Oh the wonders of winter here in Arizona! Why the jubilation? We actually have cold water from the tap this time of the year. Hell, outside night temperatures will even get below 32-37° F with afternoon temps of 47-60°F roller coasting slightly higher up till Spring! And the tap water is drinkable and thus far, safe, unlike certain other states who have had a corporate constitution shoved down their throats along with its poisoning – Not Funny at all.
As the energies of the season unfold, with the diminishing of the light as we descend into darkest, longest night of the year, not only one’s instinctual areas, but one’s highest levels of consciousness respond to the pause, to this suspension of light and deepening darkness. Occultly, the significance of the season is one of introspection and moving inward to the discovery of new personal awareness that grows from the seeds revealed in silence; then the Sun begins its ascent, bringing back longer hours of daylight, to nurture the new found sprouts of awareness. With the beauty and stillness of the season, we welcome you to our December 2015 edition of the Spiritual Climate Newsletter.
Since our previous edition was published in October, we have witnessed many noteworthy news events, including the disturbing attack on Paris, the poisoning of innocent citizens, as well as continued unnecessary deaths of the mentally ill at the hands of police here in the United States, complimented by the bizarre phenomenon of the rise of Neoliberal Donald Trump in the American political scene. It appears as if the Beltway Media Outlets of misinformation known as COMCAST, ABC, NBC, CBS, CNBC, CNN, MSNBC & FOX, et al., have once again successfully engineered consumer sentiment against government and helping to assist the downward spiral of enslaving citizens, while feasting on upward ratings spirals.
The above network gatekeepers of propaganda and marketing falsehoods, at the behest of their respective executives generate blasphemous quagmires to extend their appetite of control fostering an incomplete presentation of facts, while slithering towards being a more visible threat to the Economic Security of the citizens of the United States swaying to and fro out in the wide open. Case in point: the greatest threat to the citizens of the USA comes from the Shadow Banking system of the Financial Sector, not from the government confiscating second amendment gun rights.
CNBC still continues to paint Government as useless as their moderators whine about being slaves to the Federal Reserve, which translated means: They want to sow distrust of any ‘business’ government does so they can decide how to own the Fed Reserve under their terms of a Totalitarian Capitalist ‘Monism’ inspired by the Thatcherization process. So the question: will Andrew Lack’s leadership reduce voices of economic disinformation by allowing voices in the Economic Heterodoxy, where Chartalism “insists on a historically grounded and socially embedded analysis of money” 1 to empower citizens whether or not solutions are conservative or liberal? How about also enabling views that clear distortion and completely unnecessary fear mongering of our Fiat currency? How about private sector institutions come clean and clearly state that they want to create credit instead of using our perfectly fine Sovereign currency which is Fiat to promote greater growth and stability than the instability of Gold-Standard which puts a limited resource to be controlled by the hands of a few in the private sector?
We should stop any attempt at public power grabs generated by the CEO’s of the above named and those unnamed corporations which paves a way for the finance sector business collectivists to overthrow United States government’s public power in oversight required to prevent a homogeneous giant, privately driven industry where CEO’s enhance economic marketing agendas reduces genuine substance of issues of political discussion into a prima facie of political glossolalia?
Oh, and no news of yet as to whether Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh or Bill O’Reilly have taken any psychological screenings to determine the depth and breadth their totalitarian capitalist corporate neoliberal agendas from their respective entertainment pathos. These people are in an argument somewhat like trying to defend one space after a period in a sentence while stating there is no historical support for two spaces after a period in a sentence although albeit a benign parallel. Some of us have brain injury with its related visual disturbances and we need two spaces, or at least a space and a half after a sentence to help prevent neurological jumbling. So why don’t you just go and em-quad yourselves.
Meanwhile across the pond…
The series of attacks on Paris November 13, 2015, marked the most powerful display of terrorism since the bombing of the Twin Towers here in the United States September 11, 2001. The Death Cults of ISIL, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant claimed responsibility for the deaths of 139 people. Ironically, the scheduled 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference was successfully held from November 13 through December 12 2015. On December 12, 2015, the participating 195 countries agreed, by consensus, to the final global pact, the Paris Agreement, to reduce emissions as part of the method for reducing greenhouse gas. Terrorism and concern for the environment in the same locality; polarity. To add more recent data to the headache of our earth’s climate change a new core pulled from Siberia reveals a 2.8-million-year history of warming and cooling !
Back here in the United States, a little known event happened right under the noses of the people and was given next to no national recognition or press time. Thankfully, The Real News Network on December 17, 2015 reported with Award-winning journalist Curt Guyette provided some jaw dropping ‘who dunnit’ and then followed by The Rachel Maddow Show in alerting our Nation to the Capitalist Terrorism inflicted by Governor Rick Snyder’s unique dictatorship on U.S. children and adults of Flint, Michigan by causing Lead Poisoning in the entire water system of Flint, Michigan by changing the source of water to the city from the Detroit water supply to the Flint River. Any adult parent would have been charged with child endangerment for such actions. According to Rep. Mo Brooks stance on the second amendment, which, using his logic citizens of Flint, Michigan should arm themselves to depose capitalist dictator Gov. Rick Snyder.
Thankfully Ms. Maddow followed up with a series of comments implicating Michigan’s Governor Rick Snyder and the emergency manager law, stating “Michigan made a decision with Rick Snyder a few years ago to do something very, very radical to the way we govern ourselves as Americans, something that nobody else has done,” Maddow said about the emergency manager law. 2 Serious Update: Rachel Maddow posts: How to help Flint, Michigan.
Donald Trump has made this a most astonishing Republican Presidential Campaign. Seeing his popularity and following, it makes one wonder if we have in fact lost our collective minds, but yet, he makes some statements that ring true, as shocking and un-American as they may sound when voiced. Donald Trump has the Bozone Beltway Media eating out of his hand and Trump has proven there is no freedom of the press—only the freedom of the press seeking ratings profit.
In our view it appears Trump and the entourage of entourage of economic illiteracy promoted by Cruz, Rubio and Christie, other than showing a lack of comprehension from historical and empirical economic knowledge of how Money actually works on a federal level, anyone inane economic hack seeking to destroy the United States of America’s economic growth need only to Balance the Federal Budgets. Broadcasters continue to create fear and tension by preying on the extraordinary amount of economic illiteracy in our Nation, part of what is spoken by Beltway Media. It hits a basic core of humans distrusting anything where money is reported (whether the report be entirely factual or not) to being mishandled to tilt the playing field requiring anyone not wealthy to hold on for dear life. Broadcasters are being paid (many not all) to hammer this inequality to demonize the government (public) to enhance the false halo of the private sector in having open arms for citizens to be protected and cared for while censoring the real news of what is happening. Just listen to UMKC’s Prof. Michael Hudson’s, a titan amidst world economists, in his interview on The Real News Network entitled: The Top Three Economic Stories of 2015. Prof. Michael Hudson ‘breaks down how the increasing wealth gap, suppression of wages, and IMF rule changes are creating a battle between the classes.’ Where is truth that economic Michael Hudson’s are being given voice in the Beltway Media?
This type of cognitive ping pong ball is what can be seen in politico shows such as With Due Respect on MSNBC. Perhaps this is Andrew Lack’s first display of producing economic neoliberal bullcrap, outside of BloomBerg TV, hiding under the guise of MSNBC’s/NBC’s definition of conservatism which is as with other beltway media pushers, taking politi-fact and trimming it with a pair of scissors to fit their imaginary conservatism or liberalism to stream feed to viewers as our writers have viewed with the airing of neoliberal opines from John Heilemann and Marc Halperin? They should take care not to become viewed as what Paul Babiak and Robert Hare would call, “Snakes in Suites” or degenerating into just another GOP talking points show. Let’s face it, the private sector is the source progenitor of unemployment.
If you have ever been a student of Dr. Strickler, you would know his standard practice all of his students must employ and exercise: stating aloud the words that are rattling around in our heads; to literally talk out loud to ourselves so we can hear and ‘see’ how outlandish… or sensible… or lacking in discernment those thoughts sound when voiced. That Trump through his materialist Egoic quality can reach as far into the fearful hearts and minds of those in the USA who feel neglected, taken advantage of and persecuted is a major indicator of just how far we, as a country, have slipped into the abyss of being controlled by big business. What a confusing state of affairs! Closest thing to true Americanism is being voiced from Democratic candidate for President Bernie Sanders, whose plan to bring the USA back into the present century with with his Family and Medical Insurance Leave Act that would cost only $1.61 a week(?) marks a truly Family Values Agenda for American workers.
The spirit of capitalism is NOT founded on the lunacy of the Protestant work ethic which serves to create Americans into being a slave living to work, this lacks a fundamental principle of Agape in genuine spiritual principles, and should create serious doubt that God’s central theme of redemption is profit oriented protestant slave-work ethic. We need to get back to sanity where we work to live, love and enjoy; where reaping a harvest of benefits from our efforts contribute to growing our Nation—not a corporation.
Spiritual relationality requires interrelationships of people engaging the the power of the Soul’s purpose toward integration, understanding and growth atoning from any philosophy of Business Bestiality (Hobbesianism), which stymies spiritual growth from the false righteousness generated by erroneous interpretation to if it makes a profit then it is righteous-motive. Otherwise we are likely to see the continual reincarnation of blood-sucking workhouses of John Locke, disguised as multinational corporations designed to enrich few capitalist oligarchs. Spirit cares not about Profit and there is no bargaining with Truth-whether you are right or wrong, wealthy or poor. Only the captain of business, the Devil, requires bargaining with…
So, we welcome you to share in some of our thoughts, awakenings, and ponderings as we walk, skip, run, trudge, sometimes joyfully, sometimes painfully, along our own Paths of Return, ever seeking the wisdom and knowledge of the Light.
In This Winter 2015 Edition of Spiritual Climate Newsletter:
Dr. Strickler ….. is still running late …. To be announced
Wendy Ford points out the difference between compassion and the rote act of “giving” in her article entitled “True Compassion Is an Aspect of Unconditional Love”.

Glen Ford shares his insight as he grows in awareness of how to take control of his own reality in his article “The Production Company-The subconscious Recorder”.
Christine Ford uncovers the symbolism of the roots of a personal bias that grew into her perception of reality in “Roses Abound”.
And so in closing, we here at SCN invite you to take the time to pause for a moment in the rush of reality, take a deep breath, grab a warm cup of your favorite beverage and snuggle up with the December 2015 Edition of the Spiritual Climate Newsletter.
It is our hope to inspire and invigorate you as you open to the beauty of the New Year, with all the blessings and challenges that the Lord of Life gives freely to all as we share the beauty and truth, as well as the ugliness and lies of the deepening darkness and then rise of light on this whirling sphere known as Earth, from our location in the land of the free and the home of the brave (though not necessarily sane) the United States of America.
We wish for you to be graced with an awesome awareness of the beauty of profound discovery during this sacred season, whether it be an inspiring, life-changing blast that takes root instantly and changes your perception in a single flash of insight, or a whisper of a prompting that will grow over the years.
