… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

“… The Fall of Many - Seen It Yet?

You are going to see more and more personal secrets being revealed about persons in high places of popularity or government. It will seem like an epidemic of non-integrity! But what is happening is exactly what we have been teaching. The new energy has light that will expose the darkness of things that are not commensurate with integrity. They have always been there, and they were kept from being seen by many who keep secrets in the dark. Seen the change yet?

In order to get to a more stable future, you will have to go through gyrations of dark and light. What this means is that the dark is going to be revealed and push back at you. It will eventually lose. We told you this. That's what you're here for is to help those around you who don't see an escape from the past. They didn't get their nuclear war, but everything else is going into the dumper anyway. … “

Priest who witnessed Iraqi detention could face prosecution

DPP asked to consider charge in Baha Mousa case as lawyers claim church is failing to take action

The director of public prosecutions has been asked to consider bringing criminal charges against a Roman Catholic priest who was found to have witnessed the shocking condition of a group of prisoners in Iraq, which included Baha Mousa, who was tortured to death, but did nothing to raise the alarm.

Lawyers for Mousa's family and the other prisoners are urging the DPP to consider whether Father Peter Madden should be prosecuted for misconduct in public office or even for breaching the Geneva Conventions.

Madden was serving as padre with the rank of captain with the 1st Battalion, the Queen's Lancashire Regiment in Basra in September 2003. He has since left the army and is a parish priest in Warwick.

He faced scathing criticism from an official inquiry after he repeatedly maintained that he was unable to recall whether he had entered the detention facility where Mousa and nine other men were being tortured.

Several soldiers told the inquiry that Madden had visited the detention centre on a number of occasions.

Private Gareth Aspinall said he decided not to make any complaint about the abuse because the padre had made no objections. "When people like that have come in, of high authority, you start to think, well, if I was going to report it, who – is anyone bothered?"

Public Interest Lawyers said it had submitted the complaint to the DPP after the church failed to take any action.

Phil Shiner, a lawyer at the Birmingham-based firm, said: "This Catholic priest crossed the road when he saw what was happening to Baha and the other men. If he had intervened Baha would still be alive – it is as simple as that.

"He must now face criminal investigation as the archbishop of Birmingham has swatted away my formal complaint telling me that it is a private matter between him and Madden. That is an outrageous response which is a blatant attempt to sweep this matter under the carpet".

The archdiocese of Birmingham said in a statement that the archbishop, the Most Reverend Bernard Longley, had interviewed Madden and discussed the matter with the senior Roman Catholic chaplain in the British military, and had "found no grounds for taking further action in relation to Madden's current responsibilities as a parish priest in the Archdiocese of Birmingham".

Madden told the Observer that the inquiry had been mistaken and his "conscience is clear".

The inquiry heard from several soldiers who said they saw Madden in the detention facility where Mousa and the other men were tortured over a 36-hour period. After Mousa died he was found to have suffered 93 separate injuries.

The inquiry also heard that a number of soldiers approached him after Mousa's death to discuss their concerns.

When Madden gave evidence under oath, he was asked 12 times whether he had visited the detention facility, replying each time that he "wouldn't be able to say" or that he had "no clear recollection".

The inquiry chairman, Sir William Gage, described Madden as "a poor witness" whose evidence had been inconsistent. He concluded that the priest had visited the temporary detention facility, or TDF, on the second day of the prisoners' ordeal, in the hours before Mousa died,.

"If find it inconceivable that when Madden went into the TDF he could not have observed what others had seen and described, namely the appallingly squalid conditions in the TDF and the obvious distress of the Detainees. Having reached this conclusion, it is inevitable that Madden, in my opinion, ought either to have intervened there and then or, more realistically, straight away reported it up the chain of command.

"It is a matter of regret that he did not find the courage to do either."

A statement issued on Madden's behalf described Gage's findings as "erroneous" and said the priest had given honest answers to the questions that had been put to him. He was "absolutely certain that he did not see the abuse described in the report" and would have intervened and reported the matter if he had.

Just one man, Donald Payne, a former corporal, has been held to account for the death of Mousa, being jailed for a year and dismissed from the army after he pleaded guilty to a charge of inhuman treatment. Six others were cleared after a court martial.

A number of soldiers were suspended following the publication of Sir William's report last September.

General Sir Peter Wall, head of the army, said the force's provost martial will investigate whether anyone else should be disciplined in the light of fresh evidence unearthed by the inquiry.
