Smile Jamaica Ark-Ives: Jah-ly 21, 2018 (Podcast & Playlist): Happy Birthday Haile Selassie!

Livicated to the World’s First Hippie

<Happy Birthday to the World’s First Hippie – Haile Selassie I>  68 sec.

Greetings,

  • Ras Tafari Makonnen: The Head Creator
  • Haile Selassie I: Power of the Trinity

<Power of Jah Trinity; 27 sec.>

  • Negusa Negast: King of Kings; 30 sec.
  • Lord of Lords, Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah. Elect of God, Ever Living God, Earth’s Rightful Ruler

<Conquering Lion of the Tribe of Judah; 13 sec.>

Without this little short man (Selassie was 5 foot 2) Reggae consists of love songs, novelty records and pop and soul covers. This is the heart of Smile Jamaica.

Rastafari gospel love songs to His Imperial Majesty from the Rastas. In Jamaican, when Nationalist hero Marcus Garvey was recruiting blacks to return to Africa, he prophesized: “Look to the east where a black king will be crowned. That will be the signal to load up the Black Star Liner (as opposed to the Titanic passenger liner White Star Line) to go back to Africa

<Garvey’s prophecy; 63 sec.>

Marcus Garvey: Look to the East, where a king will be crowned leading all blacks back to Africa

From that moment the movement grew from the impoverished in Jamaica who wanted a black Jesus not a colonial white Jesus. Selassie was the reincarnation of Jahova (Jah).

He ruled in Ethiopia until the communists in the hinterlands took advantage of corrupt Selassie courtiers who refused to acknowledge famine in the provinces. Selassie was deposed and most likely murdered in the basement of his Imperial Palace in 1974.

<Selassie’s downfall; 30 sec.>

I call myself a Rasta enthusiast or empathizer and even a Sumerian Fundamentalist like myself, is powerfully moved by such beautiful musical devotion that we will hear on this Ark-Ive Podcast.

Haile Selassie – July 23, 1892.

bless, Bobbylon

I’m a momma’s boy. Oldest kid. Every Sunday I get up, rise and shine, put the coffee on and around 9:30 either I call Mom or she calls me.

After 45 years of juggling the books in Fort Benton Montana’s High School, her and my dad are becoming Sunbirds in Sun City West, AZ.

So let’s celebrate that maternal goodness with a Smile Jamaica’s Mothers Day. Even better. Let’s make it all vinyl.

Is It the End? Asteroid Attack: 4/19/2017

Greetings,

Massive Asteroid set to Attack Earth

Self-described ‘expert’ Dr Dyomin Damir Zakharovich believes the asteroid will have the impact of a huge atomic weapon, boiling the seas and causing catastrophic tsunamis.

Hot take: “NASA is lying through its teeth”

The irony is delicious.

Our taxes are due today. Yet a massive asteroid is poised to strike the planet tomorrow on the 19th. So no 4/20, 420, 4:20 for the weedsters.

Reggae singjay, Sister Carol, talks about how space travel is an offense to Jah. How dare mankind trod upon Jah’s Heavenly abode? Learn from her cautionary lyrics…

Trusted news source, The Sun, tells us what the fake news/corporate media continues to lie about

<Corporate media on imminent Asteroid attack; 86 sec.>

Jahdgement Day soon come for arrogant mankind trodding pon Jah’s domain

When will asteroids hit Earth. Not if

And don’t get me started on NASA. Those charlatans have been lying to us since the bogus moon landing

Apollo 11 Moon Landing fraud

Apollo 11 bullshit

NASA says there is nothing to worry about, “near miss”, they say. I don’t believe them anymore than I believed the Presstitutes that told us Hillary Clinton had a 98.3%  chance of winning the Presidency against the Cheetolini. Liar, liar pantsuit on fire

“You’ve got fake news in my alternative facts!”

***

All our space endeavors are meant for one thing. Planetary defense against Alien vengeance. Ronald Reagan created the Strategic Defense Initiative not to stop Putin’s KGB, but wanted to give the technology to the Soviet Union to coordinate Earth defenses alongside the Americans.

False Flag Alien Attack

So my advice?

  • Kiss your kids, call your parents, tell them you love them
  • Don’t pay your VISA bill yet
  • Say a prayer to the Skygod of your choosing
Praise Anu! Please guide the planet killing Asteroid away from Earth

Ask the dinosaurs how their “near miss” with an Asteroid worked out for them.

bless, robt
