    Sen. Bernie Sanders's 2020 presidential campaign late Monday enthusiastically welcomed lobbyist backlash over the senator's new proposal to dramatically curb the power of corporate money in politics and bar the Democratic National Committee from taking cash from big business.

    "Good!" Sanders tweeted in response to a story in The Hill that quoted several lobbyists opposed to the senator's plan, which would ban corporate donations to the Democratic Party Convention in Milwaukee if Sanders becomes the presidential nominee. As Politico reported last month, Democratic operatives have already begun seeking lobbyist help with financing the event.

    Stewart Verdery, CEO of public affairs firm Monument Advocacy, warned that "telling companies who would like to partner with the party to take their ball and go home will easily feed into an anti-capitalist motif."

    "On the substance side, hosting a convention is a major endeavor that can strap the budgets of parties and cities—the money has to come from somewhere and cutting off corporate donations may further depress interest in hosting a convention," said Verdery. "On the image side, the Democrats always have to balance their populist rhetoric with quieter outreach to the business community."

    The Hill also granted anonymity to a Democratic lobbyist who bashed Sanders's proposal as a "desperate" attempt to outdo Sen. Elizabeth Warren's (D-Mass.) anti-corruption plan.

    "This is simply a game of one-upmanship from a desperate campaign that doesn’t have the ability to draft a 27-page thesis like Warren," said the lobbyist.

    The Sanders campaign—which proudly touts a list of "anti-endorsements" on its website—was unmoved by the lobbyists' criticism. In fact, as deputy campaign manager Ari Rabin-Havt put it, lobbyist outrage over the proposal "is not a bug—it's a feature."

    Warren Gunnels, Sanders's senior adviser, tweeted: "We welcome their hatred."

    In a statement to The Hill, Sanders national policy director Josh Orton pointed to the senator's grassroots fundraising model—which brought the campaign $25.3 million from an average donation of just $18 in the third quarter of 2019—and said "corporate lobbyists will never buy influence with Bernie, period."

    "Bernie Sanders is building an unprecedented grassroots campaign to end corruption," said Orton, "and as a nominee would host a grassroots conventions for delegates, party members, teachers, workers, nurses, farmers, and students."

    SOLOMON'S TREASURE FOUND

    Yes, where is this precious treasure?

    * What happened to the hidden gold of Solomon’s Temple?
    * Has the most priceless artifact on earth – the Ark of the Covenant - now been found?
    * Is its location really known?

    The truth will stagger you! So much so, that the host government walks on a knife edge. So you won’t see it yet.

    And linked with these tantalising questions, are others:

    * Did Phoenician ships really come to the Americas?
    * Where did King Solomon get his gold?
    * What was the SINGLE stated reason that his magnificent Temple was constructed?

    And you can bury the critics.

    PHOENICIAN VOYAGES

    Do you want the truth? Navigation across open ocean was no problem to these explorers.

    Due to the insufficient attention paid to this aspect of the subject, we have tended to belittle the size and sophistication of Phoenician shipping.

    There is evidence that they had the benefit of sophisticated instruments and large, fast, modern vessels carrying over 500 people. This will be a surprise to many readers.

    SILVER AS CHEAP AS STONES

    Anyway, suddenly, in the 10th century BC we find gold and silver in such abundance in Jerusalem that Israel’s king Solomon “made silver to be in Jerusalem as stones for abundance.” So reports the Hebrew book of 1 Kings. (ch.10:27)

    And why? "... for the king had at sea a navy of Tarshish with the navy of Hiram: once in three years came the navy of Tarshish, bringing gold and silver, ivory, and apes, and peacocks.” (v. 22)

    Hiram was a Phoenician king. And the Israelites and Phoenicians were allies. They sent out global expeditions together.

    There can be no question that the peacocks came from south-East Asia. But whence the abundance of silver?

    OUR WOEFUL MODERN IGNORANCE

    Because of the depth of ignorance into which Europe fell during the Dark Ages, at times we are apt to forget how advanced were the ideas of the ancients, and how much they knew about the earth and about astronomy and navigation.

    Harvard professor Barry Fell concurs. (“America BC: Ancient Settlers in the New World”, p.88)

    Hands on researchers in South America are firmly convinced that the Phoenicians traded with South America. Today there is a whole library full of their reports. The Phoenicians even left inscriptions there.

    KING SOLOMON’S RIVER

    It now appears that the Americas were the source of much of the gold and silver that found its way to Solomon’s temple.

    There is good reason to believe that the ships of King Solomon (975-935 BC) had once come to the Amazon; that the gold countries of Ophir, Tarshish and Parvaim were NOT to be looked for in the Old World at all, BUT HERE in the Amazon region on the Rio Solimoes, Solomon’s River.

    But that is another subject (and it is covered in my book “Ark of the Covenant”).

    SOLOMON – FACT OR FABLE?

    By the way, has anyone told you that Solomon never existed? Well, you can lay that idea to rest. Here are just a few reasons why:

    * Israeli geologists announced on January 12, 2003 that they had examined a stone tablet dating to 800 BC which detailed repair plans for the Jewish Temple of King Solomon. Tests confirmed it to be authentic.

    * Independently kept copies of a treaty that King Solomon made with Hiram, king of the Phoenician city of Tyre were preserved by the Phoenicians.

    * An independent Ethiopian epic, the “Kebra Nagast”, written about 850 BC, tells the story of an Ethiopian queen’s visit to King Solomon of Israel and of the enormous riches and gifts that he showered upon her.

    * An ancient record in Srinagar, India, declares that Solomon visited there.

    * A monument inscription found in 1984 on the eastern shore of the Gulf of Aqaba bears King Solomon’s name.

    You can believe it. Solomon was real.

    CRITICS OUT OF DATE

    Biblical writings have come under attack from some critics.

    These critics, acting with woefully incomplete information, have simply rushed to judgement.

    About 150 years ago, there was virtually no modern biblical archaeology to “test” their assertions.

    The critics did not know that hundreds of later historical and archaeological discoveries would support the Bible’s accuracy. And in surprising detail.

    Today, there is no excuse. From numerous independent records we know that the people, places and events the biblical writers wrote about, were real.

    From a hands-on field archaeologist, here is the bottom line.Time and continued research have demonstrated that historically the Bible is better informed than its critics.

    SOLOMON’S MAGNIFICENT TEMPLE

    The tremendous wealth that poured into Israel from these global expeditions can be appreciated to some extent when we reflect on the magnificence of Solomon’s Temple.

    It has been calculated that this famous building contained 86 tons of gold and 126 tons of silver.

    INCREDIBLE CONSTRUCTION METHOD

    And the technological expertise involved was ingenious.

    The first book of Kings reports that it "was built of stone made ready before it was brought thither: so that there was neither hammer nor axe nor any tool of iron heard in the house, while it was in building.” (1 Kings 6:7)

    SIZE AND BEAUTY

    Can you imagine it? Some of those massive stones were as long as a bus... from 10 to 40 feet long by 6 feet wide. One of them at least weighed approximately 445 tons.

    They were pre-cut, then transported from the quarry and slid into place so accurately that it would be difficult to find the seams.

    The splendour of Solomon’s Temple would defy comprehension.

    Nowhere on the face of this planet did a structure of such size and beauty command the awe of man.

    Travellers from many lands would travel great distances just to set eyes on this Temple, never to be disappointed.

    Its array of shining metals and precious stones was dazzling beyond belief.

    This enormous Temple featured planks of cedar and cypress - fir trees hand-crafted to expose their elegant grains.

    The entire structure was overlaid on the inside with gold. Precious stones of onyx and marble were seen in abundance.

    Silver, brass and iron were used in the Temple. Outer courtyards and inner chambers were adorned with high-reaching palm trees and colourful flowers.

    Using modern equipment capable of determining very precisely the isotopic content of different metals, it has been shown that the lead used in drainpipes in the area of Solomon’s Temple came from the Mendip Hills in Somerset, Britain.

    This type of analysis is made possible because lead samples from different locations contain varying amounts of the isotopes of lead, resulting from the decay of radioactive materials.

    Similarly with tin. The Temple was adorned with plenty of bronze, and this alloy was made by adding tin to copper in the smelting. The presence of tin caused the copper to become much harder and less easily tarnished.

    Tests show that it was British tin that was used by Solomon. The date was about 1000 BC.

    MYSTERIOUS TECHNOLOGY USED

    Two cast pillars of brass stood boldly at the entrance.According to an old tradition, the two great pillars were hollow. Stored inside them, according to the same tradition, were "ancient records" and "valuable writings" pertaining to the past of the Hebrew people.

    And included among these records had been information on something known as the shamir. (Alexander Home, “King Solomon’s Temple in Masonic Tradition”, p.219)

    You may wonder, what was this mysterious shamir?

    Moses had instructed his people not to use "any iron tool" in the construction of the holy places.

    And Solomon likewise directed that no hammers, axes or chisels should be used to cut and dress the stone blocks with which the Temple would be built.

    Instead, according to Jewish sources, he provided the workmen with an ancient device called the shamir, that had been used in the time of Moses to engrave writing on the precious stones of the high priest’s breastplate. (Louis Ginsberg, “The Legends of the Jews”, vol I, p.34 and vol. IV, p.166)

    Known as "the stone that splits rocks," the shamir was capable of cutting the toughest materials without friction or heat. This included "the remarkable property of cutting the hardest of diamonds".

    There must have been something special about the shamir, for it was said:

    “The shamir may not be put in an iron vessel for safekeeping, nor in any metal vessel: it would burst such a receptacle asunder. It is kept wrapped up in a woolen cloth, and this in turn is placed in a lead basket filled with barley bran.”With the destruction of the Temple the shamir vanished.

    Islamic traditions concerning the shamir parallelled those of the Jews, with the additional statement that it had been quite noiseless while it was at work.

    VOTAN’S TRIP TO MEDITERRANEAN

    From the other side of the world we have the record of Votan,the first historian of the Maya, who lived around 1000 BC. Votan had come originally from the Phoenician city of Chivim, on the eastern Mediterranean coast.

    He records that he later made four or more visits to his former home.

    On one of these trips he visited a great city wherein a magnificent Temple was in the course of construction, thought by a number of researchers to have been Jerusalem.

    Was it Solomon’s Temple that visitors from as far away as the Americas came to see? Possibly. According to other ancient records, "all the kings of the earth sought the presence of Solomon, to hear his wisdom.”

    BUILT SPECIFICALLY FOR THE ARK

    Why did King Solomon build his famous Temple? Would you have guessed this?: It was for one purpose - to house the Ark of the Covenant! That reason was actually given in the records they left behind.

    That magnificent Temple of fabulous wealth and world renown was specifically conceived and built, for what purpose, but to enshrine the Ark of the Covenant! That was its reason to be!

    The actual room known as the Holy of Holies, in which the Ark stood, was a perfect cube - and immensely strong. It measured just over 34 feet long, by 34 feet wide, by 34 feet high.

    Its floor, walls and ceiling were lined with fine gold, weighing an estimated 45,000 pounds, that is, more than 20 tons! And it was all riveted with golden nails.

    So, what was so important about the Ark of the Covenant? And what became of it when Solomon’s Temple was destroyed?

    There have been many decoys, if you wish – and many claims. It took our team years to track down the facts. And a recent expedition took it further.

    This priceless artifact has been found – and its location will stagger you! So much so, that the Middle Eastern host government walks on a knife edge. So you won’t see it yet.

    Perhaps that’s enough for you know. But if you would like to dig into this further, here’s where to start: http://www.beforeus.com/aoc.html

    Anyway, until next time, please keep safe.

    Very best wishes,

  • Chapter 3
    “The Beginning”

    I stood outside of the Cost Plus World Market in Redmond, Washington. It had become one of the few places that I could escape during my lunch break. It’s not that a corporate shopping center was much of a reprieve from the corporate culture where I spent my days, but there was a riverside trail leading there that would typically bring me temporary distraction from the mundane mechanics of the office environment. On this day, the short walk did little to quell what had escalated into overwhelming despair.

    My desire to bring an end to my suffering had grown intense, and I faced a constant barrage of suicidal thoughts. My search for other solutions to my woes seemed to all dead end in more hopelessness; into outcomes that I felt I could never accept. An intentional death was not an outcome I could accept either, for I had never been one to give up. I was far too proud and lacked the courage to face the reaper (and unknown repercussions) of death at my own hands.

    I paced back-and-forth with aggravation, frustration, and tears. Thoughts of all sorts tumbled over each other in my mind. I was terrified of what I might do in reaction to the out-of-control emotional rollercoaster. I felt completely done with putting in any more wasted effort toward life. Everything seemed a trap. Everything I had ever been told was a lie. I had been used up and run dry by a society, by corporations & companies, and by people that cared nothing about me as an individual. They would all trade my life for a dollar. There was no escape.

    I pulled a card from my wallet. My manager had given it to me several days before with a brief explanation. “Microsoft has a great set of mental health benefits. My family and I use them from time-to-time and they are totally free to employees. Just call the number on this card if you ever feel the need.” My emotional state must have been so obvious to those around me, even though I thought I masked it well enough. The number on the card was an emergency helpline.

    I despised psychiatrists. I didn’t even like counselors so much. I had seen mental health professionals ruin so many lives with either pharmaceuticals or simply with inauthentic and shortsighted behaviors. Psychologists had betrayed me in my youth with their selfish pride, and I had vowed never to give away such power to any such person ever again. It was difficult to overcome my resistance as I typed the numbers into my phone, but there seemed nowhere else to turn. I had to make an effort to change the direction of my life.

    In hindsight, this was a major turning point for me. It’s not that whoever answered my call or those things that followed would solve my innumerable issues. It seems more important symbolically; that I took a distinct action to choose to move onto a path of healing rather than continue along the path of harming that I had unknowingly lived my entire life. It was one of a multitude of individual steps that would follow as I worked to heal my own brokenness.

    The call itself ended me up in a counselor’s office. It was a place where I could think out loud in what felt to be a safe environment. Soon after I took a short leave of absence from my job and visited my father’s home in Eastern Washington. “A change of scenery might do me some good,” I had been told.

    Indeed being away from my family for a couple of weeks was an important step. It gave me the space to gain some clarity, without my normal routine dictating my every thought, feeling and reaction.

    I was lonely without my family. My worst fear had always been that my marriage would end. I had been married to my high-school sweetheart for over a decade and she was everything to me. I felt I would be or have nothing without her, and I had worked hard to keep her “in my pocket” throughout our marriage.

    During my time away, we spoke on the phone frequently. It was during these conversations that we first considered separating from each other. I knew that she was unhappy as well and I felt selfish for binding her into a life that caused her suffering. The love in my heart offered the choice, despite my fears and selfishness. We agreed that separation may be the best solution; to free each other so that we might both be happy.

    By the following morning, the tune changed. If we loved each other so much to make such a sacrifice for each other’s success, then we certainly loved each other enough to support each other together. No separation should be necessary if we could authentically support each other with such love and devotion. We called it off, electing to make changes in our marriage and lifestyles so that we could remain together.

    By the next month, I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I demanded a test from my normal doctor, based on my sister being positively diagnosed. My blood tests were surprising. My antibody counts were off the charts. My vitamin D level was measured at 3 (50 being considered low-normal). This epiphany explained a lot about the conditions I had been experiencing, from weight loss and depression, to mood swings and abdominal pains.

    The Celiac diagnosis was monumental for me. It set me on a mission to take charge of my health (physical, mental, and spiritual). I fired my traditional western doctor and created a new small and devoted team of supporters and medical professionals around myself.

    I took up photography; specifically macro photography. I would carry a camera with me during my lunchtime walks along the riverside and would pause to capture tiny moments of beauty along the way. There was something about looking through the viewfinder at a small flower. In those little universes and in those moments, there was only beauty present. Despite feeling that the entire world was ugly all around me, it was a heaven I could find hope and joy in. Photography made me feel creative, rather than destructive. It was the first time I began to acknowledge that I had any creativity within me at all.

    One day, along the well-traveled urban path, I observed the numerous people biking, jogging, and hurriedly walking along. Everyone seemed to be rushing somewhere, lacking any true presence, and completely missing the bounty of subtle beauty that surrounded them.

    Squashed slugs littered the ground, as symbolic evidence of the unconsciousness of the travelers. Most were corporate workers like myself, apparently trying to make the most of their lunch hour, while others were just lost in gossip with their walking partners, or entirely focused on their robotic exercise routines.

    “What a shame,” I thought, “that people would hold so little regard for the preciousness of life.” My heart dropped, knowing that I had for so long been equally guilty of the exact lack of presence to the miracles that surrounded me.

    I came upon a single slug that had not yet perished to the mindlessness of humanity’s mundane existence. I laid on the trail with my camera and peered at him through the viewfinder (half expecting that I might now get run over as well). He glistened and glowed in the sunlight, bringing me to a momentary point of awe. As I zoomed in for a shot, he inspected the camera lens and then seemed to begin posing for the perfect shot.

    For a creature that so many disregarded as ugly and unimportant pests, I briefly witnessed the miraculous gift that he was, both in his surprising beauty as well as in the spirit of his personality. That little slug taught me some valuable lessons that day; that I should slow down and pace myself, that I should recognize all life for its sacredness, and that I should remain ever present to the immaculate beauty of this world.

    I strove to begin making changes in my personal and family life, home, work/life balance (or as I now called it “life/work balance”). I vowed to retire within a few years time, knowing deeply that I could not long maintain my unsustainable life serving only corporate greed and mechanical materialism. I had taken the first few steps to create an entirely new life.

    Though I thought I was making efforts to preserve the best parts of the life that I was familiar with, little did I know where my new path would ultimately lead me.

    Chapter 3 “The Beginning” I stood outside of the Cost Plus World Market in Redmond, Washington. It had become one of the few places that I could escape during my lunch break. It’s not that a corporate shopping center was much of a reprieve from the corporate culture where I spent my days, but there was a riverside trail leading there that would typically bring me temporary distraction from the mundane mechanics of the office environment. On this day, the short walk did little to quell what had escalated into overwhelming despair. My desire to bring an end to my suffering had grown intense, and I faced a constant barrage of suicidal thoughts. My search for other solutions to my woes seemed to all dead end in more hopelessness; into outcomes that I felt I could never accept. An intentional death was not an outcome I could accept either, for I had never been one to give up. I was far too proud and lacked the courage to face the reaper (and unknown repercussions) of death at my own hands. I paced back-and-forth with aggravation, frustration, and tears. Thoughts of all sorts tumbled over each other in my mind. I was terrified of what I might do in reaction to the out-of-control emotional rollercoaster.

  • Ten Signs Western Society is a Satanic Cult
    Hidden in plain sight, Illuminati logo on the US one dollar bill
    Trump signals his real loyalty, to Cabalist cult.

    Many Jews, Freemasons, liberals, socialists and feminists have unwittingly been inducted into a satanic cult based on
    the Jewish Cabala, and Communism. Society increasingly serves this ruling cult, the Illuminati.
    A satanic cult inverts healthy and unhealthy, natural and unnatural so, for example heterosexuality is treated as a pathology while homosexuality is natural. Similarly, it inverts beauty and ugliness, truth and lies, justice and injustice, making evil seem good. It controls its members by corrupting and making them sick. Its members are dysfunctional and identify with their condition. The real occult meaning of "revolution," is supplanting God with Lucifer, turning reality upside down.

    The cult controls us by making us sick, physically and/or psychologically. The cult makes its members sick and then sells them a "cure." Healthcare is a $1.7 trillion industry in the US, surpassing even "Defence." One in 10 Americans now takes an antidepressant medication; among women in their 40s and 50s, the figure is one in four.

    1. There is a distinction between the "initiated" and the general population which is kept in the dark. They are not told the cult's true objectives (to exploit and enslave them) but are deceived instead with noble sounding platitudes. Leaders (part of the "initiated") routinely lie to the people as in the case of false flags, assassinations and wars.
    2. The symbols of the cult are everywhere and its monuments (obelisks) dot our cities. Illuminati motifs are also prominent in corporate logos. Illuminati bankers control most corporations.
    ( The cartoon Christ depicted screwing God. Note the Illuminati pyramid and eye in Christ's ass. Blasphemy permitted when Christians are the target.)
    They deny that humans have a divine soul that is connected with a spiritual and moral order. Mention of "God" and a universal design and intelligence are suppressed. "God" is a dirty word. Instead of God, (conscience) we are required to obey the cult leaders and their factotums. Believers in God (or Christ) are persecuted. By denying our Divine soul, they define us as simply animals who can be domesticated or culled. They encourage us to degrade ourselves by indulging our animal nature.They attempt to overrule nature and encourage unnatural and perverse behavior. A prime example is the bizarre occult hatred of gender (masculine and feminine), and their encouragement of gender confusion, homosexuality, transgenderism and androgyny. This is a disingenuous attack on the gender identity of 97% of the population. They teach school children to experiment with sex toys and homosexuality. This is state-sanctioned child sex abuse. Homosexuality is a developmental disorder. Its official promotion is proof society has gone over to the dark side.

  • Big Questions
    Questions unanswered Forever. I believe Deep Thinking can reveal the answers. I believe I have found the answers. My “A Book Like No Other” offers proof.
