Herschel Walker Another In a Long List of Symptoms of the American Media’s Deadly Sickness

November 29, 2022

What’s interesting, and also alarming re it’s implications, about this GA senate runoff race now happening down there this past year, is that nationally pretty much everyone has seen the name and face of Herschel Walker a ZILLION times, knows everything about the most minute details of his life and him i.e. what a corrupt duplicitous slippery scumbag weasel he seems to be, and yet I’d bet a good 90% of Americans on a national level couldn’t picture his democratic opponent Warnock’s face if asked to, let alone recount anything about him personally or his political platform.

Bigger picture, what it seems to imply is that the American media — long past researching or reporting “news” (those days are decades behind us (PBS NPR Reuters and AP excepting) — now focuses the majority of its resources on covering and promoting anything and everything that smells of “juicy bad gossip”, troublesome rumors, potential corruption, controversy, personal and familial problems, and anything potentially disturbing or offensive in any way.

Personally I had to look Warnock up to be reminded of what he even looks like. Whereas I’ve seen walkers face a hundred times this past year, 100% of the time because something disturbing, deceitful or unsavory was being promoted by one media source or another about the man.

We all know what this implies. It’s a much discussed topic in the United States, has been for years; and one of the most disturbing societal trends the American people face if we are ever going to evolve to a truly honorable human civilization.

Still plenty to explore there. More later.

Eisenhower’s Great Farewell Address of 1960 Still Possesses the Same Power It Did Sixty Years Ago

October 30, 2022

American President Eisenhower Warns of the Coming of a Great Threat from a Newly Forming Military Industrial Complex

More than 60 years later, Eisenhower’s Farewell Address still remains one of the most intellectually rich and substantively important speeches in America’s history.
Most do not form sentences like this anymore, in any field, especially not politics. Nor do we pack each clause with as much depth or information or moral aspirations. Though the intellect is a second class citizen now, pushed outside of modern society and discourse, this speech stands as a powerful reminder of the potential we once had and still may have again.
It also stands, with the historic hindsight we posses now, as the stark warning it was originally intended to be. Just 3 years later began a string of assassinations of America’s most advanced and progressive thinkers and leaders willing to question the very shadowy powers that cut short the lives of these individuals over the next 10 years.
From JFK, to Malcolm X, MLK, Bobby Kennedy, Huey Newton and the Black Panthers, America was consistently, swiftly and brutally made aware that a dark power far beyond anything it had seen before stood lurking, ready and willing to snuff out the light of anything or anyone who dared question the direction they demanded we be headed.
Thus the 1960s remain the moment that America itself was killed off in a great coup by powers unknown over the course of 8 years, just as Eisenhower predicted and attempted to warn us about; the 1970s witnessed a long dark decade of shock, mourning and helplessness that was left behind from the ashes of the once great and proud nation.
If we just could have been able at the time to fully comprehend the powerful threat that Eisenhower was clearly warning us about, might we have been able to defend the nation better? Might we have been able to thwart those dark and invisible powers from killing our bravest and brightest and their insidious plans?
Being able now to only look back as an exercise in intellectual questioning, we will never be able to know truly what might have been had we heeded this president’s warning of clear and present dangers lurking below the surface within our own borders. But the one thing we still can do is listen intently to his speech and apply his understanding and our own historic experiences post-1960 and apply them to modern times and our own future as a people and as a nation. We can do this. We owe it to ourselves and future generations to do so.

Ed Hale Speaks Up In Defense of the Protesters In Iran In Latest TV Interview

October 12, 2022
Watch American singer Ed Hale interview about what’s happening in the current Iran protests, what the Iranian people are really like & what challenges they are facing in a revolution

Ed Hale appeared on the Persian news network Iran International this week to discuss the ongoing protests against the Islamic Republic of Iran, what the people there are fighting for, the challenges they face and how we in America can help their cause. Video can be viewed on Twitter or Youtube.

What’s Happening In Iran & Why It Is So Important

October 8, 2022
Video: What’s Happening In Iran Right Now & Why It Is So Important – Part One: The History
Video: What’s Happening In Iran Right Now and Why It Is So Important – Part Two: What I Learned While In Iran

The last two weeks have been incredible, both inspiring and heartbreaking, for the country and people of Iran and the implications of what a true Democratic Iranian Revolution would mean for the world.

We spent the last week creating a video (that we’ve now split into two parts) to help explain what’s happening in Iran right now in the bigger context of their history and who they are as a people, hoping to increase understanding of the Iranian people, their long, rich history and why these current protests are so vital, not just to the brave women and men on the frontlines in the streets, but also for world peace.

We believe what we are witnessing in Iran right now is historic. We know we are personally taking a big risk by posting the videos due to their openness & honesty, and it is something we are still actively discussing. But we also sincerely believe that our brave friends in Iran deserve all the attention & support they can get, including a real world understanding of who they are & what they’re fighting for. Freedom Justice Equality & basic human rights.

If you have any questions or desire to get more involved to support the cause please feel free to reach out. Together we can. – Ed Hale

Human Ancestor Skulls & Bones Found in a South African Cave Are Over 3.5 Million Years Old — 1 Million Years Older Then Science Originally Concluded

June 29, 2022

The field of anthropology continues to get upended over the last 20 years. There are two most interesting developments, from my viewpoint and personal studies. One was the discovery that there was a time in relatively recent history — 50,000+ years ago — when FIVE different species of human beings roamed the earth at the same time. All different species, but all human. Yes Neanderthal was one of them. And so too were Homo sapien sapiens. That’s us. Three others also lived on earth simultaneously with us and Neanderthal. [will come back to list their exact species name].

The other development of course was the cracking of the genome or genetic code of the most modern, or better put the last surviving human being, Homo sapien sapiens. This remarkable scientific achievement changed anthropology forever. We no longer classify humans from a nationality perspective, but from a tribal i.e. genetic perspective.

From a species perspective almost all human beings are genetically 80-95% Homo sapiens, with anywhere between 5-20% Neanderthal. In other words, no one is strictly a Homo sapien as their species.

From a racial perspective, we’ve brought it down to 4 different races, sub Saharan African, Caucasian, south eastern Asian, and north eastern Asian. In my opinion this is a deeply flawed and soon to change conclusion, because what race are norther Africans a part of? They aren’t Caucasian nor are they south or north eastern Asian.

From there we go what genetic TRIBE(s) everyone is from. And this is done through genetic testing now, NOT from where people live or where they used to live or where their ancestors lived. A person may live in America, their ancestors lived all over Europe, but genetically they are Russian and Scandinavian, since Scandinavians originally populated Russia. Someone like me for instance who is half italian half English is genetically a small part italian a small part english a larger part German and and an even larger part Scandinavian. And for obvious reasons. Since the Vikings (modern day Scandinavian) were the first people to populate Germany, and then both the regions of England and Italy; the Germans came soon after to those regions. So our family may be “from” Italy and England. But genetically we’re primarily Scandinavian and German for a much longer time period.

Another fascinating aspect of the genetic testing revolution of anthropology is how it dissolves the idea people have that being Jewish is a religious demarcation, not a nationality. They’re right about that. It’s not a nationality. But it is it’s own unique and singular genetic tribe, different from every other human tribe on earth.

The primary change — and this is still a fast moving evolution in the science — is that #1 we no longer categorize humans by nationality (from an anthropological sense); we classify human beings according to what tribe they are of based on their genetic markers, and there are a LOT more unique genetic tribes of human being than we originally theorized; and where a person or their ancestors lived for the last few hundred years doesn’t matter half as much as we used to give credit for.

In any case, the blow article presents a recent dig that blows the entire dating system of human beings off by a good million years, making us much older than we originally presumed. More later.

On Social Welfare & Safety Net Programs

June 28, 2022

Comment: “Very admirable, but who exactly would be “fronting the bill” for all of that??”

Ed Hale:
Now don’t shoot me, but after studying other democracies around the world, that lean more socialist and less cut throat capitalist, we do find 1, (hold, don’t respond yet) whole populations of countries whose basic needs are met, based on a top down distribution system and they can still manage to not tax anyone more than 39%. One aspect of these systems is the recognition by everyone in the country, not just the governments — remember, they’re elected by the people, that once someone has collected a few million, they don’t need nor even benefit from millions or billions more.
The caveat: they are of course smaller countries with far fewer people. Which several of you have already reminded me of. I get that.
The irony, as I type this out, is that I am “the person in our friends group” who gets attacked the most for my extreme pro-capitalist views and defenses. I really really believe it’s what made America the best country in human history. (Not Democracy, because that’s common all over planet earth, and there are other countries that have much better more functional democracies.). It’s our capitalist spirit and the freedoms we have to do whatever we want to create and succeed. The lack of laws and limitations on our population in regards to business (comparatively) are singular and very beneficial. So I dont just support it; I love it. Plenty of my more blue blooded friends think I’m a fascist for loving capitalism so much. Fine.

BUT I do think we’ve created an extreme economic imbalance in the country. And I mean Czarist Russia or monarchical Great Britain level economic imbalance. It’s only a matter of time before America goes full on french or Bolshevik Revolution due to these imbalances. Just a thought, based on human history. Where America is now, with a relative few so wealthy they’re able to burn 100 dollar bills for fun and the majority not able to even pay for their health insurance, eventually they’re going to see the con and resist and revolt.
(IMO that’s what the Trump vote was. Revolt against wealthy elitists. Ironically. If the nomination went to Bernie, the candidate who actually won the nomination, it would have been an election between two outsiders both offering an “f this system” platform.)
Frankly, I’m at a point now where I’m more compassionately concerned about millions of people unable to make ends meet than I am about paying a high tax rate as I was 20 years ago. I’ve travelled to and lived in too many other democracies where everyone is cared for to believe the myths about “we can’t do that here”.
I’d really like to wake up one day and know that everyone’s basic needs are being met by a functioning compassionate system. That might be socialist capitalism. I’m alright with that now.
PS – this idea that we throw around that “people won’t be motivated to work” is still true now. In the present system. And it’s a small percentage. Most people would be more inclined to work hard and create something if they weren’t so angry depressed and desperate about paying their bills.
PPS – the other argument billionaires love to promote, they won’t be encouraged to philanthropy anymore. (!!!!!! Have to get that anger off my chest) Do I really have to even say it??? How about a system like so many other countries have where we don’t NEED billionaires to hold philanthropy over our heads. It’s a scapegoat to justify all the loopholes we allow. “Hey I’ll build a hospital wing if you let me pay only 3% in taxes this year through loopholes.” No thanks. We’ll build our own hospital wings.

Comment: “Admirable ideas. But source beings don’t ask for free gifts. Giving things away to people just creates more dependence.”

Ed Hale: Aaahhh…. See, I dont see the above as “free gifts” at all. BUT I’m viewing it from way above with the perspective of the last 7,000 years of recorded human history and heck, even adding the prior 3,000 — so from the moment of the melting of the last ice age when Homo sapiens first started forming modern civilizations (which admittedly is from where I always view nearly everything when we’re speaking of humanity).
From there one doesn’t see the “free gifts” idea. What one sees is a cooperative human society focused on survival and long rooted in 10,000 years of deliberate maneuvering and intelligent strategic decisions where each member does what they are naturally best at to serve the whole. Strong ass men are going to hunt, or work security and defense, or chop wood and build fortresses; smart folks are going to design better and better weapons or fortresses or tools; younger fertile women are going to carry children to term, have the babies, feed the babies i.e. one part of a much larger whole that perpetuates the species; older women are going to teach them how to do that, help and nurture them while they do that; etc etc. That’s just a tiny sample of a much larger picture of 10,000 years of human history as we know it. Humans have survived by working as a collective.
(If a man sits down at a fire to eat and play with this babies and kids in his tribe after a long day hunting, he’s not thinking that that fire that someone else built is a “free gift”, nor is that meal someone else cooked all day that he’s eating a free gift, nor are those babies he’s playing with a free gift. He understands how successful human societies work.

Comment: Ed Hale Wow You should be a poet, or writer, even a song-writer!😘
You speak with truth and wisdom.
We see the natural way of things.
One day…

Comment: his intelligence is refreshing and I love it! We could use a daily dose of Ed Hale and his wise words❤️👍💯

Comment: Ed Hale Yes everyone needs to contribute. I agree with that. Handouts are not providing anything of value in return. #Disservice

New Song “On the Day They Overturned”

June 27, 2022

In the immediate aftermath of the United States Supreme Court decision to overturn Roe Vs. Wade on Friday, Ed Hale performed a new song entitled “On the Day They Overturned” on his Instagram account and his Transcendent Television channel on YouTube, along with a copy of the song’s powerful, at times graphic lyrics.
“I haven’t been writing as many songs with lyrics lately as you know, because I’ve really been into writing these orchestral guitar instrumentals. But this one came rather fast & furious in the last 48 hours. Like everybody else i was in a state of shock all day after hearing the news, dumbstruck really.”

“The song came to me late Friday night, popped in my head pretty much completed. Saturday I just had to sit down and flesh out the lyrics. Took Sunday to fine tune them. But the song already knew what it was, knew what it wanted to say. I just had to listen.”

On social media Hale wrote, “This song was particularly inspired by human rights and enlightenment activist Devkirn Khalsa, based on a whirlwind of important, intense conversations we had during those first 48 hours. Some of the lyrics are nearly direct translations of conversations we’ve had about these topics in the last two days.”

Performed on a 1971 Hofner 489 acoustic guitar. Two microphones going direct in mono. No treatment or effects.

Lyrics

“On the Day They Overturned”

On the day they overturned
I looked away the world was burning
On the day they overturned
As we were fighting to be heard
All was lost but we didn’t understand
How the rights we had
Could be wrestled from our hands
On the day they overturned
On the day they overturned
Didn’t I see you crawling
Through an alley on your knees
The scars of pain
Carved in your face
As you lay bleeding in the street
Like an animal
I know
That’s what we fought for

On the day they overturned
I looked away, my body trembling
On the day they overturned
A final battle cry was heard
A billion people gathered on the earth
To mourn a nation’s death
So soon after it’s birth
On the day they overturned
On the day they overturned
Didn’t we see it coming
From a million miles away
When states misguided
By stacked courts and gods
Become theocracies
It’s inevitable
I know
That’s what we fought for
I know
Isn’t that what we fought for

On the day we overcame
stared straight ahead
And never fumbled
On the day we overcame
And stopped corruption in our name
All was lost
But they didn’t understand
How it was theirs to lose
As we snatched it from their hands
On the day we overcame
On the day we overcame
We finally raised the flag of freedom
In the morning light
Not for the men the straight
the christian or the wealthy or the white
But for everyone
I know
It’s what we fought for

Music and Lyrics by Ed Hale

Another Shooting In America’s Longest War

June 20, 2022

A friend just sent us a note that 3 people in his backyard of Birmingham, Alabama were killed a few days back, one of them he knew going back a long time. Like many, his desperate plea is for prayers. Comforting maybe for the survivors, in the moment and on the surface, but clearly not a solution. Because the problem is only getting worse, despite all the best intentions of countless prayers. His message steeled my resolve even more.
Thank you sharing this my fiend. It is with continued shock, grief and sorrow that we are once again reminded just how bad this crisis has become and just how important our mission is to stop it. This past year I have been slowly learning, realizing, that it doesn’t matter if we knew them or not, nor “how many”, nor if they were children or adults.

The tragedy is that we are forced to consider, and then attempt to qualify these different aspects of mass shootings on a near daily basis now. Which ones to highlight and report on. Which ones to make a big national deal out of… Child versus adult. How many. Did we know them. Where were they. As if one is better or worse than the other in some way…. When it is all terribly tragic, and worse perhaps, almost entirely preventable.
The fact that if we blink, or take a day off, yet another, or five more, or ten more, transpire somewhere else in our nation that week. It is an endless parade of human loss and families destroyed now in America’s most personal and devastating war.
I am so very sorry that this hit so close to home for you brother.
Long bear hug,
E

One of the most disturbing images that has burned itself into my memory is that of a weasly little man called Ted Cruz a few weeks back. One of the biggest impediments to stopping gun violence in America, he decides to show his face down in Uvalde, Texas… turn it into a political campaign event for himself.

A mass of reporters from other countries had flown in to the States to cover the story. One of them had the courage to ask Cruz, who is a senator of what’s turned into a mess of a country and therefore has some power to actually improve things for the shocked and devastated Americans, what he’s going to do about this latest mass shooting.

Cruz blusters around the issue claiming they need to “research it more”. The reporters all laugh. Because the answer was ridiculous. The idea that the United States needs to “research more” to stop mass murders instead of pass laws to stop them is a foolish one, either a silly attempt at deception of only the most intellectually compromised citizens, or the ramblings of a true idiot with limited mental capacity.

Cruz then goes on to mention “American Exceptionalism”, to which the whole gaggle of reporters start laughing. “How can you possibly justify American exceptionalism when your government permits these mass murders and won’t do anything to prevent them?” they ask. “I’m sorry you think American exceptionalism is funny” Cruz replies. As if he’s just delivered a winning jab at some junior high school political debate.

At this very moment all eyes and cameras abandoned the man, recognizing that he didn’t have anything substantive to add to the story nor the larger discussion about gun violence or mass shootings in America.

One can imagine foreign journalists and reporters discussing having to fly to America yet again to cover one of their incessant mass shootings. How they must be both shocked and entertained at the stupidity of the people. The conversations they must have amongst each other… “what did the Americans say this time? Will they finally start passing laws to prevent gun violence there?” “No, on the contrary. They want to pray more and increase guns in all their schools.”

It is a record of the times. The year is 2022.

In America’s War On Gun Violence, Another Congressman Bites the Dust

June 3, 2022

See the New York Times article about New York congressman Chris Jacobs below.

THIS is what the WAR IN AMERICA on mass shootings and gun violence looks like. A Republican congressman from New York, saddened and shocked by the mass shooting and murder of 10 residents of his district in Buffalo felt that he “had no choice but to speak up and try to do something to stop this madness”.
He received so much pushback, anger, hate mail, threats, and pulled support from the enemy, the NRA and the Republican corporation (yes, thinly disguised as a political party), that a week later he pulled out of the race completely.
One man, who dared to be honest, be courageous, show that he has a heart and a conscience in that vicious Republican machine, and he’s gone. no longer will he do anything good or bad as a civil servant for the American people. He was shut up and put down like a dog in less than a week by the enemy. And he was on THIER side.
So when people on the other side question you about America being at war, have faith, be brave, stand tall, know the facts are on your side. On OUR side.
They’ll laugh. They’ll attempt to minimize the TWENTY (20) mass shootings we’ve had just this week in the United States. They’ll blame it on everything but free and easy legal access to guns. But you know better.
This weekend we will create a quick and easy list to Share of the bills already proposed in congress and the Senate to become laws that would put an end to this madness overnight. And none of them involve “banning guns”. That is, again, just a talking point the enemy uses to confuse people so they’ll say things like “gosh I wish there was something we could do” or better yet hoping people will do nothing because they’re just too damn confused.
Take heart. There is nothing difficult or confusing about this issue. It’s a simple fix. 💪

With America Now In a Civil War, After 20 Mass Shootings In a Week, Anyone Who Is Against Gun Safety & Gun Control Laws Is the Enemy

June 1, 2022

Annnnnnd… there’s another one. This is the 18th mass shooting since Uvalde, TX. 18 MASS SHOOTINGS IN A WEEK IN THE UNITED STATES.
I said it a few days ago and I’ll keep saying it: AMERICA IS AT WAR. After last week’s Transcendence Diaries post about this subject a few people timidly emailed me to ask “what do you mean “at war”?” “Timidly” because most, if not all, Americans have been brainwashed and indoctrinated since birth to be scared sh*itless to talk about guns or gun laws. It’s a more delicate and tense subject than religion sex or politics. And that’s just how the enemy wants it to be. They want everybody to be scared to death of talking about guns. So nobody speaks up about.
It’s not that people don’t care. They care. At least half the people care a lot. Polls show it’s a lot more. But it’s only half or less of the American population who have the courage to speak up about it. I witnessed it profoundly last week. Everybody who agreed or had an opinion about the issue and the essay and social media posts private messaged me or emailed me. Nobody wanted to comment or speak about their shock or horror or sadness publicly. And we are talking about WEEKLY MASS MURDER here.
An entire population of 370 million people socially terrified to voice their concern their sadness or their shock about mass shootings in their own country or the mass proliferation of guns in their country or the barbaric and primitive near complete lack of laws governing guns. That’s a shocking reality.
But it’s been beaten into the psyche of Americans for centuries. “Guns are a constitutional right and mass shootings are an inconvenient byproduct of that right. Deal with it. And if you find that odd or disturbing or surreal, well you must not be a patriotic American.” Even if you served in the military to defend your country you are still “unpatriotic” if you support gun safety legislation”.
So we will keep saying it over and over and over. If AMERICA IS AT WAR, who’s fighting who? Who are WE? And who are WE at war with?
WE are the American people. Any American citizen who finds our history our reputation and our present reality regarding guns and mass shootings barbaric, abominable, deeply disturbing, completely unnecessary and wants to change it.
WHO are we at war with? WE ARE AT WAR with anyone who continues to stand in the way of the country’s desire and commitment to evolve and progress on this issue, and stop the weekly sometimes daily mass shootings in our streets.
We are at war with the NRA. We are at war with the senators and congress people who are on the payroll of the NRA (nearly all of the Republican Party) and deliberately pass laws to make guns easier to get and own, OR overtly and proudly prevent laws from passing to control gun violence in America.
The enemy uses every trick and strategy in the book to defeat us. They’re doing it now. As they always have. They deliberately mess with your mind. Do not let them. They are COUNTING ON your fear of speaking up. They are counting on appealing to your patriotism or “respect for those who have different viewpoints”. They want you to believe that “mass murders are just a different viewpoint”, that it’s THEIR RIGHT to defend guns and mass shootings.
They’ll tell you that guns are their right. It’s in the constitution. Just like slavery. Just like “negroes are only 3/5ths human”. Just like “the right to steal the land of and kill so called “Indians” (this is the ignorance we are battling). Just like women not having the right to vote.
Considering it’s despicable record on human rights, “American constitution” is the poorest excuse the enemy has to defend guns and mass killings, except the fact that they’re literally trying to defend GUNS AND MASS SHOOTINGS.
The enemy will tell you that “guns aren’t the cause. Evil is”. No one of a rational reasonable even semi-intelligent mind need respond to that level of idiocy.
The enemy will tell you that mental health is the cause of mass shootings and they want to improve it. But they don’t. They consistently defund it.
The enemy will tell you that we need to create schools more like prisons in the United States, with steel doors and armed guards (with more guns) at all the entrances, but NOT do anything about the guns.
The enemy is NOT our friend. They may be in our family. They may be part of our friends’ group. They may be our neighbor or go to our church. They may be “nice people”. But if they’re defending the mass proliferation of guns without laws or licenses or permits or background checks to buy or own them, they are NOT our friends. They are the enemy.
If they are voting for or donating money to senators or congress people who deliberately prevent gun laws to protect us, they are NOT our friends.
Be sad. This IS sad. It’s heartbreaking. But GET MAD. Do not be afraid. Do not be intimidated. Do not get sucked into “respectful debates about guns or gun laws” with these insane people. Those days are over.
If you are tired if you are sick if you are repulsed and disturbed and shaken to your core by the constant parade of mass shootings in the United States and believe we needed to do something about it decades ago, GET MAD, STAY MAD, TAKE ACTION. EVERY DAY.
We need to stop this madness. The reason we are at war is because the majority of us already know this. Do not be mislead. The enemy will continue to tell you you’re crazy for wanting gun laws until you’re kneeling in a street clutching your own murdered child. THAT is who they are.
They’ll tell you they’re “sorry” and offer you “their prayers” but advise you that “we can’t take away their rights to freely buy and own as many guns as they want to and they don’t want to be boggled down by laws”.
Do not listen to them. Do not debate with them. Do not believe you have some obligation to respect them. You ARE sane. The idea that you’re not just because you want to increase laws on gun control is extreme gaslighting. Don’t fall for it.
America is at war. This is Week Two. TAKE MORE ACTION. We will win this war the same way we won emancipation of black people, or women’s right to vote, or civil rights, or hate crime laws, or equal rights for LGBTQ or Black Lives Matter . We WILL win this one too ✊🏽.
