North Korea fuelling rocket ahead of banned launch

Posted: 29 Mar 2012 08:01 AM PDT

North Korea has begun fuelling a rocket for a launch seen by the West as a pretext for testing ballistic missile technology banned by the UN. The United States has suspended its food aid plan to the country.

The country had begun inserting liquid fuel into the rocket, a diplomatic source told Japanese newspaper the Tokyo Shimbun.

“The launch is coming closer. The possibility is high that the launch date will be set for April 12 or 13,” the Japanese newspaper source said. He also confirmed earlier reports that the rocket had been moved to a launch pad in Tongchang-ri in the country’s far northwest.

The provider of high resolution satellite imagery DigitalGlobe took a photo on Wednesday showing what appears to be trucks near the North Korean launch pad, while a crane arm on the tower has been swung wide.

“It does confirm a higher level of activity within the overall facility and significant activity at the launch pad specifically,”Joseph Bermudez, a senior analyst for DigitalGlobe explained. “This activity appears consistent with preparations for a satellite launch,” he added.

However, the commercial vendor of space imagery and geospatial content reported they could see no sign the booster or first stage of the rocket had been moved to the pad. South Korea military who also keep an eye anxiously on their northern neighbor's military activities admitted they have no information on whether the rocket was being fuelled, but earlier they reported that parts of the rocket were transported to the launch pad.

Tighten your belt, Pyongyang

Meanwhile, the United States has suspended its food aid plan to North Korea, as Pyongyang refuses to cancel its rocket launch scheduled for mid-April.

Washington claims that the scheduled launch, which North Korea says has nothing to do with nuclear tests, is breaking a deal made between the two countries last month.

“This planned launch is highly provocative because it manifests North Korea’s desire to test and expand its long-range missile capability,” said Peter Lavoy, Acting Assistant Secretary of Defense for Asian and Pacific Affairs.

Pyongyang says that the launch’s purposes are absolutely peaceful, as the rocket will just take a satellite into orbit.

According to the agreement signed by the two countries in February, the US provides food aid to North Korea if it partially freezes its nuclear activities and agrees to a missile test moratorium.

The US had previously warned that that any rocket launch would jeopardize the food aid program.

‘Cannibalism looms for N. Korea due to food aid cut’

Rumors were confirmed recently of cannibalism in North Korea because of the serious nature of the starvation going on there, James Corbett, editor of The Corbett Report told RT.

The people there are very much dependent on food aid provided by US, he believes.

"Any idea that NK can function as some sort of isolated community in the international stage is just absolute pie in the sky thinking."

The food aid cut is a clear example of the US shooting itself in the foot if it's trying to change the North Korean society power structure through a move like this. James Corbett is sure that the more the people are relient on Pyongyang for the food aid, the more centralized control authorities have over the country.

"Ultimately the only effect this will have is that it will make the people of North Korea even more dependent on Pyongyang and the central power it holds over the food supply," he explained.

China, Russia plan naval war exercises next month

Posted: 29 Mar 2012 07:59 AM PDT

China says it will join Russia in naval war games starting next month in the Sea of Japan and the Yellow Sea.

The official Xinhua News Agency quoted Defense Ministry spokesman Yang Yujun as saying Thursday that the exercise will begin in late April and run into May. The specific locations were not disclosed.

Yang says the joint exercise is aimed at improving cooperation and ensuring stability in the Asia-Pacific region.

China and Russia have conducted several joint military exercises since 2005 within the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization.

The group also includes the Central Asian countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan and aims to promote regional cooperation and check U.S. influence

UK queen accused of drug trafficking

Posted: 27 Mar 2012 09:18 AM PDT

Britain's financial regulator has fined the British queen's bank for money laundering failures as a French presidential candidate has said part of the queen's fortune "comes from drug trafficking."

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) has fined the British queen's bank, Coutts Bank, 8.75 million pounds for failing to carry out correct checks on "politically exposed persons" and prevent money laundering.

"The failings at Coutts were serious, systemic and were allowed to persist for almost three years. They resulted in an unacceptable risk of Coutts handling the proceeds of crime," the FSA said in a statement posted on its official website.

The news comes less than a week after a fringe candidate for April's French presidential election said the British queen owed her fortune to drugs money laundered by "Jewish bankers in The City."

On 21 March, Jacques Cheminade, an independent presidential candidate running in the French election, said, "a part of the fortune of the Queen of England comes from drug trafficking."

"No, not any property, there are several other sources. But it is a series of trafficking in which, yes, there is trafficking drugs," Cheminade said on television LCP French National Assembly.

Known as the British queen's banker, Coutts was criticised for "significant, widespread and unacceptable" failures, as described by Tracey McDermott, acting director of enforcement and financial crime.

"The size of the financial penalty demonstrates how seriously we view its failures," McDermott said.

Shock Obama Move Gives All Water in America To US Military

Posted: 24 Mar 2012 10:59 AM PDT

An alarming new report prepared by the Federal Water Resources Agency of the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment circulating in the Kremlin today states that United States President Obama has given control over all water in America to his military forces in what Russian officials deem an"unprecedented attack" against the freedom of human beings to have access to what is unquestionable our planets most vital life sustaining substance next to the air we breathe.

According to this report, on 16 March, Obama enacted what is called an Executive Order titled National Defense Resources Preparedness that amended the Defense Production Act of 1950 which is, in essence, a law designed to give the American President total dictatorial powers in cases of national emergencies or war.

The Defense Production Act of 1950 contains three major sections. The first authorizes the President to require businesses to sign contracts or fulfill orders deemed necessary for national defense. The second authorizes the President to establish mechanisms (such as regulations, orders or agencies) to allocate materials, services and facilities to promote national defense. The third section authorizes the President to control the civilian economy so that scarce and/or critical materials necessary to the national defense effort are available for defense needs.

The Act also authorizes the President to requisition property, force industry to expand production and the supply of basic resources, impose wage and price controls, settle labor disputes, control consumer and real estate credit, establish contractual priorities, and allocate raw materials to aid the national defense.

Obama's shock move in quietly, and with little fanfare, issuing this Executive Order has disturbed many in America including the highly respected Zerohedge.Com blog that noted the terrifying expansion of US federal power over its own citizens and, in part, stated: "Taken in conjunction with the NSA's new Utah spy center (which will collect and archive the complete contents of every email, tweet, Facebook post, Google search, phone call, and text message) and the National Defense Authorization Act, it's clear that the Obama administration is expecting trouble from within."

According to this report, however, the most chilling part of Obama's Executive Order was his giving power over all water recourses in the United States to his Department of Defense instead of to emergency, health and/or agricultural agencies one would normally expect to be put in charge of this most vital resource.

Most interesting to note about Obama's move, this report continues, is that six days after (22 March) giving his military control over all water resources in America, and on World Water Day no less, US intelligence officials released a report warning that the "struggle over access to water supplies could spark global war in the next few decades."

To how far off the first of these "water wars" may be, this report warns, is on the very doorstop of America as its southern neighbor Mexico is experiencing its worst drought in modern history that has already destroyed some 7.5 million acres (3 million hectares) of cultivable land (an area about the size of Belgium), killed 60,000 head of cattle and weakened 2 million more livestock, and pushed food prices up at least 35% in the past 12 months alone.

Of even greater concern to the US, this report continues, are the growing signs of "water wars" being prepared for among the various American States, especially those in its western regions whose populations are continuing to grow while their access to water is being cut due to drought and mismanagement.

Even more chilling, this report notes, is that whatever the Obama regime is planning for, US authorities are certainly preparing for the worst as their Homeland Security Department this past fortnight put in an order for 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammunition for its internal police forces and reports are now surfacing that their government has further told the makers of 5.56 caliber military surplus ammunition to stop selling to venders and civilians as they need it all for themselves.

Not just the Obama regime is arming itself to the teeth either, this report says, as new reports from the United States show that its citizens are in equal measure buying guns and ammunition in such unprecedented numbers that Sturm, Ruger & Co., one of the world's largest arms manufacturers, had to suspend new orders after taking orders for more than 1 million guns in the first three months of the year.

With US Troops described as "stressed to the breaking point" from Americas over decade-long wars, and growing numbers of US Marines said to be turning against their Commander-In-Chief Obama, especially after they were disarmed in a war zone for the first time in history last week before meeting with US Defense Secretary Leon Panetta during his trip to Helmond Province, Afghanistan, Russian experts note that America may indeed be "ripe" for a revolution.

Those Russian experts in this report warning that the US may be nearing a revolution note the many similarities now occurring in Americas "Occupy Protests" that mirror those of the "Arab Spring" that have brought down governments throughout North Africa and the Middle East with the "last stage" to occur when Obama regime forces begin arming those forces loyal to them in order to completely destroy the United States once and for all.

Not being remembered by many Americans is that during his 2008 campaign for the US Presidency Obama said: "We cannot continue to rely only on our military…we've got to have a civilian security force just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded.  We cannot continue to rely only on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives we've set."

To how Obama would raise his private army it is believed by many to have been included in his controversial national health care law called "Obamacare" and as we can, in part, read as reported by the Canada Free Press:

"Section 5210 of the Patient's Protection and Affordable Care Act (a.k.a. Obamacare) may be the beginning of Obama's civilian security force.  This section amends Section 203 of the U.S. Public Health Service Act.  Why it was included in the massive health care bill is a question in search of meaningful answers.  Judge Andrew Napolitano from FOX News has a few questions of his own.

The new law says "The purpose of the Ready Reserve Corps is to fulfill the need to have additional Commissioned Corps personnel available on short notice (similar to the uniformed service's reserve program) to assist regular Commissioned Corps personnel to meet both routine public health and emergency response missions."

The law requires the Ready Reserve to participate in "routine training" to meet the general and specific needs of the Commissioned Corps.  The Ready Reserve "shall" be ready for involuntary calls to active duty.  The Ready Reserve must be prepared to respond to orders from the President to go anywhere in the country, or anywhere outside the country."

To whatever may be the final outcome in these events it is not in our knowing, other than to state the obvious that when any governments internal security police orders half-a-billion rounds of ammunition they are most certainly note preparing for peaceful times… so neither should anyone else.

U.N. Policy Paper Outlines 7 Building Blocks for Heavy-Handed World Government

Posted: 24 Mar 2012 10:41 AM PDT

The fact that the world is being restructured from decentralized diversity to collectivized hierarchy by an authoritarian regime cloaked in green trappings can hardly be disputed.

The final push toward the next and perhaps final phase may be announced this June at the 2012 U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Scientific American editorial by Gary Stix highlights a policy article written by several dozen scientists that appeared online March 15 in the journal Science.

The conclusions reached by the scientists, as well as the editorial from a staff member of Scientific American are incredibly unscientific and fly in the face of the many thousands of independent scientists and researchers who have refuted the theory of man-made global warming.  Regardless, this small group pushes ahead with their suggestions that the only way to combat such a global catastrophe is of course to solve it through global government.  And not just any global government, but one that Scientific American suggests should be “heavy-handed (in its) transnational enforcement powers.”

The policy paper entitled, “Navigating the Anthropocene: Improving Earth System Governance” is one of the most blatantly authoritarian among the incrementally more open policy papers that we are witnessing, as global governance continues on its runaway path in the name of saving humanity from itself.

Opening with a summary, the conclusions and solutions are clear:

Science assessments indicate that human activities are moving several of Earth’s sub-systems outside the range of natural variability typical for the previous 500,000 years (1,2). Human societies must now change course and steer away from critical tipping points in the Earth system that might lead to rapid and irreversible change (3). This requires fundamental reorientation and restructuring of national and international institutions toward more effective Earth system governance and planetary stewardship. (Source)

The full text of the article is available for a fee which we paid for access, and we can tell you that it is centered around the “Building Blocks” that form the foundation for the edifice of a one-world government.  These building blocks have been repeated throughout globalist literature, so this is nothing necessarily new, but the fact that they fall within the context of at best a hotly disputed assertion that humans are to blame for catastrophically altering their environment — namely through climate change — indicates that their agenda must move forward, factually based or not. (All section titles are paraphrased.)

Consolidating global agencies – The globalist framework has been established through agencies like the United Nations, World Trade Organization, World Bank, and their countless tentacles, which have formed a web of incredibly corrupt and inefficient bureaucracy that most thinking people would love to see eradicated.  However, as opposed to dismantling these agencies as complete failures, there is a proposal to unify them further under the green umbrella.  The suggested organization would be called the UN Sustainable Development Council.

Integrating ‘Sustainable Development’ to the local level (Agenda 21) – Once such a council is established, it will efficiently and heavy-handedly dictate down the pyramid of global control until it reaches each and every community.  This is the stated objective of Agenda 21 as a way to transform the 21st century by centralizing power and eradicating individual freedom.  When this goal is understood, then it becomes quite clear that when we see similar rules put in place for disparate nations in the areas of food, banking, and the eradication of civil liberties, it is part of this coordinated plan toward planetary governance. Local communities become viewed merely as outposts for resistance and must be made to comply with the dictates of the pyramid’s capstone.

Bringing emerging technologies under global control – Interestingly, geo-engineering is openly mentioned here, despite it being still considered a fringe conspiracy theory under the name of Chemtrails.  Nanotechnology, biotechnology, and other scientific endeavors must also be brought under global control by a worldwide council that presumably will lay claim to this intellectual capital and resource generation.  There is discussion about a framework of conventions to theoretically ensure that all participants adhere to an agreed-upon basis for research and implementation.

But has this ever really worked before?  We have a convention against the use of biological warfare; a convention against the use of most non-lethal weapons, a convention against torture, etc., and yet our world is seeing only a ramping-up these activities.  The conventions merely provide a framework for enabling the control and allocation of whatever it is that they are designed to address — rarely are they a method to prevent and deter abuse.

The creation of a global legal and economic framework – This is one of the most insidious, as it literally encourages local laws and economic policies to be rewritten with the goal of furthering a global matrix of interconnected bureaucracies that all but eradicate the ability of local communities (or countries) to opt-out of this dictatorial mission.  The paper uses the word “discrimination” in a most accurate way to promote only green initiatives.  There are no specifics given, but we only need to look at the “green” and “alternative” businesses that have been promoted (and invested in) by government to see that most have been an abject failure, leading to the bankruptcy of several in near-record time.  It is much too early for the proposal of the largest government the world has ever known to lay claim as being experts in resource management and alternative energy.  If this is put into effect on a global scale based on the small-scale examples we have seen so far, we will witness the utter implosion of the global economy, and a mass reduction in the standard of living for the average person, as well as the inability for entrepreneurs to circumvent such a system if it should fail. (Source)

Consensus-based decision making becomes majority rule – This is yet another very dangerous concept, as is the antithesis to a functioning republic.  The paper highlights the “efficiency in decision-making” that is the hallmark of majority-based rule, versus that of a consensus.  And there is a reason for this — because every individual has an innate right to participate in the very decisions which will most impact their life.  The decision for global governance and sweeping policy changes right down to the local level are the last decisions that should be made hastily.  Just one example was the mass agreement to the validity of man-made global warming, which resulted in a carbon credits market, and other transformative policies, only to be swayed the other direction when evidence of a cover-up known as Climategate revealed a distorted picture of the true scientific data, as well as the hidden political and economic agendas.  A free society is indeed a transparent one, but that will never flourish under a panel of experts reporting to select councils and governed by regents, because the independent researcher has no place in such a system.

Legitimacy and accountability of stronger intergovernmental institutions – Here they admit that global governance removes local sovereignty, and try to work their way around the issue by proposing a representative system, no doubt to give the illusion that the people have a say in what gets decided. “Global governance through UN-type institutions tends to give a larger role to international and domestic bureaucracies, at the cost of national parliaments and the direct involvement of citizens.” They claim that accountability and decision-making will be strengthened “through special rights enshrined in agreements or stronger participation in councils that govern resources and in commissions that hear complaints.”  They also call for more transparency as an “effective accountability mechanism”.  Yet, the entire report is based on cherry-picked and unproven science. Finally, this section also discusses accounting for “imbalances in the strength” among different countries, probably to make sure the right countries (the G20) actually have the power, much like the U.N. Security Council.

The creation of global financial instruments – I think we all have learned enough about the inherent toxicity of “financial instruments” such as derivatives and the carbon market scam.  The paper alludes to an “emissions market” which will be employed to ensure that poorer countries receive financial support through a system of “equity and fairness.”  When has this happened even once within any initiative promoted by globalist interests?  The World Trade Organization has been an abject failure; the World Health Organization has been a disaster; and the IMF has been perhaps the most blatantly corrupt and predatory of them all.  These systems do nothing to empower and support the poor; they are there to create the very terms and compliance that is required to co-opt their resources and productivity and loot sovereign nations. (Source)

To enshrine these building blocks of world governance, it is proposed that there needs to be a “constitutional moment” in the reordering of world politics, similar to what followed WWII.  It is disingenuously implied that the international norms set for human rights serve as an example for a similarly standardized approach to counter the destruction of the environment.

It is admitted that the birthplace of Agenda 21, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (1992), will once again see a “test of politcal will” to implement drastic changes.  Those changes will continue to radically build upon the reduction in national sovereignty that we have witnessed across the board.  They are changes which will no doubt continue to erode individual freedom and contribute to the massive financial hardship we are being subjected to through authoritarian, centralized rule by a fascistic cabal of bankers and politicians that collude to keep humanity from realizing its true potential.

There must be mass outrage to such a degree that even their plan for “majority rule” cannot succeed.  A rising tide of protest and civil disobedience can easily smash each one of the building blocks above.  The Achilles Heel of their plan is resistance to any initiative that would remove the power of local communities to support and sustain themselves, and instead force sworn fealty to a group of overlords who admit to their desire to impose a scientific dictatorship to be ruled by councils of experts.  It has been these so-called experts, at the behest of governments throughout history, who have led to nothing short of a mass murder machine.  We need to keep that in mind as they attempt to guilt trip us into compliance with their “humanitarian” agenda.

Global water war threat by 2030 – US intelligence

Posted: 24 Mar 2012 03:34 AM PDT

Nations will cut off rivers to prevent their enemies having access to water downstream, terrorists will blow up dams, and states that cannot provide water for their citizens will collapse. This is the future – as painted by a top US security report.

The Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI), the organization that oversees US intelligence agencies such as the CIA and FBI, was commissioned by President Barack Obama to examine the impact of water scarcity worldwide on US security.

And while the prospect of "water wars" has been touted for decades, it may start to become reality within a decade. The ODNI predicts that by 2040 water demand will outstrip current supply by 40 per cent.

Impoverished volatile states will be worst off

Water shortages "will hinder the ability of key countries to produce food and generate energy, posing a risk to global food markets and hobbling economic growth." North Africa, the Middle East and South Asia will be hit the hardest, the report states.

And while the coming shortage is a manageable problem for richer countries, it is a deadly "destabilizing factor" in poorer ones. As a rule, economically disadvantaged countries are already prone to political, social and religious turmoil, and failure to provide water for farmers and city dwellers can be the spark for wider "state failure." 

Among those most vulnerable to this scenario are Sudan, Pakistan and Iraq, which are all locked in debilitating civil conflicts, and Somalia, which has effectively ceased to function as a state. ODNI envisages countries restricting water for its own citizens to "pressure populations and suppress separatist elements." The report predicts many ordinary citizens will have to resort to the kind of purification tablets currently used by soldiers and hikers to obtain clean water.

Most dangerously, there are whole clusters of unstable countries fighting for the same waterways.

The report lists the Nile, which runs through Uganda, Ethiopia, Sudan and Egypt, the Jordan, which runs through Israel and several Arab countries, and the Indus, which is shared by Pakistan and India.

These areas are managed by special commissions, and the report states that "historically, water tensions have led to more water-sharing agreements than violent conflicts." But once there is not enough water to go around, these fragile pacts may collapse, with "more powerful upstream nations impeding or cutting off downstream flow."

Even without outright fighting, the ODNI says countries will use water as a tool of political leverage, similar to how gas and oil are used today.

Infrastructure projects will become increasingly politicized: "States will also use their inherent ability to construct and support major water projects to obtain regional influence or preserve their water interests," the report claims.

Laos' proposed $3.5 billion Mekong Dam has already been the subject of an international dispute with Cambodia and Vietnam, who say the dam will obliterate their fisheries and agriculture.

Water terrorism threat

And even international compromise is not likely to be enough to ensure water safety.

"Physical infrastructure, including dams, has been used as a convenient and high-publicity target by extremists, terrorists, and rogue states, threatening substantial harm and this will become more likely beyond the next 10 years."

The report states that an attack on a single point in a water supply, such as a canal or desalinization plant is sufficient to deprive hundreds of thousands of clean water. In return, governments will have to implement costly safety measures that are likely to be of limited use, due to the extensive length of rivers that have to be protected.

The ODNI says there is a decade to tackle the problems before they spiral out of control. It suggests revising international water treaties and investing in superior water purification technologies that will make the increasingly scarce resource plentiful again.

Sustainability in Perspective

Posted: 18 Mar 2012 11:33 AM PDT

"There are only two options: Humanity's leaders take responsibility to manage evolution in a sustainable manner, or the failures and systemic fissures will crush mankind and the planet will degenerate until humanity chokes from no air."

All the following systems of societies are in a complex interrelation that mutually influences everything. The state of humanity and the planet will worsen exponentially, especially due to the rise of the earth population, the extreme exploitation of resources, and the manifold contamination. Minds will be dehumanized and bodies deformed. We have to consider that the causes of the dire state of humanity and the planet today came in effect 10-15 years ago; and the damaging factors today we will experience in 10-15 years. This momentum is completely ignored today. All systems of human life have their own level of sustainability and are in interdependences with each other system.

Today 2012:

  • You are 60-70 years old: you may live another 20-30 years and you will experience the world in 2030-2040
  • You are 50-60 years old: you may live another 30-40 years and you will experience the world in 2040-2050
  • You are 40-50 years old: you may live another 40-50 years and you will experience the world in 2050-2060
  • You are 30-40 years old: you may live another 50-60 years and you will experience the world in 2060-2070
  • You are 20-30 years old: you may live another 60-70 years and you will experience the world in 2070-2080
  • You are 10-20 years old: you may live another 70-80 years and you will experience the world in 2080-2090
  • You are   1-10 years old: you may live another 80-90 years and you will experience the world in 2090-2100

If every human being on this earth continues living as usual and if unimaginable drastic political measures are not taken globally within 7 years, then you must expect to experience the following picture of the world:

The earth population will reach 12-14 billion at the end of the century; but there is not enough food and water.
Poverty and misery in developing countries as well as in the Western world will increase dramatically.
The distribution of wealth will take on new extremes: 0.5% super-rich, 9.5% well off and 90% brutal poverty.
Unemployment and underemployment will reach 1.5-2bn people; this is the systemic destruction of mankind.
Physical illnesses and deformed human beings will increase due to the all-embracing cocktail of contamination.
Mental diseases from stupidity to naivety, narcissism to neuroticism and psychosis will dehumanize society.
Human rights, ethics and values are a basket case, abused to destroy countries, folks, and to justify wars.
Public education excludes most human realities, and do not include any real requirements necessary to master life.
Big religions are the worst scam mankind has experienced in its history; extreme fanaticism is to be expected.
Global lifestyles have fully lost their genuine culture; merely expressing compensation, lunacy or a fight for survival.
Contamination increasing exponentially: Chemicals, pharmaceutics, fine dust in the air, soil, water, and food chain.
Unimaginable mountains of waste and sewage from 7bn and later 12-14bn people will destroy all human life.
Increasing climate change will produce unimaginable disasters: drought, desertification, tornados, and floods, etc.
Rising sea levels will steadily eliminate beaches, islands, land, immense deltas, and hundreds of big cities.
All eco-systems are damaged and will be irreparably damaged and destroy all food chains and water reservoirs.
Nature around the globe is already damaged, increasingly destroyed and polluted to the point of no return.
Natural resources are increasingly exploited, unrecoverable; most in less than 30 years poised to extinction.
A huge number of species are disappearing and with that the complex balance of natural life will be destroyed.
Natural catastrophes will become bigger and more frequent; and destroy huge areas, urbanizations and life.
Inhumane living environments will suffocate most of mankind transforming them into dehumanized creatures.
Tourism will vanish due to financial collapses; leisure will mean hanging around, and crime will be the new sport.
Decreasing agricultural land, poisoned by chemicals; food will be 95% industrialized for degraded humans.
Transport and car traffic will absorb enormous resources; contaminating every vivid being and the entire planet.
Energy demand will enormously increase and its production and use will increasingly generate toxic emissions.
The production of goods requires huge resources and produces unbelievable amounts of collateral toxic damages.
The media in the hands of a few elite thoroughly brainwashes, manipulates, and dehumanizes billions of humans.
Financial institutions and large corporations operate mad businesses with brutally disastrous consequences.
Political systems will revert to fascism, dictatorships, and police states with absolutely inhumane management.
Politicians and all kind of leaders will be the enslaved protagonists controlled, managed, and paid for by the elite.
Certain leaders, driven by religious psychosis, are ready to eliminate their own followers and billions more.
State administrations will operate with a 100% control of their citizens 24/7 and with extremely rigid regulations.
Central banks and rating agencies are already the main tools of the elite to destroy entire countries and folks.
Certain private banks are responsible for wars, hunger, misfortune and the direful misery of billions of people.
The astronomic levels of debt cannot even be paid back in 200 years and will choke any efforts for change.
Wars: Militarism and immense wars will explode around the globe and produce frightening suffering everywhere.
Law (national, international) will serve the elite, the governments, and the corporations in order to rule humanity.
Crimes and prison: crimes will be a daily environment and prisons will be managed by corporations for profit.
Trouble spots around the globe will dramatically increase and produce irremediable suffering and hate.

Sustainability in perspective: today sustainability barely exists in all the systems of human life and in the nearer future there will be absolutely no sustainability in all the global systems that could enable human's evolution!

There is only one man that knows the path of the sustainable solutions.

Either you want him or the end of humanity is foreseeable.

Millions Of Americans Preparing For Doomsday

Posted: 17 Mar 2012 02:05 PM PDT

All over America, there are millions of Americans that are quietly preparing for doomsday.  They are turning spare rooms into long-term food storage pantries, they are planting survival gardens, they are converting their homes over to alternative sources of energy, they are taking self-defense courses and they are stocking up on just about anything you can imagine.  They are called “preppers”, and their numbers have absolutely exploded in recent years.  In fact, you might be living next door to one and never even realize it.  According to a recent Daily Mail article, there are approximately 3 million preppers in the United States today.  Others believe that the true number is significantly higher than that.  This movement has become so popular that there are now even television shows being done about preppers.  The most popular is probably “Doomsday Preppers” on the National Geographic Channel.  This movement is still growing and is not going to go away any time soon.  In fact, as the world continues to become even more unstable it is likely that a lot more Americans will find themselves becoming preppers in the years ahead.

So what exactly are all these people so concerned about?  Exactly why are there millions of Americans that are feverishly preparing for doomsday?

Well, the truth is that you will never find two preppers that are exactly alike.  Some are deeply concerned about the potential for natural disasters and believe that we are now entering into a time when there will be catastrophic earth changes.  Other preppers believe that terrorism is the most significant threat to our way of life.  Killer pandemics, an EMP attack, World War III, martial law, solar megastorms, asteroid strikes and societal chaos are some of the other things that some preppers are worried about.

Of course an economic collapse is one of the biggest concerns for preppers, and without a doubt the U.S. economy is deeply troubled.  A collapse of the financial system would change all of our lives permanently.

But it isn’t just preppers that are concerned about these things.

A recent survey conducted by National Geographic asked Americans the following question….

“Which of the following, if any, do you think might happen in the United States in the next 25 years? Please choose all that apply.”

These were the results….

Significant Earthquake 64%
Significant Hurricane 63%
Terrorist Attack 55%
Financial Collapse 51%
Significant Blackout 37%
Pandemic, Such as From a Super-Virus 29%
Nuclear Fallout 14%
None of These 13%

Obviously there are a whole lot of people out there that feel as though we are heading for some really bad stuff.

So if hard times are coming, why not prepare for them?

After all, none of us want to end up like the poor people of New Orleans in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.  Large numbers of people were herded into the Superdome and food and water ran out really fast.  There was rampant looting of stores and people were shooting each other in the streets.  It was mass chaos.

The following is what one Australian blogger experienced while staying in the Superdome during Hurricane Katrina….

Last night was horrendous. I heard shouting, and drinks machines being smashed. There's no sanitation and it's so smelly. My hair is greasy and I feel a wreck. There are crack alleys among the maze of corridors. The lights are broken in the loos which, as well as being disgusting, have become dangerous, so we now only go as a big group.

More people are arriving, and the dome is like a refugee camp. I see two soldiers carrying a corpse and we hear there are more dead in the basement.

As an article in the New York Times from that time period detailed, food and water were in very short supply and those cramped into the Superdome were rapidly becoming impatient….

Desperation was in the air. Danielle Shelby tugged at a reporter’s arm. “I have a handicapped daughter,” she said. “She’s over there with her wheelchair. She’s hot. We don’t have any water. I’m afraid she’s going to have a seizure.”

Others crowded around. “I’ve been in the food line twice, and every time I get to the front they tell me they don’t have any left,” said Juanita McFerrin, 80.

Later on in that same article, we are told that there were fights, rapes and at least one suicide in the Superdome during that time….

It got worse. Ms. Rousell recalled hearing a loud bang Tuesday afternoon as the body of a man slapped the concrete at the edge of the football field in a fatal suicidal plunge, after he apparently learned that his home had been destroyed. Others told of fights that broke out in food lines, and of a husband and wife who slugged each other in a wild argument.

Several residents said they had heard of children being raped, though it was not clear whether anyone reported such incidents to the authorities, and no officials could be found who could confirm the accounts.

To get an even better idea of what life in New Orleans was like in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, just check out this video.

Within just a few days food, water and supplies started pouring into New Orleans and things started slowly getting back to normal, but imagine what things would look like in this country if we had to deal with a national disaster that stretched on for months or even years?

Many preppers are not taking any chances.  Many are absolutely determined to be able to take care of their families and friends no matter what the years ahead may bring.

ABC News recently profiled one prepper named Tim Ralston….

Tim Ralston, a married father of two from Arizona, is one such “prepper.”

“There’s a lot of different things that could happen,” Ralston said. “For me, I look at prepping as kind of like insurance. You have car insurance, health insurance, life insurance.”

Call it Apocalypse insurance. Ralston turned his family’s two-car garage into a staging area. Inside is a trailer, which he keeps packed and ready to go at all times, stockpiles of freeze-dried food, including cartons of canned chicken with a shelf life of 15 years, survival gear, such as a system for purifying polluted water, first aid kits and lots of weapons and ammunition. His son has his own AK-47.

Some preppers are going to the extreme and are spending huge amounts of money on their prepping.

CNN recently profiled one Australian prepper that has spent about $350,000preparing for doomsday….

Bast has spent about $5,000 on stockpiles of food and water, and $11,000 on equipment including gas cookers, generators, batteries, water purifiers and solar power. He also purchased roughly an acre of land that’s a 75-minute drive from Melbourne and 1,500 feet above sea level (in order to stay high and dry in case of a flood or tsunami). He has built a house there, as well as a bunker to serve as his “safe spot” in the event of an emergency. Together, the land, buildings and bunker have cost him a total of about $330,000.

He’s also spent $10,000 on an 8-year old Toyota HiLux pickup truck to drive to his safe spot.

But the truth is that prepping does not have to be expensive.

The key is to start by focusing on the five basics….

1) Food

2) Water

3) Shelter

4) Energy

5) Self-Defense

There are some practical things that just about anyone can do even if you don’t have a lot of money.

For example, when you go to the store try to pick up a few extra items that are on sale and add them to your supplies.  If you rotate your food supplies, they won’t go bad.

In addition, just about anyone can plant a garden.  Often fruits and vegetables are some of the most expensive items at the grocery store, and so growing a garden can end up saving you a lot of money.

Get educated.  There are dozens of prepper websites out there where you can get an education in prepping for free.  The following are a few examples of some of the excellent prepper websites that are out there today….

*Survival Blog

*American Preppers Network

*The Survival Mom

*SHTFPlan.com

*Prepper Website

*Survival 4 Christians

*Backdoor Survival

*Off Grid Survival

The truth is that our world is becoming increasingly unstable in a whole bunch of different ways and we all need to learn how to prepare for the difficult years ahead.

As the economy continues to fall apart, America is going to become a veryheartless place.  You don’t want to be caught in the middle of societal chaos without a plan.

None of us should be relying on the government to save us when things hit the fan.  We all saw what happened after Hurricane Katrina.  Those that were depending on the government were deeply disappointed.

We should all try to become as independent of the system as we can, because the system is failing.  In the years ahead there might not be anybody to help you and your family, so you need to be working hard right now to ensure that you and your family will be taken care of.

Yes, as you may have guessed by now, I am a prepper too.  My wife and I moved to an entirely different state and totally changed our lifestyle to prepare for what is coming.

Hopefully this article will inspire many more Americans to prepare for what is coming.  A great economic collapse is on the horizon and time is rapidly running out.

Israel will not “play with its destiny” by attacking a great power like Iran

Posted: 17 Mar 2012 01:58 PM PDT

Iranian Foreign Minister Ali Akbar Salehi warned on Thursday that any Israeli strike on Iran's nuclear installations would lead to the annihilation of the regime in a week.

"If Israel ever, ever makes this mistake – that will set the time for the end of Israel. The Israelis are well aware of this," Salehi told the Danish television TV2.

"What is Israel?," said Salehi. "It is so small that it wouldn't last one week in a real war. Not even one week."

Salehi, the former director of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran, said Iran would respond "very forcefully" if its nuclear sites come under attack by Israel.

Iranian Parliament speaker Ali Larijani also said on Saturday that "Israel would not dare to attack Iran."

The regime will not "play with its destiny" by attacking a great power like Iran, Larijani stated.

At least 27 dead in Damascus bombings. Russians man Syrian air defenses

Posted: 17 Mar 2012 10:54 AM PDT

Syrian State TV reported two car bombing attacks on Air Force Intelligence and Security Police Headquarters killing at least 27 people and wounding 97 Saturday morning, March 17, accusing "terrorist gangs." In a third attack, a bomb was planted on a bus carrying members of the Palestinian Liberation Army in the Al Yarmouk suburb of the Syrian capital. The pro-Iranian PLA operates under Syrian military intelligence command.

DEBKAfile reports: Western military experts tracking the various centers of violence in the Middle East in the last eight days see a line connecting the outbreak of missile fire from Gaza to southern Israel, which erupted on March 9, the blasts which hit Damascus on March 17.

They were also linked to several more incidents in the wide region of Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Lebanon, Iran, and Syria as the United States, NATO members and Israel intensified their naval movements in the Mediterranean, the Red Sea and the Gulf of Aden.

Those sources highlight three military developments, all involving Iran, in just over a week:

1.  Their initial premise is that the car bombings in Damascus Saturday were the work of foreign hands, possibly set up by Saudi Arabia or Qatar to revive the anti-Assad revolt, after the regime smashed the armed rebellion in its last stronghold in Idlib.  The rebels scattered, many of them to Turkey, although the protest movement was not stamped out.

This defeat went down painfully in Saudi Arabia and Qatar, the rebels' foremost arms and fund suppliers, and they may have struck Assad's strategic support centers Saturday to inject new life in the armed revolt.

The fact that a pro-Iranian Palestinian group in Damascus was also targeted by anti-Assad Arab powers was no more a coincidence than the targeting of the pro-Iranian Jihad Islami in Gaza by the Israeli Air Force last week.

2.  The airlift carrying aid to Assad last month, the biggest Iran had ever organized, was critical in helping him win out over the revolt.

As OC US Central Command Gen. James Mattis explained March 3 to the Senate Armed Services Committee: They (Iranians) are working earnestly to keep Assad in power. They have flown in experts. They are flying in weapons. It is a full-throated effort by Iran to keep Assad there and oppressing his own people."

DEBKAfile's military sources add: This effort was made possible by Baghdad's permission to fly over Iraq directly to Syria. According to our Washington sources, US President Barack Obama tried interceding with Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki to block the Iranian transport flights to Syria only to be turned down.

The massive air transport of equipment on behalf of Bashar Assad served also as a practice maneuver for Iran to staged airlifts of hardware to Middle East arenas of interest in other potential conflicts, such as hostilities between Syria and Lebanon and Israel.

This week, therefore, the Iranians took active part in two Middle East conflicts in Syria and the Gaza Strip, where Israelis were partly consoled by the performance of their homemade Iron Dome interceptor in blowing up a large number of Iran-supplied Grad missiles before they landed on their cities.

Iran's heavy involvement in a third area Yemen attracted less attention. Tehran is keeping up a supply of arms and cash to northern and southern Yemeni tribes fighting the government with a view to gaining a foothold in Yemen ports and access to the Red Sea and Bab al-Mandeb Sraits, the meeting point between the Gulf of Aden, the Red Sea and the Indian Ocean.

3.  Tuesday, March 13, Deputy Russian Defense Minister Alexei Antonov vigorously denied accusations that Russian Special Forces were stationed in Syria. He would only admit that "Syria has technical experts of the Russian military," going on to explain: "For example, where we export tanks… we have to send technical experts to train our foreign counterparts to use the equipment."

Intelligence sources confirm that the Russian official mentioned tanks, but not the 50 Pantsyr-S1 interceptor batteries, now the backbone of Syrian air and missile defenses, which Moscow sold Syria or that Russian military crews have since mid-January taken over their operation from Syrian personnel.

This is what Gen. Martin Dempsey, Chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, meant when he pointed out that "Syria’s air defenses were five times more sophisticated as those in Libya, making airstrikes riskier and more complicated."

So if the US, any NATO power, Turkey, Saudi Arabia or Qatar, is inclined to embark on military operations to enforce security zones in Syria under a protective umbrella of no fly-zones on the Libyan model, Gen. Dempsey warned them they would be lethally challenged by a dense network of sophisticated Russian-made air defenses operated by Russian experts. This network also shielded the Iranian airlift to Syria from attack.

Scientists warn of Planetary Emergency

Posted: 17 Mar 2012 07:39 AM PDT

Scientists told UK MPs this week that the possibility of a major methane release triggered by melting Arctic ice constitutes a “planetary emergency”.

The Arctic could be sea-ice free each September within a few years.

Wave energy pioneer Stephen Salter has shown that pumping seawater sprays into the atmosphere could cool the planet.

The Edinburgh University academic has previously suggested whitening clouds using specially-built ships.

At a meeting in Westminster organised by the Arctic Methane Emergency Group (Ameg), Prof Salter told MPs that the situation in the Arctic was so serious that ships might take too long.

“I don’t think there’s time to do ships for the Arctic now,” he said.

“We’d need a bit of land, in clean air and the right distance north… where you can cool water flowing into the Arctic.”

Favoured locations would be the Faroes and islands in the Bering Strait, he said.

Towers would be constructed, simplified versions of what has been planned for ships.

In summer, seawater would be pumped up to the top using some kind of renewable energy, and out through the nozzles that are now being developed at Edinburgh University, which achieve incredibly fine droplet size.

In an idea first proposed by US physicist John Latham, the fine droplets of seawater provide nuclei around which water vapour can condense.

This makes the average droplet size in the clouds smaller, meaning they appear whiter and reflect more of the Sun’s incoming energy back into space, cooling the Earth.

The area of Arctic Ocean covered by ice each summer has declined significantly over the last few decades as air and sea temperatures have risen.

For each of the last four years, the September minimum has seen about two-thirds of the average cover for the years 1979-2000, which is used a baseline. The extent covered at other times of the year has also been shrinking.

What more concerns some scientists is the falling volume of ice.

Analysis from the University of Washington, in Seattle, using ice thickness data from submarines and satellites, suggests that Septembers could be ice-free within just a few years.

Iran to fire 11,000 missiles at US, Israel if attacked: Iranian envoy

Posted: 10 Mar 2012 09:25 AM PST

The Iranian ambassador to Lebanon says his country has the capability to fire thousands of missiles at enemy bases in case of an attack against the Islamic Republic.

Ghazanfar Roknabadi said Iran is keeping a watchful eye on the slightest possibility of a military threat, and would fire 11,000 missiles into identified positions in the United States, Israel or their interests worldwide, should its nuclear installations come under attack.

He said Iran is following a defensive stance, stressing, however, that the country would respond with full force to any potential attack.

Iran's Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said on November 27, 2011, that Israel will not have a minimal chance of survival after venturing a military attack against Iran, as Iranian armed forces will pound all of Israel with thousands of missiles.

"The enemy must answer this question. How long of a battle and the loss of how many of its warships and vessels has it prepared itself for if it attacks Iran?"

He advised the US and its allies to realize Iran’s might and know that in the event of a war, the Islamic Republic will teach the Americans "what war really is and what soldiers are supposed to be like. "

The United States, Israel, and some of their allies accuse Tehran of pursuing military objectives in its nuclear program. Washington and Tel Aviv have repeatedly threatened Tehran with the “option” of a military strike against its atomic facilities.

Iran argues that as a signatory to the Non-Proliferation Treaty and a member of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), it has every right to develop and acquire nuclear technology for peaceful purposes.

The IAEA has conducted numerous inspections of Iran’s nuclear facilities but has never found any evidence indicating that Tehran’s nuclear energy program has been diverted to nuclear weapons production.
