“To see a world in a grain of sand and heaven in a wild flower Hold infinity in the palms of your hand and eternity in an hour.” – William Blake
This incredible technology was widespread in antiquity and evidence of it can be found in all corners of the world. Prehistoric builders used stones, the toughest surfacing material found on Earth to create perfectly round holes.
This impressive cutting-holes-in-stone technique reveals our ancestors were familiar with an extremely advanced technology we have long been unable to use.
Large-sized holes found in ancient stone demanded engineering skills and proper cutting equipment.
The hardness of stone did not limit the ingeniousness of the prehistoric builders!
For example, the ancient builders used a tube drill to hollow out the sarcophagus in the King’s chamber of the Great Pyramid.
The history of our planet is far more complex than most people would dare to imagine. According to the commonly accepted version of history that is taught in high schools and colleges all over the United States, ancient man was a very simple creature with extremely limited knowledge. Unfortunately for those that promote this flawed version of history, archaeologists keep digging up stuff that directly contradicts it.
The truth is that there is a tremendous amount of evidence of great intellectual achievement in the ancient world. For example, just consider the Great Pyramid of Giza. It is a true technological marvel. It is such a massive structure built with such extraordinary precision that modern technology is only just now starting to catch up with it.
We think that we could possibly build a similar structure today if we wanted to, but modern man has never actually constructed anything like it. And as you will see below, the Great Pyramid of Giza is far from the only example of advanced technology in the ancient world that we find in Egypt
Dmitry Orlov is a Russian blogger who writes about the parallel between the U.S and the USSR. Orlov lived through the financial collapse of the Soviet Union in the early 1990’s, and he thinks the U.S. is on the same trajectory. Orlov contends, “The trajectory is defined by this sort of incompetent militarism where more and more money results in bigger and bigger military fiascos around the world and less and less of actual foreign policy that can be pursued or articulated. There are massive levels of corruption. The amount of money that is being stolen by the U.S. Government and its various appropriations processes is now in the trillions of dollars a year. Runaway debt, the United States now has a level of debt that is un-repayable. All we’re waiting for is interest rates to go across the magic threshold of 3% and the entire budget of the country explodes. There are also all types of other tendencies that point in the direction of collapse and systemic failure at all levels.”
So, how close are we to collapse or system failure? Orlov contends, “I am pretty sure that anyone who makes a prediction when the collapse will happen is wrong. Nobody can say when it will happen. It’s the same as saying a bridge that is structurally deficient; you don’t know when a truck is going to fall through into the river below. . . . You can be chronically sick for a long time, and then one day, you go into a coma or your heart stops. You cannot predict what day that will happen. Orlov does say, “The United States right now, from my point of view and the point of view from observers from around the world, is on suicide watch. It’s a country that is going to self-destruct at some point in the near future.”
On the Ukraine crisis, Orlov thinks, “The Crimea referendum was the first legal way to find out what the people wanted to do. The turnout was remarkable, and they voted overwhelmingly to rejoin Russia, to become part of Russia once again. The interesting thing here is it was not just the Russians that voted to join Russia but the Ukrainians in Crimea, which makes a sizable part of the population voted to join Russia. . . Ukraine is composed of sort of a no man’s land in the West and then Russian territories in the East. . . . If that trend holds, you are basically left with this insolvent nugget of nothingness, and it will be up to the international community to decide what to do with these people. They are right now marching around Kiev with baseball bats and going into government offices and beating up members of local government and installing their own members. They are basically running amok.
The Russians pulled their Treasury bonds out of New York. And Russian corporations are pulling their money out of US banks. These are key signs that the dollar and the current US puppet government could collapse long before the 2016 elections. The dollar could never survive the sanctions Obama and Kerry are threatening. If we are lucky, President Putin of Russia and President XI Jinping of China, are too busy laughing at John Kerry to pay attention. It is not in China’s interest to force America into bankruptcy before China has squeezed every last gold bar out of US and London vaults. Their goal is to replace the dollar as the world’s reserve currency with a gold backed yuan.
America is on the verge of collapse. The occupying Power of the Bankers has bled us dry with their wars and their Ponzi schemes. They have stolen tens of trillions of dollars from our pensions and savings and sent it overseas. The Bankers are financially prepared if the dollar is collapsed when their puppet President imposes sanctions on Russia or makes some other strategic blunder in June of 2014 or maybe March 2015.
The dollar might survive past April of this year. But it might not. The dollar might even last a few months. But I don’t see how this precarious Dollar Bubble could possibly last until the next President takes office in January of 2017.
I have written of the clash between the Russo-Chinese alliance and the New World Order. But I do acknowledge that the West’s 30 families like the Rothschilds have extensive holdings inside Russia and China.
While Europe is furiously scrambling to find alternative sources of energy should Gazprom pull the plug on natgas exports to Germany and Europe (the imminent surge in Ukraine gas prices by 40% is probably the best indication of what the outcome would be), Russia is preparing the announcement of the “Holy Grail” energy deal with none other than China, a move which would send geopolitical shockwaves around the world and bind the two nations in a commodity-backed axis.
Room must be made for this global supplier in an energy-glutted world. Russia’s gas sales to Europe need to be “undercut,” as the Times puts it. Sanctions can reshape the global markets to the advantage of the new energy superpower – war by other means. Corporate media mask the historical moment with juvenile jibes at Putin, as Washington prepares to subdue the planet with gushing oil and burning water.
I live in Northern CA and our ranch is 3 miles out a dirt road. When I get on the 101 freeway to see family down south my car is dirty. I have now been pulled over 4 times in two years because I am being profiled by cops on the freeway looking for drugs, terrorists, etc.
The cops are Extremely PARANOID and accusatory. Two days ago I was pulled over by ununiformed cops who assumed I was guilty of something. I recorded our conversation which got me detained by them as they stripped search my mini-van. Three other cops showed up. After 45 minutes they issued me a ‘fix it’ ticket for a missing front license plate .
I exercised my rights to deny consent to a search, but they searched anyway. I told them I wanted a lawyer and refused to speak, which they then kept asking me if i something to hide, which I did not. They threatened to arrest me for standing up to for my rights and finally they asked if I was a lawyer, which I said was none of their damn business.
Question’s To Always Ask Police Before Answering Their’s!
1) Am I legally obligated?
2) Am I being detained?
3) Am I free to go?
Forces Police to make a snap judgement call. Otherwise its considered an “Illegal Detention” That being said, do not try this unless you REALLY know the law (in your STATE) for example, a vehicle stop in California, you must produce ID, however on foot you do not. Other States have different laws. NEVER show any signs of hostility or anger. Be polite and do as instructed, letting them know that by following their commands your doing it against your free will. Do not argue that you have done nothing wrong, unfortunately its not your opinion that matters. Asking what you have done wrong is OK. Know when, what and how to say and respond to these scenarios. If one choses to express his or her rights and if done correctly (you still might wind up going to jail for a few hours, but they will let you go and drop all charges and you can OWN them) everything that they find (NOT IN PLAIN SIGHT) will be dismissed in court. In Police Jargon it is called “Fruits of the Poisonous Tree” Furthermore, the Officer AND OR his DEPT can be held civilly if not criminally liable.

A slew of multibillion-dollar U.S. coastal projects compete to ship super-chilled LNG to Asia and Europe
North America’s natural gas boom is now so big that the industry and its supporters believe it should not be contained to just one continent.
They argue this new bounty should be shared—especially with hungry markets in Asia and Europe willing to pay a high price for the fuel. But long-distance transport of natural gas is one of the world’s most expensive engineering feats, and it will require government approvals, community support, and billions of dollars in capital to take North American gas overseas. (See related quiz: “What You Don’t Know About Natural Gas.”)
Despite the challenges, proposals are now moving forward to make the Chesapeake Bay waterfront community of Cove Point, Maryland, into a global gateway for Pennsylvania shale gas, and to turn the remote British Columbia coastal village of Kitimat into an international energy hub.
Conservation group Oceana recently issued a report that named nine fisheries responsible for more than half of the U.S. bycatch. Bycatch is the wasted edible fish and drowned animals thrown back into the sea by fishing crews. Oceana claimed that 17-22 percent of the U.S.’s fishing fleets’ catch may be thrown away, totaling up to 2 billion tons per year.
“Anything can be bycatch,” said Dominique Cano-Stocco, campaign director at Oceana in a press release. “Whether it’s the thousands of sea turtles that are caught to bring you shrimp or the millions of pounds of cod and halibut that are thrown overboard after fishermen have reached their quota, bycatch is a waste of our ocean’s resources. Bycatch also represents a real economic loss when one fisherman trashes another fisherman’s catch.”

In 2009, Ken Shackel, a tree crop expert at the University of California-Davis, observed several dozen unirrigated almond trees in dry soil for a year. The trees didn’t die, but their yield was cut in half. The next year was even worse: Despite receiving normal water, the trees’ yield was 90 percent below normal. It wasn’t until the year after that their yields were up to normal again.
“However bad this year, it will be worse next,” Shackel says of California’s tree farmers today. “Really bad this year means really, really bad next year.”
The most vulnerable crops, says Shackel, are probably stone fruits like plums, cherries, peaches, and apricots, which are adapted to wetter climates.
California’s ranchers are also feeling the drought. Less water means less grass for beef and dairy cows to graze, forcing ranchers either to cull their herds or sell cattle in fire sales. One auctioneer on the Central Coast told the Associated Press he was selling up to 1,000 cattle per week, up to 10 times the normal rate.
Sell Your Home Now if You Want Out. When out of country investors and hedge funds decide to stop buying AND as the Fed has begun to stop funding $80 billion/month of mortgage purchases, the bottom will fall out of housing in a heartbeat well below 2008 levels.
But the National Association of Realtors has, for the first time ever, indicated that there is another key challenge facing home buyers.
Student debt appears to be a factor in the weak level of first-time buyers.
“The biggest problems for first-time buyers are tight credit and limited inventory in the lower price ranges,” he said. “However, 20 percent of buyers under the age of 33, the prime group of first-time buyers, delayed their purchase because of outstanding debt. In our recent consumer survey, 56 percent of younger buyers who took longer to save for a downpayment identified student debt as the biggest obstacle.”
Brown notes the survey results are for recent homebuyers. “It’s clear there are other people who would like to buy a home that are not in the market because of debt issues, so we can expect a lingering impact of delayed home buying,” Brown added.
In short, we’re broke as a nation and we’re broke as individuals.
Dear Queen Michelle, just put her enormous tab on all our children’s accounts!
Michelle Obama, her two kids, her mother, and numerous aides will enjoy a taxpayer-funded trip to China from March 19 to March 26. White House officials refuse to tell U.S. taxpayers how much they will shell out for the trip, likely due to inevitable media scrutiny.
Michelle Obama’s top aide, Tina Tchen, will be joining on the trip. She said, ”We are not discussing or disclosing information regarding the details of the logistics of the trip.”
Still, the aide did not try to conceal her excitement. She said, “I think we are all, here in the First Lady’s office, quite excited about the upcoming trip… I think the First Lady is very much looking forward to it.”
