#2 The Threat of Nuclear Holocaust
By Johnny Blue Star

Several years ago, I worked for an organization that planned on being a platform for political empowerment through the Internet. This organization was modeled on the idea that representative democracy was good for America. At the time, I was concerned about opening up a platform for anyone- because I believed that the elite who controlled this country could easily buy their way into such a platform and therefore subvert any real democratic and humanistic outcomes that might follow such an enterprise. If you follow what Jefferson said- when he spoke about democracy, he said you need an “informed citizenry” to make it happen. I did not want the Koch brothers or others barging into such a platform- and, now, when I see the plethora of people who supported and voted for Clinton and Trump, I see the dangers of not having what I call “an informed and enlightened citizenry’ at the forefront of a platform- a platform whose members and purposes CATEGORICALLY STAND FOR SOMETHING.

That SOMETHING is human and citizen rights that have been taken from us by our corporations and government through an alliance that has perfected the ability to vote in or push forward policies that directly confront the constitutional rights, political and our economic well-being. Our rights were provided to us by our Founding Fathers and the progressive improvements made that followed, giving us, at least by law, the opportunity to vote regardless of certain unfair ethnic, financial, gender, minority or age characteristics. Given this swelling of voters who often did not know their own welfare was being compromised, I did not want to create a platform to enhance the same destructive forces that have been asleep for so many years, particularly following 911, that have sought to validate the destruction of my country’s dedication to human and citizen rights.

So, I am in the process of developing a social networking platform called LE PLANÈTE, which I will explain in more detail in continuing posts. This platform will provide a way to voters’ concern to make meaningful impact on our elected officials and on government agencies. In this discussion, I will focus on one of the key reasons why informed citizens should help take their country back. In fact, it is a matter of life or death- one that many citizens probably don’t know much about or think about. Those of us who remember the Cuban missile crisis might be a bit more sensitive to this decades old reality.

We are talking about the dangers of a possible nuclear holocaust. Every citizen in the United States and the rest of the world should have been aware of how for decades, yet probably unknown to the majority of human beings, that their lives, their families, their friends and their entire country- indeed, the entire planet- could be largely lost in a matter of hours- with the seeds of total destruction being firmly planted in the sky and earth under the banner of Mutually Assured Destruction in a few short hours.  One of the inalienable rights we are undoubtedly promised is the right to life- without which liberty and the pursuit of happiness is not possible.

Still, although many of our world citizens may have been oblivious, 122 nations throughout the world recently acknowledged their right to life and survival when recently when the UN adopted an historic nuclear treaty. In the following segment from Real News with anchor, Aaron Maté, asks Ira Helfand, the co-founder and past president of Physicians for Social Responsibility to talk about what the treaty means and how it evolved.

This treaty is an historic and amazing response to anyone who might have thought that no one was listening. Yet the process to move forward has not been easy and, as we see in the next segment, where Aaron addresses Rick Wayman of the Nuclear Age Peace Foundation:

Right now, the little active and potential wars we are fighting, directly or indirectly, could lead to a planetary holocaust. So when you see confusing, contradictory and often negative government policies that have or could lead to war with nuclear powers, one should be nervous.

With 25000 or more nuclear weapons on Earth now and something like 2500 on High Alert, ready to be vetted for retaliation and launched in just a few minutes by a President or Prime Minister, the end of our world and the deaths of ourselves and all the people we love could be a matter of minutes- and, even worse- if that’s possible, it could just be a kind of mistake. Nuclear war could be started by an accident.

How did our planet get into this ridiculously dangerous situation? It started with the success of the Manhattan Project, which ultimately created the bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II. This was a secret program, totally unknown to the world or to the American people. It was said to be helpful in saving American soldiers in a potential invasion of Japan. What it did was, in fact, pave the way for policy of MAD, an acronym for Mutually Assured Destruction, which has put the entire population of our planet in risk of their lives and all their friends and relatives – as soon as the nuclear arms race began, which started with the Soviet Union and now including 9 different countries.

Let’s hear how Ira Helfand explains the danger.

What has this got to do with taking our country back? It has to do with an ever-escalating arms race that can, at any moment, provide the justification for more trillions of dollars dumped into an end-the-world in an hour or so scenario. And even if the escalation doesn’t include nuclear weapons, the endless little wars feed the voracious appetites of the Military Industrial Complex, composed of gigantic companies which feed our Washington political campaigns with millions of dollars. Historically, this is the Congress that was supposed to declare war after protracted reflection but more or less surrendered that right to an Imperial Presidency.

The threat of nuclear war and these endless wars are only one part of a picture that are controlled overtly by monied sources which control conventional media and, because of the passivity of many of our fellow Americans, are the ones who hold the real keys to meddling with the media. The only reason that these endless wars are so easily approved into a blood-soaked reality is that our elected officials are more interested in holding their positions in line with their campaign financiers than they are with their sound asleep constituents who are now letting them literally downsize whatever human rights and financial security they have left- right beneath their noses- because their decision-making is guided by the largely programmed reality set forth for them by the media.

To take our country back, we must be empowered to take political action. And to do that, we must take back our human and citizen rights, which in my view, include the right to health and safety under the banner of the inalienable right to “life” and the right to our human and citizen rights under the banner of “liberty.” As to happiness, we need the security of being able to protect our human and citizen rights ourselves. For centuries, we were progressively gaining those rights, initiated but not completed by the Founding Fathers.

For this reason, as I have mentioned, I am initiating a social network called Le Planete, which, if nothing else initially, will be an incubator for democracy- for a real democracy controlled by citizens who are enlightened and informed. As Jefferson stated, democracy needs an informed citizenry to work. I am taking this idea one step further, I believe we need an enlightened and informed citizenry.

Hi Mr. President-

I know it is a bit presumptuous to write to you- because I am probably could get a record for the lowest outreach of any talk show host in the world. And why should you listen to me? Further, I am not currently a fan of most of your policies and refused to vote for either you or Clinton. My former programs have not been favorable to you or Clinton.

However, I heard something when Robert Kennedy was interviewed recently by a reporter he accepted your position as the vaccine investigator. The reporter asked him, “What Kind of a President will Donald Trump become?” He answered, “The kind of President that he wants to be. He can do anything he likes.” (all that is paraphrased from memory).

Well that got to me- because I know you have some great qualities and perhaps a ton of political courage. And, if you make the right decisions and continue to grow, maybe you could be our greatest. It’s possible.

So I decided to look at things differently. Including you, as President.

Let me start with this:

Every single person you encounter in your life has a soul, has a connection to God and has the potential for real human goodness. It doesn’t matter what or who they are. It’s just the way people are created (“…all men are created equal and endowed with their Creator with certain inalienable rights… and among those….). Yes, even Islamic terrorists

and secular psychopathic murderers have souls. They have just fallen into the Dark Side. But despite the fanciful Star Wars phrase, the Dark Side is no laughing matter. It is a pool of destructive, violent and toxic psychically-transformative energy that can reduce a person to a murderous instrument of destruction- serial killers, terrorists of all stripes and hues and those who make and implement genocidal policies and practices all are immersed in this pool.

How do they get there? By being selfish, egotistical and cruel- and falling deeper and deeper into the trap of their own self-proclaimed superiority- sometimes identified with racial, ethnic, genetic or intellectual categories or a combination thereof.

The greatest power a truly great man has is the spiritual power of discernment. Well, forgive me here- because I am not really talking about Fundamentalist concepts- but rather of a more Universalist and perhaps scientific or evidential view of spirituality- and I don’t want to be misinterpreted.

Discernment means, in this context, an awareness of various forms of consciousness, including the concomitant thoughts and feelings, that human beings possess BUT ALSO THE AWARENESS that every human being on Earth has the power of goodness inside them and THE POSSIBILITY OF REDEMPTION.

Oh, then should we give up our military and let people run amuck through our borders, selling drugs and carrying out terrorist plots- because people are inherently good? NO. WE HAVE TO PROTECT OUR CITIZENS and we don’t have much time to analyze an event when that event includes someone who wants to kill us, murder our family or physically destroy us with instruments of military destruction. So, yes, we still need law enforcement, military and various kinds of security.

So, why bring all this up?

Because in every policy you create, modify or carry out- you have to use discernment- to maximize its effect. To do this, you must USE EXTREME EMPATHY and step into the shoes of your allies, neutral audiences, opponents and enemies- and peer into their souls- so you discern what will be the consequence of your policies- even onea that involve the crosshairs of our weapons being turned on a self-confessed enemy of our country or even mankind in general.  YOU NEED TO KNOW HOW EVERYONE IS ABOUT YOUR POLICIES- INCLUDING HOW THEY FEEL, HOW THEY THINK AND HOW THEY WILL ACT.

I BELIEVE YOU HAVE THIS POWER OF DISCERNMENT and I also believe YOU ARE NOT USING IT PROPERLY and you are stepping into one helluva mess because of it.

IF YOU WANT TO UNIFY THIS COUNTRY ON YOUR SIDE- and not just use rhetoric to some rather short term advantage, we need to UNDERSTAND EVERYONE ON THE PLAYING FIELD by STEPPING INTO THEIR SHOES!

I hate stop writing but this is already too long. Still, it documents what I think is missing in your approach to handling things and what is causing you to having to fall into the slings and arrows of some amazing amount of hate throughout the world.

I would prefer that DONALD TRUMP BE LOVED AND RESPECTED and not hated.



This blog is another update on New Galaxy’s efforts to further develop Threshold Radio and the Bridge of Light Musical Alliance.

Our understanding is that we can pursue  and see manifest all our real and important dreams in the state of Divine Presence- but to do this, we must give up those thoughts and feelings which separate us from this Presence. These elements, when separated from contact with the Creator could be called the human ego, that sense of self that is truly separated from Source and its intentions.

Threshold Radio is slowly moving towards a new dimension in Empowerment Radio.

We have spent the last month or so preparing for a rather important transition to expanding our programming to a daily show consisting of one or two hours a day five times a week, which will encompass broadcasting live and taking calls from listeners on Skype. This has involved restructuring our archived programs into more convenient hourly units, redoing elements of our websites and evolving our technique of posting for friends and colleagues. Until this happens more regularly, we will be posting our archived programs and also intermittent new broadcasts. Stay tuned for the next dimension!

As a division of New Galaxy Enterprises, a media content development company, Threshold Radio features the news, business efforts, personal relationships and goals from a universalist spiritual point of view. As words like “spirituality” and “universality” can clearly be used in a wide variety of ways, I would like to clarify what I mean here and what we intend to project through New Galaxy Enterprises and its divisions, Threshold Radio and Bridge of Light Productions, which is geared towards the music of social action and spirituality. Our concept in Threshold Radio is find the threads of unity that tie truly spiritual people together, whatever practices and beliefs energize and empower them as sons and daughters of their Creator, the true source of real self-empowerment.

I began writing my latest political thriller, “Russian Holiday,” on a trip to Russia, during the most bizarre election campaign in history between two of the most unpopular candidates ever to win the nomination of a major political party in the United States.  At first, I thought I could make a choice between the two; select the lesser of the two evils; but then the propaganda wheels for the military industrial complex started spinning stories about Russia preparing for nuclear war.  It soon became clear to me that “We came, we saw, he died.”[1] Hilary Clinton’s Russia bashing was a prelude to the workup of a new cold war to justify billions in government contracts for arming Europe and possibly the Ukraine.  This essay is not to be interpreted as slanted “liberal” or “conservative.”  I am just noting what I observed.

After World War II, the United States economy had to shift from a wartime to peacetime economy.  However, that left the defense industry, which had been the driving force behind the wartime economy, out to dry.  They needed an enemy.  Thus, the “cold war” was begun with the Communists as the enemy.  Fast forward to the 21st Century.  No more Soviet Union, no more Communist threat.  Vacillating Donald Trump at first declared NATO obsolete, but then tried to tweet himself out of it.[2]  But Trump was not the first one to declare NATO obsolete.  Putin himself declared in 2014 that NATO was part of the old “bloc” system and had outlived itself.[3]

The real-life setting of this novel in civil war-torn Syria is a perfect example of how “Spy vs. Spy” can be a very dangerous game.  In 2016, the United States Treasury opened a terrorism finance inquiry into a large number of brand new Toyota trucks being used by ISIS.  The U.S. State Department and the British government had both provided the “Free Syrian Army” (FSA), a loose group of rebels who had expressed a desire to topple the al-Assad government, with the trucks, which were now being used by Islamic terrorists.[4]

In 2016, in the northern province of Aleppo, different groups fighting the Syrian civil war are vying for the same territory, among them the Free Syrian Army, the U.S.-armed Kurdish YPG, and ISIS.  Free Syrian Army officials have cited a “deepening divide” between themselves and the Kurds, with the Kurds stating they could probably eliminate the FSA in a war.  Many other groups fighting in the area include the Martyrs of Syria Brigade, the Northern Storm Brigade, an Islamist FSA unit, the Islamic Front, which welcomes jihadist fighters, and the Syrian Islamic Liberation Front.[5]  These are not “moderate” rebels and the United States claims.  They are not “friendly” to the United States or its interests.  They are mercenaries, and, in some cases, terrorists.  According to Putin, the very arming of these groups by the US is giving ISIS an economic advantage.[6]

U.S. Special Forces Officer Jack Murphy reported in September 2016 that the U.S. policy of aiding Syrian rebels had the Special Forces training and arming Syrian anti-ISIS forces, while the CIA was maintaining a parallel program to arm anti-Assad insurgents.  Murphy reported that distinguishing between former al-Qaeda affiliate al-Nusra and the Free Syrian Army (supported by the CIA) was impossible, and that, as early as 2013, FSA commanders were defecting to al-Nusra, while still retaining the FSA moniker to maintain access to CIA-provided weaponry.  He also reported among the rebels that U.S. Special Forces and Turkish Special Forces were training, at least 95% of them were either working in terrorist organizations or supporting them.  This would lead credence to Russia’s contentions that the Syrian rebels are no more than terrorists themselves.[7]

Witnesses describe Syrian rebels in Aleppo, including the FSA, al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham and Nour el din Zinki, as terrorists themselves.[8]  In July 2015, Syrian rebels blew up the western gate of the UNESCO protected heritage site, the Citadel of Aleppo with underground explosives.[9]  The U.S.-backed rebels, who are now fighting the Russians in Syria, have blown up the Carlton Hotel and the Palace of Justice in the same manner.  Aleppo itself is almost completely destroyed.[10]

So, it seems not only is the choice of who to support a mess, as it usually has been with interventions in  Afghanistan and Iraq, but the United States and Russia are fighting a proxy war against each other.  There are so many factions fighting for their own individual objectives in the Syrian civil war it is difficult to sort them all out.  What is sure, however, is that Russians were the only ones invited by the legitimate Syrian government.



I don’t condone or support genocide or terrorism.  However, I don’t think regime change is the proper paradigm to follow.  Even conservatives like Ted Cruz recognize the fact that putting Saddam Hussein and Muamar Gaddafi out of power has destabilized the region and led to an increase in terrorism.[11] Call Vladimir Putin a dictator if you may, but his idea of stabilizing the war and then calling for free, monitored elections seems saner to me than arming and training different factions of rebel groups and then having to fight the same groups you have armed with American lives.

About Kenneth Eade

Described by critics as “one of our strongest thriller writers on the scene,” author Kenneth Eade, best known for his legal and political thrillers, practiced law for 30 years before publishing his first novel, “An Involuntary Spy.” Eade, an award-winning, best-selling Top 100 thriller author, has been described by his peers as “one of the up-and-coming legal thriller writers of this generation.” He is the 2015 winner of Best Legal Thriller from Beverly Hills Book Awards and the 2016 winner of a bronze medal in the category of Fiction, Mystery and Murder from the Reader’s Favorite International Book Awards. His latest novel, “Paladine” is currently a quarter-finalist in Publisher’s Weekly’s BookLife Prize for Fiction. Eade has authored three fiction series: The “Brent Marks Legal Thriller Series”, the “Involuntary Spy Espionage Series” and the “Paladine Anti-Terrorism Series.” He has written fifteen novels which have been translated into French, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese.

“I’ve been writing all my life, but began publishing my work out of a passion for the environment. My wife, Valentina, is a professional photographer, who worked for two years on an environmental exhibition called, “Bee Cause I Care” which was exhibited by the Prince Albert II Foundation and is now touring cities in France to bring awareness to the importance of pollinators and the dangers facing them. I penned a few articles on the subject for the Los Angeles Daily Journal and turned my research into my first book, “Bless the Bees.” That passion continued with the publication of my novel, “An Involuntary Spy,” which is an action thriller that also points to the dangers of genetically engineered food. Then I began publishing the “Brent Marks Legal Thriller Series,” which, in part, is based on actual experiences during my long career in law.

“Now I divide most of my time between France, where I have resided for the better part of 10 years, and Russia. I try to put as much realism in my novels as possible, and they all revolve around important social issues. I treasure all of my readers and love to hear from them, whether it’s good or bad. Sometimes I make changes based on their suggestions and one reader has inspired a character that has appeared in my latest two novels. Everyone who signs up on my mailing list at http://www.kennetheade.com gets a free ebook and I give away a Kindle Fire every month to a lucky winner on the list. I love this new adventure and hope you enjoy taking it with me.”

                         TALES FROM THE THRICE BORN

The Ship was called “El Tesoro Del Cielo”- Treasure from Heaven- even though it was a very earthbound Spanish treasure ship- on a journey to mysterious treasure. Yet this ship whose Captain and crew longed for this treasure- would very soon encounter another gift from the celestial regions above. But not a pleasant gift, indeed. In this short excerpt, we experience an omen, a fiery foreshadowing of things to come. 



“Every hand to rigging!” Estefano’s voice bellowed over the wind and rain. “Look lively, men!” Two dozen sailors were already at their duties on the wet and slick deck, every muscle taut in a steely effort to hold the ship’s lines against the few bucking sails not yet rolled to posts. A flash of lightning through the black sky silhouetted the Captain’s grim features as he tied off a bowline. A loud crash from the bow made him look there. Voices called from the hold, the quartermaster’s shrill Spanish cursing the loudest below deck. The storm had risen out of nowhere, tossing the El tesoro del cielo on the angry night waters of the Caribbean’s notorious Dragon’s Teeth, sending the crew scattering on deck and within its large hold. Every mast was furled on the Spanish galleon, all cargo secured in the hold, but it was not enough. A sea-splitting thunderclap echoed across the hurling waves, followed by a crack of lightning that hit the foresail derrick. Flames erupted along the post, lacing up to the wood to the canvas, fire spreading instantly, the crosstrees framing a fiery cross near the forecastle. Half the sailors on deck paused for an instant to stare in shock at the flaming symbol, faces ashen as they hurriedly crossed themselves. “God’s blood! We’re cursed now!” Estefano cried as he latched a rope dowel. “Remember your position!” the Captain called to his first mate. “Set an example, Estefano!” “Aye, Capitán!” Rain splattered man and ship alike as the helmsman tried to steer the treasure ship among the bellicose waves threatening to sink it. The flaming crosstree of rigging was an omen to many in the crew, but every spare hand grabbed a line and bucket and began dousing the fire. An eerie light of fire and lightning washed the deck as men scrambled to put out the flames. It was by far the worst storm the Captain had seen in his twelve years as master of the ship. His fist gripped a thick rope to the center mast above, the rigging whipping violently in the gusting winds as he looked out over deck which was now a menagerie of water, flames, oaths, and desperate seamen battling those flames. Another crash rolled up from the hold, and this time the quartermaster’s curses were louder.

For centuries, mankind has been fascinated by the idea of fallen angels. Imagine a sublime species of Creation, seated beside a Heavenly Throne, willing to risk everything to war against the Creator- with devastating consequences for themselves and mankind. The Fall of Angels, which John Milton poetically transcribed in Paradise Lost is intimately connected with the Fall of Man, for, in traditional religious terms, what is the Devil but the a Fallen Angel? And is it not the Devil’s province to tempt and torment man with his bag of tricks and host of demons? But suppose we look at this story in a slightly different way- perhaps through the lens of a sci-fi science fiction thriller?  Perhaps in something called, “The Thrice Born- Part I of the Pray for the Angels Trilogy?” by Carlos Lopez Avery and Johnny Blue Star.

We are very thrilled to be able to present to our readers a merry excursion into the fate of the Fallen Angels in a context that mixes science fiction, horror, suspense with a touch of ancient myth and, hopefully, profound speculation- not untouched by a bit of comedy sprinkled here and there. The Thrice Born is the first of a series of books and films called, Pray for the Angels! that address one of the most widely disseminated stories in Western Civilization. Yes, it takes a light-hearted touch but it also touches on realities that have been treated not only Biblically but in apocryphal texts, most notably the Book of Enoch. Also, a lot literature and films. Nonethless, prepare for some surprises! In this story, we feature a very intimate angelic encounter that has occurred over aeons of time, since the beginnings of Mankind. Yes, we have borrowed from all kinds of speculative accounts of what this all means- Were the Nephilim aliens intervening in the genetic fate of mankind, interdimensional travelers who aided mankind’s early history or angels that largely became demonic because of transgressions against their Creator? We explore our own theory here- but truly this is just a fictional platform- not any kind of philosophic commitment. We are just novelists having a bit of fun but not too shy of trying to make you think about what the Descent of the Angels could actually mean. If we were late night radio hosts, we would probably be trying mainly to make you afraid but as novelists we are not totally heartless in this way. Still, we can’t
