I repost this article, today being the day on which Pearl Harbor is remembered. I often hear people ask whether Franklin Roosevelt knew the Pearl Harbor attack was coming. Well, why not ask FDR himself that question?
Round about this time (Sept. 11) every year, 9/11 becomes known as the “New Pearl Harbor.” Pearl Harbor is seen as the event that brought America into the war. And it was.
But a few people also believe that Franklin D. Roosevelt actually connived to allow the Japanese to bomb Pearl Harbor in order to bring America into that war.
Well, did he?
Why not ask him?
If we listen to Sananda regularly, Matthew Ward, and Montague Keen, why not listen to FDR?
In fact, Robert Leichtman did exactly that back in the summer of 1980. Robert called on medium Paul Winters to allow FDR to speak through him. The session was actually a tag-on to his interview with Winston Churchill. (1)
Leichtman had just asked Churchill: “Let me ask about another prominent individual you worked with, our American President at that time, Franklin Roosevelt” when Churchill responded, “He’s here with me today, in fact. Would you like to talk with him?”
Leichtman responded, “Of course. We’d be honored” and Churchill said, “Then I will defer to my good friend on the left here.” This conversation with Roosevelt then ensued.
Roosevelt: “So you’ve had to sit here and listen to the old goat dissertate for a couple of hours on all of his worldly wisdom, huh?” [Laughter.]
Leichtman: “Dearly so.”
R: “That’s fine. I love to listen myself.”
L: “I understand you both love to talk but neither one of you cared to listen all that much.” [Laughter]
R: “That’s right.” …
I’ll just give what Roosevelt had to say about Pearl Harbor.
L: “Well, now that you’re here, let me ask you a few questions. What had you hoped for as the outcome of World War II?”
R: “Of course, we really didn’t want to get into that war in the first place. But after Pearl Harbor, we had to.”
L: “In retrospect, wasn’t it absolutely essential?”
R: “Yes. Of course, there have been many theories advanced about why this and that happened; some people believe I secretly called up the Japanese and told them to bomb Pearl Harbor so we could get into the war.”
L [sarcastically]: “You mean you didn’t?”
R: “No, I did not. And there are those who say the war was created to pull us out of the economic nightmare of the Depression, and that is not true either. Our unwillingness to enter the war should be proof of that.”
R: It is absurd to believe that the only way to solve the economic cycles of the Western world is to create a war here and there.”
Now I know there will be some who will say that Roosevelt is lying. But how easy is it to lie on the Fourth Dimension or Astral Planes?
I’ve been on the Astral Plane in an out-of-body experience in 1977 and know that the spirit body is made of much finer material than the physical. It’s impossible to block the impact of emotions on the spirit body because the gross muscular tension patterns of the physical body are absent, either as the experiencer of one’s own emotions or the observer/receiver of other’s emotional displays.
For this reason, when T.E. Lawrence felt like dissembling, his guide, Mitchell warned him that, if he did, he (Mitchell) would have to leave.
“I felt suddenly constrained and diffident and the change must have been obvious to [Mitchell] for he said: ‘Don’t do that, for God’s sake, or I can’t stay. You have to learn that your feelings create an atmosphere about you that alters your relationship to those you meet.’” (2)
Negative emotions can be harmful on the Astral Plane, as Lawrence tells us:
“Emotion, as well as forming the stuff of our bodies, can be used as a very real force. They can be sent out from the body with almost lethal effect and the discharge of hatred, anger or cruelty can cause grievous injury to the one against whom it is directed. In fact, there is no longer any need to moralise about such things; they are no longer in the realm of the abstract, but are open and palpable offences for which a penalty must be paid.” (3)
Silver Birch advises us that lying is quite impossible on the Astral Planes:
“In our world what you are determines what you do. It is your spirit that is the dominant reality. There are no masks, no disguises, no subterfuges, no cheats; there is nothing hidden; all is known.” (4)
Who we are is plainly visible on the Astral Plane, Frances Banks advises us.
“The ‘subjective’ of the earth plane mind has become the ‘objective’ in this new state of Being.” (5)
“Here the persona, or mask, has been removed and our very thoughts are open to all.” (7)
“Anger, irritation, depression can actually be seen in the appearance and ‘field’ surrounding an entity. They can actually be felt and sometimes ‘heard’ as a low warning, drumming, rather like a wasp’s buzzing. I have experienced this in others, and, alas, other dear souls have avoided me for the same reason at times.” (8)
When, on my OOBE, I began to cry on the Astral Plane, because of the natural law, I had to leave the plane I was on and descend one lower, which for me involved a return to my physical body. For residents of the Astral Plane, it would involve a descent to a lower subplane. Effectively this very quickly induces residents to learn to avoid or control negative displays.
Because one cannot lie on the Astral Planes and remain in the higher levels, the books contained in libraries, known as “halls of literature,” contain only the truth. And because the matter of truthful sources will be of consequence to us soon, let me quote Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson at length on the subject:
“This was the hall of literature, and it contained every work worthy of the name. … To anyone who has a knowledge of earthly history, the volumes with which the shelves of this section of the great library were filled would prove illuminating. The reader would be able to gain, for the first time, the truth about the history of his country. Every word contained in these books was the literal truth. Concealment is impossible, because nothing but truth can enter these realms.” (9)
“Side by side with the statements of pure fact of every act by persons of historical note, by statesmen in whose hands was the government of their countries, by kings who were at the head of some of those countries, side by side with such statements was the blunt naked truth of each and every motive governing or underlying their numerous acts – the truth beyond disputation.
“Many of such motives were elevated; many, many of them were utterly base; many were misconstrued; many distorted. Written indelibly upon these spirit annals were the true narratives of thousands upon thousands of human beings, who, whilst upon their earthly journey, had been active participants in the affairs of their country. Some were victims to others’ treachery and baseness. None was spared, none omitted. It was all there for all to see – the truth, with nothing extenuated, nothing suppressed.
“These records had no respect for persons, whether it be king or commoner, churchman or layman. The writers had just set down the veridical story as it was. It required no adornment, no commentary. It spoke for itself. And I was profoundly thankful for one thing – that this truth had been kept from us until such time as we stood where we were now standing, when our minds would, in some measure, be prepared for revelations such as were here at hand.” (10)
“Who … writes the book of truth in spirit? The author of the earthly volume writes it – when he comes into the spirit world. And he is glad to do it. It becomes his work, and by such he can gain the progress of his soul. He will have no difficulty with the facts, for they are here for him to record, and he records them – but the truth this time! There is no need to dissemble – in fact, it would be useless.” (11)
Franklin Roosevelt would have been on the Astral Planes for 35 years by 1980. It would have taken him a matter of mere days or perhaps weeks at the outside to realize that lying was an impossibility. Therefore we can safely surmise that what he told Robert Leichtman would have been the truth.
So it’s probably safe to assume that Roosevelt did not conspire to cause Pearl Harbor. Bush, Cheney and the New World Order may have wanted a Pearl Harbor, but Roosevelt did not.
