Beautiful treat to listen to: The Faith - sung by Leonard Cohen and Anjani

The Faith is one of my favorite songs--it speaks to the depths of the heart. Leonard Cohen wrote the lyrics for this song, which uses the melody of the Canadian folk song "Un Canadien Errant", written in 1842.   The lyrics appear on screen in the following beautiful video.  As with many of Leonard's songs, people have conjectured about who the lyrics are addressed to.  It seems to me that Leonard is talking to all of us -- and especially to those who are seeking real Truth in a world that often seems so false.  The lyrics seem to suggest that perhaps when we are weary enough, we will look for what is real and lasting, beyond the passing appearances in our ever-wearying world. With the planet itself now in jeopardy from humans following the wrong path, we must hope that more people will hear the plea of poets/teachers like Leonard Cohen -- and follow their lead.

Randy Rainbow's Latest Song Parodies about Trump

Thank God for Randy Rainbow, who can still find humor in the Master of Disaster now occupying our nation's White House.  It's amazing to consider that all the things Randy sings about are actual events/stories/happenings taking place with the President of our country (!)Donald Trump is our President--to our everlasting shame!

Here are more Randy Rainbow video satirical parodies on Trump. We oh-so-much need the laughs to balance our tears:     If You Ever Got Impeached  Melania - Just Be Best     All About His Base   Covfefe    Russia Ties

More to come re. Jeffrey Epstein sexual predator case and its coverup

The uncovering of this predatory sexual abuse of children by powerful men may lead to others, even more famous/infamous, that have been hidden from the public over the years.  So much to learn -- even while the funeral of one predator is taking place in Washington at this moment, with great fanfare and high praising eulogies.  I can't help thinking of Leonard Cohen's song "Anthem" -- "I can't run no more with that Godless crowd, while the killers in high places say their prayers out loud. Well, they've summoned up a thundercloud, and they're going to hear from me!"   

I am hoping Rachel Maddow and other strong, committed-to-truth journalists keep bringing news to the world about these dark lords who have been hiding their real natures from the public for far too long.  Slowly but surely, the rocks are being overturned, and the creepy crawlers are being revealed, scurrying to get out of the light being shined on them.

The Real George H.W.Bush is hidden from us as he is praised and eulogized

George H.W.Bush is a sexual offender of the worst kind -- not too much of this information has come out, but I believe it can't be hidden forever.  Just the tip of the iceberg is being revealed about his real nature (and he's not just a "harmless old fool")-- he's been accused by girls and boys who were abused over many years in a sexual abuse ring conducted by some of the most powerful men in our country, including Bush.  Those who have tried to get the story out in the past have been cut off immediately and their stories hushed up in all ways possible.  Recently, the following was told in our daily news about "Poppy Bush" as he grabbed women's buttocks while having his photo taken with them (even while sitting in his wheelchair). Everyone laughed as he made a joke about "David Cop-a-feel", but it is nothing to laugh about:  But much worse has yet to be told about him and other powerful leaders and of their involvement in sex abuse rings of children.

Tonight, on her MSNBC show, Rachel Maddow told about a trial taking place tomorrow in a Miami courtroom that will be televised -- re. the coverup of years of sex abuse of young girls by Jeffrey Epstein (and co-conspirators -- other powerful men like Prince Andrew of England, Bill Clinton, Donald Trump, and others).  Epstein, though positively proven to be guilty, was let off with a slap on the wrist... more information like this should be forthcoming, but it will be slow..slow...drip, drip, drip.  I learned a lot over the years in hearing major figures in state and federal government -- even a high figure in the FBI -- speaking at conferences, trying to get the truth out about these sexual crimes, some of which even took place in the White House.  One news article that escaped for a brief moment the rigors of slapdown and was actually published, is available to read in original form online:  The Washington Times published a revealing, front-page story on the Franklin case and its related child sex abuse ring. For a transcript of this news article and link to a scanned original, click here.  

Here is more information for those who are interested -- it is very dark news, for sure -- but little by little the truth will out.  Read more at: about a Discovery Channel documentary all ready to be aired (even already advertised in its slot in TV Guide) in May 1994 -- but which was suddenly pulled with no reason given -- and not allowed to be aired. Someone in high places decided the public should not be shown this documentary.  It has been retrieved and can be seen online -- read more at:

Finally, some information like Rachel Maddow's revelation tonight, is seeping out from under the rocks.  So much is hidden, so much is still to be revealed to the public at large.  We are finding out we are not the country we thought we were...and there is more to be discovered and released.  Rachel's pointing to the Florida trial beginning tomorrow is just the tip of a giant iceberg about sexual crimes in our government.  It is similar to what has been and still is being revealed about the Catholic Church's priests' abuse of children.  

Sorry to be the purveyor of this kind of news, but, if we want to keep our democratic form of government, it's better to know the truth than to remain in ignorance and allow these kinds of crimes to be perpetrated over and over.  I'm grateful to Rachel Maddow for being a rare journalist who thinks the absolute truth should be told to "We, the People."  While other reporters look the other way about news of this type, Rachel (and Lawrence O'Donnell) go straight to the root, knowing that is the only way to clear the decks of our country--and to make it possible for us to really have the kind of country we want for our children and grandchildren.

If you would rather not hear about the dark side in news like this, let me know and I won't send you this kind of information again.  I prefer to look toward the Light, but think it is important for us to know what is being hidden from us so we can shine the Light on it.

A special treat from heaven: The Voice of an Angel - Eva Cassidy

Eva Cassidy was only 33 when she died of cancer in 1996. She was unknown to the world at the time, but her voice now lives on all over the globe, having been discovered after her death and made known worldwide from her recordings.  I have loved Eva's singing ever since first hearing the album of her songs, Songbird, several years ago. She truly had the voice of an angel.  Here are two of her most beautiful songs. Her version of Over the Rainbow is the best I've ever heard. Just close your eyes and listen to her -- I think you will feel as if you have been transported to the heavenly realms:

If you would like to know more about Eva, ABC Nightline did a special 18 minute show on her -- a labor of love by one of the people associated with the show, who was in love with her singing. Eva was an independent person, singing only the songs she really connected with. They ranged over jazz, gospel, blues and standards -- just about every venue, but she would sing only the songs she herself loved. She couldn't be categorized, which was one of the reasons she didn't become well known while alive. Record producers didn't know how to market her, so they passed on signing her -- much to their sorrow and regret later.

Here's the link to the ABC Nightline show:
