Colin Powell passed away October 18, 2021

 My Testimony Honoring Colin L. Powell
I struggle with the concept
It's not how a man dies, but how he lives
When their death is untimely and they are so beloved by so many good people - and so lied about by so many evil people who don't care - never cared about us.  
When I found out Colin Powell died on October 18, I searched to verify - and to my great shock it was true. I hoped he would live long enough for more people to realize the truth - what a great commander he was, always expecting the best out of soldiers and anyone else he spoke to - like me.  I was secretary to the Division Artillery Headquarters, paid low wages as a GS-3 clerk with absolutely no assurance that they even cared about my seeking permanent status either there or another office on base.  Instead, I was treated like I should be grateful they tolerate me and was told, "You're a part of the family here" which meant I could only eat my lunch at  m KNOW THE ENEMY!  THEY TOOK OUT I STATED I COULD ONLY HAVE LUNCH AT MY DESK!  THEY ARE MANIPULATING OUR DEVICES!  THEY ARE LIARS, THIEVES, SOCIOPATHS!  MOST ARE MURDERERS!  I JUST EDITED THIS CAREFULLY YESTERDAY!  I HAPPEN TO RECHECK IT TODAY BECAUSE THEY ARE LIKE MAGGOTS THAT YOU HAVE TO KEEP SWATTING AND EXTERMINATING!  11/7/2021 and had to work extra HOURS  and had to work extra jobs first I SAID JUST TO SURVIV E, NOT FIRST TO SURVIVE!  I CANNOT EVEN LINE OUT THE WORD FIRST BECAUSE WHOEVER THE BASTARD IS CONTROLLING MY NOTEBOOK REMOVED THAT FEATURE NOW! 11/7/2021  to survive and had absolutely no chance to travel or anything, 

COLIN POWLL'S FACEBOOK HAS HAD TO BE TAKEN DOWN SEVERAL TIMES BECAUSE OF CROOKED TECHNOCRATS - NOT WANTING ANYONE TO KNOW THE TRUTH FROM MANY OF US WHO LOVE HIM AS A LEADER WHO IS FORTHRIGHT- AND YET HE MAINTAINED THE INTEGRITY OF THIS GOVERNMENT RUN BY SOCIOPATHS!  11/7/2021

Colin Powell said he wanted to talk to me after he got through with meeting with the Colonel.  Instead, he left with a sad face, glanced at me.  I was already very proud to have him converse with me and realized the colonel knew I didn't vote for Bush because I did not want war and the buzz was if he became President, there would be a war because he wanted one - to feed the Military Industrial Complex.  On the other hand, Hon. Colin Powell told me I had a right to my opinion. The one who hired me became the S-3 in charge of NBC, which is nuclear, biological, chemical weapons.  The highest casualty rate of the Kuwait war (Operation Desert Storm) was FRIENDLY FIRE of the Division Artillery.  They bombed themselves due to wrong calibration of the bomber's set target.  
Recently I think this S-3's mother approached me in public and told me her son was an officer at Divarty and is now a General and "he makes a lot of money".  I said, "That's nice', figuring she was planted there to approach me like his father did at a railroad station some time ago.  Yet neither acknowledged who I am 0 WTF - THESE INSERTED O'S AND ZERO'S ARE PROBABLY A NEFARIOUS CODE CREATED BY THE ORGANIZED CRIME THAT RUNS THIS US GOVERNMENT!  AND WE PAY THEM THROUGH AS FEDERAL EMPLOYEES!  11/7/2-21 

as if to allude I'm brain-dead and don't know who they are.  After all, that would excuse why they paid me low wages and why I didn't even get comp time the first year.  I found out that I could have received comp time on my own and prepared my time cards accordingly.  Not once was I offered any correction on prior ones and I was never offered any day off even though I put in at the least one month's worth of comp time that year because they had much processing to do - in order to be activated on post, plus be war-ready for CIA man Bush.  Colin Powell could have made millions a year in the private sector. He was offered CEO jobs by large companies.  He made his choices based on need - and had to confront very nasty people in Washington every day, in hopes that they may even turn around or he could at least head them off at the pass. 
 
September 11 occurred and he obviously realized it was a Secret Society scheme.  Americans mass murdering Americans. He staved-off a Middle East War because he did not approve it.  Yet the malicious and vexatious propaganda about "No WOMD in Iraq" to justify the Gulf War, was thereafter spread by GW Bush, who couldn't have it any other way to have Colin Powell as Secretary of State.  So why was it he would claim failed intelligence AFTER begging him to join his cabinet? And Colin Powell and his wife were almost killed in a plane crash - yet he made sure the pilot who was flying the charter plane was someone he knew was well-qualified.  Despite both engines failing, that pilot succeffully SUCCESSFULLY landed
 with no fatalities and minimal injuries of the passengers. 

Colin Powell was greatly loved by real patriots in this country and his death was untimely. 

It is my opinion that CIA killed him at the will of  sabatoging Joe Biden 

Despite the fact that Colin Powell publically and emphatically 
supported Biden for US President!

Biden obviously poisoned his wife in 1972, as a mafia payoff.  I shared my opinion with Colin Powell.  Certainly as just an average citizen, yet hard worker, It would take some time to determine this, if it could be determined at all.  It may be they exhumed his wife's body - and maybe they replaced her body!  Certainly that would profile him for cover-up.  Nevertheless, only a professional profiler on criminal behavior could ultimately make a good call on this.  Yet, Biden probably framed himself because the crimes of Clintons are the same way - they aren't prosecuted 
because of the corrupion CORRUPTION in Washington, DC using #PayToPlay politics.  
And they get the money from committing crimes! 
Biden was cheating on his wife with Jill Biden. Based on what I learned it is obvious he was willing to make a Satanic Sacrifice of family so mafia would rig elections and even make him President
 like they did for JFK and probably others..  

Hopefully my #SunriseCT posts are not intercepted by Twitter.  Yet Twitter nefariously locks my accounts to keep the truth from being exposed.  We all have a right to our opinions.  I never threaten or encourage violence.  I am against violence.  I encourage DEFENSE, which is contrary to the Secret Society's agenda of bullying.  

Processing the loss of Colin Powell in our world hasn't yet fully hit me, due to all the stress I have -- particularly a landlord and housing agency that constantly obsess with ways to set me up for an eviction.  I pay my rent.  I won a prior case they nefariously entered and their attorney (Robert Chessen) is no longer marked as active in Connecticut - which probably means he still gets his BIG, NOT HJIS! bucks. Former long-time embezzler and document frauder Prosecutor Supervisor Lawrence Mark Hurley gets big bucks!  I EMPHASIZED THAT EVEN THOUGH HE WAS DISBARRED, THE BAR ASSOCIATION ALLOWS HIM TO WORK IN LAW OFFICES, OBVIOUSLY "PRACTICING LAW" IN THIS LAWLESS STATE, WHICH MEANS HE IS BACK TO FRAUDING, DECIEVING, ALTERING RECORDS! 11/7/2021 - THEY ARE DISRUPTING MY KEYBOARD NOW, EVEN! I HAD TO REOPEN THIS BLOGPOST TO REMOVE THE CHANGES THAT WERE MADE BY SOME INTERNET MAGGOT. 11/7/2021

The lies never end here.  Yet despite all this and more, I know it would have been much worse if Colin Powell was not here - affiliating with great people who care about accountability and checks and balances.  
I feel like I'm in a black hole now - domestic terrorism most likely will be on the rise unless we stand up to it in our own capacities, as Colin Powell did and was an example for us.  
I can't even say the words, Rest In Peace, Sir.  For it angers me that he was obviously medically murdered like my father was.  It is a blessing his family supported him and stood up for him.  My father didn't have that.  My brother conspired with a paedophile priest from Albany, NY and the couple from Lockheed Martin (wife was a veterinarian assistant - and my cat was poisoned after returning to Connecticut!) that obsessed about this killing agenda.  My father worried if he argued that I should get POA, since they would not just give it to me, that they would give him trouble.  My job was to help my father and I respected what he wanted.  Yet I wish I had made a copy of the letter he wrote that priest, to stay away from him and his home and me.  That evil priest broke in to my father's apartment when I was at the nursing home with my father.  The management told me.  I delivered that letter to the church at my father's wishes.  I feel like I wasn't protecting him at his weakest time by not making a copy of that sealed letter.  

Colin Powell probably had to get the jab so he could go overseas and work on peace projects since our depraved government was run by blood thirsty war-inciters. 

And there were WOMD made by Saddam Hussein in Iraq! 

By the way, the WOMD that CIA asset, Saddam Hussein, made were found in Syria, as Colin Powell suspected, in 2014.  Obama would not give it any media air time but Colin Powell was able to get a 5-min newsflash on Public TV.  I was fortunate to have my TV on at the time, recovering from a Grade 4 torn hamstring caused by a man in front of me as I was getting on the train.  He obviously didn't expect me to grab the handrail, which I did when I didn't have my cart with me.  I would have had a broken neck and/or back if it wasn't for that. He obiously OBVIOUSLY dropped silicone beads or the like on the floor. I had absolutely no grip and 30 people ahead of me had no problem WITH SLIPPING, EVEN WOMEN IN HIGH HEELS.  That guy just stood there and watched!  I didn't dare accuse him while he was standing there incase he had a knife or gun on him to use as another attack. 
 
I was proud to call the building to attention when Colin Powell entered the DIVARTY HQ, accompanied by soldiers.  The DIVARTY soldiers assigned this task failed to and not even anyone in the command staff would when HON COLIN POWELL arrived.  I stood up and saluted and said, "DIVARTY Headquarters, Ten-hut!" The colonel was the full bird for the Signal Battalion and I found it curious no one radio'd him when Colin Powell was approaching.  Maybe Hon. Powell wanted to make a somewhat surprise visit to see what was going on.  
This concludes my testimony in Honor of Colin L. Powell, to the best of my ability.
God bless.

Updated 10/31/2021
Colin Powell Passed away on September 18 or 19 I TYPED 18, GREEN WAS SOMETHING SOMEONE ADDED. I COULD NOT USE A STRIKE-OUT BECAUSE THE WIDGET IS MISSING - I found out on the 19th.  I cried that night!  I have to forge ahead with the looming evil in my life and haven't even sent a sympathy card to their family.  

My apartment keys and personal keys were stolen and it is very stressful just to leave this place.  Hopefully they will turn back up since I left message for the FBI agent I keep in touch with. 

This is all I can type at this time but I will type more once I can.  Housing is weaponized to harm people like myself, who expose and stand up to corruption.  My Housing Rants explain my current struggles.  Including home invasion and loss of a day - they did this to me one time before, yet I was also assaulted.  There was a huge contusion on my back then, and my files were ransacked and spread on my kitchen floor - those documents they did not steal from me, that is!  That was in 2013.  

If you think our country is run as a free Republic, think again!  It is undermined by depraved politicians and beaurocrats - all part of the SUPERIMPERIALSIM.  ((END)) 10/31/2021

NEVERTHELESS, I DO NOT BELIEVE IRAN WAS EVER THE THREAT THAT EVEN NETANYAHU AGREED THEY WERE.  WHY HE SAID THAT WAS INDEED FORCED ON HIM BY USA, MY OPINION.  CIA WAS SET UP BEFORE THE MOSSAD WAS AND RUSSIA, UK AND OTHER COUNTRIES SET UP EQUALLY STRONG "INTELLIGENCE" TO WARD OFF WHAT IS OBVIOUS TERRORISM COMING FROM CIA, MY OPINION. 11/7/2021

    My comment:  USA Foreign policy sucks right now. So if China and Russia and Iran and India want to pick up the slack to promote WORLD PEACE - I am all for it. US is known for being bullies and when our great honorable statesmen like Colin Powell, Rex Tillerson, Jeff Sessions - and others - promote DIPLOMACY - they are SQUISHED. Something to consider. If they posture themselves as stronger than USA - Trump will have no standing, the military would only want to get involved if they want to commit suicide, so Trump will hit a WALL that THEY built and I say GOOD!!! 
  • Look at all the mass shootings!  They make money on mass shootings - snatching and grabbing and using it for nefarious purposes such as building more Transgender clinics!  WAKE UP!

    Colin Powell

    By Laura Dimon 11/11/2013 - Check out her website/blog below - it is quite informative and a great motivator! Also you can share it on Facebook/Twitter - and comment.  I don't take comments on my blog.  It is unmonitored, ad-free 


    https://mic.com/articles/65663/colin-powell-s-13-life-rules-for-any-future-leader#.dpMUYYrmr












    In his book "It Worked for Me: In Life and Leadership," the four-star general and former secretary of state shares the 13 rules he lives by and how he learned them. From staying optimistic to checking your ego, the tips and stories are useful and thought-provoking for anyone, veterans and civilians alike.

    1. "It ain't as bad as you think. It will look better in the morning."



    The guy is honest — he quickly follows this assertion with, "Well ... Maybe it won't," but explains that the rule reflects an attitude and not a prediction. In infantry school, he learned to internalize this message: "Things will get better. You will make them get better." He still strives for that mentality to this day, "despite frequent evidence to the contrary." Before a tough meeting or hostile press conference, he will go to the bathroom, wash and dry his face, look in the mirror, and remind himself: "An infantry officer can do anything." 

    2. "Get mad, then get over it."


    Getting mad and staying mad are two different things. Getting mad is natural and healthy, he says, but staying mad is not useful. "That experience was tested by my colleague the French Foreign Minister Dominique de Villepin who made me — and most Americans — mad, very mad." Powell discusses early 2003, the period leading up to the Iraq War when France had a seat on the UN Security Council and was adamantly opposed to military action in Iraq. De Villepin attacked the U.S. position to the press.
    "I was blindsided," Powell writes. "The White House phones lit up. The TV evening news and the press the next day made my embarrassment complete. I was livid and I made that clear to Dominique ... [He] had screwed things up for me." (The U.S. moved forward and deposed Saddam Hussein in April of that year.)
    But Powell said he knew to not make France his enemy, and sure enough, in February of 2004, he called de Villepin in the middle of the night for an important favor. Former Haitian President Jean Bertrand Aristide had been forced to step down from office, a move which the U.S. had encouraged. As mobs were approaching Aristide's home, Powell was able to quickly get him on a plane headed for South Africa. But South Africa refused to receive him. "Half an hour later, [de Villepin] called back with a solution, and our anxious pilot soon had clear instructions ... My colleague and friend had come to my rescue."
    To put it all in perspective, he says that he often reminds people that the U.S. and France have been married — and in marriage counseling — for more than 230 years. "The ties that bond us are stronger than the occasional stresses that separate us." 

    3. "Avoid having your ego so close to your position that when your position falls, your ego goes with it."


    "I encouraged all my subordinate commanders and staff to feel free to argue with me. My guidance was simple: 'Disagree with me, do it with feeling, try to convince me you are right and I am about to go down the wrong path. You owe that to me; That's why you are here. But don't be intimidated when I argue back. A moment will come when I have heard enough and I make a decision. At that very moment, I expect all of you to execute my decision as if it were your idea.'" Going back to his second rule, he concludes, "I still love you, so get mad, and get over it." 

    4. "It can be done."


    "Once again, it is more about attitude than reality. Maybe it can't be done, but always start out believing you can get it done until facts and analysis pile up against it." It's a balance. "I try to be an optimist, but I try not to be stupid." 
    Wait for #13. 

    5. "Be careful what you choose: You may get it."


    Plain and simple. "You will have to live with your choices. Some bad choices can be corrected. Some you'll be stuck with." 

    6. "Don't let adverse facts stand in the way of a good decision."


    "There will be times when an adverse fact should stop you in your tracks. Never let it stop you completely until you have thought about it, challenged it, and looked for a way to get around it."
    Powell discusses one of his idols: Eisenhower. "On the eve of D-Day," Powell writes, "General Eisenhower faced one of the most difficult decisions any military commander has ever had to make. The weather was dicey; launching the invasion into bad weather could doom it, but he weathermen predicted a possible opening on June 6, 1944. He had been gathering information and planning this operation for months. He knew it in his fingertips. In the loneliness that only commanders know, he made his decision. He wrote a statement taking all the blame if the invasion failed. Yet his informed instinct said, 'Go!' He was right."
    Powell said that whenever he is faced with a difficult decision, he goes back to his military training. "What's the situation? What's the mission? What are the different courses of action?" he asks. "Now, follow your informed instinct, decide, and execute forcefully ... Then take a deep breath and hope it works."

    7. "You can't make someone else's decisions. You shouldn't let someone else make yours."


    Simply put: Go with your gut. After Powell retired from the Army and published his first book, people began wondering about his political ambitions and if he'd run for president. "A strong instinct told me that I had an obligation, a duty, to run ... but I was divided. An equally strong instinct warned that running for president would be a terrible choice for me."
    He spent two sleepless weeks agonizing, and ultimately decided against it. "What drove my final choice was that I did not wake up a single morning wanting to be president ... It was not me. Once I accepted what my instinct was telling me, the choice was clear, the decision easy." 

    8. "Check small things."


    When Powell was in the Army and responsible for inspecting the barracks, he'd check the toilets — not to see if they were clean. "Was there a shortage of toilet paper, were any mirrors cracked, were there any missing showerheads? Finding any of these situations immediately told me one of several things — the unit is running short on upkeep money, no one is checking up on these things to get them fixed, or the troops are not being supervised well enough. Find out which and fix it."

    He states that the large picture of success is built upon many, many small things, and knowledge of those things. "The more senior you become, the more you are insulated by pomp and staff, and the harder and more necessary it becomes to know what is going on six floors down." Real leaders, he says, have a feel for what's going on "in the depths ... where the small things reside."

    9. "Share credit."


    Something he learned in the Army was that it's the human gesture that counts.
    "People need recognition and a sense of worth as much as they need food and water ... Yes, medals, stock options, promotions, bonuses, and pay raises are fine. But to really reach people, you need to touch them." The other side is also true — he welcomes blame when something goes badly. "It is your fault, not theirs. You are responsible. Analyze how it happened, make the necessary fixes, and move on." 

    10. "Remain calm. Be kind."


    The "calm zone" is part of an emotional spectrum that he's worked hard to learn and maintain. He completely lost it once, and clearly hasn't forgotten it. He was a brigade commander and lost his temper at a sergeant who'd gotten a DUI. The young soldier, rather than accepting the wrongness of his own actions, told Powell that the punishment would upset his family.

    "I stood up and slammed my fist so hard on my desk that the glass cover shattered with a great crash." He said that, quite frankly, it felt good. He was infuriated and wanted to show it. But since then, he wrote, "I've learned to display extreme, out-of-my-comfort zone displeasure without destroying government property."
    On the value of staying calm, he writes, "You are in a storm. The captain must steady the ship, watch all the gauges, listen to all the department heads, and steer through it. If the leader loses his head, confidence in him will be lost. So assess the situation, move fast, be decisive, but remain calm," and most importantly, he says, "Never let them see you sweat." 

    11. "Have a vision. Be demanding."


    Purpose. That's the word he uses.
    "Purpose is the destination of a vision ... Leaders must embed their own sense of purpose into the heart and soul of every follower." He discusses setting high (but achievable) standards and sticking to them. In the Army, "[He] never saw a good unit that wasn't always stretching to meet a higher standard." 

    12. "Don't take counsel of your fears or naysayers."


    He will never forget the fear, the feeling, when he first came under fire. It was Vietnam, 1963, and Powell was adviser to a Vietnamese infantry battalion.
    "We were walking down a forested trail when we were hit by small arms fire from an enemy ambush. We returned fire and the Viet Cong enemy quickly melted back into the forest." It was over in less than a minute, but they lost a soldier.
    "That night, as I tried to sleep on the forest floor, I was filled with the realization that the next morning we would probably be ambushed again. And we were ... That morning, and every morning, I had to use my training and self-discipline to control my fear and move on, just like the Vietnamese, just like every soldier since ancient times.
    "Moreover, as a leader, I could show no fear. I could not let my fear control me." 
    13. "Perpetual optimism is a force multiplier."
    It was late one winter night in Korea. Powell and his battalion of 500 soldiers had just finished a tough week of training and were waiting for trucks to take them back to their barracks 20 miles away when word came in that there was a fuel shortage. No trucks; they'd have to walk.

    "[We] went for it, over some terrible hills. It was tough going. I wasn't sure I could keep up with these younger soldiers ... But I pushed it, and so did they, magnificently. At the last mile, we could look down at the lights of Camp Casey. We fell into step and marched into camp in the middle of the night singing out a cadence and waking up everybody in the camp. It was a great night. We had demanded a lot from our soldiers. But we had prepared them, we believed in them, they believed in us, and we had the confidence and optimism that they would succeed."

    I am adding the following to encourage all who read this to please consider and ask the government to do their jobs! 

    If Colin Powell ran for President now, I would cry with joy!  But that is okay if he doesn't because I love him and his family to bits.  Thank you Sir, for all you have saved this country from, especially!



    Mark Zuckerberg is not Jewish!

    Just perform a DNA test! 

    His real name is Robert T. Morris, who obviously destroyed tens of thousands of computers in the USA in 1989!  

    My Opinions Are My Own 

    That was a CIA job!

    They obviously gave him a new identity!

    He attended Harvard University

    He got his PhD from Cornell

    He changed his image to cover up for his crime!  

    I don't care WHO asks - a crime is a crime!

    Consider how many deaths resulted from the Zuckerberg crimes! 

    Morris's ancester may have been the one who created Morris code, changed to Morse code

    To protect his identity

    Used for the first time when Titanic (or the like, since it may not have been the Titanic that sank and they saved the brand new ship and frauded insurance and got rich off it, and also had money to start the Federal Reserve, which most everyone in the REAL society considers to be nefarious) 

    REQUEST TO USA: 

    PLEASE INVESTIGATE! AND KEEP THE TRAITORS FROM ABUSING POWER TO PROTECT MARK ZUCKERBERG AND ALL THE OTHERS!


    THANK YOU!

    I just checked this post and see that blogger has deleted everything - See what a great hero General Colin Powell is? I love the Powells to bits! Please keep praying for their safety and God bless America! He would have been the best President ever, yet the Secret Societies and Cults endanger his life, and the life of his family members. His son Michael was nearly killed when he was an army Captain in Germany. His driver lost control of the jeep he was driving and they went down a huge cliff - I think 100 feet. Michael Powell survived and had already had 16 surgeries when I met Hon. Colin Powell when I was secretary to Command Staff of the Div Artillery, 1988, I believe. Maybe 1989. Hon. Colin Powell was either NSA or Chief of Staff. I think he was NSA then - since the Bush Admin wanted to get him out of the way as they prepare Operation Desert Shield, which turned to Desert Storm when Bush became President. And General Powell had become Secretary of State. btw, there WERE WOMD that Saddam Hussein made. The problem was that US-paid mercenaries purchased them and brought them to Syria - all acts of deception to label Colin Powell as failed intelligence. Who gets the last say on that matter? Indeed, Hon. Powell does, yet the problem is this is a disgrace to USA - on just how crooked Washington has become. God bless.
