… The Shift in Human Nature

You're starting to see integrity change. Awareness recalibrates integrity, and the Human Being who would sit there and take advantage of another Human Being in an old energy would never do it in a new energy. The reason? It will become intuitive, so this is a shift in Human Nature as well, for in the past you have assumed that people take advantage of people first and integrity comes later. That's just ordinary Human nature.

In the past, Human nature expressed within governments worked like this: If you were stronger than the other one, you simply conquered them. If you were strong, it was an invitation to conquer. If you were weak, it was an invitation to be conquered. No one even thought about it. It was the way of things. The bigger you could have your armies, the better they would do when you sent them out to conquer. That's not how you think today. Did you notice?

Any country that thinks this way today will not survive, for humanity has discovered that the world goes far better by putting things together instead of tearing them apart. The new energy puts the weak and strong together in ways that make sense and that have integrity. Take a look at what happened to some of the businesses in this great land (USA). Up to 30 years ago, when you started realizing some of them didn't have integrity, you eliminated them. What happened to the tobacco companies when you realized they were knowingly addicting your children? Today, they still sell their products to less-aware countries, but that will also change.

What did you do a few years ago when you realized that your bankers were actually selling you homes that they knew you couldn't pay for later? They were walking away, smiling greedily, not thinking about the heartbreak that was to follow when a life's dream would be lost. Dear American, you are in a recession. However, this is like when you prune a tree and cut back the branches. When the tree grows back, you've got control and the branches will grow bigger and stronger than they were before, without the greed factor. Then, if you don't like the way it grows back, you'll prune it again! I tell you this because awareness is now in control of big money. It's right before your eyes, what you're doing. But fear often rules. …

'Crazy' ex-minister's bags of cash scandalize Argentina

Buenos Aires (AFP) - It's been a heck of a week for Jose Lopez, an Argentine ex-cabinet minister who was arrested trying to hide bags stuffed with cash and jewels at a monastery.

On Monday, Lopez, 55, seemed like any ordinary politician, with a slight paunch, graying hair and a fairly anodyne job as a member of the South American regional parliament.

On Tuesday, he was caught red-handed tossing 160 suitcases and duffel bags containing more than $9 million over a wall into the garden of an old monastery outside Buenos Aires.

On Wednesday, his lawyer said he was delirious and suffering hallucinations.

And on Thursday, he showed up at his first court appearance hitting himself on the head, shouting and demanding cocaine.

His lawyer, Fernanda Herrera -- who is better known in Argentina as a cumbia singer and former model -- says her client is mentally unfit to testify.

Herrera, a curvaceous peroxide blonde, had an ambulance take Lopez to the hospital Wednesday after his arrest.

But doctors who examined him said they found nothing wrong besides stress and high blood pressure.

The bizarre case is scandalous even by the standards of Argentina, a country that has been around the block a few times when it comes to corruption.

Lopez served for 12 years in the cabinets of Argentina's last two presidents, Nestor and Cristina Kirchner, as the deputy minister for public works.

His unexplained bags of cash have embarrassed the left-wing power couple's party, the Front for Victory, which is still stinging from losing the presidency to business-friendly conservative Mauricio Macri in December.

22 hours to count

Lopez and his former boss, ex-planning minister Julio de Vido, managed the federal government's public works projects under the Kirchners (2003-2015).

They were the only two ministers to survive the various cabinet reshuffles across the couple's 12 years in power.

The two elderly nuns who now live at the old monastery said Lopez and De Vido were regular visitors who would stop by with late archbishop Ruben Di Monte, a close ally of the Kirchners who died in April.

Lopez "is a very good man. He used to come every year to help us," said one.

The other nun, who was present when Lopez was arrested, wasn't so sure. She said he was "half crazy" and told her: "They're going to put me in jail... because I stole money to help you."

Investigators are now trying to figure out how Lopez amassed a stash of cash, jewels and luxury watches so large it took police nearly 22 hours to count it all.

The total came to $8,982,047, plus 153,610 euros, 49,800 Argentine pesos, 425 yuan and two Qatari riyals, officials said.

Buried cash?

Since Macri came to power in December vowing to crack down on graft, authorities have opened sweeping investigations into alleged corruption, money laundering and tax evasion by the Kirchners and their inner circle.

Cristina Kirchner is facing money-laundering and embezzlement accusations and an indictment for depleting state coffers by having the central bank sell dollar futures at an artificially low price.

Several business executives close to her and her late husband are under investigation for illicit enrichment.

The former head of the Argentine court of auditors, Leandro Despouy, says he long suspected the Kirchners' inner circle was diverting huge sums of cash from public works projects.

"The dirty money was always in cash," said Despouy, who served from 2002 to 2016.

"In public works projects, there's a very clear way to accumulate money. Advances were paid whether construction started or not, and in cash."

The problem, he said, was how to hide the money.

He said he used to have nightmares about where it could be.

"There was no way to get it out of the country," he said. "The only way was to bury it."

Macri came to power in December promising a sea change in Argentine politics.

But he now faces corruption allegations of his own.

The president is under investigation for suspected tax evasion after his name came up in the Panama Papers leaks of offshore accounts in tax havens.

He denies wrongdoing.
