Israel Tightens Control

Glenn Greenwald at “The Intercept” posted an article that just shows to me how Israel more and more works hard and is succeeding in controlling this government. All of this is going on while, what, 800,000 government employees are not working?

You’ve seen the posts and reposts about AIPAC lobbying, about pro-Palestinian sites and people being harassed and worse.

But you’re a Christian and Israel is our friend right? Maybe you want live under their control, but I kind of want to keep any foreign governments from telling me what to do.

Glenn starts the article with –

When each new Congress is gaveled into session, the chambers attach symbolic importance to the first piece of legislation to be considered. For that reason, it bears the lofty designation of H.R.1 in the House, and S.1 in the Senate.
In the newly controlled Democratic House, H.R.1 – meant to signal the new majority’s priorities – is an anti-corruption bill that combines election and campaign finance reform, strengthening of voting rights, and matching public funds for small-dollar candidates. In the new 2017 Senate, the GOP-controlled S.1 was a bill, called the “Tax Cuts and Jobs Act,” that, among other provisions, cut various forms of corporate taxes.
But in the 2019 GOP-controlled Senate, the first bill to be considered – S.1 – is not designed to protect American workers, bolster U.S. companies, or address the various debates over border security and immigration. It’s not a bill to open the government. Instead, according to multiple sources involved in the legislative process, S.1 will be a compendium containing a handful of foreign-policy related measures, a main one of which is a provision, with Florida’s GOP Sen. Marco Rubio as a lead sponsor, to defend the Israeli government. The bill is a top legislative priority for AIPAC.

Reality

Now that the most philosophically controversial predictions of QM have—finally—been experimentally confirmed without remaining loopholes, there are no excuses left for those who want to avoid confronting the implications of QM. Lest we continue to live according to a view of reality now known to be false, we must shift the cultural dialogue towards coming to grips with what nature is repeatedly telling us about herself.

Be Here Now

Here it is.

This is the peak of rational human development.

Knowing this is to know all. Know as in experience.

Now what happens?

How does knowing this improve our development, our ‘evolution’?

It will not until it is connected to your daily existence. Your moment to moment passing.

Your momentary connection that allowed you to know your eternity is now being processed by your ego.

It feels special now having experienced ‘reality’.

You are now awake. You get it.

What happens now? What does your rational mind do with this information?

Those of you here at this point of awakening are only halfway there.

Knowing this is just a step. It is not the peak. How does it affect your behavior?

Now you are floating around with this profound knowledge that you have experienced.

Things start to get difficult as you increase your understanding of the implications of your experience.

They don’t fit well with what you have ‘discovered’.
