As a parent of four, I have always marveled at the potential my children represented. My youngest is now 17, but as a young parent, I thought of how I might best influence their successes and the enjoyment of their lives. My childhood successes and enjoyments sustained me through some difficult times and frightful events that were hidden in my future. So as an adult, I reflect on my childhood to draw on experiences that might help guide me to be a better parent. I realize that many of my youthful experiences might seem ordinary, but at the time had significant long-term impacts and benefits for me personally. Some of these experiences included my immersion in music, art and literature. I can never forget these wonderful times or how they have improved the enjoyment of my life ever since.

So when I posted a beautiful picture of the ‘Three Graces’ (below) on Facebook, I was pleasantly surprised to read Marty Lawrence’s response below my picture. Marty put words to my enjoyment of this great work through a simple, short poem; bringing me instantly back to some of the best memories of my cherished childhood. This is the power of poetry and the power of art.

The Three Graces

1831, by Jean-Jacques Pradier - Musée du Louvre, Paris

1831, by Jean-Jacques Pradier – Musée du Louvre, Paris

The three graces said thus
Come sing, dance with us.
By our beauty be charmed.
We bring joy, never harm.
Mirth, splendor, good cheer
Abound when we’re near.
Come sing, dance with us,
Come sing, dance with us.

–Marty Lawrence from ‘The Queens of Song’ © 2005

Now to continue this story, my wife was a full-time mom and all our children are mostly grown; but I still remember those very special moments when I would sing, play the guitar and read to them at bedtime.  These were very special times for me and for my kids.    I believe this had a positive impact on their lives.  I know it did on mine.   In today’s economy, where both parents work full-time, it can be difficult to find the time, energy and resources to spend time with our children on a regular basis. If major gaps creep into this quality time, we can grow apart, and lose that special connection and influence; so I was happy to discover Marty had put her considerable talents to good use: Marty put together some excellent resources that she originally created for her God Child, Willow.  Marty drew upon her creative background to assemble some fun tools parents can use now with their children.   I’m told that these resources have had a great impact on Willow and so I present some of them here for your enjoyment and consideration.

Tragedy and Hope 101: Got Quigley?

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | June 11, 2016

Get your know on… There are two kinds of people in this world; those who know Quigley and those who don’t and it is very easy to tell the difference.

Hopefully this short / simple video will get more people interested in Quigley’s excellent work.
Tragedy and Hope 101: Got Quigley?

Published on May 30, 2016
Tragedy and Hope 101 provides readers an introduction to the groundbreaking research of Carroll Quigley. Professor Quigley not only spent decades researching and writing about those who secretly control the machinery of our “representative governments,” he was permitted to examine their secret papers. He was invited in, but he ultimately betrayed their trust when he exposed their plans and their methods.

Important interview with Dr. Paul Craig Roberts by Dr. Julian Charles
(Published on Saturday, 28 May 2016 21:24)

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

Dr. Paul Craig Roberts

from The Mind Renewed

“Remain” or “Leave”? What does the UK’s EU Referendum—scheduled 23rd June—really amount to? Is it simply the opportunity for UK citizens to decide if Britain should stay in the European Union? Or is it something of greater significance, with broader and more serious implications? And just what is this thing called the EU anyway?

Joining us, once again, to discuss these questions is Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, former US Assistant Secretary to the Treasury for Ecomonic Policy, who explains the EU’s beginnings as a project of the CIA, and assesses its current role as as an anti-democratic tool of corporate control. Whether or not a majority “leave” vote will actually lead to Brexit, Dr. Roberts argues that a decisive rejection of EU membership by UK citizens could embolden other EU member states to follow suit, thus precipitating the break-up of NATO, and in turn, bringing an end to Washington’s crazy designs for a New World Order.

The White Helmets

The White Helmets

The White Helmets:  Tools of the State Department, Pentagon and NATO; using the human rights ruse for perception management to further their geopolitical agenda in Syria. Time to become informed on what Syria’s “first responder” group, The White Helmets are actually doing in Syria; why they are being funded by the UK Foreign Office, USAID, Soros and various US-backed NGOs; and discover their deep ties to Al-Nusra Front, (al-Qaeda in Syria) and other US-Proxy terrorist groups.

Published on May 20, 2016: In this UK Column News special, Mike Robinson speaks to Vanessa Beeley about Syria’s “first responder” group, the White Helmets who are being pushed forward for nomination for a Nobel Peace Prize. Do they deserve it?

Cecil Rhodes

Cecil Rhodes, founder of De Beers and the world we live in today.

Cecil Rhodes, founder of De Beers and the world we live in today.

Cecil Rhodes (1853 – 1902), the founder of De Beers, is one of the most significant figures in world history, though many outside of Africa have never heard of this man and those who have, know only of  his time in Africa and his diamonds. The hidden history of Cecil’s real power and influence on world affairs was no accident. His vast fortune, his organizations of ‘rings within rings’ and his last will and testament created much of the unseen network that controls the world we live in today (Round Table, RIIA, CFR, The Milner Group, etc.);  waiting to be exposed sometime later by Professor Carroll Quigley in ‘The Anglo-American Establishment‘ and ‘Tragedy and Hope‘. Below, you will find some interesting collateral information on Cecil’s De Beers Empire from PBS and others, though the complete story is difficult to tell in one podcast. Time to get your know on. Please take the time to enjoy Richard Grove’s podcast below:  DIAMONDS: The Jewel of Denial / Outgrowing Stockholm Syndrome

NOTE: The Anglo-American Establishment: From Rhodes to Cliveden (written in 1949 and published posthumously in 1981) by Quigley.  In 1966, Quigley published a one-volume history of the twentieth century, titled Tragedy and Hope. – Wikipedia

Cruz

by DAVID BROWN | CLEARNFO.com | May 01, 2016

Ted Cruz

Ted Cruz

I really get why many people like Ted Cruz. They believe that he is a strict constitutionalist and that he will stand up to the establishment. He did after all take over the Senate floor for more than 21 hours to speak about the need to defund Obamacare, when other Republicans like John Cornyn voted to fully fund Obamacare with a cloture vote out of sight of their constituents.  We all loved Ted for this bold move and we thought that we finally had someone to speak our voice, but what we didn’t fully appreciate is that other professional politicians saw this rightfully as grandstanding signifying nothing but self-serving promotional theater.  As we dig deeper into Ted’s words vs his actions we discover that much of what Ted does is self-promotion, the facts and the constitution be damned.

Natural Born Citizen

First, it is abundantly clear to any strict interpretation of the constitution that Ted is not and cannot be a natural born citizen.  Sure, you can point to this or that constitutional scholar or opinion maker who can make a reasoned argument that he is natural-born by their interpretation.  I can point to just as many on the other side, but it is abundantly clear that Ted was born in Canada, not the USA and that his father was not a US Citizen.  The crux seems to depend on your belief in the power of the legislature to confer natural-born status or the US Constitution, and of course if you want Ted to be president.

 

Supported giving Obama Fast Track Authority

Ted Cruz first supported Fast Track which would allow Obama (Globalist) to bypass the constitutional treaty approval requirement of 2/3rd senate vote. He even wrote an op-ed supporting this: “We strongly urge our colleagues in Congress to vote for trade-promotion authority,” Cruz stated, along with co-author Rep. Paul Ryan (Globalist), R-Wis., in a Wall Street Journal (Globalist) op-ed on April 21.

This Trade Promotion Authority, also called fast-track would allow this treaty now called an agreement to be negotiated in secret by Obama, dumped on the Senate floor with no time to read, debate or change, and passed with a simple up or down vote of only 51% to pass not the 2/3rds required by the US Constitution. This TPP treaty (masquerading as an agreement) BTW would end US Sovereignty and place this country and our constitution under the control of international corporations (Globalism). Next, Cruz does a 180 on this decision… “Cruz’s criticism of fast-track comes as a surprise, considering his public praise of the bill only two months prior.”

How could a constitutionalist like Ted ever even consider giving Obama this unconstitutional power in the first place, much less get in bed with a Globalist like Paul Ryan?

 

Voted to extend the  Patriot Act

Where was Ted Cruz on the Audit the Fed vote? Answer: Missing in Action, nowhere to be found. However, Ted had no such problem when it came to reauthorizing the 100% Unconstitutional and and rights-destroying Patriot Act which is an anathema to anyone who values the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

 

Deep ties to the Bush Crime Family

Neil Bush (Globalist), Jeb’s brother, joined Ted Cruz’s finance team on March 8th. Jeb Bush (Globalist) endorses Ted Cruz for Republican nomination March 22nd.

From the Daily Caller: “The Bush-Cruz connection is clear. Ted was George W.’s brain when he ran for president. A top policy adviser, Ted maneuvered for Solicitor General in Bush World but settled for a plum at the Federal Trade Commission. Ted’s a Bush man with deep ties to the political and financial establishment.  Ted and wife Heidi brag about being the first “Bush marriage” – they met as Bush staffers. Cruz was an adviser on legal affairs while Heidi was an adviser on economic policy and eventually director for the Western Hemisphere on the National Security Council under Condoleezza Rice. Condi helped give us the phony war in Iraq. Heidi then went to the Bush U.S. Trade Representative as a top deputy to U.S. Trade Rep. Robert Zoellick, who wired Heidi’s membership in the Council on Foreign Relations and job at Goldman Sachs. The bailed-out bank then loaned Cruz $1 million secretly to finance his Senate race. Cruz would also borrow an undisclosed $1 million loan from Citicorp.”
