When the Grid Goes So Do We!

Commentary & Analysis by L. A. Marzulli

http://articles.latimes.com/2014/feb/06/business/la-fi-grid-terror-20140207

Shooters armed with assault rifles and some knowledge of electrical utilities have prompted new worries on the vulnerability of California’s vast power grid.  A 2013 attack on an electric substation near San Jose that nearly knocked out Silicon Valley’s power supply was initially downplayed as vandalism by Pacific Gas & Electric Co., the facility’s owner. Gunfire from semiautomatic weapons did extensive damage to 17 transformers that sent grid operators scrambling to avoid a blackout.

When I was recently back in the Philadelphia area we experienced a power outage which lasted from Tuesday night until the following Sunday.  There was no heat, no electricity, no running water.  In short, life as we had been accustomed to, came to a crashing halt.  If the power had not come back on when it did, people would have begun to die and the death toll would have been more than the 2o, that the media reported… lot’s more.  http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/02/14/us-usa-weather-idUSBREA120WG20140214

We had to move my ailing father out of the house and into the V. A. hospital until the power came back on.  What would have happened if the power had not come back on?  What would have happened to others in the area with babies and small children or the aged like my parents?  The moment was not lost on me and I have since taken some precautionary measures in my parents home like bringing in fire wood and storing it in the garage.

However, what if  the grid goes down and doesn’t come back on?  What if the unthinkable happens like an EMP—an Electric magnetic Pulse weapon?  I’ve discussed this before in older posts and here’s a link to one of them: http://wp.me/ph2yr-2TO

For the most part the average American family is not prepared to deal with life with out the modern conveniences we all have been accustomed to!  We simply won’t be able to cope without power, period.  This is why it is important to begin to prepare some kind of emergency back up plan.  Food, water, fire wood, and other fuels like Kerosene and gasoline for a generator are essential items to stock pile and have readily on hand for the emergency that is sure to come at some point.

In closing todays’ short post.   There are two choices set before us.  The first choice is to pretend this kind of event will never happen and so do nothing about it.  The second is to view the recent power outage as a warning and begin to prepare for what may come in the future.  California is experiencing the worst drought in its history.  The East coast is getting record snow fall and low temperatures.  England is being flooded.  South America is beginning to ration water.   Can we really say this is business as usual or is it what Yashua/Jesus warned us would precede His coming.  In my opinion, the signs are here and only a fool will not heed the warnings.  Do we have eyes to see?

Why the Church Must Be Abandoned

By TLB Contributor: Dave Hodges.

As a trained researcher, I appreciate the virtue of simplicity. You’ve probably heard this admonition before: The simplest explanation is usually the right one. Even police detectives use it to deduce who’s the likeliest suspect in a murder case. Physicians often ­use the principle to determine the illness behind a set of symptoms. This line of reasoning is called Occam’s razor.

Occam’s razor is utilized in numerous ways throughout the world as a means to decipher a problem or situation and eliminate all the extraneous variables. In other words, simplicity is your best friend. When faced with a decision on which is the m0ost likely strategy to be successful, generally, the most simple choice is your best bet.

For example, does Congress serve your needs, yes or no? Don’t complicate the issue. Can you even name one thing that this administration has done to help the middle class? Please name me just one thing that Obama has done to improve your life….

What has Obama done to strengthen the family? What has Obama done to improve the education of your children? What has Obama done to improve the economic plight of the American people? The SIMPLE truth is that Obama has not done a thing to help one American, not even one time. By using the principle of Occam’s Razor, it should be easy to determine if Obama is your enemy and needs to regarded as such in all matters.

Christianity Is America’s Last Hope

All of our social institutions have been corrupted and taken over by the forces of evil that we most often refer to as the New World Order. There is not even one institution which reflects the values of your family. If you doubt the veracity of this statement, then please answer the following questions.

Raise your hand if you parents feel that your child’s, anything goes, government school reflects the moral values of your family?

Raise your hand if you feel that our entertainment industry, which embraces every perversion known to man, reflects the moral values of your family?

Raise your hand if you feel the government reflects your belief in hard work, fairness and truly is representative of the moral values of your family?

These institutions are serving an agenda which is far different than you are teaching to your children. If you wonder why your children stray so far from their teachings, I have just identified three reasons why this is true.

Many feel that the one institution that has the capability to defend the beliefs that we hold dear is the church. Along these lines, I have one more question.

Raise your hand if you feel that the Church takes a stand against infanticide, wars of occupation that kill millions of innocent people, corrupt politicians, sexual perversion and government corruption? I must be addressing people who either have no arms or who are horribly discouraged.

For most of you, your church has abandoned you just like the government, the entertainment industry and the schools. Where is a person to turn?

Christians Need to Embrace Occam’s Razor

If you are a true Christian, you must be really concerned about what is taking place inside of your church. The Bible says that to whosoever’s voice you will listen to, that he is your master. “He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God”(John 8:47).

To further Satan’s own success he must have a church, and this church will teach that Satan is God. In order to accomplish this goal, Satan must be very careful, very deceptive, very secretive. We are witnessing the silent takeover of the Church by the forces of evil in the Department of Homeland Security, the IRS and the government as a whole.

Above all else, the church should be calling government officials out when they violate the word of God. But instead, we are witnessing the opposite. Government doctrine is replacing the word of God in a furtherance of the grand deception.

All Hail the Government

The church has forsaken its role as the moral authority in the country and instead it is adopting the secular notion that government is all-knowing and all-powerful.

The forces of deception must employ more cunning here than ever before. No one must know that it is Satan’s church, and no one must find out that the modern-day church is the way to Hell. Christians have become confused because the doctrines and dogma of the religion have been complicated in order to obfuscate the truth.

In particular, Christians are the single most common group that needs to pay attention to the principles of parsimony. First of all, the Christian religion is based upon simplicity in which one is called to believe that Jesus is the son of God. Salvation comes through belief in Jesus Christ. Is it really that simple? Evil is long (i.e. the tax codes) and beauty and truth are simple (i.e. the principles of Christianity).

Christian doctrine does not teach that salvation comes from serving the government, but your church is teaching exactly that.

The modern interpretation of Romans 13 is pure blasphemy. This scripture has been morphed into a doctrine espousing the “Divine Right of Kings” in which God has somehow chosen a king to ruthlessly rule over a people and it is incumbent upon the people to accept their “God-given fate”, The flock are commanded to “…submit himself to the governing authorities, for there is no authority except that which God has established.” This false interpretation is nothing but a divine coronation of a ruthless, self-serving government and Christians are expected to capitulate and honor the same kind of thievery, lawlessness and murder which inspired Jesus to expel the moneychangers from the Temple. All hail the holy government.

What Kind of God Would Allow This?

The Clergy Response Team falls under the umbrella series of programs known as National Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (NOVAD) which is a non-profit, member organization which shares knowledge and resources throughout a disaster. These organizations are run by DHS/FEMA! This DHS/FEMA sponsored organization helps to prepare, respond, recover and to mitigate the damage caused by some unknown disaster presumably which lies in the future of humanity. However, this is the same organization which is training to confiscate guns and to use lethal force against protesters. Where is it written in the scripture that your pastor is to serve the secular Clergy Response Team? This, in all likelihood makes your pastor an employee of the federal government. Oh, and it gets worse.

According to the Internal Revenue Service, no substantial part of a religious, tax exempt church may engage in any activity which may be attempting to influence legislation and the church may not intervene in political campaigns. In other words, if the government decides to secretly disappear dissidents, the church must remain silent or risk losing its tax exemption. If the government continues to expand its infanticide policies by extending the murder of babies to include post-delivery abortion, then the church must remain silent. If the government engages in any heinous, genocidal act, such as the murder of 1.2 million Iraqis, under the false pretense of looking for weapons of mass destruction, the church must remain silent or risk losing the tax advantages for being a 501 (c)(3) tax exempt organization.

Combine the 501 (c)(3) financial motivation with the DHS inspired NOVAD directive for clergy to remind their flocks of their Christian duty to obey their government under any and all conditions, we are witnessing the neutering of our most precious institution and the ultimate salvation of millions could hang in the balance.

There is clearly a time when Christians should disobey civil authority. Acts 5:27-29 states that “Having brought the apostles, they made them appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest. We gave you strict orders not to teach in this Name,’ he said. ‘Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.’ Peter and the other apostles replied: ‘We must obey God rather than men!’ Could it be more clear that as long as the law of the land does not contradict the law of God, Christians are commanded to obey the government. However, if the law of the government contradicts God’s word, Christians are commanded to disobey the government and obey God’s law.

The 501-C-3 tax exemption = 30 pieces of silver.

The Solution

As America faces her biggest challenges in the days ahead, a strong, viable and strong faith is needed to weather the storm that is coming. The government has weakened your anchor of faith in much the same way that it has compromised the schools. So what is a good Christian to do?

What have parents done in response to schools who stand for nothing and embrace anti-family values? They have taken their children out of the schools and formed associations with other parents who have done the same.

The solution with regard to who controls the Church, the IRS or the Christians, has a solution. The answer is simple. Respectfully withdraw your membership from your tax exempt church and form a small Bible study group with friends and family. Keep the numbers low so that you do not run afoul of local zoning ordinances. Do not exchange money as this will give the IRS authority over you. After all, how much money do you need to run a home Bible study? You need a Bible, a voice and a place to sit. Your group can reach out to similar like-minded groups in order to criticize the government for its heinous positions on abortion and unwarranted wars of occupation. And if you are not a tax exempt organization, you may place blame where blame belongs as well as lobby for change. The churches of today need to crumble. Their pastors need to get a real job instead of pretending to serve the word of God. The authority of God, the Bible, needs to be taken back from the IRS, DHS, FEMA and money-serving pastors. If all Christians were to follow these suggestions, the Church, as we know it, would crumble. And the large-scale, money serving, government beholding churches need to fail. They need to be replaced by people who only have the goals of serving God. Please let me remind you of the admonition, “Thou shall have no other Gods before me”.

Some will criticize these solutions as being too simplistic. To that criticism, I would say “thank you” because I know from my life in academia, that Occam’s Razor works when it is applied properly

Pakistani polio strain threatens global campaign

PESHAWAR, Pakistan (AP) – Just a few weeks ago, 11-month-old Shaista was pulling herself up, giggling as she took her first wobbly steps with the helping hand of her teenage mother.

Then the polio virus struck and Shaista was no longer able to stand, her legs buckling beneath her weight. Today, her mother cries a lot and wonders what will become of her daughter in Pakistan’s male-dominated society, where a woman’s value is often measured by the quality of her husband.

“It is not a hardship just for the child, but for the whole family,” said the child’s 18-year-old mother, Samia Gul. “It is very difficult for a poor family like us. She will be dependent on us for the rest of her life.”

Shaista is one of five new polio cases to surface in Pakistan in just the first month of this year. Last year, Pakistan recorded 92 new cases, beating Nigeria and Afghanistan – the only other polio-endemic countries – by almost 2 to 1, the World Health Organization said.

Pakistan’s beleaguered battle to eradicate polio is threatening a global, multi-billion-dollar campaign to wipe out the disease worldwide. Because of Pakistan, the virus is spreading to countries that were previously polio-free, U.N officials say.

“The largest polio virus reservoir of the world,” is in Peshawar, in northwestern Pakistan near the border with Afghanistan, according to WHO.

Shaista and her parents share a two-room mud house with a couple of goats, a half-dozen squawking chickens and 10 other relatives in Pakistan’s western Khyber Pukhtunkhwa, or KPK, province, where Islamic militants often gun down health workers distributing vaccines and send suicide bombers to blow up police vehicles that protect them.

The latest casualty was a police constable killed Tuesday protecting a team of vaccination workers in northwest Pakistan. During a two-day vaccination campaign in Peshawar earlier this month, 5,000 police were deployed to protect health workers, most of whom earn barely $2 a day.

Fresh cases of polio – traced through genetic sequencing to the Pakistani strain of the disease – are showing up in countries that were previously polio-free, including Syria and Egypt, as well as in the Gaza Strip, said Ban Khalid Al-Dhayi, the spokeswoman for UNICEF in Pakistan. UNICEF is tasked with persuading a reluctant tribal population that lives along Pakistan’s border with Afghanistan – perhaps one of the most dangerous places on the planet – to vaccinate their children.

“A lot of countries that spent so much money and resources eradicating polio are worried,” Al-Dhayi said in an interview.

Pakistan’s neighbors are particularly vulnerable.

The same genetic sequencing found that 12 of the last 13 new polio cases in Afghanistan originated in Pakistan. Just last week, a 3-year-old was diagnosed with polio in the Afghan capital of Kabul, the first case since 2001.

Neighboring India, with a population of 1.2 billion, has been polio-free for three years. Fearful that Pakistan could wipe out that achievement, India is demanding that Pakistani visitors provide proof of vaccination.

It wasn’t so long ago – 1988 – that more than 350,000 people, most of them children under 5, were afflicted by polio in 125 countries where the disease was endemic. Today the disease is endemic in only three.

Last year, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, a multi-billion-dollar charity that funds polio vaccinations, vowed to wipe out the crippling disease by 2018.

Underlining the danger that Pakistan poses to achieving that goal, Al-Dhayi said there are 350,000 Pakistani children in just one small area of the country who have not been vaccinated – and it takes only one child left unvaccinated to reverse global gains against the disease.

The area – North and South Waziristan – is too dangerous for health workers to venture. Islamic militants, many with ties to al-Qaida, banned polio vaccinations there in 2012 to press their demand that the United States end its use of drones to target their hideouts.

Militants have also created suspicion among ultraconservative parents in Pakistan’s deeply religious northwest, saying the polio vaccine will make their children impotent. The vaccine, they claim, is a ploy by the West to limit the world’s Muslim population.

But health workers and militants alike agree the biggest setback was the highly publicized use of a Pakistani doctor and a vaccination ruse to ferret out al-Qaida chief Osama bin Laden in May 2011. Dr. Shakil Afridi is in jail in Pakistan for his role in the CIA operation that uncovered bin Laden’s hideout in the northwestern city of Abbottabad, 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the capital, Islamabad.

While Afridi never got DNA samples from the bin Laden family, his involvement in the covert operation that led to bin Laden’s death caused residents to look with suspicion on many vaccination programs. Devastating for the polio campaign were the images of Afridi standing beside a banner promoting polio vaccinations as television commentators told of his collusion with the CIA.

“We have deep sensitivity about the polio vaccination after the martyrdom of the great mujahed and leader of Muslims, Sheikh Osama bin Laden,” Taliban spokesman Ehsanullah Ehsan told The Associated Press. “We still have strong suspicions that the vaccination campaign could be used again and again to spy on Muslims and the mujahedeen.”

The ruse also turned the polio campaign violent. The first attack against a health worker occurred in June 2012, said Dr. Imtiaz Ali Shah, the KPK provincial government polio campaign coordinator. Since then, 40 people participating in vaccination campaigns have been killed in Pakistan and another 39 injured, according to UNICEF figures.

“Before 2011, we never saw health workers being attacked,” he said. “Now there are parts of Pakistan that are so volatile that vaccinators can’t go there.”

Mohammad Wasil’s 19-year-old son, Hilal, was killed by militants as he vaccinated children in rural northwest Pakistan. Sitting on a bed made of rope in his village, where women are rarely seen without the all-enveloping burqa, Wasil said his son volunteered because he loved children and wanted to earn money for his education.

Still, there have been small gains. In 2012, new polio cases in northwest Pakistan were found in 13 districts; a year later, that was reduced to six districts. But the virus is stubborn, and in the provincial capital of Peshawar, it keeps reappearing, forcing tens of thousands of children to be revaccinated because they may not have built up enough immunity.

“That makes everyone suspicious,” said Al-Dhayi, the UNICEF spokeswoman. “They wonder whether there was something wrong with the vaccine or with the new vaccination being administered.”

It has been impossible to eradicate the polio virus from Peshawar, says Shah, because people from the heavily infected tribal regions that are off limits for health workers arrive daily in the city, bringing with them a fresh outbreak.

The tribal regions “are producing so many cases and the (tribal people) travel regularly,” he said.

Al-Dhayi said some of the new polio cases showing up elsewhere in Pakistan have also been tracked to Peshawar and other areas of northwest KPK province.

In the meantime, UNICEF is trying to get Pakistan’s senior Islamic clergy to support the polio campaign, with some success, according to Al-Dhayi. Among those recruited is the so-called father of Afghanistan’s Taliban movement, Maulana Sami-ul-Haq.

“The effort is really intensive and proving positive,” she said, but the clock is ticking. “Pakistan is the worst of the three (polio-endemic countries) in terms of the number of cases and the complexity.”

Watchers 7 – Best Film and Peoples Choice Awards at the UFO Congress/EBE Film Festival!

Commentary & Analysis by L. A. Marzulli

As most of you know, we were shocked and amazed when Watchers 7 won both feature film awards at the UFO Congress / EBE Film Festival (near Phoenix) last Saturday.  Mary took a pict of me and LA last night, and I’m attaching it.  Watchers 7 won “Best UFO Film” as well as the “People’s Choice” awards. Shocking, and exciting.  There were close to 2,000 people at the conference. Richard Shaw – Director
Well it’s Monday and I flew back from Phoenix yesterday morning.  Honestly, I’ve been on to many planes lately and I’m exhausted.  However, mixed with the exhaustion is the thrill of our film, Watchers 7: Physical Evidence, winning big at the festival!  Richard and I want to thank everyone who came on the record with us to make Watchers 7, the success that it is!
Before I went to the festival I received an email from a friend who was questioning why I was going there in the first place.  The answer for me is simple.  In my opinion, these folks are the people Jesus would have sought out while he walked the earth.   Many of them have been abducted since they were little children and many exhibit what has become known as the Stockholm Syndrome.
Stockholm syndrome is named after the Norrmalmstorg robbery of Kreditbanken at Norrmalmstorg in Stockholm, Sweden, in which several bank employees were held hostage in a bank vault from August 23 to 28, 1973, while their captors negotiated with police. During this standoff, the victims became emotionally attached to their captors, rejected assistance from government officials at one point, and even defended their captors after they were freed from their six-day ordeal. The term was coined by the criminologist and psychiatrist Nils Bejerot as “Norrmalmstorgssyndromet” (Swedish) but it became known as “Stockholm Syndrome” abroad. It was originally defined by psychiatrist Frank Ochberg to aid the management of hostage situations.
In other words, these folks begin to emphasize with those who have abducted them.  For instance, I spoke with one woman who assured me that her little friend—as she calls him—would never hurt her.  Yet, this same little friend has been involved in this woman’s abduction since she was a little girl.
This conference is a collection of hard-core believers, and those who have had direct contact with the phenomena.  There is a man I have been talking to for almost a year now—we’ll call him Peter—who exhibits the classic Stockholm Syndrome characteristics.  Peter was abducted at an early age and is now, what people in the UFO community call a frequent flyer.  This is someone who is taken on a regular basis.  He identifies more with the “aliens” then with human beings at this point, and although his two boys are now being abducted he believes it is a good thing.  I have told him there is a way out from all of this and as of yet, he chooses not to take the offering.  This is what we are dealing with.  His situation is very complex and disturbing and he needs our prayers and love.
For those of you who read this blog you may remember the post a while back about our implant extraction and how the implant was being hidden until I prayed and a power greater than those who were manipulating the implant showed up.
Here’s the link to the post! http://wp.me/ph2yr-406
What these folks need to grasp is there is a power that is greater than the one that has deceived them.  There is a way out, a passage to freedom, a way to stop the abductions and have a normal life.
In closing todays post:  I believe there is a supernatural component to the UFO phenomena and the abductions that often go hand in hand.  I also believe there is hope for those who have been taken all their lives.  There is a power that is greater than the ones who take without asking and His name is Yashua/Jesus.  Unfortunately, many folks have been so hurt by the church that they identify Jesus with what they experienced in church!  Added to this is many pastors who are ill equipped to deal with the abduction phenomena and will dismiss it out of hand as a mental problem.
However, we have real evidence—as seen by the implant removal—that the phenomena is real and certainly not going away.  These people need to meet the real Jesus, the one who is able to stand in the gap and deliver them from the abductions, sexual experimentation, and the implanting of objects in their bodies, and bring them to a place of deliverance.  I state this not from a rote point of view but from one who has led people out of the UFO/abduction phenomena and watched Him—the one who is greater— set the captives free!

BMJ investigation exposes Big Pharma as conspirator in WHO pandemic flu scam

(NaturalNews) The World Health Organization (WHO) is the subject of a new investigation aimed at uncovering what really took place during the 2009 global influenza pandemic, which led to tens of millions of people being vaccinated for so-called “swine flu.” A joint investigation by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) and the Bureau of Investigative Journalism (BIJ) has already uncovered major conflicts of interest at WHO, whereby vaccine companies profited heavily from the pandemic and the mass hysteria that it generated.

The investigation is focused specifically on the emergency advisory committee that was assigned to make official recommendations to WHO about how to plan for the pandemic, which was fraught with controversy from the start. Comprising this advisory panel were individuals highly connected to pharmaceutical companies, say BMJ and BIJ, many of whom had a vested financial interest in promoting antiviral drugs and influenza vaccines, which have been linked to causing narcolepsy and other disorders.

Big Pharma reportedly held a $4 billion stake in developing the swine flu vaccines that WHO would later push on the public through propaganda and fear. And the reason that WHO so readily accepted these drugs as viable responses to the pandemic is because its key advisors, many of whom are still unknown because they were intentionally kept secret, worked on behalf of the vaccine industry to see these drugs thrust into the limelight of the pandemic-planning process.

“Key scientists advising the World Health Organization on planning for an influenza pandemic had done paid work for pharmaceutical firms that stood to gain from the guidance they were preparing,” reads a report on the joint investigation. “These conflicts of interest have never been publicly disclosed by WHO, and WHO has dismissed inquiries into its handling of the A/H1N1 pandemic as ‘conspiracy theories.'”

Flu pandemic hysteria led to governments purchasing huge stockpiles of drugs, vaccines that were never used

The ultimate goal, of course, was to convince as many governments around the world as possible to purchase large stockpiles of antiviral drugs like oseltamivir (Tamiflu) and zanamivir (Relenza), and vaccines like Pandemrix, to generate massive profits. Some of these drugs had never even been proven to work, let alone proven safe, and yet they were widely distributed as the emergency “cure” for H1N1.

Both oseltamivir and zanamivir have been around since the late 1990s, but the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and other regulators really had to stretch the flimsy data that they received on the two drugs from their respective manufacturers in order to approve them. The FDA, it turns out, initially opposed recommending zanamivir, manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline, during the pandemic, because the data on its safety and efficacy was severely lacking — the agency later changed it’s mind.

“After Dr [Michael] Elashoff’s review (he had access to individual patient data and summary study reports) the FDA’s advisory committee voted by 13 to 4 not to approve zanamivir on the grounds that it was no more effective than placebo when the patients were on other drugs such as paracetamol,” adds the report. “Dr Elashoff’s view was that zanamivir was no better than placebo — and it had side effects.”

The pandemic, as most people now know, ultimately turned out to be a complete flop. Many individuals ended up rejecting both the drugs and the vaccines that were being pushed on them by the government, which means that these taxpayer-purchased drugs and vaccines are now sitting unused and on the verge of expiration in warehouses all across the globe.

EPA Approves GMO Bt Toxin Residues in Your Food

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recently released a final rule  which creates an exemption for Monsanto. It allows a higher level of residue tolerance in GMO foods and Bt toxins.This particular exemption allows residues of the bacterium Bacillus thuringiensis, commonly known as Bt in genetically modified food like soy, but similar exemptions have already been ruled for cotton and corn. A final rule, they say. Not if enough of us stand up to the infestation of our government agencies by biotech companies.

Bt toxins have been used in agri-business for decades. I refuse to call it agriculture, because that is the cultivation of healthy food for people throughout the world. This is something else, entirely. Bt toxins have been linked to multiple, serious diseases in independent scientific studies, and one of the latest points out that it even targets human embryo cells, killing them upon contact.

Along with being reproductively toxic, Bt has also been linked to leukemia in a study published by the Journal of Hematology and Thromboembolic Diseases, and was the background for millions of farmer suicides in India. It is not safe, though the EPA and FDA keep telling us so. Does anyone listen to these morons anymore, anyhow? They’ve completely discredited themselves, and everyone knows that Monsanto has deep tentacles in these agencies.

The following is taken from the Edmonds Institute, to show just how inundated these agencies are with Monsanto, Genetech, and other biotech interests:

  • David W. Beier . . . The former head of Government Affairs for Genetech, Inc. was the chief domestic policy advisor for Al Gore.
  • Linda J. Fisher . . . The former Assistant Administrator of the US EPA’s Office of Pollution Prevention, Pesticides, and Toxic Substances is now Vice President of Government and Public Affairs for Monsanto Corp.
  • Michael A. Friedman, M.D. . . The former acting commissioner of the US FDA Department of Health and Human Services is now senior VP for clinical affairs at G. D. Searle & Co., a pharmaceutical division of Monsanto Corp.
  • L. Val Giddings . . . The former biotechnology regulator (biosafety) negotiator for the US Dept. of Agricultural is also now VP for the Food and Agriculture of the Biotechnology Industry Organization (BIO)

The list goes on and on, and I suggest you peruse it more closely if you want to see just who is in bed with biotech. (Just check out the links above).

Bt toxins, called the Cry1F protein, were genetically insinuated into every cell of GMO plants to protect them from insects like the corn borer and cotton bollworm. We and our livestock ingest these Cry1F proteins, and it isn’t good, to say the least.

Just what did the EPA base their determination upon, besides fat checks from biotechs? They say,“there is a reasonable certainty that no harm will result from aggregate exposure to the pesticide chemical residue, including all anticipated dietary exposures and all other exposures for which there is reliable information.” They include exposure to Bt toxins through drinking water.

The docket for this action, identified by docket identification (ID) number EPA–HQ–OPP–2013–0704, is available at http://www.regulations.govAny objections to the final rule and/or a request for a hearing must be filed by April 14.

If we stand together we can undo this slaughter of the natural world and humankind. Please call, write, and pester your politicians, as well as US EPA and US FDA officials to tell them you won’t stand for it.

FEDS WANT TO TRACK YOUR DNA LIKE A LICENSE PLATE – Seek ‘biosignature’ spying ability to ‘identify, locate specific individuals’

The federal government doesn’t just want the ability to track down your car; it wants to be able to track down your body as well.

Just as details are emerging about a controversial, nationwide vehicle-surveillance database, WND has learned the federal government is planning an even more invasive spy program using “physiological signatures” to track down individuals.

The goal of this research is to detect – as well as analyze and categorize – unique traits the government can exploit to “identify, locate and track specific individuals or groups of people.”

According to the program’s statement of objectives, “The scope of human-centered [intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance, or ISR] research spans the complete range of human performance starting at the individual molecular, cellular, genomic level.”

Documents WND located through routine database research reveal the ability to follow people by detecting “certain characteristics of operational interest” is designed for U.S. military and intelligence-gathering superiority.

It remains unknown when such capabilities might transition to the realm of domestic counterterrorism or law enforcement operations; however, the feds – through the Air Force Research Lab, or AFRL – are recruiting private-sector assistance in order to make this “biosignature” spying a reality.

Existing ISR systems are “ideal for identifying and tracking entities such as aircraft and vehicles, but are less capable of identifying and tracking the human,” the lab says in a planning document known as a Broad Agency Announcement, or BAA.

The Human-Centered ISR Leveraged Science & Technology Program will seek to develop, with outside help, technologies that the government can use “to identify, locate and track humans of interest within the operational environment,” according to solicitation No. BAA-HPW-RHX-2014-0001.

Research specific to fusing and analyzing sensor data has undergone consistent growth, but such efforts have been “system-centric” and fail to “adequately address the human element.”

This new research scheme seeks to strengthen the ability of intelligence analysts by placing the human component at the forefront of their efforts.

AFRL’s research could have implications for a variety of domains, such as air, space and cyberspace, it says. The program’s outcome also will broadly apply to other U.S. Department of Defense organizations and the intelligence community.

A second component of the AFRL initiative is the Human Trust and Interaction Program, which will conduct research into human-to-human and human-to-machine interactions.

This program segment entails several sub-areas, including Trust and Suspicion, which will focus on “the recognition of suspicious activities in the cyberspace realm.”

This segment will examine open-source data such as social media. It also will continue to leverage “more traditional intelligence sources.”

AFRL says it anticipates awarding three or four initial contracts for the overall initiative, which has an estimated program value of about $50 million.

The goal of this and other AFLR programs typically start out as largely theoretical, similar to the approach taken by the more widely known Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, or DARPA, which created ARPANET, the defense-system predecessor to the Internet.

The Department of Homeland Security, on the other hand, merely has to solicit bids from industry for a National License Plate Recognition, or NLPR, database system.

While DHS is soliciting this service specifically for Immigration and Customs Enforcement, or ICE, functions, the breadth of this NLPR service encompasses the gathering of transportation-movement data from major metropolitan areas nationwide.

This database, which would be fed with information gleaned from multiple sources, would “track vehicle license plate numbers that pass through cameras or are voluntarily entered into the system,” according to the program solicitation.

The vehicle tracking-data then would be “uploaded to share with law enforcement.”

The database will be compatible with smart phone technology, enabling law enforcement offices to download thousands of listings – as well as close-up photos – of vehicle license plates.

Once DHS secures this service, the contractor must retain and make available data from previous months, as well as update the system with “new and unique” data monthly.

DHS anticipates awarding a one-year contract with four one-year options by May 14. It did not disclose the estimated cost.

The United States of Decline – America unravels at an increasingly dizzying pace.

America is unraveling at a stunning speed and to a staggering degree. This decline is breathtaking, and the prognosis is dim.

For starters, Obama now rules by decree. Reportedly for the 27th time, he has changed the rules of Obamacare singlehandedly, with neither congressional approval nor even ceremonial resolutions to limit his actions. Obama needs no such frivolities.

“That’s the good thing about being president,” Obama joked on February 10. “I can do whatever I want.” In an especially bitter irony, Obama uttered these despicable words while guiding French president François Hollande through Monticello, the home of Thomas Jefferson — a key architect of America’s foundation of limited government.

That very day, Obama decreed that the Obamacare mandate for employers with 50 to 99 workers would be postponed until 2016 (beyond an earlier extension to 2015), well past the November 2014 midterm elections. This eases the pressure on Democrats, whose campaigns would suffer if voters saw their company health plans canceled due to Obamacare’s unnecessary, expensive, mandatory benefits — e.g. maternity coverage for men.

So, by fiat, Obama has postponed the employer mandate. When Senator Ted Cruz (R., Texas) effectively tried to do this through legislation last fall, Democrats virtually lassoed and branded him.

Also by decree last week, Obama decided unilaterally to soften political-asylum rules. Refugees and other immigrants who provide terrorists “limited material support” now can come to America. So what if someone merely clothed and fed Mohamed Atta or Khalid Sheikh Mohammed? After all, garments and meals don’t blow up. Welcome to America, Mustafa!

Meanwhile, the Justice Department is working hard to revoke the asylum of and deport the Romeikes. This evangelical-Christian family was granted refuge in America to escape prosecution for homeschooling their children, which German law forbids.

So, Obama believes, those who are only somewhat helpful to deadly, anti-U.S. terrorists may become Americans, while religiously oppressed homeschoolers who face prison should get the hell out.

The transparent electoral motive that fuels so many of Obama’s executive orders seems unprecedented. The tone is also brand new. Obama’s predecessors have signed executive orders and, more or less, left it at that. But Obama pounds his chest as he does so. As he told Congress at last month’s State of the Union address: “America does not stand still — and neither will I. So wherever and whenever I can take steps without legislation to expand opportunity for more American families, that’s what I’m going to do.”

While appalled Republicans sat on their hands, Democrats stood up and shouted like equatorial, rubber-stamp parliamentarians: “Hooray! We are irrelevant!”

Chilling.

Meanwhile, as the American Enterprise Institute’s Marc Thiessen wrote in the February 10 Washington Post, new Congressional Budget Office figures show that Obamacare will reduce U.S. incomes by $70 billion annually between 2017 and 2024. The CBO also estimated that by 2021, Obamacare’s disincentives to hire and incentives not to work would slash labor hours by the equivalent of 2.3 million jobs.

Rather than dispute these figures, key Democrats embraced them.

“We want people to have the freedom to be a writer, to be a photographer, to make music, to paint,” said House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California. She added that “people would no longer be job-locked by their [health] policies, but have the freedom to follow their passion.”

So, rather than expand economic growth and jobs, Democrats applaud as Americans stop working — to do watercolors, draft poetry, and take naps — while exhausted taxpayers foot the bill.

Clearly unafraid of Obama, Iranian warships for the first time are steaming toward America’s Atlantic maritime borders. Iranian Revolutionary Guards Corps navy commander Ali Fadayi said, “The Americans can sense by all means how their warships will be sunk with 5,000 crews and forces in combat against Iran and how they should find its hulk in the depths of the sea.” Tehran last week also aired fantasy videos of drones blasting a U.S. warship and bombing Tel Aviv. This is how Iran behaves while it negotiates with U.S. diplomats over “peaceful” uranium enrichment?

Nearby, embattled Syrians flee the city of Homs while they and their United Nations protectors dodge incoming mortar shells. This sorry spectacle has exposed Obama’s Syrian policy as a miserable flop. So does the fact that Syrian president Bashar Assad has handed over only 4 percent of the chemical weapons that his deal last September with Obama and Vladimir Putin was supposed to neutralize. According to GOP senators John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina, Secretary of State John Kerry privately conceded to them that Obama’s approach in Syria has failed.

America liberated Afghanistan from a regime that hosted al-Qaeda, banned kites and recorded music, and built a bridge to the seventh century. And what thanks does the U.S. get? Over American objections, Afghan president Hamid Karzai last week released 65 Taliban warriors from Bagram prison, where they were being held on suspicion of killing American troops, murdering Afghan civilians, deploying roadside bombs, and otherwise perpetrating mayhem. When U.S. officials complained that these killers could return to the fight — as have other Taliban thugs, once freed — Karzai exploded: “If the Afghan judicial authorities decide to release a prisoner, it is of no concern to the U.S. I hope that the U.S. will stop harassing Afghanistan’s procedures and judicial authority, and I hope the U.S. will now begin to respect Afghan sovereignty.”

For these and many other reasons, Democrats are fleeing Obama.

“I don’t care to have him campaign for me,” said Senator Mark Begich (D., Alaska).

A reelection ad for Representative Joe Garcia (D., Fla.) boasts that “he voted to let you keep your existing health plan, and he took the White House to task for the disastrous healthcare website.”

“He [Obama] is hurting the Democratic brand right now,” veteran Democratic campaign strategist Joe Trippi told Fox News Channel’s Megyn Kelly on February 12. “The Obamacare snafus, his approval rating is declining, and his credibility problems all drag the Democratic brand down.”

Rather than resist an increasingly weak — yet ever more assertive — Obama, GOP congressional leaders hand him whatever he wants. Thus, House speaker John Boehner and Senate GOP chief Mitch McConnell of Kentucky pushed through a $1.012 trillion budget with, at best, minuscule and illusory spending cuts. A $956 billion farm bill includes $3 million to promote Christmas trees (who on Earth would buy them without federal assistance?), $100 million for maple-syrup market research, and $170 million for catfish protectionism. Boehner and McConnell sent Obama this gift-wrapped monstrosity, which was $56 billion higher than Obamacare’s original price tag. And in exchange, Obama gave them . . . zippo!

On February 12, Boehner and McConnell helped send Obama a measure to suspend the debt limit until March 15, 2015. (The debt ceiling was not raised from $17.2 trillion to a higher level; it simply was removed. The gas pedal remains in Obama’s Little Red Cor-debt, but the brakes are gone.) This passed the GOP House with Boehner and only 27 Republicans voting yes. The other 194 votes were from Democrats. When McConnell surrendered on cloture, 11 other Republican senators helped Democrats advance their dirty work. The debt ceiling is now a debt sunroof.

And what did Washington’s top two Republicans get for giving Obama 13 months to shop till America drops? Nothing! No repeal of Obamacare’s $47 billion bailout of health insurers. No approval of the Keystone XL Pipeline. No termination of the cure-killing medical-device tax. No votes on these matters, which would have forced Democrats to choose. This could have helped Republican candidates in November.

Steely resolve could stymie the unpopular and untrustworthy Obama. Sadly, Boehner, McConnell, and other GOP leaders are as firm as foil.

“Republicans are giving up because they know that winning is impossible when their leaders are determined to lose,” the Senate Conservatives Fund stated. “These leaders have telegraphed weakness to the Democrats and sabotaged conservative efforts so many times that Republicans now have no leverage.” The group concluded: “John Boehner must be replaced as Speaker of the House. . . . Unless we install a new leader who will actually go on offense, Democrats will never fear us and we will never have any leverage.”

Also, Earth’s sole superpower is sagging where it should be No. 1. America has slouched to No. 12 on the 2014 Heritage Foundation/Wall Street Journal Index of Economic Freedom.

“Now considered only a ‘mostly free’ economy, the U.S. has earned the dubious distinction of having recorded one of the longest sustained declines in economic freedom, second only to Argentina, of any country in the [20-year] history of theIndex,” the report states. “The U.S. is the only country to have recorded a loss of economic freedom each of the past seven years.”

Regarding graft, America has stayed stable in Transparency International’s Corruption Perceptions Index. Unfortunately, and as recently as 2013, the U.S. has remained Earth’s 19th most honest country.

Thanks, in part, to Team Obama’s surveillance of journalists from Fox News Channel and the Associated Press, America tumbled 13 spots down Reporters Without Borders’ 2014 World Press Freedom Index. The U.S. dropped this year from No. 33 to No. 46. Hence, 45 nations now have freer journalists than does America. RWB calls America “satisfactory” rather than the top-rated “good.” As the report states: “Amid an all-out hunt for leaks and sources, 2013 will also be the year of the Associated Press scandal, which came to light when the Department of Justice acknowledged that it had seized the news agency’s phone records.”

America is a total mess.

The Land of the Free is governed by an out-of-control egomaniac, neither bolstered by managerial competence nor hindered by the legislature’s institutional prerogatives. In the Home of the Brave, half of Congress cheers Obama’s unconstitutional behavior, while the other half grumbles and then meekly carpet-bombs his path with white flags.

The American people have been betrayed — both by Obama and the Democrats, whose lust for control intensifies daily, and by Republican leaders in Washington, whose cowardice and defeatism have turned their guts and spines into tapioca.

America, as Paul Simon sings, is slip-slidin’ away. And the worst part hasn’t happened yet.

Secession movement in New York pushes for Big Apple to split from Upstate

When Frank Sinatra sang “New York, New York,” he may have been on to something.

A movement is afoot to split New York into two regions — upstate and downstate — to acknowledge the gaping philosophical differences and improve representation.

“I’ve lived in New York all my life, and upstate and downstate have two different philosophies of life,” said John Bergener, an Albany County resident and organizer of the two New Yorks effort. “And it seems like they’re always in conflict.”

Campaigns for “secession” or a 51st state have been on the rise since the 2012 presidential election — see California, Colorado and Maryland — but the New York movement has a twist.

Instead of splitting New York into two distinct states, advocates want one state controlled by two autonomous regional governments.

The state would retain a “token” presence, funded by the 3 percent sales tax, and would remain united for federal purposes such as the Electoral College and congressional seats. But the power on all state matters would be transferred to the regions.

The downstate region would be called New York and include the counties of Bronx, Kings, New York, Queens, Richmond, Nassau, Rockland, Suffolk and Westchester — basically New York City and its neighboring counties, including Long Island.

The upstate region tentatively would be named New Amsterdam — after the 17th-century Dutch settlement on Manhattan Island that eventually became New York City — and would comprise the state’s remaining 53 counties, including the state capital of Albany.

Upstate New York is less prosperous and populous than the Big Apple region. About 7 million of the state’s 19 million residents would be in the proposed New Amsterdam.

The plan is the brainchild of the Upstate Conservative Coalition, a tea party-style group that last month launched a Facebook page called Divide NYS into New Amsterdam & New York, and a website, NewAmsterdamNY.org.

Mr. Bergener said the two-regions proposal would be much easier than splitting New York into two states, which would require an act of Congress. The two-regions plan could be implemented by votes of thestate legislature in two sessions, he said.

The idea also could be adopted in a constitutional convention. New Yorkers vote every 20 years on whether to hold a state constitutional convention, and the next vote is slated for November 2017.

This isn’t the first time New Yorkers have advocated a division along upstate-downstate lines.

“If you search ‘divide New York state’ on Google, you’ll find dozens of proposals,” said Mr. Bergener. “None has ever come to fruition. The legislature never acts on it because they know Congress won’t act on it. With this one, we feel like we’ve found a loophole.”

Tension is growing between the two regions over a pair of high-profile policy issues: hydraulic fracturing and pre-kindergarten education.

Many upstaters are fuming over the recent refusal by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, to lift a 6-year-old de facto moratorium on hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas. The industry is booming in neighboring Pennsylvania but been stunted in an upstate region, which is struggling from the loss of manufacturing jobs.

The Cuomo administration is waiting until next year for the results of a state health study, but Mr. Bergener said those in the Southern Tier and other areas that would benefit from oil and gas drilling suspect a political motivation.

“The theory is that our current governor doesn’t want upstate to grow because then you’d get more Republicans,” Mr. Bergener said.

Upstate conservatives also were steamed over the governor’s Jan. 17 declaration that pro-lifers “have no place in the state of New York.”

Meanwhile, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio’s proposal for a tax increase on wealthy residents to pay for universal pre-kindergarten in the five boroughs has been criticized by state officials, including Mr. Cuomo, who say it would widen the gap between upstate and downstate.

“I know the ‘tale of two cities.’ The answer to the tale of two cities is not to create two states,” Mr. Cuomo said in a WNYC radio interview Friday.

Of course, that’s where he and members of the two-regions coalition disagree.

“It’s an unusual idea,” said Mr. Bergener. “I’ve searched and I can’t find anyone else who’s tried this before. So we’re the first.”

Pennsylvania ‘Craigslist killer’ says she slayed dozens more across U.S. as part of satanic cult: report

Miranda Barbour, who along with her husband is facing the death penalty for killing a 42-year-old man she met on Craigslist, claimed in a jailhouse interview that she has killed at least 22 other people as a part of her involvement with a satanic cult.

A Pennsylvania newlywed accused of meeting a man on Craigslist and then stabbing him to death with her husband’s help said she killed more than 20 more people as part of her involvement in a bloodthirsty satanic cult.

“When I hit 22, I stopped counting,” 19-year-old Miranda Barbour told the Sunbury, Pa., Daily Item newspaper in a chilling jailhouse interview Friday.

“I can pinpoint on a map where you can find them,” she boasted. “I remember everything. It is like watching a movie.”

Barbour’s claims of serial killer infamy came as she and her husband, Elytte, 22, are facing the death penalty for stabbing Troy LaFerrara to death on Nov. 11 in what investigators called a “thrill kill” to mark the couple’s three-week wedding anniversary.

Miranda lured the lonely 42-year-old with a Craigslist ad offering “companionship,” and the two met in the parking lot of a shopping mall before driving to a spot in Sunbury, authorities said.

Elytte Barbour hid beneath a blanket in the Honda CRV’s backseat and, after receiving a signal from his wife, jumped up and wrapped a cord around the LaFerrara’s neck, prosecutors said.

Miranda then stabbed him 20 times. LeFerrara’s body was found in an alley the next day.

Initially, Barbour told police she stabbed the passenger because he groped her and tried to choke her.

 But on Friday, she admitted to the killing, claiming that LaFerrara “said the wrong things and then things got out of control.”

“I can tell you he was not supposed to be stabbed,” Barbour told the Daily Item. “My husband was just supposed to strangle him.”

Speaking through a jailhouse phone, Barbour told the newspaper LaFerrara was just the latest victim in a multistate killing spree that began at 13 when she joined a satanic cult in Alaska.

The cult’s leader let her tag along on a hit on someone who owed him money, she said.

The unnamed leader shot the man and then handed her the gun to finish him off, she claimed.

“I couldn’t do it, so he came behind me and he took his hands and put them on top of mine and we pulled the trigger,” Barbour said.

“And then from there I just continued to kill.”

The deranged young mom, who has a daughter from a past lover, claimed to have bodies stashed in California, North Carolina and Texas, as well as Alaska, where most of the murders took place.

Her victims, she told the Daily Item, “did bad things and didn’t deserve to be here anymore.”

“I would lure these people in. I studied them. I learned them and even became their friend,” she said.

On Saturday, Sunbury police said they were aware of Barbour’s claims and were looking into them with help from investigators in other states and the FBI.

So far, there were no reports of any evidence linking Barbour or her husband to any other killings.

Barbour said she had no regrets about killing LaFerrara — or any of the other alleged victims.

“If I were to be released, I would do this again,” she told the newspaper.
