Spiritual Warfare, December 25, 2015 Yesterday’s blog, The Eve of Spiritual Justice, reflected my judgments and beliefs. In this regard, I recognize, that it can be challenged. Indeed, one of those people I often turn to for criticism of my thoughts, emailed me back after reading it: Hi Scott: Strong, obviously “reaching conclusions.” If you have facts to support in the blog then you surely have the right to state what those add up to. If you are only presenting the conclusions – sort of like one of Shelley’s pro se pleadings – then you are overstepping, in my view, and you would do much better (and be more persuasive) to put the statements into questions, eliciting the reader to answer for themselves. Then it’s their conclusion, not yours. JUST GOT EMAIL FOR CHURCH SERVICE – I’M TO BE THERE AT 4:20 MUST GO – WILL LOOK AT THIS FURTHER LATER IF YOU WISH – SOME COMMENT BELOW In a message dated 12/24/2015 2:24:31 P.M.

The eve of spiritual justice is upon us. We, as a people, have reached a spiritual consensus that governments have failed to promote humanity’s best interests . We intuit as a matter of our collective consciousness the governmental corruption that denigrates our value as people and seeks to enslave us to debt. We know instinctively that now is the time for a spiritual awakening to reassess our leaders’ priorities; which appear to be only that greed which will sustain their power over the rest us. Everyone — from the rich to the poor; from the professional to the soldier — is aware of the evil which makes money, alone, a prerequisite to the exercise of our natural rights. There is a stench in the air, which we all smell and want to go away. It is worse than the smell of rotting flesh because it emanates from a rotting world that too few have controlled for too long. We are on the eve of change. Spiritual justice is now obtainable if we decide to create it.
Unfortunately, King County officials are a primary cause of Seattle’s homelessness problems and deaths. At least that was my conclusion after hearing the remarks (and having read the Audit) of nationally renowned auditor Marie McDonnell at the Seattle Mortgage Economic Reality (MERS) Summit at the Bethany Church last Sunday. King County’s land records have become corrupted as a result of the King County Sheriff and Prosecutor Office refusing to enforce Washington’s criminal laws against banks and hedge fund entities like Nationstar and Berkshire Hathaway. We, the people, need to do something about these public officials refusing to enforce the law against the wealthy 1%.We need to make Sheriffs and Prosecutors aware that we are watching them betray the public interest. Further, that we intend to hold them accountable for their betrayal of the people at the polls in 2016. So why does King County have land records and a recorder of deeds? Wikipedia explains the answer very simply: The legal certainty provided by a title deed issued under the registration of the recorder of deeds is of great significance to all parties who hold, or wish to acquire rights in real property. Certainty of title is the basis for the investment of massive amounts of money in real estate development for residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural use each year. This is why the meticulous recording of registration information by the recorder of deeds is so important. Each document recorded against title to real estate can be examined and the portion of the bundle of rights that it includes … Continue Reading
I am grateful to be a part of a spiritual movement designed to take our country back from the stomach of the empire which has swallowed it. It is not always easy practicing law while fighting off the empire. You have to take your lumps. But difficulties are often the source of new beginnings. Certainly, this is not how I envisioned spending my sixties when I was in my twenties. The Vietnam War began in November, 1955 and ended twenty years later in 1975. It was the last real war in the sense that American youth were conscripted from the general population and made to fight in a war that many of us believed should not have been fought. (Now the empire employs mercenaries to fight its endless wars having figured out that the people would not tolerate their children coming home in coffins unless they were paid to put their young lives in danger.) I was 20 in 1970 studying in London when I wrote “The Nakedness of Love”. I found the poem recently when I rummaged through boxes of my past. Although the poem is somewhat dated with regard to sexuality issues that are now being resolved, the third scene dealing with our government and politics still rings true. Scene 3: Act 1: Ashes are only ashes; Day is only day. Darkness always comes. It does no good to pray. The curtains will only open, they will never close. Man will become naked and refute all he knows. On … Continue Reading
