” What I know today is that it’s what I do with what I’ve got with the rest of my life, that anything else is superficial and useless.
What I watch in other people is what they do with what they’ve got, not anything or anyone they cite to validate themselves.
All I leave is my legacy not theirs. ” ~ Ricky Ray
Former waitress who stole from restaurant decades ago, sends an apology, $1,000
Carlotta Flores, who owns a Mexican restaurant in Tucson, Arizona, said her son called her one night last week to tell her that she had to come by to pick up an envelope, and that she’d be greatly surprised.
Inside was a handwritten letter from someone said she used to work at the restaurant, El Charro Cafe, in the 1990s and $1,000 cash, according to local reports and photos shared on social media. The person, who did not leave a name, said that while she was working as a waitress and studying at the University of Arizona, she had stolen a few hundred dollars from the restaurant. Now she was trying to make it right.
Commentary on How Life Imitates Art by Mitch Santell
Hollywood has a deep dark secret. This secret is so deep and embedded within Hollywood’s DNA that the studios, producers, and executives never discuss it. What is it? The creation of films that provide you with a storyline that you know you have seen before. Yes, you have seen it before! It is called predictive programming.
Ever see the movie Geostorm? (Trailer is: 2 Minutes 29 Seconds).
Now let’s fast forward to what is happening in Redding over the past week. This clip from the Associated Press is for educational purposes only. (Time: 1 Minute 7 Seconds).
What Is ‘Predictive Programming’?
Predictive programming, a theorized method of mass mind control, proposes that people are conditioned, through works of fiction, to accept planned future scenarios.
How Would It Work?
Details of pre-planned societal changes are intentionally revealed to the masses through various forms of media. Propagandists use this type of foreshadowing as a means of pre-emptively minimizing resistance. Repeatedly exposing the public to the same specific themes should wear them down into a state of passive acceptance. By the time said changes start to manifest in reality, few will even think to question the developments, let alone rebel against them.
Fiction is the vehicle used to deliver these “predictions” for an important reason. When most people watch a film for example, they see it as a benign form of entertainment and nothing more. Therefore, as the viewer’s guard is lowered, messages can bypass the normal critical thinking process and download directly into the subconscious like a virus.
For predictive programming to work as a valid form of psychological conditioning, the following set of general rules and assumptions have to be made:
1). A group of powerful people (with a common agenda) might be able to exert a special influence over the entertainment industry.
2). People are less likely to resist societal developments that they’ve already been familiarised with.
3). The messages planted within fiction can vary in terms of their subtlety, ranging from subliminal clues to important plot points.
4). Although predictive programming prepares people for large social change, specific events can also be foreshadowed.
5). The exact contexts of the “predictions” (and the subsequent reactions of the characters within the story) aren’t strictly important.
Comments on Waking Up to Social Engineering by Mitch Santell
Happy Saturday dear readers and followers and thank you for being here. Pour yourself a fresh hot or ice tea or a cup of coffee and listen as Jaron Lanier shares how he is building his career without being on social media. Jaron Lanier works for Microsoft, and his employer opening encourages him to dump on any platform that he feels is messing with society.
On this week’s new episode of Too Embarrassed to Ask, Kara Swisher talks with Jaron Lanier, a VR pioneer and longtime technology critic who currently works at Microsoft Research. He’s the author of a new book, “10 Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now” and explains why those who have the opportunity to quit platforms like Facebook and Twitter should do so. He compares the problem to past crusades against “mass addictions” like smoking or drunk driving, arguing that hearing more voices from people who are outside of the addiction may be the most helpful way to turn the tide.
You can listen to Too Embarrassed to Ask on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Pocket Casts, Overcast or wherever you listen to podcasts. Below, we’ve shared a lightly edited full transcript of Swisher’s chat with Lanier.

Reflections On A World That Has Gone Pear Shaped by Mitch Santell
The only way to survive the Democratic Party is to #WalkAway. Why do I say this? I was a Democrat from the age of 18 until the age of 60 when I decided that America needed to act like America again.
Here is my take on the #WalkAway Movement. You have thousands and thousands of Americans who decided that America could not take another four years of the USA acting like the Weimar Republic where anything goes.
Many will initially join the Republican party, long-term none of these people may even stay with the Republican party. What most people still don’t get is that President Trump is not a real Republican. He is an entrepreneur that ran as a Republican to blow the other side out of the water.
There is a massive blowback from the Obama years. To many of you who worshiped the ground that Obama walked on, you have to look further and take your research more seriously to realize that America is a “Constitutional Republic.”
What other country do you know of that exists to pursue Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness?
The most sinister thing that happened under Obama was the Lisbon Treaty signed in 2007 that shifted power throughout Europe. There were many who fought long and hard against this Treaty.
The Lisbon Treaty was signed anyway, and it was then something known as Article 50 that started the journey towards Brexit just as Trump was pushing to stop the TPP (The Transpacific Partnership Agreement).
Hollywood is paying for the hell that they created. Hollywood is not on the right side of history. When I saw that “Trump’s Star On Hollywood Walk of Fame Destroyed With Pickaxe,” I knew that the blowback and hatred toward our President are the worst that I have ever experienced.
Donald J. Trump is the closest thing to Ross Perot that we will ever have in office so be grateful.
Ross Perot like Donald Trump did not mince words.
Ross Perot said “NAFTA” would create a “Giant Sucking Sound” in America with massive job losses to Mexico. This clip from 1992 is 2 minutes and 35 seconds long and worth reviewing again.
Hollywood’s Dirty Secret
The tinsel town that we know as Hollywood must continue to spin their lies about what is going on behind the curtain and the casting couch. It was crucial that Hollywood Executive’s like John Lasseter leave because if they did not, then the ultimate truth would come out.
WTF? Can you believe what this woman is saying? Wake Up!
Here is my final comment on this posting (12 Seconds):
“A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through…all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself.
For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to fear. The traitor is the plague.”
Think as an individual and don’t base your opinion on groupthink or identity politics. Here is another spectacular posting by Jon Rappoport successfully articulating what so many of us think and know is going on!
The primary feature of The Group is: its members look at events in accordance with what they think other members are seeing.
It’s like passing around an unknown object, from hand to hand, and describing it as you believe everyone else will describe it.
You are always listening for “an echo effect” before it happens.
And you claim the echo effect is what you perceive.
High-IQ idiots will tell you this is the only way society can operate. They no longer know what it means to see things as they actually see them. And when they vaguely sniff out a free individual, they recoil in horror.
In the early days of the American Republic, as the two-party system developed, certain men saw the movement toward collectivism.
In phase one, it was evolving into polarized opposition. It…
Comments from a Republic called America by Mitch Santell
The NATO meeting that we witnessed online live was terrific to watch. Trump is doing his best actually to represent the Sovereign Interests of America. Unlike President Obama, who was a globalist, Trump is fighting directly for the USA.
The United Nations is a Globalist organization that is in global partnerships with NGO (Non-Government Organizations) who act in stealth.
While I deeply respect President Obama’s style and coolness while in office, I didn’t appreciate his vision and passion for Globalization.
Ladies and Gentlemen, dear readers of this blog, we do not want America to turn into Europe. Why? Germany is an excellent example of a country that has been overrun by foreigners. The reason that I mention this because America is a Republic, not a Democracy.
President Trump isn’t going to withdraw from NATO, he wants other countries to contribute their fair share. On top of this? Trump just told the Prime Minister of England that their “deal is off.”
Before Donald Trump even ran for President, even President Obama said that we needed a “Global Correction.”
It was President Obama who literally “created President Trump.” Obama in my humble view seemed to run America like it was the Weimar Republic. In Obama’s world, anything goes, and the rights of Transgenders are substantially more important than other issues facing America. What did people want? They wanted jobs. Trump is getting them jobs. Want more proof? It was not Hillary Clinton that attacked Donald J. Trump, it was Obama. I watched Obama while living in New Zealand and I was pulling my hair out.
President Trump has absolutely no intention of leaving NATO, but he is sick and tired of America footing the majority of a financial bill to keep NATO intact.

This is a crucial blog posting, and I suggest that you read it. Why? It will explain more than anything else, why President Trump is in office, and it also tells why America is so divided. There is something significant that happened at NATO. Did you see it? Oh, what exciting times! I’ll have more to say about this in my next post.
“[The] nation state as a fundamental unit of man’s organized life has ceased to be the principal creative force. International banks and multinational corporations are acting and planning in terms that are far in advance of the political concepts of the nation state.” (Zbigniew Brzezinski, 1969)
This famous quote from one of the world’s leading Globalists could have been written more truthfully. For example: “We must do everything we can to eliminate the reality of separate and individual countries. In this regard, breaking down borders with massive waves of immigration will go a long way.”
And what about Brzezinski’s remark that corporations and banks are acting in ways that are “far in advance” of the nation-state?
Perhaps this is what he means by advanced concepts: Corporations are empowered to set up factories in Third World hellholes, where they employ workers…
After Steve Jobs, I have been searching my heart and soul for what is going to be Apple, Inc.’s saving grace. When Steve Jobs passed on the DNA that is Apple, a piece of the company died when Steve did. Not an easy thing to admit because I was inducted into the Apple Cult early on in 1984.
In 1984 I purchased a Fat Mac for 3,700.00 Dollars plus Tax in Los Angeles. Now fast forward to 2018 and look where Apple is now.
Apple can’t stand still, and it is trying not to be a casualty of its own success.
Apple has something big brewing. What is it? Apple is about to overtake Spotify as the top paid streaming service. There is a reason for this. The reason is Apple incredible relationship with its customers.
The streaming market is being fine-tuned. If you are a songwriter and artist, you are going to have to pay very close attention to what each of these streaming companies is doing.
Spotify is being as innovative as Apple in that the company is allowing artists to sign themselves to Spotify as a real artist giving them more control of their content.
Many companies offer the same product, but their pricing scheme is related to how they can accumulate the most amount of customers.
Take a deep breath investing a few moments in listening and watching what is happening at Napster. (Yeah, man, they are still around)! The company is now called Rhapsody / Napster. The new company adds 24,000 new streaming tracks every 24 hours. The company has their payout structure in place and are paying top dollar to the artists and companies.
Time to reflect on where the market is shifting. Let me know your thoughts. I’ll expand further on the challenges that face Apple and why but in the meantime, check out this reflective talk between Bill Patrizio, President & CEO, Rhapsody Int’l – Napster (USA) interviewer: Mark Mulligan, Managing Director & Analyst, MIDiA Research (UK)
It will take a total of 100 Contacts within any industry to do your project. It has to be the right contacts, and you will know as you uncover them.
It only takes 10 minutes to start a task you dislike. After 10 minutes you can stop, but in most situations, you will invest the extra 20 or 30 minutes needed to finish it. The result? Your day will be productive and inspired.
It only takes one person to believe in your dream. With just one person, new energy exists that does not exist when you are apart.
The phrase so many of us have heard over the past 30+ years is about “Thinking Outside the Box!” Thank God the box is finally on fire, and so many of us entrepreneurs are ready to step out from the circle of mediocrity to create something bigger!
Why You Should Stop Caring and Start Doing What You Love
How do you do what you love when it goes against everything you have been taught by this collectivist society? Do you get told that your dreams will land you in the gutter? That your passions are a surefire way to crash and burn? Well, what if that wasn’t true at all? What if you could earn a living from doing exactly what you love? (Spoiler Alert: You can!)
Here is the truth of 2018: you don’t have to be trapped by society’s prefabricated boxes anymore. The digital era has opened up a trove of new opportunities in industries and markets that didn’t even exist 10-20 years ago. New products and services are popping up every day. There is a rising demand for unexpected skills and passions. There is definitely a place in this new world for you.
The Box is burning right now and it’s a pretty good time to get out of it.
The reality is that the old world is falling away, and quickly. Industries, products, and companies that reigned supreme years ago are moving overseas, being replaced by AI & machines, or going out of business.
A good example is Blackberry. Back when smartphones were hitting the market, Blackberry didn’t go with the new trend. Blackberry wanted to stay with their old model, but the market was demanding the ability to customize their own experience. They never adapted and Blackberry faded from the store shelves.
More recently, Toys R Us has been left in the dust. By not adapting to the shifts in the toy-selling market, they fell behind.
Sounds a little depressing, doesn’t it? But it just means opportunity for you.
The way is opening for new markets, and you can find–or create–your place in them right now.
You don’t have to open a physical store: eBay and Amazon provide platforms to sell products.
Many of the wealthiest people got their start renting real estate. That’s never been easier or more lucrative with Airbnb.
Education on any skill you want to learn is at your fingertips online–and often free.
You want to travel and do your work on the go? There is the digital nomad lifestyle that didn’t even exist a few years ago.
