There are thousands hacking at the branches of evil to one who is striking at the root.
Henry David Thoreau
Sedgwick, Maine, the first town in the US
to legalize any kind of food transaction as free and legal in order to keep the right to produce raw milk, organic produce, free-range eggs, and more, is revolutionizing the way America keeps its food rights – including saying no to GMOs. In other words, it is the first town to declare food sovereignty while opposing both state and federal laws.
The town has passed an ordinance
that protects citizens’ rights to “produce, sell, purchase, and consume any food of their choosing.” The ordinance laughs in the face of FDA regulations and their hodge-podge way of giving food a rubber stamp of approval, especially GMO. Three additional towns in Maine are expected to pass similar ordinances as well.
The move is somewhat similar to a move one England town made, where the citizens transformed their entire town’s landscape into a giant food-producing garden. Both are great examples of moving toward food sovereignty.
It isn’t just a declaration on the whim of a few city council members. There is a warrant added: “It shall be unlawful for any law or regulation adopted by the state or federal government to interfere with the rights recognized by this Ordinance.” This means that federal interference is prohibited in our food supply – at least in Maine. If you can’t get Monsanto out of the government, take the government out of your food. It’s a brilliant way around the convoluted system now in place that almost gave Monsanto the right to be exempt from federal prosecution for its poison food and which tries to hoist it upon the whole Nation without consent.
David Gumpert reports
“What about potential legal liability and state or federal inspections? It’s all up to the seller and buyer to negotiate. “Patrons purchasing food for home consumption may enter into private agreements with those producers or processors of local foods to waive any liability for the consumption of that food. Producers or processors of local foods shall be exempt from licensure and inspection requirements for that food as long as those agreements are in effect.” Imagine that–buyer and seller can agree to cut out the lawyers. That’s almost un-American, isn’t it?”
A simple seller and buyer agreement is entered into where federal regulations can be bypassed by the seller agreeing to consume food grown by their neighbors organically in their garden or by the farm up the street with their own hormone-free dairy cows that customers have known for decades. It takes the feds and their dirty Monsanto money right out of the game. It is commercially grown food
that is killing us all, after all – not locally grown food.
For those with their heads in a noodle about bypassing federal laws, the citizens of Maine have stated, “We the radicals who concocted this mutinous act of infamy believe that according to the Home Rule provisions of our State Constitution, the citizens of Sedgwick have the right to enact an ordinance that is “local and municipal in character.”
In Maine, citizens can take advantage of local bounty, seasonal organic crops, and the good-old-fashioned way we used to produce food without Big Ag and commercial interference. Rural America is putting the big city budget of Monsanto to shame with this innovative way of taking down the monopolizing food giant. It’s about time ‘radicals’ in every small town across this nation did the same.
(Ed ~ Suicides are on a steep rise with our youth. And why not? They look up and see no future for them because we, the Baby Doomers, haven’t given them the vision. We rely on our Mis-Leaders to guide them. When I was young I could cut lawns, deliver newspapers and work at the gas stations. Now, none of those options are available to our youth, as they have little skill and even less hope. Most, cannot afford college, cannot get a job that can pay for them to move out of their home and have little skills to make it on their own.)
Suicide rates among middle-aged Americans have risen sharply in the past decade, prompting concern that a generation of baby boomers who have faced years of economic worry and easy access to prescription painkillers may be particularly vulnerable to self-inflicted harm.
More people now die of suicide than in car accidents, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which published the findings in Friday’s issue of its Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report. In 2010 there were 33,687 deaths from motor vehicle crashes and 38,364 suicides.
Suicide has typically been viewed as a problem of teenagers and the elderly, and the surge in suicide rates among middle-aged Americans is surprising.
From 1999 to 2010, the suicide rate among Americans ages 35 to 64 rose by nearly 30 percent, to 17.6 deaths per 100,000 people, up from 13.7. Although suicide rates are growing among both middle-aged men and women, far more men take their own lives. The suicide rate for middle-aged men was 27.3 deaths per 100,000, while for women it was 8.1 deaths per 100,000.
The most pronounced increases were seen among men in their 50s, a group in which suicide rates jumped by nearly 50 percent, to about 30 per 100,000. For women, the largest increase was seen in those ages 60 to 64, among whom rates increased by nearly 60 percent, to 7.0 per 100,000.

For the past couple of weeks, we’ve all been wondering why Google bought Boston Dynamics, the company that makes those creepy Big Dog and PETMAN robots for the military. This comes after the company announced a project to eliminate death, and after building a secret installation out of cargo crates on a barge in San Francisco Bay. It’s as if Google is in the early stages of building a city state.

U.S. Army convoys will soon be able to roll into even the roughest of unfriendly foreign urban areas and combat zones without the worry of loss of life, thanks to new technology that will make large vehicles fully autonomous.
In demonstrations earlier this month at Fort Hood, Texas, the U.S. Army Tank-Automotive Research, Development and Engineering Center (TARDEC) and Lockheed Martin demonstrated the ability of the Autonomous Mobility Appliqué System (AMAS), which gives full autonomy to convoys to operate in urban environments. In tests, driverless tactical vehicles were able to navigate hazards and obstacles including pedestrians, oncoming traffic, road intersections, traffic circles and stalled and passing vehicles.
Under an initial $11 million contract in 2012, Lockheed Martin developed the multiplatform kit which integrates low-cost sensors and control systems with Army and Marine tactical vehicles to enable autonomous operation in convoys. According to Lockheed, AMAS also gives drivers an automated option to alert, stop and adjust, or take full control under user supervision.
The global top 100 list had 42 companies from the US and six from Russia. The total sales of arms and military services by these hundred companies in 2012 amounted to no less than $395 billion.
“Sales by the 42 US-based arms producers amounted to 58 per cent of the total arms sales of the Top 100, with 30 companies based in Western Europe making up another 28 per cent of the total,” SIPRI says.
The US-based Lockheed Martin was followed by Boeing (also US-based) and United Kingdom’s BAE Systems on number three.
It is interesting that this article doesn’t mention the banks which are more than happy to loan any warring country money – at interest – in order to fund their wars.
That is the next set of statistics we definitely need to see here.
The warmongers are not just the defense companies, but the banking corporations, which love war.

Near Future Game Plan for Open Geo-Engineering?
What if the CA drought is being geo-engineered so that the sheeple will cry for a “solution” and Big Government will then come to the rescue to “initiate” sky painting to “save the day”, thus validating all geo-engineering in the future??? There already planting the seeds…watch David Keith, “suggest” playing God with the weather is a possible solution.
Fact is they’ve been modifying our weather since the 1960’s.
Planetary Weapons and Military Weather Modification: Chemtrails, Atmospheric Geoengineering and Environmental Warfare
‘“Extreme weather and climate events” are linked to climate change while no mention is made of government programs deliberately aimed at modifying the weather and inducing earthquakes, drought, rain, and tsunamis.
The modern weather modification program, at least in the US, is over 70 years old. Public service announcements printed in newspapers back in the 1960s warned of government intention to modify the weather.
Life Magazine, back in the 50s and 60s, continually covered US weather modification programs, including Project Stormfury which redirected and reduced hurricane intensity from 1962 to 1983. The IPCC’s continuing and absolute silence on such programs is deafening.’

Australia’s Great Barrier Reef watchdog gave the green light on Friday for millions of cubic metres of dredged mud to be dumped near the fragile reef to create the world’s biggest coal port and possibly unlock $28 billion in coal projects.
The dumping permit clears the way for a major expansion of the port of Abbot Point for two Indian firms and Australian billionaire miner Gina Rinehart, who together have $16 billion worth of coal projects in the untapped, inland Galilee Basin.
“This is a significant milestone in developing our Galilee Basin coal projects, which represent the creation of over 20,000 direct and indirect jobs and over $40 billion in taxes and royalties,” said Darren Yeates, chief executive of GVK-Hancock, a joint venture between India’s GVK conglomerate and Rinehart’s Hancock Prospecting.
Environmentalists, scientists and tour operators had fought the plan to dump soil 25 km (15 miles) from the reef, which they fear will harm delicate corals and seagrasses and potentially double ship traffic through the World Heritage marine park.

Dominant Social Themes (Memes)
A Dominant Social Theme is a belief system (usually concerning a purported social or natural problem) launched by the monetary elite that grows into an archetype or meme, usually after much repetition. The problem may be centered on people themselves (overpopulation) or something caused by people (global warming). The term was invented by Anthony Wile and first utilized in his book The Liberation of Flockhead. The term actually took on a more defined meaning in the subsequent release of Wile’s followup book, High Alert.
Dominant Social Themes often are launched from the centers of the power elite‘s global architecture, including the United Nations, World Bank, World Trade Organization and World Health Organization, where the related problems are declared to be such. The themes are then rebroadcast by the mainstream media.
The hallmarks of a problem that drives a Dominant Social Theme are:
• The problem is presented as one that can be solved only by those in authority.
• The prescribed solution requires action by, and greater authority for, social and political institutions that are distant from the societies they pretend to benefit.
• Reminders of the problem persist no matter how much evidence comes to light that the problem is fictitious, trivial or irremediable.
• The problem may co-exist in the public’s mind with other purported problems with which it is inconsistent.
The United Nations is an example of an authority-based solution to a problem proposed by a Dominant Social Theme. The problem is international conflict, including war. The solution is for national governments to be made subject to a worldwide authority. The European Union is the United Nations writ small. The problem is isolated national markets and a lack of economic cooperation. The solution is for the national governments of Europe to be made subject to a European authority.
ex. 2012 elections offered no candidate to get us out of wars and use our tax dollars to take care of those in this country so in need.
The Hegelian Dialectic is a philosophical approach that in principle explains how human beings progress toward a better and more egalitarian condition but in practice provides the power elite with a strategy for controlling society. Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (August 27, 1770 – November 14, 1831) was among the most consequential philosophers of the Age of Enlightenment. His was heavily influenced by Plato, whose social ideal was rule by an elite composed of philosopher-kings. Though Hegel may not have intended to provide a Platonic methodology for the modern-day control of the many by the few, that is how his insights have been used.
From our more modern vantage point, Hegel’s dialectic may not seem so persuasive as an explanation of all things – and in fact, it probably is not. But for the elite of his day, and for the monetary elite today, the Hegelian dialectic provides tools for the manipulation of society. To move the public from point A to point B, one need only find a spokesperson for a certain argument and position him or her as an authority. That person represents Goalpost One. Another spokesperson is positioned on the other side of the argument, to represent Goalpost Two.
Argument A and B can then be used to manipulate a given social discussion. If one wishes, for instance, to promote Idea C, one merely needs to promote the arguments of Goalpost One (that tend to promote Idea C) more effectively than the arguments of Goalpost Two. This forces a slippage of Goalpost Two’s position. Thus both Goalpost One and Goalpost Two advance downfield toward Idea C. Eventually, Goalpost Two occupies Goalpost One’s original position. The “anti-C” argument now occupies the pro-C position. In this manner whole social conversations are shifted from, say, a debate over market freedom vs. socialism to a debate about the degree of socialism that is desirable.
The Hegelian dialectic is a powerful technique for influencing the conversations of cultures and nations, especially if one already controls (owns) much of the important media in which the arguments take place. One can then, as the monetary elite characteristically do, emphasize one argument at the expense of the other, effectively shifting the positions of Goalposts One and Two.
ex. Proposition 30 in CA to label GMO’s We were not even allowed to vote or discuss whether GMO”s should be banned outright.
(more than likely candidates: Anonymous, Alex Jones, Russian TV (RT),Thom Hartman, Michael Moore, Glen Beck, Bill Maher, Jon Stewart, etc. In this era, they simply would not be able to speak out to the nation without being silenced or compromised.
The good news is that they bring to light important information that most are not even aware of. The bad news is there is much deeper stories down the rabbit hole that keeps us from knowing the whole truth and nothing but the truth.)
Controlled opposition involves a political organization used as a front in order to disseminate information useful to a ideologically opposed third party. IE a staunchly pro-capitalist intelligence community might deliberately set up a left-wing party in order to divide, confuse or discredit communism.
The Delphi Technique
The Delphi Technique and consensus building are both founded in the same principle – the Hegelian dialectic of thesis, antithesis, and synthesis, with synthesis becoming the new thesis. The goal is a continual evolution to “oneness of mind” (consensus means solidarity of belief) -the collective mind, the wholistic society, the wholistic earth, etc. In thesis and antithesis, opinions or views are presented on a subject to establish views and opposing views. In synthesis, opposites are brought together to form the new thesis. All participants in the process are then to accept ownership of the new thesis and support it, changing their views to align with the new thesis. Through a continual process of evolution, “oneness of mind” will supposedly occur.
In group settings, the Delphi Technique is an unethical method of achieving consensus on controversial topics. It requires well-trained professionals, known as “facilitators” or “change agents,” who deliberately escalate tension among group members, pitting one faction against another to make a preordained viewpoint appear “sensible,” while making opposing views appear ridiculous.
In her book Educating for the New World Order
, author and educator Beverly Eakman makes numerous references to the need of those in power to preserve the illusion that there is “community participation in decision-making processes, while in fact lay citizens are being squeezed out.” The setting or type of group is immaterial for the success of the technique. The point is that, when people are in groups that tend to share a particular knowledge base, they display certain identifiable characteristics, known as group dynamics, which allows the facilitator to apply the basic strategy

Life is not Fair. Some win, some lose. Earn your keep. Pull yourselves up by your own bootstraps. Don’t question authority. Because I said so, if for no other reason. This is going to hurt me more than it is you. It’s a jungle out there. Those that disobey and commit crime must do the time We need to get them before they get us. Either your with us or your with the terrorists.
Demopublican: MOTHER Figure: Caring/Doting/Nosy aka the Blue Team.
Everyone is equal with equal access to everything and all should be cared for, especially those that cannot help themselves or life has been unfair to them. We must all sacrifice to the greater good of those less fortunate. Those that have must give to those that don’t. We know what is best for you. We, the rulers of you, must intrude on your private lives and property, vaccinate you and your children without choice and control your rights so that no one is taking advantage of another. Don’t concern yourself with bigger issues. Mommy will make it all better.
The two party ‘system’ of parenting government necessarily means that we are all to be treated as children and babies that need to be looked after, taught lessons and kept under rule because we cannot possibly figure it out for ourselves or chaos would rain supreme.
The government says you do not have a right to sell raw milk in most states. The FDA states you do not have a right to choose the foods you want to eat. They believe they have the authority to tell you what you can eat.
And the government taxes our income illegally under an unratified 16th Amendment to pay its debt to a private bank from which it borrowed money, aka the Federal Reserve. Such governmental abuses are exactly why the Constitution and Bill of Rights were written and adopted.
The states do not want you to know that you have a right to reject vaccinations. So they make vaccinations mandatory before accepting your children in school. They rarely tell you that you can sign a religious exemption form. You give up your rights because of ignorance.
I hear many people saying they have a right to free or low-cost health care, and they want the government to ensure they get this right. They also think they have a right to health. These are not rights. You are not guaranteed health. You earn it.
Study shows how many crime labs are paid per conviction… not per test.
To understand why the United States is the most incarcerated nation in the world
, all aspects of the legal system must be scrutinized. One of the least considered points of corruption is the crime lab.
A recent study found that crime labs across the country are literally being incentivized to turn out results that will be favorable to prosecutors in getting criminal convictions. Some say that this introduces a point of compromise in a process that is supposed to be free of bias and partiality.
Its not hard to imagine why. Biased reward schedules are how animals are trained. When a performance is rewarded, a subject will produce more of it. When a performance is not rewarded, a subject will produce less of it.
Like a puppy being rewarded for performing a trick, the government rewards crime labs for “verifying” that unknown substances are illegal narcotics; for finding a driver’s blood alcohol content to be over a certain arbitrary number; for determining that a package of drugs is over a certain arbitrary weight so a more draconian charge can be imposed.
The military in Egypt staged a brutal coup throwing President Morsi in jail, attacking the Muslim Brotherhood, and killing over a thousand. The Muslim Brothers responded by attacking Christians and burning churches. Probably because they can’t find any more Jews to attack.
How U.S. Supports Egypt’s military coup on its people as democratically elected President is taken out.
Since the Egyptian military overthrew the democratically elected government of Mohammed Morsi (himself no laudable democrat), Washington has stood firmly against democratic principles. The Obama administration refused to call what happened a coup in order to wiggle out of a legal requirement that would have prohibited military assistance.
When the president was finally forced to make a statement opposing the latest seizure of violence, in which security forces have killed more Egyptians than in the 2011 revolution against Mubarak, he again refused to halt the $1.5 billion U.S. aid, instead announcing the joint U.S.-Egyptian military exercises would be temporarily discontinued – an empty gesture if there ever was one.
Why is the American government so supportive of the military regime? Because geopolitical interests always trump the marvelous platitudes about democracy and freedom that our politicians prattle on about.
“We need them for the Suez Canal, we need them for the peace treaty with Israel, we need them for the overflights, and we need them for the continued fight against violent extremists who are as much of a threat to Egypt’s transition to democracy as they are to American interests,” Gen. James N. Mattis, former head of Central Command, told the New York Times.
