THIS IS WHAT A GIFT ECONOMY COULD LOOK LIKE. BEAUTIFUL!

Hypatia of Alexandria: The Passing of Philosophy to Religion and the Suppression of Women and Free Thinking to Dogmatic Christianity.

Hypatia was a remarkably gifted woman. Her example demonstrates how all difficulties yield to a strong will. Being a girl, and excluded by the conventions of the time from intellectual pursuits, she could have given many reasons why she should leave philosophy to stronger and freer minds. But she had an all-compelling passion for the life of the mind, which overcame every obstacle that interfered with her purpose.

Rachel Weisz as Hypatia of Alexandria

Rachel Weisz as Hypatia of Alexandria

By all accounts, Hypatia was a beautiful, chaste and brilliant woman. Even her detractors, and later defenders of Cyril, admitted she was a virtuous, wise and noble philosopher. The historian Durant calls her “the most interesting figure in the science of this age” and reports that, “She was so fond of philosophy that she would stop in the streets and explain, to any who asked, difficult points in Plato or Aristotle” (Durant, 122). This, however, is not the only view of the philosopher:

And in those days there appeared in Alexandria a female philosopher, a pagan named Hypatia, and she was devoted at all times to magic, astrolabes and instruments of music, and she beguiled many people through Satanic wiles. And the governor of the city [Orestes] honoured her exceedingly; for she had beguiled him through her magic. And he ceased attending church as had been his custom….And he not only did this, but he drew many believers to her, and he himself received the unbelievers at his house (Charles, LXXXIV. 87-88).

It did not matter that this report of magic and satanic wiles was not true, nor that Orestes was a pagan, not a Christian, nor did it matter the nobility and virtue Hypatia possessed. One day, in 415 CE, “as Hypatia was returning home, she was set upon, [by a Christian mob] torn from her carriage and dragged into a church, where she was stripped naked and battered to death with roofing tiles, ‘and while she was still feebly twitching they beat her eyes out’. They then orgiastically tore her body limb from limb, took her mangled remains out from the church, and burned them” (Deakin in Science/Ockham)

FDA To Ban Organic Farming?

(the Permit and Ban system of government we have today can make anything illegal or cost prohibitive.  Unjust laws need not be obeyed!)

Small and large organic farms alike that sell produce would be impacted by the proposed new rules, which would place burdensome restrictions on everything from compost to livestock to water – so much so that many organic farmers will be forced out of business, said Judith McGeary, executive director of the Farm and Ranch Freedom Alliance, a national organization that supports independent family farmers.

The restrictions placed on compost would be so severe that it amounts to a ban. Organic farms that have livestock in close proximity to their crops also would find it difficult to clear government rules. Additionally, organic farms that use surface water would be forced to test their water regularly.

All total, it could add up to many organic farms simply closing, unable to grow crops naturally or unable to afford the cost.  It’s all part of the FDA’s food safety proposals that impact all farms – not just organic. But it’s the organic farms that will be hit hardest. Congress handed FDA the power in 2010 to regulate farms.

Off The Grid News recently asked McGeary to explain her concerns about the proposed regulations. Following is a transcript:

Off The Grid News: There has been a lot of conflicting data on how the FDA’s proposed food safety rules will impact organic farmers. Could you begin by telling us how it would impact their use of compost?

Judith McGeary: The proposed rules include extremely stringent restrictions on the use of what the FDA calls “biological soil amendments,” which includes compost, compost teas and manure. The regulations cover how the soil amendments can be made, their handling, storage, application and much more.

The single biggest issue is the mandatory waiting period in between application and harvesting the crops. For “untreated” amendments – which include not only manure, but also worm compost, compost teas with any additives, and any compost that doesn’t meet FDA’s specific standards – there is a 9-month waiting period. This makes these valuable soil amendments essentially unusable. Even fully treated compost would require a 45-day waiting period, limiting its usefulness.

These waiting periods are simply not needed. Organic farmers have been using both manure and compost for centuries, with excellent results. The certified organic standards have no waiting period on the use of compost, and only a 90-day to 120-day waiting period on the use of raw manure; and there have been no reported outbreaks from these practices. The FDA’s proposal would destroy one of the core tools for sustainable food production, for no good reason.

Wildfires Made Much Worse Now Due To Man-Made Geo-engineering,Climate Change and Blatant Ignorance, Studies Show

“The fires in California and here in Arizona are a clear example of what happens as the Earth warms, particularly as the West warms, and the warming caused by humans is making fire season longer and longer with each decade,” said University of Arizona geoscientist Jonathan Overpeck. “It’s certainly an example of what we’ll see more of in the future.”

Since 1984, the area burned by the West’s largest wildfires — those of more than 1,000 acres — have increased by about 87,700 acres a year, according to an April study in the journal Geophysical Research Letters. And the areas where fire has been increasing the most are areas where drought has been worsening and “that certainly points to climate being a major contributor,” study main author Philip Dennison of the University of Utah said Friday.

The top five years with the most acres burned have all happened in the last decade, according to federal records. From 2010-2013, about 6.4 million acres a year burned on average; in the 1980s it was 2.9 million acres a year.

“We are going to see increased fire activity all across the West as the climate warms,” Dennison said.

Sperm problems tied to death in near future, study finds

Among men who seek help for infertility, those who are found to have problems with their sperm – such as a low count or poor motility – are more likely to die in the relatively near future than men with normal sperm, according to a new Stanford study.

The findings, published Thursday in the journal Human Reproduction, suggest that the health of a man’s sperm may be tied in important, and hopefully treatable, ways to his overall health. The scientists looked at records of nearly 12,000 men in California and Texas and found that those with sperm defects were twice as likely to die over an eight-year period after being seen for infertility.

The study supports earlier findings that have connected male infertility with long-term health problems such as cancer. But it’s among the first to demonstrate an increased risk of death in relatively young men – all of them were between ages 20 and 50 – over a short period of time.

“We’ve seen other data that there’s a link between fertility and long-term health, but the guys I see in my clinic, they’re pretty young,” said Dr. Michael Eisenberg, director of male reproductive medicine and surgery at Stanford University and lead author of the paper.

“The endpoint, death, usually happens much later in life,” Eisenberg said. “It’s important to identify this group that’s at risk and hopefully prevent these deaths moving forward.”

In Eisenberg’s study, men who had two or more sperm abnormalities – including low semen volume, low sperm concentration, poor sperm motility and low sperm count – were 2.3 times more likely to die over the study period than men with no abnormalities.

Widepread Chemicals Affecting Human Sperm, Infertility

  New study finds “direct link between exposure to endocrine disrupting chemicals from industrial products and adverse effects on human sperm function.”

by Andrea Germanos

 

New research has linked hormone-altering chemicals found in everyday products including soap, sunscreen and toys to male infertility.

A team of German and Danish researchers studied nearly 100 of these chemicals, called endocrine-disruptors, and found that about one-third of them interfered with human sperm function in ways that could impair egg fertilization.

These chemicals include the antibacterial Triclosan, used in some toothpastes and other personal care products, and 4-methylbenzylidene camphor (4-MBC), found in some sunscreens and deodorants.

Endocrine disruptors have previously been linkedto a range of other health problems including cancer, neurodevelopmental delays and other altered reproductive functions.

In 2001 scientists at the Epicyte bio-lab in San Diego created the ultimate GM crop—’contraceptive corn’—after researchers discovered a rare class of human antibodies that attack sperm. By isolating the genes that regulate the manufacture of these antibodies, and by putting them in corn plants, the company has created tiny horticultural factories that make contraceptives.Announcing his success at a press conference, the president of Epicyte, Mitch Hein, pointing to his GMO corn plants and announced, “We have a hothouse filled with corn plants that make anti-sperm antibodies.”Shortly after the 2001 Epicyte press release, all discussion of the breakthrough vanished. The company itself was taken over in 2004 by Biolex and nothing more was heard in any media about the development of spermicidal corn.Did it to go underground? Are your taco shells safe? What of your cornmeal or cornflakes? Is this killer cereal already turning up on our breakfast tables..?

Sinister Sites: The Georgia Guidestones

The Georgia Guidestones is a mysterious monument on which are carved ten “commandments” for a “New Age of Reason”. The first commandment? Maintaining the world population under 500 million people. Another sinister fact: the authors of what we now call the American Stonehenge are still a “mystery”… except for those in the know. We will look at the numerous features of this monument, its message calling for a New World Order and explain how it is the work of an occult secret society.

Student Debt Worse At Universities With Highest-Paid Presidents

Student debt and the hiring of relatively low-paid adjunct faculty rather than full-time professors have grown fastest at public universities with the highest-paid presidents, a new report found.

University president pay has risen dramatically in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, according to the report, which focuses on 25 state universities that pay their presidents almost double the national average. Released Sunday by the Institute for Policy Studies (IPS), a progressive Washington D.C.-based think tank, the study is called The One Percent at State U — referring to the financial gains made by executives after the 2008 recession.

Nationwide, between the fall of 2009 and the summer of 2012, average executive compensation at public research universities increased 14 percent to $544,544, according to the study.

But presidents at the 25 universities examined saw their salaries increase almost twice as fast as the national average, to $974,006. Early indications since 2012 suggest this trend will continue to accelerate.

And though student debt is rising across the country, at these 25 universities the report said the level of student debt increased 13 percent faster than the national average from 2006-2012.

Sandy Hook Elementary School: closed in 2008, a stage in 2012

By Jim Fetzer (with Amanda)

“You can fool some of the people all of the time and all of the people some of the time, but you cannot fool all of the people all of the time”–Abraham Lincoln

As Wolfgang Halbig prepares to head to Newton to pursue the truth about Sandy Hook and confront the Newtown School Board with questions, more and more evidence suggests that Sandy Hook Elementary was not even an operating school.

Not only does information about the alleged victims of the shooting–their names, their ages and their sex–not appear in the “State Police Final Report” from Connecticut, but the “autopsy photos” that accompany the report were redacted in their entirety.  Actual proof of real victims is virtually non-existent.

When you combine that with the Clerk of Newtown entering into secret meetings with the state legislature to circumvent the release of their death certificates and those engaged in the destruction of the school building itself being required to agree to life-time “gag orders” about what they did or did not see and the probability we are dealing with a staged event grows larger.

A review of the redacted video coverage from the “Final Report” suggests there was a half-hearted effort to create the appearance of a thorough investigation without the substance, which is what we would expect if the entire exercise were no more than a random compilation of images. Those of the bathrooms may be the most important, since they hint the school was non-ADA compliant, an issue that we pursue below:

Russia Close to $400 Billion Gas Pipeline Deal in Pivot to China

Russia is close to signing a decades-long contract to supply natural gas to China at a price that would value the deal at about $400 billion, according to Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

Medvedev’s boss Vladimir Putin arrives in Shanghai today to try and complete an agreement after more than 10 years of talks. The stumbling block has been price, but with Putin facing trade and financial sanctions from the U.S. and European Union after he annexed Crimea from Ukraine, a deal is seen as probable.

Thailand army criticized for ‘de facto coup’

The Royal Thai Army’s imposition of martial law nationwide on Tuesday drew condemnations from human rights groups and thrust the Southeast Asian kingdom into deeper political uncertainty stemming from months of crippling anti-government protests.

As Thai soldiers took up positions across Bangkok, the leadership of the powerful army, which has staged 11 successful coups since 1932, said the move was not a coup but an effort “to restore peace and order” with supporters and opponents of the government seemingly headed for a showdown within days.

Egypt courts convicts andother 170 in mass trials

(u.s. backed coup back in October 2013 of democratically elected President Morsi begins.  Now nearly a thousand people, with a mock mass trials sentenced to death. Where is the outcry? Where is human rights watch? Where is the “freedom fighters of Amerika”?  Coming home to roost here??..oh, of course not, it could never happen here!?!)

In some cases, the verdicts came after no more than two hearings, drawing criticism from human rights activists and foreign governments as Egypt’s military-backed interim government continues its crackdown on Morsi supporters and his Muslim Brotherhood group.

The Kafr el-Sheikh court convicted 127 people of storming and torching a church, a police station and a sports stadium to avenge the killing of hundreds of Islamists when security forces ended two sit-in protests in Cairo by Morsi supporters in August, according to a statement by the office of Egypt’s top prosecutor.

Agenda 21, getting people out of their owned cars which will be used to jack up insurance rates, accept black boxes in your cars, give discounts to driverless cars and charge pay-by-the mile use of your own cars.

This will get people out of ‘burbs and rural into ‘stack-em and pack-em’ micro apartments in the cities….but where will their food come from??

Cars Could Drive Themselves Sooner than Expected

Cars could be driving themselves down the world’s streets far sooner than expected, thanks to a change in a global treaty backed by European countries.A little-noticed amendment to the United Nations Convention on Road Traffic agreed last month would let drivers take their hands off the wheel of self-driving cars. It was pushed by Germany, Italy and France, whose high-end carmakers believe they are ready to zoom past American tech pioneers and bring the first “autonomous vehicles” to market.

“Today I am only allowed to take my hands off the wheel to a limited extent. Thankfully the Vienna Convention on Road Traffic has been changed,” said Thomas Weber, head of Group research at Daimler and head of development at Mercedes-Benz.

For years, so-called “autonomous vehicles” have been a futuristic dream pioneered by silicon valley companies like Google.

But as the technology becomes more affordable, Europe’s luxury automakers say they are well placed to take advantage of it because of their deeper experience in engineering, manufacturing, marketing and sales. There is no point in waiting while California upstarts catch up.

Army design for the next-generation protective mask

U.S. Army’s Creepy Sci-Fi Helmets Come With Built-In A/C (while children starve in the U.S….)

If the U.S. Army greenlights a radical new helmet design, its soldiers may have a harder time winning hearts and minds overseas. Quite simply, the thing is frightening—think motocross storm trooper.

Functionally, however, the helmet unveiled Tuesday marks a major advance. The same features that make it look so fierce—a full face mask and eye shield—filter out chemical attacks and biological pathogens. The screen over the eyes will populate with real-time data, like a sort of G.I. Google Glass.

The real masterstroke is a lightweight fan that cools the head and runs off batteries attached to a soldier’s hip or back. The next version will “sense,” using body sensors, when the fan needs to turn itself on, according to the Army’s Edgewood Chemical Biological Center.

Hood Disease: Inner City Oakland Youth Suffering From Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder

 

In the inner city, a health problem is making it harder for young people to learn. The Centers for Disease Control said 30 percent of inner city kids suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).

The CDC said these children often live in virtual war zones. Doctors at Harvard said they actually suffer from a more complex form of PTSD that some call “hood disease.”

Unlike soldiers, children in the inner city never leave the combat zone. They often experience trauma, repeatedly.

Alert: imperial psychiatric empire is invading the mind.  Charge anyone with mental illness, through them in jail.

A federal bill, HR 3717 (Helping Families in Mental Health Crisis Act of 2013), is being refined in the hope of gaining big support from both sides of the political aisle.

Rep. Tim Murphy (R-Pa.) is the key point man for the American Psychiatric Association.

This bill is playing off of Aurora, Sandy Hook, Boston, and other recent “mass events.”

The propaganda hook is: catch mental illness early, prevent tragedy.

The strategy is: expand mental health services into every cranny and nook of the society, starting with children.

Translation: diagnose mental disorders and drug patients with toxic compounds.

As I’ve demonstrated in many past articles, none of the 300 officially certified mental disorders has any defining diagnostic test. No blood test, no urine test, no brain scan, no genetic assay.

The names and descriptions of all the disorders are outright frauds, packaged to sell harmful drugs.

But that doesn’t stop the juggernaut.

HR 3717 is designed to do the following, as described in a recent article in Psychiatric News, “Comprehensive Mental Health Bill Introduced in House”:

“Among the bill’s provisions is the creation of a new assistant secretary position in the Department of Health and Human Services to coordinate activities within the agency on prevention and treatment of mental health and substance abuse.”

That means far greater clout for the feds in foisting psychiatric treatment on the public.

“…increase funding for crisis-intervention team training for police officers and firefighters…”

This adds a psychiatric component in instances of “crises,” wherein suspects, witnesses and even government workers will receive “mental health” evals and counseling (and drug prescriptions). It’ll be SOP for anyone within shouting distance of a police raid, for example, to experience a brush with the psychiatric system, whenever possible.

“…permit disclosure of information about individuals with mental illness to caregivers or immediate family members under certain circumstances.”

There goes privacy and confidentiality…one leak and cross-reference after another.

“…$40 million a year for the National Institute of Mental Health to fund the Brain Research through Advancing Innovative Neurotechnologies (BRAIN) Initiative…or other ‘research on the determinants of self- and other-directed violence in mental illness, including studies directed at reducing the risk of self-harm, suicide, and interpersonal violence.’”

More $$ to study how to control the brain. More fraudulent research aimed at blaming “chemical imbalances” as the cause of crime, which again results in more mental-disorder diagnoses and drugging. Keep in mind that increasing numbers of people are being driven over the edge into committing violence, because psychiatric drugs, such as the SSRI antidepressants, are scrambling their neurotransmitters. This is a self-fulfilling prophecy.

“You could take anyone who is experiencing the symptoms of PTSD, and the things we are currently emphasizing in school will fall off their radar. Because frankly it does not matter in our biology if we don’t survive the walk home,” said Jeff Duncan-Andrade, Ph.D. of San Francisco State University.

In Oakland, about two thirds of the murders last year were actually clustered in East Oakland, 59 people killed.

The Rockefeller Family Conspiracy

Back in 1976, Congressman Larry P. McDonald said, “The drive of the Rockefellers and their allies is to create a one-world government combining supercapitalism and Communism underthe same tent, all under their control…. Do I mean conspiracy? Yes I do. I am convinced there is such a plot, international in scope, generations old in planning, and incredibly evil in intent.” He was later killed in a Korean Airlines 747 that was shot down under suspicious circumstances.

The first notable member of the family, William Avery Rockefeller, was a con man, thief and indicted child molester who eventually deserted his wife and six children to marry a twenty year-old (Nelson Rockefeller later did the same abandoning his wife of 31 years for Happy Fitler Murphy). Author William Hoffman tells us that “The thing the children most remembered about their father [William Avery] was the delight he took in getting the better of them in business deals. He would con them out of something they considered important, then lecture them on the necessity of always being alert.”

When John D. founded Standard Oil, it was just one of the 27 other refineries in the Cleveland area, and by no means the biggest. But the ambitious businessman – who once declared that ‘competition is a sin’ – soon devised a plan to take on or destroy his competitors. The simplicity, audacity, and ruthlessness of his scheme is breathtaking. He bribed and coerced the railroads serving the oil producing region to give him a kickback, or rebate, not only on his own shipments, but also on every barrel his competitors sent by rail. The more they shipped, the more he made! Rockefeller’s rebate formula enabled him to reduce his own prices and drive the other oil refineries out of business using their own money!” -Gary Allen, “The Rockefeller File”

Because most individuals are not ruthless, sociopathic control-freaks, they cannot even begin to fathom the dark gulfs that are the souls of the servants of the global elite. The New World Order is a synthesis of the survivors of empires, of super-merchant families, of barbarian kings, of banking families established in the middle-ages, and of the royal families of Europe.


The New World Order is not a ‘conspiracy’ in the
strictest sense of the term – it is an agenda. The agenda is orchestrated by a power elite that thinks it has the divine right to commandeer total control of your life. But who are ‘they’? Who are the ‘power elite’? The UN, the EU, the Council on Foreign Relations, the Bilderberg Group, the Trilateral Commission, the Rockefellers, the Rothschilds, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Club of Rome. The list goes on and there have been many books written that cover the history of these groups and how they connect to each other … The agenda is a worldwide consolidation and centralization of power into the hands of an all-encompassing World Government. This system will evolve from the European Union, (already in place) the American Union, (derived from NAFTA) and the Asian Union. When these three models are in existence, they will be merged together to create the One World Government.” -Paul Joseph Watson, Order Out of Chaos (8-9)
