New Wikileaks Vault 7 Release Proves The CIA Bugs “Factory Fresh” iPhones and Other Devices

New Wikileaks Vault 7 Release Proves The CIA Bugs “Factory Fresh” iPhones and Other Devices | cia-spying-iphone-wikileaks-vault-7 | CIA Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests Surveillance Whistle Blowers

Wikileaks has released another portion of Vault 7 called “Dark Matter.” In this telling release comes the story of the CIA’s involvement in bugging a number of Apple products, including iPhones and the Macbook Air.

In short, the leak exposes how the CIA infects Apple Mac computer firmware to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple devices, including laptops and phones. These projects have been developed by the CIA’s Embedded Development Branch (EDB).

WikiLeaks explains that this ‘bug’ allows an attacker/hacker to boot its attack software from a USB stick onto a device, even when a firmware password has been enabled. According to WiKiLeaks, the infector is stored in the Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.

Essentially, the leak suggests the CIA is bugging iPhones from their factory fresh state and that, regardless of whether or not the user deletes or re-installs an operating system, their phone is bugged. Data can be collected, devices can be hacked, and so forth.

— WikiLeaks (@wikileaks) March 23, 2017

 

Below is WikiLeaks’ press release on the matter.

Today, March 23rd 2017, WikiLeaks releases Vault 7 “Dark Matter”, which contains documentation for several CIA projects that infect Apple Mac Computer firmware (meaning the infection persists even if the operating system is re-installed) developed by the CIA’s Embedded Development Branch (EDB). These documents explain the techniques used by CIA to gain ‘persistence’ on Apple Mac devices, including Macs and iPhones and demonstrate their use of EFI/UEFI and firmware malware.

Among others, these documents reveal the “Sonic Screwdriver” project which, as explained by the CIA, is a “mechanism for executing code on peripheral devices while a Mac laptop or desktop is booting” allowing an attacker to boot its attack software for example from a USB stick “even when a firmware password is enabled”. The CIA’s “Sonic Screwdriver” infector is stored on the modified firmware of an Apple Thunderbolt-to-Ethernet adapter.

“DarkSeaSkies” is “an implant that persists in the EFI firmware of an Apple MacBook Air computer” and consists of “DarkMatter”, “SeaPea” and “NightSkies”, respectively EFI, kernel-space and user-space implants.

Documents on the “Triton” MacOSX malware, its infector “Dark Mallet” and its EFI-persistent version “DerStake” are also included in this release. While the DerStake1.4 manual released today dates to 2013, other Vault 7 documents show that as of 2016 the CIA continues to rely on and update these systems and is working on the production of DerStarke2.0.

Also included in this release is the manual for the CIA’s “NightSkies 1.2” a “beacon/loader/implant tool” for the Apple iPhone. Noteworthy is that NightSkies had reached 1.2 by 2008, and is expressly designed to be physically installed onto factory fresh iPhones. i.e the CIA has been infecting the iPhone supply chain of its targets since at least 2008.

While CIA assets are sometimes used to physically infect systems in the custody of a target it is likely that many CIA physical access attacks have infected the targeted organization’s supply chain including by interdicting mail orders and other shipments (opening, infecting, and resending) leaving the United States or otherwise.

Why Does This Matter?

We are learning the truth about what government agencies are doing behind the backs of citizens and without their approval. While it can be argued that these measures are taken for the sake of national security, there is much more at play here, and as Edward Snowden has always stated, the public deserves to know, and we all should decide whether or not this is right.

We are in a time when we are learning a great deal about the true workings of our world and governments, and the more we learn, the more questions we have — and rightly so. There is an ‘inconvenient truth’, if you will, that humanity is faced with and must begin to work through, and that is that we do not determine who is elected to our governments like we might think. Our governments are not who we think they are and do not have our best interests at heart.

We must accept this truth, because that is the only way we can begin to change our world and start creating one where humans can thrive. We have the capability to do so, but we must first take the manipulative forces out of the equation. Awareness of what is really going on is that first step. News stories like this help us begin asking those big questions that lead to understanding what’s really going on and then effecting change.

The Global Famine Begins: UN Announces Worst Food Crisis Since WWII Happening Now

The Global Famine Begins: UN Announces Worst Food Crisis Since WWII Happening Now | homeless-poverty | Special Interests United Nations World News

We always knew that this would start happening.  Earlier this month, I wrote about the severe economic problems that are plaguing South America, but up to this point I have neglected to discuss the horrific famines that are breaking out all over Africa.  Right now there is a desperate need for food in South Sudan, Somalia, northeast Nigeria, Eritrea and Kenya.  And Yemen, even though it is not technically part of Africa, is being affected by many of the same factors that are crippling nations all over eastern Africa.  The United Nations says that more than 20 million people could die from starvation and disease if nothing is done.  When I write about economic collapse, this is the kind of thing that I am talking about, and we are starting to see alarming conditions spread across the globe.  Many believe that we could never possibly face this kind of food crisis in the western world, but unfortunately wishful thinking will only get you so far.

The United Nations was formed in 1945, and the UN has just announced that what we are facing this year is “the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the UN”.  The following comes from a CNN article entitled “20 million at risk of starvation in world’s largest crisis since 1945, UN says“…

“We stand at a critical point in history. Already at the beginning of the year we are facing the largest humanitarian crisis since the creation of the UN,” UN humanitarian chief Stephen O’Brien said Friday.

Now, more than 20 million people across four countries face starvation and famine. Without collective and coordinated global efforts, people will simply starve to death. Many more will suffer and die from disease.”

It would be hard to overstate the level of human suffering that we are witnessing in many parts of Africa at this moment.  In Somalia, the UN estimates that more than 6 million people are in desperate need of food aid

As Somalia inches closer to a calamitous famine, the prospect of utter devastation and colossal loss of human life is once again becoming an imminent reality. The humanitarian situation in Somalia is deteriorating by the day with up to 6.2 million people in need of urgent aid. People across Somalia have been forced to walk hundreds of miles in search of food, water and shelter- with women and children disproportionately affected. Over 300,000 children under the age of five are severely malnourished, with over 200,000 more children at risk of acute malnutrition.

In South Sudan, close to half the population is in dire need of assistance, and things have gotten so bad there that people will literally eat grass if they can find it

Across South Sudan more than one million children are believed to be acutely malnourished and UNICEF have said that if urgent aid does not reach them, many of them will die. “There is no food, we eat anything we can find,” one South Sudanese mother told ITV. “We will find grass, we will eat it. That’s just the way it us for us now.”

Over in Yemen, there are about seven million people in need of food help, and authorities are warning that if nothing is done “millions of children” could starve to death

“The numbers affected are absolutely extraordinary,” said Mark Kaye, Save the Children’s Yemen spokesperson.

“We keep on talking about a country that’s on the brink of famine, but for me these numbers highlight that we’re at the point of no return. If things are not done now we are going to be looking back on this and millions of children will have starved to death, and we’ll all have been aware of this for some time. That will shame us as an international community for years to come.

Eritrea was not specifically included in the recent UN alert, but it should have been.  Much of the country has been hit by a crippling drought, and approximately half of all children in Eritrea are stunted

But we cannot understand why Eritrea is not included in the appeal. Unicef has confirmed what we know from our friends and families inside the country. In a report in January, the agency said that the El Niño drought has hit half of all Eritrea’s regions. Acute malnutrition is widespread. As Unicef put it: “Malnutrition rates already exceeded emergency levels, with 22,700 children under five projected to suffer from severe acute malnutrition in 2017 … Half of all children in Eritrea are stunted, and as a result, these children are even more vulnerable to malnutrition and disease outbreaks.

We have been warned that there would be famines in diverse places in these times.  But here in the western world we tend to be lulled into a false sense of security by our comfortable lives, not realizing that the massively inflated standard of living that we have been enjoying has been fueled by the largest mountain of debt in the history of the planet.

In Kenya, a national emergency has been declared due to drought and famine.  For those of you that are parents, what would you do if your children were crying out for food but you didn’t have anything to give them?  The following story from Kenya is beyond heartbreaking…

Emmanuel Ayapar is three years old and can no longer walk. The flesh on his legs, which dangle from his mother’s hip as she carries him around, is wasting away.

He seems listless and sad, tongue flicking repeatedly in and out of his mouth.

‘We do not have enough food,’ said Veronica, his 28-year-old mother. ‘We eat only once a day.’

The little boy is suffering from severe malnutrition and is at risk of starving to death. He weighs just 15lb – half the typical weight for a boy of his age.

I don’t even know what to say after that.

In the western world we can be so incredibly self-absorbed that we don’t even realize that children are literally starving to death on the other side of the planet.

Hopefully those of us that live in “wealthy” western countries will step up to the plate and aid those in need, and hopefully this crisis will also help us to understand that we need to prepare for the day when things get difficult in our own nations too.

General Petraeus: Approves of Revoking Military Veterans 2nd Amendment (VIDEO)

General Petraeus: Approves of Revoking Military Veterans 2nd Amendment (VIDEO) | military-veterans-2nd-amendment-gun-control | Government Government Control Losing Rights Multimedia Sleuth Journal Special Interests Veterans

By: The Voice of Reason |

The philosophy of the authoritarian government is that citizens don’t know what’s good for them, which is why the all-knowing government has to step in to ‘guide’ them. And when it comes to the issue of personal ownership of firearms, the federal government has for years been trying to restrict the constitutionally protected right to bear arms of its own citizens. For their own safety, of course.

In the following video, Right Wing News looks at the continuing battle surrounding our Second Amendment rights, this time surrounding the issue of military veterans – the very people who have been trained in their proper use and handling. Currently, if/when military veterans become arbitrarily labeled with the mental health moniker of ‘mentally incompetent,’ they become banned from exercising their Second Amendment rights. One of the reasons for the attempted repeal has a lot to do with the fact that the term‘mentally incompetent’ is loosely defined. Let me give you an example:

A military veteran that cannot balance his checkbook can be deemed “mentally incompetent,” and looses his Second Amendment rights.

President Obama doubles our nation’s debt from the time of the country’s inception until the day he leaves office in merely EIGHT years, and somehow Obama retains his Second Amendment Rights, and still gets to be called Mr. President, rather than Inmate #$456344?

I DON’T THINK SO!

Sadly, the repeal is being seriously challenged by none other than General David Petraeus. When will the continuous assault of our constitutionally-protected rights end?

Breitbart reports:

On March 13 Breitbart News reported that House Republicans were eyeing a repeal of the gun ban for military veterans. On March 14 retired Army General David Petraeus and his gun control group blasted the proposed repeal as “irresponsible and dangerous.”

The gun ban for military veterans works similarly to the recently repealed Social Security gun ban, in that it allows investigations to be opened on military disability recipients who require help managing their finances. Recipients who are declared mentally “incompetent” then face a prohibition on purchasing or possessing guns.

The NRA-ILA reports that a military veteran labeled with a mental health moniker would actually face “a lifetime ban on the acquisition and possession of firearms, unless he or she successfully petitions for ‘relief from disabilities.’”

House Committee on Veteran Affairs chairman Phil Roe (R-TN-1) put forward the Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act to repeal this ban, but Petraeus opposes the repeal.

According to USA Today, Petraeus and the gun control group he formed with Mark Kelly–Veterans Coalition for Common Sense–sent a letter to House Republican leaders, saying, “When vulnerable veterans have access to firearms, they can do harm not only to themselves but also to family members and loved ones. The impact of these tragedies is felt in communities across our nation.”

But the NRA supports repealing the ban, viewing the ban itself as bureaucratic overreach which targets those who can quietly be stripped of their Second Amendment rights even as their Due Process rights are ignored. The NRA-ILA’s Chris Cox said, “Receiving assistance to handle personal finances does not mean an individual is unable to safely own a firearm. Our brave men and women in the military should not be stripped of their constitutional rights without due process of law.”

Roe’s Veterans 2nd Amendment Protection Act is expected to be taken up by the full House as early as this week.

Paperwork that Arnold believes was improperly filed states that Arnold isn’t fit to care for his own finances, which prompted the government to try and confiscate his weapons. The community, as well as Two Idaho representatives, came out to show their support for the 70 year old veteran when he needed help.

How to Survive a Nuclear Strike

How to Survive a Nuclear Strike | nuclear | PreparednessSurvival US News

Learning what to do in the event of a nuclear strike just took on a whole new urgency now that Kim Jong Un just threatened to nuke the US.

We don’t know if Kim Jong Un actually has the capability to nuke the United States, but we do know that little dictator in North Korea is batcrap crazy. So if he actually does have the ability to hit the United States with a nuclear weapon, do you have any doubt whatsoever that he’d do it?

Last week, it was reported by numerous sources that Seal Team 6 had been deployed to do away with Kim Jong Un. At the time, I thought that seemed a little weird, because wouldn’t that be a top secret mission? Why would they actually warn Un that they were coming?

Weirdness aside, the leader of North Korea responded with an incredibly unsettling warning via his Foreign Ministry:

“The Korean People’s Army will reduce the bases of aggression and provocation to ashes with its invincible Hwasong rockets tipped with nuclear warheads and reliably defend the security of the country and its people’s happiness in case the US and the South Korean puppet forces fire even a single bullet at the territory of the DPRK.”

According to a report on SHTFplan, the Secretary of State said that Americans “patience has ended” with the antics of Kim Jong Un.

If you were one of those people who felt such a sense of relief when Trump became president instead of Hillary Clinton that you stopped prepping, you might want to rethink that. A nuclear attack could mean one of two things – a missile sent to some location on American soil or even an EMP that detonated above the country, wiping out the power grid.

If there is anyone is crazy enough to start a nuclear war, it’s this guy. He has already shown that he refuses to cooperate with the demands of neighboring countries. Even though he has to be aware that retaliation would be swift and brutal, if he thought he could get in a sucker punch, I believe he would do it.

Do you know what to do in the event of a nuclear strike?

Preparing for a strike vs. an EMP are very different. For the purposes of this article, we’ll talk about a direct strike.

Contrary to popular belief, a nuke won’t kill everyone within hundreds of miles. If you aren’t in the immediate blast radius, a nuclear strike is absolutely survivable.

If you are within 10-20 miles of the blast, the winds will be coming at about 600 miles per hour. This will take down buildings and cause a tremendous amount of pressure. Some experts recommend that you keep your mouth open to try and reduce the pressure on your eardrums.

If you manage to survive that part, you have about 10-15 minutes to evacuate the area before you are exposed to a lethal amount of radioactive fallout. It’s time to get the heck out of Dodge if at all possible. The advantage you will have is that most people will still be trying to figure out what on earth happened. The disadvantage is that roadways may not be clear due to damage from the blast.

Your other option is to immediately get to shelter.

During a talk on surviving a nuclear attack, professor Iwrin Redlener, US specialist on disaster preparedness, said: “In that 10 to 15 minutes, all you have to do is go about a mile away from the blast.

“Within 20 minutes, it comes straight down. Within 24 hours, lethal radiation is going out with prevailing winds.”

Prof Redlener said you should feel for the wind and begin running perpendicular to it – not upwind or downwind

He said: “You’ve got to get out of there. If you don’t get out of there, you’re going to be exposed to lethal radiation in very short order.

“If you can’t get out of there, we want you to go into a shelter and stay there. Now, in a shelter in an urban area means you have to be either in a basement as deep as possible, or you have to be on a floor – on a high floor – if it’s a ground burst explosion, which it would be, higher than the ninth floor.

So you have to be tenth floor or higher, or in the basement. But basically, you’ve got to get out of town as quickly as possible. And if you do that, you actually can survive a nuclear blast.”

The most hazardous fallout particles are readily visible as fine sand-sized grains so you must keep away from them and not go outside if you see them. (source)

If you take shelter, you should plan to stay there for a minimum of 9 days.

A few other nuclear survival tips:

  • If you are in your car, make certain to turn the vent to recirculation so that you don’t bring any outside air into the vehicle.
  • If you have duct tape on hand, use it to seal up any entrances to the room in which you are taking shelter. (Hint: You should always have duct tape on hand.)

If you are far enough out to have a bit of time, you can fortify your home to prevent much of the fallout from getting inside.

  • Use duct tape and tarps to seal off windows, doors, and vents.
  • Turn off any type of climate control that pulls the outside air into your home.
  • If someone enters the home, make certain that there is a room set up that is separate from other family members so that they can decontaminate.
  • All clothing they were wearing should be placed outside and they should immediately shower thoroughly.

Have enough supplies on hand to wait out the danger.

As with many emergencies, you need to be prepared to survive at home without help from anyone.

  • Stock up on emergency food.
  • Have a supply of water for all family members and pets that will last throughout the 9-day waiting period that you need to remain indoors.
  • Make certain you have an iodine supplement on hand to protect your thyroid gland.
  • Be prepared for the potential of a power outage.
  • If you have pets, have supplies on hand for their sanitation – you can’t let them go outside because not only would they be exposed, they would bring radiation in with them.
  • Make sure to have a supply of any necessary prescription medications.
  • Have a well-stocked first aid kit.

Finally, print out this manual from the US government about surviving a nuclear emergency. It was written with first responders in mind, but much of the information would be applicable for us, too. It discusses:

  • The effects of a detonation in an urban environment
  • Shelter and evacuation recommendations
  • Medical care
  • Decontamination
  • Preparedness steps you can take well before an emergency occurs

None of these preps are completely outrageous items that you’d never use. I’m not suggesting that you go set up a bunker in an underground cavern. (Although that would be pretty cool.)  These are common sense preps that many of you may already have on hand.

Personally, I’d rather know what to do ahead of time instead of trying to figure it out after the fact when I only have 10 minutes to save the lives of my family members.

Deep State Obamanation Desperately Resists Trump’s Wrecking Ball (VIDEO)

Deep State Obamanation Desperately Resists Trump’s Wrecking Ball (VIDEO) | donald-trump-YUGE | Multimedia Obama Exposed Sleuth Journal Society Trump US News

By: The Voice of Reason |

8 years of an Obama presidency. 8 years of allowing the Deep State Manchurian Candidate to advance their agenda of cultural Marxism throughout the United States of America. 8 years of undermining our country’s very heart and soul. Of course, their agenda didn’t succeed, because their chosen candidate Hillary Clinton, didn’t win. And now that President Trump is determined to purge all the Deep State insiders from the government, they are fighting to survive.

In the following video, Right Wing News look at how 8 years of an Obama presidency had a devastating effect on America’s cultural landscape. By promoting a culture of permissiveness and promiscuity while degrading traditional American values, Obama and the Deep State have influenced a large portion of the American public away from these values.

With the mainstream media spinning President Trump’s goals as a direct threat to their lifestyle, these people are easily turned into unwitting pawns in a much larger battle. The question is, can such degradation be reversed?

State of the Nation reports:

So many people of good conscience are trying to figure out what the heck is really going on these days.  Especially in America, once “the land of the free and the home of the brave”. Perhaps the timely understanding of what truly ails the nation is a good place to start.

All of the civil unrest and political upheaval, racial tensions and religious strife, gender conflict and class warfare, financial stress and economic hardship, foreign entanglements and international disputes are due to the very same cause.  That cause is the Cultural Marxism which was quite purposefully employed in the building of the Obamanation.

Cultural Marxism is a branch of western Marxism, different from the Marxism-Leninism of the old Soviet Union. It is commonly known as “multiculturalism” or, less formally, Political Correctness.”

(Source: What is Cultural Marxism?)

In fact, the Obamanation (formerly known as the United States of America) was painstakingly constructed over 8 disastrous years of Barack Hussein Obama’s illegitimate presidency.

Obama himself was merely a pawn in this globalist enterprise designed to strip the USA of its constitution and its sovereignty. He was nothing more than the chief pitchman for the NWO cabal who dutifully followed every order from his true masters throughout the Deep State.  The various agents of Deep State, in turn, take their orders from the World Shadow Government.

Key Point: Barack Hussein Obama was a creation of the Central Intelligence Agency. This is why he blindly carried out every order issued by The Company, as the C.I.A. is known in intelligence circles.  As a creature of that malevolent entity and card-carrying CIA agent, Obama had absolutely no choice but to carry out every command given by his handler(s).

The countless crimes committed against the American people, as well as against foreign nations, by the C.I.A., the Department of State and U.S. Armed Services occurred because the POTUS was a purely political pawn.  The profound damage to the international order is readily apparent; whereas the utter destruction throughout the USA has escaped the attention of many, even those who have suffered the most. Such is the extraordinary guile and furtiveness used to advance Cultural Marxism.

Exactly what did Obama do?  The liberal side of America was literally handed their Sodom and Gomorrah by King Barack Hussein Obama over his 8-year reign.  He basically gave the ultra-liberals and extreme left-wingers, fake progressives and phony feminists everything they ever wanted. Same goes for the vast number of DINOs (Democrats in name only) who populate the ultra-liberal urban centers of America.

What’s important to understand is that each of these groups, as well as other segments of the Left, are the product of a vast social engineering experiment defined by the most cynical tenets of Cultural Marxism.  As such, much of the Left now preaches and acts out what might be construed as a form “hyper-liberalism on steroids”, which has nothing whatsoever to do with the original social philosophy of “Liberalism”.  The rapidly evolving social platform of Cultural Marxism is actually propped up by the twin pillars of permissiveness and promiscuity.

It ought to be quite obvious to any objective observer that it is not true liberalism that cultural Marxists advocate; rather, it is an overly permissive society and extremely promiscuous culture that they seek.  It is this “overly permissive society and extremely promiscuous culture” that is now well-known across the planet as the Obamanation.  Even though he is no longer in office, the de facto leader of the Obamanation is Barack Hussein Obama, now known as the purple revolutionary BARRY SOETORO, his nom de guerre.

As POTUS, Obama was the premier purveyor of the uniquely American brand of Cultural Marxism being aggressively promoted across America and beyond.  As a carefully coiffed Manchurian Candidate, Obama was educated and trained, mentored and guided by some of the top cultural Marxists of our era.  As a matter of historical fact, Obama was a poly sci major at Columbia University, the American home of Cultural Marxism as advanced by the Frankfurt School that was “associated in part with the Institute for Social Research at the Goethe University Frankfurt”.

Only with this correct understanding can one make sense of the current chaotic and unruly state of affairs throughout the USA.  The unrelenting and ubiquitous implementation of Cultural Marxism is why it’s so very crazy out there.  Subsequently, the Left has proven, post Trump’s election, that it will not give up their long anticipated and hard-fought Sodom And Gomorrah.  Obama quite methodically, and cynically, gave it to them… and they are determined not to lose it, especially under a Trump presidency.

Everyone’s version of “Sodom and Gomorrah” is different

New York City = Sodom

Los Angeles = Gomorrah

Some folks want the LGBTQ agenda to be fully enacted everywhere in the 50 states, regardless of any other considerations. They want the government to pay for their sex changes, breast enhancements and penis enlargements.  They also want Uncle Sam to fund their abortions and contraception, refills of Viagra and Addyi, among many other highly dubious uses of the public purse.

Some folks want to do their recreational drugs uninhibited (especially marijuana), irrespective of the ill effects on their families and friends, businesses and companies, churches and communities, etc. They want to be able to do their drugs anytime, anywhere without consideration of the many and profound societal consequences of such rampant drug use.

Other people want all the free handouts that the government will give them.  Anything that they can get for nothing is theirs for the taking, so they believe and they want.  “Living off the government tit” is all they care about,and all they know how to do. Once enjoyed for a decade or two, they will not give it up easily.

Then there are those who want their sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll—24/7.  These are the “perpetual teenagers” who are all play and no work.  Their “main man” was Obama (he was so cool always going on vacation somewhere neat and lookin’ laid back).  There was Obama for 8 long catastrophic years forever smiling and showing his big set of chops in every photo-op, as though he had not a care in the world.

They also knew that Obama did and sold crack cocaine as a teenager and young adult, as well as visited the gay bath houses in Chicago as a U.S. Senator.  The ultra-libs, incidentally, think that’s so cool in this age of extreme sexual promiscuity.  They think: “Even the ex-prez did ‘everything’, so can I”, as he most likely still does ‘everything’.

The White House is lit up in rainbow colors in commemoration of the Supreme Court’s ruling to legalize same-sex marriage on Friday, June 26, 2015, in Washington.

This is the very crux of the problem.

The Left, and all who are allied with them, will simply not give up their Sodom and Gomorrah no matter what.  You know how it is: once you get sometime that you really treasure, you don’t ever want to let it go.  Well, they have fought for decades establishing this overly permissive society and they refuse to let it go.  Once well acclimated to an extremely promiscuous culture, the cultural Marxists knew that those addicted would not surrender it without a HUGE fight.  That fight is not real well known yet as the Purple Revolution.

This was the very hook which drew so many to the current leader of the ongoingPurple Revolution—Barry Soetoro.[2]  First TPTB fastidiously fabricated a cult of personality around Obama that has put to shame all similar schemes—throughout modern history! Then, as POTUS, Obama made sure that he indulged the addictions and other weaknesses of every single vulnerable demographic within the electorate.  In so doing, he put to use his only skill set as a rabble-rousing ‘community organizer’ to pander to the many addictions and fixations, compulsions and obsessions of the left wing of the political spectrum.

By aggressively promoting the LGBT agenda like no other leader in post-modern history, Obama effectively created the single most powerful political force in America as well as the world-at-large.  The stealthy and unlawful approval of gay marriage by the SCOTUS is just one example of his numerous and often transparent cultural Marxist initiatives.  The normalization of trangendering is another, as even the VA was ordered to pay for sex change operations for the nation’s vets.

Key Point: It should be noted that the motion picture and TV programming industries ought to be included under this heading.  Both forms of media are directly responsible for the relentless mind control programming (MCP) which has taken place since the very first movies and TV series.  As long as there have been television commercials, Corporate America has likewise conducted their nonstop MCP.

Because the Baby Boomers grew up with these media since their infancy, they have been exposed to massive amounts of predictive programming, political propaganda, subliminal suggestions and many other clandestine techniques.   It is the liberal elites, especially, who are notorious for their endless propagation of so much pap and piffle, sometimes referred to as cultural pablum. All of these powerful tools of Cultural Marxism serve the immediate goals of Deep State, as well as the long-term objectives of the New World Order.

The long list of immoral and depraved actions, which were undertaken by the Obama Administration, is literally endless and will never be known in its entirety.  Because of this reality, the establishment of the Obamanation has seen the irreparable tearing of the social fabric of America.  Hence, it may very well be the case that the American Republic is destined to experience a 21st century version of the Old Testament’s Sodom and Gomorrah

The only reason for such an eventuality would be the utter depth and breadth of the inescapable Obamanation.  Even the formidable wrecking ball of Donald Trump may not be able to sufficiently destroy the 3rd millennium’s Sodom and Gomorrah so that the American people can reclaim their sovereignty, both individual and national.  In other words, it appears that the very foundation of the Republic has been shifted irreversibly by the multi-decade conspiracy meticulously carried out by the domestic and foreign agents of Cultural Marxism.

SEX, DRUGS AND ROCK ‘N’ ROLL

By properly understanding the primary strategies and tactics of Cultural Marxism it will be much easier to at least arrest its continuous manifestation.  A retrospective analysis of American social trends during the 1950s, 60s and 70s provides the perfect historical context. The British Invasion of the early 1960s, in particular, shows how the cultural Marxists executed their many nefarious plots to debase Western civilization.  The unintended benefit, of course, is that many a Beatnik and Baby Boomer were awakened by the Rock ‘n’ Roll Revolution triggered by the British rock groups and their American counterparts.  Much of their music was pro peace and anti war, as it was consciousness raising and mind expanding.

Many on the Right have been really scratching their heads wondering how the Liberals have become certified crazymakers. Particularly after many of them helped shut down the Vietnam War, why would they ever vote for an inveterate warmonger like Hillary Clinton. The whole lot of them have become mentally retarded and/or hopelessly irrational. Others are downright unreasonable and/or utterly ridiculous.  The whole world has seen the American Left collectively lose their ability to apply human reason, just as common sense has completely fled their thoroughly corrupt reservation of political correctness. Virtually anyone who still enjoys sound mental faculties understands that the ultra-liberals were the real crazies who ran the asylum under Obama.

But, really, how did it get to this point?

Answer: Sex, Drugs and Rock ‘n’ Roll!

We’re Making America Great Again… But Politics is Still CRAZY!

Many on the Left never gave up their drugs. Whether those drugs are marijuana or LSD, crack cocaine or crystal meth, black heroin or psilocybin mushrooms, many still do them both on Main Street and Wall Street and anywhere in between. Likewise, many of those who were able to ween themselves off these dangerous drugs simply started doing pharmaceutical or nutraceutical drugs. Others migrated back to alcohol and cigarettes, as well as to other socially accepted drugs like sugar and caffeine. As they became inexorably imprisoned by these various addictions, many found superficial pleasure and eventually withdrew into the new comfortable space created by Cultural Marxism.

Therefore, without any doubt, it is the pervasive scourge of drug abuse which has profoundly compromised the minds of so many Baby Boomers as well as their older Beatnik brothers and sisters.  Not only are many still entranced by some the more negative music from the rock ‘n’ roll era, they still subscribe to the notion of free sex.  While much of that inspiring rock ‘n’ roll music actually seeded the hippie consciousness that shut down the Vietnam War, there was a very deliberate scheme to push the “free love” meme (really just unlimited sexual freedom) throughout that musical era.  Consequently, the unparalleled and cataclysmic sexual liberation of a whole generation is what really served to transform America into the land of debauchery.

As the old saying goes, when the sexual mores are universally perverted, the whole society will inevitably collapse.  Quite unfortunately, some of those urban societies will actually crash and burn like Sodom and Gomorrah did in a New York City 9/11 moment or Los Angeles earthquake.  Welcome to the calamitous result of the pre-planned agenda of Cultural Marxism.

______________________________________________________________

Special Note:

It’s quite well known by military generals down through the ages that drugs have always been used to whip up the troops into a frenzied hysteria of killing and bloodlust. Depending on the specific drugs being used, these folks can be turned into head-chopping, crucifying Daesh terrorists as seen throughout the Northern Levant. (CAPTAGON: Tons Of Amphetamine Smuggled Into Syria To Fuel ISIS Terrorism)  Or, they might be the chain-smoking soldiers who fought World War II not knowing that their specially manufactured cigarettes were spiked with powerful mind-altering chemicals.

What’s the point?  The ultimate goal of cultural Marxists is not too unlike the communist Bolsheviks who fomented the banskter-engineered Russian Revolution.[3]  That terrible civil war occurred exactly 100 years ago.  And, it has often been said that the USSA would follow in the footsteps of the USSR… … …unless We the People become aware of the treacherous conspiracy of Cultural Marxism–post haste.

______________________________________________________________

Trump cannot do this alone

The political Left will simply not permit President Trump to wreck their Obamanation.

Nor will the Left ever vacate their Sodom and Gomorrah…and there are many more than just New York City and Los Angeles.  San Francisco and Seattle, Chicago and Detroit, Philadelphia and Boston, Baltimore and Washington DC, New Orleans and Miami, Atlanta and Charlotte, Houston and Denver, Portland and Austin, are just a few other sanctuary cities which have become havens for illegal aliens and liberal snowflakes seeking protection from sunlight, lest they melt into their godless oblivion.

Candidate Trump often said that the Trump movement was not his; that it belonged to all the Trumpsters as well as all other people with conscience.  The people are the very heart of the movement, Trump said, and he was merely a lightning rod, as well as the spearhead. As the tip of the spear, he knew that he would get blunted, as he has every single day since July of 2015.

7 Foods to Help You Lose Weight

7 Foods to Help You Lose Weight | overweight | General Health Special Interests

Dieting can be a struggle. There is a misconception that in order to lose weight, it’s necessary to stop eating. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is necessary to cut out junk food, refined sugars, and other pitfalls; but these must be replaced with raw and organic fruits, vegetables, and nuts. In your quest to lose fat, don’t cut out nutrition. Although the caloric bottom line does matter, the quality and composition of the calories you eat is also a factor. A few pieces of fruit may have the same number of calories as a candy bar but one provides substance, the other does not.

Independent of fat storage, your body has systems and processes running all the time- your immune, neurological, cardiovascular, and endocrine system all require nutrients! When a weight loss product or plan says to include a sensible diet, you can use this list of foods as a reference and replacement for processed foods and refined sugars!

1. Organic Citrus Fruits

Oranges, lemons, grapefruit, tangerines, and limes are citrus fruits that promote weight loss by their high concentrations of vitamin C. Research conducted at the University of Arizona suggests person with vitamin C deficiencies oxidize less fat [1]. Vitamin C not only helps to burn fat, but also reduce the levels of harmful cholesterol in the blood. Boost your vitamin C intake adding one or two citrus fruits to your diet every day.

2. Whole Grains

Whole grains are high in fiber and have a low glycemic index, meaning they slowly raise blood sugars, which does not result in a spike in fat storage. Low GI foods help curb appetite prolong the feeling of being full. Weight loss promoting whole grain foods include whole wheat bread, whole grain cereals, and brown rice.

3. Organic Non-GMO Soybeans

Lecithin, found in soybeans, is a chemical that prevents fat from forming on your cells and breaks down fat before it can accumulate in your body. Frozen soybeans are available but fresh is better and can be found at most health food stores or your local market, try adding soybeans as a healthy snack!

4. Organic Apples & Berries

Apples and many berries contain large amounts of pectin in their cell walls. Pectin is a soluble fiber that provides bulk and digests slowly, helping you to feel full. Pectin encourages weight loss in that it helps to limit the amount of fat cells can absorb. Pectin also has a water binding property that allows it to absorb watery substances and penetrate cells. These watery substances then bombard the cells and cause them to release fat deposits.

5. Organic Garlic

Garlic oil helps to protect cells fatty deposit accumulation. Additionally, garlic is a potent antibiotic that supports the immune system.

6. Organic Black Beans

Black beans are low in fat and packed with fiber, a whopping 15 grams of fiber per cup. Fiber fills you up and takes longer to digest so you feel full for longer, making you less apt to snack.

7. Spicy Foods

Many spicy foods, such as peppers, contain a chemical called capsaicin. Capsaicin has been shown to increase your body’s ability to burn fat and curb your appetite [2].

Quality Matters

Organically grown or locally grown fruit and vegetables grown without pesticide sprays or GMOs are found in many grocery stores. You have to look for them but they are available. Meat from organic raised livestock is also a good choice. The benefit to your health is worth the modest extra cost.

Or, to save both time and money, you can grow your own produce in a backyard garden. This depends on your space availability but even growing your own herbs requires very little space or effort and is a good start. Gardening has the added benefit of being therapeutic.

There are many foods that promote weight loss by filling you up so you feel satisfied, regulating your blood sugar levels, and stimulating your metabolism to help you burn fat. Boost your intake of these foods and you’ll have a better chance of losing the weight you need to lose. Along with a healthy weight loss plan that includes diet and exercise, some people find an added edge by adding a weight loss supplement like Slimirex® to their routine.

The Debt Ceiling Deadline Has Passed, And Now The Biggest Test Of Donald Trump’s Presidency Begins…

The Debt Ceiling Deadline Has Passed, And Now The Biggest Test Of Donald Trump’s Presidency Begins… | debt-ceiling1 | Economy & Business Special Interests

Last Wednesday, the temporary suspension of the debt ceiling ended, and so now the federal government is not going to be able to go into any more debt until the debt ceiling is raised.  For the moment, the Trump administration can implement “emergency measures” to stay under the debt limit, but it won’t be too long before we get to a major crisis point because the federal government is quickly running out of cash.  Already, the U.S. Treasury has less cash on hand than Apple or Google, and that cash balance is going to keep on dropping until the debt ceiling is finally lifted.

You may remember that the debt ceiling became a major issue a couple of times during the Obama years.  Last time around, Barack Obama and the Republicans in Congress agreed to a horrendous deal which suspended the debt ceiling until several months after the 2016 election

Since President Barack Obama signed the “Bipartisan Budget Act” on Nov. 2, 2015 there had been no legal limit on the amount of money the federal government could borrow until now. That law included a section entitled “Temporary Extension of Public Debt Limit.” It said that the law imposing a limit on the federal debt “shall not apply for the period beginning on the date of the enactment of this Act and ending on March 15, 2017.”

During the 16 and a half months between the signing of that deal and today, the U.S. national debt rose by a whopping $1,414,397,000,000.

But now the U.S. national debt will not be allowed to rise by another penny until the debt ceiling is raised or suspended once again.

The Trump administration is pushing hard to get the debt ceiling raised, and this is a complete reversal from how Donald Trump felt about the debt ceiling back in 2013.  The following comes from the L.A. Times

Trump sided with hard-liners in 2013, publicly opposing an increase. “I cannot believe the Republicans are extending the debt ceiling — I am a Republican & I am embarrassed!” he tweeted then.

Trump was actually right about the debt ceiling in 2013, and he is wrong now.

We simply cannot afford to keep adding trillions of dollars to the national debt.  What we are doing to future generations of Americans is beyond criminal, because we are literally destroying their future just so that we can enjoy an inflated standard of living that we do not deserve today.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin has already begun to implement “extraordinary measures” to keep us under the debt ceiling.  The first step that was taken was the suspension of the sale of SLGS securities

“Today,” Mnuchin wrote, “Treasury is announcing that it will suspend the sale of State and Local Government Series (SLGS) securities. SLGS are special-purpose Treasury securities issued to states and municipalities to assist them in conforming to certain tax rules. These securities count against the debt limit. The suspension of SLGS sales will commence on March 15, 2017, and continue until the debt limit is either raised or suspended. As in the past, it is likely Treasury will utilize additional extraordinary measures.”

The federal government will be able to keep going for a little while by implementing such “extraordinary measures”, but the Treasury cash balance is going to continue to dwindle and at some point a major squeeze is going to happen.

As things get tighter and tighter, the Trump administration will become increasingly desperate to get the debt ceiling raised.  As I wrote about yesterday, the key for Trump is going to be finding 218 votes in the House of Representatives that will be willing to go along with him.

You would think that since Republicans control the House that this should be easy, but the truth is that there are a lot of conservative Republicans that are not inclined to agree to a debt ceiling increase without substantial accompanying budget cuts.

The proposed budget that Trump released this week is getting a lot of criticism from the left for cuts to social programs, but the truth is that it actually doesn’t reduce the deficit at all

President Trump’s “skinny” budget blueprint for 2018 features a proposed $54 billion increase in defense spending and an equal number of spending cuts from the smallest part of the federal budget.

That means his changes won’t add to next year’s projected $487 billion deficit. But they won’t reduce it, either.

And remember, that “$487 billion” figure is just for show.  During the Obama years the U.S. national debt increased by an average of well over a trillion dollars a year, and that is almost certainly going to continue for years to come as long as the debt ceiling is raised.

Republicans are supposed to be the party of fiscal responsibility.

So now is their big test.

If they raise the debt ceiling and continue adding more than a trillion dollars a year to the national debt, they will lose all credibility with conservative voters on fiscal issues.

But if they try to force the federal government to start living within its means that is going to severely harm the economy in the short-term.

Donald Trump is going to have to try to figure out a way to navigate this crisis.  He has already promised that he will not touch Social Security and Medicare, and those are the two biggest drivers of our budget deficits.  In fact, it is being projected that entitlement spending and interest on the debt will eat up every single penny that the federal government takes in within 20 years.

So if Trump won’t touch the big entitlement programs, where will he possibly find enough cuts to satisfy the fiscal conservatives in Congress?

Without them, Trump does not have enough votes to raise the debt ceiling.

In addition, many of the conservatives in Congress absolutely hate the new Republican health care plan, and they hope to use this debt ceiling crisis as leverage to change the bill.

If Trump can’t work out something with conservatives, perhaps he could turn to the Democrats.  But most Democrats are extremely resistant to work with him on anything after all that has been said and done, and so for Trump to get a deal with them he would have to make extreme concessions.

This represents the biggest political test for the Trump presidency so far, and if we get down the road a couple of months and nothing gets done, this debt ceiling crisis could spark the kind of financial crisis that I describe in my novel entitled “The Beginning Of The End“.

Barack Obama pushed things right to the brink a couple of times, but he was savvy enough politically to never let things go over the edge.

Now it is Trump’s turn, and somehow he has got to find a way to get the debt ceiling raised without making extremely deep compromises that would gut the rest of his agenda.

And he had better get to work on this quickly, because time is running out and the clock is ticking…

What is Organic Soil?

What is Organic Soil? | seedlings | Agriculture & Farming Organics Special Interests

Organic soil has been naturally amended by the decomposition of plants and animals and unfortunately, today, most of the soil in the world has been depleted by agribusiness. Farmers who produce certified organic produce must first develop soil that meets with the criteria of the USDA. This requires them to amend previously depleted soil with essential organic compounds with the intent of restoring soil with the original richness our planet previously enjoyed prior to the damage caused by modern day industrialization.

How Effective is Organic Soil?

Organic soil is better able to cultivate plants than non-organic agribusiness soil. Organic soil also has a composition that provides some mechanical benefit too as the organic amendment improves soil drainage and makes the soil less apt to “pack” so it breaks up easily for planting. Organic amendment greatly increases soil nutrient content and the soil becomes much more resistant to pathogenic invasion that can harm plant life. Healthy soil develops a powerful mycelial layer that works to detoxify the land from pesticides and chemicals.

Research shows soil with higher levels of decomposing organic matter deters pest infestations. Not only do organic farmers avoid using pesticides; they actually do not need them the same way conventional farmers do because the richness of the soil actually provides a sort of natural protection for plants. Crops grown in organic soil contain higher levels of nutrients, minerals, and antioxidants. Organic farming often uses 50 percent less of the total amount of energy to operate than the mechanized, chemically oriented methods of agribusiness.

Simply put, organic farming in nutrient-rich, organic soil is as good for the environment as it is for the consumer.

Organic Farmers May be Using Contaminated Water

You have to watch for this. As of yet, the USDA does not regulate water quality used in organic farming. This means that some farmers can, and do, use municipal water sources to cultivate their crops. Many of these sources contain dangerous contaminants that go right back into amended soil and
straight to the core of the plants you eat.

Discovering if your vegetables were grown with municipal water requires some effort on your part, you will need locate and contact the farm and ask them yourself. Ask them if they are using well water or purified water to irrigate their organic soil. Also ask if they have tested the water to make certain it is as healthy as the earth they grow your vegetables in. Conscientious farmers who love the earth and its people will answer these questions politely and directly.

Do not be afraid to ask, and find out the truth about your produce before you buy it.

Ibuprofen Can Stop Your Heart (31% Increase In Cardiac Arrest Risk)

Ibuprofen Can Stop Your Heart (31% Increase In Cardiac Arrest Risk) | ibuprofen_cardiac_arrest_greenmedinfo | General Health Sleuth Journal

A new study reveals that a commonly consumed painkiller, wrongly considered “harmless” by millions, is probably causing thousands of deaths from cardiac arrest each year.

According to the Sudden Cardiac Arrest Foundation, sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) is a leading cause of death among adults over 40 in the United States and other countries, with about 326,200 people experiencing an out-of-hospital SCA each year in the US alone; nine of 10 victims of SCA will die.1

Suprisingly, however, the causes of SCA are still widely considered unknown. Instead, the medical profession opts for pointing the finger at vague risk factors, such as family history, previous heart problems, or elevated LDL cholesterol (a long debunked surrogate marker for heart disease].

But what if something so obvious and preventable as the consumption of NSAID drugs could be contributing to this health epidemic?

Ibuprofen Can Stop Your Heart (31% Increase In Cardiac Arrest Risk) | Causes-of-Death-2012 | General Health Sleuth Journal

New Study Reveals Heart-Stopping Side Effects of NSAIDs

In a concerning press release issued by the European Society of Cardiology entitled, “‘HARMLESS’ PAINKILLERS ASSOCIATED WITH INCREASED RISK OF CARDIAC ARREST,”2 researchers warn that painkillers considered harmless by the general public are associated with a significantly increased risk of cardiac arrest.

The report was based on a study entitled, “Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drug Use Is Associated With Increased Risk of Out-Of-Hospital Cardiac Arrest: A Nationwide Case-Time-Control Study,” published in the March issue of European Heart Journal – Cardiovascular Pharmacology.

Professor Gunnar H. Gisalson, one of the lead researchers explained in interview:

“Allowing these drugs to be purchased without a prescription, and without any advice or restrictions, sends a message to the public that they must be safe.”

“Previous studies have shown that NSAIDs are related to increased cardiovascular risk which is a concern because they are widely used.”

The study looked at a total of 28,947 patients who experienced an out-of-hospital cardiac arrest in Denmark over the course of a decade. Heart attack differs from cardiac arrest in that the former involves damage to the heart when the blood supply stops (usually through obstruction of circulation), whereas the latter involves damage from the heart itself stopping. 3,376 of these were treated with an non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAIDs) up to 30 days before the event. The most common NSAIDs used were ibuprofen (51%) and diclofenac (22%).

The study results revealed that NSAID use was associated with a 31% increased risk of cardiac arrest. Ibuprofen and diclofenac increased the risk by 31% and 50%, respectively. Naproxen, celecoxib and rofecoxib were not associated with increased cardiac arrest.

Gunnar remarked on these findings:

“The findings are a stark reminder that NSAIDs are not harmless. Diclofenac and ibuprofen, both commonly used drugs, were associated with significantly increased risk of cardiac arrest. NSAIDs should be used with caution and for a valid indication. They should probably be avoided in patients with cardiovascular disease or many cardiovascular risk factors.”

This is not the first time that ibuprofen’s profound cardiotoxicity has come to light. We reported on the subject five years ago in an article entitled, Ibuprofen Kills Thousands Each Year, So What Is The Alternative?

We strongly agree with Gunnar’s closing interview remarks when he says:

“The current message being sent to the public about NSAIDs is wrong. If you can buy these drugs in a convenience store then you probably think ‘they must be safe for me’. Our study adds to the evidence about the adverse cardiovascular effects of NSAIDs and confirms that they should be taken seriously, and used only after consulting a healthcare professional.”

Keep in mind that other common pain-killers, such as aspirin and acetaminophen (Tylenol), also have devastating side effects that are commonly underreported or minimized. You can read our previous writings on the topic:

Natural Alternatives That Don’t Have Killer Side Effects Exist

Given the clear evidence that pharmaceutical pain-killers have profound, even life-threatening side effects, natural alternatives should be researched and implemented. At GreenMedInfo.com we have a number of database sections that should help move the paradigm forward.
