There are riots across the United States, with large crowds from coast to coast protesting the murder of George Floyd during an arrest. Whitley Strieber reports that there is extensive rioting in his town of Santa Monica, California. He states that he is currently safe, but that there is rioting and looting in the area and there are some fires nearby, mostly burning vehicles. He says, “I got as close as I thought was prudent before the curfew sent me home, but I was extremely careful as the police are not able to distinguish who is a rioter and who isn’t. Most of the people I saw were coming up from South LA. It is not a Santa Monica crowd. They have come here for the specific purpose of carrying out their protest in a quiet little community like this one.”

He has posted a journal entry with his thoughts about why this has happened and what we should do at this point. He adds, “the United States is in many ways, with COVID-19 and now this, in a worse situation than it was during World War II or during the Vietnam riots.” His journal entry speculates about the reasons that the murder of George Floyd appears to have been such a deliberate and intentional act, and so carefully videotaped. He says, “it seems to me that it may have been intended to incite riot at least by the officer who killed Mr. Floyd, if not the whole group of them.” To read his journal, click here.

  1. To Whit and everyone whose community is being affected by the current violence, keep safe, and remember that the Unknown Country Community stands with you.

  2. Yes, i agree to the fact this looks “kookie pants.”
    Ok, if the guy is trained police, he KNEW what was happening. If the officers (3 or 4) around him saw what was going on, YES, they KNEW.
    Whitley pointed it out.. and I too noticed it; WHY was the guy’s hand in his pocket? What was SO important in there he had to hold to?
    MJ12 mind control type… focus item? …short range transmitter?
    After 60 seconds, the other officers should have pulled him off. Now, im interested, but no one will know.
    Yes, I still adhere to Shakespeare:
    There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

    In LMH’s last vid about Antarctica, 1 of the witnesses spoke of a “hostile” race… smarter than us, stronger & physically similar. (Grain of salt time) If so, wouldnt it be easy to set all that up after SO many are unemployed, even more trapped indoors … just building up frustration. Heres an outlet.
    Yes, theres been decades of complaints about police. Yes, these should be addressed. But this was SO in your face kinda thing….
    Kookie pants.

    1. Hand in pocket is to hide that he is applying force to his leg to increase pressure on GF’s neck

  3. It feels like humanity is living in intrinsic evil times. A BATTLE THAT HAS BEEN RAGING BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS. How long must we endure this as citizens of planet earth?   

    Just a few quotes from, “Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds.” 

    “Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one.”

    “Of  all the offspring of Time, Error is the most ancient, and is so old and familiar an acquaintance, that Truth, when discovered, comes upon most of us like an intruder, and meets the intruder’s welcome.”

  4. The Great Turning, the birth of the New Earth, the decline and fall of the American Empire, the Ascension reaches a new intensity. Will the center hold? How many 500 year floods year after year or fires or a virus, real or not, that unites the world as one humanity in fear and evolving compassion for all. “This is the front desk you requested a wake-up call.”

    The Second Coming

    TURNING and turning in the widening gyre
    The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
    Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
    Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
    The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
    The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
    The best lack all conviction, while the worst
    Are full of passionate intensity.

    Surely some revelation is at hand;
    Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
    The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
    When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
    Troubles my sight: somewhere in sands of the desert
    A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
    A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
    Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
    Reel shadows of the indignant desert birds.
    The darkness drops again; but now I know
    That twenty centuries of stony sleep
    Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
    And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
    Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

    W. B. Yeats, 1919

  5. These are not riots. They are rebellions. Riot is the language of the unheard. ~Dr MLKing
