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.

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.

President Tulsi Gabbard?: “There Is No Force More Powerful Than Love.”

(Editorial comment: Hawaii’s elected representative to Congress Tulsi Gabbard’s February 2, 2019 address announcing her candidacy for President of the United States in 2020 was remarkable in many ways, but what separated her most from Donald Trump and others who’ve publicly conveyed their intentions of running was one statement by Ms. Gabbard: “There is no force more powerful than love.”

If one were to imagine Donald Trump, Elizabeth Warren, Kamala Harris, Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton, Joe Biden etc. being asked by journalists the following question: “How do you feel about the idea, suggested by Ms. Gabbard, that there is no more powerful force than love?”, then one might better understand why the just-born Tulsi Gabbard campaign and movement has immense potential for success.

In the history of United States presidential politics, unless mistaken (and we don’t believe so), such a reference by a candidate to high-consciousness spiritual wisdom implying the feasibility of real, transformation-producing, global spiritual evolution as Tulsi Gabbard did during her speech is without precedent, – in other words, even when taking into consideration the massive compilation of speeches … new.

Tulsi Gabbard has simply, boldly and courageously raised the bar higher than ever before, arguably where the U.S. presidential debate bar should always have been, rightly, from the start. Donald Trump and the other candidates’ advisers and public relations experts will find it very difficult, if not impossible, to refute and/or overpower the essential, morality-based, profoundly compelling message just sent from Hawaii. End of editorial comment)

Aloha.

Thank you so much.

Growing up here in Hawaii, I loved swimming, surfing, and having fun in this paradise we are lucky to call home.

But I gradually realized that I was actually happiest when I was doing things for other people, doing things to protect our water, oceans, and beaches.

This was a different kind of happiness than what I experienced when just thinking of myself. It was a deeper happiness, that stayed with me.

I knew that no matter what path I chose in life, I wanted service to be the foundation.

I am proud to serve our country as a soldier.  I’m a Major in the Army National Guard where I’ve served for the last 15 years.

I’m so grateful to have had the opportunity to serve the people of Hawaii and our country in so many ways over the years –, in the state house where I was elected at 21, serving 100,000 people as a member of the Honolulu City Council, and now for over 6 years in Congress.

Thank you for your trust and your aloha.

I’m a Major in the Army National Guard, where I’ve served for the last 15 years. a Major in the National Guard and proud to serve as a soldier, a Major in the National Guard, proud to serve our country as a soldier.  I enlisted nearly 15 years ago in the Army National Guard, and deployed twice to the Middle East.

Our nation was founded on the principle that our government should be of the people, by the people, and for the people — where all people are treated equally, and with respect, in these UNITED states of America.
But today that vision seems like a far off dream.

Hatred and divisiveness have cast a dark shadow across our country.

We are being torn apart by powerful, self-serving politicians and greedy corporations, inciting hatred, fear, and conflict between us because of the color of our skin, the way we worship, or our political party.

This corruption of spirit driven by greed and selfishness is eroding the very fabric of our society …  and democracy itself.

This is not who we are, America.

The best of our nation is exemplified by our nation’s veterans who embody what it means to put service above self.  Who have sacrificed their own personal interests out of a greater love for our people and our country.

Love is not just a feeling.  It is a powerful force that drives us to act, to put service above self.

Our men and women in uniform, generation after generation, motivated by love for one another and for our country have been  willing to sacrifice  everything … for us.

They don’t  raise their hand and volunteer to serve  just to fight for one religion but not another; people of one race but not another; people of one political party but not another.

No.

When  we raise our right hand and volunteer to serve, we set aside our own interests — to serve our country and to fight for ALL Americans.

We serve as one —  Indivisible and unbreakable, united by  this bond of  love for  each other and love for our country.

It is this principle of putting service above self, that is at the heart of every soldier, every service member.

And it is in this spirit that today I announce my candidacy for President of the United States of America.

I will bring a soldier’s principles to the White House — restoring the values of dignity, honor and respect to the presidency. And above all, love for our people and love of country.

I ask you to join me, in this spirit of putting service before self, to stand up against the forces of greed and corruption.

The road ahead will not be easy.

The battle will be tough, the obstacles great.

But I know that when we stand united, by our love for our people and our country, there is no obstacle we cannot overcome, there is no battle we cannot win.

John F. Kennedy once said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but what you can do for your country.” 

We must heed his call to action today, at this critical time in our history.

We must stand up, and fight for the soul of our country.

Father Dave Smith On Israel-Palestine, Christian Zionism: “Politics And Religion Mixed Up A Lot.”

By Jerry Alatalo

Australian Father Dave Smith at a recent “Warrior Weekend” – part of the “Boxing For Life” program, using boxing to bring people of different faiths and cultures together through sport.

ather Dave Smith of Australia was one of  the men and woman from around the Earth who received invitations to speak at the recent New Horizons Conference in Iran – the 6th Annual convening of the event in May 2018.

Among the group of others who participated were (from the U.S.): Alison Weir (author, founder of If Americans Knew), retired Central Intelligence Agency counter-intelligence expert Philip Giraldi, former State Department official Michael Maloof, military psychological operations expert and author of “Shell Game” (Swiss banks terrorist financing) Scott Bennett, and attorney/author Michael Springmann (Lawyers’ Committee for 9/11 Inquiry).

Father Dave Smith’s talk  focused on the erroneous theological foundations of Christian Zionism, the distinctive branch of the faith finding 50-70 million adherents in the United States alone. The Christian block is very influential (negatively, if what Father Dave Smith suggests is correct) when it comes to U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East and elsewhere around the Earth, particularly with regard to Israel-Palestine.

If one accepts the central thrust of Father Dave Smith’s thesis, the most worrisome aspect of Christian Zionists’ erroneous beliefs set is holding the idea that being a Christian requires giving full support to Israel – and accepting the “prophecy” that the return of Jesus Christ is dependent on Israel’s militarily conquering its neighbors or enemies. In other words, Christian Zionists are to believe (and do believe) that wars fought by Israel, including those fought by the United States for or joined with Israel, are absolute/solid “signs” – ignorant of the potential huge losses of human lives, the injuries, dislocation and destruction associated with military violence – of the imminent return of Jesus Christ.

This theologically incorrect stance is actually the one held firmly by millions of U.S. Christian Zionists (readers might have family members or friends in the religious category) – in fact to the point where many are joyously anticipating the “Armageddon” of Revelations in the Bible or major war in the Middle East, which supposedly then triggers the prophecy-fulfilling supernatural spiritual event of Christ’s return, the 2nd Coming, and/or “The Rapture”.

Americans might find it important to know that former Director of the Central Intelligence Agency and now Secretary of State under Donald Trump – Mike Pompeo – believes in “The Rapture”. Moreover, Father Dave Smith wonders out loud in his talk whether Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor John Bolton is a Christian Zionist. The selection of Bolton by Trump did not require the approval/vote or confirmation of the U.S. Congress.

The Rapture has come into the consciousness of America’s estimated 50-70 million Christian Zionists through the reading of the controversial (many Christian leaders criticize and consider it sheer blasphemy) Scofield Bible, published in 1909 and including extensive end notes or interpretive commentary by editor Scofield, which portray biblical scriptures/verses in an extremely Israel-centric light.

Perhaps some men or women journalists can ask Mr. Pompeo and Mr. Bolton if their bibles are the Scofield version. It might be very important to know the answer, and especially so, given the current highly tense global situation.

A few hours of research into the Scofield Bible, its historical facts and the theological controversy surrounding it are enough for one to lean strongly in the direction that millions of Americans who’ve used/read solely the Scofield publication have been sadly fooled about Israel vis-à-vis Christianity. In many instances people professing themselves as Christians have used the Scofield Bible alone … solely that book without exception, for decades and/or generations.

Among America’s more well-known Christian Zionists are Pat Robertson (who ran for president as a Republican, and once publicly called for the political, literal assassination of  Venezuela’s Hugo Chavez), John Hagee and Robert Jeffress (who both spoke in Israel at the U.S. Embassy dedication ceremony, after Donald Trump moved it from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem), Jerry Falwell, Benny Hinn, Hal Lindsey, and many others.

***

Father Dave Smith spoke toward the end of his talk:

“Hence, biblical prophecies … they’re never designed to help shape foreign policy; any more than they’re designed to just satisfy our curiosity about the future. They’re designed to call us back to the commandments. Once we recognize this, I think we can see the fundamental flaw in the logic of Christian Zionism. They claim the biblical prophecies point to the triumph of the modern-state Israel over its neighbors.

“Even if they could be right, that some prophet had predicted this, it wouldn’t mean that either the prophet or the scriptures as a whole endorsed the event, nor would it mean that people should support it, any more than Jeremiah’s dire warnings were intended to garner support for the destruction of Jerusalem. In the Hebrew bible, when the prophet gives dire predictions about the future, his hope is that his warnings will cause his hearers to come back into a relationship of obedience to God – resulting in the prophecy proving false.

“See, the tragedy of Christian Zionism … Is it gets the whole process back to front, urging us to follow the prophecy even if it means breaking the laws of God, breaking the commandments. Prophecy has never been normative. The commandments are normative. The commandments tell us how we have to behave towards God and towards our neighbors. It’s the commandments with which we can base our foreign policy on, – a biblically based foreign policy, which would require of course a focusing on justice.

“As a Sydney Anglican priest I’m privileged to be part of a church tradition that has never been greatly influenced by Zionism. Indeed, I believe that at the Sydney Anglican Synod of 1948, some people did indeed stand up suggesting the creation of Israel was the fulfillment of biblical prophecy.

“It was the principal of our theological seminary who corrected them, saying: ‘No, no … It’s the fulfillment of the 8th commandment – Thou shalt not steal’. And this is the great tragedy of Christian Zionism … That under the guide of faithfulness to biblical prophecy it indeed justified stealing, and murder, and any number of other crimes that are clearly contrary to the commandments of God.

“A genuinely biblical approach to the situation in Israel-Palestine must begin, I believe, not with prophecy, but with the unambiguous command to do justice. A justice that respects the rights of Palestinian people to their land, to life and to liberty.”

Father Dave Smith after declared the ‘winner’ of an exhibition boxing match.

I Come From A “Shit-hole”

A timely message for United States President Donald Trump from El Salvador describes the coming of the True Human Being.

Koyote the Blind

I am not an American.

I was born in the continent known as “America”, yes. But somehow this United States has given itself the name of the entire continent.

Ronald Reagan demoted the rest of this magnificent continent to the mere “Backyard of America.”

That’s when I came here, to the “land of the free,” when Ronald Reagan sent billions of dollars to military dictators so they could use the money to rape, torture, and massacre my people. I didn’t want to come here. Oh, how I hated coming to this land so full of restrictions, prohibitions, and people kept so ignorant of their own history!

Once I came here, almost no one I met knew where my country was. They all assumed I was Mexican. Except for Mexicans. They knew where I was from, and knew they couldn’t trust me because if was from where I was, I had…
