Title : FRANCE WILL RENEGE ON RUSSIAN CONTRACT, SAYS PRES. FRANCOIS HOLLANDE

Written By : ERIC ZUESSE

For : Infowars.com

Date: 26 November 2014

Excerpt: ”On November 25th, French President Francois Hollande announced that France, which has already missed two deadlines to deliver to Russia two completed Mistral helicopter-carriers to Russia, won’t deliver either ship until Washington has no further complaints about Russia’s support of breakaway rebels in Ukraine’s southeast. Russia had already paid for both of these ships in full. Only the delivery is at issue here.  The Russian Government says that if the matter extends beyond a third deadline at the end of this month, and the first ship is still not delivered, then Russia will activate the non-delivery penalty for that ship, which, according to the BBC, would be around a billion dollars.  Hollande has been under terrific pressure from President Obama to renege on the contract, but French shipyard workers and others have held public demonstrations for France to honor the contract, because of the extensive harm to French shipbuilding and other industry that would result from France’s reneging on an international contract: it would hurt all of French industry if the French Government were to prohibit contract-fulfillment over political differences.”

Dollar Collapse

Title : Dollar To Crash And Be Replaced With New, Interest Free, Gold-Backed Currency

Written By : Gregg Prescott, M.S. 

For : in5D

Date: 05 November 2014

Excerpt: ”In the United States, those citizens and local governments that understand that the banking cartel has done something called “state capture” to which Hudes says, “They managed to bribe and corrupt enough officials, that these officials would just, instead of doing their public duty, would serve the interests of the banking cartel.”    In the United States, Hudes has been working with “The County Executives of America” and stated that they “have accepted the share of the United States gold in this ‘Global Debt Facility’ on behalf of the citizens of the United States and we are now trying to replace the paper currencies that are issued by the Federal Reserve.”  Hudes added that the new currency should be issued by the Treasury, not the Fed, and stated there will not be any interest (debt) on the new currency. In other words, charging interest will no longer be tolerated in ANY country once these funds are released.  “When Ferdinand Marcos put the gold in the Global Debt Facility, he arranged for institutions that would be there to ensure that the gold would benefit humanity when it came out and one of those institutions is the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund.”

Title : Subconscious Manipulators: Take Your Life Off Autopilot

Written By : Nick Parkins

For : Waking Times

Date: 29 October 2014

Excerpt: ”Laws operate as a strong arm of social conditioning, in so much as they slowly undermine the ability of the individual to assess situations and make judgements based on past experiences. Laws make us passive; we look out to authority for answers rather than to ourselves within. The danger is we become easily manipulated and no longer able to question authority; not only because we have been conditioned to, but because we are being slowly stripped of the tools and acuity with which to do so.”

Date: 22 October 2014

Excerpt: ”The central bank stepped in to rescue the lender in August after African Bank forecast a record loss and announced the resignation of chief executive Leon Kirkinis.  It was was placed under curatorship after the so-called bad bank with soured loans was broken off from a good bank, which continues to do business.  “Our expectation is that the new African Bank will re-list on the stock exchange early next year and that the curatorship will be concluded without the use of taxpayer money,” Nene said in a printed copy of his budget speech.”

Title : Washington concealed US troops exposure to chemical weapons in Iraq

Written By : RT News

For : RT News

Date: 15 October 2014

Excerpt: ”American soldiers discovered more than 4,990 chemical munitions in Iraq, according to Iraqi and US officials and previously classified intelligence documents, which may now be in the hands of Islamic State militants.  For much of the duration of the Iraq War, which saw US soldiers open a military invasion against the Ba’athist country in March 2003 amid tremendous international outcry, US forces “repeatedly encountered, and on six occasions were wounded by, chemical weapons” leftover from the Iraq-Iran War, reported the New York Times. The hefty eight-part report, largely based on interviews and highly redacted intelligence documents, said “17 American service members and seven Iraqi police officers…were exposed to nerve or mustard agents” between 2004 and 2011”

Date : 13 October 2014

Excerpt: ”Businesses and governments around the world increasingly are turning to voice biometrics, or voiceprints, to pay pensions, collect taxes, track criminals and replace passwords.  “We sometimes call it the invisible biometric,” said Mike Goldgof, an executive at Madrid-based AGNITiO, one of about 10 leading companies in the field.  Those companies have helped enter more than 65 million voiceprints into corporate and government databases, according to Associated Press interviews with dozens of industry representatives and records requests in the United States, Europe and elsewhere.”

Title : Suspicions Run Deep in Iraq That CIA and the Islamic State Are United

Written By : David D. Kirkpatrick

For : NDTV

Date : 21 September 2014

Excerpt: ”The United States has conducted an escalating campaign of deadly airstrikes against the extremists of the Islamic State for more than a month. But that appears to have done little to tamp down the conspiracy theories still circulating from the streets of Baghdad to the highest levels of Iraqi government that the CIA is secretly behind the same extremists that it is now attacking.  “We know about who made Daesh,” said Bahaa al-Araji, a deputy prime minister, using an Arabic shorthand for the Islamic State, on Saturday at a demonstration called by the Shiite cleric Muqtada al-Sadr to warn against the possible deployment of U.S. ground troops.  Sadr publicly blamed the CIA for creating the Islamic State in a speech last week, and interviews suggested that most of the few thousand people at the demonstration, including dozens of members of parliament, subscribed to the same theory. (Sadr is considered close to Iran, and the theory is popular there as well.)”

Title : Obama insists ground troops will not join ISIS fight, US military less sure

Written By : RT Report

For : RT News

Date : 18 September 2014

Excerpt: ”US President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry continue to insist that American ground troops will not be involved in the fight against Islamic State militants – a pledge that has been called into question by US Army generals.  The debate over the use of ground troops comes as the House of Representatives voted to authorize the arming and training of Syrian rebels. The move is said to be aimed at fighting Islamic State extremists in the country.  Speaking to American service members on Wednesday, President Obama once again stated he will not authorize the use of ground forces in Iraq, and that even those already in the country will not have combat responsibilities.”

Title : The Era Of Widespread Biometric Indentification And Microchip Implants Is Here

Written By : Michael Snyder

For : The Economic Collapse

Date : 09 September 2014

Excerpt: ”Are you ready to have your veins scanned every time you use your bank account?  Are you ready to use a “digital tattoo” or a microchip implant to unlock your telephone?  Once upon a time we read about such technologies in science fiction novels, but now they are here.  The era of widespread biometric identification and microchip implants is upon us, and it is going to change the way that we live.  Proponents of these new technologies say that they will make our private information and our bank accounts much more secure.  But there are others that warn that these kinds of “Big Brother technologies” will set the stage for even more government intrusion into our lives.  In the wrong hands, such technologies could prove to be an absolute nightmare.”

Date: 12th August 2014

Excerpt: ”For the past two days, Steve King has been “unbelievably busy” at his gun store, Metro Shooting at 11434 St. Charles Rock Road. King said business spiked 50 percent as local residents respond to the violent events taking place in Ferguson. “We’ve sold a variety of handguns, shotguns and AR-15s (a semi-automatic rifle),” King said. “All of the sales are having to do with home defense.”

Title : Scientist Working on Gov’t Ebola Drug Joked About Culling Population with GMO Virus

Written By : Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton 

For : Truthstream Meida

Date: 5th August 2014

Excerpt: ”Media coverage is now focusing on the experimental Ebola treatments being given to two American Ebola patients who contracted it while caring for victims in Africa — the site of the world’s deadliest outbreak.  But that Ebola treatment was developed by a leading bioengineering scientist from the University of Arizona who was caught on camera “joking” about wiping out humanity. Dr. Charles Arntzen suggested the use of a “better” genetically engineered virus during a post-lecture Q&A focused on over-population issues, citing the 2011 Hollywood film ‘Contagion’.’’

Justice

Title : Perspective on Tough Justice’s Inability To End Violence

Written By : Antony Sammeroff 

For : Waking Times

Date: 4th August 2014

Excerpt: ”The reason why people continue to believe in “tough justice”, even though all the data shows it is a wrong-minded approach to deterring violence, may very well be because they were treated punitively as children. Having been exposed to punishments, spanking, and “strict-discipline”, and told it was “for our own good”, may have shaped our apprehension of the world through the lens of “an eye for an eye”. Moreover, looking at the situation clearly for what it is would also entail having to reassess our own childhood for trauma and wounds inflicted upon us, advertently or inadvertently, by our own caregivers. This can obviously be a very painful process for most people.”

Title : British Supermarket to Power Itself Solely With Food Waste

Written By : Brandon Baker

For : Eco Watch

Date: 23rd July 2014

Excerpt: It’s good to refrain from wasting energy, but it’s even better to procure energy from items that you otherwise would waste. That’s the thinking behind the latest announcement from Sainsbury’s, the second largest chain of supermarkets in the United Kingdom. The chain’s Cannock location will soon be powered solely by the company’s own food waste. Waste management and recycling firm Biffa has partnered with the store to use its advanced anaerobic digestion (AD) facilities and a power link that allows the Cannock store to use the waste generated from Sainsbury’s other locations.

Title : The Head Of ‘The Central Bank Of The World’ Warns That Another Great Financial Crisis May Be Coming

Written By : Michael Snyder

For : The Economic Collapse

Date: 13th July 2014

Excerpt: ”The world economy is just as vulnerable to a financial crisis as it was in 2007, with the added danger that debt ratios are now far higher and emerging markets have been drawn into the fire as well, the Bank for International Settlements has warned.  Jaime Caruana, head of the Swiss-based financial watchdog, said investors were ignoring the risk of monetary tightening in their voracious hunt for yield.  “Markets seem to be considering only a very narrow spectrum of potential outcomes. They have become convinced that monetary conditions will remain easy for a very long time, and may be taking more assurance than central banks wish to give,” he told The Telegraph.”

Date: 7th July 2014

Excerpt: ”And even in some hospital of the future, if you had AI androids “making all the surgical decisions,” they wouldn’t actually be choosing anything. They’d be programmed by humans.  Why is this so hard for technocrats to understand? Because they infuse themselves with a mystical vision about artificial intelligence.  They confuse operational capability with consciousness.  Machines “viewing” humans? There is no viewing.  Machines don’t think. They never have, and they never will. They perform according to specs.”

Title : The Power of Intention

Written By : Brandon West

For : Daily Spiral

Date: 25th June 2014

Excerpt: ”I deeply resonate with Don Juan’s other description of what it means to use intention and to actually intend something, which helped me to greatly clear up my understanding of using this force which we connect to. In essence he described intending something as: silently willing something into being. Not thinking something into being, but silently willing something into being which is a specific energetic state. It is a state not characterized primarily by thought, but by a powerful feeling and a state of being where from your inner silence radiates a powerful knowing and energetic connection or bond with this future reality you are focusing on.”

Title : North American Teachers are Revolting Against Standardized Testing

Written By : Jeff Abbott

For : Waking Times

Date: 24th June 2014

Excerpt: ”This year’s resistance to standardized testing has rejuvenated teachers’ unions and built bridges between the classroom and the broader community that have eluded the educators and labor for decades. This emerging refusal to administer tests has also created bridges between teachers across international borders — a response, in large part, to the globalization of standardized testing and private testing companies.”

Title : The scandal of fiddled global warming data

Written By : Christopher Booker

For : The Telegraph

Date: 21st June 2014

Excerpt: ”When future generations try to understand how the world got carried away around the end of the 20th century by the panic over global warming, few things will amaze them more than the part played in stoking up the scare by the fiddling of official temperature data. There was already much evidence of this seven years ago, when I was writing my history of the scare, The Real Global Warming Disaster. But now another damning example has been uncovered by Steven Goddard’s US blog Real Science, showing how shamelessly manipulated has been one of the world’s most influential climate records, the graph of US surface temperature records published by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).”

Excerpt:”Picture this: millionaires and billionaires gathering under tight security in fancy hotels with powerful politicians and operatives to plot how their network of secret-money groups can engineer a permanent realignment of American politics. Only, it’s not the Koch brothers. It’s the liberal Democracy Alliance. The 21 groups at the core of the Democracy Alliance’s portfolio intend to spend $374 million during the midterm election cycle — including nearly $200 million this year — to boost liberal candidates and causes in 2014 and beyond, according to internal documents obtained by POLITICO. While growing sums of that cash are being spent vilifying the billionaire conservative industrialists Charles and David Koch over their own network’s political spending, the documents reveal the extent to which the Democracy Alliance network mirrors the Kochs’ — and is obsessed with it.”

Title : Hundreds of girls with skirts ‘too short’ sent home to prepare them for ‘world of work’

Written By : James Edgar

For : The Telegraph

Date: 18th June 2014

Excerpt: ”More than 250 girls were taken out of lessons at a secondary school because their skirts were too short and the headmaster wants to prepare them for the “world of work”. Teachers at Ryde Academy on the Isle of Wight either sent home the girls, aged between 11 and 18, or took them out of their classrooms to be placed in an isolated hall. Others were sent home to change because their trousers were “too tight” and did not fit with the school’s strict new policy. Boys at the academy were turned away if they arrived at lessons without leather shoes. The measures come just five weeks before the end of the school year and parents vented their anger towards the school.”

Title : Enlightenment, Ascension and The Illusion of Matter

Written By : Free Spirit

For : Waking Times

Date: 15th June 2014

Excerpt: ”No matter how real the world of matter seems – deeper inquiry will show that it does not exist outside of the five senses or our own Awareness. The sensory channels experience the apparent outer world through sensations and these sensations are then relayed to – and interpreted by – the mind. Whatever is seen, tasted, touched, heard or smelled is thus experienced by the mind and within our own Awareness. The mind projects thoughts externally (including all sensory mechanisms), sees what it projects and mistakenly believes the world of forms preceded the mind. This projection is the root cause of entrapment in Maya (illusion).”

Excerpt: ”In most offices a raft of mainly pointless, cumbersome tools are used to assess performance, including “competency matrices”, appraisal interviews and psychometric testing. Together they are so ineffective that according to a delightful piece of research by the University of Catania, companies would be no worse off if they promoted people at random.  So if we are in favour of meritocracies, we should also be in favour of anything that helps us measure merit more accurately.”

Excerpt:  “When people say that it’s ‘only fair’ for a father and mother to share their five-year-old daughter on alternate weeks, they mean it is fair to the adults – who see her as a possession and her presence as their right – not that it is fair to the child.” Ms Leach said when lawyers bid for their client to have overnight access with their young children they are ignoring evidence about the distressing and damaging impact on the child. Leach said the rights of the child must always outweigh those of the parents and added: “It can be damaging to the child to divide time equally between the parents.”

Title : Gender equality is not a Western notion

Written By : Godess Bvukutwa 

For : This Is Africa

Date: 11th June 2014

Excerpt: ”Like any other establishment, the systems and structures of patriarchy have worked for centuries for a particular group of society – men – which has benefitted immensely from having privileged positions since time immemorial. Men in most sub-Saharan African cultures, are born elevated already in the societal hierarchy. Not only does society value men and boy children, society also finds ways of blaming the woman if she bears only female children like this writer’s mother had done. This writer comes from a family of five girls and one little boy, the last born, and of the five girls one is of another mother, yet in this blatant infidelity my father was still cushioned by society with the excuse that he was looking for a male child out of wedlock. So somehow this was acceptable because one is to have a male child at all expense.”

Written By : Fiona Lloyd Davies 

For : Independent Voices

Date: 9th June 2014

Excerpt: ”In 2001, at the height of what’s called Africa’s First World War, flying by small aircraft was the only way to get to a town deep in the forest. There, the women told me how they had to choose between staying at home and starving, or risk being raped when they went out to look for food. Of course they didn’t have a choice at all – they had to go out to feed their children, and so were raped in the fields and on the roads, not just when a village was attacked. But terrifyingly, women tell me that it’s now much worse. They say if you’re female rape has become an expectation.  It’s so common place that they expect this act of brutality not just once, but three, possibly four times. And their daughters, often born from a previous rape, may be raped too. There is no discrimination of age, from 6 month-old babies to elderly women. Nor gender – increasingly men are being raped too.”

Excerpt: ”It occurred to me that World War II was so long ago that few are alive who remember it, and by now even these few probably remember the propaganda version that they have heard at every Memorial Day and July 4th occasion since 1945. Little wonder that neither Obama nor Cameron or their pitiful speech writers knew nothing about the war that they were commemorating.  Propaganda has always been with us. The difference is that in the 21st century Americans have nothing but propaganda. Nothing else at all. Just lies. Lies are the American experience. The actual world as it exists is foreign to most Americans.”

Date: 9th June 2014

Excerpt: “It appears there’s an attempt to marginalize people who hold views that are sharply different from those of the administration and much of the establishment, said Horace Cooper, co-chairman of the Project 21 National Advisory Board. Project 21 is a network of black conservatives.  Cooper said plenty of presidents dealt with critical speech, particularly in opposition to the Vietnam War and even the Iraq War. He said no president ever responded like this.  “We didn’t arrest them (due to their speech). We didn’t try to prevent them from being able to express themselves on campuses, and we didn’t try to prevent them from trying to enter into the public square,” he said. “This administration appears not to appreciate that lesson and says that the groups of people that are not within their particular perspective ought to be considered the very threat … that the real terrorist threat that comes internationally [presents].”

Excerpt: ”First, by the time the  Reserve bank declares the start of a recession and you read about it in the newspapers, the worst is probably over. This is because the SARB, like other reserve banks around the world, wait many months for “data to settle” before committing to an admission the country has entered recession. They typically wait to see that all sectors of the economy have experienced contraction and this can take some time as many sectors contract at varying times during the course of a recession depending where they are on the supply chain.”

Date: 25th May 2014

Excerpt: As Rodger bemoaned his life of “loneliness, rejection and unfulfilled desire” and arrogantly announced that he would now prove his own status as “the true alpha male,” he unwittingly expressed the toxic double helix of insecurity and entitlement that comprises Hollywood’s DNA. For generations, mass entertainment has been overwhelmingly controlled by white men, whose escapist fantasies so often revolve around vigilantism and sexual wish-fulfillment (often, if not always, featuring a steady through-line of casual misogyny)”.

Written By : Michelle Walling

Date: 25th May 2014

Excerpt :

”After a round of sex, the emotional body is triggered which is the body’s natural way of bringing up energies that need to be cleared. Therefore, sexual energy is a key tool in balancing the emotional body, which is important in keeping the body clear of lower vibrational energy. Mastery of the emotional body through sexual energy allows for a more healthy and happy body. Sex is also valuable in the aspect of loving yourself, which is an important part of raising your vibration. Hidden beliefs about love and your body can be transmuted through the loving act of sex with the right partner.”
