These poems depict a journey through a dark landscape, where the political and personal are fused into a geography of disinformation, sex, betrayal and deadly technology. Phelan has produced verbal "snapshots" of a subterranean war-- with fronts in Los Angeles as well as Fallujah-- where the only defense is one's integrity and the stakes may be life itself.

The California DOJ Caught Covering Up Criminal Reports:
Drowning in Garbage
International corporations, seeking markets in developing countries, bring along with them a particular form of “baggage”—waste products and refuse. Coca Cola bottles, Frito bags, Twinkie wrappers—in large part, the packaging solution for multinationals is plastic. The developing world largely lacks the infrastructure in place to deal with this petrochemical polymer influx and plastic garbage has become a major environmental concern, with the impact felt world-wide.
Case in point is the Eastern Garbage Patch, so dubbed by oceanographer Curtis Ebbesmeyer. This patch of marine debris inhabits the Pacific Ocean and consists of small pieces of plastic, some floating and some suspended beneath the surface of the ocean. Estimates of the size of the patch range from 270,000 square miles to 5,800,000 square miles—or twice the size of the continental US.
The garbage patch is thought to have developed due to a gradual accumulation of plastic refuse and was formed over a period of time as a result of the oceanic gyre’s rotational pattern.
The effects on marine wildlife and by extension, all mammals which eat marine wildlife, is of grave concern. Jellyfish are known to indiscriminately consume plastic, and then are eaten by larger fish, which then may be consumed by humans. Endocrine systems may misread plastic as estradiol, resulting in hormone disruption, as well as other known toxic effects.
The Covert Eugenics Agenda: Melodie Scott and Dr. Wouter Basson
It is a generally accepted axiom that one of the primary purposes of government is to protect its citizenry. The protection may manifest in one of two ways—as security against foreign foes or as a system to apprehend and punish members of the citizenry from transgressing against other citizens. This is generally called a “system of justice.”
In a democratic or republican form of government, it is assumed that the rules governing the conduct of citizens are equally applied. In other words, justice is no respecter of persons or status.
So when governments begin to protect certain citizens from culpability for crimes committed against other citizens, the natural question would be—What is going on? Or—Have the rules changed and no one told us?
The Rules Are Changing
Back in the 1990’s, when Dr. Jack Kevorkian challenged the age- old maxim for physicians–”First, do no harm”– and began assisting in the suicides of multiple individuals, the reaction of the legal system was clear and definite. After allegedly being involved in over 130 medically- assisted suicides and experiencing numerous arrests, Jack Kevorkian was found guilty in 1998 of second degree murder in the death of Thomas Youk, who suffered from “Lou Gehrig’s” disease. Kevorkian was sentenced to 25 years in prison. He was released in 2007 after he promised to never assist in another death.
Fast forward to 2015 and we find that physician- assisted suicide is no longer considered much of a crime. In fact, nations are passing physician- assisted suicide laws in droves, even in the face of the abuses of this process being reported in the vanguard nations, such as the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland.
S. Africa's Dr. Death Again Evades Sentencing
In a last minute strategic move by counsel, Dr. Wouter Basson’s sentencing by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA) has again been delayed.
Basson, who was found guilty by the HPCSA in 2013 of acting unprofessionally as the director of the apartheid government’s biological and chemical warfare unit, Project Coast, may have had one of the longest running trials in history. The initial complaints against him were filed with the medical board in 2000, only to be delayed until the conclusion of his criminal trial in Pretoria High Court.
As director of Project Coast in the eighties and early nineties, Basson allegedly provided assassination chemicals to members of the South African Defence Force, and, according to testimony heard in the criminal case, was involved in 229 murders. In addition, he was charged with embezzlement, drug trafficking and possession of illegal drugs. When he was arrested in 1997, he had more than 1000 Ecstasy tablets in his possession.
The judge in the criminal matter, Willie Hartzenberg, acquitted Basson of all charges against him in 2002. There were over 150 witnesses who testified against Dr. Basson. Basson was the sole witness in his defense.
