Intervention

WWIII
Leaders had hit an all time low as world war became an imminent threat. Military in China, Russia, United States and North Korea flexed their warfare missiles, like a dominant “Silverback” gorilla protecting his females and offspring. 

The United Nations Security Council gave its last effort towards a good-will attempt to solve this precarious and eminent breakdown in communication. Russia, United States and North Korea stood their ground, defiant of each other. Russia’s selfish goal to protect a Syrian dictator boiled over, as an chemical warfare attack on defenceless children was the last straw to a peaceful resolution.  

Each powerhouse country took necessary steps by moving their warships closer to the eminent threat. The arrogant North Korea leader thought he was the most powerful of them all, only to realize China was watching them a lot closer then thought. It was clear China and United States weren’t going to allow North Korea to cause any collateral damage.  

But Russia was indeed another issue altogether. 

Canada, the United Kingdom, Germany and France supported the United Nations Security Council effort to resolve this increasingly grave situation, hoping President Putin would realize this kind of conflict would end up detrimental to everyone concerned. During the last pitch council meeting, it was reminded a Nuclear War wouldn’t benefit anyone, leaving the complete destruction of earth, as we know it. 

The meeting looked promising when President Putin took the initiative to show up for this crucial meeting-of-the-minds, all in an effort to resolve their differences. In the end, President Putin only wanted respect and welfare for his people. It was a pivotal point to include Putin in as part-of-the-team, inviting him as an alliance to the betterment of mankind. 

The moment was propitious, as their efforts met with seemingly success, until one fateful dark night on August 4th, 2020 ( the eve before, marking the unforgettable time in history when the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima), something went terribly wrong.  

Along the Mediterranean, in the middle-eastern coastline of Syria, an American attack submarine equipped with nuclear weapons from the Virginia class (SSN-744), was hit by a Russia Kirov-class battlecruiser. Tensions were high as each superpowers exercised their right to territorial control, until the Russia battlecruiser called the American’s bluff, taking action, destroying the Virginia class submarine.  

There was no turning back now – it had reached DEFCON 1. 

All talks seized to exist as declaration of war by the United States on the Soviet Russia Empire was announced on August 5th, 2020. WWIII was enviable. Just adding insult to injury, North Korea launched a nuclear bomb towards Israel but was surprisingly intercepted by Japan. The world as we knew it turned in complete chaos, from protests to vandalism.  

World unrest had reached its limit.

Just when you thought nothing else could possibly go wrong, it happened. What was thought to be an impeding threat from the cycle of our Sun, known as a geomagnetic storm, most commonly referred to as CME ( Corona Mass Ejection), it turned into something more then we could ever imagined. Experiencing a worldwide blackout, scientists shrugged their shoulders, placing blame on the Sun. 

But it was more then that…way more.

Within seconds, every form of telecommunications seized to exist. It was soon realized this occurrence was something different, very different. For the first time in human history the world stood still, crippled from any kind of action. Satellites began falling out of orbit, while aircrafts across the globe malfunctioned. Manmade hardware literally rained across earth’s atmosphere, including the massive International Space Station. As much as NASA engineers tried everything in their power to keep ISS in orbit, it crashed and burned into the atmosphere, hitting the ocean landscapes below. Lucky for the incredible training and fast action of the astronauts, they quickly aborted the mission. It was unreal ; no explanation of the horrific failures, it just happened. 

All seemed lost; then it happened. 

In our dismay of disbelief, a shadow of darkness filled the horizons of the earth, engulfing any source of natural light. What was it? What could possibly be so big it would fill the earth a hundred thousand times over? We waited, unsure of our fate, desperately trying to focus on the impending dark globe. OMG ! It looked like…yes…no it can’t be, but there it was.  NO GOD!  It can’t be…Jupiter?  

For GOD sakes, it’s scientifically impossible! 

It was surreal but there it was, Jupiter.  If I didn’t see it for myself, I would have never believed it.  Is it really possible, after billions of years, Jupiter’s gravitational pull finally grabbed earth?  Without warning the dark blue sky filled with the most deleterious electrically storm I have ever seen in my lifetime. Awestruck by its force and beauty I was scared, because deep inside I felt the looming danger. Catching us completely off guard (with abrupt force) gigantic thunderbolts rocked the earth in a fiery display of power, knocking us off the ground in one clean swoop. Shaken, I got up to see an image within the thunderbolts themselves. Yes, there THEY were. OMG ! Had the scriptures been right all this time ?  

Revelations 20 : 8 “…he will gather them together for battle–a mighty army, as numberless as sand along the seashore.”

Have the GODS returned?  

Throughout the world, out of the thunderbolts came these giants of men and women, like the Greek mythology of gods and goddesses.  

In the likeness of man THEY came.

Each one spoke with a thunderous voice and said,” WE have come to Intervene. This is your final intervention. Your tribulations of time has come to an end.  All these things we do , All the things we are , All that humanity is, will soon be forgotten, like the sands of time. With the little time humans had on earth, throughout the birth of this wondrous planet WE call EARTH, the Children of the GODS from the HEAVENS have failed. Yes – WE have failed. Our HUMAN creation has failed US all. Maybe WE should have taken more time to nurture your growth and developed YOU into an understanding peaceful species. Maybe then, YOU would have the courage to understand each other, to realize the fate of humanity and how precious YOU really are.”

In unison, THEY paused. 

Their golden eyes stared aimlessly, as each locks of hair snapped the air like lightening bolts, and then their molten lips spoke,”YOU were our last hope as WE heavily relied on our creation to further themselves away from the disease and destruction of POWER, releasing YOU from what WE have been plagued for the past 150 millennium. It was our hope WE were transforming YOU into a new improved species for the betterment of humanity and with us in our eternity.

BUT, WE have failed you as YOU have failed us. 

The GODS of the HEAVENS have made a ruling not in your favour but in respect to the birth of MOTHER EARTH. WE will rid the planet WE called EARTH from the atrocities of what WE call HUMAN BEINGS, to better the Cosmic life of creation. 

YOU were not the only ones in the universes but one of many. WE had hope in our creation. YOU were to become the best of the best, the best of all creations, being an example of them all. But now, this is no longer the case. Like droplets of water lost forever into the depths of the ocean, so will humanity be forever lost and forgotten.  

As the rats scurry to land afraid of water, YOU too will run for safety of the lands, but there will be no place to run, as it is said in the words of the GODS of the HEAVENS,”And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.”

It is written. 

In the beginning WE had made man. In the beginning WE had destroyed man by the floods above and below. WE made a promise to YOU WE would never flood the earth again. But now, in light of how YOU treat each other, WE have no choice but to bring the ends of the earth today, this hour, this time of forevermore.  

May GOD OF ETERNITY have mercy upon your souls – this is mankind’s final intervention. WE are the BLACK ANGELS – the GODS of the HEAVENS

Meaning and Reasoning

I was so troubled by the recent unforgivable deaths of defensive Syrian children who were gassed by chemical warfare, I had to write my feelings of despair. How is it possible one man can purposely murder his people and children ? 

I pleaded for the Russia government to take note of the poor children purposely murdered and hesitate to help this Syrian dictator anymore. Our children and grandchildren are what we live for, striving towards the betterment of mankind. In the end, we all want the same things, so why can’t we do it on a constructive peaceful way ?  

Why must we all go to war over religion, oil or land ? 

I believe we can be better for our children. I believe and trust our leaders will do their best to protect our children and grandchildren, by giving them a world of peace, a world to live in without fear, a world without famine or bloodshed and a world of freedom. 

In CANADA we are celebrating our 150th year and I’m so proud to be in country that promotes freedom of choice, freedom to care for our children in a safe environment, and to be able to work together as all Canadians, no matter our religion, race, colour or heritage. 

Most importantly we are Canadian first – We are all together working towards the betterment of mankind. 

So, please President Vladimir Putin, I pleaded for a better way to the future of all our children. I plead for your humanity of the human race. I also plead for all the powers of each country to come to a peaceful solution with President Putin. After all, we are human beings. All we have to do is to look inside ourselves and realize we humans are indeed a wonderful species, with the ability to change for the good.  

Let’s do it for our children. Let’s do it for all those children who have died for no reason. Lets do it for the Syrian children, fearing for their lives. Let’s do it in memory of my little Jenni Michelle Demers, who never had the chance to enjoy life, we all take for granted. 

I’m heartbroken – we are human beings – let’s strive for the betterment of humanity. PEACE

Dreaming Las Vegas

Vegas Reviews by Bari Demers
Today I have to share with you one of my strangest dreams, I like to call : DREAMING LAS VEGAS but before I do, I’ve just heard Don Rickles has passed away at age 90.  Last year I wrote a small article about him HERE.

One thing for sure, in this dream of mine, I’m certainly considered a Vegas Lover, to be dreaming such a bizarre storyline.  It’s a crazy dream, to be sure.  It also means I need to make another visit to Las Vegas.  

So here goes my dream : DREAMING LAS VEGAS

For some strange reason, in my dream, I’m “All By Myself” … as my mind picks up the original song by Eric Carmen

Lyrics

When I was young

I never needed anyone

And makin’ love was just for fun

Those days are gone

Livin’ alone

I think of all the friends I’ve known

But when I dial the telephone

Nobody’s home

All by myself

Don’t want to be, all by myself anymore

All by myself

Don’t want to live, all by myself anymore

Hard to be sure

Some times I feel so insecure

And love so distant and obscure

Remains the cure

(Celine Dion has sung this song many times and one of the times, was during her Las Vegas performance in 2016 after the passing of her husband. An emotionally time for dear Celine.) 

Here’s the video

 

Continue : 

I’m in a long luxurious black limo. The interior is lavishly decorated with all the bells and whistles you can think of. And get this, it even has a hot tub – go figure! I warned you it was a crazy dream 🙄. 

Arriving, my personal female driver kindly opens the door. Right away, as my hand touches hers, I noticing her long graceful soft hands with fashionable fingernails. Her nails were presented with a series of tasteful sparkles and a nice shade of dark pink. I remember the scent of her perfume instantly ; could tell right away it was an expensive Christian No. 1*

The reason is, my mom use to wear this kind of perfume on special occasions.  


Moving on : 

Getting out of the limo I noticed for the first time how beautiful my chauffeur was.  Her stunning green eyes sparkled a glimmering colour of emerald, through the light of the morning desert sun. Underneath the chauffeur style hat, her long brunette hair was tasteful tied into a ponytail.  Her smile was so captivating and innocent, it was if she caught me her web.

I was in love.  

“Mr Watts? Sir?” questioned Chris, ” Is everything alright?”

Snapping out of it, I smiled and said,” No…I mean yes …I mean …Thank you Chris.”  It then dawned on me, my first girlfriend’s name was Christine ( Chris for short ) ; maybe that’s why I was so captivated? 

Chris asked,” Will there be anything else Mr Watts?”  

In my dream, I thought, “That’s strange, she keeps calling me by the name of Watts.  My last name isn’t Watts,” I shrugged my shoulders and decided it really didn’t matter. I handed her a $20 tip and said,” No. Thank you.  Now remember to pick me up in five days. ”

She nodded and said,” Of course Sir, after all, I’m your personal chauffeur.”  

I thought for second, ” This is crazy, I can’t afford a personal driver?What does she mean? I’m not a rich movie star with my own personal entourage? ” Oh well…decided to go with it, shrugging my shoulders. 


Looking up at the lavish Vegas Resort, it features an architectural skyscraper with brilliant greyish-blue glass panels, as far as the eye can see. For some strange reason I have no idea the name of this 5 Star Resort, only that it was the best-of-the-best in Las Vegas. You know, the one celebrities and rich tycoons find favourable because of the luxurious service and expensive taste.

Heading into this upscale Vegas Resort, I was quickly greeted at the door by the GM of the Hotel. I thought, ” Whoa! Talk about service!” He reached out to shake my hand and said,” It a pleasure to see you again Mr Watts. I will personally take you to your room.” 

Again I thought,” My name isn’t Watts?! ” But whatever, I just go with it. 

We head over to the personal VIP elevator with only one button to press, featuring the Presidential Suite.

I’m thinking,” This is crazy, I can’t afford this?!” 

Reaching top floor, the golden doors of the elevator opened with a soft swish (just like the doors on Star Trek – go figure!) The GM showcases the lavish Egyptian-themed room featuring everything you can imagine, fit for any Pharaoh, Queen or King. Awestruck, I slowly walked towards the seven foot glass doors to the grand balcony overlooking the spectacular view of the Vegas Strip. The doors open automatically, peering over (looking way down), I could see the hustle and bustle of tourists, seemingly tiny as scurrying ants. 

You know that feeling when you first arrive in Vegas ? That satisfied feeling of awe and excitement, ready to take on-the-town? That’s how I felt. 

The GM said,” Your entourage will be here soon Mr Watts.”  

I nodded. Walking back in, it was then I noticed someone was putting my cloths away in the drawers from my one and only suitcase, thinking,” Boy my suitcase holds a lot of stuff.” It seemed endless, like a bottomless pit ! 

Then, just like that my dream took on another side.  

For some strange reason my room was filled with other people. I mean, like complete strangers. Like we were in a group of tourists, all doing the same tour. Some were busy emptying their luggage, as another would make a grand entrance by falling heavily on the bed next to mine. Beside my bed I noticed a stocked bar with my very own bartender. 

An attractive women beside me said,” Oh Wow! Aren’t you lucky! Your bed is the most lavish of them all.” 

The minute she said that I got that strange feeling I was indeed in the wrong room. This can’t be right? Not to embarrass myself, I quietly left the room. After all, I didn’t want these strangers to realize I was given a room I couldn’t possibly afford.  

It was then, I was on a mission to find my rightful room.  

Eventually I found the most strangest elevator, looking more of a circular laundry-shoot then an elevator. Trying to open this 18th century styled copper cylinder door, I quickly smelled something burning. You know, that electrical burning smell ? The door seemed stuck and it grind to a halt. Grabbing the door, I muscled my way in, fearing I’d miss my ride down. It’s then I realize there’s others in an adjacent elevator, beside me. As a matter of fact, it’s a series of cylinder elevators, on what seems like a roller coaster ride.  

Yes. That’s it, exactly like a roller coaster ride!

I hear one of the guys talking to his friend,” What the hell?! Why is this guy holding up the ride?” 

Below me I noticed the open grated floor, and underneath was this long endless track for a roller coaster. I was like,” Oh boy! What did I get myself into this time? I can’t stand rollercoaster rides!” Just like that I’m rushed down at supersonic speeds, heading into oblivion, like some Interstellar Spaceship. Suddenly I felt nauseated. Eyes wide open, I began to sweat with complete fear, as my fingers gripped the bars for dear life. 

Suddenly it was all over. 


I had reached the 8th Floor. Feeling light-headed my body staggered out of this peculiar elevator. Relieved to exit this time machine, my whole body felt like a ton-of-bricks. It’s like I just came back from a month aboard the ISS ( International Space Station), with me feeling like jello. 

I couldn’t seem to lift myself, as gravity took over. 

After some time of just laying there, in the middle of this Vegas Resort hallway, I finally managed to get up, edging myself against the wall (like a drunken sailer) trying to find my room. 

There it is ! Room 80000090 – Go figure ! 

I felt my pockets and there it was, a pass key. Sliding it into the door, the mechanic noise you’re so familiar with, opened the door. Staggering into this dark room, the drapes opened automatically.
It was an upgraded Vegas room overlooking a beautiful courtyard featuring an oasis of inviting pools. On one end of the 1200 sq ft room there was a stocked open-bar nestled into the corner. To the west wall was a grand Samsung 110-inch Ultra HDTV TV. In front we’re four leather Theatre lounging chairs. Along the east wall sat a dining room table, with a fully stocked kitchenette. 

Looking into the next room, it featured a huge King-sized bed with a pillow-top mattress, feather down comforter and Egyptian cotton linen. Just to my right, a marble-floor washroom showcased a glass enclosed shower, a modern deep bathtub, double sinks and a make-up side table.

I knew right then and there, I had reached the correct room.

Throwing myself onto the bed, I quickly crashed into a deep sleep. Opening my eyes I then realized it was all but a dream. 

But, oh boy, did it ever seem real! 

As a screenwriter, I just had to share this incredible dream of mine – I hope you enjoyed my crazy dream.  It clear I’m a Vegas Lover, subconsciously thinking of my next trip to wonderful wonderland Las Vegas.  This could possibly be made into a short film, I’m sure.
