the leaking horizon kissed the ocher earth.

The stars overhead in Georgia however were unusually bright, until you looked down to 45 degrees from the horizon where they disappeared behind the manufactured wax paper that now shrouds the atmosphere in a ghostly white. The bus rolled on… “I said be careful his bowtie is really a camera.”

On one of the buses there was a group of Army recruits returning from the holidays to Ft. Benning outside of Atlanta to complete their basic training. While having a smoke at one of the stops somewhere in Tennessee, or maybe it was Kentucky, I told them about the notorious School of Assassins (School of America’s) at Ft. Benning.

The young men, most just boys really, looked at me sheepishly and repeated a phrase that all of us who have served in the military have heard before… “We don’t know anything. We’re on a need to know basis.” I laughed, told them I was a former Marine and that I understood completely.

I then went on to say that I wanted them all to remember one thing during their tour of duty, “Remember the oath you all took… to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States of America against both foreign and domestic enemies.”

I then said, “There’s a lot of bad guys running this country.” Most were silent, but a few chimed in in unison and said, “We know.”

They were all seemingly good kids, much like I was at that age when I joined, but if deployed to Iraq or Afghanistan, they will invariably return vastly different, if at all, than the innocence I encountered during our journey that day.

While traveling through Florida I engaged in a fascinating conversation with a gentleman who admitted to being a Master Mason after I brought up Freemasonry and the Illuminati while in another conversation about the Bible with someone else. I was pleasantly surprised with his knowledge concerning the Masonic and Illuminati symbology on the back of the dollar bill, as well as many other aspects of secret societies and the New World Order.

We talked for hours while several others listened intently as we discussed everything from Project Blue Beam to the Bible to the Federal Reserve to the slaughter of Palestinians by Israel and a number of other related topics as the bus rolled on from Ocala to Orlando at three something in the morning. I hope a seed was planted amongst them who were listening. That is how liberty grows.

Finally, in Orlando, America reared its ugly police state fascism during a four hour layover before heading to Melbourne. I had just traveled via Greyhound through six states, totaling 31 hours at that point with no searches or violations of my Fourth Amendment.

I walked in the station from the bus platform, put the bulk of my luggage at my next departing gate, then walked past two gun toting rent-a-cops searching incoming passengers from the front entrance and walked out to the smoking area with my laptop and another small back pack.

I had a smoke and walked past the people in line being searched, since I had obviously already been in the “secure” zone, when the shortest of the two rent-a-cops told me to stop and go to the end of the line to be searched.

I said that I had just walked out to have a smoke, when he repeated in a contemptuous tone to get back to the end of the line. Needless to say, after 31 hours of riding buses, I was incensed at this point. I waited nearly 20 minutes before it was my turn to empty my pockets into a tray, place my laptop and bag on a table, then stand spread eagle as I was wanded both front and back, then asked to remove my hat.

The shorter of the two rent-a-cops, who was the officer in charge of this Stasi checkpoint, had that typical psychopathic attitude of superiority burning in his napoleanic eyes. He rifled through my personal belongings in both bags, then checked the contents of the tray, including looking inside my cigarette pack.

Afterward, when nothing of interest was found and my bags and the tray were handed back to me, I asked this little prick, “So, are you going to do this every time I go out to have a smoke during the next four hours?” He responded flatly, “Yes.”

I then said in a rather authoritative tone, “So what you’re telling me is that I can’t smoke while I wait here for the next four hours until my bus arrives without getting searched every time I come in… Correct?”

“No, go ahead and smoke. We’ll just leave you out there until the end when we’re done searching everyone else…Do you have any knives?” “Nope.” I answered just as flatly as he had earlier. “Do you have any drugs?” “Nope.” I took my belongings and walked away letting him clearly know by my glare of contempt and disgust that I was not at all pleased with this unconstitutional treatment.

This blatant violation of my Fourth Amendment happened two more times during the course of four hours with this little jackboot Nazi piece of shit searching me again and again each time I came back in from having a smoke.

The last time I was out smoking, I had just returned from getting a cup of coffee across the street, when this simpleton with a badge and a gun came up behind me outside and said, “I don’t believe I checked your ticket.” I said, “What? You saw it twice when I put it in the tray.”

He said, “I just did a ticket check of all the passengers inside and I did not check yours.” At this point I just pulled out my ticket and handed it to him. He inspected it, handed it back and turned to go inside where I was then promptly searched for the third time when I re-entered the station.

During the entire four hours I was inside the Orlando bus station, I just glared at him as he would periodically march around the area with all the self importance of an SS officer while always glancing over my way. So, I thought I would have a little fun…

I kept moving around to see if he was purposely watching me, and each time I moved he would look around to see where I was, and each time he did he was met with a glare until he would finally turn away. When he did, I would move again. These are the punks who are supposedly keeping us safe from the invisible boogeymen lurking amongst us? Welcome to Amerika!

I got on my bus without further incident, and when I arrived in Melbourne, a Limo service was awaiting to take me to my final destination on this leg of the journey.

It truly was sad as I peered out at America through the looking glass, a country I once honorably served as a US Marine and yet no longer recognize… – SJH
