The End of the Trail

The End of the Trail

The End of the Trail

I have been in the spiritual underworld, The Bardo, for a long time. The date today is March 10, 2020, the second Sunday of Lent.

I am in the Blue Room recording a conversation between Pancho Villa and John Wayne. For the record, John Wayne was a great American actor. He represented American patriotism and heroism on the silver screen from 1930 through the 1970’s. John Wayne was known as the Duke. The following is dialog between Pancho and the Duke in the Bardo.

Pancho: Duke, you have been watching events, political activities, cultural and moral developments in the United States of America since your death in 1979.

Duke: Do you want my opinion of the United States and the world over the past 40 years?

Pancho: Yes.

Duke: Let’s start with the 1980’s and the Reagan years. Ron Reagan is a friend of mine. After a few weeks in office he survived an assassination attempt. His recovery was miraculous. He led the country on a path of individual responsibility, integrity, moral leadership and economic success. He won the cold war against the Soviet Union.

Pancho: Any negatives?

Duke: Yes. During his second term Ron’s intellectual capacity decreased, due to an early onset of senility. George Bush took control of the country. The war on drugs was a failure. Immigration policy and amnesty was also a failure. Today’s problems with immigration and drugs stem from the Reagan era.

Pancho: Duke, summarize the decade of the 1990’s for me.

Duke: There was the war with Iraq that pushed Saddam Hussein’s army out of Kuwait. The war was won quickly by the United States and its allies. However, the USA allowed Saddam and his cohorts to remain in power and subsequently there was a larger war in Iraq a dozen years later.

Pancho: Your views on Mexico during that period.

Duke: The drug cartels took over the entire country of Mexico. Mexico is a beautiful country, with natural resources and new industries. The North American Free Trade Agreement, NAFTA, helped the Mexican people. But the wars among the drug cartels made Mexico a very dangerous place.

Pancho: What about the USA?

Duke: The extreme animosity between the Democrats and Republicans began during the Clinton years because the Republicans tried to remove President Clinton for a sex act.

Pancho: How about terrorism?

Duke: There were three major attacks in America during the 1990’s. On February 26, 1993, there was the first attack at the World Trade Center. A truck bomb went off killing six and injuring about 1000 innocent workers. The building had one half billion dollars of damage.

In 1995, there was the attack at the Federal Building in Oklahoma City. The press called it a domestic terrorist attack. Two Americans were tried, convicted and sentenced for the crime. One terrorist was executed and the other went to prison for life.

Pancho: Where and when was the third terrorist attack in America?

Duke: The other attack occurred at the Branch Davidian compound in Waco, Texas that ended on April 19, 1993. The terrorists were the FBI and ATF. The confrontation began in February between ATF agents and the religious cult. The ATF attacked the Mount Carmel complex and killed innocent people. The Branch Davidians defending themselves, killed ATF agents. The FBI launched the final attack on April 19th, they burned down the compound, killing 76 men, women and children and the leader of the cult.

The Oklahoma City bombing April 19, 1995 was retaliation for what occurred two years prior in Oklahoma City.

The attack at the World Trade Center and Oklahoma City were funded by Iraqi intelligence operatives. You can find articles on the internet connecting the dots between these two attacks.

Pancho: What about the economy during the decade of the 90’s?

Duke: The economy changes with the onset of computers, the internet and cell phones. Instead of spending hours in a library doing research, an internet search finds subjects and articles in seconds. At the end of the century the stock market gyrates and there is a crash.

Pancho: Mexico did better during the 90’s. Manufacturing increased and the economy improved for millions of Mexicans.

Duke: But the drug cartels became more powerful and seized control of the country.

Pancho: How about your world view of the new century.

Duke: Well, the 21st Century began with a stock market crash around March of 2000. Trillions of dollars were lost world-wide. Then there was the major terrorist attack on the World Trade Center in New York City on September 11, 2001. There were wars in Iraq and Afghanistan that continue in some form today. Sadaam Hussain, Osama Bin Laden and others were killed. There were civil uprisings in Libya, Egypt, Syria, in North Africa, the Middle East and other countries in Africa. Another major economic recession occurred in 2008. The American middle class and investors around the world lost trillions of dollars more.

Pancho: What about the American elections in 2008, 2012 and 2016?

Duke: The Democrat candidate and eventual President for the following two terms was Barak Obama. He was hand- picked by the Progressive wing of the party. His eight years in office included a slow economic recovery, loss of freedom of speech and freedom of religion, a censored media with one liberal viewpoint. Also, the moral degeneracy of the United States of America continued.

Pancho: What is your opinion of the current President Donald Trump?

Duke: Trump won the election in 2016 because millions of people who had not voted in years came out and voted for him. He was undermined by the previous administration from the day he was elected. False accusations, bogus scandals and impeachment proceedings followed. His obnoxious personality did not help him. Animosity toward him increased from the media and liberal Americans. The United States intelligence services and FBI no longer serve the interests of the American people but are a law unto themselves. The Democratic Speaker of the House, house Democrats and Republicans and both political parties in the Senate are an embarrassment to the founding fathers of the country and all America.

Pancho: Let’s take a break Duke. We can continue the conversation a couple of weeks after Easter Sunday April 12, 2020.

Tuesday April 28, 2020

I am back in the Blue Room, within the Bardo. Through the interdimensional window, Pancho and the Duke have been observing the happenings in the United States and the world. I am recording the conversation.

Pancho: So, Duke, what’s up with this coronavirus?

Duke: We both lived through the Spanish Flu Pandemic of 1918. The estimate was that 500 million people were infected and 50 million people died worldwide. Epidemics and plagues have been occurring since the beginning of time.

Pancho: This seems to be different. In the world of 2020, the spread of the virus, the media coverage and the political response is managed. Opposing viewpoints are removed from social media and search engines. The secular powers do their best to control the human population. They use fear of catching the virus as an excuse.

Duke: The virus is real and lethal. From my observations the Chinese Government did not report the outbreak. They allowed the virus to spread worldwide. I am not sure if they were capable of suppressing the pandemic. Nature is taking its course.

Pancho: Governments place the population in lockdown. Western economies are destroyed. People lose jobs, the right to work and support families. I never liked governments. I fought the Mexican government and I fought the United States government. I wanted the peasants to have freedom, food and land. Now the world order has complete authority over all people. The super wealthy, the elite class and the subordinate politicians control planet earth.

Duke: During my time we fought World War II against the Nazis, Mussolini and Japan. We fought against tyrannical governments that murdered and enslaved millions of people. We fought the communists in North Korea and Vietnam. North Korea had to be stopped but Vietnam was a tragedy.

When the Soviet block lost the cold war, Eastern Europe became free. In 2020 modern Europe is socialist, secular and anti-religious. In the United States the politicians sold the American people out to China. China manufactures most of the products in the American home. The United States is dependent on China for its medicine. Medicine should be produced in the United States to protect its citizens.

Hey Pancho, what is your opinion about the virus?

Pancho: This is my opinion. The pandemic is a military attack. Citizens are under house arrest. Production, commerce, trade and small business stops. The politicians through the media suppress free speech. People can no longer go to church, synagogues or mosques. This operation was planned in 2015 for a world takeover. Using a pandemic, politicians lockdown populations. The left, progressive governments confiscate guns from the citizens. One reason the progressive left fought so hard to remove Trump was to facilitate a takeover of the United States. The plan was to have a liberal democrat as president. The election of Trump, an outsider, threw a monkey wrench into the mix.

In the Bardo, we are observers and see the truth through the looking glass.

Duke: Sounds like you believe in a conspiracy theory.

Pancho: I was assassinated by a conspiracy. I am an expert.

Duke: Pancho, you were baptized as a Roman Catholic, weren’t you?

Pancho: Yes, I was baptized Doroteo Arango. I got a reprieve from hell because of my faith. I repented. And you Duke, were you Roman Catholic?

Duke: Yes, I converted to Roman Catholicism in my later years of life because I believed in the sanctity of life. Abortions in the United States and throughout the world are a holocaust of biblical proportions. Governors of certain states have legalized late term abortions that are the equivalent of infanticide. Tens of millions of babies have been murdered the past fifty years. The powers that control the planet earth could not care less if hundreds of millions of people die from a virus. In their manner of thinking, they are cleansing the overpopulated world so the elite and their subordinate politicians may have a more abundant way of life for themselves. This pandemic is about controlling people and destroying their individual rights.

Pancho: What do you think of the day to day statistical analysis of the pandemic presented by the politicians, the world health organization and the media?

Duke: I think about a Mad Magazine cover with Alfred E. Neuman on it and the word Statistics. A statistical model is only as good as the data used in the variables. Retrospectively statistical analysis is usually very good because the event is over. Prospectively statistics are just a guess.

Pancho: What will happen to the United States because of this epidemic?

Duke: If the politicians continue to suppress the constitutional rights of the American people there will be a civil war far bloodier than the first civil war. What are your ideas Pancho?

Pancho: This virus may be the first wave of attack against the United States. There are other types of attacks. A world dependent on computers and electronic data transfer can be destroyed by a computer virus. Duke do you think this is the end of the trail for freedom and western civilization?

Duke: I think people should pray and repent of their sins. If you are a Roman Catholic, pray the Rosary. If you are a Christian, pray to Jesus, if you are a Moslem, pray to Allah, if you are a Jew, pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. And if you are an atheist pray that you have enough money to get through the hard times. Repent or the Wrath of God will be of biblical proportions.
