    Not a Pretender,

    I am sure not all Navy Seals or Green Berets are psychopaths, but all psychopaths, imho, who aren't locked up, will be drawn to positions where they can wield a lot of power and the military and the police are two organizations they would be drawn to. Let me rephrase this. Those with psychopathic trait---a pure psychopath, very high on Dr. Robert Hare's checklist, would likely be too anti-social for the comraderie and bonding necessary to get along with their own team members.

    hmm ...
    Neil Kramer

    51 mins

    Empire is rapidly losing its preferred state of invisibility. Open talk now of deep state, shadow government, globalist agendas etc. Millions of ordinary people beginning to recognize that empire exists and is our common hidden enemy - not each other. Soon, it is going to be even more fatally exposed. This has forced a shortening of their timeline. Hence, we see, empire has gone all-out on international destabilization tactics in the guise of controlled 'radical groups'. Old trick. In reality, nothing whatsoever to do with equality, racism, police, justice etc. That is a TOTAL DECEPTION. The façade is organic grassroots movements demanding social justice in the face of systemic prejudice. Completely false. Parroting absurd empire control slogans only causes further harm. The real purpose (higher up the chain of command) is the orchestration of worldwide social disorder - via covert agent provocateurs and conditioned chumps - with the eventual goal of introducing the apparently peaceful solution of imperial socialism. This is EVIL. Don't feed into it.

    The vast majority of humans are GOOD. We are not the problem. Need we reiterate that every African, Asian, and European soul is equal in the eyes of God and in the hearts of all rational humans? We KNOW this. What we are witnessing is the end phase of classroom earth's teaching in good and evil. We are being tested. Honesty and courage needed. We must seek the truth like never before; at home, at work, in the grocery store, with friends and family, everywhere. The truth about covid, race, education, gender, sexuality, ecology, history, spirit, morality, God. Become ADEPT in discerning and telling truth. No need to preach. Sow seeds skillfully. There are times for zeal and power, and times for subtlety and diplomacy. A time to speak and a time to listen. Together, in truth, in God, we will overcome this supernatural evil. REMEMBER, we wrestle NOT AGAINST FLESH AND BLOOD, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against SPIRITUAL WICKEDNESS IN HIGH PLACES. Eph 6:12. Not figurative. Literal. TRUTH.

    Hi Giovanni,

    It looks like Neil Kramer is associated with Project Veritas, which I'm somewhat familiar with. Here is some more information on them:

    Project Veritas is an American right-wing activist group.[1][2][3][4] The group uses "disguises and hidden cameras to uncover supposed liberal bias and corruption".[1] The group is known for producing deceptively edited videos about media organizations and left-leaning groups.[5][2][6][7][8][9][10] In a 2018 book on propaganda and disinformation in U.S. politics, three Harvard University scholars refer to Project Veritas as a "right-wing disinformation outfit".[11]


    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Project_Veritas

    What raised my suspicion about Neil Kramer is he used the word 'truth' twice in one fairly short paragraph. The number of times the word truth is used, is inversely proportional to how much truth any text contains, imho. I hope I haven't offended you and that this man isn't a favorite thinker of yours. His website is super beautiful. The photography is exquisite. He gets high marks for that!

    Thinking

    Neil is a real life friend of mind (ten years now), and i can guarantee you
    he is not what your insinuating he is ... He's a progressive ... And he
    lives out here in the Great Northwest with his lovely wife ... he is
    originally from Manchester England.

    Note he is though a close friend of Mel Fabregas of Veritas TV who has
    interviewed him many times on his podcast.

    So lets just leave it at that Missy.

    PS ~ note the name is how its spelled giovonni.

    Thumbs Up

    I will share this here ...

    Neil Kramer

    "Neil Kramer is a writer, philosopher, and esotericist. His work focuses principally on spirituality, mysticism, metaphysics, and consciousness. He explores the relationship between esoteric spirituality and many of the social and cultural factors that influence our everyday lives. Attention is drawn to embracing truth, confronting the negative, and transforming self.

    The author of The Unfoldment, Kramer is renowned for his broad experiential knowledge of interconnected philosophical, spiritual, mystical, Hermetic, and alchemical disciplines, which he uses to formulate his cosmology and practice.

    Kramer has spent time with several orders dedicated to the wisdom of the ancient world. His synthesis of spiritual wisdom, social critique, anti-authoritarianism, deep knowledge-base, inventive language, and no-nonsense approach, has helped to develop his reputation as a widely respected figure in mystical, spiritual, and alternative communities."

    In his own brilliant words ...

    For Whatever Its Worth: OG, I think I understand your point...in today's world the line between left and right is dotted. It is why I always go over the line and into the person's heart, it is where the real truth 'lies'. I don't know anything about these folks, so I can't comment on that.

    I just saw your post...if he wasn't kidding that is sad...

    You know what might be worse...me. When my daughter was that age sometimes she would become enraged and I couldn't help but laugh because it was so cute...I feel now that I was invalidating her feelings and that is one of the things that 'bugs' me about my parenting. I always tried strenuously to explain to her that my parenting mistakes were always caused by my unconditional love for her...I hope she was able to integrate that into her psyche.

    Question

    Meanwhile over at the 'Big Dumpling' ...

    Beijing in ‘wartime emergency
    mode’ after new coronavirus
    cluster emerges



    Chinese police guard the entrance to the closed Xinfadi market in Beijing today.

    "Beijing is in “wartime emergency mode” after a new cluster of coronavirus cases was detected at one of the continent’s biggest markets in the southwestern corner of the city, officials said.

    Out of 517 people tested at the Xinfadi market, 45 turned out to have COVID-19, district official Chu Junwei said Saturday, while announcing the market would be shut down and tourism and sports events banned in the capital, Reuters reported.

    More than 10 neighborhoods surrounding Xinfadi — which claims to be the largest wholesale food market in Asia — were also locked down with 24/7 guards in place.

    “In accordance with the principle of putting the safety of the masses and health first, we have adopted lockdown measures for the Xinfadi market and surrounding neighborhoods,” Chu said, adding officials were in “wartime emergency mode.”

    None of the people who tested positive were showing symptoms, Chu said.

    Restaurants across China stopped serving food containing raw seafood or animal products following reports in state media that the virus was detected on chopping boards used for imported salmon at the market.

    On Saturday, officials were casing the neighborhood for new infections. A Reuters reporter said a government worker knocked on the door of her home asking if she had visited the market, where 1,500 tons of seafood, 18,000 tons of vegetables and 20,000 tons of fruit are traded daily."

    Question

    #Trending ...

    Is it Their Truth or Your Truth? The Concept of Truth Ownership

    Teal Swan



    It is one thing to grasp a concept and another to say that a concept is your #truth. For example, I may do a video in which I present the truth that ‘there is no such thing as self-sabotage’. People will listen to the #concept and grasp the idea in and of itself. But do they really 'get it' to the degree that it becomes their truth?

    Hi Pretender,

    No, he wasn't joking. He was a cloudy man with intermittent periods of brutality. Your daughter sounds lucky. There is nothing wrong with laughing at kids when they are angry, because their anger comes from such a place of the purely ridiculous most of the time. Kids are really resilient. They can take a lot.

    Hey Gio, I must have missed when you placed a therapist's couch in your thread.

    Or, was it an outhouse?

    Oh, the mortification of getting old.
