ON THE BRINK RADIO #247 HAWAI'IAN VOLCANOS UPDATE: REPORT FROM GROUND ZERO
Greetings from Hawaiian Volcanos Ground Zero. Well, not quite...'ground zero' would be where the lava has been coming out of the ground for the past 24 hours, about 12 miles from here. But about an hour ago I felt two quakes, one was around 5 or so but then the next one was, officials are saying, a 6.9 whose epicenter was about 17 miles from here. It shook the house for about 20 seconds. I was in the kitchen making a batch of certified organic vegetable and fruit juice, a long over-due treat possible because my friend loaned me her juicer...beet-root, carrot, celery, apple, ginger, and lemon...I continued jucing throughout the quake. But I was a bit unnerved with my friend came and told me than an announcement had said this quake was felt island-wide, and that we needed to be on stand-by to evacuate! Yikes. I diligently started organizing all my stuff, even though I am in the middle of several paintings and heaps of rocks.
Lucky that I'm never that far away from being mobile, but there's no way I'm evacuating this place and leaving anything here, not with my flight to Sydney coming up on Monday 14 May. YAY...I get to come home again after over 3 months in Hawai'i. My Australian visa just got approved a couple days ago so I then moved ahead with getting a ticket. I've come to like it here quite a bit, especially in the last couple weeks due to a new friend who has taken me up to the volcanos a couple times, someone to share crazy adventurousness with.
We went up to the summit of Mauna Kea two weeks ago, and I accidentally split the head of my drum 'Io Paikea Sun-thunder Kaka-Tatanka Wave Dancer' as I was drumming exactly at sunset, and exactly as Taiowa went down I hit the drum a bit too hard, and in the extreme low humidity and low temperature, it made a 10cm long crack in the head. Today I mended it with some vegan floss and Aqua-Seal, which should make it as good as new...and, just in case there was any connection between my drum and the volcano eruption that began a few days ago, to ask Pele to close the opening.
Interestingly, my friend Wally at whose house I'm staying, showed me a volcanos video a few days ago and I was inspired to look at the photographer's web-site, Mick Kalber. He is the premiere volcano photographer on the island, and he and Wally are old friends. I got in touch and he said he'd be happy to do an interview with me, but that, indeed, the next few days would be quite hectic, what with the collapse of the crater floor of Pu'u O'o, which had been brimming over with lava, but is now totally empty. All that lava went somewhere. And the Haleamaumau crater up within the main Kilauea has been very active. On Tuesday evening we saw huge fountains of lava leaping skyward, maybe 30 to 40 meters high, from a distance of 1.2 miles line of sight.
A large part of Leilani Estate has been evacuated since yesterday, due to lava coming up there through some fissures, with a good deal of gaseous emissions which can be nasty to inhale.
I asked Pele if she would put on a show for me while I was still on the island; she has come through, I just hope that we've seen the maximum displacements and shaking and eruptions already. The Hawai'ian volcanos are in general known for their relatively gentle eruptions and flows, which usually allows them to be studied and plenty of time for people to get out of the way of on-coming lava. But there's a lot of unpredictability, even among the experts.
I wanted to get this post up and out there just in case another bigger quake happens...but I am praying that it doesn't. Please send blessings and prayers for all of the Big Island, all of Hawai'i, including Kauai which was severely damaged by floods two weeks ago, and all of the marine life who will be under attack even more once RIMPAC starts in Hawai'ian waters in June.
I will keep you updated on a daily basis. If you'd like more information just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
MUCH ALOHA AND MANY BLESSINGS FROM THE SHAKEY ISLES :)

'POLITICAL IMPLICATIONS of the UFO PHENOMENON and 'E.T.' MYTH, Dave Emory
"A 1997 Gallup poll revealed that 42% of college graduates in the United States believed that the earth had been visited by extraterrestrials. This astounding statistic underscores the political importance of the UFO phenomenon, a subject generally regarded as the province of either fiction or psychopathology. This lecture addresses some of the salient political aspects of the subject. The concept of salvation from above by a superior power or entity is a powerful element of the mythology, folklore and belief systems of many cultures and religions. It is also a notion that can have particularly strong appeal in a time of dire social and political crisis.
Central to the discussion is an analysis of the political philosophy espoused and practiced by some of the “UFO contactee” cults. Professing a variety of beliefs about aliens, these cults hold in common a belief in extraterrestrials, a belief in the intellectual and scientific superiority of those “ETs” and (in many cases) advocacy of the governing of human affairs on earth by “our brothers from space.” These cults are infiltrated by the intelligence community, which devotes considerable attention to such groups. It is noteworthy that the system of government selected (presumably) by our space bretheren is essentially a totalitarian and fascistic one. The possibility of the political manipulation of the UFO phenomenon in order to bring about fascism is one that should not be too readily cast aside.
It is significant in this context that the ET myth originates to a considerable extent from elements associated with the intelligence community and a milieu that includes prominent American fascists such as William Dudley Pelley.
The human propensity to believe in UFOs as indicating the presence of ETs takes on an added significance when considered in light of the considerable evidence indicating that the “flying saucers” of popular imagination are real, but have a terrestrial origin. Mr. Emory presents evidence that the machines have their genesis in the closing phase of the Second World War, when the Germans developed disk-shaped, high-performance flying machines as anti-aircraft devices. The devices appear to have been improved upon by the United States and Britain in the post-war period. In 1955, the Secretary of the Air Force announced that the United States would soon begin testing and flying new types of aircraft that would resemble flying saucers.
In the conclusion of the lecture, Mr. Emory warns that UFOs might be deployed in conjunction with other secret technologies such as mind-control and/or genetic-engineering. He describes a hypothetical scenario described as “a combination of Orson Welles’ ‘War of the Worlds’ broadcast, the Miracle of Fatima and Pearl Harbor!”
Lecture Highlights Include: analysis of the famous Mantell case; veteran combat pilot Mantell’s last transmission while chasing a huge UFO (“My God, there are men in it!”); the joint U.S. development of the AVRO-Car, a military flying disc; the famous story of the “Foo Fighters” seen by Allied Airmen over Germany during the closing months of World War II; the Luftwaffe development of the Feuerball and the Kugelblitz disc-shaped anti-aircraft devices; discussion of the Raelian cult of Claude Vorhillon and its fascistic philosophical overtones; Russia’s 1994 marketing of an egg-shaped commercial airliner; William Dudley Pelley’s Soulcraft organization and its connections to alleged ET contactees; the strange career of alleged ET contactee George Adamski, who claims he travelled on a U.S government passport. (Recorded at Foothill College in October of 1992.)

“DIRAWONG GONDWANA DREAMING” MURAL
BYRON BAY NSW JULY-AUGUST 2016
Dirawong is the Bundjalung goanna dream-time ancestor, and her home is Evans Head NSW. She is daughter of Wollumbin (Mt. Warning), the ancient volcano, and grand-daughter of Gondwana, the ancient super-continent. She gathers lunar magic as a bolt of star-lightning discharges from the head of Burndilla (comet) to Wollumbin’s summit. In the centre of Warrambool or the Milky Way, the Hunab Ku radiates her life-giving emanations from her home between Sagittarius and Scorpio, as sky-wanderers Mars, Jupiter and Saturn dance around her.
From a high tableland a Bundjalung medicine man is ‘beholding country’ by day and by night, honouring the wisdom of the ancestors and contemplating the laws of nature and cosmos, accompanied by his allies the thylacine and rainbow dinosaur bird, feeling the warmth of the sun as she bathes her family of life on the land and in the ocean below her.
Myriad forms of sea-life bask in the crystal waters…sea turtles, octopus, star-fish, urchins, and rainbow cetaceans…Aihe the dolphin and Paikea-aniwaniwa the star-whales, one of whom is diving and whose tail flukes are receiving transmissions from the heart of the galaxy regenerating the health of life on Mother Earth.
Frogs, dragonflies, geckos, and families of marsupials…wombats, koalas, echidnas, platypus, wallabies and kangaroos frolic on the red Earth and in the lush eternally green bush. White and black cockatoos course the skies keeping their cumulus friends company, as lovely pandanus palms and grass trees provide shade and homes for their family of life, most of whom are invisible.
Grandmother Dirawong has donned her most beautiful garment, her sacred Rainbow Robe in honour of the sacred moment in time we call ‘now.’ She is honouring Wollumbin as one of the chakras in the body of the Rainbow Serpent, and is singing her song-lines of joy, harmony, and striving to maintain the highest laws of Baiame the star-maker, all-seeing Sky Father and guardian of all life.
