Happy Birthday, Lady Gaga (video)

The Key of Awesome; Seth Auberon, Ashley Wells, Sheldon (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly Wiki edit

That's a pad not a penis (2011).
Lady Gaga, 34 (born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta on March 28, 1986), is an American singer, songwriter, and actor long rumored to have a penis.

She is known for reinventing herself like Buddhist David Bowie throughout her career, though seeming to ape fellow Italian Roman Catholic Madonna (born Maria Louise Ciccone, Le Monde in August 16, 1958), and for her show business versatility.

Starting from the age of 11, she attended a private all-girls Roman Catholic school called the Convent of the Sacred Heart [Note 7], where she likely became bi or realized she was born this way. Lady Gaga described her high school self as "very dedicated, very studious, very disciplined" but also "insecure" [8].

I'm not like Madonna! I'm ennuchique.She
She began performing as a teenager, singing at open mic nights and acting in school plays. She studied at Collaborative Arts Project 21, through NY University's Tisch School of the Arts, before she became a drop out to pursue a music career.

When Def Jam Recordings cancelled her contract, she worked as a songwriter for Sony/ATV Music Publishing, where Akon helped her sign a joint deal with Interscope Records and his own label KonLive Distribution in 2007.

She rose to prominence the following year with her debut album, the electropop record The Fame, and its chart-topping singles "Poker Face" and "Just Dance." The album was reissued as The Fame Monster (2009), which included the hit singles "Bad Romance," "Alejandro," and "Telephone." More

Joe Biden accused of sexual assault (video)

Jimmy Dore (, 3/26/20); Ashley Wells, Seth Auberon, Wisdom Quarterly

Sabotaging a liberal agenda
This is how the Democratic party or DNC Corporation treats us. Against the liar and sexual predator Donny Trump, 73, they put up liar and sexual predator with dementia late onset cognitive decline Joey Biden, 77. What chance does this guppy have against the shark in the Swamp? And while we hoped Bernie Sanders, 78, were the real thing, it was the policies not his lip service.

    $2 trillion stimulus bill, bad Bernie (video)

    Comedian Jimmy Dore (, YouTube Channel), Matt Stoller, Dylan Ratigan; text by Seth Auberon and Pat Macpherson, Ashley Wells (ed.), Wisdom Quarterly

    Breaking News: Matt Stoller on Bernie's fake role in C-19 Bailout, Libertarian comedian Dave Smith 
    The Jimmy Dore Show
    (The Jimmy Dore Show) Jimmy Dore and his guests tell the unpleasant truth about the Democrats, our nominal affiliation. They are sell-outs in league with the Republicans in power. That's just the way it is. We need a third party, we've always needed a third party, and Bernie Sanders was never it. Joe Biden is a demented sexual addict and has been for a long time, a Washington insider, a predator in the Swamp.

    Your Country is Just NOT That Into You
    At least Trump looks like the shark in the pool he is, a filthy slime ball in the fish tank that is DC. That much can be said to his credit. Hillary, Joe Biden, and all the top Democratic presidential candidates -- with maybe the exception of pro-military Soldier Tulsi Gabbard and beloved Jill Stein, who's not running for the Green Party this time -- are corrupt.

    Dylan Ratigan: "Stimulus bill is an abomination beyond all comprehension"

    I'm yelling, but no one seems to be hearing me.
    Putting our trust in them is tantamount to Bible Belt Christians aligning with Trump after he lies about everything. We do not have a two party system. We pretend to. We have a one party system, the Money Party, filled with sellouts including stick figure Bernie.

    Real number: $14 trillion, 10, 2? Corporate news hides ugly truth of stimulus

    And Obama was no better, though we hold him up as a great president, because he did nothing he promised, nothing we elected him for. He was groomed for the job, and he deceived us from the inside the way Trump [transparently] tries to from the outside. The nominal-left is not the Left. Wake up, liberals. We have been tricked. Matt Stoller (author of Goliath) explains how in very strong terms.
    GOLIATH is a startling look at how concentrated financial power and consumerism transformed American politics, resulting in the emergence of populism and authoritarianism, the fall of the Democratic Party—while also providing the steps needed to create a new democracy. More

    St. Corona: Patron Saint of Epidemics (video), March 25, 2020 (updated 3/26/20);; KRQE News 13, 3/22/20; Crass; and Wiki edited by Pfc. Sandoval, Crystal Quintero, Ashley Wells (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly
    Local artists are looking to the ancient St. Corona, a 16-year-old martyr, for help after the Coronavirus outbreak stalls their business.

    The Internet is abuzz because the Holy Roman Catholic Church, with its CEO in the Vatican Corporation offices, has just unearthed a long forgotten female saint, St. Corona.

    The buzz is that she was the "patron saint of epidemics," as reported last night by dimwitted Government Operative George Noory on this country's largest radio station (, 3/25/20). She, along with Saint Victor, was originally the patron saint of treasure hunting and money.
    Saints Victor and Corona
    But about 1000 AD, Otto III brought St. Corona's relics to Aachen in western Germany. Though evidence is scarce that she was invoked against epidemics, Reuters reports that indeed she is "patron saint of epidemics" (

    Moreover, according to Reuters, her relics will be available for public veneration "once the coronavirus pandemic has passed."

    (Pray Unceasingly) Prayer to Saint Corona for protection against plague

    w/ Eve Libertine) "Reality Asylum" unprayer. WARNING: not suitable
    for Christian ears because it condemns sexist, war-loving religion via its icon.

    St. Corona
    Victor and Corona's memorial day is November 24 (Nov. 11 on the Greek Orthodox Church calendar). Their feast day is May 14 [about the time this pandemic should have faded away].

    In northern Italy, outside the town of Feltre, on the slopes of Mt. Miesna, there is a Church of Saints Vittore e Corona (, erected by the murderous European Crusaders from Feltre after the First Christian/Catholic Crusade that set out to kill infidel foreigners.

    St. Corona is venerated in Austria and eastern Bavaria, where she is invoked in connection with superstitions involving money, such as gambling and treasure hunting ("German cathedral dusts off relics of St. Corona, patron of epidemics,", March 25, 2020). More

    What PSYCHICS saw: COVID-19 (video)

    The views, information, or opinions expressed in video are solely those of the individuals involved and do not necessarily represent those of Be Inspired Channel, the primary purpose of which is to educate and inform. This channel does not constitute medical or other professional advice.

    Was it created in U.S. or Wuhan labs? Coronavirus COVID-19 predictions
    You will obey and not question civil authorities!
    It can't all be psychic intuition, as Dean Koontz just researched the most likely scenario (or was fed it by someone high up). Did Nostradamus write a quatrain about it? Did Fatima whisper? Did the Tibetan Oracle tell the current Dalai Lama?

    O, Mystic Masters, tell us what is really real.
    Another psychic went on Coast to Coast (3/24/20) to tell two-face host Noory that she saw a disease being "unleashed." She emphasized that exact word. At that time swine flu had been launched as a sort of test run to terrify the world. But she foresaw something much bigger around 2020.

    Cardi B and other laughable items from sensational entertainment media

    But Sylvia Browne, who published her prediction in a book, described this flu in detail and said it would suddenly disappear, as it's doing. Governments must be shutting off their 5G, a primary cause of this illness. But she says it will return ten years later.

    Controlled media (CNN) mocks 2020 "predictions" that barely came true.
    These sound like planned deployments of new and virulent bioweapons more than natural disease processes etiologists know about. Flu pandemics have radio, radar, and microwave radiation bombardment like 4G and 5G wifi as their basis. See Dr. Thomas Cowan, MD, science-activist Arthur Firstenberg, Dr. Devra Davis, psychic Rudolf Steiner, and for ample evidence the mainstream media will not be talking about.

    Meditation: Sundays on Zoom (video)

    Facebook CENSORING your content (video)

    Timcast IRL, 2/27/20; Organic Prepper; Pfc. Sandoval, Seth Auberon (eds.), Wisdom Quarterly
    Social media networks vow to censor "misinformation" about coronavirus (TOP).

    Is Facebook run by FBI or CIA?
    Facebook CENSORSHIP is terrifying and could make the effects of coronavirus worse. Using coronavirus fears as the pretext, Facebook is clamping down like the private arm of a police state -- industry supporting the military and public government -- on whatever it labels "misinformation." It has expressed its intention to BAN all content that they deem is "designed to create a sense of urgency" about the [epidemic] virus. Tim and Adam wonder if this is the worst approach, considering the potential for a growing [pandemic] outbreak.

    [Facebook, according to one of its vice presidents on, is hiding behind a cadre of 55 hired "fact checkers" or contractors who know what their real job is. No free speech, only government-approved speech.]

    Smarmy sellout, sincere broadcaster, useful idiot, what is Thom Hartmann? His program is played on Pacifica Free Speech Radio (, 90.7 FM) mornings in LA, and he was on subversive RT. An extreme moderate and a big disappointment is what he seems like most of the time. But he has moments of clarity. His Book Club selections are well chosen. Today it's Beyond the Valley by Ramesh Srinavasan. Good going, Uncle. Thom is trying to stay on air from his luxurious home in Seattle, pretending he's saving the world, sometimes "daring" to criticize Trump. *Yawn* We need more Lee Camp (Redacted Tonight) and Samantha Bee (Full Frontal). Even Seth Meyers (Late Night) gets more edgy than this. Step it up or step aside, Hartmann, and stop compromising and embarrassing progressives at every turn.

    What were the Buddha's last words?

    Sister Vajira, Francis Story (trans.), Maha-Parinibbana Sutra: "Last Days of the Buddha" (, DN 16) edited by Dhr. Seven, Amber Larson, Wisdom Quarterly

    Part VI: Passing Away: The Buddha's final words
    1. Now the Blessed One said, "Ananda, it may be that to some among you the thought will come: 'Ended is the word of the Teacher; we have a Teacher no longer.'

    "But, Ananda, it should not be considered in this way. For what I have proclaimed and made known as the Doctrine and Discipline (Dhamma-Vinaya), that shall be your Teacher when I am gone [beyond].

    2. "And, Ananda, though now the monastics address one another as 'friend,' let it not be so when I am not here. The senior monastics, Ananda, may address the junior ones by their name, their family name, or as 'friend,' but the junior ones should address the senior ones as 'venerable sir' or 'your reverence ' [Note 55].

    3. "Ananda, when I am no longer here, if it is desired, the Sangha (Monastic Community) may abolish the lesser and minor rules [56].

    4. "And, Ananda, when I am gone [beyond], let the higher punishment be imposed on the monk Channa" [57].

    "But, venerable sir, what is the 'higher punishment'?"

    "The monk Channa, Ananda, may say what he will, but the monastics should neither converse with him nor exhort him nor admonish him."

    There were monastics and many more devas.
    5. Then the Blessed One addressed the monastics, saying: "It may be, monastics, that one of you is in doubt or perplexity as to the Buddha, the Dharma, or the Sangha, the path or the practice. If that is so then raise a question, monastics! Do not feel remorse later with the thought, 'The Teacher was with us face to face, yet we failed to ask him.'"

    6. But when this was said, the monastics were silent. And a second and a third time the Blessed One said to them, "It may be, monastics, that one of you is in doubt or perplexity as to the Buddha, the Dharma, or the Sangha, the path or the practice. If that is so then raise a question, monks! Do not feel remorse later on with the thought, 'The Teacher was with us face to face, yet we failed to ask him.'"

    And for a second and a third time the monastics were silent. Then the Blessed One said to them, "Monastics, it may be out of respect for the Teacher that you ask no questions. Then, monastics, let friend communicate it to friend." Yet still the monastics were silent.

    7. Then Ananda said to the Blessed One, "O, venerable sir, it is marvelous and most wonderful! This confidence I have in the community of monastics, that not even one monastic is in doubt or perplexity as to the Buddha, the Dharma, or the Sangha, the path or the practice."

    "You speak out of confidence (faith), Ananda, but here the Tathagata knows for certain that among this community of monastics there is not even one monastic who is in doubt or perplexity as to the Buddha, the Dharma, or the Sangha, the path or the practice. For, Ananda, among this large number (500) even the lowest is a stream-enterer, secure from downfall, assured, and bound for enlightenment."

    8. And the Blessed One addressed them, saying: "Behold now, monastics, I exhort you: All compounded things are hurtling toward destruction. Strive with earnestness!" [58]

    This was the last word of the Tathagata (the Wayfarer, the One Arrived at Suchness, the Thus Come/Thus Gone One, the Buddha).

    How the Buddha passed into final-nirvana

    9. And the Blessed One entered the first absorption (jhana). Rising from the first absorption, he entered the second absorption. Rising from the second absorption, he entered the third absorption. Rising from the third absorption, he entered the fourth absorption. And rising out of the fourth absorption, he entered the sphere of boundless space (the fifth absorption). Rising from the attainment of the sphere of boundless space, he entered the sphere of boundless consciousness (sixth absorption). Rising from the attainment of the sphere of boundless consciousness, he entered the sphere of nothingness (seventh absorption). Rising from the attainment of the sphere of nothingness, he entered the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-perception (eighth absorption). And rising out of the attainment of the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-perception, he attained to the extinction of perception and feeling.

    10. Then Ananda commented, "Venerable Anuruddha, the Blessed One has passed away."

    "No, friend Ananda, the Blessed One has not passed away. He has entered the state of the extinction of perception and feeling" [59].

    Dimensional travel: all across the universe
    11. Then the Blessed One, rising from the extinction of perception and feeling, entered the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-perception. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of neither-perception-nor-non-perception, he entered the sphere of nothingness. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of nothingness, he entered the sphere of boundless consciousness. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of boundless consciousness, he entered the sphere of boundless space. Rising from the attainment of the sphere of boundless space, he entered the fourth absorption. Rising from the fourth absorption, he entered the third absorption. Rising from the third absorption, he entered the second absorption. Rising from the second absorption, he entered the first absorption (jhana).

    Rising from the first absorption, he entered the second absorption. Rising from the second absorption, he entered the third absorption. Rising from the third absorption, he entered the fourth absorption. And, rising from the fourth absorption, the Blessed One immediately passed into final nirvana.

    The World's Echo
    12. And when the Blessed One had passed into final nirvana, simultaneously there came a tremendous earthquake, hair raising and astounding, and thunder rolled across the skies. More

    NOTES: 55. In Pali, "friend" is avuso, "venerable sir" = bhante, "your reverence" = ayasma.
    56. Because Ananda, at this point, neglected to ask what the "minor" rules were, the Sangha decided not to abolish any of the rules of the Monastic Disciplinary Code (Vinaya).
    57. Channa had been the Buddha's charioteer when he was still Prince Siddhartha in the palace in Shakya Land [Scythia]. Because of his prior connection with the Buddha, he was obstinate and refused to submit to discipline. This imposition of the "higher punishment" (brahmadanda, "supreme stick or cudgel") humbled him into a cooperative and unhaughty monastic.
    58. Handa dani bhikkhave amantayami vo: Vayadhamma sankhara appamadena sampadetha. Earnestness (appamada) is explained as "presence of mindfulness." The Commentary explains, "'You should accomplish all your duties without allowing mindfulness to lapse!' Thus did the Blessed One, while on the bed of his final nirvana, summarize in that one word earnestness the advice he had given through 45 years [of his teaching ministry]."
    59. Ven. Anuruddha, the elder brother of Ananda, knew this through the super-normal ability to read the minds of others he possessed.

    Ajahn Chah: How to find right understanding

    Ajahn Chah ( via Ven. Sujato, Ellie Askew, Dhr. Seven (ed.), Wisdom Quarterly
    What? Are you serious, that's how I find noble "right view"? There has to be another way!
    When, not if. (Pema Chodron)
    How can you find right understanding? I can answer you simply by using this glass I'm holding.

    It appears to be clean and useful, something to drink from and keep for a long time, right? "Right understanding" is to see this as a broken glass, as if it has already shattered. Sooner or later it will shatter and lie destroyed.

    This glass is as good as broken, so use it.
    If you keep this understanding in mind while using it -- that all it is is a combination of elements which have come together in this form to break apart in line with nature -- then no matter what happens to the glass, you'll have no problem.

    This body is similar to this glass. It is also going to break apart. We die. You have to understand that.

    This one, too, and the bottle...and this body.
    Yet when you do, it doesn't mean you should go kill yourself, just as you shouldn't take that useful glass and shatter it or throw it away before it's served its usefulness.

    The glass is something to make use of until it falls apart -- in its own natural way. This right understanding can make you free in all the changing circumstances of the entire world.

    THE BUDDHA'S LASTS WORDS: "All things (that depend on conditions) are hurtling towards destruction; work out your awakening with diligence" (DN 16).

    "Open are the doors to the deathless (nirvana)" (MN 26), so make an end of rebirth and death.

    Jello: The Dead Kennedys were right (video)

    Lead singer Jello Biafra of the Dead Kennedys
    WWJD? What would Jello do? Jello Biafra is a genius, but too principled for most music lovers. The band the Dead Kennedys could have been big if they had agreed to change their name or comprised in many other ways.

    Eventually, in the end, the other members had to make money from their hit songs.

    Jello said no to selling out. He had his own label, Alternative Tentacles, to pay the bills. So they got someone else to stand in on tour (as the audience did most of the singing), and they hit the road.

    My t-shirt says something to believe in.
    The DKs foresaw many things that are happening now. They happened before but never so blatantly. Once in L.A. before a Democratic convention, they played a free concert in a downtown parking lot. The police raided it, shooting people with deadly projectiles (rubber bullets and beanbag rounds) as they ran away terrified.

    It was mayhem started by the LAPD, as usual, overreacting as a "show of force." The mainstream media didn't report that side of riots because who dares question police authority in favor of punks or peaceful demonstrators? Certainly not the LA Times or local news stations. Therefore, officers knew they could get away with it -- the same way

    (DKs) "California Uber Alles" (Pt. 1) from Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables
    • they get away with rape
    • racist enforcement of select laws
    • plant evidence
    • beat black motorists (Rodney King and many before him)
    • lie on the witness stand
    • ignore counter-evidence.
    (Alternative Tentacles) "Pandemic"? What would Jello do now? Let's ask

    He's watching by cell phone.
    It's not easy policing such a big city with such a small force, with a police to citizen ratio much smaller than a comparable city like New York. So city officials let them get away with it through the administrations of many police chiefs, paying out tens of millions in settlements to avoid lawsuits in the most egregious cases of crimes committed under color of law.

    Now the City of Los Angeles has the lockdown it always dreamed of. This looks like the "power trip" our police force was always on. People aren't afraid of "the enemy" enough. Pres. Trump is doing an asinine job as commander and chief. Youthful partygoers, yearning for spring break, keep flaunting this epidemic scare. It's as if they intuit that it's BS and we're not being told what's really going on. So it looks like Martial Law is on the horizon under one pretense or another. "The people demand it."

    (Dead Kennedys) "We've Got a Bigger Problem Now" (which is "California Uber Alles Part 2")

    Mayor Garcetti: Love LA. Obey me. I'm leader.
    Mayor Garcetti almost announced martial law on Sunday night. Mainstream media news reporters taunt him to impose fines at scofflaws, arrest kids at the beach, punish them, scare some sense into them, call them "selfish" for infecting no one by not staying six feet from each other. He'll crackdown soon.

    Real rebellion is from the inside out.
    It's the carrot and the stick. He's been promising carrots, so the dissatisfied need a stick. When there are more tests forced on everyone, who are as of today required to show government ID to be tested, the jump in reported cases will scare the living heck out of the population.

    They'll demand citizens like themselves be punished for disobeying what is not an infection but an illness brought about by microwave radiation. See Dr. Thomas Cowan's 10 minute talk at the March 2020 Health and Human Rights Summit in Arizona (
