“This focus on money and power may do wonders in the marketplace, but it creates a tremendous crisis in our society. People who have spent all day learning how to sell themselves and to manipulate others are in no position to form lasting friendships or intimate relationships… Many Americans hunger for a different kind of society — one based on principles of caring, ethical and spiritual sensitivity, and communal solidarity. Their need for meaning is just as intense as their need for economic security.” — Michael Lerner, editor of Tikkun
Happy Full Moon in Virgo! This is the time of the year when we shine a light on health, wellness, craft, precision, organization, and purity. The full moon is exact March 16, 2014 at 1:08 pm EDT, 26 degrees Virgo/Pisces. The seeds and intentions we planted at the Virgo New Moon last September are now coming to fruition. At the full moon, there is a decision point, a revelation, and resolution as we prepare for the next lunar cycle.

All of us were raised with a particular worldview. Some of us may have even been conditioned and/or brainwashed into believing a certain way. Either way, none … More
Dr. Royal Raymond Rife could very well be the father of all holistic cancer research. Rife, born in 1888, was one of the founding pioneers in many of the technologies that are commonly used today and was a main contributor in the field of optics, electronics, radiochemistry, biochemistry, ballistics and aviation.
The Rife machine destroys infectious organisms, viruses, bacteria and fungus and has been used to eliminate 52 different microorganisms including cancer, tuberculosis, strep and leprosy.
Rife began his quest to treat disease with electricity in 1920 after discovering that there were specific electrical characteristics in each disease that he studied. Rife performed thousands of tests when trying to isolate the electrical characteristics of tuberculosis.
Rife began research cancer in 1922, but it took ten years before he was able to isolate the VX Virus, which was a cancer microorganism. A year later, Rife invented the Universal Microscope, which a light source technology that could magnify an object 60,000x its size. Because of his invention, Rife was the first person to see a live virus.
Once Rife was able to determine the main oscillation rate for each organism, he would then try to destroy it with light frequency resonance. Each microbe has a natural frequency that it resonates with, so when Rife increased their natural oscillations, the organism became distorted and disintegrated from structural stresses. More importantly, no surrounding tissue was harmed from these oscillations.
Rife named the process Mortal Oscillatory Rate (M.O.R).
As part of his research in 1934, Rife’s machine “cured” 14 out of 16 terminally ill cancer patients within two months. The remaining two were cured within the following 6 weeks, resulting in a 100% cure rate….
Male identity is a huge problem in that there are no role models for boys to emulate and they have little ability to express their “manhood”. Teenage suicides are rising rapidly as kids look up and see only dark futures…
Big changes are coming to the labour market that people and governments aren’t prepared for, Bill Gates believes.
Speaking at Washington, D.C., economic think tank The American Enterprise Institute on Thursday, Gates said than within 20 years, a lot of jobs will go away, replaced by software automation (“bots” in tech slang, though Gates used the term “software substitution”).
This what he said:
“Software substitution, whether it’s for drivers or waiters or nurses … it’s progressing. … Technology over time will reduce demand for jobs, particularly at the lower end of skill set. … 20 years from now, labour demand for lots of skill sets will be substantially lower. I don’t think people have that in their mental model.”
He’s not the only one predicting this gloomy scenario for workers. In January, the Economist ran a big profile naming over a dozen jobs sure to be taken over by robots in the next 20 years, including telemarketers, accountants and retail workers.
Gates believes that the tax codes are going to need to change to encourage companies to hire employees, including, perhaps, eliminating income and payroll taxes altogether. He’s also not a fan of raising the minimum wage, fearing that it will discourage employers to hire workers in the very categories of jobs that are most threatened by automation.
“When people say we should raise the minimum wage. I worry about what that does to job creation … potentially damping demand in the part of the labour spectrum that I’m most worried about.”
Continuing its rather intimidating streak of acquisitions, Google has acquired the British artificial intelligence company DeepMind for around $500 million. There is no doubt that this acquisition is linked to Google’s hiring of futurist and inventor Ray Kurzweil, and the string of eight robotics acquisitions that ended last year with the purchase of Boston Dynamics, one of the world’s biggest names in robotics. We would not be surprised if there was also a connection to Google’s acquisition of Nest, Google Glass, and its Calico life-extension project. All the pieces are now in place for a Google-created Skynet and the robotic Judgment Day apocalypse that would surely follow.
(We, as our child’s first teachers can do a much better job and we get to keep the money we pay into the government mandatory vaccination, education system.)
There are many states that are cutting the budget for public schools at the same time that they’re paying a lot out for testing… Texas, for example, a couple of years ago… cut $5.3 billion out of the public schools, and at the same time gave Pearson a contract for almost $500 million… They said that there would be 15 end-of-course exams in order to graduate high school and caused a parent rebellion: There were so many angry moms, they organized a group called TAMSA – Texans Advocating for Meaningful Student Assessment — better known as Moms Against Drunk Testing…
There are school districts where a very significant part of the school year is spent preparing to take the tests… Testing companies are selling what they call “interim assessments”… So kids are getting test prep for test prep. And the more time that is devoted to testing and preparing for tests, the less time is devoted to actual instruction…
If you have a good well you can pump groundwater at will; atypically, that’s not managed by the state, so you pay only for drilling and electricity. Until, of course, you draw down the water table (or your neighbor does, by drilling a deeper well). This race to the bottom is not sustainable, and wells are going dry as a result. You may have a large or small water supply contract from one of hundreds of water districts, granted when population was small, water was plentiful and environmental concerns ignored. These contracts have boosted the economy at great cost to the environment, and they’re ludicrously unfair: Some pay $7 per acre-foot (roughly 326,000 gallons), others $200; some have to buy on the open market, and cities generally pay over $1,000. Even then, supply may be inconsistent.
This is an issue that falls to the state government, which has begun to slowly do its work, passing a package of water policy bills in 2009 that mandate a start to measuring water use and a pricing system based in part on the amount of water used. “The regs don’t say that you have to use less water, but that you have to use it more efficiently,” Doug Obegi, a staff attorney at the Natural Resources Defense Council, explained to me.
California is heading into the Perfect Storm of drought and man made food price escalation due to the closing of the largest slaughterhouse in the North Bay Area, which also is putting out of business nearly all of our cattle ranchers in the area.

“You never want a serious crisis to go to waste. And what I mean by that is it’s an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.” ~~ 2008, Obama’s then-Chief of Staff and the current Mayor of Chicago, Rahm Emanuel, calmly told an audience of top corporate executives assembled for a Wall Street Journal “CEO Council” conference.
…the powers-that-shouldn’t-be have long understood that the crisis effect works whether the crisis is genuine and spontaneous, or a manufactured event that they themselves have staged, manipulated, or allowed to occur. No matter the origins of the crisis, they can use the panic that follows any spectacular event to implement their agenda.
As keen observers of the 2008 crisis know, the real bankster insiders were fully aware of what they were doing in blowing up the housing bubble, creating the subprime lending industry, and paying off the ratings agencies to AAA certify their toxic mortgage CDO garbage. We know, for example, that Goldman Sachs were betting against the very same subprime-backed derivatives they were selling to their own customers (or “muppets” as they refer to their own customers in internal emails). We know that the largest banks in the country used the panic and confusion of the housing market collapse to their advantage by instituting a system for automatically generating fraudulent foreclosure proceedings, often without any clear title on the property in question and sometimes on properties that weren’t even mortgaged. And we also know how the market emergency allowed the Fed to suspend its own conflict of interest rules and permit 18 of the current and former directors of the Federal Reserve’s bank branches to direct as much as $4 trillion in bailout money toward their own banks.
While Bernanke and his crew dithered the banksters around him swooped in for the kill. And now, five years later, with not a single major executive having done time for their participation in this highway robbery of the American financial system and the Fed’s bailout money, we know they got away with it.
Rahm would be proud.
To some extent, the public’s own incredulity at the idea that the banksters actually profited from this crisis has been responsible for this failure to prosecute. But the truth is that in any major financial crisis, wealth is neither created or destroyed, only transferred. And here in the fifth year of this amazing “jobless recovery” where banks continue to make record profits even as once-proud industrial cities declare bankruptcy, it is not difficult to see where that money has been transferred to.
It is now a well-known fact that the Chinese ideogram for opportunity is composed of the characters for “danger” and “opportunity.” Like many well-known facts, this one, too, is technically incorrect, but its popularity represents an underlying truth: crises really are opportunities for the would-be controllers of society.
But there’s an interesting twist to this analysis: it relies on the public panicking and begging for the powers-that-shouldn’t-be to solve the crisis. In the final equation, it’s the public that’s in control. All we have to do is to stop buying into the panic and hype surrounding these staged crises and stop going along with the emergency legislation that constantly turns out to benefit no one but the rich and powerful. Easier said than done, perhaps, but as we stand here in 2014, with the greatest levels of wealth disparity the world has ever seen and the entirety of the world economy threatening to be sucked into a black hole of phony debt during the next great staged crisis, it is more important than ever that we take this message to heart.
Ukraine’s Gold Reserves Secretely Flown Out and Confiscated by the New York Federal Reserve? The Spoils of War and Regime Change
[Pretty serious situation developing between Russia, China and the US over the Ukraine issue, well analyzed here. The US and their EU allies are only making fools of themselves which is great for the education of the world community. Keep your eyes peeled; it’s during these kinds of sensational situations and headlines when they’re usually up to something else they don’t want people noticing – or they’ll try and pull some kind of false flag. – Zen]
The Tiger Awakens: China Warns of “Retaliatory Action” and “Unforeseeable Consequences” Over U.S. Monday Deadline
Yesterday Secretary of State and flip-flopper extraordinaire John Kerry advised Russia that Vladimir Putin has until Monday to pull back his forces from Ukraine. Failure to do so would lead to serious repercussions. Kerry was light on details, but we can assume he was talking about some sort of economic sanctions:
Sen. Lindsey Graham, a South Carolina Republican and a top critic of President Obama’s foreign policy, asked what the administration would do if Russian forces advance farther into the eastern area of Ukraine, and the new government in Kiev asks the U.S. for weapons to fight the Russians.
Kerry responded carefully, saying “we have contingencies – we are talking through various options that may or may not be available.”
“Our hope is not to create hysteria or excessive concern about that at this point in time,” he said. “Our hope is to avoid that, but there’s no telling that we can.”
It’s quite obvious, based on Kerry’s statement, that the Obama Administration really has no idea what to do, as they are still talking through “various options,” something that probably should have been worked out well before President Obama began slinging rhetoric over the crisis.
What the Obama administration assumes will happen is that they’ll force Russia into compliance by coming after their economy. Obama will hit the Late Night TV circuit to tout his success, we’ll all laugh about it, and then go on our merry way. Putin will be left embarrassed and laying in the fetal position sucking his thumb. At least that’s the plan.
But two can play at that game and China, which has stood by Russia’s show of force in Europe since the get-go, has now upped the ante.
Why would the United States run the risk of siding with anti-Semitic, neo-Nazis in Ukraine?
One of the keys may be found by looking back at Zbigniew Brzezinski’s 1997 book, The Grand Chessboard in which he wrote, “Ukraine, a new and important space on the Eurasian chessboard, is a geopolitical pivot because its very existence as an independent country helps to transform Russia. Without Ukraine, Russia ceases to be a Eurasian empire.”
“However, if Moscow regains control over Ukraine, with its 52 million people and major resources as well as access to the Black Sea, Russia automatically again regains the wherewithal to become a powerful imperial state, spanning Europe and Asia.”
The former national security advisor to Jimmy Carter from 1977 to 1981 and top foreign policy advisor to Barack Obama, Brzezinski wrote that US policy should be “unapologetic” in perpetuating “America’s own dominant position for at least a generation and preferably longer still.”
Brzezinski delved into the importance of little known Ukraine by explaining in his 1997 book, “Geopolitical pivots are the states whose importance is derived not from their power and motivation but rather from their sensitive location… which in some cases gives them a special role in either defining access to important areas or in denying resources to a significant player.”
“Ukraine, Azerbaijan, South Korea, Turkey and Iran play the role of critically important geopolitical pivots,” he wrote in The Grand Chessboard, a book viewed by many as a blueprint for US world domination.

The Central Bank is launching a major national campaign to persuade consumers and businesses to stop using cash and cheques in favour of online transactions.
Dame Street mandarins calculate that it would save the Irish economy €1bn a year to increase the use of electronic payments with debit cards, smartphones and online transfers and is tendering for ad agencies to power a major marketing drive with a budget of up to €1m.
The State itself is setting an example – it is one of the heaviest users of cheques, but from September government departments and local authorities will no longer use them.
Irish people use cash and cheques to a much greater extent than other European countries and are the second biggest users of cheques in the EU. The value of withdrawals from ATMs is 66 per cent higher here than the EU average. Irish businesses are heavy users of cheques with over 50 per cent of those written made payable to businesses. The campaign aims to win the “hearts and minds” of consumers and merchants and change the behaviours of both consumers and businesses, the tender document says. It’s a major advertising spend in the current climate, where a big-promotion budget spend is considered to be in the region of €500,000 outside of the big global blue-chips.
While the fight over the Keystone XL pipeline and the Alberta tar sands has galvanized the environmental movement, far less attention has been paid to a related story here in the West. The state of Utah has begun making preparations for its own major tar sands and oil shale extraction projects. According to one U.S. government report, land in the region could hold up to three trillion barrels of oil — that’s more recoverable oil than has been used so far in human history. Critics say Utah is sitting on a tar sands carbon bomb. The Utah Water Quality Board has recently begun giving out permits for companies to extract from the state’s tar sands reserves. We speak to Taylor McKinnon, energy director of the Grand Canyon Trust.
In every vaccine study performed in this way by the vaccine manufacturers, they have come to conclude, through their statistical analyses, that the symptoms reported in the study group after vaccination are no higher in incidence than the rate at which these symptoms would occur in the general population. Therefore, they conclude, the onset of these symptoms in the vaccinated study group is not necessarily due to an adverse reaction to the vaccination(s) being studied. In other words, the symptoms in the vaccinated group were most likely to have occurred by chance, unrelated to the effects of the vaccines.
The next step in the process is to then conclude that the vaccine(s) being studied is(are) safe.
HERE’S THE PROBLEM: THEY ARE COMPARING APPLES WITH APPLES
The vaccine manufacturers are using background data from the general population –(emphasis added)
In this type of study design, the investigators are studying a group of vaccinated people and comparing the data to a background population of people just like them, who are also vaccinated.
We can’t conclude anything about the vaccinated population in this type of study design because the data are being compared to themselves, and not to a set of data from a proper unvaccinated control group. Yet, this is the main type of study design that is used to evaluate vaccine safety. (emphasis added)

One of the original NSA whistleblowers, Thomas Drake, revealed his insider knowledge of government surveillance of U.S. citizens to Baltimore Sun reporter Siobhan Gorman in 2005. His eventual revelations about the subversion of the U.S. Constitution highlighted a $1.2 billion program called “Trailblazer” which Drake submitted was a program of “fraud, waste, and abuse.” He was subsequently charged under The Espionage Act and was facing 35 years in prison. Drake’s defense team actually hired James Bamford, author of The Puzzle Palace and Body of Secrets, as an expert witness. Bamford had lifted the veil in the late ’90s about a massive spying structure that far surpasses the capabilities of the CIA. The case for 10 felony charges against Drake could not stand up, and he reached a misdemeanor plea deal.
Drake was the first to come forward under a new climate of aggressive formal indictment for whistleblowers that equates their truth-telling with real espionage such as selling state secrets.
March 15th, 2014 It sounds a lot like U.S. politics: “A world where you think you are making choices, but in reality, your options are narrowed and refined until you are left with merely the illusion of control.”
Via: Scientific American:
Imagine an Internet where unseen hands curate your entire experience. Where third parties predetermine the news, products and prices you see—even the people you meet. A world where you think you are making choices, but in reality, your options are narrowed and refined until you are left with merely the illusion of control.
This is not far from what is happening today. Thanks to technology that enables Google, Facebook and others to gather information about us and use it to tailor the user experience to our own personal tastes, habits and income, the Internet has become a different place for the rich and for the poor. Most of us have become unwitting actors in an unfolding drama about the tale of two Internets. There is yours and mine, theirs and ours.
