Netanyahu-mugshotRonen Bergman Confirms IDF Soldier Deliberately Killed by His Own – by Richard Silverstein, RichardSilverstein.com – “It’s worth noting a few linguistic oddities involved in this Gaza war.  Israelis mobilize Hebrew as a weapon that either obscures the troubling moral dimension; or deliberately distorts reality in order to allow them to feel empowered in their outrage against their enemies.  In this particular case, Israeli soldiers are not ‘captured.’  They are ‘kidnapped.’.. The use of the latter term allows Israelis to claim that their soldiers are not occupiers or invaders, but rather defenders.  No enemy has the right to kidnap Israel’s soldiers whose only sin is defending the homeland.  If the soldiers were ‘captured,’ then it would infer that they are fighters engaged in a war with a legitimate enemy.”

Ukraine pushes back and takes at least three towns in three days off the pro-Russians as Dutch MH17 monitors say crash site now too dangerous to investigate – by Leon Watson and Kieran Corcoran, Dailymail.co.uk – • Ukrainian army and pro-Ukraine rebels have wages bloody offensive against pro-Russian rebels in past days • Lysychansk, in Luhansk, has fallen, while reports that Horlivka and Shakhtarsk in Donetsk also under attack • Unarmed police were due to be sent to recover victims’ remains, but decided rebel-held territory is still too dangerous • Reports that fighting has broken out near the city of Donetsk, with troops today encircling Horlivka • EU team was deployed to impose the rule of law in rebel districts, likely to further inflame relations with Moscow  – “New York-based Human Rights Watch last week condemned what it said was the Ukrainian government forces’ practice of using unguided rockets in populated urban areas… It said that use of the rockets was a violation of international humanitarian law that ‘may amount to war crimes.’ “

war_on_terror_uncle_samAre There Any Terrorist Groups Who AREN’T Paid Foot Soldiers for the U.S. Military-Intelligence Agenda? – by Melissa Melton, ActivistPost.com – “So it is on record that the U.S. government / military-industrial complex has financially backed the ISIS rebels in Syria to the tune of tens of millions of dollars, and key members were trained by our CIA at a secret military base in Jordan back in 2012. (See here and here for starters.) In fact, ISIS is reportedly a joint effort created by the intelligence agencies of the U.S., United Kingdom and Israel, as ISIS leader Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi reportedly received military training from those three agencies as per recent Edward Snowden revelations.” – w/Video: “The Best Enemy Money Can Buy”

‘Public interest’ will allow fracking on World Heritage sites – by Andy McSmith, Independent.co.uk – “In the hope of calming environmentalist fears, the Government has drawn up guidelines that will apply specifically to energy companies wanting to frack in Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, World Heritage sites, National Parks, or on the Norfolk Broads. Each application for a licence to operate in one of those areas will be personally vetted by the Communities Secretary, Eric Pickles. The announcement, which accompanied publication of the guidelines, added: “It is clear that applications should be refused in these areas other than in exceptional circumstances and in the public interest.’ ” – Right.

From Boeing to banking: how Russian sanctions will hit western business -
Sweeping post-MH17 bans will affect companies all over the west – and some of the biggest are the most vulnerable – by Jennifer Rankin, TheGuardian.com – “As it stands, the list includes Kremlin officials, separatists and state companies. But the game could change this week, when the EU is expected to unveil more sweeping “tier three” economic sanctions aimed at entire sections of the economy. This weekend, diplomats have been examining proposals to restrict Russian state-owned companies from accessing capital markets, impose an arms embargo, and issue an export ban on specialist energy technology and “dual use” equipment, such as computers and machinery, that can be put to both civilian and military uses.”

Survivors of massacre in Khuza’a say Israeli forces used Palestinians as human shields – by Yousef Alhelou, MondoWeiss.net – “What happened in Khuza’a was a massacre. Civilians were killed in their homes and while they were fleeing. Even ambulances were not immune. Paramedics report that Israeli forces stopped ambulances that were trying to reach casualties and tried to arrest a number of wounded. Ambulances came under fire despite the coordination by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Scenes of dead bodies scattered in the streets reminiscent of the Sabra and Shatila massacre that took place in two Palestinian refugee camps in 1982 have begun to leak out of the village.”

MH17-Landing_GearStalking Horse for US-led Military Intervention in East Ukraine? Australia and Netherlands Push for Stationing of Police and Soldiers at MH17 Crash Site – by Peter Symonds, GlobalResearch.ca – “The most sinister aspect of the international security force being prepared for Ukraine is that it provides a stalking horse for a US-led military intervention. The contingent will undoubtedly contain intelligence and other operatives who can be relied on to instigate a provocation to provide the pretext for a much larger armed force… In comments reported in the Sydney Morning Herald yesterday, Peter Jennings, executive director of the government-funded Australian Strategic Policy Institute, hinted at just such a scenario when he argued that any AFP contingent had to have military back-up. Whatever the make-up, he said, Australia would ‘have to be prepared to take casualties.’ Of course, any casualties would immediately be exploited to mount a ferocious propaganda campaign demanding military action.”

Judge says government can access everything in a Gmail account — privacy warriors weep – by Brenda Barron, VentureBeat.com – “The subject of this specific search relates to a money laundering investigation. The judge compared this access to the way law enforcement has previously needed to seize documents to see if they even needed to be included in the warrant… However, the decision is quite contrary to what other judges across the country have ordered in the past. Judges who have ruled counter to this order included those in Kansas and the District of Columbia, as was pointed out in an opinion written by Magistrate Judge Gabriel W. Gorenstein of the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.” (emph. added)

Dead_Starfish_GooWhy are massive numbers of sea creatures dying along the west coast right now? – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “According to a study conducted by researchers at Oregon State University, radiation levels in tuna caught off the coast of Oregon approximately tripled in the aftermath of the Fukushima nuclear disaster… Could it be possible that at least some of these deaths are related to what has been happening at Fukushima?.. We do know that fish caught just off the shore from Fukushima have been tested to have radioactive cesium that is up to 124 times above the level that is considered to be safe… And we also know that a study conducted at the University of South Wales concluded that the main radioactive plume of water from Fukushima would reach our shores at some point during 2014.”

Flee Or Die – Israel Takes Away 44% of Gaza Land … Herds Gazans Into Remaining Area – by Washington’s Blog, InformationClearingHouse.info – “What that means on the ground is scenes of extraordinary devastation in places like the Al Shajaya district approaching Gaza’s eastern frontier, and Beit Hanoun in the north. These were crowded neighborhoods less than three weeks ago. Now they have been literally depopulated, the residents joining more than 160,000 internally displaced people in refuges and makeshift shelters. Apartment blocks are fields of rubble, and as I move through this hostile landscape the phrase that keeps ringing in my head is ‘scorched earth.’.. It’s not like Israel didn’t plan this. It told tens of thousands of Palestinians to flee so its air force, artillery and tanks could create this uninhabitable no-man’s land of half standing, burned-out buildings, broken concrete and twisted metal.”

Blaming Russia as ‘Flat Fact’ – The American rush to judgment blaming ethnic Russian rebels and Russian President Putin for the crash of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 continues unabated despite other possible explanations – by Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews.com – “The danger of American “information warfare” that treats every development in the Ukraine crisis as an opportunity to blame Putin and ratchet up tensions with Russia has been apparent since the beginning of the Ukraine crisis – as has been the clear anti-Russian bias of the Times and virtually every other outlet of the mainstream U.S. news media.”

Jeremy_Scahill-tortureJeremy Scahill: White House Censoring What US Public Can Know About Torture Program – Journalist says Obama’s “done a lot of running of defense for the CIA.” – by Andrea Germanos, CommonDreams.org – “And what’s essentially happening is that the White House, at the highest levels, is basically going through and editing what the American people can and can’t read in this report about one of the definitive, moral questions and legal questions of our time, the extent to which we were involved in systematic torture, with lying to lawmakers, with misleading not only Congress but the American people on a wide range of issues that resulted in our country going to war and being involved in systematic acts of torture…”

Who Is Blocking MH17 probe? Why? – by Finian Cunningham, InformationClearingHouse.info – “In the two weeks since the MH17 crash, the Kiev regime forces have killed dozens of civilians from bombardment of towns and villages in the vicinity of the crash site. Up to 30 people were reportedly killed in the town of Gorlovka this week. Heavy violence is also taking place in the towns of Shahktarsk and Torez. Whatever happened to Kiev’s declared ceasefire last week to allow a crash probe to proceed?.. Already, most of the bodies of the nearly 300 victims have been recovered and sent back to the Netherlands for examination, as have the flight recorders, which are currently being analyzed by British aviation experts. That salvage effort, so far, was made possible by the pro-independence militia fighting against Kiev regime forces. Dutch and Malaysian investigators publicly thanked the militia for their efforts.”

Huge section of Gaza city of Beit Hanoun (in the Zionist-declared “buffer zone”) FLATTENED in less than an hour:

Audience Brain Waves Are Being Used to Better Predict YOU – by Heather Callaghan, ActivistPost.com – “Humans are the most heavily studied species on earth – perhaps the most predictable – and arguably, the most easily “trained.” In that sense, this study is showcasing a mass training project – or, a “progress check.” While there is mention of some positive applications for it – like diagnosing neurodevelopmental disorders – it seems that the idea is not for “engaging” the individual but to maintain the attention and predict the actions of the blob of many.”

SS-21_Scarab_MissileKiev Fires Ballistic Missiles into Eastern Ukraine – Pentagon intentionally withholds information on Kiev’s indiscriminate use of ballistic missiles in populated areas – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “What it appears the West is doing by admitting to what is otherwise a crime against humanity by their own definition, is acclimatizing what is left of their impressionable audiences to an increasingly brutal campaign of indiscriminate violence against the whole of eastern Ukraine in an effort to not only break armed resistance, but the civilian population that has rejected Kiev’s authority. The use of such weaponry, just as the Telegraph and others noted before the fall of Libya, hints at tactical weakness and impending strategic defeat – and while the West covers for Kiev’s numerous and multiplying atrocities, the fact that Kiev must resort to increasingly brutal and indiscriminate measures indicates a failure no amount of Western support can undo.”

Wall Street Shadow Banking: You Can’t Taper a Ponzi Scheme: “Time to Reboot” – by Ellen Brown, GlobalResearch.ca – “One reason rates are unlikely to be raised is that they would make the interest tab on the burgeoning federal debt something taxpayers could not support. Higher rates could also implode the monster derivatives scheme. Michael Snyder observes that the biggest banks have written over $400 trillion in interest rate derivatives contracts, betting that interest rates will not shoot up. If they do, it will be the equivalent of an insurance company writing trillions of dollars in life insurance contracts and having all the insureds die at once.”

Henry_Seigman“A Slaughter of Innocents” – Henry Siegman, Leading Voice of U.S. Jewry, on Gaza – Video and Transcript – Democracy Now! – from InformationClearingHouse.info – “Yes, it’s disastrous. It’s disastrous, both in political terms, which is to say the situation cannot conceivably, certainly in the short run, lead to any positive results, to an improvement in the lives of either Israelis or Palestinians, and of course it’s disastrous in humanitarian terms, the kind of slaughter that’s taking place there. When one thinks that this is what is necessary for Israel to survive, that the Zionist dream is based on the slaughter of—repeated slaughter of innocents on a scale that we’re watching these days on television, that is really a profound, profound crisis—and should be a profound crisis—in the thinking of all of us who were committed to the establishment of the state and to its success. It leads one virtually to a whole rethinking of this historical phenomenon.” (emph. added)

Land for gas: Merkel and Putin discussed secret deal could end Ukraine crisis – by Margareta Pagano, Independent.co.uk – “However, these attempts by Ms Merkel to act as a broker between President Putin and the Ukraine’s President, Petro Poroshenko, were put on the back-burner following the shooting down of the MH17 plane in eastern Ukraine… But insiders who are party to the discussions said yesterday that the ‘German peace plan is still on the table and the only deal around. Negotiations have stalled because of the MH17 disaster but they are expected to restart once the investigation has taken place.’ “

Brinkley-LandRoverHomeland Security Agents Raid Home to Seize Land Rover For Violation of EPA Regulations – by Paul Joseph Watson, PrisonPlanet.com – “The feds have given the Brinkley’s 35 days to appeal the seizure but refuse to tell them where the vehicle is located. The DHS has also failed to respond to media requests about the incident… As the Rutherford Institute’s John Whitehead explained in a widely circulated article last month, the DHS is becoming America’s domestic standing army… ‘The menace of a national police force, aka a standing army, vested with so much power cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored,’ wrote Whitehead, before listing numerous examples of how the DHS is instrumental in pushing America’s decline into a militarized police state.”

Russia-Ukraine tensions pose credit default risks: IMF – from Agence France Presse via au.News.Yahoo.com – “Austrian banks are the most exposed relative to their bank asset size. And any problems affecting them could spread through credit channels in the rest of emerging Europe, the report said… In addition, French, Italian and Swedish banks have relatively larger exposures compared with banks in other advanced economies, said the report, which did not identify any bank by name… While the conflict between Kiev and pro-Russian separatists has remained confined to eastern Ukraine, escalation could have global repercussions, the report warned.”

Legarde&YellenWall Street Shadow Banking: You Can’t Taper a Ponzi Scheme: “Time to Reboot” – by Ellen Brown, GlobalResearch.ca – “Addressing the ticking time bomb of the shadow banking system, here is what two of the world’s most powerful women had to say: MS. LAGARDE: . . . You’ve beautifully demonstrated the efforts that have been undertaken . . . in terms of the universe that you have under your jurisdiction. But this universe . . . has generated the creation of parallel universes. And . . . with the toolbox with all the attributes that you have — what can you do about the shadow banking at large?… MS. YELLEN: So I think you’re pointing to something that is an enormous challenge. And we simply have to expect that when we draw regulatory boundaries and supervise intensely within them, that there is the prospect that activities will move outside those boundaries and we won’t be able to detect them. And if we can, we won’t be — we won’t have adequate regulatory tools. And that is going to be a huge challenge to which I don’t have a great answer.” – Nothing to see here, Move along…

The Art of War: NATO’s Global Offensive – by Manlio Dinucci, GlobalResearch.ca – “In Ukraine, while NATO intensifies its training of Kiev’s armed forces — financed by Washington with $33 million — they are reactivating three military airports in the southern region, used by jet fighter-bombers of the alliance. In Poland they have just carried out an exercise of American Polish and Estonian paratroopers, jumping from C-130J troop carrying aircraft that arrived from the German base at Ramstein. In Hungary, Romania, Bulgaria and Lithuania various NATO military operations are going on, with AWACS radar planes, F-16 fighters and warships in the Black Sea.” – Etc., ad nauseum…

BollwormBollworms develop resistance to Bt cotton, destroy GM crop fields in Pakistan – by Julie Wilson, NaturalNews.com – ” ‘All Bt varieties of cotton have failed to kill bollworms and live up to their agricultural success stories. We have found four separate patches in our fields where Army bollworm and mealy bug have attacked the crop,’ said Chaudhry Gohar Ali, a cotton grower in central Pakistan.”

Seizing Control of Our Destinies – by Julian Rose, ActivistPost.com – “We have arrived here because of the accumulated evidence which overwhelmingly proves that the status quo is a fraud – designed to strip us of our powers of judgement and the determination to act on that judgement… We who have become ‘aware’ – are the leaders of the age. We must live up to this reality. We know that the status quo is beyond redemption. So we must take this knowledge to be the signal to build that which will redeem our collective Human status; which will carry us through the apocalypse. We know what the ingredients are that will make our arks self sustaining. We know what we need in order to come alive again. Now we must put them all together – for that is where they belong.”

This Is What Is Going To Happen If Ebola Comes To America – by Michael Snyder, InvestmentWatchBlog.com – “If the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history reaches the United States, federal law permits “the apprehension and examination of any individual reasonably believed to be infected with a communicable disease”.  These individuals can be “detained for such time and in such manner as may be reasonably necessary”.  In other words, the federal government already has the authority to round people up against their will, take them to detention facilities and hold them there for as long as they feel it is “reasonably necessary”.  In addition, as you will read about below, the federal government has the authority “to separate and restrict the movement of well persons who may have been exposed to a communicable disease to see if they become ill”.  If you want to look at these laws in the broadest sense, they pretty much give the federal government the power to do almost anything that they want with us in the event of a major pandemic. (emph. added)Does the “federal government actually have the authority, or do “they” merely CLAIM it?

Revelations of German Pilot: Shocking Analysis of the “Shooting Down” of Malaysian MH17. “Aircraft Was Not Hit by a Missile” – by Peter Haisenko, GlobalResearch.ca – “I recommend to click on the little picture to the left (shown below). You can download this photo as a PDF in good resolution. This is necessary, because that will allow you understand what I am describing here. The facts speak clear and loud and are beyond the realm of speculation: The cockpit shows traces of shelling! You can see the entry and exit holes. The edge of a portion of the holes is bent inwards. These are the smaller holes, round and clean, showing the entry points most likely that of a 30 millimeter caliber projectile. The edge of the other, the larger and slightly frayed exit holes showing shreds of metal pointing produced by the same caliber projectiles. Moreover, it is evident that at these exit holes of the outer layer of the double aluminum reinforced structure are shredded or bent – outwardly! Furthermore, minor cuts can be seen, all bent outward, which indicate that shrapnel had forcefully exited through the outer skin from the inside of the cockpit. The open rivets are are also bent outward.” – See this article for analysis of the munitions used in the attack and how they affected the flight. This doesn’t explain the u-turn taken by MH17 prior to its disintegration – perhaps a missile strike did not bring the plane down, resulting in the evident fighter attack.

Russia bans Polish fruit and vegetable in apparent retaliation for sanctions – by Polina Devitt, Reuters.com – “Polish fruit growers said the ban was political, although Russia denied this. Moscow has frequently been accused in the past of using sanitary inspections to restrict trade from countries with which it has political disputes. The EU said it was studying the announcement, describing it as a surprise.”

Is your HPV-unvaccinated teen ‘unacceptable’? The CDC thinks so – by Michael Bedar, NaturalNews.com – “Do phrases such as ‘unacceptable’ and ‘blame for this’ sound like terms of independent thinking, healthy debate and the freedom to come to one’s own conclusions?.. One research topic would ask, is the prevalence of human papillomavirus and cervical cancer already being well reduced by the Pap test and lowered smoking rates?.. Cervical cancer has already dropped by at least 70% between 1955 and 1992, due to the combination of the Pap test and reductions in smoking, according to the American Cancer Society.”

EU on high alert as Germany agrees to accept Ebola patients – from RT.com – “A German hospital in Hamburg agreed to accept patients following a request from the World Health Organization (WHO), Deutsche Welle reports. Doctors assure that the utmost precautions will be taken to make sure the disease does not spread during treatment. The patients will be kept in an isolation ward behind several airlocks, and doctors and nurses will wear body suits with their own oxygen supplies that will be burned every three hours… German authorities were expecting the arrival of Sheik Umar Khan, an Ebola expert who caught the disease while treating patients in Sierra Leone, but he died before he could be transported.” – WTF is WHO thinking in requesting these transfers for treatment? Have they lost their tiny minds? Or can there be a larger plan at work?

Russian-BUKWhistleblower: U.S. Satellite Images Show Ukrainian Troops Shooting Down MH17 – Source tells award winning reporter Washington lying about responsibility for tragedy – by Paul Joseph Watson, Infowars.com – “In a related development, audio experts who conducted a study into the authenticity of a recording released by Ukrainian authorities which implicated Russian-backed rebels as being responsible for the missile attack on MH17 concluded that the tape was fabricated… ‘The tape’s second fragment consists of three pieces but was presented as a single audio recording. However, a spectral and time analysis has showed that the dialog was cut into pieces and then assembled. Short pauses in the tape are very indicative: the audio file has preserved time marks which show that the dialog was assembled from various episodes, the expert said,’ reports ITAR-TASS.

What Did US Spy Satellites See in Ukraine? – by Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews.com – “But here we are yet again with the MSM relying on unverified claims being made by the Kiev regime about something as sensitive as whether Russia provided sophisticated anti-aircraft missiles – capable of shooting down high-flying civilian aircraft – to poorly trained eastern Ukrainian rebels… This charge is so serious that it could propel the world into a second Cold War and conceivably – if there are more such miscalculations – into a nuclear confrontation. These moments call for the utmost in journalistic professionalism, especially skepticism toward propaganda from biased parties.”

High-Level NSA Whistleblower Says Blackmail Is a Huge – Unreported – Part of Mass Surveillance – from RINF.com – “(William) Binney explained to us the importance of this story: ‘Being able to blackmail people is one major aspect of bulk/mass collection that has not been talked about. E.g., they could use this data to blackmail members of governments around the world. But, surely just to get them to do what they wanted them to do. Just like J. Edgar Hoover did. This is on top of the ability to do world-wide industrial espionage.”

Steve_Simmons-Navy_VetNavy sailor exposed to Fukushima radiation reveals depth of government cover-up – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – ” ‘[In] November 2011, I noticed something was wrong,” stated Simmons during a recent interview, as quoted by ENENews.com. ‘The black-out was the first thing… I started dealing with
gastrointestinal issues, at first I thought I was coming down with a
stomach bug… Fevers as high as 102.9°F… January 2012 was the first time I
was hospitalized… [They] sent me home with a sinus infection.’.. ‘Three days later I was readmitted to the hospital because my lymph nodes were swelling… that’s when my legs buckled and the muscle weakness started to onset… it’s been ascending from legs, trunk, arms, hands… I can’t really use the muscles much at all.’ “

What Corporate Media and Corporate Latino Politicians Won’t Tell You About Central American Child Refugees – by Bruce A. Dixon, BlackAgendaReport.com – “Just like the black faces in high places, the Latino political class doesn’t represent its people to or within the system, they are actually one of the faces the capitalist system presents to the Latino community. So it has fallen to the Latino political class to defend the president, who by now has deported more people than any president before him, and to defend the US empire by obfuscating the reasons those child refugees are here in the first place.”

Military@the_GoalHow America’s Sporting Events Have Turned into Mass Religious Events to Bless Wars and MilitarismThe religious reverie—repeated in sports arenas—is used to justify our bloated war budget and endless wars. – by Chris Hedges, Alternet.org – “And no wonder it is hard to distinguish the fantasy of a game from the fantasy of the military. Life in the Army or the Marines begins to look like spending a few years at Fenway. And that is why the military invests so much in sponsoring sporting events. Between innings Saturday, the screen above my head flashed segments called “U.S. Army Presents Top Prospects” that showcased promising ballplayers. Recruitment ads appeared at intervals. And the logo “Discover a Stronger Future. There’s Strong. There’s Army Strong” was ubiquitous. The Pentagon spends some $4.7 billion a year on recruiting, advertising, public affairs and psychological operations, according to a 2009 report published by The Associated Press. And much of that is targeted at the audiences of professional sports.”

Pictures of Neo-Nazi Crimes Supported By the US (warning – Extremely Graphic) – from Kawther.info – “The fatalities in Shuja’iyya included 17 children, 14 women and four elderly, whereas the wounded, estimated at a total of 210, included 62 children, 32 women and 15 elderly, according to the ministry… The IOF attacked the ambulances when they tried to reach victims. At least one medic was killed. Despite the efforts by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to coordinate ambulance access, dozens of people were still under the rubble or on streets while IOF stalled allowing ambulances to reach them until ICRC secured a humanitarian truce for two hours, ending at 3:30PM.”

HillarySOSFrom the Stop-Hilary-for-President Desk: Clintons Reinstigated the Cold War with Russia – by John V. Walsh, DissidentVoice.org – “From watching the Clintons in the White House for eight years and from Hillary’s hawkish record as Senator and Secretary of State, there can be little doubt that her views are heartfelt. She remains a lethal admixture of neocon and humanitarian imperialist views, an American Exceptionalist, giddy with American military power, arrogantly confident that “our values” are universal and determined that no other power, however peaceful, will achieve the military or economic might to stand up to the U.S.”

Irrefutable proof that Big Pharma is a criminal racket: Bribery, scientific fraud, felony crimes and more – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “Those of us who have long been describing the pharmaceutical industry as a “criminal racket” over the last few years have been wholly vindicated by recent news. Drug and vaccine manufacturer Merck was caught red-handed by two of its own scientists faking vaccine efficacy data by spiking blood samples with animal antibodies. GlaxoSmithKline has just been fined a whopping $3 billion for bribing doctors, lying to the FDA, hiding clinical trial data and fraudulent marketing.”

Rally-Calif-against-cop-violenceDozens of people in California have rallied to protest against police brutality in the United States in the wake of recent killings (w/video) – from PressTV.ir – “Police officers in California rarely face punishment in shooting deaths… On Thursday (in New York), Eric Garner, a father of six, died after police officers pinned him to the ground and held him in a chokehold… At least four police officers brought down the man, who was begging cops to let him breathe as he helplessly (lay) on the ground.”

Kiev Attacks Donetsk, Headquarters for MH17 Response – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “With a renewed assault by Kiev and its NATO backers on the very city selected to coordinate the response to the MH17 disaster, it appears an effort is underway to delay any meaningful investigation or resolution to the disaster, thus prolonging the politically-charged climate of anger, emotions, and baseless accusations the West has been brazenly exploiting, for as long as possible… It was the US itself that first demanded a ceasefire after the downing of MH17…”

Russian-MH17_videoMH17 Show and Tell: It’s the West’s Turn (w/video) – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – “Indeed, the evidence suggested Kiev’s regime deployed anti-air missile systems in Donetsk in and around the area where flight MH17 crashed. They also provided information regarding Ukrainian warplanes trailing flight MH17, the possibility of an air-to-air attack on MH17, and inconsistencies with Ukrainian air traffic control… There were a series of questions asked throughout the presentation – nothing was “concluded” – which is in direct contrast to the West which has shown the world nothing in terms of evidence, but has drawn many inflammatory, politically-motivated conclusions.”

New World Disorder: Emerging Division Between East And West Threatens To Plunge The Globe Into Chaos – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “At this point, it seems clear that Russia plans to permanently decouple from the U.S. economy and the U.S. financial system. Just today we learned that Vladimir Putin plans to make Russia less dependent on U.S. companies such as IBM and Microsoft, and any future rounds of sanctions are likely to cause even more damage to U.S. firms that do business in Russia… But potentially much more troubling for the U.S. economy is the startling deterioration in the relationship between the Obama administration and China.  Some analysts are even describing this as ‘a tipping point’…”

Federal appeals court panel deals major blow to health law – from WashingtonPost.com – “The government immediately announced it was seeking an “en banc” hearing in the D.C. case, requesting that it be heard before the entire appeals court. The question ultimately may end up at the Supreme Court. But if subsidies for half the states are barred, it represents a potentially crippling blow to the health-care law, which relies on the subsidies to make insurance affordable for millions of low- and middle-income Americans.

MH17-passportsMH17: Are Pristine and Expired Passports a Smoking Gun for a False Flag? (w/videos) – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “The first problem with this is that, clearly, a number of these Passports have been ‘hole-punched’, in the upper left-hand corner, and ‘clipped’ (triangular cut-out from right-hand center front cover) indicating that they are either expired,  and are invalid for travel – making it impossible that any of these decommissioned passports could be used to travel internationally at the flight’s port of Departure in Amsterdam… The clip which ran across all US and western media outlets was only a partial clip, however, showing the passports to viewers in order to establish the human connection to the crash site… The full clip, which did not make it to US and world audiences show this pile of pristine passports being taken out of the rear trunk (or boot) of this man’s motor vehicle, suggesting that these items may have been planted at the scene, or used to fulfill a media image required to craft the early stages of this story.

California Halts Injection of Fracking Waste, Warning it May Be Contaminating Aquifers – State’s drought has forced farmers to rely on groundwater, even as California aquifers have been intentionally polluted due to exemptions for oil industry – by Abrahm Lustgarten, ProPublica.org – “The state’s Division of Oil and Gas and Geothermal Resources on July 7 issued cease and desist orders to seven energy companies warning that they may be injecting their waste into aquifers that could be a source of drinking water, and stating that their waste disposal ‘poses danger to life, health, property, and natural resources.’ The orders were first reported by the Bakersfield Californian, and the state has confirmed with ProPublica that its investigation is expanding to look at additional wells.”

Israeli_soldier-w-TankIsraeli minister warns the country ‘will take over the whole Gaza Strip’ if necessary, as latest airstrikes kill 28 members of Palestinian family – from Dailymail.co.uk – with many photos

High doses of antidepressants increase self-harm in children: Harvard – by Michael Beda, NaturalNews.com – 1 out of every 13 U.S. children is prescribed psychiatric pharmaceutical drugs. Pharmaceuticals artificially boost brain levels of serotonin, a boost that is bound to crash eventually… However, if the brain’s nutritional needs and imbalances are caught and understood before being worsened by medication, natural therapies nutrition can help restore the brain’s proper neurological secretions… Even CBS reported, “The [Harvard] findings are likely to inform an ongoing debate in psychiatry…”

Turkish PM Cuts Ties With US, Mulls De-Dollarization With Russia – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “In 2013, the volume of trade between the countries amounted to 32.7 billion dollars. Russia is the second (after the EU) among foreign trade partners of Turkey, and Turkey – the eighth largest trade partner of Russia…  As one of the measures to stimulate the development of trade and economic relations between Russia and Turkey, the Turkish side proposes to proceed in mutual national currencies. The question now being discussed at the site of the bilateral Working Group on banking and financial cooperation.”

Jacksonville Implements Orwellian Police State, Going to 18,000 Homes Looking for Drugs and Guns – by John Vibes, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “In addition to the aspects of the project which are being funded through asset forfeiture, the department is also asking for tax funding of over 3 million dollars for new officers.  The stated goal of this program is to decrease violent crime, most of which is related to the drug trade.  However, the violence of the drug war is a direct result of prohibition, and the best way to stop that violence is to end prohibition.”

Danny_Ayalon“Most” killed in Gaza “deserved it” even though they were children and civilians, says Israel’s Danny Ayalon – by Ali Abunimah, ElectronicIntifada.net – ” ‘If you compare the situation in Gaza to the situation in Syria today,’ (Deputy Foreign Minister) Ayalon said, ‘where the Assad regime just mercilessly butchers people and children there is a big difference and I would say that most of the people that were hit in Gaza deserved it as they were just armed terrorists.’

Demon-of-MH17What Putin Knows – Putin Knows What Happened to MH17, But He’s Not Saying–Yet …. – by Mike Whitney, InformationClearingHouse.info – “So, one way or another, we’re going to know what happened.  The US and Russia have the data they need to figure out where the missile was launched and who launched it. They probably even have recordings of  communications between Air Traffic Tower and the airliner. They know it all, but they’ll probably be cautious about what they reveal and when they reveal it… My guess, is that Putin will drag his feet to see whether the investigation is thorough, transparent and even-handed or an elaborate hoax used to discredit him in the eyes of his trading partners.”

Government Confiscation of Dormant Assets – by Ted Bauman, ActivistPost.com – “The problem is that states return less than a quarter of this supposedly ‘unclaimed’ property to its rightful owners. One of the most egregious is California. California law used to say assets were unclaimed if the owner had no contact with the business for 15 years. But during various state budget crises, the waiting period was reduced to seven years, then five, then three. Legislators even tried for one year… ‘California dumps the money into the general fund — and spends it. The Golden State became so addicted to spending people’s’old,’ as it were, that for years it simply stopped sending notices to the rightful owners.”

The Trans-Pacific Partnership and “Police Militarization”: The Coming Calamity, The Coming Resistance – by Devon Douglas-Bowers, GlobalResearch.ca – “We are beginning to resist against the secretive trade deals and police militarization, but we must go further.

The calamity may soon be coming, the question is, will you resist?”

US Intelligence: Russia Didn’t Do It – by Paul Craig Roberts, InformationClearingHouse.info – “So where are the black boxes? If the Malaysians gave them to the British, Whitehall will tell whatever lie Washington demands. If Washington’s British puppet actually has the black boxes, we will never know the truth. Judging from the hostile and unsupported accusations against Russia from the bought-and-paid-for Netherlands prime minister, we can expect the Dutch also to lie for Washington. Apparently, Washington has succeeded in removing the “investigation” from the ICAO’s hands and placing the investigation in the hands of its puppets… We can safely conclude that the obfuscations are just beginning, and like 9 /11 and John F. Kennedy’s assassination, there will be no alternative to individuals forming their own opinion from researching the evidence. The United States government will never come clean, and the British government and presstitute media will never stop telling lies for Washington.”

Obama (wants) To Open Border To Honduran Refugees – by Frances Robles, GovtSlaves.info – “If approved, the plan would direct the government to screen thousands of children and youths in Honduras to see if they can enter the United States as refugees or on emergency humanitarian grounds.

Ukraine – MH17 like Shoot Down Predicted a Month Ago plus Russian Defense Chief in English – by Michael Collins – “Elena is not part of the propaganda war. She’s not making arguments for this or that interpretation of the MH17 tragedy. She is simply describing a reckless air combat tactic used by Ukraine’s military a month before the airliner was shot from the sky… This video raises a very interesting question. Were commercial flights routed over Ukraine to provide Ukraine’s air force with cover in order to attack military and civilian targets?”

Israel Transforms Tunnels into Gas Chambers – by Roi Tov, RoiTov.com – “Prime Minister Netanyahu, every year on Holocaust Day, your nation cries crocodile tears for the gas chambers used during WWII. Shoah, you call it, a Biblical calamity.+ Your use of improvised gas chambers not only revokes your right to do so, but also defines you and your army as war criminals. Your place is in a trial chamber in Nuremberg.” – At the bottom of the article, Tov, who says he’s trapped in Bolivia, says his situation is rapidly deteriorating.

He suggested the downing of Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was a conspiracy aimed at ‘framing up Russia that went terribly wrong’.”

Vandana_ShivaFine Print of the Food Wars: Monsanto and Biotech Industry Pushing for World Food Monopoly Through Seed Supply – by Dr. Vandana Shiva, GlobalResearch.ca – “Currently they are attempting to dismantle national laws on biosafety in India, Pakistan, the European Union, across Africa and Latin America. In the United States, they are distorting the Constitution by suing state governments that have passed labelling laws for GMO (genetically modified) foods by claiming that the citizens’ right to know what they eat is superseded by the biotech industry’s right to impose hazardous foods on uninformed consumers as the freedom of speech of a corporation, as if it were a natural person.”

Marching To Hell – by freefall, ZenGardner.com – “The march to hell leading to world domination is a tricky business. The karmic backlash to murderous actions will result in repercussions of equal magnitude… The end of Palestine will be the anchor that inevitably takes Israel down with it. But unfortunately, this could also bring Pike’s apocalyptic vision closer to fruition… Only when we fully understand that all religions separate us from the true spirituality that connects us to everyone and everything will we not fall into their final trap; a one world religion that will be even worse than the ones we have now… If that is possible.”

Comprehensive Report: MH17 Verdict: Real Evidence Points to US-Kiev Cover-up of Failed False Flag – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “This account is also consistent with the location of key pieces of wreckage scattered over the wider crash site radius. It shows M17 turning back on itself, after being struck initially. If this was the final path, then it completely disapproves the US (US State Department) conspiracy theory that a rebel-controlled BUK missile hit the plane head-on from Snezhnoye (Snizhne). This U-turn then also helps explain why Kiev’s first ‘leaked conversation of the rebels’ (see ‘Kiev’s Botch Social Media Audio’ below) tried to place the rebel’s BUK battery at a completely different location in Debaltzevo, a few kilometers northwest of the main crash site at Grabovo. However, that would not explain the U-turn, which they tried so much to conceal – for it points to the Ukrainian jet fighter.”

GMO Food Crops in India: BJP Government Grants the “Green Light” to Monsanto and the Biotech Conglomerates – by Colin Todhunter, GlobalResearch.ca – “The GEAC has reportedly approved 60 out of 70 applications for the field trials of GM crops, despite the Supreme Court appointed Technical Expert Committee (TEC) already having submitted its report based on sound science and factual data that strongly recommends the stopping of all such field trials.”

Blockading the Truth: Obama’s Big Lie About Gaza – by Chris Floyd, InfomationCleraringHouse.info – “The July 8 ITIC report also divulged why Hamas launched its first rocket fire at Israel in more than 19 months on July 7: On that night Israeli forces had bombed and killed 6 Hamas members in Gaza. The ITIC report includes a picture of the six Hamas members. Thus, a report from an authoritative Israeli source described the provocation for the resumption of rocket fire: Hamas rocket fire began only after Israeli forces had engaged in nearly a month of military operations in violation of the ceasefire agreement and had killed 6 Hamas members in Gaza. …”

For example jeans are banned, any fashion is banned. T-shirts with numbers and letters on them are banned. Women must cover their heads, and dark colours are preferred for clothes,’ said a civil servant who declined to be identified.”

Barack Obama Signs Budget Control ActU.S. Government To Pull Foreign Aid In El Salvador For Refusing Monsanto Seeds – by Arjun Walia, TheRakyatPost.com – “Hundreds of other farmers have successfully produced high-quality seed that is adapted to the specific soil and climate conditions of their country. Using indigenous seeds simply makes more sense… If you didn’t know, Monsanto controls the majority of seeds all over the world. In India alone, thousands of farmers lost their livelihoods, and many farmers all over the world have filed lawsuits against Monsanto… ‘In defining seed as their creation and invention, corporations like Monsanto shape the Global Intellectual Property and Patent Laws so that they can prevent farmers from seed saving and sharing, forcing them into dependence on their patented GMO seeds.’ – Dr. Vandana Shiva (source)… The president of the El Salvadorian Center for Appropriate Technologies (CESTA) criticized the US negotiating position and says the country should back away from its demand.”

Washington Is Escalating the Orchestrated Ukrainian “Crisis” to War – by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts, GlobalResearch.ca – “Russia and China are disadvantaged in their conflict with Washington.  Russia and China have emerged from tyranny. People in both countries were influenced by American cold war propaganda.  Both countries have educated people who think that America has freedom, democracy, justice, civil liberty, economic wellbeing and is a welcoming friend of other countries that want the same thing…  This is a dangerous delusion. Washington has an agenda.  Washington has put in place a police state to suppress its own population, and Washington believes that history has conveyed the right to Washington to exercise hegemony over the world.”

neanderthal&girl“Out of Africa” Theory Officially Debunked – from AtlanteanGardens.blogspot.com – “Scientific evidence refuting the theory of modern humanity’s African genesis is common knowledge among those familiar with the most recent scientific papers on the human Genome, Mitochondrial DNA and Y-chromosomes. Regrettably, within mainstream press and academia circles, there seems to be a conspicuous – and dare we say it – deliberate vacuum when it comes to reporting news of these recent studies and their obvious implications.”

The Propaganda and Politics of MH17 – by Eric Draitser, ActivistPost.com – “Additionally, one must examine the claims made and repeated ad nauseam by Kiev that it had no military aircraft in the skies when MH17 was shot down. From July 17 (the day of the incident) until July 21 (the day Russia’s Ministry of Defense presented its intelligence), the Kiev regime continually denied allegations that its military aircraft were in the vicinity of MH17. However, once Russia’s MoD provided the international press with evidence refuting that claim and showing that not only were Ukrainian jets in the vicinity, but they were within firing range, magically that talking point ceased to be repeated. In other words, every aspect of the Kiev regime’s narrative has been thoroughly discredited. “

William_Binney2-captThe ultimate goal of the NSA is total population control – At least 80% of all audio calls, not just metadata, are recorded and stored in the US, says whistleblower William Binney – that’s a ‘totalitarian mentality’ – by Antony Loewenstein, Guardian.co.uk – “One of Europe’s leading web creators, Lena Thiele, presented her stunning series Netwars in London on the threat of cyber warfare. She showed how easy it is for governments and corporations to capture our personal information without us even realising… Thiele said that the US budget for cyber security was US$67 billion in 2013 and will double by 2016. Much of this money is wasted and doesn’t protect online infrastructure. This fact doesn’t worry the multinationals making a killing from the gross exaggeration of fear that permeates the public domain.”

Tom_Vilsack-FTThe Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP) and the Corporate Hijack of Europe – by Colin Todhunter, GlobalResearch.ca – “Science is a common language… we will be working towards making sure that whatever agreements are reached, they are consistent with sound science.”-Tom Vilsack, Monsanto stooge – “Coming from the GMO biotech industry, or its political mouthpieces, the term “sound science” rings extremely hollow. The industry conceals the data produced by its research under the guise of ‘commercial confidentiality’ [5], while independent research highlights the very serious dangers of its products [6,7]. It has also engaged in fakery [8], bribery [9] and intimidation [10] as well as the the distortion [11] and censorship of science [12]. If “sound science” is to be held in such high regard, why resort to these methods?”

The Return of George Orwell – Big Brother’s War on Palestine, Ukraine and the Truth – by John Pilger, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Since the invasion of Iraq – the exemplar of an act of unprovoked aggression the Nuremberg prosecutor Robert Jackson called “the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole” – Blair and his mouthpiece and principal accomplice, Alastair Campbell, have been afforded generous space in the Guardian to rehabilitate their reputations. Described as a Labour Party “star”, Campbell has sought the sympathy of readers for his depression and displayed his interests, though not his current assignment as advisor, with Blair, to the Egyptian military tyranny.”

Brazil-Resisting_evictionAmid Federal Land Grab in Brazil, Whole Towns Evicted at Gunpoint – by Alex Newman, TheNewAmerican.com – “Reporters on the scene and even federal lawmakers suspect bloodshed may be near. The government, however, has vowed to expel the communities at any cost, threatening those who refuse to comply with criminal charges and even confiscation of what little remains of their personal property. Rubber bullets, tear gas, and threats of real bullets and prosecution have all been employed to forcibly remove the locals, whom the government continues to dehumanize as ‘invaders’ and ‘intruders.’.. Critics and local residents have accused the government of Brazil of mass corruption, saying the end goal is to smash private property ownership and all potential resistance — starting with the rural population. They argue, among other points, that federal authorities are doing the bidding of foreign interests and are in cahoots with the UN, massive international corporations, Western-based non-governmental organizations like Greenpeace, and other interests.”

usd-to-sdr Impact of IMF SDRs for Commercial Trade – by James Hall, ActivistPost.com – “Allowing the IMF to manage the economic outcomes of all trading nations’ commerce is like putting the fox in charge of the chicken coop. The success or shortcomings of individual nation’s trade transactions need to rest upon the economic fundamentals of the deal, not compliance with IMF rules and regulations. The impact of using SDRs translates into the loss of sovereignty.’

Iraq Inherits Israeli Practices via US Occupation – by Haifa Zangana, BrussellsTribunal.org – “The practices of the Zionist Regime are shown in many forms; it begins by describing Arabs of all religions as terrorists, and ends by their arrest and torture, to add to the apartheid practices of racial physical segregation. Palestinian cities are infested with checkpoints and surrounded by them. Cities are no more. The aim of this policy is to force people to abandon their land and emigrate. All of this happens under the banner of “Israel is a democratic, peace-loving country”, if not “Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East”… This, in many ways, is similar to what has been taking place in the “New Iraq”. Recall that Israeli brutal practices had been part and parcel of the practices towards Iraqis in the first nine years of the US/UK occupation of Iraq from 2003 to 2011. Israeli ways were adopted, and surpassed, in training of the Iraqi army and the Iraqi Special Forces, in interrogation and torture of detainees and above all in collective punishment and segregation. This same policy continued and is still applicable now by the Iraqi regime…”

How the War on Drugs and the War on Terror Merged Into One Disastrous War on All Americans – The consequences are measured in lives, limbs and cash. – by Alex Kane, Alternet.org – “In November 2009, Senator Russ Feingold (D-WI), questioned Department of Justice official David Kris about the Patriot Act being used to execute the war on drugs. The assistant attorney general’s response was telling: ‘This authority here on the sneak-and-peek side, on the criminal side, is not meant for intelligence. It’s for criminal cases. So I guess it’s not surprising to me that it applies in drug cases.’  Feingold responded by pointing out that the Patriot Act was sold as needed to fight terrorism, not ‘regular, run-of-the-mill criminal cases.’.. One facet of the ever-growing trend toward militarized police forces is the use of informants to figure out which houses to raid. The informants used in the vast majority of drug cases are typically people involved in the drug trade who have escaped a jail sentence—or had a sentence reduced—at the price of helping the police.”

The CDC and HHS Are Planning for Mass Casualties in the United States – by Dave Hodges, TheCommonSenseShow.com – “While appearing on Hannity, Sheriff Joe Arpaio stated that the border patrol crisis is a deliberate ploy designed to force amnesty. I would suggest to Arpaio that with the definitive spread of illnesses among this population, there may be a much more sinister possibility such as the one that one of Arizona’s most prominent physicians, Dr. Jane Orient spoke of when I interviewed her 10 days ago. Dr. Orient used words such as “collusion” and “bioweapons attack” during the course of our conversation. Dr. Orient expressed concern that the Border Patrol is being threatened with prosecution for speaking out about the looming health crisis.”

From the If-You-Read-One-Whole-Article-This-Week Desk: Germany Pivoting East – by Dr. Jim Willie, Gold-Eagle.com – “Berlin is outraged by clear USGovt spying, and in process of conducting a Gold audit among their population. Germany is building motives to split from the Euro Monetary Union (common Euro currency) by forging stronger open ties with Russia & China. The justification is becoming plainly laid out, in four perceived indictment charges. The Jackass believes Germany will break from US/UK and its USDollar fiat currency regime over four primary thorny issues. The four are major indictments, all extremely serious, all indicative of a decayed system and morally bankrupt leadership. The charges are coming into view, highlighting fundamental commercial, philosophical, and ethical conflicts that distinguish the two nations (considering US/UK a single entity). The issues center on the following key differences: 1) Good relations with Russia and continued energy supply from Gazprom 2) Displeasure over planned Draghi Euro Central Bank bond monetization 3) Disgust over NSA espionage by USGovt, with benefit for US corporations 4) Damage to German population from gold price suppression.

The ability to distract from Western-backed genocides occurring simultaneously across the world as well as domestic issues and the world economic depression has been conveniently provided by the Malaysian flight shootdown.’

Notable Anti-Drone Activist and Grandmother Sentenced to Prison for Photographing Protest – Grady Flores was sentenced to jail for violating an order of protection after being part of a demonstration against drones – by Jeff Stein, Alternet.org – “When the trial started, Ricks said, he didn’t think it would be possible for Grady Flores to get the full year-long sentence… ‘I thought maybe two months, maybe four,’ Ricks said, ‘and then I thought, ‘Maybe he’ll make an example and slam her.’ ‘.. Prosecutors and Judge David Gideon have defended the one-year sentence, saying that they had no other way to punish someone who repeatedly broke the law… Doing so was necessary to show that the court would ‘no longer tolerate her willful actions in violation of the orders of this court,’ Judge Gideon wrote in a decision explaining the sentencing.”

Ogallala-Aquifer-DepletionNBC News declares ‘billions could starve’ as America’s water aquifers run dry – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – “The Ogallala aquifer has been used up at an unsustainable pace since the early 1980s when big agriculture began using automated center pivot irrigation devices. Once farmers started putting these devices into widespread use, the Ogallala became a center for abuse, precipitously drained year after year. The Ogallala is unique; it cannot be replenished by surface water or precipitation. When it’s used up, there’s no more water to go around.”

Was MH17 Sabotaged By An Israeli Security Team At Amsterdam Schiphol Airport? – by Yoichi Shimatsu, Rense.com –  third, the destruction of MH17 serves as a warning to the governments of Malaysia and Australia to cease any further investigation into the strong possibility that MH370 was hijacked by the Israeli military. MH370 was carrying engineers, designers, prototypes, specifications and a chip foundry for the world’s smallest microchip, the KL series. The leading edge technology is needed for Israel’s crash program to build a drone army, especially mini-robots capable of infiltrating Iran’s nuclear plants. (This writer has extensively researched a nd uncovered Israeli involvement in the MH370 hijacking at rense.com)”

Pro-Russia rebel commander suggests passengers died days before Malaysian flight – from AP via WashingtonTimes.com – “The pro-rebel website Russkaya Vesna on Friday quoted Igor Girkin as saying he was told by people at the crash site that ‘a significant number of the bodies weren’t fresh,’ adding that he was told they were drained of blood and reeked of decomposition.”

UK banks ‘have much to fear’: competition watchdog set to probe Lloyds, RBS, HSBC and Barclays – by Stefan Wermuth, RINF.com – “In theory, an inquiry could order a full-scale break up of Britain’s largest banks. But such comprehensive reform is rare. Following the inquiry, the CMA will most likely demand banks cultivate new networks of branches and adopt greater levels of transparency with respect to their charges… This planned investigation is the 10th analysis of the market since Don Cruickshank was commissioned to examine the industry by then-Prime Minister Gordon Brown in 1999.”

Slavyansk-DefenseFascist Atrocities Mount as US-backed Regime Assaults Eastern Ukraine – by Alex Lantier, RINF.com – “The Odessa diocese confirmed that Ukrainian nationalists have threatened, beaten or kidnapped several Orthodox priests, many of whom they consider too close to Moscow.

Israel Awakens the Palestine It Tried to Crush – by Ramsey Baroud, Uruknet.info – “It is clear that there can be no third Intifada that leaves Abbas and his wretched political apparatus in place. This is precisely why Palestinian Authority goons prevented many attempts by Palestinians in the West Bank to protest the Israeli violence unleashed in the occupied territories, which finally culminated into a massive war against Gaza that has killed and wounded hundreds. These very PA officers who stood by as the army raided Palestinian homes at will were the ones that swiftly moved to crush Palestinians who tried to assemble in protest.”

great-white-shark-watermelon-carvings-2Police state insanity: Man arrested for carving watermelon in a ‘passive-aggressive’ manner – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – ” When his wife returned home later on, she found a watermelon on the kitchen counter with a butcher’s knife in it. That’s when she called the police again and reported that her husband cut up the melon in a “passive aggressive” manner… The woman may have felt threatened, but she could very easily be retaliating. According to police, the couple is currently going through the process of divorce… Whatever the case, the police arrested this man on the basis of an assumed thought crime. When police are given this kind of power, anyone can be locked up and charged for just about anything.”

Globalist Mouthpiece Calls For The Entire Planet To Adopt The ‘National Identification System’ One European Country Has Established – by Michael Snyder, InvestmentWatchBlog.com – “The Economist article about this national identification scheme went largely unnoticed because it had a very boring title: ‘Estonia takes the plunge’.  But the content of the article is absolutely startling.  The Economist article calls the Estonian national identification system a “cyberdream” and makes it sound like it will solve all of our problems…”

Crime and no punishment; putting babies on psychiatric drugs – by Paul Fassa, NaturalNews.com – “No one should use Big Pharma’s toxic drugs to support the myth of brain chemistry imbalances. Even the FDA prohibits prescribing these to children under five. Yet in 2013 the number of babies under one year of age in the USA prescribed dangerous psychotropic drugs was well over a quarter-million.”

MH17: World See Tragedy, US Sees “Game Changer” – by Tony Cartalucci, InformationClearingHouse.info – “NATO’s Atlantic Council claimed in a statement titled, “In the Ukraine War, Putin’s Veil of Deniability Has Vanished,” claims: ‘The Kremlin’s thin veil concealing its waging of war against Ukraine effectively disappeared weeks ago for anyone carefully watching the evidence. But now it has vanished even for the casual observer. Moscow’s escalation of the war since the start of July has created too much clear evidence to permit President Vladimir Putin any further benefit of the doubt.’ “

Greater_Israel2“The Israeli Dream”: The Criminal Roadmap Towards “Greater Israel”? – Ethnic Cleansing Planned in the Middle East? History, Legality Ignored – by Felicity Arbuthnot, GlobalResearch.ca – “At the time Yinon wrote, the eight year, Western driven Iran-Iraq war was into its second year – with another six grinding years of loss, tragedy and heartbreak, valleys of widows, orphans, maimed, on both sides of their common border. The toll on life and health was compared to World War 1. Iraq of course, in an historic error, had virtually been fighting a proxy war for an American regime, even then obsessed with Islam, which, in Iran they had decided was the wrong sort of Islam. What the faith of a nation thousands of miles away had to do with Capitol Hill, remains a mystery.”

Flight MH17 Conjures MH370, Exposing Western Deception, Leading To More Questions – by Shawn Helton – ” ‘They try to show to the whole world that we are responsible for the crash. It is very strange that without any evidence my colleagues from western media would like to find somebody who is responsible for the crash,’ Antonov stated. ‘It seems to me that this is part of information warfare which has been started against the Russian Federation and armed forces.” He also added, “As for me, I don’t want to use this opportunity to blame anybody. I would just like to raise few questions for my colleagues from the armed forces of Ukraine,” Antonov said.”

The Bernaysian Manipulation of the Human Psyche – by Steven MacMillan, ActivistPost.com – “Men are rarely aware of the real reasons which motivate their actions . . . It is chiefly the psychologists of the school of Freud who have pointed out that many of man’s thoughts and actions are compensatory substitutes for desires which has been obliged to suppress. A thing may be desired not for its intrinsic worth or usefulness, but because he has unconsciously come to see it as a symbol of something else, the desire for which he is ashamed to admit to himself….”

More Evidence of False Flag against Russia – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “But Mish Shedlock (“Mish’s Global Economic Trend Analysis”) posted an article entitled “Video of Rebel Buk Launchers Headed Back to Russia?”  That article reports an analysis of the previous Ukraine video.  That analysis claims that,  ‘going by the billboard and other features of the scenery [in the video], Russian bloggers and news sources claim to have identified the road in the video as having been taken in or near the town of Krasnoarmeisk (“Krasnoarmiysk” in Ukrainian), which has been under Kiev’s control since May.’ “

United-Nations-bldg-flags-logoA World Tax is Close to Implementation – by Harold W. Pease Ph. D, LibertyUnderFire.org – “In the most recent G-20 meeting held last February in Australia, proponents were falling all over themselves with excitement over the plan. In a joint communiqué they wrote: ‘We endorse the Common Reporting Standard for automatic exchange of tax information on a reciprocal basis and will work with all relevant parties, including our financial institutions, to detail our implementation plan at our September meeting’ (“A New World Tax Regime,” New American, April 21, 2014, p. 20). They continued with an appeal to all nations ‘that have not yet complied with the existing standard for exchange of information on request to do so and sign the Multilateral Convention on Mutual Administrative Assistance in Tax Matters without further delay.’ “

US elite running genocide in Ukraine – On Wednesday, July 2nd, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko resumed unlimited war against the residents of southeastern Ukraine, whom he calls “terrorists” for their wanting not to be killed by his troops – by Eric Zuesse, PressTV.ir – “One article is a March 3rd poll, which showed “Few Americans want the United States getting involved in policing the political turmoil in Ukraine.” The presumption there was that “we” shouldn’t fix “their” problems.” Who knew that “we,” our own President, is the mastermind behind that ‘turmoil,’ and of this actual ethnic cleansing campaign?”

The New York Review of Books as Propagandist on Ukraine’s Civil War – by Eric Zuesse, OpEdNews.com – “It’s only to say that Obama really did force the people of Ukraine’s southeast to terminate rule from Kiev. That might not have been Obama’s intention (if he was so stupid as not to know better, which is highly unlikely), but it’s what he in fact did, and there can be no doubt whatsoever about this. And all the lying in the world won’t change that fact, even if it will, tragically, deceive the American public, about it, and about the important history that’s now being made there.”

Breedlove-skulks-away

Bilderberg on Ukraine: military chiefs, arms bosses and billionaire speculators – A gathering of those who stand to make a killing out of knowing where and when the bombs might fall, how many and on whom – by Charlie Skelton, TheGuardian.com – “Samsom confirmed that the morning meeting had been about what was happening in Ukraine, which explains why Rasmussen and Breedlove were hot-footing it out the door straight afterwards. Their job was done. Or just starting… And make no mistake. Bilderberg is part of their job. This wasn’t a jolly. This was briefing papers, dress uniforms and military aides. Land Rovers packed with military bodyguards… This is Nato business. US military business. Government business.”

Council’s plan trying to ‘strip people of right to live in the countryside’ – by Claire O’Sullivan, IrishExaminer.com – “According to Midleton-based candidate Wayne Halloran, the draft blueprint for the development of the county sets out that only those who work on the land should get planning permission to live in rural areas… ‘As outlined on pages 60 and 61 of this document, planning permission will only be granted to those working on the land, those who have lived there for more than seven years, or those who have emigrated for over seven years and now want to return home to take care of elderly parents,’ he said… ‘It goes against the history, the nature, and the rights of Irish people to force such a ruling upon them. The established parties seem happy to fill the countryside with pylons and wind turbines, but cannot find space for the rural population that wish to live in a quiet, community-based lifestyle. They seek a life where they are surrounded by nature, by fresh air and by tranquillity.’ “

Connecticut-Four-librariansFour librarians gagged and threatened with prison time under the Patriot Act – from PoliceStateUSA.com – “What’s more, Mr. Christian was placed under a perpetual gag order.  The NSL prohibited the recipient “from disclosing to any person that the F.B.I. has sought or obtained access to information or records under these provisions.”  The gag order was broad enough that it was a crime to discuss the matter to any other person — for life.”

CEO Of One Of The World’s Largest Energy Majors “Sees No Reason For Petrodollar” – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – ” ‘There is no reason to pay for oil in dollars,’ he said. He said the fact that oil prices are quoted in dollars per barrel did not mean that payments actually had to be made in that currency… So even a major beneficiary of the status quo appears to see the end in sight for the Petrodollar.”

Google-dont-be-EvilFrom Google to Amazon: EU goes to war against power of US digital giants – In Europe there is a growing fear of becoming a ‘digital colony’ ruled by Silicon Valley, whose giant firms wield huge power over privacy – and like to avoid tax. Now regulators are striking back – by Juliette Garside, TheGuardian.co.uk – “Either we defend our freedom and change our policies, or we become digitally hypnotised subjects of a digital rulership,” Gabriel warned in a passionate call to action published by the Frankfurter Allgemeine. “It is the future of democracy in the digital age, and nothing less, that is at stake here, and with it, the freedom, emancipation, participation and self-determination of 500 million people in Europe.”

It’s politics, not science, driving climate mania: Why are environmentalists and scientists so reluctant to discuss long-term increases in southern hemisphere sea ice? – by Andrew Mountford, Dailymail.co.uk – “So vast swathes of the data are actually from ‘zombie’ stations that have long since disappeared.  This is bad enough, but it has also been discovered that the  US’s National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration is using estimates even when perfectly good raw data is available to it – and that it has adjusted historical records… Why should it do this? Many have noted that the effect of all these changes is to produce a warmer present and a colder past, with the net result being  the impression of much faster warming… They draw their conclusions accordingly.”

US Troops Have Secretly Been Deployed to Somalia Since 2007 – by Thomas Gaist, GlobalResearch.ca – “The deployment of a significant number of “trainers” and “advisers,” that is, of Special Forces soldiers, for years on end and without any form of public disclosure, raises ominous questions. What other secret deployments has Washington ordered during the past decade? How many new secret wars will the president and his top appointees decide to launch during the next year?”

migrant-kidsObama Administration Refuses to Stem Tide of Illegal Children Crossing Border – Blames Bush as crisis grows worse by the day – from Inforwars.com – “On Sunday, DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson refused to say if tens of thousands of children will be deported or allowed to stay. He said the country’s sovereignty is secondary to the government’s obligation to illegal children… ‘We have to do right by the children,” he said… Republicans demand the Obama administration deport the children immediately.”

The Only Thing More Shameful than the Shelling of Eastern Ukraine is the Silence From the Left – from SCGNews.com – “After four failed attempts at occupying eastern Ukraine with ground troops, Kiev has resorted to the cowardly and shameful strategy of indiscriminately shelling entire cities. This has been going on for over a week now… Why do I reserve a special mark of shame for pseudo left? Because they dress themselves up as champions of humanitarian values and compassion. If you were to take the image they project at face value, you might be inclined to believe that they were against all forms of violence, especially war. After all, anytime someone gets shot in the United States they plaster it all over the front page, but somehow the use of heavy artillery against entire cities in eastern Ukraine doesn’t qualify (nor did the toppling of Libya or the funding and arming of the Syrian rebels for that matter). “

Donetsk-Destroyed_BridgeThree bridges on key routes into Donetsk are ‘destroyed by rebels’ amid fears of new bloodshed in a violent last stand against advancing Ukrainian troops – by Will Stewart, Dailymail.co.uk – “At a rally in the Donetsk’s central square yesterday, pro-Russian commander, a Muscovite using the name Igor Strelkov, told thousands of supporters that his men would fight for the city, which was ‘much easier to defend than little Slaviansk’… Businesses have closed down and thousands of residents are believed to have fled as the fighters fortify positions and buildings in the city, which they have held for the past few months… But the government government pressed what it clearly saw as its advantage, announcing it had carried out an air strike against rebel fighters who had attacked the airport in Luhansk, another eastern city, on Sunday… It accused separatists in the area of opening fire in populated areas under the guise of being government forces.”

A Potential Foreclosure Crisis Looms Over America – Local governments, however, could resort to tactics such as eminent domain if the federal government won’t do anything – by Ellen Brown, Alternet.org – “Only 29% of US homes are now owned free and clear, a record low. Of the remaining 71%, 70% are securitized through MERS. That means that class-action lawsuits by county recorders could potentially establish that title is defective to 50% of US homes (70% of 71%)… If banks, investors and federal officials want to avoid this sort of display of local power, they might think twice about turning down reasonable plans for solving the underwater mortgage crisis of the sort proposed by Senator Merkley, Professor Hockett and Attorney Cahan.”

He was forced by US secret service agents to board a private plane to Guam and was later arrested. The Russian ministry slammed his detention as ‘a de-facto kidnapping.’.. Moscow considers the kidnapping ‘a new hostile move by Washington,’ and accused the US of ignoring proper procedure in dealing with foreign nationals suspected of crimes… ‘The same happened to Viktor Bout and Konstantin Yaroshenko, who were forced to go to the US from third countries and convicted on dubious charges.’ “

Chomsky, BDS And The Jewish Left Paradigm – by Gilad Atzmon, Gilad.co.uk – “The verdict is clear. The occupation is not the problem; it is just a symptom of the problem. The Jewish state is a problem and it is a serious problem. The Jewish Lobby is an even greater problem and it is a global one. And as it seems, even the Jewish Left a la Chomsky is also a grave problem. At the very least it has been an obstacle that prevented the Palestinians from grasping the real context of their struggle.”

However Gazprom and RT experts doubt that even having the equipment to reverse the gas flow, the scheme would be legal… Russian President Vladimir Putin called such supplies artificial saying there’s no way one pipe could be used to supply gas in both directions… The President said that Russia “sees everything”; however the country is not responding, only because it doesn’t want the situation to worsen.”

Corruption, fraud and bureaucracy cost US healthcare system up to $272 billion annually – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – “…a bulk of the nation’s medical fraud occurs within public sector health services like Medicare and Medicaid, which account for more than one-third of all known fraud… As explained in a recent piece for The Economist, nearly $100 billion in fraud takes place within the confines of Medicare and Medicaid spending, while the remaining $172 billion occurs elsewhere. And once Obamacare kicks into full gear, the level of fraud will balloon even further, as it already has just within the realm of the Obamacare healthcare exchanges, most of which have failed despite hundreds of millions of dollars in government spending.”

Ukraine- Kiev’s Genocide: What’s Happening in Slovyansk – by George Eliason, OpEdNews.com – “What people are learning is that the only place that seems to be safe is the militia. Using the aftermath of Slovyansk as an indicator, it really doesn’t matter what a person’s position was on the referendum or the Russian language. Many in the small towns speak Ukrainian, but that didn’t help. People in Slovyansk who supported Kiev are being treated like those in the militia: shot and killed, or sent to a filtration (concentration) camp. The militia doesn’t seem to be the real target. Throughout the war, Kiev has targeted civilians and infrastructure. to date, official Novo Russia (Southeast) figures indicate that 80% of the casualties have been civilian.

 

There is No “Government”

This is a comment that I put up on Foster Gamble’s recent blog post: PEOPLE STANDING FOR JUSTICE
(http://www.thrivemovement.com/people-standing-justice.blog)

If we look at it carefully, there is actually no such “thing” as government. What we call government is an organized structure composed of people using the concept of government as an organizational principle under their direction. Under this principle, the preservation and actualization of the imaginary structure of government itself is the preeminent imperative. The constantly propagandized need for this structure is the multifaceted and mind-numbing justification for the use of whatever means are necessary to protect and preserve, not the people who are supposedly subjects of the government, but the government structure itself. Whatever means necessary include the use of lethal force. History shows that the levels of lethal force used are limited only by the technological tools at the disposal of government actors and their ability to control the reactions and consciences of the governed. The latter is sometimes called manufacturing consent.

While the population can work, often at the cost of extreme suffering and sacrifice, to limit the irrationality and violence of the structures to which they’re subject, we see that over time people taking the role of government officials always tend to enlarge the scope of their powers, as well as the power of the technology and systems they control. The nature of the government concept inevitably attracts people without ethics against the misuse of power into pursuing power in its structure. In fact, the only way to succeed in rising to power is to abandon ethical considerations and, again, to use the means necessary to prevail over other state officials. As John Trudell said, “Their violence works. It hardly ever fails.”

A simple analytic for the validity and legitimacy of human behavior is to see if it involves violence or aggression toward other people or toward living systems. If it does, then we must be called by clear realization to not support it, whatever the rationale or justifications. As people seem to be realizing very rapidly now, it is impossible for us, however lofty our notions or rhetoric, to reach an ethical result through unethical or aggressive behaviors. This is not a matter of compiling a complicated set of rules, but by a clear seeing of what’s going on under our noses. Adopting such a simple ethic is certainly not the easiest course for our egos to take. It can be very rigorous and demanding. On the other hand, if we really want to transcend the cycles of violence and increasing suffering and destruction in which we’re now embedded, this ethical consistency and determination will be more easy than any other alternative

Cannabis has more than 60 phytocannabinoids, molecules that dock with receptors in every organ system in the human body and tend to contribute to our health in many ways. No other plant on Earth has been found to contain more than one of these substances. Cannabis has been used as a medicine and psychotropic REMEDY and sacrament by cultures all over Asia, Europe and Africa for thousands of years. The Constitution clearly says that the U.S. Government only has the limited powers specifically granted to it in the document, which do not include controlling what people use for their health, physical or psychological.

People who use cannabis tend to see things outside of the boxes that Americans tend to be forced into mentally by our, arguably pathological and dominating, culture. Many of the positive aspects of the 60’s youth culture were no doubt due to this effect. When cannabis was (Unconstitutionally) “outlawed,” under the influence of industries that competed with non-psychoactive industrial hemp, 30% of the medicines sold in pharmacies in the U.S. contained cannabis. What is the true explanation of why it was suppressed? What possible legitimate justification or jurisdiction is there for people who disagree with its use, to dominate users through lethal force, imprisonment, property theft or other social sanctions?

2013 in review on the Real Truth Blog

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog. The bottom line is that this blog is known and visited by “an elite few” denizens of the web. Congratulations for your taste and discernment!

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 1,200 times in 2013. If it were a cable car, it would take about 20 trips to carry that many people.

Michael Hastings demise was no accident – his car was BOMBED

Car-morningAfter

Please, this was not “a suspicious car accident.”

The photo above clearly shows that Michael Hastings car was bombed. The entire front of the driver’s side of the car has been blown away.

The video linked HERE, from LoudLabs News, shows clearly that Hastings’ car hood was not crumpled from striking the palm tree, but blown away from the drivers side of the car and did not even hit the tree. MORE THAN THAT it also shows that the driver’s side front quarter of the car WAS GONE, and not even touching the tree (no serious impact damage to the palm).

The video and the photo above show that the front of the car up to the drivers side door wasn’t there. Moreover, his engine and transmission were blown 60 yards down the road, not in the direction of his car supposedly striking the tree. They landed on the far curb of the 4-lane road with no skid marks. His front right wheel was also down the road in the direction the car was traveling when “something happened.” See diagram of crash scene HERE

The tranny of the car extended well back into the passenger compartment, implying that the powerful explosive was likely placed below the passenger compartment, in order to provide the momentum to blow the drive train 60 yards forward and to clear the firewall upward doing it.

It’s time to stop pussy-footing around about this event. Hastings was assassinated.

The Multiple Prongs of Agenda 21 (slight return)

The Multiple Prongs of Agenda 21 (slight return)

Agenda 21 is an action plan or blueprint for a future desired by its creators. This desired future is shrouded in feel good environmentally protective development and innovation, otherwise referred to as green, green movement, and/or environmentalism. Sadly, Agenda 21 is an utter ruse for representing, to many activists and activist groups, a darkly dystopian future as being utopian. There is a larger picture to Agenda 21 that many people either refuse to acknowledge or are determined to deny.

Agenda 21 is one of several pincers in a concerted program. Most people don’t realize precisely what Agenda 21 does, and many don’t acknowledge that it will be a nightmare for the vast majority of humanity. Unless you’re a Bureaucrat, Technocrat, Bismarkianist or member of the elites, as well as a psychopath/sociopath, Agenda 21 is nowhere near a utopia. Its principle underlying tenet is rigid control, with the destruction of rights, liberties and freedoms and their transformation into mere privileges at the discretion of those in control.

Unfortunately, Agenda 21 is much more sophisticated, as it is coupled with multiple prongs that implement its active development. The first is Bismarkianism; this is a three-stage process using a bait and switch to manipulate people into tolerating and accepting expansion of centralized control through globalized governance.

The first stage is socialism, as this creates incentives for the populace to support implementation of public-private partnerships, rewarding fiefdoms, and granting benefits that pacify the populace. Once this stage is in place, public relations or propaganda is used to shift into national socialism that entails making many of these public-private partnerships into permanent parts of the state apparatus.

It isn’t much of a stretch to speculate that after the next economic crisis strikes the United States, public-private partnerships will start becoming fully merged. It looks like the first solid official merger will be of government with banking, through the Federal Reserve. With this centralized public-private government-banking partnership, established in 1913, and with the addition of the corrupt and unprosecuted fraud of designating banks as Too Big To Fail, the result will be a private banking authority with official state power. Public-Private mergers can then repeat this Progressive meme to enable the acceptance of the official establishment of totalitarianism, the creation of an invisible oligarchy with absolute authority.

Some readers may be skeptical about this. However, this will facilitate the approaching “democracy” movement. Masses will be manipulated into denying the rights of various minorities. Congress will become little more than a rubber-stamp under the President’s authority, no longer a separate Constitutional body with checks and balances separating it from the “Unitary Executive.” Centralization will be able to further entrench itself through welfare and warfare aka bribes and “security.” This is perhaps the main mechanism driving Agenda 21, as it combines welfare, interstate commerce, re-interpretation of the supremacy clause, and national security.

The next prong is the Malthusian and Eugenicist merger and re-imaging of Eugenics through Neo-Malthusianism and women’s health/reproductive health. The Neo-Malthusianism prong is perhaps the most hidden of the prongs, though with more visible components such as women’s health/reproductive rights and transhumanism. These prongs would not be complete without the supranational/universalist movements. This is where Agenda 21 operates as a supranational action plan to be coordinated through local implementation, completely altering the Constitutional relationships of local, state and national governments to become regional government “stewards” or soviets of the supranational body. In this particular case, the supranational body and its subsidiaries will be evolved from the United Nations.

These make up a non-exhaustive list of the prongs of Agenda 21 and what they are designed to do. This is to consolidate and expand power behind a centralized authority under the control of the global elites.

Agenda 21 is not compatible with inherent individual rights and freedoms. It is a Collectivist movement. One of humanity’s oldest struggles is between individualism and Collectivism under elite control.

The difference between a collective and a community is that: In a community a group of individuals live in proximity to one another and people work together through cooperation for mutual benefit, protection, and livelihood. Collectives operate under mandates for each individual to accept “rights and responsibilities” dictated by the governing body, which creates separate categories of individuals with different statuses in order to promote its control. This is divide and rule, like a hive or ant colony, not a community. Every individual’s benefit to the Collective is really his or her benefit to the governing regime; the individual is of little to no inherent value in such a system.

In the movie Swordfish, the John Travolta character asks “If you could cure cancer but had to kill one child, could you kill that child?” The Collectivist answer is not only a resounding ‘YES!’ it also dictates that the child should gladly be willing to die, even in great pain “for the greater good.” Why is this relevant? Agenda 21 strips individuals of their unalienable rights, liberties, and freedoms and instead grants them privileges and responsibilities at the governing regime’s discretion. This is slavery. The whole march of the United States toward the despotism, authoritarianism, and totalitarianism of a Police State, and the erosion of the Constitution, which supposedly exists to protect natural rights, is driven by Agenda 21, with its Neo-Malthusianism and planned full merging of public-private partnerships under state authority. In fact, Agenda 21 names every human being in the world, as well as everything in Nature, as only a piece of capital and a resource to be inventoried and allocated. This is an enslavement designed to force people to love, yearn for, and even insist on the servitude of all, the ultimate triumph of Collectivism.

Agenda 21 is an action plan that is being implemented at the local level but is derived from the supranational institution of the United Nations; it is a plan or blueprint designed to turn us all into collective capital and resources. We are to be enslaved with privileges that can be revoked in an instant at the whim of any bureaucrat placed over us by the elite consensus, and with the forced responsibility to do their bidding. Agenda 21 is shrouded in feel good activism from the environmental/green movement; its implementation can only be halted through informing ourselves about what Agenda 21 is and refusing to comply with its implementation.

Agenda 21 operates under the rubric of sustainable development that plans for environmental accounting of human, land and resources in the interests of the Collective. It mandates that every human project needs to be given permission by the soviet control apparatus. Every one of us is to be only a resource under the control and allocation of sustainable development. Bill Gates once announced that the only way to bring down CO2 emissions will be to bring population, consumption and production down to near zero. Sustainable Development effectively means suppressing class mobility, consumption, freedom and, ultimately, population. These policies will result in widespread starvation, war, poisoning and despair. This means that Agenda 21 is an action plan hiding its true intentions behind a smokescreen of feel good activism to enable its full tyrannical implementation in the name of environmental welfare.

What is Voluntaryism?

What is Voluntaryism?

“The thought of how much the human race would have advanced without government simply staggers the imagination.”  Doug Casey, 1979

Voluntaryism is a name for a new model of human organization that can revolutionize world society to release people’s untapped and suppressed potentials.

Introduction from Voluntaryist.com: “Voluntaryism is the doctrine that relations among people should be by mutual consent, or not at all. It represents a means, an end, and an insight. Voluntaryism does not argue for the specific form that voluntary arrangements will take; only that force be abandoned so that individuals in society may flourish. As it is the means which determine the end, the goal of an all voluntary society must be sought voluntarily. People cannot be coerced into freedom. Hence, the use of the free market, education, persuasion, and non-violent resistance as the primary ways to change people’s ideas about the State. The Voluntaryist insight, that all tyranny and government are grounded upon popular acceptance, explains why voluntary means are sufficient to attain that end.”

The converse of Voluntaryism is often called Statism, or the idea there can exist a collective authority that supersedes the authority of individuals.

This Statist ideology pervades our culture and our world. This situation is often accepted by us as simply being “the way it is.” If we look at this carefully and clearly however, we’ll see that “the State” can only ever be a conceptual fiction under which individual humans act using this imagined collective authority. This has developed and has been perpetuated over thousands of years by rulers and their minions, who were under the erroneous and delusional impression that it created advantages for them that made their lives easier and more prestigious.

  • It seems reasonable to speculate that over these many generations of living under governments, there have been intelligent yet psychopathic members of the power elite who have recognized the utility of more social control – of enhancing the hypnotic power of the imaginary institutions they command through psychological manipulation of the populations, the bureaucratic minions and enforcers, and even of those believing themselves the nobility or legitimate leaders.

Because most of us have accepted that this collective power is The Way It Is, we are conditioned to shy away from the consideration that it is never legitimate for us to give this imaginary State invasive privileges that we can’t exercise as individuals.

If people are to be responsible for providing their own abundance, then it is arguably in our own best interest that those around us are as strong and capable as possible, so society can flourish as a whole. Harming others’ abilities to perceive life with clarity and think critically about what they see would therefor only be hurting ourselves. Another corollary to this is the idea that when we attack others, we also feel attacked ourselves at a subconscious level. What goes around, comes around. We then live in a world of fear. This fear is increased if we face irrational, authoritarian, defensive and psychopathic behaviors by “Leaders,” “Representatives,” or officers invested with a belief in their power over us.

  What we now experience as the “educational system” is a highly sophisticated product of many generations of psychological enhancement that operates directly counter to what common sense will tell us will build a strong society.

To truly come into my own power, I must first accept others coming into theirs without any conditions or personal preferences.

  In our current model, we are hypnotically addicted to the idea that we must attain preeminence over others.

  • If I want to promote this unspoken necessity for power, a set of hidden strategies tends to be constantly generated and updated in my mindspace.
  • I tend to see people not as the unknowable mysteries they are, but only as resources for getting advantages prioritized in my hidden strategies. If I don’t see them as having value for gaining preeminence, they have no interest or value for me.
  • Crucially, to advance in rank in society, one needs to serve the interests of people above oneself in the pecking order. This begs the question of just what is being served when one rises to the top of an institution.

In order to open the flow of energies (goods and services) from others – and from Source – I need to open my inner source, for energies to flow outward, producing value that is under demand by my fellow beings.

  Because of the repressive strategies used by people operating “under color” of authority – Typically as “governments” or government-privileged institutions, i.e. corporations – we are now impeded from offering many kinds of essential goods or services that can potentially solve critical issues we now face.

  • Governments generally claim monopoly power to represent the interests of people, often called “citizens,” within the conceptual area – i.e. “State” – over which they claim to have “jurisdiction” – or control. Marc Stevens teaches that “the State” claims legitimacy as a “body politic” which has jurisdiction over citizens: “persons” who make a pledge of allegiance in return for the State’s duty of protection. However, within the U.S. no court has ever ruled that government has incurred any liability for failure to protect its citizens.

One area in which people such as Marc Stevens are producing value for others is in teaching them to protect themselves from invasion and usurpation of their time and energies by people trying to use others to gain illegitimate advantages for themselves. Ultimately, these kinds of services can develop into voluntarily accessed alternatives for many of the functions of “governments.”

  This is highly inconvenient to the purveyors of the worldwide system of control by violence. The system is now coming under the unprecedented threat of the awakening of populations the elite ruling consensus depend on to provide the skills and energy to maintain their hegemony.

  It seems that now, in the early 21st Century, the control agenda has become so developed and pervasive that it is threatened by the arising of any human capabilities not under direct control of the elites. In particular, new ideas in the areas of energy, health, agriculture, social organization and human development directly menace the interlocking institutions of repression.

  • As new technologies emerge to empower the “peasant classes” to transcend their dependence on entrenched systems, Statist cabals will be driven to choose between escalating their use of violence, or acquiescing to change.

The idea of political power is that any means necessary must be employed to enroll the levels of agreement and compliance in the population to attain desired political goals. This amounts to coerced control; war by other means. Once a political process has secured the impression of agreement, or “manufactured consensus,” then State violence is employed in enforcing “democratic” policy. In this sense, political methods violate the basic principles of Voluntaryism.

  As to how we can “get there from here,” the specific pathways are not yet clear. However, if we commit ourselves and adhere to the principles of Voluntaryism, this clarity is certain to emerge. If we steadfastly refrain from violation of others’ lives, are faithful to voluntary agreements we make, and are always open to feedback, criticism, and correction of mistakes, methods of development and social organization we’re not yet aware of will be found. If we lose our resolution and cut corners, we will return to the descending course of our increasingly dangerous fall into corruption.

The transition to an all-voluntary society is the paradigm shift that most of humankind now intuits is coming. The idea is radical: going to the root of the delusions and illusory goals that have plagued us throughout history. Yet at the same time, it is very simple. As we go on, we will feel and intuit more easily those times when thoughts arise of acting in violation of the Sacred Space of others. Avoiding those mistakes, we will gradually feel more free, and more unencumbered with troubled consciences and fears. As these skills begin to become realized, we’ll be on the verge of entering a new world.
