The start sign for RV-implementation

More than 20 years ago over 200 nations agreed to reestablish the value of all currencies of all nations. They all agreed to change it from the production of profits from earning of the nation to the actual in-ground unmined assets precious metals, oil natural gas, and many other rare earth assets. Today, 209 nations are in agreeance. Some countries have honest objectives, while some have criminal objectives making it a very slow process that is finally about to be completed. RV stands for “revaluation” of internationally recognized currencies in relation to the new gold standard re-instituted to solve the global debt crisis, quietly, via international treaty and soon to be announced.
The world’s poorest nations in Africa and Asia have the most valuable deposits of very valuable minerals, metals, and rare earth. Some of these poor nations will become some of the worlds wealthiest nations overnight when their currencies are revalued according to there in-ground assets. Three currencies that are expected to rise tremendously are in Zimbabwe (Zim), Iraq (Dinar), and Vietnam (Dong). As a result, world financial power will change, tremendously, in the fulfillment of Bible prophecy of the wealth of the unrighteous being stored up for the righteous (Proverbs 13:22 and Job 27:17).
When honest people of the world benefit and poverty is eliminated, humanitarian projects will be the norm.
Do you have a humanitarian plan?
Long before NESARA, a project was born to restore the United States of America to its original Constitution of the Republic, and to remove the structure of the Corporate United States. This project began in the early 1950s and involved intelligent and patriotic minds of both civilian and military background. These people over the years became known as the White Knights. Out of this restoration process came the Prosperity Programs, the Farmer Claims, and finally NESARA.
The children of the wealthy families on our planet became concerned about the future of our civilization when they observed the poverty, disease, starvation, and suffering of the masses. They saw the imbalance between the wealth of the few and the destitution of the many and agreed among themselves to try to correct it. One hundred of these wealthy children, who came to be known as “wealthy visionaries”, put one million dollars each, of their money, into investment programs in the 1980s called “roll programs” to generate funds to be used for humanitarian purposes. Thus, the Prosperity Programs were born. Gradually, news spread to the public and millions of people invested small amounts of their meager funds to aid in the success of these various Prosperity Programs.
Also, during the 1970s and 1980s, many U.S. farmers were losing their land, machinery, buildings, and cattle due to fraudulent foreclosures by the Federal Reserve Banks, in cooperation with the IRS. Many farmers joined forces and brought a class-action lawsuit against the U.S. Government, the non-federal Federal Reserve Bank, and the IRS, for fraud against the farmers.
The Global Economic Security and Reform Act is a global prosperity program on the verge of being announced and activated. This program is backed by precious metals deliverable well above quattuordecillion of US dollars (40 zeros).
All 8 billion of the human population will benefit from GESARA and the Earth will finally be free to experience itself as the abundant planet it was created to be. Few realize that there is more than enough gold to make all human currencies in circulation. This means that any and every human being could become a multi-millionaire instantly without debt of any kind if only given the resources.
GESARA is about sharing the gold resources saved from humanity to humanity with humanity for humanity around the planet in a fair way without any individual on Earth being out of reach of GESARA wealth redistribution program. And no individual or organization anywhere on Earth will be able to stop GESARA once it starts.
The volume of GESARA will cancel all debts of credit cards, mortgages and other bank debts due to the illegal and corrupt form of banking and government activity around the world. The income tax will be abolished as well, as GESARA will make personal taxes monetarily unnecessary.
A new 14% single rate tax on new non-core items will provide a sustainable revenue stream for all national governments after GESARA. There will be greater benefits for the elderly and children after GESARA.
Thus, after the announcement of the GCR / RV, we will be exchanging ZIM, DINAR, Ruphia, Dong with all the humanitarian aid projects required to participate in the larger NDA rates. You can participate in this great humanitarian project of prosperity, your registration will be on the first list of beneficiaries.
For this, you must register. Soon the payments must be announced and you are no longer able to register. After registration, you will get real-time GCR/RV updates. For your currency holder ZIM, DONG, DINAR, after your registration, we will be passing all exchange instructions. Register here
What is this all about?
BREXIT will grant every nation their own tools to abandon the Eurozone straightjacket rules. In turn, nations will regain their sovereign independence, instead of dictating the severe restrictions on freedom of action or expression by the unelected EU-clowns. All nations will be able to rightly reclaim what never should have been sacrificed in the first place, the right to govern themselves.
The Cabal was the name given to five ministers who advised Charles II after the dismissal of Edward Hyde, 1st Earl of Clarendon. The title ‘Cabal’, despite its sinister overtones term-wise, came from the surnames or titles held by the five men in the Cabal. The Cabal operated between 1667 and 1673.
The old traditional view was that Charles took the opportunity after the dismissal of Clarendon to extend his own power at the expense of Parliament. However, the more modern view is that Charles needed Parliament for financial reasons and could not dispense with them but that he used domestic and international problems to his advantage when given the opportunity to do so. In this, he was no different from other recent monarchs – through the end of his father, Charles I, meant that Charles II had to tread carefully.
The five men who Charles gathered around him to push for what he wanted were:
- Thomas Clifford
- Sir Henry Bennet, Baron Arlington
- George Buckingham
- Anthony Ashley
- John Maitland, Earl of Lauderdale
These men should have been united in what they sort to achieve. However, the politics of the day meant that the five men in the Cabal were keen to assist the king but as keen to be seen by him as being the most important member of the Cabal with the most influence. Therefore, infighting between the men and political intrigue was common.
“The ministers had no common policy or aim and their greatest concern was their own advancement and that of their supporters. To achieve this they were more than willing to discredit each other.” (N Fellows)
The two most dominant members of the Cabal were Clifford and Arlington. The latter was a Member of Parliament and held a number of important political positions, including sitting on the Committee for Foreign Affairs. Despite its title, this committee also dealt with internal security and members on it would have been privy to a great deal of confidential information.
There is little doubt among historians that a pecking order existed within the Cabal. Each man presumably wanted to advance his own influence and that could only have occurred at the expense of the other four. With all five members of the Cabal doing the same, it is doubtful if they could have fully focussed their attention on what they were meant to be doing – advising the king on policy issues.
“The council (Cabal) consists of ministers with a mortal hatred of one another, who seek only to be avenged upon each other at the expense of their master’s service; this means that there is great uncertainty in the resolutions which are taken that one can never be sure of anything.” (French Ambassador to England)
Critical listening and critical thinking are the key aspects of effective communication. That entails listening and thinking on a deeper level. Most people are thinking about what their response will be when engaged in a discussion, rather than focusing on what the speaker is saying.
Effective communication requires the listener to hear what the other person is saying before they respond. Interrupting the speaker cuts off the flow of thought. Therefore, people should avoid interrupting the speaker. The height of respect is to acknowledge the speaker, hear what the speaker is conveying, and then respond, once the speaker has concluded.
The hardest part of communication is to remain non-judgemental of the speaker and to acknowledge that there may be more than one perspective on a subject or issue. Few people are willing to accept the viewpoints of others without an argument. Although debating an issue is healthy, arguing from a specific viewpoint may not yield a healthy result. Words start wars. But most people use words unwisely, without thinking about the damage words can do. This is evident in relationships between couples, parents and children, friends and associates, and co-workers.
In today’s political arena, it is clear that people are not cognizant of the damage their words do in their communities and in the world. People are not taught about the power of words. They should learn to use them frugally, ethically, and for the highest good.
When our country’s leadership cares less about lying about their policies, actions, and private endeavors, we the people are in deep trouble because “Follow the leader” is in effect and young people pick up the bad habits of those in charge. This is evident not only in politics but in religion, education, and economics.
Lying is cheating at its lowest level. When young people learn that those in high places get away with cheating, stealing, and lying, they follow suit and the fabric of society suffers. Good people speaking well is a goal that more of us should aspire to.
INTERNATIONAL DAY FOR THE ABOLITION OF SLAVERY MORE TIMELY THAN EVER
By Dinizulu Gene Tinnie
It is a fair guess that most Americans consider slavery to be a thing of the past, officially ended in the US in 1865, although more thoughtful minds among us are keenly aware that “the peculiar institution” of slavery, which defined most of this country’s history, lives on today in many forms, such as the prison system, sharecropping, migrant labor camps, under the cover of the foster care system, and among the millions of workers who are not paid a living wage.
And perhaps most Americans are vaguely aware of global worker exploitation to produce everything from raw materials and components for our most sophisticated technological gadgets to the cheapest novelties and trinkets possible, but few dare call this system of production by its truthful name of slavery.
It may also be easily forgotten that slavery, as we will recall from the history of the Middle Passage which forcibly brought millions of Africans across the ocean, also includes human trafficking, and the brutal, exploitative practices of that barbaric business, such as extortion of the wages of the survivors who find illegal employment in wealthy nations, not to mention those, often children, sold into sex trafficking.
A Day of Awareness
It is with such concerns in mind that the United Nations, has designated December 2 (a date known in American history as the anniversary of the 1859 hanging of Abolitionist John Brown) as an International Day of awareness to call global attention to the pervasive crimes of slavery in our time.
According to the UN, “The International Day for the Abolition of Slavery, 2 December, marks the date of the adoption, by the General Assembly, of the United Nations Convention for the Suppression of the Traffic in Persons and of the Exploitation of the Prostitution of Others (resolution 317[IV] of 2 December 1949).”
The UN further explains:
Slavery is not merely a historical relic. According to the International Labour Organisation (ILO) more than 40 million people worldwide are victims of modern slavery. Although modern slavery is not defined in law, it is used as an umbrella term covering practices such as forced labour, debt bondage, forced marriage, and human trafficking. Essentially, it refers to situations of exploitation that a person cannot refuse or leave because of threats, violence, coercion, deception, and/or abuse of power.
In addition, more than 150 million children are subject to child labour, accounting for almost one in ten children around the world.
Facts and figures:
• An estimated 40.3 million people are in modern slavery, including 24.9 in forced labour and 15.4 million in forced marriages.
• There are 5.4 victims of modern slavery for every 1,000 people in the world.
• 1 in 4 victims of modern slavery are children.
• Out of the 24.9 million people trapped in forced labour, 16 million people are exploited in the private sector such as domestic work, construction or agriculture; 4.8 million people in forced sexual exploitation, and 4 million people in forced labour imposed by state authorities.
• Women and girls are disproportionately affected by forced labour, accounting for 99% of victims in the commercial sex industry, and 58% in other sectors.
(Further information from the UN is available at these links:
On the Homefront
While the International Day is welcomed for calling attention to the many forms and magnitude of modern slavery, it is even more important as an occasion for awareness of actions and solutions, as those who are victimized, directly or indirectly, find ways to address the problem.
For example, in a timely fashion, the regular “Building Bridges” program on independent nonprofit New York radio station WBAI-FM, shares this notice via the Internet:
Farmworker women launch their “Harvest Without Violence” campaign to end sexual violence in Wendy’s fast food supply chain featuring The Coalition of Immokalee [Florida] Workers
Now, amidst the stories that are surfacing about sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape against women, too often low-wage woman workers have been subjected to sexual violence against their person in their workplace, but their voices have oftentimes been eclipsed. And, we barely think about the workers who are responsible for the bounty of food on our tables.
So, “Building Bridges” is off to join the formidable farmworker women leaders of the Coalition of Immokalee Workers (“CIW”) for a major “Harvest without Violence” march. The CIW Women’s Group traveled to the Big Apple to demand a meeting with Wendy’s Board Chairman and major shareholder Nelson Peltz to share their powerful stories and demand Wendy’s do its part to end sexual violence in the fields. Join the farmworkers in their Boycott Wendy’s march through Midtown Manhattan to Trian Partners, the multi-billion dollar asset management firm founded by Nelson Peltz, the non-executive chairman of The Wendy’s Company, based in New York. Declare that farmworker women should not have to surrender their dignity for the right to put food on their families’ tables!
Year-Round Awareness, Action, and Support
This single example, like the single day dedicated to the Abolition of modern Slavery, serves as a reminder of how many similar situations exist and how many more days of the year there are which demand awareness and resolve by thoughtful citizens everywhere to abolish all forms of modern slavery and ensure social justice, as articulated in the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
In America, these concerns become increasingly timely as traditional jobs are increasingly lost to automation or shipped overseas, real wages remain flat while living costs increase, graduates enter limited job markets burdened with student loan debt, and the great divide between the wealthiest few and the vast majority continues to widen, aided and abetted by complicit political leadership, all of which threaten us with new, much broader forms of actual slavery by other names.
This conversation stemmed from a discussion on the various religions and the history created by people:
The discussion began with two Professors, women of color, Dr. F.A. and Dr. J.C., explaining to C.G., a Jewish retired teacher (K-12), about how black children have been disenfranchised by public school teachers, principals, and guidance counselors. C.G. was so touched by this information that she began to cry. Of course, tears are the pressure valve of the heart and C.G. did not know this had happened. She was one of two white teachers at a Detroit public school with a population of 99.9% black children.
Dr. J.C. had just returned from giving a presentation at a conference on “The Problem of Discipline” in public schools. She and her two panelists agreed that black children did not have discipline problems but were victims of what Dr. Joy DeGruy calls Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome. Black children are taught by white teachers who are not sensitive to their family structure, lack of attention at home when it comes to academics, financial challenges, and the lack of reading materials they are fed in school that are relevant to their life experiences.
The discussion that ensued was that Dr. J.C. stated the involvement of Jewish owners of slave ships and as the insurers of the cargo – human beings captured and kidnapped from African villages. C.G. disputed this claim and found research to dispute it:
This disputes what you said. Jews are only 2% of the world population now, so even if SOME owned slaves (which is awful, Jews in Jamaica – 12 Jews owned slaves – only 4%)! it could never have been the propensity of Jews. This Professor at Berkeley specialized in this subject and said the book saying Jews were financiers was inaccurate and was a way to spread antisemitism. David Duke and Faracon (sp?) used this information for the scapegoating of Jews. Islamists and early Christians wanted to falsify history to blame Jews.

First, this is how you spell Louis Farrakhan‘s name. This does NOT mean I agree with anything he says. So, let’s be clear about that.
Next, I did not say anything about Jews ‘owning‘ slaves. I said they owned the slave ships and the insurance companies that insured the cargo, which happened to be human beings in this instance. These enterprises yielded large sums of money for European Jews (not Hebrews who are from Ethiopia).
These are the names of the slave ships: http://home.btclick.com/jabu/ships.htm
Below is a list of the Jewish slave ships and the Jewish owners. We know that Africans sold Africans into slavery. However, they could not have done so if there was no market and they certainly could not have known the treachery these people would face aboard the ships and wherever they landed in South America, the Caribbean, and America.

Further reading on that page:
“Jews also took an active part in the Dutch colonial slave trade; indeed, the bylaws of the Recife and Mauricia congregations (1648) included an imposta (Jewish tax) of five soldos for each Negro slave a Brazilian Jew purchased from the West Indies Company. Slave auctions were postponed if they fell on a Jewish holiday. In Curacao in the seventeenth century, as well as in the British colonies of Barbados and Jamaica in the 18th century, Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.
“This was no less true on the North American mainland where, during the 18th century, Jews participated in the ‘triangular trade’ that brought slaves from Africa to the West Indies and there exchanged them for molasses, which was taken to New England and converted into rum for sale in Africa. Isaac Da Costa of Charleston in the 1750’s, David Franks of Philadelphia in the 1760’s, and Aaron Lopez of Newport in the late 1760’s and early 1770’s dominated Jewish slave trading on the American continent.”
Dr. Raphael discusses the central role of the Jews in the New World commerce and the African slave trade (pp. 23-25):
SEVENTEENTH AND EIGHTEENTH CENTURIES JEWISH INTER ISLAND TRADE
Dr. JC related that “In 1999, I visited the first Jewish temple built in Curacao.”
Regarding insurance companies that benefitted from the trade of humans in the middle passage:
Dr. JC continued:
It is clear that ALL white people did not participate in the middle passage and that only a handful of white slave owners ran the trade. However, the supposition that whites are superior to blacks and that they should be privileged has benefitted ALL white people and been the demise of ALL black people or people of so-called minority groups, which also is not true. Although the dollar amount of the wealth of this family is said to be unfounded, the Rothschild family is a wealthy family descending from Mayer Amschel Rothschild, a court Jew to the German Landgraves of Hesse-Kassel in the Free City of Frankfurt, who established his banking business in the 1760s.
Creation of Israel, 1948. On May 14, 1948, David Ben-Gurion, the head of the Jewish Agency, proclaimed the establishment of the State of Israel. U.S. President Harry S. Truman recognized the new nation on the same day.

About the continent to which the Middle East belongs to:
Some definitions include Turkey, part of which is in Europe, all of North Africa, and Asia across to Afghanistan. The most normal definition of the Middle East, you might say, includes parts of eastern North Africa (Egypt, for example) and the far west of Asia. It’s in Asia, except for the part (according to some descriptions) that’s in North Africa. It all depends on who’s doing the line drawing. For the US Dept. of State, the “Near East” is in SW Asia and “North Africa” is, well, in northern Africa, including Mauritania and Sudan.
The bottom line is that people say and write whatever fits their story. That does not make what they say or write the TRUTH.
Meanwhile, Who Are The Hebrew Israelites?
This is just some food for thought. It is not meant to be anti-semetic. This is information that Pan-Africanists have uncovered to help children of African descent and so-called Native Americans, the Moors, understand who they really are and how their history has been misappropriated and twisted.
I learned a whole lot today and I love you both. I believe it is so important to get to the Truth or in today’s world, receive the Truth. We are in the midst of this major, major transformation where so much is being revealed to us. It is mind-boggling. Our emotions can become so entangled in our reforming this disconnected world to one of Unity.
Here is my approach:http://comingtothetable.org
Herein is a discussion with my good friend Dinizulu Gene Tinnie on the validity of the claims of Her Highness Divine: Empress Wendy Farica Washitaw (1927-2014), the late reigning empress of the Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Empire and leader of the Emperial Washitaw de Dugdahmoundyah Nation. SHE WAS THE LEGAL HEIR to the Maison Rouge land grant that was skillfully willed to her great-great-great-grandfather Henry Turner, son of the Marquis de Maison Rouge, the child of French Nobility was rescued by Baron Philip de Bastrop at the beginning of the unrest culmination with the French Revolution.
Her Highness Divine: Empress Wendy Farica Washitaw
One of the folks I reached out to, wouldn’t you know, is Denise Wilson-El’s son, Guy Forchion, who is the executive director of the Virginia Key Beach Park Trust, asking him if his Mom might have some insights on this state of affairs as described in the article. The other is Jeanette Stephens-El, aka Raining Deer, who, by the way, has a new book out called “On Eagles’ Wings: Prayers for the President” (whomever [s]he might be, going forward), and is looking for venues in which to present it in SoFla (or SoFlo in ASALH newspeak) before the election, so all ideas and insights are welcome.
Thank you for reminding me about the UN Conference on Indigenous Peoples. That is not where I last heard news of the Empress, but I believe she was at another event, possibly the webcast following the unveiling of “The Ark of Return” Permanent Memorial to the Victims of Slavery and the Transatlantic Slave Trade on the UN Headquarters Visitors Plaza last year.
As you know, one (of many!) of the disturbing phenomena in this land of (selective) opportunity, where the questionable bourgeois-driven concept of “ragged individualism” has taken root, is that “people without a place” (or who at least perceive themselves as being without a place on earth) find fertile ground here to take ownership, a la Columbus, of anything they think they can claim and control access to. This is often land, of course, but also any necessary goods and services, which they make available at a price (which they set, of course), holding the needy hostage, and, of late, this tendency has spread to include “intellectual properties” (including such absurd madness as Monsanto claiming exclusive patents of GMO agricultural products with which they hope to replace the natural food supply), and even, to get to the point of where all this is leading, rightful and worthy political causes, particularly those which are not already “taken.” Thus we find self-appointed authorities on “Indian Tribes” and their history, and even more ignobly, supposed non-profit “Foundations” trading quite profitably in “Indian Artifacts” that supposedly benefit the Tribes, but a reading of the fine print reveals that Indian Poverty is big business, and therefore needs to be kept going.
Such, it has long been my suspicion, is the Southern Law & Poverty Center, which focuses supposedly on much of the injustice that is visited upon the African American community and on identifying, cataloguing, and monitoring “hate groups,” but not without an agenda of carving out a market niche in the oppression business for themselves. Moreover, in the spirit of non-hateful, non-pathological paranoia — by which generations of Ancestors wisely survived to give life to us and our progeny — it is not difficult to read into that organization, at least on the part of some elements within it, an agenda to use African Americans as a front for seeking out and identifying anti-Jewish, or anti-other-ethnic hate groups.
America was built from its foundations on “slick,” questionable, and outright criminal business practices (and we have a Constitution written to protect them), so, as you point out, there is much Freudian psychosis and collective guilt in the land, accounting for the ever-so-self righteous posturing of the most criminal minds in seeking to “root out crime.” Specifically, as Malcolm X, as sharp and astute observer of the society which brought so much havoc to his own family as there ever was, once stated, “White people are artful at making the criminal look like the victim and the victim look like the criminal.” I mean, we are in a country in which for most of its history, holding “slaves” — imprisoned forced laborers who could be violated and exploited at will and denied all human rights with impunity — was NOT considered a crime, whereas escaping from such pathological barbarity WAS a crime, punished in the most barbaric ways, as would be any act of being free and brave long after slavery had supposedly ended.
White supremacy equates equality with oppression. What is the whole point of being white if all you are going to have is the same rights and opportunities as everyone else, if there are no exclusive neighborhoods, job opportunities, healthcare, etc. The late brilliant South African author Jordan K. Ngubane (whose novel, modeled on the traditional Zulu umlando, or epic format, entitled “Ushaaba: The Hurtle to Blood River” is a most enlightened work) very incisively dissected the Apartheid system and its motivations, and the radical distinctions between White and Black concepts of law and value systems, In the latter case, he wisely observed that for the invasive White settlers — people without a place — a thing had value because they possessed it ant other people did not. It mattered not whether there was the intrinsic or natural value attached to whatever it was, only that exclusivity was established, usually by inflating the price and controlling the distribution of money.
So how does such a society, particularly when slavery was being openly upheld and enforced as a legal institution, view something like Maroon communities, daring to survive without either being dependent on or giving profit to the parasite class? Of course that class would see this as nothing less than a “threat to national security,” as would be any uncontrolled or uncontained Native American presence. Should these Maroons go so far as to not only survive but to acquire some of the things (the parasites only live in a world of things – to have, to do, to be – which reduces everything to commodities) that are supposedly exclusively reserved for themselves, then insane mode is switched on, and literally anything goes, as we would see in Tulsa and Rosewood.
This is what I am reading in the snide sarcasm and cheap shots that this article about the Washitaw Nation by the SLPC has produced (in such stark contradiction to its prominent logo of balanced scales. Supposedly of justice). The resentment is palpable, responsibility is cast to the wind, and the pretense of law becomes nothing more than a propaganda weapon against a group of people who have escaped outside control and ownership.
All of the above, of course, just forms Chapter 26,473 of the indictment against the invaders, which can barely keep up with the continuous production of evidence. But that is all “their problem.” Our issue is of another nature and importance. We do not like to hear things like “No crime is ever committed without some participation on the part of the victim,” any more than we want to hear that in an auto accident where one driver is clearly at fault that the other had some degree of voluntary participation, perhaps by not being sufficiently observant and defensive, perhaps even by being in the wrong place for the wrong reasons. That kind of stuff gets too abstract and philosophical and messes up our feelings of righteousness and lets our guilty-as-sin adversaries off the hook a bit, and we don’t need to hear that.
Yet, we, and especially those who comprise the Global Elite of Descendants of Middle Passage Survivors, like the Descendants of Trail of Tears and Genocide Survivors – those whom “History has forced, obligated, challenged, and blessed to be Truth knowers, Truth keepers, and Truth tellers,” are nobody and nothing if we are not a people who is committed to “keepin’ it real” even when everybody all around us is going nuts, and calling that a normal state, questioning our right to be alive. We, who are formed of an intelligence honed and refined and polished and kept alive and vibrant over countless millennia of serious village palavers beneath the sacred iroko tree, during which self-determination was not even a word or a term because there was no alternative to it, we who have the responsibility to honor all those Ancestors and all those generations Yet Unborn who are alive within us, depending on our every action to make the world right for them, we may “Wear the Mask” and do much of what it takes to survive, but we have to be responsible and accountable.
We cannot, as we negotiate the delicate path from where we are to where we need to be through a yard full of rabid dogs, cannot relax our guard, cannot consider any one(s) of us to be disposable, cannot make silly compromises with demonic forces. We have to be very astute and wise in what we, as Maroons, in hostile territory, with limited resources, do to maintain our freedom and sanity.
It is on THOSE standards that we have to weigh the actual decisions and actions taken by the leadership and the body of the Washitaw Nation. We have inherited wisdom. We have divination systems and proven ways to seek and receive Ancestral Guidance. We have to evaluate the validity of strategies, the costs vs. the benefits, the reasons why we do the things we do, because we have always known to focus on the actions, not the persons (“Hate the deed, not the doer.” “You don’t have to be a horrible person to do horrible things,” etc.)
This is less about judging the allegations being made against the Washitaw Nation regarding past actions than about formulating a strategy for dealing with those allegations that serves our future – the future of ALL of us. For this reason, this case will bear close watching and a strong infusion of knowledge (light rather than heat) for us to fully be responsible players in the fate of our people going forward.

Sam’s Club CEO Under Fire From White Men For Insisting on Diversity
America is a corporation based on free enterprise, meaning that anyone, white, black, brown, yellow, or red can start their own business. Blaming others for your failure is nonsensical. Each of us, every human being on Earth has a gift that is uniquely theirs.
It costs less than $100 to incorporate a business in any state in the United States. I’m not sure what it costs in other countries. But the corporate tax per year is $150 before May 1 in the U.S. So for $100 plus $150 per year, you’re in business. Your target market can be anyone or just the people in your particular group. Advertisement is the key to doing business – letting people know you offer a product or service.
The problem is that people do not educate themselves on entrepreneurship. They are lazy and would rather get a J-O-B working to make somebody else (usually white men in business) RICH! The moment you take a job, you have placed a value on your time.
- If you are not getting paid what you think you are worth, who’s fault is that?
- If you don’t get the necessary degrees to increase your worth, who’s fault is that?
Stop blaming somebody else for your own shortcomings. Evidently Rosalind Brewster did the work to make herself valuable to Sam’s Club. She’s right about the importance of diversity. But how many women and people of color have done the work she has to be in the position she is in?
Either get an education or start your own business or do both. That is the solution in my opinion.
