1984’s George Orwell; Ernest Hemingway (For Whom The Bell Tolls)Salvador Dali, Antonio Gaudi, myself – St.Clair – we lived & breathed most colorful ‘HOTEL CATALONIA’ – long enough to know when we see the Spirits of Trauma re-incarnate. We have seen this many times, thousands of years, it comes around. Freedom Democracy Uprising Tyranny etc. it’s a cycle. You can check in (at leisure) anytime, but you WILL NEVER leave the prison planet.

Spain & Catalonia – most of planet – is a story of recurring Spirits of Trauma.

When the farmers mobilize two thousand tractors – like tanks in cities –
You know it is getting serious in the revolution lands of intellectuals.

* Catalonia won the info war – with black/white lies — but lost its reality. Madrid’s government has no true narrative of its own with which to counter the deceptive / false / fake account of the radical secessionist anarchists – allied with a small timer bourgeoisie first ever time — who took Barcelona’s / (Catalonia’s) Government hostage 2 years ago and led it down a path over the abyss.

* What is going on in 2017 in Catalonia and in Madrid is a scandalous degradation of what “Democracy” and “Rule of Law” respectively are both all about. Both players on both sides over-played their hands. Many take sides, for or against this or that.. and this presentation’s purpose is to show why choosing NO Side is intelligent. MANY Catalans choose this 3rd way. First some facts.

* What we experience in Catalonia, (those few 8 -eight- million of us fortunate enough to witness it) is an ice breaker type societal innovative ‘Transformation Project’ of all of society in a VERY LONG TERM.

CAT=LAND — As a fractal of mankind? A multiple deep puzzle society. This is metamorphosis of centralized STRUCTURES to regional autonomy FOLKS – YET in a slow motion – united fashion. Birth pangs. Experiments. Many small ones = together stronger – after separating.

* Catalonia, (Barcelona) as I witness & experience it, is high energy, high intelligence, high culture, OPEN port, high Art, creative, innovative, generally very peaceful / elevated sense of civics and highly educated cultivated folks. And yet extremely dis- / or ill informed. They do not have a clue how the world really works, but I teach them anyway.

The Mayor of BCN is the most ill or dis-informed person. I can just yawn.

Spain lives a high ancient culture also — in Madrid we know many highly intelligent friends in favor of peace between Catalonia & Madrid, while deep South — other areas of Spain’s provinces are more akin to red necks (illiterates) – in terms of living in the Franco past — (they actually hate Catalans, while they depend on them), pretty insane… so generally I can state that Catalonia has the advanced brains. However also plays victim / chip on shoulder ‘psychosis.’ Why is that?

Deep Puzzle in History Sociology.

Barcelona Olympics 1992 – [Kosovo / EU looks other way] – now soon 2020 is a HIGH TECH Venetian type city state, global, cosmopolitan, open for business. It is 5 of 8 million Catalan inhabitants. (Not all are born in Catalonia.) They might be born in Andalusia or in Aragon. Or in Russia, China, France, Germany.. USA, or in Switzerland.

To put a face on it all — Pootch Da Mon only 1 face.

Esoteric HIGH FORCES oppose each other – like Saruman & Gandalf, assisted by some.

It doesn’t have time or energy / resources to fight with “central” Madrid (which is its own city state) over trivial concepts like “democracy” ok. They fight over control of flow of funds, as usual. Catalonia is very money hungry abd can not afford to miss the train of Mediterranean economics. Madrid has no choice but to negotiate – or new elections loom in both CatLand and in Spain.

The perception that Spain is ripping off Catalonia? Is unclear. Not really true – yet too complex. Everybody rips everybody off is more true. There is corruption everywhere through all parties. left right and all spectrum and from highest to lowest level. Corruption is universal.

Due to the fact I have close friends on all sides of this story, [many more than two sides], I took on a stance early on, which Barcelona mayor mirrors now. We told her that we all need BCN city to function, and I dont care if a communist or other type mayor manages the airport of BCN. We just need a city state manager aloof of any ideology

is that cool?

– ONE is neither for independence (as suggested by this present Catalan ‘government’) – nor does one condone Madrid’s behavior. In fact some people aware enough feel that Central Madrid has provoked this crisis. And the anarchists played into it, ok. We know that at least half (or more) of Catalonia is not for independence, actually, and so..

Brussels, we have a problem in South West Europe!

I report that the manner in which this is done is incorrect. People have to be able to vote, that is an obvious self evident fundamental truth. So, now a neutral arbiter is needed with constructive suggestions.

– To put in context world readers can understand… Imagine New York state government announces unilateral secession of USA, while New York City Mayor says, “hey guys wait a second!?” Or let’s say Texas Governor says “I announce secession because half of Texans want this.” And the Houston Mayor says, ” yes but what about our folks here?”

– As someone who lived in LA, NY, and in Miami, and in West Palm Beach, FL — I can tell you that Barcelona * Catalonia is way more advanced in 9 of ten high level life quality criteria sectors. Catalonia has it made in the shade on a scale of 1-10 in ALL terms and criteria, except they need shrinks.

* Debunking Catalan (esoteric & exoteric) myths & lies

(The Catalans were reeled into a special psy op that took 7 years)

Catalonia’s pro-independence movement bases its propaganda claims on a set of emphatic / oft-repeated assertions, ranging from historical beliefs (that there was, for example, a war of secession (succession?) in 1714 that resulted in a subjugated Catalonia) to economic maxims (Spain is robbing us, we’d be richer outside Spain).

Europe fought over the Spanish Crown. They went Gaga over it, fought world wars over Spain, then lator over Russia, hundred/s of years… while Catalonia was a side show (of a side show) then, ok. Lets stay a side show.

The Eternal = Elven = Eleven Experiment

These assertions are all false. EL PAÍS has analyzed 10 of the myths that are used to support the separatists’ story, and found that not one of them withstands detailed scrutiny.

For instance: it is not true – and European treaties reflect this – that an independent Catalonia would automatically join the European Union. On the contrary, it would have to embark on a long and winding institutional and international journey, with the United Nations as a middle stage. Yannis Varoufakis can tell you how the inner EU steel pact REALLY works! It’s all about control!

Nor is it true that Spanish system of devolved powers to the regions (Estado de las autonomías) has failed. Or that voting is an exercise in democracy in all cases – (dictatorships also organize referendums).

Or that the October 1st 2017 ballot is legal – it is illegal in content, and in the manner it was passed by the Catalan parliament – and in the way it violates referendum standards set by the Council of Europe’s Venice Commission.

It is a non starter. Diagonal. or not. Not so intelligent intel/

It is also untrue that Catalonia can legally secede from Spain by invoking the right to self-determination, as this right is reserved for nations under colonial rule. Nor is the 1978 Constitution hostile to Catalans — 90% plus of them VOTED FOR this 1978 Constitution of their own volition.

— So why is it a bad deal now — in bad times? Not suitable anymore??

–>> DEEP read — Ten points of ten – important study!
Every Catalan propaganda claim countered by rational empiric facts.
But as neutral traveler you cannot help but love the Catalans, ok!

* The Silence of The Majority in Catalonia — and its lengthy absence from the public arena — have created the illusion that “a majority of Catalans want independence.”

Yet survey after survey contradicts this FAKE MEME view.

[This illusion is shared by a 35-40% secessionist minority + millions of dis-informed & naive onlookers outside Catalonia / Spain – driven by a small crew of about 300-600 systemic anarchist – some of who have high level government positions now. Clever types. Half of Catalans are Spanish anyway, also. The CUP/ERC (Trotsky style) coup d’Etat = driven from outside of Spain – by NGOs that did similar things as Arab Springs Ukraine Venezuela Syria Libya Afghanistan Yemen, etc.]

* 400 law professors in Spain (50 Catalans)
A strong legal opinion on Catalonia

“The EU must help the Spanish and Catalan governments find a negotiated solution to the referendum row”

Ada Colau, communist minded Mayor of Barcelona asks EU Brussels to engage this and this is correct action.

A neutral outside arbiter / referee / negotiation team of international lawyers specialized in secession laws needs to come in and mediate this matter now. She speaks as Mayor of about half of Catalonia’s population, the city state of Barcelona & surroundings equal 5 of 8 million people.

Her opinion (official appeal) piece in Guardian UK in English – as Mayor of such a huge population she is entitled to speak internationally on behalf of some of them. She is not for independence, she just wants to get the matter settled intelligently and legally.

[Imagine world’s top companies of present & future set up shop in Barcelona. Amazon, Apple, Google, IBM, UPS, IT industry, advanced medicine, star ups, Tech, Science, new port projects and gas pipe lines. . MANY Pipe lines, deals with China RUSSiA & Iran & Israel — and Japan, etc.

The top business leaders who employ half of Barcelona are frightened by the prospect of a banana republic. Israel’s & Japan’s elites had planned for CatLand to be their Escape hatch “radiant zone” safe place.. ok.]

Amid relentless calls for “independence”–
Catalonians for a unified Spain struggle to be heard

I am a neutral objective observer, seeing hearing – talked to by – all sides, more than two only… there are sides within the sides within the sides. Secessionists who wish this operation to be legal and thus vote NO, as well as people who are opposed to independence, but MORE so opposed to Madrid. Plus those in the middle one third ground who knows that the 2 other sides are stupid or wrong.

[[Piece of advice to Madrid which Trump might not have time to transmit…

— Don’t Think for a minute that you can delegate governing to court lawyers / judges – that’s like cheap / cheating / avoiding responsibility of true Leadership. (Lawyers can only say what is Law.) But you decide what Action you take and YOU take responsibility for it, do not hide behind some court!!. Suggest you NEGOTiATE or resign! ]]

Miguel Aguilar, a Barcelona-based publisher originally from Madrid, says there are several reasons why those who question Catalan independence keep quiet.

“We are not as cohesive a group as [the secessionists], nor is the fight against independence the sole driver of our lives. We’re talking about a silent majority against an outspoken minority that is very well organized and very well subsidized. We don’t have a single answer to solve the problem, but they do: independence.”

Aguilar adds further nuance to the debate: “This is not a war between Madrid and Barcelona or between Catalans and Spaniards; it’s between Catalans themselves. Half of Catalonia is bending the other half to its will; this is also a revolt of the rich against the poor, as Javier Cercas has noted.”

Álex Ramos, a medic who is also a member of the Socialist Party as well as a grass-roots activist with Sociedad Civil Catalana, which opposes independence and supports better relations with Madrid, warns that this silence has been crafted through years of slow “hammer-and-chisel” action.

PABLO IGLESISAS (leader of Podemos) and I propose something different —
Multi-nation Spain = Where everyone has its space in peace & cooperation.


Why would Catalonia have to be never ending failed hobbit state that pays taxes to keep FOUR fifths of Spain alive, Andalusia & co? OK something not right there. ?‘ ((Why do Bavarians have to pay for East Germans?))

“Anachronistic, absurd & illegal.”
Nobel Prize winner Mario Vargas Llosa states that the Catalan referendum is “an anachronism that has nothing to do with the reality of our time, and which is not for the construction of nationalities, but on the contrary, for the fading of nationalities within large common organizations like Europe,” which he considers “one of the great democratic creations.”

FACT — Silent majority in Catalonia is OPPOSED to Independence

Fact. 80% of people in Cat Land wish a LEGAL binding referendum, either way.
Fact. 65% of people reject this current circus act driven by a radical Junta.

EL PAÍS (main stream media Spain) asked a group of experts the following question: ‘why doesn’t the majority speak out?‘ This is the response of architect Fermín Vázquez, publisher Miguel Aguilar, doctor and activist Álex Ramos, writer Milena Busquets, communications consultant David Espinós and a Barcelona judge, who spoke on the basis of anonymity.

We all want to be tolerant. But you don’t expect to be treated so contemptuously,” says Fermín Vázquez. “Ultimately, it is frightening to face up to so many people who are so emotional about the issue. Flag-waving crowds are always scary.

The Catalan government has no power
to organize a secessionist referendum
and it knows this.

Watch two times ten min.
to understand new situation now..

Asking for – promoting – dialogue that we are talking about will, in short, require time, a minimum set of clear and shared goals, a commitment to the common good by all regional leaders, and the broadness of vision to address changes ranging from constitutional reform to the regional financing system, as Economy Minister Luis de Guindos suggested. Surely, a true dialogue to reform our structures will also require new conversation partners: it is hard to imagine that those who have openly violated the law, or that those who have in the past blocked any chance at change, could now lead such a process. This new dialogue cannot take place yet, nor can it begin until the rule of law is unequivocally restored in Catalonia. What can begin, however, is the political initiative to create a foundation for such dialogue. It is important to say it. It is even more important to do it.

Nothing can move forward until ALL the old actors of ALL sides leave the theatrical scene. Hamlet goes, King Lear dies, MacBeth is Toast = all leave. To build a 17 multi nation state in Spain & settle the matter for the better. Federation style. Will take time.

Never mind all the many “secret plans” the many players talk about…

Observed effects in CatLand

1. The Mossos police is no longer trusted by the Judges in BCN. Very bad.
2. The schools indoctrinate kids aged 4 til 22 in university, to be with ‘it’
3. The economy experts agree in that it has “left the house” with mass exodus.
4. The deep division through Catalan society has now been shown in true reality.
5. The fact that many very many were lured into this and snookered.
6. The fact that now the Junta around Puigdemont is in an inner war.
7. Potential social stability and safety issues, etc. and more he did not say.
8. Catalan media propaganda TV3 etc. Not a word is true. Read El Pais ‘ LaVanguardia
9. Psychological emotional breakdown of people at all levels

The ever so clever Julian Assange (who never lived one day in Catalonia) said there will be civil war in Catalonia. He is the oracle. Notwithstanding the fact that I personally asked Trump buddy to pardon Assange buddy, and his cat buddy, I am the source in CatLand. I say there is already ‘civil war’ in Catalonia, since I am witnessing it, of a deadly / silent Stalinist kind, it is how it starts. Name any case study! It always looks like a great idea until some dark ones take over from the naive ones… from a sinking empire..

((See Histories comparable to when one piece of an incredibly powerful empire wishes to split.. where a majority of quiet people are scared to speak any word for fear to be targeted by a few (outside sponsored) radical extremists who have taken a legitimate movement, a failed parliament, and now a whole puppet government – as hostage and dictate in autocratic manner what goes to a majority who wishes to stay within the rule of Law.))

Isn’t that something? = Autocracy passing for Democracy.

THE Manifesto

With the Spanish / Catalan governments at loggerheads over Catalonia’s desire to be independent, it seems some citizens of the small regions have grown weary of the bickering. A manifesto, entitled ‘The Other Catalans’ has gone viral — at FB — with their message of tolerance & peace. The Catalan society is discreet & hospitable.

Being widely shared on Facebook / WhatsApp:

“We are the other Catalans.

— “Those who do not go to demonstrations and never place flags on the balcony.

— “We are calm, tolerant, hardworking, peaceful, discreet and friends of our friends. We want to have health, money, love and work, like everyone else.

— “We believe in family and in the personal effort and not in donations and public money to get things.

— “We love peace and freedom, we detest corruption, violence, abuse of power, manipulation and lies.”

It goes to say how they “respect Spain”, despite the war of words between politicians Spanish Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy and Catalan leader Carles Puigdemont.

— “We are quite fed up with the “procès” (Catalan independence process) and politicians in general with so many lies. We vote for the least bad.

— “We hate those who promote phobias between territories, whatever their colour is, from here or elsewhere, just to win a few votes, keep their job and keep themselves warm.

— “We do not believe that independence is the solution to all our problems: we are not so naïve. Confrontation politics and its leaders are part of the problem.

— “I believe many think like that, but we are not seen or heard: “we are THE OTHERS” and although they know we are here, they ignore us for not thinking like them.

— “We love Catalonia, we love Spain, we want to remain European.”

— For this particular NOBEL Prize winner, Catalonia’s referendum is anachronistic, illegal, and absurd, all three of it. see Mario Vargas Llosa explaining how he has seen it all.

Best way forward — new general elections set on same day – BOTH in Spain / in Catalonia — start the negotiations for a new constitution.

for or against it? Catalan Mayors who pledged to hold referendum under investigation – Mayors risk their arrests now.

— 3 — Where are the famous transparent six thousand BALLOT BOXES in Catalonia? Someone flying them in at BCN in strike, or Crypto Revolt?

— 4 — Update. Spain’s Constitutional Court puts Catalan Referendum on Ice

— 5 — Most Catalans view this absurd farce of Referendum iNVALiD & ILLEGAL (both)
[61% of YOUNG adult voters – under age 35 – are against this operation.]

— 6 — Astrologically, the 2017 impasse is super steep = Insurmountable.
Jupiter in Libra vs. Uranus in Aries is a last replay of Trump vs Clinton. Same story more evolved now with Mars Venus opposite Neptune..

Most people will learn soon that Majorities do NOT define democracies, because a democracy is defined – rather – by its ability not to break the Rule of Law, which is beyond what a “democracy” is about.

Why were ten million ballots printed
— when only 5,5 million people can vote? This is an ‘aesthetic question’ only ok.. Is that strange or not? What were the 4 more extra million ballots for?? Aware minds ask, and you may think along side…:

“Why ten million printed ballots for 5.5 million registered voters?”

– photo finish of a divided society –

The above OFFiCiAL tweet takes the cake in matters of “Rule of Law” — Never seen any thing more absurd in all my life than these 24 hours, and I am a seasoned super intel guy — (who witnessed West Palm Beach 2000 after predicting it 1 year ahead) — I cannot believe they were allowed to pull off such an insane anti-constitutional stunt, unless prosecutors needed to follow the trail of money to prove sedition. Should have been stopped then & there.

[This is moment when Ambassador Vernon Walters reincarnation would look Nixon man, or me in the face and eye me down, and say, Michael you cant pull this crap in a democracy. Majorities are fabricated.”]

Time for a lecture on valid inter-national constitutional Law/s — Saturn in SAGiTTARiUS’ last ‘galactic center’ (or most evolved) degrees, while well aligned to Jupiter & Uranus both. Majorities, democracies, rule of law, or rule of the mob? Takes time to see clear.

Brave Catalan people speak freely…


“It is a revealing fact that a lot of people in Catalonia don’t want to talk about it, out of weariness or out of fear of getting harassed by either side, or even by both at the same time. This is a small world where everybody knows each other. For instance, everyone knows where any given Catalan public figure – whether a politician, a writer, an athlete or a TV anchor – stands on the issue of independence. And everyone knows that the moment they open their mouth, they will be categorized into one of the two opposing sides.”

Josep Cuní, 1 of most popular journalist TV personalities in Catalonia, admits that until now he had kept his distance, but that he is currently feeling annoyed.

“I am very critical about the manner in which this whole thing has been handled. Not so much because of the illegality, but because of the aesthetic aspects,” he says.

This might sound very snobbish and selective, but I think that respect and delicacy of manner is an essential part of Catalanism: a job well done has no borders, while a botched job has no future. Like [20th-century Catalan writer Josep] Pla used to say, ‘You go ahead and do whatever you like in life, but above all, never make a fool of yourself.’

That sense of ridicule is a big deal in Catalonia, where grandmothers routinely say, ‘Whatever you do, don’t draw attention to yourself’.”

A good connected day in the neighborhoods for inspired street parties!

Misguided action – Aesthetics gone awry – peace & love & mind control.

Catalonia always chooses the WORST astro dates to do something of importance. Lately since 2011 all elections & referendum operations were very unfortunately scheduled by IGNORANT folks – either into eclipses or Mercury retro phases – where nothing would ever work long term, and this last operation for 1st October is no different – 1 more nail in the coffin of all of it = Catalonia, Spain, EU, the Western Civilization, etc.. (watch 2 ten min videos above.)

Neptune in Pisces

Keep breathing. Purple Haziness.

The Hurricanes storms floods are part of NEPTUNE’s 2026 decade long rulership.

You know.
What defines a democracy is not the existence of (rigged) “majorities” – all political systems & regimes have them – but rather the fact that even the best ‘democracies’ cannot disobey the iron rule of law with impunity.

There is a difference between ‘rule of law’ – and rule of mob by / mobsters / autocrats. North Korea / Ukraine / Uganda / Yemen / Venezuela etc. Catalonia could easily fall-off that cliff because it is low hanging fruits.

Joke of the day went viral in CatLand
the secessionists have a super secret 5 point plan

Oct 1st. Referendum with YES vote pre-planned
Oct 2nd Declaration of independence unilateral
Oct 3rd invasion annexion of Andorra by Catalonia’s Mossos police
Oct 4th Foundation of Republic of CatLand-Andorra – sessecion of Spain
Oct 5th Catalonia is now a EU tax haven and Andorra has a beach,
Oh and Spain is rid of 2 problems in one, everyone happy now.

Yes, that’s the secret real plan, everyone is laughing

[Andorra is a tax haven town with principality status / co-managed by a regent & France’s President, in some mountainous terrain up in the Pyrenees and former Catalan President Pujol & Godfather of Catalan family hid half a billion Euro there, that’s what I mean by “corruption”, so the joke is REAL. Pujol was never hot on independence in the good days, he just took 3% of the GDP he managed.]

Fall Equinox 2017: — Deja-vu

“The anarchists were still in virtual control of Catalonia and the revolution was still in full swing … It was the first time that I had ever been in a town where the working class was in the saddle … every wall was scrawled with the hammer and sickle … every shop and café had an inscription saying that it had been collectivized.

They all think themselves super smart.
