NAFTA is starving Mexico

Since the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) became the law of the land, millions of Mexicans have joined the ranks of the hungry. Malnutrition is highest among the country’s farm families, who used to produce enough food to feed the nation.

As the blood-spattered violence of the drug war takes over the headlines, many Mexican men, women, and children confront the slow and silent violence of starvation. The latest reports show that the number of people living in “food poverty” (the inability to purchase the basic food basket) rose from 18 million in 2008 to 20 million by late 2010.

About one-fifth of Mexican children currently suffer from malnutrition. An innovative measurement applied by the National Institute for Nutrition registers a daily count of 728,909 malnourished children under five for October 18, 2011. Government statistics report that 25 percent of the population does not have access to basic food.

Somalis Under Relentless Drone Attack as U.S. Tightens Military Grip on Continent

In September, the militaries of the East African Community held joint exercises with AFRICOM, the U.S. Africa Command. Such exercises with American forces have become commonplace. The U.S. Defence Department is busily training the militaries of Mali, Chad, Niger, Benin, Botswana, Cameroon, the Central African Republic, Ethiopia, Gabon, Zambia, Uganda, Senegal, Mozambique, Ghana, Malawi and Mauretania. ECOWAS, the Economic Community of West African States, is considering asking the U.S. navy to help it out with its pirate problem. Most of the militaries of the African Union already communicate with American command-and-control equipment, requiring U.S. advisors. The overlapping entanglements have allowed the U.S. military to achieve deep penetration of the armed forces of most African nations.

CFR Paper on “Unilateral Geoengineering”

Otherwise known as “chemtrails”.

There’s a blatant scientific error on page 7, where the author “derives” that we must reduce carbon emissions by 80%.  He ignores the impact of increased CO2 concentration on plant growth.  Of course if they keep spraying aluminum in the atmosphere plant growth will be severely stunted, especially in the rainforests, where the soil is highly acidic and thus sensitive to aluminum poisoning.   It would be hugely ironic if the net impact of chemtrails was to increase CO2 equilibrium concentrations.

An 80% reduction in carbon emissions translates to maybe a 50% reduction in energy consumption in the short term, maybe 70% long term.   Ok, if food was transported from california to missouri on bicycles that might not be much of a problem.  If people heated their homes with geothermal heat pumps and solar collectors maybe they could get by with an indoor temperature of 50 degrees over the winter months.  People could adapt to this even if there was no good science behind it.  What they can’t adapt to is the massive contamination of water and agricultural land with aluminum.

Obama Seeks Permission To Lie In Response To FOIA Requests – Even To The Courts

One of the President Obama’s first promises after becoming President of the United States was a commitment to usher in a new era of unprecedented government transparency .  Instead the Obama administration has exhibited what may be an unprecedented obsession with government secrecy including blocking numerous law suits by invoking the doctrine of “State Secrets.”   The administration has even come up with an interpretation of the Patriot Act which many in Congress who have seen it claim is overly broad and bestows more power on the Executive Branch than was intended by Congress when they passed it.

Unfortunately those in Congress who have seen this document are not permitted to divulge its content, and we, the public, cannot see it because the administration has chosen to classify it as a “State Secret.”   In other words, you might be doing something that the Obama Administration believes violates the Patriot Act, but you won’t know it until they indict you for breaking a law you did not know existed (I might be breaking it just by penning and publishing this article).

Now the Obama/Holder Justice Department is attempting to re-write the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), empowering or even compelling government agencies to deny the very existence of records they know to exist if they believe they are legitimately exempted from disclosure.

Monsanto wages war on Serbian dissident


In October 2011, Nikola Aleksi, leader of Ecological Movement of Novi Sad in Serbia, was arrested and fined. Earlier on his way to a conference in Belgrade, an attempt was reportedly made on his life. And Monsanto has sued him with the threat of removing him and his family from their rented flat as “collateral.”  Why all the fuss? Nikola made a spirited speech, recorded on video, challenging the Serbian president for allowing GMOs to come into Serbia. He also challenged the Serbian government for allowing planes to spray chemtrails in the Serbian skies.

Catholics: Occupy the Vatican

“The Vatican has called for a “global public authority” and a world central bank to rule over financial affairs in the wake of the engineered economic collapse. … Vatican is calling for “a supranational authority” with worldwide scope and “universal jurisdiction” to guide economic policies and decisions. The authority will be run by the United Nations, according to the document.  It will take time to replace economic policies and in the process destroy national sovereignty, according to the Vatican.

“Of course, this transformation will be made at the cost of a gradual, balanced transfer of a part of each nation’s powers to a world authority and to regional authorities, but this is necessary at a time when the dynamism of human society and the economy and the progress of technology are transcending borders, which are in fact already very eroded in a globalized world.”

The Vatican and Nazism in Germany and Croatia

“The Vatican, which has long claimed immunity to lawsuits, is now
facing claimants seeking more than $1 billion.  Insurance commissioners from Mississippi, Missouri, Tennessee, Okalahoma, and Arkansas have joined Holocaust victims and victims of pedophile priests in filing lawsuits against the Vatican and Vatican
Bank.  The Insurance commissioners are seeking over $600 million in a
RICO (Anti Racketeering) lawsuit that has named several top Cardinals
including two former Papal Nuncios to the United States and the
Vatican Secretary of State, Cardinal Sodano, as co-conspirators with
convicted financier Martin Frankel in an unsuccessful attempt to
launder an incredible $150 billion in insurance assets.”

“Franciscan friar the Rev. Leonardo Boff, was interrogated in Rome on September 7th 1984 by the office of the office of the Inquisition, headed by Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger… The theologian, Leonardo Boff, a 44- year-old Franciscan friar, is one of
the leading exponents of a radical interpretation of Christian teachings
known as the ”theology of liberation,” which has led thousands of priests
and nuns in the region to become deeply involved with the problems of the
poor.”

No doubt the vatican assumes its place at the table of the global power elite is assured given its ecumenical authority. I have an idea, why stop with the financial centers of corruption?   It seems to me wall street was only taking its cue from the dark heart of original sin, the wiz kids of the inquisition.  The story I heard about the origins of the illuminati is that it was a reaction to vatican oppression of science and free inquiry which no doubt helped keep europe in the dark ages far longer than it would otherwise have been.

Does anyone still listen to these people?
