Thousands of archaeological artifacts — and maps detailing where more can be found – are kept inside the national wildlife refuge buildings currently being held by an armed group of protesters angry over federal land policy.

Ryan Bundy, one of the leaders of the group occupying the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in southeastern Oregon, says they have no real interest in the antiquities. Still, their access to the artifacts and maps has some worried that looters could take advantage of the situation.

“There’s a huge market for artifacts, especially artifacts that have provenance, where you can identify where they came from,” said Carla Burnside, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s refuge archeologist.

More than 300 recorded prehistoric sites are scattered across the refuge, including burial grounds, ancient villages and petroglyphs. Some of the artifacts – including spears, stone tools, woven baskets and beads – date back 9,800 years.

WHY AREN’T THE RELICS AT A MUSEUM?

About 7,000 artifacts and samples from the refuge are kept at a museum in Eugene, Oregon. But 4,000 more are kept at the refuge for research.

Only Burnside has a key to the room containing the artifacts and the maps. She’s since seen pictures of the occupiers in her office, adjacent to the room where the artifacts are stored. The group has been looking through government files at the site, but it is unclear if they’ve gone through the room with the artifacts. Bundy told The Associated Press that he’s seen the artifacts and lots of maps, but he didn’t know what the maps illustrated.

The artifacts and maps are legally protected by the 1979 Archeological Resources Protection Act and other federal laws.

WHAT IS THE ARMED GROUP DOING WITH THE ARTIFACTS?

Bundy said they’re not interested in the artifacts and would turn them over to the Burns Paiute Tribe, if asked.

“If the Native Americans want those, then we’d be delighted to give them to them,” he said.

He said he didn’t think it was likely that anyone would use the maps to loot the site.

“We haven’t really been thinking along those lines,” Bundy said.

Removing artifacts from federal property without a permit is illegal.

WHAT ABOUT THE PREHISTORIC SITES?

Scientists are also worried about unintentional damage that could be done to the prehistoric sites by cattle, vehicles and heavy equipment.

The group at the ranch has driven road graders and other large construction equipment around the refuge headquarters buildings, but Bundy said they haven’t used the machinery to move any earth. He wouldn’t rule out that possibility, however.

In 2014, Ryan Bundy and supporters of the Bundy family rode ATVs on federal land closed to motorized vehicles in Utah as part of a protest. Their route took them along an illegal trail that crossed through Native American archeological sites.

HAVE THE SITES BEEN LOOTED BEFORE?

While well-known petroglyphs or other prehistoric sites are occasionally publicized for public viewing, federal land managers often go to great lengths to keep such locations secret when they can’t be safely protected from vandals and looters.

Looting has long been a problem at the refuge, with the first documented instance recorded in 1979, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service’s comprehensive conservation plan.

“It’s a huge problem in Oregon, especially in the southeast portion of the state,” said Dennis Griffin, the state’s archaeologist. “More often than not, when they are caught, it’s connected to drug running or seeking quick money on eBay.”

An online search of “great basin artifacts for sale” yields arrowheads, stone pestles and other items, many priced at hundreds of dollars each.

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

Burnside said the artifacts are part of the ancestry of the Burns Paiute Tribe and are priceless to science.

“There’s so much you can gain from looking at one artifact: Where the stone came from, how far they traveled, how it was used, the skill of the person who made it,” she said.

The tribe works extensively with federal officials on the archeology projects. Tribe officials didn’t return multiple phone messages requesting comment.

“Their history is being hijacked by these people,” Grayson said.

HOW DOES BUNDY WANT THE ARCHEOLOGICAL SITES HANDLED?

Bundy said people interested in archeology are welcome to explore the refuge, but that cattle ranchers and loggers should have priority when it comes to land use.

“Before white man came, so to speak, there was nothing to keep cattle from tromping on those things,” Bundy said.

Though some countries had domesticated cattle 10,000 years ago, the animals came to the United States with European settlers.

“We also recognize that the Native Americans had the claim to the land, but they lost that claim,” Bundy said. “There are things to learn from cultures of the past, but the current culture is the most important.”

Note: Instead of defending Native American rights to lands that were “stolen” thru deception, the militia’s are compounding and obfuscating the issues with statements like this:

“We also recognize that the Native Americans had the claim to the land, but they lost that claim,” Bundy said.

These men have absolutely no right occupying these lands and are only playing into the hands of agent provocateurs who wish to further divide the nation and only foment more anger, ultimately leading to violence and more police state control measures.

In addition, this alleged “sovereign, freeman movement” is throwing mud in the face of million’s of peaceful, non-violent people like myself advocating positive change thru spiritual transformation. There’s absolutely nothing “spiritual” about what’s taking place in Oregon, it’s simply another false flag event being guided by agent provocateurs Steve Payne and Pete Santilli.

Do the research on Pete…learn the truth.

One Week after MRI Confirmed Leonard Peltier is Suffering from an Abdominal Aortic Aneurism, Surgery Still not Scheduled


Published January 17, 2016

Leonard Peltier

Leonard Peltier has been in prison for 40 years

COLEMAN, FLORIDA — One week after an MRI confirmed a preliminary diagnosis that Leonard Peltier is suffering from an abdominal aortic aneurism, prison medical personnel still have not scheduled surgery to correct his medical condition.

Last Sunday evening, the  International Leonard Peltier Defense Committee (ILPDC) confirmed the  MRI results. At that time, the ILPDC said the size and location of the aneurism would be reviewed by physicians and a consultation would take place.

“Supporters should keep pressure on the Bureau of Prison for timely treatment and transfer to a suitable medical facility,” the ILPDC chairman Peter Clark stated.

Please visit http://www.bop.gov/inmates/concerns.jsp. Make reference to Leonard Peltier #89637-132 and USP Coleman I. Voice your concern about Leonard’s medical treatment, and let the federal Bureau of Prisons know that the world is watching. Demand that Leonard receive the best possible care.

First is researcher, and radio show host Christina Consolo aka Rad Chick.; Second is researcher, and radio host Joe Joseph. The three of them get into a great discussion which covers: The massive methane leak in a suburb of Los Angeles which is causing evacuations, and airline flight path changes; Earth changes like sinkholes, earthquakes, and ground upheavals and their affects on road infrastructure; And spaceweathers role in this whole “environmental shit show” as Christina calls it.

“Residents began calling the 9-1-1 emergency line, the fire department and air quality officials a day after the leak erupted, complaining about the smell of a gas odorant called mercaptans. They also reported getting headaches and nosebleeds…
Resident Matt Pakucko had made such calls and was told of a gas leak. He called the Gas Company early on Monday Oct. 26, and said a call center worker told him the situation was normal…”

Well. 7 weeks later and this leak is STILL going on. Experts from Kuwait oil fires being brought in indicates (imo) that situation is very very serious… Planes being told not to fly into affected area or they could IGNITE…FAA No-Fly zone in effect until March 8th 2016.

Bix Weir ALERT: Roota On The Cover of the 2016 Economist Magazine!!!


Sometimes it’s amazing how the Road to Roota Theory manifests over time.
It has come to my attention that the new January 2016 Economist Magazine Cover is once again set up to give us hints as to the games that will be played with our lives over the course of the new year.
The new cover was just posted and guess who is presented smack dab in the conspiracy area of the picture? (like the arrows 11.5 & 11.3 on last years cover)
 
ROOTA!!!!  aka ALAN GREENSPAN!!!
And he’s sitting right next to a pseudo-computer that is turning from 2008 to…???(the previous times he set his computer program to take down the system were 1987, 1993, 2000, 2008 and now 2015/2016!!
Also a gold coin is coming down on a parachute made from a US dollar, Merkle is hiding a GOLD top over a red jacket. Obama has a green tie…and on and on!!
I will be analyzing this cover for this weeks Friday Road Trip which you can sign up for at this link:
And you get $10 in hard copy bitcoin with every subscription or renewal and with bitcoin bumping up against $400 once again it won’t be long before we see a jump back over it’s old highs of $1,200 on it’s way to the MOON as the US Dollar Dies.
Should be quite a wild ride!
May the Road you choose be the Right Road.

‘Our Generation, Our Choice,’ Say Youth, Readying for Mass Civil Disobedience


Young people from across the country to sweep Washington, D.C. with direct action ‘to demand justice on race, climate change, and immigration’

Buoyed by President Barack Obama’s fresh rejection of the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline, thousands of young people from across the country are preparing to unleash on Monday what they say will be the “largest-ever civil disobedience for racial, climate, and immigrant justice.”

Under the Banner of “Our Generation, Our Choice,” the mobilization will sweep Washington, D.C. one year ahead of the 2016 national elections “to demand REAL leadership and make candidates’ agendas work for our movements, and for our future,” according to a group statement.

But the real emphasis, say organizers, will be on grassroots movement-building.

“The choice is clear: politicians are failing to take our country to where it needs to go, so a movement of young people will lead us there,” wrote Yong Jung Cho of 350.org, Waleed Shahid of Working Families, Devontae Torriente of Million Hoodies, and Sara Blazevic of the Fossil Fuel Student Divestment Network in a recent statement.

“[P]oliticians continue to throw away billions of dollars incarcerating people, deporting mothers and fathers, and polluting our people and our planet,” the organizers added. “They continue to saddle us with student debt. They aren’t helping create real jobs that can sustain us. They stand by as many of our friends live in daily fear of police and immigration enforcement. And they continue subsidizing polluting fossil fuel companies who destroy the land we live on and the air we breathe.”

“We take action to tell the American people: let’s get it done together,” the statement continued.

“The energy for tomorrow is really high,” Lindsay Meiman, communications coordinator with 350.org, told Common Dreams from a nonviolent direct action training in Washington, D.C., attended by 400 people.

The mass actions were organized by the climate groups Fossil Fuel Divestment Student Network and 350.org; racial justice group Million Hoodies; and immigrant rights group United We Dream. They have garnered support from numerous other organizations, including the Indigenous Environmental Network (IEN).

Dallas Goldtooth, U.S. tar sands campaign organizer for IEN, told Common Dreams that the mass action comes at a time when grassroots movements are proving their clout.

“You have the Keystone XL decision, which is victory for a lot of front-line communities along the route that have been fighting this for seven years now,” Goldtooth said. “Look at the Democratic debate in Las Vegas. Not only was Keystone XL mentioned, but also Black Lives Matter. Those are two grassroots-based movements.”

“As Indigenous communities, often our struggle as organizers is not just about fighting for environmental protections, sacred sights, or water—but really fighting for our survival, for the right to exists as we want to exist, for the right to self-determination,” Goldtooth continued. “I am excited that this is really bringing together all of these different social movements that have been gaining traction over the past few years and demonstrating that they all intersect.”

Ireland to ‘decriminalise’ small amounts of drugs, including heroin, cocaine and cannabis, for personal use


Minister also announced intention to implement ‘injection rooms’ in Dublin for addicts

Ireland will move towards decriminalising substances including heroin, cocaine and cannabis as part of a “radical cultural shift”, the country’s drugs minister has said.

Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, the chief of Ireland’s National Drugs Strategy, told a lecture at the London School of Economics on Monday that drug users will be able to inject in specially designated rooms in Dublin from next year.

The minister said attitudes to drugs needed to move away from shaming addicts to helping them and emphasised there was a difference between legalisation and decriminalisation.

It would remain a crime to profit – from either the sale or distribution of illegal drugs – but drug takers would no longer be criminalised for their addictions.

“I am firmly of the view that there needs to be a cultural shift in how we regard substance misuse if we are to break this cycle and make a serious attempt to tackle drug and alcohol addiction,” said Mr Ó Ríordáin.

However, while Mr O Ríordáin told The Irish Times that there was a “strong consensus that drugs across the board should be decriminalised,” he said it would be for Ireland’s next government to discuss.

BREAKING UPDATE: CONGRESSIONAL MARTIAL LAW DECLARED ~ SGTreport.com


For the second time in a month, Congress has implemented ‘Martial Law’ as a way of fast tracking unconstitutional spending bills in order to keep the bankrupt US government from collapsing. The use of martial law fast-tracks spending bills by BYPASSING typical procedures – it’s a stop gap measure of overt tyranny from the government of a nation which at this point is best defined as a ‘Banana Republic’.

First Nation News: Surveyors conducting unauthorized work for Petronas escorted off Lelu Island


– WCNativeNews on September 29th, 2015 4:08 am
Five surveyors conducting unauthorized work for Petronas on Lelu Island were stopped and escorted offUnauthorized workers escorted off Flora Banks.

The Lax U’u’la Warriors are of all Nations, Tsimshian, Nisga’a, Haida, and non indigenous. After they hiked across Flora banks at low tide, and made it back to their skiffs, they interrupted the Stop Pacific NorthWest LNG - Petronas on Lelu IslandDrill boat who commenced drilling on Flora Banks at approximately 840am.

They threatened the Lax U’u’la Warriors with arrest and RCMP, but the Tsimshians have inherit rights to to stop all drilling activity on Flora Banks if they want their Rights and Title over Lax U’u’la & Flora banks to be successful in the courts.

5 surveyors conducting unauthorized work for Petronas on Lelu Island were stopped and escorted off from idle no more on Vimeo.

So far Tsimshian villages have been only releasing press releases over the area, but do not come out to support. Today Lax Kwalams Fisheries stepped in to document, record, GPS their location of the drillers. Which is what hereditary leader Yahaan has been asking for, their own boats out there to observe them.

“Our Traditional ways of life and the resources which have sustained our people are not to be pawns in the Christie Clark Government’s LNG dreams. Development within our Traditional territories must have our Free, Prior and Informed consent. The people of Lax’walams spoke very clearly in their rejection of the 1.25 billion dollar offer from Petronas, and this camp builds upon that rejection. This issue is not just a First Nations issue but one that will affect all British Columbians, especially those who rely upon healthy and abundant Fish stocks, of a variety of species at the mouth of the Skeena River.
– Lax Kw’alaams Hereditary Chief Yahaan (Donald Wesley) 

The end goal is to stop the drillers, and to save Flora banks.

*port Simpson band office and the Lax Uula camp are both separate entities, and the Mayor Gary Reece does not speak for the camp. The Lax Uula warriors are all working together to protect the salmon habitat. Prince Rupert has 3 proposed LNG facilities, all have the potential to collapse the salmon run up the Skeena and the Nass River.

How did we get to this point? 

Via – laxuula.com

What is the plan for the LNG plant?

A consortium led by Petronas is planning to build an $11 Billion dollar liquified natural gas (LNG) plant on our traditional Lax Kw’alaams territory Lax U’u’la (Lelu Island) at the mouth of the Skeena river near Prince Rupert, BC. The marine section consists of a 1.6 km bridge that would extend over part of Flora Bank, followed by a 1.3 km trestle with pilings alongside Flora Bank to a tanker berth, requiring hundreds of piles deep into soft sediment. A 48″ diameter submarine pipeline would be dredged into estuary sediment for 9.4 km toward the southwest corner of the island to supply fracked gas from Treaty 8 territory in NE BC.

Our fish are worth more than money.

The shallow eelgrass beds of Flora Bank directly southwest of Lax U’u’la are the most important juvenile fish habitat in the entire Skeena river system for salmon, steelhead, and numerous other species of seafood. Out-migrating smolts use Flora and Agnew Banks in the spring to undergo the physiological changes required to adjust from fresh to salt water, to feed, and to hide from predators. Upon leaving the river, smolts instinctively turn north and travel through Inverness Passage to Flora Bank, and then continue to Alaska. 88% of all migrating salmon from the Skeena river, or 330 Million every year, rely on Flora Bank. 10 Nations and 60 000 people in the Skeena watershed rely on these fish for food, commercial fishing, and cultural identity. Eelgrass is highly sensitive to light levels, and juvenile fish are incredibly sensitive to noise. The silt sediments that make up Flora and Agnew Banks are in a balance of constant erosion and deposition, and changes to the complex tidal and river flows that govern this process due to the proposed bridge supports, pilings, and pipeline dredging could sink or render Flora Bank dry.  Click here to learn more about Flora Banks and their importance to wild salmon.

We voted 100% NO to the project.

Without any warning, in early May 2015, Petronas offered Lax Kw’alaams $1.25 Billion dollars to allow them to build their plant on our Lax U’u’la territory. This offer took our small community by surprise. In three rounds of voting, our community voted 100% unanimously NO to this offer, as the risk to salmon in Flora Bank is not something that can be bought. We stated clearly that Flora Banks is off-limits to industrial development.

The government and industry ignored us.

After the vote, the BC government and Petronas have acted as if the vote did not happen. Without changing their plant design, Petronas gave their conditional Final Investment Decision on June 11, 2015 for the project, making it the first LNG project in BC to get to final investment. On July 13, 2015, BC passed the LNG Project Agreements Act to allow Petronas to build on Lax U’u’la, and also locking in an incredibly low corporate LNG tax rate (3.5%) for 25 years that is only collectable after full capital cost payback, a hefty tax break.

In lat August 2015, we heard rumours that Petronas would be conducting test drilling near Lax U’u’la and on Flora Bank.

At this point, we had enough.

So we are now occupying our territory Lax U’u’la.

On Aug.25, 2015, Sm’yooget Yahaan (Donald Wesley) and other Tsimshian members set up camp on Lax U’u’la. Despite clear direction from our nation to stay away from Flora Bank, contractor companies under the direction of the Prince Rupert Port Authority began test drilling near Lax U’u’la on Sept.11. They were turned away on multiple occasions over the following days, including when workers were caught walking on Flora Bank at low tide.

Multiple nations and many people, native and non-native, are getting behind us on this cause, including the Nine Allied Tribes of the Lax Kw’alaams, who announced Title litigation to Lax U’u’la on Sept. 16, 2015.

We are standing with Madii Lii campAt camp on Lax U'u'la with Gitxsan supporters.

We are also backed by the Gitxsan House group of Luutkudziiwus, who have been operating a camp on their traditional Madii Lii territory since Aug. 2014 to block construction of the proposed PRGT pipeline that would supply fracked gas to the PNW LNG plant. We are standing together with Madii Lii camp to stop the same project, and to save Skeena salmon. Click here to visit Madii Lii webpage.

We are also in support of the Unist’ot’en clan of the Wet’suwet’en who are protecting their traditional Yintah from proposed oil and gas projects.
We cannot trust Petronas.

Petronas is a Malaysian government-owned oil company that provides 45% of the national income of Malaysia, and is currently tied up in a financial scandal in their country. The president of the company, Najib Razak, who is also the Prime Minister of Malaysia, is accused of stealing $700 Million and covering up $11 Billion in debt. The company has a record of human rights abuses against indigenous people in Indonesia. On Sept. 10, 2015, a leaked safety audit from Petronas revealed that they had been operating offshore oilrigs in incredibly dangerous states of disrepair in the Indian Ocean up to 2013. Routine safety inspections were overdue by 20 years. Some equipment was deemed at risk of causing human death.

We cannot trust this company to build a safe LNG plant anywhere.

Congress quietly ends federal government’s ban on medical marijuana


Tucked deep inside the 1,603-page federal spending measure is a provision that effectively ends the federal government’s prohibition on medical marijuana and signals a major shift in drug policy.

The bill’s passage over the weekend marks the first time Congress has approved nationally significant legislation backed by legalization advocates. It brings almost to a close two decades of tension between the states and Washington over medical use of marijuana.

Under the provision, states where medical pot is legal would no longer need to worry about federal drug agents raiding retail operations. Agents would be prohibited from doing so.

NEWSLETTER: Get the day’s top headlines from Times Editor Davan Maharaj >>

The Obama administration has largely followed that rule since last year as a matter of policy. But the measure approved as part of the spending bill, which President Obama plans to sign this week, will codify it as a matter of law.

Pot advocates had lobbied Congress to embrace the administration’s policy, which they warned was vulnerable to revision under a less tolerant future administration.

More important, from the standpoint of activists, Congress’ action marked the emergence of a new alliance in marijuana politics: Republicans are taking a prominent role in backing states’ right to allow use of a drug the federal government still officially classifies as more dangerous than cocaine.

“This is a victory for so many,” said the measure’s coauthor, Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher of Costa Mesa. The measure’s approval, he said, represents “the first time in decades that the federal government has curtailed its oppressive prohibition of marijuana.”

In5D Radio – Corey Goode – Inside The Sphere Being Alliance


Ed. Note: I HIGHLY recommend subscribing to Gaiam TV’s “Cosmic Disclosure” series at www.BlueAvians.com. where you can watch Episodes 1, 2 and 5 free. It’s available on a trial basis for only 99cents the first month, then $9.99 thereafter. So far I can honestly say I’ve THOROUGHLY enjoyed the series which is up to 12 episodes, and can recommend it as a program which offers a “Higher Frequency” of information – for myself, the higher vibration of the program is definitely palpable and watching it after viewing material of a lower vibration, it had a calming, smoothing effect on my energy field.

IMO Corey effectively addresses his critics and discusses a wide variety of “Cosmic and Esoteric” subject matter we’ve haven’t heard from any whisltleblower, including Simon Parkes who appears to be leaning more and more toward a GURU as time progresses.

On that note, I personally do not encourage people to participate in any group meditation because it can invite entity attachment and/or interference into your field, which apparently happened to quite a few people during Simon’s CERN group meditation. What concerns me most, is as a self-proclaimed psychic healer, Simon is most certainly aware of the hazards of group meditation, why he’s leading people down this path is another conversation all together. This fact, along with emerging discrepancies in his “narrative” and recent omissions on geopolitical facts(for instance, he never mentions the Jesuit’s influence in geopolitics); are reasons why I’m pulling my energy back from Simon’s material at this time. If I post something from Parkes, it’s simply to observe and take note of what’s he’s doing, but is not necessarily in support of his work.

As time has progressed, I’ve come to like Corey’s honest, humble nature and honestly feel he is coming from truth. I can also attest to the authenticity and Divine nature of the Blue Avians. Because, it’s recently come to my conscious awareness the BA’s have been working with me in dreamtime, and are just now making their presence known as the blue orbs I’ve been seeing in my field for the past couple of years.

In addition, since the summer of 2012 I’ve been aware that my soul comes from a Avian-Human species that resides in a “crystalline” type universe. With the help of Corey’s narrative in the Cosmic Disclosure series, I’ve been able to put the pieces together and make a formal connection with the BA’s. Currently, the only thing I have to share is that they’re helping me assimilate the incoming waves of energy and guiding me into a “fine tuning” process in healing from the all the stress from negative living situations and in losing my companion Diamond Dove last May. As well in assisting me moving from standing at the Threshold of the Underworld, toward fully walking my path as a burgeoning Shaman/Oracle Soul and FULLY connecting with the sentience of our Earth Mother.

After much speculation before watching the Cosmic Disclosure series, I can now fully endorse Corey’s work and encourage everyone to take a closer look at the CD series. In addition to Corey and David’s work, the subscription gives you access to the GAIAM TV archives which offers a wide variety of higher vibrational materials for your growth and enjoyment.

All my love,

Annette

Selling Off Apache Holy Land


Credit Maëlle Doliveux

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.

Vaccine bill could be a trend setter


Controversial legislation faces legal challenge if the governor signs

California has always had a reputation as a trend-setter, and the state’s recently passed vaccination bill has national bellwether potential — but only if it can survive the governor’s scrutiny and an almost certain legal challenge.

On Thursday, the Assembly approved Senate Bill 277, which would do away with “personal belief” and religious exemptions from vaccination. The legislation would prevent children from attending public schools if they have not received the full schedule of 10 vaccinations, from diphtheria to varicella.

The bill is expected to land on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk soon, and if he signs it, then California will be one of only three states in the nation to grant vaccine exemptions only if a licensed doctor certifies that a child has a valid medical condition or family history of illness that makes inoculation unsafe.

According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, only two states, Mississippi and West Virginia, currently ban religious or personal-belief exemptions. While religious waivers for immunization are nearly universal in the U.S., 32 states have already eliminated personal-belief exemptions.

California’s measure arrives after the state saw 136 measles cases spring up during an outbreak this winter that started at Disneyland in Anaheim. The measles resurgence led lawmakers in a dozen states to consider modifying their exemption laws. But none has attempted changes as broad as California’s, said Christine Goodwin, a program manager at the National Conference of State Legislatures.

“In 2015, and in recent years, it seems that more states are considering more narrow changes to their exemption policies, rather than repealing them all together,” Goodwin said.

Earlier this year legislators in Oregon and Washington tabled proposals to repeal personal belief exemptions. Vermont successfully eliminated the option, but kept its religious exemption in place.

If successful, said several legal experts, California’s SB 277 could end up becoming the test case for the nation.

“When you have an influential state adopt a novel resolution and the legal structure is not well-defined you have the opportunity for a lot of uncertainty and a lot of impact,” said Glenn Smith, a professor of constitutional law at California Western School of Law.

Lawrence Gostin, director of the O’Neill Institute for National and Global Health Law at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., said that California would definitely be a bellwether if its vaccine bill becomes law.

“Just as California led the way with climate change, it could lead the way with public health. If a state as large and influential as California were to signal the crucial importance of childhood vaccines, other states would surely take notice,” Gostin said.

But there are some big caveats included in all statements of precedent setting.

SB 277 has become quite controversial, drawing hundreds of protesters to Sacramento in recent weeks as the legislation was debated, and eventually approved, by both the state Senate and the Assembly.

Simon Black – Greeks are standing in line with garbage bags at ATMs


Reblogged from FollowingWorldChange

iman-mysxizyznlvakvjsemphihgpojhdjvoa-v2

It is somewhat amusing that the word ‘crisis’ originates from Ancient Greece.

It’s actually a medical term; Hippocrates wrote extensively about ‘crisis’ being the key turning point in disease progression– the time at which it either overcomes the patient, or it subsides.

And though the word ‘crisis’ is thrown about routinely these days, it’s safe to say that Greece is now truly in crisis in the purest sense of the definition.

Same with the euro, for that matter.

A century from now when future historians write about our time, it’s highly likely they’ll conclude that the euro was the dumbest invention of this age.

And that will really be saying something because the competition is fierce: pet rocks. Acid-washed jeans. FATCA. Google Glass. Fox Business News. Obamacare.

But the euro deserves first prize in the ugly contest.

The idea was to take completely incompatible economies, pretend that they were all Germany, and put them under one monetary roof simply because they were on the same continent.

This is ridiculous, especially today. It’s 2015. Geography is an irrelevant anachronism.

Imagine jamming Argentina, Australia, Angola, and Azerbaijan into a currency union simply because they all start with the letter “A”. It’s just as pointless and arbitrary as geography.

And when one of them starts to collapse (probably Argentina), rather than admit their mistake and dissolve the whole stupid idea, the bureaucrats spend massive amounts of other people’s money fruitlessly trying to hold the project together.

This is what’s happened in Europe.

Every time they wrote a bailout check or extended another loan package to Greece, all the bureaucrats did was INCREASE their risk exposure.

It’s like running back into a burning building– literally the *exact opposite* of what any sensible person would do.

Eurocrats have spent untold billions of other people’s money to save face, just so they wouldn’t have to admit that Project “Make Everyone Germany” has failed.

But what they never acknowledged was that no matter how much they extend and pretend, the disease will always reach its crisis.

And this financial disease is going to slay the patient. History is very clear on this point: debt kills.

Greece long ago reached the point of no return where they were borrowing money just to pay interest. Now it’s time for brutal honesty: game over.

The best example of brutal honesty is across the pond in Puerto Rico– America’s Greece. The governor of Puerto Rico, Alejandro Garcia Padilla, did not mince words when he described the island’s prodigious debt:

“The debt is not payable. There is no other option. I would love to have an easier option. This is not politics, this is math.”

The lesson is pretty clear: a bad system will fail. Especially when that system is built on a mountain of debt and deceit.

It might take years, but it happens. Just look at Greece; it’s taken nearly six years from when it was first identified to reach today’s crisis.

The time in between can either be an opportunity or a curse.

For some, time is an opportunity to take action– to quietly take defensive steps like moving money abroad.

Greeks had the opportunity to do that long ago when the euro was strong and the capital controls didn’t exist.

But for most people, time is a reason to procrastinate. They think that because it didn’t collapse today, tomorrow will be just fine. So they stick their heads in the sand. Or somewhere else.

And now those people are standing in line at ATM machines across Greece with empty garbage bags trying to figure out how to survive against strict capital controls.

Don’t wait.

Until tomorrow,

Mission to Mars: Disinformation to Hide Secret Mining of Red Planet


Note: If the claims below are true, they indicate the team at Exopolitics conducts due diligence in vetting and questioning the narrative of “alleged” whistleblowers and outing those who appear to be operatives. It also speaks volumes on psyops and disinformation campaigns being launched aimed at obfuscating the truth about existing mining operations on the Mars colony, the Secret Space Program and anti-gravity technology.

With story’s like this coming out, better keep the non-gmo popcorn well stocked, discernment as a guide and the magical thinking caps on. Also, word is circulating our planet’s about to get wholloped with a blast of photonic energy, if this is true – and most of us have felt a “game changer” coming for awhile now – then things are about to get real interesting on the planetary playing field.

Once again, too see images of the cosmic cloud permeating the inner planets and an in-depth discussion on cosmic weather affecting the planet, see both TU Deft Univ. presentations at www.SusanRennison.com. They really changed my perspective on the serious nature of Earth changes at hand, the physic behind the inevitable collapse of the matrix as the Earth increases in vibration and frequency and much more.

Mining on Mars

‘Chad Johnson’ claims to have spent nearly three days on Mars after a nearly eight month journey there and a similar time for the return trip. He says he flew as part of a crew of three U.S. astronauts on a secret Russian and Chinese funded private venture launched out of a remote Chinese region of the Gobi desert. The purpose was to collect rock samples to evaluate the potential for profitable mining operations for future Mars missions.

Johnson came to public attention after he posted the following twitter message in early 2012:

I was part of a team of 3 astronauts that went to Mars on a privately funded secret mission, 2 are now dead, they’re killing us to preserve the secret.

Intrigued by his message, Morgan Kochel contacted Johnson and conducted an interview using Twitter direct messaging system that was published sometime in February 2012 . Johnson claimed that he was on the run to avoid a similar fate to his two fellow crew members and had to communicate by Twitter for security reasons. He told Kochel that “Chad Johnson” was a pseudonym to protect himself and his family.

Kochel’s interview reveals an intriguing story. Close analysis of key elements in Johnson’s alleged Mars mission raises some troubling questions about whether his claims are genuine, fabricated or a mixture of both. Rather than being a genuine whistleblower revealing the truth about a secret mission to Mars, he may in fact be a covert operative attempting to deceive the public about what is really happening on Mars. To get an answer, we need to explore Johnson’s main claims and see whether these stand up to close scrutiny.

Johnson’s main claim is that the trip to Mars lasted a total of roughly 460 days using conventional rocket engines:

Training lasted twelve months, very intense, including psychiatric tests. It took us about 230 days to get there, and slightly less back. We used rocket technology regularly available now. Just bigger tanks and more thrust. Nothing unusual in equipment to get there, but better radiation protection, as you can imagine, due to journey time:

As to how much time he spent on Mars surface, Johnson said:

We were on the surface for about 65 hours, enough time to gather samples and collate gas makeup readings of the atmosphere, and to explore a little bit. Radiation was always going to be an issue, so we had strict allocations of surface time, then we had to return.

Problem is that any trip to Mars using conventional rockets would require at least a three month stay, not less than three days (65 hours) there due to the orbits of Mars and Earth as the following NASA website and diagram makes clear:

Just like you have to wait for Earth and Mars to be in the proper position before you head to Mars, you also have to make sure that they are in the proper position before you head home. That means you will have to spend 3-4 months at Mars before you can begin your return trip. All in all, your trip to Mars would take about 21 months: 9 months to get there, 3 months there, and 9 months to get back. With our current rocket technology, there is no way around this.

marstravel

With the conventional rocket technologies used by national space programs, it would be impossible for a Mars mission to spend less than three days on the surface before returning as Johnson claims.

Another troubling issue raised by Johnson’s story is the claim that the Russian and Chinese funders used American astronauts:

‘Winged Disc’ Visible on Google Sky?


Note:  This story was originally sourced from Intellihub, which has a tendency toward fear mongering and disseminating soft-disinfo. The fact that these images are coming from Intellihub puts them in a somewhat questionable light. As always, discretion is advised….

As our attention shifts to the Cosmic Stage, more and more spectacles appear to titilate our imaginations.

While I don’t put much stock in many biblical prophecies, some are shared by multiple native peoples in their ancient lore that lend themselves to the unfolding of our story today.

Take, for instance, the gigantic black triangle on the sun on a Mayan artifact, and a triangle on the sun in a crop circle.

Archeologists unearthed a disc in a pyramid in Mexico in 2011 that depicted the sun with what appears to be a black hole in the shape of an isosceles triangle, with space craft zooming out of it.

In March of 2012, NASA’s images of the sun revealed the identical image as the Mayan artifact and called it a coronal hole. Can that be coincidence? Some say it was a hoax, but I didn’t get that feeling as there is sound evidence of other coronal holes before this and astronomers say this image was visible for about three days.

And now we are seeing the “winged planet” out in space as illustrated centuries ago in well-known artifacts. Is it a planet? Or does it appear to be a planet because a planet is something we recognize?

Some things simply cannot be explained unless we have faith in prophecies to some degree—however it is that they function. Sometimes we just have to chalk it up to magical synchronicities.

There is a massive amount of disinformation, misinformation and fear mongering on the Internet and many will put a negative spin on these events and apply misnomers, and that’s okay. They can believe whatever they like.

Rather than label these anomalies as harbingers of evil and catatrophic events, I believe that everything is unfolding for our benefit—as promised in many cultures across the world.

Our Golden Age is just beyond the threshold. It’s winking and beckoning with these exciting opening acts that only hint of the delights to come.

We are witness to astonishing, never-before-seen anomalies in our skies on an almost daily basis now—be it UFOs, unique auroras, out-of-place sun and other celestial bodies, sundogs, halos, rainbow-coloured clouds, beams of light… and no telling what will appear next. I’m thinking this is the ‘new normal’.

We’re on a positive timeline now. I think it’s undeniable that “something” has changed in our galaxy, and IS changing, and we have front row seats to the most incredible show on Earth; the one foretold for millennia. It’s almost within our grasp, and I wouldn’t miss it for anything.

As the lights dim in this cosmic theatre, polish up your opera glasses and be prepared to be wowed as the entire cosmos comes alive for our advancement and upliftment, transmuting fear into joy and awe.

As the Pleiadians told one of their earthly emissaries, “Don’t be afraid. Enjoy the journey.” Many of us reading here now are doing just that, while most of the world is still groggy from their life-long hypnotic trance. One day soon they will need moral support, and we will be there. Are you ready?  ~ BP


 

Controversial, heavily censored, planetary system just revealed to public for first time

By Shepard Ambellas

OUTER SPACE (INTELLIHUB) — For years it has been speculated by conspiracy theorists and some astronomers that Google Sky had been censoring what’s known as Planet X or Nibiru from the general public’s view online.

Now, shockingly, a massive swath of Google Sky that had been previously blacked out and censored has been made visible by Google for your viewing pleasure. The image below shows the system as censored by Google for years.

As of now it’s currently unknown why Google unrestricted access to the planetary system which was the focus of the late Zecharia Sitchin who wrote numerous publications on the planet Nibiru.

In the image below, shot in 2015, you can clearly see the winged disk as described by Sitchin and others. It’s almost uncanny.

The system is currently located at:

5 h 42m 21.0s 22° 36′ 45.7″

Although we can’t say for sure that this is Nibiru, it sure does match all descriptions.

To learn more read Planet X for dummies.

Do you believe that Planet X exists?

You can’t rent a one-bedroom apartment anywhere in America on a minimum-wage job


Hours needed at minimum wage to afford a one-bedroom apartment (National Low-Income Housing Coalition)

Hours needed at minimum wage to afford a one-bedroom apartment (National Low-Income Housing Coalition)

A new report by the National Low-Income Housing Coalition shows that there is no state in the U.S. where a full-time, minimum-wage worker can afford the rent of a one-bedroom apartment, Vox reports.

According to the report, the national average Housing Wage in 2015 is $19.35 for a two-bedroom unit, and $15.50 for a one-bedroom unit, while the federal minimum wage remains at $7.25 per hour in 2015, which hasn’t been raised since 2009. In 13 states and D.C., Housing Wage is more than $20 per hour. The Housing Wage is an estimate of the full-time hourly wage that a household must earn to afford a decent apartment at HUD’s estimated Fair Market Rent (FMR) for no more than 30% of their income.

The data from the report show a gap between wages and rents across the country. In no state or D.C. can a full-time minimum-wage earning worker at the federal minimum wage afford a one- or two-bedroom apartment for his or her family. With the exception of just a few counties in Washington and Oregon (where the state minimum wage is $9.47 and $9.25, respectively), in no county in the U.S. a one-bedroom unit at the FMR is affordable to someone working 40 hours a week at the minimum wage, according to the report.

A map included in the report shows the hours a worker would have to work each week to afford a one-bedroom apartment. Among the states where a worker has to work the most hours to afford housing are Hawaii (125), Maryland (101), DC (100), New Jersey (100) and California (92).

In some localities where the state and local minimum wages are higher than the federal minimum wage, the Housing Wages are also much higher than the minimum wages, according to the report. In San Francisco, California, for instance, the state and local minimum wages are $9.00 and $12.25, respectively, while the Housing Wages for a one- and a two-bedroom apartment are $31.44 and $39.65, respectively.

These data may help explain the findings of a Brookings Institution report. According to the report, an average resident of a U.S. metro area lives 90 minutes or less away from only 30 percent of the jobs in that area.

Living far away from jobs, in turn, can impede residents’ ability to earn more, Vox’s Joseph Stromberg points out. A recent study which tracked 5 million children starting in the 1980’s found that among factors such as crime rates, schools, and levels of inequality, a neighborhood’s average commuting time strongly correlated with its residents’ ability to ascend to a higher income bracket than their parents.

Michael Tellinger and Hope Girl ~ UBUNTU Contributionism and Free Energy


FTW Michael Tellinger Show Logo

UBUNTU is working! This is what ten years of philosophy and six months of physical labor look like when a real solution births its way into our physical world!

UBUNTU Contributionism is a model for a new social structure and global movement founded by scientist, explorer, and internationally acclaimed author Michael Tellinger.  Earlier this year, after six months of back breaking work, the first UBUNTU model community became  a reality in Michael’s small home town of Waterval Boven South Africa.  A vandalized building abandoned by the government has been reclaimed and renovated by the people of the town to become the Community Town Hall.  The new space will be utilized for a wide array of needed purposes including a movie theatre, school, community gym, and meal hall. The accomplishment of this feat acts as a real kick off to the many projects that will continuously develop as a living breathing model for the first operating UBUNTU community.

This interview is very near and dear to my heart. I learned about Michael and his amazing work a few years ago, and his research played a huge role both in my awakening process out of corporate America, and in the formation of the Fix the World Organization.  Fix the World and UBUNTU Contributionism share a lot of parallels in our foundational philosophy. Michael’s work has always been a huge inspiration to me personally, and in many ways has set a real example for all of us.

In this interview, I have a chance to speak with Michael about two topics that I am very passionate about; community and free energy.  Michael has completed the first portion of hard work in getting their community hall up and operating.  We compare notes on both of our experiences and reveal what it’s really like to run projects like this. We also touch on the world of alternative/free energy, and Michael presents an incredible solution that shows how free energy can unite a community instead of divide a community.

WATCH THE INTERVIEW HERE ON FIX THE WORLD TV:

Highlights from the Interview:

Working with Volunteers
While there were some amazing volunteers that came from all over the world and helped in a big way, there were also a lot of volunteers that came and caused a lot of damage.  Managing volunteers is a full time job and many lessons were learned on how to improve the experience in the future. This involves doing a lot of foundational work to get the projects started, and then having an organized set of specific tasks for volunteers to do with a designated volunteer coordinator to help manage the people.

Michael speaks about how opening up your project  to volunteers also opens you, your home and your life to infiltrators that come in under the guise of “volunteers” and who are there solely to undermine your project.  This is a common problem in this type of work, and we at FTW have had the same types of experiences.  Valuable lessons about this topic are shared in this interview for the many groups that are undertaking similar projects.

Alternative Energy
Michael like many others has been following the QEG project and we were able to give him a private demonstration of our QEG over skype.  This sparked a conversation about the experiences that Michael has had in the “free energy world” working with many inventors and taking part in various conferences around the globe.   In this interview, I asked how UBUNTU Contributionism would apply to building a free or alternative energy device.  Michael then laid out an amazing philosophy:

“This is where my philosophy and the current UBUNTU Contributionism philosophy on alternative energy devices is very different from most other people.

I oppose the creation of a small energy device that can be used by people in their individual homes. That is not my intention. I have come to the conclusion that the global collective consciousness is not ready to embrace that. It might sound really arrogant to people, but let me explain why I say that.

If tomorrow, some factory started manufacturing a 20 KW machine that anyone could buy off the shelf, you’ve got a serious problem. Because you clearly aren’t going to sell it cheap, so those that can afford it will buy it, and they’ll be ok in their own home. While the people that can’t afford it will be even poorer and there will be a bigger gap between the “haves” and the “have-nots”.  This is not a solution.

I am a strong proponent of a different approach. I believe that we need to create an energy device that is owned by the community. Whether it’s a bunch of smaller devices strung together, or one big device that runs a megawatt or more. This device should belong to the community so that everyone can get free electricity.

The community works together to collectively put the funds together to install that technology. Whether it’s something put into the river, or new exotic technology, or the QEG… whatever it is that the people can get their free electricity from.

This is what we are now promoting through our election campaigns for next years’ local municipal elections. We are promoting the fact that we are going to give our four towns free electricity, not by weird fancy technology, but by simply putting hydro turbines into the rivers in each and every town. And then we the people pay to install it, we run it and manage it, and it’s our electricity. Everybody gets free electricity, everybody benefits equally. In return for that free electricity, everybody has to contribute their three hours a week towards one of the community projects.

So you use the electricity to unite the people and not to divide the people. Now you are creating a community of abundance beyond your wildest imagination.   Everyone is happy, they have free electricity, and they can do things they couldn’t do before. They don’t have to be cold in winter and hot in summer. They can cook, they can read and study at night, they can do what they want and they love you for this.  They feel like they are part of the community because they are no longer marginalized and everyone is equal on that front.

And now you also have a labor force from the people that benefit from that electricity. In our town that would be about 3,000 people. So suddenly you’ve got 9,000 hours of labor a week. Just do the math. The amount of stuff you will create for your community is unimaginable! More food than we can eat, more clean water, more clothing, more wooden products, more metal things that we need. The roads will be clean, the parks will be spectacular. Not only that, then the money that comes in from the community projects belongs to the community. And everything that you create in those community projects, the food the bread etc., is free to everyone that participates.

So what this electricity device does, it really becomes the foundation in a society of people that can live virtually for free.”

(For those following the QEG project, FTW has been working towards implementing a similar philosophy through our Cottage Industry Community Units model, working with the local people in our community, and supporting communities that are crowdfunding to build a community QEG.)

UBUNTU For Local Elections:

UBUNTU  contested in the national elections in South Africa in 2014, in the UK elections in May of 2015 and is planting the seeds to contest in the local elections  in South Africa and also in Canada in 2016.

UBUNTU has a very good chance of winning the local elections in their municipality. This is a critical milestone that once reached can become a domino effect to influence other communities to apply UBUNTU principles and change our world for the better.   You can support the movement by visiting their site and subscribing with a monthly donation amount to help fund their efforts.  http://www.UBUNTUparty.org.za/

 

About UBUNTU:

The principles of UBUNTU Contributionism are outlined by its founder, Michael Tellinger, in dozens of documents, video and audio recordings and the book entitled UBUNTU Contributionism – A Blueprint For Human Prosperity, which has now become the founding document for the UBUNTU Movement globally. Anyone that has not read the book cannot claim to represent, or speak on behalf of, or claim to know the principles of Contributionism. While the circumstances of every community are unique, the foundation of Contributionism remains the same. We are moving to a world without money, barter or trade of any kind – where everyone’s contributions are respected equally and where everyone is given the freedom to contribute their natural talents or acquired skills for the greatest benefit of all in their community. We are developing a society where people work together in cooperation, rather than in competition against each other.

We are not creating self-sustained communities – we are creating much more – we are creating communities of abundance – where everyone has everything they need beyond our wildest imagination.
