American Goddess of The Wheat

Our President is being sued by the White Farmers of the Holy Wheat which is the ongoing theme I have been stuck in since I rescued The Corn Goddess from Venice Beach, she not but fifty feet from what she fears – THE SEA! That Irene Victoria Christensen, ends up marrying a British Commodore – and living on the Isle of Wight – is a mind-blowing happening that I jumped on, being, her husband and their daughter were expert sailors. This story reeks of Greek and Roman God Worship which the artist Thomas Hart Benton understood was our nation’s core cosmology. His painting of Persephone might have influence Andrew Wyeth’s ‘Christine’s World’ which I see as ‘Christensen’s World’. After my muse wrote me about she and her rancher husband’s hip problems, that will not allow him to throw hay at his cattle in Montana, I had a plan where she would send me that shoe box of her old photographs, that I will turn into works of arts, that will be displayed at a first rate gallery. We would split the proceeds. I would title the show ‘Rancher’s Mercy’. Well, they don’t want mercy. These hayseeds are the world’s leading maker of…..White Whine!

The complaint argues that some white ethnic groups have also faced discrimination in the past and that they should “unambiguously qualify as members of a ‘socially disadvantaged group,’ and as ‘socially disadvantaged farmers or ranchers.’”

I never suggested Rena and I live together in my letter to her minister asking him to ask Rena if she wanted any contact with me. She’s the one that breached the subject, then, realizing she had opened Pandora’s Box – along with the declaration she wants to be installed in my Muse Hall of Fame – who “must not embark on an affair of the heart” – then may I suggest this is EXACTLY how the Eleusinian Mysteries began, if they began at all. This might be a fake mystery created after Wise Men – and Wise Women – perceived the end of the immortal gods, et. all, which is the theme of the movie, ZARDOZ! “My husband would be very hurt” suggests she considered his feelings – to a real possibility. Was Helen of Troy a Wheat Goddess?

I am perceived as “quite left-leaning” as she says at the end of her long letter, she poised to wrap mysterious presents on Christmas Day. God – I love this mysterious woman who pleads a case for her agrarian followers as the Red-neck Woman. I am furious she lay down with a Dumb Clodhopper who does not challenge her mind – like I did! I was the first! She was a A+ Student who was skipped a grade and got a scholarship to the University of Nebraska. What did she learn – how to pose nude in the nearby woods for a total stranger?

Eleusinian Mysteries – Wikipedia

The rites, ceremonies, and beliefs were kept secret and consistently preserved from antiquity. For the initiated, the rebirth of Persephone symbolized the eternity of life which flows from generation to generation, and they believed that they would have a reward in the afterlife.[6] There are many paintings and pieces of pottery that depict various aspects of the Mysteries. Since the Mysteries involved visions and conjuring of an afterlife, some scholars believe that the power and longevity of the Eleusinian Mysteries, a consistent set of rites, ceremonies and experiences that spanned two millennia, came from psychedelic drugs.[7] The name of the town, Eleusís, seems to be Pre-Greek, and is likely a counterpart with Elysium and the goddess Eileithyia.[8]

I took LSD with all members of the Zorthian family. Jiryar Zorthian was a General in the Armenia Army and as a child he fled from Turkey. As far as I know Betty did not drop, but, we did LSD in her home when it was legal. Tobin and I did this psychedelic shoot-out at the O.K. Coral with his fast draw pistol and holster. I had everyone in stiches as I did this routine, where the bullet was slowed down due to I being on LSD, and thus I could have a shoot-out with myself – I able to outrun the bullet. Barry and Seybern, lived with Nancy, Christine, and I in the Idle Hand’s commune in San Francisco. We knew the manufacturers of LSD. Their father was inspired by Thomas Benton, and did many murals. A mural about the CIA and War – is missing!

Rena told me she and her twenty-six year old lover did LSD in Grand Island Nebraska in 1970, when she was seventeen. I wonder if this is why she went to the Sheriff’s office to complain about me, she wanting to put all that behind her, unless her husband find out, and, evict her from their trailer on the hill overlooking their cattle that they get $100,000 dollars to raise. She is like Persephone who holds a sheaf of wheat in her hand, because she is The Wheat Goddes that is raised from the Underworld in the spring. She might be one of the oldest Deities in the world because learning how to harvest the grasses of the world, is the advent of civilization. She born the idea of DYING and being RESURRECTED. The complaint these White Wheat Growers have, stems from the evangelical churches they go to, where the white minister tells his Wheat-fed Flock not everyone in America believes Jesus died for their sins, thus, there are enemies in the United States that want to make sure White Farmers and Ranchers – FAIL!

On this day I render Persephone the Goddess of LSD which stems from the ergot found in the mold on wheat. That is a sheaf of wheat on the menorah placed on the Altar of Rena. I offer sanctuary to Zhu who should sue because his Freedom of Religion is being oppressed. May Zhu find shelter in the arms of the Wheat Goddess who had to know of the secret mind-altering Gift to Humanity, that was offered up – in her hand!

I took my first LSD trip fifty-six years ago. There was a debate about us being anti-Vietnam War, because, it is was a ILLUSION. The Wheat Eaters wanted to stop the spread of the Rice Eaters, who were being armed by the Rival Wheat Eaters of Russia. No Wheat Eater wants to see any Military Budget CUT, because that takes away THEIR DIVINE PROTECTION from the Son of Peace – who is not a White Man! Charlie Mason and his Cult murdered other LSD takers. But for this, Takers have been pretty peaceful. In a Sane World, Zhu would be fired for wanting Taiwan to go to war with China, where millions of Rice Eaters will die a insane death. But, pay me no mind. This kind of thinking comes from the Blessed Persephone!

The co-founder and former CEO of $2 billion marketing startup Iterable says he was squeezed out of the company for taking LSD on the job

San Francisco-based Iterable reportedly sent out a memo to staff on Monday announcing that co-founder Justin Zhu was fired for violating company policy, but Zhu told Bloomberg on Tuesday that the board ousted him for taking the psychedelic before a meeting in 2019.

Beyond the “junkyard” is a rich history that son Alan is keen to preserve and protect. The Zorthian siblings have made concerted efforts to keep a recorded history of their family’s work, and have photographs of their father’s murals in humidity controlled containers. As to where some of the original ones are, like the “Phantasmagoria of Military Intelligence Training,” they have no idea. While converting this photographed mural to a digital format, Alan emphasizes, “We would love to know where it is! It’s a 157-foot mural documenting the process of people in training preceding the formation of the CIA.”

Our Legacy – zorthianranch

Jirayr Zorthian was born in Turkish Armenia in 1911. As such, he was fortuitously positioned to experience the Armenian Genocide, which followed soon after. He and his immediate family, although psychically scarred, miraculously survived the experience. They immigrated to the United States in 1922 settling in New Haven, Connecticut.

During World War II Jirayr was inducted into the U.S. army where he produced propaganda posters for the war effort, including a 157-foot long mural  for the pentagon. This work, entitled “The Phantasmagoria of Military Intelligence”(hyperlink to image), he considered to be his crowning achievement as a fine artist.

Survivors and descendants — including a vocal Armenian diaspora in the United States — have campaigned for decades to get other governments across the world to recognize the killings as an act of genocide. About 30 countries have now characterized the events that way.

Persephone is a 1939 painting by the American painter Thomas Hart Benton. It depicts the Greek goddess Persephone, resting nude by a tree in a rural Midwestern setting. Benton, dressed in farmer’s clothes, plays the role of Pluto and peeks from behind the tree.

 The myth of her abduction and return to the surface represents her functions as the embodiment of spring and the personification of vegetation, which sprouts from the earth in spring and disappears into the earth after harvest. In Classical Greek art, Persephone is invariably portrayed robed, often carrying a sheaf of grain. She may appear as a mystical divinity with a sceptre and a little box, but she was mostly represented in the process of being carried off by Hades.

Persephone as a vegetation goddess and her mother Demeter were the central figures of the Eleusinian mysteries, which promised the initiated a more enjoyable prospect after death. The origins of her cult are uncertain, but it was based on ancient agrarian cults of agricultural communities. To her alone were dedicated the mysteries celebrated at Athens in the month of Anthesterion.

Erdogan said the American leader’s “wrong step” would hinder bilateral relations, and he hinted strongly at hypocrisy, urging the U.S. to “look in the mirror.”

Breaking with previous administrations, Mr. Biden described the deadly forced deportation of well over a million Armenians from the Ottoman Empire — modern-day Turkey — at the beginning of World War I as “a genocide.”

“Each year on this day, we remember the lives of all those who died in the Ottoman-era Armenian genocide and recommit ourselves to preventing such an atrocity from ever again occurring,” Mr. Biden said in a statement on April 24, widely recognized as Armenian Genocide Remembrance Day.   

Even political rivals inside Turkey closed ranks over Mr. Biden’s statement. Turkey’s leading opposition Republican People’s Party echoed the government’s criticism and called the statement “a serious mistake.”https://products.gobankingrates.com/r/e48f149e71a19f66115d5f5c8edaefd8?subid=

What happened in 2015, and since?

Historians say that in the summer and autumn of 1915, Armenian civilians were forced from their homes and marched through the valleys and mountains of Eastern Anatolia (Turkey) towards the Syrian desert. Armenian leaders say 1.5 million civilians died of starvation and disease as about 90% of the ethnic group in Anatolia were driven from their homes.     

Turkey’s government says Armenian armed gangs posed a national security threat as they were colluding with Western-allied Russia to enable the occupation of eastern provinces of the Ottoman Empire.

President Recep Tayyip Erdogan became the first Turkish leader to offer condolences for the Armenian deaths when, in 2014, he acknowledged that the events of 1915 had “inhumane consequences,” and expressed hope that those who had died were at peace.

Historian Umit Kurt is skeptical of the defense offered by Turkish officials of the deportations. He told CBS News that officials who deny the charge of genocide should explain why Armenian properties were seized and then sold off by the state. The homes were distributed among local Ottoman elites and Muslim refugees quickly after the Armenians were forced out, virtually erasing the ethnic group’s longtime presence in the region. 

“The seizure of properties shows the Ottoman rulers never expected Armenians to return.” Kurt told CBS News. 

U.S.-Turkey relations

The decision by the U.S. leader to use the highly-charged word was “political,” Faruk Logoglu, a former Turkish Ambassador to the United States, told CBS News. “Biden’s decision is likely to stir the hornet’s nest, and it will have medium and long-term consequences for Turkey-U.S. ties.”  

For sure, Mr. Biden’s remark couldn’t have come at a more delicate time for the two NATO allies.a military truck traveling down a road: U.S. kicks Turkey out of fighter jet program 04:00© Provided by CBS News U.S. kicks Turkey out of fighter jet program 04:00

The relationship has been strained for years over Turkey’s purchase of Russian S-400 missile defense systems. The Russian missiles are considered a threat to NATO’s own defense systems in the region, and it all comes at a time when Russia is locked in a standoff with the West over its actions in eastern Ukraine — the sharp edge of Russia’s geographic sphere of influence.

The U.S. sanctioned Turkey specifically over the purchase of the Russian missile systems and kicked the country out of the project with NATO partners to develop the advanced F-35 fighter jet.

The rift between Turkey and the U.S. has also deepened in recent years over America’s support for Kurdish rebels in Syria. The U.S. has relied for a decade on the Syrian Kurds as an affective ally in the fight against ISIS extremists, but Turkey considers Syria’s Kurdish militias terrorists with links to the PKK, an armed separatist group fighting for greater autonomy in southern Turkey.a group of people walking down a dirt road: Ongoing impact in Syria after U.S. leaves 01:59© Provided by CBS News Ongoing impact in Syria after U.S. leaves 01:59

In a 2020 interview with The New York Times, Mr. Biden said he’d “spent a lot of time” with Erdogan, and he called him an “autocrat.”

On Monday night, Turkey’s government said Mr. Biden would meet his Turkish counterpart on the sidelines of a NATO summit in June. The genocide remark will be just the latest issue adding to the tension in the room.

Armenian voices today

Survivors and descendants — including a vocal Armenian diaspora in the United States — have campaigned for decades to get other governments across the world to recognize the killings as an act of genocide. About 30 countries have now characterized the events that way.

Recent history has also been marked by trauma for the roughly 60,000 ethnic Armenians who still live inside Turkey. The assassination of a prominent Armenian journalist, Hirant Dink, by a Turkish ultra-nationalist in 2007 showed that the small community could still be targeted.

A recent survey conducted by a foundation set up by Dink’s family found that Armenians are still the most-maligned minority group by Turkish media outlets.

Americans are not happy that more than 6,000 people per day are entering our country illegally thanks to President Biden’s determination to destroy his predecessor’s legacy. They are especially displeased that thousands of undocumented people – many apparently sick with COVID-19 – are being shipped into towns and cities across the country, with no federal support to care for them. And, yes, they are angry that more than 20,000 unaccompanied children are being housed in terrible conditions, all because Biden couldn’t resist undoing President Trump’s successful efforts to staunch the flow of migrants into our country.

Bulgaria alleges Russian links to arms depot blasts, widening European probes into Moscow agents (msn.com)

Bulgarian prosecutors said Wednesday they are looking at whether four explosions at weapons depots over the past decade are part of a Russian effort to disrupt the flow of arms from Eastern Europe to battlefields in Ukraine and Georgia.

Bulgaria’s announcement followed claims by Czech authorities last week that they suspect two agents from unit 29155 in Russia’s GRU intelligence agency were linked to blasts at an arms warehouse in the Czech Republic in 2014.

The agents they named were the same suspects as those British authorities linked to the 2018 poisoning of former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in 2018 in Salisbury, England.

Both Czech and Bulgarian authorities have linked consignments of arms in the targeted warehouses to the Bulgarian arms dealer Emilian Gebrev, who survived a 2015 poisoning. Two other Bulgarians, including Gebrev’s son, were sickened.

It might be North Korea, China, Iran, Russia or someplace most have never heard of. It may be a provocation to test a new president, or it may be an unforeseeable incident or action unrelated to diplomatic politics. It could be ephemeral or enduring.

The most striking example is the terrorist attacks on 9/11 which transformed the George W. Bush presidency. So did the ill-fated Bay of Pigs invasion of Cuba affect the Kennedy administration.

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller is suing the Biden administration for allegedly discriminating against white farmers.

Why Turkey calls Biden’s Armenian genocide remark a “serious mistake” (msn.com)

“These racial exclusions are patently unconstitutional, and the court should permanently enjoin their enforcement,” a complaint about the Biden administration’s policy of excluding white farmers in its COVID-19 relief package said. “Doing so will promote equal rights under the law for all American citizens and promote efforts to stop racial discrimination, because ‘[t]he way to stop discrimination on the basis of race is to stop discriminating on the basis of race.’”

The complaint argues that some white ethnic groups have also faced discrimination in the past and that they should “unambiguously qualify as members of a ‘socially disadvantaged group,’ and as ‘socially disadvantaged farmers or ranchers.’”

“Indeed, throughout American history, many white ethnic groups have been subject to ‘racial or ethnic prejudice because of their identity as members of a group without regard to their individual qualities,’ including Irish, Italians, Germans, Jews and eastern Europeans,” the complaint reads.
