Reflections and Comments On Unsteady Times by Mitch Santell
Good evening followers and readers. Thank you so much for following my blog or at least checking in with me from time to time to get a sense of my observations. In 2007 I could not live in fear any more and I moved in New Zealand. The challenges I experienced there have now hit America and I wonder what kind of world and what kind of America my Grandchildren will live in once I am dead, buried and gone.
There seems to be a sincere lake of community. From what I observe on a daily basis I see more and more people who are either struggling, gave up or don’t know where to turn.
There has never been a time outside of The Civil War and The American Revolution that I have observed the United States at such a divided fork in the road.
Here are some thoughts that one writer put into an opinion piece. I related a lot to what was written. First, I am an American and Second, I feel sense and observe the constant chatter of so many that are extreme on both sides of the political spectrum.
Check this out and see if you are like mined with this:
What should we do during the next two years of divided government? We could spend them as we’ve spent the last two: React to every Trump outrage. Keep Trump’s narcissistic provocations at center stage. Express daily contempt from within the safety of our political silos.
This seems to be the business model for cable news and online media. There’s a big, reliable audience of people who will tune in to feel appalled by and superior to President Donald Trump, and who are addicted to their daily rituals of moral onanism.
On the other hand, we could put the Trump soap opera off to the side and pay attention to actual Americans and actual solutions. We could acknowledge that we are an evenly divided country. We could build the bipartisan governing coalitions and agendas suited to that reality.
Fortunately, many people are opting for plan B. For example, the Convergence Center for Policy Resolution gathers stakeholders across the political spectrum and gets them working together on common visions — union bosses with Walmart executives, teacher union leaders with charter school heads.
Washington think tanks are undergoing a fundamental evolution. A lot of them, like the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution, were built to advise parties that no longer exist. They were built for a style of public debate — based on social science evidence and congressional hearings that are more than just show trials — that no longer exists. Many people at these places have discovered that they have more in common with one another than they do with the extremists on their own sides.
So suddenly there is a flurry of working together across ideological lines. Next week, for example, the group Opportunity America, with Brookings and AEI, will release a bipartisan agenda called “Work, Skills, Community: Restoring Opportunity for the Working Class.”
Written by a wide array of scholars, the report starts with the truth that the working class has been mostly ignored by the rest of society. Government has welfare programs to serve the poor and they have programs like 529 savings accounts to subsidize the rich. But there’s very little for families making, say, $50,000 a year.
Businesses like Amazon will invest in rich places like New York and Northern Virginia, but they won’t invest much in working-class communities in Ohio or Kentucky. Universities, religious organizations and activist groups will recruit from the affluent suburbs and serve those in dire poverty, but they barely touch the working class.
What you get is a layer of society that has been denuded of institutions and social bonds. Working-class men have been dropping out of the labor force at alarming rates. A generation ago, working-class families were about as likely to be part of religious communities as affluent Americans, but now their participation rates have plummeted. A generation ago, working-class families were nearly as likely to be married as affluent people, but now only half the children in working-class families will be raised in adolescence by stably married parents. From the 1970s to the 2000s, the share of working-class people aged 25 to 60 who were involved in a neighborhood organization fell from 71 percent to 52 percent.
We all must admit that we are living in extraordinary and transitional times. This is something I never thought I would see in my lifetime. What is it? The Border between the USA and Mexico Shut down.
Migrants approaching the U.S. border from Mexico were enveloped with tear gas Sunday after a few tried to breach the fence separating the two countries, while the U.S. halted all border traffic on Sunday between Tijuana, Mexico and San Diego.
U.S. agents shot the gas, according to an Associated Press reporter on the scene. Children were screaming and coughing in the mayhem.
Honduran migrant Ana Zuniga, 23, said she saw migrants open a small hole in concertina wire at a gap on the Mexican side of a levee, at which point U.S. agents fired tear gas at them.
“We ran, but when you run the gas asphyxiates you more,” she told the AP while cradling her 3-year-old daughter Valery in her arms.
Mexico’s Milenio TV also showed images of several migrants at the border trying to jump over the fence. A few yards away on the U.S. side, shoppers streamed in and out of an outlet mall.
Alcohol for so many of us is simply a social drink that we use in social situations. There are those of us who hold our beer or wine well and tend to laugh and smile. For others it can bring out a dark side.
The word “alcohol” is said to come from the arabic term “Al-khul” which means “BODY-EATING SPIRIT” (also, is the origin of the term” ghoul”).
In alchemy, alcohol is used to extract the soul essence of an entity. Hence its’ use in extracting essences for essential oils, and the sterilization of medical instruments. By consuming alcohol into the body, it in effect extracts the very essence of the soul, allowing the body to be more susceptible to neighboring entities most of which are of low frequencies. (why do you think we call certain alcoholic beverages “SPIRITS”). Spirits is SPEAR-ITS and it is us who are being speared in our defenseless and extremely toxic state.
That is why people who consume excessive amounts of alcohol often black out, not remembering what happened. This happens when the good soul (we were sent here with) leaves because the living conditions are too polluted and too traumatic to tolerate. The good soul jettisons the body, staying connected on a tether, and a dark entity takes the body for a joy ride around the block, often in a hedonistic and self serving illogical rampage. Our bodies are cars for spirits. If one spirit leaves, another can take the car for a ride.
Demons, once having hijacked a polluted and soulless body, often try to cause fear in a moral and unpolluted person, in order to have that fear pry open that person’s clean body for possession by another demon, who often is waiting in line for their visit into the physical realm. Fear is the catalyst for this sort of spirit transfer and all resulting dark behavior. Is our massive spike in society wide sexual confusion because our originals souls are leaving (out of fear, panic or trauma) and a soul of an alternate gender is taking up home in the open host? Something to think about. Much occurs beyond in the invisible realms.
Essentially when someone goes dark after drinking alcohol or polluting themselves in many other ways, their body often becomes possessed by another entity. Have you ever felt different, more sexual, more violent, less rational and less logical………after drinking alcohol? Are you aware we already live inside an ancient religious cult who are schooled concerning the dark powers of alcohol? It is this cult that popularizes alcohol, through the media and government it controls, to serve a very ancient and dark agenda. In Canada just recently the Federal Government recommended weekly safe alcohol consumption as 15 drinks for men and 11 for females. As William Shakespeare said, “Hell is empty and the devils are here.” It’s more than obvious who stands between us and the life we all deserve to be living. It is us who stops our own ascension into betterment, because we believe such blatant and obvious lies.
The solutions to our crumbling society are only to be found within our non polluted collective humanity, not within modern science and the honoring of the polluting chemicals which it represents. Our dark and immoral human farmers masquerade as altruistic governments, who then serve us up to dark spiritual entities that feed off our energies when we consume alcohol and a host of other toxic substances they rain down from the top of the ruling pyramid. We’re slaves living on an elaborate control grid…..based on indoctrination, propaganda, chemical sedation, toxic medication and we’re even used as food energy for dark spirits who live outside the frequency of visible sight. I haven’t drank alcohol in almost 6 years. Now, the dark spirits have no way to enter my body. Join the moral rebirth of humanity, unslave, reject the poison and lets get to work doing what we know has to be done.
California firestorms are false flags and engineered
No one is saying that these biannual wildfire seasons haven’t threatened California every year for many decades. However, what the geoengineers are doing now is significantly intensifying each successive period of these out-of-control and massive infernos. The recent firestorm calamities have never taken place with such speed and ferocity, even during the worst wildfire seasons.
It’s what they are doing between the fire seasons that is particularly offensive to the people of California. The geoegineers have been overseeing a regimen of chemical geoengineering that rains downs a tremendous amount of aluminum oxide onto the land below. This chemical compound (Al2O3) comes from coal fly ash and is eventually incorporated into the plant structure of all vegetation. See:U.S. Government Spraying Tons Of Toxic Coal Fly Ash Into Atmosphere Via Chemtrails
In the aftermath of the unrelenting spraying of the skies across America with chemtrail aerosols, forests are slowly dying as the grasslands and brush are drying out at an unprecedented rate. Chemically mobile aluminum has never been so prevalent throughout the atmosphere and it’s contaminating everything on the earth and in the seas. Vegetation of every kind is particularly susceptible to dehydration and therefore vulnerable to blight.
Then, after months or even years of droughts that are purposefully geoengineered, it doesn’t take much to trigger these telltale firestorms. Especially when the perpetrators are employing arson drones and satellite-based laser weapons is it quite easy to start a spate of fires like the “Camp Fire” that just destroyed Paradise, California.

Writing stuff that I don’t want to talk about by Mitch Santell
The hardest thing to tell an American in 2018 with our unemployment rate so low is that in the long run, America is still moving toward collapse. Not a quick breakdown, a slow failure over a 20 to 30 year period.
In America or at least our “brand” known as America we have always strived that each generation moving forward would have it better than the previous generation.
Please note this is my opinion and not based on any scientific poll. What do I think? As a baby boomer I contend that when my generation is gone, the last group of Americans who had it better than their parents will be gone.
What do we make of an economy in which a handful of bubblicious urban areas are magnets for jobs and capital while rural communities have been hollowed out? The short answer is that this progression of urbanization has been one of the core dynamics of civilization for thousands of years: opportunities are greater in cities, and so people move from rural areas with few opportunities to cities with greater opportunities.
But that’s not the only dynamic hollowing out America’s rural communities: globalization plays a key role, too. Rural economies can rarely muster economies of scale that enable globally competitive enterprises. Rural communities generally lack the capital, expertise, global supply chains and cheap transportation costs that are the building blocks of successful global production and distribution.
In a global economy characterized by over-capacity, over-production and mobile capital, localized rural economies can’t compete with the low cost of commoditized products distributed by finely tuned global supply chains and cheap transportation.
On October 10, 2015, I launched a two-hour show radio show every Saturday night on American Freedom Radio.
It is now almost three years since I initially launched the show and decided that my followers here at AfterHollywood.Online might enjoy hearing some of my thoughts on the state of American and the world at that time. A lot of it still applies to right here right now in 2018.
In the very near future, I’ll be launching a brand new podcast that is in pre-production right now, and as I formulate the new show, I openly share with you my last show. (Remnants and Luminaries).
The new show? It will be of course: “AfterHollywood.Online.” I think you’ll like it and it will be a different format than any other show I’ve done.
Make it a great day, enjoy your weekend and remember to do something kind and extraordinary for someone that makes a positive difference in their life.
One final note: Think about how much things have changed since 2015 and think about where we are in 2018 during the mid-term elections. It is a wild ride! Since this recording was made, I did acquire an iPhone 7s because it is just a necessity in America in 2018. May my comments inspire you and don’t hesitate to reach out to me any time you have a comment, question or a connection to share. Peace happy followers!
