Zero Point and Dimensions –The Founders

Messages from the Founders
Earth Changes and 2012
Received by Sal Rachele
Second Message
October 2007

Our previous message was a brief summary of what is taking place on Earth and within the solar system. Today we would like to discuss how and why the electromagnetic null zone, or Galactic Shift, is a catalyst for ascension and massive changes, within the Earth herself and within human beings and other life forms.

As stated previously, at some point this channel will incorporate artwork, diagrams and tables to help portray the ideas being generated here. We understand most of you rely on a more visual approach, and as we have stated numerous times, your language is very limited and does not have adequate words and phrases to describe many of these ideas. For now, we will attempt to transmit the understandings regarding the density and dimensional changes that will take place during the Galactic Shift.

How to Access the Various Dimensions of the Universe

To help you understand the shift you are going through, we are going to discuss how the various densities and dimensions of the universe are constructed. We promise to use easy to understand terminology as we venture forth into this arena. We will not detail the individual levels, as that is contained within other books, including our first e-book and the channel’s hardcopy book, “Life On the Cutting Edge.” Rather, this discussion will focus on how to go between the different densities and dimensions.

As we stated in one of our previous messages, there are doorways between the dimensions of our Creator’s universe, called by various Earth names, including stargates, portals, vortexes, mini-wormholes, etc. Not all of these terms are accurate. For example, a vortex is merely a concentrated area of EM energy, usually where two or more ley lines come together, and it is only when EM energy is configured in a certain way that you have a device or area capable of providing a dimensional shift.

You have a term, used by some of your advanced mathematicians and physical scientists, called “zero point.” This refers to the exact balance point between the polarities of an EM field, or rather, the point at which the polarity collapses or becomes essentially non-existent.

At the point of zero polarity, a portal, stargate or mini-wormhole is formed linking your third dimension to other dimensions, although this is a greatly oversimplified explanation.

Another way of stating this is that your third dimensional universe is constructed of polarized EM fields that overlap one another in a way that creates continuity within 3D time/space. Of course, you have your gravitational and nuclear forces as well, but these have more to do with the affinity of objects and levels of consciousness existing within your 3D time/space, and less to do with the way your 3D time/space interfaces with other dimensions of our Creator’s universe.

This channel, in his book on the nature of the universe (Life On the Cutting Edge), differentiated between densities and dimensions, and in keeping with the consistency of his definitions, we will do the same. When we are talking about planes, subplanes and realms of existence within the universe, we will refer to the major characteristics of these planes as dimensions. When we are discussing the vibratory state of specific beings, objects or energy fields existing within a given dimension or dimensions, we will use the term density. For example, you can be a fourth density being, meaning that your dominant level of vibration is that of fourth density, but you can experience the third dimension while in that state.

To digress briefly in order to make this point more clear, beings vibrating at various densities can “visit” or experience dimensions that do not correspond directly to their level of vibration. While third dimensional beings typically have third density bodies, you who are reading this are mostly vibrating at fourth density, yet you are still interacting in the third dimension. This distinction between densities and dimensions will come in handy in our future discussions.

Resuming our discussion of portals and stargates, you will find that our Creator’s universe is designed using several energy configurations, which we will call sacred geometries. Our definition of sacred geometry will be precisely this: The energy configurations of our Creator’s universe.

You will note that the primary configurations evident, at least to you in 3D space/time, are the circle, spiral, and various derivatives of the triangle. The square, which you see often in your manufactured lifestyle, acts as a base or foundation for triangular forms, such as the base of a pyramid. The square is the most dense and stable of the forms and represents a state of stagnation when souls are at rest in the energy of the square. The circle, on the other hand, represents the point of greatest fluidity, since it is the shape of all structures as they approach a singularity. The singularity is the actual doorway or portal between dimensions. At the exact point of the singularity, you are in the void, or the unmanifested Creation.

You can think of this as the “point within the Mind of God” that some of your teachers refer to. This entire universe began as a point within the Mind of God and then expanded and extended itself (in the manner your scientists refer to as the “Big Bang”) until all that you see and experience was brought into manifestation.

The geometric configurations that exist between the square and the circle, or between the base dimension and the singularity, are both beautiful and complex. If the forms are divergent, meaning they are emanating from a point and growing in size and scope, then a dimensional realm is forming or becoming more evident. If the forms are converging, meaning they are diminishing in size and scope, they are moving toward the singularity and are thus approaching the point of dimensional shift in preparation for ascending or descending along the dimensional continuum. One of the simplest examples of this involves the tetrahedron, or pyramidal structure whereby two pyramids are stacked base to base to form an object similar to a four-sided cut and polished diamond. At the base of each pyramid is the square, the most stable part of the object. When a soul is experiencing the energies of the square, he or she is completely solidified within the dimension that is formed by the tetrahedron. (Note: You can also have a triangular pyramid – a pyramid with a triangular base, but such an object is actually less stable than the four-sided pyramid in most cases.)

At the apex, or capstone, of each of the pyramids forming the tetrahedron, you have the singularity, or portal, or stargate, that allows the soul to move from one dimension to another. In the example of the tetrahedron, you can have one pyramid pointing “up” (arbitrarily), and one pointing “down” (again arbitrarily). The up-facing pyramid has a capstone that represents the portal or stargate that is accessed in order to move into a higher dimension. The down-facing pyramid has a capstone that represents the portal or stargate that is accessed in order to move into a lower dimension.

If you can visualize tetrahedrons stacked end-to-end across the universe, you have the most basic concept of how the dimensions of the universe are constructed and how they are accessed. Some of your scientists have correctly postulated that black holes are doorways between the dimensions, and many have envisioned the idea of traveling into the center of galaxies and through the black holes in the hope of entering another universe or realm.

We need to differentiate between the black holes at the galactic core of most galaxies, and the mini-black holes and mini-wormholes that exist everywhere throughout 3D time/space. The massive black holes that exist at the center of various heavenly bodies, such as galaxies, quasar clusters and interstellar gases, are links between this local universe and other universes, or what have been called “parallel universes.” The mini-black holes and mini-wormholes that exist in great numbers within so-called ordinary time and space, are the portals and stargates that allow you to travel between the dimensions of this local universe. While there are similarities between the mini-black holes and the massive black holes, the levels they access are very different.

In addition to the triangular-based geometric energy configurations, you have various derivatives, including octahedrons, isocahedrons, dodecahedrons, duododecahedrons, etc. We will not take time right now to elaborate on these forms as you can find examples of them on your Internet.

The spiral is a very unique form in the design of the cosmos. You will find that the concept of time, as well as the idea of evolution, and the construction of all life forms, are based on the spiral. Although it is not entirely accurate, you can think of the triangles, pyramids, tetrahedrons, isocahedrons, dodecahedrons, squares, circles and singularities, as part of the inanimate universe, or the basic building blocks of the universe, while you can think of the spiral and its associated fractals and patterns as the animate building blocks of life itself existing within the inanimate framework of the universe.

Another way of thinking of this is to introduce the concept of momentum, or angular velocity. All animate forms within the universe have, to some degree, a momentum, or movement of consciousness and form, within the relatively static structure of the base universe. Spirals are formed when inanimate objects are rotated or moved through an EM field. Although gravitational and nuclear forces are technically in the form of spirals (when examined in great depth and with proper instrumentation), the most obvious energy field acting upon inanimate objects is the EM field.

Since the Godhead consists of both eternal changeless consciousness and ever-moving consciousness, the movement of consciousness, as it traverses the static, changeless, base form of consciousness, creates spiral, or fractal patterns of energy within the stratum (changeless aspect of God). Your scientists call the base, or stratum, the “Bose-Einstein condensate.”

As temperatures approach what you call absolute zero, you discover this static state of the universe. At absolute zero, all motion ceases and you have the pure, changeless consciousness of the primordial God essence. You will find that this changeless state also appears at the exact point of the singularities, existing in infinite number throughout the Creator’s universe. Concurrently, you will find that the zero point of absolute neutrality between the polarities of an EM field are also the points of static changeless consciousness within the Mind of God.

We have so far discussed at least three ways of accessing the eternal, changeless aspect of the Creator:

(1) through the removal of all thermodynamic elements from a region of space, thereby creating absolute zero temperature, meaning no movement of particles or consciousness, a state called the “Bose-Einstein condensate” by some physicists;

(2) through moving along the converging sides of a pyramidal-type structure into the singularity at the apex or capstone of the structure, which essentially means entering the mini-black holes and mini-wormholes that exist throughout 3D time/space; and

(3) by entering into the point of exact neutrality between the polarities of an EM field, the region called “zero point” by some of your scientists.

It is important for us to remind you, dear Creators, that no matter how you access this eternal, unchanging aspect of God, you are essentially at the same point beyond all time and space when you enter into this state of being. Whether or not you enter a mini-black hole in a galaxy billions of light years from the Milky Way, or you enter in through the zero point of an EM field in your own Earthly laboratory, or you construct a pyramid in your living room and learn how to activate the capstone in such a way that you pass through the singularity and into the next dimension, at the point of singularity you are in the same exact point as you are in that distant galaxy. Every point within the Mind of God is the same point, because the concept of time and space does not exist in the changeless eternal state.

Your rational mind will have a hard time grasping this concept, but you can visualize it to some extent. When you apply this idea to consciousness instead of a static geometrical state of 3D time/space, it makes perfect sense.

All systems of meditation, all paths to enlightenment, involve the same idea. By quieting the mind you enter into the still, timeless realms of pure spirit. When there is no movement of consciousness, you position yourself automatically within the singularity and therefore, within the point of eternal, unchanging God consciousness.

How the Electromagnetic Null Zone will Affect Consciousness

By now, if you have been grasping the ideas put forth in this dissertation, you have probably already reached the logical conclusion to which we are pointing. When an EM field decreases in polarity, it moves those who are involved in this EM field toward the zero point, or point of no polarity. As souls move into the EM null zone created by the emanations of the Central Sun of the galaxy, they pass through this “photon belt” of scalar (non-polarized) EM energy. Therefore, they experience moving through a stargate, or portal, into another dimensional continuum. Since the Divine Dispensation of the Galactic Shift being implemented on Earth (and other relevant planets in this region of space) is designed to “graduate” souls into the next stage of evolution, you will find that the stargates and portals opened up by the EM null zone are “upward spiraling” or “upward converging,” meaning that they lead to the next octave of God’s Creation, which in this case is the higher mental and astral plane of the fourth dimension (for Earth and most of her surviving souls), and the etheric plane of the fifth dimension (for those souls ascending into crystal light bodies).

The Consciousness of the Shift

Many of you that are now vibrating at fourth density passed through the portal from third density as a result of the practice of meditation. When you quiet your mind sufficiently, the movement of consciousness stops and you enter the portal. You might have a partial entering at first, but as you apply yourself more consistently, you find your entire being shifting into fourth density. The actual passage through the portal involves a quantum jump, but in this world, it appears to happen gradually. In other words, some of your cells appear to mutate into the fourth density vibration before others, although this is really an illusion. There is a critical mass that occurs on the cellular level. When enough cells are aligned (or attuned) to fourth density, the quantum jump occurs and your entire body begins vibrating at fourth density.

This experience in consciousness is usually in the form of an “a-ha” or satori that starts you solidly on the spiritual path. For a few brief moments, you have contact with the higher planes and an instantaneous understanding of the Oneness of all life. From that moment on, you become conscious creators living in a fourth density vibration (even though some parts of you still appear to vibrate at third density).

Remember, dear Creators, the words being used here are approximations. Please do not get hung up on the idea that you must vibrate at this or that level. These delineations are given so that the intellectual mind has something to grasp onto during the shift. The reality beyond the words is what is important.

Those of you that have been vibrating at fourth density for some time now are consciously preparing to ascend into fifth density. In order to do this consciously, you must collapse the dualities within your own mind. This means seeing only contrasts rather than judgments when you look at the qualities commonly called light and dark, good and evil, or positive and negative. A fifth density consciousness is one that sees the Divine in everything without judgment. The fastest way to prepare your consciousness for fifth density is to let go of ALL judgment, all comparison, and all attachment to duality (also called “maya” or illusion).

The Split within Humanity

As you know by now, not all souls on Earth will pass through the portal into the fifth dimension. In fact, the vast majority of humanity will either disincarnate as Earth approaches the portal, or will move into the fourth density state. They will not be vibrating at a high enough rate to move completely into fifth density. The Earth herself will move through the portal in such as way as to become a fourth density planet existing in the fourth dimensional state of the universe. To adequately explain the interaction of third, fourth and fifth dimensions upon one another, and to adequately describe the third, fourth and fifth density vibrations of souls involved in the Galactic Shift, would require detailed complex diagrams and rigorous mathematics. To the relief of most readers, we will not be translating this treatise into such a methodology at this time.

This channel and his primary guide, Leah, have already discussed the metaphysical and spiritual implications of the Galactic Shift in the numerous channeled messages he has given, both in lecture format and on his website, as well as in the Leah e-book. In the spirit of refraining from reinventing the wheel, we will only touch upon these matters such as they relate to the science that we are describing. While some of you do not need a scientific explanation of the Galactic Shift, it is helpful for many of you and provides some detailed “how-to” regarding your abilities to move smoothly through the transition from third density to fourth and fifth.

Another View of the Shift

For those of who you are clairvoyant, or at the very least highly visual, let us sum up our discussion so far using overly-simplified depictions. You have a spiral galaxy, your Milky Way, spinning like a pinwheel, and the solar system, your sun, outer giant gaseous planets, and all the rest, including rogue planetoids and asteroids, all rotating, revolving and spinning along with the rest of the stars and planets in this outer spiral arm of the galaxy. As these heavenly bodies spin along with the rest of the spiral arm, they encounter a beam of high intensity scalar EM radiation emanating from the Central Sun of the galaxy. It is as if someone shone a spotlight out from the center into space and your solar system moves through the beam of the spotlight, however briefly (only about 150 years in Earth time and only about 20 years in the most intense part of the beam).

As Earth passes through the beam, all life forms upon her, as well as the planet herself, are transformed, translated and transmuted into the next dimension.

Those that are unable to withstand the frequency change will leave their bodies and incarnate elsewhere in the galaxy, preferably in a sector that is not about to go through a similar change. Those that are able to withstand the frequency change, but are not able to go completely through the stargate into the fifth dimension, will find themselves in the fourth dimension, which is the dimension of thought and time. To a fourth density being living in a fourth dimensional time/space continuum, life seems quite similar to third density except that such souls are aware that they are conscious creators and that consciousness creates their experience of reality.

They learn to create from the center of their being outward, and the world they see is an enlightened paradise that reflects their higher state of consciousness. This is the “golden age” spoken of by many of your prophets.

Those that are able to move completely into the fifth dimension will experience the fifth dimensional version of Earth. Like yourselves, Earth is a multidimensional being of light manifesting as a planet rather than a humanoid or star. Her dominant frequency will move from third to fourth density, and so those of you who go through ascension will essentially be fifth density beings living on a fourth density world, or shall we say fifth density beings living in the fourth dimension.

Again, we apologize for the limited scope of your language, as this is not the most ideal way to describe this. As fifth density beings living in the fourth dimension of time/space, you will have certain advantages over the fourth density beings living in the fourth dimension. While they will still grow old and die, reincarnating over and over as fourth density beings until they ascend off the wheel of reincarnation, you will be in your immortal crystalline light bodies. For a while, you will still be visible to fourth density humans, but eventually you will increase your frequency sufficiently to become invisible even to fourth density. Only the clairvoyant and telepathic members of the “golden age” will be able to interact with you at that point.

As fifth density teachers and wayshowers, you will guide and instruct the leaders of the fourth density world in the ways of spirit, love and compassion. You will also interface with the enlightened ETs that will come and go openly from the Earth plane. Many of the ETs currently assisting Earth are already vibrating at fourth and fifth density and it will become very easy for them to interact with humans on Earth after the shift. In one of our following messages, we will go into greater depth on the role and function of the ETs, angels and ascended masters and how they will assist as Earth goes through the Galactic Shift.

In our next message, we will detail some of the specific changes you will see on your planet, as well as the ongoing changes to your sun and the outer gaseous planets of your solar system.

We are grateful for this time with you and we are glad that so many of you are able to follow the train of thought we have prepared. We are the Founders, ever in the Light of God.

Trump renews attacks on ‘fake, fake disgusting news’

YouTube: Trump Calls Media ‘Fake, Fake Disgusting News’
WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — President Donald Trump is renewing his campaign against the media, claiming at a Pennsylvania rally that the media is the “fake, fake disgusting news” and casting journalists as his true political opponent.Trump barnstormed Thursday night in a state that he swiped from the Democrats in 2016 and that is home to a Senate seat he is trying to place in the Republicans’ column this fall. But the race between GOP U.S. Rep. Lou Barletta and two-term incumbent Democratic Sen. Bob Casey took a back seat to Trump’s invectives against the media, which came amid a backdrop of antagonism to journalists from the White House and hostility from the thousands packed into a loud, overheated Wilkes-Barre arena.

“Whatever happened to the free press? Whatever happened to honest reporting?” Trump asked, pointing to the media in the back of the hall. “They don’t report it. They only make up stories.”

Time and time again, Trump denounced the press for underselling his accomplishments and doubting his political rise.

He tore into the media for diminishing what he accomplished at his Singapore summit with North Korea leader Kim Jong Un. He tore into the tough questioning he received in Helsinki when he met with Russia’s Vladimir Putin last month. And he began the speech with a 10-minute remembrance of his 2016 election night victory, bemoaning that Pennsylvania wasn’t the state to clinch the White House for him only because “the fake news refused to call it.”

“They were suffering that night, they were suffering,” Trump said of the election night pundits. He then promised that the Keystone State would deliver his margin of victory “next time.”

“Only negative stories from the fakers back there,” the president declared.

With each denunciation, the crowd jeered and screamed at the press in the holding pen at the back of the arena.

The inflammatory performance came just hours after White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders refused to distance herself from Trump’s previous assertions that the media is the “enemy” of the American people. Pressed during a White House briefing on the issue, Sanders said Trump “has made his position known.”

In a heated exchange with reporters, she recited a litany of complaints against the press and blamed the media for inflaming tensions in the country.

“As far as I know, I’m the first press secretary in the history of the United States that’s required Secret Service protection,” she said, accusing the media of continuing “to ratchet up the verbal assault against the president and everyone in this administration.”

Though Barletta’s bid was an undercard to the Trump’s main event, savaging his opponents, the president did bless the congressman’s bid. Trump, who has accelerated his campaign schedule in recent weeks to help the Republicans he favors both in primaries and November’s midterms, was the first Republican to win Pennsylvania since 1988.

“For years and years, they said Republicans should win the state of Pennsylvania,” Trump said. “It always got away. But we won the state of Pennsylvania.”

He and Barletta, who is trailing by double digits in the polls, share hard-line immigration views, and Trump lashed Casey with his own derogatory nickname: “Sleeping Bob.”

But Trump’s focus was defending his own accomplishments and beliefs. He pushed for tougher borders, overstating the threat posed by violent gangs like MS-13 and making the murderous group a stand-in for all immigrants in the United States illegally.

He defended his kid-glove approach to both Kim and Putin, saying, “it would be a good thing, not a bad thing” to have warmer relations with the hostile powers and dismissing the talk that meeting with the autocrats elevated them on the world stage.

He bashed the Democratic leadership of Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and, curiously, suggested that his frequent foe Rep. Maxine Waters of California was “a new star” of the party.

He raved about the booming economy and said, without evidence, that his blue-collar supporters in states like Pennsylvania were the biggest beneficiaries.

And he looked ahead to his 2020 re-election campaign, touting his new slogan, “Keep America Great Again” while musing whether he wanted Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren, whom he decried as “Pocahontas,” or Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, whom he flatly deemed “crazy,” as his opponent.

The rally came at a perilous time for Trump, who the day before bluntly declared his attorney general should terminate “right now” the federal probe into the campaign that took him to the White House, a newly fervent attack on the special counsel investigation that could imperil his presidency.

Sanders scrambled to explain that Trump’s tweet was “not an order” and the president was not directing his attorney general to do anything.

“It’s the president’s opinion,” she said.

But Trump’s tweetstorm again raised the specter that he could try to more directly bring special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-Trump election-collusion probe to a premature end. And it revived the idea that the president’s tweets themselves might be used as evidence that he is attempting to obstruct justice.

Negotiations have also started again about a possible presidential interview as Mueller’s team has offered the White House format changes, perhaps willing to limit some questions asked of Trump or accept some answers in writing, according to a person briefed on the proposal who wasn’t authorized to discuss private talks and spoke on condition of anonymity.




A Brief Further Discussion of the Scientific Method

If you are able to carefully document the changes taking place within the physics of your solar system, and within the biology of your human form, you will notice that radical change is already taking place.

Your DNA is not only changing, but the entire structure of your physical form. Eventually, you will become silicon-based beings instead of carbon-based. Your physical bodies will become immortal and impervious to environmental influences. It will appear to your empirically based scientific observations that radiation reaching Earth from distant quasars is mutating the genetic structure of humankind.

You will observe your own sun behaving erratically and producing unusual bursts of EM waves. The background frequency of the Earth will continue to shift. As your magnetic poles fluctuate, your weather patterns and climate will become more and more erratic.

Most of your scientists look for cycles in data in order to explain what is happening. While the cycles we have described are valid and there are many smaller cycles also affecting the changes, the so-called experts will be at a loss to explain a lot of the phenomena being observed.
A great deal of your researchers depend on funding received from sources that would just as soon not have you become aware of the changes. They will feel threatened if too many people discover that the whole solar system is undergoing radical change. Therefore, they have censored and suppressed many important facts that back up and validate the material in this book. This is especially apparent in the anthropological data that is considered acceptable and that finds its way into your textbooks. Below, we have detailed a few of the facts your history books did not tell you in school.

Massive Explosion Over Air Force Base In Greenland With Major Force

A Tweet from the Director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists, Hans Kristensen, on August 1, 2018 at 5:14 PM Washington D.C. time claimed that a, “Meteor explodes with 2.1 kilotons force 43 km above missile early warning radar at Thule Air Base (Ed. Greenland).”

A meteor exploded with 2.1 kilotons of force above a U.S. Air Force base in July, but the military has made no mention of the event, according to reports.

The impact energy of the event in kilotons of TNT (kt) computed from an empirical expression relating radiated and impact energy.



The biggest threat to our democracy that nobody is talking about is the real possibility of a rogue Constitutional convention – empowering extremists to radically reshape the Constitution, our laws, and our country.

If just a few more states sign on to what’s called an “Article V convention” for a balanced budget amendment, there’s no limit to the damage they might do.


Let me explain.

There are 2 ways to amend the United States Constitution: One way – the way we’ve passed every amendment since the Bill of Rights – is for two-thirds of the House and two-thirds of the Senate to vote for a proposed amendment, and then have it ratified by at least three quarters of the states – now 38 in number.

But there’s a second way to amend the Constitution. Two thirds of the states may demand that Congress form a constitutional convention to propose amendments.

Once such a constitutional convention is convened, there are no rules to limit or constrain what comes next.

Amendments proposed by an Article V convention are supposed to be ratified by 38 states. But convention delegates could hijack the process and change the ratification process itself, tossing out the 38 state requirement.
A balanced budget amendment would be crazy enough. But nothing would be safe. A woman’s right to choose. Marriage equality. First Amendment protections for free speech and a free press. Equal protection of the laws. Checks and balances.

An Article V convention would allow delegates to write their own agenda into our Constitution.

Already 28 states have called for a constitutional convention. They only need 6 more to succeed.

Unlimited money in politics and partisan gerrymandering have already given Republicans control of a majority of state legislatures. Big money interests like the Koch Brothers and ALEC are investing heavily in the push for a constitutional convention – which means that they’d be calling the shots if one takes place.

You’re probably already overwhelmed with political actions you need to take. But, believe me, this is important. With just a few states to go, your voice is needed. Please tell your state lawmakers to reject calls for an Article V convention.

The election of President Donald Trump is a clear and present danger to the emotional stability of those living in subjective reality because they cannot tolerate the threat of objective reality that President Trump represents. The clash between subjective reality and objective reality has launched what is now known as Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDR) or more recently Trump Anxiety Disorder (TAD). The incursion of objective reality is so threatening to anti-Trumpers that they break down psychologically and require medication and psychological services.

In times of severe emotional stress such as death, divorce, loss of a job, it is not uncommon for individuals to have a period of adjustment when they need time to come to terms with the reality of their new situation. In extreme cases of traumatic stress individuals may even withdraw from reality until they are strong enough to deal with the facts of their new situation. What is different about anti-Trumpers is that their coping mechanisms are so underdeveloped that they are traumatized by election outcomes and refuse to accept the loss of their preferred candidate. What happens? They suffer from Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDR).

Live Stream: Portland: Antifa vs American Christians
Saturday, August 4, 2018 10:35

Things are about to heat up in Portland today as groups clash from both sides. Law enforcement is out heavily that you can bet on today with tear gas ready and at their disposal and God knows what.

The Patriot Prayer protest, dubbed “Tiny’s Freedom March” attracted a large faction of anti-fascist groups to Terry Schrunk Plaza, a piece of federal land in the middle of the city.

PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — In a repeat of a clash between Patriot Prayer and Antifa one year ago, hundreds of people converged in downtown Portland and almost immediately began to skirmish, resulting in three arrests and one other federal citation.

Portland police tweeted, “Officers have observed participants at today’s events at Terry Schrunk Plaza and Chapman and Lownsdale Square participate in assaultive behavior.”

Portland Police Chief Danielle Outlaw released a statement regarding the protests.

“The intent of our presence today was to provide a safe environment for all participants, non-participants, and community members while ensuring the peaceful exercise of the First Amendment. The Police Bureau attempted to communicate directly with group organizers through the use of social media, a loud-hailer, and person-to-person communication in an effort to encourage an environment in which Portland community members could safely practice their right to free speech and assembly.

Hillary Is Linked to Red Dawn, Major Bank Fraud and International Terrorism

Hillary Is Linked to Red Dawn, Major Bank Fraud and International Terrorism

Hillary is the Clinton Foundation. The Clinton Foundation did not just sell uranium to the Russians, they have committed equally egregious offenses against the American people. The Clinton Foundation is intimately involved in criminal conspiracies with HSBC Bank who is involved with elements of not just terrorists and drug dealers, but with forces who plan to invade the United States through a Red Dawn invasion force. After investigating this for nearly 5 years, the pieces are falling into place and are creating an understandable scenario of how the globalists are planning to take down our country. The Deep State has failed and it is time to call in the big boys.

“I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain’s money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply.”

Nathan Rothschild

The Rothschilds are intimately involved with HSBC bank which is intimately involved in drug running, gun running and child-sex-trafficking. HSBC is linked to a potential Red Dawn invasion force of the United States as well as the funding of 5th column forces which have illegally entered the United States.

When we break down the coming conflict, the apparent enemies of the United States will become very obvious. Basically, we can conclude that the entire world’s banking industry is behind the planned take down of the United States.

Many CSS Sources Citing the Same Facts

Citing an unnamed DEA source in yesterday’s article, I detailed the following crimes involving Central and South American interests. According to the DEA official, the Deep State, through its CIA connections are running covert programs which are self-funding through illegal operations (i.e. gun running, drug running, child-sex-trafficking). In many ways, these programs are an extension of the framework of the old Iran-Contra affair. However, the Iran-Contra affair was associated with destroying the Sandinista communist empire of Daniel Ortega in Nicaragua. Should the Sandinistas had been totally successful. the Russians, a long-time Nicaragua ally, could have placed their backfire bombers in the country and the entire Southwestern United States would have been in range of these bombers, back in the 1980’s. However, in today’s upside-down world, the CIA, acting as an agent of HSBC bank, are helping Ortega directly and indirectly. Additionally, Ortega is providing funds, obtained through CIA assisted drug, gun and trafficking sources, to terrorist base training camps in El Salvador and Honduras. In every case, the money is being laundered through HSBC bank. HSBC, listed below, has been repeatedly busted for these activities. However, they pay fines, nobody goes to jail and they keep on stealing and dealing and planning the demise of the United States. HSBC can only get away with this if they have help from DOJ officials consisting of Loretta Lynch, Eric Holder, Jeff Sessions and Rod Rosenstein on their side, and this is the case.

Now, how can I be certain that his DEA agent is correct? The answer is simple, I have seen the proof before when former HSBC Senior VP, John Cruz, went rogue and exposed HSBC to both foreign and domestic involvement with rogue terrorists and cartel members as well as the nations of Peru, Mexico, El Salvador and Nicaragua. Because Cruz was relentless in his pursuit of justice against the bank. The bank fired Cruz for reporting these crimes to DHS and Loretta Lynch, then an United States Attorney.

As a result of the John Cruz whistle blowing, and despite the fact that key US officials initially stonewalled Cruz, the authorities were ultimately forced to react to the Cruz allegation of money laundering for terrorist/cartel interest in HSBC accounts.

From the 2012 report from the BBC:

HSBC has confirmed it is to pay US authorities $1.9bn (£1.2bn) in a settlement over money laundering, the largest paid in such a case.

A US Senate investigation said the UK-based bank had been a conduit for “drug kingpins and rogue nations”.

Money laundering is the process of disguising the proceeds of crime so that the money cannot be linked to the wrongdoing.

HSBC admitted having poor money laundering controls and apologized.

“We accept responsibility for our past mistakes,” said HSBC group chief executive Stuart Gulliver in a statement.

“We have said we are profoundly sorry for them, and we do so again.”

The bank said it had spent $290m on improving its systems to prevent money laundering and clawed back some bonuses paid to senior executives in the past.

These legal actions are called the proverbial slap on the wrist.

Let’s go back to the beginning. 

Bruce Steinberg and John Cruz were in possession of information that could have implicated both James Comey and Hillary Clinton in several criminal conspiracies. Comey served on the board of HSBC in London as cartel/terrorist organization were laundering their money through HSBC bank, much of it on behalf of Clinton (and we wonder why she was not indicted over the emails). And there was one more group that was participating in these escapades and it was the Clinton Foundation.

Today, one man is still alive and telling the story of Clinton/Comey criminal conspiracies and the other man’s corpse is not even recognizable after being burned beyond recognition in Costa Rica.

Bridgewater, James Comey and Bruce Steinberg

There is one significant and clear reason why John Cruz and his family are alive and Bruce Steinberg and his family are all dead. More on that later in the article.

Who is Bruce Steinberg? Or should I say, who was Bruce Steinberg? Bruce Steinberg and his entire family perished in fiery plane crash in Costa Rica that killed ten people.   Steinberg was also an executive at Bridgewater Associates, a company which, as Politico is reporting that James Comey spent three years as an executive employed by Bridgewater. Bridgewater Associates is a $150 billion hedge fund founded by Ray Dalio that the New Yorker has labeled “the world’s richest and strangest hedge fund”, as The New Yorker reported back in June of 2016. Ray Dalio was a key Clinton supporter and was staunchly opposed to Donald Trump. The Clinton’s were fighting rumors that they were involved in Bridgewater’s more nefarious activities along with James Comey. And now the link between Bridgewater and the Clintons is dead along with his entire family. This is reminiscent of so many other Clinton deals gone bad (i.e. Whitewater) and the trail of bodies that follows a Clinton-inspired financial fiasco (e.g. McDougal).

But Wait…The Trail of Bodies Grows Even Longer

Zero Hedge previously reported in yet another airplane crash, involving ANOTHER small aircraft, in another crash, that the Compass Group Plc Chief Executive Officer Richard Cousins and four members of Cousins family were killed in another event identical to the Steinberg family. Cousin;s seaplane crashed into the Hawkesbury River in Sydney, Australia. Cousins’ company the Compass Group built the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock. And how could Cousins have been a threat to the Clintons? Deciding what to put into the Presidential Library is an arduous task. One has to filter through volumes of documents and material that will not make it into the library. This task would have put Cousins in possession of some potentially damning information about the Clinton’s criminal activities. Of course, Cousins, on behalf of his firm, would have had to sign a non-disclosure agreement. However, such an agreement would not have been immune from a Federal subpoena for criminal wrongdoing. If I were an criminal investigator, this would be the starting point of any investigation into the Clinton criminal cartel.

Dew Lasers: California Fires Caused by Directed Energy Weapons Fox News Admits Usage (Video)

A directed-energy weapon (DEW) emits highly focused energy, transferring that energy to a target to damage it. Potential applications of this technology include anti-personnel weapon systems, potential missile defense system, and the disabling of lightly armored vehicles such as cars, drones, watercraft, and electronic devices such as mobile phones. The energy can come in various forms: Electromagnetic radiation, including radio frequency, microwave, lasers and masers Particles with mass, in particle-beam weapons Sound, in sonic weapons The Pentagon is researching technologies like directed-energy weapon and railguns to counter maturing threats posed by missile and hypersonic glide vehicles. These systems of missile defense are expected to come online in the mid to late-2020s.

No Longer a Conspiracy Theory but Conspiracy FACT: On September 28, 2017, about 10 days before the Northern California Fires in Wine Country began, Fox News ADMITS to the government having Laser Technology or Directed Energy Weapons (DEW). ATHENA, (Advanced Test High Energy Asset), is one of the most exciting of these new American laser weapons. During recent testing with the U.S. Army’s Space and Missile Defense Command at the Army’s White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico, the 30-kilowatt weapon slayed five Outlaw drones. Not toy hobby sized drones, but drones with nearly 11 foot wingspans.

Silent, invisible, deadly. The powerful ATHENA laser weapon can destroy enemy threats within seconds. For the United States, thanks to pioneering efforts of American companies like Lockheed Martin and the military, laser weapons are no longer the stuff of Star Wars and Star Trek. In near-term future battles, the U.S. military can choose to bring laser weapons mounted on vehicles, vessels, and more, to war. By comparison, the weapons of any enemy will look like bows and arrows. How does it work? On the most basic level, ATHENA destroys threats with heat. It is similar to when folks use a magnifying glass to start a fire while camping – but on an incredibly powerful level.

ATHENA is what is called a fiber laser. Fiber lasers combine individual lasers to generate a single, intense laser beam. Each laser is generated by the weapon’s fiber optics. This approach means that the power can be easily adjusted by adding more individual lasers to the combined beam or reducing the number. Lockheed Martin’s beam control tech uses lenses, mirrors, windows and software algorithms to shape the energy into a focused beam. As the light travels through the mirrors, lenses and windows, the ATHENA system concentrates and modifies the laser’s energy. Threats can come from any direction. ATHENA’s beam director and turret are designed to match this so the weapons can fire 360 degrees. Battles will never be the same Lockheed Martin has been pioneering in laser weapon systems for more than four decades. ATHENA’s upgrades and remarkable recent performance of defeating 100 percent of the drones is the latest exciting news in their laser family. ATHENA’s sibling, ADAM, is another laser.

During testing a few years ago, ADAM proved it could destroy fast attack military grade boats by burning through their hulls in less than 30 seconds – again from about a mile away. The company is further miniaturizing laser weapons for tactical U.S. Army and U.S. Marine Corps vehicles. For Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) and the Air Force Research Laboratory, Lockheed Martin has worked on a prototype turret to mount laser weapons on aircraft. What’s next? In near term battles, the US military will have the option to unleash laser weapons on vehicles, vessels and possibly even aircraft. The precision of lasers like ATHENA is already remarkable. As the technology continues to advance at a rapid pace in the U.S., lasers like ATHENA will be able to strike farther and farther away. And destroy bigger and bigger targets.

45,000 Sealed Federal Criminal Indictments Is Victory for ‘We the People’ if, and Only if, Followed by .01% Arrests and Full Truth as Explained by Congressperson McKinney’s 15-Minute Brief


With my documentation of the progression of these sealed indictments, possible meanings, and analysis here, please consider 6-term Congressperson and Green Party Presidential candidate Cynthia McKinney’s 15 minutes to explain who and what the Deep State is from her June 2018 Red Pill Expo talk (excludes 3 minutes of introductory remarks):

Documentation of Cynthia’s factual claims:

Some of Cynthia’s facts I’m fully confident to document as objectively accurate and independently verifiable for anyone caring to look:

Find Out More >


COINTELPRO was an FBI program to illegally monitor and end Americans’ right to assemble, learn, and take lawful actions regarding US government policies maintaining racism and neocolonial power (such as lie-filled and Orwellian-illegal war on Vietnam).

President Kennedy was assassinated by .01% Deep State “leadership” as proven by overwhelming evidence that if you want clearly explained, documented, and proven, you should really look.

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated by the .01% Deep State as proven by overwhelming evidence and jury verdict from the 1999 King Family civil trial:

US 111th Military Intelligence Group were at Dr. King’s location during the assassination.
20th Special Forces Group had an 8-man sniper team at the assassination location on that day.
Usual Memphis Police special body guards were advised they “weren’t needed” on the day of the assassination.

Regular and constant police protection for Dr. King was removed from protecting Dr. King an hour before the assassination.

Military Intelligence set-up photographers on the roof of a fire station with clear view to Dr. King’s balcony.
Dr. King’s room was changed from a secure 1st-floor room to an exposed balcony room.

Memphis police ordered the scene where multiple witnesses reported as the source of shooting cut down of their bushes that would have hid a sniper.

Emigrate While You Still Can! Learn More…

Along with sanitizing a crime scene, police abandoned investigative procedure to interview witnesses who lived by the scene of the shooting.

The rifle Mr. Ray delivered was not matched to the bullet that killed Dr. King, and was not sighted to accurately shoot.

Activist Fred Hampton was assassinated by Deep State orders.

The 1968 Democratic Party Presidential nominee, Robert Kennedy, was shot from behind his head from no more than one to two inches according to the autopsy, that eliminates Sirhan as a suspect.

There are likely hundreds of such .01% assassinations in recent history.

US military armed attacks around the world are illegal in all cases except when another nation’s government attacks, therefore all current US wars and armed attacks are illegal.

Current US wars and armed attacks are started with lies known to be lies as they were told.
The US economy is meant to funnel wealth to the .01%. Obvious solutions of public banking and monetary reform are worth ~$1,000,000 per US household.

Corporate media and public education are propaganda to “cover” .01% ongoing crimes of neocolonial rogue state empire controlling resources (natural and human).

More documentation:

Among key facts:

US ongoing lie-started and Orwellian-illegal Wars of Aggression require all US military and government to refuse all war orders because there are no lawful orders for obviously unlawful wars.

Officers are required to arrest those who issue obviously unlawful orders. And again, those of us working for this area of justice are aware of zero attempts to refute this with, “War law states (a, b, c), so the wars are legal because (d, e, f).” All we receive is easy-to-reveal bullshit.

The US is a literal rogue state empire led by neocolonial looting liars. The history is uncontested and taught to anyone taking comprehensive courses. If anyone has any refutations of this professional academic factual claim for any of this easy-to-read and documented content, please provide it. Rogue state empire is the most accurate term to describe the US for the following reasons:

People around the world view the US as the greatest threat to peace; voted three times more dangerous than any other country. The data confirm this conclusion:

Since WW2, Earth has had 248 armed conflicts. The US started 201 of them.

These US armed attacks have killed ~30 million and counting; 90% of these deaths are innocent children, the elderly and ordinary working civilian women and men. The US has war-murdered more than Hitler’s Nazis.
The total deaths caused by rogue state empire for resource control (natural and human) in the last 20 years is ~400 million, more than all total wars and violence in all recorded Earth history.

Iran has never threatened to “wipe Israel off the map” and only has IAEA-verified legal energy and medicine programs with nuclear materials. Trump and corporate media continues and escalates easily-verified lies to threaten more illegal war on Iran.

Israel engages in lie-started and illegal War of Aggression on Gaza; ironically the largest concentration camp in world history. This is also easy to verify.

US military now illegally occupy eight bases in Syria (and here), with escalating bombing of Syria and Iraq of over 4,000 bombs/month and over 84,000 since 2014. The US acknowledges ~500 civilian deaths from these bombs, with independent count of ~750 in just June 2017.

Corporate media are criminally complicit through constant lies of omission and commission to “cover” all these crimes. Historic tragic-comic empire is only possible through such straight-face lying, making our Emperor’s New Clothes analogy perfectly chosen.

War law isn’t the only casualty as the .01% have provided “leadership” for the destruction of nearly all rights lawfully guaranteed in the US Bill of Rights within the US Constitution, and in Orwellian inversion of limited government.

This satire from The Onion is closer to truth than what our lying sacks-of-spin “leaders” and corporate media bury us under.

We the People’s choice: ongoing debt, destruction, death OR .01% arrests for OBVIOUS crimes annually killing millions, harming billions, looting trillions

The categories of crime include:

Wars of Aggression (the worst crime a nation can commit).
Likely treason for lying to US military, ordering unlawful attack and invasions of foreign lands, and causing thousands of US military deaths.

Crimes Against Humanity for ongoing intentional policy of poverty that’s killed over 400 million human beings just since 1995 (~75% children; more deaths than from all wars in Earth’s recorded history).
US military, law enforcement, and all with Oaths to support and defend the US Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic, face an endgame choice:

Demand arrests, with those with lawful authority to enact it. An arrest is the lawful action to stop apparent crimes, with the most serious crimes documented here meaning the most serious need for arrests.

Watch the US escalate its rogue state crimes that annually kill millions, harm billions, and loot trillions.

In just 90 seconds, former US Marine Ken O’Keefe powerfully states how you may choose to voice “very obvious solutions”: arrest the criminal leaders (video starts at 20:51, then finishes this episode of Cross Talk):

Las Vegas gunman lost money, became unstable before shooting

By Ken Ritter and Michelle L. Price, Associated Press  |  Updated Aug 3rd, 2018 @ 12:45pm

14 photos

YouTube: FINAL REPORT: Case is closed on Las Vegas massacre (Full press conference 00:27:17)
FOX 10 Phoenix
LAS VEGAS (AP) — In the year before Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock carried out the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the high-stakes gambler appeared to have become increasingly unstable, distant and constantly complained of being sick, according to a final investigative report released Friday.Financial records also showed Paddock had lost more than $1.5 million in the two years before the Oct. 1 shooting that left 58 people dead and more than 800 others injured.

One of Paddock’s brothers told investigators that he believed the gunman had a “mental illness and was paranoid and delusional,” and his doctor believed he may have been bipolar.

Despite the revelations, police say they are closing their investigation without a definitive answer for why Paddock amassed an arsenal of weapons and unleashed gunfire from a hotel suite onto a concert crowd below.

“What we have been able to answer are the questions of who, what, when, where and how,” Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said. “What we have not been able to definitively answer is … why Stephen Paddock committed this act.”

Paddock was the only gunman, and he didn’t leave a manifesto “or even a note” to answer questions about his motive, the sheriff said.

“Today it is still incredibly difficult to try to comprehend this senseless act of violence,” he said.

With the final report released, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has closed its 10-month investigation and no one else will be charged, said Lombardo, the elected head of the agency.

Earlier this year, U.S. prosecutors charged a man accused of selling illegal armor-piercing bullets found in Paddock’s room at the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip. Douglas Haig has pleaded not guilty and maintains he sold tracer ammunition, which illuminate a bullet’s path.

Interviews with Paddock’s doctor indicated he had a “troubled mind” but displayed no behavior leading up to the shooting that would have prompted someone to alert police, the sheriff said.

One of the gunman’s brothers, Bruce Paddock, told investigators he had not spoken with his sibling for more than 10 years but believed he had “mental illness and was paranoid and delusional,” according to the report. He also said he didn’t believe his brother was a violent person or abused drugs or alcohol.

Bruce Paddock speculated his brother “would’ve had to be ‘very pissed off'” to carry out a violent attack, the report says.

Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend said he repeatedly complained that he was sick and doctors could not cure him. Marilou Danley told investigators that doctors told Paddock he had a “chemical imbalance.”

The report also included a summary of 14 of Paddock’s bank accounts, which contained a total of $2.1 million in September 2015. Two years later, the amount had dropped to $530,000. He “wasn’t as successful in the gambling as he was in the previous years,” Lombardo said.

Investigators said Paddock paid more than $600,000 to casinos and over $170,000 to credit card companies. The analysis said Paddock also made nearly $95,000 in firearms-related purchases.

The report gave no other information about the casino purchases. High-rollers, like Paddock, are often given credit lines at casinos.

The final details of the investigation came after police released 13 batches of investigative documents, 911 calls, police reports, witness statements and video over the last three months.

They have illustrated chaos, heartbreak and heroism from first responders, concertgoers and others.

Police body camera video made public earlier have shown officers using explosives to blast through the door of a 32nd-floor hotel suite to find Paddock dead on the floor from a self-inflicted gunshot. Assault-style weapons fitted with rapid-fire “bump stock” devices were strewn about the room.

The FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit is expected to release a psychological profile of the gunman later this year, Lombardo said, noting that authorities want to leave “no stone unturned.”

He said the department is still conducting internal reviews into individual officers’ actions on Oct. 1, including one veteran officer who froze in a hallway a floor below where Paddock was firing onto the crowd, according to a police report and body camera footage.

Officer Cordell Hendrex acknowledged in a written police report that he was “terrified with fear” and said, “I froze right there in the middle of the hall for how long I can’t say,” he wrote.

Video shows Hendrex, a rookie officer and three hotel security officers waiting in the hallway for about five minutes before moving to a stairwell toward the 32nd floor, where they remained for at least 15 minutes.

Officials have said the attack had no link to terrorism, but hotel owner MGM Resorts International has invoked a federal law enacted after the Sept. 11 terror attacks.

The company sued hundreds of survivors or families of slain victims, asking federal courts to qualify the shooting as an act of terrorism and declare the company has no liability.


Facebook, YouTube and Apple remove Alex Jones content due to hate speech

Facebook, YouTube and Apple remove Alex Jones content due to hate speech  

AppleFacebook and YouTube clamped down on content by Alex Jones Monday.

Apple confirmed on Monday that it had removed five out of six podcasts, which includes Jones’ infamous “The Alex Jones Show” as well as a number of other InfoWars audio streams. The news was originally reported by BuzzFeed News.

Facebook and Google made similar decisions later on Monday. Facebook removed four pages controlled by him, while Google removed the official “Alex Jones Channel” on its platform. The YouTube channel for InfoWars, the media company owned by Alex Jones, still remains live.

Jones, a controversial conspiracy theorist who has claimed that the 2012 Sandy Hook school shooting was a hoax, has been hit with other content bans from the likes of Spotify.

Apple’s move seems slightly more dramatic — the company has taken down entire libraries of InfoWars podcasts, rather than a select few episodes.

“Apple does not tolerate hate speech, and we have clear guidelines that creators and developers must follow to ensure we provide a safe environment for all of our users,” an Apple spokesperson said in a statement on Monday.

“Podcasts that violate these guidelines are removed from our directory making them no longer searchable or available for download or streaming. We believe in representing a wide range of views, so long as people are respectful to those with differing opinions.”

Facebook ban

Later on Monday morning, Facebook announced it was removing four of Jones’ pages for persistently uploading content in breach of the social network’s content guidelines.

The company said it made the decision after receiving additional complaints about inappropriate content on Jones’ pages. The pages were removed “for glorifying violence, which violates our graphic violence policy, and using dehumanizing language to describe people who are transgender, Muslims and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies.” The decision was made independently of any other companies removing content from their sites, a Facebook spokesperson said.

In July, Facebook removed four of Jones’ videos and hit his own personal profile with a 30-day ban over what the firm deemed as a violation of its policies on bullying and hate speech. The company said at the time the official InfoWars page, among others where Jones was an administrator, were getting close to the threshold of being banned from the site due to repeated violations.

The company explained on Monday that when it deletes content, the removal counts as a strike — essentially a warning — against the person that uploaded it. In the case of pages, Facebook said it holds both a page and an administrator who posts content in violation of its rules accountable.

But it also said that the reason for removing Jones’ pages was in no way related to concerns over fake news.

“All four pages have been unpublished for repeated violations of Community Standards and accumulating too many strikes,” the company said in a blog post.

“While much of the discussion around Infowars has been related to false news, which is a serious issue that we are working to address by demoting links marked wrong by fact checkers and suggesting additional content, none of the violations that spurred today’s removals were related to this.”

Facebook in particular has faced calls to remove Jones from the platform altogether. Last month, the company was asked by a CNN journalist why it had not banned InfoWars completely, given its aim to crack down on fake news. Facebook — along with CEO Mark Zuckerberg — defended the decision not to remove InfoWars.

Tech giants have faced calls from both sides of the political spectrum to be more transparent about the way they approach content flagging and banning. On the left, there are critics who say these firms are not doing enough to take down harmful and offensive content, while on the right there are some who think internet firms are routinely censoring conservative posts.


The Rothschild Syria Connection – Major Revelations

Investment Watch – by Thinker

The documents the Department of Justice doesn’t want to leak, might reveal to much truth about the war games for land, oil, power, by the “rule of law” deep state. What was Iraq like before U.S. invasion for humanitarian reasons? Safe enough for any American to visit! What was Libya like before Obama bombed it without congressional or public approval? All the refugees stopped there, were welcomed. Now they are being sold as slaves and the whole country is in chaos. What does Donald Trump really know and what is being kept from him about what is really happening in the Middle East? Will he have to turn to alternative media to learn what is happening among the anti-Trump employees that still number in the hundreds? Has he brought back the purged commanders who didn’t pass the Obama litmus test? Only time and actions will reveal what is real… 

What happened when the U.S. went into Afghanistan for humanitarian reasons? The poppy fields were replenished and the opioid use in the United States of America tripled, with 10,000 deaths in 2016 in Dayton, Ohio by itself. Zika and Ebola can’t touch the deep state Republican and Democratic wars for self gain, babies, drugs, human trafficking, oil, etc…that have killed so many men and women, fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, and divided families. The United States exports more weapons than any other nation – which means American companies profit from other countries’ wars.

Rothschild funded both sides of every war

Keep the men and women of the world employed, have another war and add some more?

Who’s playing the game the best?

The ones who are richer than the rest!!!

The Rothschild Dynasty makes money off of both sides of every war. This has been ripped from Endgame Documentary by Alex Jones of Infowars.comPrisonplanet.com, and Jones Report. Also World War I never should have happened but the Rothschild banking cartels wanted money and power plus an excuse to build a league of nations. The Rothschild family bankrolled the factions and their fortunes grew as each war gives them more wealth.www.youtube.com/watch?v=kRFR-hvo3XM

Summary of Brenda’s August 3, 2018, channeled 15-minute “Creation Energies” show at BlogTalkRadio.com/brenda-hoffman:    For many, the outer chaos is becoming more illogical. You feel like parents watching two children fight over one sand pail despite another available pail. Some of you will continue to focus on outer energies for you’re discovering new ways to create a more equal and harmonious world. Others of you have little interest. You will know your objective by your interests which are more focused daily. 

“Flitting Between Relationships” is the title of last week’s “Brenda’s Blog” – her weekly channeled blog for LifeTapestryCreations.com.

Brenda’s “Creation Energies” show and “Brenda’s Blog” contain different channeled information.

Dear Ones,

We wish to address your fear that all is not well in your life. That what you experienced the past few days will be forever.

Even though such might be true for those who do not wish to join the light train, those of you reading this message no longer need to believe in doom and gloom. For you, en masse, have transitioned beyond fear.

You are no longer of 3D no matter how diligently you try to be.

Some of you are laughing because who would wish to remain in fear given the opportunity of a life of joy? Who indeed? So it is you have cleared entire lifetimes of fear, as well as fear dust pockets. Resulting in your accurate proclamation that you are no longer of 3D.

If you are angry or fearful, you are merely playing at being of 3D. A somewhat difficult concept to grasp for who would wish to play with fear and anger? You or you would not be asking about fear.

So it is you are learning you no longer wish to feel or play with fear. The fear that was is no longer fun, interesting, or practical. For when you become fearful or angry, you halt the flow of love and joy that is now rightfully yours.

What are you to do if someone in your inner circle is projecting fear or anger? The answer is always your choice. But the choice you are discovering as the most uncomfortable internally is to join them in their fear or anger. For doing so merely enhances their anger, their fear.

Perhaps such does not necessarily yet compute with you, but it will. For you are discovering that joining someone beginning to transition or solidly in 3D, does not make your life or their life more joyful. It merely becomes a group pity party.

Perhaps, you are doing so to “whip them into shape” or in more Universal terms, “for them to partake of love and joy.” Something you are not capable of doing. For each must declare freedom from fear in their own way and time.

Some of you are concerned those you love may never shift away from fear. You cannot make anyone do anything even though their need for love is obvious.

Many are now moving through their deepest fears, their dark night of the soul. Something you accomplished months or years ago. So just as is true for an older sibling who cannot understand why their younger sibling does not comprehend the rules of the game they wish to play, so it is for you now.

You have found the light. But that does not mean those you love are at the same place or Universal age if you will.

You cannot make anyone do anything, or more to the point for this channel, feel anything. This is an inside-out transition. So your words of love, support, anger, or fear mean little or nothing to them for they are a different Universal age.

Allow them to transition in their time. The question then becomes, “What if the two of you are too far apart emotionally?” Again, that is your choice. Do you continue on your path knowing you will leave them behind? Do you slow down to help them along? Or do you leave completely?

A quandary in which more and more of you are finding yourselves enmeshed. Such is little different from an older sibling remaining in a school grade so his or her younger sibling can catch up. Of course, such does not happen for each child must learn what they are capable of learning when they are capable of doing so.

So it is for you. Even though you may wish to slow your progress so those you love will catch up to you, such is not possible for you are too advanced to slow down. In truth, you are racing down your path.

Perhaps you are fearful of losing a relationship – not that that relationship is particularly right for you, but that it is what you know. It is comfortable.

Those who make you angry or fearful, but remain of your heart, will catch up eventually just as is true for a younger sibling.

The difference is that it will not take decades or years for such to happen for you are their beacon, their light. And they are more afraid of losing you than you can possibly imagine.

Of course, such an explanation does not cover those who have no intention of transitioning or are not part of your beacon. For your beacon can only be seen by those on their transition path.

You will know without needing to check with friends or relatives if those who make you angry or fearful will continue to be of your life. If the thought of leaving them, gives you a feeling of great relief, it is time to go. If such a thought creates sadness or a feeling that you do not wish to leave their presence, it merely means they are of your beacon just not at your current level.

Which of course, appears ominous for when will you feel the need to leave? Those in your light, your beacon are transitioning much more rapidly than was true for you.

As a historical reminder, the first United States scoutmasters needed years to discover what lay beyond the Mississippi River. Those scoutmasters were followed by wagon trains and eventually railroads and automobiles. Each method of transportation or discovery more rapidly completing what initially required years. So it is for you now – and those you love.

If you need to leave them, you will know. And if such a thought strikes fear in your heart, most likely they are transitioning but at a different level. Allow them to be as you continue your joy life. They will catch up more rapidly than you can imagine. Not in years or decades, but months, weeks, and days. So be it. Amen.

A giant floating trash collector will try to scoop up the Great Pacific Garbage Patch


SAN FRANCISCO – On Sept. 8, an ungainly, 2,000-foot-long contraption will steam under the Golden Gate Bridge in what’s either a brilliant quest or a fool’s errand.

Dubbed the Ocean Cleanup Project, this giant sea sieve consists of pipes that float at the surface of the water with netting below, corralling trash in the center of a U-shaped design.

The purpose of this bizarre gizmo is as laudable as it is head-scratching: to collect millions of tons of garbage from what’s known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which can harm and even kill whales, dolphins, seals, fish and turtles that consume it or become entangled in it, according to researchers at Britain’s University of Plymouth.

The project is the expensive, untried brainchild of a 23-year-old Dutch college dropout named Boyan Slat, who was so disgusted by the plastic waste he encountered diving off Greece as a teen that he has devoted his life to cleaning up the mess.

 Along with detractors who want to prioritize halting the flow of plastics into the ocean, the Dutch nonprofit gathered support from several foundations and philanthropists, including billionaire Salesforce founder Marc Benioff. In 2017, the Ocean Cleanup Project received $5.9 million in donations and reported reserves from donations in previous years of $17 million.

How it works

The Ocean Cleanup Project’s passive system involves a floating series of connected pipes the length of five football fields that float at the surface of the ocean. Each closed pipe is 4 feet in diameter. Below these hang a 9-foot net skirt.

The system moves more slowly than the water, allowing the currents and waves to push trash into its center to collect it. Floating particles are captured by the net while the push of water against the net propels fish and other marine life under and beyond.

The system is fitted with solar-powered lights and anti-collision systems to keep any stray ships from running into it, along with cameras, sensors and satellites that allow it to communicate with its creators.

For the most part the system will operate on its own, though a few engineers will remain on a nearby ship to observe. Periodically a garbage ship will be sent out to scoop up the collected trash and transport it to shore, where it will be recycled.

Misguided focus

Marine biologists who study the problem say at this point things are so bad that it’s worth a shot.

“I applaud the efforts to remove plastics – clearly any piece of debris cleared from the ocean is helpful,” said Rolf Halden, a professor of environmental health engineering at Arizona State University.

But he added a caveat, namely that there’s not much point to cleaning up the mess unless we also stop the tons of plastic entering the oceans each day. “If you allow the doors to be open during a sand storm while you’re vacuuming, you won’t get very far,” Halden said.

And that gets at the heart of some of the criticism.

Stopping plastics from making their way into the oceans “should be the focus of 95 percent of our current effort, with the remaining 5 percent on clean up,” said Richard Thompson, who heads the International Marine Litter Research Unit at the University of Plymouth in the United Kingdom.

“If we consider cleanup to be a center stage solution, then we accept it is OK to contaminate the oceans and that our children and our children’s children will continue to clean up the mess,” he said.

Another concern is that the project only targets plastic pollution floating at the top of the ocean, although researchers have found microplastics from the waves all the way down to the sea floor.

“They’re not all buoyant. Some sink, some remain floating at different levels based on their density and the water pressure,” said Charles Rolsky, a Ph.D. researcher who studies ocean plastic pollution at Arizona State University.

There’s also the possibility that the contraption might break up in storms and simply make more plastic trash.

“The ocean is strong and powerful and likes to rip things up,” said Miriam Goldstein, director of ocean policy at the Center for American Progress and an oceanographer who together with physical oceanographer Kim Martini has been publishing critiques of the project.

The foundation – which openly refers to itself as a “moon shot project” – responds that cleanups are an important part of the story.

More: Arctic ice choked with record amount of plastic from cigarette butts to packing material

“The current plastic pollution will not go away by itself,” spokesman Rick van Holst Pellekaan told USA TODAY in an email.

To deal with the baseline problem, he said the project is considering spinoff systems for coastal areas and rivers that would intercept plastic before it reaches the ocean.

There’s a lot to be stopped. As much as 9.5 million tons of trash is deposited into the ocean each year, according to a report by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.

Plastic is different than other trash because it never decomposes. While it breaks down into smaller and smaller parts called microplastics, they never become bioavailable, meaning they can never provide nourishment to marine life.

The biggest sources today are countries that have rapidly developing consumer economies but whose waste management practices haven’t caught up, often in Asia.

“They simply don’t have the systems in place to deal with this nondegradable material,” Goldstein said.

Discovering the Patch

First described in 1988, ocean-borne trash patches such as the Pacific one consist of a huge concentration of garbage, mostly made up of plastics. Due to circulating ocean currents called gyres (something like slow-moving whirlpools) they accumulate floating trash in areas hundreds of miles across. There are five gyres worldwide, according to the National Ocean Service.

About 70 percent of the litter in these patches is made up of plastic, according to a British study published last year, with close to 50 percent made up of discarded fishing nets, a study published by the Ocean Cleanup Project found earlier this year.

It was cleaning up these convergence zones that obsessed Slat after his high school diving experience. He eventually presented a TED talk on some of his ideas after he graduated from high school in 2013.

That talk went viral, a crowdfunding project to raise money to implement a cleanup began, and Slat ended up dropping out of the aerospace engineering department at Delft University to focus on the cleanup.

Fast forward five years, and a team of international engineers and scientists who have been working to build the cleanup system across the bay from San Francisco are weeks away from launch.

The plan

The project’s first cleanup system is scheduled to be towed out to a spot 240 nautical miles off the U.S. coast on Sept. 8, from a dock in Alameda, California, where it’s being built. It will spend between 40 and 60 days there for real-world testing.

The event will be live-streamed online, and the nonprofit is also welcoming supporters to come see it in person as it sets off on its maiden voyage.

If it performs well, the system will then be towed out a further 960 miles to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch between California and Hawaii.

The goal is to deploy 60 such systems by 2020, which the group believes will clean up 50 percent of the garbage in the garbage patch in five years time.

While the scientists who study ocean plastic pollution aren’t convinced this will fix the problem, it might help bring the problem more into the public eye. In Rolskly’s opinion, there’s just one good thing about plastic pollution – it’s one of the few forms of pollution you can see with the naked eye, which may in the end be what helps end it.

“It’s really repellant,” he said. “It triggers the right emotions to get the political will to implement change.”







The Rat Trap
Posted on August 7, 2018 by People for Life and Freedom
A rat looked through a crack in the wall to see the farmer and his wife opening a package. What food might it contain? He was aghast to discover that it was a rat trap. Retreating to the farmyard the rat proclaimed the warning; “There is a rat trap in the house, a rat trap in the house!”

The chicken clucked and scratched, raised her head and said, “Excuse me, Mr. Rat, I can tell this is a grave concern to you, but it is of no consequence to me. I cannot be bothered by it.” So.. the Chicken returned to clucking and scratching.

The rat turned to the pig and told him, “There is a rat trap in the house, a rat trap in the house!”. “I am so very sorry Mr. Rat,” sympathized the pig, “but there nothing I can do about it but pray. Be assured that you are in my prayers.” And the Pig returned to the slop.

The rat turned to the cow. She said, “Like wow, Mr. Rat. A rat trap. I am in grave danger. Duh?” How will a rat trap affect me? And she returned to leisurely grazing on grass.

So the rat, head down and dejected, returned to the house to face the farmer’s rat trap alone. That very night a sound was heard throughout the house, like the sound of a rat trap catching its prey.

The farmer’s wife rushed to see what was caught. In the darkness, she did not see that it was a venomous snake whose tail the trap had caught. The snake bit the farmer’s wife. The farmer rushed her to the hospital.

She returned home with a fever. Now everyone knows you treat a fever with fresh chicken soup, so the farmer took his hatchet to the farmyard for the soup’s main ingredient, the CHICKEN.

His wife’s sickness continued so friends and neighbors came to sit with her around the clock. To feed them the farmer butchered the PIG.

The farmer’s wife did not get well. She died, and so many people came for her funeral that the farmer had the COW slaughtered to provide meat for all of them to eat. So the next time you hear that someone is facing a problem and think that it does not concern you, remember that when there is a rat trap in the house, the whole farmyard is at risk.


Government Created The Plastic Straw And Pollution Problem By Banning Hemp

Posted: 05 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

The recent ban of plastic straws in numerous municipalities throughout California is a striking example of how the government passes revenue-generating laws in a frantic attempt to solve problems of their own making. There is no doubt that plastic pollution is a serious problem that needs to be addressed by the people of the planet. According to a report published by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, by the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the oceans than there are fish. Right now, one garbage truck of plastic is dumped into the ocean every minute.



Breaking down water pollutants in water, naturally: Simple method uses vitamin C, green LED light and a catalyst

Posted: 07 Aug 2018 07:38 AM PDT

Water pollution is on the rise globally. However, available methods that destroy pollutants in water use expensive and complex high-power lasers. That is – until a team of scientists from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) developed a new method that easily and cost-effectively breaks down stubborn pollutants in water. Their method – which could very well be a game-changer – only required a green LED light, a catalyst, and vitamin C, and these three ingredients can be used to create special types of electrons that reliably destroy the pollutants in water. Scientists in photochemistry are investigating on how light can be utilized to initiate chemical reactions.

“The idea is that light penetrates a molecule and triggers a reaction there,” said Martin Goez, a professor from MLU and one of the researchers of the study.

They called these special electrons “hydrated electrons.” These are released by light energy from their molecular compound in vitamin C to water, where they exist freely. In this state, the electrons become highly reactive and break down pollutants, without leaving any harmful residues.

The research team tested their developed method on chloroacetic acid, a highly toxic substance. Using their approach, they were able to break down the compound into its harmless components. In addition, their cost-effective method could generate just as many electrons as a high-power laser.

The approach, according to the researchers, is effective for decomposing harmful chlorides or fluorides as well as many other photochemical reactions that are hard to initiate through other methods.

“Our system consists of a standard green light-emitting diode, traces of a metal complex that acts as a catalyst and vitamin C. This method can be taught to undergrad students at a very early stage,” Goez explained.

In conclusion, the findings of the study indicated that the approach developed by MLU scientists is simple and cost-effective.

More on water pollution

Pollution in water occurs when toxic substances get into bodies of water (such as lakes, rivers, and oceans), being dissolved in them, lying suspended in the water, or depositing on the river beds and the ocean floor, which degrades the quality of water.

Some causes of water pollution include sewage from households, factories, and even commercial buildings. These become effluents which are often disposed into the sea. It also harms water health, particularly when people flush chemicals and pharmaceutical substances down the toilet or sinks to the sewer.

Another cause of water pollution is the disposal of solid wastes by humans in rivers, lakes, and oceans. People also litter items, such as cardboard, styrofoam, aluminum, plastic, and glass, in bodies of water.

Moreover, industrial waste from factories that use freshwater to carry waste from the plant into rivers contaminates water with pollutants, such as asbestos, lead, mercury, and petrochemicals. Oil spills from tankers and oil from ship travel also cause water pollution as oil does not dissolve in water and forms a thick sludge. Other causes include acid rain and an increase in water temperature.

Since water covers 70 percent of the surface of the Earth and makes up 60 percent of the human body, pollution in water greatly affects marine ecosystems, wildlife health, and well-being of humans. Harmful effects of water pollution include the death of aquatic animals, disruption of food chains, diseases, and destruction of ecosystems.

Perfect Life Mantra, Based On Zodiac Signs

By Staff Contributor 

We all need a push in the right direction.

Every zodiac sign has its flaws, but we also all have the ability to learn and grow. Sometimes life can get us down and into places we never meant to be, but that’s when you need that little push to get you back and going in the right direction.
We’re all a little different, and we all have ways of dealing when life gets us down, but if you look to the stars for inspiration and guidance, you’ll see that there’s something out there that can motivate each and every one of us.
It’s widely believed that mantras, which are short sayings or chants, help us not only focus on but believe in our goals. Through the magnetic power of attraction, which states that like attracts like, the mantras we repeat will attract and invite what we want in our life.
Recommended: According To Your Zodiac Sign This Is How To HEAL Yourself
It might sound unbelievable, but if you can convince yourself of something, the stars will align. Say one (or more) of these mantras over and over throughout the day, or in a time of need.
You could be in the shower, driving, meditating or really doing anything. The nice thing about mantras is that you can fit them in at just about any time of day since they don’t disrupt your actions.
Take a look below at your zodiac sign to see which life mantra suits you best, so you can get back on track.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

You can be bossy, and have trouble letting others take the lead. Going with the flow is a no-go, and this can get overwhelming, since not everything is within your control.
Which stinks, because if it WAS, the world would be such a great place, right?
Repeat after me: accept what is, let go of what was, and have faith in what could be.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

You’re likely no stranger to self indulgences or feeling much to lazy to feel motivated. You’re definitely a hard worker, but you’ve got to start the engines to get the machine to work.
If it were up to you, you would achieve all your goals with as little effort as possible. Isn’t that what everyone wants?
Repeat after me: nothing worth having comes easy.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

As a grand socialite, you can have a natural desire to please and relate to everyone in one way or another. But doing this can make you seem two faced, and admittedly, maybe you’ve reluctantly noticed this already.
Repeat after me: If it is not right, do not do it, if it not true, do not say it.

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

You’re very in touch with yourself and the way you feel. This can throw you (and everyone around you) for quite the whirlwind.
This can lead to a sense of irrationality and impulsive, which takes you from that center you need to keep hold of.
Repeat after me: Never let your emotions overpower your intelligence.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

You can be a bit self centered, too focused on yourself to consider other peoples’ feelings. You do care about your friends, but they can be overlooked, or fall in second, which feels shitty for everyone, especially for a loyal Leo.
Repeat: It’s not all about me

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

You’re a talented person, whether you accept it or not, and this can make you into a perfectionist.
We all know nothing and no one is perfect, but that doesn’t stop you from trying, and being so critical of yourself and everything around you takes the joy out of it all. It can take the joy out of everything you do.
Repeat after me: I am enough.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

To put it simply, decisions aren’t the easiest things for you to make. You see the appeal in a lot of things! You feel one way, but you think the other option has some great benefits, and so forth.
Repeat after me: follow your heart but take your brain with you.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

You are known for your harshness and excellence in getting revenge. This can seriously mess up your karma, and you’re aware that you can go too far if you don’t get a reign on yourself.
Anger doesn’t suit you, doll. Well, actually, it does suit you, but for the safety of yourself and everyone around you, its best to put that look aside.
Repeat after me: kill them with kindness and bury them with a smile.
Recommended: Cosmic Marriage: Your True Partner Has Already Been Decided

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

You can be distant, and push people away. This is made much easier when you act like a cold know-it-all. But despite coming off as cold and pushing people away to protect yourself, you know when people are worth keeping around.
So, as someone that loves to learn, you know that you’ve got plenty more to learn, right? The people around you aren’t the only ones that are a little clueless.
Repeat after me: be willing to listen to others and be teachable. You’re not right about everything. Nobody is.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Long story short, you worry. A lot.
Repeat after me: worrying will never change the outcome.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

You’re known to be a bit standoffish and stubborn, so let’s just knock out two birds with one stone.
Repeat after me: Open mind, open heart.
Recommended:  Dates of Birth Is Not an Accident – Here’s How to Decode your Life Purpose.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

You’re in touch with your emotions and understanding those around you. You’re so understanding, in fact, that you can take things to heart that aren’t actually a big deal. Not everyone is as sensitive as you are.
Repeat after me: don’t over-think , just let it go.

Happy 8:8 Lions Gate!

Posted: 08 Aug 2018 07:14 AM PDT

BIANCA ZO: “Returning To The Heart Of The Lions Gate”

Why the Lions Gate is actually taking place on/around the 22/23 August, and the importance of going outside and connecting directly with the Stars.

What is the Lions Gate?

I have seen various information being shared about the Lions Gate, what it is and when it is. Most sharers connect it to the 8/8 August Gateway and associate it with the Egyptian Culture and their celebration of a particular significant cosmic alignment — during Sirius’s helical rising (when the Star System rises close to the Sun/Horizon in the East), the Sun is in Leo, and there is an alignment with Sirius and Orion’s Belt. This alignment connects with and activates the Giza pyramid stellar geometries and alignments, as well as the Sphinx which gazes due East to watch Sirius and Orion rise in the early Hours of the morning and thereafter witnesses the Sun Rise in Leo.
It is proposed by some researchers of the Egyptian Temples that the Sphinx was actually built during the Golden Age of Leo approximately 13000 years ago (10 000 BC), This was when the Sun rose in Leo during the vernal (Spring) Equinox, initiating a Golden Age on Earth, which involved the end of an Ice-Age and the rise of the advanced civilization that built the Sphinx in Egypt. Most sharers associate the name of the Lions Gate with the Sun-Leo alignment which amplifies the Star Lion/Leo Constellation Frequency bandwidth’s transmission into Earth due to Leo being ‘ruled’ by/strongly connected to the Sun. It would make sense that this culture would celebrate this alignment which marked the beginning of their Golden Age and the rise of their civilization each year. Many of the Egyptian Deities associated with First Time and Creation are leonine beings, and the ancient tradition of lion shamanism/priests in the Egyptian and African cultures also eludes to the spiritual significance of the leonine beings and the consciousness/sacred knowledge that they hold/carry and transmit.

What is the Lions Gate Really?

Leading into the Lions Gate, I was given a book to read called “the Mystery of the White Lions” by Linda Tucker. I have had a strong connection to these beings my whole spiritual journey and so was very excited to learn more about their origins and the significance of their physical return on Earth for Humanity. This books documents the birthing and return of the White Lions to the Timbavati region of South Africa around 400 years ago, and the increasing activation of this ‘dormant’ DNA strand within the Lions from this region, leading to a growing number of White Lions being born and bred around the world and especially in South Africa. It also speaks about the Lions connection to the Sun and the Stars.
It is understood by all indigenous cultures around the world that life on Earth originated in the Stars. In the book, Credo Mutwa – high Sunasi and keeper of the Sacred African Traditional Knowledge — shares how his people understand that all beings and Animals on Earth have their origins in the Stars, and that the constellations — that have been long associated with Animals by all Star Watching Nations on Earth — are directly connected to their Animal counterparts on Earth. One can understand this through the perspective of seeing all of life as universal energy expressing itself in different tones, patterns and forms. These Stars hold and transmit specific energies/frequencies and consciousness, which is projected into/transmitted into the Earth. These constellations form patterns of Energy which is made manifest in the Earths fertile womb as the Earthly/Material reflection and expression of that same energetic pattern/geometry/expression/consciousness. The study of the energy and consciousness of the stars and the constellations is known as Astrology in modern times.
The Leo Constellation holds the Star Energy of the Elder Lion (Mbube Edingile in the African Tradition) — one of visionary leadership, a courageous strong heart, creative, loving, generous, strong-willed, confident and independent. These energies held by this constellation when directly projected and manifested into the Earth take the form of the Lion — the pure reflection/material manifestation of this Star Constellations Energy.
The Lion is also strongly associated with the Sun, and Credo Refers to the White Lions as the Children of the Sun God, Star Beasts who hold and transmit the Solar Logos/Vibration/Laws/Consciousness on Earth. Not just of Solaris — the Morning Star — but of the Great Central Sun — the Source of all Light and Life in this Universe. In many religious texts and native cultures Lions are regarded as protectors and keepers of sacred knowledge, as creators/guardians of the Earth and humanity, and as first children/creations of God. Jesus is referred to as the Lion of Judah, and Lions represent the King/Ruler/Keeper of Divine Balance and Harmony within all the kingdoms due to their position at the apex of the pyramid of life — they are the ultimate ‘predator’ and therefore rule the balance within the whole system. We have this Lion Gene/Energy/Consciousness within us — both the Lion’s position as the apex ‘predator’, and ability — and therefore responsibility — to lead and maintain balance in accordance with the Divine Laws of Nature; as well as their Lion-Heart and visionary creative capacity/power.
During the Lions Gate, this Divine Leonine Frequency is Amplified by the cosmic alignments which activate the Stargate through which the leonine frequencies are transmitted into Earth. According to Credo and the Great African Tradition – The Three Main Stars through which the Lion Frequency enters into Earth are Sirius (Star A), The middle Star in Orion’s Belt (Mbube — ‘Lion of the Dark’), and Regulus — the Heart Star of Leo. Credo describes how Sirius represents the ‘Eye’ of the Sky Lion, Mbube is the ‘soul’ of the Sky Lion and Regulus is the ‘heart’ of the Sky Lion. The Lions Gate is the ’time’ when the Sun aligns with (moves directly in line with/in front of) the Star Regulus in Leo, activating the Lions Heart Star Frequencies, and connecting and aligning with Sirius and Orion’s Belt in the East to activate the triangular cosmic creation gateway through which the Divine Leonine Energies and Consciousness entered into and continues to stream into Earth. Through this Alignment this divine star lion energy is amplified on Earth and our own dormant white lion DNA/Gene Key/consciousness/nature is activated within us once more, as we are all reborn as Christed Children of Sun and the Supreme One. This Lions Gate reminds us of our nature as divine children of God and as visionary creative beings who have the strength and courage, through our Lion Heart, to lead Humanity once more into a Golden Age.

When does the Lions Gate Actually Take Place?

Due to the shifting positions of the Zodiacs in the Sky and the procession of the Equinoxes, the Vernal Equinox sun rise is now taking place in between Pisces and Aquarius in the Northern hemisphere. This is where the notion of moving into the Age of Aquarius comes from. Here in the Southern Hemisphere, as the White Lions are returning to Earth, we are moving into the Age of Leo, offering a powerful reflection of the present rebirthing of the Golden Age, as the same energy that heralded in the rise of the advanced civilization in Egypt after the Ice Age and the construction of the Sphinx and Giza Temples in Northern Hemisphere, expresses itself in the South. This also means that the time and date of the Lions Gate has shifted over the ages — which explains the distortion around the exact dates for this cosmic alignment and why on the 8/8 which is supposedly the Lions Gate – the Sun is actually not even in the Leo Constellation but is positioned in between Leo and Cancer in the Sky.
What a beautiful reminder for everyone to please get outside and connect directly to the Stars! We have become so detached to what is actually taking place within and around us, and so deeply dependent on inherited traditions, systems and beliefs from certain lineages and ‘older’ cultures that we have forgotten our own personal capacity to connect with, communicate with and draw wisdom directly from the Source, one another, our surroundings, the Earth and the Stars. It is essential that we connect to what is actually presenting in our Now Reality, and allow ourselves to draw in this New Now Information, rather then through fear or a sense of lack within ourselves choosing to operate from and depend on an out dated/no longer relevant system of understanding. We can always benefit from observing and learning from what has been before, but our sacred gift and responsibility is to apply this wisdom in the now so that we can grow with it, evolve with it and bring in new/now understandings/perspectives.
I have used an awesome technology and phone app called Sky Map to take a virtual picture of the actual positions of the stars and cosmic planetary bodies at specific times and dates this Month. In the images attached you will see what will actually be happening in the Sky around the 8th of August, as well as the 22nd/23rd, showing how and when the Lions Gate Cosmic Alignment will actually be presenting itself.
The actual Lions Gate Alignment of the Sun with Regulus, Sirius and Orion takes place around the 22nd/23rd of August — which explains the powerful gateway energies that many have been feeling coming in towards the end of the month of August. Sandra Walter described it as feeling like we will be walking through a wall of light — and that is exactly what this Lions Gate is — a powerful stellar gateway and transmission of pure white gold energy straight from the Central Sun, toned through the Star Leonine Consciousness and Geometries of Creation. Credo says that in the Great African Tradition it is understood that when the Sun aligns with Regulus a king/kingdom dies and a new one is born. I feel personally that this years Lions Gate is marking the end of a significant cycle within our awakening on Earth as Divine Huemans, and will be initiating us — through it’s stellar frequency download/transmission — into a next level expansion and evolution as divine children, visionaries, leaders and co-creators of the Golden Age/Eden on Earth.
As we come together to honor this sacred gateway and initiation, I invite you to use this as an opportunity to go outside and connect directly with the Stars, The Earth and the Plant, Elemental and Animal Kingdom. Open up your heart to hear their story and message/guidance for you and humanity. Connect with your own inner Lion being and ask yourself how you can connect with and step more fully into your divine purpose and presence/expression in this Life, how you can open further to allow your own lion-heart to roar more loudly and guide you on your journey, and how you can nurture and create the sacred space for your own divine creativity and hearts visions to flow and manifest in your life and community.
This is our time to shine, to explore and share the truth, beauty, wisdom, strength and creativity of our radiant united heart.

Northern California Is Burning; What’s Next For That Area?

Activist Post – by Catherine J. Frompovich

Deborah Tavares of StopTheCrime.net appeared before the Sonoma County Board Supervisors meeting where she discussed the “Plan to burn up Northern California” during which she also predicted more “burnings” will occur.

There is nothing I can add to Deborah’s video except that either she knows what she’s talking about or she has a great sense of precognition.  

Deborah coins a new phrase, “climate refugees,” as a result of the planned fires.  Take careful note of the newspaper headlines she holds up; she’s not kidding about weaponized weather or year-round-fire-season.

California now is burning as I write this.  The largest fire in California’s recorded history is raging across the once-beautiful, forested Northern California.

Man accused of filling water cup with soda at fast food restaurant starts fight, gets Tased, cops say

Fox News

A Montana man who was accused of filling his water cup with soda at a fast food restaurant has been arrested and charged with multiple misdemeanors and a felony.

Missoula Police Public Information Officer Travis Welsh says police were called to the scene on Thursday around 2:30 pm after Daniel Stine started a fight with a restaurant employee.  

Daniel Stine was arrested after starting a fight with a restaurant employee who told him he could not fill his water cup with soda.The 48-year-old had allegedly tried to fill a water cup with soda at a restaurant and was confronted by an employee who told him he would have to pay for the soft drink, Welsh said to KGVO.

“When confronted by an employee who informed him that he had to pay for the cup of soda he refused and left out one of the entrances,” Welsh said, KGVO reported. “The employee followed him, told him that he was not welcome back then he turned and came back towards the employee and tried to kick that person before walking away again.”

Stine had fled the restaurant when police arrived, but officers spotted him entering another restaurant nearby and followed him into the restroom where he had gone to hide.

According to police officers, once authorities found Stine in the bathroom the man began to resist arrest and officers shocked him with a stun gun.

“The officers were able to make entry to the bathroom, however, when they did and confronted the man, rather than comply with their instructions he approached them in what appeared to be an aggressive manner,” Welsh said. “The officers attempted to take control of him physically and that’s when he began to resist and fight with the officers and had to be tased to comply to the officer’s instructions.”

Stine was arrested and booked with four misdemeanors including resisting arrest, criminal trespass and disorderly conduct. He was also charged with felony robbery for the incident and is being held on an additional $50,000 bond.

This comes two weeks after a brutal beat down happened in a McDonald’s when a woman tried to fill her water cup with soda.



This Gold Heist Reads Like a Plot from a Comic Book

Schiff Gold

OK, I’m not endorsing crime here. But I have to admit, I admire the creativity and work ethic some criminals put into their craft.  I always wonder what some of these people could make out of themselves if they would channel their talent into more socially constructive channels.

Take these guys from Australia. They pulled off one heck of a gold heist using a stolen sewage truck.   

Yup. You read that right. These guys jacked a sewage truck and used it to steal gold.

And this story reads like a plot from a comic book – if you look at it the right way.

So, how in the heck did our criminal masterminds pull this off? Well, they backed the stolen sewage truck up to a dam at the Kanowna Belle mine and filled it with gold-bearing concentrate.

The value of the gold has not been determined. The heist remains under investigation by detectives from the Kalgoorlie-based Gold Stealing Detection Unit.

“Gold Stealing Detection Unit.” See? Right there. That sounds like something from a comic book It’s a classic comic book name for a crime-fighting unit – like the Crime Crusaders Club from DC comics. Maybe they should send the Gold Stealing Detection Unit after the dastardly Academy of Crime!

Anway, investigators told the Australian Broadcast Company (henceforth referred to as ABC, not to be confused with its American counterpart) the thieves will need sophisticated smelting equipment to transform the concentrate — crushed rock which had been ground down into a sand-like substance — into gold bars.

Only a comic book criminal syndicate could pull something like this off, right?

Or maybe they just had some inside knowledge.

Local resident Doug Daws managed the Kalgoorlie Gold Refinery back in the 1980s. He told ABC the thieves have to have some knowledge of the gold mining industry.

You would have to think the scoundrels who have perpetrated this crime have had some thoughts, knowledge or believe they have some way of processing when people in the industry find it quite a difficult task.”

Scoundrels. Tell me you can’t see Daws’ quote in a thought balloon.

Now again, I’m not endorsing theft. But you have to admit, these dudes were ballsy. It’s like comic book villains. You know you’re supposed to hate them, but sometimes they are so darn cool!

In this episode, the anti-heroes stole a giant bright blue waste truck, pulled up, loaded it with gold and just drove off. Like the ABC story points out, “The Kanowna Belle thieves were not driving a typical getaway car, given the bright blue exterior and Suez markings hardly making the truck low-profile.”

But the Gold Stealing Detection Unit still hasn’t managed to find the truck. Maybe they should call in assistance from the Guardians of the Universe.

Anyhow, don’t you kind of wonder how these scoundrels hatched their plot? As the ABC headline asks, was it a carefully conceived plan drawing on skills honed over years of thievery? Or were these guys just drinking beers one night when one of them said, “You know what we need? Some gold!”

The beer scenario is kind of funny.  I like the idea of two drunks coming up with a plan to steal gold using a sewage truck and then looking at each other in dumb amazement when it works. But this is a comic book, not a comedy. So, I have to imagine it was a well-organized ring called the Consortium of Doom. The muscled member spent weeks in their underground hideout drawing up detailed plans. At some point, the Gold Stealing Detection Unit will track down the remote headquarters, but they will find it empty except for discarded blueprints of the dam, sketches of the getaway route and a photo of the head of the Gold Stealing Detection Unit with a target over his face.

To be continued…

Well, however it went down, it shows the lengths people will go to in order to get gold. As Daws noted:

Gold has an allure that transcends all classes of society. Everyone wants a piece … even if it doesn’t belong to them.”


Censorship of Alex Jones won’t stop with Alex Jones: Natural medicine, cannabis and health freedom channels are already being blacklisted

Posted: 10 Aug 2018 04:56 AM PDT

censorshipThe founder and president of a major media watchdog group says that the recent purging of Alex Jones and InfoWarsfrom the social media gamut is far worse than just a “slippery slope” towards authoritarian censorship and the silencing of all voices that dare to speak out against the status quo.

In a recent statement picked up by Breitbart.com, Brent Bozell of the Media Research Center declared the move a “dangerous cliff,” emphasizing that YouTube, Apple, Facebook, Spotify, and many others have been co-opted into capitulating to the fascistic demands of fake news outlets like CNN.

Even though he doesn’t personally support Alex Jones, nor does he believe him to be a true conservative, Bozell says that it’s absolutely wrong for distributors of online content to blanket-ban him from their platforms. These flagrant censorship tactics, he says, highlight a “disturbing trend” towards totalitarianism and the complete elimination of free speech.

“Social media sites are supposedly neutral platforms, but they are increasingly becoming opportunities for the left and major media to censor any content that they don’t like,” Bozell says, noting that people who oppose murdering unborn babies, support the Second Amendment, or otherwise reject the liberal agenda are increasingly being “shadow banned” from social media.

“Conservatives are increasingly concerned that InfoWars is not the end point for those who want to ban speech. It’s just the beginning. We are rapidly approaching a point where censorship and opposing voices is the norm. That’s dangerous.”

Mother Nature’s micronutrient secret: Organic Broccoli Sprout Capsules now available, delivering 280mg of high-density nutrition, including the extraordinary “sulforaphane” and “glucosinolate” nutrients found only in cruciferous healing foods. Every lot laboratory tested. See availability here.

Censorship is one of the ways that liberals shut down arguments they can’t win. Many of them can’t even have civil conversations about their beliefs because they get immediately triggered whenever others oppose them. To keep up with the latest news on liberal censorship, visit Censorship.news.

Liberals have redefined words like “harassment,” “assault,” and “violence” to include all viewpoints with which they disagree

In trying to explain the rationale behind the removal of Jones from their platforms, the social media cabal is claiming that his content contained “dehumanizing language,” and often targeted “people who are transgender, Muslims, and immigrants, which violates our hate speech policies.”

But this allegation hardly holds water, seeing as how all sorts of leftist hate speech that targets white people, Christians, and conservatives continues to pollute the social media world unabated. It’s a hypocritical double standard that gives the Left a free pass to spew as much hatred and vitriol as it wants in the name of “free speech,” while condemning all conservative viewpoints as “hate speech.”

The Left has even redefined the English language to fit its contorted agenda, claiming that right-wing beliefs and speech represent “harassment” or even “assault.” By reclassifying everything that upsets liberals as “violence,” for instance, the Left is trying to implement an Orwellian police state in which only leftist-approved viewpoints are allowed.

None of it is constitutional, of course. Depriving non-liberal voices from engaging in free speech is an absolute violation of the Bill of Rights, as it completely sidesteps due process. In this leftist paradigm, independent voices like Alex Jones who are falsely accused of “hate speech” are afforded no legal remedies with which to defend themselves as they’re forcibly silenced by the thought police.

“You’re banned without explanation … you cannot face your accusers … you cannot present evidence in your defense … and no evidence even needs to be cited against you,” warns Mike Adams, the Health Ranger.

Be sure to watch his video, “The censorship racket EXPLAINED,” at REAL.video. Adams explains how the blacklisting of Jones is just the beginning, warning that many others who educate about natural medicine, the health benefits of cannabis, and more also face potential censorship in the future.

“You can be de-platformed, censored, smeared, slandered and have your entire reputation and business utterly destroyed based entirely on rumors and lies backed up by extreme censorship to silence your dissent.”

Gruesome discovery follows SWAT raid on New Mexico compound where 16 people lived in buried RV, truck


AMALIA, N.M. – Tiny pairs of pants, broken-down bikes with training wheels and discarded children’s shoes haphazardly scattered among the homemade-brick walls and a half-buried RV hint at the tragedy and mystery unfolding in this remote community.

Here, down a dirt road scratched through the sagebrush, investigators are trying to piece together why a group of heavily armed Muslims took up residence on property they didn’t own and built a compound from wooden pallets, clear plastic tarps and dirt-filled tires. Investigators also are trying to understand the death of a 3-year-old child, whose body was found buried on the site about four hours south of Denver.  

And they’re trying to unravel whether the group had sinister plans after one of the children told authorities he was taught how to fire a rifle in preparation for a school shooting.

All the while, a property owner who says he repeatedly reported the group to authorities is struggling with the guilt that maybe he could have done more – and anger that police didn’t.

“That’s what’s hard, this kid, this innocent child, is now dead,” said Jason Badger, who owns the land where the group illegally built its compound. “Me and my wife hope we did everything we thought we could.”

Police have arrested five adults and taken 11 children into protective custody following the discovery of a buried child’s body in the aftermath of an Aug. 4 SWAT raid on the rural property just a stone’s throw from the Colorado border. The 11 kids were in various states of dehydration and emaciation, authorities said.

Police said they intervened after intercepting a message from one of the people in the compound begging for help.

All of the adults face child-abuse charges, and one of the men is also being detained on a December kidnapping warrant from Georgia. He’s accused of spiriting his chronically sick son, Abdul-Ghani Wahhaj, across state lines without access to adequate health care. The boy’s body was discovered on the property during a raid by SWAT officers last week. The cause of death has not yet been released.

According to investigators and neighbors, the group bought a piece of property in the Costilla Meadows sometime last year and moved onto it in December. The problem: Due to the snow and a misunderstanding of the boundary markers, the group mistakenly set up on Badger’s land, instead of the adjacent 10-acre parcel they owned.

Badger said he discovered them on his land about two weeks after they moved in. Some were living in tents, while others were living in a small moving truck fitted with bunk beds, authorities said. Badger said he tried to work with the two men, Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Lucas Morton, to resolve the property problem by simply flip-flopping their ownership. While the two pieces of property are virtually identical, Badger said the group had already begun building up their compound to shelter from the winter’s cold.

“If I had kicked them off the property, those kids would have literally being living in the dirt,” Badger said.

The group appeared ill-equipped to handle the December cold, although it’s unclear where they came from initially. Wahhaj’s family lives in New York City, and the mother of his son lives in Georgia. But in Amalia, about 8,000 feet above sea level, summertime temperatures can easily hit 90 degrees, and below-zero temperatures are common in the winter. The property has no electricity or natural gas-service, and the large pile of propane tanks suggests the group tried to stay warm with portable heaters.

Several collapsed tents still sit on the site, weighed down by discarded books and clothing. Authorities say the group was living in a half-buried RV and the moving truck. There is no running water on the site, although there are several large water containers, and investigators say the group also appeared to be catching rainwater to drink.

Shortly after arriving in December, Morton sought to buy an RV from Paul Jones, pastor of the First Baptist Church of Costilla County, in nearby Mesita, Colorado. Jones, who’s known as Preacher Paul, said Morton decided the RV was either too big or too expensive but paid cash for some double-paned windows and old solar panels.

“Being a pastor, I invited him to church, but he said he was Muslim and wasn’t interested,” Jones said. “We never saw any of the children.”

All five of the adults from the compound are black, and the southern Colorado-northern New Mexico area is predominately white. That meant Morton and Wahhaj stuck out when they stopped in at the Costilla Gas & Grocery, the closest store, about as much as the suit-wearing FBI agents did when they came by in May, residents said. At the time, Wahhaj was wanted on the kidnapping warrant, but FBI agents told local law enforcement they lacked evidence to intervene at that time.

People who move to the area often are trying to escape something – the law, the military or a broken relationship, said Mary Helen Trujillo, who owns Garcia Liquors on the Colorado side of the border. Here, people tend to keep to themselves, although neighbors often lend a helping hand when asked. That’s how Trujillo met Morton, who she said came in with a neighbor looking for an RV. Trujillo directed them to Preacher Paul.

Like many other area residents, Trujillo said she never saw the kids or the women. Although the Rio Costilla Elementary School is near the town’s central crossroads, no one remembers the kids attending. Neighbors say they were also unaware three adult women lived on the site or that so many kids lived there.

“I never want to see the ugly in people, and when I found out about this, my god, it’s so ugly,” Trujillo said.

Badger said he found the men easy to deal with, at least initially. They even agreed to pay to swap the land title with him so they could just stay on the site, he said. But after months of wrangling, Sirahhj said he couldn’t pay the small title fee.

The 10-acre lot is worth less than $8,000, largely because there’s no services or infrastructure. Some of the other houses scattered across the field appear to have outhouses, but there’s no trash pickup or electrical power.

“Whenever I would go up there and talk to Lucas, he pretty much met me at the road every time. I never saw the living conditions,” Badger said. “I never intruded on his privacy. I respected his privacy.”

Over time, Badger grew frustrated the group wasn’t following through on its promise to fix the paperwork.

“At that point in time, I said you have to go. And they just didn’t leave,” Badger said.

It was about that time Badger says he heard rumors some law enforcement agency was spying on the compound. His curiosity piqued, a quick bit of Googling revealed Sirahhj’s outstanding kidnapping warrant and the increasingly anguished Facebook posts by the child’s mother. Wahhaj’s father is Imam Siraj Wahhaj, a prominent Muslim cleric from the Masjid At Taqwa, a well-known mosque in Brooklyn.

Badger said he alerted local law enforcement and authorities in Georgia who had issued the arrest warrant for Wahhaj. That was in May, he said, and nothing happened – even after he signed a consent form giving police permission to search what was, after all, his property.

Nothing apparently came of that, although that’s around the same time a few people remember FBI agents briefly visiting the town.

Everything changed a week ago: The Taos County Sheriff’s Office obtained an intercepted message sent by someone in the compound begging for food and water, and that was enough information to act, Sheriff Jerry Hogrefe said.

“It had to be a search warrant and a tactical approach for our own safety because we had learned the occupants were most likely heavily armed and considered extremist of the Muslim belief,” Hogrefe said in a statement. “We also knew from the layout of the compound they would have an advantage if we didn’t deploy tactfully and quickly.”

No one was hurt in the raid. The children, ranging in age from 1 to 15, were placed into the custody of the New Mexico Children Youth and Families Department, the sheriff said. In addition to Siraj Ibn Wahhaj and Morton, also arrested were Jany Leveille, 35, Hujrah Wahhaj, 38, and Subhannah Wahhaj, 35, according to court records. Hujrah and Subhannah Wahhaj are Siraj Ibn Wahhaj’s sisters.

Wahhaj’s father, Imam Siraj Wahhaj, said in a Facebook broadcast on Thursday evening that he was the one who turned over the the message over to authorities, giving them the exact location of the compound via delivery instructions for a food shipment. The elder Wahhaj rejected the suggestion that either he or his son hold extremist beliefs.

“We just want the truth,” he said in the Facebook broadcast. “He may be my son, they may be my daughters, but we just want the truth.”

Prosecutors so far have  persuaded the judge hearing the cases to keep the five adults locked up, saying in a court filing that … “the defendant transported children across state lines for the purpose of the children receiving advanced weapons training to commit future acts of violence. Should the defendant be released from custody he poses a great danger to the children found on the property as well as a threat to the community as a whole due to the presence of firearms and his intent to use these firearms in a violent and illegal manner.”

While the group is detained, Badger has been escorting journalists to the site, which investigators have released back to him. Today, a heavy stench of urine and old trash hangs over the compound. There’s no apparent toilet on site. Several Qurans were left out, along with ammunition boxes. The sheriff’s office said Wahhaj was armed with an AR-15 rifle, four pistols and extra ammunition when he was “taken down” by the SWAT team.

Badger is now expecting to pay tens of thousands of dollars worth of cleanup costs.

The group built adobe walls, strengthened by glass bottles and cans, and embedded the tops with broken glass. A curtain wall of dirt-filled tires blocks easy access to the compound’s front, and the rest of it is pockmarked with ditches and holes. Stacked wooden pallets lead down to the tarp-covered RV, which is filled with garbage, clothing and household goods. There was no obvious food supply, although hammers and power saws are scattered around.

Authorities have not yet responded to Badger’s complaints that he was ignored.

“I tried to bring water … and he said he couldn’t take it due to religious beliefs,” Badger said of the men. “It just sucks. It’s hard to swallow.”

Adult members of the group are due back in court next week for a status hearing, according to court records. They remain jailed at the Taos County Jail in Taos. Citing their status as juveniles, authorities have not released any additional information about the location or health of the 11 children. Imam Siraj Wahhaj said he soon hopes to travel to New Mexico to gain custody of the children, some of whom are his grandchildren.



‘Dystopian screenplay’? Twitter considers ‘off-platform behavior’ when banning hate speech


Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said that the company reviews real world activity when dealing with accounts of racists and hate-mongers. Some users were chilled by the prospect of being monitored offline, while others plain confused.

“We look at off-platform behavior as well. At things that aren’t just happening on Twitter, but happening on other platforms or in the real world,” Dorsey told political commentator and TV host Sean Hannity on his radio show on Wednesday.  

Some users caught an Orwellian vibe to the policy and suggested it’s unacceptable for a social media platform to poke its nose in what they’re doing when not logged on.

Michael Tracey


“Jack” disclosed on Hannity today that Twitter takes into account “off-platform behavior” in its moderation decisions. So something you do IRL that has no necessary connection to Twitter can be used as justification for a Twitter ban. I’m writing a dystopian screenplay about this

IT Guy@ITGuy1959

“Harvey noted that Twitter also plans to evaluate whether the company needs to better police “off-platform behavior.”

Twitter want to become your social media platform & your mom. What could possibly go wrong?

All the social media companies are stuck in a rut and losing daily active users hand over fist. This will only accelerate that trend.

Charlie Warzel


source just sent me internal email from Twitter Trust & Safety head Del Harvey clarifying company policy on Alex Jones to staff. Says among other things that many of his worst remarks occurred before Twitter’s new harassment policies in place. If he does it now wld be penalized

Twitter’s chief further explained that, when dealing with hate speech reports, the company’s moderators also review the users’ relevant past activities on Twitter and consider the “cultural context” of the conversation.

“We make sure all of our folks understand the cultural context of something that’s said. Because some cultural contexts enable some speech, and other cultural contexts don’t,” Dorsey stressed. He also admitted that Twitter was “terrible” at communicating its own guidelines to the public, and promised to change that. Some users agree Twitter’s own terms could use some clarity.

It’s like a Newspeak Pentecost over at Twitter. ‘Conversational Health.’ ‘Off-platform behavior.’ It’s like they’re speaking in creepy silicon tongues!

Ultimately, it’s up to the user to deal with offensive posts appearing in their timeline, Dorsey told Hannity – assuming it gets through Twitter’s “off-platform” filtering. “People should decide who they follow and who they want to hear from. That’s a fairly mechanical action – hitting the ‘follow’ button,” he said.

Dorsey made his comments after the company refused to fall in line with Facebook, YouTube, Apple, and Spotify who all banned controversial right-wing radio talk show host Alex Jones and his channel Infowars, citing their rules on hate speech and harassment.

In a series of tweets, Dorsey explained that Twitter won’t suspend Jones’ account because he didn’t violate the company’s policies, and highlighted the importance of the media fact-checking and debunking misinformation.

The White House • August 9, 2018

The Day Ahead

  • President Donald J. Trump is hosting a roundtable discussion with governors on prison reform and the FIRST STEP Act before Congress.
  • Vice President Mike Pence is speaking about the President’s planned Space Force at the Pentagon.

The startling facts about America’s prison system

Following successful bipartisan passage of the FIRST STEP Act in the House of Representatives, President Trump is hosting a roundtable with a number of America’s governors today to discuss implementing prison reform in their states.

President Trump supports efforts to reduce recidivism—the return of former inmates to prison—as a way to make America’s streets safer. The Administration has worked closely with Congress to find a solution that reduces crime, enhances public safety, and increases opportunity for those who have earned a second chance.

“The facts about America’s prison system are startling,” Senior Advisor Jared Kushner wrote in The Wall Street Journal in April. “The U.S. has 4% of the world’s population, but roughly 25% of the world’s prisoners. . . . Of the 650,000 people who leave prison every year, two-thirds will commit a new crime within three years.”

The bottom line, says Kushner: “President Trump promised to fight for the forgotten men and women of this country—and that includes those in prison.”

The starting facts about America’s prison system.

Taking action: President Trump’s principles for reforming our prisons

Vice President Pence on the U.S. Space Force

In keeping with President Trump’s promise to rebuild American strength and deterrence, the Administration is moving ahead to fulfill the President’s plan to establish a U.S. Space Force as part of our nation’s Military. 

Vice President Pence, who chairs the National Space Council—which President Trump revived after a 24-year hiatus—is addressing defense leaders at the Pentagon today about the new Force. His effort builds on the President’s work to reinstate America as a leader in space.

“In America, we understand that a nation is only living as long as it is striving,” President Trump said in his Inaugural Address. Making America a pioneer in space once again brings us closer to that vision.

In space, America will once again reach for the Moon—and beyond.

Comcast breach exposes 26.5m customers’ Social Security Numbers and partial addresses

Boing Boing – by Cory Doctorow

Comcast Xfininty’s login page had an easily found bug that allowed anyone to gain access to the Social Security Numbers and partial home addresses of over 26.5 million customers.

Comcast spokesapologist David McGuire says the company patched the bug quickly after being notified of its existence by security researcher Ryan Stevenson, and added that the company “take[s] our customers’ security very seriously,” adding that the company didn’t think anyone had exploited the bug.

I’m going to make a guess here: the bug was the result of one of the many mergers and acquisitions that has allowed Comcast to grow to be the country’s largest and most hated cable operator, as they put profits and growth ahead of integration and security. It’s just a guess, but it’s an educated one. Merging IT systems is one of the most notoriously tricky and insecure things a corporation can do.

This vulnerability was particularly easy to exploit — and use to target someone. It’s simple to obtain someone’s IP address (or “Internet Protocol”), a string of numbers that links your internet activity to the Wi-Fi network you’re using. Web administrators can see the IP addresses of everyone who visits their website. Many forums also disclose users’ IP addresses, along with their usernames. A malicious actor can also send someone a link designed specifically to obtain a target’s IP address.

While an IP address alone is not sensitive information, paired with the knowledge of someone’s internet service provider, it can help a bad actor confirm their target’s specific location. And often, it’s fairly easy to figure out someone’s internet service provider, or ISP, because an area is typically limited to one or two high-speed internet options, thanks to the consolidation of internet companies.

In the second vulnerability that Stevenson discovered, a sign-up page through the website for Comcast’s Authorized Dealers (sales agents stationed at non-Comcast retail locations) revealed the last four digits of customers’ Social Security numbers. Armed with just a customer’s billing address, a hacker could brute-force (in other words, repeatedly try random four-digit combinations until the correct combination is guessed) the last four digits of a customer’s Social Security number. Because the login page did not limit the number of attempts, hackers could use a program that runs until the correct Social Security number is inputted into the form.

The war to destroy Alex Jones, Part 3

The war to destroy Alex Jones, Part Three
By Jon Rappoport
When several big-tech companies remove a person from their platforms in a 12-hour period, which is what happened to Alex Jones, you need to ask:
Where are the specific violations Jones is charged with?
Where is the bill of particulars against him?
Where is the “hate speech” he is accused of spewing to his audience?
What definition (if any) of hate speech is being used as a measuring stick?
Asking those questions, you come up very short on answers.
Jones is being made into a SYMBOL of a hater by social media and the mainstream press—and when THAT is the objective, the whole idea is to avoid specifics and just smear the target with a very broad and general brush.
“Hate speech” is replacing the 1st Amendment as a standard of judgment. The question now is: did you express hate toward someone? Rather than: did you commit slander or libel?
Did you utter something that could offend and might disturb a victim or victim-group? Yes? YOU’RE BANNED. CENSORED. Of course, social media giants decide what constitutes hate and who is designated a victim-group with “protected status.”
The term “hate speech” is very elastic. Its definition can be changed on a moment’s notice.
Don’t like someone?
Upset at their actual ideas?
Disturbed at their success?
Embroil them in charges of being a hater and expressing hatred toward victims. Ban and censor them from online platforms based on that accusation. Ignore millions of their words—instead, invoke a few outbursts they committed over the years.
And finally, make the conversation all about whether the accused—in this case, Jones—is good or not, is honest or not, is caring or not, is worthy or not—AS IF THE ANSWERS TO THOSE QUESTIONS WOULD DECIDE WHETHER BANNING JONES FROM ONLNE PLATFORMS WAS A CORRECT ACTION.
This is the ultimate diversion and distraction, for increasing numbers of the dumbed-down public.
And toss the brain-challenged a bone—permission to HATE THE HATER.
“You see, in this case, it’s OK to hate, because the target is a hater. So go to it, express all that bottled-up emotion. Have a field day.”
“With every molecule of hate you express, you change the meaning of the Bill of Rights and the 1st Amendment. And this is exactly what we need: a new society based on less freedom and more goodness.”
Less freedom, more goodness.
If you buy that package, I have condos for sale on the far side of the moon.


Retired Air Force Nighthawks Conduct Secret Missions Over Area 51

Retired Air Force Nighthawks Conduct Secret Missions Over Area 51
Paul Seaburn August 12, 2018

Whenever something strange appears in the airspace over and around Area 51, it’s a cause for questioning, possible concern, potential alarm and occasional panic. What does one make of the appearance of two long-retired F-117 Nighthawk stealth jets, with their distinctive triangular shapes, making both day and night flights, including refueling, over the Nevada desert? Is the military merely exercising them as part of a regular maintenance schedule it claims it puts all old aircraft stored on the base through? Why is it keeping old planes in mission-ready condition? Air shows? Gulf War re-enactments? Tom Cruise movies? Something else?

On July 26, 2018, Youtube user “pdgls” uploaded a video of two F-117 flying from Tonopah Test Range, the first testing grounds for the Lockheed F-117A Nighthawks in 1981 and the major operations center for the top secret aircrafts until it became the major “retirement” storage center for them starting in 2008. The video shows the jets – call signs Night (or Knight) 17 and 19. After what seem to be normal maneuvers. David Cenciotti at the Aviationist blog notes that Night 17 returns to the base while Night 19 changes its callsign to Dagger 17, making some long, low approaches before finally landing.

The Aviationist and other aviation and military blogs reporting on the sighting of the F-117s all seem to agree that the purpose of their flights is a mystery. A previous sighting in 2017 showed a suspicious hump behind the cockpit which some suspected was equipment to convert the jet to an autonomous pilot-less drone. Another theory is they’re testing new stealth gear or stealth sensors for current aircraft. That seems strange – why not test it on the aircraft it’s designed for? A more sinister theory is that the F-117s are pretending to be enemy aircraft to test simulators or perhaps even real response systems, although no other planes were seen in this particular operation.

In our continuing quests to find alien ships or super-secret futuristic military aircraft at Area 51, are we ignoring what’s actually happening there? Is it a good sign or a bad sign that 40-year-old jets are still being maintained and tested there? Are these operations merely a smokescreen? If so, what are they hiding – new technology or the fact that we have no new technology?
Is this the real reason why we’re getting a Space Force?

UFO Expert Max Spiers Had His Laptop ‘Wiped’ By Gov’t After His Death

UFO Expert Max Spiers Had His Laptop ‘Wiped’ By Gov’t After His Death

August 12, 2018 Sean Adl-Tabatabai

UFO researcher Max Spiers had his laptop and cell phone wiped by the Polish government shortly after his death, according to British authorities. 
Max Spiers was found dead under suspicious circumstances in 2016, before he was due to give a talk about who really controls the world.

The 39-year-old father had texted his mother hours before his death to warn, “If anything happens to me, investigate.”
Dailymail.co.uk reports: Today a pre-inquest review at Guildhall in Sandwich, Kent, heard how the contents of his SIM card were also of particular interest.
Before he died Mr Spiers messaged his mother, Vanessa Bates, saying: ‘You’re boy’s in trouble, if anything happens to me, investigate.’
An initial inquest opened in December 2016 when the court heard he vomited two litres of black blood, but the inquest was adjourned last year.
The father of two allegedly made many ‘enemies’ in his investigations. His inquest will now be held over four days from January 7, 2019.

Authorities in Poland, where Mr Spiers was attending a conference, initially concluded the sudden death was due to natural causes.
At the pre-inquest review today at the Guildhall in Sandwich, Kent, the court heard the barrister for Max’s mother, Adam Taylor, call for members of the Polish emergency services to appear as witnesses at the inquest.
Sections from a 700-page docket of statements and evidence assembled will be translated from Polish for next year’s inquest.
Possible evidence over whether disciplinary proceedings were brought against police officers in Poland over Mr Spiers’s death should also be heard at the inquest, the court heard.
Mr Taylor said that Mr Spiers’s laptop was wiped but that it was not empty at the time of his death.
He confirmed analysis of a laptop and a mobile phone that belonged to him should also be presented at the inquest.
‘The way in which they were returned and what was done to them is clearly one of the big mysteries,’ he said. ‘The family has no knowledge whatsoever of what the results of that analysis were.
‘The issue is the Sim card and what was on it. Without sight of the report the family has no answer to these questions.’
There were also a ‘number of discrepancies’ in emergency services accounts about Max’s death, the court heard.
Monika Duvall, a friend who Mr Bates had reportedly been living with, was also asked to attend the inquest.
Speaking afterwards, Vanessa expressed concerns about being able to bring the Polish witnesses to the inquest.
‘Today felt very positive. It’s just over two years now. I did not expect him to go to Poland and not come back.
‘We’ve got hundreds of pages we are working our way through which are all in Polish. It’s been difficult but gradually we’ve worked our way through. There certainly was some mention of that from the Polish side.
‘We’ve still got stuff that are not translated and I think when we get to the inquest we will know more about whether police procedures were or were not followed. He should be here. He was very fit and healthy when I said goodbye to him.
‘Everything that we have in terms of health records before he went were that he was in great health. This was an enormous blow. I miss him dreadfully.’
After Mr Spiers’s body was repatriated to the UK, doctors at a Margate hospital were unable to determine the cause of his death.
Kent Police then launched a joint investigation with Polish police into the conspiracy theorist’s death.
At an inquest opening in Canterbury in December 2016, the court heard how the 39-year-old had been visiting Poland to speak at a conference after holidaying with a friend in Cyprus.
Shortly before his death, Mr Spiers was said to have been probing into the lives of well-known figures in politics, business and entertainment. At the time his mum Vanessa said she feared the worst.
‘I think Max had been digging in some dark places and somebody wanted him dead.’
She is hopeful the investigation will shed light on the mysterious death.
‘It’s been a long time coming, but I’m just relieved that at last something is happening and there is a proper investigation and inquest,’ she added.
Her theory was shared by many online, with other conspiracy theorists, UFO investigators and bloggers calling the circumstances of Mr Spiers’ death suspicious.
At the time, Coroner Alan Blunsdon told the court he was still awaiting a report from Polish authorities, adding that the workload of Kent Police may delay forensic analysis of Mr Spiers’ phone and computer.
Coroner Christopher Sutton Mattocks set the date of January 7 for the four-day inquest, which will be heard at the Archbishops Palace in Maidstone.
He said: ‘It is extremely important that when we start everybody is completely ready for this and we have all the information available.’

Italy Bans Mandatory Vaccinations For School Children

Italy Bans Mandatory Vaccinations For School Children

August 12, 2018 Baxter Dmitry

A powerful wave of freedom has been generated in Italy after millions of people took part in marches across the country demanding the government roll back a brutal new mandatory vaccination law. Now the government has backed down and listened to the will of the people.
Italy was set to be at forefront of a vaccination experiment conducted by Big Pharma and their government, corrupted with Pharma dollars. However after months of struggle, the people have spoken, and Italy has banned ten mandatory vaccinations of school children.

The new government, elected on a platform of repealing the mandatory vaccination law, claims the 10 vaccinations in question are “useless and often dangerous“, and cites the fact that mandatory vaccinations violate a citizen’s constitutional right to choose their own healthcare.
This week the upper house of Italy’s parliament passed a government supported amendment removing “the legal obligation to vaccinate children against ten diseases before they can be enrolled for state schools.
The amendment was passed 148 to 110 votes and will now be sent to the lower house the Chamber of Deputies for approval after the summer break.
Nine regional administrations have announced plans to appeal the amendment to the constitutional court and will consider implementing their own regional laws to reinstate compulsory vaccination, according to Pharmaceutical Technology.
The decision came after millions of Italians rose up against a government determined to take away the rights of the individual by enacting brutal mandatory vaccination laws. The streets of major cities throughout the country were heaving and mainstream media continued to suppress the scale of events.

For over a month Italians were protesting in every major city against the law that would have made 53 doses of vaccines mandatory for all children. Unvaccinated children would not be allowed to attend school and may be removed from their parents.
In 2014 in Washington, during the visit of Lorenzin (Italian Health Minister), Italy was chosen to be the world leader of vaccine strategy,” a speaker at the Rome protest explained. “The problem is not the vaccines per se, the problem is that Glaxo is inside our Ministry!
Italy is at the forefront of a vaccination experiment conducted by an Italian government corrupted by Big Pharma dollars. By allowing pharmaceutical companies to create new laws and force the full range of their products on the whole population against their consent, the Italian government was betraying its people.

The protesters in Italy represent all working class people united, mobilized, and resisting the greed of the ruling class and corporate elites. By actively supporting the mandatory vaccination law, the mainstream media are violently fighting against the people and protecting the interests of the ruling class.
Senator Bartolomeo Pepe said the Italian people are rising up because the government was taking away their rights. The sovereignty of the individual is being eroded in favor of corporations. Greed has surpassed dignity.
What we are fighting for now is not just for vaccines, what is at stake is the freedom of the people, because people are put aside from the interests of multinational corporations such as the pharmaceuticals, like in this case, or oil, or banks. Soon we will have to fight on many fronts,” Pepe said.
However as the government and mainstream media continue to suppress this important movement’s progress, the people continue to rise up, determined to resist the worst medical fraud in history.
Gabriele Milani, the father of a vaccine injured child, also addressed the heaving crowd, warning doctors against tolerating the dictatorial practices of Big Pharma. Doctors may have their pockets lined by pharmaceutical companies today, but tomorrow they too will lose their freedom.
I am addressing the medical professionals too, who seem to be ignoring that today we are the pioneers of this battle that will concern them eventually. Because they too will lose their freedom of thought, because they too will not be able to choose what therapies to recommend or advise against. Every one of us is a unique individual, with his unique genetic heritage, so the same drug cannot be mandated to all.”
Western mainstream media continues to suppress information regarding the scale and intensity of the revolution taking place on Italian streets, and refuses to stand up for the people who are having their constitutional rights eroded by a government corrupted by Big Pharma dollars.
A mandate is unconstitutional, and this decree-law is unconstitutional because there is no emergency, it is unconstitutional because it prohibits access to education, it is unconstitutional because it violates the body integrity ratified by the European Convention of Human Rights, so we will appeal to the European Court of Justice,” a speaker at the event said.
While the world is distracted by the G20 and the threat of geopolitical conflict, the elites are trying to take away people’s rights.
But a powerful wave of freedom was generated by the first Rome march. City marches took place everywhere across the country and continued to gain momentum until the Italian government backed down and listened to the will of the people.
The coming together of all these people has proven that unity is a powerful force that the elite cannot ignore. Due to the people’s pressure, the government has announced revisions to the law, but there are still fears Big Pharma may find a way to introduce mandatory vaccinations.
The fight is not over yet. We all have to unite to make sure that this mandatory vaccination law never passes in Italy, and that no other country will dare to allow Big Pharma into their state institutions.

Discovery Channel Explorer Finds ‘Ancient Alien Ship’ Beneath Bermuda Triangle, Using Maps Made by NASA

by Ivan 

Darrell Miklos, an explorer for the Discovery Channel and his team believe they have discovered a USO (unidentified submerged object), which may just be an ancient alien spaceship, in the Bermuda Triangle close to the Bahamas. 
He spotted the large obtrusions while exploring the area in a submersible looking for shipwrecks. ‘I was trying to identify shipwreck material based on one of the anomaly readings on Gordon’s charts when I noticed something that stuck out, that shocked me,’ said Miklos speaking in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.co.
According to the latest statements from a Discovery Channel Explorer Hunter, evidence of downed alien ship may have just been found, as a team of explorers was investigating shipwrecks beneath the Bermuda Triangle.
Using maps created by famed NASA Astronaut Gordon Cooper, explorer Darrel Miklos has made an astonishing ‘unexplained’ discovery deep beneath the so-called Bermuda Triangle.
The Bermuda Triangle, also known as the “Devil’s Triangle,” the Bermuda Triangle consists of a region in the western part of the North Atlantic Ocean and is defined by points in Bermuda, Florida and Puerto Rico. It stretches across less than a thousand miles on any one side. The triangle does not exist according to the US Navy and the name is not recognized by the US Board on Geographic Names. This mysterious body of water is filled with incredible stories and rumors that if not supernatural or otherworldly.
Miklos’ discoveries have featured in over two seasons of hit series Cooper’s Treasure by the Discovery Channel.

Thanks to maps put together in the 1960’s by famed NASA astronaut Gordon Cooper through which more than 100 magnetic anomalies have been identified in the Caribbean alone, Miklos set out to explore an ‘undisclosed’ location the Bahamas in order to investigate what he believed was an ancient shipwreck on the ocean floor.
The mysterious object is unlike anything Miklos had ever seen.
However, instead of discovering a shipwreck at the undisclosed location, he discovered a bizarre structure like nothing he’d ever seen.
The massive submerged object (USO) has fifteen, 300ft-long obtrusions jutting from its side.
The weird object was spotted resting on the ocean floor as the team was filming episode seven of Cooper’s Treasure.  Miklos said to Daily Mail how he and his team want to bring the ‘alien spaceship’ to the surface.
He told the Daily Mail: “We were doing a scene where I was sitting in a two-man submersible.”
“We were out in the Bahamas and we were on an English shipwreck trail, somehow related to Sir Francis Drake. I was trying to identify shipwreck material based on one of the anomaly readings on Gordon’s charts when I noticed something that stuck out, that shocked me.”

Miklos and his team believe they may just have found an ancient alien ship.
“It was a formation unlike anything I’ve ever seen related to shipwreck material, it was too big for that. It was also something that was completely different from anything that I’ve seen that was made by nature.”
“It’s almost like there are five arms coming out of a steep wall cliff and each one of these is the size of a gun on a battleship. They’re enormous and then there’s five over here and five over there, 15 in total. There are identical formations in three different areas and they don’t look nature made, they don’t look man-made, certainly nothing I’ve ever seen based on my experience and I have years of experience at doing this, we’ve identified multiple different types of shipwreck material, this doesn’t match or look anything like that.”

Located 300 feet below the Bermuda Triangle, the explorer and his team say they’ve also discovered unexplained formations around the main object, all of which are covered in thick corals, meaning that the object is most likely hundreds if not thousands of years old.
These mystery shapes score the top of the massive central mound. Each of these lines is the width of a family home, reports the Daily Mail. 
According to many people, the Bermuda triangle is one of the largest anomalous zones on planet Earth, and while most people think the Bermuda triangle is only located on the water, only a few people know that its anomalous region extends hundreds of kilometers inland.
Even Astronauts, Russian Cosmonauts, and pilots from around the world have spoken about the Bermuda Triangle saying to have seen flashes of light when flying over the area, moments in which, according to many, electronic flight instruments appear to malfunction.
Miklos says that after having made the mind-bending discovery beneath the Bermuda triangle, he decided to dig further into Cooper’s files and find new evidence that what he had just seen beneath the ocean, may, in fact, be an alien ship.
As explained by an in-depth article from the Daily Mail, the astronaut had written ‘unidentified object’ on the chart of the area rather than mentioning any historical shipwreck.
Miklos further explained: “I investigated some of Gordon’s charts, I realized that there was something else on there that Gordon was referring to.”
“Then it made sense to me why it wasn’t identified as a shipwreck… he had to mean it might be something from another world.”

“Gordon believed in aliens. He believed that we had visitors from other planets and he also believed that a lot of these things landed in this particular part of the world.”

Cultivating the Connection to your Sacred Space

08/11/2018 By Stillness in the Storm

(Abby Cahoone) It feels so good to have a place in your life where you thrive in your own energy, especially after a particularly long or stressful day. Your sacred space will be a place of solace and divine connection for you, so it is important to make it as aligned with your own energy, truth, and power as possible.
Related: Creating a Sacred Space
Source – The Divine Frequency

by Abby Cahoone, July 30th, 2018

Making this Space an Extension of Yourself.

Your sacred space is your sanctuary, it is a place you will be able to return to and connect to your own divine energy. Because of this, you are going to want to make the area you have chosen an extension of yourself.
During this week you are also going to decorate and add to your sacred space items that make you feel empowered and connected to your intention of the space. You will:

  • Explore what helps connect you to your own divinity, source, the Universe, God (whatever you are comfortable with calling that higher power).
  • Collect items from nature and personal items to use in your space.

What Makes an Item Sacred?

Since we have explored what makes a place sacred or holy, now is the time to think about the things you put in said area. 
In churches and other holy places, you may find an altar as a place for meditation, ritual, and prayer. These will hold your different objects in your space if you decide to take on. An altar may be decorated with candles or crosses, in the pagan religion and Shamanic traditions they will decorate their altar with crystals, stones, and other items from nature.

“It is a place to hold your prayers and intentions, as well as to focus your love and connection to Spirit. An altar is a place of non-ordinary reality held within ordinary reality. Altars are for your spiritual mind and soul heart to merge with your personality. Whether communal or personal, altars help to anchor your focus on Spirit, love, faith and possibility.”
Katherine Skaggs (Center for Shamanic Education and Exchange)

You may decide to make an altar inside of this “zen zone” you are creating, or you may decide that just having a few select items without needing them in a certain place resonates well for you. Remember, this is your area to cultivate and enhance!
Buy Book What is Magic? by Teresa Yanaros

Step 1: Brainstorming ideas for Objects

Sit in your now established sacred space and write down things you feel would help amplify its energy. Some ideas for you to get you started:

  • Crystals can help increase the vibration and cleanse the energies in a room or in your being.
  • Sage bundles (when burned) can help remove toxins of the room and in your being, increase your spiritual awareness, and help purify the energy of the space.
  • Stones and other items in nature can help connect you to Mother Earth, helping to feel grounded and secure. Some like to have all elements represented in their sacred space (Earth, Air, Fire, and Water)
  • Crosses, statues of the Buddha, or any other holy relics can help you feel a stronger connection to your religion if that is something you resonate towards.
  • Empowering quotes may be good to keep in your area to remind you of just how powerful you are and the connection to the Divine that you always have available to you.

Write down what inspires you, motivates you, and makes you feel connected to your “Higher self” and the Divine.  After you do this take a look at what you’ve written and make a list of things you need to collect for your sacred space or altar.

Step 2: Collect the Items from Step 1

This step may take the entire week, and that’s perfectly okay! Remember you can always add to this ever-growing creation. It can continue to expand just as you do over time! Go out in nature and collect what you need, visit a metaphysical store and pick up some crystals, find some empowering quotes and print them out to put around your space.

Step 3: Decorating the Space to make it your Own

After having collected everything take some time to sit in the energy of the space and see where each item is best suited. Follow your intuition and any energetic insights you receive. One great exercise to try when doing this is sitting in silence holding one of your objects. Feel into the energy it gives off and connect to it. Then look around your space and select the best space for the energy of this object. You may find a crystal is best suited to be right in front of you, or maybe a sage bundle burning is perfect on a shelf above you, use your own judgment for this. This way you are energetically decorating as well as physically decorating this area for yourself.
You may find as you revisit this spot that different relics will suit you better in other places, feel free to move anything as you need to in this area if this happens! Certain meditations may require adding or taking things away from the space for a time, again use your best judgment and intuition to make these decisions.

Step 4: Reflection

After you have spent a week going over what will aid you in your sacred space it’s time to grab your journal and answer the following questions:

  • What feelings do I get from different objects I have decided to put in this space?
  • Is there an object I feel very connected to and will use as a focus object (to hold or gaze at) during meditations?
  • The objects you have chosen are special and important, what is the importance of each one? (You will be able to re-visit your analysis here in the future for specific meditations. This is a great list to refer to).

When we create a sacred space outside of ourselves and bridge the relationship between the space and self, it will enhance the sacred space and connection we have with the core of ourselves and the Universe.

Wormwood/Nibiru/Planet X and Fear Mongering – Eddie Page


August 11, 2018


Most might not know what Wormwood is and how it is all connected to the events of the present age. Eddie explains the facts and data never told by anyone of what and who is Wormwood, and why the people say to some, it is fear mongering. How is this connected to the ancient Biblical references of the Day of the LORD? Understanding the events that are taking place as we know them at the present, how are they connected to the mythical Planet X-Niberu? Eddie will show us the current data that many governments agencies know about and yet have not told the world. Eddie shows again the proof and the data. Then the understanding of why some call it fear mongering.


Eddie shows current data to the facts of Niberu and where it is located, how it can be seen, and when the time it will arrive? Simple Astrobiology and Physics for those to understand. How this system is affecting the rotation of Earth and the other planets. The data speaks for itself and the proof is even harder to ignore.
Wake The Sheeple!

8 Things You Need to Know (But Probably Don’t)

8 Things You Need to Know (But Probably Don’t)
Gary Z McGee 

  • Aug 12, 2018

“The system cannot be fixed by the system.” ~Tom Morello

It is of the first order of importance to remember this: “the system cannot be fixed by the system.” It can only be fixed by the resistance of healthy, reasonable, imaginative, knowledgeable, compassionate and non-violent individuals. It can only be fixed by people who have re-conditioned their cultural conditioning, un-matrixed the Matrix, ninjaneered their statist indoctrination, and unwashed their political brainwash.
All of this despite uncomfortable cognitive dissonance, myopic tribal affiliation, and blind nationalism.
In short: the system can only be fixed by people who have dared to take a leap of courage outside the box of the system itself, and then double-dogged dared themselves to gain knowledge that undermines the unhealthy system while proactively building a healthier system.

1.) The expansion of imperial war undermines freedom:

“At the end of the cold war we could have diverted tax dollars to the quality of our lives, things like health care, education, infrastructure, eliminating poverty, and protecting against climate change. Alas, the peace dividend never happened. Why not? Because the military, and persons profiting from the military, like weapons manufacturers and their lobbyists in Congress didn’t want to. That’s why. Only 8 percent of Americans polled in 2014 wanted the United States to lead the world military. But that 8 percent won out. That’s plutocracy.” ~Ted Stanford, WWII Navy Veteran

If slavery is the opposite of freedom, then war is probably its inverse. It’s simple: human beings cannot be free when other human beings are threatening them with guns and bombs.

To the extent that guns and bombs are necessary is only in a defense-minded sense. Otherwise, the use of guns and bombs is just cold, calculated, murderous and offensive, war. It is only necessary if the Non-aggression principle has been violated and the loss of human life is at stake. Then, and only in a defensive sense, is the use of bombs and guns necessary.
The problem with war today is that it is not defense-minded but offense-minded. It is built upon an imperialist agenda and a money-making war machine that’s bolstered by a fight against phantom-terrorism that cannot be won. It seeks power and the control of natural resources, usually at the expense of innocent lives. In short: it is offensive and overreaching and not conducive to healthy and free human beings.

2.) The bloated military budget undermines freedom:

“Once weapons were manufactured to fight wars. Now wars are manufactured to sell weapons.” ~Arundhati Roy

The main reason the war machine is so offensive and overreaching is because of the bloated military budget. Exacerbated by war-profiteering companies like Lockheed Martin and Raytheon, the U.S. military is larger than the next seven militaries in the world, combined!
Let that sink in. World military spending totaled more than $1.6 trillion in 2015. The U.S. accounted for 37 percent of that total. If that’s not a bloated military, I don’t know what is. It’s time to scale back. It’s time to see the military industrial complex for what it really is: a terrorist generating war machine propped up by profiting weapons manufacturers.

The propaganda machine that the military industrial complex uses to convince its citizens that it needs more money is based on myopic nationalistic pride that imagines the money is going to our brave military men and women. Nothing could be further from the truth. It goes toward $200 million B-52 bombers and faulty F-35 fighter jets costing $400 billion each. Each! That is the height of insanity. Just imagine what use that money could go towards.
And yet we all just go about our day imagining that the government knows best. Meanwhile, our education system falters, our health care is being eroded, and our infrastructure crumbles. We can no longer see the error of our ways. As Noam Chomsky said, “The general population doesn’t know what’s happening, and it doesn’t even know that it doesn’t know.” And here we are, not even caring that we don’t know.

3.) The continual bailing out of Big Banks undermines freedom:

“The federal rescue of Wall Street didn’t fix the economy – it created a permanent bailout state based on a Ponzi-like confidence scheme. And the worst may be yet to come.” ~Matt Taibbi

Bailing out Wall Street was the ultimate bait-and-switch. It turns out that we’ve all been bamboozled. This mafia-esc, multi-layered, lie-upon-lie shit-cake goes so deep that it fooled congress twice into eating it –hook, line, and sinker. This article goes into detail about it.
The biggest problem with the bail out, other than that it has further entrenched the Too Big to Fail banking system, is that it has made lying on behalf of the most corrupt banks the official policy of the United States government.

This undermines freedom because it not only allows power to become absolute, it allows power to corrupt absolutely. There must be checks and balances on power. Especially power over people’s lives. Unchecked power tends to become tyrannical power. Tyrannical power tends to become evil. Failed systems should be allowed to fail lest failure be confused with success in some Orwellian double-spoken way.

4.) Overreaching offense-minded policing undermines freedom:

“The law is an opinion with a gun.” ~Stefan Molyneux

Healthy policing is an extension of healthy self-defense. Self-defense turned violent and overreaching is no longer about self-preservation. Similarly, policing turned violent and overreaching is no longer about protecting and serving. Violence should only ever be used in self-defense and never as a means toward enforcing one’s values, rules, or laws onto others, no matter how popular they are.
Defense-minded policing must remain a core philosophy if a police force intends to be a moral institution. The solution is not more ill-trained offense-minded police with too much power, but more well-trained defense-minded police with just enough power (a power with built-in checks and balances in place to prevent power from corrupting). In short: a complete eradication of the Thin Blue Line is in order.
The bottom line is that no single person should have as much power as a cop has. Nobody should be allowed to be judge jury and executioner in the street. To the extent that a defense-minded cop has power, it should be checked and balanced by the people who pay for the policing, first, and by other defense-minded cops, second. And all cops should be held to a higher standard precisely because of the immense power that they wield.

Until we can achieve a level of civilization where we have all evolved to a point where voluntarism and the non-aggression principle are second nature, the best alternative is defense-minded policing that doesn’t offensively overreach its power by shoving its gun down everyone’s throat.

5.) The corrupt electoral system undermines freedom:

“If you vote, you have no right to complain.” ~George Carlin

The electoral process has cemented into place a system of legalized bribery. Elections have become auctions. They are ridiculously overrated and flawed to begin with. They attract power hungry egomaniacs at best and warmongering sociopaths at worst. It’s time to usher in a new system of appointing leaders.
The problem is our choices are limited due to bi-partisan claptrap. Our decision seems to be “vote” or “not vote” which is influenced by state manipulation, cultural conditioning, and entrenched political propaganda with corrupt lobbying that creates divisiveness.
But there is a third option. We can “elect” to think outside the ballot box. We can “elect” to take money out of politics. We can “elect” to have a complete electoral system reboot. We can “elect” to implement a sortition system that lotteries-in leaders from an assembly of authentic leaders and prestigious elders and votes-out bad leaders. We can “elect” to devise a system that uses impeachment more often than it uses aggrandizement.

Indeed. We can “elect” to not elect a president at all, because we don’t need a scapegoat-puppet who is hamstrung by lobbyists, corporations, and bankers for a “leader.” We just need authentic leaders and prestigious elders –plural; chosen randomly from a competitive assembly of other authentic leaders and prestigious elders. That will get the job done just fine, while also preventing scapegoating and the rise of psychopaths.

6.) Despotic leadership undermines freedom:

The control of information is something the elite always does, particularly in a despotic form of government. Information, knowledge, is power. If you can control information, you can control people.” ~Tom Clancy

The chain of command. The chain of obedience. Allegiance to authoritative hierarchies. Top-down leadership. These forms of “leadership” have utterly failed us as a species. They have only ever led to unhealthy rigid order – creating robots, pawns, and sheep; which has only ever led to unnecessary wars waged between robots, pawns, and sheep who never had the courage to question authority. As Mark Passio surmised, “Order followers are the people that keep the system of slavery in place.”
The chain of command isn’t even leadership. It is despotic followership. It’s grossly outdated. They don’t train followers how to become leaders, they train followers how to remain followers through rank and file. A true leader must break rank at some point in order to become such, otherwise he/she is only a “leader” by authoritarian dictate, or according to some myopic and vacuous rank.
True leaders cannot be controlled; they learn, through self-mastery, through the teachings of other leaders, from Pain and Nature, how to discipline themselves. True leaders don’t follow power; they learn how to turn the tables on power, even their own, so that power does not corrupt.

True leaders don’t kowtow to tyranny or authoritarian rule; they attempt to dismantle it, despite the “rank and order” that props it up. Therefore, a true leader is a bottom-up leader who has the courage and the wherewithal to question the despotic top-down chain of obedience.
Strict obedience to authority at the expense of personal freedom must be thwarted. This requires courageous bottom-up leaders to throw a wrench into the machinery of the so called “chain of command.”

7.) Hoarding and shortsighted distribution undermines freedom:

“The problem with the Western world is surplus production. We’re in surplus production in almost every area. But there is a terrible distribution system where people around the globe suffer and die from starvation. This is a distribution problem, not a production problem.” ~John Ralston Saul

Extreme poverty and starvation are avoidable in this age of extreme surplus. The utter failure of our distribution system undermines freedom. It prevents people from thriving because they are expending all their vital energy on merely surviving.
If, as Harry Frankfurt said, “From the point of view of morality, it is not important that everyone should have the same. What is morally important is that each should have enough,” then it behooves us, as both reasonable and moral human beings, to make sure that we each have enough by fixing the corrupt system of distribution.
The deeper psychological problem is that we believe that our sense of worth is wrapped up in how skilled we are at something, because we were raised and conditioned in a culture that values competition over cooperation. This creates ego-centric specialists concerned only with narrow-minded one-upmanship over open-minded compassion.
But we are social creatures, first and foremost. We need each other to survive. Competition has always been secondary to cooperation; otherwise we wouldn’t have survived as a species (Darwin).
So, our worth is actually wrapped up in how much we care for each other. The problem is that we’ve had the cart (competition) in front of the horse (compassion) for too long. It’s time we got the horse back in front of the cart. This will be an arduously Herculean task, considering our cultural conditioning. But it is very important, for the survival of our species, that we get it right.

8.) Statism itself undermines freedom:

“At the core of all well-founded belief, lies belief that is unfounded.” ~Ludwig Wittgenstein

How do you know if you are a statist? You are a statist if you believe that you need a ruler to rule over you, if you believe that you require permission to be free, if you blindly worship a flag, and if you believe that violence is the answer to solving problems.
As it stands, the USA lives in an oligarchic state disguised as a democratic republic. Since a massive amount of wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few, we’re unable to maintain a healthy horizontal democracy. Instead, we’re forced to deal with the snake of an unhealthy vertical democracy which has the diabolical snakehead of oligarchic plutocracy.
If we lived within a horizontal democracy, we would have a better chance at being free. No masters, no rulers, and no chance for power to become concentrated in the hands of a few. As Edward Abbey said, “Since few men are wise enough to rule themselves, even fewer are wise enough to rule others.” Easier said than done, sure, but as Spinoza said, “All things excellent are as difficult as they are rare.”
When it comes down to it, it’s impossible to live freely within a plutocratic state. The plutocrats will simply continue buying up power by creating oppressive laws and “legal” extortion rackets that keep the people without wealth and power in a permanent state of poverty and powerlessness. Add to that the use of lobbyists and a fiat currency based on debt, and you have a nation of hoodwinked debt slaves (soft slavery) under the delusion that they live in a free democratic republic.
It’s time to decide upon the only choice that really matters: Free human, or indoctrinated statist; uncomfortable freedom, or comfortable slavery. The choice is yours.
And if the overreaching state should continue to use violence against us, then we plant our heels deep into the ground, we lay our shields low, and we declare to the Powers That Be, as Henry David Thoreau did: “I was not designed to be forced. I will breathe after my own fashion. Let us see who is the strongest.”

Drug-addicted pet owners may abuse their animal to secure opioid fix, study warns US vets

Posted: 12 Aug 2018 07:41 AM PDT

Some opioid addicts have been known to injure their pets to get their hands on powerful prescription drugs to satisfy their cravings, a new survey in Colorado has revealed, calling for more oversight on drug prescription by vets.
Arguing that authorities have overlooked the issue of a “supply and demand equation” of prescription opioids in the veterinary sector, the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus published the survey, revealing deliberate animal abuse by drug-addicted pet owners.
“Veterinarians prescribe synthetic opioids, which are a class of opioids driving the increase in drug-related overdose deaths,” the survey said. “Although intended for the treatment of animals, these are commercial-grade pharmaceuticals that have the potential to be diverted and abused by humans.”


Alex Jones Claims 5.6 Million New Subscribers Following Purge: ‘Never Had This Much People’

Alex Jones Claims 5.6 Million New Subscribers Following Purge: ‘Never Had This Much People’
Date: August 11, 2018Author: Nwo Report

“Infowars has had the highest traffic it’s ever had”

ByPaul Bois
In just 48 hours after the purging of his site Infowars from major platforms like Facebook and Youtube, Alex Jones claims he has gained a staggering 5.6 million more subscribers. Speaking with the Daily Mail on Wednesday, Jones said that the purging of his site only increased traffic, concluding that it ultimately backfired on his enemies.
“The good news is Infowars has had the highest traffic it’s ever had – 5.6 million new subscribers in the past 48 hours – and so has my radio show,” he said. “De-platforming doesn’t do anything, we already have the subscribers, it doesn’t do very much.”
Jones continued: “The loss we’ve had … on various platforms, has been way compensated by millions of new subscribers and visitors to our website, the mobile app, to our free podcast. We’ve never had this much people signing up for our news letter, podcast, video feeds, they’re all hitting subscribe, subscribe, subscribe.”
The only way that Big Tech could completely shut Jones out would be forcing internet providers to shut down his servers. Not even Apple, which kicked Jones off iTunes, will remove the Infowars app.
“Even if I was ever defeated, from other places around the world victory is going to come, this fight for human liberty is unstoppable,” Jones said. “People understand what’s happening and we’re gonna go on to the end whatever the cost is. We’re gonna never surrender.”
Jones argued that the purging of his platform was a sign of future purging for other platforms, explaining, “It’s very dangerous for everybody else, but for me, who has been chosen as the sacrificial lamb, there’s a big effect. Democrats are trying to demonize free speech, set the precedent to try to restrict free speech and so it’s a very villainous overall program. … They’ve got mainline Democratic senators saying they ought to restrict Fox News, Tucker Carlson, Matt Drudge, the President himself.”
Following the Infowars purge, Democrat Chris Murphy called for Big Tech to begin purging sites altogether in the name of defending eemocracy.

Are you a traveler with a rare blood type?

Are you a traveler with a rare blood type?

Mike Dammann
August 12, 20180

Let’s say your blood type is O negative. The universal donor. You can give blood to everyone else, but can only receive blood from others who are O negative. In your own country there might be 6-7% O negative, so it shouldn’t be an issue finding a donor in an emergency situation.
But what about in other countries around the world?

After a near-fatal motorcycle accident in Phuket, Thailand, David Connelly it took international media attention to find him a blood donor save his life.
If you are traveling in South-East Asia for example, most countries have an O negative frequency of around 1 in 1,000 people. There have been several cases in the past few years where travelers had accidents in countries like Thailand and it took a BBC article to finally find a compatible donor.
Lucy Hill from England became one of several people making international news for having had an accident in Asia and was unable to find a compatible blood donor until the BBC put out the call.
You may also have issues finding a blood donor in some African countries and if you are somewhere on a smaller island with a low population to begin with, it can be a matter of life and death to be connected with someone who can donate to you should you ever be in an emergency situations.

A sad example is a young girl who died because the donor didn’t arrive fast enough: Chinese Black Market pays $2,900 for Rh- Blood. And sometimes in regions with low rh negative frequencies, hospitals are not even prepared to have someone with a rare blood type and wind up giving the wrong type hoping it will be ok when it can also turn out fatal. I hate to say it, but it has to be your own responsibility to prepare for such an event.
So how can you be prepared?
Here are a few sources which can help you should you ever wind up needing someone who also has a rare blood type who can donate blood to you:
Rhesus Negatives Worldwide on WhatsApp

Remember this link in case you ever run into an emergency and have a tough time finding a blood donor.
Several of the admins are from countries like Singapore, South Korea, Philippines and Indonesia and connected all over with people running organizations in nations low in rh negative blood to ensure that people who are in an emergency situation will be connected with a donor nearby. Remember the group and you should be taken care of should anything ever happen.

A list of some of the networks worldwide dedicated to helping others with rare blood types in countries where they themselves have experienced how hard it is to come by a donor when you are rh- and especially O-
Blood Network
This Facebook driven application connects blood donors worldwide. If some of the areas are not covered, refer to the first option on this list.
Here is a list of blood type frequencies by country:
Blood Type Frequencies by Country including the Rh Factor
Be prepared! Contact those who can help you where you’re going beforehand. They know the risks and many of them had been in difficult situations to where they understand what it takes to help someone who is experiencing an immediate need for compatible blood.

Thug Learns Meaning of ‘Save the Drama for Your Mama’ After Testing Texas Granny

Conservative Tribune – by Sophia Clifton

Hanging on Jean Wilson’s front door in Houston is a sign that says, “Save the drama for your mama.”

One career criminal recently learned that lesson the hard way when he messed with Wilson and threatened her family.  

Thirty-nine-year-old Clarence Johnson Jr. allegedly was riding his bike down southeast Houston’s Cherrydale Street while exposing himself.

Wilson, a 69-year-old great-grandmother, said she was taking out the trash when she noticed his lewd behavior.

“I was walking out to the sidewalk to put something in the trash can. He got off his bike and walked after me when I went back to the house. He was rubbing himself,” Wilson said, according to KRTK-TV in Houston.

Wilson explained that the man wouldn’t listen to her when she said, “Get away from me, get away from me! Leave my house! Don’t come up to my door!”

She said he persisted even after she locked herself inside the house and retrieved her firearm.

“I went inside and got the gun, and told him I was going to shoot if he didn’t leave,” Wilson said.

“He kept coming and kept coming, reached for my door after it was locked, and so I shot through the door,” she said.

Showing reporters footprints in the mud by her porch, Wilson explained, “That’s the last place he stepped.”

Wilson said she gave the man ample warning to go away or get shot. “I don’t bother nobody, I don’t get in nobody’s business. It’s just me and him, and like I keep saying, I warned him,” she said.

Having been shot in the stomach, Johnson managed to scramble back onto his bike and ride a few feet away from her house before he collapsed. He was taken to the hospital for his injury but remains under police custody.

Johnson reportedly has been in and out of jail nine times over the last 22 years, mostly on drug charges. Just a week prior to his incident with Wilson, he had been apprehended by police for allegedly running around naked on another Houston street while possessing the drug PCP.

Wilson said she knew none of this when she shot the man trying to get into her house, making it clear she did what she had to do to “save her family.”

“I did it for my kids. I didn’t care if I died, but my grandson is disabled and couldn’t get away if he got in the house. My 11-year-old great granddaughter was also in the house,” she said.

She later added, “You have to do what you have to do, especially to protect your kids.”

Wilson regrets that she had to go to such extreme lengths to stop Johnson from entering her house, even though she knew he meant her harm. “I shot someone,” she said. “I’ve never shot a gun in my life until then.”

“I feel like I might have to answer for that one day,” she told an interviewer. “I just hope God forgives me for it. I want to see my (late) daughter in heaven.”

Even though she might not feel like a hero, Jean Wilson certainly is one — to both her family and her neighborhood.
