I'm just adding this here because I don't want to start a new thread, and you have to go to the link to see the companies, but it's a good list, one that I will probably come back to many times. It's not easy trying to reduce the number of products with GMO ingredients in them, but it never hurts to just start somewhere. Where we spend our money for food will make a difference if enough of us choose to pay more attention and stop buying certain products and choosing others. As always, it about the bottom line, profits (and actually a bit more). I still have a long ways to go myself. I know that GMO's are partly behind the sky rocketing number of people with digestive issues (that, and their not so wonderful Glysophate that is sprayed on most wheat crops today to supposedly help with the ripening off process - but, boy, are they having a hay day with the gluten free indoctrination - they get us coming and going : ).

400 Companies that DO NOT use GMO's in their products.

http://realfarmacy.com/400-companies-no-gmos/

All too often we rely on the state to tell us what to eat and which companies are ethical. And all too often the companies that the state deems ethical and safe are proven to be quite the opposite. The giant agricultural companies that produce GMOs and use millions of tons of chemicals are able to do so because of monetary support. As long as we continue to purchase their products they will continue to pollute the environment and our bodies.

You and I have the power to stop this madness. We can choose to support those companies that do not use GMOs. The best way is to buy from a local organic farmer, or to grow your own; however there are plenty of ethical companies out there that you can support who practice sustainable methods and source from farmers that do not use GMO. Below is a list from the NON GMO Project of brands that offer, specifically, NON GMO products.

These companies believe that their customers deserve to make an informed choice.

Is there anything actually being done in your area to combat this Spiritwind?? Makes the question jut how many tests are being done today at the ignorance of the public all over the world...not just in the USA...... :evil:

Exclusive: Navy Secretly Conducting Electromagnetic Warfare Training on Washington Roads

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/3511 ... gton-roads

Without public notification of any kind, the US Navy has secretly been conducting electromagnetic warfare testing and training on public roads in western Washington State for more than five years.

An email thread between the Navy and the US Forest Service between 2010 and 2012, recently obtained via a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request filed by Oregon-based author and activist Carol Van Strum in November 2014, revealed that the Navy has likely been driving mobile electromagnetic warfare emitters and conducting electromagnetic warfare training in the Olympic National Forest and on public roads on Washington's Olympic Peninsula since 2010.

In one of the 2012 emails, Navy contractor Gerald Sodano explained that the Navy "utilized EW [electronic warfare] ranges outside the local vicinity." But he went on to say that the aim of establishing an electromagnetic warfare range on the Olympic Peninsula would be to conduct all training locally on the Olympic Peninsula, rather than further afield. This means that rather than using expansive training areas the Navy already has access to in Yakima in eastern Washington State, the Navy aims to use the Olympic National Forest and areas adjacent to Olympic National Park instead.

"What the Navy is doing we have no idea because they don't tell us."
As Truthout previously reported, the Navy itself has produced a medical study showing that exposure to electromagnetic radiation causes a myriad of human health problems, including corneal damage, tubular degeneration of testicles, brain heating, sterility, altered penile function, death, cranial nerve disorders, seizures, convulsions, depression, insomnia, chest pain, and even sparking between dental fillings.

Other reports by the US Air Force, NASA, medical doctors and scientific publications confirm these and other deleterious health effects that would result from the Navy's electromagnetic weaponry arsenal, in addition to large-scale negative impacts on birds, aquatic life and other biota.

As Truthout previously reported, the Navy intends to conduct widespread electromagnetic warfare training across much of the Olympic Peninsula, which would entail flying as many as 153 jets down to 1,200 feet above ground in some areas, in 2,900 training exercises lasting up to 16 hours per day, 260 days per year, with no end date in sight.

The Navy's plans also include setting up mobile units on the ground, with towers emitting electromagnetic radiation signals for the planes to locate as part of their exercises. According to an email from Naval Warfare Range Manager Kent Mathes, if the Navy gets its way, there will be 275 "events" per year, between the mobile emitters and ships at sea. (This information is not mentioned in any public documents.) The definition of "event" is not clear, but according to other Navy documents, a single event can last from a few minutes to several days. If combined, the total number of events for the Olympic, Okanogan-Wenatchee and Colville National Forests will be over 5,000.

Sodano also stated the Navy's intent to drive the mobile emitters "on existing roads and trails throughout the Olympic Peninsula," and "all through most of the region as well as outside the geographic confines of the MOAs (Military Operating Areas) to optimize and vary training scenarios."

This means that while the Navy has been under widespread and growing public pressure against its proposed electromagnetic warfare training on the Olympic Peninsula starting this year, it has in fact already been secretly conducting training for at least five years in the Olympic National Forest and on public roads across the entire Olympic Peninsula.

"Tested Well With Aircraft"

Further documentation obtained through FOIA requests makes it clear that the electromagnetic "games" have already been underway for some time. A map from a permit issued by the Forest Service to the Navy in 2011 is labeled "Results of Area Review 14-18 November In Support of Navy Electronic Warfare Training in the Northwest."

Further along in that document the same map is labeled "Proposed Areas of Review in support of Navy Electronic Warfare Training." The first shows mobile emitter sites in Olympic National Forest that "tested well with aircraft," and includes a photo of a truck-and-trailer mobile emitter parked at several sites and a campground area.

Both maps include Hood Canal Road and the entire length of Route 101 on the Olympic Peninsula, which is the most popular tourist route in the area. The public road leading to the world-renowned Hoh Rainforest is also shown as a mobile emitter route. The Hoh Tribe, which has lived there for centuries, was not consulted by the Navy. The tribe's only notification of the training has been a marked increase in low-flying jet traffic. These public roads are listed as "Areas in Support" in the electromagnetic warfare training maps.

Taken together, these documents are an apparent admission that the Navy has already been conducting electromagnetic warfare training in the area, despite their own claims to the contrary.

The general public remained unaware of the establishment of an electromagnetic warfare range over any portion of the Olympic Peninsula until late September 2014, about six weeks after the Navy's 15-day comment period on an environmental assessment (EA) closed. The Navy issued a "finding of no significant impact." A few days later, the subject was closed and no further opportunity forpublic comment was allowed, despite the fact that no comments had ever been received by the Navy from elected officials, Native American tribes or individual residents - because nobody knew about it.

Meanwhile, within the government, the Navy's plans were not meeting even minimum standards. A little over a month before the short time the Navy's EA was open for public comment, a Forest Service employee, in a document obtained by Truthout, commented, "This document [the EA] does not meet minimum Forest Service standards for completeness and based on this document the Forest Service could not prepare a Decision that would need to be signed by the Deciding Official prior to issuing a permit." Another employee comment said, "USFWS [US Fish and Wildlife Service] and USFS will require review of a DRAFT Wildlife Biological Assessment prior to submittal for informal or formal consultation."

But the Navy replied that it would not do a biological assessment, and instead would "expand the discussion" on threatened and endangered species in the EA itself.

One of the frontline opponents of the Navy's plans in Washington State is Karen Sullivan, who herself worked for the US Fish and Wildlife Service, in the Division of Endangered Species and External Affairs, for 15 and a half years. Her experience ranges across many locations, from Delaware, to Washington, DC, to Alaska, and she now resides in Port Townsend, on the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State.

"Anyone who reads the EA will see that expanded discussion is 100 percent boilerplate and contains no specific information on impacts," Sullivan told Truthout.

In that EA and at subsequent public information meetings requested by Rep. Derek Kilmer (D-Washington), the Navy stressed that establishing a 100-foot perimeter around each mobile emitter and marking it with hazard tape was sufficient to protect humans and wildlife from any harm. It claimed that any humans or large mammals entering the hazard area would cause the emitter equipment to be shut down for safety reasons.

"Effects on small mammals, birds, reptiles and amphibians were completely ignored, despite the fact that all 15 Olympic National Forest and state-owned sites selected by the Navy for the mobile emitters are in critical habitat for endangered species," Sullivan said. "They even said that amphibians were unlikely to be found at the sites they'd chosen, and the Forest Service did not dispute this. Do they not realize it's a rainforest?"

Her concerns - and those of a broad swath of the public across the Olympic Peninsula where the Navy's war games are to occur - are well founded, by the Navy's own admission. In an interview with the Peninsula Daily News, Sodano admitted that 15 minutes of exposure to the radiation emitted by the Navy's electromagnetic warfare trucks could damage the liquid tissue of the eye.

Despite all the public outcry, and all the scientific evidence that backs it up, the Forest Service has indicated that it will issue the Navy a permit later this year, to use its forest roads.

Given that the Navy has admitted in emails and other documents that it has already been running its mobile emitters on public roads unbeknownst to the public (with no "hazard zone" in place), how can it possibly propose to safely operate said emitters within a 100-foot hazard exclusion zone?

The Navy's First Public Admission?

The first hint that the Navy was already conducting electromagnetic warfare training in Olympic National Forest appeared on November 6, 2014, when high levels of public outrage forced Representative Kilmer to urge the Navy to hold public briefings.

Much of the public was already outraged at the Navy's proposed plans for electromagnetic warfare training, and more than 100 people packed the Port Angeles City Council chambers for a public presentation by Naval Warfare Range Manager Kent Mathes, Forest Service District Ranger Dean Millett and the Navy's John Mosher.

At this time, the public had no hint that the Navy was already doing this training on public roads.

During the presentation, however, Mathes announced, "The Navy has been doing this sort of training for years."

Perhaps because no one in the audience knew the Navy was already conducting this training, no one understood what Mathes meant by his overt admission.

An audience member who identified himself as a 24-year veteran of the Army took the microphone during the meeting and told the audience, "He [Forest Service District Ranger Millett] told me he's issued permits for a few years and that they have these mobile emitter units out there, and I want to know, have they been out there, and if they have, how'd you get consent to do that?"

In response, the Navy's John Mosher provided a long, obfuscated response:

So no, they're not out there currently, as a conceptual test prior to environmental assessment we did apply for temporary permits, this was a one-time use to go to those particular sites to determine if they're feasible for what we're proposing. So we went there with the equipment, to be able to do the electromagnetic environmental safety surveys that I mentioned so we could conduct those tests, so we went out there with a piece of equipment, with the proper approvals and permits to do it, and we basically used these meters to determine what the distance of effects would be, if it in fact was consistent with the modeling that was done, the industry standards that we mentioned.
Unsatisfied, the Army veteran asked, "Well how long have you been doing that, though, you said about three years at least?"

"No no," Mosher replied. "I'm not sure what you're referring to now, the training, the electronic warfare training, that Kent just mentioned, so we've been doing that training ..."

"You've been doing that through the permits," the veteran asked. "Weren't you guys?"

"... On the ground ... no," Mosher said. "We have not been doing it for three years, we had that one-time, special-use permit..."

At this point, the audience demanded that Millett comment on having granted the Navy a special-use permit to conduct electromagnetic warfare training.

"As you said, as Mr. Mosher (unintelligible) we did issue a short-term temporary, uh, special-use permit for the, uh, proof of concept," Millett replied awkwardly. "I can't remember exactly how many years it ... I might have said three years at the time but if it was less than that ..."

Mathes interjected at this point in the discussion to tell Millett that the permit was granted in 2011.

"So it was 2011," Millett said.

After the meeting, Sullivan wrote to the Forest Service asking about the 2011 permit, and the agency replied that it had issued four short-term permits to the Navy for "feasibility tests of the Integrated Air Defense System."

The letter, of which Sullivan provided a copy to Truthout, continued, "The first of the four temporary permits was authorized in 2010 and the last of the four was authorized at the beginning of 2014."

FOIA materials revealed that Millett had signed every one of them.

One clear implication of the above remarks by Millett, Mathes and Mosher is that such lies by federal officials are illegal. Under 18 US Code § 1515, "misleading conduct" is described as:

(A) knowingly making a false statement;
(B) intentionally omitting information from a statement and thereby causing a portion of such statement to be misleading, or intentionally concealing a material fact, and thereby creating a false impression by such statement;
(C) with intent to mislead, knowingly submitting or inviting reliance on a writing or recording that is false, forged, altered, or otherwise lacking in authenticity.
(D) with intent to mislead, knowingly submitting or inviting reliance on a sample, specimen, map, photograph, boundary mark, or other object that is misleading in a material respect; or
(E) knowingly using a trick, scheme or device, with intent to mislead.
The officials' comments and obfuscations fall under several of these categories. The Navy and federal government were plainly denying Washingtonians access to the facts about what was really taking place in their state.

Washington State in the Dark?

Apparently, it was not only the general public that was unaware the Navy had already been conducting electromagnetic warfare on state roads; officials within the state government were also kept in the dark.

In March 2015, Sullivan contacted the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) asking for any records indicating that the Navy had applied for a permit to conduct electromagnetic warfare on public roads. WSDOT responded immediately, and a phone conversation between Sullivan and WSDOT's Joni Higgins revealed that WSDOT was shocked that such activity might have been happening on public roads.

Higgins confirmed that no such permit category even existed.

Another WSDOT employee, speaking on condition of anonymity, verified for Truthout that WSDOT had not been consulted or notified by the Navy regarding any electromagnetic warfare training involving roads or highways in the state.

Truthout's request for comment from Washington Gov. Jay Inslee's office was not replied to at the time of this writing.

Overwhelming Evidence of Harm

How invasive - or downright harmful - are the mobile emitters the Navy is using? The Navy regularly compares these emitters to cellphone towers, but in the aforementioned email thread, Navy representative Sodano said, "This system is the same as, or similar to, civilian navigational aids and radars at local airports and television weather stations throughout the United States."

If that is true, it contradicts the cell tower analogy: Exposure to radar of any strength is still considered by the radar and electromagnetic radiation equipment manufacturing industry to be harmful, while exposure to cellphones or cell towers is supposedly not.

Yet even if we accept the cell tower comparison, the emitters aren't off the hook. Any claim that cell towers are completely safe is contradicted by many peer-reviewed studies, as well as a 2014 letter from the US Department of the Interior to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), on its inadequate standards for cellphone towers.

None of the public documents on the Navy's war games has ever discussed any potential impacts from the downward-directed electromagnetic radiation coming from jets overhead, which are equipped with weaponized lasers and microwaves, as well as a powerful type of radar known as active electronically scanned array.

The Navy's own web page on radio-frequency hazard avoidance concerns only heat effects, but has a strong requirement that aircraft radars be turned away from personnel areas.

However, the Navy's response to public concerns about deleterious health effects from its war games has been to point people toward its own inadequate environmental assessment (EA). The military branch continues to claim that "no significant impacts" will result from its electromagnetic war games.

Dr. Martin Pall, a professor emeritus of Washington State University, has written several peer-reviewed papers on how electromagnetic radiation of various levels impacts human beings, and has given international lectures on the subject.

Pall told Truthout that the Navy's claims of safety are "untrue," and provided reams of evidence, including his own scientific reports, which document the extremely dangerous impacts of even very low levels of the microwave and electromagnetic radiation that the Navy would be emitting during its war games.

According to Pall, there is ample evidence of biological effects from EMF radiation that are "extremely worrisome." These include cellular DNA damage that causes cancer and infertility, and, Pall said, "both of these have been repeatedly reported to occur with low-level exposures."

"What the Navy is doing we have no idea because they don't tell us," Pall told Truthout. "But from what little they have told us, they are using a lot of pulse fields in wavelengths that are damaging to us, to biological organisms. They give us not one iota of evidence of what biological effects are produced by those fields, and don't even tell us what fields they are using. You only find empty statements of 'don't worry about these things.'"

An April 1981 NASA study titled "Electromagnetic Field Interactions with the Human Body: Observed Effects and Theories" revealed the significant damage that EMF radiation causes to humans.

As for adverse effects from EMF radiation, the NASA report states, "Some result in death and persistent disease," with other impacts including "ventricular fibrillation and sudden infant death syndrome," "cataracts" and "accelerated aging." It notes that electromagnetic fields "may promote cancer" and cause a "decrease in sex function."

In fact, the Navy itself has published a medical study warning of the extremely harmful health effects of exposure to even low levels of electromagnetic radiation. The Navy has known about these effects since at least 1971, when the Naval Medical Research Institute published a research report written by Dr. Zorach Glaser, of which Truthout acquired a copy. The title of the report is "Bibliography of Reported Biological Phenomena ('Effects') and Clinical Manifestations Attributed to Microwave and Radio-Frequency Radiation."

Given that the Navy continues to claim that its electromagnetic warfare training exercises will have "no significant impact" on humans, it is interesting to note that its own research paper's abstract states:

More than 2,000 references on the biological responses to [microwave and] radio frequency and microwave radiation, published up to June 1971, are included in the bibliography. (Three supplementary listings bring the number of citations to more than 2,300.) Particular attention has been paid to the effects on man of non-ionizing radiation at these frequencies.
The Navy's paper lists well over 100 negative biological effects caused by microwave and radio frequency radiations, including: corneal damage, tubular degeneration of testicles, brain heating, alteration of the diameter of blood vessels, liver enlargement, altered sex ratio of births, decreased fertility, sterility, altered fetal development, decreased lactation in nursing mothers, altered penal function, death, cranial nerve disorders, seizures, convulsions, depression, insomnia, hand tremors, chest pain, thrombosis, alteration in the rate of cellular division, anorexia, constipation, altered adrenal cortex activity, chromosome aberrations, tumors, altered orientation of animals, birds and fish, loss of hair and sparking between dental fillings.

Given all of these severe health impacts, it is clear why so many people in Washington State are now concerned about the fact that the Navy has been secretly conducting electromagnetic warfare training on state roads as well as in the Olympic, Okanogan-Wenatchee and Colville National Forests.

"Chances are that for several years, motorists could have unknowingly encountered mobile emitters while driving, or could have parked near them at campgrounds or roadside pullouts," Sullivan concluded. "If the mobile emitters are conducting electronic warfare without hazard zones and with jets overhead sending down their own EM radiation, how is that not considered a public health hazard?"

I also was checking the article out and every product listed goes to "page not found". Not sure why as I have been on the Real Farmacy site before and that wasn't the case. There are lots of glitches, I tried to sign up for a free online documentary from Vaxxter and it went to a "spam filter" message. I am getting weirder feelings everyday as to the way the internet is being censored and often openly so such as the case with RT news.

I've been feel-thinking on a lot of fronts these past few weeks. There are times empathy is not easy to navigate and with all that is ongoing its hard to know where to put my energy so I just sit and ponder. While my personal life is full of many blessings by seeing the onslaught of diabolical agendas so starkly I ask what is the most vital to focus on. Every where I view drives the nail in harder that the death dealing corporations consumed by greed are the propagators of a cult mentality that has rendered our human goodness as part of its resource base. We buy death.

I know I am sounding very doom and gloom when I am actually an true optimist at heart. What I see isn't pretty and I think of the children growing up in such a toxic environment and the damage that is ongoing ... Most of us that will read this grew up in a time when food supplies were cleaner and the vaccine agenda was minimal. This doesn't mean we didn't suffer from a dysfunctional societal norm but our resistance was stronger. I don't mind feeling the way I do right now knowing that by confronting this sense of despair new answers are just around the corner. Meanwhile we continue to share, to shake and to rumble the walls of ignorance down.

All that said to preface this article, it's bad news mixed with answers. I've long appreciated Dr. Mercola's work and this is a good example:

I'm sorry I didn't do a better check on that article on the 400 companies that do not use GMO's in their products. I had planned to go back to it and actually check them all out, because I do want to know this information, but once again I made an assumption. They've been getting me in trouble lately. Thanks Sandy for bringing this to our attention. Disappointing though.

And Christine, I too have been doing a lot of feel-thinking lately. Great way to put it. More and more I'm feeling inclined not so much to ignore what is going on "out there", but dramatically sensor my focus. I notice when I just put the technology down, and spend more time in nature and on what I personally can do to enhance my own daily experience I am not subjecting myself as much to the side effects of all the doom and gloom. I know it's out there, but for the moment I still can influence my own daily life experience in a way that to me is the antidote. Even though we can and do still feel what is going on in a larger sense, there is even a viewpoint further out that goes even beyond this too, if that makes any sense. It's something I can feel much better than I can put into words. Sometimes you just know something in your heart that flies in the face of what appears to be real. Not finding the right words right now.

For those news junkies that just have to have more shock and awe : )

And what could possibly go wrong with this???


Genetically Engineered Mosquitoes To Be Released In 20 States

http://humansarefree.com/2017/11/geneti ... re+Free%29

Protection Agency has approved the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes in 20 US states and Washington D.C – what are the implications of this mass experiment?

In early November the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) approved the use of mosquitoes which have been genetically engineered to carry a common bacterium designed to kill mosquitoes that carry dangerous viruses.

The news was reported in Nature, and later confirmed to Gizmodo by MosquitoMate, the company behind the GE mosquitoes, and the EPA. The EPA said they officially registered MosquitoMate’s Asian Tiger mosquito with a five-year license to sell their lab mosquitoes in 20 states across the nation.

Nature reported:
"On 3 November, the agency told biotechnology start-up MosquitoMate that it could release the bacterium Wolbachia pipientis into the environment as a tool against the Asian tiger mosquito (Aedes albopictus). Lab-reared mosquitoes will deliver the bacterium to wild mosquito populations.

"The decision — which the EPA has not formally announced — allows the company, which is based in Lexington, Kentucky, to release the bacteria-infected mosquitoes in 20 US states and Washington DC."

The goal is to have MosquitoMate release the Wolbachia-infected A. albopictus male mosquitoes into the wild to mate with wild females in the hopes that the fertilized eggs do not hatch due to faulty paternal chromosomes.

As with all mosquitoes, the laboratory grown male mosquitoes do not bite. MosquitoMate believes that over time the infected males will help shrink the population of A. albopictus mosquitoes.

Stephen Dobson, an entomologist at the University of Kentucky in Lexington and founder of MosquitoMate, told Nature that other species of mosquito and other insects are not harmed by the release of the lab mosquitoes. Dobson also stated that MosquitoMate plans to begin selling the mosquitoes locally in Lexington, Kentucky and then from there expand to nearby cities.

The EPA’s decision came after the US Food and Drug Administration approved the release of genetically engineered mosquitoes designed to prevent the spread of the Zika virus. The FDA’s approval was in relation to a field test of genetically modified mosquitoes engineered by the British biotechnology company Oxitec.

Oxitec is the same company involved in a controversial vote in the Florida Keys during the 2016 Election. In that vote, residents of the Key Haven voted against the release of the mosquitoes in their community. However, shortly after, the trials were approved for a different location in the Keys.

Despite the approval, opposition to the controversial project has not ceased. In late November 2016, Health News Florida reported that a coalition of groups, including the Center for Food Safety and the Florida Keys Environmental Coalition, have filed a 60-day notice of intent to sue the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

Earlier this year the Houston Chronicle reported that Oxitec is working on a deal with Harris County officials to release GE mosquitoes in the Houston area. Oxitec is attempting to sway Houston officials by stating that their product has a nearly 100% success rate.

Gizmodo reported:
"The company claims that trials in Brazil, Panama and the Cayman Islands have reduced mosquito populations by 90%, calling the success “an unprecedented level” of human control over nature."

(The World Health Organization, for it’s [sic]part, has stated that while the technology “has demonstrated the ability to reduce the [mosquito] populations in small-scale field trials” there is still “an absence of data on epidemiological impact.”)
Interestingly, in October 2017, the FDA made another announcement which clarifies that “mosquito-related products intended to function as pesticides” are not “drugs” under the Federal Food, Drug, & Cosmetic Act, and “will be regulated by the EPA under the Federal Insecticide Act.”

This decision led to the November announce from the EPA and now sets the stage for future experiments with genetically engineered mosquitoes.

Will the first site of genetically engineered mosquitoes be in Houston, the Florida Keys, or one of the newly approved 20 states? Time will tell. For now, it is important to express your thoughts and concerns to local officials.

If this is happening in your area and you have concerns, do not sit around doing nothing, or only complain online. Take some type of action. Educate your neighbors and hold your public officials accountable.

After I wrote this I sat with it for awhile and wasn't sure if it was a good idea to publish it or not. While I know I am posting a truth it isn't by any means the complete truth nor does it help for those who are likely to read it because they are already aware and have digested enough information and research to connect the dots. So be it, decided that is was better to speak up than remain silent.

There is a much deeper issue though and it seems to be more obvious to me at least. I do follow lots of friends (and yes some are truly friends) on FB and have observed that they are intelligent, spiritual, compassionate and informed however it seems too many haven't done some needed research. Some who read my posts here have perhaps wondered why my keen interest in World War history, I too have pondered that and now I see so clearly why I was called in that direction. For those with eyes to see it is absolutely clear how the "hidden hand" is once again manipulating humanity down the well trodden path to war. The move by the trumpster to declare Jerusalem the de-facto capital of Israel will have predetermined consequences and those are a violent response, that response will be used as justification for war.

The whole crux of the question we must ask ourselves about Hitler (and others who opposed the world's banking cartel) was just that: When a nation's (meaning a native population of real people with a traditional identity who inhabit a land mass) sovereignty is threatened by an invasion of parasitical forces what recourse do they have? Negotiation never bears lasting results, peace treaties are signed with intent to be broken, covert agents of disease are planted within to foment dissent. etc., etc., etc. They are quite literally forced to war.

No change will come from within government. WE the PEOPLE must take a stand, it is our only viable means to promote peace, withdraw from the system and reveal the fuckers (excuse for being literal here but this what they are, pedophiles and demonic entities of destruction) for what they are.

We have arrived and this week is showing us every damn thing we need to know along with the opportunity to choose freedom from nefarious “authority”. Rather than write a long blog allow me to recap a few blows, and pose a question, where is your personal bottom line before you act according to consciousness? If we continue to support agencies, governments and corporations that peddle death we are complicit. How many are long overdue a reality check up?

Frankly I am tired and at times sick of how ignorant people choose to stay as long as their personal lives aren’t being affected. And well in the way of my frank honesty it doesn’t do a thing for me to know we are spiritual beings in a human body because my body is every body and that to me is truly Spiritual. While my strength is Spirit it is also that which moves me to speak, to sometimes shout and at other moments to remain silent. Today I shout because we all have to pay the price for ignorance and hypocrisy.

Brief recap:

150,000 Flee Los Angeles As Wildfires Rage – “We’ll Be Fighting This All Week”

Way too similar to the geo-engineered Santa Rosa fires. Agenda 21 anyone? Too many pedophiles exposed?

Traders at top bitcoin exchange claim they have no access to their money

Greed knows no boundaries. Anyone think virtual currency is safe?

[hyperlink=]https://www.rt.com/news/412165-us-jerusalem-trump-announcement/Trump formally recognizes Jerusalem capital of Israel[/hyperlink]

Excuse me but when can the president of the incorporated entity of america declare Jerusalem the capital of Israel?

U.S. Lawmakers Seek to Criminally Outlaw Support for Boycott Campaign Against Israel

Is it is difficult to put the two above news dots together? If so it is time to dig deeper and find out what the government of Israel really is about.

2018 Olympics ban is another attempt at isolating Russia – foreign ministry

Exceedingly obvious politicking and propaganda don’t ya think? Blame it on Russia, it worked before.

No one likes bad news, most turn it off or go to the talking heads on mainstream channels in a way that confounds my awakened mind, that this numbs people because they believe those in-the-know actually know something and have it under control. There voices drone on making it news then quickly moving on to the next unsavory sound bite. Hey! What happen to the deadliest shooting in Las Vegas story? Too many holes in it I guess… Heck no, I know so. They couldn’t patch that one back together.

So while I am on a rant, 81 “suicided “holistic doctors, I changed the number in the title because there was a new death today. What are the odds? Probably incalculable but we the people stay silent and continue to visit the pill pushers death dealers doors.

Not in the mood today to be quiet so while I am at it, anyone care about, know about SRA (Satanic Ritual Abuse) and pedophilia that is being revealed from the stench filled underground tombs of governors, queens and kings, Hollywood moguls and minions, cops, officials, etc. Seems every person who reaches the pinnacle of power is corrupted … Some of us know this all too well. Isn’t that and shouldn’t the life of a child be our bottom line? Shouldn’t we heed the inner call of humanity and protect the innocent and sacred gift of life? I guess it might still be too inconvenient.

______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Then there is the good news, people are waking up and will continue to in wave upon wave because when it gets personal and you lose your home, your tax write offs or your long held belief in the system you’ve go nothing left to lose.

Withdraw consent in meaningful ways and while I may sound haughty or arrogant I do know what we are facing and what each one faces as the blinds are pulled back, it isn’t easy so know that you are not alone and Know that the Universe has something extraordinarily unimaginable to show us.

Hear Hear or Here Here..................both work so will use both seeing as I am not sure which one fits.... :lol: Couldn't agree more Christine and yes the latest Trump Trick is just another barb in hopes to evoke Iran/Russia into angry reactions...but my guts tell me that the likes of the elite are not going to get the better of humankind because as you say...people are waking up>>>>>including some of the elite and their followers............the writing is on the wall IMHO and I hope I get to see some of it in my time! :P In the meantime I have a 3 month order of dehydrated goods being delivered this week.... 8-)

As currents of change continue to speed up, I find it challenging to keep up with it all. I particularly regret that I cannot watch many videos online, and the backlog is so great I wouldn't even know where to begin.

It is interesting to observe that which appears on the inner screen (and that doesn't cost me a thing, except my time!) when compared against my daily scroll through my email and Facebook feed. Just a couple days ago, when I was spending some time asking that which has an expanded view, namely Nature herself, to help me understand what is going on with the recent fires in Southern California, several things were revealed to me. Often I have no way to back up these inner visions, but I do often receive confirmation of a synchronistic sort shortly following them. I also don't know why certain things are revealed to me, and know even then it is just a small glimpse of something much bigger. It's always just a small piece of a much larger whole. But it's something, none the less.

So I found it interesting that I "saw" the other day, a growing atmosphere, patches of green, and surface water on Mars! This scene made me think of some things that were shared with me about 7-8 years ago, having to do with fire, a new world, and something to do with Mars. I had wondered ever since. I don't think this will actually happen, but I do think at least a small group of individuals already do have colonies started there, and plan to just take a hike when this planet starts to become uninhabitable. I don't get that this is even the first time around, like, this sort of thing happens rather cyclically. Even on our own planet they have decimated areas in the past, left them alone for long periods of time, and then came back after the land had recovered to start harvesting the resources once again. I have found much corroborating evidence that this may have been so.

Anyway, I just want to pass on this link to a pretty good looking list of documentaries I unfortunately won't be able to watch. But would if I could, and may yet get to. What got my attention was the first one on the list, called Packing For Mars, about just what I wrote about above. It seems there are at least some here who truly don't give a damn about what happens to the rest of us because they (think, anyway) that they have their ticket off all sown up. It might just not work out the way they plan though. I feel there is a wild card to be played yet...

By the way Christine, that was a pretty epic rant up there! Great stuff though : )
