Update April 21, 2017

Among some of the more practical tracts of text pertaining to Druidry and Paganism, I have been adding some  quotes and poetry and a few meditations and chants and prayers to my Crane Book of Wisdom.

Among them are “The Peace of Wild Things” by Wendell Berry, “Nature Meditation on Amergin”, “I Have” a Navajo chant, “Earth Teach Me” an Ute prayer.

Some more: “Calling My Name” by Jim Beer, “The Task of a Poet” by Dejan Stojanovic, “Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep” by Mary Elizabeth Frye, “Advice From A Tree” by Ilan Shamir, “The Druid Vow of Friendship” which I found on Pinterest.

Some more good stuff: “The Dream of Now” by William Stafford, “Stopping by Woods On a Snowy Evening” and “The Road Not Taken”by Robert Frost,, and “An English Wood” by Robert Graves, Brehon Law and Trees, “Do not be dismayed” by L.R. Knost, “Let Earth be healed”, and another chant called simply The Awen chant.

Truth Against The World #13

    So. A brief recap. During the election Hillary Rodham Clinton, who dropped the Rodham from her name for the [presidential] campaign. And she said or did something to get Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to drop out and support her instead. Why do I say this?  Because he had the momentum to beat her. He was better liked. He constantly beat both Hillary & Donald Trump in donations.
 
    When Sen. Sanders backed Fmr. Secretary of State Clinton, he suspended his campaign. Of note, and its important to remember this, he did not release his delegates. Once he backed her, he gave her the power and momentum to win the popular vote. Trump won the Electoral College. But we must remember that Hillary Rodham Clinton, because of Sen. Bernie Sanders, won the popular vote by three million votes.
 
    The presidential inauguration was on January 20, 2017. Since then, there has been rumors (read: suppressed stories) of Russian interference in the election to benefit Trump’s win of the election. And then we have the White House staff. Sean Spicer, Press Secretary; Reince Priebus, Chief of Staff; Michael Flynn, National Security Advisor; Steve Bannon, White House Chief Strategist. Why list these names? And the Russian interference? Because they are notches in America’s timeline that is not just affecting our own citizens, but affecting the opinions of the citizens of the world around us. Our international allies. And our international enemies as well.
 
    And now… And now Hillary Rodham Clinton is trying to make inroads that she might try again in 2020. In 2008 she went against and lost to then-Senator Barack Obama who won the election. This past election Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign was hounded and plagued by the Republican party efforts to drag down Hillary Rodham Clinton’s campaign over the Benghazi incident. While most Republicans have announced the whole thing was a farce, there are still repercussions.
 
    I know, repercussions. But what repercussions? The fact that Hillary is now damaged goods. As long as Senator and Senate Majority Leader Mitchell “Mitch” McConnell is still active in the Senate, Hillary will never see the Oval Office from behind the Resolute Desk. Benghazi was the bullet that left a wound that will not heal in Hillary Rodham Clinton’s political career.
 
    Hillary Rodham Clinton no longer has a viable political career as a presidential contender. She has to know this.
 
    And why has no written about the possibility that Donald J. Trump, President of the United States could be a Manchurian Candidate?
