The Deep State Transcends Sovereign Law – John Titus (VIDEO) | deep-state | Civil Rights Government Government Control Government Corruption Multimedia Sleuth Journal Special Interests Tyranny & Police State

The ultimate form of political and economic power is the power to commit crimes with impunity.  – John Titus

The Shadow of Truth is pleased to present a preview of, “All The Plenary’s Men,” the new film by John Titus (Best Evidence videos / Bailout Films). The term “plenary” in this context is defined as, “complete in every respect;” as in, “plenary power,” meaning, “absolute power.”

In his spectacularly prophetic dystopian novel, “1984,” George Orwell offered the following observation about power:

Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power.

The quiet revolution occurring behind the facade that is called “Washington, DC” for several decades has led to the complete hijacking of the U.S. Government by an entity nefariously known as, “The Deep State.” Those who warned about The Deep State previously were labelled conspiracy theorists. Now, with the help of Wikileaks, the idea of the Deep State is openly discussed even in the mainstream media. The Deep State is Orwell’s Big Brother.

The ultimate power is the power to commit crimes with impunity, meaning that the entity committing the crime does so free from fear of punishment. We saw this with the Iraq invasion in several respects. The invasion was never sanctioned by the UN Security Council or in accordance with the UN’s founding Charter. It was an illegal war waged by what has become the world’s most dangerous terrorist: The U.S. Deep State. Big oil is
part of the Deep State. Therefore, when Halliburton was caught charging the U.S. taxpayer $10/gallon for gasoline being sold to the military in Iraq, Halliburton was never punished.

Even more horrifying was watching the Too Big To Fail banks break every major securities law in the rule book leading up to the financial collapse of 2008 and escape free from any form of prosecution. Not only were these banks allowed to trample all over the law, but the Government used $800 billion of taxpayer money to keep the banks from collapsing and to enable the banks to pay large bonuses that year.

The primary theme underlying John Titus,’ “All The Plenary’s Men,” is that any entity that can commit crimes with impunity has risen above a nation’s sovereign law. In fact, that entity IS the sovereign authority. Thus, The Deep State is the sovereign authority standing behind the U.S. Government. The Deep State is comprised of not just the NSA, CIA and Pentagon, but also Big Oil, Big Banks, Big Healthcare and Big Technology.

“We’ve been swirling down the toilet as a nation since 2007” (John Titus). The Shadow Truth chatted with John about his upcoming film, for which he provided a thoroughly engrossing, if not chilling, trailer:

Tillerson Vows Forever Sanctions on Russia

Tillerson Vows Forever Sanctions on Russia | rex-tillerson1 | Politics Special Interests World News

(image: Kevin Lamarque / Reuters)

According to acting State Department spokesman Mark Toner, Tillerson spoke to (illegitimate US-installed putschist) Ukraine (puppet) president Petro Poroshenko on Monday.

He reiterated Washington’s firm commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity – saying sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control of the Crimean peninsula to Ukraine and fully implements its Minsk agreement commitments.

Fact: The Republic of Crimea is sovereign Russian Federation territory. The overwhelming will of its people by national referendum wants it no other way.

Fact: In February, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said “Crimea…belong(s) to the Russian Federation. We don’t give back our own territory.”

Fact: Russia and Donbass freedom fighters alone observe Minsk terms. Kiev putschists consistently violate them unaccountably.

Fact: As ExxonMobil CEO, Tillerson opposed sanctions, calling them counterproductive and ineffective.

On Monday after meeting with Sergey Lavrov, EU foreign policy chief Federica Mogherini called Russian and EU strategic partnership “surreal” with sanctions in place.

The “full implementation of the Minsk Agreements by all sides” is a precondition for lifting them, she said – a pretext for maintaining them. Kiev is a serial violator.

Lavrov blasted its regime, saying “(t)he apparent sabotage by (its) leadership of everything that is written in the Minsk agreements should meet some (responsible) reaction from those who patronize this” rogue state.

Kiev ignores its responsibility under Minsk, pursuing its own agenda – with support and encouragement from Washington and key European nations.

Why is Russia sanctioned for observing Minsk, not Kiev despite its daily violations, Lavrov asked?

EU states are subservient to US imperial interests – maintaining a permanent state of war in multiple theaters, supporting putschists running Ukraine.

How Too Much Calcium Can Break Your Bones

How Too Much Calcium Can Break Your Bones | bones-xray | General Health Special Interests

Did you know that most calcium supplements on the market today are basically limestone? Yes, that’s chalk. Conceal it within a capsule, a slickly glazed tablet, or in the form of a silky smooth liquid, and it is magically transformed into a “calcium supplement”: easy to swallow, “good for the bones” and a very profitable commodity for both the dietary supplement and mining industries. After all, a sizable portion of the Earth’s crust is composed of the stuff.

Calcium carbonate comes very cheap. But does it work?  A review published in Osteoporosis International Aug. 2008 concluded that calcium monotherapy (without vitamin d) actually increases the rate of fracture in women.  If we believe the results of this study, it would appear that calcium alone may do nothing to prevent bone fracture or the loss of bone quality. Were this the end of the story, we might write off the $100 or more we spend on calcium supplements every year as a loss, and start drinking more milk. Not so quick!

In the Harvard Nurses’ Health Study, a review tracking 78,000 nurses for 12 years found that the more cow’s milk they consumed, the higher rate of bone fracture they experienced; in the study, the relative risk of hip fracture was 45% higher in those women who drank two or more glasses of milk per day versus those who drank one glass or less.

In fact, in countries where both dairy consumption and overall calcium levels in the diet are the lowest, bone fracture rates are also the lowest; conversely, in cultures like the United States where calcium consumption is among the highest in the world, so too are the fracture rates among the highest (see: The China Study).

Osteoporosis, after all, is a complex disease process, involving lack of strenuous exercise, chronic inflammation, multiple mineral and vitamin deficiencies, inadequate production of steroid hormones, dietary incompatibilites and many other known and unknown factors, the least of which is in any probability related to a lack of elemental calcium in the diet. Also, osteoporosis, as defined by X-ray analysis, e.g. Dual-emission X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scans, can only directly measure bone mineral density and not structural integrity/strength, which is the real-world indicator of whether your bone will resist breaking when under the trauma, say, of a serious fall.

If we rule out drug (e.g. steroids, synthroid, acid-blockers) and hyperparathyroidism-induced osteoporosis, arguably the two main contributing factors associated with lower-than-normal bone mineral density are:

1) Dietary Acidosis: caused by the excessive consumption of acid forming foods like starchy grains, dairy (excluding goat’s milk) and meat, all of which result in the leaching of the alkaline mineral stores in our bones. (Additionally, the consumption of highly acidic substances like coffee, alcohol, sugar, over the counter and prescribed drugs, and even the metabolic byproducts of chronic stress can all put the acid/alkaline balance beyond the tipping point).  The flip-side is the under-consumption of alkalinizing fruits and vegetables, which disburden the mineral stores within the skeletal system of their sacrificial, acid-neutralizing role.

2) Malabsorption Syndrome: caused in large part by the excessive consumption of wheat, cow’s milk products, soy (non-fermented) and corn.* All four of these foods, in fact, can be used to produce industrial adhesives, e.g .wheat = book binding glue, cow’s milk protein (casein) = Elmer’s glue, soy = plywood glue, corn = cardboard glue, and while not a problem for everyone, for many, their ingestion leads to a disruption of the absorptive capacity of the villi in the intestines by producing a “gluey coating,” contributing to inflammation and atrophy of the villi. Other causes include dysbiosis, an overgrowth of unfriendly and undergrowth of friendly bacteria in the alimentary canal, as well as acute and/or chronic stress which depletes the glutamine without which the intestinal villi die (villi cell turnover occurs within 2 days, indicating even acute bouts of stress of short duration can cause profound damage). You don’t see a lack of calcium or Boniva in this picture, do you?

Fortunately these two factors are completely preventable and treatable through dietary and lifestyle changes. It is increasingly clear that osteoporosis is not caused by a lack of calcium; to the contrary, it appears that excessive calcium intake may actually cause greater bone fracture rates, especially later in life! After all, the traditional Chinese peasant diet, based as it is on eating a calcium-poor, plant-based diet, included approximately 250 mg of food calcium a day – not the 1200 mg (or more!) a day the National Osteoporosis Foundation claims is necessary for women and men over 40 to maintain strong bones.

Paradoxically, not only does the aforementioned hypothetical Chinese peasant have less dense bones than your average Westerner, but s(he) also has incomparably stronger bones. In fact, the Chinese have no traditional word for osteoporosis, and this is at least a 3,000 year old language!

These facts beg for a scientific explanation. A Dutch researcher by the name of Thijs Klompmaker, in his 2000 article “Excessive Calcium Causes Osteoporosis,” provides a brilliant explanation as to why too much calcium interferes with bone health. According to Klompmaker’s analysis, the consumption of excessive calcium introduced through diary products and mineral supplementation may be making our bones weaker.

Due to the fact that excess calcium can deposit into soft tissues, leading to osteoarthritis, muscle cramping, insomnia, constipation, kidney stones, and increased rates of breast and prostate cancers (note: calcium crystals like hydroxylapatite (bone meal) can be mitogenic, stimulating proliferation of cells, and are responsible for th  e screen detectability), the body prevents “calcium overload” by shunting the extra calcium into the bone, where it is stored until it can be safely excreted.

This can be a life-saving mechanisms because excess calcium in the blood can lead to the accumulation and destabilization of plaque in the arteries, can exert a hypertensive effect on the heart muscle, and may even induce cardiac arrest. In fact, according to two meta-analyses published in the British Journal of Medicine last year, 500 mg of supplemental elemental calcium a day increases the risk of heart attack by at least 24%!

There is a price to be paid for having to continually sequester excess calcium into the bone, which is that it stimulates the accelerated replication of osteoblasts (bone-building cells), and when osteoblasts replicate approximately 60-70% die as they become part of the new bone mineral matrix they lay down.  Because there are only a fixed number of progenitor cells and replication cycles available to each cell, in a given lifetime, the osteoblasts become prematurely senescent and incapable of replicating at a rate rapid enough to keep up with the osteoclasts, which break down bad bone.

These osteocasts are still much younger and active than the osteoblasts, which tips the scales in favor of increased bone turnover, resulting in a rapid decline in bone mineral density and bone quality later in life. This explains why Asians eating their traditional calcium-poor diet, for instance, have lower bone mineral density throughout their life, but reach peak bone mass later, showing slower declines than Westerners while experiencing their golden years.

Sadly, conventional medicine pays far too little, if any attention to the link between dietary and tissue acidosis/malabsorption syndrome and osteoporosis in particular, and the obvious causal link between diet and disease processes, in general. Moreover, with its questionable bias towards viewing disease as genetically predetermined and treatable with chemical therapies, the true causes of suffering are rarely perceived, treated and resolved.

In fact today a popular first-line treatment for osteoporosis is the use of bisphosphonates, a class of “bone-building” drugs (e.g. Fosomax, Actonel, Boniva, Reclast), which are made from a class of chemicals first employed to soften water in irrigation systems used in orange groves. The same toxic substance once used to prevent corrosion and scaling on industrial equipment is being given to millions of Americans to “treat” their weakening bones.

These chemicals are highly toxic, and are known to poison the group of bone-building cells known as the osteoclasts, which break down weak bone, making room for new, stronger bone that the osteoblasts put in its place. This unnatural intervention causes weak bone to accumulate beneath the new strong bone, resulting in an increase in bone density at the expense of bone quality. Three to five years into taking these drugs, though bone density usually increases, bone fracture rates may increase as well.

The side effects of taking these drugs can be life-threatening, e.g. perforation of the intestines, ulceration of the stomach and intestines, liver and kidney damage, atrial fibrillation, spontaneous bone fractures and an irreversible degeneration of the jawbone known as osteonecrosis. (View all 39 adverse effects here). To make matters worse, there is a systematic trend to label over 18 million Americans with a “disease” known as “osteopenia,” when in fact this is not a clinically relevant, evidence-based term at all, based on a completely arbitrary standard that highly favors overdiagnosis and overtreatment…

Osteopenia does not describe a disease state, nor is it an accurate predictor of future bone fracture rates. Technically speaking, “osteopenia” is defined having a T score -1 to -2 standard deviations from an arbitrarily defined norm, which is the approximate age in the human life cycle for peak bone mass: 25 years of age. The Z score, were it to be emphasized, would take into the age of the person being evaluated (along with other variables such as well as sex, ethnicity, etc).

The Z-score, because it is age-mediated, takes into account that as one ages the bone naturally becomes less dense. The use of the T-score generates the illusion that older men and women who are experiencing the natural gradual decline in bone density called aging are not going through a normal process but rather a disease process. This is all the more disturbing when we take into account that higher bone density later in life has been correlated with far higher (300% or higher!) rates of malignant breast cancer.

Ultimately the present T-score based bone density scoring system provides justification for prescribing unnecessary and extraordinarily dangerous medications. Bone health has everything to do with things we control, such as our ability to stay active, and what we do or do not ingest.  Vision and gait disorders, in fact, are at least as important as low bone mineral density in contributing to increased bone fracture rates. We should not allow ourselves to be convinced that swallowing limestone supplements or metabolic poisons will in any way fill the void that a lack of genuine nutrition and exercise left there.

Here are a few tips that should help you go a long way in preventing or reversing bone loss:

1) Eat high-quality protein and vitamin C rich fruits and vegetables! All bone begins as collagen, a substance whose intricate triple helix structure is formed through the Vitamin C driven hydroxlation of the essential amino acids L-lysine and L-proline. Focusing on selecting a diet closer to our hunter and gathered predecessors (not too distant from where we are now, in biological time) appears to be a key factor in preserving both bone density and bone strength.

And remember: Vitamin C is not the same thing as ascorbic acid. Szent-Gyorgyi, who received the Nobel Prize for its discovery in 1937, himself concluded that we need a whole food source of this vitamin, e.g. paprika or adrenal extract, and not the synthetic crystals we now carelessly identify with this life-giving food factor in food in order to prevent scurvy.

2) Get sunlight! Vitamin D supplements are to sunlight, what ascorbic acid crystals are to the Vitamin C activity found in whole, raw food.  3) Vitamin K works with vitamin D, preventing hypercalcemia and ectopic calcification, as well as strengthening the bone, without altering bone mineral density. It is is found in wonderfully nutrient-dense foods like kale, and as a by-product of the metabolic activity of friendly bacteria in our gut or in cultured foods.

3) Eliminate Wheat & Gluten from your diet. No grain is more harmful to human health, with wheat having over 120 documented adverse health effects culled directly from the National Library of Medicine.

4) Incorporate bone-building/strengthening substances into your diet. For a list of over 200 carefully reviewed natural substances with value, use the Osteoporosis resource page.

*While soy protein and flours, consumed excessively, will contribute to intestinal issues, including malabsorption of nutrients, in moderate quantities — and treated as a medicine, not a food — soy has profound therapeutic properties. The byproduct of soy fermentation will generate a phytoestrogen known as genistein, for instance, which is probably one of the most powerful, evidence-based bone-strength and density preserving substances in nature.

What One Husband Is Doing For His Wife During Her Excruciating Battle With Cancer Will Bring A Tear To Your Eye

What One Husband Is Doing For His Wife During Her Excruciating Battle With Cancer Will Bring A Tear To Your Eye | tear-eye-crying | General Health Sleuth Journal Special Interests

How far would you go to support someone that you love during a life or death battle with cancer? What one husband decided to do while his wife was in a period of strict isolation during her radiation treatment is going viral all over the Internet. Last October, Marci Newman was diagnosed with thyroid cancer, and anyone that has ever had thyroid cancer can tell you how excruciating the treatments can be. She was forced to spend last week in isolation in her bedroom due to another round of radiation treatment, and her husband Jon decided to show his support by setting up a desk right outside of the door to her room. Their 17-year-old daughter MacKenna was so touched by this gesture that she posted a photograph of her father sitting at this desk on Twitter along with the following message…

“My mom has to stay in her room in isolation for her cancer radiation so my dad set up a desk at her door to keep her company and I’m crying”

There is so much bad news in the world today, and so a story like this that reminds all of us that there are still people out there that are willing to do extraordinary things for the people that they love is extremely refreshing.

At this point, MacKenna’s photo and message have been retweeted more than 7,000 times and liked more than 9,000 times.

And it isn’t as if Jon just sat outside Marci’s door for a few minutes and then went back to whatever he was doing. According to the Independent, he has been constantly outside Marci’s door and has been going with her to every medical appointment…

Mackenna said her dad stayed outside her mother’s room “the entire time”, and Marci said that this is not unusual for Jon:

“Jon goes to every doctor’s appointment, every blood test, every surgery, every radiation. And as you can see, if he can’t be by my side he is as close as he can get”.

This is what love is all about. As I am going to be discussing in my new book that will be released later this summer, true love is a decision that is backed up by consistent action. Even if Jon never said anything about how much he loves Marci, everyone would be able to see it through his actions.

Unfortunately, so many couples today are having to deal with cancer, because cancer rates in the United States have been absolutely exploding.

If you are an American, there is a one in three chance that you will develop cancer at some point in your life.

And if you are male, there is about a one in two chance that you will develop some form of cancer.

We have come to accept this raging epidemic as “normal”, but in the old days things were much different. In fact, back in the 1940s only one out of every sixteen Americans would develop cancer, and in the 1970s it was just one out of every ten.

Despite the billions of dollars that have been poured into cancer research, experts are telling us that cancer will soon pass heart disease as the leading cause of death in the United States. Almost everyone knows someone that is either currently suffering with cancer or that has died from this horrible disease.

In our society today, our food, water and air are all highly toxic, and we are all constantly being bombarded with electromagnetic radiation from our electronic devices. We have created an environment in which cancer can absolutely thrive, and to say that it is a national crisis would be greatly understating the problem.

If I asked you to guess how much money is being spent to treat cancer each year in the United States, what would you say?

Well, according to NBC News Americans are now spending more than 100 BILLION dollars a year on cancer drugs…

As drug prices continue to fall under ever-increasing scrutiny, spending on cancer medicines has hit a new milestone: $100 billion in 2014.

That’s up more than 10 percent from 2013, and up from $75 billion five years earlier, according to a report published Tuesday from the IMS Institute for Healthcare Informatics.

Sometimes we throw around terms such as “100 billion dollars” without really thinking about them.

It would take 1,000 piles of 100 million dollars each to equal 100 billion dollars. It is an amount of money that is absolutely unimaginable, but Americans will spend more than that on cancer drugs in 2017 alone.

And once someone gets on these cancer drugs, their wealth can be wiped out very rapidly. According to NBC News, two of the latest cancer drugs that have been developed “are priced at $12,500 a month“…

Forty-five new drugs for cancer hit the market between 2010 and 2014, including 10 last year alone, IMS said. Two of those are so-called immunotherapies, a hot new class that harnesses the immune system to fight cancer. They are Opdivo from Bristol-Myers Squibb and Keytruda from Merck. Both are priced at $12,500 a month.

Needless to say, there are quite a few people that are becoming very rich thanks to our raging cancer epidemic. Hopefully a cure for cancer will be discovered very soon, but there are actually some out there that may not want a cure to be found because that would essentially kill the golden goose that is allowing them to become exceedingly wealthy.

Jon and Marci Newman should be an inspiration for all of us, and they are far from alone.

Millions of American families are dealing with cancer right now, and until a cure is found this epidemic is likely to continue to accelerate.

So let us pray for the countless numbers of people worldwide that are suffering through a battle with cancer at this moment, and let us pray that a cure will be discovered as soon as possible.

Mind-Controlled Prosthetic Arm that Snaps on to the Bone


Mind-Controlled Prosthetic Arm that Snaps on to the Bone | mind-controlled-prosthetic-arm | Medical & Health Science & Technology Special Interests

(Boing Boing) On Friday, surgeons installed a “click-on robotic arm” on a patient in the Netherlands. The wearer controls the robot arm by thought alone. Myoelectric sensors in a bracelet worn on the upper arm measure muscle signals that are transmitted to the prosthetic arm via Bluetooth. From ScienceDaily:

Through an opening in the skin, the patient “clicks” the prosthesis onto a metal rod in the bone. Because the prosthesis connects directly to the skeleton, a prosthesis socket is no longer necessary. This ensures that it does not slip off, avoids skin problems, and makes it very easy to put on and take off…

The nerves that controlled the muscles in the hand and the underarm before the amputation are meticulously attached to parts of the muscles in the upper arm stump. By connecting the nerves to the muscle, the muscle acts like an amplifier of the nerve signal…

The surgeries are followed by a rehabilitation period, so that the patient can learn to contract the muscles in their upper arm by using their thoughts. If the patient imagines opening and closing their hand, the muscles in the upper arm contract.

Tower of Greed

Tower of Greed | public-domain-bank-tower-of-greed-720x340 | Collapse Economy & Business Special Interests

Ladies and Gentlemen, I have to tell you, today may be the saddest day of my life. If you have not read, in full, Meet The Secretive Group That Runs The World, please stop here and read, in full, the article that should change your view of our world and the way you conduct business. I’ll wait here for your return…

Over the past seven years I have dedicated myself to reading, studying and doing my level best to understand how our monetary, financial and economic systems work. Beginning in late 2007 I set out on a course ingesting books, articles and websites, whole. Spending as much as ten hours a day for months attempting to connect the dots. Today I spend approximately twelve to fourteen hours a day filtering through various news articles, books and videos to continue the process of dot-connecting.

Tower of Greed | public-domain-city-bank-nwo-preparedness-300x201 | Collapse Economy & Business Special Interests When The Daily Coin was born, April 25, 2014, the goal was to help you in your quest for real news and information that would put you and your family in a better position for the coming economic collapse. As of 4:30pm April 12, 2015 it appears my views are about to change. Anyone who is awake and aware is familiar with the manipulation of markets, all markets, the criminality of the banking system and take over of governments, globally, by fascist means. Laws and regulations are now written by and for corporations and local police departments are in place to, specifically, protect the ruling and banking class. The local police also serve another very important function: to strip us of any loose change the banking and ruling class overlooked. As citizens we simply expect to be treated with dignity and a certain amount of respect.

Speaking for myself, is it too much to ask that when I go to a place of business for that business to operate in a manner that is comfortable and that I don’t feel like I am being lied to and my money stolen? Well, if you do business with a bank that is all you can expect to receive; dishonor and theft. If you read the article in full, as I requested, you now know exactly what I am talking about. The ECC (Economic Consultative Committee), fewer than 50, (yes FEWER than 50 people) meet twelve times a year to determine how we, the citizens of the world, are going to be sheered like sheep by the ruling and banking class. Can you imagine if we met, in secret, to plot against the government, the banks and the corporations? Wouldn’t we have a missile or rifle shoved up our back side? Wouldn’t we be thrown in prison, if we were lucky, as an enemy of the state?

Well, these men, maybe one or two women, meet to determine your financial fate and are paid like royalty for their “service”.

Tower of Greed | public-domain-BIS-bank-282x300 | Collapse Economy & Business Special Interests What impact do your finances have on your life, your family and everything else that surrounds you? So, is it safe to say that this small group of less than 50 people have a direct impact on every single aspect of your life? Have they not, in effect, hijacked your sovereignty? But, let’s allow the criminals to tell you themselves how they actually enslave humanity on a global scale

The world’s most exclusive club has eighteen members. They gather every other month on a Sunday evening at 7 p.m. in conference room E in a circular tower block whose tinted windows overlook the central Basel railway station. Their discussion lasts for one hour, perhaps an hour and a half. Some of those present bring a colleague with them, but the aides rarely speak during this most confidential of conclaves.

The details of the meeting are kept from the public. Why? Why would it be so secretive that nothing is repeated outside of the meeting? Because if you knew how your financial life was about to be raped you would be up in arms and be determined to take back your sovereignty. These people are pure evil. If they are not planning your financial rape, then publish the notes from the meetings, period. Otherwise, we will continue to believe you have nothing good in mind for our families.

The ECC makes recommendations on the membership and organization of the three BIS (Bank for International Settlement) committees that deal with the global financial system, payments systems, and international markets. The committee also prepares proposals for the Global Economy Meeting and guides its agenda.

Does that sound like something that we could benefit from? How is it that this tiny group of mostly men are allowed to determined our financial fate? I want to see the freakin’ notes!! How did they determine that “economy A” should prosper and grow while “economy B” stagnates and/or slides into a recession? What are the determining factors of such a monumental decision? Who benefits? Who profits? How are the profits divided and by whom? The global GWP (Gross World Product) is approximately $75.6 trillion dollars annually (as of 2013, the last year data is available). Isn’t that interesting. A tiny group of fewer than 50 people meet monthly to determine how $75,000,000,000,000,000 will be divided up among the global nations. Is this some kind of sick joke? How is that even possible? Let’s take a look at the track record for some of these people who make up this “brain trust”. Ben Bernanke – Did you see a housing bubble manifesting in 2004-2006? You know, the one that almost blew-up the global economy.

Oh, well. Didn’t see that coming. What about Greece joining the European Union? Was it a good idea? According to an article written in 2000, probably, not such a good idea:

Greece sought to join the euro in May 1998 when the first 11 members were chosen, but did not qualify. But EU finance ministers now found it had cut inflation, public deficits and debts to within the limits of the so-called “convergence criteria” needed for membership of the single currency. However, at an annual rate of 2.6 percent, Greek inflation is still higher than in most other European countries, and the government in Athens pledged to restrain spending and work toward achieving a budget surplus next year. Greece’s economy still has a long way to go before it catches up with the rest of the community, where economic output per head is on average 30 percent higher.

Translation: Greece produces approximately 30% LESS than ALL the other EU members! This is not an attack on Greece or the Greek people. It is merely pointing out the fact the gang of less than 50 knew that Greece’s economy would not fit with the other members of the EU and should not have ever joined the EU and switched to the Euro. They knew what would happen.

Who benefits and who profits? Probably the fewer than 50 people that meet in secret each month to determine how to slice the pie! This is two examples that have lead to our current economic nightmare that we, the citizens of the world, must deal with on a daily basis.

The “brain trust” that makes up the ECC and meets each and every month to determine how global finances are going to work are the very people that made the two decisions described above. Why should we trust them in secret when they have been shown to be economic fools in public? The game is completely rigged. We can not escape.

We must focus on solutions and develop systems that will help us to move away from these parasites, otherwise, we will simply continue feeding the machine. Do you want to feed the machine? Do you really want to support a gang of less than 50 people to keep you enslaved? Every time you use a dollar or use the bank you are filling the coffers of the gang of less than 50. So, where do we go from here? How do we dig this parasite out of the earth’s finances? We don’t. We begin a work-around.

Until we begin using real money, gold and silver, trading our labor for actual wealth that these parasites can not reach, we will continue to be nothing more than an ATM machine with our labor. They will continue to suck the very life out of us until the day we die and are replaced by the next sucker in line.

99 Relatable Things That Only Preppers Will Understand

99 Relatable Things That Only Preppers Will Understand | preppers | News Articles PreparednessSurvival Special Interests

Prepping isn’t all about wiling away your hours in a bunker, reloading ammo. It’s about the everyday things we do and the differences in our mindsets from non-preppers, and these are things that only real preppers will understand.

Preppers know these are actually signs of sanity, but we get used to being misunderstood by the unprepared and the mainstream media, who all seem to think that we’re crazy. Sometimes it’s fun to have a good laugh about their misconceptions of what we actually do.

You might be a prepper if these signs relate to you.

Many of the following signs will be so relatable that they’ll probably give you a warm glow. Feel the prepper solidarity!

  1. Pantries are so mainstream…you have food stashed in strange places in every room of the house.
  2. You have enough toilet paper to get through a year of uncomfortable digestive upsets…occurring with 6 people simultaneously
  3. Speaking of which, you possess at least 3 different ways to use the bathroom, only one of which is an actual bathroom.
  4. Your kids know what OPSEC means…at the age of 4.
  5. You have topographical maps of your area…plural.
  6. When you’re forced to interact with “the others” you feel like you are awkwardly censoring your true opinions

  16. You garden with a determination and time commitment normally reserved for endurance athletes training for an Ironman triathlon.

St. John’s Wort Benefits: Natural Support for Mental Wellness

St. John’s Wort Benefits: Natural Support for Mental Wellness | st.-johns-wort | Natural Medicine Special Interests

With one out of every 10 American adults actively taking an antidepressant, the need to promote mental health through natural means has never been greater.[1] A healthy, organic diet and regular exercise are critical for laying the foundation of healthy living. Herbs like St. John’s wort (Hypericum perforatum) are a source of antioxidants and other specialized nutrients that encourage physical and mental wellness. In fact, for centuries, people have turned to St. John’s wort as a natural remedy for an array of health concerns. Let’s take a closer look at its history and benefits.

St. John’s Wort Quick Facts
Scientific Name: Hypericum perforatum
Family: Hypericaceae
Origin: Europe and Asia
Plant Type: Flowering, Perennial
Health Benefits: Supports Mental Wellness, Women’s Health, and Healthy Skin

History of St. John’s Wort

Because of St. John’s wort’s ability to encourage a pleasant mood, much of its history includes superstition and spirits. The traditional Greek use was to hang the plant over religious paintings and statues to ward off “evil spirits.” Greek herbalists saw other uses for the plant and created tinctures to help with cuts, burns, harmful organisms, and even snakebites.[2]

The name we use today—St. John’s wort—is a carry-over from early Christian beliefs and practices. Traditionally, the yellow flowers of the plant bloomed on June 24, which was a time of year filled with midsummer Christian holidays, including the birthday celebration of John the Baptist, also known as St. John. Wort is the Old English word for herb or plant; put it all together and you have St. John’s wort.

The mysticism surrounding St. John’s wort carried over to early American settlements where the plant was often sewn into door wreaths to drive away unfriendly spirits. Settlers also believed that the herb would induce a confession if placed in the mouth of a suspected witch.[3] Today, most of the superstition that surrounded the plant is long forgotten and it’s understood that the plant’s ability to influence mood and temperament is owed to its nutritional components.

St. John’s Wort and Depression

St. John’s wort has shown promise in relieving symptoms of depression. Depression can present itself in many different ways and is often described as a persistent feeling of extreme unhappiness. Left unchecked, it can affect sleep, appetite, energy, cognitive function, and even the immune system. Persistent or major depression is typically due to a chemical imbalance in the brain.

Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are one of the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They work by targeting serotonin, an important neurotransmitter that affects mood. SSRIs increase serotonin levels by blocking serotonin absorption in the brain. In theory, this can increase the amount of available serotonin and strengthen the part of the nervous system that regulates mood. Unlike a SSRI, St. John’s wort is not selective in the neurotransmitters that it blocks. Instead, it inhibits the reuptake, or absorption, of all neurotransmitters including monoamines, dopamine, and noradrenaline, and the amino-acid neurotransmitters GABA and glutamate.[4]

Many studies have evaluated the effectiveness of St. John’s wort. Nearly 30 international studies show that it worked better than placebo for those experiencing mild to moderate depression. However, other studies found it less effective at addressing more severe kinds of depression. More studies and research may bring clarity. In the meantime, many doctors in Germany continue to recommend St. John’s wort to patients who experience mild to moderate depression.[5]

St. John’s Wort and PMS

Over 80% of women in the United States have experienced premenstrual syndrome (PMS).[6] Common symptoms of PMS include headaches, bloating, and fatigue. Women who suffer from more severe symptoms may have premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD). Symptoms of PMDD include depression, mood swings, and anxiety. One double-blind, placebo-controlled trial found that St. John’s wort was effective at positively influencing physical and behavioral symptoms associated with PMS. More severe symptoms such as anxiety, depression, aggression, and impulsivity remained unchanged following St. John’s wort supplementation. More research is needed to determine if long-term supplementation is useful for PMS or PMDD symptoms.[7]

St. John’s Wort and Menopause

Menopause is associated with a natural decrease in reproductive hormones in women around ages 48 to 55. The symptoms of menopause include hot flashes, sleep disruption, moodiness, and a reduced sex drive. St. John’s wort could help address several of these symptoms. One randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 100 women reported a decrease in the severity, frequency, and duration of hot flashes after taking St. John’s wort extract daily for eight weeks.[8] Another study involving 111 women ages 43 to 65 reported improvements in sexual well-being after taking St. John’s wort extract.[9]

Other Benefits of St. John’s Wort

Anxiety, stress, seasonal affective disorder (SAD), and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have each has been studied to see if St. John’s wort is a practical alternative to traditional medications. Early results show promise, but more research is necessary to verify effectiveness. However, at least one study noted that the antioxidant properties alone in St. John’s wort could make it an effective neuroprotective agent.[10]

Analysis of the herb’s other ancient applications, including remedying skin infections, burns, and cuts, is under way. In one study, over the course of a month, St. John’s wort seemed to help heal wounds of ICU patients.[11] The plant’s soothing action and resistance to harmful organisms[12] is a possible explanation for its ability to encourage healthy skin.

St. John’s Wort Supplements and Tea

You can find St. John’s wort in a variety of forms, including pills, powders, and liquids. While carefully measured extracts assure potency, you can also make tea with the fresh flowers from the plant. St. John’s wort tea is easy to make; simply steep a handful of flowers in hot water for four minutes and strain.

St. John’s Wort Side Effects and Precautions

One reason for the slow acceptance of St. John’s wort in the medical community is how it interacts with other drugs. It can reduce the effectiveness of birth control pills, heart medication, and even some HIV and cancer drugs.[5] Establishing a standard potency and dosage is also a concern when using St. John’s wort. Side effects are rare but do occur. These include dry mouth, upset stomach, increased sensitivity to light, and increased feelings of anxiety. Like any supplement, use by pregnant or nursing women and children is not recommended without clear instruction from your personal, trusted health care advisor.

Alternative Approaches to Mental Health

There are many natural alternatives to support mental wellness. Nutritional approaches to mental health can have a huge impact on how you look and feel. Consuming the right food that is whole, organic, and nutritious supports a positive mental state. Daily exercise, like yoga or walking, is extremely effective at encouraging physical and mental health.[13] No matter your physical shape, adequate sleep and daily meditation can work wonders for relieving feelings of anxiety, boosting mood, and clearing the mind.[14]

Are More US-Orchestrated CW False Flags Likely in Syria?

Are More US-Orchestrated CW False Flags Likely in Syria? | false-flag-1024x645 | False Flags War Propaganda World News

The April 4 Kahn Sheikhoun CW attack was a likely CIA-orchestrated incident, carried out by US-supported terrorists – supplied chemical weapons by Saudi Arabia and Turkey, trained in their use by Pentagon contractors.

Assad had nothing to do with what happened, wrongfully blamed as part of a Trump administration regime change plot to oust him.

Are more US-orchestrated CW false flags likely? Senior Russian Foreign Ministry official in charge of non-proliferation and arms control Mikhail Ulyanov believes so, saying:

“The major threat now is that Syrian militants have made certain they can use chemical weapons, and (US-led) Western (nations) will immediately point their fingers at Damascus.”

“Without any investigation, Damascus will be accused of using chemical weapons against its own people. Further (CW false flags) will follow.”

“Quite probably, they will be staged in Damascus’ suburbs in the coming days. The (rogue) policy pursued by Western countries is fraught with such incidents that might be followed by more airstrikes and the use of force” to oust Assad and replace him with a pro-Western puppet.

“Terrorists in Syria…have chemical weapons, and…Western (nations) are well aware of that.” Foreign regimes wanting Assad ousted supply them. Some toxins are made on their own. When used, Damascus is wrongfully blamed.

Last Friday, Sergey Lavrov calling conditions in Syria “very serious,” saying “it is evident that the false information about chemical weapons use by the Syrian state is being used (to breach Security Council) Resolution 2254,” calling for resolving conflict diplomatically.

Washington wants regime change. “(W)e must prevent it,” Lavrov stressed.

On Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Gennady Gatilov denounced new US sanctions on Syrians, stressing no grounds justify imposing them. “(T)here aren’t any facts” suggesting their involvement in using them.

On Monday, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov said Washington and Moscow are (irreconcilably) divided over Syria.

Conflict resolution is unattainable as long as the Trump administration wants regime change – something Russia won’t tolerate.

An Emasculated Culture in a Fema-Nazi Society

An Emasculated Culture in a Fema-Nazi Society | no-men-allowed-feminism-1024x576 | Sleuth Journal Society Special Interests US News

Only those who have been existing under a rock are unaware of the integral destruction of Western Civilization and fundamental values that mark the last several decades. After the endless warnings and documentation provided by some of the most perceptive thinkers of the last several generations, society ignores and even condemns the factual record of this cultural path into oblivion. What has emerged is a disturbed mental insanity that demands total allegiance to a deranged political correctness. While it is evident that the genetic traits of the heinous descendants of Eve have formed the vanguard of this macabre authoritarian mindset, the decisive responsibility for allowing and furthering this spiteful temperament, rests upon the cowardly male gender that lost the courage to hold feminists accountable for their demented state of mind.

When a civilization abdicates the inherent reculatedality of facts, the elimination of truth soon follows. The mass popular practice of establishing a singular purity of thought is promoted as having a savoir-faire that will root out old customs of conduct and replace it with a wholesomeness of adherence to a Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons society. How quaint, to watch the inane poppycock that purports to pass for social commentary in the decadent media. If your tolerance for such drivel has long ago hit the saturation point, it becomes imperative that confronting these debilitated schizoids and refuse to accept their validity as a thinking and balanced person.

The relative ease by which totalitarian conformity is swallowed by the lethargic public is appalling. Free Speech can be abolished at Berkley, while Nazi thugs practice a 21th century version of book burning. Bill O’Reilly can be ushered out of the most watched cable news/political program with not so much as a farewell. The Fox wimp siblings must succumb to the advertiser invertebrates to satisfy the demands of the collectivist opposition. And when the gutless GOP Congress allows the Progressive Gestapo to force their Globalist Marxism agenda, the minority becomes the veto proof stalwart band of state religion.

Now not all is lost. There are a few shining stars in the ferment of black holes. Now that Don Rickles has vacated the throne of “Mr. Warmth”, the indomitable Katie Hopkins is set to be crowned as the queen of mean. A gal who slings the venom of truth has a warm spot in the heart of every red blooded male.

An Emasculated Culture in a Fema-Nazi Society | feminism | Sleuth Journal Society Special Interests US News

On feminism:

“Women don’t want equal treatment, they couldn’t handle it if they got it. It’s a tough world out there. What a lot of women are actually looking for is special treatment. What women need to realise is that they have to toughen up.”

If you are in the camp of the sycophants, who believe that celebrates or media personalities are credible opinion makers, you need to check your meds. Watching a few minutes of the Joy BS on the View, or the fake news on CNN, or the delusional Mr. Maddow on MSNBC; does not provide a welcoming platform for the raw veracity that a Katie Hopkins can generate.

Even viewing the FAUX stable of bimbos and pseudo commentary “experts”, one takes away that the boundary line for discourse is severely limited to what is acceptable to Sarah and Kathryn Murdoch, than to their loyal audience, who knows that the heyday of fair and balanced has long passed away.

America has become a castrated culture ruled by a Femifascist society where “The average femanazi is a hypocritical dictator and a sexist. They tend to believe the male gender is conspiring against women and show no restraint in heaving up utter nonsense, which they refer to as ‘an argument’.”

With the utter destruction of academic integrity, institutions of higher learning have become asylums of electroshock therapy for integrating diminished government school graduates into the advanced treatment of producing social parasites. Public education is more damaging than communal isolation.

The example of a traditional social organization should alarm any sound thinking countryman. Tony Perkins argues, in Our Culture ‘Has Been Emasculated By Feminists And By The Left,’ Endangering Western Civilization.

“Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council, joined “Breitbart News Daily” this morning, where he told host Alex Marlow that the Boy Scouts’ recent decision to allow transgender boys to join troops and policies allowing LGBT people to serve in the military are evidence that American culture “has been emasculated by the feminists and by the left,” to the detriment of western civilization.

Perkins told Marlow that the Boy Scouts of America was “designed, initially, to turn boys into men so that they could defend the country” but that “in this almost emasculated culture in which we live, that’s a thing of another era.”

He added that “those driving this agenda have an insatiable desire to radically transform America” and the Boy Scouts’ recent move “shows that this agenda is insatiable” and “cannot be appeased.”

Do not look to any Supreme Court to codify basic Bill of Right protections in this age of cultural relativity. With the decline in IQ measurement, “psychology professor, Jan te Nijenhuis at the University of Amsterdam, says Westerners have lost an average of 14 IQ points since the Victoria Era.” Add to this dumbing down of the masses, the debasement in the culture, and the prospects that a ruled society, will adopt living law accommodations and forgo the timeless principles of common law and inherent autonomy.

For an insight review The Modern Feminist Rejection of Constitutional Government.

“Those within the modern feminist movement frequently speak the language of equal opportunity and rights, but what they are really seeking is absolute parity between the sexes in all areas of society. This view is based both on a monolithic view of what it means to be an autonomous woman, and on the belief that discriminatory socialization, power imbalances within the family and society as a whole, and pervasive gender-based violence (which both results from and reinforces power imbalances) have created a social, economic, and political system that is inherently hostile to women. On these grounds, the modern feminist movement is less interested in protecting individual freedom and rights than it is in fundamentally transforming the American public consciousness and America’s political and private institutions.”

For those that see this assessment as an affront to feminism, you may not have a proper understanding of basic human rights. Examine 10 Winning Arguments Against Radical Feminism.

1) Feminism has nothing to do with gender equality.

2) Gender isn’t a social construct.

3) Gender roles are freely chosen (or freely rejected).

4) Women are not paid less for the same work, and equal pay legislation would backfire.

5) The patriarchy is doing a terrible job of privileging men.

6) Without capitalism, there would be no feminism.

7) Feminism oppresses clueless young men.

8) Rape culture is a radical Muslim thing.

9) Defending the 2nd Amendment should be feminists’ No #1 Priority.

10) Anti-feminist women are the ultimate individualists.

How did such an absurd and extreme perversion of defining female superiority in a world of male historic accomplishment come about? Easy when you tear down the pillars of an objective achievement society and replace it with a female victimhood and an irrational egotistical dominate pretense. In essence, Feminism Is a Hate Group, “When some of the most prominent feminists and famous women make openly hateful anti-male statements, and the mainstream feminist organizations say and do nothing to distance themselves from such public statements, then it’s clear that the hatred of men has an accepted place in mainstream feminism.”

As long as the male culture refuses to confront and demolish the obscene idiocy that elevated the progressive libtards to gain public office, there can be no future for a civilized society. If men lack the guts, let’s hope women like Katie Hopkins will bring the battle to the limited venues still available, for a public dialogue. Or maybe the best you can do is watch Ann Coulter risk getting arrested for attempting to speak on the Berkeley campus.

How can any honest woman accept the incongruity and silliness of a Nancy Pelosi or a Maxine Waters to the reasonableness of a Laura Ingraham? The Totalitarian Collectivists have forsaken any moral claim on a just society. The sad cohorts of timid and chicken hearted candy-asses that close their eyes to the debauchery of our civilization are to be condemned and ostracized.

When a society is based upon censorship and exclusion, news services and their sponsors can and will ban any dissenting voice that deems to challenge their worldview. Allowing George Soros’ MEDIA MATTERS – Orchestrated O’Reilly Smear Campaign, means that anyone can be driven from the marketplace of ideas. Obviously, the immediate objective of these despots is to depose Donald Trump as President.

The fanatical and twisted attitudes of the most radical of their apparatchik society have more fidelity to a model Trotskyite regime than an American Cause history. Men grow some gonads and get into the face of those screaming liberal progressives, who deserve to be exposed as the fools they are.
