U.S. Power Elite 101 By Professor Domhoff – With Charts, Explanations And Stuff.

By Jerry Alatalo

Political Sociologist G. William Domhoff speaks on November 18, 2017

“If you do not specify and confront real issues, what you say will surely obscure them. If you do not alarm anyone morally, you yourself remain morally asleep. If you do not embody controversy, what you say will be an acceptance of the drift of the coming human hell.”

– C. WRIGHT MILLS (1916-1962) American sociologist

fter listening to a powerful 1969 public address by Political Sociology Professor G. William Domhoff posted at Our Hidden History channel on YouTube, we found the following 2017 keynote presentation by Professor Domhoff, nearly 50 years later, to be of great interest and thus worth sharing with others.

Professor Domhoff was the keynote presenter at the Annual Meeting of the California Sociological Association held in Sacramento on November 18, 2017. Given the historical trends which have occurred since 1969 where the Vietnam War saw the unnecessary and tragic perishing of millions of innocent Vietnamese and near sixty thousand Americans, it appears the distinctly powerful messages of political sociologists like Professor Domhoff have yet to fully reach mass consciousness, evidenced by similar tragedies reported as current events as of late-2019.

Without going into a lengthy description of today’s Vietnam-like tragedies occurring around the Earth, and keeping in mind the internet rules against being overly weighted down with information which busy people tend to reject in favor of rapid-fire shorts bursts of news/analysis, we would point out some of the situations around the world related to the continuum of academic thought in the Political Sociology field by Professor Domhoff from 1969-today.

The Power Elite are involved in dramatically and rapidly evolving societal demand for positive change actions in what seems – to the stunned deer-in-headlights observers as is this writer – like every nation on the planet. As more people become aware of the “rubber meets the road” facts and details surrounding neoliberalism, the focus of 50-years of academic work by Political Sociologist G. William Domhoff, the Elite are becoming faced with more and more strenuous challenges to their attempts at maintaining world-record imbalanced status quo power.

The familiar phrase “wars and rumors of wars” remains the primary source of stress for many who’ve made the sometimes regrettable choice of pursuing greater awareness of world affairs, particularly the kind of awareness suppressed, deformed or omitted by corrupt business magnates, government officials and Elite corporate media titans.

The #1 challenge for peace activists around the Earth is building walls sufficiently strong enough to prevent any more outbreaks of war, and to end already ongoing deadly conflicts, whether it is in the Middle East, South America, Africa, or elsewhere.

Perhaps in the future – when civilization has long since abolished criminally insane, suicidal, unnecessary, catastrophic war on the human family – Professor Domhoff himself along with his like-minded colleagues, or later on by future generations, will find ultimate relief in finding his/their decades of effort have turned out successful.

We’ll stop and let vital knowledge foundation-building academic messenger Professor G. William Domhoff speak for himself.

Peace.

Global Peace and Security: World Leaders Betray the Canons of Truth, Wisdom and Humanity

Today’s Political World at a Glance

6 Jul 2019 – Global politics is overwhelmingly becoming robotic when question of safeguard of the mankind comes up. Global political leaders are fast becoming actors on stage – issuing abstract statements of outrage and phony sense of grief when thousands and millions of human lives are constantly bombarded by the weapons they manufacture and sell to crush the human soul and to support the war economies. The UNO and its Secretary General and the UN Security Council – all are just debating clubs engaged in time killing exercises to deceive the mankind and to betray the ideals of the Charter to “safeguard the humanity from the scourge of wars.” Many top UN officials are paid employees with no sense of accountability to the global community.

The reality of man-made catastrophic conflicts enhanced by national interests and war-led economies are ingrained in the war racketeering plans across the globe. The 21st century knowledge-based informed mankind is the net victim of the global political monsters. Millions of human beings are forcibly displaced, evicted by plans and charcoaled by forbidden chemical weapons across the Middle East yet; most global leaders do nothing to prevent the aggressive catastrophes except statements of fake ‘outrage’ reaction as if others were inhuman casualties. We are witnessing abnormal political culture of human bloodbath as being normal.

The global community – a divided and dispersed mankind is unable to challenge the war racketeers and global hangmen who claim to be political leaders. They are egoistic professionals with big mouth without wisdom and full of self-engineered false democratic clichés, contradictions, distortions and misrepresentation of the rights of common citizens in modern democracies. These are frightening trends for the present and future generations to survive. Most of the economically influential actors occupy the political platforms – either through backdoor conspiracies or entrenched political intrigues.

They profess to be intelligent and outspoken for the rights of the people but in reality are offensive to truth and listening to voices of reason and honesty. How do we call for a balancing act in a world terribly imbalanced by nationalism, political and economic ideologies of supremacy and shallow imaginations and practices of human equality, human rights, peace and harmony amongst all the diverse segments of the living humanity?

We cannot abandon the search for a better and more rational world of systematic mechanism to protect the peace and security of the mankind on this One Planet. We, the People, We the Humanity and conscientious thinkers and scholars must wake-up to the immense sophisticated and technologically advanced challenges to disconnect us from the Nature of Things and to dehumanize us by global scenarios of ethnicities, nationalism, state borders and cultural superiorities and ruling class distinctions. William Godwin (Enquiry Concerning Political Justice and Its Influence on Modern Moral and Happiness, 1793), said it right:

Men of genius must rise up….to analyse the machine of society to demonstrate how the parts are connected together… and point out the defects and remedy. It is thus only that important reforms can be produced…He who is a friend to general happiness will neglect no chance of producing in his pupil or his child, one of the long-looked for saviours of the human race.

Do We, the People, Realize to Be One Humanity on One Earth?

We are One Humanity on One Planet and we have a right to be here in peace and harmony, not in conflicts, not collaborators to kill the mankind and destruction of the human environment and habitats. This will be contrary to our Nature and inhuman if we cannot come to terms with our peaceful co-existence, identity and responsibility being the chief guardians of the living planet in a living Universe.  We, the humanity lives on a balanced Planet – Earth located at a measured distance from the Sun and Moon and other stars.

God created the Universe and blessed it with all functionalities and provisions for life-sustaining factors since millions and billions of years. Do you realize if there was no water, no oxygen or hydrogen and other gases or sun light to support all the living creations – what would have been the shape and form of life on Earth?

Could we the human kind count the blessings of God to maintain life for millions and billions of years on this planet?  All things exist in a mathematical order, whether we recognize it or deny it. So strange, we know all about other material things and scientific – technological developments but we are ignorant and arrogant to learn about our own origin and existence on a living planet. We are born from mother’s tummy – one and the same all over the globe – One Humanity.

Hopi Message In 2019: Thomas Banyacya (1909-1999).

by Jerry Alatalo

hile some might consider late Hopi leader Thomas Banyacya a simple man unworthy of attention due to an impression of his being plain-spoken, uneducated or non-academic, without a university Ph.D. or similar designation of intellectual achievement, yet those with ears and heart to understand will resonate deeply with his powerful, relevant-in-2019 message.

People weren’t given the opportunity to hear from Thomas Banyacya since he passed into the spirit world in 1999, but one might imagine what he’d have said about the events of September 11, 2001 – the most important unsolved mass murder false flag crime in all of human history – and the wars which followed, ongoing today in May 2019 nearly 18 years later, and falsely associated with 9/11 under the equally deceptive term “war on terror”.

What would he be saying in May 2019 about Venezuela, Iran, Syria, Julian Assange, Chelsea Manning, etc. – and the real risks of a dangerous new nuclear arms race on Earth?

Many will at first glance dismiss Hopi prophecy, as depicted in raw form as art on rock mountain walls located on the Hopi reservation, as unrealistic and perhaps even bordering on science fiction “woo-woo”. However, those same people might think twice after precisely sensing the complete honesty in Thomas Banyacya’s speaking voice.

Is Hopi prophecy the real thing showing potential future catastrophic events on Earth, pointing to increasingly dire planetary circumstances landing humanity at existential decision making inevitability regards spiritual paths, and therefore important for people to give their full and serious attention? What if the Hopi prophecies are entirely accurate … and what if the visionaries who drew the prophetic art were predicting events in the future culminating now, at May 2019?

Author Thomas E. Mails wrote a best seller and possibly the definitive book on the subject: “The Hopi Survival Kit”.

Recalling an event described to biographical author Doug Boyd by Native American medicine man Rolling Thunder in Boyd’s now classic book “Rolling Thunder” might add texture to the Hopi prophecy subject with respect to so-called – controversial for some – “supernatural” abilities.

Rolling Thunder went with the friend of a young Native American man unjustly held in a U.S. Army prison for refusing to comply with military draft laws, traveling to the location where prison officials thought nobody knew the young man was being held. Rolling Thunder and the imprisoned young man’s friend went to the prison gate and demanded the young man’s release, when they were (lied to) told “That person is not here.”

Rolling Thunder in his way knew the young man was inside the prison, and proceeded to tell the prison guard at the entrance: “We know he’s inside, and we demand you hand him over.”

The guards once again denied the young man was imprisoned there. To make a long story short, Rolling Thunder and the prisoner’s young friend went to a nearby river where Rolling Thunder started a fire and conducted a ceremony. They returned to the prison entrance where Rolling Thunder told the guards, “We know he’s inside. We are giving you one last chance to release him, or things are going to start flying around here.”

The guards again denied the presence of the prisoner, whereupon off in the distance a funnel cloud started forming, growing and moving toward the prison. As the tornado created by Rolling Thunder in ceremony got closer, things indeed started flying and crashing around the prison complex with tremendous force and wind speeds.

At that point, prison guards went and retrieved the young prisoner, and without speaking released him from the prison to the custody of Rolling Thunder. The tornado subsided, then disappeared. Believe it or not … but Doug Boyd’s book contains many other similarly astonishing examples of the years-to-develop abilities of Rolling Thunder.

Our stance is that Hopi prophecy is a true phenomenon which humanity ignores at its peril.

While the Hopi elder’s voice is unfortunately no longer available for human communication exchanges, it is without doubt that if Thomas Banyacya were present today that voice would still be honest, plain-spoken, direct and transmitting overwhelming spiritual power.

“The first peace, which is most important, is that which is found within the souls of men when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all its powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.”

(Film description: Hopi elder Thomas Banyacya (1909-1999) was selected as spokesman for traditional leaders in 1948, after atom bombs triggered Hopi awareness that the prophecized “gourd full of ashes” had finally appeared. We worked with Thomas from 1977 through 1999 and were fortunate to film him at Chaco Canyon, in Washington DC, and at sacred migration sites around the Four Corners area. His humor, good spirit and wisdom will be long remembered. In June 2011, Santa Clara elder José Lucero and Onondaga Chief Oren Lyons organized a memorial gathering to celebrate Thomas at the foot of Navajo Mountains and they asked us to put together a short film remembrance of Thomas. This film is the result, published here for the first time in September 2017. )
