Bundy Ranch, BLM Abused Cliven Bundy’s Cattle, Mass Graves, PETA, Ranch Damaged, Bureau of Land Management

The US federal government might have just evoked the fury of animal right groups over their shocking treatment of cattle at the Bundy Ranch, and may soon face legal charges of severe animal abuse in Clark County, Nevada.

Federal agency’s treatment of residents at the Bundy Ranch this past week included tasering, beating, wrongful arrest, threatening residents with attack dogs, and mobilizing a federal paramilitary force whose barrels were trained on US citizens, all in all, spending at least $3 million of tax payer money in an effort to sell stolen cattle over state lines in Utah and California. A legal argument has also been made that the US Department of Interior’s Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is now guilty of racketeering under the federal RIC) statute (Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Organizations). If all that wasn’t enough, evidence is now emerging regarding pattern of extreme cruelty and abuse, and suspected culling of animals from the Bundy Ranch.

Nevada Assemblywoman Michelle Fiore has released new shocking information and images which document the horrors which BLM agents have inflicted on previously happy and healthy livestock.

During a live radio broadcast of The Pete Santilli Show on GNM, Fiore reveals new details of “the BLM’s method of herding where they have slaughtered horses and cows. This time we have video of it, and pictures of it.”

“I did post the first picture of one cow who was shot in the back of the head from a helicopter (photo above).”

“I personally helped save a calf who still had an umbilical cord attached to her as she was separated from her mom. It is such a disgusting event (…)… they (BLM) don’t herd cattle – they slaughter cattle”, said Fiore.

According to the Bundy family, in total, 27 baby calves have been rescued thus far, but farmers are still having trouble matching them up with their mothers.

‘Abusively corralled’

“If you look at the stewardship of land, and herding of cattle, first of all these particular cattle that were grazing on 600,000 acres – understand that when the Bundy family would herd their own cattle, there would be water taps to where the cattle would go down to the water and herd them humbly and softly – no cruelty, no abuse, herding them to where the cattle could get injured”.

“We now have an evidenced-based argument now with how the BLM cannot take care of that cattle. We have cows giving birth (in the federal pen) where baby calves have been stepped on and killed.”

“This is the BLM’s practice. They herd animals with helicopters, ATV’s, and shotguns… If any cows get out of line – they get a bullet in the back of the head”.

“Make sure the BLM are off state land and make sure the BLM are not allowed to herd cattle again”.

Mass Graves
“Near their compound, right off the highway, they were digging holes (…)… They tried to bury some cows on the compound, but I guess they didn’t dig the hole deep enough, so throw a cow in and they dirt over him and you have cows legs cows’ legs sticking up out of the dirt”.

Daniel-P-Love-BLMEarlier this week GMN revealed a secret recording of the BLM Special Agent in Charge, Daniel P. Love (photo, left), who had stated that the BLM have not killed any cattle. Fiore’s reply to Love’s claim:

“He’s a flat out liar, period.”

It was confirmed by ranchers and observers last week of how the BLM and their “contract cowboy” had deployed aggressive practices whilst rustling the Bundy’s herd, using tactical helicopters (image, below) forcing cattle to removal zones, often times driving cows uphill in 90F heat – a lethal practice known to cause tremendous stress and exhaustion to the animals, causing sickness and even premature death.

Evidence of BLM’s Deadly Abuse of Animals Taken from Bundy Ranch
Last week, farmers suspected that BLM agents were also scooping up the dead animals with heavy equipment like Backhoe diggers, and either burying carcasses somewhere on the 600,000 acre public grazing land, or disposing of them somewhere off site.

In addition, reports by observers confirmed that spring heifers who were subject to abusive BLM tactics were forced to abandon some calves behind to hide in the desert bush (a common practice by mothers who are being rustled, who later can backtrack to retrieve their young) putting the calves at risk of death.

Critics now believe the BLM and Clark County Sheriff’s Office could be facing a strong legal challenge for their reckless handling of the ill-fated operation underlined by a litany of both human and animal rights abuses.

These men and woman are Americans attacking Americans. I’m speechless. If you saw the number of police agencies united, I’d hope you’d be curious. We are talking about dozens of our finest SWAT members from Metro, Metro black & white cars, EMT, fire rescue trucks, detention buses (a.k.a. Paddy wagons), over 50 Ranger and BLM vehicles, numerous highway patrol vehicles, and a Black Hawk Helicopter on the Moapa airfield, just to name a few. We watched the Waco Massacre and Ruby Ridge; was the BLM preparing for a “Bunkerville Slaughter”? I believe in my heart because of these last two disasters, Americans from all over our country traveled from afar to stand with the Bundys and let our government know enough is enough. I’m proud to stand with my fellow Americans.

The numbers don’t calculate. The federal government had the authority and an open checkbook to spend 10 million dollars or more for a maximum return of $200,000.  Here’s how I calculate that number:  the BLM might collect maybe 400 heads of cattle, taking into account the number of cattle they would kill while rounding them up. From the round up, the cattle would go to auction. How much do you think you’ll pay for a half-dead, beat up cow? Let’s say they were able to successful auction off 400 cows for $500.00 each (I’m being very very generous). The brainiac head of BLM authorized 10 million dollars or more to maybe recoup $200,000.  Really? As a CEO I’d fire that decision-maker immediately. In their minds, maybe it’s worth getting rid of the cows, or just killing them, so the cows won’t destroy equipment for a project they might want to implement.

The BLM tried to paint their actions as enforcing the law; however, there are several other reasons why the BLM chose to pick this fight. It cannot be a coincidence that the place where the Bundy’s have grazed their cattle for hundreds of years would suddenly become an animal refuge for desert tortoises; is it really desert tortoises? If so, why would the BLM be euthanizing them? That’s right, BLM has EUTHANIZED 700-800 desert tortoises. Trust but verify. Click here to read one of many stories about it.

We’re also seeing reports that the BLM land in Gold Butte is very desirable for energy projects, which may have prompted this sudden strong-arm tactic. Don’t trust me, verify it. Click here to read the BLM’s own report on the project.

A major concern in all of this was how the BLM treated the cattle. It is completely irresponsible that after years of conversations, the Feds would begin their roundup during the season when calves are being born. In this mess, newborn calves were separated from their mothers; some were trampled in their holding pens and left for dead. A helicopter acted as a cowboy to heard the cows, causing a few to have heart attacks and die. The conditions of the holding pens where they kept the cows for days were heartless and cruel. Where was PETA?

I do want to comment about the upstanding citizens who came to show their support, including the Oath Keepers, a non-partisan association of current and formerly serving military, police, and first responders who are committed to defending the Constitution. They are honorable men and women who acted professionally and respectfully.  There were many groups of freedom fighters who traveled from all over our country to stand together. I have a very serious request to all agency officers and that request is, “not to obey your superiors when given a direct order to attack your fellow Americans fighting for the freedoms granted to us by our Constitution”.  Take a sick day or a vacation.

Reports on the ground that day also confirmed that even more armed Federal reinforcements were on the way, but luckily were caught up in stand-still traffic ten miles out from the scene. What were they planning? Photos by a GMN photographer positioned behind federal lines at the Battle of Bundy Ranch, further reveal the scale and scope of Washington’s military operation on US soil.

Viewers can judge for themselves whether or not the US Federal government was playing a deceptive, deadly game with American lives - on both sides.

Here’s a photo taken from the air of the BLM’s secret bovine concentration camps. After this photo was released, the BLM ordered the FAA to shut down the air space over the ranch, creating a wartime “no fly zone” to prevent more pictures from being taken

Government tactics caused death of cattle

“It was confirmed by ranchers and observers last week of how the BLM and their ‘contract cowboys’ had deployed aggressive practices whilst rustling the Bundy’s herd, using tactical helicopters [and] forcing cattle to removal zones, often times driving cows uphill in 90-degree heat — a lethal practice known to cause tremendous stress and exhaustion to the animals, causing sickness and even premature death,” the wire service reported.

“In addition, reports by observers confirmed that spring heifers who were subject to abusive BLM tactics were forced to abandon some calves behind to hide in the desert bush (a common practice by mothers who are being rustled, who later can backtrack to retrieve their young) putting the calves at risk of death.”

Critics now believe the BLM and Clark County Sheriff’s Office could face legal challenges for reckless handling of the situation. It is now obvious that they were all complicit in the commission of horrific atrocities against animals.

Some have made a legal observation that the BLM, which falls under the U.S. Department of the Interior, may be guilty of racketeering under federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corruption Organization) statutes.

According to several reports breaking on social media Wednesday, federal agents targeting the Bundy Ranch in Clark County, Nev. did much more than merely herd hundreds of cows away from the site prior to backing down from their position Saturday. The following graphic images are being distributed by the Bundy Ranch as proof that multiple head of cattle were slaughtered, apparently under the direction of federal Bureau of Land Management officers.

BLM killed prize bulls and cut holes in water tanks and destroyed fences during the stand-off last week in Clark County, Nevada.

Fort Hood Now Confirmed As Bush-Nazi Paperclip NSA BLACK OP Headquarters by Tom Heneghan, International Intelligence Expert



UNITED States of America   -  

ATTENTION CRISIS ACTORS: There are job openings at Fort Hood, Texas.

Fort Hood Job Posting:  “Seeking Individuals To Act as Role Players…In A Mass Casualty Exercise”
Mac Slavo
April 3rd, 2014
SHTFplan.com Speculation as to the circumstances surrounding the most recent mass shooting at Fort Hood abounds.

A recent posting on Craigslist is fueling the fire even more, with some suggesting that it is evidence of yet another government facilitated false flag operation.

According to a March 12, 2014 snapshot of a listing on the popular classifieds web site, the government was looking for individuals to act as role players to participate in a “mass casualty exercise” scheduled for March 17, 18 and 19 and to be held on base at Fort Hood, TX. Contractors were to be paid $100 for their participation.

Role Players for Military mock simulated disaster (Ft Hood)
Government contractor is seeking individuals to act as role players to participate in a ” mass casualty exercise ” on the FT Hood military installation.
Role players will participate in an exercise that will replicate civilians in the area that have been injured during a disaster that is used in the scenario. Role players will be medically treated during this exercise at numerous locations on Ft Hood.

The objective of this exercise is to train and assess medical units with regards to civilians that have been injured during a disaster.

We are seeking individuals to take part in this exercise on March 17, 18 & 19 Individuals must be at least 18 years of age and legal to work in the United States.

You will be paid upon completion of the exercise on the last day of work. Please contact Michael Boyd at (954)294-0526. An appointment will be set up to meet and further information will be given.

post id: 4372490185 posted: 2014-03-12 9:45pm

Here is a screen grab of the posting at Archive.org, a historical database of the internet that captures the content of millions of web pages daily:

According to Craigslist the posting has been deleted from the web site by its author. It is not clear when the deletion took place.

As has been the case with many recent acts of terrorism on U.S. soil, it seems that police or military have often been engaged in training exercises that closely mimic the actual events, often during the exact same time as the “real” event was taking place.

This was evident during the attacks of September 11, 2001 when the US military was engaged in a training exercise involving North American Air Defenses. As the attacks on the World Trade Center were taking place recordings from civilian and military operators reveal that military chain of command wasn’t sure whether the events being portrayed were “real world” or training. Experts suggest that this confusion contributed to a complete meltdown in America’s national defenses.

But September 11th isn’t the only example.

Ahead of the mass shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary the Department of Homeland Security was staging a mock exercise just minutes away.
A few days prior to the Aurora, Colorado theater shooting a university just 16 miles away had staged an exercise that eerily depicted a gunman shooting movie goers.

And, after the Boston Marathon bombing the Department of Homeland Security officially acknowledged “frighteningly similar scenarios” between an exercise dubbed Operation Urban Shield and the actual events that took place at the marathon. The drill itself was held in Boston, Massachusetts and happened to be taking place in a live environment at the Marathon and at the very moment that the bombings were being executed.

We can chalk all of this off to coincidence, but given that nearly every major terrorist act in the United States in recent years has been preceded by a military or Homeland Security exercise depicting similar scenarios within minutes of where the actual events took place, one can’t help but question the official narratives.

Marijuana Legalization Will Kill Puppies! According To DEA Head (ROTFLMAO!!)


  

“Michele Leonhart, the head of the Drug Enforcement Administration, has a message for those considering legalizing marijuana: Please, think of Fido.

Testifying on the DEA budget during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing on Wednesday, Leonhart said she expected a number of things to happen after Washington and Colorado were allowed to go forward with the legalization of marijuana last year. What she didn’t anticipate was the impact on man’s best friend.

“There was just an article last week, and it was on pets. It was about the unanticipated or unexpected consequences of this, and how veterinarians now are seeing dogs come in, their pets come in, and being treated because they’ve been exposed to marijuana,” Leonhart said.”

Let’s rally to send farmers, ranchers & tribal members to REJECT + PROTECT


REJECT + PROTECT

Support farmers, ranchers, tribal communities and allies to tell President Obama: REJECT + PROTECT!

On April 22, an alliance of pipeline fighters — ranchers, farmers, tribal communities, and their friends — called the Cowboy and Indian Alliance will ride into Washington DC for the next, and perhaps final, chapter in the fight against Keystone XL.

On that day, the Alliance will set up camp near the White House, lighting sacred fire and burning our sage, and for 5 days, they will hold ceremonies and demonstration to remind him of the threat this tar sands pipeline poses to our climate, land, water and tribal rights.

On April 26 [note date change], the Alliance has invited friends and allies against the pipeline to join us as we conclude our camp and march together for our final, unmistakable message to Pres. Obama.

We’re raising funds to support Cowboy Indian Alliance members to send the strongest message possible to President Obama this April. Your contribution will make sure organizers from along the pipeline route can make it to DC and bring all of the beauty and power of our movement along with them.

The Return Of Common Law – The People Take Back The Republic


April 1, 2014 by
“When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the Earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

The Unanimous Declaration of Independence of the thirteen united States of America, July 4th, 1776

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

These powerful words written so long ago, still resonate deeply within the souls of Americans. Were they created by the minds of ordinary men, or were they divinely inspired? Perhaps both. But just as the meaning and inspiration held in many profound ancient texts have been misinterpreted or forgotten, the Declaration of Independence appears to have been lost in the sands of time.

In this case, the reasons are more than simply the natural evolution of a “civilization.” Through careful and purposeful orchestration, the people have been guided to follow an alternate system of government. But somehow, the words and meaning have not lost their impact, even now after their very basic tenets have been violated by the sprawling system of government that has overtaken the “rights” of the “people.”

Why a Republic vs. Democracy

The founding fathers of the united States of America, with their great declaration, intended for the existence of a Republic, a term most people today don’t even fully understand. You may have noticed that the letter “u” in “united” is not capitalized. This is done intentionally to point out that the original united States, were not a single corporate entity or “country.” Each of the States in the union was an independent sovereign country unto itself, with its people choosing to cooperate as one unified body with the other states to provide strength and stability. But the people of the modern day “United States” (uppercase “U”), have been led to believe that those original systems no longer exist, and that the United States is one “Nation” to which each “person” is obligated. But nothing could be further from the truth. In reality, each State still exists as an independent sovereign country, and what we all know as “The United States” (upper case “u”) actually only amounts to 68.3 square miles known as Washington DC, USA. If you are “domiciled” and a “resident” within those 68.3 miles, then you are a “citizen” of the United States of America. The rest of Americans are “domiciled’ in the state where they maintain their primary home. Therefore, those who do not legally claim to be “residents” or “citizens” of The United States, even if they are “domiciled” and were born within the 50 states, are not. It is your acceptance of this fictional legal label that places you under the legal “jurisdiction” and therefore ruler “ship” (Maritime Admiralty Law) of the United States.

While leaders tout the “Democratic” system of government, the people have been deceived into believing that this is a system of their own choosing that provides the most freedom, completely unaware that a Democratic system closely resembles an Oligarchical system of government.

In a Republic, the government gets its power from the people. In a Democracy, the government rules of its own free will, and in turn, gives its citizens limited “privileges” under which they may live. Democracies are therefore prone to “Corporate” rule as is clearly evident in the United States and most other countries in the world. In such a system, whoever has the most money and therefore power, rules the people. You can just imagine how many injustices can befall the people in such a system.

Not a Country, a Corporation

How do you know that the United States is not a Country, but a corporation? It’s so simple that it has been completely overlooked by most people; every corporation is required to have a President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer. Many also choose to have Dun & Bradstreet corporate numbers (DUNS). Independent states of the union do not have these titles by comparison, although they all are now also incorporated.

DUNSCitizens of the United States are also incorporated, hence the uppercase name on all legal documents designating your legal corporate fiction and the associated Cestui Que Vie Fund attaching a financial value on your body and issued at the time of obtaining a Birth Certificate. So what is the difference between a Democracy and a Republic? Primarily it is the legal system. A Democracy primarily follows “Statutory Law” whereas the original Republic of The united States followed “Common Law” or “Natural Law.” The following examples will better illustrate the vast differences.

Aided by statutory law, Monsanto, the Genetically Engineered Seed company, has gained a reputation for fraudulent lawsuits against small farmers in order to force the adoption of their patented GMO seeds, by claiming that these farms are responsible for seeds that contaminate their farmland from neighboring GMO “licensed” farms. Under the same legal system, the IRS can take away a family’s home for failure to pay taxes, which actually don’t in any way go toward the benefit of the people, but into the hands of a few who own the Federal Reserve Bank. Under this system, the government, instead of printing its own currency, has become a slave to the privately held Federal Reserve Bank which is anything but “Federal.” We live in a country where our leaders, who are responsible for wars, and the suffering of so many, experience unlimited wealth and freedom, while the rest of the people spend years in prison and are subject to fines for nonpayment of taxes or driving without a license. Is this how a free and enlightened society conducts itself? Is this the kind of world you want to live in, or to have your children grow up in?

Where Do We Go from Here

While on the surface it may seem as if all hope is lost, the world, and especially the united States, are in a time of revolutionary change. Never before in our current history, have so many breakthrough changes been apparent. Along with the breakthroughs in technology, health and consciousness, we are also seeing changes in the Nation’s legal system…a return to a better system of justice… a return to Common Law. In all 50 States of the union, there is a massive grassroots movement toward the reinstatement of Common Law. Already, New York, Florida, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Jersey and New Hampshire have Common Law Grand Juries constituted in every county. In other States such as Michigan, where this writer is personally involved, the movement is rapidly making progress. An increasing number of county Sheriffs throughout the united States are also siding with this movement, providing for the necessary enforcement of the decisions of the newly established Common Law Grand Juries. This is the most promising and important thing happening in the world at this time. This single small idea stands a chance in changing everything for the better and will impact every facet of our lives within a very short time.

How Does Common Law Change the Way We Govern

Under a system of “Common Law,” the original foundation of the united States of America, every individual has “unalienable rights.” This is not the same as “civil rights” or “privileges” as is the case of the statutory law based Democratic system of government. Unalienable rights are not rights given to the “people” by government, but are given to them by their Creator. Therefore these are rights that cannot be granted or taken away by government or by “corporations.”

In such a system, a corporation such as Monsanto, cannot sue a farmer, because the rights of the farmer supersede those of a corporation, which has no rights over the “people.” In such a system, the IRS holds no power to take away someone’s home, because to do so would be to infringe on the rights of the individual. Under common law, the remedy for any breach of the law would be reflective of the law that was broken. And, individuals who do things that cause no harm to another individual would not be considered to have broken the law.

In some States, there are now laws against the collection of rainwater by homeowners and businesses. Some violators of this law have been forced to purchase rainwater rights from their government for the “privilege” of collecting water that falls on their own property. Under Common Law, such a limitation on the freedom of people would not exist simply at the whim of government, without concrete evidence that collecting rainwater on one’s own property harms another individual.

However, if one of our appointed leaders caused harm to others, the punishment would be reflective of the crime, and it is the people who would determine whether a law has been broken, as well as the appropriate and fair remedy.

Can you imagine a world that is governed by Common or Natural Law? Can you imagine a world where our leaders answer to the people who are in their care? Can you imagine a world where people, not corporate entities, determine the direction of our future? This is no longer a dream, but rapidly becoming a reality…Today.

Rothschild Inherits a Semiconductor Patent for Freescale Semiconductors


March 23, 2014
fc1d76b92905d06679be693c7a4389c0_article

The disappearance of four members of a patent semiconductor traveling on Malaysia Airlines MH370 makes the famous billionaire Jacob Rothschild at the sole owner of the important patent.

The mystery surrounding the Malaysian Airlines MH-370 is growing as each day passes with more mysterious silence shadowing the disappearance of the airline. More and more conspiracy theories are beginning to boom on the internet. One of the conspiracies one is the Freescale Semiconductor’s ARM microcontroller ‘KL-03′ which is a new improvised version of an older microcontroller KL-02. This crazy story about how Illuminati Rothschild exploited the airlines to gain full Patent Rights of an incredible KL-03 micro-chip is going haywire across the internet especially when it’s involving Jacob Rothschild as the evil master plotter.

A US technology company which had 20 senior staff on board Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 had just launched a new electronic warfare gadget for military radar systems in the days before the Boeing 777 went missing.

Freescale Semiconductor has been developing microprocessors, sensors and other technology for the past 50 years. The technology it creates is commonly referred to as embedded processors, which according to the firm are “stand-alone semiconductors that perform dedicated computing functions in electronic systems”.

Why were so many Freescale employees traveling together? What were their jobs. Were they on a mission and if so what was this mission? Can these employees be the cause of the disappearance of this plane? Could the plane have been then hijacked and these people kidnapped? Did these employees hold valuable information, did they have any valuable cargo with them? Did they know company and technological secrets? With all the might of technology why cant this plane be located? Where is this plane where are these people?”

The 20 Freescale employees, among 239 people on flight MH370, were mostly engineers and other experts working to make the company’s chip facilities in Tianjin, China, and Kuala Lumpur more efficient, said Mitch Haws, vice president, global communications and investor relations.

“These were people with a lot of experience and technical background and they were very important people,” Haws said. “It’s definitely a loss for the company.”

In Malaysia, Freescale’s modern operations facility that manufactures and tests integrated circuits (IC) is based in Petaling Jaya.

Based on information obtained from Freescale’s website, the facility began operations in 1972 covering an eight hectare site and is specifically designed for the manufacturing and testing of microprocessors, digital signal processors and integrated radio frequency circuits.

It also owns Freescale RF which is involved in creating solutions for Aerospace and Defence listed below.

1. Battlefield communication

2. Avionics

3. HF Radar – Band L- and S-

4. Missile Guidance

5. Electronic Warfare

6. Identification, friend or foe (IFF)

Freescale’s shareholders include the Carlyle Group of private equity investors whose past advisers have included ex-US president George Bush Sr and former British Prime Minister John Major.

Carlyle’s previous heavyweight clients include the Saudi Binladin Group, the construction firm owned by the family of Osama bin Laden.

The fact that Freescale had so many highly qualified staff on board the Boeing 777 had already prompted wild conspiracy theories about what might have happened.

The company says they were flying to China to improve its consumer products operations, but Freescale’s fresh links to electronic warfare technology is likely to trigger more speculation and deepen the mystery.

Experts have been baffled how a large passenger jet seems to have flown undetected and possibly beaten military radar systems for up to six hours.

Avoiding radar via “cloaking technology” has long been one of the objectives of the defense industry and Freescale has been active developing chips for military radar.

On its website, the company says its radio frequency products meet the requirements for applications in “avionics, radar, communications, missile guidance, electronic warfare and identification friend or foe”.

Last June it announced it was creating a team of specialists dedicated to producing “radio frequency power products” for the defense industry.

And on March 3, it announced it was releasing 11 of these new gadgets for use in “high frequency, VHF and low-band UHF radar and radio communications”.

The company did not respond to questions from Express Online, including whether any of its missing employees had been working on the defense products.

It neither provided any responses to the latest bizarre conspiracy theory being widely published on the comments sections of newspaper websites and other internet forums.

The comment reads: “It reads: “Have you pieced together the puzzle of missing flight 370 to Beijing China? If not, here are your missing pieces.

Four days after the  flight MH370  disappear, semiconductor patent was approved by the U.S. patent office patent is divided in parts of 20% between five starters. One of the owners is the company itself, Freescale Semiconductor, Austin, Texas (USA), and the other four Chinese employees of the company: Peidong Wang, Zhijun Chen, Cheng and Li Ying Zhijong, all the Suzhou City. And they all passengers of Malaysia Airlines plane disappeared on March 8, according Eternity .

It adds: “Here is your motive for the missing Beijing plane. As all four Chinese members of the Patent were passengers on the missing plane.

Patent holders can alter the proceeds legally by passing wealth to their heirs. “However, they cannot do so until the Patent is approved. So when the plane went missing, the patent had not been approved.”

However, the absurd theory does not add up.

Although a Freescale patent does exist under number US8650327, none of the names listed actually appear on the passenger manifest released by the Malaysian authorities.

If the patent holder dies, the other owners share equally in dividends from the deceased.  If four of the five patentees die, then the patentee left alive gets 100% of the patent. That remaining patent holder is the company Freescale Semiconductor. Who owns Freescale Semiconductor? The answer is: Jacob Rothschild. British billionaire owns the company Blackstone, which in turn owns the company Freescale Semiconductors. Several speculations on the Internet now pay attention to this circumstance. The Rothschilds are a dynasty of financiers and international bankers of German-Jewish origin . The family is from the nineteenth century one of the most influential families of bankers and financiers of Europe.

The search continues for Flight MH370 but speculation surrounding its fate grows by the day.

Sofia Smallstorm – Hour 1 – Chemtrails to Pseudo-Life & Synthetic Biology


Outstanding interview exposing NEW disturbing information on chemtrail emissions, the progression of Morgellons disease, radiation releases and the links to transhumanism. Henrik Palmgren “Creepy, scary of of cou+rse weirdly fascinating at the same time….”


March 19, 2014
Sofia Smallstorm is known for her research on 9/11, which culminated in the documentary 9/11 Mysteries. She is also known for her research on the connection between chemtrails and synthetic biology. With Sofia, we’ll explore a different angle of engineering popularly called “futurism.” Synthetic biology is the new frontier of science, combining genetics, robotics and nano-technology with artificial intelligence, hybridizing natural forms and engineering tissues beyond our wildest dreams. What is the deep agenda behind this science? Sofia talks about the presence of Morgellons disease in humans, which illustrates what nanotechnology is capable of. She also elaborates on the scope of planetary engineering and how much of planetary life it includes. We’ll hear about radiation biology and bacteria by the name of deinococcus radiodurans that may be important to transhumanists in the near future. In the second hour, Sofia speaks more about the explosion of cellular technology and synthetic biology and how these may be used to create life forms and change the world as we know it. How would our world be organized then? Will we turn ourselves over to machines or will we become technological hybrids?

Dane Wigington ~ Geoengineering & Collapse of Civilization ~ Red Ice Creations


 

March 14, 2014
Dane Wigington has an extensive background in solar energy. He is a former employee of Bechtel Power Corp. and was a licensed contractor in California and Arizona. His personal residence was featured in a cover article on the world’s largest renewable energy magazine, Home Power. He owns a 1,600-acre “wildlife preserve” next to Lake Shasta in northern California. Dane focused his efforts on the geo-engineering issue when he began to lose very significant amounts of solar uptake due to ever-increasing “solar obscuration” caused from aircraft spraying. He also noted significant decline in forest health and began testing and research into the geo-engineering issue about a decade ago. He is the lead researcher for geoengineeringwatch.org and has investigated all levels of geo engineering from chemtrails to HAARP. We’ll discuss geoengineering, weather warfare, chemtrails and the collapse of civilization. Dane talks about the chemtrails spraying program and what compounds and particles are in it. Also, we discuss the global power struggle over the control of the weather and how it’s being used as a weapon. In the second hour, we’ll continue to speak about the recent cold snaps and how this has created an imbalance in global weather patterns. Dane also talks about the International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor – the ITER – a new crazy experiment by scientists to create a star in a magnetic bottle. At the end, we tie in the global geopolitical game and the war on Russia.

The UK Is Stripping ‘Terrorist Suspects’ of Citizenship — It’s a Dangerous Precedent for the Rest of the World


Note: Now the UK and US are egregiously creating policy’s that mirror Nazi Germany’s campaign against Jews…only now it’s Muslims. How long before it’s you and I they’re coming for? Are we going to stand by and allow this to happen before it’s too late, or has humanity learned it’s lessons from history?

Excerpt: “Revoking someone’s citizenship obviously removes a number of the obstacles to killing, kidnapping or torturing them, which might otherwise prove inconvenient or embarrassing to supporters of the US-led war on terror,” Katherine Craig, a lawyer with the UK-based Reprieve

It can open the door to torture, imprisonment and drone assassination.

The British government has turned to a disturbing new tool in its zeal to prosecute the war on terror: stripping the citizenship of those accused of terrorism. Over the past decade, 42 Britons have had their citizenship stripped, according to a count by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism.

The trend, which has overwhelmingly targeted Muslims, puts Britain in the camp of repressive governments like Bahrain, and is taking place on a continent where anti-Muslim sentiment has grown exponentially.

The case of Mahdi Hashi is emblematic. He spends his days languishing in a Manhattan prison, cut off from meaningful human contact. Placed in solitary confinement for 23 hours a day—a practice deemed torture by the United Nations—the 24-year-old Hashi is awaiting trial on terrorism charges. He went on hunger strike in September 2013 to protest solitary confinement and being cut off from easy contact with his family.

The U.S. government accuses Hashi of being trained by al Shabaab, an Islamist militant group based in Somalia.

Most of his life has been spent in England, where he encountered harassment from British intelligence, which pressured him unsuccessfully to become an informant. Hashi, a British citizen, left the country in 2009 to see his ailing grandmother in Somalia. But in August 2012, Hashi was detained and allegedly tortured by security forces in Djibouti, interrogated by American intelligence agents, and then held for weeks in secret. When he disappeared in the East African country that borders Somalia, his family appealed to the British government. But no help was forthcoming—because Hashi wasn’t a British citizen anymore. After months of nobody knowing where he was, Hashi turned up in an American court in December 2012.

Hashi was stripped of his citizenship by the United Kingdom in the summer of 2012 because, the government says, his continued status as a citizen is “not conducive to the public good.” That’s official British code for being a suspected terrorist. The UK has stripped the citizenship of at least 16 others on national security grounds. There are no judicial hearings and they are given no opportunity to defend themselves. The British government is now trying to expand its power in order to legally make a person stateless.

Most of those left without citizenship in Britain are Muslims. Critics of the policy say it’s one more pernicious example of how Britain, like the U.S., has exploited the war on terror to target Muslim communities.

Hashi’s supporters say the move by British Home Secretary Theresa May effectively left him stateless, marooned with no home country. His supporters say that Somalia did not permit dual citizenship at that time (the laws have since changed), so Hashi gave up his Somali citizenship when he obtained British citizenship after his family moved to the country and successfully applied for asylum. (A spokesman for the Home Secretary said the office does not comment on individual cases.) One immigration lawyer told the BBCthat under the law, it is “not necessary for the person to hold another nationality before losing UK citizenship, provided they were deemed eligible to seek a passport from another country.”

Hashi’s predicament is shared by a Vietnam-born British citizen only known as B2 and reportedly eight others. Great Britain revoked B2’s citizenship in 2011 after accusing him of training with Al Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula in Yemen. B2’s lawyers argued that the act violated British law because he was left stateless. But a UK court of appeals decision upheld the citizenship stripping decision, arguing that Vietnamese authorities were incorrect in not recognizing B2’s citizenship, and that Britain could strip him of citizenship. The court ruled that Britain could make a person de facto stateless, but not de jure stateless.

The UK is a signatory to the UN Convention on the Reduction of Statelessness, which prohibits making a person stateless. But in a reservation attached to its treaty signing, Britain said it reserved the right to make someone stateless if the person has “conducted himself in a manner seriously prejudicial to the vital interests” to the country. That language, though, has not been applied to any of the people whose citizenship has been revoked. The top British court ruled in October 2013 that the Home Secretary could not strip the citizenship of an Iraqi man accused of terrorism because it would make him stateless—adding to a confusing series of court decisions.

But now, Home Secretary May, the head of the British government department that sets immigration policy, is pushing hard for a change that would allow her to unilaterally strip a person’s citizenship even if it leaves the person stateless. In January, she inserted a clause into immigration legislation that would give her the power to make a person stateless. The clause passed the British legislature’s lower chamber on January 30 by an overwhelming vote of 297 to 34.

“Those who threaten this country’s security put us all at risk,” Immigration Minister Mark Harper said then. “Citizenship is a privilege, not a right. These proposals will strengthen the home secretary’s powers to ensure that very dangerous individuals can be excluded if it is in the public interest to do so.”

While the measure, which is backed by the Deputy Prime Minister, is aimed at suspected terrorists, it leaves millions of people at risk of being made stateless unilaterally. The UK has said its increased use of its citizenship stripping powers is in part due to Britons going to fight in the Syrian civil war.

“Stripping your own people of their citizenship is a hallmark of oppressive and desperate regimes. Rendering them stateless is lawless and shortsighted,” Bella Sankey, policy director of the British civil liberties group Liberty, told the Bureau of Investigative Journalism in December 2013. “Where suspicions exist public safety is best served by criminal investigations, not trampling on due process and trashing our reputation on the global stage.”

Theresa May has been responsible for 37 of the cases. Those targeted by the process are informed by a letter signed by May. There is no judicial process to make the determination—it’s done unilaterally. In most cases, the person is out of the country when informed his citizenship is no longer valid. This makes it harder to appeal the decision. And in cases where national security is invoked, the Special Immigration Appeals Court hears the case, where a lawyer and his client are barred from seeing secret evidence the government points to in justifying the decision to remove citizenship.

The case of Hashi points to the U.S. and UK’s high level of cooperation in prosecuting the war on terror. Hashi was put on the American empire’s conveyor belt, shuffled from U.S. allied-Djibouti to a Manhattan prison after having his rights stripped away from the country he called home. As the Nation’s Aviva Stahl reported,Hashi’s case raises the question of whether the U.S. and Britain are cooperating so that when the UK strips a person of citizenship, the U.S. can more easily target the person.

“Revoking someone’s citizenship obviously removes a number of the obstacles to killing, kidnapping or torturing them, which might otherwise prove inconvenient or embarrassing to supporters of the US-led war on terror,” Katherine Craig, a lawyer with the UK-based Reprieve, told Stahl. Indeed, there are two known cases where the U.S. assassinated Britons who had their citizenship stripped. A British-Lebanese man Bilal al-Berjawi, along with his British-Egyptian friend Mohamed Sakr, were both killed in separate drone strikes in Somalia. The U.S. accused both of fighting with al Shabaab.

Britain’s GCHQ, the equivalent of the National Security Agency, has been accused of passing along signals intelligence to the U.S. for use in targeting people for assassinations by drone. And British citizens locked up in Guantanamo Bay have accused the UK of cooperating with the U.S. on their detention and torture.

The British campaign of revoking citizenship is analogous to Bahrain’s similar campaign. The dictatorship that runs the country has targeted members of the marginalized Shiite community. In November 2012, the Bahraini regime announced that it would strip the citizenship of 31 activists,making some of them stateless.

Last September, another country joined the fray when a Dominican Republic court issued a ruling stripping the citizenship of thousands of migrant workers and their descendants, most of them Haitians. And elsewhere in Europe, the virulently anti-Muslim politician Geert Wilders has made similar suggestions. Wilders, currently a member of parliament, has suggested stripping Moroccan immigrants to the Netherlands of their citizenship if they commit a crime. He recently created a stir when he told supporters he wanted to ensure there were “fewer Moroccans” in his country.

Meanwhile, Home Secretary Theresa May’s move to expand her citizenship-stripping powers has sparked controversy in Great Britain. A group of lawmakers who are part of the Joint Committee on Human Rights issued a report in early Marchwarning that May’s proposals to strip citizenship even if it made a person stateless could be illegal under international law.

But even if May’s new proposal is shot down, the Home Secretary still has the right to strip dual-nationals of citizenship. She seems bent on using that power to the fullest extent.

JP Morgan bankruptcy lawyer killed in hit & run


Joseph GiampapaThe banker suicide saga has just reached a new level as a top level JP Morgan attorney has been exterminated in a hit & run incident involving a minivan.

JPM attorney Joseph Giampapa was killed over the weekend when he was struck by a minivan in a hit and run incident. Giampapa was reportedly hit and thrown 150 ft and was pronounced dead at the scene. No charges have been filed.

It gets better: Giampapa was JP Morgan’s top commercial bankruptcy lawyer (SVP).
Somehow we suspect the incident was not inflicted by a soccer mom.

The Government Is a Hit Man: Uber, Tesla and Airbnb Are in Its Crosshairs


San Francisco taxi drivers show their opposition to Uber which taxi drivers say is operating illegally in San Francisco
San Francisco taxi drivers protest Uber, which taxi drivers say is operating illegally in San Francisco, July 30, 2013. Beck Diefenbach—Reuters

The real losers are not just the next generation of innovators but also customers who lose out on more ways of getting what they need or want.

What the invisible hand of free-market innovation giveth, the dead hand of politically motivated regulation tryeth desperately to take away.

That’s the only way to describe what’s happening to three wildly innovative and popular products: the award-winning electric car Tesla, taxi-replacement service Uber and hotel alternative Airbnb. These companies are not only revolutionizing their industries via cutting-edge technology and customer-empowering distribution, they’re also running afoul of interest groups that are quick to use political muscle to maintain market share and the status quo.

The battle between what historian Burton W. Folsom calls “market entrepreneurs” and “political entrepreneurs” is an old and ugly one, dating back to the earliest days of the American experiment. Market entrepreneurs make their money by offering customers a good or new service at a good or new price. Political entrepreneurs make their money the old-fashioned way: they use the government to rig markets and kneecap real and potential competitors. In his great 1987 book The Myth of the Robber Barons, Folsom discusses how the 19th century steamboat pioneer Robert Fulton quickly went from a market entrepreneur to a political one by securing a 30-year monopoly from the New York legislature for all steamboat traffic in the Empire State.

Especially in today’s sluggish economy, it’s more important than ever that market innovators win out over crony capitalists. Letting markets work to find new ways of delivering goods and services isn’t just better for customers in the short term, it’s the only way to unleash the innovation that ultimately propels long-term economic growth. After all, no country has ever regulated its way out of a recession.

Tesla has done the unthinkable not once but twice: First, it built an electric car that people actually want to buy despite a price tag north of $70,000 for its cheapest models. Second, it has the temerity to sell directly to its wealthy customers rather than subjecting them to the ritualized hell known as auto dealerships. But because auto dealers account for as much as 20% of state sales taxes, their wishes often become legislators’ commands. At the top of their wish list? Don’t let carmakers sell directly to customers. The most glaring example of protectionism just took place in New Jersey, whose legislature added even more burdens to rules that already banned the direct sales of cars to customers. Now Teslas effectively can’t be sold in New Jersey, reports the New York Times, all in the name of ensuring consumer safety and protecting competition. News flash: Anyone who can afford a $70,000 car doesn’t need much protecting. And if you’re ready to believe car dealers when they argue that incredibly complicated rules making it impossible for new companies to enter their market are about protecting competition, I’ve got an expensive undercoating package I want to sell you.

The app-driven car service Uber, which bills itself as “everyone’s car service” and connects drivers and riders in minutes, presents a similar threat to traditional taxi and ride services in the 30-plus U.S. cities in which it operates. Rather than fight for customers by cutting fares, increasing the number of cabs or improving services, taxi commissioners and city councils from San Francisco to New York are instead trying to regulate Uber out of business on the grounds that it provides unfair and unsafe competition.

Never mind that Uber riders get to instantly rate their experience in a way no cab passenger ever does (just as amazingly, drivers get to rate passengers!). At the state level, California has already instituted a bevy of regulations on Uber, Lyft and other new ride-sharing services. These include mandatory criminal-background checks for drivers, licensing via public-utilities commissions, and driver-training programs. Last year, Washington, D.C., officials unsuccessfully tried to squeeze out Uber with regulations on the types of cars that could carry passengers, what sorts of credit-card processing machines could be used and how the company’s app operates.

Airbnb, a website that allows people to rent everything from vacation homes to spare couches for short-term stays, works great for everyone but conventional hoteliers and cities trying to bilk travelers for tourist taxes. Operating in 192 countries and typically showing hundreds of thousands of offerings, Airbnb has faced stiff regulation in towns supposedly famous for their weirdness and openness to lifestyle experimentation, such as Austin, which charges hosts an annual licensing fee and limits the number of participants, and Portland, Ore., which has banned the service in residential neighborhoods. In New York City, rent-control advocates are teaming up with hospitality-industry heavyweights to try and shut down Airbnb and similar services.

If mobsters were pulling these sorts of stunts, we’d recognize the attacks on new ways of doing business for what they are: protection rackets, with state regulators rather than professional hit men creating and enforcing rules to benefit well-connected businessmen. The real losers are not just the next generation of innovators but also customers who lose out on more ways of getting what they need or want.

Folsom’s study of political and market entrepreneurs also suggests that political entrepreneurs are ultimately unsuccessful. Indeed, Fulton claimed in 1817 that his monopoly meant no one could ferry passengers to New York City from neighboring states. A young Cornelius Vanderbilt was hired by a New Jersey businessman to challenge Fulton not in a court of law but on the Hudson River, ferrying passengers from Elizabeth, N.J., and Gotham. Vanderbilt cheekily flew a flag from his ship that read, “New Jersey must be free.” While evading capture, Vanderbilt lowered prices and changed the business climate.

It turns out that New Jersey must be free again — to sell Teslas. And New Yorkers should be free to rent out their rooms if they want to. And Uber to drive you where you want to go. The invisible hand of free markets shouldn’t have to spend so much of its time slapping away the dead hand of political entrepreneurship.

Karen Hudes Exposes Another “Species” Hiding in the Vatican [video]


Okay, I complained that Karen has maintained there are no extraterrestrials, and now she’s exposed the coneheads in a way that some people may find believable. Is this progress?  Maybe it is. Or maybe Karen just killed any credibility she had.  ~ BP

This is so nuts, it’s hard to believe but it’s true that she said this — Former World Bank Sr. Counsel Says That There is An Existence of a Second Species on Earth — Hiding at the Vatican!

This is so nuts, it’s hard to believe but it’s true that she said this. Karen Hudes was being interviewed by Future Money Trends when midway through the interview about conspiracies concerning global economy, she reveals the aliens that have been hiding at the Vatican. WHAAT?? When executive professionals such as Karen begin speaking out about these coming events, we need to start paying closer attention.

Karen Hudes is a graduate of Yale Law School and she worked in the legal department of the World Bank for more than 20 years.  In fact, when she was fired for blowing the whistle on corruption inside the World Bank, she held the position of Senior Counsel.

Future Money Trends: “Okay Karen, you’re an attorney, you worked for the World Bank for 20 years, what your saying is on the fringe of conspiracy, it sounds crazy so… I mean obviously you have had to come to terms with this. What have you seen that has made you so confident to actually say this stuff publicly?”

For the time-constrained Karen’s alien disclosure begins approx. 23:00 into the video.

The agency that employs these people is called the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group. (JTRIG)

 

The core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are to:

 

1. To inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets.
2. To use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable.

 

These are some of the actual pages from the JTRIG training document: “The Art of Deception: Training for Online Covert Operations.”

We have compassion and love for individuals who might feel that being a paid troll is their only option. We would invite them to break free from their slave masters and join us in creating the new paradigm.  At the Fix the World Organization, we have a team of living human beings that field through all comments and emails daily. We keep a record of the names, email addresses, and IP addresses, of all that are perceived to be malicious. Many of the bloggers and positive change agents are friends. We talk, compare notes, and share this list of paid trolls with each other.

 

To my fellow bloggers and change agents, I hope this helps combat the negativity.
To the people who follow our work, I hope this helps you spot a troll and call them out into the light.

 

THE TRUTH HAS BEEN REVEALED. THE POWER STRUCTURE IS SHIFTING. THE PEOPLE HAVE THE POWER.

Yes, There Are Paid Government Trolls On Social Media, Blogs, Forums And Websites


February 26th, 2014

Troll Warning - Photo by Gil

Do you want solid proof that paid government shills are targeting websites, blogs, forums and social media accounts?  For years, many have suspected that government trolls have been systematically causing havoc all over the Internet, but proving it has been difficult.  But now thanks to documents leaked by Edward Snowden and revealed by Glenn Greenwald, we finally have hard evidence that western governments have been doing this.  As you will see below, a UK intelligence outfit known as the Government Communications Headquarters, through a previously secret unit known as the Joint Threat Research Intelligence Group, has been systematically attempting “to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse”.  This should be deeply disturbing to anyone that values free speech on the Internet.

It isn’t just that the British government is trying to influence what people are thinking.  The reality is that this is far bigger than a mere propaganda campaign.  As Greenwald recently noted on his new website, the “integrity of the Internet itself” is at stake…

By publishing these stories one by one, our NBC reporting highlighted some of the key, discrete revelations: the monitoring of YouTube and Blogger, the targeting of Anonymous with the very same DDoS attacks they accuse “hacktivists” of using, the use of “honey traps” (luring people into compromising situations using sex) and destructive viruses. But, here, I want to focus and elaborate on the overarching point revealed by all of these documents: namely, that these agencies are attempting to control, infiltrate, manipulate, and warp online discourse, and in doing so, are compromising the integrity of the internet itself.

So what techniques are the British using to control and manipulate discourse on the Internet?  According to Greenwald, the documents that Snowden has uncovered show that they are willing to sink to despicable lows in order to get the results that they desire…

Among the core self-identified purposes of JTRIG are two tactics: (1) to inject all sorts of false material onto the internet in order to destroy the reputation of its targets; and(2) to use social sciences and other techniques to manipulate online discourse and activism to generate outcomes it considers desirable. To see how extremist these programs are, just consider the tactics they boast of using to achieve those ends: “false flag operations” (posting material to the internet and falsely attributing it to someone else), fake victim blog posts (pretending to be a victim of the individual whose reputation they want to destroy), and posting “negative information” on various forums.

The following is a list of Internet infiltration techniques that were listed on one particular slide that Snowden leaked…

-Infiltration Operation

-Ruse Operation

-Set Piece Operation

-False Flag Operation

-False Rescue Operation

-Disruption Operation

-Sting Operation

You can check out this slide for yourself right here.

There is also evidence that the Canadian government has been involved in this sort of thing as well.  The following comes from Natural News

You’ve probably run into them before — those seemingly random antagonizers who always end up diverting the conversation in an online chat room or article comment section away from the issue at hand, and towards a much different agenda. Hot-button issues like illegal immigration, the two-party political system, the “war on terror” and even alternative medicine are among the most common targets of such attackers, known as internet “trolls” or “shills,” who in many cases are nothing more than paid lackeys hired by the federal government and other international organizations to sway and ultimately control public opinion.

Several years ago, Canada’s CTV News aired a short segment about how its own government had been exposed for hiring secret agents to monitor social media and track online conversations, as well as the activities of certain dissenting individuals. This report, which in obvious whitewashing language referred to such activities as the government simply “weighing in and correcting” allegedly false information posted online, basically admitted that the Canadian government had assumed the role of secret online police.

You can see a video news report about this activity up in Canada right here.

Are you disturbed yet?

You should be.

So what kind of people are the governments of the western world targeting online?

Well, when it comes to the U.S. government, all you have to do is to look at their official documents to see who they consider the “problems” to be.  For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “72 Types Of Americans That Are Considered ‘Potential Terrorists’ In Official Government Documents“.

Sadly, the reality of the matter is that the days of the free and open Internet are numbered.  The governments of the world are increasing their control over the Internet with each passing day, and eventually a time will likely come when we will not be able to communicate openly like this any longer.

Things have gotten so bad in the U.S. already that even Google is spooked

A recent court decision that endorsed a broad view of the Federal Communications Commission’s authority over the Internet has Google and other Web companies nervous.

In closed-door meetings with regulators and Capitol Hill staff, Google’s lawyers have said they’re worried how the FCC may use its newfound powers, according to multiple people familiar with the meetings.

The extent of the FCC’s authority over Google and other Web services remains unclear, and the current FCC has given no indication that it is interested in pushing aggressive new regulations. But the possibility that the commission could begin telling Google how to organize its search results or handle its users’ data is enough to spook the company’s army of Washington lobbyists.

And this is just the beginning.

If you think that the control freaks that are running things now are bad, just wait until you see the next generation of control freaks.

For example, there is one prominent student writer at Harvard that apparently believes that free speech at her university should be abolished and that any professor that does not advocate for her politically-correct version of “justice” should be fired

A student writer at Harvard University is raising eyebrows after publishing her belief that free speech on campus should be abolished and professors with opposing views be fired.

Sandra Korn, a senior who writes a column for the Harvard Crimson newspaper, thinks radical leftism is the only permissible political philosophy, and the First Amendment only hinders colleges from brainwashing students with her viewpoint.

“Let’s give up on academic freedom in favor of justice,” states the subtitle of her Feb. 18 column, in which she insists Harvard stop guaranteeing students and professors the right to hold controversial views and conduct research putting liberalism in a negative light.

“If our university community opposes racism, sexism, and heterosexism, why should we put up with research that counters our goals?” Korn asks.

This is what control freaks always want.

They always want to shut down those that are presenting opposing views.

They don’t believe in free speech and a “marketplace of ideas”.  Rather, they believe in shoving what they believe down the rest of our throats.

And now we have solid proof that the governments of the western world are paying people to manipulate discourse on social media, blogs, forums and websites.

So will there be great outrage over this, or will the apathetic public just roll over and ignore this like they have so many other times the past few years?

A Corporate Coup in Disguise The Trans-Pacific Partnership would create a virtually permanent corporate rule over the people.

What if our national leaders told us that communities across America had to eliminate such local programs as Buy Local, Buy American, Buy Green, etc. to allow foreign corporations to have the right to make the sale on any products purchased with our tax dollars? This nullification of our people’s right to direct expenditures is just one of the horror stories in the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP).

This is a super-sized NAFTA, the 1994 trade scam rammed through Congress by the entire corporate establishment. NAFTA promised the “glories of globalization”: prosperity across our land. Unfortunately, corporations got the gold. We got the shaft — thousands of factories closed, millions of middle-class jobs went south, and the economies of hundreds of towns and cities were shattered.

Twenty years later, the gang that gave us NAFTA is back with the TPP, a “trade deal” that mostly does not deal with trade. Of the 29 chapters in this document, only five cover traditional trade matters! The other chapters amount to a devilish “partnership” for corporate protectionism:

—Food safety. Any of our government’s food safety regulations (on pesticide levels, bacterial contamination, fecal exposure, toxic additives, etc.) and food labeling laws (organic, country-of-origin, animal-welfare approved, GMO-free, etc.) that are stricter than “international standards” could be ruled as “illegal trade barriers.” Our government would then have to revise our consumer protections to comply with weaker standards.

—Fracking. Our Department of Energy would lose its authority to regulate exports of natural gas to any TPP nation. This would create an explosion of the destructive fracking process across our land, for both foreign and U.S. corporations could export fracked gas from America to member nations without any DOE review of the environmental and economic impacts on local communities — or on our national interests.

—Jobs. US corporations would get special foreign-investor protections to limit the cost and risk of relocating their factories to low-wage nations that sign onto this agreement. So, an American corporation thinking about moving a factory would know it is guaranteed a sweetheart deal if it moves operations to a TPP nation like Vietnam. This would be an incentive for corporate chieftains to export more of our middle-class jobs.

—Drug prices. Big Pharma would be given more years of monopoly pricing on each of their patents and be empowered to block distribution of cheaper generic drugs. Besides artificially keeping everyone’s prices high, this would be a death sentence to many people suffering from cancer, HIV, AIDS, tuberculosis and other treatable diseases in impoverished lands.

—Banksters. Wall Street and the financial giants in other TPP countries would make out like bandits. The deal explicitly prohibits transaction taxes (such as the proposed Robin Hood Tax here) that would shut down speculators who have repeatedly triggered financial crises and economic crashes around the world. It restricts “firewall” reforms that separate consumer banking from risky investment banking. It could roll back reforms that governments adopted to fix the extreme bank-deregulation regimen that caused Wall Street’s 2007 crash. And it provides an escape from national rules that would limit the size of “too-big-to-fail” behemoths.

—Internet freedom. Corporations hoping to lock up and monopolize the Internet failed in Congress last year to pass their repressive “Stop Online Piracy Act.” However, they’ve slipped SOPA’s most pernicious provisions into TPP. The deal would also transform Internet service providers into a private, Big Brother police force, empowered to monitor our “user activity,” arbitrarily take down our content and cut off our access to the Internet. To top that off, consumers could be assessed mandatory fines for something as benign as sending your mom a recipe you got off of a paid site.

—Public services. TPP rules would limit how governments regulate such public services as utilities, transportation and education — including restricting policies meant to ensure broad or universal access to those essential needs. One insidious rule says that member countries must open their service sectors to private competitors, which would allow the corporate provider to cherry-pick the profitable customers and sink the public service.

Lori Wallach, director of Global Trade Watch, correctly calls the Trans-Pacific Partnership “a corporate coup d’etat.” Nations that join must conform their laws and rules to TPP’s strictures, effectively supplanting U.S. sovereignty and canceling our people’s right to be self-governing. Worse, it creates virtually permanent corporate rule over us.

Is it impossible to stop? Nope. There is also a broad, well-organized and politically experienced coalition of grassroots groups, which has stopped other deals and will do it again. We the people can protect our democratic rights from this threat of corporate usurpation. Check out globaltradewatch.org.

Angry Residents Wave Pitchforks, Torches In Protest Of Mayor’s Crackdown On Homelessness


02/14/2014
 


A group of fired-up activists in Portland, Ore., who were tired of seeing homeless people being mistreated staged the kind of protest that will be difficult for the mayor to ignore.

An estimated 4,000 people sleep on the streets of Portland, Ore., on any given night and, since last summer, life has become increasingly difficult for them.

So, a group of protesters descended upon Portland City Hall on Tuesday night carrying pitchforks and torches to “shame the mayor into action,” organizer Jessie Sponberg told The Oregonian.

Portland appears to be gearing up to revive a bill that would allow police to rouse homeless people sitting on sidewalks, The Oregonian reported at the end of last year. In July, Mayor Charlie Hales launched an effort to clear out homeless campsites, according to the Portland Mercury.

Sweeping campsites often exacerbates the situation for people living on the streets because the police discard homeless people’s few possessions, which may include their only warm clothing and blankets, advocates noted in a Change.org petition.

But Hales told The Oregonian in August that he plans on balancing the crackdown on homeless camps with increasing funding for overnight shelters. But he didn’t commit to a spending figure.

“This is not about homelessness,” the mayor told the paper about the anti-camping law. “It’s about lawlessness.”

Hordes of advocates have continued to voice their concerns about the extensive measures, but Film the Police Portland — a grassroots advocacy group — took their protest beyond just handing out petitions.

The group of about 50 protesters set up shop at City Hall on Tuesday, waving pitchforks and torches. They turned the surrounding gardens into a cemetery scene to signify the number of homeless people who have frozen to death, Sponberg wrote on his Facebook page.

They said they hope their efforts will urge Mayor Hales to stop criminalizing homelessness.

“You know, the cops are out there sweeping out these camps. Destroying the closest thing to a normal life that these people have managed to carve out in this crazy world,” Sponberg wrote. “Throwing everything they have into the garbage. And it’s not that the cops are doing this because they are jerks. They may be jerks, but they get a pass on this one. In this case they are just doing their jobs, following city policy, as per established by Mayor Hales.”

Profiting off polluting: How Big Oil is defrauding states to clean up toxic fuel leaks. Oil companies are being paid twice to deal with their own messes

Profiting off polluting: How Big Oil is defrauding states to clean up toxic fuel leaks

To anyone who drinks water, the rusted, leaky underground tanks storing underground fuel are the “single largest threat” to its safety. To major oil companies, they’re an opportunity to profit.

Reuters has an exclusive report on the despicable fraud being carried out by Big Oil. Call it “double-dipping”: When toxic, potentially carcinogenic leaks of gas and diesel threaten aquifers, the companies accept government funds to clean it up. Then, they apply for a second payout from the insurance companies. And all the big guys, it seems, are going for it: Chevron, Exxon, ConocoPhillips and Sunoco have agreed to settlements over the past three years totaling over $105 million.

“When I first saw these cases, I thought this is kind of incredible,” said New Mexico Assistant Attorney General Seth Cohen. “The oil companies have, in effect, profited off polluting.”

Here’s more from Reuters on the widespread fraud and the dream team working to expose it:


Approximately 40 states and the District of Columbia have special funds to cover the costs of removing and replacing the old tanks, excavating tainted dirt and pumping out dirty groundwater.

Since 1988, there have been more than half a million leaky tanks reported across the country. Nearly 80,000 spills still are waiting to be cleaned up.

In the New Mexico settlement last September, court documents show the origin of the case against Chevron was a sealed lawsuit filed by [Thomas] Schruben and [Dennis] Pantazis’ team in 2009 under a state law designed to protect taxpayers from fraud.

One document from 2006, for example, shows Chevron received a check for $19,000 from the state to clean up and monitor a leak at a gas station in the small, southern New Mexico town of Artesia. On the application to receive money from the tank fund, the company checked “No” next to the question: “Do you have insurance?”

The lawsuit accused Chevron of receiving insurance payouts to deal with many kinds of environmental contamination, including policies that would have covered leaks at the gas station in Artesia – a fact it kept hidden from the state.

About 20 more cases across the country are currently pending.

None of the companies, of course, have admitted to having done any of this wittingly. Those who have settled out of court did so on good faith that they simply didn’t realize they had applied twice for cleanup funds. As Reuters points out, the millions paid out in settlements are practically nothing for them. But for cash-strapped states, they’re a major something.
