News Flash for the Clueless "Heroic" Dumb-Ass Patriots



Or, what's uuuup wit these crazy ballheads?

I seem to remember some quote about "the last refuge of the scoundrel....", coulda also been "of the historically ignorant". I just can't recall...
Ok, let's just put aside for the moment the obvious regarding the minerals and frack-able natural gas as the story behind all the weaponized posturing taking place in Nevada on the land of the now-famous "settler hold-out". And also, I want to visit the 'desert tortoise' in a moment.

Here's a hilarious/tragic Native take on the whole situation from Indian Country Today:
Big news that went on all week was the confrontation between the federal government and the “militia movement” over the removal of cattle belonging to Mormon “pioneer” Cliven Bundy from federal land. Bundy has not paid his grazing fees for 20 years. Why? His ancestors settled those lands in the 19th century. “Time immemorial,” my Cousin Ray Sixkiller pointed out, “means different things to different people.”
The 68-year-old Bundy recognizes no federal authority in the matter. If he owed grazing fees, he claimed they would be owed to the state of Nevada, which entered the United States on Halloween, 1864. Because the Civil War was going on, the Nevada Constitution contained a “paramount allegiance clause,” which is seriously inconvenient for anybody claiming, as Bundy does, a right to ignore the feds.
The year before Nevada was admitted, the US signed the Treaty of Ruby Valley, which recognized the Western Shoshone as owners of the dirt Cliven Bundy is claiming the right to use because of his “pioneer” pedigree. In 1979, the Indian Claims Commission awarded the Shoshone $26 million in compensation for land lost to “settler encroachment” while the federal government looked the other way. Those encroaching settlers would be who Cliven Bundy cites today as originators of his right to graze his cattle.
The Shoshone refused the money. They had not agreed to sell the land. They did not agree that the land should be used for nuclear testing. Carrie and Mary Dann were Shoshone elders who stood up to the abuse. Mary walked on at age 82, in 2005. The 81-year-old Carrie was last arrested in 2007, protesting against the use of Shoshone land for nuclear weapons research.


The Dann Sisters grazed their cattle on land the Bureau of Land Management claimed since 1973, refusing to pay grazing fees based on the Treaty of Ruby Valley, Article VI of the US Constitution, and a report by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights of the Organization of American States that found the US to be cheating the Shoshone.
In 1992 and again in 2002, armed BLM posses rounded up the Dann Sisters’ cattle and sold them for grazing fees. The New York Times reported in 2002 that the Dann Sisters had been fined $3 million for “trespass.”
When a BLM posse came to round up Cliven Bundy’s cattle, armed “patriots” rode to the rescue. The BLM got about 400 head of Bundy’s cattle and Bundy got about as many supporters, many of them armed, from as far away as Montana. The Washington Post reported on April 10 that a sign at the entrance to the protest camp read “MILITA SIGHN IN.” Cousin Ray said he hoped their shooting was no better than their spelling.
Protestor Richard Mack, a former Arizona Sheriff, told a Fox News camera that the plan was “to put all the women up at the front. If they are going to start shooting, it’s going to be women that are going to be televised all across the world getting shot by these rogue federal officers.”
On April 12, the BLM postponed the circus, giving Bundy’s cattle back and leaving Cousin Ray to wonder where all these lovers of law and liberty were when the women up front were Carrie and Mary Dann?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

"Settler encroachment".....hmm. Forgot where I was for a minute there. Palestine? O, right, Shoshone land. The "nevada test site". US 'militarized zone'.

Brief appearance of the Tortoise took place. (Not the one in the Churning of the Milky Ocean story.) A desert tortoise.The kind of animal that gets 'patriots' all panties-in-a-wad. "Environmentalists are the problem! - damn corporate-funded, tree-huggin', dirt-worshipping pagans!" Whoops, they told ya to look over there, and you fell for it. Next.


Here's the story out last week, explained by RT's Abby Martin, of the increasingly spiking numbers of environmentalist's murders:
 


Some excerpts from the response letter of Cpt. Paul Watson of SeaShepherd :
[Digression: btw, you know, there's patriotic, and then there's matriotic...?]

DEATH TO THE GREENIES!

Conservationists and Environmentalists are amongst the most Dangerous Jobs on the Planet

Commentary by Captain Paul Watson

    Being a wildlife conservationist or an environmentalist is now considered one of the planet’s most dangerous occupations....
    We face very dangerous and powerful vested interests each day. They outnumber us and they are financially and politically connected. They are ruthless and they will deal harshly with anyone who intervenes against them and the resource or species they have in their sights....
    Over the years I have been beaten, jailed, shot, and threatened repeatedly. Fortunately none of my crew or I have suffered any serious injuries....
    I have known and supported activists in the field who have been murdered for defending nature and in most cases their killers were never caught or prosecuted....
    Unfortunately we do not hear about most of them because they are usually poor grass-root activists tackling issues in their own communities....

    Eerily as I was writing this posting, I received the following bulletin:
“Virunga National Park’s Chief Warden, Emmanuel de Merode, was shot today in an ambush on the road from Goma to Rumangabo. He is in serious but stable condition with bullet wounds in the chest”.
This is a man I actually know. I am hoping the injuries will not be fatal....
    In 2002 I had lunch with Conservationist Jane Tipton in St. Lucia. A year later she was shot in the head in her driveway. The murder remains unsolved....
    There is not a single case of an environmentalist or a conservationist killing any person. But if it did happen, it would be the leading news story internationally....
    We now live in a world where holding up a protest sign makes a person an eco-terrorist and also a target. Yet we can be killed without a corporate journalist lifting an eyebrow and certainly not lifting a pen.

The message is clear. “Get in the way of our profits and we will kill you.”

    With Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott describing environmentalists as agents of Satan and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper calling conservationists a threat to the national security of the country, the political message is clear. It’s open season on those who would defend the Earth.... 

   I cherish the non-violent foundation of the conservation movement. We have a noble legacy, in fact it is the only global movement that can claim a complete 100% rejection of violence as a solution. I don’t want to see it devolve into retribution with retaliatory violence but that will become an increasing possibility if the killing of us by them continues....
    Despite having this unblemished record, the propaganda continues to spew out of the mainstream media about how violent environmentalist are. You don’t see us on horseback with semi-automatic weapons looking for a show-down with the BLM. In the mind of our enemies, violence is holding a protest sign, blocking a whaling ship or making a film. The same words are used repeatedly like “eco-terrorist, extremist, or militant.”....
   What is clear is that it is fast becoming a more dangerous world out there for those of us who wish to protect biodiversity and natural habitats. We need to be more cautious and more mindful of self defense....

    And people asked me why I sometimes wear a bullet proof vest?
My old one has a bullet hole in it."

How deep the holy passion for Life?

In the summer of '69, in Nepal, I encountered a certain self-realized sadhu baba. His way of communicating definitely went beyond words, but I do remember him saying to a group of young foreign (western) people, "you don't know how to eat, sleep, piss, shit, or make love". He probably hoped he could make a difference. Well, we all hoped things would turn out different. But, here we are, here now, in a world with a couple added billions, still lacking basic consciousness and exemplifying rapid de-evolution toward some spectacular cataclysm or a soon-come mental zero-point. 
Each day I seem to have less and less to say, except in these intimate conversations with the beloved. Sure, we could put extra time and attention on the latest manifestations of humanoid insanity, or the shifting theaters in the war on consciousness, or the sorry state of what passes for 'alternative journalism' and 'activism for change'. But we really don't have the luxury any more. 

In this moment in time, this space of our mortal lives, we primarily inhabit what's called "the cancer bubble". If you haven't been 'in it', you could never grasp the overwhelmingly intense multidimensional states of consciousness that bubble encompasses. Sure, there are these little doorways to what's outside the bubble, which we venture through for a time each day, but we inevitably return out of necessity to this bubble, which we are continuously co-creating. No, it is not necessarily some 'dark', worrisome, fearful place either. It is a sphere of profound love, nourishment, compassion, transformation, creativity, crucial meditations, emotional freedom, and movement on all levels. It is fully alive truth. It can only evoke gratitude. 

I should mention that one soon becomes acutely aware of the many "cancer bubbles" out there, and there is surely support, which often appears in the most unlikely places and forms. One has to steel oneself and loved ones from the onslaught of the mental and pharmaceutical poisonous memes of fear, derision, and infantile arrogance of those in "power", with their million$ and steel-and-concrete monstrosities of clinical scientific delusion. I'm talkin' some ultimate tests of courage and spiritual perseverance here. And I'm also talkin' absolute depth of evil underneath the smiley, 'helpful' facade propped up by the deluded mis-educated minions in the 'health-provider' industrial complex. 
On the other hand, there are the alternatives. These are ways requiring a deep personal research and resourcefulness, and decisions made based on a deep trust in one's own discernment and the particular medicine way. That's all I feel to say for now. It's a big subject. 

I will say, on the other hand, that I'm looking forward to the period of time, before, during, and after April 15-22. [15th is the full-moon eclipse, and 22nd is the exactitude of the grand cross.] I do know how similar configurations worked out previously, because I was around for them. But this is orders of magnitude of intensity above anything previous. No one really knows how it will play out. There's just so much shit that needs to end immediately if not sooner, and it's hard to imagine being any closer to the edge of the cliff. Ordinary humans don't have the will to get it together to end the illusory separation imposed by the archontic forces, through war, nationalism, racism, speciesism, patriarchalism, religionism, useless political ideologies - all of which is rampant and completely denied. Everything is upside-down and racing in the opposite direction of the Real. It feels like maybe we ARE at zero-point. I haven't felt quite this way since I headed off to India to die in '68. But, WTF, it's a good day to die. [Breaking news: death ain't real.] I mean, really, are we here because we're supposed to spend our lives signing petitions to try to stop amerikan towns from having wildlife-killing-contests-for-kids [coyotes, prairie dogs, squirrels, bears, now crows], or to make the pope and queen disband their institutional pedophilic child-sacrifice empires? (Yes, of course 'merkins teach kids that wildlife are nothing more than targets, and yes, the real important VIPs have been ritually slaughtering kids for centuries - that's what planet this is, thanks to the archontic intrusion.) 

Oh well, I can't help but share this heart-warming story of US's largest family-owned mink farm, which barely escaped destruction by the ALF recently. The owner (female) had this to say: "there's a sickening feeling of having [your] personal space violated"! (From the article) It seems "her family and the ecoterrorists have completely different ideas about the natural order of the world. Her world view is Biblically established [sic], with humans having dominion over the earth and its creatures." But she does have one thing to say to those awful ecoterrorists: "I'd tell them that Jesus loves you." 
Sometimes you just have to be grateful for humor and irony. Yet one more reminder that you really can't fix 'it'.

Really, I have nothing to say, and I only started to put this post up for one reason, which is to show what the level of passion is that keeps me here on Mother Earth, excruciatingly beautiful and tragic - especially if you look up the story on the artist - but have a listen to Camaron de la Isla. CAN YOU HANDLE IT? I can, but only barely.

Wolves Belong; Humans...uh, not so much

Shiva's familiar - Nandi   Artist: Raj, exoticIndia.com
Counting down to Shivaratri - this Thursday, Feb. 27. Maybe we need to invoke the tandava - dance of destruction - aspect this time around. It's compassion-based 'destruction' anyway, right? Destroying what definitely doesn't work any more, what is holding us back from making that last-ditch effort to turn the immanent rip-tide of total destruction of a perfectly good planet around. On the other hand, we can at the same time keenly observe what each of us feels within, regarding the situation and what we're doing here in this 'now'. Absolute creativity and spontaneity is called for and en-couraged!

Being that the Wolf Nation is at this moment the most under-siege animal tribe in the western hemisphere, from the lowest, most degraded, corrupt, and butt-ignorant segment of the human race, the following short video, if you haven't yet seen it [1.5 million views], tells you all you need to know - on all levels. 
 

It's hard to come up with anything to say after that. The fact that an all-out war is allowed to be taking place against this natural-ness and simplicity of life-flow and beauty-creation is incomprehensible. Or at least undeniably unacceptable, as is almost everything connected to what they want us to refer to as "civilization". We know better. 

And, I'm equally at a loss to come up with a word to describe what this thing/machine/pathogen of 7 billion units that walks around in a trance on the planet's surface really is. 
What kind of creature (from where?) would imprison intelligent sentient beings, by the billions, in "iron maidens" (immobilizing body-cages), drive them ALL totally insane, allow their young to die from diseases by the thousands, then feed the piglets back to the mother sows, along with their shit, and then SLAUGHTER, SELL, AND SERVE THEIR CARCASSES TO THEIR OWN FAMILIES AND CHILDREN??!! 
Hey there, paleo-diet fans! Come-n-git-it! It's what's for dinner.  Sorry, look, I'm not making this shit up...it's on the mainshit teevee news.

After that Danish zoo baby giraffe public slaughter for kiddies, I guess the next step in innocence-destroying trauma programming will have to be finding a herd of unicorns to shoot at local kindergardens. 
Some kinda mass fucking human extinction needs to happen - either that or the rounding up of the self-described 'elites' to go to the newly emptied zoos, while all the material death-culture infrastructure is dismantled fast and the small-time psychopaths disarmed and totally and absolutely shunned, like beginning yesterday.....(zoos, not prisons - those scum need to be on display [for educational purposes, heh]). 

While we're on the subject of 'food-like substances', there is a source of information regarding all products world-wide that contain nanotechnology. You will be surprised at the sheer amount of common items seen every day, everywhere, that contain this zombie-science shit: 
CONSUMER PRODUCTS INVENTORY 
We are long past the point of making 'little compromises' on what we put into and on our bodies, and into our environments. 
It may be too late to halt any of these developments. No one knows what will become of us, nor any of it. Anyone claiming to know is a fraud and a liar, and should be ignored.

Being Number 1, and A Clue for Sports Fans

"Humans...of all natural beings are the only ones to be able to efficiently survive with no wisdom." - Martin Prechtel 

So freakin strange to me how all the narcissistic too-cool-for-school kool-aid drinkers, writers and bloggers and radio commentators, most of whom give big rec to the anti-'politically-correct' whiners, the anti-diversity crowd, the anti-race-mixing crowd, the anti-immigration crowd, the pro-occidental-culture crowd, pro-nationalistic crowd, the pro-capitalism crowd, the anti-affirmative-action crowd, etc, now - because he famously and humorously verbally shreds the sick-ass zionists and their enablers - embrace the French-Cameroonese comedian Dieudonné M'Bala M'Bala, because he 'pisses off the Jews'.
But, nevertheless somehow, commie pinko leftists and political correctness are still the greatest problems facing humanity on earth, apparently. So, everybody on board with demonizing Pete Seeger? OK, good. [ahem, sarcasm]
I hung with him in Benares in '07 at my guru's house. He sang "Raghupati Raghava Raja Ram" for the Indians (Gandhi's fave tune). He was there to meet with the Mahant, who initiated the Clean Ganga Movement, and my good late friend. Just found this photo of Mahant with the Muslim mufti of Benares - top dudes of the Hindu and Muslim communities chillin' together:



Everything's so goddamn clear-cut, neat, and tidy, I can hardly stand it (cough).
Civilization is such a catastrophic mistake. So far gone beyond any redeeming value.

100 million dumfuk 'merkins tune into super-shitter-bowl. A celebration of a level of ignorance never before achieved in the history of the galaxy. All over the land major rivers and water sources fill up with the most toxic substances ever created, at home while, in their names and with their oblivious apathetic approval, children freeze to death by the hundreds in Afghanistan and children eat dogs and cats as they die of starvation in Syria, courtesy of 'merkin/euro-created-and-supported fanatic psychopath armies of christ and allah, spread throughout the world like an evil wind, which it is. Study: Estimated that 30-50% food produced in the world is either thrown away or never makes it to market. Hell, native people are freezing to death on the rez, but who gives a shit?
"We're number 1!" The number one sickest, most vile, most ponerized, most anti-life, most violent, most destructive, most innocence-hating, most un-natural, most forgetful, most useless, most culture-less empire of insanity ever to exist on Earth. Since everything's about "winning", well, this "thing" has reached the finish line.

Homs, Syria - 2 yrs ago and now
Aleppo bazaar - 2 yrs ago and now
Some stats on good ol' No 1's winning achievements, since WWII:
Korea, 'Nam, Eyeraq 1 &2 - 10-15 million dead
Af-Pak, Angola, DRCongo, E. Timor, Guatemala, Indonesia, Sudan - 9-14 million dead
Plus ~10x those numbers of wounded

How many on the planet are NOT infected by the Wetiko virus, and/or not under the spell of inevitability of mindless drudgery-and-inane-distraction from cradle to grave, with underlying desperate effort against incessant boredom? Two percent? One percent? Meaning artists, poets, musicians, mystics, shamans, misfits, gypsies, uncompromising self-inquirers.
And, whatever the numbers, what is the real work to be done, done in the moment, in the moments from awakening to rest? Trying to creatively come up with ways to neutralize the "other one percent" at the top of the Wetiko epidemic, while simultaneously aware of immanent probability of extinction and/or total destruction, or surrender to trust in forces greater than we can know or imagine at work, and living each moment in awareness and love and reverence with that trust? Holding the trust seems to be the essential work, and all the great teachings, scriptures and guide-books basically leave it in one's own hands to know the authenticity of each person's source of knowing. It's beyond "figuring out". How deep can your meditation go? How much can you "get out of the way", and let creation happen?

Speaking of these mysterious numbers, I've learned that the animal communicator woman, Anna, who since having the leopard video go viral has received over 10,000 requests for help in participating in that type of work by folks around the world. That's ten thousand who actually sat down and wrote her about workshops, etc.  What does that number mean? How many considered it, but didn't quite follow through? What actually IS GOING ON?
If you need a break here, have a listen to something that came out 43 years ago. And really check out the words behind the insanely magical grooves of the Funk Brothers. Could every single line of these tunes have been written this morning?

 


I saw those photos of Putin famously calming the leopard cub, saying how he has "a feeling for animals", and thought maybe I should move to Russia (LOL), then he goes and gives the go-ahead to poison thousands of street dogs and feral cats for the Olympics. OK, scratch that idea. Everywhere is the same, the message that keeps getting pounded into my head.

Speaking of sports, ahem….here's some words from Martin Prechtel's 2012 masterpiece The Unlikely Peace at Cuchumaquic, speaking about the indigenous practice of prayer via RUNNING in the Pueblos of northern New Mexico:

[The tourists ask,] "how do they know who wins? How do they know when to stop running? Why do they run at all?"
"If someone actually broke the rules of tribal secrecy and told them that the Sun and the Moon and other beings that move in time and give us life are kept strong by the boys who run, and because the Sun annually runs his own race and helps the animals to thrive by doing so, and that the Sun tires, and when he tires, the world and all the animal beings begin to flag, and die, and without the animals we would die, and the running of the boys helps the Sun to keep moving and strong and the visible world strong, and that the Moon runs even harder but in a different pulse and by doing so keeps all the waters flowing, the plants growing and maturing, without which we and everything else, especially the animals, die, and because for both the Sun and the Moon in the sky there are no finish lines; they must keep moving or the world dies; for if there were a finish line the world would cease, so the beauty and strength of the boys' helped lift again these gods back into their eternal continuum so the world wouldn't die….so the world revived by the boys' running would be the winner."
" ...Civilization's spiritual fear of being left behind insists that its constituents unquestioningly race to survive, running only to ambitiously outstrip their neighbors instead of competing together to sustain Nature by feeding the beauty of human racing to the Holy."
"...Everything in Nature ran according to its own nature; the running of grass was in its growing, the running of rivers their flowing, granite bubbled up, cooled, compressed and crumbled, birds lived, flew, sang and died, everything did what it needed to do, each simultaneously running its own race, each by living according to its own nature together, never leaving any other part of the universe behind. The world's Holy things raced constantly together, not to win anything over the next, but to keep the entire surging diverse motion of the living world from grinding to a halt, which is why there is no end to that race; no finish line. That would be oblivion to all."
"…the entire devastating and hideous state of the world and its constant wounding and wrecking of the wild, beautiful, natural, viable and small, only to keep alive an untenable cultural proceedance is truly a spiritual sickness, one that will not be cured by the efficient use of the same thinking that maintains the sickness. Nor can this overly expensive, highly funded illness be symptomatically kept at bay longer by yet more political, environmental, or social programs."

There's so much more deep wisdom here, but that's a taste.

In the realm of deep cultural wisdom and ancient musical traditions, I leave you with the excellent Tony McMahon, traditional Irish accordion maestro - a 1/2 hour music-filled exploration of the true artist philosophy, spoken by one of the greatest musicians I've had the pleasure of hanging with, back in late '70s for a couple weeks of hitting the Irish pubs while he was in the country.

My 'mental problem' with 'tradition'

Grieving mother calling
So. The world, or a relatively large collectivity of its population, has just experienced an elevated focus and an interactive communicative expression around the recent phenomenon of what we might call "the Cove Experience". Actually, only about a dozen of "us" were really there 'on site', but undoubtedly millions were 'there' in some way. 

There were, interestingly, some articles in major media which quoted various pundits of the Wetiko death culture saying that those who 'connected' to the event (especially those on-site) are individuals who are suffering from certain kinds of "mental and emotional problems" and/or "problems in their personal lives". That's always predictable. And interestingly enough, this came up this morning in a post by R.J. Burrowes - Open letter to soldiers with 'mental issues' - very appropriately:
"Human beings have a brilliantly diverse and complex array of emotions and hence potential emotional responses as a result of the evolutionary pressures that shaped the emergence of hominids over millions of years. An extraordinary emotional capacity is one of the defining features of our humanity and, I would argue, far more important than any other feature such as our intellectual capacity..."

We have not all experienced war-zones in our lives, myself included, but we all live on a war-planet and a slaughterhouse-planet (and pretty near police-state-planet), and that reality effects every cell of every being. 
Ok, see here's my 'mental problem': 
I used to sit on the banks of the Ganges doing my practice, playing my drum, for days, for years - for the dolphins - who were my dancing, chirping, and attentive audience; who also accompanied my daily baths in the river (it was cleaner then), chirping at me, playfully swimming between my legs, circling me while I swam, and generally making my time there ecstatic.
It has grieved me intensely to see how they have almost completely disappeared from Varanasi during the last 4 decades - after being present for millions of years - due to pollution, where you still see the posters hanging in chai-shops of MaGanga-goddess-riding-on-her-dolphin calendar art. 
In later years, I experimented with playing on the cliffs of Point Reyes (Calif.) for the migrating whales. Similarly, they would pause and hang out, tuning in to the rhythms as I attempted to tune into them with prayers for their health and safe journeys.
Around 1979 we heard about the slaughter going on at Iki Island, Japan - similar to the present situation in Taiji - and there were strong protests. That's fucking 35 years ago! My thing was to spend all one night painting dead dolphins on the sidewalk the entire way around the Japan Embassy in San Francisco. 
Hello! Good morning!

Here's the deal: Whales and dolphins are running the Song Lines, in the same way various aboriginal cultures have done for tens of thousands of years. Whales and dolphins have been considered holy animals, very close to human beings in spirit and body, forever in most traditional cultures, and some whales only killed by those whose lives depend upon it, and with interspecies communication and arrangement. I don't know of any culture that consumed dolphin meat. [A few years back, in Taiji, that horrid little demonic town, a dolphin was caught who had vestigal "leg" flippers - thought by some indicative of their ancient 'land-form' from whence they returned to the sea.]

Well, I'm not even going to get into the "emotional capacity" of the cetaceans, since a mountain of evidence is readily available, but it's as huge, if not exponentially huger, than human levels. But what happened this week is, in part, a result of the massive exposure of the film Blackfish in screenings, on the web, and repeated broadcasts on TV. The crucial and defining scene in Blackfish depicts the mother Orca wailing for her child. This is what took place - livestreamed, and replayed, and described in extensive media (CBS, CNN, NBC, BBC, etc) and through SeaShepherd.org sites - a mother dolphin, captured in the Taiji net-pens, bobbing out of the water, calling and calling for her baby who was taken FIRST, on account of his/her being a rare spirit white animal destined for lifetime slavery/imprisonment for entertainment somewhere in dumfukistan, and then just submerging and never resurfacing, as witnessed by the Cove Guardian crew on-site. [Rick O'Barry, of 'Flipper' and 'The Cove' film fame, had 'Flipper' commit suicide right in his arms, so they're fully capable of it.] The now-captive baby has been named "Shoujo" by Capt. Watson, and "Angel" by others.
Shoujo/Angel -SeaShepherd.org
See, these demons are very fucking SCIENTIFIC, so they know that dolphin calves stay next to the mother FOR YEARS. These a-holes and their mafia politician mouthpieces are very fucking TRADITIONAL too, don't ya know. Well....
Sakae Hemmi of the Elsa Nature Conservancy in Japan said the claim of tradition is false.
"In fact, the history of dolphin hunting in Taiji is short. According to The History of Taiji, edited and published by Taiji town in 1979, the first recorded dolphin drive was in 1933, with subsequent hunts occurring in 1936 and 1944. It was not until 1969 that dolphin drives have been conducted on a large scale. The history of the dolphin drives spans not so-called 400 years, but a mere 45. Furthermore, in 1969, the main goal of the dolphin drive was to capture pilot whales as prized showpieces for the Taiji Whale Museum. In other words, the dolphin drive was purely for profit, having nothing to do with cultural history."

So, it's purely another instance of psychopathic lying bullshit, like everything that comes out of the mouths of death-culture defenders. Btw, captives are sold for $quarter-to-half-million a pop to SeaWorld-type parks around the world, but I'm sure that's not a factor...

Anyhow, "the whole world is watching" is not just an old 60s phrase. Viewers on all major media were given, repeatedly, a detailed description of just how 'humanely' the dolphin beings are 'put down' (up to 30 minutes to die), they were shown image after image of the color RED, a deep vibrant red, of the water of the bay in which two hundred [50 others previously captured for sale over 4 days] exhausted, traumatized, starving beings swam for hours in the blood of their relatives, they were shown the 'fishermen' driving over and over with their outboard motors through the tightly-packed, thrashing, bleeding, panicked pod, they saw the metal hooks grabbing the beings from the blowholes, ramming them against the skiffs....
Thousands around the world spread messages, called embassies, voiced their disgust and HATRED for the entire Japanese nation and culture for several days. Big hollywood and music 'stars' weighed in (incl. Japan-born Yoko Ono, etc). Caroline Kennedy (US Japan ambassador) was 'disturbed at the inhumaneness', but, I hear, later swallowed the false "tradition" kool-aid (or was it the mafia Dallas-style sniper-rifle hint?). 
And the group "Anonymous" hacked and shut down the provincial government's web-site, and warned of further, larger attacks if the "drive hunt" isn't stopped in next few weeks.

I should mention, for those not familiar with the scene 'over there', but perhaps now a lot more exposed: In Taiji, the mercury-embedded dolphin flesh is sold as "whale meat" and served in school lunches; the government is fully aware of this. Not only that, but (this is for real, you can't make this shit up) in Taiji they have a "whale museum"-and-dolphinarium where they keep some of the surviving from the slaughters, make them do tricks for the same "trainers" who just killed their relatives, so the idiot morons of the lesser human species can watch the 'family entertainment', then lunch on dolphin burgers. No, really.

The Cove film has been out since 2009 - 5 years. This week's Taiji round-up of 250 dolphins was maybe the biggest score for the soul-less butchers since that time. The combination of the numbers and the albino white calf probably just pushed the issue over into mass awareness. It has now finally spilled over into mainstream Japanese media too, bigtime. People there are becoming aware of the anger directed at their culture. But they're also a complete nation of sheep/robotic-and-programmed-slaves, like the vast majority of humanity. I have no expectations of "change" regarding anything to do with the infinite wrongness and insanity of everything the human species does to life and the Earth. I can only stand in awe of the people of SeaShepherd 'Operation Infinite Patience' witnessing and documenting this shit.

Been basically in an existential funk for days now, triggered by the 'event', but connected to very broad trends of events over my 67 years in this here Yuga...as I look at the Ganges dolphins I included in my 1980s tantric art piece on the wall.....
The question of why the dolphins don't warn other pods to stay away keeps coming up more recently, and the same in the matter of Faroe Islands "grind" of pilot whales. I've been trying to meditate on it. This is definitely different than 'beaching' due to various toxicities affecting health. Communicators say the cetaceans are supremely aware of our fucked-up-ness, and at the same time they are under enormous stresses, some of which we (and they) aren't even aware of the source (they're piling up wasted on Florida beaches and practically everywhere). Pods off Taiji, even in recent days, have out-run the 'banger boats', so they surely aren't trying to self-sacrifice. Maybe they just want a peaceful death somewhere, because THEY ARE LEAVING this stupid, human-destroyed realm/density FOR GOOD. Some 'channelers' have said as much recently.

Anyway, btw, I'm not a believer in the "avatar" meme - any of them, Jesus, Buddha, Krishna, and all the rest, especially the "ones to come" - about 'fixing' shit for the stupid, failed human species, fixing human madness. The stories all seem like social control mechanisms concocted by religions, based on a-holes who heard second-hand stories about mystic individuals' entheogenic journeys, and got the idea of a business model plan. Sure, I've had direct experience of non-physical energy beings, including our Mother planet Herself, and various powerful entities that assist shamanic travelers and cultural creatives. But, nothing even close to convince me that anyone or anything is going to show up, knock everyone to their knees, and display just exactly how we are gonna have to get our shit together, step by step. I think anyone promoting this type of scenario is self-deluded, and/or just running another age-old scam to stroke their narcissistic ego and keep from working at contributing something of beauty for the larger world of living beings.

What I see is that most everyone has forgotten what "culture" actually is. "Tradition" has become just another form of cover-up too. 'Why are we here?', Where did we come from?', Where are we going?' - these can only be answered in the deep silence within, never spoken. What people have known in their indigenous wisdom for millenia is that we humans have our instructions, like all sentient beings - to embody what "culture" actually is: creating beauty to feed the mystery/the holy by our actions, creations, expressions, and our very being-ness every day of our lives
Is there more? Perhaps if we followed our original instructions everything else would perfectly follow/fall into place, and be revealed, and no absurd desperate 'search for meaning' and 'way out of suffering' would be necessary or even exist. 

The final word on our madness of destruction of all life, running toward some imaginary 'finish line', and about what matters and what we should care and feel for, how we regard other sentient beings is: DO THEY SUFFER? 
If the answer is 'yes', then we are response-able. Can we respond with beauty? Can we apply our energy and resources to ending the pointless, stupid, and unnecessary madness of total destruction? Perhaps, even by any means necessary? These all become personal questions; there is no 'general' answer. 

I am making an amendment to what I previously wrote regarding the book Dispelling Wetiko. I still think it is an extraordinary and important book and subject. 
However, I have begun reading Martin Prechtel's latest - The Unlikely Peace at Cuchumaquic. What I will say is that in the very first chapter, there is more wisdom on the subject of humanity's root disease than in anything I've ever heard or read in my life. Then, the most extraordinary tale follows, which will blow the reader away completely. 
Martin's previous book, Stealing Benefacio's Roses, was a life-changer for me, and I anticipate the same for this volume, which I've only begun. I can't recommend this enough.

Coming back around to where I began here - an example of the ones with "mental problems" who are so feared, standing in witness, in silence:

We Will Remember from Animal Rights on Vimeo.

"We're not going to change Sexism until we address how we live with the Mother Entity, the Earth, and that's the reality of it. And we're not going to change and deal effectively with Racism until we change how we live with the Living Plants and Animals and World that is the Earth. And if we ignore these two things, then no matter what the people do and create for themselves, there will always be Madness and Chaos, because they're only Pretending to be connected." - John Trudell

Sacred White Dolphin Calf Taken by Psychopathic Japanese POS - UPDATE: SUICIDE AND SLAUGHTER

HAPPY MLK DAY!
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. said the following:
“Never, never be afraid to do what's right, especially if the well-being of a person or animal is at stake. Society's punishments are small compared to the wounds we inflict on our soul when we look the other way.”
THE MOTHER OF THE SPIRIT SACRED WHITE DOLPHIN CALF HAS COMMITTED SUICIDE.
THE SLAUGHTER OF 200 REMAINING BEINGS IS BEGINNING RIGHT NOW (2PM PT).
Do what you must. We are with them. They are us.
http://livestream.seashepherd.org/
THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING 


A sacred white dolphin calf has been taken by the Taiji pieces of shit to sell for hopefully millions $$$ to one of the despicable sea mammal "entertainment" crime corporations. He/she is part of 5 pods of bottlenose captured 2 days ago of up to 250 individuals, now awaiting slaughter (one of the largest captures in years).  
The calf was separated from the mother, loaded onto a truck, and taken to the Taiji "dolphin park" for holding. An albino calf will probably not survive without the mother, even less so than a normal calf. So the assholes won't end up making a dime.
JesusFchrist, every real culture in the goddamn world knows an albino animal is sacred. What the fuck is wrong with these subhumans?...oh, right, never mind. We know the answer.
US ambassador to Japan, Caroline Kennedy has issued a statement condemning the practice, and this instance in particular. 

Don't know what anyone can do, but it is an urgent issue being followed by millions on social media, etc. 
Now's the time to contact Japan consulates and embassies, support SeaShephardSociety, and spread word to boycott, shut down all Sea World type facilities forever, as well as tell everyone you know to watch BLACKFISH film. 

I will be exercising my communication skills as suggested by Anna Breytenbach in my last post. 

Here is one link of many, if one merely uses a search engine:

also the whole thing is being livestreamed at SeaShephard.org or Cove Guardians

Do Animals Remember What We've Forgotten?; Some encouraging signs for the new year

   
Writing about animal issues and not being a vegan (but mainly vegetarian) may seem strange to some. That's how it is though, and will likely remain so (too much time in India?). I have played instruments made of animal skins for 40+ years, and have always tried to track the source if possible - it's important and should be an integral part of our lives. We were recently gifted by a native Alaska woman with her smoked salmon that was the most exquisite medicine/food I've ever tasted. A small amount was savored over many days. On top of that came a neck/head-warming strip of sea otter pelt that heats up one's skin significantly in an instant in the sub-freezing weather here. This has nothing to do with 'fashion', and involves certain traditional ways of hunting, that we'll get more into later. Just wanted to put that out there fwiw. 

   Recently we watched the documentary "Dakota 38", and a couple days later found out our firewood guy down the road is a student and sun-dance participant with one of the elders who organizes and rides every year at Christmas time. There's an important and fascinating addendum to the story written on New Years day by John Kane (Mohawk) regarding Amerika's Greatest Emancipator Executioner. Not that it's any big shock and surprise what isn't known by the most historically ignorant population on Earth. (More on that point later, too.)

   Good stuff happens: On Dec. 30, as a result of collaboration between Oxford Centre for Animal Ethics and the University of Illinois Press, the Global Guide to Animal Protection was just published. The Global Guide includes more than 180 articles that survey the extent of worldwide human exploitation of animals from a variety of perspectives. It is a tremendous accomplishment and a permanent resource reflecting the "growing worldwide sensitivity to animals and a developing sense that - as a matter of justice - they deserve our compassion and respect. It has my warm support," writes Archbishop Desmond Tutu in his forthright foreword to the book.   

   This video was just uploaded New Years Eve by probably the greatest animal rescue-and-sanctuary organization in the world, Animals Asia: an artistic creation-in-motion by the sand artist Yuon Baolong, and singer Yang Yinglan, in support of the Asian Moon Bear rescue-and-rehab efforts - If Only I Could Speak. This needs a million hits.



   Following up on the video of Leopard Diabolo/Spirit (1/4 million hits in 1 month), we listened to a 1-1/2 hr. interview with the animal communicator Anna Breytenbach (HERE). Worth the listen, especially for the connecting guided meditation at the end, but if you haven't time in your life (I know), these are some of the astonishing and crucially important revelations that Anna has received in her communication experiences:

   "Animals are willing companions on the communication journey.

   "They are very aware of the general illness that humankind is suffering from. They have immense compassion for how we humans have lost the plot and what we're doing to ourselves, immense compassion for our disconnection. Animals' primary concern seems to be for us humans.

   "What animals really want is to be seen for who they are - seen, known, and supported energetically. 

   "One of the greatest gifts of nature is [She] being a huge mirror to show us what we're doing individually and collectively.

   "Despite what they are going through, they hold us in everlasting compassion.

   "All animals are always busy in their roles, gifts, and sacred purpose, which we have become blind to discern. So many layers of what they are doing, way outside of ordinary human knowing, and literally doing things as important as stabilizing the planet....whales' migratory paths in sea, elephants' paths on land match ley and magnetic grid lines...(and the fencing and walls of both human environments and arbitrarily designed 'sanctuaries' have drastically screwed up most species' migratory abilities).

   "Animals are connected with deep knowing that physical death is a transition in a state of being, not an ending.

   "Ancient hunters promised good clean, honoring death the night before a hunt, asking the species for a clear sign of which individual would be willing to sacrifice for the human tribe's survival."

That last quote is a far cry from the throw-back-some-beers, get-in-the-pickup, blast-away-at-the-first-thing-that-moves bullshit that today's fake hunter morons engage in throughout the 'civilized'-and-dumbest-empire in the history of the world.

   Recently, our latest 'reverse-litmus-test' word was "commie" - anyone making frequent use in today's world is an idiot.
This week's idiot word (and I don't care what the hell anyone thinks) is this:
"politically correct/PC"! Yeah, that's right. Sorry to break it to those who feel disappointed, but you need to stop being historically ignorant like the rest of the population and the popular bloggers. Here's the history, though I doubt the facts will change the mind of those suckers who have been thinking they're soooo cool guzzling the kool-aid (with the excuse that most justice movement orgs have been co-opted and infiltrated by the usual shit-disturber suspects):
Political Correctness - intended "to insinuate that egalitarian democratic ideas are actually authoritarian, orthodox and Communist-influenced, when they oppose the right of people to be racist, sexist, and homophobic" etc...(I guess we may as well include speciesist in there too.)

  
Very glad to see the story of Esther the wonder pig. Bacon jokers are long overdue for some whacking from the universe, like the fake hunters...
Some of that may be coming in 2014! It may be the year of fed-up, at least, if not 'waking up'.
