Benjamin Fulford Update May 31/10

The Pentagon and US government have drawn up emergency plans to evacuate much of the population surrounding the Gulf of Mexico in anticipation of toxic rain and severe environmental damage, a military intelligence source says. The extreme environmental destruction and the deliberate failure to put an end to the oil leaks are all part of the dark cabal’s bargaining strategy since all they have left to bargain with now is the threat of mayhem. At the same time, a senior oil industry source has approached the White Dragon Society with an offer of $60 billion a month to be spent on saving the planet so long as the money goes through the Vatican, the BIS and the Federal Reserve Board.

The moves by the Feds, the BIS, the Vatican and the oil people are a clear sign they are at last recognizing the handwriting on the wall. The situation is not looking very good for them at all right now.

First of all, the attack on the Euro is moving ahead via the weakest dominoes. After Greece, the next targets of speculative attack will be Spain (already happening), Italy and the five Baltic states, according to a senior member of the Rothschild family. After that, the next phase of the attack will proceed against France, then England and finally the United States. The result will eventually be revolution followed by banksters hanging from lampposts as famously predicted by George Bush Senior.

The attempt by Germany to ban naked short selling is healthy in the sense that naked short selling creates volatility but ultimately, it is just a case of shooting the messenger. The underlying reality cannot be regulated away. The fact of the matter is the Mediterranean, British and US people have been living beyond their means for a very long time and their international credit has dried up. Each of these regions either needs to issue a new, devalued currency or else watch their economies implode until wages fall to developing country levels. A debt write-off is also definitely a must for all of these regions because the alternative is the politically impossible scenario of hundreds of years of debt slavery for these peoples. The debt will be paid in gold and the White Dragon Society has enough for all.

In the US, meanwhile, white hats in the Pentagon are steadily making their preparations for a major move against the Washington D.C. Corporation. The mobilization of militias and military outfits around the country are not directed against the American people, Pentagon sources say. Although as little as a year ago about half the US military establishment was ready to support the Federal Reserve Board crime syndicate, that is no longer the case. The Pentagon has now told Washington they will not move against the US people. Furthermore, if necessary, the Chinese and the Russians will help the American patriotic forces defend themselves against Blackwater (Xe) S.S. stormtroopers should things come to a head.

The last source of Federal Reserve Board strength would seem to be their corporate propaganda media but that is just a paper tiger. All the Pentagon would need to do is occupy the main networks and newspapers and force them to do what they have long since stopped doing: tell the truth.

The Cabal that has secretly ruled the West for thousands of years is running out of time to reach a deal. What used to be a unified monolith is now splintering into increasingly small fragments.

As we have already seen England has split from the US, the Mediterranean countries are splitting from Northern Europe and the US is internally split too.

Furthermore, the Vatican is now split into three groups that are engaged in a vigorous internal struggle: Opus Dei, the Jesuits and the Vatican itself. Ultimately, the Pope will have to resign and the Vatican will have to reveal its secrets before this dispute can be settled by God-fearing average Catholics.

The situation in Israel is also coming to a head. The flotilla that is attempting to break the blockade of Gaza is backed by Turkey.

Turkey, once a strong ally of Israel, is now spearheading an Islamic movement against the Zionist state. This completely alters the balance of power in the region and makes Israel look increasingly like the Crusader state at the time of Saladin. Take a look at the amount of soldiers (including reserves) available to each side should things come to a head:

Israel 629,000

Turkey 1,075,000

Syria 536,000

Iran 3,675,000

Lebanon 85,000

Egypt 1,109,000

While it may seem premature to include Egypt in this list since they formally signed a peace treaty with Israel, Egypt is definitely headed for regime change. It should also be noted Turkey has a state-of-the-art NATO-equipped military Nor is the United States likely to intervene militarily on behalf of Israel given the current political situation in the US these days.

It should be noted that the offer of $60 billion a month to the White Dragon Society was made contingent on coming up with some sort of settlement of ancient disputes between the three main peoples of the book: the Jew/Protestants, the Vatican and the Muslims.

The solution is really quite simple to reach now that the nightmarish Satanic plan to enslave humanity is coming to an end: live and let live. If you look at the situation objectively you will see there is no reason for conflict between these groups, all the fighting and strife between them has been artificially engineered.

As usual, there is a lot we are being asked not to report at present in order to prevent ongoing, sensitive negotiations and preparations from being derailed. We do not expect any public announcements yet but we can say that this week’s Bilderberg meeting in Spain is being countered by a secret, extremely powerful non-Bilderberg meeting elsewhere. The secrecy is only temporary and is meant to protect people’s lives until the situation is ready for the long-awaited public announcements. Until that happens, hope for the best and prepare for the worst.

Dear Family,

As we have entered the Full Moon of Taurus leading us into May, this time is esoterically called the “Festival of Wesak” which is the annual planetary cycle that transmits the “Ray Aspect of Illumination” to those whom are receptive to receive impulses from their Higher Self. This Ray Aspect of Illumination is another way to describe the higher intelligence field access we are able to receive when being connected into another dimensional frequency. Higher dimensions hold higher energetic frequencies which emits an “intelligence field”. There are massive multiple layers of “intelligence fields” and humans have the consciousness power (when disciplined or trained to develop these abilities) to build discernment from where the intelligence is being sourced from.


To learn this discernment as a practice is the
“Spiritual Initiation” or Integrated Ascension process which has been taught by many of the esoteric Mystery School lineages. Both dark and light intentions can influence the quality of the material, and even distort it from both human ego misuse and Negative E.T. manipulation. The eventual goal in all cases is “polarity integration” which is about synthesizing lower density patterns into higher frequencies. This is how we evolve to reach the level of energetic intelligence that exists as pure Unity consciousness. Spiritual Initiation through polarity integration IS a part of the Mechanics of Universal Creation and inherent in the physics governing the laws of evolutionary direction that increases and develop consciousness expansion into Unity Intelligence. (Unity Intelligence is synonymous to the Cosmic Christ Principle)

As we evolve into higher initiations of embodiment we are then increasingly able to become more “Transparent” to the external environmental energies. Learning how to become more transparent to the external pressures and energies is a necessary skill at this time. This starts with total neutrality (non judgment) applied to all that is being observed externally. A good practice now is to strengthen and develop your witness consciousness (now moment) to include neutral association to all events, circumstances and situations as best as you are capable. This means you will be less likely to interfere or become entangled with external events that may drain your energy. Protecting your energy field by becoming self contained and inner directed is important at this time. (The 12D shield practice is a primer to this process of learning energetic self containment)

During this time, humanity has an increased access (similar to a broadcast channel) to higher intelligence fields where our Higher Self has a “station of identity” existing at that plane. These current Stellar Alignments greatly assist us in accessing the clarity of communicating with our Higher Aspect or Inner Christ Self. Many of us are being Spiritually Initiated now. (Read more about Wesak here: Wesak Festival)

souledout.org/wesak/wesakfestival03/wesakfestoverview.html

Blue Lotus Heart Initiate

We have entered the Realms of Spiritual Initiation that activate the next sequence of spiritual bodies and lead humanity into another planetary “Ascension Wave” cycle. This year’s Planetary Ascension Wave is related to the Indigo Crystal Star which when ignited, reconfigures our 6th Chakra, 6th AxiAtonal Line, 6th DNA imprint and its processes that control our” third eye” and higher brain function. It also controls the spin speed of the Indigo dimensional frequencies and how they modulate into our 6th layer lightbody that reconnect the physical body to its soul matrix energies.(the Soul Matrix bodies are 4D-5D-6D) This Indigo Crystal Star is a function of our lightbody and it exists at the Higher Heart Center in the Thymus Gland chakra. This activation deepens the Heart Chakra into fuller expansion as it transforms the heart channels from a 4D green energy layer and into running Aqua to Blue Frequencies. This process is the esoterically named “Blue Lotus Flower” of the Activated Lotus Crystal Heart Lightbody, as described by the Egyptian and Hindu Spiritual Initiation cultures. The reference to the Blue Lotus Flower in Egyptian temple hieroglyphs was referring to the spiritually initiated Human Heart Chakra as a Living Eternal God Crystal Matrix. Many temple carvings depict Egyptians holding a Blue Lotus Flower in their hand. From the Guardian perspective, this symbol was not originally intended to represent the actual “blue flower” being used as a hallucinogen as suggested by some Egyptologists. The sacred oil from the lotus flower was used in high priestess ritual and massaged on the Heart Chakra to represent the initiate’s desire to bloom the “Lotus” residing within the Crystal Heart Matrix. Once the Blue Lotus ignited the Initiate would become eternally connected through the Living Breath of God Source.

January’s News mentions that this is The Year of the Indigo which correlates to the planet’s 6th Dimensional Indigo wave activation and our Blue Ray Star Families returning to the planet this year. This is a specific Guardian Consciousness Planetary Grid Rehabilitation Project that is underway ongoing to support the planet’s awakening Indigo population.

Buried Pressures Erupting

As this is a planetary frequency event, it means that the blockages that exist in the Earth grid accumulate pressure and energetically erupt to shift movement. When new frequency exposures transmit into our planetary field it has to shift its ratio of particle spin to accommodate the changing electromagnetic energies. (The Guardians have described we are merging particle and anti-particle fields and as these particles merge, they create a third particle field which is neutral.) These particles merging also change the electron and proton balance which changes the magnetic field and the “global brain” of our planet. This event collapses timelines (dissolve membranes between dimensional veils) that allow us to visually see or have conscious awareness to events, circumstances or energies we never had a previous awareness of. Simultaneously how these new energies assimilate within our own spiritual and physical body is being revealed to us in personal ways. This has a high impact to influence changes in our personal biorythym, metabolic system, neurochemistry and our eating and sleeping patterns.

It also means that a huge population of Indigo children will also experience these energies as a “pressurized” type of acceleration this year and ongoing.( In all likelihood, the sensory and advanced abilities of a 6th DNA imprinted Indigo that have been previously dormant or latent may begin to activate.) As we are being reconnected again to these frequencies, we begin to remember what was disconnected from us in the past at the cellular memory level. When we feel “cellular memory” it is a recording of a past historical event that creates an influence on the current level of consciousness we experience as our physical self. Yet, these are collective memories of humanity that are surfacing now. These are memories and in many cases trauma, that have been deeply buried in our group unconscious mind and our physical body. Like an accumulated pressure building momentum within an erupting volcano, these deeply buried energies must find a way to release.

We will feel the impact of this event through the lens of which we are more primarily focused within our bodies. Some of us are more orientated to be focused on one layer or more of our four body system: the physical, emotional, mental or spiritual bodies. One or more layers of your body may be feeling the intensity of what is happening now on our planet. As an example, if you process energies mostly at “physical” levels, you probably have been dealing with a lot of mucous congestion, sinus and breathing issues, head and body aches, skin eruptions and viral type symptoms. If you process primarily “emotionally” you may be dealing with anger, sadness, anxiety and behavioral addictions. If you process “mentally” you may be dealing with intruding or possessing thought forms and strange images or dream like visions. If you process spiritually you may be sensing neurological sensations, flashes of color or geometries, and a sensation of energetic compression and expansion happening at the same time in your awareness. And then there are those aspiring Indigos that may be experiencing every layer transmuting as in a process of intense spiritual transformation!

Race Memory Returning

The impact of these reconnecting frequencies is returning lost or previously erased memories of our planetary history to be reclaimed. Since our Species Race Memory is being restored (in sequenced portions) it allows an access to these lost histories in the planetary consciousness field at this time. Many of us are beginning to feel or experience these memories and may not have been having an easy time with these energies.

Most of the Guardian’s facilitation work is about opening the idea to humanity the context that “planetary” energy blockages ultimately become (and are part and parcel of) individual body energy blockages. There is a direct interface link between our individual body, collective human body and the planetary body. No energetic separation exists, only veils that have been simultaneously lifting as we are introduced to higher vibrating dimensions of frequency that open our bodies to become more embodied as our Higher God Self. As we go through Ascension and spiritual initiation our personal bodies become highly sensitized to the planetary shifting. Where we once had no memory or awareness that our body was holding extensive layers of planetary blockages (such as collective human pain or distortions) many of us are not able to fully heal ourselves until we address the “collective” pain issues. The most important way to do this is to find neutrality and de-personalize yourself from being the experience by becoming the “observer”. The more you can hold the “observer” the easier you can shift density patterns into higher patterns of frequency vibration.

One demographic area of the Earth where the Species Race Memory is reconnecting is within the dimensional gateways located in Egypt. Giza, Egypt is the Heart Chakra of our planet and the opening gateway to the Astral Plane. This area of the planet is undergoing many frequency changes that are igniting previously dormant portals. There is a tremendous amount of information returning to the planet in regard to humanities ET related histories. We will start to witness and observe things (such as artifacts) being discovered or revealed to the masses. Some of these artifacts are being hidden or diverted as they clearly impact world religious dogma and the current socially accepted belief systems about humanities origins. The pyramids, which have long been thought of as ancient Egyptian burial chambers are actually designed as “energy” transmitting devices. The Ancient Astronauts (E.T’s) that came to the planet clearly understood that by putting pyramidal structures on top of major planetary vortexes that it had the power to support energetic balance, health and a higher consciousness for the people of the earth. What better vortex to place a series of energy amplification devices than on top of the Heart Chakra of the planet which is located in Egypt? Possibly, our ET ancestors were attempting to help us through a very dark age by amplifying cosmic energies to be received through these pyramids in order to support balancing the planetary body.

We are about to have these energy devices “turned on” of which we have not experienced for the last 5,000 years. June solstice appears to be a timeline that begins transmission of ancient coding and Mother Arc frequencies (The 13th Pillar described last month) throughout more of the planet’s main vortices. This appears to be the beginning of the major restoration of the God Female Balance “energetically” returning to the Earth Body.

Balancing through Cellular Remembrance

When we can comprehend or have a context as to what is happening with us (or our bodies) in most cases the energetic resistance stemming from confusion is released and much relief is experienced by the person on all levels. It has been continually observed that when any level of the four body system is experiencing an unconscious block (such as pain, an implant or ascension symptom) when the mind can participate with its clearing by having a context for what is happening, the block shifts and unravels itself, releasing its “grip” in that portion of the bodies cellular memory. We continually observe blockages being released from layers of the body when an individual reads and participates with this material, as well as releases from the group bodies that participate with this newsletter. If you so feel guided it is suggested to hold that intention before reading each newsletter, that you are willing to go beyond fear and release any obsolete pattern or cellular memory that obstructs your highest expression of Love.

Releasing blockages stemming from cellular memory trauma buried in the bodies is one purpose and mission of the Guardian Consciousness “body of work”. The more we can resonate with our Inner Source (Truth), its vibration sets us free and liberates us from fear. At this time humanity is returning back to Inner Sourcing through the process of Cellular Remembrance.

We are able to regain our consciousness harmony and physical energetic balance by neutrally observing the embedded memories and their “timelines” releasing. The act of observing them from your Higher God Self is the consciousness power to “neutrally” release them.

Reptilian Invasion Timelines

One particular planetary cellular memory unraveling now and surfacing in the mass consciousness fields involves the planetary 5 D Stargate and their 5D timelines related to Reptilian Invasion memories. Cellular memory imbeds in the planetary consciousness field are akin to a timeline of recorded history. Absolutely everything that has ever transpired in the history of consciousness is recorded as cellular memory imbeds in the planetary body. Most of these historical memories were erased or obscured by the Reptilians upon Invasion. The Starseed (gridworker) incarnated here with this mission to rehabilitate the grids can energetically “read” the cellular memory imbeds. Its data stream is recovered similarly as how a market cashier will use a “bar code” reader to scan an item code from the grocery inventory list. It is accessed from the direct cognition of reading energy signatures and this function is a part of the Oversoul and higher lightbody matrix. (The Oversoul Matrix is the 7D-8D-9D Bodies) More Starseeds are awakening to “read” these “timelines” however most of us do not realize what we are accessing and shut it down from fear. So many of us are indoctrinated into the 3D mind control system which limits our ability to allow ourselves to open our mind and actually LOOK at what we are seeing or sensing. Becoming neutral is highly effective as if you do not assign a value to what you are witnessing it allows attunement to a deeper connection of accessing energy or “memory’.

Reptilian Invasion memories are a part of humanities unconscious “Seed Fear” which is translated here and exploited for mass control in the 3D physical world as “Terrorism. From the Guardian Perspective, there is an orchestrated rehabilitation program being applied to these areas of the earth grid from severe damage. As the Planetary Stargate 5th dimensional frequencies have reached certain levels of access from Guardian grid repair, (last year’s project was the start of 5D portal and false umbilicus repair work) we are then able to access cellular memory imbeds that were hidden in those areas of the planet’s field. That means the memory of what transpired or was holographically inserted into the time matrix as a false memory can be “read”.

What was artificially holographically inserted by the Reptilian races in the Planetary 5th dimensional Stargate holds timeline memories that changed our bodies and subsequently damaged our genetic code. This is an event that changed the direction of the human race, began the introduction of organized religion as a political control machine, and disconnected us entirely from the “mother” life force of our planet approximately 5,000 years ago. This timeline event is similar to understanding that it was the beginning of humanities group Inner Christ “Crucifixion”. We became blocked from connecting to the frequency of our God Parent, and our subsequent pain was immense.

Each level of our Internal Planetary Stargate system has a white hole opening and a black hole counterpart that functions similar to the phenomena science calls a wormhole. (These Internal Stargates have been sealed and closed off by Guardians since 2005 to circumvent various possible Controller Enslavement Agendas) The Original Inner Templar 5D Stargate white hole opening (particle time fields) is in Machu Picchu and its black hole counterpart (anti-particle time fields) is in Vatican City, Rome, Italy. Vatican City is a hot spot at this time as it is a main source of this Reptilian Invasion memory revealing and its subsequent impact to influence a false “Crucifixion “story upon humanity. This is the timeline that is surfacing now and its impact may be felt intensely. This will begin to change the Roman Catholic Church’s governing organization and more of what has been hidden in the Vatican vaults will become public knowledge.

The impact of this “invasion” deteriorated the function of our human bodies immunity, glandular and organ system function and blocked the Mother God Aspect from connecting into the Earth Core. It was the groundwork being laid into the planet by the Controllers that are referred to as the “Inner Christ” Crucifixion Implants. Our planet and the human race incarnated upon it, were now fully stapled to the earth grid (via Crucifixion Implants on our 7D AxiAtonal Line) unable to achieve organic ascension and liberation from reincarnation. We could not feel our God Source connection any longer, nor our connection to our Mother and female principles of balance. We now begin to change this “crucifixion” event by becoming aware that it happened so we can repair and heal it. This requires that Vatican City reveal to us what has been hidden and become acountable for its actions. This is starting to unravel the healing process and will be a huge Guardian grid repair project in 2011-2012.

The pain being felt from this “crucifixion” memory surfacing is highly charged in the mass consciousness fields at this time. Most people feel the intensity of what is transpiring however have no context to understand what they are actually feeling and where it is sourcing from. This confusion exacerbates lower impulses in behavior as people act out these energies without any sense of self control. More of the phenomena of “thought-form possession” are happening in the masses of unconscious people now.

It is important at this time to learn how to become Transparent to these external energies. Do not attach or make judgment on any external behavior, only observe and hold peace inside yourself. We are traversing some major phases of growth which require we witness what has happened to our race so that we can become aware and choose to heal and change. The change starts from within us.

We are in this together and until next….Stay in the luminosity of your Avatar Heart Path! Be Gentle with your hearts and each other.

Love, Lisa

Update by Sheldan Nidle for the Spiritual Hierarchy and the Galactic Federation

Posted by Admin on June 2, 2010

3 Manik, 10 Pax, 5 Caban


Selamat Balik! We return on this day to talk with you about a number of events that are close to happening. Every day for years, you have waited for the prosperity funds to finally arrive at your door. Every day, you have been disappointed when this did not occur. Our Earth allies have worked hard to make this manifest for you, and as we watched this situation, we noticed three predominant obstructive factors: first, the institutions that control and heartlessly manipulate your world were operating at full throttle; this is no longer the case: your governmental, political, and economic spheres are in disarray! Second, your various military and international enforcement institutions had not as yet made up their minds about the best direction for your world to take. These organizations have since made this decision and now whole-heartedly support change. Third, the underlying attitude of the world’s people was largely indifferent to any drastic altering of their realty, and this too has now changed: the level of anger at the state of global affairs and of longing for a new direction has reached critical mass.

These pivotal collective decisions, coupled with the great longing of the world’s people, are at last in alignment with the grand transformations espoused by our Earth allies, and so Heaven has acceded to our demands for a deeper involvement in your affairs. Until now, we had merely cajoled the dark cabalists and had not firmly convinced them of the urgent need for immediate surrender. They took advantage of our indirect stance to intensify the disaster growing in the Gulf of Mexico and had asked their minions to prepare a full doomsday scenario. We watch this in horror and are most relieved by the recent decrees from Heaven. Our task is to employ our personnel and ships in such a way as to force an end to this heinous activity. To this end we have had several sincere talks with Earth’s Spiritual Hierarchy in order to get the go-ahead for our diverse strategies. These are designed to push the dark out of the way and ensure the swift rise of our Earth allies. Accordingly, we have asked that all the teams, waiting in the wings to be the transitional regimes around the world, now make themselves known to us.

In this regard, we have provided these critical personnel with a series of lectures, followed by an open session of questions and answers concerning our mission to bring full consciousness back to this reality. During our recent set of talks with Earth’s Spiritual Hierarchy, it was made crystal clear that the present level of earth-changes activities such as earthquakes and volcanism was to continue on an ascending scale over the coming months. We are subject to a timeframe which behooves us to ensure that the requisite changes to your world happen now and not later. We have noticed the massive upwelling of magma throughout your planet. Tectonic-plate action is likewise increasing, and it appears certain that what we were told to expect is currently happening. Consequently, we have had many serious meetings with those who are to be in charge of the military and civilian government ministries in the transitional regimes. In a nutshell, we have initiated a plan whose purpose is to divest the dark cabalists of their present seats of power.

At the same time, we are to ensure that the prosperity programs, which are the final link to this transition, are delivered to their recipients. The purpose of this change is to replace your present illegal regimes with properly established de jure governments. Without Disclosure, our tasks are harder to perform successfully. Nonetheless, these divinely ordained activities must take place in the proper and agreed-upon ways, and to this end, our diplomatic and liaison forces are carrying out our plans according to the agreed legitimate format. We are busy making sure that the old regimes resign at the time jointly agreed to. To date, all is well. The dark understands what we need, and it is grudgingly complying. For our part, we are monitoring the activities of each group of dark minions as we fully expect some form of shenanigans. The secret-government elements behind some of your major governments have indeed put obstacles in our path, and we have responded by limiting the effects of these dirty deeds.

Mother Earth wants you to know that the present pace of earth changes is to accelerate, making the disaster in the Gulf even more of a threat. This situation is an incentive for all to do their utmost to remove the dark from power. It is no longer an option for these unrelenting ones to remain at the helm, and it is time that they meet with their just deserts. Your global societies need fundamental economic reforms backed by people-oriented government. Our direct intervention is also necessary because these regimes need considerable reliable oversight. Your world, for far too long, has looked to the dark, devious, and controlling ways of the Anunnaki’s minions for guidance, which is why some degree of initial mentoring is indicated. Also required is close interaction by each of you with your respective regimes. A cornerstone of galactic society is government that is fully responsive to an aware, informed, and dedicated body politic.

The old ways are to be transformed by an abundant and fearless populace. You need to regard yourselves as the “owners” of your local and national governments. Those put into power, even in the most propitious circumstances, can falter and require the people’s due diligence. We are here to be your mentors; to transform your consciousness; and to reconnect you fully with the Divine. As this happens, you will acquire new and inspiring areas of responsibility. This means you are to step outside your present “box,” thereby gaining access to a more responsive and knowledgeable you, and we will encourage you every step of the way. Higher consciousness naturally brings with it more wisdom, more connection with the Divine, and more sacred responsibility, building to the moment when you actually achieve full consciousness.

Our task is clearly defined. What you have made of yourselves is no longer sufficient, which is why Heaven embarked on her program of moving you up to full consciousness. This jeopardized everything in your environment as this reality can no longer sustain itself. The chain of life that supports you is badly crippled and cannot be repaired. This pushes you to the next level, and indeed it is only higher-level technologies run by higher-conscious Beings that can restore viability to your reality. This new, transformed reality is to be home to fully conscious Beings; and these Beings are of course to be you. They will require mentors only in the beginning; then their own wisdom can propel them toward their divine destiny. This destiny includes the forging of a new star-nation and becoming an important part of the Galactic Federation of Light.

Your world is to see this happen now! We are moving forward with our pieces of the puzzle and are ready to make it all happen. The dark sees its nemesis looming and knows its time has come! The reins of power are to pass to our Earth allies, and the first items on their agenda are the new economic-financial realities and a reversal of the catastrophe forming in the Gulf. This leads to the end of the UFO cover-up, which permits us to intervene in a more public way. Central to this is the open acknowledgment of the partnership between the Earth allies, the people of Earth, and the first contact team. This partnership is to clean up your planet, start you on the road to full consciousness, and allow you to become accepted citizens of the Milky Way Galaxy.

Today, we brought you up to date regarding what is happening on your world. Your reality is more than ready to be transformed by Heaven, by you, and by us, and all in a very short period of time. We look forward to the grand reunion and to helping you complete your transformation into fully conscious Beings. Know, dear Ones, in your Heart of Hearts that the countless Supply and never-ending Prosperity of Heaven are indeed Yours! So Be It! Selamat Gajun! Selamat Ja! (Sirian for Be One! and Be in Joy!)

Hilarion’s Weekly Message thru Marlene Swetlishoff

Hilarion’s Weekly Message 

May 30 – June 5, 2010

Beloved Lightworkers,

Get ready for a great increase in the downpouring energies. The next month will be filled with many changes taking place within you as you continually receive these powerful attunements and as this occurs, many wonderful events will take place. It will first take place in the situations that have been taking your focus and attention during the previous months and all of a sudden, it will be as though none of it happened at all. It will leave many of you confused about what just occurred. Was what you were experiencing real or a figment of your imagination? Life will take on a surreal feeling and you will be questioning yourselves constantly. Our advice is to become still and get out into nature and just be. Allow yourself to reconnect within and breathe, and get back to the basics of who you are, at your core, the wonderful Being of Light and Love who has always cared about `the other’ more than about yourself.

You have been carrying a heavy load, for you have taken up some of the load of the mass consciousness grid and you have each been playing out these energies in your own lives. Many strange and puzzling things have been taking place and the more you have tried to solve the puzzle of it, the more confused things have become. The secret here is to let go of it all and take a rest from everything. If it is at all possible, find a quiet and tranquil place where you can be at peace and observe what is around you, the birds, insects, flowers and trees, the clouds and their formations, the sun shining upon your skin or the rain dropping from the sky onto your face. Attune to these simple events and allow yourself to be in observation and detachment mode.

Your calmness and equilibrium is much needed at this time. Bring out your sense of humor and laugh often at any amusing thoughts that come to you. We from the Higher realms are endeavoring to bring to you feelings of joy and lightness in order to help you move beyond the situations that you find yourselves in and hopefully, break free of them. Many veils you have lived under are now being removed and your life will suddenly make more sense than ever before. You will start to remember your Higher purpose here on Earth and the role each of you have chosen to play in the Divine Plan and all the puzzle pieces will begin to come together. It is a playing out of all that is in the process of completion and you will soon find yourselves in a much happier and more joyful place. All that went before will seem to have been just a dream and as with all dreams, will fade from your memories.

We thank each of you for being willing to experience these emotions and situations in order to come to a place of balance. This voluntary service has enabled the Light quotient upon the Earth to rise to a higher level. It now remains for you to maintain this momentum and keeping it firmly anchored into the Earth’s core. Most of you now maintain your central core and meet all new experiences and changes with the greatest balance and equilibrium. We say `well done’ and `thank you’ from all upon the Higher planes. Through all your feelings of pain, suffering and confusion, you maintained the concept of the Higher purpose being at work within your lives and now, the time has come to release and let go. Laughter and light heartedness will make this process easier. Everyday, find things and situations to laugh about. Observe yourself laughing, observe your feelings and your reactions and responses and learn the difference between these. Know that at your central core, you are united with the greater purpose of Life, which is to go forth and experience all that can be experienced in order to discern all that the situations have offered you as the gifts of learning and growth.

Stay as relaxed as you possibly can in these times and just send the energies of the Love that you are to everyone and everything around you. Love will overcome all that has been presented to you. Search deep within yourselves and realize that this is your bottom line. Love conquers all else. Love is the most powerful force in the Universe. With Love all things are possible. With Love, the burdens and cares are lifted and the new day and the new way beckons onward. Many golden opportunities will present themselves to you and you will be choosing what role to step into. These times are exciting and exhilarating and ready to be explored and experienced to the fullest. Stay centered at all times. You are each loved and adored beyond measure. All will make sense as you continue this journey.

Oily Politics Led to Environmental Disaster

Posted by Admin on June 2, 2010

by: Walter Brasch, t r u t h o u t | Op-Ed

Gov. Bobby Jindal (R-La.) had a good idea to slow or stop the Gulf Coast oil spill from reaching shore. Build artificial barrier islands, he told the federal government. He wanted the Army Corps of Engineers to dredge the Gulf of Mexico and the Mississippi River to strengthen and connect the existing barrier islands. The $350 million plan, which Jindal demanded be paid for by BP Oil, would establish an 80–85 mile barrier, about 200 feet wide and six feet high. The barriers would also protect the marshlands, the federal wildlife preserves, and a fragile ecosystem.

When the federal government didn’t respond, he threatened to have Louisiana do the job itself, and had his attorney general notify the Corps of Engineers that under the 10th Amendment the state had a right to protect itself during an emergency. After two weeks of discussion and analysis by the Corps, President Obama ordered the first of six islands to be built. Coast Guard Commandant Thad Allen, the on-scene commander, said the first island would be a prototype; if it worked, five more would be built. Jindal wants 24 islands, but believes the first six are a good start.

The oil spill, more than 200,000 gallons a day and entering its sixth week, is now the size of Delaware and Maryland combined. Eleven workers are dead, 17 are injured, from the explosion of BP’s Deep Water Horizon, April 20. Several hundred thousand marine mammals, birds, fish, and reptiles have been killed by the spill. Even those oil-soaked birds and mammals that hundreds of volunteers have helped clean may be only days from death. About 34,000 Brown Pelicans, recently taken off the endangered species list, and seagulls continue to dive through the oil-soaked ocean to get to the food supply.

Thousands of migratory birds, during a two to three week rest in the Gulf Coast barrier islands on their flight north from South America, are dying. Sea Turtles, manatees, and dolphins still need to come up through the oil slick for air; eye irritations are the least of the problems they encounter. For about 5,000 dolphins, this is also their birthing season; mothers who survive may have oil on their teats; their calves may die from lack of nutrition or from ingesting the oil. The affected areas of the Gulf are also the spawning grounds for tuna, marlin, and swordfish. Even the fish, which may survive by staying below the spill, are affected by the oil. The coral reefs are being destroyed by the oil and what is needed to be done to break up that oil. More than 700,000 gallons of chemical dispersants, used to help break up the oil, add to the destruction of the balance of nature. Its toxicity may affect sea life for at least a decade.

The $2.5 billion fishing industry, a major part of the life of the Gulf, has been devastated. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration has closed about 46,000 square miles of fishing fields, about one-fourth of all fishing waters in the Gulf. The lucrative shrimp, oyster, and clam industries are not only closed, but the effects will last for more than one season. Boat captains and their crews are idle. Tourism at the beginning of what is normally a lucrative summer season is almost non-existent.

Had the barrier islands been in place several years ago, the effects of the spill would have been significantly less. Erosion, combined with deep water oil drilling long before the Horizon explosion, had destroyed natural barrier islands and wetlands. A $14 billion proposal by the Corps of Engineers, supported by Louisiana, environmentalists and the oil industry to restore the area levees, wetlands, and barrier islands was rejected by President George W. Bush. Both he and Vice-President Dick Cheney, former oil company executives, were more concerned about protecting the oil industry than the people who would be affected by Big Oil. Besides, they had a war to wage in Iraq, and $14 billion was too much to spend on domestic protections.

Much of the $100 billion damage from Hurricane Katrina, a Category 3 storm, was not from the wind and rain but from the failure to provide adequate protection.

It is that same protection, those same barrier islands that were destroyed by the oil industry years ago, that would have significantly slowed or stopped the nation’s worst environmental disaster, one caused not by nature but the incompetence of mankind.

“Drill, Baby, Drill” was once an in-our-face slogan of certain politicians and the oil industry that feeds them. It is now but a reminder that when mankind destroys the environment, there will be tragic consequences.

Why Obama Should Put BP Under Temporary Receivership

Posted by Admin on June 2, 2010

by: Robert Reich  |  Robert Reich’s Blog

It’s time for the federal government to put BP under temporary receivership, which gives the government authority to take over BP’s operations in the Gulf of Mexico until the gusher is stopped. This is the only way the public know what’s going on, be confident enough resources are being put to stopping the gusher, ensure BP’s strategy is correct, know the government has enough clout to force BP to use a different one if necessary, and be sure the President is ultimately in charge.

If the government can take over giant global insurer AIG and the auto giant General Motors and replace their CEOs, in order to keep them financially solvent, it should be able to put BP’s north American operations into temporary receivership in order to stop one of the worst environmental disasters in U.S. history.

The Obama administration keeps saying BP is in charge because BP has the equipment and expertise necessary to do what’s necessary. But under temporary receivership, BP would continue to have the equipment and expertise. The only difference: the firm would unambiguously be working in the public’s interest. As it is now, BP continues to be responsible primarily to its shareholders, not to the American public. As a result, the public continues to worry that a private for-profit corporation is responsible for stopping a public tragedy.

Five reasons for taking such action:

1. We are not getting the truth from BP. BP has continuously and dramatically understated size of gusher. In the last few days, BP chief Tony Hayward has tried to refute reports from scientists that vast amounts of oil from the spill are spreading underwater. Hayward says BP’s sampling shows “no evidence” oil is massing and spreading underwater across the Gulf. Yet scientists from the University of South Florida, University of Georgia, University of Southern Mississippi and other institutions say they’ve detected vast amounts of underwater oil, including an area roughly 50 miles from the spill site and as deep as 400 feet. Government must be clearly in charge of getting all the facts, not waiting for what BP decides to disclose and when.

2. We have no way to be sure BP is devoting enough resources to stopping the gusher. BP is now saying it has no immediate way to stop up the well until August, when a new “relief” well will reach the gushing well bore, enabling its engineers to install cement plugs. August? If government were in direct control of BP’s north American assets, it would be able to devote whatever of those assets are necessary to stopping up the well right away.

3. BP’s new strategy for stopping the gusher is highly risky. It wants to sever the leaking pipe cleanly from atop the failed blowout preventer, and then install a new cap so the escaping oil can be pumped up to a ship on the surface. But scientists say that could result in an even bigger volume of oil – as much as 20 percent more — gushing from the well. At least under government receivership, public officials would be directly accountable for weighing the advantages and disadvantages of such a strategy. As of now, company officials are doing the weighing. Which brings us to the fourth argument for temporary receivership.

4. Right now, the U.S. government has no authority to force BP to adopt a different strategy. Saturday, Energy Secretary Steven Chu and his team of scientists essentially halted BP’s attempt to cap the spewing well with a process known as “top kill,” which injected drilling mud and other materials to try to counter the upward pressure of the oil. Apparently the Administration team was worried that the technique would worsen the leak. But under what authority did the Administration act? It has none. Asked Sunday whether U.S. officials told BP to stop the top-kill attempt, Carol Browner, the White House environmental advisor, said, “We told them of our very, very grave concerns” about the danger. Expressing grave concerns is not enough. The President needs legal authority to order BP to protect the United States.

5. The President is not legally in charge. As long as BP is not under the direct control of the government he has no direct line of authority, and responsibility is totally confused. For example, listen for the “we” and “they” pronouns that were used by Carol Browner in response to a question on NBC’s “Meet the Press” Sunday (emphasis added): “We’re now going to move into a situation where they’re going to attempt to control the oil that’s coming out, move it to a vessel, take it onshore ….We always knew that the relief well was the permanent way to close this .… Now we move to the third option, which is to contain it. If [the new cap on the relief well is] a snug fit, then there could be very, very little oil. If they’re not able to get as snug a fit, then there could be more. We’re going to hope for the best and prepare for the worst.” When you get pronoun confusion like this, you can bet on confusion — both inside the Administration and among the public. There is no good reason why “they” are in charge of an operation of which “we” are hoping for the best and preparing for the worst.

The President should temporarily take over BP’s Gulf operations. We have a national emergency on our hands. No president would allow a nuclear reactor owned by a private for-profit company to melt down in the United States while remaining under the direct control of that company. The meltdown in the Gulf is the environmental equivalent.

Israeli Attack on Flotilla Sparks Wave of International Protests

Posted by Admin on June 2, 2010

by: Nora Barrows-Friedman, t r u t h o u t | Report

Rami al-Meghari watched the news unfold from live video feeds monitoring international waters 65km off the coast of the Gaza Strip Monday morning, one of Gaza’s 1.5 million residents anticipating a shipment of wheelchairs, prefabricated homes, crayons, raw construction supplies, dental surgery equipment and reams of paper brought by international humanitarian activists on board a flotilla of boats.

However, the flotilla was intercepted and attacked by Israeli naval commando units, flanked by armed speedboats and helicopters. Soldiers climbed on board the Turkish-owned Mavi Marmara ship and opened fire with live ammunition, killing at least 19 people and wounding 60, according to the latest reports.

A journalist living in Gaza’s Meghazi refugee camp, al-Meghari tells Truthout that the attack was a devastating blow to the Palestinian people in Gaza – who have suffered through a three-year-long blockade as Israel forbids the entry of essential goods and humanitarian supplies, including medicines. He says he was horrified at what took place on the ship. “I am in absolute sorrow for the human loss,” he said.

From the occupied Gaza Strip to the San Francisco Bay Area, global reaction in protest of the Israeli military’s attack on the flotilla has been swift. Outraged by Israel’s attack on the flotilla, and fueled by international news headlines and internet-based information swapping through sites such as Twitter and Facebook, tens of thousands of people across the world have taken to the streets in sustained anger against Israeli policies and the actions of its military toward the humanitarian aid flotilla, while the United Nations and the Turkish government work to impose diplomatic pressure.

Palestinians in the occupied West Bank launched demonstrations against the Israeli military immediately following the attack, but the protests were quickly dispersed and banned by the Palestinian Authority’s security forces. Earlier in the day, Israeli forces shot a young American journalist in the face with a tear gas grenade during a women-led demonstration at the Qalandiya checkpoint between Ramallah and Jerusalem. There were also protests inside the old city in occupied East Jerusalem, while others demonstrated outside Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s house in the Western side of the city.

In the Palestinian city of Umm al-Fahem in northern Israel, Palestinian youth burned tires as Israeli forces attempted to lock down areas of the city. Elsewhere, Israeli and Palestinian protesters descended on the city of Ashdod, where detention camps had been set up by the military to hold those arrested from the flotilla and to where some of the ships on the flotilla were being towed. Protesters in Haifa and other northern Israeli cities also joined the day of action.

People in Egypt and Jordan took part in similar protests as thousands across the region demanded that their governments sever diplomatic and political ties with Israel. Lebanese demonstrators surrounded the UN headquarters in Beirut to condemn Israel’s policies and the violent attack against the flotilla.

In Turkey, thousands of protesters attempted to storm the Israeli embassy in Istanbul right after the killings. Later in the day, Turkish government officials categorized Israel’s attack as “state terrorism” and withdrew its ambassador to Israel as thousands of protesters hit the streets in spontaneous demonstrations demanding justice for those killed in the attack and for Palestinians in Gaza.

In Canada, protests were planned at Israeli embassies and Federal buildings in an “emergency response” to Israel’s aggressions. Seven thousand Swedish demonstrators hit the streets of Stockholm as the Swedish government summoned its Israeli ambassador, condemning the attack as “completely unacceptable” and demanding clarification by the Israeli government. Sweden had several of its citizens on board the ships.

Meanwhile, across the US, pro-justice activists took to the streets in anger and anguish over the killings. Protesters organized in New York City’s Times Square, and in Houston, Cleveland and Seattle, among other cities. University of Chicago freshman Sami Kishawi tells Truthout he joined a massive demonstration in downtown Chicago on Monday afternoon. “I will remain open and willing to participate in dialogue that will reveal to the public the grim reality of the oppression of the Palestinian people,” he said.

In the Bay Area, activists protested outside Israeli embassy in downtown San Francisco. Oakland resident Amir Qureshi told Truthout that he joined the protests in solidarity with the more than 600 activists on the flotilla, and is taking part in other actions as well, including countering some of the Israeli propaganda that’s filtered down inside the US corporate media and calling US representatives in Congress. “Ordinary unarmed global civilians from more than a dozen countries have the courage to take on Israel’s navy in support of the besieged population of Gaza and even give our lives in doing so,” Qureshi said. “Such global solidarity shows the power of people and how it can affect global causes.”

At the same time, condemnation of Israel’s attacks have come from global leaders and icons of civil rights and justice. The Elders – a contingent of past and present world leaders and Nobel laureates, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Nelson Mandela and Jimmy Carter – released a press statement on Monday declaring Israel’s attack as “completely inexcusable.”

“This tragic incident should draw the world’s attention to the terrible suffering of Gaza’s 1.5 million people, half of whom are children under the age of 18,” The Elders’ statement said.

Back in Gaza, locally-based civil society groups sent out a press statement urging the international community to take direct action against Israeli policies. They wrote:

<blockquote>”We Gaza based Palestinian Civil Society Organizations and International activists call on the international community and civil society to pressure their governments and Israel to cease the abductions and killings in Israel’s attacks against the Gaza Freedom Flotilla sailing for Gaza, and begin a global response to hold Israel accountable for the murder of foreign civilians at sea and illegal piracy of civilian vessels carrying humanitarian aid for Gaza.

“We salute the courage of all those who have organized this aid intervention and demand a safe passage through to Gaza for the 750 people of conscience from 40 different countries including 35 international politicians intent on breaking the Israeli-Egyptian blockade. We offer our sincerest condolences to family and friends who have lost loved ones in the attack.

“… The people of Gaza are not dependent people, but self sufficient people doing what they can to retain some dignity in life in the wake of this colossal man-made devastation that deprives so many of a basic start in life or minimal aspirations for the future.

“We, from Gaza, call on you to demonstrate and support the courageous men and women who went on the Flotilla, many now murdered on a humanitarian aid mission. We insist on severance of diplomatic ties with Israel, trials for war crimes and the International protection of the civilians of Gaza. We call on you to join the growing international boycott, divestment and sanction campaign of a country proving again to be so violent and yet so unchallenged. Join the growing critical mass around the world with a commitment to the day when Palestinians are entitled to the same rights as any other people, when the siege is lifted, the occupation is over and the 6 million Palestinian refugees are finally granted justice.”</blockquote>

From Gaza’s Meghazi refugee camp, al-Meghari said of Israel’s actions Monday morning, “violence only breeds violence. And as long as Israeli repression remains in place, Palestinian and pro-justice people around the world will keep up their resistance to that repression.”

Obama Must Ask Netanyahu the Right Questions

Posted by Admin on June 2, 2010

by: Ira Chernus, t r u t h o u t | Op-Ed

Debate rages around the world about the Israeli attack on the humanitarian flotilla headed to Gaza. And it should rage. As Martin Luther King Jr., said, an injustice to one is an injustice to all.

But the debate that matters most – the one that will decide the fate of Palestinians and Israelis alike – is going on inside the Oval Office. If Barack Obama ever decides that the Israelis absolutely must end the occupation of the West Bank and the blockade of Gaza, he’ll demand and get a settlement. Then, both peoples can start living in peace, sooner than most Americans think.

If Obama continues waffling and lets the Israelis maintain the status quo, the conflict will continue, and so will the insecurity it inflicts on both sides.

Obama must understand that perfectly well as he prepares for the delayed visit of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. He must know that he could make the conversation a genuine turning point in US policy, if he wants to. The agenda he sets for that conversation is crucial.

So far, the indications are not promising. In a brief phone talk with Netanyahu just hours after the brutal attack at sea, Obama merely “expressed the importance of learning all the facts and circumstances around this morning’s tragic events as soon as possible,” the White Housesaid.

No, Mr. President, that’s the wrong way to begin. It avoids the real issue – which is just what the Israeli leader wants. He’d love to see the world debating about “all the facts and circumstances.” He’d love to treat the whole terrible disaster at sea as if it were a schoolyard scrap: He hit me first. No, he hit me first. Liar! No, you’re a liar!

Netanyahu and the Israeli government would be happy to drag that argument out because it gives them a double victory. They get to play their favorite role – the victim of threats to their very existence – while distracting the Obama administration from the issue that really matters: the Israeli domination of Gaza and the West Bank.

As long as that domination continues, whether in the form of occupation or blockade, it makes a peace settlement impossible. And that seems to be precisely what the Israeli government aims for – or certainly at least itspowerful right wing, which has Netanyahu in its power. Instead of pursuing peace, Israeli leaders want to pursue a public relations effort at damage control, which comes down to image control.

So, they’re happy to have everyone – especially in the Oval Office – scrutinizing all the video footage and eyewitness accounts to figure out exactly what happened on the Mavi Marmara, minute by minute. The battle of competing images and interpretations could go on for months, even years. As long as the world is distracted by that battle, it will bring any chance of a meaningful peace process to a grinding halt.

The Israelis seem to have had something like that in mind when they set out to stop the Gaza flotilla. Their PR machine was in high gear before the flotilla even set sail. A sympathetic analyst in the conservative Jerusalem Post lamented the failure of the Israeli “diplomatic [read: PR] initiative aimed at explaining to the world why it planned to stop the ships.” As he noted, “stories were leaked by the government to the press about the Turkish Humanitarian Relief Foundation (IHH), the Turkish organization that is behind the flotilla, described as a ‘radical Islamic organization.'”

Within hours of the attack at sea, top Israeli leaders were holding press conferences touting the same unsubstantiated claims that the flotilla was led by violent supporters of international terrorist groups. “Gaza has become a base for terrorists backed by Iran,” said Netanyahu,  suggesting that this unsubstantiated claim somehow justified all that killing; it was simply “self-defense.”

Could it be just coincidence that so many Israeli military personnel, politicians and journalists all repeated the same strange charge that IDF soldiers were victims of “attempted lynching”? (Find it hereherehere,here and here, for example.) It’s more likely that the word “lynch” was cooked up in a PR office, well before the disaster at sea took place (probably by some flake who doesn’t know English well enough to know what the word really means).

The Israelis went to sea not only with 50 Border Guards as well as sailors, but also with embedded Israeli reporters. Prominent journalist Ron Ben-Yishai was apparently given permission for a scoop, the first direct report from scene, predictably sympathetic to the Israelis. (The other reporters’ dispatches were embargoed until they could be vetted by censors.) Back on land in Israel, one blogger reported hours after the event, the talking heads were already focusing only on “the threat to the soldiers lives and the insufficient force that was sent to take control over the Mavi Marmara.” The Israeli media allowed little doubt that their military personnel were the victims, not the perpetrators, of the attack.

Some skilled video producers went along on the mission, too. Shortly after the confrontation, they released slick footage, which does indeed seem to show Israeli troops descending onto the Mavi Marmara and immediately being brutally attacked. No doubt, Netanyahu will bring that film with him to the Oval Office and hope Obama watches every second of it. After all, the president says he wants to know “all the facts and circumstances.”

In the end, though, Netanyahu will tell him that only one fact really matters: Israel was justified because it was acting in self-defense. And, surely, he’ll remind Obama of Israel’s ultimate goal, the one he repeats at every opportunity: preventing another Holocaust. He’ll link the killing on the Mavi Marmara with the specter of the Holocaust, using the whole arsenal of weapons that his skilled PR experts have invented in their fertile imaginations.

He’ll try to keep the conversation focused on the one question that dominates Israeli political life: Weren’t the Israelis merely doing what they had to do to stop the next Holocaust? And, perhaps, even to save Western civilization against “radical Islamic forces,” according to ananalysis published hours after the attack by a prominent Israeli academic in one of his nation’s most popular newspapers. That will be a common response among many Jews, especially in Israel, but some here in the US, too.

Uri Avnery, the grand old man of the Israeli peace movement, summed it up most incisively, as usual, in a recent column titled “Hallelujah, the World is Against Us!” In recent years, he wrote, as Jews have escaped persecution and gained power, “a sense of unease, of disorientation, set in.” Many Jews “felt that something was out of order, that the well-known road signs were not working anymore…. That’s frightening,” and it makes many Jews suspicious. So, “without being conscious of it,” many Jews “do what we can to be hated again, to feel at home, on familiar ground…. We shall not rest until the world is anti-Semitic again, and we know how to behave. As the jolly song goes: ‘The entire world is against us, but what the hell.'”

If Obama, and the world, focus only on “all the facts and circumstances” about who did what during that tragic dawn at sea, it will give Israeli leaders another excuse to lead their people in singing their jolly song, perpetuating their cherished images of victimization. The more criticism they receive, the more most Israelis will be convinced that the worlds really is against them. And the more excuse that will give them to resist serious negotiations for peace.

This is not to deny the need for a full investigation. But it’s vital to put even the worst events in broader perspective. The US government has supported so many evils of the Israeli occupation and blockade because the Israeli PR machine has been so successful. It has managed to get the US mass media, most of the US public and, very possibly, their president to believe that the whole world just might be against Israel, that any Israeli violence might very well be justified self-defense against another Holocaust.

If Obama really wants to be the president who brings peace to the Middle East, he has to take a much broader view. When he asks Netanyahu for “all the facts and circumstances,” he must ask the big, crucial questions: By what right does Israel maintain its blockade of Gaza at all costs, despite all the human suffering it brings? By what right does Israel maintain its occupation of and settlements on the West Bank at all costs? Why does Israel resist the peace settlement that the rest of the world sees as fair and just? Why does Israel persist in such self-defeating policies, keeping its own people as well as its Palestinian neighbors locked in a vicious cycle of insecurity?

Even those who want to focus on the one terrible incident of violence at sea should be asking not who started the fighting, but by what right did the Israeli Navy steam into international waters and unilaterally declare a “naval blockade”? (Strangely, the Israeli PR machine put out video of that declaration, as if it somehow justified all the killing to come.) It’s all part of the same pattern: Israel making unilateral decisions that put intolerable restrictions on Palestinians’ lives.

That’s what the flotilla to Gaza was trying to shine a light on. Now, the light has grown much brighter, though it is encased in the dark shadow of mourning. But if we let it become a narrow pencil light, illuminating only the events of a few tragic hours, we will miss the larger picture at which the Obama administration should be looking: the injustices perpetuated by Israel over many tragic decades.

Those of us who want to see a just peace and a truly independent viable Palestinian state should do whatever we can to break through the fallacious stereotype of Israel as the eternal victim. If that image is discredited – if it no longer frames discussion of the Middle East conflict here in the US – the Obama administration can begin to explore new options for US policy.

Every time we persuade a friend, a neighbor, a relative, a co-worker to see Israel as a dominating power, not an endangered victim, we take a step closer to a just peace in the Middle East. That can be the most fitting memorial for the victims of Israeli bullets, who wanted only to bring humanitarian relief to Gaza.

First Tropical Storm of the Season Kills Scores

Posted by Admin on June 2, 2010

More than 110,000 in Guatemala flee as first storm of season lashes region

May 31, 2010
AP

GUATEMALA CITY – Flooding and landslides from the season’s first tropical storm have killed at least 150 people and left thousands homeless in Central America, officials said Monday.

Dozens are still missing, thousands have lost homes and emergency crews are struggling to reach isolated communities cut off by washed-out roads and collapsed bridges caused by Tropical Storm Agatha.

The sun emerged Monday in hardest-hit Guatemala, where officials reported 123 dead and at least 90 missing. In the department of Chimaltenango — a province west of Guatemala City — landslides buried dozens of rural Indian communities and killed at least 60 people, Gov. Erick de Leon said.

“The department has collapsed,” de Leon said. “There are a lot of dead people. The roads are blocked. The shelters are overflowing. We need water, food, clothes, blankets — but above all, money.”

In the tiny village of Parajbei, a slide smothered three homes and killed 11 people.

“It was raining really hard and there was a huge noise,” said Vicente Azcaj, 56, who ran outside and saw that a hill had crumbled. “Now everyone is afraid that the same will happen to their homes.”

Volunteers from nearby villages worked nonstop since Sunday to recover the bodies in Parajbei, and on Monday they found the last two: brothers, 4 and 8 years old, who were buried under tons of dirt, rocks and trees.

As a thank-you, rescuers got a plate of rice and beans from the mayor of nearby Santa Apolonia.

“It’s a small thing, but it comes from the heart,” Tulio Nunez told them through a translator.

Nunez said he worried about the well-being of survivors in the area because the landslides blocked roads and burst water pipes.

“They don’t have anything to drink,” he said.

In all some 110,000 people were evacuated in Guatemala.

Thousands more have fled their homes in neighboring Honduras, where the death toll rose to 15 even as meteorologists predicted three more days of rain.

Two dams near the capital of Tegucigalpa overflowed into a nearby river, and officials warned people to stay away from swollen waterways.

“The risk is enormous,” Mayor Ricardo Alvarez said.

In El Salvador, at least 179 landslides have been reported and 11,000 people were evacuated. The death toll was nine, President Mauricio Funes said.

About 95% of the country’s roads were affected by landslides, but most remain open, Transportation Minister Gerson Martinez said.

The Lempa River, which flows to the Pacific, topped its banks and flooded at least 20 villages, affecting some 6,000 people, said Jorge Melendez, director of the Civil Protection Agency.

Officials warned that the Acelhuate River, which cuts through San Salvador, was running at dangerously high levels and threatened to spill over into the capital’s streets.

Agatha made landfall near the Guatemala-Mexico border Saturday as a tropical storm with winds up to 45 mph (75 kph). It dissipated the following day over the mountains of western Guatemala.

The rising death toll is reminding nervous residents of Hurricane Mitch, which hovered over Central America for days in 1998, causing flooding and mudslides that killed nearly 11,000 people and left more than 8,000 missing and unaccounted for.

Rescue efforts in Guatemala have been complicated by a volcanic eruption Thursday near the capital that blanketed parts of the area with ash and closed the country’s main airport. Officials are now allowing helicopters and propeller planes to take off, but commercial flights remain grounded.

You have more violent happenings occurring on Earth, and we ask is there ever a day when peace reigns. Man is still strongly influenced by his warrior image that he has carried with him for eons of time. When will you learn that your warlike ways are so futile and gain you no advantage in the long run? If only for karmic reasons each victory you claim carries consequences that travel with you for many lives. History shows that you have assumed might is right, and you use it to trample over those that get in the way of your ambitions. The old ways leave us feeling despair, but there is a rising movement amongst the people that has had enough of them. It arises from the desire for peace amongst all people, and it is growing stronger each day. It cannot continue to be ignored and those in power that do, will find themselves moved out of office. We of the Galactic Federation place our energies with the peacemakers, and it shall be seen to bring success.

Governmental changes are close to taking place, and with them will come those dear souls who have bided their time for such an occasion. You know some of them very well, and they will spearhead the moves towards creating world peace. Differences of opinion will be settled amicably and fairly, and with the return of your rights no one will be wrongly treated or imprisoned. A breath of fresh air will sweep through the halls of power, and those harboring dark intentions will be replaced. When the people realize what is taking place they will stand alongside those souls who have put themselves forward. By so doing there will be an acceptance that the old ways must be relinquished, for peaceful co-operation between all countries. You are one family on Earth, and the time has arrived to put aside all that has created separation between you all.

Nothing can be more pleasing for us than to see Man waking up to his divinity, and realizing his Oneness with all life. When Man wakes up to his full responsibilities to each other, the world will be quickly transformed. The Light will grow even stronger, and the last remnants of plan for your enslavement will disappear for good. Freedom is not something you have fully experienced yet, but it will come before the end time comes upon you. Meantime we ask you to continue strengthening your vision of peace on Earth, and you will help speed up the changes. Remember that you have immense untapped power within, and you can have more influence on the future than you imagine. There is of course a plan that will ensure a victorious ending for the Light, but you can affect it through your collective energy.

In the space of ten years you have had so many experiences, that have sent you through the highs and lows. Yet you have come out of them with a positive vision of your immediate future, and not totally conceded your sovereign rights to the dark Ones. They are to be returned to you along with everything that is necessary to restore you to your rightful position on Earth. You are its guardians and Mother Earth also looks to you to help restore her, to the pristine condition that she once held. There will be changes necessary to remove the blight upon the earth, and much cleansing will take place. When the cycle began millennia of time ago, she was truly a beautiful star within your Solar System, literally a jewel in the firmament. Be assured that regardless of the present state of Earth, she will soon be restored. Her hand will shake the rudder of the ship you call Earth, but you shall be protected as far as possible.

You are experiencing what will be one of the biggest oil spillages in your short history. You wonder why in view of its threat to the Gulf of Mexico we do not step in, but if we did not let you see the result of your actions it would only be repeated again. It seems a strange response to you when you know that we have the technology to deal with it quickly, but it would still be interference without us receiving an official request to do so. Man only seems to learn when matters become serious, and our intervention would not really help the right decisions to be made. We want to se you take responsibility for your wanton damage to Mother Earth, and take steps to ensure it cannot happen again. Yes, you are getting better at clearing up your mess, but far away from the ideal guardianship required.

When you consider your ancient history, you will realize that it is normal for dramatic changes to occur when a solar cycle ends. Both Lemuria and Atlantis disappeared almost without trace, in each case allowing a new civilization to emerge from the remains. This time is similar except that you are not going to experience your demise. Instead you are ascending as your mission will have been fulfilled, and duality can be put behind you. Whatever memories you have of the old Earth, will fade into the background when you awaken to the new one. It will be perfect for new Man, and a most exhilarating and joyous experience where all is built upon the energy of love.

Your remaining time on Earth will bridge the gap between where you are now, and would have been but for the actions of the Illuminate. It is why the changes will go ahead, even though some question why when it is such a short period of time to Ascension. It is because there is a greater chance that more souls will see the Light, when the stress and problems that now exist are removed. When you are relaxed you are more receptive to the incoming energies, and they will expand your consciousness levels. After all, the main objective of all that is happening is to get you prepared for Ascension, and everything will be done to help you. The Creator desires that all souls make their way back to the Source, and creation has set up a path before you that will attract your attention. You cannot really stand still even if you wanted to, and if you stepped backwards the impetus to evolve would take you forward again. All experience is of value, and that is why in duality you will all have had your share of lives in both the dark and Light.

I am SaLuSa from Sirius, and see your beautiful Earth becoming brighter than ever, as the Light is growing with each soul that accepts it. You become the beacons of Light that others are attracted to and follow, and you are leading the way home. Bless you for your dedication to the Love and Light that you all are, and may your path be lead you to the happiness you seek.

Thank you SaLuSa.

Mike Quinsey.

The break point is approaching

Posted by Admin on June 2, 2010

When humanity moves into its natural state of full consciousness in the very near future — as it most definitely will — the joy and exhilaration throughout creation will be beyond stupendous!  We have all been waiting in excited anticipation for this momentous event to burst in on your awareness, as the wonder and magnificence of God’s infinite Love for you overwhelms you with ecstasy.  In the spiritual realms it happened instantly at the moment of apparent separation, and so our joy has never ceased — and you truly exist only in the spiritual realms, along with us, in a state of eternal, infinite joy.

Within the illusory reality, where you appear to have your existence, the experiences you undergo seem to be undeniably real, and to suggest that they are not would lead many to question your sanity.  You have built an imaginary reality that defies imagination!  You were created from Love, in Love, utterly perfect like your heavenly Father.  But, intrigued and excited by the immense power He had given you, you used it to build the illusion and immerse yourselves in it.  Time is part of the illusion, and at first you enjoyed the experiences you were having.  They became more and more real for you until you came to believe that the illusion was Reality, and then you were unable to release yourselves from it.  As you became further ensnared, the experiences you were having became increasingly bizarre and painful, and the power of the illusion became so intense that you invented imaginary gods whom you thought controlled it, and who demanded obeisance, obedience, and sacrifices from you in exchange for the gift of life, with which they had seeemingly provided you.

These gods were easily offended and quick to punish you for misbehavior, using earth-quakes, storms, floods, droughts, plagues, volcanic eruptions, and so on.  Consequently, you started to look for scapegoats among yourselves whom you could blame for offending the gods, and whom you then tortured and executed in expiation for your sins.

It truly is incredible how deeply into the illusion you have allowed yourselves to sink.  God, knowing where this was leading you, sent prophets, guides, teachers, and mystics who had willingly and lovingly volunteered for this perilous assignment to help you release yourselves from your insane non-reality.  And then you sacrificed them as well!

Nevertheless, their divine messages of Love from your infinitely loving Father were heard and preserved.  Realization that your behavior was insane began to become apparent to a small minority of you about five hundred years ago, and they shared that realization with others, so that by the latter part of the twentieth century this understanding had become well established, leading to major behavioral changes in societies across the planet.  However, there are still many who are unwilling to recognize their insanity, and who remain committed to the ways and beliefs that the illusion fosters.

A sea change is underway.  The divine energies engulfing the planet are making it increasingly difficult to perpetuate the old, insane, behavior patterns.  You are all beginning to see that these divine energies require more loving, enlightened forms of social interaction; indeed, you realize that you cannot and will not continue to support, let alone continue to practice, the old, ego-driven ways.  The break point, beyond which the insanity of the illusion can no longer survive, is approaching.  The love that so many of you are expressing and demonstrating is rapidly eroding the last underpinnings of the illusion, and its collapse is imminent.  Hold the light; share the love; and know that all manner of things will be well.

With so very much love, Saul.
