For over a year I have been actively investigating and working on many different activist fronts, including toxic GeoEngineering (chemtrails), mandatory vaccines, homeopathic cancer treatment attacks by government, etc., dealing with many persons and agencies, from my children's school principal and the District to the Governor's office.

As a result there has been a complete refocus on my efforts to inform all of you of all the things that are happening around us, from locally to internationally. This is now reflected on my webpage, where I have added the following sections:

It took me a while, almost five years, but finally my second CDTales of Humanity is now available for distribution, in CD form and download, full album and singles, through sites like iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Jango, etc..

I want to thank everyone that has contributed in any way in both recording this CD and encouraging me to continue. I am very proud of what I have accomplished musically. I think the message also has an important meaning in our lives today.

To sample and purchase any song, click here.

Presently all songs' backing tracks (no vocals) are available for free download on my website CafePeyote.com/music/, bottom section. 

Presently there are no plan to start recording a 3rd CD. Instead, I will be focused on my blogs. There are many important issues that have resulted from my inquiries into clandestine aerial spraying of toxic substances. I will be discussing this issue soon.

Best wishes,

Ricardo

In 2006 my son Ricardo bought me historian and activist Howard Zinn's book "A People's History of the United States," the American story going back to the Mayflower, but told from the perspective of the working class and all its struggles until present days.

Inspired by the book I wrote a song, Howard's Song To The People, and emailed it to Howard for his consideration, simply me and my guitar. He replied:

"Thank you so much for your song. My wife and I listened with pleasure. The lyrics are certainly appropriate. Best wishes."

Now, for my second CD release, we have produced the song and I have done the video. To see "Howard's Song To The People" click here

As a reminder, I will be in concert to release my second cd, Tales Of Humanity, on September 16 at 8:30 PM at The Merrow in the Hillcrest area. Please join me and support this project for peace and justice.

Enjoy!

As I prepare for the release of my second CD, Tales of Humanity, I have accomplished a goal I always had of creating a video for each one of my songs. Today I finished my entire first CD, Café Peyote, in video form and it has been uploaded to a YouTube playlist.

I invite you to view and enjoy my Two New Releases, which completed CD1- Click on the links below to view: 

YOU DECIDE: Part 1: Good and Bad - Part 2: No Tolerance - Part 3: If Only I Could Draw. I dedicate this video to my niece Luisa Barajas, Lubaboop, for the artwork in CD1, as well as CD2, on which she is working on right now. 

EN MI MENTE SIEMPRE ESTANWhen I wrote this song it was the first time that I wrote the lyrics prior to having the music. I had decided to write a song about my life. To my surprise, I wrote the song in about 10 minutes, and while it started by talking about my childhood it soon was talking about my mother, followed by my oldest son, Ricardo Octavio. As always, Luis and Paco Elorza were able to capture the tender and emotional feeling of this song with their musical interpretation. My music is like a page on a coloring book, all I do is the outline, Paco and Luis are the color, the fuel in my songs. My deepest gratitude to them. 

To see the complete Cafe Peyote CD1 video playlist click here.

Remember to keep you agenda open for the evening of Wednesday September 16 @ 8:00 when I will release CD2 in a live concert (location: The Merrow, Hillcrest). Please join me and invite your friends.

Thank you for your continuing support.

Enjoy!

Dear friends,

I am happy to announce the release of my second CD, "Tales of Humanity", after about four years of development. Final mastering and release of CD2 should be within the next couple of months. I am very happy with the outcome. Thank you for all your positive comments as I was sharing these songs individually with you throughout this time.

Special thanks go to Luis and Paco Elorza, for their excellent musicianship, production savvy and their friendship. I also want to thank Edmundo Arroyo for his saxophone contribution on Obsessions of the Mind. The video of this song got over 300,000 hits on YouTube.

To celebrate the CD2 release I will be playing here in San Diego at "The Merrow" on September 16 at 8:30 PM. It is located in the Hillcrest area. Here is their link: www.TheMerrow.com. There will be a $5 cover charge.

Please join me then, bring your friends and enjoy the evening. To view any of my videos go to Cafe Peyote Videos.

Recently I have been writing several blogs/articles regarding MMS/CDS and the potential health benefits that these products provide.

In the blogs I mentioned how the pharma industry, through its enforcement arm, the government, in particular the CDC and FDA, has attacked those that promote and sell such products. Well, here is the latest for your reading pleasure or disgust: 

Daniel Smith, from Spokane, Washington, had a company that was selling MMS. In the last 5 years he has been consistently harassed by the FDA for selling MMS. At one point he sent the FDA a letter asking that they tell him if it was illegal to sell MMS and if so he would stop selling it. He never heard back from the FDA, so he continued to sell it. In the process he created an organization under which all persons wanting to buy MMS had to register as a member of an organization and community that believed that they had the God given/natural right to take any medication/substance that they believed would be good for their health, to no avail.

The state of California is in the process of trying to pass Senate Bill 277 that will make it mandatory for all children in high school and below to be vaccinated, whether the parents want to vaccinate their children or not, for personal and religious reasons. It has moved from the CA Senate Education Committee, where it passed by a 7-2 vote, to the Senate Judiciary Committee, who will be reviewing it this week.

I am against this bill and sent a letter of opposition to Governor Brown and all Judiciary Committee members. I hope you help in this fight. The letter contains my arguments why this bill should not pass. Here is the letter: 

In August of 2009 Jennifer Carney from the San Diego Troubadour magazine wrote a fabulous review on my first cd, "Cafe Peyote," for which I am very grateful. Link here.

It was obvious from her comments that she took the time to carefully listen to the music and lyrics and understood what the Cafe Peyote project is all about - It is my message (correct of incorrect) about our lives, wrapped in a musical format. She wrote:

"He comes across as a man who stands by his ideals and makes the music to match."

There was one statement that caught my attention:

"The songs do speak to all that lovely hippie stuff: the search for deeper meaning, lauding of the inward journey, eschewing materialism, etc." 

What a great way to define what the word "hippie" embodies. These ideals from the 60's do live on in many of us that grew in that period or following it.

In the late 90's a gentlemen by the name of Jim Humble, an electronic technician and non-degreed research engineer in the aerospace industry from the U.S., travelled to Africa to use a gold recovery system he developed. While there in the middle of the jungle some of his aids contracted what appeared to be malaria and got very sick. Being one day away from any community, he sent some of his staff that where healthy to get medication from the nearest town.

Meanwhile Humble, seeing the terrible sickness and pain his aides were going through, offered them a solution he had for purifying water. Within 4 hours the previously sick aids were laughing, talking about how sick they were just four hours earlier. See Project Camelot Interviews Jim Humble).

The solution that Humble used is known worldwide by the acronym given by Humble, MMS. Because of many different reasons to long to explain here, the acronym has had different meanings, but the most acceptable one is Master Mineral Solution.

“We are on the verge of a global transformation. All we need is the right major crisis and the nations will accept The New World Order.”

In December, 2014 I attended a debate between representatives from the local republican "Tea Party" and the "Occupy Wallstreet" movement. I was hopeful that I would see at least some common ground through which to build a coalition between the two groups in such an important time in the United States and the world's history, but unfortunately that was not the case.

Due to several reasons the debate was cut short so I did not have an opportunity to express my thoughts on the comments coming from both sides, so I sent an email to the organizers, moderator and each group's representative, hoping that they can meet again in a more cooperative way. Here is the letter:

What is the most important thing to you? Let me guess, your life and that of your family. The most important thing you need to have a good life is good health. Because of this, today I submitted a petition to the San Diego City Council requesting they investigate chemtrails in our area. The letter follows and is self-explanatory. Someone has to take action locally, might as well be me.

Dear City Council Member,

With the advent of the internet you can now choose a radio station on the net that will play only your particular type of music. These internet services include Pandora and Jango.

I am pleased to announce that Jango.com is now playing my music, just visit their site, type in "Cafe Peyote" and you will hear my songs playing together with other music in its gender, like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, King Crimson, The Beatles, Radiohead, The Who, Jimi Hendrix, the Doors, Eric Clapton, etc.

Visit this internet station to enjoy these great and classical rock songs as you go about your day. 

Today to celebrate the 4th of July I invite you to view my video "The Common Law," which I wrote on a 4th of July several years ago. The lyrics follow.

Today was a wonderful day, I spent it with my family at Aquatica, a water park. I was, in a sense, celebrating the long weekend, an extra day off thanks to the Memorial Day holiday.

Unfortunately, while it is a holiday for many of us, it is a tragic reminder to all of those who have lost loved ones to war of the devastation that such veterans' death has caused in their lives, not to mention the life that the dead soldier will never live. Not to mention being blown to bits by gunfire, dying in an instant or dying after days of agony.

Some join the military out of patriotism, like the football star that joined the force after 9/11; or out of necessity, like black slaves that joined the Civil War who were promised freedom and land. There are also those who joined because of educational opportunities, because of benefits or because they felt this was an opportunity to advance, maybe wanting more discipline in their lives, maybe advancing financially, seeing no other viable options in life due to their education or economic background, particularly in the case of minorities. And then there are those that do it because of aggressiveness (my best example is the son of a friend. His dad told me, "my son wanted to be a sniper since he was a kid, so I supported him" - and the son did become one).

But in all cases, with the exception of the last example, I am sure no one wants to be in the battlefield, killing other people and risking their lives, seeing all the bloodshed, participating in mass indiscriminate massacres against groups of people.

But the worse part of all is:

ARE THEY REALLY SACRIFICING THEMSELVES FOR THE GOOD OF ALL CITIZENS OF THEIR COUNTRY OR ARE THEY ALL JUST DISPOSABLE PAWNS IN THE CHESS GAME OF CORPORATE MASTERS?

 

Today I finished my latest video, Stay With Me, from my first CD, progressing on my goal to make a video for all my songs.

I want to thank my wife Eva for the inspiration for this song, for the joy she has brought to my life and for the opportunity she has given me to express and create my music to the fullest extent.

And to all couples out there, may you always maintain love, happiness and consideration for each other. May you always have music to make love to!

It has been several years since my first music cd, Cafe Peyote, was released. I am now getting ready to finish my second cd, untitled at this time.

As I was reviewing all my videos I realized that I have not made any in Spanish so I set out to do so and today finished and uploaded to YouTube one of the songs from my first album, Ven Aca. I am sharing it with you today hoping that you will view it in the company of your significant other.

On or around 2006 my son Ricardo Octavio bought me Howard Zinn's book "A People's History of the United States." After reading it I summarized the book in the lyrics of my song "Howard's Song."

I emailed the song and lyrics to Mr. Zinn in November of 2006 and he replied "Thank you so much for your song. My wife and I listened with pleasure. The lyrics are certainly appropriate."

This song and video are dedicated to Mr. Zinn for his unwavering contribution to the universal cause of freedom and justice for all human beings, in particular the working class. 

-- May He Rest In Peace - Proudly!

Sometimes the foundation of a song can be very complex and sometime it can be based on a few chords, but developed in a way that makes it sound complete and none-monotonous.

An example of that are some songs by Alanis Morriseette. About 10 years ago I set out to make a song with that singular characteristic, based on two chords, and the result was "We Have To Try," a song about being alone and doing our part to find a partner in life, as life will never be complete without someone with whom to share it with.

Today I finished the video production of the song and am proud to share it with you, my dear friends:

WE HAVE TO TRY

Enjoy!   

It is incredible, we recently celebrated the 50th anniversary of The Beatles coming to America and they are still everywhere: radio, television, internet, news, supermarket background music, T-shirts, posters, their music selling successfully as it did in the height of their career. But why?

To say that we remember The Beatles because they had great music would not only be a musical understatement, it would merely encompass only one aspect of their influence in our lives, then and now. Some examples: Their hair style, their humor and personality, their videos/movies, the uniqueness of each song, their musical style diversity, their fashion, their search for God through alternative eastern religions; they started with songs about loving woman and it evolved into loving humanity, promoting peace and understanding; they made the word "yeah" a common word used in rock and roll; they experimented with drugs like many in the 60's and beyond and told us of such adventures and misfortunes; they were innovators in many aspect in the area of music, recording and effects.

A couple of weeks ago I asked professor Noam Chomsky about a speech he gave, which I saw in YouTube, and I asked him to clarify why United States politicians, like the President, were immune from international prosecution from organizations such as the United Nations for genocide and crimes against humanity (need I tell you for which unjustified military actions I am referring to?), which is what I concluded from the speech. He replied as follows:

"Perhaps you are thinking of the fact that when the World Court
was established in 1946 (under US initiative), the US exempted itself from any
charges under international treaties, specifically the UN and OAS (Organization of American States) Charters.  Since then there has been a long series of enabling resolutions passed by the General Assembly, and international treaties.  The US rarely signs, and then with reservations, as detailed in the sources I mentioned to you (... in the current issue of the leading establishment journal, Foreign Affairs, for example)."

So, the United States doesn't have to play by the rules, but everyone else that signs such international agreements must - to their detriment!

As a Mexican, I can travel the world and everyone will ask me about the "sombrero" and the Margaritas. But don't tell them you are from the United States, else you will make many enemies in places where our country has made shambles of their governments and economies.

You read and hear American news, and we are heroes and liberators. You read and hear news in most other countries, we are ruthless aggressors!

Is this what we want the USA to represent? Personally, is this better for you and me, as "proud Americans?"

This is a strong message, sorry to interrupt your positive metal attitude. Goes with the territory, after all, you are reading Peyote News, a hallucination, in the case of war, of horrendous proportions.

Think about it. Maybe a little?

In 2003 I wrote in my homepage the following:
There are only three types of persons in this world: those that don't believe in a spiritual life, those that do believe out of faith but have never experienced it, and those that believe because they have crossed that boundary.
Destiny was kind enough to bless me by giving me the opportunity to experience the certainty that life after death exists, which I experienced in various ways (see my Blog: Is Man Good Or Bad, footnote 23). However, while these experiences showed me that we continue to live after dying this carnal life and that we can communicate with those that have left this material world (which I will call herein "spirits"), they did not show me more than that: I don't know if there are distinct groups of spirits that join forces of good or evil and fight among themselves and with humans they might influence through spiritual experiences; if there is complete harmony between all these spirits, or if they reincarnate again as human beings, and of course, if they are eternal.
Not having that complete knowledge to understand the reality of spiritual life, all I can do is draw my own reasonable conclusions based on comparisons of historical religious and spiritual books, as well as evidence of experiences lived by myself and others, most of which are not scientifically (humanly, materially -- thus limited) proven.
In 2005 I wrote a song about my brother Pedro Octavio, the oldest in my family, a story of his death (he died at the age of 26 in a car accident), how we miss him and my hope of seeing him again; the song is called "My Brother Is Alive." A few months later I wrote another song, where I try to explain to my loved ones that even if I die, I will be OK and will always be with them. The video and song are titled "Remember When."
To close this loop on my beliefs about life after death, in 2009 I wrote the song "In Heaven" where I venture to explain what I believe happens to us after we die. Finally yesterday, and with the help of Luis and Paco Elorza, we have produced the song and I have recorded the video to summarize such personal beliefs.
Please join me in thinking about humanity's faith after we close our physical eyes, what we call Life. After all, if life is eternal, imagine the possibilities ...
Here is the link: IN HEAVEN
Enjoy, as life apparently will always go on!

After president Bush Jr. took us to a war (massacre) against Iraq that his administration finally admitted did not have the weapons of mass destruction that justified the intervention, to many people it was a relief to see Barak Obama, from the opposite party (really?), come into power. Definitely if I had voted for either of them, I would have chosen Obama, in particular if my decision was based on mere presentation, style and looks (I voted for Sen. Ron Paul, and I am sorry to see you did not!).
Many promises from Obama. A big one? Stop the wars. And where are we now? Will he be remembered as the "Drone" president? How cynical it is that he was awarded the Novel Peace Prize, and he had less than a year in office. From Wikipedia:
"The Norwegian Nobel Committee announced the award on October 9, 2009, citing Obama's promotion of nuclear nonproliferation and a "new climate" in international relations fostered by Obama, especially in reaching out to the Muslim world."

I've always looked at things and have tried to understand them, like everyone else. When it comes to tasks, I always seem to try to find a way to do them in the easiest way possible, could be because I am lazy, but I think it is more because of my tendency to be efficient; to me it is almost like a challenge (even driving, ask my wife!).

When writing my songs, sometimes a short phrase represents a summary of an observation I have made, correctly or incorrectly (after all, I am human of course). 

Sometimes, we simply have to call things by their name, once we identify them. Yes, I may have a friend that has always treated me with great affection, someone I highly respect, but the day I see that person doing something wrong, like abusing a child, aggressively attacking someone, I will never view that person in the same way as I did before, no matter how good they are to me.

The same happens in the political arena, once you open your eyes to certain realities (and unfortunately, often we prefer not to do so) you can never again accept certain media-disseminated truths without putting them through the prisms of your newly found conclusions.

The unfortunate result is that, you now have a view, maybe an ultimate conclusion, that many prefer to ignore, or prefer simply not to be bothered with; but, what else to do, as caring human beings, except to share that thought, hoping that it will be objectively considered by others. That is, if you have the inner spirit that is driving you to do so, hopefully in good faith.

In that spirit I share with you my latest video, WE FAIL TO SEE (click here)

For those of you that are Pink Floyd fans, this will be right up your alley. 

Enjoy!

Dear Friends,

It was approximately 10 years ago that I finally decided to seriously start writing and recording music (with the inspiration of my good friend Bruce C. Duggan, who inspired the name of my project). This was followed by my musical collaboration with Luis and Paco Elorza, recommended by my also good friend Tito Cantu.

Since then, I've played in several places in Tijuana and San Diego, small shows with no consequences. Now the project has landed in fertile grounds. The Occupy Movement is alive and well and has found its voice in the new San Diego radio station KNSJ 89.1 FM (www.KNSJ.com), and they have incorporated my songs into their broadcast. 

 

In life we all want to be happy and successful and there are many religions and philosophies that offer us advise on how to achieve it.

One philosophy that became popular several years ago is called "The Secret." The core of such belief is metaphysical in nature, about harmony with the environment and one's self and the strength of having a positive metal attitude, claiming that if you believe hard enough you can achieve anything in life.

This principle, while it should be applied in our lives to confront every hard situation, cannot change things that the future, and we can call it destiny, has wating for us.

In 2007 I almost was evacuated from my home in Mira Mesa when wildfires spread through several different areas of San Diego County. Homes to the east of use were burning down and we could see the smoke in all directions, and very close by. Any of us could have thought as positive as humanly possible, but we could not have stopped the fire if it came our way.  

I wrote a song then called That's Simply Life as a reminder that although we cannot stop certain things that come our way, like cancer, an industrial accident, a plan crash or a bomb exploding next to us, it is how we accept and approach that situation that will determine how much happiness we can bring to our lives with acceptance of our faith.

Here is the song:  That's Simply Life 
Here is the video: That's Simply Life Video

Enjoy!

 

 

 

Sitting in my playroom, office, studio and garage I've written many articles about my views of the world, from politics, governments and corrupt individuals, to our own individual actions and faults as human beings -- I judge all, but only for the sake of understanding this thing we call our human life.

Some friends tell me, or accuse me, of believing too much in a possible Utopian kind of life, as a solution to our world's problems. They may consider me a dreamer. These friends point out, correctly, what reality is, showing their acceptance of our present lot in life, unchangeable.

It may be that the only way to figure out if we can change the world, reverse our present violent state of affairs and improve everyone's life, in health and economically, is to first determine if man is good or bad in essence, as if we are, or at least the majority of us are, we could obtain change for the common good, and if we are bad, then we will always continue to have the few dominate and exploit the many, and the few will build their army of control using those from the many that will help them build their empires, sharing in the looting. 

To this end, for almost one year now, I have been asking myself that question, what is man's natural tendency, to be good or to be bad? This also took me to the next obvious question, what is good and what is bad?

Here is my conclusion. I invite you to consider my analysis and tell me if you agree.

Is Man Good Or Bad By Nature (click here)

When I was in my teens living in Tijuana, Mexico, I was inspired by a physics professor who recommended two books to me, Chariots of The Gods by Erich von Daniken, about alien visitors from outer space, and The Great Initiates by Eduard Schure, a study of the secret history of religions. These two books forever changed my life. 

As a result, I started reading many other books on spirituality, religions, metaphysics, parapsychology, extraterrestrials and other similar topics. In one of those instances I read a book by Rodolfo Benavides, Dramatic Prophecies of the Great Pyramid. According to the author, within the tunnels and walls of the Cheops pyramid (The Great Pyramid of Giza) the history of mankind is written in hieroglyphs, both past and future.

At this stage, there is no sense in me trying to convince anyone that voting for either Obama or Romney will still be detrimental to all of us, in the things that matter most.

What I do hope is that those who are critical of the opposing party, that they be so only against those party's politicians, not the common man that is just trying to do what he/she believes is best for them and their country. They are not the same, people are looking for freedom and tranquility in their lives, the government is only looking for how to take that freedom away, so what we call the 1% can continue to exploit all of us.

One thing I do urge you to do is VOTE YES ON PROP 37, the Genetically Engineered Foods, Labeling initiative. If you are not familiar with GMO foods and their impact on your health, you need to research it.

Food that appears to be the foods our parents grew up eating are now genetically modified with genes of other species of all types, including changes to make them resistant to certain pesticides, and the research has shown them to cause cancer, mutations and other effects on test animals.

To make matters worse, the FDA (whose heads come from the new Pharma-Agriculural corporations making these products) has labeled these GMOs as similar to their original cousins and therefore do not require any testing to prove they are safe for human consumption.

By voting YES ON PROP 37 you are asking that all foods that contain GMO products, purely or as a combination, be labeled as such, so you will know what you are buying and can decide whether to consume it or not.

Here is just one of many videos you can find in YouTube on the subject:  

Bad Seed - Danger of Genetically Modified Food 

It is not a matter of whether it is dangerous or not, but simply a matter of principle that we have a right to know what we buy. Your choice - may be the disease and mutations of tomorrow.

Please VOTE YES ON PROP 37.

We live in a sexual world, by instinct and by social (commercial) influence. Our passions are aroused by everything we see and hear on TV, movies, music, billboards and magazines. An explosion of sexual desire is offered to us in plentiful servings.

Sex can be the most beautiful thing between a couple, in love or in pleasure, but it can also be an obsession.

I invite you to see my new video:

Obsessions Of The mind

There are three types of persons in this world:

- Those that have experienced the spiritual world
- Those that have not experienced it, but believe in it by faith; and
- Those that do not believe in it (regular visits to church notwithstanding)

 

I have been fortunate to be one of the ones that have experience it, on several occassions (most notably when I met famous clairvoyant Maria Moreno in Hollywood and again in Tijuana, Mexico in the early 70's). You can read her story in the book Ghosts Over Hollywood by Jess Stearns.

"He (Nick Rockefeller) told me eleven months before 9/11 ever happened that there was going to be an event, never told me what the event was going to be ... and out of that event we were going to invade Afghanistan to run pipelines through the Caspian Sea; we were going to invade Iraq, to take over the oil fields, establish a base in the Middle East and make it all part of the New World Order and we'd go after Chavez in Venezuela ...

And I remember he was telling me how ... we're going to see soldiers looking in caves for people in Afghanistan and Pakistan and all these places and there's going to be this war on terror ..."

The Healthcare overhaul debate has become a divisive distraction for all of us and I am not one here to tell you whether the general idea of universal medical coverage and to what extent to provide it is the right or wrong way to address our individual or national medical needs, but I do want to point out some unexpected consequences of such policies.

Recently the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in favor of President Obama's Healthcare Reform Plan (case law) and this will no doubt play a big part in the November presidential election. Whichever way you decide to vote, make sure that who you vote for is not the one that your party chose, the lesser of two evils or the best representing you in healthcare, or abortion, or the one that tells you he will stop the war, or worse, that he will increase our overseas endeavors and will take us in a "democratic" crusade of more violence, death and destruction --

"I spent 33 years and four months in active military service and during that period I spent most of my time as a high class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer, a gangster for capitalism. I helped make Mexico and especially Tampico safe for American oil interests in 1914. I helped make Haiti and Cuba a decent place for the National City Bank boys to collect revenues in. I helped in the raping of half a dozen Central American republics for the benefit of Wall Street. I helped purify Nicaragua for the International Banking House of Brown Brothers in 1902-1912. I brought light to the Dominican Republic for the American sugar interests in 1916. I helped make Honduras right for the American fruit companies in 1903. In China in 1927 I helped see to it that Standard Oil went on its way unmolested. Looking back on it, I might have given Al Capone a few hints. The best he could do was to operate his racket in three districts. I operated on three continents."

"Progress could not have happened without energy. Perpetual Energy will liberate the world"

-- me

I recently saw the compelling documentary The Power Principle and was saddened to see all the suffering that has happened throughout the world in the last century under the color of democratizing other countries. With that in mind I write this blog.

Sometimes, to those that think that government should be changed, that things could be better for everyone at all levels, it may seem like no matter what they do, things will not change, that the keepers of the status quo are just simply too powerful. Maybe it's not worth the time or effort.

Why fight government and corporations? How could things really change without violence? How easy or difficult could it be? I have some ideas and reasons why I believe it is worth it ... and possible. But before I tell you what they are, I want you to view the following short videos on alternative energy and then I'll explain how this plays a part in my conclusion.

I have finished my first film, a musical documentary. It is titled, Freedom 101: Freedom From Us. Below is the link. For those of you that did not have the opportunity to join me in my recent tributes to the Occupy Movement, this movie reflects such concerts and ideals.

Join me through this practical look at human interaction in the 21st century. I am sure you will enjoy it. Best wishes.

FREEDOM 101: FREEDOM FROM US

I was raised in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico. In Mexico, as is well known now, when the political party PRI (Partido Revolucionario Institucional, established 1929) reigned in Mexico, pretty much for 70 years, they won all elections, from the president of the country to the mayors of each town, with a couple of exceptions (Ernesto Ruffo Appel won the first non-PRI state governorship in Baja California in 1989).

In August of 1968, when I was 11 years old, they held state and local elections in Baja California. I remember it well because my oldest brother Pedro Octavio was assigned to a voting booth and he had been making a commotion stating, like many others I heard, that this time it seemed almost sure that the opposing political party PAN (Partido Accion Nacional, established 1939) would win some elections, I believe in particular for mayor of Tijuana (Luis Ernesto Clark was the candidate).

That evening I went to the voting station with my family to pick up my brother and I remember that at around the same time they closed the polling booths the electricity went out throughout the city, and I believe in other areas of the state as well. They were out for a while. As a result of that, it was determined by the state’s electoral commission (in collusion with the federal government) that because there could have been possibilities of fraud that the Tijuana mayoral elections would be canceled; but there was no second round of voting, instead, they installed their own candidate, of the PRI, of course.

It's not easy being human. Each one of us is unique, even if in minor things. When you add that into the equation it is easy to see why we have great friends and at the same time have people we just can stand.

In this human relationship, we are sometimes offended by others, and sometimes, we offend others. And sometimes, when we have made serious mistakes, that we know are wrong and cause harm to ourselves and others, what we have done becomes an offense against ourselves and it hurts and it influences our lives.

If there is something we need so we can enjoy life to the fullest, with ourselves and others, it is to forgive others for what they have done to us, to ask for forgiveness from those we have done harm to, and maybe more importantly, to forgive ourselves for the mistakes we have done.

After all, we are the most important thing in our individual lives and we want to leave in peace and harmony. But always, always try to be a better human being, for everyone's sake.

I just finished producing a song about this, it's called Let's Make Amends. I hope you enjoy it, it's my first bilingual song.

In the conspiracy world there are many theories on certain historical events with many different explanations as to why something happened. To discern between those that may be correct and those that are some sort of exaggeration or a flat out lie is indeed a difficult task and what we ultimately end up believing are our own very personal conclusions, based on facts, or often just on beliefs. Not all conspiracists believe in the same things, they might only agree on some.

Some beliefs are so out-there and risky to mention in conversation with others that often even those that believe it don't mention it because of fear of ridicule, as well as damage to reputation and other financial or legal consequences. Probably the most incredible one to believe is the one that states that not only do the people that presumably control the world want to limit the size of the population of the world, but that they also plan to exterminate millions to reach a controllable number of human beings. Present population fo the world: seven billion.

In my last blog I discussed Chemtrails and how they may be impacting our environment, external and internal and thus affecting our lives. The documentary referenced touched upon several related topics that might explain why this spraying at high altitudes may be taking place around the world. I will explore some of these individually, starting with GMO.

GMO is the acronym for Genetically Modified Organisms, things such as seeds and plants that have been modified from their original state by artificial gene and other manipulation in a lab, and thus are patented food products. Examples include corn, soy beans, tomatoes, etc.

There are a growing number of studies stating that these foods are not only unsafe for consumption and cause disease in animals and humans, but that they are also affecting other crops and the main manufacturers of these products, primarily Monsanto, has not done proper testing before putting them in the market or at least such records are not public.

San Diego, California, what a beautiful city. If there is something I have come to enjoy while living here it is our climate, mostly warm and sunny with beautiful natural sunsets, except recently.

I remember when I was a teenager (you can subtract 40 years from today's date) I used to see contrails in the sky over Imperial Beach. Contrails are "a visible condensation of water droplets or ice crystals from the atmosphere, occurring in the wake of an aircraft" travelling at high altitudes. These would follow the jets maintaining a specific width and would disappear as the jet advanced over the horizon.

But that is not what I have seen for a while. Now what I see are these streaks of unnatural clouds that paint lines in the sky and then expand over large areas.

Yesterday I was listening to a public radio station KPBS news story and the subject was the Republican presidential primaries. The interviewer started by asking what was the status of all the candidates and the response by the reporter went something like this:

Romney not much liked but he has the majority of delegates

Santorum has been winning some states

Gingrich is struggling and should get out

Well that was interesting. What a bunch we have to choose from. Hey, wait a minute, what about Ron Paul? Towards the end of the interview the reporter, in a humorous kind of way, said something like, "and Paul, well I guess he is not giving up." The interviewer laughed as well.

Throughout life we learn things, we compare things, we come to conclusions and we form opinions.

When I say things I mean everything, so there are thousands of different things we have compared to others and seen how they may relate, or not, to each other.

In this busy life of survival and of trying to squeeze every possible second of our life to be (or at least feel) happy, we often set aside all these things that we know or believe to be true. We simply operate in remote control, ignoring some things that distract us from our present interest.

Imagine a  city doctor that develops a nontoxic substance and related treatment that is proven to completely eradicate cancer, even in terminally ill patients that orthodox medical institutions have pronounced are close to dying from this horrible disease.

Now imagine you are one of those terminally ill cancer patients, you start this doctor's treatment and after a short period of time your cancer almost completely disappears -- when all of a sudden the government closes down the doctor's clinic and also starts harassing you?

When I was about 18 years old I took an Argumentation and Debate class in college. On one occasion, and prior to existing legislation, we debated whether the government of California had the right to force people to wear seat belts. I chose to participate on the side that was against it. My main belief and argument was that seat belts can protect you in an accident and it might be foolish not to use them, but no one should have the right to force you to use them because it is your life/body that is involved, no one else’s and you own your life. I won the debate.

So, how are we starting the year, this famous 2012? Let's see:

- On New Year's Eve President Obama signed the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) that provides for the indefinite detention of Americans without charges or trial. He previously said that he disagreed with this feature of the bill but he put pressure on Congress to make sure it was included. Afterwards, he signed a statement stating that he disagreed with the above provision and that "he" would not enforce it. Then, why sign it? Who will?  Also think of this, if the government thinks they don't have to take you to court, and thus not provide you access to an attorney, then they don't need to even acknowledge that they have you in custody (torture) - so now Rendition can be used universally against any perceived enemy of the State.

Noam Chomsky is an American linguist, computer scientist, philosopher, cognitive scientist, and activist. He is an Institute Professor and Professor Emeritus in the Department of Linguistics & Philosophy at MIT. Chomsky has been described as the "father of modern linguistics" and a major figure of analytic philosophy. His work has influenced fields such as computer science, mathematics, and psychology … He is also the eighth most cited source of all time, and is considered the "most cited living author (from Wikipedia).

In 2009, while searching the internet for any comments on my project Café Peyote, I found the following quote:

"If Noam Chomsky and Kurt Cobain made a record it would sound something like this."

"There are two basic theories as to what cancer is. The orthodox theory is that healthy body cells for some UNKNOWN reason mutate into cancer cells. The general idea is that the unknown reason is a result of aging, poor diet, heredity, a bad condition that slowly mutates into cancer, or something along those lines." The second theory – or the unaccepted theory – is that cancer is caused by a very unusual virus that changes from a virus to a bacterium and back to a virus again … This second theory is based on what is called pleomorphism. Research into this theory is not allowed … No money is available for such research and those who try to get funding hit a brick wall … The FDA, FTC and the AMA put every possible roadblock in their way.” From “Breakthrough: The Miracle Mineral Solution of the 21st Century,” by Jim Humble, 4th edition.

MY DILEMMA Did you ever hear the story about a homeless drunk man, wasted and spread on the floor outside of a liquor store, who told a young man coming out with a six pack in his hand, “Hey, don’t abuse alcohol, it can ruin your life”? If we happened to be there, we might think many things of that drunk and I guess it would be very hard to consider him a trustworthy source of information, but that does not change the truth in his advice.

To me it is difficult to understand how some people still ask themselves how the United States should proceed in Iraq. If you take all we know now about the misinformation that was used as the basis to invade Iraq and everything that has since followed, it seems to me that the correct thing to do is to completely leave that country -- if not pay them for all the damage in human suffering and infrastructure we have done. And for those that might say, “Well, if there was no connection to 911 and no weapons of mass destruction, we did it to bring them freedom and democracy” – that is far from what they have now. But let’s take it a step further: the United States does not have the right (international or divine) to force upon any nation a different form of government. And our nation is not setting any good example.

In the Conspiracy world, the 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and the other airplane attacks are considered to have been planned and carried out by people inside government and those corporate interests behind them, perpetrated against the American People (and the world) to create the excuse to launch an endless war against an unknown enemy, all for the purpose of world domination through fear an intimidation. To be true, the insiders would have to be at the top, from the President and his cabinet, to the mass media empire that controls all the news that surrounded the attacks. And the other thing that would need to be true is that the Twin Towers were brought down by explosives in a controlled demolition.

You have probably heard or read somewhere about The New World Order, One World Government and/or The Conspiracy and people that believe in it, which are typically classified as being “conspiracists” and nuts. The New World Order represents in the mind of many the ruling elite’s plan to dominate the whole world through a one world government, run by the United Nations and similar institutions and the persons behind them, effectively and by its own nature, submitting the world to a fascist regime run by corporate interests. It’s pretty hard to believe.

And speaking about your welfare, we are really being pushed mentally to get not only the H1N1 vaccine, but also the seasonal flu shot and they want everyone to get it. And yes, the supposed “pandemic” swine flu scared the shit out of me when I first heard about it, but as time passed and I did all the required research (no to mention so many emails of friends forwarding things that they found on the subject), it turns out that it fits perfectly with this global, one world government movement.

There are many things that divide us, like gender, race, color, religion, country, state, city, team, wealth, political affiliation, abortion, gun ownership and a host of things that supposedly define us, and from which we make our opinion as to who we think we are and what we believe in. This may be our primary problem as a race, as to our survival -- how we judge and treat others based on those differences. Healthcare is one of these things that keep us apart.
