The Hotel California

“I need more friends who are awake and ready to fight for freedom and the coming “New World Order”

Anonymous sticker found on a wall at Whole Foods 💩I found this 2 months ago before Biden said basically the same thing. Stupid people are scary.
These are stickers, flyers, graffiti and “art” that was taped on the walls of the Amazon grocery store, Whole Foods. WTF is going on here? “You can’t fight the resistance” with a demonic NWO wizard cat with eye pyramid? and “Be gay and smoke weed”
These are everywhere in my neighborhood. I used to think this was righteous. I felt an affinity to Native American culture. I loved victimhood, loved blaming others for my depression. Now I see this mentality as the same stance as permanent victimhood/demand for reparations. History is a bitch, we have to learn from the past, not repeat it and stand up with dignity. Constantly playing the victim role is ultimately defeatist. I finally understand this. When I was a liberal I felt entitled, like the world owed me everything for merely existing. Life is a gift, we can choose to take the hand we’re dealt and rise, despite the obstacles; that’s strength, that’s courage. Forgiveness is the ultimate higher ground.
This promotional flyer for a poetry reading event says so much to me about the lack of awareness at the Oakland Public Library. The irony is completely lost here in woke Oakland. Why portray the poet with a muzzled mask on? Can you hear her “brave”muffled Voice? Virtue signaling stupidity and compliance is what this library celebrates. It was a blessing in disguise to be fired from this insane asylum.
My next door neighbor used to have an American flag up but since liberals say the US flag stands for racism/white supremacy/Trump, they’re now virtue signaling solidarity with Ukraine. 💩
This photo was from 2018 at the City Lights Bookstore in San Francisco. I took this photo because I admired the Dreamer banners. I wasn’t kidding when I said I was a liberal before. Now I realize that there’s a reason for procedures, asylum has to be fair and citizenship should be earned not stolen. My parents immigrated legally, they knew no one in the USA, they never received a handout. They worked hard, saved money, bought a house and sent their children to college. Fairness is no longer valued in the US, it’s all about entitlement.
This is the rare exception, I agree with this neighbor.

“Anytime of year, you can find it here”…”We are all just prisoners here, of our own device.”

The Eagles” Hotel California

This song is so genius and creepy, but I liked it when I was a child. I didn’t understand the lyrics then. I think it has a haunting quality, it’s my official anthem for my time here in California both good and bad. Cults were birthed here for a reason, it’s a Mecca for radical people. The SF Bay Area broke my heart and spent my youth. I came here right after college. I was completely naive and was still a Christian then. Despite it all I know I will miss it, just like an addiction.

My advice to you, especially if you’re young is don’t come here. This place will drain your heart. Decades will pass in one year here and you will fall deeply asleep. When you wake up you’ll look in the mirror at an unrecognizable face with long, silver-grey hair. This place is amnesia, dreams and nightmares. Someone once told me that the San Francisco Bay Area is a place of healing but if you stay too long, it has the opposite effect. I overstayed my welcome I suppose. When I leave in a few months, I’ll leave with tears in my eyes 🥲. Life is but a dream.

  1. Wow, great post Judy! You should write a book about your awakening, chronicling your escape from CA. Sucks that’s the worlds ending, but I think it would be worth reading!

    1. Thank you Crandew! I’d love to write a book about my awakening here. It’s like we’ve been diagnosed with a terminal disease, we can still choose how we spend what time we have. I hope so. I’m so glad it’s back, thanks for letting me know! 🙂

  2. Living in the Bay Area is like living in the picture of Dorian Gray. You get older as the city stays the same age, thanks to the influx of highly educated youth pursuing tech opportunities. It was quite poetic the way you described it…I’m sorry you’re heartbroken but I get it. “Decades will pass in one year here and you will fall deeply asleep.” This is true because you’re having so much fun being there…but one day you wake up, and you just don’t fit in. Somehow, you’ve been left behind. So I ALMOST overstayed my welcome but sadly and reluctantly departed.

    1. Very true, thank you George. The city as Dorian Gray, exactly. You totally get it. It has the lure of hippie idealism merged with tech wealth, contradictions and constant new arrivals. I loved it here for so long, SF especially is like a SciFi portal of oddities, synchronicities, miracles. This place transformed me and now I’m returning full circle to who I was before arrival. It’s like a living movie, a drug, a shamanic psychedelic trip. It’s so hard to leave. It breaks you but also can make you wiser. Good that you escaped, it’s like a luring Siren, portal town.

    1. Thank you. California used to be affordable with perfect weather, it was once even a Republican state. Good choice to leave, it’s the state they practice liberal policies on before spreading it to the rest of the country. The free crack pipes distribution has been in effect here for decades before Biden extended it nationwide.

  3. I lived in CA for many years, but at least I was not raised there. I obviously was never a lefty.

    Understand I figured out it was I who was an actual open minded liberal many years ago, as they have on purpose inverted the perception of what the word means as being prideful is pure BIGOTRY like sexual deviant LGBT insane zombies.

    It is a LIE to call any KKK slavery lefty liberal, as they are the anti-thesis of one. Like I have stated before labels are for programming or brainwashing, and not the truth in today’s inverted world which Orwell so described in 1984 or Huxley in the Brave New World.

    I completely understand how they manipulated you to becoming a lefty you would find offense when I state emphatically KKK slavery lefties have absolutely NO intelligence and are complete zombies. They function off pure emotion and that is how they are easily manipulated.

    In CA the group of friend I partied with were mostly lefties in what would be regarded as white color highly educated people, which I now know is merely highly indoctrinated. I left the Republicans 30 years ago but I really had no idea where to go. I know the whole thing is completely rigged at this point. Even though I was in the minority, I intellectually silenced all lefties on screwbook, parties I attended (where lefties would say don’t talk politics when I was there). Lefties are not capable of debate and that is why they are all BIGOTS. Sad but true as lefties will try to shut down all debate due to their inability to form a complete sentences.

    An open minded liberal like myself always wants to debate.

    1. I understand your frustration Socrates, but I think you also use labels often such as lefties. Red vs Blue is a rigged wrestling match, it’s all drama to divide us into identity politics. I’m neither left or right, I don’t believe my vote is counted, it’s all rigged. They give us the illusion of democracy to control us and keep us passive. Right wing, left wing = same thing. They’re all dancing partners. I bet Pelosi parties with the Donald after the curtains close. “They’re in one big club and we ain’t in it” as George Carlin said. I get frustrated with rabid woke activists but I know they’ve been brainwashed so pathetic as they act, I want to have compassion for them, not return the misguided hatred that they send out. I want to take the higher ground help them with their mental illness, I truly believe they need help. The words liberal and feminist have lost their original meaning so I no longer use those terms to describe myself. Anger thrown back and forth is what the controllers want us to do.

      1. I assure you my Socratic logic is such that any label I use will be backed up by logical FACTS!

        I know liberal has been branded erroneously on purpose for lefties but the base meaning behind the word is open minded. Lefties are the anti-thesis of open minded. Thus, they are NOT liberal in the least rendering the rest of the brainwashed meaning of the word obsolete.

        The reason I call myself a true open minded liberal is it is simply the Truth. Calling a lefty a liberal is a LIE Rightys are still in the false left vs. right paradigm so they are also bigots.

        I tell the truth and that is really all it is. I know it won’t be accepted, but I do it anyway!

        I haven’t become an activist because I wanted to, I became one because I figured out the Truth and have the moral obligation to do something about it.

        Like our pedophile evil controllers who fight mainly with word by using the operation mockingbird media, I also fight with words, but my Truth while I acknowledge is uncomfortable due to how much we have been bombarded with mind control our whole lives, is still merely the truth.

        “All truth passes thru 3 stages.

      4. Socrates, I don’t doubt your motivations, we’re in the same boat. After I was red-pilled I felt obligated to share the information. The information is soul-sickening, very difficult to know, it honestly feels like a burden to share the research. I get trolled, ridiculed, ignored; I lost my popularity on WP, being labelled a conspiracy theorist sucks. I didn’t want to be a truther, I loved movies, music, didn’t have a notion about the underbelly darkness in the world. But once you realize nothing’s the same anymore. I don’t consider myself an activist, just a writer/artist sharing my research. I changed the focus of my blog because of being red-pilled, believe me I know what you’re talking about. I want to do the opposite of what the puppeteers want us to do that’s all I’m pointing out. You’re “preaching to the choir” I don’t need convincing.

    1. I agree, Sylvester. I want to dislike the song but it’s a genius level song. The lyrics totally describe the lure and trap of fame, money and California. There’s occultic references too, their album cover had a hidden shadowy figure standing in the balcony that many allege was Anton Lavey who created the church of Satan. Creepy! Whenever I hear that song it transports me to when I was little. Funny that I was listening to it in elementary school my siblings were much older than me so I listened to their music from the 70s.
      I feel sad and scared of the unknown future relocation, but I’m thinking this is fate, that God is guiding my path. The sadness actually brings me more connection to God, hard to explain. It’s that I’m putting my trust in God and trying to live consciously, not by my preference anymore. Thank you my friend! You are awesome too 🙏❤️!

  5. I grew up in Southern California (Palos Verdes/Torrance areas). Both were relatively conservative for most of my childhood (70s and 80s). I noticed the state really started to change somewhere around the Obama years, or maybe that’s just because I was an adult and my eyes were opening to the corruption. Then it seemed to go on hyperdrive toward liberalism. We left Cali in 2012. I miss the beaches, but know we will never move back. That Eagles song for years freaked me out. We took a family trip to San Francisco (I think I was around seven years old) and I got real sick on that trip. High fever, hallucinations from the fever, the whole thing. And for some reason that song must have been popular around that time and playing on the radio so I equated it with the experience. Ironically, the “Hell Freezes Over” concert on YouTube is now my mellow-out music. Most of my family is still in Cali, barely able to afford it, but most of my friends have left. It was once a really nice place to live. Now it is unrecognizable from the place I grew up in. Best of luck on your new adventure.

    1. We’re probably close in age, generation x. I agree that it changed drastically during the Obama years. Rents doubled overnight, homeless camps everywhere in parks where my toddler used to play. Ironically I think Trump increased the liberal fanaticism, seems intentional to divide and conquer us into factions. From normal debates to being attacked with a bike lock by a CA Professor of Ethics (true story!) what happened? Hyperdrive radicalism. Hotel California is a creepy haunting song to me, but it’s like a ghost, it clings to my memory in a beautiful way. I was the same age as you I think, definitely in elementary school. I remember being at the library with my older sister, we found an Eagles songbook and we sang that song in the library of all places ha! That’s when there were still shushing librarians, back in the day. I’ll miss California, 30 yrs here, I guess survived it. Thank you for the good luck wishes.

  6. I lived in Texas for work for a time. Not sure where you are going. I hear Austin is like California because a lot of companies moved there. Otherwise many areas are not liberal like California. A lot of people still have values. There are a lot of nice places. I would say try to be involved in the community in some way. Visit churches, join a club related to your passions. It is how you get to know people. Visit other towns when you are there. There are a lot of nice little towns or areas of cities. I give this advice because I have heard of people who moved to a southern state, but did not try to get out there and meet anyone and they ended up back here in NY.

      1. You may be happier there. A co-worker and her family is looking for land outside of SA to buy. She wants to retire there as does her brother and his family. They are looking for neighbouring land. I think she wants to have a house built on it after she retires up here in a few years. Her brother is already down there living in a rental scoping things out. Look into Asian American groups in the area. I know some cities have acitve groups that have classes for kids on the weekends. I guess they are like the cultural centers for different groups we have in New York. They can learn dance, music, the language etc.by attending events or classes. I know in the Dallas Ft. Worth area the Vietnamese and Koreans have active groups.

    I agree with George’s description that living in the Bay area is like living in the picture of Dorian Gray.

    The Eagles’ Hotel California with its haunting creepy mood and lyrics actually sum up the state of California very well.

  8. I felt this one. I have been to the Bay Area and spent some time wandering north. My grandfather spent time there in WWII at Mare island and SF. He had the honor of watching in horror as a freighter rammed their Navy Destroyer in the fog right after they loaded up on ammunition to sail to Okinawa. He wouldn’t recognize it. All of my family except siblings have passed away and as much as I miss them, I’m glad they didn’t have to see their country descend into Hell.

    I can imagine how apprehensive it is to move to a new place and essentially start over. My life was constant moving from birth thrust my adult life. I became adept at moving, reestablishing myself, and finding the good parts of my new location. This included moving to foriegn countries where I was like a child learning language, customs, financial systems and so on. I lived in Korea for almost 5 years and embraced it with open arms. But never was I ever without that nervous questioning as I set foot into worlds I’d never seen before. It was my adventurous spirit that saved me. Otherwise, I think I would curl up in a ball in a box and wait for some strange cat to find me so we could be friends. I enjoy your voice for a better world. You see truth while others chase fantasy. I hope your move goes well for you and your little one. I look forward to your posts about your new place.

      1. I’m glad you can feel encouraged. It sounds like you are leaving a big part of your life for a new one. I’m not sure about the Korean community there but it won’t be hard to find. And, if the Covid restrictions are lifted, Dallas has direct flights to Korea. My last trip to Korea was on business to train soldiers around 2009, I think. Everything had changed from before and all for the good. I enjoyed the stay and I always avoid staying in the tourist areas and get out into the authentic parts of the cities and small villages and visit historical sights. I eat the local food and just enjoy myself. When I lived there I would ride my bike way out into the country and I found a little store that sold my favorite watermelon popsicle to cool down and just decided to sit next to a grandmother and I gave her one of the popsicles. She told me to give her money instead. The other Korean people laughed so I gave the popsicle to a little boy and then gave her 2000 won. She popped right up and went in the store and bought what she wanted and gave me half. It was so much fun and before we all broke up and went our different ways, I could see everyone was happy. I was a strange sight like the man from mars but we had that little moment of connection. So many people from other countries come to Korea but I never saw them out in the countryside. They stay mainly in the bigger cities like Seoul or Busan. I hope you’ll find your happy spot with good people in San Antonio and enjoy your new experiences there. Because you are awesome too! 🤗

Like all of humanity, perfection is not achieved but there is much to admire about what Koreans have managed to do in bringing their country to the top ten of nations for education, technology, and quality of life. What ever one believes, one on one interactions done the right way is rewarded 100 times over. Korea had a 30 day quarantine that cost the visitor about $90 to $100 a day. That kept people who didn’t have government or corporate backing out. I’m not sure if that is still in effect but once it is dropped, I hope you can go. They have done a super job keeping the natural parks and recreation areas in great shape the last time I went there and of course the nature areas are gorgeous. I loved hiking in the mountains.

I’m totally biased about this but Korean culture has such authentic soul and sincerity (that’s how I was raised in my family), maybe things have modernized but that’s what I always loved. When I watch Korean films/shows it’s still apparent so I think I’m not imagining it. They have heart, deep connection, deep love; it’s called Jung in Korean. It’s what would make mothers throw themselves on the coffins of their loved ones, some would commit suicide if their child died! It’s pretty extreme! Very dramatic but real. Maybe I’m describing old school Koreans but that’s what I am. Thank you for elevating Korean culture with what you experienced. I bow to you my friend :).

I know they would work for the soul of the group and would sync up to the necessary tasks at hand and naturally the speed at which they master tasks shows what they can do. I love love love Korean music, dance, entertainment and their movies are the best for the reasons you explain. I have often said that the future of the world belongs to Korea. They are true survivors and no one has worked harder to establish national identity and to preserve their cultural. Progress is inevitable with economic growth but the soul of the people is fundamentally sound and deeply connected in positive ways.

We have a great zkorean community here and there are enough Korean stores where we can get what we need. Tiger Mom also goes to the market in Atlanta with her friends and they stock up on everything.

      11. Thank you Judy, I think our respective connection to ancient Asian wisdom has blessed us with a clarity of sight others without exposure to Asian Culture cannot possess. I think judging from Tiger Moms approach to artistic presentation of Korean cuisine is you don’t have to indulge in complex processes. Unless it’s a traditional meal for a special occasion and then she can spend three whole days making it from raw foods to art in a bowl. Otherwise she preps and serves in true Korean lightening fast style. Doing a little digging around I found 44,996 Asian population reported in San Antonio’s latest count. 3,034 are Koreans so large Asian population but not so many Koreans. My wife works with the Korean American Business Association. I’ll ask her if there are any contacts in San Antonio and if so, I’ll give you the contacts if you want to contact them for information. Of course, they will immediately ask you to join in their Church fellowship and to be honest, regardless of one’s faith, no one does social outreach to each other and new comers like the Koreans. If you deem them good people, you can certainly enjoy their company.

      16. You got it down if you dream in Korean. I embarrassed myself in Korea trying to speak Korean. Pronunciation is everything and I really struggle with that. I used to have fun writing my Korean name. It’s a long story but no hotel became No Ho Tae so that’s how I signed my name in Korean. That really caused some head scratching. My wife is no help because she speaks a difficult dialect and I can’t understand a word she says. She likes it that way. I can understand people from Seoul. They speak very clearly to me. Now, I pretty much am deaf and dumb when it comes to speaking and understanding. 😶‍🌫️🤭

      17. Thanks for the reassurance, it’s in my brain but I have trouble retrieving it. My pronunciation isn’t perfect, I have a Korean/American accent :). I think if was was in Korea for 6-12 months it would return. Funny story about your name spelling 😅. What dialect does your wife speak? I can understand conversation in korean films but can’t understand the news broadcast because it’s more formal language. I think it’s a very poetic language and culture.

      18. It’s hard to keep up with if it’s not your daily dialog. I used to speak German fluently without a thought for translations but after I left in 1987, I only went back for short business trips and lost pretty much everything I learned. There are a lot of languages I’d like to learn but ultimately the only one I’d use is Latin. Mrs Tiger Mom was born and raised in the Busan area. So, she has a southern drawl 😄

      19. They are indeed! I’ve always been curious about how languages evolved and are so unique to a region of the world even tho we Homo Sapiens have been migrating all over the planet for a very long time.

      20. The Tower of Babel—I’m going to write a post and poem on that. You’ve inspired me. Also I want to give you a heads up that my next post features 👿 Marina A. Perhaps best to skip that one. I hope it doesn’t effect our No to Anal Probes Association, so many unintentional puns.

      21. I am thrilled you are inspired. Tower of Babel is alive and well. It makes me think miscommunication is our nature not the other way around. Nothing you post offends me. I like your effort to expose the Bolsheviks and ask for a little moral and ethical behavior among the peasantry.

        I am still researching on my no anal probes manifesto for our association founded on the principle of returning dignity to the poor and much assaulted posterior of the people.

      22. Glad to heard that. Much confusion in the world, the rug’s been pulled out from under. The peasants need to wake from their slumber but I’m scared of that too, they’re not very smart and they’re too easily led. I’m one too but I’ve always been a dissident, always an outsider.

        Assaulted posteriors matter! The PC police will attack me for saying that 😅

      23. Waa haaa haaaa! I think I must be a dissident too because I find aggravating the PC Police great sport. I l think “Assaulted Posteriors Matter” (APM) is perfect for our Headquarters banner. I recently read where the BLM Grand Poobah bought themselves a 6 million dollar mansion with donated funds. When asked about that they replied it was nobody’s business what they did with donations. That is certainly corruption with pride in accomplishment. That will certainly increase windfall profits on the backs of the peasantry.

      24. I like the APM acronym we need to work on the logo next! 😅. Yes the founder bought several mansions with BLM funds, I heard they lost corporate sponsorship after they were caught scamming. I consider it black on black crime, since only the ghettos were burned not the gated communities.

      25. My mind is racing through logos now. Some of my ideas are not PC. I’ll find a way to visually promote a safe and non probed environment for people who value privacy for their posterior. I don’t follow the news closely but it did seem there was little obsessive compulsive reporting on the BLM issue. Ultimately, the movement was invaded by freaks and the message lost to the usual corruption.

      26. I was hoping APM would be anti-PC actually :). When I didn’t know the details, I thought BLM was ok but statistically their premise was false. I’m not saying there isn’t police corruption, there definitely is but it’s not focused on racism. Regardless of race, do the unintelligent outnumber the intelligent? I think that’s the core problem.

      27. I think intelligence, emotional and biological is becoming another disdainful human attribute to the left and must be cancelled. They started with themselves first. I do indeed think the Justice system is completely rogue and BLM had a point initially but corruption and infiltration by criminals has rendered them pointless. Very sad outcome. That means any legitimate gains they made were wiped away.

      28. BLM is a pure RACIST domestic terrorist HATE group run by the communists.

        If Black lives really mattered to them, why didn’t they protest the KKK Planned Parenthood clinics?

        Do people still deny that KKK slavery democrats are obviously RACIST? How is this possible?

      29. KKK slavery democrats simply are not conscious. All they do is psychologically project what they are guilty. This is a FACT!
