My Shadow is buying himself or…

shadow money order

Sorry, this is just another of those annoying “for the record” posts. Long time readers will remember “my shadow” who stole my identity as early as the mid-late 1970s or early 1980s.

After a break, it’s happened again. Another installment of $100.00. It’s always the same. I declare these on the blog, put them into my checking account, and will include these in my taxes. I take pictures of them with all the numbers so that they can be tracked. It’s his hand-writing. Am I extorting him? Is he bribing me? Is it something more innocent? More nefarious? The only hint is that he said it’s all he can afford right now, meaning that he thinks it warrants a lot more than $100.00 a month on average. I don’t want this, but, hey, I’ll take it.

I did tell him that I wanted to make a deal with him without saying what that was, and without asking, he started sending me $100.00 money orders. But the deal I had to make with him had nothing to with money, but rather with Main State at the Department of State at Foggy Bottom just off the West end of the National Mall. Inasmuch as I don’t understand what’s going on it’s only going to get worse, because I’ll keep pushing until things are clarified. My Shadow is not one for clarifying anything. It might do us both in. But that might be better for the world.

Oh. And just a reminder, as of this writing…

Update: DHS / Main State P-M Affairs: “Who are you anyway ‘Father Byers’?!”

IMG_20170310_095535

Well, well. That’s interesting. The post going by the above title was scrubbed from the blog. Maybe it’s just a computer glitch. Anyway, my “I-9” went through without further questions. So, whatever. It simply doesn’t matter. I now continue with other aspects of tax withholding, setting up direct deposits, etc…

I had one other experience like this. My “Shadow” and I were texting back and forth for the first time ever not all that long ago. Then his phone was stolen. That texting “conversation” was shown to the police by the thief (perhaps she said she “found it”) as it looked – how to say it? – suspicious. It contained the name and number of a guy in Main State’s Political-Military Affairs, a guy with a six billion dollar budget who coordinates between the Pentagon and various… um… groups, and who dreams up and runs drug and gun and security related programs in various countries (and whose successor is now an Obama appointee, an Ambassador now with no direct superior perhaps for the rest of the Trump presidency…). That’s one less level between the President and some… um… programs… It was a predecessor directing this office who had written me a two page official letter already decades ago. Anyway, the police called my “Shadow” to come pick up his phone. He told me it was totally scrubbed and unusable. But, he was not detained or questioned. You gotta love that.

But now there is another developing problem, scrubbed phone or not, since my “Shadow”, seemingly following up on that texting, began sending me instantaneously traceable money-orders, each for $100. I just now got the fourth one.

  • On the one hand: Is he doing reparation for having become my “Shadow” way back in the day (that’s not the kind of reparation I want at all)? Or is he helping out a priest whom he considers to be poor (though I’m not in dire straits at all)? Either of those would, I guess, be well-intentioned. And I very much appreciate that. Very thoughtful. Very kind.
  • On the other hand: Perhaps someone might form an opinion that this is a result of blackmail or extortion against him on my part. That’s simply not the case either. As I get to know him better, I wish him the best. And I would anyway. After all, he’s my “Shadow.” And anyway, I always report this kind of “personal gift” on the blog, for-the-record, as is my practice. But he also knows that. Back to number one?
  • But it would also be good for him to stop this money-order thing, as it could also look like bribery on his part, kind of a reverse blackmail/extortion, so that, in receiving said monies, I had better keep my mouth shut, or else, from any number of directions. The question to a growing number of people would then be, about what is he so concerned? So, I suggest to my “Shadow” that the money-order thing just stops in the best interests of everyone however good and excellent and totally innocent the intentions have been in providing these monies.

Anyway, he knows what I want, and it’s not from him, it’s from P.-M. of Main State. I still want that. It would put a kind of double reverse on civil effects of big drug-money concerns as I entrench myself in cleaning up some of that bit of evil in this region.

My shadow should be the attorney for Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman

Note the gunshot wound from the other day on the right arm.

I went to see my “shadow”, as I call him, leaving 7:30 PM Monday and returning today, Wednesday, at 6:00 AM, with Tuesday being my “day off.” The odometer’s “thousands” marker was clicking around. The conversation we had was short and to the point, just 15 minutes tops. I obtained some new methods of contact as the others had been rendered inoperable. Things are easier when using modern methods of communication.

I wanted him to testify against Guzman, but he refused, saying his knowledge was minimal. I tried to say that anything helps, and that Guzman’s a monster, having had 30,000 people killed directly by the Sinaloa Cartel with a total of 100,000 dead in skirmishes. That took him back for a moment, not the facts mind you, but that he had been caught out without having a response. But that came in just a moment:

His was a line which betrays a forced rationalization of having Guzman as a puppet for the U.S.: “But it doesn’t really matter since the Mexican people hold him up to be a kind of folk hero, you know, like Billy the Kid or something.” “Or like Ned Kelly for the Australians,” I said, with him mumbling some other American names.

I said, “It’s not like that at all. This guy butchers people. They’re afraid of him. They cheer him in the streets but would shoot him in the back if they could. He has ears everywhere. They can’t trust anyone because he owns all the authorities. With all that death, it does matter.”

He just repeated his line by which it seems the State Department convinces any oversight that: “Look, there is no worry, as no one complains, because the Mexican people hold Guzman to be a folk hero. It’s O.K.” Again, the “benefit” to these United States for having set up Guzman is that we destabilize a neighboring country just enough where they can’t get any real economy going.

There’s lots of Spanish Moss where my shadow lives.

My Mexican friends tell me that there are horrific battles going on right now in Mexico as a power grab is taking place what with Guzman in prison. They think that Guzman can’t pay off prison authorities in these USA so that he might run the cartel from there. We’ll see…

bullet-wound

Meanwhile, I’m concerned about the welfare of my shadow. He says that he was hurt recently, showing me his arm. He said he had been burned but it was obvious that it is a gunshot wound, not self-inflicted as the bullet grazed deeply starting from the upper to the inner arm. It’s really quite deep. You can see  how the surrounding skin was exploded and ripped to the lower left, and the jagged exit from the now splayed bullet.

CIA Memorial Wall. Paying respect to the fallen. It’s a debt of honor. Bucket list.

cia-memorial-wall

The CIA Memorial Wall is now a priority. A must visit.

CIA MEMORIAL LANGLEY

I always knew I was indebted to the CIA not only as a citizen of these United States, but in particular, having recently found out more about my life with The Company.

It was confirmed for me just now that a new friend of mine of a couple of months ago is CIA. He knows everything about my “case,” offering present day advice.

Another longtime CIA friend confirmed that one guy working for the State Department who has been protecting me since at least the early-mid 1980s is, in fact, today, a Station Chief for the CIA. He said that when I told him what and where his present cover is directly under the POTUS. He knew the story. Trump will fire him forthwith, of course, in a matter of hours as of this writing, but – nothing being as it seems – that firing will actually only free him up to go up higher in the directorship of the CIA. I don’t doubt that he even takes over the job of the guy taking care of my “case” at Main State of the Dept. of State, using that as his cover, three down from the POTUS, but doing what he does best in coordination of the executive branch with the judiciary and the military for on the ground ops. But, that’s not a prediction. I don’t know. Anyway, I need to have a chat with him about a present situation. But I have to wait to see where he ends up in the next few days.

As always, the more I find out about myself, the more I don’t know, the more questions there are that arise. Fine. I can work with that. All these guys are the best of the best, exemplary in their integrity, who have earned profound respect. In getting to know them, I get to know America and, in a round-about-way, myself, being a patriot and all.

Some have died in the line of duty. The debt of honor in paying respect to them is not to say that they are great so much as to strive to follow their example. Nothing Kryptos about that at all. Thanks to you all.

*NOC*NOC* “Who’s there?” “Fear.” “Fear who?”

noc

N.O.C. – I pass by this sign all the time. It will soon be a frozen ghost town in the middle of nowhere in the mountains. In some rather arcane circles, the letters N.O.C. also stand for Non-Official Cover, the rather obnoxious title for “illegals,” who are neither illegal (at least for us), nor non-official (at least for us), and whose only cover (usually business and politics) might be playing the self-referential fool, kind of like the Holy Roman Empire which was not Holy, nor Roman, nor an Empire.

At any rate, being an illegal, a NOC, usually, is nothing Kryptos. But that’s the problem. It should be everything Kryptos. Can anyone figure out terrorist initiative without being Kryptos? No, not without being Kryptos, at least my version of it, you know, taking into consideration the geological and mathematical elements physically represented and begging to be brought into one’s heart of hearts. What’s an analyst without it? Just someone manipulated by others. Not being at the heart of Kryptos is all play. An analyst might get lucky once in a while without being at the heart of all, but once in a while isn’t good enough. In fact, it makes one vulnerable to being used, the most dangerous NOC of all. All NOCs should be Kryptos.

It’s kind of like the difference between being “spiritual” and religious, as if those who are religious are not at all spiritual. The “spiritual” but not religious person is a faker, the most dangerous person of all. They congratulate themselves for being, you know, nice, sharing some supposedly common value, say, of niceness, that one supposes some spiritual power somewhere out in outer-space might appreciate in a heartless, mindless, but, you know, nice way. As often as not, it’s psychologism replacing a truly spiritual life. And that’s a licence to murder: “The god of my creation is on my side.” That’s when right and wrong lose the integrity of black and white and become 50 shades of self-serving gray, lusting for the power that covers the innocent in the red blood if death. Is that still called integrity? Integrity demands excellence. It’s the harder option, but is always worth it.

Excellence demands smarts and guts. True religion frees one from fear of being smart and from fear of having guts. One can face reality head on. It’s exhilarating. NOCs should give it a try. Those who insist “Gray is good for integrity” are low-life scum, you know, the ultra sophisticated creepo guys who have gone all Gnostic about “gray”. Having been had, betrayed, almost killed however many times, having seen killings even by the hundreds, having killed many… none of that means facing reality head on. It just means one has had those experiences which, however much they may put an edge on someone, do not of themselves make anyone less fearful of the big picture, perhaps more. Only watching God take our place in tortured death so as to have the right in his own justice to demand forgiveness can be the occasion for for one not to run away from seeing the big picture: “Father, forgive them.”

Meanwhile, the truly religious person lives out the ultimate virtue of justice, namely, religion, namely, giving to God that which is God’s due: “Thank you, God, for having this otherwise useless heap of weakness live what is reasonable and just in service of you and others, even if it means I have to lay down my life that others might live for that which is reasonable and just, for you.” Doing the religious thing, say, going to Mass, the Last Supper united with Calvary (see Kryptos) – This is my body given for you in Sacrifice, my blood poured out for you in Sacrifice – giving to God that which is his due in all justice, he himself standing in our stead to take on the death we deserve for original sin and whatever personal sin so that he might have the right in his own justice to have mercy on us… yes, that is also spiritual and brings one without fear into the heart of all.

And that’s deadly important: no fear. The merely “spiritual” person is full of fear. They are on the run from themselves. Such an analyst might fill his waking hours and his nightmares with innumerable facts, all so intriguing with their interconnectedness or not, and the adrenaline rush had by someone who lives the fake-news cycle, thinking they are it, you know, special. Such a person doesn’t want to get to the heart of all. They are afraid. They paint themselves into the peripheries so that they can’t see the way things really are, however much violence and injustice they otherwise see.

But for the religious person who is truly spiritual there is no fear of finding the answer in oneself when looking for the terrorist, and one can find that terrorist, even in the early stages, well, pretty much every time as quick as quick can be. In Jerusalem I did this for recreation. Starting from scratch, one could get a stop-watch and see how many minutes it would take me to get the personal contact info of someone personally named on our terrorist list. My record on the street is, I think, eight minutes. That was in Jerusalem, but the head terrorist guy for whom I got the contact info was in Syria. Then you see who those guys know in Jerusalem, etc. I’m not tooting my own horn here, as my point is that anyone can do this if you’re not afraid to see what is right in front of you. Fakers not only waste everyone’s time, they bring everyone down with them: “We didn’t think it was important.” Compared to what is the question. What’s the standard of importance, of urgency, of whether something means something? When the importance of fake-religion (e.g. ISIS rubbish) is dismissed, successful terrorism ensues. One cannot see the importance of fake-religion unless one sees the importance of true religion. One cannot see the importance of true religion unless one lives it with integrity.

John Kerry’s bogus speech 28 Dec 2016

john-kerry

John Kerry’s passionate speech (like my one-on-one 15 minutes with him in the Vatican Gardens), was entirely anachronistic, living in the past, utterly suppressing present day realities of these U.S.A. helping Iran wipe Israel off the face of the earth with Iran’s increasingly aggressive nuclear program.

The two-state-solution means nothing if one of those states is dying from the cancer subsequent to nuclear fallout, also making the land unlivable for the other state. Everything under the Obama Administration, anything touched by this Secretary of State, is deadly for Israel and the Jewish people.

There are a thousand ambiguities and openings to terrorism in the speech. How many times was it referenced that moving forward in whatever way would only involve a not-significant risk to security? What on earth does that mean? How many terrorist incidents would be allowed under the high bar of “not-significant”? What does that even mean when people are getting killed? On and on. Is Russia really a best friend of Israel in the region? Unbelievable…

I have to wonder if the analysts who had input into that speech were conspiring to go out of their way to make Kerry look like a clown in hopes of getting promotions under the upcoming Administration. I mean, really, it’s just that bad, and, I’m afraid, just that easy to do. It’s just too easy.
