… 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. … “

Dissident US diplomats protest Trump travel ban

Washington (AFP) - US diplomats added their voices Monday to a chorus of protest against President Donald Trump's decision to suspend refugee arrivals and ban visitors from seven Muslim countries.

Dissident officials are drafting a memo to submit through the US State Department's "dissent channel," in a dramatic first public sign of bureaucratic resistance to Trump's policy.

"I think they should either get with the program or they can go," Trump's White House spokesman Sean Spicer told reporters, scathingly dismissing the rumblings of discontent.

The channel has been used since the Vietnam War era to allow staff to speak out, but observers said it was extraordinary to see such a move so early in the life of an administration.

Trump's choice for secretary of state, former ExxonMobil chief Rex Tillerson, has not yet been confirmed by the Senate and a swath of senior State Department positions are unfilled.

The department's acting spokesman, Mark Toner, said the dissent memo has yet to be delivered.

"We are aware of a dissent channel message regarding the Executive Order titled 'Protecting the Nation from Foreign Terrorist Entry into the United States'," he said.

Candid views

Toner described the channel as a "longstanding official vehicle for State Department employees to convey alternative views and perspectives on policy issues."

"It allows State employees to express divergent policy views candidly and privately to senior leadership," he said.

Trump signed the executive order on Friday, triggering mass protests at US airports, as arriving refugees and travellers from seven mainly Muslim countries were turned away.

Officials would not release a copy of the memo, nor say how many diplomats and State Department civil servants have signed, but angry staff had already leaked a draft to media.

According to the respected national security blog "Lawfare," which published a draft copy, "hundreds of foreign service officers are planning to be party to the dissent memo."

In the draft, the signatories warn that Trump's executive order -- issued a week after he was sworn in, with little consultation -- will not make America safer from extremists.

Instead, they warn, the policy "runs counter to core American values" and will only to boost jihadist propaganda while offending vital Muslim allies in the fight against terror.

Under Trump's order, a refugee program that was on course to admit 110,000 of the world's most vulnerable people this year is suspended for 120 days and the target slashed to 50,000.

Refugee arrivals from war-torn Syria are halted indefinitely and travellers -- whether visitors or would-be migrants -- from seven mainly Muslim countries are barred for 90 days.

After this period, a new form of what Trump has called "extreme vetting" will still limit arrivals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Yemen and perhaps beyond.

"When the 220 million citizens of these countries lose the opportunity to travel to the US overnight, hostility to the United States will grow," the draft memo warns.

Washington will lose influence over young visitors who could be future leaders in the Islamic world, "including those for whom this may be a tipping point towards radicalization."

Spicer dismissed the concerns as "blown out of all proportion" and argued that the majority of American voters back the newly elected president's efforts to ensure their safety.

According to the draft, nationals from the targeted countries do not just use US visas for vacations but for life-saving medical treatment and contact with relatives.

Better than this

In scathing language, the diplomats call Trump's call for visas only to be issued to travellers who probably pose no threat as a "high, vague and nebulous bar."

"Banning travelers from these seven countries calls back some of the worst times in our history," they warn, citing the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II.

And they insisted there are other ways to boost US security without resorting to draconian bans on entire nationalities.

"We do not need to alienate entire societies to stay safe," they argue. "We are better than this ban."

Trump has defiantly stood by both the ban and his decision to introduce it with little or no consultation with Congress or US agencies, leaving long-time Washington insiders stunned.
