What does it mean when a hawk comes to you?

Hawks keep showing up for me…in my front tree, driving in front of my car, flying above me, etc. And I keep having dreams of flying. So I searched for some meaning and found this information. Just thought I would share with my fellow bird lovers and animal totem enthusiasts.

What does it mean when a hawk comes to you?

I’ve had hawk fly right by my deck (very unusual) often these last weeks, and now a hawk has come and sat on my deck post and watched me take a picture of him; I was so excited thus the blur. I’m just happy I got this shot of him with my camera. He sat there quite awhile.

Humm! Not that everything that happens to me is significant but I thought, I wonder what it means to the indians or folklore people? So I asked the above question online and found these answers:

“The hawk is a messenger bird. Usually when we see a hawk it means to pay attention because a message is coming to you. Hawks represent clear sightedness, being observant, our far memory and guardianship. They also bring courage, wisdom, illumination…

Electro Magnetic Mitigation

Repost

 

I hope that you are already aware of the fact that the multitude of wireless devices in use today emit harmful radio and electro-magnetic frequencies.  If not, just Google “cell phone dangers” and start reading.  The more sensitive your body and nervous system is, the more you will feel the negative effects of cell phones, wireless routers, cordless phones, “smart” meters, etc in your home.  We all suffer from the transmissions of these devices, whether or not we notice their harmful side-effects.

The purpose of this short article is to inspire you to take action to reduce your exposure to these frequencies by sharing with you what I have done in my own home.

Elimination and Reduction

Technically, I started this process over 15 years ago by getting rid of my microwave oven.  I don’t even think about that any more, it’s just part of life for me now.

My more recent mitigation efforts began with turning off the wireless feature on my router.  This means that ALL computers in the home are connected directly to the router via Ethernet cables.  Any laptop usage is done with the laptop on a table or desk so that it is not directly on a lap, and the wireless on the laptop is disabled, of course.

Next, I removed all cordless phones and replaced them with corded phones.  It’s like the 80s all over again, but with better hair.  Seriously though, going back to land line phones reduced a huge amount of RF pollution in our home.  I know a lot of you reading this probably don’t even have a landline anymore and you rely totally on your cell phone.  I urge you to get a landline again with a corded phone and turn the cell phone OFF when you are at home.  (Yes, totally off…I promise it will be ok.)

I recommend using your cell phone as little as possible.  I have a cell phone that is always off unless I need to make a call while I am away from home.  This is the only usage that it receives.

Also, if you live in a place with a “smart” meter, move.  Seriously.  If that is not an option, look into ways to shield yourself from the (not so) smart meter.

Finally in the elimination process, I got rid of all compact fluorescent light bulbs and replaced them with standard incandescent bulbs.  CFLs produce much more dirty electricity than a standard bulb, they actually wear out faster in normal on and off usage, and pose a variety of health risks.  (LED bulbs are also a good option, as they do not produce much dirty electricity.)

Mitigation

The best thing I have done all year was to invest in “Microsurge Filters” for our home’s electrical outlets.  Yes, I know it’s only mid-February, but this has had a huge impact in our home.  These devices filter out high-frequency EM waves from the electrical wiring in the walls, drastically reducing levels of harmful EMF in a home.  This was a significant expense, but it was worth the cost.

When doing this type of mitigation, the first thing needed is a “Microsurge Meter” that plugs directly into an outlet and gives a reading of the “Graham-Stetzer Units” in the power line.  This is a measure of the magnitude of the voltage surge on the line.  Higher numbers on the meter are bad, lower numbers are good.

A “typical” high reading would be in the 500-600 GS unit range, and with proper filtration, it should be under 50, with 25 being the ideal level.  The readings in my home were 800-1100 depending on location in the house, and it took 25 filters to get readings on all sockets down in the 25-40 range.  My office alone took five filters to mitigate, and the bedroom required four.

Thanks to these filters, we went from a very bad EMF environment to a very clean one.  Now our home in the woods really feels like it is in the woods!  It feels like being in a remote location where there is no electric power at all.

My wife and I both noticed the effect right away, and I can assure you that it was not a placebo.  I honestly didn’t expect to feel a tangible effect at all, but these filters made a huge difference.  The best analogy I can give is that it was kind of like the sense of relief that one feels when a noisy refrigerator stops running, except that it was EMF based, not sound based.

I purchased “Greenwave Filters” along with the Stetzerizer Microsurge Meter.  I talked with the owner of the store before the purchase and he was very helpful in answering my questions as well as resolving a shipping glitch with his supplier after my purchase.  I interacted with him as a normal customer, and I didn’t tell him that I might send a bunch of business his way if I was happy with the products, so I can honestly say that his level of customer care was excellent.  I negotiated a lower price by buying the filters in bulk, and he was very helpful throughout the whole process, but I didn’t receive any special treatment.

The Greenwave filters are a fairly recent design, marketed as being more effective than the Stetzerizer filters, which I tested myself comparing both filters in one plug, and the Greenwave filter gave a slightly lower reading on the Stetzer Meter than the Stetzer filter did.  The GW filters also have a pass-through plug in the bottom of them so that you do not lose a plug to the filter, unlike Stetzer filters.

More Mitigation

I also have a grounding mat for use at my computer desk.  I honestly do not notice a difference from the grounding mat, but I think it is worthwhile since my computer and monitor are generating EMF fields.

That is where my mitigation process stands as of now, although I will also be replacing all dimmer switches in the house with regular switches, as dimmers generate a LOT of dirty electricity, even if the dimmer is set to maximum.  I verified this with my own testing on an outlet controlled by a dimmer switch. 

There are many more mitigation products out there that can be purchased and attached to a cell phone, cordless phone, router, etc.  I cannot speak for the efficacy of any of those products, but even if you do use them I urge you to follow the simple plan laid out in the “Elimination and Reduction” section above so that you are using the least amount of wireless devices possible. 

Feel free to comment below with the names of any mitigation devices that you have found effective.  Please avoid posting a URL, as that will get hung up in moderation until someone can get to it.

Much Love,

The Science of Kissing

kissing1

My best kiss happened the first time my husband kissed me. It was over 30 years ago but I remember it like it happened yesterday. It had such a big impact on me and I remember thinking at the time that he would be my husband some day. Isn’t it strange that the exchange of saliva can feel so pleasant and desirable?

Opinions among scholars differ as to the function and origins of kissing. One hypothesis is that the kiss has evolved as a mechanism for gathering information about potential sexual partners. A kiss brings us into close physical proximity with the other, close enough to smell and taste them. The face area is rich with glands secreting chemicals that carry genetic and immunological information. Our saliva carries hormonal messages. A person’s breath, as well as the taste of their lips and the feel of their teeth, signals things about their health and hygiene, and thus their procreative suitability.

Research also suggests that the kiss serves as other functions such as expressing and reinforcing feelings of trust and intimacy which can lead to intercourse, meaning it’s a prelude to reproduction. It is a universal language and almost every culture in the world does it.

An additional line of thinking has focused on the kiss as a means of seduction and sexual stimulation. Women’s lips resemble the labia. The practice of women around the world of coloring their lips red—a color linked to sexual arousal–suggests the role the lips play in seduction. Research has suggested that men prefer wetter kisses, with more involvement of the tongue than do women.

The tongue, it is difficult to deny, is a phallic organ. The combination of a moist open mouth and a penetrating tongue simulate intercourse quite distinctly, and give easy rise to sexual imagining and, perhaps, sexual excitement. In addition, some researchers speculate that the male preference for wet kisses is related to the fact that male saliva contains testosterone, a hormone linked to sexual arousal in both genders. A wet kiss may deposit testosterone into the woman’s mouth, thereby acting to increase her sexual arousal.

Women rank kissing as being more important in all kinds of romantic relationships than men do. Studies show that women consider the smell, taste and experience of kissing to help them decide if they want the kissing to lead to sex. Men tend to expect sex after kissing, although they are more willing than women to have intercourse without kissing.

The role of kissing in improving the quality of long-term relationships was examined several years ago by the family communications scholar Kory Floyd and his colleagues at Arizona State University. The researchers randomly assigned fifty-two participants (all involved in long-term relationships) into one of two groups and instructed the members of the experimental group to kiss more frequently with their partners for a period of six weeks.

Blood tests and questionnaire data collected before and after showed that members of the experimental group experienced decreased cholesterol, decreased stress, and improved quality of relationship. Similarly, researcher Wendy Hill of Lafayette College in Pennsylvania found a few years ago that kissing for fifteen minutes led to a significant decline in the level of stress hormone cortisol in participants.

In conclusion, kissing appears to have two main uses: in short-term relationship, the kiss is more sexual, and serves as a tool for selecting and seducing suitable sexual partners; in long-term relationships, the kiss is an expression of psychological closeness, and a means of preserving and enhancing feelings of intimacy in the relationship.

Despite the differences in attitudes towards it, kissing, it seems, benefits both genders. Generally, couples that kiss more frequently report improved and more satisfying relationships.

“Kisses are a better fate than wisdom,” wrote the poet e. e. Cummings.

So if you’re feeling stressed, perhaps go find someone to kiss for about 15 minutes…<3

Beautiful video: Dolphin stampede and Whales

As some of you know, I am very fond of dolphins. I have felt very connected to their energy for some time now. My connection became even more powerful after an energy healing session with Linda Shay who connects people with the healing frequencies of dolphins. (http://healingwithsavannah.com/2012/08/12/free-dolphin-healing-sessions/)

I love reading about these animals and thought I would share some information my daughter emailed me.

Here are thousands of dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California, three whales migrating near San Clemente, plus a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling with its mom:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bo_f8mV5khg#t=288

A quadcopter drone was used to capture this amazing video. If you watch all five minutes, you’ll see thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California, three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California, plus, toward the end, close-ups from Maui of a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom, as an escort whale stands guard nearby.

Captain Dave Anderson of Capt. Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari in Dana Point, California filmed and edited the video. He used a small inflatable boat, from which he launched and caught the drone by hand. A miss could have meant injury to him from the four propeller blades, or loss of the drone. In fact, he lost one drone on takeoff when it nicked his small VHF radio antenna and went into the water. Although he was alone and six miles offshore, Anderson says, he went into the water after it, without thinking, to retrieve the valuable footage taken on a flight half an hour earlier that morning. He wrote:

I had my hat and glasses on, I was fully clothed with long-johns on to keep warm and my cell phone and wallet in my pocket. It was a stupid move, but the copter started sinking so fast it was my only hope to get the amazing footage I had just shot.

We appreciate it, Captain Dave. It’s a wonderful video.

Bottom line: Video showing thousands of common dolphins stampeding off Dana Point, California, three gray whales migrating together down the coast off San Clemente, California, plus a newborn Humpback whale calf snuggling and playing with its mom near Maui.

India Declares Dolphins To Be “Non-Human Persons”, Dolphin Shows Banned

india-bans

India’s Ministry of Environment and Forests has decided to forbid the keeping of captive dolphins for public entertainment anywhere in the country.

In a policy statement released Friday, the ministry advised state governments to reject any proposal to establish a dolphinarium “by any person / persons, organizations, government agencies, private or public enterprises that involves import, capture of cetacean species to establish for commercial entertainment, private or public exhibition and interaction purposes whatsoever.”

Why?

“Whereas cetaceans in general are highly intelligent and sensitive, and various scientists who have researched dolphin behavior have suggested that the unusually high intelligence; as compared to other animals means that dolphins should be seen as ‘non-human persons’ and as such should have their own specific rights and is morally unacceptable to keep them captive for entertainment purpose,” the ministry said.

I was surprised to read about this the other night, since it happened back in May and somehow escaped worldwide attention and the 24 hour media hoopla. The effort to re-categorize Cetaceans (dolphins, whales, porpoises) as non-human persons has been gathering steam since a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in 2011 where a group of philosophers, conservationists, and animal behaviorists attempted to gather wide support for a Declaration of Rights for Cetaceans from the scientific community.

The Declaration:

1. Every individual cetacean has the right to life.
2. No cetacean should be held in captivity or servitude; be subject to cruel treatment; or be removed from their natural environment.
3. All cetaceans have the right to freedom of movement and residence within their natural environment.
4. No cetacean is the property of any State, corporation, human group or individual.
5. Cetaceans have the right to the protection of their natural environment.
6. Cetaceans have the right not to be subject to the disruption of their cultures.
7. The rights, freedoms and norms set forth in this Declaration should be protected under international and domestic law.

And what does it mean to say an animal has “rights”?

“Unlike[…] positive rights, such as the ‘right’ to education or health care, the animal right is, at bottom, a right to be left alone. It does not call for government to tax us in order to provide animals with food, shelter, and veterinary care. It only requires us to stop killing them and making them suffer.”

Seems reasonable enough. Considering dolphin intelligence has been long been established, this declaration doesn’t seem to be a particularly radical move. They exhibit self-awareness, use tools, cooperate to solve tasks, and very recently it was found that they possibly communicate to each other using individual names. The major real world implications of declaring them non-human persons would be the closing of dolphin and orca shows at marine parks, setting them free from aquariums and zoos, and a prohibition against kills, such as the one documented in Academy Award winning movie The Cove.

Conspiracy Theories That Turned Out To Be True

(http://higherperspective.com/2014/02/16-conspiracy-theories-turned-true-2.html)

Are you a conspiracy theorist? If not, perhaps you should be. Yes, there have certainly been a lot of “conspiracy theories” over the years that have turned out not to be accurate. However, the truth is that a large number of very prominent conspiracy theories have turned out to actually be true. So the next time that you run into some “tin foil hat wearing lunatics”, you might want to actually listen to what they have to say. They may actually know some things that you do not. In fact, one recent study found that “conspiracy theorists” are actually more sane than the general population. So the next time you are tempted to dismiss someone as a “conspiracy theorist”, just remember that the one that is crazy might actually be you. The following are 16 popular conspiracy theories that turned out to be true…

1. “They Put Cancer Viruses Into Our Vaccines”

When I first heard about this I did not believe it. And of course not all vaccines contain cancer viruses. But tens of millions of Americans did receive vaccines with cancer viruses in them, and now we have learned that even the CDC has admitted that this is true…

The CDC has quickly removed a page from their website, which is now cached here, admitting that more than 98 million Americans received one or more doses of polio vaccine within an 8-year span when a proportion of the vaccine was contaminated with a cancer causing polyomavirus called SV40. It has been estimated that 10-30 million Americans could have received an SV40 contaminated dose of the vaccine.

SV40 is an abbreviation for Simian vacuolating virus 40 or Simian virus 40, a polyomavirus that is found in both monkeys and humans. Like other polyomaviruses, SV40 is a DNA virus that has been found to cause tumors and cancer.

(FYI…vaccines are a cash cow for the medical community.)

2. “The U.S. Government And Monsanto Are Teaming Up Against Opponents Of Genetically-Modified Food”

The establishment does not like those that are trying to stand in the way of genetically-modified food. The following is from a recent Activist Post article…

A shocking new investigative report from the largest daily newspaper in Germany alleges that Monsanto, the US Military and the US government have colluded to track and disrupt both anti-GMO activists and independent scientists who study the adverse effects of genetically modified food.

As revealed yesterday by Sustainable Pulse, on July 13th the German newspaper Süddeutsche Zeitung detailed information on how the US Government “advances the interests of their corporations,” focusing on Monsanto as a prime example.

The report titled, “The Sinister Monsanto Group: ‘Agent Orange’ to Genetically Modified Corn,” described a ‘new fangled cyber war’ being waged against both eco-activists and independent scientists by supporters and former employees of Monsanto, who are described as “operationally powerful assistants” and who have taken up sometimes high-ranking posts in the US administration, regulatory authorities, and some of whom have connections deep within the military industrial establishment, including the CIA.

 3. “Someday Scientists Will Be Using Millions Of Genetically-Modified Animals In Scientific Experiments”

Did you know that literally millions of genetically-modified animals are being experimented on in labs all over the globe?…
The number of genetically modified (GM) animals used in scientific research in Britain has exceeded the number of ordinary laboratory animals for the first time, according to official statistics that show a 9 per cent overall increase in the use of experimental animals last year.

Some 4,033,310 animals were used in scientific experiments started in 2012, an increase of 322,689, or 9 per cent over the previous year. There were 1.91 million scientific “procedures” used with GM animals in 2012 compared to 1.68.m procedures on normal animals.

 4. “Scientists All Over The World Are Creating Extremely Bizarre Human-Animal Hybrids”

Should scientists be creating beings that are part human and part animal? Well, it is happening all over the planet. Just check out some of the things that a recent Slate article says is happening in labs around the world…

Not long ago, Chinese scientists embedded genes for human milk proteins into a mouse’s genome and have since created herds of humanized-milk-producing goats. Meanwhile, researchers at the University of Michigan have a method for putting a human anal sphincter into a mouse as a means of finding better treatments for fecal incontinence, and doctors are building animals with humanized immune systems to serve as subjects for new HIV vaccines.

Pretty disgusting eh?
And here are some other ways that scientists are combining humans and animals…
-Rabbit Eggs with Human Cells
-Pigs with Human Blood
-Sheep with Human Livers
-Cow Eggs with Human Cells
-Cat-Human Hybrid Proteins
For much more on this, please see my previous article entitled “Human-Animal Hybrids: Sick And Twisted Chimeras Are Being Created In Labs All Over The Planet“.

 5. “Obama Is Making Government Employees Spy On One Another”

Yes, this is actually happening. In a previous article, I described how Obama is forcing government workers to spy on the “lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors” of their fellow employees…

Federal employees and contractors are asked to pay particular attention to the lifestyles, attitudes and behaviors – like financial troubles, odd working hours or unexplained travel – of co-workers as a way to predict whether they might do “harm to the United States.” Managers of special insider threat offices will have “regular, timely, and, if possible, electronic, access” to employees’ personnel, payroll, disciplinary and “personal contact” files, as well as records of their use of classified and unclassified computer networks, polygraph results, travel reports and financial disclosure forms.

 6. “Someday Texas Is Going To Run Out Of Water”

Texas will always have plenty of water, right?
Wrong.

According to CNBC, the water crisis in some areas of Texas is rapidly reaching a breaking point…
Three straight years of blistering drought have strained Texas’ water resources. Some cities like Midland are already steeply raising their water prices. But it’s not just residents of the Lone Star State feeling parched. Texas-based companies are scrambling to reduce their water usage and enact long-term water management plans as a critical business concern.

“As the drought continues, industry’s eyes are opening,” said Jordan Furnans, senior engineer at INTERA, a Texas-based geosciences and engineering firm. Those eyes are opening to discover that more dry years are coming, he said.

There’s a desperate need for water to fuel industrial, chemical and energy operations in some parts of Texas. “If plants shut down, they’re losing millions of dollars per day,” Furnans said.

 7. “The IRS Is Specifically Targeting Conservatives”

Only a small percentage of Americans would have believed this particular “conspiracy theory” last year. But now it is all over the news. In fact, we have just learned that applications for tax-exempt status from Tea Party groups were ordered to be sent to the only Obama political appointee at the IRS…

IRS employees were ordered by their superiors–including Lois Lerner who pleaded the 5th Amendment against self-incrimination rather than testify in Congress–to send certain Tea Party tax-exemption applications to the office of the IRS’s Chief Counsel, which was headed by William Wilkins, who at that time was the only Obama political appointee at the IRS, according to a letter released today by the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform.

“As a part of this ongoing investigation, the Committees have learned that the IRS Chief Counsel’s office in Washington, D.C. has been closely involved in some of the applications,” reads a letter released today by the House committees on Oversight and Government and Ways and Means. “Its involvement and demands for information about political activity during the 2010 election cycle appear to have caused systematic delays in the processing of Tea Party applications.”

 8. “Fluoride Is Harmful For Your Teeth”

This is a conspiracy theory that was denied for a very long time. But now even CNN is admitting the truth…
The Department of Health and Human Services and Environmental Protection Agency are proposing the change because of an increase in fluorosis — a condition that causes spotting and streaking on children’s teeth.

Do you drink tap water? Do your animals? Is it in your toothpaste or floss? Does your dentist use it?

The fact is research has shown repeatedly that fluoride consumption can be extremely harmful, even deadly, and here are some reasons  why:

Fluoride consumption leads to lowered intelligence. One of  the most researched side effects of fluoride is what it does to lower your IQ.  The most recent study was published in the Institute of Environmental Health  Sciences journal Environmental Health Perspectives in August.  Researchers from both Harvard University’s School of Public Health and  China Medical University in Shenyang, in a joint meta-analysis of 27  studies, found there were “strong indications” that fluoride exposure,  particularly among developing children, is highly problematic for proper  cognitive development and brain formation.

“[O]ur results support the  possibility of adverse effects of fluoride exposures on children’s neurodevelopment,” Anna Choi, a research scientist at  Harvard, and her colleagues wrote in their report. “Fluoride readily  crosses the placenta. Fluoride exposure to the developing brain, which is much  more susceptible to injury caused by toxicants than is the mature brain, may  possibly lead to damage of a permanent nature.”

Increased risk of  cancer. According to a study by the Harvard School of Dental Health,  fluoride in tap water increases risk of bone cancer in boys, at levels currently present in  fluoridated water supplies.

“This is a very specific cancer in a defined  population of children,” said Richard Wiles, co-founder of the Environmental  Working Group (EWG), a research organization based  in Washington, D.C., that made the research available.

“When you focus in  and look for the incidence of tumors, you see the increase,” he told The  Guardian newspaper.

Half of all fluoride ingested is stored in the  body, accumulating in calcifying tissue such as teeth and bones and in the  pineal gland in the brain, although more than 90 percent is taken into the  bones, the paper said, citing the research.

Fluoride said to  contain neurotoxins. This is especially true for children, whose brains are  developing rapidly during their earliest years.

“Prolonged excessive  intake of fluoride during child’s growth and development stages has been  associated with mental and physical problems,” say researchers from the  Dental Research Center and Department of Pediatric Dentistry, Dental School,  Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran, which was published by  the U.S. National Institutes of Health. “Children residing in areas with higher  than normal water fluoride levels demonstrated more impaired development of  intelligence. Thus, children’s intelligence may be affected by high water  fluoride levels.”

Fluoride can impede thyroid function. Another  major problem caused by fluoride ingestion is the damage it can cause your  thyroid gland.

“The effects of fluoride on various aspects of endocrine  function should be examined, particularly with respect to a possible role in the  development of several diseases or mental states in the United States. Major  areas of investigation include . . . thyroid disease (especially in light of  decreasing iodine intake by the U.S. population),” the National Research  Council concluded in 2006.

The thyroid, which regulates the body’s  metabolic rate, is extremely important in overall human health. Chemicals like  fluoride can cause thyroid disruption, and can especially cause the thyroid to  under-perform (hypothyroidism).

9. “Using A Cell Phone Can Cause Cancer”

Can you get cancer from using a cell phone? Well, an increasing number of studies indicate that this is actually true…
At the highest exposure levels — using a mobile phone half an hour a day over a 10-year period — the study found a 40 percent increased risk of glioma brain tumors.

10. “Prescription Drugs Kill Large Numbers Of Americans”

Every single year, hundreds of thousands of Americans are killed by prescription drugs. The following is a brief excerpt from a Vanity Fair article entitled “Deadly Medicine“…

Prescription drugs kill some 200,000 Americans every year. Will that number go up, now that most clinical trials are conducted overseas—on sick Russians, homeless Poles, and slum-dwelling Chinese—in places where regulation is virtually nonexistent, the F.D.A. doesn’t reach, and “mistakes” can end up in pauper’s graves?

 11. “The Elite Want To Dramatically Reduce The Global Population”

Yes, many among the global elite really do want to substantially reduce the population of the planet. The following quotes are from one of my previous articles…

-David Rockefeller: “The negative impact of population growth on all of our planetary ecosystems is becoming appallingly evident.”

-CNN Founder Ted Turner: “A total world population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be ideal.”

-Paul Ehrlich, a former science adviser to president George W. Bush and the author of “The Population Bomb”: “To our minds, the fundamental cure, reducing the scale of the human enterprise (including the size of the population) to keep its aggregate consumption within the carrying capacity of Earth is obvious but too much neglected or denied”

-Barack Obama’s primary science adviser, John P. Holdren: “The development of a long-term sterilizing capsule that could be implanted under the skin and removed when pregnancy is desired opens additional possibilities for coercive fertility control. The capsule could be implanted at puberty and might be removable, with official permission, for a limited number of births.”

12. “The NSA Is Spying On Our Phone Calls, Internet Searches And Financial Transactions”

Thanks to Edward Snowden, we have learned much more about how the NSA spies on all of us. And just this week it has come out that the NSA has no problem snooping on you if you are a friend of a friend of a friend of someone that might be a potential terrorist…

Chris Inglis, the agency’s deputy director, was one of several government representatives—including from the FBI and the office of the Director of National Intelligence—testifying before the House Judiciary Committee this morning. Most of the testimony largely echoed previous testimony by the agencies on the topic of the government’s surveillance, including a retread of the same offered examples for how the Patriot Act and Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act had stopped terror events.

But Inglis’ statement was new. Analysts look “two or three hops” from terror suspects when evaluating terror activity, Inglis revealed. Previously, the limit of how surveillance was extended had been described as two hops. This meant that if the NSA were following a phone metadata or web trail from a terror suspect, it could also look at the calls from the people that suspect has spoken with—one hop. And then, the calls that second person had also spoken with—two hops. Terror suspect to person two to person three. Two hops. And now: A third hop.

13. “The Federal Reserve Is A Perpetual Debt Machine That Is Designed To Create Inflation”

The Federal Reserve is a private banking cartel that was created by the bankers and that serves the interest of the bankers. It was designed to perpetually increase the U.S. national debt and to perpetually create inflation. Unfortunately, it has done a great job on both counts. Since the Federal Reserve was created back in 1913, the U.S. national debt has gotten more than 5000 times larger, and the value of the U.S. dollar has fallen by more than 96 percent.

The Greatest Nutritional Deficiency in America: Vitamin B-Complex

One of the most common nutritional deficiencies and most commonly misdiagnosed problems in America is B-COMPLEX DEFICIENCY SYNDROME (BCDS). Since most doctors feel either that vitamin deficiencies are a lot of bunk, or that “enriched” processed foods fill nutritional voids, a lot of bogus diagnoses are given to people suffering from a simple deficiency of B vitamins.
Some of the bogus diagnosis and symptoms include:

Hypoglycemia (*more on this later.)
Candida
PMS
Depression
Neuritis (inflammation of the nerves which cause pain)
Weakness and fatigue
Indigestion
IBS
Poor appetite
Sugar cravings
Muscular pain and soreness
Headaches
Insomnia
Dizziness
Nervousness, anxiety
Instability
Forgetfulness
Fearfulness
Rage
Hostility
Sound serious? When you consider all the possible different diagnoses and drug therapies for each symptom listed is downright horrifying.

*To an individual who has problems handling sugar, refined sugar is equivalent to a poison! A list of symptoms accompanying hypoglycemia is impressive. Apprehension, depression, inability to concentrate, cravings for sweets and chocolate, ADD, dizziness, crying spells, mental cloudiness, unrealistic fears, worry, sleepiness, insomnia, double vision, low reflex response, chronic fatigue, pain.

It is not easy to get real B vitamins in the American diet. The riches source of these vitamins is Brewer’s yeast (not exactly a staple of the average American’s diet). Other rich sources include liver, animal foods and whole grain cereal.

As for the cereal, do not get too excited. No amount of synthetic B-vitamins added, enriched or fortified to food will substitute for the real B-complex found in nature. The only cereals that contain the true B-complex vitamins are the all-natural whole grain cereals that most people do not eat.

When you strip a grain of all its nutrition, make it into white bread or commercial cereal, and add a few synthetic nutrients like thiamine hydrochloride, it is still a nutritionally counterfeit food, no matter what the medical-drug-food-dairy-chemical distributors (of misinformation and lies) tell you. If “enriched” foods, which are consumed by the tons, were truly enriched by the added synthetics, BCDS, and all the health problems associated with it, would not exist.

“Since we obtain vitamin B12 only from animal foods in our diet, deficiencies tend to develop among strict vegetarians, especially vegan children, who eat no animal products. However, the elderly, and those who are unable to absorb vitamin B12 from the intestinal tract are also at risk, as well as those who are pregnant or who suffer hemorrhage or intestinal disorders (Dr. Weil).”

When you suffer from B-vitamin deficiency over a long period of time, undue stress is placed upon the glands that provide you the ability to cope with stress–the Adrenal Glands. As long as the adrenal glands can put out sufficient adrenal hormone, you will survive BCDS. But when adrenal function can no longer compensate, the symptoms will slowly creep up and if ignored, can turn into a chronic health condition.

Weakening adrenal functioning in the face of starvation for B-vitamins causes about half of all the low back pain in America. Continued weakening of adrenal leads to heart problems, even heart attacks. And when adrenal function nears the critical stage, nervous exhaustion occurs, with the potential of a full-blown nervous breakdown.

You court disaster by treating conditions like hypoglycemia, candida, PMS and other conditions with drugs or bizarre diets. Instead, alter your diet to include foods rich in B-vitamins. If foods are not enough, get a food natural vitamin B complex supplement such as Biotics Research Bio-3B-G (3-6 tablets daily).

The most common complaints of people suffering from BCDS (especially women) are depression and the tendency to cry easily. The next most classical symptom of BCDS is a constant feeling that something dreadful is about to happen.

If you start a nutritional supplement program, be alerted that after a few days to a week on the program, unusual or increased fatigue or even exhaustion is not uncommon. This increased fatigue results from repair mechanisms within the body, and is proof that the program is working. The increased fatigue is typically short-lived.

Within 30 days, you will begin feeling much better. But it can take some people longer than others. If you have already advanced to the stage of having severe symptoms, it may take several months or even longer than a year to completely recover.

US in sweetheart deal with JPMorgan over complicity in Madoff Ponzi scheme

      By      Barry Grey             17 December 2013

The Obama administration is preparing once again to shield JPMorgan Chase and its CEO, Jamie Dimon, from criminal prosecution for their illegal activities, this time in connection with the $20 billion Ponzi scheme operated by Bernard Madoff.

Multiple news outlets reported last week—exactly five years after Madoff, the former chairman of the NASDAQ stock exchange, was arrested at his Manhattan penthouse—that JPMorgan is about to reach a settlement with the Justice Department over charges that the bank failed to alert US authorities about its suspicions that Madoff’s investment firm was a fraud.

JPMorgan, the biggest US bank, was Madoff’s primary banker for more than two decades. The bank collected lucrative fees from Madoff’s firm, which moved billions of dollars through its accounts.

At the time of Madoff’s arrest, the World Socialist Web Site wrote: “Madoff’s scam could not have been carried out without the complicity of the highest echelons of the financial elite and the government.” (See: “The Madoff scandal”). The settlement between the government and JPMorgan, expected to be finalized and formally announced before the end of the year, confirms this analysis.

Madoff himself, interviewed from prison by the Financial Times in 2011, said, “JPMorgan doesn’t have a chance in hell of not coming up with a big settlement… There were people at the bank who knew what was going on.”

Despite ample evidence that this was the case, the Justice Department is reportedly offering a deal in which JPMorgan agrees to pay penalties of between $2 billion and $2.5 billion—about 10 percent of its annual profit—while avoiding a criminal indictment or admission of guilt.

The settlement reportedly includes a so-called “deferred prosecution” agreement, in which US prosecutors list all of the bank’s alleged crimes, but stop short of an indictment as long as the bank pays the fines and acknowledges the facts presented in the government’s complaint.

According to the New York Times, the deferred prosecution agreement is expected to accuse JPMorgan of a “programmatic violation” of the Bank Secrecy Act, which requires banks to maintain controls against money laundering and report suspicious activities to the authorities.

The bank filed a suspicious activity report in Britain in 2008, stating that Madoff’s investment returns “appear too good to be true—meaning that it probably is.” But JPMorgan failed to file a similar warning with US authorities or close Madoff’s account.

Yet no one at the bank will be accused of wrongdoing, and the bank itself will not be criminally charged under the agreement being worked out with the Obama administration.

The fact that the bank alerted British authorities to the phony character of Madoff’s operation makes it all the more unlikely that US regulators were unaware of widespread suspicions regarding Madoff’s firm. At least one prominent investor repeatedly complained to the Securities and Exchange Commission that Madoff was operating a Ponzi scheme, but he was essentially ignored.

Deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements, which have become commonplace in federal investigations of the legal transgressions of US corporations and banks, are not the same as plea bargains, in which defendants actually plead guilty to a crime. These legal free passes for corporate crime have proliferated under the Obama administration, in accordance with its policy of not prosecuting major banks or corporations.

Last March, Attorney General Eric Holder spelled out this policy in testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Holder said the big banks are so large and powerful that “if we do bring a criminal charge, it will have a negative impact on the national economy, perhaps even the world economy.”

This is an open statement that the financial elite is above the law. Like aristocracies of old, it is not subject to the laws that apply to the lower orders.

Not a single leading banker has been criminally prosecuted, let alone jailed, since the financial crash of 2008, despite multiple congressional and other government investigations that have documented pervasive law-breaking and fraud by Wall Street banks.

In an op-ed piece in the New York Times on Saturday, David M. Uhlmann, a law professor at the University of Michigan, discussed the vast expansion of non-prosecution and deferred prosecution agreements under the Bush and Obama administrations. He pointed out that from 2004 through 2012, the Justice Department entered into 242 such agreements with corporations, as compared to only 26 in the preceding 12 years.

He further noted that from 2010 to 2012, the criminal division of the Justice Department reached twice as many deferred prosecution and non-prosecution agreements with corporations as there were plea agreements.

These included a settlement with HSBC Bank in 2012, in which the bank acknowledged it was involved in nearly a trillion dollars’ worth of money laundering, much of it from drug trafficking. Another deal was made with Massey Energy in connection with the 2012 Upper Big Branch mine disaster that killed 29 West Virginia coal miners. Massey had concealed over 300 safety violations at the mine from government inspectors.

The impending deal over the Madoff scandal is the latest in a series of settlements by the JPMorgan in relation to fraudulent activities. Just last month, the bank agreed to pay a nominal $13 billion (the actual cash penalty will be substantially less) to settle charges that it defrauded investors by selling toxic mortgage-backed securities in the run-up to the collapse of the housing bubble in 2007 and 2008.

Earlier this year, it paid $4.5 billion to settle charges that it defrauded pension funds and other institutional investors to whom it sold mortgage bonds.

In September, the bank paid $920 million to settle a US probe into its 2012 “London Whale” trading and accounting scandal. The same month, it paid another $390 million in refunds and $80 million in penalties for billing credit card clients for identity theft protection they never received.

Last July, JPMorgan paid $410 million in penalties and repayments to settle charges it manipulated California and Midwest electricity markets.

The bank is also under investigation for its role in the Libor-rigging scandal, in which major international banks manipulated the world’s benchmark interest rate to increase their profits.

Evidence showing that JPMorgan long knew of Madoff’s scam has emerged in a number of legal complaints against the bank. One claim is that the bank knew about the fraud as far back as 1997, when it was alerted to “round-trip transactions” to and from Madoff’s JPMorgan account.

One bank executive acknowledged that Madoff’s “Oz-like signals” were “too difficult to ignore.”

According to one complaint in 2007, almost 18 months before Madoff’s Ponzi scheme was exposed, a senior risk officer at JPMorgan said, “For whatever it’s worth, I am sitting at lunch with Matt Zames, who just told me that there is a well-known cloud over the head of Madoff and that his returns are speculated to be part of a Ponzi scheme.”

Zames is now co-chief operating officer at the bank.
