Our Mission
WAWA/WeAreWideAwake is my Public Service to America as a muckracker who has journeyed seven times to Israel Palestine since June 2005. WAWA is dedicated to confronting media and governments that shield the whole truth.

We who Are Wide Awake are compelled by the "fierce urgency of Now" [Rev MLK, Jr.] to raise awareness and promote the human dialogue about many of the crucial issues of our day: the state of our Union and in protection of democracy, what life is like under military occupation in Palestine, the Christian EXODUS from the Holy Land, and spirituality-from a Theologically Liberated Christian Anarchist POV.

"We're on a mission from God."
The Blues Brothers

"Observe good faith and justice towards all nations; cultivate peace and harmony with all...and passionate attachments for others, should be excluded; and that, in place of them, just and amicable feelings towards all should be cultivated. The nation which indulges towards another a habitual hatred or a habitual fondness is in some degree a slave...a passionate attachment of one nation for another produces a variety of evils."
George Washington's Farewell Address - 1796

"My aim is to agitate & disturb people. I'm not selling bread, I'm selling yeast."
Unamuno


"Imagine All the People Sharing All the World."
John Lennon

Father Philip Francis Berrigan 

"You can stand me up at the gates of hell, but I won't back down."
Tom Petty

"If I can't dance, it's not my revolution."

November 1, 2011: Stephen Colbert and Presidential Candidate Buddy Roemer on OWS
November 1, 2011: Stephen Colbert and Presidential Candidate Buddy Roemer on OWS


 

[Lakeland, Fl. and OWS]-I learned of long-shot GOP presidential candidate, Governor Buddy Roemer, during his appearance on The Daily Show and emailed a Media Inquiry on September 26, 2011, to his staff member Ryan Williams:


Subject: Media Inquiry

 

Dear Mr. Williams,

 

As a Staff Member of Salem-news.com a Feature Correspondent for Arabisto.com and Columnist for Veteranstoday.com I am seeking Mr. Roemer’s response for an article regarding the Palestinian request for statehood and Representative Markey's  letter to the Super Committee.

 

I am also a citizen of conscience and candidate for US House of Representatives from District 5 in Florida seeking a Presidential candidate I can support and am hoping to learn if Mr. Roemer might be him...

 

 

 

My email continued and three more ensued to Roemer staff members Carlos Sierra and William Pierce, but I never received a reply to my inquiries so today I seized the opportunity to hand deliver the five printed out pages directly to the former Louisiana Democratic congressman and Republican Governor at the end of his Town Hall meeting at Florida Southern College in Lakeland, Florida. 


Roemer is on the road throughout America speaking to university students and concerned citizens regarding his platform that focuses on creating jobs and supporting small businesses, making the country energy independent and cutting back on unfair foreign trade.

 

Roemer also wants to eradicate the power of special interest money in D.C. and is refusing to accept money from any political action committees and his average donation is $60.00.

  

Question 5 on my list was:

On Sept. 17th hundreds of protestors took it to the streets at Bowling Green Park in Manhattan, home of the charging bull in New York’s Financial District, to “take the bull by the horns.”

 

The diverse crowd shared one thing in common being “We Are The 99% that will no longer tolerate the greed and corruption of the 1%,” as stated on the website Occupy Wall Street, where posts also compare the group’s efforts to those used in the pro-democracy movement known as the Arab Spring.

 

What is your message to these people?

 

 

 

Someone else asked the question and Roemer responded that during a class that morning the topic had also been raised. He spoke about his three hours of listening to and debating with the diverse crowd that “looked scruffy and full of nonsense but they have a spirit that can smell corruption, see unfairness and feel they would have to sell themselves to get a job and they won’t do it. I went to learn and wanted to see if they were communists, socialists or unpatriotic. I am a Deep South boy and I know that young people can change the world. I reminded Herman Cain to remember the Civil Rights Movement.

 

“Over 59,000 Americans were killed in Vietnam and the kids who called to stop it were called unpatriotic too. But they stopped that war!

 

“I can smell that GE writes the Tax Code then pays no taxes. I can smell Goldman Sachs who took 600 Billion. I stood in front of the Chinese Embassy in D.C. because Clinton, George W. and Obama gave away our jobs to them-they are all the same! We will have a Fair Trade policy or no trade at all.”

 

Roemer later spoke about his dozens of trips to China and gave an example of what is reaped from what I call Capitalism without Conscience.


In a factory in China, Roemer spoke with one of the many women who work six-twelve hour days a week.  Around her waist was a rope and at the ends were two small children who are denied a childhood so that Americans can buy cheap crap at Wal-Mart.

 

Roemer nailed it when he said the OWS crowd “argued, laughed and booed me. It was a tough three hours and all the candidates should go and listen.”

 

 

 

On October 19th I listened into a 90 minute online interactive Tele-Forum conversation with two of the organizers of OWS. What I heard from “a few thoughtful, committed citizens [who will] change the world [for]: Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has” is that they are building a movement grounded in personal responsibility that is understood as a duty and privilege.

OWS organizer, Sandra Nurse said, “The people went to sleep, but we woke up and we can no longer be complacent. OWS is the catalyst to a shift in consciousness and evolution. It’s about our oneness. 99% are together and we want the 1% to join us.”


A caller-in mentioned the 2001-2010 UN initiative to create an International Decade for a Culture of Peace and Non-violence for the Children of the World.

 

Another caller in spoke about the divisions between the left and right that has isolated them and she wondered if the 99% would evolve into a Third Party of citizens of conscience! -Mr. Jones, OWS and The Second American Revolution



I am a fiscal conservative, spiritual progressive and citizen of conscience for US House of Representatives 2012, who gets much of my TV news on Comedy Central because if I can’t laugh it’s not my revolution; so playing clean up is The Allied Commander of the Colbert SUPER PAC Nation, but please learn more:

"HOPE has two children.The first is ANGER at the way things are. The second is COURAGE to DO SOMETHING about it."-St. Augustine

 "He who is not angry when there is just cause for anger is immoral. Why? Because anger looks to the good of justice. And if you can live amid injustice without anger, you are immoral as well as unjust." - Aquinas

The Paradoxical Commandments
by Dr. Kent M. Keith

People are illogical, unreasonable, and self-centered.
Love them anyway.

If you do good, people will accuse you of selfish ulterior motives.
Do good anyway.

If you are successful, you win false friends and true enemies.
Succeed anyway.

The good you do today will be forgotten tomorrow.
Do good anyway.

Honesty and frankness make you vulnerable.
Be honest and frank anyway.

The biggest men and women with the biggest ideas can be shot down by the smallest men and women with the smallest minds.
Think big anyway.

People favor underdogs but follow only top dogs.
Fight for a few underdogs anyway.

What you spend years building may be destroyed overnight.
Build anyway.

People really need help but may attack you if you do help them.
Help people anyway.

Give the world the best you have and you'll get kicked in the teeth.
Give the world the best you have anyway.

© 1968, 2001 Kent M. Keith

" In the final analysis, it is between you and God.  It was never between you and them anyway."-Mother Teresa


“You cannot talk like sane men around a peace table while the atomic bomb itself is ticking beneath it. Do not treat the atomic bomb as a weapon of offense; do not treat it as an instrument of the police. Treat the bomb for what it is: the visible insanity of a civilization that has ceased...to obey the laws of life.”- Lewis Mumford, 1946



The age of warrior kings and of warrior presidents has passed. The nuclear age calls for a different kind of leadership....a leadership of intellect, judgment, tolerance and rationality, a leadership committed to human values, to world peace, and to the improvement of the human condition. The attributes upon which we must draw are the human attributes of compassion and common sense, of intellect and creative imagination, and of empathy and understanding between cultures."  - William Fulbright



“Any nation that year after year continues to raise the Defense budget while cutting social programs to the neediest is a nation approaching spiritual death.” - Rev. MLK
Establishment of Israel
"On the day of the termination of the British mandate and on the strength of the United Nations General Assembly declare The State of Israel will be based on freedom, justice and peace as envisaged by the prophets of Israel: it will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion it will guarantee freedom of religion [and] conscience and will be faithful to the Charter of the United Nations." - May 14, 1948. The Declaration of the Establishment of Israel
