Thousands-strong om circle planned for tomorrow in Hot Springs

Hot Springs is going to be in “The Moment” tomorrow as organizers of a peace rally plan to send out vibrations through the Ouachita’s crystals, drumming and a collective om. Organizer Linda VanBibber calls the event an “an interfaith gathering to bring people of all races, colors and religious backgrounds together in unity. … Arkansas is full of quartz crystal, which will pick up what’s sent out and magnify it.”

VanBibber and Standing Bear Moore, who identifies himself as a Manataka Indian, say that between 2,500 and 10,000 people could show up on Hot Springs Mountain for the sunrise ceremony and other events. After some back and forth with the National Park Service about permits — they believe the park plans to park an ambulance and personnel on the mountain in the middle of the om circle — VanBibber and Moore said people from as far away as Australia and the Republic of the Congo will show up in the spa city to bring about what Moore says is the fulfillment of Manataka prophecy. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: A Hot Springs friend puts the crowd at 500, though the Park Service was ready for many more.

    So fed up was young Edgar Welch of Salisbury, N.C., that Hillary Clinton was getting away with running a child-sex ring that he grabbed a couple of guns last Sunday, drove 360 miles to the Comet Ping Pong pizzeria in Washington, D.C., where Clinton was supposed to be holding the kids as sex slaves, and fired his AR-15 into the floor to clear the joint of pizza cravers and conduct his own investigation of the pedophilia syndicate of the former first lady, U.S. senator and secretary of state.

    There is almost nothing real about "reality TV." All but the dullest viewers understand that the dramatic twists and turns on shows like "The Bachelor" or "Celebrity Apprentice" are scripted in advance. More or less like professional wrestling, Donald Trump's previous claim to fame.
