Inside Hong Kong’s cage homes


Twisted Sifter

Hong Kong is the most expensive housing market in the world. It has been ranked as the least affordable housing market on Earth for eight years in a row, and the price per square foot seems to be only going up. The inflated prices are forcing Hongkongers to squeeze into unconventionally small spaces that can affect their quality of life.

Tens of thousands of Hongkongers are living in spaces that range from 75 to 140 square feet. To put that in perspective, the average parking space in the US is about 150 square feet. And in the most extreme cases, Hongkongers have resorted to homes the size of a coffin.

Vox Borders spent some time exploring the living situation in Hong Kong to find out why housing has become so expensive and spaces so tight.

Russia’s new ‘walking army robot’ unveiled by Kalashnikov is 4.5-tonne bulletproof ‘soldier suit’ with claws

The Mirror

Russia has unveiled a terrifying 4.5-tonne bulletproof robot that can walk and hold weapons in its giant claws – and looks straight out of sci-fi films like Avatar and Robocop.

The Avatar-style ‘bot was revealed by Kalashnikov at the Army 2018 Fair just outside Moscow, as a ‘demonstration of what is to come.’

The robot can walk and has space in a cabin for people to sit and operate the robot from inside and can hold and move objects with its claws, including weapons.  

The pilots are protected from bullets, debris and any other dangerous object behind the armoured glass and metal encasement.

The gold robot, which has been called Igorek, is still under construction and the creators do not wish to reveal all its characteristics until they have finished.

It looks eerily like the Amplified Mobility Platform (AMP) mech suits that humans use in James Cameron’s sci-fi classic.

In the 2009 flick the Pandora Utility Suit is used by the army as they try to take over the Na’vi.

While Kalashnikov are remaining tight-lipped on any further details at the moment, Igorek is likely to be used to magnify soldiers’ strength while providing protection from military and environmental threats – just like the AMP suits in Avatar.

Other people have also compared the robot to the ?D-209 (Enforcement Droid series 209) from the Robocop series.

Vladimir Dmitriev from the Kalashnikov group, said: “This robot is probably one of the hottest new models of the ‘Army 2018’.

“Currently it is only a demonstration of the path we are planning on following.

“We understand that there are robotic machines driving on caterpillar and wheel drive, we also understand that there will be demand for anthropomorphic automatic movable systems.”

The Kalashnikov corporation is Russia’s largest rifle and assault weapons manufacturer. These days it produces some 95 percent of all small arms in the country and supplies more than 27 countries across the globe.

It found fame with the production of the AK-47 assault weapon – named after its inventor Mikhail Kalashnikov and colloquially known as the ‘Kalashnikov’

A 2004 report found that of the 500 million estimated firearms in the world, some 100 million were made by the Kalashnikov operation – and 75 percent of which as AK-47s.

How To Get Rid Of Paranoid Conspiracy Theorists

Medium – by Caitlin Johnstone

Are you as sick and tired as I am of all those tinfoil hat-wearing conspiracy nutters who express skepticism whenever the kind and beneficent US intelligence agencies bestow us with urgent information about a new country in need of regime change? Do you want to get rid of that kooky fringe 74 percent of Americans who believe in a “Deep State” which controls the elected government?

Well you’re in luck, bucko! I happen to have compiled right here a list of six simple steps that our compassionate government and fearless media can take to rid America of these looney toon paranoid conspiracy theorists once and for all:  

1. Stop f-king lying all the time.

Simple, right? Just stop lying and people will stop wondering how the narrative they’re being spoon fed by their politicians and the media differs from reality!

End the practice of defense and intelligence agencies collaborating with think tanks and unelected insiders to manufacture false narratives which are then promulgated by pundits and politicians of both mainstream parties to advance imperialist agendas. What will Alex Jones and Sputnik talk about if the voices of power start telling the truth all of a sudden instead of lying about the justifications for imperialist wars, excluding and censoring skeptics of establishment orthodoxies from the mainstream conversation, and being forthright about the massive and ubiquitous problems in America’s democratic system?

That’ll show those crackpots!

2. Try some actual f-king government transparency.

That’s right! Add government transparency into the mix and what will hostile non-state intelligence operatives like Julian Assange have to publish? I say we drive the WikiLeaks fake news complex right out of business by eliminating the immense veil of secrecy which shrouds so many levels of US government. That way when those annoying conspiracy kooks try to say we’re not being given the full story about the behavior of America and its allies, our leaders can just tell them “Uh, yes we are actually” and show unredacted documentation of all their behaviors.

How do you like that, Russian WikiLeaks? We are the WikiLeaks now!

3. Stop f-king killing people.

Of course, it’s hard to be transparent when you’re conducting countless military operations all over the planet at any given moment, so we’ll probably have to stop that too. We don’t want to give away the secret plans and locations of America’s brave servicemen and women, after all. Dedicate the US military to defending America’s own shores and close down the hundreds of US military bases which dot the world like freckles on a Scotsman, and the next time those paranoid conspiracy freaks start questioning what they’re being told they can just be shown the truth.

Not as much fun as drone bombing children, I’ll admit, but if we want to get serious about this conspiracy theory epidemic we’ve got to start somewhere.

4. Stop promoting f-king conspiracy theories.

I don’t like to be a Debbie downer, but when we’ve got news stories coming out every few days promoting theories about the US president conspiring with the Russian government, it gets a little difficult to tell people not to indulge in conspiracy theories. Unproven claims about powerful people conspiring together is the exact thing that a conspiracy theory is, and while I understand that these are authorized conspiracy theories, we can’t rely on these crazy loons to understand the distinction.

Better to lead by example and avoid trafficking in conspiracy theories altogether, in my opinion.

5. Stop being such f-king assholes.

If US intelligence agencies weren’t torturing people, they wouldn’t have to lie about torturing. If US intelligence agencies weren’t surveilling US citizens, they wouldn’t have to lie about their surveillance programs. If US intelligence agencies weren’t constantly committing horrific atrocities to protect the interests of the powerful from the powerless, everyone would trust them and you’d stop seeing all these ridiculous conspiracy theories about what those agencies have been up to.

Call me crazy, but I’ve got this wild notion that maybe if highly secretive defense and intelligence agencies weren’t inflicting unspeakable acts of depravity and degradation upon humanity all the time from behind the veil of government opacity, humanity would be less paranoid about them.

6. Maybe try some f-king democracy for once.

People are beginning to notice that no matter who they vote for they get the same exploitative neoliberal policies at home and the same murderous neoconservative policies abroad, which doesn’t do much to dispel those wacky notions about a permanent unelected government pulling the strings while the official elected government puts on a pretend democracy show every few years. It would probably be a good idea to do something about how America has the worst electoral system in the western world, how ordinary Americans have virtually no influence over US policy or behavior compared to wealthy Americans, and the way the rigidly-enforced two-party system necessarily creates an extortion scheme where both parties serve the same plutocratic interests but bully Americans into supporting one or the other under the threat of losing civil liberties.

And again, I hate to be a wet blanket, but those defense and intelligence agencies technically are unelected and technically do wield an immense amount of power, and technically do have an immense amount of influence over Washington, Wall Street, Silicon Valley, Hollywood, the mainstream media, big oil, plutocratic interests, US allies, world trade, and countless major world events. By restoring power to the people instead of leaving it all in the hands of an elite class of secretive agencies and their plutocratic allies, people might feel like they have a bit more control over what’s going on in their country and won’t have to make up nonsensical stories about a “deep state”.

If we could pull these steps off, what will these conspiracy-mongering grifters have to sell to the naive populace? If everyone trusts their government and feels confident in the democratic process, who will believe stories about powerful unelected forces ruling over them?

You certainly wouldn’t have 74 percent of them subscribing to this absurd “deep state” conspiracy theory, that’s for sure.

REDDING (KPIX 5) — Recently released video from Cal Fire shows the most intense tornado ever in California history that trapped and killed a firefighter in Redding last month.

37-year-old Jeremiah “Jeremy” Stoke was a longtime Redding Fire Department veteran. According to Cal fire, on July 26th, he was driving his truck in northwest Redding and helping evacuate residents from the Carr Fire when he got into trouble.  

Stoke radioed out a mayday call, saying he was getting burned over. Then his transmissions abruptly stopped.

The fire tornado exploded in the middle of what was already a gigantic and devastating wildfire.

The fire vortex was so unusual, Cal Fire investigators are still struggling to understand it.

While it was not the first documented fire tornado in California – a similar event happened at Coffey Park last October, for instance – but it was certainly the most powerful.

The actual vortex is visible in the video released by Cal Fire.

Even for fire researchers like Craig Clements, the director at the SJSU Fire Weather Research Lab, who had seen fire whirls before, it was an extraordinary event.

“You can clearly see the winds going like this and the circulations right here,” said Clements. “It’s an incredible sight.”

The video released by Cal Fire clearly shows the Carr Fire winds and flames moving in opposite directions forming a massive vortex.

The base of the fire tornado was 1,000 feet — the size of three football fields — with winds ranging from 136 to 165 mph, some of the worst in California history.

Peak temperatures inside the vortex rose as high as 2,700 degrees.

The aftermath left behind by the vortex was captured the next day by KPIX cameras.

Clements stressed the tornadoes themselves are not caused by climate change, though climate change may be contributing to more dry brush and fire fuel resulting in more extreme fire conditions.

Menlo Park Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman notes those conditions are partially a man-made phenomenon.

“There are things we can do. We can go in and mitigate the problem,” said Schapelhouman. “The predictability of what we could say was the norm before is completely out the window.”

He says there’s a need for more off-season controlled burns and vegetation management to help prevent extreme fire events that are becoming more common.

But as fire seasons worsen, Clements says technology is improving and may someday be able to help save lives, detecting fire tornadoes in its earliest stages.

“You can’t predict it, but you could potentially monitor fires with remote-sensing technology,” said Clements.

The SJSU Fire Weather Research Lab has lidar that — similar to how Doppler radar that can track rain and severe weather – can track smoke particles and detect fire vortex formation.

Clements says he can see a future where this technology — which is research grade right now — could be on every fire engine in the field.

New weekly report from Ben.
[Please note: I post Benjamin’s weekly articles because, generally (but not always), I resonate with them. It is all part of the overall data field. That’s how I view them. Those who do not resonate with them are free to pass them by. Everyone has their own “resonance field”, and I judge no one’s fields.]

“Several issues could trigger a brief, sharp war inside the U.S., in the Middle East, and possibly even in Japan this autumn, multiple sources agree. The key issue remains 9/11, a mass-murder event that remains unpunished and officially unacknowledged to this day. The 9/11 war crime was used as an excuse for the mass murder of Iraqi, Syrian, Afghan, and other peoples. Furthermore, if you dig deeper, it ties into the Kennedy assassinations of the 1960’s, the murder of Martin Luther King, as well as the December 26, 2004 and March 11, 2011 human-induced tsunami mass-murder attacks among many other crimes against humanity.
“It is interesting to note, by the way, that the 350 or so corporate publications that last week simultaneously put out editorials calling for freedom of the press have not dared to write the truth about any of these crimes against humanity… The complicity in crimes against humanity by these media outlets, controlled by six Khazarian conglomerates, means they are enemies of the people and need to be occupied by military police and forced to write the truth.
“A lot of people think U.S. President Donald Trump is going to be the man to end Khazarian rule and tell people the truth. Well, so far, since being elected, he has not said anything about 9/11, Fukushima, or other war crimes.
“Of course, Trump would never have been allowed to run for President if he was not controlled through the usual combination of bribery and blackmail. However, even then Trump was scripted to lose the election. It was patriots in the military and the ABC agencies who decided he was the lesser of two evils and used Special Forces to break into the computer centers (like the one under Denver Airport) that were being used to steal the election for Hillary Clinton.

Issues simmering over the summer may lead to war in the autumn
By Benjamin Fulford, White Dragon Society, August 20, 2018
Several issues could trigger a brief, sharp war inside the U.S., in the Middle East, and possibly even in Japan this autumn, multiple sources agree. The key issue remains 9/11, a mass-murder event that remains unpunished and officially unacknowledged to this day. The 9/11 war crime was used as an excuse for the mass murder of Iraqi, Syrian, Afghan, and other peoples. Furthermore, if you dig deeper, it ties into the Kennedy assassinations of the 1960’s, the murder of Martin Luther King, as well as the December 26, 2004 and March 11, 2011 human-induced tsunami mass-murder attacks among many other crimes against humanity.
It is interesting to note, by the way, that the 350 or so corporate publications that last week simultaneously put out editorials calling for freedom of the press have not dared to write the truth about any of these crimes against humanity. That’s because they are mostly owned by the people who carried out these crimes—the Khazarian mafia.
https://www.cnn.com/2018/08/16/politics/newspaper-editorials-trump-list/index.html
When is The New York Times and the rest of the corporate propaganda media going to write that it was the Zionist neo-cons who planned and carried out the 9/11 attacks? When are they going to write about what was in all the Kennedy assassination documents that were recently released? Why don’t they write that it was Israeli Prime Minister David Ben-Gurion, working under orders from his Khazarian Rothschild masters etc., who ordered the Kennedy assassinations? Why don’t they report the truth like they are supposed to?

The complicity in crimes against humanity by these media outlets, controlled by six Khazarian conglomerates, means they are enemies of the people and need to be occupied by military police and forced to write the truth.
https://www.businessinsider.com/these-6-corporations-control-90-of-the-media-in-america-2012-6
The truth, as readers of this newsletter know, is that the Khazarian faction of the Western establishment carried out these and countless other war crimes to remain in control of the world’s financial system and thus true world power. As a member of the British royal family once told me, “They are not going to go quietly into the night.” In other words, it is going to take all-out war to remove these criminals.
A lot of people think U.S. President Donald Trump is going to be the man to end Khazarian rule and tell people the truth. Well, so far, since being elected, he has not said anything about 9/11, Fukushima, or other war crimes. You can also confirm through open source news articles that, as a businessman, he was bailed out by the Rothschilds each time he went bankrupt.
Of course, Trump would never have been allowed to run for President if he was not controlled through the usual combination of bribery and blackmail. However, even then Trump was scripted to lose the election. It was patriots in the military and the ABC agencies who decided he was the lesser of two evils and used Special Forces to break into the computer centers (like the one under Denver Airport) that were being used to steal the election for Hillary Clinton (Rockefeller).
Also, thanks to the military backers of the Trump regime, enough U.S. officials involved in crimes against humanity have now been removed from power for the next phase of the revolution to begin, Pentagon sources say. The sources say that starting this autumn…

Metamaterial that bends, shapes and focuses sound waves

Posted: 18 Jun 2018 10:55 AM PDT

Metamaterial that bends, shapes and focuses sound waves

A super-material that bends, shapes and focuses sound waves that pass through it has been invented by scientists. 
The creation pushes the boundaries of metamaterials – a new class of finely-engineered surfaces that perform nature-defying tasks.
These materials have already shown remarkable results with light manipulation, allowing scientists to create a real-life version of Harry Potter’s invisibility cloak, for example.
But a research team from the Universities of Sussex and Bristol have now shown that they also work with sound waves, which could transform medical imaging and personal audio.
Finely shaped sound fields are used in medical imaging and therapy as well as in a wide range of consumer products such as audio spotlights and ultrasonic haptics. The research published today (Monday 27 February 2017) in Nature Communications shows a simple and cheap way of creating these shaped sound waves using acoustic metamaterials.

Metamaterial bricks are assembled into a layer to produce a meta-surface, which could have applications across healthcare and entertainment 

These space coiling bricks act to slow down sound waves, meaning that they can be transformed into any required sound field
Nature Communications – Metamaterial bricks and quantization of meta-surfaces

The collaborative research team assembled a metamaterial layer out of lots of small bricks that each coil up space. The space coiling bricks act to slow down the sound meaning that incoming sound waves can be transformed into any required sound field.
The new metamaterial layers could be used in many applications. Large versions could be used to direct or focus sound to a particular location and form an audio hotspot. Much smaller versions could be used to focus high intensity ultrasound to destroy tumours deep within the body. Here, a metamaterial layer could be tailor-made to fit the body of a patient and tuned to focus the ultrasound waves where they are needed most. In both cases the layer could be fitted to existing loudspeaker technology and be made rapidly and cheaply.
Dr Gianluca Memoli, from the Interact Lab at the University of Sussex who led the study, said: “Our metamaterial bricks can be 3D printed and then assembled together to form any sound field you can imagine. We also showed how this can be achieved with only a small number of different bricks. You can think of a box of our metamaterial bricks as a do-it-yourself acoustics kit.
Professor Sriram Subramanian, Head of the Interact Lab at the University of Sussex, added: “We want to create acoustic devices that manipulate sound with the same ease and flexibility with which LCDs and projectors do to light. Our research opens the door to new acoustic devices combining diffraction, scattering and refraction, and enables the future development of fully digital spatial sound modulators, which can be controlled in real time with minimal resources.”
Bruce Drinkwater, Professor of Ultrasonics at the University of Bristol, explained: “In the future I think there will be many exciting applications of this technology. We are now working on making the metamaterial layers dynamically reconfigurable. This will mean we can make cheap imaging systems which could be used either for medical diagnostics or crack detection.”

https://youtu.be/BcVxRyvipcU

Abstract
Controlling acoustic fields is crucial in diverse applications such as loudspeaker design, ultrasound imaging and therapy or acoustic particle manipulation. The current approaches use fixed lenses or expensive phased arrays. Here, using a process of analogue-to-digital conversion and wavelet decomposition, we develop the notion of quantal meta-surfaces. The quanta here are small, pre-manufactured three-dimensional units—which we call metamaterial bricks—each encoding a specific phase delay. These bricks can be assembled into meta-surfaces to generate any diffraction-limited acoustic field. We apply this methodology to show experimental examples of acoustic focusing, steering and, after stacking single meta-surfaces into layers, the more complex field of an acoustic tractor beam. We demonstrate experimentally single-sided air-borne acoustic levitation using meta-layers at various bit-rates: from a 4-bit uniform to 3-bit non-uniform quantization in phase. This powerful methodology dramatically simplifies the design of acoustic devices and provides a key-step towards realizing spatial sound modulators.

22 People Shot During a Mass Shooting Sunday, But it Doesn’t Fit the Narrative, So Media is Ignoring It

Posted: 18 Jun 2018 12:00 PM PDT

22 People Shot During a Mass Shooting Sunday, But it Doesn’t Fit the Narrative, So Media is Ignoring It

Trenton, New Jersey – Reports of a mass shooting at an arts festival in which at least 22 people were injured may have sounded like the perfect recipe to send anti-gun politicians and mainstream media pundits to their soapboxes to call for increased gun control, but instead, it has quietly disappeared from the headlines, and there are a few notable reasons why.
Around 1,000 people were enjoying the Arts All Night festival when gunfire broke out around 2:45 a.m. on Sunday. While the horrific incident included some of the basic elements of typical mass shootings, with a gunman opening fire on an unarmed crowd, there are a few distinct differences that set it apart.

Location

The shooting happened in the state of New Jersey, which is known for having some of the strictest gun control laws in the country. In fact, Gov. Phil Murphy signed six bills into law last week that are all targeted at increasing gun control by expanding background checks, adding increased restrictions to concealed carry permits, and reducing the legal capacity of ammunition magazines.
The new legislation also included a law that establishes a “red flag” system where individuals can report people who they believe are dangerous, and those suspects will have their firearms temporarily seized by police. Yet even with the restrictions that were already in place, both the media and politicians have stayed eerily silent about the fact that the state’s strict gun control laws did not stop this mass shooting.

Suspects

Every time the mainstream media devotes 24/7 coverage to a mass shooting, there is one main thing in common—the suspect. Each massacre is carried out by a “lone wolf gunman” who has a list of reasons why he is angry at the world, a handful of psychotropic drugs that have side effects which explain his erratic and violent behavior, and a longing to gain fame and notoriety like the mass shooters who came before him.
In the case of the recent mass shooting in New Jersey, there were two suspects—Tahaij Wells, 32, and Amir Armstrong, 23. They were reportedly members of opposing gangs, and while they opened fire on one another, Wells has been blamed for unleashing a hail of bullets on the crowd, and he was eventually taken down after he was shot and killed by police.
While it is not clear how Wells obtained his weapons, he did not obtain firearms legally, as he was on parole after he served time in prison on aggravated manslaughter charges stemming from the fatal shooting of a 22-year-old man in 2004.

Weapons

As is the case with the mainstream narrative on mass shootings, the “lone wolf gunman” typically uses an AR-15, which has been branded as an “assault rifle” and demonized by lawmakers who seek to ban it. The idea is that the suspect opts for a high-powered weapon in order to kill the largest number of people.

However, in the recent shooting, both Wells and Armstrong were armed with handguns, and a report from NBC Philadelphia confirmed that while multiple weapons were recovered from the scene, none of them were “assault rifles.” While police have claimed that the officers on the scene were responsible for shooting and killing Wells, it is not clear whether they are responsible for injuring any of the victims.
Winston Churchill is credited with the quote, “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” and while that is typically the way politicians and mainstream media pundits treat most mass shootings, their silence on the shooting in New Jersey is especially notable because it does not qualify for their narrative.
Similar instances occurred when an off-duty security guard opened fire inside of a restaurant in Oklahoma City and he was stopped by armed citizens in May, and when a disgruntled content creator opened fire on YouTube’s headquarters in another state with notoriously strict gun laws in April.

Spread the love

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.
DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.
If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

12 Clinton Whistleblowers Found ‘Hanging From Doorknobs’

12 Clinton Whistleblowers Found ‘Hanging From Doorknobs’
Date: June 18, 2018Author: Nwo Report

A CIA agent claims the recent spate of celebrity ‘suicides’ all bear the hallmarks of a professional hit job, designed to silence others from going public with damaging political information.
Following the death of CNN reporter Anthony Boudain last week, former agent Robert David Steele pointed out that a growing number of whistleblowers have all been found inexplicably ‘hanging from doorknobs.’
Bourdain’s ‘suicide’ followed the death of fashion designer Kate Spade only a few days prior. Like Mr. Bourdain, Spade was also found hanging from a doorknob.
Spade and Bourdain both had knowledge of child sex trafficking operation linked to the Clintons.
According to agent Steele, the circumstances of the death has a significant symbolic meaning that intelligence agencies immediately recognize:
“Hung on doorknobs…means choked for speaking out against the cabal.”
List of celebrities silenced by the Clintons
L’Ren Scott
L’Ren Scott, (former girlfriend of Nate Rothschild) was found dead by her assistant at her apartment in the Chelsea neighborhood of Manhattan on March 17, 2014.
The police reported that no note was found and there was no sign of foul play.
The New York City Chief Medical Examiner determined Scott’s manner and cause of death to be “suicide by hanging.”She was 49.
Chris Cornell
Cornell was found unconscious by his bodyguard, hanging from the doorknob in the bathroom of his hotel room at the MGM Grand in Detroit, after performing at a show with Soundgarden at the Fox Theatre on May 17.
He was lying on the floor with an exercise band around his neck and blood in his mouth.  An MGM medic and EMS personnel were unable to revive Cornell.
Cornell was pronounced dead by a doctor at 1:30 a.m. Police ruled out homicide by reviewing a hotel surveillance video, which showed nobody entering or exiting the suite after his bodyguard left at around 11:35 p.m.
The cause of death was determined to be “suicide by hanging.”After Chris Cornell’s tragic death, evidence later emerged that he was working with his best friend, Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, to expose an elite pedophile ring.
Chris and his wife set up a charity called the Chirs and Vicky Cornell Foundation which works to help victims of child abuse.
Chester Bennington
Bennington was found dead at his home in Palos Verdes Estates, California; his housekeeper discovered his body hanging from a doorknob around 9:00 a.m. PDT on July 20, 2017.
His death was officially ruled as suicide.
His bandmate Mike Shinoda confirmed his death on Twitter, writing, “Shocked and heartbroken, but it’s true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one”.
On July 21, Brian Elias, the chief of operations for the office of the medical examiner-coroner, confirmed that a half-empty bottle of alcohol was found at the scene, but no other drugs were present.
Avicii
Swedish DJ Avicii, real name Tim Bergling, died on 20 April 2018 near Muscat, Oman, at the age of 28.
No cause of death was immediately given.
On 21 April, the Omani police stated that there was “no criminal suspicion” or evidence of foul play in Bergling’s death.
On 26 April, his family released an open letter stating that Bergling “really struggled with thoughts about meaning, life, happiness. He could not go on any longer.”
On 1 May, TMZ reported that the cause of death was a suicide due to self-inflicted injuries.
Although full details of his death were not released, TMZ reports that he suffered cuts from broken glass along with neck injuries.
Although it is unclear what the injuries to his neck were, it could have been caused by asphyxiation and hanging has not been ruled out.
After his death, it emerged that Avicii was working to expose an elite pedophile ring.One of his videos began to recirculate in which he attempts to expose child trafficking.
David Carradine
On June 3, 2009, at the age of 72, Hollywood actor David Carradine was found dead in his room at the Swissôtel Nai Lert Park Hotel on Wireless Road, near Sukhumvit Road, in central Bangkok, Thailand.
He was in Bangkok to shoot his latest film, titled Stretch.
A police official said that Carradine was found naked, hanging by a rope tied to the doorknob of the room’s closet, causing immediate speculation that his death was suicide.
However, reported evidence suggested that his death was accidental, the result of autoerotic asphyxiation.
Two autopsies were conducted, one involving the celebrity pathologist Pornthip Rojanasunan, and both concluded that the death was not a suicide.
The cause of death became widely accepted as “accidental asphyxiation.”Carradine’s lawyer Vicki Roberts said:
“I believe there may have been foul play.”
Reports around the time of his death suggest that Carradine may have been involved in child sex tourism; a rampant issue in Thailand where he was found.
If he was involved in pedophilia, could he have been connected to a wider network of Hollywood elite pedophiles?
Robin Williams 
On August 11, 2014, Williams died at his home in Paradise Cay, California.
In the initial report released on August 12, the Marin County Sheriff’s Office deputy coroner stated Williams had hanged himself after he was found hanging from a doorknob with a necktie.
The final autopsy report, released in November 2014, ruled that Williams had committed suicide by hanging himself from the doorknob.
Neither alcohol nor illegal drugs were involved, while all prescription drugs present in his body were at “therapeutic” levels, the coroner declared.
Alexander McQueen 
Fashion designer Alexander McQueen’s death was announced on the afternoon of 11 February 2010.
In the morning, his housekeeper found him hanging from a doorknob at his home in Green Street, London W1.
Paramedics were called and they pronounced him dead at the scene.
The Metropolitan Police stated that the note was not suspicious, but did not confirm that the death was a suicide.
[h/t to Neon Nettle]
Phibetaiota.net reports:
The Queen of the Netherlands sister just “hung herself” from her door knob. That particular Queen stepped down after allegations of having “hunts” where children were raped and massacred by her dinner guests.
Aaoron Schwartz hung himself on his doorknob after he hacked into MIT Computers and found a huge stash of Child Pornography.
Michael Hutchence from the band INXS hung himself from his doorknob.
How high are these doorknobs? Wouldn’t your feet and probably your whole body touch the floor? Second of all, what kind of scarves are these? I don’t think I have any scarves strong enough to do the job……Is there some suicide scarf collection out there?
I think this trend of hanging oneself on doorknobs with scarves stinks to high heaven. I am having a hard time buying it.
Sounds like some sort of “calling card” from the real killers.
Who knew Doorknobs were so deadly?
Phi Beta Iota: One of our experts says that cutting off the bloodstream to the brain for 15 seconds causes a loss of consciousness.  There are a number of alleged suicides in Europe that appear to be rooted in light strangulation with two fingers first, then hanging of the victim from the doorknob to complete the job.  Murder, not suicide.  The combination of the doorknob and the scarf appears to be a signature intended to terrorize others who may be thinking about ratting out the elites above them and known to  them.

New Copyright Law Could Make Current and Future Internet Memes Illegal to Share

Posted: 18 Jun 2018 04:29 PM PDT

New Copyright Law Could Make Current and Future Internet Memes Illegal to Share

Posting memes, remixes, and other similar content could soon be banned from the web in the European Union, according to critics who are speaking out against a recently proposed copyright law.
The law, known as the “Copyright Directive,” will be voted on later this month by the European Parliament, and lawmakers suggest that this will protect content creators in the internet age. However, one of the primary reasons why the internet age has brought us so much innovation and novelty is because of the fact that such a large aggregate of people are able to share their ideas and build upon the ideas of others to create something uniquely special.
Article 13 of the proposed bill calls on platform providers such as Google, Facebook, and web hosts to “take measures to ensure the functioning of agreements concluded with rights-holders for the use of their works”.
This type of policy would create a slippery slope that could very quickly lead to a situation where platforms are required to add a filter for the content that is shared through them, which will restrict the ability for creators to do something as simple as creating a meme or a remix of a song.
When the law was first suggested, the Electronic Frontier Foundation and 56 other civil society organizations sent an open letter to European lawmakers, warning of the possible implications of this law.
The letter reads:

gations on internet service providers that share and store user-generated content, such as video or photo-sharing platforms or even creative writing websites, including obligations to filter uploads to their services. Article 13 appears to provoke such legal uncertainty that online services will have no other option than to monitor, filter and block EU citizens’ communications if they are to have any chance of staying in business. …
Article 13 would force these companies to actively monitor their users’ content, which contradicts the “no general obligation to monitor” rules in the Electronic Commerce Directive. The requirement to install a system for filtering electronic communications has twice been rejected by the Court of Justice, in the cases Scarlet Extended (C 70/10) and Netlog/Sabam (C 360/10). Therefore, a legislative provision that requires internet companies to install a filtering system would almost certainly be rejected by the Court of Justice because it would contravene the requirement that a fair balance be struck between the right to intellectual property on the one hand, and the freedom to conduct business and the right to freedom of expression, such as to receive or impart information, on the other.”
Last week, Jim Killock, executive director of the UK’s Open Rights Group, told the BBC that “Article 13 will create a ‘Robo-copyright’ regime, where machines zap anything they identify as breaking copyright rules, despite legal bans on laws that require ‘general monitoring’ of users to protect their privacy. Unfortunately, while machines can spot duplicate uploads of Beyonce songs, they can’t spot parodies, understand memes that use copyright images, or make any kind of cultural judgment about what creative people are doing. We see this all too often on YouTube already.”
Add to that, the EU wants to apply the Robocop approach to extremism, hate speech, and anything else they think can get away with, once they put it in place for copyright. This would be disastrous,” Killock added.
Intellectual property is often sold as a legal measure to protect artists from scammers who may attempt to replicate their brand, but more often than not these types of legal avenues are taken advantage of by opportunists and exploited by publishers to the detriment of truly creative people. In the past, it was nearly impossible to implement such control over the internet, but now with complicated algorithms and the compliance of silicon valley tech companies, freedom on the internet is under constant threats.

Odd Fireball ’40 times as bright as full moon’ lights up Alabama sky

Posted: 19 Aug 2018 08:04 PM PDT

Odd Fireball ’40 times as bright as full moon’ lights up Alabama sky

on August 18, 2018 

NASA has released video of “a very bright” fireball that lit up the sky over Alabama just after midnight Friday morning. The official time of sighting was 12:19 a.m. CDT.

The fireball, which is NASA’s word for a very bright meteor, was described as “at least 40 times as bright as the Full Moon.” It was first seen 58 miles above Turkeytown, Ala. northeast of Gadsden, according to NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office at Huntsville’s Marshall Space Flight Center.

The fireball was moving northwest at 53,700 miles per hour and fragmented about 18 miles above the small town of Grove Oak, NASA said.

“Early results indicate the (meteor) was caused by a small asteroid 6 feet in diameter,” NASA said. “We are still assessing the probability of the fireball producing meteorites on the ground.”

“Whether it did or not,” NASA said, “it was an extremely bright event seen through partly cloudy skies and triggering every camera and sensor operated by the Meteroid Environment Office in the region.”

NASA talks about one object (meteor) but there are two bright objects which seem to come together and then explode, which you can see in the first video.

Study Shows Cell Phone Towers Harmful To Animals, Plants – 5G Will Be Much Worse

Electromagnetic Radiation From Power Lines and Cell Towers Disorientates Birds, Insects, Affects Plant Health

EKLIPSE is a UK based organization that aims to, “…improve the integration of emerging issues into policy development related to or impacting on biodiversity and ecosystem services.”

The Telegraph reports that the nonprofit research group analyzed 97 studies and came to the conclusion that radiation from power lines, [url=http://humansarefree.com/search/label/Wi-Fi Dangers]Wi-Fi[/url], broadcast transmitters, and cellular towers pose a “credible risk” to wildlife and also degrades plant health.

They warn that the upcoming 5G rollout could cause greater harm.

Animals including birds, mammals, insects and many others use the earth’s geomagnetic field as a magnetic compass. The EKLIPSE report showed that the magnetic orientation of birds, insects, spiders, and other animals including mammals can be disrupted by electromagnetic radiation. The report also established that these radiations also have an adverse effect on plant metabolism.

The report stated that “…serious impacts on the environment could not be ruled out.” They are asking for 5G transmitters to be placed away from areas where placement is likely to harm wildlife.

The UK charity Buglife, after reviewing the report, is suggesting that 5g transmitters not be placed near LED street lamps, due to the fact that these lights attract insects and would thereby increase their exposure to the radiation.

The authors of the review concluded that there is ” …an urgent need to strengthen the scientific basis of the knowledge on EMR and their potential impacts on wildlife.

” … In particular, there is a need to base future research on sound, high-quality, replicable experiments so that credible, transparent and easily accessible evidence can inform society and policy-makers to make decisions and frame their policies.”

Matt Shardlow, CEO of Buglife, brought up a very good point:

“We apply limits to all types of pollution to protect the habitability of our environment, but as yet, even in Europe, the safe limits of electromagnetic radiation have not been determined, let alone applied.”

This isn’t the first report on potential dangers with Electromagnetic Radiation.

study from 2010 suggested that this electromagnetic radiation may be accelerating or causing a decline of certain animal and insect populations.

In the mid-1990s the cell phone industry commissioned a comprehensive research group called Wireless Technology Research to study cell phone health concerns.

Dr. George Carlo oversaw the research. The commission started to reveal that there were serious health concerns with cell phone usage and then the industry decided to bury the results.

Lincoln was a War Criminal

Southern Sentinel – by Thomas J. DiLorenzo

President Lincoln, who is considered by most historians (or at least the politically correct ones) to be the best and certainly the most important U.S. President, wielded power in a fashion never seen before nor since. The fact that he died as a martyr is why history has viewed him in such a kind albeit sanitized light.

During the Civil War, Lincoln continuously circumvented the law and in many cases suspended the Constitution altogether. In doing so, Lincoln denied the rights of citizens he was sworn to protect. He suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus, closed courts by force, and arrested citizens and elected officials without cause. Lincoln also raised troops without the consent of Congress, closed-down newspapers whose writers displayed any dissent to U.S. policy.  

Lincoln’s troops razed the South and doomed to poverty–generations of Southerners for many years to come. General Sherman‘s “March to the Sea” was nothing more than a marauding rampage filled with robbery, rape, and murder. These men were less soldiers on a military mission and more common thugs on a crime spree. Northern armies brought war to women, children, and privately held property as a matter of official policy (rather than as so-called “collateral damage”).

Lincoln ordered the arrest of Baltimore police chief George P. Kane, police commissioner Charles Howard, as well as fellow commissioners: William H. Gatchell, John W. Davis, and Charles D. Hinks. Baltimore Mayor George W. Brown was arrested and sent to Fort McHenry. The men were incarcerated because they dared to publicly disagree with Lincoln and refused to carry-out the President’s tyrannical orders.

Baltimore was placed under federal control and a military police force was formed.

Both the continents of Europe and South America ended the practice of slavery, and unlike the United States government–they did so without murdering 700,000 of their own citizens. The abhorrent practice of slavery could have and would have been ended in this country, without ever firing a shot.

Contrary to popular belief (as perpetuated by government schools), slavery was a national institution, it was not unique to the South. Upon his inauguration, Lincoln could have freed the slaves in the Northern states which would have put severe diplomatic pressure on the South. However, Lincoln besides being a tyrant was also an incredible hypocrite. Lincoln’s multitude of personal letters show his outright disgust for the black man and his truly racist views.

Consider a few rarely spoken facts:

  • -Northern General U.S. Grant continued to hold a slave for nearly a year after the war. In fact, it took an act of Congress to finally free the man from Grant’s possession.
  • -Northern General Tecumseh Sherman was arrested many times for brutally abusing several of his slaves.
  • Conversely, Confederate General Robert E. Lee freed all of his slaves prior to the start of the war. That act by the military leader of the South truly displays that for the Confederacy, the war was only about states’ rights and a just rebellion against tyranny–not about slavery!

Lincoln’s War (otherwise known as the Civil War), was much less about freeing oppressed blacks and much more about the federal government exerting complete control over all citizens. Lincoln’s actions were a direct assault upon the wishes of our founding fathers. Lincoln cared very little for the rule of law, as evidenced by his numerous suspensions of U.S. Constitutional rights.

I believe that had Lincoln survived his second term–his place in this nation’s history would be seen in a much different light. Furthermore, had the Civil War ended with a different outcome, Lincoln and many of his generals would have been deservedly tried as war criminals.

Of course, the victors write the history books–even when they tell lies.

LINCOLN’S CRIMES

1. Lincoln waged a war that cost the lives of 620,000 Americans. Including the murder of 50,000 innocent Southern civilians.

2. He arrested several thousand Marylanders suspected of Southern sympathies, including 30 members of the State legislature, a US Congressman representing Maryland, the mayor and police commissioner of Baltimore, and most of the Baltimore city council. These political detainees were imprisoned in Fort McHenry and Point Lookout without trial, in many cases, for several years.

3. He suspended the writ of habeas corpus without the consent of Congress (as required by the Constitution).

4. He illegally shut down and confiscated the printing presses of dozens of newspapers that had spoken out against him.

5. He re-instated and summarily promoted an Army officer who had been court martialed and cashiered by the US Army for war crimes.

6. He even had an arrest warrant issued for the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court because said justice refused to back his illegal actions.

7. Chief Justice Roger B Taney ruled that Lincolns actions were illegal, criminal and unconstitutional.

8. He invaded the South without the consent of Congress as required by the Constitution.

9. He blockaded Southern ports without a delclaration of war, as required by the Constitution.

10. He imprisoned without trial, hundreds of newspaper editors and owners and censored all newspaper and telegraph communication.

11. He created two new states without the consent of the citizens of those states in order to artificially inflate the Republican Partys electoral vote.

12. He ordered Federal troops to interfere with Northern elections to assure his Parties victories.

13. He confiscated private property, including firearms, in violation of the Second Amendment; and effectively gutted the Tenth and Ninth Amendments as well.

14. He had his Generals attack US cities full of women and children and burn them to the ground.

Still not convinced? Well let’s look at some really really hard facts that will be hard for you to swallow. The follow was written by Thomas J. DiLorenz.

One hundred thirty-six years after General Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox, Americans are still fascinated with the War for Southern Independence. The larger bookstores devote an inordinate amount of shelf space to books about the events and personalities of the war; Ken Burns’s “Civil War” television series and the movie “Gettysburg” were blockbuster hits; dozens of new books on the war are still published every year; and a monthly newspaper, Civil War News, lists literally hundreds of seminars, conferences, reenactments, and memorial events related to the war in all 50 states and the District of Columbia all year long. Indeed, many Northerners are “still fighting the war” in that they organize a political mob whenever anyone attempts to display a Confederate heritage symbol in any public place.

Americans are still fascinated by the war because many of us recognize it as the defining event in American history. Lincoln’s war established myriad precedents that have shaped the course of American government and society ever since: the centralization of governmental power, central banking, income taxation, protectionism, military conscription, the suspension of constitutional liberties, the “rewriting” of the Constitution by federal judges, “total war,” the quest for a worldwide empire, and the notion that government is one big “problem solver.”

Perhaps the most hideous precedent established by Lincoln’s war, however, was the intentional targeting of defenseless civilians. Human beings did not always engage in such barbaric acts as we have all watched in horror in recent days. Targeting civilians has been a common practice ever since World War II, but its roots lie in Lincoln’s war.

In 1863 there was an international convention in Geneva, Switzerland, that sought to codify international law with regard to the conduct of war. What the convention sought to do was to take the principles of “civilized” warfare that had evolved over the previous century, and declare them to be a part of international law that should be obeyed by all civilized societies. Essentially, the convention concluded that it should be considered to be a war crime, punishable by imprisonment or death, for armies to attack defenseless citizens and towns; plunder civilian property; or take from the civilian population more than what was necessary to feed and sustain an occupying army.

The Swiss jurist Emmerich de Vattel (1714-67, author of The Law of Nations, was the world’s expert on the proper conduct of war at the time. “The people, the peasants, the citizens, take no part in it, and generally have nothing to fear from the sword of the enemy,” Vattel wrote. As long as they refrain from hostilities themselves they “live in as perfect safety as if they were friends.” Occupying soldiers who would destroy private property should be regard as “savage barbarians.”

In 1861 the leading American expert in international law as it relates to the proper conduct of war was the San Francisco attorney Henry Halleck, a former army officer and West Point instructor whom Abraham Lincoln appointed General-in-Chief of the federal armies in July of 1862. Halleck was the author of the book, International Law, which was used as a text at West Point and essentially echoed Vattel’s writing.

On April 24, 1863, the Lincoln administration seemed to adopt the precepts of international law as expressed by the Geneva Convention, Vattel, and Halleck, when it issued General Order No. 100, known as the “Lieber Code.” The Code’s author was the German legal scholar Francis Leiber, an advisor to Otto von Bismarck and a staunch advocate of centralized governmental power. In his writings Lieber denounced the federal system of government created by the American founding fathers as having created “confederacies of petty sovereigns” and dismissed the Jeffersonian philosophy of government as a collection of “obsolete ideas.” In Germany he was arrested several times for subversive activities. He was a perfect ideological fit with Lincoln’s own political philosophy and was just the man Lincoln wanted to outline the rules of war for his administration.

The Lieber Code paid lip service to the notion that civilians should not be targeted in war, but it contained a giant loophole: Federal commanders were permitted to completely ignore the Code if, “in their discretion,” the events of the war would warrant that they do so. In other words, the Lieber Code was purely propaganda.

The fact is, the Lincoln government intentionally targeted civilians from the very beginning of the war. The administration’s battle plan was known as the “Anaconda Plan” because it sought to blockade all Southern ports and inland waterways and starving the Southern civilian economy. Even drugs and medicines were on the government’s list of items that were to be kept out of the hands of Southerners, as far as possible.

As early as the first major battle of the war, the Battle of First Manassas in July of 1861, federal soldiers were plundering and burning private homes in the Northern Virginia countryside. Such behavior quickly became so pervasive that on June 20, 1862 – one year into the war – General George McClellan, the commanding general of the Army of the Potomac, wrote Lincoln a letter imploring him to see to it that the war was conducted according to “the highest principles known to Christian civilization” and to avoid targeting the civilian population to the extent that that was possible. Lincoln replaced McClellan a few months later and ignored his letter.

Most Americans are familiar with General William Tecumseh Sherman’s “march to the sea” in which his army pillaged, plundered, raped, and murdered civilians as it marched through Georgia in the face of scant military opposition. But such atrocities had been occurring for the duration of the war; Sherman’s March was nothing new.

In 1862 Sherman was having difficulty subduing Confederate sharpshooters who were harassing federal gunboats on the Mississippi River near Memphis. He then adopted the theory of “collective responsibility” to “justify” attacking innocent civilians in retaliation for such attacks. He burned the entire town of Randolph, Tennessee, to the ground. He also began taking civilian hostages and either trading them for federal prisoners of war or executing them.

Jackson and Meridian, Mississippi, were also burned to the ground by Sherman’s troops even though there was no Confederate army there to oppose them. After the burnings his soldiers sacked the town, stealing anything of value and destroying the rest. As Sherman biographer John Marzalek writes, his soldiers “entered residences, appropriating whatever appeared to be of value . . . those articles which they could not carry they broke.”

After the destruction of Meridian Sherman boasted that “for five days, ten thousand of our men worked hard and with a will, in that work of destruction, with axes, sledges, crowbars, clawbars, and with fire…. Meridian no longer exists.”

In The Hard Hand of War historian Mark Grimsley argues that Sherman has been unfairly criticized as the “father” of waging war on civilians because he “pursued a policy quite in keeping with that of other Union commanders from Missouri to Virginia.” Fair enough. Why blame just Sherman when such practices were an essential part of Lincoln’s entire war plan and were routinely practiced by all federal commanders? Sherman was just the most zealous of all federal commanders in targeting Southern civilians, which is apparently why he became one of Lincoln’s favorite generals.

In his First Inaugural Address Jefferson said that any secessionists should be allowed to “stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.” But by 1864 Sherman would announce that “to the petulant and persistent secessionists, why, death is mercy.” In 1862 Sherman wrote his wife that his purpose in the war would be “extermination, not of soldiers alone, that is the least of the trouble, but the people” of the South. His loving and gentle wife wrote back that her wish was for “a war of extermination and that all [Southerners] would be driven like swine into the sea. May we carry fire and sword into their states till not one habitation is left standing.”

The Geneva Convention of 1863 condemned the bombardment of cities occupied by civilians, but Lincoln ignored all such restrictions on his behavior. The bombardment of Atlanta destroyed 90 percent of the city, after which the remaining civilian residents were forced to depopulate the city just as winter was approaching and the Georgia countryside had been stripped of food by the federal army. In his memoirs Sherman boasted that his army destroyed more than $100 million in private property and carried home $20 million more during his “march to the sea.”

Sherman was not above randomly executing innocent civilians as part of his (and Lincoln’s) terror campaign. In October of 1864 he ordered a subordinate, General Louis Watkins, to go to Fairmount, Georgia, “burn ten or twelve houses” and “kill a few at random,” and “let them know that it will be repeated every time a train is fired upon.”

Another Sherman biographer, Lee Kennett, found that in Sherman’s army “the New York regiments were . . . filled with big city criminals and foreigners fresh from the jails of the Old World.” Although it is rarely mentioned by “mainstream” historians, many acts of rape were committed by these federal soldiers. The University of South Carolina’s library contains a large collection of thousands diaries and letters of Southern women that mention these unspeakable atrocities.

Shermans’ band of criminal looters (known as “bummers”) sacked the slave cabins as well as the plantation houses. As Grimsley describes it, “With the utter disregard for blacks that was the norm among Union troops, the soldiers ransacked the slave cabins, taking whatever they liked.” A routine procedure would be to hang a slave by his neck until he told federal soldiers where the plantation owners’ valuables were hidden.

General Philip Sheridan is another celebrated “war hero” who followed in Sherman’s footsteps in attacking defenseless civilians. After the Confederate army had finally evacuated the Shenandoah Valley in the autumn of 1864 Sheridan’s 35,000 infantry troops essentially burned the entire valley to the ground. As Sheridan described it in a letter to General Grant, in the first few days he “destroyed over 2200 barns . . . over 70 mills . . . have driven in front of the army over 4000 head of stock, and have killed . . . not less than 3000 sheep. . . . Tomorrow I will continue the destruction.”

In letters home Sheridan’s troops described themselves as “barn burners” and “destroyers of homes.” One soldier wrote home that he had personally set 60 private homes on fire and opined that “it was a hard looking sight to see the women and children turned out of doors at this season of the year.” A Sergeant William T. Patterson wrote that “the whole country around is wrapped in flames, the heavens are aglow with the light thereof . . . such mourning, such lamentations, such crying and pleading for mercy [by defenseless women]… I never saw or want to see again.”

As horrific as the burning of the Shenandoah Valley was, Grimsley concluded that it was actually “one of the more controlled acts of destruction during the war’s final year.” After it was all over Lincoln personally conveyed to Sheridan “the thanks of the Nation.”

Sherman biographer Lee Kennett is among the historians who bend over backwards to downplay the horrors of how Lincoln waged war on civilians. Just recently, he published an article in the Atlanta Constitution arguing that Sherman wasn’t such a bad guy after all and should not be reviled by Georgians as much as he is. But even Kennett admitted in his biography of Sherman that:

Had the Confederates somehow won, had their victory put them in position to bring their chief opponents before some sort of tribunal, they would have found themselves justified…in stringing up President Lincoln and the entire Union high command for violations of the laws of war, specifically for waging war against noncombatants.

Sherman himself admitted after the war that he was taught at West Point that he could be hanged for the things he did. But in war the victors always write the history and are never punished for war crimes, no matter how heinous. Only the defeated suffer that fate. That is why very few Americans are aware of the fact that the unspeakable atrocities of war committed against civilians, from the firebombing of Dresden, the rape of Nanking, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to the World Trade Center bombings, had their origins in Lincoln’s war. This is yet another reason why Americans will continue their fascination with the War for Southern Independence.

Tesla Employee Turned Whistleblower Says Cartel Using US Factory to Traffic Drugs

Free Thought Project – by John Vibes

Former Tesla employee Karl Hansen has gone public this week, with allegations that the company’s battery factory in Nevada has connections to Mexican drug cartels, and is being used as a base of operations to traffic drugs. Hansen said that he was fired after he told management at the company about how a number of employees were involved with drug trafficking. Hansen also says that management at the company intimidated him and told him not to bring his allegations to police.  

“I never expected that my employment with such a major public company would lead to uncovering such issues, and am disturbed by Tesla’s highly unusual response to those like me who investigated them. I am also very disturbed by Tesla’s failure to respect the privacy of its own employees,” Hansen said in a statement.

Hansen said that the company “went so far as to install specialized router equipment within its Nevada Gigafactory designed to capture employee cell phone communications and/or retrieve employee cell phone data.”

Tesla responded to the allegations with a statement suggesting that they tried to follow up with Hansen’s claims, but was unable to substantiate anything, but did not address his reason for termination.

The statement read:

“Mr. Hansen’s allegations were taken very seriously when he brought them forward. Some of his claims are outright false. Others could not be corroborated, so we suggested additional investigative steps to try and validate the information he had received second-hand from a single anonymous source. Because we wanted to be sure we got this right, we made numerous attempts to engage further with Mr. Hansen to understand more about what he was claiming and the work that he did in reaching his conclusions. He rejected each of those attempts, and to date has refused to speak with the company further. It seems strange that Mr. Hansen would claim that he is concerned about something happening within the company, but then refuse to engage with the company to discuss the information that he believes he has.”

Hansen says that the DEA and the sheriff’s office of Storey County notified the company that one of its employees “may be a participant in a narcotics trafficking ring involving the sale of significant quantities of cocaine and possibly crystal methamphetamine at the Gigafactory on behalf of a Mexican drug cartel from Sonora Mexico.”

Hansen claims that when he heard about the DEA investigation, he urged Tesla to report his findings to them, but they refused.

However, the Storey County Sheriff says that they have no record of that happeningand it is not standard operating procedure for the DEA to notify a person’s employer when they are under investigation. Also, if there was a discussion between the DEA and Tesla executives, it is unlikely that many employees at the company would be made aware of the details.

Hansen says that Tesla is attempting to hide anything bad that is happening within the business so shareholders and investors remain optimistic.

“I hope that shining a light on Tesla’s practices will cause appropriate governmental action against the company and its management,” Hansen said.

This week, Tesla’s stock dropped considerably after news surface that they were being subpoenaed by the SEC.

NOAA interactive map reveals almost two MILLION acres of land is on fire across the United States

Daily Mail

The full extent of the wildfires ravaging the West Coast of the US has been revealed.

An experimental map created by the NOAA shows the current movement of the smoke across the U.S.

The West Coast of the United States is shrouded in smoke from the 110 large fires (this does not include smaller fires within each complex of fires) that have erupted across the region during this fire season.  

‘Over 1.9 million acres are or have been ablaze, and smoke from these fires have traveled along the west to east jet stream and are bringing that smoke across the country as far as the East Coast,’ NASA said.

‘Six new large fires were reported in Idaho, Nevada and Oregon over the weekend and eight large fires have been contained including the Ferguson Fire near Yosemite National Park in California. ‘

Click here to access an interactive map.

The experimental map created by the NOAA shows the current movement of the smoke across the U.S. This map (10am EDT on August 20, 2018) comes from NOAA and is an experimental model showing both upper level on near-surface smoke.

The weather concerns in the area include warmer than average temperatures that will continue in the west with diurnal winds and marginal overnight humidity recoveries.

The years with the most acres burned by wildfires have some of the hottest temperatures, an Associated Press analysis of fire and weather data found.

As human-caused climate change has warmed the world over the past 35 years, the land consumed by flames has more than doubled.

Experts say the way global warming worsens wildfires comes down to the basic dynamics of fire. Fires need ignition, oxygen and fuel. And what’s really changed is fuel – the trees, brush and other plants that go up in flames.

National Preparedness Level is at the highest level of 5.

This level includes national mobilization heavily committed to fighting active fires and taking measure to support these geographic areas that are on fire.

Smoke from these fires have traveled along the west to east jet stream and are bringing that smoke across the country as far as the East Coast.

‘Hotter, drier weather means our fuels are drier, so it’s easier for fires to start and spread and burn more intensely,’ said University of Alberta fire scientist Mike Flannigan.

It’s simple, he said: ‘The warmer it is, the more fire we see.’

Federal fire and weather data show higher air temperatures are turbocharging fire season.

Over 1.9 million acres are or have been ablaze, and smoke from these fires have traveled along the west to east jet stream and are bringing that smoke across the country as far as the East Coast

The five hottest Aprils to Septembers out West produced years that on average burned more than 13,500 square miles (35,000 square kilometers), according to data at the National Interagency Fire Center and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration .

That’s triple the average for the five coldest Aprils to Septembers.

The Western summer so far is more than 3 degrees Fahrenheit (1.7 degrees Celsius) warmer than the 20th century average. California in July logged its hottest month in 124 years of record-keeping.

The five years with the most acres burned since 1983 averaged 63.4 degrees from April to September. That’s 1.2 degrees warmer than average and 2.4 degrees hotter than the years with the least acres burned, AP’s data analysis shows.

In California, the five years with the most acres burned (not including this year) average 2.1 degrees warmer than the five years with the least acres burned.

A degree or two may seem like not much, but it is crucial for fuel.

The hotter it is, the more water evaporates from plants.

When fuel dries faster, fires spread more and burn more intensely, experts said.

For every 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit that the air warms, it needs 15 percent more rain to make up for the drying of the fuel, Flannigan said.

Fuel moisture levels in California and Oregon are flirting with record dry levels, NOAA western regional climate center director Tim Brown said.

And low humidity is ‘the key driver of wildfire spread,’ according to University of Colorado fire scientist Jennifer Balch who says the Western U.S. soon will start to see wildfires of 1 million acres (1,562 square miles).

Veteran Colorado hotshot firefighter Mike Sugaski used to consider 10,000-acre (16-square-mile) fires big, now he fights ones 10 times that or more.

‘You kind of keep saying, ‘How can they get much worse?’ But they do,’ Sugaski said.

The number of U.S. wildfires hasn’t changed much over the last few decades, but the area consumed has soared.

‘The year 2000 seemed to be some kind of turning point,’ said Randy Eardley, the fire center’s chief spokesman.

From 1983 to 1999, the United States didn’t reach 10,000 square miles burned annually. Since then, 10 years have had more than 10,000 square miles burned, including 2017, 2015 and 2006 when more than 15,000 square miles burned.

Some people who reject mainstream climate science point to statistics that seem to show far more acres burned in the 1930s and 1940s. But Eardley said statistics before 1983 are not reliable because fires ‘may be double-counted, tripled-counted or more.’

Nationally, more than 8,900 square miles (23,050 kilometers) have burned this year, about 28 percent more than the 10-year average as of mid-August. California is having one of its worst years.

Scientists generally avoid blaming global warming for specific extreme events without extensive analysis, but scientists have done those extensive examinations on wildfire.

John Abatzgolou of the University of Idaho looked at forest fires and dry conditions in the Western United States from 1979 to 2015 and compared that to computer simulations of what would be expected with no human-caused climate change.

He concluded that global warming had a role in an extra 16,200 square miles (42,000 square kilometers) of forests burning since 1984.

A study of the 2015 Alaska fire season – the second biggest on record – did a similar simulation analysis, concluding that climate change from the burning of coal, oil and gas increased the risk of the fire season being that severe by 34 to 60 percent.

One 2015 study said globally fire seasons are about 18.7 percent longer since 1979. Another study that year says climate change is increasing extreme wildfire risk in California where wildfires already are year-round.

Also, drought and bark beetles have killed 129 million trees in California since 2016, creating more fuel.

Contrary to fire scientists, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke this week told Breitbart radio that ‘what’s driving’ increased wildfires is an increase in fuel.

He said the government has ‘been held hostage by environmental terrorist groups’ that oppose clearing dead trees that they say provide wildlife habitat. Zinke, however, has acknowledged that climate change was a factor in worsening wildfires.

Two French rivers disappear underground in large cracks and sinkholes: The Doubs River (Franche-Comté) and the Risle (Normandy)

Strange Sounds

The Doubs river flows normally in Franche-Comté, France. But since about a week or so, the river has totally dried up over a length of more than 1 km, between Pontarlier and Morteau, although precipitation has been abundant this winter and spring. The river has disappeared, and with it, the fauna and flora. Everything is dead. Two weeks ago, 13km of the Risle River in Normandy also disappeared underground in a large crater. According to geologists, this unprecedented event is due to large cracks and craters in the riverbed.

The cave of Remonot is located near the village of Morteau along the Doubs. Dedicated to the Virgin Mary, this Chapel-Cave contains miraculous water and is visited each year on August 15, 2018, day of the Assumption. But during this year’s annual pilgrimage, the cave was dry! The first time ever!

Nearby, the Doubs river is also dry. No water, just pebbles and dead fish.

Residents explain they have never seen this before. The river has disappeared over more than 1 kilometer, and with it, the fauna and flora. Everything is dead. The president of a local fishing association reports having experienced such a situation during the severe drought of 1976. But now, it’s different… there was a lot of snow and water this winter. This situation is totally insane and ANOMALOUS!

Now, geologists say the river disappearance is due to large cracks in the karstic riverbed, which empty the river underground like a siphon. It is perhaps the important spring floods that washed away the sediment patches that blocked the holes and fissures.

How Long Can You Store Food In The Freezer? (Infographic)

As long as you have power available, a freezer is one of the best ways to preserve food. Just about anything can be frozen – meat, vegetables, dairy products, bread and most other staples.

Your freezer isn’t a miracle machine, though. To keep food in good condition for a long time you need to follow a few simple rules. Get it wrong and you’re likely to find your food deteriorating – and maybe even unsafe to eat.

Some general recommendations for freezer storage are:

  • To safely store food for long periods of time, use a deep freezer that will keep the temperature at 0ºF or lower. It’s also a good idea to buy a freezer thermometer and check the temperature frequently.
  • Keep the freezer as full as possible. A half-empty freezer will spill cold air every time the door is opened, letting warm air in. It has to cool that down once the door is closed again. In a full freezer there’s less space for warm air to take up. If there’s a lot of empty space in yours, put in empty cardboard boxes – they’ll help keep cold air inside. If you have a chest freezer this isn’t a problem, because the denser cold air will stay inside when you open the lid.
  • Don’t load a lot of food into your freezer at once. That will overload the freezer’s cooling capacity, and raise the temperature inside. It will also take longer to freeze the food you just put in, and slow freezing reduces the quality of food. Don’t put in more than three pounds per cubic foot of freezer space every day.

  • Don’t pack food in too tightly. The water in it will expand as it freezes, so close-packed food can get damaged. On the other hand, if you want to freeze something more quickly put it against the side of the freezer.
  • Before freezing your food, pack it in freezer bags. These protect against water vapor and leaks, they’re easy to seal, and you can write on them what the contents are. Good marking will make it quicker and easier to find what you want, so you won’t need to keep the door open – and letting cold air out – while you peer at bags to see what’s in them.
  • If there is a black-out, your food will stay frozen for between two and four days, as long as you protect the freezer immediately. Leave it unopened; keep it in a cool place and insulate it by covering it with blankets or quilts (but make sure not to cover the compressor). This two to four-day rule applies to a full freezer; if your freezer is only half full then it might only keep food frozen for about 24 hours.
  • If during a power outage the food in your freezer becomes thawed, you might still be able to refreeze it. If it’s only partially thawed and still has ice crystals, and the freezer temperature never went above 40ºF, it should be safe to refreeze. Otherwise, eat it right away.

Food can remain frozen indefinitely and technically be safe to eat, as bacteria will not grow. However, over time all frozen food will deteriorate in quality and become unappetising to eat when defrosted. The time it takes for :How Long Can You Store Food In The Freezer?

US Route 11: The Road That Healed the Nation, America’s Main Street

Appalachian Magazine

The American Civil War ended on a random battlefield in Central Virginia in April 1865.  The conflict which raged for half-a-decade had cost both sides far more than either could have imagined in the days leading up to the war and left deep and bitter wounds which are still visible today.

Interestingly, many of the young men who had fault alongside Generals Lee, Grant and Stonewall Jackson during this horrific conflict were only in their 50s when the first Model T Fords began driving off the assembly line.  

Between 1908 and 1927, Ford would build some 15 million Model T cars and a nation which had only a generation earlier been fighting on horseback in a bloody civil war stood at the dawn of a new era.

In the early days of the automobile, however, travel throughout nation was hazardous, wrought with confusion and navigation proved difficult.  In the South, animosity against Yankees was still extraordinarily strong and in the North, Dixieland was seen as some distant place far beyond the reach of the common man.  The average American simply did not travel beyond his or her county and neighboring states were often seen as foreign and exotic lands.

Very few reliable highway maps existed, as each state – and even county – had its own set of road numbers and routes.  Often, drivable roads in one community would end at the county-line of a neighboring locality, rendering the increasingly popular automobile useless for coast to coast travel.

In an effort to create a national standard for highway travel and usher in a new era in which the North and South were connected via drivable routes, in October 1925 a Federal board of transportation officials published a report proposing a new numbering system for national routes.

The report noted, “The clear designation of important routes of travel will be a distinct advantage not only in eliminating confusion, but also in furthering systematic and continuous construction.”

The States would quickly approve of the idea and America’s US Highway numbered routes were born.

Among the original numbered US routes created in 1926 was US Route 11, which would do something almost unprecedented — link New York to Mississippi; providing travel from the New York / Quebec border in the north to the Mississippi / Lousiana state line in the south.

In 1929, the route would be extended southward, continuing into New Orleans, Louisiana.

GOP Activist Investigating Hillary Clinton’s Lost Emails Found Dead — Apparent Suicide by Black Plastic Bag… BIG UPDATE!

Peter W. Smith, a Republican political activist and financier from Chicago who mounted an effort to obtain former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s emails from Russian hackers, died on May 14 after asphyxiating himself in a hotel room in Rochester, Minn., according to local authorities. He was 81 years old.
Mr. Smith’s body was found by a hotel clerk in the Aspen Suites hotel, located across the street from the Mayo Clinic, according to a Rochester Police Department report. An associate of Mr. Smith said that he had recently visited the clinic. A representative for the facility wouldn’t confirm if Mr. Smith was a patient.
Mr. Smith died about 10 days after an interview with The Wall Street Journal in which he recounted his attempts to acquire what he believed were thousands of emails stolen from Mrs. Clinton’s private email server. He implied that Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, then serving as the senior national security adviser to presidential candidate Donald Trump, was aware of his efforts…
…The police report said Mr. Smith was found by a hotel clerk with a plastic bag around his head attached tightly with black rubber bands. Mr. Smith “left documentation on why he committed suicide, medical records, his written obituary, and life insurance” on a table in his room, the report said.MORE HERE: https://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2018/08/gop-activist-investigating-hillary-clintons-lost-emails-found-dead-apparent-suicide-by-black-plastic-bag/

Alex Jones Demands Right to Congressional Hearing

“You may not like me, you may despise my politics, but I am the canary in the coal mine”

Paul Joseph Watson | Infowars.com –  August 10, 2018

Alex Jones has asked to appear in front of a Congressional hearing to defend his right to free speech and expose the horrific precedent Big Tech has set by banning Infowars.
In a series of tweets, the radio host demanded his right to respond to Democrat lawmakers who have been lobbying Facebook and Google to ban Infowars for months.
“I respectfully ask Congress to allow me to face my accusers,” he tweeted. “There have been multiple hearings where the banning of Infowars has been discussed & lobbied for by Democrats. Now it’s happened. I want to attend an open session where I am allowed to defend my right to free speech.”

I respectfully ask Congress to allow me to face my accusers. There have been multiple hearings where the banning of Infowars has been discussed & lobbied for by Democrats. Now it’s happened. I want to attend an open session where I am allowed to defend my right to free speech.
7:01 AM – 10 Aug 2018

Jones is referring to hearings last month during which Democratic Congressman Ted Deutch (D-FL). demanded Facebook shut down Infowars.
At a hearing last year, Democratic Congressman Mike Quigley also pressured Twitter to remove Infowars content, a request with which they complied.
Jones also demanded his right to “not to be ‘unpersoned’ by giant corporations who act like monopolies” and to “expose how this is all about moving towards a Communist Chinese-style ‘social credit score’ dystopia.”

Julian Assange To Tell Congress Who Really Leaked DNC Emails

Posted: 10 Aug 2018 04:41 PM PDT

Julian Assange To Tell Congress Who Really Leaked DNC Emails
Date: August 10, 2018Author: Nwo Report

The US Senate Intelligence Committee has called on Julian Assange to testify about who really leaked the DNC emails prior to the 2016 election. 
Assange is the only man who knows who really supplied the Podesta-Clinton emails to Wikileaks. According to Assange’s lawyers, he is seriously considering taking them up on the offer.
In a letter delivered to his residence in the Ecuadorian embassy in London, committee chairman Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) requested that Assange make himself available for a closed interview “at a mutually agreeable time and location.”
Assange could be about to blow the whole Russian interference narrative to pieces.

— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) August 8, 2018

RT reports:  WikiLeaks’ legal team said that they “are considering the offer but testimony must conform to a high ethical standard.”
Assange fled to the Ecuadorian embassy in London in 2012, seeking asylum from possible extradition to the US, where he faced indictment under the Espionage Act for publishing leaked government documents. Since his de-facto house arrest in the embassy, WikiLeaks has continued to draw controversy, publishing then-candidate Hillary Clinton’s emails and leaked emails from the Democratic Party’s internal servers in 2016.
Over a month before the Senate Intelligence Committee’s letter arrived in London, ten Democrat senators sent a petition to Vice President Mike Pence, demanding that he press the Ecuadorian government to revoke Assange’s asylum.

Pence visited Ecuador shortly after, and met with the country’s president, Lenin Moreno. After meeting with Pence, Moreno reportedly mulled evicting Assange from the embassy. Assange had been granted asylum by Moreno’s predecessor, and the new president described the Australian journalist as an “inherited problem.”
Human RIghts Watch has called on the UK government to allow Assange to leave his embassy home without the threat of extradition to the US, where he could face life in prison. In 2016, a UN working group found that Assange’s stay in the embassy amounted to an “arbitrary deprivation of liberty.”

Lincoln was a War Criminal: it’s a FACT!

Lincoln PortraitPresident Lincoln, who is considered by most historians (or at least the politically correct ones) to be the best and certainly the most important U.S. President, wielded power in a fashion never seen before nor since. The fact that he died as a martyr is why history has viewed him in such a kind albeit sanitized light.

During the Civil War, Lincoln continuously circumvented the law and in many cases suspended the Constitution altogether. In doing so, Lincoln denied the rights of citizens he was sworn to protect. He suspended the writ of Habeas Corpus, closed courts by force, and arrested citizens and elected officials without cause. Lincoln also raised troops without the consent of Congress, closed-down newspapers whose writers displayed any dissent to U.S. policy.

Lincoln’s troops razed the South and doomed to poverty–generations of Southerners for many years to come. General Sherman‘s “March to the Sea” was nothing more than a marauding rampage filled with robbery, rape, and murder. These men were less soldiers on a military mission and more common thugs on a crime spree. Northern armies brought war to women, children, and privately held property as a matter of official policy (rather than as so-called “collateral damage”).

Lincoln ordered the arrest of Baltimore police chief George P. Kane, police commissioner Charles Howard, as well as fellow commissioners: William H. Gatchell, John W. Davis, and Charles D. Hinks. Baltimore Mayor George W. Brown was arrested and sent to Fort McHenry. The men were incarcerated because they dared to publicly disagree with Lincoln and refused to carry-out the President’s tyrannical orders.

Baltimore was placed under federal control and a military police force was formed.

Both the continents of Europe and South America ended the practice of slavery, and unlike the United States government–they did so without murdering 700,000 of their own citizens. The abhorrent practice of slavery could have and would have been ended in this country, without ever firing a shot.

Contrary to popular belief (as perpetuated by government schools), slavery was a national institution, it was not unique to the South. Upon his inauguration, Lincoln could have freed the slaves in the Northern states which would have put severe diplomatic pressure on the South. However, Lincoln besides being a tyrant was also an incredible hypocrite. Lincoln’s multitude of personal letters show his outright disgust for the black man and his truly racist views.

Consider a few rarely spoken facts:

  • -Northern General U.S. Grant continued to hold a slave for nearly a year after the war. In fact, it took an act of Congress to finally free the man from Grant’s possession.
  • -Northern General Tecumseh Sherman was arrested many times for brutally abusing several of his slaves.
  • Conversely, Confederate General Robert E. Lee freed all of his slaves prior to the start of the war. That act by the military leader of the South truly displays that for the Confederacy, the war was only about states’ rights and a just rebellion against tyranny–not about slavery!

Lincoln’s War (otherwise known as the Civil War), was much less about freeing oppressed blacks and much more about the federal government exerting complete control over all citizens. Lincoln’s actions were a direct assault upon the wishes of our founding fathers. Lincoln cared very little for the rule of law, as evidenced by his numerous suspensions of U.S. Constitutional rights.

I believe that had Lincoln survived his second term–his place in this nation’s history would be seen in a much different light. Furthermore, had the Civil War ended with a different outcome, Lincoln and many of his generals would have been deservedly tried as war criminals.

Of course, the victors write the history books–even when they tell lies.

LINCOLN’S CRIMES

1. Lincoln waged a war that cost the lives of 620,000 Americans. Including the murder of 50,000 innocent Southern civilians.

2. He arrested several thousand Marylanders suspected of Southern sympathies, including 30 members of the State legislature, a US Congressman representing Maryland, the mayor and police commissioner of Baltimore, and most of the Baltimore city council. These political detainees were imprisoned in Fort McHenry and Point Lookout without trial, in many cases, for several years.

3. He suspended the writ of habeas corpus without the consent of Congress (as required by the Constitution).

4. He illegally shut down and confiscated the printing presses of dozens of newspapers that had spoken out against him.

5. He re-instated and summarily promoted an Army officer who had been court martialed and cashiered by the US Army for war crimes.

6. He even had an arrest warrant issued for the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court because said justice refused to back his illegal actions.

7. Chief Justice Roger B Taney ruled that Lincolns actions were illegal, criminal and unconstitutional.

8. He invaded the South without the consent of Congress as required by the Constitution.

9. He blockaded Southern ports without a delclaration of war, as required by the Constitution.

10. He imprisoned without trial, hundreds of newspaper editors and owners and censored all newspaper and telegraph communication.

11. He created two new states without the consent of the citizens of those states in order to artificially inflate the Republican Partys electoral vote.

12. He ordered Federal troops to interfere with Northern elections to assure his Parties victories.

13. He confiscated private property, including firearms, in violation of the Second Amendment; and effectively gutted the Tenth and Ninth Amendments as well.

14. He had his Generals attack US cities full of women and children and burn them to the ground.

Still not convinced? Well let’s look at some really really hard facts that will be hard for you to swallow. The follow was written by Thomas J. DiLorenz.

One hundred thirty-six years after General Robert E. Lee surrendered at Appomattox, Americans are still fascinated with the War for Southern Independence. The larger bookstores devote an inordinate amount of shelf space to books about the events and personalities of the war; Ken Burns’s “Civil War” television series and the movie “Gettysburg” were blockbuster hits; dozens of new books on the war are still published every year; and a monthly newspaper, Civil War News, lists literally hundreds of seminars, conferences, reenactments, and memorial events related to the war in all 50 states and the District of Columbia all year long. Indeed, many Northerners are “still fighting the war” in that they organize a political mob whenever anyone attempts to display a Confederate heritage symbol in any public place.

Americans are still fascinated by the war because many of us recognize it as the defining event in American history. Lincoln’s war established myriad precedents that have shaped the course of American government and society ever since: the centralization of governmental power, central banking, income taxation, protectionism, military conscription, the suspension of constitutional liberties, the “rewriting” of the Constitution by federal judges, “total war,” the quest for a worldwide empire, and the notion that government is one big “problem solver.”

Perhaps the most hideous precedent established by Lincoln’s war, however, was the intentional targeting of defenseless civilians. Human beings did not always engage in such barbaric acts as we have all watched in horror in recent days. Targeting civilians has been a common practice ever since World War II, but its roots lie in Lincoln’s war.

In 1863 there was an international convention in Geneva, Switzerland, that sought to codify international law with regard to the conduct of war. What the convention sought to do was to take the principles of “civilized” warfare that had evolved over the previous century, and declare them to be a part of international law that should be obeyed by all civilized societies. Essentially, the convention concluded that it should be considered to be a war crime, punishable by imprisonment or death, for armies to attack defenseless citizens and towns; plunder civilian property; or take from the civilian population more than what was necessary to feed and sustain an occupying army.

The Swiss jurist Emmerich de Vattel (1714-67, author of The Law of Nations, was the world’s expert on the proper conduct of war at the time. “The people, the peasants, the citizens, take no part in it, and generally have nothing to fear from the sword of the enemy,” Vattel wrote. As long as they refrain from hostilities themselves they “live in as perfect safety as if they were friends.” Occupying soldiers who would destroy private property should be regard as “savage barbarians.”

In 1861 the leading American expert in international law as it relates to the proper conduct of war was the San Francisco attorney Henry Halleck, a former army officer and West Point instructor whom Abraham Lincoln appointed General-in-Chief of the federal armies in July of 1862. Halleck was the author of the book, International Law, which was used as a text at West Point and essentially echoed Vattel’s writing.

On April 24, 1863, the Lincoln administration seemed to adopt the precepts of international law as expressed by the Geneva Convention, Vattel, and Halleck, when it issued General Order No. 100, known as the “Lieber Code.” The Code’s author was the German legal scholar Francis Leiber, an advisor to Otto von Bismarck and a staunch advocate of centralized governmental power. In his writings Lieber denounced the federal system of government created by the American founding fathers as having created “confederacies of petty sovereigns” and dismissed the Jeffersonian philosophy of government as a collection of “obsolete ideas.” In Germany he was arrested several times for subversive activities. He was a perfect ideological fit with Lincoln’s own political philosophy and was just the man Lincoln wanted to outline the rules of war for his administration.

The Lieber Code paid lip service to the notion that civilians should not be targeted in war, but it contained a giant loophole: Federal commanders were permitted to completely ignore the Code if, “in their discretion,” the events of the war would warrant that they do so. In other words, the Lieber Code was purely propaganda.

The fact is, the Lincoln government intentionally targeted civilians from the very beginning of the war. The administration’s battle plan was known as the “Anaconda Plan” because it sought to blockade all Southern ports and inland waterways and starving the Southern civilian economy. Even drugs and medicines were on the government’s list of items that were to be kept out of the hands of Southerners, as far as possible.

As early as the first major battle of the war, the Battle of First Manassas in July of 1861, federal soldiers were plundering and burning private homes in the Northern Virginia countryside. Such behavior quickly became so pervasive that on June 20, 1862 – one year into the war – General George McClellan, the commanding general of the Army of the Potomac, wrote Lincoln a letter imploring him to see to it that the war was conducted according to “the highest principles known to Christian civilization” and to avoid targeting the civilian population to the extent that that was possible. Lincoln replaced McClellan a few months later and ignored his letter.

Most Americans are familiar with General William Tecumseh Sherman’s “march to the sea” in which his army pillaged, plundered, raped, and murdered civilians as it marched through Georgia in the face of scant military opposition. But such atrocities had been occurring for the duration of the war; Sherman’s March was nothing new.

In 1862 Sherman was having difficulty subduing Confederate sharpshooters who were harassing federal gunboats on the Mississippi River near Memphis. He then adopted the theory of “collective responsibility” to “justify” attacking innocent civilians in retaliation for such attacks. He burned the entire town of Randolph, Tennessee, to the ground. He also began taking civilian hostages and either trading them for federal prisoners of war or executing them.

Jackson and Meridian, Mississippi, were also burned to the ground by Sherman’s troops even though there was no Confederate army there to oppose them. After the burnings his soldiers sacked the town, stealing anything of value and destroying the rest. As Sherman biographer John Marzalek writes, his soldiers “entered residences, appropriating whatever appeared to be of value . . . those articles which they could not carry they broke.”

After the destruction of Meridian Sherman boasted that “for five days, ten thousand of our men worked hard and with a will, in that work of destruction, with axes, sledges, crowbars, clawbars, and with fire…. Meridian no longer exists.”

In The Hard Hand of War historian Mark Grimsley argues that Sherman has been unfairly criticized as the “father” of waging war on civilians because he “pursued a policy quite in keeping with that of other Union commanders from Missouri to Virginia.” Fair enough. Why blame just Sherman when such practices were an essential part of Lincoln’s entire war plan and were routinely practiced by all federal commanders? Sherman was just the most zealous of all federal commanders in targeting Southern civilians, which is apparently why he became one of Lincoln’s favorite generals.

In his First Inaugural Address Jefferson said that any secessionists should be allowed to “stand undisturbed as monuments of the safety with which error of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.” But by 1864 Sherman would announce that “to the petulant and persistent secessionists, why, death is mercy.” In 1862 Sherman wrote his wife that his purpose in the war would be “extermination, not of soldiers alone, that is the least of the trouble, but the people” of the South. His loving and gentle wife wrote back that her wish was for “a war of extermination and that all [Southerners] would be driven like swine into the sea. May we carry fire and sword into their states till not one habitation is left standing.”

The Geneva Convention of 1863 condemned the bombardment of cities occupied by civilians, but Lincoln ignored all such restrictions on his behavior. The bombardment of Atlanta destroyed 90 percent of the city, after which the remaining civilian residents were forced to depopulate the city just as winter was approaching and the Georgia countryside had been stripped of food by the federal army. In his memoirs Sherman boasted that his army destroyed more than $100 million in private property and carried home $20 million more during his “march to the sea.”

Sherman was not above randomly executing innocent civilians as part of his (and Lincoln’s) terror campaign. In October of 1864 he ordered a subordinate, General Louis Watkins, to go to Fairmount, Georgia, “burn ten or twelve houses” and “kill a few at random,” and “let them know that it will be repeated every time a train is fired upon.”

Another Sherman biographer, Lee Kennett, found that in Sherman’s army “the New York regiments were . . . filled with big city criminals and foreigners fresh from the jails of the Old World.” Although it is rarely mentioned by “mainstream” historians, many acts of rape were committed by these federal soldiers. The University of South Carolina’s library contains a large collection of thousands diaries and letters of Southern women that mention these unspeakable atrocities.

Shermans’ band of criminal looters (known as “bummers”) sacked the slave cabins as well as the plantation houses. As Grimsley describes it, “With the utter disregard for blacks that was the norm among Union troops, the soldiers ransacked the slave cabins, taking whatever they liked.” A routine procedure would be to hang a slave by his neck until he told federal soldiers where the plantation owners’ valuables were hidden.

General Philip Sheridan is another celebrated “war hero” who followed in Sherman’s footsteps in attacking defenseless civilians. After the Confederate army had finally evacuated the Shenandoah Valley in the autumn of 1864 Sheridan’s 35,000 infantry troops essentially burned the entire valley to the ground. As Sheridan described it in a letter to General Grant, in the first few days he “destroyed over 2200 barns . . . over 70 mills . . . have driven in front of the army over 4000 head of stock, and have killed . . . not less than 3000 sheep. . . . Tomorrow I will continue the destruction.”

In letters home Sheridan’s troops described themselves as “barn burners” and “destroyers of homes.” One soldier wrote home that he had personally set 60 private homes on fire and opined that “it was a hard looking sight to see the women and children turned out of doors at this season of the year.” A Sergeant William T. Patterson wrote that “the whole country around is wrapped in flames, the heavens are aglow with the light thereof . . . such mourning, such lamentations, such crying and pleading for mercy [by defenseless women]… I never saw or want to see again.”

As horrific as the burning of the Shenandoah Valley was, Grimsley concluded that it was actually “one of the more controlled acts of destruction during the war’s final year.” After it was all over Lincoln personally conveyed to Sheridan “the thanks of the Nation.”

Sherman biographer Lee Kennett is among the historians who bend over backwards to downplay the horrors of how Lincoln waged war on civilians. Just recently, he published an article in the Atlanta Constitution arguing that Sherman wasn’t such a bad guy after all and should not be reviled by Georgians as much as he is. But even Kennett admitted in his biography of Sherman that:

Had the Confederates somehow won, had their victory put them in position to bring their chief opponents before some sort of tribunal, they would have found themselves justified…in stringing up President Lincoln and the entire Union high command for violations of the laws of war, specifically for waging war against noncombatants.

Sherman himself admitted after the war that he was taught at West Point that he could be hanged for the things he did. But in war the victors always write the history and are never punished for war crimes, no matter how heinous. Only the defeated suffer that fate. That is why very few Americans are aware of the fact that the unspeakable atrocities of war committed against civilians, from the firebombing of Dresden, the rape of Nanking, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, to the World Trade Center bombings, had their origins in Lincoln’s war. This is yet another reason why Americans will continue their fascination with the War for Southern Independence.

For almost three years, medical marijuana was legalized in various regions of the state of Nevada. However, recreational marijuana sales only started in specific areas of the state at the beginning of July 2017 because of a law that took effect at that time; this law renders persons that are at least 21 years old and bear valid identification legally capable of purchasing the drug in those regions for recreational purposes. However, as a recent video shared with the Free Thought Project shows, police, lots of them, are still willing to attack and assault people for having the plant.

65 Years Ago Today, the CIA Conspired with the UK to Overthrow Iran on Behalf of Big Oil

Today marks the 65th anniversary that the west carried out a coup in Iran that destabilized the county by overthrowing the country’s democratically elected leader, Mohammad Mossadegh, and installed a CIA groomed dictator. What was once considered a conspiracy theory is now a fact as the government has since admitted to carrying out Operation Ajax that was planned by the CIA in conjunction with MI6 in the UK to exploit the Iranian people and steal their oil on behalf of the  Anglo-Iranian Oil Company (AIOC) – the British state-owned oil company established in 1908 with this objective in mind and the forerunner of today’s global oil conglomerate BP.

U.S. Mercenaries Want To Privatize War In Afghanistan

Erik Prince is launching a cable news tour to convince Trump to privatize the war in Afghanistan. ThinkProgress: “Growing impatient with the conflict in Afghanistan as it stretches into its 17th year, President Trump is becoming more receptive to appeals to privatize the war, advisers to the president told NBC News. The privatization proposal would involve replacing soldiers with mercenaries who report to a special U.S. envoy, who would in turn report directly to the president. The idea is the brainchild of Blackwater founder Erik Prince, who claims the scheme will save billions of dollars and help quickly resolve the conflict. Military experts disagree, disputing the purported savings and raising alarm about the ethical dilemmas, most notably the potential lack of accountability, sparked by relying on private contractors to fight U.S. wars. Last summer, Prince pitched his idea to hand over Afghanistan to mercenaries in a PowerPoint presentation to Trump advisers as the White House mulled its next move in the region. The administration ultimately decided to authorize a troop surge instead. Now, in a move that coincides with the one-year anniversary of the Trump administration’s troop surge announcement, Prince told NBC News he’s launching an ‘aggressive’ media campaign to convince Trump to reconsider his proposal. Prince, who is the brother of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, told NBC News he is confident he’ll be able to schedule time to speak more with Trump officials about his ideas in the coming days.”

14 Massive Monoliths Of The Ancient World

14 Massive Monoliths Of The Ancient World


By
Ivan

Monoliths (aka menhirs or obelisks) are upright stones that have been used to create impressive structures around the world. These great monuments can appear on their own, or as part of a group (e.g. stone circles, temples, tombs etc).
The erection of these monoliths mainly took place in the Neolithic, later continuing into the Bronze Age. They were typically hewn from the land and raised on sacred sites that our ancestors deemed worthy of honoring. Their size varied considerably, but their shape is generally uneven and squared, often tapering towards the top.
A number of ancient Egyptian obelisks are known to have survived, plus the “Unfinished Obelisk” found partly hewn from its quarry at Aswan. Had it have been erected, it would have been the tallest megalith in the world! These obelisks are now dispersed around the world, and fewer than half of them remain in Egypt.

It was said that many of the ancient obelisks were used to mark the passing of royal personages (e.g. the Karnack Obelisk is associated with King Thutmose I, and the Stella of Axum with the Queen of Sheba). Even the Great Menhir of Er-Grah is built next to an ancient tomb suggesting it is a grave marker worthy of a significant hero or king from the Neolithic era.

It is also said the pyramids and obelisks might have been inspired by previously overlooked astronomical phenomena connected with sunrise and sunset: the zodiacal light and sun pillars respectively.

A Chart Exposing How The Bilderberg Group Controls The Entire World

A Chart Exposing How The Bilderberg Group Controls The Entire World

06/12/2018 By Stillness in the Storm Leave a Comment

(Arjun Walia) If you haven’t already heard by now, yes, a small group of people and the corporations they run completely control all aspects of human life, whether it be health, food, or finance, media and education, each major area and the resources that go into it are dictated and selected by this group. The crazy thing about it is the fact that nobody really knows who these people are, but it’s becoming more clear that our political system, and those who make decisions and set global policy every year, are always in attendance.

by Arjun Walia, May 29th, 2018
This group is extremely secretive, and has been meeting for decades while the public had little knowledge of what was going on and who was in attendance. The world did not really become aware of this group until only a few short years ago, and since then, alternative media and multiple journalists have been swarming attendees and seeking out where these meetings are held each year, while mainstream media completely ignores it.
Attendees continue to keep their silence and not really speak about it, which only leads to more attention and more of a feeling that something suspicious is going on right under our noses.
We are talking about the major financial players, representatives of all the big banks, corporations and various sectors of government and politics, intelligence agencies and more. Below is  a little quote from 1991, given by David Rockefeller which really gives the reader a good idea of what might be going on there.
The transcript is from a 1991 Bilderberg group meeting in Baden, Germany, proving how deluded Rockefeller’s views truly were. Bill Clinton also attended this meeting along with many other members of the elite class, I’m sure. Rockefeller stated:

“We are grateful to the Washington Post, The New York Times, Time Magazine and other publications whose directors have attended our meetings and respected their promises of discretion for almost forty years. It would have been impossible for us to develop our plan for the world if we had been subject to the bright lights of publicity during those years. But the world is now more sophisticated and prepared to march toward a world government… The supranational sovereignty of an intellectual elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national auto-determination practiced in past centuries.” (source)

Rockefeller was one of the main people who have been on the Steering committee at Bilderberg. Within recent years, because of the growing awareness that has surrounded this mysterious group, they’ve been forced to publicly put out who is attending, when and where.

Is this where the global elite set their plans for the conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses? According to Edward Bernay’s (one who roamed in these circles), it’s “An important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – (Propaganda, 1928)
If we keep looking for one individual every four years to change the world, it’s not going to work… Politics has become a giant distraction, a form of entertainment, and a battle between the global elite who comprise of a few different groups that are playing a game designed by those higher up than them.


This kind of organization, along with others like the Council on Foreign Relations, are the hub of the Deep State that now controls politics, global geopolitical policy, and basically, the future and what direction it takes. Who knows just how many attendees are involved in the plans of those who actually run and organize these events, but they are no doubt , if anything, being used to push it, just like we are.
This all stops the day we decide acknowledge that we are all co-creating this experience and there’s really nothing to fear here. Sure, these groups may dictate policy and decide what direction the world may go, and not really have all of humanities (the collective) best interests in hand, but that’s ok. Why is it ok? Because the day we wake up and realize we are the ones being used to fuel the system that no longer resonates with us, is the day it starts changing, and that’s exactly what’s happening right now.
As Business Insider pointed out a few years ago, the graph “shows the members’ connections to a ton of corporations, charities, policy groups and media. Everyone from Eric Schmidt to George Soros is a member. There are tons of conspiracy theories about the group, including that they control the world economy. We took the findings with a grain of salt–after all, it’s easy to trace an individual to a corporation and the graph doesn’t specify what influence the member wielded.”
Click on the chart below to expand and zoom in.  It’s a great map that shows all of the connections between the attendees and the world.

Here Are NASA’s Unreleased Apollo Mission Images They Don’t Want You To See

Here Are NASA’s Unreleased Apollo Mission Images They Don’t Want You To See

By
IvanThe idea that NASA has encountered Alien life during the Apollo missions has aroused the curiosity of thousands of experts in the field for decades.
Ever since NASA successfully landed on the moon, people have wondered whether or not the astronauts on the lunar surface—and during their trip to the moon—witnessed things they couldn’t rationally explain.
In other words; Alien spaceships and structures on the moon’s surface.
These questions were quickly turned into a conspiracy theory, and people who argue that the Apollo astronauts witnessed inexplicable things during their trip to the moon were called out as conspiracy nuts.
To date, the United States is the only country to have successfully conducted manned missions to the surface of Moon, with the last Apollo mission departing the lunar surface in December 1972.

Apollo 11 Moon Landing. Image credit: NASA
For nearly half a century—46 years to be precise—space agencies around the globe have avoided going to the moon.
But why?
Was it due to extremely high costs? Risks? Or is it that the moon is simply not an interesting place?
The truth is that today, 46 years after the last successful moon landing we have much better technology than we had 46 years ago.
Money isn’t an issue, for we always find money for things we want and need.
The moon is perhaps one of the most interesting places in the solar system, and numerous experts have claimed it is imperative for humans to establish a colony on the lunar surface.
So, what’s keeping us from landing on the moon?
A man called Bob Dean may answer the above question.
Mr. Dean is retired US Army Command Sergeant Major who served for 28 years.

He has given a number of interesting lectures, providing a wealth of information about not only the moon landings, Apollo missions, but also corroborating what numerous whistleblowers have said in the past.
During the Barcelona Exopolitics Summit, on July 25, 2009, Mr. Dean released a set of amazing images. He also explained the Apollo missions, and what astronauts encountered unlike anyone before him.
During the summit, Mr. Dean released to the public a set of fascinating images supposedly captured by astronauts of the Apollo 12 mission, including an image showing mysterious spacecraft several hundred feet in diameter.
During the lecture, Mr. Dean recounts how on the morning of the 2nd of February 1961, World War III almost began, and a fleet of unidentified flying objects were to blame:
It appears that on the morning of the 2nd of February 1961, World War III almost started. It was involved in the flyover of large numbers of circular metallic craft, flying in formation, very obviously under intelligent control,” said Mr. Dean during the lecture.
Mr. Dean continued: “They would fly out of the Soviet sector in the Warsaw Pact toward the U.S. in formation at a high speed and at a very high altitude. They would turn north over the English Channel over the southern coast of England and then they would disappear off of NATO radar over the Norwegian Sea.”

The Soviets went on red alert. The NATO forces went on red alert. Everybody was, you know … fingers on their triggers, thumbs poised above those red buttons. And World War III was just moments away,” explained Mr. Dean. “Within 20 minutes, it was all over. The objects flew, turned north and disappeared off of radar.”

Soon after the mysterious sighting that nearly triggered WWIII, a study of the occurred took place.

Experts concluded how “…planet Earth and the human race had been under some kind of survey or observation going on for hundreds, if not thousands, of years. They concluded, in 1964, that there were at least four different groups coming here, observing us, surveying us, analyzing us, closely watching us, what we were up to, what we were doing. They concluded that it did not appear to be a military threat involved, because their repeated demonstrations of incredibly advanced technology demonstrated to us that, if they had been hostile or malevolent, there was absolutely nothing we could do. If they were evil in their intent and they were hostile toward us, it would have been over a long time ago.”

“…the conclusion was there were four different groups involved,” explained Mr. Dean.

This image comes from the Apollo 12 mission, Apollo Systems 12, roll number 50, negative number 7348. A mysterious object was sighted by Apollo astronauts as they were orbiting the moon.

The image seen below was taken by Astronaut Neil Armstrong. While the astronauts were looking out of the window of their little craft, this cigar-shaped object flew by.

The next image, says Mr. Dean, shows a mysterious disc-shaped object with several hundred feet in diameter. It was snapped while astronauts made their way to the surface of the moon.

The next two images were taken by Apollo Astronauts when they were overflying the so-called Lansberg crater. According to Mr. Dean; “The astronauts in orbit above the Moon were particularly fascinated by the Lansberg crater. They had been given a special designation to take pictures of Lansberg, because the crater, which they named as the Lansberg, had things going on that were very anomalous. There was construction going on. There were gigantic facilities in the crater up there. So they were specifically delegated and assigned to photograph Lansberg to see if they could figure out what the hell was going on down there. While they were looking at Lansberg, this object happened to express interest in them and flew by. Now this line is an artificial line that was drawn to show you the … it gave the direction that this object was going. This is a good-size object flying past the Apollo Lander.”

Are these mysterious spots alien structures on the lunar surface?

Mr. Dean continued showing evidence gathered by astronauts from the Apollo 13 mission. The below image, says Mr. Dean, where taken as Apollo 13 astronauts were traveling to the moon when a number of things began happening. Some strange objects were appearing outside the windows of the spacecraft, so the Apollo 13 Astronauts grabbed their Hasselblad cameras and started taking pictures of what they had seen.
This photograph below shows three different objects.

Another image of the Apollo 13 ‘UFO’ encounter, as noted by Mr. Dean.

New California Law Limits How Much Water People Can Use – Including Monitoring Toilet Flushes, Showers

New California Law Limits How Much Water People Can Use – Including Monitoring Toilet Flushes, Showers
Date: June 7, 2018Author: Nwo Report

California Governor Jerry Brown signed a new law that would severely restrict the amount of water people can use inside of their homes.

The government of California will now be monitoring people’s toilet flushes, showers and laundry use.
Under the new water use limits, each person will barely have enough ‘daily water allowance’ to do one load of laundry and take an 8 minute shower. 
This also covers outdoor use so no watering your lawns or gardens, peasants. 
CBS Sacramento reported:

There will soon be more focus on flushes and scrutiny over showers with a new law signed in by the governor.
California is now the first state in the nation to enact tough new water-efficiency standards. The controversial rules limit how many gallons a person can use inside their home per day.
“So that everyone in California is at least integrating efficiency into our preparations for climate change,” said Felicia Marcus, Chair of the State Water Resources Control Board.
So, what are the new rules?
In 2022, the new indoor water standard will be 55 gallons per person, per day. by 2030, it will fall to 50 gallons.
Just how many gallons do household chores take?
An 8-minute shower uses about 17 gallons of water, a load of laundry up to 40, and a bathtub can hold 80 to 100 gallons of water.
Greg Bundesen with the Sacramento Suburban Water District says they already assist customers.
“We offer toilet rebates, we offer complementary showerheads, we offer complementary faucets,” he said.
The new laws also require water districts to perform stress tests of their water supply and curb loss due to leaks.
“Some people may not be aware that you’re going to use a lot more water in a bath and you wouldn’t shower and it’s our job to make sure they’re informed,” Bundesen said.
Water districts who don’t comply face fines up to $10,000 a day.
The ultimate goal is to make conservation a way of life in California. Outdoor water use is also covered by the new laws.

California is sliding into the abyss of totalitarian rule.
bill proposed in California would make the distribution of plastic straws illegal unless requested by a patron, with up to a $1,000 fine and jail time.
Now they’re monitoring toilet flushes and showers.
What’s next? Only allowing people to use one square of toilet paper per use just as Sheryl Crow used to push?
Back in 2007, far left singer Sheryl Crow wanted to control how much toilet paper people use. “One square per restroom visit, except, of course, on those pesky occasions where two to three could be required,” said Sheryl Crow.
The left wants to bring us back to the dark ages. They will bring greater human misery to the masses claiming it is helping the environment.
Jerry Brown is more interested in monitoring how many times the people of California flush their toilets than he is monitoring the US-Mexico border where MS-13 gang members, drug cartels and illegals are spilling over into his state. Let that sink in.

Magnetic Quickening ~ Meg Benedicte ~ 4 June 2018

Source: Meg Benedicte

Strong solar winds entered the earth plane this weekend, shaking volcanos and earthquakes into action. The stargate portal is active and alert, humming and vibrating with galactic light frequencies…opening a sacred space for personal transformation. The so-called ‘Event’ is an up-leveling process involving recurring waves of solar winds/gamma/plasma/diamond light infusions that catalyze genetic recoding and light body activation.

The gatekeepers and gridworkers have been busy these past few days, as the geomagnetic field continues to shift and reset. I woke up several times and observed the earth angels balancing and stabilizing the polarized grids during all this solar activity. The increasing yin energies are altering the magnetic fields, sweeping the planetary consciousness with new heart-felt awareness.

As the veils of mind-control dissolve away, it becomes easier to see invented propaganda programming. The failed illusion of superiority and patriarchal domination is slipping away. We now see the intentional agenda running behind the scenes. As the scales of denial lift, the lower mind awakens to the false narrative of separation.

The more we embrace each other and our connection to a benevolent universe, the more abundance flows in our lives. Loving connection is the keycode to spiritual support. ‘Good vs. evil’ is a construct of divisiveness. It is a trap, a mechanism of disconnection. First we connect within, to the depth of our essence, to the truth of our divinity. Then we mirror our divinity to others and vice versa. All of creation is divine in the eyes of Creator.

As we prepare for the Solstice Stargate activation, we will meet this Saturday, June 9th with our Lightworker family and dive into the complexities of 5D relationships. How do we relate to each other in a neutral, non-polarized field of collaboration? Imagine a world without polarized karmic relationships!

As Lightworkers on this planet, we have the power to influence the direction of change. When we form a ‘group mind’ with heart-felt intentions, we plant the seeds for a loving, harmonious earth family. We are the co-creators of our bountiful future. Join other Lightworkers during these stargate initiations as we contribute to the great awakening.

I will join Manette on Saturday, June 9th in our New Earth Central show to prepare for the powerful stargate initiations into 5D living. If you cannot attend the ‘live’ broadcast, the replay will be available at the event link. The recording is accessible within minutes upon completion of the show broadcast.

Bill Cosby Feeling Disoriented After Jury Slips Conviction Into His Verdict

Bill Cosby Feeling Disoriented After Jury Slips Conviction Into His Verdict

Bill Cosby guilty; faces up to 30 years imprisonment
Posted on April 26, 2018 by Dr. Eowyn

Bill Cosby (l) and Obama celebrating Ted Kennedy’s birthday, 2009.
Justice, at last.
Page Six reports, April 26, 2018, that nearly 14 years after actor/comedian Bill Cosby drugged and molested a woman 30 years his junior, a jury found him guilty of all charges in his sex assault retrial.
His first trial last year ended in a hung jury after jurors were unable to reach a verdict.
Cosby, 80, showed no emotion and looked down at the table in front of him as the jury forewoman read aloud “guilty” to all three felony counts of aggravated indecent assault. He now faces up to 10 years behind bars on each of the three counts. 
Cosby was allowed to remain free on $1 million bail despite a fight from prosecutors who said he was a flight risk and someone with “limitless wealth” and a private plane. The argument prompted an outburst from Cosby, who stood up and yelled, “He doesn’t have a plane, you a–hole! That shows what you know!” Cosby was ordered to surrender his passport and stay in Montgomery County pending his sentencing date, which was not set.
Cosby’s chief accuser, Andrea Constand, 45, took the stand to publicly relay for a second time her recollection of the horrifying 2004 attack. The former Temple University basketball administrator told jurors she took three blue pills from Cosby, which she thought were herbal, to help with stress while at his Cheltenham, Pennsylvania home in January 2004. She said her mouth became “cottony,” and her legs “rubbery,” and was helped by the then-67-year-old Cosby to a couch before she slipped into darkness.
Constand testified: “I was kind of, um, jolted awake, and felt Mr. Cosby on the couch behind me, and my vagina was being penetrated quite forcefully. I felt my breasts being touched. And he took my hand, and placed my hand on his penis, and masturbated himself with my hand. And I was not able to do anything about it.”
In what proved to be a turning point for prosecutors, five other Cosby accusers were allowed to testify at this trial — supermodel Janice Dickinson, Heidi Thomas, Chelan Lasha, Janice Baker-Kinney and Maude Lise-Lotte Lublin. They each testified that Cosby had slipped them pills and sexually assaulted them.
Cosby has been accused of drugging and sexually assaulting some 60 women, not a single one of whom is black.

InJoy!
Another earthquake in a strategic location? Perhaps another strike for the Light Forces.

Might this earthquake be some of the “underwater” activity Fulford mentioned?
If you haven’t seen this “island paradise” yet, check it out. It’s something else. (Or was.) We featured this obscene pedo-playground in previous posts. An estate isn’t an estate without a fake cow.

Massive Fire Reportedly Seen On Private Island Owned By Billionaire, And Sexual Predator, Jeffrey Epstein

April 7, 2018
Sources have reported that infamous billionaire and registered sex offender Jeffrey Epstein’s private island located in the Caribbean has recently caught on fire:
The cause of the fire is unknown, but some are speculating it may have started as the result of a relatively small 4.9 magnitude earthquake that struck yesterday just off the coast:
Others say it was intentionally created to destroy evidence related to Epstein’s latest legal troubles.

Windows like reptilian eyes?
BACKGROUND
Last month, numerous outlets reported on Jeffrey Epstein’s salacious Florida trial being granted a stay by the appeals court.
According to a March 14th article on JDJournal:
“The famed sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein is set to go to trial but his legal team is pushing to get the trial delayed. The Palm Beach billionaire settled lawsuits against him from three teenage victims for $5.5 million. Epstein claims that he was persuaded to settle the claims by attorney Bradley Edwards and former attorney Scott Rothstein.
“The case between Epstein and Edwards was slated to begin Tuesday (3/13/18) in the Palm Beach County Circuit Court. After a round of appeals filed by Epstein’s attorneys Scott Link and Kara Rockenbach, the 4th District Court of Appeal granted a stay in the case.”
JDJournal also reported that since the trial was delayed, Epstein “has been spending most of his time on his private island in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”
The island, which can be found on Google Maps, is officially named ‘Little St. James Island’:
Located on the southwest portion of the island is a strange temple-like structure and opening to a possible nefarious underground facility.
Notable public figures, such as former President Bill Clinton, have been reported to travel with Epstein on his ‘Lolita Express’ to various places, including this private island.
According to a 2016 article on the New York Post:
“Epstein has spent the bulk of his adult life cultivating relationships with the world’s most powerful men. Flight logs show that from 2001 to 2003, Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s private plane, dubbed ‘The Lolita Express’ by the press, 26 times. After Epstein’s arrest in July 2006, federal tax records show Epstein donated $25,000 to the Clinton Foundation that year.”
Another case, detailed in Wikipedia, involves Epstein as well as Prince Andrew from Britain and prominent American lawyer Alan Dershowitz:
“In January 2015, a 31-year-old American woman, Virginia Roberts, alleged in a sworn affidavit that at the age of 17, she had been held as a sex slave by Epstein. She further alleged that he had trafficked her to several people, including Prince Andrew and Harvard Law professor Alan Dershowitz. Roberts also claimed that Epstein and others had physically and sexually abused her.
“Roberts alleged that the FBI may have been involved in a cover-up. She said she had served as Epstein’s sex slave from 1999 to 2002 and had recruited other under-age girls. Prince Andrew, Epstein and Dershowitz all denied having had sex with Roberts. Dershowitz took legal action over the allegations. A diary purported to belong to Roberts was published online. Epstein entered an out-of-court settlement with Roberts, as he has done in several other lawsuits.
“The BBC television series ‘Panorama’ planned an investigation of the scandal. As of 2016 these claims had not been tested in any law court.”
Kevin Spacey, Chris Tucker, Katie Couric, George Stephanopoulos, and Woody Allen are some other celebrities that have reportedly traveled and partied with Epstein in the past.

Dead at 42: Broward County Sheriff deputy who questioned Parkland school shooting’s gun control agenda

Dead at 42: Broward County Sheriff deputy who questioned Parkland school shooting’s gun control agenda
Posted on April 9, 2018 by Dr. Eowyn
Reblogged from Memory Hole Blog
Second Amendment Proponent, Criticized Marjory Stoneman’s Gun Control Cavalcade

By James F. Tracy
Sometime on or around April 1, 2018 Broward County Sheriff’s Deputy Jason Fitzsimons, 42 years old and in excellent state of mind and health, called in sick to his job. Shortly thereafter Fitzsimons was found dead on his sofa. There has been a complete “news blackout” of this curious and untimely death.
Deputy Fitzsimons wasn’t just any law enforcement officer. Unlike many of his peers, he took to social media to question the potential agenda behind the February 14 Marjory Stoneman High School mass shooting, suggesting that the event was being used to promote the Democratic Party’s gun control platform in anticipation of the 2018 midterm elections. And recent personnel decisions involving public officials indicate (e.g. here and here), an unwritten law of taxpayer-funded institutions is that employees disavow and steer clear of “conspiracy theories” that may call their superiors’ motives into question.
One post found on Fitzsimons’ Facebook page depicts the Parkland massacre’s main spokesperson, David Hogg, in National Socialist regalia, with the caption, “We will March Until We Disarm Every American.”

Fitzsimons’ Facebook page has since been “scrubbed” of any 2018 posts, which would of course include those that may be calling the Parkland shooting or its aftermath into question.
The circumstances surrounding Deputy Fitzsimons’ death are sketchy. The official cause has been attributed to cancer, yet this is contradicted by an obituary found at obittree.com, stating that he “died unexpectedly.” The “died unexpectedly” phrase is one morticians and/or loved ones sometimes employ when for one reason or another they are reluctant to disclose the true cause of death, as in the case of a suicide.
Yet as the above obituary makes clear, Fitzsimons does not seem as if he would have been a likely suicide candidate. The law enforcement officer “lived life to the fullest and enjoyed spending time loving on his many friends [sic],”the document reads. Fitzsimons was also the life of the party, according to the obituary’s author(s). “He dreamed to one day be Batman or Kenny Chesney, and you could often find him singing at a local karaoke night or taking selfies while under the disguise of the caped crusader.” Further, the deceased also had a spiritual devotion “in his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.”
If Fitzsimons in fact died of cancer, the onset must have been extremely sudden. Neither the obituary nor accompanying memorials reference any struggle with the disease, but instead point to his inspiring presence while expressing astonishment at the abruptness of his passing.
Aside from numerous friends attesting to his warm disposition in their memorials, Deputy Fitzsimons appeared to be in excellent health, as various photos suggest.

Following the December 14, 2012 Sandy Hook School massacre numerous law enforcement officers with intimate knowledge of the event’s investigation either retired or died unexpectedly. These included Connecticut State Police Major William Podgorski, who passed on, following “a brief undisclosed illness.”As Sandy Hook researcher Tony Mead observed in 2014,

From Douglas Cottle, who died Sept 29, 2012, at age 62 to Michael Bellmore, who died May 3, 2014 at age 27, more questions than answers seem to arise. The Connecticut State Police Commander, the Connecticut State Police Commissioner, the Western Connecticut State Police Commander as well as the Connecticut State Medical Examiner have all been eliminated from the story either by retiring or death. What better way to cover up any possibility of ever disclosing the truth ? What better way to perpetuate conspiracy theories ?

Those who received word via Twitter of Fitzsimons’ untimely death have expressed similar doubt and suspicion on the vague and unusual circumstances.
As is suggested in the aftermath of other recent mass shooting events, Fitzsimons simply may have possessed too much information, was at the wrong place at the wrong time, and/or asked sensitive questions of his peers and superiors on the specifics of the Parkland shooting. It is beyond dispute that the sheriff’s deputy had become uncomfortably outspoken on the February 14 event.
The record reflects that Deputy Fitzsimons was a wonderful individual and friend who cared about “truth” and the US Constitution. Perhaps these concerns are no longer desired by the management of certain policing agencies. There is indeed ample room for suspicion.

Another Actor Calls Out Satanic Hollywood Pedophiles

Posted: 17 Aug 2018 06:43 AM PDT

Another Actor Calls Out Satanic Hollywood Pedophiles

It’s truly shocking just how many revelations have come to light with regards to the physical and sexual abuse of children within the realm of the global elite.

The big four areas where this activity seems to be most prevalent nowadays is within politics, the Vatican, the military industrial complex and inside of Hollywood. Within each section, there are numerous examples to pull from.

In politics, especially within the last couple of years, information is hitting the mainstream like it never has before, one example would be the fact that an NBC news report implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a massive pedophile ring in the heart of the State Department, another would be multiple ex-high ranking political officials claiming that both the Clintons engage in sex with minors, pointing towards their close relationship with Jeffrey Epstein (who also has Royal Family connections).

Epstein is now a registered sex offender. When it comes to the Vatican, there are always disturbing acts going on. Right now, the Pope’s right-hand man, George Pell, is in court for sexual assault, and a massive pedophile ring has been exposed where hundreds of boys were tortured and sexually abused, Pope Benedict’s brother was at the forefront of that controversy.

As far as the military industrial complex goes, Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney grilled Donald Rumsfeld on DynCorp about it, a private military contractor with ties to the trafficking of women and children.

Years later, a top U.S. General who was the liaison between DynCorp and the U.S. Military was implicated in the sexual assault of teenage girls. The list goes on and on, and it’s a long one. Oh yeah, let’s not forget about PizzaGate

Keep in mind, above are only a few examples in each sector but there are many more to choose from.

When it comes to Hollywood, perhaps here is where we’ve seen the most revelations, and it goes far beyond Harvey Weinstein and his sexual assault of women, but into ritualistic-type practices where children are not only tortured and sexually abused but also killed (sacrificed).

An ex-Director of the FBI, Ted Gunderson, was one of many who investigated these crimes. He found shocking evidence of elite level pedophile rings using satanic practices, with the people involved being connected to higher powers.

We’re talking about the owners of major mainstream media networks, political ‘leaders’, and the people who have some of the largest influence with regards to our planet and the direction it takes.

In Hollywood, the door was kicked open by Corey Feldman, who hasn’t named any names (he said he wanted to raise $10 million for the production of a documentary that would expose everything) but has been very open about the fact that the biggest problem in Hollywood is child pedophilia.

Perhaps the latest revelations (hard to tell because they are always happening), come from Smallville actress, Allison Mack, who has been outed as a member of a cult who worked in a management position.

She worked for a man named Keith Raniere, who ran a company that supposedly offered “executive success programs,” whatever that means. He is accused of raping girls as young as 12, imprisoning a woman for 18 months and more, and is currently in federal custody in New York.

Clare Bronfman was also recently arrested and tied to the same cult as the Smallville actress. Clare’s a philanthropist, youngest daughter of the billionaire philanthropist Edgar Bronfman, who was president of the World Jewish Congress and also closely connected to the Rothschilds.

There are many people involved in this, and someone has to take the blame, perhaps to protect the others?

Keep in mind, Allison was likely brainwashed, but who really knows? Many of the victimizers are also victims themselves, but that’s something society fails to see at the moment. Right now, we’re constantly judging and punishing, instead of really looking into things deeper in order to solve the real problems here. Abuse begets abuse.

This and many other points were recently brought up in the video below, by Isaac Kappy, an actor and writer known for his work on Terminator Salvation, Thor, Beerfest, Fanboys, among others.

Shortly after he released these videos, mainstream outlets like TMZ (establishment mouthpieces) and others, instantly accused him of chocking Paris Jackson, apparently, he’s being investigated by the Los Angeles police for that, as well as accusing Seth Green of pedophilia.

In the video below, he calls out more names, like Tom Hanks, and director Steven Spielberg, among others.

Hard to tell what’s really going on, which is why for the most part, I stick to what people actually say and what comes out of their own mouths, and try to present that to the public.

Below is a tweet from Sarah Ruth Ashcraft, a supposed [url=http://humansarefree.com/search/label/Project MKUltra]MK Ultra child sex slave victim[/url],

Sarah Ruth Ashcraft‏ @SaRaAshcraft

This is me at 13, the age I was when @tomhanks purchased me from my father for sex as a dissociated #mindcontrol doll. I wonder how much he paid? I wonder how much $$$ my father made for breaking my mind & selling my child body throughout my life. Will I ever get to know?

10:14 AM – 23 Jul 2018

Things can really get confusing, and we can never really know the truth or exactly who is involved. That being said, we know this is a reality, and to turn a blind eye and not really address nor investigate is unethical.

Furthermore, the silence of the accused doesn’t help, if one is innocent, one should be able to openly come forth and speak openly in their defence, especially if there is no evidence… Or is there?

Steven Spielberg is a pedophile, yup, see how easy that was Corey, and I didn’t need 10 million dollars, I just said it… When you’re talking about really elite levels, the name of the game is blackmail, so, they want something on you that they can hold over your held so they can basically own you and tell you what to do… And they film it… and then, they own you. So, that’s what runs the whole system basically, they want compromised people because they’re easy to control.

“And a lot of people, they’ll go along with it and do whatever just for fame and money…Some people are just like, really into the evil shit… Tom Hanks is a pedophile… It’s time that this comes out into the open because we are going to change the way everything works, because at the top levels, these people are just sick and psycho. Look into the Rothschilds family

“The higher you go the more sick it gets… This is what really hurts about the situation, because a lot of people are kind of born into this, they grow up in it, they’re abused and through the abuse especially as a child you can break someones subconscious mind, if you’re not aware of any of this stuff, look into [url=http://humansarefree.com/search/label/Project MKUltra]MK Ultra[/url].” – Isaac Kappy (from the video below)

He is not the only Hollywood actor to mention MK Ultra, Roseanne Barr once said, “MK Ultra rules in Hollywood.”

You can watch the full video below. He goes on to talk about Seth Green, McCauley Culkin, and many more. How they grow up in this system, then comes the money and the fame, and then they themselves end up repeating exactly what they went through. He expressed remorse for them, and a feeling of empathy.

He has been connected to the ‘QAnon’ phenomenon by the mainstream media, but they did not do an adequate job in covering the story. You can read more about that here.

https://youtu.be/w42xrPAG08I

An Important Question To Ask is, Why Would They Be Lying?

Again, the reality of this type of behaviour is well-documented and has been exposed, but with regards to who may be involved is not. It seems like a lot of people, and some of the world’s greatest ‘humanitarians’ might be engaged in those ‘good’ activities in order to cover for what really goes on behind the scenes.

The fact that so many people in Hollywood, like Bryan Singer (director of the x-man series) and more, have all faced legal issues is another important thing to consider.

The point is, this is happening, and we have to talk about it because the trafficking and abuse of women and children is happening in these areas and they have no voice, even if they are starting to speak out more and more.

The sad thing about it is, with all of the censorship on the internet, nobody is really seeing this. But at the same time, they are, because mainstream media always seems to respond and give a completely different narrative in order to protect their interests. We’ve seen this in multiple realms, RussiaGate is a great example, PizzaGate was another.

This is why the global elite are shutting down alternative media completely and are still in the process.

Why would Hollywood actors pretty much end their careers by speaking out like this? They’re within the industry, they have connections, and they are directly in the middle of these circles. Only a few are brave enough to speak out. Sure, Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg may not be involved, but then again they may be.

It’s time for all to come out in the open for a public discussion, it just makes it more suspicious that they don’t.

It’s time to ask ourselves, who are we idolizing? Why do we idolize them? What type of activities are our ‘leaders’ engaged in and do they really care for the best interests of the human race?

Truth is hitting the world, in all areas where humanity attention seems to be focused, and it’s going to keep on coming, it can’t be stopped.

“No central authority” should be able to block your speech; knowledge needs to be decentralized

Posted: 17 Aug 2018 05:33 AM PDT

censorshipMike Adams, the Health Ranger and founder of Natural News, is on a mission. Having himself been the victim of unfair censorship by Google, YouTube and other “tech giants,” he set out to create a viewing platform which reestablishes true freedom of expression. Real.video was launched just weeks ago, and is already enjoying excellent growth, appealing as it does to free thinkers who believe in the right to speak their minds without fear of recrimination.

Adams believes that the environment of censorship that we currently find ourselves in is a “daily drain on the human spirit.” As such, though he does not feel he has the right and does not want the power to determine what information should be viewable and what should be banned, he believes that Real.video is necessary to protect his own free speech and that of others.

Ultimately, Adams believes that even Real.video should become obsolete. In a recent video posting on the site he explained, “Ultimately there should be no central authority; there should be no server; there should be no central location that can block your speech. And, frankly, the only reason I even built this was because we had to because we’re all being censored off Facebook and YouTube and elsewhere. But, ultimately, I would like to see a world in which Real.video in its current rendition, as a centrally server-hosted platform, literally becomes obsolete because it is a decentralized system.” (Related: YouTube censorship RAMPAGE running amok as all the good people keep getting terminated.)

Protecting the most diverse array of legal speech

Adams is particularly interested in being responsive to the needs and feelings of his audience. As such, after receiving incisive commentary from the Real.video viewership, he made a brave decision which will open him up to the full wrath of the government and mainstream media outlets.

Sponsored solution from the Health Ranger Store: Lab-verified Nascent Iodine solution is a dietary supplement that provides your body with supplemental iodine to help protect your thyroid during radiation exposure. Nuclear accidents such as Fukushima (or nuclear war) can expose your body to radioactive iodine-131, a dangerous radioisotope. Pre-loading your system with stable iodine occupies the iodine receptor sites on your organs, causing your body to naturally expel radioactive iodine you may have been exposed to through air, food, water or milk products. This defensive strategy is recommended by nearly all health authorities, worldwide, including the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. Discover more at this link.

In his post, Adams explained that certain videos are banned in overseas countries, and these have to be blocked on Real.video in those countries. For example, in certain Middle Eastern countries it is illegal to speak out against the Prophet Mohammed, so that type of content would have to be blocked there. And the same would apply to posts by holocaust deniers in Germany, where such content is illegal.

Initially Adams blocked this type of content in the United States, as well. Although it was not banned, it was delisted, which is effectively a shadow ban in which the video does not show up in any search results and is therefore undiscoverable. This raised issues from free speech advocates in the United States, however, since these videos are not blocked in this country.

Having reviewed the feedback, Adams has decided that the only content which will be banned on Real.video is pornography and anything that is illegal. (Editor’s note: The ban also includes Satanism and Satan-worshiping videos for reasons above and beyond human law, extending into spiritual law.)

Adams noted, “In terms of political expression, people questioning history, people questioning reality, we’re not going to ban it unless it’s illegal in America. We’re not going to ban it in America if it’s legal in America. … We protect free speech, including speech that we find offensive, extremist or vulgar, as long as it’s not illegal.”

“We’re here to serve liberty and freedom of speech, and to serve all those people – including myself – who have been heavily banned and censored off of other platforms. That gives myself and our team a very special experience that gives us insight that global elitists and tech elitists don’t understand because they’ve never been banned; no-one’s ever told them no. But we’ve been banned every day. My YouTube channel is gone. I was deplatformed before Alex Jones was deplatformed. That’s on the record. So, we have a very unique perspective and we are thoughtful and we are not afraid to improve policies based on feedback.”

Adams believes that InfoWars was just the first of many targets, and that the tech giants will systematically turn against other independent media targets until they have eradicated them all.

Adams believes in decentralization and hopes that ultimately there will be no need for Real.video or that it might become a decentralized peer-to-peer cloud bandwidth system one day.

Until then, Adams will keep fighting the fine fight for freedom of speech.

Crispr gene “edited” food crops the new wave of GMOs… are they safer or just as dangerous?

Posted: 17 Aug 2018 05:31 AM PDT

crisprA growing segment of the public has made it clear that they do not want to consume GMOs, and you only need to look at the labels touting the non-GMO status of a growing number of foods in the grocery store to see evidence of just how much the masses have awakened to the dangers of genetic modification.

Now, the food industry has found a new way to cut corners, and they’re trying to convince people that this type of genetic editing is somehow a better alternative to the current GMOs.

It’s certainly better for their bottom line, as the costs for developing and marketing the food that results from gene editing are reported to be as much as 90 percent lower than those of traditional genetically modified crops.

One of the more popular approaches to gene editing is CRISPR, which involves transferring an enzyme and RNA molecule into a crop cell. The RNA then finds the targeted DNA strands and binds to them, at which point the enzyme causes a break in the DNA of the cell; the cell then repairs the DNA in a way that alters the gene – if everything goes according to plan – but what happens to those who eat the resultant foods is anybody’s guess.

Biotech firms are hopeful the technology will avoid the negative labels that traditional genetically modified crops have attracted – Frankenfood, anyone? – and they’re hoping that people can be convinced that this approach is somehow different. However, it remains to be seen just how accepting the public and regulators will be.

While the USDA says that gene-edited crops do not meet their criteria for oversight right now, the Court of Justice of the European Union has said that the technique will indeed be subject to their regulations that apply to genetically modified crops. This ruling means that gene editing in Europe will be limited to research; growing commercial crops this way will be illegal there.

The power of the elements: Discover Colloidal Silver Mouthwash with quality, natural ingredients like Sangre de Drago sap, black walnut hulls, menthol crystals and more. Zero artificial sweeteners, colors or alcohol. Learn more at the Health Ranger Storeand help support this news site.

It will also be difficult to convince the public the method is safe. Changing the DNA of crops could create undesirable changes in the food supply, and it is unlikely to be embraced by those who are opposed to genetically modified crops.

Agribusinesses are well aware of this fact, with Cargill’s Food Safety Vice President Randal Giroux admitting that public acceptance is an uncertainty. He said: “We really do want to see gene-editing evolve in the marketplace. We’re watching to see how consumers adopt these products and react to these products.”

What are the consequences of interfering with nature?

Last year, researchers from the Columbia University Medical Center carried out a study that warned the scientific community that Crispr-Cas9 Gene editing can result in unintended mutations in genomes that go undetected.

There is a lot that we still don’t know about the technology, and scientists know essentially nothing about the potential long-term implications of this technique. There is nothing natural about editing the genes of a plant, and once people truly understand what is involved, many will avoid these foods the same way that they avoid GMOs today.

In the meantime, agricultural biotech firms are trying to make the most of the lack of regulation on gene editing in the U.S. as they speed up their development. Some of the foods in the pipeline include tomatoes that take a longer time to spoil, waxy corn with higher yields, apples that do not turn brown, wheat with a lower gluten content, and soybeans that resist drought. These advancements might sound good in theory, but what price will humanity ultimately pay for interfering with nature?

Video Shows Massive Fire Tornado That Killed Redding Firefighter

CBS

REDDING (KPIX 5) — Recently released video from Cal Fire shows the most intense tornado ever in California history that trapped and killed a firefighter in Redding last month.

37-year-old Jeremiah “Jeremy” Stoke was a longtime Redding Fire Department veteran. According to Cal fire, on July 26th, he was driving his truck in northwest Redding and helping evacuate residents from the Carr Fire when he got into trouble.  

Stoke radioed out a mayday call, saying he was getting burned over. Then his transmissions abruptly stopped.

The fire tornado exploded in the middle of what was already a gigantic and devastating wildfire.

The fire vortex was so unusual, Cal Fire investigators are still struggling to understand it.

While it was not the first documented fire tornado in California – a similar event happened at Coffey Park last October, for instance – but it was certainly the most powerful.

The actual vortex is visible in the video released by Cal Fire.

Even for fire researchers like Craig Clements, the director at the SJSU Fire Weather Research Lab, who had seen fire whirls before, it was an extraordinary event.

“You can clearly see the winds going like this and the circulations right here,” said Clements. “It’s an incredible sight.”

The video released by Cal Fire clearly shows the Carr Fire winds and flames moving in opposite directions forming a massive vortex.

The base of the fire tornado was 1,000 feet — the size of three football fields — with winds ranging from 136 to 165 mph, some of the worst in California history.

Peak temperatures inside the vortex rose as high as 2,700 degrees.

The aftermath left behind by the vortex was captured the next day by KPIX cameras.

Clements stressed the tornadoes themselves are not caused by climate change, though climate change may be contributing to more dry brush and fire fuel resulting in more extreme fire conditions.

Menlo Park Fire Chief Harold Schapelhouman notes those conditions are partially a man-made phenomenon.

“There are things we can do. We can go in and mitigate the problem,” said Schapelhouman. “The predictability of what we could say was the norm before is completely out the window.”

He says there’s a need for more off-season controlled burns and vegetation management to help prevent extreme fire events that are becoming more common.

But as fire seasons worsen, Clements says technology is improving and may someday be able to help save lives, detecting fire tornadoes in its earliest stages.

“You can’t predict it, but you could potentially monitor fires with remote-sensing technology,” said Clements.

The SJSU Fire Weather Research Lab has lidar that — similar to how Doppler radar that can track rain and severe weather – can track smoke particles and detect fire vortex formation.

Clements says he can see a future where this technology — which is research grade right now — could be on every fire engine in the field.

UN chief suggests deploying UN-mandated armed forces to protect Palestinians

Posted: 17 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

The protection of Palestinian civilians could be improved by the deployment of UN-mandated armed forces or unarmed observers, a beefed-up UN civilian presence or expanded UN assistance, Secretary-General Antonio Guterres wrote in a report on Friday. The United Nations General Assembly requested the report in a resolution adopted in June that condemned Israel for excessive force against Palestinian civilians and denounced the firing of rockets from Gaza into Israeli civilian areas. The resolution asked for proposals to ensure “the safety, protection and well-being of the Palestinian civilian population under Israeli occupation, including … recommendations regarding an international protection mechanism.”

There are ample warning signs that another serious financial crisis is on the way. These warning signs are being soundly ignored by the majority, though. Perhaps understandably so. After 10 years of near-constant central bank interventions to prop up markets and make stocks, bonds and real estate rise in price — while also simultaneously hammering commodities to mask the inflationary impact of their money printing from the masses — it’s difficult to imagine that “they” will allow markets to ever fall again.

WATCH: Cop Denied Immunity For Killing Unarmed Naked Veteran Suffering from PTSD

MEXICO SEIZES RECORD 50 TONS OF METH FROM SUPERLAB

Published: August 18, 2018

SOURCE: ZEROHEDGE

After locating a massive drug laboratory near the town of Alcoyonqui, in Culiacán, Sinaloa, personnel of the Secretariat of the Navy seized 50 tons of methamphetamine, allegedly from the Sinaloa Cartel, in the most significant drug bust of this kind in the history of Mexico.

According to Sin Embargo News, the Secretariat of the Navy (Semar) said the synthetic drug was discovered in a rustic laboratory and two separate underground bunkers. The military operation, which began on Thursday evening, involved roughly 50 troops. It was only until Friday morning was the size of the cache realized.

A military source said the camp, of about 500 square meters, was operated by the Sinaloa Cartel. The laboratories were divided into four sections for the preparation of chemical precursor or base, rest, reactors, and cooling. Within the rural compound, there was a building for at least 30 people, but military personnel did not find anyone during the operation.

The drug was in a rustic “narcolaboratorio” and in two hiding places underground (Source/ Semar, via Cuartoscuro)

The laboratory was equipped with heaters, pans and light plants (Source/ Semar, via Cuartoscuro)

Only in the place of preparation, there were seven tons of meth ready for commercialization. (Source/ Semar, via Cuartoscuro)

The narcotic was in drums and sacks, Semar said. Photo: Special, via Northwest (Source/ Semar, via Cuartoscuro)

With the area fairly camouflaged from above and the surrounding town, troops found 180 drums, with a capacity of 60 liters (15.5 gallons) each, with stored meth. Authorities estimate 47 to 50 tons of the drug have been counted on site, both in liquid and solid forms.

A high command of the Navy confirmed that the seized drug belongs to the Cartel of the Pacific or Cartel of Sinaloa. (Semar, via Cuartoscuro)

Video: The Navy confiscated 50 tons of the drug in Sinaloa

“The largest confiscation of finished meth in the history of Sinaloa”, said the military official.

Military sources said the quality of the meth is high. A daily kitchen of this size can produce 200 kilos of meth (440 pounds). “The average cost per pound is $ 5,000 on the US border, and in Sinaloa about 25,000 pesos per pound (1,300 dollars) is paid,” said one of the military officers who participated in the operation.

The meth superlab in Mexico is very disturbing because ultimately it will end up in America’s inner cities and rural towns. The Centers for Disease Control estimates drug overdose deaths based on a current flow of mortality data from the National Vital Statistics System has just reached a record of 71,568 Americans in 2017.

That is a 6.6 percent jump in overdose deaths over 2016 and represents a rapid deterioration of America’s inner core: The middle class.

Here is a simple question: If the economy is the “greatest ever” as President Trump has described on Twitter countless times, then why are record Americans dying from drug overdoses?

As long as the American middle class continues to fracture, they will continue to demand low-cost drugs from Mexico.

Money: The Greatest Scam In History – What Is Money?


Published on May 7, 2016

“Some of the biggest men in the United States, in the field of commerce and manufacture, are afraid of something. They know that there is a power somewhere so organized, so subtle, so watchful, so interlocked, so complete, so pervasive, that they had better not speak above their breath when they speak in condemnation of it.” – Woodrow Wilson, former President of the United States. “Each and every time a bank makes a loan, new bank credit is created – new deposits – brand new money.” – Graham F. Towers Commercial Banks create money in the form of demand deposits, when they make loans to households or companies. When a bank makes a loan, a deposit is created at the same time in the borrower’s bank account. In that way, new money is created as a bookkeeping entry, with the loan representing an asset and the deposit a liability on the bank’s balance sheet. The Bank of England explains this process: “In the modern economy, most money takes the form of bank deposits. But how those bank deposits are created is often misunderstood: the principal way is through commercial banks making loans. Whenever a bank makes a loan, it simultaneously creates a matching deposit in the borrower’s bank account, thereby creating new money.” So where does money come from? In the United States, it comes from the Federal Reserve. When the U.S. government decides that it wants to spend another billion dollars that it does not have, it does not print up a billion dollars. Rather, the U.S. government creates a bunch of U.S. Treasury bonds (debt) and takes them over to the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve creates a billion dollars out of thin air and exchanges them for the U.S. Treasury bonds. So why does the U.S. government go to all this trouble? Why doesn’t the U.S. government create the money itself? Those are very good questions. One of the primary reasons why our system is structured this way is so that wealthy people can get even wealthier by lending money to the U.S. government and other national governments. Over the centuries, the ultra-wealthy have found lending to national governments to be a very, very profitable enterprise. But wait. There is a problem. Because the U.S. government must pay interest on the Treasury bonds, the amount of debt that has been created by this transaction is greater than the amount of money that has been created. So where will the U.S. government get the money to pay that debt? Well, the theory is that we can get money to circulate through the economy really, really fast and tax it at a high enough rate that the government will be able to collect enough taxes to pay the debt. And the creators of the Federal Reserve understood this as well. They understood that the U.S. government would not have enough money to both run the government and service the national debt. They knew that the U.S. government would have to keep borrowing even more money in an attempt to keep up with the game. That is why the Federal Reserve is a perpetual debt machine. The Federal Reserve central bank was created to trap the U.S. government in an endlessly expanding debt spiral from which there is no escape.

TSA Admits ‘Quiet Skies’ Surveillance Program Is Useless, Promises To Continue Engaging In Useless Surveillance

Posted: 09 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

More news comes from the Boston Globe about the TSA’s “Quiet Skies” program. Having decided the skies were too quiet, the TSA started nominating people for surveillance based on god knows what and sent air marshals all over the US to tail “suspects” as they unsuspectingly went about their travels. Some of the targets included flight attendants and law enforcement officers. To those tasked with this futile (and likely unconstitutional) surveillance, the program is a waste of time and resources, if not a full-blown civil liberties catastrophe.

How to Deal with Passive-Aggressive People and Stop Their Toxic Influence

Posted: 13 Aug 2018 09:28 AM PDT

How to Deal with Passive-Aggressive People and Stop Their Toxic Influence

Do you want to know how to deal with passive-aggressive people?

Those of us who are straight-talking and no-nonsense types, nothing gets on our nerves more than passive-aggressive people. It is one of the most insidious and underhand ways of dealing with conflict. So why do some people continue to use it? More importantly, is there a way we can learn how to deal with passive-aggressive people?
People use passive-aggressive behaviour for a number of different purposes. The main reasons are a fear of direct conflict and a feeling of helplessness.

Before we go any further, if you are in any doubt as to what passive-aggressive behaviour is, here are some examples:

  • Pretending everything is fine when there is a problem.
  • Sulking, sullen, insulting behaviour.
  • Complaining loudly about a loved one within hearing distance.
  • Doing everything themselves, then getting angry that no one helps.
  • Giving a person the silent treatment.
  • Withholding love, praise, affection or sex.
  • Deliberately failing to cause another person problems.
  • Intentional inefficiency or sabotage.
  • Withholding important information on purpose.
  • Going behind a person’s back to undermine them.
  • Spreading nasty rumours or gossiping.
  • Noncommittal in their agreements.
  • Going back on their word so you never know where you are.
  • Do something half-assed.
  • Allowing a problem to escalate through deliberately doing nothing.
  • Being late in order to escape a situation.
  • Continual procrastination, forgetting or denying.
  • Flaring up over the slightest situation then making out it was a joke.
  • Always playing the victim.

Recognise any of these signs? Are you ready to learn how to deal with passive-aggressive people?

How to deal with passive-aggressive people:

1. Recognise that it is passive-aggressive behaviour

Passive-aggressiveness is all about subterfuge and dishonesty. You have to be a detective in order to unravel the behaviour for what it is. Therefore, identifying and recognising the behaviour is the first step in dealing with passive-aggressive people.
It is a kind of battle in which one side is using underhand tactics to be hostile. Once you see it as a battle, it empowers you to act. The minute you start to show leniency you’ve lost. Passive-aggressive behaviour is all about power struggles between two parties. Like a tug-of-war. Give an inch and you’ll lose ground.

2. Get the person to admit they are using passive-aggressive behaviour

This might be difficult. The whole point about passive-aggressive behaviour is that it is covert.
The best way to get someone to admit what they are doing is to ask a lot of open-ended questions. These are questions that require more than a yes or no response. They get the person to open up about what’s troubling them.

3. Don’t take it personally

The worst thing you can do when a person is acting in a passive-aggressive manner is to take it personally. There could be all kinds of reasons why a person uses this behaviour to avoid conflict.
Reasons why people use passive-aggressive behaviour:

4. Stay calm

If you are anything like me, passive-aggressive people will drive you nuts. It’s really important, however, to stay calm and not get angry.
Passive-aggressive behaviour is extremely negative. If you get angry, you’ve turned the negativity back onto yourself. You’re now dealing with feelings of anger and frustration when what you need to focus on is their behaviour.
Diverting attention away from the actual problem is exactly what these people want. If you exert a calm air of assertiveness, it shows you cannot be manipulated.

5. Be assertive

Talking of being assertive, you can also communicate in an assertive manner. There are many ways of being assertive, including:

  • Using ‘I’ and not ‘you’ as this stops the other person feeling as if you are blaming them.
  • Maintain natural eye contact that it comfortable and not intimidating or frightening.
  • Speak in slow and even tones and avoid using high-pitched or whiny tones.
  • Use open body languages such as open palms and smiles that communicate a sense of warmth and likeability.
  • Don’t be accusatory.
  • Listen to the person’s point of view and acknowledge their feelings.
  • Wait for them to express their feelings and then put your points across in a calm and matter-of-fact way.

6. Don’t react in anger to their behaviour

Passive-aggressive types want an immediate reaction. Preferably an angry one. This is why they use this kind of behaviour in the first place – to provoke you.

If you do react in anger, all you are doing is reinforcing negative behaviour. By ignoring it, you stop it in its tracks. However, just because you shouldn’t react in anger, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t react at all.

7. Do confront their behaviour

Knowing how to deal with passive-aggressive people is key to stopping it for good. So you should confront them, but be clear and stick to the facts. Don’t generalise, use specific incidents as examples.
For instance, it’s no good being vague about a person’s procrastination at work. Saying things like, “You never get things done!” won’t get the situation resolved. You need to point out specific projects where the person didn’t start the work on time.

8. Be positive to counteract the negativity

What is the best solution to negativity? Relentless positivity of course! Just as some people kill others with kindness, so should you blast out those positive vibes! So what is a good way to engage in a positive manner?
Set realistic goals and time limits if your passive-aggressive pal is prone to procrastination. Be inclusive for those who feel left out or ignored. Offer positive reinforcement for young passive-aggressive offenders (children that use this behaviour to get out of chores etc.).

More than anything, make the person feel as if they’ve been heard, the problem acknowledged and their feelings validated.

9. Put yourself in their position, get them to see yours

In other words, provoke and invoke empathy. Whatever the situation, if you see it from their point of view, you’ll gain insight into what’s bothering them. It might not make sense, but at least you’ll have a clearer idea of how to move forward.
Not only that but get them to see things from your point of view and they’ll have some perspective.

10. If all else fails…

Finally, if you’ve tried everything and you still can’t get a resolution, you might have to back off altogether.
It is possible that this person has serious issues that only a professional can deal with. You must remember that you are not a therapist, and you have to consider your own mental health and stability.
It’s perfectly acceptable to remove yourself from the situation and get on with your own life. That’s your main responsibility. Try your hardest but if you can’t help, don’t feel bad, know that you did your very best.

Government’s Own Report Shows Tax Dollars Spent in Afghanistan Have Boosted Opium Production

The Grand Irony of RussiaGate: The U.S. Becomes More Like the U.S.S.R. Every Day

Posted: 11 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

Poor consumer choice. Poor resource allocation. Poor quality consumer products. Poor environmental management/outcomes. Hyper-vigilance and hyper-control of Government over its people. Dodgy Utilities. The difference is that the Soviet Union had a better healthcare system than USA currently has and better housing availability for common people. How’s the irony! Capitalism and Communism ultimately end up with similar outcomes and for the same reason: Cartel behaviours and cronyism. Exactly. When the system is rigged to benefit insiders, cartels, cronies and elites at the expense of the many “outsiders,” the status quo must mask this reality with propaganda and Big Lies: that is, keep repeating the lie until people believe it due to its embrace by “experts” and authorities.

Oh Look, Yet More Efforts To Strangle Broadband Competition

Posted: 13 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

A major component of the Telecommunications Act of 1996 was the idea of line sharing, or local loop unbundling. Simply put, the rules set forth required that incumbent telcos needed to share their networks with smaller competitors, providing wholesale access to bandwidth. It was an effort to foster something vaguely resembling competition in the broadband space by letting smaller companies piggyback on existing network infrastructure. The thought was that because the barriers to market entry were so high (both politically and financially), this could help smaller competitors gain footholds that would otherwise be impossible.

Nuclear fallout detected in Australian sheep in 1979 has been attributed to a covert nuclear test

A RADIOACTIVE dust cloud swept over Western and South Australia. It wasn’t the British. Nor the US or French. A new study says it was probably a covert test by Israel.

That kind of flash was usually a nuclear explosion. Almost 39 years later, there appears to be fresh evidence that’s exactly what it was.

The Rainmakers: How Human Beings Control the Weather

I remember as a child when fires happened, rain often followed. What is stopping it now?   Who is wanting these fires?  See the last picture below of how simple ionizers along with dust particles can be used to create rain within a few hours.  We have the dust particles from the forest.  Our government created 52 artificial rain storms in Abu Dhabi desert for 11 million dollars (Scientists Create 52 Artificial Rain Storms in Abu Dhabi Desert) with as little as 30 humidity on days when NO (ZERO) rain was predicted.   So why is our government letting California, Oregon and Colorado burn.  Why?  By design? 

Gizmodo – by Andrew Tarantola

Humans have been trying to control the weather since the day we traded in our spears for shovels. Cultures from every corner of the globe have worshipped rain-granting deities, and our sci-fi villains have been obsessed with flood and drought. But in the modern era, we no longer have use for the old water gods. We’ve got the technology, finally, to make the clouds do our bidding.  

That’s not to say that the transition from praying for rain to manufacturing rain was an easy one, or even that the current methods are the most effective possible. The history of weather modification, the act of intentionally manipulating the atmosphere, has had its fair share of charlatans and crackpots. You may have guessed that, considering this scientific school has grown out of pure superstition.

Cloudbusting Was a Bust

The most famous weather modification quack has got to be Austrian psychoanalyst Wilhelm Reich. Like L. Ron Hubbard without the cult, Reich performed dozens of scientifically unsound experiments throughout the ’50s and ’60s which resulted in highly questionable results not well-regarded by the mainstream scientific community.

Reich’s weather modification techniques were among his most absurd attempts at innovation. He used a series of hollow tubes, like a giant metal pan flute, attached to flexible metal hoses at their rear, which were in turn attached to slightly smaller hollow metal tubes whose open ends are dipped in a pool of water. This contraption supposedly harnessed “orgone energy” from the water and attracted it from the atmosphere, converting it into moisture. Sort of like a lightning rod, but bullshit.

Cloud Seeding: The Atmosphere’s Test Tube Baby

Cloud seeding is the opposite of cloud busting. For one thing, it’s a real thing. The process has been replicated numerous times both in the lab and in the field and is backed up by years of peer-reviewed scientific research. For another, it impregnates clouds to instigate the precipitation process rather than magically gathering them using dark energies.

Cloud seeding is currently used all over the world—including throughout the United States, China (where it is used to clear smog in Beijing), India, and Russia—to enhance precipitation, both rain and snow, while inhibiting hail and fog. And it actually works.

Cloud seeding takes effect by spraying microscopic particles like aluminium oxide or silver iodide to affect the development of condensation by acting as artificial ice nuclei. They effectively give ice crystals something to grow on. The downside of cloud seeding is that it requires that the surrounding air already contain a certain percentage of water vapor; you can’t make something from nothing.

The particulate method, specifically using silver iodide, was discovered by none other than Dr. Bernard Vonnegut, Kurt Vonnegut’s brother, in 1971. Since Silver iodide has a similar crystalline structure to ice, it forms an artificial reef of sorts for ice crystals to grow on.

Vincent Schaefer, however, is credited with discovering the principles of contemporary cloud seeding in 1946. After a hike up New Hampshire’s Mount Washington with Nobel laureate Irving Langmuir, Schaefer developed a supercooled cloud system (where the liquid water vapor is at most 0 degrees C) out of a deep freezer in his lab in order to study the effects of ice crystal growth in a variety of mediums from talcum powder to table salt to top soil. The cloud for these experiments consisted of a large breath of air exhaled into the freezer. However, on one hot summer day, the freezer simply couldn’t work hard enough to get the chamber sufficiently cold, so Schaefer helped the process along, dropped some dry ice in there, and promptly discovered a way to instantly transform supercooled water vapor into ice. Further experiments successfully replicated the effect, with -40 degrees C as the transformative limit for supercool liquid water.

Unlike silver iodide, which gives the crystals somewhere to start, the dry ice method simply drops the temperature low enough to incite spontaneous crystallization while producing a vapor supersaturation. They’re typically delivered by aircraft, which light silver iodide flares as they fly through clouds, or by ground-based delivery systems like Howitzers and anti-aircraft guns.

Though dry ice and silver iodide are the two primary methods of cloud seeding, liquid propane and table salt are also used. Salt has proven especially effective in warmer clouds, such as those in Mexico and South Africa, because the salt crystals cause larger droplets to form than otherwise would and precipitate out of the cloud more readily.

America’s cloud seeding efforts are well documented. In the sweltering summer humidity of Alexandria, Virginia in 1948, mayor Carl B. Close ordered a cloud seeded with dry ice and was almost immediately rewarded with .85 inches of rain—during a drought. And while international treaties now forbid using weather modification for war, from March 1967 through July 1972, the U.S. military’s 54th Weather Reconnaissance Squadron carried out Operation Popeye, an extensive cloud-seeding effort to extend the monsoon season over Vietnam in the hopes of miring the Ho Chi Mihn Trail for an extra 30 – 45 days a year. The squadron’s motto: “make mud, not war.”

The UAE’s Ionizers: Tearing the Sky a New One

The United Arab Emirates is a land rich in wealth but poor in precipitation. That’s why president Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan has had the nation’s top scientific minds secretly toiling for years to create a new means of weather manipulation that would work more effectively in the region’s extreme temperatures. The result: The biggest Ionic Breeze on Earth.

Ionic Breeze devices are giant ionizers mounted atop tall steel poles and were built by the Swiss company, Metro Systems International. The devices generate massive ionic fields, positively charged ions ground back to the Earth while the negatively charged ions rise into the atmosphere. As they rise, the negative ions (electrons) collect particles of dust on the way up. These flecks act as seeds for ice crystal formation, much as silver iodide does except without the need for clouds. As long as the atmospheric humidity is at least 30 percent, the system supposedly works even in clear skies.

In the summer of 2010, 100 such emitters were spread over five sites in the Al Ain region. During July and August alone, when the area typically receives zero rainfall, it reportedly rained on 52 separate occasions, often with gusting winds and sometimes hail. The Max Planck Institute for Meteorology monitored the project and backed the study’s findings. This could be huge for the Middle East, where water is often in short supply and desalinization plants are nine-figure investments (and another eight-figures a year to run). The ionizers reportedly only cost $10.5 million to build and $8.9 million a year to operate.

Atlanta and the Clean Air Act

But why spend all that money when you can just curb air pollution to the same effect? That’s what Atlanta did.

When the Clean Air Act went into effect in 1970, nobody could have possibly foreseen the immediate and incredible effects it would have on the environment. In the first five years following the bill’s enactment, small particle emissions (under 10 micrometers) decreased by 40 percent nationwide. In the following two decades the average rainfall in Atlanta jumped 10 percent and stayed there.

Turns out the air pollution caused by Atlanta-area factories in the ’50s and ’60s resulted in less efficient clouds. That is, the small particle size of the pollution was great for forming clouds, but terrible at creating precipitation. For that, you need larger particles as well. “You don’t want tons of little ones, which is what Atlanta had in the ’50s and ’60s,” Jeremy Diem, a climatologist at Georgia State University, told Scientific American.

The Sky’s the Limit

During its hosting of the 2008 Olympics, China went far beyond a grandiose opening ceremony. The PRC reportedly had 30 airplanes, 4,000 rocket launchers, and 7,000 anti-aircraft guns on the ready to obliterate any potential precipitation. This raises more than a few technical and ethical questions, like “what are the environmental and pathological consequences of spraying large amounts of silver iodide into the atmosphere?” and “If China can stop rain on a whim for the Olympics, what’s to keep them (or any nation) from weaponizing that ability?”

On the other hand, there is also significant upside to our methods of weather control beyond just making it rain. Many of the same techniques can be used, for instance, to mitigate the destructive force of hurricanes.

Overall, while weather modification techniques can be hit or miss, the future of the science looks promising. With advances in large-scale systems modeling and atmospheric research, we may soon be able to control the weather with the touch of a button. And that’s when the real fun begins.

Corporal Punishment and the American Identity

Posted: 10 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

Around the world, Americans have the reputation of being soft with their children. There are internet memes and jokes around the world mocking American children, presenting them as whiny, first-world brats whose parents and teachers never say “no” to them. Tourists from Asia or other parts of the world are warned to avoid slapping or smacking their children while visiting the United States, as this could result in legal consequences. Though it is not obvious, this is largely contrary to the longstanding reputation of the United States throughout most of the country’s history. Furthermore, statistics show that this stereotype is inconsistent with how the overwhelming majority raise their children.While  the American media, academia, child-rearing classes, and almost every public voice opposes punishing children physically, Americans simply disagree, and continue to disagree, despite being bombarded with the opposing viewpoint.

Google and Facebook Were Created by the CIA

Google and Facebook Were Created by the CIA

The Tech Giants are taking a lot of heat in the independent media lately but they’re really just privatized arms of the US intelligence apparatus.
The rise of Big Tech can be correlated to legislative and technological developments created for achieving “Total Information Awareness” in the wake of the 2001 Patriot Act and the 2007 Protect America Act, which directly enabled NSA’s PRISM surveillance program. These Silicon Valley datamining and social engineering platforms have since grown to have the greatest market capitalizations of all other corporations on Earth.
Skirting the law, the US Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISA) is being used to compel virtually all big data corporations, from phone companies to ISPs to social media platforms to supply NSA with their user data. In 2013, The Washington Post reported that “98% of PRISM production is based on Yahoo, Google, and Microsoft.”
One begins to understand why newspapers and TV truly are the Dinosaur Media. While their one-way data flows of Fake News may have some propagandistic utility, their low interactivity and low correlation with reality create a Garbage-in-Garbage-Out dissonance which interferes with the project to construct a digital facsimile of everything on this planet and beyond, aka the Internet of Things (IOT), the Global Information Grid (GIG) and all of the machine learning that will be needed to drive autonomous vehicles, etc., using the 5G network.
So, what’s all the rush to roll out the IOT? We’ve heard that data is the new money, which is literally the case with cryptocurrencies and this is germane to the Global Currency Reset people have been talking about for the past 10 years. With Saudia Arabia vowing to go green, US-sanctioned countries circumventing the petrodollar and many European jurisdictions planning to phase out gasoline engines in just a few years, it’s clear that the age of invading oil-rich countries to control their resources is coming to an end and with it, the petrodollar that dominated that era.
The Empire will need to dominate the next era by controlling all of the data, hence the GIG and making everything into a giant Sim City, where everything and everyone will become a node on the network and if your social credit gets downgraded, well, that’s life in the emerging technocracy. That’s actually life right now.
The Truth Factory does a great job of explaining how the Tech Giants were incubated and fostered by the CIA and the Pentagon’s Highlands Forum into becoming the illegal monopolies that they are and how something’s got to give.

Posted: 12 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

America’s long-term “balance sheet numbers” just continue to get progressively worse. Unfortunately, since the stock market has been soaring and the GDP numbers look okay, most Americans assume that the U.S. economy is doing just fine. But the stock market was soaring and the GDP numbers looked okay just prior to the great financial crisis of 2008 as well, and we saw how that turned out…

Divide & Conquer on Full Display as Media Devotes Days of Attention to 20 White Nationalists in DC

Posted: 12 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

Approximately 20 white nationalists rallied in the nation’s capital over the weekend on the anniversary of the face off in Charlottesville, Virginia and the media has incessantly devoted round the clock coverage of it for the last week. Why is that? In the days leading up to the protest, the mainstream media essentially acted as advertisement for the tiny group of white nationalists who’s lackluster turnout would have likely gone entirely unnoticed otherwise. The divide was stoked so much that hundreds of counter protesters showed up ready for battle only to be sadly disappointed that they had no one to scream at.

Canada’s foreign ministry’s global affairs office urged “the Saudi authorities to immediately release” civil society and women’s rights activists.

The FCC Says Net Neutrality Lawsuits Are Moot Because It Already Repealed Net Neutrality

Posted: 14 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

The Federal Communications Commission is making every effort to shut down lawsuits against its decision to repeal net neutrality, including employing some arcane and somewhat desperate legal strategies. Put as simply as possible, the FCC wants to have a previous court decision on net neutrality rules scrapped from the legal record, which would eliminate a precedent for net neutrality proponents currently challenging the agency. The FCC’s reasoning for requesting the scrap, though, is that those net neutrality rules don’t exist anymore…because the FCC reversed them…which is why they’re being challenged in court in the first place.

SmartDrive claims in-cab truck surveillance cameras are “saving the planet”

Posted: 14 Aug 2018 09:00 PM PDT

Last week I thought I saw it all, when I learned that Waldo Photos is trying to convince parents that “facial recognition at summer camps is fun.” I thought, things could not get any crazier. That was until I heard of a company called SmartDrive Systems (SDS). According to SDS’s own video, truck drivers who don’t want in-cab surveillance cameras “have something to hide!” SDS is trying to use scare tactics to convince truck drivers that in-cab surveillance cameras are for their safety. SDS cameras do more than just record what is happening in the cab of a truck. According to an article in Talk Business & Politics, SDS cameras record when a truck driver speeds, brakes, takes a U-turn or takes a corner and their seat belt usage.

Is humanity approaching a major turning point?  A computer model that was originally developed in 1973 by a group of scientists at MIT is warning that things are about to dramatically change.  If the computer predictions are accurate, our standard of living will start to decline dramatically around the year 2020, and we will witness the “end of civilization” around the year 2040.  Of course this is not the first time ominous predictions such as this have been made about our future.  For years, experts have been warning that we are heading for severe shortages of water, food and oil as our limited natural resources begin to run out.  For years, experts have been warning that our economic model is not sustainable and that we are heading for a historic collapse.  For years, experts have been warning about the alarming increase in seismic activity all over the planet and about the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.  Society is crumbling all around us, and the elements for a “perfect storm” are definitely coming together.

As we’ve been noting, the practice has heated up over the last few years, with countless wireless customers saying their entire identities were stolen after thieves ported their phone number to another carrier, then took over their private data.

Screaming In Arabic As Burqa Gets Caught In Escalator, Veiled Shopper Prompts Stampede Out of French Mall

Gateway Pundit – by Damien Cowley

Shoppers mistake cries of djellaba-clad woman for terrorist attack.

Panic ensued Thursday evening in the French city of Montpellier after a women in North African garb began screaming in Arabic as her garment became trapped in a shopping mall escalator.

Local media report that the startled woman’s cries set off a chain reaction which saw shoppers flee towards the exits of the southern beach city’s Polygone Shopping complex, believing a jihadist attack to be underway.  

Upon seeing dozens flee from the veiled woman, other shoppers became panicked and themselves fled, resulting in a terrified stampede from the mall towards Montpellier’s Place de la Comédie, according to police. A police statement noted that several witnesses believed they heard the distressed woman cry, ”Allahu Akbar”, a slogan often heard during Islamic terror attacks.

“I heard the yelling, then I saw the customers bolt towards the main exit and the emergency exits, and I did the same thing”, one eye-witness explained to local news outlet, Le Metropolitain.

Thursday evening’s panic was described by one observer as a mundane incident which led to the unfolding of surreal scenes in the popular shopping mall. Normality resumed quickly afterwards, local media reports, with no injuries having occurred.

Whilst short-lived, the unlikely drama speaks of rattled nerves and a larger climate of insecurity in France;

In February 2017, an ”imminent” terrorist attack was thwarted in the city following the arrest of a local jihadist network, whilst in March of this year, three people were killed in jihadist attacks in Carcassonne and Trèbes, both in the same region.

According to French counter terrorism agencies, the foiled 2017 attack involved a three person group on the verge of launching suicide bombings at a touristic site in Paris and an unspecified target in MontpellierExplosives recovered from a make-shift laboratory in a suburb of the city were intended for use in a suicide vest, investigators revealed, following anti-terror raids in the region last spring.

Something has happened… we’re just trying to figure out what it is. We were trying to do a Step 10 wrap up, checking all the meters, but the energies just won’t stop. And now THIS.

Look at this. This is huge front page science news… but no one is covering it:

That’s TWO gynormous geomagnetic events. G5s off the charts is front page news. Close-ups:

So, shortly after midnight PDT and around 6:00 am PDT.

 It looks like it’s from some kind of solar event… but all the solar meters are sleepy.

Check out (the sold out) Spaceweather:

But, here’s the Yakutsk muon data:

Literally off the chart. It never looks like that.

And another:

Literally off the chart.

And here’s the riometer data:

Those are very singular plots.

Something just happened. We’re trying to figure out what.

AND NOW IT SMELLS LIKE DONUTS! Seriously. What the heck is going on? Whoa, ears ringing like crazy, too. We’ll let you know what it means once we figure it out. Jeez. Mondays.

AN ODD THING ABOUT THOSE FIRES IN GREECE…

Posted: 30 Jul 2018 01:39 PM PDT

AN ODD THING ABOUT THOSE FIRES IN GREECE…

Remember those fires in California? You know, the ones that mysteriously appeared seemingly from nowhere, and burned down buildings and cars and rather strangely left nearby trees and shrubs …well… “unburned”? And that left property values in the tank and easy to pick up for pennies on the dollar? And which, incidentally, there are now reports of people suffering strange rashes, headaches, breathing problems and so on? And, oh yea, that the military was called in to deal with?
Yes, those fires…
Well, oddly enough, this week my inbox contained a few emails of pictures that people that had sent me, pictures taken by Greeks of those recent fires in and around Athens and a few nearby resort communities. And, oddly enough, these emails contained pictures, and oddly enough, the people sending them could not find any links for them. What the pictures showed, however, was the strange “California” pattern all over again: completely melted cars, while nearby trees and shrubs are…well… “unburned”. So needless to say, I went “looking” and found a few suggestive pictures like these contained in an article at CNN:
Cars turn to molten metal as Greek wildfires wipe villages off the map
Granted this is not much, and the cars depicted are hardly puddles of molten metal. But there is that very odd picture – the third major picture insert – taken near the town of Mati, which shows some burned out houses, a few burned trees, but oddly enough, some trees near the burned out houses that were not burned at all, at least, to my eye.
Well, needless to say, I find that “interesting,” especially since (here comes a bit of high octane speculation) Greece as we know was hit by Mad Madam Merkel’s – and Goldman-Sachs’ – “austerity” plan, with Greece’s assets in the crosshairs; “Parthenon, for sale, cheap.” Of course, countries like France, Spain and so on have offered assistance and sent firefighters and so on, and many of the pictures of these fires were taken by drones (gee, I wonder who might be involved with that?), and as in the case of the California fires, the Greek military was called out to assist.
But still, nothing much to go on. But Mr. B.H. found one photo on Facebook that resembles the other photos people sent me (the ones without links): https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=2258157387532148&set=a.219302648084309.67599.100000137271778&type=3&theater
Curiously, the cars seem to have been the victims of some high heat, as well as a nearby telephone pole, but the trees and nearby buildings are oddly and seemingly unscathed. The problem here, of course, is there is no public provenance for the picture… we don’t know if this is Athens or its environs or not. But I can say, that the picture looks very much like the others sent to me. And of course, our Facebook poster has already jumped to the conclusion that the culprit was a directed energy weapon of some sort. Well, too early for that conclusion, and based only on one picture. After all, one can find plenty of pictures from the fire where shrubbery and trees were burned. Nothing to see here. Move along…
… maybe, because there have been reports throughout the lamestream media that the Greek government is suspecting arson. For example:
‘Serious indications’ deadly Greece wildfire was arson, official says
It seems Public Order Minister Nikos Toskas thinks the fire may have been arson:

Public Order Minister Nikos Toskas told reporters that satellite image analysis and ground inspections suggest the fire that broke out in multiple places over a short period of time Monday likely resulted from arson.
“We have serious indications and significant findings of criminal activity concerning arson,” Toskas said. “We are troubled by many factors, and there have been physical findings that are the subject of an investigation.”
The Hellenic Fire Service’s special arson section, which probes all major fires, is investigating to determine the exact cause of the blaze. The mayor of the area where it broke out previously said it might have been sparks from a severed electricity pylon cable.(Emphasis added)

So we have

1) “physical findings” that are “the subject of an investigation,” the nature of which physical findings are unspecified;
2) except the Hellenic Fire Service is indicating that “it might have been sparks from a severed electricity pylon cable”, which, in the context of Minister Toskas’ remarks, would seem to imply that someone had deliberately severed the electrical pylon cable, a difficult and dangerous thing, and one requiring some expertise; but wait, one severed cable will not explain
3) the fact that Minister Toskas indicated that the fires broke out in several places more or less simultaneously.

So, were several electrical cables severed? Not likely, but if so, that would raise the stakes considerably, since that would imply teams of experts to sever said cables. Perhaps the fires were simply started the “old fashioned way” by more or less simultaneous ignition, but that would again, require a few teams or individuals to do so, and that again, implies some sort of “arson conspiracy”. And as in any crime, the real questions are not simply who has the means and opportunity to do so, but the motivation. The means here is the important question, for if the pictures that people sent me should showing anomalous “California-fires-style” damage, then that narrows the means down to unconventional and “exotic” forms of arson, and implicates some very big players. And of course, the motivation for doing so remains conveniently unexplained in the Greek government’s public explanations so far as I can tell.
So for the moment, I’m not entirely convinced of the “directed energy weapons” hypothesis, even though, privately, I’ve received a number of suggestive photos which have no provenance. There are some suggestive photos in the lamestream corporate media, but they’re only that. Nor am I willing to discount the hypothesis entirely either. There is something suspicious about those fires in Greece, as the Greek government has admitted.
Time will tell… it always does when “narratives” are involved, and begin to unravel.
See you on the flip side…

It’s not surprising that a cable company wouldn’t want to run an ad that criticizes it.

How to Block Microwave Mind-Programming Signals

Posted: 04 Aug 2018 07:51 AM PDT

How to Block Microwave Mind-Programming Signals
montalk.net » 14 July 04We have all heard jokes about tinfoil hats. Turns out there might be some practical truth to that idea. Aluminum foil really does attenuate (lessen) certain EM radiation if electrically grounded and not touching the skin. For those who are heavily bombarded by microwave beams from sources like cellphone towers, which is easy to determine if you have an RF signal detector as I do, blocking these waves with grounded metal sheets goes a long way to lessening the radiation.
A large source of dangerous EM radiation comes in the form of microwaves emitted by cell phone towers. From personal experimentation, and hearing the experiences of others, I am convinced that microwave pollution and intentional targeting can muddle thoughts, induce fatigue, reduce willpower, and maybe even subliminally implant thoughts or entrain emotional states. They may also be used for monitoring purposes.
Using a microwave signal strength meter, I have made several objective observations about these signals:

  1. They tend to be beamed through the window of a room where one spends the most time, usually the window facing the front street.
  2. They are specifically directed to target and track a person inside his home.
  3. The tracking speed is slow, and when the target moves, the signal takes several seconds or minutes to search and find the target at his new location.
  4. When the target enters an area in his home that the signal cannot reach, the signal goes on a wide search mode, thinking the target has left his home and is traveling about town.
  5. When the primary window is blocked off, within days the signal finds another window or thin wall to penetrate.
  6. One can feel the effects of this signal, which may induce a dull headache or pressure in the temples.

It appears cell phone towers are generating these signals by triangulating hotspots on selected tracked targets. This would require that computers perform the calculations necessary to alter the signal of each of three cell phone towers so as to triangulate a hotspot of signal at the target’s location. When the target moves, new calculations have to be made, which takes several seconds. Maybe something else generates the beams, like satellites.
These signals may consist of microwave carriers with ELF modulation, and perhaps with audio or text encoded messages. Some possibilities:

  1. The microwaves resonate with DNA, can penetrate flesh and bone, pass through some walls and windows, and are already in use by cell phones.
  2. These signals entrain brainwaves into a high-beta state, which causes aggression and stress, or an alpha level that induces hypnotic states and muddled thinking.
  3. Besides the ELF waves that entrain brain states, the carrier may also convey audio messages. I have not verified what these messages are, but they could be something along the lines of “you are angry, you cannot think, you give up, you have no energy, etc.” These audio messages could be modulated into the microwave carrier via frequency modulation, while the ELF brain-entrainment signals could be amplitude modulated.
  4. There may also be emotional signatures frequency-modulated into the carrier. These can induce anger, frustration, sadness, or essentially any human emotion into susceptible targets
  5. Standing waves within buildings can cause phase cancellation, turning the EM energy into scalar waves instead. These may have additional psychological, biological, and even paranormal effects.

Who is responsible for all this? Probably shadow factions of the military/intelligence community. If they wish to keep the population docile and keep all dissenters from acting upon their dissenting thoughts, no means are unthinkable to accomplish those ends.

What Can Be Done

There are two things you can do. First, you can learn to better cope with these signals. The more you are in control of your own mind and emotions, and the more observant you are about your own behavior, the less influence these signals have upon your thoughts, feelings, and behavior. Knowing is half the battle. Second, you can take additional steps to reduce the level of EM radiation in your home, by blocking these signals.
Standard methods of blocking microwave mind programming signals consist of Faraday cages, but proper Faraday cages made from copper mesh are difficult and expensive to build. Meanwhile, aluminum foil hats actually increase signal exposure by acting as antennas and resonant cavities unless they are grounded, so you can forget about that.
An easy and relatively cost-effective way to block microwaves goes as follows:
1) Obtain these items:

  • Several emergency foil blankets (also known as space blankets, emergency camping blankets, or mylar foil blankets). These come in small folded packs, found in the camping section of department stores. Available on Amazon.
  • Banana plug to Alligator test leads. These cables will clip onto the foil sheets and plug into the ground hole on your electrical outlet. Available on Amazon.
  • Duct tape, packing tape, or masking tape to hang up the sheets.
  • RF / MW (radio frequency / microwave) signal detector, optional but highly recommended. Two that work well are the Cornet RF Meters on eBay and 3-Axis EMF Meter (orange ball) on eBay. Detectors are important. I call them anti-paranoia meters, because these will confirm that you’re not just being paranoid. Their frequency range must go up to 3 Ghz minimum, 6 Ghz ideal. Anything lower than that will not pick up on the higher frequency microwaves. Avoid the CellSensor detector and anything that’s a gauss meter, since these are only good for low frequency fields under 1000 Hz like from transformers, power lines, and household appliances, not cell tower radiation which is typically in the 900 Mhz to 4 Ghz (4,000 MHz) range.
  • If you cannot obtain a signal detector, take your best guess at which windows or walls to cover. An ideal choice would be the corner or wall closest to your bed. Any protection is better than no protection. But without a device to measure what’s really there, your subjectivity may get the better of you.

3) Use the signal detector to record the relative signal strength from all windows in the room you wish to protect, preferably the office or bedroom. You can even move a metal pan held a foot away from the detector, around the detector in order to block the beam, thereby indicating what direction the beam is coming from. Depending on the type of detector, you may also notice peaks and troughs in the signal strength, as you move the detector in a linear direction; these are the nodes and anti-nodes of standing EM waves being detected.
4) Without gaps, cover the walls or windows with emergency foil blankets, using tape to hang up and connect the pieces. It does not matter which side of the blankets faces the wall as far as effectiveness goes, but put the metallic side (which can be scratched off) toward the wall or window so that it doesn’t get rubbed off by stuff in the room brushing up against it. If covering walls is too much, then just cover the window. If this is too ugly for you, then using this same method you can make a safe room out of a large closet, or put your bed or desk in the corner and cover the half of the walls adjacent to it. Leave some openings for ventilation.
5) Widen the splayed banana plug tip by inserting a knife of thin screwdriver into the gaps, and stick into the ground jack on your electrical outlet. This is the middle one that’s round, not slotted. It won’t fit in the slots anyway, which carry dangerous electricity. These instructions are written for the USA type outlets; consult references for your country’s outlets otherwise, looking for the ground connection.
6) Then connect the alligator clip end to the bottom edge of a blanket, so that it grips onto both sides of the foil. Then use double-alligator wires to connect one blanket piece to another, so that an electrical pathway is traced between the grounded plug and the last blanket. The more grounded outlets used, the better.
7) Check for incoming radiation, add another blanket where necessary. After an hour or two (or a week or two) check the remaining windows and compare their signal strength to what you recorded previously. If they are now showing intense incoming radiation, the signal has re-oriented and you must cover that wall or window as well.

You will feel the difference. As an experiment, tape up only half of a grounded blanket, so that you stand before an uncovered window. Verify the beam is strong. Then tape up the rest so the window is covered. The pressure in your head may disappear, only to reappear if you pull the blanket down again. If you live in a flat urban area, the field intensities tend to be high. Some places I have lived, the radiation was surprisingly weak and so no foil blankets were necessary.
Why does this work? Microwaves cannot easily penetrate metal, especially grounded metal such as the electrically grounded foil blankets. When an incoming microwave beam hits the foil, if the foil isn’t grounded then it will “splash around” and reflect in various ways, sort of like a water hose aiming at a dinner plate. Your meter will detect the energy leaking out around the foil blankets in that case. Radiation will still enter your home but at least not be as directional. But if the foil is grounded, then the energy is sucked out of the beam and channeled into the ground hole on the outlet and out of the building through a copper rod sunk into the soil (buildings are supposed to have these per regulation). Then the sheet acts as an absorber.
The reason why emergency blankets are recommended over Reynolds aluminum foil is that these blankets are larger, more durable, cheaper, and easier to hang up. But you can use aluminum foil if you wish, and being thicker they will be slightly better at attenuating the frequency. Though some signal still gets through, and foil does not block pure ELF waves (ones without a higher frequency carrier), this is one step to greatly reducing the level of incoming microwave radiation. To block ELF and especially scalar waves is not easy, so I have no tips regarding those.

Other Miscellaneous Tips

  • For temporary relief, go to the basement, lie on the floor, or move around. These prevent strong hot spots from locking onto you. This may seem paranoid, but test it with a signal detector and you will verify this for yourself.
  • If one has a choice, avoid spring mattresses. Use instead air mattresses, waterbeds, wooden cots, or futons. Platform beds made of wood are available to support a futon mattress. Springs are like antennas, and focus EM and ELF energy into your body while you sleep.
  • Get proper sleep and nutrition. This means enough calories, protein, adequate minerals, plenty of clean water, and fresh fruits and vegetables. Being deficient in any of these will cause mental weakness and submissiveness to mind programming signals. Foil shielding may improve sleep, if sleep is being disrupted by such fields.
  • Question baseless thoughts or emotions you may have, especially negative emotions such as aggression or depression that urge you to act without thinking. Becoming aware of their presence is often enough to deactivate them.
  • Don’t let the means become an ends. Reducing mind programming signal influences should serve to increase your productivity and efficiency in what you truly desire to do, the goals you choose to follow. Don’t let fear and paranoia become obsessions that displace the importance of following your goals.

Father, son speed through ‘hell’ to escape Montana wildfire

Fox News

Dramatic video shows a 70-year-old man and his son trying to drive through a wildfire in Glacier National Park in Montana.

Justin Bilton posted the video online earlier this week after their miraculous escape, ABCFoxMontana reports. On YouTube he titled the video, “That time we drove through hell in Glacier National Park (Howe Ridge).”  

“Dad, if the car heats up it’s going to explode,” Bilton was heard saying in the video. “Oh, Jesus, God help us.”

Near the end of the video, Bilton was heard asking his father what would happen if a tree fell on them.

http://video.foxnews.com/v/video-embed.html?video_id=5824082664001&loc=fromthetrenchesworldreport.com&ref=http%3A%2F%2Ffromthetrenchesworldreport.com%2Ffather-son-speed-through-hell-to-escape-montana-wildfire%2F231569&_xcf=

They they were stopped by a buring tree in the road.

“We can’t get out,” Bilton was heard saying. “Dad, we got to get out of here.”

Bilton wrote on YouTube that they were stuck at a trailhead at a dead end.

“The wildifre (sp) was between us and the only way out,” he wrote. “After we reached the downed, burning tree seen at the end of the video, I had to reverse all the way back to the trailhead, where we were lucky to flag down a boat. We were rescued by two park employees and taken to safety. The car burned in the fire.”

The Howe Ridge Fire started after a lightning storm swept through the park Aug. 11, the station reported.

Bilton and his father tried to escape the next day after jumping in their rental car.

The wildfire is now estimated to be just over 4,100 acres in size and has led to evacuation orders and road closures, according to the station.

Bilton and his father were backpacking through Wyoming and Montana at the time.

“When my dad decided he was going to get out to move the burning tree I was most scared because I didn’t think I could stop the stubborn old man!” Justin wrote on Facebook, according to KRTV.

“He’s def cool under pressure,” he said.

#Pedogate Update – Woman Witnesses Child Sacrifice At Vatican

Posted: 19 Feb 2018 08:40 PM PST

#Pedogate Update – Woman Witnesses Child Sacrifice At Vatican

A woman says she witnessed a child sacrifice in the catacombs of the Vatican. An international court examines documents backing her claim that it was and still is a regular occurrence. It’s all part of a Satanic cult where children are drugged, stripped naked, raped, hunted down and killed by European royals and church officials including the Pope. David Zublick unseals the horrible truth about the Ninth Circle in this special report!

https://youtu.be/HWawtzhmolM

The 9th Circle: Child Sex/Sacrifice Cult Initiation “The Ninth Circle Satanic Cult, a child sacrifice group composed of
global elites, appears to be routinely raping, torturing and murdering children” it was announced yesterday by the ITCCS. Recent court filings against the international child kidnapping ring go to court April 7.

Named as chief defendants for the Brussels Common Law Court trial were Pope Francis, Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Pachon and Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Among possible Ninth Circle Satanic Cult members named by witnesses who would testify at the trial were former popes Joseph Ratzinger and John Paul II, UK High Court Justice Judge Fulford and members of the British Royal Family.

“Queen Elizabeth had direct involvement in the kidnapping and death of aboriginal children and Royal Family members appeared to regularly participate in Ninth Circle Satanic Cult rituals at the Mohawk Indian School in Brantford Ontario Canada” yesterday’s announcement proclaimed.

According to two affidavits filed in court, not only did different witnesses see Ninth Circle Satanic Cult members commit murder, but claimed the brutal killings of innocent children continued today, some in sub-basement vaults.

The international court was set to consider:

· Testimonies of two former Mohawk School inmates who both say they were present at the Ninth Circle Satanic Cult murder of a 5-6 year-old girl at the Mohawk Indian School in Branton Ontario Canada.

· A copy of the ‘Magisterial Privilege’ that was filed within sealed archives of the Vatican library. The Ninth Circle Satanic Cult operated according to this canon law statute dated Dec. 25 1967. It was said to document that before each new pope assumed office it was mandatory that they participated in Ninth Circle Satanic Cult rites. The document referred to ceremonial murder of newborn children and consumption of their blood.

· Testimonies of two witnesses who claimed they saw former Pope Joseph Ratzinger, Dutch Cardinal Alfrink and Prince Bernhard take part in a Ninth Circle Satanic Cult murders in Holland and France, one of a little girl in the fall of 1987.

· One of those witnesses was Dutch therapist Toos Nijenhuis who in this video interview with Kevin Annett, discussed seeing Ninth Circle Satanic Cult murders as late as 2010. At least one of those murders involved former Pope Ratzinger.

· Testimony of Anglican church researcher Leona Moses, whose 2011 interview with Kevin Annett and Mohawk elder Cheryl Squire could be seen in this video.

· Testimony of a former Argentine civil servant during the 1970s Dirty War who took extensive notes of meetings between the now-Pope Francis and Junta military officials. Pope Francis’ fast ascension to head the Argentine Catholic Church was a suspected result of his agreement to traffick missing political prisoner children from Catholic orphanages.

· Testimony of a police-accredited investigator.

· The “G12” collection of documents of the Anglican Huron Diocese from the Church of England secret archives in London, Ontario Canada.

· A January 2012 memo from Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby to Anglican Primate Fred Hiltz in Toronto ordering destruction of forensic human remains and evidence of murdered children in the Mohawk Indian School archives.

“In October, 2011, excavations commenced by Mohawk elders on the grounds of the (Mohawk) school revealed…bones that had been cut up in sections. Two of these bone fragments were positively identified as being those of a small child by Ontario forensic examiner Greg Olson and archaeologist Kris Nahrgang, as well as by senior forensic pathologist Dr. Donald Ortner of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C. Ortner died of undisclosed causes shortly afterwards.”

Mass genocide of Mohawk Confederacy children began in 1832 at the former Church of England-Jesuit run Mohawk Indian Residential School in Brantford Ontario Canada. Since the 2008 discovery of a child mass grave site at the Mohawk School, there have been 31 other mass child grave sites identified at native residential schools across Canada, in Holland and the United States. The schools were mainly run by Catholic Jesuit priests.

On Feb. 28 2013 this same international court found Head of the Anglican Church of England Queen Elizabeth and former Pope Joseph Ratzinger guilty of Crimes Against Children – the same day Ratzinger became the first pope in history to resign from his office.

Child Sacrifices scheduled by Ninth Circle Satanic Cult

August 12, 2014

http://childabuserecovery.com/child-sacr…IcQjMlW_a0

Sunday, August 17, 2014

Yesterday two suspected members of the Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult were arrested during their preparations for what appeared to be a child sacrifice. Evidently the child homicide was to take place on a blood-stained altar in the basement of a residence in the upscale neighborhood of Outremont Montreal Quebec Canada. During an older woman’s arrest she admitted that the child sacrifice was scheduled for midnight and involved executives of America’s Sinclair Oil and food giant Cargill Corporation. According to an officer of the Brussels Belgium ICLCJ Court, their team worked in conjunction with Montreal police to perform the citizens arrests.

“This informant claimed that the two children to be used at the Montreal event were held at a separate facility at McGill University,” the ICLCJ Court press release stated, “but she claimed not to know where. She said that the normal procedure was to deliver them in a drugged condition just before the ritual began. The woman said cult members describe themselves as part of the Ninth Circle society and carried tattoos of the Ninth Circle insignia.​”

“Cargill Corporation Executive Kerry Brick is among the suspected Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult members,” Kevin Annett of the ITCCS said in today’s interview. “Months ago a survivor testified that as a child they were taken to Cargill Corporate Headquarters in Wayzata Minn where they were forced to observe a child sacrifice. From what other eyewitnesses reported to the ICLCJ Court, Ninth Circle members appear to be very influential and able to get away with doing child sacrifices across the globe.”

A security guard at the Montreal private residence showed arresting officers a small sub-basement sound proof chamber that contained a blood-stained stone altar and two small prison cells with wall shackles. An adjoining room held locked cabinets with child pornographic material and articles of children’s clothing. Evidence such as samples of blood, metallic torture devices, ceremonial swords and sophisticated film equipment was photographed and bagged for analysis.

The suspect identified child sacrifice participants as Cargill Corporation Executive Kerry Brick of Wayzata Minnesota and Sinclair Oil Executive Stephen Holding of Sun Valley Idaho. A prior ICLCJ document claimed other Ninth Circle members included Montreal Catholic Archbishop Christian Lepine and a prominent US billionaire. This same influential American businessman has been identified by eyewitnesses as being at Ninth Circle human hunting parties in the Netherlands. Children were stripped naked, raped, hunted down and killed – as were children in an Australian CIA mind control program according to eyewitness Fiona Barnett. Barnett chronicled her experiences in this article.

“Our team restrained all three prisoners, locked down the premises and took videos and samples from the underground chamber,” wrote a member of the arrest team. “We then secured a covert ​perimeter in the neighborhood in ​anticipation of the arrival of the cult participants and their victims. Unfortunately, although we maintained our vigil until well after midnight, ​no-one else arrived at the premises for the rest of that day and evening. We must assume that the participants were somehow alerted to our presence and aborted the ritual.”

Montreal police supported the Ninth Circle member citizens arrests and planned to eventually take charge of the suspects. “The security guard in our custody was released after he proved that he had been retained in a private commercial capacity. The two cult members are being held in our DAU prison facility in Montreal prior to their questioning by the Court Prosecutor and his Canadian affiliates. All samples and film we obtained are in transit to Brussels headquarters for analysis.”

The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, which has been prosecuting cases against Ninth Circle Satanic Cult members in the ICLCJ Court since 2011, had called for protests against child sacrifices believed scheduled on Aug. 15 for Reine du Monde Cathedral in Montreal and Pro Cathedral in Dublin Ireland. The Ireland child sacrifice was thought to be under the direction of Catholic Archbishop Dermot Martin. Evidently because of protests, the Montreal child sacrifice was relocated from the Montreal Cathedral sub basement crypt to an underground facility at McGill University, then to the private estate in Outremont Montreal.

McGill University had a history of torturing children in satanic-related mind control experiments. In the early 1950s at McGill, President of the Canadian, American and World Psychiatric Associations D. Ewen Cameron, tortured children as part of USA’s CIA MKULTRA program. In 1964 the US Congress supposedly shut down MKULTRA after a successful lawsuit against Cameron and McGill University by mind control survivor Linda MacDonald.

In these videos mind control survivors Claudia Mullen and Christina Nicola testified in the 1995 Congressional hearings about the CIA mind control of children. MKULTRA supposedly ended in 1964. However, in this video Jenny Hill discussed her 1965 witness to a child sacrifice under the direction of a CIA master mind controller thought to be head of the government’s program. The first fifty comments in this petition to Congress for an investigation of the CIA program, most by CIA mind control survivors, indicated that children were still being tortured even today in the government program.

Witnesses to these child sacrifices have alleged that the Ndrangheta Criminal Syndicate worked with police, Vatican and Catholic orphanages to provide children for torture and killing in monthly blood sacrifice rituals by the Ninth Circle. There have been 34 Catholic child mass grave sites found in Ireland, Spain and Canada. The grounds were believed to contain bodies of over 350,800 missing childrenalthough the respective governments and Catholic Church have refused ITCCS’s continuous requests for excavation.

Popes Francis and Ratzinger, plus Queen Elizabeth have all been named by eyewitness testifying before the ICLCJ Court as having killed and raped children in Ninth Circle Satanic Cult human sacrifice ceremonies. Over 60 eyewitnesses from several different countries have testified, with more contacting the Court each week.

Since 2011 six judges and 28 jury members of the ICLCJ Court have been litigating Ninth Circle Satanic Cult members. In Aug 2014 Pope Francis was found guilty of child trafficking; Pope Ratzinger resigned after his 2013 guilty verdict for Crimes Against Humanity and Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip were issued arrest warrants for their guilty verdicts in the 1964 disappearance of ten children from the Canadian British Columbia Kamloops Native Residential School.

The ICLCJ Court has over 450 Common Law Peace Officers in 13 countries, with 51 local chartered groups operating. Organizing funds were available for common law groups wishing to apply.

It’s all THEATER: Florida high school shooting survivor caught on video rehearsing scripted lines, coached by camera man

It’s all THEATER: Florida high school shooting survivor caught on video rehearsing scripted lines, coached by camera man
Monday, February 19, 2018 by: Mike Adams

(Natural News) Is anyone surprised anymore at the depths of deception invoked by the fake news media? All weekend long, the media paraded high school kids in front of news cameras, exploiting them as props for the emotional exploitation of the public. Now it turns out these kids were coached to repeat scripted lines, just like actors reading lines for a movie production. It’s all scripted, in other words, to push a gun control narrative rooted in emotional reaction rather than constructive solutions.
It also turns out that one of these kids — David Hogg — is the son of an FBI agent. In other words, his father was part of the same deep state swamp that has been committing treason to try to destroy Trump. This was almost never mentioned in any of the TV news interviews where he was vehemently defending the FBI and blaming President Trump for the shooting.
This is all explained in more detail by Lucian Wintrich, via The Gateway Pundit:

EXPOSED: School Shooting Survivor Turned Activist David Hogg’s Father in FBI, Appears To Have Been Coached On Anti-Trump Lines [VIDEO]

In less than a week since they survived a mass murdering gunman attack on their school, two student who quickly became media stars of the Parkland, Florida school shootings are now media obsessed to the point they say they are snubbing an invitation to meet with President Donald Trump this Wednesday in favor of appearing on a televised town hall with CNN’s Jake Tapper. […]
One student, in particular, David Hogg seems articulate and highly skilled at setting a new anti-Conservative/anti-Trump narrative behind the recent school shooting. Few have seen this type of rapid media play before and when they have it has come from well-trained political operatives and MSM commentators.
Immediately, these students-turned-activists threw up some red flags.
In what seemed initially as an incredibly odd move for a high school student, Hogg’s vehemently defended the FBI and placed the blame squarely on the President’s shoulders…. before admitting that his father was in the FBI.

“I think it’s disgusting, personally. My father’s a retired FBI agent and the FBI are some of the hardest working individuals I have ever seen in my life,” proclaimed David Hogg to CNN.
“It’s wrong that the president is blaming them for this.”
Continuing, Hogg demonstrated his complete lack of American civics knowledge. A clueless Hogg appeared unaware of the fact that the President is not ‘in control’ of each department and branch of government, but must work and negotiate with them. Hogg added that Trump is in charge of the FBI.
“He can’t put that off on them. He is in charge of them and these people, what they love to do is push this off on bureaucracy and say it’s not them,” he said. “He is in charge of the FBI … the executive branch is supposed to enforce laws and as such, President Trump is in charge of that and the FBI.”
Anyone who has been following the news could tell you that many in the FBI have been working against the president from the start, with the most notable case being the Obama Administration alongside the Clinton campaign’s attempts to push the false ‘verification’ of the junk Steele Dossier. It has also been widely reported that the FBI received tips well in advance of the Florida school shooting and decided, for whatever reason, not to act.
The fault for this tragedy lies squarely on the shoulder’s of the FBI who could have prevented this back in January.
Adding to the credibility of Hogg, in a recently uncovered early cut from one of his interviews it appears he was heavily coached on lines and is merely reciting a script. Frequently seen in the footage mouthing the lines he should be reciting, Hogg becomes flustered multiple times and apologizing and asking for re-takes.

Why would the child of an FBI agent be used as a pawn for anti-Trump rhetoric and anti-gun legislation? Because the FBI is only looking to curb OUR Constitutional rights and INCREASE their power. We’ve seen their propaganda many times. Don’t let them win.

From InfoWars: Evidence mounts the Florida attack may be a “giant false flag”

Via InfoWars.com, the propaganda “fact check” cult group known as SNOPES has been caught bullying a surviving student because he dared to go on the Alex Jones Show and tell the truth about what happened.

“Their Objective Is To Create Fear…”

Posted: 20 Feb 2018 10:12 AM PST

“Their Objective Is To Create Fear…”

Posted on February 20, 2018 by David Nova Leave a comment

There is a famous quote by George Santayana that has many variants: “Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” There is another quote atributed to the Spanish philosopher that is equally appropriate: “Fanaticism consists in redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim.”
However, the larger spiritual lesson should be, when you abandon the pursuit of balance and common sense, you inevitably end up spiraling to an extreme of duality. It matters not who claims to have the moral high ground. Those who make themselves judge and jury to weed out the devil, often end up becoming demonic themselves in their fanatical pursuit of justice. We are seeing this history repeat itself within the Social Justice Warrior movment. The social wheel of karma continues to turn when those who were once perceived as victims become the new victimizers. And as the wheel of karma turns, history repeats itself.



Circa 1520, The Spanish Inquisition at work on suspected Protestants and insincere Christians in a torture chamber. All their gruesome work was carried out in the name of Christianity; note the altar and officiating monks on the right. (Photo by Three Lions/Getty Images)
Authored by Jeff Thomas via InternationalMan.com,
The Social Justice trend has appeared in recent years, and has rapidly gained momentum.
It appeared first on college campuses, where students accused a professor or, indeed, another student, of making a statement or using a word that was deemed socially unacceptable. The premise by the accuser was that a campus must be a safe space, where people should not be exposed to comments that may possibly make anyone feel demeaned or uncomfortable.
The accusers have earned the name “snowflakes,” as they tend to melt down at the slightest provocation. However, the Social Justice trend has given snowflakes considerable power, a power that’s often used recklessly.
Importantly, whether the offensive comment is correct or incorrect is not an issue. The “offense” is that the speaker has stated something that should not ever be mentioned, as it might upset the listener in some way. The “justice” that takes place is that one or more people file a formal complaint with a person or body that holds power over the speaker and demand that he be punished for his “wrongdoing.”
This has led to teachers and professors being warned, suspended, or fired from their positions, based merely on the existence of a complaint. In addition, “offending” students have been warned, suspended, or expelled, again, without what might be regarded as due process.
A related form of Social Justice is the vigilantism seeking to destroy those who are prominent. Former Miss Americas demanded that the entire board of the Miss America Pageant be dismissed for making disparaging remarks about pageant contestants. Several have been forced to resign in disgrace.
And, of course, we’re seeing the rise of complaints against actors, politicians, and other prominent individuals regarding alleged sexual denigration of women, even if it’s merely verbal. In each case, witnesses are “bravely coming forward,” en masse, although they often were silent for decades (if, indeed, the individual incidents ever occurred at all).
Whether a given individual has actually committed a crime or not seems immaterial in the new Social Justice trend. The focus is on vehement condemnation of an individual, usually by a host of others. Importantly, regardless of what process is used to prosecute (or persecute) those accused, a general assumption of the Social Justice trend is that, once someone is accused, he’s guilty and punishment must take place.
But, in fact, this trend is not new. Rabid groups of accusers appear throughout history, generally during times of existing social tension.


The Salem Witch Trials: 1692-1693

In 1692, several young girls claimed to be possessed by witches and group hysteria ensued. Some 150 men, women and children were ultimately accused and nineteen were hanged. Governor William Phips ordered that an end be put to the show trials in 1693. In the process, his wife was accused of being a witch.

The Nazi Sondergerichte: 1933-1945

In Nazi Germany, kangaroo courts were held for those deemed to have committed “political crimes,” resulting in 12,000 deaths. Germans were encouraged to report on each other. (If your neighbor annoyed you, a good recompense was to report him as being disloyal.) The persecution only ended when Nazi Germany was defeated.

The Great Soviet Purge: 1936-1938

Joseph Stalin ran many successful purges against clergymen, wealthy peasants, and oppositionists, but the foremost of them was the Great Purge, which included anyone with a perceived stain on his record. Denunciation was encouraged. The purge was highly successful and, although the show trials ended in 1938, the threat of accusation remained until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991.

The Red Scare – McCarthyism: 1947-1956

US Senator McCarthy accused countless people in Hollywood of being communists. Thousands lost their jobs. McCarthyism ended when he accused the Protestant Church as being a communist support group. He also attacked the US Army as having communists within it. The Army lashed back, exposing McCarthy as cruel, manipulative, and reckless and the public fervor against communists subsided.

The Spanish Inquisition: 1478-1834

The Spanish Inquisition lasted for over 350 years. It was originally conceived by King Ferdinand II as a way to expose and punish heretics and suppress religious dissent.
It was preceded by the French Inquisition and spread to other countries in Europe. At its height, it investigated, prosecuted, and sometimes burned alive some 150,000 people. The last execution was in 1826 – for teaching deist principles (deism, not Christianity, was the predominant religious belief of America’s founding fathers).
Crimes committed included blasphemy, witchcraft, immorality, and behavior unbecoming to a woman. (A woman’s role was seen as being limited to raising a family.) False denunciations were frequent and defendants were only rarely acquitted. The auto-da-fé, or public punishment, including groups of people being burned alive, provided an effective demonstration and satisfied the public’s desire for spectacle.
The inquisition finally ended when King Ferdinand VII and others came to regard the church’s power as being a threat to the government’s power and abolished it.
Others that used the Social Justice approach to great effect were China, Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Egypt (as recently as 2014), and Turkey (as recently as 2016).
And there are many more examples, far too numerous to mention.
In 1970, Monty Python did a series of sketches in which Michael Palin plays a cleric, saying, “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition.”
And, of course, this is true. The Spanish Inquisition, the Salem witch trials, the McCarthy hearings, and the present Social Justice trend, are so over-the-top that their very existence is clearly absurd.
However, historically, whether it be a political leader like Stalin or Hitler, or a religious organisation, like the Catholic Church, or the present-day, self-styled “Social Justice Warriors,” such campaigns begin through the desire for power over others. What they have in common is that anyone can be targeted, group accusations carry greater weight than individual accusations, and the punishment invariably exceeds the level of the offense, if, indeed, there is any unlawful offense at all.
The objective is to create fear. The initiative begins with finger-pointing and mild punishment, such as the loss of a job. But it evolves into a circus that often grows to include more serious punishment, sometimes including execution.
Vigilantism grows out of troubled periods when frustrations and resentment run high. Because it’s emotionally driven, not logic-driven, it almost invariably morphs into irrational victimisation… and is always destructive in nature.

William Cooper Accurately Predicted “Sandy Hook” and Other School Shootings & Terrorism

Posted: 20 Feb 2018 10:14 AM PST

William Cooper Accurately Predicted “Sandy Hook” and Other School Shootings & Terrorism  

As you can see from the date of the article below as well as other posts at Starship Earth, William (Bill) Cooper is not new to we conspiracy analysts. QAnon has pointed new patriots to this icon of (r)evolution this month, and we’re glad he did. Bill deserves it. He’s as much a part of the revolution now as he ever was—perhaps more, because it ‘s just gone live.
William Cooper was a former Army officer and Naval Intelligence Briefing officer with Q clearance and didn’t believe anything unless he saw it with his own eyes, at least until he was privy to a lot of intelligence that demanded he do his own research.
Once he had satisfied his own enquiring mind, he made it his life mission to educate the unaware so they could prevent what he knew was coming. His radio shows, “Hour of the Time”, were riveting and he was precocious and brutal in his delivery. In person at the national conferences he hosted, he was a powerful orator. 
He was deemed such a threat that he was not only beaten and maimed, but later lost his life at the hands of the “SS”.

What Bill saw then is what we see in our headlines in America now. He was absolutely correct, yet so many still don’t recognize reality for what it is. 
No one wants to acknowledge that the New World Order is marching down the streets of America stealing the freedom The People were guaranteed they would always have. They are in denial and believe what they’re told rather than what their own eyes might see. 
The enemy told the simmering pot of frogs the water isn’t hot and they were able to ignore the steam—until it was almost too late.
Those with the corrective lenses necessary are now witnessing the second American Revolution, 21st Century-style where the rules of engagement are… absent. Anything goes, and what happens in America doesn’t stay in America. It affects the rest of the world and all eyes are on the Republic now as the battle of Light and dark rages in the shadows, both on-planet and off. 
The stranglehold of the enemy is all-pervasive, but almost invisible so it’s easy for the average busy person to miss it, or dismiss it.
What are only uncomfortable whispers for some, are now a dull roar for the brave patriots. Soon, because of what is unfolding on the Western front, the theatre of war largely active in Washington, DC, we will all be sovereign Beings again on Earth.
This war is fought with a weapon as benign as the stroke of a pen, yet also with technology most Humans are unaware even exits and through allies we never new we had. If we weren’t witnessing it with our own eyes, we might not believe it.
If you have not yet downloaded and read rebel Bill’s remarkable book, “Behold A Pale Horse”, you can get it here, FREE. 
You might not like this red pill however, which, like most powerful remedies, “tastes awful, but it works.” You will never see your life or the world the same way again.  ~ BP



The Man Who Predicted Sandy Hook Style School Shootings & 9/11 Terrorist Attacks

January 26, 2013
The 1991 book entitled ‘Behold A Pale Horse‘, authored by the man who predicted the false flag attack of 9/11 by CIA asset Osama Bin Laden, also predicted false flag attacks at schools which would be used to attack the 2nd amendment of the United States of America.  Does this sound like what is exactly taking place with the recent massacre at Sandy Hook and the political landscape across the United States?
What is amazing is that this book was written 22 years ago, well before the Columbine High School and Virginia Tech massacre. Bill Cooper accurately describes how the New World Order, aka the Illuminati, would first encourage the saturation of firearm weapons into American society. Then they would stage false flag terrorist attacks on schoolyards by drug induced or mentally ill people. The American people would than willingly give up their 2nd amendment rights.
I took a picture from the book ‘Behold A Pale Horse‘ so you can read the prediction for yourself.  The snap shot image was taken on page 225 in chapter 12, subtitled ‘The Secret Government’.
Here is the transcription for those who want to translate it into their native language.

“The government encouraged the manufacture and importation of firearms for the criminals to use. This is intended to foster a feeling of insecurity, which would lead the American people to voluntarily disarm themselves by passing laws against firearms. Using drugs and hypnosis on mental patients in a process called Orion, the CIA inculcated the desire in these people to open fire on schoolyards and thus inflame the anti-gun lobby. This plan is well under way, and so far is working perfectly. The middle class is begging the government to do away with the 2nd Amendment.” (William Cooper 1991)

What I find also interesting is the accuracy of Mr. Cooper’s statement of shooters who are mentally ill and are on psychotropic drugs.  This issue has been mostly suppressed by main stream media, instead of going after the true cause of these horrific terrorist attacks against schools and innocent civilians, they have diverted everyone’s attention to guns.  Here is an article that shows school shootings and the drugs that the perpetrator was on while committing the crime.  Here are some other articles that exposes the links between psychotropic drugs and school shootings. Article #1Article #2Article #3.
For those of you who do not own the book ‘Behold The Pale Horse‘ should purchase a copy for themselves and get to know who & how the world have been duped by certain elite groups and secretive societies.  If you cannot get your hands on this amazing expose of the secretive government, you can still listen to the entire audio book for free at this link here.
Even President John F. Kennedy warned of a “grave danger” to the American people about secretive organizations who would try to censor and control the people.

“And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment.” JFK – April 27th, 1961

This quote was taken from a speech President John F. Kennedy gave at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on April 27, 1961“The President and the Press” before the American Newspaper Publishers Association.  Another famous quote by JFK from the same speech talks about a “ruthless conspiracy” to infiltrate the United States of America via covert means to establish control over the people.

For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.

Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.” JFK – April 27th, 1961

Here is a YouTube video in which someone produced which has the speech with subtitles so you can follow along a little bit easier.  Who would have thought JFK was a conspiracy theorist?
Going back to William Cooper and his incredible accuracies in predicting events.  Please consider listening to his most famous prediction of the 9/11 false flag terrorist event that took place on his radio show on June 28th, 2001.  Absolutely amazing that he named Osama Bin Laden as the scapegoat for the coming terrorist attack against the American people.  See the video below for his insights into the 9/11 prediction.

So there you have it. I hope I brought to you some information to further you along in your search for truth and if you already knew this stuff, then kudos to you!
We need to spread the word and back up the claims that this world’s system of governments are absolutely corrupted to the core. The more people who wake up from the deep sleep of mind control and main stream media propaganda, the harder it will be for the psychopathic killers who lurk behind a secretive veil to control the sovereign people of earth.

Abnormal square clouds are forming around the world and nobody can explain why

It’s unusual, incredible, strange and totally wrong. Clouds should not look like a square. But such clouds that began appearing all across over our planet in recent years are now constantly increasing… And this is alarming!



https://youtu.be/LVwS1e-BdvU

What are the reasons for these strange cloud formations? What’s behind this strange weather phenomenon? Can nature really create clouds in the form of a square with an angle of 90 degrees? Impossible!
Mysterious square clouds over Devon, UK. Via Daily Mail
A result of HAARP? Another proof of climate control? Geoengineering – weather management?
Strange square cloud over Tucson Arizona. Via Youtube video
Is there someone on Earth who can shape clouds in this way? with what technologies? We can control rain, hail and lightning using geoengineering so why not clouds.

https://youtu.be/YU5Lpy3DZn8

So what’s behing those clouds? There are many options, but none of them has one hundred percent confirmation.

Scientists use CRISPR to tweak butterfly wing color, change wing scale surface structure

Scientists use CRISPR to tweak butterfly wing color, change wing scale surface structure

Pigments and the fine structure of butterfly wing scales work together to generate a mosaic of colors and patterns that help the insect camouflage or attract mates. On July 3, in the journal Cell Reports, scientists show how it only takes a few pigment genes to modify both the color and the morphology of wing scales. The researchers used CRISPR/Cas9 to tweak wing colors of the squinting bush brown butterfly of East Africa Bicyclus anynana and found that it resulted in changes to the scales’ surface structure and rigidity, as well as color. The results show how pigmentation genes have dual roles in the formation of wing scales.
“Our research indicates that the color and structure of wing scales are intimately related because pigment molecules also affect the structure of scales,” says senior author Antónia Monteiro, a biologist at the National University of Singapore’s Faculty of Science and Yale-NUS College in Singapore. “Some end products of the melanin pathway, which produces butterfly wing pigments, play a role in both scale pigmentation and scale morphology.”
Postdoctoral fellow Yuji Matsuoka artificially disabled five of B. anynana’s pigment genes using CRISPR/Cas9 to better understand how each contributed to the butterfly’s wing color. Surprisingly, the mutations altered details of the wing scale structure, too. When a mutation prevented the pigment dopa-melanin from being generated, an extra sheet of chitin, a fibrous component of the exoskeleton, formed horizontally on the upper surface of the wing scale. And when a different mutation blocked the pigment dopamin-melanin, vertical blades of chitin appeared.
“Some butterflies can have vivid hues just by having simple thin films of chitin on their scales that interfere with incoming light to create shades known as structural colors without producing corresponding pigments,” says Monteiro. “Light beams reflecting off the top and bottom surfaces of the chitin layer can interfere with each other and accentuate specific colors depending on the thickness of the film, so our results might be interesting in this context.”

Wing colors and patterns are critical for butterflies to hide from predators and signal potential mates; should the mutations introduced in the lab occur naturally, they could jeopardize the insects’ survival and reproduction. “Butterfly color has always been described as either pigmentary or structural, but our work identifies the first candidate genes that may constrain the evolution of both of these forms of generating color,” says Monteiro.
“The morphology of wing scales is highly diverged; however, the genetic and molecular mechanisms underlying the development of butterfly wing scales have just started to be studied, and melanin products are one of the multiple molecules likely playing a role in this process,” says Matsuoka. “Further studies using other butterfly species and other cuticular components will help us understand more about the evolution and development of butterfly wing scales.”

“If we understand the developmental genetics of color, biotech companies of the future might be able to generate vivid, brilliant colors via bioengineering, based on butterfly scales, instead of having to nano-manufacture them using metals, which is currently extremely difficult to do,” Monteiro says. “These chitin-based colors would be lasting, biodegradable, and environmentally friendly.”

Elon Musk is sending engineers from his SpaceX and The Boring Co. companies to aid in the rescue of a youth soccer team in Thailand that’s trapped in a cave and running out of time.
Twelve boys and their 25-year-old soccer coach have been trapped in the Tham Luang cave in Thailand for almost two weeks as of today (July 6). The boys, who range in age from 11 to 16, were exploring the cave when a flash flood trapped them. As oxygen levels continue to drop, the boys are getting more and more exhausted, which in turn is leading to malnourishment among them. In addition, heavy rain is forecast this weekend for the area. Worried authorities say they fear time is running out to save the team.
Former Thai navy SEAL diver Saman Gunan (also reported as “Kunan”) died early this morning (July 6) while working as a volunteer alongside a rescue team. Despite the rescue mission’s extreme difficulty and danger, Musk is hopeful that his engineers can come up with a solution before it’s too late.

“SpaceX & Boring Co engineers headed to Thailand tomorrow to see if we can be helpful to govt. There are probably many complexities that are hard to appreciate without being there in person,” Musk wrote via Twitter early this morning.

Looks like 1st bit of water is close enough to entrance to be pumped out. 2nd & 3rd would need battery packs, air pumps & tubes. If depth of 2nd is accurate, would need ~0.5 bar tube pressure. Prob need to enter tube, zip up & then transit.

It seems like Musk’s aid mission began on Twitter. Twitter user @MabzMagz tweeted at Musk, asking if there were any way the billionaire entrepreneur — who runs the electric-car company Tesla — might be able to help. Musk responded and discussed possible solutions on Twitter with @MabzMagz and entrepreneur @Jamesworldspace.
Noting the relevant experience of these engineers, Musk added on Twitter that The Boring Co. “is pretty good at digging holes.” (The company aims to alleviate traffic congestion in big cities by establishing a network of tunnels.)

A rescuer worker walks between the hoses which are carrying water out of Tham Luang Nang Non cave on July 5, 2018 in Chiang Rai, Thailand, where rescue crews are working to retrieve 12 boys and their soccer coach after nearly two weeks trapped in a cave. Videos released by the Thai Navy SEAL shows the boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 15-year-old and the challenge now will be to extract the party safely.

Neither Musk nor his companies’ representatives have yet to disclose any concrete rescue plans. However, “Once we confirm what exactly will be helpful to send or do, we will. We are getting feedback and guidance from the people on the ground in Chiang Rai to determine the best way for us to assist their efforts,” a spokesperson for The Boring Co. told The Verge.
So far, over 1,000 people are involved in the rescue of the boys and their coach, as reported by Live Science. Musk hopes that the additional input and help of his engineers will lead to a life-saving solution.
So far, Musk has posed a few hypothetical solutions on Twitter, including potentially inserting “a 1m diameter nylon tube (or shorter set of tubes for most difficult sections) through cave network & inflate with air like a bouncy castle. Should create an air tunnel underwater against cave roof & auto-conform to odd shapes like the 70cm hole.”

SpaceX team reached out to us today to help connect to Thai govt. Our team connected and provided some prep feedback to your team. For pumps, cave has narrowest 70cm cross section and about 5km to 13 guys. For vertical drill, it’s about 1/2 mile down and tricky

Iran just Accused the West of Engineering Drought for the 2nd Time

Posted: 11 Jul 2018 11:38 AM PDT

Iran just Accused the West of Engineering Drought for the 2nd Time
Markab Algedi 

  • Jul 5, 2018

Iran Brigadier General Gholam Reza Jalali, the man in charge of Iran’s Civil Defense Organization recently came out and openly said Iran’s clouds were being “stolen” by Israel and another nation in the region.
He said that they were altering the clouds before they pass over Iran.

(Image credit: Metro)

He described the exact same thing that others in America, specifically California have observed about drought: the skies are sprayed, and then the rain doesn’t fall.
Photographic evidence can easily verify that the skies are sprayed over Israel and Turkey, and if they tested the rain like independent researchers did in California, they would probably find the signature geoengineering materials aluminum, barium, and strontium, like California.

For years, Iranian leaders have been painting a picture of geoengineering over the Mediterranean. They have described technology being used to make the rain clouds passing over Iran not fall. They seem to be describing a situation in which the skies are sprayed just West of Iran over the Mediterranean, and then the rain does not fall in Iran, until it skips the country and rains or snows further East.
People who know about geoengineering, sprayed skies, and drought don’t find this description to be difficult to understand. In contrast, this is how the mainstream is reporting on it.
At a conference, the general said “The changing climate in Iran is suspect. Foreign interference is suspected to have played a role in climate change.”
He went on to say that a scientific study in Iran was performed, and it confirmed the claims made by Iranians, including former president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad in 2012.

Will this study be released to the public outside of Iran? People aware of sprayed skies and geoengineering can only hope that it is released.
“Israel and another country in the region have joint teams which work to ensure clouds entering Iranian skies are unable to release rain,” the general continued.
“On top of that, we are facing the issue of cloud and snow theft,” the general continued. He cited a survey which shows that above 2,200 meters, all nearby mountainous areas between the Mediterranean and Afghanistan are covered by snow, except Iran.

The tabloid mainstream media were the primary ones in the West to pick this story up. If they belittle it, you know it’s probably striking a nerve.

A Metro article from the UK found an Iranian meteorological service figure to counter the claims. “Iran has suffered a prolonged drought, and this is a global trend that does not apply only to Iran,” the head of Iran’s meteorological service Ahad Vazife said.
Yeah, and the Iranian scientists and government officials are boldly not backing down when it comes to figuring out why it’s a “global trend.” It’s a global trend because in certain areas, spraying and weather modification seems to be happening, on every continent. Iran has obviously been hit much worse.

North Korea also just happens to be facing several year long, terrible drought.
This issue goes so much deeper than the drought in Iran, or the drought in California: that is, the issue of the skies being secretly sprayed with aluminum to modify the weather, or even openly sprayed with aluminum as part of a public relations campaign to “stop global warming” with ulterior motives.


(Image credit: University of Leeds)

Persia, in modern times known as Iran, has been the number one enemy of Western power since the birth of Western civilization. The longest conflict in world history, at least recorded history was between various Roman and Persian empires, and due to Persia’s protection provided by the mountainous region of Afghanistan and several other factors, it has remained unconquerable yet.
Many understand that drought is being caused in locations around the world with the spraying of the skies, and as it seems, facilities on the ground that beam a type of electromagnetic current through the stratosphere to guide weather systems, or make rain not fall in a particular area.
Those who have diligently studied the skies being sprayed over them, and the things that happened in their area after that, all notice that drought immediately follows a period of time where spraying is increased.
You can smell it, you can test the rain and find the known, proven components of geoengineering material, aluminum, barium, strontium, and the evidence can be examined closely here in this free PDF version of a book critical to this issue.

However if you’re skeptical of this being real, please do keep reading and if you care to do so, research all of this. Check the evidence for the existence of this entire field of science, geoengineering, in this book and check those sources.
This may become one of the worst problems of our time in the next several decades. For the next several decades, our health may decline worse and worse as governments start to spray whatever they want on us, in addition to the geoengineering materials.

(Image credit: SS)

Being as real as I possibly can writing this, I just hope people see this situation for what it is as soon as possible.
We’re being sprayed. Every day you can smell it on your clothing when you go inside, difficult to smell while it’s in the air, but easy to smell once a person who has been outside enters the room covered in it and there is contrast between the odors.

What you’re smelling on people when they come inside, the stuff that smells like a mix between a wet dog and an aluminum welding shop, or a plastic slide at a playground, a static electricity or plasticky type smell: that’s aluminum and barium mostly, and a few other things. It’s being sprayed in the US, across Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, Central America, Oceania, it’s global.

https://youtu.be/ckAJdtavnJY

Some find it difficult to believe something can be sprayed on such a massive level. A nuclear physicist in San Diego believes they may produce the material to spray from coal fly ash, an abundant waste product.
Weather modification seems to be the entire reason why so much talk of global warming remains in the media, and under the guise of stopping global warming, scientists (and the ex-CIA director and others) are trying to raise public support for openly spraying the skies with aluminum to “reflect the light back into space.”

For over a year, we’ve been writing articles about how Harvard scientists were about to spray the sky in Arizona as part of a geoengineering “test,” as if they aren’t already spraying, to justify a paradigm of weather warfare under “stopping global warming.”
Now the study is being performed in Arizona. They’re inching closer to openly spraying the skies every day, with greater quantities of aluminum and toxic materials than right now.

(Image credit: harvard)

Truth is, they don’t want to reflect light and cool the planet by spraying the stratosphere with aluminum, they want to openly do what they’ve already been doing for about 2 decades constantly.
They want to alter the weather across the entire planet with sprayed aerosols and ground based technology, letting rain and drought hit whichever regions they prefer, while everybody believes it’s some altruistic necessity to protect us from global warming.

(Image credit: phys)

The above diagram claims that aerosol sprayed into the stratosphere will not fall onto clouds. How would it stay up there? We can already clearly observe it falling down after being sprayed, clearly smell it, clearly experience symptoms from it after it falls down, and we can see it mix with the clouds and cause rain to not fall.
Within a few decades, our children might be growing up with an outlook that if we don’t have the skies sprayed every day, the world will end due to climate change.
In a few decades, people could easily be in a state of fear to where they don’t even want the spraying to stop, because they’ve been so indoctrinated and manipulated into believing we need sprayed skies.
Please share this with as many people as possible.

Wealthy Elite Reveal Plans To Leave Earth Before ‘Imminent’ Apocalypse

Posted: 15 Jul 2018 01:32 PM PDT

Wealthy Elite Reveal Plans To Leave Earth Before ‘Imminent’ Apocalypse
July 14, 2018 Sean Adl-Tabatabai

The wealthy elite are making preparations to leave planet Earth ahead of an imminent apocalyptic event that will render our planet completely inhabitable.
After interviewing a number of high-profile billionaires, documentary maker Douglas Rushkoff discovered that the world’s richest people are urgently making preparations to leave us all behind.

Rushkoff writes: Last year, I got invited to a super-deluxe private resort to deliver a keynote speech to what I assumed would be a hundred or so investment bankers. It was by far the largest fee I had ever been offered for a talk — about half my annual professor’s salary — all to deliver some insight on the subject of “the future of technology.”
I’ve never liked talking about the future. The Q&A sessions always end up more like parlor games, where I’m asked to opine on the latest technology buzzwords as if they were ticker symbols for potential investments: blockchain, 3D printing, CRISPR. The audiences are rarely interested in learning about these technologies or their potential impacts beyond the binary choice of whether or not to invest in them. But money talks, so I took the gig.
After I arrived, I was ushered into what I thought was the green room. But instead of being wired with a microphone or taken to a stage, I just sat there at a plain round table as my audience was brought to me: five super-wealthy guys — yes, all men — from the upper echelon of the hedge fund world. After a bit of small talk, I realized they had no interest in the information I had prepared about the future of technology. They had come with questions of their own.
They started out innocuously enough. Ethereum or bitcoin? Is quantum computing a real thing? Slowly but surely, however, they edged into their real topics of concern.
Which region will be less impacted by the coming climate crisis: New Zealand or Alaska? Is Google really building Ray Kurzweil a home for his brain, and will his consciousness live through the transition, or will it die and be reborn as a whole new one? Finally, the CEO of a brokerage house explained that he had nearly completed building his own underground bunker system and asked, “How do I maintain authority over my security force after the event?”

The Event. That was their euphemism for the environmental collapse, social unrest, nuclear explosion, unstoppable virus, or Mr. Robot hack that takes everything down.
This single question occupied us for the rest of the hour. They knew armed guards would be required to protect their compounds from the angry mobs. But how would they pay the guards once money was worthless? What would stop the guards from choosing their own leader? The billionaires considered using special combination locks on the food supply that only they knew. Or making guards wear disciplinary collars of some kind in return for their survival. Or maybe building robots to serve as guards and workers — if that technology could be developed in time.
That’s when it hit me: At least as far as these gentlemen were concerned, this was a talk about the future of technology. Taking their cue from Elon Musk colonizing Mars, Peter Thiel reversing the aging process, or Sam Altman and Ray Kurzweil uploading their minds into supercomputers, they were preparing for a digital future that had a whole lot less to do with making the world a better place than it did with transcending the human condition altogether and insulating themselves from a very real and present danger of climate change, rising sea levels, mass migrations, global pandemics, nativist panic, and resource depletion. For them, the future of technology is really about just one thing: escape.
There’s nothing wrong with madly optimistic appraisals of how technology might benefit human society. But the current drive for a post-human utopia is something else. It’s less a vision for the wholesale migration of humanity to a new a state of being than a quest to transcend all that is human: the body, interdependence, compassion, vulnerability, and complexity. As technology philosophers have been pointing out for years, now, the transhumanist vision too easily reduces all of reality to data, concluding that “humans are nothing but information-processing objects.”
It’s a reduction of human evolution to a video game that someone wins by finding the escape hatch and then letting a few of his BFFs come along for the ride. Will it be Musk, Bezos, Thiel…Zuckerberg? These billionaires are the presumptive winners of the digital economy — the same survival-of-the-fittest business landscape that’s fueling most of this speculation to begin with.
‘The most important’ thing Jeff Bezos is working on has hit another milestone   4:23 PM ET Mon, 30 April 2018 | 01:06
Of course, it wasn’t always this way. There was a brief moment, in the early 1990s, when the digital future felt open-ended and up for our invention. Technology was becoming a playground for the counterculture, who saw in it the opportunity to create a more inclusive, distributed, and pro-human future. But established business interests only saw new potentials for the same old extraction, and too many technologists were seduced by unicorn IPOs. Digital futures became understood more like stock futures or cotton futures — something to predict and make bets on. So nearly every speech, article, study, documentary, or white paper was seen as relevant only insofar as it pointed to a ticker symbol. The future became less a thing we create through our present-day choices or hopes for humankind than a predestined scenario we bet on with our venture capital but arrive at passively.
This freed everyone from the moral implications of their activities. Technology development became less a story of collective flourishing than personal survival. Worse, as I learned, to call attention to any of this was to unintentionally cast oneself as an enemy of the market or an anti-technology curmudgeon.
So instead of considering the practical ethics of impoverishing and exploiting the many in the name of the few, most academics, journalists, and science-fiction writers instead considered much more abstract and fanciful conundrums: Is it fair for a stock trader to use smart drugs? Should children get implants for foreign languages? Do we want autonomous vehicles to prioritize the lives of pedestrians over those of its passengers? Should the first Mars colonies be run as democracies? Does changing my DNA undermine my identity? Should robots have rights?
Asking these sorts of questions, while philosophically entertaining, is a poor substitute for wrestling with the real moral quandaries associated with unbridled technological development in the name of corporate capitalism. Digital platforms have turned an already exploitative and extractive marketplace (think Walmart) into an even more dehumanizing successor (think Amazon). Most of us became aware of these downsides in the form of automated jobs, the gig economy, and the demise of local retail.
But the more devastating impacts of pedal-to-the-metal digital capitalism fall on the environment and global poor. The manufacture of some of our computers and smartphones still uses networks of slave labor. These practices are so deeply entrenched that a company called Fairphone, founded from the ground up to make and market ethical phones, learned it was impossible. (The company’s founder now sadly refers to their products as “fairer” phones.)
Meanwhile, the mining of rare earth metals and disposal of our highly digital technologies destroys human habitats, replacing them with toxic waste dumps, which are then picked over by peasant children and their families, who sell usable materials back to the manufacturers.
This “out of sight, out of mind” externalization of poverty and poison doesn’t go away just because we’ve covered our eyes with VR goggles and immersed ourselves in an alternate reality. If anything, the longer we ignore the social, economic, and environmental repercussions, the more of a problem they become. This, in turn, motivates even more withdrawal, more isolationism and apocalyptic fantasy — and more desperately concocted technologies and business plans. The cycle feeds itself.
The more committed we are to this view of the world, the more we come to see human beings as the problem and technology as the solution. The very essence of what it means to be human is treated less as a feature than bug. No matter their embedded biases, technologies are declared neutral. Any bad behaviors they induce in us are just a reflection of our own corrupted core. It’s as if some innate human savagery is to blame for our troubles. Just as the inefficiency of a local taxi market can be “solved” with an app that bankrupts human drivers, the vexing inconsistencies of the human psyche can be corrected with a digital or genetic upgrade.
Ultimately, according to the technosolutionist orthodoxy, the human future climaxes by uploading our consciousness to a computer or, perhaps better, accepting that technology itself is our evolutionary successor. Like members of a gnostic cult, we long to enter the next transcendent phase of our development, shedding our bodies and leaving them behind, along with our sins and troubles.
Our movies and television shows play out these fantasies for us. Zombie shows depict a post-apocalypse where people are no better than the undead — and seem to know it. Worse, these shows invite viewers to imagine the future as a zero-sum battle between the remaining humans, where one group’s survival is dependent on another one’s demise. Even Westworld — based on a science-fiction novel where robots run amok — ended its second season with the ultimate reveal: Human beings are simpler and more predictable than the artificial intelligences we create. The robots learn that each of us can be reduced to just a few lines of code, and that we’re incapable of making any willful choices. Heck, even the robots in that show want to escape the confines of their bodies and spend their rest of their lives in a computer simulation.
The mental gymnastics required for such a profound role reversal between humans and machines all depend on the underlying assumption that humans suck. Let’s either change them or get away from them, forever.
Thus, we get tech billionaires launching electric cars into space — as if this symbolizes something more than one billionaire’s capacity for corporate promotion. And if a few people do reach escape velocity and somehow survive in a bubble on Mars — despite our inability to maintain such a bubble even here on Earth in either of two multibillion-dollar Biosphere trials — the result will be less a continuation of the human diaspora than a lifeboat for the elite.
When the hedge funders asked me the best way to maintain authority over their security forces after “the event,” I suggested that their best bet would be to treat those people really well, right now. They should be engaging with their security staffs as if they were members of their own family. And the more they can expand this ethos of inclusivity to the rest of their business practices, supply chain management, sustainability efforts, and wealth distribution, the less chance there will be of an “event” in the first place. All this technological wizardry could be applied toward less romantic but entirely more collective interests right now.
They were amused by my optimism, but they didn’t really buy it. They were not interested in how to avoid a calamity; they’re convinced we are too far gone. For all their wealth and power, they don’t believe they can affect the future. They are simply accepting the darkest of all scenarios and then bringing whatever money and technology they can employ to insulate themselves — especially if they can’t get a seat on the rocket to Mars.
Luckily, those of us without the funding to consider disowning our own humanity have much better options available to us. We don’t have to use technology in such antisocial, atomizing ways. We can become the individual consumers and profiles that our devices and platforms want us to be, or we can remember that the truly evolved human doesn’t go it alone.
Being human is not about individual survival or escape. It’s a team sport. Whatever future humans have, it will be together.

Long-lasting daylight fireball over Western Siberia, impact reported, Russia

A bright daylight fireball was recorded over Western Siberia during late afternoon hours of August 4, 2018 (local time). The event lasted up to 20 seconds.

The event was recorded from several towns, including Yugansk and Surgut, and reported that it landed in a remote area.

Hundreds record long-lasting bright fireball over Australia, meteorites likely near Canberra

A very bright fireball streaked across the night sky over New South Wales and Victoria, Australia around 08:30 UTC (18:30local time) on August 4, 2018. The event lasted for more than 8 seconds and was recorded by hundreds of people. Astronomers said the object could have been between the size of a basketball and a fridge.
Hundreds of people reported seeing the meteor, David Finlay of Australian Meteor Reports said. Witnesses described a spectacular, bright orange or red to green and blue fireball.
“It was traveling east to west at super speed. It had a beautiful long bright blue tail. It split in two and then vanished. I’ve spent the last hour researching fireballs and now I’m completely hooked,” Ms. Javs wrote on AMR’s Facebook page.
Finlay said up to 700 people had joined his Facebook page since the sighting.
“I’m very confident that this meteor was large enough to survive to the ground,” he said.
According to his preliminary analysis, meteorites might have fallen around Cooma, near the Snowy Mountains south of Canberra.

According to RT, the emergencies ministry said it’s unaware of whatever dazzled the locals.

Some suggested it was a piece of a rocket burning up the atmosphere due to its entry angle and long-lasting nature.

There were no planned re-entries for August 4.

Mystery meteor reportedly exploded with 2.1 kilotons of force above a US military base — and the Air Force said nothing

Mystery meteor reportedly exploded with 2.1 kilotons of force above a US military base — and the Air Force said nothing

  • Credible reports of a meteor exploding with 2.1 kilotons of force above a US Air Force early-warning radar at Thule Air Base in Greenland have surfaced.
  • The Air Force has been silent on the event.
  • Data from NASA shows a record of an object of unspecified size traveling at 24.4 kilometers per second (about 54,000 mph, or Mach 74) almost directly over Thule, Greenland.

A curious and credible tweet from the director of the Nuclear Information Project for the Federation of American Scientists, Hans Kristensen, on Wednesday at 5:14 p.m. ET said: “Meteor explodes with 2.1 kilotons force 43 km above missile early warning radar at Thule Air Base.”
That tweet apparently originated from a tweet on Tuesday afternoon by “Rocket Ron,” whose profile says they’re a “Space Explorer at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory.” The original tweet said: “A fireball was detected over Greenland on July 25, 2018 by US Government sensors at an altitude of 43.3 km. The energy from the explosion is estimated to be 2.1 kilotons.”

The incident is fascinating for a long list of reasons, not least of which is how the Air Force integrates the use of social media reporting (and non-reporting) into its official flow of information. As of this writing, no reporting about any such event appears on the public news website of the 12th Space Warning Squadron based at Thule, the 21st Space Wing, or the wing’s 821st Air Base Group that operates and maintains Thule Air Base in support of missile warning, space surveillance, and satellite command-and-control operations missions.

Data from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory shows a record of an object of unspecified size traveling at 24.4 kilometers per second (about 54,000 mph, or Mach 74) at 76.9 degrees north latitude, 69.0 degrees west longitude, on July 25 at 11:55 p.m. That latitude and longitude checks out as almost directly over Thule, Greenland.

According to NASA, its Near-Earth Object program database for objects entering the atmosphere shows that: “The data indicate that Earth’s atmosphere was impacted by small asteroids, resulting in a bolide (or fireball), on 556 separate occasions in a 20-year period. Almost all asteroids of this size disintegrate in the atmosphere and are usually harmless.” That is a rate of one asteroid, or “bolide,” every 13 days over the 20-year study.
But there are exceptions.
You may recall the sensational YouTube and social media videos of the very large Chelyabinsk meteor that struck the earth on February 15, 2013. Luckily, it entered the Earth’s atmosphere at a shallow trajectory and largely disintegrated. Had it entered at a more perpendicular angle, it might have struck the Earth with significantly greater force. Scientists report that Chelyabinsk was the largest meteor to hit the Earth in the modern recording period, over 60 feet (20 meters) in diameter. Over 7,000 buildings were damaged and about 1,500 people were injured in the incident.

What is perhaps most haunting about the Chelyabinsk meteor — and perhaps, we may learn, this most recent Greenland incident — is that there was no warning (at least, not publicly). No satellites in orbit detected the Chelyabinsk meteor, and no early-warning system knew it was coming, according to scientists. Because the radiant or origin of the Chelyabinsk meteor was out of the sun, it was difficult to detect in advance. It arrived with total surprise.
Northern Russia seems to be a magnet for titanic meteor strikes. The Tunguska event of 1908 was a meteor that struck in the Krasnoyarsk Krai region of Siberia. It flattened over 770 square miles of Siberian taiga forest but curiously seems to have left no crater, suggesting it likely disintegrated entirely about 6 miles above the Earth. The massive damage done to the taiga forest was from the shockwave of the object entering the atmosphere prior to disintegration. While this recent Greenland event is very large, at 2.1 kilotons (2,100 tons of TNT) of force for the explosion, the Tunguska event is estimated to have been as large as 15 megatons (15 million tons of TNT).
It will be interesting to see how (and if) popular news media and the official defense news outlets process this recent Greenland incident. But while we wait to see how the media responds as the Twitter dust settles, it’s worth at least a minor exhale knowing this is another big object that missed hitting the Earth in a different location at a different angle and potentially with a different outcome.
