Help California Split Up, 2069 The Still Report

- Natural Hemp Oil - Use promocode: BillStill for 10% off. Vets get 15% off. https://Naturalhempoil.com Petition URL: https://tinyurl.com/SR2069 Good evening, Im still reporting on: Help California Split Up, 2069 Synopsis: This is a rather complicated topic which will take several reports to unfold fully, but today we're just going to start by plugging a petition mounted by citizens of 23 northern California counties who are petitioning President Trump to allow these counties to split off and form a new state, to be called Jefferson, the 51st state. If 100,000 signatures are gathered by March 22, then President Trump has to take a serious look at this idea. Although the President would not decide the issue, he could certainly inject a hearty boost to this long-sought remedy. The idea is nothing new, in fact, it has been done 4 times already in U.S. history. Article 4, Section 3 of the U.S. Constitution spells out how a state split is to be accomplished. "1: New States may be admitted by the Congress into this Union; but no new State shall be formed or erected within the Jurisdiction of any other State; nor any State be formed by the Junction of two or more States, or Parts of States, without the Consent of the Legislatures of the States concerned as well as of the Congress." The process, known as a state partition proposal, has been used effectively 3 times: - in 1792 when Kentucky split off from Virginia - in 1802 when Maine split off from Massachusetts - in 1863 when West Virginia split off from Virginia In California, the most populous state in the US, and the third largest after Alaska and Texas, has been the subject of more than 220 state partition proposals since 1850. Southern California attempted three times to separate from Northern California, in 1855, 1859 and in the later 1800s discussions were held over a number of years because of the difficulty of traversing the mountains above Los Angeles. This was finally solved with the creation of a highway across these mountains which later became Interstate 5. But the issues are entirely different today. Today the issue is over the lack of representation created by not expanding the number of state assembly persons and senators to match population growth. This originally was a plot to deprive the burgeoning Chinese population of having proper representation in California decades ago, but it has subsequently morphed into the counties surrounding the Bay Area - San Francisco, and those surrounding Los Angeles now completely dominating the legislative process.

Quinn Slobodians *Globalists* Marginal REVOLUTION

The subtitle is The End of Empire and the Birth of Neoliberalism.  Imagine a novel and interesting coverage of the post-war Austrian School, here relabeled the Geneva School, a well-done partial history of the WTO and EU, and a book where the central characters are not only Mises and Hayek, but also Alexander Rstow, Wilhelm Rpke, and Michael Heilperin.

And its written by a Wellsley historian who appears to be entirely sane and responsible throughout.

The main lesson, and here these are my own words not those directly of the author, is that various liberals came to realize that their dreams for a free world order in fact involved quite an extensive international legal apparatus, far removed from the traditional nightwatchman state.  The EU and the Four Freedoms are in this view the actual instantiation of historic classical liberalism, arguably more than anything the United States has done of late.  And if you dont like the over-regulation and excess bureaucracy of the EU, well maybe youd better realize those are difficult to avoid secondary consequences of having the international law be so strong as to actually constrain state power (again my words, not Slobodian, though his book may lead you to this idea).

Wilhelm Rpke it turns out is the (a?) bad guy, and I have to say I always considered him a third-rate, misguided agrarian thinker.  It turns out his views on Africa were not entirely sound, and furthermore he sought to pull the rest of the liberals away their economic libertarianism, keeping in mind that Hayek already favored a social welfare state and socialized health insurance, among other interventions.

I folded over 12 separate pages in this book, which is considerably higher than average.

That all said, I dont quite buy onto the whole story.  I read Hayek as rebelling against the vanquished Austro-Hungarian Empire, rather than keeping it as a mental model for reform.  Nor am I persuaded by the idea of a identifiable Geneva School, whether as an independent group or as a sub-branch of the Austrians.  In my view, the connections running through Geneva are historical ones (various people and institutions got put there), not intellectual in nature.  Haberler and Machlup I would have c...

Leading Consciousness Researcher Bridges the Gap Between Science and Real Magic The Event Chronicle

By Dylan Charles

Is magic real? Sure it is, which is why theres such a long and storied history of it in every human civilization, and why so many people practice it everyday, whether they realize it or not.

Magic is one of the most enduring legends of humanity. Its at the core of the esoteric traditions, it saturates the literature of religion and science, and while it has been severely suppressed for millennia, fictional stories about magic are just as popular today as theyve ever been. [IONS]

Dean Radin, PhD, is Chief Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Science (IONS) and Associated Distinguished Professor of Integral and Transpersonal Psychology at theCalifornia Institute of Integral Studies (CIIS). Having explored the frontiers of human consciousness for decades, he is one of the worlds leading parapsychologists.

Among the many thousands of scientific papers, journals, articles and books he has written, his forthcoming work, Real Magic: Ancient Wisdom, Modern Science, and a Guide to the Secret Power of the Universe, will explore the links between magic and science.

Real magic, he notes, consists of three categories: Divination (think Tarot reading, The I Ching), force of will (The Secret, Power of Intention), and theurgy (shamanism, channeling), and magical thinking is everywhere today, seen as superstitions and prayer.

Drawing a distinction between real magic and fake or fictional magic, Radin explains:

When you think about magic, were talking about ancient ideas, and in the same way that alchemy turned into chemistry, and that astrology turned into astronomy, more or less, herbalism turned into the pharmaceutical world, theres a fourth level of what used to be called natural magic, which will turn into real magic at some point.
Whats interesting is that alchemy, astrology and herbalism all had elements of mental magic in them, but those parts have been left out in the scientific domain....

Newt's Fix for School Shootings, 2067 The Still Report

Jeevy Computers: Move up to business-level computer protection. 800-844-8613 http://jeevycomputers.com/pcs/ Good morning, Im still reporting on: Newt's Fix for School Shootings, 2067 Synopsis: Good morning. I'm still reporting on guns. A word to the leftist hate-America crowd. You will NEVER kill the 2nd Amendment protection of every citizen to own guns. NEVER, AIN'T GONNA HAPPEN IF YOU LIVE TO BE A THOUSAND YEARS OLD Now let me say that I've been an NRA member since I was 10 years old - on and off - when I could afford it. Have you ever been in traffic and even though there are 3 lanes going each way there is a 3-lane running roadblock going on and you can't get by. My fantasy is to arm my vehicle with James Bond-like miniature weapons pods under the headlights that fire tiny, heat-seeking rockets with a large firecracker - like an M-80 - as a warhead that would run up the tailpipe of the slowpoke in the left lane. The device would explode inside the muffler - not enough to hurt anyone, but enough to blow one of the muffler seems open so suddenly that vehicle would sound like it was running with "open pipes" down the interstate. The driver would immediately pull off the road to see what was going on and I would be freed to get to work on time. The only problem with this in the real world, is I'd have to have an entire clip of 30 of them lined up to satisfy one week's worth of me getting to act on my impatience. Well, what if such a weapon was given to a kid driving his first hot rod? He would use a full 30-round magazine every Saturday night, and it when multiplied by a thousand in every town in the US on every Saturday night, it would be chaos that would soon lead to carnage.

UN to vote on urgent help for Syrias Eastern Ghouta The BRICS Post

Russia has vetoed several draft resolutions on Syria which it says are unfair and biased, often following fabricated evidence [Xinhua]

The United Nations Security Council is expected to vote on a new resolution calling for a 30-day ceasefire in Syria, following reports of heavy fighting and mass casualties near the capital Damascus.

Russia had called for the Security Council to meet to discuss the resolution, while Kuwait and Sweden called for a vote.

A draft of the resolution says the UN is outraged at the unacceptable levels of violence seen in the past few days in the Ghouta district of Damascus and Idlib province.

The UN says at least 340 people have been killed in Eastern Ghouta since February 4.

The expected vote on the resolution comes a day after UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres urged an immediate cessation of hostilities in these areas.

I am deeply saddened by the terrible suffering of the civilian population in Eastern Ghouta, 400,000 people that live in hell on earth, Guterres told the Security Council.

He called on humanitarian aid to be delivered to the needy and for all parties to the conflict to allow the evacuation of an estimated 700 people that need urgent medical treatment.

This is a human tragedy that is unfolding in front of our eyes, said Guterres.

Meanwhile, Russias UN Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia said that a 30-day ceasefire is unrealistic and difficult to enforce.

The Russian Defense Ministry on Thursday said that efforts to broker a ceasefire in Eastern Ghouta have failed because the Islamist anti-government factions there are digging in and refusing to surrender their weapons.

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has blamed them for the continuing fighting.

The Ministrys spokesman Major-General Yuri Yevtushenko also said the humanitarian situation there was getting critical.

US Ambassador to the UN Nikii Haley has said that its time to take immediate action to save civilians who are under attack from the Syrian army.

Eastern Ghouta cannot wait, she said.

Tough budgetary choices put South Africa on a fiscally sustainable path The BRICS Post

This is the challenge of our time, to build a South Africa in which all people have a decent standard of living, access to economic opportunities and opportunity to pursue their dreams. Malusi Gigaba Budget Speech February 2018

Minister of Finance Knowledge Malusi Nkanyezi Gigaba says South Africa must confront and overcome a number of challenges if it is to sustain growth [GCIS]


In his briefing to journalists before his budget Speech, Finance Minister Malusi Gigaba was at pains to point out that the media should look at the budget holistically and not just focus on a few points such as raising taxes.

We have a positive narrative to tell and that is reflected in the raising of our gross domestic product (GDP) growth projections. We have taken the tough decisions to put us on a fiscally sustainable path while at the same time undertaking growth enhancing initiatives, he said.

After several years during which economic growth undershot our projections, we now see the improved growth projections for 2018 and subsequent years as a floor, rather than a ceiling. We are convinced that as business and consumer confidence return, and as government follows through on its commitments to enable growth with prudent, fast and decisive action, we can exceed our growth projections, he said in his Budget speech.

The toughest choice to make was raising the Value-Added Tax (VAT) rate from 14 per cent to 15 per cent, which puts it on a par with neighbouring states. This is the first VAT rate increase since 1993 and the first done by an African National Congress government. It will add R22.9 billion ($2 billion) to revenue every year.

The other tough choices involved cutting state expenditure, as programmes that were not efficient were cut. The total saving over the next three years was R85 billion, but these savings were to a certain extent offset by the additional R57 billion needed to provide free tertiary education.

The bottom line is that at the time of the October 2017 MTBPS, gross national debt was projected to breach 60 per cent of GDP in 2021/22, and continue rising thereafter. This Treasury projection reflected major revenue shortfalls, weak economic growth and a limited policy response. It prompted a sell-off in the rand in October and November 2017.

The outlook also represented a major departure from the 2017 Budget figures, which previously showed the debt-to-GDP ratio declining from 2018/19 onward.

In the 2018 Budget, the combination of higher GDP growth, a narrower deficit, a stronger currency and lower borrowing rates results in an improv...

The Death Economy Stories by umair haque on Medium

School Shootings (and Opioid Epidemics) Add to GDP. The Economy Weve Built Gets Life and Death Upside Down.

Heres a tiny question. Have you ever wondered how the economy can be doing wellwhile kids massacre each other regularly at schools? After all, an economy, if its anything at all, is about how well we live. And yet, American economics presents us with a strange paradox: peoples lives can be falling apart while the economy roars.

Why is that? Lets consider the example of school shootings. What happens in response to each one? Well, active shooter drills are now sold to schools. Thats a whole new industry. Gun sales roar and gun stocks soar. Parents spend more money monitoring their kids, trying to keep them safeeven buying them bulletproof gear. So the economy growseven as kids become less and less safe by the day.

Doesnt that make you a little uncomfortable? Isnt that a little, well, intuitively wrong that an economy should grow on the back of dead kids, while the living one and their parents are overwhelmed by anxiety, insecurity, and dread? In what sane universe does selling a school an active shooter drill count as beneficial economic activity?

Lets think a few years into the future.

One day, there is another shooting at a school. Poor kids are now tragically dead. We arm teachers. Cha-ching. Gun industry profits soaras they do after every mass shooting, sadly. We warn parents to buy bulletproof vests and backpacks. Cha-ching! We install metal detectors and checkpoints in schools. Cha-ching, cha-ching. We put cameras in every hallway and give kids monitoring bracelets to wear. Cha-ching! Profitwhich adds up to the growth of GDP, which is just the sum of profits. In all the ways above, perversely, a little monstrously, GDP grows as a result of school shootingsbut it wouldnt if we enacted gun laws.

But does it fall when there arent school shootings? There is a kid. He is not earning anything. There is another one. She is not contributing anything to the economy. They are pure consumerssoaking in education. They have nothing yet to give. Its true that their parents spend money on thembut they would spend that money elsewhere, in different ways in the absence of kidsmaybe on puppies, or vacation homes. Fewer kids, less taxes: educating children is a drain on the public purse, money that might be spent precisely on things like guns. So because it results in no greater profit, the well-being of children adds precisely nothing to the economyin fact, it subtracts from it.

(Now you know as well as I do that theres a better solutiongun laws. But let us continue with our exampleto understand this disconnect between well-being and economic growth.)

The Saturn / Moon Matrix: Mind Control Platform for Earth The Event Chronicle

Must Watch Presentation by David Icke

Commentary by enerchi, AscensionWithEarth.Com

February 21, 2018

One of the best presentations ever created by David Icke, exposing the Saturn and Moon matrix that has mind controlled humanity for thousands if not millions of years.  The beings who are associated with the Saturn Councils, gods, and secret groups from earth have been indoctrinating humanity on a conscious and subconscious level for generations.

Some of these groups are now coming to the forefront acting as benevolent races, which some are, but these groups and beings have also been controlled and still are by the Saturn Councils/Elohim/False Gods for untold millennia.

As David Icke has said before, those in power create the problem, which creates a reaction from the chaos, and the same malevolent beings then present a solution.  Some of these Solutions are now coming to the forefront at this amazing time of humanities Ascension/Spiritual Awakening.  See the mind matrix for what it is and remember your own true powers come from within you.

Those who are awake will connect many dots after viewing this presentation.  Those who protest that the Gods/Elohim/Councils/Guardians from Saturn are trustworthy and benevolent should watch this research presentation from David Icke.  It may change your perspective and shatter your belief system.  Highly recommended to watch!

Some of these Saturn controlled groups are now preparing for evacuation from the current time-line of earth.  They are creating temporal time anomalies that are created in a void outside of humanities current ascension time-line.  These Saturn groups will enter these time voids and move to another time line as they believe they cannot survive the earth/sun/humanity spiritual frequency shift.

The end of the Saturn matrix is coming but please be aware that there is still an active campaign to harvest souls though different variations of religious and new age propaganda.

I also highly recommend a 3 hour presentation from George Kavassilas which exposes the false god matrix and Saturn systems of control.  I have posted it previously but if you missed it, you can view it at this link here..  https://youtu.be/tjde9yPFL7w

NATO to open new command centers in US & Germany Follow The Money

The US and Germany are set to become the locations of two new NATO headquarters, according to officials. The German command center would reportedly be responsible for deploying troops after a possible incursion from Russia.

Speaking to Bloomberg on condition of anonymity, NATO officials said the US will become home to a command center focused on maritime security in the Atlantic.

Defense News, also citing officials, said the headquarters will be a national office run by Americans until activated by NATO in a time of crisis. At which point, the command would be under the control of NATOs supreme commander.

Let the robots take our jobs and pay for a universal basic income

As developments in artificial intelligence and robotics advance, there is going to be a severe and swift disruption of many working classes. Large swaths of laborers are going to lose their jobs, leading to unprecedented levels of unemployment.

To account for this problem, having access to basic needs should become a right, not a privilege for the non-automated classes. It should be the responsibility of the corporations that have taken away working-class jobs to grant families this rightand the best solution would be in the form of a universal basic income.

UBI, an economic proposition in which a sum of money is regularly paid to a population, could be a vital bulwark against the unintended consequences of automation in the workforce. Companies will profit significantly from workforce automation, so the private sector will be able to afford shouldering this burden, while at the same...

In an attempt to encourage the ICO market and blockchain technology, FINMA has clarified how standards around anti-money laundering and securities regulations could be applied to virtual currencies.

The only real solution to Too Big To Fail TheMoneyIllusion

In a recent post I suggested that higher capital requirements might be called for if policymakers were unwilling to bite the bullet and remove moral hazard from our financial system.

The FT has a new article discussing a Treasury proposal to end Too Big To Fail, by setting up a new type of bankruptcy for big banks.  I wish them well, but remain skeptical.  In my view, the only way well ever be able to remove moral hazard is with monetary policy reform.  If we can get to a policy of NGDPLT, then policymakers will no longer have to worry about the consequences of the failure of a big bank.  Unfortunately, thats likely to take many decades, as we first need to implement the policy, and then see how it does during a period of financial distress.  Only then would policymakers begin to feel comfortable rolling back TBTF.  (And even then, special interest groups will try to keep it in place.)

PS.  The NYT has a new post showing that historians view Trump as being the worst President in American history.  Thats also my view.  Some people judge presidential performance by how the country is doing.  Thats about like judging my blogging based on how monetary policy is doing.  A couple posts Id recommend are Yuval Levin explaining why Trump is not actually the President, in the conventional sense of the term.  Hes not qualified to be President, so day-to-day decisions are made by others.  Thus the GOP deep state wisely vetoed his recent attempt at crony capitalism, which would have re-regulated the coal and nuclear industry as a backdoor way of bailing them out.  The outcome was good, but Trumps specific input into the process was destructive.  Matt Yglesias also has a good post, explaining why Trump is much more corrupt that even lots of left-of-center reporters assume.

Russiaphobia Is Out of Control PaulCraigRoberts.org

Russiaphobia Is Out of Control

Paul Craig Roberts

As has been made perfectly clear, Muellers indictment of 13 Russians and 3 companies is just another hoax. See: https://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2018/02/16/result-muellers-investigation-nothing/ and: http://www.moonofalabama.org/2018/02/mueller-indictement-the-russian-influence-is-a-commercial-marketing-scheme.html

All Mueller has found is a bait-click commercial marketing scheme that had nothing to do with election interference.

Why is Mueller comfortable bringing a transparently false indictment?

The answer is, as Glenn Greenwald makes clear ( https://theintercept.com/2018/02/19/a-consensus-emerges-russia-committed-an-act-of-war-on-par-with-pearl-harbor-and-911-should-the-u-s-response-be-similar/ ) that Mueller knows there are large numbers of warmongering politicians and media whores who will seize on the fake indictment as proof that Russia has committed an act of war equivalent to Pearl Harbor and 9/11. The fact that what Mueller has indicted is only a bait-click marketing scheme will never be mentioned by politicians and presstitutes shouting the military/security complexs slogan that Russia must be punished.

Greenwald supplies the names of some of these reckless and irresponsible people who are willing to bring on war with their rants: politicians Hillary Clinton, John McCain, Jeanne Shaheen, Jerry Nadler, Marco Rubioindeed almost all of CongressClinton aides such as Philippe Reines and John Podesta, and the legions of presstitutes such as Karen Tumulty, David Frum, Chuck Todd, Tom Friedmanindeed, the entirety of the print and TV media with the exceptions of Tucker Carlson and Pat Buchanan.

When a country armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons and overwhelmed by its own exceptionalism and indispensability has political and media lunatics equating a bait-click commercial marketing scheme with Pearl Harbor, that country is a recipe for the end of the world.

Note: Two presstitutes at Bloomberg, Lauren Etter and Ilya Arkhipov think that filming disadvantaged Americans in order to cast the US in a bad light is the same as interfering in the presidential election, and they think that a Russian food caterer is heading a Russian disinformation campaign....

In Unexpected Twist, Judge In Flynn Case Asks Mueller For Exculpatory Evidence The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

The federal judge assigned to the criminal case against Trumps former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn has ordered Special Counsel Robert Mueller to turn over any exculpatory evidence to Flynns defense team.

Oddly, however, Flynns legal team did not make this request. Instead, Judge Emmet G. Sullivan issued the order sua sponte, or at his discretion, invoking the Brady Rule which requires prosecutors to turn over previously unfiled evidence that might have a material impact on a defendants case. Interestingly, two days before the order Mueller filed a motion for an agreed-upon protective order regarding the use of evidence in the case, including sensitive materials, provided to Flynns lawyers by the office of the Special Counsel.


Judge Emmet G. Sullivan

As The Hill notes, Sullivan dinged federal prosecutors in the trial of former Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) for misconduct in failing to turn over exculpatory evidence.

The development has generated a significant buzz in conservative circles, with the implication being that perhaps Flynn might not have pleaded guilty in light of certain evidence.

Judge Andrew Napolitano addressed Sullivans decision on Tuesday, saying The judge on his own, not in response to any application from General Flynns lawyers says, By the way, I want all exculpatory evidence, evidence that could help Flynn or hurt the government turned over to Flynns lawyers.

Why would he we want that after General Flynn has already pleaded guilty? That is unheard of. He must suspect a defect in the guilty plea. Meaning, he must have reason to believe that General Flynn pleaded guilty for some reason other than guilt.

The more we learn about his involvement in the deep states illicit targeting of President Trump, the more reason the American people have to question both his motives and his management as director of the FBI, the now-disgraced agency he headed before Trump fired him on May 16, 2017. Comey has left a trail of suspicious activities in his wake.

Comey now looms large over a burgeoning constitutional crisis that could soon overshadow Watergate at its worst. To deepen the crisis even further, it now appears some of Comeys former FBI and Justice Department colleagues continue to protect him from accountability.

Three suspicious activities stand out, all intertwined: The so-called Comey Memos, Comeys controversial testimony before the Senate Intelligence Committee and Comeys book deal.

After Comey was fired by President Trump on May 9, 2017, he arranged to give the New York Times a Feb. 14, 2017 memorandum he had written about a one-on-one conversation with Trump regarding former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn. The New York Times published a report about the memo on May 16, 2017. Special Counsel Robert Mueller was appointed the following day.

On June 8, 2017, Comey testified under oath before the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, where he stated he authored as many as nine such memos. Regarding the Flynn memo, Comey admitted: I asked a friend of mine to share the content of the memo with a reporter [for The New York Times]. I didnt do it myself for a variety of reasons, but I asked him to because I thought that might prompt the appointment of a special counsel. 

Comey also testified about President Trumps firing of him, and he detailed multiple conversations with President Trump, during which Comey confirmed he told President Trump three times that he was not a target of investigation. Judicial Watch is...

Russia Warns US To Stop Playing With Fire In Syria, Immediately Leave Area It Controls The Event Chronicle

Is Russia Using Weapons Developed with Extraterrestrial Help in Syria Civil War?

By Zero Hedge

Two weeks after a US B-52 strike killed scores of Russian mercenaries in Syria, which according to Bloomberg and Reuters were are as many as 200, while Russia said no more than 5 Russians were killed in the attack then promptly refused to discuss the embarrassing topic further, Moscow has clearly not forgotten this latest and most serious escalation in the 7-year-old proxy war, and on Monday Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the Trump administration not to play with fire as he lashed out at the U.S. over what he described as its provocative support for autonomy-seeking Kurds in Syria, while urging US troops in the area of Al-Tanf to leave immediately.

Speaking to a Moscow audience at the Valdai Club conference on the Middle East, Lavrov said that US troops must immediately cease operations in the Southern Syria area of Al-Tanf, adding that he once again calls on our American colleagues not to play with fire and measure their steps proceeding not from immediate needs of todays political environment, but rather from long-term interests of the Syrian people and of all peoples of this region, including the Kurds, of course, the Russian top diplomat was quoted as saying by TASS News Agency.

Lavrov was referring to an area on Syrias border with Jordan and Ira...

The Big Pharma Family that Brought Us the Opioid Crisis The Event Chronicle

Were not talking El Chapo or any of his drug-running buddies. Were talking about the mega-billionaire family behind one of Americas most profitable drug-industry empires, the privately held Purdue Pharma.

By Sam Pizzigati

If the devil wears Prada, what do Americas most destructive drug pushers wear? They wear smiles. The drug pushers we have in mind here have caused hundreds of thousands of deaths, enough fatalities to decrease overall U.S. life expectancy at birth for the last two years running. Yet no police SWAT teams have pounded down any doors hunting these drug pushers down.

These particular drug pushers have devastated millions of families across the United States. Yet some of Americas most honorable institutions, outfits ranging from Yale University to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, have spent decades lauding their philanthropic generosity and benevolence.

Were obviously not talking El Chapo or any of his drug-running buddies here. Were talking about the mega-billionaire family behind one of Americas most profitable drug-industry empires, the privately held Purdue Pharma.

Last week, flacks at Purdue announced that the company will no longer be flooding doctors offices with sales representatives hawking OxyContin, the now-notorious opioid painkiller. This move may be the closest admission of guilt we will ever see from Purdue Pharma or the patriarchs of the Sackler family that gave it birth.

The roots of Purdues criminal profiteering, as Patrick Radden Keefe has chillingly related in the New Yorker, stretch all the way back to three brothers in mid-20th century Brooklyn. All three Arthur, Mortimer, and Raymond Sackler became doctors. All three had an entrepreneurial bent. Arthur had entrepreneurial genius.

Arthur Sackler saw that the pharmaceutical industry of his day had no clue to the marketing magic and magical profits that modern Madison Avenue advertising approa...

Their Objective Is To Create Fear The Event Chronicle

There is a famous quote by George Santayana that has many variants: Those who cannot learn from history are doomed to repeat it. There is another quote atributed to the Spanish philosopher that is equally appropriate: Fanaticism consists in redoubling your efforts when you have forgotten your aim.

However, the larger spiritual lesson should be, when you abandon the pursuit of balance and common sense, you inevitably end up spiraling to an extreme of duality. It matters not who claims to have the moral high ground. Those who make themselves judge and jury to weed out the devil, often end up becoming demonic themselves in their fanatical pursuit of justice. We are seeing this history repeat itself within the Social Justice Warrior movment. The social wheel of karma continues to turn when those who were once perceived as victims become the new victimizers. And as the wheel of karma turns, history repeats itself.

Yellowstone earthquake swarm in the same area as last summers Maple Creek swarm The Event Chronicle

By The Watchers

Another seismic swarm is taking place at Yellowstone National Park since February 8, 2018. The swarm started with just a few events per day and intensified on February 15. Earthquake swarms like this account for more than 50% of the seismic activity at Yellowstone, the Yellowstone Volcano Observatory said, adding that no volcanic activity has occurred from any past such events.

The location of the swarm is approximately the same as the last summers Maple Creek swarm, which included about 2 400 earthquakes during June September 2017.

In fact, the current swarm may be just a continuation of the Maple Creek swarm, given the ongoing but sporadic seismicity in the area over the past several months, YVO scientists said.

Close-up view of seismicity associated with the current swarm (red circles) compared to locations of the 2017 Maple Creek swarm (gray circles). YMC is the closest seismic station to the seismicity. Credit: USGS

The largest earthquake so far is M2.9 on February 18, followed bt M2.7 on February 21. More than 230 quakes were registered so far, all at about 8 km (5 miles) beneath the surface.

Earthquake swarms reflect changes in stress along small faults beneath the surface, and generally are caused by two processes: large-scale tectonic forces, and pressure changes beneath the surface due to accumulation and/or withdrawal of fluids (magma, water, and/or gas).

The area of the current swarm is subject to both processes, YVO explains. The largest historic earthquake in the region, the 1959 M7.3 Hebgen Lake event, was due to faulting that has its ultimate cause in the fact that the western United States i...

Fake News, Fake Money, How to Tell the Difference Beyond Money

Why is it so hard these days to tell fact from fiction? Who can be trusted to tell us whats really going on? Can the New York Times and Washington Post still be believed? And what about money? Can we still trust the dollar, the euro, the pound sterling? What supports national currencies, anyway? Is this Bitcoin thing real or fake money, and should I buy some?

Heres a compelling presentation by Andreas Antonopoulos, that addresses all of these questions. Antonopoulos is a technologist and entrepreneur and probably the most knowledgeable and insightful expert on bitcoin, blockchain technology and the profound changes that lie just ahead.

MUST WATCH!

Heres the YouTube link: https://youtu.be/i_wOEL6dprg

Now take a deep dive into the political realities of our time by watching this presentation by CIA officer Kevin Shipp, in which he exposes the Shadow Government and the Deep State. If you question his credibility here is a brief bio from Information Clearing House:

Kevin Shipp, former Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officer, intelligence and counter terrorism expert, held several high-level positions in the CIA. His assignments included protective agent for the Director of the CIA, counterintelligence investigator searching for moles inside the CIA, overseas counter terrorism operations officer, internal security investigator, assistant team leader for the antiterrorism tactical assault team, chief of training for the CIA federal police force and polygraph examiner. Mr. Shipp was the senior program manager for the Department of State, Diplomatic Security, Anti-Terrorism Assistance global police training program. He is the recipient of two CIA Meritorious Unit Citations, three Exceptional Performance Awards and a Medallion for high risk overseas operations. Website/book: fortheloveoffreedom.net

The End of (Artificial) Stability oftwominds-Charles Hugh Smith

The central banks'/states' power to maintain a permanent bull market in stocks and bonds is eroding.
There is nothing natural about the stability of the past 9 years. The bullish trends in risk assets are artificial constructs of central bank/state policies. As these policies are reduced or lose their effectiveness, the era of artificial stability is coming to a close.
The 9-year run of Bull-trend stability is ending as a result of a confluence of macro dynamics:
1. Central banks are under pressure to reduce, end or reverse their unprecedented monetary stimulus, and the consequences are unpredictable, given the market's reliance on the certainty that "central banks have our back" is ending.
2. Interest rates / bond yields may well plummet in a global recession, but if we look at a 50-year chart of interest rates, we see a saucer-shaped bottoming in play. Technician Louise Yamada has been discussing the tendency of interest rates/bond yields to trace out a multi-year saucer bottom for over a decade, and we can now discern this.

Elinor Ostrom's Rules for Radicals Grassroots Economic Organizing

Elinor Ostrom was the first woman to win the Nobel Prize for Economics. Her theorising of the commons has been celebrated as groundbreaking and opening the way for non-capitalist economic alternatives, yet, many radicals know little about her. This book redresses this, revealing the indispensability of her work for green politics, left economics and radical democracy.

Ostrom has often been viewed as a conservative or managerial thinker; but Derek Walls analysis of her work reveals a how it is invaluable for developing a left political programme in the twenty-first century. Central to Ostroms work was the move beyond panaceas; transforming institutions to widen participation, promote diversity and favour cooperation over competition. She regularly challenged academia as individualist, narrow and elitist and promoted a radical take on education, based on participation. Her investigations into how we share finite resources has radical implications for the Green movement and her rubric for a functioning collective ownership is highly relevant in order in achieving radical social change.

The Curious Case of Co-operative Capital Grassroots Economic Organizing

Cost-of-capital is central to economists thinking about how firms should (and do) invest their financial capital, and to measuring the value of a firm. Brent Hueth will argue that the cost of equity capital for many co-operative businesses is, if not zero, then close to it. He will interpret the relevance of this finding in the context of private capital structure and investment decision making, as well as public tax and regulatory treatment of co-operatives.

What is MK-ULTRA? The Event Chronicle

mkultra-deepstate-cia-mind-control-program

The rundown on this CIA Mind Control program that you need to know about.

Certain people will automatically call you a Conspiracy Theorist when they hear words like Deep State or Secret CIA Operation. This is by design and it plays right into why its important for you to educate yourself on this topic.

The MKULTRA program is a stain on our history that needs to be told from generation to generation. The proof of its existence was nearly all destroyed by Richard Helm, Head of the CIA, while the Watergate scandal was unfolding. That is why it is rarely talked about and you wont find it in your History books.

Several thousand documents have been declassified and made public through FOIA. These documents are available in the CIAs online library.

Some of which were released as recently as December 2016, after Donald Trump had won the Presidency.

What is MK-Ultra?

The United States was determined to figure out how to enslave someones mind in order to have them carry out nefarious acts upon receiving a trigger such as a verbal command or seeing an image.

The movie Manchurian Candidate is nearly entirely based on MK-Ultra. To put it simply, it is trauma based mind control carried out by the CIA.

MK-Ultra is often downplayed as just a CIA experiment on the effects of LSD but this couldnt be further from the truth. Its also important to note that the people subjected to this brutal, evil and inhumane treatment were unwilling participants.

How does MK-Ultra work?

They essentially put people, including children, through so much trauma that they retreat into different areas of their brain in order to compartmentalize the trauma that they are enduring.

Some examples of this trauma include: psychological and paralytic drugs, torture, rape, electroshock, sensory deprivation, ritualistic and occult like behavior. This is when the programming occurs.

After they get the individual into the desired state of mind, they are able to give them orders, operations, and a...

The UKs tight labour market and zero hours contracts Resolution Foundation

After five years of rapid increases, the number of people working on a zero hours contract has flat-lined in the UK over the past year. A tighter labour market may not yet be delivering increases in real pay, but it is slowly reshaping the type of work that we do for the better.

Its also welcome that todays employment statistics show that its not just the use of zero hours contracts (ZHCs) that has plateaued the numbers of people working as self-employed, part-time and as agency workers have all stopped rising over recent months.

But atypical employment is still too high. There are over 900,000 people working on a ZHCand over 800,000 people working as agency workers (up 25 per cent compared to pre-crisis levels). Part-time work is also elevated, accounting for a notably larger share of employment than it did before the crisis.

With all of these forms of work there will be an array of experiences for some, atypical work is a good way to spend a semi-retirement or to grab some extra hours between university terms. For others, however, this work is less positive recent Resolution Foundation research found that over a quarter of men working in low-paid part-time work wanted to work more hours than they currently did.

What of ZHC workers? Who are they and how do they feel about the hours they work? Well, today the ONS has published a suite of statistics focusing particularly on zero-hours contract workers. Newly buried in the big quarterly data release these fascinating numbers are now easy to miss, so it seems worthwhile to spell out some of the most important findings from todays data deluge.

Younger, and older, people are more likely to be on zero-hours contracts

The share of people working on a ZHC is much higher among those aged between 16 and 24 than any other age group. 1 in 12 people in work aged under 25 are on a ZHC, compared to around 1 in 50 of those aged between 25 and 64. This means that young people in work are 4 times more likely to be on a ZHC than older working-age adults.

Are mark-ups rising? Marginal REVOLUTION

In a new Stigler Center working paper, I) challenge this explanation by showing that public-firm market power has not substantially increased in recent decades. Using financial statement data from public firm filings and closely following De Loecker and Eeckhout (2017)s methodology, I calculate markupsprices over marginal costsfor the universe of non-utility, non-financial US public firms. Aggregating these markup estimates to annual estimates, I find that public firm markups increased only modestly since the 1980s. Moreover, this increase is within historical variationmeasured markups have increased from 1980-2010 as much as they have decreased from 1950-1980.

Why the disagreement? While De Loecker and Eeckhout (2017) use similar data sources and methods, I argue that they do not use the best accounting measure of variable cost.

Senate Grants A $1 Billion Handout To Save The Failing Dairy Industry The Event Chronicle

Senate Grants A $1 Billion Handout To Save The Failing Dairy Industry

By Alanna Ketler

As the modern-day consumer continues to opt for plant-based alternatives to milk, the dairy industry is failing and is now relying on government handouts to survive. Ive said it before and Ill say it again, these times are changing!

Last week, the United States senate signed a budget agreement to grant a whopping $1 Billion to the dairy and livestock industries. These funds allocated will be used for programs that are designed to help the dairy industry recover from a long-time slump in dairy prices. The industry has been affected by a number of different factors which include consumer habits and lifestyle.

Over the past several years, we have seen Americans opting towards plant-based alternatives. While we dont know exactly why, we can speculate that it has to do with the growing awareness of the horrors that take place on factory farms, the environmental implications, and more evidence that pasteurized milk from cows is making us sick. Whatever the reason the dairy industry is failing.

In 2016, dairy farmers across the nation dumped 43 million gallons of unsold milk into manure lagoons, fields and into animal feed. Last year, the surplus of milk hit 78 million gallons as dairy sales have been consistently on the decline. We have seen some larger dairy companies try to adapt to the changing consumer demands, such as Elmhurst Dairy, which has shifted its gears to nut milks, completely dropping dairy after 90 years.

How Your DNA is Affected by Quantum Intelligence The Event Chronicle

By Christina Sarich

Yes, you can change your DNA, but Quantum Intelligence alters it from a more profound (subtle yet powerful) energetic level that is measurable and real. Once we understand how Quantum Intelligence works, we can more easily help the process of altering our DNA along to achieve greater health, happiness, and remarkable spiritual transformation. Like a potter creating a masterwork, we can also change our bodies and minds with the help of a few simple tools.

With all the talk of altering our DNA, sometimes it is good to understand exactly how this process might work, from both a physical and a non-physical perspective.

The ability to influence our DNA is now undeniable, both cellular biologists, and geneticists alike are beginning to understand epi-genetic interplay, a Greek term meaning beyond genetics.

Bruce Lipton, and others have made it clear that we can alter heritable traits in our gene expression that do not involve the underlying DNA sequence. We change the phenotype without changing the genotype. But this single change causes a host of natural and phenomenal changes in the human body and mind.

At least three systems are involved in altering our DNA from a purely physical standpoint: DNA methylation, histone modification and non-coding RNA (ncRNA)-associated gene silencing, but these are not the only methods of gene alteration.

However, the founder of the Heart Math Institute, Doc Childre offers his own theory of how DNA is altered. It encapsulates the same understanding of DNA programming that Johanna Bassols received in a spiritual transmissionthat the heart must become involved.

Childre postulated that an energetic connection or coupling of information occurs between the DNA in cells and higher dimensional structures the higher self or spirit.

Brazil economic activity surges, but The BRICS Post

Brazilian flagship social welfare programs like Brasil Sem Misria and Bolsa Famlia, have brought millions out of poverty, but reforming such initiatives would cap government spending, analysts say [Xinhua]


The Brazilian Central Bank (Banco Central do Brasil) said this week that economic activity has surged in the country, reaching a pace that was both unexpected and the fastest in four years.

The Banks economic activity index jumped 1.41 per cent on a seasonally adjusted basis, its data showed. This is welcome news to markets which on Monday received news that the government was abandoning efforts to pass a major reform of the social security system which creditors have cited as necessary to fiscal reform.

Coupled with a surge in consumer spending on the back of lowered interests rates, an inflation rate that has been brought under control within Central Bank limits, and the 1.04 increase in economic activity between 2016 and 2017, Brazil appears to have well emerged out of its three-year recession.

The International Monetary Fund in January said that the economic recovery is gaining strength, spurred by private consumption and investment.

It listed as a significant positive marker the fall of inflation from two digits to 3 per cent after heavy intervention from the Central Bank.

However, its latest forecast for growth in Brazil is an upward revised 1.9 per cent (from 1.5) in 2018 and 2.1 per cent in 2019.

This is in line with Brazilian economic predictions which state that growth over the next two years will be at the fastest pace since 2013.

Brazilian President Michel Temer has taken credit for much of the economic revival, citing his reform measures since he took office two years ago.

However, his popularity among the population is extremely low and he is unlikely to remain as president after the October 2018 elections.

But his decision to withdraw efforts to have Congress vote on a bill to revamp the pension system has left some analysts worried that government spending will still be too large to put a dent in the budget deficit, particularly since tax revenues do not fill enough of the coffers.

According to the Central Bank, the public debt in Brazil is around $1.5 trillion accounting for 75 per cent of GDP.

These, and other issues related to the corruption-plagued government, will be critical d...

Legal Money Illusion Marginal REVOLUTION

The state of Virginia is raising the financial threshold for defining a theft as a felony for the first time in almost four decades. Virginias experience highlights a peculiarity of American criminal law that results in petty criminals in many states being charged and punished as if they were big-time criminals.

For property crimes such as theft or vandalism, states set financial thresholds that are intended to differentiate low-level crimes chargeable as misdemeanors from more serious offenses chargeable as felonies. In Virginia, the legislature in 1980 defined theft as a felony if the property stolen was worth more than $200. Because of inflation, more and more petty thefts that were originally defined as misdemeanors became felonies with each subsequent year. In 2017, someone who shoplifted a $240 pair of eyeglasses that would have cost only $80 in 1980 would be charged as a felon even though that was not the laws original intent. A felony charge can result in a petty criminal receiving a prison term, being barred from many occupations and in some states losing the right to vote.

Virginia is raising its felony standard to $500.

That is from Keith Humphreys at WaPo, note that Alaska uses indexing.

The Mysterious Lost Underground Civilization of the Grand Canyon The Event Chronicle

By Brent Swancer

Lying within the U.S. state of Arizona is one of the most majestic natural wonders of our planet, the Grand Canyon. Carved over hundreds of millions of years by the Colorado River and measuring 277 miles (446 km) long, up to 18 miles (29 km) wide, the Grand Canyon is a major natural phenomenon, but it is also a place of deep historical mysteries and oddities as well. One of the most unusual of these is the claim that somewhere under the earth here once ruled an advanced civilization with unknown origins and who have become lost to history, which supposedly inhabited a complex cave and cavern system that they left behind to sow bafflement and speculation with their passing. It is a very curious, far-out case that, if real, could shake our historical perceptions to the core.

The whole bizarre tale began with a curious article that appeared right on the front page of the April 5, 1909 edition of the Arizona Gazette, which gave a spectacular account from two alleged Smithsonian-funded archaeologists, a Prof. S. A. Jordan and G.E. Kinkaid, who claimed to have found deep within the bowels of the earth in the Marble Canyon region of the Grand Canyon a vast cavern system with evidence of some ancient lost civilization.

The Grand Canyon

The two men were reportedly funded by Smithsonians Department of Anthropology, and claimed that they had found the entrance to the mysterious cavern system lying around 1,500 feet down the wall of a sheer cliff in a remote, undisclosed area. The area was described as being nearly inaccessible and surrounded by desolate, forbidding wilderness, and the more vocal Kincaid would say in his account of the discovery of the entrance and further study of it thus:

First, I would impress that the cavern is nearly inaccessible. The entrance is 1,486 feet dow...

Seeking Life but Finding Death: Deadly Chinese Elixirs of Immortality The Event Chronicle

By Wu Mingren

The elixir of immortality (known also as the elixir of life) is a legendary substance found in many ancient cultures. This elixir is expected to grant eternal life to the person who consumes it. The history of China is filled with emperors and other important men who sought to live forever, but instead died an untimely death for their ambitions.

These elites would normally patronize Taoist alchemists, who would provide them with some sort of substance that would supposedly give them immortality. The ingestion of such elixirs, however, certainly did not allow them to live forever. In many cases the elixirs, which contain extremely poisonous elements, (ironically) were responsible for the deaths of those who consumed them.

Woodcut illustration of Putting the miraculous elixir on the tripod from Xingming guizhi (Pointers on Spiritual Nature and Bodily Life) by Yi Zhenren, a Daoist text on internal alchemy published in 1615. (Wellcome Images/ CC BY 4.0 )

Change and the Elixir of Immortality

The elixir of immortality is a concept that can be found in Taoist mythology. One of the best-known stories about this elixir is that of Change, a Chinese lunar deity. According to Chinese folklore, Change was the wife of Hou Yi, the legendary archer who shot down nine of the 10 suns that were burning the earth. As a reward, Hou Yi was granted the elixir of immortality.

Although there are variations as to what happened next, the story ends with Change drinking the elixir herself, and, as a result, floating to the moon. One of the companions of Change in her new residence is the Moon Rabbit (known also as the Jade Rabbit), which some say makes the elixir of immortality.

Puma Punku: Evidence Of Laser-Like Tools Used By Ancient Civilizations? The Event Chronicle

By Ancient Code

Located 45 miles west of La Paz high in the Andes mountains, lie the mystifying ancient ruins of Puma Punku.

The megalithic stones found there are considered among the largest on the planet. Some boulders measure up to 26 feet long and weighing more than 100 tons each.

Puma Punku is a massive temple complex part of the Tiwanaku Site near Tiwanaku, Bolivia.

Tiwanaku is vital in Incan legends since it is believed to be the site where the world was created by the Gods.

Puma Punku, in turn, means The Door of the Puma.

As noted by the Andean specialist, Binghamton University Anthropology professor W. H. Isbell,  a radiocarbon date was obtained from organic material from lowermost and oldest layer of mound-fill forming the Puma Punku. This segment was deposited during the first of three construction epochs and dates the initial construction of the Puma Punku at 1510 25 B.P.

Puma Punku is so unusual in the way that it was constructed, shaped and positioned, that many scholars consider it is the most intriguing ancient site on the planet.

Mainstream experts believe the blocks found at Puma Punku were formed by hand with primitive stone tools.

However, some researchers point to the intricate stonework as evidence of the use of advanced precision technology.

How could primitive people, living thousands of years ago, have produced such flawless stonework, without access to any form of technology? Did they use sticks and stones?

Or, is it possible that the ancient constructors of Puma Punku manufactured the megalithic stones with advanced technology?

Perhaps with the use of precision tools that could have facilitated them to achieve these marvels of engineering and construction, displaying clean cuts, and precise angles.

If we look at the stones at Puma Punku carefully, you can see amazing intricate s...

You Need To Hear These FAA Tapes From That Oregon UFO Incident That Sent F-15s Scrambling

New evidence offers great detail of the bizarre event and provides unprecedented insight into how such a unique incident is dealt with in real time.

By Tyler Rogoway

Last November, The War Zone posted an exclusive story detailing a bizarre incident involving an unidentified aircraft that transited the skies of the Pacific Northwest in the early evening of October 25th, 2017. What started as a radar target moving at very high speed over Northern California turned into a series of eyewitness accounts made by nearby airline pilots traveling northward over Oregon. Even F-15 fighters were launched to intercept the mysterious intruder that quickly became invisible to radar.

Now, through the Freedom of Information Act, we present what could be one of the most insightful instances of official documentation surrounding such an encounter that had already been confirmed to have occurred by both the FAA and the USAF. These materials include fascinating audio recordings of radio transmissions and phone calls made as the incident was unfolding, as well as pilot interviews, and conversations between FAA officials made in the aftermath of the highly peculiar incident.

For proper context, make sure to first read our original post linked here detailing the event, how our report came to be in the first place, as well as the rare confirmations as to its authenticity from both the FAA and the USAF. Below is also a short explainer video that will give you a basic overview of the incident.

Benjamin Fulford: Florida school shooting The Event Chronicle

By Benjamin Fulford

Hi Ben,

I think if you were to look into it, youll find as I have that the whole shooting thing in Florida was a hoax, and was another police drill just like Sandy Hook.

If you go through the hundreds of photos taken, not one shows any bodies, blood, bullets, bullet holes, empty cases, nothing, nada.  Also, CNN interviewed a kid who said he was in the hall with a couple of other kids when they heard the shooting, but they were locked out of the classroom and wondering which way to go.  The kid was not alarmed because they were all told that there was going to be a police drill and that the cops would be firing blanks . So its just as Sandy Hook, with a lot of actors.  And now the building is off-limits and to be torn down to cover up any evidencestandard agency protocol, leave nothing behind or in this case, lack of.

The school was also in a wealthy area, and you can believe most all those kids have iPods and such, but no photos of blood and gore?  How is that possible?

It is interesting what you stated about the school name being the same as the hospital Kennedy died in.

Love reading your stuff although I dont always believe it.  However, I have found over the years some of the way-out stuff is later revealed to be true.

I really miss being in Japan, but what I miss is the way it was in the early 60s.

Good work, Ben, and stay safe,
CS

Manhattan land prices Marginal REVOLUTION

Using vacant land sales, we construct a land values index for Manhattan from 1950 to 2014. We find three major cycles (19501977, 1977 to 1993, and 1993 to 2009) with land values reaching their nadir in 1977, just after the citys fiscal crisis. Overall, we find the average annual real growth rate to be 5.5%. Since 1993, land prices have risen quite dramatically, and much faster than population or employment growth, at an average annual rate of 15.8%, suggesting that barriers to entry in real estate development are causing prices to rise faster than other measures of local well-being. Further, we estimate the entire amount of developable land on Manhattan in 2014 was worth approximately $1.74 trillion. This would suggest an average annual return of about 6.4% since the island was first inhabited by Dutch settlers in 1626.

Diseases With Unknown Etiology Trace Back To Mass Vaccination Against Influenza in 1976 The Event Chronicle

By James Lyons-Weiler via The World Mercury Project

Crohns. Lupus. Autism. ADHD. Food allergies. Celiac disease. Sjgrens syndrome. Polymyalgia rheumatica. Multiple sclerosis. Anklyosing spondylitis. Type 1 diabetes. Vasculitis. Peripheral neuropathy. The list goes on, and on, and on. We are being increasingly diagnosed with these conditions and diseases of unknown origin, and science has very little to say why would autoimmune diseases and mysterious diseases of inflammation be so prevalent? When did this increase start?

As an observer and participant in modern biomedical research, and a lover of deep history, I tend to focus not on the immediate or last few years, but look for trends of accumulating risk over longer periods of time. Seeking an answer to the question of when, I used Pubmed to estimate, per yer, the number of studies and papers discussing diseases and conditions of unknown origin. I search for the term unknown causes, and also for the term journal to get some idea of the percentage of studies, papers and editorials discussing disease of unknown causes. I had no idea what to expect.

Looking at a trend of topics per year, one has to correct for some estimate of the total number of articles published, because a mere count would, in part, reflect the overall trend in the explosion of total articles published. I chose as my control term the word journal, because many titles of publications include that term (e.g., Journal of Nephrology). Here is the control result, which is not surprising, and completely expected:

Again, this merely reflects the trend in the increase in publications in Pubmed, and so using it would provide a relative control for that trend.

Next I searched for Unknown Causes, and calculated the number of articles citing unknown causes per 10,000 articles (again, relative denominator term).

What I found is shocking. Here is a graph of the number of articles per...

Net neutrality supporters plan Internet-wide day of action on Feb 27 as FCC repeal is expected to enter Federal Register this week Fight for the Future

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, February 20, 2018
Contact: Evan Greer, 978-852-6457, press@fightforthefuture.org

Publication of the rules will start clock on window of 60 legislative days to pass CRA resolution to block the repeal. Operation: #OneMoreVote day of action will flood Senate with calls and emails to secure the final vote.

Reuters is reporting that the FCCs resoundingly unpopular net neutrality repeal will be published in the Federal Register this Thursday, February 22nd, which will officially begin a countdown of 60 legislative days to pass a resolution to reverse the order. Net neutrality supporters and major web platforms like Tumblr, Etsy, Medium, and GitHub have already planned Operation: #OneMoreVote, a major Internet-wide day of action, for next Tuesday, February 27, to secure the final vote needed to pass the Congressional Review Act (CRA) in the Senate.

The day of action is being organized by Fight for the Future, Demand Progress, and Free Press Action Fund, the groups behind BattleForTheNet.com and many of the largest online protests in history. Internet users, small businesses, online communities, public interest groups and popular websites will harness their reach to flood lawmakers with calls, emails and tweets, and constituent meetings in search of the final vote needed to pass a Congressional Review Act (CRA) resolution that would block the FCCs unpopular repeal of net neutrality protections.

Now its officially go time, and the Internet is gearing up for a hell of a fight, said Evan Greer, campaign director of Fight for the Future. The CRA is the clearest path to restore net neutrality protections that ne...

Threat to crops and carcinogenic: Farmers welcome move to restrict glyphosate use The Event Chronicle

The AP governments order restricting the use of herbicides will also check the illegal use of BT cotton.

By TNM

In a significant move to prevent the indiscriminate use of herbicides, the Andhra Pradesh Government has restricted the use of herbicides, especially glyphosate, in agriculture.

The order was passed after the Special Commissioner of Agriculture of the state, in a letter to the government, pointed out that the injudicious use of herbicides particularly non-selective herbicides like glyphosate in agricultural and horticultural ecosystems leads to serious implications in many cultivated crops in Andhra Pradesh.

According to the order, the herbicides cannot be used in any of the crops in the Kharif season, i.e. June to November. The approval of the Central Insecticides Board & Registration Committee is mandatory to recommend/procure/store/use any agro chemical, as per the Insecticide Act, 1968.

The herbicides specified in the order can be used in non-cropped areas, or during the months of December to May, but only with specific recommendations by authorised personnel.

Additionally, all retailers in Andhra Pradesh have been directed to sell only the recommended quantity of herbicide to be used during non-crop growth season in non-cropped areas.

Farmers have also been discouraged from cultivation of illegal Herbicide Tolerant (HT) crop varieties to prevent the use of non-selective herbicides.

Speaking to TNM, G Vinaichand, Additional Director of Agriculture, and Director, Agriculture Technology Management Agency (ATMA, Andhra Pradesh), said that the decision was taken after examining random samples from some seed processing units.

Check on illegal use of BT cotton

Environment and agriculture activists have lauded the move saying it will not only help control the excessive use of herbicides but also check illegal cultivation of BT cotton.

It is a welcome move. It addresses the ill-effects of glyphosate as well the fact that it is being illegally used on illegally cultivated HT cotton, said Kavitha Kuruganti, national co-convenor of the Alliance for Sustainable & Holistic Agriculture (ASHA).

Glyphosate and other weedicides are very problematic in two ways, explained Kiran Kumar Vissa of the Rythu Swarajya Vedika, an organisation of non-profits focused on agriculture.

NSA Exploit Now Powering Cryptocurrency Mining Malware The Event Chronicle

By Tech Dirt

You may have been asked if youd like to try your hand at mining cryptocurrency. You may have demurred, citing the shortage in graphics cards or perhaps wary you were being coaxed into an elaborate Ponzi scheme. So much for opting out. Thanks to the NSA, you may be involved in mining cryptocurrency, but youre likely not seeing any of the benefits.

A computer security exploit developed by the US National Security Agency and leaked by hackers last year is now being used to mine cryptocurrency, and according to cybersecurity experts the number of infections is rising.

The good news is you wont have to cough up ransom to retake control of your computer. The bad news is this doesnt guarantee youll have a functioning computer.

This new attackcalled WannaMinemay seem like less of a threat than WannaCry because it doesnt lock users out of their computer. But CrowdStrike noted in a blog post laying out its findings on WannaMine that the company has observed the malware rendering some companies unable to operate for days and weeks at a time. WannaMine infections are also hard to detect because it doesnt download any applications to an infected device.

This is the path the NSAs malware has taken: from worldwide ransomware to drive-by installations of mining software. The route to infection is still the normal route: malicious links. Once inside, the malware co-opts your processor for cryptocurrency mining. If your computer happens to be part of a network, the infection will spread to connected computers, turning entire businesses into someone elses side hustle.

The fun part is even patched systems can be infected. The NSAs EternalBlue exploit may no longer work, but an attached tool called...

Florida high school student journalist (& son of FBI agent) caught on video rehearsing scripted lines, coached by camera man The Event Chronicle

By Mike Adams

Is anyone surprised anymore at the depths of deception invoked by the fake news media? All weekend long, the media paraded high school kids in front of news cameras, exploiting them as props for the emotional exploitation of the public. Now it turns out these kids were coached to repeat scripted lines, just like actors reading lines for a movie production. Its all scripted, in other words, to push a gun control narrative rooted in emotional reaction rather than constructive solutions.

It also turns out that one of these kids David Hogg is the son of an FBI agent. In other words, his father was part of the same deep state swamp that has been committing treason to try to destroy Trump. This was almost never mentioned in any of the TV news interviews where he was vehemently defending the FBI and blaming President Trump for the shooting.

This is all explained in more detail by Lucian Wintrich, via The Gateway Pundit:

EXPOSED: School Shooting Survivor Turned Activist David Hoggs Father in FBI, Appears To Have Been Coached On Anti-Trump Lines [VIDEO]

In less than a week since they survived a mass murdering gunman attack on their school, two student who quickly became media stars of the Parkland, Florida school shootings are now media obsessed to the point they say they are snubbing an invitation to meet with President Donald Trump this Wednesday in favor of appearing on a televised town hall with CNNs Jake Tapper. []

One student, in particular, David Hogg seems articulate and highly skilled at setting a new anti-Conservative/anti-Trump narrative behind the recent school shooting. Few have seen this type of rapid media play before and when they have it has come from well-trained political operatives and MSM commentators.

Immediately, these students-turned-activists threw up some red flags.

In what seemed initially as an incredibly odd move for a high school student, Hoggs vehemently defended the FBI and placed the blame squarely on the Presidents shoulders. before admitting that his father was in the FBI.

I HEAR VOICES: A Worrying Trend Of Mass Shooting Suspects Throughout History Before Committing Horrific Murders The Event Chronicle

By an0nkn0wledge

Direct energy weapons are electromagnetic signals used for lethal or nonlethal purpose. One such example of use is creating pain in a target but the other nefarious usage is beaming voices into a targets head to either coerce someone into doing a violent act or to drive them insane.

Yes, this type of technology has existed and has been being worked on since as early as the 1950s-60s during MKUltra. While the technology today is probably so far advanced that numerous health problems such as brain damage, and other organ damage can be caused in an individual simply by tapping into the frequency of that organ and beaming a radio frequency to disrupt its function.

For more on that, check out this unclassified document from the U.S. Army Intelligence and Security Command received via a Freedom of  Information Act (FOIA) request back in 2006 entitled, Bioeffects of Selected Nonlethal Weapons.

The document is dated in 1998, over 15 years ago. One of the main topics regards the effects of radio frequency directed energy. The document discusses the incapacitating effect of microwave hearing:

There is no sound propagated through the air like normal  sound. This technology in its crudest form could be used to distract  individuals; if refined, it could also be used to communicate with  hostages or hostage takers directly by Morse code or other message  systems, possibly even by voice communication.

From that document the technology is able to be tuned into a single person like a radio station.

The phenomenon is tunable in that the characteristic sounds and  intensities of those sounds depend on the characteristics of the RF  energy as delivered. Because the frequency of the sound heard is  dependent on the pulse characteristics of the RF energy, it  seems possible that this technology could be developed to the point  where words could be transmitted to be heard like the spoken word,  except that it could only be heard within a persons head. In one experiment, communication of the words from one to ten using speech modulated microwave energy was successfully demonstrated. Microphones next to the person experiencing the voice could not pick up the sound. Additional development of this would open up a wide range of possibili...

Pro-Syrian Government forces are set to enter the Kurdish-held area of Afrin to boost defences against a military offensive against Kurdish fighters by the Turkish army, Syrian state television has said.

SANA reported pro-Syrian government forces will begin entering the Afrin enclave in the countrys north within hours, after reaching an agreement with the Kurdish militia in control of the region.

The popular forces joining the resistance against Turkish occupation in Afrin comes in the framework of supporting residents as well as defending Syria and its sovereignty, SANA said.

Saudi Arabia warns against initial coin offerings in cryptocurrency market Follow The Money

Riyadh has cautioned the public against investing in initial coin offerings (ICOs) due to the high risk, potential losses of capital and alleged fraud in the cryptocurrency market.

According to the Capital Market Authority, crypto investing and speculative trading are potentially risky due to the high volatility of virtual currencies, the insular nature of their valuation and the lack of proper regulation in the Kingdom.

The caution comes as the number of websites and advertisements for investment in digital currencies, as well as marketing campaigns on social media targeting Saudi citizens, has significantly increased in recent times.

As Public Demands Answers, Autopsy Reveals Las Vegas Shooter Died 1 Day AFTER Suicide The Event Chronicle

Newly released autopsy reports reveal that Las Vegas shooting suspect Stephen Paddock died more than 12 hours after police claim he committed suicide.

By Rachel Blevins

Las Vegas As Americans search for answers to the questions surrounding reports of a mass shooting at a high school in Florida, the alarming autopsy results from a mass shooting in Las Vegas, which show that the suspected gunman died more than 12 hours after he reportedly committed suicide, are being ignored.

While the official timeline of the Las Vegas shooting has changed multiple times, one thing has remained the samethe claim that after opening fire out of the window of his room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel, Stephen Paddock shot and killed himself at some point between 10:15 p.m. and 11:20 p.m. on Oct. 1, 2017.

However, the autopsy report released by the Clark County Coroner claimed that Paddock actually died at 12 p.m. on Oct. 2, 2017.

Autopsy

The autopsy was conducted on Oct. 6, 2017, by a team of detectives who claimed Paddock weighed 224 lbs. and was 6 feet tall. According to the report, he was wearing a brown long-sleeve shirt and black pants, which match the outfit worn in photos released from the hotel room that showed what was purported to be Paddocks dead body after the sho...

Only 321 people have participated in the first contract, which ends in April, and even fewer in the second, which ends at the end of April 2019.  At that rate, the average amount of winnings per participant will exceed $110.

82.4 Million Tokens: Venezuela Launches 'Petro' Cryptocurrency Pre-Sale

By Francisco Memoria

The Venezuelan government has officially launched the pre-sale of its Petro (PTR) cryptocurrency. The Petro, as previously covered, is an Ethereum-based ERC-20 token thats supposedly pegged to the countrys notable oil reserves. The cryptocurrencys token, expected to be worth about $60, will be divisible into 100 million parts, with the smallest one being the mene.

According to Latin American news source Telesur, a total of 82.4 million Petros will initially be available, out of the 100 million President Nicols Maduro ordered. The token, announced late last year as a way to circumvent US sanctions, is set to be accepted as a payment method by the Venezuelan government and can be purchased with hard currencies and other cryptocurrencies.

In an announcement, Maduro was quoted as saying:

Petro is born and we are going to have a total success for the welfare of Venezuela. The largest and most important companies and blockchain in the world are with Venezuela, we are going to sign agreements.

While hard currencies like the US dollar will be accepted, Venezuelas fiat currency, the bolivar, wont. Carlos Vargas, the governments cryptocurrency superintendent, bullishly appointed by Nicols Maduro to govern it and its transactions, previously stated that the governments responsibility it to put (the petro) in the best hands and then a secondary market will appear.

Heroin Addiction in America Spearheaded by the US-led War on Afghanistan The Event Chronicle

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

In his 2018 State of the Union Address, president Trump expresses concern regarding both the opioid crisis as well as the dramatic increase in heroin addiction in America, without analyzing the underlying causes.

Trump State of Union Address: 

In 2016, we lost 64,000 Americans to drug overdoses:  174 deaths per day.  Seven per hour.  We must get much tougher on drug dealers and pushers if we are going to succeed in stopping this scourge.

My Administration is committed to fighting the drug epidemic and helping get treatment for those in need.  The struggle will be long and difficult but, as Americans always do, we will prevail. (Trump State of the Union, emphasis added)

Trump brings to the forefront the story of the Holets family of New Mexico:

Ryan Holets is 27 years old, and an officer with the Albuquerque Police Department.  He is here tonight with his wife Rebecca.  Last year, Ryan was on duty when he saw a pregnant, homeless woman preparing to inject heroin.  When Ryan told her she was going to harm her unborn child, she began to weep.  She told him she did not know where to turn, but badly wanted a safe home for her baby.

In that moment, Ryan said he felt God speak to him:  You will do it because you can.  He took out a picture of his wife and their four kids.  Then, he went home to tell his wife Rebecca.  In an instant, she agreed to adopt.  The Holets named their new daughter Hope.

Ryan and Rebecca:  You embody the goodness of our Nation.  Thank you, and congratulations. (Trump State of the Union, emphasis added)

Beautiful narrative. The Nation weeps, Ryan was interviewed on CNN. While he and his family take a courageous stance against heroin addiction, Trump sheds crocodile tears.

100s of USA swimmers were sexually abused for decades and the people in charge knew and ignored it, investigation finds The Event Chronicle

By Scott M. Reid

For decades the sexual abuse of young athletes by their coaches lingered just beneath the surface in American swimmings otherwise golden waters.

In 2005, USA Swimming president Ron Van Pool decided it was time to bring the issue to the surface.

Giving his annual State of Swimming address, Van Pool pushed for a more aggressive approach within the sport to taking on sexual abuse.

USA Swimming is frightfully behind the curve in this process and there are those who would have us continue to lag, Van Pool said.

The speech, however, didnt make much of an impression with Chuck Wielgus, then in his eighth year as USA Swimmings executive director.

There was nothing that struck me, Wielgus said later in deposition.

Van Pools warning certainly failed to spark a sense of urgency with Wielgus, the man in charge of the day-to-day operations of swimmings national governing body at its Colorado Springs headquarters, or those around him at USA Swimming.

Five years later, Wielgus was asked in a deposition if, in the wake of Van Pools speech, if USA Swimming had taken any steps to bring the organization up to speed on the sexual abuse issue?

No, said Wielgus, who died last April after a lengthy battle with colon cancer.

The moment and its sense of complacency is indicative of the failure of USA Swimming to effectively address sexual abuse revealed in thousands of pages of documents obtained by the Southern California News Group.

Arkansas & the Clinton Connection Investigation The Event Chronicle

By Micah Morrison
Chief Investigative Reporter, Judicial Watch

Rumors have been floating up from Little Rock for months now of a new investigation into the Clinton Foundation. John Solomon advanced the story recently in a January report for The Hill. FBI agents in the Arkansas capital, he wrote, have taken the lead in a new Justice Department inquiry into whether the Clinton Foundation engaged in any pay-to-play politics or other illegal activities while Hillary Clinton served as secretary of state. Solomon reports that the probe may also examine whether any tax-exempt assets were converted for personal or political use and whether the foundation complied with applicable tax laws. Main Justice also is re-examining whether there are any unresolved issues from the closed case into Clintons transmission of classified information through her personal email server, Solomon notes.

Solomon is not alone. The Wall Street Journal is tracking the story. And earlier this month, investigative journalist Peter Schweizer cryptically told SiriusXM radio that federal authorities should convene a grand jury in Little Rock and let the American people look at the evidence about the Clinton Foundation.

Judicial Watch continues to turn up new evidence of Clinton pay-to-play and mishandling of classified information. In recent months, through FOIA litigation, Judicial Watch has forced the release of more than 2,600 emails and documents from Mrs. Clinton and her associates, with more to come. The emails include evidence of Clinton Foundation donors such XL Keystone lobbyist Gordon Griffin, futures brokerage firm CME Group chairman Terrence Duffy, and an associate of Shangri La Entertainment mogul Steve Bing seeking special favors from the State Department.

Benjamin Fulford: Bad Guys into Good Guys? The Event Chronicle

Dear Ben:

I heard in your talk with Robert David Steele that you think we should pay the bad guys off and change things to turn the bad guys (NWO mafia) into good guys.

I guess you dont realize these bad guys are not Humanthey have Human bodies and a Reptilian soul.  Im sure of this although I cant prove it, but my work is at http://www.icheckyoursoul.com.

I have a God-given ability to read souls by the use of a pendulum, and almost everyone that has used my services agrees with my findings.

These Bad Guys are polarized evil and their souls come from the Draconian Reptilians, so they almost cant change!  If we were to pay them off and take them out of power, so to speak, whats to stop them from continuing funding their evil corporations and keep up chemtrails, GMOs, vaccines, Agenda 21 or Agenda 2030, wars, and many other evil activities.

These Reptilian-soul people will not stop, and they intend to have just them in the ruling class and everyone else be a worker/slave.  We must take these evil people out of our society while we still can.  What say you?

My view is that the true criminals will face justice, but the ones who went along because it was a choice of either go along or die should be allowed truth and reconciliation.

Those problems are all rising because, though we might not know, we are on the revolutionary road to a world without work. Every dollar, yen, or renminbi of value created in the economies of today is done so with less and less work. So jobs are disappearingbut the fruits of a workless economy are not being allocated well: justly, efficiently, effectively, optimally. In ways that allow societies to prosperinstead of collapse into something like lawless neofeudal oligarchies.

The scarcest commodity in modern economies is becoming work itself. That is why we are seeing yesterdays careers going up in smoke. Gigs replacing jobs. Young people looking desperately for a way in, but finding none. The whole labour market breaking all of yesterdays ruleslow unemployment, but also little inflation, and no real gains in household incomes, which continue to shrink. Those cannot all be true unless there is something changing, and changing profoundly, at the heart of the economy.

That something is technology and automation. Algorithms are replacing whole categories of managers at Uber and Amazon. They are replacing whole industriesadvertising and mediaat Google and Facebook. They are replacing whole categories of workers, in accounting, law, and medicine. Now. Let us leave aside the question of whether they are doing so wellwe will come back to that in the end.

So here we are, economists, managers, intellectuals, politicans, peopleseeking work, jobs, and careers, desperately in an economy that has less and less of it to offer. We are trying to solve a problem that was itself the solution to yesterdays problems. We wanted lives of ease and comfort, where work itself became obsolete. Now we stand on the cusp of that science-fiction world that we wanted. But the transition is the hard part.

Let me give you a metaphor. An industrial economy was like a facto...

Watch: CNN Roots Through Russian Garbage, Gets Tossed Out Of Russian Troll Farm The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

Following Special Counsel Robert Muellers indictment of 13 Russian nationals on Friday for (unsuccessfully) attempting to influence the 2016 presidential election, CNN sent one of its most intrepid reporters to the St. Petersburg troll farm uncovered by Muellers ever-widening and totally legitimate investigation.

Chief International Correspondent Matthew Chance (had his cameraman) literally dig through the garbage outside of an office building which is home to the alleged Russian troll farm for clues.

This is the office in which that atmosphere of chaos was stoked from the Russian side, Chance told guest host Jim Sciutto. Thats why 13 Russian individuals, including the financial benefactor, the person who bankrolls that organization, have now been indicted in the United States.

You looked through the trash there? Sciutto asked. What did you find?

Yes, we did, Chance answered, sheepishly. We came here expecting this office to be empty, but, in fact, all day here, weve been here throughout the course of the day, people have been going in and out.

We went to the trash can to see what we could find with old people dumping rubbish there. New computers are being delivered here and they are throwing it away with the rubbish.

Later, Chance spoke with an actual Russian troll  who appears to be about 250 lbs underweight for his alleged profession, who blew smoke in his face. When the CNN crew attempted to then enter the troll farm they were promptly told to leave.

CNN goes to Russia so they can dig in the trash to try to find proof of Russian collusion.

They cant find any so they ask a Russian who works there if hes a troll, he blows smoke in their face and walks away.

They follow him into the building and get thrown out. pic.twitter.com/kkV71rcBTe

ABC News Australia Raided by ASIO Officers; Secure Cabinets Seized The Event Chronicle

By Shem El-Jamal

On January 18, 2018, many Americans were pleasantly surprised to hear the news of the raids on the publisher, Newsweek, that took place just one day prior. These actions taken by New York law enforcement appeared to be largely justified, and in the eyes of many Americans, these raids were long overdue.

As the situation appears, the issues which promoted the swift confiscation of the servers at Newsweek stretch far beyond just one mere company in the U.S. We may see that due to the similar actions of law enforcement in Canberra and Brisbane, Australia, that Newsweek was not the only corporate source that was suspected of illegal activity.

For the longest time, thousands of Americans have grown increasingly impatient with a corporate media that has been long-divorced from accurate reporting and ethical integrity. Not only have corporate sources such as Newsweek been shown to be significantly dishonest in their reporting, but they have been long-suspected to be linked to criminal interests as well.

These and many other reasons may explain why many citizens were somewhat relieved to see these recent actions against provably compromised news sources.

For decades, the corporate media has gradually devolved into a politically bias, corporately compromised, puppet show for the ruling elite. According to multiple sources, there are numerous interests behind this media monopoly who intend to manipulate the public in any direction which they deem advantageous to elitist ideals.

Whether the goal involves starting useless wars in foreign countries, placing Cabal sponsored puppets in positions of power, censoring important information from being revealed, or disarming the general public for the sake of maintain social control, the general intent is the same.

It is a well-known fact that the CIA and other government agencies have significant control over corporate media. Companies such as CNN, ABC, CBS, and even NPR have been shown to be little more than extensions of the CIA and/or other manipulative government agencies. Though some may believe that past government programs such as Operation Mockingbird were discontinued, these programs a...

Watch A Flustered John Podesta Respond To Why The Russians Operatives Were Smarter Than Hillary The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

Former Clinton campaign manager and ardent foodie, John Podesta, was caught flat-footed during a heated exchange on CBSs Face the Nation Sunday after being asked about the campaigns failure to campaign in so-called purple states in 2016.

In a discussion of 13 Russian nationals indicted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, host Nancy Cordes noted that Russian operatives who meddled in the election somehow realized the importance of focusing on those highly contested swing states.

How is it that these Russian operatives knew to focus on purple states like Michigan and Wisconsin and your campaign didnt? Nancy Cordes, the host of Face the Nation, asked Podesta.

A defensive Podesta responded Of course we spent a lot of time and energy and effort in all those states.

Cordes pushed back, something Podesta wasnt prepared for. Hillary Clinton did not spend much time in said purple states.  A flustered Podesta then stammered his way through a series of talking points, noting We had Tim Kaine was there, Barack Obama and she spent enormous time in Pennsylvania and Michigan.

Lynn de Rothschild had some thoughts on the matter:

Podesta was caught off guard by the same MSM which was literally eating out of his home during propaganda huddles off-the-record dinners (no clue what was served over what) with one of the goals of Framing the HRC message and framing the race.

#Pedogate Update Woman Witnesses Child Sacrifice At Vatican The Event Chronicle

A woman says she witnessed a child sacrifice in the catacombs of the Vatican. An international court examines documents backing her claim that it was and still is a regular occurrence. Its all part of a Satanic cult where children are drugged, stripped naked, raped, hunted down and killed by European royals and church officials including the Pope. David Zublick unseals the horrible truth about the Ninth Circle in this special report!

The 9th Circle: Child Sex/Sacrifice Cult Initiation

The Ninth Circle Satanic Cult, a child sacrifice group composed of global elites, appears to be routinely raping, torturing and murdering children it was announced yesterday by the ITCCS. Recent court filings against the international child kidnapping ring go to court April 7.

Named as chief defendants for the Brussels Common Law Court trial were Pope Francis, Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Pachon and Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby. Among possible Ninth Circle Satanic Cult members named by witnesses who would testify at the trial were former popes Joseph Ratzinger and John Paul II, UK High Court Justice Judge Fulford and members of the British Royal Family.

Queen Elizabeth had direct involvement in the kidnapping and death of aboriginal children and Royal Family members appeared to regularly participate in Ninth Circle Satanic Cult rituals at the Mohawk Indian School in Brantford Ontario Canada yesterdays announcement proclaimed.

According to two affidavits filed in court, not only did different witnesses see Ninth Circle Satanic Cult members commit murder, but claimed the brutal killings of innocent children continued today, some in sub-basement vaults.

The international court was set to consider:

  • Testimonies of two former Mohawk School inmates who both say they were present at the Ninth Circle Satanic Cult murder of a 5-6 year-old girl at the Mohawk Indian School in Branton Ontario Canada.
  • A copy of the Magisterial Privilege that was filed within sealed archives of the Vatican library. The Ninth Circle Satanic Cult operated according to this canon law statute dated Dec. 25 1967. It was said to document that before each new pope assumed office it was mandatory that they participated in Ninth Circle Satanic Cult rites. The document referred to ceremonial murder of newborn children and consumption of their blood.

Also last week, former CIA officer and co-founder of the Marine Intelligence Activity (the folks who recently raided CIA Headquarters) Robert David Steele showed up in Japan last week to meet with WDS members.

Remember, the top generals in the Trump regime, including Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Joseph Dunford, were all Marine generals, so the timing of Steeles arrival in Japan can be no coincidence.

In Japan, Steele met with members of Asian secret societies, senior right-wing power brokers, members of the Japanese royal family, and others.

Groundswell of interest in Public Banks has advocates pondering how they could transform their cities Blog - Public Banking Institute

SF Supervisor Maria Cohen, photo courtesy Next City

 

An inspiring new article in Next City takes the pulse of key San Franciscans as they consider starting a Public Bank. The article mentions PBI and delves deeply into the benefits the city could gain. Ellen Brown and Walt McRee are among those quoted.

It includes a particularly good analysis on governance and how the city is already making the same sort of loans the Public Bank would make without running into political issues. A Public Bank would simply expand the citys ability to make the types of loans it is already making. Supervisor Maria Cohen wants to get the Public Bank incorporated by the end of this year. 

Author Oscar Perry Abello writes:

As [Supervisor Maria] Cohen and others see it, modeling a city-owned bank after the Bank of North Dakota would go beyond protecting public dollars from being used in ways that contradict public values and priorities it could also help utilize those dollars as a powerful tool to advance those values and priorities."

Supervisor Maria Cohen:

The key thing I took away from the [community responsive banking] report was this is doable. Theres a lot of moving parts in our financial banking and payroll system, but San Francisco has a lot of talent, and the legal framework already exists.

Its my goal to have a thoughtful directive from the task force by the summertime, so we can move forward in the fall to introduce legislation to get this incorporated by the end of this year.

Top South Korean Crypto Regulator Found Dead From Unknown Cause The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

The struggle between the South Korean Ministry of Finance and Ministry of Justice over the future of cryptocurrency regulation a debate that mostly played out during December and January terrified crypto traders who feared the South Korean government was on the verge of wittingly or unwittingly devastating the market.

Headlines about a pending ban in South Korea helped drive the bitcoin price more than 60% lower in January its largest monthly drop in years but now that the debate has been settled, the price has been steadily climbing again, breaking above $11,500 earlier today

But in a shocking development thats almost guaranteed to contribute to speculation about whether any foul play was involved, the Wall Street Journal reports  that one of the countrys top crypto regulators was found dead Tuesday.

While some speculated that the cause of death was a heart attack, the official statement so far is that the cause of death remainsunknown.

Semiofficial news agency Yonhap reported that Mr. Jung was presumed to have suffered a heart attack and police had opened an investigation into the cause of death.

In a recent LA Times article, David Dayen explains how creating a Public Bank for the cannabis industry in California would be a tremendous step forward, but also a tremendous missed opportunity:

A public bank could do so much more than hold deposits for a handful of entrepreneurs. At a time when California has so many pressing needs, from transportation to water delivery, a public bank could help stretch scarce dollars and rebuild the state.

A public bank could also be tasked with lending money to support critical public needs. Ethical developers have trouble financing affordable housing, and nonprofit entrepreneurs have trouble securing small business loans; a California public bank could operate as a lifeline.

Things are moving fast in California. A Los Angeles City Council committee approved a resolution February 16 to support the recently introduced state bill that would create a Public Bank that could take deposits from legal marijuana businesses.

California Senate Bill 930, introduced at the end of January, would establish a state-chartered bank that would allow a person licensed to engage in commercial cannabis activity to engage in banking activities in California.

The LA resolution to support SB 930 was proposed by Council President Herb Wesson and approved by the councils Rules, Elections and Intergovernmental Relations Committee.

Wesson proposed creating a Public Bank for the City of Los Angeles in July 2017.

OPERATION GLADIO C: Government-Sponsored Domestic Terrorism Targets American Public Schools The Event Chronicle

How the CIAs MKUltra Mind Control Program Creates Mass Shooters and Turns Lone Gunmen Into Patsies

The United States has been under the complete control of the Very Deep State (much deeper than Deep State) for decades. The Very Deep State (VDS) uses the alphabet soup agencies of the U.S. Intelligence Community to monitor and police every sphere of life in American society.  Just like the Soviet Union of the last century, there are no secrets.  Only now there really are NO secrets anywhere in the 50 states.  Not only is there is a vast network of undercover citizen spies who operate in every county, agents of the VDS are surreptitiously inserted into every organization of note nationwide.  The present National Security State, with its full-spectrum surveillance regime and spying apparatus, actually functions as a full-blown, communist police state (where the FBI=KGB, literally).  The Shadow Government (a clandestine, autocratic and all-powerful global entity), that oversees the U.S. Federal Government, uses Operation Gladio C (via NATO command and control) to manufacture consent via government-sponsored terrorism.  Mass shootings, in particular, are methodically used in this way to terrorize the body politic into supporting draconian measures that erode national sovereignty. Undermining the American Republic is the single most important objective of Operation Gladio C.  Other nations are experiencing their own versions of Operation Gladio C as seen throughout the European Union, the Middle East, South Asia, Central and South America, Mexico, etc.

FOX News Cuts Off Reporter When She Links Psychotropic Drugs to Florida Shooter The Event Chronicle

Illustrating his networks subservience to big pharma, FOX News Sean Hannity blatantly cut off a reporter when she mentioned the fact that most mass shootings are linked to psychotropic drugs.

By Matt Agorist

Stephen Paddock, Omar Mateen, Gavin Long, Eric Harris, Dylan Klebold, James Holmes, and now, Nikolas Cruz all have one thing in common other than the mass murders they carried out. They were all reportedly taking prescription drugs which alter their state of mind and carry a host of negative side effects ranging from aggression and suicide to homicidal ideation.

Suicide, birth defects, heart problems, hostility, violence, aggression, hallucinations, self-harm, delusional thinking, homicidal ideation, and death are just a few of the side effects caused by the medication taken by the monsters named above, some of which are known as SSRIs (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors), or antidepressants.

There have been 150 studies in 17 countries on antidepressant-induced side effects. There have been 134 drug regulatory agency warnings from 11 countries and the EU warning about the dangerous side effects of antidepressants.

Despite this deadly laundry list of potential reactions to these medications, their use has skyrocketed by 400% since 1988. Coincidentally, as antidepressant use went up, so did mass shootings.

The website SSRIstories.org has been documenting the link between selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and violence. On the website is a collection of over 6,000 stories that have appeared in local media (newspapers, TV, scientific journals) in which prescription drugs were mentioned and in which the drugs may be linked to a variety of adverse outcomes including most of the mass shootings which have taken place on US soil.

The good RV is the gold-backed new currency.

Jared Rand is new on the scene and has all the positive off-world helpers projections well organized, as well as the spiritual themes put out by the likes of Wilcock and Goode.

Establishing the Link between Nonprofit Governance and Democracy Grassroots Economic Organizing

Relatively little attention has been paid to democratic and critical approaches that look into the embedded power dynamics that influence who is allowed access to organizational decision making: whose voices get heard and whose get left out. Where practice is concerned, we see a democratic deficit in board governancethat is, an absence of democratic structures and processes.1 Many nonprofit boards fall short of being broadly representative of the public. They tend to be limited to upper-income, professional employers and managerial persons, while the community has little or no representation. In addition, while some nonprofit boards do little beyond rubber-stamping the actions of their executive staff, others are prey to the iron law of oligarchy, where decision-making power is concentrated in a small number of non-elected board members and the executive director.

More employee ownership is needed Grassroots Economic Organizing

It is becoming increasingly obvious to people that profit maximization has very little to do with meeting actual human or ecological needs. According to the Economic Policy Institute and other researchers, corporate profits and worker productivity rise independently of workers' real wages. And increases in corporate profit are more likely to enrich shareholders than to be reinvested in new jobs with good wages. We need better ways of doing business.

Fortunately, there are thousands of profitable businesses that are structurally aligned to take into account the actual needs of workers, and as such, the broader community. In these businesses, workers are the democratic owners of the business. They don't offshore their own jobs, they don't siphon dividends away from their own productivity and they are still provided incentives to maintain a profitable business. For that reason, I agree with The Sun's recent commentary supporting the Maryland Employee Ownership Act ( Jan. 2). It's a step in the right direction.

A Boon for Shared Equity Homeownership Grassroots Economic Organizing

Shared-equity homeownership programs just had a big win: Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) committed in their Underserved Markets Plans to increase access to mortgages for shared-equity homebuyers over the next three years.

These Underserved Markets Plans (UMPs) were approved at the end of 2017, and are a part of the implementation of the Federal Housing Finance Agencys (FHFA) Duty to Serve program. The intent behind the new program is to bring liquidity to underserved markets and increase access to financing. This is precisely the issue that many shared-equity homeownership programs have faced, especially in the midst and aftermath of the foreclosure crisis: their mortgage-ready buyers have been unable to obtain financing for home purchase.

The barriers to mortgage financing for homebuyers in community land trusts and below-market-rate housing programs hasin large partbeen explained by the lack of lender confidence that they could sell these loans on the secondary market, coupled with the greater administrative burden of underwriting these relatively small loans. In the multifamily space, resident-owned communities (ROCs)in which residents cooperatively own the land on which their manufactured, or mobile, homes sithave faced their own challenges to accessing financing.

Will unschooled children choose to develop skills that lead to success? Free State Project

Question: Hi James, I've relied on writing in my career and personal life, and it has served me well. But it's hard for me to imagine that I would have learned it as well or as thoroughly if writing exercises hadn't been forced on me in school. I can't imagine a situation where I would have chosen to take a class that required writing more than one or two essays. But since they were required, both at school and in college, I muddled through them and in the process became a pretty good writer.

Do you ever worry that your kids won't pick up proficiency in things that will serve them well but aren't very appealing on their surface? Writing essays = not appealing. Being able to write well for the rest of your life = priceless. At least for me this has been true. And as much as I didn't enjoy certain aspects of school, I am seriously grateful for being forced to write. This is the constant struggle I have between the philosophy of letting children be free, which I adore, and the reality that some things that will likely make life better and easier in the long run are unattractive in the short run. I'd love to read your thoughts on this!

Answer: Whew, this is a tough one. I have to admit, Ive had similar thoughts myself. Over the past 7 years Ive made a career out of being able to communicate clearly, and I have to think some fairly large portion of my skill development (particularly the written part) comes from my time in formal schooling. By unschooling my kids, am I damning them to a life where they simply never have the option to do the type of work that I have? Am I hamstringing their career choices by not putting them through the same rigorous writing regimen that I was put through in high school and college?

Lets take a step back for a second, because there is a lot in this email that needs unpacking. But it's hard for me to imagine that I would have learned it as well or as thoroughly if writing exercises hadn't been forced on me in school. I can't imagine a situation where I would have chosen to take a class that required writing more than one or two essays.

The press has played an active role in the Trump-Russia collusion story since its inception. It helped birth it

By Lee Smith

Half the country wants to know why the press wont cover the growing scandal now implicating the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Department of Justice, and threatening to reach the State Department, Central Intelligence Agency, and perhaps even the Obama White House.

If the press did its job and reported the facts, the argument goes, then it wouldnt just be Republicans and Trump supporters demanding accountability and justice. Americans across the political spectrum would understand the nature and extent of the abuses and crimes touching not just on one political party and its presidential candidate but the rights of every American.

Thats all true, but irrelevant. The reasons the press wont cover the story are suggested in the Graham-Grassley letter itself.

Steele Was a Media Informant

The letter details how Christopher Steele, the former British spy who allegedly authored the documents claiming ties between the Trump campaign and Russia, told the FBI he wasnt talking to the press about his investigation. In a British court, however, Steele acknowledged briefing several media organizations on the material in his dossier.

According to the British court documents, Steele briefed the New York Times, Washington Post, Yahoo! News, The New Yorker, and CNN. In October, he talked to Mother Jones reporter David Corn by Skype. It was Corns October 31 article anonymously sourced to Steele that alerted the FBI their informant was speaking to the press. Grassley and Graham referred Steele to...

WaPo Just Admitted Russian Propaganda Was Actually US Mainstream Media, and Was Factual The Event Chronicle

The Washington Post went from claiming that Russian bots were using alternative media outlets to spread fake news to admitting that they were actually sharing mainstream media stories that favored Trump.

By Rachel Blevins

During the 2016 election, the narrative that interference from the Russians had an impact on Donald Trumps success was alive and well, and it was pushed heavily by the Washington Post. However, the Post is now claiming that the propaganda it accused Russian bots of spreading was actually American, and it was factually accurate.

In a new story titled Russia used mainstream media to manipulate American voters, the Post admitted that instead of creating and spreading fake news, the accounts it claimed were controlled by Russians actually focused on sharing stories from American mainstream media outlets, and one of their most used sources just happened to be The Washington Post.

Citing an analysis by Columbia University social-media researcher Jonathan Albright, the Post noted that the majority of the Russian propaganda spread by these accounts was made up of factually accurate stories from American sources:

 

While the Post did not admit it directly, the claim that so-called Russian accounts on social media were frequently sharing mainstream media reports that elevated Trump or criticized Clinton, is a far cry from the claims the Post made during the election.

In November 2016, the Post published a story titled, ...

Mueller Indictments Finds No Collusion With Any American And Russian Meddling Did Not Affect Outcome Of Election

Mueller Spent Millions Of Dollars For Collusion Investigation Just To Bust A Russian Troll Farm?

By Susan Duclos

While the massacre at a Florida high school which killed 17 people has been dominating the headlines, it has been noted that what we are not seeing in the headlines is the whole Russian collusion, narrative the media has been rambling on about non-stop for the last year.

Make no mistake, we are in no way asserting the horrendous school shooting shouldnt be covered, we have covered the FBIs extreme incompetence in regards to ignoring reports about the shooter Nikolas Cruz, ourselves, and will follow up with newer details being exposed, but that is no reason to completely ignore other news updating readers on the new Mueller indictments against a Russian troll farm, while determining that no American, colluded with the Russians, and their social media interference did not affect the outcome of the election.

MUELLER INDICTS 13 RUSSIAN, FIND NO COLLUSION WITH ANY AMERICAN

Special Counsel Robert Mueller after spending millions of taxpayer dollars, indicted four Americans on charges completely unrelated to Russia meddling in the U.S. presidential election, and the bombshell news that broke on Friday is the Russian collusion investigation headed up by Mueller, has indicted 13 Russians for attempting to sow discord in the U.S. political system, including the 2016 presidential election, with no collusion on the part of any American.

While liberals are hailing this as a victory, screaming Russian interference, here are some key points:

According to the indictment, the Internet Research Agency, a Russian troll farm, started interfering as early as 2014 in U.S. politics, extending to the 2016 presidential election. The defendants, posing as U.S. persons and creating false U.S. personas, operated social media groups designed to attract U.S. audiences by stealing U.S. identities and falsely claiming to be U.S. activists....

Polish Central Bank Secretly Funds Anti-Crypto Youtube Propaganda Videos The Event Chronicle

By Molly Jane Zuckerman

The Central Bank of Poland has admitted to funding anti-cryptocurrency campaigns on social media, specifically Polish Youtuber Marcin Dubiel and his Dec. 2017 video, I LOST ALL THE MONEY?!, Polish news portal money.pl reports.

The social media campaign against crypto was carried out by Central Bank of Poland in conjunction with Polish Youtube partner network Gamellon, Google Ireland Limited, and Facebook Ireland Limited, allocating about 91,000 zloty (around $27,000) for producing anti-crypto content.

Money.pl reports that the Central Banks campaign also had videos published on the Planeta Faktw (Planet of Facts) Youtube channel, which has over 1.5 mln subscribers. Dubiels Youtube channel has over 900,000 subscribers.

Dubiels video makes no mention of the paid aspect of the Youtubers inspiration. Since Dec. 8, 2017, the Dubiels digital story of a young man who invests all his money in crypto only to lose it all has amassed over 500,000 views.

The description of the video contains the hashtag #uwaajnakryptowaluty, which is the Polish Financial Supervision Authority and the Central Bank of Polands joint website dedicated to warnings against the use of cryptocurrencies.

The clips dramatic climax takes place in a restaurant when the main character cant pay for his dates meal with his new crypto investment, causing her to throw fiat money at him and storm out in a huff.

Heres Why Banks Hate Cryptocurrencies The Event Chronicle

By Zero Hedge

Banks like to pretend that theyre so much more established and secure than the world of cryptocurrencies, but as anybody who pays close attention to the headlines would knowthats just not the case

Setting aside all of their rhetoric about embracing the blockchain, banks have mostly avoided or opposed cryptos (Goldman Sachs, sensing the opportunity for profit, is one notable exception), often citing their volatility and the ease with which they can be used to launder money as qualities that disqualify them from being taken seriously (though, as we recently witnessed with the US dollar, perhaps banks need to rework this volatility argument a bit).  Even yesterdays announcement of the first criminal charges against a cryptocurrency trader pales in comparison to the many, many crimes that banks (or even one bank) have settled allegations of. The real answer to why the banks dislike cryptocurrencies is probably because they feel threatened. The recent selloff notwithstanding, the rise of cryptocurrencies has continued unabated, despite the efforts of some of the most powerful governments on Earth, while the concept is still very young, it does have potential to shake up the aging fiat system. In order to understand the race between the banks and cryptocurrencies, we developed a visual to see just how David is comparing to Goliath.

The CDCs Fictional Flu Death Stats and Tamiflus Lethal Side Effects The Event Chronicle

You dont sell the drug, you sell the disease.   George Merck, founder of Merck

Flu season, or at least reporting on it, has reached a fever pitch but the flu propaganda telling you it may be dangerous NOT to take Tamiflu and/or the flu vaccine may be a far greater risk to your health than the flu itself.

By Sayer Ji

Take a look at this recent hysterical headline from the Daily Mail UK: Flu virus has killed THOUSANDS in just ONE week with the death toll set to rise and Tamiflu shortages being reported across the country. Sounds terrifying, right? They even went out of their way to capitalize THOUSANDS to make the point, presumably, that you or your loved ones could be the next causalty.

According to the Daily Mail UK report, New CDC statistics show over 4,000 Americans died from the flu or pneumonia during the third week of January.

Did you notice that despite their headline stating it was flu virus which killed THOUSANDS, they are referencing CDC statistics which clearly state that it was either the flu or pneunonia. Well, which one is it? Something doesnt add up here.

The CDC Admits Their Flu Death Statistics Arent Based On Confirmed Influenza Cases

The CDCs own reource page on the topic titled, Estimating Seasonal Influenza-Associated Deaths in the United States, clearly states both that, Seasonal influenza-related deaths are deaths that occur in people for whom seasonal influenza infection was likely a contributor to the cause of death, but not necessarily the primary cause of death, and even more succinctly: CDC does not know exactly how many people die from seasonal flu each year.

So, what is the CDCs magical formula through which it arrives at its flu death statistics?

Stop Supporting Prison Slavery By Avoiding These 7 Companies

By Arjun Walia

Prison is big business, and working prisoners are a corporations dream. Prisoners are being contracted for work right now on a massive scale, and despite the alarming and unsustainable growth of inmate numbers in the United States, incentive to lock people up is only increasing. This is the income that prisons comprising one of the fastest-growing industries in the United States, backed by Wall Street depend on:

Now prison labor based in private prisons is a multimillion-dollar industry with its own trade exhibitions, conventions, websites, and mail-order/Internet catalogs (Pelaez 2008). . . . The industry also has direct advertising campaigns, architecture companies, construction companies, investment houses on Wall Street, plumbing supply companies, food supply companies, armed security, and padded cell manufacturing, all of which rival those of any other private industry (Pelaez 2008). Furthermore, private prisoners at the state level produce a variety of goods and services, from clothing to toys to telemarketing and customer service (Erlich 2005). The private federal prison industry also produces nearly all military goods, from uniform helmet to ammunition, along with durable goods ranging from paint to office furniture (Pelaez 2008). (...

Fracking Waste Is Radioactive And Endangers Human Health No Safe Way To Dispose Of It

Hydraulic fracturing more commonly known as fracking may still be legal in many states across the U.S., but theres no denying that its a highly controversial practice.

By David Williams

In the state of Colorado, which has issued strict guidelines regarding disposal of waste water from fracking sites, has now ruled that the waste is far too dangerous and therefore cannot be disposed through the usual methods.

This is according to a new report that details how operators have been wrongly reporting the levels of radioactivity found in landfills and land spreads, preventing the fact that theyve exceeded guidelines from being known.

The report, which was written by Dr. Wendell G. Bradley, a known expert on the subject, and released by the Center for Research on Globalization, goes over the dangers of the typical fracking operation before dishing out all of the information regarding the biggest problem of the practice:

Finding a safe and proper way of disposing all of the resulting waste water. The report states that operators are currently dumping waste from Oil and Gas Exploration and Production (E&P) at radiation levels highly in excess of guidelines for technically enhanced, normally occurring radioactive materials (TENORM).

For reference, the acceptable release levels for radium has to be below three picocuries per gram, and it is said that releases at levels higher than 210 picocuries per gram warrants official corrective action. But corrected measurements show that previously reported release levels have been flat out wrong and are in fact a thousand times higher than what is deemed acceptable.

Indeed, data from a Gradient Corporation study shows that the release levels of radium in radioactive tank sludge was recorded to be at 1,293 picocuries per gram. As you can imagine, such a high level is clearly far above TENORM guidelines.

Purported Miniature UFO Wreckage Found In Museum After Went Missing For Decades The Event Chronicle

By Latest UFO Sightings

After went missing for decades, the wreckage of an alleged miniature UFO has been found at a museum in the UK. Alleged fragments of a UFO, which was discovered in 1957 in Northern Englands remote area, have turned up in the archives of the London Science Museum.

The apparent flying saucer was noticed on Silpho Moor, an open land area in North Yorkshire. The incident has been eventually called Britains Roswell.

David Clarke, a principal research fellow at the Sheffield Hallam University in the UK, said that he discovered the artefacts after making a presentation at the Science Museum late in 2017.

Clarke, a contemporary legends expert, said that he discovered the fragments in a plastic box along with a compilation of files. He said a large tin cigarette box with a label marked Victoria and Albert Museum alleged UFO bits was inside the files.

At first, Clarke thought it must be a joke, or he found worthless pieces of metal. They were stored off-site, so Clarke arranged for the files to be sent to London for examination.

Inside the box was a collection of five paper envelopes, labelled A-E, that contains pieces of metal, tiny bits of copper foil, and fused metal/plastic amalgam. When Clarke examined the associated correspondence, he noted references to pieces of The Silpho Moor Object with a note saying these were forwarded to the museum for scientific examination in 1963.

Three men discovered the object on Silpho Moor. They later paid 10 ($13.89) to another party who had removed it from the Moor. A section of the upper part of the said UFO was later on removed, and the object was split in two. Then extracted from the object was the central section, resulting to the revelation of copper wire that held a copper book, which contained 17 small copper foil pages.

Clarke said that the little copper foil pages were marked with hieroglyphic-type lettering, which interestingly corresponds with letters engraved onto the copper base of the primary object.

Until now, the mystery about the UFO remains. Stories and conspiracy theories have grown up around it.

Extraterrestrials Are Coming How Would the World React? (WATCH Video) The Event Chronicle

By The Daily Galaxy

As humans reach out technologically to see if there are other life forms in the universe, one important question needs to be answered: When we make contact, how are we going to handle it? Will we feel threatened and react in horror? Will we embrace it? Will we even understand it? Or, will we shrug it off as another thing we have to deal with in our increasingly fast-paced world? Or, would it be a welcomed alternative to the daily tweetstorms coming out of Washington, DC?

Great Britains former Astronomer Royal, Martin Rees, discusses the possibility that life might exist beyond Earth. This is a fascinating explanation of the likelihood, and a wry assessment of the difficulties of discussing it seriously.The period of time occupied by organic intelligence is just a thin sliver between early life and the long era of the machines, says Martin Rees is Emeritus Professor of Cosmology and Astrophysics, at the University of Cambridge, the Astronomer Royal, a member of Britains House of Lords, and a former President of the Royal Society. Because such civilizations would develop at different rates, its extremely unlikely that we will find intelligent life at the same stage of development as us. More likely, that life will still be either far simpler, or an already fully electronic intelligence.

The question of whether advanced civilizations exist elsewhere in the universe has always been vexed with three large uncertainties in the Drake equation, said University of Rochester astronomer, Adam Frank. Weve known for a long time approximately how many stars exist. We didnt know how many of those stars had planets that could potentially harbor life, how often life might evolve and lead to intelligent beings, and how long any civilizations might last before becoming extinct.

Estimates from NASAs Kepler Mission data suggests that out of the estimated 2 x 10^22 stars in the known universe, 20 percent have planets that reside in habitable zones that have temperatures, atmospheres, and other traits that could support life. So that tak...

Life in the Cosmos: In Its Advanced Forms May Be Incomprehensible to the Human Mind The Event Chronicle

By The Daily Galaxy

If life really does form readily in Earth-like conditions, it should have started many times right here on Earth, so we should look for a shadow biosphere of life, but not as we know it, under our very noses.'

Although there is plenty of habitable real estate out there, habitable is not the same as inhabited, says Arizona State University Regents Professor and noted cosmologist Paul Davies. Because nobody knows how non-life transitioned to life on Earth, it is impossible to estimate the odds of it springing forth elsewhere in the universe.In its most advanced forms, Davies has aruged, life may exists in forms beyond matter as we know it. That it might have no fixed size or shape; have no well-defined boundaries. Is dynamical on all scales of space and time. Or, conversely, does not appear to do anything at all that we can discern. Does not consist of discrete, separate things; but rather it is a system, or a subtle higher-level correlation of things.

Are matter and information, Davies asks, all there is? Five hundred years ago, Davies writes, the very concept of a device manipulating information, or software, would have been incomprehensible. Might there be a still higher level, as yet outside all human experience, that organizes electrons?

If so, this third level would never be manifest through observations made at the informational level, still less at the matter level.

We should be open to the distinct possibility that advanced alien technology a billion years old may operate at the third, or perhaps even a fourth or fifth level -all of which are totally incomprehensible to the human mind at our current state of evolution in 2018.

Davies presented his findings during a press briefing Feb. 16 at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Austin, Texas.

During my career, opinion has shifted from lifes origin being a bizarre fluke unique in the universe (almost a miracle in the words of Francis Crick), to the belief that the universe is teeming with life (a cosmic imperative in the words of Christian de Duve), Davies said. How can we settle the matter? For several decades astronomers have been sweeping the skies with radio telescopes hoping to stumble across a mess...

The Search for Aliens Starts Now in Antarctica The Event Chronicle

By Amorain

Its hard to get over putting your lifes work in harms way. Britney Schmidt hasnt. The Georgia Tech researcher has tested the limits of underwater robots swimming beneath Antarctic ice shelves, a dry run for looking for life in outer space, and it hasnt gotten any easier.

Anytime you take your whole programs work and dangle it off of a fiber optic cable through meters of iceits a little unnerving, Schmidt tells Popular Mechanics, emailing from the Antarctic research station on the south tip of Ross Island.

This week, Schmidt and her team of researchers are leaving the Antarctic after a busy three months at the far end of the Earth. They are testing Icefin, a drone built to explore the extreme ecosystems lurking beneath thick ice. The waters beneath our planets ice sheet are fascinating, turning up species few people have ever laid eyes on. But they are not the final target of this chase.

Alien Seas

Icefin is meant to search for alien lifea bug hunt, as some scientists cheerfully call it. It is bound for the icy waters of Jupiters moon, Europa, possibly as soon as 2030.

The new equipment includes new sensorsto see if Europa could support the rise of life.

Icefin is capable of deploying through small drill holes in the ice, similar to what will one day be needed to explore Europa, Schmidt says. In the meantime, this project is looking to understand how ice-ocean interactions operate in Antarctica, and how these processes may couple to biological communities.

Like many subsea drones, the 10-foot-long Icefin is shaped like a torpedo. It made headlines in 2014 as one of the prototype drones that plumbed the Antarctic as part of a NASA program to test the technology. Now, a new program called the Ross Ice Shelf and Europa Underwater Probe (RISE UP), NASA is funding three expeditions to put an upgraded Icefin under the ice. This was its first deployment.

Sympathetic Vibratory Physics, discovered By Jon Ernst Worrell Keely, reveals a vital puzzle piece in investigating the polar streams of force and their harmonic, enharmonic, and disharmonic triune expressions from the neutral center, The mystery of the 3, 6, & 9 is found within Keelys musical physic of life, sympathetic vibration, and Mind.

Among his discoveries include disintegrating quartz ; disassociation of water; amplification of thought and sound through Trexar (silver, platinum, gold wire) harmonically shaped capacitors to produce an etheric vapor capable of hydraulic work. He discovered nature divides itself in triplets, and may divide into infinite regress. Keely claimed to have subdivided matter in 7 distinct levels. He also theorized of the actinic rays, emanating from neutral center of stars to the brains of man, claiming the brain was an interface for these sympathetic streams. He produced Dynaspheres, musically designed globe capable of producing etheric force. A cool ionic breeze can be felt feet away from dynashperes, even in a static state. To become a dynamic engine for etheric force requires a coherent mind in which the dynashpere can engage in sympathy. Keelys science demonstrated a direct interconnection between mind and matter, and the necessity for mankind to investigate more balanced modes of power generation.

Scientists Upload the Mind of a Worm Into Computer and Teach It Tricks The Event Chronicle

By Brett Tingley

Researchers at Technische Universitt Wien (Vienna Technical University) have uploaded the mind of a nematode into a computer and run it as a virtual recreation of the worms mind. The virtual worm was then able to learn a novel behavior on its own without human intervention. The university press release announcing the experiment even led with the question Is it a computer program or a living being?, writing that at TU Vienna, the boundaries become blurred. Is this the beginning of a new wave of artificial intelligence and biohybrid organisms, or merely a neat simulation?

Why are the smallest organisms always the creepiest?

For this experiment, researchers began by analyzing the mind of the common parasitic nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. The C. elegans is a prime target of neuroscientific research because its entire neural network is composed of just 300 neurons. Thats enough to wriggle around, eat, and avoid physical stimuli. The human brain, meanwhile, is thought to house around 100 billion neurons (also used to mostly wriggle around, eat, and avoid physical stimuli, oddly enough). The simple structure of the nematodes mind means its entire brain could be recreated accurately with todays computer software. So why not fire the thing up in virtual and see what happens? Lets hope the nematode isnt far more conscious than we give it credit for.

Scientists Reverse The Age of White Blood Cells In A Female Human Being Theyre Now 20 Years Younger The Event Chronicle

By Arjun Walia

Elizabeth Parris, the CEO of Bioviva USA Inc, has become the very first human being to successfully, from a biological standpoint, reverse the  age of her white blood cells, thanks to her own companys experimental therapies. Bioviva utilizes intramural and extramural peer-reviewed research to create therapies for age-related diseases (Parkinsons, Alzheimers, cancer, heart-disease), and now, they have reversed 20 years of telomere shortening in a human for the first time.

Telomeres are short segments of DNA that cap the ends of every chromosome and act as a protective feature against wear and tear, which occurs naturally as the human body ages. As we age, these telomeres become shorter and shorter as our cells continue to divide more and more. Eventually they become too short to protect the chromosome, which is what causes our cells to malfunction and age related diseases to start setting in.

In September of last year, the 44 year old volunteered to partake in two of her own companys experimental gene therapies; one intended to battle stem cell depletion, which happens when we age and leads to various age related diseases, and the other intended to protect against loss of muscle mass with age.

In Parrishs case, specialized clinical testing in Houston, Texas, revealed that her telomeres were short for her age, which left her vulnerable to age-related diseases earlier on in life.

This type of gene therapy has been tested before, but prior to Parrish, it had only been used to lengthen the telomeres of cultured cells and mice; it has never before been tried on a human patient. The successful trial in mice was conducted by Maria Blasco and her team at the Spanish National Cancer Research Centre (CNIO) in Madrid, who reported the telomerase gene result in 2012.

Blasco told The Scientist in an email, We demonstrated that AAV9-Tert gene therapy was sufficient to delay age-related pathologies and extend both median and maximum longevity in mice. Many pathologies were delayed, including cancer. (source)

After the gene therapy was completed on Parrish, the...

One Hundred New Planets Confirmed in Kepler Spacecraft Field of View 1/400th of the Milky Way The Event Chronicle

By The Daily Galaxy

We started out analyzing 275 candidates, of which 149 were validated as real exoplanets. In turn, 95 of these planets have proved to be new discoveries, said U.S. doctoral student Andrew Mayo at the National Space Institute (DTU Space) at the Technical University of Denmark. This research has been underway since the first K2 data release in 2014. This brings the total number of new exoplanets found with the K2 mission up to almost 300.

The research was conducted partly as a senior project during his undergraduate studies at Harvard College. It also involved a team of international colleagues from institutions such as NASA, Caltech, UC Berkeley, the University of Copenhagen, and the University of Tokyo. The Kepler spacecraft was launched in 2009 to hunt for exoplanets in a single patch of sky, but in 2013, a mechanical failure crippled the telescope. However, astronomers and engineers devised a way to repurpose and save the space telescope by changing its field of view periodically. This solution paved the way for the follow-up K2 mission, which is still ongoing as the spacecraft searches for exoplanet transits.These transits can be found by registering dips in light caused by the shadow of an exoplanet as it crosses in front of its host star. These dips are indications of exoplanets, which must then be examined more closely in order to confirm their nature. Exoplanetary research is a relatively young field. The first planet orbiting a star similar to our own sun was detected in 1995. Today some 3,600 exoplanets have been found, ranging from rocky Earth-sized planets to large gas giants like Jupiter.

Its difficult work to distinguish which signals are actually coming from exoplanets. Mayo and his colleagues analyzed hundreds of signals of potential exoplanets to determine which signals were created by exoplanets and which were caused by other sources. We found that some of the signals were caused by multiple star systems or noise from the spacecraft. But we also detected planets that range from sub Earth-sized to the size of Jupiter and larger, said Mayo.

One of the planets detected was orbiting a very bright star. We validated a planet on a 10-day orbit around a star called HD 212657, which is now the brightest star found by either the Kepler or K2 missions to host a valid...

Bipartisan Analysts Note Problems with Trump Budget Concord Coalition

Bipartisan Analysts Note Problems with Trump Budget swinn Tue, 02/20/2018 - 08:41

During the second broadcast of "Facing the Future" budget experts expressed concern over the nations path after recent deficit-financed tax and spending legislation, and they saw a lack of fiscal discipline in the presidents Fiscal 2019 budget proposal.

Listen

Facing the Future

Our weekly Radio Show and Podcast on the nations fiscal and economic challenges

As the program host, I had the opportunity to interview Committee for Economic Development Senior Vice President Joe Minarik, Bipartisan Policy Center Senior Vice President Bill Hoagland and Concord Coalition Executive Director Robert L. Bixby.

The presidents budget proposal calls for a major infrastructure investment by the federal government, but Minarik said now is not a good time for the government to be increasing spending on any front unless there is a plan to pay for it.

There is no way that we should be undertaking that kind of a program without, at the same time, taking the steps that are necessary to put our overall fiscal house in order, he said.

Minarik added: If you are going to get consensus in Congress, you are going to need to have a program where everyone is perceived to be carrying their weight, everyone is putting in a fair share of the effort in reducing the deficit.

We are going to need some very serious leadership, he said.

But Hoagland fears that no elected leaders are...

Beyond Comprehension! Supermassive Black Holes are Outgrowing Their Host Galaxies The Event Chronicle

By The Daily Galaxy

The growth of the biggest black holes in the Universe is outrunning the rate of formation of stars in the galaxies they inhabit, according to two new studies using data from NASAs Chandra X-ray Observatory and other telescopes and described in our latest press release.

In this graphic an image from the Chandra Deep Field-South is shown. The Chandra image (blue) is the deepest ever obtained in X-rays. It has been combined with an optical and infrared image from the Hubble Space Telescope (HST), colored red, green, and blue. Each Chandra source is produced by hot gas falling towards a supermassive black hole in the center of the host galaxy, as depicted in the artists illustration.One team of researchers, led by Guang Yang at Penn State, calculated the ratio between a supermassive black holes growth rate and the growth rate of stars in its host galaxy and found it is much higher for more massive galaxies. For galaxies containing about 100 billion solar masses worth of stars, the ratio is about ten times higher than it is for galaxies containing about 10 billion solar masses worth of stars.

Using large amounts of data from Chandra, HST and other observatories, Yang and his colleagues studied the growth rate of black holes in galaxies at distances of 4.3 to 12.2 billion light years from Earth. The X-ray data included the Chandra Deep Field-South and North surveys and the COSMOS-Legacy surveys.

Another group of scientists, led by Mar Mezcua of the Institute of Space Sciences in Spain, independently studied 72 galaxies located at the center of galaxy clusters at distances ranging up to about 3.5 billion light years from Earth and compared their properties in X-ray and radio waves. Their work indicates that the black hole masses were about ten times larger than masses estimated by another method using the assumption that the black holes and galaxies grew in tandem.

The Mezcua study used X-ray data from Chandra and radio data from the Australia Telescope Compact Array, the Karl G. Jansky Very Large Array (VLA) and Very Long Baseline Array. One object in their sample is the large galaxy in the center of the Hercules galaxy cluster. The image shown above includes Chandra data (purple), VLA data (blue) and HST optical data (appearing white).

How to tell which plastics are safe to use for food and drinks (food grade) The Event Chronicle

By Edsel Cook

Are you sure your plastic container isnt made out of toxic materials? A Modern Survival Blog article tackles how to identify food-safe types of plastics that can store your food and water without risk of leaching.

First things first: Check the container for a Recycle symbol. A good place to start looking is the bottom of the container.

Take note of the recycle number inside that symbol. Once youve acquired it, cross-reference it with this list of plastics that are considered food-safe.

Water bottles and soft drink containers have it simple and easy. Theyre primarily made of #1 PETE, a food-safe type of plastic. However, bear in mind that the typical water/soda/juice bottle is meant to be disposed of once used.

There are also certain plastics that should be avoided like the plague. These dangerous types are either made of hazardous ingredients or leach contaminants that will ruin your consumables.

  • #3 PVC (polyvinyl chloride) is known to have carcinogens during manufacture and incineration.
  • #6 PS (polystyrene) has possible carcinogens.
  • #7 PC (polycarbonate or PC) can leach the toxic chemical BPA (Bisphenol-A).

The typical five-gallon food-grade bucket is comprised of #2 HDPE. The vast majority of these containers are opaque to protect against light that can degrade their contents. They have labels denoting them as Food Grade, Food Safe, or some similar term, and are advertised as such.

Other indicators that denote a bucket is food-grade include the cup & fork symbol and labels of approval by the United States Department of Agriculture, Food and Drugs Administration, and the National Science Foundation.

Like food-grade buckets, your standard water storage container and water barr...

China Reassigns 60,000 Soldiers to Plant Trees The Event Chronicle

By Lorraine Chow

Earlier this year, the Chinese government announced plans for a major reforestation projectgrowing 6.66 million hectares of new forests this year, an area roughly the size of Ireland.

To achieve this goal, China has reassigned more than 60,000 soldiers to plant the trees. According to the Asia Times, a large regiment from the Peoples Liberation Army, along with some of the nations armed police force, have been withdrawn from their posts near the northern border to work on the task.

The majority of the troops will be dispatched in the heavily polluted industrial province of Hebei, which has pledged to raise total forest coverage to 35 percent by the end of 2020.

Chinas State Forestry Administration aims to increase the whole countrys forest coverage rate to 23 percent from 21.7 percent by the end of the decade. Then from 2020 to 2035, China plans to further boost the percentage of forest coverage to 26 percent.

China is the worlds largest emitter and remains heavily dependent on coal, but has been cleaning up its act in recent years due to concerns over the impacts of air pollution and climate change. The country is investing heavily in renewable energy, energy efficiency and electric cars.

What is Real? and Astrology Forecast February 18-24 The Event Chronicle

Perspectives from the Sky

By Leo Knighton Tallarico

Last week we passed through the second and last eclipse of this Winter 2018 Eclipse Season, a Solar Eclipse New Moon in Aquarius.

This Eclipse Season will continue however till about March 8.  More shifting tides are coming.   More processing of what has been shifting will happen after that until around April 15.

Then events will accelerate after that and new movement forward will begin.

There is a New Moon in Aries conjunct Uranus on April 15.  And Mercury that day will go direct after a previous 3 weeks of being Retrograde.

And in the greater world, specifically the USA, Jupiter and Pluto will exactly sextile one another while making a Yod or finger of god aspect with the USA Mars.

This will be an important turning point in our world, related to what has been shifting during this Eclipse Season.

In the greater world, a Stock Market mini crash has happened during this Eclipse Season. And though it rebounded last week, the downfall is not over.  The mania of the Bull market is seeking to be revitalized, and it will for awhile.  Then the market will descend even more than before.

Events in the Middle East have intensified also during this Eclipse Season as Russia, Iran and Syria are getting in a danger zone with Israel and the USA.  And the Palestinians are affected by these changes also.

The Korea issue has been calmed down during the Winter Olympics as North Korea and South Korea are more peaceful with one another.  But this issue is far from settled.

And right at the Solar Eclipse New Moon, 13 Russians were indicted for tampering with the USA political process.  This triggers the cultural battle in the USA, and is the beginning swat of what will become a Watergate kind of investigation into the Trump administration  and Trump himself.

Also almost right at the Solar Eclipse there were 2 strong earthquakes and a solar storm directed to the Earth, and more significantly another horrific mass killing at a high school in Florida.

Lauda Describes Vibrating High Enough To Walk Through A Wall When She Was A Child The Event Chronicle

Lauda Describes Vibrating High Enough To Walk Through A Wall When She Was A Child

In this video, Lauda (also known as Soverign Ki) talks about a quantum experience she had as a child which describes her first hand knowledge of this holographic matrix reality.

Lauda says that when she was a child, the atoms in her body would begin to vibrate so fast that her physical body would literally disappear. She would then see that Earth is a hologram occurring within a dark matter void and that she could see all the way through Earth.

It puzzled her as to why she did not fall through the Earth, i.e. she questions what was keeping her in the space she was occupying.

One time in school she experimented by walking through a wall. She didnt consciously know she was walking through a wall, as to her there was no wall, it was only space.

The children and teachers saw her do this. She said that it is as if time slows down or completely stops for her and she cant hear anything going on, but apparently all of the children were screaming.

When she rationalized that she had walked through matter, she began to get very concerned that she might get stuck inside the matter if her atoms were to slow down.

She moved herself over and the children saw her going back through the wall. She was expelled from school and was forced to have sessions with a psychologist, but she didnt say anything to them because she did not trust them.

Lauda says that she no longer had these extreme episodes when she was a teenager and older.

I started the video at the point that Lauda talks about this experience, however you can always go back and listen from the beginning as what they are discussing is relevant to the times that we are in now.

How Building Regulations Subsidize Mansions Marginal REVOLUTION

Regulations that prevent land from being fully developed raise the price of housing. Thats true but land use regulations can also make some types of housing less expensive. In particular, Jaap Weel has a good post explaining how land regulations subsidize mansions.

Consider the buildings below: a mansion on a 1 acre lot in Atherton, and a 350 unit mixed use condo on a 1.6 acre lot 2 miles further up the peninsula in Redwood City. The mansion just sold for $6m. The condo building, when finished, will probably fetch hundreds of millions.

If it werent for Athertons zoning code, youd never be able to buy that mansion for a mere $6m. A developer that wanted to tear it down and build condos could bid far more than that. But the zoning code mandates single-unit buildings with a floor area ratio below 18% on lots of at least 1 acre, so $6m it is. Quite the bargain.

In a market economy bidding tends to move resources from low-valued uses to high-valued uses. Regulations that prevent bidding freeze resources into low-valued usesthats bad for the resource owners and bad for society as the total value of production is reduced but it can be good for the consumers of low-valued uses.

Addendum: For more on floor area ratio regulations, see my video on skyscrapers and slums in Mumbai.

The Strange World of Energy Vampires The Event Chronicle

By Brent Swancer

Have you ever met someone who just seems to make you tired? They may be friendly and personable, nothing necessarily wrong with them, disagreeable, or dislikable exactly, but for some reason parting ways with them makes you feel lethargic and drained. Many of you may know someone like this, may even have friends or significant others along these lines, but have you ever thought about why that might be? Well, according to some, these people, and even unseen entities lurking amongst us, could very well be what have been called energy vampires, or also psychic vampires, which greedily devour our life-energies to grow strong as we grow weak.

Contrary to the popular view of what a vampire should be according to horror fiction and films, the term of energy vampire instead encompasses a range of both people and other more mysterious beings that, rather than wielding fangs and drinking our blood, nevertheless feed off of our emotions and psychic energy for their own benefit, often leaving the victim drained, tired out, depressed, faint, sluggish, or with a heaviness in their head and limbs. Concerning human energy vampires, these individuals allegedly may do this intentionally or may not be aware that it is occurring, but the result is the same, with them feeling invigorated while the victim feels quite the opposite.

This is purportedly done through a sort of telepathic link, which allows them to attach themselves to ones emotions and thoughts and suckle off the energy like a parasite. Typically these psychic vampires are said to be outgoing and extroverted, often loud, aggressive, strong-willed, pushy and overbearing, although they can sometimes go the opposite and be morose and negative, always complaining and lamenting on their ever day lives. A researcher of the phenomenon and self-professed medium named Craig Hamilton-Parker has said of these energy vampires and their effects thus:

Psychic vampires are people who do their damage by a telepathic draining of their victims auric energy, affixing themselves to it like a parasite. They are usually dominant, extroverted, and highly talkative. In extreme cases, they are very intense and sometimes slightly manic. In these individuals, fear is usually present in the background of their consciousness. You must learn to protect yourself from their negative influences.

If a psychic vampire becomes a close friend or a partner, the long-term effect can be very harmful. At fir...

Artist Organizes Natural Objects Into Elaborate Mandalas For You To Find

By Amanda Monteiro

James Brunt is an artist known for bringing attention back to the finer details that nature has to offer us. While natural landscapes are often breathtaking on their own, imagine stumbling across one of his creations. James uses natural materials and objects he finds around his home in Yorkshire, England and creates his art in places like beaches, forests and parks. He is very mindful of not disturbing the land and has created his own code of ethics,  I am very conscious of the environment around me and take into consideration many things when deciding to make a piece of work. This code that I work to now has developed over time as my understanding of my surroundings grows. It wasnt always the case, but it is now.

His array of materials arent limited when working with an abundant natural setting. He has access to many natural materials and creates his works of art from things such as rocks, twigs, leaves and even berries if he comes across some. Once hes collected the appropriate amount of materials, he arranges them in mandala-like spirals and concentric circles. His pieces often involve detailed patterns, textures, and shapes and achieves this look from using multiples of one kind of material.

James will often welcome his fans to join him as he works but if they cant join in on the live action fun, he shares his photographs online, which are also available for purchase. Working with the environment can also be tricky, so James has to make sure that he photographs his finished work before nature plays its role.

You can check out James art on his  Facebook where he frequently shares and updates, along with his Twitter. You can also purchase his prints on his Etsy Shop.

India tests third nuclear-capable ballistic missile The BRICS Post

Surface-to-surface ballistic missile Prithvi II lifts off from a road mobile launcher at Chandipur in Odisha. It was successfully tested on February 7, 2018 [Image: DRDO, India]


The Indian Defense Ministry announced on Tuesday that it had successfully tested an intermediate range surface-to-surface ballistic missile capable of carrying nuclear warheads.

The 20-meter long Agni-II, which weighs 17 tons and can carry a payload of 1,000 kilograms over 2,000 kilometers, plays a central role in Indias nuclear deterrence and defense systems.

Designed and first tested in 1999, the Agni-II is already part of the armed services retinue of weaponry.

It was launched from the Abdul Kalam Island off coast of the south-western Indian state of Odisha on the Bay of Bengal.

Tuesdays launch is the third nuclear-capable ballistic missile launch since February 6 when the Agni-I short-range rocket was successfully tested.

On February 7, Indias Strategic Forces Command successfully tested the Prithvi-II tactical surface-to-surface short-range ballistic missile.

All three are part of Indias deterrence operations.

Operation Mjolnir (Hammer of Thor) Technology Disclosed in Stargate SG-1 The Event Chronicle

By Jonathan Carty

Stargate SG-1 has, without a doubt, proven to have disclosed several interesting pieces of key information regarding classified technology and the exopolitical situation here on Earth and beyond. Thanks to a revealing and exclusive article by Medium.com we have learned that the military/intelligence-industrial-complex works directly with Hollywood and exerts a powerful influence over a very wide variety of TV shows and movies. They govern a large portion of the entertainment industry we have been experiencing for a long time up to present day.

Thanks to a dear friend on Facebook Arbre Solaire pointing out this disclosure and suggesting this article be written, one particular episode of Stargate SG-1 titled Thors Hammer seems to reveal a special and powerful technology that was provided by Cobra via his sources recently in several of his posts. He was only recently allowed to release the majority of this intel due to security reasons but has been hinting at the Galactic Confederation exercising this technology over the past few months as of the time of this writing:

How To Connect With Universal Energy The Event Chronicle

Consciousness How To Connect With Universal Energy

By Spiritual Unite

The universal energy encompasses the entire universe, and every being residing in it. It shapes every life and directs every being in the universe towards its destiny.

To access and harness this universal energy, we must activate our creative mind, and use our cerebral abilities to tap into this perpetual energy source.

Our creative mind is different from our conscious mind and competitive mind in a way that it helps us to form new thoughts and ideas, whereas our conscious and competitive mind utilises behaviours learnt from our past.

Many thought processes can help you unleash the actual powers of your intelligent mind, and immerse in the universal energy surrounding you.

Here are the ideas and dogmas one must strengthen to ascend and diminish self-ego spiritually. Without sapping the powers of self-ego, we cannot activate our creative mind.

We must first lay down our arms in front of our thoughts, and provide them with total control. Let them rule over our physical and mental realms, without any restraints.

There are many ways that can weaken your self-ego, but one of the most effective methods to do so is by practising kindness.

Filling yourself up with empathy can do wonders to align your frequency with the universal energy. Your kindness shouldnt be limited to just humans, but all life forms insects, animals, plants etc. because all of them are a source of universal energy.

You have to surrender yourself to love, and not the superficial love which is polluting the air in contemporary times.

But the real type of love which makes people sacrifices their own needs for the betterment of their lover. It grants them with the gift of indomitable selflessness. It transforms them from mere mortals to invincible immortals.

Superficial beauty is only skin deep, and it never strengthens your creative mind. You have to look for beauty in the downtrodden and the depressed.

You must find things in people who have closed themselves off because of their fears and scars. You must help them see their beauty through your eyes.

To unlock your creative mind, you must f...

Recreating Balance: Truth and Power The Event Chronicle

Recreating Balance: Truth and Power

By Untwine

This is a simple way to determine real Ethics, beyond what may appear on the surface.

Truth and Power are basically the two things motivating all actions of all beings, but the way they relate to these two things varies a lot, which determines which path they are on at the moment.

Truth is the cause, and Power is the effects.

There are three main paths that beings can be on:

Seeking only Power : the dark path

Beings who seek only power without any regards and care for the Truth serve the dark. They only want satisfaction based on lower planes, physical etc, without any care for the higher truths which are the basis for the lower planes. They may seek knowledge, for example occult knowledge, but they have no regards for the real Truth behind the knowledge, they only want to use it for personal power. They may not be part of dark forces officially, but they serve the dark agendas one way ot the other.

Truth in service of Power : the grey path

Many beings realize, in some way or another, that to know the Truth is ultimately the Source of all power. So they seek to know some Truth, but more or less just to give themselves more Power. Here there are many variations and different paths, different nuances of grey, from darker to Lighter, depending on how much the focus is on Truth or Power. Some people may have various amounts of Truth, and they use it for various other purpose : political power, occult or psychic power, fame and recognition, power over others, financial and carreer, etc

It may appear on the surface that they serve Truth and Light, and many of their actions may really serve the Light, but they can serve both dark and Light at different moments, more or less without realizing it themselves. For example they may care more about personal enlightenment despite of the interests of healing all of creation, not realizing that they are a part of the whole. The underlying reason for this is various fears, traumas, fear of survival, etc, which push people to try and compensate, to save themselves. Deep down it is not really their main concern to know if they serve dark or Light, no matter what they tell others and themselves, what they care most about deep down is their other aims...

Collapsing the Death Timeline The Event Chronicle

By Jenny Schiltz

As we move to higher and higher frequencies, all that is within us that can not last in the higher frequencies must go, this includes the death/dying timeline. I want to share with you what I perceived to be a personal experience, but Spirit has shown me that many have experienced something similar recently.  I am also sharing with the hope that it brings clarity to what collapsing a prominent timeline can entail.

While I took a month off to really focus on the sacred passage we just went through, I went to the dentist to have a bad crown replaced with a tooth implant. It turned out that the cavity had gone below the gum line to the point where they recommended a bone graft as well. As they were putting in the cadaver bone, I was instantly shown a woman laying on a stretcher being wheeled into the emergency room. I didnt follow the image as I knew I needed to stay present and grounded during the procedure. I promptly forgot about it until I woke the next day with this woman in my vision. Again I was shown her being wheeled into the ambulance bay and realized that it was in that moment that she died.

She showed me that her life was not what she wanted it to be. She had a life of disappointment, health issues, and chronic pain. She was under 50 when her life ended and the sadness was overwhelming. The hardest part was that I knew that it could have been my story. I also knew that she had not crossed over at her time of death.

I called a shaman friend to assist me with crossing over the woman as I was in no shape to do it alone. As we worked with the woman, the information came in that while she needed assistance, it was me that would receive the deep healing.

A week prior to this I had been in meditation and was shown the Weavers and my own personal loom. Click here to read that blog. What I didnt share in that blog was that they showed me I actually had 3 looms still being weaved. These were timelines that were still playing out. There were also many looms that were no longer running and they explained that these are personal timelines that have already collapsed.

As I sat with the energy of the woman who donated her bone to my jaw, I had to come face to face with the fact that there was still a piece of me that had been playing out a life of chronic pain, disconnect, and disappointment. There was still a piece of me that didnt b...

This is a guest blog post by Marjorie Dufek, the North Carolina coordinator for The Concord Coalition.

A $20 trillion debt is insane, and our representatives carry a huge responsibility, with so many sides to each issue. With so many choices, its hard to see which is the right one.

This from East Carolina University political science major Conner Willis, as quoted in Greenvilles Daily Reflector about her experience at the Principles & Priorities event held on the ECU campus on Feb. 10.

She added: I didnt realize there are so many decisions they make, including military spending and so many taxes I didnt even know about. One thing I know: Its very important who you vote for.

To my ears, it was the sound of a successful event. As a nation, we are making commitments today that these students will be paying for in the future. Instead of leaving them a legacy of a strong economy, we are leaving them a mountain of debt.

Thats not the legacy I want to leave the next generation, and I was glad to raise their awareness of the issues. Principles & Priorities is a federal budget exercise developed by The Concord Coalition.

An ECU senior, Madison Buchness, said most of the things we talked about today, Ive never even thought about. WCTI also interviewed a participating professor who said Educational events like this are the best way for people to understand the real need for us to make hard choices.

Various ages and backgrounds were represented in the group gathered to learn more about the federal budget, with about half of them students....

Lavrov: US actions could break up Syria The BRICS Post

Lavrov previously said that there are many possible avenues of cooperation between Russia and the US in Syria [Xinhua]


In a deja vu warning, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov is warning the US that its actions in Syria will break up the country.

Four years ago, Lavrov accused the US and its invasion of Iraq of plunging the entire Middle East into chaos.

We warned long ago that the adventurism the Americans and the British started there would not end well, he said at the time.

Now, the Russian foreign minister is accusing the Americans of using the Kurds to partition Syria, which would be tantamount to playing with fire.

He said that he feared that Washington was not looking at the long-term effects of their meddling in Syrias sovereignty and territorial integrity.

In 2017, the US maintained its influence on the Al-Tanf region which borders Jordan and Iraq currently houses a large refugee camp, but Russian officials have charged that some hostile factions, such as the terrorist Al Nusra Front, slip in and out of the area.

Lavrov has called on the US to shut down this area.

He also warned Israel and Iran not to use Syria for their proxy conflict saying that a de-escalation zone in the southwest was being violated.

He called on both Israel and Iran to back down from their increased war footing in the area.

Lavrov pointed to the military and political debacle in Iraq since the US invasion as an example of what can happen when the US meddles in the region.

Iraqs unity has been called into question Terrorism is rampant there because the occupation forces paid virtually no attention to the internal political processes, and did not facilitate national dialogue, but pursued their own interests exclusively, Lavrov said in comments carried by the Russian Interfax agency.
