There will be no awakenings, just recycling. The Past is Never Dead:

"It's all now, you see. Yesterday won't be over until tomorrow and tomorrow began ten thousand years ago."

~ William Faulkner

I've practiced this. It makes no sense, but it really works:

"At a certain point the alternative versions of all of this information no longer matters. What does matter is the balance of energy on the inside. Free flow of energy or not... We walk through the world being constantly challenged. At some point we have to realize that what we feel on the inside is creating life outside. We are magnetized and we can decide what we attract. We're more than anything that we were ever taught. It truly is all about frequency."

Sounds like woo, but as I said, I've done it in the past consciously. It was a long process. No, not TheSecret©.

Right now, I am shutting almost everything out of my life. There is a reason, as old as life and death.

So are we...

And besides:

I know the standard meaning, but also...

This is where I've been for a while.

Interesting source material:

Googling takes one back to your source instead of the print ready page:

Conservatives and GOP talking points don't usually play well at DU:

6 Takeaways From the Benghazi Panel’s First Hearing on Security Failures

The House special committee investigating the Benghazi terrorist attacks today convened its first public hearing, examining progress in implementing security improvements at U.S. embassies and…

Mr. Gowdy has been savaged repeatedly at DU, as he continued his Benghazi obsession. He says he will continue the hearings through 2016 and all the way to 2024 if HRC is elected. And that he intends to impeach both Obama and Biden. So, your source is not fondly regarded here. And he keeps on going after the House decided nothing was wrong:

Trey Gowdy’s Benghazi setback: New humiliation for GOP’s scandal hunter

As the GOP's Benghazi committee schedules its first hearing, another committee finds no evidence of a conspiracy


In case you were at all concerned that the relative lack of Benghazi news of late meant that the issue was finally receding after nearly two years of intensive and fruitless investigation, fear not: in just a few short weeks, Benghazi-mania will live and breathe again. Rep. Trey Gowdy, chair of the House select committee tasked with beating whatever Benghazi bushes and dead horses remain, announced on July 30 that his committee’s first hearings will take place in September. If past is prologue, then Gowdy’s people will likely take advantage of the slow August news cycles and leak a few stripped-of-context tidbits to some bored and easily misled reporters. With the midterms bearing down, you’ll have all the necessary ingredients for yet more obsessive Benghazi “scandal” coverage.

It’s still not clear, though, what exactly anyone hopes to learn from Gowdy’s investigation, given that Benghazi has already been scrutinized several times over by several different congressional committees, all of which concluded that Benghazi was a tragedy, but there was no administration conspiracy, and no cover-up. And the day after Gowdy announced when his first hearings would be held, yet another committee reached the same conclusion.

On July 31, the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence voted in favor of releasing a declassified version of its findings from its investigation into Benghazi. Almost immediately, the top-ranking Democrats on the committee started broadcasting the report’s conclusions. Ranking member Rep. Dutch Ruppersberger released a statement saying:

The report also shows that the process used to develop the talking points was flawed, but that the talking points reflected the conflicting intelligence assessments in the days immediately following the crisis. Finally, the report demonstrates that there was no illegal activity or illegal arms sales occurring at U.S. facilities in Benghazi. And there was absolutely no evidence, in documents or testimony, that the Intelligence Community’s assessments were politically motivated in any way...

Please give me a link about HRC shredding documents twenty years ago. You say you're going to vote for someone else if HRC is nominated. But this is 2014. Any picks for this year?

EDIT: I may have found your Bernie and Hillary reference. It doesn't say documents being shredded in 1994, but definitely doesn't invite anyone to vote Democratic:


To find that shredding in 1994 reference, I went to:


The interview is a wash, not a whitewash, but nothing is decided, despite the number of GOPers asking questions. But it has been a GOP boiler plate for twenty years now.

I want Bernie to run in the primaries to make other candidates take a stand one way or the other. I don't expect him to win, because of his age and disposition. Unfortunately, that is the case in American politics now.

I have trouble with believing Hillary will win, unless she has a ground game we don't see here. I don't even know if she will run. Bernie said on MTP that he would likely run as a Democrat in order to make use of their fifty state organization. I also doubt he can win.

Sherrod Brown is unknown, but might get Democratic Party support. Meanwhile, we have an election to win in less than two months. We are finishing the primaries in the Senate, HoR and state house races.

Nice. Wonder if they are related to the Bahá'í Faith or Sufism? Just curious.

IDK if these groups are for the rights of the individual in other respects.

I can think of 70 million good things that are taken for granted right now:

That's how many veterans, elderly, children, disabled and poor persons are paid directly or indirectly every single month. And today I found this:

Typical dramatic series and radio show programs require fear and tension to tip the attention span of viewers (or readers) to be stressed and receptive to propaganda.

No solution to problems, and no process offered, leaves a default position of letting heirarchies, such as corporations and theolocrats, take control of what should be rational, democratically decided issues with equality for all.

That's what 'government of, by and for the people' requires. Instead, with negative imprinting and no civics knowledge, we will get oligarchy and oppression. The evil old government won't be involved anymore, and there will be no process of appeal.

Then some squeal about it when it's too late, as no vision existed before, nor was it allowed to stand without being jeered to death. JMHO.

Good work, Obama and Democrats! VAFFANCULO REPUBBLICANI !!! (Tx4obama)

Sure you understand what I mean...

And not he-man women haters, either! They told me so!

For Members of the BOG, Warning of Another Gate: What is Obama drinking at the White House?

At a White House rich in coffee lore, no word on president’s preference

By Matt Viser - September 15, 2014

Caffeine consumption in the West Wing has, apparently, become a state secret.

WASHINGTON - A recipe for beer brewed by the White House? The Obama administration happily shares it. A list of wines served at state dinners? No problem. But what about the First Family’s coffee habits?

My mug is empty.

Security concerns are initially cited. Then e-mails go unreturned. Caffeine consumption in the West Wing has, apparently, become a state secret.

For an administration that loves to talk about the importance of local food, especially when it comes from the celebrated White House vegetable garden, it turns out that the Obama White House makes it nearly impossible to find the source of its coffee and how it is prepared...

Barack and Michelle are apparently rebelling against the sacred bean, the mainstream of many Americans, and all around Patriotism. Even Michelle refuses to break under interrogation.

Rumor has it that Obama drinks tea, which should have endeared him the GOPTeas. Another FAIL!

No one will vote for Obama in 2016 and my 'Obama Until Kingdom Come' posters will be irrelevant. He claims he won't run, not even if drafted, but I never believed him! Now that CoffeeGate is upon us, my heart is broken.

More on the next scandal:


Here's another picture* of Obama, looking very suspicious, I might add:

The White House refuses to say what coffee is served at the residence. Above, a picture of President Obama drinking a hot drink in April 2008.

...The White House has also purchased from Kona Rainforest Farm, a small, four employee Hawaiian coffee farm which has sold to the president's residence before.

Their website boasts that they are 'now served at the home of America's First Family - the Obama White House.'

However, the White House has only ordered from the farm four times, and their most recent purchase was for Independence Day in 2013, and only for 50 pounds.

'Initially they were buying pretty frequently. I think with budget cuts, and our coffee’s not cheap,' said Robert Barnes, the owner. 'In recent years it’s been more special events...'

Obviously giving up on the born in Hawaii scam! Kona is my favorite, but there is good Kenyan coffee to be had. And most coffee beans are called Arabica. This is where the RWNJs got their definition of Obama.

More scandalous details:


*Note he is sinister, that is, left-handed. A blow to Righties everywhere! Yes, this could have been better, but I haven't had my morning cup of coffee yet and needed to vent.
