The stakes have never been higher in American politics during its two-hundred-forty-four-year history. As a member of the New Age movement, one blessed to share the events stage with greats like Greg Braden, Joe Dispenza and Nassim Haramein, and who has had the honor to film conscious greats like Deepak Chopra, Don Miguel Ruiz and the incomparable Patrick Flanagan, I believe the Biden-Harris ticket best represents our spiritual community’s true core values of peace and love. Now, in this confusing time of an onslaught of lies by the Russian-backed GOP and Trump’s 80-million-fan-bully-pulpit of Twitter, if you’re still with me, I’d like to share my analysis of how I came to my endorsement of former Vice President Joe Biden and his brilliant running mate, Senator Kamala Harris.
Tooting my own horn, my qualifications of covering both politics and the New Age world are as unique as they are profound. Fans of my work know that I’ve been covering politics during election cycles since 1996, for my shows AKVUS (A Kid’s View of the US), aired as the lead in national prime time on PBS in 2000, and on YouTube for KTP (Kids Talk Politics) since 2008, to the tune of over 15 million viewers combined. Here’s a link to my IMDB credentials.
To form my opinions and keep them as balanced and up to date as possible, I watch CSPAN, FOX, BREITBART, CNN, and MSNBC and keep tabs on Twitter. I’ve subjected myself to Mikki Willis’ PLANDEMIC and found its pseudo-science predictable and dangerously misleading. About 3 months into the pandemic, I instructed my New Age friends to stop sharing anti-mask videos and sheeple memes. The science I’ve researched has closed that door. Masks greatly reduce the spread of virus. Mask wearing shows love for our fellow citizens. I also read, yes some of us still like to read, The NY Times, Breitbart (when I can stomach it), Washington Post, WSJ and Politico to be up on the facts.
Bottom line, in all of my 24 years of political coverage and a decade plus of conscious film work–work that’s taken me all the way to Antarctica to meditate for positive change in the world in 2012 (link to my meditation film on Vimeo)–I’ve never seen a fight for the light like we are in right now. The very souls and lives the American people and the New Age community in particular are on the ballot. So buckle up and read on.
Based on my analysis of a flotilla of Russian-assisted disinformation swirling like a cesspool on the web, I see these are the qualities, or rather lack of qualities, that Trump/Pence and the GOP stand for:
- White privilege
- Male privilege
- Christian privilege
- Wealth privilege
- Restricting women’s rights
- Unchecked Gun Control
- A return to segregation
- Strangling the right to vote for people of color
- Ignoring science on everything from controlling the virus to climate change
- Secret police
- A dangerous rush to present a vaccine before the elections without proper trials
- Lack of genuine respect for veterans and the military
- Disabling the US Post Office in the midst of a pandemic
- Seeking foreign assistance from Russia and other countries
- Unbridled greed in an unbridled kleptocracy
- Police brutality to people of color
- Blackmailing domestic and foreign leaders with taxpayer money
- Lying to the American people about anything unfavorable to their cause
- Unbridled gaslighting
- Subjecting the people to extremist conspiracy theories
- Repeated violations of the Hatch Act and many other lies
- Reverting to the Salem Witch Trial ethics by demonizing the opposition as child eaters, Satanic worshipers, and pedophiles
- Embracing the radical right, Russian-propagated QAnon movement as a legitimate arm of the GOP
- Using over 150 million dollars in taxpayer money to pay for golf trips for Trump
- De-funding of Social Security and Medicare
- Free reign for social media to gather dissenters calling for violence in a Civil War
- Coddling murdering dictators
- Destruction of the NATO alliance that has preserved the peace since WW2
- Seven convicted felons on his campaign team
- Selected a cabinet that’s all about destroying their own departments
- Care only for the economic optics of the DOW and NASDAQ and not real people’s economic pain
- Selects unqualified judges who are racist
- Angry, arrogant tone in general, that seeks to create stress, chaos and confusion for our citizens every day
- Capital cronyism
- Allowing Russian brainwashing and troll farms to be unleashed on the American people
- Again, disrespect for our military and vets
- Illegal actions and mafia mob boss-like behavior
- Total lack of respect for norm and laws
- Elimination of pre-existing medical conditions protections
- Contempt for the Democratic Congress and the Americans of any state where the electoral college votes went Democratic
- Using the DOJ and other key offices for political purposes
- Prejudice against LGBTQ
- Childishly dividing our country into blue and red states
- Taking no responsibility for any actions or lack thereof
- Playing the blame game instead of taking productive actoins
- All of this in the middle of an out of control pandemic and much more known and, worse, unknown terrible corruption
Based on the much more hopeful and together tone of the Biden campaign and the DEMs, playing it clean but with the gloves finally off, Biden/Harris stand for:
- Striving for equality for all races, creeds, women and LGBTQ
- Seeking strength in diversity
- A deep desire to reunite our divided people to stave off civil war and cvil disobedience
- High ethical standards
- Green job growth
- Love, kindness and compassion for all Americans, red or blue
- Favoritism based only merit and serving the American people
- Restoration of checks and balances
- Honoring of our vets and military
- Clean fighting
- Demilitarizing our police and rooting out racists
- A halt to foreign interference in our elections from national to local
- A national plan to get the corona virus under control with as low a death toll as possible
- A proven track record in Joe for rescuing the economy in crisis
- All inclusive tone of joy
- Respect for science
- Respect for the handicapped
- Respect for the constitution
- Respect for the rule of law
- Respect for NATO and the United Nations
- Respect for telling the truth even when it hurts
- Restoration of voting rights
- Support for big AND small business
- Protection of Social Security and Medicare
- Restoration of our Post Office
- Will select an all-star cabinet of ethical people dedicated to supporting the departments
- Greater health insurance for more Americans
- Across the isle cooperation getting enlightened legislation passed
- Zero tolerance for Russian brainwashing and trolling the American people on social media
- Joe is an amazing connector
- Joe is loved and respected by our allies and will quickly heal the wounds Trump has caused
- Kamala is a former attorney general and will get busy prosecuting and cleaning up the corruption of the Trump administration and family.
- And much more wonderful stuff that gives them the right to claim the powers of the light as they are doing in their campaigning.
After reading my candidate overview of the deep contrast of evil versus good each represents, you might think that the choice of Biden over Trump is a simple one for a spirit community founded on the healing arts and driven by philosophies of love and light. But sadly you’d be just as wrong to think evangelicals should not be getting ready to, once again, vote for a man who cheated on his then pregnant wife Melania with porn stars and then bribed them to be silent.
But before you come down too hard on New Agers, or any Trump supporter for that matter, please watch THE GREAT HACK on Netflix. It will open your eyes to how our New Age community’s open-minded flock, who look like a lot like the “persuadables” in the film, were easily brainwashed to act against their own best interests. Kind of like the brainwashed Trumpist who proudly posted pictures after he slashed his own Goodyear tires when Trump demanded a boycott of Goodyear after they banned MAGA hats.
In the intentionally-insulated-from-mainstream-media-New Age community our brain hack, done by trusted friends via Facebook, is exemplified by so many ignoring Trump’s world-destroying positions on climate change, racism, misogyny and mishandling the Corona virus for various un-grounded and unfounded reasons.
It makes it easier to have sympathy for New Agers for Trump, just as do my wife and biz partner Elizabeth, a 17-year veteran, when one realizes that the conscious community adores the same magical thinking Trump is ‘bigly’ into. As well, our community is bright and knows we’ve been, and are still, lied to repeatedly by our government and mainstream media. This constant web of lies has made these healers, many of them escapees from conventional Christianity but who nonetheless, still cling to its core values on abortion, especially vulnerable to QAnon’s pack of lies.
Bottom line, neither I, nor my love Elizabeth, will ever give up on the New Age community and we hope you won’t either. It’s a community that, once it heals and reforms–and it will when Trump is stopped–has lots more to offer to the world in the fields of alternative medicine, Reiki healing, meditation, sound healing, metaphysics, and more. Our empathy and sympathy for our lost, cyber-attacked brothers and sisters has its foundation in Elizabeth’s military training and experience, with years of that as a Russian linguist in special operations thwarting foreign attacks on our country. But never had we the handicap of a leader like Trump working with the Russians. The current propaganda attacks were designed to confuse, divide and conquer our people and nation, targeting the open-minded conscious community on Facebook in particular.
QAnon is escalating it’s hatred and seeking to foment a race war. Our community must turn away from that or it may not survive the Trump presidency. We are a bright bunch and without us a civil war cannot succeed. Wake up. Reach out and share this message with all you love.
In closing, my opinions on Trump as the worst president ever for America date all the way back in 1987. In those heady, egoistic days, I was building a skyscraper and Oprah’s Harpo Studios in Chicago. And I first began observing Trump as a distant competitor who had not yet invaded the Chicago real estate market. I can easily recall how horrified I was by his unethical real estate practices penned in his book THE ART OF THE DEAL.
Now, after decades of Trump observation I am sounding the warning that the freedoms we love in the New Age community — everything from channeling spirits, to Reiki healing to tarot card to talking to crystals, respect for power of women and the goddess, respect for all races, creeds and more — will all perish in a Trump second term.
Some basics. Please check if you are registered to vote. And only vote once, despite Trump’s insane play to destroy the election’s credibility. Vote either by mail or in person, and, as always, please show love for your fellow Americans by wearing a mask and distancing when you vote, hopefully for Joe and the first African-American woman ever to be nominated for Vice president, Senator Kamala Harris.
Now, enjoy some peaceful meditation music. For I believe meditation has been a big part of how my wife and I keep free from of the Russian/Trump Psyop. See your mind protected, free and soaring above all the politics, waiting to swoop in ready to hopefully vote Biden when time is at last here.
Stay cool and thanks for all your support of our work at CoolestTechEver.com, which offers you the best healing tools the New Age community has to offer. My wife and I love introducing these genius products of the conscious community to the mainstream.
