TRUMP ERA OPPORTUNITY
Some people, aside from die-hard right-wingers, were excited about the election of Donald Trump because they thought he was a proponent of significant change. They naively saw him as someone who would confront the Deepstate/corporatocracy and the media conglomerates that represent it. After his cabinet appointments it is becoming increasingly obvious, despite a smattering of 'good' moves, that he merely represents a slightly differently flavored group of banksters and oligarchs.
There is, in my opinion, one important way that Trump is positively affecting us. Everywhere I look, I see people waking up. Those who may have been lulled into a false sense of security based on ill-informed notions that Obama was a good leader, are now questioning things like never before. They are paying attention to the WikiLeaks information, alternative news, various whistle-blowers and activists that have been trying to warn us for decades. This awakening may be important enough to trump all the negativity. (pardon the pun)
The opportunity as I see it, is to take some time out of our busy lives to inform ourselves as to what is 'really' going on - what are the forces that run our world, that affect our lives and the world that our children will inherit. The challenge, as I see it, is to take this opportunity in a way that is compassionate, peaceful and caring - avoiding fear and anger. Maybe we can even celebrate this volatile era as a bona-fide turning point in the evolution of human consciousness. It is an opportunity to remind ourselves that we can and will bring about positive change - that consciousness itself is a powerful force.
In an effort to do our small part in growing our awareness, we have decided to start up a discussion group focusing on anything related to geopolitics, American foreign policy, the influence of banks and corporations, our political leaders, the Deep State, etc.
We are extending an invitation to anyone who is interested in these things to join us at our home for semi-regular open discussions. We're thinking that they will happen on Sunday afternoons, from 1 to 4 pm, about once per month. There will be no fee or donation for attendance and we will provide light snacks and drinks.
Here is a list of topics that I feel would make for lively, fertile discussion:
- What and who does Trump represent? How worried should we be?
- What is the current state of affairs worldwide? Some very informed people believe we are on the brink of world war 3.
- How did we get here? What is the history of global geopolitics? What are some of the key factors that have contributed to events over the past several decades? What has happened behind the scenes?
- What role do the banks and corporations play in world governance?
- What have the establishment, the power brokers behind the Bush/Clinton/Obama regimes, been doing over the last several decades? Many of the most significant developments have been under-reported by the mainstream media.
If you would like to participate in the discussion group, please reply to this newsletter and I will send you the specific details as to when and where, etc.
The information provided below is being offered as a resource for those who may be unaware of this info and who may want to become acquainted with it. It includes a list of some of the important players in the current environment, as well as some recommended videos and websites.
Peace & love, Dennis.
