This is the time of the year when we shine a light on the friendships in our life as well as social causes, humanitarian endeavors, and our place in the family of man. Aquarius is the visionary of the zodiac as well as the archetype of the genius, intellectual, and scientist.
With Saturn in Scorpio making an near exact square (90 degree angle; stressful), we may find ourselves running up against a wall built of our fears and demons. And if full moons bring us to a resolution and prepare us for the next journey, in order to move forward we have to take inventory of any impasse. And what’s in this impasse? All the things stashed away in our personal hell. I know, not pleasant! Thanks, Saturn in Scorpio! But that’s what Saturn in Scorpio is — shadow work.
No matter where I turn the awakening is screaming out at me. Every event and announcement of intention by the dark side, no matter how destructive and disturbing, is only precipitating more conscious awareness and very present, personal involvement by humanity. It’s a thrilling time. If it weren’t for what we consider to be terrible and tragic events being perpetrated on humanity, our tidal wave of awakening would not have the momentum it has gathered and continues to gain.
I’m not saying to bring on the madness, but I am saying they can’t do anything against the truth, only for it. They can only rage against it and thus give themselves away to the very people they’ve tried so hard to put to sleep. The joke’s on them.
I had a thought tonight as I was watching the night clouds pass in front of the huge super moon. I was thinking how true inner happiness is not contingent on circumstances. It’s born of a deep spiritual knowledge of our eternal nature and its connectivity to our glorious multiverse. While we’ve been entrained to think happiness comes after something transpires as in “happy endings”, we are entitled to live in an ever present “happy now” way of life, despite the difficulties we pass through, even the eventuality of death from this life and the intended demise of our planet.
Searching? Or Finding
As a synchronistic backdrop, playing in my mind was a song containing the wistful expression of a lost and seeking generation longing to find this place of conscious awareness. Simon and Garfunkel’s classic America was a theme of my generation as it expressed that frustration of chasing a dream that was only an illusion, which unfortunately led to the demise and destruction of many a despairing life as society was deliberately imploded by negative influences.
Having been at Woodstock I had a front row seat to the desperation of my generation to find meaning amid chaos and often violent eruptions of artistic expression. While the event was a thrill to see so many like minded searchers, it left a bittersweet taste in my mouth for our future. There was too much chaos, blind directionless rebellion and lack of real conscious people-empowering leadership. It was a hip knock off of something I knew in my heart could have been a much more clear headed and thoughtfully constructive and directed event.
Knowing what I know now about the CIA involvement in the drug and music scene and the occult underpinnings within that movement it makes sense, but it was a very sad feeling I came away with, although I didn’t know how to process it at the time. Perhaps sliding down a muddy hill in my rain soaked sleeping bag had something to do with my disillusionment, ha!
Manly P. Hall writes in the Secret Teachings of AllAges:
HARMONY is a state recognized by great philosophers as the immediate prerequisite of beauty. A compound is termed beautiful only when its parts are in harmonious combination. The world is called beautiful and its Creator is designated the Good because good perforce must act in conformity with its own nature; and good acting according to its own nature is harmony, because the good which it accomplishes is harmonious with the good which it is. Beauty, therefore, is harmony manifesting its own intrinsic nature in the world of form. The universe is made up of successive gradations of good, these gradations ascending from matter (which is the least degree of good) to spirit (which is the greatest degree of good).
Our modern knowledge of harmonies, concerning the realm of sound and music, stems from the ancient Greeks, who in turn developed theirs from what they learned from the Egyptians. Plato claimed that art in ancient Egypt had been practiced and perfected by God-like super beings for at least ten thousand years. The Gods Isis and Osiris were content to live their days playing music and reciting poetry. The oldest known depictions of harps and lyre’s can be found in ancient Egypt in the form of a laced three-string instrument. More strings were added as the understanding of the seven octaves became clearer. This discovery is attributed to the Egyptian god of art Thoth, later known by the Greeks as Hermes. In the fifth century the Greek bishop and historian Theodoret was exposed to a vast amount of ancient knowledge of the Middle East while growing up in Turkey. He became one of the most influential Christian scholars and theologians of his time and openly debated the philosophies of popular Greek thinkers like Plato.
The major departure from Einsteinium physics is the strong belief in Ether, an invisible substance which permeates the substructure of the universe, and torsion of the ether, along with resonance of the electromagnetic properties of objects and atoms. It further depends on an analogous relationship between music, sound, and these electro-magnetic resonance. The idea being that sound in music and in other manners, can create resonance that affect large bodies and small, and can even induce resonance of an electromagnetic type. Light is one such part of the electromagnetic spectrum, as are radio waves. Sound can be within the normal hearing range, or ultrasound, high above that range, or infrasonic, sound well below the range of hearing. Weapons of sound can be created by the use of resonances.
….Ancient Astronaut theorists claim that sound weapons brought down the walls of Jericho and not Joshua’s groovy jazz band funkin’ up the joint with seven ram horns. These sonic war weapons are currently being used by American police forces in the form of the LRAD (Long Range Acoustic Device) cannon. Producing an ear-awful 150 decibels, the LRAD sound cannon has already been used by Israeli soldiers on crowds of Palestinian protesters. It has also been used by the Pittsburg, Chicago and NY police departments during similar crowd controlling events. LRAD cannons have been shipped to police stations throughout the country to be used on citizens during civil unrest and election-day riots. The designers of this weapon were even awarded a huge contract from the Navy.
Another sound weapon of the future is the Wave gun that fires sonic bullets. No longer science fiction these sound bullets according to ultrasound pioneer Woody Norris, “the sounds will drop anyone to the floor clutching their ears the instant they are shot. Most people, even if they plug their ears, it will produce the equivalent of an instant migraine. Some people, it will knock them on their knees.” These sonic bullets essentially blast a beam of 145 decibels, pure vibrating agony that’s guaranteed to rattle your skull. The Army has been using sound weapons to flush out Afghan terrorists hiding in caves and the marketing wizards of Madison Avenue are trying to implant sonic advertisements directly in your mind. The use of high frequency mind control techniques will be discussed at length in a later chapter. The physics of sound continues to evolve and so does our understanding of what sound actually is.
Why Do We “Submit’ and application for Banks to take our deposits???… because when we “submit” we are joining a corporation who can declare bankruptcy, or bank holidays, and keep your money!!
The Federal Reserve just made policy that they can raid your bank accounts….
“In addition, the S.E.C. adopted rules that give funds the ability to stem investor redemptions during times of stress. Money market funds, in these situations, will be able to impose fees and delays that temporarily prevent investors from taking out their cash.
Wall Street seemed largely pleased with the final result.”
Regulators on Wednesday imposed new restrictions on a vast market that played a significant role in the 2008 financial crisis.
The Securities and Exchange Commission voted 3 to 2 to adopt a set of new rules for money market funds, a $2.6 trillion industry where ordinary individuals and sophisticated institutions alike park their money. The rules come after years of debate among regulators and lobbying from Wall Street.
The rules “will reduce the risk of runs in money market funds and provide important new tools that will help further protect investors and the financial system,” Mary Jo White, the S.E.C. chairwoman, said in a statement. “Together, this strong reform package will make our markets more resilient and enhance transparency and fairness of these products for America’s investors.”

One key quiet game-changer in this cat and mouse game has already been decided and it means customer funds are no longer safe in any of our banking institutions.
In 2012, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that when a bank is insolvent, under duress or in bankruptcy the funds in private checking accounts could be used to pay off debts or loans owed by the bank.
Since the ruling gives banks the right to co-mingle customer funds with their own, no crime can be committed for the use of customer deposited monies.
According to Walker Todd, former lawyer for the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and Cleveland: “Basically, there is a new 7th Circuit opinion saying that there is no reason to impose a constructive trust on a lender’s takings of customers’ funds from client commodity firms that were used (inappropriately) to secure the firms’ borrowings, as long as the lender can say that it did not know WITH CERTAINTY that customers’ funds were being repledged. Negligence and misappropriation (vs. knowing criminal intent) are now a sufficient excuse for letting the lender keep the money and go to the head of the line for distributions in bankruptcies of the client commodity firms.”
When a customer deposits money into a bank, the bank essentially issues a promise to have those funds available when the customer returns to withdraw the deposited amount.
When the same customer withdraws funds from their account (whether checking or savings) the customer assumes that the bank has enough funds to cover their withdrawal; including the presumption that their monies are separate from the bank’s assets.
Now, those funds are up for grabs by the bank at their discretion without explanation to the customer – nor is the bank obligated to recoup the customer should they “lose” those funds due to bad loans, bankruptcy or stock market loss.
Think about how this massive debt, historically never been seen before, gets balanced..????
The total federal debt of the U.S. government has now increased more than $7 trillion while Barack Obama has been president.
Our army that now remains in Vietnam is in a state approaching collapse, with individual units avoiding or having refused combat, murdering their officers and noncommissioned officers, drug-ridden, and dispirited where not near-mutinous Conditions exist among American forces in Vietnam that have only been exceeded in this century by… the collapse of the Tsarist armies in 1916 and 1917.
– Armed Forces Journal, June 1971
The most neglected aspect of the Vietnam War is the soldiers’ revolt–the mass upheaval from below that unraveled the American army. It is a great reality check in an era when the U.S. touts itself as an invincible nation. For this reason, the soldiers’ revolt has been written out of official history.
The army revolt pitted enlisted soldiers against officers who viewed them as expendable. Liberal academics have reduced the radicalism of the 1960s to middle-class concerns and activities, while ignoring military rebellion. But the militancy of the 1960s began with the Black liberation struggle, and it reached its climax with the unity of White and Black soldiers.
A working-class army
From 1964 to 1973, from the Gulf of Tonkin resolution to the final withdrawal of U.S. troops from Vietnam, 27 million men came of draft age. A majority of them were not drafted due to college, professional, medical or National Guard deferments. Only 40 percent were drafted and saw military service. A small minority, 2.5 million men (about 10 percent of those eligible for the draft), were sent to Vietnam.
This small minority was almost entirely working-class or rural youth. Their average age was 19. Eighty-five percent of the troops were enlisted men; 15 percent were officers. The enlisted men were drawn from the 80 percent of the armed forces with a high school education or less. At this time, college education was universal in the middle class.
In the elite colleges, the class discrepancy was even more glaring. The upper class did none of the fighting. Of the 1,200 Harvard graduates in 1970, only 2 went to Vietnam, while working-class high schools routinely sent 20 percent, 30 percent of their graduates and more to Vietnam.
College students who were not made officers were usually assigned to noncombat support and service units. High school dropouts were three times more likely to be sent to combat units that did the fighting and took the casualties. Combat infantry soldiers, “the grunts,” were entirely working class. They included a disproportionate number of Black working-class troops. Blacks, who formed 12 percent of the troops, were often 25 percent or more of the combat units.
When college deferments expired, joining the National Guard was a favorite way to get out of serving in Vietnam. During the war, 80 percent of the Guard’s members described themselves as joining to avoid the draft. You needed connections to get in–which was no problem for Dan Quayle, George W. Bush and other draft evaders. In 1968, the Guard had a waiting list of more than 100,000. It had triple the percentage of college graduates that the army did. Blacks made up less than 1.5 percent of the National Guard. In Mississippi, Blacks were 42 percent of the population, but only one Black man served in a Guard of more than 10,000.
The single quotes in this article’s headline denote a paraphrase of something Obama basically said Wednesday at his U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit specifically in defense of his use of executive orders to bypass Congress whenever he feels like it.
“The American people don’t want me just standing around twiddling my thumbs and waiting for Congress to get something done,” Obama said.
Really? The American people don’t want the president of the United States to follow the Constitution?
So worried about a “Potential act of genocide” is it?
“Fears of a humanitarian catastrophe.”
That’s very interesting, considering that the U.S. funded and armed the ISIS group it now wants to bomb. And while we’re on to topic of funding and arming terrorists, remember that the U.S. is the primary state sponsor of the international terrorist organization known as the State of Israel.
America is coming to help (WARNING: GRAPHIC):
President Barack Obama said on Thursday he had authorized U.S. air strikes to blunt the onslaught of Islamist militants in northern Iraq and began airdrops of supplies to besieged religious minorities to prevent a “potential act of genocide.”
Obama, in his most significant response yet to the crisis, said he approved “targeted” use of air power to protect U.S. personnel if Islamic State militants advance further toward Arbil, the capital of the Kurdish semi-autonomous region in northern Iraq, or threaten Americans anywhere in the country.
He said air strikes, which would be the first carried out by the U.S. military in Iraq since its withdrawal in 2011, could also be used if necessary in support of Iraqi and Kurdish forces trying to break the Islamists’ siege of a mountaintop where tens of thousands of civilians are trapped.
“Earlier this week, one Iraqi in the area cried to the world, ‘There is no one coming to help’,” said Obama, who had been reluctant to deepen U.S. military re-engagement in Iraq.
When more than 400,000 people were left without safe drinking water in Ohio and Michigan this past weekend, Lake Erie’s troubling algae blooms received intense scrutiny. Though people were told Monday it was once again safe to drink the water, there’s still major concern: harmful algae blooms have been a growing problem in Lake Erie for the last decade, and are a worldwide issue with consequences for the environment and human health.
August 1 satellite image courtesy of NASA shows an algae bloom on the western side of Lake Erie.
To be precise, there is not one menace but two. And many of the people who know this place best find it almost impossible to decide which is worse, given that both would desecrate one of the country’s most beloved wilderness shrines.
On the South Rim plateau, less than two miles from the park’s entrance, the gateway community of Tusayan, a town just a few blocks long, has approved plans to construct 2,200 homes and three million square feet of commercial space that will include shops and hotels, a spa and a dude ranch.
Among its many demands, the development requires water, and tapping new wells would deplete the aquifer that drives many of the springs deep inside the canyon — delicate oases with names like Elves Chasm and Mystic Spring. These pockets of life, tucked amid a searing expanse of bare rock, are among the park’s most exquisite gems.
It’s a terrible plan, but an even deeper affront resides in the story of how the project came about.
Overseen by the US Department of Defense (DoD) under the Transformational Medical Technologies program (TMT) of the Defense Threat Reduction Agency and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) have spent millions of dollars conducting scientific research into the Ebola virus, its potential for being turned into a bio-weapon and certain vaccine efforts through two drug corporations, Massachusetts-based Sarepta Therapeutics and Tekmira Pharmaceuticals of Canada . Then the funding was abruptly cut.
The TMT creates relationships with private sector biotech firms, pharmaceutical corporations and academic institutions, as well as other government agencies to advance biological warfare, research viral and biological weapons and estimate threat levels of all biological agents based on ability to infect and effectiveness of devastation.
The DoD suddenly stopped funding Ebola vaccine research through these two corporations due to financial constraints. With the sporadic nature of Ebola outbreaks, combined with the absolute deadly nature of the virus makes it a hard sell to large pharmaceutical corporations because it “isn’t a huge customer base and big pharma is obviously interested in big profits. So these niche products which are important for biodefense are really driven by small companies,” according to Larry Zeitlin, president of Mapp Biophamracueticals, who is developing therapies to combat Ebola.
Mysteriously, microbiologists and virologists who were involved with research into immunology and bioweapons have either gone missing or found dead over two decades. Some of these scientists had ties to the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the NIH, the DoD – just to name a few. While the number of experts involved in infectious disease research having died under questionable circumstances has risen exponentially, the US government has remained non-chalant.
In November of 2002, DynCorp was given a $322 million contract to develop, produce and store vaccines for the DoD. DynCorp has been connected to PROMIS, a software program designed to identify and target specific individuals for operations known only to the US government.
One of the most shocking calls for depopulation came from Dr. Eric R. Pianka, scientist at the University of Texas back in 2006. Pianka was speaking to an audience of fellow scientists, students, and professors when he proclaimed that 90% of the world’s population needed to be killed using a weaponized form of the Ebola virus. He stated that an airborne version of Ebola would be more effective than the HIV/AIDS virus has been since its release in 1979 because of the speed in which the victim dies.
Did you know that the federal government has an “Office of Population Affairs”? I didn’t realize this either until someone sent me a link to their website. The Office of Population Affairs operates under the umbrella of the Department of Health & Human Services, and it might as well be called “The Office of Population Control” because almost everything on the website is about controlling or reducing the size of the population.
After much speculation about the current Ebola outbreak, one medical expert has gone on record to voice concerns about what is being called the worst Ebola outbreak in recorded history.
“I am concerned about the prevalence and pathogenicity of the situation, which is too much even for Ebola. Too many people are dying. I don’t rule out that there’s something artificial here …. What is happening with Ebola there, could there also be something man-made about it?” Gennady Onischenko, Russia’s former chief medical officer, told RT News on Thursday.
Onischenko’s comments are the first from a credible medical expert that openly cast doubt on the current outbreak’s natural origin.
The World Health Organization on Friday declared the Ebola outbreak in West Africa to be an international public health emergency that requires an extraordinary response to stop its spread.
So, in terms of what could be most unhelpful at this stage, the Natural News website has surpassed even the Daily Mirror by publishing a blog entitled “Treating Ebola with Homeopathy”.
It includes advice on how to “make your own Ebola remedy”. Under no circumstances should anyone attempt this.
What you need:
1. A face mask and gloves
2. Two bottles (50 ml up to 500 ml glass or plastic bottles) with caps
3. Clean water (mineral or tap water)
4. An Ebola sample: some spit or other disease product, such as blood, from a person infected with Ebola, or who is suspected sick with it.
Any small quantity will do, even a pinhead.
5. An alcoholic liquid, such as whisky, brandy, rum, etc.
6. Half an hour of your time.
An “Ebola sample”(?!?!) In terms of irresponsibility this is one of the most offensive articles we can remember.
We live in a Police State where fear trumps individual rights and police get away with murder of U.S. citizens with impunity and immunity from prosecution.

Tensions are high in Ferguson, Missouri and a large police presence is on hand after a teenager was shot to death by a police officer.
The St. Louis County Police Department held a press conference Sunday morning where they stated Brown was shot “more than just a couple of times” by a 6-year member of the Ferguson Police department.
The incident happened in a roadway Saturday afternoon near the Canfield Green Apartments in the 2900 block of Canfield.
Witnesses tell News 4 that Mike Brown, 18, was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot multiple times by a Ferguson police officer.
“They didn’t have any reason to, but they hit my nephew in the head with their rifle. He’s 13″

Via: Washington Post:
Russia on Thursday banned most imports of Western food products, a sweeping escalation in an economic war that will deal a multibillion-dollar hit to affected nations but will also unreel wide-ranging consequences at home.
The measures were a signal that Russia is not backing down from a confrontation that has sent Western-Russian tensions to heights not seen since the Cold War — and that it is willing to risk barer shelves and higher food prices at home in the name of striking a blow against countries that have tried to punish it for its alleged support of a pro-Russian insurgency in eastern Ukraine.
Russia suspended imports of meat, fish, fruit, vegetables and milk products from the United States, the 28-nation European Union, Norway, Canada and Australia for a period of a year. The move came in retaliation for sanctions those countries issued over the conflict in Ukraine, where Russia is accused of sending weaponry and other support to rebels. Russia has denied the charges.

The advancement of robots that can do our jobs for us will create a class-divide not seen since the 19th century, a report by the Pew Research Centre in America has found.
As machines have continued to displace factory workers, personal assistants and receptionists over the last decade, advanced countries must adapt their education systems to turn average students into exceptional ones who can outperform a robot, sociologists told Pew.
“The jobs that robots will leave for humans will be those that require thought and knowledge,” Howard Rheingold, an internet sociologist, told think tank Pew.
“Education systems in the US and much of the rest of the world are still sitting students in rows and columns, teaching them to keep quiet and memorise what is told to them, preparing for life in a 20th century factory.”
“We’re going to have to come to grips with a long-term unemployment crisis and the fact that – strictly from an economic point of view, not a moral point of view – there are more ‘surplus humans’,” said Karl Fogel, a partner at Open Tech Strategies.
If the education system does not produce more technologically savvy and creative high achievers as the norm, then the rise of robot workers is “certain to lead to an increase in income inequality, a continued hollowing out of the middle class, and even riots, social unrest, and/or the creation of a permanent, unemployable ‘underclass’,” the Pew Research Centre report concludes.
Officials in western Maryland’s Washington County schools will be tracking students’ social media activity while at school using new software that scans for keywords like “kill” or “bomb.”
We’re told that the Great Recession that kicked off in 2008 is finally over, but to many Americans it doesn’t seem as though they’re back where they were before the crash. They’re probably right: the net worth of average Americans is only 57% of what it was in 2007, according to a new report.

Whistleblowers getting the shaft is no a laughing matter. But the guy standing in that empty building, thinking he should have been beamed up to meet his sky god…
Oh Lardy, I laughed my ass off. Couldn’t help it.
Via: Washington Post:
In the past, whistleblowers have had their desks moved to break rooms, broom closets and basements. It’s a clever punishment, good-government activists say, that exploits a gray area in the law.
The whole thing can look minor on paper. They moved your office. So what? But the change is designed to afflict the striving soul of a federal worker, with a mix of isolation, idle time and lost prestige.
“I was down there in that office for 16 months. Nothing. They gave me no meaningful work,” said Walter Tamosaitis, a former contract worker at an Energy Department installation in Washington state.
Four years ago, he raised concerns about the processing of radioactive waste. Then he was transferred to a windowless room in the building’s basement.
“It was so lonely,” he said. One day, there was a big snowstorm outside. In the basement, the phone rang. It was his wife, who’d seen a TV report that his workplace had been shut down. He went upstairs: lights out. Doors locked. Nobody told him.
“I thought the Rapture had occurred,” Tamosaitis said. “And I said, ‘Well, [expletive]. I’m the good guy, it can’t be the Rapture. I should be gone, and they should be here.’?”
The following is a list of Palestinian demands presented to Israel by the Palestinian resistance in Gaza, during indirect talks held in Egypt between Israeli and Palestinians teams, as published by al-Watan News :
1. Israel totally rejects establishing either a Seaport or an Airport in the Gaza Strip.
2. Totally rejects the release of all detainees who were released under the Shalit Prisoner Swap Deal, and rearrested by Israel.
3. Israel “reserves the right” to act against the tunnels in Gaza.
4. Israel “reserves the right” to conduct targeted killings.
5. Agrees to consider the Rafah Border Terminal as an Egyptian-Palestinian issue.
6. Agrees to release the fourth phase of veteran detainees “as a goodwill gesture toward president Mahmoud Abbas.”
7. Agrees to extend the Palestinian fishing zone in Gaza territorial waters.
8. Agrees to allow the transfer of money for paying salaries in the Gaza Strip.
9. Agrees to ease restrictions on Palestinians crossing the Erez terminal, will not relax restrictions on goods.
10. Agrees to the entry of construction equipment, but only under international supervision.
Ottawa is refusing to bring injured children from Gaza to Canada for treatment, despite pleas from hospitals, health-care workers and the Ontario government.
It’s too risky to transport injured children and keep them away from family, Foreign Affairs spokesperson Adam Hodge via email. He said Ottawa’s “exploring” other kinds of aid but wouldn’t say what that would entail or when it would materialize.
In the meantime, Izzeldine Abuelaish can’t believe anyone would refuse to help a hurt child. … Full article
