  1. April 15, 2019 Prayers for the Future of the Planet A shaman priestess Is deep in thought Engaged in Meditation on the fate Of the earth She is deep in the cosmic woods In the world between worlds Where she is communing With the spirits of the universe Who listen to her tale of woe She tells them Of the rise of the neo fascists And the refusal to address The possible end of the world Due to run away climate change She prays and prays And finally She receives an answer More a prediction It is all up to humans She has two visions Of a possible future Two contrasting visions One a dystopian nightmare The other an optimistic vision The first The neo fascists Seize control And usher in a dystopian nightmare That ends with utter destruction Nuclear war Nuclear winter Ends climate change As civilization ends And mankind retreat to caves And it happens In a blink of an eye In less than five years The world will end Game over civilization ends The second vision The optimistic vision Humanity wakes up From their collective night mare Throws off the neo fascist cabal And begin to change the world Making the economy works For all of us Not just the corrupt 1 percent The so-called masters of the Universe They are overthrown In a people’s power revolution All over the world People wake up Demand change And slowly the world Begins to recover And overcome The dark hours Of the present age The shaman priestess Returns home To spread the word It up to us To choose our fate The end is indeed near It is darker than you think But it is not over yet If we choose the path Of the cosmic light And overthrow The neo fascist cabal And restore democracy And peace will break out And all will end well If not Well she says You have been warned The universe has spoken So, mote it be April 16, 2019 Why do all fake Natives call themselves “Cherokees”? Erasure Poem So many fake Indians these days Elizabeth Warren is one And according to my DNA results I am too But my grand-parents spoke Cherokee my mom claims And they disappeared into the hills She claims Is the DNA test wrong? Was I adopted ? Or is it possible That I am a real deal A real Cherokee Or am I fake Cherokee??? A Cherokee weighed in on this on Quora First, I would never call them “fake Natives”. They are 99% white, mostly Blue-collar, and New Age Hippie, Anglo-Americans who are simply lost without their own specific identity that they can proudly Claim, so therefore, they search for a certain Popular, Romanticized segment of Indigenous People that will “fit” into their Family’s historical Lore. Second, it just happens to ALWAYS be … the Cherokee … sometimes, either Blackfoot or Lakota. AND, “My GGM was a Cherokee Princess”, as an add-on VALUE. This is primarily because of the vast area formerly inhabited by the Cherokee. However, the tribes’ interaction with European immigrants since colonial times, led to a great deal of intermarriage with non-indigenous populations. In many cases people have limited knowledge of the other Native American nations, that inhabited the areas in which they live. However, a lot of this is wishful thinking, and these people have African American or other non-European ancestry. It is fashionable to claim indigenous ancestry , in an attempt to legitimize t Their sense of belonging on our lands. The reason is simple, they don’t know the names of the other tribes. There has never been a song called “Indian Reservation” about Apache People or any other tribe but, the Cherokee. “Indian Reservation” by Paul Revere and the Raiders. So if those people aren’t Cherokee by blood at least it’s in spirit. And so I conclude I may be part Cherokee Part of the lost tribe Of the Cherokee But who really knows My mother took many things With her to the grave Lots of family secrets Things I will never know But in my heart I know That I am part Cherokee And so I will proudly Claim I am part Cherokee In spirt If not in blood Source document: Source quora My great grandmother was a Native American, why doesn't it show on my results, not enough DNA samples from that tribe or is the extent of the genocide a possible reason? Sam Morningstar, Native American, Ground Combat Veteran (Iraq) Answered Apr 5 Statistically speaking, most Americans claiming their great-grandmother was Native American are just passing on family lore, and the ancestor in question wasn’t actually Native American at all, or the the lineage was much further back in their line (if it’s accurate at all). The second thing is that there is now this recent narrative that is going around the internet that says the sample set of Native Americans in the DNA testing databases is too small, and that is what is throwing off the results for Native American admixture in North America. That’s just more of the rationalization from people fall into the scenario I described in my opening paragraph. Meaning, these are White Americans with the bogus lore that are surprised when “their Native American ancestry” isn’t showing up in DNA tests that they are taking. So, since they already believe or “know” that this exists and great-granny was a Cherokee/Native American they look for alternative narratives that help to explain or rationalize the “false results.” It’s easier than delving into the actual genealogy and correcting the false lore they’ve inherited (and frequently internalized as their “heritage” or part of their identity). The third possibility which is statistically slim, would be that great-granny was Native but of mixed blood, and through random genetic inheritance variation, you just didn’t get enough genetic sequences that can be identified as Native American. Usually, the range where DNA from distant ancestors gets sort of lost is at the GGG grandparent level. But, I supposed it could happen at lower levels for a mixed blood great-grandparent. But, even then, a great-grandparent that was an actual Native American - whether full or mixed blood - would be found with genealogical records confirming their tribal affiliation. The family would be easily traced, and would tie back to a small and finite population. The Native population in 1900 was just around 250,000 people, representing 500+ tribal nations, living in distinct communities. Most weren’t even US citizens until 1924. And they were very well tracked in records from the 1800s through the 1900s (and into present time). It’s very easy to corroborate your “missing” Native American results by doing standard genealogy. Extremely easy There were no communities that hid out or remained in the Ozarks. There were Cherokees that removed west prior to Trail of Tears, moving first to southeast Missouri, then Arkansas. But, they were only in that location briefly. This Arkansas population then moved to Indian Territory when the Eastern contingent was removed in 1838-1839. A few stragglers perhaps lingered on into the early 1840s, before heading to Cherokee Nation west. No community persisted there (just a few individuals families, perhaps). The eastern Texas group wasn’t re-founded in Rusk County until the late 1840s and into the 1850s (prior to Civil War). They were mixed bloods, and were always a small community. They also weren’t hiding. The ones that stayed in the east also weren’t necessarily hiding. A few hundred took up allotments in 1817-19, around the Nantahala and Econluftee River valleys in western NC. They were joined by a few hundred more (that were hiding or escaping the Removal) in the late 1830s, for a total of about 900-1000 souls. The other group that stayed in the east were mixed bloods married to White spouses. They did not have to hide, as they were choosing to stay according to the terms of the Treaty of New Echota. All of these groups were found on the Siler and Chapman Rolls in the early 1850s. Then, there was the Hester Roll in 1884. They were not hiding or passing for white. Also, the intermarriage with Blacks was always historically low for the Cherokee. And it was even lower for the mixed blood Eastern Cherokees. It happened from time to time around Qualla Boundary. But, it wasn’t necessarily common (and it wasn’t escaped slaves). “…my grandparents spoke Cherokee, but none were considered Indian as they were never enrolled anywhere.” The only place where Cherokees continued speaking Cherokee after Removal in 1839 was within the Eastern Band Community. That’s it. Your grandparents most certainly did not speak Cherokee unless they were members of this band. There is effectively no exception this. This community was just around 3,000 by 1924-1928. And the full blood Cherokee speakers would be a smaller subset of this total number. We are talking well under a couple thousand, tops. And you would almost certainly be a member of Eastern Band today if this were true. My great grandmother was a Native American, why doesn't it show on my results, not enough DNA samples from that tribe or is the extent of the genocide a possible reason? I’d say there could be a number of reasons. How do you know your great grandmother was Native American? Which side of the family where these things on. If it is on your father’s side maybe your father really isn’t your biological father. Maybe there was an adoption, you, your relevant parent or your relevant grandparent was adopted. Maybe your sample was mixed up with someone else’s or maybe where you got your DNA sample done was not really reputable. Genocide isn’t going to be the issue with these tests missing something like that. There is also the chance that you don’t have any of your grandmother’s genes. Your relevant grandparent will have half of her genes. Your relevant parent you’d expect to have about 1/4 of your great grandmother’s genes but it could be that your relevant parent ended up not passing on any of your great grandmothers chromosomes or very unlikely, but still possible, doesn’t themselves have any of your grandmothers DNA. Many people do not understand the profound differences between genealogy and genetics. Genealogy is a cultural-defined theory about how people are descended from their ancestors. We imagine that we have one-half of our inheritance from our mothers and half from our fathers. In turn, we imagine we have one-fourth inheritance from each of our grand-parents, and in turn one-eighth from each great-grandparent, and so on. This is a useful model for thinking about the inheritance of property rights, or thinking about who is line next for the throne. Genetics is the study of the biological inheritan... Why do all fake Natives call themselves “Cherokees”? You must be reading Sam Morningstar…we have SO many jokes about the wannabe Cherokees. Cherokee is probably the best known among key indigenous peoples in the colonial US, the most accessible, one of the most successful and very much already organizing themselves like Europeans. The Trail of Tears gives a rather convenient contrived heritage, as well. It’s very probable that many, many people had a Cherokee ancestor, if they were born from seven generations in the South or in the Appalachians. It’s an easy one to catch. By contrast, few people are going to claim Navajo, because of their dis... Not “all,” but many, if not most fakes out there will claim this. This is just part of the larger Cherokee blood lore phenomenon. A lot of these people are from older eastern colonial ancestral roots, and many legitimately have this blood myth or lore about “Cherokee blood.” Meaning, it’s a thing that gets repeated in their families, and they are just running with the claim. Some just take it for what it is, unproven lore. But, some of these people really latch onto this pseudo-identity. The more zealous and those with true mental issues will spin it into much, much, more. So, that’s when yo... Dream 511 fake foods – erasure poem not for posting add fake things So many fake foods These days Hard to keep track Of them all 9 Popular Foods That Are Total Frauds Whether you’re dining out or whipping up an easy dinner at home, you like to think that the foods you eat are as advertised, right? But even though you probably know that Cheez Whiz is a far cry from organic aged cheddar and bottled fruit juices don't grow on trees, Who knew, right? that these foods are masquerading as something they're not. 1. Red Velvet A lot of people obsesses over red velvet cake But if they knew that the ruby-colored dessert was really just artificially colored chocolate cake, think they’d have the same reaction? 2. Wasabi If you’ve ever dipped a chopstick into that creamy green substance on your sushi plate (and got a runny nose and burning throat as reward), we’ve got another surprise for you: That spicy stuff is parading as something it’s not. Traditional Japanese wasabi is freshly grated (it loses its heat within a few minutes of being served) and can cost up to $100 per pound. To save a major chunk of change, your local takeout spot likely serves a substitute that’s really a combination of mustard, horseradish, and green food coloring for the characteristic hue (95 to 99 percent of American sushi restaurants do). The horseradish mixture is still super hot but genuine wasabi has more of a pleasurable kick, and less of a searing, bitter taste. 3. Crab Meat Sorry to bust your bubble again, sushi lovers (especially if your go-to is a California roll): Those crab pieces aren’t, in fact, meat from a creature that lives on the bottom of the sea. So what are you eating? Imitation crab, which is technically called kamaboko, a processed seafood made of surimi (the pulverized paste of white fish flesh). It was invented in Alaska In the late 50’s As a way to salvage Some value From the left over Wasted fish pieces Left over after flash freezing Fish It soon became A huge seller In Japan Then the world The paste is frozen, shaved into flakes, and ground in a vat with starch, egg whites, and crab-like flavorings. Oh yeah, and then it’s colored with orange food dye to make it appear more “crabby.” How’s that for appetizing? Imitation crab meat is like the hot dog of seafood," 100 percent fake And tastes so good 4. White Chocolate File this away for Valentine’s Day: That box of white chocolates isn’t the heart-boosting sweet we’ve come to think of chocolate Real chocolate contains three must-have components: chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, and cocoa solids But the white kind lacks chocolate liquor and cocoa solids —which means it’s also missing flavanols, the antioxidants that give the authentic stuff nutritional benefits. 5. Pomegranate Juice Studies suggest that drinking pomegranate juice may help prevent certain health conditions like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and congestive heart failure . Sound too good to be true? juices claiming to be pomegranate were actually made of grape juice and grape skins. And in 2014, Pom Wonderful successfully sued Coca-Cola for false advertising after its Minute Maid Pomegranate Blueberry blend turned out to be made almost entirely from apple and grape juice, with only 0.1 percent pomegranate juice. 6. Breakfast Syrup Whipping up a batch of waffles this weekend? You may want to think twice before adding your toppings. Most breakfast syrups found at the grocery store are nothing like traditional maple syrup, which can be a healthy choice. Instead of the real stuff from maple trees, lots of commercial versions are made of two types of corn syrup along with a ton of artificial additives and zero nutritious value (sorry, Aunt Jemima). Again 100 percent fake food Designed by the evil food industry Scientists to addict us to their sweat tasting poisonous food 7. Bacon Bits From popcorn to soap and even deodorant, bacon bacon hmmm bacon hmm bacon must have my bacon screams my inner dog continues to be all the rage. But fans of the fatty pork product won’t be too pleased to know that those “bacon bits” are technically vegan! Lacking any animal products, these crispy bites are made of artificially flavored textured soy flour and other ingredients including caramel color, maltodextrin, yeast extract, and flavor enhancers called disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate. 100 percent fake Remember if you can’t pronounce it It is probably bad for you Not all vegan food Is health food 8. Veggie Burgers A vegetable-based patty certainly sounds like the better- for-you option over a juicy, medium-rare burger. The problem is that veggies masquerading as meats are usually made of few, if any, actual vegetables! Instead they’re often filled with over-processed ingredients, including wheat gluten, soy, and vegetable oil. A report also found that some patties contain hexane, a potentially toxic by-product of gasoline refining. WTF Who knew? As if that’s not enough, some veggie burgers are packed with sodium (as much as 400-plus milligrams— more sodium than a single-serving bag of potato chips—per patty). They are in fact The ultimate example Of Fake food 9. Popcorn “Butter” You know that liquid that squirts out of a canister at the theater? No spoiler alert here: It is (dangerously) far from the real, grass-fed deal. This “buttery topping” (as it’s called on manufacturers’ websites) is typically made mainly from hydrogenated soybean oil (a trans fat), artificial flavoring, beta carotene for color, and preservatives. One tablespoon of the topping delivers nine grams of saturated fat— half a day’s limit— plus half a gram of naturally occurring trans fat, the really bad stuff that lowers “good” HDL cholesterol and raises “bad” LDL cholesterol . Even more: One common flavoring agent is diacetyl, a toxic substance that has been associated with lung disease. Bottom line Best to avoid These fake foods And all the other Fake foods That the evil food industry Continues to foster on us Falsely proclaiming It is good for you So very good for you Source document 9 Popular Foods That Are Total Frauds BY LOCKE HUGHES Whether you’re dining out or whipping up an easy dinner at home, you like to think that the foods you eat are as advertised, right? Choosing fresh, whole foods is the easiest way to know you're getting what you pay for, but sometimes the convenience of a restaurant (or Seamless) wins out. EDITOR'S PICK 12 "Healthy" Snacks That Make You Hungrier But even though you probably know that Cheez Whiz is a far cry from organic aged cheddar and bottled fruit juices don't grow on trees, we had no idea that these foods are masquerading as something they're not. (Sadly, we'll never look at sushi the same way!) 1. Red Velvet We all have a friend who obsesses over red velvet cake (and of course, its signature cream cheese frosting. Mmm frosting.). But if they knew that the ruby-colored dessert was really just artificially colored chocolate cake, think they’d have the same reaction? Sadly the trademark red hue doesn't signify any special flavor: Most red velvet recipes call for around one or two tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder as well as about one teaspoon of vanilla extract to create that distinct (and delicious) light, chocolate-y taste. (But some chefs work around it by naturally tinting their tasty treatswith beets.) The Need-to-Know: A slice of red velvet cake or a cupcake isn't going to hurt you, but it's best to consider it an occasional indulgence, and not just because it's packed with sugar. "I try to minimize my exposure to artificial colorings, even though the negative impact of artificial food colorings is still controversial," says Greatist expert Mike Roussell, Ph.D., founder of Naked Nutrition. 2. Wasabi If you’ve ever dipped a chopstick into that creamy green substance on your sushi plate (and got a runny nose and burning throat as reward), we’ve got another surprise for you: That spicy stuff is parading as something it’s not. Traditional Japanese wasabi is freshly grated (it loses its heat within a few minutes of being served) and can cost up to $100 per pound. (And you thought adding guac at Chipotle was pricy.) To save a major chunk of change, your local takeout spot likely serves a substitute that’s really a combination of mustard, horseradish, and green food coloring for the characteristic hue (95 to 99 percent of American sushi restaurants do). The horseradish mixture is still super hot but genuine wasabi has more of a pleasurable kick, and less of a searing, bitter taste. The Need-to-Know: On the bright side, horseradish, like real wasabi, may offer some antibacterial health benefits . But with the horseradish mixture, you're ingesting some artificial flavors and colors as well. However since you're eating such a small amount (unless your mouth has gone numb!) it probably doesn't make much of a difference. Bottom line: There doesn't seem to be any real harm in the fake stuff, Roussell says. 3. Crab Meat Sorry to bust your bubble again, sushi lovers (especially if your go-to is a California roll): Those crab pieces aren’t, in fact, meat from a creature that lives on the bottom of the sea. So what are you eating? Imitation crab, which is technically called kamaboko, a processed seafood made of surimi (the pulverized paste of white fish flesh). The paste is frozen, shaved into flakes, and ground in a vat with starch, egg whites, and crab-like flavorings. Oh yeah, and then it’s colored with orange food dye to make it appear more “crabby.” How’s that for appetizing? The Need-to-Know: "Imitation crab meat is like the hot dog of seafood," Roussell says. "Once in a while it isn't going to kill you, but you should do better for your body." Sushi can still be a healthy choice, but stick with salmon or yellowfin tuna to ensure you’re eating what you think you ordered. Also, Roussell recommends steering clear of tilefish, shark, and swordfish due to their high mercury content. 4. White Chocolate File this away for Valentine’s Day: That box of white chocolates isn’t the heart-boosting sweet we’ve come to think of chocolate as (and use as an excuse to eat it regularly). Real chocolate contains three must-have components: chocolate liquor, cocoa butter, and cocoa solids (often in addition to other ingredients). But the white kind lacks chocolate liquor and cocoa solids—which means it’s also missing flavanols, the antioxidants that give the authentic stuff nutritional benefits. In fact, in 2004 the Food and Drug Administration ruled that in order for a product to be called “white chocolate,” it has to contain at least 20 percent cocoa butter and no more than 55 percent sugar or other sweeteners. (This was to stop many manufacturers from using cheaper fats like vegetable oil instead of including cocoa butter). The Need-to-Know: Despite the FDA ruling, there are still some imposters out there, so look for high-quality white chocolate with cocoa butter, which has an ivory—not pure white—hue. Even better, switch to dark chocolate. 5. Pomegranate Juice Studies suggest that drinking pomegranate juice may help prevent certain health conditions like high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and congestive heart failure . Sound too good to be true? It might be if you’re not picky about which bottle you grab. A number of reports in the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention’s Food Fraud Database found that juices claiming to be pomegranate were actually made of grape juice and grape skins. And in 2014, Pom Wonderful successfully sued Coca-Cola for false advertising after its Minute Maid Pomegranate Blueberry blend turned out to be made almost entirely from apple and grape juice, with only 0.1 percent pomegranate juice. The Need-to-Know: Since there is some science that points to pomegranate's superfood qualities, you don't have to give it up entirely. Just take this as another reminder to read labels (fun as that is, we know) to be sure your drink is 100 percent pomegranate. Or learn the best way to deseed a pomegranate and reap all the health benefits in your own kitchen. 6. Breakfast Syrup Whipping up a batch of waffles (or even better, protein pancakes) this weekend? You may want to think twice before adding your toppings. Most breakfast syrups found at the grocery store are nothing like traditional maple syrup, which can be a healthy choice. Instead of the real stuff from maple trees, lots of commercial versions are made of two types of corn syrup along with a ton of artificial additives and zero nutritious value (sorry, Aunt Jemima). The Need-to-Know: Try to avoid the colored corn syrup and go for a bottle that lists 100 percent pure maple syrup as its one and only ingredient. Not only is it a sweeter way to top your flapjacks, but it also contains nutrients like zinc, which helps support your immune system, Roussell says. 7. Bacon Bits From popcorn to soap and even deodorant, bacon continues to be all the rage. But fans of the fatty pork product won’t be too pleased to know that those “bacon bits” are technically vegan! Lacking any animal products, these crispy bites are made of artificially flavored textured soy flour and other ingredients including caramel color, maltodextrin, yeast extract, and flavor enhancers called disodium inosinate and disodium guanylate. The Need-to-Know: Whether you eat meat or not, you want to skip this fake food. If you want bacon on your potato, simply chop up a slice of the real thing and sprinkle it on—one tablespoon of bacon isn't going to hurt you, Roussell says. Or try some of these delicious ways to top your spuds with actual food instead. 8. Veggie Burgers A vegetable-based patty certainly sounds like the better-for-you option over a juicy, medium-rare burger. The problem is that veggies masquerading as meats are usually made of few, if any, actual vegetables! Instead they’re often filled with over-processed ingredients, including wheat gluten, soy, and vegetable oil. A reportalso found that some patties contain hexane, a potentially toxic by-product of gasoline refining. (What?!) As if that’s not enough, some veggie burgers are packed with sodium (as much as 400-plus milligrams—more sodium than a single-serving bag of potato chips—per patty). The Need-to-Know: Make your own tasty version at home. Or opt for gluten-free, soy-free versions like the ones from Amy's or Beyond Meat. 9. Popcorn “Butter” You know that liquid that squirts out of a canister at the theater? No spoiler alert here: It is (dangerously) far from the real, grass-fed deal. This “buttery topping” (as it’s called on manufacturers’ websites) is typically made mainly from hydrogenated soybean oil (a trans fat), artificial flavoring, beta carotene for color, and preservatives. One tablespoon of the topping delivers nine grams of saturated fat—half a day’s limit—plus half a gram of naturally occurring trans fat, the really bad stuff that lowers “good” HDL cholesterol and raises “bad” LDL cholesterol . Even more: One common flavoring agent is diacetyl, a toxic substance that has been associated with lung disease. The Need-to-Know: You’re much better off popping and flavoring your own corn at home (try one of these 30 delicious and healthy variations). You didn't hear it from us, but if you pack your homemade snack inside a shoebox, no one will suspect anything (except that you scored a new pair of kicks before coming to the theater).

But Donald Trump’s Notre-Dame tweet fell flat.

All means are being used, except for water-bombing aircrafts which, if used, could lead to the collapse of the entire structure of the cathedral. — Sécurité Civile Fr (@SecCivileFrance) April 15, 2019 Wayne McPartland, a retired New York City Fire Department battalion chief, told CNBCthat aerial tankers are not the answer at Notre Dame. “If you hit that with tons of water from above, that’s going to collapse the entire structure and make the situation worse,” McPartland said. “If you miss, you might hit civilians in the street.” Little Man Child President A little man child Is our great and glorious dear leader Filled with hatred and jealousy Fear of failure haunts his every step The little man child Covers up his failures With bluster, bravado And constant attack The little man child Always attacking his enemies Plotting revenge all the time Consumed with slights and insults The little man child Lost millions of dollars The little man child Lost the popular vote The little man child Has lost the respect of the world And 60 percent of Americans Want to see him gone The little man child Has infected the body politic With his insidious poison A slowly growing cancer The little man child Will end up destroying The country Before he is through The little man child Can’t leave office For fear of going to prison So we are stuck with him The little man child Will never leave us Until he is resting In peace in hell Licenses Bankers have a license to steal money from their clients if you make a mistake the bank can steal your money as part of their banking license Governments have a license to steal money from the public its is called taxation or confiscation It seems that police these days have a license to kill unarmed brown people but only brown people and the president has a license to lie as he lies all the time just because he can and I have the ultimate license the poetic license to write these verses to enlighten the masses April 21 it is darker than you think It is darker than you think an old hag an old witch strictly old school is talking to young people She tells them that it is darker than they think the end times approach She proclaims she sees the world ending and is warning them of what is to come She is following the dark master of the universe waiting for the end and she is afraid she sees the world the end of things the end of life She is afraid she tells her students to boldly face the coming end with fear and trepidation and anxiety waiting for the end and in the end of the world they will be born again as things circle back to the beginning of the end and the end of the beginning thus it has always played out in the world endless nightmares and in the end, she will wake up and embrace her fate at the end of time April 22, 2019 Spring Time Sketch in Youngchando, Korea In the early morning dawn I like to go for a walk Down among the cherry trees And flowering plants Just to welcome Another fine spring day As the sun comes up Dispelling my dismal mood And filling me With love Hope and peace As I walk the path Of the world peace forest Near my island home Near the chaos of the airport Through the forest and over the mountain breathing the spring time air alive filled with life and I think to myself this moment is the moment that I am meant to experience life itself and nothing more nothing less Just breath in life
