Tony Ortega – The Underground Bunker

Mark my words.  Tony Ortega and his unnamed sources will rue this day when they declared Monique Rathbun as fair game and subjected her to intentional libel.

Texas Tropics – a novel

I  just self-published my first novel.  It is a genre blender: a mystery adventure with a lot of mysticism, philosophy, religion and history mixed in. It can be obtained through Amazon books at the following link: Texas Tropics.  I am focusing on such writing these days and have created another site for those interested in that endeavor (as opposed to subject matter normally expected on this site), markcrathbun.wordpress.com.

When Distraction Becomes Destructive

In 2001 Germany’s largest domestic spy network was riveted on scientology.  For years they had been treating scientology as top priority for infiltration and elimination.  The prime locus for attention was scientology’s greatest German stronghold, Hamburg.

Remarkably, the following facts were given next to no attention over the next fourteen years of media obsession with terrorism.  The 9/11 attacks in America were planned, trained-for, and staged from Hamburg Germany;  all the while Germany’s law enforcement intelligence apparatus was chasing scientology.

From 2009 through 2011, the US Department of Justice assigned some of its most experienced and decorated agents to make a case against scientology and its leader David Miscavige.  During that time period, and since, the Department of Justice failed to even attempt to prosecute a single one of the billionaires whose greed created the international recession we are still feeling the effects of today.  A handful of criminals destroyed 40% of the wealth of planet Earth – and profited handsomely in the bargain – and continue doing business at the same old stand.  If you’ve bought the line that jailing Wall Street gangsters would only constitute vengeance or wreak greater financial disaster, think again.  Once their lucrative housing bubble burst, they turned to speculating on food commodities.  Notice what’s been happening with your grocery bills over the past seven years? Ever wonder why?

In November 2015 Belgium’s justice department is making hay out of its attempted prosecution of scientology.  While the trial proceeds, again only after the fact European law enforcement is frantically scouring Belgium since it has been exposed as a critical terrorist planning and staging ground in the wake of the 13 November 2015 Paris atrocities.

How to trek the Great Middle Path

 

Suggestions on how to trek the Great Middle Path:

Seek balance of intellect and intuition

Harmonize reason and compassion

Make concert of heart and mind

Modulate the need to do or say with the abilities to observe, to share and to let be

Spice the syntheses with rhythm

Recognize the oft-intruding, peculiar notion that you have arrived and let it pass

Repeat as indicated, striving toward ever more penetrating and radiating degrees and forms of balance, harmony, concert, modulation, spice, synthesis and rhythm.

Purpose

 

Purpose of life might be reducible to the following simplicity:

We serve that which and those whom we care about in the best manner we see fit.

Life becomes most complicated by the arrogant who attempt to dictate to others whom, that which, and how they must serve.

Religion

Perhaps the greatest appeal of religion is its affected ecstasy activities.  Those can provide exhilarating peak experiences. Religion’s greatest benefit might be the order that it brings to its adherents’ lives. Oftentimes however that order and ecstasy only maintain longevity with forfeiture of one’s intellect and sometimes even conscience.  How seriously one regards his religion is a good indicator of how far down that road he has travelled.  When this apparent cycle goes unchecked religion can begin to dictate and even stifle lives.
