Preface to the revised 2012 edition
Native American Quantum Mechanics I’ve been in Europe (exiled) for over 4 ½ years. Three of those years have been spent in Germany with its fixation on all things Native American. There are plenty of Disneyland events going on over here, and I’m not talking about Paris I suppose it would have been easy to prostitute my 24 years learning with some of the last great masters of American Indian knowledge, Blackfoot, Plains Ojibwe and Cree But the culture has been so maimed by people half trained, already, I could not bring myself to dirty it any further. So, I have been quietly, individually, teaching a handful of interested people but refusing any relationship with money having to do with my endeavor in this regard. It has been an investment based solely in faith, faith in my ethics, faith in what my teachers had shown me, faith in my adopted Native culture’s original values. If you give better than you get, you are a winner Now, suppose I had the opportunity to teach a group of Germans and we all were seated on the ground in a circle. Knowing my background, German mentality being what it typically is, they’d all be looking at me in awe as though I were a god and I’m in the same moment thinking “If you think you are important, you don’t belong here, these folk all think I’m important, so maybe I don’t belong here” With all these expectant faces peering at me, I hate to tell them the truth but they are here because their own culture is failing them, so let the pain sink in “Our lesson today is short and simple. Here is a one cent coin. Pass it around the circle, I wish for each of you to actually take a moment, only that, a moment, to contemplate the power of this tiny bit of copper. No questions please, I will explain when the little penny has returned full circle” Who knows what one might think? Power? A single euro cent will buy you precisely nothing! So the 15 people take 15 minutes to appear all serious at what would ordinarily seem a ridiculous proposition, as the little penny passes hand to hand, some finger it, other bow their heads in meditation over it, but hey, I’ve all these years training so best behave as though in the presence of a god .. but just now they’re about to discover a devilThey much pondered bit of copper has finally been passed back to me and I look everyone in the eye, one to the next, holding up the single euro cent between forefinger and thumb while saying: “In Quantum Mechanics, once two particles have been associated, they remain forever associated, no matter whether you separate them by a universe in space and time. We have always known this. It is why we, Indians, had been taught to be careful

4 in our thoughts, and cautious in our associations and physical items such as pennies are in fact associations “Now, just imagine this were a large old penny such as were known 100 or more years ago, and I had taken it off a dead man’s eyes only this morning. In that case, each one of you would now be associated with that act, as well the dead man’s life, and even the cause of his demise “I want you all to go home, look at and consider the source of your belongings, and know why the Native spiritual name for money translates literally: “The leading trouble maker” It is recommended the 3 preceding paragraphs be re-read and kept in mind while reading this nextThe ancient Native view concerning the ‘web’ of life is precisely like this: We construct reality through two phenomena, primarily, our actions and our associations. Our associations tie us to the web, our person represents the intersect where the several or many strands meet and as such, our actions influence our associations, no different to our associations influence our encounters or ‘luck’ How one behaves and what one associates with, determines the direction and quality of everyone’s life, without exception. To construct a web which will resonate health requires self discipline incorporated to intelligent choice of associations and related energies. This is because everything you do, and everything every member of your ‘web’ does, impacts and resonates throughout your web The theoretical physicist Bernard d'Espagnat states: "The doctrine that the world is made up of objects whose existence is independent of human consciousness turns out to be in conflict with quantum mechanics and with facts established by experiment" He might as easily have said ‘Plato was wrong’ when Plato described with his ‘objectivity’ why the common man needs an autocratic class of ‘objective’ rulers: “He lives from day to day indulging the appetite of the hour, and sometimes he is lapped in drink and strains of the flute; then he becomes a water-drinker, and tries to get thin; then he takes a turn at gymnastics; sometimes idling and neglecting everything, then once more living the life of a philosopher; often he is busy with politics, and starts to his feet and says and does whatever comes into his head; and, if he is emulous of any one who is a warrior, off he is in that direction, or of men of business, once more in that. His life has neither law nor order; and this distracted existence he terms joy and bliss and freedom; and so he goes on”-Plato I put Plato’s error into his context of ‘objectivity’ in relation to what Edward Bernays had accomplished with propaganda vis a vis consumerism and our own science shaped in Platonic philosophy, the ultimate ‘objectifying’ or assigning Plato’s belief in human consciousness existing independently of our intuition and related surrounding objects (nature) as the ultimately destructive equation:

When Plato 'objectified' man (our thought process), he set in motion events that culminated in a personified modern Europe represented in Edward Bernays You cannot set man apart from, or set man above the natural environment without experiencing negative consequence; the isolated narcissism shaping Western reality resulting in destructive behaviors to include science an unconscious necrotic religion expressed through symbol of malevolent technology In this case, Plato's base 'appetite' has returned mutated from exile to 'consume' his Republic via consequence of consumerism and dying environment –R.T. West Now, consider I’d arrived at this insight via illiterate Indians (however fluent in their language and oral traditions) primarily, with a bit of lovely insight into Plato provided by the Africa centered scholar Marimba Ani. The bottom line is, most pre-Columbian Native American cultures (the non-hierarchal ones) had been living a practical philosophical knowledge based in advanced understanding of Quantum Mechanics (following timeline established in linguistics and genetics) for as long as 40,000 years prior to Plato and modern scientific theory Related: Bell’s Theorem Plato’s Republic Edward Bernays ‘Propaganda’ Marimba Ani’s ‘Yurugu’ Special thanks to Penny Aldrighetti for pointing out the Native American connection to Bell’s Theorem, stating: “Bell's Theorem posits what you would articulate to that group. It is quite a paradigm changer if you really try to understand the implications of this statement. Mind-blowing, in fact” © 2012 Ronald Thomas West, mass paper media redistribution prohibited

8 Introduction I’m one of the nicest and most unassuming people you’d ever meet. All I wanted was a simple life with a woman who loves me, kids, a garden, a dog, and to be happy. I’d worked hard, for years, sorting out my personal crap and the potential was there Then, these closet-gay fuckers called neo-cons, went out of their way to louse up my journey to happiness. On account of that fact, this ‘literary endeavor’ came into being This is an autobiographical novel assembled around various essays deliberately intended to provoke outrage, get teeth grinding, and to put really creepy bugs up stupid people’s butts. Thinking people, on the other hand, could learn a lot reading here In a world in which 48% of adult Americans believe modern man was ‘created’ in his present form precisely in 4004 BC or alternatively, within the past ten thousand years, and Christian fundamentalism drives the wildly popular sales of Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” series of books in which the ‘Anti-Christ’ manifests on Earth as the Secretary General of the United Nations, not to mention the Christian fundamentalist belief ‘Armageddon’, the Biblical war of the end of civilization set in the Middle East, must occur for the Christian faithful to advance to Heaven and now is the time… (The Economist, Special Report on Faith and Politics), one should shudder at the “The New Wars of Religion.” And particularly moving into 2011 with the USA’s military neo-cons pushing for a war with Iran I was already acutely aware of the issues as put forward by the Economist’s writers, and I in fact have a deeper understanding of the underlying issues of Christian fundamentalism in some small regard at least, having been to Bible College as one of my several failed stops in attempts at social reintegration following my roughly one and one half years in a war zone, witnessing Man’s violence on Man. Both the war and Bible college, in retrospect, were a very American experience. The first time I put on a flight helmet and a little later reached up and flipped the ‘Nav’ toggle switch on the small console in the gunner’s seat of a Bell UH-1H helicopter, magically the Beach Boys were singing “Good Vibrations” in my helmets headphones as I watched the jungle canopy move a few feet below the landing skids on our aircraft. I was young, I was new and it was exciting, I won’t lie to you. I was thrilled. I was not thrilled, however, one and a half years after, on my departure date of November 8th, 1971, after having participated in this corporate profiteering war against “Godless Communism.” The subsequent mental violence I encountered at Azusa Pacific College (now university) seemed no less ugly, in retrospect, the student intellectual violence over matters of doctrine. To be honest, I have been sorting out both experiences ever since. Do I believe in God? No. Am I an Atheist? No. Nor am I Agnostic It seems to me that everybody has got it wrong. At least in Western Civilization, which has overtaken the world, and I would argue includes Islam and the classic Far East cultures. Any child should be able to grasp that a Human species which harvests life sustaining nature at a pace exceeding life sustaining nature’s ability to regenerate, is pointed to a wrong direction. Let’s keep it there for a moment, child and species. The math is kinder garden. The entire Human species is complicit, or soon will be,

9 with the destruction of the last wild habitat of a possible handful of Amazon tribes not yet assimilated, to sustained economic development. Sustained economic development is the present western economic model which has overtaken the world, stemming from the Industrial Revolution of America and Europe. To deny this is tantamount to claiming the Moon is made of Green Cheese. Like I once heard a Black woman comedian claim: “Denial ain’t just a river in Egypt” Science and Religion, the great argument, both have it wrong. Science cannot deny it has provided the means to destroy the planet through provision of technology. Religion cannot deny it has failed to instill sustainable Human values that would prevent the planets destruction. Environmentalism as we know it, is a joke too, just more denial. Because the planet has produced a principle of cancer, Sustained Development, where we have already reached a point of no return for civilization, as we know it. To return to a balanced state in Nature, at the least in a presently unchanging social circumstance, most of Humanity must die. If the world’s leading scientists already know this, then they are lying to you by withholding the information or perhaps it is a ‘State Secret.’ Maybe none of them wants to be the first to stand up and say in no uncertain terms “It is all over for us.” If they do not know it, they are just plain stupid This can all be covered up by arguing that Religion is even more stupid. That would be correct if something could be done about it. That is the problem. Nothing can be done about Religion except tell ignorant people the truth, everyone is almost certainly going to die on the present path. Of course to the ignorant Christian fundamentalists, that translates, yes, everyone except us, because we get to go to Heaven. They actually believe that, and that only makes them equal to those scientists that believe there is a possible ‘saved by science’ future, the greatest of oxymoron. Science put us in this circumstance and asking Science to save us is like using wild land fire control technique in the urban setting: Lighting a backfire. Set fire to the bottom of the building to take fuel away from the fire raging at the top of the building. It makes about as much sense Here we live in an existence where Sustained Economic Development’s exploitation of nature allows a Saudi prince to own an Airbus 380 super-jumbo jet as a personal flying palace, a $300 million, 240 foot double deck fuselage with a wingspan just short of the length of a football field weighing in at 560 tons. A resource devouring colossus for friends and family that is nothing short of the western world’s greatest individual expression of what I have named “Ego Priapism.” What would be our world’s foremost collective expression of Ego Priapism? Space exploration. What is the point of exploring Space? To create an Ark, to escape our planet wide selfdestructive madness? Our Human race should be quarantined. Or we should kill the most massive ecologically destructive projects of science and technology, such as Super Jumbo jets and Space exploration and the immense resource demands of these lunacies, as an investment in intelligence. And as an argument to the Cosmos and Mother Nature that we are worth having around. It makes more sense to make that statement, than to pander to the planet-wide life threatening technological aggressions of Science or the moral aggressions of Religion. Because in the end, they are both exactly that: The same Mental Aggressions. The bed partners that screw out of biological drive and hate, they hate themselves and hate each other with the resource raping of the entire planet, attended by technologically driven wars of faith and

10 religion. It’s all the same thing folks. I’m calling it ‘Honky Mentality’, regardless of Race. Because it all began with the Industrial Revolution, and that happened in Honkydom In the following ‘Novel’ I am going to take a little bit of Tim LaHaye’s “Left Behind” Anti-Christ away from him, reduce this bit of Anti-Christ to a good guy that is a Devil, albeit a harmless but otherwise highly threatening to peoples common fears Devil, to make a point. That point would be that I was able to learn more about Western Civilization’s foibles of science and religion from a man that had never been to school, completely illiterate, but spoke seven (now dying) Native American languages fluently and who was able to show me reality that does not exist for most of today’s world however, a reality that was once the predominant intelligence of at least two continents: The Americas. He showed me more real intelligence than any Western education, secular or religious, by far. It is a sometimes ‘satyrically’ MEAN read. But it is lucid, something lacking in our increasingly maddened world of the faith driven politics of Religion and the equally ignorant secular god named Science. If there were actually such a thing as a Native American god, it would be androgynous and its name likely would be “Lucid.” Of course the typically paranoid fundamentalist Christians would note the first four letters of that Native god’s name and freak out at the idea of Lucifer. Fine by me It occurs to me to say an Anti-Christ might not be such a bad thing if one were to dispassionately study Christian fundamentalism. Christianity is a schizophrenic religion and the fundamentalists have the one half of it: that half following the teachings of Saint Paul. Paul’s intolerant teachings are diametrically opposed to the teachings of the Jesus who preached tolerance. It was Paul who made Jesus into the ‘Christ’ from whom we learn our cannibalistic social attitudes: concerning deferred responsibility for our behaviors and meanwhile pursuing the destruction of our planet. It has been established in research it was Paul’s followers who put the words on Jesus lips to conform Jesus to the idea of their supremacy and disregard of living an intelligent, responsible and accountable life. These monotheists need not concern themselves with intelligent living on Earth because they all have a better place to go to. This fundamentalism, in one form or other, has been around a long time. If an Anti-Christ came along to undo a bit of Paul’s work and get people pointed more towards the original ideas of, one could say the ‘un-Christianized’ ideas of the Jesus of history, that would be a good thing I had a Nazarene professor who had a great regard for some of the secular writers, particularly Albert Camus. He had arrived at the conclusion atheism is Christian civilization’s prodigal son, the rebellious runaway living in denial. He got that right. Because the behaviors all stem from the same mental structures, whether secular or religious, for both. What he could not experience at all, and at that time neither could I, was the thought there could be non-Western mental structures framing an altogether different reality. This is on account of the Western Ego, which in a way, can only see its-self in its ‘imprisment.’ This small book, a mere ‘novel’ of hard hitting social criticism through satire, sets out to explore framing that ‘other reality’ Each segment and character has a point. If you become caught up in either mirth or outrage at the more crude or rude assertions, you will miss those points. So, hate it, love it, but above all pay attention if you want to get it. Up front, here it what ‘getting

11 it’ is all about. People who cannot look at their behaviors, cannot let go of their behaviors. Psychologically ‘imprismed’ mentality, i.e. the Western Ego, cannot see anything beyond the mirror image self. That image must be broken for any individual, or even the World, to be healed This book is an experiment in juxtaposing idiocy with intelligence, callousness with sensitivity, the obscene with the sacred and chauvinism with feminine awareness. It is a twisted book, deliberately. What might have seemed sympathetic or even smart ideas are sometimes trashed by inverting roles. By the end, a thinking person should question not the intelligence of Humanity, but solely the intelligence of Western Civilization I am only good to the Indians. Whether their skins are White or Red (or Black or Yellow.) Why? The most recent genetic research has all sorts of politically correct Social Scientists freaking out at the idea it will be misconstrued to bear out White Supremacy in intelligence. Their own lack of intelligence is to fail recognizing there are different kinds of intelligence in Humans. These politically correct scientists measure by a yardstick that is culturally biased to Western Science which originated with Western (European) mentality or intelligence, a world-wide contagious and malevolent social phenomena Anyone can learn this mentality to one degree or another, but how useful is it? Perhaps other people’s genetics are predisposed to an intelligence the European cultures do not know how to measure. Or perhaps it is merely a matter of how our brains are organized differently in disparate cultures. Read and think about it

12 The Characters Stone Child is raised Indian in a White skin and subsequently immersed in a strict and stratified (hierarchal) charter school with a hidden administrative fundamentalist White Supremacist Christian agenda: posing as a liberal arts prep school. Because Stone Child has a White skin he is admitted to the school despite the school’s ‘fixed’ lottery admission which normally only allows a few select minority students, to conceal it’s Christian racist/fascist agenda. Discovering he is a “Pagan” child, Stone Child, a sensitive, kind and caring boy, is persecuted with covert but extreme hostility by the Christian staff at the school Grandpa and Natooauts are a Plains Ojibwa shaman and Blackfoot shaman respectively, both have tribal kin relationships to Napi Mephisto Spotted Buffalo is a German and the only non-native male Napi has ever known to achieve a fluent understanding of a universal shamanic concept called ‘the timing’ Napi Mephisto, father of Stone Child, is a Devil to the Whites at the school, but in fact is a mere man on an odyssey of personal evolution seeking to discover integrity in himself. He will trust people who easily betray him, including the woman he loves, and discovers how not to hate Pompositee Succubus is a brutal White racist woman who has risen in paternal fundamentalist Christian society by adopting a male ego to compete. She is the school principal Bozo is an example of a man who actually believes he is a good guy with credible motivations and yet has a remarkable American 'good old boy' chauvinism ingrained in his character, a trait he cannot see in himself. Bozo's character, because he is always drunk, plays in the presence of women those traits many American men profoundly manifest behind the backs of women... a typical hypocrisy and common social phenomena. Although Bozo actually believes he has views sympathetic to liberal causes, he unconsciously works to destroy those causes with his personality, attitudes and approach. This is because Bozo’s draw to the cause is to stroke his own ego, more so than to do the right thing Bozo is also a metaphor for the ‘progressives’ on the right and the left, people who do not realize the extent to which neo-con fascists play the game for keeps Ego Priapism is a man who exhibits every sort of chauvinist, misogynist behavior imaginable. He epitomizes evil manifest in Christian behaviors Christine is a sensitive, highly intelligent and physically beautiful teacher at the school who struggles to be free of depression stemming from child rape, is defeated by trauma, having contracted herpes from abduction and rape again as a young mother, sees her self esteem destroyed again and again, by men rejecting her because of her rape, herpes and a subsequent mastectomy. Finally, Christine is defeated once more by her own behaviors stemming from adopting aggressive male behavior to survive at the school and consequent instinctive retaliation against Napi who is in love with her

13

Christine, who does not know of the school administrations secret racist agenda, plays into the fascist’s hands when she deliberately flunks Napi’s son Stone Child, while taunting Napi he can do nothing about it. She does this because of her fear based anger at men and the school’s male teachers who exploit her fear when Napi has fallen in love with her. Christine, feeling sorry for herself, descends into insanity when she subsequently discovers she is actually loved by Napi, her rape and mastectomy would never have stood in the way of Napi loving Christine, the very sort of man she had finally hoped and dreamed of meeting. Or perhaps Christine is merely a cynical act The teachers Vance, Jack and Marcus are the best friends and protégés of Ego Priapism. These characters are part of the school’s fascist/racist agenda who exploit Christine’s fear at Ego Priapism’s inspiration, seeking to use Christine to destroy ‘the devil’ Napi and drive Stone Child out of the school. Vance and Marcus are retired CIA agents, Jack is a fundamentalist Catholic

14 The Plot Vance, with assistance from corrupt law enforcement, makes Napi a target of investigation at the school and in fact masterminds Christine’s abduction and rape with a view she will be manipulated to kill Napi, when her fear is exploited to suggest the ‘criminal’ Napi is bent on doing her and her child harm. Vance went on to personally attempt Napi’s murder Napi’s dilemma: How do you help law enforcement organizations and intelligence agencies with critical information they need, when elements of the same had been coming after you hard, on false pretenses, with a view to cover their own crimes you had been in (involuntary circumstance) process of uncovering? Who/how/when to trust? Christine mutates into a cynical cyborg, uncovered before the end of story as former CIA working together with corrupt undercover cops exploiting her tragedies while she is playing into trying to frame Napi for trumped up crimes even as Napi is blowing the lid off the real crimes by administration at the school A happy ending??? Those have eluded me. But Napi is supposed to have learned not to hate regardless of the outcome. That either rules him out going crazy or makes him insane in a world where hate is normal Perhaps Christine has been institutionalized by her ‘friends’ and Napi is unaware and eventually moves on to someday discover her fate But I cannot know, and the story does not say, because her fate is unknown to me in real life. The book has morphed from a fictionalized account of real life events, to straight-up non-fiction at the end

15 Original Sin Is A Hate Crime Napi Mephisto’s lectures at Johannes Gutenberg University at Mainz, Germany, were extremely popular with the students. His life in exile was interesting, brought about by fascist power structures in the USA setting out to assassinate him for being the devil incarnate. Numerous attempts to assassinate Napi had failed because people create reality and, without realizing, they get what they believe in, and if they believe in a devil incarnate, they will get exactly that. Napi began the day’s lesson with the following quote: “There may be a basis in the case of some individuals, as perhaps when a male prostitute uses a condom, where this can be a first step in the direction of a moralization, a first assumption of responsibility, on the way toward recovering an awareness that not everything is allowed and that one cannot do whatever one wants” -Joseph Ratzinger This very Joseph Ratzinger, also known as Pope Benedict, was a Hitler Youth Corp member, Third Reich Army deserter and former director of the Holy Inquisition, these days called the ‘Congregation for Doctrine in the Faith.’ What do we know about this greatest living misogynist, a man who heads the organization historically and presently responsible for more rapes of children and women than the rest of aggregate mankind? “In the 1970s, pedophilia was theorized as something fully in conformity with man and even with children” -Joseph Ratzinger A ‘theory’ which can only have come from the ‘Congregation on Doctrine in the Faith.’ As well, no responsible scientist limits approval of Catholic condom use to male prostitutes. One might surmise Ratzinger’s ‘male prostitutes’ includes homosexual predatory priests, depending on another culture’s interpretation of Catholicism. We also know following a viewing of the anti-Semite movie “Passion of the Christ” Ratzinger reversed the excommunication of and rehabilitated the fascist-catholic order ‘Pius X’ and this way brought fascist-misogynist Mel Gibson back into the church, yes, the same Mel Gibson who left threatening messages on his former girlfriends answering machine calling her a “pig in heat” and telling her she deserved to be “raped by a pack of niggers.” I would suppose the Pope had noticed Gibson has the kind of money necessary to carry out his misogynist and racist threats, not only make vastly popular right wing religious extremist movies. What had the ‘Passion of the Christ’ inspired other than Ratzinger’s comment he found the movie “moving” ? Would you believe war crimes ?? ““Jesus kill Mohammed!” Another head, another shot. Boom. “Jesus kill Mohammed!” Boom. In the distance, Humphrey heard the static of AK fire and the thud of Rocket Propelled Grenades. He saw a rolling rattle of light that looked like a firefight on wheels. “Each time I go into combat I get closer to God,” [extremist

16 Christian special forces officer] DeGiulio would later say. He thought ‘The Passion’ had been a sign that he would survive. The Bradley seemed to draw fire from every doorway. There couldn’t be that many insurgents in Samarra, Humphrey thought. Was this a city of terrorists? Humphrey heard Lieutenant DeGiulio reporting in from the Bradley’s cabin, opening up on all doorways that popped off a round, responding to rifle fire—each Iraqi household is allowed one gun—with 25mm shells powerful enough to smash straight through the front of a house and out the back wall” [from Harper’s Magazine article “Jesus Killed Mohammed, the crusade for a Christian military” by Jeff Sharlett] In the preceding incident, Ratzinger’s “moving” “Passion of the Christ” inspired an entire neighborhood to become insurgents against the Americans in Iraq in a matter of minutes, pretty heady propaganda, I’d say. Oh, and those Special Forces members of the American military’s “Officer Christian Fellowship” who managed the entire incident of flattening a city block with 25mm depleted uranium ammunition won’t ever be held responsible for war crimes committed in a military that shields epidemic rape of soldiers who happen to be women No differently, Ratzinger has not volunteered to the war crimes tribunal at the Hague the names of the Catholic priests across Rawanda who’d preached hate resulting in genocide by machete.. and so it would seem some things never change- going to today’s subject: “The women are right in the way not to bow to the rules of today’s world, because men made them without asking women.” –Montaigne Original Sin is a Hate Crime against women, which goes to the Roman Catholic Church, The Assemblies of God & Religious Right, et cetera, all fundamentalism across the spectrum of civilization. In effect, all male ego-centric and rigorously pursued religious philosophy that teaches women are dirty and inferior Men and women both, suffer these attitudes from childhood in the sense of a collective mental illness or, as social progenitors of violence which underlie negative phenomena This philosophical violence inculcates submission in women and, in males, underlie motivation of the rape of women generally, the rape of children of both sexes, the use of rape as a weapon of social terror in war and, ultimately the rape of our environment This story of Eve having been tempted and seduced Adam with the forbidden fruit, the subsequent instruction for man to “Subdue the Earth”, right to the idea that Jesus’ resisting temptation (especially as implies resisting sexual relations with women) kept him pure, is monotheistic or male ego-centric based hate The following quote from one of the early ‘church fathers’, Quintus Septimius Florens Tertullianus (Tertullian), shows these attitudes against women in the undisguised form: “Do you not know you are each an Eve? The sentence of God on this sex of yours lives in this age: the guilt must of necessity live too. You are the devil’s gateway: you

17 are the unsealer of that forbidden tree: you are the first deserter of the divine law: you are she who persuaded him whom the devil was not valiant enough to attack. You destroyed so easily God’s image, man. On account of your desert – that is death – even the Son of God had to die.” This was 1,700 years ago In 1448, not much more than 500 years ago, the Roman Catholic Church issued “Summa Desiderantes” (Pope Innocent VIII) which declared women submitted themselves to demons and became witches, which made men impotent. 500 years is not very long ago if you stop and think about it Today these attitudes persist, example given, the church refusing women the priesthood. This is precisely for the christian theological holding of Woman as responsible for Man being cursed and consequently Woman as the source of our world’s ills Children across the world in monotheism or Judeo-Christian cultures learn from the story of The Fall (Adam and Eve) that Man is cursed because Woman was in collusion with a snake. That women are the cause of ALL evil. That women are dirty, guilty, and the original source of our world’s problems Children are literal and impressionable beings. Teaching children women are filthy and the cause of our world’s illness is socially criminal. It is time to call this causal source of RAPE exactly what it is. A HATE CRIME. It is the greatest Hate Crime ever committed The Doctrine of Original Sin is a burden on Humanity, a deformed psychology which underlies; Child Abuse, Mental Illness, Domestic Violence, RAPE, the social costs of war, failures in education on social and environmental issues and religious ethnocentrism. Especially Religious Ethno-centrism. This is the socially malignant absurdity of inter-communal violence. The idea that because someone’s view of reality is different, that someone is inferior or less intelligent or less deserving Religious Ethno-centrism underlies much of our world’s hate crime, whether in small communities of intolerance, or wars of nationalism on a large scale This partners with the resource rape of our planet’s feminine nature (Mother Nature) for material wealth. In earlier times the spoils of war referred to not only the sack of cities but included the rape and enslavement of Women. In the modern arrangement, this is become the purview of the corporate stockholder who profit from military conflict, arms trafficking and the associated rape of women in our world’s conflicts. In this modern military driven attitude of wealth acquired through War, the psychological ease with which rape is committed by Man is readily apparent: In the environmental rape of our planet feeding the violence of our industrial world and its associated rape of women and children across civilizations The next should be a simple look at the related fable of Cain and Abel. The idea only Abel’s gift of Blood Sacrifice is suitable to God, Cain’s (feminine) gifts of fruits and grains grown from the Earth rejected by God. The subsequent image of the story’s Cain having murdered Abel is again Archetypal message of Cain or any man presenting the feminine offering of the gifts of Mother Earth being Sacred, is a threat

18 to monotheism or male hierarchy. Only Abel’s ‘proper’ blood letting sacrifice to God is the accepted and desirable normative behavior What are the children being taught? Through various means of evangelism, whether Catholic, Protestant or otherwise, these Archetype imprints inculcated in children throughout the world are responsible for our devastating violence and social consequence The logical progression would be to look at Mosaic Law underpinning monotheistic society. This is the source of prohibitions on Shamanism or, one should better say, the intrinsic fear modern male intelligence has of intuitive or female intelligence. What is the shamanic awareness the western monotheism so fears? Shamanic awareness does not draw the same clear line between dream and reality as in western culture or mentality. Or one could say, in the pre-western matriarchal Native America the mentality was organized for waking reality in the right hemisphere of the brain: opposite to western egoic thought structures organized in the left hemisphere. The result has been a reality invisible to western culture and the science of anthropology This shamanic system of thought was the result of matriarchal social organization, where all males had been educated by women to average age ten years before they were exiled to man’s society. All of the men were trained to think by and, to think like women. However different to the thought of women in the modern culture’s left hemispheric egoic structures This shamanic world was not a primarily rational or linear world however, it was a highly intelligent and civil world with a different grasp of our existence. It was a world where the highest law was Non-Interference, leading to a paradox to the western mind: Remarkably cohesive multiple valid realities functioning in a social rule where no one can know better than anyone else. The only method of being on the same page was to look at your surroundings and understand each of us can see the same things differently Reality was perceived as a kind of Lucid Dreaming, where all experience can be shaped, not through the manipulation of matter as in finite constructions, but rather a fluid perception in which all is interconnected and related energies which must be negotiated rather than exploited. For 40,000 years it worked. People did not overpopulate, aggression was more often ritual than real, our world’s environment remained stable As early as the 1920’s western scientists had noticed Native American languages described processes in nature that were easily adapted to describe the new phenomena of physics, Quantum Mechanics, concepts the western languages struggled with What did Shamanic culture long ago realize that the modern world is running afoul of? “In 1918 Christian missionary A. McG. Beede took Yale graduate Harry Boise to the Standing Rock Sioux and Turtle Mountain Chippewa reservations on separate

19 occasions, where Boise explained scientific ideas to tribal leaders. Beede wrote in his report that both groups immediately understood the concepts without difficulty, saying: “There is no difficulty in leading an old Teton Sioux Indian to understand the ’scientific attitude’ that the processes that give rise to phenomena may be more and more known by man and may be, to some extent, controlled by man, and that in this way the forces of nature may become a mainspring of progress in the individual and in the human race. The idea of atoms and electrons is easy and pleasing to an old Indian, and he grasps the idea of chemistry” [DeLoria] The tribal leaders responded to Boise’s western science postulations after consultations among their native peers: Rising Sun, Chippewa leader: ”The ’scientific view’ is inadequate to explain … how man is to find and know a road along which he wishes and chooses to make this said progress unless Manitoo by his spirit guides the mind of man, keeping human beings just and generous and hospitable.” Red Tomahawk, Sioux elder: ”The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right. It is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly … unless Woniya [Spirit] is with a man’s spirit for the light.” The natural feminine intelligence of these Native men, who were ethical titans compared to the typical modern man, is prohibited by Mosaic Law’s social strictures. Forbidding trafficking with spirits, and consigning necromancers to death, primitive examples given, have socially evolved to modern man dismissing female intelligence as superstition or hocus-pocus. In fact these are but primitive prohibitions on a high expression of female intelligence in a framework of natural quantum mechanics. These social superstitions lead to similar attitudes in the male egoic modern science and share underlying cause with past witch burnings and paranoia such as the Salem Witch Trials The Native men, on the other hand, trained from childhood by women in the prewestern female intelligence of Non-Interference, knew a world that most of us cannot see. A right brain feminine perception shamanic world. An awake lucid dreaming’s interconnected relationships to all things: knowing alignment with the great living clockwork of our existence expressed in a single awareness. We tend to think of this in the simplistic monotheism’s psychology as creation For the fact of it’s applied female intelligence, Native civilization, indeed Indigenous cultures world wide, have been and are being put to death through various social strictures which have now become the largely unconscious underpinning and motivations of Mosaic Law in western civilization. This ethnocide is no longer solely on account of the more overt church evangelism The Mosaic Law associated superstitions of the monotheistic male hierarchy has demonized women and female intelligence. This is clearly seen in the archetype stories taught to children and, in the subsequent incredible abuse our world’s women are subjected to throughout the modern male based hierarchal order

The Principal Pompositee Succubus lives imprismed in her mirror image of ego. A living malignant narcissism, her pride she sees in herself is the grand little school she administers in a mountain ‘bedroom’ community for the millionaires who have founded the institution to avoid putting the children of ‘the good families’ into the run down drug and crime infested public high school in the city below the mountains. This republican illuminati of the community has counted its many blessings in having found Pompositee Succubus, who only sees herself in her accomplishments, to shepherd the children of their multiple award winning educational institution through the severe social and mental constraints of ‘No Child Left Behind” Pompositee’s school has one non-White Hispanic, one Jew, a Buddhist exchange student, one half Black that is culturally White, one Gay, one Lesbian, no Muslims, no Native Americans and a large balance of White Christian students. The few surviving students from the White secular families either keep a low profile or seem to be quickly expelled. The larger surrounding community is a mixed demographic to which the school itself is completely out of proportion to, with people of color absent nearly altogether from not only the student body, but also staff, with one part time Black. This basketball coach without a teaching position, suffers the Chimpanzee pant hoots and baboon barks of his team from a wealthy White racist community as they wait for him on the bus he does not want to board. It is essentially a state chartered White segregated Christian school under cover of diversity or, one could say, a living, functioning civil rights violation Pompositee, a brutal woman and Christian fascist, is a male psychological hermaphrodite knowing no compassion. Her cruelty and personality at times would approach the ridiculous extreme of Bugs Bunny in drag, were it not for the extreme reality of her hate, pursued particularly against any unwanted student in the way of her vision of the supremacy of White Christian Eugenics. And any staff with demonstrable libertarian values or less than proper conservative expression is soon history Pompositee’s church, The Assemblies of God, is populated by rich Born Again conservative republicans, from the Northeast Heights in town, where the church is located, and from the millionaire mountain enclave above the city called Kopaaka, after the many dead Indians whose spirits have been disturbed by the mansions built upon the site of their once thriving community. Here upon the spirit lives of the very people their civilization has murdered, Pompositee’s school serves to keep the children ‘of the good families’ in a ‘safe for Christians’ environment Sharing coffee in informal setting with Kopaaka millionaire fascist’s wives, Pompositee Succubus recalled how she had repeatedly ordered her youngest, her only boy, to the Peach tree to harvest the branch she would beat him with. The boy, now in prison, was the incorrigible male child that no matter how Pompositee had tried, he simply could not be taught right from wrong. The boy would come in and begin crying even before he had to remove his pants, exposing bare buttocks and legs and bend over his bed. More strikes for that. The boy had to count the strikes of the branch against his bare legs, she aimed for the legs because his agony would be

21 greater, and if he could not muster the proper tone and cadence, the strike repeated, 12, 12, 12,,,, (would she ever strike to the promised number of twenty and it could end?) until the boy was a single unending dying shriek of agony at his well deserved torture, damn, he could learn not to sneak into the kitchen to eat between mealtimes! The several Kopaaka ladies concurred, it was scriptural, ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’ and there simply was no way of knowing God’s purpose and mysterious ways or intent when these properly disciplined children went wrong. Pompositee received knowing looks and firm support, when bringing ‘Good Christian’ disciplinary philosophy to ‘education’ Pompositee was “Old School.” Her education had been rote, in the structured environment that drills the children in literate memory. Spelling lists neat and 100% correct. Times tables memorized without hesitation or mistake by fourth grade, to 12 x 12. A single mistake in a written essay required the entire project be rewritten, spotlessly From age five, Pompositee discovered praise accompanied the accomplishments that attended the surrender of natural discovery in her childhood, only Pompositee did not realize she had missed her childhood. She only remembered that her father had sent his fist across the supper table and showered blood everywhere from a broken nose, when her older brother had been asked to “Say Grace” and had unwisely responded with a smirk and the word simply stated: “Grace” Punishment was not the smart alternative, and Pompositee, within this environment, was a survivor. What Pompositee did not grasp, could not ever grasp, on account of this upbringing, was the idea things could ever be any different for anybody else, any different at all than the perception she learned from her own experiences as a child This was because Pompositee had been sequestered throughout childhood. Not in a convent, that might have been an easier fate for her in the end, but in a community that did not tolerate ANY diversity of thinking and experience Pompositee was raised a fundamentalist Christian..

22 Rescuing Jesus From St Paul Napi Mephisto guest lectures at university in Germany, loved by the students, but hated by the administration based in the western culture’s male hierarchal orderIt occurs to me when: ignorant people criticizing other faiths cannot get their own faith right, it should be pointed out. So it is with the case of the Koran burning by a small mind and those even smaller minds who give hate speech wide coverage in media Moreover, were we in the west to look closely in a self-examination of the facts, particularly those of us in the USA, it would become readily apparent there is a double standard If we held the American extremist sects of Christianity to the same standards we put upon Islam, the Southern Poverty Law Center would have declared so called ‘mainstream’ groups, such as the ‘Assemblies of God’ to be hate groups, based on their promulgating “Muslims are the children of Satan” in ‘advanced Bible study’ programs attended by both John Ashcroft and Sarah Palin Ashcroft introduced the torture of Muslims to American jurisprudence and Palin is curiously quiet on the matter of Christian extremism and with good cause. Her credentials might suffer were the more moderate extremists [oxymoron, I know] to discover Palin had been blessed against witchcraft by a Kenyan bishop from a community where people, including numerous children are routinely murdered every year, following witch accusations by Palin’s fellow ‘charismatic’ Christians Perhaps it would be wiser to criticize our primary beliefs and let Islam produce its own critics in line with the teaching: “You hypocrite. Remove the log from your own eye, so you may see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye” –Jesus In the ‘Acts of the Apostles’, when the wind that is called spirit manifest in the miracle of Pentecost, there was no need for interpretations or interpreters, everyone understood the other’s language directly. These were known languages, however different, commonly spoken in communities. These people had experienced something very different from that which has been handed down to the modern Pentecostal from St Paul St Paul was never taught by Jesus and in fact never even met him. All of St Paul’s information concerning Jesus was 2nd hand at best, and anecdotal. St Paul was not present at Pentecost. Jesus disciples, almost to a man, refused to meet with St Paul, a man they resolutely despised and mistrusted. St Paul’s relationship to St Peter is highly questionable and Peter was the least reliable of Jesus disciples after Judas. Jesus was constantly annoyed with Peter according to the gospels and the idea Jesus would found his church on Peter were words put in Jesus mouth by people with a political agenda, after the fact of Jesus life:

23 “Eighty-two percent of the words ascribed to Jesus in the gospels were not actually spoken by him” according to the Jesus Seminar And relating to Paul specifically: “For Paul, the Christ was to be understood as a dying/rising lord, symbolized in baptism (buried with him, raised with him), of the type he knew from the hellenistic [Greek] mystery religions. In Paul’s theological scheme, Jesus the man played no essential role” -Robert W. Funk, Roy W. Hoover and the Jesus Seminar Think about it. “In Paul’s theological scheme, Jesus the man played no essential role.” That could also be stated ‘what ever Jesus had taught was irrelevant’ to Paul (if for no other reason than Jesus had never taught Paul, a man he never knew.) St Paul’s inventions concerning Jesus, adopted by the church and incorporated into the Bible have in fact largely supplanted the teachings of the authentic Jesus according to the scholars of the Jesus Seminar: “The church appears to smother the historical Jesus by superimposing this heavenly figure on him in the creed: Jesus is displaced by the Christ, as the so-called Apostle’s Creed makes evident” St Paul was a self-anointed Apostle, that is to say he took it upon himself to claim his membership among the disciples of Jesus. Paul NEVER KNEW JESUS. Paul could not know Jesus intention except to rely on remote accounts or the accounts of people Jesus himself found to be unreliable (Peter) The contrast is startling between the two. The mystic Jesus was a tolerant man. The Greek language and Roman citizen Paul was intolerant, rules obsessed, and misogynist, whereas Jesus was none of these and had great respect for women The teaching of Paul versus Jesus creates a contrast so great, it would require to be a ‘Christian’ .. 1) 2) Choose between one or the other or: A life in denial

Jesus had taught not to make a show of your religion, fasting, faith or prayer (“Do not be like the hypocrites”) but instead to express your faith modestly and communicate through prayer in private. Paul taught organized worship in public. And it is in this ‘public’ scene of Paul the entire Pentecostal teaching falls apart To reinvent Pentecost, Paul had to come up with ‘speaking in tongues’, and then Paul had to invent ‘interpreters’ for the otherwise ‘unknown’ languages. Sorry folks, but neither was the case at the original Pentecost at which Paul was not present. It did not even remotely happen that like that. And the people who primarily follow Paul’s teachings, do not remotely resemble anything close to the lived and taught example of Jesus

24 It is claimed that Paul, when traveling to Damascus to kill followers of Jesus, something he was keen to do, was blinded by a light identifying itself as Jesus. St Paul had written “Satan is the author of all lies” and “The Devil masquarades as the Angel of Light” This begs the question: who did Paul meet on the road to Damascus? It was not the Jesus who gave the Sermon on the Mount… because Jesus never came back and said ‘Paul was right and I was wrong’ Paul had said Jesus return was “imminent” -that is any day- not still waiting after 2,000 years, he got that wrong too It is pretty easy to see St Paul counterfeited the phenomena of Pentecost he could not duplicate More from the scholars of the Jesus Seminar: “The first step is to understand the diminished role the Gospel of John plays in the search for the Jesus of history. The two pictures painted by John and the synoptic [Matthew, Mark, Luke] gospels cannot both be historically accurate” “The Fellows of the Seminar were unable to find a single saying [in John] they could with certainty trace back to the historical Jesus” “The words attributed to Jesus in the Fourth Gospel.. ..are the creation of the evangelist for the most part..” “Words borrowed from the fund of common lore or the Greek scriptures are often put on the lips of Jesus” “The evangelists frequently attribute their own statements to Jesus” “We know that the evangelists not infrequently ascribed Christian words to Jesusthey made him talk like a Christian, when, in fact, he was only the precursor of the movement that was to take him as its cultic hero” “Jesus rarely makes pronouncements or speaks about himself in the first person. Jesus makes no claim to be the Anointed, the messiah” “Jesus taught that the last will be first and the first will be last. He admonished his followers to be servants of everyone. He urged humility as the cardinal virtue by both word and example. Given these terms, it is difficult to imagine Jesus making claims for himself-I am the son of God, I am the expected One, the Anointed-unless, of course, he thought that nothing he said applied to himself” Jesus was a great man, not a hypocrite. Those who follow his Sermon on the Mount live intelligent lives, contrasted to: everywhere you see people following the teaching of the liar Paul, the psycho-misogynist who’d introduced the worship of Jesus’ murder and the subsequent ritual cannibalism called communion, ideas Paul took

25 from animal sacrifice in Greek Paganism, consequently you see organized Christian religions murder in the name of love while pursuing narcissistic intolerance, hate, violence and/or destruction “The whole history of these books [the Gospels] is so defective and doubtful that it seems vain to attempt minute enquiry into it: and such tricks have been played with their text, and with the texts of other books relating to them, that we have a right, from that cause, to entertain much doubt what parts of them are genuine. In the New Testament there is internal evidence that parts of it have proceeded from an extraordinary man; and that other parts are of the fabric of very inferior minds. It is as easy to separate those parts, as to pick out diamonds from dunghills” -Thomas Jefferson

26 The Child “Grandpa, tell me a story! The nine year old drew his legs up to his chest, arms folded across just below the knees, and leaned against the side of the old native sun priest while feeing secure, equal. The old man smiled ever so softly at Stone Child, a rare young one raised as he had been, in the old ways. The Eagle, the old man’s name, enjoyed visiting the boy’s father as much for the chance to spend time with this young one, as for any ostensible reason for this frequent trip a few miles west of the reservation: whether to visit with Stone Child’s father concerning his considerable knowledge of the mysteries, gather sacred or medicinal herbs with him in this pristine wilderness location or just to say hello to one of his most valued friends and swap stories. The old man asked Stone Child “What is the season?” Stone Child did not hesitate “It is the ‘Moon of the Earth Spirits Determined Journey of Return.’” The old man was pleased. “So now, tell me which kind of story you are allowed to hear from me.” Stone Child thought for a moment and then stated “How Life Happens.” The old man began “Ok, one time it happened like this… “In the long ago, Man was at a great disadvantage to Woman. She could drop Man dead just by giving him a mean look.” Stone Child’s eyes went wide. “So things weren’t too good for us. And it wasn’t good for Woman either because she depends on Man, and Man was getting kind of scarce. So Woman gathered herself and discussed what could be done about Man’s stupid stuff, this is what had kept getting us dropped dead. So Woman had her discussion with herself and she figured some things out.. “First Woman had to look at Man as different. Because Man is only half Man.” Stone Child looked puzzled, something the old man noticed. “What makes Man different is his father ‘Sun.’ Woman has always been only Earth” the look of puzzlement began to go out of Stone Child’s face “and she always knew how to live here in the correct way. Now, if Man would discover this, there would be no more stupid stuff and Woman would stop giving Man the mean looks. So here is what Woman figured out for Man.” Stone Child listened intently to what followed. “The Sweat Lodge is the gift of the Holy Woman to Man. In the long ago when Man became the guest of the feminine on this planet that is a Sacred Woman, he was given the Sweat Lodge to cleanse his body because he has no natural cycle as a child of the Sun. Also the Sweat Lodge gave him the Woman’s calendar from the Sun’s sacred sister (or wife), the Moon, to observe the cycle of the seasons. The primary law most importantly related to this is to always remember that for a man to harm a woman is to violate the sacred life giving hospitality that is holy, we can only harm our human spirit this way… and that is why we, as men, are never to be abusive to women or nature, and because we live our lives that way, the women gift us with the love and respect that is due to this sacred service we are here to perform. “Our cycle of life is reflected in the sacred gifts we give to the holy relationship between the Sun and the Moon, it represents the responsible respect shown between brother and sister for the unmarried, and between husband and wife it is for those who love in that way. The yellow cloth is given to the southeast for the golden light that is

27 the innocence of youth, always to be treated with only kindness, the red cloth is given to the southwest for the holy life-giving maturity of the sacred women that bear us, these are the people we protect, the blue cloth is given to the northwest that prepares us to be received by the sacred night sky that takes us in holiness at our end, because we have lived right, and the white cloth given to the Northeast is the clean environment of the souls received by the ancestors because we lived our lives responsibly according to these sacred teachings. In the old times these gifts of cloth would have been the four colors of the sacred paints and they also represent the colors of Man and the Seasons. The Red and the Blue, separately taken together, also are the Earth and the Sky, Woman, Man, and Marriage. “The Earth, the Sun, the Moon and the Stars, also the other Planets, Comets and Meteors are the Gods in the sense of a metaphor that only states: ‘we are a part of everything that is, and everything that is, is embodied in us’… no differently than other animal forms, even the trees and the living stones are essentially people, no different than you or I, all are sacred expressions of the mystery of creation that manifests in everything, all reality is in some sense seen as a part of this dream of our existing. This dream is meant to be beautiful for us as the human people and we are to meant to live our lives in such a way that strives for a clean reality, to become all that is the best possible expression of the creation dreaming us: We are meant to manifest as a Beautiful People ”

28 Handcock U Bozo L’Dodo was past Valedictorian at Handcock University, the famed secular school where he earned this dubious distinction as much for his role as the school’s newspaper cartoonist more so than any academic achievement in the school’s Anthropology department A clarinet player in the ‘Fighting Chickens’ band that wore white loafers and attempted redemption with casual idiocy in it’s ‘anti’ marching attitude at sporting events, Bozo’s fame with student, staff and alumni alike was the cartoon he penned lampooning Socrates: “Men in Togas” Man in toga: “I am Socrates” Flying monkey: “I am a flying monkey” Man in toga under a tree to Socrates: “Sir, the wicked witch of the west has sent too many flying monkeys to attack us, the walls cannot hold them” Socrates: “No shit Sherlock, it is a wall, not a net” Flying Monkey: “The Humans are stupid, we can just fly over their Wall” Man in toga: “We are doomed, the flying monkeys will eat anything except feces!!” Socrates: “Brilliant! We are the philosophers, we can turn ourselves into poop!” Flying monkey: “All of the Humans have gone! All that is left is a lot of fecal matter!” Another flying monkey: “Let’s throw it!!!” Steaming pile of poop with flies buzzing around: “Oh shit” Bozo, who worshiped Archie Bunker for all of the wrong reasons, and suffered from a complex he did not understand relating to his face resembling Richard Nixon, went from Valedictorian to the State Bar, skipping law school because of the loophole that allowed the practice of law for anyone who could pass the exam. His ‘good old boy’ redneck chauvinist humor and accumulated brain damage from frat parties did not impede his ascension to the practice of law (nor had it impeded his Valedictorian status by acclaim on account of the administration’s fears of ensuing student riots) because his fame as the cartoonist of the ‘Fighting Chicken’ newspaper (and his striking facial resemblance to Richard Nixon) had also earned him the Handcock U forecast (also by acclaim) ‘Fighting Chicken most likely to become 43rd President of the United States’, which in fact waived his taking the Bar Exam altogether The presidential forecast was filled by Yale, with a preppie redneck, a West Texan,

29 but with Bozo’s Handcock U Cirriculum Vitae, nearly any door to opportunity was to be opened Bozo was fond of collecting Native American artifacts and in fact took his anthropology degree seriously, assailing Indian tribes in his career as an attorney on behalf of science in the numerous legal wars of repatriation over the bones and other items stolen from native burial grounds Bozo had been initially bothered by bad dreams from the numerous items of the dead he had dug up during his student internship, or sometimes pocketed for his personal collection in his own solo forays with his archaeological hobby, but was assured by his anthropological mentors this was a common phenomena and that after awhile in the field, for most archaeologists, the nightmares in fact went away And so Bozo, living this commonly adopted denial as had his mentors, stopped remembering his bad dreams. His life, rather, was to become the bad dream instead. This was because, as a Native necromancer by default, he did not realize he had to care for his stolen dead with ceremony Bozo did not understand, as none of his professors had understood either, the preColumbian principles of Quantum reality and memory association between objects, and the idea that once two particles are associated, they remain forever associated in the sense of memory in the Whiteman’s Quantum Mechanics laboratory experiments: which were never extrapolated beyond the setting of the Western Science lab, but in fact were principles interacting in everything in the world surrounding him Bozo completely missed (he might as well have added two and two to arrive at twenty-two) the point the Native world had been trying to tell the White world for 500 years, IT IS ALL RELATED!! This missed fact merely made Bozo equal to the innumerable other scientists of his culture without ears or eyes in any significant sense when compared to a Native thinker’s understanding of his surroundings This fact, taken together with Bozo’s ‘good old boy’ attitude towards women, in a physics world ruled by a native Quantum understanding of feminine principles, was to prove his undoing

30 A Native Mephistopheles Napi Mephisto inherited his surname from the Jesuits who knew his ancestor, did not like him, and assigned this shaman’s denigrating sobriquet to his progeny in perpetuity: when called upon by the government to create an official membership enrollment list as the several conquered tribes were reorganized into legal entities The Mephisto line then fell to the policy foisted upon Indians by the government that a minimum ¼ of his tribes established bloodline would be required to have membership and lacking that, the Mephisto’s were native blood of several tribes without ¼ blood of any, this native family was persistently persecuted or harassed and jailed by the Indian Police, for being Indians without membership on the reservation Banished by Native America, they settled in an area adjacent to, but off of the reservation. Now persistently persecuted for fact of being Indian off the reservation, they were still frequently arrested and jailed despite the fact there WAS no reservation that would take in the Mephistos’ Fate further assimilated each subsequent generation into the White blood surrounding them, and finally the Mephisto line had settled down to become what at least appeared to be White With this ancestral history behind him, Napi Mephisto grew up Indian, nonetheless. How could this happen? Habit. Napi, as his father and forefathers before him, was raised to be open to the mysteries of the natural world and it’s manifestations, to be sensitive, aware of the manifold possibilities of seeing the world, to be free and unhampered in one’s thinking, to be generous and kind in regard to others, to let everything have it’s own voice In effect, a perfect absurdity to the Whiteman. To Napi, accordingly, as well as to the many other now invisible Indians grown up in the surrounding forest with near identical backgrounds, his surrounding world of the Whites, which actually seemed to believe he was one of them, was actually beheld as absurd in turn Rather than open to the mysteries of the natural world surrounding them, these real Whites beat the shit of the environment, just like they beat their kids, desensitizing them, beat them for freethinking, were selfish as hell in regards to their children by banishing them from their presence to do ‘adult’ things and constantly made promises that were broken almost as quickly as stated, and by god as for the everything having it’s own voice thing, these people would cut off your head if you lifted it up to speak as quick as they were to smack a child’s fingers with a ruler In this off the reservation White world, it was the kids who were the Indians. And the amazing thing was the Whites not realizing what the kids know. Because the kids fear the adults, they conceal their world from the adults. That is exactly why the Shaman learned to conceal his world from the Christian. Fear of these peoples violence. And that had everything to do with the new dilemma in Napi Mephisto’s life. It was his own native raised kid, Stone Child

31 The Secret of The Black Door Why and how disaster surrounds the lives of everyone who projects the violence of ego onto a Black Door shaman: The Black Door refers to a mentality of parallel universe access via shamanic androgynous modality (access to both brains as fluent in reality, lucid dreaming would be example given to how westerners might more typically glimpse it from this side.) So what happens in the other universe is just as real, the Black Door shaman is just as real there as here, but in that reality, when justice is served, the laws of reality step away from compassion and give no quarter Napi, a high functioning shaman in the ancient lineage of the “Black Door”, and separately familiar with the Ghost Medewiwin knowledge imparted to him by ‘Grandpa’, had inherited several White students from Grandpa when Grandpa had migrated to the beyond Grandpa’s travel to the ‘Sand Hills’ (an old translation which reflected the historic Native/Anglo communication difficulties, actually the Sand Hills was meant to impart the idea of ‘The Great Infinity’) had left Napi stumped These male students inherited from Grandpa totally struggled with the concepts of Native reality, largely it seemed because they lacked fluency in any Native American language These languages were so functionally different, it would appear Grandpa had resorted to desperate means to bring the knowledge across the divide from the Native language place of no nouns, rather a place of process where no experience can be replicated from one moment to the next, to what seemed a hopelessly finite language of hard descriptions in material objectivity Before he had migrated, Grandpa had taught these students to pray to the most dangerous of all the native gods. The native god that delivers the hard lessons to the people who either do not pay attention to their own dangerous behaviors or, in this case it would appear to people who had no capacity to see how dangerous their behaviors are. And he had taught them to speak this gods name in the Summer ceremony of the Man’s purification bath, an act historically forbidden to any native speaker Napi had puzzled over this, when he’d discovered what Grandpa had been up to while teaching these Whites. Because, now Napi had inherited several of them, the ones willing to listen and wanting to go on with their learning Napi’s experience with this was not without a glimmer of hope, however. He had a student of his own that was able to make the native reality manifest and this man, Spotted Buffalo, did not speak a native language. He was bi-lingual however. He happened to be German and a White Indian Napi had been able to explain to Spotted Buffalo: The Black Door refers to something like the gate in ‘Star Gate 1’, if the Indians would have written something like science fiction, except in the old, now nearly extinct world of the native training

32 In the Oral Shamanic reality (the racially Red Indians are nearly all literate, western educated, and mentally White- these days, nothing like this) it was not fiction. Not fiction at all The gate to the realm of the gods is between the parallel universe of the mind, it is the purposely developed power of dreaming The greatest of the Black Doors would sometimes create reality from dream state: as reality on this side of the door, as in the corporeal illusion, and were hugely feared People did not dare to cross the gaze of these shamans for fear of having a careless and subsequently surely fatal thought. Napi recalled from his lessons: “The paradox of the Black Door to the westerner is: how the tremendous danger of psychically (or mentally) assaulting a Black Door had been born from the Black Door’s androgynous practice of kindness in a place of no fear… and the unspeakable involuntary consequence for any Black Door foe or any micro-cosmic or even a macro-cosmic world which arouses the greater cosmic realm’s wrath by forcefully polluting a Black Door’s kindness with the projected violence of ego… for the greater the consequence delivered to the westerner, the greater the fear the westerner’s engender in themselves- resulting in projecting greater violence still, only to see greater consequence yet again… to the point of witnessing their world destroyed around themselves before their own inevitable end… and the Black Door’s law of non-interference require he witness without succor the violence which can only finally consume those who will not abandon it “You must learn to live our law of non-interference to survive the collective disasters of the ‘Strangled People’ (a Black Door term for Western mentality)” Napi explained to Spotted Buffalo: The Rules for a Black Door practicing the Law of Non-Interference are: 1) I don’t know anything (No one can know what to expect) 2) Never lie to yourself 3) Practice invisibility 4) No fear 5) Paradox is in everything (There can be an exception to any rule) Each of these rules has a subset of teachings. When you have understood these initial ideas, we can move on to the more advanced teachings. But first you must learn the timing, the concept there is no such thing as an accident or coincidence, there is no such thing as right and wrong, there is only what works and what does not work.

33 If you align yourself in the timing, you are with it, you are in with what works. If you cannot align yourself with the timing, nothing works. Things only can go wrong. This is what the Whiteman’s civilization is discovering in a very big way. The farther you take your reality out of time’s alignment, things will go wrong for you in bigger and more spectacular ways. You have to stay aligned with time to know a sensible existence. The Law of Non-Interference practiced as approach to life will bring you into the Alignment

34 If The Left Are Sheep, The Right Are Fish Napi teaches United States Constitutional law at Johannes Gutenberg University If the Left are sheep, the Right are fish: How our Constitution’s foundational law is trashed by both parties I was, quite frankly, astounded when then Senator Obama voted to give the telecoms immunity from liability during his run for the presidency. Obama is supposedly a Constitutional law professor at the University of Chicago, a position he holds, if not actively, to this day. But life for me has been, as it has been for many of you, and should be for everyone who wishes to grow in their understanding of our national circumstance, an exercise in the death of naivety In my case, the naivety which had begun to die going to the above noted event, concerns the pure, concentrated and unmitigated gall that the votes of over fifty lawyers who happen to be senators, a certain famous constitutional law professor among them, could thumb their nose at any oath to uphold the constitution with a ‘yea’ voting in a law that has three constitutional violations on it’s face, because the law in question is an ‘ex post facto’, ‘legislative pardon’ that violates our citizens ‘right to petition for redress’ by denying ‘suit at equity’ Let me explain The telecoms played ball with criminals in the Bush administration by participating in what amounted to warrant-less searches and eves-dropping without court order, stealing and handing over peoples personal information in criminal acts Americans had been historically protected from by our constitution and pertinent laws. This opened the telecom corporations to both criminal penalties and civil liabilities. There were crimes committed which should have been prosecuted and people have a right to sue. The potential liability looked pretty big and the telecoms lobbied for immunity 1) ex post facto. Our constitution specifically prohibits Congress making any “ex post facto” law, as typically or historically applied that means a behavior cannot be criminalized after the fact and applied retroactively, or more broadly, new laws cannot be made governing an event that is in the past. In this 2nd case we have a valid constitutional claim prohibiting making a law excusing past criminal civil liberties violations against our citizens, violations which had created liabilities. What is required for the criminal aspect solely, is a PARDON 2) legislative pardon: Congress cannot give pardons to the individuals within the telecoms who’d signed off on and perpetrated the crimes, that is reserved by our constitution to the president and neither can the Congress or the President pardon corporations in any manner excusing civil liability, the corporations must be held accountable and seek any leniency based on possible mitigation factors from the courts, because [3 & 4 combine to make a constitutional principle] 3) the” right to petition for redress” is promised to every citizen who has been wronged and

35 4) “suit at equity”, that is, the courts existing to do what is right by the citizen, is the avenue provided by our constitution to fulfill the promise of every wronged citizen’s ‘right to petition for redress’ or it should be said there is no right of corporate or government impunity. Citizen’s petitions for remedies and compensation may not be preemptively denied fair hearing, in our courts of law by the Congress The oath to our constitution had been meant to prevent such patently wrong laws in the first instance. That the oath is become patently meaningless to the majority of trained lawyers who should know these things and make up the Congress, points squarely to the core of corrupt process usurping our rule of law Now, what I’d point out to my conservative friends regarding the Senator Obama vote in the case of the Congress patently and illegally extending immunity to the telecoms in violation of every ‘yea’ voting senator’s oath to uphold the constitution of these United States is: that farcical and patently criminal vote violating our most fundamental rights passed with a majority of Republican senators backing. The Democrats voting in favor of the law were a distinct minority. YOUR conservative people’s representatives are primarily responsible for this particular travesty of justice, which has the effect of trashing our Bill of Rights particularly, and other provisions of our constitution generally Get comfortable with that thought because now I am going to point to some more Republican chicanery undermining our foundational law that is going to hurt some more if you keep reading and are open and honest and willing to look at what has overcome us all, not at the hands of liberals or conservatives, but on account of all ourselves buying into political lies The American constitution, any and all neo-con ‘Liars for Jesus’ notwithstanding, is based on secular ethics, not Christian morality. There IS a difference and that difference is sometimes quite pronounced, as I will demonstrate is the case with the “don’t ask, don’t tell” law forbidding gays serving openly in our military As a heterosexual secular ethicist, I tolerate male homosexuals and actually get on quite well with lesbians. They very thought of sex with another man revolts me but that is largely beside the point. What I recognize, and what our founding law supports, is the idea a free society mostly cannot legislate morality. Time should have taught us this, as there have been numerous bigoted and unconstitutional laws in the history of our nation made by fundamentalists of one generation to the next.. but what it all boils down to is, it is our constitution’s demand that it is none of our business if a couple of guys practice fellatio, or lesbians cunnilingus, in the privacy of their home If they are good citizens in a secular sense, perform their civic duties responsibly and don’t push their private sexual life in peoples face, we have to respect they have a right to their lifestyle and a right to be seen affectionately in public together no differently to my own behaviors with a woman in my life. Do I copulate in public with my opposite sex partner? No. Do they perform sex acts in public with their same sex partner? No. No differently, if I can kiss my woman in public, so may they kiss their same sex partner in public. I don’t have to watch and neither do you.. and insofar as influencing children, there is no more a rude thing to do to a child than force them

36 into denial of our world’s realities, a form of lying, you do not raise aware citizens that way “Don’t ask, don’t tell” crosses our constitution’s demand that there be “equal protection” of all citizens before the law. A law that allows heterosexual expression of one’s sexual preference only, violates the rights of gays. It is quite clear and it is that simple Before I go into how President Obama and the Senate Republicans BOTH had subverted out rule of law and damaging our constitution with using the “don’t ask, don’t tell” as a political football, it is in order here to give a further short exam of the secular ethics our law is based upon, versus religious, or in the USA, largely Christian morality Our nation was founded by people with varying experiences at the hands of religion, with nearly all of those experiences negative. It was not only the persecuted religious minority by the religious majority which migrated to what became the USA, but also the political dissident and intellectual who left a country with officially sanctioned state religion used as a tool of repression, such as the Church of England, or the free or secular thinkers who abandoned Germany, France, Italy or Spain among many other nations where religious intolerance persecuted anyone who stepped out of the officially sanctioned lines of thinking. The result is what you see in our First Amendment, it is no accident that lumped together there, are freedom of expression, that protects the secular people particularly, and the freedom of people to practice ANY religion and very importantly, in the same paragraph religion is altogether forbidden in the affairs of state. This was the ‘original intent’ of our founders, again, any ‘Liars for Jesus’ notwithstanding Of course our founders realized we live in an imperfect world and what they attempted to do was in fact establish a libertarian society which would create an environment for elevated awareness and advancement of the future generations with a generous opportunity for our citizenry- given in our founding law. Thomas Jefferson looked at the New England Puritans as hopelessly backward people living out a primitive demonic fantasy, whereas John Adams had a revulsion similar to homophobia in relation to Benjamin Franklin’s libertine philosophies and lifestyle, examples given, but they and other founders all did one thing very well, they tolerated one another, setting aside differences to both: win the revolution and write our constitution intended to preserve the rights of one and all despite their differences. As a group, these men realized there is a sole avenue to any positive future and that avenue is tolerance. This is the driving purpose behind our having an established secular republic where religious morals are deliberately allowed no part and those recent Supreme Court Justices who best personified these secular principles of tolerance were Republicans, Justice Brennan and Justice Stevens Now, if the left and right both forget Jesus’ admonition not to throw stones, that is, when we have begun throwing our found(er)ing law through windows like rocks with notes attached, and that is where we are now as a political culture, with smears coming in the name of our constitution, particularly on the right because of “Liars for Jesus” rewriting American history, and stones thrown from the left because of a snotty disdain for any and all things conservative which had been smeared hopelessly

37 by association with the criminal Bush, no matter the fact there are yet many fine and honorable people on the right, all is in a fine mess. And with the people fighting like the brawl portrayed at the close of Mel Brooks film “Blazing Saddles”, money and it’s associated personalities in politics are having a field day while they run away with our republic Now, money in politics plays off conservative Christian morality against liberal ethics with “Don’t ask, don’t tell” and both sides on the part of the American people lose and money in politics wins Erstwhile constitutional law professor and pretender to commander-in-chief Obama just now had a court ruling in his pocket which flatly states “Don’t ask, don’t tell” is UNCONSTITUTIONAL. Now, if indeed Obama is commander-in-chief of our military, it is his undeniable duty to simply ORDER “Don’t ask, don’t tell” to be discontinued. But no, manipulative Chicago politicians don’t play the constitutional rules of the game straight, so he has his own Attorney General’s United States Department of Justice hold up the ruling with an appeal, while the senate neo-con Republicans threaten any attempt to repeal a patently unconstitutional “Don’t ask, don’t tell” law by the congress, an act that would made the court order moot This play motivated both left and right, rank and file, to fight and pour tremendous energy into hating each other over whether a soldier can get his blow job from a man rather than a woman, and when nobody is looking at that. I hope you all suddenly feel real bright over why real problems this country faces, never get solved, all the while money runs amok in politics But it is actually much, much more than that It so happens both George Sr and George W Bush have a very close and intimate friend of decades in a real dilemma over “don’t ask, don’t tell.” Obama’s Evangelical Secretary of Defense Robert Gates, a man epitomized in the warning President Eisenhower gave us about the “Military/Industrial Complex” and its power to corrupt our republic, had asked the Congress to repeal “don’t ask, don’t tell” in a move to buy time for his religious extremist generals belonging to the right wing “Officers Christian Fellowship.” The “Officer’s Christian Fellowship is behind the acts causing the U.S. military to be sued via the Military Religious Freedom Foundation by well over 20,000 active duty United States soldiers because the soldiers are being force fed extremist religious right hate propaganda by their superiors. These extremist officers literally believe “Muslims are the children of Satan” and are pushing the USA efforts in Afghanistan as a religious crusade in an army where recently soldiers who sought combat stress psychological counseling were instead sent to a chaplain who told them their problems would be solved if only they would become “born again in Jesus” and “kill Muslims for Christ.” Small wonder there is epidemic suicide in the United States military not to mention the noted salient facts making an ongoing lie of Obama’s claims the USA is repairing relations with the Islamic world Of course, in extremist Christian morality homosexuals are aberrant perverts deserving of nothing less than death according to primitive mosaic laws and now we will have a whole new class of persecution in our military-

38

Now, because the Congress repealed “don’t ask, don’t tell” while Obama’s Attorney General kept the case tied up in appeals, it is much easier for Robert Gates to sweep this related unconstitutional religious morals repression of gays by our extreme Christian generals and their religious extremist officer-minions under the rug, because it will fall under military justice structures and be much more difficult to bring justice into line with constitutional principle when gays are beaten or murdered with ‘friendly fire’ and lesbians beaten and raped with the tacit encouragement of the extreme homophobic “Officer’s Christian Fellowship” whose mission is a ‘Godly military’ in a crusade to “kill Muslims for Jesus Christ” in a military which already covers up rampant rape of its woman soldiers -going so far as the leadership at the Pentagon had ordered its top expert on sexual abuse not to testify before the Congress This repeal had been preferred by the close Bush family friend and evangelical Robert Gates because he knows it rendered the Federal Court case moot and everything begins again from scratch with enforcing the rights of soldiers in the military system where his generals can finesse outcomes, and Gates also knows that his generals flipping their middle fingers at a federal judge’s court order overturning ‘Don’t ask, don’t tell” is a real risk because federal judges in theory can take over the operations of entire departments or even branches of government with a “Consent Decree”, pointed at people who refuse to bow to the rule of law and honor courts ordering our institutions into line with constitutional principles. Accordingly, the repeal of ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ and attending loss of Federal Court jurisdiction is in actuality a closet victory for the neo-con leadership of the USA’s military Meanwhile Gates homophobic religious right support base in the senate played to their own homophobic religious right base at home which collectively would flip out over any vote throwing out an unconstitutional law or any other act to honor the constitutional rights of ‘fags’ and Gates escaped a real catch 22 And so it is: so long as politicians on the right have to pander to voters who follow mental whack jobs like Ann Coulter to keep the conservative vote in one block, while the left can’t shake off the legacy of Chicago style politics, any truly sane center ground allowing for real progress on issues that matter is pie-in-the-sky All the while, the progressive left had been backing the right thing to do by our constitution, and are the very people Obama’s Department of Justice had been fighting in the courts while holding up with appeal the Judge’s order throwing out ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ and otherwise no player involved except this one judge had honored our constitution, for all of our conservative voters swallowing the bait of their candidates oath to our constitution and professed love for our “Bill of Rights” There you have it- how in a most perverted sense the Republican senators play a supportive game in cahoots with Obama when it comes to their common cause of keeping the right and left fighting, while money runs amok buying our elections with political lies and in the course of things, trashes our constitution and national sanity

39 The Alpha Male of the Collective ego priapism |ˈēgōˈprīəәˌpizəәm | noun proper/formal or scientific [psychology] form of the vulgar slang ‘dick face’ ORIGIN: the American Southwest, descriptive of male neo-conservative High School teachers Ego Priapism studied and achieved his post graduate degree at the finest catholic university in the nation. Always ‘standing tall’, whether delivering his Philosophy Throughout History lectures or coaching his Model United Nations team at the state competitions or, especially when passive-aggressively denigrating his women associate teachers and keeping his female students in fear and humiliation, Ego incessantly counted his blessings in his innumerable ego-syntonic tales regaled upon all ears, willing and unwilling alike Ego fancied himself a superior liberal intellectual with his musings on Thoreau, his wide knowledge of government, political intercourse at the State Capital, and his ‘upright standing’ in the eyes of his community’s Christian hierarchical order But tonight Ego attended his monthly fraternal meeting of Antiquus Mysticusque Ordo Malleus Maleficarum with a troubled mind. A high officer in this most secret lineage of the Holy Inquistion, he was to address the always ongoing and thorny issue of libertine women raising freethinking children and the necessary means of suppressing this dangerous natural feminine curiosity of children in education Particularly troubling to him just now was a new teacher, Christine Wollstone, having struck up a beginning friendship with an apostate male, especially dangerous in this case, because this man showed the most odious and rare trait of respecting women without any evidence of emasculation Christine looked to be the epitome of the libertine woman, a free thinking slut of the order which had cursed mankind in the beginning, without boundary in thought or promiscuity. Priapism’s position as ‘Hammer Director’ required a plan putting Christine in her place of subjection to ‘proper’ men, discrediting her new friend Napi Mephisto, and putting an immediate stop to the free thinking of the child in Christine’s class who had drawn her attention to the child’s father, Mephisto One free thinking child can infect another child, anathema to God’s Eternal, Sublime, Theosophical And Paternal Order, GESTAPO, the secret organization’s front as a charter school foundation with a covert agenda dedicated to subjugated male psychological mono-sexualism in women for perpetuity, because all women must become males, but thankfully, seldom or rarely, alpha males. The child, Mephisto’s 14 year old son, had to be made to be seen as dirty because of his unbridled feminine awareness, his father painted as vile beyond belief and Christine trapped to participate in painting this portrait for public consumption. No small task The meeting had opened with the Socratic discourse “Have you stopped beating your girlfriend” with accompanying crude guffaws, in the modern schoolboy ritual that

40 always served to set the proper tone for the primary purpose of Antiquus Mysticusque Ordo Malleus Maleficarum, to serve God’s purpose with the unceasing pursuit of punishing women. Following this opening, a member of the neo-con Republican illuminati from the school’s governing council had delivered an advanced instruction in Pope Innocent VIII’s 1448 official statement, 'Summa Desiderantes' in which women had abandoned themselves to demons, and had consequently become witches that used magic to make men impotent Now it was Ego’s time for making his presentation: Gentlemen, we must, as you all are aware, each beginning term selectively reform and conform new students and staff. I hope you can understand both my meaning and the good intentions which will underlie any proposed new actions for this season We have the new Christine Wollstone, an obvious libertine slut, quite attractive and very unfortunately, also highly intelligent, and it is this latter which concerns me as much as combined with her wicked beauty, will be prone to seduce the minds of men to musings beyond the bounds of her God given duty to yield her sexual favors to the service of ‘proper’ men in simple humility A brutal rape has not sufficed to break this woman of inherent evil belief in Woman’s equality to her better Man, and God willing, we shall put the last necessary blow by the sacred Hammer to this determined Witch I would like to think I understand your concerns expressed to harmonize our work in the community with the needs to remain quietly within the school, but I believe in extraordinary circumstance this deep care for invisibility too conservative or, of an academic philosophy ill suited to the task at hand In the case of this certain bitch Wollstone, she has both expressed reprehensible admiration for a freethinking male pagan child raised beyond the pale of civilization, and has invited this bastard’s ill gotten father, the Shaman Napi Mephisto, into school community to sow sedition in the minds of our good Christian children with myths condemning our forefather’s God given task to create fear of the righteous in his primitive tribal children It is my responsibility, as I see it, to harmonize the needs of our ancient order to the facts of this circumstance. It is a struggle for any individual member to properly project the good of our cause in the present secular jurisprudence and its blind drive for the false integrity of the temporal- affording any woman the right to an individual path Our great struggle for the supremacy of God’s male ego, however the world unaware, must prevail in diverse application as necessary to achieve new understandings and modes of expression. Shall we discuss?

41 Mr Chan Napi recalls the Native American elders teaching ‘before the Christians arrived and our children destroyed by missionaries, we actually lived the teachings of Jesus.’ Looking back at his native life, he discovers this to be true Mr Chan was living homeless outside of West Glacier, Montana one summer in the 1990s. He had been trying to hitchhike East I had noticed for quite sometime and then one day I went looking for him. I found his camp off US Highway 2, about 25 yards (meters) or so and we had a talk Chan was either mildly retarded or slightly insane, his limited English made it difficult for me to tell. I’m guessing here his IQ was less than 90 but certainly he was more handicapped by social circumstance than anything else. He was wishing to hitch a ride to Portland and I thought he was disoriented as he was pointed East I brought Chan home because he agreed he would split my winter firewood for a train (Amtrack) ticket to get him to his desired destination We gave Chan an old YCC cabin to stay in, I had bought the cabin surplus and had it hauled to my property to refurbish as an art studio for my then wife. We let him shower and use our laundry. We fed him Mr Chan, about 50 years old, had a bad tooth infection, we took him to our dentist who examined him and told us that other than a major rework we could not afford, he could use antibiotics until he was able to find help through some social services where he was headed to. The dentist donated the exam and we bought Chan the antibiotics Chan split my wood for over three weeks by hand, everyday. He was slow because he did not have physical form. But he was steady and faithful. He did not shirk and I did not need to do anything more than show him how it was done As it came time to buy Chan his train ticket it was Portland, Maine!! (not Oregon), three times the price I had thought. I did not bat an eye, paid for the ticket and still gave him $300 pocket money I had said I would, on top of that The historical Jesus taught by example. He expected us to be the Good Samaritans and there are those times in our lives we are in a position to live the example. In that case it is a good thing and I thank Mr Chan for this story, the credit is his. Because he did as asked, kept his word and gave to me the opportunity to help and feel vindicated in giving a lifting hand. I would wish if ever my loved ones were in difficult circumstance, the same opportunity would be extended to them I look back at the time I was a homeless Vietnam Veteran and will always remember the waitress who took me in and fed me with her tips. I think there is something to Jesus saying ’As you sow, so shall you reap.’ It can be positive, it is a matter of how you invest. It came around for Mr Chan. He and I both have a waitress to thank for that. She was the original Good Samaritan in our case

42 The Journey To Manhood Stone Child had lost grandpa to the vagaries of age, but now was instructed by his uncle Na Too Auts, also a Priest of the Sun Before Stone Child’s birth, his father had returned from Vietnam and disappeared deep into Indian Country for years, returning to his paternal roots Subsequently, the boy had all his life known ‘Grandpa’, the old Native Priest that had also taught his father, and after Grandpa had died, Stone Child’s adoptive uncle, Na Too Auts, had taken over the boy’s Native education The boy was home schooled in the simplest basics, the alphabet, phonetic spelling with no rote memory or proper spelling drills, simple addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and basic fractions and percentages and other than this, the main focus, the real focus, was discovery in the natural world of the wilderness surrounding him, to age ten Always, he had been told that at this age, ten years, everything having to do with his education would change, and it would “get serious” Age ten had arrived, Grandpa had been gone for nearly a year, and Na Too Auts came to visit Stone Child Na too Auts spoke to Stone Child: Little brother, for the next four years you will be making the journey to Manhood. Today I will give to you one of the great mysteries of life you must understand to make this journey. But first you must tell me the rule attending the sacred teaching Stone Child began: Everything is ceremony, everything that you will show me. And none of it can be repeated outside of ceremony” Na Too Auts: Where is ceremony? Stone Child: Ceremony lives in the hearts and minds of the real people. It is everywhere Na Too Auts: Name the real people closest to you. Stone Child: For me, the Real People are the living Stones. They are the Aspen that surrounds the Stones. Real People are the grasses that cover the open space inside the circle of the aspen grove. It is the Raven who gathers herself on the meadow around the stone inside this aspen circle every fall. These are my real people Na Too Auts: And who are you? Stone Child: I am all of these Na Too Auts, quietly: Very good

43 Na Too Auts then asked Stone Child: Who is Niitssitapi? The boy replied: We are Niitssitapi Na Too Auts: Yes, this is true. And just what is the precise meaning of Niitssitapi? Stone Child: Human Dignity Again the Sun Priest quietly acknowledged the answer with a soft, matter of fact: Very good The theory of differentiation and the androgynous birth of consciousness in native America.. first ever translation to western terms, the creation of the Trickster, the native Mephisto, knowledge previously only observed by western science as simplistic anthropomorphisms Na Too Auts began the lesson: Thunder abducted the wife of the Half Being, Man, her name is Niitssitapi. Man was crying and the other beings noticed. They gathered among themselves and asked why is Man so pitiful? The sound of his weeping was very disturbing When Bear explained the cause of Man’s grief, everyone seemed to become afraid. There was no question Niitssitapi had to be rescued, because until she was returned to Man, everyone’s life was hanging in the balance. But who would go against Thunder? This question was put to another Half Being, Eagle, who knew the road to, and sometimes shared Thunder’s realm in the sky. These two had consulted together in the past Eagle said: It cannot be me, for I am Thunder’s relation. Let it be Raven who corrects my cousin’s wrong Raven knew the trail to Thunder’s realm as well, however she would not go there. But Raven stated to Eagle: I will do it. First you must pass along a message, from me to Thunder, you will be my Runner Eagle agreed This, I am allowed to do Raven then stated: I must go to my lodge, I will not be prepared until the afternoon of the fifth Man Day. Eagle, you must find me then, alone, on the prairie between the meeting place of the Old Man and Lakes Inside Rivers These Peoples then dispersed and Raven went home to make ceremony and paint a glyph on a bit of Aspen bark Sak Wo Ma Oui Aki Kwan stood alone on the prairie with her back to the rivers place of coming together. Eagle arrived at the appointed time and circled above, calling out five times ‘EeKiii’: Have you seen Raven?

44 The Woman Warrior, her Black, Black hair turned loose in the wind, called back to Eagle: Look at the feather tied upon the left side of my glory in this wind, for I AM Raven! Eagle then landed at the woman’s feet. He said: Your ceremony is strong. But I will not warn my cousin Thunder Raven then gave the painted glyph to Eagle with the warning: Do not look at this, it would destroy you. When you have delivered it to Thunder, quickly move to the side, before he can have the chance to clearly see it. That is all Eagle said nothing, but took off into the sky with the glyph grasped in his talons, his great wings working hard into the climbing circle, until a thermal updraft lifted him high, soaring to a speck and then finally, out of sight Soon, very soon after Eagle had gone out of view, a great Black Boiling Cloud began forming before Sak Wo Ma Oui Aki Kwan: ‘The Woman Who Stood Alone and Challenged the Enemy’ Thunder’s great rage of wind at this Woman was terrifying to behold, but Raven stood her ground against it. When he came into range, Thunder drew arrows from his quiver and shot them from his bow, the arrows strikes against the ground were deafening and each one missed! Raven, now a woman, now a bird, woman-bird, woman-bird, enraged Thunder as never before, Thunder repeatedly fired at a woman, but only to see his strikes evaded by a bird that hopped! Raven, facing Thunder, had hopped forward one hop, to the south, with each arrow Thunder had sent at her. As she hopped farther and farther away from the place where the rivers joined, she felt Ichs Stui approaching from behind her, and Thunder, whose rage was so great, did not notice Ichs Stui’s icy hand took the remaining arrows from Thunder’s quiver and the fight was over. Raven had won. Now they had to sit together, Sak Wo Ma Oui Aki Kwan, Ichs Stui, and Thunder, where the Old Man and Lakes Inside rivers meet, and make the Peace Terms of the peace Sak Wo Ma Oui Aki Kwan sat in the west, looking into the east, Ichs Stui sat in the north, looking into the south and Thunder sat in the east, looking into the west. The south stood open to this lodge they created with their positions The protocol called for Sak Wo Ma Oui Aki Kwan to speak, Thunder did not like it but he had no choice, for the Woman Warrior was victor. She first placed a tanned Elk skin bag on the prairie grass before Ichs Stui and then the Woman Warrior spoke to Thunder: I have brought this Ceremonial Stone, a gift to you from Raven handed through my Ceremony and Vision, those things preparing me for this fight, now, to

45 make this peace. It is in the shape of the Man Being when he is a Creator. This is to remind you, Thunder, Niitssitapi is forever free to make her own choice of her mate With these words, the Woman Warrior changed in her body and became pregnant. Her beauty softened. The anger went out of Thunder’s face. He felt compassion and a brother’s love for Niitssitapi as he gazed at her sitting across from him Now, as Niitssitapi, she continued: I give this Stone into the keeping of Ichs Stui, on your behalf, my half brother, he will keep it safely for you in his winter home Each Moon of the Willows Return, Ichs Stui will bring out this Stone and you will use it in ceremony, to commemorate this meeting, and my right to live in Human Dignity, and you will commemorate all of my future children’s right to live in Human Dignity, whether my Woman children or my Half Man Being children. Each Moon of the Ripened Cherries, Ichs Stui, whom you cannot stand against, will come and collect this Ceremonial Stone for safe keeping and I will thank Raven who will gather herself again and hop south to remind you Stone Child: What was the Glyph? Na Too Auts smiled and said: If you haven’t figured it out by then, you can ask me you are fourteen Niitssitapi, pregnant from her abduction and rape by Thunder, and her subsequent consensual relationship to Man with the gift of peace, gave birth to Ego and SelfAwareness, the twins Napi Au Pee Cee and Napi Na Too Auts. Each of the same mind and power, Napi Au Pee Cee spends eternity terrorizing the native world, whereas Napi Na Too Auts protects the Native World. Napi Na Too Auts is the First Man to live in Human Dignity, the first Man Half Being or child of the Light, whereas Napi Au Pee Cee is the Outcast, the Trickster, the Native American Fuck-Up God, the Divine Rapist, the evil Thunder was forced to abandon at the making of the peace. Napi Na Too Auts is everything a Native man should hope to become, Napi Au Pee Cee is everything a Native man is taught never to be and would be banished for becoming. Napi Na Too Auts is Beauty and Truth. Napi Au Pee Cee is the male Mono-Sexual Erection of the Ego which underlies all form of Rape, this was the glyph Raven had painted on the bit of Aspen bark, the symbolic truth which had put Thunder, the Logos, the Bachelor Mind, into blind fury

46 NO! Don’t Look! Napi sat at an outdoor table in a suburban yard, in town to visit his sister. She had left to run a quick errand, walking the few blocks to where the edge of the neighborhood met the main street and shops of the small city, a large town really, but a small city by the Rocky Mountain states standard. As Napi scanned the newspaper on a lazy Summer weekend morning, he was disturbed at the sound. The little girl’s screams are the kind that cry out the real pain He looked up from his reading and glanced around but could see nothing She’s still screaming, tortured wails that would melt any human beings heart The sound reminded him of a White family he knew growing up and how they practically tortured their kids. Napi looked up and down the street again, people pulling weeds, attending to gardening, someone pushing a stroller on the sidewalk, a couple of neighbors standing face to face visiting, others simply walking to, or from the shopping district.. Hundreds of surrounding ghosts don’t hear her agonizing screams, ghosts that imagine sipping coffee at sidewalk tables, gossiping ghosts, the screaming little girl passes through them in a different world that cannot be seen, cannot be heard Napi remembered Grandpa showing him the ghosts, any Indian could see them if his head is not locked up in a bottle, and Napi did not drink. But now he thought about the Indians he knew that DID drink “Hey, I really need a drink, cause I’m starten to git sick.” There was the one who had climbed a utility pole, talking to someone Napi could not see in broad daylight, Napi had talked him down before he got high as the electric wire, gave him two dollars and said “Get yourself a bottle.” The ones that lied, “I’ll buy food”, Napi had just laughed at them and walked on. Without wine, they see the ghosts and Napi knew it. The sound he was hearing made him think of what these drunks must be trying to escape, these boarding school Indians were haunted by the memories of their own beatings and screaming as children Unrelenting, eternal screams that echo off of the concrete canyon walls, the little girl. Napi guessed he really really didn’t get it, because he wasn’t a drunk, and he wasn’t drunk probably because he hadn’t been beaten, what Grandpa had meant: the MooniYas. Not real, not a human being, “Not the same as us” The screams had come into sight, the little girls agony stems from the vicious grip of the woman windigo that clutches her tiny wrist in a vise of pure agony, the sort of screams that would tear the heart of any father Grandpa gave Napi his first glimpse of the ghosts through ceremony, he could open holes and peer through the different dimensions, “Well, Napi, what do you think?” It was like sitting, facing a closed window, shift your vision to see yourself in the glass, shift again to see out. Indians are not trapped in linear time, they know the ancestors and the future people are right beside them, just a dimension away

47 Unrelenting screaming, the little girl tears weakly at the windigo’s crushing grip with her other hand, ghosts everwhere around, reading newspapers, standing at red lights, smiling, animated conversations unheard… cars waiting to turn the corner, the light had turned green. Or was it grey? At this point, listening, Napi thought perhaps he should find a bottle for himself .. but he knew he couldn’t, he kept Grandpa, fed his ghost. Napi took care of Grandpa, a Ghost Midewiwin. By now the noise was marching past on the sidewalk in front.. The woman windigo has a set face chisled in stone violence, a lip curled sneering dog jaw Napi recognized, it has been in many of the ghosts which surround him, a stoneset snarl to make any gargoyle freeze in terror. She hates the sound she is the reason for, she hates everyone, everything, especially the little girls screams of real agony, she hates the little girl, she hates herself, mostly, she just HATES After what seemed ten eternities, the ugly bitch that was torturing the kid had gone out of sight, and together with the terrible sounds, out of hearing. Napi thought what seemed a long time at what he had seen. His sister would be working during the week, it was summer break from school and Napi decided he would spend a few weeks in town to study people Napi eventually settled into a routine of morning coffee and croissant at an outdoor café a few blocks away, and had a really interesting several weeks observation of the White people and their parenting. Some of these people, not the majority, but by far too many to be an isolated incidence, controlled their little ones with pain using the grip on the child's hand or wrist. Indians did not do this. The intention was to take away the child's natural curiousity and make the kid essentially stand at attention, not allowed to have interest in the surroundings, thus not distracting the adult Some of the adults used a particularly cruel method of inter-twining the fingers with those of the child, using the superior strength to deliberately inflict pain, putting a crushing squeeze on the child’s fingers It was the older women, the grandmothers, that were more likely to practice this method

48 No Broken Promise Napi called Stone Child over and said “Stone Child, let’s take a few minutes, I’m asking for just a bit of your time, because we have to prepare for the change in your home schooling I have long told you would one day come” The boy sat beside his father with an attentive look Napi continued: Do you recall our Big Adventure? The boy’s expression was an immediate warm smile: Of course! Napi was referring to the time when Stone Child was three years of age and they had packed the VW camper van and taken off to see the world together. Each night after a day of travel and stops to see things, Napi would ask Stone Child if he was ready to go home or wanted another adventure. On each occasion the boy had opted for another days travel and sightseeing. Napi would bring out the road map, explain what was in reach the next day and ask Stone Child which direction to take Their course took them throughout the Pacific Northwest, across the Puget Sound on the ferry, to the Oregon Coast for walks on the deserted beach where the surf met the forest and to the Aquarium, to the Sea Lion Caves in California, and then back inland to the Modoc Caves of Captain Jack’s stronghold, over to Crater Lake, north again to Seattle to Pike Street Market, on the Ferry again to Whidbey Island, back to the Olympic National Park, off to the Columbia Gorge… until one evening Napi was still driving and Stone Child had fallen asleep and Napi drove most of the night Stone Child woke up in his bed at home: as though from a wonderful dream Napi said “I have given to you your childhood, I never took it away. I have never broken a promise to you. I did not make many promises, but when I had, I kept them. Your life to now has belonged to you, it has been a journey of discovery, whether on our big adventure and travels since, our stays in Indian Country or here in the forest at home. But I have told you many times this freedom would one day change Stone Child had a serious, but not unfriendly or disappointed look Napi then said: Tomorrow that freedom mostly goes away, and the little bit of study we have worked on is going to be the main thing we pay attention to for quite a long time Stone Child answered with a single word: Ok

49 Bozo’s Handcock U Speech A theory of proto-Anglo-Saxon chauvinism Bozo L’Dodo, past Valedictorian, was to deliver the introductory address for this year’s Handcock U commencement and his theme ‘The Inspired Republican Illuminati: Our Anglo-Saxon Heritage’ would secure his standing as the greatest of Handcock U satirists and past Valedictorians Bozo had chosen this topic to deflect the criticisms of his not having fulfilled the Handcock U forecast of becoming 43rd President of the United States, because everyone believed the nation would be better off if he had realized this ambition for the school Bozo was drunk, both in the composition and delivery of his masterwork address, as were the majority students who had been advised this would be the only state in which Bozo’s short oratory could be fully appreciated Handcock U’s president attended absolutely stoned on his wife’s Prozac, dreading the coming moment Bozo, teetering only slightly, after-all, he had been dead drunk for the near entirety of his life and was quite enabled of his condition, began: My beloved brethren (Bozo neglected to remember women were present, the cause of his alimony payments which he had never understood) Follows here a fanciful exam of the source of our American behaviors and American Republican closet morality- in a historical context of our British cousins and our own America’s Royal 'Curious George' Bush. (The school’s president groaned) Nearly every educated American of our generation had been psychologically nursed as a child on the wisdom of the stories about Curious George, a playful, innocent monkey, but lacking the necessary brains to innately recognize or extract himself from dangerous situations. (the school’s liberals had become interested already, going against experience and every instinct) Fortunately, or so it seemed at the time of our childhood, George was in the nominal charge of the ‘Man in the Yellow Hat’, a benevolent and wise person with great understanding of George’s nature… and yet for all of the Man in the Yellow Hat’s mis-approbation of George’s innate delinquent nature, it cannot be denied that these stories inculcated our thinking with one great flaw. Repeatedly, the Man in the Yellow Hat left George unattended- leading to multiple circumstance enraging the innocent surroundings of our very small world’s neighborhoods. In fact, George is a vandal and the Man in the Yellow Hat is his enabler. Today, we will have a look at the larger historical background of our own George and his Man in the Yellow Hat: Tony Blair Here in the USA we speak Yank. My own traceable English ancestry migrated from London to Virginia about 1640 and in the meantime that has mixed, I am sure, with

50 people declining Robespierre's invitation to a party, as well as the emptied jails and insane asylums of England, religious fanatics from the continent, Indians, Blacks, Mongols, and I am obviously 'mongrel.' But it wasn't only noble political refugees, criminals, lunatics and fanatics that were culled from the old world, but many Yeomen as well, mixing with the other populations, creating the curious mix of our state today. I suspect that my friends ‘down under’ have a somewhat similar social biography in the world of our Aussie cousins. (the Dean of Humanities began to feel sick at his stomach) Now what I suspect what we expatriates sometimes experience, though no fault of our own, is a deleterious genetic effect that Europe in general, and England in particular, had sought to eliminate from their 'families.' I carry this remarkably deleterious gene myself, and my research on the matter tentatively suggests it cannot be deleted because of perpetual hybridization in our American family, and there has been no pogrom for this gene's elimination. For research purposes I am naming the deleterious gene "Proto Anglo-Saxon Chauvinism." (the school’s Chancellor began to feel faint) Now again, we all had thought this PASC gene to be largely recessive in our American population, but I think we must consider now that it may manifest in heretofore un-noticed behavioral traits such as my own present subconscious urge, e.g., a sudden un-suppressed desire to make a comment such as this short Address. I invite the listener to consider my words taken for a particular hand gesture of continental origin. (Bozo held up his hand with a middle finger, men chuckle and women gasp in the audience) This gesture had been, once upon a time in Anglo-American relations, flung across the Atlantic, in both directions, and had been historically taken for 'rudery’ Now in our American population, we had thought the PASC gene (and source of this behavior) to be largely benign, excepting in the Republican party where it is concentrated to an unhealthy degree in this political pseudo nobility, the American Tories. Here, it is noticed in the American PASC Republicans who are ashamed of their 'doodles', normally which they only 'yank' in the dark, and claim they never 'yank' out of context. (Senator Larry Craig turns beet red and the Handcock U president puts his face in his hands) This bears a bit of explanation. Versed a bit in the American experience re our Anglo Saxon heritage and the 'divorce', there are historical examples of general insults, inevitably intended, with some exceptions, this shouldn't ever result in fisticuffs, but sometimes has between friends and brothers, with a bit of liberty and license. (the British interest in the audience perked up) In so far as these insults go, there was one delivered a couple of centuries and a score years ago in the vicinity of Yorktown, Virginia, a small ditty of British origin, composed by a campfire in the army of His Majesty, adopted by my countrymen, and that is 'Yankee Doodle.' I do believe that a close scrutiny of the song by the science of etymology must reveal 'yank e' doodle', the precise original term, is 18th century cockney or equivalent dialect, refering to the manipulation of a peculiar bodily parthence the terms 'yank' and 'yankee.' (Stunned silence in the largely American attendees, the few British sniggered)

51

Probably the context of the Americans adopting the sobriquet was made in the heat of fraternal dispute, proposed example given, 'and if we can whip you who named us that, what does that say about you?' (A single drunken whoop from a Texas Cowboy alumnus, the British chuckles were over) But we all went on to patch things up, and out of purely good and manly sportsmanship, us ‘Yanks’ kept the name and became endeared of it, despite the dangers of embarrassment to our progeny. (The British are suddenly interested again) There does seem to be a bit of national amnesia concerning the origin of the term, but who hasn't heard of the New York Yankees? In our modern idiom they would be called the Manhattan Masturbators (rousing cheers from this west coast school’s Oakland Athletics fan base, the British laughing out loud) At any rate, all of us hybridized American folk have had to learn to get along despite the presence of 'proto Anglo-Saxon chauvinism', and so it is just sort of lurking there, a characteristic of our 'family.' It must be my own mark of the gene that fails to see any serious impropriety in these remarks, but in fact I am disturbed by Tory and Republican behaviors, these progenitors of ‘Yankee’ behavior. (Bozo’s alumni classmates, on this cue, raise a ‘Students for a Democratic Society’ banner, the British delegation is split) Now, I am not privy to any modern research concerning the deleterious PASC gene in the old world and whether the efforts to eliminate it were entirely successful, and I am not familiar with the norms of behavior there, but I would caution my Royal Old World cousins not to breed too closely, if this is what was intimated when Mr Mitterand noted Maggie Thatcher had "the eyes of Caligula." (San Francisco’s British consular delegation walks out) Before I am subject to medieval justice and suffer the fate of Guy Fawkes, consider this bit of oratory in the tradition of Punch & Judy and might not intemperate replies from a particular quarter make the case that these beloved characters (whom Americans might well embrace) are expatriates as well. (The British having left, no one understood this line) Well, here, plainly stated, is an American polled by pundits, strongly suspecting Curious George Bush is an Anglophile (does he truly love Tony Blair?) and I cannot help but infer that the whole world has noticed and is prepared to conclude the Americans cannot help but ‘yank’ another’s ‘doodle’ when they should better keep their hands to themselves. (drunken male crowd roars, outraged women are leaving in droves) But consider first the primary party responsible for our ‘Yankee’ makeup, and please, only then consider our character. (drunk Log Cabin Republicans have been shouting Hallelujah Brother!!) And I beg my Anglo cousins, whether Proto Anglo Saxon Chauvinism survives in the Merry Old England or not, do bring Curious George Bush home to be Tony Blair’s retirement butler, and 'We the People' will happily keep our sobriquet 'Yank',

52

dubiously renewed in the eyes of your American cousin by our Commander in Chief in concert with your own, whom in tandum have, whilst whistling our glorious tune, Yanked their Doodles out of context worldwide! (Wild cheering, standing ovation) And thanks for NOTHING England!!” (Bozo ends in Richard Nixon’s famous pose while shouting the ‘Fighting Chicken’ sport slogan ‘Cock a Doodle Do!!’ pelvic thrusting with raised middle fingers rather than victory signs) Commencement did not proceed beyond Bozo’s speech because the ‘Fighting Chicken’ male student body rioted, erupted from the hall and took the occasion to tear down the school goal posts. Women who hadn’t the sense to leave earlier were raped. Handcock U’s president resigned and the school Chancellor committed suicide. Diplomas were put in the mail. Bozo’s fame grew..

53 Red Indian, White Indian Napi recalled the time in Vietnam he had wandered around the small mountain with Buddhist monuments and come upon a blind beggar whose face had been burned away by napalm. Without thinking, he took the only coin in his pocket, his lucky ‘I will see home again’ USA quarter, and dropped it into the tin cup and instantly regretted the thoughtless act when he heard the sound of joy coming from the face without nose, eyes or lips as the beggar fingered what must have indeed seemed like gold but in fact was worthless in the foreign war zone That act bothered Napi for years, the beggar would believe for the rest of his life (if his could be called a life) he had been cheated when the hard, heavy (compared to the zinc Vietnamese) coin was collected and nothing had come of it. Although Napi did survive to return to the USA, his lucky quarter did not help him survive to see home: which had become a living cartoon he no longer believed in Napi had tried work, in the sawmills of the pacific northwest, he had tried college, he had tried religion, but Napi had become a restless soul that could not shake the violence of man on man he had witnessed in the war. Everything was cynical, animated living cynicism had become his life experience. People were animated cartoons, institutions all became amoebas of hypocrisies with gelatinous tentacles that attempted to ensnare him. Napi gave up. He went to stay in the forest where he had grown up, to live in poverty One day a short but powerfully built Indian knocked on Napi’s door. Grandpa wanted to collect medicines from nature and Napi’s was a perfect location to park his car and search out the sacred healing plants. Napi was hospitable, he invited Grandpa in for coffee and they visited Like the other Indians Napi had met, Grandpa was open and honest and soon they were discussing everything imaginable, and not long after, Napi was learning about the traditional Indian medicines, because Napi and Grandpa had become friends Napi learned many things from simply observing and asking questions later on, such as the times Grandpa only marked certain plants locations and returned later on with a woman who would actually harvest the medicines. This was always the case when the root was to be used rather than the above the ground herb Grandpa explained the plants had male and female roles in nature and it was a matter of respect. If the plant was respected, it would surrender the healing qualities, but always in the case of the roots, the plants only responded to a woman who lived a clean life, a woman who had a certain mentality from living in the proper way. Only women could prepare these roots Napi did not question any explanation after an initial inquiry, he understood Grandpa always gave answers and explanations that eventually made sense as Napi saw larger pieces of the puzzle begin to fall into place over time Napi began to see everything is related, in the sense of relationships in Quantum Mechanics, as the Native principle underlying many things Grandpa had showed him

54

Once two particles are associated, they become forever associated, no matter if they are separated by a universe in time and space. It appeared this was an important principle in the pre-Columbian knowledge of native healing Grandpa was a ‘Ghost Medewiwin’ and explained how that worked in a way that seemed to relate to the alternate dimensions in String Theory But it was Grandpa’s further explanation of this, Man’s relationship to time, that made the most sense. This was uncharted territory in Western Science. Yet Grandpa explained it in such a way that the simple sensibility of what he was saying had to be credible. It explained so many things one witnessed in one’s surrounding experience, by simply observing the world, nature and people This is why the old Indian people kept trying to say archaeology was wrong, dangerous, that the Whiteman should stop digging things up. The teaching had returned in a circle to common object association in the sense of Quantum Mechanics particle association and the idea that everything has memory And then was Grandpa’s showing Napi how we can exist in Parallel Universe, the pre-Columbian Shaman’s state of power. And Grandpa did draw the pre-Columbian distinction, only he explained this in the context of ‘before the Whiteman’ Grandpa explained how the Whiteman’s schools had taken away this understanding from the native children. Grandpa, who was fluent in seven native languages, but had never been to school, said: First they taught the Indian kids they can only believe in God, but damn, they were mean, the Whiteman’s god is mean. They beat the Holy out of our kids, and beat their God into them. They burned the kids fingers with matches or put their hands on hot stoves and told them they would all burn forever if they did not go to church the rest of their lives. Those were the schools run by nuns They changed their minds when the state schools came along. Now science was their new god. But the kids still went to church because their parents were afraid of them getting burned. So science and god are arguing in the kids heads and lives, and dammit, they made the kids stupid like the Whiteman. That argument defines the Whiteman’s world and our kids have nearly all become White thinkers, they live with this argument in their heads and have become completely hopeless. Now they can’t see the most simple things. They can’t learn anything useful because of the argument. They grow up dumb as hell.. Napi had begun to apply ideas he had learned from years of immersion in the Native Language world to his surroundings as a matter of habit, because in his process of reverse assimilation he was thinking more and more like the old time Indians Napi was becoming a paradox of experience and normal expectation which in the real world would expect the old Native ways would become extinct together with the native language speakers, and yet here was Napi, discarding modern thought and worldview, abandoning civilized thinking and mentality for what civilized thinking

55 and mentality was in fact putting to death as a matter of unspoken habit: Indian ways Napi disavowed his knowledge of, interactions with, and what would be considered intelligence in the White world quite easily, because of his family’s biographical circumstance. White ways had never really become set deeply in his family which had preserved many social habits from its seeming now distant native ancestry, generation to generation. The liberal child-raising habits had stayed with these families. Napi could easily see this in retrospect The Native world he was becoming fluid in made so much more sense to Napi, an innate or natural sense, he began to look at the idea there were two kinds of Whites in his world Invisible Indians like himself and the children of other families in the forest who had been liberal raising their kids, and the White/Whites, the regimented, strict disciplinarians who raised the kids that had been thoughtless, violent assholes. The kids that tortured animals for entertainment. These were the kids that had been practically tortured by their parents and acted out in turn. The kids that had been beaten. The mean kids. The bullies. The Racist kids not allowed to play with the children of families who were the friends of Indians. There was a lot of that crap going on, growing up in proximity to the Blackfeet Indian Reservation Napi, who no longer believed in coincidence and accidents, began to look more closely at the comparative languages in his thinking. Native language where everything is a process in action, with very few noun-like words and a sort of pre-verb rather than an adverb, the pre-verb did not modify as much as it set up possibilities for the coming verb which would take a direction, move the process along depending on the choice of the verb, and it was the verb which carried the most important information in the absence of nouns Everything moved, flowed in this language, comparatively, the English seemed difficult, clumsy and static. Napi thought about the English verb ‘Spell’ and it’s modified noun ‘Spelling’ and how the kids were educated. Indian memory was phenomenal compared to White memory and the White education drilled the kids in Spelling. But ‘Spell’ could be a noun as well… if you ‘cast’ it with a verb. No accidents. A Spell was not called a Spell without reason. What would applying Native intelligence conclude in this case? It was simple. Literacy was some sort of magic spell cast on the Whites that locked up their heads in a very peculiar sort of thinking. It made everything linear, i.e. square or triangulated, in fact one could say ‘imprismed.’ This is how natural acumen and real memory was stolen from the children, by drilling them in the ‘Spelling’ from the earliest possible age In a world where everything is a circle by nature, these people could only draw circles from abstraction. The people with the spelling removed themselves from a huge part of reality. They locked themselves out of most expressions of reality as a matter of cultural habit. Napi had been stunned at the thought

56 Stone Child’s Secular Education His father had told Stone Child he would begin his education the next morning. When Stone Child was roused from his sleep at 6:AM and told to shower, he did so. Then Stone Child was told to run the property boundary with his soccer ball on his left foot only, five laps, he did that. After breakfast at 7:00, Napi brought out Webster’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of the English Language and the 800 page Washington Irving historical fiction ‘Astoria Goldsmith’ in the original 1857 edition and set them together on the kitchen table with a ruled notebook and pencils Napi told Stone Child: This is a great and wonderful book, but you will not understand most of it right away. Understanding what you read just now is not the point. The point is learning vocabulary. It has many, many short chapters. At the end of each chapter you must choose five words you did not know and look those words up in this dictionary. I want you to write what each of those five words mean in this notebook together with the chapter number. You will be doing this for two hours of each weekday morning except Mondays and Fridays, for the next few years. Monday mornings you will study with the monks at the Buddhist temple in town and in the afternoon you will be doing community service work I have arranged for you, caring for injured animals. I have found you a math tutor for Friday mornings. Friday afternoons you will have scientific field trips. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons, depending on the lesson plans I will devise, you will study either History, Civilization, Culture, and the Physical or the Social Sciences It had actually been Stone Child who had chosen Buddhism. Not long before Napi had said to Stone Child: I have raised you Indian, you have grown up in the wild with Grandpa explaining the many Indian understandings of our life. But now we must devise you a mask. Because Indians are never really accepted out there in the bigger world, people have always either been afraid of us, or cannot understand us. Anyway, we don’t even look like Indians if you had ever stopped and thought about it. So sometimes we need to be able to be something people are not afraid of, because the people beyond the forest are often afraid of what does not fit their ideas. So we have to make ourselves fit Napi had then explained to Stone Child the tenants of the major religions Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and… Buddhism. Stone Child, as Napi had expected, did not hesitate for a moment and stated: “I am Buddhist.” It was an unequivocal statement. But then Buddhism, as Napi’s friend and action anthropologist Karl had once stated, only differed from the Native Indian perception of our existence in the reincarnation ideas of the transmigration of the soul and the Buddhist prohibition for lay people the more general Indian practice of external meditation. Strip away some of the various superficial cultural influences of the societies in which they were immersed and the Blackfeet and Cheyenne tribes of Indians and a high form of Theravada Buddhism would practically see many of the principle ideas of our existence in identical terms Napi had then brought out a newspaper article about the new Buddhist temple in town and Stone Child had picked up the phone, called the temple abbot and made an appointment to meet. A few days later Napi had driven Stone Child to the temple to meet the abbot

57 The Courtship and Marriage of Bozo L’Dodo The paradox of ‘Jewels Misogyny’, the psychic clash between the hemispheres of the western culture’s divorced mind and resultant cognitive dissonance that comes of western women hating themselves, having become psychologically male for purpose of egalitarian competition in paternal civilization that historically and presently demands women are dirty and inferior… a ‘no wins ever for women’ culture… these women suffer from ‘acquired ego- priapism syndrome’ as a matter of survival Pompositee Succubus met her ‘umteenth’ husband, Bozo L’Dodo, while visiting the the Museum of the American Indian in New York Bozo, engaged in litigation over ancient bones, was attempting mediation by giving an informative presentation to this museum on the idea advances in phrenology had served to reveal the origins of race with the study of Kennewick Man’s skull. Bozo had a theory he wished to advance in Anthropology, that Kennewick Man was in fact White Pompositee was intrigued that phrenology had indicated Kennewick Man was a White Man, because she was a White Supremacist of the sort discovered in the wealthy Republicans of the Religious Right It would be a Marriage made in Hell By this time Bozo would marry anything that would look at him twice, as his reputation with truly intelligent women in intellectual circles was buried somewhere in the basement of Dante’s inferno. Bozo’s eternal frat party brain could not help his reputation with intelligent women, as he attempted to convince the Indians at the museum Kennewick Man in fact should pose no interest to them at all because he had the skull of a nine thousand year old Whiteman. Bozo’s argument should have sufficed: He’s a Whiteman, end of story. Phrenology has proved it. You Indians should leave it alone and go back to your wigwams or I’ll sue The Indians might have rolled their eyes, but were otherwise polite. Bozo accordingly believed he had made his point Pompositee liked Bozo’s simple and to the point approach. She asked Bozo out to lunch A month later they were married by an Elvis impersonator in Las Vegas. When they set up house and Bozo moved in his looted artifact collection of dead Indians together with Pompositee Succubus-L’Dodo, the dead Indians woke up and freaked out. Bozo’s skin crawled and he had no idea why. He only realized he was in sudden total fear and under the control of the woman he lived with and was unable to ever know himself as a man again Bozo, though seeming alive, had gone out of existence for all practical purposes. He never called his old frat friends. He did not party. He had his phone number changed and unlisted. He stopped going out of doors. Bozo had vanished

58 Pompositee was fine with all of it. She had a husband that was not leaving, and that made her socially respectable as a right wing Christian. That the marriage would not consummated did not bother her in the least. Because now she could advance her career. Pompositee only cared for herself Having been principal of a large public school she had run into the ground because she had no skills whatsoever when it came to either Human Relations or Administration, Pompositee had been offered the ultimate government reward for getting herself out of the way: a large severance or buyout package to ‘quietly resign for personal reasons’ and a letter of high recommendation to her next school if she would agree never to use the letter for future employ in that particular state’s public schools sector. It was the only way to get rid of an incompetent public servant belonging to the powerful teachers union Then opportunity knocked on Pompositee’s door The Kopaaka community’s right wing republican illuminati wished to take advantage of the new state charter law to establish an exclusive school for their children because the children of ‘the good families’ deserved better than the typical public schools. These people were not rich on account of having been overly generous and this reflected in their utilizing the state charter law to realize their long time dream of a private, White Christian school which had been cost prohibitive due to start up costs in capital outlay Using the State Charter to realize this dream could be an expeditious manner to avoid the small matter of not wanting to put their own millions out of pocket to realize this dream, a multiple felony approach. But this should not pose a problem, because the right wing Christian republican illuminati were never troubled with obeying laws that did not suit them: because they answered to a higher authority These were the biblical ‘New Jews’ of Saint Paul, a superior and perfected in God’s sight Race of Whites who did not answer to the secular authorities according to Saint Paul’s directive they were to be ‘in this world, but not of this world.’ They were obeying scripture by devising an illegal scheme to separate the children of ‘the good families’ from the secular White trash, Indians, non-White Hispanics and Blacks in the greater surrounds of their neighborhood The secular authorities would not be a problem because in this republican dominated area of the state, they controlled the secular authorities. A Republican State Senator resided in their community and the County Sheriff was an elected republican as well And so the ‘Ann Coulter School of Socratic Philosophy’ came into being. Now they could pass off many of the costs for starting the school on the unsuspecting state and other parties by acquiring largesse in the form of grants and waivers: and put the rest of the financial burden as much as possible on the surrounding community which need at best be represented with a handful of minority students By posing as a secular Socratic Philosophy inspired State Charter school, they would attract the brightest imaginable minds to teach their children. This would be augmented by the large pool of applicants who wanted out of the crime and drug

59 infested mainstream public schools, they would be able to pick and choose as they drained the best brains away from elsewhere These teachers could then be winnowed to a group that would support the closet Christian agenda over time, by keeping tight control and oversight of new staff and simply not renewing the contracts of those less than properly conservative teachers, or any teachers who were too inquisitive or less than submissive (especially any women that were less than submissive to men, that was scriptural) when they had reached the end of their probationary period. This would require some staff turnover for awhile, but would eventually bring together the proper Christian teaching cadre they sought. God’s chosen would rule Any unwanted staff, those that fell through the cracks of this vetting scheme, could be driven out by loading them with responsibilities out of proportion to the responsibilities assigned to the other staff which would breed both resentment and burnout. A premium would be placed on retaining White Hispanics, to give the look of racial diversity on paper, but not giving their color away Systematic psychological terror, unwarranted demotions through disciplinary letters placed in the teachers records and assigning work demands constituting harassment, would be employed towards any staff which crossed the line of absolute control by administration. This system had an optional element of extra-administrative applied stress: “Extraordinary Self-Determination” included psychotropic poisons with induced paranoia, if need be, murder This systematic terror was devised for the illuminati by a retired from the CIA killer who was invited to apply for and was granted a teaching position because of his stellar credentials as a retired consular official of the State Department. His was again an undercover role. Spy and report. And eventually, that role grew to being assigned to psychologically terrorizing and finally setting out to murder anyone who came too close to discovering the inner circle illuminati role in the multiple felonies ongoing at the school What in fact had been created was the Rabbit Warren from Watership Down, the Warren where nearly all the rabbits either lived in denial or otherwise dared not speak of the deadly snares set throughout their environment Pompositee was perfect to figurehead this environment. She could not screw up the administrative work, that was all taken care of for her. All she need do was patrol the halls, feel important and look smart to the community… and listen to the concerns of the parents of ‘the good families’ when she attended church It was church where Pompositee discovered which staff and students were cool and which staff and students were not. And ‘not’, was not tolerated. Like Buddhists and Blacks and dirty Mexicans, not to mention Indians. A ‘good Christian’ parent’s complaint to Pompositee at church made a ‘good Christian’ parent’s concerns go away like magic Pompositee was the perfect pseudo-male figurehead leader, a woman who behaved like a man and carried out a male monotheistic religion’s rules in the state sector as

60 though born to the role. The women at the school hated Pompositee who treated them like dirt. And hated themselves for subjecting themselves to her The men worked around her, stroking Pompositee’s male ego was the way to go, this nearly always worked for the men. No problem. Meanwhile, Bozo had stayed in his room

61 The Black Door Clan Napi had been invited to give a presentation to a group at the University in Bamberg My clan is the now extinct Black Door Clan. A clan becomes extinct when there is no longer a community sustaining their traditions. I witnessed this extinction in my lifetime with the dying out of the Blackfeet language and the associated Oral Histories. According to linguistics, a language become dead when the children no longer speak that language. I concur. In the case of the Blackfeet language, the last widely fluent generation I had met as a young man, the generation preceding my age group, is now gone or leaving this world. Almost none of today's children speak the language I am but a faint echo of the Black Door past but nonetheless I do know a few things The anthropologist would depict the ancient Black Door lineage as having painted their lodge (tipi) doors black but they could not tell you why. Nor would they know or be able to explain why people did not step in front of a Black Door in motion, that is a man of this clan who was traveling or moving with a purpose The Black Doors were 'High Practitioners' of the Native American "Law of NonInterference" The Rules for a Black Door practicing the Law of Non-Interference are: 1) No one can know what to expect 2) Never lie to yourself 3) Practice invisibility 4) No fear 5) Paradox is in everything The paradox of the Black Door: The tremendous danger of psychically assaulting a Black Door had been born from the Black Door's psychologically androgynous practice of a hyper-rational kindness in chaos (without fear)… and to plot against or otherwise (such as an act of ignorance) undermine the Black Door practice of kindness was to meet with unspeakable involuntary consequence: for any Black Door foe or any micro-cosmic world which arouses the greater cosmic realm's wrath by forcefully polluting a Black Door's kindness with the projected violence of ego Projecting the violence of ego underlie the Blackfoot proverb "Everyone knows the Whiteman is crazy" Children can see monsters. Black Doors could see monsters in one of the dimensions of the Spirit World. Here is vision of a cosmic monster you will meet in my essays, and in fact most people meet in everyday life in the western world, one of the monsters ruling western civilization:

'Napi opened a circle from top down and listened through the apature he had created, into a dark grotto with only torch light, and, where it seemed only men gathered. He heard a voice in monotone with the soft echos such as might be heard in the acoustically constructed cathedrals with a person talking to one's self and otherwise empty. Turning his head, ear away from the opening, so he could peer inside, Napi recognized the personality from the school, Ego Priapism, and was mesmerized at the sight of this monster, his lingam fully erect stemming from the place his nose should have been, scrotum encased testicles moving against his mouth as he spoke, having to pause to catch his breath while breathing through his mouth in a soft pant, with fecallike, elongated tongue pushing aside his balls, allowing air to pass the rectal lips, herpes sores showing, beginning where the pubic beard thinned at the base of his perpetually erect shaft, his eyes peering out from either side. Shifting his gaze, Napi subsequently beheld Priapism separate into the 'Trinity' of alpha male teachers: Vance, Jack and Marcus in their normal appearance… seated together at lunch in the school's 'staph' lounge' The above described monster, translated to western ideation, is a negative photographic portrait, or one could say a sort of mental kirlian image of an energy behavior or meme perpetrated in the western world's education, whether at home or in school, it is the unseen ego-self behaviors of a mono-sexual mentality in men, whether straight or gay This energy is seen by children and in order not to be frightened in western culture, because this monster is a cultural or ruling energy (meme) who is ever present in the child's surroundings, the child must learn denial of this aspect of reality Children don't like violence. Black Doors don't like violence and practiced protecting themselves against it and taught children how to make bad dreams go away In the modern western world ruled by monsters (memes or unrestrained mentalities) however, the children do not culturally learn effective immunities to negative energies and life itself has become the bad dream in which they must participate. In one way or another, too often these kids who were victims became the victimizer. Learning denial breeds the future monsters. This is the consequence or side effect of a cultural norm necessary to the creation and perpetration of ego Children have invisible friends. Most Indians had positive 'invisible friends' translated (into moralizing western concept) as 'Spirits.' But in the modern world, when denial is learned to avoid seeing the monsters, the child also loses the ability to access friendly, positive and protective, healing and loving energies These kids consequently do not possess an important avenue to safety, because they had learned denial based in fear. Therefore when the monster incarnates in a sense of human behaviors in their experience, the children easily become victims, they fall prey to threats and injuries of ego associated with guilt or shame. As their life journey becomes more and more a walled in world of self-reflections in glass, with the artificially inculcated ego through praise and punishment rather than, or more so than, adults modeling ethics which are not fear based, the kids learn to see themselves more and the reality surrounding them less

Children learn living in denial from adults. Just as Indians have become involuntarily assimilated to the ego of the Western world, forcefully educated out of their language and associated cultural concepts Mirrors Going to Rule 2 of the Black Door Law of Non-Interference, the greater the consequence delivered to the westerner for violating the rule ‘never lie to yourself’ (by living in denial) in relation to the violence of projecting ego, the greater the fear the westerners engender in themselves- resulting in projecting greater violence of ego still, only to see greater consequence yet again… to the point of witnessing their selfworld image as a collective consequence in destruction surrounding them The Black Door law of non-interference should require ‘practice invisibility’ (Rule 3) wherein a warrior witness without succor people suffering the violence of projected ego, which can only finally consume the world on behalf of those who will not abandon their violence, but then there ‘can be an exception to any rule’ (rule 5)

64 Napi Falls in Love Christine Wollstone studies a beautiful child in her literature class and discovers he is raised by a single father Napi, who looked a bit (rather a lot actually) like a bearded musician from the band ZZ Top, had promised Stone Child he would be allowed to attend school beginning 9th Grade and, of course, was true to his word. He had put in all of the proper paperwork necessary to apply for an opening in a small charter school with an accelerated program and it seemed it would be a good fit for the young man Pompositee Succubus had personally assured Napi the ‘Ann Coulter School of Socratic Philosophy’ was an excellent liberal arts college prep school and asked him to become involved per the school policy of close parent relationships to the school through volunteering. Napi was determined to do his best. He had meet with Stone Child’s teachers just prior to semester start and kept a printout of school events in his kitchen to remind himself of important dates. Napi accordingly attended a school ‘meet the staff’ social. It was strange. Napi was standing alone in the center of the crowd, each direction he had turned people had dissipated like vapors when he had approached. He knew what it was. His bearded appearance in casual clothes, his faded jeans and shirt made him Indian in a White crowd no differently than had he been actually Red skinned. The fuckers. Why did he always think that someday it could be different? But suddenly it WAS different. Out of the corner of his eye, Napi saw Christine Wollstone, with her back to him, draw a breath up from very deep and then Christine had turned 180 degrees and resolutely walked directly over to Napi and said hello. Man, was Napi grateful for that. Not only had Christine prevented Napi leaving Anglo society disillusioned for the thousandth time, but she was not arch or even condescending. Christine was Human, it was obvious. It began with just these few moments of small talk, you could see she was real and Napi was incredibly grateful for those few moments of humanity, only that, immensely grateful and nothing more. But Christine was beautiful, he could not help noticing as well. Shortly another parent with obviously important business interrupted and Napi excused Christine to her many responsibilities with a subtle head/eye gesture, very gracious in the native way, in a manner of speaking Napi had communicated: ‘I understand.’ Christine, very smart, acknowledged as though she were Indian herself. It was her return look of comprehension, acknowledgement and what seemed like gratitude for allowing a pushy and rude interruption (as though Napi did not exist) to become graceful. They separated and Napi went home so grateful. In his thoughts he thanked Christine and was relieved to know she was one of Stone Child’s teachers, he was certain now the boy would be ok. Napi had worried a LOT about the boy’s immersion into the White school A few weeks later Napi had dropped by the school running an errand, he had to catch up Stone Child’s immunization record to comply with having put the boy into a state chartered school and after having left the building and returning to his truck named “White Trash” (Indians name nearly everything they own;) he noticed Christine walking between buildings and Napi gave her a friendly wave. Christine did not hesitate. She turned and walked the 75 yards out of her way simply to say hello and visit for a few minutes. But she had to leave, it was during class, and Napi felt a bit conflicted. He hated to see her go. Man, Christine was friendly, unusually so

65 considering the social environment, also really smart and interesting… and beautiful. And interested? This last thought was pretty scary but really wonderful. Napi was rattled by the very idea. No way he told himself. Just look at the class of people she was working with. No way. But her persona had shone in the morning sun, a golden glow of light surrounded Christine that was magically striking. A natural Brunette, Napi actually believed for a time that she was blonde. A doubt lingered, Napi tried to put it away, but he could not. Christine herself had kept the thought alive in Napi’s thoughts. ‘Interested?’ A few days later Christine had emailed Napi: Napi, Hi! Stone Child said the funniest thing in class today! Be sure to ask him about how Indians predicted the weather when he gets home! Have a great day! Christine Napi knew Christine was teaching some history of Native America in her literature class and when it came to Indians knowing when to plant crops and the subject of season, weather and what not had come up… and the idea in some of the students thinking that these were primitive people without today’s technologies was being discussed when Stone Child had made the dry observation “Well, they did have a sort of primitive barometer.” Christine had asked “What was that?” Stone Child replied with a straight face: “Really old people.” Christine had broke up laughing. When Napi asked Stone Child what it was about and Stone Child had told him, Napi thought ‘Oh God’ Napi then, in a return mail had truthfully explained to Christine he experienced pretty bad pain from old military injuries and was always joking about his body being a barometer from frequent pain associated weather swings, he would only ever speak the straightforward truth to this woman as best he knew how, and could only hope that would both be seen for what it was and appreciated, in a culture where there did not seem to be a premium put on truth at all… perhaps truth was the message that would not put her off and he was encouraged by his further interactions with Christine as time passed Napi had taken the opportunity, having brought up his military experience, to tell Christine about his having become so disillusioned with society through war he had vanished into Indian country for many years and eventually built a career as an investigator in Human Rights, was self taught in International Human Rights Law and even had been professionally published in the field, a nearly unheard of accomplishment for a layman Christine had reciprocated with asking Napi if he would visit her classes and talk about his experiences with her students. Napi was estatic. Someone here in the off the reservation world was treating him as a human with a contribution to make. What a woman! Napi accordingly visited Christine’s three classes and made his presentations of an hour or so on three different days, so as to not get burned out and be fresh for each class, that was his stated intention to spread his presentations out over different

66 days, and to see Christine on three separate occasions, his unstated but equally important purpose. Napi was open and honest with the students about the Indian experience with Christianity and Anglo society, answered their questions about native ideas of morality and marriage among other things, as there had been no qualms expressed by Christine at all over material content of the unvarnished history presented, in fact Christine had made it clear she wanted it to be just this sort of learning experience for her students Napi told Christine direct he was concerned with making a good impression, he thought she might have taken that to mean with her students, but he really only meant with her. The talks had gone very well, Napi was totally inspired and shone… he did away with much Anglo historical revisionism relating to the native holocaust of the Boarding Schools and was totally in love with this truth committed, brave and beautiful woman by the time of the second presentation… and Christine by this time had already asked Napi if he would come along on a field trip next month to a Pueblo… ‘YES!!’ A Premonition Napi was feeling strange, his spirit felt disturbed and he was worried for Christine. He emailed her

Christine, Hi, I had not heard from you since class last week, I hope all is well. I'd appreciate at least knowing I have not gotten us into any trouble over my candid remarks concerning how Indian peoples were starved and beaten into christianity. Best Napi Christine had replied: Napi, Hi! No, there were no repercussions to you telling the truth about what happened. We have been watching the film "Into the West" and it brings to life even more the experiences you described. Today, the indian children were taken to the boarding schools. I see a sense of compassion and understanding with my students that I believe was started with your sharing. I'm glad that my students heard it from you before seeing it on the big screen in this movie. I'm thankful that I am able to share the truths about our history instead of what has been taught in the past. Things have been so white-washed that so many people do not really understand the true history of our nation and it's people. The movie was interesting because it brought to life what you spoke about in person. Most students were very moved and many said that they learned truths they never knew or forgot but never would again. -Christine

A few days later Christine had an ‘accident.’ It appeared fairly serious, bad concussion, days missed from school, migraines setting in. Napi was devastated and began earnest prayers in his Indian way for her healing, prayers he continued over the next couple of years as a matter of deepest respect and his great love for this woman. She had returned to work, thankfully, in time for the visit to the Pueblo. But something seemed different. Napi was determined to be patient, he had experienced serious concussion a long time ago and had been affected for many months, he knew this sort of event could be life changing, his had been. Christine, after her accident, had none the less made it clear she was looking forward to Napi’s coming along on the field trip. But weird things had begun happening to both Napi and Stone Child. In fact over time, over the next span of the next few years, it would appear Christine’s observation of no repercussions over Napi’s class presentations was very clearly mistaken. In a very, very big way. Neither would have believed what was to come, not Napi, not Christine

68 The Alignment with Time Napi explains to Spotted Buffalo how ego based fear mechanisms destroy reality Our Universe is a great living clockwork and we are meant to be working parts which move intelligently together with the other parts in the coordination of all things. How do we see this? If we use the idea of hand-eye coordination, and extrapolate this to mind-ear coordination, you will begin to have some idea. But it could also be mindeye coordination, it could be mind-smell coordination… that is where the Whiteman went wrong, he lost the mind as in minding what you are doing. So when you have thought of hand-eye coordination it was always a self centered intention that forgot the greater mind aspect, if this is lost, in some sense you are unconscious of what it is you are doing The birds are the messengers. So when I say mind-ear coordination, you need to listen. Listen to the timing. How do you do that? It is as simple as matching your thoughts to the sounds of the birds. If you are aligned, the sounds of the birds will not be cacophony, they will show you what will be sensible timing. The sound to the thought. When these match, you have good information. Thoughts you can depend on. But you cannot make this work as intention, it requires stepping out of ego. It is something that can only be observed So you must discover an affinity with some kind of bird that you can relate to. This is an ego killer when you think about this in terms of the birds can impart veracity to your thinking… and without this timing you are lost in your thinking. And I’m not talking about the lost in daydreaming, actually if you are able to get into daydreaming, you are more likely to discover timing I am rather pointing to the dangers of becoming lost in egotistical thought, this is the ‘imprisment’ of the White mind, the hall of mirrors, the mirror self of ego wanders here and never knows 90% of the intelligence we are a part of, because for ego to exist, it has to be seperated out from the timing. The ego is nothing more than a selfdeception, a trick, a trap. Ego was not meant to be, but is a possible side effect of the birth of self-awareness. Awareness, self-awareness and ego are all distinct things Awareness is the great expression of creation, what we know as the great mystery. Self-awareness is inclusive individuation that does not suffer fear, anger, embarrassment or shame. These are all things which can only exist in ego. Ego is isolated individuation, this is the source of fear, being alone. Ego is frustrated at its isolation, this is the source of anger. Embarrassment and shame are the children of anger and frustration, you could call these the children of the paradox of evil Evil can only exist in ego. In fact it could be said evil is nothing more than the violence of projecting ego. So this ‘imprisment’ of ego creates a damaging illusion of the holographic expression of our knowing self awareness. This is on account of becoming trapped in the illusion of creation, because we think we can die. And there is great fear in the idea of dying, this is the fear of being alone, but this fear stems from the paradox of the truth of the aloneness of the false image of ego, which is the only mortal being. The ego senses its mortality, because in fact the ego is not real

69 Self awareness is a Quantum inter-dimensional entity, it has place after place to retreat to, to reincorporate and re-express the memory of it’s incarnation. Ego is merely three dimensional and cannot see beyond corporeal imprisment. This takes away the sight of being within the alignment The ego is an artificial entity concocted up by the moronic behaviors of the adult Whitemen when raising the children, when they force the kids to be alone and isolated as a punishment… I don’t mean that only in a strict literal sense but as well in a greater social sense of excluding the children from the adult world. The children have to learn denial of 90% of their innate abilities in mental function and discover ego and live in ego as the primary expression of themselves to survive. This is what brings them into the Whiteman’s adult world. So they become isolated from the great intelligence to know a false and mortal inclusiveness, the source of all fear. And it is from this place of fear all violence, as we know the term violence in the Human social sense, springs. This is the projection of the Human ego. In fact, the acquiring of ego was diagnosed and treated as a disease by our medicine men To know shamanic awareness, that is the pre-Columbian intelligence in the Americas, is to become self aware without becoming trapped in ego. This is individuation aligned with the timing, the idea that we are inclusive, part and parcel of all that exists in the greater awareness. This goes to the heart of the law of non-interference because we do not tinker with the expression of the great living clockwork. Interfering creates a micro-cosmic out of sync world that centers around an ego-self entity and brings on negative experiences. We are not supposed to do that. And when we made that mistake, steps were taken to correct our mistake and get back into the alignment. This was the only time we knew fear, the times we made this mistake of interfering, because when we interfere we cause consequences We did have people who practiced evil, but this was the exception rather than the rule of the evil you see governing the Whiteman’s existence All shamanic death, a rarity, was revealed to people through the phenomena of fear, the fear of having made a mental mistake. If you knew someone had made a mistake which had been concealed rather than corrected, you could kill that person by exploiting their fear of that mistake. The consequence of knowing fear in the shamanic reality was the collapse of the immune, people wasted away and died. But the equal consequence of mistakenly exploiting fear was the same. So to be a sorcerer was a dangerous business. Because if you made a mistake attempting to exploit someones fear, it would quite naturally blow up in your face, it would be your consequence rather than their’s. So we were all taught this was unwise, not to participate in this sort of exploitation. But there is always the paradox in all things. Simple fear of knowing can kill. And so when fear of knowing meets a truth that must be expressed, the consequence is equally deadly. It is the equivalent of mental selfimmolation. The fear in the mind burns the body up. It was rare But this is a tragedy that happens everyday in White civilization and they are afraid to put their finger on the source, the simple fear. Fear fears fear. Their world is ruled by fear more and more each day, as they take their world farther and farther out of time’s alignment. Fear grows exponentially and body wasting diseases do too. Fear and disease are both out of control

70

So now they fear epidemics and they will see that too. Because, they do not understand causal principles of reality. This is a problem of being trapped in ego. They can’t see through to the simple. So the fear that only lives in ego kills the expression of the self and they can physically die on account of that. We have remedies to heal these people but the fear is so pervasive in these people they are afraid to try them. It is not much more than an issue of trust, but their fear is so pervasive and deep, we had to let go of telling them about anything because they historically killed us simply for offering to help They still would try to put us in jail for extrapolating some of our old healing practices, such as restarting or boosting adult immune systems with colostrums, simply on account of ego and fear. So it has been historically difficult to help these people, because they fear our ways and would prefer their fear to our healing. It’s difficult, they would rather keep their egos alive and die of fear than to be healed. How can you help that? This is a consequence of falling out of alignment. They call it “The fall from Grace.” But then they put it in the hands of Ego (capital E) to correct themselves, they put in God’s hands. But their idea of God is most often expressed as the violence of projecting the collective ego and fear in the Whiteman, and that isn’t going to help. What helps is the loss of ego. And knowing people in the alignment. That is the community you want to know. The gentle, kind and caring people

71 Misogyny Napi continues his lecture series, today on machismo observed in Spain, lectures for which he is hated by many of his fellow professors, while teaching at the male hierarchal ruled Johannes Gutenberg University at Mainz, Germany Many western cultural males are sublimely accomplished liars in their expression. One really good indicator (not foolproof) of the western male character you wish to assess, is to observe his woman’s expression I was walking and noticed a little kid, about 2 ½ years old, stopped to jump up and down from sheer joy of life. This was importune because the more important adult did not wish to be annoyed in the slightest in his desire to walk with some great dignity? His important appointment? He paused only long enough to grab his little boy by the arm and smack his butt, bringing hurt to a once joyful child’s expression and of course tears as the child was instructed to dutifully march after The man’s expression? Normal throughout. As though this were a regular guy you’d have no concern to meet and become acquainted. His wife? Silent, but with hurt and pained expression, the lines increasingly permanent from habit. Here, a superficial male dignity imposes a great indignity upon the human spirit She can say nothing or likely he beats her, behind closed door. She will not age gracefully, her beauty sacrificed to stress in a slavery to machismo, where a rule of law in too many case gives lip service to the rights of women, nothing more. Her son, the little boy, will be as his father before him, his mother capitulated and become the violence of the man who owns her, his future wife and daughters bond servants, mortgaged to violence I do notice some things. For four months there had been an attractive woman, a single mom, minding her own business, raising kids… nothing remarkable, there are many good looking women in Spain, and other than to notice her and other ‘cliff dwellers’, the unavoidable life observed from my rooftop had been mostly uneventful After four months, it seemed overnight, she turned into a harpy, a super-bitch and terrorist of her children. I puzzled on that for a couple of days, an event one cannot ignore, wondering why this sudden onslaught of what should not be dismissed as PMS (a favorite ploy of men), and the reason became manifest: there was now a man in her life. She had scored her Playgirl magazine model This follows on my observing another (neighboring) family in a circumstance of domestic violence, I decidedly noticed women who are beaten or otherwise abused or put down by their men, take it out on the kids, they terrorize their children in turn Following on the preceding, the kids already are acting out at an age that simply is amazing. The little girl already screaming out at every move her older brother makes, that was not noticed before, she is not yet old enough to talk much and he is not much older than that. This phenomena had been nearly immediate, the onset within a mere week or two

72 This must become the shadow boxing I have observed in the male teens, when walking the Rambla or the beach boardwalks in my vicinity, thinking to myself the beautiful young girl is going to be beaten by her boyfriend who is mock threatening her with his fist, by this age numbed to violence as a woman, she puts up with it passively, dismissively or in a very superficially annoyed way.. neither leaving nor decisively facing the boy down She will set out to be conquered as a social expectation, as I have observed in lovers a few years older, where in full public view, lying on the sand, she submits to a virtual rape with a weak appearance of resistance as he pins her down with his arms and body, in a simulated violence mocking the act of making love Children will, of course, more often than not come after, and the cycle must begin again… an ever growing phenomena One interesting thing to me, is these women, although they have a sort of awareness, they must, because of not only observable anger, but also guilt and shame (you can observe these as well), do not actually think about their circumstance in a frontal way. Otherwise they would not be caught in such a circumstance, or at least one must suspect this would be the case Follows the thought, why would it be any surprise these women fear men, or simply do not like them, the eye contact is not often friendly and often not friendly at all, most women are simply afraid to meet you with the eyes, yet it occurs to me the men many of these women must be acquainted with are as great a threat as any stranger. A Native American woman, Fee Tenkiller, observed: “A culture based on machismo is one of a complex matrix of social fears. The man fears not being manly enough, so he dominates the women in his life. The woman fears the violence of the man, while also fearing she is not adequate as a woman if she does not have a man. She learns to be manipulative, alternately playing passive and aggressive roles. He learns to threaten and lie. It all comes out in pain and libido through a dance of sound, fury, and violence real and pretended. The fears themselves are interweavings of anger and frustration taken out in rape masked as "love," hits and punishment masked as "order," and a general insanity masked as "normal." Like a row of falling dominos it doesn't stop with just one strike, but continues on through the family, through the neighborhood, from man to man, man to woman, child to child, and child to dog” I could not say it better and the juxtaposition is interesting There are cultural vestiges, only that, the young Native girls becoming interested in boys still initiate negotiations which can be face saving if there is not an interest.. a small piece of a world where women, primarily, had initiated relationships and encountered little fear of abuse coming at the hands of men… it did not often happen… and would not be tolerated for long because the people there did not pretend they could not see… and Native men were possessed of a courage and knowledge that is yet much misunderstood in the civilization of Columbus who represented a different class of men, men who were absolutely amazed at the respect accorded women in the ‘new world’

73

The church would have none of that… the Native kids were introduced to rampant abuse in the prisons called boarding schools, slave labored, starved, beaten and raped (the boys particularly) into Christians, and they all were taught women are dirty because they caused sin and and for that, women all should be virgins.. I simply don’t understand the church idea of women as dirty AND virgins.. perhaps temple virgins made more sense.. if virgin for virgin’s sake makes any sense at all.. boys whoring around in their youth does not seem to make men dirty... in so far as those things go.. some boys never grow up It was in Girona I saw the beautiful young woman with her dog on a leash, sitting on a bench waiting.. for what or who, I do not know.. her dog, a boxer, drooled on her shoe and drew a slap in the face and the epithet “Whore!” It would be amazing to me if it were the same woman, but after a few days, I was standing having a smoke while waiting for my bus adjacent to a train station The station had an upper level on supports with an elevator, both upper and lower level were open and visible, simply an elevated platform with the tracks above The beautiful young woman had her dog and her baggage and was preparing to take the elevator down, the dog, a boxer, stepped inside while the woman was distracted with her luggage and the elevator door closed on the boxer and the dog alone went down… while the woman above beat on the closed elevator door with her fists shouting VERY loudly: “WHORE!!” I suspect that is NOT her dog’s name The dog stepped out of the elevator at the bottom and turned and obediently waited.. the woman came down, grabbed the Boxer’s leash and except for a certain something in her posture, moved on as though nothing had happened The male role model surrounds me, unseen by the women who live under a cruelty as though they do not realize they are in some sense already dead On the Rambla during holidays, or on the beachfront, or any of the places you may wish to sit in the out of doors in a public place, kids with fireworks have no care for the old man or woman, they walk along and toss their small bombs indiscriminately as their parents look on, nothing matters except the child’s pleasure, a reflection of a fathers attitude.. and if you seem irritated the child has made his explosions nearly in your face, driving you away, the woman perhaps behaves a bit embarrassed but the man acts as though he were almighty god, glaring at and daring you to say something I was amazed to see a young man in his twenties go to great lengths to torture a sick pigeon.. the bird was obviously weak and desperate.. the young man jumped over the wall bordering the walkway on the beach and kicked sand at the bird with obvious pleasure, each time the sick bird flew a few feet and was chased down again and again to have sand kicked in its face

74 I thought it was the act of a depraved individual but I was wrong, it is the act of an entire culture, because on another day I was sitting in a park feeding the pigeons when the respectable looking family on a walk in my proximity saw their young male child, only the male, not the daughters, suddenly break away to kick sand in the face of the pigeons I was feeding, the dirt was kicked into my face as well, the child was so enabled of his behavior, there was no necessity whatsoever to notice his surrounding, to take stock, to consider the consequence of his actions, to care for the peace of his neighbor His mother was embarrassed, she whined to her son in the most helpless way, he should consider the consequence of his action, and although I clearly could hear her, it was as though she were a mute to the male child, he had no consideration for her voice, as though she were some ornament in his life destined only for attention when he desired a pleasure The father walked on as though he had a stick up his ass, saying nothing but giving that look of ‘I’ll kick your ass if you dare say anything to embarrass me’ and not a word was said by this man said to correct his male child for inflicting indignity on an old man, a stranger, reinforcing to his male child the woman’s appearance of unimportance and helplessness with her mute admonition On another day I was sitting by the water when a group of mentally disabled were brought to the beach by their woman care givers. The young retarded man was kicking water into the face of his sister as though she were a pigeon, the women caring for the group helplessly whining at him to stop, as unimportant to him as though they were the wives of the males preceding The beauty in spirit of the young retarded woman was injured, her joy at the beach and water destroyed, her tears and heartbreak unimportant, no one thought to comfort her or, more truthfully, no one of her women caregivers was willing to be embarrassed with an admission of their helplessness to prevent the hurt inflicted, by moving in public to comfort her, a chauvinist imposed restriction they must be, with their shame and embarrassment, only subconsciously aware of It was not far away at all, on another day on the beachfront walkway, sitting on a bench I witnessed a male child with an inner tube beating his sister. He was probably 12 years old, she was perhaps 14 The young male did not care to notice he nearly knocked an old woman passerby over, and forcing other people on their walks to detour his violence, he swung his large rubber doughnut in wide arcs with much force, his sister laughing bravely at the blows to her body When he managed a blow to her head and had knocked her off balance, she went down on the paving stones with legs spread wide and he not hesitate to deliver, with obvious satisfaction, the most forceful blow he could muster, directly to her vagina Her laughs and expression were now truly pained and I did (because of the mother studiously ignoring) what no passerby dared, I confronted the young man with his

75 behavior. When I approached, he actually seemed to expect praise at his demonstrations of male superiority When I told him he really was NOT a nice person, his face drew back in the most unimaginable and incredible expression of stunned stupidity as he said “Huh?” The sudden rise and sharply genuine quality of his sister’s laughter was a great reward I’ve seen what fear can do to these women… and it is not pretty. I saw a woman die of a murder and if she had broken free of fear’s grip over her survival instinct, perhaps myself or someone else could have helped her and she would be alive. But she is dead and there was nothing to be done for her because she refused to help herself and trust the goodwill of any one or two of the many people in her vicinity, myself included I was waiting on a train in Barcelona, I’d bought a paper and was reading while seated on a bench at the station. A young couple approached, well dressed fashionable people, she was clearly agitated, extremely… he seemed expressionless… she chose to sit next to me, he followed and sat by her on her other side and she did not like it, it was obvious. Her expression looked like a Van Gogh or El Greco ‘terror in the asylum’ painting if such a thing can be etched on the human face without a scream. I noticed and minded my own business because she was not overtly or vocally indicating distress. I only wondered at that moment, why people get themselves into and stay together in relationships that obviously are stressed to point of fear and loathing, it seemed I’d seen this many times observing people. I went back to my reading. She stood up and moved away probably 10 feet, he followed and they were standing there together for a what seemed like a few minutes, I had glanced up when she had moved away from me and was then reading again Like a small girls voice “eeeeeeeee” I looked up as she lurched away from him, she made eye contact with me as blood erupted from her nose and mouth and she took two or three small steps, collapsed and died, he’d stabbed her and his knife must have found her heart, it was that fast… I did not see the knife (it was in her back) but I didn’t think she lurched away from him and dropped dead like that from Ebola Virus, as there was no sound of a shot He then kneeled over her with his back partially blocking my view and from that moment acted as though he had only love for her with prayers… while I’m trying to ask a woman for the Spanish ‘emergency’ phone number (she was too freaked out to be helpful, someone else made the call), and two men who were also close to the event and had a different angle or view, reacted (after some moments hesitation) with trying to help a [clearly] dead woman with her now praying killer kneeling right there. Having no fluency in the local language, I stayed away deciding I would be more hindrance than help, at any rate, having been to war, it was pretty clear to me she was already dead and they would sort that fact soon enough An attempt at CPR was not a pleasing result (a graphic imagination will paint that picture) and quickly abandoned, a policeman arrived, determined she was indeed dead and the ‘man in prayer’ was directly and emphatically pointed out (extended arms with forefingers pointed straight to the bowed head inches away) to the policeman when the policeman asked (I presume, I did not understand the Catalan) the other two

76 men who’d also been close to the event and tried to assist the woman, who had killed her? Was her killer’s ego so important to possessing this trophy (her physical beauty) that he had felt compelled to kill her, because she obviously wanted away from him… and then he supposedly loves her when she is dead, with prayer? NO EMOTION, only this sanctimonious kneeling posture… this is something I just don’t get, I doubt I ever will Paramedics had now arrived and were waiting together with the policeman, it seemed as though, for the killer’s prayers to be finished, although in actuality they would have been waiting for a gurney to remove her body or, perhaps in some sense it was both, as my train arrived and it seemed there was nothing else to do but get on. I boarded the train with a couple of dozen horrified people and the scene was left behind as though we had left on a cinema spaceship. The story is surreal, as in the maxim ‘The truth is stranger than fiction’ Other than to say I am likely the last person this dying woman ever clearly saw, as she took her last steps while making eye contact with me and collapsed and died six feet away, my having been at that moment closer to her than anyone other than her killer What if she had said something, asked for help, said something like ‘get this man away from me’… put her shin swiftly to his crotch and run shouting ‘he is after me to kill me’, done ANYTHING to save herself from what in retrospect was clearly demonstrated in her expression of terror, she knew she was going to die, she knew this guy was there to kill her. WHY DID SHE DO NOTHING? Really, fear was her killer before the guy ever struck, she should have made some effort to survive, this woman who’d clearly trusted the wrong man and consequently could not trust a stranger or, one could say she could not trust herself to ask a stranger for help, literally, to save her own life So, my question for these women would be why live in fear? Why die of fear? Because of fear you have no life already. I am not the only one to notice. As a young man from Chile had volunteered to me: “In Spain, the men kill their women”

77 The Rez-Erection of Bozo Pompositee had a fatal accident while watering her petunias. When reaching up to a suspended planter, her evil black cat had scratched her ankle while attacking the loose strap on her sandal. Distracted, water spilled from the pitcher onto Pompositee’s face and she screamed “I’M MELTING!!” as she dissolved into a smoking puddle resembling blackened puke with the aroma of a fart that would raise the dead The Coroner’s report listed the cause of death as “spontaneous combustion attributed to pure bile” and Bozo was suddenly free and had his life and career back Upon returning to professional life, Bozo was appointed Solicitor General of the United States and argued the Obama ‘birth’ issue on behalf of the ‘hopey, changey’ administration, before the Supreme Court Barack Obama, ostensibly with dual birthplace, Kenya/Hawaii, is a natural born citizen because.. he is born of an American mother! With this preceding statement, Bozo had opened his argument before the Supreme Court on behalf of President Obama , versus a lawsuit brought by (sy)Phyllis Schafly Distinguished Justices, it is my distinct honor to address this august body in the matter of (sy)Phyllis versus B.O. Can any of the ‘boyz’ give “Natural Born” American citizenship to their kids? Mr Justice Scalia, you say you must interpret the law as it reads, literally as you see it in front you, it has taken on a life of it’s own regardless of our founders [legislative] intent. Soooo… we have to stick to “Natural” born because that is what the Constitution says… obviously that means you must have an American mother.. (Bozo thought ‘just wait, you fucker’) ! American born Taliban John Lindh could be president because he was born of an American mother. Charles Manson, no problem, and Henry VIII had Thomas a'Becket's bones disinterred and put him on trial, so there is precedent to bring Benedict Arnold's bones home from England and elect a dead treasonous president. Or dig up Andy Jackson.. Andy put his middle finger up this Supreme Courts and our constitution’s ass, a place where the sun never shines.. “John Marshall has said what the law is, now let him enforce it” quoting Andy Jackson on Native American rights Mr Justice Scalia, you learned from that… tit for tat… you stopped the recount in Florida and elected George Bush and put your middle finger up our constitution’s and all of America and the world’s ass.. speaking of where the sun never shines.. the place George was born to peer out from, pointing to un-natural birth But for George, all were “Natural born” of American mothers

78 'I-da-ho' born Sarah Palin's fellow Bible fascist, John McCain, was born in Panama of U.S. parents and McCain is a constitutionally legitimate “Natural Born American.” But surely only because he has an American mother.. speaking of Constitutional “Natural” birth.. and, Mr Justice Scalia, you state you must read the law literally.. never with legislative intent.. Going to religious right morality, a major problem could be ‘unnatural’ birth, example given would be 98% + of the Congressional membership who happen to be lawyers sucking off corporate PAC cocks, this the worst sort of ‘unnatural’ closet morality you can imagine, speaking of the unnatural cock-suckers who give birth to our patently unconstitutional laws.. nothing natural at all going on there.. an unnatural case of ‘rebirth’ would be Al Franken giving up comedy to suck off corporations.. there should have been a miss-carriage of justice somewhere there (Abort? Your religious right would have liked that in Franken’s case) So this must be the reason there are two token members of congress in the line of presidential succession, because we have to be certain congress can do something unconstitutional and unnatural, it is American political tradition, however first we go to the vice president Joe ‘Homo ‘Erect’us’ Biden… with his dentu-crème smile is first in line to replace the “Natural” born Obama. I like Joe’s sobriquet “Homo ‘Erect’us” because Joe is from Senator Larry ‘closet latrine homo’ Craig’s “Chamber”, just like Obama who has a news-conferenced youtube cock-sucker claiming Obama as his suckee, sooo, what is the problem with that? Why not keep suckee Obama? Larry Craig was not forced to resign. Why risk the warmonger military/industrial corporate PAC cocksucker ‘Homo ‘Erect’us’ Joe? They’re all ‘unnatural’ PAC cock-suckers Joe ‘Homo ‘Erect’us’ Biden is just another ‘unnatural’ venal corporate cock-sucker, he has taken piles of PAC money, never mind he wants Israel to blow up Iran who will in turn blow up our soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, soldiers who only wish our Congressional military/industrial corporate PAC cock-suckers did not keep them in perpetual deployments to war on behalf of Exxon/Mobil and Chevron… and the Congressional cock-suckers could just shut down the money paying for those wars [that would be constitutional] and maybe we could use some of the money saved to take in our homeless families to get them off the street.. but Congress is too preoccupied with unnatural sucking bankers and military/industrial PAC cocks to do that Joe needs to get the ‘erect’ out of his ‘homo’ [to become sapien] but behavior modifications fail with rapists and pedophiles and likely primitive-warmonger-venalcorporate-PAC-cock-suckers as well, we all don’t want ‘Dentu-Crème smiles Joe to be president Second in line is Nancy ‘AEPS’ Pelosi [Acquired Ego Priapism Syndrome, AEPS pronounced apes, as in ‘apes’ cowardly male political behaviors] other than PACS it doesn’t matter whose cocks she’s sucked because Pelosi is a woman, going to Republican Congressional closet morality, no unnatural Senator Larry ‘latrine homo’ Craig problem there.. oh, but wait, Nancy was on her knees for the prince of pedophile priests who instructed her she must be faithful to the church doctrine in her

79 government duties, an instruction to commit treason against our secular rule of law, rather she’d had the courage to tell him to clear his ranks of pedophile cock-suckers and let the priests marry instead… nothing “natural” going on there, we won’t want her for president Number three in line is a 90+ year old naturally honorable man who likely would not hesitate to clear out ALL the unnatural corporate cock-suckers at the Whitehouse… and he likely wouldn’t last as long as John Paul I before he was poisoned, speaking of Borgias and unnatural poisoning cock-suckers… Our CIA (Curia In America) would be certain that happened… CAN’T have him for president… Number four in line would be the cock-sucker Lewinsky’s cuckholdette Hillary, whose mind-numbing naeivety concerning ‘unnatural’ born cock-suckers continues to only astound. Hillary who believed ‘BJ’ (Bill Jefferson) did not whip his cock out at the White House for any unnatural other until Monica paraded her cock-sucker stained dress on tv for the entire world Now, speaking of cuckholded, Hillary employs Condoleezza’s former hatchet man as a top advisor on Iran, the “courtly” Under-Secretary of State William ‘my last name says all you need to know about me’ Burns and Nicolas Sarkozy had said Jean Marie LePen is a nice man to talk to: Sarkozy was comparing to what Netenyahu was saying that about his favorite West Bank settler and fascist foreign minister Lieberman… a ‘nice man’… no doubt Josef Goebbels was a “courtly” man too… I think that was Sarkozy’s point, so we won’t want Hillary replacing Obama simply for the sake of a first woman president proving a blonde joke’s validity Number five in line to the presidency is Wall Street’s favorite cock-sucker, Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, Timothy met privately with Swiss President Hans Merz to suck cock, so Hans would promise Switzerland’s seizure of the records of 52,000 wealthy American tax cheat cock-suckers… rather than give up his Wall Street cocksucker buddies’ secret accounts to an American court. We surely don’t want that unnatural cock-sucker for president Number six in line for President of the USA would be one very mean cock-sucker, Defense Secretary Robert ‘the joker’s smile’ Gates, a religious extremist who has assiduously protected treasonous behaviors by our rabid religious right generals in his refusal to root out the closet cocksucker bible fascists cramming fundamentalism down our soldiers throats against specific language and court decisions in our constitution and legal history… a close personal friend of the now established worldclass-mega-cock-sucker George Bush… and long time associate of the Darth Vader of all cock-suckers, Dick Cheney, Gates likely wants to be president for Jesus [who’d want nothing to do with ANY of these unnatural cock-suckers] A former CIA director only one staged disaster away from knocking off all the preceding cock-suckers. But “Born again” is not natural birth! You have to read the law precisely as it is stated! Bible fascists cannot be president! It would be ‘unconstitutional’ Mr Justice Scalia. We truly cannot have Gates for president Number seven in line to the presidency is my fine lawyer opponent across the room, corporate law cock-sucker Attorney General Eric ‘the banana’ Holder, former Chiquita Brands top gun, Chiquita Brands are the cock-suckers who in the past

80 arranged for multiple CIA coups and juntas in Latin America so we all can suck banana cock… that banana is coming home to roost in the form of drug lords and home invasions in your neighborhood… oh yeah, ‘the banana’ cock-sucker is also sitting on and concealing multiple un-prosecuted Bush crimes, we don’t want him for president Number eight in line is Secretary of the Interior and boss of the Bureau of Indian Affairs… just ask the Indians what their lives are like at the hands of those cocksuckers… every city council turned into a corrupt tribal council… ohhh… no doubt number six Gates would ‘LOVE’ the BIA cock-suckers… the BIA is the only American institution as corrupt as the CIA, all the urban blacks could be sealed off in ‘wartime’ ghettos… Indian reservations? Your block? Apartheid? Prairie niggers? Niggers? Likely small difference to the BIA and we don’t want that And it just goes on from there, the many unnatural corporate PAC cock-suckers giving birth to unconstitutional and unnatural law in line to be your president… next up would be Secretary of Agriculture Secretary of Commerce Secretary of Labor Secretary of Health and Human Services Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Secretary of Transportation Secretary of Energy Secretary of Education Secretary of Veterans Affairs Secretary of Homeland Security This is all a LONG ways from the ONE honest cock-sucker who is up front about the fact he actually IS a cock-sucker, Barney Frank and would most certainly make a better president that any of the preceding on this list of cock-suckers Soooo… would it really make sense to force out Obama? The logical conclusion would be it does not matter where Obama was born, he is not and insofar as I know, never has been in a legal position requiring he be “Naturalized” as an American citizen. He was born to an American mother, he was born with American citizenship and that citizenship has never been in a position to be surrendered. Obama is a “Natural Born” American for purposes of a constitutional test

81

So, (sy)Phyllis Schafly should ‘get a life’ and convince sane conservatives she doesn't have venereal brain rot This could begin by directing (sy)phyllis turn her attention to the bible fascism taking over our institutions and our military particularly, that is if conservative Americans are actually concerned with the conservative value of preserving our constitution Thank you and amen In an emergency ruling from the bench dictated by national security concerns, Justice Kennedy, with an expression indicating he’d herniated his rectum by the conclusion of Bozo’s argument, cast the deciding vote in a 5/4 decision for Obama, a decision notorious for Justice Kennedy’s refusal to utter the term ‘cock-sucker.’ John Roberts, Antonin Scalia, Samuel Alito and Clarence Thomas dissented, Justice Thomas was author of the losing opinion with the vehement expression: Cock-suckers! We lost!!

82 The Inter-Dimensional Hemorrhage of Time Napi’s lessons continue with Spotted Buffalo, his White German student of Shamanism “Everything you see surrounding you is an interpretation. It is nothing more than that. The paradox is, it is simultaneously an expression. And nothing more than that. This is the paradox of the two universe. Where people go wrong is messing around with the interpretation, because that alters the expression. And altering the expression has consequences that spill over into the interpretation. You cannot mess around with the one, without knowing consequence from the other. So, as in the case of the Whiteman, if you are only aware of the one side of it, the interpretation, and you jack that around, the expression nails you and then you wonder why. So then the Whiteman tries to fix it, altering the new interpretation because that is the only side he can see, and the expression hits him again, but this time even harder. Damn “Archaeology is the most easily explained example. The interpretation is the passage of time covers things up. Close, but no cigar. In actuality, the dirt he is piling out of the holes he digs is the time itsself. That is where he alters the expression. Because time is spilling out of those holes in the Quantum reality sense of particle memory association. The more he digs into the past, the more the past bleeds into the present. The Whiteman is collapsing time on us by digging things up. Poke so many holes in the membrane of time and the membrane tears wide open at some point and then comes the tidal wave. We are getting pretty close to that “You see it in everything. He has dug up all of the violence and the dead of the past and what do you see around you? Immense violence and death. He has dug up the time of the dinosaurs going after oil and we have the climate of the dinosaurs coming down on us. Not to mention the spirits of those times, the metal creatures that run on the associated memory of those times. So the past is collapsing into its future, our present, and their future, our present time, is simultaneously collapsing into the time of our ancestors and that is going to be pretty interesting. Now the Whiteman is all proud he has dug up the first mass plague graves from the middle ages and the same month his World Health Organization warns we are at the highest risk ever for a planetwide epidemic. Now there is a case of timing and no coincidence he should pay attention to. It is all coming about from digging things up. Like dead people and oil. What is the consequence? Lots more of the dead people. Oil drives his wars. It’s all related. Everything is related. Damn, his anthropologists thought that only meant kinship or something retarded like that. This would be true in the Whiteman’s microcosmic vision of things but everything is related is a way bigger idea than this simple kinship. Like everything is related in Quantum reality. HELLO!! It has been five hundred years we have been saying everything is related and you haven’t taken your recent baby steps in Quantum Mechanics out of the laboratory yet. What’s an Indian to supposed to do? Spell it out for you?” Napi and Spotted Buffalo both laughed at the joke. Both of them knew it was not funny. The paradox

83 Ego Diagnosed As Mental Illness Napi gives a presentation to a group of new age health practitioners on healing love Recalling Sioux leader Red Tomahawk on western science: “The knowledge and use of any or all the powers of the objects on Earth around us is as liable to lead a man wrong as to lead him right. It is merely power, with no way of knowing how to use it correctly … unless Woniya [Spirit] is with a man’s spirit for the light” The ancient native world diagnosed ‘ego’ as a mental illness and it is safe to say the ancient native mentality was an ethical ‘persona’ as opposed to a modern western ego based personality. To tell a lie was a concept that could not be grasped in the western sense. Compare this to the modern people who often do not even realize when they are lying to someone or being lied to, or most frightening, are not aware of when they might be lying to themselves, in a culture based on the self deceit of ego [individual self image] We can throw all the self deceit of ego’s love in western psychology at evil [in a morals based system] and get nowhere without practical principles or ethics Ethics is the avenue to a real or tangible love, ethical relationships with our surroundings in nature [precluding greed] to start, and applied ethics with our fellow man and our neighbors is the only avenue to peace Heads in the sand allow western social stupidities to go on and is why we are sinking as a society, generating the ‘terror’ we are subjected to, whether the terror of radicalized people resulting from policy of sustained economic development or the state terror of the policy enforcement mechanisms such as ‘renditions’ [chicken or egg, which came first?] The new age quantum mechanics ‘love and light’ crowd who think we can love our way into a new reality (never gonna happen) with a simple change in our heads short of taking real action against evil, are deluded. In fact all the love and light people on the planet are just accountable as Dick Cheney [and in a way just as self deceived or living a lie and consequently in a sense as spiritually ugly] for our doom in a sense of string theory [karma] when they don’t put their lives on the line for our future in a sense of ethics or busting their butts in some way to make the stupid stuff stop from this end When the western people figure out anthro-centric [western science which is a religion in its own right, or the capital 'I' in English, examples given] is by far the greater self-deceit than any native anthropomorphism, we might get on track and begin to understand ’stupid is as stupid does’ in the big picture Our plundering other societies is just now ‘a case of the chickens coming home to roost’ that every man woman and child in the USA is being held ‘accountable’ [never mind 'responsibility', they ARE different words and might as well be different worlds] for in a native sense of string theory, if you have enjoyed the elevated wealth tied to the plunder, you are accountable to the consequence, personal responsibility notwithstanding. You pump gas? String theory in quantum mechanics has you in its

84 grip, and there is no escape except to make personal sacrifice towards us all working together untying from that particular web governed by string theory’s rule as postulated by Jesus: ‘as you sow, so shall you reap’ It is as simple as a medicine man or Jesus saying “You must be like children in your understanding” which does not serve the purpose of any scientist, politician or any Thomas Aquinus or St Augustine who are ethical midgets by comparison to the truly simple and humble people known as ‘primitives’ in anthropology Female intelligence particularly, psychological androgyny generally, and integrated spiritual concept [related to the preceding] -all relate to original ethical concept in Native American thought and philosophy which has been both: metaphorically and literally destroyed [in translation] by western civilization’s science and education which are social-morals based in monotheism [something the ancient native culture is not] In the 1920s it was noted by scientists the native languages easily described processes in the new quantum mechanics, something western languages were struggling with. Native American languages have many hundreds of gender which are actually varying degrees of androgyny, a reality inconceivable to nearly all western thinkers with their he, she and gender neutral in the paternal hierarchal order whose reality is shaped by language of ‘I’ and trapped in its western mentality as postulated by Benjamin Whorf The ancient native mentality is perfectly suited to know the phenomena of quantum mechanics with its language foundation in observing processes in nature. Native ’spiritual’ concept is a mistranslation of a high ethics [not morals] system, free of fear, guilt or shame- all based on principled ethical relationships with our natural surroundings. It is not at all about right and wrong, rather it is about what works and what does not work. It really is as simple as that, what works as opposed to what does not work is the Native ethics in a nutshell, versus the fear, guilt and shame motivated western morality with its false forgiveness excusing accountability which has not, does not and never will make the necessary corrections for survival Quantum mechanics does not care about the individual by its very nature. Native America has attempted to tell the western world this most simple of seminal facts for 500 years: “It’s all related” -a thing simple and beautiful persons like Pat Kennedy or Chief Joseph or Heavy Runner or Tecumseh did not know how to explain to complicated, unhappy and self centered people, i.e. ‘Whitemen’ Yet these ‘primitives’ are the people who produced brilliant tacticians like Joseph and medicine men like Wolf Robe, men who performed miracles equal to some of those ascribed to Jesus, with native ethics based training in quantum theory demonstrating intelligence in a manner any lab or particle smasher will never come close to replicating. People who would not harm a stem of a single blade of grass if it could be avoided, let alone smash atoms, people who look at the technology induced malignancy of today’s planet and see the source of that malignancy in the western mentality of ‘I’ And again, Chippewa leader Rising Sun on western science: “The ’scientific view’ is inadequate to explain … how man is to find and know a road along which he wishes

85 and chooses to make this said progress unless Manitoo by his spirit guides the mind of man, keeping human beings just and generous and hospitable” Rising Sun, speaking as an elderly man in 1918, WAS NOT speaking solely or even primarily of human relationships with fellow humans, and as a western ‘I’ thinker, that would not have even occurred to you, were one to be perfectly honest with oneself

86 The Second Rape of Christine "Woman is a real devil, an enemy of the peace, a source of provocation." -Petrarch Christine Susan Wollstone is beautiful, brilliant in neuro-linguistics, but also propped up in artificial reality on Lithium, stemming from fractures caused by abuse from western men. Yet she is forced to compete/integrate with some of the biggest psychological erections encountered in the annals of Man, the personality types of Nietzche, Napoleon and Rasputin, all in a small socially incestuous (the personalities do not change, only the couplings) school for a surreptitious but State sponsored fascist Christian education. Rasputin conceals his mental herpes, Napoleon secretly frets over his complex, while Nietzche’s incessant mental erection is to a degree the opposite of Viagra could not repair.. Vance Nietzche, Jack Napoleon and Marcus Rasputin each took their place at the customary table in the school’s staff lounge, joining Ego Priapism in the very sort of clique their students often model but are sometimes persecuted for forming, because of its propensity to delinquent and dishonest behaviors Today they would disparage and denigrate the new parent Napi Mephisto, for the benefit of the listening Ms Wollstone who sits outside their circle, of course she can never really be one of them, but pandering to this new teacher’s desire to feel included and welcome, insignificant overtures have been made. But Christine also has been kept at a little distance, by each of these presiding alpha males, and quietly teased with the thought she might become a part of what is socially important. Christine must discover now who and what is cool, and who and what is not Napoleon and Rasputin both, have Mephisto’s son in their classes, Philosophy of Western Civilization and Overview of Natural Science respectively. Towards the end of the preceding semester, Christine had preposterously suggested the Mephisto kid’s father, Napi Mephisto, volunteer teach or give presentations to Nietzche’s Government classes, this Mephisto, a man that hasn’t the possession of the slightest social grace, simply look at him! Feral, un-housebroken, bearded like the Hell’s Angel he without question must have been, casually dressed in faded jeans and shirt that are obviously only washed and clean because he must mix at the school his son attends and he can muster nothing better Christine had approached Vance and said “Vance, hi! I want to tell you about the father of a 9th grade student, the father’s name is Napi Mephisto. Mr Mephisto came to speak to my classes about his personal experiences when he lived with the Indians… he is an author as well as a very active member of the community in regard to current issues…” Christine’s voice trailed off at the look on the face of Vance, a slightest raised eyebrows scepticism with the faintest touch of condescending smile, part pout (stupid girls) Vance replied “I have to attend to something just now, of course I will be interested to hear about Mephisto. If you will put the information together in an email for me, I will get back to you. Ok? We can visit about it later”

87 Dear Vance, Hi there! Per our conversation, I wanted to pass along this message (below) from Napi Mephisto, father of one of my English Lit students. Napi came to speak to my classes about his personal experiences when he lived with the Indians following his return to the U.S. after Vietnam. His presentation was a very valuable learning experience for my students as well as myelf. He is also an author as well as a very active member of the community in regard to many current issues. I believe that Mr. Mephisto could contribute to your classes as well as he did to mine. Feel free to contact him. Let me know if you have any questions! Have a great day! -Christine ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------Hi, Christine, I would like to explore the idea of setting up a partnership between the organization New Age Native America and the appropriate school programs for extra credit or extra cirricular studies, something that perhaps could be related to student Inquiry Questions. I briefly talked with the NANA Director and he told me to go ahead and explore ideas with you. The director also said that he would waive the NANA Speaker Series for your school’s students. The new flyer is not yet out for the upcoming speakers, but I will get it out to you asap, when I know it has become availiable. I don't know the proper persons to explore the next idea with, but it occurs to me that I might be useful contributing to any classes interested in United States Constitutional Law, especially as relates to International Human Rights and Treaty Law. I know that there are moot court competitions in the high school scene, but essentially know nothing about how they are organized or how the subject law and cases are assigned. It would be cool to assist coaching a law team in the areas of law I am familiar with, or even to guest teach in a more general sense. Kind regards Napi Vance Nietzche did not reply to Christine’s email, but let some time pass and now Jack Napoleon brought up Mephisto to Nietzche and Rasputin while at lunch, seated at a table adjacent to Christine. Napoleon: Did you hear Napi Mephisto’s son is suspect in introducing the new problem with drugs to our students? Vance feigned a look of surprise but Marcus Rasputin assumed a knowing air. Rasputin: Old news. The Mephisto kid’s father has been coaching soccer and it is my understanding this is being looked at closely for altogether more serious issues… it would seem he has

88 taken an interest in placing the Mephisto kid on co-ed teams and there does seem to be a need to look into any possible use of his kid as bait for an ulterior predatory motive.. Christine felt the chill of deepest fear and loathing stemming from the memory of her abduction and rape… fighting nausea and dizziness, the continued conversation in her hearing became subliminal… She had been distracted – she did not notice him digging through her purse ... He whispered to her, her child's name and “I have her”, he named her daughter's school. Then he embraced her like a lover ... “I'm going to kiss you now and you make sure it looks like you want it or you will never see her.” Christine felt, again, the same silent scream... by now he is whispering into her mouth as he is kissing her… “Walk out with me… ..and speaking of the kid bringing in the drugs, have you seen his eyes? Talk about coming to class stoned! Vance Nietzche then drove the last nail of Christine’s crucifixion with: “To think the older Mephisto has been brought into class!

89 The Great Oxymoron Napi attends the ‘New Age in Native America’ conferences on quantum mechanics.. Lester Log Roller was from a family of Indians named for a drunken forebear who had been 'challenged' by some White loggers in the Pacific Northwest to participate in the "Logger Olympics" of sport unique to their profession. Lester's forebear actually had brought off his performance quite well, while keeping his balance on a log in a pond which he managed to roll with agility, both forwards and backwards... his fame for the event however, was the wild look of panic on this Indians face with his braids flying askew, because this Indian did not know how to swim. His champion log rolling performance was purely survival driven which made the event all the more hilarious to the redneck Whites that had sent him onto the log at gunpoint. The chief of this White Redneck tribe's sense of honor, his name was Lucious Ludicrous Bean, declared Log Roller should be allowed to live for his amazing ability to mimic the loggers in the sport ("Damn, who'd believed"), but the Indian would hereafter have to be known by the new name and answer to it. The Indian agreed to the terms required to save his life while still on the log, and was subsequently fished out of the pond both before he had drowned and nearing sobriety, because he had finally fallen into the water from pure exhaustion. Log Roller's descendant, Lester Log Roller, subsequently was from a family of Indians that did not drink. They knew better. He went to Law School instead Nobody in the White Academic world knew how to create a Native Studies Program because in fact to postulate a program as such in the western classroom was oxymoron. Hell, they did not even know that. Native Studies, if it was Natives doing the studies, would be non-interfering in Nature, observing the processes from which all Native intelligence had been drawn. Lester Log Roller did not know that, because he had been off to Boarding School from age five and then off to University in Kanadada. By this time he had mastered the provincial English linguistic trick of stating the just so "Eh?" after postulating something as mundane as "How aboot (yucky pronunciations) we run to the trading post for some smokes. Eh?" And his Blackfoot language was rusty, such as the time he was home from boarding school to visit and his Aunt told him to go back out (he had just come in the door) and bring in the "Napi-aki." Lester started to go back out, he was confused, but then resolutely faced his Aunt and told her "I don't have a White woman!" She laughed and said in English "I'm not talking about White women, I want you to bring in the milk jug." Lester felt dumb. Napi-aki could mean either milk jug or White woman, but he did not get the context. He had been too long away at school Lester was a conscientious sort, and so when his undergraduate major in 'Native Studies' was decided on, he returned home in summers and brushed up on his Blackfoot Language. But he did not realize that the answer to bring his university into line with the political correctness of the new times had been to establish a White Anthropology program staffed by White-educated mentalities in people with Red skins and call it 'Native Studies.' And so, Lester, like the now countless other Red skinned people of Native descent, thought this was real. He should have remembered the Blackfoot proverb "Everyone knows the Whiteman is crazy." But Lester could not know this now applied to himself. So he questioned his former people's elders to get ideas for his papers he would need to write in the discipline of anthropology disguised

90 with the 'Native Studies' euphemism. And thought he was Indian Lester went on to Law School and eventually became Director of 'Native Studies' at a great university which had been duly impressed with his achievements in the Whiteman's so-called field of 'Indian Treaty Law,' having nothing to do with actual Aboriginal Laws of past times, but which combined with the idea he spoke Blackfoot, seemed to make him eminently qualified to run their program. Here at university he met the great White theoretical physicist David Bohm and they had discussed David's curiousity as to why it had been noted as early as the 1920's the Native American languages seemed to have no problem describing many phenomena of the new theoretical physics, which western languages had difficulty coping with. Lester had no idea why either, but it seemed there must be something to it and so they began a dialogue... and eventually Lester became a god. To at least three or four people. Lester, later on retired and living in a townhouse in the better part of Lethbridge, Kanadada, had continued with his anthropological interest in studying his former people and was particularly interested in their form of government before they had been conquered. His anthropological studies got him up and running on three legs in Blackfoot ways, like the proverbial wild dog that had chewed off one leg to escape a trap... and that was about it Lester had by this time taken over the dialogue and thought he had some things figured out: Like how the old time chiefs circle of oratory had worked. Not. What he attempted to replicate in fact became a lunatic caricature of what had been his ancestral wisdom. It was not meant to be evil and in fact it was not evil. It was merely stupid. But Lester could not know that By this time, these dialogues, with David Bohm now dead, had become sponsored by a 'Wannabee Indian' organization called 'New Age in Native America' run by an analretent-hyper-liberal White intellectual who fancied himself an enlightened feminist man. Though one might suspect otherwise, this man was not 'bi,' neither bi-sexual, nor bi-cultural Narcissus Yabadabadoo Montenegro was a "Coyote" in the strict local Hispanic sense of the term, that is a 'Spanglo.' You would never know to which community of his ancestry he was loyal to, because this sort of Coyote could only be loyal to himself. His ego was of a soft burnished sort, the kind of lovely passive-aggressiveness whose nasty aspect was presented in the effeminate dark side aroma of the flower he was named for. As a real Indian, you just did not want to get too close to Narcissus if you were to enjoy the genuine natural beauty of his expression. And so it also was with the NANA sponsored dialogues he so expertly organized for the world to know the truth of the New Age in Native America When Narcissus gazed into the reflective pool of the soft loveliness in his ego, he could detect no offensive aroma. His ethnocidal nuance as applied to Native American thought and philosophy was of a much prettier and more refined sort than that established for his intellectual forebears in the psychological literature developed by Erich Fromm: who postulated the Nazis much enjoyed the smell of their own farts. A far cry from the camps and ovens, the ethnocidal 'thrust' of Narcissus' ego priapismic tendencies was to bring about the immolation of the Indians beliefs and

91 thinking with grandiose graphics of Taoist imagery superimposed on Native American fruits and vegetables extrapolated to western print: advertising the many 'Red Skinned [Elmer] Fudds' (PhDs) he would gather alongside White skinned western scientists in a grand orgy of psyco-somatic ego-stroking masturbation in high intellectual workshops of inter-racial discourse Napi fell for it in the beginning. It was attractive, because Lester, a Blackfoot Indian who could speak his language was master of ceremony and that fact, taken together with the promoted agenda of Native America's relationship to an observational philosophy of Quantum Mechanics, convinced Napi at the start he would learn something. Well, Napi did learn some things, he just did not learn what he had expected, like a wider understanding of Native Quantum Reality. Napi learned about Quantum Mechanics in the laboratory from the White scientists and absolutely nothing at all from the many PhD Native Americans because they had no idea at all of how Native Quantum Reality functionally worked. Damn, it was sad. Not one PhD, not a single PhD from either side of the Racial divide, understood that to be Native American in thought and philosophy had absolutely nothing to do with Race. PhD. Wow. The White western scientists were sometimes frustrated with the Red western scientists who could only tell stories from anthropology that were totally out of context and consequently nonsensical. That fact only made the Red western scientists equal to the White western scientists totally out of context with Nature and nonsensical lab experiments Napi simply observed the first year he attended. The second year he contributed a little bit of real Indian thinking and freaked out Lester because it looked as though the entire event could be shown up as a case of 'The Emperor Has No Clothes!' The third year Napi had tried to explain to Narcissus and had approached Lester directly about making a contribution, how some things could change to open up the dialogues to real learning, but Napi was frozen out instead. No upsetting the gravy train of ego allowed here! Rather the 'face' of the event was to be preserved at all costs, a portrait of the mysterious and knowledgeable Indian, Lester, presiding over an event that might one day yield his great secrets held in abeyance: to his lesser Native beings and the handful of toadying sycophant Whites who peered upon his Native holiness with expressions of Heavenly reverence as though they were alter-boys seated upon the left and right hands of God. In fact, it appeared to Napi that Lester didn't know shit. Lester only knew how to rest on his laurels from his former Native Studies program directorship at Harvard, look important, and otherwise act cool and all knowing. That's it Napi thought: “What a lot of BS”

The Beautiful Blue Planet Napi explains to his audience at Bamberg University the Native American view in relation to science, and why space exploration is a resource devouring waste of time The 'Beautiful Blue Planet' is an apt name for where we live and it is nothing short of tragic wonder more people don't appreciate our beauty of existence in an undisturbed sense- particularly the western science which avoids honest math going to the equation of damage inflicted through exploitation of nature necessary for Space Exploration. This brings to mind Einstein's stating the intelligence which creates a problem is inadequate to solve that problem- i.e. asking the science which is destroying the planet to get us out of this mess (as if we can create a 'space ark' to move on) is nothing short of planetary suicide based on current economic model of 'sustained development' Sustained development is precisely the principle of cancer and a macro-cosmic cancerous mentality of the collective western world is devouring us, lock, stock and ecosystem on the pyramid scheme necessary to place satellites in orbit, including the Hubble. In shamanic ethics, which are a quantum based reality, there is no escape from responsibility and insofar as any good coming of the destruction required to 'advance' knowledge in western culture, it is not going to happen except in a possible sense of learning what does NOT work and that learning will be trauma based, and simply reflects the entirety of collective responsibility Prior to 10,000 years ago, most of the planet lived in a high state of awareness by comparison to our present time. In the past, prior to projecting reality or the externalizing ideation which came with the birth of ego, there were traditions of interstellar experience via a concept of 'awake dreaming' or what only now is being rediscovered in western culture as the concept of lucid dreaming Time travel was known and my position would be the whole idea of the Anunnaki is nothing more than the ancients looking forward to us and now, in a sense of where ideas come from in different areas of the brain The Plains Ojibwa had a shamanic tradition which survived into my lifetime that could see through time and space using nothing more than the mind, upon which the history of their world was based Insofar as projecting into other locales in space-time, the [ancient] Native understanding is our brain is a model of the universe, and we are always located in the present area of consciousness. Other areas of implied consciousness simply reflect alternative collective organization of consciousness in the brain at different times in history Looking for 'it' out there is barking up the wrong tree, because it is when we get it 'here', we are going to be able to find ‘it’, 'there' Going to that thought, transposed onto western ideation, I propose the archetypes in western mythology represent nothing more than battles of ideas, for instance the titans

93 overthrow marking past ‘new world order’ or change [drop] in consciousness so to speak Like the medicine man Jesus had said, the 'kingdom of heaven is within you' and 'in my father's house there are many mansions.' Everything you imagine to be out there, is already here. Evidence of Nibiru indicates upcoming shift in the locale of consciousness, which points to a fundamental change of reality and, no one can know what to expect Our brain has a sort of inter-stellar GPS built in and it is where the majority are locked in [or out] of consciousness, is where we find ourselves. Again and again in the [Oral] history of Native civilization, the Navaho tradition is very clear in this, we have changed locales, and lived on different planets. None of it required spaceships

94 Bozo’s Federalist Society Speech Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, Chairman of the Federalist Society steering committee, smarting from the victory for Obama in the case of (sy)Phyllis v B.O. had, at the committee’s next meeting, proposed creating a plan to eradicate Bozo L’Dodo from the face of the earth. Steering committee member Dick Cheney outlined the plan. The strategy began with inviting Bozo to address the society at the time of Bozo’s being awarded society membership for opening viewpoints strengthening diversity of opinion Bozo began his society speech with atypical humility, but this humbleness, of course, could not be sustained. Bozo’s alcohol damaged frat brain being grounded in Handcock U satire determined he would after-all, present in style, little suspecting any possible thing could be wrong August members of the Federalist Society, I propose I’m least among many deserving of this award and, with that thought, I begin this evening’s presentation with a few short citations of those more deserving than myself. Please consider my following nominations for a new category of awards, The “I Knew It Was Wrong But Thought It Was Legal” Boner Awards My secular hero, Roger Cohen, a man I’d extolled in glory for his courageous stance as a Jew pointing to our Israel policy as a disaster, has ‘pulled a boner’ [exhibited extreme male cowardice] by jumping on Obama’s ‘don’t prosecute for torture’ bandwagon Roger needs a lesson in what the term “Rule of Law” is all about, and the idea constitutions make presidents, not vice versa, meaning our constitution informs Obama how things are going to be, and I will simply add to that, a Writ of Mandamus is a court ordering public officials [could possibly include a president as military commander-in-chief and most certainly any attorney general] to carry out their constitutional duties to enforce the rule of law and it is a huge embarrassment to American democracy when that particular legal weapon must be employed… second only to a consent decree… thought I’d note that before I consigned Roger to the booby hatch of legal ignominy with the distinct sound of a flush… bye-bye Roger… (Roger might crawl his way out of the sewer if he stays away from the ‘I knew it was wrong but thought it was legal’ sewage of Anglo-Saxon law, good lawyer joke, eh? Law Ignoramus award FBI man Ali Soufan’s “Tortured Decision” editorial, in which he puts on his adopted country’s liberal-bleeding-White-heart sheepskin, admits keeping his mouth shut for seven years and only now speaks out because of the torture memos release… Soufan reveals there is more as yet unclassified memos… think about it. This is the FBI concealing crime for seven years and STILL CONCEALING EVIDENCE OF CRIME… enough on this bit before I aspirate my puke… a sort of self-simulated drowning… Soufan earns torturer/traitor/coward awards combined Renown ‘civil liberties’ lawyer Harvey Silvergate argues against torture prosecutions, claiming they will make bad law, he appears to rationalize/justify “terror and pain” short of “disfigurement and death”, making the case that Bush did not go as far as the

95 Nazis, so it doesn’t seem so bad… now, going to his legal ignorance on top of his criminal ethics… his idea that: because the torturers supposedly did not know what they were doing was illegal on account of ‘Yoo Principle’ legal memos, they cannot be charged under our Anglo-Saxon laws heritage requiring criminal intent… sorry Harvey but you get the law proverb “a man who represents himself [in his editorial] has a fool for an attorney” award… because Harvey ‘nincompoop’ Silvergate goes on to mention the case of the Nazi trials where Americans at Nuremburg convicted people for crimes that seemed perfectly legal in a criminal regime, going to the primal International Law principle “no nation may go against it’s own acts”, also known as, ‘what is good for the goose is good for the gander’… more to this point, we also convicted Japanese of war crimes for waterboarding, perfectly fitting this International Law rule which now consequently holds our own people accountable despite the Anglo-Saxon ‘I knew it was wrong but thought it was legal’ principle of law which is now history, past, had been, was the case, in fact legally dead in cases like this, because of the precedent we set for ourselves in the prosecution of others… additionally, under ‘the Silvergate nincompoop rationale’, a certain Nazi camp guard following orders in his assigned duties likely could not have been recently deported to Germany to face criminal charge. Silvergate earns a Nincompoop award Nancy Pelosi admits she knew the Bush administration was spying on (wiretapping) Rep Jane Harman and kept the treasonous secret (for the Bush people), from Harman, notice none of these people ever takes responsibility or shows courage? Pelosi: “I was not allowed to tell [Harman]“, what was to stop Pelosi telling the entire congress from her podium except cowardice? Pelosi awarded torturers trash the 4th amendment AND friendship ‘Judas’ special award Obama Treasury Secretary Timothy ‘get out of jail free’ Geithner meets with President of Switzerland Hans Merz in apparent negotiations to excuse the Swiss bank UBS from having to fork over the names of 52,000 wealthy American tax cheats with secret Swiss accounts… anybody up for a game of “Monopoly?” Timothy just drew what should be a “Go to Jail” card… as he is giving out “Get out of Jail free” cards. Can’t be torturing the wealthy tax cheats with prosecutions… Torturer administration’s Equal protection clause Traitor award Robert Gates’ fundamentalist Christian led military is flaunting the legally binding security agreement Bush made with Iraq, conducting multiple illegal raids, killing and kidnapping Iraqi innocents… another operation was busted by the Iraqi government, the USA admits a ‘mistake’, the abductees had to be set free… the USA’s ‘Campus Crusade for Christ’ continues on the Iraqi front, not only escalates in Afghanistan, under Christian Dominion Central Command’s General Patreaus… who’d just as soon kill as torture. Federal death penalty eligible treason award Harper’s Magazine cover story “Jesus killed Mohammed” is out, detailing Robert ‘tonton macoutes’ Gates’ Christian military’s religion inspired hate crime against Islam, Jews, Blacks, Women, kids, cartoons and the author of this speech, but particularly noting constitutional law professor Obama, who swore on Abraham Lincoln’s Bible to uphold our constitution and enforce our laws, has abdicated taking on the constitutional crimes against separation of church and state in our military in his role as our commander-in-chief… meanwhile Obama is photographed in the International Herald Tribune together with Gates, evoking Tammy Wynette… “Stand

96 by your man… give him two arms to cling to…” Loving Christians torture of Muslims for Jesus award Former Attorney General Robert Kennedy had written a legal memo recommending lifting the travel ban to Cuba, noting the travel ban was unconstitutional, he was correct, American’s have a right to freely associate and travel, he was over-ruled by our torturing CIA infested Department of State which kept his memo classified as a state secret for 46 years… State Department gets a corporate service tortured law and treason award [unit citation] New York Times columnist Roger Cohen takes a stride out of the cesspool of AngloSaxon law and the ‘I knew it was wrong but thought it was legal’ no criminal intent defense, by continuing to write on other subjects, maybe soon he will have access to a shower and change of clothes… in his editorial ‘Of loos and language’ (in almost excellent ‘dry’ British humor, ugh) Roger points out the most notable difference between Bush and Obama to now, is Obama can actually speak English… Kudos Roger!! Of course Roger’s title for his editorial could easily be pointed to this speech, no problem, ‘we’ (you know, the British royal use of ‘we’, as in I admit I’m being a royal asshole) welcome ratings ;o) my noting here Roger had pointed out to me he’d begun his journey out of the Anglo-Saxon ‘loo of law’ with a key title word in a previous editorial: ‘pirouette’) A Spanish judge has opened the fourth investigation in Spain going to Bush administration torture… two of the investigations had been previously dismissed or shelved, either for lack of evidence or because of political pressures from the USA. The two investigations opened since Obama taking office are now ongoing, the weaker one previous to this most recent had been opposed by Obama and the USA who have pressured Spain, and this new investigation poses the largest threat yet to his administrations ongoing ‘I knew it was wrong but thought it was legal’ ‘Yoo principle’ attempts to give the Bush people and his CIA criminals a get out of jail free card… the judge: “an authorized and systematic plan of torture and abuse of people stripped of liberty, without charges and denied the basic rights afforded detainees” and the court will “seek personal responsibility in the different structures of execution, direction and design and authorization for this systematic torture plan” which of course upon the judicial investigations completion I predict must include American leaders I will name in this presentation, not only Bush and cronies but notably Nancy Pelosi… Obama given a treasonous torturing coward’s campaign star for having opposed these efforts Russia is retiring 23,000 military officers in a force ‘modernization’ reorganization, a course of action I highly recommend to Commander-in-Chief Obama (Torquemada?) who should have already dumped the 15,000 USA armed forces officers belonging to the Byzantine ‘Officer’s Christian Fellowship” that actually believe if you are not a fundamentalist Christian, every motivation you have, no matter how noble, is a subversion of humanity “spearheaded by Satan”- torturers holy inquisition resurrection award The cognitive dissonance of a case just dismissed at our Justice Department’s prosecutors request… some lobbyists for Israel that probably really deserve to go to jail for treason (espionage) can’t be prosecuted because the judge refused to go along

97 with some of the prosecutions demands for state secrecy in evidence… now our crooks can get off the hook by demanding typical evidence discovery rights of defendants, something judges rightly should not deny, with defendant likely knowing there are so many worms in this particular case’s can of ‘justice’, the Justice Department dare not produce the can… our tortures the law Justice Department gets a ‘can of worms’ award Retired British spook gets it, MI6 man Alastair Crooke (all financiers are in some sense crooks?, Crooke was a banker who left the industry because he did not like the greed before he was a spy), founded “Conflicts Forum” which seeks to establish the validity of opposing points of view for adversaries so they can honestly negotiate instead of “talking past each other.” Brilliant!! Now, to the disturbing thought his ‘Conflicts Forum’ raised when I read the article and discovered it includes “former spies, diplomats and peace activists…” is the reporter/writer a moron or did he actually mean “former peace activists”… (context, dude, should have been ‘peace activists, diplomats and former spies, although ‘diplomat’ and spy’ are synonyms journalism moron award, but bringing to mind: One of our human rights organizations has been staffed by CIA in executive position, information I could be arrested and jailed for if I were to go so far as revealing ‘state secret’ identities… who are your CIA? Think about it. These are highly educated people who do 20 years or 30 years and retire to a sailboat or second job or both, depending on the USA retirement plan. Meanwhile, in the operational sector, they chill out under cover when not needed or even use straight jobs AS their cover. Not just a few of them are highly paid professional assassins. They are your diplomats, corporate board members, lawyers, educators (the pretty much out of the closet Rice/Chevron/Hoover Institute/Yoo/Stanford relationship can be seen), cops, FBI agents, pastors, human rights executives and journalists (that is just SO wrong), military officers, diverse corporate executives and employees, doctors, etcetera, normal seeming people afforded frequent vacations or travel frequently in their work… all cover for CIA. This is a socially criminal organization penetrating every aspect of society and should be disbanded, as easy as shutting off their money… Amnesty International earns the ‘we declined to meet with Ronald West and rather wish he was dead’ human rights front for intelligence services award Hillary goes to press saying “I love my job” which actually can only mean ‘I love jobbing the millions of women who voted for me on social issues’, reiterating Hillary could have had any cabinet position she liked but chose one far away from any reality of insuring health care reform or putting forward an American ‘women’s rights’ stamp on this administration… woman Judas award My buddy Roger Cohen at the New York Times reads the Harper’s Magazine article “Jesus Killed Mohammed”, poops his pants and pirouettes on his honest column of the previous week accurately depicting Obama as differing from Bush only in the fact Obama can actually speak English… now Roger does journalistic fellatio on Obama’s foreign policy, ‘dripping’ praise for Obama’s differing approach contrasted to the factual “War on Islam” of Bush… neglecting to note the Harper’s article and Obama’s callow inability to take on Defense Secretary Gates’ religious extremist generals… in which case the “War on Islam” actually continues as a Bush/Obama policy… Bozo Boner award to Roger [male cowardice]

Roger returns to sensibility, dealing with peace in the middle east, recovering the pseudo of his manhood, but from here out I am going with Maureen Dowd over Roger’s PMS and mood swings, you just can’t know what to expect from Roger, I’ve been checking out Maureen and she is HOT! A better writer altogether, she has superior courage and took up the theme Roger had abandoned in his panic attack, Maureen, in her much more direct editorial “Cheney grabs a 3rd term” writes how it appears Cheney and Rumsfeld are making policy for their “boy toy” Obama ( good one ;o) Maureen Dowd earns a beauty, courage and truth award Hamas leader Khalid Meshal on Obama: “His language is different and positive” earning Meshal a honorable mention ‘a sucker is born every minute’ award Meshal (who to now the Obama administration will not include in any mid-east peace process at the insistence of Israel) and Ronald West share the dubious distinction of having survived bungled intelligence service assassination attempts, Meshal poisoned by mossad at the orders of the Israeli prime minister Netanyahu.. multiple attempts on West at the orders of the mossad/CIA/Department of Defense combined ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ rogue intelligence agents ‘in the service of our religious extremist super-friends alliance’… mossad/CIA and religious extremist super-friends alliance earn a Corporate-Star-Chamber/Curia-Borgia bungler assassins award “As long as they don’t exclude any option, let the United States select the order of things,” Nobel Peace Prize winner Israeli President Shimon Peres states while dictating terms it’s banana republic USA may employ in exploring a new relationship with Iran… Peres making the point a bombing Iran “option” belongs to the USA first and then Israel will start the war the USA will have to fight [with USA armies on the flank of Iran] if the Americans won’t blow up the ayatollahs… after an Israeli dictated ‘what the USA policies will be’ meeting on nuclear weapons with Obama and we all know Israel will be using American weapons and money and any Israeli attack would be no different that the USA initiating hostilities from Iran and the entire Islamic world’s point of view- Nobel Peace Prize selection committee gets ‘pulled a boner’ award [made a stupid mistake] USA hog farming giant Smithfield Corporation murders ‘Wilber’ of Charlottes Web, since they have moved into Romania, Smithfield has run roughshod over the environmental laws ill equipped to deal with the new mega-hog’s super-barns… as well in a mere four years they had driven the number of Romanian small pig operations from 477,000 to 52,000… with the impact felt as far away as African pig farmers who cannot compete with the sharp and sudden influx of cheap pork. Shareholders swine flu off-shore-tax-haven award, meanwhile, speaking of some real pigs: Defense Secretary Gates’ ‘open fly’ boys, piloting bombers sporting JESUS SAVES logos on their ‘cock’pits, shred scores of kids and women in Afghanistan, like Mickey Mouse taking on 7 giants at a single ‘blow’, AGAIN… even as Gates’ religious extremist generals are busted by Al Jeezera TV for lying about concerted effort in command structure promoting Christian proselytizing of Afghans… led by the U.S. Army Chaplains and fundamentalist friends working on saving the souls of those

99 Muslim “children of Satan” in a military that consequently blows the idea ‘Jesus loves the little children’ to bits with air strikes when the kids say ‘no thanks’ Now, considering United States had planned, authorized and implemented torture, violating treaties we are signed to (never mind just how creepy that is) and that torture will now be altogether excused by our Department of ‘Just Us’ fundamentalist Christians no problem with the cover-up and denial of the USA’s ‘holy war’ crime that goes on, eh Commander-in-Chief Obama? Any guess why the Afghans might prefer the theology of the Taliban to the ‘liberation’ theology of your military?? Commander-in-Chief Obama- ‘I’m still standing behind my Christian Crusaders’ war crimes award It’s come back to ‘I knew it was wrong but thought it was legal’ no criminal intent Anglo-Saxon law at Attorney General Holder’s Justice department… where waterboarding is torture but there is no crime involved… The Department of Justice, investigating itself, the same method the Israeli and American militaries use to insure they cannot discover evidence of war crimes or religious extremists and hate crimes that exist in it’s ranks… now the Justice department internal inquiry draft report finds ‘lapses but no crimes’ relating to the people preparing the ‘torture is legal’ memos, Obama’s Justice Department is determined EVERYONE will get off the hook, includes those who systematically planned, authorized, and implemented war crimes in the treatment of captives… welcome to the United States of Mugabe, Robert ‘tonton macoutes’ Gates in charge, all of Gates’ harem ‘boys’ curtsey to their polyandrous spouse… Gates- earns a Bugs Bunny in drag ‘gay wabbit’ award (that was a cruel rabbit, just ask Elmer Fudd) ‘queen’ Condoleezza (mirror, mirror on the wall) tells a student at a forum torture is: “legal by definition, if the president authorizes it”, and you just have to wonder at the Israeli philosophy of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ because theirs has become a case of ‘with friends like these, who needs enemies?’ It is likely gonna be déjà vu for American Jews, not only the Jews in Israel, the American knee-jerk support for Israeli policy, no matter how self destructive, is looking more and more like a case of the chickens headed home to roost when these “perfected in God’s sight Jews” [Ann Coulter, citing St Paul] fundamentalist Christians’ coup is complete and the “Christ killers” [U.S. military’s Officer’s Christian Fellowship ‘passion’ theology sobriquet for Jews] are told on ‘the water-board’ to convert because Mel Gibson’s Latin ‘rite’ wing Pius X “pray for the Jews” is back in vogue at Rome where waterboarding makes sense, because the church can save the Amazon this way, which the Pope has said is equally important to saving the world from homosexuals, rather than waste wood burning the Gays, Jews, Secular Humanists, Witches, women generally, kids that don’t behave, especially alter boys that talk, people who sue the church.. Condoleezza awarded the ‘president authorized it’ ‘Gangrene Heart’ lapel pin Another spook gets it, ex-CIA Kabul (Afghanistan) station chief Graham Fuller’s New York Times “Out of Afghanistan” editorial, where he makes the case the 40 million ethnic Pashtun divided between Pakistan and Afghanistan are turning to the Taliban more as an expression of Pashtun power and independence under pressure from American military policy of “drone bombings and assassinations” rather than any great love for Taliban politics… pointing out “Pashtun are among the most fiercely nationalist, tribalized and xenophobic peoples of the world.” I hope Obama

100 reads the paper because his Defense Secretary Gates’ fellow fundamentalist Christian and Obama National Security Advisor, former Chevron Board Director and Marine Corps General James ‘the reverend jim’ Jones, won’t be telling Obama these truths.. and Obama needs to think about the modern day number of FORTY MILLION of the same Pashtun Alexander the Great could not defeat with superior weapons and training, and since Alexander had failed, no one has ever defeated the Pashtun, Soviet Union included… Fuller wins a rehabilitation to truth award, a rare honor for CIA Speaking of CIA “drone bombings and assassinations”, I’d neglected to mention awhile back the Zirdari photo in the New York Times, Zirdari grinning like the cat that ate the canary with his wife out of the way, flanked by photos of Benazir Bhutto as though those photos were feathers of a bird clinging to the corners of his mouth… Zirdari sucks up to the CIA in ways Benazir never would have… Zirdari wins a ‘sucks up to the CIA at any price to bring me to power’ award Obama’s National Security Advisor, Chevron Board Director and Marine Corps General James ‘the reverend jim’ Jones, continues using the press to step out of the shadow and draw attention away from the discredited Department of Defense relating to airstrikes that kill scores of kids and their moms… “we can’t fight with one hand tied behind our back”… gee, he just admitted he can’t nearly as effectively kill kids and women without airstrikes… meanwhile ‘Campus Crusade’ General David ‘a jihad for jesus’ Patraeus appoints a “one star general” to ‘study’ the airstrike massacres “problem”, you know ‘one star’ only has to please his fellow Christian extremist generals and ‘one star’ will become two… while a Pope who has rehabilitated the anti-Semitic extremist ‘passion for pius x’ calls for tolerance even as the ‘passion’ inspired American special operations generate holy war… as Defense Secretary (de facto commander-in-chief by default actually) Robert ‘tonton macoutes’ Gates calls for a major revamp of our military to beef up those very special operations forces which are ideal for committing war crimes under cover… Bonanza of torturing Bozos award Constitutional law professor Obama takes the coward’s moral midget road and moves to block the release of war crimes photos ordered released by TWO courts, on behalf of his recent bosom buddy, the war criminal Defense Secretary Robert Gates, oblivious to the ONLY means of defusing holy war with the Muslim world which is: to come clean and prosecute… while the New York Times reporters continue to suck up to the incompetence in Afghanistan, writing on the war as though it were not yet the total fiasco it is, giving the war credence by quoting generals who make an unwinnable war even more un-winnable than necessary… no one is asking the hard questions, ignoring how to win peace, like clearing out the religious extremism… meanwhile Congress “grumbles” as it prepares to ante up the hundreds of billions upon wasted trillions to keep it all going downhill… cluster of tortured boners award The homophobic Boy Scouts of America’s “Explorer Scouts”, some as young as 14, are given anti-terror SWAT training by police who have to take online anti-sexual abuse courses, as though that would stop a pedophile, on account of past civil and criminal cases concerning police sexual abuse of the Explorer Scouts… Boy Scouts earn a closet-pedophile ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ award

101 Supreme Court Justice Scalia says he does not believe in legislative intent… now I really hate to spill scalding coffee on the bulge in Scalia’s lap, but if this is the case as he states, Scalia has a problem. There is this ‘thing’ in our Constitution called “unenumerated rights” and if Scalia can only read the language of the law itself without taking into account the legislative intent, those “un-enumerated rights” must be forever “un-enumerated” in which case they can never be “rights”… congress sent an idiot to the bench award Sociopath CIA agent in denial Sabrina De Sousa is wanted in Italy for kidnap and delivery to torture… this dufus 53-year-old-4-year-old-in-denial sues the USA for diplomatic immunity she is not elgible for in her former consular work (lawyers will try anything for money, in this case the dufus Sabrina’s money), denying she was a CIA agent, the case draws the media’s attention and they of course go to their sources who are also CIA and the sources blow it for her by saying Sabrina is CIA… HOW STUPID WAS THAT SABRINA? The interesting thing here is the State Department (Sabrina’s cover) sources saying they are trying to get the Italian case involving Sabrina shut down, hell yes, they are because this is the case where an Italian intelligence agency defendant brought out the information Condoleezza Rice was in charge of the USA’s delivery to torture program called ‘extraordinary renditions’. Interesting, Ronald West states he recognizes Sabrina from her photo, their paths had crossed in Germany? (remarkable, a perfect stranger SMIRKS at you in Wiesbaden, duh, says Ronald) Sabrina gets CIA bungler award Which brings us back to Obama and Gates trying to shut down the photographic evidence of abuse by Americans ordered released by our courts… Obama’s statement (parroting the denial of Bush era) indicating isolated incidence “carried out in the past by a small number of individuals” is a bald-faced, through the teeth lie. This is Constitutional law professor Obama’s assault on the rule of law in the tradition of John Yoo, because we know now this photographic evidence reflects only a few instance of a several agencies wide (CIA, Justice, Defense and State) program involving many hundreds of people and thousands of cases of war crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan, Guantanamo, Black Sites and proxies, which in part have been described by a judge in Spain as “an authorized and systematic plan of torture and abuse of people stripped of liberty, without charges and denied the basic rights afforded detainees” There is ONE WAY OUT of our war with Islam begun by Bush/Cheney, and that one way out is: GOOD FAITH PROSECUTIONS to stop the ONGOING religion motivated crime NOW…. Here are the CIA briefed American leaders who approved, initiated and/or pursued carrying out the torture program. CIA briefers were then director George ‘torture’s’ Tenet and deputy director John Mc-Laugh-lin Briefees included George ‘baby doc’ Bush, ‘big dick’ Cheney, ‘queen’ Condoleezza (mirror, mirror on the wall), Don ‘tin man’ Rumsfeld, and John ‘Muslims are the children of Satan’ Ashcroft, no surprises there Colin Powell? Oops, his claim he was duped into presenting false intelligence info at the UN, justifying Iraq’s invasion, I think just turned into the kid run over by the ice cream truck

102 Senate hawks Bob ‘cracker’ Grahm and Richard ‘confederate general’ Shelby, Florida and Alabama respectively, ok, perfectly straightforward right wing honkies, to be expected, no surprises there either Congressman Porter ‘former director of CIA’ Goss, I’d be surprised if he had NOT been named, and whadda-ya-know: NANCY ‘aeps’ PELOSI If ever there were a doubt Nancy suffers ‘acquired ego-priapism syndrome’, I think it is safe to say now the diagnosis has been confirmed… AEPS, pronounced APES, as in ‘apes’ cowardly male behaviors… Nancy is the surprise add to the list of war criminals the USA is obliged to prosecute according to our constitution’s ‘supremacy clause’ …“any treaty made shall be the supreme law of the land” unless of course Obama is going to jettison either our constitution or the torture treaty the USA is signed to So, constitutional law professor Obama, as Attorney General Holder plows through his medieval Anglo-Saxon medicine chest, looking for remedies to treat the migraine of a plausible ‘writ of mandamus’ in his forced grand jury referrals and preparation of criminal indictments under the torture treaty, did you really want to protect Pelosi from war crimes culpability like Pelosi protected Bush from impeachment (suddenly, totally understanding Pelosi was covering her own war criminal ass) And to the question of pardons, how fortunate a person is innocent until proven guilty under the USA legal practice, meaning Obama cannot constitutionally pardon anyone prior to a trial and conviction House Republican leader John ‘boner’ Boehner has described a report pointing to the dangers of right wing soldiers as a future threat to domestic security offensive and called on the government to apologize to veterans. As a veteran, I call on Representative ‘Boner’ to apologize to all Americans for the acts of our future Timothy McVeighs represented in un-prosecuted special operations war criminals being released back into our society My ‘bozo boner’ awardees, whose political lies and/or rhetorical stupidities can often be found in my blogs, in order of lie or stupidity’s magnitude: Barak Obama (to Turkish Parliament “USA is not at war with Islam”), George Bush (”People who are allowed to worship freely in society, are people who are going to be peaceful citizens” as our Christian extremist led military pursues holy war he started), Supreme Court Justice Alito (”Marauding Indians” in a firearms decision, OMG, Geronimo!), Senator Kit Bond in a Senate hearing, (”you can’t believe what you read” about CIA torture), Attorney General Eric Holder (too many to recite), Nancy Pelosi, Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton (because I think the ‘girlz’ who behave like ‘boyz’ deserve to make the ‘boyz’ list Closet republican morality disclaimer, also known as the Senator Larry Craig clause: for the purposes of this audience, the term “boner” is the first (1) given in the Oxford Dictionary, however any Barney Frank-o-philes are permitted to imagine it is the second (2), in which case any prurient lampoons should be ‘tasteful’

boner |ˈbōnəәr| noun 1 informal a stupid mistake. 2 vulgar slang an erection of the penis. ORIGIN after House Republican leader John ‘Boehner’ the quintessential prick Here is how a ‘Barney Frank-o-phile’ (‘hitting’ on the liberals) lampoon could work: Instead of walking out on Iranian President ‘mouthy’ Mahmoud, at the UN forum on racism, when ‘mouthy’ truthfully called Israel “cruel and repressive”, why didn’t one of those western diplomats, instead of disappearing like cowards, stand up and shout out “Fair enough, now, what I want to know, is there a ‘boner’ involved when Iran puts it’s women to death, for adultery, by stoning?” Of course that would make worldwide headlines and Iran would realize it had REALLY ‘pulled a boner’ Here is how a ‘closet republican morality’ (‘nailing’ the conservatives) lampoon could be ‘pulled off’ The UN Rapporteur on racism has stated “defaming religion” should be dis-allowed, wow, I suppose that means the office in Rome called the congregation for the doctrine in the faith will be ‘coming out’ of the closet, to be called the holy inquisition again, and anyone who stands up to torture will be charged by the prosecutor Gonadius [worse than ‘pig’ Latin, eh? gonad + ius], with the crime of having ‘pulled a boner’ (of course that can only mean ‘made a stupid mistake’) Subtle difference, you think? And of course, there is always the morality neutral or ‘ethics free’ example (getting digs into the ‘I’m in it for me’ sociopath public figure), in this case a ‘half-truth’ : Rahm Emanual: “The Republicans are the party of no ideas”, neglecting to mention he is the ‘wormtongue’ (wet tongue?) in the ear of a Democratic president with braindead ideas And so it all goes to: “Know thyself” –the pedophile Socrates, executed for “corrupting the youth of Athens” It seems fitting this should degenerate into a legal treatise designed to constitutionally box in the ‘boyz’, and as such, is apropos to pick on Chief Justice John ‘boy’ Roberts, who went from ‘Waltons’ family lawyer to chief executive at the violent pornography industry of Anglo-Saxon law John ‘boy’s’ court had been recently accused of ‘pulling a boner’ [a cowardly legal decision] by much more principled conservative judges than the dwarves on the conservative wing of this Supreme Court… who have been accused by those more principled men of legal ‘mealy mouth’ in a recent ‘right to bear arms’ or 2nd Amendment case, and called it a right wing Roe v Wade for mincing around the ‘hard’ facts Just like the all male Roe court could not ‘bear’ to give women the 4th amendment’s protection of “privacy in their papers” :

104

‘Dear diary, today I had to choose between raising a child in poverty for a father I’ve discovered would never be there for us, or terminating…’ No differently, John ‘boy’s’ court could not call a spade a spade and admit the founders meant “the right of the people to bear arms” to be a clause against a coup of the power corrupt over our rule of law… this could have been intelligently addressed by BEING HONEST and calling the right to bear arms what our constitution meant it to be, a militia of the people that does NOT shoot “marauding Indians” at casinos, giving states a bit of control over assault rifles (that actually cannot be constitutionally taken from the people so long as the 2nd Amendment and a modern arms military both exist), like one assault rifle per militia member which is any person of good legal standing in the community, no record of domestic violence and with brains enough to pass an 8th grade constitutional ethics test, weapon stays locked up in the home… and use of ANY firearm in a crime could consequently be made a statutory case of domestic treason for violating a fellow citizen’s civil liberties But naw, self serving cowards can’t pull their heads out from where the sun never shines, because the idea I just proposed would preserve our constitution AND DRAMATICALLY REDUCE the number of assault rifles and ALL other firearms on our streets as well as shut down the weapons exports to Mexican drug cartels, too bad that would hurt the gun lobby Now, where do you suppose John ‘boy’ will come out on torture? Will he allow prosecutions of his corporate class peers?? Since now days the 4th Amendment appears to only protect the privacy of the papers held as corrupt corporate class state secrets concealing crimes, the prognosis is not good, but I have an idea! Uncle Sam has this Latino dude named ‘Stare Decisis’ in his honky law library, he is the bouncer, all his work is about is, there should be stability and quiet in the case-law or, that had been the way it worked and so that is the way it generally should be Now John ‘boy’s’ honkies have been ganging up on this Latino dude recently, so Stare Decisis brings a knife to work to defend himself. Returning to the Silvergate nincompoop’s ‘let’s all duck responsibility with a honky defense’ rationale, I do believe the Latino dude can take out a certain Anglo-Saxon’s ass, that is, the whole idea surrounding ‘I knew it was wrong but thought it was legal’ as a legitimate ‘no criminal intent’ defense Here is how it could work: Anglo-Saxon right wingers (includes dark rye ‘cracker’ Clarence ‘anita’s bad hair day’ Thomas) like to kill people, that is easy to see in John ‘boy’s’ conservatives putting retarded and insane people to death… and honky states like to force anti-psychotics into defendants so they become fit at trial to understand why they are going to die for something they could not understand when they did it So if John ‘boy’s’ ‘boss-hog’ federal court has let those state decisions stand, bingo, suddenly Stare Decisis, the Latino dude, whips out his knife! And he goes beserk from being picked on!!

105

The Supreme Court takes anti-psychotics to understand what is happening in the real world and the Anglo-Saxon no criminal intent ‘I knew it was wrong but thought it was legal’ defense is knife wounds like the slashers in the movies make (oh, our lovely 1st Amendment) across their blindfolded bitch’s Anglo-Saxon body of no criminal intent law, Stare Decisis just cut her to pieces!!!!! Your averaged IQ of 90 could puzzle through the shit in that process’ result- Whoa, check it out, THAT BITCH IS DEAD!!!!!!! With eyes mere slits, Chief Justice John Roberts proposed Bozo had passed the Federalist Society rite of initiation and be awarded membership. Bozo, feeling his ingratiation with the fascists would further his career opportunities, and therefore smugly pleased, sat for his official photo on a tall stool wearing the borrowed Federalist Society member George W Bush’s dunce cap which was actually a modified Klu Klux Klan headdress, presented by a Grand Wizard With Bozo’s middle finger shoved up his nose as though digging deep for a booger, the preferred pose of society members for photos, John Roberts, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito pulled from beneath their robes Thompson Sub-Machine guns, stolen for the occasion at Dick Cheney’s direction by Federalist Society house niggers Clarence Thomas and Condoleezza Rice: from the Al Capone exhibit at the FBI museum The Thompson drum clips having been filled with unjacketed aluminum alloy hollow point 45 caliber ammunition provided by Xe Corporation, the three justices fired precisely 150 rounds, at point blank range, into the biggest buffoon ever to claim expertise in law as a member of the California State Bar Association A few hours later, the night shift janitor with a ‘four zero’ security clearance who’d been told to bring a body bag to work, was grossed out. Bozo had been basically pureed, his remains little more than a large congealing puddle with a few big chunks

106 How George Carlin Got Jesus Kicked Out Of Heaven Napi writes a skit for the Daily Show but the coward Jon Stewart who’d kid gloved Obama, mincing around the facts and avoiding the hard questions, rejects the script Carlin: So, where are we? Jesus: The Native Americans call it the ‘Wolf Trail’ Carlin: Well, anyway, I like it better here by the campfire Jesus: Verily Carlin: So, how come you never returned? Jesus: I did, many times. But on every occasion, I was killed by Christians in a pogrom before I could accomplish anything. So, I tried to return as a woman and even that didn’t work Carlin: What happened? Jesus: Maybe you haven’t heard the joke.. a girl was murdered and all the Jews were freaked out and figured they’d soon be dead, because it was assumed she was a Christian. Then the rabbi came running out shouting ‘Wonderful news! The murdered girl is Jewish!’ Carlin: That’s not funny Jesus: Well, when you’re still hanging on the cross, nailed up by the church after 2,000 years, it has its humorous aspect. Just like the body parts of the saints, cut to pieces and scattered in churches everywhere, that’s why you don’t see them in heaven. And the Indians stuffed on shelves, locked in the basement of the Smithsonian. It’s a little bit like Native American humor, it takes some getting used to Only the REALLY BAD people were in Hell, Richard Nixon and L Ron Hubbard were anally banging the same plastic blow-up doll of Condoleezza Rice.. and hoping she would arrive before they’d have to share with Kissinger.. meanwhile the CIA was exploiting pedophelia in the Church with blackmail- using the confessional to pass instructions on destroying secular justice to corrupt religious judges- on the earth Jesus could not get back to- “give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s” notwithstanding Satan’s lack of humor and the company he kept, precluded George and Jesus lodging there, now that they’d been evicted from above. So they were camped out in the Milky Way hoping Mel Brooks and Lewis Black would wander by Jesus: The new Mel Brooks comedy ‘Fell Behind’ is GREAT Carlin: The rip on Tim LeHaye? A real riot!

107 Jesus: Absolutely, what a gem! I wish I could grab Mel by the ears and kiss him right between the eyes for that. You’ve seen it? Carlin: Oh yes! what was your favorite part? Jesus: When the Hutaree Militia arrived to save the President and discovered he was Black and named Hussein, my god that tore me up.. it was better than the scene from Blazing Saddles when the Black Sheriff saved himself from the welcome committee, I was laughing to tears. Which part did you like? Carlin: Sarah Palin as President of Romania, you know the scene, Vlad the Impaler rising from the dead and coming at her with the dildo.. and how she pretended to faint so she could take it without being unfaithfulJesus: My god, that brought me to tears too.. Marilyn Monroe and Jane Mansfield had been discussing who is hot, George or Jesus, playing a fantasy game of ‘draw straws’ just to see Most the Pentecostals and nearly all the conservative Catholics were in Re-Education Camp Purgatory, the two Marys were re-teaching Sunday Sex Ed School there, Virgin Birth was a huge embarrassment, as well Jesus relationship to Magdalene had to be straightened out and it was the joke cracked at this, had caused Jesus and George’s exile Carlin: Millions said you were coming, were you wearing a condom? Jesus: [laughing] There’s no right answer.. which began a fight between those Catholics and Pentecostals who were NOT in ReEducation Camp Purgatory. There WAS a right answer, eviction for the controversial personalities Subsequently, George and Jesus, with time on their hands, LOTS OF TIME, were having a philosophical discourse Carlin: So, where are the Jews? Jesus: Waiting to be saved from themselves, but it’ll never work.. uh, George, would you do me a favor? Carlin: Certainly, what’s that? Jesus: Do you see that pry bar over there? ..

108 The Old Native Circle Napi explains to Spotted Buffalo what it had meant for a man to be in a matriarchal culture Before the Christians, all of the male children were educated by the grandmothers to age ten. These were the women who inculcated the cultural values to everyone, it was the entire culture in the hands of these women. By this time of age ten the male children were exiled from women’s society but already they were armed with lethal weapons and would lay down their lives for these women without hesitation. In fact they were the last line of defense between any attacking enemy and the women who were the seed stock of the nation, the repository of knowledge that determined everything it meant to be a Blackfoot. And it was not only the Blackfoot, but this was the case for most of the North American peoples. You see this clearly in the Oral History. When the Blackfeet had effectively destroyed the Sarcee as a tribe, right down to wiping out the ‘Mosquitos’, the child warriors, all of the male Sarcee beings had been killed. They became afraid of what they had done because no one has the right to destroy any expression of the Creation altogether. Our wise people counseled among themselves. If the Sarcee went extinct, this could be the Blackfeet fate as well. What had been done was of the most serious of wrongs. So the Sarcee women were given both protection and Blackfoot husbands, to reconstitute that tribe. And today the Sarcee people speak their own Athbascan language rather than Blackfoot. They still have their own Oral History and creation story. This is the result of the Women educating the male children. But they did have to adopt the Blackfeet ‘Okan’ ceremony to protect their new men, because these Blackfoot men had come from a different world, distinct from the Sarcee world, and that had to be recognized. And so the Sarcee nation went on and had survived. The old Blackfoot world was divided between the women, the men, and the androgyny. What I mean by that is everything was ordered around the natural process observed in the world surrounding them. This order was and is, first and primarily feminine. This is reflected in the social order and the language. The oldest term for the highest possible chief is a Ninawaki. A Ninawaki is only a woman, never a man. In today’s Blackfoot language the word is the shorter ‘Ninaki’ and means both Boss and Wife. This is the primary authority of the ancient Blackfoot world. And this idea goes to the cultural attitude of women as the disciplinarians: as in the very old Blackfoot proverb “The grandmothers carry the switch.” The earth is a woman and women are the hosts. Men are the guests. This is reflected in today’s Blackfoot world when a man has been thrown out of his house by his wife and that is it. It is divorce. The man can do nothing more than state the fact of the matter as in the modern Blackfoot expression “She gave me the boot.” By cultural law, that act of eviction must be honored. So the men had to be careful not to disrespect their wives. They had to live honorably in relation to the governing female principles. The feminine aspect of the androgyny is reflected in the customs of marriage, the social organization and the language. And not least, in the men themselves. The language is key to this understanding. There is what has been misunderstood by the western linguists as multiple genders but in fact this is nothing more than varying degrees of androgyny. Primary male gender is rare. You see this in the Trickster, a

109 male clown or a man who behaves like an idiot, in the Sun, some of the sky gods, the Eagle perhaps on occasion, not much more. Primary female gender is more common than primary male gender but none the less, is the exception rather than the rule. Women themselves when single, or alone for instance out digging roots, the mothers with cubs, the woman chief Ninawaki, the wife Ninaki. However it is the androgyny which, in varying degrees, is the most common expression. Men are in nearly all cases androgynous, this is the vehicle for them to know what it means to live in Human Dignity. As warriors, you might expect the reverse to be true, but in this case they are actually more female than male, especially with the ritual paint as expressions of the matriarchal world they represent in war. All war is made on behalf of the women who nursed them for this role the first ten years of their lives. They were literally trained to think by and to think like, the women. The evidence is striking. What the Whiteman could never see, and it was jumping out at him in the many photos of history, is in the feminine appearance of the men. Just take another look. These were not effeminate men, not at all in the western sense, yet they were very feminine men in personal expression that by and large were not in any sense gay. These native men were truly psychologically androgynous beings, a missed point altogether in Anthropology. It was simply a phenomena of Human culture that was beyond the framework of the western mentality. The Whites missed it altogether. These were most typically heterosexual men of a feminine persona, high honor and a sense of feminine dignity that reflects in the frontier wisdom of the Whites: that it was by far smarter to simply kill an Indian, outright, rather than insult him. These people did not mess around, life is not a game. Rather life is an important opportunity to live a personal evolution of service to all that is holy, beginning with one’s relationship to the Earth, the great mother. Because the Whites could not see the source of the fundamental values inculcated in these people, that matriarchal principles underpinned a psychology with mental structures differing altogether from their own, they never saw how the Native government functioned. Rather they projected their own masculine psychological images on the native proceedings and came up with an utterly perverted interpretation. The women’s secret societies were in fact the crucible and drive in the Native evolutionary experience. They posed to the men the problems they wanted solved and told them to get it done. When the men met and compared notes, it could not be missed when every son, husband and father with status and voice in the men’s council had heard the identical message, individually, from the women. Having been devolved upon to take action to seek a means to an end the women had specified, the men discussed. The women had already had their say, they now only need witness what they had demanded be resolved, in actuality resolved. This was the primary means of problem solving in these cultures. The women identified what they wanted. The men were entrusted with bringing that desire to fruition. These women raised their men to be demigods, to be mental, ethical and physical Titans without fear. They did a good job of it. That the women gave unselfishly, totally caring for these men, in return service to these amazing beings trained from infancy to lay their lives down without question for these women says everything. It was a circle, reciprocal.

110

This event was in fact totally invisible to the White men who could only see the superficial aspect of the men’s public meeting and counseling and draw incorrect conclusions from this surface event, unaware of the inner dynamics these women had provided to devise and implement a brilliant system. But one only need look again at the photos of history, in the case of the Blackfoot, you see the men in the circle of ceremony seated beside their higher chiefs, their ‘Sits Besides Them Wives’, the “Ninawaki.” How is it the wives are suddenly the highest form of chief, a “Ninawaki”, rather than the mere boss of a man in family, a “Ninaki”? Because it had become the formal, proper word, a greater context, in ceremony. Look at the photos. She is wearing a chief’s bonnet. She ‘sits beside him’ as a matter of her place and privilege is granted by women, not men. He does not have much to say about that. And by gosh, he had better do right by her. Because her peers, all of the Ninawaki, determine his status among the men, just as much as these women had decided her right to be seated beside him. Now she has stepped up and cares for the Nation in the macro-cosmic sense of family. He is there because it is the men who are entrusted with carrying out that care and responsibility. First, all life is meant to be ceremony. This is the formal circle of council. It is a macro-inclusive circle of the Blackfoot world, it is an expression of world view. The world is constantly in a state of flux, a kind of fluidity that must be coordinated with, in order to know a stable existence in community. In this original sense, all ceremony is calibration and recalibration. The so-called opening ‘prayers’ are the inclusive acknowledgment and employment of the quantum reality energy strings that tie everything, ourselves inclusive, essentially all the expression of our integrated surrounding existence and reality, together. We are not to become separated in our own sight and intelligence from the greater intelligence of the mystery, the larger intelligent expression we know as reality. So this opening prayer is not a macro-cosmic communication in a local or finite sense, but a communication with a Gestalt expression in the Blackfoot world, one world of many intelligently expressed worlds which make up a greater cosmos. The Blackfoot family is a nucleus, that band’s council, a cell, the Blackfoot branch or division is an organ, the confederacy an organism. The mystery of our existing is a clockwork environment in which all must remain coordinated/calibrated to know a safe and intelligent experience. In this sense, the council is the Blackfoot world’s great expression of what it means to know survival. And all survival depends on, from the beginning, what it means to live in Human Dignity for the individual males: to be Niitssitapi, which is a female rooted expression. Without this sense of dignity which is actually an approach to life in relation to our surroundings, from the beginning, none of the expressions surrounding us will coordinate or make sense. Because all is related, all, everything, must be approached by these men in council with the greatest respect for this original law laid down for men to serve the women who represent the gift of our very lives. You must have LIVED this law, as in living personal ceremony, this will have in fact determined your seat determining law and status

111 Napi’s Final Lecture at University Napi was told he would not be invited back to teach again at Johannes Guttenberg University, the male hierarchal German university system was not in the business of promoting truth. Napi had simply been too open and honest to be invited back This week I wish to make a point about western education. Following on this past semester’s lecture “Original Sin is a Hate Crime”, I believe it germane to look at how for all of our ethno-centric bias, well, arrogance actually, pointing to education in a western world on the verge of blowing itself up with nukes (gee, the cold war over too!) produces leadership supporting planet ending technologies Reprise Robert Gates, recent past president of University of Texas [Austin] and his religious extremist generals, all with advanced college degrees, momentarily distracted from their ‘satanic’ enemies in the world of Islam while they again push war games in the face of a nuclear armed and extremely paranoid ‘godless’ communist North Korea. Bright minds, eh? And keeping things in balance on the other side of the globe, Israel taking over the West Bank as though it were the Sudetenland and carrying on 40+ years of ‘Kristallnacht’ against the Palestinian people, the president of Germany [who replaced a president forced to resign for a honest political statement: “Germany is in Afghanistan for economic reasons”] said this past week Germany “must support Israel at any cost”, never mind the Israelis are behaving like NAZIs. So, the president of Germany sounds like a neo-con along the lines of Michelle Bachman or Sarah Palin. Bright minds, eh? All of these people, whether American, German or Israeli, are the product of advanced educations in a system which has both supported and enabled planet threatening technologies and male hierarchal order which depend on weapons sales and aggression to either pursue their policies and/or prop up their economies. Bright minds, eh? Now, all of this got me to thinking about my own short experience as a professor at Johannes Guttenberg University and how it happened I could not be invited back to teach again at the law school. All I actually did was to break nearly every rule and decorum of the male hierarchal German University system by applying ancient Native American educational principles to 1) entertain and 2) teach while entertaining, with the end result my product [student knowledge] rated “excellent” and “without a single student complaint” about the quality of the learning [I asked the program administrator who’d brought me in] and consequently the program I’d taught under given to different administrator and rules changed so I could never teach at the law school again. Bright minds eh? The consequence of these attitudes and stratified hierarchal rules, lead to universities resembling inbred genetics. Requiring a degree [a type of forced indoctrination] to teach, excluding sharp intelligence combined with unique skill, precludes some of the brightest minds in the world teaching and insures mistaken ideas go unchallenged and will be passed to the next generation of academics. Bright minds, eh?

112 When I came to the university to see this classroom for the first time, visit with my boss in the law department and check on some important protocols, i.e., would a self educated Honky raised Indian in the Rocky Mountains be thrown out of a university in Europe for basically being himself? A matter of personality As I entered the Law department and traversed the halls to the department chair’s office, this Professor Witch-Doctor gathered stunned looks of disbelief from the rather straight looking lawyer academic males and friendly laughs from the women, I wondered what that said about life in academia I have known my Boss for years, relating to past Human Rights and International Law work as an investigator in Indian Country and in his office I had questions relevant to current affairs such as in regards to my stand-up comedian nature and my new professorship, could I make the point to my students the name of the law professor who composed the Bush administration memos authorizing torture has inspired a change in the spelling of the English Language expression: ‘Fuck Yoo’ Also, I established I do not own a tie and was not about to acquire one. I believe the tactful language I had used in negotiating this important parameter was “I don’t believe I could manage a tie.” I was duly assured casual clothes would be fine, afterall, I am Professor Witch-Doctor, having never subjected myself to PhD imprisonment in any ivory tower In this Witch-Doctor’s Native world, life’s little surprises are ascribed to the trickster, and when we encounter these events, we are supposed to pay attention because life is trying to tell us something. Such as the time I had been wandering about the Arizona desert, picked up a Horned Toad for a pet to give to a child, slipped the creature into my jacket pocket and it had already slipped my mind by the time the day warmed up and I tossed the jacket into the back of my car and forgot about it for a week Subsequently driving down a road my heart nearly blew its way out the top of my head when some cold scaly alien suddenly was attached to the right side of my neck With the missed photo opportunity of a lifetime from the look on my face, I am sure, I grasped the horned toad and pulled it free of my neck and into my line of vision and started to laugh somewhat insanely. I stopped my car, walked the creature back into the desert apologizing profusely and set it free. Life had just told me in a moment of otherwise unfounded terror to leave Horned Toads alone. In the Native view even such a small and harmless creature has real power These many years later, I got to be the Horned Toad. On my way to university appointment, I spryly hopped onto an escalator at the train station, was quickly sandwiched by people front and back and then noticed the little woman in a nun habit standing next to me staring at the new Professor Witch-Doctor with an expression indicating if she could leap off a twenty story building to escape me, there would be no hesitation… my camouflage bandanna and shades can do that?? I had forgot, I looked down at my t-shirt with a cameo portrait of the devil and the name “Mephisto”

113 I did not wink at her (oh, the temptation was great) but merely wondered at people who are prisoners of fear… with my life dedicated to non-violence, peace and Human Rights In your student email to me has been “you showed me there is more than one way to learn at university”, “I’d take your class again just for fun!” and [I liked this one a LOT, from a woman] “your class was so refreshing after all of the suited and stiffed up law professors.” These students, my students, you are the truly bright minds I suppose when I have survived life’s present international intrigues, the attempted assassination of myself, and achieve fame, perhaps the university could consider awarding me a honorary witch-doctorate of satire, humanities and law, and I could enjoy teaching here again ;o]

114 Carrie Napi recalls the other side of his split childhood, brought to memory by his experiences and sees a resemblance to the Native American boarding school legacy When I was in fourth grade I used to run away and hide from the adults I lived with because they beat me badly and also severely hurt me emotionally. It was a childhood of actually having my face spit in, my neighborhood nickname was “The Maggot” And not only terrible beatings with belts, and sticks from my parents, the kids that were bullies knew if they beat me up, my parents would do nothing about it or perhaps beat me up for getting beat up, the other kids thought that was hilarious. The only love or friends I’d know were my pets that I was only able to keep long enough to bond with, and then they were ALWAYS taken away and disposed of for some imaginary wrong blamed on me (as well it seemed I was responsible for every bad thing my biological father ever did, except he was actually a good guy I was not allowed to see except rarely and not for very long) But I had this safe place, a magical bamboo grove where I was sometimes able to escape and be safe, because no one else ever knew about a hidden room deep in thick bamboo that only I knew where to find One time I escaped to my bamboo hideaway and what seemed like some incredible event of magic and power happened. I found a girl also hiding there, I knew her, because we went to the same school, I was in fourth, and she was in third grade. Carrie was really very pretty and became to me incredibly beautiful I did not understand, for many years, the ‘why’ of what happened to us in the bamboo. We had known adult lovemaking. Carrie knew and had shown me this Ron had quickly, quietly negotiated the path to his secret room in the bamboo thicket and surprised a girl there alone, Carrie. She looked frightened but overcame her fright when she recognized Ron, they knew each other from the school playground. Ron was surprised as well Carrie asked “Do you like girls?” Ron, remembering Lori, his one true friend, replied “Yes” Carrie then said “I know what some boys like” Carrie showed Ron, in the beginning, how to kiss with the tongue, it was a beautiful sensation.. they were lying on the soft mat of bamboo leaves, Carrie had then removed her panties and let Ron see under her dress Carrie asked “Would you like to touch me there?” Ron felt warm all over his body, unlike anything he’d ever felt, as he touched and then felt, Carrie’s vagina, evoking indescribable sensation..

115 Carrie then had said “Will you let me touch yours?” Her cool touch, gentle, softly caressing was unlike anything Ron had ever known, Carrie said for Ron to close his eyes and keep them closed, as she continued and placed Ron inside herself while straddling from above. And then she was all over him, completely covering Ron who surrendered everything solely to feeling. Carrie kept her hands covering Ron’s eyes throughout these eternal moments and, Ron was suddenly very, very dizzy, as though he were passing outRon thought “I’m dying!” but must have said it aloud because he heard Carrie, as though from very far away: “Silly, you are not” Carrie had then lifted herself off of Ron and shortly after said “You can open your eyes now.” There was a faint rustle of bamboo. Ron opened his eyes, slowly Carrie was gone I did not think back to this time of what seemed like incredible beauty (or remember it at all for two these very badly hurt children) until recently, and immediately realized Carrie’s father or someone close had been raping her I only know we needed each other in those moments, and loved each other very much, because there was, as children needing only love, beauty and trust, not ever one mean thing happened between us when we would meet in the bamboo. Both of us were sweet and gentle to the other, and kept the others secret and we were never found out But after only a couple of months and a few encounters, Carrie’s family moved away Initially, when recalling Carrie these many years later, I thought I must have been in love with her, although this love should never have happened, for nearly all of my life, even if I did not recall this event for many, many years I’d met a woman that looks very close to what Carrie must have looked like when she had grown up, very beautiful. And I saw a lot of hurt in this woman, in her eyes, but also a deeply beautiful spirit, at least it seemed so, to me I believed I’d fallen in love with her, because incredible emotions came up from deep, an indescribable grief, but somehow mixed with incredible beauty, I wanted to cry and in a way I did, for months, I lost weight (a lot of weight) my belly had what seemed non-stop adrenal or elevator feelings, and a great infatuation I believed was love for this woman nearly overwhelmed my mentality I was never mean to her, upset, yes, at times, because she was in a position to and did some brutal things to my emotions, rather deliberately, it seems. But I could never hate her or stay upset at her. And then I’d remembered Carrie from my childhood After this recollection, I’d the thought perhaps with this later woman it was not actually love, as much as my heart had opened to grieving for myself and Carrie

116 For the purpose of this ‘novel’ I have named the grown woman “Christine.” A literal ‘femme fatale’ who profiles for a sexually abused childhood manifesting as misandry in adult behaviors, it seemed she’d set out to destroy me, not only herself with poor or arrogant life choices but in the end, for people who genuinely care, adversity only causes us to grow She will always have my friendship and respect, were she ever to face what she’d done rather than only excuse herself with self-pity for what she’d been through, and get back in contact The raped girl Carrie from my childhood, on the other hand, appears to have been my lifetime guardian angel: in relation to imprinting my mind with eternal gratitude for women, and must be why against all odds I’d not become an abusive man. This points to the paradox noted by ‘Mephisto’ in Goethe’s Faust: "..a part of that power that always the evil will, and yet ends doing the good"

117 Epilogue On the 5th of July 2010 I spent about half an hour visiting with two very polite regional policemen [Mossos] at my door. What I said and what the policemen said and, what I did not say, causes reflection Ostensibly, the police were looking for someone else and I was able to truthfully state I had no knowledge of the wanted person. But in the course of the conversation and our interactions, one thing became very clear. The [professionally courteous and pleasant] police were here to take my information I made no secret of the fact I was unregistered in Spain, and I made it clear I had no intention of registering with immigration or applying for residency. The police copied my passport information, questioned me about further details that would confirm my identity, reported in with their radio my information and had me sign a statement to the effect I had lived in my present apartment “for more or less one year, to be provided to the judge” who wanted to know who lived at this apartment I told the policemen I doubted I was officially wanted for “writing wicked political satire” and simply felt at present time I had no better place to stay, that I am a well behaved guest in their country, I do not advantage of their social services and spend only my own money. The police stated to me they did not think my stay in Catalonia under the circumstance would be a problem, and they left But my stay was a problem I am a de facto stateless person. I did not stay in Spain, and do not stay anywhere abroad by choice, but because of criminal elements in United States institutions that had attempted a process to trump up charges on me at home but failed because I was very careful in certain respects. There came a point I felt I had to leave, when there was real danger of my being assassinated for uncovering attempted false prosecution and other crimes by powerful people in certain United States institutions and I live in unofficial but very real exile The Spanish [and German] authorities [unofficially] already know this. This circumstance of exile is what I did not mention to the police, because it could begin an official process I am presently ill equipped to deal with. When elements of the most powerful government in the world set out to assassinate their own citizens with rogue intelligence agencies or a large rogue element within those intelligence agencies, one thing is certain. What has been a mere inconvenience of living under surveillance in exile, to survive, becomes an official inquiry relating to assassination, the machinery of state begins to turn and in international relations, the American machinery of state is quite straightforwardly, dishonest. There is no way I can depend on my own nations ‘democratic’ institutions to be forthcoming in my circumstance My ‘crime’ as pertains to all of this sordid source of mass murder in humanity and its supporting personalities, is simply to be uncompromisingly ethical and refuse to buy into any political lies, and to correct myself if I discover I’d had been tricked into any misperceptions. I call a spade a spade. I called a spade a spade when I uncovered a criminal ring working in government to circumvent laws for corporations, American

118 Petrofina and CHEVRON, and delivered an un-refutable documented report on that criminal rings activities up the proper channels. That did not work, the report which should have triggered a much larger investigation that sent people to jail was quashed by both the appropriate Inspector General, and then the FBI to whom it was subsequently provided. I recall when working the case having read government legal briefs authored by John Yoo and Jay Bybee, their reasoning was no better then, working the inside of government for CHEVRON, when Condoleezza Rice was a CHEVRON Board Director, than their legal briefs for Rice when they had all moved on to extraordinary renditions and torture under Bush/Cheney. There were deliberately counterfeited opinions and decisions taken, in a case where cheating the laws on the inside for CHEVRON had been busted red handed My report was filed in 1991, exposing a deliberately falsified Environmental Impact Statement to expedite drilling in the Lewis & Clark National Forest in a conspiracy that reached from the Lewis & Clark Forest headquarters, at Great Falls Montana, through the Forest Service Northern Region One at Missoula, all the way to the Department of Agriculture in Washington DC and included lying to Congress by top officials in hearings on the application of the concerned laws. The report is called “Report to the U.S.D.A. Inspector General” concerning exploratory drilling in the so called “Badger-Two Medicine” area of the Lewis and Clark National Forest. The report was damning enough, despite it being quashed, it backed CHEVRON down, no one in industry or government dared pursue the drilling, particularly after I had finally, personally hand delivered it to the Chief of the Forest Service Floyd Thomas while telling him his employees were criminals and the report was not going away so long as the area in question was under threat of development John Yoo was present when I did that and he flipped out and even managed to have an administrative law judge threaten me on record, as I had caught up with the Forest Service Chief during a break at a disciplinary hearing where Yoo was part and parcel of pushing a neighboring Forest Supervisor, Ernie Nunn, out of his job as boss of the Helena National Forest. What was obvious to me was Nunn being forced out because he was too friendly to laws protecting the environment- but that was not my case. Because CHEVRON did subsequently back off drilling in the Lewis & Clark forest, I closed our case, we [the Mueller Law Offices] had satisfied our clients [The Blackfoot Indian "Brave Dogs" warrior society] with stopping the drilling, our job was not the FBI’s work pursuing the criminal acts exposed in the process [which the FBI refused to do] Now all that might have been water under the bridge except for extraordinary coincidence some years later, medically retired, I’d moved from Montana to New Mexico What happened subsequently has proved to me that truth is stranger than fiction Having promised my [accelerated] home schooled youngest he could attend High School, I looked into local schools. I was not investigating crimes, that was the furthest thing from my mind when I did a small bit of research on local schools. There was a small local charter with an advanced program and I enrolled him there, not really paying attention to or looking any deeper than the surface at the facts of the school’s founding

119 Well guess what. The school was founders included professional friends/associates of Rice, Cheney and Rumsfeld. Neo-con control freaks not only founded the East Mountain High School, they ran it like a personal fiefdom in violation of nearly every civil rights law you can imagine and that is only scratching the surface My kid, meticulously educated in social dangers of drugs and consciously dedicated to avoiding drugs, was relentlessly harassed by the fundamentalist Christian school nurse over drug use, a letter from an eye doctor concerning allergies could not serve to convince her he was clean. We had been meticulously smeared by the neo-cons in the community. Under that social pressure and absolutely unfair disciplinary harassment, cultural harassment, and other pressures, the kid promptly went from effortless “Highest Honors” first semester, to alienated and failing. He was forced to retake Algebra he had completed at home because he made technical mistakes on a computerized assessment he did not understand how to use, even though he did well on the school’s Algebra final exam as an alternative [by his teacher] Algebra assessment prior to forced to take the class by administration, nothing was allowed to be considered at the level he was actually at .. he was forced into a humiliating ‘dumbed down’ program We were basically harassed out of the school for the simple fact of who we are Nothing my kid could do or contribute was good enough even though more often than not surpassing his age group by far. His required community service credits were highly advanced and for the longest time disallowed, anything we did was made a deliberate nightmare to get credit. It cost my kid his view of the world, he went from kind, generous and caring with a wonderful outlook on life, to a kind, generous, and caring person, they could not kill that in him, but also cynical about his world and its possibilities and absolutely alienated to the high school environment. He did not begin to recover himself until he turned 16 and could legally enroll in community college, which he was academically prepared for when he was 14. He was deliberately made to pay for my having enrolled him in East Mountain High School. Two years of his life and his world view trashed, methodically and purposefully, and that is only a tiny fraction of what we experienced I investigated and documented the entire business, with collaborating evidence pointing to pattern civil rights abuses by the school and named witnesses for two liberal members of the school’s governing council, one of them conducted his own investigation into the matter, I was expecting they would do the right thing. Boy, was I wrong. Investigating Governing Council member Jim Healy was amazed at what he found but the school’s reputation and survival were more important to him that doing the right thing by meeting the problems head-on. He basically asked me to not blow the cover on the school’s history of behavior [in an email] Governing Council member David Walters was more insidious, he met me privately, acknowledging the un-refutable stream of information I had fed members of the school’s governing council, mentioned he was a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and flat out warned me not to involve lawyers To make a long story short, my kid was off to college, I bailed out to Europe and three months later there was an attempt on my life that very narrowly missed, I was

120 closely stalked by a teacher from the school, Vince Langan, the would be hit man working with accomplices that I believe included people working for the Bernalillo County Sheriff. Langan’s “Corporate America” career, which entered a teaching phase only later in life, profiles for CIA. This initial attempt to take me out could only have happened with the assistance of the FBI providing knowledge of my whereabouts [accessing my banking records with a 'National Security Letter'] because I broke their ambush at the location of the Automatic Teller Machine I’d been using, the place they had waited for me. Having followed my escape and locating my place of residence subsequently, within ten days another attempted hit, my having been fingered as a gay MOSSAD agent or something equally evil and perverse to radical Lebanese Arabs in Berlin, the Arabs sorted out [with my very collected thinking and life on the line motivation] that it was their new “Palestinian” buddy who’d fingered me was actually the MOSSAD, I doubt he was alive long at all ["The Israeli must be killed!"] after I last saw him hustled off the into the underground by the group which had deliberately waited for me there. A few weeks later a silenced bullet narrowly missed me, punching a hole in the car I was walking past on a deserted street. By this time I’d put out a literal “just follow me around and watch” message to German law enforcement and I think it is the almost certainly dead “Palestinian” [MOSSAD] in Berlin had gotten serious interest in paying attention to what began tracking me in the Fall of 2007. That European law enforcement will have certainly recorded, among other events, the Sabrina DaSousa led CIA team that tried to take me out in Weisbaden the following year, and transferred to Spanish authorities surveillance taking in the subsequent Gary Berntsen led team [former CIA, now contracting murders among other things] I surprised on camera [hotel surveillance video] and slipped away from in Spain this past February [2010], at a moment in time they could not make a move to make a hit on me So, where is the FBI? It would appear elements of that hallowed institution were part and parcel of gross violations framing me as a security threat, and mine and my kids lives and/or civil liberties mean nothing to them and, true to form, my having turned the table, instead of policing themselves, arresting their criminal agents, coming clean and meeting with me openly and upfront, mine is just another case of our Department of Justice using “State Secrets” to conceal crimes Why? I guess my life is not as important as keeping the people of the USA from discovering Council on Foreign Relations associated folk and their neo-con military/industrial corporate millionaire friends, in concert with America’s intelligence agencies, employ serial killer assassins [among other embedded agents] as teachers in America’s charter [and no doubt other] schools used for cover for a domestic spy program employed against ordinary Americans worthy of the old Soviet Union. This points to the potential or real value of [and willingness of Russia to ransom] 10 suburban middle class family spies, not to mention the FBI, Rice, Yoo and Bybee being part and parcel of a criminal ring [includes ordering murders] which has been ripping off our democracy for decades It was just time to let you all know in this circumstance if I am not safe at the hands of the USA and its allied intelligence agencies, none of you are. And it should be small surprise my experience has radicalized me to a dedication that will last to the end of my likely short life, against the corrupt process called “security” that is destroying any sense of our humanity. There are laws against everything that I have encountered

121 and those laws are violated by the corporate wealthy with impunity and that impunity has been initiated and exercised through my own nations “security” apparatus How this all pans out in the larger picture: Dick Cheney had, together with Don Rumsfeld’s cooperation, set up a worldwide political enemies murder ring (Seymour Hersh has so stated) when Cheney came into power and said there would be a “dark side” to policy the American people would never be appraised of. My own experience is, under cover of going after Al Qaida, the CIA operational sector went after people abroad with logistical support from the Department of Defense and has resorted to engaging allied intelligence to attempt what they had failed. In the USA the ‘Al Qaida’ program was implemented by the Defense Intelligence Agency with cooperation with criminal elements in the FBI and at the Department of Justice. Essentially, anti-terror programs have been implemented and used for cover tracking the neo-con’s political enemies for the purpose of murder I initially made Dick Cheney’s people to be murdered list for having previously uncovered CHEVRON Board of Directors using bought off federal employees working the inside of government to counterfeit compliance to environmental laws in pursuing decisions favorable to CHEVRON, with my initial documentation suppressed by both the United States Department of Agriculture’s Inspector General’s office and the Federal Bureau of Investigation. My follow-up work points to Condoleezza Rice, John Yoo and Jay Bybee at the center of criminal ring working for CHEVRON, producing a counterfeit environmental impact statement approving CHEVRON drilling in Blackfoot Indian treaty land called the Badger-Two Medicine area of the Lewis and Clark National Forest south of Glacier National Park and west of the Blackfeet Indian Reservation. My initial work uncovering this criminal conspiracy in 1991 was performed on behalf of the Mueller Law Offices for Blackfoot Indian Floyd Heavy Runner and his tribe’s “Brave Dogs Society.” This was the source of my problems in the USA when Bush/Cheney/Rice came into power, which I escaped narrowly and ultimately fled into exile Since, it becomes clear the Rice, Yoo and Bybee centered ring working for CHEVRON was a single cell in a much larger corporate organized crime network which includes numerous USA centered multi-national boards of directors and their allied and growing network of corporate mercenaries such as Blackwater, staffed by CIA operational sector veterans. The Blackwater ‘training program’ for the CIA which Dick Cheney had directly ordered not be disclosed to Congress, the one meant to kill anywhere in the world, was employed against myself as recently as summer 2008 with CIA officer Sabrina DaSousa a ‘trainee’ [her cover] team leader, that was in Weisbaden, Germany, while I was teaching at Johannes Guttenberg University across the river at Mainz. I narrowly escaped assassination in Weisbaden [where I was staying during this time] on several occasions, during which I spotted DaSousa and later was able to confirm her identity. DaSousa is wanted in Italy for an extraordinary rendition [kidnap] and it came out at her trial [in absentia] Condoleezza Rice was personally directing the extraordinary renditions program for the CIA [according to the former head of Italian military intelligence, a defendant] These people had tracked me to Spain after Germany, now employing professional mercenary corporations with Cheney and Rice out of government, ‘legend’ CIA

122 veteran Gary Berntsen led a team to Spain where I compromised their operation with superior tactics, identified and exposed Berntsen, and forced him to flee. Now it is all back in Germany with some familiar faces, and some new faces. It is interesting to me, if no surprise, how the neo-cons and MOSSAD cooperate in the spirit of ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ even though they despise one another and know the day is drawing nearer when they will be pitted against each other, one criminal extremist group against the other in an apocalyptic, epic battle centered on the remarkably similar apocalyptic extremism of three faiths who all share the same god, Judaism, Christianity and the ‘Mahdi’ sect of Shia Islam [the extremists in Iran] But rather than back off, despite my successes and enormous damage to these extremist allied criminal intelligence networks, they had simply kept coming on and I suppose this has to do with fears of how far I might penetrate and open the picture of what is really up with the neo-con criminal plans development and consolidation of power with their large criminal ring based inside of government. Well, here it is: The man controlling the USA’s nuclear trigger at the time of this writing is IranContra figure Robert Gates who was President George Bush Sr CIA Director and is Obama’s Secretary of Defense. Former intelligence officer for our military Joint Chiefs of Staff, Air Force Colonel L. Fletcher Prouty had predicted this day would come in his expose of the CIA operational sector “The Secret Team” [1973] Colonel Prouty tied the source of a CIA operational sector centered conspiracy to overthrow our republic to our nation’s corporate board rooms The military/CIA operational sector ‘secret team’ cell has consolidated power since 2001 by promoting senior members of the right wing religious extremist “Officers Christian Fellowship” into the top military slots over a period of the eight years of George W Bush in power, while passing over secular generals Colonel Prouty’s identified “Secret Team” is identical to “The Family” more recently written about by Harper’s Magazine investigative journalist Jeff Sharlet Robert Gates is “The Secret Team/ Family” man in charge of the USA executive branch at present time. Proactive [willing] ‘team/family’ members sitting in government at this time include Supreme Court Justices John Roberts, Antonin Scalia and Samuel Alito. All are tied to George Bush Sr, Robert Gates and Dick Cheney via Reagan Attorney General Ed Meese, Iran Contra and the Ed Meese inspired Federalist Society, where John Roberts is a steering [policy making] committee member. Dick Cheney’s top government lawyer as vice president, Shannen Coffin, is a close friend of John Roberts. Condoleezza Rice, Clarence Thomas and John Yoo all have strong Federalist Society ties. All of the above are ‘secret team/family’ with Justice Kennedy and playing ball with the Robert’s faction at the court Over at the Department of Justice, a Karl Rove conceived plan packed the entire department with neo-con lawyers under Bush for eight years. It is a right wing religious extremist criminal cesspool that routinely covers up crime with the ‘state secrets’ doctrine. Former Attorney General John Ashcroft, a rabid right wing Christian extremist who believes literally “Muslims are the children of Satan” is protected from his numerous criminal acts by former counsel for the CIA affiliated corporation ‘Chiquita Brands’, that is Obama Attorney General Eric Holder, with

123 Holder implicated in dirty business covering up Chiquita Brands associated crimes related to right wing death squads and former Columbian president Uribe FBI Director Robert Mueller is complicit in the cover-up of two murdered women, Thelma Colbert and Shannon Ross, women who happened to be Department of Justice attorneys investigating medicare fraud that was coming close to Bush protected stocks in an investigation of Novation Corporation. Bush Attorney General Alberto Gonzales, on whose watch the women were murdered in classic CIA covert operation style mimicking natural death, had belonged to the law firm that represented Novation, and a Bush brother sat on the board of a Novation subsidiary after those women were murdered and the medicare fraud investigation shut down by Gonzales. Three other women on the Novation fraud case were (1) resigned, (1) fired and (1) reassigned George Bush Sr was a CIA Director before he was vice president and then president, also an Iran-Contra figure, he had mentored Robert Gates CIA career for decades, from a young officer in the operational sector all the way to Gates becoming the only operational sector CIA veteran to direct the CIA, under Bush Sr. Nobody touches Bush protected anything, without CIA operational sector veterans and murder incorporated coming after them. George Bush Senior is the ‘Family Godfather’ and Robert Gates is his senior ‘capo.’ FBI Director Mueller is a mere foot soldier by comparison, Mueller merely carries out Bush ‘family’ orders. Cover-up of murdered U.S. Justice Department attorneys by the FBI is not a problem for ‘the secret team/family.’ Nor is cover-up of 9/11, America’s Reichstag fire hatched in corporate boardrooms a problem, but the murder of a Black president who did not play ball would be a BIG problem, bigger than had happened when JFK crossed the Allen Dulles ‘secret team/family’ run CIA Operational Sector [Dulles still called the shots in the operational sector after his CIA Director tenure, where he’d consolidated ‘Family’ power] over the related Bay of Pigs and JFK was murdered for that fact, but this is now, it is not 1963 and the American people are not 1930’s Germans If anybody were to doubt George Bush Senior is godfather of the CIA operational sector cell of the “Family” and this central “Family” cell has control of the USA, you only need know in December, 2010, this same former CIA director George Bush the Elder, mentor of former CIA director Robert Gates, was the senior member joined in a conference call when he’d authorized opening secret Swiss accounts to with-draw ONE-HUNDRED-THIRTY-FIVE-MILLION-DOLLARS to be transferred to the government of Nigeria in exchange for Nigeria agreeing not to press criminal theft charges against Dick Cheney particularly and Halliburton generally. Sitting in on that call were un-named members of the Obama administration according to well placed sources in Nigerian government. How is it George Bush Senior hold the keys to secret Swiss accounts with hundreds of millions of stolen dollars, or more likely hundreds of billions of stolen dollars and he not only is free from prosecution, Obama people in government sit in on his criminal business calls? This was all covered up in USA mainstream media by announcing a mere 7 million dollar fine of Halliburton [separate from the 135 million in restitution] People should be asking tough questions about just what is really going on in government and why Obama has reneged on nearly every promise he has made, not

124 only why the Obama Department of Justice refuses to prosecute Bush/Cheney for an eight year world-wide crime spree Meanwhile, over at the Department of Justice, when attempts to put me behind bars for things I’d not done had failed and I’d been counter-investigating, Cheney and Rice were desperate to keep a location on myself for the purpose of murder, and so began a process of framing me as a security threat, as I’d begun looking into strange events in my own circumstance which would ultimately track back to them. Valerie Caproni, a neo-con aligned senior lawyer at Justice authorized a ‘National Security Letter’ be issued for me behind the back of the FISA Court after the court had turned the FBI down because “the evidence is thin” and “goes to the subject’s right of free speech” when they’d tried to get a letter by proper channels by using some of my past essays, which among other things they did not like, expressed sympathy, not for Iran’s regime, but for Iran’s people who’d been abused for generations by CIA operational sector centered policies on behalf of corporate boardrooms Caproni issued the letter regardless of the court’s denial and I was located via my banking records and automatic teller machine use in Europe, and the game was on Accordingly, FBI director Mueller and criminal agents are complicit in the ongoing attempted murder of myself since, as these are known facts in the Federal Bureau of Investigation, as set out [with my name redacted] by the United States Department of Justice Inspector General to Congress and nothing has been done about ongoing attempted murder of myself, by USA authorities. This is particularly aggrieving because many FBI agents are fine, dedicated people determined to do the right thing and they all get smeared with the criminal paint by association. Meanwhile Caproni, working as though she’d never skipped a beat from Bush to Obama, is at the top of her game with pressuring the communications industry to come up with means to invade every aspect of our citizens privacy, most recently demanding FaceBook provide real time access to anyone’s mail she demands. I suppose she is thinking of me, but I’m not flattered, I doubt she is in any way beautiful based on her personality and associated criminal ugliness Still at the Department of Justice, crime not only continues, as in the FBI complicit ongoing attempted assassinations in my case, but rampant cover-up of crime goes on as well, with every ‘family’ criminal in the Bush regime protected by the Karl Rove conceived neo-con insurance policy packing the Department of Justice with Bush lawyers for eight years, down to appointing neo-con foot soldier-lawyers such as former judge and Attorney General Mukasey to investigate the criminal spree under Bush Accordingly, this is a Justice serving as a private law firm to protect John Ashcroft from a suit to which the Department of Justice is not a party, it is a Justice Department which let CIA operational sector officer Jose Rodriguez off the hook for destroying the water boarding tapes in violation of law, Rove’s insurance policy is how John Yoo and Jay Bybee were able to walk free after writing criminal memorandum authorizing torture in violation of every human rights law you can imagine, including those of the USA, and this is why present Attorney General Eric Holder is using the patently fraudulent [color of law or counterfeit law] ‘state secret’ doctrine to fight every attempt to bring the Bush regime criminals to court in the USA

125 and a John Roberts Supreme Court will uphold these frauds upon true justice and prove to the entire planet we have become a criminal state, through and through Meanwhile George W Bush had been re-elected in 2004 [pushed over the top] by reprogrammed Diebold computerized voting machine fraud with no paper trail and this is also how Ron Paul had been cheated out of the majority of his delegates in the 2008 Republican Party primary elections. Meanwhile, who’d sat on the board of a company developing computer software for voting machines? None other than Robert Gates. The only reason McCain/Palin were not ‘elected’ this way is, the fraud would have been too obvious with the mood of the country and wild disparity which would have resulted with the exit polls So the Robert Gates controlled nuclear trigger has everyone in the know leaping to the neo-con agenda in the name of Obama. The ‘Hope and Change’ administration are nothing more than a pack of blackmailed cowards This preceding is the tip of the iceberg, there are thousands of ‘secret team/family’ members throughout our government and the American corporate world, methodically growing via a plot born in American Christian fundamentalism when the ‘secret team/family’ was established in the 1930s John and Allen Dulles who rescued NAZI war criminals from justice were both early members, as was George W Bush’s grandfather, Prescott Bush, a NAZI sympathizer who assisted Hitler’s regime during World War Two and got away with it. In subsequent decades via CIA associated military programs and military associated religious organizations such as ‘Cadets for Christ’ and the ‘Officers Christian Fellowship’ the military branch of the ‘secret team/family’ has been grown, mentored and organized into cells with ultimate goal of controlling the nation’s nuclear arsenal independent of civilian control. That usurping of the nuclear arsenal has happened, at least in part, sometime prior to 2008 You know, it really doesn’t matter that Robert Gates and his religious extremist generals hold American nukes hostage or Condoleezza Rice can say “I’ve known Hillary for years, she is smart, she is tough and she is doing the right things” and it turns out Hillary pursues Robert Gates’ initiated policies in violation of any sense of common sense, decency or sanity or that Obama’s mother was actually a CIA agent Gates and his generals, and Rice and Clinton and their ilk are not gods, and Obama is not his mother. Americans and the world are not likely to stand by and let a repeat of 1930s history fused with 1960s history happen in the age of nuclear weapons were only the facts out in the open and courage of few leaders and law enforcement together with a few honest judges to back them, to burst this boil- with coming out in public and begin making arrests What really matters is, people should not be prisoners of fear because as soon as enough folk realize what is going on, the whole house of cards falls apart and that is when we can have real “Hope and Change.” My only problem with Obama is his COWARDICE. Yes, he could die for speaking out and firing Robert Gates to start, no different to JFK died for crossing Allan Dulles, but that risk is the heat that comes with the territory, Obama was the one who had the absurd ambition to become

126 President of the United States. He only needs to do the right thing, ONE right thing. Gates and his ilk have to go, government must be purged of corporate/fascist religious extremists and America must unilaterally disarm. The safety of our nation, indeed, the safety of our planet depends on it and it can be and it must be lawfully done. It is patently illegal under the American Constitution to have religion in government. And a criminal state with nukes cannot expect to survive. The entire world will have to consider how to do away with us, if we do not deal with this corporate boardroom initiated nuclear-armed-religious-extremist-fascism in government Incidental to this, and the reason for it all being coupled with the satire, is I have been using an ancient Native American warrior technique for the past three years and some months that I took from Blackfoot Oral History. In those seeming far away days, when a solitary warrior was outnumbered, one method of fighting in circumstance of ‘no quarter’ was to choose a place to make a stand to your best possible advantage and taunt your enemies and try as best you could to get under their skin and enrage them into making mistakes. On two occasions over the past three or so years, Dick Cheney has had heart attacks coordinated to my escaping assassination while compromising his operations, within a matter of hours. I hate to say I enjoy that If one person, one man, can do the things I have done and survive, simply by refusing to be afraid, what are the possibilities for putting these criminals out of business? The possibilities are actually quite good, these people are nothing more than cowards who murder in the name of valor while pursuing their crimes in the dark. It is time in the natural order of things to bring these things into the light and the light will honor those who do not fear. The answer is really quite clear, there is every reason not to be afraid. This is paramount An important point is the stupidity of these people. If I’d been left alone from the moment of altogether quitting my work as investigator for the Mueller Law Offices in 1999, my truly indigenous mentality would today likely find me hooked up with some beauty with children, a garden and a dog. The neo-cons could plot and pursue their literal Armageddon, I would not even have cared. All I wanted is a life that is normal. Meanwhile, I’d requested a meeting with an Amnesty International representative in the Spring of 2008. That request was sent directly to the AI secretariat via the contact information provided by their office. I copied that request to James O’Dea at the Institute of Noetic Science, personally acquainted with me, James is a former AI director of the Washington, DC office. That request remains studiously ignored by both parties to this day- pointing to the power of the neo-con intelligence agencies to corrupt any mechanism for justice Meanwhile I’ve sent an offer to testify against Condoleezza Rice to the International Criminal Court, relating to a case filed there by an American law professor. Sooner or later we’ll see if there even is such a thing as justiceAt Berlin, April 2011

Appendix I Covered up: More than 1/3 of American woman soldiers raped September 2008 | WASHINGTON (CNN) – A congresswoman said Thursday that her “jaw dropped” when military doctors told her that four in 10 women at a veterans hospital reported being sexually assaulted while in the military. A government report indicates that the numbers could be even higher. Rep. Jane Harman, D-California, spoke before a House panel investigating the way the military handles reports of sexual assault. “My jaw dropped when the doctors told me that 41 percent of the female veterans seen there say they were victims of sexual assault while serving in the military,” said Harman, who has long sought better protection of women in the military. “We have an epidemic here,” she said. “Women serving in the U.S. military today are more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire in Iraq.” As of July 24, 100 women had died in Iraq, according to the Pentagon. In 2007, Harman said, only 181 out of 2,212 reports of military sexual assaults, or 8 percent, were referred to courts martial. By comparison, she said, 40 percent of those arrested in the civilian world on such charges are prosecuted. But when it came time for the military to defend itself, the panel was told that the Pentagon’s top official on sexual abuse, Dr. Kaye Whitley, was ordered not to show up despite a subpoena. Rep. John Tierney, the panel’s chairman and a Democrat from Massachusetts, angrily responded, “these actions by the Defense Department are inexplicable.” “The Defense Department appears to be willfully and blatantly advising Dr. Whitley not to comply with a duly authorized congressional subpoena,” Tierney said. The committee also heard from Mary Lauterbach, the mother of Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach, a 20-year-old pregnant Marine who was killed in December, allegedly by a fellow Marine. “I believe that Maria would be alive today if the Marines had provided a more effective system to protect the victims of sexual assault,” she said. In the months after her daughter filed the rape claim, she said, the military didn’t seem to take her seriously, and the onus was on “Maria to connect the dots.” Another woman, Ingrid Torres, described being raped on a U.S. base in Korea when she worked with the American Red Cross. “I was raped while I slept,” she said.

“At the 14 installations where GAO administered its survey, 103 service members indicated that they had been sexually assaulted within the preceding 12 months. Of these, 52 service members indicated that they did not report the sexual assault,” the GAO said. The office found that the military and Coast Guard have established policies to address sexual assault but that the implementation of the programs is hampered by an array of factors, including that “most, but not all, commanders support the programs.” “Left unchecked, these challenges can discourage or prevent some service members from using the programs when needed,” the GAO said.” My take on this is the fundamentalist Christian military commanders will not address rape. This is the missing component: Fundamentalism = rape in male hierarchal culture that teaches women are dirty and inferior. Until the proper information is developed and addressed, this aspect of the exclusionary “Christian Dominion” of the 15,000 strong “Officer’s Christian Fellowship” component in the USA military’s officer corps will continue in a position of power to shield their fellow soldiers from rape prosecutions. This fundamentalist Christian attitude will not allow rape punishments to be prioritized (too many far more important things they will wish to busy themselves with) in the case of “Born Again” Christian males raping women. However if it were non-Christian males committing rape, I predict a study addressing the wider issues of faith in the military relating to or inclusive of rape will draw distinctions related to their exclusionary theology. In this case, the information developed at militaryreligiousfreedom.org should cross-reference in any study: It will be the same exclusionary male hierarchal religious attitudes which permit both rape and other forms of discrimination by “Born Again” Christian males and by officers particularly. Sunday, 28 September 2008: Malalai Kakar, police woman and women’s advocate, was assassinated by the Taliban in Kandahar, Afghanistan for her advocacy of women’s rights. Who are the Taliban? The dark ages fundamentalists of that regions Islam which mirror the dark ages extremists of Christianity in the United States military special operations forces night raids who are indiscriminately murdering women in Afghanistan as well, with the attitude Muslims are sub-humans while shooting in the back children and women who flee from U.S. special forces sweeps of villages. Relevant to this, is a militaryreligiusfreedom.org lawsuit fighting the Christian religious extremist takeover of out military. I think my women’s advocate and feminist friends might find this part of the militaryreligiousfreedom.org lawsuit interesting. A Christian program emphasizing sexual integrity to the women (in the military where 50 of 100 women soldiers interviewed state they did not report a sexual assault) I don’t guess they are concerned with the men’s sexual integrity.

129 “The Army “Strong Bonds” Program. The present U.S. Government funded Strong Bonds program replaced a decade old, proven program called Building Strong and Ready Families (BSRF), which was a collaboration between the Army Public Health Nurses and the Chaplain Corps. Strong Bonds is now an evangelistic Christian program operating under the guise of a pre-deployment and post-deployment family wellness and marriage training program. Strong Bonds eliminated the public health nurses and health education aspects that were a large part of BSRF, created a program run entirely by chaplains who facilitate almost exclusively of Christian religious retreats. These retreats are typically held at ski lodges, beach resorts, and other attractive vacation spots. The materials authorized by the Army for Strong Bonds are not religious. However, these authorized materials are only required to be used for a minimal number of the training hours, leaving the remaining mandatory training hours open for other materials selected by the chaplains. In some cases, the authorized material are completely eliminated, and the retreats are overtly Christian. In other cases, the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP), a secular program on the list of materials authorized for Strong Bonds, is being replaced by chaplains with CPREP, the Christian version of this program. At a “Strong Bond” program in Orlando, Florida from February 29, 200B, to March 2, 2008, the following material was distributed to attendees: A camouflage box, titled, “Every Soldier’s Battle Kit,” and imprinted with the name, New Life Ministries, their phone number, website (http://www.newlife.com/). and phrase, “Fighting the battle within.” The box contained: * A Bible, titled, “The Life Recovery Bible;” and four volumes by Shannon Ethridge (website http://www.shannonethridge.com/) * “Every Woman, Every Day,” (365 Christian readings and sermons about “sexual purity”); * “Every Woman’s Battle,” (a book of Christian sermons, and Bible verses to “Discover God’s plan for sexual and emotional fulfillment.”); * “Every Woman’s Battle Promise Book,” (a “daily devotional” of Bible verses to support the reader in a quest for “sexual integrity”) I’d like to see women somehow fighting back. Other than the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, no one is holding the military’s feet to the fire on the issue of fundamentalism of our Officer Corps which covers up crimes against women and pushes the USA’s wars as crusades. Where is the American leadership on these issues of wide spread and patent criminal activity in the United States armed forces? Note: this following documentation includes murders of women under General Patreaus’ tenure as Commanding General in Iraq, in cases of women soldiers who’d come too close to corruption at the command level somehow ended up dead:

U.S. Military Is Keeping Secrets About Female Soldiers’ ‘Suicides’ By Col. Ann Wright, Truthdig. Posted September 10, 2008. Since I posted on April 28 the article “Is There an Army Cover Up of the Rape and Murder of Women Soldiers,” the deaths of two more U.S. Army women in Iraq and Afghanistan have been listed as suicides — the Sept. 28, 2007, death of 30-year-old Spc. Ciara Durkin and the Feb. 22, 2008, death of 25-year-old Spc. Keisha Morgan. Both “suicides” are disputed by the families of the women. Since April 2008, five more U.S. military women have died in Iraq — three in noncombat-related incidents. Ninety-nine U.S., six British and one Ukrainian military women and 13 U.S. female civilians have been killed in Iraq, Kuwait and Bahrain, as well as probably hundreds of thousands of Iraqi women and girls. Of the 99 U.S. military women, 64 were in the Army active component, nine in the Army National Guard, seven in the Army Reserve, seven in the Marine Corps, nine in the Navy and three in the Air Force. According to the Department of Defense, 41 of the 99 U.S. military women who have been killed in Iraq died in “noncombat-related incidents.” Of the 99 U.S. military women killed in the Iraq theater, 41 were women of color (21 African-Americans, 16 Latinas, three of Asian-Pacific descent and one Native American). Fourteen U.S. military women, including five in the Army, one in the Army National Guard, two in the Army Reserves, three in the Air Force, two in the Navy (on ships supporting U.S. forces in Afghanistan) and one in the Marine Corps, one British military woman and six U.S. civilian women have been killed in Afghanistan. According to the Department of Defense, four U.S. military women in Afghanistan died in noncombat-related incidents, including one now classified as a suicide. Four military women of color (three African-Americans and one Latina) have been killed in Afghanistan. The deaths of 14 U.S. military (13 Army and one Navy) women and one British military woman who served in Iraq, Kuwait or Afghanistan have been classified as suicides. Two Army women in Iraq (Pfc. Hannah Gunterman McKinney, a victim of vehicular homicide, and Pfc. Kamisha Block, who was shot five times by a fellow soldier who then killed himself) and two Navy women in Bahrain (MASN Anamarie Camacho and MASN Genesia Gresham, both shot by a male sailor who then shot, but did not kill, himself) have died at the hands of fellow military personnel. Several more military women have died with unexplained “noncombat” gunshot wounds (U.S. Army Sgt. Melissa Valles, July 9, 2003: gunshot to the abdomen; Marine Lance Cpl. Juana Arellano, April 8, 2006: gunshot wound to the head while in a “defensive position”). Most of the deaths of women who have died of noncombat gunshot wounds have been classified as suicides, rather than homicides.

131

The Army, the only military service to release annual figures on suicides, reported that 115 soldiers committed suicide in 2007. According to Army figures, 32 soldiers committed suicide in Iraq and four in Afghanistan. Of the 115 Army suicides, 93 were in the Regular Army and 22 were in the Army National Guard or Reserves. The report lists five Army women as having committed suicide in 2007. Young, white, unmarried junior enlisted troops were the most likely to commit suicide, according to the report. From 2003 until August 2008, the deaths of 13 Army women and one Navy woman in Iraq and Afghanistan (including Kuwait and Bahrain) have been classified as suicides (numbers confirmed with various media sources): 2008 — Spc. Keisha Morgan (Taji, Iraq) 2007 — Spc. Ciara Durkin (Bagram, Afghanistan), Capt. (medical doctor) Roselle Hoffmaster (Kirkik, Iraq) 2006 — Pfc. Tina Priest (Taji, Iraq), Pfc. Amy Duerkson (Taji, Iraq), Sgt. Denise Lannaman (Kuwait), Sgt. Jeannette Dunn (Taji, Iraq), Maj. Gloria Davis (Baghdad). 2005 — Pvt. Lavena Johnson (Balad, Iraq), 1st Lt. Debra Banaszak (Kuwait), USN MA1 Jennifer Valdivia (Bahrain) 2004 — Sgt. Gina Sparks (it is unclear where in Iraq she was injured, but she died in the Fort Polk, La., hospital) 2003 — Spc. Alyssa Peterson (Tal Afar, Iraq), Sgt. Melissa Valles (Balad, Iraq) The demographics of those Army women who allegedly committed suicide are as intriguing as the circumstances of their deaths: Seven of the women, being between the ages of 30 and 47, were older than the norm (Davis, 47; Lannaman, 46; Dunn, 44; Banaszak, 35; Hoffmaster, 32; Sparks, 32; and Durkin, 30). (Most military suicides are in their 20s). Three were officers: a major (Davis), a captain and medical doctor (Hoffmaster) and a first lieutenant (Banaszak). Five were noncommissioned officers (Lannaman, Dunn, Sparks, Valles and Valdivia). Five were women of color (Morgan, Davis, Johnson, Lannaman, Valles). Four were from units based at Fort Hood, Texas, and were found dead at Camp Taji, Iraq (Dunn, Priest, Duerkson, and Morgan). Two were found dead at Camp Taji, Iraq, 11 days apart (Priest and Duerkson). Two were found dead at Balad, Iraq (Johnson and Valles).

132 Two had been raped (Priest, 11 days prior to her death; Duerksen, during basic training). One other was probably raped (Johnson, the night she died). Two were lesbians (Lannaman and Durkin). Two of the women were allegedly involved in bribes or shakedowns of contractors (Lannaman and Davis). Two had children (Davis and Banaszak). Three had expressed concerns about improprieties or irregularities in their commands (Durkin’s concerns were financial; Davis had given a seven-page deposition on contracting irregularities in Iraq the day before she died; Peterson was concerned about methods of interrogation of Iraqi prisoners). Several had been in touch with their families within days of their deaths and had not expressed feelings of depression (Morgan, Durkin, Davis, Priest, Johnson). The Death of Lavena Johnson As discussed in my article “Is There an Army Cover Up of Rape and Murder of Women Soldiers?,” 19-year-old Army Pvt. Lavena Johnson was found dead on the military base in Balad, Iraq, in July 2005, and her death was characterized by the Army as suicide from an M-16 rifle gunshot. From the day their daughter’s body was returned to them, the parents, both of whom have had a long association with the Army — the father, a medical doctor, is an Army veteran and worked 25 years as a Department of the Army civilian and the mother, too, worked for the Department of the Army — harbored grave suspicions about the Army’s investigation into Johnson’s death and the Army’s characterization of her death as suicide. As she had been in charge of a communications facility, Johnson was able to call home daily; in those calls, she gave no indication of emotional problems or being upset. In a letter to her parents after her death, Johnson’s commanding officer, Capt. David Woods, wrote, “Lavena was clearly happy and seemed in very good health both physically and emotionally.” In viewing his daughter’s body at the funeral home, Dr. John Johnson was concerned about the bruising on her face. He was puzzled by the discrepancy in the autopsy report on the location of the gunshot wound. As an Army veteran and a long-time Army civilian employee who had counseled veterans, he was mystified how the exit wound of an M-16 shot could be so small. The hole in Lavena’s head appeared to be more the size of a pistol shot rather than an M-16 round. But the gluing of military uniform white gloves onto Lavena’s hands, hiding burns on one of her hands, is what deepened Dr. Johnson’s concerns that the Army’s investigation into the death of his daughter was flawed. Over the next two and a half years, Dr. and Mrs. Johnson and their family and friends, through the Freedom of Information Act and congressional offices, relentlessly and meticulously requested documents concerning Lavena’s death from the Department of

133 the Army. Gradually, with the Army’s response to each request for information, another piece of evidence about Johnson’s death emerged. The military criminal investigator’s initial drawing of the death scene revealed that Johnson’s M16 was found perfectly parallel to her body. The investigator’s sketch showed that her body was found inside a burning tent, under a wooden bench with an aerosol can nearby. A witness, an employee of the defense contractor Kellogg, Brown & Root (KBR), stated that he heard a gunshot and when he went to investigate, he found a KBR tent on fire. When he looked into the tent, he saw a body. The official Army investigation did not mention a fire, nor that Johnson’s body had been pulled from the fire. KBR Women Employees Raped in Iraq The fact that Lavena Johnson’s body was discovered in a KBR tent raises questions. Many KBR women employees have been raped in Iraq. One law firm in Houston has 15 clients with sexual assault, sexual harassment or retaliation complaints against Halliburton and its former subsidiary Kellogg, Brown & Root LLC (KBR), as well as against the Cayman Island-based Service Employees International Inc., a KBR shell company (Karen Houppert, “Another KBR Rape Case,” The Nation, April 3, 2008). Two female employees of KBR who were raped while in Iraq have testified before Congress. On her fourth day in Iraq, July 28, 2005, Jamie Leigh Jones was gangraped by seven fellow KBR employees at Camp Hope in Baghdad. Jones’ rape occurred nine days after Lavena Johnson was found dead in a KBR tent at Balad Air Base. Jones was drugged, raped and beaten, and the injuries she suffered were so severe that she had to have reconstructive surgery on her chest. Jones reportedly was taken back to the KBR area, where she was placed into an empty shipping container under KBR armed guard for almost 24 hours without food or water or the ability to communicate with anyone. The military doctor who examined her turned over the “rape kit” photographs and statement to KBR. Jones persuaded a guard to allow her a phone call, which she made to her father. Her father promptly called their Texas congressional representative, Ted Poe, who then called the State Department in Iraq and demanded her immediate release. Jones was rescued shortly thereafter and quickly left Iraq. Congressman Poe again contacted the State Department and the Department of Justice in an effort to launch an investigation, but both departments ignored the requests and even refused to contact Poe for the next two years. The “rape kit” and the photographs of and statement from Jones taken by a military doctor disappeared. Jones testified Dec. 17, 2007, before the House Judiciary Committee on “Enforcement of Federal Criminal Law to Protect Americans Working for U.S. Contractors in Iraq”. The nonprofit foundation Jones created after her ordeal, the Jamie Leigh Jones Foundation, has been contacted by 40 U.S. contractor employees alleging that they are the victims of sexual assault or sexual harassment on the job and that Halliburton,

134 KBR and Service Employees International Inc. have not helped them or have obstructed their claims (Karen Houppert, “Another KBR Rape Case,” The Nation, April 3, 2008). Dawn Leamon was another civilian contractor employed by KBR who was raped allegedly by KBR employees. She was the sole medical provider at Camp Harper, a base near Basra in southern Iraq. Leamon reported being raped anally by a U.S. soldier in January 2008 while a KBR employee forced his penis into her mouth. She says she was told to keep quiet by her KBR supervisor and by the military liaison officer. Her laptop computer was seized within hours after she e-mailed a civilian lawyer. She testified on April 9, 2008, before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee in the hearing “Closing Legal Loopholes: Prosecuting Sexual Assaults and Other Violent Crimes Committed Overseas by American Civilians in a Combat Environment”. Johnsons’ Quest Continues in Daughter’s Death After two years of requesting documents, the family of Lavena Johnson received a set of papers from the Army that included a photocopy of a compact disk. Wondering why the copy was among the documents, Dr. Johnson requested the CD itself. The Army finally complied after a congressman intervened. When Dr. Johnson viewed the CD, he was shocked to see photographs taken by Army investigators of his daughter’s body as it lay where her body had been found, as well as other photographs of her disrobed body taken during the investigation. The photographs revealed that Lavena, barely five feet tall and weighing less than 100 pounds, had been struck in the face with a blunt instrument, perhaps a weapon stock. Her nose was broken and her teeth knocked backward. One elbow was distended. The back of her clothes contained debris, indicating she had been dragged. The photographs of her disrobed body showed bruises, scratch marks and teeth imprints on the upper part of her body. The right side of her back as well as her right hand had been burned, apparently from a flammable liquid poured on her and then lighted. Photographs of her genital area revealed massive bruising and lacerations. A corrosive liquid had been poured into her genital area, probably to destroy DNA evidence of sexual assault. Despite the bruises, scratches, teeth imprints and burns on her body, Lavena was found completely dressed in the burning tent. There was a blood trail from outside the contractor’s tent to inside the tent. She apparently had been dressed after the attack and her attacker had placed her body in the tent before setting it on fire. Investigator records reveal that members of her unit said Johnson had told them she was going jogging with friends on the other side of the base. One unit member walked with her to the post exchange, where she bought a soda, and then, in her Army workout clothes, Johnson went on by herself to meet friends and to exercise. The unit member said she was in good spirits, showing no indication of personal emotional problems. The Army investigators initially concluded that Pvt. Johnson’s death was a homicide and indicated that on their paperwork. However, a decision apparently was made by

135 higher officials that the investigators would stop the homicide inquiry and classify her death a suicide. Three weeks later, a final autopsy report from the U.S. Armed Forces Institute of Pathology, dated Aug. 13, 2005, said the cause of death was an intraoral gunshot wound to the head and the manner of death was a suicide. However, the autopsy report — written after the July 22, 2005, autopsy at Dover Air Force Base and signed on Aug. 9, 2005 by associate medical examiner Lt. Cmdr. Edward Reedy and by chief deputy medical examiner Cmdr. James Caruso — states much more in its opinion section: The 19 year old female, Lavena Johnson, died as a result of a gunshot wound of the head that caused injuries to the skull and brain. The entrance wound was inside the mouth and injuries to the lips and oral mucosa were a direct result of the discharge of the weapon. The exit wound was located on the left side of the head. No bullet or bullet fragments were recovered. Toxicology was negative for alcohol and other screened drugs. The investigative information made available indicates that this was a self-inflicted gunshot wound. With the information surrounding the circumstances of the death that is presently available the manner of death is determined to be suicide. The medical examiners revealed that they were basing their determination of suicide on “investigative information made available indicat[ing] that this was a self-inflicted gunshot wound,” not from medical evidence. They did not address what caliber of bullet entered her body — in fact, they stated that no bullet or bullet fragment was recovered, and they did not offer comments on what caliber of bullet would have made the entry and exit wounds. The Aug. 25, 2005, report from the U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Laboratory in Forest Park, Ga., stated: The characteristic gunshot residue particle indicated on Exhibit 5 (Gunshot residue kit (Item 9, Doc 775-05), the number is considered insignificant. Based on these results, the report concludes that the following possibilities exist, but the report makes no conclusion: a. The subject did not handle/discharge a firearm. b. The subject handled/discharged a firearm but an insignificant number of gunshot residue particles were deposited on the hands. c. The subject handled/discharged a firearm that deposited a significant number of gunshot residue particles on the hand; however, due to washing, wiping, or other activity, the particles were reduced to insignificant numbers. b. The medical examiners who did the autopsy on Johnson’s body did not mention any burns on her body, but when the family had gloves that had been glued onto her hands cut off by the funeral home employees in Missouri, they found her hands had been burned, and further examination showed her back was burned. A witness statement taken on July 19, 2005, states: “The witness [name redacted] … found the victim under the bench and verified there were no signs of life … related he saw the M16 lying across the victim’s body … he didn’t know what setting the weapon was on … he related everything was

136 smoking, including parts of the body. He called for an ambulance and secured the scene.” On April 9, 2008, Johnson’s parents flew from their home in St. Louis for meetings with members of Congress and their staff. They again went to Washington, D.C., in July 2008 and were briefed by Army investigators and the military medical examiner who conducted the autopsy on Lavena. The Army briefers maintained that her death was a suicide and were unable to answer Dr. John and Linda Johnson’s long list of questions. The Johnsons are asking for a congressional hearing that would force the Army to further investigate their daughter’s death. Murder of Three Women in North Carolina Some of the circumstances surrounding Lavena Johnson’s death in Iraq three years ago are similar to those of other American servicewomen who died in recent months. In the six months from December 2007 to July 2008, three U.S. military women were killed by military males near the Army’s Fort Bragg and the Marine Corps’ Camp Lejeune, two mega-bases in North Carolina. Two of the women were in the Army. Spc. Megan Touma was seven months pregnant when her body was found inside a Fayetteville hotel room June 21, 2008. A married male soldier whom she knew in Germany has since been arrested. The estranged Marine husband of Army 2nd Lt. Holley Wimunc has been arrested in her death and the burning of her body. Marine Lance Cpl. Maria Lauterbach had been raped in May 2007 and protective orders had been issued against the alleged perpetrator, fellow Marine Cpl. Cesar Laurean. The burned body of Lauterbach and her unborn baby were found in a shallow grave in the backyard of Laurean’s home in January 2008. Laurean fled to Mexico, where he was captured by Mexican authorities. He is currently awaiting extradition to the United States to stand trial. Lauterbach’s mother testified before Congress on July 31, 2008, that the Marine Corps ignored warning signs that Laurean was a danger to her daughter (testimony of Mary Lauterbach to the National Security and Foreign Affairs Subcommittee of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee). Two Women Sexually Assaulted Before Their Deaths Remarkably, a rape test was not performed on the body of Lavena Johnson although bruising and lacerations in her genital area indicated assault. Another family that does not believe their daughter committed suicide in Iraq is the family of Pfc. Tina Priest, 20, of Smithville, Texas, who was reported raped by a fellow soldier in February of 2006 on a military base known as Camp Taji. Priest was a part of the 5th Support Battalion, lst Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division from Fort Hood, Texas. The Army said Priest was found dead in her room on March 1, 2006, of a self-inflicted M-16 shot, 11 days after the rape. Priest’s mother, Joy Priest, disputes the Army’s findings.

137 Mrs. Priest said she talked several times with her daughter after the rape and that Tina, while very upset about the rape, was not suicidal. Mrs. Priest continues to challenge the Army’s 800 pages of investigative documents with a simple question: How could her five-foot-tall daughter, with a correspondingly short arm length, have held the M-16 at the angle which would have resulted in the gunshot? The Army attempted several explanations, but each was debunked by Mrs. Priest and by the 800 pages of materials provided by the Army itself. The Army now says Tina used her toe to pull the trigger of the weapon that killed her. The Army reportedly never investigated Tina’s death as a homicide, only as a suicide. According to Tina’s mother, rape charges against the soldier whose sperm was found on Tina’s sleeping bag were dropped a few weeks after her death. He was convicted of failure to obey an order and sentenced to forfeiture of $714 for two months, 30 days’ restriction to the base and 45 days of extra duty. On May 11, 2006, 10 days after Tina Priest was found dead, 19-year-old Army Pfc. Amy Duerksen was found dead at the same Camp Taji. Duerksen died three days after she suffered what the Army called “a self-inflicted gunshot.” The Army claimed that she, too, had committed suicide. In the room where her body was found, investigators reportedly discovered her diary open to a page on which she had written about being raped during training after unknowingly ingesting a date-rape drug. The person Duerkson identified in her diary as the rapist was charged by the Army with rape after her death. Many who knew her did not believe she shot herself, but there is no evidence of a homicide investigation by the Army. Women Had Concerns About Job Irregularities Three women whose deaths have been classified as suicides had expressed concerns about improprieties or irregularities in their military commands. Army Spc. Ciara Durkin, 30, a Massachusetts National Guard payroll clerk, was found dead on Sept. 28, 2007, from a gunshot wound to the head. She had gotten off work 90 minutes earlier and was found lying near a chapel on Bagram Air Base in Afghanistan. Durkin had called her brother just hours before she died, leaving an upbeat happy birthday message on his telephone. In previous conversations, Durkin told her sister that she had discovered something in the finance unit that she did not agree with and that she had made some enemies over it. She told her sister to keep investigating her death if anything happened to her. In June 2008, the Army declared her death a suicide. Army interrogator Spc. Alyssa Renee Peterson, 27, assigned to C Company, 311th Military Intelligence Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Ky., was an Arabic linguist who reportedly was very concerned about the manner in which interrogations of detained Iraqis were being conducted. She died on Sept. 15, 2003, near Tal Afar, Iraq, in what the Army described as a gunshot wound to the head, a noncombat, self-inflicted weapons discharge, or suicide. Peterson had reportedly objected to the interrogation techniques used on prisoners in Iraq and refused to participate after only two nights working in the unit known as “the cage.” Members of her unit have refused to describe the specific interrogation techniques to which Peterson objected. The military says that all records of those techniques have now

138 been destroyed. After refusing to conduct more interrogations, Peterson was assigned to guard the base gate, where she monitored Iraqi guards. She was also sent to suicide prevention training. Army investigators concluded she shot and killed herself with her service rifle on the night of Sept. 15, 2003. Family members challenge the Army’s conclusion. Maj. Gloria Davis, 47, an 18-year Army veteran, mother and grandmother, was found dead of a gunshot wound on Dec. 12, 2006, the day after she reportedly talked at length to an Army investigator about corruption in military contracting. She had been accused of accepting a $225,000 bribe from Lee Dynamics, a defense contractor that provided warehouse space for the storage of automatic weapons in Iraq (Eric Schmitt and James Glanz, “U.S. Says Company Bribes Officers for Work in Iraq,” New York Times, Aug. 31, 2007). Davis’ mother, Annie Washington, told the author that military investigators have never located any of the $225,000 Davis is alleged to have taken. Washington said her daughter was right-handed and would have had a hard time holding the weapon in her left hand and shooting herself on the left side of her head (telephone conversation between Ann Wright and Annie Washington, July 2008). Federal court documents show that the Army suspended Lee Dynamics from contracting on July 9, 2007, over allegations that the company paid hundreds of thousands of dollars to numerous U.S. officers in Iraq and Kuwait in 2004 and 2005 to get contracts to build, operate and maintain warehouses in Iraq where weapons, uniforms and vehicles for the Iraqi military were stored. Reportedly included in the documents was a seven-page statement by an Army investigator who questioned Maj. Davis the day before she was found dead in her quarters. The deposition has apparently been used in ongoing federal cases on corruption in military contracting. The author attempted to obtain a copy of Davis’ statement from the Department of Justice, but a DoJ public affairs officer said the statement is not yet in the public domain and intimated that it is being used in other ongoing DoJ investigations into contracting fraud (telephone conversation on July 28, 2008, with DoJ public affairs officer). The Lee Dynamics warehouses were part of a circle of corruption involving military personnel and contractors throughout Iraq and the disappearance of 190,000 U.S.supplied weapons — 110,000 AK-47 assault rifles and 80,000 pistols intended for Iraqi security forces for which the U.S. military cannot account. A July 2007 Government Accountability Office report said that until December 2005 the U.S.Iraqi training command had no centralized records on weapons provided to Iraqi forces, and although 185,000 AK-47 rifles, 170,000 pistols, 215,000 sets of body armor and 140,000 steel helmets had been issued by September 2005, because of poor record keeping it was unclear what happened to 110,000 AK-47s and 80,000 pistols and more than half the armor and helmets. In December 2007, the U.S. military acknowledged that it had lost track of an additional 12,000 weapons, including more than 800 machine guns. In 2005, Col. Ted Westhusing, 44, at the time the highest-ranking officer to die in Iraq, allegedly committed suicide after reportedly becoming despondent about the

139 poor performance of private contractors who were training Iraqi police, for which he was responsible. After graduating third in his West Point class and serving as the honor captain for the entire academy his senior year, Westhusing became one of the Army’s leading scholars on military ethics and was a professor at West Point. In January 2005 Westhusing began supervising the training of Iraqi forces to take over security duties from the U.S. military. He oversaw the Virginia-based USIS, a private security contractor, which had contracts worth $79 million to train a corps of Iraqi police to conduct special-operations missions. Westhusing was upset about allegations, in a four-page anonymous letter, that USIS deliberately shorted the Iraqi government on the number of trainers it provided in order to increase its profit margin. The letter also revealed two incidents in which USIS contractors allegedly had witnessed or participated in the killing of Iraqi civilians. After an angry counseling meeting with the contractor, Westhusing was found dead of a gunshot wound. Many of Westhusing’s professional colleagues question the Army’s ruling of suicide, despite the note found in his quarters. They point out that Westhusing did not have a bodyguard and was surrounded by the same contractors he suspected of wrongdoing. They also question why the USIS company manager who discovered Westhusing’s body was not tested for gunpowder residue. In the space of three months in 2006, three members of the U.S. Army who had been part of a contracting and logistics group in Kuwait and Iraq were accused of taking bribes from contractors and allegedly committed suicide. Two of them were women, Maj. Gloria Davis and Sgt. Denise Lannaman, and the third was Lt. Col. Marshall Gutierrez. In August 2006 Gutierrez was arrested at a restaurant in Kuwait and was accused of shaking down a laundry contractor for a $3,400 bribe. He was allowed to return to his quarters and was found dead on Sept. 4, 2006, with an empty bottle of prescription sleeping pills and an open container of what appeared to be antifreeze. The second woman soldier who was allegedly involved with bribes and allegedly committed suicide was New York Army National Guard Sgt. Denise A. Lannaman. Lannaman, 46, had completed one tour in Tikrit, Iraq, in 2005. In December 2005 she decided to volunteer to stay in Iraq longer and took an assignment at a desk job at a procurement office in Camp Arifjan, Kuwait, that purchased millions of dollars in supplies. She received excellent performance ratings, and her supervisor said that her oversight eliminated misuse of funds by 36 percent. On Oct. 1, 2006, Lannaman was questioned by a senior officer about the death of Lt. Col. Gutierrez and was reportedly told by that officer that she was implicated in the contracting fraud and would be leaving the military in disgrace. She was found in a jeep dead of a gunshot later that day. The Army has classified Lannaman’s death as a suicide. A member of her family said that Lannaman had a history of psychiatric problems but somehow been allowed to enlist in the military. She had attempted suicide four times in her life, according to the family member. In September 2007, Army spokesman Lt. Col. William Wiggins told the family that Lannaman had not been the subject of any contract investigations, but he said he could not say whether Lannaman had been threatened by a superior officer with dismissal from the service (Jim Dwyer, “Letter from America: Journey from New York to Kuwait, and Suicide,” New York Times, Sept. 19, 2007). Lannaman’s

140 family said that because of her pre-existing mental state, the threat that the superior officer made to send her home in disgrace could have caused her to take her life. Soldiers Convicted of Bribery In June 2008 four persons plead guilty in bribery and kickback scandals concerning military contracts in Iraq. On June 11, 2008, recently retired Army National Guard Col. Levonda Joey Selph, a key person on Gen. David Petraeus’ team that was training and equipping Iraqi security forces in 2004 and 2005, pleaded guilty to bribery and conspiracy. She admitted disclosing to the owner of Lee Dynamics International confidential bidding information about a $12-million contract for building and operating U.S. military warehouses in Iraq that stored automatic weapons and other equipment. Lee Dynamics International is the same company that reportedly gave Maj. Davis a $225,000 bribe. Col. Selph helped the company owner, a former Army pay clerk, to submit “fake bid packages on behalf of six companies he controlled to create a false sense of competition,” for which she was given a trailer valued at $20,000; she eventually returned the trailer, and the contractor then gave her $4,000 in cash and paid for air fare and accommodations for a trip to Thailand in October 2005, valued at about $5,000. Selph has since agreed to pay the U.S. government $9,000 and could serve a prison sentence of up to two years (Eric Schmitt, “Guilty Plea Given in Iraq Contract Fraud,” New York Times, June 11, 2008). After having been in military custody since July 2007, Army Maj. John Cockerham, 43, pleaded guilty last January to bribery, conspiracy and money laundering in awarding illegal contracts for supplies such as bottled water. He had received more than $9 million in bribes from at least eight defense contractor companies, and records found in his home indicated he expected to get $5.4 million more. Melissa Cockerham, Cockerham’s wife, also pleaded guilty to money laundering. Their plea bargains were kept under federal court seal until June 25, 2008, while they cooperated with investigators. Cockerham faces up to 40 years in prison, while his wife could face up to 20 years in prison (Dana Hedgpeth, “2 Plead Guilty to Army Bribery Scheme,” Washington Post, June 25, 2008). The Death of Spc. Keisha Morgan Army Spc. Keisha Morgan, 25, was on her second tour in Iraq. Just days before her February 22, 2008, death, she called her mother, Diana Morgan, and happily told her that she had reenlisted. Her mother said that Keisha wanted to be a nurse and planned to fulfill that ambition after she got out of the Army. Assigned to the Fourth Infantry Division, Fort Hood, Texas, Keisha reportedly suffered two seizures in her barracks at Camp Taji and died in a military hospital in Bagdad. The Army reportedly told Keisha’s mother that Keisha was on antidepressants and may have overdosed. In a blog, Keisha’s mother said her daughter had never mentioned being on antidepressants. However, the Army reportedly frequently prescribes antidepressants to soldiers with anxiety from effects of war, and one of the known side effects of some of the depressants is seizures. The Army’s fifth Mental Health Advisory Team report indicates that, according to an anonymous survey of U.S. troops taken in the fall of

141 2007, about 12 percent of combat troops in Iraq and 17 percent of those in Afghanistan are taking prescription antidepressants (such as Prozac and Zoloft) or sleeping pills (such as Ambien) to help them cope, with about 50 percent taking antidepressants and 50 percent taking prescription sleeping pills. In 2007, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration expanded the warning on antidepressants that the drugs may increase the risk of suicide in children and young adults ages 18 to 24, the age group most taking prescribed drugs in the Army. The Army should question whether there is a link between the increased use of the drugs by military troops in Iraq and Afghanistan and the rising suicide rate, which is now double the Army’s suicide rate in 2001. Deception or Just Incompetence? It’s now well known that there was deception by the U.S. military in the friendly fire death of Pat Tillman and the decision to make a heroic character out of Pvt. Jessica Lynch. But there are many other cases of deception and of misinformation given to families. After much pressure from the families for more information on the deaths of their sons in 2004, the parents of Army Spc. Patrick McCaffery and 1st Lt. Andre Tyson were finally told by the Army two years after the death of their sons that they were not killed by insurgents but by Iraqi army recruits with whom they were training and patrolling. The parents of Spc. Jesse Buryj were initially told their son died in an accident. After relentless pressure on the Army for a copy of the autopsy, his mother read that Buryj had died of a gunshot wound. She had to request through the Freedom of Information Act a copy of the incident report, which states he was killed by friendly fire from coalition Polish troops. And later a soldier from Buryj’s unit came to her home and told her he had been killed by “one of our own troops”. Karen Meredith had to request the report on the May 30, 2004, death of her son, 1st Lt. Ken Ballard, through the Freedom of Information Act. Ballard did not die in a firefight with insurgents as she was originally told. He actually died in an accident when a branch fell on a tank in which he was riding and set off an unmanned gun. On Sept. 9, 2005, Meredith met with an Army colonel in the Pentagon and received a letter of apology from the Army for its misinformation on her son’s death. On Sept. 27, 2005, she met with Secretary of the Army Francis Harvey and asked him to promise that soldiers’ families would promptly be told the truth about casualties. As the Beaumont, Texas, newspaper the Enterprise stated in its June 20, 2008, editorial, “There is no excuse for the U.S. Army’s shabby treatment of Kamisha Block’s parents and others who cared for her. Her commanders knew right away that she had been killed by a fellow soldier in Iraq, who had been harassing her. It was a standard murder-suicide. Incredibly, the Army first told her parents that it was an accidental death due to friendly fire.” A few days later, the Army changed its story and told the parents of Spc. Block that their daughter had been murdered by a shot to the chest. At the funeral home in Vidor,

142 Texas, Block’s mother noticed her daughter had a wound to her head, not mentioned by the Army. Six months later, after numerous phone calls to the Army and enlisting help from Congressman Kevin Brady, Block’s family was told by the Army that she had been murdered by a fellow soldier in her unit, a man who had physically assaulted her three times. His unit had disciplined him once but kept him in the same unit where he assaulted Block two other times before he murdered her by firing five shots into her and then killing himself in the same barracks room. After many attempts, the parents finally received a 1,200-page investigation that gave the name of the murderer [end] If the WikiLeaks release of nearly 400,000 low level classified documents had been significant in uncovering a seminal issue the U.S. military command is truly concerned with keeping secret, or had the release been authentic in a sense of unscreened or unedited collection of documents, there would have been something had jumped out and made headlines worldwide: Covered up: More than 1/3 of American woman soldiers raped. Rape of American woman soldiers did not magically disappear from the Iraq war theater and would be recorded in the field reports. A related question by this author would be: Where is Amnesty International, which publicizes widely crimes that cannot otherwise be swept under the carpet, on these reports of the rampant crimes against women in the U.S. military? Why the silence?

143 No Snowflake in an Avalanche My review of the book by Mikey Weinstein The book is a damning indictment of the cowardice of men in leadership, as well a testament to the courage and sacrifice of those they presume to lead. For anyone who’d thought a nascent and growing extreme fundamentalism in the USA merely a threat, this book should make them think again and should rightfully frighten and galvanize to action anyone concerned a cult within our military can both: break the mentality of, and train a young officer for future assignment to launch nuclear weapons. Where to begin? I could write essays on multiple subjects of peril this book has only scratched the surface of, yet that scratch bleeds profusely throughout its pages. It may seem odd to some that, for me, the most striking and empathetic passages of the book is a wife and mother with Multiple Sclerosis surrendering her dream of a life as uncomplicated as possible, as a matter of principle, giving up her pursuit of happiness and the American Dream to take on the malignant social cancer infesting and infecting what must ultimately be what our nation is judged by in the eyes of today’s world; The perception of American empire, the Armed Forces of the United States of America. The human dimension is profound, the humiliation, the grief, the sacrifice and the fighting back against stacked odds at every turn for those ethical civilian and military warriors detailed in this book. Where to begin? Striking is the thought, here is the true story’s protagonist with impeccable conservative credentials, Michael L. ‘Mikey’ Weinstein, breaking down every stereotype and smashing every barrier in a focused, concerted effort which, if successful, and there is no guarantee of success, should win the admiration of dyed in the wool liberals, feminists particularly, and people of every sane persuasion. Mikey has marched a long march to arrive on the cusp of achieving immortality in history. This is no small achievement in it’s own right, that a man, Mikey Weinstein, would have come so far in his personal evolution as to overcome his history of working to keep Iran-Contra from spilling into the open under Reagan, to win my avowed admiration. But here again is a striking moment, it was my own experiences as a soldier had turned me against wars altogether, no different to Howard Zinn. Mikey fits the same mold, only we each have our separate timelines to fated evolution and goals. Mikey’s goal is quite straight forward. To take the American military, the most lethal military in the world by far, out of the hands of and keep it out of the hands of, what can only be accurately described as Madmen. Any such endeavor is highly worthy of my liberal support. Where to begin? Critically important, the book makes a case for young American service women and men dying in vain on account of the narcissism, and nothing more, of those General Officers and politicians trusted with our soldiers care at the highest levels of these United States of America’s institutions, whether at the level of the Joint Chiefs of Staff or sitting in either house of Congress.

144 This last will be the focus of my essay, I will leave the several other critically important subjects to the insights of other reviewers. I cannot speak to nukes as an expert, there are better qualified to speak to contemporary military/civilian life, but one thing I had dusted off and polished these past several years were my intelligence analysis skills. Here follows my analysis, in lockstep with the books conclusions, insofar as how deeply penetrated and compromised our military’s highest offices and ranking officer corps have become by dominionism and will yet cost us dearly in American lives and blood. In my day, our Special Operations Forces had not yet become pervasively criminalized. We saw ourselves more along the lines of an elite Peace Corps working the most hazardous territories of a Cold War world. Critical to our mission was pacification of populace in the areas we worked, and pacification is and was a straightforward word. We worked to bring peace to neighborhoods in conflicts. John Wayne stereotype aside, the military aspects were honest endeavor to provide selfdefense training to remote villages with an objective the populace could not be easily exploited by irregular militia, but that was never going to be accomplished in any case, except that we understood and respected and even integrated to the local customs and culture. That we had elite and lethal training was primarily survival oriented, yes there were the occasional ‘special operation’ to perhaps decapitate the leadership of a particular guerrilla group or undertake sabotage behind enemy lines in the course of our work, examples given, but this was the exception, not the rule. Primarily our superior skills were required to operate small teams in areas where we might meet with considerably stronger numerical force. The highly honed and elite skills of the 1960s and 1970s Green Berets teams were more often than not, more than equal to any larger irregular force. If vastly out numbered, we knew how to inflict savage and costly casualties on our pursuers in the course of evasion. In our pacification work, Action Anthropology was the norm of the day. We integrated to our human and social environment. We were armed educators, medical providers and social workers. We were not primarily meant to be offensive, to the contrary, restraint was a big piece of our discipline and training. Cowboy mentalities were not tolerated. It is quite clear things have changed away from this focus, dramatically, for the military applications of special operations forces, in the approximately four decades since Vietnam. In the span of a few hours or so in Iraq, one Special Forces team leader, inflamed by watching the ‘Passion of the Christ’, instigated an incident that effectively made a war zone of an entire neighborhood and radicalized several hundred, perhaps several thousand Muslims. This commissioned officer had used a bullhorn to have “Jesus kill Mohammed” blared into a Muslim neighborhood, and when the perfectly predictable reaction was everyone with a gun in that area of the city showing up to shoot at this moron, a weapon that could blow through the front and back wall of a house was turned on the neighborhood homes by the Special Forces team. Many of those consequently radicalized Iraqis no doubt turned to local militia and offered their services to train to kill our regular American soldiers over this one of many [unpunished] incidents of Christian extremism provided elite training. Our ‘elite’ forces had just accomplished the absolutely criminal act of getting more Americans killed in future battles. This is the criminalization of our special operations

145 forces by extremist Christian fundamentalist commanders. Who are those commanders? I will name two. General William G. Boykin. A rabid fundamentalist Christian, his career in special operations is littered with tactical disasters, it would seem his only qualifications to have advanced throughout his career is his ‘belief in God.’ That and his belief in his special operations crusaders. With these mentalities at the top of command, what is promoted under you will be a solid corps of those with shared bigoted beliefs. General Boykin, since his retirement in 2007, had to be ‘dis-invited’ from speaking at West Point Academy on account of his virulent hatred of all things and people that are ‘not Christian or not Christian enough.’ Consider it is today’s special operations trained veterans who move into SWAT jobs in your local and state police force, are hired by Blackwater [then Xe Corp, now Academi, a lot of changed identities over a string of fundamentalism motivated crimes] and other de facto corporate militia, join the CIA and FBI or simply become mercenaries. These people with elite training and extreme belief will be getting many more Americans killed over a long haul ahead of us and not only in places like Iraq and Afghanistan. Their numbers are only growing, thanks in large part to: General Patraeus. It is common political knowledge in Washington DC, that President Obama had appointed General Patraeus to head the CIA as a means of sidelining the General’s political ambitions over serious concerns Patraeus would hook up with the likes of Sarah Palin or Michelle Bachman in a run against Obama for the presidency in 2012. Either way you have it, a commander-in-chief, whether a military veteran or not, is a sword that can cut two ways. Obama’s naiveté in military affairs, having never served, is the 2nd worst possible circumstance in an America where naked fundamentalist ambition has overtaken the leadership of American military command structures, outside an out and out fundamentalist president. That Obama would, as a matter of political expediency, appoint Patraeus to head up the CIA with its out of control Operational Division working in close concert with the radicalized and criminalized Christian extremist special operations forces of today’s American military, is simply asking for disaster. General Patraeus was key [together with Robert Gates] in convincing Obama to radically beef up the USA’s special operations forces, at a time it was already decided the overall troop numbers would have to be reduced. General Patraeus has had a close association with special operations forces throughout his career. Since Patraeus appointment to DCI [Director of Central Intelligence or CIA] Admiral William H McRaven, now overall boss of the special operations forces which these days are routinely assigned to CIA operational missions, has requested his forces be allowed to operate outside the traditional Department of Defense channels. This is, no doubt, a sleight-of-hand grab for these elite forces away from normal supervision via established Department of Defense structures, and away from oversight by Admiral McRaven’s professional associate CIA Director Patraeus. This cannot be a good thing. The myth of General Patraeus in the public purview is a demonstrable tactical lie. In fact the ‘surge that turned around the war in Iraq’ for which he became famous was at best a deceit along the lines of a shell game or bait and switch. General Patraeus beefed up the American force, momentarily disrupted the insurgency with an all out push that could not be sustained in any case, and then pulled the bulk of the American

146 forces back to their bases and took the Americans, for the first time, largely out of public circulation before the insurgents could regroup. It is this removing the American soldiers from the everyday Iraqi life which had dramatically dropped the violence in Iraq, nothing more. The same could have been accomplished in 2004, and honestly at that, were it not for literally crusading extremist neo-con commanders and secular officers afraid to speak out and challenge the status quo at the CIA and Pentagon, to call a spade a spade, a career ending move. It is truly Faustian, if you speak out your career is over and you have been weeded from the ranks which only become more Christian extremist with the favored or ‘blessed’ replacements, if you keep your mouth shut, it all evolves towards fascism regardless. Moving over to Afghanistan, notoriously there have been many special operations forces crimes, inclusive of attacking weddings and other incidents where fleeing women and kids had been shot in their backs, cold blooded murders. We pay the Afghans compensation but the root problem of anti-Islam fundamentalism is never effectively addressed and the hate for the Americans only spreads. General Patraeus has had a large hand in keeping these American special operations independent of NATO, effectively exercising impunity and generating a strengthened Taliban when the Americans are seen as a worse curse. Now, we are seeing the full fruition of the crusading mentality and criminal antisocial behaviors with the ‘burning of the Koran’ riots in Kabul triggering a long pent up but growing frustration of the Afghan people as a whole. No Snowflake in an Avalanche points towards the inevitable conclusion: Our fundamentalist neo-con Generals, in the guise of patriotism, have handed an untrained Obama a perfect storm. This is no accident. The book’s holdings are consistent with the scenario I have drawn for the reader from my knowledge of social psychology, special operations intelligence and tactics. The book meticulously documents the facts of the extremism in our military leadership, it is a well written book, concise and cohesive to the points of sedition and treason at the highest levels of the United States Armed Forces and matches my independent assessment of these past several years, summarized in the preceding. ** No Snowflake in an Avalanche by Michael L. ‘Mikey’ Weinstein and David Seay, review by Ronald Thomas West, a Vietnam Veteran, recipient of the United States Army Commendation Medal (individual citation) & the Vietnam Cross of Gallantry (Brigade Aviation, 199th Light Infantry Brigade, unit citation.)
