PORT AU-PRINCE, Haiti — Some three months after Haitian prime minister, Jack Guy-Lafontante, and his entire Cabinet resigned following a botched attempt to remove a fuel price subsidy under the advice of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), which led to massive civil unrest and riots in Haiti, another round of protests occurred across the country within the last few days calling for full transparency and accountability in relation to the funds from the PetroCaribe oil sharing agreement with Venezuela.

Robert Mugabe Deserves Respect

Mugabe is a hero

Robert Mugabe is a AfRAkan hero!

In the early hours of Nov 15th, 2017, news broke that Robert Mugabe, president of Zimbabwe had been removed from office by his country’s army. The details of his ouster are not well known, however, Army leaders in Zimbabwe are refusing to call it a Coup. Instead they say Mugabe is safely under house arrest as part of a military action to root out criminal elements in the government. Whatever the outcome of the situation turns out to be I think it is safe to say that Mugabe’s rule of Zimbabwe is over.

Many people are no doubt rejoicing at Mugabe’s demise, some inside Zimbabwe, other regions of Afraka, and especially in the Western world. All three areas hate him for three different reasons, none of which are valid if he is to be judged as a man who loves his race, his country and Afraka; his personal imperfections notwithstanding.

Mugabe rose to power in the 1980s as part of a rebel uprising against foreign influence in Zimbabwe; namely White rule. They gained independence from Britain by force, changed the country’s name from Rhodesia to Zimbabwe and held elections, which Mugabe won. The country immediately began to experience turmoil as the losing parties began to fight back physically as well as through economic sabotage.

Mugabe’s main opposition came from the other rebel groups, which helped to free Zimbabwe from British rule. They felt they should have been rewarded with a share of power. When they realized that they were double-crossed they began to stoke tribal conflicts within the country. They also sought help from Western backers who steered them away from Socialist ideologies and trained them to fight Mugabe using Human Rights and Ethics.

The Whites of Zimbabwe were the most outraged. Although their population was small, they owned most of the land and commercial wealth of Zimbabwe. (I guess Ethics are only reserved for the so-called civilized) They immediately began to move their money out of the country and with the help of Western financial agencies and governments began a covert operation to bankrupt the Zimbabwe government.

Mugabe saw all the unethical things that Western governments were doing to sabotage Zimbabwe so he lashed out. He taunted Britain and the Queen as well as to implement a land seizure policy against White farmers. Many White farmers were killed in the process as poor Afrakans invaded White owned farms and took over; never mind they didn’t have the expertise or know how to farm themselves.

Throughout his rule, Mugabe fought crippling Western sanctions that sunk Zimbabwe into financial obscurity. National pride eventually eroded into despair as the quality of life for everyday Zimbabweans fell year after year. Mugabe developed a dependence on financial help from his original backers in China, which only sunk the country further in debt. Then he was labeled a Dictator when he refused to step aside and let someone else rule.

Was Mugabe power hungry or was he afraid that open Democracy would open the doors to foreign influence? The fact that the country’s opposition leaders were groomed in the West is the proof of the latter. Revolution is one thing, governing in a fair, equitable, and accountable manner is another. Such a task requires deep understanding of Life and reality, a quality that is also absent from all world leaders.

In essence, Mugabe failed as a leader because he is susceptible to the mechanisms of Life just like Europeans. That is, his personal Desires grew to corrupt his Conscience. He grew to believe that only his solutions could guide Zimbabwe for all time. His final misstep was to begin grooming his wife to take leadership of his political party as well as the government, a move that angered his comrades so they acted in his removal from power.

Why is Robert Mugabe a hero? Mugabe is a hero because he attempted to show AfRAkans a glimpse at true freedom.

Europeans live by the motto “Live Free or Die”, a motto that they reserve for themselves. Indigenous people of the planet have been colonized and put under subjugations to them. Freedom has to be fought for but even when it is achieved physically, the economic chains are enhanced and secured. (Ask Haiti about that) The result is that most former colonies exist in a state of false independence to enrich the homeland.

Never let dumb newscasters or political experts brain wash you with the narrative that Mugabe ruined his country. Mugabe was not perfect. He did not always govern using Fairness, Equity, and Accountability but he is the only Afrakan leader who dared to break the chains of colonial influence and for that he deserves respect.

How To Confront Racism And Police Brutality In America

how to confront racism and police brutality

Should Black People In America Fight Back, Separate, or Integrate?

Racism and police brutality is a very serious problem in America. Black people are being harassed by racists and killed by police at alarming rates. There are several ways to combat the problem. Unfortunately, none of them are easy and will involve either a new way of thinking, the use of physical force, or total segregation. The choice will depend on the willingness of Black people themselves.

Racism and police brutality has always existed in America but thanks to social media in the modern era, Black people are not as isolated and low informed as they used to be. News travels fast and when the police kill a black person without just cause there is usually someone around to see it and document it, either by video or personally sharing the incident online for others to see.

Religious leaders in the past, confronted racism and police brutality by attempting to showcase the hypocrisy of the actions of white people who believed in the same God as they did. The tactic worked to a certain extent because it forced a lot of white people to use their conscience. The only problem with that is, most white people never gained real sympathy for Black people; they only thought it would gain them favor in the eyes of their imaginary God.

Physical Confrontation

Many Black people have this belief that they can defeat the white man by force. They point out the actions of the Black Panther Party of the late 60s and early 70s with pride but dismiss the conclusion of the movement and others like it. They omit the fact that white people are seasoned killers who are experts in all manner of conflict including; conventional, biological, chemical, nuclear, and psychological warfare.

White people own the media and all platforms of communication. They own the Internet, computer companies, cell phones that we all love to play on, and television and news outlets. Because of their hidden prerogative to feed universal awareness they also understand Black people better than Black people understand themselves. Depending on how you organize, you may kill a few white people in pockets around the country but realistically, how long do you think a physical war with white people would last?

Total Racial Segregation

Black people also have the option of separating from white society. They have already been doing it for decades by moving into urban ghettos. The initial purpose was for financial help in the form of cheap or assisted housing. Eventually it grew into a way for both whites and Blacks to benefit from living separately. White people saw an opportunity to push Black people away from themselves and Black people saw a way to live their life without having to interact with too many whites.

The problem with ghettos is that because white people control the services and infrastructure, they de-fund the resources to maintain them. The results are poor education, poisoned water, broken down pest-infested dwellings, and of course, unhealthy food. Crime and drug use increases due to lack of good paying jobs and whites use the police as over-seers to keep Blacks from ranging too far out of bounds.

Some Black leaders have suggested the possibility of a segregated State within the United States. It would be a completely Black State, run by Black politicians, business people, and community leaders. All Black people across America who wish to socially separate from white people would relocate there. And of course, racist whites would also force Black people to relocate there.

A Black State’s internal success would depend on Black peoples ability to sort out our own problems amongst ourselves. The external success would depend on the level of interference from racist whites that would seek to de-fund it federally as will as to isolate it economically.

Target white people’s Conscience

The third method of fighting racism and police brutality in America is to gain a deeper understanding of Life then use the tactics of the past for the betterment of society on a whole. Black people must recognize that Life is a single conscious entity on a quest for universal awareness. White people are life’s most useful tool. The hormone Serotonin, which keeps them happy while their imaginary gods give them purpose, drives their consciousness.

Like Black people, they do produce Melatonin but because their Pineal Glands are calcified, they don’t produce enough to balance the erratic effects of Serotonin. It reinforces their unethical ideologies about reality that they arrive at through Curiosity and Risk. The Melatonin that they do produce acts on their Conscience to encourage fairness, equity, and accountability.

When Black people defeated the laws that maintained segregation in America, it was referred to as a gain for Black America. It was not referred to as a gain for the psychological improvement of white people. That’s because white people are so self-centered that they believe they don’t need help.

A lot of Black people will have a problem with this method because while it will help to combat racism, discrimination, and police brutality, it will also help white people with their sanity. This method involves targeting white people’s Conscience but first we must understand what Conscience does in order to target it.

Conscience is a base instinct that produces the psychological traits caring, sympathy, and empathy. White people seem to have an abundance of all three so why is their conscience so weak? Their conscience is not weak at all; it’s just hijacked by ideologies that enforce their false beliefs of racial and moral superiority over others. Ideology hates Truth so when they go to school and learn truth it burns away ideology.

That is why ideology driven conservative whites hate truth-seeking whites. They label anything based on conscience as political correctness and weak-minded Liberalism. Yes, they fight amongst each other over ideology but they never hate each other based on race. When they do fight they fight over money, territory, and class. They also never colonize and enslave their own. They only recognize the human will to be free in their own race.

Therefore, their conscience must be targeted through the media. Their conscience must be targeted through the courts and political systems. Their conscience must be targeted through religious and educational systems. Expose their hypocrisy by asking them if their god thinks its right to hate. Ask them if all humans were not created equal with the same inalienable rights. It will cause them to question the ideologies that comfort and support their so-called “way of life”.

Most Black Americans are under no illusions about race; it is an ever-present obstacle in their pursuit of happiness. They find themselves having to defend their own lives all because of their race. A solution must be implemented or America will continue on its inevitable course to all out civil war. Black people can arm themselves for that reality, seek total segregation, or help change the level of consciousness within society in general. The choices are clear, which one will you choose?

The Sun Is Both Heaven And Hell

Sun RA

Why unethical Souls are fuel for the Sun

Most people who have had near-death experiences often explain seeing a distant but enticing light. They also explain that the light pulls at them as if it were inviting them home to a comforting place. Dohgon Spirituality explains that light as the Sun and everyone who dies will have to face it. Some Souls will go through it, some Souls will get trapped on its surface, and some Souls will refuse to go toward the Light and remain on Earth. That is because the Sun is both Heaven and Hell.

All religions describe two fictional places called Heaven and Hell. God lives in Heaven which is described as a paradise. On the Day of Judgment he will choose only his most faithful to enter. Hell is described as the home of the Devil. It is an extremely hot and tormenting place where all bad people will be imprisoned for eternity. Since Dohgons don’t believe in Gods, Devils or ideas that shift our focus away from our responsibility to Life we suspect that what religion is really describing is the Sun (RA).

In Dohgon Spirituality RA plays a very important role. It represents both the physical and Spiritual aspects of the reality we exist in because it is the only gate between both realms. Dohgon Cosmogony explains the Sun as having a Carbon core. Particles of Matter are created in the core through a Permutation process and are pushed to the Sun’s surface. They then attach to energy waves and are distributed into the Universe. Light is a particle that rides on Pure Dark Energy Waves until the waves lose velocity and they fall off.

All energy exists in three states; Spirit, Soul, and Physical. Spirit is a high energy state that needs no medium to move from A to B. It can exist in two places simultaneously. Soul is lower energy state that needs Matter to travel, like Light, Wind, and Vapor. Physical is a very low energy state. It needs one thing to physically manipulate another thing to facilitate movement.

Humans are living Souls trapped in a low energy form. We can elevate our energy signature but we cannot transform into a Spirit until we die. The determining factor as to whether we transform or not is the weight of our Soul. Our Soul’s weight depends on how we function in life in terms of Fairness, Equity, and Accountability. In other words; did our Soul remain fit because we exercised our conscience as much as we could or did our Souls get fat through an over indulgence on our Desires.

When we die we all will immediately recognize the abstract energy signature of the Sun as a great enticing Light. Those who’s Souls are afraid to face it because of the unethical life they’ve lived and because they are addicted to physical gratification, will resist the Sun’s pull. They will remain trapped in a gray zone between the abstract and physical realm and roam the Earth as Ghosts.

Those who choose to go toward the Light will experience either one of two things; they will either get trapped on the surface or go through to the core where their Souls will be transformed into a pure energy Spirit. If the weight of your Soul is light enough you will break the Sun’s surface and travel to its Carbon core. Then you will be transformed into Pure Dark Energy and exist outside of Time and Space as a Spirit.

If you go toward the Light and you’ve not lived your life using Fairness, Equity, and Accountability your Soul will be too heavy to pass through the surface but by that point you wont be able to turn back. The everlasting ocean of fire will trap you as it did other unethical Souls like you. It’s for those reasons why we recognize the Sun as being similar to the Heaven and Hell described in popular religion.
