Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: March 3, 2018 (Stream + Tracklist): Lemonhead vs. The Cheetolini!

Bad Vlad Putin or as I call him affectionately – Lemonhead

<World War III – soon come? 54 sec.>

Greetings,

My first semester at college – Montana State, Fall 1983:

  1. Soviet Union shot down a Korean jet liner
  2. Beirut bombing of US army barracks killing hundreds
  3. America invaded Grenada

It looked like the Cold War was getting “thawed”. Yet, by the time I graduated from the University of Utah in 1989, the wall had fallen and the Cold War was over.

Not so fast….

Wheel it forward to 2016. Trump defeats Hillary. How could that have happened? Let’s blame the Russians. Add in Syria and Ukraine, the recent aggressive update of our Nuclear Response Review. And 1 Trillion in nuclear “improvements.” Mueller’s investigation and innuendo against Russian “hacking”.

Rachel Maddow might call me Ivan, but the reality is:

Rachel Maddow – peddling war for higher ratings

Russia, no longer the Soviet Union, is feeling the strain of a new Cold War. Their incumbent President, Vladimir Putin, has an election of his own next week. His State of the Nation was a warning to America  and its allies.

I no longer do Radioactive political interviews on KRCL  but I still follow the news. I am worried a confrontation in the Syrian Panhandle could lead to World War III.

See that splotch of Green in the Northeast. That is where World War III could start

Of course, my antennae is attuned to Reggae as prophecy. I played a Justin Hinds song on this Smile Jamaica Ark-Ive edition that brought me right back to Sept. 1983.

So until the bombs drop, enjoy this March edition of Smile Jamaica. Forward ever, backwards never. War Time is over!

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-tober 14, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): Anti-Trump Deep State & UFO Conspiri-facts!

<Government UFO confirmation leaks; 2 min. 11 sec.>

Greetings,

Listen to the above clip on the crumbling UFO conspiracy wall….

I knew Donald Trump was going to be President….

I Praise Anu every Friday with my buddies Aquaboy and Mike. Bourbon, music and political/musical discussions.

My Anunnaki ancestors enjoyed partaking of the Tree of Lie

When I said Trump was gonna beat Hillary “bigly”, my mates looked at me and said, “Too much Space Dust has made you delusional.”

I wasn’t convinced. I said: As soon as Hillary called Trump supporters “Deplorable” she was toast. Same with Romney in 2012 when he said 47% of Americans are deadbeats.

After the Revenge of the Deplorables….I made another Friday prediction:

I was Deplorable before it was cool

The Deep State wouldn’t accept an outsider/game show host like The Cheetolini as legit.

Sure enough: Fake News, Russian “hacking”, Hillary whining and leaks out of the government on all fronts.

My prediction: Government would leak in two areas to embarrass Trump

  1. UFO’s
  2. JFK

The first half of my prediction just came true:

From “real news” Huffington Post*

<UFOria – Gov’t admits it! – No more scoffing!>

Fmr. Manager of DOD Aerospace Threat Program: “UFOs are Real”

*98.2% sure Hlilary would win

Something extraordinary was revealed today. Former high-level officials and scientists with deep black experience who have always remained in the shadows came forward on one platform. These insiders have long-standing connections to government agencies which may have programs investigating unidentifed aerial phenomena (UAP/UFOs).

Next stop on the Trump Derangement Express:

Who killed JFK? (If you put Governor John Connally in an elevated jump seat between the driver and the Kennedy’s sitting lower in the passenger seat, Oswald’s shooting lines up.) Sorry to disappoint!

bless, Bobbylon

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives (Stream + Tracklist): Jah-gust 12, 2017 – World War 3.0: The Ultimate Bad Hair Day!

<World War 3.0..; 16 sec..>

<…started by 2 guys with bad hair; 51 sec.>

Greetings,

Man am I exhausted by the divisiveness in this country and the world. Seems like we’re lurching to mass destruction through hatred and mean spiritedness. War is the first bag out of the club. Threats of war, sanctions, all negativity for surety.

What can we do? What comes first: Civil War in America or World War 3.0 in East Asia.

Reggae prophesied what happens  when nations result to wars and rumors of wars.

Wish I had something more encouraging to report. But I don’t. So let’s hope we can cool down the pace and get along in the rat race

Have no fear for atomic energy
‘Cause none of them can stop the time

-Bob Marley : Redmeption Song

58908209c461881e4f8b463d
Jan. 20th, 2017 — day Trump was installed — UFO sighting from NASA’s video feed. None dare call it swamp gas! NASA panicked and cut the video feed. Do not scoff!

Greetings,

First week of President Trump. Baaah, don’t want to talk about it. 2016 Presidential Election: Ebola vs. Bubonic Plague. Gonna be a brutal four years. At least we have Reggae Music to remind us. Bobbylon Chants down Babylon!

Jamaican saying: Same thing for breakfast, same thing for tea:

Keith Poppin

What I find interesting? As a conspiracist, Trump’s election signaled the collapse of the Deep State: Neoliberal politics, irregardless of Political Party, enforced through Neocon Foreign Policy.

Bush gave us Afghanistan and Iraq 2.0. Obama wrecked Libya, Syria, Iraq 3.0, Yemen and Ukraine on his watch. How a Nobel Peace Prize winner got Cold War 2.0 off the ground with Russia is quite the feat of Deep State gymnastics!

Our first black President droned so many brown Middle Easterners that he literally ran out of bombs his last year in office! WTF?

yes-we-can-obama-drone-memes-7
In 2008 I compared this guy to Bob Marley. But that was five wars ago

Joe Sixpack and Sally Housecoat basically went outside the duopoly of Republicrats vs. Democans. Shockwaves throughout the MIC/SIC and bankster class.

So if that rigid system is in tatters, there is no clandestine force to keep us in the dark about Extraterrestrials.

First we had the incredible footage captured by the Chilean Navy: 9 plus minutes of Infrared camera action on a UFO. No effing swamp gas, or ball lightning or bumbaclaat weather balloons.

Chilean Naval UFO incident

Just while we were processing that compelling visitation (other than Huff Post, mostly a news embargo on the story), now NASA captured video footage of another UFO “probe” (pun intended). 21 sec.

Smile Jamaica’s fave “fake news” site: RT – UFO stylee

unnamed
I call bullshit, NASA! Quit peddling fake news that Aliens aren’t real

What does any of this have to do with last week’s Ark-Ive of Smile Jamaica. Absolutely nothing!

But I am hoping for more encounters as the shit-stem (as Peter Tosh says) continues to crumble.  UFO sightings will lead to a full on Columbus style emergence to fill the political gap Trump’s howling Presidency has brought about.

Let us hope the Anunnaki (those who came from the sky) treat us better than Columbus did the Native Arawak and Caribs and Africans enslaved in the Middle Passage.

Not that we would deserve their mercy.

Forward ever backwards never!

Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-nuary 14, 2017 (Stream + Tracklist): I told you UFO’s exist!

ufo-memes

Greetings,,

2017 is already off to a wacky start. President Donny Tiny Hands isn’t weird and wild enough, looks like the break down of the Deep State have emboldened Aliens to start revealing themselves to us.

The Chilean Navy captured a UFO with 10 minutes of compelling footage using infrared cameras.

Watch this and it becomes clear. It isn’t swamp gas, or light refraction or ball lightning, weather balloons.

Although the weaksauce debunkers are already claiming it was a plane. Trust your eyes.

<Extraterrestrials 1, Swamp Gas 0; 50 sec.>

As if UFO’s aren’t enough, we get President Trump today (Jan. 20). As a Progressive, I have offered my humble services to our new President in a way that one of my Reggae idols Prince Buster did to Jamaica in the 60’s.

I volunteer to be Trump’s Minister of Ganja & Space Exploration; 44 sec.

I can advise our President why they are here….

Chilean Naval UFO – Do Not Scoff! UFO-ria

9cd93c1b106ec23e26b5ba5b3701c04be879cd922942ca35b142f2885fd8bd91

Greetings,

I was called a “tin foil hatter” when I told my Liberal friends that Donald Trump would thump Hillary Clinton. And he did. (I voted for Stein btw)

tinfoil-hat
“Vladimir Putin cost Hillary Clinton the election”

Because of the cross over of fake news*, conspiracy theories – Bin Laden on the grassy knoll! and the belief in Ancient Aliens….

*I only read news sources that the corporate media like Wa Poo and the Clinton News Network call fake news. I have called the hairy eyeball on the past 8 years as a Progressive. So I do not trust print media nor cable news.

The Space Dust was never illegal on Nibiru, you earthbums!

Now my UFOria fixation has proven to be well placed in similar ways to my prediction of the impossible – Trump beating Clinton.

Just like I knew that Hillary wasn’t 12 points ahead of The Donald in October, neither is this UFO swamp gas, weather balloons or ball lightning that scoffers use to deny the existence of UFO’s

Maybe Trump in the White House is gonna bring Aliens into world view. Why not,

Let’s Go Out With a Bang!

bless, robt

  • Look to the skies!
  • They exist!
  • Do not scoff!
  • UFO-ria!

Make America Green again

Greetings,

First re-cap after the election. I have been voting since 1984 and I can’t imagine two worse choices for President than what we got this go round: A greedy, law flaunting incompetent who helped ruin the other states in the Middle East George W didn’t destroy  versus a human Cheeto reality host. Ick.

The only good that came out of this election was this Nation dubbled the number of States that can re-assert mankind’s 8000 year connection to Jah’s wisdom weed. Three other states (including my homeland – Montana) approved Medical Marijuana.

A greener America: Marijuana’s big statement in Election 2016

Legalized: Collie-fornya, Jah-vada, Jah-suchusetts, Maine. (Arizona failed)

Medical MJ: Jah-rkansas, Jah-rida, Jah-tana, North Jah-kota

Jah-chigan’s legalization bid was yanked by an activist judge.

20% of this Nation now have benefitted from cannabis now.

  • In 2013 – 2 down, 48 to go!
  • In 2015 – 4 down, 46 to go!
  • In 2017 – 8 down, 42 to go!
  • In 2019 – ???

Maybe Obama will use an Executive Order and just legalize it everywhere. Finally some “Hope” for “Change” as he is packing up and moving out of the White House.

bless, robt
