I just published "The Godfather of Fisherman's Wharf!"

"The Godfather of Fisherman's Wharf!"


I have been trying to publish my Godfather's Biography for over a year through traditional means. Given that none of us are getting any younger, I decided to go with Amazon's Kindle Direct Publishing. Try as I might, I have already found a typo. Given that I did my absolute best on this project, I am not beating myself up about it. I hope you can all enjoy an incredible story!

The Godfather of Fisherman's Wharf was written to preserve, if even in a small way, the legacy and incredible stories of one of the American immigrant families that came to this country via Steam Ship around the 1900s. They arrived at a time when this country was just beginning to bloom, and was then hit with two world wars. They stepped up, served their country, and built lasting legacies here by hard work and grit. They paid their taxes and didn't ask for handouts. They didn't resort to a life of crime. They pulled up their sleeves and worked hard to build their own version of the "American Dream."

You can get the Kindle version of the book now and the paperback is being published very soon. Just keep checking back on my Amazon Author Page for availability.

The 2016 Presidential Election is a scam that has been bought and paid for by the Rothschilds

The U.S. Congress and the mainstream media is bought and paid for by the Rothschild's and their "Federal Reserve."  It is way more obvious now that this has continued as even the Supreme Court has ruled that "news" agencies can legally fabricate stories. And guess who appoints Supreme Court Judges? The President does. And while your looking around, how many times have the news agencies been married to people that work in key international positions in Congress?

With the Rothschild's running all but three of the World's central banks and worth an estimated $350 billion, how much freedom is there really in the world? And why aren't they on any of the "World's Richest People" lists? And in case you were wondering, the last couple of countries central banking systems that they have acquired are, Afghanistan, Syria, and Libya.

O wait, you recognize those names do you? Do you know who is next? Well the only three they don't own yet are, wait for it...... Iran, North Korea, and China. O and would you know who is supposedly firing off rockets and has nukes? You guessed it; Iran and North Korea. Want to know why China isn't on that list? Because they own us. They own the national debt, and guess who owns the Federal Reserve? Yes, the Rothschild's own it. And guess who owns the U.S. Congress? And guess who's military has now invaded the last three countries who's banking systems have been bought? And guess which countries are next? This isn't a conspiracy. This is fact. There is empirical data to support every word of it.

Try going to the Federal Reserve's website. It is a .gov website. But it is not government at all. It is privately held by a few families. The Rothschild's are the main family in the equation and they started banking in Germany around 1760. They have been designing the current world banking system for over 200 years. Last year alone the Fed. Reserve increased the total U.S. currency in circulation by %15. Wouldn't it be great to just print more cash at home when you wanted to be richer? Now are you surprised that the richest family in the world, is the one printing the money?

The real problem is that the system of brainwashing and apathy is working. The only way to send a message this year, is to not vote AT ALL for President. Even when you vote, there is corruption and they pick whomever they want anyway. If everyone boycotted the obvious bullshit political/banking system that now runs our government and world, then we will at least have a starting point. Of course ending the legal right to have corporations funding politics and writing laws that are passed by lifetime politicians, would help.
 
How does that saying go for recovery from addiction? Something like, 
"The first step is to admit that you have a problem." 
 
Pretty sure the second is, 
"Do something about it."
 
the Presidential Race is a Scam

Water Shortage in California?; Or, Depends on Who You Know?

Water Shortage;

 

Or, Depends on Who You Know?



Is there really a water shortage in California at the moment? I would say, no. There is only the diverting of extremely large percentages of the water to "For Profit" industries, combined with a genuine lack of rain over the last decade or more.

I just lived in Salinas Valley, Ca. for six months. I lived in the valley where it was so dangerous to even walk around my house, that I was almost jumped twice in three walks. Obviously I chose a different location for future strolls. But, my point is this, last year the Salinas Valley produce industry was worth 5 Billion dollars. That's Billion with a B. Miles and miles of green crops that look perfect in every way. Hundreds, if not thousands of Hispanic People of many nationalities are bent over in the fields every day of the week. They live in violent, crowded, under policed, dilapidated housing. This last Fourth of July was so crazy that military drones were flown over the city just to try and record and track the chaos. I spoke with one Salinas Police Officer the day after and I told him that even though I could see the police station from my apt., I only saw one or two police cars the entire night, and only as the went speeding by. He said "WTF did you expect us to do about it? The city was under siege."



My point is this, I drive out of bright green fields, through a few small cities to get to my Godfather Interviews. There are stalled housing developments, failed well sites, failed de-salination projects, and a general lack of water. Even the rich folks in Pebble Beach, Carmel, ect. are having to conserve. It seems only the industrial machine had enough money and or influence to control the water.

I have lived in California, Hawaii, Arizona, and Colorado recently, and in every state, water was a commodity. There are more and more regulations put on individuals whos water consumption is a fraction of the real demand. Are we seriously still bottling water for profit, while people are on water restrictions? And why are these corporations exploiting Native American Tribal Lands and resources in what is ultimately an exploitation of humanities finite resources?

Now that I live in Colorado, I am hearing about the severe drought in the late 1990s. The water people basically used mafia style tactics to control peoples water consumption. Then, when people started conserving water, they raised their rates to "Stay Afloat." Now that they are floating so well here that the Colorado River feeds every state that it touches, the same "Drought" has shown up, but the big fields are still green, while our lawns our brown.

I believe that the answer to this entire problem is micro-farming, and communal living. Don't depend on the big machines of economy anymore. The results are local peace and happiness. The communities fill up with happy, healthy people that don't strain the health care system in later life.  It literally lends itself to World Harmony!

No big plan, just grown your own food, talk to your neighbors, and don't be a dick. Simple.

Agent Needed for Pulitzer Prize Nominated Author Joe Holt

Author Joe Holt


Date: July 3rd 2015

Name: Joe Holt

eMail: AlohaJoeinHawaii@gmail.com

Phone: 1-808-895-2533

Occupation: Author / Speaker

Request: Agent Needed for Pulitzer Prize Nominated Author Joe Holt


Bio:
Joe Holt (aka Aloha Joe) was born in Santa Barbara, California in 1978. After living in orphanages, foster homes, adoptive homes, and a forced child labor camp, he signed to join the United States Marine Corps on his 17th birthday. After two enlistments in the Marines as an Aviation Electrical Engineer, he had attained the rank of Sergeant, had served two tours overseas, and had earned a National Defense Medal.

A combination of military and off-duty injuries led to his medical retirement at the age of 23. After two failed marriages, multiple near death experiences, learning to walk and talk properly again after being the victim of a hit and run, and VA medicine almost killing me, I moved to the Big Island of Hawaii to go on a walk about. I wrote about my daily thoughts and adventures while living in the tropical rain forest of Hawaii simply for the cathartic value of it. I realized after a year of writing that I had something that I wanted to share with my two sons. I didn't want to just hand them hand written notes, so I went about the task of self publishing a book. That process alone took me a year. During that time I self published my first book in 2013 entitled "Aloha Joe in Hawaii - A Guided Journey of Self Discovery and Hawaiian Adventure." It was published in kindle, epub, paperback, and I even hired a voice actor to do the audio book for iTunes. The paperback is a "Coffee Table Book" with 20 color photos of the Big Island included that I took during my first year there.



At my first author appearance and book signing on the Big Island, I was told that I was the first author to sell out at one of the stores events. I was also told that I had "It" and I have an ability to grab an audience and hold them spellbound. I was also approached by an editor and publisher Renee Robinson from "A Wealth of Wisdom, LLC." She asked if I was writing more and if she could publish it. I had been writing more and we set up a business relationship.

I had written what I thought was one book (in three days of an epic writing torrent) and sent it to her. Her and several proof readers all agreed that I had written two separate books, and the chapters were separated. You see, after having to heavily edit my first book due to it being made for my two young sons, I knew I needed to write another book that was a little more "Tell All." That gave rise to my second book "Stories I Can't Tell My Kids Yet." That book was published in 2014 and includes chapters like "Bacon Saved My Life" and "Craig's List, Paranoid Schizophrenia, Dating, and Why That's a Bad Combination."



The remaining chapters that I had written, plus a few that I wrote a few months later, became "Your Brain is the Key to the Universe: A Comprehensive Guide to Manifesting Your Ideal Reality and World Harmony." This book was just published two months ago and is now officially under consideration for a 2016 Pulitzer Prize in the General Non-Fiction category. Results will be available April 2016. The amazing thing about this book is that it is an "image of timely interest." Of the many things that I cover, gay marriage is one of them and the Supreme Court just legalized it for the entire United States.
The quote on the cover of this book is from an M.D. that I admire very much named Dr. Jacob Teitelbaum, who also happens to have published somewhere around ten books of his own. I first met him when I attended a five hour physics lecture at his "Pyramid House" in Kailua-Kona, Hawaii that was given by a 50 year physics researcher named Dr. Rauscher. I was in the process of editing and publishing this book at that time and he offered to read the book and give me some tips. After reading the book he said that he didn't really have any tips, but that he had a quote for the book. I put his quote on the cover because I thought it was amazing. "This book is an exploration of the unknowable cosmos, using the mind as a spaceship."


Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in 2015


The back cover photo of this book is me standing in front of Mauna Kea on the Big Island of Hawaii. Mauna Kea is currently at the epicenter of an indigenous peoples debate. There are many countries coming together to build the largest telescope in the world, all while disregarding the native peoples and their culture. I recently wrote a response to a U.C. Santa Cruz Professor's remarks regarding the Hawaiians trying to protect their sacred holy places, of which Mauna Kea is one of the most sacred temples on any Hawaiian Island.

{I am going to try and have a sit down meeting with Michael Bolte. As someone that is from California, who just spent the last 2 1/2 years living on the Big Island of Hawaii learning about Pono Aini, I can say that this Professor needs a history lesson.
"Look, we made a lot of adjustments in how we do business there," Michael Bolte, a professor of astronomy and astrophysics at the University of California at Santa Cruz and one of the main U.S. organizers for the TMT, told BuzzFeed in April. "But there are zero legal barriers here. Someone standing in front of your bulldozer is not a legal issue."
Are you out of your mind Prof. Bolte? You call an illegal overthrow of the Native Hawaiian Kingdom in 1898 "Not a Legal Issue?" Marines were brought to the Islands to annex the Hawaii Kingdom into the United States. This was done against the Hawaiians will and was perpetrated by rich plantation owners. President Bill Clinton was the first President to publicly admit this mistake, which then proved that the U.S. Gov. is aware of its illegal occupation of the Hawaiian Islands.

Not only is the U.S. military illegally occupying the Hawaiian Islands, they have also tricked Native Hawaiians into joining the illegal "Hawaii State Police" presence and have now forced these Uncles and Aunties into positions where they are the ones arresting their own Ohana on Mauna Kea. How cruel of an injustice this is to perpetrate on a people! I am learning now that it is the Department of Land and Natural Resources that is making the arrests, but the point is the same.

Now, many nations have come together to build another telescope on Mauna Kea, one of the most sacred sights on the entire Big Island of Hawaii. And this Professor from over 2,500 miles away can't understand how Native Hawaiians, on Hawaiian soil, protecting a sacred site with their own bodies against his bulldozers, could be a legal issue. If I was the Dean at the University of California at Santa Cruz, I would seriously consider terminating this mans employment due to his encouraging human rights violations, terroristic threatening, and acts of war against another country.
Is it important to build telescopes? I would say yes. Is it important to advance our understanding of our universe? Again, I would say yes. Is it worth advancing technology and science to understand what is "out there" while completely disregarding an entire country and native peoples? Emphatically, No! Aole. Now. And pack your things and beg forgiveness as you move off Mauna Kea. Kiss every rock on the way down begging forgiveness from the Aina and the Goddess Madame Pele. If you are lucky and can make it to Pu'uhonua o H┼Źnaunau, they might let you live. Even our World Court at the United Nations frowns on Human Rights Violations though.}

I am currently writing my Godfather's Anthony Frank Lucido's Biography here in Monterey, California. He went to school with my Grandfather in the 1950s in Monterey. My grandfather went off to Vietnam and my Godfather started working on Fisherman's Wharf. He has been on the wharf now for almost 60 years straight.
 


I have spent the last three months with him and his parents conducting video interviews and publishing them on YouTube under the working title "The Godfather of Fisherman's Wharf." His parent's are 92 and 94 and have been married 72 years. His father was Army Air Corps during WW2. The stories from the three of them are amazing and endless. I am currently in the writing phase as the interviews have been completed. I have plans to create a documentary as well for this project which includes filming on Cannery Row, Fisherman's Wharf in Monterey, and then a trip to Sicily to visit all of his family there. I am currently seeking funding to start the film. I am also going to need an editor and publishing house for this book.


 
I have a fifth book in the works that is an epic novel about my own mis-adventures.

I was published in the Ke-Ola Magazine on the Big Island of Hawaii as a "Featured Author" June-July 2013 for "Aloha Joe in Hawaii."

I have had two author appearances at "Kona Stories Book Store" in Kailua-Kona Hawaii.

I have an author appearance pending at "Luminata Books" in Monterey, California.
I am also starting a wholeness retreat in Ventura, Ca. in October 2015 as a Life Coach and "Renewal of Self" expert with "Second Wind Day Spa."

I have multiple websites, blogs, ect. online to promote myself.




I also have two Facebook pages, Twitter, About Me, LinkedIn, GooglePlus, Amazon Author Pages, Goodreads, Shelfari, iTunes Audio Book, and more. I am constantly searching for new ways to reach an ever expanding global market. I currently have buisness agreements with Amazon in thirteen different world currencies.

I Have Childhood PTSD From Being Raped in a Forced Child Labor Camp.

I Have Childhood PTSD From Being Raped in a Forced Child Labor Camp.

#childhoodptsd #baddreamstonight #rapevictim

I just realized that I have been laying here crying and staring at the wall for the last few hours and was not really asleep, nor was I present in my body. I spoke with my 11 year old son earlier and tonight when I feel asleep, I dreamt about when I was 9 -11 years old. I was in a forced child labor camp and was being raped and abused by a particular staff member for a couple of years.

As an adult I was given a collection of photos from the time I was at that camp and about half the photos are me peeking out from a shower curtain, or peeking out from under a blanket, all just before or after being raped by the man who was taking the photos. Tonight in my nightmare, I was flipping through the photos and was reliving each flashbulb memory. I haven't had any bad dreams in a long time but this time I allowed myself to cry and feel the pain and try and let it go. I sure hope it works this time.

The mind is a tricky thing. Here are things that happened to me 25 years ago and my mind is playing them for me in a way they seem to be happening again, right now. I know that I am safe. I know that I am an adult. I damn sure thought I had worked through all of this. The reason that I am sharing this publicly is that since I wrote "Stories I Can't Tell My Kids Yet" and wrote the chapter about what happened to me at Camp Tracey Children's Home, people have contacted me with their own stories. Some are looking for guidance, while others just want to say it out loud to let it go.

For the record, no I don't have it figured out. Most days it doesn't even enter my mind. When it does, it hurts. The difference is now that I understand that none of what happened to me was my fault, and that I am no longer powerless, I can let the negative energy go. I also don't look at these flash backs as negative things. I believe they are just residual stored energy that is working its way out of my body. You see, my polarity has shifted from negative energy, to positive energy and all of this negativity has to go. Random dogs are drawn to walk up next to me and lay down. Children laugh in delight and stare when I walk by. Random wild birds land next to me and start singing away, like scrub jays, and hawks. I am not the scared little boy I used to be. I am a beautiful soul. The pedophile may have taken away my innocence, but he can't take my inner beauty. I will be the light so that I will never again be consumed by the darkness. Fiat Lux.

-Good Luck Out There!
