Subject: False Flag Earth - The Planned Decimation of a Planet
I like this writer because he's trying to put together a vision of the Big Picture. And doing it quite successfully too.
I run across such information as is in this article and more during my scanning of the Internet. I'm sure you do too. I don't even try to portray a written description of the Big Picture because it's impossible to do and I don't have the time or energy to attempt it. All one can do is to give a brief glimpse of it or else to focus on a part of it, But even if one took the pains to try to write about all of the attrocities, manipulations and bullshit that we are subject to, what would the reader do after laboriously going through such material? Probably nothing.
What is important, I suppose, is what is our response going to be or is an adequate response even possible considering the mass ignorance of the citizenry and the divided society which the ruling elite have created and continue to create on a day-to-day basis.
As is laid out in this article, the insanity of the ruling elite is now plain to see regarding everything that they are doing. They are literally destroying the planet's environment and humanity along with it. How can we survive on a poisoned and irradiated planet where our food base is being destroyed and we are being attacked in a multitude of various ways? And collectively we seem unable to do anything about it, eg. the Fukushima crisis, the Gulf of Mexico crisis and the political and economic crises. This is a question that drives me to despair. It makes me think that the inevitability of an End Times scenario may be more of reallity that I previously wanted to believe.
And do the ruling elite also believe in an End Time scenario, even as they seem to be engineering it themselves? They certainly seem to be digging in for some sort of massive catastrophe.
One thing is for sure. We have to take back power from the insane ruling elite and begin to repair the damage they have inflicted. We have to put the world onto a sustainable footing. Otherwise, as the saying goes, "we will end up where we are going".

I'm pleased to announce that the Money Bomb Against Monsanto has been officially launched!
Yes, it is official.
Volunteers and staff from the California Right to Know Campaign are submitting nearly 1 million signed petitions from registered voters across the state of California to county officials, to place Right to Know Genetically Engineered Food Act on the Ballot for November 6.
Starting May 1, and extending through May 26, a broad coalition of farmers, health groups, and organic food manufacturers, will attempt to raise one million dollars (i.e. "The Money Bomb"). Donations can be made online, via regular snail mail, and over the phone. All donations will support state GMO-labeling campaigns and their defense from biotech bully lawsuits.
The Right to Know Gentically Engineered Food Act
This Act will require food manufacturers to identify genetically engineered ingredients on the labels of foods sold in California.
When California voters pass this ballot initiative, the Label Genetically Engineered Food Act will also not allow the common practice of mislabeling genetically engineered foods as "natural" or "all natural." It's imperative to understand why this initiative is so important and how it can affect all Americans, regardless of where you live.
California has the eighth largest economy in the world, so passing a labeling law for genetically engineered foods in California can have the same impact as passing a federal law.
Large food companies are unlikely to accept having dual labeling; one for California and another for the rest of the country. It would be an expensive logistical nightmare, not to mention a massive PR problem.
To avoid the dual labeling, many would likely opt to not include using any genetically engineered ingredients in their product, especially if the new label would be the equivalent of a skull and crossbones. Those who opt not to replace GE ingredients from the get-go will likely find themselves unable to sell their products, as a majority of consumers reportedly will not buy foods once they know they're genetically engineered. Unable to sell their products, such companies will eventually be forced to stop contaminating our food with genetically engineered ingredients, or risk going out of business.
This is what happened in Europe and over 40 countries around the world. It can happen in the U.S. This is why we can't leave California to battle the biotech giants on their own. They need your help! Donating funds to this campaign may be the best money you'll spend all year to safeguard your health, and the health of your children.
Do you know which foods are genetically engineered when you go grocery shopping for your family? Wouldn't you want to know? Genetically engineered foods have been on the market since 1996. It's time they tell us what's in the food we're eating on a daily basis. Making a generous donation to this campaign is the best chance every American has at this point to make that happen!
The Proverbial David versus Goliath
Naturally, the biotech industry is not about to let this pass without a fight. Monsanto, the Farm Bureau, the Grocery Manufacturers Association, along with corporate agribusiness, are all raising millions of dollars to spread their propaganda in an effort to defeat the California Ballot Initiative, just like they did a decade ago in Oregon. At that time, a cabal of corporate giants, including Monsanto and DuPont, calling themselves The Coalition Against the Costly Labeling Law, outspent the pro-labeling group 30-1, and successfully defeated the labeling initiative by scaring voters into believing that labeling genetically engineered foods was unnecessary and would raise food prices.
They did it again in Washington state last month, where campaign contributions to three of the eight politicians on the Senate Agriculture Committee—Democrat Brian Hatfield, and Republicans Jim Honeyford and Mark Schoesler—guaranteed the bill's demise in committee. Right now, the biotech industry is also working to defeat similar GE labeling bills in Vermont, Hawaii, Connecticut, and other states. According to the Union of Concerned Scientists, Monsanto spent $8 million on their lobbying efforts in 2010 alone, and gave more than $400,000 in political contributions. Monsanto also spent $120 million on advertising, to convince consumers that genetically engineered foods are safe – despite the overwhelming scientific evidence showing otherwise.
Let's send them a message, loud and clear: We have the right to know what they put into our food!
You can do so by making a donation right now. The money will be used to counter the industry propaganda so that we can win this ballot.
We're Dropping the Money Bomb!
About twenty years ago, the FDA decided to deny consumers the right to know whether their food was genetically altered or not. This shameful regulation was spearheaded by Michael Taylor, a former Monsanto lawyer who transferred into the offices of the FDA. Taylor is not the only ex-Monsanto employee that ended up in a position of power within the US federal government and its regulatory agencies, and this is precisely why previous efforts to get genetically engineered foods labeled have been blocked.
Not so this time!
Ballot Initiatives like the one in California is one way for citizens to take back control from compromised politicians and government officials and bypass them entirely. To sweeten the deal further, a group of "Right to Know" public interest organizations and organic companies have pledged to match the first million dollars raised in this nationwide "Drop the Money Bomb on Monsanto Campaign."
So click here, and help us raise 1 million dollars to win this historic campaign! These "Right to Know" groups include:
The Organic Consumers Association
Food Democracy Now
Lundberg Family Farms
Eden Foods, and
The Organic Consumers Fund
Can We Win?
Yes, I believe we can! But we need to get the word out, which requires a strong campaign to educate the citizens of California to vote for the initiative on November 6. According to Ronnie Cummins of the Organic Consumers Association, we stand a good chance of winning in California because:
This time, we have far more scientific information and greater public awareness on our side. GE contamination is now a mainstream media issue. Monsanto has become the most hated corporation in the world.
This time, we have overwhelming public support. Polls show that more than 8 out of 10 voters in California want mandatory GE labeling.
This time, we have built the strongest coalition of concerned food consumers in history, for the exclusive purpose of passing this law.
The Time for Action is NOW!
Today, I ask you to invest in this Initiative. Invest in your future. And invest as generously as you can. If you've already sent in your donation, thank you! If not, please contribute to this historic and critical campaign today. And then please forward this email to your friends. Share it on Facebook and Twitter. Print it out, hand it to all your friends. Every action counts!
As stated by Ronnie Cummins with the Organic Consumers Association:
"Monsanto is one of the most powerful, arrogant and destructive companies in the world. For decades, they have controlled the world's food supply by buying off politicians and regulatory agencies, intimidating small farmers, manipulating the outcome of scientific studies, lying to consumers - and threatening to sue states like Vermont if they dare to pass a GMO labeling law.
... Despite Monsanto's claims to the contrary, scientists are clear: genetically engineered food has been linked to a wide range of health hazards, including kidney and liver damage, infertility, auto-immune disorders, allergies and autism, accelerated aging, and birth defects...
We have the right to know if the food we buy has been genetically engineered.... It's time to take back our food. Our farms. Our power. It's time to show Monsanto what ordinary people like us can do when we come together. It's time to drop the money bomb on Monsanto."
Hundreds of thousands of people making small donations can help the coalition behind this initiative run a dynamic, effective campaign to bring down Monsanto and the rest of the Biotech Bullies.
From the Douglass "Daily Dose" Report today:
How poison ends up on your dinner table
It might take a tough man to make a tender bird. But it takes a mad scientist to create the "chicken" on your dinner plate these days.
In fact, a recent series of tests finds enough drugs to stock a pharmacy hidden inside your chicken -- including Prozac, antibiotics, antihistamines, acetaminophen, and (as if that's not enough) a side of arsenic.
In one study, researchers tested a poultry byproduct called feather-meal made (obviously) of feathers. That might sound strange, but toxins, drugs and everything else fed to a chicken end up in those feathers.
That means if it's in the feathers, it's in the meat -- and they found everything short of Col. Sanders' goatee in the feathers.
First and foremost, they found traces of banned antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin. Poultry farms aren't supposed to use these drugs, but to hell with the rules. They have chickens to grow, and antibiotics plump those birds up fast and easy.
Just one problem: Along with fatter chickens, the overuse of antibiotics has created a frightening new class of drug-resistant superbugs. So while they get more meat to sell, we get incurable infections.
The researchers also found caffeine, which stimulates chickens so they stay awake and eat more. But since caffeinated stressed-out chickens have tough meat, the birds need something else to bring them down.
That would explain the Benadryl and acetaminophen also found in the feather-meal. They're basically tenderizers. That would also explain the PROZAC (!!!!) found in samples of feather-meal from China.
I'd say that's what you get for buying chicken from China -- but clearly, we have nothing to crow about since the rest of those drug-laced samples were all-American.
Meanwhile, a second new study finds arsenic in the feather-meal. This is no accident; poultry farmers feed low levels of the poison to their chickens to give the meat that pink glow consumers love so much.
All this is bad news for chicken-lovers, of course, but don't flip the bird into the trash just yet. Just go organic.
It'll cost you a wing and a leg, but it'll be worth it.
BASED ON THIS AND THE CDC'S SUCCESS IN FORCING THE FLU SHOT ON HEALTHCARE WORKERS... HEALTHCARE WORKERS ARE NOW RECOMMENDED MORE ROUNDS OF VACCINES:
The increased numbers of outbreaks and measles importations into the United States underscore the ongoing risk for measles among unvaccinated persons and the importance of vaccination against measles (3).
During 2011, a total of 222 measles cases (incidence rate: 0.7 per 1 million population)
200 (90%) were associated with importations from other countries
Health-care providers play an important role in maintaining elimination of measles in the United States. Patients with measles frequently seek medical care; therefore, health-care providers should maintain a high awareness of measles.
Health-care providers should encourage vaccination of all eligible patients, including children and adults. MMR vaccine is recommended routinely for all children at age 12–15 months, with a second dose at age 4–6 years. Two doses of MMR vaccine also are recommended for unvaccinated health-care personnel, international travelers, and students attending post–high school educational institutions. Other adults without evidence of measles immunity should receive 1 dose of MMR vaccine (3).
