In the Middle Ages, when lighting a fire from scratch was an arduous process, people often carried a metal box containing a smoldering cinder, kept alight throughout the day with little bits of kindling. In this way, someone could light a fire with ease wherever he went, because he always carried the spark. Our universe is alive with sparks. At our fingertips, we have an infinite capacity to light a spark of possibility. Passion, rather than fear, is the igniting force.

The practice of enrollment is about giving yourself as a possibility to others and, in turn, being ready to catch their spark. Enrolling others is not about forcing, cajoling, tricking, bargaining, pressuring or guilt-tripping someone into doing something your way. Enrollment is the art and practice of generating a spark of possibility for others to share. Enrollment is about playing together as partners in a field of light.

“The Art of Possibility” Rosamuth Stone Zander and Benjamin Zander

There are a lot of quotes about not having yet begun to fight, it ain’t over until the fat lady sings, etc. 

The forces of evil have more money and more power, but re-double your effort, put more creative thought into the daily pot, ask for help from whatever your source of strength, power and inspiration, and get a good night’s sleep.

We need everyone on deck tomorrow.





[Ed.: I awoke this morning with a dream. This is not in and of itself a strange thing.  When you get old, you sleep less, and you sleep more lightly, and nosies awaken you more easily, and your mind does its usual thing while it files away the day’s images, issues and intricacies. And you have to empty your bladder more often.

One of the times I awoke, I grabbed a clothing catalog off the nightstand and persued some stuff, and then I roilled over and went back to sleep. The next dream featured me at a meeting wearing some of the clothing in that catalog. Sometimes the mind is a conduit for less-than-useful stuff.

The next time I awoke, I had to take my special q 12 h anti-arrhythmic, though I’m hard pressed to understand why since I had a complete atrial ablaton and have a dual-chambered pacemaker. Da-bumpdiddy-bump. At least doc cut back on the dosage which helped with the fatigue, dizziness, lightheadedness, and headache, but these are minor matters when one is alive, ambulatory, and capable of productive contribution in even the slightest of ways.

With the pill in, the next simple step was to send a pre-written standardized text to the nurse, the one I married 40 years ago, who monitors my well-being like a owl monitors the brush at the riverbank.  I have the text scaled down to a 25-letter code that expresses things well in a cryptographic if loving way.

The text was sent, and I rolled over and went back to sleep for a delightful extra few hours. I burn the midnight oil until 3 or 4 4 AM putting together Occurences.  The data tells me I get about a reader an hour at peak, but I know the data is cooked, and I know I have readers throughout the world because you send me the pingbacks, and the links that promote your small business enterprises, some of which I will allow and some of which I won’t. I appreciate that in the world we live in, the next few drops of income are vital.  That data being cooked as well.

In the next dream (the one I awoke with and carried throughout the day), I was working with others and holding in my arms the corpse of a thin, tall emaciated boy-child helping to prepare him for burial. The skeletal corpus turned to me and said “Continue to give what you can until there is nothing left to give.”

“The Lord works in mysterious ways”, I was told as a boy..

The day advanced in the usual way and I collected the links of the articles of many who had said simply and clearly that the events in Syria were simply not what the mainstream press said they were. Given the events of the post-dinner hours here in the home of the ugly evil empire run by Darth Trump, these articles — which constitute the bulk of today’s offerings —  will be collected and put into a pdf file near the bottom labeled before the attack, there be to be read at your leisure, they being intensely moot as of this hour. The rest of Occurrences will appear as normal, including the news of the cruise missile attack and any aftermath that will have occurred before I put this edition (and me) to bed.

In our world, truth, the alternative press, normalcy, and humanity are all under attack. I’m not sure what can be done or how much time we/I will have to do it but, dear readers, I invite your serious suggestions as to how the three blogs that sit under the umbrella of BoyDownTheLane can better be put to work.  Use the contact page; anything printed there will show up in my e-mail box.  “Continue to give what you can until there is nothing left to give.”]

US launches missile strike against Syria in response to gas attack

The U.S. launched a missile strike against Syria Thursday night in response to a chemical weapons attack carried out by forces loyal to Syrian leader Bashar Assad, according to multiple media reports.

On President Trump’s orders, warships launched more than 50 Tomahawk cruise missiles against a single target, believed to be an airfield near the city of Homs where the gas attack originated.

Hillary Clinton Says Russia Used Hacking ‘to Great Effect’ in Her Defeat

New York Times

Hillary Clinton, a former secretary of state, at a women’s conference on Thursday in New York. Mrs. Clinton called for an independent investigation into Russian interference in last year’s presidential election.


Wilmot Provio for The Conservative Tribune reports, A letter from a top GOP senator to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson revealed that Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was given access to classified documents at the State Department during her campaign, Fox News reports.

Obama Granted Hillary Access to Highly Classified Material While She Was Running for President

The staff apparently retained access even after Clinton announced her run for president in April 2015, according to Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa. The access was ostensibly granted to facilitate work on Clinton’s memoir, but Grassley said he was only able to verify it after the Obama administration left the White House.

Bombshell: How far did Obama spying go?

The Sharyl Attkisson case.

by Jon Rappoport

April 6, 2017

During the transition between election and inauguration, Trump associates have phone conversations with foreign leaders. Those conversations are recorded by US intelligence agencies and turned into secret intelligence reports…

Former Obama National Security Advisor, Susan Rice, is accused of “unmasking” the names of Trump team members contained in those US intelligence reports and illegally leaking their names to the press. Bloomberg reports: “One U.S. official familiar with the reports said they contained valuable political information on the Trump transition such as whom the Trump team was meeting, the views of Trump associates on foreign policy matters and plans for the incoming administration.”

In other words, US intelligence agencies, under Obama, were spying on Trump associates—and Rice obtained the names of those associates, which are supposed to be kept confidential.

Leaking the names to the press, in the current political atmosphere, would result in the impression that Trump associates were having improper conversations with foreign leaders, or even “colluding” with them. Lots of innuendo here.

The Susan Rice spying scandal points to what? More. Other Americans the Obama team spied on. Other Americans who were opposed to the Obama agenda. Other Americans who were critical of the Obama administration. Other Americans who were exposing the Obama administration.

For example, former CBS star investigative reporter, Sharyl Attkisson—who has sued members of the Obama team and several federal agencies. That lawsuit has just been referred to another venue by the judge in the case. He could have dismissed the suit, but he didn’t. He wants it to proceed. He wants Attkisson to have her day in court.

You might remember Attkisson was uncovering highly embarrassing details about the gun-walking operation, Fast & Furious, and the attack on the US diplomatic mission in Benghazi. She was making the Obama administration extremely uncomfortable.

But let me quote Judge Emet Sullivan’s recent order transferring Attkisson’s suit:

“In 2011——at the same time that Ms. Attkisson was conducting investigations and issuing certain of her high-profile news reports——the Attkissons ‘began to notice anomalies in numerous electronic devices at their home in Virginia.’ These anomalies included Ms. Attkisson’s work-issued laptop computer and a family desktop computer ‘turning on and off at night without input from anyone in the household,’ ‘the house alarm chirping daily at different times,’ and ‘television problems, including interference.’ All of these electronic devices used ‘the Verizon FiOS line installed in [the Attkissons’] home,’ but Verizon was unable to stanch the anomalous activity despite multiple attempts. In January 2012, the Attkissons’ residential internet service ‘began constantly dropping off’.”

“In February 2012, ‘sophisticated surveillance spyware’ was installed on Ms. Attkisson’s work-issued laptop computer. A later forensic computer analysis revealed that Ms. Attkisson’s laptop and the family’s desktop computer had been the ‘targets of unauthorized surveillance efforts.’ That same forensic analysis revealed that Ms. Attkisson’s mobile phone was also targeted for surveillance when it was connected to the family’s desktop computer. The infiltration of that computer and the extraction of information from it was ‘executed via an IP address owned, controlled, and operated by the United States Postal service.’ Additionally, based on the sophisticated nature of the software used to carry out the infiltration and software fingerprints indicating the use of the federal government’s proprietary software, the infiltration and surveillance appeared to be perpetrated by persons in the federal government.”

“An independent forensic computer analyst hired by CBS subsequently reported finding evidence on both Ms. Attkisson’s work-issued laptop computer and her family’s desktop computer of ‘a coordinated, highly-skilled series of actions and attacks directed at the operation of the computers.’ Computer forensic analysis also indicated that remote actions were taken in December 2012 to remove the evidence of the electronic infiltration and surveillance from Ms. Attkisson’s computers and other home electronic equipment.”

“As Ms. Attkisson’s investigations and reporting continued, in October 2012 the Attkissons noticed ‘an escalation of electronic problems at their personal residence, including interference in home and mobile phone lines, computer interference, and television interference.’ In November of that year, Ms. Attkisson’s mobile phones ‘experienced regular interruptions and interference, making telephone communications unreliable, and, at times, virtually impossible’.”

“Additionally, in December 2012, a person with government intelligence experience conducted an inspection of the exterior of the Attkissons’ Virginia home. That investigator discovered an extra Verizon FiOS fiber optics line. Soon thereafter, after a Verizon technician was instructed by Ms. Attkisson to leave the extra cable at the home, the cable disappeared, and the Attkissons were unable to determine what happened to it. In March 2013, the Attkissons’ desktop computer malfunctioned, and in September of that year, while Ms. Attkisson was working on a story at her home, she observed that her personal laptop computer was remotely accessed and controlled, resulting in data being deleted from it. On April 3, 2013, Ms. Attkisson filed a complaint with the Inspector General of the Department of Justice. The Inspector General’s investigation was limited to an analysis of the compromised desktop computer, and the partially-released report that emerged from that investigation reported ‘no evidence of intrusion,’ although it did note ‘a great deal of advanced mode computer activity not attributable to Ms. Attkisson or anybody in her household’.”

“The Attkissons allege that the ‘cyber-attacks’ they ‘suffered in [their] home’ were perpetrated by ‘personnel working on behalf of the United States.’ Accordingly, they have asserted various claims against the United States and against former Attorney General Eric Holder, former Postmaster General Patrick Donahoe, and unknown agents of the Department of Justice, the United States Postal Service, and the United States, all in their individual capacities. Those claims include claims against the United States under the FTCA and claims against the individual federal officers for violations of constitutional rights under Bivens v. Six Unknown Named Agents of Fed. Bureau of Narcotics, 403 U.S. 388 (1971)…”

Spying, surveillance, harassment, interference, attempts at intimidation.

Are you noticing any significant mainstream news coverage of this case? Of course not.

Ordinarily, mainstream reporters protect their own colleagues, but here there is silence.

Let’s call it what it is: PARTISAN POLITICAL SILENCE.

The silence is based on a principle they don’t teach at journalism schools:

“We omit the news that contradicts our agenda. Our agenda IS the news.”

Memo to the new Attorney General, Jeff Sessions: You could launch your own investigation into the Attkisson case. Bring it front and center. Uncover all the nasty details. Expose the perpetrators.




“Army Green” by Stewart Brand 

from Rocky

“… America is finally becoming alarmed about the decay of its engineered infrastructure – highways, water systems, communications systems, and even the education system. In the same way, the whole world is worried about the natural infrastructure – soils, aquifers, fishable waters, forests, biodiversity, and even the atmosphere. The natural systems are priceless in value and nearly impossible to replace, but they’re cheap to maintain. All you have to do is defend them.

The natural and engineered infrastructures together constitute the world’s economic infrastructure –

the ecostructure.  Suppose our military took on the long-term role of protecting the global ecostructure….”

After a three-year investigation, the story first broke in November, 2013 with the accusation that Director of Naval Intelligence Vice Admiral Ted “Twig” Branch and four other naval officers accepted bribes of cash, prostitutes, and expensive trips in exchange for steering US Navy contracts for port services to a company named Glen Defense Marine Asia (“GDMA”).

Resurrecting the Unholy Trinity 

Torture, Rendition, and Indefinite Detention Under Trump

By Rebecca Gordon

When George W. Bush and Dick Cheney launched their forever wars — under the banner of a “Global War on Terror” — they unleashed an unholy trinity of tactics. Torture, rendition, and indefinite detention became the order of the day. After a partial suspension of these policies in the Obama years, they now appear poised for resurrection.
