Petition the US Government to stop 'Chimera' (human/animal hybrid) research & creation

EXCERPT:

Human-animal hybrids – called “chimeras” – are an ethical problem for the scientific community. Thousands of articles debating the ethics of chimera research appear under Google scholar, using only the free and public medical file search. It is unfathomable how many more debates on its ethical implication might take place in private within the scientific community.

Petition the United States government to restrict and/or ban human-chimera research due to it being unethical, unnecessary, and contrary to the rights given to human life under the Bill of Rights in the constitution, and a violation of human dignity by signing the petition and passing it on.

By signing this petition, you are agreeing to several things:

1. That chimera research and creation has a grave potential to be highly unethical and should be subject to government investigation, if not permanently stopped.

2. That the stated primary needs met by chimera research and creation – organ donation – is closer to being met by 3D printing than by chimera research and creation (CR&C), and therefore CR&C is not a necessary service.

3. That harvesting organs out of “animals” is an unethical principle at the cost of appropriate animal husbandry and even scientific treatment of animals as test subjects.

4. That chimera research and creation violates the essential principle of human dignity that the founding fathers of the America Republic recognized as objective found in human beings, and further conformed to by subsequent leaders of our nation - leaders like Washington and Lincoln, the latter being someone who brought the concept of human dignity to one of the most oppressed group of people in American history.

5. That all chimera research and creation ought to be brought to an immediate halt by the US Government until its ethicality and necessity for the greater good of the human race are both either guaranteed or dismissed. By allowing it to continue unregulated and unreported on, the U.S. Government as a body is potentially allowing abuse of human lives.

Please sign the petition and pass it on. Contact your representatives.

The philosophy behind chimera research has disastrous implications for all peoples, especially marginalized groups.

I think our life is made difficult by congressional Republicans’s unconscionable silence. They were very willing to speak out against the Muslim ban and against refugee bans during the campaign, but have gone completely underground in the last 24 hours.

This is a Muslim ban. Trump is banning refugees and immigrants from Muslim countries, with an exception for Christians. That’s the definition of the kind of Muslim ban that Republicans were quick to reject during the campaign.

I am going to do my best to shame Republicans into joining us to oppose this measure, but they control congress. Democrats can’t change this policy by ourselves.

I’m going to make the case to them that this is terrible national security policy. This is objectionable from a moral standpoint, but it’s also going to get Americans killed.

You’re going to start seeing this populate recruitment bulletin boards from terror groups — very quickly. we’ll have evidence that this policy will swell the ranks of terror groups.

Hey, pagan friends, I had me a thought:

The correct people in Heathen circles (of which I am one) talk a lot about “reclaiming our faith,” since a lot of Germanic spiritual symbolism and language is also used by white supremacists; that talk has been motivated in large part by self-interest, since any reasonable person wouldn’t want to be associated with those assbags, but something occurred to me earlier today: It could also be an active offensive tactic.

A fun fact about the white nationalist movement is that there’s a *huge* religious schism inside of it; Odinists, atheistic National Socialists, and the Christian Identity people all cannot stand the sight of each other. If us Heathens–and I’m here using that as an umbrella term for every kind of non-Abrahemic spirituality with a vaguely Northern European flavor, from Asatru to druidry to certain tendencies of Wicca–did something no more substantial than try to be more vocal and visible talking about who we are and what we do, it could throw a wrench in their works, could hamper their solidarity.

I’m telling y'all to go out there and start blogs or YouTube channels or make memes or what the heck ever, take control of the narrative, and I think you could literally save lives.

Today I remembered how Jesus chose, hung out with, and trained up 12 messy, sinful, average underdogs (aka. the Apostles) who carried out His plan and preached the Gospel, shared His love, and made disciples in nations all over the world… and I thought about how flawed and average I feel sometimes, but how God can take what seems small, average, and unusable, and use it to change the world.

That really encouraged me.

Ambrosia labs sells breast milk from women in Cambodia, who are subject to forceful marketing upon delivering their children in local hospitals. They pay Cambodian women 64 cents per ounce, while they pay American donors $1 for the same amount. Here, the primary issue is not the price inequality. It is turning women into a product to exploit. I can’t even express how disgusted I felt reading about two American men describing Cambodia as a “sweet spot” to tap into. This is just one example of white men seeing women of colour as machines, objects to profit from. Their bodies are used to make American men profits, while they are forced to perform these jobs because it pays. Poor women are targeted because they are looking for short term financial gain. We need more awareness about the exploitation of third world country women by the West. We need to stop Western Christians with savior complexes coming into these countries and exploiting local women. Instead of spending money on flights to these “underdeveloped” nations, donate that same money to organizations in those countries. We don’t need you to come in and save anybody. 

💖 So Evra still calls Cristiano ‘Christian Dior’ 💖

Let me bring back this golden treasure from the past!
Cristiano & Patrice interviewing each other. Watch it!
(my translation)

  • Evra greets Cristiano with his nickname “Christian Dior"!
    LOL.
  • Patrice tells the story when they first met as opponents in their national teams and there wasn’t so much of affection.
    Cristiano makes a gesture of ‘clash’ with his fingers and laughs
  • Then he praises Cristiano as a nice normal guy and perfect professional
  • He says Cristiano speaks a bit of French, Cristiano gestures ‘so-so’
  • Cristiano (in Portuguese) in return loves Evra’s happy personality.
    “He’s always laughing, always happy, a person with a good heart.”
  • Patrice (in French) says that he uses to greet Cristiano with ‘‘Good morning/afternoon/evening, how are you doing, Christian Dior?”
    He uses to call Cristiano like that because of his fashion sense ☺
  • Evra says they always mix up English, French, Portuguese
  • Cristiano (in French): “First, I saw him playing in the France NT”
  • Evra (in French): “Many people judge him, but they don’t know him. They judge him for his way of dressing, his behaviour on the pitch. But for me, he is a normal lad. What surprised me most is his professionalism, he’s always the last one to leave training. He knows his talent, but he always keeps on working to be on top. I learnt a lot from that attitude.”
  • Cristiano (in Portuguese) tells how great the team spirit is at Man United
  • Cristiano (in French): “What do you do after a match?”
    Evra (in English) “I go to sleep because I’m very tired.”
    (both laugh)
  • Evra (in Portuguese): “Why do you always win all the trophies ‘Man of the Year’, ‘Playboy Star’ …  Why?”
    Cristiano laughs like only he can ♥
    Answer (in French): “Because they award me. It’s because of the team work”.
  • Cristiano (in Portuguese) “This club is like a family. We spend more time with our teammates than with our families.” … “I love football, so I love playing in all competitions.”
  • Evra (in French): “Christian Dior, would you like to win the Ballon D’Or again?”
    Cristiano (in English): “Yes! I want to win it again because the feeling to win it is unbelievable. I’ve had the opportunity to win it one time, but I would like to have the opportunity to win one or two more. I work for that.”
  • Cristiano (in English): “What is your dream for your individual awards?”
    Evra (in English): “Win the Golden Ball! My dream is to win the Golden Ball, my friend! But I know with a player like you, it’s impossible. That’s why you need to give sometimes some space to me.”
    (laughter)

Did you know that Cristiano can speak French?

The thing is, I’m not really concerned about Trump’s plan, because he just wants to increase his wealth and try to fill the black hole of need that is his lack of self-esteem. He doesn’t give a shit about anything else. Go ahead. Make your deals and fill your press room with applause boxes. Fuck if I care.

What I’m really concerned about are the people who put him into office. Not the voters–the billionaire believers who want a Christian nation. They are using him and they will get rid of him when they are ready.

Trump isn’t distracting us from his dastardly deeds. Trump IS the distraction.

This election has showed me that the country basically hasn’t come very far. We’re about to elect a man who is a privileged, white male who views everyone else (women and minorities) as his footstool. All the progress we have made toward racial equality and equality of the sexes (which granted sometimes feels like we haven’t made any) will be erased. The president sets the tone for the country and based on everything that Trump blurts out of this mouth, no amount of “great”s before it will help change the fact that our country has taken two steps back. I fear for what the future will look like for us as women, minorities and as a nation. These are truly scary times. 

It will be interesting to see what happens and how the many Christians I know who voted for Trump react when he destroys our country and their values. They have turned a blind eye to everything out of his mouth other than the fact he’s pro-life. smh

From Lahav Halevy on Instagram:

Tel Aviv, 1920s: “The municipality of Tel Aviv hereby requests from all its citizens not to use in the coming Purim holidays any of the national or religious dress of our Muslim or Christian neighbours as costumes, in order to avoid insulting their feelings. The City of Tel Aviv.

Amazing… Shabbat shalom, and Happy Halloween to those celebrating.

Speak out against the Muslim Ban

If you have already called your representatives about Trump’s executive order banning people from 7 predominately Muslim countries from entering the US (with exceptions for Christians, of course), here’s some additional comment lines to try.  I haven’t called these numbers myself yet, but they seem like a good starting point:

  • DOJ comment line (comments may be directed to the new pro-ban Acting Attorney General, Dana Boente, who replaced Sara Yates after she was fired for “betraying” the DOJ by refusing to defend the ban): 202-353-1555
  • DOJ main switchboard: 202-514-2000
  • DOJ Office of Communications and Legislative Affairs (contact point for the Executive Office for Immigration Review): 703-305-0289
  • Customs and Border Security Info Center: 1-877-227-5511 / 202-325-8000
  • TSA Customer Service Contact Center: 866-289-9673

“Lucifer” in Isaiah 14:12 presents a minor problem to mainstream Christianity. It becomes a much larger problem to Bible literalists. LUCIFER IS NOT SATAN!

 Lucifer makes its appearance in the fourteenth chapter of the Old Testament book of Isaiah, at the twelfth verse, and nowhere else:

“How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! How art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

“O Lucifer” was used to express “O shining one”, and not the name of a biblical character, and certainly not Satan. Its own simple context clearly shows this.

The first problem is that Lucifer is a Latin word. So how did it find its way into a Hebrew manuscript, written before there was a Roman language? To find the answer, I consulted a scholar at the library of the Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. What Hebrew name, I asked, was Satan given in this chapter of Isaiah, which describes the angel who fell to become the ruler of hell?

The answer was a surprise. In the original Hebrew text, the fourteenth chapter of Isaiah is not about a fallen angel, but about a fallen Babylonian king, who during his lifetime had persecuted the children of Israel. It contains no mention of Satan, either by name or reference. The Hebrew scholar could only speculate that some early Christian scribes, writing in the Latin tongue used by the Church, had decided for themselves that they wanted the story to be about a fallen angel, a creature not even mentioned in the original Hebrew text, and to whom they gave the name “Lucifer.”

Why Lucifer? In Roman astronomy, Lucifer was the name given to the morning star (the star we now know by another Roman name, Venus). The morning star appears in the heavens just before dawn, heralding the rising sun. The name derives from the Latin term lucem ferre, bringer, or bearer, of light.“ In the Hebrew text the expression used to describe the Babylonian king before his death is Helal, son of Shahar, which can best be translated as "Day star, son of the Dawn.” The name evokes the golden glitter of a proud king’s dress and court (much as his personal splendor earned for King Louis XIV of France the appellation, “The Sun King”).

The scholars authorized by King James I to translate the Bible into current English did not use the original Hebrew texts, but used versions translated … largely by St. Jerome in the fourth century. Jerome had mistranslated the Hebraic metaphor, “Day star, son of the Dawn,” as “Lucifer,” and over the centuries a metamorphosis took place. Lucifer the morning star became a disobedient angel, cast out of heaven to rule eternally in hell. Theologians, writers, and poets interwove the myth with the doctrine of the Fall, and in Christian tradition Lucifer is now the same as Satan, the Devil, and — ironically — the Prince of Darkness.

So “Lucifer” is nothing more than an ancient Latin name for the morning star, the bringer of light. That can be confusing for Christians who identify Christ himself as the morning star, a term used as a central theme in many Christian sermons. Jesus refers to himself as the morning star in Revelation 22:16: “I Jesus have sent mine angel to testify unto you these things in the churches. I am the root and the offspring of David, and the bright and morning star.”

And so there are those who do not read beyond the King James version of the Bible, who say ‘Lucifer is Satan: so says the Word of God’….“

Mexíco is NOT A Spanish word- it is a Native Indigenous word and was the Original name of the most powerful and advanced Nation on the Continent when the Spanish arrived here. You know them as Aztecs, and that’s how they are identified in History books, but that’s only because the Spaniards wrote history after the Conquest in their own favor.

The Mexica Nation was toppled and her citizens were forced to change their language and religion to Christianity and Spanish- Those that converted were no longer identified as Indians and we’re now recognized as Latinos or Christians (Imitation Europeans), and we’re used as mercenaries against the unconquered still independent Native Nations of the New World.

Now speaking Spanish or being a Christian didn’t magically erase their Native Ancestory, nor did the repeated Rapes and infusion of White DNA into the Natives Brown bodies. La Raza remained a largely Brown Skinned Race even after 500 years of Colonization, largely because there were just TOO many Indians to absorb and Too few Spaniards, but what the Spanish were unable to Erase Racially there were able to erase culturally-

Make the Conquered Natives Speak Spanish and worship as Christians so they stop identifying with their Native Ancestors and believe that they are part of the Conquerors Lineage and use these converted Imitation Whites to Subdue even more Native peoples.

As Mexico advanced North into what is now known as the U.S. the Spaniards were Always accompanied by Indian Allies- Usually Aztecs, or Tlaxcalans from way down south who could be used as Translators when approaching previously unknown tribes- Another tactic of the Spaniards was to relocate large groups of converted Indians to recently Conquered regions so the newly Conquered could see the difference in treatment given to Latinized Indians as opposed to still wild Indians-

it was a successful starategy, so successful that by the Second or third generation the people stopped identifying with their Native past and began to believe that they were actually Latinos and the Wild Indians were of no Kin to them.

So what we had happening now was large groups of Latinized Mexican Indians were being placed in New Mexico, Texas Arizona etc as Settlers, and as a Buffer between the Still untamed Indians and the Spanish settlements- Many Apache, Navajo, Pueblo Indians and Plains Indians were absorbed and pacified this way-

Once they stopped practicing their religions and speaking Spanish they became known as simply Mexicans, oblivious to their Native ties and connections to the lands of their Ancestors.

The Term “Latino” is one of the Biggest Lies of the Conquest, and one the most Powerful Tools the Spanish employed- it robbed the Conquered of their True Identity, and linked them to the Conquerors by Language and Religion, but one thing it Couldn’t do, is erase the Sangre de Indio in each Mestizo Face- the Lie of the “Latino” is so powerful that when we see a White Skinned person Speaking Spanish, we’re shocked! Ignorant of the fact that Spanish is a White European Language-

Latinos are people from Europe whose Nations speak Latin based Languages, Italians, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Moldova, Romania, Monarco, Vatican City, San Marino and Andorra- Mexicans are NOT Latinos simply because they speak Spanish just like Black Americans are not Anglos simply because they speak English-

Weve awoken from the Colonial Nightmare that robbed us of our History, our Legacy and our Native ties to this land- We won’t allow Europeans to Label us Anymore- We are descendents of the Mexica! The Apache, the Mayans, the Tzapotecas, The Huichol, the Navajo, the Chichimecas!!! 14 percent of the population of Mexico Still Speak an Indigenous Language! there are 68 indigenous languages spoken in Mexico Today! But again, Speaking Spanish doesn’t erase our Native Blood- our DNA proves it- and were rediscovering what 500 years of Colonialism Failed to erase!

This Friday, Christians have NO RIGHT to say we are a Christian nation. Y'all elected a man: who opposes immigrants when Jesus was himself an immigrant who said to welcome the stranger; who supports the death penalty while Jesus was a victim of it; who supports increased international tensions and war-hawk behavior while Jesus called us to be peacemakers; who supports taking away healthcare from 18 million people when Jesus explicitly calls us to heal the sick; who supports privatizing and belittling public education when Jesus himself was a teacher; who supports cutting off social nets to protect the most vulnerable among us, when Jesus said our whole lives will be judged on how we treat the lowest of the low…

Fuck America,

Fuck Americans. I can’t believe this, I cannot believe we let this happen. There ain’t shit about America that’s great anymore. This is the most humiliating outcome and I hope that the half of the nation that isn’t white/male/straight/able/christian finds ways of coping. This is shameful, so not what the younger generation of Americans want the rest of the world to see us as. As a First Generation Latina I cannot begin to think about the hardships many Latinos are about to face. The American Dream is dead to me.

here’s a tip

this is a Nazi.

This is a person who reblogged a post of mine via some Nazi blogs.

Notice they do not call themselves a Nazi. Instead, they use a collection of dog whistle interests that require specific contexts to be understood as basically white nationalism, colonialist white-heritage ‘antiquities’, specifically white nationalist Christianity, Nazi-related gender roles and ‘traditionalism’. Notice they work with children. 

Learn to recognize Nazis. They do not look like goose-stepping jack booted thugs all of the time. Beware.

**POLITICAL POST THAT EVERYONE SHOULD READ- PLEASE REPOST SO OTHERS CAN TOO** my friend seth posted this on facebook, and as a female american citizen i see it important to share posts like these

Dear Donald Trump,

As I reflect on your first week as President, I must admit your actions are unsurprising.

While I am mostly speechless, I am in awe at the harm you are already inflicting on various populations within this nation. I am in awe that you, an ad hoc celebrity, could even get elected. I am in awe that you spent over a year campaigning using misogynistic, xenophobic, bigoted, homophobic, and ableist language which you are now institutionalizing at your own will.

I am also scared for many reasons. I am scared as a gay man, and for my friends in the queer and trans community, whose rights you intend to strip because they do align with your heteronormative, “Christian” values. I am scared for my boyfriend, a Muslim immigrant, who you will forcibly register and at all costs send back to Saudi Arabia. I am scared for my undocumented friends whose families you intend to tear apart. I am scared for the indigenous populations of this nation, whose struggle with their colonizers, OUR ANCESTORS, is ever present, and that which you intend to make harder by denying access to clean water. I am scared for the womxn of this country, whose access to SAFE, AFFORDABLE reproductive healthcare you intend to so easily take away.

Riddle me this:
1. Who gave you, a MAN, the right to decide what is right and necessary in terms of reproductive healthcare for the womxn of this country?
2. Why do you, an UNSUPPRESSED, WEALTHY, WHITE person get to decide the fate of refugees, whose daily fight is to EXIST? Something you will NEVER relate to or understand.
3. When will you accept the reality that the Islamic State does NOT represent Islam or Islamic civilization?
4. When will you read the Constitution, the foundation of the principles of this country, and understand the illegality of your actions and executive orders?
5. When will you accept that America did NOT elect you? Rather a group of WHITE MEN whose complexes are as fragile as your temper.

Your justification for these atrocities as rooted in your “Christian” values or “business experience” is hardly valid and I think your bigotry, 3 marriages, and 4 bankruptcies would agree.

We DO NOT want you as our President, and your actions are not only detrimental to the people within our borders, they are detrimental to everyone who sees our country as a beacon of hope. Your actions are the clearest sign of your privilege; for if you pulled your head away from Twitter, you might be able to see the danger and harm you are inflicting on millions of people. People who have worked hard to have what they have and be where they are. You are forcing people to relive a life they fought hard to escape, showing me you know nothing of sympathy and the foundation of this country.

So while you sit in the White House with your billions of dollars, I would like you to remember two things:
1. It is our tax money that funds your $400,000 salary. You were elected to represent the people- not your personal, disgusting, bigoted views.
2. You think your actions are making America “great” again and ensuring civilian safety, but you, Mr. President, are the biggest threat to the majority of this country.

Sincerely,
An Angry Person

P.S., if you find yourself reading this, denying its relevance to you, you have just realized your privilege.

It is time to stop being silent. It is time to engage, rise up, and resist. It is time to show that we are the future of the nation. #NotMyPresident #MuslimBan

Disclosure: when engaging in this conversation, it is important to remember the history and founding of this nation. This land is not ours; it is the product of historical and contemporary colonization.

Llamas gather on a hillside overlooking Peru’s Lake Titicaca, the world’s highest-altitude navigable body of water. Because of the llamas’ ability to move heavy packs over the rough Andean terrain, native people in this region have used them as pack animals for centuries. At one time thousands of llamas grazed the lake’s high basin.

Donald Trump is Unimpeachable. Here’s Why. – SIIP Campaigns – Medium

There is no question that Donald J. Trump is a lying, thieving, backstabbing, two-faced, violent criminal.
There is also no doubt that he is the front man for a far-right network of white nationalist politicians and businessmen that want to revive the Confederacy. This network has been contracted by Vladimir Putin to facilitate the takeover of the federal government of the United States as part of a larger effort to dismantle western nations, alliances and power. Collectively, they have occupied the White House and begun the process of dismantling the federal government, isolating the US from its allies, bankrupting the economy, restructuring and hyper-funding the military and cleansing the nation of people of color, the poor, people living with disabilities, non-Christians, and anyone else not deemed part of the master race. Together, under the authority of Donald Trump and his Republican Congress, the GOP and the Russian government are gutting the corpse of the United States and positioning its zombie carcass to carry out the will of an adversarial Putin led eastern alliance that is openly working to dismantle the Western World.
And he is legally unimpeachable.
In the United States, the only entity that can impeach Donald Trump is Congress. A Congress that has formed a united front against the Democrats, against Civil Rights, against the people of the United States and in support of Vladimir Putin. They do not respond to their constituencies, their duties as officials, the constitution, media pressure or public shaming. They respond to their contracts. Which have been implemented with the explicit intent to prevent the removal of Putin’s GOP puppet government.
Congress will not impeach Trump.
Here’s why. The Constitution gives only the House of Representatives the legal authority to bring formal charges of impeachment against a sitting president. It would take half of Congress to successfully bring charges. The Senate has sole power to bring a president to trial for impeachment. Two-thirds of the Senate would have to vote to convict and remove Trump from office to successfully impeach him. With the GOP in control of both the House and the Senate, as planned, there is no chance that the GOP will violate its contract with the Russian government in order to impeach Trump.
So here’s the quick takeaway:
The United States has been taken over by a white nationalist puppet government contracted by the Russian government. They want to dismantle federal authority in the United States and all western nations for their own political, economic, social and military visions of an ethnically-cleansed, post western world order.
They are willing to lie, cheat, break laws, and murder to accomplish their goals. They know how to rig elections and utilize mafia tactics. They don’t respond to constituencies, political pressure, or the media. They cannot be shamed away, tweeted away, marched away or phone called away. The will not be investigated by the GOP controlled House and Senate Oversight Committees or Department of Justice. They cannot be impeached.
Ok, that’s a lot. It might be more than you want to hear. But it’s what’s happening. Take it in. Take a breath.
Let’s continue.
This isn’t going to be easy to digest.
The formal plan to overthrow the federal government of the United States has been in action for years. Vladimir Putin is a ruthless military and political strategist. He knows the offensive and defensive histories, strengths and weaknesses of his nation, its alliances, it’s adversaries and those standing in the way of his ultimate goals. And his ultimate goals don’t begin and end with Hillary Clinton or even the United States. Vladimir Putin is years into a strategy designed to take over the federal governments of the Western powers, install puppet regimes, dismantle their individual and collective authority and usher in a Russian led new world order.
Putin didn’t just up and one day decide that he was going to partner with a C level businessman and celebrity to embarrass Hillary Clinton. He has been plotting to tear down the western alliance — including the UN and NATO — since his days in the KGB and has spent years successfully guiding the GOP to victory in their efforts to take Congress and the White House.
Putin considered every lever necessary to pull to ensure his puppet government would take the White House and that there would not be anything that could be done by Congress or the federal government to unseat him. He planned, he executed and he won. He didn’t just win, but Putin and the White Nationalist network he contracted to carry out his agenda kicked our assess. And they are still in power — kicking our asses.
What’s worse, the Democrats had numerous opportunities to counter the maneuvers of the GOP and they did nothing. As the stated defenders of minority rights and the strategic defenders of the nation against the Conservative Confederacy, they failed to live up to their responsibilities. This failure allowed them to be easily defeated by the GOP’s efforts to dismantle federal authority and Putin’s efforts to dismantle the West.
Every nation has specific governmental, political, and social systems that must be considered when designing a strategic agenda. Different strategies were required for the UK than in the United States. Different levers needed to be pulled to accomplish Brexit than to pull off MAGA.
In the United States, Putin needed to identify a far-right conservative network that aligned with his vision to dismantle federal authority and implement a system of white nationalism. He did not have to look hard to find the GOP and its neo-Confederate heart. That core has functioned since the Civil War and its Confederate flags still fly high around the United States. It has used force, laws and criminal activity to dismantle civil rights, suppress voting, incarcerate and impoverish communities not of the chosen race, and take land from sovereign entities.
The overwhelming majority of GOP candidates and members of the Trump administration are funded by Robert Mercer, David & Charles Koch, Sheldon Adelson, the Scaife family, the DeVos family and other core members of the far-right funding megalith, the Donor’s Trust. These individuals are responsible for such entities as the Tea Party, Freedomworks, the Heritage Foundation, the American Enterprise Institute, the Manhattan Institute and the Federation of American Immigration Reform. They are behind the gutting of the Voting Rights Act, the implementation of illegal voter ID and citizenship requirements. They train “poll watchers.” These individuals funded Breitbart and produced anti-Democratic media and campaigns. They invented the War on Cops and actively work to dismantle civil rights and pass anti-immigrant and anti-POC legislation. The most prominent members in their network are currently occupying the white house and enacting the agenda contracted between them and Vladimir Putin.
Putin also had to identify his opposition and their strengths and weaknesses in countering the maneuvers of the GOP. That honor would go to the Democratic Party — and its defensively inadequate core. The Democrats have stood by and done absolutely nothing as communities of color stood helpless against police brutality and the inaction of Congress, the Department of Justice and the Attorney General. They did nothing as the Crosscheck voter purge system was implemented across the country and the Voting Rights Act was gutted. They did nothing to protect Tribal sovereignty at Standing Rock. They refused to take action to provide a living wage and fair housing to their working-class constituents and refused to enforce compliance with ADA standards even on election day. They even refused to legally counter Citizens United v FEC or Shelby County v Holder.
The Left has allowed the GOP to get away with almost every single policy maneuver they attempted. Especially those that functioned to deprive the rights of minorities, the poor, and people living with disabilities. It is through the destruction of these rights, though, that the GOP was able to successfully defeat the Democrats, overthrow the government and begin implementing their collective and contracted agendas with Vladimir Putin.
By refusing to defend those most at risk, the Left failed to defend the entire nation.
All Putin had to do to successfully carry out his plan for the United States was:
- Ensure the far-right network of white nationalist conservatives was able to overtake the GOP.
- Implement systems of voter purging and suppression to ensure the election would be altered in favor of his chosen candidate.
- Ensure the GOP has control of the House, the Senate, the White House.
- Ensure the loyalty of the Attorney General, the Assistant Attorney General and the Chairs of the House and Senate Oversight Committee.
- Neutralize resistance
Successes in these key areas would allow Putin to install his puppet Administration. This puppet administration would be guarded and protected from both impeachment and pushback on his policy objectives by the House and Senate, Impeachment and Investigation would also be prevented with the placement of the AG, the deputy AG and the Congressional Oversight Committees.
And that is exactly what he did.
Using an information and media assault campaign involving a collaboration between Russian and far right media channels, and by positioning a Jill Stein as a third-party candidate, the Russian led white nationalists made their assault on the popular vote. By implementing Crosscheck, disseminative the Voting Rights Act, passing a wave of illegal voter ID and citizenship requirements, shutting down polling places and violating the ADA, they were able to take control of the RNC by 2011, Congress by 2014 and the White House in 2016.
In order to keep Trump in the White House, measures had to be taken to ensure that he would not be investigated and he would not be impeached — no matter how many laws he broke. Legally, the only entity that can authorize an internal investigation of the President is the Attorney General. If the Attorney General recuses himself, that responsibility falls on the Deputy Attorney General. Ensuring that the Trump Administration had the overwhelming practical support of the GOP Congress guaranteed that no matter how detestable or unqualified his candidate of choice — Putin\Trump could place whomever they wanted in these two positions. With Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein in place — there will be no internal investigation of the President by the Department of Justice.
The only authorities that can legally call for an independent investigation of Trump’s illegal activities and ties to the Kremlin are the chairs of the Senate and House Oversight Committee. Jason Chaffetz and Devon Nunes were strategically placed into these positions to ensure no independent investigation would take place. What this means is that as long as Chaffetz, Nunes, Rosenstein, Sessions and Congress are all GOP occupied — there will be no internal investigation and no impeachment of Donald Trump.
The Trump administration cannot be investigated away and they cannot be impeached. They cannot be marched away or called away. They cannot be voted away. They will not compromise. They will not relent.
To date, we’ve lost HUD, the Department of Education, the EPA, the State Department, our allies in Mexico, Australia and Europe, our civil rights and practically every Constitutional right beside the second amendment — just to name some of the most evident losses. We are about to lose our healthcare, what’s left of our social safety net and any protection we have from police and ICE agents. And we are pointed directly at a nuclear fueled Third World War and heading right towards it.
Meanwhile, the Democrats have still refused to form a united front against the GOP and its maneuvers and The Resistance is still depending on marches and calling campaigns that will not bring about the results they seek to achieve.
So now it’s time for the Left to ask itself, “Given that we can’t impeach, imprison or march our way out of this — what do we do? And how do we get it done before it’s too late?”

The Ouroboros or Uroboros (/jʊərɵˈbɒrəs/; /ɔːˈrɒbɔrəs/, from the Greek οὐροβόρος ὄφις tail-devouring snake) is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.

According to the Teachings of H.P. Blavatsky the Ouroboros symbolizes:

(1) Eternity, such as in Hinduism where the great serpent Ananta-Shesha, who some portray as having seven heads and others as being thousand-headed, represents Eternity and Infinity itself.

(2) The never-ending cycle of evolution within the Eternity

(3) The “circle of necessity” of the Egyptians or the numerous reincarnations of the soul throughout its cyclic evolutionary journey, periodically casting off its temporary body just as the serpent periodically casts off its skin.

(4) Wisdom, the serpent having always been the chief symbol of wisdom in all nations throughout history and revered as such in all the religions and philosophies of the world except theological Christianity. Yet Christ himself is recorded as using the ancient symbolism, which was perfectly known throughout the Middle East, when saying “Be ye wise as serpents and harmless as doves.” In Sanskrit the word “naga,” meaning serpent, is also a synonym for “initiate,” one who has been initiated into the Mysteries of the Esoteric Wisdom.

(5) The circle is also the ancient symbol of perfection.
