America stunned as Sebelius explains still no ‘reliable’ data on Obamacare enrollment numbers ‘Just how many Americans have enrolled through Healthcare.gov, the federal government’s online health insurance exchange? Answer: We don’t know. With today’s Internet and programming technology, finding out how many people have visited, signed up, answered a poll, etc., is child’s play. It’s nothing. But even something as simple as this is beyond the scope of the federal government’s capability. And yet millions still have faith in President Obama and his administration, no matter how incompetent they are or how much they lie to them.’ Read more: America stunned as Sebelius explains still no 'reliable' data on Obamacare enrollment numbers http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/america-stunned-as-sebelius-explains-still-no-reliable-data-on-obamacare-enrollment-numbers/ Sent by gReader
Obama uses executive order in sweeping takeover of nation’s climate change policies ‘Through the stroke of a pen, President Obama on Friday used his executive powers to elevate and take control of climate change policies in an attempt to streamline sustainability initiatives – and potentially skirt legislative oversight and push a federal agenda on states. The executive order establishes a task force of state and local officials to advise the administration on how to respond to severe storms, wildfires, droughts and other potential impacts of climate change.’ Read More: Obama uses executive order in sweeping takeover of nation's climate change policies http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/obama-uses-executive-order-in-sweeping-takeover-of-nations-climate-change-policies/ Sent by gReader

Syria destroys all chemical weapons installations: OPCW ‘The Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) says Syria has destroyed all its declared chemical weapons installations. The international chemical weapons watchdog made the statement in a document obtained by Reuters on Thursday. According to the document, Syria has completed the destruction of equipment for producing chemical arms, meeting a deadline set for its disarmament program. “The OPCW is satisfied it has verified, and seen destroyed, all declared critical production/mixing/filling equipment from all 23 sites,” the document said.’ Read more: Syria destroys all chemical weapons installations: OPCW http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/syria-destroys-all-chemical-weapons-installations-opcw/ Sent by gReader

Commonwealth Bank of Australia hires G4S to spy on politicians ‘An undercover surveillance operation ordered by the Commonwealth Bank has embroiled the institution in a spying scandal, with senior MPs monitored and photographed by private detectives investigating one of its critics. The bank hired security firm G4S to conduct ”Operation Lantern”, round-the-clock surveillance on consumer advocate and anti-banking lobbyist Michael Fraser (pictured right) between August 28 and September 1. G4S, which conducted the security operation for the London Olympics, claims it is ”a world leader in providing compliance and investigation related services”. Internationally, surveillance operations by governments and private firms are attracting increasing criticism and allegations of infringing privacy.’ Read more: Commonwealth Bank of Australia hires G4S to spy on politicians http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/commonwealth-bank-of-australia-hires-g4s-to-spy-on-politicians/ Sent by gReader
Ever Seen a Mind-Control Tower? Bet You Have “Dr Andrija Puharich in the 50′s/60′s, found that clairvoyants’ brainwaves became 8 Hz when their psychic powers were operative. He saw an Indian Yogi in 1956 controlling his brainwaves, deliberately shifting his consciousness from one level to another. ‘Puharich trained people with bio-feedback to do this consciously, making 8 Hz waves. A healer made 8 Hz waves pass into a patient, healing their heart trouble, her brain emitting 8 Hz . One person emitting a certain frequency can make another also resonate to the same frequency. Our brains are extremely vulnerable to any technology which sends out ELF waves, because they immediately start resonating to the outside signal by a kind of tuning-fork effect. Puharich experimented discovering that A) 7.83 Hz (earth’s pulse rate) made a person feel good, producing an altered-state. B) 10.80 Hz causes riotious behaviour and C) 6.6 Hz causes depression.’ Read more: Ever Seen a Mind-Control Tower?

Greatest deception in modern history ‘Lies carry a great burden, one that grows over the passage of time like an untended vine. Layer after layer, they mesh, intertwine, and become entangled in a maze of deception, and of course, more lies. I know people have a hard time accepting facts about their government that their personal philosophies somehow automatically reject. I also know that this same lot, who believes the “official” story about the 9/11 attacks and the death of Osama bin Laden, has the capacity to swallow certain truths. They suppress their own knowledge in order to maintain a personal illusion. Common sense and guts have been lost on the once inquisitive American public. Americans have been led by politicians and media to believe an impossible story, one that begins long ago when a man named bin Laden was a friend of the Americans. It was during the Afghan civil war in the 1980s, when he and other mujaheddin warlords and jihad fighters were aided through a CIA program called ‘Al Qaeda’ which existed to fund the anti-Soviet military efforts. Later, terrorist attacks against the United States would be blamed on bin Laden, though he would consistently deny these charges.’ Read more: Greatest deception in modern history http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/greatest-deception-in-modern-history/ Sent by gReader

NASA Warp Drive Solution For Faster-Than-Light Travel ‘Move over Star Trek! According to state-of-the art theory, a warp drive could cut the travel time between stars from tens of thousands of years to weeks or months. Harold G. White, a physicist and advanced propulsion engineer at NASA and other NASA engineers are trying to determine whether faster-than-light travel — warp drive — might someday be possible. The team has attempting to slightly warp the trajectory of a photon, changing the distance it travels in a certain area, and then observing the change with a device called an interferometer. “Space has been expanding since the Big Bang 13.7 billion years ago,” said Dr. White, 43, who runs the research project told the New York Times. “And we know that when you look at some of the cosmology models, there were early periods of the universe where there was explosive inflation, where two points would’ve went receding away from each other at very rapid speeds. Nature can do it,” he added. “So the question is, can we do it?”’ Read more: NASA Warp Drive Solution For Faster-Than-Light Travel http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/nasa-warp-drive-solution-for-faster-than-light-travel/ Sent by gReader

All Roads Lead to Disney So maybe it’s just me but I’ve wondered why some brands stay around for a long, long time, and some seem to come, have a good run, then eventually lose the interest of the public, no matter how hard they try to adapt and change with the times.  Companies like Sears, K-mart, JCPenney, The Limited just can’t connect to the modern consumer, even though they try very hard.  The Gap-that used-to-be bastion of coolness-has grown stale.  Even Levi’s is not hip anymore.  Coca-cola.  It has had to develop new and different products periodically to keep up.  Shockingly, even McDonald’s has had lagging domestic sales in the last few years.  It seems to be a normal cycle for about any long-term company or brand that has been around 20 to 30 years or longer to go through a period of decline and unpopularity, where they must work to re-invent themselves, bring on new products, or something to that effect. There’s one brand, however, that marches on never seeming to change, nor having to do anything to appeal to a new audience of consumers.  It doesn’t appear to advertise much.  The same talking Mouse has been around since the early ’50s, without any updating.  The Mouse and his Magicc Kingdom have gobbled up enough media companies and movie and TV companies to become the world’s largest media conglomerate.  There’s always an addition here, a new Shanghai-Disney groundbreaking there.  Economy downturns, whatever, the Mouse House marches on, tripling or quadrupling its revenues every few years.  It’s like the Mouse is supercharged or something.  I know families who go to Disneyworld every year, or twice a year; they get ecstatically excited when talking about it.  Why does an old talking Mouse, horridly long lines, and insanely hot weather, for a few 70s-era, dated, corny rides bring out such emotion(and such “happiness”..) in people?  This connection to such emotion-what could it be?? In the late 90s/early 2000s I was a Britney fan.  I thought she was really good-a very different singer, and a great dancer.  I always thought, too, that she was much smarter than the consensus seemed to want to show.  But mostly what I liked about her was her very pure, kind of simple, spirit (maybe it was the small, southern town origin connection..)  She wasn’t cutthroat, blindly ambitious, or ruthless.  She just seemed to genuinely enjoy performing and making albums and pleasing people.  An aside–she and Justin and Christina, et al, came to the Mickey Mouse club in Orlando just a couple of years after I was there for the summer. (See: Bacchanalia)  We lived not that far from the MM club studios and got to tour them and watch shows being recorded.  So funnily, I’m actually familiar with the MM club studio and set where she got her start.  Anyway-yes, there might have been blatant sexuality in her music and videos, but the big question really is was it her, her people around her, or just the society expectations?  Nobody ever really seemed to make the connection that she was an original Disney star and using strong sexuality in her music, videos, etc as a teen star.  You would think that wholesome Disney might be concerned by having their pure, family brand of entertainment connected with a former star with such an open expression of sexuality.  Wouldn’t it seem that way? When things started to go south for Britney in the mid-2000s I watched some of it, one-because you couldn’t avoid it, two-because it was so hard for me to understand how a person could change so much in such a short time.  It didn’t seem right, and there seemed something very odd about it.  Since then, I’ve noticed that every year or so, the media trots out a new young starlet who is going through difficulties, and drastic personality changes, where they look to be unrecognizable from their former self.  Sometimes there may even be more than one startlet going through this media show, or they overlap with one another.  It sounds like the plot of a bad B-movie (maybe even a Disney movie??..).  Lindsay Lohan has been going on for a while, and the public seems to have gotten bored with it by now.  The new starlet who was a former Nickelodeon child star with, I would guess, a connection to Disney through it or one of its myriad subsidiaries in producing at least one of her movies, who is generating the media buzz at the moment appears to be Amanda Bynes.  I don’t want to feed it, but the change in her physically is mind-boggling.  You just don’t wake up one day and decide to change so drastically.  I have a hard time believing anyone can do that, but when it is one child star starlet after another, after another, after another, you have to wonder.  I also want to include the former male child stars here as well, such as Macauley Culkin-he of the Disney juggernaut, the Home Alone movies, and many others who go through highly publicized difficulties.  It’s like they start living on a lower plane or something.  Some other, negative plane.  Whatever it is, my hope is that the public won’t feed the media show and give it any energy.  You really don’t know what these girls and guys are going through, and you certainly shouldn’t take what the media tells you as anything other than a fictional entertaining story.  Except the thing is, these people’s lives are not entertainment, nor conductors to bring in massive amounts of negative energy.  Watch with your eyes open.  Connect things.  Look for patterns.  It’s easy to see once you start really looking. ‘Rebellion’ Unreleased Britney track-Record company wouldn’t release it The post All Roads Lead to Disney appeared first on The Vigilant Citizen. http://vigilantcitizen.com/vc-community/roads-lead-disney/ Sent by gReader
Sinead O’Connor’s Open Letter to Miley Cyrus: “You Are Being Pimped by the Music Business” Sinead O’Connor is definitely not known for NOT speaking her mind. When Miley Cyrus claimed that her look for the video Wrecking Ball was inspired by Sinead’s quintessential 90′s hit Nothing Compares, Sinead did not quietly nod her head in approval. Instead, she wrote an open letter basically destroying everything Miley Cyrus is about and the industry that controls her. As I stated in the article MTV VMAs 2013: It Was About Miley Cyrus Taking the Fall, Miley is not simply a young girl “expressing herself”. She is doing what she is being told by her handlers who are turning her into another industry sex kitten. The letter posted on Sinead’s website, warns her of what is really going on: Those who control her are prostituting her and they will eventually dump her. She tells her : “your youth makes you blind to the evils of show business. If you have an innocent heart you can’t recognise those who do not.”  Sinead even adds that, if she keeps going that route, she will eventually end up in rehab. Here’s the (strongly worded) letter: “Dear Miley, I wasn’t going to write this letter, but today i’ve been dodging phone calls from various newspapers who wished me to remark upon your having said in Rolling Stone your Wrecking Ball video was designed to be similar to the one for Nothing Compares … So this is what I need to say … And it is said in the spirit of motherliness and with love. I am extremely concerned for you that those around you have led you to believe, or encouraged you in your own belief, that it is in any way ‘cool’ to be naked and licking sledgehammers in your videos. It is in fact the case that you will obscure your talent by allowing yourself to be pimped, whether its the music business or yourself doing the pimping. Nothing but harm will come in the long run, from allowing yourself to be exploited, and it is absolutely NOT in ANY way an empowerment of yourself or any other young women, for you to send across the message that you are to be valued (even by you) more for your sexual appeal than your obvious talent. I am happy to hear I am somewhat of a role model for you and I hope that because of that you will pay close attention to what I am telling you. The music business doesn’t give a shit about you, or any of us. They will prostitute you for all you are worth, and cleverly make you think its what YOU wanted … and when you end up in rehab as a result of being prostituted, ‘they’ will be sunning themselves on their yachts in Antigua, which they bought by selling your body and you will find yourself very alone. None of the men ogling you give a shit about you either, do not be fooled. Many’s the woman mistook lust for love. If they want you sexually that doesn’t mean they give a f**k about you. All the more true when you unwittingly give the impression you don’t give much of a f**k about yourself. And when you employ people who give the impression they don’t give much of a f**k about you either. No one who cares about you could support your being pimped … and that includes you yourself. Yes, I’m suggesting you don’t care for yourself. That has to change. You ought be protected as a precious young lady by anyone in your employ and anyone around you, including you. This is a dangerous world. We don’t encourage our daughters to walk around naked in it because it makes them prey for animals and less than animals, a distressing majority of whom work in the music industry and it’s associated media. You are worth more than your body or your sexual appeal. The world of showbiz doesn’t see things that way, they like things to be seen the other way, whether they are magazines who want you on their cover, or whatever … Don’t be under any illusions … ALL of them want you because they’re making money off your youth and your beauty … which they could not do except for the fact your youth makes you blind to the evils of show business. If you have an innocent heart you can’t recognise those who do not. I repeat, you have enough talent that you don’t need to let the music business make a prostitute of you. You shouldn’t let them make a fool of you either. Don’t think for a moment that any of them give a flying f**k about you. They’re there for the money… we’re there for the music. It has always been that way and it will always be that way. The sooner a young lady gets to know that, the sooner she can be REALLY in control. You also said in Rolling Stone that your look is based on mine. The look I chose, I chose on purpose at a time when my record company were encouraging me to do what you have done. I felt I would rather be judged on my talent and not my looks. I am happy that I made that choice, not least because I do not find myself on the proverbial rag heap now that I am almost 47 yrs of age … which unfortunately many female artists who have based their image around their sexuality, end up on when they reach middle age. Real empowerment of yourself as a woman would be to in future refuse to exploit your body or your sexuality in order for men to make money from you. I needn’t even ask the question … I’ve been in the business long enough to know that men are making more money than you are from you getting naked. Its really not at all cool. And its sending dangerous signals to other young women. Please in future say no when you are asked to prostitute yourself. Your body is for you and your boyfriend. It isn’t for every spunk-spewing dirtbag on the net, or every greedy record company executive to buy his mistresses diamonds with. As for the shedding of the Hannah Montana image … whoever is telling you getting naked is the way to do that does absolutely NOT respect your talent, or you as a young lady. Your records are good enough for you not to need any shedding of Hannah Montana. She’s waaaaaaay gone by now … Not because you got naked but because you make great records. Whether we like it or not, us females in the industry are role models and as such we have to be extremely careful what messages we send to other women. The message you keep sending is that its somehow cool to be prostituted … its so not cool Miley … its dangerous. Women are to be valued for so much more than their sexuality. We aren’t merely objects of desire. I would be encouraging you to send healthier messages to your peers … that they and you are worth more than what is currently going on in your career.

Human Rights Watch is a propaganda agency for the US government ‘Since when does a human rights organization take to arguing the case for a military attack that will kill scores of innocent civilians? If you are Human Rights Watch, it’s all in a day’s work. The US regime’s favorite “human rights ” organization, which once praised the Obama Administration’s continuation of its predecessor’s torturous CIA “extraordinary rendition” program, pulled out all stops to bolster Obama’s claims that the Syrian government was responsible for the August 21st chemical attack near Damascus. As Obama was ready to teach Syria a lesson via Tomahawk cruise missiles, Human Rights Watch stood virtually alone in the world on the president’s side. The human rights group was not busy trying to help the victims or promote international diplomatic efforts to end the crisis. They were instead feverishly engaged in a convoluted effort to prove that the missiles that purportedly carried the poison gas could only have come from Syrian government positions. They had no investigators on the ground, yet they determined independent of facts that the Syrian government must have been responsible. This is the job for a human rights group? To help a president make the case for war?’ Read more: Human Rights Watch is a propaganda agency for the US government http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/human-rights-watch-is-a-propaganda-agency-for-the-us-government/ Sent by gReader

Climate change: this is not science – it’s mumbo jumbo ‘The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which published on Friday the first instalment of its latest report, is a deeply discredited organisation. Presenting itself as the voice of science on this important issue, it is a politically motivated pressure group that brings the good name of science into disrepute. Its previous report, in 2007, was so grotesquely flawed that the leading scientific body in the United States, the InterAcademy Council, decided that an investigation was warranted. The IAC duly reported in 2010, and concluded that there were “significant shortcomings in each major step of [the] IPCC’s assessment process”, and that “significant improvements” were needed. It also chastised the IPCC for claiming to have “high confidence in some statements for which there is little evidence”. Since then, little seems to have changed, and the latest report is flawed like its predecessor.’ Read more: Climate change: this is not science – it’s mumbo jumbo http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/climate-change-this-is-not-science-its-mumbo-jumbo/ Sent by gReader

Washington’s Tyranny: What is the Real Agenda of Obama’s ‘War on Terror’? ‘The war criminal Barack Obama has declared his “outrage” over the 62 deaths associated with the takeover of a Nairobi, Kenya, shopping mall by al-Shabaab fighters. But the attack on the shopping mall was obama’s fault. Al Shabaab spokesmen said that the attack on the Nairobi mall was a retaliatory response to the Kenyan troops sent to fight against them in Somalia. The Kenyan troops, of course, were sent to Somalia as a result of pressure from Washington. Just as the outbreak of violence in Mali resulted from the fighters that obama used against Gaddafi moving into Mali, Washington’s violence against Somalia has resulted in the terrorist attack on the Nairobi mall. This fact again raises the never asked question: What is the real agenda of Washington’s “war on terror”? The western presstitutes never ask this question, nor do western legislative bodies.’ Read more: Washington’s Tyranny: What is the Real Agenda of Obama’s 'War on Terror'? http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/washingtons-tyranny-what-is-the-real-agenda-of-obamas-war-on-terror/ Sent by gReader

Coke / Security Camera Commercial I was sitting in a movie theater a short time ago, waiting to see The Great Gatsby, when I saw the strangest commercial I have ever seen.  It starts with the statement “On security cameras around the world…  We found…”.  The commercial then proceeds to show clips of people dancing, hugging, and kissing while displaying oxymoron’s such as “harmless soldiers”, “honest pickpockets”, and “attacks of friendship “.   There was no product brand name displayed until the end of the commercial. Through out the commercial I couldn’t help but ask myself if this was the most blatant Big Brother propaganda piece ever created.  It’s as if they are telling us that it is good that we are being watched 24/7, and that we should embrace the idea of having cameras watch our every move. It was not until the end of the commercial that the sponsor of the spot was revealed.  It was none other than Coke.  If there is any company that knows how to get a message across in less than 2 minutes it’s Coke.  From what I saw Coke was not even hinted at during the commercial.   The post Coke / Security Camera Commercial appeared first on The Vigilant Citizen. http://vigilantcitizen.com/vc-community/coke-security-camera-commercial/ Sent by gReader

Here is what logic says happened, based upon all the input I have received The false flag wag the dog psy ops that they are fronting in the news – using crisis actors for the Boston bombing, and the phony Navy Yard shooting, are not taking lives.

The U.S. and Israel has questioned Kenya’s ability to carry out a thorough investigation. The Israeli Mossad, the CIA, and the Kenyan intelligence agencies are working together to determine who is behind this bombing. U.S. officials said last week that the top suspect was the Somali-based group Al-Itihad al-Islamiya, known also as AIAI or the Islamic Union. But an article in today’s Christian Science Monitor raises questions if Al-Itihad was behind the attacks. “The facts don’t add up,” Theodoros Dagne, a specialist on African affairs at the Congressional Research Service in Washington told the Monitor. “The last time Al Ittihad carried out terror attacks was in 1996-97 in Ethiopia. They have never targeted Western powers, the US or its allies.” He adds that “Somalis don’t blow themselves up. This is a Middle East trademark. They shoot, they kill. But never a suicide bombing.” Furthermore, he adds, if the Somalis had such missiles in their possession–they would have used them over the years. “I don’t think it’s them.”‘ Read more … Kenyan Bloodbath: Reaping the 'Benefits' of US AFRICOM Collaboration ‘At face value, and how the Western media is attempting to portray it, the Westgate Mall siege in Kenya’s capital city of Nairobi appears to be yet another senseless terrorist attack by the “religious fanatics” of Al Qaeda’s Somalia franchise, Al Shabaab.

The Hive Mind and The Invisible Thread ‘“We’re all connected.” It’s the ubiquitous mantra of new-agey types. Chances are if you’ve ever watched Oprah, were a fan of the TV show Lost, or have read just about anything I’ve written, you are very familiar with this concept. Along with its close cousin “everything happens for a reason,” it’s pretty much become a cliché that isn’t really given much thought. Yet, how exactly are we all connected? Sure, we’re all made of the same elements, live on the same planet, and are plugged into the same Internet, but the phrase usually refers to the idea that all of our minds are somehow connected, that our lives are intertwined, that actions taken by you, now, could somehow affect a struggling shoe salesman living in Uzbekistan. I think it’s about time we explored this concept and saved it from the nether regions of trite, hackneyed banality.

Quantitative Easing Worked For The Weimar Republic For A Little While Too There is a reason why every fiat currency in the history of the world has eventually failed. At some point, those issuing fiat currencies always find themselves giving in to the temptation to wildly print more money. Sometimes, the motivation for doing this is good. When an economy is really struggling, those that have been entrusted with the management of that economy can easily fall for the lie that things would be better if people just had “more money”. Today, the Federal Reserve finds itself faced with a scenario that is very similar to what the Weimar Republic was facing nearly 100 years ago. Like the Weimar Republic, the U.S. economy is also struggling and like the Weimar Republic, the U.S. government is absolutely drowning in debt. Unfortunately, the Federal Reserve has decided to adopt the same solution that the Weimar Republic chose. The Federal Reserve is recklessly printing money out of thin air, and in the short-term some positive things have come out of it. But quantitative easing worked for the Weimar Republic for a little while too. At first, more money caused economic activity to increase and unemployment was low. But all of that money printing destroyed faith in German currency and in the German financial system and ultimately Germany experienced an economic meltdown that the world is still talking about today. This is the path thatthe Federal Reserve is taking America down, but most Americans have absolutely no idea what is happening.

Ignore No More! The Real Fukushima Danger [Much like the term "background radiation", this staggering reality lurks continually behind the scenes of the major media spotlight, but it cannot be ignored any longer. Please sit up and take notice and think about courses of action should a much great incident take place, never mind the already accumulating vast quantities of radiation especially in the northern hemisphere's atmosphere and the Pacific ocean. - Zen]WashingtonsBlogThe Real Problem …The fact that the Fukushima reactors have been leaking huge amounts of radioactive water ever since the 2011 earthquake is certainly newsworthy.  As are the facts that:Tepco doesn’t know how to stop the leaksScientists have no idea where the cores of the nuclear reactors areRadiation could hit Korea, China and the West Coast of North America fairly hardBut the real problem is that the idiots who caused this mess are probably about to cause a much bigger problem.Specifically, the greatest short-term threat to humanity is from the fuel pools at Fukushima.If one of the pools collapsed or caught fire, it could have severe adverse impacts not only on Japan … but the rest of the world, including the United States.   Indeed, a Senator called it a national security concern for the U.S.:The radiation caused by the failure of the spent fuel pools in the event of another earthquake could reach the West Coast within days. That absolutely makes the safe containment and protection of this spent fuel a security issue for the United States.Nuclear expert Arnie Gundersen and physician Helen Caldicott have both said that people should evacuate the Northern Hemisphere if one of the Fukushima fuel pools collapses. Gundersen said:Move south of the equator if that ever happened, I think that’s probably the lesson there.Former U.N. adviser Akio Matsumura calls removing the radioactive materials from the Fukushima fuel pools “an issue of human survival”.So the stakes in decommissioning the fuel pools are high, indeed.But in 2 months, Tepco – the knuckleheads who caused the accident – are going to start doing this very difficult operation on their own.The New York Times reports:Thousands of workers and a small fleet of cranes are preparing for one of the latest efforts to avoid a deepening environmental disaster that has China and other neighbors increasingly worried: removing spent fuel rods from the damaged No. 4 reactor building and storing them in a safer place.The Telegraph notes:Tom Snitch, a senior professor at the University of Maryland and with more than 30 years’ experience in nuclear issues, said  “[Japan officials] need to address the real problems, the spent fuel rods in Unit 4 and the leaking pressure vessels,” he said. “There has been too much work done wiping down walls and duct work in the reactors for any other reason then to do something….  This is a critical global issue and Japan must step up.”The Japan Times writes:In November, Tepco plans to begin the delicate operation of removing spent fuel from Reactor No. 4 [with] radiation equivalent to 14,000 times the amount released by the Hiroshima atomic bomb. …. It remains vulnerable to any further shocks, and is also at risk from ground liquefaction. Removing its spent fuel, which contains deadly plutonium, is an urgent task…. The consequences could be far more severe than any nuclear accident the world has ever seen. If a fuel rod is dropped, breaks or becomes entangled while being removed, possible worst case scenarios include a big explosion, a meltdown in the pool, or a large fire. Any of these situations could lead to massive releases of deadly radionuclides into the atmosphere, putting much of Japan — including Tokyo and Yokohama — and even neighboring countries at serious risk.CNBC points out:The radioactive leak at Japan’s Fukushima nuclear plant is far from under control and could get a lot worse, a nuclear energy expert, who compiles the annual “World Nuclear Industry Status Report” warned.***The big danger – and it was identified by Japan’s atomic energy commission – is if you lose water in one of the spent fuel pools and you get a spent fuel fire.CNN reports:[Mycle Schneider, nuclear consultant:]  The situation could still get a lot worse. A massive spent fuel fire would likely dwarf the current dimensions of the catastrophe and could exceed the radioactivity releases of Chernobyl dozens of times. First, the pool walls could leak beyond the capacity to deliver cooling water or a reactor building could collapse following one of the hundred  of aftershocks. Then, the fuel cladding could ignite spontaneously releasing its entire radioactive inventory.Reuters notes:The operator of Japan’s crippled Fukushima nuclear plant is preparing to remove 400 tons of highly irradiated spent fuel from a damaged reactor building, a dangerous operation that has never been attempted before on this scale.Containing by Text-Enhance" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/08/if-a-doctor-killed-patients-doing-routine-surgery-and-then-tried-to-cover-it-up-would-you-let-him-do-brain-surgery-on-a-vip.html#">radiation equivalent to 14,000 times the amount released in the atomic bomb attack on Hiroshima 68 years ago, more than 1,300 used fuel rod assemblies packed tightly together need to be removed from a building that is vulnerable to collapse, should another large earthquake hit the area.Tokyo Electric by Text-Enhance" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/08/if-a-doctor-killed-patients-doing-routine-surgery-and-then-tried-to-cover-it-up-would-you-let-him-do-brain-surgery-on-a-vip.html#">Power Co (Tepco) is already in a losing battle to stop radioactive water overflowing from another part of the facility, and experts question whether it will be able to pull off the removal of all the assemblies successfully.“They are going to have difficulty in removing a significant number of the rods,” said Arnie Gundersen, a veteran U.S. nuclear engineer and director of Fairewinds by Text-Enhance" href="http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2013/08/if-a-doctor-killed-patients-doing-routine-surgery-and-then-tried-to-cover-it-up-would-you-let-him-do-brain-surgery-on-a-vip.html#">Energy Education, who used to build fuel assemblies.The operation, beginning this November at the plant’s Reactor No. 4, is fraught with danger, including the possibility of a large release of radiation if a fuel assembly breaks, gets stuck or gets too close to an adjacent bundle, said Gundersen and other nuclear experts.That could lead to a worse disaster than the March 2011 nuclear crisis at the Fukushima plant, the world’s most serious since Chernobyl in 1986.No one knows how bad it can get, but independent consultants Mycle Schneider and Antony Froggatt said recently in their World Nuclear Industry Status Report 2013: “Full release from the Unit-4 spent fuel pool, without any containment or control, could cause by far the most serious radiological disaster to date.”IMPORTANT – DON’T MISS THE FULL ARTICLE HERE>>+++ZenGardner.com[Hat tip: Al - tx!] http://www.zengardner.com/ignore-no-more-the-real-fukushima-danger/ Sent by gReader
Into the Breach by Zen GardnerWhat happened recently in response to the Syrian gambit of the globalist elite is profound. Besides the geopolitical upheaval it caused and subsequent dizzying effects, even more intriguing is the ensuing rise of conscious connecting of issues it seems to have spawned. It’s as if a layer of the false holographic onion peeled off and exposed not just the next layer, but the more fundamental and profound realization that this phony thing we’ve been witnessing truly is an illusion and that has layers to be peeled.That’s called awakening.And it’s a big deal. Especially when it cuts into the support base of hypocritical, hypnotic puppets like America’s Obama and sycophantic cronies like the laughable robotic John Kerry and bumbling idiot John McCain types. Who’s kidding who for goodness’ sake.And the good thing? Everyone can see it. That’s a major statement in itself.Where Are We?In the grand scheme of things this is a very interesting time. I think the contriving controllers are regrouping. They knew we were waking up but this acceleration that’s manifesting has taken them, or some of them, by surprise. They have plans in place to cut our communication lifeline but until then they are being forced to scramble.It’s obvious and they are humiliated. But don’t let your guard down.Besides the ongoing engineered onslaught on our minds and health, these maniacs have many weapons they can unleash at any time. What’s remarkable is to note how they treat us with a certain amount of literal fear and respect. We outnumber them by vast proportions and they know it. Posturing is their game, a culmination of centuries of social engineering and mind control. If we get too smart they get draconian, as we see they are in the process of doing in the US and other western countries.But right now the awakening is blowing their minds. It’s accelerating at a rate they did not and could not anticipate. They are of another weaker dimension. We must remember that. While they operate well in the dullard-like long term control aspect, we can overwhelm them in the present.That’s our domain, the now in which we live.The Smell of FreedomWhen the oppressed smell freedom you’d better look out. That’s what’s happening here – a spiritual revolution. We will jump the wall given the opportunity, and it is now.Remember the historical lessons of famous battles. When a breach in the wall of a city or castle being attacked opened up, it was all in. That was the chance, the opportunity–everything they treasured, committed to, and decided to fight and die for lay before them to perform for their freedom. In that moment the golden opportunity presented itself.Passionate, reckless abandon overwhelmed their spirits. It was time to charge.We are there. We’ve always been there, but our troops have swelled and the signal is being heard. Enormously. And this is an extremely prescient time with all that is being exposed to a massive swathe of humanity, giving credence to the mounting undercurrent of alternative forces that have been affirming these realities for some time.We can now attack with more conviction than ever. It’s time to aggressively expose their phony corrupt politics and baseless warmongering; their ecological, medical and corporate fascism; the banking control, scientific fraudulence, media propaganda and on and on….more than ever.Take Action YourselfAct. Approach your skeptical relatives again. Talk to strangers. Participate in blogs and marches and campaigns. Write local papers and mainstream outlets. Make a mark. This is a real opening that we cannot ignore or bypass.Activate. Please.Serious media clampdown attempts are in the works. Time is of the essence.

10 Ways to Shift Your Consciousness Paul Lenda, Guest Waking TimesIn moments of stress, anxiety and other intense harmful mind states that we experience within our lives, it can be difficult to keep our focus on positive personal development. The thought of becoming an enlightened sage radiating seemingly-perpetual positive energy can seem far off… an unattainable goal given life’s everyday problems. True as it may seem to be, this is a mental mechanism that blocks our ability to see things for what they are, namely that, “Your Self is already inherently liberated. It is the ideas that have been imposed on that Self which must be set free,” as Gangaji once mused.We’re going to take a look at 10 ways in which you can help shift your consciousness to a higher level of well-being. These tools, methods and mind states will help you become consciously evolved and on your way towards the expansion of your awareness.CompassionBy being compassionate, we embrace the sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress, together with a desire to alleviate it. By experiencing compassion, we also experience the awareness of the interdependence of all things. Compassion is an active choice to want for others the alleviation of their suffering. Compassionate action is a willingness to go beyond our own self-interests for the good of others. We let go of our own needs to attend to the needs of others so that we can meet our own deepest need: to feel connected to something…to feel a part of a larger shared humanity.Boundary DissolutionBy experiencing boundary dissolution, we experience a deconstruction and dissolving of boundaries that have been created by human cultures and societies and which have existed as long as the self-centered ego has influenced humanity. The purpose of boundary dissolution is to do away with these falsehoods that separate humanity instead of uniting it. When you dissolve the boundaries that divide and separate you from others, you will have the ability to transform your world into one of serenity, tranquility and peace. Oneness will not be just a philosophical concept but a reality that will be experienced by the totality of the human race.AppreciationWhen you appreciate someone, you are tuned into their positive qualities and express your empathy and gratitude for them. Appreciation results in positive vibration offered to all and further inspiration and expansion into a greater you. It’s a simple way to refresh ourselves, to open up heart-felt connections to ourselves and to others. Appreciation is both a fully-focused delight about whatever it is that feels good and a recognition of your own ability to intend and allow its manifestation.Appreciate a deep relaxing breath of air or maybe the pleasurable radiant warmth of the sun. The simple things you might take for granted are all worthy of appreciation. As you do this, try to focus completely on the good this experience or item offers you, and acknowledge that you and only you have created it, no matter how it came to you. No matter your condition or circumstances, there will always be something that you can find to appreciate. If it seems that your life is lacking in happiness, just look for a single thing each day and honor your part in manifesting it, then think of any and every aspect of that item or condition that is a positive force in your life.Inner PeaceHaving inner peace means that we are mentally and spiritually at peace, with enough knowledge and understanding to keep ourselves strong in the face of difficult and stressful life experiences. In some cultures inner peace is considered a state of consciousness that can be cultivated by taking up things like meditation, Tai Chi or yoga. Many spiritual practices refer to this kind of peace as being an experience of knowing your own self. The solution to finding inner peace requires us to look at the problem from a new perspective. We cannot change the nature of the world or its problems, but we can add a new dimension to life that will give us peace.We may not be able to eliminate all the problems of the world, but through meditation we can attain peace and happiness. We can make our family life more peaceful, loving and caring. We can help change the society in which we live. We can be a source of peace to all those around us. By leading a life in which we are caring and loving to others, we will develop into ideal human beings. By gaining inner peace, we can also achieve outer peace. Some people mistakenly think that the path of meditation is one of escapism. They feel that it requires you to sit in a cave or on a mountain top like a hermit. Meditation doesn’t lead to escapism, instead it makes us more alive.ForgivenessForgiveness is the moment-to-moment experience of peace and understanding that occurs when someone who feels injured has their suffering reduced, as they transform their grievance against the person or group that initiated the experience that led to that suffering. Forgiveness involves a sense of felt unity with one who has hurt us and can be regressive or progressive. By embracing the feeling of forgiveness as something that can help us, we accept it as an aspect of acceptance, love, peace, and truth, instead of experiencing hatred, emotionalism, negativity, falsehood…all of which are aspects of resentment.Forgiveness brings utter peace of mind. Resentment brings inner turmoil and suffering. Forgiveness means choosing to see the absolute perfection and beauty in everything. Everything and everyone is currently operating at its own level of awareness and/or evolution. Everyone and everything is what it is right now because that’s what it needs to learn or un-learn. People are what they are and make mistakes because they really don’t know otherwise or they don’t want to know otherwise. If they really knew otherwise, they would already be otherwise.MindfulnessMindfulness is a state of mind where you pay attention in a certain way. Mindfulness practice expands your field of awareness, allowing for improved oversight of somatic and effective experiencing, thanks to which you can experience an enhanced capacity for self-regulation of our arousal, affect and behavior. Mindfulness is incredibly helpful to us for several reasons. For starters, it reflects only what is presently happening and in exactly the way it is happening. There are no biases.Mindfulness is also the ability of the mind to observe without criticism. With this ability, you see things without condemnation or judgment. Nothing surprises you…you just take a balanced interest in things exactly as they are in their natural states. You don’t decide and you don’t judge…you just observe. Mindfulness registers experiences, but it does not compare them. It does not label them or categorize them. It just observes everything as if it were occurring for the first time. Mindfulness sees things as they really are. Once mindfulness becomes part of your everyday life, you develop the capacity to tolerate and accept painful experience, and you cultivate inner resources that help stabilize affect and reduce impulsiveness. For help with increasing your mindfulness, you should practice a meditation technique called vipassana, which was introduced around 2,500 years ago and has been specifically focused on experiencing a state of uninterrupted mindfulness.SelflessnessWhen we are selfless, we shift our focus onto the needs of others, rather than keeping it on ourselves. It is the practice of being unselfish and minimizing the gratification of the ego’s wants and desires. In order to make the life-redefining shift from selfishness to selflessness, go and focus on the well-being of others. This can be done in countless ways. You can clean up your life and surrender a fully healed body, heart, mind and soul to others when entering a relationship. You can also be ready to share any amount of time needed by others whenever they need. Be happy with your life and with whatever you are offered by others. Whenever you are sure to give your very best possible, you are receiving exactly whatever you need for your greatest possible spiritual benefit.NostalgiaNostalgia is a yearning for a return to some past period or seemingly-irrecoverable condition. It is the reliving of a past time, which is usually seen in a more positive light than the reality of that experience may have been. Studies have found that people who have a heightened level of nostalgia have higher self-esteem and are less prone to depression. Thinking of good memories for just 15 or 20 minutes a day can make you more cheerful than you were the week before, and happier than if you think of your current life. Nostalgia is a very potent mood booster, so if you seem to be in a bit of a funk, think about good memories of times past and you will experience higher self-esteem and feel more positively about friendships and close relationships.Post-MaterialismAs the Czech poet-president Vaclav Havel once said, “If the world is to change for the better, it must have a change in human consciousness.” Albert Einstein mused in a similar vein when he said that doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results is the very definition of insanity. The world’s problems are grand and are many. The only way these problems can be solved is by a fundamental and profound shift in human consciousness. Making the shift to post-materialism requires us to take a few steps first.We need to face the implications of population and consumption growth for pollution, climate change and environmental destruction. We need to realize that materialist values make for less happy lives. We need to identify and promote things in life that matter more than economic growth. We need to understand and experience the nature of the oneness and interconnectedness of all things and people.WonderWonder is the experience of those who reach a sense or state of so-called perfection in the ordering of the world. Experiences of wonder can lead us to a sense of transcendence and realization of higher states of being. From a mystical perspective, wonder relates to affirmation as wonder openings reveal the infinite and the source of all that is, which operate as gateways to uniting experiences. Energetically, wonder is an expression of Eros, a life force that propels one into the present moment and into life and that magnifies attentional capacities.Buddhism muses that distinctions limited to relative or empirical reality are artificial and result in perpetuating the anguish, the pain and the frustration that some speak of because we become alienated from experience. Religious practice and customs propagate and create alterations in perception. Ultimately, through such alterations, we are able to experience the transparency of relative existence and of subject-object separations that exist in reality. In other words, wonder leads us tasting a unified and infinite existence.About the AuthorPaul Lenda is a conscious evolution guide, author of The Creation of a Consciousness Shift, and co-founder of SHIFT>, a social community focused on anchoring in the new paradigm and assisting the positive transformation of humanity.

Occult Symbology in Applause by Lady Gaga Gaga’ comeback after her Reprogramming, er, I mean broken hip, with the first single off the forthcoming ArtPop. Picking up where she left off with her ongoing reveal about the nature and price of Fame – she’s back to the dark murky realm of the Occult Elite of course. And the same slew of symbols are imaginatively regurgitated every Gags’ video. This carousel of theatre is for sure art directed by Inez and Vinoodh (who sound like they could be a pair of kinky Hindu gods) but directed ? No. Gags and her Masters at Universal, it is clear to those with eyes to see, are firmly the ones really directing this show. There’s an blitz of occult symbols here and blatant mind control references. Again. It’s not like all her other videos haven’t offered the same up, Born This Way, Marry the Night, You and I, Telephone etc, the videos all contain loads of mind control references. The lyric ‘Live for the applause’ is the perfect cynical anthem for the vapid celebrity saturated pop culture lapped up by the mass market.  Indeed the could video stand as a stylistically sarcastic taunt at the ‘sheeple’ for lapping up the lamestream slop served to them. “For one’s eye only…that’s all I’ve got to give..”   FAME in all Its Guises The Core Personality: The mad dishevelled brunette locked in an asylum type setting with only a mattress for company represents Gags the core personality from which all the other ‘alters’ to come are spun out from by her handlers through trauma, abuse and electroshock. She certainly looks like she has been through the wringer. Entertainment slaves like Marilyn are often naturally brunette before they are transformed to externally embody their blonde Venus/sex kitten personas. ‘The ultimate alter ego of the artist’ is represented by the mythic Commedia Del Arte ‘sad clown’- the Peirrot ‘face’ of Applause. Gags’ own version is particularly deranged of course, and recalls infamous clown faces of the tragic Anna Nicole Smith and Heath Ledger’s The Joker. It’s hommage on one hand to pantomime and Liza Minelli but it’s also a nod to psychotic drugs being administered and the creation of multiple personalities!   The most blatant mind control saga in this video is the deranged Marilyn Monroe in the birdcage. Ok so people in birdcages is shorthand for the personality contained. in a cage. not free…So Gag’s Marilyn has just had a particularly heavy electroshock session by the looks of it.   (Before Britney and Anna Nicole, Marilyn was the original system produced mind controlled entertainment slave, the beta sex kitten prototype, and now every Hollywood starlet must hommage to her in Mario Testino shoot at some point…)     Just an Illusion: The allusion to Magic is two-fold in Applause. Magic tricks are just tricks, so when Gags comes out of a hat, we get what she’s saying. Fame is all an illusion! You are being hood winked. Fact: Top Hats are also a symbol of elite society.     The other kind of Magic really on show here in the video and it’s spelt with a K on the end as in Magick and the is kind Aleister Crowley was into. And thus the classic symbols of Satanism are foistered upon us in the usual music video way: mainly the head of Baphomet: Through out the video there are very many frequent very quick flashes of Gags backlit as a dark angel figure. THIS arguably has the cumulative  subliminal effect of seeing the shape of Baphomet’s head every few seconds. Baphomet is a very ancient symbol possibly hardwired into some deep level of our consciousness, like the Cross. Anyway, It is all well and good and appropriate because Gag’s dark angel is probably Lucifer and by the looks of it she’s getting bit of an orgy-ritual together…   Black Swan hybrid/Golden Goose/Siren What he have here is an imaginative hybrid of archetypes Emerging from a hair covered Egg (a recurring Gaga motif), symbolizing the course of Nature perverted, Gags is the Satanic music industry’s golden goose, so far, every egg/hit she lays has the Midas Touch.   She’s also reminiscent of a Siren, the half bird half human Underworld creature from Greek mythology that lured sailors to their doom upon the rocks with their beautiful song. There’s a nod towards ‘Black Swan’ here, perhaps alludes to the dark ‘cracked’ personality theme that runs through the Natalie Portman film. The fact this genetic hybrid breathes fire conjures also the ancient alchemy of dragons and the creation of a new myth, a new God – part Siren, part dragon, part human. The whole video builds to a crescendo wave as is the wont of a ritual, to when a sacrifice is offered. In this case it’s Perez Hilton’s leg (Gags currently has a stunt fight going on with the gossip queen)Gags is perhaps the Virgin archetype here, with a gory twist, she’s holding what looks like a severed leg, complete with flesh dingles, but only seconds earlier was an Olympic kind of torch, with feminine, virginal roses coming out of it.   The Ritual Climax approaches by 3.15secs including a glitter bomb and Gags giving an electroshock/Demon possession re-enactment  for her zombie dancers (Electro Shock Therapy can be used alongside trauma to split the mind into multiple personalities) In the choreographed ‘popstar at work’ sequence the aggressive cold sexuality really grabs you…well, her, actually, the hands that are grabbing Gags as part of her SO CONCEPTUAL OUTFIT, remind us oh so subtly of hidden ‘handlers’, literally very ‘hands on’ all over their no1 music industry slave. The literal ‘choker’ is a nice touch. One imagine it tightens if she forgets a dance step…or doesn’t cover one eye enough…cue evil laugh.perhaps Simon Cowell’s. So yeah some shadowy hands can switch her personality at whim, like a switch…. cos the next SECOND those hands are now conjuring Gags as VENUS out of a cauldron.   YES, Venus, the Roman goddess of Love and Femininity and her Egyptian predecessor Isis is a central mystery school figure  recently stamped very discreetly all over Rihanna’s midriff. We know this is Venus due to her strategically placed SHELLS.   POST ORGASM/SACRIFICE After the electro shock frenzy (Gag’s psychotic orgasm you could say) and the leg/Olympic torch sacrifice /offering, there’s right at the end some frantic and very-cool-for-the-little monsters-type-hand-movements, spelling out very quickly ARTPOP and the last frame is this (if Gags was already the Empress of the One Eyed Salute now she is the Grand Tzaress. There’s more ‘One eyes’ than you can shake a masonic compass at in the vid.   IN conclusion Between plenty of One Eye action, the Baphomet head and an electro shocked, caged Marilyn, it’s clear that FAMA according to Gaga and her industry mentors is pretty dark sided. Also it’s clear that STILL nothing in pop culture is cooler than mind control and occult symbols. So cool. like who cares what they mean! Like you don’t really think any of that shit means anything do you?   Significance of the Length of Applause the song @ 3.33secs 1. Three (3) is the first sacred number, and represents the Pagan Trinity. It is represented geometrically in the triangle, and spiritually as the Third Eye Of Hinduism. Occultists will multiply and add three to other sacred numbers to create new numbers. However, they also group threes in two’s and threes, because they believe in the principle of “intensification”, i.e., that greater power is achieved when a sacred number is grouped. In the case of three, greater intensification is achieved when it is shown as 33, or 333. 333 + 333 equals 666. Occultists have used 333 as the hidden symbol by which they present the more offensive number 666. When the details of an event are so arranged as to contain certain sacred occult numbers or numeric combinations, this is literally an occult signature on the event. Mathematically, 666 can be created when three pairs of threes are added. Thus, (3+3) + (3+3) + (3+3) = 666. Now, eliminate the parentheses and the plus sign, and you have 33 space, 33 space, 33, representing the number 666.

Global Leadership – It’s Broke and it Needs Fixing After reading many well expressed and passionately motivated article about the problems with our world, and the leaders that guide it, an analogy I once heard of a sick and dying tree always comes to mind. The people in the village where the tree was located loved this tree, it was a holy tree to them, and they could not understand why it was sick, or why the leaves on some branches were starting to turn yellow and fall to the ground. As the villagers knew very little about trees, they worked with what they could see and they diagnosed the tree’s problem as coming from the yellow turning leaves. So following this reasoning they started to treat the sick leaves and the breaches they were connected to, in hope of stopping the spreading of the disease, and this practice of treating the leaves went on until nearly all the leaves had fallen off the tree. Fortunately an old wise traveler was passing through the village that knew something about trees and assessed that the problem was not coming from the individual leave and branches but from the root of the tree, which he proceeded to treat. In a short period the tree recovered and the villagers were wiser for the experience. Sometimes when I hear or read well educated and articulate people commenting on the problems of the world I can’t help but think that their approach to understanding global issues seem very much like the villagers diagnosing the tree’s problem, looking at the individual leaves for the cause. For example, war was the subject of the article that inspired these comments, and to talk about individual wars or individual war mongers will have you going round in circles and not really looking at the root cause of the problem. One of the more powerful commentaries on war in our society, which presents a convincing argument on how war is used by our world leaders, comes from one of the most controversial book of the last millennium, The Report from Iron Mountain, where it’s stated “Although war is “used” as an instrument of national and social policy, the fact that a society is organized for any degree of readiness for war supersedes its political and economic structure. War itself is the basic social system, within which other secondary modes of social organization conflict or conspire. It is the system which has governed most human societies of record, as it is today. Once this is correctly understood, the true magnitude of the problems entailed in a transition to peace—itself a social system, but without precedent except in a few simple pre-industrial societies—becomes apparent”. The report goes onto say; “It must be emphasized that the precedence of a society’s war-making potential over its other characteristics is not the result of the “threat” presumed to exist at any one time from other societies. This is the reverse of the basic situation; “threat” against the “national interest” are usually created or accelerated to meet the changing needs of the war system. Only in comparatively recent times has it been considered politically expedient to euphemize war budgets as “defense” requirements. The necessity for governments to dis- tinguish between “aggression” (bad) and “defense” (good) has been a by-product of rising literacy and rapid communication. The distinction is tactical only, a concession to the growing inadequacy of ancient war-organizing political rationales”. Regardless of the controversy surrounding the report’s authenticity, I believe the document has accomplished what the wise old traveler had archived in our analogy, diagnosed the root cause of the problem. We can hear the stories and lies presented to us on a daily bases through corporate media about how our governments are working towards peace, or how our “Defense Forces” are attacking impoverished countries with no history of aggression towards us under the pretense of preserving our freedom. As supported in the above quoted report, this media smoke screen covers up the most sinister, and most obvious fact of our time; the global war system dominates our social and economic systems, not the other way around, and that none of our world leaders with any weight to their status, are trying to change this situation. Leadership establishes the culture of an organisation or enterprise, and as I had encountered when I was a consultant for companies helping them implement risk management systems into their general management structure, I had found that if the most senior person at the top of a company had a big appetite for risk and a low regard for safety, that is the culture that would prevail throughout all levels of the organisation, and is that any different to what happens within government structures? As the Report from Iron Mountain highlights; to move from a war system to a peace system would not be easy, if at all possible, and it would require leadership decisions devoid of self and/or national interests. If we accept the concept that we live in a world dictated by the system of war, and that leadership decisions made on a daily bases have their foundations in securing dominance within this system, then what we see and hear on a daily bases with regards to the war machine makes perfect sense. If this situation is to change we need to stop focusing on the symptoms of this global military disease and go to the root of the problem, LEADERSHIP. However, to change from a war culture to a peace culture would require a radical shift in the attitude from our present global oligarchy and the economic powers that support, and often dictate global activities to our elected leaders. The only other alternative in securing support from our global commanders for a shift away from a dominant war system to a peace system would be major leadership change, which at this stage seems highly unlikely. If our current leaders use the constant pretense of a threat to our nation’s boarders for staging war, we really need to start questioning this concept we have towards ‘Defense’ and ‘Boarders’, and have a good look at what boarders truly represent. Putting it simply; boarders represent the enclosure of land, and ownership/control over anything inside these enclosures. Inside these boarders we have a lot of other smaller enclosures that are surrounded with fences and other boundary markers. The British monarchy has a long history of Enclosure dating back to the early 11th century, and is also the policy they enforced in most countries they colonized. We are constantly brainwashed by our trusted leaders with the illusions of freedom. This illusion is fed to us every day by through the education system and corporate media, and we lap it up, knowing full well that the managers of these enclosures, our governments, can take our freedom and possessions away from us anytime they want. Their ability to exercise these executive powers is increased tenfold during times of boarder disputes and conflicts. If you look at Google Earth and look down on a country like the USA, and then zoom in past the country’s boarders, and past the state boarders, the county and city boarders, right down to the suburban white picket fence….. Now remove the illusion of freedom, ownership, human rights, freedom of speech from the picture and it starts to look very much like any other cattle or a sheep farm, where the human cattle, the sheeple occupants are being fed and fattened on an unnatural diet of lies and proper gander. The question should not be why we are fighting wars to protect our boarders, and this illusion of freedom, but why we have these boarders at all, and why do the majority of our world’s most powerful political and economic leaders wish to maintain these boundaries, military institutions, and these human farms they call countries.
