J.Z. Knight’s Ramtha School Runs Full-Page Ad in Sunday Seattle Times Touting Group’s Gambling Hot Streak

WP_20130407_002The Washington State Lottery gained a 35,000-year-old Egyptian warrior as its newest unofficial (and uninvited) spokesperson over the weekend when the Washington state-based spiritual organization Ramtha School of Enlightenment led by the self-proclaimed channeler J.Z. Knight ran a full-page ad in the Sunday edition of The Seattle Times with the claim that “Ramtha School students win big money at lotteries and casinos.”
The full-color full-page ad appeared in near the end of the newspaper’s front section, just a turn of the page from the popular editorial and opinion pages.
“RSE teaches that luck is an illusion,” the ad copy reads. “The unusual frequency of winnings shows these occurrences are not luck.”
If the name of J.Z. Knight is familiar to our readers it may be because of a series of stories we published last October after videos surfaced showing Knight making slurs and bigoted remarks about Catholics, Mexicans, gays and even organic farmers.
“F— you, you Catholics!” Knight bellowed in one video clip and another clip documented Knight saying, “All Mexicans are not worthy of conscious thought.”
Knight responded in part by claiming that the statement were not hers but were, in fact, comments made by her transdimensional pal Ramtha, the aforementioned Egyptian spirit who Knight claims speaks through her to deliver his wisdom to “students” of the Ramtha School of Enlightenment headquartered in Yelm, Wash.
The release of the videos (since removed from YouTube due to copyright claims by Knight’s corporate entity) created a significant media attention when research revealed that Knight and the RSE had made substantial donations to the Washington State Democratic Party, to Democratic candidates for state office, and to Pres. Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
So, since Knight’s gambling on politics paid off, why not move on to conquer the lottery as well? That is evidently where the RSEs advertisement comes in to help readers reach a conclusion so obvious it’s going to knock you off your chariot: Knight’s ancient North African warlord is also able to teach you to beat the lottery at its own game.
By stitching together a smattering of anecdotes and pictures – one photo is of a couple holding an oversized $50,000 Washington State Lottery winnings check – to tell the story of how RSE “students” are enjoying “an exceptional streak of fortune by cashing lottery tickets and casino winnings of $10,000 or more each.”
The subtext of the ad, of course, is a not-so-subtle call to action for desperate souls to make the pilgrimage to Yelm, fork over thousands of dollars for the privilege of hearing Knight perform bad astral ventriloquism.
At Knight’s RSE, the house always wins.
Update: A spokesperson from the Washington State Lottery told us that to their knowledge neither the use of the Washington State Lottery logo nor the implication that RSE teachings enhance a person’s chances of winning are violations of state law. State Lottery Director of External Affairs Arlen Harris cautioned, however, that “Washington’s Lottery does not endorse the claims of JZ Knight nor has the lottery promoted RSE in our marketing plan.”
Any idea what a full page ad costs?? Just wondering what she/he/it thinks the valuse of the propaganda is.
If you go into any place that sels the lottery, they have a list of past winners up.
JZ has still not stopped being a promoter. ever since her cable tv days. She will do whatever it takes to get and keep the $'s rolling in. It's all about the benjamins. Keep a lookout for the RSE number generator that she will charge for on the site. If you don't get a winning number it is your fault; if you do....well then the teachings worked for you.
Wait a minute....I want that copyright!!!!
I'd love to see a random sample off 100 ramsters who play the lotto compared to a random sample of 100 of the general public who play the lotto to see if one of the groups has a statistically significant winning advantage. I'll bet you (that's a pun) that they would turn out dead even and statistically no better than chance.
RSE's newspaper advertisement is typical hyperbolic talk and has bias because it only cites self reported alleged winners. What about the ramster losers slinking home, tail between the legs, with fists full of losing lotto tickets? They're out the money for RSE as well money blown on the lotto.
Here is the Washington State Lottery main site.
Now, I'll be impressed (wink) if RSE buys a fool page ad in, say, Time and maybe Scientific American. If RSE does that, then the RSE web site could have a banner that proclaims that RSE has been recognized in Time and Scientific American. Never mind the recognition amounted to recognizing RSE's money to buy an ad.
Instead of the tank and field, J.z. takes everyone to the casino. 80,000 profit, includes loses. That is amazing. Its focus in the midst of caos.
Can I tell you how Much I hate J.z. knight and her practices? I am furious over it.
And I have a feeling that ghost app that someone posted about awhile ago, jz MUST be invested because she's pushing that pretty hard too! Also jz is smoking like a fiend again, I guess her power plays are effecting her nerves a bit. Yaaay us, one by one we're making a difference! So happy to see all the new posters stepping into the sunlight! Every day on this side of the asylum is a great one! Good luck to all the diehard ramsters, lord knows you need it!
I wonder if JZ has some sort of deal going with the Nisqually casino?
No wonder the ramsters loooove this, what would you pick, Casiino afternoon, or rambling around a horse pen in the cold and rain?
