Salsa Verde

I love salsa verde on boiled pinto beans and Spanish rice. Renaissance Man likes me to blend a cup of salsa with half an avocado the way they do at a restaurant called SuperMex in Long Beach, CA. They put the guacamole in their burritos. He found the restaurant during his Navy days and became a super fan.

This recipe is not a family recipe. I remember years ago writing it down from a lady on a San Diego news food segment.

Salsa Verde
12 tomatillos, medium
4 serranos with seeds
1 white onion, sliced 1/4 inch thick
3 garlic cloves
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup cilantro, chopped with stems and leaves
1 tsp. sea salt

Yield: 2-3 cups, 12 Servings

Raise the rack close to the boiler. Heat the broiler. Line a cookie sheet with foil. Take skin off tomatillos and garlic. Wash veggies. Cut off top of serranos. Line up tomatillos, serranos, onion, garlic on the cookie sheet. I don’t use two cookie sheets. Instead, I use one and watch the tomatillos and take them out using tongs before the onion is roasted. (The tomatillos may burst and make a mess of your oven.)

Roast veggies for 15-20 minutes. Sometimes the onion takes longer.

You can use a blender or food processor. I like my Vitamix because I can put hot food in the container. Then add all the other ingredients. I blend the cilantro too. If you want you can chop the cilantro and stir it into the salsa.

Happy Vegan!

9/11 Rogue Networks

Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery: The Fascist International, 9/11, and Penetrated Operations by Joseph P. Farrell. Pic by M.C.

I want to take a moment to pause for September 11, 2001 attacks on American soil when 2,977 lives were lost. This 9/11 post will be shorter than my posts from the last two years.

I decided to read Hidden Finance, Rogue Networks, and Secret Sorcery: The Fascist International, 9/11, and Penetrated Operations by Joseph P. Farrell to potentially share here. A large chunk of the book talks about three networks involved that ominous day.

Level one involves the “Islamic fundamentalist patsies,” flying airplanes into buildings under the direction of level two masters. Time is spent on Mohamed Atta and his criminal past. He kills kittens and curses God and possibly worked for Mossad and many other organizations/people that make him sound like he was serving more than one master. He doesn’t sound devout to any God.

Level two masters seem to be within the American command structure. Here President G. W. Bush and Vice President Cheney seemed to know about the military and government exercises and that “terrorists” were going to crash planes. But it seems that the Twin Towers coming down was not the intention. Supposedly, the goal was to create a false flag event to get America into war in the Middle East to secure its energy reserves and to destroy financial crimes. Apparently, there was a hidden system of finance that was used to bring down the Soviet Union.

Level three seems to be a “global network” and a “rogue network within a rogue network.” This part sounds like the JFK assassination where there were people from different sides within organizations and governments from various countries. In fact, the name Allen Dulles comes up. (Of course, he wasn’t alive in 2001, but the Deep State aspects are there.) How we know there was a level three of some kind? One clue is that someone called the White House switch board and said, “Angel is next.” “Angel,” was the code name for Air Force One. Dr. Farrell theorizes that level three’s actions indicated that they were severing ties with level two.

As I read I could see the different levels of criminals stabbing each other in the back like in a movie. Dr. Farrell has a way of connecting the dots like no one else. I can even hear his incredulous laugh. He’s a history nerd and can make any historical event fascinating. You can be entertained and enlightened by Dr. Farrell on his Giza Death Star website.

Happy Vegan!
