- The news today supports JZ’s 2008 Byline that included the science from over 6+ years ago.
“Disturbing! The Gulf Stream Now Stalling In Two Broken Areas!”
“Are we witnessing the Gulf Stream closing down? Is the cold November in the US just a precursor of what is to come?”

“New data from The Earth Wind Map and The NOAA Data Satellite both agree and are now showing the Gulf Stream is colder than average in not one area but two!” quoting Gary Walton, The Big Wobble Almanac.

- Excerpt from JZ’s 2008 Byline:
“Of recent concern is the momentum of the world’s ocean currents all linked together in a loop called the global ocean conveyor belt, in which the Gulf Stream of warm water flows to the East Coast of America and then merges with the deep cold-water currents from the northern Arctic waters. Scientists describe this belt as a giant “thermohaline pump” because it is driven by both temperature and salinity of the water. This pump powers up the continuous flow of the world’s ocean currents. At present, the effects of global warming have diminished the fragile balance of this pump to a low 49-percent capacity. What would happen to Europe if it ceased altogether? Would an ice sheet covering most of Northern America and Europe appear overnight? Would this be a new ice age? Scientists are worried because it has happened before. Research oceanographer, Dr. Ruth Curry, is very concerned because of the rapid ice melting in Greenland where the cold fresh water flows into the adjacent conveyor belt, essentially overwhelming its delicate balance. The recent decline of the belt’s momentum to 49-percent is due to Greenland’s meltdown. Scientists have determined that in the remote past this shut the system down, leading to an ice age. Are we ready for that to happen again?”

“Tax-exempt status of Olympia-based think tank under challenge by channeler JZ Knight”

JZ Knight News, Press, Yelm and Thurston County Issues

By Brad Shannon in The Olympian, Sunday, November 16, 2014:

“The tax-exempt status of conservative Freedom Foundation think tank has been called into question by lawyers for Yelm-based spirit channeler JZ Knight.

Knight, who has a long-running battle with the Olympia-based foundation over its use of her videotaped spiritual talks, contends the group is acting as a politically partisan organization.

As a result, Tacoma lawyer Brooke Johnson says it does not deserve its tax-exempt status as an educational organization, which is how it was set up in 1991 with a promise of ‘regular and bipartisan communication with elected officials’ and others.

‘There is nothing wrong with advocating your position, but what we are seeing is action on a political agenda and being aggressive,’ Johnson, who specializes in intellectual property rights and nonprofit organizations, said in an interview. ‘They are aggressively pursuing people they consider to be enemies.’”

“Johnson noted the foundation’s efforts since 2012 that slammed Democratic candidates and political parties over Knight’s campaign donations, and she cited state Public Disclosure Commission reports showing that Republican candidates and organizations, and not Democratic groups, have donated to the foundation over the years.

In sharp contrast, Johnson noted, the foundation has not acted against intemperate speech by those on the far right end of the political spectrum.”

“Knight’s New Title:
President Emeritus”

JZ Knight News, Yelm and Thurston County Issues


“JZ Knight relaxes with her dog at her pool inside her home on the grounds of the Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment. Knight, who says she channels the 35,000-year-old Ramtha, is turning over day-to-day operations of her business JZK Inc. to a board of directors.”

By Steven Wyble, Nisqually Valley News:
“Purported Channeler of Ramtha Stepping Down From Daily Responsibilities for JZK, Inc.”

“JZ Knight is stepping down from some of her duties as president of her company, JZK, Inc.

“Michael Wright, a spokesman for the company, said Knight — who claims to channel Ramtha, a 35,000-year-old Lemurian warrior turned spiritual guru — is stepping back from the day-to-day business management role she’s held for the past 10 years at the company. She’ll be stepping into a role as President Emeritus, Wright said.

Knight will remain the company’s “visionary” and continue to channel Ramtha, Wright said.

“She’s going to continue to be involved in molding the future of the school and the organization behind the school that supports it,” he said. “She’s just not going to be involved in the business management, day-in, day-out affairs.”

An executive team will take on Knight’s day-to-day business responsibilities, Wright said. Knight has been training the team over the past five years. The final makeup of the team will be announced after Jan. 1, Wright said.

Wright denied a rumor that Rebecca Capezio, a student of the Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, was planning to buy the company.

Ramtha introduced Capezio at a RSE event in Italy, and made reference to “the possibility that she might consider buying the school,” Wright said. “That’s not the first time he has acknowledged individuals with that possibility, nor will it be the last. Like any company, we’re always looking at continuity and change of control, and those opportunities are always being explored.”

Knight has committed to appearing with Ramtha at major events next year in February and July in Yelm, in May in South Korea, in August in Italy, and in September in South Africa, Wright said.

JZK, Inc. employs about 85 people, who all work in the South Sound area, Wright said. The company also works with about 40 coordinators who work as independent contractors in other countries.

Events at RSE are translated into eight to 10 languages, depending on the needs of registrants, Wright said.

About 5,000 people attended RSE’s world tour this year, according to the school. The tour ran from February to October.
