(N.B. In my blog titled 'America's Founders: Giants in the Earth', I mentioned that I would give 'the Ladies' their due. Herewith.)
After praising 'Famous Men' founders of the American Republic - for whom I couldn't feel stronger affection had I been there myself, amongst them and in their august company; like souls sent to Earth together for a great purpose - I feel it only fair to devote some words of appreciation about, and to, The Ladies: females who have made an impressive contribution to life, particularly, in this context, in America. And at this point, just to mention, and clarify, that it is not that souls themselves are male or female; that distinction only exists in a realm of duality. But as incarnate souls, in a 3D classroom, we can make major contributions to life from either polarity.
And a further word on that score, first.
I happen to be a believer in the importance of the traditional roles for males and females; how the males - because of their greater bodily strength - are the hunters/gatherers, and the females are the 'homemakers', with their particular importance in and to the raising of the children of the tribe - including the males, until they come of age, and are then initiated by their fathers into the fraternal ways of the male world, of responsibility. So I have a hard time with the 'modern' breakdown of the traditional roles, where the females - by and large - have decided to go out and compete in the 'male' world on equal terms with the males; and needing the support of the state in order to do so, in terms of child rearing, and breaking down the 'fraternal' barriers in the patriarchal society in which they have begun to feel oppressed. Having said that - and thereby 'named' my natural predisposition to look at these sorts of matters - I very much honor the contributions that females have made to society beyond their 'normal' role. So, having clarified that, let me begin, to do just that.
Besides females in history that I could mention in this sort of 'praise to' rundown - like Madame Curie, and Florence Nightingale, and Abigail Adams ("the invincible Abigail," Catherine Drinker Bowen - herself an imposing figure in this regard - called her; the first Dear Abby - meant only with smile; not a put-down) - there have been some key players in our modern American history who have been females. And I would like to start with a group, whom I like to think of as The Fabulous Four:
* Dr. Virginia Livingston Wheeler & Co.1
I read Dr Livingston-Wheeler's book 'Cancer - A New Breakthrough' back in the mid-'60s, and was most impressed, particularly with how this pod of female researchers continued to trace down an elusive microbe, through various stages of its life (thus the 'pleomorphic thesis of cancer') with such attention to detail. Wonderful work, ladies.
It is a commentary on the 'dark side' of the patriarchal establishment, who kept the work of these determined and meticulous researchers bottled up so well, that my own mother came down with and died of breast cancer, whom I couldn't help with my information from that book because she had "never heard of it", and put her whole trust and faith in the hands of the medical establishment - the medical-pharmaceutical complex. But that's another story.
And another 'pod' to honor:
* the females who are doing such amazing work 'channeling' spiritual beings, and otherwise working with spiritual development. I think in particular of:
Carla Ruickert (channeling Ra, and The Law of One material); Patricia Cori (channeling The Sirian High Council'; Barbara Marciniak (The Pleiadians); Barbara Hand Clow, Patricia Diane Cota-Robles, Nancy Detweiler- that list goes on.
And another 'collective':
* Sheila Ostrander & Lynn Schroeder, for their 1970 book 'Psychic Discoveries Behind The Iron Curtain'. A real curtain-raiser.
And now for some individuals, just off the top of my head:
* Dr. Judy Wood, for her indefatigable research resulting in her book 'Where Did The Towers Go"'; demonstrating beyond a shadow of a doubt that there were major players behind the 9/11 tragedy. And speaking of that caper:
* Sibel Edmonds - whistleblower on the FBI's covering up of important information that she had to give them, from her 'desk' in the Translations department;
* Coleen Rowley - Special Agent in the FBI, who tried to give Central Hq important information on that matter from her field office in Minneapolis, and was rebuffed;
* Susan Lindauer - who has written a book, 'Extreme Prejudice', detailing her role as a back channel for the CIA to the Iraqi mission at the UN, in the lead-up to 9/11, who was likewise stymied in her job from higher-ups.
Others, in the wake of 9/11, and its so-called War on Terror:
* Gwenyth Todd - Middle East policy adviser to Clinton, recruited by Richard Perle - he of the Neocon pod - to be an adviser in the Bush Jr. administration, becoming geostrategic adviser to the admirals running the 5th Fleet in Bahrain, not 'doing her job' by blowing the whistle on that administration's attempts to start a war with Iran; and
* federal judge Kathleen Forrest, who wouldn't buy the Obama administration's support of the NDAA against a law suit brought against its 'indeterminate detention' policy, thus running counter to both the 5th and 6th Amendment rights of American citizens. The Constitution hanging by a slender thread as it is, because of just such incursions into its protections of the citizenry of this country against tyrants gaining power in Washington D.C. - the District of Criminals.
Well, I could go on; but as you can see, I 'slipped a cog' there, and bought into my outrage towards the very powers that these ladies stood up to, stubbornly, and so well.
Good on you, ladies - all. You have done magnificent service - each in your own ways - to America, and the world.
I salute you. Whether I basically think that you should have stayed at home, and raised the new generations - to keep humanity from running up against just such spoiled-brat tyrants as we have been doing, have had to endure - or not.
As we have seen: you filled a need, where you chose to serve.
And filled it with great honor.
Congratulations. Or, as they say to the men (to be fully equal, here; and deservedly):
1 4 AMAZING WOMEN SCIENTISTS
WHO DISCOVERED THE CAUSE OF CANCER!!
FOUR WOMEN AGAINST CANCER
By Alan Cantwell, M.D.
Back in the 1950s a group of four dedicated women scientists began to work together to uncover the remarkable and unprecedented germ that causes cancer. Rather than being received with enthusiasm, their published cancer research was ignored, overlooked or actively suppressed by the cancer establishment and the powers that be.
The cause of cancer is unknown — or is it? In this highly provocative and controversial book, Alan Cantwell, MD, presents the revolutionary cancer research of physician Virginia Livingston, MD; microbiologist Eleanor Alexander-Jackson; cell cytologist Irene Diller: and world-famous biochemist Florence Seibert — all of whom discovered an easily detectable microbe in cancer—a germ whose existence is still totally denied by the medical establishment. Unlike any infectious agent known to science, the cancer microbe has characteristics of both bacteria and viruses—and produces a remarkable hormone that allows life to continually reproduce and renew itself.
