    The Crab Mentality and Why Humans Do This (2:14 minutes)


    If you take a group of crabs and put them in a barrel or bucket something very interesting happens. Now individually on their own, each one of these crabs can clawed their way out out and go off back into the water. However if even one of these crabs tries to find its way out, the rest of the crabs will gang up and start tugging it down.

    Now if this crab still persists, the other crabs will gang up and break its arms. And at that point if it still continues to persist, the crabs will kill him. They literally will gang up and murder this other crab.

    The message from me to all of you is “please do not have a crab mentality”.
    transcript continued…
    It's called the crab mentality but unfortunately as human beings possess a very similar trait. If you try to better your circumstances in your life and you are in this barrel let's say as a metaphor. This environment might be a workplace or a community or just happen to be the circumstances you are unfortunately in right now. And you’re surrounded with people who are doing the same thing that you are. And then you want to go out and follow your passion and your purpose in your belief. The rest of these people or crabs might try pulling you back.

    Because the saying essentially is, ”If I can have it, neither can you. Now physically they might not break your arms but they might break your spirit. They might not kill you, but they might kill your dreams.

    What you need to do is you need to get out of this environment and better your life. Because we all as human beings are meant for greater bigger and better things. And we all must follow our passion or purpose or believe our dreams, our desires, our inner calling.

    The people around you they have their own passions, beliefs and purposes. And they might have shared it with you or they might not have. But when they do, what I encourage you to do is do not be the crab that pulls them down, and lets them know that ”If I can have it, neither can you. If you support the people around you and support their passions, dreams and beliefs, they will inevitably support you.

    The message from me to all of you is “please do not have a crab mentality”.

    Oh my. Gives a new slant on seeing people or rather a single person I have in mind. She would do things that would undermine or diminish what I offered. She would say she was a crab and walked sideways. That is why she did things the way she did albeit to my detriment. It did not matter to her. I would hear how it was my fault or I was mirroring some sort of weakness on my part by speaking up about my discomfort. It came to a final point when I almost literally had my legs crushed by a truck. I was blamed for something I had no control of and I decided in a nano second not to be harmed. That was the last time I have spoken to her. The crab information you shared is an interesting comparison to human behaviour. Thank you.

    Dr. Mark Skidmore’s Daughter Composed and Sings: Missing Money (2:41)

    #212020
    Way to go, Maria!



    * Info found on Greg Hunter vid: Dr. Mark Skidmore - Financial Crisis Might Be Best Thing
    Solari.com - Missing Money: $21 Trillion dollars is missing from the US government. That is $65,000 per person - as much as the national debt!
    What's going on? Where is the money? How could this happen? How much has really gone missing? What would happen if a corporation failed to pass an audit like this? Or a taxpayer?

    This means the Fed and their member banks are transacting government money outside the law. So are the corporate contractors that run the payment systems. So are the Wall Street firms who are selling government securities without full disclosure. Would your banks continue to handle your bank account if you behaved like this? Would your investors continue to buy your securities if you behaved like this? Would your accountant be silent?

    This is the reason that there is such a strong push to change or tear up the US Constitution. This is why members of the establishment say it is "old," "outdated!" This is why there is such a push for gun control. Don't buy it! We can use the Constitution to get our money and our government back. It is time to enforce the US Constitution.

    The Solari Report has been covering the missing money since 2000 when Catherine Austin Fitts began to to warn Americans and global investors about mortgage fraud at the US Department of Housing and Development (HUD), the engineering of the housing bubble that lead to trillions more dollars in bailouts and funds missing from the US government starting in fiscal 1998.

    Preparing for the first big snow storm. A one-two punch from a 2 1/2 day storm.
    Snow then sleet and rain, back to the heavy kind of snow.

    Snow gear, shovel and ice melt salt at the ready.

    RE: “They Live” sunglasses & Non-player Character

    The “what if characters in video games were actually living people” premise is now almost 40 years old, bridging Tron, Wreck-It Ralph, Ready Player One (and, for a really deep cut, Automan). It gets in Free Guy, in which Ryan Reynolds is a non-player character in an open-world, Grand Theft Auto-type video game who sees the truth with a pair of They Live sunglasses and starts fighting back.

    I buried a crystal under a bush by my deck stairs about five years ago as part of an end of an era ceremony. This morning I caught it out of the corner of my eye while shoveling a new batch of snow. It was under the same bush clear as day. I had buried it about 3-4 inches in the soil and recovered it with the layers of stones used for drainage.

    A week or so ago, I remembered the crystal and thought it probably was too extreme an action to take. Then I forgot about it. I’m glad the old friend has come back for a stay.

    Christmas Past - fun memories

    Christmas past was a lot of fun years ago when we had large family gatherings, with young children. The festivities started Christmas eve with a large dinner and almost no presents under the Christmas tree. After dinner Santa Claus telephoned, instructing all of us to exit the big house and crowd into the adjacent small cabin. Santa had said "Do not return to the big house too soon or I will gone in a *flash* without leaving presents."

    With the children in the cabin, my sister and co-conspirator turned on the cabin interior light switch. A tape recorder played in the attic. The children heard Santa on the roof, talking with Rudolf. They discussed if the children had been bad or good. (Earlier, I had real intel from my sister.) The recording included sound effects of reindeer hoofs on a metal roof. With the recording over, the children were encouraged to gather by the window and watch for Santa Claus. From behind the cabin, in a really good Santa outfit, I slowly moved past the cabin window with a sack full of presents.

    While the young children were distracted, my son quickly moved unobserved to place many presents under the tree in the big house.

    Sister and co-conspirator Lynda encouraged the children to disobey Santa's warning about waiting. The children, with big hopes of seeing Santa, moved slowly under cover of darkness, across the yard to the big house.

    With a flash camera I waited and watched from an upstairs window. The setup was complete. As the children slowly moved across the yard, the camera flashed. Panic replaced stealth as the children ran to the house. Much to their relief, many presents were found under the tree.

    The same to you, Gracy May.

    Here’s a recycled Christmas message from last year. (Shhh) The 2nd Christmas-y 2019 winter storm photo is where I live.

    And today? I’ve got my fingers crossed that the power lines don’t come down in this ice storm that began over 14 hours ago with still more to go. A strange and predictably, unpredictable winter. (again)

    I was unaware of the death of CAF mother. Thanks onawah for posting the video.

    A snippet of the Catherine Austin Fitts and Daniel Liszt, Dark Journalist conversation and also from solari.com: “Meditations at the Crossroads,” by Catherine Austin Fitts @ 1:10:12. (video below)
    “…there are two mysteries that I wanted two deaths that I wanted to solve. Who killed Forrestal and why? And who killed my mother and why? It took the whole process of the litigation and coming through that and all the research to come to a point where I felt like okay you know I think I have the answer…
    snip
    “…I would whack them on something that they cared about. One of the things I discovered pretty early on nobody cared about me and my litigation. So I couldn't whack him back on the litigation. I had to whack him back on something that the general population cared about. But one point they did a particularly bad whack and I said okay that's it. And I wrote “Meditations at the Crossroads,” which is about my mother's death. Though that was my whack back, I’m still waiting on my father. I’ve got that one written.”

    Honor thy Father and thy Mother
    
— The Fourth Commandment

    By Catherine Austin Fitts
    [Note from CAF: I published this article ten years ago – on August 25, 2004. My goal was to use the story of my mother’s death to explain why it is so important that we stop focusing on the immediate corruption torturing us individually and bring transparency to the real governance system on planet earth – that is the unifying challenge that we all share. This is where real positive change can emerge.]
    She leaned over the banister to say hello and goodbye that sunny February morning. My father being in Chicago for a medical conference, I was the last member of the family to see her alive. I was the first member of the family to arrive the next day as she lay dead on the roof of her house in West Philadelphia.

    There was a large crowd outside along with news media trucks. The house inside was overrun by police. If there was evidence to be had at a crime scene, the police did a thorough job of trampling it. Like a dog that needs to leave its scent behind, “the boys” love a good inside joke. Just to make sure their power did not go unappreciated, a bottle of Southern Comfort was pulled out on the kitchen counter when I arrived at her death scene. I moved it back where it belonged. The informal assessment was suicide. Of course, I knew different. So did my father. He was devastated.

    My mother in her lifetime cared tremendously about her community. Active in civic affairs, she started a school, edited a medical bulletin and performed an endless series of services to help her neighbors and the University community.

    As the narcotics trafficking and government fraud grew in our neighborhood, so did my mother’s anger. Before she raised her children, she earned her economics graduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania and was an economist at the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia. She was able to connect the dots between the rich profits flowing to the powers that be from illegal activities and the degradation of family, environment and culture. She kept trying to communicate with my father and grandfather that something was terribly, urgently wrong. They dismissed her.

    My father and grandfather had learned early and painfully that the safety and support of their wives and children required the flow of money and positions that only “the boys” could and would provide. They both worked tirelessly to do good works – to teach, to save lives, to build up the institutions in their lives. Accomplishing their dreams and missions required working with “the boys.”

    Over time, they became accepting of “how the system works,” enjoyed the insider perks and were too ignorant of financial equity flows and the big picture to understand the direction of the game. They lived in a separate all-male universe where the flow of benefits and inside information funded our family’s day to day needs.

    A week before the Alaska oil discovery was announced, my father rushed home to liquidate all available assets to buy Atlantic Richfield stock. He told me later that one oil industry tip paid for all three children’s college education – something that a lifetime of work had not yet funded. According to one written report, my grandfather’s leaving the Rockefeller Foundation related to promoting philosophies not pleasing to one of the Dulles brothers. What I remember is how much he felt the hurt of it.

    When did my mother arrive at the crossroads? When did she realize that sacred tribal secrets and national security secrets had deteriorated into something else? I never knew. The battleground was not in the world of ideas and the spoken word – it was never open.

    Toward the end of her life, my mother’s growing rage ran the risk of burping into our overt conversations. In December 1974, the New York Times — her daily newspaper — started to illuminate illegal domestic activities of the US intelligence community. In Congress, the Church Committee hearings in Congress in 1975 continued to make first page news in the New York Times – as then Central Intelligence Agency Director William Colby cooperated with Congress.

    The Church Committee hearings made clear the systematic nature of government funded covert activities. The hearings confirmed that what my mother experienced in her own community were part of an intentional, well funded and growing corruption machinery. The hearings illuminated COINTELPRO, the enforcement effort to manipulate political activities by citizens. The hearings touched on the role of the universities and intellectual community and mind control research and experiments. Information about the systemic nature of what was happening nationwide and globally told a story about the forces destroying her family and her community while using military and intelligence operations and new technology to engineer more wealth and power for the rich and powerful.

    The Ford Administration responded to the Times allegations with the Rockefeller Commission lead by Vice President Nelson Rockefeller —the former governor of New York and heir to one of the richest fortunes in America –which pursued its own investigation — not so much of the truth, rather how to make sure the deepest truths never saw the light of day. The Rockefeller Commission report was issued in June 1975.

    After two failed assassination attempts on his life in September of 1975, President Ford fired the truth telling William Colby. On the urging of Henry Kissinger, Secretary of State (and until recently head of the National Security Council and always the Rockefeller man), Ford nominated George H. W. Bush to be the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency before Christmas in 1975. It was said Bush would try to reverse the “damage” done by Colby with the Church Committee.

    At the time of the announcement and confirmation process of Bush’s appointment, my mother went wild with anger. To this day, I wonder what it was that she said or did or threatened to do that may have caused her death. To this day, I wonder if she learned the hard way that commissions in such instances are created for damage control — which includes identifying which documents need to be shredded and which witnesses need to be turned, hired to a new job far away, sent on a long sabbatical or killed.

    My mother had many reasons to hate the likes of Rockefeller, Bush and “the boys” — and they had reason to fear the secrets that she could tell. But it was not just the people who governed the game who had reason to fear. By 1976, many people had gone along with the flow of dirty money for many years.

    The scholars at the University of Pennsylvania — at the business, law, engineering, veterinary and medical schools —had made it a practice to never speculate about — let alone admit — the connections between the various financial flows around them. The silence was golden on the relationship between the revenues required to fund their expensive academic enclave and the rich flow of profits from narcotics trafficking and mortgage fraud that was slowly liquidating the human and financial capital in the Afro-American communities around them.

    The most obvious of sources and uses of funds within a small geographic area were obfuscated by an endless maze of financing engineering — government contracts and grants, foundation donations, endowment shenanigans. For all the genius in the University community, simple addition was not in their intellectual portfolio and the financial flows of places were not in their curriculum.

    It’s hard to know what may have been the straw that broke the camel’s back. All I know is Bush’s nomination was confirmed on January 30, 1976. While my father was in Chicago for a medical conference, my mother’s body was found on the roof of her home within a week, in early February. The Church Committee shut down a month or so later in March.

    The attendance at the funeral overwhelmed the Quaker meeting house in downtown Philadelphia. One after another of our friends and neighbors stood to tell of my mother’s secret kindnesses and generosity. A rent paid, a child helped through college, medical treatment arranged, a nursery school created and funded. There was a deep sadness that day as our family and a people grieved for an intelligent loving woman and for what the violence of her death meant we had become.

    Three thousand families lost loved ones on September 11, 2001. Contrary to popular opinion, there was nothing new about covert operations and power politics killing or failing to protect innocent Americans. On that day there were millions of families living in America that had already lost loved ones and livelihood to black budget operations. And there were many more families worldwide. Whether domestic or global, the list of specific causes of the death of innocent civilians is a long one — hard narcotics trafficking, financial fraud, military vaccines, false imprisonment, nuclear fallout, chemicals , suppression of medical technologies, environmental damage, war on drugs enforcement and more.

    It is worth meditating on what would happen if all of our families realized that it was not planes, drugs, poisons, vaccines or warfare that killed our mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, daughters, or sons. It was people who did the killing – often with only a spoken or written word. It was people who failed to protect. It was people who let it happen on purpose. It was people who did not hold other people accountable.

    Those of us who have lost loved ones to America’s black budget operations may be rich or we may be poor. We may be black, brown, yellow or white. We may be citizens of many nations. We may live in the East or the West or in the North or the South. We may be Christian, Buddhist, Muslim or Jew. We may be conservative or liberal in our views. We may divide up our philosophies in many ways based on a whole series of intentionally controversial and divisive issues. Yet we all share an intimate connection. The people responsible for the death of our loved ones and the failure to hold them accountable are a surprisingly small number of people.

    The true intimacy of our connection will be revealed – and real solutions will begin — when we ask and answer two simple questions: Who did this? Who let this happen on purpose?
