DEA targeting of addiction treatment kratom will protect Big Pharma profits


Kratom is used in head shop products including tea. © head_shop_hippie
The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), currently starring in the new season of the Netflix series “Narcos,” is busy trying to class a relatively innocuous alternative treatment to methadone, kratom, as “Schedule I,” putting it on par with heroin, cocaine, and the most “dangerous” of them all – cannabis.

Citing questionable claims about its potential to cause fatal overdoses, the DEA hopes to list the natural opioid starting October 1, but a petition against the change has more than 110,000 signatures and counting, and points to studies that claim “it has been shown numerous times in reports from users to help recovering Opiate addicts, treat pain, combat depression and anxiety, and much more.”

In Alabama, where Kratom is already banned, addicts had to return to methadone with heroin use and overdoses reported to have increased by nearly 20 percent.

Unlike synthetic methadone, kratom is a natural substance which does little to benefit the big pharmaceutical companies who cannot patent it.

Image result for kratomMade from the leaves of Mitragyna speciosa, a Southeast Asian tree related to coffee, kratom activates opioid receptors in the brain and reduces pain, serving as a mild stimulant.

Its legality has attracted the attention of head shops, using it in products including energy shots and tea.

The DEA isn’t looking upon kratom with the same fondness though, announcing its intent to ban it in order to “avoid an imminent hazard to public safety.”

Kratom will sit alongside heroin, LSD, and ecstasy as having “a high potential for abuse, no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States, and a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision,” according to the DEA.

Because the petition surpassed 100,000 signatures, the White House will have to respond to it, but this is not expected to happen before kratom is newly classified at the end of this month.

It will then remain Schedule I for two years allowing the government to settle on a more permanent classification.

According to the DEA, there were 15 deaths in the US related to kratom between 2014 and 2016.

The Huffington Post reported that of the 30 deaths worldwide, other drugs and pre-existing health conditions also played a factor in several cases.

More than 25,000 fatal overdoses occurred in the US in 2014 using prescription drugs, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

Move Over Cotton, Say Hello to Hemp — The ‘Forbidden’ Crop That is Taking the World by Storm


by PAUL FASSA

hemp-usesAllowing and encouraging domestic hemp cultivation would be a boon for small farmers, especially organic farmers. I’m talking only about industrial hemp, not medical cannabis/marijuana, which continues to prove its merits and gain acceptance.

Industrial hemp’s use should be a no-brainer. But it’s a complex boondoggle of legal and bureaucratic nonsense even without THC, the molecule that leads to “Reefer Madness”.

Industrial hemp commercial cultivation is legal in Canada. But the USA hemp industry was pushed to the side by government connected industry insiders whose monopolies were threatened when it appeared hemp may boom and compete for the very products of their monopolist concerns.

Circa 1937, the hemp industry had been given a mechanical invention gift known as the decoricator machine was invented. It was a machine that was to hemp what the 19th Century cotton gin was. It replaced hand shredding of hemp to glean its fibers, fibers that could be used for textiles, clothing, paper, and plastic.

With the advent of the decoricator, hemp would have been able to take over competing industries in paper, textiles for clothing and other applications, fuel, and plastics. Growing hemp in abundance was easy, and it’s plant to harvest time was no more than six months.

According to Popular Mechanics during that time, “10,000 acres devoted to hemp will produce as much paper as 40,000 acres of average [forest] pulp land.” Then a  small number of large businesses with competition concerns used high level government connections to push through the Marijuana Tax Act of 1937.

The ensuing marijuana scares hyped by movies such as “Reefer Madness” brought about more legislation that would prohibit all hemp cultivation, even hemp without THC.

Prior to this, even without the high speed decoricator, hemp was an easy cash crop for small farmers, some of whom were recruited to continue cultivating hemp during WW II to provide hemp fibers for U.S. Naval ships’ ropes as well as other military applications.

And prior to that, hemp was so important during colonial and early American times that farmers were virtually required to cultivate it along with their other crops.

George Washington – “Make the most you can of the Indian Hemp seed and sow it everywhere.”

Thomas Jefferson – “Hemp is of first necessity to the wealth and protection of the country.”

Hemp for Nutrition

Hulled hemp seeds, their powders and cold pressed oils provide all the essential amino acids for easily digested high protein. Hemp is not only very high in omega-3, but it provides an almost perfect ratio of omega-3 to omega-6.

It is truly a super food that you can buy in health food stores or online. The seeds come from Canada, where industrial hemp is legal. Hemp is so nutritionally dense that one could survive on hemp seeds alone during extreme food shortages. If hemp were legal, you could easily grow your own.

Hemp Improves Farming

Hemp plants don’t need pesticides or synthetic fertilizers, which rely mostly on the phosphate industry. A phosphate industry byproduct is the sodium fluoride that is sold to municipality water works for our poisoned tap water.

The runoff from fields of phosphate fertilizers into waterways that merge with seawater is causing all sorts of nitrogen and phosphorous excesses and imbalances, leading to algae that stifles the water’s ecological support systems.

Hemp’s thick roots ward off weeds, and growing hemp improves the soil’s nitrogen, making that soil better for other crops. They would be useful and lucrative rotation crops for organic farmers.

Hemp plants have a growth cycle of only four months. In mild climates, harvesting hemp two times in one year would create an annual cash cow for farmers. The marijuana taboo is eliminated by allowing the male plants to continually pollinate the female plants. This reduces psychotropic THC to legal levels.

Eliminating Toxic Petrochemical Plastics

There is a clump of plastic waste residue larger than the state of Texas floating in the middle of the Pacific. A lot of it is expected to decompose, creating a plastic soup in the ocean. The toxins from this plastic soup spread out into other oceanic regions and are hazardous to fish and bird wildlife. This soup could find its way into our kitchens as well!

All kinds of plastics are produced with hemp, from clear wraps for foods to automobile parts. Hemp plastics are durable and heat resistant. And they are bio-degradable. Recently the French auto industry use hemp to manufacture some of its automobile parts. Henry Ford pioneered this in 1941 when he built his “vegetable car” with hemp and flax. It was stronger and lighter than steel cars.

Ford’s hemp-mobile also used hemp bio-diesel fuel, which creates very little pollution. The petroleum industry didn’t want to see or hear that. Hemp seeds were even used to make paints and lacquers in the mid-1930s.

Petrochemical plastics for all purposes could be replaced with hemp plastics that are non-toxic and bio-degradable. Bye-bye BPA!

Construction Materials for Housing

Amazingly, housing construction materials made from hemp fibers have been discovered to be superior to most cheap materials used in housing construction these days. Ever see a house under construction after its initial framing?

What you’ll usually see before whatever exterior coating is used are sheets of wood substitutes, either pasteboard or particle board or pressboards, some of which are processed and bound with toxic chemicals that can off-gas into interior quarters. It’s cheaper than other materials and used abundantly.

Inexpensive hemp can be made into various different building materials, hempcrete, fiberboard, carpet, stucco, cement blocks, insulation, and plastic. Those materials are stronger and much longer lasting than what’s being used currently. They are also mold and rot free and more fire resistant. And they are environmentally and ecologically friendly and non-toxic.

More Trees for Tree Huggers

Pulp from trees is used to make paper. But anything wood pulp can do, hemp fibers can do better. It’s said that the original Constitution and Bill of Rights were on hemp paper.

Paper from trees can be recycled maybe three times. Hemp paper can be recycled eight times. Since hemp was effectively banned in the USA since 1937, 70% of the USA’s forests have been eliminated. It takes years for trees to grow. Hemp can be gown and harvested within six months.

It’s estimated that one acre of hemp produces more oxygen from CO2 and methane than 25 acres of forest. One idea presented by hemp advocates is to have inner city hemp plots to improve urban air quality. We wouldn’t need bogus carbon tax legislation.

Pulping trees for paper creates more waste, pollution, and consumes more energy than most enterprises. This industry consumes more water than almost all others. It is the fifth largest industry consumer of energy, and it emits a good deal of toxicity in the process.

“Why use up the forests which were centuries in the making and the mines which required ages to lay down, if we can get the equivalent of forest and mineral products in the annual growth of the hemp fields?” Henry Ford

Anything the petrochemical industry can produce, hemp can do better without toxic synthetic-investmentsenvironmental and human consequences. Deforesting could be a thing of the past if hemp became the major source of construction materials and paper. Heavily pesticide and herbicide sprayed or GMO cotton wouldn’t be necessary, nor would toxic synthetic fibers.

Amazing how such an easily cultivated plant with so many beneficial applications has been so efficiently suppressed by the one or two percent for their purposes while too many among the 98% agreed with that suppression.

Ancient Foods that Decalcify the Pineal Gland‏


What Is the Pineal Gland?

Our pineal is a pea-sized pine-cone shaped gland located at the middle bottom of our brain hemispheres, just behind the top of the brow. The Egyptian Eye of Horus contains the pineal gland embedded within. Otherwise known by the Hindus as the Anja Chakra, 6th Chakra or Third Eye. And by Rene Descartes as the Principal Seat of the Soul, the pineal appears to hold unlocked potential that the ancients seemed well aware of.

spinning-skull

The Third Eye is depicted as being just above the brow, however the real Third Eye lies within the brain- at the very center of the head. It turns out the pineal gland is, in fact, a replica of the eye. Modern science admits they have just begun to unlock the secrets of the pineal- the last gland to be discovered.  They even call the pineal an atrophied third eye. Our pineal also contains photo-receptors  essentially the same as the rods and cones in our eyes- as well as nerves connected to the same parts of our brains as our eyes!

Containing tiny crystals, the pineal is piezoelectric, meaning it both responds to light and is bio-luminescent when stimulated. Enlightened beings have always been depicted with a halo or aura surrounding their head. Could the awakened pineal be the source of these light emanations? Pine cones contain the fibonacci sequence and have been a symbol of enlightenment throughout history.

Why would a gland in the middle of our brain be capable of detecting light? Most likely, this gland is some type of conduit for our inner vision. Perhaps this is the seat of the ‘silver chord’ that links us to our astral body.

Why We Need to Decalcify the Pineal?

The center of the pineal is water-filled. The pineal is supposed to be soft, however by the age of 12 most peoples pineals have become hard and atrophied.  This is mostly due to fluoride. Our water in the USA has been heavily fluoridated for years. 97% of water people drink in the world is not fluoridated. Fluoride calcifies bones in the body and  is found at the highest levels within the pineal gland.

Fluoride has been banned in China Austria Belgium Finland Germany Denmak Sweden Netherlands, Hungary and Japan. All these countries said Flouride is ineffective, toxic and should not be used.  -Dr. Jame E Rota, DDS Biological Dentist

“As a research chemist of established standing, I built within the past 22 years, 3 American chemical plants and licensed 6 of my 53 patents.  Based on my years of practical experience in the health-food and chemical field, let me warn:  fluoridation of drinking water is criminal insanity, sure national suicide.  Don’t do it…. Even in small quantities, sodium fluoride is a deadly poison to which no effective antidote has been found.  Every exterminator knows that it is the most efficient rat-killer …. Sodium fluoride is entirely different from organic calcium fluoro-phosphate needed by our bodies and provided by nature.”  Dr. E.H. Bronner, The Catholic Mirror, 1952

According to Dr. Mercola, Fluoride is also in our Antibiotics. If you really want to know why they’re dumping poison into our water, watch The Great Culling.

So what can we do?  Stop drinking municipal tap water, for one.  Refuse Flouride treatments at the dentist and toothpaste containing fluoride and start eating a diet that with assist in the decalcifying of the Pineal Gland.

Ancient Foods that Decalcify the Pineal Gland:

Foods High In Boron

Eating Boron is one great way to decalcify Fluoride form the pineal gand. In 1942 Stanley and Mercovich discovered an antidote to the destruction caused by Flouride: Boric Acid.  You can also get liquid mineral drops of Boron. One inexpensive solution is to simply take 1/4-1/8th tsp of borax along with a pinch of sea salt in a glass of water each day.

Foods high in Boron are: 

  • Avocados
  • Prunes
  • Raisins
  • Almonds
  • Hazelnuts
  • Dates.

Raw Cacao

If pineal activation is dependent, in part, to the vascularization or oxygen and blood-flow it only makes sense that Cacao should be utilized as a tool to bring more blood flow and oxygen to the pineal. Cacao contains high levels of Nitric Oxide capable of increasing the size of blood vessels by up to 30%.

Raw Cacao is recommended as a decalcifier since it contains high levels of Antioxidants. Cacao in the raw state contains high levels of Antioxidant (up to 400% more) as well s PEA (the Love chemical), and Anandamide (the Bliss chemical) that diminish when it is processed.  Medicinal Foods nutrient-dense Raw Chocolate Products contain Shaman’s Blend- supporting superfoods -some of which were used by ancient cacao shamans.

Other Medicinal foods that can help decalcify and activate the pineal gland are:

  • Garlic
  • Oregano Oil
  • Apple Cider Vinegar
  • MSM

Herbs which are supposed to be helpful in pineal awakening include:

  • Chamomile
  • Pine Bark
  • Lavender bud
  • Wild Indigo Bark
  • Violet
  • Licorice
  • Ginseng

Sky

Tonic Herbs such as those found in Medicinal Foods Spirit Tonic is highly recommended to enhance meditation as a premier Shen Tonic formulation. Shen can be equated to the light of the candle, or your aura. Tonic herbs were consumed in copious amounts by Taoist monks to open up energy meridian lines- especially to enhance meditation.

Turns Out E-Cigarettes Cause A Horrible Incurable Disease Called ‘Popcorn Lung’


The latest trend in smoking has been E-cigarettes. They have been promoted as a much safer alternative to smoking regular cigarettes. But of course, there’s the old saying that starts out, “if it’s too good to be true…”

It turns out the Harvard School of Public Health decided to do a study on E-cigarettes and the results are startling. It looks as if they may not pose the traditional cigarette threat, but they pose a different one altogether.

Diacetyl is a flavoring chemical used in E-cigs which are linked to cases of severe respiratory disease, most notably the incurable condition called “Popcorn Lung.” This condition was first noticed in workers in microwave popcorn processing facilities who inhaled the artificial butter flavoring. The disease is totally debilitating and irreversible. It’s a respiratory disease which causes scarring in tiny air sacs in the lungs. This leads to shortness of breath and excessive coughing

http-2F2Fhss-prod.hss_.aol_.com2Fhss2Fstorage2Fmidas2Ffda25ebb8878e1af7c60723261ff283f2F2031062792F543367593

They took 51 different flavored e-cigs and analyzed them. The author, Joseph Allen, along with his team, discovered that at least 1 of 3 top toxins were found in 47 of the e-cigs. These toxins are: diacetyl, acetoin, 2,3-pentanedione. They also discovered the following:

“The amount of diacetyl in 39 of the e-cigs exceeded the amount that was able to be detected by the laboratory. Diacetyl and other related flavoring chemicals are used in many other flavors beyond butter-flavored popcorn, including fruit flavors, alcohol flavors, and candy flavored e-cigarettes.”

Allan also noted how scary these findings are as the flavor names of these e-cigs include cotton candy, cupcake, and other flavors which would clearly be attractive to young people.

But that’s not all. Due to the fact that e-cigs are so new, it wouldn’t be a stretch to figure that even more risks will pop up in the near future. David Christiani, Elkan Blout Professor of Environmental Genetics, was the co-author of the study and said the following:

“Since most of the health concerns about e-cigarettes have focused on nicotine, there is still much we do not know about e-cigarettes. In addition to containing varying levels of the addictive substance nicotine, they also contain other cancer-causing chemicals, such as formaldehyde, and as our study shows, flavoring chemicals that can cause lung damage.”

It looks like the fruity-flavored “safe” alternative to traditional smoking, may not be all that after all, and it probably is best to cease any e-cig habits until further research is done on this emerging smoking trend.

Here’s a video where e-cigs led to devastating results for one man:

Step Out of the Echo Chamber


 

On a recent edition of The Fight Spot, I wrote about one of the aspects of doing our best creative work: stepping out of the echo chamber.

The dictionary definition of echo chamber is “an enclosed space for producing reverberation of sound.”

An enclosed place where the majority of what you hear is unoriginal (a multi-dimensional repeating of what was once said) and whatever you say is echoed back to you.

Echo Chamber is also a metaphor. Here’s the Wikipedia definition: In media, an echo chamber is a situation in which information, ideas, or beliefs are amplified or reinforced by transmission and repetition inside an “enclosed” system, where different or competing views are censored or disallowed.

By nature, each of us tend to sit in the center of our own echo chamber.

When we get too absorbed in the platform, the new, and the feedback, then the echo chamber becomes the place where we compare ourselves by ourselves. It becomes noisy. Inspiration runs dry. Our creativity gets stifled. We grow cynical and sarcastic. And it serves as an ever-present distraction and pacifier from doing work that matters.

When we look to the echo chamber as our sole source of inspiration, it’s like looking to a bag of chips for our sole source of nourishment. The constant barrage of our timelines and inboxes — those “little updates” — are like snacks and junk food. They will fill you up but they are not a significant form of nourishment.

How can you become a voice — how can you provide something original, unique, and valuable — when all your inputs are unoriginal echoes?

The inspiration and motivation needed for your best creative work will not come from the echo chamber.

  • Limit your feeds and inboxes. Subscribe only to the people and sources of input that enrich your life and give you the motivation and tools to do your best creative work.
  • Seek out inspiration from offline sources. Such as books, nature, conferences, silence, prayer and meditation, relationships, journaling, building your own projects, etc.
  • Create something every day. Write in your journal, come up with 10 ideas, take a photograph, draw a sketch, etc.
  • Curate what you share. Be a source of motivation, encouragement, and equipping to those who follow you. Put thought into the work you publish. Even your tweets and Facebook updates can be nuggets that motivate, equip, and encourage.

A Challenge to You

At some point this week, do one of these things:

  1. Unsubscribe from one RSS feed or email newsletter, or unfollow one person on Twitter or Facebook.

    (You should feel free to unsubscribe from my site / newsletter / unfollow me on Twitter — if what I am writing isn’t helpful to you at this time, or isn’t providing you with the motivation and tools to do your best creative work, then cut it out. You only have so much time, and the last thing I want is to be a non-helpful source of input in your day.)

  2. Take 15 minutes to find inspiration from an offline source. Read a chapter from a favorite book, put your phone in another room and just sit in silence, take a walk outside, etc.
  3. Create something. Write a journal entry, take a photograph, draw something, come up with 10 ideas for little ways you can show your friends and family how much you love them (you don’t even have to act on the 10 ideas you come up with).
  4. Do something to encourage or equip someone else.

Before you move on from this article, decide which one of the above challenges you’re going to do and make a time in your week for when you’re going to do it.

Monsanto Losing Millions As Farmers In India Rebel, Plant Indigenous Seed


cotton-2

By Christina Sarich

India — Monsanto is losing millions on failed GM cotton. The company illegally pushed a form of Bt cotton into India and Africa more than a decade ago, but farmers are now pushing back by planting their own indigenous seed.

Monsanto is accused of writing laws and then breaking them to enter the market in India, but after more than 300,000 farmer deaths between 1995 and 2013, many of them attributed to Monsanto, the company is finally paying for their misdeeds. The corporation’s greed is linked to farmer suicides throughout Maharashtra, considered the ‘Cotton Belt’ in India.

The Indian government is now actively promoting the use of indigenous seed, and has called Monsanto out for profiteering illegally on Bt cotton seed.

Monsanto has already lost nearly $75 million in royalties this year (5 billion rupees) due to the change in seed choice by farmers. Sales in India have fallen by 15 percent, and though this is a relatively small market share, it is still making a huge impact on the company’s bottom line.

This could be the end of Monsanto, altogether, in India. Keshav Raj Kranthi, head of India’s Central Institute for Cotton Research said:

“Just wait for the crucial three to four years to see a complete, natural turnaround. By then most farmers will give up Bt cotton and go for the indigenous variety.”

Notably, Burkina Fasso in West Africa also recently rejected Monsanto’s Bt cotton seed after finding the seed produced a poor quality cotton that fetched low prices for the farmers who bothered to grow it.

While Monsanto argues that its genetically modified seed is better, many studies state that their comparisons were not looking at hybridized and indigenous seed (not GM seeds) that give better crop quality and higher yields.

Bt cotton is genetically modified seed which contains Bacillus thuringiensis, a bacterium that produces toxins harmful to a variety of insects, including, supposedly, bollworms that attack cotton; however, like weeds that have become impervious to RoundUp, many organisms become even stronger when introduced to genetic mutations of Mother Nature’s perfection. Monsanto even admits that insect resistance to Bacillus thuringiensis is ‘natural’ and ‘to be expected’.

Indeed, the indigenous varieties of cotton have fared better against the bollworm, whitefly, drought, and other dangers that cotton farmers face.

Monsanto (doing business in India as Mahyco Monsanto Business Limited) has even threatened to pull out of India completely, calling the bluff of a government who threatened to lower their royalties; but the government was undeterred, cut their seed royalties by 74 percent, and capped seed prices.

This will bring much relief to cotton farmers in India, but with 96 percent of India’s cotton crop being developed with Monsanto’s Bt cotton, it could take generations to recapture the indigenous crop completely, while bankrupting the corrupt Monsanto simultaneously.

As Sanjeev Kumar Balyan, India’s Junior Agricultural Minister has said of Monsanto, “The greed has to end.”

Floaters: So What Are Those Damned Moving Amoeba Things In Your Eyes, Anyway?


By Tara McGinley,

You know those floaty, amoeba-shaped things you can see if you press your closed eyes with your hands then look at a bright light?

When I was a kid and saw those damned things I convinced myself that I had a special power where I had some sort of “microscopic vision” talent. I thought I could control them. I couldn’t. But it was fun to think so. Yep, I was a weird little kid.

It still happens to me from time to time in my adult life, so I found this short TED-ed video—that explains exactly what that visual phenomenon is known as “floaters”—highly informative and fascinating.

Homicide in Colorado drops more than 66% after marijuana legalized


marijuana

After dire predictions about what would happen if marijuana were legalized, new data collected from the Colorado Department of Public Safety suggests that certain crime rates have fallen by large amounts. As RT reports:

Less than six months into the experiment that Colorado took up by legalizing marijuana, state officials have released new data indicating that crime has fallen across a number of demographics since January 1.

The Colorado Department of Public Safety released data through the end of February indicating that not only has the doomsday scenario that law enforcement officials predicted not come true, but crime has fallen by significant margins.

Compared to the same time period in 2013, overall property crime fell by 14.6 percent in Denver. Homicide rates, while not leaving the single digits in either year, fell by 66.7 percent while the number of robberies decreased by seven percent.

If legalizing marijuana doesn’t create a new crime hellscape out of cities, then opponents may have just lost their last talking point.

Humanity is on a divergent track, one in which the masses are being purposefully diverted from their natural path of evolution in consciousness! Pokemon Go is a huge upgrade to intensifying the electronic Orwellian surveillance system of the CIA, NSA, and elite partners.

US Government Suddenly Urges Americans to Prepare for Catastrophic Events


Note: This is not fear mongering, I share Justin’s thoughts below on this subject. See the links below the article for suggestions on prepping..Blessings, {~A~}

Image Source.

(Stillness in the Storm Editor) The following has overtones of fear but I am sharing the information merely to highlight the fact that the government is apparently issuing overt warnings to the people. As such, I think it indicates that paradigm shifts are taking place and while it still appears as though major changes have not occurred, subtle transformations are happening.

This being said I do like to follow the simple adage of planning for the worst, hoping for the best, and expecting something in between.

A practical and balanced approach to the physical needs of life is part of our spiritual training in my view. As such, if you can prepare some basic material needs for yourself and loved ones it would a prudent step to take.

When the US government steps outside of the apple pie and baseball narrative of the American dream and issues warnings to prep, you’d better pay strict attention and start upping your preparedness game.

(Whether you believe that the threat to prep for is manufactured to engineer consent or not is, while an interesting debate, entirely beside the point of this article.)

The US government, much like the ones in Venezuela and Greece, likes to paint a rosy picture of life in our country, often to the point that those who are awake are incredulous that others accept the propaganda.

Sort of like when Obama said that anyone who claimed there was something wrong with the US economy was a peddler of fiction.

Or when Venezuelan President Maduro said last year that they were merely being environmentally friendly when they began rationing electricity.

But what does it mean when that rosy picture gets a huge rip down the center? Particularly when the rip comes straight from the government, whose usual job it is to photoshop the rips so no one sees them?

I can give you a recent example.  Remember how President Maduro said there was no food shortage for the longest time? Then suddenly, he announced that the country was out of food (as though the crisis hadn’t been building all along) and recommended that folks grow veggies and raise chickens on their balconies.

And then, all hell broke loose.

The country is out of positively everything and what is available is dramatically hyperinflated. (A dozen eggs for $150, anyone?)

Obama issued the first of 2 warnings to prep.

Most of us are well aware that when disaster strikes, we’re on our own. That has been proven in disaster after disaster, like when it took days to get aid to victims of Hurricane Katrina and Superstorm Sandy.

But usually, the government likes to downplay the need for independence. When they begin telling people to get ready, you’d better be sure that you are, because that means they know – absolutely know – that they won’t have the resources to aid those in need.

Related What Will The Global Economy Look Like After The ‘Great Reset’?

First, President Obama stepped away from the golf course to address FEMA at the end of May.

Here, from the White House website, is an excerpt from his speech:

“One of the things that we have learned over the course of the last seven and a half years is that government plays a vital role, but it is every citizen’s responsibility to be prepared for a disaster.

“And that means taking proactive steps, like having an evacuation plan, having a fully stocked disaster supply kit. If your local authorities ask you to evacuate, you have to do it. Don’t wait.

“And so one of the biggest, most important messages that we’re going to be delivering throughout hurricane season is that you cannot judge the dangerousness of a hurricane based on the fact that in the past it dissipated or it missed you.  If your local authorities say that you need to start evacuating, you need to start evacuating and get it done…

“…And what we’ve been seeing is some public complacency slipping in; a large portion of people not having preparedness kits, not having evacuation plans… If you need information about how to put together an evacuation plan, how to put together a disaster preparedness kit, as Craig said, we’ve got an app for everything now.

“We have a FEMA app in English and in Spanish to help you prepare your family for a disaster.  You can update the National Weather Service alerts.  You can get safety tips for more than 20 kinds of hazards.  It provides you directions to nearby shelters.

“So I would encourage every American, no matter where you live, to stay vigilant, to check Ready.gov — I will repeat that — that is Ready.gov — check that regularly to make sure your family is prepared for severe weather.”

As Michael Snyder pointed out on his website, The Economic Collapse Blog, Obama seems to really be pushing the idea of a FEMA camp:

“One more thing that I found particularly noteworthy about Obama’s speech was that he said that there is now “a FEMA app” that can direct you to the nearest “FEMA shelter” in the event of a major emergency…

“…Could you envision yourself and your family having to take refuge in a “FEMA shelter” someday?”

Once you enter the gates to Camp FEMA, you must understand that you’re completely under their control. When you eat, where you sleep, and how often you shower will all be regulated. Gee. It kind of sounds like prison, doesn’t it?

(For a look at what life in a FEMA camp might be like, check out A. American’s book, Forsaking Home. Yes, it’s fiction, but not outside the realm of possibility.)

Obama’s statements were all couched in a speech that coincides with hurricane season. On its own, this wouldn’t be a huge deal.

Now the DHS  has followed with a warning about potential evacuations in DC

It’s no surprise that the nation’s capital is a prime target for terrorist attacks. The DC public transit system known as “the Metro” began it’s year-long Safe Track program, performing repairs on the aging infrastructure.

While the repairs are much needed, the commuter congestion wrought by the changes in service have brought to light the very real issues that would occur in the event of a rapid evacuation of the city.

DC’s Homeland Security and Emergency Management Command Center is very concerned.

After Safe Track began last week, they started monitoring commuter transit and determined that:

“If a natural disaster or terrorist attack occurred in the city, evacuation routes would face a crush of vehicles.”

Well, we all know that’s obviously the way it happens during an evacuation. Remember the Hurricane Rita traffic jam back in 2005?

Out of 113 deaths attributed to the hurricane, 107 were associated with the evacuation, where people perished of heat strokes, a bus fire, and the exacerbation of chronic health issues.

So although evacuation is always a nightmare, the limited Metro service could elevate that to crisis proportions. DC Homeland Security Director Christopher Geldart has issued a warning to residents (again, the emphasis is mine):

Everyone needs to dust off their evacuation plans, understanding Metro isn’t a reliable option over the next year.

“When we put more vehicles on the road– like an emergency happening in the middle of the day and everybody leaving at the same time– that’s going to cause backup and it’s going to take people a good time to get home,” Geldart said.

“It will take longer– much longer– than they are used to. So what we’re telling folks is, you need to have a plan with your family.”

The reasons behind these warnings to prep are nothing new, but…

Does the government know something that we don’t? Is there something big coming down the pipe?

Something so big that the government isn’t going to be able to manage the crisis to their own advantage?

Are they washing their hands of the responsibility they willingly took on when they created organizations like FEMA to “take care” of citizens?

While the reasons behind these warnings are the backbone of every good prepper’s philosophy, the fact that the government is issuing them is rather worrisome. It belies the “nothing to see here” philosophy that is the usual trademark and puts the ball firmly in the court of the US citizens.

Any prepper worth his or her roll of tinfoil has to immediately think that something is up when these types of warnings come out of the mouths of those who normally act like we’re enemies of the state. But here’s where a significant issue lies.

Maybe they know something is coming. Maybe they’ve organized what’s coming as a way to take greater control. But in the midst of the crisis, it doesn’t actually matter how the crisis got started. You just have to survive it.

While the thought that our own government could have been responsible for some of the most heinous acts ever committed on American soil is disturbing at the very least, if you find yourself caught up in a terrorist attack, my opinions on the culprit don’t matter and neither do yours.

All that matters in those minutes, hours, or the days of the aftermath, is surviving.

It doesn’t honestly matter HOW it happens. Whether it is an enemy attack, as in the novel One Second After, a government false flag in order to institute martial law, or a natural act, when a disaster strikes, what matters is your readiness to deal with it.
So what should we take from these warnings?

It’s imperative that you respond when the nanny government issues warnings to prep, but not from  a place of fear.

You should respond by getting prepared. Not in the government-recommended “3 days of supplies” kind of way, either. That’s for lightweights.

Ask yourself the following questions, and don’t just gloss over the answers, because these could potentially be matters of life and death.

  1. Do you have enough food and water to care for your family for a month with no trips to the store?
  2. Do you have a back-up sanitation plan in the event that you don’t have running water in your home for an extended period of time?
  3. Do you have a route if your area were to face a mandatory evacuation? Do you have a back-up route? Do you have a route that you could take if all of the main thoroughfares were gridlocked?
  4. Do you have a plan for grabbing what you need if you had to leave your home in 15 minutes from this very second?
  5. Do you have an emergency water filtration system? A secondary source of water?
  6. Are you prepared for a power outage lasting up to a month? Could you cook? Stay warm or cool?
  7. Do you have a plan for meeting up with family if a disaster strikes when you are separated? What if communication is down? What if you are away from home and need to get home?
  8. Are you fit enough to leave home on foot, carrying what you need to survive?
  9. Do you have family members with special needs or health concerns? If so, have you prepped to take care of these needs if you have no power and can’t get to the store or pharmacy?
  10. In a situation of civil unrest due to a lack of supplies, could you keep your home and family safe? Could you take care of medical emergencies on your own if no one was answering the phone when you dialed 911?

Well?

How did you do? Could you say yes to every question or do you have some work to do?

If you can’t answer yes to every single question above, you’re not prepared.

The scenarios above aren’t even the worst that a prepper could dream up. They’re all short-term emergencies of a month or less, and every single one of them is realistic.

I can cite a recent event for each and every one of them during which people most likely wished they’d paid more attention and planned ahead.

If you can’t say yes to those questions, don’t despair. Don’t feel hopeless.

Here’s what you can do.

You can get started right now. You can get prepped. Even if your budget is tight, if your family is not on board, or if you are assailed with doubts. You can get ready for not only possible, but likely occurrences.

Don’t start out prepping for a 30-year nuclear winter or other outrageous Doomsday Prepper-style scenario. Start out with the things that are the most realistic.

Look at the bad things going on in the world today and prepare for those. Start out with a week of preps and an evacuation plan and build up from there.

  • The annual hurricanes, blizzards, and tornadoes that hit the US
  • The likelihood of civil unrest in our volatile society
  • The possibility of a tainted municipal water supply
  • A personal economic crisis, like an unexpected expense or a job loss
  • A national economic collapse, like the one in Venezuela
  • A horrifying crime wave like the one in Europe due to clashes between Europeans and migrants

None of these events is unlikely. In fact, they’re all happening right now. Some in our own neighborhood. Some in other countries. But they’re all happening.

Start out with a week of preps and an evacuation plan and build up from there. Get a good comprehensive book, stock up on some long-term emergency foodcreate a water plan, and build a pantry.

Or, if you are really, really motivated and ready to up your game, make a genuine, accountable commitment to it.

Take a course like the one I’m teaching with Lisa Bedford (aka the Survival Mom). I can promise you that if you follow all of the guidelines in the Summer Prepping Intensive, you will absolutely be able to say yes to each of the questions above.

Whatever you do, don’t be paralyzed by fear. Don’t just blithely do nothing and figure it will all work out.

You have a responsibility to yourself and the ones you love to heed the warnings, watch the signs, and prepare accordingly.

Are you ready yet?

Tattoos may cause cancer – one color more than the other than others


How Tattoos cause cancer? In the EU there are no regulations when it comes to ink, so cheap imports are a matter of worry.

According to some research tattoos can cause cancer, and there are more toxins in one particular color than in any of the others. So there has been concerns if tattoos cause cancer.

The European Chemicals Agency is has conducted a research that is looking through the connection of risks coming with being tattooed. They said: “Many reports show significant concerns for public health stemming from the composition of inks used for tattooing.

“The most severe concerns are allergies caused by the substances in the inks and possible carcinogenic, mutagenic or re-productively toxic effects.”

Because there is no regulation when it comes to ink, If harmful toxins are discovered, they can be banned. This is another concern that adds to the research if tattoos cause cancer.

A spokesman from the agency said: “If it is found that a restriction is needed, a formal proposal to restrict the substances will be submitted within one year to initiate the process.”

One particular color that has been concerning scientist more than other color is red. This is because there has been a connection between this color and dermatitis, including soreness and swelling, and mostly because it contains mercury sulphide.

Red, purple, blue and green are the colors that are prone to causing granulomas, which are little bumps on the skin.

The public has been asked to make a contribution to these studies so they can have more essence. There have also been warnings against “black” or “neutral” henna.

These two colors may have higher levels of chemical dye than the original orange color of henna. This dye is ‘so powerful and toxic that it is illegal to use it on the skin’.

The NHS warned: “If you see a shop or stall offering to paint black tattoos onto your skin, don’t be tempted to get one. It could leave you scarred for life and put you at risk of a life-threatening allergic reaction.”

A visit to the doctor is advised to those who experience an allergic reaction.

The “Fountain of Youth” Herb That’s Prized in Ayurvedic Medicine by Ty Bollinger


 
ashwagandha-indian-ginseng1

Legend has it that famed Spanish explorer Juan Ponce de León set sail not just to survey the New World, but to seek out the fabled “Fountain of Youth.” This was a mystical water source that primordial folklore promised could cure a man of all his ailments and keep him looking and feeling young forever if he simply sipped a splash of its crystal-clear deluge.

Ponce de León and his crew traveled to what we now know as Florida in search of this panacea. However, he was only to discover (with much disappointment), that this land of palm trees, sunshine, and year-round warmth provided no such elixir from any of its natural springs.

Like any famous tale, there’s probably more myth to the legend of Ponce de León’s excursion than actual fact. But historical records do show that almost all civilizations (both past and present) have revered the idea that somewhere out there is a cure-all for human conditions.

Whether it be miracle waters or some kind of “magic” herb… it is just waiting to be discovered by a brave and adventurous soul seeking it out for the benefit of humanity.

It’s a hopeful thought that, again, seems to be more the subject matter of an imaginative fantasy novel than the real world in which you and I live.

But what if I told you that a “Fountain of Youth”-type elixir does, in fact, exist?

Long prized as a life-extending “miracle” herb in Ayurvedic medicine, the plant I’m about to cover is arguably one of the most comprehensive healing substances known to man. And, I’m excited to share with you its many scientifically-proven health benefits.

Withania somnifera: An Adaptogenic, Rejuvenating Herb of the Highest Order

Known more commonly as ashwagandha or Indian ginseng, withania somnifera has long held a prominent place in Ayurvedic medicine. Its use dates at least as far back as 4,000 B.C.

The traditional Indian approach to healing involved using ashwagandha as a “Rasayana.” In Sanskrit this literally means “that which negates old age and disease.” The life essence, so to speak, of Ayurveda, and one of functional medicine’s most precious herbs.

The prefix “ashwa” translates as “horse,” the implication being that consuming this herb gives one the power of a horse. Ashwagandha’s many benefits include its narcotic, diuretic, aphrodisiac, anthelmintic, astringent, stimulant, thermogenic, and tonic properties. It also has benefits of adaptogenic nature. Adaptogens, in case you weren’t aware, are herbs that modulate the body’s stress response, adjusting hormones and other substances either up or down depending on what the body needs.

The stress hormone cortisol, for instance, can cause all sorts of health problems when left unchecked. Think irritability, weight gain, diabetes, and heart disease. The ashwagandha plant has the ability to normalize cortisol levels and protect the body from harm.

Ashwagandha is also powerfully rejuvenating, helping to energize the body, strengthen immunity, and balance hormone levels. All of these have the effect of making a person look and feel younger.

The Amazing Health Benefits of Ashwagandha

More than 200 studies reinforce the many known health benefits of ashwagandha. These include:

  • Increased stamina and endurance
  • Improved thyroid and adrenal gland function
  • Reduced stress and fatigue
  • Protection against gastric ulcers
  • Enhanced memory and cognition
  • Protection against neurological disease and neurodegeneration
  • Increased mitochondrial function and energy levels
  • Anti-inflammatory and anti-arthritic effects
  • Anti-tumor and anti-cancer effects
  • Improved immunity
  • Boosted athletic performance
  • Better sleep and decreased anxiety
  • Central nervous system support

As you can see, the uniquely adaptogenic nature of ashwagandha makes it a potent remedy for nearly every facet of health that needs correcting or balancing.

Unlike pharmaceutical drugs and other therapeutic substances that directly alter a specific cellular function or gene expression in order to address a particular set of symptoms, ashwagandha helps the body to self-adapt. It does this in order to facilitate proper rest, energy production, metabolic function, hormone modulation and various other functions.

ashwaghanda-herb-ayurveda-medicine

Ashwagandha is Among the Most Revered Ayurvedic Herbs

“Rasayana is described as an herbal or metallic preparation that promotes a youthful state of physical and mental health and expands happiness,” explains a study out of India looking at the historical prominence of ashwagandha in traditional medicine. “These types of remedies are given to small children as tonics, and are also taken by the middle-aged and elderly to increase longevity.”

As for ashwagandha’s relevance in the medicinal hierarchy, this same study declares that among the Ayurvedic Rasayana herbs, ashwagandha “holds the most prominent place.

When it comes to cancer, ashwagandha has demonstrated powerful benefits in the treatment of cancer − including that of the lung and prostate.

Best Forms of Ashwagandha and How to Take it

The most biologically active form of ashwagandha is said to be Nagori ashwagandha, though wildcrafted varieties have a similar composition. It is complete with all the alkaloids, withanolides (steroidal lactones), saponins, fatty acids, amino acids, choline, and the various other anti-stress and immunomodulatory agents that make it such a powerful medicine.

Ayurvedic health experts recommend consuming this variety as a fresh powder made from the roots of the plant. However, the leaves, flowers, and seeds can also be beneficial when prepared for other purposes.

Since ashwagandha is an herb, and a relatively mild one at that, it can be taken regularly as part of a healthy diet. This is because it’s basically just a food.

And when I say mild, I mean that it provides gentle benefits in harmonious synergy with your body’s own biological processes, exhibiting minimal (if any), negative side effects. However, if you’re pregnant, it’s recommended that you take ashwagandha under the supervision of a qualified health practitioner, preferably someone well-versed in Ayurvedic medicine.

Traditionally, 5-10 grams of high-quality, organically-grown Withania somnifera root powder is mixed into a glass of warm cow’s milk. This is consumed once or twice daily for optimal benefits. If you consume cow’s milk, I would recommend an organic, grass-fed, raw variety gently warmed rather than cooked at high heat, as high heat will essentially pasteurize the milk and destroy its vital enzymes.

Alternatively, you can mix the powder into a warmed milk alternative (i.e. nut milk), blend it into a smoothie, or combine it with raw honey to form ashwagandha superfood “balls.”

Whatever method you can tolerate is adequate. Ashwagandha supplements made from pure root powder with no fillers are another great option.

The Chopra Center recommends taking ashwagandha at a dosage of 600 to 1,000 milligrams twice daily. Individuals who suffer from insomnia and/or anxiety can, again, combine the powder with a warm beverage. This can be milk, a milk substitute, or even water. Consume before bed for optimal results.

If you’re really serious about aging with grace, balancing your hormones, minimizing stress, boosting your energy levels, and improving your neurological health with ashwagandha, it’s important not to forget about your diet. The fewer cheap carbohydrates, processed grains, and refined sugars you eat, the better. And remember… plenty of healthy fats, nutrient-dense proteins, and fiber-rich foods are a must.

Lee Harris Energy Update – Extreme Consciousness – Birthing a Humanitarian Collective


Key points:

• Extreme consciousness is arriving now.
• Sensitives will be noticing the extreme pulses of growing consciousness right now, emotionally and energetically, as we move between dark and light at greater speeds.
• The healing of unconsciousness in our world is currently focused on: Division. This period brings up extreme reactions, emotions and actions as what was once suppressed and divided within us, rises for healing and integration. Once these inner energies are healed and integrated, new potentials, senses of purpose and creativity birth in response. This is a time of new and fast birth.
• The past is releasing fast. This means memories rise as old habits release from your body.
• A brand new stamina is available for those who tend to their self-care.
• A New Collective purpose is birthing – a more humanitarian way of being. As this births in you, it raises intimacy issues to the surface and asks how close you can be to others, and how awake you can be on a daily basis.
• This is a time of fast fusion – equal parts potent and challenging.
• Remember the mantra ‘everything changes’ at times like these.

What Came Before, featuring Steve-O: The Truth About Meat and Modern Farms


Factory farms dominate U.S. food production, employing abusive practices that maximize agribusiness profits at the expense of the environment, our communities, animal welfare, and even our health.

Far from the idyllic, spacious pastures that are shown in advertisements for meat, milk, and eggs, factory farms typically consist of large numbers of animals being raised in extreme confinement. Animals on factory farms are regarded as commodities to be exploited for profit. They undergo painful mutilations and are bred to grow unnaturally fast and large for the purpose of maximizing meat, egg, and milk production for the food industry. Their bodies cannot support this growth, which results in debilitating and painful conditions and deformities.

The factory farming industry puts incredible strain on our natural resources. The extreme amount of waste created by raising so many animals in one place pollutes our land, air, and water. Residents of rural communities surrounding factory farms report high incidents of illness, and their property values are often lowered by their proximity to industrial farms. To counteract the health challenges presented by overcrowded, stressful, unsanitary living conditions, antibiotics are used extensively on factory farms, which can create drug-resistant bacteria and put human health at risk.

To learn more about the devastating effects of factory farming on animals, human health, and the planet, explore the links to the left.

The global power structure has long since been waging a war against global populations on countless fronts. Vaccinations (now forced by law in some regions), and  the ongoing highly toxic covert climate engineering operations, are the two most direct assaults against human health. Whether injected through a hypodermic needle, or inhaled through the lungs, the sources of contamination to the human body are mounting rapidly and taking an immense toll on the population as a whole. GeoengineeringWatch.org is sponsoring and organizing a major public awareness event (and call to action) on Friday, August 5th, 2016, in Redding, California. There is no admission fee for this event, it is FREE, and there are no parking fees. My most sincere gratitude to all the dedicated activists, without whom the organizing of this event would not have been possible. The event will be staged in the heart of downtown Redding, at the historic Cascade Theater which seats over 1000.

10w

The Cascade Theater seats over 1000, and has full balcony seating.

A full day of film screenings, power point presentations, and Q & A sessions will begin at 9:45 am, when Dr. Sherri Tenpenny kicks off the event with her presentation “Vaccine Mandates: Adults Are Next”. The medical industrial complex will not relent in their campaign to force now proven unsafe vaccinations on the population.

At 11 am Dane Wigington from GeoengineeringWatch.org will present “Climate Engineering, The Covert Weather Warfare Assault”. Skies all over the globe are being saturated with highly toxic heavy metals and chemicals that are part of the ongoing climate engineering/geoengineering/solar radiation management assault on the environment and climate system. The human race (and the entire web of life) has been subjected to an unimaginably massive and lethal experiment without our knowledge or consent.

Extensive free public parking is just across from the Cascade Theater on the North side of Placer Street. There are numerous dining establishments located a short walking distance from the theater.

The guest speakers at this event will be available on and off throughout the day in the lobby to answer questions individually. There will be an informational materials table which will supply FREE critical educational materials (on vaccination dangers and the climate engineering threat) to any that will try to put those materials to use. Educating others on the dire truths that our corporate owned criminal media institutions are not disclosing (and thus actually helping to hide) is absolutely essential. These materials will included commercial DVDs that thoroughly cover the climate engineering assault and have multiple menu presentations including the testimony of former government scientists. Attorneys from the GeoengineeringWatch.org legal team will also be present at the event to answer questions about the evolving legal action to expose and halt climate engineering.

The human race and the biosphere itself are at a most critical crossroad, where do we go from here? We invite all concerned and caring citizens to attend the Redding event, to increase their knowledge of what is unfolding around us all, and to learn what we can do to help turn the tide of insanity. We must not remain silent in the belief that someone else will cover the front line in the fight, this will not get the job done. All are needed to prioritize taking action in the essential effort to reach a critical mass of awareness, this is the only way forward in the fight. Make your voice heard in the battle to fully expose the truth, every day counts.
