The President of Cliche's

Empty words, phrases passing like ghosts. The horrible look in his eyes, that his insecurity is so powerful that he would shatter like glass..if he faced the fact that he is a disconnected liar.

There was no question that if you look at Humphrey Bogart in "The Caine Mutiny" as he sits on the stand flexing those steel balls in his sweaty palms, you see poor George Bush.

One Cliche, one empty word after another. George Bush in his speech tonight could not connect, and has a disconnect from his feeling life to his thought life. He honestly believes and lives in the cliche's that his whole Limbaugh voter base are full of. GWB is the perfect example of Word and Letter recognition errors that root themselves into the karma of the Archangel and the connection of the human I to itself and thought.

What is empty, and Hollow and part of the Hollow Man paradigm are the walking cliche'ridden soul. How do you observe the empty being who has disconnected from his thought and his heart. Can you see it heart it and understand exactly what loss of Archangelic connection to I AMness means? His heart, GWB lives in highly potent cliche's. These cliches are empty of I Am penetration or cognition. They are hollow words husks, Abstract Woodrow Wilson Wodden apples that certainly someone else had to write for him.

Little chopped sentences and disconnected from what is happening around him as reality is the signature of displaced I AM capacity to Angel and Archangel. We ask what good is Letter recognition, in 1st grade reading? It connects the letters, imbues the letters with warm life and connects the imagination, interest, etheric body and living nerve strands to how interst and intelligence will build the foundations to Living Words, Living thoughts, and Living Sentences crafted from a Living I AM as the child develops.

President Bush hides, wallows and cowers in cliche. His words are disconnected from his feelings. His feelings are disconnected from his thoughts. His is the horrific American split between what are thoughts and what are acts of will. It was Nathanial Hawthorne that depicted this terrible potential of split between the triadic structure of the soul to a total dualism. Will actions severed from either feeling or Thought or Thought abstracted from deeds was depicted as a pathological potential in American soul life. This Hawthorne thought was the terrible dualism and split that Americans could encounter. Here in the White House is a Prime Goethean Example and we need to look carefully at this.

George Bush has no living relation to language and Thought. We have had many discussions about retarded beings and how the Archangels cannot connect souls properly to their Country, their language and the thoughts that serve the I AM. Review in your mind's eye the GWB current catastrophe. Ghostly cliche's haunt his face. He has never connected to the American Resonating folk and his feelings are locked away from his thought. He has never found his way to the spirit in the word or the spirit of language. This example should reveaL MORE than politics. It reveals how the retarded forces of GWB incarnation did not give him the Archangelic forces to connect to the Language and thought forces in the Word.

Little pecks, squirts, chops at words and ideas, void of cohesion, disconnected from reality is everywhere telling in this Man. What death feels like, what hurt, doubt, lie, fear, and overview of the world, as the world sees him and exactly what the world thinks of the U.S. these are all abstract, weak Egoless, severed from Archangelic Beings and falling into full observation of a Retarded, ugly American, lost in the cliche's of his divided soul life. There it is, there is no doubt. Look at what lack of Letter recognition and Archangelic connection reveals, blatantly about a whole segment of humanity. The Bush voter Base.

No self observation, no how does he look or sound in his own self perception. Self perception of Self. GWB had a mechanical relation to Mistakes or Dead People and those people who cry need hugs... boo hoo, there was no streaming up from his heart into his eyes to see the crisis in the hearts of America and sharing the burden with them. Instead some Stiff Wooden cliche's are once more pumped out into the public. Why? We are looking at an Archangelic disconnect in Karma. Look at it carefully Michael School, look at it carefully.

Why? Because here is a perfect example of Letters, Word Forms, Warmth of Word foundation and horrifically difficult retardation in relation to Language, thought and the Archangelic etheric forces. If you look ever closer to the core of this issue you will see exactly why the handlers and brotherhoods have let this cardboard human being represent America. This is why we can say exactly Judaism, Islam and Christian fundamentalism is all based on hypocrisy and heading to become a race, bred on cliche and hollow, empty phrases, ripe for Orwellian plucking. See it, See it and know it!

Rush Limbaugh and Ditto Heads and the voter base of George are all American ignorant funadmentalists, cliche ridden rejects from any Archangelic integration and cohesion. In other words, as the I Am went over the threshold, it was judged by the gods themselves to feel just how deeply a person found truth, clarity and substance in what they believed and felt in life. If all of the beliefs were abstract, the Archangelic Beings see a severe or not so severe disconnect and the inner capacity for language, thought and integration of the I Am in the region of Thinking, Feeling, and Will are left riddled with hindrance instead of illuminated by intuition. This is deadly, deadly serious stuff and we must learn exactly what Steiner meant by Woodrow Wilson and the person who is speaking.

This has everything to do with training observation of how Speech and Thought connect to Language and how this is built into the learning process of Letters, warmed up as pictures that link to the unfolding of how the I AM will use thought and love words as it grows. This is fairly serious and behind the seriousness are perceptions of the Etheric body and perceptions we cannot afford to pass over without comment.

Turning flaws or strengths into clear cut examples are looking at the Speech or word play of GWB tonight and again, it was an example of disconnect and retardation of the very core issues of Language, feeling, thought and word that ends up as a religion fueled by abstract cliche. It feeds men and women who are made of straw who cannot discern the depth of true words and thoughts against hollow, disconnected words. It is time to look at the higher twelvefold structure of Word, Thought and Idea, as part of connecting the child to Word and Letter recognition warmed with early etheric heart forces.

This is deadly serious in education. It is now deadly serious in Politics and the Potential of World domination from the West proves what Europe understand about GWB, he is as disconnected from reality as Caine in "The Caine Mutiny" was.

This showing tonight is going to be a nightmare for the Bush administration I think. Looking at Ms. Rice and Mr. Rove in the corner was very telling as well. What scowls. Whew.

And you are right Bradford, it was empty words until the very end when he commented from his heart. And I can admire that even though it is not what I want in one who holds the world just about in his hands.

I was shocked he was so blatant about the need to change the world. This is why he went into Iraq besides the other points. I have no doubt he and that administration really thought they would conqure Iraq and then there would be peace and because they control Saudia Arabia, Kuwaiti and a few other nations over there they really thought we would then be kings of the world in all ways. And it has not nor will it work out in this manner or at least it seems to me.

I agree with the very end. I had the same observation that he saw the end of this time in front of the world, his prime time, and saw the end of this torture for him and cohesed a few words and thoughts to exit on.

But condi and rove, they looked like grey death, nearly sinking in their chairs. In my link over and previous comments on 21st Century in Retrograde, there are thoughts that indicate, to me, that the intention is not to ever leave that region or form a real Democracy. It is an amassing of a self worked in fundamental illusion of a kind of Armageddonizing by way of Beirut destructionism and Oil.

His base and the base of thought everywhere is Fundamentalistic Islam, Judaism and Christianity wrapped in a ball of hypocrisy and it is all intention that remains illusive to the total sway of hypocrisy.

Media Struggles To Pretend Bush Is Actually The President

I'm no stenographer, so you'll have to wait for the actual transcript, which is bound to be the most embarrassing document to the United States government since the Pentagon Papers. But here are the exerpts I could take, in between laughing and calling everyone I know, saying: "Can you believe this idiot is the fucking president of the United States?" So, again, these quotes are not exact. But, they might as well be:

Why did we tell the United Nations we were prepared to go it alone:

The war on terror required that people had to come together, and work together.

What about the administration estimate that the war in Iraq would cost the American people $1.7 billion as opposed to the nearly $200 billion we've paid?

The oil revenues are bigger than we thought.

Are you insane?:

I wouldn't be happy if i were occupied, either.

Knowing what you know now about 9/11, do you think there are any errors you made?:

The country wasn't on a war footing and that's just a fact. No one could envision the enemy flying airplanes into buildings. And the world is better off without Saddam Hussein.

Why don't you know what hell you're doing or what it was that you're thinking:

I expect to get valid information.

What's your biggest mistake?:

Ah, John, I, ah, um, ah...I still would have called on the world to deal with Saddam Hussein. The WMD could still be there, like the fifty tons of mustard gas in the turkey farm.

Other quotes showing his compassion and resolve:

Like Willy Wonka, I test the children of the world looking for a good deed in a weary world.

Like a viagra enhanced crotch, we will remain steadfast and strong.

And, the game winner:

No one likes to see dead people on their televisions.

Like an idiot, I am currently watching the post spaz out commentary and it's hilarious. I think. Maybe not. I'm watching news commentators and politicians and they're all pretending that the embarrassing, stuttering, rambling, dumbfest I just watched was like a regular press conference with good points, and answered questions, and, I don't know...stuff.

It reminds me of how the mainstream media pretended for several years that Bush actually got elected, and then, even when that became silly, pretended that he was qualified to be president, anyway.

This is high comedy, watching these yutzes--one of them just used the phrase "with great convinction" -- pretend that we just witnessed a "president" address the nation, that we just witnessed a "world leader" answer the questions posed to him.

It's hilarious. It's scary. We just watched a babbling, incoherent, sweating bafoon, who looked more like a kid called on to give a report of a book he hadn't read than the president of the United States."

Media Struggles To Pretend Bush Is Actually The President

GBW is a hangman with mediocre intellectual endowment. No match for Ronald Reagan's charm, the Teflon Man. GBW never had the brains to think out any policy. It's National Security Advisor Dr. Condoleezza Rice. She's top educated, commands five or six languages, knows everything about the arts, about sports, etc. has written books about political history, and is a political science professor. It's easy to look at GBW's face and listen to his struggle to pronounce words containing more than two syllables. No political action is taken without dr Rice's suggestion or approval. So who is she?

http://www.whitehouse.gov/nsc/ricebio.html

Did you notice at the hearing how she kept this optimistic smile throughout, explaining everything with such self-assurance and confidence? What kind of human being are we dealing with here, and what's her motive?

Bradford must comment;

If you are a student of the Michael School, this is a must read. Sorry, it is a must. Here we have just seen George Bush at his Press Conference, at least some of us, but what is important is what I placed as my best Goethean guess on the observation. Now your Michael School insights should be able to connect the dots. If you cannot connect the dots, then ask friggin questions. We are looking into a mighty, mighty mystery and it is as hot as the news and as stunning as Armageddon assembled for the Fundamentalistic hatred breeding in all forms. People of the Michael School, this is a must contemplation.

R.S.

http://wn.elib.com/Steiner/Lectures/19231111p01.html

"If a child, on entering primary school, is introduced to a highly sophisticated system of letter-forms which he has to learn as a ... b ... c etc., this has nothing whatever to do with his heart and soul. It has no relation to them at all. What the child develops in his head, in his soul, in that he has to learn a … b ... c, is — speaking spiritually — a parasite in human nature.

During his years of education a great deal is brought to the child of this parasitic nature. We must, therefore, develop an art of education which works creatively from his soul. We must let the child bring colour into form; and the colour-forms, which have arisen out of joy, out of enthusiasm, out of sadness, out of every possible feeling, these he can paint on to the paper. When a child puts on to the paper what arises out of his soul, this develops his humanity. This produces nothing parasitic."

(........)

"In the course of long centuries something very strange has come to pass for earthly humanity. No longer is it possible for all the forces of human misunderstanding and human hatred to be used up in new human forms, in the structure of new human bodies. Something has become left over. During the course of the last centuries this residue has streamed down on to the earth, so that in the spiritual atmosphere of the earth, in what I may call the earth's astral light, there is to be found an infiltration of the impulses of human hatred and human misunderstanding which exist exterior to man.

These impulses have not been incorporated into human forms; they stream around the earth in the astral light. They work into man, but not into what makes up the single person but into the relationships which people form with one another on the earth. They work into civilization. And within civilization they have brought about what compelled me to say, in the spring of 1914 in Vienna, [* The Inner Nature of Man and Life between Death and Rebirth (Rudolf Steiner Press).] that our present-day civilization is invaded by spiritual carcinoma, by a spiritual cancerous disease, by spiritual tumours.

At that time the fact that this was spoken about in Vienna — in the lecture-course dealing with the phenomena between death and a new birth — was somewhat unwelcome. Since then, however, people have actually experienced something of the truth of what was said at that time. Then people had no thought of what streams through civilization. They did not perceive that actual cancerous formations of civilization were present, for it was only from 1914 onwards that they manifested openly.

Today they are revealed as utterly diseased tissues of civilization. Yes, now it becomes evident to what a degree our modern civilization has been infiltrated by these currents of human hatred and human coldness which have not been used up in the forms of the human structure, to what a degree these infiltrations are active as the parasites of modern civilization.

Civilization today is deeply afflicted with parasites; it is like a part of an organism that is invaded by parasites, by bacilli. What people have amassed in the way of thoughts exists, but it has no living connection with man. Only consider how this shows itself in the most ordinary phenomena of daily life.

How many people have to learn without bringing enthusiasm to the learning; they simply have to get down to it and learn in order to pass an examination, so as to qualify for some particular post, or the like — well, for them there is no vital connection between what they have to take in and what lives in their soul as an inborn craving for the spiritual. It is exactly as though a person who is not predisposed to hunger were to be continually stuffed with food! The digestive processes about which I have spoken cannot be carried through. What has been taken in remains as ballast in the organism, finally becoming something which definitely induces parasites.

Much in our modern civilization has no connection with man. Like the mistletoe — spiritually speaking — it sucks its life from what man brings forth from the original impulses of his mind, of his heart. Much of this manifests in our civilization as parasitic existence. To anyone who has the power of seeing our civilization with spiritual vision in the astral, the year 1914 already presented an advanced stage of cancer, a carcinoma formation; for him the whole of civilization was already invaded by parasites. But to this parasitic condition something further is now added.

I have described to you in what may be called a spiritual-physiological way how, out of the nature of the gnomes and undines who work from below upwards, the possibility arises of parasitic impulses in man. Then, however, as I explained, the opposite picture presents itself; for then poison is carried downwards by the sylphs and the elemental beings of warmth. And so in a civilization like ours, which bears a parasitic character, what comes down from above — spiritual truth, though not poison in itself, is transformed into poison in man, so that our civilization rejects it in fear and invents all kinds, of reasons for this rejection.

The two things belong together: a parasitic culture below, which does not proceed from elemental laws and which therefore contains parasites within itself, and a spirituality which sinks down from above and which — in that it enters into this civilization — is taken up by man in such a way that it becomes poison. When you bear this in mind you have the key to the most important symptoms of our present-day civilization.

And when one has insight into these things, just out of itself the fact is revealed that a truly cultural education must make its appearance as the antidote or opposing remedy. Just as a rational therapy, is deduced from a true diagnosis of the individual, so a diagnosis of the sickness of a civilization reveals the remedy; the one calls forth the other.

It is very evident that mankind today again needs something from civilization which stands close to the human heart and the human soul, which springs directly from the human heart and the human soul. If a child, on entering primary school, is introduced to a highly sophisticated system of letter-forms which he has to learn as a ... b ... c etc., this has nothing whatever to do with his heart and soul. It has no relation to them at all. What the child develops in his head, in his soul, in that he has to learn a … b ... c, is — speaking spiritually — a parasite in human nature.

During his years of education a great deal is brought to the child of this parasitic nature. We must, therefore, develop an art of education which works creatively from his soul. We must let the child bring colour into form; and the colour-forms, which have arisen out of joy, out of enthusiasm, out of sadness, out of every possible feeling, these he can paint on to the paper. When a child puts on to the paper what arises out of his soul, this develops his humanity. This produces nothing parasitic. This is something which grows out of man like his fingers or his nose! — whereas, when the child has forced on him the conventional forms of the letters, which are the result of a high degree of civilization, this does engender what is parasitic.

Immediately the art of education lies close to the human heart, to the human soul, the spiritual approaches man without becoming poison. First you have the diagnosis, which finds that our age is infested with carcinomas, and then you have the therapy — yes, it is Waldorf School education.

Waldorf School education is founded upon nothing other than this, my dear friends. Its way of thinking in the cultural sphere is the same as that in the field of therapy. Here you see, applied in a special case, what I spoke about a few days ago, namely that the being of man proceeds from below upwards, from nutrition, through healing, upwards to the development of the spiritual, and that one must regard education as medicine transposed into the spiritual. This strikes us with particular clarity when we wish to find a therapy for civilization, for we can only conceive this therapy as being Waldorf School education.

You will readily be able to imagine the feelings of one who not only has insight into this situation, but who is also trying to implant Waldorf School education into the world in a practical way, when he sees in the cumulative effect of this carcinoma of civilization something which may seriously endanger this Waldorf School education, or even make it altogether impossible. We should not reject such thoughts as these, but rather make them the impulse within ourselves to work together wherever we still can in the therapy of our civilization.

There are many things today such as the following. During my Helsingfors lecture-course in 1913, I indicated from a certain aspect of spiritual knowledge a view as to the inferior nature of Woodrow Wilson, who was at that time a veritable object of veneration for much of civilized mankind and in respect of whom people are only now — because to do otherwise is impossible — gaining some measure of perception. As things went then, so have things also gone in regard to the civilization-carcinoma about which I have been speaking. Well, at that time things went in a certain way; today those things which hold good for our time are proceeding in a similar manner. People are asleep. It devolves upon us to bring about the awakening. And Anthroposophy bears within it all the impulses for a right awakening of civilization, for a right awakening of human culture."
