The Infrastructure Is Scary Bad

Not read into the Humboldt County
Public realm

By Linda Cassara

Since Bass has been Chair of the BOD -a g a I n- there’s no telling when public forum is. AS IN, no fixed time on the Agenda. I wasn’t able to get to Eureka until just before 11:00. The County Inc’s BOD’s 9:00 a.m. meeting was over. Doors locked. Gone. Posted outside the entrance doors of 825 Fifth Street is a copy of the Agenda. Public Hearing was randomly listed as item D.

The Infrastructure is scary bad, and the forests are dying. Meanwhile . . . the local owned media jargon entertains with a spin about Vehicle Abatement. What would happen if KMUD’s Bonnie Blackberry interviewed fact instead of fiction?

February 28th – a gathering of manufactured chaos

What should be on all of our minds, and isn’t, is; why are pretend supervisors consolidating next week with a horde of others of like mind? What would Humboldt Inc’s status quo have, to bring to the table? What story can they share about adding value to society? Rubbing elbows with the likes of Kern County’s police brutality mind set, or Butte County’ dinge, can only lead to disaster for the peasants –you and me. Will they discuss Barry Manilow and list their ‘traveling at county expense’ totals for this Luciferian show of cartoons in a cartoon graveyard?

When we are confronted with the fact of willful failure to repair and maintain roads, #1 on their job description list, there isn’t any other place to go. The performance part of the contract isn’t being fulfilled. “F” on your report card is Not something you take to share with others who also create problems and pretend to solve them with more of the same thinking that created the problems in the first place. There’s no bragging or self-aggrandizement to hang onto. They can’t perform their main duty. We have no use for losers in office. There is no logical reason for public servant impostors to go celebrate their criminal parasitic behavior. And now we’re saddled with Access Humboldt and a Director to boot.   Broadcast in Access Humboldt is spelled: FDA, FBI, Sheriff, Police, and DHS wearing matching combat uniforms, bayonets in hand and helmets with face masks completes the scene.

Middle finger salute to Billy Honsal berthing Access Humboldt!   At the Feb. 7 BOD’s meeting, Honsal reiterated a southern Humboldt suicide scene from about a year ago. Keep in mind that the million-a-month ½% countywide Tax fraud had been in effect 10 months. Honsal’s re-telling of why HazMat showed up, and then Fish & Game, is not to my recollection.   It was, at the time after all, propaganda to prepare the common grower population for more foreign invasion. Right after the “All corporate agents show-up for a divvy of the pie” suicide episode, last spring and summer brought us stories of told and untold raids – inclusive of HazMat, Fish and Game and some sort of Water Resource Board gurus. The corporate agencies represented at mostly nobody-home-private-property-trespass thefts, grew to an unbelievable number and climaxed with a fake raid report in Miranda that included “national” Legal enforcement. The only times we saw Downey performing was for a photo op with camouflage–clad militants under his command, out in a field somewhere, and a Sheriff ‘talk-along’ visit in Garberville just after a man was beat to death on the town square – which was 16 months into the million-a-month ½% Tax fraud. How many ‘Lifers’ in the local jail is Downey bequeathing to us?

Do you suppose the disgraceful conformists of Humboldt Inc. will have on hand a certified copy of their medical certificates next Tuesday? –You know, some sort of evidence for their claim to use the word “medical” in a self-ordained health Ordinance. And some proof that the shipped 1,100 pounds – pounds were medicinal. That’s pounds. Not milligrams contained, or total in ounce containers, or maybe cartons, as “medical” shipment quantities are referred to in modern times, but pounds! Eleven hundred pounds of “medical” herb exited Humboldt County bearing a “Humboldt” stamp. The question remains – what part, or parts, of the herb was shipped for commercial sale -in the medicinal world? Shipped to? For further processing? Last time I looked medicinal products specifically, are not taxable.

We have to take from nature as nature provides.   This isn’t up for debate. Remember hothouse tomatoes? They bore sticker stamps too. I call it plastic flower idolatry.

The Modern Renaissance

“Laws restricting nonviolent activity are acts of aggression.”  

J.G. Vibes writes; If something is frowned upon or taboo, you can rest assured that there is someone out there who thinks that it should be illegal. All too often those people are very quick to suggest that the proper solution to this problem is to throw that person in a cage. That may sound kind of harsh, but that is exactly what you are advocating when you claim that something should be illegal.

Does this really seem like a proper one-size-fits-all solution for our social problems, especially those where there is no violence, theft or fraud involved?   There is no dispute that violence, theft or fraud should be unlawful because no one wants to get hurt, or robbed, or murdered.

However, when you start getting into nonviolent action, where there has been no theft, is bringing aggression upon one or more of the people in the form of kidnap and imprisonment really going to make anyone safer? Furthermore, is this an ethical, humane, or civilized way of treating nonviolent people?

Using imprisonment as a blanket solution for anything that may come along is a totally irresponsible and lazy way to do things. In all honesty, this approach ensures that the problem will never be solved, because it prevents any real solutions from being developed and only works to make a non-complicated social issue complicated.

There are also many side effects of these policies which actually pose a serious threat to the health and safety of our entire population. Many times these side effects are referred to as “unintended” consequences, but all of the outcomes of these actions are totally planned and expected.

When those with authority create Legalese that ban nonviolent actions and inanimate objects, they understand the implications of what they are doing, but they put those policies into effect anyway because they have a great deal to gain in this process. This is why they are so reluctant to change, even in the face of obvious failure and public outcry. The social problems that are created by prohibition give the establishment a lot of busy jobs and a constant excuse to violate the rights and privacy of those within its grasp. This situation is just one of many preventable disasters that the State foments and allows to continue as a means of justifying its own existence.

It’s clear that an Agenda is operating here. However, it has nothing to do with the people or land jurisdiction. If you intend to carry on in your world of fiction smoke & mirrors show, at the very least stop coercing the people seated here to join you in pledging allegiance to a 4-colored flag that says Admiralty Law of the Sea Merchant –guilty until proven innocent –as if we’re out on the sea of commerce. Tell the people that no rules apply to you and you are not responsible for any of your actions. Tell them that the Rules of Order, the Rules of Grammar, the Generally Accepted Accounting Principles, and the Supreme Law of the Land have no meaning whatsoever to you – and why?

Why isn’t fact, truth and law any part of these public meetings?

Why should anyone with seven or more functioning brain cells not view this BOD’s actions as Acts of war offense to the sovereign? How can any of you just slide on in here and acknowledge a despicable section on Your Agenda called “Consent Calendar,” containing as many as 28 items, when each and every one begs for debate? No wonder mold and stagnation have taken over, there’s no ‘words-on-paper’ age or term limits.

You were never delegated authority to Invest the People’s Public Treasury. Yet, last week, without any conscious thought whatsoever, impersonating public servants – YOU delegated authority you did not have, to John Bartholomew the Tax Collector, to be fully responsible for investing money that he did not earn, that is not his or yours or any corporate governmental service employees’.   Investing the people’s treasury monies is not what a government of the people, for the people, and by the people, does.

Nothing is read into the public records, none of the people are involved, and yet somehow it’s okay to spend money you didn’t earn without the consent of the governed?   The whimsical notion of providing ‘health’ or ‘safety’ is stating a position without evidence for the claim. You pretend to protect the people, but in fact you are the major long-term threat to the people. Your fanatic fixation on what you believe to be mental illness was proved a long time ago to be someone that doesn’t accept their own tragedy. The local media is full-up on parroting whatever [imagined] External Authority says . . . the mental illness control tactic gets projected onto the people 24/7. Federal HHS is all over your Agendas – either more shrinks, shrink nurses and shrink staff are hired or getting a raise, or there’s a $300,000 paper pending with Dell & Microsoft that begins with HHS and oozes into Consolidation w/ the Presumed County Depts. to store email–“out there.” Another State slash Federal bribe is a surplus of 22 vehicles for the shrink dept., and EXTRA HOURS presented thru CAO, but upon closer look –that too is for HHS. When million$ are flushed on the federal HHS shrink dept., that translates into -the status quo ‘s BODs have all been bribed and surrendered state’s rights. The State of California (not California State), as a whole, has Consolidated/embedded with U.S. Inc., surrendering state’s rights to the tune of 45.8%. But! “the County” of Humboldt (not Humboldt County) has surrendered 64%.

This is about as far as I got, however I left both pages. Continuing on:

HHS has had a patent on cannabinoids since 2003. Yet HHS pumps man-made toxic solutions of opiates into the population under a guise of Another Humboldt “pilot program” training, and flushing $3.5 million on outside consultants for HHS “staff” –leaves no doubt as to why so many people can’t wake up. Abolish HHS and DEA – get U.S. Inc. out of Humboldt – Now!

With the exception of resolutions for acknowledgment, there isn’t one item on last week’s Agenda that doesn’t have a foundation of fraud and the stench of fascism. “Once a fraud. Always a fraud.” Just like Your Measure Z, Your MM Ordinance of semantic deceit aimed at a particular class of people, with intent to destroy a culture; smells to the high heaven. So divide and conquer. Pit those who bent over and grabbed their ankles against those who reserve their right to not contract with thugs.

Now that we know that farming 10,000 acres of hemp will provide as much paper, building materials, and pulp as 41,000 acres of forest, there’s no logic in logging. STOP LOGGING! PLANT HEMP!

When the word Ordinance is used by THE COUNTY’S 18 (EIGHTEEN) paid commies, that is supposed to somehow control private property -via 17 zones!- written in aggressive Old World master slave Fiction of statutory democracy, against the growers . . . against the farmers . . . You want to eliminate the only real part of the equation!! Its past time to rid ourselves of the criminal parasites trespassing on American soil; the so-titled British Accreditation Registry cult. Americans have endured their Satanic presence for 150 years -that has brought us to 2.4 million caged Americans. Over half a million are caged for possession [of plant parts -sick]. Every 25 seconds, someone in America is caged for possession – more than 1.25 million a year.

ROBERT F. KENNEDY JR: CDC AN “EDIFICE OF FRAUD”

By Jon Rappoport
January 16, 2017

Robert Kennedy, Jr. “All the things that I do are bent on forcing this [vaccine] debate out into the open—because once the science is in the open, the CDC’s position is so fragile, it’s an edifice of fraud, fraud stacked upon fraud, so high and so wobbly, that even a slight breeze of public scrutiny will topple it.”

Kennedy states that President Trump has appointed him to head up a task force investigating vaccine safety. The above quote indicates Kennedy, would, if given the green light, probe much more than the use of mercury in vaccines—his main topic of interest thus far.

This would be a very good thing. The CDC is most certainly an edifice of fraud. It has concealed many of its crimes over the years.

If he hasn’t already, Kennedy should make contact with an anonymous group of scientists at the CDC who call themselves Spider. They have written a letter to the CDC chief of staff accusing the agency of widespread “unethical practices…influenced and shaped by outside parties…[that] threaten to undermine our credibility and reputation as a trusted leader in public health.”

In my recent open letter to Spider, I presented three shocking areas of fraud at the CDC that they should expose:

Swine Flu, a dud and phony “epidemic,” presented as a dire global threat requiring vaccination;

A structural conflict of interest, in which the CDC buys billions of dollars of vaccines and, at the same time, carries out many studies assessing vaccine safety—with this much money on the line, the Agency would never, under any circumstances, admit vaccines are dangerous;

A massive overestimation of annual flu deaths in the US, in order to push the necessity of the flu vaccine.

In this second memo, I present two more shocking areas which should receive the immediate attention of the dissident Spider scientists at the CDC, and Mr. Kennedy:

ONE: THE CASE OF JULIE GERBERDING.

On August 27, 2014, CDC scientist William Thompson came out of the shadows and revealed that he had participated in a major scientific fraud:

Ten years earlier, he and his co-authors had published a study claiming there was no MMR-vaccine connection to autism. They had omitted vital data which contradicted that finding.

The MMR vaccine was increasing the risk of autism. Thompson knew it. So did his co-authors. They buried that chilling fact.

Before their fake study was published, Thompson wrote to the head of the CDC, Julie Gerberding, informing her that, at an upcoming conference, he would be “presenting the summary of our results from the Metropolitan Atlanta Autism Case-Control Study [and]…I will have to present several problematic results relating to statistical associations between the receipt of MMR vaccine and autism.”

In other words, Thompson was ready to blow the whistle on the MMR vaccine-autism connection. He received no reply from CDC Director Gerberding, and his presentation at the conference was canceled.

Fast forward: in 2009, Gerberding left the CDC.

She eventually went to work as the president of the vaccine division at Merck.

Merck. Manufactures. The. MMR. Vaccine.

Get it?

TWO: OVERWHELMINGLY, FLU IS NOT FLU. THEREFORE, EVEN PEOPLE WHO BELIEVE IN THE IMPORTANCE OF THE FLU VACCINE ARE BEING DECEIVED.

Peter Doshi, PhD, writing in the online BMJ (British Medical Journal), reveals a monstrosity.

As Doshi states, every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory samples are taken from flu patients in the US and tested in labs. Here is the kicker: only a small percentage of these samples show the presence of a flu virus.

This means: most of the people in America who are diagnosed by doctors with the flu have no flu virus in their bodies.

So they don’t have the flu.

Therefore, even if you assume the flu vaccine is useful and safe, it couldn’t possibly prevent all those “flu cases” that aren’t flu cases.

The vaccine couldn’t possibly work.

The vaccine isn’t designed to prevent fake flu, unless pigs can fly.

Here’s the exact quote from Peter Doshi’s BMJ review, “Influenza: marketing vaccines by marketing disease” (BMJ 2013; 346:f3037):

“…even the ideal influenza vaccine, matched perfectly to circulating strains of wild influenza and capable of stopping all influenza viruses, can only deal with a small part of the ‘flu’ problem because most ‘flu’ appears to have nothing to do with influenza. Every year, hundreds of thousands of respiratory specimens are tested across the US. Of those tested, on average 16% are found to be influenza positive.

“…It’s no wonder so many people feel that ‘flu shots’ don’t work: for most flus, they can’t.”

Because most diagnosed cases of the flu aren’t the flu.

So even if you’re a true believer in mainstream vaccine theory, you’re on the short end of the stick here. They’re conning your socks off. The CDC is supposed to be doing an accurate count of case numbers of diseases in the US. They’re lying and covering up the facts.

—Those of you in the Spider group of rebel scientists at the CDC, get busy. There are many more instances of massive corruption at your Agency. Dig in. Don’t let the American people down.

Go all the way.

You, too, Mr. Kennedy.

DEA Admits Constitutional Problems with Seizure Policies

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a public congressional cop-with-cash-300x200hearing in November to investigate recent allegations of misconduct in the Department of Justice (DOJ). The triggering event was a recent audit from the Office of the Inspector General (IG) that sharply criticized the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) for potentially extensive “fraud, waste, and abuse” through years of lax oversight of its powerful but secretive Confidential Source (CS) Program.

In their respective testimonies, Inspector General Michael Horowitz and DEA spokesman Melvin Patterson both admitted the exploitative civil forfeiture policies that enabled the DEA’s misbehavior entail “Fourth Amendment issues.” These issues stem from perverse incentives for law enforcement to mistreat innocent people. In a revealing exchange with Rep. Tim Walberg of Michigan, Horowitz went so far as to affirm concerns that “the DEA’s policies are warping priorities by prioritizing asset forfeiture rather than the seizure of drugs.”

This is an extraordinary admission concerning an agency that exists and is explicitly named for its duty to enforce federal drug laws.

The audits’ findings, which were previously reported in Forbes, include the DEA paying $237 million to CS informants to seize property from people’s luggage and mail as “evidence” of unsubstantiated wrongdoing. Agency sources who facilitated civil forfeitures stood to gain kickbacks “of up to $500,000 or 25 percent” of each seizure, whereas the DEA managed to shirk private citizen’s constitutional protections. As such, DOJ investigators determined these transactions “could have implications relating to compliance with the Fourth Amendment’s protections against unreasonable searches and seizures.”

The DEA acknowledged in Patterson’s testimony that it failed even to track metrics on the effectiveness of its CS program and rampant civil forfeiture, such as “convictions [and] drug seizures.” Horowitz and Patterson also admitted the DEA did not keep accurate accounting of its expenditures or whether any of its efforts were “worth it” even on the agency’s terms.

This embarrassing reality probably led to former DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart’s stubborn, year-long obstruction of the IG’s efforts to hold the agency accountable. As Horowitz’s congressional testimony noted, the previous DEA leadership managed to delay the audit’s completion by 18 months. Only when new leadership took over did the agency finally cooperate with the IG and make information fully available for review.

This hearing highlights the systemic abuse civil forfeiture enables against hardworking families. The Institute for Justice will continue to advocate in court and with policymakers to enact necessary reforms that protect innocent Americans from this unconstitutional practice.

Power to the People: John Lennon’s Legacy Lives On

By John W. Whiteheadjohn-lennon-2
December 05, 2016

“You gotta remember, establishment, it’s just a name for evil. The monster doesn’t care whether it kills all the students or whether there’s a revolution. It’s not thinking logically, it’s out of control.”—John Lennon (1969)

Militant nonviolent resistance works.

Peaceful, prolonged protests work.

Mass movements with huge numbers of participants work.

Yes, America, it is possible to use occupations and civil disobedience to oppose government policies, counter injustice and bring about change outside the confines of the ballot box.

It has been done before. It is being done now. It can be done again.

For example, in May of 1932, more than 43,000 people, dubbed the Bonus Army—World War I veterans and their families—marched on Washington. Out of work, destitute and with families to feed, more than 10,000 veterans set up tent cities in the nation’s capital and refused to leave until the government agreed to pay the bonuses they had been promised as a reward for their services.

The Senate voted against paying them immediately, but the protesters didn’t budge. Congress adjourned for the summer, and still the protesters remained encamped. Finally, on July 28, under orders from President Herbert Hoover, the military descended with tanks and cavalry and drove the protesters out, setting their makeshift camps on fire. Still, the protesters returned the following year, and eventually their efforts not only succeeded in securing payment of the bonuses but contributed to the passage of the G.I. Bill of Rights.

Similarly, the Civil Rights Movement mobilized hundreds of thousands of people to strike at the core of an unjust and discriminatory society. Likewise, while the 1960s anti-war movement began with a few thousand perceived radicals, it ended with hundreds of thousands of protesters, spanning all walks of life, demanding the end of American military aggression abroad.

Most recently, after months of protests over the construction of a pipeline that members of the Sioux tribe insisted would harm their water supply, the Army Corp of Engineers has agreed to look for an alternate route for the Dakota Access Pipeline to cross under Lake Oahe in North Dakota.

This kind of “power to the people” activism—grassroots, populist and potent—is exactly the brand of civic engagement John Lennon advocated throughout his career as a musician and anti-war activist.

It’s been 36 years since Lennon was gunned down by an assassin’s bullet on December 8, 1980, but his legacy and the lessons he imparted in his music and his activism have not diminished over the years.

All of the many complaints we have about government today—surveillance, militarism, corruption, harassment, SWAT team raids, political persecution, spying, overcriminalization, etc.—were present in Lennon’s day and formed the basis of his call for social justice, peace and a populist revolution.

Little wonder, then, that the U.S. government saw him as enemy number one.

Because he never refrained from speaking truth to power, Lennon became a prime example of the lengths to which the U.S. government will go to persecute those who dare to challenge its authority.

Lennon was the subject of a four-year campaign of surveillance and harassment by the U.S. government (spearheaded by FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover), an attempt by President Richard Nixon to have him “neutralized” and deported. As Adam Cohen of the New York Times points out, “The F.B.I.’s surveillance of Lennon is a reminder of how easily domestic spying can become unmoored from any legitimate law enforcement purpose. What is more surprising, and ultimately more unsettling, is the degree to which the surveillance turns out to have been intertwined with electoral politics.”

Years after Lennon’s assassination, it would be revealed that the FBI had collected 281 pages of surveillance files on him. As the New York Times notes, “Critics of today’s domestic surveillance object largely on privacy grounds. They have focused far less on how easily government surveillance can become an instrument for the people in power to try to hold on to power. ‘The U.S. vs. John Lennon’ … is the story not only of one man being harassed, but of a democracy being undermined.”

Such government-directed harassment was nothing new.

The FBI has had a long history of persecuting, prosecuting and generally harassing activists, politicians, and cultural figures, most notably among the latter such celebrated names as folk singer Pete Seeger, painter Pablo Picasso, comic actor and filmmaker Charlie Chaplin, comedian Lenny Bruce and poet Allen Ginsberg. Among those most closely watched by the FBI was Martin Luther King Jr., a man labeled by the FBI as “the most dangerous and effective Negro leader in the country.”

In Lennon’s case, the ex-Beatle had learned early on that rock music could serve a political end by proclaiming a radical message. More importantly, Lennon saw that his music could mobilize the public and help to bring about change.

For instance, in 1971 at a concert in Ann Arbor, Mich., Lennon took to the stage and in his usual confrontational style belted out “John Sinclair,” a song he had written about a man sentenced to 10 years in prison for possessing two marijuana cigarettes. Within days of Lennon’s call for action, the Michigan Supreme Court ordered Sinclair released.

While Lennon believed in the power of the people, he also understood the danger of a power-hungry government. “The trouble with government as it is, is that it doesn’t represent the people,” observed Lennon. “It controls them.”

By March 1971, when his “Power to the People” single was released, it was clear where Lennon stood. Having moved to New York City that same year, Lennon was ready to participate in political activism against the U. S. government, the “monster” that was financing the war in Vietnam.

The release of Lennon’s Sometime in New York City album, which contained a radical anti-government message in virtually every song and depicted President Richard Nixon and Chinese Chairman Mao Tse-tung dancing together nude on the cover, only fanned the flames of the conflict to come.

However, the official U.S. war against Lennon began in earnest in 1972 after rumors surfaced that Lennon planned to embark on a U.S. concert tour that would combine rock music with antiwar organizing and voter registration. Nixon, fearing Lennon’s influence on about 11 million new voters (1972 was the first year that 18-year-olds could vote), had the ex-Beatle served with deportation orders “in an effort to silence him as a voice of the peace movement.”

As Lennon’s FBI file shows, memos and reports about the FBI’s surveillance of the anti-war activist had been flying back and forth between Hoover, the Nixon White House, various senators, the FBI and the U.S. Immigration Office.

Nixon’s pursuit of Lennon was relentless and misplaced.

Despite the fact that Lennon was not plotting to bring down the Nixon Administration, as the government feared, the government persisted in its efforts to have him deported. Equally determined to resist, Lennon dug in and fought back. Every time he was ordered out of the country, his lawyers delayed the process by filing an appeal.

Finally, in 1976, Lennon won the battle to stay in the country and by 1980, he had re-emerged with a new album and plans to become politically active again. The old radical was back and ready to cause trouble.

Unfortunately, Lennon’s time as a troublemaker was short-lived.

Mark David Chapman was waiting in the shadows on Dec. 8, 1980, just as Lennon was returning to his New York apartment building.

As Lennon stepped outside the car to greet the fans congregating outside, Chapman, in an eerie echo of the FBI’s moniker for Lennon, called out, “Mr. Lennon!”

Lennon turned and was met with a barrage of gunfire as Chapman—dropping into a two-handed combat stance—emptied his .38-caliber pistol and pumped four hollow-point bullets into his back and left arm. Lennon stumbled, staggered forward and, with blood pouring from his mouth and chest, collapsed to the ground.

John Lennon was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital.

Much like Martin Luther King Jr., John F. Kennedy, Malcolm X, Robert Kennedy and others who have died attempting to challenge the powers-that-be, Lennon had finally been “neutralized.”

Still, you can’t murder a movement with a bullet and a madman: Lennon’s legacy lives on in his words, his music and his efforts to speak truth to power.

As Yoko Ono shared in a 2014 letter to the parole board tasked with determining whether Chapman should be released: “A man of humble origin, [John Lennon] brought light and hope to the whole world with his words and music. He tried to be a good power for the world, and he was. He gave encouragement, inspiration and dreams to people regardless of their race, creed and gender.”

Lennon’s work to change the world for the better is far from done.

Peace remains out of reach. Activism and whistleblowers continue to be prosecuted for challenging the government’s authority. Militarism is on the rise, all the while the governmental war machine continues to wreak havoc on innocent lives.

For those of us who joined with John Lennon to imagine a world of peace, it’s getting harder to reconcile that dream with the reality of the American police state. And as I point out in my book Battlefield America: The War on the American People, those who do dare to speak up are labeled dissidents, troublemakers, terrorists, lunatics, or mentally ill and tagged for surveillance, censorship or, worse, involuntary detention.

As Lennon shared in a 1968 interview:

“I think all our society is run by insane people for insane objectives… I think we’re being run by maniacs for maniacal means. If anybody can put on paper what our government and the American government and the Russian… Chinese… what they are actually trying to do, and what they think they’re doing, I’d be very pleased to know what they think they’re doing. I think they’re all insane. But I’m liable to be put away as insane for expressing that. That’s what’s insane about it.”

So what’s the answer?

Lennon had a multitude of suggestions.

“If everyone demanded peace instead of another television set, then there’d be peace.”

“Produce your own dream. If you want to save Peru, go save Peru. It’s quite possible to do anything, but not to put it on the leaders….You have to do it yourself.”

“Peace is not something you wish for; It’s something you make, Something you do, Something you are, And something you give away.”

“If you want peace, you won’t get it with violence.”

“Say you want a revolution / We better get on right away / Well you get on your feet / And out on the street / Singing power to the people.”

And my favorite advice of all: “All you need is love. Love is all you need.”

Not Just Bees, Trees Are Dying Off at an Alarming Rate With Little Public Attention

Northern California

In the background of modern life, as people go on debating politics and working for a living, something dreadful is happening to the eco-systems which support us. Major disasters like the ongoing radioactive leak at Fukushima, the apocalyptic fires burning throughout Indonesia, even bee colony collapse disorder, seem to fall out of view in day-to-day life, as we seem to have lost our power and will to directly participate in the stewardship of planet earth.

A new crisis is now happening all around us affecting trees. It appears that millions, hundreds of millions even, of trees are dying in North America and around the world from a basket of reasons, promising to completely and permanently alter the landscape and environment around us.

Tree are among the most abundant and the most critical organisms on planet earth, and only recently have we been able to assess just how many trees inhabit planet earth. A study published in 2015 gave us this picture:

   “A new study published in Nature estimates the planet has 3.04 trillion trees. The research says 15.3 billion trees are chopped down every year. It also estimates that 46% of the world’s trees have been cleared over the past 12,000 years.” [Source]

Now in 2016, alarm bells are ringing and in California alone, the problem has become incredibly severe:

   “The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that the U.S. Forest Service has identified an additional 36 million dead trees across California since its last aerial survey in May 2016. This brings the total number of dead trees since 2010 to over 102 million on 7.7 million acres of California’s drought stricken forests. In 2016 alone, 62 million trees have died, representing more than a 100 percent increase in dead trees across the state from 2015. Millions of additional trees are weakened and expected to die in the coming months and years.” [Source]

A New York Times feature on trees in California warns us that many of the state’s trees were already dead before forest fires moved in, thereby making the fire situation worse.

Beyond California

Many of the tree deaths in Northern California have been linked to Sudden Oak Death in addition to an ongoing drought, but, the tragic die-off of trees is far from limited to California. In 2010, Hawaii’s well ohi’a trees began to die on the Big Island due to a disease now referred to as ohi’a disease, and scientists still don’t understand its origins or how to treat it. These are just a few examples of many in a wave of issues killing trees in many parts of America and around the world.

   “The plight of the ohi’a is not unique – it’s part of a quiet crisis playing out in forests across America. Drought, disease, insects and wildfire are chewing up tens of millions of trees at an incredible pace, much of it driven by climate change.” [Source]

Entire mountainsides are dying off in short order, leaving a bleak future for wildlife and residents. Some speculate that the widespread loss of trees due to such a wide conflagration of issues is a sign that trees, the most rugged of all plants, are in general weakened from an environment under complex attack by pollution and even climate engineering projects.

   “In California and in other parts of the world, many are making the connection between climate engineering these tree die-offs. Also known as geoengineering, this is the modification of the earth’s atmosphere with the supplementation of compounds and chemicals, ostensibly as a means of favorably influencing the climate.” [Source]

Could be, although there is nothing like a consensus on the issue of why trees are in such a weakened state that so many are succumbing to so many issues.

A Planet Out of Balance

   “Natural ecosystems have been altered in various ways by nitrogen, sulfur, and mercury deposited in rain, snow, or as gases and particles in the atmosphere. Through decades of scientific research, scientists have documented how local, regional, and global sources of air pollution can produce profound changes in ecosystems. These changes include acidification of soils and surface waters, harmful algal blooms and low oxygen conditions in estuaries, reduced diversity of native plants, high levels of mercury in fish and other wildlife, and decreased tolerance to other stresses, such as pests, disease, and planned climate change.” – Issues in Ecology, Fall 2011 Edition – “Setting Limits – Using Air Pollution Thresholds to Protect and Restore U.S. Ecosystems”

The web of life cannot be damaged in one area without the effects being felt elsewhere. Just as bees and other insects are dying off en masse by a number of causes, some known and unknown, trees are also harbingers of the health of our planet. With such little attention given to the state of this earth and so much attention given to the human and political dramas that occupy our attention 24/7, will the human race wake up and react in time to avert a major planetary crisis?

MASTER LIFE

Master Life

The more we learn to live in harmony with God’s Law, the more we will master life.

POSITIVE LAW VS. NEGATIVE LAW

Biblical Law is applied Christianity and that is where the main focus of this Mastering Life series is going to be.  But for the moment, we are going to take a break and compare God’s Law with man’s law to discover why one works and the other doesn’t.

Look at the following points:

Negative Law
1.  You shall have no other gods before Me.
2.  You shall not make for yourself any carved image.
3.  You shall not take the Name of the Lord your God in vain.
4.  Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
5.  Honour your father and your mother.
6.  You shall not murder.
7.  You shall not commit adultery.
8.  You shall not steal.
9.  You shall not bear false witness.
10. You shall not covet.

Positive Law
1.   Everyone has the freedom of conscience and religion.
2.   Everyone has the freedom of thought, belief, opinion, and expression.
3.   Everyone has the freedom of peaceful assembly.
4.   Everyone was the right to life, liberty, and security of person.
5.   Everyone has the right to be secure against unreasonable search or seizure.
6.   Everyone has the right not to be arbitrarily detained or imprisoned.
7.   Every American citizen has the right to vote.
8.   Every American citizen has the right to enter, remain in, and leave America.
9.   Plus many other provisions and rights.

Which set of laws do you prefer?  Personally, I like positive law.  It makes me feel good to know what my rights are as compared to being told what I can’t do.  Most of us are human enough to like that idea.  But isn’t negative law a major criticism of Christianity – “You’re always telling me what I can’t do?”

The simple answer is [and we’ll look at the reason in a moment] that negative law works and positive law doesn’t.  Think about it.  If positive law is so great then why does it protect and promote high taxes, thieves, murderers, rapists, etc.?  Why does it give us ineffective crime punishment?  Why is the economy always up and down?  Why do the poor become poorer and the rich richer under positive law?  Keep on asking questions like these until you realize:  It doesn’t work!

Looking at the above list, we see Nature’s laws are almost all negative.  Even the two positive commands have implied negatives.  Remember the Sabbath is followed by you shall do no work on the Sabbath.  Honour your father and mother is supported by laws telling us what not to do.

Negative law has positive results, which lead to true freedom.  Man’s positive law has negative results, which lead to tyranny and bondage.

On a piece of paper draw a circle.  Inside the circle write the word “Rights.”  On the outside of circle write the words “Forbidden Zone.”  Now draw large cracks and holes in the circle.

Positive law draws a circle just as you have done.  It says, “You have the right to freedom of speech.  You have the right to…etc.”  All our rights are protected [supposedly] inside the circle.  The basic implication of all positive law is:  Whatever is not permitted is forbidden.  In other words, if we haven’t been given the right to it, then we can’t have it – and there is a whole lot of space outside the circle!

That would be bad enough, but positive law can never stop there.  As you drew, there are large cracks in the circle.  Because positive law is concerned with our “rights,” it must have laws to defend them and make sure we get them.  In short, under positive law, the law comes to control every aspect of life.  Isn’t that what we see happening around us and other countries today?  It is the ultimate socialistic dream of salvation by law in direct conflict with the Christian doctrine of salvation.

The health of the people is the highest law in a positive law system
.  While that sounds great, it must [because of the very nature of the beast] lead to tyranny.  In seeking the supposed highest good – as determined by government bureaucrats – the law must attempt to control all people and all their activities.

“Because the law is unlimited, the State is unlimited.  It becomes the business of the State, not to control evil, but to control all men.  Basic to every totalitarian regime is a positive concept of law.”  R.J. Rushdoony

And so in a positive law system laws multiply like rabbits in order to try and control every aspect of life [sound familiar?].  The result is that nobody can keep them all. The end product is an enslaved people forced to dance to the whims of the legal makers or face their wrath.  What a price to pay for rejecting nature’s law system!

Now take up your illustrator’s pen once again.  Draw another circle.  Inside the circle put the words “Forbidden Zone.”  On the outside of the circle put the word “Permitted.”  This is God’s negative law system.  It says, “Thou shalt not steal.  Thou shalt not…etc.”  In this system everything inside the circle is forbidden and the boundaries are clear.  The basic implication is:  Whatever is not forbidden is permitted.  [That is why we have to be very careful with our ‘thou shalt nots,’ because if it hasn’t been forbidden – in word or principle – then it is allowed].

Negative law forces the law to deal with specific evil acts.  This means that, except for the forbidden zone, man’s life is beyond the law.  As long as we are not acting in the relatively small forbidden zone or headed for it, the law is uninterested in what we are doing.  If we go to the forbidden zone, the law will jump up and yell, “Thou shalt not.”  In any other case, negative law doesn’t care what we do.

Do you see why negative law brings freedom and positive law brings tyranny?

Positive law is unlimited law. Negative law is limited to controlling evil.  Positive law assumes people are childish so the State must “father” them.  It must provide for them and make sure everything in their lives is taken care of.  It is total interference!  Eventually, it makes people totally dependent on the State, unable to make decisions for themselves.  It destroys human beings and tramples liberty and individual thought.

“A medical colleague returning from Finland in the 1980s told me how Russian men would marry Finish women so they could emigrate to Finland.  Once there, however, the array of decisions that the average citizen makes concerning housing, shopping, etc., was just too much for many of them to bear.  Overwhelmed by the task of taking responsibility for their life, the men went back to Russia where scarcity and aggression make choice a rarity.  This destruction of the questing human spirit, of the confidence in one’s ability to cope with the world, is the most devastating effect of the extreme aggression of communism.”  Dr. Mary Ruwart, Healing Our World

While this is seen most in extreme communism, it is the end result of all positive law – including the varieties of socialism practiced in North America.

“Socialism of any type leads to a total destruction of the human spirit…”  Alexander Solzhenitsyn

Negative law deals with things realistically.  It knows people are not childish but irresponsible.  They are in deliberate rebellion to Nature’s God. So negative law doesn’t try to save people [that is legalism] or “father” them.  It concentrates on prohibiting and punishing public acts of evil.

“When the law loses its negativity, when the law assumes a positive function, it protects the criminals and the fools, and it penalizes responsible men.”  R.J. Rushdoony

Isn’t that what is happening today?  It is almost safer to be a criminal than an upright citizen!  Regardless of its intent, positive law will always end up supporting evil and evil men at the expense of the innocent and the law abiding.

After having said all that, I need to make one more thing clear.  Although the foundation of Divine law is negative that does not mean there are no positive commands.

The basic structure of negative law does have some positive commands, just as the basic structure of positive law has negative commands.  The positive commands, within the negative frame, show we are responsible to take action to protect and to help other people.  We cannot retreat within ourselves and say, “I haven’t broken any laws so everything is OK.”  We have responsibilities we must fulfill.  Let’s take a look at a couple of examples.

“If you meet your enemy’s ox or his donkey going astray, you shall surely bring it back to him.  If you meet the donkey of one who hates you laying under its burden, and you would refrain from helping it, you shall surely help him with it.”  [Ex. 23:4-5, NKJV]

Here we have a positive command.  If someone [even an enemy] has lost something and we find it, we are responsible to return it.  We cannot look the other way when someone needs help – it doesn’t matter who that someone is – we are required to give the help needed.

“And if a man opens a pit, or if a man digs a pit and does not cover it, and an ox or a donkey falls into it, the owner of the pit shall give money to their owner, but the dead beast shall be his.”  [Ex. 21:33-34, NKJV]

Again, we have a positive command.  This time we learn we are responsible to take reasonable safety precautions or we will bear the consequences.

This also clearly illustrates the difference between negative law and positive law.  Negative law simply states that if you dig a pit you had better cover it or you will be responsible for any resulting damage [no government inspectors needed!].  Positive law would tell us where we could dig the pit, how deep and wide it could be, what kind of cover to put on it, and probably make us buy [extort] a digging permit before we could dig it.  And people want to live under positive law!?!

Since negative law has some positive commands and positive law has some negative commands, how can we tell if the law is part of the negative or positive law system?  To figure that out we must look at the basic law structure in which a specific law is found.  If the foundation of the law is built on the premise of controlling and punishing evil then we have negative law.  If the premise is one of controlling people [who have committed no moral crime] to ensure everyone gets their “rights,” then we are dealing with positive law.

 

MORE OF THE NAME GAME

Slavery isn’t illegal~ Please see: Capitis Diminutio Maxima or our names in all capital letters. It signifies a maximum loss of legal status to that of slaves in bondage to uphold the massive debt they created, and slaves have no rights, only privileges for which we must first ask permission (permits, registrations, licenses) then pay. Our de facto federal government can ONLY interact with us via these corporate entities in all capital letters, and I don’t know about you, but I’m not a legal fiction, creature of the mind, illusory entity, I’m ME!

IMHO, any affiliation to the political system to which we must fraudulently consent in “Order” to be recognized by and thereby legally (but not lawfully, apples and oranges) bound is simply calling a stinking rose by a different name. Libertarian = tarian = tare, as in the opposite of wheat = morally relative.

Their system is martial/corporate/maritime/admiralty/UCC/commercial legal jurisdiction. It’s all about jurisdiction and competency, then words and law, and tricking us into believing we are something we are not, and that is a possession of the defunct federal government (since at least 1933) as an “individual fictitious legal entity” or, an illusory creature of the mind only. It’s a scam, folks, and we must voluntarily fall for it.
ABOLISH HEALTH & HUMAN SERVICES – NOW
November 11, 2016vaccine-and-money

Last Friday, November 4th, Obum-phukker quietly signed an Executive Order titled Advancing the Global Health Security Agenda to Achieve a World Safe and Secure from Infectious Disease Threats. –The thing about “Executive Orders” is – they are NOT law.

“It is the policy of U.S. Inc. to advance the Global Health Security Agenda (GHSA), which is a multi-faceted, multi-country initiative intended to accelerate partner countries’ measurable capabilities to achieve specific targets to prevent, detect, and respond to infectious disease threats (GHSA targets), whether naturally occurring, deliberate, or accidental.”

So basically, the agenda is to push vaccines and normalize quarantine procedures across nations during outbreaks.vaccine

GHSA Immunization Agenda states that participating countries must have….

“A functioning national vaccine delivery system—with nationwide reach, effective distributions, access for marginalized populations, adequate cold chain, and ongoing quality control.”

“At least 90% coverage of the country’s 15-month-old population with at least one dose of measles-containing vaccine.”

Some notable “Five Year Action Items” include:

* Conduct routine immunization activities
* Implement case-based surveillance
* Achieve and document vaccination of health care workers

Bill Gates provided the CDC with a surveillance tool that helps identify “district-level measles risk” based on immunization records. (Source is same CDC link as above).

What’s more, the HHS recently proposed giving the CDC the power to detain and quarantine people without due Process. (And HHS got this power from??)

“When an apprehension occurs, the individual is not free to leave or discontinue his/her discussion with an HHS/CDC public health or quarantine officer.”

“…the proposed practice to issue Federal orders before a medical examination has taken place.”

CDC defines precommunicable stage to mean the stage beginning upon an individual’s earliest opportunity for exposure to an infectious agent.”

“CDC may enter into an agreement with a slave, upon such terms as the CDC considers to be reasonably necessary, indicating that the slave consents to any of the public health measures authorized under this part, including quarantine, isolation, conditional release, medical examination, hospitalization, vaccination, and treatment: provided that the individual’s consent shall not be considered as a prerequisite to any exercise of any authority under this part.”

“…slaves who violate the terms of the agreement or the terms of the Federal order for quarantine, isolation, or conditional release (even if no agreement is in place between the slave and the corporation), he or she may be subject to criminal penalties.”

The source of all quotes above is the official proposed rule for the Control of Communicable Diseases by Health & Human Services (HHS).

Is Your VACCINATED Child A “Haz Mat”?

Catherine J. Frompovich

What a question to ask: Is your vaccinated child ‘hazardous material’?  Wow!

However, that’s not flippant at all when one considers the amount of hazardous chemicals and toxic heavy metals being injected into infants starting at day one of life and then at every 2, 4 and 6 month ‘well baby’ visit to their pediatricians, who promote vaccines like they were ‘safe’.

It doesn’t stop there, either!  All through childhood and into college years, children MUST receive vaccinations in order to attend day care, grade school, high school and college!

 And, it doesn’t stop after that, as the CDC and the FDA are now mandating that all adults receive every vaccine that children receive, plus more!  Check out how many new vaccines are in Big Pharma’s production pipeline and you will realize that soon you will have to be getting a vaccination a day!

The Weston A Price Foundation has produced the most factual video why parents should reconsider vaccinations along with incriminating statistics.  That information is taken from government sources, the CDC’s VAERS reporting form.

“Vaccinations”


The information in the above video unfortunately can be ‘enhanced’ further by the fact that vaccine data and research information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) OFTEN are fraudulent and deceptive, as documented in the movie VAXXED, From Cover Up to Catastrophe.

My book, Vaccination Voodoo, What YOU Don’t Know About Vaccines, available on Amazon.com, discusses most of vaccines’ toxic ingredients and what they do, as published in peer-reviewed research journals.  That is factual information every caring parent really should know before weighing the pros and cons of vaccines and vaccinations.

It’s time to take back our children’s health, wellbeing and lives!

Children’s deteriorating health statistics point to, if not prove, something is causing their unfortunate chronic illnesses and NOTHING, including vaccines, should be excluded from the mix of finding out what’s causing a very sick younger population.

Here’s What The Media Won’t Report About The Dakota Access Pipeline Opposition

NOVEMBER 9, 2016
By Chris “Kikila” Perrinnodapl

There is an ongoing clash in what is known as North Dakota; an event that is more than simply a protest, it is an intersection of many different ideas and values that transcend the issues that appear to be at the fore: water, land, and oil.

One of the unfortunate side-effects of this growing intersection is that the deeper meaning, the long-standing issues that have contributed to the confrontation, are being ignored and therefore forgotten by the press, and by those who rely on the popular media for information.

By framing discussions and reporting of the Dakota Access Pipeline and Water Protectors from the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and their supporters as a legal question, the mass media not only overlooks the colonial and assimilatory aspect of such arguments, they actively participate in them.

That a definable rule of law, as codified by a judicial body and overseen by agents of that body (often a police force), is universal and, therefore, universally applicable, let alone fair, is a colonial construction.

As actions in and around Cannon Ball escalate, there is a growing discussion in the popular press as to the legality of these actions. Treaty rights, private property, and violations like trespassing have all become central issues to how the grievances of the Water Protectors and their allies are being portrayed, particularly on the ground, ignoring the very idea that the imposition of a colonial legal structure is, by its very imposition, an act of colonization.

Pre-Columbian North Americans were not a lawless group, despite such portrayal. Nor are their descendants. What was at issue during the early stages of colonization was the inability for Euro-North American governments to recognize indigenous concepts of law (Sally Falk Moore, Law as Process: An Anthropological Approach (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2000), Introduction).

Imposing Euro-American legal structures on Native Americans not only created the conditions for dispossessing indigenous peoples from their traditional lands, it also set the stage for all future arguments. Basically, in creating a legal system in the European model, the U.S. is able to choose the language of all conversations it has with Native land defenders, and Native territorial disputes.

It has been suggested in the press that the treaty governing the disputed territory opens the land to development, and that the Water Protectors and their allies are misinformed. Other articles argue that eminent domain was never employed in this area, pointing out that much of the property in question is private. In what is typical of the propaganda rhetoric offered by the mainstream media, it is what isn’t said, or omitted, that needs clarification.

Private property, insofar as this context is concerned, is a colonial import, making the point moot when talking about industrial development. That the press and conservative commentators point to the rule of law and legislation by an assimilatory judicial body as justification for continued dispossession, and the unending marginalization of alternative systems of justice, forces the conversation to take place within the colonial framework.

As police escalate the violence at encampments near Cannon Ball in what can only be described as the next wave of cultural genocide through Manifest Destiny, aspects of the greater conversation over assimilation and colonialism remain off the table.

At the very least, grassroots and social media have forced the issue into the mainstream. At most, the way this moment in history is represented, and the conversations this action is producing, are not addressing the underlying issues that continue to undermine reconciliation, leading to an even greater divide between the colonial government and its marginalized and forgotten citizens.
