6 Essential Foundations Of A Great Garden

Herbs For Every Herb Garden


Twin Flame Soulmates

Humans are hard wired from birth to seek basic things for their survival; primarily food, freedom, shelter, comfort and safety. Beyond or perhaps beneath this also exists the need for communal living and family structure. We seek our place within societal realms which is tied to the survival instinct, and part of that instinct is to propagate the species. Even though those with hardened hearts may disagree, everyone wants to love and be loved. It’s one of those primal instincts we’re hardwired with from birth; you can deny it, but there’s no escaping it. Each individual incarnates with a matched set of longings. The first is to return to source, the second is to find the missing half of their soul~ their split-apart, their twin flame.

As the common legend goes, at the time of physical incarnation each sovereign soul is split apart into two, one male & one female, who then proceed along different paths, according to what they have chosen. We arrive here in this place with a hollow, half remembered longing to find something hovering out there just beyond the veil of memory ~ and it calls to us throughout our life to come find it. We almost never know what it is we seek, we only feel the emptiness; so we begin a life long process of trying to fill that void with one thing or another, trying to scratch an itch we can’t quite reach no matter what we try. This trial and error approach to fulfillment tends to waste a lot of valuable time while it gradually takes its toll on ones psyche and overall outlook on life. Almost nobody gets it right the first time, which is why reincarnation is so popular.



Our journey upon the wheel of life is one of completion and unity.


It is a stormy night sometime in the winter of 1694 off the poorly charted western shore of Australia.   The Dutch trading vessel Ridderschap Van Holland is foundering in the heavy swells.  She is the flagship of the Dutch trading fleet and had sailed from Cape of Good Hope on February 5th with 300 crew and two passengers; they never arrived and were presumed lost at sea.  Two years later the Dutch sailing Captain Willem de Vlamingh went searching for survivors with an expedition of three ships.  The mission was a failure as no survivors or clues were ever discovered.  On the return trip the expedition charted the western shores of Australia thereby improving navigation on the Indian ocean route to the Dutch east Indies.  On January 10th of 1697 de Vlamingh ventured up the swan river; they were the first Europeans to ever do so.  He named it Zwaanernenriver, which is Dutch for Swan River….after seeing huge numbers of Black Swans, which until that day were considered an impossibility since all swans are white.

Following this discovery the English coined the term “black swan” as a statement of impossibility flowing from the assumption that all swans are white.  The importance of the simile is it’s analogy to the fragility of any system of thought.  Any set of conclusions are potentially undone once any fundamental postulates are disproved.  The Black Swan Theory was developed by Nassim Nicholas Taleb in his 2004 book, Fooled by Randomness which was primarily concerned with the world of finance.  His next book in 2007 expanded the Black Swan Theory to encompass societal & political realities on Earth as well as the financial angle.

Identifying a Black Swan Event

Taleb’s general advice is to not so much try to predict black swan events as it is to prepare and brace yourself against negative outcome events.  Taleb saw the black swan as something different, and set aside form the ordinary unexpected events which occur across our world with ever increasing frequency.  The black swan is in fact; a set of circumstances which must all be present for it to be considered a true black swan event.  Taleb lists three conditions that identify a true black swan event. [BSE]

1. The event is a complete surprise, taking everyone off guard,such as the sudden failure of Lehman Brothers, or the disaster at Fukushima.

2. The event has a major impact on the world.

3.  After the event, it is rationalized by hindsight as if it could have been expected.

Taleb says that all banks and trading firms are extremely vulnerable to black swan events and are exposed to losses far beyond the normal, expected range.  When dealing with this subject we must also take into consideration Counterfactual Thinking which is the tendency people have to imagine alternatives to reality.  Humans are predisposed to think about what might have been.  This is why, as a counselor, I would always tell my clients to never finish a thought beginning with the words “what if” or “if only“- because those thoughts seldom produce a positive constructive resonance, and tend to be a waste of your time.  It is an altogether different thing to do such musing before, rather than after some important event in your life.





Mr Ruppert, 63, has recently moved to the Rocky Mountains, a friend said in a Facebook announcement about his death

Tribute to Michael Ruppert

Michael Ruppert was one of two gentlemen who turned my life around as to revealing to me the dark reality of our government after 9/11. His classic “Crossing the Rubicon” detailed how, why and who was behind 9/11. He even foretold the 9/11 event (but so did Able Danger, the Presidential Press Briefings, the FBI, etc…).  His was also the only investigative reporter to “follow the money” and report on the massive put options bet just days before 9/11 on United Airlines, American Airlines and Swiss RE..which was confirmed by in the official conspiracy theory, the 9/11 Commission Report.

Sadly, as we go down the Decline of the American Empire, the most common to take their own lives are the 45-55 year old males, as chronicled in Dimitry Orlov’s “5 Stages of Collapse” where he witnessed the great fall of the Russian Empire in the 1990’s.  (Source)


After leaving the LAPD, Mr Ruppert started a  website From The Wilderness which claimed to expose government corruption. It included his claims that he had seen drug-dealing at the CIA.

Mr Ruppert gained notoriety by confronting then-CIA Director John Deutch during a meeting in 1995 and telling him that he had seen CIA officers involved in drug-dealing. He later claimed on his website that the CIA and American government was involved in 9/11.

In 2004, he published Crossing the Rubicon: The Decline of the American Empire at the End of the Age of Oil. The book alleged than former VP Dick Cheney had conspired with Wall Street and other government officials over the September 11 World Trade Center attacks.

In 2009, he starred in a documentary called Collapse where he spoke about his theories involving the demise of mankind following the economic and energy crises. 


Not a Bug Splat: Artists Confront U.S. Drone Operators with Giant Picture of Pakistani Child..Coming to the U.S.???

In an act of protest against drone attacks, a group of artists and villagers have unveiled a giant banner on a Pakistani field featuring the face of a young child. Organizers say the child lost her parents and two young siblings in a U.S. drone strike. Her picture is large enough to be picked up by satellite imagery. The “Not a Bug Splat” campaign is the work of Pakistanis, Americans and the French street artist JR. The project derives its name from a piece of military software that generates computer models of the destruction a bombing raid might cause — those models reportedly resemble the remains of a squashed insect on a windshield. Now, drone operators will see the face of the little girl staring up at them instead. We speak with Dr. Akash Goel, a physician who is one of the co-creators of the “Not a Bug Splat” project.

A New Civil Rights Movement Frees Our Communities from Corporate Control

To protect small and family farms from industrial factory farming, over a decade ago a handful of Pennsylvania townships stood up to some of the country’s largest agribusiness corporations. Recognizing that the state and federal government, rather than protecting them from factory farms, were in fact forcing them into communities, the townships took the unprecedented step of banning corporate farming within their borders.

Thus began the journey to spark a new civil rights movement – one aimed at elevating the right of communities over the ‘rights’ of corporations to use communities for their own ends.

In a departure from the usual David and Goliath story, with one tiny community battling a giant corporation, today there are over 150 “Davids” in eight states that have followed the lead of those Pennsylvania townships. Community by community, they’ve banned corporate “fracking” for shale gas, factory farming, sludge dumping, large-scale water withdrawals, and industrial-scale energy projects.

However, they’re not intent on simply stopping the immediate threat of fracking or factory farming. Rather, they’re adopting Community Bills of Rights that ban such projects as violations of the community’s right to a sustainable energy and farming future. And to protect those Bills of Rights, they are legislatively overturning a slew of corporate legal doctrines – like corporate ‘personhood’ – that have been concocted over the past century to keep communities from interfering with corporate prerogatives.

These communities believe that if ten thousand other localities do the same, that those tremors will begin to shake loose a new system of law – a system in which courts and legislatures begin to elevate community rights above corporate rights, and thus, begin to liberate cities and towns to build economically and environmentally sustainable communities free from corporate interference.

Last week, a Pennsylvania county court gave this new movement a boost – declaring that corporations are not ‘persons’ under the Pennsylvania Constitution, and therefore, that corporations cannot elevate their ‘private rights’ above the rights of people.

The ruling was delivered in a case brought by several Western Pennsylvania newspapers which sought the release of a sealed settlement agreement between a family claiming to be affected by water contamination from gas fracking, and Range Resources – one of the largest gas extraction corporations in the state. Range Resources argued that unsealing the settlement agreement would violate the corporation’s constitutional right to privacy under the Pennsylvania Constitution.

In a landmark ruling, President Judge Debbie O’Dell-Seneca of the Washington County Court of Common Pleas denied the corporation’s request on the basis that the Pennsylvania Constitution only protects the rights of people, not business entities.
Judge O’Dell-Seneca cited that Article I of the state Constitution, which reads, “All men are born equally free and independent,” cannot apply to them.

“There are no men or women defendants in the instant case; they are various business entities. … These are all legal fictions, existing not by natural birth but by operations of state statutes. … Such business entities cannot have been ‘born equally free and independent,’ because they were not born at all.”

The court records unsealed by the ruling reveal that the gas extraction corporations paid out $750,000 to settle claims of water contamination caused by fracking. The ruling is significant because the fracking companies have relied on secrecy agreements with landowners to hide the environmental and health impacts of gas drilling.

The ruling represents the first crack in the judicial armor that has been so meticulously welded together by major corporations

Mendocino County: Charting a new course for water protection?

Swooping down for a bird’s eye view: Residents in Mendocino County area gearing up to answer that question in a way that may spark a new statewide conversation.  Mendocino County is located on the north coast of California, and means many things to the folks who live and visit: it sits on land of 9 Native American tribes and is in the heart of wine country; farms and ranches spread throughout its nearly 4,000 square miles producing huge quantities of food for the state and nation; the mountains are alive with fern groves and giant Redwoods (and yes there’s that other seven-leaf culture there as well).

But troubling this idyllic land of grace and plenty is the perfect storm of water emergencies

American Health Care; Most Expensive in the World; Patient Treatment/Care ranks #24.

Americans pay higher prices for many prescription drugs and medical treatments than citizens of other nations, a new report shows.

As anyone who’s ever paid a health insurance premium or a hospital bill knows, medical care is expensive. What Americans may not know is that residents of other countries don’t pay nearly as much for the same things.

The latest data from the International Federation of Health Plans, an industry group representing health insurers from 28 countries including the United States, once again illustrates that American patients pay the highest prices in the world for a variety of prescription drugs and common procedures like childbirth and hospital stays.

And despite the persistent claims by nearly anyone holding or seeking public office in the U.S. that America has the best health care system in the world, there’s scant evidence that we’re getting higher-quality medical treatment or enjoying healthier lives than our counterparts abroad. What’s more, the U.S. still leaves tens of millions of its own citizens without health coverage, and will continue to do so even a decade into the implementation of Obamacare.

To illustrate just how much more Americans pay for health care, the International Federation of Health Plans compared the prices for common medicines and services around the world in a report released on Thursday.

C.E.O. Pay Goes Up, Up and Away!

On Sunday, The New York Times published its annual list of the compensation of the top executives at the 100 largest publicly traded American companies. (The survey is conducted by Equilar for The Times.) Topping the list, as he often has, was Larry Ellison, the chief executive of Oracle, who, despite being the world’s fifth-wealthiest person, raked in an additional $78.4 million in 2013, a combination of cash, stock and stock options. That was more than twice as much as the second and third place finishers, Robert Iger of Disney and Rupert Murdoch of 21st Century Fox. Not that they had anything to complain about, at $34.3 million and $26.1 million respectively.

The Times reported that the median compensation for C.E.O.’s in 2013 was $13.9 million, a 9 percent increase from 2012. The Wall Street Journal, which did its own, smaller survey a few weeks earlier, described the 2013 pay increases as representing “moderate growth.”

White House Confirms CIA Director Visited Ukraine

White House officials has confirmed that the director of the Central Intelligence Agency visited Ukraine over the weekend, following reports in the Russian media. On Sunday, Moscow urged Washington to respond to allegations in the Russian press that CIA Director John Brennan had made an incognito visit to Ukrainian capital Kiev.

The reports alleged that Brennan, who assumed the directorship of the CIA a year ago, traveled to Ukraine on official business under a false identity in order to avoid attention. Russian media further alleged that the CIA head met with a host of Ukrainian intelligence and security officials and advised them on how to respond to the ongoing crisis in eastern Ukraine.

Initially, Washington denied comment on the allegations. But early on Monday White House Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters that Brennan had indeed traveled to Ukraine over the weekend. He said that the White House normally declines comment on the whereabouts of the CIA Director. However, “given the extraordinary circumstances” in the case of Ukraine, he said he was willing to confirm that Brennan was in Kiev over the weekend “as part of a trip to Europe”.

NATO Announces It Will Deploy on Russia’s Border

Thursday 17th April 2014 at 07:29 By David Icke

‘NATO boss Anders Fogh Rasmussen has announced military alliance will move troops up to the Russian border in response to resistance by eastern Ukrainians to an operation by the coup government to shut down a secession movement in Donetsk, Slaviansk and other areas of the country.

The move by NATO arrives as the parliament in Transnistria on the Moldova-Ukraine border unanimously adopted a resolution calling for the international community to recognize it as a sovereign independent state. “According to the universally recognized norms of international law, a right of people to self-determination should be the basis of political decisions. Every state should respect this right,” said deputy speaker Sergei Cheban.

A 2006 referendum held in the region that broke away from Romanian-speaking Moldova after the collapse of the Soviet Union showed 97 percent of residents were in favor of independence. The referendum also indicated the majority is interested in joining the Russian Federation.’

Humiliation for Ukraine’s troops as they roll into restive east in armoured vehicles … and have them SEIZED by pro-Russian militants

‘Ukraine’s offensive against separatists in the east of the country got off to a disastrous start today, with Kiev admitting its armoured vehicles had been seized by pro-Russian militants.

A column of armoured personnel carriers arrived in the rebel-held city of Slavyansk flying Russian flags, carrying men claiming to be Ukrainian soldiers who had switched allegiance.

The defence ministry in Kiev this afternoon then confirmed that vehicles had been captured in the flashpoint area of Kramatorsk.

‘A column was blocked by a crowd of local people in Kramatorsk with members of a Russian diversionary-terrorist group among them,’ it said. ‘As a result, extremists seized the equipment.”

In Ukraine, nuclear emissions could exceed both Chernobyl and Fukushima. Wartime conditions would prevent emergency crews from getting to an affected plant to contain radiological releases should reactor containments fail. And, with government services shut down in the midst of fighting, civilians attempting to escape radioactive contamination would not know what to do or where to go to protect themselves.

Such risks might be one reason for Russian President Vladimir Putin to think twice about ordering a military invasion of Ukraine. But, should war come, combatants must do all they can to keep conflict away from the nuclear sites and the off-site power sources feeding them.

U.S. AFRICOM Goes to War on the Sly

‘What the military will say to a reporter and what is said behind closed doors are two very different things — especially when it comes to the U.S. military in Africa. For years, U.S. Africa Command (AFRICOM) has maintained a veil of secrecy about much of the command’s activities and mission locations, consistently downplaying the size, scale, and scope of its efforts. At a recent Pentagon press conference, AFRICOM Commander General David Rodriguez adhered to the typical mantra, assuring the assembled reporters that the United States “has little forward presence” on that continent. Just days earlier, however, the men building the Pentagon’s presence there were telling a very different story — but they weren’t speaking with the media. They were speaking to representatives of some of the biggest military engineering firms on the planet. They were planning for the future and the talk was of war.

I recently experienced this phenomenon myself during a media roundtable with Lieutenant General Thomas Bostick, commander of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. When I asked the general to tell me just what his people were building for U.S. forces in Africa, he paused and said in a low voice to the man next to him, “Can you help me out with that?” Lloyd Caldwell, the Corps’s director of military programs, whispered back, “Some of that would be close hold” — in other words, information too sensitive to reveal.’

Everyone is a Criminal in the eyes of the Federal Government each and every day


The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why? The answer lies in the very nature of modern federal criminal laws, which have exploded in number but also become impossibly broad and vague. In Three Felonies a Day, Harvey A. Silverglate reveals how federal criminal laws have become dangerously disconnected from the English common law tradition and how prosecutors can pin arguable federal crimes on any one of us, for even the most seemingly innocuous behavior. The volume of federal crimes in recent decades has increased well beyond the statute books and into the morass of the Code of Federal Regulations, handing federal prosecutors an additional trove of vague and exceedingly complex and technical prohibitions to stick on their hapless targets. The dangers spelled out in Three Felonies a Day do not apply solely to “white collar criminals,” state and local politicians, and professionals. No social class or profession is safe from this troubling form of social control by the executive branch, and nothing less than the integrity of our constitutional democracy hangs in the balance.


North Dakota struggling to deal with radioactive fracking waste

‘Environmental regulators and North Dakota state officials have expressed concern that the state has failed to adequately adjust to the state’s sudden influx of crude oil output, a worry highlighted by the recent discovery of abandoned radioactive waste.

Last month, the North Dakota Health Department announced that a large pile of oil filter socks –radioactive nets that are used to strain liquid during the oil production process – had been found at an old gas station in Noonan, a small town in the northwestern region of the state.

The bags were covered in dust – an indication they had been there for some time – and dumped illegally at the mechanics station owned by a fugitive named Ken Ward, who reportedly worked in North Dakota’s fledgling gas and oil industry.’

SPLC Fostering More Hate in Bundy Ranch Article

Anthony Freda Art

Although tyranny, because it needs no consent, may successfully rule over foreign peoples, it can stay in power only if destroys first of all the national institution of its own people. – Hannah Arendt

The mass murder committed by the regimes of Stalin, Mao, Hitler and many others was made possible not just by the willingness of the “enforcers” to carry out their orders, but also by their victims’ imagined obligation to obey “authority,” and by the belief held by almost all onlookers that they should not interfere with the “the law”  being carried out. – Larkin Rose, The Most Dangerous Superstition

The Southern Poverty Law Center recently wrote an article published in their “Hatewatch” blog entitled “Antigovernment ‘Patriots’ Gather Near Scene of Nevada Rancher’s Dispute Over Cattle Grazing Rights “. The article is characteristic of this organization which makes a living by agitating situations with disinformation – attempting to foster hate for profit.

In the article, the SPLC attempts to associate Cliven Bundy, his family and supporters with anti-government freeloaders ‘illegally’ grazing cattle on government property. Instead of analyzing the information from the perspective of objectivity, the SPLC immediately begins with factually false agenda positioning accusations– identifying the article as a polarizing hit-piece against Americans supporting the Constitution, Common Law Property Rights and States Rights.
