“The EPA needed to come up with 42,000 acres in the area to ‘protect’ the kangaroo rats,” Johnson said. “They intimated property owners into giving up their land.”
Duncan Hunter, a Republican Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from California from 1981 to 2009, has known Johnson since the 1970′s.
“There’s a common thread between Johnson’s situation and the Bundys’ situation,” Hunter told Breitbart News. “The heavy hand of government has played in both of those cases.”
The land of over 15,000 property owners in Johnson’s county was ultimately bought off by the Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP), an entity comprised of state and federal government agencies. The MSHCP told land owners that for environmental reasons, their property could not be developed, split, or farmed.
“They devalued properties,” Johnson said. “The government told property owners that selling to the state would be voluntary. They said, ‘If you don’t sell to us, you won’t be able to sell it to anyone.’ The land became worthless and devalued since you can’t farm it or build on it.”
Hunter argued that the federal Endangered Species Act allows counties to bully residents into giving up their properties.
“If the government says you can’t use your property for anything, they’ve essentially taken your property from you,” he said. “Essentially, you’re not a real property owner. Then the government has the best of all worlds–they paralyze your use of the property but they still demand property tax from you.”

(One of humanities greatest creations to allow us to see ourselves in the Whole. After viewing these amazing pictures one can’t help but understand how not alone we are.)
Twenty-four years and two days ago, on a Tuesday morning, the space shuttle Discovery hitched a ride to low Earth orbit from Cape Canaveral, Florida. Aboard the shuttle? NASA’s newest eye in the sky, the Hubble Space Telescope, an instrument capable of peering deep into the cosmos and capturing the universe’s inhabitants in exquisite detail. It had taken decades of design and planning to get the telescope ready for work. The next day, on April 25, astronauts delivered the telescope to space.
Then, scientists eagerly waited for Hubble to start revealing cosmic secrets.
We all know what happened next. A flaw in the telescope’s primary mirror meant the images weren’t sharp. Observing incredibly faint objects, such as very distant galaxies, wasn’t possible. It would be three years before the first of five servicing missions let astronauts correct the defect and upgrade Hubble’s vision to what it should have been.
Since then, though, the Hubble space telescope has continually delighted Earthlings with its breathtaking views of stars, galaxies, and our planetary neighbors. Its impact on science has been no less important. Among other discoveries, Hubble helped scientists determine that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate. This discovery, which happened in the late 1990s, is something we still can’t fully explain.
Every day, tales of life and death in the universe are told through faraway supernovas, galactic collisions and clusters, and violent stellar nurseries. These stories are often accompanied by profoundly beautiful images. Some of these, like the million-second-long exposure that produced the Hubble Ultra-Deep Field, need to be viewed full-size for the appropriate amounts of cosmic oomph. Others, like the Pillars of Creation, have become extremely well-known — looking at these photos can be like seeing the smiling face of an old friend.
Here, in honor of Hubble’s 24th launchiversary, are 25 images that might be slightly less familiar…and I’ve added one to grow on, just for good measure.
In cultures all over the world, there are ancient stories about beautiful, prosperous cities that became submerged in the ocean and were never seen again. The most famous of these is the story of Atlantis, but there are many others.
So could it be possible that some of these cities actually exist? In recent years, modern technology has allowed humanity to investigate the ocean floor like never before. As we have done so, we have made some incredible discoveries. You are about to see some amazing mysterious structures that have been found on the bottom of the ocean floor all over the world. Could these mysterious structures actually be evidence of very advanced ancient civilizations? As we learn about these ancient civilizations, will this knowledge turn the conventional version of human history that we all learned in school upside down?
We live at a time when mind blowing discoveries are being made at a pace never seen before. Just last month, I wrote about the megalithic ruins that have just been discovered in Russia that contain the largest blocks of stone ever found (even bigger than Baalbek).
Nobody can explain where those stones came from, who lived there, or how ancient humans could cut and move such massive blocks.
Well, similar things could be said about many of these mysterious structures on the bottom of the ocean floor…

Medical marijuana is becoming mainstream: 21 states and the District of Columbia allow it. But until Monday, little was known about whether it can effectively treat neurological disorders.
Sixty-nine-year-old Gloria Gates has multiple sclerosis. She can no longer walk and is often in severe pain.
“One thing that is just intolerable for me are these excruciating leg cramps,” she says.
Powerful muscle relaxants didn’t help. She now has a medical marijuana permit and uses an extract specifically made for her.
“I tried it as a last resort, and it’s been an absolute blessing for me,” she says.
On Monday, for the first time, the American Academy of Neurology said medical marijuana is an effective treatment for some symptoms of multiple sclerosis. It concluded spasm, muscle tightness and pain can all be helped.
But that’s when the drug is given as an oral spray or pill. There’s not enough evidence to determine if smoking marijuana was equally effective, says lead authority
(Breitbart) – Americans have become increasingly concerned about the federal government’s seizure of privately-held lands and property, especially after the Cliven Bundy incident in Nevada. Now another land owner, Bill Johnson of Temecula, California, claims his property at Vail Lake, the largest privately-owned lake in California, is being threatened by the county, state, and federal governments.
Johnson purchased 11,000 acres of land in Riverside County over 17 years ago, including Vail Lake, encompassing over 1,000 square surface acres of water. Now Johnson claims various levels of government are trying to seize the property, using intimidation under the guise of environmental concerns.
“The EPA needed to come up with 42,000 acres in the area to ‘protect’ the kangaroo rats,” Johnson said. “They intimated property owners into giving up their land.”Duncan Hunter, a Republican Member of the U.S. House of Representatives from California from 1981 to 2009, has known Johnson since the 1970′s. “There’s a common thread between Johnson’s situation and the Bundys’ situation,” Hunter told Breitbart News. “The heavy hand of government has played in both of those cases.”
The land of over 15,000 property owners in Johnson’s county was ultimately bought off by the Multi-Species Habitat Conservation Plan (MSHCP), an entity comprised of state and federal government agencies. The MSHCP told land owners that for environmental reasons, their property could not be developed, split, or farmed. “They devalued properties,” Johnson said. “The government told property owners that selling to the state would be voluntary. They said, ‘If you don’t sell to us, you won’t be able to sell it to anyone.’ The land became worthless and devalued since you can’t farm it or build on it.”

New medical microchips to be implanted by 2017, delivering drugs, routine birth control through wireless communications
NaturalNews) The future of prescription drugging and birth control lies in a microchip.
Right now, chips with drug reservoirs can be implanted directly under the skin, delivering doses of pharmaceuticals or birth control hormones at the same time each day. The implanted chip is designed to be remote-controlled and governed by “medical professionals.”
Essentially, chipped individuals won’t be able to wean themselves off of side-effect-ridden drugs. The chip can be programmed to release drugs, day after day, year after year, at a “professional’s” directive.
New microchip controls fertility through wireless communications
The micro-reservoir technology, first developed at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in the 1990s, involves an implantable chip designed to release drugs into the body by a wireless signal. This technology, first pioneered by Robert Langer, Michael Cima, and John Santini, now powers a new company called microChip.
On their site, the company states that they are ready to safely incorporate “long-term implantable drug delivery technologies with wireless communications.”
Their first microchip experiment is projected to hit the medical field in 2017 and will offer contraceptive services. The new chip is to be implanted just under the skin by local anesthesia. Once inside, the reservoirs can begin delivering hormones progestin and estrogen as a birth control method.
According to Obamacare, businesses are required by law to offer contraceptive services like this chip. Theoretically, the American people have been ordered to chip one another, through a required tax that is used to invest in controlling everyone’s fertility and liberty.

USA Today1 recently ran an editorial under the headline, “Vaccine opt-outs put public health at risk” and called for elimination of personal belief exemptions in state public health laws, including those that require children to get dozens of doses of up to 15 vaccines in order to attend daycare and school.
“When vaccination rates are very high, as they still are in the nation as a whole, everyone is protected. Diseases such as polio, smallpox and measles are wiped out,” the editorial claims.
“This ‘herd immunity’ protects the most vulnerable, including those who can’t be vaccinated for medical reasons, infants too young to get vaccinated and people on whom the vaccine doesn’t work.
But herd immunity works only when nearly the whole herd joins in. When some refuse vaccinations and seek a free ride, immunity breaks down and everyone is more vulnerable.”
Here’s the entire list of the Dirty Dozen, the 12 conventionally grown fruits and vegetables found to have the highest pesticide load.

Five crucial skills to protect your health in a world overrun by toxic chemicals, dangerous drugs and medical propaganda
Support the Troops?!? Where is the outrage?
WASHINGTON — A Pentagon study released Thursday showed a sharp increase last year in reports of rapes and sexual assault — they were up by 50 percent — but the study immediately came under fire for what critics said were significant limitations.
White House and Defense Department officials characterized the much-anticipated study as a welcome sign that victims are more comfortable reporting assaults and that victims perceive the Pentagon to be taking the problem seriously. But critics of the study said there was no way to know if the increase in reporting meant that there were more sexual assaults over all in 2013. Unlike in previous years, the study did not estimate how many sexual assaults took place over all in 2013. In 2012, a confidential Pentagon survey estimated that 26,000 men and women were sexually assaulted. Of those, 3,374 cases were reported.
IG: Agency didn’t report polygraph admissions of child molestations
2014-04-22, Washington Post blog
Posted: 2014-04-29 11:31:51
The federal government’s spy-satellite agency failed to alert authorities after some of its employees and contractors admitted during polygraph tests to crimes including child molestation and lying on security-clearance questionnaires, according to a watchdog. The intelligence community’s inspector general released two reports … saying the National Reconnaissance Office did not refer some of the cases because of confusion about reporting expectations and requirements. According to one of the reports, an Air Force lieutenant colonel admitted during a 2010 lie-detector test to touching a child in a sexual way and downloading child pornography on his work computer. The NRO only reported that case to the Air Force division that oversees security clearances instead of the Justice Department or the Air Force’s special-investigations office, the inspector general said. The NRO is not legally required to report certain state crimes such as child molestation. Thirty individuals who took NRO lie-detector tests from 2009 through 2012 admitted to child abuse or using child pornography, according to the report. The NRO failed to report three of those cases. Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), who requested the review after a McClatchy news investigation raised concerns about the matter in 2012, said the NRO showed a “complete lack of common sense in failing to require reporting of serious state crimes of this sort.”
Note: The NRO is the agency that was running a drill on the morning of 9/11 of an airplane crashing into one of its Washington, DC buildings, as reported in this USA Today article. It has also allegedly been involved in the UFO cover-up, as reported in this testimony.
Even those readers from around the world may have noticed that Britain has been rocked by the paedophile revelations regarding Jimmy Savile, the former disc jockey and procurer of children for the rich and famous – and what has followed in relation to Lord McAlpine, the former treasurer of the Conservative or ‘Tory’ Party at the time of Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
There is information coming from all directions and it can be very confusing for those who have not followed this unfolding story stage by stage. I have been on this case since the 1990s and I’ll put the pieces together to make sense of it.
This is not just a story about Britain, either, because the same networks of paedophilia and Satanism covertly manipulate the political system all over the world and most certainly in places like North America. The Bush family are up to their necks in it.
What even many more open-minded people can’t grasp is the almost unimaginable scale of child abuse, murder and human sacrifice worldwide and how it is the very cement that holds the global Establishment together, locally, nationally and internationally.
The former Prime Minister is under increasing pressure to say what exactly he knew about allegations of abuse at a London children’s home
Pressure mounted on Tony Blair tonight to answer questions over the Mirror’s revelations that a child sex abuse probe was axed after a minister in his government was named as a suspect.
MPs joined forces with a victim of abuse to call on the former Prime Minister to reveal if he knew about the alleged cover up or of any allegations against the politician.
The demands followed our story that an ex-social services boss told police in 1998 the Blair minister made evening visits to a children’s home in Lambeth, south London, run by paedophile Michael John Carroll in the 1980s.
A spokesman for Mr Blair said yesterday that he would not comment.
The Metropolitan Police continued to remain silent about their review into the cover up claims which they launched over a year ago.
John Paul’s Legacy Stained by Sex Abuse Scandal
2014-04-21, ABC News/Associated Press
Posted: 2014-04-29 11:45:16
The sexual abuse scandal that festered under [Pope John Paul’s] watch remains a stain on his legacy. Pope Francis has inherited John Paul’s most notorious failure on the sex abuse front — the Legion of Christ order, which John Paul and his top advisers held up as a model. The Legion admitted that its late founder sexually abused his seminarians and fathered three children. Yet the Legion’s 2009 admission about the Rev. Marcial Maciel’s double life was by no means news to the Vatican. Documents from the archives of the Vatican’s then-Sacred Congregation for Religious show how a succession of papacies … simply turned a blind eye to credible reports that Maciel was a con artist, drug addict, pedophile and religious fraud. The documents show the Holy See was well aware of Maciel’s drug abuse, sexual abuse and financial improprieties as early as 1956, when it ordered an initial investigation and suspended him for two years to kick a morphine habit. Maciel’s fraud, one of the greatest scandals of the 20th-century Catholic Church, raises uncomfortable questions for today’s Vatican about how so many people could have been duped for so long. [This] brings into question how the church’s own structure, values and priorities enabled a cult-like order to grow from within and how far accountability for all the harm done should go. It begs the question of whether the order has really been purged of the abuses that allowed generations of priests to subject themselves to blind obedience to a false prophet.
Note: It is all too clear that a succession of popes and cardinals of the Catholic church were well aware of these severe child sex abuse scandals for decades, yet took no serious steps to stop the harm being inflicted on innocent children. To learn how child sex-abuse rings lead to top levels of both political and religious leadership around the world, watch the powerful Discovery Channel documentary “Conspiracy of Silence” at this link and read the astounding news reports available here
Many presume the March Against Monsanto is solely a protest about GMO and Monsanto’s takeover of the food supply. The food supply does in fact play a big role in the global protests, but there are many insidious tentacles to the biotech titan. MAM ambitiously strives to expose the deep corruption and connect the dots. From Blackwater to Agent Orange, Monsanto has a hand in it all. To protest GMOs as the only wrong of Monsanto is to simply shake the leaves of the tree. March Against Monsanto seeks to obliterate the root.
Blackwater and Monsanto
Blackwater became notorious during the Iraq war for its mercenaries’ violence against Iraqi civilians and the entity’s unaccountability to local or military law. Blackwater’s most infamous incident occured on Sept. 16, 2007 in Baghdad’s Nisour Square, a high population area with many pedestrians and motorists, when Blackwater personnel escorting a supply convoy opened fire and fatally shot at least 17 civilians and wounded at least 20 others. The company claims its employees did nothing wrong.
Obama Fails to Seal Deal on Secretive TPP Trade Pact in Japan
President Obama has left Japan without sealing a deal on the Trans-Pacific Partnership, a secretive pact among Pacific Rim countries to establish a free-trade zone encompassing nearly 40 percent of the global economy. The deal has faced mass protest in Japan by farmers and others who say it will cause large-scale poverty and displacement like what happened in Mexico under the North American Free Trade Agreement. Obama said a deal could still be reached if Japan further opens its economy to U.S. products. Obama continues his Asia tour in South Korea today.
War Criminal Madeleine Albright is an ‘Example to Follow’ Says US Assistant Secretary of State for Human Rights
‘Malinowki was recently confirmed as the Obama administration’s Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.
He had previously been Washington Director at Human Rights Watch, and before that ‘he served as Senior Director on the National Security Council at the White House, where he oversaw the drafting of President Clinton’s foreign policy speeches and strategic communications efforts around the world. From 1994 to 1998 he was a speechwriter for Secretaries of State Warren Christopher and Madeleine Albright, and member of the Policy Planning Staff at the Department of State’.
Given the guy is quite clearly a card carrying Democrat politician, it is perhaps unsurprising that he used – some might say abused – his role in Human Rights Watch to drum up support for Obama regime policies, including, quite disgracefully, the bombing of Libya and certain forms of rendition.
Malinowski has recently joined Twitter, and is already giving us some examples of his tawdry U.S. exceptionalism, and demonstrating why he should be totally disqualified from ever being employed by an organisation like Human Rights Watch.’

Here’s a new one to add to your list …
Starbucks to buy a share of SodaStream
Written by Alternative Information Center (AIC)
Despite the ongoing campaign to boycott SodaStream due to its production plant in Mishor Adumim Industrial Zone, Starbucks is in advanced talks to acquire 10 percent of SodaStream at a company value of $1.1 billion, reports Globe, the Israeli economic newspaper. The newspaper adds that sources close to the deal say that an official announcement will be made soon.
Globes states that Starbucks’ offer reflects a 30 percent premium on SodaStream market price, with the total value of SodaStream’s issued shares at $850 million.
Market sources have previously believed that SodaStream was seeking a partner, like the partnership between Coca-Cola Company and coffee machine maker Green Mountain Coffee Roasters. The two companies plan to launch a home soda maker machine next year, which would make carbonated beverages from Coca-Cola syrups.
