Corey Goode & Bashar Connection “Everything Will Change” in the fall of 2016


SourceOther Than Earth

by John Turpa, September 18th 2016

In 2014 “Bashar” an extraterrestrial being channeled by Darryl Anka made a startling prediction… “In your upcoming fall of 2016 EVERYTHING will change.
Will everything change this fall of 2016?
There seems to be some interesting data pointing towards something indeed occurring this fall. Perhaps it’s what many call the “October surprise”. Well see.

One major thread of course is this year’s United States presidential elections. There are many drama’s unfolding on this subject in the mainstream media as well as in the alternative media. All you have to do is a quick youtube or Google search of what is happening in this very convoluted and sometimes dizzying display of what our current system is undergoing and perhaps revealing.
Although, this is not the main focus of this article, it is merely a caveat to a very rare prediction from a being who claims to be from another planet and an unlikely connection to a man who claims to be part of the “Secret Space Program”.

Bashar is a being who claims to be from a planet called “Essassani” and is channelled byDarryl Anka. If you know who Bashar is you may have noticed that his main focus is on how we as humans can improve ourselves, love each other and to follow our greatest excitement. He periodically talks about other E.T. races, his home and what is “out there”. 
Although, he rarely goes into predictions.

In 2014 Bashar opened a channel to 3 beings that orbit his planet. These beings identified themselves as Epsilon, Epiphany and Eclipse. Their function is to be a conduit of the “Sassani” people (the beings that live on Essassani) as their “collectiveoversoul” (collective consciousness). These 3 beings describe themselves as spheres that glow in a blue/white light, are approximately 75 miles in diameter and orbit their planet.

During this 2014 channeling they made a striking prediction that in the fall of 2016 “Everything will change”

Now, let’s forward to our present day in 2016. A man named Corey Goodehas made quite an entrance into our own collective consciousness on Earth. In 2015 Corey Goode came out as a whistleblower claiming he was part of a covert Earth based secret space program (SSP). These humans have quite an array of exotic technologies that many of us can barely even dream of. He claims he was part of what he referred to as “The 20 and back program” where an individual of interest is offered to work in one of the SSP’s programs for 20 years, and upon completion of these 20 years, their age is reversed, their memory is wiped and they are taken back in time moments after they left for their tour of duty 20 years ago. In the past few months others have come out and are testifying that they were also part of the SSP in one way or another.

Now here’s where it gets interesting…Corey Goode also claims he is in contact with “The Sphere Being Alliance” (SBA). The SBA include the “Blue Avians”, who have humanoid bodies and bird-like faces, the “Golden Triangle head beings”, who also have humanoid bodies with inverted triangular shaped heads, and the “Sphere Beings” who are blue spherical beings and can be the size of a baseball to the size of Jupiter in an instant.

According to Corey Goode, these “Sphere Beings” are all over our solar system, especially around Earth. They are here to postpone a solar event giving us time to bring our planet into balance through a “Full Disclosure” initiative implemented by we the people and what is called the “Earth Alliance”. Throughout Corey Goode’s testimony, he has been briefing us on massive movements by the Earth Alliance groups to topple the power elite a.k.a the cabal, illuminati or syndicate groups. He also is saying that these movements are escalating and are reaching a tipping point. The times we are in now are quite important according to Goode.
Now lets tie these two threads together. The most interesting aspect of these two threads, is that they both involve Sphere Beings that take on very similar characteristics and both descriptions of these sphere beings are mainly defined by the color blue. Bashar, (via 3 sphere beings called Epsilon, Epiphany and Eclipse) in 2014 stated that in the fall of 2016 “Everything will change”. Corey Goode is in contact with sphere beings and are here to see us through a transitionary period that we are currently undergoing. And…we are right on the doorstep of the fall of 2016.
What will happen? Will everything change? Are these two threads related? Perhaps we’ll find out soon enough.
Here’s a transcript of the Bashar channeling from 2014. Also there are  a couple of links that provide a video of this channeling and the original transcript at the bottom of the page.

Bashar Channeling 2014 Transcript
“Attention, Attention, Attention!
We will allow this transmission to shift it’s domain,- one moment”-
(deep breaths)
Attention, attention, attention!
We are Epsilon, we are one of three. There is Epsilon, there is Epiphany, there is Eclipse.
We are three and we are one. You would understand us as collective oversoul of the Sassani society.
ALL the individuals on their world we reflect in three parts, we are trinary consciousness expressed as Epsilon, Epiphany and Eclipse. We are also embodied in physical form. Each of us is an artificial sphere 75 of your miles in diameter in a trinary stable orbit around the planet of Essassani. We glow with blue and white light that is reflective of the matrix of our consciousness.

You would think of us as orbiting super computers. We are more than that. There are no others like us! No others shall channel us but this channel, for this channel has allowed the transmissions for 30 of your years to pass through his form.
That is the 1st stage of allowing connection to the Essassani oversoul expressed in this 3 parts structure in our orbit around the world forming stability for the Essassani. As you have been told we have no moon as you do, but we are the stabilizing factor, the artificial moons that are 10% of the diameter, 1 % of the diameter of the entire world itself, but 10% of the diameter of the trinary structure as a whole. We resonate and vibrate, you would feel and perceive that we are glasslike spheres made of hundreds of layers, hundreds of thin layers, each thin layer being 300 feet thick, composed of 1200 layers, composing 75 of your miles in diameter, coruscating and cascading with blue-white light that is the representation of the flickering of our consciousness and the expression of our being. I am Epsilon and together with Epiphany and Eclipse we are the stabilizing consciousness of the entire Essassani oversoul. It has now been 30 years in your terms of counting of transmission to your world for ours.
In your year of 2016 it will be 33 of your years, a transformational point in the fall of your year of 2016 prior to your country’s new coming election EVERYTHING will change!
Attention, Attention, Attention!
This transmission will be given 3 times over the course of this event. In your upcoming fall of 2016 EVERYTHING will change! You are crossing a threshold that you have been preparing for many thousands of years. We are privileged to be the ones to announce to you this upcoming threshold in your collective consciousness, for we relate to you as a collective consciousness and read in your collective consciousness this upcoming change of great transformation. In your upcoming fall of 2016 EVERYTHING will change! You have 2 ½ years to express yourself in the way that is most in alignment with your being, for after that threshold EVERYTHING will change.
Attention, Attention, Attention!
(Deep breath… Bashar: “Have a good day”)”

Hillary Bagged and Perp Walked! Busted without the DoJ, how? Who’s next? Gratitude to US Special Forces (2 Video’s)


Note: Hillary bagged and PERP walked…omg, talk about PRICELESS!! Like many other truthers, much of my work over the last six years as a blogger has been dedicated exposing truth that would lead to the arrest of members from the Luciferian Cabal and Babylonian Money Magicisn’s perpetuating endless wars, child/human sex trafficking, ritual abuse, financial debt slavery, drug wars and more.

From my perspective, the fact that Hillary was arrested on 9/11 is a highly symbolic gesture from Special Forces that they’re now taking-out the top cabal members and their minions. Be patient, keep the faith and don’t pay attention to the distractions. The media will continue to spin Hillary’s illness while parading body doubles, or clones before the public.

Fortunately a soul-less clone cannot take on the soul contracts of 300+million Americans, and I’m not sure that a “souled” clone can accept soul contracts on that scale either. That said, if recent information from Simon Parkes is correct, Hillary refuses to allow her soul to be downloaded to her clone.

ps…Very appropriate choice of music on the last video, featuring a most excellent ‘live’ rendition of Led Zeppelins “When the Levee Breaks” at the end…dedicated to the Ground Crew, keep on Rock’in!!

Much love to all, {~A~}

Apparently Hillary was ARRESTED, video shows she was handcuffed and forced into the van!


The narrator is focusing on the guy with the phone, he doesn’t appear to see Hillary’s hands are handcuffed behind her back. You can clearly see her hands just above the pole at 2:27. That’s why she stumbled, they weren’t handling her very gently as she stepped off the curb and the lady on her left had a good hold on her arm as if to keep her from running, not prevent her from falling. That’s how a prisoner is held when being transported.

When Grandma’s sick, we put our arm around her shoulder or waist to help them walk. Not tie her hands behind her back, drag her from the curb and shove her into the van.

While everyone’s so focused on her illness, she’s actually being arrested. Talk about slight of hand on media coverage. Have a feeling more revealing pics will surface and go viral.

The narrative below also makes sense if she was being arrested, they apparently had their own assets filming the arrest. Where’s husband, where’s her assistant? Looks like the only person there that knows her is her doctor.

Ohhh my goodness, things just got REAL interesting folks. Remember earlier this year when I said Hillary would be indicted and Bernie would take the election by landslide?  Now it’s making it to the election….

How the CIA Invented and Promoted ‘Conspiracy Theories’ to Discredit Controversial Views Conspiracy theories fill the news, labeled or not.


 

By Ron Unz / Unz Review September 8, 2016

A year or two ago, I saw the much-touted science fiction film Interstellar, and although the plot wasn’t any good, one early scene was quite amusing. For various reasons, the American government of the future claimed that our Moon Landings of the late 1960s had been faked, a trick aimed at winning the Cold War by bankrupting Russia into fruitless space efforts of its own. This inversion of historical reality was accepted as true by nearly everyone, and those few people who claimed that Neil Armstrong had indeed set foot on the Moon were universally ridiculed as “crazy conspiracy theorists.” This seems a realistic portrayal of human nature to me.

Obviously, a large fraction of everything described by our government leaders or presented in the pages of our most respectable newspapers—from the 9/11 attacks to the most insignificant local case of petty urban corruption—could objectively be categorized as a “conspiracy theory” but such words are never applied. Instead, use of that highly loaded phrase is reserved for those theories, whether plausible or fanciful, that do not possess the endorsement stamp of establishmentarian approval.

Put another way, there are good “conspiracy theories” and bad “conspiracy theories,” with the former being the ones promoted by pundits on mainstream television shows and hence never described as such. I’ve sometimes joked with people that if ownership and control of our television stations and other major media outlets suddenly changed, the new information regime would require only a few weeks of concerted effort to totally invert all of our most famous “conspiracy theories” in the minds of the gullible American public. The notion that nineteen Arabs armed with box-cutters hijacked several jetliners, easily evaded our NORAD air defenses, and reduced several landmark buildings to rubble would soon be universally ridiculed as the most preposterous “conspiracy theory” ever to have gone straight from the comic books into the minds of the mentally ill, easily surpassing the absurd “lone gunman” theory of the JFK assassination.

Even without such changes in media control, huge shifts in American public beliefs have frequently occurred in the recent past, merely on the basis of implied association. In the initial weeks and months following the 2001 attacks, every American media organ was enlisted to denounce and vilify Osama Bin Laden, the purported Islamicist master-mind, as our greatest national enemy, with his bearded visage endlessly appearing on television and in print, soon becoming one of the most recognizable faces in the world. But as the Bush Administration and its key media allies prepared a war against Iraq, the images of the Burning Towers were instead regularly juxtaposed with mustachioed photos of dictator Saddam Hussein, Bin Laden’s arch-enemy. As a consequence, by the time we attacked Iraq in 2003, polls revealed that some 70% of the American public believed that Saddam was personally involved in the destruction of our World Trade Center. By that date I don’t doubt that many millions of patriotic but low-information Americans would have angrily denounced and vilified as a “crazy conspiracy theorist” anyone with the temerity to suggest that Saddam hadnot been behind 9/11, despite almost no one in authority having ever explicitly made such a fallacious claim.

These factors of media manipulation were very much in my mind a couple of years ago when I stumbled across a short but fascinating book published by the University of Texas academic press. The author of Conspiracy Theory in America was Prof. Lance deHaven-Smith, a former president of the Florida Political Science Association. Based on an important FOIA disclosure, the book’s headline revelation was that the CIA was very likely responsible for the widespread introduction of “conspiracy theory” as a term of political abuse, having orchestrated that development as a deliberate means of influencing public opinion.

During the mid-1960s there had been increasing public skepticism about the Warren Commission findings that a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, had been solely responsible for President Kennedy’s assassination, and growing suspicions that top-ranking American leaders had also been involved. So as a means of damage control, the CIA distributed a secret memo to all its field offices requesting that they enlist their media assets in efforts to ridicule and attack such critics as irrational supporters of “conspiracy theories.” Soon afterward, there suddenly appeared statements in the media making those exact points, with some of the wording, arguments, and patterns of usage closely matching those CIA guidelines. The result was a huge spike in the pejorative use of the phrase, which spread throughout the American media, with the residual impact continueing right down to the present day. Thus, there is considerable evidence in support of this particular “conspiracy theory” explaining the widespread appearance of attacks on “conspiracy theories” in the public media.

But although the CIA appears to have effectively manipulated public opinion in order to transform the phrase “conspiracy theory” into a powerful weapon of ideological combat, the author also describes how the necessary philosophical ground had actually been prepared a couple of decades earlier. Around the time of the Second World War, an important shift in political theory caused a huge decline in the respectability of any “conspiratorial” explanation of historical events.

For decades prior to that conflict, one of our most prominent scholars and public intellectuals had been historian Charles Beard, whose influential writings had heavily focused on the harmful role of various elite conspiracies in shaping American policy for the benefit of the few at the expense of the many, with his examples ranging from the earliest history of the United States down to the nation’s entry into WWI. Obviously, researchers never claimed that all major historical events had hidden causes, but it was widely accepted that some of them did, and attempting to investigate those possibilities was deemed a perfectly acceptable academic enterprise.

However, Beard was a strong opponent of American entry into the Second World War, and he was marginalized in the years that followed, even prior to his death in 1948. Many younger public intellectuals of a similar bent also suffered the same fate, or were even purged from respectability and denied any access to the mainstream media. At the same time, the totally contrary perspectives of two European political philosophers, Karl Popper and Leo Strauss, gradually gained ascendancy in American intellectual circles, and their ideas became dominant in public life.

Popper, the more widely influential, presented broad, largely theoretical objections to the very possibility of important conspiracies ever existing, suggesting that these would be implausibly difficult to implement given the fallibility of human agents; what might appear a conspiracy actually amounted to individual actors pursuing their narrow aims. Even more importantly, he regarded “conspiratorial beliefs” as an extremely dangerous social malady, a major contributing factor to the rise of Nazism and other deadly totalitarian ideologies. His own background as an individual of Jewish ancestry who had fled Austria in 1937 surely contributed to the depth of his feelings on these philosophical matters.

Meanwhile, Strauss, a founding figure in modern neo-conservative thought, was equally harsh in his attacks upon conspiracy analysis, but for polar-opposite reasons. In his mind, elite conspiracies were absolutely necessary and beneficial, a crucial social defense against anarchy or totalitarianism, but their effectiveness obviously depended upon keeping them hidden from the prying eyes of the ignorant masses. His main problem with “conspiracy theories” was not that they were always false, but they might often be true, and therefore their spread was potentially disruptive to the smooth functioning of society. So as a matter of self-defense, elites needed to actively suppress or otherwise undercut the unauthorized investigation of suspected conspiracies.

Even for most educated Americans, theorists such as Beard, Popper, and Strauss are probably no more than vague names mentioned in textbooks, and that was certainly true in my own case. But while the influence of Beard seems to have largely disappeared in elite circles, the same is hardly true of his rivals. Popper probably ranks as one of the founders of modern liberal thought, with an individual as politically influential as left-liberal financier George Soros claiming to be his intellectual disciple. Meanwhile, the neo-conservative thinkers who have totally dominated the Republican Party and the Conservative Movement for the last couple of decades often proudly trace their ideas back to Strauss.

So, through a mixture of Popperian and Straussian thinking, the traditional American tendency to regard elite conspiracies as a real but harmful aspect of our society was gradually stigmatized as either paranoid or politically dangerous, laying the conditions for its exclusion from respectable discourse.

By 1964, this intellectual revolution had largely been completed, as indicated by the overwhelmingly positive reaction to the famous article by political scientist Richard Hofstadter critiquing the so-called “paranoid style” in American politics, which he denounced as the underlying cause of widespread popular belief in implausible conspiracy theories. To a considerable extent, he seemed to be attacking straw men, recounting and ridiculing the most outlandish conspiratorial beliefs, while seeming to ignore the ones that had been proven correct. For example, he described how some of the more hysterical anti-Communists claimed that tens of thousands of Red Chinese troops were hidden in Mexico, preparing an attack on San Diego, while he failed to even acknowledge that for years Communist spies had indeed served near the very top of the U.S. government. Not even the most conspiratorially minded individual suggests that all conspiracies are true, merely that some of them might be.

Most of these shifts in public sentiment occurred before I was born or when I was a very young child, and my own views were shaped by the rather conventional media narratives that I absorbed. Hence, for nearly my entire life, I always automatically dismissed all of the so-called “conspiracy theories” as ridiculous, never once even considering that any of them might possibly be true.

To the extent that I ever thought about the matter, my reasoning was simple and based on what seemed like good, solid common sense. Any conspiracy responsible for some important public event must surely have many separate “moving parts” to it, whether actors or actions taken, let us say numbering at least 100 or more. Now given the imperfect nature of all attempts at concealment, it would surely be impossible for all of these to be kept entirely hidden. So even if a conspiracy were initially 95% successful in remaining undetected, five major clues would still be left in plain sight for investigators to find. And once the buzzing cloud of journalists noticed these, such blatant evidence of conspiracy would certainly attract an additional swarm of energetic investigators, tracing those items back to their origins, with more pieces gradually being uncovered until the entire cover-up likely collapsed. Even if not all the crucial facts were ever determined, at least the simple conclusion that there had indeed been some sort of conspiracy would quickly become established.

However, there was a tacit assumption in my reasoning, one that I have since decided was entirely false. Obviously, many potential conspiracies either involve powerful governmental officials or situations in which their disclosure would represent a source of considerable embarrassment to such individuals. But I had always assumed that even if government failed in its investigatory role, the dedicated bloodhounds of the Fourth Estate would invariably come through, tirelessly seeking truth, ratings, and Pulitzers. However, once I gradually began realizing that the media was merely “Our American Pravda” and perhaps had been so for decades, I suddenly recognized the flaw in my logic. If those five—or ten or twenty or fifty—initial clues were simply ignored by the media, whether through laziness, incompetence, or much less venal sins, then there would be absolutely nothing to prevent successful conspiracies from taking place and remaining undetected, perhaps even the most blatant and careless ones.

In fact, I would extend this notion to a general principle. Substantial control of the media is almost always an absolute prerequisite for any successful conspiracy, the greater the degree of control the better. So when weighing the plausibility of any conspiracy, the first matter to investigate is who controls the local media and to what extent.

Let us consider a simple thought-experiment. For various reasons these days, the entire American media is extraordinarily hostile to Russia, certainly much more so than it ever was toward the Communist Soviet Union during the 1970s and 1980s. Hence I would argue that the likelihood of any large-scale Russian conspiracy taking place within the operative zone of those media organs is virtually nil. Indeed, we are constantly bombarded with stories of alleged Russian conspiracies that appear to be “false positives,” dire allegations seemingly having little factual basis or actually being totally ridiculous. Meanwhile, even the crudest sort of anti-Russian conspiracy might easily occur without receiving any serious mainstream media notice or investigation.

This argument may be more than purely hypothetical. A crucial turning point in America’s renewed Cold War against Russia was the passage of the 2012 Magnitsky Act by Congress, punitively targeting various supposedly corrupt Russian officials for their alleged involvement in the illegal persecution and death of an employee of Bill Browder, an American hedge-fund manager with large Russian holdings. However, there’s actually quite a bit of evidence that it was Browder himself who was actually the mastermind and beneficiary of the gigantic corruption scheme, while his employee was planning to testify against him and was therefore fearful of his life for that reason. Naturally, the American media has provided scarcely a single mention of these remarkable revelations regarding what might amount to a gigantic Magnitsky Hoaxof geopolitical significance.

To some extent the creation of the Internet and the vast proliferation of alternative media outlets, including my own small webzine, have somewhat altered this depressing picture. So it is hardly surprising that a very substantial fraction of the discussion dominating these Samizdat-like publications concerns exactly those subjects regularly condemned as “crazy conspiracy theories” by our mainstream media organs. Such unfiltered speculation must surely be a source of considerable irritation and worry to government officials who have long relied upon the complicity of their tame media organs to allow their serious misdeeds to pass unnoticed and unpunished. Indeed, several years ago a senior Obama Administration official argued that the free discussion of various “conspiracy theories” on the Internet was so potentially harmful that government agents should be recruited to “cognitively infiltrate” and disrupt them, essentially proposing a high-tech version of the highly controversial Cointelpro operations undertaken by J. Edgar Hoover’s FBI.

Until just a few years ago I’d scarcely even heard of Charles Beard, once ranked among the towering figures of 20th century American intellectual life. But the more I’ve discovered the number of serious crimes and disasters that have completely escaped substantial media scrutiny, the more I wonder what other matters may still remain hidden. So perhaps Beard was correct all along in recognizing the respectability of “conspiracy theories,” and we should return to his traditional American way of thinking, notwithstanding endless conspiratorial propaganda campaigns by the CIA and others to persuade us that we should dismiss such notions without any serious consideration.

Grandmother with AK-47 saves cops being attacked by street gang


Note: 160 rounds – talk about a badass granny!! Ya think they could at least light her cigarette…lol?!?

grandmaak47

Los Angeles| Officers of the LAPD received some totally unexpected backup yesterday, during a fire fight with local gang members in the Watts neighbourhood, as an elderly lady with an assault rifle showed up and scared the criminals away.

Officers Ricardo Cordova and Frank Cho were responding to a call concerning a presumed drug deal in a parking lot, when they came under fire from members of a local street gang. The policemen rapidly found themselves in a perilous situation, being inferior to their attackers in both numbers and firepower.

Fortunately for them, 79-year old Wendy Robinson was watching the events from her kitchen window and decided to intervene. The elderly woman equipped herself with her personal bulletproof vest and an AK-47 assault rifle, and ran to the officers’ rescue, firing more than 160 rounds in the direction of the assailants, injuring two of them.

“There was ten of twelve of these scumbags, firing with Uzis and shotguns at these two poor officers who had only pistols, so I really had to do something,” she says. “I got my vest and gun, a few extra clips of ammo, and I went out the house. As soon as I began shooting at them, the look on these thugs’ face changed and they began to run for their lives. The policemen also seemed really surprised to see me, but they were definitely relieved when they saw I was there to help them.”

Two of the assailants were injured and were arrested on the site. They were transported to the Martin Luther King community hospital. Their state is considered serious, but doctors don’t fear for their lives.

lapdofficers

The LAPD fears the elderly woman could now face some form of retaliation from the criminals, for helping the police and humiliating them, but the threat doesn’t seem to bother Ms. Robinson at all.

“They told me that these punks might try to attack me because of what I did,” she told reporters. “Well, let them come! I have never been afraid of anyone in my life, and I am not going to start now! These kids think these streets belong to them, but I have been here for 53 years, and I don’t intend to leave. I am ready to defend myself and my house, don’t worry about me.”

The sector of the Watts neighbourhood in which Ms. Robinson lives is known to be dominated by a primarily African-American gang known as the Crips.

They are one of the largest and most violent associations of street gangs in the United States, with an estimated 30,000 to 35,000 members, and have been involved in murders, robberies and drug dealing, among other crimes.

Faced With a Fracking Giant, This Small Town Just Legalized Civil Disobedience


A new first-in-the-nation law will shield residents from arrest as they use direct action to stop fracking-wastewater injection wells.
FrackingWell_650.jpgA tiny community sitting on a 27-square-mile piece of Western Pennsylvania wanted to send a big message to the energy company planning to deposit toxic fracking wastewater under its neighborhoods. And its 700 residents wanted it to be perfectly legal for them to loudly object.

Grant Township had seen what happens when people nationwide take to the streets to protest bullying corporations: Arrests. Lots of them.

So Grant Township planned ahead. Two weeks ago, it passed a law that protects its residents from arrest if they protest Pennsylvania General Energy Company’s (PGE) creation of an injection well.

Residents believe this law is the first in the United States to legalize nonviolent civil disobedience against toxic wastewater injection wells. “We’re doing it to safeguard the residents and protect as many people as possible,” Township Supervisor Stacy Long said.

Long said legalizing direct action is a response to the ongoing problem of rural residents seeing their voices excluded from discussions between state governments and big corporations on issues that have local ramifications.

Like so many other people in communities dealing with fracking and its waste, residents worry the injected wastewater will leak into their drinking-water sources.

PGE wants to repurpose an existing well in Grant Township into a Class II disposal well. These wells are used to deposit toxic wastewater deep underground. The wastewater is a byproduct of oil and gas drilling and can contain toxic metals, benzene, and radioactive materials, according to the Natural Resources Defense Council. The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimates 180,000 Class II injection wells currently operate, injecting more than 2 billion gallons of brine a day. About 20 percent are disposal wells.

While the EPA claims injection wells are safe, the toxic contents of the wells don’t always remain in the rock layer where they’ve been deposited. A ProPublica review found structural problems reported for 17,000 wells between 2007 and 2010.

The Grant Township community relies entirely on private wells and springs for their drinking water, Long said. Like so many other people in communities dealing with fracking and its waste, residents worry the injected wastewater will leak into their drinking-water sources.

The town’s new law has yet to be tested in courts, but it’s just the latest legislative move in a three-year battle Grant Township has had with PGE since the energy company first announced its plans to convert a well for fracked wastewater disposal.

The community enlisted the aid of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund (CELDF), which helped it to pass an ordinance in 2014 that established a community bill of rights guaranteeing clean air and water and excluding injection wells. PGE sued, and in 2015 a judge ruled that the town couldn’t ban an injection well.

“It’s going to have to be bodies in the road to stop those trucks if the courts fail us.”

Next, the community changed its municipality status from a second-class township to a home-rule municipality in the hopes that reinstating the ban against the injection well as a new type of municipality would give it more legal power. Long said home-rule municipalities have a greater say in decisions that are made about their community.

“The existing system is not providing communities with the legal tools to protect themselves,” said Chad Nicholson, Pennsylvania community organizer with CELDF.

PGE needs one more permit before it can create the injection well. The company already received a permit from the EPA but is still waiting on one from the Department of Environmental Protection. The department gave PGE a permit in 2015 but revoked it a few months later, saying it needed to review additional criteria.

Industry’s position is that injection wells are the least expensive and most environmentally friendly way to dispose of fracking wastewater.

But for Long, there is no place safe enough to pour toxic liquid into the ground. “I was elected to keep everything clean and nice and that weighs heavily on me,” Long said. “It’s going to have to be bodies in the road to stop those trucks if the courts fail us.”

Former Trump Staffer Sues Campaign, Claims Officials Failed to Take Action After State Director Pulled a Gun on Him


Note: Hillary has serious health problems and is owned by the war mongering banksters. Trump is inciting a race war and will allow mafia cartels & mob bosses thru the back door of the White House.

The year of the Fire Monkey is certainly living up to it’s chaotic reputation, it’ll be interesting to see how this all plays out my friends. Blessings, {~A~}

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

But remember, Trump in no way incited violence!

A former software trainer for Donald Trump’s campaign Wednesday filed a lawsuit against the campaign and the campaign’s former North Carolina State Director, who he alleges pulled a gun on him. The former staffer, Vincent Bordini, also says senior campaign officials refused to take action against the state director, WBTC reports.

Bordini named Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. and former state director Earl Phillip as defendants in the suit. The complaint alleges that in February, Bordini,—“a dedicated, loyal Trump campaign staffer—was riding with Phillip in Phillip’s jeep when the state director “produced a pistol, put his right index finger on the trigger, and drove the barrel into Vincent’s knee cap.”

The complaint continues, painting an eerie image of the altercations:

“Phillip pushed the barrel into Vincent’s knee. The barrel’s pressure crinkled Vincent’s blue jeans. Phillip ominously stared sidewise at Vincent while driving the Jeep down the road and the barrel into Vincent.

“Vincent froze. Phillip’s gun was loaded and the safety was off. A bump in the road would likely result in a bullet hole, and worse, in Vincent’s knee.”

Bordini also alleges he told the regional director later that evening about the incident. According to Bordini, the director told him he once had a similar altercation with Phillip, adding he was “terrified” of the state director. In total, the suit alleges at least two other campaign members were approached with a gun by Phillip. “They described Phillip yelling and screaming in anger while brandishing a pistol,” the lawsuit reads.

According to Bordini, when he went up the chain to national field director Stuart Jolly, senior officials “did nothing” about the incident. According to the suit, he then told former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski (who has his own history of battery and assault) about Phillip; ultimately the campaign “did nothing to correct Phillip’s brazen behavior.”

Bordini resigned on March 12. He’s suing the campaign for “assault, battery, intentional infliction of emotional distress and negligent infliction of emotional distress.” Last week, the Trump campaign replaced Phillip as North Carolina state director, though the campaign has declined to comment on the case.

Bill Holter “World is Facing Very, Very Dangerous Time” ~ Greg Hunter


So, is the world headed for a “Mad Max” future? Financial writer Bill Holter says, “I think the chances are better than a coin flip that we have societal breakdown. If you are asking should you hold cash, my opinion is yeah, you should have some cash and very little bank balances because that is going to go away. You are going to have to have some physical cash, which will actually . . . after the system shuts down, become more valuable. The dollar will purchase more real goods for several weeks simply because if all the banks are closed and nobody has cash, then cash is scarce. That will work up until, all of a sudden, the light switch gets flipped and people understand that cash has no real value. People are not going to trade real eggs or real tomatoes for dollars. They will say I want something real for something real. That’s where your dollar collapses.”

On gold, the math is simple. Holter says, “The punchline to this is the system has never been risker and more leveraged than it is today. Yet, the price or the cost of insurance (gold and silver) has never been cheaper than it is today with the exception of late last year in October, November and December of 2015.”

Holter goes on to point out, “They have purposely diluted the price of gold in order to portray a strong dollar. . . . The reason they need to portray a strong dollar is to continue confidence in the system. It allows dollars to continue to be accepted. It also allows the U.S. Treasury to turn around and continue to borrow. That’s not working so well because the Federal Reserve has had to step up and buy major portions of auctions.”

How does it end? Holter says, “I have said many times that we are going to have a reset of the system. All currencies, all bonds, all interest rates, stocks, commodities, gold, silver, etcetera. This is a very, very dangerous time.”

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


cotton-2

By Christina Sarich

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

News Worth Celebrating: Megadam in the Heart of the Amazon Canceled!


Note: This victory was only made possible by the 1.2 million environmental activists & Earthkeepers around the world who participated in signing petitions protesting the construction of this megadam. So don’t believe the naysayers who say petitions are a waste of time, because they can really make a HUGE difference when we unite together en masse behind a cause. People power is one of the most powerful forces in the Universe!

Hence the reason “they” have created 1001 ways to divide us – fortunately the dark matrix is collapsing as humanity RE-Unites in heart and spirit!

Have a blessed weekend, aloha! Annette

Thanks to all of you — more than 1.2 million people — who stood with the Munduruku Indigenous people and made this victory possible!

© Rogério Assis / Greenpeace

This Wednesday, I had barely had breakfast when I was surprised by some absolutely amazing news: the Brazilian environmental agency — IBAMA announced it would cancel the process for licensing the São Luiz do Tapajós (SLT) megadam in the heart of the Amazon. Once my heart rate returned to normal, I started to call my colleagues and Munduruku leaders, seeking confirmation.

Today, it’s official: The Brazilian environmental agency has cancelled the São Luiz do Tapajós megadam. It’s time to celebrate this incredible news!

I would like to thank all of you — more than 1.2 million people around the world — who stood with the Munduruku Indigenous People to say no to the SLT dam and pressure multinational companies like Siemens to distance themselves from the project.

You made this victory possible!

Munduruku children playing in the rain in Sawré Muybu village. Sawré Muybu village serves as headquarters for the action on March 18th, 2016. A 20x30 meters banner is to be opened near the Tapajós river, protesting against the construction of dams in the region. Warriors from other villages and Greenpeace activists gather in the village. A aldeia Sawré Muybu recebe os preparativos para a ação do dia 18/03/2016, em que um banner de 20x30 metros deve ser aberto próximo ao Rio Tapajós, em protesto à construção de hidrelétricas na região. Guerreiros de outras aldeias e ativistas do Greenpeace chegam à aldeia. 15/03/2016. Foto: Rogério Assis/Greenpeace.

Over these last months we truly believed that sooner or later IBAMA would need to recognize the megadam project’s significant environmental and social impacts in the region. Now, with IBAMA’s decision, the approval process for the megadam cannot move forward.

Other Brazilian agencies like FUNAI (National Indigenous Foundation) and federal public prosecutors in the Brazilian state of Pará had recommended that IBAMA cancel the license because the project would displace Munduruku communities, making it unconstitutional. Part of the Munduruku Indigenous land called Sawré Muybu – an area in the process of been officially recognized as Indigenous Land – would have been flooded by the dam.

Now that the megadam’s license has been cancelled, the Brazilian Ministry of Justice must recognize its obligation and move swiftly to officially demarcate the Sawré Muybu territory.

Although, we are celebrating this incredible victory, we know there is a lot more to do to keep the Tapajós and other Amazon rivers free from hydrodams. Our campaign has not finished yet!

There are 42 other hydrodam projects planned in the Tapajós basin and hundreds earmarked across the Amazon rainforest – part of an aggressive economic model that doesn’t consider the critical importance of protecting the Amazon forest and its inhabitants. Previous dams build in the Amazon have negatively impacted local communities, devastated the environment and even been mired in corruption scandals.

We need to stop them, one by one!

The Brazilian government plans to build a series of dams in the Tapajós River basin, which would severely threaten the fauna, flora and life of the Indigenous people living along the river. O governo brasileiro pretende construir uma série de barragens na bacia do rio Tapajós, que ameaçam gravemente a fauna, a flora e a vida dos povos indígenas que vivem ao longo do rio.

There is another way.

Brazil must focus on truly renewable energy and become a world leader in wind and solar.

With the right investments, it is possible to generate the same amount of energy that dams like São Luiz do Tapájós would produce, by harnessing the power of wind and sun.

Hero: Obama Blocks Sale Of Sacred Apache Land To Foreign Mining Firm


Note: Victory for the Arizona Apache! Kudo’s to Obama for doing the right thing, it looked like the sacred site at Oak Flats would soon be opened to mining. But much to Mccain’s chagrin, the deal was blocked. Big smile🙂

May 25, 2016
obamahero

Over 300 Apache tribesmembers have occupied the site in protest since early 2015 in protest of the sale, determined to protect their ancestral grounds where girls hold their coming-of-age ceremonies. Apache spokesman Wendsler Nosie, Sr. wrote in a powerful letter to the Congressmen that the land of Oak Flats “has always been our connection to our Mother, our right to exist, a central part of our prayers, songs, stories and spiritual practices. It is from here that we emerged. It is who we are. We have lost so much.”

Gosar and Kirkpatrick were unmoved, however, motivated only by the demands of mining lobbyists and the allure of money. They orchestrated a shameful smear campaign that disputes the site’s sacred status and demanded that the Park Service declassify it as a protected area. The Obama Administration, through the Parks Service, instead designated it a historical district, effectively ending their efforts to mine holy grounds.

Gosar promptly threw a tantrum that will bring a smile to your face:

Shame on the Park Service and Forest Service for ramming a bogus historic place listing down the throats of Arizonans.

Clearly, the Obama Administration cares more about pandering to extremist environmental groups and a D.C. lobbyist from the Clinton Administration than following the law and listening to the American public. Oak Flat has never been a sacred site, as confirmed by the local tribe’s own former historian. Yet, Obama’s minions are hell-bent on sabotaging an important mining effort by listing a small, public campground 20 miles away from the nearest tribe’s reservation as a historic site.

President Obama and the Park Service have made a strong statement with their defense of Apache religion and the environment. It’s hard to imagine any politician arranging a shady deal to plunder a Christian or Jewish religious site – but clearly the victims of American genocide aren’t worthy of that respect in the eyes of Republicans.

Nothing may be sacred to Tea Partiers – but President Obama still knows where his priorities are.

US Government Suddenly Urges Americans to Prepare for Catastrophic Events


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

Image Source.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

And then, all hell broke loose.

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

Obama issued the first of 2 warnings to prep.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Well?

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

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

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

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

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

Here’s what you can do.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Are you ready yet?

U.S. Green Party Leader: Clinton Doesn’t Care About Palestinian Human Rights


Presidential candidate Jill Stein, the woman now heading the Bernie Sanders revolution, condemns damage being done by ‘war hawk’ Sheldon Adelson and says U.S. military aid to Israel should be contingent upon peace talks.

WATCH: Bernie Sanders supporters walk out of the DNC, threaten to split the Democratic party
Sanders supporters obstinately unmoved by plea to support Clinton
U.S. Green Party presidential candidate backs Israel boycott movement

PHILADELPHIA – A new leader emerged victorious from the protests that overtook the city of brotherly love this week. And it wasn’t Bernie Sanders or Donald Trump.

Sanders has repeatedly called on his supporters to vote for Hillary Clinton, yet the walkout staged by delegates and protests in Philadelphia shows that the “political revolution” promised by Sanders continues without him. Frustrated by events in the Democratic Party, some of the millions he inspired are looking for a new leader and filling the void is Jill Stein, presidential candidate for the Green Party of the United States. The Greens have traditionally been ignored by the media, but they might be about to shuffle the pack.

Unlike Sanders, who tried to avoid addressing the subject of Israel on the campaign trail, Stein doesn’t mince her words. In an interview with Haaretz, she reveals her stance on Palestine, U.S. military aid to Israel, Sheldon Adelson, and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

Two weeks ago, when Sanders first endorsed Clinton, Stein called on his followers to join her instead. It was unclear if they would heed her call. But as thousands gathered each afternoon near Philadelphia city hall this week, holding “Feel the Burn” banners yet chanting “Jill not Hill,” and accompanying her on a march across the city, it seems she succeeded better than anyone could have expected.

On Wednesday, an op-ed in The New York Times noted that if she manages to gather the support of at least 15 percent of the national electorate by September, Stein could participate in the presidential debate. This would introduce her to millions of voters and then, in a campaign where many are uninspired by the two leading candidates, “all bets are off.” (Of course, the same applies for the other “third party candidate,” Gary Johnson of the Libertarian Party.)

As her fans chanted her name while listening to Princeton professor Cornel West – another Sanders supporter who defected to Stein’s camp recently – the Green Party leader shares her views on Israel and her vision for the U.S.-Israel relationship with Haaretz.

“There are forces in the United States that are supporting the darker forces in Israel – [people] like Sheldon Adelson, who has been supporting the Netanyahu government, subsidizing it by millions of dollars per month from what I understand,” says Stein.

“So it’s interesting that it’s sort of [this] predatory oligarchy around the world that’s fanning the flames of war. It’s completely unacceptable and unjust that a war hawk in the United States should be inflicting a militaristic policy on Israel. And he doesn’t even live there, so he doesn’t have to live with the consequences of the policy his money is promoting,” she adds.

Stein stresses she would change the Israel-U.S. relationship, especially those between the United States and the Netanyahu government. She would make U.S. support for Israel contingent upon Israeli negotiations with the Palestinians and ending the occupation. And unlike President Barack Obama, Stein would not allow Israel to receive U.S. military aid while ignoring American calls for a peace deal.

“With all humility,” she says, “I would say to the Netanyahu government that we are turning the page in the United States and are now creating a foreign policy based on law and human rights. That we are going to put all of our neighbors and all of our allies on notice that, in the same way we are turning over a new leaf, we expect them to turn over a new leaf – and that in the future, our support and subsidies will be contingent on supporting international law and human rights.”

She continues: “Home demolitions, occupation, assassination, apartheid – many of these things the U.S. government is also doing now, so I say this with all due humility: We need to lead the way, because in countries all over the world this kind of oligarchy is destroying us. We have all become the targets here; injustice anywhere has become a real justice everywhere. We must have a world made of principle that can do away with these needless wars and violations of human rights.”

Also unlike Sanders, who focused on domestic policy and economic inequality during his campaign, Stein is focusing on American foreign policy – especially the arms industry. Ex-Bernie followers who have crossed over to Stein have now switched their line of attack against the Democratic presidential nominee: Old slogans about Clinton’s supposed allegiance to Wall Street have been replaced with accusations of warmongering. “No one is more of a warmonger than Hillary herself!” Stein said at a Philly rally on Monday, to applause.

“Hillary does not recognize Palestinian human rights, she does not recognize it as an issue, and the Democratic Party refuses to take this as a cause. They will not even pretend to care about Palestinian human rights,” Stein tells Haaretz.

She believes American public interest in Middle Eastern issues is greater than ever, and that a desire for a change in foreign policy is one of the draws of her campaign.

“We’re all on the same small boat,” she says. “Right now, the boat is going down and we need to take our ship into our [own] hands – because it’s the foxes running the chicken coup for their own profiteering purposes, especially the weapons industry, which is deciding our foreign policy based on selling weapons and instigating conflict around the world.”

Stein dodges questions about her specific vision for Israel and Palestine, or her views on the two-state solution. Instead, she says it’s up to the people of Israel and Palestine to decide on the solution, while Americans can aid the local groups working on these issues.

“The good people of Israel and Palestine are getting together, in grassroots groups, for human rights, and we should support them in their attempt to get past this horrible gridlock that the United States has enabled. This is upon the people of Israel and Palestine, on the basis of human rights, to continue building confidence and find the way out of this.”

Eyeing her supporters, Stein says the U.S. presidential election, which has been especially unpredictable this year, might also bring new opportunities for Israel.

“We are watching the unraveling of politics as we know it, which creates tremendous opportunities,” she says. “There is a way going forward, and it’s time to stand up and demand it. We say, forget the lesser evil, fight for the greater good. There are enough of us that, the minute we stand up for our conviction, we have all the momentum [and] all the conviction we need to go forward.”

Charles Ortel-Clinton Foundation $100 Billion Criminal Conspiracy ~ Greg Hunter


How much money has the Clinton Foundation raised globally? Wall Street financial expert Charles Ortel says it’s a “$100 billion criminal conspiracy” and goes on to say, “I think it is a disgrace. To put that number into perspective, depending on how you look at the Bernie Madoff Ponzi scheme, that was either $40 billion to $60 billion. This is $100 billion, and maybe more.”

How much Clinton Foundation money actually makes it to charitable causes? Ortel says, “It’s impossible to tell from the filings. You are supposed to tell from the filings, and it’s impossible to tell. One of the biggest expenses in the recent period in the Clinton Foundation is for
Pharmaceuticals for supposedly fighting HIV Aids. If this were a well-run charity, you would provide a detailed breakdown of what pharmaceuticals by type and at what price. There is none of that disclosure. You don’t know if that pharmaceutical number is completely made up or not. You have no way of telling, and the auditors have never done their work. This is why I say this is a text book case study in global charity fraud. It needs to be exposed as such.”

The CIA’s ‘Pokémon Go’ App is Doing What the Patriot Act Can’t ~ Corbett Report


07/14/201613 Comments

amashtweetby James Corbett
TheInternationalForecaster.com
July 13, 2016

Privacy advocates (that’s establishment speak for “normal human beings”) celebrated earlier this week as the House rejected yet another attempt to expand the Patriot Act’s snooping provisions. House Resolution 5606, better known by its Orwellian name, the “Anti-terrorism Information Sharing is Strength Act,” would have allowed Big Brother to access Americans’ financial information based on what the government deems to be “suspicious activity.” Given that the DHS has labeled such things as using binoculars, paying with cash, or even “appearing normal” as “possible terrorist activity” in the past (thus making pretty much every human being a possible terrorist), everyone can breathe a sigh of relief that the bill failed.

But don’t breathe that sigh too deeply, because exactly as that threat to privacy was being extinguished, another one was rising to take its place. It goes by the name of “Pokémon Go” and it is a so-called “augmented reality” game that allows users to capture, train and battle virtual Pokémon by chasing them around through real world environments with your smart phone.

pokemongoFull disclosure: Although I live in the land of anime and video games, I have never played any Pokémon games, watched any of the shows, read any of the comics or bought any of the toys associated with the franchise. I don’t know anything about it except for the name of that ubiquitous yellow Pikachu character. So if you are an out-of-touch fuddy-duddy like me, you may be surprised to learn that the “Pokémon Go” app, launched just one week ago, is the hottest thing on the planet right now.

To put into perspective just how popular this game is, it topped the App Store’s “Top Grossing” category within 24 hours of its release. Now, just one week out, it has been downloaded an estimated 7.5 million times in the US alone and is generating an estimated $1.6 million a day for Nintendo. But here’s the truly mind-boggling part: In just the first two trading days after the game’s release, Nintendo’s market value rose a staggering $7.5 billion. That’s right, folks, this is not merely a game, it is a phenomenon.

For those unfamiliar with “augmented reality” gaming, it’s a type of game where one tracks virtual characters or objects that appear on their smart phones through real world environments. The Pokémon Go game is prompting scores of people out into the streets to go chasing for wild Pokémon to capture.

It is also prompting heists, violence, hoaxes and hysteria.

pokemonilluminatiOn the more innocuous side, some restaurants and businesses are already trying to cash in on their proximity to spots with a lot of in-game activity. On the less innocuous side, robbers are now using “Lures” (which attract Pokémon to a certain spot) to lure gamers in to be mugged. One 19-year-old hunting for water Pokémon in a rural river ended up uncovering a dead body, one IT executive got fired from his job after an online Facebook tirade inspired by frustration at the game, and one YouTuber who was live streaming the game while out Ubering allegedly saw someone get murdered right in front of him…but that turned out to be a hoax.

If you’re wondering what’s going on here, you’re not the only one. It seems the internet is flipping its collective lid over this app as the line between gaming and the real world gets blurrier. But perhaps all of this pales in comparison to the game’s terms and conditions.

Firstly, the app requires an excessive amount of permissions on a user’s device, including the ability to read your contacts, find accounts on your device, and access your camera. The app even requires full access to a user’s Google account, which it can then use to read your emails, send emails from your account, browse your Google Drive documents and photos, etc. But apparently that’s just “a mistake” and will be “corrected soon.”

Secondly, the game’s privacy policy contains such gems as: “We may disclose any information about you (or your authorized child) that is in our possession or control to government or law enforcement officials or private parties.” What could go wrong?

But wait, it gets worse!

pokemonciaThe maker of the app? Niantic Labs. Never heard of them? That’s because until last year they were an internal start-up of none other than Google, the NSA-linked Big Brother company. Even now Google remains one of Niantic’s major backers. Niantic was founded by John Hanke, who also founded Keyhole, Inc., the mapping company which was created with seed money from In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture capital arm, and which was eventually rolled into Google Maps.

So yes, the Pokémon game currently taking the internet by storm (and scooping up all their data, including activities, movements and communications) was created by a CIA-linked businessman who gestated his company at Google.

Feeling safe yet?

As it turns out, the big, bad Big Brother Spies of the NSA and the DHS and the CIA don’t really need their Patriot Act powers, after all. All the powers-that-shouldn’t-be need to do is create a fun, shiny trinket for the people to play with and they will literally pay for their own surveillance.

Welcome to the “Matrix Economy,” where people pay to spy on themselves…and have fun doing it!

Huxley would be proud.
