“Without hope – what’s the alternative to it? It’s despair. And despair means your head in the oven. Hope is what made this country be what it is. It was hope that made the abolitionists fight slavery, you see, against terrible odds…. I picked up that title [of my book] from a Mexican farmworker, her name was Jesse De La Cruz…She said when times are bleak and bewildering we have saying in Spanish…it means ‘hope dies last.’”
Hopium is our new lexicon where individuals and the collective “Hope” someone else will fix it all so they can go on with their lives as they wish. Hope never accomplishes anything without plans to change the status quo and then to take action, whether it be a small step for the individual or a giant step for mankind…and if you are really good at Activism to change what must be changed..
….if you get really good at leadership and rallying against the machine…
you get a bullet through your head…
‘Remote Viewing’ has Basis in Science, Military Intelligence
Remote viewing’ is a technique and skill that is quite interesting. Remote viewing usually refers to the original program sponsored by CIA, DIA and Army intelligence during the 70s, 80s and early 90s as well as offshoots of those techniques that have developed since.
A research outfit called SRI did much of the original work on remote viewing and continues similar research today. Women and men, some military and some civilian, were trained in remote viewing and tasked with operational missions that were important to U.S. national security at the time. The program used a somewhat formal protocol that helped remote viewers perceive things using only their minds.
In 1995, the CIA cancelled the remote viewing program. At least they told the public they did. Many suspect that U.S. Government remote viewing efforts continued.
Remote viewing was used to help our national defense intelligence efforts by gathering information on places, people, things and events of interest. Remote viewers learned to get into a certain state of mind, perceive remotely, then report and draw their findings.
However, the formal and somewhat narrow technique of remote viewing seems to be just a slice of a much broader and deeper situation.
Interestingly, some of the key scientists at SRI were not psychologists but physicists. They found indications in physics research that the Universe and Nature seem to be structured in such a way that phenomena like remote viewing are possible and natural. The physical world we live in and the physics involved simply work in ways that are somewhat surprising to us, such as the way remote viewing seems to operate.
Hunches, intuition, gut feelings all can be similar phenomena. Our unconscious minds are linked to larger things including networks of information, feelings, perceptions and realities.
Undoubtedly, we are connected to the larger Universe and spiritual levels of reality. Remote viewing is another sense that we have, just like sight, hearing, touch, taste, smell.
In psychology, Carl Jung’s “collective unconscious” was an idea that humans can tap into, and are part of, a large consciousness. Our individual consciousness might be part of a larger, common consciousness.
Fortunately, with the raising of human consciousness, there are more open-minded medical doctors and other health professionals who are beginning to use – and benefit from the use of – Medical Intuition! A case in point is the mutually-beneficial relationship of well-known Medical Intuitive, Carolyn Myss and Harvard-trained neurosurgeon and researcher, Dr. Norman Shealy. Almost 20 years ago, Dr. Shealy was introduced to a young woman with a special gift: she could “see” illness in other people with only her intuition to guide her. After extensive testing, he concluded that her ability to diagnose illness – even from remote distances – was 93% accurate. Today Caroline Myss is a legend in the field of intuition and energy healing. Other notable intuitive practitoners who’ve assisted their clients with health issues were the man known as the “Sleeping Prophet”, Edgar Cayce, and Phineas Parkhurst Quimby, who has been acknowledged for his “clairvoyant” faculty.
The importance of the field of medicine cannot be denied, and the services of the many wonderful and dedicated doctors and health-care practitioners have been invaluable to so many people. It is, however, very likely that we would have a much healthier society, if more people would understand their inherent rights as human beings, and utilize their natural gifts in the fields of self-medicine and self-care. Everyone has the ability to be a competent and/or good healing intuitive, however, in a situation where one has not yet tapped into their own gifts, they are missing an important tool in achieving true wellness, if they are NOT using a Medical Intuitive as part of their “healing team“. A good intuitive can get the answers needed so that the client can provide the body with the assistance it needs – it can then do what it innately knows how to do – to heal itself.

If you’re an American around my age (I’m 28), a couple of things are becoming clear.
We’re one of the first generations since the Great Depression that is expected to live a lower quality of life than our parents. Significantly lower. We all got suckered into paying $160,000 we didn’t have for a piece of paper that entitles us to apply for a bunch of entry level jobs that don’t even want us on account of our lack of experience.
Entry level receptionist or social media position. 3-5 years experience required.The US job market is crazier than one of Jigsaw’s rusty machinations. So now there’s a generation of us, walking around in a debt daze, unable to start families “on time” or leave the nest or invest in new businesses—or do any of the things that Americans in their late twenties and early thirties should be up to.
State by state, the nation is beginning to chip away at marijuana prohibition. Especially since Colorado and Washington legalized the herb for recreational purposes last year, whispers of legalization and decriminalization are spreading like wildfire. But cultivation of the plant is still federally illegal, and often as states legalize either medically or recreationally, they find themselves in short supply.
A former Wall Street banker named Derek Peterson is now CEO of a company that could eventually turn the legal medicinal and recreational marijuana shortage into a myth. The company is called Terra Tech Corp, and since its inception in 2010, Peterson has made it his goal to set up farming facilities in various states to grow legal leafy greens like basil and thyme, and gearing up to switch over to cannabis. As soon as each state legalizes, Terra Tech plans to switch to cannabis production, coming out ahead of the curve.
A sustainable, hydroponic farming company, Terra Tech became the first publicly traded company to apply for a license to grow cannabis. Everyone on staff is fully trained to cultivate weed so that as soon as states legalize they can easily shift their facilities over, staff and greenhouses intact.
Signs are increasingly pointing to the formation of an El Niño in the next few months, possibly a very strong one. When combined with the long-term global warming trend, a strong El Niño would mean 2015 is very likely to become the hottest year on record by far.
An El Niño is “characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures in the Equatorial Pacific,” as NOAA explains. That contrasts with the unusually cold temps in the Equatorial Pacific during a La Niña. Both are associated with extreme weather around the globe. But, as the above chart from NASA shows, El Niños are generally the hottest years on record, since the regional warming adds to the underlying global warming trend. La Niña years tend to be below the global warming trend line.
Because 1998 was an unusually strong “super El Niño,” and because we haven’t had an El Niño since 2010, it can appear as if global warming has slowed — if you cherry-pick a relatively recent start year. But in fact several recent studies have confirmed that planetary warming continues apace everywhere you look.
Remember that 2010, a moderate El Niño, is the hottest year on record so far. And 2010 saw a stunning 20 countries set all-time record highs, including “Asia’s hottest reliably measured temperature of all-time, the remarkable 128.3°F (53.5°C) in Pakistan in May 2010.” Meteorologist Dr. Jeff Masters said 2010 was “the planet’s most extraordinary year for extreme weather since reliable global upper-air data began in the late 1940s.”
The minimum-wage occupations that Frey and Osborne think are most vulnerable include, not surprisingly, telemarketers, sales clerks and cashiers. But also included are occupations that employ a large share of the low-wage workforce, such as waiters and waitresses, food-preparation workers and cooks. If the computerization of these low-wage jobs becomes feasible, and if employers find it economical to invest in such labor-saving technology, there will be huge implications for the U.S. labor force.

Former Governor of Michigan and U.S. President, Gerald Ford
“I called Ford, “Henry,” trying to joke with him so he wouldn’t be so brutal but he usually was anyway, despite my attempts at humor. Ford began with me early, as he liked young girls. He was into fantasies and often liked for me to wear an eye mask. We had sex often, especially during the time Reagan was Governor of California. He liked violent sex-tying me up, handcuffs, spankings, slapping, and all that kind of S&M stuff. He enjoyed the whips and chains routine, and liked to tie me up with thick black leather straps. He slapped me frequently. Often after he satisfied himself sexually with me, blood would drip down my legs. It was so painful that I felt like I was not only splitting in my rectum or vagina, but the excruciating pain exploded up into my head and out my arms and fingertips. Gerald Ford required violent sex in order to orgasm. He joked about needing, “the chain gig in order to get off.” His jokes were very crude. He was in politics a long time and often traveled in political circles. He was “one of the good old boys” and had major Mob connections. He wore his own gun in a shoulder holster and was afraid for me to remove it. “I don’t trust you with the gun,” he said and he laughed. He was a short President and pretty hairy. While he was violent sexually he still was not as brutal as Ted Kennedy.
Ford wore nice clothes, silk shorts and good quality suits, and he was very proud of them. For some reason, these mob guys were into expensive, quality clothes. I don’t know why that was, but image was very important to them. There was lots of mob involvement when Nixon was President and Ford was Vice President, and it didn’t stop when Nixon stepped down. Same mob involvement, just a few different players who were close friends of Jerry. Ford had more mob organizations behind him than Nixon did, so he had lots of people to give favors to when he was in the White House. He was very corrupt. He had to be in a wheelchair briefly for something. I don’t know what happened but they managed to keep it hushed up. He had a bandage like he’d been shot or wounded or operated on. I don’t know exactly what happened, but I felt a little safer when he was in the wheelchair. Unfortunately, he wasn’t in it long enough to suit my needs.
Ford didn’t treat me like I was real. He often hurt me and was convinced that I was just a machine built for his pleasure. It was true that I was a non-thinking slave that obeyed every command, but it did register within me when I was abused and treated cruelly.
…..After I had children, Ford teased me that he may have been the father of my child and he would ask me, “How’s junior?” He was responsible for a lot of the mob violence that happened to me during the mid to late 70’s. He always wanted to insure that I was ‘contained,’ so he even had his mob buddies come to my home to rough up my children and me.” Thanks for the Memories
The local Michigan pornography ring was sanctioned by a criminal faction of our government. Government allowed the pornography to be distributed because they were interested in the effects of trauma on the human mind and wanted to locate children such as myself who had been sexually abused prior to the age of five. Child pornography was one means to locate us.
The local Michigan politician who protected this Mafia pornography ring was Gerald Ford — the same Gerald Ford who became President and very much a reason why I ended up in a political realm of the MK Ultra mind control operation. When my father agreed to sell me, Gerald Ford came to our house and explained to my father how to raise me according to government specifications for mind control.…..It was there that I was subjected to the sexual perversions of certain politicians like Gerald Ford. I’m not saying Gerald Ford is a pedophile, a person who just rapes children. Instead, Gerald Ford is what I refer to as “tri-sexual”–he’ll “try” anything with anybody, any age, any time, any where, it doesn’t matter to him, as long as he can be in control. He had a perversion for power.…..It was while I was in Catholic Central that Gerald Ford became President. This devastated me. Not that I could even think about it by that time, because I couldn’t. I could only sense that if Gerald Ford was President, then people everywhere actually condoned child abuse and mind control.
Sex, Lies, and Mind Control by Cathy O’Brien
In what critics are describing as a government land grab, the Environmental Protection Agency proposed a change Tuesday to the Clean Water Act that would give it regulatory authority over temporary wetlands and waterways.
The proposal immediately sparked concerns that the regulatory power could extend into seasonal ponds, streams and ditches, including those on private property.
“The … rule may be one of the most significant private property grabs in U.S. history,” said Louisiana Sen. David Vitter, the top Republican on the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee.
The EPA proposal would apply pollution regulations to the country’s so-called “intermittent and ephemeral streams and wetlands” — which are created during wet seasons, or simply after it rains, but are temporary.
At issue is whether the smaller streams and wetlands are indeed part of the “waters of the United States.”
World Crude Oil Production Without Shale Is Back To 2005 Levels
Unnoticed by the mainstream media, US shale oil covers up a recent decline of crude oil production of 1.5 mb/d in the rest of world (using data up to Oct 2013). This means that without US shale oil the world would be in a deep oil crisis similar to the decline phase 2006/07 when oil prices went up. The decline comes from many countries but is also caused by fights over oil and oil-related issues in Iran, Libya and other countries which can be seen on TV every day
- The charges are related to riots in the city of Minya last year
- The riots took place after security forces cracked down on protesters and a single police officer was killed but tens of protestors were killed by police
- The defendants can appeal their sentences
(CNN) — An Egyptian court sentenced at least 528 supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood to death Monday on charges related to violent riots in the southern Egyptian city of Minya last August, including the murder of a police officer, the country’s official news agency said.
The riots took place after a deadly crackdown by security forces on two large sit-ins in Cairo, where demonstrators were supporting ousted President Mohammed Morsy
..So let me get this straight. The Egyptians have their Arab Spring and kick out the military dictator, Ubarak, who killed and tortured thousands of Egyptians while being backed with the finest U.S. military equipment and billions annually provided by the U.S. taxpayers.
So the people vote in the Muslim Brotherhood in a democratic election that the U.S. okays. Then, the military stages a coup on the democratically elected President and the U.S. cuts a trickle off of the money tree to Egypt, yet says nada about the coup.
Now Egypt is going to mass execute (say Genocide) nearly 600 for the killing of one cop, while another 600 are right behind them set to got to “trial”…and the U.S. says nothing. NOTHING!
So much for the coalition of the willing……U.S. and Brits must go it alone it appears.
“The escalation of hostile language, sanctions and counter-sanctions, and force does not contribute to a sustainable and peaceful solution, according to international law, including the principles and purposes of the United Nations Charter,” foreign ministers of the BRICS countries – Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – said in a statement issued on Monday.
BRICS leaders (from L) Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, China’s President Xi Jinping, S. African President Jacob Zuma, Brazil’s President Dilma Rousseff and Russia’s President Vladimir Putin, pose for a photo in South Africa, on March 27, 2013.
The group agreed that the challenges that exist within the regions of the BRICS countries must be addressed within the framework of the United Nations.
“BRICS countries agreed that the challenges that exist within the regions of the BRICS countries must be addressed within the fold of the United Nations in a calm and level-headed manner,” the statement added.The White House said earlier on Monday that US President Barack Obama and the leaders of Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and Japan decided to end Russia’s role in the G8 over the crisis in Ukraine and the status of Crimea.
Meanwhile, the G7 group of top economic powers has snubbed a planned meeting that Russian President Vladimir Putin was due to host in the Black Sea resort city of Sochi in June.
The G7 said they would hold a meeting in Brussels without Russia instead of the wider G8 summit, and threatened tougher sanctions against Russia.
Russia brushed off the Western threat to expel it from the G8 on the same day. The Autonomous Republic of Crimea declared independence from Ukraine on March 17 and formally applied to become part of Russia following a referendum a day earlier, in which nearly 97 percent of the participants voted in favor of the move.

(Do you think they knew this when they invaded Afghanistan in 2003???)
As American troops prepare to leave Afghanistan, the US has handed over prized mineral data to Kabul, which is hoping it can provide enough security to lure investors to key mineral deposits that could turn the country into the Saudi Arabia of Lithium in the best-case scenario, or another conflict minerals venue like Congo.
Earlier this month, the US Geological Survey handed Kabul highly advanced hyper-spectral imaging of mineral deposits covering about 70% of the countries territory, but security, infrastructure and legislation must be addressed before these deposits can be tapped into.
Joseph Catalino, acting director of the DOD task force, said the Defense Department’s Task Force for Business and Stability Operations (TFBSO) was working with private-sector firms to encourage them to invest in Afghanistan’s mineral and hydrocarbon sectors.
“Big companies, small companies, even really small companies are all asking the same questions — what’s there, where do we look and where do we drill? That’s where this data comes into play,” Catalino was quoted as saying.
Nuke Scare: Obama Warns of ‘Loose Nukes Being Detonated in Manhattan’, Plays War ‘Mind-Games’ with World Leaders
‘With deliberately-placed words, Obama dropped his own ’bomb’ on the press at the Nuclear Security Summit in The Hague, raising the prospect of terrorists detonating nukes in Manhattan.
When asked about his position on Russia and the recent Ukrainian Crisis, Obama answered that Russia’s influence was localized to their region, and doesn’t represent a threat to the United States. He then resurrected the specter of terrorism.
“They don’t pose the number one national security threat to the United States,” Obama said. “I continue to be much more concerned, when it comes to our security, of the prospect of a nuclear weapon going off in Manhattan.”‘

Imagine you could go to Las Vegas, and it didn’t matter how much you bet, you could only lose $100. Wouldn’t you take bigger risks? Of course you would. Unfortunately this is precisely the scenario facing the nuclear industry.
Prime Minister Stephen Harper has proposed a new law to shield nuclear companies from responsibility in the event of an accident. If passed Bill C-22 would cap the liability of reactor operators to $1 billion after a reactor accident.
This is a pittance. It means that the event of Fukushima-scale accident, reactor operators would be responsible for less than 1 per cent of damage they cause. Canadians would cover the rest.
Worse, Bill C-22 would completely absolve companies that design or service Canada’s reactors of responsibility — even if their negligence caused an accident.
The bill tells nuclear companies it’s okay for them to have no skin in the game. If passed, the game will be rigged. Bill C-22 would guarantee nuclear companies always hit the jackpot no matter the risks.
Facebook has agreed to buy Oculus for $2 billion, betting that its virtual reality technology may be a new way for people to communicate, learn or be entertained.
“This is a long-term bet on the future of computing,” said Facebook Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg Tuesday on a call with analysts. “I believe Oculus can be one of the platforms of the future.”
Oculus makes the Oculus Rift, a virtual reality headset that’s received a lot of attention from video game developers, though it has yet to be released for consumers. The headsets cover a user’s eyes and create an immersive world that reacts to turning one’s head or moving back and forth.
Beyond games, Zuckerberg said virtual reality headsets might someday be used to enjoy a courtside seat at a basketball game, study in a classroom, consult with a doctor face-to-face or shop in a virtual store. The technology also has social applications, he said.
“Imagine sharing not just moments with friends online but entire experiences and adventures,” he said.
According to a new study published in the journal General Dentistry infants are at risk of dental fluorosis due to overexposure from fluoride in commercially available infant foods.
The researchers analyzed 360 different samples of 20 different foods ranging from fruits and vegetables, chicken, turkey, beef, and vegetarian dinners. All of the foods tested had detectable amounts of fluoride ranging from .007-4.13 micrograms of fluoride per gram of food. Chicken products had the highest concentrations of fluoride, followed by turkey.
The New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation (NYSCOF) reports that the fluoride levels were due to pesticides, fertilizers, soil, groundwater, and/or fluoridated water. The high levels found in the chicken and turkey can be attributed to “fluoride-saturated bone dust” involved in the process of mechanically separating the meat.
The Warriors Journey
A lull in the battle
Placed silence beneath his feet
The waves on the shore
Speaking softly of no retreat
His gaze caught the feeling
Suddenly he was not alone
Ghostly image before him
Someone he’d never known
A voice of such wisdom
Words from his flaming eyes
I am the warrior inside you
Lives on and never dies
I am here to remind you
Truth has moments of doubt
When the carrier of its word
Is not sure how to carry it out
You are at this moment
Use it as a time to rest
Do not question yourself
Whether you’ve done your best
Pain is found in your wound
And it will surely go away
A scar is there to tell you
You will live to fight another day
This warrior you face inside you
Reach out and grip his hand
Drink deep the feel of your spirit
Waiting for your next command
See the essence of a warrior
Is not of lore or myth
It is only searching
For someone to travel with
You now know the bigger picture
And that is what brought me here
Your spirit heart has opened
Singing the song the enemy fears
You smite him with your open hand
And wave his darkness away
It is not for you to claim a life
For he will die another way
His problem is but a pebble
On this mountain that you climb
He has no spiritual calling
Something evil bought his time
Just a step on a warrior’s journey
Clearing little stones from your path
They are there to cause your stumble
The warrior inside will hold you fast
