Now Is A Time Of Great Rejoicing - A Poem by M.N. Hopkins


Now Is A Time Of Great Rejoicing

Now is a time of great rejoicing within your realm, although few will see it that way.

A small group seeks a peaceful and equitable lives way for many within your human communities and meet with much resistance from the forces of the old and outmoded ways.

A clash of ideas results and an unwillingness to bend or to adapt to a new world that is coming.

A new world in which all are respected and cared for. 

A world in which justice again shows her benevolent face.

A world only dreamed of till now, but now activated and formed by a few whom have now become many.

The old dream of freedom culminates into a new expression in the days ahead.

No longer will the old ordering be served.

Now is a time of great and new possibilities for living within human community.

Those who have betrayed their Lands, their families, their friendships will be exposed and no more will they reign upon your planet.

New methods of organizing human community will be expressed as the old ways dissolve.

Justice and freedom will be the norm and Mankind will again flourish upon the Land.

A cry will go out to join us in our forming of a new creative endeavor in which imaginary values dissolve and reality comes to the forefront of human community.

A flash of energy ignites the transformation. 

A flash of such power, never before seen.

An eruption and then a calm.

A natural calm that overcomes the fearful creations of your past.

A past asleep, a future now awakened.

A people in love again with each other as well as all life withing your realm.

The animals will know having sensed the change in Man. 

Man will come to understand his place within the structure of human living.

No longer will greed and violence rule.

Now, is the time of the human,  plus God joined as one.

Heavenly creatures more in place in their human bodies with more feeling,  plus more senses to be used in the expression called,  daily living.

Now, a time awaits.

A time of living in loving kindness in shared community with all living entities upon your planet.

So swift a change will it be that Man will wonder how could he have lived in such a brutal way with his own kind as well as all the kinds that inhabit your world.

A great awakening, a great transformation, a great wave of energy, an explosion of the old that releases a fresh new energy for Mans' use.

A sense of order, a sense of reason, a sense of justice returns to Man as he awakens from the nightmare of his past.

A forward looking from the Now of Creation.

A happiness, a love to be expressed.

No longer denied, now accepted and released into your human communities.

The best of your humanities comes forth as the worst retreats into the dark abyss of its creation.

A new day, a new way, a new existence dawns upon Mankind.

That day is near and nearer than you might ever expect from your human perspective.

In To-day’s World Would This Be A Voice Crying In The Wilderness? - A Guest Post by Michael Brine

Jiddu Krishnamurti – 11th May 1895 – 17th Feb. 1986. 

In to-day’s world would this be a voice crying in the wilderness? 


Jiddu Krishnamurti – 11th May 1895 – 17th Feb. 1986. 

His Life and Work – An Overview. 


Krishnamurti was born in Madanapalle, a small town in south India. He and his brother were adopted in their youth by Dr. Annie Besant, then president of the Theosophical Society. Dr. Besant and others proclaimed that Krishnamurti was to be a world teacher whose coming the Theosophical Society had predicted. To prepare the world for this coming, a world wide organization called the Order of the Star in the East was formed and the young Krishnamurti was made its head.


In 1929, however, Krishnamurti renounced the role that he was expected to play, dissolved the Order with its huge following, and returned the money and property that had been donated for this work.


From then, for nearly sixty years until his death on 17th February 1986, he travelled throughout the world talking to large audiences and to individuals about the need for a radical change in mankind.

Krishnamurti is regarded globally as one of the greatest thinkers and religious teachers of all time. He did not expound any philosophy or religion, but rather talked of the things that concern all of us in our everyday lives, of the problems of living in modern society with its violence and corruption, of the individual’s search for security and happiness, and the need for mankind to free itself from inner burdens of fear, anger, hurt, and sorrow. He explained with great precision the subtle workings of the human mind, and pointed for the need for bringing to our daily life a deeply meditative and spiritual quality.

Krishnamurti belonged to no religious organization, sect or country, nor did he subscribe to any school of political or ideological thought. On the contrary, he maintained that these are the very factors that divide human beings and bring about conflict and war. He reminded his listeners again and again that we are all human beings first and not Hindus, Muslims or Christians, that we are like the rest of humanity and are not different from one another. He asked that we tread lightly on this earth without destroying ourselves or the environment. He communicated to his listeners a deep sense of respect for nature. His teachings transcend man-made belief systems, nationalistic sentiment and sectarianism. At the same time, they gave new meaning and direction to mankind’s search for truth. His teaching, besides being relevant to the modern age, is timeless and universal.

Krishnamurti spoke not as a guru but as a friend, and his talks and discussions are based not on tradition-based knowledge but on his own insights into the human mind and his vision of the sacred, so he always communicates a sense of freshness and directness although the essence of his message remained unchanged over the years. When he addressed large audiences, people felt that Krishnamurti was talking to each of them personally, addressing his or her particular problem. In his private interviews, he was a compassionate teacher, listening attentively to the man or women who came to him in sorrow, and encouraging them to heal themselves threw their own understanding. Religious schools found that his words through new light on traditional concepts. Krishnamurti took on the challenge of modern scientists and psychologists and went with them step by step discussed their theories and sometimes enabled them to discern the limitations of those theories.


If ever there was a message that needs to be heard in to-days world it is his.

As an aside I lived and worked in Malaysia for several years in the late 1950s in my banking career. Along with several others we founded a Lodge of the Theosophical Society in that country, and I can say without reservation that we held Krishnamurti in the highest regard.

Thank you,
Michael.

It Is Time To Re-engage on The Autism Epidemic By Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN)

It Is Time To Re-engage on The Autism Epidemic

By Rep. Dan Burton (R-IN)

Food Freedom News,   April 28, 2012


On March 30, 2012, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released their latest figures on the number of autistic kids in America. The numbers are sobering. Thirty years ago it was estimated that autism affected only 1 out of every 10,000 individuals. The latest CDC figures put the number at 1 in 88 American children (one in 54 boys); a 550 percent jump in cases since 2000. We are literally in the midst of a nationwide epidemic.

In the late 90s, my grandson was diagnosed with autism. Like other family members who have been touched by autism, I wanted to know more about this condition. During my tenure as Chairman of the House Committee on Government Reform (1997-2002) and the subcommittee on Human Rights & Wellness (2003-2004), I held no fewer than 20 hearings examining the state of federal scientific research into the cause of and treatment for autism. I am proud of the work we did to raise awareness of autism and draw more attention to the need for research; and I am firmly convinced that the work we did back then laid the groundwork for the historic Combating Autism Act and for the $1 Billion in Federal research into autism that is happening today.

Unfortunately, a great deal of misinformation has been thrown around in public and private about the Committee’s focus on mercury in medicines as a possible factor in the autism epidemic. I’m not a scientist, but the Committee heard from many credible scientists and experts who are convinced that mercury is a contributing factor; and the theory is no less worthy of exploration than the theories being propounded today that the pregnancy weight of the mother or the age of the father at conception influences whether a child becomes autistic. When you have no idea what is causing a disease, policymakers and scientists should never be afraid to investigate any plausible theory. In fact, researching possible environmental factors is a central component of today’s research on autism.

Regrettably, lost in the controversy over mercury are two other issues the Committee explored. First, in the 1980s, Congress created the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VCIP) to shield medical professionals and vaccine manufacturers from liability if an individual suffered an injury from a vaccine. The compensation fund, which currently contains over $3 Billion, was created to protect the vaccine supply and to insure that all who were injured by a vaccine received compensation in a no-fault, compassionate and easy to use manner.


Congress intended for families to be compensated quickly and fairly; and when the evidence was close as to whether or not the medical condition in question was vaccine related or not the court should always err in favor of the injured. Our investigations found that over the years the system had broken; and what was supposed to be quick and fair became slow and contentious. There has been no Congressional oversight of VICP in the last decade, and the system has not improved; if anything it has gotten worse. It is time for Congress to revisit this issue and consider substantially reforming this program. For the public to trust vaccine policies, it is vitally important to have a National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program that is efficient, effective, and fair to those who may have suffered injury from vaccines.

The other issue we dealt with is how do we help the millions of individuals and families afflicted with this disease. Autism has no cure and it is not a life-threatening disease. That means that the autistic children of today will be the autistic adults and autistic seniors of tomorrow. Our nation is ill prepared to deal with the complex challenges posed by a generation of autistic individuals. There have been far too many stories in the media of police, firefighters, and teachers ill-prepared to cope with an autistic individual and tragedy has resulted. We need to change that. We need prominent and influential leaders to step forward and spark a national debate on autism.

That is why I introduced the “White House Conference on Autism Act of 2011” (H.R. 3489). It will require the President of the United States to convene, no later than December 31, 2012, a White House Conference on Autism charged with developing policy recommendations on ways to address the autism epidemic and its impact on Americans. I hope to see this bill signed into law before I retire from Congress at the end of this year. Although I am retiring from Congress, I am not retiring from the fight against autism, because I firmly believe as a nation we have a collective responsibility to do everything we can to not only stop the further spread of this disease but to help the millions of children, adults and families afflicted by it.
Rep. Burton (R-IN) has chaired the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform from 1997-2002.

The Canary Party writes:

Congressman Burton will need all of our help to accomplish these goals. 

Congressman Burton is no longer the chair of the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, though he remains an active member.  He is requesting that Chairman Darrell Issa hold hearings on the VICP.  However, given all the competing interests in Washington, we need to support Congressman Burton’s leadership by showing broad community support for these hearings.

We need every single one of you to go to both Facebook pages below and express your support for hearings and a White House Conference on Autism.

http://www.facebook.com/Oversight

http://www.facebook.com/oversightdems

We specifically want the following:

The U.S. House of Representatives Oversight and Government Reform Committee should initiate promised hearings as soon as possible on the failure of federal health agencies to appropriately respond to the autism epidemic. It has been ten years since this Committee examined the role of the federal authorities in the autism epidemic.  We can think of no other instance where any comparable epidemic has gone on for so long without Congressional oversight.

You can cut and paste, you can write about your personal concerns, or you can vent (politely, please), but be sure to post!

This is step one of a month-long campaign to bring Congressional attention to these issues.  Feel free to help daily if you can. And please spread the word to anyone else who can help!

EARTH - One Video That You Will Enjoy Seeing

Patriots or Profiteers? - The Cost of War



April 26, 2012

This week, the top military contractor companies announced their first-quarter profits for 2012. Their profits continue to grow while they push Washington, D.C. to protect their budgets at the expense of the rest of us, and while they break the law for financial gain. George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and FDR wouldn't tolerate this kind of outrage. They knew that patriots don't behave this way, but profiteers do.

Episodes 4 and 5 of the Adventures of The Terrorist Grannies of the UK



EPISODE FOUR: FOR YOUR OWN PERSONAL PROTECTION

Sylvia and I take a walk around the perimeter of Menwith Hill and find ourselves accused of forming an unlicensed procession!  Coinciding with a small organised CND demonstration at the entrance to the base, our walk took the police’s interest as being potential ‘splinter group’ activity.  This episode serves as an example to the everyday erosion of basic civil liberties which peace campaigners, in particular, find themselves regularly challenging.

EPISODE FIVE: A THREAT TO THE GOVERNMENT, THANK GOD. 


In this episode we hear Helen talk openly about her previous direct actions; including one which resulted with her being issued with a lifetime ban from the City of London… but the question is does she adhere to it?

To learn more about these not so dangerous old ladies and to show your support, please visit them at this website:

Major New Issues with Vaccines Are Surfacing by Greg Davidson

 



Major New Issues with Vaccines Are Surfacing

By Greg Davidson

Food Freedom News,   April 26, 2012

Bill Gates spoke to Sanjay Gupta on CNN in February 2011, saying that skeptics of vaccines are killing children.  But 2011 was to be a year in which Gates’ own polio vaccine program in India paralyzed 47,500 children and those paralyzed died at twice the rate of those infected by wild polio.  Gates’ eradication program has two problems.

First, it is predicated on a scientific falsehood, since it’s been known for ten years that polio cannot be eradicated, not since the biotech industry developed a synthetic polio virus.  In the latest issue of the Indian Journal of Medical Ethics, Neetu Vashisht and Jacob Puliyel at St. Stephens Hospital in Delhi explain:
“The charade about polio eradication and the great savings it will bring has persisted to date. It is a paradox that while the director general of WHO, Margret Chan, and Bill Gates are trying to muster support for polio eradication (22) it has been known to the scientific community, for over 10 years, that eradication of polio is impossible. This is because in 2002 scientists had synthesised a chemical called poliovirus in a test-tube with the empirical formula C332,652H492,388N98,245O131,196P7, 501S2,340. It has been demonstrated that by positioning the atoms in sequence, a particle can emerge with all the properties required for its proliferation and survival in nature (23, 24).” [Emphasis added.]

“Wimmer writes that the test-tube synthesis of poliovirus has wiped out any possibility of eradicating poliovirus in the future. Poliovirus cannot be declared extinct because the sequence of its genome is known and modern biotechnology allows it to be resurrected at any time in vitro. Man can thus never let down his guard against poliovirus. Indeed the 18-year-old global eradication campaign for polioviruses will have to be continued in some format forever. The long promised ‘infinite’ monetary benefits from ceasing to vaccinate against poliovirus will never be achieved (24). The attraction that ‘eradication’ has for policy makers will vanish once this truth is widely known.”

The second is that the synthetic polio virus created in biotech labs is more virulent, and more likely to kill than the natural one.

The biotech industry has created other new synthetic viruses.  Pertussis is another.  There, too, the world is seeing increasing cases of pertussis among the vaccinated, and in fact, the diseases is spreading among them.  Of particular note is the relation to a new strain of bacteria.  Is this also a biotech synthetic virus?
“Dr. Fritz Mooi, a well-known Dutch scientist who has been studying mutations of the pertussis bacteria for 15 years, said a more virulent strain of bacteria is contributing to outbreaks.”
Meanwhile, measles vaccines are showing the same propensity to cause the disease they are supposed to prevent. In Largest measles outbreak in the Americas since 2000: Quebec Ongoing Epidemic, Philippe Belanger, Ministèr of Social Services in Québec, Montréal, stated:
“While this still ongoing outbreak feeds largely on unvaccinated individuals, the high proportion of cases who received two doses raises concerns on vaccine effectiveness. However, the take-home message is still to get vaccinated.”
Gaia Health takes exception with that last sentence: “Belanger overstates the facts. In some areas, as demonstrated by De Serres’ study, more of the vaccinated have come down with measles.”
Dr. Gaston De Serres, an infectious diseases expert with the Quebec’s public health agency, is the lead author of another study, which shows that 52 of 98 measles cases in teens who’d been fully vaccinated, reports Gaia Health.
“Exactly why getting vaccinated is the ‘take-home message’ doesn’t appear to be explained,” says Gaia Health. “As is so often the case in vaccination issues,  the need for vaccines is taken on faith.”
Based on an unpublished WHO study on measles risk among the vaccinated and unvaccinated, Mr. Belanger should not be surprised that those who have been vaccinated for measles would be contracting measles. In fact, it should be expected.
Studies over many years have shown vaccines causing the very diseases they claim to prevent, and even causing more diseases.  But the new issues with vaccines extend beyond even these disturbing facts:
·      Vaccines for measles, pertussis and polio, are, at a minimum, not preventing the diseases they are supposed to have ensured against;
·      In some cases, such as polio, the vaccines are causing diseases that they were supposed to prevent and a more virulent strain;
·      At least with polio, the disease is now ineradicable because the biotech industry has created a synthetic strain (and this may apply to many other disease viruses the biotech/vaccine industry is working on); and
·      The new synthetic strain used in the polio vaccine is more virulent, making vaccination more dangerous than contracting the natural disease.  Is this true of the other vaccines?
Obviously, it is quite serious that vaccines are causing diseases and in the case of polio, introducing more deadly strains. But these are not the limit of the serious new concerns with the vaccines.   Three other issues now claim attention:

Edible Flu Vaccine Testing in Corn Crops by Bryan Salvage

I have often thought that the Pharma industry and Monsanto would find ways to deliver their vaccines and drugs in indirect ways without consumer knowledge.  It is probably already being done in many of the food products we eat.  This is probably one of the reasons for the resistance by Big Food to label GMO and why Monsanto has now threatened to sue the State of Vermont if they pass a bill to label GMO ingredients in food products.


These above mentioned industries extort and threaten to get their way and do not wish transparency in any form.   If people knew the truth of their products and business practices then there would be a monumental move toward health giving and organic food and alternative medical suppliments and procedures.  

 

Edible Flu Vaccine Testing in Corn Crops


by Bryan Salvage 



AMES, IOWA — Iowa State University researchers are putting flu vaccines into the genetic makeup of corn, which may someday allow pigs and humans to get a flu vaccination simply by eating corn or corn products.


"We're trying to figure out which genes from the swine influenza virus to incorporate into corn so those genes, when expressed, would produce protein," said Hank Harris, professor in animal science and one of the researchers on the project. "When the pig consumes that corn, it would serve as a vaccine."
This collaborative effort project involves Mr. Harris and Brad Bosworth, an affiliate associate professor of animal science working with pigs, and Kan Wang, a professor in agronomy, who is developing the vaccine traits in the corn.

According to the researchers, the corn vaccine would also work in humans when they eat corn or even corn flakes, corn chips, tortillas or anything that contains corn,


Mr. Harris said. The research is funded by a grant from Iowa State University's Plant Sciences Institute, and is their Biopharmaceuticals and Bioindustrials Research Initiative.

If the research goes well, the corn vaccine may be possible in five to seven years. In the meantime, the team is trying to expedite the process. "While we're waiting for Wang to produce the corn, we are starting initial experiments in mice to show that the vaccine might induce an immune response," Mr. Bosworth said.

Mr. Harris said the team still needs more answers. "The big question is whether or not these genes will work when given orally through corn," he added. "That is the thing we've still got to determine."

Stability and safety are several advantages to the corn vaccine. Once the corn with the vaccine is grown, it can be stored for long-term without losing its potency, researchers claim. If a swine flu virus breaks out, the corn could be shipped to the location to try to vaccinate animals and humans in the area quickly. Because corn grain is used as food and feed, there is no need for extensive vaccine purification, which can be an expensive process.

New Study on Monsanto Corn Suggests GMO Trees Could Devastate Forest Ecosystems
By Geobear7
Food Freedom News,   April 24, 2012

Some trees are being genetically engineered to contain the Bt toxin,” notes Anne Peterman of Stop GE Trees.  “This could be a tremendous threat to forest ecosystem soils, in which beneficial fungi are a key component of the forest ecosystem.”

“ The feds have allowed seven southeastern states to plant GM forests. See Alien Forest, Alien Ocean, Alien Sky; and watch the award-winning documentary, “A Silent Forest: The Growing Threat, Genetically Engineered Trees” (2005, 46 mins) which details the appalling effects allowed by the Monsanto-owned federal government.

International Business Times


Bioengineering agricultural giant Monsanto has touted the safety of genetically modified crops, but a new study has found that insecticide-containing corn can be harmful to the overall health of soil ecosystems.
Genetically modified corn has been linked to a decrease in a subterranean fungus that forms a symbiotic bond with plant roots, allowing them to draw in more nutrients and water from the surrounding soil in exchange for carbon.

Researchers at Portland State University conducted a study to examine the effects of corn genetically engineered with the bacteria-derived insecticidal toxin, Bacillus thuringiensis, or Bt, on growth of arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF).

AMF is important for the overall health and fertility of soil ecosystems, and was found to form less bonds with the roots of Bt corn than with non-Bt corn.

“Because these fungi rely on a plant host for nutrition and reproduction, they may be sensitive to genetic changes within a plant, such as insect-resistant Bt corn,” Tanya Cheeke, a PhD student in biology at Portland State, told the American Journal of Botany.

Cheeke conducted the study as part of her doctoral research into the impact of genetically modified crops on soil ecosystems.

“What makes our study unique is that we evaluated AMF colonization in 14 different lines of Bt and non-Bt corn under consistent experimental conditions in a greenhouse using locally collected agricultural field soil as the AMF inoculum,” Cheeke told AJB.

Cheeke planted corn seeds containing the Bt gene and without it into soil containing AMF to simulate agricultural conditions on modern industrial farms.

Cheeke also tested AMF growth with other crops in soil formerly planted with both Bt and non-Bt corn. With soybeans planted in both soils, AMF root bonding was not harmed, leading Cheeke to conclude that the Bt gene was not directly toxic to AMF, but that its only known damage is to root bonding with Bt corn.

According to Cheeke, in 2011, 88 percent of corn cultivated in the U.S. was genetically modified with insecticides like Bt.

TEDxNewWallStreet with Ellen Brown - From Scarcity to Abundance: Re-imagini...



From Scarcity to Abundance: Re-imagining Money
by grtv
April 25, 2012
Speaker Bio:

Ellen Brown is author of Web of Debt, and serves as president of the Public Banking Institute.
Description of Talk:

As a journalist, Ellen's passion for research led her to ask a simple question about where our money and banking come from: Why do we repeat the cycle of privatizing bank profits in the good times, and publicly owning their losses in the bad times?
Ellen's answer may surprise you: Throughout history, publicly-owned banks have coined money far cheaper than relying on governments to indebt themselves to private banks through a central bank like the Federal Reserve.

Ellen challenges the inevitability and safety of a money system dominated solely by privately-owned banks.
More on Ellen Brown:

Ellen Brown developed her research skills as an attorney practicing civil litigation in Los Angeles. In Web of Debt, her latest book, she turns those skills to an analysis of the Federal Reserve and “the money trust.” She shows how this private cartel has usurped the power to create money from the people themselves, and how we the people can get it back.

Brown developed an interest in the developing world and its problems while living abroad for eleven years in Kenya, Honduras, Guatemala and Nicaragua. She returned to practicing law when she was asked to join the legal team of a popular Tijuana healer with an innovative cancer therapy, who was targeted by the chemotherapy industry in the 1990s. That experience produced her book Forbidden Medicine, which traces the suppression of natural health treatments to the same corrupting influences that have captured the money system

Terriorist Grandmothers in the UK Take To The Screens in a Documentary Web Series - Episode 1 to 3



Terrorist Grandmothers” take to the screens in documentary web series"

Global Research Canada,  April 24, 2012

Disarming Grandmothers, a 31 part web series has just been released by independent documentary filmmaker, Claire Pope.  For nearly 6 years Claire has been following the lives of veteran peace campaigners Helen John and Sylvia Boyes, who found themselves on trial for terrorism when they trespassed into a U.S Spy Base in Yorkshire.  Concerned about the Government’s frequent attempts to clamp down on legitimate protest, the Hertfordshire based filmmaker juggled various day jobs to embark on a personal journey, uncovering the bitter irony of a law which protects spying on a global scale yet makes terrorists out of peaceful protesters.

“You cannot leave a bad law unbroken;  
you have to break it until it is taken away” Helen

Disarming Grandmothers shines a light on the modern day peace movement through the eyes of two extraordinary women, who with their humour, spirit and eccentricity enchant you into their world.  Helen, a passionate Feminist, Atheist and one of the founders of the Greenham Common Women’s Peace Camp was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2005.  She has strong and often controversial views; believing in the importance of direct action to raise publicity.  Sylvia on the other hand is a Quaker who shies away from media attention and chooses to campaign on a multitude of levels, from handing out leaflets and petitions to Helen’s preferred method of choice, direct action.  Despite their personal differences, impending visits from the bailiffs for non payment of fines, arrests and jail time, the women remain defiant in their attempts to work together to bring about a more peaceful world.  There are not many grandmothers who awake at 4a.m to scout out a radar station, board US military planes and who lay down in front of nuclear truck convoys; here are two of them. 

“In times such as these, perhaps the prisons ought to be full of dissenters.” Sylvia

Disarming Grandmothers was inspired by an article about Helen and Sylvia’s ‘serious organised crime’ in The Independent.  Believing this was a story she had to tell, Claire quickly became a ‘one woman band’ using an observational style of filmmaking to capture the women’s complex lives.  Steven Keevil, a Media College Lecturer and friend from University, worked with Claire to help transform 125 hours of rushes into 31 x 3 minute bite sized episodes.  Excited by the potential of the Internet to provide opportunities for self broadcast and to attract global audiences, the pair hopes to encourage discussion, debate and to raise awareness of the peace movement.  Disarming Grandmothers launched with an opening trilogy on 12th April and with new episodes being released every Thursday over a 6 month period, there are ample opportunities for people to see a slice of protest life that they might otherwise have never known existed. 

“Here were two people putting their freedom on the line to bring about positive change, I couldn’t ignore that”.  Claire

We Become Silent - The Last Days Of Health Freedom



International award-winning filmmaker Kevin P. Miller of Well TV announced the release of a new documentary about the threat to medical freedom of choice. 'We Become Silent: The Last Days of Health Freedom' details the ongoing attempts by multinational pharmaceutical interests and giant food companies — in concert with the WTO, the WHO and others — to limit the public's access to herbs, vitamins and other therapies. 'We Become Silent' is narrated by Dame Judi Dench, the noted UK actress who has won multiple Golden Globe awards, an Oscar, and a Tony for her on-stage work, in addition to dozens of other honors throughout her prestigious career.



Julian Assange's The World Tomorrow Talk Show - Episode 2 with Slavoj Zizek & David Horowitz



April 24, 2012

Slavoj Zizek and David Horowitz are the guests for the second episode of Julian Assange's interview show, "The World Tomorrow". "Intellectual superstar" Slavoj Zizek is a philosopher, psychoanalyst and cultural commentator. David Horowitz is a renowned stalwart of hardline conservative American political thought and an unrepentant Zionist.

The tone of the conversation between Zizek, Horowitz and Assange alternated between combative, personal and good-humoured. The topics covered jumped backwards and forwards at a wildfire pace, to include Palestinians and Nazis, Joseph Stalin and Barack Obama, the decline of Europe and the tension between liberty and equality, amongst many others

WEAPONIZATION OF THE FOOD SYSTEM: Genetically Engineered Maize Threatens Nepal and the Himalayan Region by Dr. Arun Shrivastava

 
WEAPONIZATION OF THE FOOD SYSTEM: Genetically Engineered Maize Threatens Nepal and the Himalayan Region
 
by Dr. Arun Shrivastava
 
Global Research Canada,   April 24, 2012
 
Not only Nepal but the entire Himalayan region is under threat. Genetically Engineered seeds are weapons of mass culling. The Nepalese Government’s foolishness in inviting USAID and Monsanto for ‘agricultural development’ through genetically engineered maize will destroy the quality of its livestock and humans. The contamination of its fragile ecosystem will be in perpetuity and irreversible.

Monsanto has close strategic ties with the U.S. Department of Defense [DoD, which should actually be renamed as Department of War] and the USAID is actually a division of the US-DoD.
USAID’s current administrator Dr Rajiv Shah was top honcho of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and served the US administration as chief scientist in the Department of Agriculture [US-DoA]. US-DoA was a prime mover in the development of the "Terminator Seed" and patent holder. Terminator was later transferred to Monsanto. 

USAID’s Economic Growth Advisor Rave Aulakh was lying when she said “We have been trying to help the Nepalese farmer to increase his total production of the food crops,” making him “a little bit more competitive by bringing his costs down,”[1]. They are all straight-faced liars.
Independent research by agricultural scientists after nearly two decades of experience with GE crops in the USA now clearly shows that these seeds neither increase yield, nor lower the cost of production, nor enhance nutrition. In fact there is incontrovertible evidence that GE crops disrupt soil nutrient balance and prevent uptake of certain critical nutrients by the roots. Moreover, GE crops contaminate non-crops from cross-pollination.

The sole purpose of genetic engineering of seeds is control over seed supply and global food availability. This weaponization of food system is being implemented by a few American and European multinational firms.

Bill Gates and Depopulation 

Gates now talks power politics:
“The world faces a clear choice. If we invest relatively modest amounts, many more poor farmers will be able to feed their families. If we don’t, one in seven people will continue living needlessly on the edge of starvation.” [2] What he says before and after those lines is even better and what he doesn’t know is actually the best of Bill Gates’ philanthropy. He may have founded Microsoft but Bill would not be hired as a janitor or toilet cleaner by the world’s top agriculture scientists. So this scoundrel can rant what he believes in and the media scoundrel can go on printing what this scoundrel thinks.
The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation purchased 500,000 shares of Monsanto in 2010 and Bill Gates has openly spoken in favor of vigorously promoting (i) genetically engineered crops and (ii) vaccination, the two silent weapons of mass culling. Gates’ main occupation these days is to take over global food and seed supply through a monopoly of few genetically engineered food and seeds firms. [3]

The US Government’s Global Food Security baloney is a sinister plot because it is administered by the USAID. Note that the US regulatory authorities have never regulated industries in the interest of the people. Monopolies have been protected and private cartels continue to kill people in the US and across the world. USAID actually serves US foreign policy interest which has little to do with humanitarianism. [4] Just two examples here: (a) during early years of Vietnam war CIA used the USAID for its covert operations and it has been the front for covert operations all along in every country targeted by the US administration, and (b) USAID played a role in the attempted coup in Venezuela in which Hugo Chavez was deposed for about 48 hours [April 10, 2002] and George Tenet, then head of CIA was directly involved. According to insiders, the two major failures of CIA since WWII were China’s occupation of Tibet and to a lesser extent the failed 2002 Venezuelan coup.

USAID has three Congress approved accounts: Development Assistance, PL 480, and Economic Support Fund. Development Assistance and PL480 together account for about 80% of the budgetary allocation. For instance, “In FY2008, about 40% of USAID’s agricultural development programs were funded by the DA account. For FY2009, about $375 million of the $1.8 billion DA appropriation was earmarked for agricultural development….. PL480 Food for Peace Program, which provides food aid for both emergency relief and development purposes.…” [5]

Beware of slick words and note that Melissa Ho, an agriculture expert, was an aide to Hillary Clinton of the “we came, we saw, he died, infamy”, and earlier worked in the agriculture division of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation with Rajiv Shah as head of that division. The ‘Congress approved financial appropriation’ is for the consumption of stupid academics and the media; in reality this institution has access to unlimited funds.

This agency works in subtle ways. One of its most important work is to identify and nurture future leaders in the third world countries, particularly scientists (especially those working in agriculture and information technology) bureaucrats, judges and political leaders, invite them to ‘prestigious international seminars,’ essentially lavish holidays, to create a sort of ‘group think’ that furthers America’s foreign policy interests. This is the operational side of covert operations; the real strategists never show their faces and the real agenda has to be pieced together from thousands of evidences. But the key point is that this agency and their controllers are perfectly capable of disregarding even American Presidential orders. [6]
The Pentagon's National Defense University, on the eve of the 2003 Iraq War, issued a paper declaring: 'Agribiz is to the United States what oil is to the Middle East.' Agribusiness had become a strategic weapon in the arsenal of the world's only superpower. William Engdahl has astutely pieced together the weaponization of seeds and control over global food production as the central strategic weapon of world’s only super power. [7] These silent weapons are used by USAID and the powerful American tax-free foundations. Investigations starkly reveal that many of India’s leading anti-GM NGOs are also either victim or willing partners in this nefarious agenda; some are definitely willing partners.

Monsanto

Monsanto was responsible for mass marketing of carcinogen PCB, Agent Orange defoliant that was sprayed all over Vietnam, and glyphosate that must be used in combination with their patented genetically engineered seeds. Dr. Don Huber, in a discussion with Dr Mercola, pointed out that the glyphosate kills beneficial soil organisms vital for uptake of critical minerals. That results in less healthy, less nutritious food and makes plants vulnerable to diseases and pest attacks.[8] This criminal corporation now controls global seeds supply of food, feed and fibre crops; it is systematically taking over natural seed firms. Nearly 95% of genetic engineering research is paid for and controlled by Monsanto and other multinational seed corporations who manipulate scientific research to hide the dangers of genetically altered plants and animals. [See Image 1]

Every independent scientist who found out the dangers of genetically engineered foods “has been under well structured and extraordinarily coordinated attack; some even express surprise that they are alive” says Jeffrey Smith. [9] Over fifty microbiologists have died under mysterious circumstances. 

According to an investigative report by the Center for Food Safety, "Monsanto has an annual budget of $10 million and a staff of 75 devoted solely to investigating and prosecuting farmers." [10] When farmers purchase Monsanto seeds, they also sign a technology agreement for not saving seeds. Let us also give credit to those hundreds of upright scientists of US-DoA who knew of the dangers and warned. Their documented concerns are in the public domain but USAID, the US Government and Monsanto have immense resources to silence their critics. [11] Nepal matters to them for other than humanitarian reasons.
