Today marks the anniversary of something I celebrate every year on this date. It is the fourth anniversary of a mission in which someone reached freedom and independence.
In a daring escape from deep within the territory of international terrorists and Sharia Law stronghold, one young lady enslaved by a patriarchic society braved the enduring breakout to reach freedom in another country thousands of miles from her homeland.
At this precise moment in time, 1806 hours, on 8 August 2014, the Eagle landed in the United States of America. She was liberated from the evil forces that had enslaved her since birth. She had dreamed of such liberty as a little girl. As she laid her head on her pillow in her bedroom, a sea breeze was gently blowing against the curtains through her open window. She dreamed of a hearing the rolling thunder of the rotor blades of U.S. helicopters chopping through the sky coming to rescue her. She never let go of that dream. It was well more than a decade she suffered. By her mid-teens, she endured torture and was persecuted because she rejected an ideology that enslaved her and stripped her of her life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. As she matured into a young woman, the threats against her increased. Then, four years ago today, aboard the Eagle, she touched down on the soil of freedom and independence. She had reached the land of the free and the home of the brave, safely. Guardian angels would forever more protect her from the forces of evil like no other protection could.
Coming within hours of imminent mutilation, torture, and a slow and barbaric execution, she was extracted from harm’s way. After more than forty-hours of an enduring flight with an initial flight path directly over hostile combat fields and urban fighting between Daesh (ISIS) terrorists and Iraqi warriors, where missile downing was imminently possible, the eyes of the angles guided her onward from harm’s way to safe harbor. Three planes had recently been downed by missiles and other hostilities, at least two of them full of civilians. It was a nerve-wracking journey with harrowing episodes every moment of the way. Trying times. Danger. Setbacks. Excitement. Fatigue. Anxiety. But at last, the Eagle made safe passage into the skies of freedom and independence, the skies of the United States of America, where the eagles soar high in the eyes of liberty and the face of justice.
Today, at 1806 hours, victory calls for a renewed celebration. Beer and pizza! It’s an annual ritual.
There is another cause for celebration. As we leave the Freedom and Independence Month of July where we celebrate all month long the 4th of July and the freedom and independence movement of our humanitarianism mission we find ourselves still celebrating and extend the feast a few days more into the 8th of August with this day being every part of the celebrating. (Then it is back on strict, strict, dieting. Fasting and Ungh!)But there is more…
Soon to be released will be the Freedom and Independence series of books, the 4th of July and Beyond,is part of that series, explaining our movement, our operations, and missions, worldwide.
My great friend, Cristina, another survivor of evil forces, just celebrated with me and friends, our LEO birthdays, on the delayed 31st of July. Both of our birthdays were in the last week of July, four days apart. We also celebrated the launching of Sunrise Mountain Publishing with friends and the publishing of Book 3 in the series. Book 1 has since also been released and Book 2 is within hours from release. Two other books will follow those releases soon. As we celebrated multiple occasions, we enjoyed Mediterranean Cuisine at Shsish Kabob House on West Flamingo Road having an enjoyable meal with a pleasant waitress from Bulgaria.
Just a few days ahead of today’s 4th anniversary, the Clifford G. Harrison DIY Library, released Book 1 three days early of schedule. The Secret Weapons, Book 1 in the Revolutionary Eradication Systems series, A Standalone Introduction SHOPTALK Edition Book 1: Just Bugs & Social Problems.

The Lebanese newspaper, The Daily Star will report in tomorrow’s newspaper, 1 June 2016, that new data shows slavery in the world is up 10 million people, from 35.8 to a new figure of 45.8 million.
The Daily Star, Lebanon
World Slavery Up Ten Million People
India, China and Pakistan are listed as the nations with the greatest slavemasters. Nearly 46 million people are enslaved in this world, folks. That is an awful lot of crime, an awful lot of evil. That’s 23.8 million people enslaved in just those three countries alone. Half of the world’s total slave population.
We must get aggressive against slavery. We cannot call ourselves a civilized world when nearly 50 million people are enslaved. This counting is most likely on the low side. It factors in known slave operations and estimates. But who sees the slaves that are shut into a private home’s basement and underground businesses, the sex slaves? Who counts the millions of slaves of Sharia Law in the land they call their archaic political ideology a religion when the millions of females of Islam are in virtual slavery?
The Global Slavery Index
Global Slavery Index
London & Perth, 31 May 2016 — An estimated 45.8 million men, women and children around the world are today trapped in modern slavery – 28% more than previously estimated. They are enslaved through human trafficking, forced labour, debt bondage, forced or servile marriage or commercial sexual exploitation. This is revealed in the 2016 Global Slavery Index, the flagship research report published today by the Walk Free Foundation. ~The Global Slavery Index

Fortunately there are some people with humanity
After the Protection Against Violence Act of 2016 was passed in February of this year, I started to write a post commending The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan and others for their hard work in this vitally important human rights legislation in a nation that just today, claims to take third place in world slavery. I got side tracked pushing a deadline-late eBook toward publication. Todays news gives me a moment to combine the two related pieces of news from Pakistan. If the 2016 Act had remained untouched, it would have been a giant leap forward to human rights in the Middle Easts among Muslim households. There was still a long way to go, but this reversed before most of the world was aware it even existed. It is distraughting to see such an important piece of legislation be reversed and diluted by gang of archaic men who refuse to come into the civilization of the 21 Century. One has to wonder what the term “lightly” will hold and how many Pakistan women will feel the harsh end of a “light” beating?
We are in the season of Pisces. 19 February to 20 March. I am not a Pisces, I am a Leo. I am a follower of Astrology and Horoscopes. Some think it is superstition. The fact is the stars and the universe for some mysterious reason influence our lives. The planets align or disarrange and it affects us directly. Sometimes. The position in the sky, in the universe, of the stars, the Moon, the Sun and the other planets affect us according to astrology. Sometimes. Sometimes the astrologers are all wet. Sometimes they are right on. Sometimes they fool us. Sometimes they surprise up. Sometimes they make us smile. And smiling is a good thing. Sometimes.
Astrology is therefore, the study of planets and human behavior. Some think astrology is pure hogwash. Superstition. Witchcraft. Nonsense. Like God and the Easter Bunny, no one has been able to prove one way or the other the believers are wrong… or right. Still there are believers among us. Just like The Big Bang Theory, they are all just theories. But many of us are serious theorists. It is speculation. There are investors. Speculators. Gamblers. And there is luck. Some are winners, some are losers. Some win big, some lose big. Some win it all and some win nothing at all. Where we align ourselves in our thinking is totally relevant only to our own piece of mind. It has absolutely no bearing on others. None.
A civil relationship in which one person has absolute power over the life, fortune, and liberty of another. ~ The Free Dictionary.com
I like astrology. If for nothing more, it is entertaining. It’s fun. I like seeing how close the astrologer’s prediction comes. Sometimes they are right on. Sometimes they are way off. It’s like the roll of the dice, you can’t win them all. The fact the dice lands with a seven means absolutely nothing at all. What matters is how you made your bet and where you placed it. If your bet aligns with seven you win. If it doesn’t, you lose.
Astrology can be inspiration. If nothing more it can motivate you to work harder toward your own achievements. It can be like a cheerleader when you have no one to cheer you on. It can be like an inner voice whispering, “Yes, you can do it. Don’t listen to the nay sayers, listen to your Inner Voice.” That voice will repeat, “Do it! Just get it done! You can! You can do it! Now get going, take baby steps, get started, break your tasks down to little manageable tasks like Mark Twain said and get started on the first one. Get it done!” That’s what astrology can do for you. It can motivate and inspire. It can massage your mind and spit some steroids into your soul, like ether into the intake of a cold diesel engine that won’t start. It can put bounce in your heels. Give you drive and self-esteem. It can repair your cells and mend your DNA after the virus of a negative creature sprayed urine and scattered feces all over your picnic, your pet projects, your creations, your hopes and your dreams. Bastards!
You can renew yourself with astrology. Overhaul your broken heart. Restore your faith. Patch-up your shattered life. Rebuild what others have broken. Smashed. Nearly destroyed. Keyword, nearly. Yes, it’s all in the mind, but Henry Ford said if you think you can, you will and if you think you can’t, you won’t. Or something like that.
My daddy used to tell me when I was a boy, just before he died, “You are not a failure until you stop trying to succeed.” I always had people telling me I couldn’t do it. I always had people putting me down. I always had people bullying me around. I couldn’t achieve anything. I always came out the loser. I had the worst luck in the world. The light at the end of the tunnel was a fast-moving freight train. I had about as much luck as a horse in an Alpo can. Every time I found a four-leaf clover some damn goat ate it. The rabbit foot someone gave me for good luck the cat ate. But my daddy, my family and a few friendly souls that have come and passed in this life and my life, since, encouraged me on. I was a fighter. I learned to stand my ground and to fight for those who couldn’t, for whatever reason, defend themselves. I learned to think I can instead of listening to the losers who were calling me a loser. I learned to heal the hurt from the inside out, rather than the outside in where it never heals. And sometimes I failed. I failed miserably. I failed, but I was not a failure. I was not a failure because I never stopped trying to succeed. And horoscopes was one source of motivation and inspiration when I had no other. When I stood alone in the shadows of a blood bath and watched evil rise and swallow everything that was righteous. Just like that.
I generally prefer female astrologers. Over the years they have been consistently more accurate than males, at least in my experience and monitoring… and relating to my horoscope, the sign of the Lion, the 5th sign of the Zodiac. For years one of my favorite astrologers has been Rob Brezsny. He rivals my female favorites with consistently accurate predictions in my experience. You can find him in the Las Vegas Weekly near the back page. He’s been there for years.
“If you are not free, then you are a slave. Period!” ~Cliff Harrison
As I stated, Pisces is not my sign, Leo is. Pisces is the 12th sign of the Zodiac. Pisces is the sign of someone I know. Actually, Pisces is the sign of the Zodiac of several people I know, among them many friends, mostly female.
Among those friends is a freed female slave. A victor of freedom and independence. Slavery is being thirsty and being forced to suck on the sponge soaked in vinegar. The sweet taste of victory comes from witnessing a liberated Eagle being released from her captives and watching her spread her wings wide and lift into the skies of freedom and independence where she soars high. That’s victory. There is no sweeter taste than seeing freedom soar.
“Whenever a person is unwillingly controlled by another, be that by an individual, group, organization or government, then some form of slavery exists.” ~Cliff Harrison
A while back as I was commencing on a major declutter project in a seriously cluttered environment I came across a sheet torn from the horoscope page of some time ago. I had saved the entire page, but it was the Pisces horoscope that gave reason to save it. Ironically it corresponds with my previous post. I stumbled on this page once again and it stimulated the idea to write and publish this piece.
“Slavery is illegal everywhere and yet there are more slaves now that at any other time in history…” ~ Rob Brezsny
When zodiacal interpretations prove to come true it weighs meaning to the astrologer who predicted the forecast. It is nothing offensive to religion, Christianity or otherwise, as some proclaim. If you believe in God, then you must believe God created the universe and God rules the universe and guides its course. If you are secular, then there is no argument.
Some will. Some won’t. Somewhere some do.

Quotes and excerpts from FREEDOM & INDEPENDENCE by Clifford G. Harrison a soon to be released publication from Sunrise Mountain Publishing at Amazon.com/Kindle
“Just as society misses true figures on counting anything, such as the real number of homeless, the number of hungry, the number of poor, unemployed, needy, undereducated, it misses the true number of slaves in the world. I use one test and that test is will or willingness. Rather one is willingly consenting, volunteering or rather one is forced and dominated against their will into a particular situation, style and mode of life. Sharia Law, for example, enslaves millions of females, as does communism and often all such patriarchy. In both cases some females are willing participants, they are not slaves. In other cases many females are not willingly participating and are therefore forced by absolute power and control over their own liberty and destiny or the denying of them and they are therefore, indeed slaves.” ~Cliff Harrison
“All persons have the absolute right, the inalienable right, to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness which is to follow their own chosen dreams, to wear the clothes they desire to wear, to live and work and play according to the way they want to live, work and play without the say of anyone else. If they are unable to do this, freely and independently, then they are in someway enslaved to another. Except for minor children and convicted prisoners all persons are entitled to freedom and independence, free of tyranny, suppression or domination of any kind, including religious, political, social or criminal ideology. And, that ought to be an International Human Rights law enforced by the mightiest powers of the world.” ~Cliff Harrison
