Higher Up Than The President of the United States

IMG_1694During my recent apartment hunt in Manhattan one of the brokers I was working with used this phrase. She wasnt talking about special interest money or payback of political favors; she was talking exactly about that, someone or group with more power than the President. What prompted the conversation was our talking about September 11th. She told me about 2 friends of hers. One worked for Morgan Stanley, who told her that everyone at MS had the day off on 9/11. At that time Morgan Stanley offices were in 7 World Trade Center. The other friend she told me about worked in the Twin Towers and was one of those people covered in soot. That friend told her about hearing bombs go off on the lower floors of the Towers before they fell. I personally saw on live TV smoke pouring out of the bottom of the buildings before they fell. Live TV reporters told of hearing explosions before the buildings fell. When you saw the look on George Bush’s face you could certainly tell he had nothing to do with this, he looked scared shitless. Now I am not a conspiracy theory kind of person but some stories pique my interest. I read a book by Jessie Ventura who went into great detail about how 9/11 was a completely planned event and that we have not been told the truth about what really happened that day.  Who would have more power than the President of the United States of America? The CIA.

I was just walking around my new neighborhood and saw Princess Diana on the cover. My first thought was, 16 years later they are still trying to use her image to sell magazines. But she had been on my mind the last few weeks. I found a book as I was getting ready to move regarding her death and how it was a set up. I think most of us dont think enough. Of course it was a hit, murder. Unfortunately the book was so boring I couldnt get through much of it but the concept itself is one that no one would think of. Diana was murdered. Just like thinking about people in the U.S. government knowing about 9/11 before hand seems so outrageous. But, what if its not? The fact is one day Diana would be the mother of the King of England. At the time of her death she was, by some accounts, on the verge of marrying Dodi Al Fayed. This was known throughout the Palace and deemed unacceptable. What if the King of England had a brown skinned Muslim half brother? They never would have allowed that to happen. When I say ‘they’ I don’t mean the Queen or her husband; their are layers and layers of people who work for the Royal Family who could have arranged this hit. Also its rumored that MI6 and the CIA were involved. If you look at the evidence it tells a very different story than what was told to the world. The amount of alcohol in the drivers system would make someone unable to walk let alone drive a car. There were other cars on the scene that police didnt pursue. This was no accident, Diana was too unpredictable to have around so someone made a decision to eliminate her. The point here isnt whether you believe this or not, the point is we all burry our heads in the sand and rule out that something like this could happen. I am asking you to open your minds that things like this happen all the time.

Jessie Ventura also goes into other conspiracies with some interesting facts. JFK killed by Lee Harvey Oswald? Thats such a ridiculous claim that it boggles the mind that thats what most people think. Few know there was a Congressional Inquiry into his death in the 1970s and the ruling was “someone else was probably involved.” The President of the United States is assassinated on live TV and no one wants to get to the bottom of it? How is that even possible? Why is it that the American people dont demand answers. Our President is killed and we really dont investigate properly. Maybe its like 9/11 where there was so much shock and surprise people werent able to even ask the right questions. It’s Ventura’s belief that the CIA and Mafia had JFK killed because he was getting too close to Cuba and perhaps opening a door they didnt want open. Interestingly Ventura believes that Nixon was brought down by the CIA because he was asking too many questions about the Kennedy assassination so they set him up.

Do we live in a world that we know, or do we take what we are told and just believe it? The point of this piece is to open people’s minds about what could be going on right under our noses and since its so outrageous we disregard facts. A magic bullet? I dont think so.

To me its more interesting to think of why? Why would any part of the U.S. government have wanted 9/11 to happen? I certainly dont think Bush or Cheney were involved, but what was the motives of these people? To have us on a constant war footing? To take away personal liberty and freedom? I dont know.

What I do know is that a lot more goes on than we the average citizen knows about.

A #MustRead Letter to the Editor from a Follower #Military #Unemployment Media Ignoring Longterm Unemployed

A follower of mine sent me this letter she sent in to a newspaper; the newspaper edited out the most important parts of the letter so I am publishing the full text. This letter brings up so many valid and important issues that are completely ignored by Congress, the Media, the President, by everyone. Here is an excellent reminder:

IMG_1640“Letter to the Editor”


It was interesting to see your front page story yesterday regarding $1 Billion being “found,” and furloughed workers getting back their 5th day of work per week.


Forgive me, but day after day we read articles and heard news reports about workers who lost one day of work per week for a period of time, while people such as myself cannot find a job, at all.


I was recently laid off from a management position with an IT start-up that didn’t have its financial ducks in a row.  Because I worked for such a short period of time, and hadn’t worked for a number of months previously, I was not eligible for unemployment benefits.  Since then, I was offered a contract with a local defense contractor, and while waiting to receive the contract, they decided to cancel it.


No unemployment benefits, savings gone, about to apply for food stamps, maybe welfare…..  and, in addition, I am an ex military spouse.  I left my own career to support the career of my now ex-husband, and when I need it the most, I cannot find a stable job in order to support myself.


When is the same level of attention by the paper, and others, going to be given to people who are on the verge of financial collapse because they can’t find work?


And, even more so, when is the same level of attention going to be given to military spouses who “did their duty” by giving up their careers for the “military member,” and have no way of supporting themselves if the need arises?


A one-day-a-week furlough caused you to skip your Saturday nights out?  Forgive me, but the inability to find stable work is causing many more of us to have to decide whether to pay the rent, or buy food, or maybe even forget the rent all together and just move into the car.


Isn’t it time to focus on the people who are really struggling?




Even Under Contract The #Manor Gets Daily Requests

My real estate broker told me yesterday that she gets at least 2 email requests about my house, with people wanting to see it, buy it, buy it without even seeing it. Each state has different real estate laws, in New York state once a house goes into contract the buyers must put up a 10% deposit that they will lose should they back out. Once I signed the agreement I am bound legally to sell the house within a 2 month time frame. I think its wild, and complementary, that people are still asking to see it. I have already rented a new apartment back in Manhattan where I had lived for almost 20 years before deciding a brownstone would be fun. In New York the sale is complete at the closing, which will be in the next week or 2. Now I have to find movers to pack and move my things. Below are some pics of the #Manor, one pic is how it looked in 1940. Imagefront DR
