“Trump’s Smallest Asset” Painting by Illma Gore, Title by TheSwillBucket

“Created by artist Illma Gore, the 11-by-14 inch painting will be on display at the Maddox Gallery. Gallery director James Nicholls called it a “contentious and interesting piece” that offends some but amuses others.”

Apparently Trump has said that people would be impressed by the size of his penis. I admit it. I am impressed.

Danger in Cell Phone La La Land — Swill Bucket Delicacies

By Shawn Hamilton Lately I’ve encountered a surprising number of people in public who seemed to be talking to themselves. Often when this happens, I assume these folks are talking to me, so I respond in some way as polite custom dictates, only to be ignored–or to receive a disapproving glance for having invaded […]

‘Rethinking Conspiracy’ Foreign Policy Journal

The terms “conspiracy theorist” and “conspiracy nut” are used frequently to discredit a perceived adversary using emotional rather than logical appeals. It’s important for the sake of true argument that we define the term “conspiracy” and use it appropriately, not as an ad hominem attack on someone whose point of view we don’t share.

According to my Webster’s Unabridged Dictionary, the word “conspiracy” derives from the Latin “conspirare,” which means literally “to breathe together” in the sense of agreeing to commit a crime. The primary definition is “planning and acting together secretly, especially for a harmful or unlawful purpose, such as murder or treason.”

It was in this sense that Mark Twain astutely observed, “A conspiracy is nothing but a secret agreement of a number of men for the pursuance of policies which they dare not admit in public.”

‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ Turns 40- The Sleuth Journal

 Is this Eugene Brading’s ‘X-marked hatband’? (‘A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File’ (p. 5) In 1975 an extraordinary document surfaced called “A Skeleton Key to the Gemstone File.” Distributed hand-to-hand long before the advent of computer-based social media, the 22-page typed copy I received in 1976 had been reproduced so many times that several words and letters were unclear or missing. Evidently a fervent underground effort had been underway to get this information out. So I’ve kept a copy of the Skeleton Key around for the last four decades taking notes on developments, and recent history, so far, has increased my confidence in the document’s veracity.

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

illum

Here’s one that should make JREF* devotees froth at the mouth! We at The Swill Bucket generally keep comments closed to avoid cognitive infiltrators–and sesquipedalian misanthropes–but we thought it would be compassionate (even humorous) to give JREF advocates a chance to vent and hurl crude epithets at the authors –or people and ideas associated with them–in JREFrs’ distinct style of rabid verbal attack they somehow equate with intellectual discourse. However, I expect your typical JREF adherent won’t make it past the first paragraph anyway.
* (James Randi Educational Forum: http://web.randi.org/)

Study Suggests Conspiracy Theorists Are More Positive & Reasonable Compared To Conventional Thinkers

“A case study examining online commenting trends was performed by psychologists Michael J. Wood and Karen M. Douglas of the University of Kent that revealed so called 「conspiracy theorists」 are actually more reasonable & sensible than those who are considered conventionalists.

Not that long ago, practically anyone who thought outside of the box, questioned the official stories, or did any type of investigation into certain subjects was labeled a ‘conspiracy theorist.’ In fact, many of these people, including the majority of the writers here at Collective Evolution, are still considered conspiracy theorists by many even though the goal is simply to examine or verify the truth of something.”

VETERAN PLEADS: DO NOT BLINDLY SACRIFICE YOUR LIFE FOR YOUR COUNTRY! Author Publishes WWII Pilot Father’s Legacy and Warning

SACRAMENTO, CA, USA, October 19, 2014 /EINPresswire.com/ — SACRAMENTO, 19 October, 2014—The belief that it’s noble to support the nation’s military regardless of circumstances will perhaps always prevail. It’s a seductive patriotic ideal, but over the course of our nation’s history, the US military has been increasingly used to protect the interests of the rich and powerful rather than liberty and justice for all. Journalist Shawn Hamilton has written his new book, Be All You Can Be, as a wake-up call to the nation, using his WWII veteran father’s story as the revelry bugle.

A person who is willing to sacrifice his life ‘for his country’ is merely a dupe in the profit game of the military-industrial complex.”

— Major Ralph E.   Hamilton, 1976

Homeless in Sacramento: Interview with Darryl Jefferson

(Click to play)

Every Saturday morning a few good folks bring food to feed the homeless in Sacramento. One informal group was started several years ago by a woman from Taiwan named Lily who arrived in the US with no education, no ability to speak English, and little money. Life was very hard for her, but Lily eventually became a licensed accupressure therapist and became financially stable, She never forgot how it felt to be poor, however, and started feeding the homeless because of her compassion for people in tough circumstances. I extracted the recording above from an interview I conducted with Darryl Jefferson during the breakfast one Saturday morning. The piece originally aired on KPFA Radio.

A Kriegie’s Prayer –Ralph Hamilton

Oh, God, I ask of you in humble prayer,

As I lie in torment far from home,

Keep safe my loving family over there;

Make lighter theirs—this burden

Which they bear.

I ask not why this plan for war was lain,

Nor question your divine authority,

But couldn’t you have had the flak refrain

That last time I went down to

Strafe a train?

Oh, God, just slightly overflow thy cup,

And speed me from this vermin-prison’s bed.

Please, God, release me from

This land of Krupp

Before these God-damned bedbugs eat me up!

Note: Ralph wrote this under a dim night light, on toilet paper in the German prison camp at Moosburg. He said the bedbugs had chewed his wrists, neck, and ankles to a “painful mass of itching misery” and forced him from his bunk.

“Be All You Can Be”

Released on March 24th, 2014 through Friesen Press:  Be All You Can Be

Be All You Can Be cover

“There is something sad about a person who blindly sacrifices his life ‘for his country,’ for he is unaware of the real issues. If a person can grasp the truth about war, it can’t help but color his thinking on such issues as draft dodging. The name draft dodger suggests the evasion of a just debt or obligation. In reality, a draft dodger is either a person who rejects military service on religious or moral grounds—or plainly doesn’t want to allow himself to be killed. Any of those reasons should be good enough, and I don’t think that he should be persecuted or prosecuted.

A person who is willing to sacrifice his life ‘for his country’ is merely a dupe in the profit game of the military-industrial complex. A man who has the courage to stand up against such twisted idealism and refuse to be sacrificed for profiteers is no coward. My opinion of the draft dodger differs from the opinion of many of my peers, but then, my generation is probably one of the biggest collections of fools on record.”

“Rethinking Conspiracy” by Shawn Hamilton

The terms “conspiracy theorist” and “conspiracy nut” are used frequently to discredit a perceived adversary using emotional rather than logical appeals. It’s important for the sake of true argument that we define the term “conspiracy” and use it appropriately, not as an ad hominem attack on someone whose point of view we don’t share.

It was in this sense that Mark Twain astutely observed, “A conspiracy is nothing but a secret agreement of a number of men for the pursuance of policies which they dare not admit in public.”

Conspiracies are common. If they weren’t, police stations would not need conspiracy units to investigate and prosecute crimes such as “conspiracy to import cocaine” or any other collusion on the part of two or more people to subvert the law.

Unfortunately, too many people smugly chide “conspiracy theories” as if they imagine that such a derisive characterization reflects superior intellect—whether or not they know anything about the issue in question. It’s a pitiful display of ego inflation and intellectual dishonesty, yet it appears to be a common approach preferred by those either short on information and critical thinking skills or harboring a hidden agenda.

Kasskaran: Sunken Land of the Hopi Ancestors

If you have any questions or comments regarding “Kasskara: Sunken Land of the Hopi Ancestors” please send to kasskaran@protonmail.ch  Facebook:

https://www.facebook.com/ashmanw.hilton

In a subsequent account I will continue with White Bear’s story, introducing the word Inioma ,  a term White Bear uses to describe a certain “quality” of spaceflight. Perhaps readers can help solve the mystery of Inioma.  What does he mean when he says one does not “fall off”?

White Bear on “flying shields” (spacecraft): 

“‘Because of this form we also call it a ‘flying shield’. I will tell you what it resembles; If one divides a calabash (a type of gourd) in two, one obtains a form with the aspect of a saucer. If one assembles two of these, one obtains the shape of the vessel, which they used formerly to go to these planets. When one sits inside, one can move the craft in all the directions and one does not fall off regardless of speed. Because of this form we call it Inioma,’  he said.”

EI_Seven_MoaiIn a subsequent story White Bear will explain how these seven “moai” on  Easter Island relate to Kasskara.

Yonaguni_Monument_DSC02867_(12737281133)The Japanese island of Yonaguni, located about a hundred kilometers east of Taiwan, seems to support White Bear’s narrative. Although White Bear didn’t specifically mention Yonaguni, which only came to light after White Bear died in the 1990s, he did say that Kasskara extended to areas now part of the island chain called Japan.

Cliff PalaceAnazazi ruins, Mesa Verde, Colorado USA

These are the so-called “cliff dwellings” of the Anazazi–Hopi relatives–at Mesa Verde, Colorado (currently a national park). To my ear and sensibilities, the term “cliff dwelling” carries within it the notion that these people were holed up, like wasps in a mud nest, since they were so primitive. That wasn’t my impression.  After initial astonishment at the sheer size and location of the site, I realized that when new, and pit fires were warming the stone inside apartments and kivas, it would have been a comfortable,  safe and stunningly beautiful place to live. It’s more impressive than any of the crappy apartment complexes I’ve ever lived in, it was rent-free, and consider the view!

White Bear, Henry Denny and I visited Mesa Verde together in 1977. We overheard a National Park Service ranger or guide earnestly telling people this and that about the ruins. White Bear scoffed (to us, jokingly and politely) and with a slight wave of his hand told us what the guide said was just wrong!

Hopi_Keyhole Door

I recall it had to do with the “keyhole door” shape characteristic of Anasazi architecture (top left is clear example). The guide was confidently telling a large group of tourists that the reason the Anasazi used that shape was to make it easier for the endemically arthritic Anasazi to enter and exit buildings. Considering that two of the keyhole doors shown above are too high for that purpose, White Bear’s claim that they represent “The Nine Worlds” sounds more plausible.

I’ve always appreciated that serendipitous glimpse into the fallibility of “authority.”

Peace on Earth and Good Will!

Shawn Hamilton
