“‘We have reached a crossroads. On an international level we have adopted materialism over conservation of the Earth’s limited resources forgetting that ‘the Earth is not a resource to be used but, rather, the source of life itself’ – Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th Generation Keeper of Sacred White Buffalo Bundle

A Great Urgency: To All World Religious and Spiritual Leaders
Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.
We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things.
The dangers we are faced with at this time are not of spirit, mistakes that we cannot afford to continue to make.
I asked, as Spiritual Leaders, that we join together, united in prayer with the whole of our Global Communities. My concern is these serious issues will continue to worsen, as a domino effect that our Ancestors have warned us of in their Prophecies.
I know in my heart there are millions of people that feel our united prayers for the sake of our Grandmother Earth are long overdue. I believe we as Spiritual people must gather ourselves and focus our thoughts and prayers to allow the healing of the many wounds that have been inflicted on the Earth.
As we honor the Cycle of Life, let us call for Prayer circles globally to assist in healing Grandmother Earth (our Unc¹I Maka), and that we may also seek to live in harmony, as we make the choice to change the destructive path we are on.
As we pray, we will fully understand that we are all connected. And that what we create can have lasting effects on all life.
So let us unite spiritually, All Nations, All Faiths, One Prayer. Along with this immediate effort, I also ask to please remember World Peace and Prayer Day/ Honoring Sacred Sites day. Whether it is a natural site, a temple, a church, a synagogue or just your own sacred space, let us make a prayer for all life, for good decision making by our Nations, for our children¹s future and well-being, and the generations to come.

Chief Arvol Looking Horse sees a great danger threatening “Grandmother Earth” and a great hope for restoring her wholeness. So he is calling all nations to prayer of any kind in an effort to return the planet to balance, the people to spirit. I asked him why this path is the right path to take. “A man or a woman without spirit is very dangerous,” Looking Horse explained in a recent phone interview. According to this Sioux chief, the absence of spirit is causing suffering everywhere. “We are in a time of survival,” he said. “But we don’t want to believe it because we have forgotten our spirits. We have forgotten that Grandmother Earth has a spirit.” Disconnected souls are hurting others without even knowing they are hurting others.” Those being hurt include animals, trees and waterways. The Sioux have an inclusive worldview, but it was not shared by the transplanted Europeans who undertook genocide on Indian land, culminating in the Wounded Knee massacre of 1890. That final brutality broke the “hoop” binding Indians together; however, Sioux prophecy foretold that in a hundred years the people would be reunited. Although surviving tribe members and their descendants were stripped of religious freedoms (returned to them only 32 year ago by the U.S. government), the rituals were kept and the prophecy not forgotten. So the Sioux nations set out on horseback to “mend the broken hoop” of their nation in 1986 at a sacred site known to non-Indians as Devils Tower or the Great Horn Butte; their ritual went on for four years and concluded in 1990, 100 years after Wounded Knee. During the course of that long ritual, Looking Horse was surprised by a vision that came to him of peace and unity that included not only the Indian nations but all the nations of the world, each gathering with ritual plants around sacred fires on every continent. The Sioux chief felt called to oversee a much broader mending. But who was going to listen even to the chief of a people largely ignored in the country where they lived? “It’s everyday life for us that we hold Grandmother Earth sacred, we hold the trees and the plants, everything has a spirit. We need people to be really respectful for each other. The Great Spirit put us here all together. If we’re going to survive, we need to have spirit and compassion. We’re asking people to go to their sacred places or sacred spaces to pray.” “Sioux Indian chief calls all nations to action on June 21″ by Juliane Poirier

Dane Wigington of GeoengineeringWatch.org contends, “Anything we do to alter the natural systems is a form of engineering the planet. Engineering is perhaps too dignified, but it alters the biosphere. Putting a hundred million tons of carbon in the air is a big problem. Cutting down forests is a big problem. Painting the planet is another big problem, but when you look at climate engineering and how it has kept the planet from responding to the damage done, that is a bigger problem than all of them combined. The sea levels are rising 10 times faster than what we are being told. Miami is pumping out sea water every high tide. The streets are flooding underneath every high tide. . . . Even a foot or two of sea level rise is cataclysmic for any costal habitation. The total sea level rise is beyond what most people think that is possible. In official studies, if Greenland melts in its entirety, that is 21 to 24 feet of sea level rise. If Antarctica melts, that is a 197 to 200 feet of sea level rise. It’s not going to happen overnight, but it is happening at exponential speed, and it only take one or two feet to cause cataclysmic damage all over the globe. It is happening right now.”

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — California oil and gas regulators have refused for nearly a year to release findings of what they termed a “highest-priority” investigation of possible oil field contamination into the water aquifers that serve millions of people in and around Los Angeles.
Concerns about the safety of oil field injection wells in the region are among many dogging state oil and gas regulators.
California is under orders from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to do more to protect drinking-water aquifers from contamination by the oil and gas industry. California is the country’s No. 3 oil-producing state.
Oil and Gas companies are rethinking traditional approaches to Information Governance.
Home to more than 18 million people, the Los Angeles basin is also the scene of a more than century-old oil industry that peaked in the 1930s but continues today.
A separate, state-commissioned report by the California Council on Science and Technology and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory this month on the safety of the process known as fracking noted that a half-million Los Angeles-area residents live, work or go to school within a mile of an oil well that is being created by the intensive method of hydraulic fracturing.

has an extensive background in solar energy. He is a former employee of Bechtel Power Corp. and was a licensed contractor in California and Arizona. His personal residence was feature in a cover article on the world’s largest renewable energy magazine, Home Power. He owns a 1,600-acre “wildlife preserve” next to Lake Shasta in northern California. He focused his efforts and energy on the geo-engineering issue when he began to lose very significant amounts of solar uptake due to what ever-increasing “solar obscuration” caused from the aircraft spraying as he also noted significant decline in forest health and began testing and research into the geo-engineering issue about a decade ago. He is the lead researcher for http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org and has investigated all levels of geo-engineering from chemtrails to HAARP. He assisted Michael Murphy with his production of “What in the World are They Spraying” and has appeared on an extensive number of interviews to explain the environmental dangers we face on a global level.
Join forces with IRN and dig deeper.
Note: Incredible speech! IMO after we reclaim control of the planet from tyrants and psychopathic bloodlines, Dane Wigington deserves to be honored as a global hero for his efforts to help people from all walks of life understand what’s happening in our skies and on the ground.
This is the 2nd installment of a new Northern California commercial free news hour being aired Saturday mornings from 6 am to 7 am on KQMS 1400 AM and 99.3 FM (the first show aired is here http://www.geoengineeringwatch.org/ge… ). The information that will be presented on “Global Alert News” is a radical departure from what the North State’s primary radio broadcaster has historically presented from sources like Rush Limbaugh and Fox News. Though some of the KQMS listeners may be initially shocked by the information they will be exposed to on this straightforward presentation of information, reality will prevail as events that are unfolding around us all become impossible to hide. This episode initially covers the fact that all of us are test subjects in the lethal and ongoing climate engineering operations. The discussion then moves on to focus on the fact that US civilians and US military personnel have routinely been exposed to lethal dangers and testing without their knowledge or consent. This is business as usual for our government of criminals and tyrants.

Without bees, the future of Earth looks bleak…
Therefore, with massive bee die-offs (otherwise known as ‘colony collapse disorder’), it has been the plight of many scientists, beekeepers, and educated activists to do whatever it takes to ensure bees survive.
Some theories exist as to what is causing colony collapse, such as Monsanto’s GMO crops, the insecticides used to treat them, and EMF frequencies from excessive technological use… but debate persists.
In wake of all the controversy, the German Beekeepers Association (DIB), which represents almost 100,000 beekeepers, decided to take action by calling for a nationwide ban on GMO cultivation. The news comes from a report published by the German NGO keine-gentechnik.de.
As GMWatch shares, this call for a ban follows controversial legislation allowing EU member states to opt-out of GM cultivation, even though it has been approved at the European Union level.
As might be expected, many pro-GMO advocates are angry about the new law, calling it “unfounded,” and stating that it “lacks scientific justification.” Many non-GMO supporters – especially beekeepers – stand strong in their stance, however, and point to the many documented dangers (and unproven suspicions) of genetically modified foods. They also bring to attention the known damage caused by herbicides and pesticides used to grow them, as well as the decimation of pollinating insects.
Beekeepers are hoping that the Agriculture Minister Christian Schmidt (CSU) will soon administer a nationwide ban. At this point, they – and the rest of the world – need action to be taken to preserve the declining numbers of pollinating bees. So far, the Minister has argued in favor of allowing each state individually decide if they will ban GMOs.
Because bees can fly up to eight kilometers to pollinate and search for food, this is far from the compromise bee advocates are seeking. Even if one state banned GM crops, cross-contamination from crops of a nearby state could occur, further harming bee populations.
Beekeepers state that this would be “environmentally and agriculturally unacceptable.”
In addition, the exposure of bees to biotech chemicals like glyphosate (which was determined to be ‘probably carcinogenic’ by the WHO’s IARC), would no doubt compromise their numbers even more.
We agree with the DIB’s statement: “Bees know no borders.”
For this reason, it is essential individuals recognize the importance of bees and band together to demand a ban on GMOs in their own country. No doubt a ban so large will be tough to uphold, but at this point measures must be taken.

While mainstream media entertains and distracts many Americans with the Donald Trump circus of idiocy, our planet is literally burning to the ground. Though there are a great many anthropogenic factors related to the record number of fires that are incinerating what is left of the Earth’s boreal forests, the most significant factor of all still goes completely unacknowledged by the climate science community and mainstream media, global climate engineering programs. Geoengineering is inflicting record drought around the globe (along with deluge in other locations), destroying the ozone layer, and contaminating soils and waters. Climate engineering is the greatest assault against the natural world ever unleashed by the human race. All are needed to join the fight to raise awareness of this most critical issue. When we reach critical mass, we will have a chance of stopping the insanity in our skies. The article below is the latest update from the front lines of our burning forests.

At the beginning of this month, 314 wildfires were raging in Alaska alone. They have seared 5 million acres so far this year and have torched up to half a million acres in a single day. Meanwhile, to the east in Canada’s Northwest Territory, hundreds of fires were raging in the permafrost zone, having covered over two million acres by the end of June. The forested northern provinces of British Columbia, Alberta and Saskatchewan were similarly afflicted — 522 fires in northern Saskatchewan alone by June 30, nearly four times as many as last year in the same period.
Southward from Alaska, at the beginning of this month, wildfires dotted the landscapes of all the western states as far south as southern California and as far east as Colorado. One California fire overran a traffic jam on a freeway, leaving behind a dystopian landscape of burned-out cars (but, remarkably, no serious casualties).
Wildfires were raging across southern Siberia and Inner Mongolia by mid-April. At the moment, more than 50 wildfires are burning in troubled Greece, their smoke casting a dark pall over Athens.
A new study published last week confirms that wildfires worldwide are larger, more numerous, and their season is longer every year; and that it is all a direct consequence of climate change. Hotter and drier conditions, beginning earlier each spring, have over 30 years doubled the area of the planet’s surface that is vulnerable to wildfire; and have lengthened by 18% the average length of fire seasons worldwide.
In addition, climate change has extended northward the range of the mountain pine beetle, which has killed swaths of western pine trees so vast that there is fear of a single wildfire sweeping through dead trees from New Mexico to Alberta.
The effects of these fires go far beyond the immediate danger to homes and persons. Wildfires do not “destroy” the land across which they travel, as is often heard in the lamestream media, fire is an integral and necessary part of natural ecosystems. However, massive fires temporarily denude the land they scorch of the leaves that deflect and slow rainfall, and the root systems that hold topsoil in place. Thus muddy floods and landslides follow the fire until undergrowth is replaced.
The smoke from these titanic fires is becoming a major threat. It contains tiny particles that bypass the body’s defenses against pollution and enter the lungs and bloodstream, aggravating lung and heart diseases. Fire 50-100 miles upwind from a city have been shown to degrade air quality by a factor of 5 – 15 times. Carried into more southerly latitudes by the undulating planetary wave between the polar and temperate air masses, the smoke has been darkening the summer skies and tinting sunsets as far south as Tennessee and West Virginia.
But the most ominous thing about these fires is that they are not merely an effect of climate change, they are a cause. The burning of the forests and tundra is releasing astounding quantities of carbon, stored for centuries in the wood and the permanently frozen subsoil. Melting permafrost releases methane, a greenhouse gas many times more destructive of the world’s climate than carbon dioxide. The fires are in fact a feedback mechanism, accelerating climate change as climate change accelerates them.
In one of Ray Bradbury’s searing, never-to-be-unread short stories, an astronaut in a space suit is floating languidly in space, musing on his existence and the wonderful perspective he has on the blue planet Earth below him. Shortly we learn that these are the musings of a doomed man, as he is in fact hurtling toward that earth and will die a fiery death when he hits the atmosphere. Just before that happens, we leave him, and join a mother and small child taking an evening walk as the child looks up in wonder and says, “Look, Mom! A shooting star!”
Somewhere in the northern hemisphere tonight, a small child will look up in wonder and say, “Look, Mom! What a pretty sunset!”

Low altitude chemplanes are actively hiding what they are doing. Having filmed chemplanes and chemtrails since 2011 I am very familiar with the tactics and effects of spraying aerosol from planes. For months now I have been unable to film the moon do to chemtrails, yet filming the low altitude planes has become near impossible – why? Drones? Something else? Film low altitude chemplanes and post what you get. This is all happening in plain sight.

Here’s a story that intrigues me immensely, and it’s in that “sudden animal death” category that every now and then we hear stories of, until the news drops them. We’ve all heard of these stories too: seals or whales or some form of aquatic life washes up (or in some of the more fanciful versions of these stories, beaches itself) on the beaches in vast numbers, and suddenly. One of my favorite versions of this type of story occurred a few years ago in Tennessee as birds appeared simply to drop out of the sky, more or less all at once. Usually, we’re given explanations that run to the “ordinary and mundane” such as that these flocks of birds or schools of fish or gaggles of geese suddenly, and more or less simultaneously, all succumbed to the same disease at more or less the same time. We’ll get back to that in a moment.
Well… it appears to have happened again, in Idaho this time, according to this article that was shared by many readers here:
Now you’ll note that in this version of the story, in the comments section, there’s a brief exchange between two commenters, one of whom notes strange intereference with his bluetooth signal as he was driving through Idaho, and another commenter who downplays the possibility of microwave interference.
What bothered me about this article was that it mentioned specifically Kuna county, and was datelined July 9, but it sounded like, and appeared to be to perhaps be based upon, these articles from earlier this year, in March:
There are some notable differences between the first story on the one hand, and the second and third stories on the other, in that the first story seems to suggest that various types of birds, including songbirds, were involved, while the second two are focused on snowgeese. But look at the explanation being offered in the USA Today version of the story:
MUD LAKE, Idaho (AP) — Some 2,000 migrating snow geese have died recently in eastern Idaho, likely from a disease that comes on quickly and can kill birds in midflight, wildlife officials say.
The Idaho Department of Fish and Game says staff and volunteers collected the dead birds over the past several days at wildlife management areas near the towns of Terreton and Roberts.
The cause of death likely was avian cholera, which can cause convulsions and erratic flight, the agency said.
And here’s the Washington Post’s version of the “sudden avian cholera” theory, which notes it can cause strange behavior:
“Early symptoms can include lethargy, convulsions, a discharge from the mouth, matted feathers and erratic movements on the ground and in the air — including flying upside down, according to USGS. But many outbreaks of the disease are spotted only after the birds have died from it.”
I recall a similar incident, years ago in Tennessee, involving dead birds – of all types – just dropping out of the sky, stone cold dead, as if they had all suddenly died in flight. In that instance, as I recall, there were even some astonished witnesses that gave a few sound bites for the news. The story ran for a brief period, then,like such stories do, just disappeared. In that instance, I do not recall discussions of the mechanism of death, or of avian cholera, though such discussions may have occurred.
So I’ll come right out with what bothers me here, and it might bother some of you, I don’t know. Avian cholera apparently causes erratic behavior in birds, including flying upside down. And apparently it can bring on sudden death. But what bothers me is that this might not be adequate to explain why flights of geese appear to be dropping from the sky in one apparently specific region of Idaho, and do so apparently more or less simultaneously(we’ll get to that in a moment). Even if one assumes these geese all feed from the same pond or area, surely they would fall from the sky at slightly different periods. Note this statement in the Washington Post article, which to my mind, raises, rather than resolves, this point rather directly:
That’s because once birds become sick from the disease, they usually don’t have very long to live. Some contracting the acute form of the disease die within 6 to 12 hours of exposure, but more often, it takes 24 to 48 hours. Birds drop from the sky in otherwise “good body condition,” USGS says, “Death may be so rapid that birds literally fall out of the sky or die while eating with no previous signs of disease.” (Italicized emphasis added)
So one has an incubation-to-death time period of 6 to 48 hours, and this would mean, if one thinks about it, two things:
What we’re left with, I suspect, is a mystery, and perhaps one which is being obfuscated by the “avian cholera” story, because the real mechanisms are known and disturbing. Avian cholera might explain birds, but sudden deaths of aquatic life won’t apply to that mechanism. Are we looking at unified phenomena? I don’t know. Are we looking at avian cholera in some of these cases? Well, probably, but it’s that prospect of “simultaneity” that makes that mechanism of explanation a bit wobbly in my opinion. Two high octane speculation alternatives might present themselves: is there some other cause of these events, and is avian cholera being put forward as the best explanation of the data in lieu of having the public look more closely at the data that doesn’t seem to fit that explanation(like the suggestion of simultaneity in the pictures in the first article)? Is planetary physics or environment being affected in such a way as to cause these events? And if so, are they being obfuscated by “disease” explanations because “they” don’t want to cause a “panic”? Maybe. Again, I don’t know. I find this possibility disturbing, to say the least, but not very likely. Could these events be caused by some sort of secret human technology, or could they be the unintended consequence of its use or other secret activity? Maybe. Again, I don’t know. The bottom line for me is that I find the avian cholera explanation a bit disquieting as well. It seems, if I may state it simply, a bit too convenient. The bottom line here, is that there may or may not be a mystery here, even on the avian cholera version, for that version, plus similar events from the oceans and other places around the world, might suggest that diseases themselves are mutating and species-jumping in odd and unpredictable ways.
See you on the flip side…
ABOUT an hour east of Phoenix, near a mining town called Superior, men, women and children of the San Carlos Apache tribe have been camped out at a place called Oak Flat for more than three months, protesting the latest assault on their culture.
Three hundred people, mostly Apache, marched 44 miles from tribal headquarters to begin this occupation on Feb. 9. The campground lies at the core of an ancient Apache holy place, where coming-of-age ceremonies, especially for girls, have been performed for many generations, along with traditional acorn gathering. It belongs to the public, under the multiple-use mandate of the Forest Service, and has had special protections since 1955, when President Dwight D. Eisenhower decreed the area closed to mining — which, like cattle grazing, is otherwise common in national forests — because of its cultural and natural value. President Richard M. Nixon’s Interior Department in 1971 renewed this ban.
Despite these protections, in December 2014, Congress promised to hand the title for Oak Flat over to a private, Australian-British mining concern. A fine-print rider trading away the Indian holy land was added at the last minute to the must-pass military spending bill, the National Defense Authorization Act. By doing this, Congress has handed over a sacred Native American site to a foreign-owned company for what may be the first time in our nation’s history.
The Apache are occupying Oak Flat to protest this action — to them, a sacrilegious and craven sell-off of a place “where Apaches go to pray,” in the words of the San Carlos Apache tribal chairman, Terry Rambler. The site will doubtless be destroyed for any purpose other than mining; Resolution Copper Mining will hollow out a vast chamber that, when it caves in, will leave a two-mile-wide, 1,000-foot-deep pit. The company itself has likened the result of its planned mining at Oak Flat to that of a nearby meteor crater.

“In the water world, the pre-1914 rights were considered to be gold,” exclaimed one water attorney, but as AP reports, it appears that ‘gold’ is being tested as California water regulators flexed their muscles by ordering a group of farmers to stop pumping from a branch of the San Joaquin River amid an escalating battle over how much power the state has to protect waterways that are drying up in the drought. As usual, governments do what they want with one almond farmer raging “I’ve made investments as a farmer based on the rule of law…Now, somebody’s changing the law that we depend on.” This is not about to get any better as NBCNews reports, this drought is of historic proportions – the worst in over 100 years.
The current drought has averaged a reading of -3.67 over the last three years, nearly twice as bad as the second-driest stretch since 1900, which occurred in 1959.
Other studies using PDSI data drawn from tree-ring observations reaching even further back in time reveal similar findings. One such study from University of Minnesota and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute researchers showed the current drought is California’s worst in at least 1,200 years.
The State Water Resources Control Board issued the cease and desist order Thursday against an irrigation district in California’s agriculture-rich Central Valley that it said had failed to obey a previous warning to stop pumping. Hefty fines could follow.
The action against the West Side Irrigation District in Tracy could be the first of many as farmers, cities and corporations dig in to protect water rights that were secured long before people began flooding the West and have remained all but immune from mandatory curtailments.
“I’ve made investments as a farmer based on the rule of law,” said David Phippen, an almond grower in the South San Joaquin Irrigation District. “Now, somebody’s changing the law that we depend on.”
Phippen said his grandfather paid a premium price in the 1930s for hundreds of acres because it came with nearly ironclad senior water rights.
Phippen said he takes those rights to the bank when he needs loans to replant almond orchards or install new irrigation lines. He fears that state officials are tampering with that time-tested system.
Several irrigation districts have filed unresolved legal challenges to stop the curtailments demanded by the state.
Among them is the West Side Irrigation District, which claimed a victory in a ruling last week by a Sacramento judge who said the state’s initial order to stop pumping amounted to an unconstitutional violation of due process rights by not allowing hearings on the cuts.
Superior Court Judge Shelleyanne Chang also indicated, however, that the water board can advise water rights holders to curtail use and fine them if the agency determines use exceeded the limit.
West Side is a small district with junior water rights, but the ruling also has implications for larger districts with senior rights.
West Side’s attorney Steven Herum said the order issued Thursday was prompted after the judge sided with his client.
“It is clear that the cease-and-desist order is retaliatory,” Herum said. “It’s intended to punish the district.”
Still the farmers face an uphill battle…
Buzz Thompson, a water rights expert at Stanford Law School, expects California to prevail in the fight to pursue its unprecedented water cuts because courts have consistently expanded its authority.
“It’s only when you get into a really serious drought that you finally face the question,” he said.
California is an anomaly among Western states in the way it treats water rights. Thompson said other states use widespread meters and remote sensors to measure consumption or don’t provide special status to those with property next to natural waterways.
“In any other state, this wouldn’t be a question,” he said.
California rights holders are going to have to abide by more strict measurement requirements starting next year after fighting several attempts to overhaul the rules for decades, said Andy Sawyer, a longtime attorney at the water board.
“They long thought it’s nobody else’s business,” said Lester Snow, executive director of the California Water Foundation, which advocates for better measurement of water consumption to improve management.

Hungary has taken a bold stand against biotech giant Monsanto and genetic modification by destroying 1000 acres of maize found to have been grown with genetically modified seeds, according to Hungary deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar.
Unlike many European Union countries, Hungary is a nation where genetically modified (GM) seeds are banned. In a similar stance against GM ingredients, Peru has also passed a 10 year ban on GM foods.
Almost 1000 acres of maize found to have been ground with genetically modified seeds have been destroyed throughout Hungary, deputy state secretary of the Ministry of Rural Development Lajos Bognar said.
The GMO maize has been ploughed under, said Lajos Bognar, but pollen has not spread from the maize, he added. burning-gmo
Unlike several EU members, GMO seeds are banned in Hungary. The checks will continue despite the fact that seek traders are obliged to make sure that their products are GMO free, Bognar said.
During the invesigation, controllers have found Pioneer Monsanto products among the seeds planted.
The free movement of goods within the EU means that authorities will not investigate how the seeds arrived in Hungary, but they will check where the goods can be found, Bognar said. Regional public radio reported that the two biggest international seed producing companies are affected in the matter and GMO seeds could have been sown on up to the thousands of hectares in the country.
Most of the local farmers have complained since they just discovered they were using GMO seeds.
YES!! Shasta County Supervisors demand an investigation after expert scientific testimony from Dane Wiggington, airline pilots, doctors, biologists, attorneys and others that chemtrails threaten the entire web of life on the planet. This hearing topples the first domino for more hearings and investigations. The domino’s are falling everywhere lately…interesting times indeed :)
On July 15th, 2014, citizens from Northern California rallied to create the largest attendance ever at the Shasta County Supervisors chambers (400+, chairman Les Baugh confirmed this attendance record at the start of the meeting). The primary purpose of this meeting was to present information that proves there is a very dire heavy metal contamination and UV radiation issue across the Shasta County region (and the world). A list of 10 experts presented data to the board to confirm the legitimacy of the concerns being addressed. At the end of the presentation, the board voted unanimously to investigate the heavy metal contamination and passed resolutions accordingly. The video below documents the events of this landmark day in the fight to expose the crime of global geoengineering, all experts are identified with labels in the video (the new edited, condensed version).

The state of California is experiencing a relentless and historic 1200 year drought. This unparalleled disaster has proven to be as crippling and destructive as any in American history. If this slow-motion calamity continues to unfold, as it has over the past four to five years, it may go down as the most consequential drought in American history.
Jerry Brown has been governor of California since January of 2011, precisely when the drought began. Quite curiously, he has taken up many other political issues with the fervor that many think he should have directed toward addressing the drought. Instead, year after year has gone by with nary a peep from Sacramento … until 2015.
Brown has recently imposed a growing set of draconian water usage restrictions, the most strict controls ever enacted since the state was first incorporated in 1850. These 2015 water control and restriction initiatives effectively constitute his first response since the drought began. The point is that no other significant measures had been taken by state government which are either proactive or forward-thinking, constructive or provident.
More to the point, his various responses to this drought have been downright reactionary. Each and every government edict issued from the statehouse has functioned as a reaction to the behavior of the water consumers of California. The biggest corporate water users (and wasters), quite curiously, have been granted preferential treatment. For instance, the fracking industry has been allowed to use massive amounts of water while the average resident has been significantly restrained in their usage.
Likewise, transnational water bottlers like Nestlé are offered very special treatment compared to the state residents and small businesses which cannot live without water. Why would Governor Brown grant such concessions to such a large water seller, especially one that will ship its bottled water to markets both in-state as well as out-of-state?
In the midst of the California drought emergency, the huge multinational Nestlé, seller of bottled water to the world, is providing one example of what must be stopped. Gov. Jerry Brown, while cutting public water use 25% by order in Sacramento, as in the rest of the state, has placed no limitation on Nestlé’s withdrawal of freshwater from aquifer springs nearby. Nestlé (alias here: the Arrowhead Mountain Water Company) continues to draw water at an 80 million gallon/year rate, paying 2 or 3 cents/gallon; it bottles the water in Sacramento, and sells it for roughly $16/gallon-equivalent to the city’s population, which has had its tap water use restricted.

The key role that Governor Brown has been playing throughout this geoengineered drama is through the implementation of a purposely designed government reaction. The operative word here is:
R E A C T I O N !
“Reaction” in this particular context refers to the infamous Hegelian Dialectic in which the Problem ~ Reaction ~ Solution formula is utilized as a means to manufacture a specific outcome. There are a variety of state-desired outcomes in the case of this catastrophic California drought. Each “Reaction” by the populace to the “Problem” of the drought is first manufactured with the daily involvement of the mainstream media (MSM). Then, the state government kicks in with their predetermined “Reaction”. Ultimately, the perfect “Solution” will be presented when the requisite majority of citizens is sufficiently softened up to accept it without protest.
That a full-blown and unrelenting drought would be artificially fabricated in this manner is quite an extraordinary feat of “Problem”-making. There are very good reasons for such an extraordinary endeavor, and Governor Brown’s leadership appears to be an integral piece of that rapidly unfolding agenda.
Particularly in view of Governor Brown’s enthusiastic signing of the recently passed mandatory vaccine bill are many Californians suspicious of his stewardship. Clearly, that single act of betrayal has cast many of his other dubious initiatives throughout his term under a distinctly negative light.
Simply put, there are now many residents who feel that Governor Brown is an active participant in a scheme to use the state of California as a means of introducing a whole new out-in-the-open geoengineering regime. The following in-depth essay reveals many of the details of this scheme, as well as those of related conspiratorial plots.
Given that California serves as the major agricultural producer for the nation, it does not get any more serious than a drought of this severity, particularly one so unremitting. Simply put, this manmade disaster is shaping up to be the Catastrophe of the Millennium. That may sound like hyperbole until one considers what is truly at stake.
Because California was established as the premier agricultural state of the nation, its importance to the food security of the USA cannot be overstated. It also represents the 8th largest economy in the world, thereby making its HUGE contribution to the GDP both overwhelmingly significant to the economic health of this country and, therefore, incapable of being ignored. Except that it has been ignored … consistently and quite incredibly, by both the U.S. Federal Government and the State Government of California.
As a matter of fact both President Obama and Governor Brown have been remarkably AWOL throughout this entire saga, with the exception of the passage a new draconian laws which have been deemed necessary in order to provoke a reaction from the people. The complete lack of federal response to the California drought is clearly as deliberate and premeditated as it is a crucial part of the strategy of their overarching and clandestine agenda.
What is that agenda?
The agenda is a complex and convoluted one. The primary purpose of the California strategy is to use the engineered drought as a means to impose an unlawful geoengineering program … as a ‘remedy’ to this and all future droughts and deluges. There is now no question that the drought was purposefully geoengineered over the course of Jerry Brown’s most recent tenure as governor. He has never once publicly addressed the persistent chemtrails which have been sprayed incessantly over the past five years.
Governor Brown Has Repeatedly Received Scientific Evidence Indicating That The Drought Was Purposefully And Meticulously Geoengineered
And yet in spite of this indisputable evidence, he has never responded to those parties who have provided the volumes of scientific research showing how it was geoengineered. The soil samples alone have revealed shocking levels of aluminum, barium and strontium. Each of these chemical elements just happens to be the major components of the standard chemtrail mix which is sprayed daily across the skies of America.
Of course, the resulting chemclouds then rain these noxious chemical agents on the land and water below. Over years of chemtrailing these and other toxic chemical compounds begin to bioaccumulate in the vegetation and animals on land, as well as in the marine animals and plants in the water bodies. Whole forests in northern California are now rapidly disappearing as both heat stress and lack of water conspire with these chemical contaminations to systematically weaken the trees. Then various types of pestilence and other infestations eventually kill off square miles of once healthy trees.
Governor Brown is fully aware of this devolving situation and has done nothing to address it. The chemtrailing continues as before despite so many bringing it to his attention. In many locations the chemtrailing operations appear to have been considerably ramped up to an alarming level of intensity. And still the Governor’s office has no response to those who have alerted him to the regularly chemtrailed skies and worsening emergencies across the state (e.g. wildfires in the form of forest fires, brush fires, grass fires; mudslides and flash floods; tree blight and plant pestilence; forest collapse; agricultural contraction; reservoir water loss, evaporating lakes and ponds, etc.).
Governor Brown has also received satellite imagery evidence conclusively documenting the role that HAARP technology has played in geoengineering the California drought. Satellite images do not lie, and leave very little room for misinterpretation for those experienced meteorologists who know how to read them. The Brown executive team has received this irrefutable scientific evidence and more. Nevertheless, they have refused to address it in any official manner, and have chosen to ignore it after deliberate consideration.
Governor Brown Has Witnessed The Same Chemtrails As Everyone Else —
Why has he steadfastly refused to acknowledge them?
Governor Brown goes back and forth to work everyday just like every other Californian. He sees perfectly clear days turn into cloudy ones in a matter of minutes. Within just an hour of intensive chemtrail spraying, which sometimes weaves an unmistakable tic-tac-toe board across the sky, chemclouds stretch across the previously blue sky, from horizon to horizon.
Because of this geoengineering phenomenon, the weather forecasters around the state have been made to look like total incompetents, as are the meteorologists in every state nowadays. How does a state government properly function in a state where the weather is now completely unpredictable, except for those who really do control the weather? Does the governor even consult with his chosen meteorologists during the ever-occurring disastrous weather events? Does he ever convene his panel of climate experts to discuss the reasons for the new climatological trends criss-crossing the state?
Just as the current covert and illicit geoengineering regime in California has exposed Governor Brown to be either another willfully negligent political operative who cares not a whit for the state or its residents. Or, he is prominently configured within a pivotal scheme to use California as an example for every other state, should they fail to succumb to the coming ‘legalized’ regime of geoengineering.
California does appear to be primary cog in the global machinery that was engineered to implement a New World Order to be administered by a One World Government that will be initially established to ‘fix’ global climate change. The following article well explains both the plot and purpose behind this highly ambitious and fatally flawed scheme.
It’s no accident that Jerry Brown’s tenure as governor has perfectly paralleled Barack Obama’s. Both politicos have had carefully managed political images that would be used to corral the entire spectrum of Democratic and left-wing, liberal and progressive voters into a pen of blind acceptance and uncharacteristic compliance. In this fashion a big chunk of the electorate has been used to manufacture consent around some of the most weighty issues that are preparing the way for this newly emerging and highly oppressive carbon management regime.
Through his actions and inaction, Governor Brown has violated the public trust. The government of California has broken the social contract. Especially due to willful neglect has Brown’s administration betrayed the people they have sworn to protect. Likewise, Sacramento’s shirking of its most fundamental responsibility to safeguard the state represents a perfidious government that can no longer be tolerated.
In light of these serious transgressions against both people and property, Governor Jerry Brown must be recalled. Not to recall him in a formal ballot would signify a profound failing of the people of California. His conduct in office concerning this and other grave matters now demands an appropriate response from the voting public.
Just as another woefully inadequate Democratic governor (Gray Davis) was ignominiously recalled and replaced by a candidate from the opposition party, so, too, can Jerry Brown, be successfully recalled. Truly, this governor has morphed into a “corporate fascist” whose treacherous leadership should not be ignored. Surely, the people and the environment stand to suffer greatly from his corrupt administration and unprecedented lack of stewardship.
It has never been so urgent that a suitable replacement for Jerry Brown be identified. Any prospective candidate must have the best interests of the people as his/her highest priority. Therefore, it is highly advisable that a rigorous candidate search begin in earnest. Governor Brown must be removed from office with all deliberate speed before the state of California completely crashes and burns.

I am on the deck of the Rainbow Warrior ship, sailing along the Great Barrier Reef as part of the global campaign to protect this amazing natural wonder.
And I want to say thank you for making that happen.
It is thirty years today since the French secret service exploded two bombs under the first Rainbow Warrior, sinking our beloved ship in Auckland harbour and killing our good friend Fernando Pereira.
I was captain that day and the memory will never leave me. We were campaigning to stop the French government from testing nuclear bombs and they were determined to silence us.
Thankfully, they did not. Millions of people around the world who supported Greenpeace made sure that even in the face of such a deadly attack, we did not stay quiet.
That attack drew more people to Greenpeace and, more importantly, helped us win. Money was raised to buy the next Rainbow Warrior, which returned to the Pacific year after year until nuclear testing ended in 1996.
Over the last 30 years, our ships have been central to campaigns to stop whaling, bring an end to dumping nuclear waste at sea, ban destructive driftnets and expose the deadly trade in toxic waste. We’ve confronted illegal fishing vessels, found evidence of dodgy timber smuggled across the ocean from the Amazon — and donated the ships for humanitarian relief work.
But we could not have done it without you. That’s why today I’d like to pay tribute to supporters in over 190 countries who’ve been a relentless, powerful voice for this fragile planet:
The Rainbow Warrior has been a constant presence and I am honoured to sail her for you. This ship will continue to campaign against the biggest threats to our planet, the air we breathe, and our climate. And together, we’ll protect this glorious Reef.
Once again, thank you. Not just for being part of this – but also for making it possible.
Greenpeace Australia Pacific is part of a global movement of people taking action for a green and peaceful future. We rely entirely on voluntary donations to carry out our campaigns. The best way to help us keep fighting climate change, defending our oceans and protecting ancient forests is to make a donation. Thank you!
