Calling Upon An Enlightened Deep State

Calling Upon An Enlightened Deep State

The US Deep State's Obsession With The Russian Boogeyman Will Risk Civil War, World War, and Human Extinction If They Fail To Defend All The Peoples Of The United States From The White Nationalist/Supremacist Threat To National Security.

It must be stated that the following is not a dismissal or rejection of the idea that Russian involvement might have been involved in the 2016 election cycle. Any actions taken by the Russian state should be considered blowback from our own policies; not hostile aggression. The responsibility for the outcome of the election is largely due to domestic accountability, or lack there of. As it has been pointed out on numerous occasions by many individuals of influence such as Senator Bernie Sanders "Republicans did not win, Democrats lost". With this in mind, we must recognize that the perception of a Russian boogeyman is artificially being used to distract against the hostile elements that have taken positions of power in the nation through illegitimate means.

Steve Bannon declared at the Conservative Political Action Conference in February 2017 that the function of the Trump administration is the "deconstruction of the administrative system". This is a direct threat to the security of persons on a level not seen in our history. Entire governmental branches and agencies responsible for the well-being of our entire citizenry is being destroyed with the human toll yet to be realized. The month since Trump's election has destabilized the US from its position as a global leader, and it is rapidly destabilizing as a competent functioning government. Bannon continued his declaration by stating that he and his allies were at war and had to fight every day. This war is a psychological delusion that is being waged against the peoples of the United States, not a hostile element internal or external to the United States. The inherent nature of the multicultural nation of the Union of States that came together to form a collective federal government is the enemy of Bannon and his allies; who have repeatedly proven to have strong ties with white nationalist/supremacist philosophies. These forces in one form or another, since the day of the birth of the United States, has weaken the integrity of the federal government. This hostile takeover of the federal government by these antithetical mentalities of racial supremacy now threaten not only civil war but world war and global extinction. Their beliefs are not based in reality and actively threaten our species with suicidal destruction, whether by rejecting climate change or destroying safety regulations like preventing industrial toxins being dumped in our nation's water and ecosystems.Their beliefs also relies on employing the Madman theory when dealing with foreign powers; and invoking an increasingly militaristic foreign policy based on unilateral decisions.

The Deep State has to make some serious decisions, it can either cease the asininity of trying to draw a conflict with the Russian boogyman and aid the citizens in their plight towards securing constitutional rights and the rights of life, liberty, and happiness. Or it can continue its apathetical push towards a Russian-US conflict, destroying the essence of the United States in the process through its ignorance and unwillingness to recognize the situation fully. The choice is not simply with the leaderships of the institutions that make up the Deep State; but with the every day working people who make those institutions function and who uphold the codes of conduct and ethics required for institutional responsibility and competency in a functioning civilization. Time will tell whether or not they wise up and aid the peoples of the United States, or let Rome burn for the sake of their own power play. The choice remains in their hands.

This Is How Your Same-Sex Marriage Affects Me As A Catholic Woman

I hear you over there, Bible Bob.

It won't.

Wait, what?

I promise you did read that right. Not what you were expecting me to say, right? Who another person decides to marry will never in any way affect my own marriage whatsoever. Unless they try to marry the person that I want to, then we might have a few problems.

As a kid, I was raised, baptized, and confirmed into an old school Irish Catholic church in the middle of a small, midwestern town.

Not exactly a place that most people would consider to be very liberal or open-minded. Despite this I was taught to love and accept others as a child, to not cast judgment because the only person fit to judge was God. I learned this from my Grandpa, a man whose love of others was only rivaled by his love of sweets and spoiling his grandkids.

While I learned this at an early age, not everyone else in my hometown — or even within my own church — seemed to get the memo. When same-sex marriage was finally legalized country-wide, I cried tears of joy for some of my closest friends who happen to be members of the LGBTQ community.

I was happy while others I knew were disgusted and even enraged.

"That's not what it says in the bible! Marriage is between a man and a woman!"

"God made Adam and Eve for a reason! Man shall not lie with another man as he would a woman!"

"Homosexuality is a sin! It's bad enough that they're all going to hell, now we're letting them marry?"

Alright, Bible Bob, we get it, you don't agree with same-sex relationships. Honestly, that's not the issue. One of our civil liberties as United States citizens is the freedom of religion. If you believe your religion doesn't support homosexuality that's OK.

What isn't OK is thinking that your religious beliefs should dictate others lives.

What isn't OK is using your religion or your beliefs to take away rights from those who chose to live their life differently than you.

Some members of my church are still convinced that their marriage now means less because people are free to marry whoever they want to. Honestly, I wish I was kidding. Tell me again, Brenda how exactly do Steve and Jason's marriage affect yours and Tom's?

It doesn't. Really, it doesn't affect you at all.

Unless Tom suddenly starts having an affair with Steve their marriage has zero effect on you. You never know Brenda, you and Jason might become best friends by the end of the divorce. (And in that case, Brenda and Tom both need to go to church considering the bible also teaches against adultery and divorce.)

I'll say it one more time for the people in the back: same-sex marriage does not affect you even if you or your religion does not support it. If you don't agree with same-sex marriage then do not marry someone of the same sex. Really, it's a simple concept.

It amazes me that I still actually have to discuss this with some people in 2017. And it amazes me that people use God as a reason to hinder the lives of others.

As a proud young Catholic woman, I wholeheartedly support the LGBTQ community with my entire being.

My God taught me to not hold hate so close to my heart. He told me not to judge and to accept others with open arms. My God taught me to love and I hope yours teaches you the same.

All Good Things Are Wild And Free, Right?

Free your soul and be happy.

The word 'free' can allude to many things. My mom always says that nothing is ever free. But what about your soul? Is it free? Does everyone have a free soul? I think that everyone has the potential to have a free soul but whether or not they decide to live that lifestyle is up to them.

Until recently, I never thought of myself as a free spirit, but I am. Although I didn’t begin with a free soul, I evolved into one. Life throws you trials and tribulations and it's meant for you to grow from these obstacles. And I have.

People always question me about my careless attitude. Careless meaning that I don’t care what others think. I never actually answer the question, but here’s the answer: once you figure out that you can’t make everyone happy by the decisions you make and start doing the things that make you happy is when you become free from others.

The phrase “damned if you, damned if you don’t” applies here perfectly. People will find something wrong with you and your life decisions no matter what you decide. There’s no way to make everyone happy, it's just not possible.

I don’t wake up in the mornings to please anyone but myself. To have a free soul you must do the things that make you and you alone happy.

Free souls are happy souls. Finding inner happiness takes time. It takes being at rock bottom to find your own happiness. Being happy within means that you don’t have to rely on anyone to be happy, and that’s how it should be.

When you give other people the privilege of holding the key to your happiness chances are they’ll fail you. Other people can contribute to your overall happiness but always remember who you are and put your happiness first because if you’re not happy with yourself then how do you expect to keep someone else happy?

Do you, boo. It’s so cheesy, I know, but it’s how to keep you and your soul free from others control. Live your life and live it like there’s no tomorrow. Don’t live your days full of worry, regret, and unhappiness. Do the things that are necessary for you to be happy, who cares what other people think. If you’re unhappy and they’re happy, how is this benefitting you? It’s not.

Be selfish. Be selfish with your happiness and your freedom.

You don’t owe anything to anyone. Once you figure out that your own happiness should come first that’s when you begin to be free. And just a hint, the people that you’re trying so hard to please and make happy, don’t care about your happiness. So why should you care about theirs?

If you want to be free, then do you. Do the things that make you happy, stop caring about what others think. Find that inner happiness that is guaranteed every day, because it’s your own.
