Today's e-mail from a former colleague and now mission leader in Honduras:
"... please pray for Honduras.  This little country is now a bright spot -- an example of true democracy and of following its constitution.  However, Obama is siding with Chavez, Ortega, and Castro.  The U.S. has cut off all aid to Honduras and will no longer give non-emergency visas to Hondurans.  We're horribly apenados (chagrined).  The U.S. calls what happened here a "military coup," and it definitely was not.  About 85-90% of the country is in favor of the decision the Supreme Court and the Congress (of Honduras) made to oust President Zelaya for all his illegalities, yet the international community will not recognize the new government and says that Zelaya should be back in power.  It's really sad.  We are so very proud of Honduras for standing firm through all of this."
Note from Paul & M.E.:
We are told that about 50% of the Honduran population are believers.  Just after the ouster of Zelaya, and fearful of the U.S. support of his corrupt regime, large numbers of people (perhaps 100,000) met in the National Stadium in Tegucigalpa, in fasting and prayer, asking the Lord to keep them from communist takeover.  Let's contact our govt. officials to promote democracy in Honduras!

Another dire warning
that Western governments cannot afford to ignore

Preliminary Note

I've been working for some time on The Dragonfly formation, of June 03, because I discovered, amongst other things, that it's linked in a number of remarkable ways to various other crop circles of the current season and my analysis should soon be ready. However, after just a brief examination of the new Wayland's Smithy structure I had no doubt that it must be given priority over my other work. …

Initial observations

Firstly, I realised that it was found on the day that represents the 8'th anniversary of the enormous Milk Hill formation of 2001 i.e. August 12 [the 224th day of the year], and I wondered if its builders had been inviting us to recognise this clear relationship. This possibility was of particular interest to me because I have long been convinced that the cited Milk Hill marvel had been engrained with information pertaining to the 9/11 attacks on the United States [see], which occurred 30 days after August 12, and I was keen to ascertain whether the Wayland's Smithy circle sheds any light on this vexed subject.

Secondly, I knew that, as Stuart Dike pointed out, an explicit numerical link exists between the described day the formation was found - August 12 - and its geometry i.e. a 12-spoked wheel at its centre contains 12 discs and an outer band of standing crop contains 12 4-leafed figures [plus circles], as illustrated in the following diagram - which is based on an original photograph kindly provided by Stuart Dike - where the cited 12 discs are numbered in green and the 12 leaf clusters, in white on black:-

But I was also drawn to the fact that the formation contains two notable pairs of rings - one that forms its outer sheath and a smaller one located inside the main structure - and each of these embodies two concentric circles, comprising closely packed, small blocks of standing crop.

Furthermore, when I counted [from the formation's centre] the quotas of these blocks, in order, I found that the smaller ring's circles have 52 & 56 and the larger, 72 & 76, as shown in the following diagram:-

Note: for clarity, below, the two rings have been isolated from the surrounding crop.

The quotas of small blocks in the formation's two rings [1 & 2]

And I noted that this arrangement is linked to the number 4 in a set of explicit ways:-

1] the number of concentric circles is 4

2] the tallies of blocks in the 1st ring, 52 & 56, differ by 4

3] the tallies of blocks in the 2nd ring, 72 & 76, also differ by 4

4] the total tally of blocks, 256 [= 52+56+72+76], can be expressed as 4x4x4x4 or 44

In other words, it appeared that the identified sequences of blocks in the two rings had been carefully selected.

For the foregoing reasons, then, I decided that the formation should be subjected to a more detailed examination with urgency. …

My analysis and conclusions

Three signatures of authenticity

[A] Knowing that the numbers 52 & 56 and 72 & 76 are part of the arithmetic series 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76, where the common difference is 4, I was curious as to why our attention had been drawn to just those 4 entries, and I wondered if we were being invited to express the relationship that exists between them in a more novel way. …

If the first two numbers, 52 & 56, are represented as two columns of blocks then the final two, 72 & 76, could be defined by placing two columns, identical to the first, on a plinth that's 20 blocks high, thus [where the blocks are shown only symbolically]:-

And when I'd produced this elementary figure I soon realised that it's pointing us to a profound relationship. …

If the plinth's 20 blocks are labelled sequentially - starting at 1 - these have a sum of 210 [= 1+...+20] and when this is added to 5256 & 7276, which can be inferred from the juxtaposition of the formation's quotas of blocks - 52, 56 & 72, 76 - we obtain:-


the geometric mean diameter, in kilometres, of the WGS 84 ellipsoid

In other words, the ostensibly curious sequences of blocks in the formation's 2 rings … 52, 56 & 72, 76 … embody a definitive relationship with an accurate earth model that is widely employed today: the ellipsoid used for the popular WGS 84 map datum. I'd add that the cited 2 rings also exhibit a subtle link to the factor 20, which forms a key part of the relationship: the objects embody the concepts of 2 and ring [= 0].

Readers of earlier articles of mine may recall that I consider such impressive allusions to the WGS 84 ellipsoid, within a formation, to be a pivotal mark of authenticity.

[B] Having accepted that the space between the formation's 2 rings is linked to a 20, in the indicated way, it was soon clear that that area has attributes that enable us to produce another simple and elegant manifestation of the cited geodetic number. …

The region between the rings is occupied by 12 4-leafed figures of flattened crop and each of these embraces 5 circles [4 small & 1 larger] that have areas of standing crop at their centres, as shown in the typical arrangement below, which is an adaptation of a photograph kindly provided by Chris Bird:-

Clearly, then, the cited area between the rings contains a total of 60 [= 12x5] isolated zones of standing crop [just as the rings themselves have 256 blocks of standing crop] - and 60 has a revealing relationship with the 20 that's also associated with the region. If we express the latter number as 10+10 [akin to sharing it between the two rings] we can now produce the 'simple and elegant manifestation of the cited geodetic number':-

Multiplying 60p [i.e. 'the 60th prime' = 277]* by 10p+10p [= 23+23] yields:-


the geometric mean diameter, in kilometres, of the WGS 84 ellipsoid

This elementary computation was also described in an earlier article of mine that was published on this site [ref. Eastfield (4) of 25-08-08] and I would remind readers that it enables us to make sense of an ostensibly bizarre Biblical passage that has baffled mankind for rather a long time: the creation myth of the Book of Genesis.

And at this point I noted that the 2 rings' quota of blocks, 256 [= 52+56+72+76], also exhibits a simple relationship to the 2 numbers that formed the basis of the described calculation: 60 & 20 [which had to be expressed as 10+10]. …

The product of the digits 2, 5 & 6 is … 60 … and when those digits are expressed as the corresponding primes - 2p, 5p & 6p - their sum is … 20 [= 2+7+11].

[C] I was now curious as to whether the hidden but all important number 20 is linked in any other meaningful way to the cited allotment of blocks in the formation's 2 rings - 256 [= 52+56+72+76] - and I quickly obtained an unambiguous answer. …

Having noted that the expression 256 + 20p [= 67] yields … 323 … I discovered that the latter number relates in a stunning way to the arithmetic series I described earlier, in which 52 & 56 and 72 & 76 are, respectively, the first and last two entries:-

52p+56p + 60p+64p+68p + 72p+76p323p i.e.

233+257 + 277+307+331 + 353+379 = 2137

I'd established, then, that the number 20 can be inferred from a relationship that exists between the 7 entries of the arithmetic series - 52, 56, 60, 64, 68, 72, 76 - and the four members of this sequence that are displayed in the formation's rings - 52, 56, 72, 76 - as shown below:-

52p+56p+60p+64p+68p+72p+76p = 323p … and … 323 - [52+56+72+76] = 20p

And given the key role of the number 20 in the two described ways of generating the geodetic number 12742, from the crop circle's unique structure, it was evident that the above clear relationships constitute another signature of the formation's authenticity.

Allusions to terrestrial time

Being thus convinced that the Wayland's Smithy edifice I was now examining was the work of the hyper intelligent beings whose thought provoking constructions I'd borne witness to elsewhere I was determined to find what else they were trying to tell us! …

As the sequences of blocks in each ring are placed in close proximity to one another it occurred to me that the crop circle builders may also have been inviting us to consider relationships that exist between the two sums - 108 [= 52+56] & 148 [= 72+76] - and this hypothesis immediately produced an intriguing result. …

The expression 108p+148p yielded 1440 [= 587+853], the quota of minutes in a day. And this was of particular interest because I knew that the area enclosed by the rings highlights 60, the quota of minutes in an hour and, seconds in a minute.

This numerical relationship between the 2 rings and the area they enclose also meant that the number of hours in a day is being inferred i.e.:-

1440/60 = 24

Furthermore, these apparent allusions to the numerical parameters that are employed in our terrestrial definition of time became all the more pertinent when I realised that the 12-spoked wheel-like structure, which occupies the formation's central area, could represent the face of an artefact we use to display the time within any 24 hour period: a clock [devoid of hands]. Not only is the wheel divided into the traditional 12 sectors but it is endowed with 12 circles of standing crop - positioned perfectly - upon which the numbers 1 to 12 could be placed [as I did on my first diagram of this document].

The above information is summarised below:-


Links to time

60 = the number of minutes in an hour and, seconds in a minute

108p+148p = 1440, the number of minutes in a day

1440/60 = 24, the number of hours in a day 

I was now presented with an interesting possibility: were the builders of the formation drawing our attention to these relationships and to their novel clock face so that we'd also be able to identify, within their creation, a specific time they were highlighting?

Before I seriously addressed this question, however, I wanted to establish if the crop circle also provides us with the means of identifying the day to which the cited time presumably relates. …

Two days of the year come into focus

Having identified a meaningful link between the individual block endowments of the formation's 2 rings and the area enclosed by them i.e. [108p+148p]/60 = 24, a single day's allotment of hours, I was curious as to whether a similar relationship also exists between those block endowments and the 12 areas of standing crop on the clock face [which the inner ring encompasses]. … And with little effort I obtained an answer I'd been expecting to find somewhere within the field structure. …

I discovered that the summation 108p+148p [= 1440] exceeds 12p [= 31] by:-

224p [= 1409], where 224 was the day the crop circle was found.

In other words, I'd uncovered a simple and elegant allusion to the day of the year the formation was first identified [expressed as a prime (as often occurs in formations)].

I considered this result to be of special interest because it's consistent with the other relationships I described, involving the individual block endowments of the 2 rings [108 & 148]: in each of those 2 cases I'd identified a defined characteristic of one day i.e. 1440 is its allotment of minutes and 24, its allotment of hours, and I'd now found an apparent reference to one day of the year, which happens to be what we believe was the edifice's day of birth [but was also the 8th anniversary of the Milk Hill giant].

These three complementary relationships are juxtaposed below:-

The three relationships

108p+148p = 1440, the number of minutes in one day

[108p+148p]/60 = 24, the number of hours in one day

[108p+148p] - 12p = 224, the one day the formation was found

At this juncture I discovered that the formation's 2 rings also embody a more curious relationship.…

I knew that the block quota in the outer ring, 148, is 40 greater than that in the inner, 108, and I suddenly realised that the 2 rings are also linked to this number in another way that involves their endowments of blocks i.e. the 4 concentric circles within the rings consist of 52 & 56 and 72 & 76 sequences of blocks and these numbers' 8 digits add up to: 40 [= 5+2+5+6 + 7+2+7+6].

Furthermore, just as I'd recognised previously that the number 20 is closely associated with the concept of 2 rings [because our glyph for zero, 0, can be classified as a ring] so it was now clear that the 40 I'd identified is likewise closely related to the concept of the rings' 4 concentric circles i.e. a zero can also be represented by a circle.

But having accepted that the number 40 is linked to the formation's rings in the cited ways, I soon uncovered a relationship that sent shivers down my spine. …

I found that the summation 108p+148p [= 1440] plus 40p [= 167] yields:-

254p [= 1607], and this year's 254th day will be … the 11th of September, the 8th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks.

I was therefore confronted with the possibility that, as anticipated when I first learned of the formation, its builders were drawing our attention to that terrible date!

I now wanted to establish whether the formation's apparent allusions to both the day of its discovery, August 12, and September 11 can be shown to be related to events of 8 years ago - when Milk Hill's monster appeared and the US outrages occurred.

The impending 9/11 - and a specified time

I knew that 40, one of the key elements of the relationship that had yielded the above 254th prime, was closely associated with the number 8, which represents the ranks of the 2 cited anniversaries i.e. it equals the sum of the 8 digits of 52 & 56 and 72 & 76. However, I concluded that if the clever crop circle builders had really wanted to draw our attention to this factor 8, in the described context, they would have had to ensure that it has a central role not just in one such computation but in the basic form of the whole edifice. And when I looked for it I realised not only that it's staring us all in the face but also that our identification of it even answers another taxing question. …

The parts of the formation I've been interested in during my examination of it are the small zones of standing crop that are distributed throughout it; and the manifold areas, which are of rectangular or circular form, straddle the perimeters of concentric circles that could be drawn. And if we count these circles we find that there are 8 of them, as depicted in the Fig. below [where the tallies of the respective shapes are also shown]:-

The 8 concentric circles of standing-crop zones

1st = 76; 2nd = 72; 3rd = 24; 4th = 12; 5th = 24; 6th = 56; 7th = 52; 8th = 12

My recognition that the very areas of the formation that have provided me with all my information - the standing-crop zones - are emblazoned with the number 8 in this way convinced me that the structure's builders had indeed wanted to draw our attention to the fact that their creation is being tied to the events, of 8 years ago, that I described: the day that the giant Milk Hill formation appeared and the day of the 9/11 attacks.

But before I outline persuasive geographical evidence that supports this hypothesis we should take cognizance of the fact that the 8th circle [counting from the exterior] of the defined standing-crop zones is lodged within the formation's clock face. …

This relationship links the clock - which we know is devoid of hands - firmly to the number 8, and this raises the possibility that 8 o'clock is the time we were seeking. But having formulated this theory I knew I'd be obliged to find plausible answers to two fundamental questions it presents us with. …

1   Is it the morning or the evening that's being described?

2   Does the time pertain to the impending 9/11, which the formation is highlighting? 

Fortunately, I soon realised that the crop circle's ingenious architects ensured that this ostensible conundrum can be resolved with extraordinary subtlety and simplicity. …

One of the formation's most prominent features, its 12 4-leafed clusters, has played no part in my detailed analysis because it is comprised, uniquely, of only flattened crop. But knowing that these 48 leaves, in common with all the zones of standing crop, are disposed in a circular arrangement, O, it was evident that they could serve as a covert representation of the number 480, and this proved to be most revealing. …

The leaf clusters are encapsulated within a region that's closely associated with a 60 i.e. it contains that number of small areas of standing crop. But 60 happens to be the quota of minutes in 1 hour - and if the cited 480, inferred from the same part of the formation, is considered in this specific context it can be seen to represent … 8 hours.

What we are being told, then, in this almost child-like manner, is that the 8 o'clock we were speculating about is to be in the morning!

I would add that a notable confirmation of this deduction emerged when I considered the fact that, at the cited time, the clock's 2 missing hands should be on the 8 & 12. … Not only do these numbers add up to 20, the factor I'd earlier found to be hidden, but the sum of the 8th and 12th primes is - 48 [= 17+31] - which equals the quota of leaves that had yielded the crucially important definition of 8 hours.

Knowing that, within the formation, the described time is represented as 480 minutes I was curious as to whether this 480 is linked in a meaningful way to the 316 areas of standing crop that encompass the 12 on the clock face [i.e. 316 = 148+60+108], and I quickly received an unambiguous link to 9/11 [which we know falls on the 254th day]. I found that 316p [= 2087] exceeds 480 by … 254p [= 1607].

In other words, I'd uncovered a definitive link between 8.00 am and September 11.

I then considered the fact that the formation's 2 rings fit within a circle that possesses by definition 360 degrees. And when I added 360 to 1440, which the rings are also closely linked to, yielding 1800, I found that 480p [= 3407] exceeds this by … 254p.

A pivotal geographical perspective

We know that my computation of the first of the 2 above described manifestations of 254p involved the 316 areas of standing crop that encompass the 12 on the clock face - but I didn't stress that these 316 areas are actually disposed on 7 concentric circles [although this would have been easy to deduce] i.e. 316 = 76+72+24+12+24+56+52. This key role of the number 7 interested me because, as explained earlier, I knew that the block quotas of the 2 rings' concentric circles belong to a 7-entry arithmetic series - and this sequence is an integral part of the formation's overall numerical statement.

Furthermore, I couldn't fail to notice that when 316 is added to 7 we obtain … 323 … the very number that I'd found closely tied to the described 7-entry arithmetic series i.e. 52p+56p+60p+64p+68p+72p+76p = 323p … and … 323 - [52+56+72+76] = 20p.

It seemed possible, then, that the cited link between the 7 concentric circles that are disposed around the clock face, and the single 1 it encapsulates, also embodies other relevant information. I therefore did a symbolic sketch of the 7 circles and placed it alongside the clock face, with the 1 circle within it, and focussed on the figure:-

Recalling the key roles I'd identified of the number 480, which had been inferred from the unique ring of 4-leafed clusters of flattened crop, I now noticed that this exceeds 71, which can be inferred from the above arrangement, by a prime that was intimately associated with the Milk Hill structure of 2001 … 409 … which was the quota of circles in the main edifice. However, I had no idea, at first, as to whether this relationship was merely the outcome of random chance.

But knowing that the 7 and 1 in the figure are so closely tied to the concept of circle i.e. they represent numbers of circles of standing crop, I wondered if 710, which can be inferred from this relationship [again recognising that a circle can represent a 0], has a role to play, and I soon found another link to the cited Milk Hill formation. …

I discovered that 323p [= 2137], described above, exceeds 710 by 226p [= 1427] and I knew that an angle of 226 hundredths of a degree [or 2.26°] differs from the value of the meridian that passed through the formation's centre … 1.851° W … by .409° [see], 409 being the structure's allotment of circles.

Indeed, I was also aware that the cited .409 could actually be read directly from the field that accommodated the formation: when viewed along a meridian from the north the main edifice could be seen to be accompanied by a minuscule circle on its left and by juxtaposing this point-like structure with the 409 we could infer .409.

It now seemed possible, then, that the architects of this Wayland's Smithy formation had been inviting us to find the above subtle allusions to the 2001 Milk Hill structure, one of which appeared to include data relating to the latter's geographical longitude. This hypothesis remained a tentative one, however, until I tried to determine if the above cited 226, which embodied the cited link to Milk Hill's meridian, also relates in a meaningful way to 12, the one number that's displayed explicitly on the formation, and is, in particular, the quota of discs of standing crop on the clock's face. …

Having noted that the expression 226 + 12p [= 31] yields 257, I discovered that when 257 thousandths of a degree is taken from the cited Milk Hill meridian, 1.851° W, we obtain … 1.594° W … which appears to pass through the Wayland's Smithy structure [unfortunately its accurate coordinates were not measured, as far as I am aware].

And any thoughts that this outcome was merely a random event were dismissed when I found that the value of the expression 226 - 12p is … 195. I discovered that when 195 thousandths of a degree is added to the line of latitude that passed through the centre of the Milk Hill structure [see], 51.376° N, we obtain … 51.571° N … which also appears to intersect the Wayland's Smithy circle.

These extraordinary relationships are displayed on the diagram below:-

And the position of the cited point in the field that the Wayland's Smithy formation appeared in, 51.571° N 1.594° W, is shown on the Google Earth map below, followed by an aerial picture [which is at a low angle] kindly provided by John Montgomery:-

The significance of this curious geographical relationship between 2 formations that appeared exactly 8 years apart can be understood, I believe, when we consider the other links I've described between the cited Wayland's Smithy and Milk Hill edifices and the 8th anniversary of the date September 11. In my simply constructed Milk Hill website I've tried to demonstrate that that massive crop circle had been designed to embody precisely defined data about the US attacks that occurred just 30 days later. On that occasion, however, nothing was done about this information because nobody was aware that it existed. Indeed few people, including those in the dedicated crop circle fraternity, even had an inkling that formations embody statements of that kind.

But today I have rushed this abbreviated article to the Crop Circle Connector because it appears to me that we are again being given a dire warning, one that's been picked up before the event and not after it. As explained above I believe that the builders of the Wayland's Smithy formation had made efforts to tell us that more malevolence has been planned for September 11, at 8.00 am, to compound the carnage of 8 years ago.

Another indication that my analysis is correct can be detected, I believe, when we take cognizance of the fact that the number that defines [when combined with 12p] the precise angular displacements between the Milk Hill & Wayland's Smithy points i.e. 226, differs from 480, which we found highlighted in the latter formation, by the now familiar … 254. Furthermore, we know that the number 480 was inferred from a circle of 4-leafed clusters of flattened crop within the structure and the above aerial picture and Google map show trees to the North, South, East and West of the circle.

It's also the case that the difference between the numbers that represent the days of the year corresponding to August 12 and September 11 i.e. 224 & 254, is, when both are expressed as the corresponding primes198 [= 1607 - 1409]. And when we add this to 254 we obtain a factor that can be expressed as … 226+226 … which happens to be the total angular displacement [expressed in °/1000] between the Milk Hill and Wayland's Smithy points [i.e. measured along a meridian and line of latitude pair].

·        As stressed in previous articles, 1 must be counted as the first prime number. A list of the first 700 primes [thus defined] can be found on

Death To Videodrome: Long Live The New Frequency

Thanks to David for sending this.  Dee

Dear Friends,

Love and Light.


Death To Videodrome: Long Live The New Frequency

Much of the conversation that one may ordinarily witness is anchored in drab recitals of that which was yesterday, with occasional sorties into that which may be tomorrow. All too often, there is precious little of what is now. Reality is therefore very much a secondary reflection in this artificial projection of the unreal realms of past and future. Even amongst so called professional and educated types, we find a distinct poverty of authentic personal expression, regardless of whether the parties in question are intimately known to each other or perfect strangers. Not least, this is evident in the quietly conservative middle classes who tend to rely even more heavily on stale clichés and predictable regurgitation of approved memes, despite their soul-crushing obviousness.

In view of the above, it is undoubtedly an act of deep insurgency to choose to move away from the consensus trance that guides most humans from cradle to grave. Leading one's own experience of consciousnesses intuitively onto the sacred path of gnosis also brings a subtle sense that this is not an extraordinary gravitation at all, but a perfectly natural one. Old patterns and old wiring begin to dissolve and the damaging constructs implemented through parenting, schooling and society (however well or ill intended), cease to exert the potent authority they once did. Vulgar attempts by agents of disinformation to subvert the organic expansion of consciousness are effortlessly identified and neutralized before their proximity poses any threat. Every day becomes a novel and magikal exercise in the on-going discipline of inspired deconstruction of the old ways, and profound, integral movements into new evolving trajectories.

Yet many fine humans, ostensibly intelligent and coherent beings, will consistently regress into old behaviour patterns and conformist mentalities in the most disappointing manner. One step forward, two steps back. Unlearning decades of conditioned neuron firing is clearly a process that demands wholehearted commitment over extended periods of time, something that many just don't have the stomach for.

Reckless Surfing

Sodom, according to the King James Version of The Bible, was one of the Cities Of The Plain (aka The Pentapolis region), sitting alongside Gomorrah, Admah, Zeboim and Bela (aka Zoar). To cut a long story short, the levels of human depravity were so bad in these places, that "the Lord out of heaven" destroyed them with a hail of brimstone and fire (Genesis 19:24-25). A guy called Lot was tipped off and escaped with his family, though whilst on the road out of Sodom, his wife looked back longingly at the burning city of Sodom (against divine instruction) and was turned into a pillar of salt. Christian and Islamic thinking now associates these places, particularly Sodom, with unrepentant moral transgression.

In light of this, you will understand why last week I temporarily laboured under the delusion that I had been teleported to the venal (or should that be venereal) city of Sodom. I was reclining on the sofa with a drink, some ambient music and a book. When I finished the final chapter of the book, I recklessly decided to see if there was anything worthwhile on the TV. Usually my laptop would provide such data at a glance, but it too was taking a well earned break. So I risked a bit of impromptu channel surfing.

The dire panoply of sludge that befell me went something like this... Win ten grand. Talk longer for less. Lip gloss. Heaving cleavage. Mutants. Sexual abuse. Screaming. Guns fired into heads point blank. Cruelty, revulsion. Women horny at home. Young, sensual or mature. Cheap lingerie. Online poker. Free credit. High stakes. Deal of the day. Digital switchover. Car insurance. Life cover. Laser eye treatment. Sweating bodies in a club. Surveillance cameras. Reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. War, helicopters, checkpoints. Conflict, car bombs, dead soldiers brought home. Pawning jewellery. Cash lump sum. Consolidate debts. Cheap beer. Text and flirt. Give blood. Save the children. Join the army. TURN OFF THE TV.

These are not obscure satellite channels. This is not Videodrome. These are 'on the house' channels that everyone with a modern TV in the UK gets. A 5 year old or a 95 year old will see this stuff if they switch on the TV late enough. Which many people do. Watching television without a plan is a risky business. The roulette wheel spins, you hit the remote and you either get a nature program or blood spattered torture. Yet people tolerate it. A common and accurate phrase I hear grumbled from many middle-aged viewers is, "there's nothing on". Though this does not prevent them from prospecting again later, and worse, tolerating something they are not enjoying - because watching something is better than watching nothing. To add insult to injury, in the UK at least, each household is obligated to pay an annual fee of £142 to obtain a licence to watch this shit. Quite extraordinary.

To understand what's really going on, we need to zoom out. Draw back and detach from the freakshow, perceive it from within a broader contextual framework. It is only from this vantage point that we can detect the telltale profile - the evidential trail - of the progressive polarization of consciousness. This organic cyclical process of the conscious becoming more conscious and the unconscious become more unconscious is now a felt experience in many peoples daily lives. It represents a choice. In this very moment, a galactic opportunity is presented to Earth and its human guests. The choice is a radical one. Evolve or devolve. The mainstream media is a living illustration of what devolving human consciousness looks like. Immersion in tradition, sedation, distraction or cocooning is no longer viable. They are all wrong answers.

To Polarize Or Not To Polarize

Ontologically speaking, we may postulate that as consciousness is but one creative element within an undivided energetic whole (an aspect of the holomovement), any polarization is essentially an abstract human construct, not an actual thing in itself. Polarization is a human translation of the interaction between two parts of a single system. In this sense, the perception of polarization can be likened to the observance of wind. Wind occurs where there are differences in density between two air masses (defined by temperature and water vapour content). Where different densities exist between two adjacent air masses, the air flows from regions of higher to lower pressure. This gush of air movement is what we experience as wind.

I propose that the field of consciousness (the C-field, for short) flows around and through all things. It does not emanate from the brain - it is not an epiphenomenal accident arising from the gooey grey organ inside our skull. Consciousness is an intelligent, self-organizing field of extraordinary multidimensional information. It is a continually moving, emerging and evolving system. What we do as humans, is to conduct this field into our local physical bio-vehicle (the body) and work with it. The brain serves as a transceiver, able to transmit and receive data, to and from the field. Returning to our wind analogy, let us consider how air flows from areas of high pressure to areas of low pressure. Now, overlay this thinking with the idea that a human mind may offer high resistance or low resistance to the dynamic flow of consciousness. High resistance occurs when the mind is contracted, heavy and hardwired. Low resistance occurs when the mind is expansive, light and dynamic. Mind can thus be seen as an interface between the brain (the processor) and the C-field (a form of organic galactic internet). At the same time, hold the notion that everything is energy. What we are actually talking about here is how overlapping energy systems produce either harmony or dissonance; creation or dissolution.

With these powerful concepts at hand, we can say that the polarization of consciousness is better described as the widening gap between rigid high resistance clinging to the old, and fluid low resistance evolution toward the new. It is important to recognize that conscious, luminous individuals naturally modulate their own appropriate levels of resistance, depending on the circumstances. It's not good to be at one extreme or the other all the time.

Consciousness is of the universe. It is the stuff of the universe itself. What else could it be? If such energy is being pumped out and energized by the universe, from engines of galactic creation (what the Mayans called Hunab Ku, galactic centre), I see that every few thousand years a series of exceptionally potent emanations are beamed throughout the galaxies and at particular systems where life is slowly evolving. These emanations could be considered as upgrades.

In astrophysics, 'cosmic rays' are defined as particles that reach the Earth from anywhere beyond its own atmosphere. Galactic cosmic rays (GCRs) come from further afield, from outside the solar system and even outside the galaxy itself. Whilst the elemental makeup of GCRs is believed to be similar to the composition of the Earth and our local solar system, analysis of the origin seed material (what they were composed of at the point of origin) indicates that they are not made up of either interstellar gas or shards of giant stars that went supernova. Simply stated, where they come from is not known within the mainstream scientific community. Though some GCRs are theorized to have originated in highly energetic processes such as supernovae shockwaves, many have energies so high that no known physical process could've created them.

The Grand Cycle

There are correlations here with the 26,000 galactic alignment cycle where the December solstice sun aligns with the Galactic equator. This movement occurs as a result of the precession of the equinoxes, stimulated by the earth rotating very slowly on its axis and shifting the position of the equinoxes (solar mid points) and solstices (solar extremes of light/dark). From this, we can further trace the Mayan and Hopi mythological narratives that indicate we are at the end of the fourth age. The fourth iteration of consciousness is complete. At the end of this epoch, as the veil is lifted and everything is up for grabs, the next level of galactic upgrades becomes available for download.

As proposed in Science, The New York Times and New Scientist in November 2007, "monster black holes may power highest-energy cosmic rays." This is compelling stuff. When a high energy ray enters into the Earth's upper atmosphere, it creates an avalanche of secondary particles that branches outwards as it cascades down. The particle shower can have a "footprint" as large as 40 square kilometres when it hits the ground. Do they contain information? Information is energy after all. Black holes have long been suspected in the alternative community as natural portals to other galaxies. Either way, right now, high energy cosmic particles are quietly bombarding various parts of the planet, ready for dynamic interpretation. If they are encoded with data, which is an increasing possibility, I suggest that minds of rigid high resistance will not be able to receive them at all.

Resonance is key here. The technique of 'entrainment' posits that similarly resonating systems tend to synchronize. For example, it is known that the human brain resonates at different frequencies in different states. By introducing frequencies at different rates, this will cause the brainwaves to entrain and begin to resonate at that frequency. The result is a change in mind state, induced by the predominant incoming frequencies. For example, watching television can cause the viewer to slip from the accustomed Beta state (12-26Hz), through a passive Alpha mind state (8-12 Hz) and into the highly programmable Theta state (4-8 Hz). In Theta, assimilation of incoming data on the screen is deeply seeded into the psyche. What you watch is permanently burned in. This is frequency control. Or, if you prefer, mind control.

A coordinated bombardment of fluoride, aluminium, barium, cellphone and wi-fi signals, television, aspartame, MSG, mood stabilizing drugs, fear, depression and stress - all combine most effectively to block specific frequencies of incoming data. The human animal is isolated from the C-field and cut off from the principles of divine creative collaboration. No upgrades will be possible or even desired by folk who have a steady daily diet of such government approved toxins. Sounds conspiratorial? It is. The natural human state is one of being able to smoothly modulate high frequency, low resistance (suppleness) and conscious presence. What the old hierarchy seeks to implement in its subjects is the exact opposite: low frequency, high resistance (rigidity), unconscious absence. There is no coincidence, no accident and no gross incompetence here. This is an intentional and meticulous strategy to severely corrupt the efficacy of the next upgrade in consciousness.

Once more, we must move away from consuming mainstream media, only put happy natural things into (or onto) our body, unplug technology we are not using, meditate, laugh, love, discover. Learn about plants... for eating, for healing, for gnosis. It is also of great benefit to seek some artistic expression for our innate creative impulse. To paint, draw, write, play, sing, dance, converse, dream, sculpt... something. Consume less. Create more. It is in these moments of right brain activity that the ego learns to keep its mouth shut and just watch. Very handy for firm progress on the path.

The presence of being required to successfully deepen one's experience of consciousness is also influenced by the role of the ego. If an over promoted ego is secretly running the individual human system, there is little or no conscious evolution. Only by being authentically present with ourselves, can we hope to be authentically present with anyone else. It is by abiding with great clarity and stillness in the present moment that real communication can take place. This is the same whether we are talking to a friend, or whether we are stood on a beautiful hillside experiencing conscious absorption of incoming galactic data. Natural energetic transformation.

Be discerning and sovereign. Be open and fluid. Become familiar with the innate psychic agility that extends throughout every fibre of the physical body. By gently holding one's own unique frequency of creative integral presence - we resonate, and thus communicate, with every living thing that shares our harmonic. The more consciousness we can conduct, the deeper our creative frequencies can permeate everything we do and are. In this endeavour, we not only heal ourselves, but we help all conscious entities, including the stunningly elegant energy system of the planet itself, to transcend the controls of the old hierarchy. This is the alchemy of being human.

Who is funding the Afghan Taliban? You don't want to know

The article by Jean MacKenzie originally appeared inGlobalPost. This is part of a special series by GlobalPost called Life, Death and The Taliban. Click here for a related article Funding the Pakistani Taliban.

KABUL — It is the open secret no one wants to talk about, the unwelcome truth that most prefer to hide. In Afghanistan, one of the richest sources of Taliban funding is the foreign assistance coming into the country.

Virtually every major project includes a healthy cut for the insurgents. Call it protection money, call it extortion, or, as the Taliban themselves prefer to term it, "spoils of war," the fact remains that international donors, primarily the United States, are to a large extent financing their own enemy.

"Everyone knows this is going on," said one U.S. Embassy official, speaking privately.

It is almost impossible to determine how much the insurgents are spending, making it difficult to pinpoint the sources of the funds.

Mullah Abdul Salaam Zaeef, former Taliban minister to Pakistan, was perhaps more than a bit disingenuous when he told GlobalPost that the militants were operating mostly on air.

"The Taliban does not have many expenses," he said, smiling slightly. "They are barefoot and hungry, with no roof over their heads and a stone for their pillow." As for weapons, he just shrugged. "Afghanistan is full of guns," he said. "We have enough guns for years."

The reality is quite different, of course. The militants recruit local fighters by paying for their services. They move about in their traditional 4×4s, they have to feed their troops, pay for transportation and medical treatment for the wounded, and, of course, they have to buy rockets, grenades and their beloved Kalashnikovs.

Up until quite recently, most experts thought that drug money accounted for the bulk of Taliban funding. But even here opinion was divided on actual amounts. Some reports gauged the total annual income at about $100 million, while others placed the figure as high as $300 million — still a small fraction of the $4 billion poppy industry.

Now administration officials have launched a search for Taliban sponsors. Richard Holbrooke, U.S. special envoy for Afghanistan and Pakistan, told a press conference in Islamabad last month that drugs accounted for less of a share of Taliban coffers than was previously thought.

"In the past there was a kind of feeling that the money all came from drugs in Afghanistan," said Holbrooke, according to media reports. "That is simply not true."

The new feeling is that less than half of the Taliban's war chest comes from poppy, with a variety of sources, including private contributions from Persian Gulf states, accounting for much of the rest. Holbrooke told reporters that he would add a member of the Treasury Department to his staff to pursue the question of Taliban funding.

But perhaps U.S. officials need look no further than their own backyard.

Anecdotal evidence is mounting that the Taliban are taking a hefty portion of assistance money coming into Afghanistan from the outside.

This goes beyond mere protection money or extortion of "taxes" at the local level — very high-level negotiations take place between the Taliban and major contractors, according to sources close to the process.

A shadowy office in Kabul houses the Taliban contracts officer, who examines proposals and negotiates with organizational hierarchies for a percentage. He will not speak to, or even meet with, a journalist, but sources who have spoken with him and who have seen documents say that the process is quite professional.

The manager of an Afghan firm with lucrative construction contracts with the U.S. government builds in a minimum of 20 percent for the Taliban in his cost estimates. The manager, who will not speak openly, has told friends privately that he makes in the neighborhood of $1 million per month. Out of this, $200,000 is siphoned off for the insurgents.

If negotiations fall through, the project will come to harm — road workers may be attacked or killed, bridges may be blown up, engineers may be assassinated.

The degree of cooperation and coordination between the Taliban and aid workers is surprising, and would most likely make funders extremely uncomfortable.

One Afghan contractor, speaking privately, told friends of one project he was overseeing in the volatile south. The province cannot be mentioned, nor the particular project.

"I was building a bridge," he said, one evening over drinks. "The local Taliban commander called and said 'don't build a bridge there, we'll have to blow it up.' I asked him to let me finish the bridge, collect the money — then they could blow it up whenever they wanted. We agreed, and I completed my project."

In the south, no contract can be implemented without the Taliban taking a cut, sometimes at various steps along the way.

One contractor in the southern province of Helmand was negotiating with a local supplier for a large shipment of pipes. The pipes had to be brought in from Pakistan, so the supplier tacked on about 30 percent extra for the Taliban, to ensure that the pipes reached Lashkar Gah safely.

Once the pipes were given over to the contractor, he had to negotiate with the Taliban again to get the pipes out to the project site. This was added to the transportation costs.

"We assume that our people are paying off the Taliban," said the foreign contractor in charge of the project.

In Farah province, local officials report that the Taliban are taking up to 40 percent of the money coming in for the National Solidarity Program, one of the country's most successful community reconstruction projects, which has dispensed hundreds of millions of dollars throughout the country over the past six years.

Many Afghans see little wrong in the militants getting their fair share of foreign assistance.

"This is international money," said one young Kabul resident. "They are not taking it from the people, they are taking it from their enemy."

But in areas under Taliban control, the insurgents are extorting funds from the people as well.

In war-ravaged Helmand, where much of the province has been under Taliban control for the past two years, residents grumble about the tariffs.

"It's a disaster," said a 50-year-old resident of Marja district. "We have to give them two kilos of poppy paste per jerib during the harvest; then we have to give them ushr (an Islamic tax, amounting to one-tenth of the harvest) from our wheat. Then they insisted on zakat (an Islamic tithe). Now they have come up with something else: 12,000 Pakistani rupee (approximately $150) per household. And they won't take even one rupee less."

It all adds up, of course. But all things are relative: if the Taliban are able to raise and spend say $1 billion per year — the outside limit of what anyone has been able to predict — that accounts for what the United States is now spending on 10 days of the war to defeat them.


P.O.T.T.- Pay Off The Taliban?

Sounds exactly like business in New York City. So we can't think sending treasury will help, we tried that here and they'd probably just give them another 4 trillion from the US Federal Reserve.

That would be a Talibonus…

I would not worry too much about it, when Wall Street finds out the Taliban is getting a 20% cut off US government spending, they'll find a way to trade it, or get a Bonus off the percentage of government losses.

Funny how Madoff made off with 65 Billion through Wall Street Banks with accounts at JP Morgan CHASE and we think the US Treasury is going to be able to track Taliban Funding on the back of goat carts?

Look on the bright side, at least we're inducing someone's economy with a government spending program, too bad it's not our own.

Time to take care of our own.

Thanks for the investigative journalism and courage to publish, what we Pakistani's already know.

Just put yourself in our shoes and then you will realize why we hate Taliban and why we dislike the two-edged strategy of US.

It will be really great, if you can highlight the 23 indian councilates working inside Afghanistan, along the Pakistani border.

I have brothers and sisters killed in Irag and Afganistan wars, and I read this article with great sadness for the lives of my Samoan soldiers who died to save lives of these people who makes funs of our services. I rather sees my soldier brothers come home and give their lives to protect those who truly need freedom, and leave Afgans and Iragis save themselves from their internal tribal wars and kill themselves.

I like to see the International soldiers leave these war zones and let them continue fighting as their way of life and live on poppies and drugs. Afgans and Iraq knows these illegal protection money schemes and wants to continue it so the wars be continue to bring in more financial aids at the cost of LIVES to foreign solders.

Afghans never asked for help from America. Reagan and Bush 1 went to Afghanistan to help defeat the Soviet Union. And when that was accomplished, America refused to leave Afghans alone.

American spends $1 Billion every 10 days to fight a war they started and finance on both sides. And yet, schools in the US are under-funded, hospitals are closing, foreclosures are higher than ever, and ordinary people are homeless and suffering. But war continues unabated. There is never money for any social programs for American citizens, however when it comes to war, money is always flowing like water.

Shame to the rulers of America. When American citizens have to risk their lives driving to Mexico to get medical treatment because they have no health insurance, it shows lack of concern for ordinary people. What is the benefit of being an American citizen today? None, except you pay taxes to finance endless wars and people you never met hate you for crimes your government is committing around the world.

This is no new news, is like in Iraq where the US government lost track of 12 billions US dollars that's not all they also lost a huge amount of Ak-47 who were supposed to go to the Iraqi's army and they simple lost them imagine in the hands of whom they ended, is all business for the US gov, and the military industries and the contractors they are the real people who are making money right out of this wars and this article is right and well explained how the Taliban is getting their money, is like in Colombia the US gives out $1,500 mm every year to the government and they say to fight drug trafficking and other kind of business, so you may expect a reduction in drug's amount and less guerrillas and less paramilitaries in Colombia but this is not happening in that country, everything is going in the other way, so this is how the companies or better say the military complex of the US is making a loop with the money congress approve,is a very complex theme to understand, to understand this sad story in our history you may have follow this from the beginning when the Afghanistan war started. I recommend you a book the first book of Richard Clark and then the second one ( When your government failed you)

Fake Doctor, Che fan planted at Town Hall meeting

I was reading the Chron's piece about Sheila Jackson Lee's town hall, when something caught my eye:

One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee's district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.

"I don't know what there is in the bill that creates such panic," she said.

In this video, Mayer claims to be a general practitioner, eliciting applause and even a hug from Queen Sheila:

(See Video - it would not copy into this email - also comments at YouTube:

Hat tip to the Lone Star Times on this story- which is reporting that the person asking the question is not a doctor as she claims- read and decide for yourself: A G... )


I'm not sure why, but something didn't smell right. So my colleagues and I did a little digging, and wouldn't you know it? Roxana Mayer is, like, totally not a doctor.

But she is an Obama campaign volunteer.

Our own David Jennings secured a phone interview, in which Mayer admitted to impersonating a physician, saying — get this — she thought it would help her credibility. (It didn't.)

Now here's where it spins off into a whole new dimension of weird. See the bug-eyed woman seated behind not-doctor Mayer?

Look familiar?

Yes, that little ray of sunshine, who accompanied Mayer to the meeting, is none other than Maria Isabel, the unhinged moonbat who ran a Barack Obama campaign office, complete with Che Guevara flag.

Hell, she's even wearing the exact same outfit she wore the last time we mocked her!

A word of advice to budding political operatives: when you need two plants, try to pick people smarter than actual plants.

This isn't brain surgery.

[Hat-tips: Bryan Thome (video), David Jennings, Kevin Whited]

The ChronBlog has updated their original article without noting that they were negligent in reporting.

The original text:

Some attendees at the meeting spoke in favor of the plan, go so far as to want a system where the government had complete control.

One supporter, Dr. Roxana Mayer, a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee's district, praised the reform plan for overhauling a broken system.

"I don't know what there is in the bill that creates such panic," she said.

Another supporter, Robbie Evans, concurred: "The United States pays more for health care than all the other industrial countries put together."

The revised text:

Mayer identified herself as a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee's district. However, her name does not appear in the database maintained by the Texas Medical Board, which licenses all doctors in Texas.

Another supporter, Robbie Evans, concurred: "The United States pays more for health care than all the other industrial countries put together."

Good grief, the reporters at the ChronBlog have no shame. And Patterico caught them changing the caption on their picture without noting the correction:

    The standard protocol for the Democrats, to brainwash their constituents, has not changed in 75 years. Just lie to them, be very vague with your answers while never actually answering any questions and have your bussed in Communists lie also.

    The irony is, that lady claiming to be a Doctor is about the same caliber of Medical Care the government will provide the people in a Socialized Health Care System.

    Does anyone else get the weird feeling that no matter WHAT the issue, the Left always land on the wrong foot?

    And yet, somehow it doesn't seem to matter - they just admire the cleverness of the attempt.

  3. El Gordo on August 13th, 2009 at 5:50 am

    Isn't it interesting that the Democrats always seem to be ahead of the power curve in predicting events? Speaker Pelosi sees Nazi's and swastikas, and viola, two days later, swastikas, Hitler photos, and Nazi uniforms start to appear. I'll have to admit though that I'm shocked, shocked I tell you, to find that Queen Shelia, that icon of mental health, integrity, intellect, and genuine concern for our nation would stoop to such tactics - it must be something put together without her knowledge by staff, or more likely, set up to embarrass her by the evil Republicans. Nothing else makes any sense.

    There's some folks who have begun calling Democrat Town Hall meetings "greenhouses."

    Because there"s so many plants in them.

    In addition to the fake doctor at Queejn Sheila's meeting, and the 12 year old we found out about yesterday at Obama's, it looks like there's was another:

    I live in new Hampshire and was particularily interested in seeing how well Obama's staged "town hall" meeting held in Portsmouth, NH, resonated with "Granite Staters". The wife and I were watching the local news last night and of course, the lead story was the "town hall" meeting. The video clip included a woman who was identified by name and her home town. She had been invited to stand at the podium and provide a short statement as to why she supports Obamacare.

    The lady stated, "I have hepatitis-C and I am UNABLE to get healthcare". Well…that was a lie. And how do I know this? My wife, who is a nurse practitioner, happens to be her primary health care provider!! The woman is enrolled in a health care plan with Blue Cross/Blue Shield!

    Of course, it would be a HIPPA violation to release this information to the press, so she…and the Obama administration…will get away with this bold faced LIE!!!!!

    Amazing, and they wonder why the people have no trust in them! I hope
    that Matt Bramanti sends his story to Fox or another news outlet so it will
    get out. This whole thing is turning out like a bad conspiracy novel, only it
    is true. What is really sad is the fact that, as far as I know, we have no legal recourse against them when they lie cheat and steal. Perhaps this is
    something we may want to look into.

  7. Adee on August 13th, 2009 at 8:27 am

    Agree with #6 Potcakedog that this needs to be sent to Fox News Channel. Also why not to Hannity, Laura, and Rush?

    Queen Sheila has had plenty of time to think up excuses for her faux pas thus far at town halls. They will be interesting to hear.

    Maybe Roxana Mayer wanted to be a Pediatric Doctor, but was not accepted into medical school, and in her mind, she somehow "IS" a doctor after going through school. Hey, maybe in her warped thinking, she is not in Grad school, but in her warped mind, she THINKS she is in Medical School about to graduate. Yeah, that's it. She has never awakened from her dream. She was talking in her sleep while sleep walking at the Town Hall meeting.

    She can blame it on sleep walking.

  20. wagonburner on August 13th, 2009 at 10:10 am

    "I'm not a doctor, but I play one on TV."

    Maybe she stayed at a Holiday Inn Express.

  21. Fontessa on August 13th, 2009 at 10:13 am

    Isn't it against the law to pass yourself off as a medical doctor? How many witnesses saw Mayer do this, and how many people may have believed her?

    Over the years…I have found (sometimes painfully) that the truth plays a lot better in the end than a lie which will eventually be discovered.

    Stupid - Stupid - Stupid

    that the truth plays a lot better in the end than a lie

    Simple, I learned a long time ago that honesty is not the best policy -
    It is the only policy.

    To bad our politicians never learned it.

    With so much access to information, the liberal media is having a harder time helping Hussein push his socialistic agenda. As more stories come out about how these so-called meetings are "staged", creditabilty takes a major hit. If the liberal media doesn't start challenging these "staged" events, they will take a hit. With all that has been going on at these town hall meetings, you knew something had to be "staged" when Hussein's went so smoothly. You know the cameras will be rolling if they try to bus in the participants for the next Hussein "propaganda" meeting.

    Why don't we ever see news clips of the folks getting off the buses? I heard at Obamanations town hall there were about four of them.

    Maybe the fine "Doctor" was honing her lying / inferior speaking skills while aspiring to become a full-time politician, being a career as a Doctor is obviously off the table now.

    I must admit she's a fairly attractive looking fake. But you have to wonder when she shows up with Maria Isabel! It's important for people to remember what people like Isabel are all about.

    David J, Seenyore Bramanti, Shannon et al - GREAT job folks!!!!

    Great investigative reporting guys.

    Since we will not hear about this on ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, etc perhaps you should consider forwarding it to Drudge, FOX, Rush, Hannity, Etc.

    Looks like the word is out and spreading fast. I have heard about this on Hannity and several other talk radio shows today. Great job to all the folks
    at Lonestar Times. This type of action is what is going to save us
    from tryanny. Let's all keep it up! Whoof Whoof!

    I sent the link to Drudge before 9 this morning, I guess that they didn't find it newsworthy?!

    My girlfriend just got back from the Humble P.O. a guy was there, passing out Obama photos with the stache on them. My girlfriend spoke with them a while, said she really didn't know anything but here's my girlfriends #. Call her. When she asked if I knew who the LaRouche's were. I groaned. She gave them my freakin' cell phone # !!!!

    She did say that she would make time to attend some of these meetings with me.

    This is an outstanding post. You're very insightful and your write up is still cracking me up.

    Excellent digging yourself DJ.

    Those meetings oughta be a hoot. LaRoucheites aren't as hot as your fireman friends, but they're more likely to be nearer to "age appropriate". :lol:

    They're also really nutty, so they should be entertaining.

  35. Darren10 on August 13th, 2009 at 4:23 pm

    Mayer identified herself as a physician who does not live in Jackson Lee's district. However, her name does not appear in the database maintained by the Texas Medical Board, which licenses all doctors in Texas.

    So, in other words, they cannot "authenticate" her doctor liscense?

  36. David Jennings on August 13th, 2009 at 4:27 pm

    34 cartinflamer,

    , but they're more likely to be nearer to "age appropriate".

    You are oh so wrong. The LaRouchie's are kids, mostly white males from 16-25. They are angry but don't know why and his "philosophy" attracts them. Trust me on this, I've encountered them at 6 different town halls now.

    But there are some older ones left, especially those ones that hang out in front of the various courthouses around the county.

    Is there any way we can file a complaint about this woman, posing as a Dr.? I'm not sure which website. Greg Abbott?

    Really? Dang. I guess they've gone through a lot of turnover or a revolution ( :) ). The only ones I've seen are not quite Geritol users.

    But there are some older ones left, especially those ones that hang out in front of the various courthouses around the county.

    Those are the ones I've seen. I guess they don't want to get their hair mussed.

    At the 1st town hall meeting, the 1st? LaRouche dude sat next to me, praying that nobody would think he was with me. There were empty seats, for peet's sake. I think he gave me cooties. :( Thanks anyhoo, guys. I'll stick with the firemen.
