The George Floyd ‘Flashpoint’ and Scapegoating of Police in America . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 4 June 2020

  • COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”
  • TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

Dear Ones,

COVID AND SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM: “I CAN’T BREATHE”

I wonder if when George Floyd so poignantly said “I can’t breathe” and then passed on, whether that sent a message to us that face masks make it hard to breathe … that COVID also, they say, makes it hard to breathe … and somehow these two, the face masks and the COVID symptoms … are what are being protested, both at the same time, along with undue force by the policeman.

It seems almost as if the suffocation of George Floyd was the acting out in physical reality of our concerns about the pandemic, the concrete symbol of our fears. And now, after the ‘flashpoint’ event that occurred, it is almost as if the police are being pilloried as scapegoats … that our fears for our well-being have morphed into anger at them.

In recent weeks I have been doing an easy yoga set in addition to walking (which I love), and found these help quite a bit to divert my heart from the dramas so much in the news.

TRIPLE ECLIPSE PASSAGE

It seems likely to me that the events unfolding in the social arena have to do with the high energies of the Triple Eclipse Passage now underway …

Link: “Incoming Light! Triple Eclipse Passage,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 4 June 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-iuS ..

That passage heralds the New. Transforming to the New always requires courage, and overcoming one’s own desire to remain the same. Fear and anger do arise in our hearts, and we must counter these with positive emotions and right action in the world. That way we can become more like Christ, more like the Buddha, and more like Lord Krishna in our hearts and in the living of our lives.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Western States Pact and Possible Decentralization of the United States . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 2 June 2020

  • FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT
  • POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME
    • Decentralization Stressors
      • COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues

  • COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

Dear Ones,

FORMATION OF THE WESTERN STATES PACT

As you may know, a Western States Pact has been formed in response to the COVID-19 issue. To date, the states involved are Washington, Oregon, California, Colorado, and Nevada …

Link: “Colorado & Nevada Join California, Oregon & Washington in Western States Pact,” 27 April 2020 … https://www.gov.ca.gov/2020/04/27/colorado-nevada-join-california-oregon-washington-in-western-states-pact/ ..

This is a power block or united front asking for financial help from the federal government in response to the impact of COVID-19 on their states’ economies.

POSSIBLE DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES INTO LOOSELY FEDERALLY RULED ECONOMIC REGIONS IN YEARS TO COME

While this power block has a focused purpose, it does present a small step towards consolidating a Western economic region, in a way that is reminiscent of this possible timeline for relative decentralization of the United States into economic regions, with less control by a federal government as a possibility in years to come …

Link: “What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized?,” by Alice B. Clagett, written and published on 6 December 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-fnm ..

Decentralization Stressors

COVID-19, AIDS, and Less Federal Revenues. Among the stressors, in the current scenario, would be COVID-19 affecting the current economy of the large United States cities; AIDS (which prevents having viable offspring) affecting the Eastern Seaboard economic region (which is hard hit by AIDS) first, and other regions later; and in the short term, inability of the federal government to provide financial aid because of decreased tax payments next year because of unemployment caused by lockdowns this year.

The Price of Water and the Potential Need to Grow Crops. In addition, here in Los Angeles the price of water has made it untenable to raise crops; water prices may rise elsewhere in the United States as well. For those in the cities, I suggest a power block lobbying for reasonably priced water. For those who can move away from the cities, I suggest moving to regions of plentiful rainfall, so that a sustainable or survival-oriented lifestyle can be maintained if necessary.

COVID-19 LOCKDOWNS VERSUS THE COMMON GOOD

My feeling is that riots and curfews are happening in New York, Los Angeles and elsewhere because people who have no savings have been prevented from making a living by lockdowns in the urban areas of the United States. My hope is that our mayors and governors will see the wisdom of balancing relatively few lives lost through COVID-19 against social unrest caused by inability to get work.

Italy, for instance, was very hard hit by the epidemic, yet their people are going back to work and reopening churches. In addition, Dallas, Texas is doing so. From available news, the resurgence of COVID-19 in Wuhan, which reopened for business a while ago, has been far less in numbers than the good caused by the ability of the people to feed and clothe themselves.

In other words, I feel that, in terms of lockdown or return to normalcy, we must weigh the common good against our fears regarding possible, but as yet unproven, negative outcomes. For all we know, the worst is over, and better days lie just beyond the horizon, nearly within our ken.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

The Human Heart, Aligned with That of God, Unveils Great Mysteries . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 28 December 2019
Previously titled: A Thought for the New Year

  • THE HUMAN HEART, ALIGNED WITH THAT OF GOD, UNVEILS GREAT MYSTERIES

Dear Ones,

I found a note in my hand in my well-worn copy of the book “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali” and was inspired to write this message for my star kindred here on Earth. The occasion is New Years Day 2020 …

THE HUMAN HEART, ALIGNED WITH THAT OF GOD, UNVEILS GREAT MYSTERIES

It is the error of men to try to control the world … and the error of women to try to save it. In truth, there is no world beyond our sphere of influence … no world beyond us, against which we struggle in vain. Our realm of endeavor … our purpose of attaining human form … lies right within us.

May I master my wayward mind through contemplation of my heart, as Patanjali advises …

Citation: “How to Know God: The Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali,” translated with a commentary by Swami Prabhavananda and Christopher Isherwood, copyright 1953, 1981 by The Vedanta Society of Southern California … See page 187;  the chapter “III. Powers,” number 35, which states (to paraphrase) that it is through contemplation of the heart that we master our own minds.

May I learn to control, not the world … not the ways of power, nor the ephemeral billboard of worldly fame, nor the intricate Dark web of political intrigue … but rather to control myself. May seek to I save myself, through God’s grace.

May I humbly seek to align my heart with the Great Heart of God which, beating and pulsing through the pathways between the stars … those byways of the Angel Realm … informs and enlivens all beings everywhere … from the tiniest cosmic ray to the greatest star; from the humblest mineral form to the most sentient of beings; and in our earthly realm, from the poorest and most desperate of humankind to the popes and presidents of countries and of international conglomerates.

Who knows but what the well tuned heart might sing the song of God’s mighty Universe; and, taking Archangel Michael by the hand, traverse with him the farthest reaches of His great creation! So may each of us, I pray, walk with utmost reverence the great interstellar paths, and come to know, in the truest sense, that we humankind are children of the stars.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

What If: Will the United States Become Less Centralized? . by Alice B. Clagett *

Written and published on 6 December 2019
Prior title: What If the United States Became Less Federal and More Regional in Government? 

Dear Ones,

ECONOMIC STRESSORS THAT MAY LEAD TO DECENTRALIZATION OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT          top

I have some thoughts on the state of the nation. Intuitively, I sense economic stressors that may gradually lead to our Federal government taking a lesser role in the governance of the United States, compared to regional alliances of states. I see the Federal government continuing to provide military defense, social security payments, and leadership in foreign affairs. I also see states taking more initiative in economics for their regions.

As to trade, I see future reliance on established railroad routes and water routes such as the Mississippi river. I anticipate that, should there be a gradual lessening of Federal power, then there might be more trade within an economic region, and less trade globally and nationally.

As to finance, I see potential reliance on barter, with care no to place our financial assets in overseas locations. Local-employment based credit unions may come into favor as regional savings repositories.

There may be more reliance on those economic sectors that hold strong during recessions … such as locally grown food, locally obtainable building materials, and water supplies not piped in over long distances.

As to economic stressors, I suggest the economic impact of the HIV pandemic, stress of regional aridity due to long-distance water transport costs,

A socially disruptive stressor is handheld psychosis, which may lead to chaotic events such as mass murders and actions by public utilities and military regarding perceived dangers that do not truly exist. This might precipitate social unrest in regions of the United States pinpointed by the Jade Helm exercises.

CAVEATS REGARDING POSSIBLE LOCI OF SOCIAL UNREST          top

In United States cities, the high cost of housing and the increasing phenomenon of homelessness may lead to social unrest and attempted land grabs through anarchist behavior; this is something for which, I feel, every large city mayor and every state government ought to have on hand emergency action plans. For states in arid regions, emergency anti-anarchist plans ought, I feel, to highlight security of water transport systems. Electrical grids, I feel, might also be an anarchist target.

We people in large United States cities can be of big help in creating peaceful environments for our children by offering our law enforcement departments volunteer help through neighborhood watch programs.

ON MAINTAINING A POSITIVE ATTITUDE IN THE FACE OF CHANGE          top

It seems unlikely to me that anything would happen in a moment; rather I feel that the United States might very slowly tend towards a model of government more akin to the state by state model of our early years as a nation. We may find, in future, that traveling from one state to the next is a refreshingly new experience. Not everyone may be watching the same thing on television every night anymore; there may be less airline flights from here to there; and so the natural flavor and local color of each region of the United States may become more striking to the casual tourist.

In addition, it may be that some regions of the United States may be more perilous for tourist travel, as was the case for travelers in the early years of our nation.

I realize the prospect of change can be unsettling. It is good to keep in mind that changes such as those spoken of above … if, indeed, change there be … would in all likelihood take place by slow stages, over the course of the next century or two. Thus I feel certain there would be plenty of time to make our plans and find our footing in the new.

POSSIBLE FUTURE UNITED STATES ECONOMIC REGIONS AND TRADE REGIONS          top

Below are some maps I have adapted to show possible United States economic regions and trade regions of centuries to come. I would be interested on your comments regarding this intriguing topic of the eventual possibility that the United States government might become less centralized, and more imbued with local flavor and with the strong spirit of our local communities.

Community Health: The Misleading Nature of CDC Reports on the HIV / AIDS Crisis in America . by Alice B. Clagett *

Dear Ones,

MISLEADING NATURE OF CDC HIV DATA

Over the years I have written quite a few blogs on the HIV / AIDS global pandemic. Chicken that I am, I feel I have failed to convey my feeling that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) is releasing data about the pandemic that greatly misrepresent the difficulties that lie before us as a nation. Perhaps this misrepresentation is intentional; perhaps it is political in nature … and perhaps not. Who can say?

The crux of the matter is that the data the CDC typically presents to the public have to do with disease ‘incidence’ rather than disease ‘prevalence’ or ‘lifetime risk’.

‘INCIDENCE’ of HIV / AIDS

As I understand it, disease ‘incidence’ has to do with how many new cases will be diagnosed next year, or the following year. These data are important to medical doctors, so that they can have sufficient medications on hand for the coming year.

‘PREVALENCE’ or ‘LIFETIME RISK’ of HIV / AIDS

‘Prevalence’, or ‘lifetime risk’ offers data on the likelihood that we and our families will contract HIV / AIDS during our lifetime. These are the data that I feel are hard to find in the CDC documents. Yet these are the data that help us plan for our families’ future.

How Family Wealth Planning for Future Generations Is Affected by HIV Prevalence

For instance, if our children, according to ‘lifetime risk’ data, are likely to contract HIV / AIDS in their lifetime, then we might ask: At what age are they likely to contract the disease?

If they contract it in early childhood, from what I have read, it is apparently likely they will die from it at a young age.

If they contract the disease at about the age of puberty, from what I have read, it is likely they will be unable to bear offspring that live more than a few years.

If our children contract the disease while their children are young, then apparently the risk is high that their young children will contract the disease from their parents through suckling milk, or transmission of bodily fluids while the family has bouts of cold or flu, or through childhood play.

Whether or not our children will contract the disease before they bear children is, I feel, very important to each family’s planning for the future. If there are no grandchildren, then that will make a big difference in the wealth that must be set aside for future generations. In addition, health care costs and the economic impact of sick leave downtime for our infected children and grandchildren is a wealth planning consideration.

How May We Instill Hope in Our Families, Even Though They May Have HIV?

If the lifetime risk of contracting HIV / AIDS is high, either because of lifestyle choices, or because of race or ethnicity, or because of the city or state or region of the United States in which we live, then now would be the time to plan with our children and grandchildren for a future that may involve infection.

Our families need to have some hope to live for, even though they may be infected.

I will say that, in my opinion, the CDC does a great job of glossing over the downside, and providing the upside of life with HIV / AIDS. So families can go to their site to learn that life with HIV is no big deal in the United States, any more.

By that is meant, I feel, that for those who are able to tolerate the drug regimens that have been developed, the prospect of a long and productive life is good. And that is something that might offer hope to our children: They may find that they, or their friends, contract the disease.

Careers Despite HIV. Maybe they may not be able to have families of their own, but they can look forward to fulfilling careers, and maybe good health for quite a long time.

Continuing to Work Despite Blindness. I note that, as of 2001 10-20% of people worldwide who had AIDS were becoming blind in one or both eyes …

Link: “HIV / AIDS and Blindness,” by P. G. Kestelyn and E. T. Cunningham, Jr, Bull World Health Organ 2001, 79(3), 208-213 … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2566369/ ..

Thus, as a nation, we must retool as many industries as possible so that our eyesight-impaired HIV-positive children can continue on with their careers even should they have low vision.
RECENT CDC FIGURES ON HIV LIFETIME RISK

Today I found a pretty good pdf file offered by the CDC, that presents lifetime risk and also age-conditional risk by race and ethnicity, gender, and state. The data are from 2009-2013 …

Link: “Lifetime Risk of a Diagnosis of HIV Infection in the United States,” by Kristen L. Hess, PhD, MPH, Xiaohong Hu, MS, Amy Lansky, PhD, MPH, Jonathan Mermin, MD, and H. Irene Hall, PhD, MPH, HHS Public Access Author Manuscript, Ann. Epidemiol. published in final edited form as: Ann Epidemiol. 2017 April ; 27(4): 238-243, doi:10.1016/j.annepidem.2017.02.003 … https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5524204/ ..

By clicking on the above pdf link you can download the document to your computer.

Of special note are the three tables at the end of the document.

Table 1. Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis, by Sex, Race/Ethnicity, and Risk Group, United States

Gender Inequality in Testing for HIV / AIDS. I note the total lifetime risk for men is 1 in 68 people, and for women 1 in 253 people. I believe this has to do with gender inequality in testing for HIV / AIDS. I feel the perception in the medical community is that MSM men are at risk for HIV / AIDS, and so, I feel, doctors are more likely to test men than women.

As I have mentioned priorly, it could be that bisexual men who are dating or married to women and raising families are also at risk, and that their wives and families are at risk and fail to test for HIV – AIDS because they are uninformed about their boyfriends’ or husbands’ exposure to risk.

I would like to see equal gender testing for HIV / AIDS, especially among couples with children where the boyfriend or husband tests positive for HIV. Then the medical community might, a few years from now, reassess the total lifetime risk for women.

Lifetime Risk for Black Men Who Have Sex with Men. I note the lifetime risk of contracting HIV / AIDS is 1 in 2 men. The overall lifetime risk for men who have sex with men is 1 in 6 men. From this I feel that women who want to have families ought to ascertain, before becoming pregnant, whether the prospective fathers in fact prefer to have sex with men. I feel that societal expectations, especially amongst Christians, make it especially difficult for Christian men to disclose this bias to prospective wives.

Given this, I feel all women hoping to have children ask those men they want to be intimate with for HIV test results, keeping in mind that chastity for one month after the last sexual contact is necessary before tests such as Oraquick can provide relatively accurate results. The last I read in the fine print of the Oraquick package was that there was a 10 percent error in this type of saliva test.  HIV blood tests, while more expensive, are a good deal more accurate; they are the best the medical community can offer presently.

Table 2. Lifetime Risk of HIV Diagnosis, by State, United States

From this table, I note a big range of risks, state by state, and in the District of Columbia.

Great Disparity in Lifetime Risk, State by State. For instance, the lifetime risk in Maryland is 1 in 56 people. But the risk in Montana is 1 in 674 people. The other states are in between these two extremes, with Georgia and Florida on the very risky side, and Idaho and North Dakota on the ‘unrisky’ side.

The first thought along these lines, for families who are concerned about HIV infection, might be (and I agree it seems logical) to relocate to a state that has less lifetime risk of infection.

Possible Underreporting of Risk by States for Economic Reasons. Amongst the states, I feel it likely that there may be HIV / AIDS ‘underreporting’, and that this may have to do with the tourist trade, or perceived need to attract new business to one’s home state. If this is true, I hope lifetime risk reporting will become more accurate in the next few years, as our states owe it to their residents to offer accurate figures, so that families can take steps for disease prevention and health care.

Risk in Large Cities. I note the lifetime risk of HIV / AIDS is 1 in 17 people in the District of Columbia, which is the heart of one of our large metropolitan areas. In past blogs, I have asked for a breakdown of lifetime risk for our large cities, as the very high risk in the District of Columbia may in fact indicate high risk in other large United States cities as well.

Table 3. 10-Year Age-Conditional Risk (1 in n) of HIV Diagnosis Among HIV-Free Males and Females, Aged 20-50 Years, United States

Young Men Who Have Sex with Men Are at Greater Risk of New HIV Diagnosis. From these data I see that overall, it is four times more likely that men who have sex with men, and who are 20 years of age will get a new diagnosis of HIV than will men who have sex with men, and who are 50 years of age.

New HIV Diagnosis Risk for Young Men Who Have Sex with Men Varies Greatly by Race / Ethnicity. For black men who have sex with men, the risk of new diagnosis of HIV is 1 in 4 at age 20 and 1 in 26 at age 50. For Hispanic men who have sex with men, the figures are 1 in 13 at age 20, and 1 in 40 at age 50. For White men who have sex with men, the figures are 1 in 39 at age 20 and 1 in 79 at age 50.

New HIV Diagnosis Risk for People Who Inject Drugs is Much Less Than for Men Who Have Sex with Men. Also, I see that people who inject drugs and are 20 years of age are somewhat less likely to get a new diagnosis of HIV than people who are 50 years of age; and that the overall new diagnosis risk for people who inject drugs is, across the age spectrum, very much less than for men who have sex with men.

New HIV Diagnosis Risk for Young Women Who Inject Drugs Is Twice as Great as for Young Men. Overall, for men who inject drugs the new diagnosis risk is 1 in 220 at age 20, and 1 in 167 at age 50. For women who inject drugs the new diagnosis risk is 1 in 108 at age 20 and 1 in 112 at age 50. That would mean that amongst people who inject drugs, women 20 years of age are about twice as likely to get a new HIV diagnosis as are men that age.

Can We Extrapolate That HIV Diagnosis Risk for Young Women is Twice as Great as That for Young Men? As both men and women who inject drugs know they are at risk, it seems to me fair to assume they are testing for HIV in a gender equal way. Thus the figures for new diagnosis risk for men and women who inject drugs might help provide an answer regarding the true new diagnosis risk for women who fail to test because they do not know their boyfriends or husbands are having sex with men.

We might go with the assumption that women who are dating or married to men who have sex with men have twice as much risk of new HIV diagnosis as the men. Amongst 20-year-old men having sex with men the new diagnosis risk is 1 in 15. Projecting from the drug injection risk, 20-year-old women who have sex with men who also have sex with men might be expected to have a new diagnosis risk of 1 in 8 (twice as risky as for the men).

I arrive at this estimate by creating a similar ratio, like this …

  • New diagnosis risk at 20 for men versus women who inject drugs = 1/220 for men versus 1 in 109 for women (about twice as risky for women)
  • Extrapolating new diagnosis risk at 20 for men versus women in relationships where the man has sex with men = 1 in 15 for men versus 1 in 8 (about twice as risky) for women

Importance of Gender Equality in HIV / AIDS Testing of Young People. The above estimate highlights how important gender equality in HIV / AIDS testing may be right now, as regards testing for young women.

From the above estimate we might also extrapolate the number of men who are not disclosing their bisexual lifestyle. If in fact it proves true that twice as many young women as young men, overall, are getting new HIV diagnoses, then it seems to me possible that as many as half of American men are engaging in sex with men as well as with their female sexual partners and wives.

What otherwise would account for young women having a higher incidence of new diagnoses than young men? I have read online that many young women have sex with two men by about age 20. If one of these two had HIV, and gave it to the young woman, then her new male partner would be at risk of infection as well. If this were to be so, then the risk for young women might be from young men who also have sex with men. And the risk for young men might be from having sex with either young men who have sex with men, or from having sex with young women who have done so. Do you not feel this to be true?

If so, then the feat that lies before the medical profession would be to find the most effective way of gathering information from young HIV positive men regarding their female sexual partners, and of persuading the men to allow their female sexual partners to test.

Blessings to all,

In love, light and joy,

Homed Who Live Next to Homeless Encampments in Los Angeles . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 11 September 2019

Dear Ones,

It seems to me there is concern for personal safety among homeowners and their families who live next to homeless encampments in Los Angeles. On mulling over this issue, I came to understand the depth of despair of fathers and husbands who have invested their life savings in providing homes for their families, and whose wives and children can no longer safely leave home at night, because of homeless encampments on their sidewalks or in treed or grassy areas nearby.

It occurred to me that passive defense systems might offer an alternative to taking the law into one’s own hands on behalf of family safety. Along these lines, I thought homeowners might consider installing floodlights that illuminate terrain between them and the homeless encampments at night, so that their families could feel safe to walk out of their houses. I also wonder if high fences around homeowners’ yards might help.

Housing codes regarding the height of property fences can cause trouble with safety in these times, as those who wrote the codes could not have foreseen the current difficulty. Maybe property fencing codes could be got round by using temporary construction fencing in the yard? Maybe it might be sensible to go ahead and put up high fences around the home, with the agreement of one’s neighbors, since getting the codes changed may take some time.

In addition, I thought, it might be possible to install perimeter electronic alarms, that would provide a warning if the yard is trespassed on? Maybe others will come up with passive defense systems for homed families as well.

I know it is not fair to think about putting walls up and protecting our homes. It’s not something we have ever had to do before. Why should we have to do it now? Why should we go to the expense? Why does not the City of Los Angeles just fix the problem? It seems to me that is what folks are wondering, and I have been wondering that too.

Finally it came to me that the City of Los Angeles may not have a solution for us. They may not have the staff, the financial resources, or the flexible problem-solving ability to deal with the question. I say that because the problem has been before LA for 10 years now, and the City has not come up with a solution.

It seems to me that we Los Angeles homeowners must come up with our own solutions. But what will those solutions be? Some feel angry; they feel like hurting the homeless. Others feel afraid; again and again, they ask the Los Angeles Police Department to remove the homeless from their block.

I myself feel that we ought to do my best to find physical deterrents, such as high fences, perimeter alarm systems, and camera surveillance systems to protect our homes from the unhomed, and from roaming felon gangs.

When our homes are as protected as possible, we can feel safe to continue to work with our communities towards good solutions.

I recently went to a meeting of the West Hills Neighborhood Council Committee on Homelessness. It seemed to me they work with the office of the Mayor in a political way. The political approach involves jockeying with the powers that be for application of the City’s very limited financial resources to a problem for which we are lobbying, in our own interests.

Politicking takes time. More than 10 years … that is patently clear. I feel we need to find other grassroots ways to solve this problem.

Right now, I am thinking we could approach West Hills churches, civic groups, clubs, and businesses we belong to or patronize, and ask them what they can do to help. Could be we the people can together find a solution to the problem of West Hills homelessness … a solution that so far has eluded City Hall.

In love, light and joy,

Community Health: Homed Who Live Next to Homeless Encampments . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 17 August 2019

Dear Ones,

As you may know, California is a Sanctuary State for the nation’s homeless. Here in Los Angeles, there are 50,000 to 60,000 homeless people. Homeless encampments, though small, are a prevalent feature of the urban landscape. In addition, there are homeless communities in the mountains, which pose an issue of possible fire during our annual fire seasons.

For some years now I have been active in Neighborhood Watch in my neighborhood, and also keep abreast of my larger neighborhood through NextDoor … https://nextdoor.com/ … Lately, I have begun attending local monthly Neighborhood Council and Topanga Los Angeles Police Department community meetings as well. These have helped me get a better grasp of the problems our city faces.

It seems to me there is concern for personal safety among homeowners and their families who live next to homeless encampments in Los Angeles. On mulling over this issue, I came to understand the depth of despair of fathers and husbands who have invested their life savings in providing homes for their families, and whose wives and children can no longer safely leave home at night, because of homeless encampments on their sidewalks or in treed or grassy areas nearby.

In addition, I thought, it might be possible to install perimeter electronic alarms, that would provide a warning if the yard is trespassed on?

My hope is that others will come up with thoughts on passive defense systems for homed families as well.

Thoughts on Home Ownership by Foreigners in the United States . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 21 May 2019

Dear Ones,

My feeling is, in future the United States ought to offer foreigners the same opportunity to work, and own homes, as is the case for United States citizens in the corresponding foreign countries.

In other words, for instance, if United States citizens were to be able to own land in Mexico; and if we were to be able to find employment in Mexico, then let us provide employment and property ownership for Mexican peoples who are here in Los Angeles. And we might offer the same trade with other countries.

In that way we might acquire for our citizens more rights in foreign lands.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

Here in the United States, we are faced with lack of funds to deal with big problems of homelessness, unemployment, underemployment, and poverty-line living. For some years now, these difficult problems have been before us, and felicitous solutions, to date, do not avail.

Why is it that we have not found viable, long-term solutions to these problems? I feel it is because we have not felt desperate enough, or perhaps innovative enough, to look outside the envelope, and see what other nations that have been facing similar problems have come up with in terms of solutions.

I took a look at the United States Central Intelligence Agency’s “World Factbook,” hoping to come up with some off-the-wall offerings, and came up with the example of the dire poverty faced by North Korea, and its institution of Forced Labor for public projects. Here is part of what I found out …

HOW NORTH KOREA DEALS WITH INCURABLE POVERTY AND STARVATION

As I see it, in North Korea, the problem is intractable, long-term, incurable poverty. I have for you this quotation from the “CIA World Factbook,” with regard to the grim facts of the North Korean economy …

“North Korea, one of the world’s most centrally directed and least open economies, faces chronic economic problems. Industrial capital stock is nearly beyond repair as a result of years of underinvestment, shortages of spare parts, and poor maintenance. Large-scale military spending and development of its ballistic missile and nuclear program severely draws off resources needed for investment and civilian consumption. Industrial and power outputs have stagnated for years at a fraction of pre-1990 levels. Frequent weather-related crop failures aggravated chronic food shortages caused by on-going systemic problems, including a lack of arable land, collective farming practices, poor soil quality, insufficient fertilization, and persistent shortages of tractors and fuel.

“The mid 1990s through mid 2000s were marked by severe famine and widespread starvation. Significant food aid was provided by the international community through 2009. Since that time, food assistance has declined significantly. In the last few years, domestic corn and rice production has improved, although domestic production does not fully satisfy demand. A large portion of the population continues to suffer from prolonged malnutrition and poor living conditions. Since 2002, the government has allowed semi-private markets to begin selling a wider range of goods, allowing North Koreans to partially make up for diminished public distribution system rations. It also implemented changes in the management process of communal farms in an effort to boost agricultural output …” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook,  North Korea” … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain.

FORCED LABOR IN NORTH KOREA AS A BARTER SUBSTITUTE FOR THE COINED TAX SYSTEM

Rather than asking people, who have nothing, for taxes, instead North Korea is conscripting people into forced labor situations for nothing … for free … to help with government projects …

… North Korea is a source country for men, women, and children who are subjected to forced labor and sex trafficking; many North Korean workers recruited to work abroad under bilateral contracts with foreign governments, most often Russia and China, are subjected to forced labor and do not have a choice in the work the government assigns them, are not free to change jobs, and face government reprisals if they try to escape or complain to outsiders; tens of thousands of North Koreans, including children, held in prison camps are subjected to forced labor, including logging, mining, and farming; many North Korean women and girls, lured by promises of food, jobs, and freedom, have migrated to China illegally to escape poor social and economic conditions only to be forced into prostitution, domestic service, or agricultural work through forced marriages.” –from Link: “CIA World Factbook, North Korea,” in the section: Transnational Issues … Subheading: Trafficking in persons … https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/resources/the-world-factbook/geos/kn.html … public domain.

To some degree, the ‘forcing of labor’ in North Korea, I feel in some instances may be a substitute for the coined tax system … It is more like a ‘barter’ tax, you know? We might look at this practice and offhandedly think of it as a completely evil thing, whereas, in fact, it may be a necessary thing there, so as to keep the economy alive, in a situation where everyone faces starvation whenever (as is often the case) weather conditions are not good.

HOW THE UNITED STATES EMPLOYS FORCED LABOR IN OTHER GUISE

I feel that we have various forms of forced labor here in the United States … forced labor that may be less injurious to human rights, but nevertheless forced labor. It is just that we cushion it with other terms … more aesthetic terms … according to our ideas of how things ought to be. Here are two kinds of ‘forced labor’ that we look favorably upon in the United States …

Community Service in Lieu of Prison Time

For instance, North Korea has forced labor part of the year … during which the people in the towns have to work for the government for free or for almost nothing … That has analogies to community service at, say, $40 a day, in lieu of prison time for Coloradans.

Link: “Alternatives in Imposition of Sentence in Colorado CRS 18-1.3-104,” by Colorado Legal Defense Group … https://www.shouselaw.com/colorado/CO_alternative_sentences.html ..

Prison ‘Work Release’ Programs

Then, I noticed in Mendocino County, California, there are various prison ‘work release’ programs … home detention, work release, and work furlough …

Link: “Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office” … https://www.mendocinosheriff.com/ … Click on: Corrections

ADVANTAGES OF OFFERING FELONS RURAL AND WILDERNESS WORK CAMP OPPORTUNITIES

Work Camps as Work Ethic Education

I recall that, in Russia and China, they think of forced labor as a way of educating people with regard to the work ethic … inculcating a notion of being productive members of society. And we might consider it like that too.

If we cannot house the felons in urban prisons, we could expand our programs to house them in work camps in rural or wilderness areas. These work camps might be viewed as offering education in the work ethic, and in that way, helping felons to qualify for good jobs after their release.

On Offering Habitual Offenders ‘Rough and Tumble’ Jobs Far From Urban Centers

In addition to providing work ethic education, work camp job experience would likely provide improved physical conditioning. This might help released felons find ‘rough and tumble’ jobs far from urban centers, occupations such as lumberjacking, or tramp steamer crew, for instance. Maybe, work in the mines, or in the deserts, or on oil rigs. There might be a segment of felons to whom rough and tumble jobs appeal; and this appeal might decrease recidivism.

There may be felons with many offenses, and whom we are unable to keep in prison. Yet if they are released, they might look for criminal work, and not wish to integrate into the general community. In some cases, they might fall into the category ‘antisocial personalities’. In such instances, it might be good if they found work away from the general population.

If California is unable to house multiple offenders, we might also consider offering those serving time the option to become a free person, or a semi-free person, in an occupation that is far from the general public … where the released prisoners cannot hurt the general public.

CONCLUSION

My thought as to whether forced labor might successfully be employed in the United States is this: Considering the American way of life, forced labor could never succeed here if it ruthlessly trammels human rights. I do feel, on the other hand, that the choice of modified versions of forced labor … as amongst the prison populations, or for released felons, or for the indigent … might be offered as an alternative, a free will choice, that might prove appealing, were its benefits to be properly laid out, and then offered by way of explanation to those undertaking it.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

This is a Call to Action regarding the entertainment industry. As I understand it, international relations suffer because of the violent, overtly sexual, and recreational drug content of the movies that are exported from the United States. I speak specifically of the Islamic countries and of China, which have different ethics … more strict ethics … than the ethics exhibited by the movies that are exported.

I would like to ask for sanctions on exportation of those sorts of films to foreign countries, in the interests of international diplomatic relations with the world.

In addition, because the young people of the United States are being influenced by the entertainment industry towards these dark actions of violence, crime, promiscuity, and overuse of recreational drugs, I would like to request that United States localities … cities, counties, and state governments … consider taxation of films with this type of content, with the intention of earmarking the sums received for maintaining additional law enforcement personnel to take care of the violence that ensues, and for healthcare facilities to help people through rehabilitation after they become addicted to drugs.

So those two things I ask for …

  1. In the international arena, politics, governance in the United States, I am asking this of Washington DC itself: That sanctions be placed on exportation of films that may adversely influence our image as a country abroad.
  2. And the other, on the local level: A tax to deal with the increased cost incurred by our communities because of the nature of the films and movies put out by the entertainment industry.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

California Call to Action: HIV Transmission Rates and Other News Updates on HIV / AIDS . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 24 August 2018

  • CALL TO ACTION: CAN CALIFORNIA PROVIDE ART (ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY) TO HIV-POSITIVE SEX WORKERS WHO LACK HEALTH INSURANCE, SO AS TO PREVENT HIV TRANSMISSION?
  • CALIFORNIA LAW REGARDING INTENTIONAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV
  • MEDICAID AND MEDICARE WILL PAY FOR HIV TESTING AND TREATMENT
  • HIV TRANSMISSION RATES LOOK QUITE OPTIMISTIC PROVIDED HIV-POSITIVE PEOPLE USE ART

Dear Ones,

CALL TO ACTION: CAN CALIFORNIA PROVIDE ART (ANTIRETROVIRAL THERAPY) TO HIV-POSITIVE SEX WORKERS WHO LACK HEALTH INSURANCE, SO AS TO PREVENT HIV TRANSMISSION?

I have read some articles recently that state HIV transmission rates are quite low, especially if blood titer is low. As ART (antiretroviral therapy) keeps blood titer low, I suggest providing HIV-Positive Sex Workers with ART, even if they do not have health insurance, so as to prevent the transmission of HIV to their clients and their clients’ wives.

I ask that the State of California consider this proposal on an urgent basis.

CALIFORNIA LAW REGARDING INTENTIONAL TRANSMISSION OF HIV

I note that California has lowered the penalty for intentional transmission of HIV from a felony to a misdemeanor as of 2018 …

Link: “California lowers penalty for knowingly exposing partners to HIV,” by Alaa Elassar and Laura Diaz-Zuniga, CNN, updated 10 October 2017 … https://www.cnn.com/2017/10/07/health/california-hiv-bill-signed/index.html ..

MEDICAID AND MEDICARE WILL PAY FOR HIV TESTING AND TREATMENT

I see also that Medicaid and Medicare are covering the cost of annual HIV tests and treatment now …

Link: “HIV Screening,” at Medicare.gov … https://www.medicare.gov/coverage/hiv-screening.html ..

Link: “Medicaid Coverage of HIV Testing,” in KFF: Henry J Kaiser Family Foundation …  https://www.kff.org/hivaids/state-indicator/hiv-testing/?currentTimeframe=0&sortModel=%7B%22colId%22:%22Location%22,%22sort%22:%22asc%22%7D ..

Link: “Paying for HIV Care and Treatment,” at HIV.gov … https://www.hiv.gov/hiv-basics/staying-in-hiv-care/hiv-treatment/paying-for-hiv-care-and-treatment ..

… and that the Affordable Care Act has broadened cost protection for treatment of HIV and AIDS …

Link: “The Affordable Care Act and HIV / AIDS,” in HIV.gov … https://www.hiv.gov/federal-response/policies-issues/the-affordable-care-act-and-hiv-aids ..

HIV TRANSMISSION RATES LOOK QUITE OPTIMISTIC PROVIDED HIV-POSITIVE PEOPLE USE ART

Data on HIV transmission rates are looking quite optimistic. This article in HealthLine, for instance …

Link: “Exploring HIV Transmission Rates,” in HealthLine … https://www.healthline.com/health/hiv-aids/hiv-transmission-rates ..

… states that receptive rectal intercourse with a partner results in AIDS transmission in 138 out of 10,000 sex acts

… Receptive penile-vaginal sex has a transmission rate of 8 in 10,000 sex acts, and

— Insertive penile-vaginal sex has a transmission risk of 4 in 10,000 sex acts

And this article …

Link: “9 Myths about HIV / AIDS,” from HealthLine … https://www.healthline.com/health/hiv-aids/misconceptions-about-hiv-aids#3 ..

… states that HIV-positive women who would like to have children have a risk as low as 1% of transmitting HIV to their fetus, provided they have been on ART for a while.

… and also that HIV-positive men who are on ART and whose viral load is undetectable have nearly zero risk of transmitting HIV to offspring in the act of conception.

This article …

Link: “Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV,” in HIV.gov, 24 May 2018 … https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/understanding-hiv-aids/fact-sheets/20/50/preventing-mother-to-child-transmission-of-hiv ..

… states that the rate of transmission of HIV from a mother to her child are as low as 2%, provided the mom takes ART while pregnant and while giving birth, and provided the newborn has a course of newborn ART for 4-6 weeks after birth.

As the outlook regarding HIV transmission rates keeps evolving as new data are analyzed, I feel it is important to check on new research results from time to time.

Christian Science Practitioner Medical Tax Write-Off as a Model for Alternative Medicine? . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 5 July 2018

Dear Ones,

I note that alternative healing techniques such as yoga, aromatherapy, herbal healing, and the languages of Light and sound are termed ancilliary or possibly palliative health modalities. That is to say, they are not a replacement for traditional Western medical care. The thought is that they may help the patient, but that a patient should, first and foremost, seek traditional Western medical advice.

I myself have more of a Christian Science point of view. I feel that a person knows, in their very heart, what will help them heal and what will not. That they have at hand, through God’s grace, all that they need to be in perfect health.

Along these lines, last week I noticed with pleasant surprise that the IRS allows write-offs for the expense of Christian Science practitioners, on Schedule A of Form 1040 (the annual United States federal income tax form).

Link: “Can You Deduct Alternative Medicines on Your Taxes?” by Susannah Snider, 4 April 2017, in “U.S. News” … https://money.usnews.com/money/personal-finance/taxes/articles/2017-04-04/can-you-deduct-alternative-medicines-on-your-taxes ..

I wonder if alternate medical techniques might, by extension, fall under this umbrella?

Dear Ones,

CONSPIRACY THEORY: NANOBOTTING OF PAST PRESIDENT OBAMA SO THAT MONSANTO COULD CONTROL THE WORLD!

Hate Bomb Malware

I had the weirdest dream in 2013, that past President Obama had been nanoteched up with a nanobot that pulled in a carefully thought out Army-Navy spy satellite anti-Jihad black ops program, a form of psychic-cyber mind control aimed at terrorizing Muslims into believing that, if they felt lovingly toward their Imams and the men in their mosques, then a bomb would explode in their hearts, and kill everyone in the mosque.

That a rogue Army-Navy guy … a Republican, maybe? … had got hold of the program, and, after bickering with lobbyists from the blue chip stock companies, settled on quite a good deal with Monsanto …

Link: “Monsanto Protection Act: Does the Monsanto Protection Act create a ‘precedent-setting limitation on judicial review of genetically-engineered crops’?” … https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/monsanto-protection-act/ ..

Result of which was nanobotting of the president, who, according to this wild nightmare, could not get out of office without selling the world food supply to Monsanto. Result being the Monsanto Protection Act rider.

Talk about Snopesville. I will never eat arugala again.

Anyway but, ever since then I have felt for past President Obama. Who in the world is not affected by that darned notion that we will be dead in the water if we truly love someone?

PSYCHIC CRIME AND BLACK OPS: ARE THESE AGAINST INTERNATIONAL LAW?

Rules of War: Do Not Target Civilians

I have been reading about the Rules of War …

Link: “What are the rules of war and why do they matter?” by International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC),19 October 2016 … https://www.icrc.org/en/document/what-are-rules-of-war-Geneva-Conventions ..

I found out that it is against international law for civilians to be targeted in warfare. As Ascension proceeds, the world is rising to telepathic Awareness. Understanding of the nature of the noosphere, and of the formation and movement of thought forms throughout the noosphere, is no longer limited to a few select people with clair abilities …

Link: “Boomerang Effect of Evil Thought Forms,” by the Theosophists, published on 11 May 2015 …  https://wp.me/p2Rkym-3cX ..

Our Thought Forms Affect Everyone on Earth

Now everyone on Earth is beginning to understand that the thought forms we think affect everyone else on Earth. The Butterfly Effect has confirmed this notion, although it has not yet been taken to heart, on a wide scale, in a positive sense, and its implications with regard to the collective, worldwide clouds of thought, both conscious and unconscious, have yet to be fully utilized.

Global Latitudinal Impact of Thought Forms Carried by Circulating Electric Charge That Precedes Dawn and Follows Sunset

About Thought Forms. Thought forms are everywhere on Earth. These thought forms have an electromagnetic component; what is termed in the School of Theosophy manas (mind) and kama (desire). –from Citation: “Thought Forms,” by Annie Besant and Charles Webster Leadbeater, 1905, pp 19-20. Through intuition I would add that manas corresponds to the electric field, and kama to the magnetic force (the two making up electromagnetism).

I say this because I have read about that electricity is important in the function of the neurons which comprise the human nervous system; and that desire has a magnetic quality of attracting to oneself the object of desire. As well, through the practice of yoga I have found that building the human magnetic force results in good luck and charismatic appeal; loss of this built-up magnetic force has the opposite effect. (This points up the importance of practicing yoga daily.)

Personal Experience of Inrushing Thought Forms Before Dawn and Just After Sunset. I have personal psychic intel regarding an inrushing of thought forms into my own mental bodies just before sunrise; I experience this so strongly that I find it uncomfortable to be sleeping till sunrise. I find it easier to deal with the jumbled influx of other people’s thought forms while wide awake and either standing or sitting, so that my spine is erect.

I have also noticed that thought forms carrying negative emotions are more likely to swoop into my mind just after sunset. Because being near the computer screen and accompanying electronics weakens my personal electromagnetic field, making it more susceptible to impingement by these negative thought forms from other people, I generally stay away from my computer and other electronics in the evening after sunset.

It must be that the electric component of thought forms causes them to be carried along with the circulating electric charge that precedes sunrise and follows sunset on Earth. If this be true, then thought forms targeted at an Islamic nation are carried by the latitudinally circulating electric charge that follows sunset, from the Middle East, through the semi-somnambulent, prime time television watching nations, and back to their point of origin within a 24-hour period. Then, they continue circulating through the noosphere, day after day.

Scientific Research on Earth’s Circulating Electric Field. Here is what science I could muster to back up what I learned through electromagnetic field (EMF) clair sensitivity  …

Earth’s Electric Ring Current. “A ring current is an electric current carried by charged particles trapped in a planet’s magnetosphere. It is caused by the longitudinal drift of energetic (10–200 keV) particles. … Earth’s ring current is responsible for shielding the lower latitudes of the Earth from magnetospheric electric fields. It therefore has a large effect on the electrodynamics of geomagnetic storms. The ring current system consists of a band, at a distance of 3 to 8 RE  … [Earth radius], which lies in the equatorial plane and circulates clockwise around the Earth (when viewed from the north). The particles of this region produce a magnetic field in opposition to the Earth’s magnetic field and so an Earthly observer would observe a decrease in the magnetic field in this area …. The negative deflection of the Earth’s magnetic field due to the ring current is measured by the Dst index.

“The ring current energy is mainly carried around by the ions, most of which are protons. However, one also sees alpha particles in the ring current, a type of ion that is plentiful in the solar wind. In addition, a certain percentage are O+ oxygen ions, similar to those in the ionosphere of Earth, though much more energetic. This mixture of ions suggests that ring current particles probably come from more than one source.” –from Link: “Ring Current” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ring_current … CC BY-SA 3.0 Unported

Increased Density of Eastward Electric Field Just Before Dawn. Apparently there may be a similar depletion of equatorial plasma density, accompanied by a large electric field increase just before dawn. –from Link: “Observations of the generation of eastward equatorial electric fields near dawn,” by M. C. Kelley, F. S. Rodrigues, R. F. Pfaff, and J. Klenzing, in Ann. Geophys., 32, 1169–1175, 2014 … www.ann-geophys.net/32/1169/2014/
doi:10.5194/angeo-32-1169-2014 … © Author(s) 2014. CC Attribution 3.0 License … https://www.ann-geophys.net/32/1169/2014/angeo-32-1169-2014.pdf … Received: 18 November 2013 – Revised: 17 July 2014 – Accepted: 25 August 2014 – Published: 19 September 2014 ..

Increased Density of Eastward Electric Field for An Hour After Sunset. There is decreased equatorial plasma density and increased density in the eastward electric field for about an hour after sunset. –from Citation: “Ionospheric Space Weather: Longitude Dependence and Lower Atmosphere Forcing,” edited by Timothy Fuller-Rowell, Endawoke Yizengaw, Patricia H. Doherty, Sunanda Basu (in Google Books) … See: 12.1. Introduction, paragraph 4

Will Humankind Rise Up Against ‘Black Ops’?

As humankind begins to understand the effect ‘black ops’ such as conspiracy theory malware that subverts Islam for the sake of corporate oil interests, will we rise up against psychic hate crimes, in the same way that we speak out against hate crimes in the physical world?

If putative ‘black ops’ thought forms full of hatred are sent, say, from Los Angeles to the Middle East, then will these thoughts of hatred not damage the minds of all the people along the way, between these two geographic locations? Would this not, in a psychic sense, be an infringement of the international law that civilians not be targeted in warfare?

SOURCES OF VIOLENT THOUGHT FORMS IN OUR WORLD

Whether these thought forms gather momentum or loose it, depends on the daily load of violent thought forms added to or subtracted from the noosphere. This applies especially to …

  • Violence in mass media,
  • Corporate lobbying efforts amongst our government officials,
  • Wars, including black ops, and
  • Hate groups that may pass under the radar in our native lands.

RELIGIOUS RIVALRY AS A CAUSE OF VIOLENCE

In a less strident manner, intergroup rivalry, especially rivalry between religious groups, adds to the daily load of violent thought forms in the noosphere.

By my lights, the great religions of the world might more aptly seek points of interfaith agreement than reasons to begin terrorist campaigns, one against the other, whether through thought forms or through overt acts of war.

WE ARE ONE WORLD

This is one noosphere. Our thought forms create our noosphere. Let us dream of peace, harmony, and unity on our beautiful, blue boat home …

Dear Ones,

ARE CALIFORNIA HOUSING COSTS UNREALISTICALLY HIGH?

Apparently, California housing costs are the highest in America …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office, 17 March 2015 … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

This is odd, because people are less in need of housing in California than elsewhere in the nation, because of the mild climate here. Why are housing prices so high?

Could it be that the housing codes here unrealistic, considering the influx of homeless and migrant workers, (1) and the release of felons onto the community due to inadequate funds to keep them in prison? (2)

EFFECT OF LOS ANGELES WATER PRICES ON HOUSING AFFORDABILITY

Stopgap measures have been initiated to fund desperately needed Los Angeles programs, including skyrocketing water prices, and increases in property taxes for homeowners …

Link: “LA DWP, Other Utilities to Raise Water Rates Because of Drought,” by Mike Reicher, published 20 October 2015, updated … https://www.dailynews.com/2015/10/20/la-dwp-other-utilities-to-raise-water-rates-because-of-drought/ ..

Thus the price of owning a home … which is out of range for the many Californians … has become about twice as high in the last decade … There is the price of the mortgage, about equaled by the increased price of utilities and property taxes.

We cannot afford lawns any more. Many people are taking bucket showers rather than ‘real’ showers. In the streets, under the river overpasses and freeway bridges, on vacant lots and in the parks, the homeless cluster, disconsolate, often drunk on rotgut liquor, posting guards in turn to prevent violence upon their small groups, beyond any hope of shelter.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA EMPLOYMENT OUTLOOK

I would like to take a look at the longer-term effect of the stopgap measures that have been effected, so as to keep the Los Angeles city government running …

Apparently, higher housing prices will attract less jobs to California. This means that people will be less able to afford the homes they have. Those who rent will find home ownership out of reach. And those without homes will be unable to rent …

Link: “Sky-high rents and home prices are making it hard for Southern California businesses to attract workers,” by Andrew Khouri, 22 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/business/la-fi-housing-costs-economy-20180222-story.html ..

WATER SUPPLY MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

Let’s look at water supply to Los Angeles …

Los Angeles is a desert town. Of itself, it is without means to provide water for its population. The water we have is imported from other places, and this may contribute to its cost.

In addition, there is the infrastructure that distributes water throughout Los Angeles. This, like the roads, is aging. Rather than providing a maintenance schedule, we are providing repairs when water mains break. My thought is, our city must not have the revenue for a preventive maintenance schedule for our water distribution system …

Link: “L.A.’s aging water pipes; a $1-billion dilemma,” by Ben Poston and Matt Steven, 16 February 2015 … http://graphics.latimes.com/la-aging-water-infrastructure/ ..

ROAD MAINTENANCE IN LOS ANGELES

How about road maintenance in Los Angeles? Here again, revenues are insufficient for a good road maintenance schedule …

Link: “Poorly maintained roads cost Southern California drivers $2,800 a year,” by Brenda Gazzar, Daily News, published on 17 August 2017; updated, in Los Angeles Daily News …  https://www.dailynews.com/2016/08/17/poorly-maintained-roads-cost-southern-california-drivers-2800-a-year/ ..

LAW ENFORCEMENT IN LOS ANGELES AND IN THE SANTA MONICA MOUNTAINS NATIONAL RECREATION AREA

How about law enforcement? In the cities, I feel, police response is quite good. However, there is the area of the Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area (SMMNRA), which is currently essentially a lawless zone. According to Wikipedia, the SMMNRA comprises 156,671 acres (63,403 ha) …

Map: SMMNRA … http://rimofthevalleycoalition.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/Screen-Shot-2016-02-17-at-6.17.05-AM-1-800×445.jpg ..

I have checked, and there is one ranger assigned to this area. That is, effectively, the police patrol for the entire area.

Thus, lawlessness in the mountains is on the rise, especially in areas with natural water flow, and which are contiguous to populated areas. It reminds me a little of stories of the old days in Los Angeles, when cattle rustlers and horse thieves used to establish hidden outlaw strongholds in the mountains now termed the SMMNRA.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN LOS ANGELES

How about schools in Los Angeles? Our schools are becoming more and more a target for gun-wielding and drug dealing, making an education a risky business in Los Angeles.

SUMMARY REGARDING CITY OF LOS ANGELES PUBLIC SERVICES FUNDING

These four areas: utilities, roads, law enforcement, and education, are lacking revenues for maintenance. I feel these are the domain of government in our country … Where these are lacking, government is lacking. Here in Los Angeles, government is doing a slow tumble. It is unable to perform its basic functions.

I feel, though, that this is not the fault of government. Were revenues available here in Los Angeles, I feel certain government would be eager to do its job. But those revenues are unavailable. Why is this?

CALIFORNIA HOUSING: A TIME OF TRANSFORMATION

We here in Los Angeles are in a time of great import … a time of transformation to the New. This is not just the case here in Los Angeles. All of California, all American, and indeed, all the countries of Earth are in a time of transformation.

Transformation can feel like Apocalypse, or it can feel like a New Beginning. (3) We, the people of Los Angeles, will determine the outcome. Will we pull together and come up with innovative solutions to the housing crisis? Or will we go with the status quo … the slow tumble … the seemingly inevitable downward spiral?

I say, let us look, with a sense of adventure, a sense of the dawn of a new era for humankind, to innovative solutions. For instance …

Might Primitive Housing Techniques Be Useful?

How did the First Nations live, here in Southern California, in days not too long ago? They lived in reed, pole, palm frond, or bark huts, and they survived quite well this way …

Image: Diverse California Indian Dwellings …  http://www.rogueturtle.com/articles/images/nashelter1.jpg ..

How do people get by in Rio de Janeiro, where about a fourth of the population live below the poverty line, and the average per capita income is about $17,700 a year? Many live in very substandard housing, termed favelas ..

Image: Rio de Janeiro favela … https://media.istockphoto.com/photos/inside-a-favela-in-rio-de-janeiro-picture-id504416164 ..

How about in Tijuana, the country of origin of many of our current unhomed population? From what sort of environment are they fleeing, in order to seek a better life for themselves and their families?

Tijuana also has its slum housing, where people use building materials salvaged from landfills to build squatter homes on land with no utility service. Water trucks come round with bottles of water to sell for household use. Sanitation depends on a family’s ingenuity; pit toilets are the norm …

Image: House of cardboard in Tijuana … https://www.gettyimages.com/detail/news-photo/family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-news-photo/149207211#family-inside-their-house-made-with-carboard-at-the-edge-of-a-ravine-picture-id149207211 ..

On Revising the Los Angeles County Housing Code

I feel we here in Los Angeles can do better than this for our people. But we must face facts.

The density of population in Los Angeles is too great for sustainable living. The population of Earth must be spread out more evenly, and ways must be found to live off the land, and become self-sustaining, and to house ourselves, in and of ourselves, humbly but efficiently, using local materials. For those that have the skills and strength of character to move out of the cities, and live a sustainable life: Why not consider taking this step?

On Building Additional High Density Housing in Los Angeles

For those that choose to remain here in Los Angeles, we must come to terms with the fact that the housing code in Los Angeles makes it impossible to attract jobs to the area. Where jobs are insufficient, the standard of living will decline. The Catch 22 is this: Where the standard of living has declined, jobs will not be attracted.

So then, what is the solution? There is a clue near the end of this article …

Link: “California’s High Housing Costs: Causes and Consequences,” from the Legislative Analyst’s Office … http://www.lao.ca.gov/reports/2015/finance/housing-costs/housing-costs.aspx ..

The article suggests building more high density housing in California’s beach towns. I agree that this would help solve the problem. But in order to effect this solution, we must change the housing codes.

The Los Angeles Plan for Housing the Homeless Now Underway

Los Angeles has a plan for housing the homeless …

Link: “A plan to house L.A.’s homeless residents could transform parking lots across the city,” by Doug Smith, 9 February 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-parking-lots-housing-20180209-story.html ..

This plan is a laudable step in the right direction. Yet it is running into snags because of local fractiousness. People do not want the homeless as their neighbors.

The $2 Billion Bond to Help House California’s Homeless Held Up by Lawsuit

I see also that a $2 billion bond to help house California’s homeless, approved by California voters two years ago, is tied up in lawsuits regarding mental health care bills as yet unpaid …

Link: “2 billion to help house California’s homeless isn’t being spent — and no one knows when it will be,” by Liam Dillon, 1 March 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/politics/la-pol-ca-homeless-housing-bond-stalled-20180301-story.html ..

The HUD Plan to Provide $2 Billion Nationwide for the Homeless

On the other hand, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) has announced a plan to provide $2 billion for the homeless, so this may to some degree ameliorate the homeless situation in California …

The Plan to House the Homeless in Guest Houses in Los Angeles County 

Los Angeles County is running a pilot program offering housing assistance for homeless housed in guest houses in property owners’ back yards …

Link: “L.A. County wants to help build guest houses in backyards — for homeless people,” by Gale Holland, 11 April 2018 … http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-tiny-house-20180411-story.html ..

If successful, this might help reduce the population density in the City of Los Angeles, and help relieve concomitant issues to do with the homeless population in the City.

Employment Opportunity for the Skilled Homeless: Building That Guest Home in Los Angeles County? I would like to suggest, as well, the building of ‘Tiny Homes’ to benefit from this program, if it turns out to be approved. Perhaps this would boost employment in Los Angeles Country? Perhaps the homeless who have handyman skills might help with building additional guest homes there? Could it be that the State of California might offer financial incentives for such projects?

An Additional Idea; High Density Housing in Los Angeles County, with Busing to Jobs

If local resistance proves impossible to overcome, let us consider building high density housing in rural areas, in Los Angeles County, and providing buses to the nearest employment opportunities.

Repurpose Unprofitable Motels and Hotels as Housing for Homeless? For instance, old motels or hotels, that are proving economically not feasible, might be low-entry-cost ways for the Los Angeles County to house the homeless.

Well, that is all for now.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This blog is mostly a ‘what if’ based on ruminations about ‘psy in the sky’ regarding the CIA and the drug trade in America. It presents various putative scenarios, along with putative negative and positive outcomes …

CONSPIRACY THEORY ALLEGATIONS OF CIA DRUG TRADING IN DECADES PAST

I was reading an article in Wikipedia about allegations of CIA drug trading in decades past …

Link: “Allegations of CIA drug trafficking,” in Wikipedia …  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegations_of_CIA_drug_trafficking ..

THE DEFEAT OF THE WAR ON DRUGS?

I have heard, here and there, that the United States is ‘losing the war on drugs’, at least in terms of the current fight strategy. For instance, here is an article from Stanford University on the topic …

Link: “The United States War on Drugs – Stanford University” …  https://web.stanford.edu/class/e297c/poverty_prejudice/paradox/htele.html ..

RHETORICAL QUESTION: WHAT IF THE CIA WERE TO SEEK TO MONOPOLIZE THE DRUG TRADE IN THE UNITED STATES?

I began to pose the rhetorical question: What if the CIA, discouraged by losing ground in the war on drugs, were to begin dealing in drugs itself, as a way of wresting power from the drug cartels and the drug lords?

Overview: Potential Negative Outcomes

Here is what I feel about that …

  • The people of the United States would begin to live in fear of the CIA, just as they now live in fear of the drug cartels and the drug lords.
  • Money from drug sale profits would flow into the CIA coffers first, and from there to other parts of the government. We might anticipate a greater than proportionate share might stay with the CIA, making it a wealthy … perhaps even the wealthiest? … branch of government.
  • The CIA might accrue unto itself so much power, that it would become ‘top-heavy’, setting the balance of the democratic process off-kilter.
  • There would thus arise a chance that our government would move from a democratic process, to fascism, such as that promoted by the Italian National Fascist Party leader Benito Mussolini, who ruled Italy from 1922 to 1943; in 1925 he established a dictatorship there. In our case, it is likely that the head of the CIA would become America’s first dictator.

Putative Use of Released Felons as ‘Soldiers’ and Drug Runner for the CIA: Potential Negative Outcomes

The CIA has unique powers, even now, to coerce local law enforcement to accede to its expectations. As it attempted to gain hegemony over the drug trade in the United States, there might be inroads on America’s legal systems along these lines …

  • The headiness of the profits flowing from the people of the United States, and into the coffers of the CIA, would contradict the mandate of the CIA to educate our children and adults about the evils of drugs.
  • The CIA might employ felons released from our prisons, when their time is up, as strong-arm ‘soldiers’ and drug runners. These might be granted CIA ID cards.
    • Having cards, and having experienced previous lives of crime, they might continue with lives of crime, and evade retribution by law enforcement in our towns and cities through immunity granted them by their CIA ID cards.
    • As released felons are more likely to have HIV than the general population, and are more likely to have a history of child molestation, we could anticipate an increase in the HIV-infected population in towns where they operated.
    • Especially, we could anticipate the children being infected with HIV. As children with HIV are not able to have children, the populations of the towns where the CIA ‘soldiers’ worked might be anticipated to have zero population growth in 25.5 years (that is, in a generation).
  • These felon ‘soldiers’ might attempt to addict virtually all Americans with drugs, possibly through our drinking water, or through bottled water sold in stores, so as to increase the CIA’s customer base.
    • This would result in downtime and a decrease in America’s available man-hours.
    • If our drinking water were poisoned with drugs, then we might have deaths of newborns, toddlers, invalids, and seniors … in other words, of vulnerable parts of our population, because of the poisoned water.

Long-Term Potential Negative Outcomes: Decentralization of Government and Establishment of Drug Warlords Owing Fealty and Tribute to the CIA

Here is a ‘long view’ of the strategy …

  • The chance would arise that small towns across the United States would become like feudal holdings, whose law would be determined by profit rather than law and order.
    • Each of our towns might be ‘captured’, as it were, by local CIA released felon ‘soldiers’. Such ‘captured’ towns might be envisioned to be warlord strongholds, much like those of some despotic African warlords. These feudal holdings would owe fealty and ‘tribute’ to a Central Intelligence Agency on the East Coast.
  • With time, centralization of power on the East Coast would deteriorate, What would remain would be local warlord strongholds, ruled by the released felons. The manner of decentralization might be like the expansion of farming culture from the East Coast of the United States, to the West Coast, only in reverse, like this …
  • Due to the addiction of the population, and the decrease in available manpower because of HIV infection, it would become more difficult for each locality to meet its agricultural supply needs.
    • We might expect, for example, struggles with starvation in lean years.
    • We might anticipate food being held by warlord strongholds, and distributed by them. Granaries are an example of food power accretion in this manner.
    • We might anticipate raids by release felons, living in mountainous areas, upon the flatland communities, with concomitant fighting and bloodshed.
    • We might expect, as food supplies became more scarce, that the population would rely less on drugs, because of their expense, so as to set aside enough food supplies. As this began to happen, then the power of the drug lords might wain, as their wealth dwindled.
      • This might give our towns an opportunity to re-establish democratic process and civil law, through overthrowing the warlords.

ALTERNATIVE STRATEGIES

As I did not much like my line of inquiry and investigation of the above scenario, I would like to present two alternative strategies, with regard to the war against drugs in America.

A Substitute Plan for the CIA to Garner Money for Our Government by Nationalizing and Administering Tobacco Sales, with Doubled Taxes

As things stand, it is illegal for the CIA to engage in business in America. As mentioned above, the concern is that the resultant monopoly and hegemony would erode our Constitutional liberties and threaten our democratic way of life.

However, if our leadership felt that the situation were such that this law must be contravened, then I would suggest that the CIA begin to sell some commodity other than drugs. One such commodity might be tobacco.

From 2000 to 2010, Americans spend about $100B annually on illegal drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine, according to the RAND Drug Policy Research Center for the Office of National Drug Control Policy. This is the most recent figure I have on the market value of illegal drugs in the United States, so I will go with this.

Link: “Americans Spent About A Trillion Dollars On Illegal Drugs In The Last Decade,” by Matt Ferner, 13 March 2014, in Huffington Post … https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/13/americans-trillion-dollars-drugs_n_4943601.html ..

The retail value of 2017 annual tobacco sales in the United States was about $121B …

Link: “Market value of tobacco in the United States from 2013 to 2020 (in million U.S. dollars),” by Jan Conway, 20 February 2020, in Statista: The Statistics Portal” … https://www.statista.com/statistics/491709/tobacco-united-states-market-value/ ..

Looking at these two figures: 2017 annual tobacco sales at $121B, and 2010 estimated annual illegal drug sales at $100 billion, we might consider these to be roughly equal.

Thus the CIA might expect to profit as much from the nationalization of tobacco sales, as it might from sales of recreational drugs, were it to double the tax on tobacco sales.

There would be other upsides to this strategy as well …

  • Like recreational drug use, tobacco use causes health risks. However, I feel that increased use of tobacco might not damage the decision-making ability of people as much as drug use while they are in the workplace. Thus our workforce might more easily maintain its competitive edge in the global economy.
  • As it would have no financial incentive to promote addiction to recreational drugs, the CIA could, without quandary, set aside part of its profits from the sale of tobacco, to educate children and adults on the danger of using drugs, and to offer drug rehab programs. (However, education on the health risks of tobacco might suffer.)
  • There might be less deaths of newborns, toddlers, invalids, and seniors were we to avoid addicting the overall United States population by drugging drinking water (as in the hypothetical instance above)
  • The CIA would not need to use released felons to sell tobacco; they could simply nationalize tobacco sales, and double the tax on them. Instead, released felons might be steered in the direction of employment in less populated areas, such as forestry or fishing. Thus the danger of infecting our schoolchildren with HIV, through use of released felons who may have been infected with HIV in prison, might be mitigated.

A Preferable Alternate Strategy: Legalization and Taxation of Recreational Drugs

I suggest a second alternate strategy, that of legalizing and taxing recreational drugs. I have discussed the benefits of this strategy in a prior blog …

Link: “What Could We Expect in Federal, State and Local Revenue Increases if Recreational Drugs Were Legalized?” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 20 April 2018; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-8yL ..

To recap that article, the primary benefits of the strategy are …

  • $686.2B estimated annual net improvement in the federal bottom line, and
  • $17B estimated annual improvement in the State and local bottom line due to ‘sin tax’ increases

This strategy, then, would bolster the United States economy by providing a good deal of new money for government services, in addition to money for education and rehabilitation in the arena of drug use.

Were it to be implemented along with a strategy of circumventing, insofar as possible, the presence of HIV-infected child molesters in our small towns, the combined strategy would mitigate the timeline of the AIDS pandemic, allowing a slowdown during which an AIDS-resistant American population could develop. This, then, would mitigate manpower diminution in our next generation, about 25 years from now.

This strategy would not require that the CIA contravene its edict to protect the American people’s democratic way of life. Nor would it raise the threat of fascism or dictatorship taking hold in the United States.

Thus the people of American, raised with a healthy regard for the Declaration of Independence and our United States Constitution, might happily continue on, in a restful state of mind, and in what they understandably consider to be their right to pursue personal happiness during their lifetimes.

Consequently, we might confidently anticipate our American economy holding its own in the coming decades, very much in step with the other nations of the world.

What Could We Expect in Federal, State and Local Revenue Increases if Recreational Drugs Were Legalized? . by Alice B. Clagett *

  • MORE INFORMATION

Dear Ones,

$27.8B FEDERAL DRUG CONTROL ANNUAL EXPENSE

According to Forbes, the war on drugs costs the United States over $78 billion a year

Link: “Doc Series ‘The Trade’: The War On Drugs Costs The U.S. Over $78B A Year,” by Dana Feldman, contributor, in Forbes, 9 February 2018 …  https://www.forbes.com/sites/danafeldman/2018/02/09/doc-series-the-trade-the-war-on-drugs-costs-the-u-s-over-78b-a-year/#3076314a2c1b .. 

However, this includes addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity in addition to federal drug control expense. As it is the federal drug control expense that would be curtailed by legalization, I looked that up. The federal drug control expense for 2018 is estimated to be $27.8 billion dollars … That would mean the other costs … addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity … tally about $50.2 billion dollars a year.

Link: “Total federal drug control spending in the United States from FY 2013 to FY 2020 (in million U.S. dollars),” by Matej Mikulic, 23 January 2020, in Statista: The Statistics Portal … https://www.statista.com/statistics/618857/total-federal-drug-control-spending-in-us/ ..

$132B ESTIMATED ANNUAL INCREASE IN TAX REVENUES FROM NATIONWIDE LEGALIZATION OF MARIJUANA

According to the Washington Post, nationwide legalization of marijuana might result in $132 billion tax revenues annually

Link: “Post Nation: Study: Legal marijuana could generate more than $132 billion in federal tax revenue and 1 million jobs,” by Katie Zezima, 10 January 2018 …  https://www.washingtonpost.com/national/2018/01/10/study-legal-marijuana-could-generate-more-than-132-billion-in-federal-tax-revenue-and-1-million-jobs/?utm_term=.dee696c70135 ..

It seems to me that generation of jobs is a moot point in the above article, since the jobs are already there, in our economy, but just not included in the job statistics. Further, income tax revenue from legalization of these jobs is included as part of the $132 billion revenue figure in the above article.

So, the important figure there is the $132 billion annual revenue for nationwide legalization of marijuana, I note this figure takes into account payroll tax deductions, a retail sales tax of 15 percent, and business tax revenues, which seems appropriate to me. I note also they are calculating federal revenue rather than state or local revenue (i.e., ‘sin taxes’).

$708.6B ESTIMATED INCREASE IN TAX REVENUES FROM NATIONWIDE LEGALIZATION OF ALL RECREATIONAL DRUGS

I was unable to find comparable estimates for generation of revenue from legalization of sales of all categories of recreational drugs, including marijuana, cocaine, heroin, and other recreational drugs. However, this may be estimated as follows:

According to a 2010 Cato Institute report, the ratio of tax revenues for legalization of all drugs, to tax revenues for legalization of marijuana, was 46.7B : 8.7B. For these data, see …

Link: “Commentary: Making an Economic Case for Legalizing Drugs,” by Jeffrey Miron and Katherine Waldock. This article appeared in The Philadelphia Inquirer on 3 October 2010 … https://www.cato.org/publications/commentary/making-economic-case-legalizing-drugs ..

Plugging this ratio into the more recent estimate of $132B annual marijuana revenue, we get:

46.7B / 8.7B = X / 132B  … and

X = $708.6B … X being the current estimated annual revenues for legalization of all drugs nationwide.

$686.2B ESTIMATED ANNUAL NET IMPROVEMENT IN THE FEDERAL BOTTOM LINE

This estimate of $708.6B may be on the high side. However, going with this figure, and using the prior bolded figures, let’s consider what federal revenue changes might take place if all recreational drugs were legalized nationwide.

  • The current $50.2 billion dollar cost for addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity would stay roughly the same.
  • The current $27.8 billion dollar annual federal drug control expense would be greatly curtailed.
  • The current estimated annual revenues for legalization of all drugs nationwide would be $708.6B.

On the plus side for the federal government are the last two bullets: $27.8B plus $708.6B = a total of $736.4B total ‘fattening of the federal coffers’.

This increase in the federal bottom line might resolve the issue of the first-bullet minus: A portion of the federal increase might be set aside to completely cover the $50.2 billion dollar annual cost for addiction treatment, healthcare, and lost job productivity would stay roughly the same.

This would leave a net improvement in the federal bottom line of $736.4B less $50.2B = net $686.2B. 

$17B ESTIMATED ANNUAL IMPROVEMENT IN THE STATE AND LOCAL BOTTOM LINE DUE TO ‘SIN TAX’ INCREASES

An added plus would be sin taxes on that might optionally be levied by state and local governments. In 2014, state sin taxes for were $32.5B for currently legal activities and products such as alcohol, tobacco, casino, racino, and gaming. The largest category was tobacco at $16.9B.

The retail value of 2017 annual tobacco sales in the United States was about $121B

Link: “Market value of tobacco in the United States from 2013 to 2018 (in million U.S. dollars),” in Statista: The Statistics Portal,” https://www.statista.com/statistics/491709/tobacco-united-states-market-value/ ..

From 2000 to 2010, Americans spend about $100B annually on illegal drugs, including cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and methamphetamine, according to the RAND Drug Policy Research Center for the Office of National Drug Control Policy. This is the most recent figure I have on the market value of illegal drugs in the United States, so I’ll go with this.

Link: “Americans Spent About A Trillion Dollars On Illegal Drugs In The Last Decade,” by Matt Ferner, 13 March 2014, in Huffington Post … https://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/03/13/americans-trillion-dollars-drugs_n_4943601.html ..

Looking at these two figures: 2017 annual tobacco sales at $121B, and 2010 estimated annual illegal drug sales at $100 billion, we might consider these to be roughly equal.

Thus the sin tax on legalized recreational drugs sales might be anticipated to be about what states and local governments receive in annual sin tax for tobacco: that is, about $17B annually.

FEDERAL LEGISLATION THAT MIGHT GET AROUND THE MORAL ISSUE STATES HAVE WITH LEGALIZATION OF DRUGS

This crunching of the figures makes it clear that the most logical thing to do would be to legalize all recreational drugs, and generate federal and state revenues from their sales. However, many people in the United States have strong moral stands on recreational drugs.

In fact, the fury over legalization, or criminalization, of recreational drug use in America today is very similar to the fury over alcohol use that resulted in Prohibition … a ban on alcohol sales and use from 1920 to 1933. As I understand it, criminal activity around ‘bootlegging’ skyrocketed during those years. Then when Prohibition was repealed in 1933, the crime wave abated, and federal and local governments began to benefit from liquor revenues.

I feel we might have the same benefits with regard to recreational drugs in this way …

  • The federal government might legalize all recreational drug use and sales.
  • States might have the power to prohibit recreational drug use and sales, either altogether or in part.
  • Those states that legalize recreational drug use and sales, either altogether or in part, might get the benefit of remuneration by the federal government, based on increased federal revenues from recreational drug sales in their state.
  • Federal remuneration to states that decide to legalize recreational drugs might be earmarked for drug-use-related health care, addiction treatment, and health education for schools, and for drug users and their families.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

United States Call to Action: ‘Homeless Trains’ Like the ‘Orphan Trains’? . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 20 April 2018
Previously titled: ‘Homeless Trains’ Like the ‘Orphan Trains’?

Dear Ones,

I saw an intriguing video about the Orphan Trains that settled orphans (some of them ‘street urchins’ or ‘juvenile delinquents’) from urban environments in farm communities at the turn of the last century …

Link: “West by Orphan Train,” (2014) in IMBd … https://www.imdb.com/title/tt4543530/ ..

I see that the Trump administration has offered 2 billion dollars’ worth of grants to help the homeless …

Link: “US Gives $2B to Help Homeless Amid Plans to Cut Housing Aid,” 11 January 2018 …   https://www.usnews.com/news/best-states/california/articles/2018-01-11/trump-administration-announces-2b-to-help-the-homeless ..

I expect it will take some time for this grant money to filter down into local communities. I have a thought about that …

Might ‘Homeless Trains’ be devised, along the lines of the ‘Orphan Trains’, to resettle the homeless from urban areas into parts of the nation that are in need of labor?

Here is a map showing where the orphans were settled …

Image: “Where the Orphans Went” … https://www.gannett-cdn.com/-mm-/67ca4560bc7bbfb330a680b71514bfe1a319da08/c=0-0-401-301&r=x404&c=534×401/local/-/media/2017/01/27/WIGroup/Sheboygan/636211244698689755–2-Map-where-Children-went.jpg ..

I wonder if this map might be a good starting place for a plan to resettle the urban homeless?

I note also that the ‘orphan train’ children sometimes needed to be resettled in new homes, and sometimes this happened several times to one child. We might anticipate that resettled homeless people might need follow-up and relocation services as well.

  • GAY MARRIAGE, TRANSGENDER, AND UNCHASTE SEX CONGRESS HOSTED BY THE ARCHDIOCESE OF LOS ANGELES

Dear Ones,

As there are wild astral tales about quasi-illegal transgender experiments to make hardened criminals unable to rape, hence releasable from prison … and by the by a better get-by-the-border-stations should they turn to drug running … I did some research on transgender …

TRANSGENDER SUICIDE ATTEMPTS AND SELF MUTILATION INCIDENCE

Here are a few things I just found out: A 2016 study pegged the suicide attempt rate among transgender youth at 30%, and the incidence of self-mutilation such as cutting at 42% …

Link: “High rates of suicide and self-harm among transgender youth,” by Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, in “Science Daily,” 31 August 2016 … https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/08/160831110833.htm ..

There are more statistics on transgender suicide attempts here …

RECENT MURDERS OF TRANSGENDER WOMEN

According to Wikipedia, this is on the rise. There were nearly 60 such murders worldwide in 2017 …

Link: “List of people killed for being transgender,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_people_killed_for_being_transgender ..

PUTATIVE PRISON TRANSGENDER FELON RELEASE EXPERIMENTS

These times are forecast to include cognitive dysfunction, and we can anticipate this may take various twists and turns, including …

  • quasi-Illegal or else ‘out there’, ‘cutting edge’ human social experiments,
  • and a panicky or anxious sense of urgency about the need for them, despite scant outcomes research,

These types of human social experiments may be a symptom of the cognitive dissonance for those facing anxiety attacks while in leadership positions.

There are several caveats in the above putative cases …

  • There is the danger to their life that transgender felons would face on being released from prison, due to social violence, as well as self-inflicted violence.
  • There is the danger to the health of the patient, unless the operation is performed by a qualified surgeon.
  • There is a possible criminal penalty for the person performing the operation, if he or she is not qualified, or if the operation is illegal in his state.
  • And there is an element of coercion in the idea that a hardened felon can only be released from prison if they agree to mutilation of their bodies.

COMPARING SUCH PUTATIVE MODERN-DAY EXPERIMENTS WITH NAZI HUMAN EXPERIMENTATION

My own feeling is that those considering social experiments in these times, especially quasi-illegal social experiments, might wish to compare their plans for bold social change with the Nazi human experiments undertaken during the Third Reich …

Link: “Nazi human experimentation,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nazi_human_experimentation ..

THE NUREMBERG CODE, AND MODERN-DAY LESSONS FROM THE NUREMBERG TRIALS

I took a look at the Nuremberg code, and in hasty perusal judge that the type of experiment described above violates that code … See if you agree …

Link: “Nuremberg Code,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nuremberg_Code ..

It was because the Nazi war criminals broke the Nuremberg Code that they were brought to trial between 1945 and 1949 …

Link: “Nuremberg Trials,” 29 January 2010, updated … http://www.history.com/topics/world-war-ii/nuremberg-trials ..

Thus, it seems possible that quasi-illegal or ‘boldly on the edge’ human social experiments run the risk of being tried by the United States Justice System, or by the International Court of Justice, as violating the Nuremberg Code, and as violating social standards of justice for humankind.

CONSEQUENTIALISM AND SOCIETAL EXPECTATIONS

Consequentialists feel that a good cause makes the use of any means … even morally ‘bad’ means … acceptable. But historically, society takes a dim view of this. The societal backlash for those espousing Consequentialism has, in times past, been quite severe.

Hence, the Nuremberg Trials, which dealt every harshly with the idealistic notions that the Nazis had of building a great world order on the backs of those they deemed genetic rejects and sent to their deaths in prison camps.

Even so it might be today; as one brilliant Consequentialist notion after another hits the fast-moving fan of societal notions of the tried and true.

ON SINKING TO FERAL INSTINCTS IN THE NAME OF A BETTER WORLD ORDER

In addition to the above, one might consider whether one’s actions, during the Ascension process, are largely humanitarian in nature, or whether they may be jumping the gun, or even whether they may involve … or be perceived as involving … the uncaging and expression of one’s own feral instincts …

  • such as the desire to project fear onto others; to make others fearful, so as to feel less fearful oneself
  • or the desire to prove one’s manhood by emasculating other men viewed as predatory and dangerous

ON STICKING WITH THE TRIED AND TRUE

Why not stick with the tried and true for now? Why not stick together, as one loving, world community? Why act out our fears and our savage instincts? Why listen to the left brain at all, during these times? When we can let intuition lead us through every peril, and grace preserve us and all those we love, in joy and peace, and Light?

While most likely irrelevant, this background reading sparked my imagination …

Community Health: Update on the HIV / AIDS Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

HIV AND AIDS SOCIAL STIGMA

A great deal has been written about HIV and AIDS social stigma, and the degree of fear that the thought of testing and possible diagnosis engenders. Exposure to the HIV virus separates people from the mainstream of society, because of the considerable social stigma around the disease.

WIDESPREAD NATURE OF HIV INFECTION

Annual Medicare Tests Available

Yet Medicare now offer annual HIV tests … which, to me, indicates the widespread nature of this infection today …

Link: “HIV Screenings,” in Medicare Coverage … https://www.medicareinteractive.org/get-answers/medicare-covered-services/preventive-care-services/medicare-coverage-of-hiv-screenings ..

Decrease in Criminal Penalty for Intentional HIV Transmission in California

The fact that intentional exposure of another person to HIV infection has been reduced from a felony to a misdemeanor also indicates the widespread nature of the infection …

Link: “Knowingly exposing others to HIV will no longer be a felony in California,”  by Eli Rosenberg, 10 October 2017 … https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/to-your-health/wp/2017/10/09/knowingly-infecting-others-with-hiv-is-no-longer-a-felony-in-california-advocates-say-it-targeted-sex-workers/ ..

California is in advance of other United States and of other countries in this; in many places, intentional transmission of HIV is a serious criminal offense …

Link: “Criminal Transmission of HIV,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Criminal_transmission_of_HIV ..

Surge in HIV Home Testing After Charlie Sheen Show in 2017

Another indicator is the surge in purchase of the Oraquick saliva test for exposure to the HIV virus, that took place after a Charlie Sheen sow in May of 2017 …

Link: “Surge in Home Testing Sales Followed Charlie Sheen’s HIV Disclosure,” by Rachael Rettner Live Science, 22 May 2017 … https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/surge-in-home-testing-sales-followed-charlie-sheens-hiv-disclosure_us_5923681ce4b03b485cb4467e ..

WIDESPREAD AVAILABILITY OF HIV HOME TEST KITS

I note that the Oraquick saliva test for HIV exposure is available near the pharmacy window of the Rite-Aid, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, and Target stores now, for about $40. I see that a three-pack is available through Amazon.com. That, to me, is another indicator of the widespread nature of the pandemic in the world today.

I have read that the Oraquick test, though very available, speedy, and painless, is only about 90% effective in diagnosing HIV infection.

There is a more effective test … I think I read that it is 98% effective in diagnosing HIV infection … called the Home Access HIV-1 Test, currently available from Walgreens and Amazon,  This test involves pricking the finger for a blood test; the test is sent to a lab for diagnosis. This test is more pricey (both to buy, and because of the cost of the lab test), a little less available, and more effective than the Oraquick test … 98% or more in accuracy, compared to about 90% accuracy, as I understand it.

Link: “Should I Get Tested for HIV?” in Planned Parenthood …   https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/stds-hiv-safer-sex/hiv-aids/should-i-get-tested-hiv ..

NEW PRE-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS TO PREVENT HIV INFECTION

There’s a new method of Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis … PrEP … that has apparently proven effective in reducing HIV infection … a daily pill that is 90% effective in this regard.

Link: “What Is PrEP,” by Planned Parenthood … https://www.plannedparenthood.org/learn/stds-hiv-safer-sex/hiv-aids/prep ..

ALTERNATIVE HEALTH: CAN HIV PROGNOSIS BE COMPARE TO THAT FOR OTHER VIRUSES?

From the field of alternative health lore, there is a thought that HIV exposure may not be a fatal diagnosis, but rather, more like the common cold, or like other viral STDs, in that it may cause higher blood titers (technically, a diagnosis of AIDS) when the immune system is low, and that the titers may return to normal as the immune system returns to normal strength.

A naturopathic doctor, or your local health food store, may be of help in bolstering the immune system, in the event you have been exposed to the HIV virus, and suffer an outbreak of symptoms previously termed AIDS.

OCCULT LORE: EFFECT OF SOCIAL STIGMA ON THE IMMUNE SYSTEM

From an interdimensional point of view, it seems to me likely that the ‘death-sentence’ nature of HIV exposure in the 1980s in America, had to do with the very severe social stigma regarding alternative lifestyles and drug use in those days. In other words, the opinions of the masses of people in the United States, in a way, doomed those exposed to HIV in the 1980s. An understanding of effect of social mores on the immune system depends on understanding of the nature and potency of thought forms. This is occult lore not widely know as yet. The best reference I’ve found so far, regarding this, is …

Citation: “Chapter VII: Thought Forms,” in “The Astral Body and Other Astral Phenomena,” compiled by Arthur E. Powell, Theosophical Publishing House, Wheaton, IL. Copyright The Theosophical Publishing House, London, Ltd. 1965.

The solution to this aspect of the severity of the HIV pandemic has to do with public education regarding tolerance of diversity, and development of a compassionate attitude toward our fellow human beings.

California: Prison Reform and Childhood Mental Filters . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

I just read a thought provoking article. This short article is a great read …

Link: “Are We Chicken about Prison Reform?” by Steven Greenhut, 25 July 2013 …   http://humanevents.com/2013/07/25/are-we-chicken-about-prison-reform/ ..

There is a point I liked especially, about how California Proposition 2, which decried cramped quarters for chickens, passed and became law in 2008.

Yet many prison inmates live in Security Housing Units (SHUs) — 7½-by-12-foot windowless concrete cells. It is not like they have a bookshelf in there, for furthering their education. Au contraire.

Basically, we Californians are interested in prison reform for chickens, and we are overlooking the humans in the same predicament.

Compute, compute?

It seems to me, the thing that might make the most difference might be a simple shift of emphasis, from punishment to rehabilitation, instruction in a well-paying trade, and a chance for education in the realm of spirit, whether it be a traditional faith, meditation, or another path of their choosing.

And then, why make upset, angry men more upset, more angry? Why not allow conjugal or even sex worker visits, as in Mexican prisons? We could quibble over details, but the thought’s the thing. Upliftment, a chance to live a happy life on the outside.

Remember when we were children, and a quarrel came up? Was there a time when a parent smacked you? What did you feel? Did you feel like being a productive member of your family? Or did you feel like hitting your parent back?

The very next step, psychologically speaking, is ‘projection’ … the little child walks out and smacks the dog ….

So smacking just makes matters worse. Why should we Americans continue an ineffective mental filter instilled in us before the age of 5? We’re brighter than that!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Call to Action: Public Coin-Operated Showers for the San Fernando Valley . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 13 December 2017
Previously titled: Public Coin-Operated Showers for the San Fernando Valley

Dear Ones,

I would like to suggest to laundromat owners and maybe gas station owners in the San Fernando Valley that they consider adding a few public coin-operated showers to their facilities. This would provide a new income base for these ongoing businesses.

Coin-operated showers are being successfully operated as part of a laundromat in Durango, Colorado, for instance. There, I feel they serve the large population of housed people who live on the dirt roads in rural areas, and have no public water system to their property.

Here in the San Fernando Valley, coin-operated showers would serve the large homeless population.

An alternative would be free-standing toilet facilities with public coin-operated showers, similar to those found in parks and recreation areas in California and Colorado.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Upcoming Timeline Splits . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

As you may know, timelines are constantly splitting and merging. Each of us throws off hundreds of timelines, creating hundreds of alternate worlds, every nanosecond.

But the question is: In which timeline will we place our Awareness? For in all other timelines, there will be but a pale facsimile of our true selves … a ‘placemarker’ that but appears, to those who know us, to be our true self. These timelines Lightworkers term ‘placemarker timelines’.

Thus, for the myriad timelines each of us creates, there appear to be the same cast of characters. The phenomenal world appears to be true, consistent, and ‘real’.

Yet from the perspective of the Soul, of the Eternal Now, timelines are but Lila … the Divine Play … the ‘world illusion’ … the interactive toy through which God guides our budding Souls to greater Soul awareness.

So then, to return to the beginning: Timelines splits and timeline merges are constantly occurring. And I am thinking that there may be some aggregation by job description for timeline splits in the coming year.

For instance, by placing Awareness on politics, we momentarily align with the major timeline of politicians …

I also noticed, with regard to criminals, law enforcement, and justice, that there is kind of a timeline tango going on, in which the criminal ‘stimulus’ is locked with the ‘response’ of the law and of the justice system.

I feel these timelines will be different from those of people who welcome Ascension, as these will experience less resistance to the changes taking place.

In this, the time of least Light, as we approach Winter Solstice, during this, perhaps the most minimum year of the Solar Minimum, I find myself occasionally addressing the political and criminal timeline, then diverging back out of them.

At the turn of the year, after the Winter Solstice, and as we head on toward the Spring Equinox, I anticipate all Lightworkers will feel a quickening, a lifting up into the New Light, and a freeing up from denser, more temporally extended timelines.

God bless all Lightworkers in this time of curling up with a good read and a cup of warm apple cider! And in my case, a rambunctious kitten …

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Call to Action: Homelessness in the San Fernando Valley . by Alice B. Clagett

Dear Ones,

HOMELESS STATISTICS IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

I read there were about 7,600 homeless in the San Fernando Valley, and 58,000 in LA County as of last year … I read this in:

Link: “Homelessness Increased In Woodland Hills, San Fernando Valley: The rising cost of housing, along with a housing shortage, was acknowledged by officials as a top cause of the homeless problem,” by Alexander Nguyen (Patch Staff) – updated  https://patch.com/california/woodlandhills/homelessness-increased-woodland-hills-san-fernando-valley ..

SCARCITY OF HOMELESS SHELTERS IN THE SAN FERNANDO VALLEY

Because of the influx of homeless into the nearby neighborhoods, I’ve been looking around for homeless shelters in the San Fernando Valley … It seems like shelters for men are scarce. It looks like housing will be built, but maybe is not available yet?

Law enforcement can ask a homeless person to move on, but where will they move to, if no housing resources are available?

ON THE NOTION OF ASSIGNING A PARKING LOT … SUCH AS THE VACANT COSTCO PARKING LOT ON ROSCOE … FOR A TEMPORARY TENT COMMUNITY

I had a thought about the Costco that closed at 21300 Roscoe Blvd in Canoga Park (across from the Salvation Army Store) … it has a big, fenced parking lot which might temporarily be used for tents, if porta-potties and security could be arranged … What do you all think about this possibility?

SMALL POD HOUSING DESIGNED BY VALLEY RESCUE MISSION

Also a possibility, in lieu of or in addition to tenting in a parking lot, might be small pod housing such as that designed by Valley Rescue Mission:

Link: “Local News: These small pods could bring a big solution for LA County’s homeless crisis,” by Susan Abram, sabram@scng.com , Daily News, published: 

NEIGHBORHOOD WATCH AND FOOT TRAFFIC ON OUR PUBLIC STREETS

This is a very difficult topic. For myself, as a Neighborhood Watch captain, I want to help my neighbors keep my neighborhood safe, and at the same time not to trespass on other people’s freedom of movement. People walk up and down our public streets all day long, and that’s fine. It’s when they stop and stay around that residents get uneasy.

LOITERING LAWS IN LOS ANGELES

In response to that, there are loitering laws in LA, both in general and also at schools and places where children generally congregate, but I’ve read that they only apply if a person has criminal intent. Most likely a prior criminal record would figure in.

I’ve read there is also a law against walking onto private property and peeking into the door or window, and that law applies if the property is not abandoned. See:

Link: “PC 647: Loitering,” http://esfandilawfirm.com/crimes/loitering-pc-647/

CAN WE PROVIDE SAFE PLACES FOR THE HOMELESS TO STORE THEIR PROPERTY?

I’ve also read that the City of LA passed law 56.11 last year to the effect that a (presumably homeless) person’s storage of items on sidewalks and parkways and in alleys must be no more than what can fit into the garbage bin … see:

Link: “L.A. council OKs law limiting homeless people’s belongings to what can fit in a trash bin,” by Gale Holland, Contact Reporter, 30 March 2016, 3:42 pm, http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-homeless-belongings-20160331-story.html ..

I also read that the City has no right to put these belongings into the trash:

Link: “Judge Says Los Angeles Has to Stop Taking Homeless People’s Stuff: A new injunction limits the city’s ability to seize and destroy the property of Skid Row residents,” by Elijah Chiland, 14 April 2016, 9:55 am PDT, https://la.curbed.com/2016/4/14/11428886/los-angeles-homeless-property-seizure ..

The same article suggests the need … I would say citywide … for storage facilities for possessions of transient people.

ON WORKING WITHIN THE LAW FOR A SOLUTION TO THE DIFFICULT PROBLEM OF HOMELESSNESS

I guess what I’m trying to say is, as responsible citizens, and taking this difficult problem into consideration, let us work within the spirit of the legal system. As forward-looking people let us look to fresh solutions to the problem of homelessness in Los Angeles.

  • What is really going on, economically, here?
  • How can we tweak the economy to provide jobs for those who want them, but can’t find them?
  • As a concerned community with humane intent, what may we also do for those who don’t want work, or who, for a constellation of reasons, are unemployable?

In the end, I am hoping that these last prove to be few, and that good work and good housing will be found for most.

MY THANKS TO CALIFORNIA FOR ITS POSITIVE REGARD FOR THE UNDERPRIVILEGED

I would like to add that I have traveled here and there in America in recent years, and have found, in general, that California’s attitude toward the underprivileged is a standout in many ways; especially, as regards …

  • positive social action,
  • lack of prejudice, and a positive attitude toward diversity, and
  • desire to abide within the spirit of the law.

For that depth of human kindness, and for our mutual vision of a new tomorrow in this beautiful land, I thank each of you, from the bottom of my heart.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

    • Summary
  • CONCLUSIONS REGARDING THE ISSUE OF REQUIRING SAFE SEX FOR ACTORS IN THE PORNOGRAPHY INDUSTRY

Dear Ones,

I am looking over the propositions on the California ballot today, and have come to some interesting realizations regarding ways to solve the issues we Americans face as a nation today.

THE QUESTION OF SAFE SEX FOR THE PORNOGRAPHY INDUSTRY

In California, Proposition 60 has been put forth, regarding requiring employers to have actors in pornography films use condoms, and to provide vaccines and medical checkups. [This proposition on the 8 November 2016 ballot failed to pass.] This is an issue sidestepped by the California League of Women Voters, whose opinions I value because they reflect my concerns for children’s and women’s rights. So I took a closer look …

SEX WORKERS AND SOCIETAL EXPECTATIONS

There are issues around occupations that do not conform to societal expectations, such as the sex worker industry. The issues are: Should Americans be allowed to view pornography, or is this practice unethical? Ought punitive measures be in place regarding pornography? If so, what punitive measures? For instance, why not just let all the sex workers die of AIDS? That would serve them right, would it not?

These are not thoughts of our conscious minds. Rather, they are upwellings of negative emotion from our subconscious minds.

Many people have learned, in early childhood, that sexual expression needs to be corralled and closeted … in a bedroom, for example. That the sex act needs to be performed quietly, so that no one can hear. That only certain ways of expressing sexuality are ok; others (the list is long) are not ok. In the case of women, ‘that a lady need not express herself through orgasm’. The notion that children may not feel sexual till they reach 16, or 18 (when in fact, children begin to learn about sexuality, and to express it, in very early childhood).

These sexual taboos, which vary from family to family, and from culture to culture, are the source of Soul wounding in early childhood, which imbalances the second chakra and interferes with the function of the heart chakra.

And so, when we consider the issue of sex workers and condoms, we are really dipping into the mire of societal taboos regarding sexuality, and not just dealing with a straightforward issue of what might be good for disempowered sex workers.

BRINGING SEX TABOOS TO THE LIGHT OF CONSCIOUS AWARENESS

Up until recently,  the savvy rhetorician could manipulate societal taboos to win kudos for personal gain … In this way, laws have been passed in America that reinforce early childhood Soul wounding and countermand the common good.

This is a new day on New Earth, and all of us are now able to arrive at better solutions to societal issues. This is because the common person … you and I … are rising to an understanding of the subconscious mind. We can move beyond these subconscious barriers, and on to new, more positive solutions to social issues.

ON DEALING WITH THE PRACTICAL ISSUE OF SEX WORK, INSTEAD OF PROJECTING BLAME

In the case of condoms for sex workers, the subconscious negative burden of America is then notion aforementioned: Why not let them all die of AIDS?

OK, let’s look at that. While the sex worker occupation is socially unacceptable, it is also avidly sought after by both men and women. This has been the case down through history; there were merchants, women, slaves, and ‘canabae’ (1) who were camp followers for the Roman legion, and this has been the case for armies down through history. In a civilian context, this is also true.

In past, this issue has been dealt with in a subconscious context: Our subconscious mind wants to place blame, to pass judgment, regarding this activity. For women, our own husbands and their friends are engaged in this activity. For men, our wives would call it quits were we to come out in favor of this activity, though we may personally find it an attractive prospect. What to do? The answer has been, to project the blame and judgement we feel toward our spouse onto the sex workers.

This act of projection is one of the subconscious mechanisms that are now coming to the light of Awareness. It’s becoming clear that the issues reside within the spousal relationship, between man and wife. And more specifically, they lie in the clearings of the Soul wounding of the second chakra now taking place on Earth through the incoming photonic Light. As these clearings take place, the negative onus of societal expectations rises to our conscious awareness. Thus spouses can begin to speak frankly of the issue of sex work and its utilization by the husband, or by the wife.

In the meantime, there is, for many Americans, still the negative subconscious burden in place. This may be overcome by pointing out the flow-through effect of labeling such an occupation ‘illegal’. Thus we may steer our course with an eye to the common good, rather than to that subconscious bias to which we all fall prey from time to time. Here are the issues at hand:

DISEMPOWERMENT OF SEX WORKERS

In America today, there are laws in place against sex workers. Yet laws are not enforced, as logic would propose, against those who frequent the sex trade.

  • This legal inequity is held in place by the subconscious nature of our disapproval of this occupation, and effected through the subconscious process known as ‘projection’.
  • We are using the legal system to project our negativity towards the sex worker occupation on sex workers, instead of dealing with the issues as husband-wife and parent-child issues.
  • Because of this legal inconsistency, sex workers are among the disempowered in America.

SEX WORKER SAFETY

There is a rising sentiment to protect workers in America. Workers in many occupations are protected by laws regarding worker safety. However, in the case of occupations judged by the public to be unethical, there is no safety protection.

This concept of safety includes, in the case of sex workers, the danger of disease, including eventually fatal disease, danger of physical injury by clients and by pimps, and danger to life itself, as in the case of snuff films.

THE FLOW-THROUGH EFFECT: SEX WORKER SAFETY AND THE COMMON GOOD

Sex workers know that admission of infection by HIV can be fatal; yet sex work invariably leads to infection. For the sake of life and limb, test results are falsified. This, to the sex worker, necessary precaution then puts those who utilize their services at risk of infection.

Thus the danger of disease, including eventually fatal disease, flows through to those that use the services of sex workers, and from there to their spouses, and from there onward to circle of intimate acquaintances of both spouses.

Clair Stories about Women Having Sex with Fitness Instructors

I have had a number of clair reports about M2F sex work through fitness centers, targeting older women, who divorce their husbands, marry a fitness instructor, contract HIV, and are ‘taken to the cleaners’ by the new husband.

Clair Stories about Children Having Sex with Illegal Drug Dealers

Also in the clair realm, there are reports of elementary school children trading M2Child sex for drugs; thus the children are also contracting HIV by junior high school age.

Pornography as Sex Education for Young Adults

Here is another flow-through effect involving children: Pornography films are tools by means of which our young people learn about the sex act. Use of condoms in pornography films would help our young people understand the importance of safe sex practices.

Clair Stories about Sex Workers and Law Enforcement

There are clair stories to the effect that the flow-through effect extends to law enforcement and their spouses, because of widespread practice of unprotected jail rape of sex workers.

Suppression of Data on HIV infection

Data on HIV infection in the United States have been suppressed …

Link: “Compendium: HIV / AIDS Pandemic, and Data Suppression by the Centers for Disease Control,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 10 July 2016; updated … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-5QE ..

Why is this? It is possible that HIV incidence began to step up in 2014, and that many more people are involved than is generally known. Whether this is true, or not, can only be determined when the facts are, by some intrepid Soul in the Centers for Disease Control, finally brought to the light of public scrutiny.

Summary

From this I conclude that  the flow-through effect from sex work involves a broad range of people. It affects men who frequent sex workers. But also, women and children. And possibly many more people than published data have led us to believe.

CONCLUSIONS REGARDING THE ISSUE OF REQUIRING SAFE SEX FOR ACTORS IN THE PORNOGRAPHY INDUSTRY

  • Sex workers frequently act in pornography films for extra income.
  • If they do not practice safe sex, then they will get HIV.
  • If the health of sex workers is not protected, the flow-through groups will get HIV. This might include you and me.
  • And so, it is in our own best interest, and for the common good, that the health of actors in the pornography industry be protected.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

The Chakric Balance of Our Natal Family

It is always true, in our natal families, that there is a certain chakric orientation. And that chakric orientation at first determines the way we look at and evaluate life. In some families, the chakras are very well balanced; and these families have a very fluid way of dealing with life.

In some families a particular chakra will be predominant. And in many people in the world today, one of the primary chakras … one of the first three chakras (the ‘gut brain’ chakras) is dominant. That is because new Souls are always coming onto Earth and trying Earth life. They need to rise in Awareness, from the gut brain into conscious Awareness of the higher chakras. And this takes time.

On Learning the User Manual for the Human Body

At first, when a Soul incarnates as human on Earth, a long train of animal understandings and instincts predominates in their thought forms. But as time goes on and they have many incarnations and much Soul learning, and continue to associate with other human beings, they realize that they have many more choices in this human form than they would have in an animal form, and certainly more so than in mineral or plant form.

It takes time; it takes many incarnations to figure out the user manual for the human body … and all the more so, now that the Awakening is here, because we have many more chakras, many more dimensions, and all the possibilities of the timelines to learn. The ‘owners’ manual’ is by request from our spirit guides and our Teams; we have to ask. It is not written on Earth in any particular way, although there are plenty of hints along the way.

When One of the Gut Brain Chakras Is Predominant in a Natal Family: Example of the Third Chakra

So we are born into a family. And let’s say, just for an example, that the predominant chakra in the family is the third chakra. This is quite commonplace on Earth. The third chakra is about will power; about making one’s way in the world. It has to do with control, and with being controlled.

The third chakra is about will power, about making one’s way in the world. If a child is born into a family where one of the parents is very strongly third chakra, then the child will grow up at first either very strongly third chakra, or very strongly concerned about maintaining his or her own life in the world because the young person feels there are a lot of pushy people around who are exerting their will power as that one parent did. Thus for a child born into a third-chakra family, an important lesson to be learned is to stand one’s ground, so as to maintain one’s place in the world. 

Ways of Expressing Oneself: Assertiveness, Aggressiveness, Submissiveness. So for that child … and for very many of us Lightworkers … it then becomes a question of learning other ways of self-expression; for example, assertiveness rather than aggression or submission.

That whole process of learning diplomatic speech and assertiveness and maintaining one’s own ground is one of the Soul lessons for children born into families where the third chakra predominates, or is imbalanced in some way.

No matter what chakra may predominate in a person’s natal family, there is an understanding that needs to be put forth by the Lightworkers, to the effect that the chakra which predominates for us completely determines our understanding of the world, and further determines the way that the world works for us.

The third chakra has to do with the world of cause and effect; There is the concept of ‘I’ and ‘other’: I do something to someone else. Then I get what I want (or vice versa): Someone else does something to us, and we do not get to do what we want.

How Third Chakra Awareness Plays Out in World Affairs

Leaders of government, defense, corporations, schools, and churches have to deal with the competing demands of various people’s third-chakra energy. Very often, nations use the notion of third chakra in the world. Politics, too, uses the notion as a kind of ‘give and take’ situation where we hold our grounds, and we put forth a strong image before the world so that no one else will try to territorially aggress against us … so that we can maintain our own space in the world, and live well.

Politics and the Common Good. In the realm of politics the same holds true. Lots of times a young politician will go into politics with very strong notions of the common good, and of what they would like to accomplish for the common good while in a term of office. But when they begin to get their feet wet, they begin to understand this ‘give and take’ that takes place because many people are in their third chakra. The lobbyists want this; the corporations want that; grassroots people want something else. The churches want something. The schools want something. Each industrial entity wants something for itself, and the workers there want something else for themselves.

Everybody wants something. And so the question becomes one of balancing ‘this’ against ‘that’ to arrive at as much, in terms of the common good, as can be managed during one’s term of office. It is a give-and-take kind of situation. And it can be daunting unless a person feels very versatile, very resilient, very capable of compromise, and of reaching from ‘this’ to ‘that’ and weighing the consequences, you know?

The 2012 Shift from Causal to Noncausal Perception of Reality

Now there is more going on in the world than that, and has been up until the time of the 2012 Shift. Right about the time of the Shift … in about that time frame … many, many people started coming to higher consciousness, to a state of enlightenment, to Awareness, to enlightenment, to Awakening, and sometimes to a sense of rapture and joy in Cosmic consciousness in the presence of God, to Christ consciousness.

Getting their toes wet are millions of people who are beginning to see the way that things have truly been … people who are in their third chakra and are starting to attain that Awareness have not quite reached the level of the fourth chakra, which is essential to a non-causal view of reality.

Through the fourth chakra, we attain a non-cause-and-effect Weltanschauung … the synchronous reality of God’s grace showering down on Earth and changing things instantaneously.

But until we get there, we go up and down from the third chakra, at the navel point, to the fourth chakra at the heart. Sometimes we are there, and sometimes it seems like everything is hopelessly enmeshed in karma, and especially if we had that kind of upbringing where there is a great deal of respect for the navel point area … for the third chakra and for cause and effect. Even though it is an inferior reality, it was that reality on which we ‘cut our teeth’ as children.

Nanotech Nightmares: The Physical versus the Astral Reality

To get back to this story: In the last decade, many people, observing the play of politics in the United States, have come to an understanding that there are astral realities, similar to the virtual realities of electronics … and to the much vaunted nanotechnology instruments of war … that frighten people who go to the cinema.

There are astral equivalents of these … but far more subtle, more refined … that have been in place all these tens of thousands of years, during the Age of Darkness. It is these astral bots, astral telecommunication devices, astral spy mechanisms, astral remote viewing and remote control of people, and all kinds of scary astral things like that … astral hypnosis, astral karmic forcing of people into a particular ‘zombie’ role in which they do not really want to be, astral mind control … these astral things are very similar to the scary movies that the mass media have been putting out.

The mass media are coming up with this stuff. That is because what the media are putting out has an astral reality, and not necessarily a high-tech corporate or military application, although there are some very crude approximations of this in existence today.

In other words, what may be appallingly real on the astral plane may not necessarily have its equivalent on the physical plane. The truth of the matter is that it is the very subtle machines of war … the subtle astral technology … that is really giving us the willies now because we have noticed it: We call it malware, the mind mud, mind slide, and all kinds of technologies put in place by superior negative astral beings in the many epochs past.

Now we notice it … and now we are freaking out! But it is all over with now! This is the age of the Awakening … the beginning of the Age of Light. It is only because of this is our time of New Beginning, that we are noticing, with our astral eyes, the obsolescing stockpiles of subtle machines of war.

It is not that some groups have suddenly taken over the leadership of our country, or of another country, or of any groups in the country, or of the common man … you and me. It is not like that at all,

As you might term it, we have been ‘Borged up’ … In ‘Star Trek’ terms, our astral forms are cluttered with this malware. That makes us, in a way, not human … seeming to ourselves not to be human, or not in control of ourselves.

That is true in a way, because Earth school is about that … It is about losing some part of our free will through making bad decisions, and then learning from that, and then starting to make good decisions again.

If it were not for the malware, we would not have a chance to learn all that may be learnt. What the malware does is, it creates the opportunity for us to learn more quickly, because it makes every bad decision ten times worse.

On the other hand, we have the blessing of grace, through the higher realms, through our Celestial Ascension Teams, which are always available …. only, we have to ask … and that makes everything 10 times better. We just have to remember to ask our Teams for help.

On Learning That the Heart Is a Safe Place to Be

What sometimes happens, when a young person is born into a family that concentrates on the third chakra … the very strong will power chakra … is that they do not know that they have the choice to move into their heart space. It seems unsafe; while on the other hand, the only safety exists in the heart chakra.

So that is a difficult thing that has to be learned: That we have a choice, and we can make that choice, and then summon the courage, the strength of will to give it a go. And this despite the fact that our family may be ‘on another page’ entirely.

It may be many long years before we can talk meaningfully with our families. We might have to give that up. In fact, we might have to go to other people who already know about assertiveness, and know about following their hearts and having a wonderful life. We might have to let go of the notion of achieving those goals with our natal families.

On Hearing Scary Astral Stories That Come About During Solar Events Without Feeling Fear

Now I would like to talk a little about the astral stories that come about during Solar Events, and how this relates to choosing a chakra.

How to Select a Different Astral Story to Hear. During a Solar Event, there are simultaneous astral stories running in the different dimensions of reality. Choosing to place our Awareness on a chakra is choosing a dimension. Thus placing our Awareness on a particular chakra is like picking a new astral ‘storybook’ to read, a new ‘astral video’ to play out in a lazy way in the background of our consciousness.

Example of Astral Story Changeup During Yesterday’s Geostorm. Something came up yesterday, during the geostorm that was going on. I was having a great time doing my best to practice my multidimensional skills …

I remember at first, when the Solar Storms would come up, I would be stuck in a third chakra dimensional realm, in the cause-and-effect realm, and other people would create astral stories that we were at war, and that nanotechnology had possessed us all, and that we were the mere dupes of a shadow government … that the ‘puppet’ government we saw on the newscasts was not really the government at all.

At first I would go along with it. I would get into a state of fear about it; I would be really scared, because I was starting to notice, in the third dimension, all the constrictions of the realm of cause and effect.

Heart-Centric Politics

I was starting to notice that, when a president gets in office, or a senator or congressman gets in office, they are immediately inundated by lobbying requests, and put under a great deal of stress, and expected to perform optimally. Even with our greatest prayers, it is difficult for these people.

And so we begin to notice this thing; we begin to notice how very compromising a leadership position is, because of the fact that leaders are tempted to slip down into the third chakra … into the realm of control where it seems everyone else is.

Yet we have to follow our hearts, and lead with our hearts, in office. Every time our elected representatives fall down toward the third chakra, they pull many other people in our country into that Awareness too. We have to stand up and say: I will follow my heart anywayHow great it would be … would it not? … if we were to aver: We will follow our hearts, and we will help our leadership and our government to do the same! We will feel that!

The minute we determine to do that, and we do that, everything changes. Everything changes for everyone on Earth. Our leaders, our citizens, the foreign nations, the leaders of those nations, the leaders of every fleet of ships and every airline on Earth, every corporation … everything changes. This is the transformational shift that we call multidimensionality or ‘multi-diming’ that we are learning.

Motor Noises and Scary Astral Stories During Solar Events

To get back to my own Odyssey along these lines … this was some years back: At first, the Solar Storms would come, and I would hear astral stories about dark things, shadow things going on, and I would think: Oh, my, I’m in big trouble! My life is in trouble! I had better find a safe place to be! And it would seem that everybody else was saying and feeling the same thing on the astral plane.

A helicopter would come over; There is a helicopter landing pad for fires … over here in the Chatsworth Nature Preserve adjacent to my house … that is seldom used. But invariably, during a Solar Event, there would be lots of helicopters circling, over there … or I would hear a loud motor noise as neighbors did yard work or as a car revved out on the street.

You can take that any number of ways. you know? You can take that as an ominous sound, because the sound of a motor has a tendency to degrade the DNA, and to temporarily pull down our dimensions lower and lower. And the odd thing is that, during a Solar Storm, there are lots and lots of motor sounds. It is almost impossible to escape them.

It could be a lawnmower; it might be somebody’s leaf blower; it might be somebody’s air conditioner or their pool motor. Or outside on the street somebody running their motor, or endless helicopters circling around, or almost invariably flight control for a nearby airport would change the flight path to be directly over one’s own house … [laughs] … There is just a lot of commotion that happens during the Solar Events.

Electromagnetic Hypersensitivity and Cognitive Dissonance or ‘Mind Mud’ During Solar Events

I think it is because these rough sounds are leaving Earth, and they need to be heard and transformed through love. But that is another story because, when we hear sounds of motors during a Solar Event, when the air is so charged with protons, and so electric, it is very easy to become mentally confused with what they call ‘mind mud’.

Tom Kenyon calls it ‘cognitive dissonance’ that happens during these times; he calls it times of ‘chaos’ that he predicted around 2005 and 2006 and thereafter. His work is well worth reading. You go to his websitewww.tomkenyon.com … and check the Hathor Archives, starting at the earliest one. And then just read on up through today. There are not that many; each one is like a gem.

I first found out about cognitive dissonance through Tom Kenyon. And then I started noticing it myself when I became ‘electromagnetically hypersensitive’ as the World Health Organization calls it. I disagree; I think it is electromagnetic ‘superconsciousness’ … which is to say, I then came into my own as a ‘Lightworker’ … Light being, as you may know, but one of the many forms of electromagnetic energy.

But if you call it what the World Health Organization calls it, it is a chance that you will get time off from work as sick leave during times when you need to be off from work. That is the good thing about the World Health Organization vantage point regarding what they term ‘electromagnetic hypersensitivity’ … and which the Lightworkers term the ability to heal through the Incoming Light (in other words, to work with ‘Light’, that being another word for electromagnetic energy).

To return to events during a Solar Event: You hear motor noises, and then cognitive dissonance sets in. And then it is very difficult to feel your heart. You are back down in your lower chakras experiencing the ‘fight of flight’ response … like that.

You are trying to figure out whether some guerrilla scenario is unfolding! Is the country being invaded?! Am I safe? Do I need to flee? Do I need to fight? Do I need to turn on the news? Do I need to go to sleep? What do I need to do?

These are the things that come up, and go through your mind if your Awareness is down there in the negative ‘gut brain’ during a Solar Event. This is just because there is a helicopter flying overhead, or the sound of a motor, or the like; that is the trigger. And it seems that everybody else … you can hear the astral stories on the astral plane … are ready to freak out, because they also are going through ‘mind mud’ and cognitive dissonance.

So at first, in the early days, although I would be sitting peacefully, my thoughts used to flow wildly along with the astral stories. But as time went on, I began to distinguish between the chakras and the dimensions, and it was easier because things would happen that were near repeats of the old, and I would be able to navigate up to the heart chakra.

Yesterday’s Geostorm

A good example was yesterday; I was doing my yard work and the protons were flying. A Solar Event had been in effect for a couple of days. A terrific geostorm was going on …

10-27-2016-planetary-k-index

Image: Planetary K (Kp) Index (3 hour data), begin: 2016 Oct 25 0000 UTC,” by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO USA, public domain. DESCRIPTION: Of the 23 three-hour bars on this bar graph, 16 are red, indicating solar storm indexes of from Kp=5 to Kp=7.

Image: Planetary K (Kp) Index (3 hour data), begin: 2016 Oct 25 0000 UTC,” by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO USA, public domain.

DESCRIPTION: Of the 23 three-hour bars on this bar graph, 16 are red, indicating solar storm indexes of from Kp=5 to Kp=7.

I had ‘mind mud’ and cognitive dissonance to deal with. And so I was outside doing the gardening.

The helicopters started up again, one after another, flying overhead, circling, it seemed. And the flight path changed for the jets; they started going overhead too.

Then I remembered the other times. I could hear people in the neighborhood creating astral stories about all the thought forms that had come up before. But by keeping my attention on my heart chakra, I came to the conclusion this was the same as the other times when nothing bad had happened.

This was a chance to absorb the heavy energies coming from the sound of the helicopter engines into my heart and transform them with love. When I did that, it helped everyone around here, who was listening in, to achieve a more positive emotional frame of mind too.

That is the difference between the navel point and the heart; the heart offers us the ability to ride through our fears and to move on to an understanding that God is always with us; that grace is always with us, abounding, no matter what.

What we experience with our senses is just an illusion, and it is up to us to flavor it with positive emotions or negative emotions. If positive, then we rise in feeling to the highest heaven worlds. If negative, we can sink to the very lowest hellworlds … It is completely up to us.

My advice is to expect the unexpected during Solar Events. Go with the flow, you know? Ride with the waves and enjoy it. It is kind of cool. Very unexpected things happen.

On Consciously Shifting from Third Dimensional to Fourth Dimensional Awareness

The interesting thing about the dimensions is that, as we experience one dimension … say, the third dimension … we may see actions and ‘acting out’ in the world that support that third-dimensional activity. For example, some sort of ‘berserker’ actions out in the world, or like that. We may see those things happen. And that is because we have hooked into a dimension where those things are possible.

Yet, we can take the same set of sensory phenomena, and transform our Awareness to the heart chakra, and for us, that seemingly unalterable reality, that causal net or trap that other people are in, where many people feel they can control other people … how they feel they have everything ‘tied up’, how the ‘dare down’ (what we used to call the ‘game of chicken‘) operates, how they feel they can have their own way, and be above the law … all of these things that people believe, when they practice the third chakra energies, and that manifest in their reality because of it … are completely transformed through feeling the heart.

A person standing right beside me, and seeing all the helicopters going over, might be experiencing a completely different reality because of their feeling of fear. And they might step away from me, and into some action that perpetuates that notion that fear is true. Yet it is not.

Only love is true. And the closer our feeling is to love, the more truthful will be our hologram and our illusion. The more we will draw to ourselves those who have the same truthful representation of all that is. You see? I hope I have explained this adequately.

Lots of times when people are stuck in the third dimension, they see all sorts of dark things happening in the world, and they figure they will only survive if they practice black magic, not knowing that the practice of black magic only pulls them down further into the illusion. Black magic is not strong like the Angelic Realm is strong … No way! Not one thousandth, or one ten-thousandth as the Angelic Realm. We can always call on the Angelic Realm and bring in the fourth dimension.

Many people noticed what was going on with the power games amongst the leadership in the last decade, and how our world leaders were associating with other people also in the third chakras, including black magic practitioners. People noticed the bindings, the enslavement, and the karmic forces that wreak havoc over those who seek power, and how others are always eager to say that it is they who created those bonds on the leadership of the world; that they are the power behind the power. They are the ‘Controllers’ of Earth, right? They have the ‘master plan’ and they are making everything happen.

And if we, too, are perceiving everything from our third chakra, we believe this too. It is easy to believe. They look pretty scary! They seem pretty scary! They say that they have done 700 or 900 or Lord knows how many murders in their lifetimes. And, you know, in a state of fear we might believe these things. But in a state of feeling the heart, we see that none of this is true. It is completely untrue.

It is the same way in the astral stories … If there is someone that we feel to have power or authority over us, for whatever reason … someone that we just cannot seem to be able to deal with on an equal footing … it is likely, especially during a Solar Event, that the astral stories that come up around the sound of helicopters and other motor noises are going to feature that person as the ‘Controller’. But in fact, there is no ‘Controller’. There are just a lot of people that believe that they control things.

This is lucky, because we are noticing the constrictions on those in power. We are noticing how the desire for power rips power from us. We are noticing how black magic diminishes our human electromagnetic field. And we are finally realizing that is not the way.

So we have taken a great step forward. At first, it seems like everything is hopeless, and suddenly there are psychic wars, and there are mind control experts, and there are ‘Controllers’ everywhere … that all this is going on. But it has been going on all this time. We just did not know it. But now we do! That is terrific, really terrific! Congratulations to each of us!

The Power Game: Claims to False Authority

One of the power buzzwords that people use on the astral plane when they are into the third chakra game, has to do with those agencies on Earth that seem impregnable and unassailable, like a Secret Service organization, for instance. Pretending to be a Secret Service agent is, according to an article I read in WikiHow recently, quite an up-and-coming con game. A person with a fake Secret Service ID might even try to convince law enforcement that he just murdered a man, or robbed a bank, because he was a Secret Service person, and so therefore, he should be let go.

This is a very popular con game these days. And the same is true on the astral plane. There is a shadow game going on with regard to the Secret Service … all the different Secret Services: Homeland Security, CIA, FBI, maybe all the foreign Secret Services too; and also with regard to the State Department, the Internal Revenue Service.

Anything that strikes fear into the heart of the average American is featured on the astral stories as if the one or two people in the world that we most think of as the impregnable, unassailable ‘Controllers’ of our existence were in charge of those organizations. That is just another example of the con game with the fake Secret Service identification card, except that this person, that we are kind of concerned about and afraid of, is suddenly saying that they are a CIA agent, or that they have called the IRS, or that they know the head of the State Department, or that they have drones (!) that they can employ against us, and that tomorrow we are going to be no longer in existence! … Right! Like the government is concerned about us! … [laughs]

“The Last Avatar” – a Movie About Rising Above Our Fears

I saw a movie called “The Last Avatar.” It is a very cool movie about rising above fears engendered by the navel point notions of fight or flight, of control or being controlled. It is about rising past that into the heart chakra. You can get the movie from Amazon.com … www.amazon.com … And there is this great scene where the hero is about to proclaim his truth to the world, about all the great things that are actually so in the higher dimensions, and he is chased and chased by a mob of gendarme or guerrilla people … mercenaries … and he just makes it into the broadcasting booth, and proclaims his truth, and then the movie ends.

It is just that kind of feeling when you are rising from third chakra fears into the heart chakra. You can do it! You can make it. And it is a whole new, separate world where you can speak your truth freely; where you can follow your heart; where all the liberties written down in the Constitution of the United States are yours for the taking!

That is my pep talk! Talk to you all later! Love you lots.

DRAFT OUTLINE OF THE VIDEO

The first part of this video is about …

  • The chakric balance of our natal family, and how it affects us at first
  • What happens when one of the gut brain chakras is predominant in a natal family
  • On asking our Celestial Ascension Team for the user manual for the human body
  • Third chakra is about will power, about making one’s way in the world. It has to do with control, and with being controlled.
  • Ways of expressing oneself: assertiveness, aggressiveness, submissiveness

For a child born into a third-chakra family, an important lesson to be learned is to stand one’s ground, with maintaining one’s place in the world. The third chakra also has to do with ‘I’ and ‘other’, with cause and effect.

Leaders of government, defense, corporations, schools, and churches all have to deal with the competing demands of various people’s third-chakra energy,

In about 2012, at the time of the Shift, many, many people started coming to higher consciousness, to a state of enlightenment, to Awareness, to enlightenment, to Awakening, and sometimes to a sense of rapture and joy in Cosmic consciousness in the presence of God, to Christ consciousness.

People who are in the third chakra, and are starting to attain that awareness, have not yet reached the fourth chakra, which is essential to a noncausal view of reality. Through the fourth chakra, we attain a non-cause-and-effect Weltanschauung … the synchronous reality of God’s grace showering down on Earth and changing things instantaneously. But until we get there, sometimes we are there, and sometimes it seems like everything is hopelessly enmeshed in karma, especially if we had that kind of upbringing where there is a great deal of respect for the third chakra and for cause and effect.

In the last decade, many people, observing politics, have come to an understanding that there are astral realities, similar to the virtual realities of electronics, and to nanotechnology, but far more subtle, more refined. For instance, during the tens of thousands of years of the Age of Darkness, there have been astral bots, astral telecommunication devices, astral spy mechanisms, astral remote viewing and remote control of people, and all kinds of scary astral things like that … astral hypnosis, astral karmic forcing of people into a particular role that they do not want to be in, astral mind control … These astral things are very similar to the scary movies that the mass media have been putting out. That is because what the media are putting out has an astral reality, and not necessarily a high-tech reality.

So now, we are getting the willies, because we’ve noticed it: the malware, the mind mud, mind slide, and all kinds of technologies put in place by the many astral beings negative in the many epochs past. Now we notice it. And now we are freaking out! But it is all over with! This is the age of the Awakening … the beginning of the Age of Light.

It is not that some groups have suddenly taken over the leadership of any country, or of any groups in any country, or of the common man … you and me.

As Star Trek might term it, we have been ‘Borged up’ … our astral forms are cluttered with this malware. That makes us, in a way, not human, or not in control of ourselves. That’s really quite cool, because Earth school is about that … It is about losing some part of our free will, and making bad decisions, and learning from that, and then starting to make good decisions again.

What the malware does is, it creates the opportunity for us to learn more quickly, because it makes every bad decision 10 times worse.

On the other hand, we have the blessing of grace, through the higher realms, through our Celestial Teams, which are always available …. Only, we have to ask … and that makes everything 10 times better.

What sometimes happens, when a young person is born into a family that concentrates on the third chakra, the very strong will power chakra, is that they do not know that they have the choice to move into the heart chakra … It seems unsafe; while on the other hand, the only safety exists in the heart chakra. So that is a difficult thing that has to be learned: That we have that choice, and we can make that choice, and then to summon the courage, the strength of will to give it a go. And this despite the fact that our family may be totally on another page. We may have many long years before we can actually talk to our families. We might have to give that up. In fact, we might have to go to other people who know about assertiveness, and they know about following their hearts and having a wonderful life. We might have to let it go.

During a Solar Event, there are simultaneous astral stories running in the different dimensions of reality. Choosing a chakra is choosing a dimension.

Something came up yesterday, during the great geostorm that was going on. I was having a great time practicing my multidimensional skills.

I remember at first, when the Solar Storms would come up, and I’d be stuck in a third chakra dimensional realm, in the cause and effect realm, and other people would start these astral stories about war, and nanotechnology, and that we were the mere dupes of a shadow government. That the ‘puppet’ government that we saw on the news casts was not really the government at all … and at first I would get into a state of fear about it. Because I was starting to notice, in the third dimension, all the constrictions of the realm of cause and effect. I was starting to notice that, when a president gets in office, or a senator, or a congressman gets in office, he’s immediately inundated by lobbying requests, and put under a great deal of stress, and expected to perform optimally. It is difficult for these people.

We begin to notice how very compromising a leadership position is, because of the fact that we are tempted to slip down, in a leadership position, into the third chakra … into the realm of control where it seems like everyone else is.

Yet we have to follow our hearts, and lead with our hearts, in office. And every time our elected representatives fall toward the third chakra, they pull many other people in our country into that awareness too. Standalone unit! I! I have to stand alone and follow my heart anyway … This goes for each of us. We will follow our hearts, and we will help our leadership and our government to do the same!

The minute we determine to do that, and we do that, everything changes for everyone on Earth. Our leaders, our citizens, the foreign nations, leaders of those nations, the leaders of every fleet of ships and every airline on Earth, every corporation … everything changes. This is the transformational shift that we call multidimensionality or ‘multi-diming’ that we are learning.

To get back to my own Odyssey along these lines, at first, the Solar Storms would come, and I would hear astral stories about dark things, shadow things going on, and I would be frightened. Everybody else would be saying and feeling the same thing astrally. Then a helicopter would fly by, or I would hear a motor noise. Helicopters always seem to be buzzing overhead during a Solar Storm. And you can take that any number of ways: for instance, as an ominous sign (because the sound of a motor has a tendency to degrade the DNA, and to temporarily pull down our dimensions lower and lower). The odd thing is that, during a Solar Storm, there are lots of motor sounds. It’s almost impossible to escape them. I think it’s because these rough sounds are leaving Earth, and they need to be transformed through love.

In any event, when I hear motor noises during a Solar Event … when the air is so charged with protons and so electric, it is very easy to become mentally confused … what they call ‘mind mud’. Tom Kenyon … www.tomkenyon.com … Hathor Archives ) terms it ‘cognitive dissonance’ in times of ‘chaos’. This has to do, I feel, with development of the new clair ability termed by WHO ‘EMF hypersensitivity’.

When, during a Solar Event, cognitive dissonance sets in, it’s very difficult to remember to feel your heart. Then you find yourself back down in your lower chakras’ fight or flight response. You are trying to figure out: Am I safe? Do I need to flee? Do I need to fight? Do I need to turn on the news? Do I need to go to sleep? What do I need to do? These are kinds of things that go through your mind if you’re down there in the negative gut brain during a Solar Event; the trigger might be an astral story, or the sound of a motor, or the like.

So at first, in the early days, although I’d be sitting peacefully, my thoughts used to flow wildly along with the astral stories. But as time went on, I began to distinguish between the chakras and the dimensions, and it was easier because things would happen that were near repeats of the old, and I would be able to navigate up to the heart chakra.

A good example was yesterday. I was doing yard work; there was a big geostorm, and the protons were flying. The helicopters started up again, one after another, flying overhead, circling, it seemed. And I remembered the other times. I could hear people making up astral stories, but by keeping my attention on my heart chakra, I came to the conclusion this was the same as the other times when nothing bad had happened. This was a chance to absorb the heavy energies coming from the sound of the helicopter engines into my heart and transform them with love. When I did that, it helped everyone around here, who was listening in, to achieve a more positive emotional frame of mind too.

That is the difference between the navel point and the heart; it is the ability to ride through our fears and to move on to an understanding that God is always with us; that grace is always with us, abounding.

This is just an illusion, and it is up to us to flavor it with positive emotions or negative emotions. If positive, then we rise in feeling to the highest heaven worlds. If negative, we can sink to the very lowest hellworlds … It’s completely up to us.

Expect the unexpected during Solar Events. Go with the flow. Ride with the waves and enjoy it. It is kind of cool. Very unexpected things happen.

The interesting thing about the dimensions is that, as we experience one dimension, the third dimension, we may see actions and ‘acting out’ in the world that support that third-dimensional activity. For example, some sort of ‘berserker’ actions out in the world. We may see those things happen. And that is because we have hooked into a dimension where those things are possible.

Yet, we can take the same set of sensory phenomena, and transform our awareness to the heart chakra, and for us, seemingly unalterable reality, that causal net or trap that other people are in, how many people feel they can control other people, how they feel they have everything ‘tied up’, how the dare down (what we used to call the ‘game of chicken‘) operates, how we can have our way, and be above the law … these things that people believe, when they practice third chakra energies, and that manifest in their reality because of it … are completely transformed through feeling the heart.

A person standing right beside me, and seeing all the helicopters going over, might be experiencing a completely different reality because of their feeling of fear. And they might step away from me, and into some action that perpetuates that feeling of fear is true. Yet it is not. Only love is true. And the closer our feeling is to love, the more truthful will be our hologram and our illusion. The more we will draw to ourselves those who have the same truthful representation of all that is.

Lots of times when people see all the dark things that are happening in the world, they figure they will only survive if they practice black magic, not knowing that the practice of black magic only pulls them down further into the illusion. Black magic is not strong like the angelic realm is strong. Not one ten-thousandth as strong as the angelic realm; we can always call on that and call in the fourth dimension.

Many people noticed what was going on with the power games amongst the leadership in the last decade, and how our world leaders were associating with other people also in the third chakras, including black magic practitioners. People noticed the bindings and the karmic forces that wreak control over those who seek power, and how others are always eager to say  that is they who created those bonds on the leadership; that they are the power behind the power. They are the ‘Controllers’ of Earth. They have the ‘master plan’ and they are making everything happen.

And if we, too, are perceiving everything from our third chakra, we believe this too. It’s easy to believe. They seem pretty scary! They say that they have done 700 or 900 or Lord knows how many murders in their lifetime. And in a state of fear we might believe these things. But in a state of feeling the heart, we see that none of this is true. It is completely untrue.

It is the same way in the astral stories … If there is someone that we feel to have power or authority over us, for whatever reason … someone that we just can’t seem to be able to deal with on an equal footing … it is likely, during a Solar Event, that the astral stories that come up around helicopters, and like that, are going to feature that person as the ‘Controller’. But in fact, there is no ‘Controller’. There are just a lot of people that believe that they control things.

This is lucky, because we are noticing the constrictions on those in power. We are noticing how the desire for power rips power from us. We are noticing how black magic diminishes our human electromagnetic field. And we are finally realizing that that’s not the way.

But at first, it seems like everything is hopeless, and suddenly there are psychic wars, and there are mind control experts, and there are ‘Controllers’ everywhere, and all this stuff is going on. But it is been going on all this time. We just did not know it. But now we do! That is really terrific! Congratulations to each of us!

One of the power buzzwords that people use on the astral plane when they’re into the third chakra game, is they’ll find some agency on Earth that seems impregnable and unassailable, like a Secret Service organization, for instance. Pretending to be a Secret Service agent is, according to an article I read in WikiHow recently, quite an up and coming con game. A person with a fake Secret Service ID might even try to convince law enforcement that he just murdered a man, or robbed a bank because he was a Secret Service person, and so therefore, he should be let go.

This is a very popular con game these days, and the same is true on the astral plane. There is a very popular astral story going on about the Secret Service … all the different agencies like that, and with regard to the State Department, the Internal Revenue Service. Anything that strikes fear into the heart of the average American is featured on the astral stories as if the one or two people in the world that we most think of as the impregnable, unassailable ‘Controllers’ of our existence were in charge of those organizations. That is just another example of the fake Secret Service ID, except that this person, that we’re kind of afraid of, is saying, suddenly, that they are a Secret Service agent, or that they’ve called the IRS, or that they know the head of the State Department, or that they have drones that they drones (!) that they can employ against us, and that tomorrow we are going to be out of existence…. Like, right! Like the government is concerned about us!

I saw a movie called “The Last Avatar,” available on www.amazon.com … It is a very cool movie about rising above fears engendered by the navel point notions of fight or flight, of control or being controlled. It is about rising past that into the heart chakra. And there is this great scene where the hero is about to proclaim his truth to the world, about all the great things that are actually so in the higher dimensions, and he’s chased by a mob of Gendarme guerrilla people … mercenaries … and he just makes it into the broadcasting booth, and proclaims his truth, and then the movie ends.

It is just that kind of feeling when you’re rising from third chakra fears into the fourth chakra. You can do it! You can make it. And it is a whole new, separate world where you can speak your truth freely, where you can follow your heart, where all the liberties written down in the Constitution of the United States are yours for the taking!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Community Health: Rape by Caregivers in Health-Care Institutions . by Alice B. Clagett

Wreitten and published on 4 October 2016

  • VULNERABLE PATIENT POPULATIONS
  • PHYSICAL OR PHARMACEUTICAL RESTRAINT ACTIVATES THE KARPMAN DRAMA TRIANGLE
  • DISCLOSURE OF PATIENT ABUSE THROUGH TELEPATHY IS ON THE RISE WORLDWIDE
  • ON CAREGIVERS COMMUNICATING CLAIRLY WITH THE PATIENT WHO CANNOT SPEAK PHYSICALLY
  • SEXUAL FULFILLMENT FOR PATIENTS IN HEALTH-CARE INSTITUTIONS
  • ON TURNING THE KARPMAN DRAMA TRIANGLE TO A FUNCTIONAL TRIANGLE RELATIONSHIP

Dear Ones,

I found out last night, on the clair plane, that there are ongoing instances of caregiver rape of patients in health-care institutions.

VULNERABLE PATIENT POPULATIONS

My feeling is, that this is widespread, even commonplace. Here are a few categories of patients who may be most vulnerable …

  • Babies, children and adults with developmental disabilities (1) who are in long-term healthcare institutions. This includes:
    • Autists both young and old,
    • Deaf-mute children and adults
    • Down Syndrome babies and adults,
    • Thalidomide babies, now adult,
    • Children and adults with severe mental disorders,
    • Children and adults with very impaired IQ,
    • Conjoined twins who are institutionalized,
    • and many others
  • Senior adults … including Alzheimer’s patients and Sundowning Syndrome patients in retirement homes who are sedated and restrained to their beds
  • Adults who have been anesthetized by hospitals
  • Moribund patients in hospitals, and
  • The bodies of recently deceased patients … often in a hospital morgue or in a funeral home (2)
  • among others

PHYSICAL OR PHARMACEUTICAL RESTRAINT ACTIVATES THE KARPMAN DRAMA TRIANGLE

My feeling is, physical or pharmaceutical restraint, as is the case for patients in the above categories, can initiate acting out of the Karpman Drama Triangle (also called the Perverse Triangle) …

Link: “Karpman Drama Triangle,” in Wikipedia, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karpman_drama_triangle ..

… if a caretaker, especially a nocturnal male caretaker, has experienced this dysfunctional family constellation in childhood.

The Karpman Drama Triangle has three features: The Persecutor (elsewhere termed the Abuser or Bully), the Rescuer (elsewhere termed the Enabler), and the Victim. In natal families, these rolls can be acted out by different family members at different times. A typical example is a bullying alcoholic father, a mother who makes excuses for him and tries to patch things up, and a child who is physically or emotionally abused by the father.

Image: “Karpman Drama Triangle” by Steve Karpman, in Wikimedia Commons …  https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:PAULRYDER_DT.png ..

Typically, the Persecutor in this Karpman Drama Triangle is a male night doctor, nurse, intern, or janitor, who will have a habit of raping a favorite patient, or a certain category of patient (such as anesthetized, sedated, moribund, or deceased), nocturnally. He may also be having sex with a female attendant, who through sexual bonding with him allows the rapes to occur. He may ask her to ‘clean up after him’ nightly. Thus the female attendant in this scenario is the Rescuer, and the patient is the Victim in this version of the Karpman Triangle Drama.

DISCLOSURE OF PATIENT ABUSE THROUGH TELEPATHY IS ON THE RISE WORLDWIDE

Telepathy is on the rise worldwide, and it becomes immediately obvious to the discerning telepath when these instances of health-care rape take place. To be clear, we can see them and hear them as if they were happening in our own homes. We can also feel them … as if our own physical bodies were being raped …

For instance, in the case of the rape of a physically restrained woman that took place last night, both I and a family member experienced the rape as if it were physically happening in our own EMF fields. This clair ability is called clairsentience, or intuitive knowing by feeling. See Link: “‘Meet the Clairs’ – 10 Kinds of Intuition – August 2016,” by Emily Matweow …  http://www.okinhealth.com/articles/10-clairsenses-intuition-emily-matweow ..

These telepathic disclosures are taking place to what I can only term the horror of increasingly clairsentient family and friends of institutionalized patients.

Because  these instances of sometimes long-term ongoing physical and emotional abuse of patients can no longer be hidden from the public eye, this misbehavior is now quite likely to be brought to the attention of health-care administrators through phone calls or visits by concerned family and friends. My feeling is that immediate loss of work would be the likely outcome of such a conversation … no matter what the credentials of the abusive staff member may be.

As the first of these rapes are disclosed and dealt with through public censure and job loss, I feel that the warning will go out for others in similar situations, and behavior modification, albeit motivated by fear of reprisal, will quite quickly begin to take place.

This, then, is an alert regarding what passed for relatively normal, and easily concealed, in the past, and what is now nightly being disclosed to the open eyes and ears of the global telepathic community. I call for an end to rape in health-care institutions. Know that what once was can no longer be, and take steps on an administrative level to ensure the ongoing physical and emotional safety of your patients.

ON CAREGIVERS COMMUNICATING CLAIRLY WITH THE PATIENT WHO CANNOT SPEAK PHYSICALLY

There are patients without the power to speak on the physical plane, for example …

  • Some children and adults with autism
  • Some deaf-mute children and adults, and
  • Some adults who were thalidomide babies
  • among others

These patients who have no voice in the physical world have been in past more often than not thought too stupid to learn, too mentally impaired to be considered human, and the like. Helen Keller’s autobiography proves that this notion that the human heart and Soul are in some way dimmed or diminished by inability to communicate with the physical voice is false …

Link: “Helen Keller,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helen_Keller ..

Nevertheless, because of the tendency of humans to flock together with those who resemble them physically, and because the notion of severe developmental disability of others causes the caregivers’ own hearts to suffer, this notion of diminishment is prevalent in the world today. Yet the Soul’s awareness shines, undimmed, through the most severely impaired physical incarnations, such as, for instance, that of fetus in fetu.

For an instance of the Soul shining through a very limited physical incarnation, that of fetus in fetu, see Link: “Ego 2: One Ego Encapsulated in Another; Body Co-Tenancy and Soul Evolution,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 17 August 2016; revised on 11 October 2018 … http://wp.me/p2Rkym-613 ..

As telepathy becomes global, it will gradually become clear to health-care institution caretakers and administrators that they can, in fact, communicate with  patients on the clair plane even though these patients can’t communicate with their physical voice. Through inductive reasoning, staff will all in an instant ascertain that these patients are human beings, people such as the staff themselves, and that they are worthy of supportive, educative care. What seemed to be non-abusive care, both physical and verbal, for these patients in times past, will be increasingly apprehended as abusive and nonsupportive of the patient’s welfare.

As caretakers and administrators become more familiar with the clairaudient plane, they will be better able to help their clairaudient patients lead happy, fulfilling lives, even though they may be incapable of physical speech. Further, clair communication will bring these sensorily isolated patients back into a sense of community with their fellow patients as well as their caregivers.

As telepathy has no geographic barriers, these patients will be able to reunite with and communicate with their families, no matter how distant they may be from them on the physical plane, and this raises the prospect of healing natal family dynamics, even though the children may be grown up now.

One caveat in this regard: When families who have institutionalized their children become aware that their children, or grown-up children, are in fact shining and perfect in Soul apprehension and clair communication, painful family emotional issues regarding anger at abandonment are bound to come up right away. Let us on the clair plane be available to assist the staff of health-care facilities in resolving these Soul wounding issues for the families involved.

SEXUAL FULFILLMENT FOR PATIENTS IN HEALTH-CARE INSTITUTIONS

As to the issue of sexual fulfillment in these situations, my feeling is that the United States are very backward in this regard … as is the case with the American penal institutions. Compare, for instance, American policy on conjugal visits for prisoners with the policies of other nations.

No human being can be expected to be in mental and emotional harmony if the means are not readily and non-disparagingly at hand for their sexual fulfillment. Yet due to our the strong Puritanical tradition in America, these means are often flat-out forbidden. Surely the administrators of our health-care institutions can revise these rules and find a middle path that brings in the compassionate heart, and a deeper understanding of the emotional needs of the patients under their care.

ON TURNING THE KARPMAN DRAMA TRIANGLE TO A FUNCTIONAL TRIANGLE RELATIONSHIP

When positive emotional energies are introduced into a Karpman Triangle relationship, then the result is what is known as the Empowerment Dynamic or the TED*  …

drama-triangle-the-empowerment-dynamic

Image: “Image showing the relationship between Karpman’s Drama Triangle and it’s opposite *The Empowerment Dynamic (The TED* Triangle),” by Davidemerald … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Drama-Triangle-The-Empowerment-Dynamic.jpg ..

As can be seen from the above image, introduction of positive emotions can change the Persecutor-Rescuer-Victim interaction to these roles: Challenger-Coach-Creator. This type of switch-up can take place in health-care institution interactions with patients, as within natal families and in workplace situations. It can happen, in fact, in almost every set of human relationships.

On ISIS and Like That . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 15 September 2016

Dear Ones,

The weirdest astral story is circulating round … about a Jewish fringe group that engages in white collar terrorist acts against Americans not of their culture … to the effect that they seek out ‘lonely hearts’, cull them from family and friends, use their considerable psychic and sexual powers to part them from their money and land them somewhere where no more trouble will come of the matter. A minor source of in-group wrangling being the manner of ‘landing’ … whether mental institution, old folks’ home, or plain dirt, 6 foot under!

This group, so the story goes, is spread out, octopus tentacle-like, all over the US of A, but organized by secret ‘cells’, need to know-wise.

Further way so out there, a fringe story about down and out Jewish individuals being offered sizable cash grants to their families in exchange for perpetrating terrorist acts under the guise of being ISIS folks.

And yet another fringe story, circulating a couple of years ago, about psychic powers being used out of LA to foment terrorist acts as far away as the Middle East; that story, at least, has thankfully ceased. I suppose there is some grain of truth in these ‘way so weird’ astral stories.

But what grain? It would be like searching for a needle in a haystack. Better to just plunk down the coins for the daily newspaper, whose headlines are far and away more informative.

I will hazard a guess about this one, though: Maybe there are ‘out there’ individuals in every major religion, expectably, though the vast majority of folks in every religion are peace loving and law abiding?

As the Awakening proceeds, I am looking forward to each group tidying up its own ‘out there’ elements. Who better to deal with this, than the group itself? That is my thought about it.

Meantime, a nice walk out in Nature is, I feel, a far better way to while away the time, than to pay homage to these astral stories circulating round the noosphere.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Compendium: HIV / AIDS Pandemic, and Data Suppression by the Centers for Disease Control . by Alice B. Clagett *

Published on 10 July 2016; revised on 3 April 2020
Previously titled: Overview of the HIV / AIDS Pandemic, and of Data Suppression by the Centers for Disease Control

  • LIST OF BLOGS ON HIV / AIDS AND DATA SUPPRESSION

Dear Ones,

Here are my exposés on data suppression of 2014 HIV / AIDS incidence by our government. This is my original work, and as far as I know, no one else has discovered this cover-up (or as is popularly termed, ‘massaging of the data’).

These blog pages were written from March through today, and each builds on prior understanding. The most recent posts are at the top of the list.

Towards a Vision of a Crime-Free America . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 22 June 2016

Dear Ones,

A while back, my local Unitarian Universalist Society, which has an interest in social justice, offered a course in what felons face here in the United States after leaving prison. I took the course, and that got me interested in the general topic.

Mass media can make the world of criminality seem appealing … fast-paced, even glamorous. Because criminal acts are featured so often on the news, on nightly TV, and at the movies, people are led to believe that criminality is a normal, ordinary choice of lifestyle. This notion that crime is popular and ordinary … that it has entertainment value … is one way in which mass media today insidiously undermine the social fabric of America.

In this blog, I will offer a brief summary of the facts regarding felony conviction. My hope is that this will help everyone understand the very severe consequences of having a felony on one’s record. Here are the blog subheadings …

  • What Is a Felony?
  • What Are the Personal Consequences of a Felony Conviction in the United States?
  • Expungement of a Felony Conviction
  • Towards a Vision of a Crime-Free America
    • Education of Young People
    • Future Treatment of Felons
    • Sweeping Changes in the Tenor of Mass Media

WHAT IS A FELONY?

Felonies include but are not limited to the following ,,,

WHAT ARE THE PERSONAL CONSEQUENCES OF A FELONY CONVICTION IN THE UNITED STATES?

“In many parts of the United States, a felon can face long-term legal consequences persisting after the end of their imprisonment. The status and designation as a ‘felon’ is considered permanent, and is not extinguished upon sentence completion even if parole, probation or early release was given.[18] The status can be cleared only by a successful appeal or executive clemency. However, felons may apply for restoration of some rights after a certain period of time has passed.

“The consequences felons face in most states include:

“Additionally, many job applications and rental applications ask about felony history (with the exception of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts) and answering dishonestly on them can be grounds for rejecting the application, or termination if the lie is discovered after hire. This is because most bonding companies do not issue bonds to felons, which effectively bars them from certain jobs. Additionally, most landlords do not rent to felons due to the risk of legal liability if the renter commits another crime.

“It is legal to discriminate against felons in hiring decisions as well as the decision to rent housing to a person, so felons can face barriers to finding both jobs and housing. A common term of parole is to avoid associating with other felons. In some neighborhoods with high rates of felony conviction, this creates a situation where many felons live with a constant threat of being arrested for violating parole.[18] Many banks refuse service to felons, and some states consider a felony conviction grounds for an uncontested divorce.

“In some states, restoration of those rights depends on repayment of various fees associated with the felon’s arrest, processing, and prison stay, such as restitution to victims, or outstanding fines.[18]” (1)

EXPUNGEMENT

“For state law convictions, expungement is determined by the law of the state. Many states do not allow expungement, regardless of the offense, though felons can seek pardons and clemency, including restoration of rights.[citation needed]

“Federal law does not have any provisions for persons convicted of federal felonies in a federal United States district court to apply to have their record expunged. While the pending Second Chance Act[dated info] would change this if enacted, at present the only relief that an individual prosecuted in federal court may receive is a Presidential Pardon, which does not expunge the conviction, but rather grants relief from the civil disabilities that stem from it.[19]” (1)

TOWARDS A VISION OF A CRIME-FREE AMERICA

Education of Young People

I feel that the future holds promise of change in the education of the young regarding social norms and societal expectations, and that this change will support the beginnings of a crime-free America. I place my hopes on schools offering our children these opportunities …

  • study of the Declaration of Independence,
  • discussion of the United States Constitution, and
  • information regarding how the rights of felons are curtailed here in the United States, so that they will understand the consequences of the criminal acts so popularly glamorized in the mass media

Future Treatment of Felons

I also feel that the future holds promise of many changes in treatment of those convicted of felony.  For instance …

  • I foresee job education and work parole programs for felons serving time. This trend, which looks quite promising, has already begun here in the United States
  • For released felons, I see a trend toward rehabilitation into the mainstream, with a chance to be reunited with their families, even if their families are in public housing. Laws to the contrary very clearly contribute to the degradation of the American family-oriented social values.
  • I also feel that more job programs will be developed to help felons find good work that helps them develop and reinforce mainstream social values.
  • Depriving felons of socialized medical care serves no purpose; if they need medical care and cannot find law-abiding work, then they will be driven to a life of crime, such as burglary or robbery, in order to pay for medicines. Thus it serves society well to allow felons as much access to socialized medical care as is available to those with no criminal record.

Sweeping Changes in the Tenor of Mass Media

Regarding mass media, I foresee …

  • a global coming to consciousness regarding the hurtful aspects of mass media today, which emphasizes violence and glamorizes crime
  • a broad swath of the world population consciously choosing more uplifting entertainment programming that supports their vision of the world of tomorrow
  • I further see many people choosing mass media that create in the viewer the emotions of appreciation, gratitude, joy, and peace, rather than the emotions of fear, anger, rage, and hatred. I see folks choosing these as a way of co-creating the new reality on Earth. It is, after all, the strength and flavor of our emotions that shapes the future of Earth’s nations.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Acceptable Collateral Damage Mental Filter in America . by Alice B. Clagett

  • ON OPTIMIZING TIMELINES SO AS TO ELIMINATE DENSE TIMELINES

Dear Ones,

ACCEPTABLE COLLATERAL DAMAGE MENTAL FILTER

I have come across an astral story recently that is really ‘out there’. There has been talk in recent years about the notion of acceptable collateral damage. Some feel that this notion, while regrettable, is a practical one.

This implied consent to the practicality of the notion has apparently led to the circulation of the Acceptable Collateral Damage Mental Filter in the noosphere. I feel this mental filter is completely without merit or truth, and that it is being used by antisocial personalities (ASPs) … who are quite wily, when all is said and done … as cover for their serial killing and other crimes.

MISSING CHILDREN: FEAR THAT FUELS THE MYTH

One sees posters from time to time about missing children. The famous case of the missing Dylan Redwine boy is one such instance …

Link: “Dylan Redwine: The Journey to Justice,” on Facebook …  https://www.facebook.com/FindMissingDylanRedwine/ ..

There are many other cases of missing children all over the world, and even here in the United States. I expect that may contribute to the tenacity of this astral story in the noosphere. The story goes like this …

RATIOCINATION ABOUT SECRET SERVICE OPERATIVES BEING ENTITLED TO HOMELAND KILLS AS A RETIREMENT PERK

The notion of collateral damage is considered acceptable … regrettable, but practical in today’s world. So then, along the lines of practicality, the astral story continues like this: What is the proper hiring profile for the intelligence agencies of the world? Would not an antisocial personality, such as a serial killer, be perfect for this job? But then, what would be the retirement prerogatives of an intelligence agent who is an ASP?

Practically speaking … but regrettably so … this astral story then makes an assumption regarding acceptable collateral damage among the relatively powerless portions of a homeland population. For instance, the retired ASP operative might be assigned an acceptable kill rate per month among ‘the powerless’ citizens of a small town, such as …

  • children
  • single women
  • the elderly
  • people with alternate lifestyles
  • homeless men and women
  • underserved ethnicities

WOULD AMERICANS BE WILLING TO ACCEPT SUCH A GAME PLAN?

What a sci fi scenario that would be, would it not? How would the people of a country feel about having retired ASPs at work ‘in their own back yard’? In America, whose Declaration of Independence, the very cornerstone of our country, states that this notion of acceptable collateral damage in one’s own backyard clearly would not fly …

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” –from “United States Declaration of Independence,” in Wikipedia …  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_Declaration_of_Independence … Text is available under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike License ..

The average American citizen would ask …

  • How many ‘hits’ might an ASP operative be expected to make during his or her working life, serving their country?
  • How many ‘hits’ per year, among their home country population, might be considered acceptable collateral damage?
  • How many years might they expect to live after retirement?

The average American would multiply the ‘hits’ per retirement year by the life expectancy of the retired ASP operative, and compare the product to the number of hits during the operative’s working life.  I crunched these numbers below …

Hits per Retired Operative: The Conservative Estimate

10 years as an operative  =  possibly a maximum of 10 ‘hits’ while working. 40 years retirement, at 1 hypothetically approved homeland retirement ‘hit’ per month  =  (40 retirement years)  x  (12 months per year)  =  480 hypothetically approved homeland retirement ‘hits’.  480 – 10 = 470 freebie ‘hits’ in one ASP operative’s lifetime. In other words, the 10 hits while working as an operative would be balanced by 10 of the ‘freebie’ homeland retirement hits. And the remaining 470 freebie hits would be way in excess of a ‘murder credit’ that might be unfathomably assigned by a government to its retired operatives.

Hits per Retired Operative: The Estimate If Things Get Out of Hand

With ASPs, things can get out of hand at times, depending primarily on substance abuse and the opportunistic synchrony resulting from keeping bad company. And so, ‘hits’ can ratchet up from 1 per month (which an ASP would consider the model of prudent self-restraint) to 1 per week (or more) (which an ASP would consider simply to be ‘bad timing’ from the standpoint of possible public scrutiny).

Crunching the numbers from the perspective of 1 ‘hit’ per week, it would be (40 retirement years)  x  (52 weeks per year)  =  2,080 homeland ‘hits’ during an ASP’s retirement.  2,080 – 10 would then = 2,070 freebie ‘hits’ in one ASP operative’s lifetime, from a pragmatic standpoint.

The True Numbers of Homeland Citizens That Might be Slain

An ASP is an ASP, all his or her life, and the ‘hit’ pattern continues throughout the ASP’s life. One ought thus to calculate into such a hypothetical scenario out of hand ‘hits’ starting at, say, 9 years of age, and on through, say, 30 years of age, which would be a putative retirement date.

That would be (21 years preretirement)  x (12 months per year)  =  252 additional freebie homeland ‘hits’ in a conservative scenario.

Or, in an out-of-hand. weekly ‘hit’ scenario, (21 years pretirement) x (52 weeks per year)  = 1,092 preretirement hits.

Adding It All Up …

  • Conservative scenario of one ‘hit’ per month: (252 preretirement ‘hits’) + (480 freebie ‘hits’ during retirement) = 732 homeland lives lost during one ASP’s lifetime.
  • ‘Out of hand’ scenario of one ‘hit’ per week: (1,092 preretirement ‘hits’) + (2,080 ‘hits’ during retirement) = 3,172 homeland lives lost during one ASP’s lifetime.

What Conclusion Would the Average American Reach, as to Permissiveness Regarding Homeland Slayings by Retired Operatives?

Then the average American would very likely conclude that the cost in the lives of those he loved … the threat of death to his children, his wife, his fellow co-workers and their families … far outweighed the service the ASP had provided to his country.

I feel this to be true: Americans would vote, hands down, against such an astral story taking up space in their personal reality. It’s quite clear that this mental filter is nothing but a ‘Hollywood movie’ that has wafted into everyone’s Awareness on the astral plane.

ON OPTIMIZING TIMELINES SO AS TO ELIMINATE DENSE TIMELINES

This New Earth sparkles with love and Light. We can change everything, in the wink of an eye! When these sorts of dense timeline scenarios waft into my Awareness, I very quickly turn to timeline optimization …

Spirit to Team!
Optimize Timelines!
For the All, through Free Will!

The minute I do so, all is new, and fresh, and full of love and Light. I see before me the freedom to live my life, with all the liberties our great Constitution provides … to pursue my own happiness … to follow my heart, on a beautiful, sunny summer day, here in America, the Land of the Free.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Suppression of 2014 Data on the US HIV / AIDS Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

    • Women and Children
    • Sex Workers
  • CLAIR INTEL ON HIV / AIDS INFANTS
  • CLAIR INTEL ON PRISONERS IN PENAL INSTITUTIONS

  • A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

Dear Ones,

I have done some research because of the conflict between my clair intel on HIV / AIDS incidence and the US government and CDC (Centers for Disease Control) statistics, and have come up with some concerning results.

STATISTICS: SUPPRESSION OF HIV DATA

At the CDC Atlas I went to HIV diagnoses in the United States, at … http://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/main.html?value=atlas … [As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

I clicked on the “View Counties” button. I noticed in the key at the top right that a white background with horizontal marks across it indicates counties where Data Are Suppressed (1) :

HIV data suppressed

Image: Rate per 100,000 … horizontal hatching means ‘data suppressed’ … in “United States HIV Diagnoses 2014,” at the “CDC [Centers for Disease Control] Atlas” … http://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/main.html?value=atlas … … [As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

Image: Rate per 100,000 … horizontal hatching means ‘data suppressed’ … in “United States HIV Diagnoses 2014,” at the “CDC [Centers for Disease Control] Atlas” … http://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/main.html?value=atlas ... [As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

These areas appear as white on the following map (1)  …

HIV diagnoses-US

Map: “United States HIV Diagnoses 2014,” at the “CDC [Centers for Disease Control] Atlas” … http://gis.cdc.gov/grasp/nchhstpatlas/main.html?value=atlas … public domain … Shows many white geographic areas, indicating where data are suppressed … [As of 09/12/2019 this page is no longer applicable to the current discussion]

Thus it appears that data have been suppressed in almost all counties in the US States with the exception of about 2/3 of California and about 4/5 of Arizona. There is also a smattering of reporting along the Eastern Seaboard and the Gulf Coast.

In Alaska and the US Territories data have been suppressed. Hawaii is reporting.

Thus the reason for the optimistic outlook regarding HIV / AIDS in the United States. See …

LInk: “HIV Basics,” at HIV.gov … https://www.hiv.gov/hiv-basics ..

… most likely has to do with suppression of data on a broad scale.

THE SITUATION IN OTHER COUNTRIES

My intuitive feeling is that the situation may be more grave in most other countries, with the exception of the developed countries, which most likely have more funding for health education and health care than do the less developed countries. However, I have not yet done the research on the global situation.

CLAIR INTEL ON UNDERREPORTED POPULATIONS

Women and Children

From my reading, I have heard that HIV infection of United States women is underreported, apparently because US Medical Institutions do not consider women who are straight and in relationships with men to be at risk, and consequently do not provide testing.

There is an issue with social stigma for women and men who are primarily straight, where the men may be engaging in casual MSM (male sex with men) as well. This would be a social stigma for both the man and woman in the primarily straight relationship.

  • Thus the man in such a straight relationship may have HIV / AIDS, and also possibly hepatitis, but be unwilling to tell his wife about it.
  • If true, this would result in danger of infecting the children in a primarily straight relationship as well, through the wife not taking necessary precautions to avoid infecting the children.
  • On the clair plane, I have even heard of instances of HIV testers at medical facilities being offered bribes to change a wife’s HIV test to negative (that is, to a ‘no HIV’ result).
  • On the clair plane, I have also heard that wealth and power can sometimes buy indigent parents’ assent to sexual abuse of children, both young boys and young girls, for a pittance. If true, this would put such children at risk for HIV infection.

Sex Workers

  • I have clair intel regarding sex workers bribing HIV testers at medical facilities to return negative results (that is, to ‘no HIV’ results).

CLAIR INTEL ON HIV / AIDS INFANTS

  • I have clair intel regarding HIV-positive infants at medical facilities being unadoptable, and being euthanized, and further clair intel that I find disturbing, to the effect there may be a market for these infants’ HIV-infected organs.
  • I would like to make it clear that, in a slow-moving epidemic such as the current global HIV / AIDS epidemic, it is the HIV-positive infants that offer the most hope for the future of humankind, as there will be some among them who are resistant to HIV / AIDS. As with the flu epidemic in the early 1900s, the resistant population will be the basis of the future world community. So for the sake of the world, I beg our peoples to care for and nurture these infants with HIV / AIDS.

CLAIR INTEL ON PRISONERS IN PENAL INSTITUTIONS

  • Regarding penal institutions, on the clair plane my intel is that incarceration carries a high risk of contracting HIV / AIDS through rape by inmates. The jails are too overcrowded, I hear, to allow a person a cell by himself, and so the threat of rape by fellow prisoners is quite clear.
  • I have more to say about incarceration: I feel that a minor infraction, such as a DUI speeding ticket that results in incarceration, ought not to be a ticket to contracting HIV / AIDS. The penalty, I feel, is too steep for the infraction. So I ask that we all put our heads together and think what might be done about this. Having HIV / AIDS makes it harder to find work, and also harder to excel at a job because of health challenges.
  • On the clair plane I have also heard prisoners’ fears that, if they ask for a private cell, they run the risk of being raped by law enforcement. If true … and I am sure such instances would be rare, considering the fine quality of our law enforcement officers … then in such an instance the officer and his family would also be at higher risk, and might wish to seek HIV testing. (2)

OVER-THE-COUNTER HIV TESTS

I notice that Ora-Quick offers a $40 in-home HIV tests that is sold through major drug stores. This is touted as being as accurate as Medical Facility Tests. If true, this would be a way for women and children to ‘bridge the gap’ between the tests now provided through Medical Facilities and the reality of the situation at hand.

A WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT

For those who are now diagnosed HIV-positive: Know that you are not alone. There are many, many who are diagnosed the same. It’s just that the figures are not out there; they are suppressed.

And too, those who have HIV / AIDS are laboring under more than the effects of this disease; an even greater burden is the negative opinion our friends and family may have of us if they find out, and the way people treat us when we apply for work.

Dear Ones, knowledge is power. If we know and understand what we’re up against as a nation, we will find the courage and hope to stand together in community and see this great nation through the coming difficult times.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

(2) On the Drug War and Prison Overcrowding. Our law enforcement officers are, I feel, doing their very best to deal with a difficult situation, considering the drug war and overcrowding in penal facilities.

In the longer run, I feel our nation will turn to making drugs legal, so that the tax on drug sales can be used for drug use education and rehabilitation. If the sale of drugs were legal, there would be less violence around this sector of the economy … as is the case with the sale of cigarettes and liquor. Thus the job of law enforcement would be less dangerous. It could also be that law enforcement might have an opportunity to assist with drug use education and rehabilitation.

Penal facilities have already turned to Work Parole and similar programs, and that is a good step; education and rehabilitation by law enforcement for those in Work Parole programs might also be helpful. In short, in the coming years, I see the role of law enforcement turning, overall, to education and rehabilitation programs.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I thought I would tell you a story that my mom told me, in relation to a newspaper story that I saw the other day. The two are related, but they are miles apart in terms of years and generations …

My Mother’s Story About Employment of the Homeless for Public Works in the Great Depression

When I was very young, my mother told me the story of the Great Depression. That was the time she lived through before I was born. In the time of the Great Depression, there was no work to be had. There were a number of reasons why many men could not find work at all. And so, she said, they left their homes and their families, in hopes of finding work elsewhere. And they roamed around and lived under bridge abutments, off the sides of roads, in crude encampments of tent dwellings … and looked for work from there, in hopes that they could get money to support their families.

These tent villages were huge sometimes; and there was some lawlessness there …  sometimes fighting and brawling and alcohol drinking, and maybe even occasionally murders … and of course there was a problem with sanitation, and how they might find enough food to eat; and whether their tents would hold up in a rainstorm, whether they could be warm in the snow, and so forth.

These were desperate men. And the people in the towns, who lived near these homeless encampments, would come to the tent villages, and there would be huge fights and killings and drivings off of people, and so forth.

Then finally it came to the attention of the government, and they tried to think of a solution to this problem. One of the things they came up with, was the idea of hiring these people to do public works projects all over the United States … and often in areas that were rural.

So they would hire them. And in that way these people would have just enough money to support their families. And the Works Progress Administration would hire them; and in that way these people would have just enough money to support their families. And they would transport them to very rural locations.

One of the ideas I have is that then they could get into no trouble; there would be no alcohol; they could get their food supplied for them; and they would be with other people who were in equal economic straits, in a place where there was really nothing to be done but very hard work … with good results too, because among these public works projects of the 1930s, many still remain today. Bridges were built all over the United States. They worked on all kinds of public projects, including roads. And they did great work, very enduring work that is still there. They built the transportation system of America.

During a time when there was no hope, the government helped to supply them with a living for themselves and their families.

A Recent News Story about a Homeless Encampment

That is mom’s story. And so now to get to the story that I saw in the newspaper that I saw in the newspaper the other day: I saw a story about a homeless encampment in San Francisco. There wree problems that were reminiscent of the homeless encampments in the 1930s, problems with lawlessness, sanitation, the use of drugs, and so on.

Consequently the government ordered that everyone leave that area. Some people complied, and some people would not comply. At the time that I read this newspaper article, there were people who were determined to stay and express their right to be where they were.

I feel it is time for the government to consider what can be done to employ these people. For instance, there was a nurse there who had lost her work. What can be done to turn around this situation? How can these people be housed? How can they receive medical care? How can they get hope back into their lives?

It is important. This time is now. We do not want homelessness and lawlessness in our cities. But the answer is not violence. The answer is not government edicts to move on. The answer is some constructive thing that can help them to achieve whatever goals they may have that are positively oriented towards society.

I hope this will be considered in the near future, for America. We thought of it long ago. This is just like a redux; it is a return to something to help them maintain their ideal of the American dream, just as we who are homed hope to maintain that ideal.

On Restorative Justice and Work Ethic Education of Prisoners

There is one more thing that I found out during my recent road trip north through California. I was in Ukiah, the county seat of Mendocino County, where there was a work realignment program that allowed all but violent criminals to work at jobs like emptying trash receptacles and road work, and so forth, and then just be in prison at night.

Link: “Corrections: Alternative Programs,” at Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office …  http://www.mendocinosheriff.com/corrections/workrelease.html Home Detention, Work Release, Work Furlough

I believe this was for people who had been convicted of crimes that were not notably violent. This seems to be the wave of the future for criminal justice: Not so much to house people in hopeless circumstances, where they simply scheme to get back at society for what has been done to them, but instead to allow them a chance to work towards a change in their attitude … a chance to have jobs like other people have, and a chance to be treated more humanely, so that they can begin to learn the true rules of society. I say this because I feel it likely that people who operate from the perspective of the criminal mind have not been granted that kind of view of the way that society functions, that most people get. So this is a chance to do that.

You all take care. Love you lots. Bye bye.

HOW SAN FRANCISCO IS DEALING WITH ITS 6,000 HOMELESS

I recently perused an article that mentioned there are now 6,000 homeless in San Francisco …

LInk: “San Francisco Wants Homeless to Leave Tent Camp, But Some Vow to Fight,” by Thomas Fuller, 26 February 2016 … http://www.nytimes.com/2016/02/27/us/san-francisco-wants-homeless-to-leave-tent-camp-but-some-vow-to-fight.html?_r=0 ..

San Francisco’s response to this problem was to evacuate a tent city on Division Street, citing health problems. Of course, the larger problem is: What to do about the homeless all across America.

THE SHANTYTOWNS OR ‘HOOVERVILLES’ OF THE GREAT DEPRESSION

This Wikipedia article describes the homeless encampments of the Great Depression …

LInk: “Hooverville” … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hooverville ..

In the early 1930s, millions were homeless. Those living on the streets numbered in the hundreds of thousands.

In bitter derision of then-President Herbert Hoover, homeless shantytowns were termed ‘Hoovervilles’.  Homeless families were camped out in New York’s Central Park. There were eight Hoovervilles in Seattle. There was a very large Hooverville in St. Louis as well, with 4 districts and its own mayor.

“The Bonus Army” was a group of World War I veterans who established a Hooverville in the District of Columbia. At its peak, this shantytown numbered 15,000 veterans seeking their benefits. Apparently, there was much violence surrounding this encampment. Here is a very famous photo of veterans fighting with law enforcement …

The Bonus Army shantytown was finally burned down …

THE NEW DEAL AND PUBLIC WORKS TO EMPLOY THE UNEMPLOYED

The New Deal was President Theodore Roosevelt’s answer to the Great Depression. See …

LInk: “New Deal,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Deal#Public_works ..

President Roosevelt’s Public Works program, mentioned in the video and in the Wikipedia article, put many homeless men to work building bridges, dams, courthouses, post offices, and roads. It might be good to have such a government program today to employ the homeless and help build a better America.

Dear Ones,

Here are my thoughts on the United States economy, the American Dream, and things we as a community of humankind might think of working on together for ourselves and for the sake of our children.

Local economies, middle America, small business. Prices and the Consumer Price Index (CPI). How can we have safe places, good businesses, good schools, environments where the American ideals are looked up to?

How can folks in our communities support each other in grassroots ways?

What would be the advantage of smaller homes, electronics-free homes, and sustainable living?

The healing effect of interacting with the Great Outdoors, with church, and with friends.

How can we help our children grow into the ideals of Democratic living that were envisioned when the Constitution was written?

The video is followed by a lightly edited Summary …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I have something to say about the United States right now, and the economy, that really struck me as I traveled about. I only have the video of this place, but I will talk a little about some other places I visited too.

Development Opportunity: Abandoned Planned Subdivision 40 Miles South of Barstow

Right now I am maybe 40 miles south of Barstow. It is desert land. There are mountains here; and I expect, if you live higher up on the mountains, it is cooler in the middle of the summer. It is pretty barren; I will show you. [Shows a curbed, greystone-paved road in the desert.]

You will notice these curbs here in the middle of the desert. There was a road here; this is greystone in the middle. or greystone mixed with granite. And then there was this pretty fancy curb, going along here.

And off in the distance there are, probably water pipes or sewer pipes? … And more of them [piled on the sand] all around here.

And there was this giant subdivision apparently planned here, some time ago. [Shows a planting of trees in the desert.] And you will notice these trees here seem to be part of the plantation that took place, in addition to the curbs and the roads that were set up.

And those trees are still alive; but there were quite a few palm trees that just did not make it. This was a little forest of palm trees that did not make it … See here? [Shows dead palm trees.]

And over here, on the other side, this was the main road into the planned subdivision … [Shows majestically wide, greystone-paved road] … and there are plantings of palm trees all along it. I thought maybe some were still alive, but [zooms to the top of one palm tree] I think maybe they passed on for lack of water.

I just came in the entrance road. Then I took a look at the buildings over here. There are a few buildings … [shows buildings, with graffiti on their outer walls] … all deserted, and then I guess there is a school over there, which is in excellent repair … a good-looking school, on the other side of the [paved] road [outside the subdivision].

But basically, what we have here is somebody’s dream … one person’s American dream. He probably put a lot of money into it … probably bought the land for not much money, then arranged for this build-out … what do you call it, when you get the curbs and the roads in? …. Also, I saw drainage ditches for water to flow through in the wet season.

So they planned for water drainage too, and probably had plans for all the utilities, for people they hoped would buy homes here.

But the few buildings that were on the property are just to wrack and ruin right now. And then this other building over here … [shows a one-story, smallish building] … it had a tile roof. Maybe it was a sales office? … The tiles are all down. Maybe somebody is using them to build a new house, or is demolishing that place? I do not know.

Route 66 Redevelopment and Resettlement Opportunities

So, a little earlier this winter, I was travelling down Route 66. You know Route 66 … the song about that from long ago, and how you get your kicks on Route 66?

Video:  “Rolling Stones – Route 66 1976.” by Hairyblues, 24 march 2014 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BE36QIwwkOc ..

It used to be the main thoroughfare that people used … one of them … from the East to the West, in the United States.

And then later, the superhighways were built, East to West, and all the businesses along Route 66 languished because of it … because most of the traffic would bypass Route 66 and go down these very fast superhighways instead.

But, if you would really like an enjoyable trip through America, I would suggest taking what remains of Route 66, if possible, because it is much more scenic.

One thing I noticed about Route 66 was that it was a little like this [the abandoned planned subdivision]: There were just so many buildings that were boarded up, or half-way demolished or deserted. Or maybe one person would be living in a motel or hotel that used to see a thriving business.

There were some businesses that would cater to the local population, that were open and doing ok. But that was the minority of businesses in those places.

Scenes from Route 66, January 2016. [The below photos are not in the video.]

Not Covered in the News: The Great Slowdown That Is Taking Place in the American Economy

What I got, in those areas, is that the slow-down in the economy in the United States is pretty big … and that there are other issues that may be covered in the news, that are really not relevant to our lives, as Americans, that are taking up the spot, on the news, that should be covered by discussion of what we should do about the local economies.  What should we do. to help Middle America rise to meet its financial needs? What, in the way of business aid? What, in the way of helping people accomplish their dreams in America? You know?

Inflation, Perhaps Not Fully Represented in Changes in the Consumer Price Index (CPI)

And the other thing that I have been noticing lately, whenever I go to a store, is that the prices are … I do not know what has happened, in the last few years, with regard to prices … It is phenomenal, really, how much prices have risen. At least, so it seems to me. I do not know what the cause of it is. It seems to me, too, that this increase in the cost of goods is not fully represented in changes in the consumer price index (the CPI).

Call to Action: Let Congress Consider How to Help Middle America Achieve the American Dream

  • the failure of businesses, in all but the large cities, it seems,
  • and the very greatly increased price of goods, which I do not find that much substantiation for, in the Consumer Price Index,

… these two things add up to economic difficulties in the United States that are not being squarely and honestly faced, I feel.

And I hope, during the coming year, that Congress has a chance to look at all this, and hear the stories of Americans, and rise to the aid of the average person, who needs a safe place and a good business, good schools, to keep his or her family safe, and to let them grow up in an environment where the American ideals are cherished and espoused and looked up to … rather than a crime-ridden place that is full of bad examples of the way to Wisdom and Love and Light … the kind of place where a family can feel that their lives are not threatened, as they go about their daily activities.

But instead, the community looks, one family to the next family, for support and understanding and assistance in grassroots growing of local businesses, and sustainable living. What do you say?

Would a Changeup to Sustainable Living Negatively or Positively Affect Quality of Life in America?

Suppose we had much smaller houses, with a lot more space around them … Would not that be easier to heat and to keep cool in the summertime? Would not the prices of utilities be lower? And outside, the children could be playing, right? Would not that be cool?

Would Less Ownership of Electronics Abate Neighborhood Theft?

And the other thing I am thinking is that, the question might be raised … family to family … Whether we really need the electronics that are so sought after by the break-in experts, and the thieves, and so forth. What would happen, if our family did without television sets and computers and handhelds, and so forth? How would our quality of life be affected? Would it be worse, or would it be better? Would we be stronger in our ethics and our values with, or without, the virtual reality?

I made up my own mind about this long ago, and decided I did not really want television in my life. I did not want that kind of entertainment; that my entertainment would be the Great Outdoors, and church, and friends … playing dominoes, and so forth.

What Can We Do to Make America a Better Place to Live?

My thought is: What can we all do, to make America a better place to live? More safe for our children? And what can we do to help our children grow into the ideals of democratic living that were envisioned when the Constitution was written? That is what I think. We have a lot of questions to answer right now.

You all, take care. I love you lots. I wish you great abundance, and prosperity, and happiness … each and every one.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

THE PROPHECY OF THE POPES, BY SALVATORE RUSSO

In 2013 Salvatore Russo had some predictions regarding global and personal changes resulting from the Shift, that to me, are some of the best that anyone has channeled regarding the changes now taking place on Earth, and the concomitant choices available to each of us who are in form on Earth today.

Salvatore Russo’s Section “Coming Changes”

Salvatore Russo’s section “Coming Changes,” I feel, had best be read in its entirety, so that it can be cast in the light of each reader’s understanding of the history of Earth so far …

Link: “Saturn Retrograde: The Prophecy of the Popes,” by Salvatore Russo, in Spirit of Ma’at: Truth Brings Clarity … http://spiritofmaat.com/magazine/march-2013-spring-equinox-edition/saturn-retrograde-the-prophecy-of-the-popes/ … Search the subheading: Coming Changes

This section has a list of changes we may look for in the coming years, including changes in …

  • the financial arena
  • economic blocks
  • third-world debt
  • upgrades in the Light quotient of world leadership
  • currency market fluctuations
  • turning of people inward, toward communion with God; this more so than adherence to form and societal expectations with regard to participation in religious institutions
  • less coercion and more free will in dealings of nation with nation
  • deaths [and to this I would add ‘going to ground’ or faked death] of what he terms ‘masonic leadership’ [My term for this is ‘Controllers’.]
  • freeing up of world resources such as food, medicine, and money, for more egalitarian use by all her peoples
  • greater freedoms, and stronger human rights, for the peoples of all nations
  • and worldly signs … such as fire, flood, and so on … that are sent by God to help people achieve greater brotherly love, and a stronger sense of family and community, so that they may together build a greater and brighter future for themselves and for their children

Salvatore Russo’s Section “Microcosmos”

I also liked the section “Microcosmos” in Salvatore Russo’s prophecy, That section lists the many personal, individual themes that will be clearing in the coming times. One need only look to the titles of movies now playing in the theaters to know which these may be.

The table of contents in my blog lists many of the items on Mr. Russo’s list as well, such as: transformation, crime, fear, vengeance, psychology, health, empowerment, clair gifts, and mastery of mind.

I like Salvatore Russo’s list very much, as it is quite complete, and eloquently phrased, in case you would like to read it …

Link: “Saturn Retrograde: The Prophecy of the Popes,” by Salvatore Russo, in Spirit of Ma’at: Truth Brings Clarity … http://spiritofmaat.com/magazine/march-2013-spring-equinox-edition/saturn-retrograde-the-prophecy-of-the-popes/ … Search the subheading: Microcosmos

PROPHECY: TEMPORAL PREDICTION AND TIMELINE FLUCTUATIONS DUE TO THE MULTITEMPORAL NATURE OF THE UNIVERSE

I see that Salvatore Russo’s blog refers to a time of Saturn retrogrades in the year 2013, and is continuing to unfold, for most people on Earth, into the year 2019 and onward.

I would like to explain a little about prophecy and the multitemporal nature of the universe. People sometimes say to themselves: This was prophesied to occur in such-and-such a year. That year has come and gone, and the prophecy has not occurred. Clearly … they say … the prophecy was false. This way of thinking occurs when people are trapped in the causal network, through use of their left brain solely.

On Expanding Our Understanding of Time Through Whole Brain Thinking

As we develop whole brain thinking, we begin to get a feel for multitemporality, and for timeline merges and splits and jumps; for rollbacks and roll-forwards (‘previews’) and repeating loops.

We start to have fun with time, much in the way that a child might play with a skateboard in a skateboard park, or a surfer might play with the ocean waves when the surf is up. We begin to have confidence in the notion that we can choose an optimum Awareness timeline; that we can create a prophecy, select a timeline, and change our future.

My blog category: Mastery of mind – subconscious – unconscious mind has more on achieving whole brain thinking.

Timeline Transformation as a Cause of Dark Prophecies Not Manifesting

When we prophecy, and then for masses of people, that prophecy does not immediately manifest, there are several possibilities. Especially in the case of very Dark prophecies, the timeline, through God’s grace, is often merged with a brighter timeline, and transformed to the Light.

I notice, today, that the movie industry is bringing forth Dark timeline after Dark timeline, and placing them before the public eye. We Lightworkers encounter the Dark dreams so manifest as astral stories sometimes sparked, in the movie plot writer’s mind, by single instances in the news, or by a word or phrase they read or hear, which brings forth the emotion of fear or the desire to injure others.

In my understanding, their subconscious mind then creates a plot based on that feeling of fear or anger, with a tiny spark seed of truth in it (the event about which they read or hear, or which they see).

It is up to the LIghtworkers, pathfinders, wayshowers, and healers to transform these Dark story lines to the Light, when we encounter them as astral stories in Earth’s noosphere. In that way, the emotions of fear and anger may be transformed to the emotions of love and Light. In that way the noosphere is cleansed, and the energy field of Earth is uplifted.

A Very Delayed Timeline: The Second Coming of Christian Prophecy

In many other instances, there is a ‘news headline’ disparity to do with prophecy: The news of the prophecy does not happen for most people until some time later.

This happened with Christ’s prophecy of the Second Coming. His followers sold all their possessions; they endured harsh poverty, travels through difficult and unsafe terrain, imprisonment, and death. They forewent family life as well, because they felt that the Second Coming would happen during their lifetime. Yet the Second Coming is only just now manifesting, some 2000 years later.

The Hathor Channelings: Tom Kenyon’s Prophetic Timelines

Along similar lines, in Tom Kenyon’s work, the Hathors channelings are dated from 2003 onward …

Link: “Tom Kenyon,” by Tom Kenyon … https://tomkenyon.com … Search the section: Hathors

These channelings include many prophecies that I find to be very much ‘on the mark’. In Tom Kenyon’s Awareness timeline, they were manifest as early as the year 2003 and the years that followed. Yet for the Awareness timeline of many people of Earth … as evidenced by mass media and newspaper headlines … the prophecies are still in the process of unfolding, and are not yet evident to their mental minds.

Signs in the Clouds: Alice Clagett’s Prophetic Timelines

In the same way, my prophecies feel to me as if they are unfolding in the Now, yet it may be some years before I see them in newspaper headlines, which to me represent the Awareness timeline of many people on Earth (although not my own Awareness timeline).

Salvatore Russo’s Prophetic Timelines

As mentioned above, the events named in Salvatore Russo’s work began to manifest in 2013, and are still in the process of playing out, in many timelines. The temporal lag, as explained above, is typical of multitemporal timeline prediction.

Thus for me, his predictions are as true today, as they were in 2013 … in fact, perhaps more so, as to my seeming, a prediction past its predicted time of occurrence adheres to itself greater and greater urgency of its unfolding, like a swooping down of great and inevitable forces, or a marching onward of the unfolding laws of the ever greater love and Light in our Multiverse.

This feeling of impendency and of ever greater pressure of inevitability has to do with Light prophecies rather than Dark prophecies, as the onward course of the Universe, and that of almost all Souls, and of all sentient beings, has the force of evolution towards greater understanding of God through which Creation emanates.

MY THOUGHTS ON SAFELY NAVIGATING THE ROUGH WATERS OF CHANGE

I note the timeline of Salvatore Russo’s predicted changes was apparently pretty brief. By my lights, they have only just started to manifest from 2013 through 2019, in the general arena of humankind. I suppose it depends on the timeline each person chooses, as to how quickly they appear to manifest for that individual.

My own recommendation is to stay out of the political-economic-financial scene insofar as possible. Where the personality intersects with these, maintain a low key, I feel. Disclosures may unfold, as Salvatore Russo predicted. The global economy may change, as may finance, the political scene, and so on. But what are these to you, in actuality?

Far more important in these times of change, I feel, is to be of clear and steady heart, to transform all incoming dense energy strands with love and Light and joy, and to promptly forgive each and every instance of judgment or blame coming my way. To be like Christ, insofar as possible. To manifest Christ consciousness. To be that Light by which all may rise to conscious Atransforwareness. To just be that.

A person’s job may change, or they may hold their job differently, Their family grouping may change, or they may hold their family differently. Their timeline may shift completely, over and over again, if they use the timeline optimization technique …

Activation of Light: Timeline Optimization
by the Hathors, through Alice B. Clagett

Spirit to Team,
Optimize timelines!
For the All, through Free Will!

For me, the notion of change became a pretty cool event, once I got used to it. Every day is, to me, the very best of all possible days. Everything new is totally cool. I am into it!

Like the familiar call: Surf’s up!
Like a grand slalom down a snowy slope,
Life’s full of twists and turns, and wonderful surprises!

And so, I greet each of you on this beautiful day, in this best of all timelines, for …

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

This video is about corporate ethics, and corporate responsibility to the global welfare. There is a description of the early decision to form the United States government with a Senate (representing plutocracy, or government by the wealthy) and the House of Representatives (representing ‘the common man’). The video is about how this model might be applied to corporate governance for the greater global good.

A ‘what if’ is also presented regarding putative corporate ownership of alternate energy patents, the contentious issue of fracking, and the common global good. There is a lightly edited Summary after the video.

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I had some thoughts today about corporate ethics, and corporate responsibility to the global welfare, that I would like to share with you, just by way of one avenue of approach (of which there are many).

I was thinking about how much power the global corporations have right now, in the world; and how, quite frequently they see their responsibility to be to their shareholders, and to their Boards, and to their presidents, rather than to the global good.

So the issue that I see right now is that, in some contexts at least, the corporations are striving for the good of a small group of people, rather than for the good of the world; and in my opinion, the good of the world is very important as well.

Early United States Decisions on Governance

I thought back to the early history of the United States … about how they were figuring out about governance; how they would set up the governance of the United States. And back then … back in the old days … there was a somewhat parallel situation.

And that had to do with the great landholders of that era … of which George Washington, for instance, was one … as opposed to all the other people (actually, at that time, only all the other men in the original colonies) … and who would govern.

And so naturally, the people that had most of the land were the ones that wanted to take control of the government of the United States. But there was also popular opinion to consider. And so what finally got hammered out was the Senate and the House of Representatives … two different governing bodies.

The Senate originally was more oriented towards the landholders. And the House of Representatives was more oriented toward the common man. And so, in the governance of the United States, was hammered out an agreement that took into consideration both wealth and the free will of all the people (all the men, in that case) in the United States at that time.

Might the Bicameral Model Be Useful in the Ethical Governance of Corporations?

My question is whether this model could be used in the ethical governance of corporations. In this instance the ‘Senate’ would be the board of directors of a corporation, the president, and the shareholders.

And since these corporations are global, by proportionate gross domestic product, I think that the members of each nation would also be able to participate in the governance of corporations, in some fashion.

This is just an idea that I am throwing out there; this is a thought I have, of ways to help corporations come into a new understanding of their ethical responsibility with regard to the world.

A ‘What If’ Regarding Alternative Energy

And along those lines, I will just give you a ‘for instance’ … which I do not know to be true or note true … I will just give you a ‘what if’. What if the oil corporations, or the transport corporation … some sector of corporations … or maybe all the corporations in every economic sector, for all I know … had bought out all the patents on alternate energy that were totally viable. Suppose they had done that.

And suppose this issue that is so controversial in this State of Colorado … this issue of fracking, which is, according to some of the landholders, is ruining the well water of the ranches and farms and so forth … this issue of extracting the last dollar of profit out of oil, before oil is completely depleted from the globe, could be alleviated by simply setting forth the patents of alternate energy that are available, but ‘locked up’ by the corporations …

Could this be true, that they are doing that? If it were true, then they would be acting against the common interests globally.

This is just a ‘what if’. This is the kind of ‘what if’ that we might be looking at, in all the different sectors, and all the different corporations, to see how we could come to terms with the profit motive, as compared to the ethical motive of uplifting and sustaining humankind.

Well, that is all I have for you today. I wish you all … whether or not you are in business … the greatest opportunity for harmony and love and prosperity that is possible in the world today. Bye bye.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Postscript on More Democratic Global Alternatives

And then I am thinking … just paying attention to how, in the United States at first, it was men that had the right to vote … and later on, women had the right to vote … and so there was a loosening up, into a greater form of democracy in that way …

The Gross Domestic Product (GDP) model, as a weighting factor for the voice of each nation in the corporate bicameral scheme, would weight corporate ethical considerations in favor of developed countries, which more likely also have the most corporate shareholders.

It could be that GDP model would be amended, later on, to national population, as a weighting factor for the voice of each nation in the corporate bicameral scheme … so that greater plebeian or democratic base for the global welfare aspect of corporate responsibility.

And so at that point … where the census of a nation came into play … it would place the responsibility less in the hands of people that have enough money to be shareholders, and more into the hands of the people that are in desperate need of housing and livelihood and clean water and so forth.

I believe that would greatly facilitate moving into world harmony.

SUMMARY OF VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice.

On Knowing the Fine Character of Our Armed Services Personnel as Opposed to Mental Concepts of War and Politics

It is early morning, here where I am. This place where I am, there was a group of young military people that were taking a little break from their duties … I guess they call it R and R? … and they had the rooms all around me last night. And it was kind of cool, in a way, because, even though I am an old person, it was fun to see how exuberant they were, how full of hope and joy and heroic courage, and clean, high-spirited good humor. There was not an ounce of cruelty or meanness or small-spiritedness in them. They were really wonderful people, both men and women, that were here last night having a wonderful time.

It was a refreshing relief to me, to see the young people, and to see how beautiful and pure their Spirit is these days. And how beautiful and pure the Spirits of all humans is becoming these days. It was terrific.

Sometimes we get caught up in notions about war and politics, and so forth. We forget that the important thing about being human is the feelings we have; the experiences we have through the feeling world. The mind is a rather dry thing, do you not think? And the feeling world is full of the energy of life.

These young people were like that: They were full of the energy of life. I did not even mind that I could not fall asleep, because they were having such a wonderful time. It was just terrific! I hope there are many more such experiences for them in the future. It is great!

On the Experience of Cellular Joy as Opposed to Mental Concepts About the Opposite Gender

What with all the young people here, there was quite a level of endocrine gland experience in the feeling world last night. And I wanted to talk a little about the future and the endocrine system, and thought processes about sexuality, as I understand that this is a concern for people that are considering the Ascension process.

These are my preliminary thoughts…. Speaking from my own point of view, as the level of Light increases on Earth, it seems to me that the cells of my body are becoming more and more intensely joyful. Intensely experiencing the joy of being alive. And it is becoming more and more obvious to me, how the mental world has distorted this joy in the world, until this Light started to come in.

So, on the clair plane, I hear the stories of people regarding sexuality and romance, and I hear a very different story from the men, than from the women.

As people become more sentient, they are beginning to notice the differences, and actually see the thinking of their sexual partner … of their wife, of their very best friend … whoever it is. They are beginning to understand that their mind is not creating the mental filter that is true regarding what is really taking place during the act of making love.

This is leading to upset on the part of both men and women.

  • For the women: Our partner is not who we thought he was … not Prince Charming, not the hero of our age.
  • And for the men, our partner is not the highly sexual female companion who thinks only about making love; she has many other concerns.

All across the world, apparently, people are beginning to notice this: That the person they spend their time with, and have a romantic relationship with, is not the person they thought he or she was. This is true of both men and women.

On Moving from the Nightmare Vision of the ‘Great Divide’ Between the Thoughts and Feelings of People to a State of Cellular Joy

So for me, watching this happen, it is a little like walking through a nightmare reality, because the thoughts that the people have, and the feelings they have, are so separate one from the other.

It is like dipping into a nightmare, when I feel the level of my cellular joy go down a little. And this can happen kajillion times an hour, you know? But typically, what happens is, the cellular joy sinks down during the day, because of something that I am doing, or thinking, or feeling. And then I notice the dip. And then I take a step to lift the cellular joy. And then I find myself in a totally different reality …

  • One where anything is possible.
  • One where co-creation happens.
  • One where there is no compulsion.
  • One where the possibilities for this reality are infinite.

And over and over again during the day this happens: The early morning cellular joy, the dips, the steps that lift the joy back up. It is kind of incredible, really.

Cellular Joy: A Retraceable Adventure into the Unknown

This morning, I was speaking with some friends on the clair plane, and the topic came up: What is it like to place your Awareness somewhere other than the sexual drive? Such as, for instance, on cellular joy? And to hear everyone in the world engrossed in that feeling and that thought of sexuality? So there was some pensiveness on the other end of the clair ‘chat line’.

My only response is this … If you feel that you are losing something, then stay where you are.

But if you would like to experiment, know that it is not a permanent change; it is simply an experiment. So you can move in and out of the state of bliss anytime you want, and still retain the old.

For myself, what I find is experience continues onward, the state of essential beingness has become far more precious to me than the state of wishing things were otherwise. I do not want to live in that world of desiring something that is not here anymore, because that pulls me out of my essential center, and out of my joy.

If you really want to keep what you have, know that you can hang in there. If you want to experiment with a new feeling of being, rather than wanting or doing, why, you can do that too. There are infinite possibilities. And the choice is yours. Completely yours.

Love you all. Take care.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Uplifting America . by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 11 May 2013; revised

  • John Wayne

Dear Ones,

I have been going to the Senior Center here in Colorado for a few weeks, and before the daily meal we all say the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America. I have to admit, I hadn’t said it since grade school, and I had to fudge on a few words at first. But shortly I had it down, and the thing I noticed was, how speaking the words changed my attitude toward the United States. So much so that, I’d like to propose:

Of all the things we can do to help our nation survive these tumultuous times, this may be one of the most important, and simplest, things – to recite the Pledge of Allegiance once daily.

In case you would like to give it a try, here are a few renditions, sorted by age group …

YOUNG

JOHN WAYNE

If you don’t live in the United States, maybe there’s an equivalent for your country – if not a Pledge, then maybe a national song?

Just think! Our attitudes towards our countries may have more to do with global politics than any social justice campaign!

Love by the Ounce . a poem by Alice B. Clagett

Published on 24 February 2013

Dear Ones,

LOVE BY THE OUNCE
a poem by Alice B. Clagett

We sell our selves down the river by the ounce, not by the pound,
As politicians sell the common good to special interest groups.
Little by little. Principle by principle. Love by tiny hopeful love.
Like a baby crying for its mother
Like a viola longing for a bow
Like the self, fabricating other
As the still stream dreams the raging torrent
As Earth longs for the presence of her children
Like grace, never ending, never known

….

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
