The Relationship Between Bilderberg, Geoengineering, Your Health Care... & More



The intention of this film is to provide the viewer with a wealth of factual information that he or she may not have been aware of, or have disregarded in the past as not having merit.

The filmmakers have chosen to use what some may consider polarizing figures to present this information, however their intention is the complete opposite. Although everyone in this film speaks for themselves they hope to present a complete picture that can generally be agreed upon by all.

Nothing in this world works the way you think it does. Governments do not operate the way you think they do, banks do not do what you think they do, the Police Department is not here for what you think it is... nothing in your world works the way you think it does. There's a far higher, bigger picture.

In 1954 a group of industrialists, political elites and even royalty set out to form an organization that will essentially pull the strings of society from behind the scenes. The Bilderberg Group is a group of world leaders, CEOs, heads of banking institutions that meet every year and decide what's going to happen throughout that next year.

The media has largely ignored this organization over the past 50+ years and even today when it's mentioned it's mentioned in a manner in which you shouldn't be asking about it. The mainstream media is now acknowledging that these world leaders are meeting except for there is nothing to worry about. They're not doing anything sinister even thought they meet behind closed doors.

We've been programmed to believe certain things, we've been programmed, when we hear certain buzz words, to immediately close ourselves off to that information. The powerful elite hide behind the curtain of government. They hide behind the wall, the facade of government and really there's just a tiny dot that control the masses. These are the shadow masters.

On a vacation...

 
As some may have noticed, I have not been posting much at all lately. I've simply been busy and unwilling to devote any little energy I do have to the typical absurdities in the world; this is largely due to my own lack of self-discipline regarding other responsibilities I have. I do plan to review the news and what-not and post some things relatively soon... but any sort of continuity will not be possible until we are into December.

I do have one question though; WHY do we allow the government to do nothing - to take zero steps, dictated simply by common sense, in protecting the United States from incoming individuals from W. Africa. Why people can hit the streets for iPhones and not this is telling. In the meantime, I'll pull up a chair and watch the circus ensue.

Obama is Obola

Aiding ISIS/alQaeda and wide-open borders wasn't enough...

I've been pretty busy trying to keep my head above water in school and with work these last few weeks... but I've been watching this Ebola absurdity take place within this country (the United States). I cannot believe the [lack of] measures taken by this government and the manner in which the media has placated the public. I am writing this off-the-cuff so bear with me...

For one, when asked by reporters why flights are still allowed to outbreak nations they often receive a response that ceasing flights would exacerbate the issue. Let's see, African dictators are countering the Ebola threat better than U.S. "authorities"? How would stopping flights to and from nations like Sierra Leone make the Ebola problem worse?

The Transportation Security Administration has been tasked with checking passengers for Ebola at U.S. airports. Folks, this is the same agency that has largely been incompetent throughout the years while repeatedly using poor judgment. What's more, a typical TSA employee has no medical background - the TSA is essentially branching off to be the CDC's foot soldiers at airports. Here is the real problem - Ebola may incubate within a host randomly between two and twenty-one (21) days; how is checking for temperatures and other symptoms at U.S. airports a feasible solution? It's not. Passengers can take OTC medications to reduce fever or the onset of symptoms... or they may have NONE. Further, if you have a sick individual identified at a U.S. airport it's too late anyways - they are already here. If our "leaders" were competent they would be handling this issue prior to arrival within the U.S., via such logical approaches as checking passports for any recent travel to west Africa (and by recent I mean any time within the last four to five weeks). Every single airline should be doing this!

For those that like to tout the American medical system as capable of isolating patients think again. U.S. hospitals cannot even contain infections such as Clostridium difficile. Regardless, even if we pretended hospitals had the capability to contain Ebola it is not a solution.

Obama... oops, sorry, Obola, has now arranged for 3,000 U.S. troops to travel to Liberia to "fight" Ebola. I guess there is a new war now - a "war on Ebola". All the other ones worked [the war on drugs, the war on ter'r] so why not right? The U.S. military isn't designed to respond to epidemics, it is designed to wage war. There is likely another reason for these troops being sent... and that is beyond the scope of this post. My point here is that the military is not a 'fit' for deploying to assist in an epidemic... and if anything, if taken at face value, these troops are being put into a precarious situation for what? Why wouldn't the WHO be taking charge here instead of taking actions such as restricting the shipment of supplements to W. Africa?

Take a look at the fiasco surrounding patient zero in Dallas; he was sent home with antibiotics, it took days to clean his apartment, an ill-equipped hazmat crew cleans up vomit (one individual pointed out they used what appeared to be painters tape on their gloves), it took roughly two days to properly sanitize the ambulance, and on and on...

The point here is that either Obola and Co. are utterly inept or they are deliberately choosing their tactics (or lack of). To write them off, Obola and the rest of the U.S. government, as just plain stupid is a disservice to yourself, everyone else, and the U.S. - they are not stupid.

So then, is the fiasco currently taking place deliberate??? If so, why? We should all be asking these questions.

What will it take for this nation to impeach a president? Does Obola need to get a blow job by Kerry or some intern first for the public to even get a little heated up? Seriously, I want to understand. The entire administration needs to be impeached... and the Ebola issue is simply the latest in a list that is far too long to even attempt at this time.

DHS Fines American – But Not Illegals – $5,000 For Crossing Border

The Department of Homeland Security has fined an American and a Canadian $5,000 each for crossing the U.S./Canada border, fines which are never assessed on thousands of illegal aliens who are detained by Border Patrol daily. The two men, a 40-year-old American and a 44-year-old Canadian, were walking down a dirt road with mountain bikes near the border when they were approached by a Border Patrol agent.


Illegals are instead given free food and transportation to anywhere in America

“Questioning by the agent revealed that the two suspects illegally entered the U.S. from Canada,” stated a Customs and Border Patrol press release. “Subsequently, both males were arrested for violation of U.S. law and transported to the Rangeley Station for further processing.”

“Following database verifications, Border Patrol agents turned over both subjects to CBP officers at the Coburn Gore port of entry for assessment of fines and penalties.”

Both men were “assessed a $5,000 civil penalty under 19 USC 1459 for Failure to Report” to border officials and it’s unlikely that either of them crossed the border in pursuit of Obama’s de facto amnesty for illegal aliens.

“Since this is an administrative fine, the individuals do not have to go through a judicial process and will have approximately 30 days to pay the fine,” the press release added. 


Of course, when it comes to illegals entering America who are eight times more likely to vote for Democrats than Republicans, they’re not fined but rather pampered with free food, shelter, medical care, and bus tickets to anywhere in the nation.

Government officials claim the illegals are given “notices to appear” for immigration court before they are handed bus tickets to their destination of choice, but the courts are scheduling their court dates four years from now.

“They know they are going to be processed and released and they are free to go wherever they want to go in the United States and the likelihood of them ever showing up for their court date is slim to none,” Stu Harris of the National Border Patrol Council Local 1929 told Infowars.

This selective enforcement of immigration laws, in which an American is fined for crossing the border while thousands of illegal aliens are encouraged to do so, exemplifies how the Obama administration is directing federal agencies to target peaceful Americans but not illegal immigrants the White House is exploiting for political gain.

Back in July, for example, federal agents detained a Boy Scout Troop for taking photos near a border checkpoint, with one agent even aiming his gun at a boy scout’s head.

“He hears a snap of a holster, turns around, and here’s this agent, both hands on a loaded pistol, pointing at the young man’s head,” Troop 111 leader Jim Fox told KCCI, who also said the agent claimed it was illegal to take photos of officials.

U.S. threatened massive fine to force Yahoo to release data

The U.S. government threatened to fine Yahoo $250,000 a day in 2008 if it failed to comply with a broad demand for user data that the company believed was unconstitutional, according to court documents unsealed Thursday.

The U.S. government threatened to fine Yahoo $250,000 a day in 2008 if it failed to comply with a broad demand to hand over user data that the company believed was unconstitutional, according to court documents unsealed Thursday that illuminate how federal officials forced American tech companies to participate in the NSA’s controversial PRISM program.

The documents, roughly 1,500 pages worth, outline a secret and ultimately unsuccessful legal battle by Yahoo to resist the government’s demands. The company’s loss required Yahoo to become one of the first to begin providing information to PRISM, a program that gave the National Security Agency extensive access to records of online communications by users of Yahoo and other U.S.-based technology firms.

The ruling by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review became a key — but almost entirely secret — moment in the development of PRISM, helping government officials to convince other Silicon Valley companies that unprecedented data demands had been tested in the courts and found constitutionally sound. Eventually most major American tech companies complied, including Google, Facebook, Apple and AOL. Microsoft had joined earlier, before the ruling, NSA documents have shown.

A version of the court ruling had come out previously, in 2008, but was so heavily redacted that observers were unable to discern what company was involved, what the stakes were and how the court had wrestled with many of the issues involved.

“We already knew that this was a very, very important decision by the FISA Court of Review, but we could only guess at why,” said Stephen Vladeck, a law professor at American University.

PRISM was first revealed by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden last year, prompting intense backlash and a wrenching national debate over allegations of overreach in government surveillance.

U.S. tech companies have struggled to defend themselves against accusations that they were willing participants in government surveillance programs — an allegation that has been particularly damaging to the reputations of these companies overseas, including in lucrative markets in Europe.

Yahoo, which endured heavy criticism after The Washington Post and Britain’s Guardian newspaper used Snowden’s documents to reveal the existence of Prism last year, was legally bound from revealing its efforts in attempting to resist government pressure. The New York Times first reported Yahoo’s role in the case in June 2013, a week after the initial PRISM revelations.

Both the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court and the Foreign Intelligence Court of Review, an appellate court, ordered declassification of the case last year, amid a broad effort to make public the legal reasoning behind NSA programs that had stirred national and international anger. Judge William C. Bryson, presiding judge of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court of Review, ordered the documents from the legal battle unsealed on Thursday. Documents from the case in the lower court have not yet been released.

Yahoo hailed the decision in a Tumblr post Thursday afternoon. “The released documents underscore how we had to fight every step of the way to challenge the U.S. Government’s surveillance efforts,” said company General Counsel Ron Bell in the post.

The Department of Justice did not immediately respond to a request seeking comment.

At issue in the original court case was a recently passed law, the Protect America Act of 2007, which allowed the government to collect data on people it “reasonably believed” to be outside of the United States at the time without getting an individual search warrant for each target. That law has since lapsed but became the foundation for the FISA Amendments Act of 2008, which created the legal authority for many of the NSA programs later revealed by Snowden.

The order requiring data from Yahoo came in 2007, soon after the Protect America Act passed. It set off alarms at the company because it side-stepped the traditional requirement that each target be subject to court review before surveillance could begin. The order also went beyond so-called “metadata” — meaning records of communications but not their actual content — to include the actual content of e-mails.

A government filing from February 2008 describe the order to Yahoo as including “certain types of communications while those communications are in transmission.” It also made clear that while this was intended to target people outside the United States, there inevitably would be “incidental collection” of the records of Americans. The government promised “stringent minimization procedures to protect the privacy interests of United States persons.”

Rather than immediately comply with the sweeping order, Yahoo sued.

Central to the case was whether the Protect America Act overstepped constitutional bounds, particularly the Fourth Amendment prohibition on searches and seizures without a warrant. An early Yahoo filing said the case was “of tremendous national importance. The issues at stake in this litigation are the most serious issues that this Nation faces today-to what extent must the privacy rights guaranteed by the United States Constitution yield to protect our national security.”

The appeals court, however, ruled that the government had put in place adequate safeguards to avoid constitutional violations.

“We caution that our decision does not constitute an endorsement of broad-based, indiscriminate executive power,” the court wrote on Aug. 22, 2008. “Rather, our decision recognizes that where the government has instituted several layers of serviceable safeguards to protect individuals against unwarranted harms and to minimize incidental intrusions, its efforts to protect national security should not be frustrated by the courts. This is such a case.”

The government threatened Yahoo with the $250,000 a day fine after the company had lost an initial round before the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court but was still pursuing an appeal. Faced with the fine, Yahoo began complying with the legal order as it continued with the appeal, which it ultimately lost several months later.

Efforts to reach the Justice Department for comment Thursday afternoon were not successful.

Stewart Baker, a former NSA general counsel and Bush administration Homeland Security official, said it’s not unusual for courts to order compliance with rulings while appeals continue before higher courts.

“I’m always amazed how people are willing to abstract these decisions from the actual stakes,” Baker said. “We’re talking about trying to gather information about people who are trying to kill us and who will succeed if we don’t have robust information about their activities.”

The ACLU applauded Thursday’s move to release the documents but said it was long overdue.

“The public can’t understand what a law means if it doesn’t know how the courts are interpreting that law,” said Patrick Toomey, a staff attorney with the ACLU’s national Security Project.

Carol Leonnig and Julie Tate contributed to this report.

National Review Online
September 11, 2014

The Senate isn’t doing anything to stop Obama’s plans — thank the plutocrats.


Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.), the ranking member of the Senate Budget Committee, delivered a speech on the Senate floor Wednesday evening about Senate Democrats’ refusal to support legislation to block the president’s proposed executive actions on immigration policy, and the interests supporting amnesty. Following is an adapted version of his remarks.

Earlier this week I spoke about the president’s promise that he would issue an executive amnesty to 5 or 6 million people. The planned amnesty would include work permits, photo IDs, and Social Security numbers for millions of people who illegally entered the U.S., illegally overstayed their visas, or defrauded U.S. immigration authorities.

The Senate Democratic conference has supported and enabled the president’s unlawful actions and blocked every effort to stop them. Not even one of our Democratic colleagues has backed the House legislation that would stop this planned executive amnesty or demanded that Senator Reid bring it up for a vote. Every Senate Democrat is therefore the president’s partner in his planned lawless acts.

Tonight I would like to talk about the influence of special interests on our nation’s immigration system. How did we get to the point where elected officials, activist groups, the ACLU, and global CEOs are openly working to deny American workers the immigration protections to which they are legally entitled? How did we get to the point where the Democratic party is prepared to nullify and wipe away the immigration laws of the United States of America?

Just yesterday Majority Leader Reid wrote in a tweet something that was shocking. He said: “Since House Republicans have failed to act on immigration, I know the President will. When he does, I hope he goes Real Big.”

Let this sink in for a moment. The majority leader of the Senate is bragging that he knows the president will circumvent Congress to issue executive amnesty to millions, and he is encouraging the president to ensure this amnesty includes as many people as possible. And the White House has acknowledged that 5 to 6 million is the number they are looking at.

Has one Senate Democrat stepped forward to reject Mr. Reid’s statement? Has one Senate Democrat stepped forward to say: I support the legislation passed by the House of Representatives that would secure the border and block this executive amnesty? Have they ever said they support that? Have they ever said: I will do everything in my power to see that the House legislation gets a vote in the Senate so the American people can know what is going on? No. All we hear is silence.

This body is not run by one man. We don’t have a dictator in the great Senate. Every member has a vote. And the only way Senator Reid can succeed in blocking this Senate from voting to stop the president’s executive actions is for members to stop supporting him.

Every senator needs to stand up and represent their constituents — not big business, not the ACLU, not activist groups, not political interests, but the American interests, the workers’ interests. That is what we need to expect from them, and we don’t have but a few weeks, it looks like, to get it done.

In effect, the entire Senate Democratic conference has surrendered the jobs, wages, and livelihoods of their constituents to a group of special interests meeting in secret at the White House. They are surrendering them to executive actions that will foist on the nation what Congress has refused to pass and the American people have rejected. They are plotting at the White House to move forward with executive action no matter what the people think and no matter what Congress — through the people’s House — has decided.

Politico reports that “White House officials conducted more than 20 meetings in July and August with legal experts, immigration advocates and business leaders to gather ideas on what should be included in the order.”

So who are these so-called expert advocates and business leaders? They are not the law-enforcement officers; they are not our ICE officers; they are not our Border Patrol officers; they are not the American working man and woman; they are not unemployed Americans. They weren’t in the room. You can be sure of that. Their opinions weren’t sought.

No, White House officials are meeting with the world’s most powerful corporate and immigration lobbyists and activists who think border controls are for the little people. The administration is meeting with the elite, the cosmopolitan set, who scorn and mock the concerns of everyday Americans who are concerned about their schools, jobs, wages, communities, and hospitals. These great and powerful citizens of the world don’t care much about old-fashioned things like national boundaries, national sovereignty, and immigration control — let alone the constitutional separation of powers.

Well, don’t you get it? They believe they are always supposed to get whatever it is they want. They are used to that. They spent hundreds of millions of dollars. In fact, one report says they have spent $1.5 billion since 2007 trying to pass their desired immigration bill — $1.5 billion. They tried and tried and tried to pass the bill through Congress, but the American people said: No, no, no. So they decided to just go to the president. They decide to go to President Obama, and they insist that he implement these measures through executive fiat. And Senate Democrats have apparently said: Well, that is just a wonderful idea. We support that. Just do it. Go big. But, Mr. President, wait a little bit. Wait until after the election. We don’t want the voters to hold us accountable for what you are doing. We want to pretend we in the Senate have nothing to do with it.

Here we are now, a few hours shy of what will be thirteen years since that infamous day in 2001. I'm writing this post not to tow the line, but instead, to try and encourage people to ask questions, do their own research, use common sense, and think for themselves.

We live in a day and age where people have the attention span of children; we cannot hold anyone accountable for anything; we allow invasions of sovereign countries based on outright lies, we allow our tax dollars to bail out crooked corporations, we allow the Obama administration to aid and arm terrorists in places like Egypt, Libya, and Syria - and either don't remember this fact or perhaps many just never knew as they choose to be spoon-fed their "news", we allow incursions on our Constitutional rights and our privacy, we allow the Obama administration to arm Mexican cartels... and much more.

With all that said, it's no wonder people haven't really dug deep into the reality of what happened on September 11, 2001. While I do not claim to know exactly what happened on that day, I do know, and am here to tell you, that the official line is nonsense. Three towers collapsed into their own footprints that day... and one was not even struck by any aircraft. While there is a multitude of information I could include in this post I am going to keep it very simple in an attempt to hopefully awaken some inquisitive minds that may have been in some form of a dormant state.

Remember, the heat was so tremendous it "brought the towers down", yet passports floated safely from the inferno to be discovered essentially unscathed... discovered in an extremely quick fashion.

The material that provided the support for the entire WTC complex was steel; steel is an alloy of iron and carbon. The melting point of iron is 2,750 Fahrenheit, and steel is 2,500 Fahrenheit. Jet fuel is basically refined kerosine, and burns at maximum, under control, at 1800 Fahrenheit (regular open fire temps tend to reach 500-700 Fahrenheit). We are not talking about the adiabatic process that describes the temperature required for fuel to ignite without a spark - an aircraft colliding with a building is indeed a very big spark. Further, I'd hardly call the floors that absorbed the impact of the two doomed flights on 9/11 a control environment; I'd call Jet-A fuel burning office furniture and papers an open fire... and if you bother yourself to look, you will see that these temps would fall well below the temperature required to significantly weaken and/or melt the steel within those structures. With that said let's continue.

Never in history, has a building collapsed into its own footprint due to fire (or collapsed at all for that matter). The following is some examples:

One Meridian Plaza in Philadelphia burned for 18 hours on February 23, 1991. Eight floors were destroyed in a fire that began on the 22nd floor resulting in $100 million in damage. Philadelphia officials touted this event as "the most significant fire in this century".

On May 4, 1988, The First Interstate Bank Building in Los Angeles burned for three and a half hours; the fire caused $200 million in damages. 64 fire companies fought the fire in total.

Due to an explosion, 1 New York Plaza burned for more than six hours on August 5, 1970.

Caracas Tower
Caracas Tower in Caracas, Venezuela, burned for more than seventeen hours on the night of October 17, 2004. Over twenty-six floors were engulfed in flames.

The Windsor Building, in Madrid, Spain, burned for almost twenty-four hours on February 12, 2005. Although there was partial collapse of some floors, it did not collapse neatly into its own footprint. It was demolished.

The Hotel Mandarin Oriental
The Hotel Mandarin Oriental, in Beijing, China, burned severely across all floors for over three hours on February 9, 2009. The building stood. The fire was popularly referred to as the Beijing Torch.

World Trade Center 1 & 2 burned for less than one hour. Both collapsed at free-fall speed, neatly into their own footprints, taking nearly 3,000 lives with them.

WTC Building 7
   
World Trade Center 7 (Building 7), was never struck by any aircraft, nor had it sustained any massive structural damage outside of random fire. Yet, this building, at free-fall speed (indicating no resistance onto itself), collapsed neatly, again, into its own footprint.

The BBC even announced its collapse prior to Silverstein's decision to "pull it":



And here is footage of Silverstein discussing Building 7:



And here is what architects, engineers, and some family members have raised funds to air:



There really is a hornets nest of information one can add to this... but I am not trying to write a book here. I think this is ample evidence that something was and continues to be afoul regarding the official tale of 9/11.

That reminds me. They began removing the WTC debris nearly immediately, and cleanup continued 24 hours per day, seven days per week... culminating in what was the structural support of the building escaping any private third party investigation. The material was quickly exported to nations like China for recycling. Along the same line, we still have never seen any footage of what really hit the Pentagon... arguably, one of the most secure buildings in the nation, encircled by security cameras. Security footage was quickly commandeered from local businesses such as a Citgo gas station... and, perhaps after the footage was deemed clean, it was "released" years later. To date, nothing showing any aircraft out of normal flight paths, or on collision trajectory with the Pentagon, has been released (much like the supposed Osama bin Laden 'raid').

    Six Elephant Poachers Caught in Mozambique Reserve

    September 9, 2014

    Six suspected poachers were arrested in Marrupa on Sunday in a joint operation conducted by the Mecula  District police, Luwire scouts and Niassa National Reserve Wildlife Conservation Society scouts.

    The arrests were the result of a 10-month investigation informed by crucial on-the-ground intelligence about their activities in the Niassa National Reserve, according to the Wildlife Conservation Society, based in New York City.

    The Wildlife Conservation Society has been co-managing the Niassa National Reserve with the Mozambique government since 2012.

    During the early morning raid, 12 tusks and two rifles were confiscated. Two of the tusks, 23 kilograms (57 pounds) each, were from an elephant about 40 years old.

    The worth of the tusks was estimated at over US$150,000.

    The suspects have been charged with cooperating with poachers, illegal possession of firearms, participating in poaching, and organized crime. If convicted, all suspects face fines and jail time.

    Wildlife Conservation Society President and CEO Cristian Samper said from Niassa, “With this arrest we have charged a shooter, porters and poacher informers who are driving the elephant crisis in Niassa Reserve.”

    It is estimated there are 13,000 elephants remaining in Niassa National Reserve, located in northern Mozambique. The reserve holds the country’s largest remaining population of elephants.

    Based on information provided by the suspects, law enforcement officials estimate that this group of poachers has killed 39 elephants in 2014 alone.

    “During a fly-over across a portion of the reserve, I personally witnessed an elephant that had been killed by poachers,” Samper said. “The elephant was brought down with an AK-47. We need to combine our strategies and firepower to take on these brutal criminals.”

    This arrest is considered a major crackdown on one of five well-organized groups suspected of poaching elephants in Niassa.

    “This is an important raid that has shut down a group of poachers responsible for killing many of Niassa’s elephants” said Alastair Nelson, director of the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Mozambique Program.

    “In this raid, we have arrested professional poachers, recovered weapons, ivory, ammunition, and gained additional information to crack down on poachers,” said Nelson. “This is the clear result of an important partnership between the Mozambique government, Luwire, Niassa National Reserve, and WCS.”

    “It is partnerships like this that will help us advance important efforts to protect Niassa’s elephants, promote security and governance, and secure national assets for the people of Mozambique,” Nelson said.

    “This work on the ground is part of a three-part strategy to stop the killing of elephants and stop the trafficking and demand for ivory,” said Samper. “To solve this crisis, we need to focus efforts in Africa and on the other end of the supply chain in places such as China and the United States.”

    “WCS extends its appreciation and congratulations to the Mozambique government, especially our partner, the National Administration of Conservation Areas and National Niassa Reserve Warden for their commitment to combat this crisis,” said Samper.

    Covering over 42,000 square kilometres (16,216 square miles), the Niassa Reserve is roughly the size of the country of Denmark or the U.S. state of Massachusetts. It is the largest protected area in Mozambique.

    The northern border is formed by the Rovuma River, which also forms the border with Tanzania. The reserve is part of the Trans-Frontier Conservation Area. In addition to its elephants, the Niassa Reserve is inhabited by Cape buffalo, impala, wildebeest, wild dogs, zebra and leopards.

    In my opinion, a harsh example needs to be made of poachers whom are caught.

    Facebook refuses to remove video of kitten being doused in petrol and set on fire

    Facebook refuses to remove video of kitten being doused in petrol and set on fire 'because it doesn't breach any rules'

    Facebook has refused to remove a video of a kitten allegedly being doused in petrol and set on fire because the footage does not breach any of the social network's rules.

    In the shocking clip, two unidentified men can be seen apparently torturing a young kitten by stuffing it into a bucket, pouring flammable liquid over the animal and setting it on fire.

    More than 14,000 users have commented on the clip - many expressing their disgust - but despite complaints, Facebook has not removed the two minute film.

    When user Kieran Dunwel reported the footage for containing graphic violence, he was told that Facebook had reviewed the video before ruling it did not breach the site's 'community standards'.

    'I was going through Facebook and I saw this video,' said the 23-year-old from Tilbury, Essex.

    'I clicked on it, watched it and I was disgusted.

    'I reported it to Facebook, it took five or six hours for them to get back to me, and they said it was perfectly fine to have it on there.

    'It made me feel sick, I was angry, I tried to find a phone number to speak to them but I couldn't. I was outraged.'

    The video shows liquid, understood to be petrol, being poured over the kitten as it lies in a bucket before the liquid is set alight.

    The kitten manages to tip the bucket over and free itself, and attempts to run away in a ball of flames.

    As the cat rolls on the floor to try to extinguish the fire, more liquid is poured over it, while the men stand and watch.

    One then nudges the barely moving kitten with his foot, while the other tips the rest of the liquid over the animal.

    After the flames are finally put out, the camera zooms in on the helpless animal as it gasps for air, before the clip ends with the sight of a plastic bag being put over it.

    After years of arming and supporting al-Qaeda/foreign fighters/ISIS in places like Egypt, Libya, and Syria, it looks like the powers-that-be may just get what they want in Syria. Their attempt at duplicating in Syria the results achieved in Egypt and Libya stalled; they were not allowed, this time, to fly as a supporting air force for terrorist elements. The elements that compose ISIS and al-Nusra in Syria were initially, and for a long time thereafter, aided by NATO (chiefly the U.S., France, and Turkey). Report after report surfaced as to the allegiance of these entities, that there were elements of al-Qaeda and other extremists, yet the media and the people did not take notice. As ISIS' power grew within northern Syria they became emboldened; this wasn't about freeing the Syrian people from a dictator, this was about establishing a Caliphate. ISIS is essentially al-Qaeda renamed... they fly the same flag, and early in their campaign against Assad they pledged allegiance to al-Qaeda. Much like how the majority of the recent destruction and looting in Ferguson, Missouri was done by those that did not live there, these individuals are primarily foreign. Anyone with a room temperature IQ could surmise that these elements would spill across the Syrian border into northern Iraq... and this has happened. Whether or not this was anticipated by the globalist manipulators is unknown but rather likely, as it has been long suspected that post-occupied Iraq would be split into thirds.



    Now, with the death of one journalist, we have calls for the destruction of ISIS. Where were these calls when this group was rampaging through Syria? As Stalin once said; "The death of one man is a tragedy, the death of millions is a statistic".



    Now there is talk of arming yet another group, the Kurds in northern Iraq. When are we going to learn? When are we going to clean up after ourselves? When will we hold people accountable? I have not heard ONE TIME someone on the lamestream media call out the Obama government for their support of terrorists across the middle east. And, to this day, those in the Bush administration run free; never mind the fact it was their deceit and lies that paved the path for where we now find ourselves. Never mind the thousands of American lives those lies cost or the several hundred thousand Iraqi lives lost. And for what???

    This planet, at this time, appears to be so out of control I find it hard to bother mustering the energy to post on this blog anymore. Where would you even begin? Even now, with all that I have written so far, I have no clue how articulate it is. So I guess I'll end this part by saying that those that comprise the globalist power are smarter than us - they are going to end up getting exactly what they want with Syria... and with ISIS. They once again, have a boogeyman [a real boogeyman] that they can use to their ends - just look at all the talk now of possible ISIS attacks on American soil. I am not opposed to fighting ISIS, but I am opposed to fighting ISIS and letting those that aided and abetted them continue, unaccountable for their actions.

    Again I ask, when are we going to learn and grow up as a people? The masses don't want to be accountable or responsible, and instead, want to believe in benevolent politics and politicians or use them solely as a place to lay blame when things are less than good. The founders of the United States believed the citizenry needed to remain intelligent on all matters - and by and large we have utterly failed - it was supposed to be our responsibility to safeguard what should have been our way of life.

    What's more, the world itself seems to be on the brink of spinning into complete chaos:

    NATO [yes, they are so credible] claims that Russian artillery is firing at Ukrainian forces.

    The U.S. and Ukraine believe a Russian convoy could be sneaking in Russian forces [seems absurd to me]

    Foreign envoy is killed in Ukraine.

    This one states Russia has moved artillery INTO Ukraine...

    Anybody else get the feeling like someone is really fired up about pressing Putin's buttons?

    U.S. military brass state ISIS must be attacked in Syria. [Here it is folks...]

    Iran sends tank units into northern Iraq to fight ISIS... [and they are fighting alongside the Kurds!]

    And there is so much more... You have the madness going on between Israel and Gaza; I am so sick and tired of seeing pro-Israel commercials it makes me ill when I attempt to get a small dose of lamestream media like Fox News - they have that bullshit on repeat there. Here's an example of the one-sided spin spun on networks like Fox News:



    These commercials then talk about one-sided "war crimes":



    It's a known fact that Gaza is a small place that has a high density population. Fighting in Gaza is akin to having a fist fight in a closet. Nearly two million people live in Gaza - there is over five thousand people per square kilometer. Besides, does the photo they use in the advert above look like armed men in armed conflict? No. Guys standing casually with their weapons down - the photo is clearly used out of context.

    Why doesn't these commercials, if they are so concerned about the safety of children, show this type of footage:



    There really is a war on for your mind; start using it. 

    Then if you think what's taking place in Syria is bad, with sixty or so journalists missing (as touted by the media itself), what about Mexico??? Mexico claims that 22,322 people have vanished into thin air since 2006. Do the math; that's nearly 2,500 people gone, on average, in any given year since 2006. And this isn't including the known murders... some of which are like this:


    I don't know about you, but some of the stuff taking place down south is on par, or rivals, the actions of ISIS and its ilk.

    Next up Africa. There are reports of American biological warfare researchers operating in the areas of the current Ebola outbreak. And as always, there is continued, under-reported, conflict still raging in central Africa.


    At this point, I don't even have the energy to go into more details... such as the events in Ferguson, Missouri, India and Pakistan, Japan, Korea, China... and so on. And then, beyond that, is everything else - the environment, greed, economies on the brink, treatment of animals and wildlife, etc.

    When you find yourself wading neck deep in all this stuff it begins to just sap the life out of you... and this is one reason why my being active on here wanes at times.

    The Kardashev scale is a method of measuring a civilization's technical advancement; we aren't even at level ONE and we have a planet in absolute crisis [if we grow up we might reach level one within 100-200 years). We have untold environmental destruction taking place for the sake of the few (your less than 1%). We have growing poverty, strife, and war. We have what may very well be the SIXTH MASS EXTINCTION event - only this time the cause is looking to be human in origin.

    Yet, with all of this, there are no signs of yielding - it's almost as if nobody can really be bothered with taking a step back and examining things. The people that have kids are the ones that really perplex me... and we all know people keep pumping out the kids (and for some reason it's usually the people that then struggle with supporting them that keep churning them out).

    If you want to know just how dire things are among us, post something relevant to these issues on your Facebook and gauge the reception it receives; follow this by something trivial such as a photo of a child in your family - you will see. Clearly, the vast majority of people would rather bury their heads in the sand, so long there is ample things to distract oneself with... they can't even smell the smoldering smoke. It's this reason why even the least significant change cannot transpire.

    Chicago A Top Terror Target; Ominous Tweet Connects ISIS Threat In City


    John Dodge
    CBS Chicago
    August 22, 2014

    Over the past six years, Chicago has become a top potential target for international terrorists, a top security expert said Friday, making the posting of a veiled threat by Islamic radicals on Twitter a higher cause for concern.

    “Many organizations refer to Chicago as Obama Town,” said CBS 2 security expert Ross Rice, a former top FBI agent in Chicago. Under President Obama, the U.S. took out Osama bin Laden, and used repeated drone strikes to weaken terror networks.

    In the meantime, the U.S. government on Friday issued a security bulletin to all U.S. law enforcement in light of the overall threat posed by Islamic State, commonly known as ISIS or ISIL.

    The ominous post on Twitter, purportedly from somebody connected with Islamic State, shows a photo of the Old Republic Building, 307 N. Michigan Ave., in Chicago and the White House.

    The text reads:

    #AmessagefromISIStoUS
    We are in your state
    We are in your cities
    We are in your streets

    You are our goals anywhere.

    Where has everyone been? Obama and other NATO nations have been arming and supporting these groups for years; they used them in Egypt, they used them in Libya, and they tried to use them in Syria. And it is not like this has been kept covert; Romney stated himself, during his campaign in 2012, that he would continue to aid "rebels" (uh - terrorists) that were fighting the Syrian government. 


    What is it going to take for people to finally wake up?

    Experts plead for Australian food manufacturers to reject palm oil

    Apes, elephants, rhinos and tigers at dire risk if unsustainable palm oil plantations allowed in Sumatran reserve

    August 22, 2014

    One of the world’s leading orangutan experts has called on Australian food manufacturers to speed up efforts to ditch unsustainable palm oil, warning that the situation “has never been so desperate” for the threatened primates.

    Dr Ian Singleton, head of the Sumatran Orangutan Conservation Program, said the apes, with the Sumatran elephant, rhino and tiger, were facing a “major extinction event” due to plans to open up a critical reserve for logging and construction.

    The vast Leuser ecosystem in northern Sumatra is the only place on Earth where orangutans, elephants, rhinos and tigers co-exist.

    Despite this, the regional Aceh government has approved a plan to allow roads, palm oil plantations, logging and mining in the ecosystem. Construction work has started, despite objections put forward by the central Indonesian government.

    Singleton warned the situation was “dire” for the threatened species, warning that the development plan would completely wipe out the Sumatran rhino, and leave just a few hundred orangutans.

    There are an estimated 6,700 Sumatran orangutans, primarily in the dense rainforests on the north of the island. But their numbers have been severely depleted by forest clearing, largely for palm oil plantations. This has led to apes wandering on to newly established farms, where they are regularly beaten, tortured and killed.

    Singleton, with Zoos Victoria, is urging companies based in Australia to commit to certified sustainable palm oil, which is not sourced via the destruction of orangutan habitat. Palm oil is used in many products, from food to toothpaste.

    For those that can be bothered; start reading labels and stop buying products that use palm oil.

    Japanese dolphin slaughter to resume in September...


    Bryan Douebleu

    August 14, 2014

    In seventeen days, September 1, 2014, the capture and slaughter of dolphins off Japan will begin once again.

    The following is borrowed from Sea Shepherd's Cove Guardian page:

    The slaughter of 20,000 dolphins, porpoises, and small whales occurs in Japan each year. Starting on September 1st and usually continuing through March of the next year, fishermen herd whole families of small cetaceans into a shallow bay and mercilessly stab and drown them to death.

    This annual slaughter of dolphins was virtually unknown until 2003 when Sea Shepherd globally released covertly-obtained film and photographs of the now infamous bloody “Cove” in a village called Taiji. Starting in 2010 and continuing to this day, Sea Shepherd has an ongoing presence of volunteers standing watch on site at the Cove. They are The Cove Guardians.

    With your help, we will continue to pressure Japan to end this cruel and destructive slaughter of dolphins. Because we are passionate, dedicated, and committed it may take time, but determination will win the day eventually for the dolphins at Taiji. We invite you to explore this site and support our efforts!


    In order for something to change it must fist be squarely faced. YOU must be aware and conscious of it. Inform yourself... even if it makes you uncomfortable, and then continue to spread that awareness.
