Is ANYONE Worth This Much Money ???

Here in a nutshell is what is wrong with US business these days.

Yahoo CEO Marissa Mayer is EXTREMELY well paid:

Yahoo compensated CEO Marissa Mayer with $42.1 million in 2015, mostly due to stock and option awards, according to a regulatory filing on Friday.

Mayer's compensation soared 69 percent year-over-year, even though Yahoo shares sunk 34 percent in 2015.

None of Yahoo's primary executives earned a bonus in 2015, but that's largely been the case over the past three years. Mayer earned a $1 million salary, $11.8 million in stock awards, $28.2 million in options and $1.1 million through a nonequity incentive plan.

You can read the rest @

And apparently her upcoming severance package will be worth another $55 million:

Yahoo’s chief executive, Marissa Mayer, will walk away with a $55 million severance package if the company’s auction of its Internet operations culminates in a sale that ousts her from her job.

The payout, which was disclosed in a regulatory filing on Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, would consist of cash, stock awards and other benefits if she is forced out within a year after a sale.

So ... almost $100 million in two years.

For doing what? Have you looked at Yahoo lately? I don't see anything there worth that kind of money for just one person, do you? I wouldn't pay that much for the whole company.

Was Hillary Responsible For Sarin Gas Attacks In Syria ???

The list of crimes seemly committed by our would-be first woman President just keeps growing and growing:

However, now, for the first time, [Seymour] Hersh has implicated Hillary Clinton directly in this “rat line.” In an interview with Alternet.org, Hersh was asked about the then-U.S.-Secretary-of-State’s role in the Benghazi Libya U.S. consulate’s operation to collect weapons from Libyan stockpiles and send them through Turkey into Syria for a set-up sarin-gas attack, to be blamed on Assad in order to ‘justify’ the U.S. invading Syria, as the U.S. had invaded Libya to eliminate Gaddafi. Hersh said:

"That ambassador who was killed, he was known as a guy, from what I understand, as somebody, who would not get in the way of the CIA. As I wrote, on the day of the mission he was meeting with the CIA base chief and the shipping company. He was certainly involved, aware and witting of everything that was going on. And there’s no way somebody in that sensitive of a position is not talking to the boss, by some channel."

And that particular boss was Hillary Clinton.

By the way, the phrase "by some channel" is interesting. What if that channel was the "continuity of government" system set up as part of the Doomsday Project? Every military command and diplomatic post has access to it, and it's extremely secure and bomb proof (that's the whole idea). It allegedly was used by LTC Oliver North to run weapons to Iran and also by Dick Cheney to coordinate certain aspects of the 9/11 attacks which are misunderstood even to this day.

Hey Peter Dale Scott, why don't you look into this?

All You Need To Know About TPP

From what I hear, Wall Street, pharmaceuticals, telecom, big polluters and outsourcers are all salivating at the chance to rig the deal in the upcoming trade talks. So the question is: Why are the trade talks secret? You’ll love this answer. Boy, the things you learn on Capitol Hill. I actually have had supporters of the deal say to me, ‘They have to be secret, because if the American people knew what was actually in them, they would be opposed.’

You guessed it - this is no longer a democracy. Not by a long shot.

So ... when does the revolution start?

You guessed it again - NEVER. At least not a revolution by We The People. In spite of all those guns we allegedly possess, we're basically a pack of cowards.

Russia Leads World In Wheat Exports

Remember when the USA was the world's largest exporter of wheat? Not anymore:

Russia has become the world’s leader in the export of wheat, surpassing the United States and Canada, Russian Minister of Agriculture Alexander Tkachev said Thursday.

“Russia supplies about 25 million tons of wheat on the external market by the end of the agricultural 2016 year. We became the world’s leading wheat exporter, surpassing the United States and Canada,” Tkachev was quoted as saying by Russian news agency TASS.

According to the Ministry of Agriculture, Russia last year achieved record levels in the harvest of corn (13.2 million tons), rice (1.1 million tons), soybeans (2.7 million tons) and buckwheat (900,000 tons). The total grain harvest amounted to 104.8 million tons.

They finally have the means to bury us.

Debt Overwhelms Cash Flow

Here is what is really happening in our so-called "recovery":

By now it is a well-known fact that corporations have no real way of generating organic growth in this economy, so they are relying on two things to boost share prices: multiple expansion (courtesy of central banks) and debt-funded buybacks (courtesy of central banks), the latter of which requires the firm to generate excess incremental cash. Incidentally, as SocGen showed last year, all the newly created debt in the 20th century has gone for just one thing: to fund stock buybacks.

Justice Israeli-Style

Is the common foot soldier responsible for all the crimes of a war? Apparently the Israelis think so:

A 94-year-old former Auschwitz guard on trial in Germany apologized in court to victims on Friday, telling them he regretted being part of a "criminal organization" that had killed so many people and caused such suffering.

"I'm ashamed that I knowingly let injustice happen and did nothing to oppose it", said Reinhold Hanning, a former Nazi SS officer, seated in a wheelchair in the court in Detmold.

Hanning is charged with being an accessory to the murder of at least 170,000 people.

This implies the following also is true:

*Every US drone operator is responsible for all the "collateral murder" deaths.

*Every guard at Abu Ghraib is responsible for all the injuries and deaths which took place there.

*Every US Marine who participated in the massacre of the inhabitants of Fallujah is a murderer or an accessory to murder.

*Everyone who knew our 2003 invasion of Iraq was based on lies also is a murderer or an accessory to murder.

Is that what we want? If so, let the arrests begin.

Our Electoral System Is Broken

US elections have devolved to the level of a so-called banana republic:

This high-stakes, emotionally charged election cycle has seen widespread closure of polling locations, unprecedented voter roll purges, voting machine failures and extreme waiting lines that cause countless voters to turn away without having cast a ballot. Many have been given "provisional" ballots that are simply not counted. Irregularities in Arizona, North Carolina, Wisconsin and New York have engendered intraparty accusations and lawsuits, exposing a dysfunctional and often undemocratic election process.

California Ashamed Of John Wayne

This ain't not your daddy's country anymore:

What a California lawmaker intended as a benign resolution honoring a late, world-renowned movie icon exploded into an emotional debate over decades-old racist comments.

Why Does Mark Zuckerberg Want Us To Starve ???

The manchild with that malevolent smile is at it again:

"While helping to connect the world will always be the most important thing I do, there are more global challenges that I feel a responsibility to help solve - like helping to cure all diseases by the end of this century, upgrading our education system so it’s personalized for each student, and protecting our environment from climate change," he wrote.

Dear Mark, perhaps you should reconsider:

*If you cure all diseases, the human population will overshoot and billions will starve to death.

*Your personalized education system sounds like "separate but equal". Good luck with that.

*Most plans I have seen for combating climate change make energy too expensive for the common person.

It's a shame that such great wealth is concentrated in the hands of someone who really does not have the best interests of We The People in mind.

By the way, that wealth is based on a scam which centers around We The People giving you access to our information for which we get nothing of value in return. Don't you have a responsibility to at least ask us how WE would like you to spend our enormous gift to you? Or are you so smart that you don't have to consult mere insects like us?

Why Was Tritium Found At 9/11 Ground Zero ???

With 9/11 back in the news, is there anything still worth investigating about that tragedy other than the apparent involvement of Saudi Arabia?

According to at least one author, the answer is "yes" - the possibility that WTC1, WTC2, WTC6, and/or WTC7 were damaged or brought down by nuclear bombs. You can read about his theory here:

https://www.intellihub.com/secret-barometric-bomb-technologies-nuclear-technologies-wtc-towers-proof/

I have written about similar theories before. As I stated many times, chemical evidence suggesting the presence of fission products and/or byproducts of nuclear fusion at 9/11 Ground Zero is NOT conclusive proof of the use of nuclear bombs unless confirmed by radiation measurements, and to my knowledge this has NEVER been done.

You can find my previous posts on this subject here:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2014/09/was-911-nuclear-attack.html

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2015/01/did-911-produce-radioactive-fallout.html

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2015/07/no-radiation-at-wtc-no-nuclear-bombs-on.html

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2015/10/more-911-nuclear-nonsense.html

As far as the tritium hypothesis goes, some have said there were only two known sources of tritium at the World Trade Center site - (1) gunsights on weapons present at the complex, and (2) exit signs on the two aircraft which hit the twin towers. Since neither of these putative sources can account for the amount of tritium alleged to have been found at or around the site after 9/11, they have concluded the residual MUST be evidence of the use of some sort of nuclear bombs.

However, everyone is neglecting the largest source of tritium in the region - the Indian Point nuclear power station on the Hudson River and only 35 miles north of Manhattan. Indian Point is well known to be a producer and leaker of tritium into the environment. You can read about it here and other places on the Internet:

https://www.rt.com/usa/332087-indian-point-tritium-leak/

There are several ways Indian Point tritium could have found its way to Ground Zero. These include accidental and/or intentional releases into the Hudson River, and the accidental and/or intentional dumping of waste at various locations during the 9/11 attacks and their aftermath.

Or is it more reasonable to believe the US government was complicit in a nuclear attack on its own soil?

Will Austria Block TTIP ???

Here's a ray of hope from central Europe:

Many times before, politicians who promised to block such "trade deals" have reneged after they were elected (e.g., in Canada and Mexico). Something tells me the same thing might happen in Austria.

But we can always hope.

Wouldn't it be ironic if the land of Hitler's birth were to be the one country which stops the new fascism represented by TPP, TTIP, and TISA?

ICE Released Nearly 20,000 Criminals Into US In 2015

Does this sound like a rational policy to you?

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency in 2015 decided not to deport but release 19,723 criminal illegal immigrants, including 208 convicted of murder, over 900 convicted of sex crimes and 12,307 of drunk driving, according to new government numbers.

Overall, those released into virtually every state and territory of America had a total of 64,197 convictions among them, for an average of 3.25 convictions each, according to an analysis by the Center for Immigration Studies. ICE also said that the group were convicted of 8,234 violent crimes.

A former colleague of mine used to work counselling people arrested for DUI in Texas. He said the state had an amnesty program which released drunk drivers back onto the streets. He also said that illegal Mexican immigrants arrested for DUI automatically went to the head of the line for this program, and that once released they were not tracked or penalized in any way. Bizarre, to say the least.

How many of the 900 sex offenders mentioned above were put into the sex offender database and/or otherwise tracked after released by ICE? I would guess few if any.

We The People are being attacked by "our own" government. Why are we putting up with this nonsense?

Is it any surprise that many are voting for Trump?

The One Thing Which Separates Democrats From Republicans

During a 1977 interview with David Frost, former President Richard Nixon made the following oft-quoted statement:

"When the president does it, that means it is not illegal."

The one thing which separates Democrats from Republicans is that when a Democrat is President this statement is true, while when a Republican is President this statement is false.

Considering the number of crimes which have been committed in the name of the US national security state, we need to ask ourselves how this dichotomy came to be. The answer would reveal why we no longer can tell right from wrong.

Did CIA Make Google ???

Here is a fascinating, comprehensive account of the founding and rise of Google:

In reality, Google is a smokescreen behind which lurks the US military-industrial complex. The inside story of Google’s rise, revealed here for the first time, opens a can of worms that goes far beyond Google, unexpectedly shining a light on the existence of a parasitical network driving the evolution of the US national security apparatus, and profiting obscenely from its operation.

Why Is There A Measles Outbreak In Memphis ???

According to this report in The New York Times, the CDC is scrambling to determine the cause of a measles outbreak in Memphis, TN. Note how "failure to immunize" once again is being blamed:

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/04/27/health/6-measles-cases-reported-in-memphis-area-exceeding-rest-of-us.html

Note well that the federal government has been dumping Mexican immigrants in Memphis. You can read about it here:

http://brennerbrief.com/did-this-viral-facebook-post-show-illegal-immigrants-being-given-social-security-numbers/

As an informed layman, it I had to guess who brought measles to Memphis, it would be these improperly screened immigrants.

Even the CDC admits measles outbreaks normally are caused by importing the disease from outside the US:

Every year, measles is brought into the United States by unvaccinated travelers (Americans or foreign visitors) who get measles while they are in other countries. They can spread measles to other people who are not protected against measles, which sometimes leads to outbreaks.

Africa Poised To Invade Europe

Here is an ironic twist of fate if I ever saw one:

The UNHCR calculates that there are currently 60 million displaced people worldwide. More than half of the military conflicts contributing to that total are to be found on the African continent, in places like Libya, Somalia, Nigeria and Mali. In addition, a devastating drought is ravaging Ethiopia and Eritrea and a famine is on the horizon.

In total, 1.3 million refugees applied for asylum in the EU last year. Prior to its closure in March, the main path to Europe was the Balkan Route, primarily used by Syrians, Iraqis, Afghans and Pakistanis. Now, however, the route across the Mediterranean is coming back into focus. In the summer months, the sea can be crossed with relative ease.

NATO foolishly destroyed Libya, and the policies and actions of the US, UK, France, NATO, and Israel have ravaged most of Africa over the centuries. It's thus only fair these oppressed people should now be invading the homelands of their oppressors.

What goes around, comes around.

By the way, note well the only oppressor country which is NOT being so invaded is Israel. Why is that? The Israelis might argue it's because they are not oppressors, but that is complete BS.

Is Big Pharma Giving Our Children Autism ???

Here is yet another celebrity speaking out about how their child became autistic:

Interviewed a couple of years ago about a recent film role, the reporter, who had read Quinn’s bio, began asking if he and his wife noticed their daughter’s condition early on, Quinn replied, “Well, after she had an extreme reaction to vaccination. (Before that) she was a normal child.” When the interviewer noted that there was a lot of debate surrounding the link between autism and vaccinations, Quinn simply stated, “This happened.”

In a 2012 interview with a film critic, Quinn describes in more detail what happened to his daughter. “She was a normal child,” he said. “Way above normal, in fact. And then she received a vaccination. She got a 106-degree fever, she turned blue and she woke up the next day a completely damaged child after that.” The official diagnosis was severe autism.

In another media interview, Quinn describes his daughter as walking, talking, and developing at a rate higher than average. But after receiving the MMR vaccine, she experienced a high fever and other symptoms, then suddenly became uncoordinated and her arm lifted up. “Of course the doctors are all saying, ‘Oh, that’s normal,’” he has said.

Drug Cartels Helping ISIS Scout Targets Inside US

Is this what you would call "homeland security"?

Mexican drug traffickers help Islamic terrorists stationed in Mexico cross into the United States to explore targets for future attacks, according to information forwarded to Judicial Watch by a high-ranking Homeland Security official in a border state. Among the jihadists that travel back and forth through the porous southern border is a Kuwaiti named Shaykh Mahmood Omar Khabir, an ISIS operative who lives in the Mexican state of Chihuahua not far from El Paso, Texas. Khabir trained hundreds of Al Qaeda fighters in Pakistan, Afghanistan and Yemen and has lived in Mexico for more than a year, according to information provided by JW’s government source.

Now Khabir trains thousands of men - mostly Syrians and Yemenis - to fight in an ISIS base situated in the Mexico-U.S. border region near Ciudad Ju├írez, the intelligence gathered by JW’s source reveals. Staking out U.S. targets is not difficult and Khabir actually brags in an Italian newspaper article published last week that the border region is so open that he “could get in with a handful of men, and kill thousands of people in Texas or in Arizona in the space of a few hours.” Foreign Affairs Secretary Claudia Ruiz, Mexico’s top diplomat, says in the article that she doesn’t understand why the Obama administration and the U.S. media are “culpably neglecting this phenomenon,” adding that “this new wave of fundamentalism could have nasty surprises in store for the United States.”

This disturbing development appears on the Open Source Enterprise, the government database that collects and analyzes valuable material from worldwide print, broadcast and online media sources for the U.S. intelligence community. Only registered federal, state and local government employees can view information and analysis in the vast database and unauthorized access can lead to criminal charges. Updated data gathered on Khabir reveals he’s 52 years old and was ordered to leave Kuwait about a decade ago over his extremist positions. Khabir is currently on ISIS’s (also known as ISIL) payroll and operates a cell in an area of Mexico known as Anapra, according to the recently obtained information.

Everyone involved in this fiasco including Obama ad-Dajjal should be impeached or fired, and barred from any future government office, contract, or employment.

By the way, Judicial Watch is one of the few organizations which is effectively combating the lies and outright criminality of "our" government. We would be well served if we could turn operation of the Department of Justice (sic) over to them.

Australia Will Vaccinate By Spraying From The Air

Here's a putrid Vegemite sandwich from down under:

It appears that Australia has approved a license application from Big Pharma company PaxVax for the intentional release of a GMO vaccine consisting of live bacteria into Queensland, via the use of chemtrails distributed by airplane emissions.

According to wikipedia a chemtrail is defined as: “a visible trail left in the sky by an aircraft and believed by some to consist of chemical or biological agents released as part of a covert operation, rather than the condensed water of a vapour trail.”

No longer the stuff of so-called conspiracy theory or covert operations, what we are seeing here is a human population vaccination programme that should alarm absolutely everyone.

State Dept Covered Hillary's Butt

Another revelation of how Obama ad-Dajjal's minions have been covering Hillary's butt:

The Obama State Department last week admitted it withheld a key Benghazi email of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton from Judicial Watch since at least September 2014.  If the State Department disclosed the email when first supposedly found, Clinton’s email server and her hidden emails would have been disclosed nearly two years ago, before Clinton authorized the alleged deletion of tens of thousands emails.

China Building Robot Worker Army

Here is a sign of things to come, perhaps the most important development in our lifetime:

Wages in Shanghai have more than doubled in the past seven years, and the company that owns the factory, Cambridge Industries Group, faces fierce competition from increasingly high-tech operations in Germany, Japan, and the United States. To address both of these problems, CIG wants to replace two-thirds of its 3,000 workers with machines this year. Within a few more years, it wants the operation to be almost entirely automated, creating a so-called “dark factory.” The idea is that with so few people around, you could switch the lights off and leave the place to the machines.

These are two extremely important questions which are not being addressed publicly by the powers that be. What do you suppose they're planning when they meet in secret?

My guess is they are coming up with a way to cull the herd of useless human eaters. Maybe we'll be sold to ETs.

Incitement is the action of provoking unlawful behavior or urging someone to behave unlawfully.

And then read this report:

Ownership = Coercion + Violence

Here's a nifty little essay about the concept of ownership:

There are a large handful of things that make humans uniquely different from animals. In many other areas - language, abstract reasoning, music-making, conceptions of self and fairness, large-scale cooperation, etc. - humans and animals vary (hugely) in degree and kind. But they still share those phenotypic behavioral traits.

I’d like to explore one of those unique differences: ownership of property. Animals don’t own property. Ever. They can and do possess and control goods and territories (possession and control are importantly distinct), but they never “own” things. Ownership is a uniquely human construct.

* * * * * * * *

It’s not hard to see the crucial fact ... property rights are ultimately based, purely, on coercion and violence. If the controlling tribe can’t enforce its claim through violence, their “ownership” is meaningless. And those claimed rights are not just inclusionary (the one tribe can use the water). Property rights are primarily or even purely exclusionary. Owners can prevent others from doing anything with the owners’ property. Get off my lawn!

When push comes to shove (literally), when brass tacks meet the rubber on the road (sorry, couldn’t resist), ownership and property rights are based purely on violence and the threat of violence.

You can read the rest @
http://evonomics.com/ownership-evolution-property/

That strongly implies that the 80 people who own one half of the world's wealth are the chief source of coercion and violence in our lives. You can find their names and read about them here:

http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/meet-the-80-people-who-are-as-rich-as-half-the-world/

Among other things, "trade deals" (i.e., undeclared treaties) like TPP, TTIP, and TISA will be used to enforce property rights, especially "intellectual property" rights. And since the vast majority of humanity owns no such property, these treaties will subject We The People to previously unknown levels of coercion and violence.

So why in hell would "our" Congress even consider voting for them?

The Rich Live Longer

Whaddya know? If you are rich, you live longer:

Rich people live longer than poor people. No big news there - we’ve known that health tracks wealth for quite some time now.

But here’s what we haven’t known: The life-expectancy gap between rich and poor in the United States is actually accelerating.

Since 2001, American men among the nation’s most affluent 5 percent have seen their lifespans increase by more than two years. American women in that bracket have registered an almost three-year extension to their life expectancy.

It sounds not unlike what US forces might do under similar circumstances. I wonder how many of those involved were trained at the US Army School of the Americas (a.k.a. the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation)?

The Sordid Family History Of Rafael Edward "Ted" Cruz

This is the most comprehensive analysis of Senator Cruz's family tree that I have yet seen. Its conclusion is the following:

Ted Cruz’s Natural Born Citizen status is in question. For that matter his citizenship status is in question. Cruz is an agent for a foreign power and foreign invader. Rafael Edward “Ted” Cruz is not a United States citizen.

Twice in a row now we've had presidential candidates whose citizenship status should have been officially questioned and resolved but was not.

Taking everything into account, it is quite likely that Obama ad-Dajjal and Ted Cruz both are CIA creations and globalist stooges ... true "Manchurian candidates" (or Kenyan and Cuban candidates, respectively, if you prefer).

Our Bullshit Recovery

Has the US economy "recovered"? I don't think it has. Neither does this author:

There are three main reasons the vaunted economic recovery still feels false to so many. The first is the labor participation rate, which plunged at the start of the Great Recession and discounts the millions of Americans who have been out of work for six months or more. The second is “the 1099 economy,” a term The New Republic’s David Dayen coined to refer to the soaring number of temps, contractors, freelancers, and other often involuntarily self-employed workers. The third is a surge in low-wage service jobs, coupled with a corresponding decrease in middle-class jobs.

Employment statistics in particular have a habit of eclipsing the real story. As any worker will tell you, it is not the number of jobs that matters most, but what kind of jobs are available, what they pay, and how that pay measures against the cost of living. The 5% unemployment rate, other words, is hiding the devastating story of underemployment, wage loss, and precariousness that defines life for millions of Americans.

We have definitely had a perestroika (restructuring), but a "recovery" is nowhere in sight.

And what did We The People get in return for this ersatz "recovery". NOTHING except the promise of even more hardship in our future.

The Root Causes Of 9/11

Nearly 15 years later, we still apparently do not understand the root causes of the 9/11 attacks. Here's an example of why:

US Democratic presidential candidate and Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders on Sunday said that America has to get to the "root cause" of the September 11, 2001 terror attacks, explaining that unanswered questions concerning Saudi Arabia need to be addressed.

During an interview on NBC's "Meet the Press," Sanders voiced his support for Senate legislation that would allow victims of terror attacks to sue foreign governments in federal court.

You can read the rest of this gibberish @
http://www.jpost.com/Diaspora/Sanders-We-need-to-get-to-the-root-cause-of-September-11-attacks-452176

We're not going to find the root causes of 9/11 in lawsuits against Iran, Saudi Arabia, or anyone else ... no matter what their involvement.

We were given some damn good clues to those root causes immediately after the attacks (on 9/12/2001) by former Professor Ward Churchill. If you want to know why we were attacked, I suggest you read his essay "'Some People Push Back': On the Justice of Roosting Chickens":

http://www.kersplebedeb.com/mystuff/s11/churchill.html

But if the real reason you want to pick the scab off this old wound is to gouge a lot of money out of some Muslims, then don't bother to read anything by Churchill or anyone else. Ignorance is bliss, and it seems to have served us quite well so far. 

Robot Farmers In Japan

The robot revolution continues apace:

As the average age of farmers globally creeps higher and retirement looms, Japan has a solution: robots and driver-less tractors.

The Group-of-Seven agriculture ministers meet in Japan’s northern prefecture of Niigata this weekend for the first time in seven years to discuss how to meet increasing food demand as aging farmers retire without successors. With the average age of Japanese farmers now 67, Agriculture Minister Hiroshi Moriyama will outline his idea of replacing retiring growers with Japanese-developed autonomous tractors and backpack-carried robots.

Eventually the food they harvest will be sold outside of Japan (assuming it's not radioactive).

Why? Japan's population is rapidly declining, as proven by the fact that more adult diapers are now sold in Japan than baby diapers. You can read about it here:

Another Black Mass Planned For OKC

For some reason, Satan is becoming very powerful in OKC:

A Satanic group is scheduled to hold a “black mass” at the government-owned Oklahoma City Civic Center in August, prompting more than 107,000 people to sign an online petition demanding that the event be cancelled.

Dakhma of Angra Mainyu, a Satanist group co-founded by registered sex offender Adam Daniels, is set to hold a so-called black mass at a performing arts center in Oklahoma City on August 15.

“The consumption of the Mary by Jai Kali Maa, is an event that will have two seperate [sic] rituals that will show the evolution from Satanism to Ahrimanism. The first ritual will [be] the black mass as done in 2014, and the second ritual will be the consumption of Mary by Jai Kali Maa. The second ritual will educate the public on the practice of Ahrimanism,” the description of the event says on Oklahoma City Civic Center’s upcoming shows page.

A traditionalist Catholic organization, Tradition, Family and Property (TFP), said in the petition that the black mass “offends more than 1 billion Catholics worldwide, 200,000 Catholics in Oklahoma and countless more God-loving Americans,” calling for the city to cancel it.

The group’s petition has so far managed to garner over 107,000 signatures, with a goal of reaching 200,000.

“Every Black Mass is a direct, deliberate and sinful act of hatred against God. Often, a Consecrated Host is stolen from a Catholic Church and then used to desecrate, mock and insult the Catholic Mass,” the petition states. “The Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ is attacked in a most vile and unspeakable manner. These insults against God are not only offensive to Christians, but also repulsive to everyone of good will.”

The event is a follow-up to a 2014 ritual, which was also held by Dakhma of Angra Mainyu at the same city-owned property in Oklahoma’s capital, that sparked similar outrage from Christian groups.

Additional descriptions of what will take place can be found here, including the rationale for calling this an "educational" event:

https://churchofahriman.net/tag/consumption-of-mary/

I think OKC is being spiritually attacked in this manner because it is a strong, thriving Christian community. I also think this is why the real perpetrators of the OKC bombing chose the city for their attack. It appears not to have been a "terrorist attack" per se, but a sophisticated attempt by the followers of Satan to use our deepest fears against us.

While I agree with the petitioners that these ceremonies are a horrible insult to Christianity, the US Constitution cannot be used to prevent them. America's founders may or may not have been Christians, but they did NOT create a Christian nation.

And whatever Christianity does exist in the USA is being slowly but surely strangled to death.

Senator Grassley Ready To Throw Hillary Under The Bus

In spite of Obama ad-Dajjal's lies, the Hillary email/espionage scandal is not just going to disappear:

On Friday, US Senator Chuck Grassley who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, and who has pushed for additional scrutiny of Clinton’s email use during her tenure as secretary of state, dropped a dramatic "hint" during a breakfast meeting with the Des Moines A.M. Rotary club when he suggested that the FBI "might leak", hypothetically-speaking of course, reports of its investigation into presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s use of a private email server as secretary of state.

In practically laying out the next steps in Hillarygate, Grassley said "an anonymous and unauthorized release of FBI investigative materials could result if officials at the agency believed prosecution of Clinton was stymied for political reasons" according to the Des Moines register.

“Is there going to be political interference? If there’s enough evidence to prosecute, will there be political interference?” Grassley wondered aloud on Friday. "And if there’s political interference, then I assume that somebody in the FBI is going to leak these reports and it’s either going to have an effect politically or it’s going to lead to prosecution if there’s enough evidence."

What lies, you may ask? Obama's OBVIOUS lies that he would not interfere with the investigation. You can read about those lies here:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2016/04/obama-is-lying-about-hillary.html

By the way, I like Chuck Grassley. He appears to be one of the few senators who is actually doing his job and not just licking Hillary's boots like the rest of them seem to be.

Why Are Police Preparing For Riots ???

Apparently police all over the world are preparing for widespread rioting:

Fascism doesn’t often sweep in overnight and take over some hapless nation’s government; rather, it gradually seeps into the cultural fabric — as is quietly taking place all around the globe, evidenced by an upsurge in sales of riot equipment that has gone largely unnoticed.

A new report from analysts with industry research group, Sandler Research, forecasts the Global Riot Control System Market for the next four years — but beyond a burgeoning market to parallel the expanding global police state, it appears world governments are also keenly aware of civilian discontent. Sandler predicts the market will have an annual growth of 3.5 percent, and makes a telling juxtaposition ... involving the United States:

Law enforcement agencies around the world are the biggest market for riot control systems. This market is expected to generate revenues of over USD 3.5 billion by the end of 2020. Countries such as the U.S., Iran, Egypt, Russia, China, and Thailand have started procuring riot control equipment and are investing heavily in [non-lethal weapons]. Moreover, special vehicles that are equipped with water cannon and reservoirs have been designed for security personnel, for use in areas of conflict to handle large crowds and demonstration. Demand for such equipment is expected to rise during the next few years.

What sort of rioting are US police preparing for? We The People have been remarkably patient in the face of continual provocations from local, state, and national governments. If we ever riot on a wide scale, it will be because of some HUGE disaster like a famine. Is that what they think is going to happen? If so, why not stockpile food instead of weapons?

More Obama Disasters

Obama ad-Dajjal apparently wants to leave office in a blaze of infamy. Here are his latest two fiascoes:

(1) The US President warned the UK would be “at the back of the queue” for a trade deal with America if it quit Brussels.

But his threat provoked outrage and scorn from pro-Brexit campaigners, who dismissed it as yet another scaremongering ploy from the pro-EU lobby.

Mr Obama, who will no longer be in office when decisions on a trade deal are made, delivered a lecture to the British people on why he thinks it is in the UK’s, America’s and the world’s best interests for Britain to vote to stay in the EU on June 23.

(2) Thousands of demonstrators have turned out in the German city of Hannover to protest a planned U.S.-Europe free trade agreement, a day before President Barack Obama arrives.

Police said Saturday that more than 20,000 people gathered for the demonstration.

Many in Germany regard the planned Trans-Atlantic Trade and Investment Partnership, or TTIP, with suspicion. Protesters Saturday carried placards with slogans such as "Yes We Can - Stop TTIP!"

I actually am surprised it took the people of Europe this long to realize that Obama ad-Dajjal always has been just a shill for globalists and corporations. More than likely the people of Europe recognized this from the start, but their lickspittle MSM refused to say anything about it.

The world will be a better place once this clown is out of office.

Update: And what does Obama ad-Dajjal then do when he finally gets to Germany?

US President Obama praises Angela Merkel's refugee policy. The United States hardly takes  on any refugees. The war in Syria is largely fueled by the US allies from the Gulf.

http://deutsche-wirtschafts-nachrichten.de/2016/04/23/obama-lobt-merkel-fuer-fluechtlingspolitik/

Sooner or later, Germans will realize the US is screwing them big time. When they do, will they finally reconcile with Russia? That would be my hope.

Israel Builds Walls, So Why Can't We ???

Here is the latest news from the world of wall building:

Israel is walling off an area in the Upper Galilee near the Lebanese border and the Israeli-occupied side of Golan, citing what it claims are security threats from Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement. 

Israel’s Channel 2 News has aired footage of Israeli troops constructing a wall in Kibbutz Misgav Am near the Lebanese border by placing sections of concrete next to each other.

Israeli regime officials claim the wall is meant to prevent the potential entry of Hezbollah fighters to conduct attacks.

You can read the rest @
http://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-building-another-wall-near-lebanese-border/5521266

Allegedly, Israel builds walls for "security", while US politicians suggest building walls for "racist" reasons.

Q: If we compared the following, what would we find?

*How many Israelis have been killed by Hezbollah, compared to how many US citizens have been raped and/or killed by Mexican immigrants?

*How much economic damage has Hezbollah done to Israel, compared to how much economic damage has been done to the US by Mexican drug cartels?

*How much disease has Hezbollah brought into Israel, compared to how much disease has been brought into the US by uncontrolled immigration?

A: Such a comparison will never be done officially, because Israel's walls stem from racism while our desires for a wall stem from a desire to protect ourselves, but no one can tell the difference anymore.
