JZ Knight's dynamic interview by Whitley Strieber

Copyright © 2014 JZ Knight.
Used with permission.

From Whitley Strieber's Unknown Country:
"Whitley Strieber interviews the legendary JZ Knight, channeler of Ramtha, for the first time. Instead of the usual interview where the interviewer gets caught up in the validity of the channel, Whitley, who understands what channeling is and why it works, lets JZ really open up and tell us about the inner truth of creating one's own reality, and how it is something that can be learned.

"You will probably never have heard JZ on the radio sounding quite like this, when she is being interviewed by somebody with long experience of the numinous world and respect for her own forty years of experience."

"Anne Strieber begins the exchange by telling JZ about how her brain tumor has shut down her left brain, but given her creative right brain new freedom. JZ responds with insights into the life significance and potential of what has happened to Anne, and re-envisions it as a blessing rather than a curse."

"Later, Whitley brings up the fact that the Ramtha School regularly has lottery winners, and JZ explains why this is so. Then they go on into an intimate discussion of JZ's early encounters with Ramtha, and how the use of pyramid power—and the presence of joy—facilitated their first meeting.

JZ opens her heart and mind because she doesn't have to defend herself. Great listening!"

Bald Hills proposed cell tower location deemed too steep

ATT Bald Hills cell tower balloon test
July 16, 2014

From the Bald Hills Free Group:
The Bald Hills Free Group has advised that Cascadia PM (representing AT&T) has decided not to go ahead with the proposed cell tower on Weyerhaeuser parcel #23505000000.

This was confirmed by Linda Doucette, Board President of Clearwood Community and Noah Grodzin of Cascadia PM (representing AT&T).

The topography of the land (too steep) has been cited as reason for stopping the project. So far, no application permit has been submitted . However, we remain vigilant of any changes in this process. If you would like to understand better where this decision might come from visit our website:

We want to thank you all for your participation (donations, signatures, ideas, media exposure). We will keep on working to educate the public about the possible side effects this proliferation of cell towers can have on the environment and what this means for animals and humans alike.

Canadians warned about traveling to US with cash

"Canadian Government Warns Citizens To Not Carry Large Amounts Of Cash Into The US Due To Cash-hungry Cops"

"On its official website, the Canadian government informs its citizens that 'there is no limit to the amount of money that you may legally take into or out of the United States.' Nonetheless, it adds, banking in the U.S. can be difficult for non-residents, so Canadians shouldn’t carry large amounts of cash.

That last bit is excellent advice, but for an entirely different reason than the one Ottawa cites.

There’s a shakedown going on in the U.S., and the perps are in uniform.

Across America, law enforcement officers — from federal agents to state troopers right down to sheriffs in one-street backwaters — are operating a vast, co-ordinated scheme to grab as much of the public’s cash as they can; 'hand over fist,' to use the words of one police trainer," quoting Neil Macdonald, CBC News.
