On Thursday, September 20, 2012, JZ Knight presented an empowering talk to students at Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment (RSE) and worldwide participants via live-stream in 36 countries. Knight explained why she has become a significant donor to national, state, and regional Democratic causes. She clearly explained her concerns about a variety of issues including: women’s rights, the environment, and corporate collusion with the Republican Party.

Knight then introduced State Senate candidate Bruce Lachney and Thurston County Commissioner Sandra Romero to share their visions as they seek to represent this area in the November election.

Knight encouraged everyone to:
– get involved in your 2012 candidates from each party.
– read their platforms.
– support those who will follow their platforms.
– support your Democratic candidates if you agree with their platforms.
– beware of the Republican threat.

Knight closed by saying that the clearest path out of this quagmire is the Democratic ticket and urged everyone to register to vote.

JZ recommends this book: “Connectome”

Yelm and Thurston County Issues

Sebastian Seung, a dynamic young professor at MIT, is at the forefront of a revolution in neuroscience. He believes that our identity lies not in our genes, but in the connections between our brain cells—our particular wiring. Seung and a dedicated group of researchers are leading the effort to map these connections, neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse. It’s a monumental effort, but if they succeed, they will uncover the basis of personality, identity, intelligence, memory, and perhaps disorders such as autism and schizophrenia.

Connectome is a mind-bending adventure story, told with great passion and authority, that presents a daring scientific and technological vision for understanding what makes us who we are, both as individuals and as a species.

Seattle’s NPR interview with JZ Knight

Austin Jenkins, Olympia reporter for KUOW radio 94.9 FM in Seattle (a founding member of National Public Radio, NPR) interviewed JZ Knight on Friday, August 31 in a story titled:

“New age spiritual leader risks ‘ridicule’ to support Washington Dems”

“She is perhaps the Northwest’s most famous new age spiritual leader. JZ Knight of the Ramtha School of Enlightenment in Southwest Washington. Now Knight has a new role: major political donor. She recently wrote a $50,000 check to the state Democratic Party.

JZ Knight says she’s always been political. But she was reluctant to associate herself with the candidates she supports.

‘Here’s bluntly the reason. I have not wanted to openly support candidates because I was worried that the backlash because I supported them would hurt them because of people’s ignorant perceptions about me.’”

“‘The sadness I have is that though I’m a taxpaying citizen of Washington state, that I’m ridiculed for what I’m doing.’

Knight is concerned about a range of issues including: women’s rights, the environment, and voter ID laws. In recent years, she says she’s become a significant donor to national Democratic causes.

But this year -– for the first time — she’s also putting her money into Washington state politics, including direct contributions to a few individual candidates.

‘I just felt like it was time to give the Democrats equal funding to what the donors of the Republican Party are throwing into this state.'”
