JAH TRUTH MUST BE TOLD TO THE PEOPLE. IT IS THE MESSAGE OF REGGAE, THE SPIRITUALITY OF JAH, THE FATHER, THROUGH HIS SON, JESUS CHRIST- RASTAFARI IS- LORDS OF LORDS AND SAVIOUR. THERE IS NONE HIS EQUAL.

EXCERPT (c)  REGGAE IS THE WORD AND WORKS OF JAH FOR THE REDEMPTION OF HIS PEOPLE.

WRITTEN WITH LOVE FOR ALL JAH PEOPLE. NO APOLOGIES FOR THE TRUTH

WE LIVE IN A TIME WHEN MOST PEOPLE ARE AFRAID TO OPENLY CALL ON THE NAME OF JAH, AND TO SPEAK OF JAH WORKS WITH THE REVERENCE AND CONVICTION AND RESPECT THAT JAH DESERVES.

HOW MANY TIMES HAVE YOU HEARD PEOPLE REFERRING TO GOD( JAH)- ” AS THE MAN UPSTAIRS”.

WHAT OR TO WHOM DO THEY MEAN WHEN THEY SAY THAT?

AND, THEN THERE ARE TIMES OF GREAT EXCITATION, GRIEF, OR SORROW, WHEN THEY WILL SHOUT- ” OH, MY GOD”!

THEN, THERE ARE THOSE WHO WILL SILENTLY PRAY TO WHAT THEY CONSIDER, A HIGHER POWER FOR THEIR NEEDS OR DELIVERANCE FROM THEIR PROBLEMS AND/OR AFFLICTIONS.

NOW, MUSIC MAY BE ONE THING TO GETTING PEOPLE TOGETHER, BUT REGGAE MUSIC IS A SPIRITUAL MESSAGE IN PROPHECY AND TRUTH WHICH SPEAKS TO THE REDEMPTION AND STRUGGLES OF JAH PEOPLE.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THE WORD- JAH- WHICH MEANS GOD- I ASK THAT YOU TAKE A LOOK AT THE BIBLE- IN PSALMS- WHICH SAYS-” EXTOL HIM THAT RIDETH UPON THE HEAVENS BY HIS NAME- JAH, AND REJOICE BEFORE HIM”.

REGGAE AND RASTAFARI IS NOT A RELIGION. REGGAE SPEAKS TO THE MESSAGE OF RASTAFARI IN TRUTHS AND RIGHTS FOR JAH PEOPLE.

THOSE IN THE SO-CALLED ENTERTAINMENT INDUSTRY- HAVE A GRAVE PROBLEM UNDERSTANDING THIS TRUTH. THEY KNOW NOT, NEITHER DO THEY CARE TO UNDERSTAND.

THEY ALL WANT TO TURN REGGAE INTO A SECULAR, MONEY MACHINE FOR THEMSELVES AND THEIR COHORTS. THEY WANT TO CONTROL JAH SPIRIT IN THE MUSIC.

JAH HAS MADE THEM ALL INTO STIFF NECKED FOOLS- WISE IN THEIR OWN EYES.

THE MESSAGE OF JAH IN THE MUSIC OF REGGAE PREDATES ANTIQUITY. JAH MUSIC HAS ALWAYS BEEN AN INTEGRAL PART OF JAH WORSHIP OF LOVE AND PRAISE TO JAH.

STANDING BY THE COURAGE OF YOUR CONVICTIONS, REGARDLESS OF THE CONSEQUENCES, IN THE PRAISE AND WORSHIP OF JAH, HAS ALWAYS BEEN THE MISSION OF REGGAE AND RASTAFARI.

THIS IS WHAT I HAVE MADE REGGAE TO BE. THE TRUTH IN THE FIGHT OF GOOD AGAINST EVIL.

ANY RASTAMAN TODAY WHO FEARS TO EXALT THE NAME OF JAH IN PRAISE AND WORSHIP, CANNOT CALL HIMSELF/HERSELF A TRUE DISCIPLE.

I, RAS CARDO AM FULLY AWARE THAT I MAY NOT SPEAK FOR MOST OF THOSE WHO CHANT RASTAFARI IN THE SPIRITUALITY OF JESUS CHRIST, BUT THE TRUTH WILL FIND ITS WAY TO THOSE WHO FEAR TO HONOR AND TO EXALT THE NAME OF THE MOST HIGH GOD-JAH OF CREATION.

I STAND WITH UNWAVERING, AND ABSOLUTE COURAGE OF MY CONVICTIONS TO SERVE JAH TO GUIDE AND PROTECT I AND I IN ALL CIRCUMSTANCES.

THE WORD OF JAH/GOD IS ABSOLUTE, AND I AM COMMITTED TO OBEYING JAH.

I WILL NOT COMPROMISE MY VALUES AND MY LOVE FOR THE TRUTH OF THE LIVING GOD- JAH ALMIGHTY.

I WILL NOT BOW DOWN TO WORSHIP THE WAYS OF SATAN.

I STAND WITH DANIEL- AS HE DID IN DEFYING THE KING OF BABYLON.

I STAND WITH GIDEON IN FULL ARMOUR WITH THIS DEFIANCE.

TODAY, MOST PEOPLE WILL CAVE IN TO THE EVILS IN BABYLON SYSTEM.

I MUST ASK YOU- WHAT ARE YOUR CONVICTIONS IN THIS LIFE, THIS TIME OF MORAL DECADENCE IN OUR WORLD?

THE CHURCHES TODAY STAND SILENT AND CONFUSED CONCERNING THE MANY ILLS IN THE SOCIETY.

I MUST ASK THEM- WHY ARE THEY AFRAID TO SPEAK THE TRUTH?

WHY HAVE THEY FAILED TO ACT WHEN AT TIMES THEY SHOULD HAVE ACTED?

THEY ALL WANT TO GO TO HEAVEN BUT ARE AFRAID TO DIE FOR THE TRUTH.

I, AND I, RAS CARDO KNOWS THIS TRUTH- LOSING ONE’S LIFE FOR JAH, IS TO FIND IT FOREVER.

JAH HAS NOT GIVEN US THE SPIRIT TO FEAR THE ENEMY.

FOR I AND I KNOW THAT JAH WILL BE EXALTED IN MY BODY, BY LIFE OR BY DEATH. FOR TO LIVE IS JAH, AND TO DIE IS GAIN.

I KNOW WHAT IT FEELS LIKE TO BE HUNGRY, AND TO BE CONTENT WITH HAVING NOTHING TO HOPE FOR BUT JAH GRACE, LOVE AND MERCIES.

BUT, AS MY BRETHREN, BOB MARLEY HAD TOLD YOU IN SONG- WE REFUSED TO BE WHAT THE ENEMY WANTED US TO BE. WE COME FROM TRENCH TOWN.

THIS IS NOT THE TIME TO BE AFRAID OF ANYONE, NOR OF ANYTHING, FOR YOU HAVE BEEN FOREWARNED IN THE MESSAGES OF THE PROPHECY IN THE MUSIC OF REGGAE AND RASTAFARI.

I , RAS CARDO SENDS JAH LOVE AND PEACE TO ALL THOSE WHO ARE TROUBLED.

STAND FIRM! STAND STRONG!

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

TRUTH BE TOLD- THOSE WHO WRITE ABOUT BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH AVOID THE HISTORY OF THEIR TRENCH TOWN DAYS. THIS IS BECAUSE THEY KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT. SOME WILL TRY TO FABRICATE STORIES OF IT AND QUICKLY SELL IT TO OTHERS.I, RAS CARDO, HAS THE DETAILS OF THE HISTORY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN LIVITY.

EXCERPT (c) TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH. I, RAS CARDO, AM HERE TO SEE THAT THIS IS DONE.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

TO THE DECEIVERS OF OUR PEOPLE:-

YOU CAN LIE AS MUCH AS YOU WANT, BUT THERE COMES A TIME WHEN THE TRUTH WILL MEET YOU FACE TO FACE IN THE EYES OF THE WORLD. IT IS THEN THAT YOU WILL HAVE TO LEARN TO LIVE WITH THE CONSEQUENCES WHICH WILL FOLLOW YOU FOR THE REMAINDER OF YOUR LIFE.

FOR ALL THOSE WHO HAVE UNJUSTLY ENRICHED THEMSELVES AT THE EXPENSE OF THE POOR, DISADVANTAGED, DOWNPRESSED, AND SUFFERING PEOPLES, I, SAY, YOUR TIME SHALL COME.

TRUTH, THEY SAY, IS STRANGER THAN FICTION.

WE LIVE IN A WORLD WHERE THINGS SEEM TO BE UPSIDE DOWN. WHAT IS WRONG IS NOW RIGHT. WHAT WAS RIGHT IS NOW WRONG.

LOOK AROUND YOU. HOW COMFORTABLE ARE YOU IN KNOWING THE TRUTH?

HOW UNEASY DO YOU GET KNOWING THAT SOMEONE, SOMEWHERE, AT SOME TIME WILL FIND OUT THAT YOU HAVE LIED TO THEM?

YOUR LIES MAY HAVE CAUSED THEM IMMENSE HARM, PAIN,. ANGUISH AND SUFFERING.

I DON’T HAVE TO TELL YOU, BUT THERE ARE MANY TODAY WHO HAVE BEEN EYEWITNESS TO EVENTS IN WHICH OTHERS ARE HARMED AND HAVE REFUSED TO COME FORWARD AND TELL THE TRUTH.

MORAL DECADENCE, DECEIT, LIES, AND NEFARIOUS ACTIVITIES PERVADES OUR WORLD.

TODAY, YOU HAVE MASS EXODUS OF PEOPLES DYING AS THEY FLEE FROM THE WICKEDNESS OF THOSE WHO ENSLAVE AND TORTURE THEM IN COUNTRIES SUCH AS SYRIA, AND AFRICA.

LET ME SAY THIS:

I, RAS CARDO PRAYS FOR THE DELIVERANCE OF JAH PEOPLE, AND WISH TO THANK COUNTRIES SUCH AS TURKEY, AND GREECE FOR THE HELP GIVEN TO THESE SUFFERING PEOPLES.

FOR ALL THOSE JUST STRICKEN BY THE HURRICANE IN HAITI, AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, MAY JAH SEND HIS ANGELS TO GUIDE AND PROTECT YOU ALL.

HERE IN AMERICA, ONE CAN SEE THE CAUSES OF WHAT DRIVES OUR SOCIAL PROCLIVITIES.

PEOPLE- BLACK AND WHITE IN AMERICA- ARE LIKE STREAMS RUNNING TOGETHER WHOSE WATERS DO NOT DARE TO MIX.

THIS TOO MUST CHANGE IF AMERICA WISHES TO CONTINUE ITS WORLD DOMINANCE.. THIS COUNTRY HAS BEEN BLESSED AND SPARED BY JAH LOVE FOR THE PEOPLE, BUT THIS WILL NOT CONTINUE IN OUR MORAL DECADENCE.

I HAVE SEEN THE INFLUENCE OF REGGAE, AND THE RASTAMAN CULTURE IN AMERICA.

I HAVE SEEN THE IMPACT OF THE MUSIC AND MESSAGES OF MY BRETHRENS- PETER TOSH AND BOB MARLEY.

TODAY, IN AMERICA YOU CAN AND WILL SEE MOST OF THE YOUTHS WEARING THEIR HAIRS IN LOCKS.

MANY MAY NOT KNOW WHY THEY DO SO, BUT, TRUTH BE TOLD, THEY WANT TO SEE THEMSELVES AS IDENTIFYING WITH SOMETHING WHICH UPLIFTS THEM IN SOME WAY.

A WORD OF CAUTION MUST BE SAID HERE: THE HAIR IN LOCKS IS NOT WHAT DEFINES YOU. IT IS NOT A STYLE OR A FASHION STATEMENT.

ONE DOES NOT HAVE TO WEAR THE LOCKS TO BE SEEN AS ONE WHO DOES GOOD FOR THE PEOPLE.

IT IS WHAT LIES IN THE HEART THAT COUNTS. THE LOVE FOR JAH PEOPLE.

WE SING- TELL THE CHILDREN THE TRUTH- FOR WE HAVE BEEN TAKEN FOR GRANTED MUCH TOO LONG.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE SPEAKS THE TRUTH OF THE PEOPLE WITHOUT FEAR OF THE ENEMY.

THOSE WHO ARE EVIL WILL ALWAYS TRY TO MAKE IT DIFFICULT FOR THOSE WHO SEEK TRUTH TO FIND IT.

MY PROPHETIC MOTHER WOULD SAY- “THEY WANT YOU TO SUCK SALT THROUGH A WOODEN SPOON”.- MAMA SCOTT. MAY JAH REST HER SOUL.

HAD I NOT SECURED THE DETAILS OF THE HISTORY OF OUR TRENCH TOWN REGGAE AND RASTAFARI LIVITY OVER THE YEARS, THE ENEMY WOULD HAVE WON THE BATTLE TO DISTORT THE TRUTH OF OUR WORKS.

TODAY, I STAND BEFORE THE WORLD AS THE CREATOR OF REGGAE AND THE KEEPER OF THE ARK OF THE TRENCH TOWN REGGAE COVENANT.

IN ALL MY WORKS , WRITINGS AND PUBLICATIONS OVER THE YEARS, I HAVE NEVER POSTED ONLINE OR OFF, ANYTHING WHICH LIES AND MISLEADS ANYONE AS TO THE TRUTH.

WHATEVER I CHOOSE NOT TO READILY DISCLOSE HAS SOLID REASONS FOR MY ACTIONS IN NOT DOING SO.

WHEN I DARE ALL THOSE WHO THINK THAT I AM JOKING IN MY CHALLENGES TO THEM ON CERTAIN ISSUES WHICH I KNOW IMPACTS US, AND  OUR WORKS, THEY CAN TAKE WHATEVER ACTIONS THEY SEE FIT.

I WILL SAY THIS AGAIN: I, AM RAS CARDO WHO COINED AND CREATED THE GENRE OF REGGAE, AND REGGAE OPERA WHILE LIVING IN TRENCH TOWN IN THE EARLY SIXTIES.

I AM ALSO THE ONE WHO CREATED THE TERM- TECHNOTYRANNICAL SOCIETY.

I HAVE WRITTEN THAT- R.E.G.G.A.E- MEANS- REAFFIRMING GHETTO GENIUS ANYWHERE EVERYWHERE AND ANYTIME, EVERYTIME.

R.A.S.P.E.C.T1 – IS ALSO MY CREATION.

THE GUINNESS BOOK OF RECORDS DO NOT HAVE THE TRUTHS WHICH I HAVE AS IT PERTAINS TO REGGAE, TRENCH TOWN, AND OUR RASTAFARI LIVITY.

YOU CAN FIND SOME OF MY TRUTHS ONLINE AT WWW.NEWSVINE.COM,,WWW.FACEBOOK.COM, WWW.ALL EXPERTS.COM, ANSWERS.COM, AND OTHERS.

I HAVE SHARED A LOT IN THE EDUCATION OF OUR PEOPLE AS TO OUR REGGAE CULTURE WORLDWIDE. IT IS ALL TRUE.

THOSE WHO TRY TO MISLEAD AND MISINFORM OTHERS AS TO OUR WORKS ARE IMPOSTERS, DECEIVERS, LIARS, AND MERCENARY OF FORTUNES. KNOW WHO YOU CAN TRUST FOR THE TRUTH.

THOSE WHO HAVE QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS CAN FEEL FREE TO CONSULT MY WORKS AS THEY SEE FIT.

TOO MANY OF OUR WOMEN FROM ALL ETHNIC BACKGROUNDS ARE BEING LOST AT THE HANDS OF SERIAL KILLERS AND RAPIST WHILE THE REST OF THE COMMUNITIES FROM WHICH THEY COME DON’T SEEM TO HAVE MISSED THEM. HOW CAN WE ALLOW THIS TO CONTINUE?

EXCERPT (c) THE CHILD INHERITS THE CONDITIONS OF THE MOTHER.

WOMAN- WHERE IS THY DAUGHTER?  FATHER- WHERE IS THY SON?

DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR CHILDREN ARE?

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE.

THEY MAY HAVE LOST THEIR WAY BY THEIR ADDICTIONS TO DRUGS OR WHATEVER HAVE TRAPPED THEM IN THEIR AFFLICTIONS, BUT WE MUST REMEMBER THAT THEY TOO HAVE FAMILIES AND LOVED ONES FROM WHICH THEY CAME.

IT IS MY FIRM CONVICTION THAT WE, AS A SOCIETY, HAVE TURNED A BLIND EYE TO THE MANY WOMEN WHO HAVE FALLEN INTO THE HANDS OF SERIAL KILLERS AND RAPISTS WHO HAVE SEIZED THE OPPORTUNITY TO RAPE, KILL AND TORTURE OUR WOMEN, JUST BECAUSE THEY KNOW THAT THE SOCIETY AT LARGE WILL NOT CARE TO HAVE MISSED THEM.

I WOULD NOT HAVE THE TIME TO TELL YOU ABOUT THE CASES THAT HAVE COME TO MY KNOWLEDGE OVER THE YEARS WHERE WOMEN OF ALL AGES, CLASS AND CREEDS, HAVE FALLEN VICTIMS TO THOSE KILLERS AND RAPISTS BECAUSE  NO ONE SEEM TO CARE TO TAKE THE TIME TO ACCOUNT FOR THEIR ABSENCES.

I WILL NEVER UNDERSTAND THE GROSS INDIFFERENCE SHOWN TO THOSE FAMILIES WHO HAVE SOUGHT THE HELP OF LAW ENFORCEMENTS AND OTHER AGENCIES TO EARNESTLY LOOK INTO THE DISAPPEARANCES OF MANY WOMEN WHO HAVE FAILED TO SHOW UP AT THEIR FAMILY RESIDENCES, JUST BECAUSE IT IS KNOWN THAT THEY MAY HAVE HAD SOME DRUG DEPENDENCY OR AFFLICTION.

I MUST ASK ALL CONCERNED CITIZENS OF THIS GREAT NATION TO TAKE A CLOSER LOOK AT WHAT IS HAPPENING AROUND YOU, AND TO HELP THOSE IN LAW ENFORCEMENT TO DO WHAT THOSE WHO ARE SWORN TO -PROTECT AND SERVE- MUST DO.

SERIAL RAPISTS AND KILLERS OF OUR WOMEN AND OTHER PEOPLE KNOW ALL TOO WELL THAT THE PRIORITY GIVEN TO THE SOLVING OF CERTAIN CRIMES IN CERTAIN NEIGHBORHOODS DEPENDS ON THE STIGMA ASSOCIATED WITH THAT NEIGHBORHOOD.

THIS STIGMATIZATION AND RELUCTANCE TO ACT WITH THE SWIFTNESS THAT IT DESERVES DEPENDS ON SEVERAL FACTORS.

UNLESS THE FAMILIES OF THESE WOMEN TAKES A STAND TO SPEAK UP AND TO TAKE THE COURAGE TO HELP IN SECURING THE RETURN OF THEIR MISSING LOVED ONES, THEN IT WILL ALWAYS BE TOO LATE TO FIND THEM ALIVE BEFORE THE PREDATORS TAKES A HOLD OF THEM.

WE MUST DO ALL WE CAN TO PUT AN END TO SERIAL RAPISTS AND KILLERS OF OUR WOMEN AND ALSO OTHER CHILDREN.

THIS IS A CANCER AMONG US WHICH DOES HAVE A DEFINITE CURE. THE CURE LIES IN THE COMMUNITY.

I MUST ASK ALL THOSE FAMILIES WHO HAVE LOVED ONES LIVING ON THE STREETS AND IN PLACES WHERE DRUGS ARE BEING USED AS WEAPONS TO ENSLAVE THEM, TO TAKE A STAND IN CARING ENOUGH AS TO KNOW THE WHEREABOUTS OF THEIR LOVED ONES.

WE CANNOT GIVE UP ON THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN INTO THE HANDS AND TRAPS OF WICKED MEN WHO SEEK TO PREY UPON THOSE UNABLE TO DEFEND THEMSELVES.

2015- WILL GO DOWN AS A YEAR OF VIOLENT EXTREMES IN THE KILLINGS OF OUR PEOPLE- ALL OVER THE GLOBE.

MANY OF US ARE AFRAID TO TAKE THE COURAGE TO STAND UP FOR WHAT IS RIGHT AND JUST AROUND US. IT IS AS IF WE HAVE LOST OUR MORAL COMPASS IN LIFE, IF INDEED WE HAD ONE.

I, RAS CARDO WILL SAY THIS TRUTH:

SECTARIAN BIAS HAS NO PLACE IN MY WRITINGS OF TRUTH.

I WILL CONTINUE TO WRITE AND SPEAK FOR THE SAFETY OF THE PEOPLE.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

YES! FOR THOSE WHO ASKED. REGGAE OPERA IS ALSO MY TRENCH TOWN CREATION. I DID THIS IN 1964, AND TOOK IT TO SCHOOL TO SHARE WITH CLASSMATE- GEOFFREY CHUNG. BRO.(NOW- FATHER RICHARD HO-LUNG S.J.) -WAS THERE AT SCHOOL TRAINING TO BE A PRIEST. THE WHOLE SCHOOL WAS AWARE OF MY REGGAE AND REGGAE OPERA CREATIONS. I HOLD THE COPYRIGHTS, INCLUDING THE PERFORMING RIGHTS FOR ALL MY CREATIONS. THE LIBRARY OF CONGRESS HAS THE RECORDS. THE DETAILS IS IN THE HISTORY IN MY KEEP.

EXCERPT (c) RAS CARDO REGGAE OPERA, GOSPEL ACAPPELLA MUSIC. A NEW GENRE OF REGGAE MUSIC.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE

THE TRUTH MUST BE TOLD FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE.

LET ALL TO WHOM THIS PRESENT SHALL COME KNOW THIS:

REGGAE AND REGGAE OPERA ARE MY TRENCH TOWN CREATIONS. REGGAE WAS CREATED IN 1962. REGGAE OPERA WAS CREATED IN 1964.

I, RAS CARDO TOOK BOTH OF MY CREATIONS AND SHARED WITH MY CLASS MATE AND HIGH SCHOOL- JAMAICAN CHINESE FRIEND- THE LATE- GEOFFREY CHUNG.

REGGAE OPERA WAS NEVER THE CREATION OF BROTHER( NOW- FATHER RICHARD HO-LUNG S.J.)- OF THE FOOD FOR THE POOR MINISTRY, OR ANY OTHER.

THEY ARE MY EXCLUSIVE CREATIONS AND INVENTIONS. LEGALLY PROTECTED BY MY COPYRIGHTS.

FOR THOSE WHO MAY HAVE GOTTEN THE WRONG IMPRESSION FROM HIS USE OF MY CREATED IDEA, AND INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS. I WILL NOT HESITATE TO TAKE ANY AND ALL LEGAL ACTIONS NECESSARY TO ENFORCE IT.

IN ALL MY PUBLIC AND PUBLISHED WRITINGS AND PERFORMING, I HAVE ALWAYS MADE IT CLEAR OF MY OWNERSHIP OF MY MATERIALS.

I WOULD HOPE THAT THOSE WHO READ AND SHARE MY WORKS DO SO WITH THE RESPECT THAT IT DESERVES GIVING CREDIT AND TRUTH.

REGGAE AND REGGAE OPERA ARE MY EXCLUSIVE CREATIONS AND INVENTIONS.

THOSE WHO EQUIVOCATE TO OTHERS ONLY AIM TO INTENTIONALLY MISLEAD AND LIE TO THEM.

WHILE IN HIGH SCHOOL I WAS THE ONE WHO INITIATED AND IGNITED A FIRESTORM IN MUSIC WHICH BEGAN TO SPREAD TO ALL THE OTHER SCHOOLS IN THE CITY OF KINGSTON.

MY TRENCH TOWN REGGAE WHICH I TOOK TO THE SCHOOL IN 1962 WAS THE FLAME THAT STARTED IT ALL.

SHORTLY THEREAFTER- BROTHER( NOW FATHER HO-LUNG S.J.) STARTED HIS GROUP WITH HIS GUITAR- PLAYING SONGS LIKE- KUMBAYA.

BEFORE I TOOK THE BOLD STEP OF BRINGING REGGAE TO A SERIOUSLY RELIGIOUS JESUIT RUN SCHOOL, IT WAS A CHANCE I KNEW COULD HAVE GOTTEN ME EXPELLED.

WELL, IT DIDN’T. AND AS I HAVE SAID IN MY WRITINGS, THE HISTORY IS IN THE DETAILS WHICH ARE IN MY KEEP.

I ADMIRE AND RESPECT THE WORKS THAT THE PRIESTS ARE DOING AND HAVE DONE FOR THE POOR IN JAMAICA.

I WAS FORTUNATE TO HAVE BEEN ABLE TO ATTEND THE SCHOOL AND TO HAVE GRADUATED WITH SUCCESS. MY TEACHERS WERE THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS.

MY PARENTS AND FRIENDS WERE HAPPY WHEN I GOT THE SCIENCE PRIZE IN 1966 AT THE GRADUATION CEREMONY.

I WILL NEVER FORGET THE LOVE THEY GAVE THE TRENCH TOWN CREW OF YOUTHS WHO ATTENDED DURING MY TIME THERE.

REMEMBER THIS: NO ONE FROM TRENCH TOWN WAS SUPPOSED TO SUCCEED- BUT WE REFUSED TO BE WHAT THEY WANTED US TO BE.

DID I NOT TELL BOB MARLEY TO TELL THE WORLD SO?

I HAVE THE DETAILS OF THE ENTIRE HISTORY.

WELL, ANYONE WHO HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THESE TRUTHS CAN DO THEIR OWN RESEARCH AND VERIFICATION WITH THE USA- LIBRARY OF CONGRESS IN WASHINGTON D.C. ETC.

REGGAE OPERA AND THE FIRST REGGAE SOPRANO IN HISTORY IS – JANET SCOTT- ALSO KNOWN AS – THE REGGAE OPERA  D.I.V.A( DIVINELY INSPIRED VOCAL ACAPPELLA). SHE HAS HER PRAYER IN MUSIC MINISTRY.. PEACE!

SO, THE KILLINGS OF THESE ANIMALS IN AFRICA MEANS NOTHING TO THESE THIEVES AND MURDERERS! WE KNEW THIS ALL ALONG, AND NOW THEY HAVE BOLDLY ADMITTED TO THE DESTRUCTION OF AFRICA. WHERE ARE THE ANIMAL RIGHTS PEOPLE? WHERE ARE THE CONSERVATIONISTS? WE TALK ABOUT SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT. IF A YOUNG CHILD KILLS A CAT OR A DOG WE IMMEDIATELY SAY THE CHILD NEEDS THERAPY, YET WE KILL, AND TEACH THE CHILD TO KILL ANIMALS. SUCH HYPOCRITES! THE MESSAGE IN ALL THIS IS CRYSTAL CLEAR. DESTROY THE SYMBOL THAT IS AFRICA. THE LION OF THE TRIBE OF JUDAH MUST DIE. JAH SEES AND KNOWS.

EXCERPT FROM (c) SEE THE HYPOCRITES AND MURDERERS REVEAL THEMSELVES. REGGAE AND RASTAFARI SPOKE ABOUT THIS YEARS AGO.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE, AND FOR ALL THOSE WHO LOVE THE TRUTH AND LIFE.

IT HAS BEEN KNOWN FOR YEARS THAT THE DESTRUCTION OF AFRICA WAS TAKING PLACE.

IT HAS BEEN KNOWN THAT IN MANY INSTANCES THERE ARE BLACK PEOPLE WHO ARE ENABLING THE DESTRUCTION OF THEIR HOMELAND- AFRICA.

I MEAN, THE THIEVES ARE BEING HELPED BY THOSE WHOSE HOMES ARE BEING ROBBED.

NOW, WHO WOULD HELP A THIEF TO STEAL THEIR BELONGINGS?

IT WAS ALSO THE BLACK PEOPLE IN AFRICA WHO ENABLED THE SLAVE MASTERS TO BRING THE SLAVES TO THE BORDER SLAVE PORTS FOR SHIPPING.

POACHING, AND THE KILLINGS OF THE ANIMALS AND OTHER WILD LIFE RESOURCES IN AFRICA HAS BEEN GOING ON IN THE SHADOWS FOR YEARS.

NOW, WE SEE THE TRUTH.

NOW WE SEE HOW BOLD AND PROUD THESE MURDERERS CAN DISPLAY THEIR KILL. WHILE THE REST OF THE WORLD REMAIN SILENT.

TO ALL AFRICAN PEOPLE, BE THEY IN AFRICA OR ELSEWHERE- WHAT IS THE MESSAGE IN THE KILLINGS?

I DO NOT HAVE TO TELL YOU ABOUT THOSE WHO KILL- BE IT AN ANIMAL OR A HUMAN BEING.

IT HAS BEEN REPORTED THAT OVER 64% OF THE ANIMAL KILLINGS IN AFRICA IS DONE BY AMERICAN TROPHY HUNTERS FOR SPORT.

YET, WE HAVE AMERICANS WHO ARE TALKING ABOUT SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT.

WHO ARE WE SAVING THE ENVIRONMENT FOR?

DO THEY NOT THINK THAT THE ANIMALS ARE A NATURAL PART OF THE SAVING OF THE ENVIRONMENT?

PEOPLE OF THE WORLD- LISTEN UP; YOU ARE MOSTLY A BUNCH OF HYPOCRITES AND MURDERERS. I KNOW THAT THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS, BUT THIS IS FOR THE KILLERS AND THOSE WHO HAVE DESTROYED AFRICA.

WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE TO THE PEOPLE?

YOU HAVE PROUDLY DISPLAYED YOUR KILLS ON WORLD TELEVISION, AND ARE TRYING TO MAKE THOSE WHO ARE FOOLISH SEE YOU AS WHAT? GREAT HUNTERS OF ANIMALS AND MEN?

YOU ARE KILLERS AND THE DESTRUCTION OF AFRICA, BUT WE HAVE KNOWN THIS ALL ALONG.

THE LION IS ONE OF THE GREAT SYMBOLS OF AFRICA. YET YOU DESTROY IT.

WHEN OTHER PEOPLE DESECRATE THE AMERICAN FLAG, YOU ABHOR IT.

SO , WHAT IS YOUR MESSAGE- MR KILLER MAN?

WE KNEW THAT IN TIME YOU WOULD ALL REVEAL YOURSELVES. NOW IS YOUR REVELATION TIME, AND YET SOME OF YOU HAVE HIDDEN WITH YOUR KILLS FOR YEARS.

JAH HAS FLUSHED YOU OUT FROM YOUR HIDING PLACES. THY KINGDOM COME!

MAY JAH HAVE MERCY ON YOUR HYPOCRITICAL MURDEROUS SOULS, FOR IN A TIME APPOINTED YOUR END WILL BE BITTER.

I COULD UNDERSTAND IF YOU WERE BEING ATTACKED BY THESE ANIMALS, BUT THIS WAS NOT THE CASE. YOU WENT TO AFRICA WITH THE INTENT TO DESTROY THEM, AND DESTROY THEM YOU HAVE.

OH, THAT MOTHER AFRICA COULD REPAIR THE DAMAGE YOU HAVE DONE TO HER ANIMALS AND HER CHILDREN, AND HER PEOPLE.

YOU ARE MAKING SURE THAT BLACK PEOPLE HAVE NO ANCESTRAL HOMELAND TO RETURN TO.

IT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR BLACK PEOPLE AND ALL AFRICAN PEOPLE  TO TAKE CAREFUL NOTE OF WHAT IS CONNECTED IN ALL THIS.

THIS IS NOT A COLOR OF THE SKIN ISSUE.

THIS IS XENOPHOBIA. THIS IS THE BLACK HOLOCAUST.

FOR HIDDEN IN THE KILLINGS OF OUR PEOPLE AND OUR ANIMALS IS THE MESSAGE OF THE DESTRUCTION AND THE EXTERMINATION OF OUR PEOPLE.

BUT THE ENEMY THINK THAT WE ARE A LL FOOLISH- BUT-

HAS JAH NOT MADE THE WISDOM OF THE WORLD FOOLISH?

SEE DI HYPOCRITES DEM A GALONG DEH.!

IN TIME YOUR OWN WEAPONS WILL BE TURNED AGAINST YOU.

THIS IS REGGAE AND REVELATION TIME.

R.A.S.P.E.C.T! SAID- THIS DAY WOULD COME. THE TIME IS NOW.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS REVELATION TIME.

I HAVE BEEN ASKED SO MANY TIMES BY PEOPLE- “WHO IS REALLY RUNNING JAMAICA?” I HAVE ALSO BEEN ASKED THE SAME ABOUT AMERICA, MY BLACK PEOPLE, THEIR PLIGHT, THEIR FUTURE, IF ANY. I AM NOT A POLITICIAN IN GOVERNMENT. I HAVE SEEN THE SUFFERINGS OF MY AFRICAN PEOPLES,MY PARENTS INCLUDED. I HAVE FELT THE SAME. READ MY WORKS AND TELL ME IF YOU FIND ANY LIES IN IT. MY REGGAE AND RASTAFARI SPEAKS THE TRUTHS ABOUT THE SUFFERINGS OF JAH PEOPLE WITHOUT FEAR.

EXCERPT (c) R.A.S.P.E.C.T1

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE- THIS IS TRUTH.

MY REGGAE ASKS THE QUESTIONS IN SEARCH FOR TRUTH. IT IS THE ONLY GENRE OF MUSIC WHICH DOES THAT, AND THOSE WHO FEAR THE REVELATIONS, TARGETS THE MESSENGERS IN WAYS TOO LEGION TO MENTION.

HE WHO CARRIES THE ARK OF THE SPIRITUAL COVENANT OF REGGAE AND RASTAFARI WILL BE FEARED BY ALL NATIONS.

SOME YEARS AGO IT WAS REPORTED IN MEDIA-LAND THAT I SAID THIS:-

“REGGAE IS RASTAFARIAN, PROPHECY, AND MESSAGE GIVING. IT AIMS TO UNITE PEOPLE IN A LOVING WAY, SO THAT WE CAN STOP ALL THIS HATRED AND KILLINGS.I THINK THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IS TRYING TO TAKE THAT SPIRITUALITY OUT OF IT AND REALLY SECULARIZE IT”

I STAND BY THIS TRUTH.

REGGAE MUSIC AND ITS MESSAGE WILL BE FEARED BY ALL THOSE WHO WANT TO DECEIVE, HATE, SUFFER, AND KILL THE TRUTH OF JAH PEOPLE.

SO MUCH THINGS TO SAY- TAKES MORE THAN A LIFETIME TO EXPLAIN HOW WE FEEL TODAY. QUESTIONS , MORE THAN ANSWERS.

MY LATE GREAT PROPHETIC MOTHER AND FATHER ALWAYS SAID-” IF PEOPLE HATE YOU, THEY WILL GIVE YOU A BUCKET TO CARRY WATER”.

I DO NOT HAVE TIME TO EXPLAIN THIS TO YOU. THE UNIVERSAL STRUGGLE IS- GOOD VERSUS EVIL.

LET ME ASK THE WORLD PEOPLE A FEW QUESTIONS-

WHAT IS IT ABOUT THE JEWS THAT MAKES YOU WANT TO GET RID OF THEM SO VEHEMENTLY?

WHAT IS IT ABOUT BLACK PEOPLE, IN AMERICA AND ELSEWHERE THAT YOU WANT TO DO THE SAME?

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF WHEN YOU HAVE LEFT YOUR HOME, YOU RETURN TO SEE THAT IT NO LONGER EXISTS?

HOW WOULD YOU FEEL IF YOU WERE FORCIBLY TAKEN FROM YOUR HOME, WHILE THOSE RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR ABDUCTION DESTROYS YOUR DWELLINGS IN YOUR ABSENCE?

WHO CAN DENY THAT THE JEWS SUFFER HURT?

WHO CAN DENY THAT SLAVERY, AND BLACK PEOPLE WERE NEVER REGARDED AS HUMAN BEINGS?

WHO CAN DENY THAT BLACK PEOPLE IN THE WEST HAVE NO PLACE TO CALL HOME?

HOW WILL WE EVER, REPAIR THIS DAMAGE TO A PEOPLE?

LISTEN: THOUSANDS OF WHITE PEOPLE IN AND OUT OF AMERICA HAVE ADMITTED THE KNOWLEDGE OF THESE TRUTHS, BUT THEY WILL NEVER DO SO IN PUBLIC.

THEY WILL SAY TO ME-” IF THIS GOES PUBLIC, I WILL DENY IT”. THEY WILL OFTEN SAY THIS TO ME  IN A WHISPER, EVEN WHEN NO ONE ELSE IS AROUND.

THAT’S WHY I KNOW, THAT AMERICA STILL HAS SOME GOOD PEOPLE LEFT, BUT MOST OF THEM ARE AFRAID TO SPEAK TRUTH FOR WHATEVER REASONS.

THIS, AMERICA IS A TRAVESTY, AND THE MAIN REASONS WHY RACISM AND ALL YOUR OTHER ISMS WILL NEVER GO AWAY.

AMERICA, I HAVE BEEN HERE LEGALLY FOR A NUMBER OF YEARS HELPING YOUR PEOPLE IN MANY AREAS OF PRODUCTIVE SERVICE. YOUR SYSTEM MAY HAVE ITS FLAWS, BUT YOU HAVE SOME GOOD PEOPLE LEFT. I KNOW THE TRUTH.

FOR THOSE WHO ARE BLACK, AND WITHIN YOUR BELLY, I CAN ONLY PRAY THAT THEY WILL SPEAK THE TRUTH AS I HAVE DONE.

I HAVE SEEN WHERE YOU TALK MUCH ABOUT- “FREEDOM OF SPEECH”. HOW REAL IS THAT? HOW SAFE IS THAT?

AMERICA HAS TO DECIDE WHAT IT MEANS TO HAVE BLACK PEOPLE IN THIS LAND, AND MUST MAKE CERTAIN THAT THEY CAN FEEL THAT THEY CAN CALL IT HOME- AWAY FROM THEIR ANCESTRAL HOME.

I, RAS CARDO HOPE THAT AMERICA WILL SEE THE LIGHT OF TRUTH. PEACE.

(c) RAS CARDO SPEAKS. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

NO MATTER WHERE YOU COME FROM AS LONG AS YOU ARE A BLACK MAN- YOU ARE AN AFRICAN. DID NOT MY BRETHREN PETER TOSH TOLD YOU THIS? TOO LONG IN SLAVERY- WHEN WILL WE RETURN NOW THAT THE WORK IS OVER? DID NOT RASTAMAN- CULTURE ASKED YOU THIS? I, RAS CARDO ASK- WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR YOUR RETIRED SLAVES- AMERICA? MY REGGAE MUSIC WILL NOT BE USED TO SEPARATE AND DIVIDE AND TO DESTROY THE PEOPLE. THIS MUSIC AS I CREATED IT IS A UNIFICATION OF ALL PEOPLE MUSIC. I WILL ASK- “WHICH SIDE OF HISTORY ARE YOU ON?” REGGAE WILL NOT LEND ITSELF TO THE CONTROL OF BABYLON.THERE WAS A TIME WHEN THE IMMIGRANTS WERE SEEN AS A BLESSING, NOW THEY ARE SEEN AS A BURDEN. JAH WILL DELIVER HIS PEOPLE. WHY DO THE HEATHEN RAGE AND THE PEOPLE IMAGINE VAIN THINGS? XENOPHOBIA IS ON THE RISE, AND TO RASTAFARI, THIS IS NO SURPRISE. REGGAE PROPHESIES FULFILLED.

EXCERPT – WITHOUT PREJUDICE (c) MESSAGE TO AMERICA AND ITS RETIRED SLAVES- REMEMBERING RASTAMAN AND BRETHRENS- CULTURE( JOSEPH HILL), and PETER TOSH. WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE- BEWARE THE SYNAGOGUES OF SATAN HOW MUCH HAVE YOU LEARNED FROM MY 55 YEARS OF REGGAE TRUTHS? RASTAMAN , CULTURE- JOSEPH HILL, HAD ASKED THE QUESTION TO BABYLON MANY TIMES IN HIS SONGS. BABYLON HAS REFUSED TO ANSWER. BUNNY WAILER ASKED- “NUH BOTHER COME WITH YOUR CAMOUFLAGE, REMEMBER THAT A LARGE WE LARGE. NUH BOTHER TRY FI GO SABOTAGE, I AND I STILL IN CHARGE”. TRENCH TOWN REGGAE IS HERE TO STAY FORIVER. PETER TOSH ASKED- “WHERE YOU GONNA RUN, “WHAT YU TRYING TO FIND? DON’T YOU KNOW THAT THE RASTAMAN WILL NEVER GET WEARY IN HIS FIGHT TO LIBERATE AFRICA AND THE AFRICAN PEOPLE. RESPECT THE RASTAMAN CAUSE HE IS THE ONLY TRUE MAN LEFT ON CREATION. THOSE WHO LIVE IN GLASS HOUSES MUST NOT THROW STONES. THE RASTAMAN HAS COME TO DO WHAT IS RIGHT, AND IF BABYLON DO NOT LIKE IT, THEN WE CAN FIGHT EVERYTIME. BLACK PEOPLE IN AMERICA MAY NEVER SEE THIS TRUTH, BUT THE BIBLE IS NOW CLOSED. IT HAS BEEN WRITTEN. REVELATION IS NOW A LIVITY. THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN IN DARKNESS SHOULD HAVE SEEN THE LIGHT OF TRUTH IN THIS TIME.. HOW MANY KILLINGS MUST YOU SEE ON VIDEO TO KNOW THE TRUTH? THE MAN -CULTURE- WAS MUCH LOVED IN AFRICA AND FULLY RESPECTED, BUT HE NEVER FORSOOK JAMAICA. LIKE ALL THE REGGAE TEACHERS AND MESSENGERS WHO HAVE BEEN TO THE HOMELAND, HE SHOWED THE WORLD HOW REGGAE IS THE MOST POWERFUL MUSIC TO UNITE PEOPLES OF ALL RACES, CLASSES, COLORS AND CREEDS. PEOPLE IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY IN AMERICA WOULD HAVE THE WORLD BELIEVE THAT MUSIC SHOULD DIVIDE AND SEPARATE PEOPLE. FOR THE AMOUNT OF MUSIC MADE, SUNG, AND SOLD IN AMERICA BY AND STOLEN FROM BLACK ARTISTS. THE COUNTRY WOULD BE LIKE AN OPEN SEPULCHRE WERE THAT NOT THE CASE. REGGAE AND THE RASTAMAN SAYS- RESPECT! MUCH DESERVED RESPECT. THE RASTAMAN GIVES RESPECT AND COMMANDS THE SAME. NO EXCEPTIONS! BLACK MUSIC IS WHAT KEEPS ANY COUNTRY TOGETHER AMIDST ALL THE INJUSTICES AND EGREGIOUS WRONGS DONE TO BLACK PEOPLE. THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT SOME MUSIC BY WHITE ARTISTS ARE NOT OF EXEMPLARY STANDARDS. THERE ARE MANY WHITE ARTISTS WHO REFUSED TO BE SEPARATED FROM THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT THEIR ARTISTRY. I HAVE A LOT OF RESPECT FOR THOSE WHITE ARTISTS WHO ARE NOT AFRAID TO SPEAK THE TRUTH, AND WHO WILL TEAM UP WITH ANY OTHER ARTIST REGARDLESS OF RACE, CLASS OR CREED. THE GRAMMY’S REFLECT THE NARROW SYSTEM GOVERNED BY COMMERCIALISM. WITH ALL ITS DIVISIVE CATEGORIES, IT DESTROYS THE TRUE ARTISTRY IN MUSIC. I KNOW THAT THE GRAMMY PEOPLE DO NOT HAVE A CLUE AS TO WHAT REGGAE MUSIC IS TRULY ABOUT, AND I WILL NOT RUSH TO ENLIGHTEN THEM. THE GRAMMY’S IS JUST AN ALBUM SELLING MACHINE. REGGAE MUSIC IS ONE GENRE WHICH THE PEOPLE IN THE GRAMMY’S KNOWS NOTHING ABOUT. THE INDUSTRY RELENTLESSLY TRY TO SUPPRESS ITS IMPACT AND TRUTH TO THE PEOPLE. THE RASTAMAN AND ARTIST WILL NOT ALLOW HIMSELF/HERSELF TO BE CONTROLLED AND RAPED BY THE MURDERERS IN THE MUSIC INDUSTRY. THOSE WHO ARE NOW FAMILIAR WITH THE RIFT IN THE STREAMING OF MUSIC SHOULD KNOW WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT. MUSIC IS PERSONAL AND SHOULD NEVER BE CONTROLLED BY CORPORATE PEOPLE UNLESS THEY ARE THE ONES ALSO PERFORMING IT. FOR THOSE WHO ASKED. MUCH RASPECT TO YOU ALL. TRUTH AS ANSWERED.
