Crystal Geyser’s New Bottled Water Plant To Open At Foot Of Mount Shasta

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) – A new Crystal Geyser Water Co. plant opening at the foot of Mount Shasta is adding to criticism of companies that are bottling water in California’s drought.

Crystal Geyser plans to eventually tap up to 365,000 gallons a day from groundwater in Northern California’s Siskiyou County, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Sunday.

Converted from an old Coca-Cola bottling plant, the facility will become the latest of 108 bottling operations by various companies in the state, the Chronicle reported. Operations are due to start this fall.

Crystal Geyser executive vice president Judy Yee said Crystal Geyser officials are in contact with local residents to ensure its groundwater pumping “will not impact the environment in any detrimental way.”

Resident Raven Stevens, however, says she fears groundwater pumping by the bottled-water plant will use up the water that she and her neighbors depend on for their households.

“Crystal Geyser in one day plans to pump more water than any three of my neighbors will use in an entire year,” Stevens said.

California law in general places no limits on the amount of groundwater that property owners can pump, although legislation passed last year will start phasing in regulation of the most endangered aquifers after 2020.

Grass-roots objections to bottled water companies tapping and selling groundwater are increasing as California’s drought moves deeper into its fourth year. Bottled-water companies tapping into groundwater on their own property are exempted from the 25-percent mandatory water cutbacks that Gov. Jerry Brown ordered for cities and towns earlier this spring.

“Bottling water is a legal use of water under the law,” said Nancy Vogel, spokeswoman of the California Department of Water Resources.

While local officials say the water bottling operation will bring jobs, some residents object to the heavy water use.

Joyce Kyle, 77, told the Los Angeles Times that she and her family have lost grazing business because local water authorities have restricted use of her property’s water.

In the drought, “everybody’s suffering, not just the people in the lower half of the state,” Kyle said. “Letting Crystal Geyser come in and draw down groundwater, it’s not right.”

Tyler Durden's picture

As if the discussions in Brussels and Athens were not mired in enough uncertainty, Bloomberg reports that a Greek official confirms:

  • *STORCHAK ASKED TSIPRAS FOR GREECE TO JOIN BRICS BANK: OFFICIAL

The pivot appears to continue. Reportedly, Tsipras was pleasntly surprised by the proposal.

As Bloomberg reports,

Russian Deputy Finance Minister Sergei Storchak spoke with Greek PM Alexis Tsipras today, proposed that Greece become 6th member of New Development Bank set up by Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa, a Greek govt official says in e-mail to reporters.

Tsipras said keen to discuss matter in St. Petersburg Economic Forum June 18-20, with leaders of BRICS countries.

Tsipras was pleasantly surprised by proposal.

Ed. Note: My favorite question over the last year for those still “asleep”, who get their news from non alternative sources, is: “Have you heard of BRICS?”. Not one person to date has said yes – and some of those people are highly intelligent and actually consider themselves well informed on economic matters. Yet, they’re clueless that a new gold backed financial system is currently being erected from the Eastern world and that the U.S. is being isolated because the rest of the world is fed-up with the cabal’s banking cartels, taxation, usury and being bullied by the US military.

You gotta hand it the cabal, they’re Masters at the game of deception. The fact that the propaganda media has kept BRICS completely out of the news is quite a feat, and one that is clearly reveals most people in the U.S. are about to get the rug quickly pulled out from under their feet. They’re completely unprepared for what’s coming in this game of smoke and mirrors….

On Graduation Day… One Student “Gets It” ~ ZeroHedge

With the class of 2015 graduating with a record amount of debt, one hopeful student appears to recognize her fate all too well…

Dear Class of 2015,

Because we recognize your plight, allow us to provide you with a bit of friendly advice as it realtes to your student loans. Once you are uncerimoniously thrown from your dorm into the less-than robust US jobs market, you will likely discover that contrary to what you were told in your economics courses, the US economy is but a shadow of its former self. Because you probably didn’t study to become a petroleum engineer, you will likely find your student debt burden to be quite onerous. The key to having it discharged is to make just enough money to stay clear of bankruptcy, but not enough to really survive above the poverty line. This is because it’s hard to have student debt discharged in the event you go completely broke. However, if your discretionary income is so small as to render you incapable of making payments, the government will start you on a program whereby a monthly payment of zero dollars counts towards the 300 “payments” you need to make to have your debt forgiven. Toe this line carefully (i.e. don’t slip up and start making too much discretionary income) and the entirety of your student debt will be forgiven in 25 short years without your ever having to pay a dime.

You’re welcome,

Zero Hedge

A Multinational Trojan Horse: The Trans-Pacific Partnership ~ ZeroHedge


Link submitted by Andre Hodge
By Tyler Durden on 05/09/2015

Submitted by Dave Pruett via Like The Dew blog,

“The accumulation of all powers, legislative, executive, and judiciary, in the same hands, … may justly be pronounced the very definition of tyranny.” – James Madison in The Federalist Papers.
You don’t have to know much about the “trade” deal called the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to be more than a little suspicious.

First, there are the very peculiar bedfellows. Supporting the TPP are President Obama and most Congressional Republicans, the same Republicans who’ve vehemently opposed his every initiative for the past six and one-half years.

Against the TPP are most (but not all) Congressional Democrats, Ford Motor Company, virtually all trade unions and environmental groups, watchdog groups such as Public Citizen, and usual Obama allies such as Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Ohio Senator Sherrod Brown, who, in a testy open letter to the President on April 25, called for greater transparency on the TPP.

Furthermore, when asked to lend his support for so-called “Fast Track” authority for the TPP, Obama water-carrier and former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid chafed, “So the answer is not only no, but hell no.”

Also opposed: liberal icon Noam Chomsky, Democratic presidential hopeful Bernie Sanders, Republican hopeful Mike Huckabee, many Tea-Party groups, and conservative Republican editorialist and former presidential candidate Patrick Buchanan. Conspicuous by silence: Hillary Rodham Clinton.

What’s going on here? Why the strange alliances?

Peel back the layers of the TPP and you’ll find what some believe to be a “corporate Trojan horse.” Disguised as “free trade,” the TPP’s provisions and tactics undermine Constitutional safeguards and national sovereignty. But there’s also a silver lining. The TPP exposes who, in the marbled halls of political power, is working for whom. It forces politicians to put their cards on the table, and by their hands you will know them.

In a recent interview, Chomsky called each word false in the euphemism “free trade agreement.” There’s nothing “free” about it. With nearly 30 chapters, only a half-dozen or so about international commerce, it’s not really primarily about “trade.” And, having been conducted in secret, shielded from the watchful eyes of the public and their congressional representatives, it’s hardly a broad “agreement.”

Every citizen has an obligation to find out what’s in this “deal.” That’s difficult, because the Obama administration has decided to treat TPP documents as classified. Indeed, we know the outlines of the TPP only because of leaks.

For a quick primer on what is known, start with former Labor Secretary Robert Reich’s two-minute video. Follow with Pat Buchanan’s op-ed “Obama’s Republican Collaborators.” And finish with Amy Goodman’s 13-minute interview on Democracy Now! with Public Citizen’s Lori Wallach.

If you still haven’t made up your mind, read the chilling “The Trans-Pacific Partnership and the Death of the Republic” by Ellen Brown of the Public Banking Institute. Is it all hyperbole, or could things be as ominous as they seem?

The TPP, which involves 12 nations and 40% of the earth’s trade, has been called “NAFTA on steroids.” (NAFTA, recall, was the North Atlantic Free Trade Agreement of 1993 negotiated during the Clinton Presidency). Every such agreement has been sold to the public by the promise that free trade floats all boats. What’s the reality? According to Buchanan, “… almost all [the big trade agreements] have led to soaring trade deficits and jobs lost to the nations with whom we signed the agreements.” Over the past four decades of free trade, America, cites Buchanan, has lost 55,000 factories and 5-6 million manufacturing jobs, all while racking up $11 trillion dollars in trade deficits.

So, who, if anyone, benefits by so-called “free trade?” Only the multinational corporations set “free” to scour the earth for the hottest sweatshops and the cheapest labor. Free trade is a global race to the bottom.

Given the dismal track record of such deals, one would expect future agreements to be negotiated in the light of day by representatives of all stakeholders. So, who’s at the table crafting the TPP?

“The Administration’s 28 trade advisory committees on different aspects of the TPP have a combined 566 members, and 480 of those members, or 85%, are senior corporate executives or industry lobbyists,” the Warren-Brown letter asserts. “Many of the advisory committees — including those on chemicals and pharmaceuticals, textiles and clothing, and services and finance — are made up entirely of industry representatives.” Absent from that table are all congressional representatives.

In April, the Obama administration began the process of petitioning Congress for “Fast Track” authority on the TPP. Some believe that Fast Track (which originated with Richard Nixon) is executive usurpation of Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution: “The Congress shall have the power… to regulate commerce with foreign nations.” An end run around Congress, Fast Track minimizes oversight and public debate. It cedes negotiating authority to the executive branch and then binds Congress to an up or down vote, severely constrained by time and without adequate discussion or filibuster.

Where are the hair-on-fire Republicans incensed over the imperial presidency of Barack Obama? Firmly in Obama’s camp! The self-proclaimed party of the Constitution, the family, and God seems only too happy to sell out all three to its prime constituencies: Wall Street and K-Street. Buchanan admits the painful truth: “Fast Track is the GOP payoff to its bundlers and big donors.”

The most troubling aspect of the TPP, asserts Ellen Brown, is the Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) provision, which “first appeared in a bilateral trade agreement in 1959.” Brown continues:

According to The Economist, ISDS gives foreign firms a special right to apply to a secretive tribunal of highly paid corporate lawyers for compensation whenever the government passes a law … that [negatively impacts] corporate profits — such things as discouraging smoking, protecting the environment or preventing nuclear catastrophe.
Imagine a scenario in which the U.S., coming to its senses about climate change, imposes a revenue-neutral carbon fee on fossil energy. According to provisions of the TPP, a fossil-fuel company in a signatory nation could then sue the U.S. for lost profits, real or imagined.

The threat is not idle. In 2012, the U.S.’s Occidental Petroleum received an ISDS settlement of $2.3 billion from the government of Ecuador because of that country’s apparently legal termination of an oil-concession contract. Currently, the Swedish nuclear-power utility Vattenfall is suing the German government for $4.7 billion in compensation, following Germany’s phase-out of nuclear plants in the wake of Japan’s Fukushima disaster.

The ISDS provisions of the TPP are insidious: the means by which signatory nations voluntarily surrender national sovereignty to the authority of corporate tribunals, without appeal, and apparently without exit provisions. No wonder the negotiations are secret.

Packaged as a gift to the American people that will renew industry and make us more competitive, the Trans-Pacific Partnership is a Trojan horse. It’s a coup by multinational corporations who want global subservience to their agenda. Buyer beware. Citizens beware.

GoodETxSG Part II Secret Space Program, ET Federation Delegation & MILAB Participant 1


This “Interview” was done on Skype between Christine (Avalon Moderator at the time) and myself. We were getting horrible line noise and were disconnected several times. A friend in the Music Business used his Professional Skills and Tools to edit and clean up the Audio File as much as possible. Bill Ryan had made an “Executive Decision” to EDIT OUT much of this information about “Entity Attachments” and me using the name of “Jesus” to rid myself of them because them highly went against his own “Belief System”. He also did not like that I mentioned the work of David Wilcock several times (Who he has a problem with in private but calls a friend in public on his Forum). He highly objected to this audio being edited and released. He did finally send an email stating that this is our voices (Christine and myself) and we could do with it what we desired. So apologies for the audio quality and the abrupt ending in advance. We felt that this information was captured for a reason and does complete the Part1 Interview that was so heavily “Edited” of content. Below is the video description Christine Wrote:

Former Project Avalon forum member, GoodETxSG speaks with Christine in this second interview recorded via Skype on November 23rd 2014. It is important to note that recalling memories is the process that all people use to view past events, in no way is this meant to indicate that the memories are not real.

With the publication of the first audio which came about when GoodET was able to vocalize his memories for the first time. The recording was made during a private recall session between Christine and GoodET in his home, previous to this moment he had been experiencing memory recall however had not been able to speak about these experiences.

The impact that the release of this video had was surprising and presented us with a difficult course to navigate. It had the effect of awakening in many others their own buried memories. GoodET and myself along with other moderators on the forum began receiving emails and private messages from those who wanted to tell their own stories. It became quickly apparent that while we worked effectively with our best intentions and heart felt compassion we also we not adequately prepared or had the proper format to provide the safety and expertise to lead so many through the potentially treacherous mind field of embedded triggers.

There is a deep story here and one that perhaps with time will be told in a coherent and truthful manner. Right now the layers are still peeling back, it is important for anyone involved and watching to maintain an open mind and heart.

We are still uncovering our long hidden memories that we know will lead us to our origins.

We extend the sincerest gratitude and honor to all Truth seekers whose courage and resilience has broken down some of the most difficult barriers in seeing our way through these dark games.

This is the original recording made of GoodETxSG when he was able to speak for the first time about his experiences. Originally he didn’t want this recording to be made public for reasons that will become obvious as you watch this extraordinary video.

GoodETxSG was abducted into service as a child and categorized as an intuitive empath, he has personal hands-on experience in military remote viewing, inter-dimensional portal travel, travel in advanced spacecraft, and attendance of large-scale meetings with ETs in which human representatives played only a minor role.

He has knowledge of the role of Artificial Intelligence, the threat posed by ET ‘trojan horse’ AI infiltration, what some of the small ‘Gray’ beings really are, and of past ‘Breakaway Civilizations’ that existed here before us, preceding the current one on Planet Earth.

This is a fascinating conversation, which was recorded when I, Christine visited him at his home in September/October 2014.

It’s really not so much an interview, but a very natural, informally flowing conversation, recorded in two parts separated by a week.
It wasn’t clear initially whether any of this would ever be made public.

But then my friend decided he wanted to go on record, and it became my pleasure and privilege to support him in this.

Robert Kennedy, Jr. is right about vaccines: A medically induced ‘holocaust’ is now upon us


Please share freely…mahalo!

vaccine

(NaturalNews) At a recent screening of the powerful new documentary film Trace Amounts, which exposes the scientific connection between mercury in vaccines and autism, Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. warned an audience of supportive viewers that vaccines are essentially poison vials causing a “holocaust” in our country.

The nephew of former U.S. president John F. Kennedy, RFK Jr. attended the screening in solidarity with California parents who are fighting to stop Senate Bill 277 from eliminating their freedom as Californians to exempt their children from “mandatory” vaccinations. Speaking to the crowd, Kennedy emphasized the proven dangers of vaccines.

“They can put anything they want in that vaccine and they have no accountability for it,” stated Kennedy about the vaccine industry, which ironically maintains its own exclusive and unconstitutional exemption from legal liability for vaccines that injure and kill children.

Trace Amounts helped kill anti-freedom vaccine exemption elimination bill in Oregon
Both entering and leaving the stage to exuberant standing ovations, Kennedy lauded Trace Amounts for helping persuade lawmakers in Oregon to scrap a bill similar to California’s SB 277 that would have eliminated personal vaccine exemptions in the Beaver State.

He also empathized with parents of vaccine-injured children, who often have no support from the legal system, and sometimes even from their friends and family members, in addressing the damage caused by vaccine quackery.

“They get the shot, that night they have a fever of a hundred and three, they go to sleep, and three months later their brain is gone,” lamented Kennedy about how vaccine injuries progress. “This is a holocaust, what this is doing to our country.”

Not a single invited politician shows up to Trace Amounts screening
California lawmakers were reportedly also invited to the Trace Amounts screening where Kennedy spoke, with three rows specially cordoned off for their convenient viewing. But according to The Sacramento Bee, not a single lawmaker showed up except for a handful of random staffers. No bother, though, as the film was still shown, and the crowd invigorated to take a unified stand for medical freedom.

89.3 KPCC is now reporting that the proposed legislation SB 277 would unconstitutionally deprive unvaccinated children from receiving an adequate education by preventing them from attending public school. Its supporters, however, are planning to reintroduce it once again in the coming days.

Vaccines are a scam, and the government’s revolving door with the vaccine industry proves it has no business trying to pass anti-exemption laws
As far as the idea of eliminating vaccine exemptions, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to realize that those trying to push anti-exemption legislation work for or are being paid off by the vaccine industry.

“The former head of the CDC, Julie Gerberding, is now the head of the Merck Vaccine Division,” wrote one commenter at The Sacramento Bee concerning this issue. “The government is having a dirty little affair with the drug industry.”

“They share ownership of patents. They created the unconstitutional ‘Vaccine Court’ that usurps our 7th Amendment and shields drug manufacturers from liability. The phony court has no judge, no jury and no justice for most people. They cherry pick cases to keep liability down and lie about the real number of vaccine injuries, yet they have still paid out about 3 billion dollars for the injuries they will admit to.”

Check out this vaccine debate that aired on PBS Hawaii, in which the show’s producers and hosts failed to mention its sponsorship from Merck, Pfizer and various other vaccine manufacturers:

Pennsylvania judge sentenced to 28 years in prison for selling teens to prisons


April 29, 2013

Disgraced Pennsylvania judge Mark Ciavarella Jr has been sentenced to 28 years in prison for conspiring with private prisons to sentence juvenile offenders to maximum sentences for bribes and kickbacks which totaled millions of dollars. He was also ordered to pay $1.2 million in restitution.

Guilty and going to prison for 28 years

abc.com

In the private prison industry the more time an inmate spends in a facility, the more of a profit is reaped from the state. Ciavearella was a figurehead in a conspiracy in the state of Pennsylvania which saw thousands of young men and women unjustly punished and penalized in the name of corporate profit.

According to allgov.com Ciavearella’s cases from 2003 – 2008 were reviewed by a special investigative panel and later by the Pennsylvania Supreme Court and it was found that upwards of 5,000 young men and women were denied their constitutional rights, and therefore all of their convictions were dismissed and were summarily released.

During his sentencing Ciavarella was defiant, claiming he had broken no laws and claimed the money he received was a legitimate ‘finder’s fee.’ Assistant U.S. Attorney Gordon Zubrod said comments such as these were typical of Ciavarella, according to the local reporting of citizensvoice.com:

I think that’s his way of doing things. Never retreat. Always go on the attack. Always blame somebody else. Always get them to back off. He tried it with the judge. It didn’t work.

California’s SB277 mandatory vaccination bill passes Senate committee after votes rigged, public testimony silenced


Note: Mandatory water restrictions looming ahead, Walmarts closing, Jade Helm and now mandatory vaccines imposed on the lower class? The writings on the wall California.

Just say NO to tyranny, en masse. Otherwise tacit consent is a forgone conclusion…

By Mike Adams | naturalnews.com

After California’s vaccine mandate bill SB277 was halted last week with an outcry of public outrage against it, the pro-vaccine mafia machine went to work. Democratic Sens. Ben Allen of Santa Monica and Richard Pan of Sacramento helped pursue a vote rigging agenda to replace seats on the committee with pro-vaccine industry sellouts. A new democrat, Sen. Bill Monning, was chosen to fill a vacant seat, and with his vote in favor of stripping Californians of vaccine exemption rights, SB277 was approved today.

The California Coalition for Health Choice branded the action as, “a rare act of outright rigging the results…” CCHC’s press release also explains, “Adding one vote in favor of the bill wasn’t enough. He also removed the Vice Chair of the committee, Senator Huff, an ardent opponent of the bill, and replaced him with Senator Runner.”

From the press release:

That bill should have died in committee last Wednesday. Instead of taking a vote and letting it die, the bill gets postponed for a week so the author can work on amendments. It’s currently scheduled as a “vote only item” Wednesday. That means no one in opposition will get to testify on whatever amendments the author proposes. How is that good government,” asked Sylvia Pimentel, State Director of the Canary Party, and member of the California Coalition for Health Choice (CCHC).


Arrogant California Senate silences the public, then forces toxic vaccines on them

“This time no public testimony was allowed,” reports the Sacramento Bee, confirming that the California Senate conspired to not just rig the vote, but also silence the public outrage so that Senate “representatives” didn’t have to hear their constituents’ testimony.

How’s that for transparency in California government? When the outcry of the public becomes too much to bear, just silence the public and vote against them!

As soon as this bill gets signed into law by Gov. Brown, it will deny public education to all children who are not vaccinated.

We already know vaccines can be extremely dangerous and cause permanent neurological damage to children. Just this week, it was revealed that the swine flu vaccine caused permanent brain damage in over 800 children across Europe. The UK government has agreed to pay $90 million in compensation to families of those children harmed by the vaccines.

Yet the California “sellout Senators” — almost all of whom received campaign finance donations from vaccine manufacturers — pushed this mandatory vaccine bill with the delusion that vaccines harm no children at all. After all, how could the government coerce you into injecting your own children with something that wasn’t absolutely, perfectly, 100% safe?

Vaccine class warfare targets California’s poor

The only allowed exemptions to the new vaccine mandate are for homeschooled children or those sent to private schools… children of wealthy families, in other words.

The poor who cannot afford homeschooling or private schools are now coerced into injecting their children with toxic substances that provably cause permanent harm. Hence the existence of the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program in America which admits “…it is presumed that the vaccine was the cause of the injury or condition” and lists anaphylactic shock, encephalopathy, disability, injury and even DEATH as among its list of injuries known to be caused by vaccines.

With the Senate committee passage of SB277 and the anticipated signature of this bill into law, the California government has now become an enemy of poor families, subjecting them to toxic vaccine interventions which wealthy families can pay to avoid.

This is especially important to note because of the work of CDC whistleblower Dr. William Thompson who previously blew the lid on the CDC’s fraudulent cover-up of links between vaccines and autism in black children.

It is black children who are especially susceptible to autism from vaccines, the research showed. And now, California is damning low-income families — which are disproportionately African-American — to exposing their young children to the very thing that may permanently harm them with autism or other neurological effects: vaccines.

California government wins the vaccine war but loses all public trust
The truth is now upon us: California is a state government that will, if given an opportunity, claim total ownership over your body and strip away your medical choice to coerce you into poisoning yourself and your children with Big Pharma’s toxic metals and additive chemicals.

This is not just a war on children, by the way, but also a war on women. Because it is pregnant women who are also susceptible to vaccine injuries affecting their unborn babies. To inject a pregnant woman with mercury, aluminum, MSG, formaldehyde or other toxic substances that are still used in vaccines today is an outright violation of medical ethics and possibly even a felony assault on her body if not administered with her consent.

California, then, has just declared war on the bodies of both women and children. The state is about to become, under law, an active medical police state.

This realization, combined with the state’s worsening drought, crushing taxes and rising medical police state, are bringing the following question to mind across millions of its current residents: Is it now time to abandon California and flee the state in search of water and freedom?

Two CIA Agents Arrested by Minutemen while Crossing Mexican Border with 1300 Pounds of Cocaine


Note: Caught crossing the borderline with their panties down to their ankles, you can bet the masterminds at the CIA have their knickers in a twist figuring out how to “spin” this story. This is absolutely hilarious, what a bunch of unwitting bozo’s!

The veils keep falling and they won’t be able to hide behind the propaganda media much longer because people are waking up everywhere…even in America. Give it guys and gals of the CIA/NSA, the jokes on you. While you’ve been distracted dealing drugs for the elite, your owners are preparing to leave you behind in their dust when “the system”  starts collapsing. Buh-bye!

Two CIA Agents Arrested by Minutemen while Crossing Mexican Border with 1300 Pounds of Cocaine

Controversy
54

El Paso| A group of minutemen watching the Mexican Border for illegal migrants and drug traffickers, have proceeded to the citizen arrest of two men in an SUV, carrying 1300 pounds of cocaine. The volunteers were completely astonished when the two arrestees pulled out CIA ID cards and explained they were actually carrying the drug as part of their duties and that the cargo belonged to the Central Intelligence Agency.

The incident took place last night, in the Chihuahuan desert, near the Texan city of El Paso. A group of seven minutemen saw a large black SUV drive rapidly across the border. They chased the vehicle in their own trucks and achieved to immobilize it after a chase of more than 15 miles.

The vigilantes arrested the two men on board and called the border patrol, who proceeded to search the vehicle. They discovered dozens of packages of cocaine, totalling an incredible 618.4 kilograms (1363 pounds).

minutemen2

The two men claim to be CIA operatives based in Mexico and explained that the drug was actually part of an operation of the agency. They presented identity cards that seem to validate their claim, but the CIA spokesperson, Dean Boyd, has officially denied any link between the organization and the two men.

“The CIA doesn’t take part in drug smuggling operations at the US-Mexican border” said M. Boyd. “I do not know, for now, if the men are actually affiliated to the agency in any way, but I can tell you the cocaine doesn’t belong to the CIA.”

Both the border patrol officers and minutemen seem unconvinced, however, and many of them seem to believe that the secret service agency is hiding something. The U.S. custom services have even announced a thorough investigation to try and verify the two men’s story.

“Both of them had valid accreditations and a receipt for their cargo” says Shawn Francis Miller, spokesman of the U.S. Customs and Border Protection for the El Paso sector. “What drug dealer in his right mind, demands a receipt for 1300 pounds of cocaine? There is really something strange about these guys, and we believe the CIA possibly knows more than what it is ready to admit.” 

minutemen3

The two men remain under the custody of the custom services at the moment, and are still being interrogated in a facility near El Paso. They are facing charges of possessing, trafficking and importing illegal drugs, and could face other criminal charges once the investigation is over.

Both the FBI and the DEA have announced that they would collaborate with the U.S. Customs and Border Protection on this case, which as already attracted a lot of attention in Southern Texas.

Lawmakers want FDA to crack down on soap makers


by simpleunhookedliving

Excerpts:

People who are trying to do good for their families and the planet by living a simple life based on traditional skills are facing yet another assault. Artisanal soap makers say new regulations, proposed by Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California) and Senator Susan Collins (R-Maine), will put them out of business.

The view of Sen. Feinstein and her corporate backers (listed below) is that the Personal Care Products Safety Act (Senate Bill S.1014) will make the world a safer place by scrutinizing “everything from shampoo and hair dye to deodorant and lotion.” She says the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act should be more progressive like laws in Europe rather than antiquated US regulations in effect since the 1930s.

If the industries that back this law are really so concerned about safety, why don’t they voluntarily make healthy products, like the small time producers already do?

Feinstein does not propose to ban these dangerous ingredients from soaps and cosmetics, just regulate them with tests and warning labels, fees, and recall authority. She thinks some of these products, though harmful to health, magically become “safe when used by professionals in a salon or spa setting.”

Companies and brands that support the bill:

  • Johnson & Johnson, brands include Neutrogena, Aveeno, Clean & Clear, Lubriderm, Johnson’s baby products.
  • Procter & Gamble, including Pantene, Head & Shoulders, Clairol, Herbal Essences, Secret, Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, Ivory, CoverGirl, Olay, Sebastian Professional, Vidal Sassoon.

Editor’s note 5/2/2015

The author has removed the original post and given the following explanation:

In the heat of the moment of trying to get the info out, I stupidly grabbed a generic-looking picture of soap off the Web to illustrate the post, figuring if it was copyright protected, the owner would contact me. She did and asked me to take the article down. I thought about changing the picture, but the old versions would still be floating around. I asked if she would let me try to correct my mistake by adding her website to the photo for credit. I also offered to pay her what money I had in my Paypal account, but she was mad that I stole her picture and insisted I take the article down, which I did.

I suggest anybody interested in following this topic connect with the Handmade Cosmetic Alliance, who have apparently been working diligently on the issue. By the way, the response floored me, as the post reach showed more than 100,000 when I took it down. I really wish I had followed correct protocol and asked for permission, and added the photographer’s website, since she makes soap, and it would have been great promo for her business! Ordinarily things I post don’t gain much traction. It was fun to watch it go viral. Too bad I didn’t do it right. Lesson learned. A lesson I already knew because I work with images and had one of mine heisted once. Anyway, I’m glad the word is out about this proposed regulation and people are paying attention to it now.

Statement From Governor Larry Hogan and Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake On Indictment Of Baltimore City Police Officers


ANNAPOLIS, MD – Governor Larry Hogan today released the following statement:

“For the safety and well-being of all Baltimore residents, I strongly urge everyone to continue to conduct themselves in a peaceful manner in the days ahead. The last week has been very difficult for the people of Baltimore and emotions are still running high following the indictments issued this morning by State’s Attorney Mosby. I believe in the criminal justice system, and we will all see this process play out over the coming months.

“I also want to thank the Baltimore residents who kept their protests calm and nonviolent over the last several days, including community leaders who worked to keep the peace in their neighborhoods. The incredibly hardworking men and women in the National Guard and State Police, as well as police and firefighters from Baltimore and the surrounding states and counties, deserve our thanks for their tireless efforts in protecting our citizens.”

Mayor of Baltimore, Md. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake Responds to Charges

As mayor, I have said from the beginning that no one is above the law in our city. I was sickened and heartbroken by the statement of charges we heard today. No one is above the law in our city. Justice must apply to all of us equally.

With today’s official indictment, I have ordered Police Commissioner Batts to utilize the full extent of his legal authority and immediately suspend, without pay, all officers facing felony charges. In fact, warrants have been executed and all officers are in custody.

We know that the vast majority of the men and women of the Baltimore Police Department continue to serve our city with pride, courage, and distinction. But to those who engage in brutality, misconduct, racism and corruption: there is no place for you in the Baltimore Police Department.

Today’s indictments are the next step in the legal process that is running its course. I will continue to be relentless in changing the culture of the police department to ensure that everyone in the City of Baltimore is treated equally under the law.

There will be justice for Mr. Gray,his family, and for the people of Baltimore.

HOMICIDE Charges! Freddie Gray’s Death, Baltimore City State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby FULL SPEECH


Note:  Just got finished listening to this announcement, I haven’t paid much energy to the ongoing police brutality problem across the nation because of the larger agenda behind the killings/beatings/abusive behavior. But, this news is worthy of our energy, time and attention.

God bless Marilyn Mosby for having the courage to stand in her power as Attorney General and do the right thing, when so many in her position are endorsing the police state by looking the other way. This is one of the moments in the shift we’ve been waiting for. This announcement WILL send ripples of conscience thru the legal system that will eventually manifest positive changes as it gains momentum.

Tears of joy and relief as I listened…we’re winning the war against the people battle-by-battle. Keep the faith!

U.S. Constitutional Law and Customary International Law for Territorial Annexation by Hawaiian Kingdom


To develop an informed position on current issues in Hawaiʻi, such as the TMT (Thirty Meter Telescope) standoff on Mauna Kea, it is important to have an accurate understanding of the legal status of Hawaiʻi.jason-lisa
The purpose of this article is to address common misconceptions people have regarding territorial annexation as it relates to the Constitution of the United States and customary international law.
In Article I, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution, the enumerated powers of Congress are domestic. Specifically, there is no enumerated power for annexation of foreign territory.
US_Constitution
From Article II, Section 2 of the U.S. Constitution, regarding the President and Senate:
“He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur”
This power was used by the United States to enter 9 treaties of cession, annexing 56 out of 58 acquired territories, over a period of 168 years (1783-1951). This is the self-evident pattern of customary international law regarding territorial annexation, followed consistently by the United States throughout its history.
The Indian Appropriation Act of 1871 and the Island of Palmas arbitration in 1925 legally prevented this power from being used for annexation of American Sāmoa. There were two failed attempts, in 1893 and 1897, to use this power for annexation of Hawaiʻi, both of which were due to less than two thirds approval of the Senate.
The context of Article IV, Section 3, of the U.S. Constitution, is clearly domestic:
“New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress.”
This power was used prematurely to admit Texas as a State in 1845 following two failed attempts, in 1837 and 1844, to pass a treaty of annexation for Texas in the U.S. Senate. The preliminary admission of Texas as a State in 1845 was followed by constitutional annexation of Texas as a Territory in 1848 through the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo.
Therefore, since the Newlands Resolution claimed to annex Hawaiʻi as a Territory in 1898, and not admit it as a State, Texas is an invalid precedent. Furthermore, all 49 of the United States, including Texas, have a treaty of cession, while Hawaiʻi does not. This makes Hawaiʻi an unprecedented historical anomaly in violation of customary international law for territorial annexation, that in turn provides the evidence through which the U.S. constitution is interpreted.
88 out of 90 members of the U.S. Senate in 1898 opposed annexation of Hawaiʻi by joint resolution, because they held that it was unconstitutional in the context of customary international law, since Texas failed to provide a valid precedent. (youtu.be/yC4v0k0wd0Y)
The historical data for customary international law regarding territorial annexation, followed by the USA throughout its history, does not substantiate constitutional annexation of Hawaiʻi to the United States via joint resolution of U.S. Congress in 1898. This alleged annexation is an outlier in the data set—9 treaties annexing 56 territories in 168 years, plus the cession by American Sāmoa—that stands alone without precedent, both before and after the Newlands Resolution.
The provision in the U.S. Constitution for territorial annexation by a supermajority of the U.S. Senate is unequivocal when interpreted through this complete data set for customary international law. This is the appropriate context which must be included in any assessment of the claim of that Hawaiian sovereignty has been transferred to the United States.
Today, the typical American is oblivious to this complete data set regarding annexation of territory by the United States. However, this is not because access is restricted to these data, but due to generations of being indoctrinated by propaganda to the contrary. Therefore, instead of investigating the data, and interpeting it objectively, the typical American accepts the assumption that Hawaiʻi is the “50th State” as a foregone conclusion.
Hence, as will undoubtedly be demonstrated in comments on social media reacting to this article, Americans (and Americans-at-heart) will insist that Texas was annexed by joint resolution and not the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo, since this underpins their belief that Hawaiʻi was annexed by joint resolution.
This unchallenged chain of assumptions, in turn, is a major factor underlying the belief that the TMT project has been legally approved for construction under American laws. However, by a score of 57 to 1, the data provided by customary international law fails to support the alternative hypothesis that the Hawaiian territory was annexed to the United States. In turn, these data invalidate the administration of U.S. laws in the Hawaiian territory.
Conversely, the data fails to reject the null hypothesis that the Hawaiian State has not been extinguished from its territory. Therefore, it cannot be concluded from customary international law that Hawaiʻi is part of the United States. Since occupation exists in the absence of annexation, and since both are mutually exclusive, the USA is in Hawaiʻi and not the other way around. In other words, Hawaiʻi is not part of the United States—nor has it ever been—without a treaty of cession.
Consequently, construction of the TMT would be classified as a war crime under international law through “extensive destruction and appropriation of property, not justified by military necessity and carried out unlawfully and wantonly,” which is one of the grave breaches specified in the 1949 Geneva Conventions.

Max Igan ~ “Constructing The End Game” April 24, 2015


Note: While in the long run I believe a much Higher plan is unfolding for the collective, from what I’ve been observing on the global 3D “stage” it appears humanity “may” be heading into some uncomfortable territory later this year – especially in the U.S. and Canada. For those who have done the work and mastered Co-reational, manifestational aspects of their consciousness and are sharply tuned in to their inner turn-by-turn guidance system, you have already created a Higher Path thru any possible turmoil during the full-collapse of the financial matrix. Trusting yourself and knowing you planned this lifetime from the point of your ancient future and that your Higher Self is your navigator thru the labyrinth of the matrix is key.

It’s also important to be  keenly aware that humanity has “assistance” from numerous off world and inter-dimensional races, not here as saviors but to help us make a course correction in ways that are hard for most of us to perceive from our current, limited perspective. Many contactee’s like Scott Lemerial and Simon Parkes are stepping forward with crucial information for understanding a much bigger picture unfolding that holds GREAT PROMISE. So while it’s important to be aware of whats happening in the world, it’s vital that we observe from the sacred neutral perspective and only invest a tiny portion of our energy into what “appears” to be on the horizon.

Our human perspective is limited and illusionary in nature. What happens in the outer world is a reflection of our inner world. And, our vibrational frequency determines the level of difficulty we create and experience on this sentient, holographic spaceship called Mother Earth/Gaia/Sophia/Mama. What you focus on you create.

With one caveat, if Max is correct in his assessment, what we’re heading into is for the most part a reality much of the unconscious collective has created thru fear and ignorance, the chaos will be their backdrop but still on the playing field we have to maneuver on. So maintaining a higher vibration while walking thru the fire is the challenge which will ultimately earn us personal Mastery over this reality.

That said, Max does a great job connecting the “3D dots” to help us best determine our next few moves on the chess board in the coming months. It’s not about fear, it’s about being aware and prepared, and not investing your energy into what may be distractions and false constructs. If your not already doing it, start seeding your intentions into the future to create the most desirable outcome possible.  Visualize it, believe and see it come to pass with gratitude.

Most of all, remember the most important thing to keep our focus on is the energy of the NOW moment, in BEing present. Keep your focus on surrendering and allowing the greater good to flow into your life, in letting go of all resistance and relaxing into “It”. From my POV, the future is already done and we made it thru with flying colors…albeit a bit worn and tattered, WE shifted the paradigm!

And so it is!  :)

Note: BIG mahalo to Karen for submitting this new Simon Parkes interview, her feedback on 12 strand DNA states:

“I still listen to him but carefully. He is right about the 12 strands of DNA, what I have found that you just have to request integration and what I have witnessed is that they will start to weave into your consciousness. When this happens the concept of separate dimensions collapses…”\

Enjoy! Blessings, {~A~}

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

What a fascinating two part series this is! Simon Parkes and Alexandra Meadors review how growing up in a home filled with espionage lead to an extraordinary exposure to some of the most significant conspiracies in the world such as Operation Paperclip. Simon discusses so many out of the box topics like reptilian energies, connecting with our 12 strands of DNA, connecting to other realities, soul activation, universal law…

When It Becomes Serious, First They Lie – When That Fails, They Arrest You


Tyler Durden's picture

Submitted by Charles Hugh-Smith of OfTwoMinds blog,

When lying is no longer enough to gain compliance, then the organs of security are unleashed on dissent and resistance.

“When it becomes serious, you have to lie.” Jean-Claude Juncker simply gave voice to what the world’s leaders practice on a daily basis, because now it’s always serious.
And why is it now serious? Persuading tax donkeys and debt serfs that everything is going their way is now impossible without lies. Persuading the populace that the leadership is working on their behalf was jettisoned in the wake of the 2008 bailout of bankers and parasites.
Stripped of the artifice that they care about anything other than preserving the wealth of their cronies, global political leaders now rely on propaganda: narratives designed to manage expectations and perceptions, bolstered by carefully tailored official statistics.
Reliance on lies erodes legitimacy. As the rich get richer and the burdens on tax donkeys and debt serfs increase, the gulf between the official happy-story narrative and reality widens to the breaking point, and faith in the narrative and the leadership espousing it declines.
When 20% of the populace no longer believe the lies and begins questioning the state’s enforcement of the status quo, the government devotes its resources to punishing dissenters and resisters. Whistleblowers are charged with trumped-up crimes; those publicly refuting the status quo’s narrative of lies are harassed and discredited, and those who resist state enforcement of parasitic cronyism are set up, beaten, entrapped, investigated, interrogated and arrested once suitably Kafkaesque charges can be conjured up by the apparatchiks of enforcement.
Why 20%? It’s the Pareto Distribution (the 80/20 rule): the 20% of any populace that accepts a new trend, technology or narrative has an outsized influence over the other 80%.
Governments operate on the premise that propaganda and threats will always be enough to cow their populaces into compliance and bribes will induce complicity.When lies, bribes and threats no long work, the state unleashes its full pathological powers on dissent.
The last mass campaign of political suppression in the U.S. occurred in the late 1960s and early 1970s, when resistance to the war of choice in Vietnam reached mainstream proportions.
The U.S. government was accustomed to manipulating and managing the populace with very simple propaganda: Communism is our deadly enemy, we must fight it everywhere on the planet, etc. But when thousands of American service personnel started coming home in body bags from the latest “we must fight Communism everywhere because it’s dangerous to us” war in East Asia, this simplistic justification made no sense: what existential threat to the U.S. did a Communist Vietnam pose?
The U.S. has faced only two existential threats to its sovereignty since 1860: World War II (1941-45) and the potential for a nation-destroying nuclear war with the Soviet Union. The idea that the U.S. was existentially threatened by falling dominoes in East Asia was always ludicrous, and the U.S. status quo (the political leadership, the Deep State, private industry profiting from war, etc.) soon abandoned the absurd justification.
Vietnam was always more of a domestic-politics issue than a geopolitical one: the Democrats feared being perceived as being “weak on Communism” because that impacted the results of elections. Throwing treasure and American lives away in Vietnam was pure domestic politics from 1961-68 (once mired, Democrats feared being tagged as the party that “lost Vietnam”), and thereafter the treasure and lives were sacrificed on the equally contrived Nixon-Kissinger policy of avoiding losing geopolitical face with a withdrawal that amounted to surrender.
Though it is not well known, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) was ordered to devote essentially all its resources to suppressing dissent in these years. Teams assigned to organized crime were reassigned to track down draft resisters and other political malcontents.
COINTELPRO was a vast program devoted to illegally entrapping, beating up and undermining any and all political resistance to the war and the government’s increasingly heavy-handed oppression of dissent.
Simply put: when lies no longer work, governments freak out and devote their resources not to eliminating wars of choice, cronyism and corruption but to suppressing dissent and resistance to those policies.
The U.S. government has always been free to pursue wars of choice with its professional military, with little risk of widespread political blowback. A variety of “splendid little wars” have been waged, generally for conquest or enforcement of hemispheric hegemony. The government’s success in rallying the nation during World War II instilled a false confidence that merely raising the flag of existential threat would be enough to eliminate dissent and elicit compliance in the masses.
Vietnam was the first time the American public went through the process of buying the usual “threat” justification for war, questioning the threat and eventually rejecting the state’s narrative. The government responded by lashing out at its own citizenry, engaging in a full spectrum of illegal and blatantly immoral actions designed not to right wrongs or fix broken policies, but to suppress dissent and resistance to destructive policies and broken systems.
The U.S. government is not unique in this; on the contrary, all governments, by their very nature as concentrations of coercive power, will pursue the same path. Rather than confess the government is operated by cronies, for cronies, the machinery of the state will increasingly be turned on its citizenry.
Rendering unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s is no longer enough; abiding by the laws of the land are no longer enough. What the state demands is not just compliance with its countless laws and regulations, but absolute obedience to its narratives and policies.
Anyone who withholds obedience is quickly deemed a traitor–not to the nation or its Constitution, but to the state itself, which is ultimately a collection of cronies and self-serving vested interests protecting their fiefdoms at the expense of the citizenry.
When lying is no longer enough to gain compliance, then the organs of security are unleashed on dissent and resistance.This process is well under way in nation-states around the world.
If I had to pick the two key operative dynamics of the next 20 years, I would choose:
1. The over-expansion and implosion of credit/debt bubbles.
2. The over-reach of the central state as it seeks to win the hearts and minds of its people by ruthlessly suppressing dissent.
The two dynamics are of course causally connected. Central states depend entirely on credit bubbles for their financial survival, and on enforcing increasingly untenable official narratives for their legitimacy.
Both are unraveling, and will continue to unravel, no matter how many state resources are thrown at the symptoms of political illegitimacy, rather than at the root causes of that illegitimacy.

FCC Rules Designed to Stifle Internet Political Speech



2015-03-14 3:47

by Kurt Nimmo | infowars.com

On Thursday the Federal Communications Commission made public a document detailing its so-called net neutrality rules that were approved two weeks ago on a 3-2 vote.

A PDF version of the document can be downloaded here.

The rules impose heavy regulations on what is currently a free and open internet and will ultimately result in federal government micromanagement.

The rules will also accelerate and finalize a long term government objective of censoring political enemies and limiting their use of the internet. Serious political opposition to the establishment has flourished on the internet and the federal government has stumbled in previous efforts to regulate speech its considers politically threatening.

Control of the internet is the primary motivation behind the FCC rule-making agenda, not net neutrality and the fallacious call to regulate corporations and enforce the principle that all data is equal.

This was made clear by opponents to the FCC report and order on remand.

“Americans love the free and open Internet. We relish our freedom to speak, to post, to rally, to learn, to listen, to watch, and to connect online. The Internet has become a powerful force for freedom, both at home and abroad. So it is sad to witness the FCC’s unprecedented attempt to replace that freedom with government control,” writes FCC commissioner Ajit Pai.

The desire to assert that control became obvious in February, 2014, when the FCC terminated a study that threatened the First Amendment right to freedom of the press. The study on “critical information needs” would have asked journalists about their “news philosophy” and raised the specter of an underhanded attempt to revive the Fairness Doctrine.

“The Commission’s decision to adopt President Obama’s plan marks a monumental shift toward government control of the Internet. It gives the FCC the power to micromanage virtually every aspect of how the Internet works. It’s an overreach that will let a Washington bureaucracy, and not the American people, decide the future of the online world,” Pai continues.

“Let’s leave the power where it belongs — with the American people. When it comes to Americans’ ability to access online content or offer political speech online, there isn’t anything broken for the government to ‘fix,’” Pai wrote in a Politico op-ed in February.

“It is difficult to imagine where we would be today had the government micromanaged the Internet for the past two decades as it does Amtrak and the U.S. Postal Service. Neither of us wants to find out where the Internet will be two decades from now if the federal government tightens its regulatory grip. We don’t need to shift control of the Internet to bureaucracies in Washington.”

Concerted Effort to Neutralize Political Speech on the Internet

The entire rubric of cyberespionage and cybersecurity is designed for state control over the individual, not for protection from Anonymous and hackers in China or Russia.

“Some argue that heightened surveillance, restrictions on Internet freedom and even censorship are necessary to protect intellectual property rights, prevent cyberespionage, fight child pornography, and protect national interests such as nuclear power plants from hackers,” Fox News noted last February.

“Consequently, lawmakers — even President Obama in his State of the Union address — have been motivated to take steps to stem the hacking tide. However, the road to better security could also stifle free speech.”

In fact, the drastically overblown and often fictional threat of cyber security is engineered specifically to curtail speech, not harm from child pornographers but from political opposition to the state.

Recently refurbished cyber security legislation, having failed to become law in the recent past, is now being dusted off in congressional committees. Once enacted, cybersecurity measures will run concurrent to FCC rules and will impose a matrix of control over the internet.

The FCC and the corporate media continue to prortray the latest effort to regulate the internet as a win for the little guy, when in fact regulation will not diminish corporate control of the internet.

As Infowars.com noted in February:

Obama and the federal government have bent over backwards to portray net neutrality as a win for the little guy. In fact, despite all the siren warnings about socialism and the FCC by Obama’s opponents, the agency is in the pocket of the telecommunications industry and always has been.

Its current appointed boss, Tom Wheeler, is a former lobbyist for the cable and wireless industry, with positions including President of the National Cable & Telecommunications Association and CEO of the Cellular Telecommunications & Internet Association.


“Net neutrality is a classic Trojan horse,” I argued. “It will be used not only to censor speech and marginalize opposition to the political class, but will also deliver the internet to large and forever consolidating media corporations.”

As the NSA and the behavior of corporations in league with the intelligence community reveals, the internet will, after the FCC rules take hold and cybersecurity laws are implemented, finally be sanitized of meaningful political opposition and, as well, serve as a surveillance platform and a tool for corporate advertisers to categorize and target individuals.

STOP FAST TRACK. STOP THE TPP: Trans-Pacific Partnership Appoints Monsanto Plaintiff, Judge and Jury


Many complain about the effects of GMOs and toxic chemicals, which is but the tip of the Monsanto iceberg, yet this is where we need to “show up”. When we fail to stop these senate bills, and they are “fast tracked”, we are giving our CONSENT to them. Don’t complain about it afterwards. Many have been shouting from the roof tops for decades! This is your world…CHANGE IT – pull your consent and make the call.

'TPP ALERT! DO YOU WANT an all-powerful Monsanto? A provision of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) “trade” deal called Investor-State Dispute Settlement (ISDS) would allow Monsanto to sue any nation bound by the TPP contract (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, the United States, and Vietnam) for potential lost profits as a result of GMO or pesticide regulations. Have GMO labeling or cultivation bans within your borders? Get ready to go to court. Monsanto’s court, that is. With ISDS, Monsanto can take its case before an international corporate court where corporate lawyers are the judges. And the ruling can’t be challenged in the defending nation’s courts.
