Sen. Bob Menendez Indicted On Public Corruption Charges



Sen. Bob Menendez Indicted On Public Corruption Charges

WASHINGTON -- Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) on Wednesday was indicted on public corruption charges for allegedly accepting bribes from a Florida ophthalmologist in exchange for using his position to push the doctor's interests, according to a Justice Department official.

Menendez was indicted on a total of 14 charges: one count of conspiracy, one count of violating the Travel Act, eight counts of bribery, three counts of honest services fraud and one count of making a false statement.

The FBI had been investigating whether Menendez received items of value in exchange for taking official actions on behalf of his friend and donor Dr. Salomon Melgen, who was the subject of a separate investigation into his billing practices.

Menendez has denied any wrongdoing, and the case could rest on questions about the reach of the "speech and debate" clause of the Constitution, which makes it very difficult for members of Congress to be prosecuted for their official acts, and difficult for federal investigators to access materials that may implicate members of Congress.

The senator from New Jersey never reported flights he took on Melgen's jet in 2010, but said he reimbursed the donor for nearly $60,000 in early 2010. Menendez set up an ethics fund to fight the investigations last year.

How do we escape this prison planet?

"This has been called a “prison planet”.  How can we escape from the system, the slavery system, as it has been this way for many, many generations?”

An interesting question.  I believe it is not so much a question of escape but of mindset.  We have been engineered with a pre-disposition for worship.  If you consider the numerous ancient ruins discovered, many thousands of years old, that were clearly made by someone with advanced technologies, an obvious question is “who made them and why?”.  There are no clear answers.  Yet mankind still today holds reverence for these beings; beings that no one alive has ever seen, or ever heard about from another living human.  This tendency to obey and to work for praise or prize is not evident in every sentient race; yet it seems fundamental in humanity. 

Perhaps, once created, the human race was ripe for the picking.  Perhaps, a being or group of beings with advanced abilities and an appetite for attention/praise/worship moved in and the idea of “god” was born.  Perhaps we willingly got down on our knees, believing it would grant us favor and things that we could not get on our own.  Perhaps great acts of creation and power were used then, to convince us it was a good idea to obey.  No one alive today has seen this or any god actually, so the question arises “why are we still on our knees?”.

The necessity for worship is the mindset that first will need to change, in order for freedom to ensue.  You are not free if you are beholden to any other being or system. The being that is worshipped as a “god” on earth is sovereign.  It worships no other. It has an addiction to getting worship.  All that it does is motivated by that addiction.

It understands what it needs and creates it; no cost is too great for it perceives no expense.  It knows that there is always more.  It understands the focus required for satisfaction and maintains that focus always because to do otherwise would prove to be self-destructive.  This being is not self-destructive. It serves only itself.  It has no expectations. It goes after whatever it needs/wants and it gets it always.  Its needs are not negotiable.

If a being such as this one was held in a slavery system, it would merely create around itself another system it could control, and utilize it for its own benefit.  It would never negotiate or imagine anyone other than itself in control.

A mindset similar to this is what sovereignty demands.  This is a completely self-centered way of being, and as such it sounds distasteful.  I believe it is upon the human to utilize a similar system, only to consider all of humanity at each creative decision; the “self”, in other words, is the collective.  Oneness demands the inclusion of all of us. We can create whatever we set our mind to create.  Tenacity and focus are critical to success.

There is no true “escape” in the traditional “get out of jail” fashion. The earth is our home. Each time we stand for our needs and our freedom, we step into sovereignty.  This is a process that we are creating with each individual and group effort.  We cannot see the entire effect from our vantage point, yet it exists. We need each other, impact each other, and together we free each other.  We truly are the ones we’ve been waiting for.

Thanks for the great question!

After the Shift - Walking on New Ground

We’ve shifted and this alters the course of everything.  This may not be recognized today as pivotal, yet from this month on things have irrevocably changed.  If you’ve been waiting for the day, well, wait no longer.  This is not the only shift we’ll go through, but it was a substantial one.

Your experience of this will be one crafted by you alone.  When you chose to participate, it was with full knowledge of the shift upon us now.  The change that just occurred will reverberate out and when and how you feel it very much hinges on choices made by you thus far.

What is always true is that you are in control.  Yet you reside within a field that was altered 2 weeks ago.

It’s like being on a boat – the tide rises and falls while you sail and float – how aware you are of the change depends on where your boat is sitting and where you are inside of it as well.  The boat and you will adjust to the tide.  You may not even know this.  If your life is about being deep in the shifting waters – you will feel every alteration and each will affect your life, your day, your work.  This time is all about choices and actions taken by you and those you are with now.

What must be considered is every facet of this being that is you.  All actions taken – those physical, emotional, mental and spiritual - will impact the wholeness of you.  You are not a conglomeration of isolated parts.  You are One.

This point, the fact of our unity, is what I am seeing demonstrated everywhere.  We react and act in complete wholeness.  If there is anger in our actions, each component of us expresses the violence.  If there is compassion, all parts experience the peace.  There are no separations, despite how we have been taught.  We are One; you cannot isolate any single aspect of us.  This unification of our self-understanding begins the process of our collective unity.  Do you see?  Once we experience unity on a visceral level, we will experience it daily, with everything and everyone.

It is a fallacy that separates your soul from your body – you are multi-dimensional.  You exist as a multitude of forms and aspects.  All of you exists this way.  In any circumstance, fractal, lifetime or focus you are One – whole, complete and joined.

The separation of your body, mind, heart and soul has been intentionally preached to reinforce polarity.  No part of you is separate – like fingers on the same hand – every thought impacts the body, every feeling impacts the mind, every physical action impacts the heart and every nonphysical intent/prayer impacts each thought.  The circle continues and is complete and inclusive.

What does this mean in our day to day?  It means that what we think and feel in our hearts and our gut, our head and our torso, our soul and our big toe are alternate expressions of one energy.  This is inescapable truth, whether or not it is recognized or acknowledged by most of society.  Unity is a fact.

You are One singular unit of source energy – eternal essence expressed now as a physical being. The vibratory shift Gaia just went through is being felt in every part of you. As all of you adjusts to this new frequency, many things will be easier for you.  Those that are not, well, you will have to determine whether or not to continue them.  We are literally on new ground.  The ground we came to walk on together.  We are the Ones we’ve been waiting for.

A short update on the upcoming lunar eclipse

A short update on the upcoming lunar eclipse
Aisha North

March 31, 2015

For now, much has been set into motion that will take more than a few of you by surprise, as the incoming crescendo of light that will accompany the darkening of the moon will be such, it will literally blow the lid off the deepest of reservoirs within. And when this treasure trove opens, much will be put into action in ways that will be apt to take more than a few of you by storm. For as the moon darkens, you will all begin to light up in a way you have not been able to do before, and as such, this upcoming period will be one of great enlightenment for all. But as usual, with the light also comes strife for those so inclined, as the refusal to accept these emissaries will be met with an increase in pressure that will set alight quite a few incendiary flames within many a troubled soul.

So once again we say, expect the unexpected to arise left, right and center, but do not look upon this as a message of doom and gloom. Rather, it is a reminder that with the light comes change, and as change is a concept that is oft met with the strongest of resistance within the very depths of mankind, it will in turn engender a veritable smorgasbord of reactions within your environs. Be that as it may, always remember that the greatest effect it will have, will be for the benefit of all, even if it will make quite a few individuals out there chafe at the reins because they see little or no options as what to do with all of this internal pressure they will feel arising within them as these emissaries continue to gather at their door. For this time, they will not leave, for this time, they will be insistent and so, whatever will be construed as a blockage is where the pressure will be increasing the most.

So expect to see annoyance arise within people around you, perhaps even within yourself, but know that this is simply an aid for you all to openly embrace the incoming light fully. And the more you are able to put aside any ideas of being in control in the upcoming days and weeks, the better this incoming energy will be at helping to release the inner workings that will greatly assist you and the rest of humanity in the time ahead.

For upheaval as such is not the goal of this energetic session that will shortly commence, rather, it is a well coordinated mission to liberate what has been trapped for eons, and as such, the path towards attaining that goal may be construed as more uneven than usual. For as we said earlier on, this time, the well-wishers and the aid workers will not stop from making their presence felt no matter how stubbornly some amongst your fellow men may cling to the belief that they are untouchable by the light. For the light will find a way in, even to the seemingly impenetrable of hearts, and when they do, a reaction will be set off in all, causing actions that will span the entire bandwidth of human psyche.

And so we say stay centered, lest you should be caught off guard by some of the machinations of your fellow men, for as is usual when the enlightened pressure increases, the will to lash out in fear and confusion will arise within those still set on maintaining an impenetrable perimeter against it. Of course, they will not see that the reason their anxiety will grow is that there is something within them that will start to vibrate in compliance with the incoming frequency, and so, all they will be able relate to, is a confusing current of discordant energies boiling within that will cause them to blow their lid in all sorts of ways. Be that as it may, for the ones such as you who have already embraced the idea of openness towards the light, this upcoming period will be an uplifting one indeed, as it will serve to catapult you even further on that illustrious journey you have already embarked upon. And so for you, this upcoming swell in the energies will simply envelop you in an extremely beneficial bubble of uplifting energy.

So take this to heart in every sense of the word, and know that your current status is one that will once again be enhanced by what will be coming your way in a few days from now. So stay tuned, and stay open to what is coming in, and stay alert lest you should come within reach of someone’s eruptive behavior as this flow of enlightened consciousness continue to build in momentum and in strength, and you will all find yourself sailing smoothly through these rapids, continually picking up speed as you go. So let your heart set the course, for the heart will never set anything in your way. For the heart is more than willing to embrace all of the light being offered to you, and so, it will help you to welcome it all in ways that will benefit you the most. So stay calm, and allow yourself to become elated as these incoming elements of enlightenment start to knock on your door. For they are here to lift you heart, your soul, and all of your being to a new height that might feel dizzying at first, but will soon feel just like home for you all.
