Kasich delusional; Rubio not in God’s plan

by Jon Rappoport

March 16, 2016

(To read about Jon’s mega-collection, Exit From The Matrix, click here.)

Is America a nation of clueless children? Don’t answer that.

John Kasich, after winning his home state of Ohio in the Republican Primary last night, thus amassing enough delegates to hope and pray for a job as dogcatcher, told his cheering supporters, “We’re going to go all the way to Cleveland and secure the nomination.”

I expected his wife to turn to him and say, “Easy, sailor, the night is still young. Lay off the sauce until we have some supper.”

Kasich sprinkled in a few references to God. Naturally. Only He could reverse a snowball’s chance in Hell.

Marco Rubio tanked in Florida and dropped out of the race. His exit line? The Presidency isn’t in God’s plan for me.

Really, Marco. Is that your excuse? You did everything right, but God, a few weeks ago, or 5 billion years ago, decided 2016 wasn’t going to be your year?

What is it with American politicians and God? They’re in the sleaziest profession in the world and they’re devout?

Of course, in certain swaths of the country, God sells. He sells big. And that’s what these pols are doing. Selling. Sometimes they even buy their own pitch lines. After a while, they can’t tell the difference between votes and blessings from above. It all blurs.

Ted Cruz is shot out of that gun at a thousand miles a minute. He’s ripping down the gates to the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored. He’s saving the nation from doom. He’s doing Destiny like a high school football coach. When he goes belly up, it’s going to be a demented moment. “I lost so the nation could win. Jesus told me it works that way. It’s a form of martyrdom.”

The “purveyor of God’s Word” is as old as the hills. Apparently, people can’t figure the Word out for themselves, if they want to. They have to look for an intermediary, who takes full advantage of the position he’s made for himself.

Marco Rubio is obviously depressed. But why? He knows, somehow, that he wasn’t in God’s Plan. Therefore, he should be happy. The Plan is working out. What’s more important, the end of his campaign or God’s Will? Come on, Marco, get your priorities straight. How does your defeat measure up against the unfolding of the Universe?


exit from the matrix


Why aren’t devout believers angry at these pols, who are selling cheap knockoff versions of the Original Product?

“I’ve got God for only $39.95. In fact, vote for me and I’ll send you two for the price of one. Just pay for shipping and handling.”

Turns out the shipping and handling is an exchange for the commitment of your soul.

“Well, we didn’t win the election, but I came out of the experience with a whole new understanding of religion. Jesus is back. He wears a retro powder-blue leisure suit and shows up at Texas barbecues and He wants us to bomb lots of countries and sign all the trade treaties. It was a revelation for me…”

    The big question is… WHO is their “god” ??

    The Bible says God rules the nations and places in power whomsoever He wills…
    but I’m thinking those politicians may be referring to a human false-god, like Soros.

      You have a good point here, Cyrus. The Bible says God rules the nations and places in power whomsoever He wills .. but we’re all thinking those politicians may be referring to a human false-god, such as Soros.
      Exactly. Soros and other wealthy donors contributed to Marco Rubio’s Presidential campaign; however, the Man Upstairs thwarted their plans to place little Marco in the Oval Office.

      Indeed, Soros and other wealthy donors contributed to Marco Rubio’s Presidential campaign; however, the Man Upstairs thwarted their plans of putting little Marco in the Oval Office. He just wasn’t in the cards.

    Was watching the news on WKYC Cleveland the day before election. They way the “political analyst” was talking, the body movements and expressions- you could tell they knew Kasich was going to win before it even happened. That Ohio vote was rigged.

    • From Québec says:

      Of course it was rigged!

      I mean, come on, Ohio people could not be that stupid, could they?

      Kasich will sign amnesty in his first hundred days in the White House.
      He voted for NAFTA, TPPP…. and on and on.

    You think it is funny to mock GOD? All I can say is you better be prepaird to make your bed in hell.

    • binra says:

      Hang on a bit – if what is being discussed is a corrupt culture that ‘mocks’ God by using His name without His Nature – then it is the mockers who are being mocked.
      When so many ‘use’ the idea of God as a deceit to hide in and manipulate through, many feel the name cant be used because its been given corrupted meanings as a result of no longer being actually connected with. Instead an image or symbol or concept of ‘God’ is hyped up and ‘given’ power. There are warnings against this in the Bible that no longer find ears to hear.

      How do you know if the God you love is real? (that’s a trick question).
      You know what is real by recognizing it in love and extending love to it.
      If you try to love hate – it will not return your love but devour it and tell you that sacrifice is ‘love’ and that love is hateful weakness that works against your struggle to sacrifice and be free of unworthiness.
      Love reveals you already worthy – and it is this quality of being that recognizes itself in others – and in the world – and extends appreciation and gratitude for the gift.
      Another term for God is Mercy or Unconditional Acceptance. if you know better than God – stay in what your own judgement demands of you. But the Last Judgement is a Restatement of the First Creation: You Are my Beloved in Whom Is My Delight.
      Jesus was a way-shower – not a sacrificial victim to appease a god of hate.

      Prepare yourself for Life by self-honesty – not coercive conformity to feared outcomes.
      Appearances can be faked – but a false self-assertion is a mask that always inevitably slips.
      Such is a time for celebration! Light has entered – what are you going to do with it? “Kill the hypocrite!” or open a communication that until now could not be had.
      When the one who feels they deserve death is extended Life they have a real choice to accept and recognize Life. Otherwise the hatred rejoices in its ‘righteousness’ and feels ‘closer to its god’.

      As I indicated in a post on another recent Rappo-Rap – we cant damage the Original – but we can suffer a distorted and conflicted copy. It is your balance of mind that you keep in the heart – not God’s Well Being. Taking offence is a choice – with consequence.
      Be ye perfect even as God is Perfect – could mean Be on purpose and whole in unified purpose in your own consciousness so as to align and attune to Universal Purpose. It has nothing to do with what FORM this takes. But only love is capable of wholeness – where hate has to have at least something OTHER than itself to seem to happen.
      The god of HATE is the changing of an Intimacy of being to a world of ugly strangers – against whom the elect and elite seek to prevail. Its a scam but with an extremely intense force of will in it. (Though I now see the true Will was forced down and then blamed in false scapegoating).
      Jesus exemplified discovering the true Will of the relational situation – by pausing the mind of reaction and putting it behind – then what rises clear as Obvious is truth to rest in – as balanced action.
      Take up thy bed from hell and walk!

      • @ binra
        i get a kick outta your stuff..lol
        Are you a Blake fan? you’re definitely a poet…a singer perhaps? Absolutely there is an artist alive in there.

        “The god of HATE is the changing of an Intimacy of being to a world of ugly strangers…” binra

        Bin there’s a poem in that line…
        You words are ok, I like how you put together, your point view, well that’s another thing.
        of course you can’t hacve it all.

        • binra says:

          There’s one bit of Blake I quote from time to eternity:
          “He who binds unto himself a joy, doth the winged life destroy – but he who kisses the joy as it flies, lives in Eternity’s sunrise”.

          Close to my heart.

          The movement within finds form out of a the pallet of expression that is the vocabulary I have acquired or unfolded and includes having fun. That Thou Art in Heaven is the true root and ground of all being. A true likeness is of a kind and true kindness is of a recognition.

          I love words in the context of uncovering and sharing meaning. Not to translate into verbal mental dead concept – but living moment of a resonance recognition. Most are not attending the living – being so busy with the dead – as if resolving conceptual constructs will arrive somewhere they need to reach so as to be done with that and able to come out and play. But now never arrives.

          When you really know – Now that mind simply cannot understand – it must stand under and yield as an instrument of a creative movement of being in which Who you’ve always been recognizes Always. Point of view is never fixed, always changing. But if you confuse it with your joy and try to keep it – you pause freedom of perspective for a frozen facet of a living idea – a concept in time.

          Infinite points of You reflect infinite richness – and within any point of view is expansion or contraction. Perhaps you already have it all – but play in perspectives that appreciate what you have and are in always new ways. I’ve not felt this moment before – it’s a unique facet of All That Is, and infinity is neither big nor small – so if you want an experience you have to differentiate enough to have a perspective. You have to accept a point of view. But that’s yours to have by kissing it as it flies – or to lose by binding a self to it. You know the world reverses this and says what you release you lose and what you possess is your gain. But that’s the nature of possession, it takes over your thinking and feeds you an illusion of yourself as more than. Now you have something to lose and ‘others’ to take it from you. Let the Games begin!

            @binra
            Yes I agree, I have always disliked the energy frozen and fixed in word. In some words the energy is hardened and bitter. Words that are used frequently on the internet, become tainted with other meanings. Group meanings.
            Vocabulary has become so personally, transfixed within a mind…a mental dead concept as you say. Something in the past as the present has not explained itself as yet.
            Emotions attach themselves to the words, as and if we have a favour color. And so we choose words that are in those same tones and values. According to a condition of life. Which for me has caused me to try and find other ways of using them. One can become too far too familiar with there own language.

            “Most are not attending the living – being so busy with the dead – as if resolving conceptual constructs will arrive somewhere they need to reach so as to be done with that and able to come out and play.” -Bin

            There is so many ways of understanding this, if I understand it right. 
            Yes, I seem to caught in that a lot of times.
            I think so very fast, always putting out fires in my head. It took me a long time to learn and focus on the one thought. Some of the information comes from; I do not know were, it just shows up when I need it.  
            An imagination developed so complexly as a child, enables me to live within many realities. It’s a Walter Mitty world of seeing the many possible scenarios and choosing which one fits. Choosing which one is expanded or contracted. Until, as you say I reach some place and then come out and play. I think that most become confused and forget; or maybe they don’t know; language is a technology, a tool to enable a sound. and the sound is a form of music, abstracted. A carrier wave for information.

            I had forgotten that one need not hold on to a thing; a concept; an idea; learning creates wisdom, naturally wisdom is a rendering down to something beyond the information itself. I guess I should learn something from the word freedom. Something other and beyond the release from mental and emotional chains. Freedom in the first state does mean, free. Freedom now is so dependant on what the group thinks; there are criteria.

            “If the doors of perception were cleansed, everything would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.” -Billy Blake

            • binra says:

              Yes – I join with you. True meanings are capable of expansion and fluidity – because they are alive.

              Discernment is the key. Jon talks of logic and imagination – but both of those operate from a premise which can be true or not. A fearful sense of self will operate a negative imagination – no less in disguising itself within positive spin. Discerning a true foundation is like feeling the ring of integrity or freedom from the smell of a manipulative intent. But we can only recognize integrity through our own – which includes the willingness to align with it from wherever we seem to be. Then we can meet situations and others and recognize in others without being addicted to outer identity forms. For it is not the form of a thing that communicates meaning but the wholeness of context in which the form takes its meaning. If I want to discern the meaning of anything I simply feel or listen within and what I need turns up because I didn’t believe it wouldn’t. I didn’t give energy to the fear that I would be denied or deceived – and so that imagination wast communicated to higher mind and used to invoke experience.
              To know what I need to know, when I need to know it, allows desire to align whatever is needed. What is my desire? It is the movement of my being – or more exactly it is the resonance and relevance within the movement of being to who I feel and know myself to be. Which is more of a core signature vibration than any externally validated set of concepts, images or forms.
              We lose our energetic sensitivity when we rely on short-cuts of outer recognition. But it isn’t at all LOST – it is simply the ingrained conditioning of trading in derivatives that have lost connection with the Worth – not least because in a world of symbols and symbols of symbols an inflated sense of worth can seem real as well as a sense of worthlessness when such bubbles are popped.
              The lens of guilt and fear distorts perception – and inverts it – so as to make it the ’cause’ of the one who perceives – who is the dreamer of the dream regardless he struggles within the drama of it and rails at his fate. Pretending not to be fearful or guilt-conditioned only dons a spiritual disguise. But uncovering and owning fear and guilt feelings is the opportunity to choose differently – however – when they come to conscious awareness we are usually triggered to escape or avoid them ASAP and don’t realize that the grievance was an opportunity – especially if projecting out in grievance is our way not to own our own feelings – and feel somewhat righteous and relieved instead.

      • Grey says:

        Interesting words…but is God’s love truly unconditional? Not according to scripture. There are things that our Creator expects from us, the “Thou shall not” list found in the ten commandments. How many bodies can one leave behind and still be forgiven by our Creator? Unconditional love? I don’t think so, unless our understanding (ancient Hebrews; Abraham) of Him is totally wrong.

        • binra says:

          There are many ways I can respond to that. But perhaps I will use Trauma and Healing to illustrate a point. Humanity experienced catastrophic trauma – a result of which was a sense of in some way having brought wrath or evil upon themselves – whatever way their minds went with it, the result is a deep Imprinting of Terror and Rage that conditioned our minds in such a sense of reality. The persona or tribe that seeks to survive and prevail – the survivors of Trauma who feel Chosen – are not open to the Idea of God as love – but to an Idea of Power that destroys and yet CAN save – if – you don’t step out of line. While the individual imprint is evident in anyone’s experience of traumatic events as the splitting off of a fragment of thought in attempt to escape intolerable stress, the collective response carries the social organisations of giving rage power to use terror as a weapon over one’s own – as Notional Security ie: these acts and sacrifices are held necessary for the survival of the notional self/tribe/nation. This imprint has not evolved since it was burned into experience. Such is the mind born of fear – which is a false creation within the Mind created in God’s Likeness – ie: Creative Individuality.
          If you want you can read the Commandments as implicit to abiding in true co-creativie resonance rather than as a social ordering. There is Nothing But God and worshipping imaged definitions of Indivisible Reality as if they are God will seem to make an Otherness and conflict within You – a sense of having got something at another’ expense, a sense of Other threatening to take it back; a sense of lack – in short the whole Fall or Separation experience.
          “If you go there, a sense of un-reality will reverse the true with the false and you will hurt yourself in the attempt to reconcile them”.
          Everything that is experienced is Felt in Consciousness and that is far far more than the tiny focus allowed a mind ‘inside’ a body and operating within the confines of its dictate. In that sense your whole life is already received as riches of a kind your thinking precludes from your appreciation – but unless you stop turning away from living relationship into the posture and imposture of asserted independence from the very Life that sustains you – you wont recognize the Life though it is all around you.
          The translation of everything that SEEMS to be or have been, to an unqualified Acceptance in truth is a ‘Mercy’ beyond our understanding – but not our acceptance. The human conditioning is of a PAST made in anger imposed upon the presence as a present in terms of the past. That’s another way of saying we re-enact separation trauma over and over – without GETTING IT! – Without recognizing the distortion of the Creative and sweeping it out of the Template.

          You may think that without guilt and fear – you or indeed society – would run off the rails and chaos would follow. That’s the nature of fear-based ‘control’ and it believes its own thought true. You can read Jesus as an Invitation to wake out of that sacrificial conditioning – for which there is no punishment – though all sense of ‘punishment’ is within its framing.
          Or you can read it as proof and reinforcement of the idea of sacrifice of Love as ‘saving’ sinners to survive and prevail within a magical bubble that love will not violate.
          The NEED to believe in, and hate and identify against evil, is not what I see in Jesus. He was very aware of the destructive effect of fear-deceits, and in the instant of recognizing a scam – he put it behind him while attending the Living. However, the nature of fear-deceit in our identity is such that I cant simply address this in words and change anything. I can only extend my witness to your willingness to wake out from deceit that MUST be operating if your sense of yourself and world is conflicted.
          “How is it I am deceived?” If this is a genuine desire in your heart – then whether you call it prayer of not it will align you with the information you need in a timing and a manner you can accept – one step at a time – and in terms of Life – that expand or stretch your current definitions of communication and relationship – to let more Life in!
          There is much revelation of deceit in the ‘ways of our world’ that is deeply disturbing to a sense of sanity, stability or continuity. To the manipulator, this works to unsettle and herd or farm an outcome. To the awakener is opens the way of uncovering the very self-same devices our own consciousness employs in maintaining a false or oppositional definition of sanity, stability and continuity upon the Life that is not allowed to embody and fruit in its true nature.

          The idea of the Holy Spirit – is of your re-integrative recognition and acceptance to your Whole Original Mind – and as such is nothing more than your true signature quality – held in trust within you while your attention is engaged in a ‘divide and rule’ by which your ‘signal’ or channel of communication is adulterated, diluted, usurped, robbed, lost, lusted for and taken over by reversals of true desire that use your own power against yourself by unrecognized deceit.

          If you want to be the one to send another, hell – then you will have to be the one to release yourself from what you establish in yourself by giving it. For what you give out is what you get back. As you sow so shall you reap. Garbage in, garbage out. The innate Nature and Law of Mind is unchangeable. Everything changes – but your experience of this unfolding Meaning is according to the gifts you accept and extend – for yours is such power – even to unfold a meaninglessness that is hateful to you. You can have what you choose – but unless you align with what you truly want – you wont know your own choice and wont know you can change it. You have to OWN the ‘mistake’ of learning by experience so as to release it into a corrected perspective. That is how life works when you let it. Repentance in Jesus was not about sin – it was about IMMEDIATELY getting back on track and not looking back. The ‘world’ subverted that to be all about sin with the goal to be achieved in some future that NEVER comes. You do get that, don’t you. It never comes – and that is the deceit by which to SEEM ‘spiritual’ while bullshitting yourself – and of course trading a subverted ‘version’ of a simple effective understanding.

          The Idea of G-d – “I Am, That I Am” was so Powerful and Awesome an Idea to the ancient Hebrew tradition that only the chief priest, on the day of the Holy of Holies, in the Holy Place at the back of the Holiest Temple – would utter the Name out loud!
          Is that not the hiding of the “Holy Spirit” in a “safe place” from corruptions of the sinful sense of compulsive deceit? Is it not the hiding FROM the true by making it Special and Other – so as to protect the sinful or wrong-feeling sense of compulsive deceit while mitigating its payload of fear and guilt?

          I am living in different times now – I feel this is the time to separate from that which separates us from our true Life – and not look back – or bind unto a mind of denial in the illusion of power that is blind to the power of illusion. I don’t feel to persuade anyone of what is not the Will. That didn’t work — it backfired! I do feel to illuminate the nature of the ‘choice’ as a current responsibility. For in a conscious awareness of the true nature of the choice – there is no choice but Life – and the ‘other’ falls off as meaningless and of no relevance or use. So you might see that the Framing of deceit is to divert attention to choices – all of which – maintain the lack of free awareness in which to SEE.

          The loss of a true self-acceptance is the loss of HONESTY. It is your Foundation and no holy bullshit will substitute for the Real You. But in living the genuine presence of you – you can see that what is used as a mask of manipulation – has original true meaning. You don’t have to use the same terms – but you don’t have to give all such communications to the degraded use of them either.

          The ‘Way to truth’ is as simple as answering the knock on the door. If you want a complex and painful process before you let it in – you can use time that way too. It’s up to you.

          (Hang on I’m busy. Not now – cant you see I’m busy! In a minute – I have to sort this out first…. Another day – I’ve got a lot going on here! Go Away! I cant deal with this now! This is the last thing I need! Fuck off or I’ll call the police! Doctor, I have these symptoms that I cant get rid off… what? I have to take this for the rest of my life?).

    Lying Ted, like Trump calls him. He holds the Bible hight, puts it back on the table, and starts lying. Trump said that Ted lost with the evangelicals because evangelicals don’t like liars.

    Little Marco, like Trump calls him. He sweats and sweats to the point where you think he will collapse on the stage. He should ask God to fix this problem….lol And maybe, also ask God, what he can do about his robotic personality that he has.

    Kasich believes in his own faked success. The taxes have never been so high in Ohio, since he is there. But, he got lucky with the oil, that’s all. Without the oil, Ohio would already be a third world shit hole. I can’t stand this guy.

    TRUMP:
    A reporter asked Trump if he ever asked God to forgive him about things he did in his life. Trump posed for a minute and said: No, I don’t recall anything. If I believe I did something wrong, I just try to fix it and make it better.

    • I have sinned against……Bless me father for I have sinned, oh, yes my son, we’ll have to do it again sometime. You might wonder, not only do politicians and just plain guys from Montana talking to God on a two-way radio make things very interesting in this country but nutcases who get “inspired” by media figures and discarnate or non-corporeal entities to commit heinous trespasses and violations against their fellow citizens, no Jon Rappoport told me to, but…no the Indigo Police told me, I was just following orders….but. but… And then who have you wronged? Simply your fellow man….all you have to do is make amends with him or her, serve the best interest of your fellow humans, I don’t see how serving corpulent generals in one or another location not on Terra Firma serves any purpose but escalation of a war of attrition in which we are all gullible dupes willing to register for the draft or even volunteer simply because there’s no one else hiring. Independent or Mom and Pop gods have been forced out of business by Wal-Mart and the Hobby Lobby.

    The world, indeed humanity, would look totally different without religion, which is simply an elaborate, and costly, production to control the masses. The 3-major religions, Christianity, Judaism and Islam, are responsible for most of the killing and bloodshed in the world. And they hold up their bible, their Torah and other symbols/words to justify it all. Fools.

    • binra says:

      Isn’t that already the vision and AIM of the NWO? Replace all religions with the STATE – and justify it by propagandising that ‘religion’ kills – rather than revealing it is the manipulators of Idea that set brother against brother and man against himself. They wont reveal that because then you can see that they are doing the self-same thing with Reason – to false rationality or science to a corrupted scientism. Corruption and deceit all forms can masquerade, to make the true seem ugly and memory of it fade.

    The Lord Almighty is an important aspect of my life at least, as this formless and timeless Infinite Creative entity lives through me, so please forgive Bubble Boy and Mr. TPP for their remarks. You are correct that it is difficult to watch Hillary the black witch, who regularly drinks the blood of freshly sacrificed goy babies, invoke Christ. However, the creator of the Universe (God) is an important part of Life, so throwing him into the political equation is pretty important, but invoking the Ultimate to explain your own foibles is pretty tasteless.

    “The ancient Poets animated all sensible objects with Gods or Geniuses, calling them by the names and adorning them with the properties of woods, rivers, mountains, lakes, cities, nations, and whatever their enlarged & numerous senses could perceive. And particularly they studied the genius of each city & country, placing it under its mental deity; Till a system was formed, which some took advantage of & enslav’d the vulgar by attempting to realize or abstract the mental deities from their objects: thus began Priesthood; Choosing forms of worship from poetic tales. And at length they pronounc’d that the Gods had order’d such things. Thus men forgot that All deities reside in the human breast.” – William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and He’ll.
