Student_WaitingAdult interrogation tactics in schools turn principals into police officers – School administrators are being trained by the largest interrogation trainer in the world to extract confessions. This is only worsening the school-to-prison pipeline – by Alexa Van Brunt, TheGuardian.com – “Adult interrogation methods do not belong in the classroom, so why are school administrators throughout the United States being trained to use them on their students in order to extract confessions?.. John E. Reid & Associates is the largest interrogation trainer in the world and teaches such methods to hundreds of school administrators each year . Last month, members of the Illinois Principals Association, for instance, could register for a “professional development” event on “Investigative Interviewing and Active Persuasion”. The School Administrators Association of New York State recently offered a workshop for administrators on this same topic, titled “Are you Sure They Are Telling the Truth”?.. These administrators are learning the “ Reid Technique ”, which relies on “maximization” and “minimization” tactics in order to induce suspects to confess. Minimization focuses on reducing a suspect’s feelings of guilt, while maximization is designed to heighten suspect anxiety using confrontation. Both techniques are legal and both are incredibly coercive.”

Russian Crimea: One Year Later – by Tony Cartalucci, ActivistPost.com – Aside from storming several military bases and some tense moments in stand-offs with Ukrainian troops, there was no violence when Russian forces began moving into Crimea… Life in Russian Crimea today is exceedingly normal. While a war rages on next door in Ukraine, the people of Crimea enjoy peace, stability, and a sense of unity and hope for the future. Even with economic setbacks delivered by NATO’s attempts to take the horrors they’ve created within Ukraine, and recreate them on the other side of the border in Russia, people are still able to conduct business more or less as they did before the conflict began. Some say the economy has actually improved despite the sanctions.”

Richard_PanSenator Doctor Crosses Over Into Crazy PANts Conspiracy Theorist – by Ginger Taylor, AgeOfAutism.com – ” Over the last few years we have gotten to know Dr. Richard Pan, California State Senator and Big Med operative (to the tune of $182,000 in campaign donations), as he has not only has worked to force everyone in his state into becoming customers of his donors and a corrupt vaccine program, but treated individual parents trying to earnestly advocate for their vaccine injured children like… well like crap… While in 2012, he claimed he wanted to pass his bill not to remove parental choice, but to merely make sure families are educated on vaccination, he now has thrown that out the window and has a new bill to remove choice all together.”

Federal judges declare cops can arbitrarily arrest hundreds of people; citizens have no freedom of assembly – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “However, the case did not make it to the 2nd Circuit panel, and now Lynch and Calabresi have reversed their earlier ruling, now finding that police officers should have qualified immunity from the lawsuit… ‘They were also certainly aware that no official had expressly authorized the protesters to cross the bridge via the roadway,’ Lynch – speaking of the protestors – wrote for the three-judge panel. ‘To the contrary, the officers would have known that a police official had attempted to advise the protestors through a bullhorn that they were required to disperse.’.. Protestors say that only demonstrators who were in the front of the crowd actually heard the warnings, which was a claim the three-judge panel had previously said was credible… Verheyden-Hilliard described the reversal as “extraordinary” and “shocking.”.. ‘This is a message to the people of New York that if they participate in a police-led escorted march they can be suddenly kettled, corralled and mass-arrested,’ she said.”

Adult-Vax-Schedule-2015Adults Targeted as Federal Government Prepares to Track the Unvaccinated – by Theresa Wrangham, NVIC.org – “During the National Vaccine Advisory Committee’s (NVAC) February meeting, American adults were put on notice by Big Brother that non-compliance with federal vaccine recommendations will not be tolerated. Public health officials have unveiled a new plan to launch a massive nationwide vaccination promotion campaign involving private business and non-profit organizations to pressure all adults to comply with the adult vaccination schedule approved by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC)…  CDC Adult Vaccination Schedule 2015NVAC has authored the National Adult Immunization Plan (NAIP) and, once finalized, the plan will be turned over to the Interagency Adult Immunization Task Force (AIFT) to create an implementation plan. Notably, this task force is composed of “vested interest” stakeholders and no consumer representation for those groups concerned with vaccine safety and informed consent. (emph. added)

Note: from U.S. Defense Department News: NATO Responding to Russia’s Actions Against Ukraine – by Jim Garamone, GlobalSecurity.org – “Russian actions have spurred NATO to make sweeping changes. ‘The adaptation that is taking place now is a very big and fundamental adaptation of the NATO defense posture,’ Stoltenberg said… The alliance is doubling the size of its response force, the secretary general said. Once finished, he said, the lead elements of this force will be able to move in within as little as 48 hours… The alliance, he added, is establishing command and control units in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Romania and Bulgaria… This is just a start, the secretary general said… ‘NATO is ready to defend all allies against any threat, and we see now an increased threat stemming from the concept of hybrid warfare,’ Stoltenberg said… Hybrid warfare is not new, he said. It is basically the combination of military and non-military means applied toward a strategic goal. ‘It’s about covert and overt actions, it’s about deception,’ he said. ‘The new thing is its larger scale, and it’s taking place close to our borders, so we have to focus more on the concept of hybrid warfare.’ ”

Ihor_Kolomoisky-kleptocratUkraine’s Oligarchs Turn on Each Other – by Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews.com – “Last year, Kolomoisky’s brutal militias, which include neo-Nazi brigades, were praised for their fierce fighting against ethnic Russians from the east who were resisting the removal of their president. But now Kolomoisky, whose financial empire is crumbling as Ukraine’s economy founders, has turned his hired guns against the Ukrainian government led by another oligarch, President Petro Poroshenko… On Thursday night, Kolomoisky and his armed men went to Kiev after the government tried to wrest control of the state-owned energy company UkrTransNafta from one of his associates. Kolomoisky and his men raided the company offices to seize and apparently destroy records. As he left the building, he cursed out journalists who had arrived to ask what was going on. He ranted about “Russian saboteurs.” ”

No Longer Quiet on the Eastern Front (Part 2) – This is the second of my three-part series that will explore the expanding fault line between the European Union and Russia, and the early stages of what I believe will eventually become known as the Second Cold War – by Kevin Virgil, ZeroHedge.com – “Unsurprisingly, this contingent of (chicken)hawks is encountering resistance from their EU partners, who are wary of a proxy war on the European continent.  Everyone involved knows that, if push comes to shove, Putin is the only player who is willing to send troops to fight in Ukraine.  There is not a single NATO signatory that is willing to do the same.  This became apparent in 2008, when the Ukrainian government applied to join NATO and was rebuffed by both France and Germany, who cited concerns about “the balance of power between Europe and Russia.”  Ukraine has always known that it cannot count on European assistance in the event of a conflict with Russia, and in fact a 2008 poll found that over 40% of Ukrainians expressed suspicion and distrust toward NATO.”

tyler-durden-stencilThe Federal Reserve Bank Must Be Destroyed – by Patrick Barron, ZeroHedge.com – “It matters not who is in charge of the Fed or what rules Congress may insist that it adopts. Once money printing, via fiat or fractional reserve credit creation, is seen to be both feasible, justified, and legal nothing and no one can stop it. The political pressure to fund government programs will be irresistible. Everyone knows that the Fed seemingly has the ability to solve their problem by monetizing the federal debt. Should it refuse to do so, we would see riots in the streets similar to what is happening in Europe as protesters target the European Central Bank… The only solution is to destroy the monster that makes it all possible, the Fed. Without the ability to sell its debt to its own central bank, government would be forced to live within the means set by the will of the people through their elected representatives. The scales would eventually fall from the eyes of both politicians and public as its becomes clear that what government spends comes at the expense of the private economy.” (emph. added)

When It Becomes Serious, First They Lie–When That Fails, They Arrest You – When lying is no longer enough to gain compliance, then the organs of security are unleashed on dissent and resistance – by Charles Hugh Smith, InformationClearingHouse.info – “Rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s is no longer enough; abiding by the laws of the land are no longer enough. What the state demands is not just compliance with its countless laws and regulations, but absolute obedience to its narratives and policies…  Anyone who withholds obedience is quickly deemed a traitor–not to the nation or its Constitution, but to the state itself, which is ultimately a collection of cronies and self-serving vested interests protecting their fiefdoms at the expense of the citizenry…  When lying is no longer enough to gain compliance, then the organs of security are unleashed on dissent and resistance.This process is well under way in nation-states around the world… If I had to pick the two key operative dynamics of the next 20 years, I would choose:  1. The over-expansion and implosion of credit/debt bubbles.  2. The over-reach of the central state as it seeks to win the hearts and minds of its people by ruthlessly suppressing dissent.”

Abdul-Malik_al-HouthiUS, Israel behind Yemen terrorist attacks: Houthi leader – from PressTV.ir – “Abdul-Malik al-Houthi made the remarks in a televised address on Sunday in reaction to the March 20 deadly attacks which targeted Yemeni worshippers at mosques… Over 140 people were killed and more than 350 suffered injuries in three bomb attacks at the Badr mosque in southern Sana’a and the al-Hashoosh mosque in the northern part of the capital. The ISIL Takfiri terrorist group claimed responsibility for the attacks… The attacks show that the terrorists are unfamiliar with humane values, he said, adding that the attacks have uncovered the vicious nature of their perpetrators.”

Guiding Obama into Global Make-Believe – by Ray McGovern, OpEdNews.com – “In prepared testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Assistant Secretary Nuland had insinuated that the Russians and the ethnic Russian rebels were to blame. She said, ‘In eastern Ukraine, Russia and its separatist puppets unleashed unspeakable violence and pillage; MH-17 was shot down.’.. This may have been another example of Nuland using “rhetoric” to shape the debate, but it prompted Parry to ask the DNI’s office about what evidence there was to support Nuland’s finger-pointing in this tragic incident that killed 298 people… Kathleen Butler, a DNI spokesperson, insisted that the U.S. intelligence assessment on MH-17 had not changed since July 22, 2014, five days after the shoot-down when the DNI’s office distributed a sketchy report suggesting Russian complicity based largely on what was available on social media.”

Vaccine witch hunt accelerates as city council members told they cannot have opinions on vaccines unless the opinions match official propaganda – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – ” ‘I don’t think he would have been appointed to the board of health by this city council had we known that he had anti-vaccination and anti-science views on this issue,’ said Ben Stuckart, the Spokane City Council President… Fagan maintains that there are studies that have been conducted questioning the effectiveness and safety of immunizations, adding that some lawsuits are also challenging their efficacy. He also says he is speaking his mind as he is permitted to do under the First Amendment’s freedom of speech clause… ‘I believe that the science of vaccinations is not settled yet,’ said Fagan… Other council members, however, say Fagan ought to be encouraging everyone to get vaccines, even if they don’t want them or they haven’t been shown to be safe or effective.

Martelly-ClintonUS Imperialism in Haiti. Criminality of the Michel Martelly Regime – by Ezili Dantò, GlobalResearch.ca – “It’s all true and Haitians in our circle have been naming these crimes and fighting this corruption daily. The misinformation part is that Michel Martelly, Laurent Lamothe and the rest of the US thugs were not put in power by a free Haiti. They’re mere employees of the US bosses who put them in power and keep them in power against the Haitian people’s constant dissent and struggle. The New York Times did not point out that Michel Martelly has been ruling by decree since before Parliament was officially dissolved. It did not list the deep politics and crimes of the top US-Euro bosses in Haiti that orchestrated this travesty. Never mentioned the respondeat superior – how Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finished the Bushes’ project to destroy democracy and installed outright dictatorship back into Haiti.”

Cuba – Between a Rock and a Hard Place – by Peter Koenig, GlobalResearch.ca – “Two days after Obama’s bold initiative, on 19 December 2015, he went to the Washington Press Club to tell a horde of puppet journalists, conservative politicians and onlookers that soft measures, like reestablishing diplomatic relations with Havana might be more successful in bringing the desired regime change to Cuba than more years of isolation. He couldn’t have been more direct and more honest about his intention. The Cuban Government and whoever else listened didn’t miss the point.”

A Family Business of Perpetual War – Exclusive: Victoria Nuland and Robert Kagan have a great mom-and-pop business going. From the State Department, she generates wars and – from op-ed pages – he demands Congress buy more weapons. There’s a pay-off, too, as grateful military contractors kick in money to think tanks where other Kagans work – by Robert Parry, ConsortiumNews.com – “In May 2014, Kagan published a lengthy essay in The New Republic entitled “Superpowers Don’t Get to Retire,” in which Kagan castigated Obama for failing to sustain American dominance in the world and demanding a more muscular U.S. posture toward adversaries… According to a New York Times article about how the essay took shape and its aftermath, writer Jason Horowitz reported that Kagan and Nuland shared a common world view as well as professional ambitions, with Nuland editing Kagan’s articles, including the one tearing down her ostensible boss… Though Nuland wouldn’t comment specifically on her husband’s attack on Obama, she indicated that she held similar views. ‘But suffice to say,’ Nuland said, ‘that nothing goes out of the house that I don’t think is worthy of his talents. Let’s put it that way.’ ”

Poroshenko Says 30% of Soldiers from First-Wave Mobilization Deserted – from Russia-Insider.com – “Almost a third ( 30 per cent) of the first wave of mobilized soldiers are deserters,Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced in an interview with TV channel “Inter”, which aired on Saturday evening, March 21. Excerpt from RIA Novosti: ‘And they were not the sort of guys who did not like the Ukraine. They were just not trained, without adequate preparation, without proper weapons. Coming under the first shelling, psychologically have broken and then they could not bring themselves to go further in the fight,’- said the president.”

BreedloveNATO’s Creepy New Plan to Infiltrate Twitter and Facebook – NATO has announced that “countering false Russian narratives on social media” is a major priority – by Adam Johnson, Alternet.org – “While details of such a plan remain vague, this mindset is part of a broader trend of social media psychological warfare that has been emerging largely unnoticed over the past five years. The first question that is rarely asked by our media is the most important one: what constitutes a “false narrative,” and who decides what constitutes one? Recent attempts by UK authorities to stifle the speech of the Russian-backed, English-language TV station RT show that false narratives are whatever Western governments determine they are.”

FEMA to deny funds to warming deniers – “Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster-preparedness funds only for states whose governors approve hazard-mitigation plans that address climate change”- from MyTechnologyWorld9.blogspot.com – “This may put several Republican governors who maintain that the Earth isn’t warming due to human activities, or prefer to take no action, in a political bind. Their position may block their states’ access to hundreds of millions of dollars in FEMA funds. In the last five years, the agency has awarded an average $1 billion a year in grants to states and territories for taking steps to mitigate the effects of disasters… ‘If a state has a climate denier governor that doesn’t want to accept a plan, that would risk mitigation work not getting done because of politics,’ said Becky Hammer, an attorney with the Natural Resources Defense Council’s water program. ‘The governor would be increasing the risk to citizens in that state’ because of his climate beliefs.

US-led strikes kill over 60 Syrian civilians – from PressTV.ir – “The Britain-based so-called Syrian Observatory for Human Rights announced on Monday that 66 civilians, among them ten children and six women, died when the air raids hit oil fields and refineries in Syria’s northern province of al-Raqqa, the eastern Deir al-Zor Province, al-Hassakah and Idlib provinces in the northeast as well as the town of Manbij, located 446 kilometers (277 miles) north of the capital, Damascus… Since September 2014, the US along with its regional allies has been conducting airstrikes against the ISIL inside Syria without any authorization from Damascus or a UN mandate.This is while many of the countries joining the so-called anti-terror coalition, such as Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar, have been the staunch supporters of the Takfiri elements fighting against the Syrian government.”

Jeh_Johnson-I_WantNAU at Work? Canadian, Mexican Border Agents Can Now Work Within US, Carry Firearms – from TheDailyBell.com – “Public Safety Minister Steven Blaney and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson have signed a customs pre-clearance agreement for rail, land and sea travel that was years in the making. The arrangement would allow customs agents to work in each other’s countries, which means they could screen passengers away from the border and ease the choke points… …Maryscott Greenwood of the Canadian American Business Council said the agreement will use modern technology to speed up things at the border. ‘It’s dramatic, it’s historic, it’s a big day in Canada-U.S. relations,’ she said. The statement says the agreement applies to all modes of transport, which could include passenger vehicles. It also says customs agents will be allowed to carry firearms in each other’s countries.” – and don’t forget, the NAU is a CONSPIRACY THEORY.

US_Drone-Latakia_SyriaBREAKING: US Plane Shot Down by Syrian Air Defenses Over Latakia – from 21stCenturyWire.com – “The location of this incident is absolutely key to this story. It happened far away from “ISIS-held territory”. If the US were conducting surveillance against Syrian government military targets, assets or even persons – would be the case with CIA-JSOC targeted drone assassinations - and not against ‘ISIS/ISIL’ targets around Raqqa, Syria, then this would indicate a CIA intelligence-gathering operation, or assassination operation originating in Erbil. As it turns out, Erbil is classified as a ‘Joint Operating Center’ which means that drones there could be under CIA rather than US military command.”

Putin To Nationalise Rothschild Central Bank – from Euro-med.dk via YourNewsWire.com – “To put the plan straightforward: 1. A split in the government, 2. Identification of the fifth column in government, in business, in the media, 3. purge 4. a parallel active position on the Ukraine, because Ukraine and Russia is the same – like Putin said. With these words he defined his position and strategy for Russia… Nationalization of the Central Bank of Russia would be the first signal and mean the final breach with Rothschild´s City of London / the British Empire / the “British (banksters) Crown” and its tool, the United States. Their Relationship has been tense since Putin´s seizure of the Rothschild/Chodorkowsky’s Yukos shares. Therefore, Putin hesitates with the nationalization. He also still needs authorization to enforce his plan as a strong man. For this he needs a “great necessity” which is supposedly imminent because of US aggression.”

Schuchat-WarrenCDC blatantly lied about vaccine safety in congressional hearings – by Ethan A. Huff, NaturalNews.com – “During a recent congressional hearing, National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases Director Dr. Anne Schuchat, M.D., told Congress that there is absolutely no scientific evidence that vaccines cause autism, mental disorders, allergies or autoimmune disease… Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren, a Big Pharma hack who recently proposed eliminating all criminal penalties for drug companies that injure or kill people with their deadly products, asked Dr. Schuchat a series of softball questions about vaccines, upon which she denied that vaccines are in any way dangerous… The hearing was apparently held to put “vaccine conspiracy theorists in their place,” to quote the drug industry-sponsored news company MSNBC. But what it actually did was prove, yet again, that those entrusted with protecting public health are actively lying to the American public in order to push the vaccine agenda.” (emph. added)

Already Underway: Smart A.I. Running Our Police and Cities – by Pippa King, 21stCenturyWire.com “Of course, because CCTV cameras are not at head height and persons of interest do not always have their face aimed at the camera, it could be the back or top of the head or the particular person could be wearing a cap, therefore analysing the whole body makes sense. It’s still the same outcome as using our biometrics, agencies being able to track us individually, covertly…Moving surveillance cameras to a height that facial recognition software can operate seems to be where polices agencies are moving towards. On March 9th Metropolitan Police Commissioner Sir Bernard Hogan-Howe called for surveillance cameras to be moved to head height;.. ‘We‘ve got a strategy to encourage people to do with their cameras, is to move them down to eye level… facial recognition software has got better it means we can apply the software to the images of burglaries or robberies whatever, so we can compare those images with the images we take when we arrest people.’ ”

Stephen_Harper-Zio-GlobalistImpending Threat to Canadian Democracy: Harper Government’s “Anti-Terrorism Act” isn’t about Terrorism, it’s a Torture Act – by Prof Michael Keefer, GlobalResearch.ca – “But the Anti-Terrorism Act is more mortally dangerous to Canadian democracy than even these indications would suggest. A central section of the act empowers CSIS agents to obtain judicial warrants—on mere suspicion, with no requirement for supporting evidence—that will allow them to supplement other disruptive actions against purported enemies of Harperland with acts that directly violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and other Canadian laws… The only constraints placed on this legalized law-breaking are that CSIS agents shall not “(a) cause, intentionally or by criminal negligence, death or bodily harm to an individual; (b) wilfully attempt in any manner to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice; or (c) violate the sexual integrity of an individual.” (emph. added) – OK, now I feel better about this…

USDX Deflation – by Alfred Adask, Adask.wordpress.com – “Given that government needs inflation to: 1) devalue the fiat dollar and allow the gov-co to repay the National Debt with “cheaper dollars”; and 2) stimulate the economy—the past 7 or 8 months (since July of A.D. 2014), something really strange has been happening.  As measured on the US Dollar Index (USDX), the purchasing power of the fiat dollar (as compared to half a dozen other fiat currencies) has jumped by 25%… That’s evidence of deflation… P.S.  When I wrote the previous article last Saturday, I predicted that the “vertical” rise in the dollar’s value could not last long and, when it turned, it would most likely go almost straight down… Today, Wednesday, the fiat dollar fell almost two points on the USDX… It’s too early to say that that astonishing reversal marks an end to the deflationary spike in the USDX–but it might.  Tomorrow, the dollar might again spike upward.  But there’s at least a chance that today’s 2-point fall on the USDX might be evidence that much of what I’ve written above is roughly correct… We shall see.

Dino-ChemtrailsFedGov Moves To Seize Water Rights From 100,000 Montanans: “All Surface Water And Wells” – by Jeremiah Johnson, SHTFPlan.com – “We can see a pattern developing.  Local and state politicians use the Indian tribes as a tool to pursue a much larger agenda: the removal of private property from the hands of citizens and the transfer of control into the hands of the federal government.  The politicians then receive federal funding to pursue their initiatives.  Now a long line of bureaucrats enters the parade: the EPA to save the environment, the DOJ to save the legal rights of the oppressed, the Department of the Interior to manage the tribes’ revenues, and the DHS as the protector-enforcer… There are many areas in the United States where water rights are either under assault or threatened by the federal government in this manner: the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, the waters of the Colorado River, and the Ogallala Aquifer (used by almost ¼ of the U.S.), to name a few.  The important issue to consider with this is the abrogation of Constitutional Law and private property rights and the federal government making its own laws by bureaucratic edict.

Obscure California Committee Moves to Expand How Police Access and Use DMV Photos – by Dave Maass, EFF.org – “By our count, that’s three times the CLETS committee and subcommittee has been told that their plans run counter to the law and three times they’ve decided to move forward anyway. There may be a fourth time, depending on how those closed-door meetings went, which we may learn more about at the committees’ March 25 meetings in Folsom… EFF is extremely concerned about the prospects of police around the country having the ability to access Californians’ records with insufficient accountability measures in place. We have also long been wary of the growing use of facial recognition technology, which can allow police to identify everyday citizens who aren’t involved in a crime, including through scanning photos on social media. Most of all, we are alarmed at how quickly these advisory committees are moving forward while dismissing the DMV’s legal concerns.”

Rami_Abdul_RahmanHere We Go Again: YouTube Clips Of Syrian “Chemical Attacks” Are Back – Meet The Man Behind The Propaganda – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.org – According to Reuters, “a group monitoring the Syrian civil war said on Tuesday government forces carried out a poison gas attack that killed six people in the northwest, and medics posted videos of children suffering what they said was suffocation.” Of course it could be just a bunch of actors like in the summer of 2013, but that’s irrelevant – there is a YouTube clip out there and it is only a matter of time before John Kerry latches on to it as this year’s pretext to declare war on Syria… Syria would laugh if it could, however it can’t: a Syrian military source described the report of an attack in the village of Sarmin in Idlib province as propaganda. ‘We confirm that we would not use this type of weapon, and we don’t need to use it,’ the source said… Too late: the “facts” are out there: ‘The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which tracks the conflict through a network of sources, said the six dead included a man, his wife and their three children. It cited medical sources as saying they died as a result of gas from barrel bombs dropped late on Monday and that the chemical used was likely chlorine. Dozens more were wounded in the attack, the Observatory said. Reuters could not independently verify the report.’ ”

Canadian Minister: Chris Alexander Delivers a Troubling Speech on Ukraine – Video and Transcript – “Vladimir Putin is behaving like a terrorist.” – from InformationClearingHouse.info – “We know, as you know, that Vladimir Putin is only going to face his comeuppance, that his whole, mad nightmare is only going to come apart at the seams, when the whole world is standing against him, with every option on the table, denouncing his illegal action and standing with Ukraine with military assistance, and with every other form of assistance… This is the biggest issue facing the world today…in my view. I think in the view of our prime minister, and our team…Yes, there is terrorism. Vladimir Putin is behaving like a terrorist. And he was taught by an organization, trained by an organization that specialized in training terrorists. So there’s no surprise there. ”

How The CIA Funds Terrorism In Plain Sight – by Stuart Hooper, 21stCenturyWire.com – “The ideas presented above suggest that al Qaeda getting the CIA’s money was done without their knowledge and was an unintended consequence of funneling cash-for-influence into Kabul. Another analytical option also exists – money laundering… It is entirely possible that the CIA knew exactly what this money was going to be used for. Would they not have had the entire Presidential Palace under constant surveillance? Surely, the CIA would want to know that their cash was indeed buying the influence they so desired. It is also ridiculous to think that the agency would not have known about the situation with the Afghan diplomat; they are paid to know such things… Therefore, could the CIA have been laundering money to al Qaeda? Sending cash to the Afghan government would probably qualify as at least somewhat legal, meaning it would be possible to claim ignorance when it comes to that cash finding its way to al Qaeda – ‘How could we possibly know they would use it like that?!’ In the previous paragraph we just laid out exactly how that would be possible.

GooglitesWill Google Game the System against Natural Health? – from ANH-USA.org – “The software works by tapping into the Knowledge Vault, a database of “facts” that Google has pulled off the Internet. Apparently, if a significant majority of Internet sites agree on a statement, it is considered a reasonable proxy for the truth. Pages that contain contradictory information are bumped down the rankings—which means that anything “alternative” will, by definition, be ranked lower… Google’s ranking system is its own business, but it currently enjoys a virtual monopoly in the field, and needs to stick to a system that is transparently objective. Otherwise, searchers should beware of the gatekeepers who make behind-the-scenes decisions about what information we have access to. New strategies and methods for searching the web would be needed if Google becomes a source of misinformation in our field the way Wikipedia already is.” (emph. added)

Exposed: Unions involved in sinister covert operations – Project C.O.M.E.T. exposed – by Shepard Ambellas, Intellihub.com – “Once the union “salters” reach over 50% of the total employees, they legally have the right to organize. At this stage a union official is sent to the company owner to give them a notice that their company has over 50% of union members in his or her force. The union will then demand that the owner sign a union contract or they will pull all of their employees, leaving the owner high and dry,  knowing very well that the owner will be unable to replace these workers in any sort of timely manner, thus putting the owner in a bind due to the busy nature of the corporation that was “salted” in the first place. If the union pulls its workers the owner likely faces the prospect of going out of business. If the owner is bold and decides to fire all the union workers the union will instantly report this to the Dept. of Labor. This is known as “discrimination of union members”. The owner will then be forced to rehire the workers and pay them back wages for every day the workers were off work — just another example of a provision put into place by illegal mob dealings with judges.

Thierry_Meyssan2 What lies behind the anti “conspiracy theorist” discourse – The State Against The Republic – by Thierry Meyssan, VoltaireNet.org – The terms “conspiracy theories” and “conspiracy theorism” have developed in France in the wake of the publication of my book on US imperialism post-September 11, titled The Big Lie. At the time, we had trouble understanding what the terms meant because they referred to American political history. In the United States, are commonly called “conspiracy theorists” those according to whom President Kennedy had not been assassinated by one man but by many, forming a conspiracy (in the judicial sense). Over time, these expressions entered in the French language and have overlapped with memories of the 30s and the Second World War, those of the denunciation of the “Jewish conspiracy”… Let’s not be naive, we are approaching an inevitable showdown. It remains to be determined which instance, necessarily administrative, will be in charge of censorship and what will be its criteria.”

France Moves to Make ‘Conspiracy Theories’ Illegal by Government Decree – from 21stCenturyWire – “Putting aside history’s ‘big ticket’ items though, the real reason for this authoritarian trend is much more fundamental. By knocking out their intellectual competition, political elites and their media moguls hope to minimalize, and thus eliminate any alternative analysis and opinion by applying the completely open-ended and arbitrary label of “extremist” to speech. They want to wind back the clock, where a pre-internet, monolithic corporate media cartel held a monopoly on ideas… Although France has taken the lead in this inter-governmental effort (see below), the preliminary assault began this past fall with British Prime Minster David Cameron publicly announcing on two separate occasions, that all of these so-called ‘conspiracy theories’ (anything which challenges the official orthodoxy) should be deemed as “extremist” and equivalent to “terrorist” and should be purged from society on the grounds of ‘national security’. The first came with Cameron’s warped speech at the UN, and afterwards, a similar charge was made by the UK leader against anyone who dares press the issue of institutional paedophilia and child abuse.”

Joel_Harding-Info_OpsCan the Ukrainian Government Target American Journalists in America? – by George Eliason – “If you are a journalist writing about or a person concerned about issues like Free Speech, read or write in alternative media or news, Occupy movement, Ferguson, Gaza, Ukraine, Russia, police brutality, US interventionism, fair government, homelessness, keeping the government accountable, representative government, government intrusions like the NSA is doing, or you are liberal, progressive, libertarian, conservative, separation of church and state, religion, … If you have a website, write, read, or like something in social media that strays outside the new lines the war isn’t coming, its now here… What would we do? Disrupt, deny, degrade, deceive, corrupt, usurp or destroy the information. The information, please don’t forget, is the ultimate objective of cyber. That will directly impact the decision-making process of the adversary’s leader who is the ultimate target.”- Joel Harding on Ukraine’s cyber strategy”

U.S. Treasury secretary says ‘dangerous’ not to pass IMF reforms – by Anna Yukhananov, Reuters.com – “U.S. Treasury Secretary Jack Lew on Wednesday said failure by Congress to authorize reforms at the International Monetary Fund it was “dangerous” and would limit U.S. leverage on issues such as the China-led infrastructure bank… But a senior Republican lawmaker expressed doubt Congress would take up the reforms this year, increasing the likelihood the IMF would seek to move ahead without the United States… The fund’s member countries agreed in 2010 to reform the institution to give more say to emerging countries, but the Obama administration has so far been unable to persuade Congress to pass necessary funding changes.”

David_Tohidy-w-Petitions_to_MailCanadian Man Acts to Stop Chemtrails –  by Davoud Tohidy, HenryMakow.com – “I believe chemtrails exist because I see them being sprayed with my own eyes. I have felt different side effects such as arthritis at my age!! Neck ache for two weeks which are symptoms of chemtrails. Secondly, credible individuals such as Ted Gunderson former L.A FBI chief and a  NASA Scientist talk about Chemtrails. Plus, there are several patents proving that the technology exists… I contacted private investigators, politicians, newspapers, churches, activists, organizations, companies and people all around the world and sent them the pdf file via email… Despite the criminals’ efforts to stop this Petition, our Petition was presented to Parliament by Mr. Alex Atamanenko, MP  on Oct 21, 2013.  and I have created a Youtube of the presentation. It has been recorded in Hansard and this is a great accomplishment. The government has 45 days to answer, which I expect will be lies and denials. That is why I am preparing a criminal lawsuit. [Listen to an interview with Atamenenko here.]…Please join me at my website  and help to send some criminals behind the crime of geoengineering / Chemtrails spraying behind bars for the rest for their lives. You can Donate or be a Plaintiff in the lawsuit. I guaranty that every dollar of your donations will be spent towards restoring our nature and our planet.”

The Sky Does NOT Lie – Funny thing, an aerosol assault on sunshine sure appears to be what I’m seeing – by Rand Clifford, VeteransToday.com – “When this morning’s fog began to clear, spray planes had obviously been very busy dogging the sun. Most planes sprayed horizon to horizon east to west or west to east, eighty percent of them near the path of the sun. Sometimes they don’t turn on the spray until approaching the sun…and turn off the spray a ways past the sun. Also, on moderate spray days, virtually all aerosol is sprayed near the track of the sun. So SRM is obviously an objective…but they also spray at night, often in the face of the moon. Complications galore, the aerosols are quite the toolkit, but SAG is uncomplicated in terms of exactly what it looks like right now: spraying of aerosol sunscreen… Another plane is spraying east-to-west just below the plane clearing the Idaho panhandle, spraying Montana. In a stretch of a trail several minutes old, aerosols are getting ropy on the downside…weepy-looking…taking on an edge of teeth on a giant bandsaw blade; aerosols cutting through stratosphere to smear into cloud… Touchdown, the sun has fuzzed out of sight in the creamy end zone.

Mr_Bill-O-No-GMOGMO imperialism: Bill Gates and biotech industry are forcing unwilling African countries to accept costly, untested GMOs – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – ” ‘The U.S., the world’s top producer of GM crops, is seeking new markets for American GM crops in Africa,’ said Haidee Swanby of the African Center for Biosafety, which authored the report commissioned by Friends of the Earth International. ‘The U.S. administration’s strategy consists of assisting African nations to produce biosafety laws that promote agribusiness interests instead of protecting Africans from the potential threats of GM crops.’.. In addition, the new report “exposes” the manner in which Monsanto uses its clout to negatively influence biosafety measures in African nations, how the agri-giant gets its regulatory approval for its products, and opens the door for its GMO maize.”

Tyler_Durden-SoapGreeks Take It To The Mattresses As Graccident Looms – by Tyler Durden – “Bank of Greece data also revealed how much more onerous central borrowing is becoming for Greek banks. For example in December Greek banks posted €10bn of extra collateral for borrowing an additional €11bn from the central bank, in January they posted €38bn of extra collateral for borrowing an additional €30bn and in February they posted €47bn of extra collateral for borrowing an additional €17bn. As of the end of February Greek banks had €104bn of central bank borrowing with collateral of €180bn, i.e. the average haircut was 42%… ….and on what happens next… What will happen if Greek banks reach the maximum borrowing estimated above? The ECB has the flexibility to adjust haircuts to allow Greek banks to borrow more from the Bank of Greece for a given amount of collateral. So there is some flexibility in order to avoid triggering capital controls but what is clear is that the Greek banking system cannot withstand another big wave of deposit outflows.”

DoD Moves Forward on Ukraine National Guard Training – by Cheryl Pellerin, GlobalSecurity.org – “”We plan on sending about 290 U.S. service members, specifically paratroopers from the [Army’s] mighty 173rd ‘Sky Soldiers’ Airborne Brigade based in Vicenza, Italy,” he said, to train six Ukraine National Guard companies with a focus on internal security and territorial defense… The training will be conducted in western Ukraine at the International Peacekeeping and Security Center (War is Peace) in Yavoriv, near the border with Poland, Pentagon spokeswoman Eileen Lainez said… There will also be training for headquarters personnel, she added, focusing on the continued professionalization of Ukrainian staff members… The training is part of a long-term strategy to build Ukraine’s capacity and capabilities, she added, and to help increase the professionalism of its forces… Also in the region, Warren said, U.S. European Command yesterday began executing a large-scale defense exercise called Austere Challenge 2015 that will involve 4,000 U.S. service members… The exercise consists of command-post simulations and aims to train and prepare Eucom and component command headquarters staffs to plan for and respond to crises, Warren said. The exercise is taking place at several locations in Germany and the United Kingdom, he added.” (emph. added)

Guy_McPhersonA Meeting With Scientist Guy McPherson – by Dane Wigington, GeoengineeringWatch.org – “Guy seemed to be in a defensive stance when he stated the following to me “geoengineering isn’t happening”.  After a moments pause I replied that there was no question of the geoengineering reality as we have film footage of numerous military tankers spraying at altitude, KC 10s, KC 135s, C-17 Globmasters, etc. In regard to the film footage I mentioned that we had, Guy responded “no you don’t” (what kind of reply is this?). I reiterated that we absolutely do have film footage of jet tankers spraying taken up close at altitude (in addition to the lab tests and mountains of additional data, all of which McPherson refused to consider in any way). McPherson then said “If you choose to believe in the flying spaghetti monster, that does not mean I have to”. This is word for word what he said. How completely astounding is this statement? I pointed out to Guy that the entire science community was openly and actively discussing the issue of geoengineering and the need to deploy these programs. Governments around the globe are doing the same.” (emph. added)

The counted: inside the search for the real number of police killings in the US – by Tom McCarthy, TheGuardian.com – “…the United States has no uniform count of people killed by police officers. The problem of missing data stems from more than just police obstructionism or oversight. A national infrastructure for data collection has never been built. Instead a confusing mosaic of city, state and county reporting leaves too many cracks for data to fall through, without imposing consequences for local police failing to report when they kill those they are sworn to protect… A justice department investigation of the FBI’s published statistics has already revealed the worst from a data standpoint: more than half the people killed by local and state law enforcement officers in the US went uncounted in the country’s most authoritative crime statistics every year, for almost a decade.”

Grad_LauncherJunk metal show in Kiev and Poroshenko’s mental defeat – by Andrey Fomin, VoltaireNet.org – “Ok, the conclusion of this grotesque exhibition in Kiev is simple: the incumbent Ukrainian authorities do not have a single serious evidence proving thier hysterical claims about “the Russian aggression in Ukraine”. Both their internal and external policies are false and based on deliberate lies and erroneous presumptions. Being unable to change the bellicose rhytoric, president Poroshenko’s regime is rapidly sliding into total collapse.”

Chemtrails Not Just for Weather Modification Anymore: Vaccines On The Wind – by Roger Landr, TheLibertyBeacon.com – “A UC biomedical engineering study appearing in the journal Nature Nanotechnology, Sept. 27, 2009, successfully inserted the modified core of a nanomotor, a microscopic biological machine, into a lipid membrane. The resulting channel enabled them to move both single- and double-stranded DNA through the membrane… Doug Dorst, a microbiologist and vaccine critic in South Wales, says these advances have an immense appeal to vaccine makers. “Biotech companies and their researchers have quickly moved most funding initiatives towards nanotechnology to increase the potency of their vaccines,” he said. If microorganisms inside of vaccines can be coaxed into targeting or invading specific cells, they could achieve their goal at an accelerated rate over conventional vaccines. “Depending on which side of the vaccine debate you’re on, whether pro or con, nanobots inside vaccine preparations could advance their effectiveness exponentially by either dramatically improving or destroying immunity depending on their design,” he added. – A small part of the great info in this article

What Chemtrails Are Doing To Your Brain w/Video – Neurosurgeon Dr. Russell Blaylock Reveals Shocking Facts – by Dr. Russell Blaylock, EducateYourself.org – “My major concern is that there is evidence that they are spraying tons of nanosized aluminum compounds. It has been demonstrated in the scientific and medical literature that nanosized particles are infinitely more reactive and induce intense inflammation in a number of tissues. Of special concern is the effect of these nanoparticles on the brain and spinal cord, as a growing list of neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s dementia, Parkinson’s disease and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) are strongly related to exposure to environmental aluminum… Nanoparticles of aluminum are not only infinitely more inflammatory, they also easily penetrate the brain by a number of routes, including the blood and olfactory nerves (the smell nerves in the nose). Studies have shown that these particles pass along the olfactory neural tracts, which connect directly to the area of the brain that is not only most effected by Alzheimer’s disease, but also the earliest affected in the course of the disease. It also has the highest level of brain aluminum in Alzheimer’s cases.”

Dieudonne-CourtFrench comedian sentenced for ‘condoning terrorism’ in FB post – from RT.com – “The 49-year-old Dieudonne M’bala M’bala, or simply Dieudonne has been convicted for being “an apologist for terrorism” over a Facebook post he made following attacks in France that killed 17 people… “I feel like Charlie Coulibaly,” he wrote in a coined phrase on Facebook on January 11, four days after the Charlie Hebdo attack, allegedly making a mockery of the slogan “Je suis Charlie” (I am Charlie) a global rallying cry against extremism. The second part of the phrase mimicked the name of Amedy Coulibaly, the gunman who killed four people at a Paris kosher supermarket… Prosecutor Annabelle Philippe argued that Dieudonne is guilty of presenting ‘in a favourable light the acts committed by Amedy Coulibaly.’ ‘The feeling of hostility towards the Jewish community that Dieudonne kept up in front of a public attracted by his charisma increases his responsibility,’ the court argued. The prosecution was seeking a harsher sentence of up to 7 years in prison and a potential 100,000 euro ($106,000) fine… Dieudonne, who was not present at court during the sentencing on Wednesday, was also fined €30,000 ($35,000), which, if not paid, will result in a prison term.” (emph. added)

Delta_Force-KobaniUS Special Forces caught red-handed in Syria – from NSNBC.me – “News about the presence of U.S. and allied special forces is not a novelty per se. In 2012 a senior British Whitehall official would leak to The Daily Star that British SAS and other NATO member’s special forces had been operating in Syria for months… Also in 2012, nsnbc international obtained a copy of the U.S. Special Forces training circular TC 18-01 entitled Special Forces Unconventional Warfare… A study of the document revealed that the wars on Libya, Syria and Iraq follow a detailed U.S. strategy that outlines a step-by-step subversion of a country from the assessment of a feasible, cooperative opposition to guerrilla war and regime change.”

A Guide to Washington’s Covert Agenda in the Ukraine – Despite all of the evidence to the contrary, Washington is still as determined as ever to try and escalate tensions in the Ukraine – by 21stCenturyWire.com and Robert Parry – “For the New York Times, the Washington Post and the rest of major U.S. press, everything has been explained as “Russian aggression” with Putin supposedly having plotted the entire series of events as a way to conquer much of Europe as the new Hitler. Even though the evidence reveals that Putin was caught off-guard by the coup next door, the U.S. media has insisted on simply passing along Nuland’s propaganda themes… Thus, it is a safe bet that when the current ceasefire breaks down and the killing resumes, all the American people will hear is that it was Putin’s fault, that he conspired to destroy the peace as part of his grand scheme of “aggression.” And, the Nuland-Yatsenyuk sabotage of Minsk-2 will be the next part of this troubling story to disappear into the memory hole.”

Adam_AbrahamStillness and the Power of Thoughts – by Adam Abraham, Phaelosopher.com – “Though immeasurable, thoughts are not “still.” Even they have, and cause motion. The Russell’s make it clear that the quality of Stillness allows differentials of motion to occur. When factored in with intelligent imagining, said differentials of movement, on levels both within, and beyond our “bandwidth” of material sense perception, create the infinite variety that we know as “Life.”.. Stillness is present as a Source and Center of all motion. As such, Stillness will be an integral part of each thought, which is  in motion, though invisible, as it is to any visible movement, from subatomic, to macroscosmic. Stillness is the fulcrum between the complementary polar wave forms that are normally perceived as “opposing” “positive” and “negative” in their orientation.”

Commentary: The feds’ plan to force vaccines on adults – by Lee Hieb, M.D., WND.com – “Like everything else that’s truly important, it is very simple: If you Americans do not stand against this, it’s over. What liberty do you have if the federal government can force you to have a medical procedure, can force you to surrender your very body to their control? Answer: none. Because there is nothing that cannot be justified on the basis of “the good of society.” The Jewish Holocaust, the Great Leap Forward, the killing of the Kulaks, American Eugenics, Tuskegee experimentation, the cold water experiments of Birkenau, Dachau and Auschwitz, all were justified at the time by their respective leaders as for the good of society. Even doctors start believing that they can determine who should die or be sterilized for the good of the whole society. And if you as a doctor have qualms, it is much easier to just throw up your hands and say you have no choice – it’s a government mandate… The position paper of the Department of Health and Human Services refers repeatedly to consulting the multiple “stakeholders” involved in vaccination decisions: “synergies between state, local, territorial, and tribal governments; health care providers; advocacy groups; vaccine manufacturers; academia and research organizations; payers and health plans; employers; and the general public.” They even cite the military. But, who is the real stakeholder? It is you. There is no “general public” when it comes to decisions about your personal health. No one cares more about the risks versus benefits of vaccination than you do personally. To leave it to a group, to treat you as a member of a group for medical care, is not ethical medicine. It is the stuff of jails and forced labor camps and socialist hellholes – and apparently American academia and bureaucrats. It is time to say no. Although he was probably confused at the time, I’ll quote Al Sharpton: “Resists we much.” (emph. added)

Charles_WindsorPrince Charles to Americans: Capitalism Has “Enormous Shortcomings” – by Patch Adams, TheGatewayPundit.com – ” ‘The future King gave a speech yesterday tackling the environmental and economic issues faces the world at the Cathedral of the Assumption in Louisville, Kentucky… …The Prince of Wales told the invited audience: ‘We are standing at a moment of substantial transition where we face the dual challenges of a world view and an economic system that seem to have enormous shortcomings, together with an environmental crisis – including that of climate change – which threatens to engulf us all.’ ” (emph. added)

What’s Your “Daily Value” of Glyphosate? – by Catherine J. Frompovich, ActivistPost.com – “I think a similar connection can be made regarding canola oil, since many people I know experience gastrointestinal distress after eating that highly-touted oil. The Cornucopia Institute’s “Gut-Wrenching: New Studies Reveal the Insidious Effects of Glyphosate” is something every person ought to read and seriously consider, I think. And, believe it or not, but glyphosate has been found in human urine!.. Wouldn’t it be ironic, though, if some federal health/food agency were to establish a Daily Value for glyphosate, since it’s apparently being used as if it were compost?.. However and unbelievably, in 2013, the U.S. EPA increased the allowable limits of glyphosate in food crops from 200 ppm to 6,000 ppm—a 30-fold increase from its original allowable limits! What does that tell you?” (emph. added)

Justice Dept orders banks to CALL THE POLICE if you attempt to withdraw too much of your own cash – from GovtSlaves.com – “Earlier this week, a senior official from the Justice Department spoke to a group of bankers about the need for them to rat out their customers to the police… What a lot of people don’t realize is that banks are already unpaid government spies… Federal regulations in the Land of the Free REQUIRE banks to file ‘suspicious activity reports’ or SARs on their customers. And it’s not optional… Banks have minimum quotas of SARs they need to fill out and submit to the federal government… If they don’t file enough SARs, they can be fined. They can lose their banking charter. And yes, bank executives and directors can even be imprisoned for noncompliance.”

After The Fed Crushed The Middle Class, It Is Targeting The American Family – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Of course this is perhaps all part and parcel of the Fed’s implicit attempt to exacerbate inequality in America by equating the “wealth” part of the term “wealth effect” with financial assets. The result of this, despite Janet Yellen’s best efforts at explaining to low income Americans that it’s a good idea to have assets, is a growing divide between the rich and the poor and this divide is not only getting wider thanks to the central bank’s efforts to inflate the value of the very types of assets that the poor are unlikely to own, but is in fact now destroying the American family.”

monsanto-Still_Poisoning-664x373Monsanto’s Deep Legacy of Corruption and Cover-Up – The History of a CHEMICAL company – by Barbara Minton, NaturalSociety.com – “From 1929 until 1995, Monsanto operated a chemical plant in the small town of Nitro, West Virginia, where it manufactured Agent Orange. In 1949, a pressure valve blew on a tank of the herbicide, sending plumes of smoke and vapors containing dioxin throughout the town, coating residents and the homes they lived in with powdery residue… In a short time, some people developed skin eruptions and were diagnosed with an enduring and disfiguring condition known as chloracne. Others had prolonged pain extending from their chest to their feet. According to a medical report following the explosion, ‘It caused a systemic intoxication in the workers involving most major organ systems.’ ”

Iraq_Army_ColumnUS-led coalition not helping Iraq in Tikrit: Analyst (w/Video) – from PressTV.ir – The political commentator says the Iraqi military operation to liberate the strategic city of Tikrit is significant as it is taking place without particular assistance from the US-led coalition purportedly fighting ISIL. He also highlighted reports that the United States has refused to provide air cover for Iraqi forces during the ongoing operations… Al-Isa also strongly criticized Riyadh for funding and arming the ISIL terrorists and the Ba’athi elements currently operating across the militancy-riddled region.”

The Global Dollar Funding Shortage Is Back With A Vengeance And “This Time It’s Different” – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “The last time the world was sliding into a US dollar shortage as rapidly as it is right now, was following the collapse of Lehman Brothers in 2008. The response by the Fed: the issuance of an unprecedented amount of FX liquidity lines in the form of swaps to foreign Central Banks. The “swapped” amount went from practically zero to a peak of $582 billion on December 10, 2008… The USD shortage back, and the Fed’s subsequent response, was the topic of one of our most read articles of mid-2009, ‘How The Federal Reserve Bailed Out The World.’.. As we discussed back then, this systemic dollar shortage was primarily the result of imbalanced FX funding at the global commercial banks, arising from first Japanese, and then European banks’ abuse of a USD-denominated asset-liability mismatch, in which the dollar being the funding currency of choice, resulted in a massive matched synthetic “Dollar short” on the books of commercial bank desks around the globe: a shortage which in the aftermath of the Lehman failure manifested itself in what was the largest global USD margin call in history. This is how the BIS described first the mechanics of the shortage…”

Consumer_Orders-1990-20157 Signs That A Stock Market Peak Is Happening Right Now – by Michael Snyder, TheEconomicCollapseBlog.com – “Throughout 2014 and for the early stages of 2015, stocks have been on quite a tear.  Even though the overall U.S. economy continues to be deeply troubled, we have seen the Dow, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq set record after record.  But no bull market lasts forever – particularly one that has no relation to economic reality whatsoever.  This false bubble of financial prosperity has been enjoyable, and even I wish that it could last much longer.  But there comes a time when we all must face reality, and the cold, hard facts are telling us that this party is about to end.  The following are 7 signs that a stock market peak is happening right now…”

Snow-Plum_Isl-MassCold comfort: Despite deep blankets of snow across much of US experts say this winter was the 19th warmest since records began – and for five states it was the warmest EVER winter(right) – by Lydia Willgress, Dailymail.co.uk – “They weren’t affected by below-average February temperatures due to a mild first half of winter, experts said… The average temperature across the US for winter was 34.3 degrees – more than two degrees higher than normal, Market Watch reported… And the total precipitation was just 6.12 inches – nearly one inch below average… The comments come after weeks of heavy snowfall and traffic chaos – dubbed the ‘Siberian Express’ – hit the country.”

The BBC’s Climate Change Coverage Is Not Just Dishonest but Illegal – by James Delingpole, Breitbart.com – “‘What he failed to tell us was that, as even the IPCC concedes, such events have not become more frequent or intense at all. There have been no more floods, droughts and hurricanes than there were before the global warming scare was invented.’.. If the programme was such palpable nonsense you might wonder why I am giving it such attention. But its palpably nonsensical quality is precisely the point… Here was a programme so lamentably biased, so completely uninterested in counterarguments, so blatantly determined to pull the wool over its viewers’ eyes with straw men, false analogies and calculated misrepresentations of the real points at issue, that it constituted a flagrant breach of the BBC’s statutory obligations to accuracy and impartiality… In short, this programme broke the law… Under the BBC Charter 2006, the BBC is legally obliged to ‘do all it can to ensure that controversial subjects are treated with due accuracy and impartiality in all relevant output.’.. Not only did the BBC fail to do this with Climate Change By Numbers but it has also failed to do this with every single documentary it has made on the subject for well over a decade.”

Traitorous But True – UN Framework Document For US Subjugation, US Military To Be Absorbed Into UN Peacekeepers, Disbanded – by Rick Well, RickWells.us – “The offending treasonous document was filed on September 1st, 1961, with the UN Secretary General during the Kennedy administration. It remains in effect today, on file, ready to be used when needed. It is State Department document number 7277, titled Freedom From War: The United States Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World. It is worth noting that their plans are often laid out decades in advance in order for the process to appear as a seamless, ordinary occurrence, thereby gaining acceptance and creating less resistance… In the introduction the document states, ‘In order to overcome the danger of nuclear war now confronting mankind, the United States has introduced at the Sixteenth General Assembly of the United Nations a Program for General and Complete Disarmament in a Peaceful World.’ ”

Ellen_Brown2The ECB’s Noose Around Greece: How Central Banks Harness Governments – by Ellen Brown, EllenBrown.com – “The noose around Greece’s neck is this: the ECB will not accept Greek bonds as collateral for the central bank liquidity all banks need, until the new Syriza government accepts the very stringent austerity program imposed by the troika (the EU Commission, ECB and IMF). That means selling off public assets (including ports, airports, electric and petroleum companies), slashing salaries and pensions, drastically increasing taxes and dismantling social services, while creating special funds to save the banking system… These are the mafia-like extortion tactics by which entire economies are yoked into paying off debts to foreign banks – debts that must be paid with the labor, assets and patrimony of people who had nothing to do with incurring them.”

COVER-UP: US Navy sailors disappear as government, doctors bury truth about Fukushima radiation – by David Gutierrez, “That same day, the aircraft carrier USS Ronald Reagan was redirected to the coast of Japan to participate in relief work for tsunami survivors. When sailors from the ship later began to fall ill, Congress asked the Defense Department for a report on the issue. The Pentagon report concluded that the sailors had not been exposed to enough radiation or contaminated water to cause health effects… Yet in the four years since the disaster, at least 500 sailors have fallen ill, and 247 of them have joined the class-action suit. The 100-page legal complaint chronicles their symptoms: an airplane mechanic suffering from unexplained muscle wasting; a woman whose baby was born ill; a sailor told his health problems must be genetic, even though his identical twin is perfectly healthy; and case after case of cancer, internal bleeding, abscesses, thyroid dysfunction and birth defects.”

Chemtrail Crimes: Human Hybridization and Aerial Vaccinations – by ZenGardner.com – “Well, this is about as dark as it gets but it needs to be said. As we’ve known all along, chemtrails are a multi-faceted program. It’s the ultimate delivery system. By poisoning our air it affects every living thing, much like chemically or biologically altering a pond in order to affect all the fish. With this massive program in place, even though they won’t even admit its obvious existence, anything can be loaded onto these air tankers at any time and sprayed onto unsuspecting humanity… While the known metallic elements of nano sized aluminum and barium and a host of other toxic ingredients are accepted generally to be used for at least for massive weather modification programs, there are other even more nefarious elements that we’ve been ingesting over the years… Hold on, this isn’t going to be pleasant and may give you a sense of dread and helplessness, but the fact that we are aware of these programs and are each way more than just the composite of our biological make up is where our true empowerment will always remain. As I’ve said many times before, their matrix is collapsing in its many levels of control and deceit, but it won’t go down without very violent and even cataclysmic death throes that will affect all of us.”

4 Ways The White House Has Gone Full Doublespeak on Fast Track and the TPP – by Maira Sutton, ActivistPost.com – “The fact that the White House has resorted to distorting the truth about its trade policies is enough to demonstrate how little the administration values honesty and transparency in policy making, and how much the public stands to lose from these agreements negotiated in secret. The more they try and espouse the potential gains from Fast Track—while the trade agreements this legislation would advance remain secret—the more reason we ought to be skeptical. If the TPP is so great and if Fast Track would in fact enable more democratic oversight, why are the contents of either of them still not public?”

Jewish leaders condemn British university debate on Israel and international law – from RT.com – “The University of Southampton has hit back at appeals to revoke its sponsorship of a conference questioning the legality of Israel’s right to exist under international law… The three-day conference, titled “International Law and the State of Israel: Legitimacy, Responsibility and Exceptionalism” is scheduled to take place April 17-19… According to the organizers, it will ‘explore the relatedness of the suffering and injustice in Palestine to the foundation and protection of a state of such nature and asks what role International Law should play in the situation.’.. ‘It is unique because it concerns the legitimacy in International Law of the Jewish state of Israel.’.. Conservative MP Mark Hoban, a prominent supporter of the state of Israel, has called on the university vice-chancellor to withdraw sponsorship, branding the conference “provocative.”.. Critics say the event may ‘well affect the attractiveness of the School of Law for future UK and international students.’ ” – Da Boss wants you should cancel da conference.

Vaccine propaganda BACKFIRE: Overhyping disease “outbreaks” lowers vaccine compliance – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – “In 2006 and 2007, the media and politicians debated mandatory HPV vaccinations for young girls. Rick Perry, governor of Texas, even tried to mandate the HPV vaccine in the state, creating a media firestorm. The more the media focused on conflict and controversy, the more no one seemed to care. Support for HPV vaccine fell drastically… Recent controversy over measles vaccination brings to mind these controversies and only makes the general population more wary than ever. The Washington Post reveals, ‘In our study, we found that politicized media coverage was associated with lower support for requiring the HPV vaccine.’ ”

How the Public Are Deceived by the ‘News’ – by Eric Zuesse, WashingtonsBlog.com – “News-sites like this one are therefore the only hope for restoring democracy, where democracy formerly had existed. And maybe we’re not yet too late to prevent a nuclear war… Each reader can check a news-site’s honesty, by googling its name and the word “Ukraine” and seeing whether the realities that I have linked to here are reflected there. If the answer is no, then I would not call it a news-site, but merely a propaganda-site — because these realities are precisely that: they are real. And they are important… That’s the best way I know of, to test the honesty of any given national-news site.”

Lehman Moment For Austrian “Bad Bank” Means Worse Coming – by Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com – “Not “contained.” Just six short months ago, the 2Y bonds of Austria’s bank bank – HETA Asset Resolution AG – were trading well above par as the world and his mom reached for yield (~6%) in all the wrong places. Today, following the “spectacular development” over the weekend that the bank will be wound down due to the discovery of an $8.5bn “hole” in its balance sheet, the 2Y HETA bonds are trading below 50c on the dollar (at a yield of 54%). This is indeed Austria’s “Lehman” moment as for the first time in the new European ‘bail-in’ era, senior debt is getting a massive haircut…  As we noted yesterday, the punchline, is that while the world was waiting for Greece to announce capital controls, or a bail-in over the past week, it was none other than one of the Europe’s most pristeen credits (one which until recently was rated AAA/Aaa) that informed creditors a bail-in is imminent: “The finance ministry noted that creditors can be forced to contribute to the costs of winding down Heta – or “bailed in” – under new European legislation that Austria adopted this year so that taxpayers do not have to shoulder the entire burden.“.. Bloomberg confirms that the ministry announced that under new EU rules means creditors can be forced to share losses… Of course, this being Austria, and the Creditanstalt, aka the bank which failed in 1931 under almost identical circumstances and set off the dominos that led to a global financial crisis which in turn bank fanned the flames of the Great Depression, also being Austrian, suddenly everyone is asking: “what just happened and what happens next? (some emphasis added) – “It appears HETA (is giving) markets a glimpse behind the curtain as the lies of the recovery come out.”

Homan Square Black Site Allegation: Cops Used Heroin to Force Confessions – by Jay Syrmopoulos, TheDailySheeple.com – “He was placed in an interview room inside of Homan Square where there was red stuff on the floor that he believes was blood. The police began asking him questions about narcotics deals. Jose couldn’t answer the questions not just because he wasn’t really involved in drugs, but because the Jose Gonzales the cops were looking for was born in the 1960s. Jose is currently 27. The police weren’t happy with Jose’s constant denials and statements that he didn’t know anything. He repeatedly requested a lawyer, but he was never allowed one. That’s when they told the handcuffed and shackled Jose that they were going to inject him with heroin to make him talk.”

Syrian_ModerateMore Alleged Moderates Join ISIS/Al-Qaeda – Bring TOW Missiles With Them – by Brandon Turbeville, ActivistPost.com – “Thus, with the recent disbanding of Harakat Hazm and the blending with al-Qaeda/ISIS forces, al-Qaeda/ISIS forces are now the beneficiaries of fresh new batches of relatively sophisticated weaponry and TOW anti-tank missiles… It is thus very likely that Harakat Hazm has only ever existed for the purposes of plausible deniability on the part of NATO and the United States as they continue to arm, direct, and facilitate cannibals and caliphs running rampant across Syria and Iraq.”

Media Blackout on US ‘Smart Grid Deployment’ – by James F. Tracy, MemoryHoleBlog.com – “In December 2007 both houses of the US Congress passed and President George W. Bush signed into law the Energy Independence and Security Act (EISA)… This 310-page piece of legislation employs the dubious science of anthropogenic CO2-based climate change science to mandate an array of policies, such as fuel efficiency standards for vehicles and “green” energy initiatives. Tucked away in the final pages of this law is the description and de facto mandate for national implementation of the Smart Grid that the Bush administration promised would result in ‘some of the largest CO2 emission cuts in our nation’s history.’.. The bill unambiguously lays out the design and intent behind the Smart Grid, including surveillance, tiered energy pricing, and energy rationing for all US households and businesses through round-the-clock monitoring of RFID-chipped “Energy Star” appliances. Congress and “other stakeholders” (presumably for-profit utilities and an array of Smart Grid technology patent holders whose lobbyists co-wrote the legislation) describe the Smart Grid’s characteristics and goals via ten provisions.”

Sedki_al-MaketIsrael Secretly Arrests Golani Druze, Accusing Him of Exposing Rebel-IDF Collaboration – by Richard Silverstein, RichardSilverstein.com – “Though Israeli security services haven’t offered any reason for his arrest, it’s likely they’re angered because a week ago he followed Syrian rebels to a meeting inside Israeli-occupied territory.  The rebels met with IDF forces who’ve previously been shown to receive logistical and intelligence support from Israel in previous reports here and in Israel and foreign media.  Al Maket filmed a video  while the meeting was underway, in which he described what he saw and offered it to Syrian TV.  It was aired to the entire nation and likely monitored by Israeli security.”
Farmers To Face Fines Or Prison Sentences For Selling Food Directly To Customers – by David Gumpert, JBBardot.com – “These consumers are clearly interpreting “safety” differently than the regulators. Some of these consumers are going further than claiming contract rights—they are pushing their towns and cities to legitimize private farmer-consumer arrangements… In Maine, residents of ten coastal towns have approved so-called “food sovereignty” ordinances that legalize unregulated food sales; towns in other states, including Massachusetts and Vermont, and as far away as Santa Cruz, CA, have passed similar ordinances… The new legal offensive isn’t going over well with regulators anywhere. Aside from the Hershberger action in Wisconsin, and a similar one in Minnesota, Maine’s Department of Agriculture filed suit against a two-cow farmer, Dan Brown, in one of the food-sovereignty towns, Blue Hill, seeking fines and, in effect, to invalidate all the Maine ordinances… In April, a state court ruled against the farmer, and in effect against the towns; sentencing is due within several weeks, and the case could well be appealed.”

Barry-n-BibiTop 10 Points from Netanyahu’s Speech to Congress Proving He’s Mad – by Stuart Hooper, 21stCenturyWire.com – “Number Three: “In 1979 Iran was hijacked by religious zealots.” – Interestingly, Netanyahu failed to mention Operation Ajax. This was a covert operation led by the American CIA and British MI6 to ‘hijack’ Iran from the rule of the democratically elected Mohammad Mossadegh, who had refused foreign companies access to Iran’s oil fields, and install the Shah; who promised to do the opposite. Calling the 1979 Iranian revolution a ‘hijacking’ is crazy; it wasn’t pretty, but it happened and the Anglo-Americans have been unable to exercise economic and political control over Iran ever since – and this is why Iran is constantly framed as an enemy to this day.”

WHIP LIST: 56 Democrats to skip Netanyahu speech to Congress – by Mike Lillis – These are the people you might consider thanking.

alan_greenspan-handsUp-txtGreenspan says shattering of European Union will begin with imminent Greek implosion – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “In a recent interview with the BBC, former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan said he did not see a scenario in which the EU or its lending institutions, including its own central bank, would risk loaning the economically struggling nation more money, especially after its new far-left leadership came to power vowing to scrap current austerity measures called for in a previous loan package… Greek finance officials are seeking to renegotiate the country’s prior bailout loan, which amounts to more than $250 billion, but Greenspan said, ‘I don’t think it will be resolved without Greece leaving the eurozone.’.. Greenspan, head of the Fed from 1987 to 2006 — the Reagan, Clinton and George W. Bush years — added, ‘I believe [Greece] will eventually leave. I don’t think it helps them or the rest of the eurozone – it is just a matter of time before everyone recognizes that parting is the best strategy.’.. ‘The problem is that there is no way that I can conceive of the euro of continuing, unless and until all of the members of eurozone become politically integrated – actually even just fiscally integrated won’t do it,’ he added.”

Measles hysteria leads daycare directors to order parents to subject children to invasive blood draws – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – “In fact, all this fear has caused a daycare center at the Santa Monica High School to shut down because a baby contracted a benign case of measles. The child is currently making progress and overcoming the disease like normal, but since then, 14 babies have been placed under quarantine for 21 days… Most shocking is that the directors of the daycare are requiring blood tests from all toddlers before the center reopens… All this fear is a win-win for the medical system, which is forcing people to be dependent on its products and services. The call for forced vaccinations is not enough. Now everyone must prove they aren’t sick by submitting to forced blood draws! What could be the next mandate in a culture that forces everyone to pay for medical system health insurance?”

security-scan-of-hand-thumbAmericans to Receive Full Biometric Treatment for all Forms of European Travel – by Amanda Warren, ActivistPost.com – “…EU Observer reports: US citizens and other non-EU nationals who enter Europe will be asked to have their faces image-captured and fingerprints scanned upon arrival at a half-dozen major airports… This “biometric dragnet” is the pilot test for the EU’s new “smart borders” packages. The test portion will run March – September 2015, for starters. The commission originally proposed this package in 2013 but pulled it and began revising. While there is some opposition, the experiment is shortly underway… The captures include fingerprint scans, iris scans and facial recognition scans for all forms of European travel – road, train, sea and air… Of course, what’s usual for such programs – travelers can refuse…for now… There is, of course, the assurance that all data will be depersonalised, kept local and destroyed afterward with only a limited retention period. (right) The only data “risk” in their consideration being that certain member states won’t comply with data protection guidelines.” (emph. added) darn, your data got out, sorry…

Texas Town Fires Entire Police Department, Crime Drops By 61% – Replaced all cops with private security – by Steve Watson, PrisonPlanet.com – “According to the report, Sharpstown is saving $200,000 per year over their previous contract with the constable, and they now have more patrol officers for less money… Of course, a further incentive for employing private police is that there are less bureaucratic black holes to hide within, and there is more accountability. A claim against an officer means a claim against them personally and against the entire company, rather than against faceless government pen pushers… In addition, companies like SEAL operate as businesses, and as such are profit driven to provide the most efficient service. It is highly inefficient to police with brute force and to incur endless lawsuits. Taxpayer dollars would simply not be available to fund them… Thirdly, private security companies are less likely to be handed, and also less willing to receive, hordes of unwanted and outdated military equipment, as so many police departments around the country have in recent times.”

Village_of_al-ArakibIsrael destroys thousands of acres of crops in Palestine – from PressTV.ir – “Thousands of acres of wheat and other cereal crops have been destroyed by Israeli police in the Palestinian Bedouin village of Rakhama in Negev… …as many as 14 Israeli tractors escorted by in excess of 50 Israeli police vehicles destroyed the agricultural products and leveled the land early on Tuesday, Ma’an news agency reported… ‘This is vandalism through which they plan to displace the Bedouins from the Negev so as to create a Jewish state free of Arabs,’ (local resident Ali) Freijat added… He further noted that the Israeli regime forces have been trying to confiscate the land for many years… ‘However, my message to them is that if you turn over the land a million times, and if you demolish our homes a thousand times we will continue to live on this land and won’t allow anybody to take it from us,’ he added… Reports also said on Sunday that the Israeli regime plans to carry out more demolitions in an area populated by Palestinian Bedouins near al-Quds (Jerusalem)… Tel Aviv authorities say they want to build settlements and military structures in the area.”

Six years of flat interest rates has cost savers £130BILLION – Figure equates to £5,000 for every home in the UK – by Hugo Duncan, Dailymail.co.uk – “Laith Khalaf, a senior analyst at savings and investment firm Hargreaves Lansdown, which produced the report, said: ‘It’s been a gruelling six years for savers in the UK who have seen the income from their cash obliterated. The future doesn’t look too much rosier either… ‘While interest rate rises may be on the cards next year, when they come they are likely to be small and slow.’.. Interest rates were 5 per cent in September 2008 – the month US investment banking giant Lehman Brothers collapsed… But they were cut aggressively as the global financial crisis deepened, before reaching an all-time low of 0.5 per cent on March 5, 2009.”

Shock Report: White House Immigration Details Leaked: Obama Policies Will Create A “Country Within A Country” – by Mac Slavo, SHTFPlan.com – “In reality what he did was sign a memorandum that created the Task Force on New Americans which is going to  implement his amnesty mill for the 5 million illegals, which I believe is going to be more than that… and on these conference calls it became clear he was looking at 13 to 15 million to give protection and move them on to citizenship… To do that, what they said was that we need to start looking at the immigrant as a seedling and for the seedling to grow the seedling needs to be in fertile soil…” – And, to fund this mess?: “White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest confirmed Monday that President Obama is “very interested” in the idea of raising taxes through unitlateral executive action… ‘The president certainly has not indicated any reticence in using his executive authority to try and advance an agenda that benefits middle class Americans,’ Earnest said in response to a question about Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) calling on Obama to raise more than $100 billion in taxes through IRS executive action… ‘Now I don’t want to leave you with the impression that there is some imminent announcement, there is not, at least that I know of,’ Earnest continued. ‘But the president has asked his team to examine the array of executive authorities that are available to him to try to make progress on his goals. So I am not in a position to talk in any detail at this point, but the president is very interested in this avenue generally,’ Earnest finished.” (emph. added)

Reaper-Death_from_AbroadIs Drone Warfare Fraying at the Edges? – by Pratap Chatterjee, TomDispatch.com – “One thing is clear: the pilots are not just killing “bad guys” and they know it because, as Black points out, they see everything that happens before, during, and after a drone strike… Indeed, the only detailed transcript of an actual Air Force drone surveillance mission and targeted killing to be publicly released illustrates this all too well. The logs recorded idle chatter on February 21, 2010, between drone operators at Creech Air Force base in Nevada coordinating with video analysts at Air Force special operations headquarters in Okaloosa, Florida, and with Air Force pilots in a rural part of Daikondi province in central Afghanistan. On that day, three vehicles were seen traveling in a pre-dawn convoy carrying about a dozen people each. Laboring under the mistaken belief that the group were “insurgents” out to kill some nearby U.S. soldiers on a mission, the drone team decided to attack.”

No Big BangNo Big Bang? Quantum equation predicts universe has no beginning – by Lisa Zyga, Phys.org – “The physicists emphasize that their quantum correction terms are not applied ad hoc in an attempt to specifically eliminate the Big Bang singularity. Their work is based on ideas by the theoretical physicist David Bohm, who is also known for his contributions to the philosophy of physics. Starting in the 1950s, Bohm explored replacing classical geodesics (the shortest path between two points on a curved surface) with quantum trajectories… In their paper, Ali and Das applied these Bohmian trajectories to an equation developed in the 1950s by physicist Amal Kumar Raychaudhuri… In addition to not predicting a Big Bang singularity, the new model does not predict a “big crunch” singularity, either. In general relativity, one possible fate of the universe is that it starts to shrink until it collapses in on itself in a big crunch and becomes an infinitely dense point once again.”

Over 500 Pakistani parents arrested for children’s failure to get polio vaccine – by Sophia Saifi and Greg Botelho, edition.CNN.com – “Those arrested will be released on bail if they sign an affidavit stating that they will let their children get vaccinated, according to the deputy commissioner… Pakistan’s vaccination rate is inordinately low for a number of reasons, including attacks on medical workers, the displacement of people due to ongoing military operations and a lack of trust by some families… In 2014, Pakistan had 327 cases. The next closest country was Nigeria, with 36 cases… Dr. Bilal Ahmad, a UNICEF team leader based in Pakistan, called authorities’ unprecedented move a last-ditch effort to clear polio from “cluster” zones where large numbers of families have refused to get their children vaccinated… ‘First the workers (try to) convince them, then their supervisors, then senior members of the community,’ Ahmad said. ‘(This government action) is the final step in eradicating this issue.’.. Polio is a highly infectious viral disease that primarily affects young children, sometimes leading to paralysis and death. The virus is easily preventable through immunization, but there’s no cure once it is contracted. (Note: this is not true – A paper was given to the AMA in the 1960’s documenting the cure of 100% of patients within 72 hours with IV vitamin C drip therapy – the AMA refused to allow the paper to be presented)… It went from being a health issue to a security issue after U.S. intelligence officials used a vaccination program to help in their hunt for Osama bin Laden in 2011. Under cover of the program, the CIA sought to collect DNA samples from relatives of the al Qaeda leader to verify his presence in a compound in Abbottabad, Pakistan…

The Speech that made Vladimir Putin an Enemy of the Empire

dees forced vaccinesPro-Vaccine Propaganda Setting Stage For Ugly End-Game Scenario – by Bernie Suarez, ActivistPost.com – “With every day we are seeing the big government challenge basic human values, ethics, common sense, logic and reason. Because of their desperate overreach, this overall scenario may contain a silver lining in terms of human awakening. However, looking at the recent pro-vaccine hysteria, the more frightening reality staring us in the face may be this – the vaccine propaganda is spinning off in its own bizarre direction and is now quietly cementing itself as one of the most powerful tools to be potentially used to implement tyranny and depopulation consistent with the globalist plans for a new world order outlined in the Georgia Guidestones.”

Megyn_Kelley-1Fox News host calls for ‘Big Brother’ to enforce vaccination schedules – by J. D. Heyes, NaturalNews.com – “From HuffPo: Megyn Kelly and Bill O’Reilly agree: Parents should vaccinate their children….During a discussion on “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday night, Kelly and O’Reilly tackled the controversial issue, focusing in on politicians, like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), who have recently suggested that parents should have “some measure of choice” when it comes to vaccinating their children… The conversation turned personal, however, when O’Reilly bluntly asked Kelly if she opposed mandatory vaccinations for children… ‘No,’ Kelly responded. ‘And I want to say, on the record, I have three children under the age of six. I’ve vaccinated all of them, on time, as the doctor prescribed.’ ”

Vaccine propaganda BACKFIRE: Overhyping disease “outbreaks” lowers vaccine compliance – by L.J. Devon, NaturalNews.com – “As the national media politicized a measles outbreak in California and called for mandatory vaccinations, the general population grew even more wary of vaccines and medical professionals. As the measles outbreak was politicized, with lawmakers chiming in, the general population turned away from the controversy. The overhyped measles outbreak and all the vaccine propaganda that followed actually lowered vaccine compliance throughout the US. This is according to a study published in the Annals of the American Academy of Political and Social Science… This turning-away effect was also witnessed in 2009, when the mainstream media ran a media blitz pushing women to undergo mammography screenings. The more breast cancer fears were pushed and the more the media tried to sell mammography, the more the public backed away.”

Fuck-Off-GoogleSurveillance Valley: Why Google Is Eager to Align Itself With America’s Military Industrial Complex – Is it wise for us to hand over the contents of our private lives to private companies? – by Yasha Levine, Alternet.org – “Residents’ anger at the fusion surveillance center was intensified by a set of internal documents showing that city officials were more interested in using the surveillance center monitor political protests rather than fighting crime: keeping tabs on activists, monitoring non-violent political protests and tracking union organizing that might shut down the Port of Oakland. It was an incendiary find — especially in Oakland, a city with a large marginalized black population, a strong union presence and a long, ugly history of police brutality aimed at minority groups and political activists.”

FBI’s ‘Smoking Gun’ Video of Boston Marathon Bombing Doesn’t Exist – by Lara Turner, WhoWhatWhy.org – “What do former Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick, an appeals court justice, several potential members of the Boston Marathon bombing jury and thousands of regular Americans have in common?.. They all believe that they’ve seen a video of accused bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev dropping a deadly backpack behind victims at the marathon on April 15, 2013—a video his defense said “does NOT actually exist.”.. In a pre-trial hearing yesterday, Tsarnaev defense attorney David Bruck argued that the April 18, 2013, press conference in which former Boston FBI Special Agent in Charge Richard DesLauriers identified the brothers should be excluded from evidence. That, he argued, is because the FBI agent described the video footage that doesn’t really exist, which subsequently was used to convict Tsarnaev in the media.”

The rally was not specific to one political party, but all in attendance who turned out to support the cause were centrists and leftists, with most right wing parties in Israel being extremely nationalistic and pro-war… The rally’s keynote speaker was what could have been considered a member of the right at one time. Former Mossad chief Meir Dagan recently pulled Netanyahu’s card and said he is ‘the person who has caused the greatest strategic damage to Israel.’.. His speech in Israel tonight called out the Prime Minister for repeatedly lying and frightening people into voting for him time and time again.”

Supreme Court Rules that Cops DO NOT Need a Warrant to Search Your Home – by Matt Agorist, TheFreeThoughtProject.com – “The majority, led by Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr., said police need not take the time to get a magistrate’s approval before entering a home in such cases. But dissenters, led by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, warned that the decision would erode protections against warrantless home searches. The court had previously held that such protections were at the “very core” of the 4th Amendment and its ban on unreasonable searches and seizures, reports the LA Times… According to the AP, Justice Samuel Alito wrote the court’s 6-3 decision holding that an occupant may not object to a search when he is not at home… ‘We therefore hold that an occupant who is absent due to a lawful detention or arrest stands in the same shoes as an occupant who is absent for any other reason,’ Alito said… In other words, you have no property rights slave, and we can snoop through your personal belongings if we wish.” (emph. added)

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

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.

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.
