Evolving Beyond the Two-Party Duopoly: Two Projects to Represent US and "WE-Distribute" Political Power in America This American evolution we're hinting at requires that we evolve from helpless and hopeless victims of a bad system to aware, awakened advocates and activists for a new one. Here are two chances to make one!

Oops - And a Shout-Out to Our Friends at OpEdNews I got a concerned e-mail from the OpEdNews editor-in-chief, Rob Kall, who assumed I was suggesting it was OpEdNews that "fired" me ... and wondering how this misunderstanding occurred.

A New Precedent for President's Day - It's Time to Face the Elephant (and Donkey) in the Living Room... Together We the people of America are on the cusp of a Constitutional crisis. And if that crisis DOESN'T emerge, then we are REALLY in trouble.

How "Pravda" Reported Bernie's Win in Michigan Fortunately, there is an upwising afoot and more and more Americans recognize the sad truth that our press is more interested in crowd control than truth. And the crowd is getting harder to control. Consider that the energy this election cycle is around the two candidates that have NOT been handpicked by the power structure, Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.

Where Huff Post Draws the Line ... And Why We REALLY Need a People's Upwising Because these topics are verboten, we have a body politic susceptible to the most outrageous of ideas and theories because we cannot trust the mainstream media to tell the truth. In a certain regard, the body politic must be kept ignorant at all costs and that ignorance has caused us to betray our own founding documents...

One Big Reason to Support Bernie This Super-Tuesday - He Can Beat Trump; Hillary Cannot There are still those sticking to the obsolete narrative that somehow being more "mainstream", Hillary is a more viable and electable candidate. As I said, "Yes ... any year but this one."

Top Ten Reasons to Support Bernie Sanders There is an upwising afoot that may well bring the political climate change that got lost in a hopium haze eight years ago. The one candidate willing to confront the elephant (and donkey) in the living room -- pay-to-play politics where the unchecked, unbalanced, unmitigated power of money rules -- Bernie Sanders, is "berning" it up.

For Whom the Trump Blows Even in the darkest of times, it's always amazing to me how the Universe's Sense of Humor emerges to illuminate just about any "shituation". Here is a case in point...

The Audacity of Hopelessness -- Only We the People Can End "Futilism" This is the perfect time to abandon all hope in the Democratic Party and its entrenched misleadership, and to concede that the oligarchy won the game it so blatantly and brutally fixed. No, the Democrats cannot out-Republican the Republicans, even if they shred their last shred of conscience.

Independents Day - A People's Upwising An awakening body politic is now beginning to see through the con game called "two party politics mediated by a media determined to create lots and lots of heat, and very little light"... an upwising is afoot. More and more Americans are wising up to the political sideshow as a "debate and switch" shell game...

5 Reasons I'm Supporting Marianne Williamson for Congress My sense is there is a ripeness in both urgency and awareness -- which is why I am supporting my friend Marianne Williamson in her campaign for Congress as an Independent. You might ask, what difference would it make for one individual to be elected at a time when the moneyed forces seem to be occupying every seat of power?

Signs of Evolutionary Upwising - The Upside of Apocalypse These challenging times have been described as "apocalyptic" and I say ... that's perfect because the original meaning of the word apocalypse is "lifting of the veils". It is now time to bring down the "irony curtain" and end the most toxic "don't ask, don't tell" policy of all - where we promise not to ask our government about its dark shadow, and it promises not to tell us.

From Emergency to Emerge 'n See - The Upwising Is Gaining Momentum Every year on this date, the "impropaganda" machine reminds Americans why we've been enlisted in an "endless war". This year for the first time, I sense that a critical mass of the heretofore-uncritical masses, aren't buying it. The sleeping giant called "we the people" has begun to awaken.

The Signs of the Upwising Are Everywhere! People Are Waking Up, Left and Right Now that the whistle-blowers have gotten things started, the corporate state and its media apparatus are doing an excellent job of exposing themselves. The "irony curtain" -- the invisible wall of impropaganda that separates we the people from the truth -- is showing serious frays, as more and more otherwise mainstream citizens are catching glimpses of the emperor's bare buttocks...

America's Tiananmen Square - Confronting Not-Seeism So ... America is waking up left and right, even as the mainstream media continues to distract and divert, willfully ignorant that we stand at a most significant moment in modern American history. Edward Snowden stepping forward to expose the NSA's comprehensive surveillance measures is America's Tiananmen Square moment.

NPR's "Weakened Edition" -- and What We Can Do Anyway This is simply an expression of the "kinder and gentler" form of totalitarianism where anything that challenges the authority of the corporate state (i.e., the coercive power of government in the service of big money) is simply ignored, and therefore dies from marginalization. Yes, totalitarianism ... or if you prefer a more creative term, "neo-feudalism".

March Against Monsanto ... and Beyond - From Disconnecting the Bad to Connecting the Good Nonetheless, I WILL be in that number when millions gather this Saturday to STAND UP to Monsanto, and STAND FOR life, nature, and the heart and soul of who we are. To put it bluntly, Monsanto -- in its perverse desire to own and control all the seeds in the world -- is a true evil force that seeks to impose the heartless values of the machine on humanity and nature.

Swami Beyondananda To Speak At Conspiracy Con - Oh, and the Issue Isn't Conspiracy... It's Con's Piracy Seeing the mechanisms of power "naked" can be shocking, to say the least. So it's understandable why the phrase "conspiracy theory" is used as a dismissal attack by those unwilling (or unable) to confront the unconfrontable. I mean, if you have credible evidence that our government killed John Kennedy and Martin Luther King, or allowed the 9/11 attacks to happen, what do you do about it? How do you "be" with it?

Sometimes A Cigar Is Just A Cigar In the wake of the tragic and senseless bombings in Boston this past Monday, three "usual suspects" emerged: It was the Muslims. It was the white supremacist gun nuts. It was the government pulling off yet another false flag attack. In this whodunit, each camp pre-concluded the perpetrator based on their worldview...

9/11: From State of Emergency to State of Emergent Seeing It's been ten years since the Twin Towers attacks initiated the never-ending War on Terror. In the Orwellian logic that can only take hold in an atmosphere of fear, we have been collectively "convinced" that only totalitarianism can preserve our freedom. However, there is a deep awakening afoot, an "evolutionary upwising" as people from all sides emerge from the matrix of politics as usual to seek real answers...
