Like a Phoenix from the ashes, Bernie Sanders rises from mainstream media marginalization and Clinton's Arizona vote suppression trickery to score major victories in Washington, Alaska and Hawaii but the momentum and excitement is just beginning and even mother nature wants on the Bernie express: Allen L Roland, PhD


It ain't over till it's over ~ Yogi Berra


As Robert McChesney says on The Read News ~ " He's still getting massive support. People are just learning about Bernie Sanders in large parts of the country. It's their first introduction to him. And it's a very positive one. So the future, the immediate future, looks great. Saturday he will likely win blowout wins in Hawaii and Alaska, and Washington State, which is a large state. So then he'll have five consecutive blowout 20, 30, 40-point victories over Hillary Clinton in races going into the all-important Wisconsin race


Watch this candid 20 minute Bernie Sanders interview with Cenk Uygur of the The Young Turks (TYT)

It's well worth your time for this interview gives you a glimpse of the real Bernie as well as his honesty and basic humanness.


If you don't think Bernie is blessed ~ even mother nature is sending him omens that it's his turn ~ watch this one minute video of Bernie being visited by a small bird in Portland, Washington during a recent stump speech ~ and the crowds hilarious reaction. See video



Bernie is quickly becoming the only true and likeable alternative for intelligent voters who are tired of War talk and threats, Wall Street excess and patriotic campaign Blatter ~ and want instead someone they can trust and respect for President.

Black Hole in space and Point of singularity


Black holes in space are in stark reality worm holes to another stage of consciousness deepest within ourselves as experienced in the near and after death experience. They are not meant to be feared but instead to be celebrated as the ultimate event horizon leading from the chaos of ego consciousness to the singularity of a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears: Allen L Roland, PhD


"How comforting and 'electrifying it would be if some signal or sign, some summons or echo, should come to us from beyond death and give us positive assurance that some center of convergence really does exist ahead of us" Teilhard de Chardin / Activation of human Energy


 As an octogenarian at 82 years old, I find myself increasingly concerned with end-of-life preparation ~ but I also feel a subtle anticipatory pull from within which serves as a constant joyful reminder to me that time is seemingly contracting as I approach the ultimate event horizon of death and the point of convergence beyond it.


To me, that point of convergence is an anticipated personal celebration as well as a loving reunion with loved ones who have passed on and who still exist within a Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space and also beneath our deepest fears ~ or as Elizabeth Kubler Ross wrote ~ "Death may be viewed as the curtain between the existence we are conscious of and the one that is hidden from us until we raise the curtain"

It is obvious to me that my life's mission has been to fully surrender to love, discover that it is beneath my deepest fears and then share this truth with the world with my writing as well as in my heart centered work as a counselor and now as a soul centered consultant.


In other words, we can raise that curtain now if we stop being controlled by fear and begin to trust and express our deepest feelings and the love that is also deepest within us. For a state of soul consciousness and our connection to the Unified Field lies deepest within us and ahead of us, and only our fear of death and the unknown stands in the way.


Thus death, or the idea of death, appears to be an illusion measured by the limits of our consciousness ~ This would seem to explain why people who have had a near-death experience not only do not fear death but have new values regarding love and being in service.


It is my opinion that the near-death experience allows someone to momentarily pass through the dark tunnel of internal pain, aloneness, despair and apparent death, from which the ego and ego consciousness is born, into a state of soul consciousness and our deepest connection to the Unified Field.


It's the Final Option or the great surrender and it's also like a birth experience ~ I prefer to call it transmutation for we are being transformed from one kind of being into another and love is the vehicle for this passage. In many ways, the butterfly or the authentic person has emerged from its dark cocoon of fear.


The great physicist Steven Hawking has suggested that black holes in space may become white holes at a point of singularity. Similarly, near-death experiences report a light at the end of a dark tunnel, much like our birth through the "dark tunnel" of the womb delivers us into the light of this world.


Picture yourself for a moment being drawn into a black hole in space and helplessly crushed by a force far greater than yourself. Would it feel something like the following account?


"An intransigent force ~ wild, out of control ~

has gripped the infant.

A blind force that hammers at it and impels it



Overpowered, it huddles up as tightly as it can …

The walls close in further still….

The cell becomes a passageway, the passage, a tunnel,

With its heart bursting, the enfant sinks into this hell,

It's fear is without limit….


Then everything explodes!

The whole world bursts open.

No more tunnel, no prison, no monster,

The child is born."


These are the words of Frederick Leboyer, the famous French pediatrician, describing the birth trauma. "Birth and death both represent archetypal passages from one state, or world, to another ~ and are therefore universally apt metaphors for spiritual and psychological transformation" as leboyer writes in Birth Without Violence.


For example, both my original birth trauma and my Navy carrier experience (The Final Option) on the South China Sea were life-or-death situations dealing with forces and events that seemed beyond my control.

Both times I fully experienced and felt crushing sensations and overwhelming terror ~ and when I fully surrendered, I discovered a hidden source of strength or consciousness guiding me through my fear and over to the "other side". In one case I was born (I vaguely remember the birthing table lights at the Boston Lying in Hospital in 1934) and in the other case I entered the Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that lay not only beyond time and space and also beneath my deepest fear and terror.


I am thus suggesting that at the end of the black hole of ego consciousness within us we reach a point of psychic singularity where all notions of time and space break down, we experience a reversal in the polarity of our being and re-establish our conscious connection with the Unified Field and our original state of  Soul consciousness.


I have had many personal experiences of the sensory sensation of being in the Unified Field of love and soul consciousness that exists not only beyond time and space but also beneath our deepest fears but this one clearly stands out ~ for it was a matter of life and death, a true near-death experience, and it became the foundation of my belief in this state of consciousness that lies beneath our deepest fears. I call it the Final Option which interestingly enough was total surrender. See VT article ~


Since general relativity states that nothing can travel faster than the speed of light, nothing inside the event horizon can ever cross the boundary and escape beyond it, including light. Thus, nothing that enters a black hole can get out or can be observed from outside the event horizon ~ but since love and soul consciousness (the Unified Field) exceed the speed of light as the one constant of the universe then it would appear that death is an illusion measured by the limits of our consciousness.



My after death experience with my Mother when she passed on in 1987 was proof positive that she was now in the Unified Field ~ a state of soul consciousness that exists beyond time and space. It was the ultimate gift from my mother who had read my Unified Field a few weeks prior to her sudden passing. She appeared sitting on my bed, 3000 miles away, at the moment of her passing joyfully telling me that she loved me and that she now knew what I knew and had previously shared with her ~ "Allen, I know, Allen, I know "    See VT article ~


In other words, the singularity or center of convergence at the center of a black hole in space, where time and space come to an end, parallels the singularity or center of convergence within each one of us that leads us from darkness, fear and ego consciousness into the brilliant light of a Unified Field  of love and soul consciousness that is at the very core of our being ~ and is also one in the same with Teilhard's Omega Point which also exists beyond time and space.


So in summary, that subtle anticipatory and electrifying pull from within which I am increasingly feeling as I draw nearer to the eventual event horizon of death is the awareness that I am also being deeply loved from beyond death, much like the phenomenon of Teilhard de Chardin's  "Omega" point of universal unconditional love ~ as expressed in Teilhard's The Phenomenon of Man;


  " A universal love is not only psychologically possible; it is the only complete and final way in which we are able to love It is necessary and sufficient for us that we should extend our science to its furthest limits and recognize and accept (as being necessary to close and balance space-time) ~ not only some vague future existence but also, as I must now stress ~ the radiation as a present reality of that mysterious center of our centers which I have called Omega "


My twin brother Bobby who passed on a few years ago has since intervened in my life, almost like a protective guardian angel, ~ I heard him calling out to me a few months ago "Hi Twinzie" ~ reminding me, from beyond time and space, that he is still connected to my heart and that those who we love deeply become part of us forever.

We're halfway through the Presidential Primaries and already a trend is becoming apparent; Hillary's credibility baggage is far too heavy and her light is fading; Trump's arrogance and bullying tactics are now a mirror of many of his followers as his campaign implodes while Bernie's tenacious empowering message wins the day in Michigan ~ and with that win ~ the electorate are beginning to slowly realize that the only proven and credible change agent left in this race is Bernie Sanders: Allen L Roland, PhD


Does any American really want to see the Clintons in the White House again?  I think not and Michigan sensed her Achilles heel ~ Credibility. When Hillary gets pressed she will resort to deception and lies much as her husband personified during his eight year white house performance ~ where the Clinton lie machine was perfected.


For example, During the Michigan Democratic debate, Media critic Jeff Cohen praised Sanders for calling out Hillary for another Clinton lie ~ saying Sanders stood with Minutemen vigilantes which was a blatant lie. Hillary's self-serving comments about Nancy Reagan's AIDS activism at Nancy Reagan's funeral was another lie and an excellent example of how low the Clintons will stoop to score political points ~ she later apologized.

Watch this excellent 12 minute video interview as Jeff correctly identifies the Clinton Lie Machine as well as the Role of Mainstream corporate Media in their attempt to maintain the status quo. See Video ~


Donald Trump is a parody of every ten plate dictator over the last 60 years and his campaign is disintegrating as his campaign implodes with barely suppressed right wing anger and violence.

Here's an excerpt from a World War II era address by Italian Fascist Dictator Benito Mussolini ~ it's a rare two minute video but note the arrogant narcissist dictator appearance and crowd pleasing attitude and compare it with the similar arrogant antics and attitude of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump. See video ~



Meanwhile Bernie's campaign continues to be a people's movement and as Robert Reich correctly predicts after the Sander's Michigan victory ~ "and that movement cannot be  stopped"

Reich goes on to expound ~ " If there was any doubt before tonight, there can be no longer: Bernie Sanders is a movement, and that movement will not and cannot be stopped. Despite the Democratic National Committee, the big Democratic donors, the Super PAC; despite the pollsters and pundits and the Washington insiders and political operatives ~ despite an establishment that doesn't want to recognize what has happened to America and why this movement is essential to reclaiming our democracy and economy ~ Bernie will prevail and the political revolution will grow. Americans are joining up and joining together. Sooner or later ~ hopefully, sooner rather than later -- we will succeed."

Wishful thinking? I think not ~ for we have reached a critical point in our political evolution where we all now know or at least sense that our current problems cannot be solved by the same consciousness and corporate money that created it.

"China syndrome" is a fanciful term that describes a fictional worst-case result of a nuclear meltdown, where reactor components melt through their containment structures and into the underlying earth, all the way to China. In today's global economic climate it means that China's over built managed economic boom fueled by margin buying and excessive debt has exposed its global illusion of prosperity, as well as a commodity bubble and the threat of a worldwide economic recession. This looming financial meltdown is potentially more ominous than the 2008 Global Financial Crisis: Allen L Roland, PhD


CHINA is set to plunge the world into an economic crisis sending stock markets crashing by 50 - 75 per cent - with devastating consequences for the US and UK, a leading city expert has warned and its already happening.

Kedar Grandhi, ICH, reports "Albert Edwards, a strategist at Société Générale bank, has warned of an impending global financial crisis similar to the one that occurred in 2008-09. This time, he said, it could lead to the collapse of the Eurozone.

The warning follows a recent note issued by analysts at Royal Bank of Scotland (RBS) to investors to "sell everything" ahead of an imminent stock market crash. It also comes at a time when global markets see a short period of relief from the bearish trend that commenced since the New Year.

At an investment conference in London, Edwards said: "Developments in the global economy will push the US back into recession. The financial crisis will reawaken. It will be every bit as bad as in 2008-09 and it will turn very ugly indeed. Can it get any worse? Of course it can." See article ~

China's debt of at least 250 % of GDP is indicative of the growing debt problem but the biggest problem for China is transparency.

Here's the China syndrome in a nut shell ~ “Now that this debt bubble is unwinding, growth in China is going offline,” Michael Pento, president of Pento Portfolio Strategies, wrote on last week.The renminbi’s falling value, cascading Shanghai equity prices (down 40 percent since June 2014) and plummeting rail freight volumes (down 10.5 percent year over year) all clearly illustrate that China is not growing at the promulgated 7 percent, but rather isn’t growing at all. The problem is that China accounted for 34 percent of global growth, and the nation’s multiplier effect on emerging markets takes that number to over 50 percent.”

So what if China is not growing at all ~ which is what I strongly suspect and that startling truth is being manipulated by a less that transparent Chinese regime who cannot take the risk of telling the truth ~ much as the United States did in 2008 and is still doing today to a large extent.

Just grasp that for a moment and we can see where the stock market could well be going which would be substantially lower in 2016 ~ particularly when you factor in that it's an election year.

Beginning last year, Chinese officials also used state-owned media to encourage individual investors to pour their savings and borrowed money into the stock market, leading to a massive bubble. When the market started to tumble over the summer, the government blamed rumormongers and speculators, and ordered securities firms and state-owned companies to keep buying, which simply disguised the underlying problems.

The lesson here is clear: Instead of trying to micromanage stock prices, Chinese officials ought to be strengthening the economy, foremost by shifting its emphasis from investment to consumer spending and services ~ but that's not going to happen.

The Financial Times cited figures from the Bank for International Settlements showing that China has the highest private debt levels in the world, and that the cost of servicing this debt has risen from 12 percent of GDP in 2009 to 20 percent today.

The danger now is that the contraction in industrial profits, the debt service burdens, and a flagging property market could together depress household income growth ~ jeopardizing the consumer spending that forms the most robust stratum in the economy,” the editorial continued.

What is referred to as the “pain of transition” involves the destruction of whole swathes of industry and the loss of millions of jobs, raising before the regime its greatest fear ~ an upsurge in the struggles of the working class. There are already signs of such a movement. See WSWS article ~

So here's the bottom line ~ Think of the world's economy like a giant luxury cruise ship, similar to the Titanic ~ well, it just hit a giant iceberg (named debt) and it's sinking fast although many of the passengers are still unaware of that reality. A few are re-arranging chairs on the deck oblivious to the fact that the ship is already listing and taking on water ~ the rest is history.

And here's what it looked like to WSWS a few weeks ago;

" The quantitative easing policies pursued by the Fed and other major central banks, which pumped trillions of dollars into the global financial system, led to an explosion of borrowing by corporations in emerging markets, which more than quadrupled their debt from $4 trillion in 2004 to over $18 trillion by 2014. Now this money is heading for the exits.

According to the Institute for International Finance, emerging markets saw a $735 billion capital outflow last year, most of it coming from China, a shift characterized by the organization's chief economist as an “unprecedented event.”  Other estimates put the outflow even higher, with one economist telling the World Economic Forum recently held in Davos, Switzerland that the capital flight from China had reached $1 trillion since mid-2015.

But the emerging market tailspin is only one of the most prominent symptoms of the deepening crisis of the global financial system. On the eve of the recent Davos meeting, William White, former chief economist of the Bank for International Settlements and now chairman of the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development’s review committee, warned that the global financial system was unstable and faced an avalanche of bankruptcies.

The situation is worse than it was in 2007,” he said. “Our macroeconomic ammunition to fight downturns is essentially all used up.” Debts had continued to build up over the past eight years and it would become obvious in the next recession that many of them would never be repaid."   See WSWS article


The growing ugly reality that the world must now face is that China is probably not growing at all ~ only a managed economy and a secretive leadership is keeping that from becoming obvious.

Briefly, the Chinese centralized regime pledged that the restoration of capitalism would open the way for the country’s “peaceful rise” and overcome the legacy of decades of economic backwardness ~ and unfortunately that program has turned into a disaster.

In an Op Ed in the New York Times, Thomas Friedman posed the China Syndrome What If question at a recent dinner party.

"Just get me talking about the world today and I can pretty well ruin any dinner party. I don’t mean to, but I find it hard not to look around and wonder whether the recent turmoil in international markets isn’t just the product of tremors but rather of seismic shifts in the foundational pillars of the global system, with highly unpredictable consequences.

What if a bunch of eras are ending all at once?

What if we’re at the end of the 30-plus-year era of high growth in China, and therefore China’s ability to fuel global growth through its imports, exports and purchases of commodities will be much less frothy and reliable in the future?"  


"But here’s the worst “what if”: What if we’re having a presidential election but no one is even asking these questions, let alone “what if” all of these tectonic plates move at once?
How will we generate growth, jobs, security and resilience?" Thomas Friedman, NYT


In summary, China is rapidly approaching an economic hard landing that imperils the global economy and it's failure to face this reality only deepens this impending global threat.
