Republicans at WAR with Democrats

Civil War:

To all intents and purposes the USA is in the middle of a civil war. The Republicans vs the Democrats. Why are they at war? Because the Republican Party has become a  RELIGION . In fact it is now a Cult – The trump Cult. The trump has turned the Republican Party into a cult, the trumpists , which is the worst form of religion on the planet. A cult displays the worst characteristics possible under the guise of a religion (mainly for tax purposes). Similar to Scientology, to my mind, is now a cult and no longer the healing group that L.Ron Hubbard had in mind.

Edit: 15/Jan/2021 Today I heard a very accurate definition of The Ruspublican’s problem. Their behavior has become TRIBAL rather than a POLITICAL. Wow. Too true! Just like the ANC (African National Congress) in South Africa.

The Republican Party :

Also referred to as GOP (Grand Old Party) is now a body-devided. The visible and active side of this body is now (Jan, 2020) a cult with trump as its leader and Commander in Chief (acting as a dictator). They will continue to be seen as this cult until the sane (and VERY CONCERNED) members break away from the trump cult and reform the Republican Party as the GOP. This can only happen if there is a person who is strong enough to lead this party. At this time I am afraid that the current “leadership” is so stuck in their policy of GREED (Profit is everything) and their FEAR (total ignorance and misunderstanding) of socialism that they cannot grasp the concept of a united America.

In terms of TheCode – RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) these leaders are all stuck at the responsibility Level of 1 ( = SELF). They certainly cannot even claim that they are at responsibility Level 2 ( = FAMILY) because they are prepared to sacrifice their families to ensure that they keep their political jobs. They have zero/none/no RESPECT for their opposition political party as trump has convinced them that The Democrats are now “the enemy”.  This FEAR (Yes! It is the fear and complete lack of understanding) of the Democratic Party and their objectives which results in the conviction the Democratic Party is out to destroy the Republican Party. It is because trump recognized this flaw in the Republican Party and set out to use that flaw to further his own ends. (see:  trump-as-dictator for a description of trump’s EVIL agenda).

The paragraph title refers to the WikipediA document on the Republican Party but, unfortunately, the personal GREED, which borders on insanity, for many of the present leaders of this party has reduced any and all of their policies to a) Keep my job b) If I don’t support trump and enable his madness I will loose my job c) If trump is impeached I will loose my job because “the enemy” may treat me the way I deserve. And d) Again to Keep my job and my “position of power”. Even if democracy, the people of America and my oath of office are damaged (or destroyed and go down in flames) in the process THIS IS THE ONLY POLICY THAT IS IN THE MINDS of trumpist’s (people who are part of the trump Cult rather than representatives of the American people ie. elected politicians). It is unfortunate that The Republican Party do not have any active policies in play at this time. The trump’s “we are going to make America great again” means “I will ensure that everything I do makes ME richer regardless of the cost to America AS A COUNTRY or the American people”. There is of course an advantage in having money in the Treasury because trump will find a way of getting some of it. Hence cutting off payments to the WHO regardless of who may have been harmed by that action. This complete lack of active policies also ensures that there is nothing for the Democratic Party to criticise. Rather a significant problem. Particularly for America as a country.

The Republican Party and the disgusting “so-called” journalists who contribute to some of the social media world and sensational “news” media – such as Fox News, have a choice. They can precipitate this terrible Second American Civil War by continuing to: a) further enable trump and ANY part of his EVIL agenda b) mislead the American people about the objectives and ideals of the Democratic Party and c) ignore the first and most important part of TheCode – RRR (Respect before Responsibility before Rights) – being RESPECT.

-OR-

The Republican Party can gather any NON-trump supporters left in the Party to form an alliance of the true GOP as a group of people who can a) RESPECT the Oath they took when they took office b) RESPECT the wishes of ALL Americans who have the interest and well-being of America and the rest of the Planet at heart c) DISCONNECT from trump and any and all of his mis-informed and mis-guided followers d) RESPECT and try to understand the new President of the USA, President Joe Biden, and his policies (he has 7+million more supporters in your DEMOCRACY!) e) SUPPORT him in his efforts to rebuild a very tarnished and Disunited States of America that has been created by The Republicans mistake of supporting and electing trump f) understand and apply TheCode .

Last but not least is that trump AND HIS MISGUIDED FOLLOWERS MUST ALL BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR TERRIBLE LACK OF JUDGEMENT AND THEIR DISREGARD OF THE FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF THE AMERICAN CONSTITUTION. This is the only message that the trumpist’s will clearly understand. Every day that this is delayed increases the inappropriate feeling of being “done” which trump has INITIATED and which he continues to PROMOTE ! Not only does trump continue to promote the lies, mis-information and discontent but WOW (word-of-mouth) makes this discontent far more successful that truth. Rather like Covid-19.

It is trump’s EVIL and AMORAL use of Covid-19 to create chaos in the USA which is causing the death of more than 4000 American citizens per day ie.

4000 DEATHS PER DAY

This is more than the total number of deaths caused by external terrorists on 9/11 !!!   And Mitch McConnell, the supposed leader of the Republican Party in the Senate, cannot convene The Senate to sanction (Impeach AND apply the 25th amendment) on trump. IMHO he needs to be held accountable as a trump accomplice. Any person who continues to defend trump in any manner whatsoever needs to be charged as an accompliuce!!

The Democratic Party :

The Democratic Party on the other hand have definite policies (AT THIS TIME), objectives and principles which they wish to put in place. In terms of TheCode The Democratic Party have a significant responsibility level. This is Level 5 (= THE PLANET) because part of President Joe Biden’s plans which include POSITIVE actions regarding Climate Change.  Level 5 is about as high as we (human beings) can aspire to at this time! They are not stuck at level 1 = SELF like trump and his cult. Please note that 2=FAMILY, 3=Social Groups and 4=Country which are all more in keeping with the Oath of Office, which trump does not even comprehend, never mind understand and which Joe Biden will take on January 20th with  understanding and intention.

While trump and his followers in the Republican Party are in confused disarray between those who believe in and are committed to their Oath of service and those who believe any or all of the trump BS (including the non-fact that The Democratic Party is intent on turning America into a socialist state) what they are achieving is the RAPID growth of insurrection and non-peaceful riots in the name of justifiable protests.

This situation is actually less harmful that the Covid-19 pandemic BUT has the POTENTIAL of doing far more harm that Covid-19 IN THE LONG TERM.  Covid-19 will either be significantly impacted by the vaccine,  will diminish in intensity as the trump-promoted herd immunity begins to take effect or will have killed sufficient potential victims for the bell-curve of deaths to start diminishing.  Considering that the death rate for week 1 – 2021 is over 40,000 the top of the curve will be at > 500,000 (half-a-million) and the downward curve will record many more deaths. IMHO at least another 150 to 200 thousand people will die before the USA will be in a position to become optimistic about normality.

The trump would have been advised by someone in his entourage of this possibility. Whether trump was capable of understanding or vaguely comprehending this fact trump made the decision that his presidency and his continued access to lots of funding/money was more important TO HIM than those number of deaths. In fact he made the decision that the chaos caused by Covid-19 would be a very useful “distraction” in the event of him not being able to win or manipulate his success in the 2020 election.  BTW remember that the main reason that he believes (and trump HAS convinced himself) that the election was rigged is because his efforts to rig the election were not successful and he does not believe it possible that Joe Biden was able to do a better job of “rigging” than he was.

So the incoming Democratic President is faced with 1) the Covid-19 crises created largely by trump’s incompetence and desire for chaos 2) the American racial unrest which has been “encouraged” by trump to create more unrest 3) the pathetic animosity of the Republican Party – another level of hate and unrest aggravated by trump at every opportunity 4) the economic crises – which is actually recovering on its own now that trump is distracted by his loss of the presidency 5) the many unstable “solutions” to international relationships that trump has managed to use as vote-promoting exercises 6) the MANY and serious breaks that trump has managed to create with all of America’s allies and 7) the complete disarray in all of America’s security, judiciary and police that the trump has created with all his inappropriate firings and hirings.  I wonder how many challenges I have missed? I have sent President Joe Biden a letter of congratulation on his election. I would be most surprised if he manages to see it in among his thousands of far more pressing issues but perhaps it will carry some good Karma.

Joe Biden won by a thin thread (7/300  of the population). 7+ million votes is not so “slim” but he has many millions of Americans whom trump has turned into a mis-guided and dangerous group of people. I do so hope that The Republican Party can find a new leader to lead them to some semblance of order and an understanding of TheCode. Co-operation with President Joe Biden and a bi-partisan approach to all of the challenges listed above will ensure a swift recovery of American Pride and achievement. They will grow to be stronger than ever. But if The Democrats continue to be treated as an enemy the Second American Civil War will blossom into reality and the chaos will continue for many years to come.

One really good thing which has happened to The Democratic Party is that they won the two Senate Seats in Georgia. There is hope that President Joe Biden will be able to solve many of Americas problems with the support of previous Presidents and hopefully without even the presence of trump. I do hope that Impeachment will exclude trump from the title of President in any shape or form and that this is accomplished as quickly as possible.

Failure of USA Government

The one thing that trump has achieved is to highlight the failures of the USA Government PRACTICES as a whole. I hope that President Joe Biden has the strength, health and tenacity to set at least some of this right.

See my letter to the President.

The USA Gov has drifted far away from their own constitution in their pursuit of Greed.

The best analysis is from The Lucretia Report. This is that document with thanks The Lucretia Report and Ian Stephens :

The Lucretia Report

Americans have long claimed to have the best system of government in the world, with checks and balances, a separation of powers, and cadre of competent administrators who have only the best for the people at heart. The events of this past year however have proven more than any other period in living memory though that that is not and never was true. People long said that our system of government was impeccable, but in fact it was only sustained by luck and the willingness of people in power to sustain it. It has only remained intact because no one ever levied enough stress on it. But that stress was applied in 2020, and our government failed to meet its stated goals because of it.

The United States Constitution, which lays out the system by which our government operates, provides a number of goals in its preamble.

“to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity”

“To form a more perfect union” is of course empty rhetoric, the meaning of which can be changed from one person to another depending on your definition of “perfect.” From there though 2020 can demonstrate the failure of our government to meet each and every one of these goals.

The state sets out to “establish justice” yet in 2020’s opening act it was proven that some people are above the law as long as they can maintain the loyalty of at least 34 votes in the United States Senate, and in the closing days of 2020 it has proven that violations of the law are acceptable and forgivable as long as the criminals at question can maintain the favor of a President with pardon power. Meanwhile, as wealthy white criminals are allowed to walk free, 200 black men a year are shot to death by police in the United States, often for minor crimes or no crime at all. This was brought so clearly into focus this year by the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, Jacob Blake, and more. Our government has failed to establish justice.

The Constitution claims that it has a goal to “ensure domestic tranquility,” yet the United States has no such thing. Resulting from the Government’s failure to establish justice, America saw the largest protest movement in the country’s history, with a backlash of right-wing terrorism to match. The United States is more divided than it has been at any point since the civil war and faces a greater threat from domestic terrorism than it has faced since Reconstruction. The nation is all but tranquil.

The founders claimed that their system of government would “provide for the common defense” and “promote the general welfare,” yet a controllable disease has ravaged the country, killing so many that we have come to be desensitized to thousands of daily deaths and accepted as a fact of life the reality that we can be struck down at any moment. Meanwhile millions are unemployed, millions impoverished, millions homeless, millions hungry. Breadlines stretch for miles in allegedly the wealthiest nation in history. The general welfare and the common defense have been forgotten.

Our government promised to “secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity” yet this year has proven how fragile the “blessings of liberty” are. A free and fair election was upheld only by the good grace of a few people in powerful positions, but there is no guarantee that the next time this happens – and without change it will happen again – that people so noble will occupy those same positions.

The American government has failed to achieve its stated goals and has by that act proven that it is insufficient to be trusted with the United States. The only logical and righteous recourse is major reform. We have a government where Senators representing less than 15% of the population can hold the country hostage, where wildly popular and necessary policy cannot be enacted, where far too much of the wealth and priority of the nation is concentrated into an ever-growing smaller portion of the population, and the malevolence or incompetence of a single man can throw the country into a tailspin. That is an inherently unstable system of government – one that could fail or collapse at any moment.

Such radical failure requires radical solutions. It requires the abolition of the plutocratic and undemocratic institutions of voter suppression and rule by the minority. It requires the destruction of the white supremacist institutions that have ensured that the adage of “all men are created equal” is not and cannot be a reality. It requires a redistribution of wealth and a turning over of the system that has allowed but a few people to control the nation’s resources and the spoils of prosperity.

The system will not correct itself unaided. Until such radical reform is undertaken, until the corrupt and broken system is torn down and built back up, the system of government that failed us in 2020 – that always failed to live up to its promise – will continue to fail us and will continue to perpetuate an unequal, undemocratic, and unstable cycle of despair.

Solution to TODAY’S Problem 1:

This certainly lays out a blueprint for the new government of the USA for 2021. If President Joe Biden places some importance on the issues raised in this doc. he can start sorting the problems of the USA. The USA is the most powerful country in the world militarily. But morally it is being shown up in a VERY bad light. The USA is, unfortunately at this time, THE starting point for sorting out the rest of the world. Getting the US Constitution functional is certainly a start.

A Solution to TODAY’S Problem 2:

Another problem, and possibly even a more significant problem than the functionality of the Constitution of the USA, is the problem of SOCIAL MEDIA. I do believe that Sasha Baron Cohen puts this into perspective. Please watch this video:

And with that I would like to take the opportunity to wish all those who have taken the trouble to register with RRR  AND their families throughout the world,

A Happy and Healthy 2021

May many of your wishes come true and may you have the strength to apply decisions based on TheCode,

Is trump a Russian Sleeper?

This is the ultimate conspiracy theory for 2020. OR IS IT?

Jude: 23% of the American people think trump (he is not entitled to have his name spelled with a capital letter IMHO) is the best president that the USA has ever had. Statistically speaking  this could mean that as many as 2% of the population of the PLANET (7.835 billion 28th Dec, 2020) possibly base their existence on GREED and to hell with the rest of the planet AS A WHOLE.

Jude:On the 7th FEBRUARY, 2020 I started taking an interest in the “antics” of a very scary man, being Donald J. Trump, who is the outgoing President of the USA. I wrote this article in the hope that someone in America would start to appreciate how dangerous this man really is. I tried very hard to get this message across in Quora. I was gravely concerned that this man was really dangerous and that America was in severe danger because of the fact that “The American Dream” is based on PROFIT at pretty well any cost. I believe that nearly ALL very rich people have achieved their wealth at the cost of the well being of many OTHER people. AND because of GREED (the number one problem on this planet) this never stops. So the-rich-get-richer WHILE-THE-POOR-GET-POORER. This the theme song of the modern world.

Jude: Mary L. Trump wrote Too Much and Never Enough which is a scary description of trump’s state of mind. He is so self-centered that he is not even remotely in touch with the world other than HIMSELF.

Or is this really what is going on? IMHO I believe that it is all about a mis-information campaign.

Jude: I do not believe that trump has sufficient brain power to achieve the amount of destruction which he has achieved! Mainly by accident!  My outside-the-box thinking  process has enabled me to solve many problems in my life. The process is based on TheCode and  simplicity is the fundamental rule. Always step outside the problem and look at it from above. Totally objectively.  The problem of trump is SO COMPLEX that it requires that we make assumptions and then test them to see the likelihood of them being true. So:

What if trump is a Russian Sleeper controlled by none other than Guess Who as the ultimate weapon to destroy the USA? I believe that there is better than a 23% probability that this is true!

I am Guess Who. My background is Intelligence/Misinformation/Covert. This at ANY COST other than to me personally.  My objective in life is to be the richest AND THE MOST POWERFUL person. The Dictator of the World. I am Russian and patriotic to a fault. We have been “respected” as the most powerful country AND the most feared country in the world. I can achieve my personal objectives by making “Russia great again”. I have more than sufficient wealth so now I must establish myself as the most powerful person on the planet.

Let me consider how this objective can be achieved :

  1. I cannot take over the whole world by war. Certainly not with conventional war tactics. This was thoroughly tested by Germany with two failed attempts. Nuclear war is clearly not practical. Especially with THOUSANDS of nuclear weapons available for activation around the world. The planet could DEFINITELY not survive such an onslaught. The Americans proved that chemical warfare was not effective and rather self-destructive (Vietnam War) . This leaves biological warfare and that is fraught with terrible danger if it gets even slightly out of control (jude: If Covid-19 was intentional it has very effectively demonstrated that playing funnies with nature is NOT A GOOD IDEA – Christmas Day 2020 80 million infected, 1.75 million deaths world wide. Why is infected important? Because we do not yet have much idea about the long-term after effects. If Covid-19 was not intentional then nature rules supreme and nature is making an excellent bid to try and control the population of the planet!)
  2. The-whole-world is too much of a challenge in one go, so it must be done in chunks. The Chinese started on this path a LONG time ago by “establishing” themselves into MANY smaller chunks! (eg. Countries in Africa) Getting into a position of control and then ensuring that there was sufficient on-going chaos and/or confusion so that the target country does not have enough time, resources, intellect or energy to get themselves reorganized sufficiently enough to combat the Chinese influence. I (Guess Who) do not have the patience of the Chinese so I must start with the MOST powerful country, not the less powerful nations. So America is has to be. If I can get America on her knees so that most of the available energy and resources are occupied INTERNALLY the we can proceed from there. While America is in this state I may face considerable challenges from the Chinese but we can handle that when it becomes necessary to do so. On that subject the rest of the world are also watching China so iy is not the most serious threat to my objectives. Yet.
  3. How to I bring America to its knees? How do I use my experience and knowledge to get this done?  a) MIS-INFORMATION and CHAOS.  It worked very successfully for the KGB who frequently had the American Intelligence community chasing its tail. And the world is already in a very fragile state where few people have any level of responsibility higher than self (Jude: see RESPONSIBILITY for an understanding of the importance of this detail.) b) I have “that” 23% of “people” available as “my army” to support mis-infomation and probably enough chaos to achieve whatever may be necessary.  c) I have a base of “confused” politicians who seem to place their party before country. Particularly if I use the Republican Party as a base because GREED is a very fertile ground for mis-information.   d) I must have an insider to drive this mis-information campaign.  The more important,politically, that this person is, the more likely that the mis-information campaign will succeed. e) The internet is a far more powerful tool that the old, tedious, slow and costly Spy Game. Having carefully listened to many experts discussing Cyber Security and AI the internet is DEFINITELY the-way-to-go (Jude: Elon Musk recently gave a very informative AND SCARY talk on AI. PLEASE WATCH!!! He makes the statement that AI is more dangerous than nuclear weapons !!  Align this statement with worldwide Cyber Security, Homeland Security and the Internet and one must agree that the internet and Cyber Control is much more dangerous than nuclear bombs. This falls into the same level of understanding that climate change is less important than any persons personal wealth!  No planet = no life on earth. Which is therefore more important?  Easy to answer but not so easy to put in practice.) So that means the Internet is the most powerful tool for getting the mis-information campaign to succeed. f) I have to believe that my street-smart can win this battle. It is worth a try!
  4. The choice of THE PERSON for 3 d) (call him Mr d) ) will be the most important part of the mis-information campaign. This person will make or break the project. And the degree to which that person is managed will be the final decider!

In summary. I am Guess Who and to gain control of The World Part A must be a mis-information campaign using the Internet as the communication (and control) medium. To get this project rolling I need to identify a person of authority in the USA to manage the mis-information campaign. That person must assist and protect the mis-information campaign to the extent that the effectiveness of the USA, as a world influence, is sufficiently reduced for Part B to be designed and executed.

Plan A of the mis-information campaign.

2015 and some American guy comes to a colleague looking for a loan of a couple hundred million dollars. For that kind of money it has to be a BIG PROJECT so I show interest. During discussions this guy mentions that he may become President of the USA as part of his “security” on the loan. Lights flash and I realise two things. One that this could be my Mr. d) and two that the real estate that this guy (claims to) own could be of tremendous benefit to Russian espionage even if that was all that we gained from it. My enthusiasm was not sufficiently controlled however so the loan grew substantially and I think that I overplayed my hand a bit in convincing my Mr. d) what a tremendous guy he was and that he deserved to rule the world not just the USA. In case Mr d) did not make it as President or only lasted one term we did agree on a repayment date of 2021 ( 5 years rather than the ten years he requested). I did convince the guy that he was more likely to get the Presidents job by using the Republican Party rather than the Democrats because they were far more aligned with one another. The common ground being GREED, GREED, GREED. So he switched parties.

The 2016 elections duly rolled around and Mr. d) got himself nominated for the job of President. We (my colleagues and I) pointed out to Mr d) that the Internet was a very powerful tool. So to this end we offered Mr. d) lots of help and guidance. He did not really win the election because he lost out on the popular vote. But we were able to persuade him that the electoral vote would carry the day. I was very proud of the assistance we were able to provide in this endeavor and trump became my Mr. d).

His first mistake was that he nearly screwed up protecting our involvement with the project and all sorts of investigations ensued. These investigations required us to tell trump more than we wanted to about our methods and the knowledge that the Americans picked up enabled them, in turn,  to ensure that the 2020 elections were that much more secure. The result of this was that trump went and lost the 2020 elections. Because of his knowledge about the 2016 election process he is convinced that (now President) Biden got into power using the same techniques that were applied to 2016. And so he continues to fight the 2020 election result based on his knowledge of 2016. How else could he possibly have lost? Yes I know,  he is also battling with the fact that I told him that we could make him dictator of the world and that does not seem to be possible now.

However let us look on the bright side. Even if I do not get my half billion dollars back from the guy next year (repayment due 2015) the investment in trump has gone a long way towards the objectives defined in 3. a). The reign of mis-information campaign has only just started and trump, give him his due, is covering our tracks very, very successfully by sidelining all the skills in American institutions such as National Security, Attorney General, the Pentagon in General, Homeland Security AND the ALL IMPORTANT Cyber Security. I really appreciate all his efforts to undermine anything that Obama did because Obama did so many good things in the interests of the people and the USA in general. The Supreme Court was not so well done because trump did not recognise that the Justice Department could NOT be bought. Their oath of allegiance to the country was far more significant to them than trump’s one was to him.

Covid-19 was both a blessing and a catastrophe. The blessing was that trump had no idea how to do anything about it so he approached it like an ostrich with his-head-in-the-sand. The resulting chaos and confusion was (is??) far better than I could have imagined. Covid-19 is killing more people in the U.S.A. EVERY DAY than all the efforts of the terrorists achieved in the whole of their 9/11 campaign. The bad part is that this attitude managed to loose trump his Presidency.

Every cloud has a silver lining, however, and the fact that Plan A is now over and done with I have been saved the problem of dealing with trump when he starts to complain to me that he would be a far better DICTATOR of the WORLD than myself.

We have achieved the chaos and confusion part of Plan A. In fact far more successful than I would have dreamed possible. We now have to concentrate on Plan B to conclude the take-over of America. The Cyber attacks on America are progressing well and trump continues to protect us. I am a realist however and I am concerned that Joe Biden may prove to be the same sort of adversary for me as trump created for himself with Amy Coney Barrett and the Supreme Court.

Jude:As I finished this article I find that I have a member of my family that believes that trump has done a good job and that “Sleepy Joe” is going to destroy America during the four years that he is in office. I really cannot come to terms with this because I thought that this person was intelligent and logical. Is my character judgement that bad? Or is my assessment of the trump regime that inaccurate. Maybe they were just “having me on”? One thing for sure is that the world of mis-information is very, very scary. How is the common man ever to be sure of what is right and what is wrong. Well I believe that I have researched the world in sufficient detail to believe that the world-according-to-trump is one very dangerous place to be. However “my group” is only a few % more than the 23%. One has to admit that the drivers of the mis-information campaign are VERY powerful and very, very confusing.

Do wear a mask sometimes and ensure that you are able to demand your rights,

Guess Who .

Jude: Like Sam from “The Lord of the Rings” I have to believe that the truth will always win out in the end. Even though there are so few of us left with this hope. Please get to read and understand the TheCode . I sincerely believe there is HOPE for mankind in TheCode. It is a counter to the evil powers of trump and the ring of Sauron.

With less than a month, unfortinately a VERY LONG time in trumpland this is today’s assessment of trump – summary of the worst president in history.

Keep safe, and happy,

Jude

THE opposite for RESPECT.

Today I realized what the counter/opposite/balancing  emotion, feeling or action is for the word RESPECT. The word is FEAR.

Fear vs Respect.

Every day I have stronger convictions that the world world hangs together because of the balance of nature. This is covered in the philosophy of YinYang which is a very significant part of TheCode and its understanding and application.

The importance of RESPECT and a relationship to LOVE and LUST is discussed HERE . There is a much more significant power to the word RESPECT when one relates RESPECT to FEAR.

We express our FEAR in many different ways. Consider the terrible situation that is escalating in the USA at this time. The FEAR that trump is inciting throughout the country is based on the FEAR of losing money/profits (GREED) or power (GREED) or superiority (RACE) or even perceived respect (ELITISM/SNOBISH/self-righteousness) or lack-of-understanding(IGNORANCE) or even a FEAR of change. All this FEAR is translated into anger, defiance, riots and mob action and used by trump to further strengthen his unbridled ego (being a total narcissist) and  his adoring fans. He has created a  “presidential idol” which now has a following of a large proportion of American voters who not only believe every lie that he utters but are even prepared to donate large sums of money to him to keep him going.

All of these FEARS can be redirected and handled with RESPECT. Respect any person for long enough to gain an understanding about where they are coming from. Why they believe what they do. Find out that the misunderstandings and/or misinformation which you were applying to that person, or situation, is NOT a threat to you, your family or beliefs. Understand that you did not need to act (or re-act) in any way. You have a CHOICE and possibly even an opportunity to correct someone else misinformation, misunderstanding or ignorance.

Turn all your FEARS in RESPECT with patience, tolerance and maybe support or even just silence and understanding.

Love vs. Hate.

The opposite of LOVE is HATE. Most religions advise that all situations can be resolved with LOVE. But it is very difficult to switch HATE to LOVE. There is very little personal satisfaction and usually lots of residual resentment which no amount of prayer can eliminate. However turning HATE into RESPECT and then resolving any issues with RESPECTFUL conversation or dialogue can go a long way towards a solution and will certainly avoid conflict and/or violence.

TRIP SOUTH – Nov 2006.

0000-Goodbye Brisbane.

 

Prior to leaving Brisbane we travelled to Tangalooma to see the Dolphins.

 

Pelicans and all on the beach

Nov. 13 2006 Left Karen and Michaels and travelled south, stopping at the locksmith for a Portaloo key! Took “scenic” route through Kingscliff but area now so built up there are few ocean views.

Stopped for the night at small caravan park at Wooyeny. Paulene Kaye travelled down to see us and have tea.

Nov.14 Went via Ocean Views and Brunswick Heads and Bangalow to the Midson’s in Ewingsdale.

Nov.15 Walked in Byron Bay and went up to the Lighthouse. Spent the night again at Midson’s.

 

From Lighthouse. Byron Bay

Nov.16 Left on real start of our Southern Loop! Went via Lennox Head and Lake Ainsworth to Ballina and revisited old haunts before travelling down the Pacific Highway to our first free site stop  at Woodburn. Felt a little nervous but met the “Meandering Mitchells”.  David had been on the road for about 14 years! Brenda was his new lady who had been anxious about roadside stops  so we reassured each other. VERY noisy with all the passing trucks but otherwise uneventful night.

Nov.17 Short hop down to Grafton where we stopped overnight in the Big 4 – lovely grassy drive-through sites and quiet!

Nov.18 On impulse did a “left hand down” to Minnie Waters where we spent 2 nights in the caravan park and while there visited Wooli and drove along the beach to Sandon which is otherwise pretty inaccessible. The area was pretty with pleasant beaches and lakes.

Nov.20 On via Coffs Harbour where we walked out on the jetty and on to Sawtell.Overnight in the caravan park which was windy but pleasamt. Sawtell had a shady main street with seats to  watch the passing parade.

Nov.21 On to Urunga where we spent a week. Windy a lot of the time and we were eaten alive by sandflies! Walked regularly out on the boardwalk where we saw many different types of crabs  and seabirds including godwits and curlews. On a drive through the farming area saw cattle egrets with yellow breeding feathers which I had never seen before! We also went on a drive to  the hinterland up to Dorrigo and Bellingen to rainforest and the Dangar Falls.Saw Eastern Rosellas and back in the caravan park saw tree frogs, ibis, heron, crested doves, more rosellas,  galahs and bats at night.

This is what jetty poles were designed for!

Nov.28 Left Urunga for Nambucca Heads where we stopped overnight.

Nov.29 Got Rx for the sandfly bites which were still driving us NUTS! Continued on down the coast to Stuarts Head, Grassy Head and Stuarts Point before stopping overnight at Paddy’s Rest. It was  Stormy with strong wind.

Nov.30 Unhitched Turtle and headed up dirt road towards Yarrahapinin Lookout. Wind had brought part of a tree down across the road which Ian managed to haul clear using Tug.  Yarrahalinni was really beautiful.
