Barbara Marx Hubbard: Godmother of transhumanism and synthetic spirituality

Barbara Marx Hubbard 1
In 2016, the Global Future Councils of the World Economic Forum (WEF) posted a video entitled "8 Predictions for the World in 2030," which infamously forecasted a technocratic New World Order in which "[y]ou'll own nothing. And you'll be happy." It doesn't take a stretch of the imagination to ponder how WEF oligarchs plan to roll out "sustainable development" policies which will ration consumer goods in a global "sharing economy" that employs transient "gig" workers who will be rendered into propertyless serfs under a techno-communitarian rendition of neo-feudalism. But how will the globalist technocrats of the WEF sway the virtual peasant class to be happy with their permanent state of digitally indentured servitude?


Enter New Age guru Barbara Marx Hubbard and her endorsement of the HeartMath Institute's Global Coherence Initiative [1][2], which is propagating transhumanist neurofeedbackwearables across the planet in order to digitally synchronize humanity's collective heart rhythms and brainwaves into electronically induced states of synthetic spiritual bliss. With Hubbard's transhumanist blessings, HeartMath's global neurotech network is primed to lull plebs and proles into happy compliance with the "New Normal" of the Fourth Industrial Revolution's techno-feudal "stakeholder" economy.

In this first installment of my series on Hubbard's legacy contributions to the post-humanist religion and techno-fascist economy of the neo-eugenic Fourth Industrial Revolution, I will historicize how Rockefeller philanthropies bankrolled Hubbard's Foundation for Conscious Evolution in order to digitally engineer humankind into a new transhuman species baptized in the name of tech-Gnostic "Christ Consciousness" [3]. Furthermore, I will expose how Hubbard collaborated with globalists at the World Business Academy, corporatists at Singularity University, and Eupsychian human potential psychologists in connection with the Esalen Institute in order to establish a techno-communitarian spiritualism that worships transhumanist evolution controlled by Big Tech companies which dominate the stakeholder economy of the Fourth Industrial Revolution [4]. Finally, I will document how Hubbard advanced the globalization of HeartMath Institute's transhumanist biofeedback wearables which can neuro-technologically mesmerize the precariat into virtual states of happy subservience to the "New Normal".

'What You Don't Know': Book for NYC fifth graders lauds AOC, trashes religion

A children's book that reportedly knocks religion and praises Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been distributed to public school libraries, the New York Post reported Saturday.

"What You Don't Know: A Story of Liberated Childhood," written by and illustrated by Anastasia Higginbotham, which reportedly appears on a fifth-grade independent reading list, revolves around a black, "queer" boy named Demetrius struggling to fit in at school and church. At one point in the story, Demetrius' spirit is depicted meeting a character that appears to be Jesus, who tells him that everyone is invited to love and be loved, including an unnamed white man on the page that appears to resemble Republican Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Higginbotham confirms that the character is indeed Sen. McConnell during a book reading on a YouTube video, the New York Post reported.

Comment: Today's parents have their work cut out for them if they want to protect their kids from being groomed. The exposure these kids get to ideology is nearly constant.

Ruble hits 7-year high as gas buyers bow to Putin's payment mandate

Ruble 7-Year High Chart
On Friday the ruble surged to the highest level in seven years against the euro, thanks in large part to the Putin-ordered mandatory conversion of foreign currency by export-focused companies, also as China and India (and much of Europe) are still buying Russia's energy and agricultural products... despite the loud the threats coming from Washington, which have lately included a potential move to block Russian sovereign debt payments.

At this point the Russian currency is about 20% stronger than pre-invasion, as the war grinds on into its fourth month. Jumping as much as 9% against the Euro, the ruble last hit this level in June 2015.

More than 70,000 pounds of formula arrives in US, shipment will not be heading to store shelves

baby formula shipment
"Operation Fly Formula," a military operation enacted by the US to replenish the country's scarce stocks of baby formula, has brought in a massive shipment from Germany, but it has been reported that none of it will be destined for retail sales.

This initial shipment, which landed in Indianapolis on Sunday, will be destined for pharmacies and health care facilities such as hospitals, clinics and doctors' offices, exclusively, as part of the administration's $28 million initiative to combat the shortage.

In a Sunday tweet issued by President Biden, he announced that more than 70,000 pounds of infant formula was on this first flight.

Comment: Comment: From the New York Post:
The baby-formula shortage "is a crisis created, in significant part, by the failures of government policy aimed at protecting domestic companies from foreign competition," argues Reason's Eric Boehm. Biden's solution: Airlifting formula from Europe. Yet the shortage "isn't the result of there not being enough planes to transport baby formula from Europe,"; "it's the result of the federal government making it nearly impossible to transport" due to Food and Drug Administration labeling requirements. And America "imposes huge tariffs on imported formula," making us reliant on domestic production. So: "If you let markets work, there would be no need for a performative baby formula airlift orchestrated by the White House."
Hopefully this method of distribution will get formula into the hands of the parents who really need it. Be prepared, folks. We don't know what essential products may be affected by shortages next.

Elon Musk calls out old Clinton campaign tweet as 'hoax,' asks Twitter for answers

Elon Musk agrees that an old Hillary Clinton tweet alleged Donald Trump's ties to Russia should be flagged "as misleading disinformation."
Elon Musk called out an old Hillary Clinton tweet as a "hoax" Friday after a Twitter user flagged it for misleading disinformation and was ignored.

The tweet, written Oct. 31, 2016 during Clinton's failed presidential campaign, is a statement issued in response to a news report about an alleged secret server at Trump Tower that was being used to covertly communicate with Russia.

"Computer scientists have apparently uncovered a covert server linking the Trump Organization to a Russian-based bank," Clinton wrote in the tweet alongside the statement issued by one of her then-top aides, Jake Sullivan.

NYC Chinatown killer think he'll get away with it because 'they don't have me on camera killing her'

Assamad

Assamad Nash after being apprehended by police.
The deranged suspect charged with stalking and brutally murdering Christina Yuna Lee in her Chinatown apartment believes he'll get off scot-free — because he wasn't caught on video killing her with her own kitchen knife.

Assamad Nash, 25, is seen on surveillance video following Lee into her Chrystie Street building and pushing his way into her home, and was found at the bloody murder scene hiding under a bed, authorities said.

But in a 30-minute video interview from Rikers Island, he said he doesn't think that will be enough to put him away.

"First of all, they gotta have me on camera killing her, I'm not on camera touching her at all," Nash said.

Riots in Sri Lanka escalate

Sri Lanka in chaos
Not only has the state of the all-round crisis in which Sri Lanka found itself in March not "resolved" but, as recent events in the country show, it has become increasingly acute. Apparently, it is no longer an alarmist exaggeration to define the situation as "total chaos" by which this condition is assessed in China, that is one of several very interested "outside observers" of all that is currently happening in Sri Lanka.

Basically, the very fact of such interest on the part not only of the PRC but also of other major players in the current stage of the "Great Game" shows that a (seemingly) purely internal conflict in a "developing country" actually has an important external component. Earlier, the NEO discussed the reasons why the PRC, India and the US have been watching the developments in Sri Lanka continuously and with heightened scrutiny in recent years.

There is no certainty as to whether this attention is limited to simply observing the process of turbulence developing in this country or whether some of the leading players are also taking some measures to influence it. However, there is no clear definition of the category "influence" itself. Is India's $1 billion loan and forty thousand tonnes of diesel to Sri Lanka an "emergency aid to a friendly country" or an "interference in its naturally occurring internal political processes"? It depends on who and from what perspective evaluates this act by New Delhi.

Bush admits US broke promise on NATO expansion; says Ukraine should 'destroy as many Russian troops' as possible

Former US President George W. Bush
A prankster has duped former U.S. President George W. Bush into admitting the U.S. violated its promise to former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev not to expand NATO.

Believing that he was actually speaking with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, former U.S. President George W. Bush has been duped by a prankster into admitting that NATO expansion eastward towards Russia had violated a U.S. promise not to do so. "Listen, times change," Bush says in a video created by the Russian prankster duo known as Vovan and Lexus.

After "Zelensky" calls Bush "a very, very wise person," the former U.S. president says he didn't want Russia to become a member of NATO either, but rather, "I wanted them on the fringe of NATO. I wanted Ukraine in NATO."

Bush tells "Zelensky" that "your mission is to destroy as many Russian troops as you can."

He then condemns Russian President Vladimir Putin for essentially putting an end to Wall Street and Washington's domination of Russia under President Boris Yeltsin. "I thought for a while that Russia would be more cooperative and then Putin changed dramatically," Bush tells the fake Zelensky. Russian pranksters (who have been banned from YouTube) put out a short video. Here is a longer clip:

Comment: More than just a good duping - G.W. was Bushwhacked!

Bidenflation: Gas prices shatter records for the 11th consecutive day

California gas prices Menlo Park, California • March 21, 2022
The national average price for a gallon of regular gas shattered records for the 11th consecutive day Friday, as the policies of the Biden administration continue to wreak havoc on working-class Americans.

A gallon of regular gas averaged $4.593 Friday, the American Automobile Association (AAA) reported, marking another jump from Thursday's tenth consecutive record-setting day when national prices hovered at $4.589, as Breitbart News documented. Mid-grade gas and premium gas averaged at $4.956 and $5.236, respectively, on Friday.

Democrat-run California had the most exorbitant prices in the country Friday at a state-record $6.064 for a gallon of regular - the only state in the country to eclipse the shocking six-dollar milestone, according to AAA.

Per AAA, the following states round out the top in terms of the highest prices in the nation - all of which broke their respective records Friday, spare Nevada:
  • Hawaii - $5.370 - Nevada - $5.240 - Washington - $5.196 - Alaska - $5.174 - Oregon - $5.141
  • Illinois - $4.98 - New York - $4.919 - Arizona - $4.861 - New Jersey - $4.776
The Biden administration has repeatedly laid the blame for the extreme costs with Russia and the President Vladimir Putin for his invasion of Ukraine. When asked about record-setting gas prices in March, Biden's response was can't "do much right now" and claimed that "Russia is responsible," as Breitbart News noted at the time.

"When reporters asked Biden what his message to Americans suffering the effects of high gas prices was, he replied, 'They're going to go up,'" Breitbart News reported.

During an exchange with Sen Josh Hawley (R-MO) on Thursday, Secretary of Energy Jennifer Granholm again deflected responsibility for the price at the pump, telling the senator that he "can thank the activity of Vladimir Putin for invading Ukraine," as Breitbart News reported.

Comment: Since COVID is no longer the gatekeeper, rising gas prices are the new lockdown on mobility.
