Is Pope Francis’ encyclical really about protecting “the planet and the poor?”

Email reply to a friend after being emailed links to an article by David Suzuki raving about Pope Francis’ encyclical “Laudato Si” and a link to the encyclical itself, which was described as “a rare mix of poetic beauty and the appropriate use of intelligent thought”:

Hi (name withheld),

I would urge you to do more research into what’s going on here. Suzuki has been pushing the AGW meme for quite some time now, in the face of, and without commenting on, peer-reviewed scientific papers that show that the temperature on Earth is driven primarily by the Sun’s magnetic field.

A French scientist, Philippe de Larminat, characterized by the MSM as a “climate doubter” (better than “denier” I guess) was barred from appearing in Rome at the April climate summit sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences in preparation for the recent encyclical. As far as the proponents of AGW theory are concerned, there is no need to even look at evidence that suggests that it might be a major mistake to talk about taking the life-giving power of fuels containing carbon molecules away from people in the developing world, who desperately need them for survival.

I think I previously gave you a DVD with the documentary on the work of Henrik Svensmark, The Cloud Mystery, which covers the difficulties he had back in 2005-2006 publishing his peer-reviewed paper proving the energetic and chemical pathways by which cosmic rays create showers of particles called muons which cause the formation of microscopic nuclei for low-altitude clouds, which have the effect of cooling the Earth. An article I wrote on this back in 2010 can be found at https://berealtruth.wordpress.com/2010/06/28/the-cloud-mystery/. In that, I lay out the information in the documentary that shows persuasive evidence that the Earth has remained in regular cycles of heating and cooling for hundreds of millions of years, and has been cool within the parameters of these cycles even at times when there was more than 10 times the amount of CO2 presently in our atmosphere. You can read about Svensmark’s work and its implications in more detail in a book he co-authored with the great science author Nigel Calder, The Chilling Stars.

Even Al Gore has admitted that the correlations between atmospheric temperatures and CO2 that he stressed in An Inconvenient Truth, show that the rise in CO2 lags behind the rises in temperature by a matter of years. You can also see the current work of retired NASA scientists to present information contesting the AGW theories at http://www.therightclimatestuff.com/. Another factor in the current rise in CO2 in the atmosphere is the dramatic uptick in volcanic activity we’re having worldwide, which greatly increases the amount of gasses being emitted.

The papal encyclical largely implies that there is a moral imperative to, in protecting our Earth Mother, do what we can to prevent climate disaster. He says this is particularly necessary to protect the impoverished of the world, without mentioning the potential disaster for them of any kind of “carbon” rationing regime. Also, if there is an imperative to protect the Earth and its people, why is there no mention of the ongoing geoengineering agenda which Dane Wigington has documented is now killing the forests of the world (not to mention poison us all with a cocktail of toxic heavy metals)?

Why has the Pope weighed in on this issue at this time, even going so far as to appear at the U.N. in concert with the upcoming conference on “the Post-2015 Sustainability Agenda” (i.e. an updated iteration of Agenda 21)? Could it be to provide momentum in preparation for the COP21 conference in Paris in Nov. and Dec.? Can it be that the global elite agenda needs to bring in a “carbon” suppression program rapidly now, before it becomes utterly obvious that the Earth, due to the drastic reduction in the solar magnetic field that’s been underway since the mid-1990’s, indicated by the very weak solar maximum last year, is most likely leading to a longer term cooling trend? This has been shown by the infamous “hiatus” that NOAA recently got caught cooking data in an attempt to try to deny is even happening. Even the 2014 IPCC report, which had a powerfully propagandistic “Summary for Decision Makers,” admitted that there has been no warming for 15 years in the scientific part of the report. Given that the IPCC has been pushing for draconian measures against the world population for nearly 2 decades, why would they include that information if it were not true?

I’m suggesting that there are reasons other than “settled science” and a need to protect the population of the world for what’s going on now. It doesn’t make sense to give the Vatican unquestioned moral leeway as somehow representing unimpeachable ethics, in the face of Rome’s history of controlling people over the centuries, including recent decades, and in particular, playing games with scientific knowledge. If the science were “settled,” why would people on the AGW bandwagon be rejoicing that this encyclical is the element that can push their efforts for control of the world population over the top? Shouldn’t the truth do that?

In Lak’ech,
Bruce

Pope-PropagandaRelease of encyclical reveals pope’s deep dive into climate science – by Anthony Faiola, Michelle Boorstein and Chris Mooney, WashingtonPost.com – “A highly accurate draft, which leaked Monday in the Italian press, had already begun dividing politicians and theologians. As the Vatican rolled out the official version to scenes of Francis on a big screen planting a tree, the debate over the proper role of a pope — one that was already popping up on the presidential campaign trail in the United States — immediately intensified. Environmental activists, meanwhile, widely cheered the rise of an unlikely ally in the fight against climate change, one whose voice could resonate not only in major global conferences but also in prayer groups and church pews.” – Note: Just warms the cockles of your heart, don’t it

How climate-change doubters lost a papal fight – by Anthony Faiola, Michelle Boorstein and Chris Mooney, WashingtonPost.com – “A French doubter who authored a book arguing that solar activity — not greenhouse gases — was driving global warming, de Larminat sought a spot at a climate summit in April sponsored by the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy of Sciences. Nobel laureates would be there. So would U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, U.S. economist Jeffrey Sachs and others calling for dramatic steps to curb carbon emissions… Beisner said he thinks that “between a quarter and a third” of the signers were Catholic. He said he is not totally unhappy with the pope’s encyclical — he appreciates the sections on the need to help the poor and “the sanctity of human life.” But as for the climate section, he said, Francis is ‘writing in an area that is not his own background, and it looks to me as if he was poorly served by his adviser.’ ” (emph. added)

Ellen_Brown-w-glasses“Sentence First, Verdict Afterwards”: The Alice in Wonderland World of Fast-tracked Secret Trade Agreements – by Ellen Brown, EllenBrown.com – “The TPP, TiSA and Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (or TTIP, which covers Europe) will collectively encompass three-fourths of the world’s GDP; and they ultimately seek to encompass nearly 90 percent of GDP. Despite this enormous global impact, fast-track authority would allow the President to sign the deals before their terms have been made public, and send implementing legislation to Congress that cannot be amended or filibustered and is not subject to the constitutional requirement of a two-thirds treaty vote.”

Jerry_Brown-MouthpieceJerry Brown Worries About ‘Overpopulation’ Amid California Drought – by Michael Bastasch – DailyCaller.com – “Brown made the comments before the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California Board and also warned that global warming was exacerbating California’s drought… Water restrictions have even touched California’s agriculture industry, which is expected to shed 18,000 farm jobs this season, equalling about $1.2 billion in lost wages. But even as thousands of farm hands could lose their jobs, California officials are still flushing millions of acre feet of water every year to protect the endangered Delta Smelt fish.”

Vatican speaker and California Governor in push for massive depopulation… talk of ‘Planetary Court’ and removal of 6 billion people under new ‘Earth Constitution’ and ‘World Government’ – by Mike Adams, NaturalNews.com – “But this time, the depopulation agenda may be codified by the Vatican. Professor John Schellnhuber has been chosen as a speaker for the Vatican’s rolling out of a Papal document on climate change. He’s the professor who previously said the planet is overpopulated by at least six billion people. Now, the Vatican is giving him a platform which many expect will result in an official Church declaration in support of radical depopulation in the name of “climate science.”.. Interestingly, California Governor Jerry Brown might welcome such a depopulation agenda organized under a new world government. He recently tweeted about California having too many people, saying, ‘At some point, how many people can we accommodate?’ “

The Political Agenda Behind Alien Disclosure (w/hilarious and informative video) – by Aaron & Melissa Dykes, ActivistPost.com – “Instead we’ll get drip-fed a bunch of government lies, illusions, distortions, and half-truths as preprogramming for a sinister agenda. The real truth certainly isn’t going to come in the form of the Clintons (“I want the public to see my emails!”) and Bill’s bad jokes about “investigating” Area 51, Roswell, and other government black sites. While the probability of life on other planets is surely compelling, we’re not going to find the truth through gatekeepers in establishment positions of power, be that in government, Hollywood, or via elitist billionaires who have documented ulterior motives.”

Israel-Palestine1Israel’s “Right to Defend”: By Definition, An Aggressor Cannot Act in Defense – by Robert Barsocchini, GlobalResearch.ca – “Naturally, this is what Israel, the US, and all corrupt, nasty power-centers do.  Erakat explains how Israel plays these games with International Law: ‘[Israel tries to get around International Law by saying it does] not occupy [the Palestinian territories] within the meaning of international law. The UN Security Council, the International Court of Justice, the UN General Assembly, as well as the Israeli High Court of Justice have roundly rejected the Israeli government’s position.’ “

Signs Of Financial Turmoil In Europe, China And The United States – by Michael Snyder, TheEconomicCollapseBlog – “What this means is that big trouble is brewing in the bond markets.  This is something that I warned about in my previous article entitled “Experts Are Warning That The 76 Trillion Dollar Global Bond Bubble Is About To Explode“… For the moment, U.S. stocks are doing fine.  But just about everyone can see that we in a massive financial bubble that could burst at any time.  Presidential candidate Donald Trump says that what we are witnessing is a “big fat economic and financial bubble like you’ve never seen before”…”

Europe turning against vaccines – by Lawrence Solomon, “As evidence for its claim, the article cites the French National Institute for Prevention and Health Education, which found that “distrust of vaccination has risen from 10% in 2005 to 40% in 2010,” as well as pointing to a major conference held in Italy last year, The State of Health of Vaccination in the EU. The conference, designed to counter the growing opposition among Europeans to vaccinations, featured numerous speakers concerned about the low levels of vaccination throughout the continent.”

Neural_DustNanoparticles Enable Remote Control Brains Via Magnetic Field: New Study – by Nicholas West, GlobalResearch.ca – “The brain system was labeled “Neural Dust” and was intended to “monitor the brain from the inside.” Inventors speculated that a network of nanoparticles injected into the brain could measure electrical activity in neurons, then use ultrasound to form a two-way transfer of data. This theoretically would lead to the reading, generation, or alteration of information – i.e., mind control. Most disturbingly, at the time, is that their theories had entered the testing phase and showed some success, albeit on a beetle.”

How the Sun Affects Our Minds – by Lynne McTaggart, WarIsCrime.com – “As a consequence Chizhevsky fell out of favor for years among the scientific establishment, despite the patronage of the Nobel Prize winner, author, and political activist Maxim Gorky. Nevertheless Chizhevsky, a scientific da Vinci of sorts, stubbornly carried on with his research, attempting to make connections between biology, physics, geology, and space weather that remained invisible to most of his peers. He painstakingly examined records of all battles, upheavals, riots, revolutions, and wars, comparing them with sunspot activity for nearly two thousand years in seventy-one countries, including his own. The theory checked out: more than three-quarters of all instances of human unrest, including the Russian Revolution of 1917, had occurred during a solar maximum, the period of the maximum number of sunspots in any solar cycle. The only area that remained questionable was the mechanism of this cosmic connection, but Chizhevsky had a theory: our dependence upon the cosmic pulse of the sun might be mediated by ions, or excess charge, in the air.”

Whooping_coughWhooping cough cases rise in U.S thanks to failed vaccine science – by David Gutierrez, NaturalNews.com – “The reason that cases of whooping cough have been on the rise in the United States is due not to fewer people vaccinating their children but to a decreased effectiveness of the vaccine itself, according to a study conducted by researchers from Monash University in Melbourne, Australia, and published in the journal PLOS Computational Biology on April 23… In recent years, health experts have raised concerns that pertussis cases are on the rise. Between 1965 and 2002, there were an average of about 10,000 cases per year in the United States. In recent years, that number has risen to about 29,000 per year, with a high of 48,000 in 2012… In the new study, the researchers applied mathematical models to a massive data set containing information on U.S. pertussis cases between 1950 and 2009 to test the various hypotheses posed to explain rising disease rates. The explanations tested included lower vaccination rates, improved diagnosis (either through increased awareness or more accurate diagnostic tests), and a change in the vaccine formula that took place in 1991.”

Ashton_Carter-bellicoseUS officials consider nuclear strikes against Russia – by Niles Williamson, WSWS.org – “Most provocatively, a report published by the Associated Press yesterday reports that the Pentagon has been actively considering the use of nuclear missiles against military targets inside Russia, in response to what it alleges are violations of the 1987 Intermediate-range Nuclear Forces (INF) treaty. Russia denies US claims that it has violated the INF by flight-testing ground-launched cruise missiles with a prohibited range… Three options being considered by the Pentagon are the placement of anti-missile defenses in Europe aimed at shooting Russian missiles out of the sky; a “counterforce” option that would involve pre-emptive non-nuclear strikes on Russia military sites; and finally, “countervailing strike capabilities,” involving the pre-emptive deployment of nuclear missiles against targets inside Russia.”

US-Saudi- Israeli “Axis of Evil” Against Yemen, Carefully Planned Military Undertaking – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – “Israel is very much involved. In late April, Fars News reported its submarines and warplanes “readily observed” near Saudi Arabia’s coastline since conflict began – according to unnamed foreign diplomats… They said Riyadh secretly agreed decades ago to give Israeli submarines and warplanes access to Saudi waters… They’ve been patrolling them since the start of conflict. According to Fars News, ‘(m)any regional officials…earlier revealed collaboration among the US, Israel and Saudi Arabia in the aggression against Yemen.’.. Weeks earlier, Iranian Defense Minister Hossein Dehqan said Washington and Israel are the main sponsors of aggression on Yemen… Days after Saudi terror-bombing began, Fars News said Israeli warplanes participated in attacking Yemeni targets… Yemeni Al-Haq political party secretary general Hassan Zayd said ‘Zionists are conducting a joint operation in coalition with Arabs.’.. Everything is orchestrated and coordinated by Washington – including supplying weapons, intelligence and targets to strike.”

Cleaning-in-ViolationVolunteers Threatened with Arrest for Cleaning Up Oil Spill, They Ignored the Cops and Kept Cleaning– by John Vibes, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “To make matters worse, the volunteers who spontaneously appeared to help clean up the oil, were threatened with arrest by police for tampering with the scene and apparently putting themselves in danger… The volunteers were the first people on the scene to help, long before the government agents who were hired arrived… ‘I was there for about an hour, and we filled 50 five-gallon buckets. Sadly, I must say, there is no way we removed one percent of that spill,’ volunteer Ethan Turpin told the Independent… According to witnesses, the officers had complained that the volunteers did not have safety equipment that was up to code, and they were not cleaning up the spill according to government guidelines. All the while, government or corporate clean-up crews had still not shown up.”

Tens of Thousands March Against Global Elites Ahead of G7 – by Sarah Lazare, CommonDreams.org – “…tens of thousands marched through nearby Munich on Thursday to protest the summit’s politics of ‘neo-liberal economic policies, war and militarization, exploitation, poverty and hunger, environmental degradation, and the closing-off towards refugees.’.. Over 34,000 people reportedly turned out for Thursday’s march, with one demonstrator identified as Julia by Euronews declaring we must not lose hope that one day the world really will be equal, and we will all have the same values.’.. The massive protest is just one of many mobilizations, including alternative summits and direct actions, in the lead-up to the gathering of global elites, which will take place June 7 and 8. Government representatives of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United States will formally take part… ‘The representatives of the richest and most powerful countries in the world lay claim to decide the fate of the entire world, without having any legitimation for this,’ reads a statement from Stop G7 Elmau 2015.”

Hundreds protest ‘kidnapping’ in Norway’s Child Welfare System – from RT.com – “Driving rain in Oslo didn’t put the several hundred protesters off from making their viewpoint heard, as they assembled by the city’s Central Station, before marching towards the parliament building… Banners were held aloft, with messages including: ‘Children are not business,’ and, ‘Bring back our children.’ They are angry at the Norwegian foster care system ‘Barnevernet,’ (Child Protection Service), which has seen families in the country lose their children for alleged abuses, such as accidently dislodging a child’s loose tooth.”

Art of Manipulation: Kiev to Create Project to Indoctrinate Donbass – from SputnikNews.com – “Hacktivists from CyberBerkut leaked information claiming that the United States helped Ukraine to come up with a new radio station designed to turn the residents of the self-proclaimed Donbass republics pro-Kiev. The project was also supposed to spread panic and separatist ideas within Russia… Together with the United States, Kiev created a new project designed to gain support of the population in the self-proclaimed Donbass republics through psychological manipulation and disinformation,…CyberBerkut claimed… The new radio project, codenamed “Free Donbass,” was created by US experts to swing the people of the independent Donbas republics towards supporting the government in Kiev… ‘The goal is to create a radio station, which besides music will give people ‘the proper’ and beneficial information to the Kiev junta,’ a statement on the CyberBerkut website said… Radios tuned into the station’s frequency, will be distributed to Donbass residents as humanitarian aid. NATO used the similar technique in Iraq, which proved to be successful, the hacker group said.”

Saudi-led naval blockade leaves 20m Yemenis facing humanitarian disaster – by Julian Borger, TheGuardian.com – “Aid agencies say embargo imposed by US and UK-backed Arab coalition has had dramatic effect, with almost 80% of population in urgent need of food, water and medical supplies… Despite western and UN entreaties, Riyadh has also failed to disburse any of the $274m it promised in funding for humanitarian relief. According to UN estimates due to be released next week 78% of the population is in need of emergency aid, an increase of 4 million over the past three months.”

NOAA Fiddles With Climate Data To Erase The 15-Year Global Warming ‘Hiatus’ – by Michael Bastasch, DailyCaller.com – “But that’s not all NOAA did to increase the warming trend in recent decades. Climate expert Bob Tisdale and meteorologist Anthony Watts noted that to ‘manufacture warming during the hiatus, NOAA adjusted the pre-hiatus data downward.’.. ‘If we subtract the [old] data from the [new] data… we can see that that is exactly what NOAA did,” Tisdale and Watts wrote on the science blog Watts Up With That… ‘It’s the same story all over again; the adjustments go towards cooling the past and thus increasing the slope of temperature rise,’ Tisdale and Watts added. ‘Their intent and methods are so obvious they’re laughable.’ “

US-Saudi- Israeli “Axis of Evil” Against Yemen, Carefully Planned Military Undertaking – by Stephen Lendman, GlobalResearch.ca – Yemen is Obama’s war – planned months before Saudi-led proxies launched naked aggression… It’s been raging since March 26 with no end in sight. At stake is Yemeni sovereignty and the fate of its 24 million people suffering horrifically from relentless Saudi terror-bombing and shelling… Israel is very much involved. In late April, Fars News reported its submarines and warplanes “readily observed” near Saudi Arabia’s coastline since conflict began – according to unnamed foreign diplomats… They said Riyadh secretly agreed decades ago to give Israeli submarines and warplanes access to Saudi waters.“The Saudi F-16 fighter jet was shot down and subsequently crashed in the Bayt Khayran area of the district of Bani Harith in the northern part of Sanaa.”..  Wreckage of both planes “were found to be of types never supplied to an Arab nation, not Saudi Arabia” or others. ‘The only ‘buyer’ in the region for that type of plane is Israel.’.. At the same time, Press TV reported two downed Saudi warplanes in the same areas… On May 29, Pravda said ‘Saudis have begun to wipe Yemen off the map…Shocking video reveals proton bombardment from a neutron bomb.”.. “Israel is reported to be the one to deploy such (weapons). Any doubts about the nuclear attack on Yemen attributed to Israel, as evidenced in two Israeli F-16s shot down and forensically identified, are now gone.’ ”

Israeli weapons, US base plans found in Sanaa Saudi embassy – report – from RT.com – “In the embassy, the Houthis discovered a cache of weapons and ammunition made in Israel. According to Fars news, the Saudi government has asked Tel-Aviv for weapons to supply what the report calls “terrorist groups” and forces loyal to President Hadi… The report also claims documents were discovered in the embassy detailing the US intends to build a military base on Mayyun Island near the Bab al-Mandeb Strait “to protect their own interests and ensure the security of Israel.” The island is part of Saudi Arabia… ‘The Saudis are using Israeli weapons in their raids on Yemen,’ the Fars report says, quoting Yemeni Army Commander Taher Rasoul.”

UN-Not_Our_FriendMore Collectivism and Sustainability to Come at the 2015 UN Summit – by Makia Freeman, ZenGardner.com – “… the UN assumes that the Charter is vague and broad enough so as to authorize it to do absolutely everything! This concept of unlimited power was made absolutely clear when the UN World Court declared: “Under international law, the organization [the UN] must be deemed to have those powers which, though not expressly provided in the Charter, are conferred upon it by necessary implication as being essential to the performance of its duties.” – G. Edward Griffin

UK’s Independent Newspaper Blows Lid Off Vaccine Damages – by Catherine J. Frompovich, ActivistPost.com – “The above information demonstrably demonstrates – and validates – what vaccine-safety-advocates (often referred to as anti-vaxxers) have been beating the drums about: Vaccines cause irreversible damage and, as the U.S. VAERS reporting system—similar to the UK’s ADR (adverse drug reaction) reporting system—even deaths and for which the U.S. Vaccine Court has settled claims… So, it’s indisputable that vaccines cause adverse health problems, which undeniably increase healthcare costs for everyone involved, plus promote more Big Pharma patented ‘products’ to deal with those ADRs. Can that be one of the hidden ‘aspects’ for promoting vaccines as assiduously as government health agencies do?.. The UK is not unique in ADRs from vaccines. Every country in the world that has any vaccine program reports serious ADRs. However, what is unique is that in the USA those ADRs are not permitted to be discussed in the mainstream press and media. The Independent’s report truly is refreshing insofar as the “cat is out of the bag” definitely, and let’s make certain it stays out; that journalists globally report vaccine damage, and especially in the supposed ‘free’ press of the United States of America.”

Sen_Sheldon_WhitehouseSenator: Use RICO Laws to Prosecute Global Warming Skeptics – by Mark Hemingway, WeeklyStandard.com – “…when does coordinating “a wide range of activities, including political lobbying, contributions to political candidates, and a large number of communication and media efforts” go from basic First Amendment expression to racketeering? The tobacco analogy is inappropriate in regards to how direct the link between smoking and cancer is. Even among those who do agree that global warming is a problem, there’s a tremendously wide variety of opinions about the practical effects. Who gets to decide whether someone is ‘downplaying the role of carbon emissions in climate change’ relative to the consensus? If message coordination and lobbying on controversial scientific and political issues can be declared racketeering because the people funding such efforts have a financial interest in a predetermined outcome, we’re just going to have to outlaw everything that goes on in Washington, D.C.”

EPA hid truth about glyphosate and cancer for decades to protect Monsanto’s corporate profits – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “The scientist goes on to discuss one study in particular involving rabbits that examined the effects of the herbicidal chemical on the skin. Researchers at the time monitored the rabbits’ blood chemistry; one finding involved an increase in lactate dehydrogenase, an enzyme in the blood related to tissue damage… Samsel says another study indicated that glyphosate went directly into the animals’ bone marrow. The scientist says that is dangerous because new cells are born in the marrow and can pass substances on to the thymus glad, where T-cells and white blood cells eventually form. He believes that is significant, especially in light of the recent IARC report describing glyphosate as “probably carcinogenic” in causing non-Hodgkin lymphoma and prostate cancer.”

Mohammed_Ali_al-HoutiTop Houthi leader welcomes UN-backed Yemen peace talks – from PressTV.ir – “Houthi lashed out at Yemen’s fugitive former president, Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, and his supporters, including the Saudi regime, for “foiling” any peace effort aimed at restoring peace and stability to the violence-ravaged country… ‘They are putting pre-conditions to obstruct any talks that could lead the Yemeni people to a solution,’ he stated in reference to the earlier remarks by Hadi and his cabinet members urging Houthi fighters to lay down arms and abandon the areas under their control as preconditions for any peace negotiations… The Houthi official also stressed that no peace deal could be achieved while Riyadh refuses to stop its military aggression against the Yemeni people.”

Israeli weapons, US base plans found in Sanaa (Yemen) Saudi embassy – report – from RT.com – “The Fars report cites sources among Houthi rebels fighting against forces loyal to Yemen’s fugitive President Abd Rabbuh Mansour Hadi and their Saudi allies. It claims the rebels drove some 40 Saudi guards from the embassy to capture the compound… In the embassy, the Houthis discovered a cache of weapons and ammunition made in Israel. According to Fars news, the Saudi government has asked Tel-Aviv for weapons to supply what the report calls “terrorist groups” and forces loyal to President Hadi… The report also claims documents were discovered in the embassy detailing the US intends to build a military base on Mayyun Island near the Bab al-Mandeb Strait ‘to protect their own interests and ensure the security of Israel.’ The island is part of Saudi Arabia.”

Austerity – The Demolition of the Welfare State and the Rise of the Zombie Economy – Review of Kerry­-Anne Mendoza’s Book – by Jim Miles, GlobalResearch.ca – “In order to protect the corporate world, many laws have been made that circumvent or undermine basic human rights of privacy, freedom of assembly, detention without charges, et al. Mendoza highlights her comments with specific examples that highlight the absurdity and the oppressive nature of many of these acts… Historically she gives a brief outline beginning with the Bretton Woods Agreements made during World War II when U.S. corporate ideology became paramount. The work passes through the era of IMF//World Bank Structural Adjustment Programs (SAPs) that created many countries indebted to the western financial system and harmed much of the affected countries agricultural and nascent industrial components… It concludes with the current “negotiations” ­ really a lack thereof as the corporate bosses/lawyers/MBAs are writing the agreements out of public sight/democratic scrutiny ­concerning the TTIP (Atlantic) and TTP (Pacific) financial agreements that create corporate rule over sovereign national rules.”

Zoran_ZaevMacedonian media: patriots defeated Color Revolution – by Andrew Korybko, OrientalReview.org – “The most important factor in effectively combating any Color Revolution, not just Macedonia’s, is a patriotic population, and Macedonians of all kinds streamed into the street to support their country during the massive rally on 18 May. They were already aware of the Color Revolution attempt by Zaev, and the presence of irredentist Albanian supporters and the Macedonia-hating Sergey Stanischev during the ‘opposition’s’ small gathering contributed to the patriotic reaction the day afterwards. What can be learned by this is that a proactive information campaign educating citizens about the looming threat to their country, coupled with soft power failures by the Color Revolutionaries, can solidify the population in opposing the regime change attempt. All of this would be for naught, however, if Macedonians didn’t already value their identity and were confident with it, since one can’t properly defend what they don’t truly love.”

Macedonian Crisis: Uneasy Conscience Betrays Itself – by Dmitry Minin, Strategic-Culture.org – “The Macedonian opposition has a powerful sponsor lending a helping hand. Suffice it to remember the 6-months-old wire-tap scandal sparked by revelations that came to light thanks to the efforts undertaken by patriots. An almost surreal scandal involving 700 thousands of secretly recorded conversations caught top government officials discussing everything from rigging votes to covering up killings. Opposition Social Democrat leader Zoran Zaev said the tapes were made illegally by the government as part of mass surveillance operation targeting 20,000 allies and opponents alike.”

Michael_Snyder Investors Start To Panic As A Global Bond Market Crash Begins – by Michael Snyder, ActivistPost.com – “If Greece defaults and starts using another currency, the value of the euro is going to absolutely plummet and bond yields all over the continent are going to start heading into the stratosphere… That is why it is so important to keep an eye on what is going on in Greece… But no matter what happens in Greece, it appears that we are moving into a time when there will be higher interest rates around the world.  And since 505 trillion dollars in derivatives are directly tied to interest rate levels, that could lead to a financial unraveling unlike anything that we have ever seen before in the history of our planet.”

Why Is The EU Forcing European Nations To Adopt ‘Bail-In’ Legislation By The End Of The Summer? – by Michael Snyder, TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com – “So which countries are being threatened?.. It turns out that there are 11 of them.  The following comes from Mark O’Byrne: ‘The article “EU regulators tell 11 countries to adopt bank bail-in rules” reported how 11 countries are under pressure from the EC and had yet “to fall in line”. The countries were Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Lithuania, Malta, Poland, Romania, Sweden, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, France and Italy.’.. France and Italy are two countries who are regarded as having particularly fragile banking systems… But why only two months to get this done?.. When I was in law school, I took an entire course on European Union law.  Normally, things in Europe take a very long time to get done.  It is out of character for the European Commission to rush to get something like this done so quickly… Could they be anticipating that this legislation will need to be put into use very soon?”

‘Self-appointed advocate of new Ukraine’: Soros emails leaked by anti-Kiev hackers – from RT.com – ” According to the leaked documents, Soros supports Barack Obama’s stance on Ukraine, but believes that the US should do even more… He is confident that the US should provide Ukraine with lethal military assistance, ‘with same level of sophistication in defense weapons to match the level of opposing force.’.. ‘In poker terms, the US will ‘meet, but not raise,’ the 84-year-old businessman explained, supposedly signing one of the letters as ‘a self-appointed advocate of the new Ukraine.’.. The Western backers want Kiev to ‘restore the fighting capacity of Ukraine without violating the Minsk agreement,’ Soros wrote… Retired US general Wesley Clark, who commanded the NATO bombing of Yugoslavia, and Polish ex-general, Waldemar Skrzypczak, will be among those advising Poroshenko on how to fulfil this task, he added.”

Obama’s Affordable Care Act becoming more unaffordable than ever as insurance rates skyrocket – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “Meanwhile, American consumers continue to get the shaft by a law whose namesake, President Obama, promised repeatedly would benefit consumers by lowering their costs… ‘Insurers seem to be reporting higher trend, which means they are seeing bigger increases in health care costs,’ Larry Levitt, senior vice president for special initiatives at the Kaiser Family Foundation, told Politico. ‘But really what’s going on here is they now have data showing what the risk pool looks like. Initially in 2014 they were completely guessing about who was going to enroll and how much health care they were going to use.’.. And the “risk pool” is worse than insurance companies envisioned because fewer younger, healthier Americans who don’t require much healthcare are signing up for coverage.

obama-nuclear‘Russia Would Attack NATO Only In Mad Person’s Dream’ – Putin – from RT.com via InformationClearingHouse.info – ” ‘I think that only an insane person and only in a dream can imagine that Russia would suddenly attack NATO. I think some countries are simply taking advantage of people’s fears with regard to Russia. They just want to play the role of front-line countries that should receive some supplementary military, economic, financial or some other aid,’ Putin said… Certain countries could be deliberately nurturing such fears, he added, saying that hypothetically the US could need an external threat to maintain its leadership in the Atlantic community. ‘Iran is clearly not very scary or big enough’ for this, Putin noted with irony… Russia’s President invited the journalists to compare the global military presence of Russia and the US/NATO, as well as their military spending levels. He also urged them to look at the steps each side has taken in connection with the Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty since the collapse of the Soviet Union… Russia’s military policy is ‘not global, offensive, or aggressive,” Putin stressed, adding that Russia has “virtually no bases abroad,’ and the few that do exist are remnants of its Soviet past.”

Lindsay-w-Balloons‘Vote for me’ if you want more wars: GOP presidential candidate – from PressTV.ir – “US Republican presidential candidate Lindsey Graham has told Americans to vote for him if they want more wars and avoid 9/11 like terrorist attacks… In an interview with Fox News on Thursday, co-host Steve Doocy questioned Graham’s past war rhetoric… ‘A lot of people are just worn out by war,’ Doocy told the longtime senator from South Carolina… ‘Well, don’t vote for me,’ Graham responded. ‘Don’t vote for me, because I’m telling you what’s coming: Barack Obama’s policies leading from behind are going to allow another 9/11.’.. ‘ISIL is large, rich and entrenched,” he added. ‘If I’m president they will be poor, small and on the run.’ ”

Living in the Climax of Awakening Ages – by Zen Gardner, ZenGardner.com – “The convergence we are experiencing is everything to be excited about. Do not doubt your inner voice. We stand in full conviction and need not be moved by the barkings of technofascism or police state tactics. We must operate in calm, trusting knowing that what has been established in our hearts is the true nature of humanity and our planet and that these machinations from some sort of imaginary hell are simply that – false, fabricated weapons of fear-based intimidation designed to destabilize our heart felt footing in the true reality of the world as it should, could, will be, and already is… It’s all about the individual. We stand alone, yet together. We move with honor and dignity. We speak truth, in love. Our force, even if it be just one alone, is more than the lie can handle. In that conviction the heart wins. No matter the seeming outcome in any surface skirmish, we win. Because Truth always wins out. Always.

2015-06-07 10_01_28-701 _ US Maury collection ICOADS _ By_ benmschmidt _ Flickr - Photo Sharing!Plot Logbook Entries from 18/19th century ship logs and you get this amazing chart – by John Konrad, GCaptain.com – ” ‘A map I put up a year and a half ago went viral this winter’ says map creator Ben Schmidt .  ‘The motivation for the series is that a medium-sized data set like Maury’s 19th century logs (with ‘merely’ millions of points) lets us think through in microcosm the general problems of reading historical data. It shows the paths taken by ships in the US Maury collection of NOAA’s ICOADS database.’… The most striking feature of the map, however, are the broad bands of traffic moving across the high seas. Their sheer volume reflects the economic importance of each transoceanic flow with the centre of gravity for global maritime commerce is the east coast of North America. Three thick bundles of traffic, each composed of countless individual ocean crossings, converge on the continent’s eastern seaboard. (emph. added)

Snowden-via-satelliteDaniel Ellsberg: Snowden would not get a fair trial – and Kerry is wrong – by Daniel Ellsberg, TheGuardian.com – “I wondered how a 70-year-old Kerry would relate to that question as he looked at that picture and that headline. And then there he was on MSNBC an hour later, thinking about me, too, during a round of interviews about Afghanistan that inevitably turned to Edward Snowden ahead of my fellow whistleblower’s own primetime interview that night: ‘There are (sic) many a patriot – you can go back to the Pentagon Papers with Dan Ellsberg and others who stood and went to the court system of America and made their case. Edward Snowden is a coward, he is a traitor, and he has betrayed his country. And if he wants to come home tomorrow to face the music, he can do so.’.. Snowden would come back home to a jail cell – and not just an ordinary cell-block but isolation in solitary confinement, not just for months like Chelsea Manning but for the rest of his sentence, and probably the rest of his life. His legal adviser, Ben Wizner, told me that he estimates Snowden’s chance of being allowed out on bail as zero. (I was out on bond, speaking against the Vietnam war, the whole 23 months I was under indictment)… John Kerry’s challenge to Snowden to return and face trial is either disingenuous or simply ignorant that current prosecutions under the Espionage Act allow no distinction whatever between a patriotic whistleblower and a spy. Either way, nothing excuses Kerry’s slanderous and despicable characterizations of a young man who, in my opinion, has done more than anyone in or out of government in this century to demonstrate his patriotism, moral courage and loyalty to the oath of office the three of us swore: to support and defend the Constitution of the United States.”

You Can Be Prosecuted for Clearing Your Browser History – Khairullozhori Matanov, a friend of the Boston bomber, is being sentenced under a law whose purview is growing disturbingly wide – by Juliana DeVries, InformationCleraringHouse.info – “In 2010 David Kernell, a University of Tennessee student, was convicted under Sarbanes-Oxley after he deleted digital records that showed he had obtained access to Sarah Palin’s Yahoo e-mail account. Using publicly available information, Kernell answered security questions that allowed him to reset Palin’s Yahoo password to “popcorn.” He downloaded information from Palin’s account, including photographs, and posted the new password online. He then deleted digital information that may have made it easier for federal investigators to find him. Like Matanov, he cleared the cache on his Internet browser. He also uninstalled Firefox, ran a disk defragmentation program to reorganize and clean up his hard drive, and deleted a series of images that he had downloaded from the account. For entering Palin’s e-mail, he was eventually convicted of misdemeanor unlawfully obtaining information from a protected computer and felony destruction of records under Sarbanes-Oxley. In January 2012, the US Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit found that Kernell’s awareness of a potential investigation into his conduct was enough to uphold the felony charge… At the time Kernell took steps to clean his computer, he does not appear to have known that there was any investigation into his conduct. Regardless, the government felt that they were entitled to that data, and the court agreed that Kernell was legally required to have preserved it.”

Anti-Poroshenko_March-Kiev‘Impeach Poroshenko!’ Massive (?) anti-govt rally held in central Kiev – Political analyst Aleksandar Pavic told RT that there has been a rapid decline in living standards and human rights since the Maidan revolution in 2014, which resulted in the violent ouster of the former government by Kiev’s current authorities… ‘After the Maidan 2014 nobody in Ukraine is enjoying a better life, except people at the top of organizations and structures that caused the Maidan revolution,’ Pavic said… Since Maidan, Ukraine has established an almost “oligarchical regime,” as the current government has excluded a ‘large fragment of the population from having a say in political life,’ he said… ‘If they look at their lives today and a year and a half ago I think they cannot but notice the big decline of living standards and even human rights.’.. Even under Yanukovich’s rule Ukraine was ‘much closer to the European way of life,’ Pavic said. ”

as_above_so_below_by_circle_art-700x700Organic Hierarchy – And Dark Side Deception – by Julian Rose, ZenGardner.com – “There are no doubt many levels that make up the moving stairway to full conscious awareness; thus many roles to fill on the journey of aspiration towards the Supreme. A society which embraces this form of aspirational governance will offer countless rungs of ‘employment’ for its people, each reflecting and drawing-out, the actual talents and creative abilities each individual possesses… Here we move far beyond the modern day pseudo-democratic experiment in which individual aspiration is honoured to the degree that it devotes itself to the acquisition of wealth, prestige and a well-honed ability ‘to play the game’. A game which the status quo has set-up in order to maintain its entirely false hierarchical ambitions… However, the idea of establishing a hierarchy here on Earth is likely to have its origins in an attempt to mirror the universal model. That is why the wisdom of the phrase ‘as above so below’ carries such a particular significance.” – Interesting and provocative philosophical speculation

German FM calls for removal of Gaza blockade – from PressTV.ir – “German Foreign Minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier has called for the removal of Israel’s eight-year-long blockade on the Gaza Strip… More action to rebuild and improve Gaza’s troubled economy “requires the opening of crossing points,” said Steinmeier during a rare visit to Gaza on Monday… Removing the blockade will also decrease the risk of renewed escalation in the region, he noted… ‘The troubled situation in Gaza demands of us to think about concrete steps to improve daily life there — without which, I am afraid, the situation is escalating,’ he added.”

Syria at forefront of resistance against Israel: Larijani – from PressTV.ir – “(Iran’s Parliament Speaker) Larijani made the remarks at a joint press conference with his Syrian counterpart Mohammad Jihad al-Laham in the Iranian capital, Tehran, on Monday… The top Iranian parliamentarian also lauded the resistance of the Syrian nation against terrorism, saying that Syrian people have managed, to a great extent, to foil the plots hatched by the “adventurous” terrorists through steadfastness.

Colleen_McNallyArizona judge threatens mother with jail time for speaking out against illegal medical kidnapping – by Jonathan Benson, NaturalNews.com – “Here is the face of judicial tyranny in Maricopa County, Arizona, where the juvenile justice system has completely run amok, illegally holding innocent children hostage while denying their parents’ First, Fourth and Fourteenth Amendment rights as guaranteed under the Constitution. This face belongs to Presiding Juvenile Judge Colleen McNally, who right now is threatening to throw a mother in prison — not for any crime, but simply for talking to others about the crimes of Judge McNally and her buddies in Child Protective Services.Their full story and a timeline of events is available here. But suffice it to say that, like many other cases of state-initiated child abduction in recent years, the Diegel girls were kidnapped by a “children’s hospital,” in this case Phoenix Children’s Hospital, and subjected to clinical trials without their parents’ consent. And when their parents caught onto the racket and tried to take action, they were dealt with harshly by the corrupt state.”

Detroit citizens launch Detroit Water Brigade as battle looms with corporate monopolization of water supply – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “DeMeeko Williams, co-founder, political director and chief coordinator of the Detroit Water Brigade, a group he helped found to end water service cancellations after his own water was shut off, noted that while ordinary citizens were losing their service, local corporations and even some churches that owe millions of dollars are still allowed to keep their service… He said he thinks there is collusion between local politicians and corporations allowing the latter to keep their lights on and their water flowing. To that end, Al Jazeera America reported in October that the Detroit Red Wings’ hockey arena owed the city some $80,000, while the Detroit Lions’ stadium, Ford Field, owed $55,000. In sum, commercial and industrial users owe $30 million in unpaid water bills… ‘The ‘Water Warriors’ put their bodies on the line to protect Detroiters. Five hundred shut-offs were prevented,’ he said recently… The issue has now become one of international human and civil rights. Officials with the United Nations have called the shut-offs inhumane, arguing that water is a basic necessity.”

 

 

 

A Reply to a Question on “Chemtrail Debunking”

This is a response to a volunteer for the Coalition to End Toxic Aerosols (CETA) campaign. She was having a discussion by email with a friend, and her friend started sending her articles that, in her friend’s opinion, showed that Geoengineering is the product of the imaginations of that flaky and excitable species known as “Conspiracy Theorists.” One of the links she sent me to look at is: http://science.howstuffworks.com/transport/flight/modern/what-are-chemtrails.htm – My reply is below:


The article on How Stuff Works (such a cozy name for a website – simply some homey common sense…) is a professionally created propaganda piece. These types of articles are deliberately created to give people who don’t want to see what’s happening over their heads and consider its implications, because understanding the information would be devastating to their worldviews, an excuse to defer to the debunkers as experts. People then will present this propaganda to their friends that are just trying to tell them about real programs that are affecting the lives of them and their loved ones, to continue to fend off the bad news – news that calls into question the nature and trustworthiness of the government and the health systems, among other things. These types of articles generally never actually look at the data that people exposing the geoengineering agenda present. They give people pat answers that seem to make sense on the surface, but that don’t hold up on examination. I will list some of the data points that contradict this kind of thinking below:

1) The article is careful to stress that the people who say that something is being sprayed in the sky are Conspiracy Theorists. This should be a big clue to anyone reading this. The term was created by the CIA in the wake of the Warren Commission Report on the Kennedy assassination to scare people away from looking at the severe inconsistencies and implausibilities of that cover up.

2) Contrails have always been made of ice particles, appearing at high altitudes where the air is very cold. There is a formula for calculating how long they will linger based on altitude, barometric pressure, temperature and humidity. The laws of physics have not changed suddenly at the end of the 1990’s. Contrails do not linger for hours from horizon to horizon and spread out to create dead-looking scummy clouds that often have strange rainbow hues in them where they refract the sun.

3) The materials from the geoengineering spray have been observed to precipitate to the ground and can be observed as major flurries of powders, tiny fibers, or even web-like strands that can cover large areas of ground. These materials have been gathered and tested and they contain the usual suspects: Aluminum oxide and salts, Barium and Strontium salts and other heavy metals, as well as other man-made substances.

4) People have gotten very sick and died after heavy spraying in some places. In Britain in the early 2000’s there was a wave of spraying that jammed the emergency rooms, and so many people died that they needed to bring in refrigerated trucks to use as temporary morgues.

5) Modern High-Bypass Fan Jet Engines are almost incapable of leaving contrails except under the most extreme conditions – The turbo fans that are the main drivers of the engines force massive volumes of non-combusted air around the center combustion chamber, which dry out the exhaust and cool it down, inhibiting the formation of ice particles.

6) Engines have always left other particulates and chemicals in their exhausts. Why did they start appearing differently around 1996 or so? Some analysts have said that more modern engines actually burn cleaner. Again, the laws of physics did not change.

7) People in many locations have tracked the air traffic of the planes leaving geoengineering plumes. Most of them do not appear in logs of commercial traffic. Many of them are flying in prohibited military airspace. The planes also leave their aerosols in obvious weather formations where parallel or grid patterns will appear in concentrated areas that have demonstrated potential to affect weather systems. I have personally seen massive sets of parallel plumes sprayed over Death Valley, the high Sierras, and Baja California, where clear skies in the mornings were completely whited out by the afternoons in areas where there was no logical reason for commercial air traffic.

8) The ingredients of the aerosol plumes have been found in air, on surfaces, in running and standing water, in snow and in the soil. In the soil, aluminum and barium have been found around structures, but not in the soil beneath them. It raises the ph level in soil. In Shasta County, Francis Mangels has found that the soil has generally gone from around 5.8 ph to 6.7 – he’s found much high alkalinity in some places. This raised alkalinity is inhibiting the ability of plants to absorb nutrients and shrubs and trees are dying even where water is plentiful around creeks, etc. The materials have been found in newly created ponds at very high levels. In streams around Shasta the aquatic insect life has been reduced 90 percent or more and fish are starving. Mangels also found aluminum at 61,000 parts per billion in snow on Mt. Shasta. This is not a form of aluminum that occurs in nature, it’s been refined and processed.

9) There are many patents for doing geoengineering that call for precisely the materials that are being found in the wake of the spraying. The patents call for nano-particulates (in some patents smaller than 10 microns) which will float in the sky as long as possible. Nano-particulates have special chemical properties. They are immediately absorbed by the capillaries in the lungs and enter the bloodstream, where they cross the blood-brain barrier without interference. These materials are found in peoples’ blood and hair samples. Nano-particulates are also explosively flammable, which gives an explanation for the much hotter and more dangerous wildfires that have been observed and commented on by fire-fighters in many places.

10) Kristen Meghan, who was an Air Force Base Bio-Environmental Engineer, is a whistle blower who has come forward at great risk to her own safety. She saw the inventory manifests of the geoengineering materials that were coming onto her base, as well as the biological tests on the Air Men and Women on the base that showed the presence of these materials in their bodies.

11) There are dozens of photographs of different kinds of spraying equipment installed inside what appear to be passenger-type jets. Some show patent numbers on the tanks which correspond to patents on environmental aerosol processes.

12) One of the features of the “Polar Vortex” in the Eastern U.S. and other freak storms is the fall of what’s sometimes called “wet snow” that doesn’t melt in a normal way, when the temperatures are above freezing, even up into the low 50’s. People have noticed that this snow often has a chemical smell.

People don’t seem to remember what natural weather looks like anymore. Many younger people have never seen it during their lifetimes. Many don’t want to look at the sky now. How to help people realize what’s going on directly over their heads is a great challenge for us. For instance, I don’t recommend forwarding this email to your friend. You possibly need to spend time with your friends and find out what their core concerns are before trying to present them with specific information. It’s likely that they have fears about issues that stand in the way of being able to listen to ideas that trigger them. Listening is something that needs to go both ways. If you can master deep listening you will likely find the dynamics of your conversations shifting.

It’s important to understand that programs with these kinds of massive impacts will pervade all social institutions. The people who are doing this know that their actions are wrong. It only makes sense to speculate that they’ll use all of the resources at their disposal to keep people from knowing what’s happening or from interfering with their strategies.

And here is a link to a talk by Geoengineering whistle blower Kristen Meghan, in which she comments on the “debunking” sites Metabunk and Contrail Science. Those sites are part of a network of sites all put up by one man who many believe is a government disinfo operative: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jHm0XhtDyZA&spfreload=10

Learning to share controversial information is an art.

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

My Comment on Chuck Norris’ article arguing against “allowing” Americans to use cannabis

Cannabis_Saddhu

Posted at: http://www.wnd.com/2014/01/chuck-norris-smokes-marijuana-debate/

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?

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)

Agenda_21_Cover-500px

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.
