The first question comes from Steve:
I enjoy your blog. I check it out almost everyday. I was wondering what are your vibes on the situation in Mexico? My own feelings are that we should keep a close eye on this. I feel the violence in Mexico is more of a threat to the average American’s personal safety than Iraq or Afganistan. My own intution says we will be asked by the Mexican government for police and/or military support, before this is over. What do you think? Thank you for your time and insight.
Hi Grace. Sadly, I think you’re right. It appears Mexico is in the middle of a civil drug war and there are so many ways this will impact our safety. Having a bunch of sociopaths running around killing people, it’s not hard to imagine the drug traffickers doing business with terrorists for the right price. If they can move drugs and people across boarders, then why not dirty bombs or the unthinkable? This is truly horrifying and so under reported. I knew there were problems in Mexico, and they were getting worse, but once you posted this I wanted to understand what you were referring to, and found that the violence is getting so out of control it rivals the statistics of a civil war. Almost 5,000 people have been horribly murdered this year so far.
In terms of a reading I’m trying to get a handle on how to project forward and what to focus on. My intuition is telling me that if this does not get under control in the next couple of years we’ll see another major attack.
I’m going to meditate on this and try to coax some dreams about this forward and post them later, but for now I asked the tarot:
Will there be another terrorist attack on the US by way of Mexico?
The answer: Yes.
But it looks like there is a very high likelihood at this time, that the attack would not be as effective as our enemies would want and it will be foiled. Our intelligence will catch it before it can do the kind of damage the enemy wishes to do.
I’m going to really put feelers out and scope this question out in greater detail. I’ve had several odd dreams over the past few years that make me wonder if they are in partial reference to a future event of this type. I’ll let you know what I figure out.
I had a strong inner voice telling me Chicago would be where the target strike would be in the next few years, but again I don’t feel it will be entirely successful by the terrorists’ standards. I checked the chart of Chicago and it looked like in 2010 there could be at the very least an attempt. Hopefully, it will be averted.
I’m going to try to get more information about this. You are onto something. I feel it’s not in the immediate future, but perhaps in the next few years. Thanks for your insight!
Hi Denise: I know that Hillary Clinton, when asked what role she would have in the Obama Administration, has said that she would like to remain a Senator. I really believe that Obama has big plans for her. She’s a very intelligent woman and I greatly admire her. 1) What role will Hillary have in an Obama Administration? 2) Will Hillary ever be President? She is an amazing lady and would be a great President. Thanks!
I know Hillary will be president. The timing was wrong for her this go round. If she would have run in 2004 she would have won. But she will win the next round. I have always been a big fan of hers, but I think she made some mistakes in her campaign that cost her the nomination this time around. Hopefully, she will learn from them, and be herself next time instead of listening to the “experts” telling her how to come across, or to do or say.
She has tremendous depth and intelligence, but I think she tried too hard to work against the implicit sexism. And this is where she went wrong. There will always be people who won’t vote for a woman just like there will be people who won’t vote for Obama because he’s of African descent. But luckily, these people are not the majority and over time there will be even less of them. So, in my humble opinion if Hillary is herself, doesn’t try to over think things and relaxes, she’ll win the next go round by a landslide.
People did not get to see what she has to offer and who she really is. She was too worried about the people she wanted to convert instead of worrying about the people who were on her side. Next time I don’t think she’ll make that mistake.
I don’t have the feeling Obama is going to use Hillary as anything more than an adviser on some issues. But I do feel her prominence in the Democratic party will continue to grow and in a strange way, because she didn’t get the nomination this time, she will be a better candidate next time, and a better president!
Best wishes to all!
Later I will answer these questions and new posts.
Now here are my questions:
1. Since the polls recently are showing Barack Obama in the lead in some of the battleground states…will people really go out there to vote for him?
2. Do you see more of a shift in those battleground states toward Barack Obama in the upcoming weeks?
3. Do you still see Barack Obama as president?
