Conspiracy then and now. / something we CAN do something about
« on: July 23, 2013, 05:28:34 PM »
We have discussed this topic many times but never with a solution ... Commercials and adverts.

I was watching TV several nights ago when it suddenly dawned on me that we pick out commercials etc that are blatently mindwashing and just set them aside, filed away in our conspiracy knowledge and never taking action as a cohesive group.

I suggest we start seeking out those ads we KNOW are controlling, and influencing the unawakened. How about starting a discussion group to begin a campaign of revelation and knowledge to the unawakened public by bringing to the table commercials and ads we find and how they work then ways of spreading the truth?

We have a Dow chemical ad here in Oz that may also screen in the US and UK that goes through their new? chemicals for better agricultural farm practices and ends the ad with the words "Dow's Agroscience". Note AGRO ... not Agri as in agriculture.

This is blatent "in your face" misinformation that influencesfarmers  without the average citizens ever realizing they are being told what is in store for their food chain.

The Meaning of AGRO   http://www.internetslang.com/AGRO-meaning-definition.asp
 
AGRO means "Hostile, angry" or "Aggravation, trouble"
 
So now you know - AGRO means "Hostile, angry" or "Aggravation, trouble" - don't thank us. YW!
 
 What does AGRO mean? AGRO is an acronym, abbreviation or slang word that is explained above where the AGRO definition is given.

History & Civilization / The Mayans may have got it right.

How many times have I said "The Elite have always known"? That they deliberately misled us and concealed the truth of the past which would reveal the future. The Elite have always kept real knowledge from us while feeding us diversions that divide, by controlling the Media, our education from birth to the grave, and religion.

These videos should clear up some of the BS they have fed us, such as co2 and man-made global warming and the sun/moon role in earth activity.

Very few people acknowledge the effect of the moon on the ocean tides, our blood flow (especially in women) and therfore on conception and birth.

This is the truth of Religion both Judaism and Christianity. There are lessons to be learned here that have never been so well explained before, and I hope everyone takes notes and reads these following messages to fully understand our total submission to a false GOD and how we can break the chains of "command".
 
For the start of this journey of discovery we have to begin with truth and origin of words, and more importantly of religion, it's meaning and intent.

Word Origin & History

For that to be explained we should start with the two most "derogatory" words known to man, ie Nigger and Goyim.

The term nigger  is now probably the most offensive word in "English". Its degree of offensiveness has increased markedly in recent years, although it has been used in a derogatory manner since at least the Revolutionary War.

nigger:

1786, earlier neger (1568, Scot. and northern England dialect), from Fr. nègre (neeger), from Sp. negro. From the earliest usage it was "the term that carries with it all the obloquy and contempt and rejection which whites have inflicted on blacks",

The same applies to "Goyim" (plural of Goy) the Jewish word for non-jews and even more derogatory which Jews inflict on non-jews. The origin 'supposedly' means Nation (of non-jews), later to be corrupted to 'beasts', such as cattle, pigs or 'sheep' ... and as in the term 'nigger' the degree of offensiveness has increased with the passage of time.

Then there are such words that when reversed means the opposite of the way in which they were used ... Such as GOD - Dog, and Live - Evil ... Our brain works like the eye (ie the image is reversed), but meaning remains in the SUB conscious to be processed with other information at a later date.

Lets start with a long (1hr 43 mins) but immensely important and very informative video called:


Take particular notice of the Rabbi quoting Isiah (between 36:30 and 38:59) the most telling of Jewish "AGENDAS".

Leading on from the bible are "The 24 Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion" a continuation of the bible in it's "active" form, ie "the how to" accomplish their objectives.

I doubt that all of you here have ever read the Prtocols in their entirety or truly comprehended their total evil (the way they intend for we non-jews to LIVE) and their GLOBALIZATION agenda, which we are still not completely aware of what it will mean for all of humanity, not to mention the effect on our planet.

I am going to post each Protocol in separate messages and implore you to read each of them carefully even if you have read them before. I'm posting them in the original translation but you can compare them with the Modern taxt at http://iamthewitness.com/Protocols-in-Modern-English.htm click on the Chapters in red following the summary.

Protocol No 1

1. ....Putting aside fine phrases we shall speak of the significance of each thought: by comparisons and deductions we shall throw light upon surrounding facts.

2. What I am about to set forth, then, is our system from the two points of view, that of ourselves and that of the GOYIM [i.e., non-Jews].

3. It must be noted that men with bad instincts are more in number than the good, and therefore the best results in governing them are attained by violence and terrorisation, and not by academic discussions. Every man aims at power, everyone would like to become a dictator if only he could, and rare indeed are the men who would not be willing to sacrifice the welfare of all for the sake of securing their own welfare.

4. What has restrained the beasts of prey who are called men? What has served for their guidance hitherto?

5. In the beginnings of the structure of society, they were subjected to brutal and blind force; afterwards - to Law, which is the same force, only disguised. I draw the conclusion that by the law of nature, right lies in force.

6. Political freedom is an idea but not a fact. This idea one must know how to apply whenever it appears necessary with this bait of an idea to attract the masses of the people to one's party for the purpose of crushing another who is in authority. This task is rendered easier if the opponent has himself been infected with the idea of freedom, SO-CALLED LIBERALISM, and, for the sake of an idea, is willing to yield some of his power. It is precisely here that the triumph of our theory appears; the slackened reins of government are immediately, by the law of life, caught up and gathered together by a new hand, because the blind might of the nation cannot for one single day exist without guidance, and the new authority merely fits into the place of the old already weakened by liberalism.

GOLD

7. In our day the power which has replaced that of the rulers who were liberal is the power of Gold. Time was when Faith ruled. The idea of freedom is impossible of realization because no one knows how to use it with moderation. It is enough to hand over a people to self-government for a certain length of time for that people to be turned into a disorganized mob. From that moment on we get internecine strife which soon develops into battles between classes, in the midst of which States burn down and their importance is reduced to that of a heap of ashes.

8. Whether a State exhausts itself in its own convulsions, whether its internal discord brings it under the power of external foes - in any case it can be accounted irretrievably lost: IT IS IN OUR POWER. The despotism of Capital, which is entirely in our hands, reaches out to it a straw that the State, willy-nilly, must take hold of: if not - it goes to the bottom.

9. Should anyone of a liberal mind say that such reflections as the above are immoral, I would put the following questions: If every State has two foes and if in regard to the external foe it is allowed and not considered immoral to use every manner and art of conflict, as for example to keep the enemy in ignorance of plans of attack and defense, to attack him by night or in superior numbers, then in what way can the same means in regard to a worse foe, the destroyer of the structure of society and the commonweal, be called immoral and not permissible?

10. Is it possible for any sound logical mind to hope with any success to guide crowds by the aid of reasonable counsels and arguments, when any objection or contradiction, senseless though it may be, can be made and when such objection may find more favor with the people, whose powers of reasoning are superficial? Men in masses and the men of the masses, being guided solely by petty passions, paltry beliefs, traditions and sentimental theorems, fall a prey to party dissension, which hinders any kind of agreement even on the basis of a perfectly reasonable argument. Every resolution of a crowd depends upon a chance or packed majority, which, in its ignorance of political secrets, puts forth some ridiculous resolution that lays in the administration a seed of anarchy.

11. The political has nothing in common with the moral. The ruler who is governed by the moral is not a skilled politician, and is therefore unstable on his throne. He who wishes to rule must have recourse both to cunning and to make-believe. Great national qualities, like frankness and honesty, are vices in politics, for they bring down rulers from their thrones more effectively and more certainly than the most powerful enemy. Such qualities must be the attributes of the kingdoms of the GOYIM, but we must in no wise be guided by them.

RIGHT IS MIGHT

12. Our right lies in force. The word "right" is an abstract thought and proved by nothing. The word means no more than: Give me what I want in order that thereby I may have a proof that I am stronger than you.

13. Where does right begin? Where does it end?

14. In any State in which there is a bad organization of authority, an impersonality of laws and of the rulers who have lost their personality amid the flood of rights ever multiplying out of liberalism, I find a new right - to attack by the right of the strong, and to scatter to the winds all existing forces of order and regulation, to reconstruct all institutions and to become the sovereign lord of those who have left to us the rights of their power by laying them down voluntarily in their liberalism.

15. Our power in the present tottering condition of all forms of power will be more invincible than any other, because it will remain invisible until the moment when it has gained such strength that no cunning can any longer undermine it.

16. Out of the temporary evil we are now compelled to commit will emerge the good of an unshakable rule, which will restore the regular course of the machinery of the national life, brought to naught by liberalism. The result justifies the means. Let us, however, in our plans, direct our attention not so much to what is good and moral as to what is necessary and useful.

17. Before us is a plan in which is laid down strategically the line from which we cannot deviate without running the risk of seeing the labor of many centuries brought to naught.

18. In order to elaborate satisfactory forms of action it is necessary to have regard to the rascality, the slackness, the instability of the mob, its lack of capacity to understand and respect the conditions of its own life, or its own welfare. It must be understood that the might of a mob is blind, senseless and un-reasoning force ever at the mercy of a suggestion from any side. The blind cannot lead the blind without bringing them into the abyss; consequently, members of the mob, upstarts from the people even though they should be as a genius for wisdom, yet having no understanding of the political, cannot come forward as leaders of the mob without bringing the whole nation to ruin.

19. Only one trained from childhood for independent rule can have understanding of the words that can be made up of the political alphabet.

20. A people left to itself, i.e., to upstarts from its midst, brings itself to ruin by party dissensions excited by the pursuit of power and honors and the disorders arising therefrom. Is it possible for the masses of the people calmly and without petty jealousies to form judgment, to deal with the affairs of the country, which cannot be mixed up with personal interest? Can they defend themselves from an external foe? It is unthinkable; for a plan broken up into as many parts as there are heads in the mob, loses all homogeneity, and thereby becomes unintelligible and impossible of execution.

WE ARE DESPOTS

21. It is only with a despotic ruler that plans can be elaborated extensively and clearly in such a way as to distribute the whole properly among the several parts of the machinery of the State: from this the conclusion is inevitable that a satisfactory form of government for any country is one that concentrates in the hands of one responsible person. Without an absolute despotism there can be no existence for civilization which is carried on not by the masses but by their guide, whosoever that person may be. The mob is savage, and displays its savagery at every opportunity. The moment the mob seizes freedom in its hands it quickly turns to anarchy, which in itself is the highest degree of savagery.

22. Behold the alcoholic animals, bemused with drink, the right to an immoderate use of which comes along with freedom. It is not for us and ours to walk that road. The peoples of the GOYIM are bemused with alcoholic liquors; their youth has grown stupid on classicism and from early immorality, into which it has been inducted by our special agents - by tutors, lackeys, governesses in the houses of the wealthy, by clerks and others, by our women in the places of dissipation frequented by the GOYIM. In the number of these last I count also the so-called "society ladies," voluntary followers of the others in corruption and luxury.

23. Our countersign is - Force and Make-believe. Only force conquers in political affairs, especially if it be concealed in the talents essential to statesmen. Violence must be the principle, and cunning and make-believe the rule for governments which do not want to lay down their crowns at the feet of agents of some new power. This evil is the one and only means to attain the end, the good. Therefore we must not stop at bribery, deceit and treachery when they should serve towards the attainment of our end. In politics one must know how to seize the property of others without hesitation if by it we secure submission and sovereignty.

24. Our State, marching along the path of peaceful conquest, has the right to replace the horrors of war by less noticeable and more satisfactory sentences of death, necessary to maintain the terror which tends to produce blind submission. Just but merciless severity is the greatest factor of strength in the State: not only for the sake of gain but also in the name of duty, for the sake of victory, we must keep to the programme of violence and make-believe. The doctrine of squaring accounts is precisely as strong as the means of which it makes use. Therefore it is not so much by the means themselves as by the doctrine of severity that we shall triumph and bring all governments into subjection to our super-government. It is enough for them to know that we are too merciless for all disobedience to cease.

WE SHALL END LIBERTY

25. Far back in ancient times we were the first to cry among the masses of the people the words "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," words many times repeated since these days by stupid poll-parrots who, from all sides around, flew down upon these baits and with them carried away the well-being of the world, true freedom of the individual, formerly so well guarded against the pressure of the mob. The would-be wise men of the GOYIM, the intellectuals, could not make anything out of the uttered words in their abstractedness; did not see that in nature there is no equality, cannot be freedom: that Nature herself has established inequality of minds, of characters, and capacities, just as immutably as she has established subordination to her laws: never stopped to think that the mob is a blind thing, that upstarts elected from among it to bear rule are, in regard to the political, the same blind men as the mob itself, that the adept, though he be a fool, can yet rule, whereas the non-adept, even if he were a genius, understands nothing in the political - to all those things the GOYIM paid no regard; yet all the time it was based upon these things that dynastic rule rested: the father passed on to the son a knowledge of the course of political affairs in such wise that none should know it but members of the dynasty and none could betray it to the governed. As time went on, the meaning of the dynastic transference of the true position of affairs in the political was lost, and this aided the success of our cause.

26. In all corners of the earth the words "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity," brought to our ranks, thanks to our blind agents, whole legions who bore our banners with enthusiasm. And all the time these words were canker-worms at work boring into the well-being of the GOYIM, putting an end everywhere to peace, quiet, solidarity and destroying all the foundations of the GOY States. As you will see later, this helped us to our triumph: it gave us the possibility, among other things, of getting into our hands the master card - the destruction of the privileges, or in other words of the very existence of the aristocracy of the GOYIM, that class which was the only defense peoples and countries had against us. On the ruins of the natural and genealogical aristocracy of the GOYIM we have set up the aristocracy of our educated class headed by the aristocracy of money. The qualifications for this aristocracy we have established in wealth, which is dependent upon us, and in knowledge, for which our learned elders provide the motive force.

27. Our triumph has been rendered easier by the fact that in our relations with the men, whom we wanted, we have always worked upon the most sensitive chords of the human mind, upon the cash account, upon the cupidity, upon the insatiability for material needs of man; and each one of these human weaknesses, taken alone, is sufficient to paralyze initiative, for it hands over the will of men to the disposition of him who has bought their activities.

28. The abstraction of freedom has enabled us to persuade the mob in all countries that their government is nothing but the steward of the people who are the owners of the country, and that the steward may be replaced like a worn-out glove.

29. It is this possibility of replacing the representatives of the people which has placed at our disposal, and, as it were, given us the power of appointment.

Heaven Above / Sushi! I owe you an apology
« on: January 05, 2012, 08:38:17 PM »

Seems HAARP is more prolific than I first suspected, there could be a dozen or more arrays worldwide..

Sorry for negating your info Sushi.

 I have been bombarded with information re HAARP lately and coupled with the CO2 BS, the information from the guidestones, and the fact that HAARP can not only affect the weather but it can cause earthquakes and Tsunamis (therefore volcanic eruptions too) it makes the 500 million all too real.

Maybe it's time to move to higher ground (but stay away from Yellowstone).

Here's the latest video.

2011 / We really really want that oil, er, maybe not

Kazakhstan Orders Curfew for Oil Town

By ANDREW E. KRAMER
Published: December 17, 2011
 
MOSCOW — The president of Kazakhstan declared a state of emergency on Saturday in a town in the western oil-producing region of the country, where striking workers and the police fought the day before, leaving at least 11 people dead. 

Shamil Zhumatov/Reuters
The police in Almaty, Kazakhstan, on Saturday detained a man who tried to protest a government crackdown in an oil town.

At Least 10 Die as Police Clash With Strikers in Kazakhstan (December 17, 2011)
Follow @nytimesworld for international breaking news and headlines.

The nearly three-week state of emergency allows the authoritarian government to prohibit audio and video recording and establish a curfew in the town, Zhanaozen, and on Saturday human rights activists reported that the road into the town had been blocked by a checkpoint. Journalists trying to go there said their commercial flight had been canceled.

With cellphone coverage intermittent and Internet access in the area apparently blocked by the government, confusion swirled over the scale and causes of what could be the worst civil unrest in Kazakhstan, an oil-rich Central Asian nation, since independence was declared 20 years ago.

Human rights groups and the government were presenting starkly different narratives of what happened.

Nongovernmental groups and independent journalists said protesting workers were venting their rage at a government that had failed to solve a wage dispute involving a state-run employer.

The government, in contrast, has tried to cast the protesters as “hooligans,” possibly financed from outside the country.

“We will not permit any attempts to disturb the peace and calm in our home, to erase the achievements of our independence,” President Nursultan Nazarbayev said in a statement issued Saturday.

The government has not said how the deaths occurred, but Mr. Nazarbayev said Saturday that the police had acted lawfully.

Witnesses who spoke to local journalists on Friday, before communications were cut, said that the police had fired at the workers and that the death toll was higher than what the government said.

An online video that appeared to have been recorded at the scene before the deaths showed angry men stomping on holiday decorations, swinging sticks to shatter glass orbs and golden bells, and lighting a Christmas tree on fire. The decorations appeared to have been set up for a state-run party for children that might have been called as a way to dislodge the workers from the square after an extended sit-in.

Mr. Nazarbayev, who on Friday announced the formation of a commission to investigate the violence, said the panel would “take all the necessary measures to identify and punish those who organized this unrest.”

Nurdaulet Suindikov, a spokesman for the Kazakh prosecutor general, said at a news conference on Saturday that “as is well known, the riots began with hooligan behavior on the part of a group of young persons and unemployed oil workers who had fallen under their influence.”

The government raised the death toll on Saturday to 11 and said 86 people had been injured.

Andrei A. Grishen, the editor of a newsletter published by the Kazakhstan International Bureau for Human Rights, said about 200 people attended a solidarity gathering in Almaty, the commercial capital and the center of the small opposition movement, but they were not allowed to march. The police briefly detained about two dozen people, he said.

The police detained about 150 people at another protest on Saturday in Aktau, a provincial capital, Mr. Grishen said.

The unrest could prove to be an embarrassment for United States foreign policy in Central Asia. American oil companies have courted Mr. Nazarbayev’s government for years with the support of several American administrations, and the State Department has rarely criticized the government publicly.

The oil workers in Zhanaozen walked off their jobs last spring over demands for higher wages. But they recently shifted their focus to political demands, including the right to form independent parties.

In one online video posted by Stan TV, a Kazakh television channel, a witness described the mayhem, in an account that could not be verified independently.

“It started unexpectedly at one moment,” Sholpan Otekeyeva, a resident of Zhanaozen, told journalists. “Three people were killed before my eyes. The riot police were shooting from the side. We thought they were nonlethal weapons, and people ran toward the troops. They shot and shot. At some moment they started to hit people on the arm, on the leg. One guy was hit in the forehead

    Kazakhstan Faces Threat of European Tariffs on White Phosphorus

By Jonathan Stearns - Dec 17, 2011 11:52 PM GMT+1030
The European Union threatened to impose tariffs on white phosphorus from Kazakhstan to limit competition for Dutch producer Thermphos International BV.

The EU opened an inquiry into whether Kazakh manufacturers of the chemical sell it in the 27-nation bloc below cost, a practice known as dumping. White phosphorus is used to make derivatives including chlorides, sulphides and phosphoric acid, according to the website of Thermphos International.

The EU probe will determine whether imports of white phosphorus from Kazakhstan are “being dumped and whether this dumping has caused injury to the union industry,” the European Commission, the bloc’s trade authority in Brussels, said today in the Official Journal. The commission has nine months to decide whether to impose provisional anti-dumping duties for half a year and EU governments have 15 months to decide whether to apply “definitive” levies for five years.

The dumping investigation stems from a Nov. 7 complaint by Thermphos International, which is the EU’s sole producer of white phosphorus, according to the commission.

2011 / On the Knife Edge of WWIII
« on: December 15, 2011, 08:37:33 AM »

Keep a close eye on events - US is "pulling out" of Iraq (freeing up more troops to 'invade' else-where) - China has now got it's first big aircraft carrier at sea for work-up trials - India has invited the Chinese to witness the biggest ever display of it's naval power (just to let them know what they face to the South) - US has lost a highly sophisticated spy drone over Iran and demands it be returned to them (of course the Iranians will by now have given the Russians and China full access to it) - Israel is pushing hard to stir more trouble in Palestine - Syria is top of the "hit list" - and of course the US/Israeli zionist regime is itching to take out Iranian nuclear power plants ..........

We are right on the knife edge of WWIII

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing"

"Daddy what did you do (before) the war?"



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-16192105

The flag of American forces in Iraq has been lowered in Baghdad, bringing nearly nine years of US military operations in Iraq to a formal end.

The US Defence Secretary, Leon Panetta, told troops the mission had been worth the cost in blood and dollars.

He said the years of war in Iraq had yielded to an era of opportunity in which the US was a committed partner.

Only about 4,000 US soldiers now remain in Iraq, but they are due to leave in the next two weeks.

At the peak of the operation, US forces there numbered 170,000.

The symbolic ceremony in Baghdad officially "cased" (retired) the US forces flag, according to army tradition.
It will now be taken back to the USA.

Mr Panetta told US soldiers they could leave Iraq with great pride.

"After a lot of blood spilled by Iraqis and Americans, the mission of an Iraq that could govern and secure itself has become real," he said.

Iraqi Deputy Prime Minister Hussain al-Shahristani said Iraqis were glad the US troops were leaving.

"They have been difficult years," he told the BBC.

"We have had some successes together. We had some failures. We have some mishaps.

"I think we are all happy that the American soldiers are returning home safely to their families and we are also confident that the Iraqi people and their armed forces, police, are in a position now to take care of their own security."

Some 4,500 US soldiers and more than 100,000 Iraqis have died in the war.

The conflict, launched by the Bush administration in March 2003, soon became hugely unpopular as claims that Saddam Hussein was hiding weapons of mass destruction and supporting al-Qaeda militants turned out to be untrue.

The war has cost the US some $1tr.

Republicans have criticised the pullout citing concerns over Iraq's stability, but a recent poll by the Pew Research Centre found that 75% of Americans backed the troop withdrawal.

'Moment of success'
President Barack Obama, who came to office pledging to bring troops home, said on Wednesday that the US left behind a "sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq".

In a speech in North Carolina to troops who have just returned, Mr Obama hailed the "extraordinary achievement" of the military and said they were leaving with "heads held high".

"Everything that American troops have done in Iraq, all the fighting and dying, bleeding and building, training and partnering, has led us to this moment of success," he said.

Barack Obama: "You have shown why the US military is the finest fighting force in the history of the world"

"The war in Iraq will soon belong to history, and your service belongs to the ages."

He said the war had been "a source of great controversy" but that they had helped to build "a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq, with a representative government that was elected by its people".

Mr Obama announced in October that all US troops would leave Iraq by the end of 2011, a date previously agreed by former President George W Bush in 2008.

Some 1.5 million Americans have served in Iraq since the US invasion in 2003. In addition to those who died, nearly 30,000 have been wounded.

Troop numbers peaked during the height of the so-called surge strategy in 2007, but the last combat troops left Iraq in August last year.

A small contingent of some 200 soldiers will remain in Iraq as advisers, while some 15,000 US personnel are now based at the US embassy in Baghdad - by far the world's largest.

'Ruin and mess'
Some Iraqis have said they fear the consequences of being left to manage their own security.

Baghdad trader Malik Abed said he was grateful to the Americans for ridding Iraq of Saddam Hussein, but added: "I think now we are going to be in trouble. Maybe the terrorists will start attacking us again."

But in the city of Falluja, a former insurgent stronghold which was the scene of major US offensives in 2004, people burned US flags on Wednesday in celebration at the withdrawal.

"No-one trusted their promises, but they said when they came to Iraq they would bring security, stability and would build our country," Ahmed Aied, a grocer, told Reuters news agency.

"Now they are walking out, leaving behind killings, ruin and mess."

Concerns have also been voiced in Washington that Iraq lacks robust political structures or an ability to defend its borders.

There are also fears that Iraq could be plunged back into sectarian bloodletting, or be unduly influenced by Iran.

Analysis
 John Simpson World Affairs Editor, BBC News
For 40 years, Iraq has been one of the most damaged countries on earth.

The American-led invasion and overthrow of Saddam led to a savage civil war which is still not finished.

The United States leaves behind a country embittered by the occupation.

And yet today, as the Americans pull down their flag and leave, some Iraqis hope that their country's luck may be turning.

If Iraq becomes wealthy, if it can stay more or less democratic, if it can finally bring terrorism to an end, then the 40 years of horror may be over.

Its people deserve a little good luck at last.

Heaven Above / THE ISS; Everything you've never thought about
« on: December 14, 2011, 01:37:06 PM »
For reasons of space (pun intended) I have cut a number of pics From this article that can be seen at Wiki along with much more information via hyperlinks, and cut the article into segment posts Following . My comments appear in Maroon

Please read this entire article and also read between the lines, and don't forget symbology, and making connections to other news items and previous released articles.

Do you see any relationship to actual space travel beyond the Van Allen Belt? Or it's capability to do so?

How about the TRUE cost of building and operating the ISS and the many Space probes, explorations, modules, shuttles, satellites ad infinitum all made from wars, famines, regime changes, economic bailouts, Bank and economic frauds and every other corrupt operations imaginable.. the cost is not in Billions but in TRILLIONS .... of OUR money. 

Also join the dots via the countries involved and contracts to honour ... Do you see the light? Will Russia save syria/Iran, will China intervene?.. or will they continue the usual chess game and join forces for the 'final solution'? Communism has ALWAYS controlled us, capatalism has only been for the Elite and those prepared to sell their souls to the "Devil".

This space ARK was never meant to travel outside the earths orbit, THIS IS A SPACE HAVEN for the young CHOSEN ELITE ONLY, and is intended for the few elite who can carry on their plans for a privately owned planet when the $h^t hits the fan, economies crumble to dust, and life on earth is totally compromised. The older and lesser elites will go UNDERGROUND (a not so safe alternative).

Here are some comments made by my friend kev (an amateur ham operater and inventor of a unique communications tower) who has studied this topic from the beginning (ie phoney moon landing).

KEV "It is all made to appear benign and scientific acheivement for the worlds people in general and the spin doctoring has been very clever - but take a close look at the cost and the actual capabilities of the thing - couple that with the hundreds of billions of $$$$ that have been spent over many years perfecting cryogenics and IVF (test tube babies) and the massive sum spent on monitoring the Suns activity and you begin to open doors into a whole new world of lies and deceit.

Over the years (begining of course with the phony "Moon landings") NASA has been able to suck in mega billions of $$$$ using phony space missions such as Mars expeditions and various other "probes" the majority of which were nothing more than a radio telemetry transponder to feed back pre recorded data to the ground stations - these "drones" all mysteriously failed after short periods for various reasons - but of course the funding for the missions was billions of $$$ more than the cost of the mission - so the slush fund grew and was fed covertly into the ISS program to make sure it was ready in time for the Superus Eligere to take up residence when the time came - sure it will only be a small number of the elite who will crew the station - young members of the Elite - who will maintain the station as they themselves age and die off to be replaced by their own offspring who will be trained in situ to run the station and prepare for the time when the planet is once again habitable - they will then begin to raise the test tube human children who will be transported to the surface on the "Dove" to establish the new populations in the various locations of land mass - ie dna proven genetic groups planted in locations far away from each other so they do not kill each other off before they have been able to establish larger populations.

Alway remember, the Superus Eligere do not think in terms of days months years - they think in terms of thousands of years and they have the knowledge passed to them by their ancient predecessors - and they know very well the extents of human weakness".

Money & Markets / OCCUPY MOVEMENT (Ending corporate rule)

Occupy is Not Just About Occupying: The Goal is Not to Occupy it is to End Corporate Rule

By Kevin Zeese

Global Research, December 11, 2011


With encampments being closed across the country it is important to remember the end goal is not to occupy public space, it is to end corporate rule. We seek to replace the rule of money with the rule of people.  Occupying is a tactic but the grand strategy of the Occupy Movement is to weaken the pillars that hold the corporate-government in place by educating, organizing and mobilizing people into an independent political force.

The occupations of public space have already done a great deal to lift the veil of lies.  People are now more aware than ever that the wealth divide is caused by a rigged economic system of crony capitalism and that we can create a fair economy that works for all Americans.  We are also aware that many of our fellow citizens are ready to take action – extreme action of sleeping outside in the cold in a public park.  And, we also now know that we have the power to shift the debate and force the economic and political elites to listen to us. In just a few months we have made a difference. 

Occupying public space involves a lot of resources and energy that could be spent educating, organizing and mobilizing people in much greater numbers.  There is a lot to do to end corporate rule and the challenges of occupying public space can divert our attention and resources from other responsibilities we have as a movement.

When we were organizing the Occupation of Washington, DC – before the occupation of Wall Street began – we were in conversation with movements around the world.  The Spanish Indignados told us that an occupation should last no more than two weeks.  After that it becomes a diversion from the political objectives.  The occupation begins to spend its time dealing with poverty, homelessness, inadequately treated mental illness and addiction – this has been experienced by occupies across the country.

Occupying for a short time accomplishes many of the objectives of holding public space – the political dialogue is affected, people are mobilized and all see that fellow citizens can effectively challenge the corporate-state.  Staying for a lengthy period continues to deepen these goals but the impacts are more limited and the costs get higher.

What to do next?  The Occupy Movement needs to bring participatory democracy to communities.  Occupiers should develop an aggressive organizing plan for their city.  Divide the city and appoint people to be responsible for different areas of the city.  Depending on how many people you have make these areas as small as possible.  Develop plans for house-to-house campaigns where you knock on doors, provide literature, ask what you can do to make their lives better.  Do they need snow removed?  Clothes?  If so, get the occupy team to fulfill their needs, find used clothes, clean their yard – whatever you can do to help.  This shows community and builds relationships.

Plan a march through the different communities in the city.  Make it a spectacle. Have a marching band.  Don’t have one – reach out to local school bands. Organize them.  Create floats, images and signs.  Display yourselves and your message.  Hand out literature as you march. Let people know what the occupy stands for they should join us in building a better world for them and their families.

Plan public General Assemblies in communities across the city.  Teach people the General Assembly process, the hand signals, how to stack speakers, how to listen and reach consensus.  Learn the local issues.  Solve local problems.  Again, build a community that works together to solve problems.

Let people know about the National Occupation of Washington DC (NOW DC), the American Spring beginning on March 30th.  Organize people to come, share rides, hire buses, walk, ride a bike – get people to the nation’s capital to show the united force of the people against the rule of money.  This will be an opportunity to display our solidarity and demand that the people, not money, rule.
How rapidly a movement makes progress is hard to predict. It is never a constant upswing of growth and progress. We may be in for a sprint, or more likely, a marathon with hurdles. If you are hoping for a sprint, note that the deep corruption of the government and the economy has left both weaker than is publicly acknowledged. It may be a hollowed out shell ready to fall.


But, this may also take years to accomplish.  Take the timeline of the Civil Rights movement: 1955 Rosa Parks sits in the front of the bus, not until five years later in 1960, do the lunch counter sit-ins begin. Not until three years later in 1963 does Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. lead a march on Washington for the “I have a Dream” speech.  No doubt the time between Rosa Parks and the lunch counter sit-ins and Civil Rights Act passing in 1964 seemed slow to those involved.  Looking back it was rapid, transformational change.  In fact, the movement grew in fits and starts and had roots decades of activity before the 1950s.  In those times of seeming lull, work was being done, to educate and organize people that led to the big spurts of progress. 

Older movements, when communication was slower, have taken even longer. The women’s suffrage movement held its first convention in 1848 in Seneca Falls, NY.  Twenty years later, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton formed the National Woman Suffrage Association. In 1913, Alice Paul and Lucy Burns formed the National Women's Party to work for a constitutional amendment to give women the vote. Finally, in 1919 the federal woman’s suffrage amendment, originally written by Susan B. Anthony and introduced in Congress in 1878, was passed by the House of Representatives and the Senate, sent to the states for ratification and signed into law one year later.

With mass media, and especially the new democratized media of social networks, the Internet, anonymous leaks and independent media, it is very likely the end of the rule of money will come more quickly.  If we focus on our goal, act with intention and use our energy and resources wisely victory will come sooner.

Our challenge to corporate power has roots.  The Project on Corporations Law and Democracy was founded in 1995.  In 1999 the protests against the World Trade Organization occurred in Seattle. In 2000, long-time crusader against corporate power, Ralph Nader, ran his first full presidential campaign and continues to challenge corporatism.  This decade has been called the “Great Turning,” which Joanna Macy has defined as “the shift from the Industrial Growth Society to a life-sustaining civilization.” “America Beyond Capitalism” by Gar Alperovitz, just printed its second edition, five years after the first, documenting the evolution of the developing democratized economy. These are some of the foundations on which the Occupy Movement is building as the unfairness and insecurity of corporate capitalism becomes evident to all. Our roots are deeper than the few months of our existence.

The elites are foolish to think they will stop this movement by closing occupations.  The Occupy Movement will evolve in new and unpredictable ways that will make the elites wish for the days of mere public encampments. The 1% should know they will be held accountable. The people have found their voice and will not be silenced. The era of the rule of money is nearing its end. 

Kevin Zeese is an organizer of Occupy Washington, DC and co-director of It’s Our Economy.

America's Descent to Depravity

By Prof. John Kozy
 
URL of this article: www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=27180
 
Global Research, October 20, 2011

The Protestant ethic once defined the American character. It was held to be responsible for the success of Capitalism in Northern Europe and America by sociologists, but the Protestant ethic and Capitalism are incompatible, and Capitalism ultimately caused the Protestant ethic to be abandoned.

A new ethos emerged that the governing elite completely misunderstands. It is the ethos of the "big break," the "jackpot," the "next big idea." The slow and deliberate road to success is now anathema. Coming up with the next big commercial idea is the new model of the American dream. All that matters is the money. Given that attitude, few in America express moral concerns. Wealth is its own reward; it's even worth destroying ourselves for. And if we haven't done it yet, we surely soon will.



I suspect that most people would like to believe that societies, no matter how base their origins, become better over time. Unfortunately history belies this notion; societies have often grown worse over time. The United States of America is no exception. It was not benign at its origin and has now descended to a region of depravity seldom matched by even the worst nations of history.

Although it is impossible to find hard numbers to prove that morality in America has declined, anecdotal evidence is everywhere to be seen. Almost everyone can cite situations in which the welfare of people was sacrificed for the sake of public or private institutions, but it seems impossible to cite a single instance of a public or private institution's having been sacrificed for the sake of people. If morality has to do with how people are dealt with, one can legitimately ask where morality plays a role in what happens in America? The answer seems to be, "Nowhere!" So what has happened in America to account for the current epidemic of claims that morality in America has collapsed? Well the culture has changed drastically in the last half century, that's what.

Once upon a time in America, the American character was defined in terms of what was called the Protestant Ethic. The sociologist, Max Weber, attributed Capitalism's success to it. Unfortunately Max was lax; he got it wrong, completely wrong. Capitalism and the Protestant ethic are inconsistent with each other. Neither can have been responsible for the other.

The Protestant (or Puritan) ethic is based upon the notion that hard work and frugality are two important consequences of being one of Christianity's elect. If a person is hard working and frugal, s/he is considered to be one of the elect. Those beneficent attributes, it was believed, made Americans a more industrious people than people elsewhere (although Europe's Protestant societies were considered a close second while Southern Europe's Catholic peoples were considered slothful.) Some now claim that we are witnessing the decline and fall of the Protestant ethic in Western societies. Since the Protestant ethic has a religious root, the decline is often attributed to a rise in secularism. But that case is considerably easier to make in Europe than in America where Protestant fundamentalism still has a huge following. So there must be some other explanation for the decline. Nevertheless, the increase in secularism has led many to claim that secularism has destroyed religious values along with the moral values religion teaches. There's another explanation.

In 17th Century Colonial America, the economy was agrarian. Hard work and frugality fit that economy perfectly. But America is no longer agrarian. The American economy today is defined as industrial capitalism. Agrarian economies rarely produce more than can be consumed, but industrial economies do every day. So in order to keep an industrial economy functioning, consumption must not only be continuous, it must continually increase.

I doubt that there is a reader who has not heard that 70% of the American economy results from consumption. But 70% of one is 0.7, of two, 1.4, of three, 2.1, etc. As the economy grows from one unit of GNP to two units, consumption must grow from 0.7 units to 1.4 units. But continually increasing consumption is not compatible with frugality. An industrial economy requires people to spend and spend and spend while frugality requires people to save and save and save. The American economy destroyed the Protestant ethic and the religious views upon which it was founded. Conspicuous consumption replaced hard work and thrift.

In his Wealth of Nations, Adam Smith claims that Capitalism benefits everyone since acting in one’s own self-interest benefits others. Now we are being told that, "Saving more and cutting debt might sound like a good plan to deal with the recession. But if everyone does that, it'll only make matters worse. . . . what the economy needs most is for consumers to be spending more freely." The great recession has stood Adam Smith on his head, but no economist will admit it. "An environment where everyone wants to save cannot be conducive to growth. Production needs to be sold and for that you need customers."

Saving is (presumable) good for individuals but bad for the economy which requires continuously increasing spending. If an economist had told that to me to my face, I would have told him that that clearly means that there is something fundamentally wrong with the nature of the economy, that it means that the economy does not exist to provide for the needs of people but that people exist only to fulfill the needs of the economy. Although it may not look like it, such an economy enslaves the people it claims to serve. So in effect, industrial capitalism has perpetuated slavery; it has re-enslaved those who were once emancipated.

When consumption replaced thrift in the American psyche, the rest of morality sank into depravity with it. The need to sell requires marketing which is nothing but a liars lair. After all, the entire enterprise is founded on Edward L. Bernays 1928 book, Propaganda. The American culture has been inundated by a tsunami of lies. Marketing has become the culture's predominant activity. No one can isolate her/himself from it. It's carried on by businesses, politicians, and the media. No one can be certain s/he's being told the truth by anyone. No moral code can survive in a culture of dishonesty, and none has!

Having subverted the Protestant ethic, the economy destroyed every ethic America has ever promoted. It became a society without an ethos, a nociety with no humane purpose. Americans have become lambs sacrificable for the sake of machines. Then a new ethos emerged from the chaos, one that the governing elite completely misunderstands.

It is often claimed that Washington has lost touch with the Americans it governs, that it no longer understands its people or how its common culture operates. Washington and the nation's elite don't realize it but the culture no longer values right over wrong or hard work and frugality over sloth and profligacy. Americans today are looking for the "big break," the "jackpot," the "next big idea." The American Dream has now been reduced to "hitting it big!" The slow and deliberate road to success is anathema. Watch American Idol, The X Factor, and America's Got Talent and survey the Mongolian hoards that show up for auditions. These people, for the most part, have not worked hard at anything. Count the number of people who wager on the Lotto regularly. Such wagering requires no work at all. All these people want to do is hit it big. And who are our most extolled businessmen? Entrepreneurs! Entrepreneurs are, for the most part, one time flashes in the pan although there are notable exceptions. The trouble with entrepreneurship, however, is the high regard in which it is held. But the only value attached to it is the amounts of money entrepreneurs have made. We rarely hear anything about the nefarious ways in which they have made it. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, for instance, hardly present images of people with sterling moral characters, but in an economy without moral scruples, no one cares; all that matters is the money. Given that attitude, why should anyone in this society express moral concerns? Few in America do. So while the American elite still talk about the need to produce a workforce suitable to the needs of industry, the people want none of it.

The elite often bemoan the American educational system's failure and have been trying to fix it unsuccessfully for several decades. But if one remembers that many of America's present, most successful entrepreneurs are college dropouts, how can the young be convinced that a college education is a worthwhile endeavor? As Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Mark Zuckerberg have shown, learning to write software does not require a college degree. Neither does winning the Lotto or a place on American Idol. Being drafted by the NFL may require a stint in college, but it doesn't require a degree. All entrepreneurship requires is a new marketable idea.

Entertainment and sports, lotteries and game shows, consumer products that people have had no need for for billions of years are now the stuff of American culture. But they're not stuff, they're fluff; they cannot form the basis of a stable, prosperous, humane society. It is a culture governed by merely one attribute—wealth, ill gotten or not!

The human capacity for self-delusion is limitless. Americans have deluded themselves into believing that aggregate wealth, the sum total of wealth rather than how it is distributed, makes right. It matters not how it is gotten or what is done with it. Aggregate wealth is its own reward; it is even worth destroying ourselves for. And if we haven't yet, we surely soon will.

History describes many nations that have become depraved. None that has has ever reformed itself. No beautiful boy can be counted on to come forth to undo the catastrophe of the Midas touch. Money, after all, is not one of the things human beings need to survive, and if money isn't used to produce and distribute the things needed, human survival is impossible no matter how much aggregate wealth is accumulated.

Geoffrey Gurrumul Yunupingu was born blind and taught himself several instruments but at age eight was given a right hand guitar that he turned around (he's left handed) and learned to play it reversed. He doesn't speak much English so most of his music is sung in his native tongue.... I find his voice hauntingly beautiful, I hope you like it too.

Britain’s Riots: Thuggery, Looting, Lawlessness... By the Ruling Class

By Finian Cunningham
URL of this article: www.globalresearch.ca/index.php?context=va&aid=25974
Global Research, August 11, 2011

After a conflagration of arson attacks, riots and looting in several British cities, including the capital, London, there is a sense of order having been restored from a massive mobilisation of police forces.

There now follows the tracking down and prosecution of individuals involved in the mayhem. Conservative Prime Minister is leading “the fight back” to punish anyone who has inflicted damage and destruction to Britain’s society.

The events have visibly shocked the political establishment of all parties, police chiefs and the mainstream media. But what should be more shocking is the myopic and incredibly banal commentary that is being offered to “explain” the outburst of street disturbances and violence.

As pundits sit in comfy television studios trading inane insights about the “evils” of individual immorality, criminality, dysfunctional families, gang culture – in the background, so to speak, are the glaring signs scrolling across the screens of the cause of this societal breakdown. And yet the preponderant signs escape the mental radar of pundits and politicians alike.

The fact that the capitalist economic system is in worldwide meltdown is not even registered in the mainstream commentary. This is the system that the mainstream political parties have facilitated and fawned over, whether Labour, Conservative or Liberal, and which has resulted in social devastation across Britain while the corporate and financial elite has ransacked economic resources. This system of legalised looting has been going on for decades, but certainly took on a precipitous dynamic starting with Cameron’s Conservative predecessor Margaret Thatcher in the early 1980s. Labour’s Tony Blair and Gordon Brown were merely purveyors of the same dynamic.

In surveying today’s Britain, Karl Marx words are so right: “An accumulation of wealth at one pole of society indicates an accumulation of misery and overwork at the other”. That is the hallmark of capitalism in today’s Britain, the US and Europe.

All other problems are largely secondary in causation. Crime, racist policing, disorder, the lack of police budgets to restore order (so ironic), alienation and self-destruction, and so many other ills including the mobilisation of resources to fund illegal wars – most of our present day problems flow from the tap root of dysfunction that is the capitalist economy.

Speaking in the House of Commons Thursday, Prime Minister Cameron's “explanation” for the outbreak of street disturbances across England demonstrates a total ignorance and poverty of understanding on his part of the nature of the breakdown in his society. He blames it on “criminality pure and simple” and “pockets of sickness” and “lack of individual morality and responsibility”.

This view is largely echoed in the British political establishment of all parties and the media.

The looting, thievery and lawlessness that Cameron so condemns is but the reflection at the street level of British society of what is taking place on a much greater scale at the upper echelons of government and the economy.

Despite the appearance of pinstripe suits and well-groomed accents, we can, if we are honest, see decades of looting and thievery of economic and financial resources by corporate elites aided and abetted by Labour and Conservative governments. The taxpayer bailout of corrupt banks initiated by Labour PM Gordon Brown and now overseen by Cameron, paid for in large part by austerity in public spending cuts, is but the latest manifestation of official robbing of the majority to swell the already outrageous wealth of the ruling elite class.

Cameron and his gang of plumy-accented thugs are gunning for $150 billion in public spending cuts to pay for the criminal enterprise known as British banking. This is racketeering that a street gang in London’s east end can only marvel at... and indeed, in a very real way, only emulate.

Combined with that looting by the elite we see the total lawlessness and criminality of British governments who have worked hand in glove with other criminal governments to launch wars of aggression (Nuremburg standard war crimes) in Afghanistan, Iraq, and now Libya, resulting in the deaths of over one million civilians. Where is individual responsibility for that mass murder and destruction Mr Cameron?

This social decay and necrotism is a symptom of the collapse of capitalism, an economic system that enriches an elite at the cost of the majority. It polarises political power beyond democratic accountability to the point where, among other deformities, wars and planetary looting are being carried out even blatantly against the consent of the majority public.


So when Cameron and his political cronies fulminate about pockets of sickness, looting, criminality, lawlessness, and the need for “consequences for actions” – his words and exhortations are so richly ironic and benighted.

For he is inadvertently describing the very society and world that capitalism creates in its own image. The indoctrination of Cameron's mind and that of the entire political establishment prevents them from seeing the inferno for the sparks. An inferno that the government of Cameron and his Labour predecessors, and in other western countries, have been dousing fuel on with their slavish policies aiding and abetting capitalist kleptocracy, both at home and abroad.

The real lessons from Britain will not dawn on, never mind be drawn on, by mainstream politicians or media. And the same can be said for the US and other western countries. To paraphrase a slogan used by former US President Clinton: “It’s the capitalist economy, stupid.”

Health & Healing / Magnesium Fountain of Youth
« on: August 03, 2011, 07:14:22 PM »
 
   
 
Why Are We Not Hearing More About Magnesium?


Magnesium is one of the four most important minerals your body requires for cellular health. Magnesium soothes the sympathetic nervous system (providing deeper rest), and is essential for the production of amino acids that are critical for virtually every chemical reaction in your body.

There is a documented epidemic of magnesium deficiency in America, and yet, the medical industry is trying to deal with it using drugs instead of effective supplements. Why supplements? Because the food that is grown on our depleted soils no longer contains enough magnesium to sustain you in a healthy state.

How do you know that there is an epidemic of magnesium deficiency taking place? Let me list some of the symptoms: road rage (instability, quick to anger), restless leg (twitchy nervous behaviors), high blood pressure, arthritis, diabetes, tooth cavities, sleep disorders, cramps, migraines, panic attacks, depression ... Have you seen any of this around you lately?

When you restore vital magnesium to the body, you enable cellular regeneration to exceed degeneration. That means you can reverse the symptoms, even if they are labeled "there is no cure for ..."

Magnesium is critical for your cellular health, your nervous system, regenerating & maintaining living cells, and producing amino acids (critical for virtually every reaction in the body).

It is impossible to rebuild magnesium levels through oral supplementation - because of the bowel flush reaction ... your body cannot and will not retain it if it is asked to pass from the digestive tract directly into your blood. It will be retained when it is absorbed directly into your extra-cellular fluid through your skin.

Let me share some comments from users of Magnesium Oil:

The magnesium is the best thing that has happened to me. I take daily baths and come out feeling like a million dollars. It melts the tension away better than any product I have ever used. I completely submerge myself in the bath allowing my hair to soak in it as well. The color is changing, the slight graying is disappearing. Although not for everyone while submerged I do some meditation. While under water you block out the world and the
magnesium relaxes you and puts you in a perfect state of balance and peace. If you could bottle this state of euphoria you could make a million dollars. Enjoy!!

"I have been seeing my cardiologist for 6 years due to long standing heart problems. He has been trying to get my blood pressure and cholesterol down. My blood pressure would often shoot up suddenly and I would get chills and shake all over.

"After little over two months with Magnesium Oil the erratic blood pressure and the chills have decreased dramatically. Another major change is that the scratchy eyes that tormented me due to deposits of a heart medicine have cleared up.

"My blood pressure was normal. My cholesterol was remarkable, as the doctor put it. At the end of his examination, he said, "You obviously look much healthier, but you also appear younger."

STEALING THE WORLD ...



... COUNTRY BY COUNTRY

Jacob Rothschild, Evelyn de Rothschild and their bloodline clan


 
The David Icke Newsletter

Another consequence of this was the transfer of land from the ownership of the state to a 'World Conservation Bank' (WCB), now operating under a different name, which was proposed by a Rothschild at the Fourth World Wilderness Conference in Colorado in 1987. This was another aspect of the plan called Agenda 21 that aims to remove humans from most parts of the world, cull billions from the population, and house the rest in high-rise cities awash with surveillance and control. The World Conservation Bank was nothing to do with helping desperate countries and everything to do with a land-grab for Agenda 21.
George W Hunt, an accountant and investment consultant, was an official host of the World Wilderness Conference and he had been researching some of the 'conspiracy theory' information that was beginning to circulate. Hunt told Moneychanger magazine that the World Conservation Bank was designed as a world central bank to steal more land while claiming it was being done to reduce debt and 'help the environment'. Two very familiar names also came up. George Hunt said:

'... the banker Edmond de Rothschild was at the meeting for six days. Edmond de Rothschild was personally conducting the monetary matters and creation of this World Conservation Bank, in the company of Michael Sweatman of the Royal Bank of Canada. Those two were like Siamese twins, and that's why I say that it appears they were running at least the money side of this conference and I would say the conference was primarily to get money. Also, David Rockefeller (of Chase Manhattan Bank) was there and gave a speech on Sunday ...'

The scam was to transfer the debts from the Third World countries to the World Conservation Bank and, in return, those countries would hand over land. Any other organisation that took over the WCB would inherit ownership of vast tracts of the Earth. A fact sheet published by the Secretariat of the Wilderness Conference said:

'...plans for the WCB propose that it act as an intermediary between certain developing countries and multilateral or private banks to transfer a specific debt to the WCB, thus substituting an existing "doubtful debt" in the bank's books for a new loan to the WCB. In return for having been relieved of its debt obligation, the debtor country would transfer to the WCB natural resource assets of "equivalent value".'

George Hunt delivered a written protest to David Rockefeller via his bodyguard, Hunt says that he received a warning from Rockefeller's office saying that: 'I'd better stay out of politicking or I'd regret it.' These are nice people. The World Conservation Bank morphed into the 'Global Environment Facility' and it is doing precisely what Rothschild and Rockefeller proposed.
