750,000 Protesters Clog Barcelona Streets, Demands Release Of “Political Prisoners” ~ ZeroHedge


 

Note: GO SPAIN!!! This is an amazing show of unity in Barcelona.  There were a few tweets that didn’t copy and paste into the text, please follow the source link at the bottom to see the tweets and witness how protests in America would look without paid thugs by opposing forces and those attempting to foment a civil war.

Hundreds of thousands of people – 750,000 according to Barcelona police – backing Catalonia’s bid to secede from Spain clogged the streets in downtown Barcelona Saturday to demand the release of jailed separatist leaders.

.

Close to a million people filled the length of the Avenue Marina that runs from the beach to Barcelona’s iconic Sagrada Familia church, while the jailed leaders’ families made speeches.

As AP reports, the rally’s grassroots organizers called for 10 prominent members of the secessionist movement in the northeastern Spanish region to be freed from prison.

Eight former members of Catalonia’s dissolved Cabinet and two activists are in jail while Spanish authorities investigate their alleged roles in promoting an illegal declaration of independence last month in violation of Spain’s Constitution.

A separate court in Madrid granted bail on Thursday to another six Catalan lawmakers – including Catalan parliament’s speaker Carme Forcadell – also being investigated over the secession push. Forcadell was released after agreeing to renounce any political activity that went against the Spanish constitution, according to the court’s ruling, in effect banning her from campaigning for independence in the December election. Those terms threaten to undermine the independence movement just as cracks are starting to appear and tensions rise between the grassroots and their leaders.

Still, there were few cracks on display Saturday: “We want to tell the world that we want freedom for our prisoners and freedom for Catalonia,” Agusti Alcoberro, the vice president of grassroots group National Catalan Assembly, told the crowd in Barcelona, the region’s capital.

Many of the protesters carried pro-independence “estelada” flags, with its white star and blue triangle superimposed over the traditional red-and-yellow Catalan colors.

“Look at all the people here,” said 63-year-old Pep Morales, who was confident separatist parties would win in the 21 December election. “The independence movement is still going strong.”

Many also held signs saying in Catalan “Freedom Political Prisoners” and wore yellow ribbons as a symbol of their demands.

Family members of the jailed separatists read messages from their loved ones to the crowd at the conclusion of the march.

While those separatist leaders now in jail obeyed a summons to appear in court in Madrid, deposed Catalan president Carles Puigdemont and four of his former ministers fled to Belgium, where they now await an extradition hearing to return them to Spain.

Addressing the rally in Barcelona via a video message shown on a large screen, Puigdemont said: “We need you all to be very active. We want to hear your voice, both those of us in Brussels and those in prison.”

Volunteer Pilots Swoop Into Puerto Rico With Supplies and Leave With Survivors


Paul Weissman/Facebook

ANGELS

They came from as far away as Connecticut at a moment’s notice, landing at an airport without radar, and taking off with women and children.

Paul Weismann got the call for help Monday night at his home in Connecticut. By Tuesday afternoon, he was flying to Puerto Rico on his personal plane, with food, water, and power generators as his passengers.

“You fly over Puerto Rico on the way to the airport, and you see the place is wrecked,” Weismann told The Daily Beast. At night, “a few streets and highways are lit up, because of people and businesses with generators. But the rest of the island was just pitch black.”

After landing on the island destroyed by Hurricane Maria last week, Weismann reloaded his plane—this time with young children, mothers, and senior citizens—and took off for the U.S. mainland.

Weismann isn’t a professional rescue pilot though. He’s a Connecticut-based investor working with Patient Airlift Services (PALS), a network of volunteer pilots. PALS mobilized pilots from across the U.S. to help Texas, Florida, and now Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands this hurricane season.

“You name it, we’ve done it,” said Eileen Minogue, the executive director of PALS. “We literally jumped into the deep end together to provide disaster relief and it just hasn’t stopped. We’ve been working for 30 days in a row right now pretty much round the clock just trying to provide support first in Houston and now in the islands.”

Her group, which usually provides airlift relief support within the United State’s northeast region, has partnered with other nonprofits to serve hurricane-stricken regions in Texas, Florida, and now the Caribbean. Since Maria hit, PALS has sent volunteer pilots to Caribbean islands like Puerto Rico daily, bringing satellite phones, water filters, generators, tarps, hammers, and medical supplies.

Paul Weissman/Facebook

Pilots flew to Puerto Rico at their own risk; the storm disabled several traffic-control radars in San Juan.

“The hurricane knocked out all their radars, and I think most of their radio communications,” Weismann said. “They have technical teams, but the roads are all blocked, and the radars are up on the mountains.”

Much of Weismann’s work has been delivering supplies to air traffic controllers, so the airport can handle more planes. But he and other PALS pilots have also worked to evacuate some people to Florida, especially young children and senior citizens. Those chosen for evacuation are vetted through FEMA or other philanthropic groups on the ground.

Paul Weissman/Facebook

Bob Lambert is a pilot from Michigan and has flown rescue missions for the past 10 years. He said he recently evacuated around 20 people, including children and their chaperones, from St. Thomas after flying rescue workers to the island.

“What becomes a little difficult mentally when you evacuate people, is deciding who really needs to go first,” he said. “That’s always a tough one mentally for me… That’s the emotional drain, making sure the people are safe and doing the best you can for the people.”

Paul Weissman/Facebook

On Thursday morning, Weismann had evacuated 16 people, and was flying to Dominica, where he planned to evacuate more. Sometimes, as was the case with four mothers and their young children, Weismann coordinated with families to plan evacuations in advance. But spotty post-hurricane cellphone service meant that some planned evacuations fell through.

“People are contacting me asking if I can bring people out,” he said. “These contacts try to get in touch with people, telling them to get to the airport at the agreed time and find me. But they can’t get ahold of anybody because the phones are so terrible and spotty. People’s phones are going dead and can’t be recharged because they have no power.”

Paul Weissman/Facebook

Fortunately, communications are still working from the air. Lambert said the only difference between flying to a storm-ravaged area and flying under normal conditions is that pilots need to carry extra fuel for the plane in case they receive incorrect information about landing conditions and have to turn back.

Paul Weissman/Facebook

“It’s just human nature to try and help,” Lambert said. Small aircraft like those he and fellow PALS volunteers fly are “not a long-term necessity but the ability to react immediately and get on station quickly and land at small airports… we can literally respond in minutes or hours given the large number of airplanes that are willing to do this.”

Paul Weissman/Facebook

Minogue said PALS expects to continue their efforts in Puerto Rico for the next four to six weeks.

“It just has escalated,” she said. “The 150 flights that we did in Harvey was a piece of cake compared to what we’re having to do in the islands.

Weismann said with increased demand has come a flood of volunteers.

Paul Weissman/Facebook

“There’s hundreds of people coming out of chartered airlines,” Weismann said. “And firefighters, park service workers, forestry workers, rangers, and police. I saw a lot of FDNY there stacked up, ready to go inland and deploy. It was pretty moving to see what’s going on.”

Animal Legal Defense Fund Sues Landry’s Inc. for Endangered Species Act Violations


Posted on September 26, 2017

article-10

Four tigers are always indoors, suffer substandard conditions

Contact: Natalia Lima, nlima@aldf.org, 201-679-7088

HOUSTON– Today the Animal Legal Defense Fund filed suit against Houston’s Downtown Aquarium and Landry’s Inc., representing Houston-area resident Cheryl Conley, alleging violations of the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA) due to the treatment of four tigers, who are kept in substandard conditions at the Aquarium.

The tigers at the heart of the case—Nero, Marina, Coral and Reef—have been housed indoors at the Downtown Aquarium for more than 13 years without adequate access to sunlight, fresh air or natural surfaces. These living conditions are inadequate for tigers and violate the ESA, which has protected tigers since 1970.

“These tigers have spent over a decade confined to small spaces—with cement and stone flooring. Deprived of walking on dirt and grass, breathing fresh air, and feeling the sun’s warmth,” says Animal Legal Defense Fund Executive Director Stephen Wells. “The cages provided in no way mimic a tiger’s natural environment—which makes many of their natural behaviors—like running, swimming or engaging in stalking or hunting behaviors –impossible.”

At the Downtown Aquarium, the tigers’ entire world is limited to a few hundred square feet. The tigers divide all their time between a small metal cage outside of the public’s view and a public concrete viewing area. Their only sources of sunlight are small windows and skylights; the floor they walk on is hard and unyielding. The tigers lack the opportunity to engage in the full range of their natural behaviors—including solidarity. In the wild, tigers cover a range of up to 40 square miles and can be extremely territorial.

The tigers’ living conditions starkly contrast with the decades-long trend to place captive tigers in more natural habitats. Of the more than 100 facilities accredited by the Association of Zoos and Aquariums that house tigers in the United States, only one other facility does not have an outdoor exhibit for the tigers: the Downtown Aquarium in Denver, also owned by Landry’s.

This lawsuit comes after the Animal Legal Defense Fund previously served Landry’s with a notice of intent to sue, offering to forego the lawsuit if the company accepted the group’s offer to rehome the tigers to a reputable sanctuary at no cost to Landry’s. Instead, Landry’s Inc. and the Downtown Aquarium Inc. filed their own lawsuit claiming the Animal Legal Defense Fund defamed Landry’s by publicly commenting on the long-controversial mistreatment of the tigers. In a victory for free speech, the Animal Legal Defense Fund obtained a dismissal of that suit, and an award of more than $600,000 in sanctions and attorneys’ fees against Landry’s.

“The Downtown Aquarium and Landry’s Inc. tried to intimidate and silence us with a baseless lawsuit, but we are committed to holding them accountable to the law,” says Wells.

The Animal Legal Defense Fund thanks the Houston law firm Irvine & Conner PLLC for providing pro bono representation in the case.

GMO Crops Have Become the Hot Potato of Maui Politics Under Pressure, A&B Attempts to Mislead Maui County Council and Public About Their Plans For Former Sugar Plantation Land


gmos-roundworms-found-to-be-resistant-to-bt-corn

In April at the Maui Energy Conference, Rick Volner, the general manager of diversified agriculture for Alexander & Baldwin, gave a presentation on how Maui’s thousands of acres of former sugar cane land could be utilized in the future.

“We have the significant opportunity to alter that landscape,” he said. “Our lands are uniquely positioned to succeed in diversified agriculture.”

Alluding to Gov. David Ige’s pledge to reach the state goal of food and fuel self-sufficiency, he added, “We think the central valley agricultural lands will play a significant role in that.”

Nowhere in that talk did Volner reveal that A&B’s “self-sufficiency” plans included covering Maui’s pesticide-laden central valley with hundreds of acres of Monsanto’s GMO Bt corn.

Community activists and earth protectors, alerted through social media (including this Maui Independent feature) that A&B was growing GMO corn, packed a September 5 Maui County Council hearing on A&B’s ag plans. Most public comment expressed strong opposition to growing GMO crops on the former sugar plantations.

Bt corn has generated controversy in the last few years, as it’s been implicated in the death of monarch butterflies,  has contaminated native corn species, is requiring more pesticides as insects develop resistance,  and may not be safe for human consumption.

During the meeting, where committee chair Yuki Lei Sugimura tried to suppress public comment on GMO crops, Volner stated his company is not working on or working with any tenants growing GMO food crops. He denied GMO crops were being grown for animal feed. They were only being grown for bio-energy he said.

When queried by Council member Elle Cochran about their GMO crop, Volner stated: “None of the GMO corn is for animal feed.”

This was very surprising news to earth activist Autumn Ness, who a week earlier, had been standing in a harvested field of GMO corn, and was told some of the crop was going to be shipped to Big Island Dairy, which had been growing their own GMO corn.

“We have confirmed that Big Island Dairy has received or will soon receive A&B’s corn,” says Ness, who is on the advisory board of the Hawai’i Center for Food Safety. “They (A&B) are actively looking for buyers.”

Attending an event hosted by Maui Chamber of Commerce and the Maui Farm Bureau, Ness was told by A&B rep Shiloh Stafford Jones that the company had harvested 140 acres of corn – 75% was Bt corn and 25% was conventional non-GMO corn.

“Dick Meyer and I went on their tour and we were standing in the middle of the field,” says Ness, “We watched the combine harvester cut the last few rows of corn and we were told that was their biggest harvest of 140 acres. The next step is to scale up to 500 acres.”

“When HC&S shut there was a collective hope they would continue on an agriculture path. The fear is they are more focused on real estate through land and water banking.”

Mark Sheehan, a leader in the SHAKA movement, concurs. “A&B’s farm plan looks like window dressings,” he says. “A&B is applying to be certified as a real estate investment trust. With 95% of its income coming from property, the company is not an agricultural enterprise. The bottom line is they are land banking and water banking, pretending to do ag while planning to get well compensated when the state agencies give them approvals for malls and subdivisions.”

“While they have declined to meet with the one successful biofuel company from Maui (Pacific Biofuels), they purport to have as many as 60 contenders to lease land, so that’s why they need tons of water.”

Sheehan feels that collective outrage over A&B hogging super-cheap public water while polluting land with GMO crops is having an impact. As The Maui Independent has reported, A&B pays a fraction of 1% of the market value price paid by small Maui farmers for public water, while using more than five times as much public water as everyone else on Maui put together.

“That impact will be more powerful when more people talk back to those Council members who can’t hear the public because they have earplugs supplied by their donors,” he says.

“Just as the Republican mayor and supposedly non-partisan Council votes as a block to promote all corporate/development interests, the ‘aina warriors need to build and maintain a force of protectors who will constantly show up, stand up, speak up to call our the sell out of what are public resources – air, water, soil. Because the pesticides used on crops, whether GMO or not, wind up in our soils, streams, ocean and air. We are having a huge impact and things will never roll back to the good old days of plantation haze.”

For the first time publicly we can report that Maui County Council member Alika Atay met with A&B’s Volner a few weeks before the contentious County meeting to present an extraordinary, innovative proposal that could potentially completely revolutionize agriculture on Maui.

Atay shared a vision based on the principles of permaculture and Native wisdom where 400-foot-wide food forests are divided with 400 foot wide open food crops, working down the mountain. This would include diversified trees, permanent trees, ulu, coconuts etc.

Atay suggested a technique of water utilization using the lay of the land. Referring to the hundreds of miles of roads that are adjacent to farmable lands he noted that 85% of rain catchment is possible with paving improvement of these roads.

“The blacktop can provide the rain to be aimed at the swale (low tract of land) and fill up the punawai (fresh water),” he said. “Rain catchment is anywhere from 20” to 90,” so water from East Maui is not needed as much. When it rains plenty you can pump it into the ditch.

“We can plant forests above and irrigate the fields below. You could literally make microbial spray solutions and spray from a truck along the roadside. Trucks can spray about 20 feet, imagine that for hundreds of miles.”

Atay told the A&B representatives that the greatest goal in life is to become a great ancestor. He told them that your predecessors of A&B have done a poor job. “You have the opportunity to become a great ancestor and to make great decisions for Maui County. You folks have opportunity.”

Just in that arena of food production alone, he said A&B has huge potential. “You will create jobs. You guys get the chance to do great things.”

“We cannot put all our eggs in one basket with tourism,” he emphasized. “As disasters occur the mentality is no-travel. What happens to our economy then? It’s dangerous to be solely dependent in one economy.”

“We need to be strong in diversified industries,” Atay concluded. “It’s a paradigm shift, it’s an entrepreneurial shift to empower. I call it an aloha paradigm shift with collaborative cooperatives.”

Maui’s grassroots organizer Mark Sheehan questions whether A&B will be willing to listen to Atay’s innovative ideas for Maui’s agricultural future.  “A&B has ignored input from local farmers and environmental groups for decades,” Sheehan says. “They have neither the knowledge to do better nor even an interest to do the right thing.

“With a climate catastrophe a week hitting somewhere, Maui needs to take control of its resources to assure food security for the future.  We can not waste a day as so much needs to be done to: decontaminate the land, assess best soils, regenerate the soils with proper mycorrhizae and minerals to allow farmers to grow nutrient dense food for local markets.  UH Maui College has been training a new generation of farmers, the Hawaii Farmers Union United has coordinated a network of farms, farmers and apprentices to extend that education. We should soon have a farm plan along with a tenet farmer lease-to-own arrangement to allow farm families to live where they are growing.”

“Nutrient recycling centers and food hubs need to be formed along with marketing channels. A Malama Wai plan should follow to outline the best use of the public trust waters. Such a plan will involve how to restore the EMI system, allowing greater allocation of water for East Maui stream dwellers and upcountry farmers.”

Autumn Ness too wonders why A&B is not focusing on growing food. “There’s a state wide goal to produce more food,” she says. “And there are plenty of crops like hemp or sunflowers, crops that are really hardy and don’t require a lot of labor. I can’t figure out why they would put their whole model in GMO corn. It doesn’t make any sense.”

Heavy Sea Ice Stops another Sailing Expedition to the North Pole in August (443) ~ Adapt 2030


Ed Note: While taking time off the last couple months, I’ve been observing climate change data that points toward Global cooling as the sun approaches the Grand Solar Minimum. From my observations, Global Warming has been a 30yr propaganda campaign to make human’s believe climate change is a result of human activity, for the benefit of global governance thru corporate tax incentives and profiting from human desires to lower our ‘carbon footprint’ – when nothing can be nothing further from the truth. It’s all about profits and controlling human populations.

Maybe new climate change data caused Trump to back out of the Paris Climate Treaty, if so then he should be commended for his decision to stop feeding the global warming beast.  Lets hope he’s working on a plan to face the agricultural challenges on our doorstep, if crop failures due to weather extremes continue to escalate America will need a mass mobilization similar to the efforts behind WW II, to engage new technology’s coming online for growing crops indoors at both the corporate and individual levels.

At best humans have a 10% affect on the climate, the rest are cyclical changes that take place due to the sun’s activity’s combined with the solar systems position in the galaxy and cosmic energy’s affecting the entirety of the heliosphere.

The Arctic Mission had set out with the objective to reach the the north pole by sailboat to prove there was global warming melting the Arctic sea ice. Problem is they are already bogged down in feet thick sea ice a couple of weeks out of Alaska. This is due to growing sea ice extent versus prior years and below normal temperatures registered the entire melt season of 2017.

The Paris Climate Treaty CANNOT Affect Impending Climate Change – It’s Another Corporate SCAM Playing on Our Emotions


Note: The Paris Climate Treaty is another corporate scam, after 30yrs of brainwashing people saying that the world is getting warmer due to humans, now almost everyone beLIEves this lie. The Earth is moving into a cyclical period of climate change being impacted by the sun and space weather, we are heading into global cooling caused by the Maunder Minimum and there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that governments and corporations can do to change this FACT.

So instead, they will scare you into taxation so the gov’t can continue to profit from a lie based on false science. I’ve been closely following earth changes for 12yrs and am surprised more people aren’t aware that this campaign for the Paris Climate treaty is another dog and pony show to benefit the ruling class. Unfortunately, there aren’t as many people covering climate change as are people covering useless news storys, fakenews and fear porn. Here’s the truth on CYCLICAL CLIMATE CHANGE

NYCLASS Demands Action for NYC Carriage Horses After Chaos Reins on Streets and in Stables


NYCLASS
NYCLASS held an emergency press conference outside the West Side Livery stable in Manhattan on June 2nd in response to the NY Post’s article detailing a city whistleblower’s disturbing photograph and account of hellish living conditions inside it, including horses living in tiny, cramped stalls surrounded by their own manure on concrete with inadequate bedding.

POST ARTICLE: http://nypost.com/2017/06/01/stable-says-this-carriage-horses-stall-is-not-animal-abuse/

Coverage of NYCLASS press conference (more will be posted on our Twitter and Facebook accounts as they are released): http://pix11.com/2017/06/02/protesters-decry-horse-drawn-carriages-outside-nyc-stables/

image1-1.JPG

We are calling on the Department of Health and the Mayor to launch immediate investigations into the abusive conditions that stable owners admit are just business as usual.

Dr. Holly Cheever, DVM, an equine veterinarian and carriage horse expert wrote a letter to the Dept of Health condemning the stable conditions pictured and pointed out that the horses get no pasture or areas to graze, stretch, roll, run, or socialize with other horses—they are trapped in their tiny, rancid stalls after pounding the pavement pulling carriages for 9+ hours. This is cruelty.

This comes on the heels of two other alarming incidents in May involving horses on city streets. On May 30th a horse named Goldie bolted from her stable and ran wild through midtown streets during rush hour, terrifying drivers and pedestrians. Videos of the frightening moments were shared with media. We are happy to report that Goldie was uninjured, though she was put right back into traffic the following day. Watch the CBS report including video of the runaway horse and NYCLASS’s response: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/05/30/carriage-horse-runs-through-hells-kitchen/

horse16n-1-web.jpg

And on Mary 15th, two horses being ridden through morning midtown traffic spooked and a horse named Billy collapsed and crashed into a taxi, garnering widespread outrage and media coverage. NYCLASS was on the scene and was interviewed by CBS News: http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2017/05/15/horse-incident-midtown/

The month of May has highlighted the misery and danger that carriage horses face both on the streets and in their stables.  Horses have a highly developed flight drive and frighten easily, so forcing them into chaotic midtown Manhattan daily is a recipe for disaster.

NYCLASS is working hard to gain real protections for carriage horses and we are meeting with city officials in the coming weeks so stay tuned for updates and news.

Thank you for your continued support of NYCLASS. Horses deserve better and we are committed to ensuring that New York becomes a more humane and safe city for both two-legged and 4-legged residents.

 

Sincerely,

Edita Binkrant, Executive Director

Throng of students walk out on Mike Pence’s commencement speech at Notre Dame


Vice President Mike Pence’s scheduled commencement address at the University of Notre Dame was met with a sizable protest by graduates, many of whom walked out en masse as Pence was being introduced.

Vice President Mike Pence delivered a pair of commencement addresses this weekend, both of which drew powerful protests.

Pence’s speech to small Christian school Grove City College was met with demonstrations outside the event. And his address to the University of Notre Dame drew protests from without and within.

Pence’s appearance at the commencement drew throngs of protesters outside the campus, and spurred a sizable walkout by graduates. A seemingly endless parade of Notre Dame students began to file out of the stadium as soon as Pence was introduced.

The planned walkout was a highly visible protest, not just of Pence, but of the administration which he represents. The organizers of the protest cited Pence’s own political positions, as well as Trump administration policies, as reasons for the walkout:

“The participation and degree-conferring of VP Pence stand as an endorsement of policies and actions which directly contradict Catholic social teachings and values and target vulnerable members of the University’s community,” Notre Dame student Xitlaly Estrada of WeStandforND said in a release.

The group cited the vice president’s opposition to gay rights, his attempts as governor to stop Syrian refugees from entering the state, his backing of President Trump’s travel ban on immigrants from seven majority-Muslim countries, and his opposition to sanctuary cities that refuse to enforce federal immigration laws.

Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos also encountered highly visible resistance at her commencement address to Historically Black Bethune-Cookman University.

The Trump administration and these colleges may not be setting much of an example for their students, but the students are picking up the slack by demonstrating what it means to stand up for what is right. SEE VIDEO

This Man Posed Proudly With the Bear he Shot While it Was Hibernating


Note: Bloodthirsty cowards like this man could hardly wait for the ink to dry on the bill to get blood on their hands with their first kill! This is enough to make my head explode! From my perspective, it would be appropriate to find and publicly shame the man who did this, and, determine which FIFTY TWO Senators supported this bill and SHAME those barbaric assholes out of office. With ENOUGH public outrage this bill can be overturned. Will you take action for the wolves and bears who don’t have a voice? Please research & contact the guilty Senators and share this message. Mahalo {~A~}

By Hefty

The U.S. Senate has voted 52 to 47 to overturn a law that forbids the hunting of wild animals that are in hibernation.

The regulations enforced by the Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) were put in place to prevent excessive hunting, protect animals during the hibernation phase, and stop the killing of mothers and their offspring.

The new law allows hunters to use unfair practices, e.g. baiting hungry bears with food to shoot them at close range, and entering wolf and bear dens to slaughter entire families.

15781000_1462540387119600_4216482845791037881_n

It also removes the prohibition on hunting from the air (shooting animals from an airplane or helicopter).

All of these hunting methods were formerly banned.

“What the Senate did today should outrage the conscience of every animal lover in America,” stated Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS).

Cabal on suicide watch – Op-Ed by LightBringerFlex


Note: While we’re making much progress on many fronts, we’re still dealing with massive solar radiation management (chemtrailing), wars, mind control manipulation, bigpharma’s crimes against humanity, the assault against indigenous peoples and the raping and pillaging of sacred lands by corporate gov’ts around the world, financial debt slavery in a collapsing global economy and  the Earth’s bio-sphere’s in a death spiral.

Yes, we’re making tons of progress, but there is still much work to be done. Keep standing  in your sovereign power for Truth and in finding remedy and resolution to the challenges all of humanity faces in these turbulent waters. Victory to the Light! Blessings, {~A~}

This is it. We made it to the beginning of the end of the cabal. Too many people know about them. They are Satan worshiping, child eating, child killing, child abusing, child sacrificing, child snatching, war mongering, Mafia mentalitied, ruthlessly selfish, misery spreading, human slave masters that see us as lamb for the slaughter.

Mossad did 9-11. Mossad has videos of all the real pedos and so they control the many pedos in DC (what is it? 80% pedo now?). They also set up politicians with 16 year old Mossad spies posing as 18 – 21 year old drunk girls at the bar who end up flirting and tricking legitimate politicians into having sex with them while Mossad records the whole thing. Basically, they are also manufacturing pedophiles to control the US.

The federal reserve kept quite about the way it’s built to bankrupt America and we found out.

The shill team is failing although they have had some success. They are simply too expensive and like the Afghanistan war, they will never win. They spend millions on shill propaganda instead of using that money to uplift the economy or help the homeless. They are running the drug trade while fighting it through law enforcement to maximize profit for the corporations they serve. They tried to pass a clearly destructive and enslaving TPP which was laughed at by everyone who read it but it was also insightful into the cabals long term plans of mass enslavement.

The masks have fallen and Hillary herself mentioned how important it is to have trust with the public and that she doesn’t know how to restore it back to what it was right on her own promotional commercial.

There are rumors of one of the top puppet masters making a run for it. McCain looks nervous, shitty, and sweating bullets like a pig because he knows his days are numbered and that he is a treasonous bastard who is about to be found out. Bill Clinton is now a widely known rapist and pedo. Soros blew up in the public as a dark, sinister overlord who feasts on the souls of Americans for power and domination. Whistleblowers are popping up all over the place. People on the street seem to know about all that we talk about on this sub. Heroes are rising up from every corner who pursue the public interest with Pizzagate like George Webb.

Yup, this is what I was waiting for. Welcome to the beginning of the end of the cabal. The stage is set. The people are roaring so loud that the cabal can hear it all the way in their underground conclaves. Every single day something pops up that needs covering up. It is impossible to cover all this shit up. It’s just a painful waste of time at this point.

South Koreans are peacefully rampaging against the cabal, the U.K. citizens are too, and we are catching up quick here in the US. Mossad is probably on a massive damage control campaign and any minute now someone is going to rat out the cabal in hopes for forgiveness.

Lastly, 1500+ low level pedo traffickers have been arrested and the mid range level ones are just being picked up now. Let’s see how far up we can go with that.

All that we really need to worry about now is the massive propaganda machine called MSM which is falling apart as we speak. CNN reputation is in shambles. MSNBC is suiciding themselves like dumb bafoons. Fox team members are all heading in different directions like confused weasels. The propaganda works but it’s losing it’s effectiveness.

There’s a lot of clean up work left to do but I think these are all good signs for what’s to come. This might end up being a peaceful revolution after all and social media is dead center of it all.

Power of the People – From Encaged to Outraged


Gary ‘Z’ McGee, Staff Writer
Waking Times

“Those who will not reason, are bigots, those who cannot are fools, and those who dare not, are slaves.” ~Lord Byron

The system is not improving, it is not progressing. It is precarious and faltering, beleaguered beyond the capacity to fix itself. And with the orange-faced personification of bigotry, intolerance, pomposity, greed, hate and overreaching plutocracy at the top of the unsustainable pyramid, it has been found waiting, covertly fixed and stagnating.

But people are slowly starting to wake up to this fact, realizing that they can no longer wait for the system to fix itself. They must take matters into their own hands, seek solidarity with those who also seek healthy, sustainable, and progressive change, and discover that the door to their cage has always been open. A deepening of the truth is on the other side.

From encaged to outraged, we the people are beginning to break the invisible chains of cultural conditioning and state-driven political propaganda. We are filling the streets, voting with our feet, and pounding the concrete with our wide awake voices screaming “Freedom; Anarchy; Love!” in the face of tyranny, statism, and slavery. We realize that the vertical democracy of statism has utterly failed, and only the horizontal democracy of self-rule can solve the equation of the political human condition. Indeed. As Leonardo DaVinci once said, “Knowledge is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.”

Uncaged Citizen

“The way to learn courage is to be afraid of something and then do it anyway.” ~Brandon Stanton

The uncaged citizen is a self-ruling, self-reasoning, courageous individual willing to be unpopularly right despite the popular wrong of the majority. Like Django unchained he is that “one in ten-thousand nigga!” willing to do what it takes in order to bring water to the wasteland, to bring freedom to all tyrannical landscapes, knowing, as Martin Luther King Jr. did, that “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Have no illusions, the current system of vertical democracy reeks of injustice. The top-down chain of obedience is profoundly corrupt. It will take bottom-up, courageous, horizontal solidarity to balance things out. Indeed, the uncaged citizen is the bane of the fenced-in corruption of an unjust system.

Uncaged citizens are filling up the streets, pounding their feet against the atrocities of the state. They are mobilizing against intolerance and hate, misogyny and rape, plutocracy and greed. They are transforming their love for humanity into concrete deeds and courageous acts that set a healthy example against the unhealthy machine of the corrupt state. They are tiny Davids with slingshots of justice aimed at an unjust Goliath. They are peaceful warriors attempting to chop the head off an environmentally unsustainable Black Snake. Hell, even the meek are beginning to rise up, digging down deep for that unquenchable courage. As Plato said in The Republic, “There is in every one of us, even those who seem most moderate, a type of desire that is terrible, wild, and lawless.” And in a world that is fast beginning to outlaw freedom and self-rule, such desire is needed more than ever before.

Outraged Solidarity

“The object of life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane.” ~Marcus Aurelius

As it stands, the ranks of the insane is the unhealthy chain of obedience run amok within a corrupt vertical democracy that simply does not work well for healthy human beings. The solution is to escape the ignorance of the majority and join the ranks of the informed minority who are joined in solidarity under a flag of horizontal democracy and freedom, void of rulers and masters.

Outrage is merely a side effect of learning the painful truth. It’s the emotion that grips us when we finally stop asking to be kissed with lies and begin asking to be slapped with truth. It’s when we finally pull our heads out of the comfortable sand and begin looking around at the uncomfortable truth. Sure, it pisses us off, but lo and behold, there are others there who are pissed of as well, who are also waking up to the corruption and greed of the plutocratic state. They are willing, as we are, to rise up with love and courage in their heart, despite the hate and indifference of the state and those who kowtow to it. They too want to leave a healthier, more sustainable and just world to their children and grandchildren. We are joined in solidarity toward such a noble cause and outraged against any system and any person who works against it.

Horizontal Democracy

“There is nothing noble in being superior to your fellow man; true nobility is being superior to your former self.” ~Ernest Hemmingway

Similarly, as a citizenry, true nobility is being superior to our former political position. Horizontal Democracy, void of rulers and masters, is far superior to vertical democracy, dependent upon a chain of obedience. There is more progressive evolution in a spoonful of horizontal democracy than in an entire ocean of stagnant vertical democracy. Vertical democracy does not work well for healthy human beings precisely because of the fact that power tends to corrupt. Horizontal democracy is robust with checks and balances, so that power rarely has a chance to ever become corrupt. With neither masters, nor rulers attempting to monopolize power, human kind is more likely to evolve into a more progressive and sustainable species.

At the end of the day, the power of the people cannot be found within a vertical form of democracy dependent upon a chain of obedience. This is because power tends to become corrupt at the top of the chain of obedience, thus causing injustice within the entire system, while oppressing the bottom of the hierarchy. The power of the people can only be found within a horizontal form of democracy void of masters and rulers, where the chain of obedience lies broken and discarded and the links in the chain are free to form in solidarity of brotherhood for freedom and justice despite the tyranny and injustice of the state. As Maria Robinson said, “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.”

Lakota Chief to Honour Hawaiian Sacred Sites


By Jacob Devaney on Monday January 23rd, 2017

World Peace and Prayer Day on Hawaii Island

They say that the world is made of stories yet most of the ones we hear these days are sad or scary. In the darkest of hours we can see the horizon begin to glow with new light. Now is that time on planet Earth.

A vision to honor and protect the sacred is a calling to awaken our own divine nature and reconnect with all that is living. Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe, has called forth a vision of all nations, all faiths sharing one prayer for healing. This kind of story grows from the roots of ancestral prophecies and will blossom into a beautiful future if we come together in spiritual unity. This year, World Peace and Prayer Day is going to be held on Hawaii Island.

A vision for healingChief Arvol Looking Horse has a vision of all nations sharing a prayer for healing.

Mending of the Hoop of all Nations

The prophecy of The Mending of the Hoop of all Nations reads:

Following the birth of a White Buffalo Calf in 1994, the Keeper of the White Buffalo Calf Pipe for the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Nations— Arvol Looking Horse, was directed to honor the Four Directions with ceremony on Summer Solstice/June 21st. According to Lakota Star Knowledge, the birth of “Miracle”, a female white buffalo, signaled a time of Earth changes and the coming of The Mending of the Hoop of all Nations. The Summer Solstice is said to be a powerful time to pray for peace and harmony among all Living Beings. Grandmother Earth’s gifts; the air, water, plant, animal, and rock nations must be allowed to heal if we are to live in harmony with Her. – World Peace and Prayer Day Prophecy

A time to pray for peaceThe Summer Solstice is a powerful time to pray for peace among all beings.

A Call to Protect the Land

2017 will mark the 22nd year of World Peace and Prayer Day. It has been hosted at sacred sites in communities all over the world including Mt Fuji, Ireland, South Africa, the Black Hills, Mexico City, New Zealand, Brazil, Grey Horn Butte (Devils Tower), and many other sites.

The call to protect our connection to the land and sacred sites is echoing in a growing chorus across the planet as we face many environmental crises and climate change.

In 2016 we saw an unprecedented coming together of tribes and people from cultures around the world to protect water at Standing Rock. The call to protect our connection to the land and sacred sites is echoing in a growing chorus across the planet as we face many environmental crises and climate change.

Come together to protect the landThere is a call for all nations to come together to protect the land and sacred sites.

Mountain of Sky Father

The Peace and Prayer Day celebrations will be held on Hawaii Island, home to Mauna Kea. The mountain, also known as Mauna a Wakea (Mountain of Sky Father), is a place where the heavens and earth converge. Native Hawaiian Cultural Practitioner and Kumu Hula, Pua Case, explains its significance:

It’s regarded as a kupuna, a revered and respected elder, an ancestor. Mauna a Wakea is a sacred piko, the navel of Hawai’i, situated in the middle of the Pacific. As the tallest mountain in the world from the sea floor, its physical prominence stationed nearest to the heavens holds a spiritual significance for Kanaka Maoli (Native Hawaiians), a significance that can be expressed in likening this mountain to a sacred altar.

Mountain where heaven and earth convergeMauna Kea is seen as a sacred alter where the heavens and the earth converge.

The Power of Mana

This sacred mountain holds mana (spiritual and divine powers) and is a focal point of spiritual and cultural significance to connect with the ancestors, energy and life forces, as well as the ancestral realms. Pua Cas continues:

Mauna a Wakea is a place to connect in union with the divine Aloha of the Creator. It is time for all to connect with Aloha to Hawai‘i Island with its verdant rainforests, active lava flows, majestic mountains, and cultural traditions. This is an integral time for us to raise our level of consciousness and understanding that the care and protection of our lands and waters, from the mountain to the sea, is part of our kuleana (responsibility). The cultural perspective of aloha ‘aina, to have sincere love and respect for the land and nature, is at the heart of Hawaiian traditions.

Aloha is respect for natureAloha is love for the land and lies at the heart of Hawaiian traditions.

The Spirit of Aloha

Hawaiians have a special relationship with the land (called Aina in Hawaiian), and have developed sustainable ways to live with finite resources on their remote islands in the Pacific. As some of the newest land on the planet, and one of the last places humans found to inhabit on our migrations, Hawaiian culture plays a very special role on our planet. The indigenous wisdom of her people is valuable to all of humanity at this time and will be honoured at the Peace and Prayer Day.

At the heart of Hawaiian traditions lies the concept of the spirit of Aloha. We are inspired by the global voyage of Hōkūle’a, a traditional Polynesian sailing vessel that set off from Hawaii Island in 2014. The Polynesian Voyaging Society is bringing the spirit of Aloha to the world while navigating the seas using only indigenous navigation techniques including the stars, wave patterns, and birds. The circumnavigation of Hōkūle’a is a prayer for Malama Honua, which means Protecting our Island Earth.

Hokulea arrives in New YorkThe historical arrival of Hōkūle’a in the harbour at New York City.

Hokulea Arrives in New York

In June of 2016, Hōkūle’a made a historic arrival in its journey to New York. New York, ancestral home to the Iroquois, also known as the Haudenosaunee. These people are responsible for influencing the Founding Fathers by teaching them the principles of the Great Law of Peace which were later incorporated into what is now the three branches of government in the United States of America.

The ancestral land that is now called New York has a deep history of indigenous people learning to cooperate and live together in peace. A very important lesson for today that has been forgotten.

Hokulea welcome ceremony in New YorkThe Welcoming Ceremony of Hōkūle’a in New York celebrates the spirit of Aloha.

Hope for All of Humanity

To welcome Hōkūle’a on her historic visit to New York, Chief Arvol Looking Horse joined Pua Case, a cultural ambassador from Hawaii. The week was filled with beautiful celebration, song, dance, and prayer as diverse tribes gathered to witness and participate in the birthing of something hopeful for all of humanity.

During the time shared, Chief Looking Horse spoke with Pua Case asking for permission to host World Peace and Prayer Day on Hawaii Island in June of 2017. Normally traditional ceremony does not allow for cameras or video, but this important moment needed to be captured and shared with the world.

Prayer for Peace in Hawaii

After sailing for three years and visiting over 150 ports in 27 nations to create a “lei of hope” around the globe, Hōkūle’a will be returning home. We are overjoyed to announce that Peace and Prayer Day on Hawaii Island is being held in June, the same month that Hōkūle’a returns from her journey around the world.

World Peace and Prayer Day is a ceremony, not a concert or festival. It is being honored in Hawaii, as well as simultaneous sites around the world, on June 21. There are specific protocols to be honored at this gathering and anyone wishing to attend should come with a humble heart to pray and learn.

World Peace and Prayer Day is partnering with The Karl LaDue WoDakota Foundation, a non profit organization committed to the education of native youth. They are committed to sharing knowledge and skills that enable youth to embrace their traditional heritage while simultaneously applying  leading edge technologies to create more sustainable and harmonious communities.
