The Greatest Spiritual Event Of Our Time According To Rudolph Steiner


By Paul Levy, Waking Times

Almost a hundred years ago, as if peering into a crystal ball and predicting the future, spiritual teacher and clairvoyant Rudolph Steiner[1] prophesied that the most momentous event of modern times was what he referred to as the incarnation of the etheric[2]Christ. By the “etheric Christ,”[3] Steiner is referring to a modern-day version of Christ’s resurrection body, which can be conceived of as being a creative, holy and whole-making spirit that is inspiring human evolution as it operates upon the body of humanity through the collective unconscious of our species. Involving a radically new understanding of a timeless spiritual event, the etheric Christ, instead of incarnating in full-bodied physical form, is approaching via the realm of spirit—as close as this immaterial spirit can get to the threshold of the third-dimensional physical world without incarnating in materialized form. To quote Steiner, “Christ’s life will be felt in the souls of men more and more as a direct personal experience from the twentieth century onwards.”[4]

A spiritual event of the highest order, Steiner felt that the incarnation of the etheric Christ is “the most sublime human experience possible”[5] and “the greatest turning point in human evolution.”[6] The etheric Christ is a nonlocal, atemporal spirit, existing outside of space and time, that is simultaneously immersed in, infused with—and expressing itself through—events in our world. The etheric Christ reveals itself for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear as it weaves itself, not only through the warp and woof of the flow of events comprising history, but through our souls as well.

To quote Steiner, “in the future we are not to look on the physical plane for the most important events but outside it, just as we shall have to look for Christ on His return as etheric form in the spiritual world.”[7] The most important spiritual events of any age often remain hidden from the eyes of those who are entranced in a materialistic conception of the world. It greatly behooves us to not sleep through, but rather, to consciously bear witness to what has been up until now taking place mostly unconsciously, subtly hidden beneath the mundane consciousness of our species. If this epochal spiritual event, to quote Steiner, “were to pass unnoticed, humanity would forfeit its most important possibility for evolution, thus sinking into darkness and eventual death.”[8] If the deeper spiritual process of the incarnation of the etheric Christ is not understood, this potentially liberating process transforms into its opposite (into the demonic).

Steiner felt that the advent of the etheric Christ—the Parousia (the Second Coming)—was the greatest mystery of our time. He was of the opinion that the incarnation of the etheric Christ was the deeper spiritual process that is in-forming and giving shape to the current multi-faceted crises (and opportunities) that humanity presently faces. This is to say that the seemingly never-ending wars and conflicts that are taking place all over the globe are the shadows cast by spiritual events from a higher-dimension that are animating earthly happenings. One of the main reasons that these multiple crises are so dangerous is because their deeper spiritual source remains unrecognized.

The higher order of light encoded within the etheric Christ is bringing to light the darkness which is seemingly opposed to it, which further helps its light nature to be seen. The true radiance of the light can only be seen and appreciated in contrast to the depth of darkness it illumines. It is as if the revelation of something is through its opposite—just as darkness is known through light, light is known through darkness. A fundamental spiritual principle of creation itself appears to be that when one force—e.g., light—begins to emerge in the universe a counterforce, opposed to the first, arises at that same moment. Just as shadows belong to light, these light and dark powers are interrelated, reciprocally co-arising, inseparably contained within and expressions of a single deeper unifying process. In essence, spirit is incarnating, and it is revealing itself through the very darkness that it is making visible.

Commenting on the other—and less recognized—half of the Second Coming, Steiner chillingly said, “before the Etheric Christ can be properly understood by people, humanity must have passed through the encounter with the Beast.”[9] By “the Beast” he means the apocalyptic beast,[10] the radically evil. The Beast is the guardian of the threshold through which we must pass in order to meet the lighter, celestial and heavenly part of our nature.

As soon as I read Steiner’s prophecy I felt the truth of his words. I recognized how what Steiner was saying mapped onto—and created context for—what is happening in our current world-gone-crazy. I also recognized the truth of what Steiner was saying based on my own inner experience. I have noticed that as I get closer to connecting with the light within myself, the forces of darkness seem to become more active and threatening. It is as if there is something in me—and in everyone, which is to say this situation isn’t personal—that desperately doesn’t want us to recognize and step into our light. This internal process is taking place within the subjectivity of countless individual human psyches, which is then reflexively being collectively acted out—in my language, “dreamed up”—en masse in, as and through the outside world.

In his prophecy, Steiner is pointing out that our encounter with the Beast is initiatory, a portal that—potentially—introduces us to the Christ figure. To quote Steiner, “Through the experience of evil it will be possible for the Christ to appear again.”[11] It is noteworthy that the opposites are appearing together: coinciding with the peak of evil is an inner development which makes it possible for the etheric Christ—who is always present and available[12]—to be seen and felt as a guiding presence that can thereby become progressively more embodied in humans, both individually and collectively as a whole species. In the extreme of one of the opposites is the seed for the birth of the other.[13] Speaking of the power of the etheric Christ, Steiner said, “When this power has permeated the soul, it drives away the soul’s darkness.”[14]

The brightest, most radiant and luminous light simultaneously casts and calls forth the darkest shadows. Through this process of Christ manifesting in the etheric realm, humanity is exposed to evil in a way never before experienced, such that—in potential—we may be able to find the good and the holy in a more real and tangible way than was previously possible. Humanity’s highest virtues and potentialities are activated and called forth when confronted by evil. Evil, according to Steiner, though by definition diametrically opposed to the good, is—paradoxically—a catalyst for bringing the power of goodness to the fore.

It is an archetypal idea that ascending towards the light always necessitates a confrontation with and descent into the darkness. Evil, according to Steiner, co-emerges with the possibility of humanity’s freedom, as if God could not create true freedom for humanity without providing a choice for evil. To quote Steiner, “In order for human beings to attain to full use of their powers of freedom, it is absolutely necessary that they descend to the low levels in their world conception as well as in their life.”[15] From Steiner’s point of view, evil is created by and for freedom, and it is only through the conscious exercise of freedom of choice—which evil itself challenges us to develop—by which it can be overcome.

The mystery of humanity’s higher nature is inseparable from the mystery of evil. It is beyond debate that in our current age we are called to deal with evil—only those who choose to stay asleep, or are overly identified with the light (and hence, project out and dissociate from their own darkness) are blind to this. No realization of the light would ever occur without first getting to know its opposite. Whoever wants to support the sacred must be able to protect it and we can only do so when we know the forces that oppose it.

Evil, however, has an intense desire to remain incognito, below the radar, as its power to wreak havoc is dependent on not being recognized. Paradoxically, it is only by knowing the Beast in ourselves that we become truly human. Recognizing the depth of evil within ourselves helps us to develop the inner capacity to stand free of it, and in so doing, become acquainted with the part of ourselves that is beyond evil’s reach, thus enabling us to establish ourselves as free, sovereign and independent beings. It is to our advantage to know that our worst adversary resides in our own heart, rather than falling for the all-to-common delusion of thinking that our enemy is outside of ourselves.

If we become conscious of the evil within us, in our expansion of consciousness, that evil is promoting our spiritual development. We have then, through our realization, alchemically transmuted evil into a catalyst for our evolution. To quote Steiner, “The task of evil is to promote the ascent of the human being.”[16] The question naturally arises: if, as Steiner professes, freedom is actualized only through the existence of evil, is evil an expression of a higher intelligence, an aspect of the divine plan designed to bring about a higher form of good that couldn’t be actualized without its existence?

The sponsor of humanity’s evolution, the etheric Christ doesn’t give the answer, but inspires the question. Sometimes it’s more important to ask the right question than to find the right answer.

5 reasons Rush’s ‘2112’ is one of the greatest concept albums of all time

Concept albums aren’t for everyone. Even the most dedicated of fans for certain recording artists and bands aren’t always sold on what the storyteller is attempting to get at through their carefully thought out music driven narratives. But for those ambitious listeners out there who have the patience to take in albums like The Who’s Tommy or My Chemical Romance’s The Black Parade, the experience of tuning into a plot-driven record can be just as invigorating and rewarding as making it through one of Kubrick’s films.

Rush’s studio masterpiece that is their 1976 2112 LP always seems to find its way into the discussion when fans are debating the hierarchy of classic rock concept albums. The futuristic storyline brings the fictional city of Megadon to the ears of listeners, mostly thanks to the seven-part, 20-minute opening track which was primarily penned by the band’s drummer, Neil Peart. Both fans and non-fans of the prog-rock band will list out reasons why the album is their favorite, or not quite their cup of tea. Either way, 2112 is wildly adventurous enough to keep the listener entertained throughout the more complex beginning and into its more traditionally structured second half.

Without going too deep down the 2112 wormhole, here are five reasons why the classic album can, and should, be considered one of the greatest concept albums of all time.

1. From start to finish, it checks off all the emotional boxes  

One thing listeners will pick up on while hearing the lengthy opening track is the album’s constantly changing dynamics and levels of power being pumped out by the trio. The robust, distortion-heavy chords of “Overture” and “The Temples of Syrinx” launch the listener into an outer-worldly space and time, only to be brought back to earth in “Discovery/Presentation.” The calmness of Alex Lifeson’s guitar mixed with sounds of flowing water starting around the 6:45 minute-mark offers a calmness to help reintroduce the listener back to reality in quite a lovely way. The contrasts and drastic changes in styles continue throughout the album, thoroughly bouncing off all types of emotional triggers along the way.  

2. 2112 is subtly creepy, in a harmless and melodically fun kind of way

Futuristic storylines based in an alternative reality can be weird, which is more often than not, the entire point. In addition to taking listeners on a quest through Megadon during an intergalactic war, the band use their carefully crafted production tactics and subtle notation in hopes of translating the weirdness of their storyline. One great example is singer Geddy Lee’s very faint backing vocal track which kicks in right at the 2:00 minute mark of “The Twilight Zone.” The whispered lyrics are almost lost in the background unless you really pay attention. If you can hear them though, the panned-left vocals offer a creepy but harmless little ingredient to a compliment the album’s bigger picture.

3. The album has had a huge influence on some of today’s most popular rock artists

Rush may not be the most mainstream-friendly band (which is a good thing), but 2112 has been an evident influence and inspiration for their fellow rock contemporaries. Most rock fans will be quick to remember when Foo Fighters members Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins paid tribute to their heroes with their own spin on the album’s “Overture” at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony a few years ago – in full costume! The imaginary landscape of 2112 certainly opened up doors for future artists in terms of expanding the boundaries of thematic possibilities in commercial rock music, which up until that point, had been more of a bluesy-rock genre still left over from the British invasion the decade prior.

4. 2112 is not entirely based around one concept

The front half of 2112 tells Peart’s fictional story, while the second, more structured side of the LP does not, which makes for an album that touches on the best of both worlds. As mentioned above, concept albums aren’t for everyone, but thankfully the five shorter songs on the back half of 2112 provide the other fans with more of a traditional lineup of hard rock tracks. According to guitarist Alex Lifeson’s liner notes found in 2112’s 40th Anniversary release, tracks two through six are “a little lighter and a little more fun,” which no one is going to complain about after taking quite a trip during the first 20 minutes of the album.

5. Lifeson’s guitar playing throughout the album is nothing short of masterful

Alex Lifeson is sometimes given a little less credit than deserved for his contributions in pushing the boundaries of hard rock guitar. Neil Peart’s drumming and Geddy Lee’s frontman status can sometimes bring them to the front of conversations amongst fans, but Lifeson’s guitar playing on this album can stand just as strongly on its own in an era where guitar heroes were the biggest names in commercial music. From softer Spanish-style acoustic playing, to the mind-blowing eruption of solos heard throughout the album, Lifeson once again pulls out his wonderful bag of tricks and mastered virtuosity that has helped make Rush one of the more powerful and dynamic acts in rock history.

The CDC’s Greatest Cover Up? Information About Lyme Disease They Don’t Want You To Know About



Next Story

Why? Because this clever bacteria has found a way to dumb down the immune system and white blood cells so that it’s not detectable until treatment is initiated. To diagnose Lyme properly you must see a “Lyme Literate MD (LLMD),” however, more and more doctors are turning their backs on patients due to sheer fear of losing their practices! Insurance companies and the CDC will do whatever it Ttakes to stop Chronic Lyme Disease from being diagnosed, treated, or widely recognized as an increasingly common issue.

Lyme is considered by the medical field to “only” transmit by way of a tick infected with bacteria. However, the CDC itself admits it is under-reported, and believes there are between 300,000 to half a million new cases each year. That makes Lyme disease almost twice as common as breast cancer and six times more common than HIV/AIDS. Where are all of these new cases coming from? (It’s interesting to note that since Avril Lavigne recently went public with her Chronic Lyme Disease battle, mainstream news outlets like The Daily Mail have been mentioning Lyme can be transmitted by mosquitoes, too!)

lyme-disease-tick

When Lyme isn’t detected in the early stages, it becomes Chronic Lyme, a condition which the CDC and IDSA both deny even exists. They will continue to deny it, because if there’s one thing insurance companies hate, it’s chronic disorders they have to spend time and money treating. Therefore, a panel with ties to insurance companies gathered to write up official Lyme guidelines that assure patients are only allowed a few weeks of antibiotic treatment and are not to be diagnosed with Chronic Lyme Disease (even if clear symptoms persist and invade the nervous system). Over half of the panelists who wrote the IDSA Lyme guidelines announcing that Chronic Lyme is not real — including the panel chairman — have obvious conflicts of interest including financial interests in drug companies, diagnostic tests, and patents, as well as consulting agreements with insurance companies. Researchers and scientists with evidence in support of Chronic Lyme were intentionally excluded from the panel. Because of these unjust Lyme guidelines, insurance companies have the “right” to deny coverage for the treatment of long-term Lyme disease. Doctors have even lost their practices for successfully diagnosing and treating Chronic Lyme, as shown in the film Under Our Skin. In the case of Dr. Joseph Jemsek of North Carolina, he not only lost his license, but also his livelihood. Dr. Jemsek can no longer practice simply because he gave antibiotics to Chronic Lyme sufferers, and was then sued by BCBS for 100 million dollars, following which he had to declare bankruptcy. You can read his closing remarks to the NC Medical Board just before they pulled his license here. You can also watch his story in the documentary at the end of this post.

Busted – Big Pharma bucks taint the IDSA

Connecticut Attorney General Richard Blumenthal investigated the IDSA panel members for possible violation of antitrust laws and conflicts of interest.

Of the 14 panel authors of the first edition guidelines: 6 of them or their universities held patents on Lyme or its co-infections, 4 received funding from Lyme or co-infection test kit manufacturers, 4 were paid by insurance companies to write Lyme policy guidelines or consult in Lyme legal cases, and 9 received money from Lyme disease vaccine manufacturers. Some of the authors were involved in more than one conflict of interest. (Source: ‘Under Our Skin [2008])

Study: Strong Evidence Of Sexual Transmission

The bacteria that causes Lyme disease is Borrelia burgdorferi, a type of corkscrew-shaped bacteria known as a spirochete. The Lyme spirochete is a cousin to Treponema pallidum, the spirochete that causes syphilis.

Dr. Alan MacDonald, MD who appears in the documentary ‘Under Our Skin’ (2008), says in the film that he found found Borrelia (Lyme) DNA in 7 out of 10 postmortem Alzheimers patients’ brains. This makes perfect sense, since syphilis, its cousin, also invades the brain in tertiary or neurosyphilis. Dr. Klinghardt, MD (also quoted from ‘Under Our Skin’) stated that he’s “never had a single patient with Alzheimer’s, ALS, Parkinson’s Disease or Multiple Sclerosis who tested negative for Borrelia.”

Dr. Alan MacDonald, MD talks about Lyme.

Why are so many people suffering from Lyme disease and its allegedly associated chronic disorders, such as Alzheimers and ALS? A new study suggests that just like its spirochete cousin that causes syphilis, Lyme disease may be sexually transmitted! The study was presented at the annual Western Regional Meeting of the American Federation for Medical Research, and an abstract of the research was published in the January issue of the Journal of Investigative Medicine.

Medical Daily reports,

The study — presented at the annual Western Regional Meeting of the American Federation for Medical Research — a collaborative effort by an international team of scientists — tested semen samples and vaginal secretions of three groups of patients to investigate whether passing Lyme disease to a partner through unprotected sex is a possibility. The study observed control subjects without evidence of Lyme disease, random subjects who tested positive for Lyme disease, and married heterosexual couples engaging in unprotected sex who tested positive for the disease. The presence of B. burgdorferi and identical strains of the bacterium were of particular interest to the researchers in unprotected sex in spouses.

The control subjects were found to test negative for the bacterium in semen samples or vaginal secretions, as expected by the researchers. The researchers found traces of B. burgdorferi in the vaginal secretions of all women with Lyme disease. In contrast, approximately half of the men with the disease tested positive for the bacterium in semen samples. In addition, one of the heterosexual couples with Lyme disease were found to have identical strains of the bacterium in their genital secretions.

One researcher in the study notes, “There is always some risk of getting Lyme disease from a tick bite in the woods. But there may be a bigger risk of getting Lyme disease in the bedroom.”

“Our findings will change the way Lyme disease is viewed by doctors and patients,” said Marianne Middelveen, lead author of the study. “It explains why the disease is more common than one would think if only ticks were involved in transmission.” But will this actually change the way Lyme disease is viewed? Or will the money funneled in by insurance companies and vaccine manufacturers continue to blind and corrupt the IDSA board members? When is enough, enough?

The study was a joint effort by a team of scientists which included dermatologists, molecular biologists, microbiologists, internists, and family practitioners. The most revealing aspect of the study, in my opinion, is the fact I mentioned earlier: one of the heterosexual couples with Lyme disease showed identical strains of the Lyme spirochete in their genital secretions. “The presence of the Lyme spirochete in genital secretions and identical strains in married couples strongly suggests that sexual transmission of the disease occurs,” said Dr. Mayne.

Gestational Transmission From Mother To Child

From LymeDisease.org:

A North Carolina State University researcher has discovered that Bartonella (a common Lyme co-infection) can be passed to unborn babies, causing chronic infections and possibly birth defects. Dr. Ed Breitschwerdt and his research group tested blood and tissue samples taken over a period of years from a mother, father and son who had suffered chronic illnesses for over a decade. Autopsy samples from their daughter–the son’s twin who died shortly after birth–contained DNA evidence of B. henselae and B. vinsonii subsp. berkhoffi infection, which was also found in the other members of the family. Breitschwerdt’s research appears online in the April 14 Journal of Clinical Microbiology.

You can read a transcript of one of Breitschwerdt’s interviews on Bartonella here.

Multiple Strains Of Lyme?

In 2002, W.T. Harvey, an MD from Houston, began finding large numbers of chronically ill Borrelia burgdorferi PCR- and seropositive patients in the area around his home and practice. Houston, Texas is declared a zoonotically “non-endemic” area, so he set out to understand just how this epidemic was occurring. W.T. Harvey had no competing financial interest (as the CDC and IDSA do) and received no grants when writing his study on Lyme.

“In order to understand this finding prior to sufficient data availability, we chose to examine critically the currently accepted but troublesome ‘Lyme disease’ concepts,” Harvey’s study reads. “Our method was to analyze each foundation ‘Lyme disease’ premise within the context of available medical and veterinary literature, then to reconstruct the disease model consistent with the preponderance of that data. We find the present conceptualization of the illness seriously truncated, with a high likelihood of two distinct but connected forms of human B. burgdorferi infection. The yet-unrecognized form appears to have a broader clinical presentation, wider geographic distribution, and vastly greater prevalence. We conclude that ‘Lyme disease’ currently acknowledges only its zoonosis arm and is a limited conceptualization of a far more pervasive and unrecognized infection state that must be considered a global epidemic.

Could You Have Lyme From Your Pets?

Suzy Cohen of suzycohen.com is a registered pharmacist and best-selling author. When she graduated from pharmacy school in 1989, she believed that medication was the answer to helping patients get healthy. When that didn’t always work, she began to do some serious research. In one article addressing the truth about Lyme, she writes:

“Most Lyme sufferers have pet cats and dogs, they are not aware that their pets gave it to them. But it happens like this, your pets go out into the yard to do their duty, and ticks jump on them, especially in May and June, their breeding season but any time of the year is possible. Your pet totes these ticks into your house and then you cuddle with your pet. The ticks get on you, and numb your skin. They are teeny tiny, about the size of a poppy seed and you’ll never know you got bit. They like every part of your body, but especially warmer areas, like armpits for example. You may never know. Sometimes the Lyme can happen from a cat scratch or bite. When I ask pet owners about their pets, they go into a bit of denial, because of the great love they have for pets. But you have to realize pets, for as delightful as they are, are tick taxis. If you have Lyme, and get bit again by your pet, you are potentially introducing new coinfections or re-innoculating yourself with more Lyme organisms. It explains why some people just can’t get well, or get setbacks even under treatment.”

Borrelia spirochetes have been found in the urine of infected dogs, among several other animals. Studies on mice have found that the spirochetes in urine remained viable for 18-24 hours and concluded that “[u]rine may provide a method for contact non-tick transmission of B. burgdorferi in natural rodent populations particularly during periods of nesting and/or breeding.” Evidence for direct contact transmission has been demonstrated in mice. These findings suggest that further research is needed to evaluate alternate methods of Lyme transmission, such as by the urine of infected animals to humans. 

Conclusion & How To Learn More:

7461400_f520

Could you have Lyme? I suspect I might after a series of flea bites in 2011, and I’m almost positive my mother has had it for a very long time. Her doctors are finally thinking the same. This is no shock to me; as Dr. Klinghardt stated above, Lyme is one of the many microbes that has entered our system. We are all exposed to pathogens and parasites on a daily basis, and are never taught anything about how to cleanse or maintain a largely uninhabitable inner environment (hint: a strong immune system)! In fact, I’m on my third parasite cleanse and still passing worms. What else are we housing that we don’t know about? Why is all of this information ignored?

Lyme presents itself in symptoms often misdiagnosed as Crohn’s Disease, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, ALS, MS, Alzheimer’s, Colitis, Encephalitis, Fibromyalgia, Fifth’s Disease, Arthritis, Cystitis, IBS, Lupus, Prostatitis, Psychiatric Disorders (bipolar, depression), Sjogren’s Syndrome, sleep disorders, thyroid disease, and more.

This is a long list, and the number of people who go misdiagnosed or undiagnosed altogether is staggering. As I said, Lyme and hundreds of other pathogens and parasites have taken up residence in our bodies. We have improved our outer practices of hygiene, yet have increased our sources of autointoxication: GMO foods, processed food-like products, overeating, fluoride in water, and chemicals in everything from household cleaners to plastics – just to name a few.

Please watch “Under Our Skin” to learn more about Chronic Lyme disease and how the medical industry continues to ignore this epidemic. The full documentary is available here with a short preview below.

The Top 10 Greatest FBI FAILS

Conspicuous SSID Fail is listed (or ranked) 1 on the list The Top 10 Greatest FBI FAILs of All Time
Photo: via Pinterest

A tragedy of Columbine proportions was narrowly avoided as Tampa police detained angsty 17-year-old Jared Michael Cano before he was able to set off a bomb on some of his classmates.

There was a multitude of evidence against this kid’s mental stability long before his bust, including several catch-and-releases in which Jared was charged with fire-arm burglary, felony-level weapons offenses, grand larceny, and several misdemeanor drug crimes. In it’s infinite wisdom, Florida decided to take little or no action and dismissed most of the cases, even as his Facebook page depicted him holding a machete and quoting the nihilistic movie Law Abiding Citizen, “Lessons not learned in blood are soon forgotten.” As Florida’s credo states, “Boys will be boys.”

Now, I have to give the FBI some credit for stepping in and not allowing Cano to kill anyone. Following a confidential informant’s tip, the authorities searched Jared’s room and found a wealth of bomb making materials and a journal which included minute-by-minute plans of how he was going to out-casualty any other school massacre, as well as some evil, evil marijuana.

Any credit the FBI earned is quickly face-palmed away, however, after reading Cano’s Facebook status update only a few days prior to the raid, “The weirdest thing happened today … when my homie was trying to connect to a wireless network the connections list came up and one of them was called: FBI_SURVEILLANCE_VAN… It was weird…” For a government agency that’s built its sterling reputation on being secretive, that’s pretty bad.

How lucky that Cano didn’t absorb any deduction skills in his no-doubt high quality Florida education and move his plan of mayhem forward before he was caught. This FBI fail probably would have resulted in the biggest tragedy ever caused from not hiding a SSID. Well, that and the time I forgot to secure my own wireless network and my neighbors started torrenting. That was just awful.

Russia Britain’s Greatest Threat

Russia Britain’s Greatest Threat?



by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)



A longstanding Western way of getting lawmakers to increase military spending is by inventing nonexistent threats – Russia usually named, how militarists get what they want.



It works in Britain like America, despite neither country threatened by any others.



Russia seeks cooperative relations with all other countries, threatening none. No “Russian aggression” exists in Ukraine or anywhere else.



Fear-mongering threats otherwise are phony. Washington invents them to justify outrageous military spending, endless imperial wars, and its global empire of bases in scores of countries on every continent – policies benefitting Wall Street, war-profiteers and other corporate predators at the expense of humanity.



Britain plays the same dirty game, allied with America, both countries partnering in endless wars of aggression.



Both are implacably hostile to Russia – for its sovereign independence and opposition to US-led imperial wars, not for any threat it poses to their national security.



On Monday, Britain’s military chief General Nick Carter lied, calling Russia Britain’s “most complex and capable security challenge we have faced since the Cold War” – in an address to the Royal United Services Institute.



“The time to address these threats is now. We cannot afford to sit back,” he roared, adding:



“Our ability to preempt or respond to threats will be eroded if we don’t keep up with our adversaries” – failing to explain Britain has none.



“We must take notice of what is going on around us or our ability to take action will be massively constrained,” Carter blustered. 



“Speed of decision-making, speed of deployment and modern capability are essential if we wish to provide a realistic deterrence.”



Most of Carter’s address focused on a nonexistent Russian threat at a time Britain’s new defense minister Gavin Williamson and other UK militarists called for increased defense spending – solely for offense, nothing to defend against.



In December, Britain’s air chief marshal Stuart Peach absurdly warned that Russian submarines could cut ocean floor Internet cables, doing “catastrophic” damage to Western economies.



According to Carter, Russia built an aggressive military force Britain “would struggle to match.” 



Russian military spending is a small fraction of America’s, far less than combined NATO spending.



Carter described what he called stages between war and peace, claiming “(t)he risk we run in not defining this clearly, and acting accordingly, is that rather like a chronic contagious disease it will creep up on us, and our ability to act will be markedly constrained  – and we’ll be the losers of this competition.”



In the 1930s when an increasing NAZI menace threatened Europe, Britain remained woefully unprepared when military preparedness was urgently needed.



Today, the only threats Britain, America and other Western nations face are phony invented ones – none from Russia, China, North Korea, Iran or any other countries.



Yet militarism dominates the thinking and actions of NATO countries. Throughout its post-Soviet history, Russia never attacked or threatened other nations.



It threatens none now – not America, Britain, other NATO countries or any others anywhere.



Carter turned truth on its head, claiming “Russia could initiate hostilities sooner than we expect, and a lot earlier than we would in similar circumstances,” adding: 



“Most likely they will use nefarious sub-(NATO’s) Article 5 actions to erode the credibility of NATO and threaten the very structure that provides our own defense and security.”



“This is the divide and rule which the international order is designed to prevent.”



“It won’t start with little green men. It will start with something we don’t expect. We should not take what we’ve seen so far as a template for the future.”



Carter ignored US military bases menacingly surrounding Russia, NATO military exercises provocatively close to its borders, its warships in the Black Sea close to its territory, its warplanes close to or entering its airspace.



Russia is threatened by US-led Western hostility toward its sovereign government – not the other way around.



It poses no threat to any other countries. The notion of a surprise Russian attack in any form against any nation is nil.

Today Dr. Duke had a very special Martin Luther King Day program. He presented a great deal of evidence that MLK was NOT the saintly figure he is made out to be. The media and public school system has turned him into the founding father of a new, post 1965 America, but the reality is that this new America is Jewish dominated and dedicated to destroying the white population that created America and were still close to 90% of the population in 1965.

Then Dr. Duke and Andrew Hitchcock go into the absurdity presented by Google that almost all of the great American inventors, scientists, and mathematicians were black. Anyone who went to school with blacks knows that they do not excel in these intellectual endeavors, yet each February public and schools devote massive amounts of tax payer-funded classroom hours to studying the amazing accomplishments of our black genius class.
