A New Scientific Documentary Exposing Our Non-Physical World: Matter Is Not The Only Reality
Arjun Walia
January 17, 2018
“Despite the unrivaled empirical success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger.”(T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum”; Discover 22:37-43, 2001)
The quote above is a great example that lets the reader know one thing; that new information and evidence which challenge long held beliefs about our world are always met with harsh criticism. Remember when we found out that the Earth wasn’t flat?  (what?) Human history shows the same pattern, especially if we look at the history of science.
Take, for example, prominent physicist Lord Kelvin, who stated in the year 1900 that, “There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.”
It wasn’t long after this statement when Einstein published his paper on special relativity. Einstein’s theories challenged the accepted framework of knowledge at the time, and forced the scientific community to open up to an alternate view of reality.
It serves as a great example of how concepts that are taken to be absolute truth are susceptible to change.
Today, something special in science is happening. It’s the recognition that what we perceive to be our physical material world is not the only world, and non-material factors like consciousness, for example, may play a vital role in the make-up of our physical material world.
In the scientific community, it’s referred to as non-material science.
Other areas of study in this field include telepathy, clairvoyance, ESP, and more. These are topics that have been studied within black budget and at the highest levels of government for decades, yet at the same time ridiculed by mainstream science, despite extremely significant statistical results.
This area is usually referred to as “psi” phenomena, or parapsychological phenomenon.
It’s interesting because as far back as 1999, statistics professor Jessica Utts at UC Irvine, published a paper
 showing that parapsychological experiments have produced much stronger results than those showing a daily dose of aspirin helping to prevent heart attacks. Utts also showed that these results are much stronger than the research behind various drugs like antiplatelets, for example.
This is precisely why Nikola Tesla told the world that,
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence”
Hundreds of scientists are gathering to emphasize this, and are not really getting the attention they deserve. All of our academia and real-world applications come from material science. This is great, but it’s time to take the next leap. How can we continue to ignore facts and results simply because they defy the belief systems of so many people?
A group of internationally recognized scientists have come together to stress the fact that matter (protons, electrons, photons, anything that has a mass) is not the only reality. We wish to understand the nature of our reality, but how can we do so if we are continually examining only physical systems? What about the role of non-physical systems such as consciousness, or their interaction with physical systems (matter)?
Here is a list of points were co-authored by: Dr. Gary Schwartz, professor of psychology, medicine, neurology, psychiatry, and surgery at the University of Arizona, Mario Beauregard, PhD, from the University of Arizona, and Lisa Miller, PhD, from Columbia University. It was presented at an international summit on post-materialist science, spirituality, and society.

Expanding Reality, A Ground Breaking Trilogy Film Series
You can purchase the film here.
“Expanding Reality is about the emerging postmaterialist paradigm and the next great scientific revolution. Why is it important? Because this paradigm has far-reaching implications. For instance, it re-enchants the world and profoundly alters the vision we have of ourselves, giving us back our dignity and power as human beings. The postmaterialist paradigm also fosters positive values such as compassion, respect, care, love, and peace, because it makes us realize that the boundaries between self and others are permeable. In doing so, this paradigm promotes an awareness of the deep interconnection between ourselves and Nature at large. In that sense, the model of reality associated with the postmaterialist paradigm may help humanity to create a sustainable civilization and to blossom.” – Mario Beauregard, PhD, from the University of Arizona

You are a non-physical being and chose to have this temporary human experience. Only a small part of your consciousness is focused in this physical experience, with the greater part of You always remaining in non-physical.
When your physical body dies the part of You that has been focused here will re-merge with your Higher Self in non-physical.
The physical brain acts as an interface connecting your non-physical Self to the physical body, in much the same way that a radio translates non-physical radio waves into the sound we can perceive with our physical sense of hearing.

Scientists Prove That Telepathic Communication Is Within Reach
An international research team develops a way to say “hello” with your mind
smithsonian.com
October 2, 2014
Researchers have made an important first step towards engineering direct, brain-to-brain communication between humans. (PASIEKA/Science Photo Library/Corbis)
In a recent experiment, a person in India said “hola” and “ciao” to three other people in France. Today, the Web, smartphones and international calling might make that not seem like an impressive feat, but it was. The greetings were not spoken, typed or texted. The communication in question happened between the brains of a set of study subjects, marking one of the first instances of brain-to-brain communication on record.
The team, whose members come from Barcelona-based research institute Starlab, French firm Axilum Robotics and Harvard Medical School, published its findings earlier this month in the journal PLOS One. Study co-author Alvaro Pascual-Leone, director of the Berenson-Allen Center for Noninvasive Brain Stimulation at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center and a neurology professor at Harvard Medical School, hopes this and forthcoming research in the field will one day provide a new communication pathway for patients who might not be able to speak.
“We want to improve the ways people can communicate in the face of limitations—those who might not be able to speak or have sensory impairments,” he says. “Can we work around those limitations and communicate with another person or a computer?”
Pascual-Leone’s experiment was successful—the correspondents neither spoke, nor typed, nor even looked at one another. But he freely concedes that the test was more a proof of concept than anything else, and the technique still has a long way to go. “It’s still very, very early,” he says, “[but] we can show that this is even possible with technology that’s available. It’s the difference between talking on the phone and sending Morse code. To get where we’re going, you need certain steps to be taken first.”
Indeed, the process was drawn out, if not downright inelegant. First, the team had to establish binary-code equivalents of letters; for example “h” is “0-0-1-1-1.” Then, with EEG (electroencephalography) sensors attached to the scalp, the sender moved either his hands or feet to indicate a 1 or a 0. The code then passed to the recipient over email. On the other end, the receiver was blindfolded with a 
transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) system on his head. (TMS is a non-invasive method of stimulating neurons in the brain; it’s most commonly 
used to treat depression.) The TMS headset stimulated the recipient’s brain, causing him to see quick flashes of light. A flash was equivalent to a “1” and a blank was a “0.” From there, the code was translated back into text. It took about 70 minutes to relay the message.
How Brain-to-Brain Communication Works
(Grau, C., et al. PLOS ONE 2014)
There is a bit of contention about the degree to which this approach was actually novel. IEEE Spectrum 
reports that this recent study is quite similar to one conducted at the University of Washington last year. In that study, researchers used the same EEG-to-TMS setup, but rather than pulsed light, stimulated the brain’s motor cortex to subconsciously cause the recipient to strike a key on a keyboard. Pascual-Leone contends, however, that his work is notable because the recipient was conscious of the communication.
Both studies represent only a small step toward engineering telepathy, which might take years—or decades—to perfect. Ultimately, the goal is to remove the computer middleman from the transmission equation and allow direct brain-to-brain communication between people. “We’re still a long way from that,” Pascual-Leone admits, “but in the end, I think it’s a pursuit worthy of the effort.”
Outside of medicine, brain-to-brain communication could find applications across many disciplines. Soldiers, for instance, could use the technology on the battlefield, sending commands and warnings to one another. Civilians might benefit, as well; businesspeople could use it to send cues to partners during negotiations, or pitchers and catchers could avoid sign-stealing during baseball games.
Still, telepathic communication that works like a sort of futuristic walkie-talkie will involve major advances in sensing, emitting and receiving technologies—and perhaps even a slight retraining of the human brain. At the same time, Pascual-Leone cautions that scientists must also keep in mind the ethics of telepathy.
“Could there be potential for sending someone a thought that’s not desirable to them?” he says. “Those kinds of things are theoretically in the realm of possibility.”

Real Story Behind The S***Hole Comment
Jan 15, 2018   
President Donald J. Trump articulates the most colorful comments heard by any leader since Teddy Roosevelt—one of the most popular presidents in U.S. history.
Trump blurts out what everyone mutters in the bar-rooms, pool halls, card games, living rooms, diners, restaurants, recreation centers, car pools and conferences.  He articulates what average Americans grumble daily.
Last week, he hit the big time when one of most anti-American U.S. Senators, Dick Durbin (D-IL), a man representing the most lawless city in America, Chicago—snuck out of a meeting to paraphrase the president with his own interpretation of failed third world countries.  Durbin created the “S***hole” rendition of that meeting.
That comment gave the mainstream press a field day for their moral and righteous indignation.  Jake Tapper, Shepard Smith, Anderson Cooper, Jonathan Karl, et al.  Surely, House reps Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson, John Lewis and other “esteemed” members of the Black Caucus—puckered up their lips—with their own versions of Trump’s vernacular.
Exactly what do you call countries like Haiti, Honduras, El Salvador, Congo, Pakistan, Sudan, Ethiopia, Zimbabwe, Somalia and the like—destination resorts for Carnival Cruise ships?  Your favorite retirement countries of choice?  The wings of humanity’s highest and best aspirations?  Paragons of happiness and human triumph?
Let’s get real: they represent s***holes, and everyone tries to escape them, but the reason they remain horrible places stems from the fact that the people who created them, won’t change them, and recreate them in the countries they invade.  Look at the streets of Minneapolis, Los Angeles, Chicago, New York, Miami and other places where those people migrate.  Look at downtown Paris, France or Montreal, Canada—where immigrants trash the places as if every street corner equated to their own garbage cans.   Has anyone seen the outskirts of Mexico City?   I saw at least 1-3 million people living in cardboard shacks, with tires holding down roof tarps, and everyone does their daily constitutional with the chickens.  No toilets, no running water, no decency.  Yet the Mexican government won’t do anything to put in toilets or porta potties or some kind of sanitation system.  The Mexican elite won’t do anything to improve their own country or the citizens of Mexico.  They live on the edge of disaster because of their choices.
At the same time, many presidents said much worse, much nastier, much more racist comments, and more to the point.
A brief history of presidential profanity…please calm yourselves, everyone!
Abraham Lincoln: “There is nothing to make an Englishman sh*t quicker than the sight of General George Washington.”
Barack Obama (speaking in the 3rd person): “Obama really drew the ire of the pious, calling opponent Mitt Romney a ‘bullsh*tter.’ Sometimes the dirty word is the most precise.”
Joe Biden: “This is a big f**king deal.”
Dick Cheney: “Cheney reportedly told Vermont Senator Patrick Leahy to ‘go f**k [himself].’”
George W. Bush: “Commented on the presence of New York Times reporter Adam Clymer. Believing he had an audience of one, Bush called Clymer a ‘major-league asshole.’”
Barack Obama: “I don’t think I should take any sh*t from anybody on that, do you?”
Richard Nixon: “The Watergate tapes put the phrase ‘expletive deleted’ on the map.”
Lyndon Johnson: “I do know the difference between chicken sh*t and chicken salad.”  LBJ also said that when he passed the voter rights acts, “Those ni**ers will be voting for democrats for the next 50 years.”
John F. Kennedy: “This is obviously a f**k-up.”
Harry Truman: “In Truman’s eyes, General Douglas MacArthur was a “dumb son of a bitch,” and Nixon was ‘a shifty-eyed goddamned liar.’”
Source: CNS News
Colorful language from Trump?  You bet!  He says it like most Americans in those coffee shops tell it: like it is!
The fact remains: our elected leaders like U.S. Senators Dick Durbin, House rep Nancy Pelosi, Barbara Boxer, Michael Bennet, Charles Schumer, Jeff Flake, John McCain and the majority of the House and Senate members keep screwing the American people by NOT protecting our borders, by NOT stopping 350,000 illegal anchor baby births annually, by not stopping chain migration and diversity visas, by importing Moslem terrorists, by not passing E-Verify, not stopping mass immigration from s***hole countries, and worse.
But they do maintain endless and useless wars like Iraq, Afghanistan, and Vietnam (go see the latest movie “The Post” where Daniel Ellsberg exposed the Vietnam War for what it was: a money maker for the elite and killing field for all of our kids), finance with our money 450,000 military personnel on 700 bases in 80 countries around the world—for NO purpose whatsoever ever other than “empire” that none of us asked for or want.  They keep importing refugees that cannot function in our society and leech our welfare dollars meant for our citizens, i.e., Somalians, Sudanese, Congolese, Mexicans, Haiti, Pakistanis, Ethiopians, and the like.  They refuse to bring jobs to our inner-city ghettos and they keep compounding our $20 trillion debt, while they vote raises for themselves for doing such poor jobs.
To tell the truth, the biggest s***hole in America, you guessed it, the 535 members of Congress that remain on course to turn our country into another Haiti or El Salvador or MS 13 stronghold, or Moslem caliphate if we don’t force term limits and eject those people out of the halls of Congress.

Democrat Double Standard
Jan 14, 2018   
This last week America witnessed, in my opinion, one of the most disgusting displays of outright lies from the Democrat Party that I think I’ve ever seen.  In a meeting where the nation of Haiti was discussed, and it was purported, only by Democrats, that President Trump referred to the nation as a ‘s***hole’.  This claim was made by Senator Dick Durbin, which almost guarantees that Trump didn’t use the term.  President Trump denies saying it and that’s good enough for me.  All we have to do is listen to what has been coming from the left since Trump was elected and it becomes obvious that this is nothing but another pathetic attempt by the Democrats to discredit Trump.  The idiot from Texas, Representative Al Green is going to call for impeachment, again, because of the alleged statement.
What is hard to understand in all of this is why is there not the same amount of outrage over certain comments made by members of the Democrat Party?  We have this fool from Illinois, Representative Louis Gutierrez, who encouraged businesses to ignore our immigration laws: Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-IL), who suggested on Monday that “every institution” in America should ignore the nation’s immigration laws until Congress passes amnesty legislation, said President George W. Bush will go down as the last Republican president in history if Congress does not act on immigration.
“I give you George W. Bush–the man who will go down in history as the last Republican president in American history,” Gutierrez said Tuesday on the House Floor.
He added:
If you do nothing on immigration, I guess you can take comfort in knowing that from Abraham Lincoln to George W. Bush, you had a pretty good run. Freeing the slaves, winning the Civil War, the interstate highway system–those all go in the highlight column.
Suggesting that he was offering Republicans helpful advice, Gutierrez said that if Republicans in the House do not act on amnesty legislation, the only thing children in the future will know about Republicans as “a national party will be what they read in the history blogs.”[1] Here we have a member of Congress, sworn to uphold the Constitution of the United States, telling businesses to violate that very Constitution.  The left never even blinked.  This so-called representative of the people of Illinois has been arrested at least twice protesting AGAINST our constitutional immigration laws defending the illegals that have broken our immigration laws!  One has to ask why is this lowlife still in Congress?
Representative Al Green, who wants to impeach Trump for allegedly making the statement, has been accused of sexual harassment by a former staffer: With the wave of sexual assault and sexual harassment allegations rocking Capitol Hill in recent weeks, some notable figures are trying to get ahead of the curve.
One notable Democrat really wants everyone to know that he and Lucinda Daniels, a former staffer who once accused him of sexual assault, are just friends.
Democrat Rep. Al Green of Texas and Daniels released a bizarre joint statement on Monday explaining that they are “consenting friends,” leading many to question the timing of the statement.[2] Where are the calls for him to resign?  Oh, I forgot, he’s a Democrat and that is allowed, with impunity.
Back in the day when Senator Harry Reid was majority leader he referred to President Bush as Hitler and there was even a D.C. school assignment relating to Bush being compared to Hitler, there was no uproar over that comparison:  A Washington, D.C., public school, apparently in an effort to shape students like the majority of residents in the District of Columbia, recently assigned sixth-graders a homework assignment that required students to compare former President George W. Bush and Adolf Hitler.
The assignment, given out at McKinley Tech Middle School, asked them to draw examples from two assigned reading texts and fill in a Venn diagram with similarities and differences between the two. “Now that we have read about two men of power who abused their power in various ways, we will compare and contrast them and their actions. Please refer to your texts, ‘Fighting Hitler — A Holocaust Story’ and ‘Bush: Iraq War Justified Despite No WMD’ to compare and contrast former President George W. Bush and Hitler,” the assignment read.
An unnamed outraged parent called the school office to complain and was told the assignment was part of an approved curriculum unit. However, a spokeswoman for the D.C. Public Schools said while the readings had been suggested, the texts were not meant to be compared in the manner assigned. “The teacher deeply regrets this mistake, and any suggestion to malign the presidency or make any comparison in this egregious way,” she said, adding that the school would send home letters informing parents and that the teacher, who admitted she showed “extremely poor judgment,” would apologize to students.[3]
Reid even called President Bush a loser to a group of high school students during a civics discussion: Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid called President Bush “a loser” during a civics discussion with a group of high-school students yesterday.
“The man’s father is a wonderful human being,” Reid, D-Nev., told students at Del Sol High School when asked about the president’s policies. “I think this guy is a loser.”
Reid called the White House to apologize shortly after the event, his spokeswoman Tessa Hafen said. Reid spoke with Bush adviser Karl Rove, asking him to convey the apology to Bush, who was traveling in Europe.
Reid expressed “regret for the comments, that it was inappropriate,” Hafen said. The senator was giving a late speech in Salt Lake City and was unavailable for comment, she said.
Reid visited the school to discuss Congress and the debate over judicial filibusters. He repeated that Democrats will use various tactics to bring the Senate to a standstill if Republicans change the rules regarding filibusters to hasten the approval of Bush’s judicial nominees.[4]
Then there was the time when Harry Reid was accused of running the Senate like a ‘plantation’ by Representative Bill Cassidy, R-LA and Reid demanded an apology changing the subject when reminded that Hillary Clinton made the same statement concerning the way Republicans ran the Senate: Good ol’ Harry Reid. He just can’t help himself.
Confronted with his hypocrisy over saying he deserved an apology when U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy, R-La., recently said he ran the Senate like a “plantation” but dismissing Hillary Clinton’s nearly identical statement about Republicans running the Senate “like a plantation — and you know what I’m talking about” in 2006, the Senate majority leader simply changed the subject.
“I didn’t listen to [Clinton’s] speech,” said Reid, who was then the Senate minority leader, according to the New York Post, “but no one can question her civil- and human-rights credentials. They’re the best.”[5]
Ever since Trump won the election the left has been in full meltdown mode.  They have looked at anything they can to bring him down. Maxine Waters has been calling for his impeachment even before he was sworn in and then she denied it. On Tuesday, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) told MSNBC’s Craig Melvin that she has never called for President Donald Trump’s impeachment, despite having done just that – on live television and in writing – on too many occasions to count.
Waters’ bogus claim came just hours after she tweeted she would fight every day until Trump is impeached. A few days prior to that, the California congresswoman led a crowd in a chant of “Impeach 45!” at the Washington Tax Day march Saturday.[6]
I just hope that the American people open their eyes and see what the real objective of the Democrat Party is.  Trump is for upholding the Constitution, our immigration laws, Americans first and the Democrats are against everything Trump is for.  Let that sink in.

Trump and his sh*thole remark: the story nobody is talking about
(Assuming Trump made the remark as reported—he denies it)
by Jon Rappoport
January 13, 2018
You’re not a terrorist.
You aren’t trying to emigrate.
You aren’t a refugee who refuses to assimilate, who feels entitled to abuse his wife in any way he wants to, for any reason.
You’re not a member of the vicious MS-13 gang.
You’re not involved in child sex trafficking.
You’re not making anchor babies.
You’re not a pirate, a kidnapper, a street thug, or a drug dealer.
You’re one of the millions and millions of people who simply live out their lives where they are. You represent a FAR larger population than all the above categories put together.
You and your family call home a tiny shack in a large crowded city in an African country. Your family has existed in the throes of poverty and extreme hunger for many generations.
You drink water that is pumped directly from untreated sewage.
Garbage is strewn in the streets.
Riots and wars erupt from time to time, and so do epidemics, because no one in your neighborhood has a healthy body that can fight off germs.
All around the city there is fertile growing land, but most of it has been taken over by transnational agri-corporations.
I can predict with certainty that the last thing you care about is whether the president of the US has called your country a shithole.
You’re not circulating a petition protesting his remark and sending it to the United Nations.
You’re not watching outraged commentators on CNN excoriating the president.
You’re not reading tweets from liberals who are triggered by Trump.
You’re not watching YouTube videos made by college students in Boston.
You’re wondering whether your sick daughter is going to survive the night.
You do care about medical teams that sweep through the neighborhood and vaccinate everyone, because you’ve seen adults and children die after the shots.
You aren’t comparing the talking heads on FOX with the talking heads on MSNBC, to see who is parsing what.
You aren’t poring over the Washington Post.
You do know that the dictator of your country (the latest in a long line of psychopaths) has sold everything that isn’t nailed down, to foreign predatory corporations. You’re told that, half a century ago, there was a local leader who might not have been a psychopath; and the CIA killed him.
You do know that you and your people have been targets of exploitation for more than a hundred years.
If you were somehow made aware of Trump’s remark, you might wonder why no one is actually doing something to change the circumstances of life in your country. That’s the only question for you. And you don’t see any help coming.
You also know that chemicals from a mining company and a sugar company nearby have been seeping into the soil and making people sick and killing them. Why doesn’t someone stop that?
You aren’t analyzing what the Democrats and the Republicans are saying about a pending US immigration bill.
Every time doctors from foreign countries show up and label the latest round of illness and death with a disease name, you know they’re lying, because you can see, inside your shack, and out in the street, all the conditions that are destroying people.
If there is a word in your language that approximates “shithole,” you’ve used it yourself a thousand times to describe your country. You’ve used similar words to describe the president of your country.
So-called political correctness is not on your personal radar.
You don’t care who is sitting in the White House today or who sat in it yesterday. Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton; it doesn’t matter. None of them have done anything to help raise up your people.
If someone told you about the uproar in the press and the capital city of the US, concerning Trump’ latest remark, you would see all that as just another way to distract people from the fact that YOUR people are sick and dying.
Who is talking about you?
They’re talking to each other. They’re talking to each about what the president of the US has been talking about.
They’re pushing back from the table after a meal in a room that has heat and insulation, and someone is taking a piece of plastic out of his pocket to pay for the meal, and they’re wearing new clothes, and they’re looking at their cell phones.
You know your country is a shithole. The point is: who made it that way? Who took a fertile paradise and turned it into a sewer?
You know Bill Gates and the UN and the World Health Organization aren’t going to fix it. You know the head of Monsanto isn’t going to fix it. He might drench your country in more toxic pesticides, but that’s about it. His fake food is growing everywhere, but you aren’t eating much of it, and even if you could, it’s not going to bring you back to health. Facebook and Google aren’t going to fix your country.
You know how to fix your country.
Get back all the stolen land. Make small farms out of it. Return the land to the people who worked it and lived on it for centuries.
That was the answer then and it’s the answer now.
Does the US government care about that? Does the Russian or the Chinese government?
Do the shitholes called Washington and Moscow and Beijing care?
Do the snowflake liberal student shitholes care? Do the fat-cat cheating lying crony corporate shitholes care? Do the shithole banks?
You may not know the word “Globalism,” but you do know you’re a pawn and a target in a big operation, and the operation involves stealing everything your family once had. The big criminals may have fancy ideas about why it’s a good thing “for the world,” but you don’t know about that, and you wouldn’t care if you did.
You just want to drink a glass of clean water for once in your life.
You want the piece of land your great-great-grandfather used to own, you want to get out of the city and breathe real air again.
You want soil that isn’t filled with poison from factories and mines and big company farms.
There isn’t any mystery about it.
The idea that some big shot called your country a shithole? That would be a good thing…
If he did something about it.
But you aren’t in the equation.
You’re missing.
The people who are talking to each other about what the president said, when he was talking, aren’t looking at you. They don’t know you. They never will.
You don’t have time to try to figure out what they’re doing and why—if you were watching the news. And you aren’t watching the news.
You’re not a terrorist.
You aren’t trying to emigrate.
You’re one of the millions and millions of people who will live out their lives where they are.
What a US president said is the least of your worries. The people who are worried aren’t worried about you.
You’re just trying to keep your sick daughter alive through the night.
You know there has to be revolution in your country. You also know most revolutions are phony, staged to put a new psychopath in the palace. For starters, can you find ten good people who are smart, courageous, honorable, and willing? Who will mount a plan to eventually go up against the dictator and the foreign colossus behind him?
The odds are very long. But what else is there to do?
Meanwhile, you’re hoping your daughter survives the night.
What people, thousands of miles away, are saying about what other people are saying is not on your mind.
If someone told you what the president of the United States said—and if you could, by some miracle, sit across from this president, you would say: “Sir, you called my country a shithole. It is really a beautiful place. It was. But you’re right. It’s turned into a shithole. Can you help us do something about that? Perhaps I see a glint of light, because finally a powerful leader used an accurate word to describe what has happened to us. You used a word that cut through many fairy tales. So, can you help us reclaim the land that was once ours? Forget about building roads and airports and hospitals and office buildings and malls. We just need our land back, and then we’ll figure out what we need to do ourselves.”
That would be a strange moment.
Perhaps an embarrassing moment.
—Regardless of whether Donald Trump, Barack Obama, George Bush, Bill Clinton, George Bush, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, Richard Nixon, Lyndon Johnson, John Kennedy, Dwight Eisenhower, Harry Truman, Franklin Roosevelt, or any of his predecessors were sitting across from you.
You’re not a terrorist.
You aren’t trying to emigrate.
You aren’t a refugee who refuses to assimilate, who feels entitled to abuse his wife in any way he wants to, for any reason.
You’re not a member of the vicious MS-13 gang.
You’re not involved in child sex trafficking.

You’re not a pirate, a kidnapper, a street thug, or a drug dealer.
You represent a FAR larger population than all the above categories put together.
You’re one of the millions and millions of people who simply live out their lives where they are.
You want your land back.
Nobody is listening to you.
If you and millions like you could get their land back, you would start farming it, and you would turn the shithole where you live into something better.
