The Result Of Obama's "Diplomacy"

Obama ad-Dajjal and Hillary Clinton are responsible for the destruction of Syria and the mass emigration of 5 million refugees from that former nation:

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2017/mar/30/syrian-refugee-number-passes-5m-mark-un-reveals

And some of you still admire them? You are sick, sick, sick.

Get it through your head - Bernie Sanders was stopped because he was the ONLY candidate whose presidency might have stopped the mass slaughter and destruction that Trump and Hillary had planned for the world.

The Gulf Between Rich And Poor

In a patch of scrubland across the road from the Facebook headquarters in Silicon Valley, a woman named Celma Aguilar recently walked along some overgrown train tracks. She stopped where a path forked into some vegetation, just a few hundred yards from the tourists taking photos by an enormous image of a “Like” icon at the campus entrance.

“Welcome to the mansion,” Aguilar said, gesturing to a rudimentary shelter of tarps hidden in the undergrowth.

The campsite is one of about 10 that dot the boggy terrain, and are a striking sight alongside the brightly painted, low-slung buildings housing the multi-billion-dollar corporation. The contrast epitomizes the Bay Area wealth gap.

Harold Schapelhouman, a fire chief whose department has dealt with conflagrations on the land, said he was struck by the disparities. “Their employees are very well taken care of. They have on-site medical facilities, dry cleaning, bicycle repair, they feed them and there are restaurants that are there. It’s amazing what Facebook does for its employees. And yet within eyeshot - it really isn’t that far – there are people literally living in the bushes.”

Schapelhouman said he was not blaming Facebook, though it is true that the success of technology companies has driven up real estate prices in the area. As a whole, California is one of the lowest-ranking US states for the availability of affordable housing, and has one-fifth of America’s homeless population. Irrespective of the utopianism that imbues Silicon Valley culture, the tech campuses are not immune to these broader social problems.

One could argue that Ms. Aguilar and her comrades are responsible for their own poverty. But I would counter with the statement that Facebook's wealth appears to be based upon what amounts to wholesale theft of data belonging to We The People.

At least Ms. Aguilar is being honest about her situation.

Bombs Away !!!

The relentless bombing of civilians in Iraq and Syria, the expanding intervention in Yemen and the open threats of military confrontation with Iran are all being carried out by the Pentagon with no public debate and the full complicity of the Democrats.

When you're a hammer, every problem looks like a nail. And when you're a former general, every dispute can be resolved with bullets, bombs, and other forms of coercion.

And please don't try to blame this on Trump - this is a sickness which goes to the very core of our government.

FBI Releases Bizarre 9-11 Photo

A week ago the FBI released some photos on the damage to the Pentagon from the 9-11 attacks. You can find them here:

https://vault.fbi.gov/9-11-attacks-investigation-and-related-materials/9-11-images

Perhaps the most bizarre photo is this one:


How can there be damage to the third ring when the second ring appears to be unscathed?

You can find an assessment of the photos here:

Maybe the hole in the outer wall was created by a "rapid wall breaching kit" of this sort:


That would explain why the outer hole touches the ground, when it is IMPOSSIBLE to fly a jet airliner that close to the surface at the speed one is alleged to have hit the building.

I dunno, I just think the "official story" is complete bullshit. What do you think?

The Most Important Fight Of All ???

"I envy you. You North Americans are very lucky. You are fighting the most important fight of all. You live in the belly of the beast."
Dr. Ernesto "Che" Guevara

Unfortunately, we're not fighting that fight any more. We're ASSISTING the beast in its destruction of the rest of humanity.

How did that happen?

By the way, is it possible to remove the mark of the beast? What did Jesus mean by this statement?

And if thy right hand offend thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee: for it is profitable for thee that one of thy members should perish, and not that thy whole body should be cast into hell.
Matthew 5:30 KJV

US Destroying The Fertile Crescent

Modern-day Iraq lies in the Fertile Crescent of Mesopotamia, the cradle of civilization where mankind flourished as it developed seed cultivation and its first farming techniques - all nourished by the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.

Generations of people have tilled the soil there since 8,000 BC, developing the seeds that grew into the many types of wheat seen around the world today.

But centuries of cultivation turned to dust in 2003, when former President George W. Bush invaded the country, planting seeds of war that would be sown for years to come.

Unfortunately, the United States took more than figurative seeds to Iraq.

While about two million civilians were killed as a result of the U.S. invasion of Iraq, the war is still ingrained in the U.S. psyche as a humanitarian effort to save the Iraqi people from a brutal dictator.

But what it actually did was pave the way for foreign corporations to descend upon the country and turn a profit on the chaos.

G-d created the Garden of Eden, but the US destroyed it. Our "way of life" is a death sentence not only for Iraq, but for this entire planet. Mr. Kissinger should be on trial for multiple genocides, but instead he thrives. Why is that?

By the way, we're doing more or less the same thing to Libya. Why? To bring the entire world under the US thumb.

Someday soon this will cause widespread famine. And then you will know what the ultimate US goal is - population reduction.

EU Vs. USA - The Next Big War ???

European Union boss Jean-Claude Juncker this afternoon issued a jaw-dropping threat to the United States, saying he could campaign to break up the country in revenge for Donald Trump’s supportive comments about Brexit.

Frankly, if the EU doesn't do something like this, they are toast. The US either will destroy Europe as an economic power or accomplish the equivalent by starting a war with Russia.

My advice to Europe - go your own way. If you think the US gives a damn about you, take a look at our broken promises to and treaties with American Indians and the Palestinians. The US only cares about the US; and that means the US national security state and the military-industrial-information-banking complex only. That cabal would GLADLY sacrifice the EU on the altar of US global hegemony.

In fact, they clearly already are.

Do We Need Climate Change "Red Teams" ???

Prominent scientists operating outside the scientific consensus on climate change urged Congress on Wednesday to fund "red teams" to investigate "natural" causes of global warming and challenge the findings of the United Nations' climate science panel.

The suggestion for a counter-investigative science force – or red team approach – was presented in prepared testimony by scientists known for questioning the influence of human activity on global warming. It comes at a time when President Donald Trump and other members of the administration have expressed doubt about the accepted science of climate change, and are considering drastic cuts to federal funding for scientific research.

A main mission of red teams would be to challenge the scientific consensus on climate change, including the work of the United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, whose reports are widely considered the authority on climate science.

https://www.stripes.com/news/us/experts-call-for-creation-of-red-teams-to-challenge-climate-science-1.461201#.WN0iEGnyupp

Something like this should ALREADY be part of climate change research, as both "null" and "alternative" hypotheses are basic features of the scientific method:

https://explorable.com/null-hypothesis

By the way, the CIA did something like this a while back, calling it a "Team B":

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Team_B

The problem inherent in such an approach is "which team's findings are you gonna believe?" Frankly, you're going to pick the one YOU like, and that typically will be the one that fits in with YOUR politics. In the past this has led to erroneous findings about the USSR ... and to the futile search for Saddam Hussein's non-existent WMDs.

Adding to the complexity of the problem is the amount of disinformation on the subject. For example, it is NOT true that 97% of scientists agree with the theory of man-made climate change (or whatever you wish to call it). You can read about that issue here:

The Hazard Of Listening To "Intelligent" People

The twin disasters known as nuclear power and nuclear weapons are perfect examples of the hazard of listening to "intelligent" people.

Here is a report outlining just one outcome of indulging in that hazard - the unsolvable problem of nuclear waste:

http://www.latimes.com/local/california/la-na-yucca-revival-20170329-story.html

Add to that the unsolvable problems of the Fukushima nuclear disaster and nuclear weapons themselves, and you have three extinction level possibilities - all stemming from a single decision.

Please recall that some of the most "intelligent" people of their day, including Nobel Laureates, decided for us that nuclear power and nuclear weapons were WONDERFUL things.

And now you're going to let another gang of so-called "intelligent" people unleash super-intelligent AI and robots on us?

ARE YOU F--KING CRAZY ???

A World Without Retirement ???

Bad news for residents of the UK - they can't retire:

We are entering the age of no retirement. The journey into that chilling reality is not a long one: the first generation who will experience it are now in their 40s and 50s. They grew up assuming they could expect the kind of retirement their parents enjoyed – stopping work in their mid-60s on a generous income, with time and good health enough to fulfill long-held dreams. For them, it may already be too late to make the changes necessary to retire at all.

In 2010, British women got their state pension at 60 and men got theirs at 65. By October 2020, both sexes will have to wait until they are 66. By 2028, the age will rise again, to 67. And the creep will continue. By the early 2060s, people will still be working in their 70s, but according to research, we will all need to keep working into our 80s if we want to enjoy the same standard of retirement as our parents.

You can read the rest @
https://www.theguardian.com/membership/2017/mar/29/a-world-without-retirement

But wait a minute - with the coming AI / robotics revolution, most of them will never have jobs in the first place. So theirs will NOT be "a world without jobs" or "a world without retirement"; it will be a world without income.

How can there be a solution to this mess?

Why Circumcision ???

Here is a report about the evils of female circumcision, a.k.a. female genital mutilation:

Should Sanctuary City Leaders Be Arrested ???

That's what this sheriff is suggesting:

A Massachusetts law enforcement official testifying before Congress on Tuesday called for leaders of sanctuary cities to be arrested.

Bristol County Sheriff Thomas Hodgson told the House Subcommittee on Illegal Immigration that sanctuary cities “have become magnets for illegal aliens, some of which have violent criminal records.”

“If these sanctuary cities are going to harbor and conceal criminal illegal aliens from ICE, which is in direct violation of Title 8 of the U.S. Code, federal arrest warrants should be issued for their elected officials,” Hodgson said. “Our citizens would be safer if we never stopped enforcing immigration law and if we never formed or turned a blind eye toward sanctuary cities.”

Will Russia Spill The Beans On Obama ???

In regards to the leaks of highly classified information making it's way out of the US Intelligence Community concerning Russia, a stern warning was issued [by the Russians]:

"Also, I would like to say that if the practice of leaking information that concerns not just the United States but also Russia, which has become a tradition in Washington in the past few years, continues, there will come a day when the media will publish leaks about the things that Washington asked us to keep secret, for example, things that happened during President Obama’s terms in office.

I'm tired of hearing lies about how wonderful Obama ad-Dajjal was. He wasn't. He was and is a liar and a murderer, and it's time the world discovered the truth about him.

Of course, I expect the US government and MSM would reject anything the Russians say, but I'm certain that We The People would be able to figure out what to believe and what not to.

Is This Why We're Attacking Syria ???

According to this report, the Israelis covet Syrian natural resources:

A Real Life Elysium

Here is the ultimate modern day "Galt's Gulch", of the type envisioned in the movie Elysium:

A New York architecture firm has unveiled designs for a skyscraper that is out of this world.

Deemed the ‘world’s tallest building ever’, Analemma Tower will be suspended from an orbiting asteroid 31,068 miles (50,000 km) above the Earth– and the only way to leave is by parachute.

The orbital path would swing the tower in a figure eight pattern between the northern and southern hemispheres each day, taking residents on a tour through different parts of the world - all in just a 24 hour orbital cycle.

FBI - Incompetent Or Complicit ???

Here is yet another report excusing the FBI for not stopping a terror attack on US soil:

Wednesday’s terror attack in London by a man who had been known to British law enforcement is just the latest reminder of how difficult it is to prevent an attack before it takes place. Here in the U.S., in just the past three years, more than 100 people have been arrested for ISIS-related crimes. The FBI devotes significant resources to identifying potential terrorists and sometimes spends years tracking them. The terror attack in Garland, Texas, two years ago was the first claimed by ISIS on U.S. soil. 

It’s mostly been forgotten because the two terrorists were killed by local cops before they managed to murder anyone. In looking into what happened in Garland, we were surprised to discover just how close the FBI was to one of the terrorists. Not only had the FBI been monitoring him for years, there was an undercover agent right behind him when the first shots were fired.

As I noted in this previous blog post, it's EASY to prevent attacks before they take place. The Israelis do it all the time:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2017/03/a-short-history-of-walls.html

The FBI, on the other hand, arrests only patsies whom their agents ensnare in sting operations while letting REAL threats roam free until they attack someone.

How many more times does this have to happen before we say enough is enough and demand to know what the f--k the FBI is doing? Are they merely incompetent, or are they complicit in these attacks?

What If Russia Invades Libya ???

This report allegedly tells you what you need to know if Russia intervenes in Libya:

Indications that Russia could intervene militarily in Libya’s messy civil war are growing. If it does, the Trump White House will face a tangle of unpleasant choices with far-reaching consequences. Will the new U.S. administration acquiesce to Russia’s strongman vision for the region, or push back against Russia’s growing influence there?

For months, the Kremlin has sought to draw Libya’s eastern potentate General Khalifa Hiftar into its orbit. Hiftar is currently the de facto leader of a bloc of eastern Libyan forces that oppose Libya’s internationally recognized government in Tripoli, the so called Government of National Accord. Negotiations between the two sides are going nowhere and rumors of a potential Hiftar offensive against the Tripoli government have been swirling for months.

You can read the rest @
http://fortune.com/2017/03/26/russia-us-donald-trump/

At first glance, it's just another Trump hit piece. Nowhere does it mention that none of this would have happened if the monster known as Hillary Clinton had not destroyed the government of Libya and enabled the murderers of Muammar Gaddafi.

But the REALLY important part of this report is the role of General Hiftar, a.k.a. General Hiƒter.

A man named "Hiƒter" is one of the three "Antichrists" predicted by Nostradamus. You can read about them here:

http://sainthoward.blogspot.com/2016/08/nostradamus-hiter-and-mabus.html

The fact that two prominent men with the last names of two of these Antichrists (Hiƒter and Mabus) are alive today should give pause to anyone contemplating what the US is doing in Africa and the Middle East.

On the other hand, the recent retirement of former US Secretary of the Navy Ray Mabus may have defused his prophetic potential. Only time will tell.

Pray hard, and do NOT take the mark:

But the day of the Lord will come as a thief in the night; in the which the heavens shall pass away with a great noise, and the elements shall melt with fervent heat, the earth also and the works that are therein shall be burned up.

Elon Musk Just Proved There Is A God

Elon Musk said the following during a conversation with Maureen Dowd:

"The phrase used is 'We are the biological bootloader for digital superintelligence.'" (A boot loader is the small program that launches the operating system when you first turn on your computer.) "Matter can’t organize itself into a chip," Musk explained. "But it can organize itself into a biological entity that gets increasingly sophisticated and ultimately can create the chip."

Source - http://www.vanityfair.com/news/2017/03/elon-musk-billion-dollar-crusade-to-stop-ai-space-x

Elon - No, matter cannot organize itself into a chip. But what you fail to realize is that the same physical principles which make that feat impossible also control "biological entities". That means life could NOT have just popped up out of nowhere; there HAD to have been a creator who was not bound or limited by those principles.

And that Creator is what we call G-d.

Will BRICS Replace SWIFT ???

If the Society for Worldwide Interbank Financial Telecommunication (SWIFT) is shut down in Russia, the country’s banking system will not crash, according to Central Bank Governor Elvira Nabiullina. Russia has a substitute.

"There were threats that we can be disconnected from SWIFT. We have finished working on our own payment system, and if something happens, all operations in SWIFT format will work inside the country. We have created an alternative," Nabiullina said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday.

She also added that 90 percent of ATMs in Russia are ready to accept the Mir payment system, a domestic version of Visa and MasterCard.

Izvestia daily reported that as of January 2016, 330 Russian banks had been connected to the SWIFT alternative, the system for transfer of financial messages (SPFS).

The BRICS countries are building an alternative to the financial system controlled by the US. Once it is functional and reliable, much of the world may convert to it. That is when the US shall fall, and our fall shall be great and perhaps permanent.

By the way, does this make Russia "evil"? I thought competition and change were "good" things, didn't you?

Experimenting On Us For Profit

The “21st Century Cures Act” - HR 34 - became law in December, 2016 and most people have no idea what it contains. Essentially, it redefines what is meant by informed consent. Or, put another way, it expands the ability for Big Pharma to experiment on the population under the assumption that the dangers of vaccines and pharmaceuticals are too minimal for serious consideration.

You may recall that the DoD got permission to force our troops to take four experimental drugs for the first Gulf War. The result, according to some observers, was Gulf War Syndrome.

You also may recall that some of the Nazis were punished for conducting human experimentation without consent during World War II.

Sometimes evil starts out small, and then grows and grows into something much bigger than anyone thought it could. Allowing this kind of "experimentation" fits that mold quite well.

Why Is Everyone Fascinated By Elon Musk ???

Here is a horrific essay from Maureen Dowd about Elon Musk's bizarre AI crusade:

Elon Musk is famous for his futuristic gambles, but Silicon Valley’s latest rush to embrace artificial intelligence scares him. And he thinks you should be frightened too. Inside his efforts to influence the rapidly advancing field and its proponents, and to save humanity from machine-learning overlords.

It's Time To Stop The War On Syria

Instead of making fools of themselves over ObamaDon'tCare and premature tax cuts, the US House of Representatives and Senate need to step up and either declare war on Syria or cut off the President's war making powers:

On the verge of driving the Islamic State out of Mosul, once Iraq’s second-largest city, the United States and its allies are beginning a push to recapture Raqqa, the Syrian city that is the de facto capital of the self-declared caliphate.

Hundreds of Syrian rebels and their American military advisers, backed by American artillery and attack helicopters, have started shutting down the western approaches to the city. There is talk of reinforcing the roughly 900 American troops who are now in the country. Instead of conducting airstrikes and relying on Syrian and Kurdish forces for ground operations, as they have done for months, the Americans are now involved with tanks and troops, a more direct and far riskier role.

But as the American military is doing its job, Congress is refusing to do its duty. Nearly three years into the war against ISIS, lawmakers have ducked their constitutional responsibility for making war by not passing legislation authorizing the anti-ISIS fight.

The latest technological revolution will make existing technology look like the Stone Age, yet few people outside of academia and industry are even aware of it. Many, if not most, of the people who are driving these technologies are Technocrats who intend to connect the world into a single global entity. Think, ‘hive mind’, ‘global city’ and 2030 Agenda.

The Spy Agency You Never Heard Of

While most Americans would consider the CIA, and perhaps the NSA, household names, one U.S. spy agency - whose headquarters surpasses the U.S. Capitol in size - has managed to keep to the shadows while possessing cutting edge tools of the surveillance trade.

Called the  National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA), even former President Barack Obama didn’t know of its existence when he first took office - despite that the agency employs some 15,400 people.

By the way, the suggestion in the article that President Trump will misuse this agency is misguided. Sure, he may spy on mosques, but why in G-d's name are we allowing the US government to spy on ANYONE? Just what good does it do for We The People?

None whatsoever. We're still getting attacked, and we're still poor, cold, and hungry.

Sanctuary In Austin ???

I live on the outskirts of Austin, TX, so this is a subject near and dear to my heart:

Senior Minister Meg Barnhouse knows she'll need beds, a dresser, chairs and a mirror to make the classroom at the First Unitarian Universalist Church of Austin feel more like a home for a mother and her young daughter who are still deciding whether they will become the latest immigrants seeking sanctuary from deportation by moving into a church.

It would be the second time Barnhouse's congregation had offered sanctuary. She was hesitant in 2015 because of the unknown legal and insurance risks, but this time she agreed immediately.

My personal belief is that anyone who asks a church for sanctuary should be granted it - ANYONE, regardless of any "crime" they may or may not have committed.

Why then does the MSM continually push the idea that deviant priests should be punished and murderers should not enjoy the privacy of the confessional while seemingly approving of giving sanctuary to immigrants?

I think the US has lost its way in regards to what churches are and what they stand for, especially Christian churches; and that is FORGIVENESS.

And it is the GUILTY who need forgiveness, not the innocent.

A Short History Of Walls

*Great Wall of China - FAIL (according to most historians)

*Hadrian's Wall - FAIL (Roman Empire collapsed)

*Berlin Wall - FAIL (East Germany collapsed)

*US Border Wall - FAIL (so far)

*Great Wall of Morocco - WORKS

*Great Wall of Israel - WORKS

The final two on the list were designed and/or built by Israel, while the others on the list were not. What is it about the Israeli walls that is different?

It may not be just the walls. Apparently Israeli security methods are so effective that everyone wants to adopt them. Here is a report dealing with that issue:

http://www.jpost.com/International/Is-British-security-up-to-Israeli-standards-for-preventing-London-style-terror-attacks-485098

It seems to me the biggest difference between Israel and everyone in the West is this:

(1) Israel identifies and assassinates or locks up anyone who even MIGHT be a threat to them, while

(2) The US, UK, Belgium, France, Germany, etc. let all the potential terrorists roam free - even when these governments know who they are.

ID them, keep them out, and/or deport them. That is the method Trump suggested during his campaign, but so far the powers that be are fighting him tooth and nail. Why?

One cannot have open borders, security, and freedom at the same time. You can only have two of the three. Take your pick.

The Climate Change Questions Not Being Asked

Here is one of the latest "climate change" warnings:

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/39957-release-of-arctic-methane-may-be-apocalyptic-study-warns

Q1: How did the methane hydrate get deposited in the first place?

Q2: If it was released during the last extinction period, how was it replenished?

Q3: Once the last extinction period was over, what were the mechanism(s) by which the methane was removed from the atmosphere and by which the earth cooled down?

A: Maybe instead of merely focusing on ways to "prevent" warming we should be finding how to REVERSE it. Obviously such mechanisms exist, because they worked in the past.

Here We Go Again

Now the GOP has a "health care" bill with unknown impact:

http://thehill.com/homenews/house/325581-gop-rushes-to-vote-without-knowing-full-impact-of-healthcare-plan

Nancy Pelosi's bill - you'll have to pass it to know what's in it.

Paul Ryan's bill - ditto.

We are SO screwed.

Fox News Hates The Truth

Fox News has pulled Judge Napolitano off the air for telling the truth about Obama ad-Dajjal's wiretapping of Trump:

https://www.yahoo.com/finance/news/fox-pulls-napolitano-air-trump-report-023807823--politics.html

That's a shame, since Napolitano was one of the few truth tellers still left on TV.

If you recall, CNN fired and disavowed Peter Arnett after his "Operation Tailwind" story about the US military using chemical weapons against US deserters in Vietnam:

http://www.wsws.org/en/articles/1999/04/cnn-a22.html

And the entire military-industrial-information complex disavowed Gary Webb after his "Dark Alliance" articles revealed the truth about the crack cocaine epidemic:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dark_Alliance

Face it - the MSM absolutely hates the truth. They only want you to hear what they're approved to tell you.

The US government and its minions break the law ALL THE TIME. They kill, steal, rape, plunder, spy, and torture, and that's just for starters. And the only people who go to jail are the patsies, the whistle blowers, and men like Trump who try to fight this evil.

Who We Really Are

In late February 2017, Norway hosted an international humanitarian conference on Nigeria and the Lake Chad region in hopes of attracting major donors to fund relief work.  As Norway’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Børge Brende explained, “The conference has three aims: to raise awareness about the crisis, to gain more support for humanitarian efforts, and to secure greater political commitment to improve the situation.”

Brende’s concern for the region may be laudable. But no serious examination of the crisis in West Africa can ignore the political and strategic calculus that surrounds the region. As with all conflicts in Africa, questions about resource extraction and neocolonial exploitation abound, with corrupt governments in the region (and their backers in wealthy countries) making the discussion all the more uncomfortable for the most privileged members of global society.


A real discussion of the issue would highlight the questionable connections between regional governments and the development of Boko Haram, the Nigerian terror group that is responsible for much of the havoc being wreaked in the region. It would note the vast energy deposits beneath Lake Chad that evoke an almost Pavlovian response from the leaders of surrounding countries, blinded by the dollar signs in their eyes. It would point out the moves that former colonial powers in Europe are making within the region to enrich themselves and expand their military presence, as well as increase their influence and political power.

Don't fool yourself. We are not "Christians". We are not "compassionate". We are not even "fair".

We are Wasichu, the fat takers. Our journey into Africa follows in the footsteps of Leopold II of Belgium - just as greedy, and almost as cruel.

China's Toilet Police

One of Beijing’s busiest public toilets is fighting the scourge of toilet paper theft through the use technology – giving out loo roll only to patrons who use a face scanner.

The automated facial recognition dispenser comes as a response to elderly residents removing large amounts of toilet paper for use at home.

Now, those in need of paper must stand in front of a high-definition camera for three seconds, after removing hats and glasses, before a 60cm ration is released.

Those who come too often will be denied, and everyone must wait nine minutes before they can use the machine again.

Jeez !!! If the elderly cannot even afford toilet paper, just how wonderful is the Chinese economy?

By the way, 60 cm is 2 feet. On a good day, assuming the paper was not too thin, I need at least twice that amount per visit. How petty can they get?

Many Canadians Don't Want Illegals Either

Nearly half of Canadians want to deport people who are illegally crossing into Canada from the United States, and a similar number disapprove of how Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is handling the influx, according to a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Monday.

I believe that most citizens want their countries to be secure, and border control is an important part of that equation.

Stupid Things The FBI Did

Woo Hoo !!! The FBI was successful in finding Tom Brady's jersey:

https://www.yahoo.com/sports/news/report-fbi-nfl-recover-tom-bradys-missing-super-bowl-jersey-130148110.html

But they could not find any criminality in what Hillary did while Secretary of State, in spite of mountains of evidence she was guilty as sin:

http://www.cnn.com/2016/11/06/politics/comey-tells-congress-fbi-has-not-changed-conclusions/

Why do we even have an FBI? From the perspective of We The People, they appear to serve no useful purpose.

Opening The Gates Of Hell In North Korea

Do we really want to antagonize North Korea until they nuke us? Apparently the answer is "yes":

http://www.dailystar.co.uk/news/latest-news/598029/North-Korea-Nuclear-Kim-Jong-un-US-Strike-Single-Bullet-South-Japan-Foal-Eagle-USS-Carl

Q: But why? The world has managed to keep the nuclear genie more or less contained since August 9, 1945.

A: It appears the US really wants to change that and re-introduce nuclear weapons on the battlefield. And since all the world now seems to be America's battlefield, that means everywhere. This is a VERY bad idea.

Can someone tell me EXACTLY what the North Koreans want? It's clear they want the US to leave them alone, but what specifically would it take to stop all this saber rattling and reunify the two Koreas?

Is this really more difficult than the East-West divide that eventually was healed in Europe? Or the North Vietnam - South Vietnam mess we helped the French create?

Is US Invading Costa Rica ???

The sad story of American greed repeats itself:

From the top of the great Talamaca mountain range in southern Costa Rica, you can see the Caribbean Sea and the houses of the Bribri and Cabécar Indigenous groups. According to their cosmology, their ancestors are in every tree, in every river and in every living being found in this reserve close to the border with Panama: The place is sacred. But to the Costa Rican government and the United States Southern Command, its value lies in its mineral deposits and oil.

Costa Rica hasn't had an official army for the last 68 years. However, in 2013, people in the Talamaca region were surprised by the arrival of a helicopter full of uniformed military personnel, whom they immediately identified as being part of the United States Southern Command. The military personnel were playing the role of missionaries, giving Bibles away. However, simultaneously, they were carrying out various military training activities in the area around Alto Cuen, a Bribri community.

"They said they were missionaries, but no one believed them," Bribri tribe member Leonardo Buitrago Morales told Truthout. "We knew they were looking for something more. The truth is that they want our lands and our forests to make money."

Giving away Bibles? Since when is that a military mission?

Everywhere America goes, we go because we covet something or someone. The best description of us was given by Tenskwatawa, the Shawnee prophet and brother of Tecumseh:

There are two kinds of white men. There are the Americans, and there are the others. You may give your hand in friendship to the French, or the Spaniards, or the British. But the Americans are not like those. The Americans come from the slime of the sea, with mud and weeds in their claws, and they are a kind of crayfish serpent whose claws grab in our earth and take it from us.

Costa Rica long has been on the list of earthly paradises. I'm surprised it took this long for the US to decide to occupy and strip mine it.

Primitives Are Healthier

Modern life really does kill after a remote tribe living deep in the Amazon were found to have the healthiest arteries ever studied.

A new study estimates that an 80-year-old from the Tsimane has the same vascular age as an American in their mid-fifties.

Heart rate, blood pressure , cholesterol, and blood glucose were also much lower, probably as a result of the tribe's lifestyle, according to the researchers.

The indigenous Tsimane people, who live in the Bolivian Amazon, have the lowest reported levels of vascular ageing for any population.

Hardening of the arteries, known as coronary atherosclerosis, which leads to coronary heart disease and angina is FIVE TIMES less common than in the US, according to the research published in The Lancet.

We all should move back to the rain forest or jungle. But instead we're destroying it and its inhabitants. What a shame.

US Government Spying

We face the gravest threat to personal liberty since the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798 proscribed criticism of the government.

We have an unelected, unnamed, unaccountable elite group in the intelligence community manipulating the president at will and possessing intimate, detailed knowledge about all of us that it can reveal.


We have statutes that have given the president unconstitutional powers that have apparently been used. And we have judges on secret courts facilitating all this as if the Constitution didn’t exist.


For how much longer will we have freedom?

We have freedom to worship Satan and urinate on the Bible, but not freedom from our own government.

I urge you to read Judge Napolitano's essay in full. It's an eye opener.

And please stop focusing on the "Trump" aspect of this - it affects ALL of us.

Yahoo - Rewarding Failure ???

For a look at the obscene, and absurd, amount of money given to the CEO of Yahoo, go here:

http://www.latimes.com/business/hiltzik/la-fi-hiltzik-mayer-severance-20170317-story.html

US corporate CEOs and their accomplices in Wall Street seem to be more interested in enriching themselves than in running their businesses wisely.

Is anyone worth that kind of money?

Fukushima - Worst Industrial Cataclysm in World History

Arnie Gundersen, former nuclear engineer, Mar 11, 2017: “The scientific impact of the triple meltdown at Fukushima Daiichi is an ongoing disaster that was never envisioned by the engineers who created and designed these atomic reactors and countries who built them ... no country in the world with nuclear power reactors was prepared for the explosive radioactive contamination of Fukushima Daiichi.”

Over and over, people ask me about what happened inside the plants and what is still happening inside with robots fried by radiation, corium that can’t be found, and massive amounts of radioactivity migrating to sensitive estuaries, aquifers, contaminating all the ground water, and polluting the Pacific Ocean ...

No one has discovered where the nuclear cores have disappeared to.

http://www.globalresearch.ca/fukushima-worst-industrial-cataclysm-in-history-of-world-nuclear-engineer-arnie-gundersen/5580249

The cores are no longer contained, and they will NEVER be contained again.

By the way, in a former life I was trained to be a Senior Reactor Operator of GE nuclear power plants. As far as I can tell, the operators at Fukushima did exactly what they were trained to do. And I agree with Gundersen - although it should have been clear that such an accident was possible, absolutely no one was prepared to handle such a thing. Nobody thought this through before, and they still haven't.

DO NOT EVER BUILD ANY MORE NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS !!!

What Is The Real Purpose Of The Internet Of Things ???

Israeli research studies presented at an international conference reveal that the same electromagnetic frequencies used for crowd control weapons form the foundation of the latest network – branded as 5G – that will tie together more than 50 billion devices as part of the Internet of Things. Current investigations of wireless frequencies in the millimeter and submillimeter range confirm that these waves interact directly with human skin, specifically the sweat glands. Dr. Ben-Ishai of the Department of Physics, Hebrew University, Israel recently detailed how human sweat ducts act like an array of helical antennas when exposed to these wavelengths. Scientists cautioned that before rolling out 5G technologies that use these frequencies, research on human health effects needed to be done first to ensure the public and environment are protected.

It would not surprise me to learn that the "Internet of things" is actually a giant sterilization device designed to remove the human infestation from this planet.

Can you prove otherwise?
