OKLAHOMA CITY – “This is Radio Clash tearing up the seven veils / This is Radio Clash, please save us, not the whales / This is Radio Clash, underneath the mushroom cloud / This is Radio Clash / You don’t need that funeral shroud …” – This is Radio Clash” by The Clash

This funky, hard-hitting 1981 Clash classic came on the radio yesterday as I drove down the street, thinking about, well, mushroom clouds, I guess. I was right at the light in front of the Bunker Club, with its distinctive atomic bomb mushroom cloud.

I felt as if I was in a daze at that moment. The words “mushroom cloud” snapped me out of it, though.

I was reminded of this series of events as I came out of a detailed dream this morning which seemed focused on the late President Harry S. Truman, our 33rd president, of course, and the only president to approve of atomic weapons to be dropped on an enemy.

In this dream I am on a stage, not different from a spelling bee or quiz show set up. I am being questioned by young people about President Truman, details about his life and his presidency. In the dream I told my young questioners - and the audience - all I could about Truman and his support of using the atomic bomb, twice, over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki back in August 1945.

It seems as if we are in the midst of the early stages of what could very well be called World War III. I know it sounds dramatic, but the synchronicities, dreams and independent research I have conducted since 2012 seem to point in that direction.

It is difficult not to wonder what the next step will be in Syria as the ghoulish, back-from-the-dead neocons look to get that war with Russia and Iran that they have been wanting for years now. They have compromised Trumpy's ear. He can't ignore them. Note the childish, disturbed ravings and weeping of Alex Jones, a truly awful "performance artist" and alt-right Trump enabler who is calling the Russians the "white knights" in all of this. Say what???

We already have made it clear that America does not follow the Constitution and the rule of law. A US president seems to be able to do whatever they want nowadays. We do not think that is what the Founders intended.


The Express, a British tabloid, reported today that the International Monetary Fund is facing “dark clouds” in the near future as the global economy appears to have peaked and is now in a downturn, with one economist saying an economic “earthquake” is merely months away.

And what is the old chestnut about war? That it is the health of the state?

President Truman has been coming up quite a bit, as I've noted for the past year or so here at Dust Devil Dreams, one of my most recent posts referencing the Missouri native in this post - "A strange dust ..."

Truman and Trump have also been paired up in my sync research, as most evidenced last June in my "Trum(an)p" DDD post. It was there that Trump is quoted from a 1990 Playboy interview claiming that he is more or less a fascist who - were he president - would exercise great "strength" and use the military against a hostile country, like Russia. He notes that the "bomb Harry Truman dropped" is a toy compared to what we have today (again, this is a 28-year-old interview with Trump). Adds Trump:

“I’ve always thought about the issue of nuclear war; it’s a very important element in my thought process. It’s the ultimate, the ultimate catastrophe, the biggest problem this world has, and nobody’s focusing on the nuts and bolts of it. It’s a little like sickness. People don’t believe they’re going to get sick until they do. Nobody wants to talk about it. I believe the greatest of all stupidities is people’s believing it will never happen, because everybody knows how destructive it will be, so nobody uses weapons. What bullshit.

It's frightening, reading that interview. Because now Trump is president and he seems to admire Truman's willingness to drop the Big One. He knows the "Mad Dog's" of the world are salivating at the very thought of global thermonuclear war, not unlike General Jack T. Ripper in Dr. Strangelove.

As Barry Grey wrote today at World Socialist Web Site

"There is no question that if Russian forces had been hit, the result could have been Russian retaliation. But it is only a matter of time before a future military attack triggers a direct conflict between the two largest nuclear powers in the world. Russian President Vladimir Putin himself warned Sunday that further Western attacks on Syria would inevitably lead to “chaos in international relations.”

Each such attack underscores how real and present is the danger of a massive war with catastrophic consequences. The world is witnessing an eruption of US and world imperialism that threatens to destroy human civilization ..."

A direct clash between two "superpowers" in our near future? 


And at Goro Adachi's synchromystic Super Torch Ritual website, in a new post titled "Syrian phoenix timecode," Adachi notes that Sirius is the “Dog Star” and it is “reborn” in late July and early August in the Northern Hemisphere, reappearing like a phoenix. A “Sirius rising.” All this as ancient Syria is torn apart from all sides.

Adachi writes: "It’s certainly fitting that Syria, resembling the word “Sirius”, emerged big during our Easter window. Syria as noted before is Levant meaning “rising”. Syria rising or Sirius/phoenix rising i.e. heliacal rising of the Dog Star, which will take place at the latitude of the US airstrike sites in Syria around August 6-8, coinciding with the anniversaries of the first and only nuclear attacks in history, Hiroshima (August 6) and Nagasaki (August 9) in the Land of the Rising Sun."


And as I write this, I am listening to author/researcher Jim Brandon introducing his just-released CD - Sirius Rising: Mr. Downard and the Synchromystical Boson - focused on the research of Ardmore, Oklahoma native James Shelby Downard, the godfather of what we now know as synchromysticism.

This fascinating recording is exceedingly important for those interested in learning more about what is going on in our very strange world, from the destruction of primordial matter at the Trinity Site in New Mexico on July 16, 1945 (first atomic bomb test) to the "Killing of the King" (John F. Kennedy) on Nov. 22, 1963. Our friend Loren Coleman, a synchromystic researcher and operator of the Twilight Language blog, has written about the Downard and Michael Hoffman research with King Kill/33, the "33" being the line of latitude where Trinity Site was located and where JFK was murdered in Dallas - near the Trinity River. Coleman recommended listening to Sirius Rising. A most wise recommendation!

As Downard notes in this recording is that Kennedy was reading Mary Renault's The King Must Die, a historical novel set in Ancient Greece prior to his death. An eerie coincidence?

And we should note that Adam Gorightly's excellent book on Downard, James Shelby Downard's Mystical War features a chapter titled "Sirius Rising." Occultists have long believed that Sirius was the "hidden god of the cosmos" or "the sun behind the sun." 

And in the excellent Depression Era-set HBO series Carnivale, I noted an episode where the troubled carnie, with psychic abilities, is shown the coming of "a false sun" - the coming test at Trinity Site not far from Alamogordo, New Mexico - near the cursed Jornada del Muerto - "Journey of the Dead Man."
