Happy 100th Anniversary, Poison Gas! [Video]

gasJames Corbett – As the world marks the passing of the 100th anniversary of the use of poison gas on the battlefield, James takes a moment to note some of the dark legacy of Bayer that the German chemical/pharmaceutical giant would prefer you didn’t know.

WIKIPEDIA – Chemical weapons in World War I were primarily used to demoralize, injure, and kill entrenched defenders, against whom the indiscriminate and generally slow-moving or static nature of gas clouds would be most effective. The types of weapons employed ranged from disabling chemicals, such as tear gas and the severe mustard gas, to lethal agents like phosgene and chlorine. This chemical warfare was a major component of the first global war and first total war of the 20th century. The killing capacity of gas was limited, with four percent of combat deaths caused by gas. Gas was unlike most other weapons of the period because it was possible to develop effective countermeasures, such as gas masks. In the later stages of the war, as the use of gas increased, its overall effectiveness diminished. The widespread use of these agents of chemical warfare, and wartime advances in the composition of high explosives, gave rise to an occasionally expressed view of World War I as “the chemists’ war”.[1][2] Continue reading

Our Financial Future: Infinite Greed Meets a Funny Thing Called Karma

profitCharles Hugh Smith – Somewhere along the line, we lost the ability to distinguish between earning a profit and maximizing private gain by any means, i.e. Infinite Greed. If you insist on making this distinction now, you anger a lot of people, as it blows the capitalist cover of Infinite Greed.

The distinction between earning a profit and maximizing private gain by any means angers not just the few benefiting from the useful delusion that Infinite Greed is simply profit on overdrive; it seems to anger everyone who believes the Status Quo of burning mountains of coal to power towel warmers, sitting in traffic burning petrol two hours a day and central banks enriching the already wealthy is not just sustainable but gol-darned good.

If you make the distinction between earning a profit and maximizing private gain by any means, then you realize the status quo is neither sustainable nor good: it is unsustainable and evil. This angers everyone who has rationalized their investment in (and defense of) an evil system, because, well, it’s hard to feel all warm and fuzzy about your choices if the phony facade falls and the evil of the system you’ve defended is starkly revealed.

Every enterprise must earn a profit to survive. A worker-owned collective must earn a profit, as it needs money to reinvest in the business and reward those who have invested their capital (human, social, financial, intellectual, etc.) in the enterprise.

If the collective can’t reinvest in new plant and new workers as the old equipment fails and old workers retire, it will weaken and collapse. This is equally true of any business owned by the state (i.e. a socialist enterprise): if the state-owned enterprise doesn’t earn a profit that can be reinvested in the business, it can only survive if it is subsidized by some other enterprise that is earning a profit.

More Doctors Confessing To Intentionally Diagnosing Healthy People With Cancer To Make Money

Organic Health – It happens more often than you can imagine, but more Doctors are finally getting caught in the act of misrepresenting their oath and fraudulently diagnosing healthy patients with cancer to turn a quick buck from kickbacks on chemotherapy poisons.

Is it any wonder that cancer societies worldwide put a far greater financial initiative on chemotherapy and radiation research than disease prevention techniques? Preventing disease doesn’t make money, but treating disease certainly does.

cancerTake Dr. Farid Fata, a prominent cancer doctor in Michigan who admitted in court one year ago to intentionally and wrongfully diagnosing healthy people with cancer. Fata also admitted to giving them chemotherapy drugs for the purpose of making a profit

Who would ever suspect a Doctor of faking a diagnosis to collect money. It’s unconscionable, but yet it happens with cancer and almost every disease that medical doctors can generate income through kickbacks and commissions based on the volume of patients treated with specific pharmaceuticals.

“Many of these unscrupulous Physicians are like businessmen without a conscience. The only difference is they have your health and trust in their hands–a very dangerous combination when money is involved,” said Dr. Sayed Mohammed, a retired Oncologist who admits seeing the trend more than a decade ago.

“It is my choice,” Fata said on Tuesday of his surprise guilty plea, which included rattling off the names of numerous drugs he prescribed for his patients over the years. In each admission, he uttered these words: “I knew that it was medically unnecessary.” Continue reading

Which Promotes Healing — Drinking Alkaline Water Or Eating An Alkaline Diet?

Robert Harrington – There have been many reports recently about the virtues of drinking alkaline water. Often they are accompanied by sales pitches for water ionizers or alkaline water machines. The marketing behind these water alkalizing product is usually quite aggressive, which begs the question. “Why?”

alkaline

First, it ought to be established that the human body functions the best with fresh pure water at its natural pH of 7.0. However, found in its most natural state throughout the environment, water can range from 6.5 to 8.5.

“The normal range for pH in surfacewater systems is 6.5 to 8.5 and for groundwater systems 6 to 8.5. Alkalinity is a measure of the capacity of the water to resists a change in pH that would tend to make the water more acidic.” – pH – Water Research Center

Drinking water on a regular basis that is a little more alkaline than acidic can be advantageous. Acidic water tends to leach minerals from the body, especially the teeth, bones and connective tissue. Even distilled water that has a pH of 7.0 can do the same. Continue reading

Perspective On Sacrifice: The US Has Hit Bottom

Gordon Duff – America has a military today that has recently lost two wars, a military that has no respect for constitutional democracy, for human rights, for freedom of speech, a military steeped in hokey religion, bloated paychecks and easy life.

Is what I just wrote true?  Actually the answer is unclear, somewhat true, totally true some of the time, but sadly a legitimate way of examining how America has fallen so low and the role the military has played.  What is “genuinely American” is to realize that the military is our kids, our families, our people but that it is also a tyrannical and corrupt entity where our children and our families are ground into the dirt by thieves and criminals who hide behind manufactured conflicts and use our children and our families as hammers to enslave the world.

Is that part true?  You bet it is.

Glorification of war is a disease in America.  War has impoverished America, war has stripped America of her government, her people of their rights and freedoms and, moreover, of their critical thinking capability as well.  War has destroyed America as surely as Americans have destroyed Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Pakistan, Palestine and Ukraine.  Oh, you didn’t know we took those nations down as well, perhaps this is part of the problem.

Tom Brokaw coined the term Greatest Generation.  To him and to so many of us, born during the war or soon thereafter, the Marines at Guadalcanal, the 101st Airborne at Bastogne, those who died on Omaha Beach or Tarawa or bombing Germany with the 8th Air Force typified everything good about America.

We were right about the people, just wrong about the war.  It took many of us over half a century to realize that even “the good war,” coined so because of endless hand wringing over the holocaust, had blinded so many of us to the realities of the Second World War, the criminal underbelly of geopolitics.

Germany and Japan weren’t the enemies we thought.  Efforts to dehumanize the enemy, something that had a huge backlash in the US during the first war, the US being a nation almost 40% German in origin, were mindless and destructive to the human soul.  But we don’t have to talk about that now.

True Alignment: excitement, messages, things falling into place, opening up space for things to move, adjusting and improvising, peace, principles of the sacred feminine, reflection, ancient wisdom, putting things in a better order or organization, being able to recognize patterns of the future

Catalysts for Change: wasting energy on things/beliefs that are not important or true, mood swings, forcing things forward without taking a look at the situation, interruptions and technical difficulties, peskiness, feeling unsupported, not comprehending, things that are almost incomprehensible due to their depravity, rushing around, demanding needs be met right now, dictating

Sabian Symbol for the Lunar Month/Astrological Year: “the music of the spheres”

The descent of the Second Renaissance continues, with rivulets of clarity, inspiration, and motivation. What is streaming its way to you today?

Surges of energy from a magnetic filament that has been dancing for five days on the Sun are churning and whirling. Wild solar activity produces wild earth activity.

The effects are tectonic, in many ways. The ground shakes as it did in Nepal over the weekend. Napping volcanoes like Calbuco in Chile are spewing awake. Continue reading

The U.S. Is A Corporation. Precious Metals Stand In Its Way

Michael Noonan – Where have all the trillions of newly created “money” gone?  Into the failed and bankrupt banking scam conducted by the elites.  All world-wide monetary policy undertaken by the central banks has been for the sole purpose of protecting the failed banking financial structure, propping up the fiat currencies.

Virtually none of the newly created “money” has ever left the banking system for loans to be used for productive means.  Instead, it is being used to enslave other sovereign nations, breaking them financially, then taking control of each nation, one nation at a time.  Think of Ireland, Spain, Cyprus, and now Greece most prominently in the Kabuki theater known as the elite-controlled Western press.  The purpose:  A no escape treadmill of debt bondage and poverty.  [Kabuki theater: Performance where nothing substantive gets done]

Ukraine could be thrown in, for good measure, but it has been serving a different purpose:  the [failed] attempt to disrupt and gain control of Russia.  Much of this has to do with a revised Great Game where the UK has been replaced by the US.  Different players, on the surface, but both owned by the Crown Temple, based in The City, located in London but not a part of the UK, just as the District of Columbia is located in Washington D C but not a part of the United States.  [Note: The Crown is not the Queen].

The United States is a corporation owned by the Crown since the formation of the colonies.  It issues fiat Federal Reserve Notes [FRNs], which, as we have often stated, are nothing more than instruments of debt or liens.  Debt cannot be money.  The word debt has no fixed legal meaning, so we will call it an obligation to repay on a contract.  Without getting too far afield, FRNs, as liens, is what ties US citizens into the IRS tax system.
