One World Religion: Former Israeli President Proposes Pope To Head ‘UN For Religions’

One World Religion shimon peres pope
By: The Daily Sheeple |

Can you imagine any way to bring a tumultuous world under a one world religion?

This is a good head start.

A few months back, former president Shimon Peres met with the Pope at the Vatican and proposed that the Pope head up a UN for religions.

Via The Jerusalem Post:

But the main topic of conversation was Peres’s idea to create a UN-like organization he called “the United Religions.”

Peres said the Argentina-born pontiff was the only world figure respected enough to bring an end to the wars raging in the Middle East and elsewhere in the world.

“In the past, most of the wars in the world were motivated by the idea of nationhood,” Peres said. “But today, wars are incited using religion as an excuse.”

Vatican spokesman Fr. Federico Lombardi confirmed to reporters that Peres had pitched his idea for “the United Religions” but said Francis did not commit to it.

“The pope listened, showing his interest, attention, and encouragement,” Lombardi said, adding that the pope pointed to the Pontifical Councils for Interreligious Dialogue and for Justice and Peace as existing agencies “suitable” for supporting interfaith peace initiatives.

That meeting in September was the third in a four-month period. In an interview in the Catholic Magazine Famiglia Cristiana, Peres also called for the Pope to lead the inter-religious organization in order to curb terrorism: “What we need is an organization of United Religions… as the best way to combat terrorists who kill in the name of faith.”

Of all popes in recent history, Pope Francis has also embraced what have thus far been considered pretty “radical” views for the church, including everything from sexual ethics and and an open arms policy on gay rights to Darwinism. He even delivered a speech in March 2014 where he referred to Muslims as worshipping the “one God.”

If any pope was going to head up a one world religion, this one sure seems to tow every line.

Wasn’t there a bit in Revelations about a one world religion as a signal of the end times?

One Man Connects The Dots Between The Gulf Oil Spill, UN Gun Confiscation And Mass Relocation Of Americans

Peter Sutherland an insider’s insider. Head of the UN Migration Council.

The same person who oversaw the Great Gulf Coast Holocaust in which the Gulf of Mexico suffered irreparable harm, will also be in charge if and when millions of Americans are transported to FEMA camps if the Jade Helm drills go live.

The Gulf of Mexico was “blown up” five years ago and it was no accident. The same nefarious forces, led by the same man, will be in charge when the UN is in charge of gun confiscation and the mass relocation of American citizens. Walk with me as I connect the dots between UN gun confiscation, mass and forcible relocation of American citizens to FEMA camps and the people responsible for blowing up the Gulf.

By Treaty, the UN Will Seize American Guns

The easiest dot to connect in this myriad of events which will culminate in the takeover of the United States by the United Nations, is gun confiscation.

I recently detailed how the forces connected to Jade Helm will morph, by treaty, into a Multi-national force run by the United Nations and they will seize American guns as a prelude to martial law. If you have not read the previous article in which it was clearly established that the United Nations will soon be involved in gun confiscation of privately held American guns, it would be helpful to do so before reading the rest of this article.

Any police detective will tell you that it is sometimes necessary to look at the facts of an old crime in order to solve a new crime. If one wants to understand the forces at work which are posturing to enslave America through Jade Helm, one has to first take a summary look at the forces behind the so-called Gulf Oil Spill because many of the players, one in particular, will prominently figure in what is coming.

The Genesis of Our Present Demise

Before we can solve the soon-to-be-crime in which the UN completes its pre-positioning of its assets and moves to seize American guns and impose martial law under the umbrella of a completely manufactured crisis, we need to take a retrospective peek at what happened in the Gulf Oil Spill, and it is ironic that we are doing so now on the verge of the 5th anniversary of the event.

gulf-coconspiratorsShortly following the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill, I wrote a seven part series which exposed the conspiracy, which in part, blew the lid off the event by demonstrating how the money movement prior to the explosion was orchestrated. Yes, I am saying that this was a false flag event. Proving this assertion is as easy as counting 1-2-3. The players involved in the Great Gulf Coast Holocaust were the following:

1. British Petroleum was the owner of the oil being removed from the floor of the Gulf. BP CEO Tony Hayward sold 40% of his BP holdings in the weeks prior to the spill and paid off his mortgage on his estate in Kent, England, and avoided staggering losses. And true to form involving the pattern of perpetuating a false flag event with media complicity, on June 8, 2010, less than six weeks following the oil spill, BP bought Google and Yahoo Search Terms, related to the oil spill, in an obvious attempt to conceal as much of the truth as possible from the public. This is identical to the practice recently seen when Google pinned a Washington Post article at the top of all searches on Jade Helm, covering a three day period, in an article entitled Why Jade Helm 15 Is Freaking Out the Internet. The article went on to detail how anyone who is concerned with Jade Helm is a member of the lunatic fringe. Isn’t it nice that Google protects the criminality of the elite by obfuscating the truth on their search engine?

For future reference, the man who was the CEO for BP, for 13 years, just prior to the Gulf event, was a man named Peter Sutherland and this will become a very important consideration, before the end of the article.

2. Halliburton was drilling at the base of the Deepwater Horizon. Very coincidentally, only 11 days before, on April 9, 2010, Halliburton purchased Boots and Coots for a quarter of a billion dollars. Just who is Boots and Coots? Coincidentally, they are the largest oil clean up firm in the world. And when the explosion took place 11 days later, wasn’t it fortunate that Halliburton was there armed with Boots and Coots as they capitalized on their timely good fortune? Subsequently, Halliburton’s profits increased 83% in just 3 months following the Gulf Oil Crisis subsequent to the clean-up efforts. It was simply raining coincidences back in 2010!

3. Goldman Sachs and Transocean instituted a “put option” on Transocean’s stock for preferred Transocean insiders the very morning of the explosion. Transocean boldly walked away with a $270 million dollar profit immediately following the explosion because they had doubly indemnified the rig only weeks prior to the explosion through Lloyds of London. This alone should have been enough to trigger a massive investigation. The subsequent cover-up for this event began in 2007, three years before the event, as Goldman Sachs reorganized Transocean, the owner of the destroyed oil rig, into a Cayman Island corporation. In doing so, it made Transocean virtually impossible for Congress to investigate and subsequently discipline the perpetrators.

During the Gulf crisis, Peter Sutherland had moved from BP to a non-executive CEO position with Goldman Sachs. As such, and combined with his recent BP experience, Sutherland was in a position to coordinate events.

The genesis of the coverup began with President Obama. The President got his hands dirty as well. The late Bob Chapman, while appearing on the Alex Jones Show in June of 2010, revealed that Obama’s only asset holder, Vanguard I and Vanguard II, dramatically sold off BP stock only few weeks before Gulf oil explosion. Chapman also revealed that “According to this FSB report the largest seller of BP stock in the weeks before this disaster occurred was the American investment company known as Vanguard who through two of their financial arms (Vanguard Windsor II Investor and Vanguard Windsor I Investor) unloaded over 1.5 million shares of BP stock saving their investors hundreds of millions of dollars, chief among them was President Obama. The FSB further estimates in this report that through Obama’s three accounts in the Vanguard 500 Index Fund he stands to make another $100 million over the next 10 years as their largest stock holding is in the energy giant Exxon Mobil which they believe will eventually acquire BP and all of their assets for what will be essentially a “rock bottom” price and which very predictably BP has hired Goldman Sachs to advise them on.” Watch the entire interview below.

The top five dumping institutions of BP stock just prior to the spill included Goldman Sachs Asset Management, L.P. (-4,680,822), Wachovia Bank National Association (-2,667,419) and it is important to note that Wachovia is a subsidiary of Goldman Sachs, thus, making this one tight little family of co-conspirators. We also see massive dumping of Sanders Capital, LLC (-1,371,785) and PNC Bank, National Association (-1,177,413) brings noted globalist George Soros into the conspiracy as well. And we now know, with some certainty, who orchestrated the entire event.

Peter Sutherland: A Person of Strong Interest

Many have asked if there was a central figure who coordinated this conspiracy?

If I were an unencumbered investigator and not operating under the umbrella of an agenda, I would want to look closely at a globalist named Peter Sutherland as the possible mastermind. But you see, Sutherland is not just the architect of the Gulf Oil Spill, as you will soon note, he will be behind what is coming with the United Nations in order to take down the United States.

Peter Sutherland

Peter Sutherland is an insider’s, insider. He is on the steering committee of the Bilderberg Group, he is an Honorary Chairman of the Trilateral Commission (2010-present), he was Chairman of the Trilateral Commission (Europe) (2001–2010) and Sutherland was Vice Chairman of the European Round Table of Industrialists (2006–2009). Sutherland was also the former head of the World Trade Organization and the related GATT. Sutherland is the ultimate insider.

More to the point, from 1996-2009, Sutherland was the CEO of BP. In 2009, he resigned from BP and assumed a “non-executive” CEO position with Goldman Sachs, less than a year before the Gulf Event. Sutherland was in position to know how to manipulate the Gulf event and further, he would have been the one at Goldman Sachs who was in charge of the dumping of BP assets prior to the explosion and to have orchestrated the cover-ups of Transocean and Halliburton.

Where was the FBI and the SEC through all of this?

As if this is not enough to raise eyebrows, here is where Sutherland becomes my primary person of interest in this conspiracy. In 2006, Peter Sutherland was appointed as the special representative (SRSG) on the United Nations International Migration and Development.

depopulating-the-gulfThe UN’s International Migration and Development would be in charge of large scale population movements. At one time, I believed that the Gulf was going to be evacuated and that Sutherland, who helped his corporate cronies profit from the event, would be in charge of the UN mandated evacuation of the Gulf. That still might happen, especially considering that Jesse Ventura, in his show, Conspiracy Theory, discovered an Army Corps of Engineers document granting the Corps $40 billion dollars to evacuate the Gulf. However, today, there is a much more pressing issue. I was correct when I stated that Sutherland is going to be in charge of a major UN population movement inside the United States.

The entire ecosystem of the Gulf has been damaged beyond repair because of the use of the controversial dispersant, Corexit, the people in the Gulf are being exposed to poisoned air, water and food. Much has been made of the cleanup workers from the Exxon Valdez oil spill and their ultimate fate. Most died before reaching the age of 51. Researchers, Wilma Subra and Kim Anderson et al., have detailed how many people in the Gulf cannot expect to live a normal lifespan because of the high rate of cancer causing chemicals found in Gulf subjects bloodstreams. This makes the Gulf a depopulation event by definition.

As previously mentioned, the Army Corps of Engineers have been positioned to engage in a future and direct Gulf depopulation action. According to the Army Corps of Engineers, in 2007 the US government allocated $40 billion dollars for a project to depopulate the Gulf Coast region. The Army Corps Director of publicity, S.I. Rees, downplayed the importance of the $40 billion allocation. However, the funding is available for the express purpose of relocating Gulf residents and was admitted to by Ries on air. The original document which detailed the Corps’ Gulf depopulation project is now classified and this was done after Jesse Ventura exposed the plan on his show, Conspiracy Theory, on December 10, 2010. If you would like to actually view the cover page and the first page of the document, simply web search Jesse Ventura and the Louisiana Conspiracy video and move the time bar to about 35 minutes.

Conclusion

When you see when Jade Helm 15, or its successor, morphs into the coming suppression of the American people, and we see the blue helmets on our streets, it will be Peter Sutherland in charge in his role as the Director of the UN Migration Council. And I am certain that he will handle the next crisis with the same demeanor and integrity as he handled the Gulf crisis.

Millions Of Girls Given Vaccines Secretly Spiked With Sterilization Drugs

vaccine
By: Kimberly Paxton | The Daily Sheeple –

Although some might call it a conspiracy theory, the World Health Organization, UNICEF, and the United Nations have been accused for decades of trying to secretly reduce the world’s population by hiding contraceptives in vaccines that are purported to be for other purposes.

In 1992, during a meeting at the UN headquarters in Geneva, scientists and “women’s health advocates” discussed the use of “fertility regulating vaccines, particularly the anti-Human Chorionic Gonadotropin vaccine. (source)

If you had any doubt in your mind that this was true, doctors at a Catholic hospital in Kenya are out to prove that millions of girls have been tricked into receiving an injection that will render them sterile for years.

Independent laboratory testing has confirmed that a tetanus vaccine given to over 2.3 million young women in Kenya contained the HCG antigen.

HCG was developed by the WHO as a long-term contraceptive. It causes the body to attack a fetus through an antibody response, and can cause spontaneous abortions for 3 years after the woman is injected with the drug.

Dr. Muhame Ngare of Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi said:

We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen. They were all laced with HCG.

This proved right our worst fears; that this WHO campaign is not about eradicating neonatal tetanus but a well-coordinated forceful population control mass sterilization exercise using a proven fertility regulating vaccine. This evidence was presented to the Ministry of Health before the third round of immunization but was ignored. (source)

Perhaps unsurprisingly, the Kenyan health ministry has denied that this is the case, offering up claims that many women who received the vaccine became pregnant afterwards. But Dr. Ngare (who, incidentally, is pro-vaccine, just not pro-secret-sterilizing-additive) stands firm in his assertion and provides a convincing argument.

Either we are lying or the government is lying. But ask yourself, ‘What reason do the Catholic doctors have for lying?’ The Catholic Church has been here in Kenya providing health care and vaccinating for 100 years for longer than Kenya has existed as a country.

Usually we give a series three shots over two to three years, we give it anyone who comes into the clinic with an open wound, men, women or children. If this is intended to inoculate children in the womb, why give it to girls starting at 15 years? You cannot get married till you are 18.” The usual way to vaccinate children is to wait till they are six weeks old.

The only time tetanus vaccine has been given in five doses is when it is used as a carrier in fertility regulating vaccines laced with the pregnancy hormone, Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) developed by WHO in 1992. (source)

Hmmm…so why would this vaccine only be given to young, fertile women? Since tetanus is a type of bacterial infection that occurs after a person is wounded with a rusty or dirty object, wouldn’t it stand to reason that this vaccine, if given in the interest of protecting patients from the infection, be given to both genders, and people of a variety of ages? Are girls at the height of fertility somehow more likely to injure themselves in such a way?

The Kenyan government has a glib answer. Apparently, they wish to proactively inoculate babies in the womb against tetanus, which causes 550 deaths per year.

Catholic priests across Kenya are advising their congregants to refuse these vaccinations.

Phase Two Of Jade Helm 15 Is Emerging

UN flag

As many of us have suspected since the announcement of Jade Helm 15 and their desire to “Master the Human Domain”, there is a lot to Jade Helm 15 that is not being released. We know the “drill” is a “dissident extraction” exercise which many of us fear could go live at any time. A week ago, I received information that the United Nations, including Russian troops, were going to have a presence in the drill. Subsequently, I reported that the United Nations would have an “observer” in every unit in every part of the Jade Helm 15 drill.

Common sense would dictate that Jade Helm 15 personnel do not need 60 days (July 15-September 15) to practice/complete extraction drills. Most researchers as well as my insider sources concur there is more to Jade Helm than the announced purpose. Although the drill is not scheduled to start in over 3 months, it actually began in Ft. Lauderdale with extraction of dissidents on March 27, 2015.

Is there a phase two to the Jade Helm 15 drill? The short answer is “yes”.

Phase One: Potential Dissident Extraction

Phase Two: Gun confiscation

 

Jade Helm 15 will not likely stop with two phases and I know for a fact that this list of Jade Helm 15 applications will grow.  Not surprisingly, the United Nations will be involved every step of the way. Now that I have been provided with a two phase operation from trusted insider sources, can these claims be supported by publicly known facts?

Phase One: Dissident Extraction

On Friday March 27, 2015, I was interviewed by Nik Rajkovic, a news reporter for NewsRadio 740 KTRH in Houston. In the course of the interview, Rajkovic informed me that he had interviewed a Sheriff’s Deputy and was told that Jade Helm 15 was practicing “extractions of dissidents”.

A review of the events in Ft. Lauderdale on March 27, 2015, clearly demonstrated that a dissident extraction drill was indeed being conducted.

Did you ever think you would see this in America? This is an extraction of dissidents drill in Florida.

Did you ever think you would see this in America? This is an extraction of dissidents drill in Florida.

The “dissidents” were then transported to waiting white vans for transport and then this was followed by removal of the drill’s participants to the now infamous black helicopters.

The United Nations Prepositioning of Military Assets Began In the Summer of 2014

Last summer reports, photos and videos began to surface regarding the entry of UN military equipment on American soil. The following represents some of the images of these reports dating back to June of 2014.

 un tanks

Sightings of these vehicles have been widely reported beginning last Spring. And this has led some to suspect that an occupation force is being mobilized.

Don’t believe the validity of these still photos? Then please explain the following video? (Foul language: Viewer Discretion Advised)

Phase Two: Gun Confiscation and the UN Small Arms Treaty

Reportedly, Phase Two of Jade Helm will consist of gun confiscation and there is ample evidence pointing to this strong possibility and it started with a very concerning act that involved the Secretary of State, John Kerry, and President Obama as Kerry signed the illegal and unconstitutional UN Small Arms Treaty which effectively bans all private ownership of guns. There is one provision in the treaty that has received absolutely no attention in our mainstream media and that is the section having to do with confiscation and the use of foreign troops:

State parties to the ATT “may seek assistance” in implementing the Treaty. The ATT indicates that a voluntary trust fund was established to promote the establishment of a multinational gun confiscation program.

I have learned that JH 15 will also use its “Mutli-national” partners in the upcoming drill, thus enhancing the strong possibility that foreign troops will be used to seize American guns. Therefore, it is difficult to believe that gun confiscation is not on the list of activities for JH 15 and that my sources are correct.

More proof for Jade Helm morphing into a gun confiscation drill comes from the United Nations itself. Under the heading, “Hiding in plain sight”, the United Nations previously advertised for the following position in the Summer of 2014:

Posting Title: Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration Officer, P4

Job Title Code: DISARMAMENT, DEMOBILIZATION AND REINTEGRATION OFFICER

Department/Office: Department of Peacekeeping Operations

Duty Station: New York

Job Description: A minimum of seven years of progressively responsible experience in disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration or related area. Experience working within peacekeeping, peace-building or development programmes operations is desirable. Experience with small arms control, conflict/post-conflict crisis management, economic recovery is desirable. Experience coordinating multiple partner agencies, funds or programmes is desirable.

Analysis of the Job Description

What is highly significant is that nobody seems to be talking about this illegitimate imposition of foreign troops on our soil and this notion is represented in the phrase “conflict/post conflict management“! What is conflict/post conflict management? Conflict management is another euphemism reserved for one of two possibilities. First, this implies there will be a civil war, hence the reason for the Jade Helm 15 drills. With over 260+ senior military officers fired by Obama for not embracing the future need to fire on American citizens, speaks clearly to this point. Ask yourself, what would be the one thing that this administration could do that would guarantee a violent response from many of the people? That one thing would be to start seizing private guns. Foreign troops will be operating under the UN flag in the pursuit of this agenda. Obama is in the midst of purging the military leadership who will not necessarily and  indiscriminately fire upon American citizens who would resist having their Second Amendment rights obliterated by this present administration. Secondly, in order to create the manufactured need to impose martial law, the administration would need a pretext, a false flag event. I have been covering the pretext possibilities for over a  year. In fact, the pretext has been rehearsed repeatedly since last fall (see FEMA and DHS drills below).

Peacekeeping is normally the euphemism reserved for gun confiscation and population subjugation. If there is any doubt to the veracity of this claim, the following phrase “Experience with small arms control“, should remove any doubt as to what is coming. Further this job description uses phrases such as “demobilization“. Further, the phrase “reintegration” is also significant. By definition, what is a re-education camp designed for? Quite simply put, it is designed for reintegration back into society with a more politically appropriate attitude. Back into society from where? This question can be answered with a pair of four letter words, FEMA Camp.

UN controlled FEMA Camp

UN controlled FEMA Camp

It is clear that this administration is going after the guns and it will rely heavily on its “Mutli-national partners to accomplish this goal. Generally, this kind of bold move would require the implemetation of a false flag attack in order to minimize public resistance. In 2013, a plethora of potential false flag events were rehearsed by FEMA, DHS and their “foreign partners”. Gun confiscation is clearly part of what is meant by “Master the Human Domain”.

What does “Master the human domain” mean? Is it a euphemism for the complete subjugation of the civilian population of the United States? JH 15 is our version of the Reichstag fire and the “Night of the broken glass” event all rolled into one.

What does “Master the human domain” mean? Is it a euphemism for the complete subjugation of the civilian population of the United States? JH 15 is our version of the Reichstag fire and the “Night of the broken glass” event all rolled into one.

Rehearsing for Martial Law

In the Fall of 2013, FEMA, DHS and select foreign entities extensively rehearsed for the following contingencies in the following list of preparedness and disaster drills planned and carried out over a six week period:

1. FEMA purchase orders for over $14.2 million for MREs and heater meals were delivered to Region III by October 1st, 2013.  

2. FEMA purchase orders for 22 million pouches of emergency water were delivered to Region III by October 1st, 2013.

3. FEMA purchase orders for $13.6 million for MREs and heater meals were delivered to Austin, TX. by October 1st, 2013.

4. $11 million in antibiotics were delivered to FEMA region III by October 1st ordered by CDC

5. Nine-week training course for UN Peacekeepers in CONUS to learn Urban Warfare, English, and US weapons systems beginning in late July 2013 for 386,000 troops and the “drill” was wrapped up by October 1, 2013

6. Great Shakeout Drill conducted on October 17, 2013

7. More Than 1,000 Banks participated in the  National Cyber-Attack Drill Oct. 16-17, Oct. 23-24

8. Quantum Dawn’ was a Cyber-Attack Bank Drill

9. GridEx2 Nov. 13-14, 2013, which was a simulated EMP attack upon the American power grid. Both the Russians and the Chinese were allowed to participate. 

Let’s focus on#5. Why would foreign troops (i.e. UN Peacekeepers) practice urban warfare and be taught English unless they were part of a martial law occupation force? And what do martial law occupation forces do? They round up undesirable citizens, seize guns and relocate populations for final disposition. Buried within the myriad of these 2013 drills, it is easy to conclude that somewhere in this mess is a false flag drill designed to set into motion the implementation of martial law under the auspices of the United Nations. Jade Helm 15 is the manifestation of all this planning.

Conclusion

There are two phases emerging from Jade Helm 15. These two phases are bad enough. However, there are certain to be more as the nation enters into what could be a long, hot summer.

UN Accuses Saudi Arabia Of Killing Yemeni Civilians

yemen

Make no mistake. Yemen is Obama’s war. He’s using Saudi-led terror-bombing to serve US interests – to regain control of its former client state.

It’s high time this naked aggression was universally condemned. Noncombatant men, women and children are being willfully murdered in cold blood.

After two weeks of terror-bombing, the UN finally noticed. Special Rapporteur for Internally Displaced Persons Chaloka Beyani accused Saudi Arabia of deliberately killing Yemeni civilians.

Saudi-led warplanes bombed civilian neighborhoods, the Mazraq refugee camp, hospitals, schools and “other civilian buildings,” said Beyani.

Power and water facilities were struck. So were Yemen’s largest food storage and dairy buildings.

Beyani called terror-bombing attacks “a grave violation against some of the most vulnerable of the vulnerable civilians.”

Scores of children were killed. Hundreds of Yemeni civilians were murdered or maimed for life.

Estimates of civilian deaths and injuries are conservative. On Wednesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) estimated 643 deaths, including 74 children – another 2,226 injured.

The true toll may be double these figures. As fighting continues, expect them to be many multiples higher ahead.

Tens of thousands may die before conflict ends. Expect countless thousands more to be gravely injured.

Lives, welfare and futures are being irreparably destroyed – victims of US imperial arrogance, the same ugly business occurring everywhere America shows up.

Beyani warned the international community “to prepare for massive displacement and humanitarian crisis as conflict torn Yemen further descends into chaos and civilians flee the fighting.”

“The international community must prepare for a worst case scenario,” he said.

“While efforts to reach a diplomatic solution are essential, the picture on the ground is extremely bleak and humanitarian responses must be stepped up as a matter of urgency.”

“Unless rapidly resolved, the crisis could lead to mass displacement in the wake of heavy and ongoing fighting and airstrikes.”

“Those responsible for violations of international humanitarian and human rights law, including the indiscriminate targeting of civilians, must be held accountable.”

Conflict affects 14 of Yemen’s 22 governorates. Perhaps the entire country will be devastated before it ends.

Over 100,000 are internally or externally displaced so far – in just two weeks of conflict.

If continued for months or years like in other US regional wars, the lives and welfare of millions of Yemenis are at risk.

Obama bears full responsibility for slow-motion genocide in multiple conflict theaters. Endless US direct and proxy wars continue.

Iranian Parliament Speaker Ali Larijani accused Saudi Arabia of committing crimes against humanity in Yemen by bombing civilian areas.

Iran’s Judiciary Chief Sadeq Amoli Larijani warned Saudi officials to stop terror-bombing Yemen or face consequences for its actions.

“Saudi Arabia’s aggression against Yemen is a very regrettable event in the Muslim world which should end as soon as possible through talks and negotiations,” he said.

“Otherwise, this blatant aggression of a government which claims (to be leading) Islam, against the Muslim people of another country who want to decide their fate will not remain unanswered.”

Iranian Foreign Minister Javad  Zarif and Deputy Foreign Minister for Arab and African Affairs Hossein Amir Abdollahian urged an immediate halt to fighting on all sides.

Crisis conditions must be settled diplomatically, they said.

Meanwhile, Saudi-led terror-bombing continues – with full US support and encouragement.

A devastating humanitarian crisis worsens daily. Yemen’s soul is up for grabs. So are the lives of its 25 million people.

Bill Gates Is Recruiting “Junior Globalists”

Quite obviously, the United Nations is not our friend. Their disdain for family values, the Christian religion and the manipulation, brainwashing and thought control of our youth makes the UN one of the most despicable organizations on the planet. As Agenda 21 policies increasingly are implemented across our country, our young people are increasingly being propagandized to accept the mandates of the New World Order.

Case In Point: The Vehicle Mileage Tax

In another defeat for humanity and liberty and another victory for the globalist Agenda 21 policies, Oregon has become the first state to implement a vehicle mileage tax (VMT) whereby a motorist is taxed by the number of miles that they drive rather than the amount of gasoline used.

A little widget plugs into the Onboard Diagnostics (OBD) port that are on all cars manufactured since the middle of the 1990’s. The device subsequently plugs into your car’s computer, where the data about your mileageis recorded.  However, this is just the beginning for the “big brotherism” as the system is also capable of monitoring  your speed, rate of acceleration or whether you are being a good citizen by wearing a seatbelt. Oregon and their VMT is merely a beta test and will serve as a means to extract more money from its citizens and to begin to implement increasingly punitive Agenda 21 policies.

As devastating as programs, such as VMT’s are to you and me, many of our teenage children are not the least bit phased by the implementation of Agenda 21 policies throughout our political social structure.

Increasingly, young adults of driving age are opting to not want to drive or own a car.

A world without cars. The propaganda is working.

A world without cars. The propaganda is working.

A full one-third of all young people in the 16-25 demographic have never had a driver’s license and they don’t want one. The Agenda 21 notion that the globalists want us out of our cars is working. VMT’s are designed to make it cost prohibitive to drive and this will nudge the older driver off the road. Educational propaganda is accomplishing this goal with the young.

The UN Is Recruiting “Junior Globalists”

global-citizen-nights

Bill and Melinda Gates have initiated an offshoot of Agenda 21 programs known as Global Citizen Nights.  Global citizen nights are designed to lure in children and have them engage in some kind of community service with regard to the globalist agenda (e.g. biking vs driving, water conservation, etc.). In exchange for their good deeds, the participating teens will earn points and then be able to exchange their “globalist points” for high valued items such as concert tickets.

When one joins this globalist propaganda program, they are told that “Bill Gates recognizes that individuals have diverse passions and offers the Global Citizen network as one where, ‘some people…will pick women’s reproductive rights, some will pick agriculture. And then there are NGOs in each of those areas that you can volunteer for, give money to, and feel connected.”

Teens are sent tweets, emails and Facebook messages encouraging them to get involved in these UN mandated programs. The targeted teens are given choices to be involved in such “worthy” endeavors as

1. Sustainability

2. Food and hunger

3. Water and Sanitation

4. Health (i.e. vaccines)

5. Women and Girls (i.e. reproduction issues and negative population growth)

6. Education (i.e. Common Core)

7. Ebola Action Center  (author’s note: And you thought we were done with Ebola). 

On one positive note, the Global Citizen Nights are intended to replace the drug-infested raves. However, rather than destroying their bodies with drugs such as ecstasy, the youth are destroying their minds with globalist propaganda.  One of the central themes of the Global Citizen Nights is the deliberate denigration of national sovereignty (e.g. “sovereignty is so 20th century) and the adoption of the globalist agenda at an age when young people’s minds are prone to extremist thinking.

The Biggest Threat to Our Youth

“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, and forfeit his soul?

Mark 8:36

The biggest threat to our children is not the loss of the appreciation for the values of this country. This biggest threat to our young people is the loss of their soul. Agenda 21 so disparages the Christian religion, we Christians may soon be forced underground in order to continue with our worship. The Agenda 21 bias shows up in many of the leaders statements about Christianity. For example, President Obama has made the following statements regarding Christianity:

“Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation”
“We do not consider ourselves a Christian nation.”

Conclusion

As Christians make a threat assessment with regard to the implementation of Agenda 21 policies, it is important that we, as Christians, come to know our enemy. This is best exemplified by the following:

“Among other things, the agenda called for a Global Biodiversity Assessment of the State of the Earth. Prepared by the UN Environmental Programme (UNEP), this 1140 page document armed UN leaders with the “ecological basis, and moral authority” they needed to validate their global management system. The GBA concludes on page 863 that “the root causes of the loss of biodiversity are embedded in the way societies use resources. This world view is characteristic of large scale societies, heavily dependent on resources brought from considerable distances. It is a world view that is characterized by the denial of sacred attributes in nature, a characteristic that became firmly established about 2000 years ago with the Judeo-Christian-Islamic religious traditions. Eastern cultures with religious traditions such as Buddhism, Jainism and Hinduism did not depart as drastically from the perspective of humans as members of a community of beings including other living and non-living elements.” In other words Christians are to blame for the sorry state of the world because their religions do not involve worshiping “sacred nature.”

Christian parents need to perform their due diligence and assume responsibility for the development of the Christian spirit within their children. This begins by educating them about the evils of Agenda 21 and keeping them away from the Hitler Youth Movement type of organizations such as the Bill and Melinda Gates organization known as the Global Citizen Nights. When you hear the phrase “they are coming for your kids”, you need to take heed.

The Obama Youth Movement And The Seizing Of American Children

Hitler youth 4

There is presently a massive conspiracy designed to separate you from your children and give the government complete control over your children. To put it simply, Health and Human Services (HHS)  and their state level emissary, Children Protective Services (CPS) are engaged in a conspiracy which will culminate in (1) the Agenda 21 designed breakdown of the family; (2) the eradication of any semblance of parental authority over children; and, (3) unbridled and unfettered access to seizing children from the home in unlimited quantities for whatever nefarious purposes which might dictate the volume of child seizures.

The Plot Is International and Begins with the UN

This program emanates from a partnership between various United Nations organizations and ICF, acting on behalf of HHS, CPS and Obamacare (i.e. The Affordable Health Care Act). The evidence in this article, along with the included links, will demonstrate that when Obamacare is fully operational, our families, specifically our children will be living in a Hitler Youth Movement hellish nightmare in which the state owns and can seize your children.

After reviewing HHS, CPS and UN documents. What is being presently reported in the alternative media is merely the tip of the iceberg with regard to HHS’ intentions toward the ultimate outcome of the children in this country. After reviewing the documents, there is no doubt that Obama is representing international interests which will seek to remove as many children as possible from the homes of their parents in the spirit of the Hitler Youth Movement.

But first let me quickly review the recent revelations of the HHS/CPS/Obamacare intention to conduct what I have dubbed as “home invasion interventions.”

Obamacare Home Invasions and Interventions

According to a previously unreported Obamacare regulation, that has managed to escape “scrutiny” from the mainstream media, millions of American families will be targeted for home invasion by the forces of the Federal government in the name of preventing parental neglect resulting in disabilities in their children. And the Fourth Amendment be damned, as of this past January 1, 2014, Federal officials may enter your home without a warrant in order to “intervene” for the purpose of saving “high risk” children.

Obamacare’s Definition of High Risk

The exposure of the extreme and intrusive nature of Obamacare through home invasion visits is finally seeing the light of day in the alternative media. However, this exposure is grossly understated. As a starting point, I will briefly review what is making the rounds in the alternative media. According to Human Health Services, your family is eligible for this Hitler style for “intervention” in the following situations:

1. Families where mom is not yet 21.

2. Families where someone is a tobacco user.

3. Families where children have low student achievement, developmental delays, or disabilities.

4. Families with individuals who are serving or formerly served in the armed forces, including such families that have members of the armed forces who have had multiple deployments outside the United States. 

5. Although this is not being widely reported, homeschoolers and their families will be targeted for “interventions” as will be families who object to having their children take vaccines.  

There is no question that all of the above categories, warrants a home invasion followed by “remediation.”  The visits are not being conducted by HHS officials as has been reported in several publications. The home invasion visits are being conducted by CPS on behalf of HHS.

HHS has designed a detailed 110 page policy manual which focuses on the criteria constituting child neglect. This policy manual which is the guide created by HHS for CPS’ home intervention visits makes the above criteria, presently being reported in the alternative media, look tame by comparison.

HHS, CPS and the Criminalization of Parenthood

In the 110 page HHS/CPS manual, the variables which comprise child neglect, worthy of government intervention is frightening beyond any words I can find to express their undisguised intentions. This entire document which will serve as the field manual by CPS in support of Obamacare undermines parental authority to a level that is beyond belief.

“We are from HHS and we are here to help you.”

How many of you were ever grounded by your parents and not permitted to play outside with your friends? This is now illegal under the HHS/CPS policy manual. They label the treatment as neglect by isolation. There are no time frames set forth which constitutes isolation and it is left to the field representative. This obviously erodes parental discipline.

If your child is judged to be underachieving in school, this is referred to as educational neglect and is worthy of governmental intervention. Further, if your child is absent for five days in any one month from school, the same allegation would be made against the parent.

If your child has ADD or ADHD, you could be accused of neglect because the document details how this can be somehow caused by poor nutrition, although the variables associated with the cause are not specified.

The document goes out of its way to specify that poverty and neglect are not inextricably linked. Then the document goes out of its way to link poverty with child neglect. Read between the lines America. As we already are aware, many poor children who go missing from scandals such as Jerry Sandusky’s Second Mile Foundation, the infamous Franklin Scandal and last year’s CPS scandal with the 78 missing wards of the state in Oklahoma, frequently end up being put into child sex trafficking rings operated and funded by such notables as DynCorps and HSBC bank.

Of course, no Obama inspired program would be complete without an attack upon the Second Amendment. Obamacare is no exception as one of the criteria for child neglect  are parents who are also guns.

The presence of alcohol in the home is a trigger for an allegation of neglect and subsequent “intervention.” Of course, alcoholic parents can present a clear and present danger to a child’s well-being. However, in the policy manual the conditions for concern over alcohol do not detail the amount and percentage of the family resources involved necessary to obtain alcohol. In other words, one can of beer in the home can be considered to constitute child neglect by the Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If your child has engages in any type of illicit or criminal behavior, your family is at risk. Raise your hands if you ever smoked pot before the age of 18, or drank as a teen, or engaged in any kind of sexual activity before the age of 18, ever stayed out past curfew, or ever shoplifted? IF your children ever engages in these and a multitude of other transgressions, you are in danger of losing your children. This also means that if your child is ever involved in a fight in school or is assigned detention, the school will be required to report the behavior to the HHS/CPS and you can expect to have a “home invasion intervention” session with your friendly Obamacare CPS fieldworker.

If you are ever late picking up your child from daycare or from school aftercare, you will now be reported to CPS.

If you have ever been depressed or have been treated for any mental disorder (e.g. PTSD, anxiety, etc.), you are at risk for losing your children.

Even illegal immigrant families are not immune from this insanity. Children are judged by the field worker to not be fully acculturated, do not properly speak the language, exhibits signs of being homesick and is judged to have not formed an unspecified number of friends and formed a cohesive social network, allegations of neglect can be made.

I would invite the reader to spend some time reviewing the document which will be serving as the policy manual for the forced home inspections. Please note that when the reader gets beyond the flowery language and professed concern for children, that the language is written so broadly that virtually any human condition, any family circumstance or child’s behavior can be interpreted as child neglect. There is literally no end to the tyranny that awaits the art of parenting in the present day.

The important thing to note is the use of language by this manual. Parents who are deemed by an Obamacare CPS field worker, operating under the HHS flag, to be neglectful towards their children are considered to have created “disabilities” within their children. As the reader will soon discover, the use of the term “disabilities” is key to understanding how far this administration is willing to go to seize children for some nefarious purpose.

Sadly, this is still only the beginning. There is far more to be concerned about beginning with who is ultimately responsible for these outrages.

Meet the Creators of the State Sponsored Child Kidnapping Rings

The primary author for this insane manual for HHS/CPS and their designed home invasion interventions is Diane DePanfilis, Ph.D., M.S.W.  She is the Associate Dean for. Research and an Associate Professor of Social Work at the University of Maryland. More importantly she is a co-editor of the Handbook on Child Protection Practice. In other words, DePanfills has been a major player in the unconstitutional practices we see in CPS in all 50 states. As if this is not concerning enough, all of the other contributing authors have their professional origins and affiliations with the same organization.

Lindsay Ritter Taylor fromCaliber, an ICF International Company

Matthew Shuman, M.S.W, A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company

Jean  Strohl,  A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company,

Jeannie Newman, M.S.W,M.I.B.S., A consultant with Caliber, an ICF International Company

It was at this point, I smelled a rat. We have the primary author being a CPS author designed to teach their field operatives on the methods of how to abuse parents and undermine parental authority. And all of the contributing authors come from the exact same corporation, ICF. At this point, it is prudent to ask the question, who is ICF?

ICF Is the Biggest Player That You Have Never Heard Of

ICF International partners with government and commercial clients to deliver consulting services and technology solutions in climate change, energy, environment, transportation, social programs, defense, and homeland security markets. In my mind, this established ICF as a major player in the introduction and implementation of the globalist agenda by designing matching Federal programs. And as it turned out they are a major player in Obamacare through their subsidiary acquisition, Caliber Associates.

Caliber is an “established leader in providing research, consulting, and innovation in human services and human resource issues.” ICF acquired Caliber in 2005 in order “to serve HHS, the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Department of Defense, and the U.S. Department of Education.”  Caliber Associates and their four contributing authors to the HHS/CPS field manual, which will be used to enforce child welfare regulations, was the undeniable link to Obamacare through this field manual. But as I discovered, the rabbit hole went even deeper.

After I found the co-authors of the HHS/CPS policy manual which will guide these forced home inspections, I smelled the distinct odor of the United Nations and Agenda 21 and sure enough, this was exactly what I found.

The United Nations and Obamacare

At times, I feel that I have the globalist playbook and I am able to often anticipate their next move. Please allow me to briefly illustrate how the globalists have operated in another area, education, and then draw the parallel to how the UN is deeply involved in Obamacare.

The Common Core Curriculum, which is sweeping the nation’s education system, was the product of “Education for All.”  Education for All comes from the United Nations education arm, the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Common Core went from UNESCO to the National Governors Association who in turn farmed out the development of the details to various NGO’s which in turn sent the standards to each state for implementation. This is the standard model that the globalists follow when implementing a controversial program and Obamacare follows a similar pattern as did Common Core.

There is no doubt that the provisions of allegedly protecting children in Obamacare, originated with the United Nations

Why do they want our kids?

In the United Nations document entitled, Human Rights, Persons with Disabilities, ICF and the UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (Training toolkit), implementation for programs designed to help people, children in particular, with disabilities, came from the World Health Organization (WHO) [Page  36], UNESCO [Page 37], the International Labour Organization (ILO) [Page 36] and the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF)[Page 38]. As one can see from the title, ICF and the UN have partnered to protect people/children with disabilities.

Conclusion

Please remember that earlier in the article, I made the point that the HHS/CPS field manual referred to neglected children as children who have disabilities. It is quite apparent that any of the conditions listed in the HHS/CPS manual will produce children who have disabilities. Under this guise, I can draw no other conclusion than Obamacare is ultimately state sponsored child slavery.

Under Obamacare, virtually every aspect of parenting is criminalized. Any child can be considered to have a disability for which the state is the only legitimate treatment source. When Obama was first running for President in 2008, he promised to build a civilian security force that “was just as strong, just as well-funded as our military.” And when one combines this conspiracy with Obama’s Executive Order 13603 which calls for a mandatory civilian conscription to complement a coming military draft, it is clear that this lunatic is planning to enslave a large segment of the population and he will obtain many of his conscripts from Obamacare. And many of you who are familiar with Agenda 21 and their expressed views toward parental rights and the rights of children, do not need me to make connect the dots, you already have done so.

Unfortunately, there are no reliable statistics which will tell the American public how many of its children have been abducted under these circumstances because the abduction statistics show up as a CPS intervention. One thing we can be sure of is that your parental rights are gone as you are merely the temporary caregiver for the state when it comes to who has authority over your children.

My advice to all parents, don’t answer the door when you see the lady ringing your doorbell.

I cannot see any way out of this dilemma than to resist through the use of force. The Obamacare goons will NOT gain entry into my home while I am still breathing. I predict that HHS/CPS will soon be armed because they will, and should, meet massive resistance from the citizens.

America, we must resist this heinous tyranny with every means at our disposal. 

Will you protect your children?

America Is Being Conquered Through The Corporate Control Of Water

tap water faucet dripping

Millions of children under five die every year due to toxic germ-infested unsafe drinking water. This mean that almost four babies a minute die from a lack of water according to UN-Water’s estimations.

In the 2014 World Water Report released on the eve of World Water Day, the UN said that 768 million people do not have adequate access to water, 2.5 billion do not have access to improved sanitation.

Such coordinated policies, according to the UN, include revising pricing practices to ensure that water and energy are sold at rates that reflect their real cost and environmental impact more accurately. Furthermore, the UN argued that the massive scope of investments needed to develop durable infrastructure requires that the private sector play a major role in supplementing public expenditure.

Essentially, the UN argues that if we do not allow the corporations to control water and price gouge the customers, that the world will continue to see massive death related to a lack of clean, usable water. In short, the UN is advocating for corporate control over all of water.

America is under attack in so many ways, it is difficult to count.

Along these lines, there is presently a three pronged globalist plot designed to subjugate the people of this country. These three elements include: (1) controlling the nations water supplies by creating massive debt forcing governments to relinquish control over its water supplies; (2) private individuals and corporations are acquiring and hording massive amounts of water; and, (3) the Environmental Protection Agency is presently engaged in activities, on behalf of the UN’s Agenda 21 policies, to use the control of water to also control food production and eliminate private property ownership.

The Path to American Totalitarianism

If a totalitarian government desired to control the people of the United States, garrisoning the country with an army of occupation would be extremely difficult, if not impossible. The United States has 315 million people which own 300+ million plus handguns and the country occupies a good portion of a continent. These are daunting challenges to occupying the United States.

Most military strategists will tell you that it takes about one soldier for every 50 citizens to effectively garrison a country. This means that an army which would effectively garrison this country would have to be over six million strong! Even for the Chinese, this would be a difficult task. There are simpler and more efficient ways to control a country than military occupation.

How to Successfully Occupy the United States

History tells us that to successfully occupy the United States, one would be better off controlling essential life-sustaining resources instead of attempting to garrison the country. What are these essential resources?

Conquering America by controlling essential resources.

Conquering America by controlling essential resources.

To control a population such as the United States, one would have to control what Abraham Maslow called the essential elements for survival, namely, food, water and shelter. How best to control food, water and shelter than to reduce the diversification of ownership over these resources and history has produced an effective model to describe how to effectively control these essential elements of survival.

As the Roman Empire declined in influence and power, Feudalism replaced the nation-state government. The feudal lord was one of the few employers in the fourth and the fifth centuries. The feudal lords owned most of the land and nearly all the resources. Today, the specter of feudalism has shape-shifted into a global corporatocracy headed by the central bankers, the United Nations and their Agenda 21 policies. The global corporations are constructing this brand of neo-feudalism right before our eyes.

The following lays out how the banksters, through their corporations will control humanity by controlling water.

Phase One: Debt Enslavement Leads to Control of Water

Both history and current events demonstrate that the more debt a country acquires, the more at risk that country is to losing control over its infrastructure and in particular, its water supplies to private interests.

What do countries do when they are being strangled by debt? The answer is simple, they simply borrow more money. As America’s aging infrastructure falls further into disrepair, the various levels of government will be forced to borrow more money in order to keep its water supplies safe. This has been done before and the results were devastating to the country borrowing money.

The World Bank and Bechtel’s control of Bolivian water led to massive civil disobedience and violence.

The World Bank and Bechtel’s control of Bolivian water led to massive civil disobedience and violence.

Bolivia, in 2000, is the poster child for what happens to a country when it borrows money to fix its water issues. The Bolivian case in point is exemplified by the fact that the country borrowed money from the predatory World Bank in order to fix its water issues. The World Bank brought in Bechtel Corporation to fix Bolivia’s water issues, however, Bolivia predictably defaulted on its World Bank loan obligations and their water supplies went into receivership as prices skyrocketed by 400%. Further the Bolivians lost the right to trap rainwater and reuse irrigation water.

The exact scheme is also underway in Lima, Peru, where the typical poor family pays private vendors up to $3 per cubic meter to collect contaminated water in buckets while the elite pay 30 cents per cubic meter for treated water that pours out of taps in their homes. Also, in India, some families spend a quarter of their income on water. Debt manipulation, for the ultimate purpose of controlling water, is not just in play in the third world. Very soon, America’s crushing debt load combined with a quickly declining water infrastructure will lead officials in the US.

Massive protests were held in Peru over the privatization of its water supplies by the UN and its corporate minions.

Massive protests were held in Peru over the privatization of its water supplies by the UN and its corporate minions.

The derivative debt has paralyzed the economies of Europe and the United States. Debt default, followed by the banker bailouts will lead to private entities controlling our essential resources.

How long will it be until the globalists have to bail out the American economy while we continue on our trek towards unsustainable debt? When America’s economy falters, the bankers, armed with their central bank printing presses, will come to the rescue. The price for their intervention, judging by what happened in Bolivia, will be the total control over our infrastructure. Collecting rainwater and purifying stream water to drink, have already become illegal acts. As the UN has recently called for, all water will eventually be obtained through the public private partnership corporations and you can bet, as history has set the precedent, the price of water will get very expensive.

Illegal to conserve. What ever happened to Agenda 21′s conservation movement?

Illegal to conserve. What ever happened to Agenda 21′s conservation movement?

States like Colorado, Utah and Washington have already made it illegal to trap rain water and use these resources for such purposes as drinking and irrigation.

In Douglas County, Colorado, just south of metropolitan Denver, engineers conducted a study on how rainwater collection affects aquifer function and health as well as groundwater supplies. The study revealed that when private parties collect rainwater on their properties, this serves to reduce the demand on local water facilities and improves conservation efforts. Based upon this research, trapping rainwater should be encouraged. However, conservation is not the goal of modern day water management, political and personal control of the citizenry is the final objective.

The Bolivian water experience is already underway in the United States. Did we really think that this was only going to happen in Bolivia? Similar projects are underway in Manila, Pakistan and San Francisco. Yes, this is correct; Bechtel now has a contract with San Francisco’s city government to upgrade the city’s water system. Bechtel employees are working side by side with city workers in a privatization move that people-in-the-know fear will lead to an eventual take-over of San Francisco ’s water system and create a fiasco similar to the one in Bolivia. The wolf is at the door as massive debt will soon cause the US to lose control over our water. This is all part of an Agenda 21 plot to control the water of the United States in order to subjugate the people and to make a lot of money in the process.

The Inbred Relationship Among the Government, Bechtel and the United Nations

bechtel-corruption

How interconnected are the global corporations to the United States Government, the United Nations and Agenda 21? Before the cries which will challenge me to don my tin foil hat before writing about a water conspiracy, I would ask that you please first consider the following list of Bechtel employees who have moved into major policy making positions both in the United States Government and the United Nations.

Riley P. Bechtel, Bechtel’s CEO served on the President Bush’s (43) Export Council (4/24/03)

George Schultz. Shortly after assuming his new position in Bechtel, President Reagan recruited Schultz to Washington to serve as Secretary of State.

Caspar Weinburger, Reagan’s Secretary of Defense was a former Bechtel general counsel.

W. K. Davis was a Bechtel vice-president for nuclear development before he was appointed as Reagan’s Deputy Secretary of Energy and administrative head of the Atomic Energy Commission.

William Casey, a former Bechtel consultant served in a number of government positions including chairman of the SEC under Nixon,  head of the Export-Import bank under President Ford, and director of the CIA under Reagan.

Richard Helm, who later became a ‘consultant’ to  Bechtel, had earlier been a CIA director under Nixon.

William Simon, Nixon’s Treasury secretary, was hired by Bechtel as a consultant.

Ross Connelly, CEO of Bechtel Energy Resources  Corporation (retired), was appointed by George W. Bush (41) in June of 2001 to the Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC). The OPIC has  strong connections to the United Nations privatization projects.

Stew Burkhammer, a current Bechtel executive, is presently a member of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s  (OSHA) Advisory Committee on Construction Safety and Health.

Marie-Françoise of Bechtel (France), Conseiller d’Etat, From 1979 to 1980, she was Consultant of the United Nations Asian and Pacific Development Center.

bechtel-war-profits

The connections between these groups can be further exemplified by the following: United Resolution 1483, from the UN Security Council in 2003, approved the occupation of Iraq by American and British forces, thus making Iraq into a de facto colony. As such, this opened the door for a corporate feeding frenzy by companies such as Bechtel as they lined up to “repair” Iraq following Gulf War II. Subsequently, Bechtel received a $1.03 billion contract to oversee major reconstruction of Iraq‘s water and sewage. In spite of Bechtel’s promises, Iraqi families continue to lack access to clean water. The company made providing Southern Iraq’s potable water one of its top priorities in which Bechtel promised delivery within 60 days following the commencement of the project. Within a year, Iraqi people still were suffering through epidemics of water-borne illnesses (e.g., cholera, kidney stones and diarrhea). Bechtel failed to live up to its word, but they did make a lot of money. And some people think that the United Nations is merely a benign and benevolent organization which is essentially neutral on all areas of politics and finance. Today, the stock holders of Bechtel have the United Nations to thank, in large part, for their good fortune

Conclusion

Let’s be very clear. Debt is being used to control water by taking advantage of various levels of governments which are defaulting on financial obligations. This practice is in the process of being implemented in the United States. The United Nations, the World Bank and globalist corporations (e.g. Bechtel) are waiting in the wings to subjugate our people as our crushing debt will undoubtedly open this door.

Conquering America Through the Control of Water

America can indeed be garrisoned through the control of water. And the control of water will, in large part, be facilitated through the controlling of the America’s debt.

If this were the sole extent of our water challenges, our collective existence would be imperiled, but it gets worse. We now know that when the globalists invade a country, they do so on multiple fronts. When members of a community cannot afford or obtain drinking water, where will people have to go to obtain these resources…?

Bill Gates: “We Need A World Government”

Bill Gates - Francois Hollande meeting

Microsoft founder Bill Gates is the richest man in the world – and has a unique understanding of how global issues such as poverty , climate change or famines must be fought in the future.

Im Interview mit der “Süddeutschen Zeitung” kritisierte Gates, dass besonders im Hinblick auf den Klimawandel “eine Art globale Regierung” fehle. In an interview with the “Süddeutsche Zeitung” Gates criticized that especially with regard to climate change, “a kind of global government” lacks. Mit anderen Worten: Gates will eine Weltregierung.

How The UN Is Confiscating American Homes And Controlling All Food And Energy

United-Nations

In times of crises, the government has proven, time and time again, that it cannot be counted on to adequately protect the American people. As the American people have not prepared for the coming dark days, they will be vulnerable to starvation, dehydration, cholera, pandemics and attacks from resource-deficient  looters. Will the government be there to save them? History has already answered this question in the negative. Events such as Hurricane Katrina, Hurricane Sandy, L.A. riots and the Ferguson riots have repeatedly demonstrated that when trouble comes, the American people will be on their own.

When disaster strikes, it will take less than 24 hours until grocery stores are empty, the utilities are down and neighbors begin to prey upon neighbors.

Obama Criminalizes Independence

Certainly, no government can be all things to all people. Subsequently, the government should be in the business of encouraging its citizens to be independent. However, the Obama administration has taken the opposite approach. Instead of the government empowering the people to be self-sufficient, this administration is punishing independence and self sufficiency.

DHS actually published a “Right Wing Extremism Manual which demonizes and targets normal citizens with labels such as “preppers” and have further defined the act of becoming self-sufficient as being the actions of a domestic terrorist. It is ironic that DHS is the one who has ordered millions of FEMA caskets, 2700 armored personnel carriers and 2.2 billion rounds of ammunition. Yet, it is only the wholly independent people, only desiring to be left alone by their government, are labeled as domestic terrorists.

America Is Witnessing the Manifestation of Agenda 21

Any aware person knows that Agenda 21 is predicated on eliminating private property ownership and keeping all people within the “system”. Drinking raw milk, engaging in off the grid living and heating your home with a wood stove is forbidden. All of these prohibitions and more are presently encircling America as the Agenda 21 noose is tightening around collective necks.

Many unaware Americans still mistakenly believe that they have dominion over their lives and personal choices. These same people mistakenly believe that the government does not care if you want to live independently of their corporate cronies  who own the utilities. They want you in their system so they can continue to exploit your resources for their benefit. Take the case of Robin Speronis who tried opting for renewable non-grid tied power and utilize environmentally friendly composting toilets and his own self-sufficient water supply. If one commits these acts in Florida, that person could go to jail.

IpmcSperonis lived off the grid, independent of Cape Coral’s (Florida) water and electric utilities. Not to be denied the revenue to them owed the subjects of Florida, the utilities took Speronis to court and the judge ruled this off-the-grid living was illegal last week. The judge labeled the Speronis home as being “unsanitary” and cited the International Property Maintenance Code in the ruling. Wikipedia further  exposes the fact that the International Property Maintenance Code derives its authority from Agenda 21 and ICLEI and that this “regulation” bootstraps its authority into the following domains.

  • International Building Code
  • International Residential Code
  • International Fire Code
  • International Plumbing Code
  • International Mechanical Code
  • International Wildland Urban Interface Code
  • International Existing Building Code
  • International Property Maintenance Code
  • International Private Sewage Disposal Code
  • International Zoning Code
  • International Green Construction Code…

Subsequently, we have an American judge, in Florida, citing UN mandates to forcibly evict an American citizen of their property and nullify their Fifth Amendment Rights. Speronis also faces jail time for noncompliance with international law.

If you read nothing else in this article, I strongly suggest you heed this warning. In two years, local and state governments will have the ability to begin to seize individual property for the failure to meet code, usually in the area of energy efficiency and international code compliance. In the near future if one cannot meet the burden of upgrading their older homes into meeting the standards related energy compliance, by United Nations standards, one could have their home confiscated without any compensation.

More Agenda 21 Insanity

The latest round of Agenda 21 insanity is coming from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). The EPA has recently imposed new heating rules as of last year and the date of enforcement has long last arrived.

The insane application of Agenda 21 policies knows no bounds when it comes to the EPA. Also under the auspices of the International Property Maintenance Code, the EPA has introduced new standards for wood stoves which dramatically reduces the amount of fine particle emissions for any wood stove sold in 2015. The emissions must be reduced by 33% with more reductions scheduled for 2019.

At issue is the unsubstantiated claim that the EPA is making that if the use of wood stoves are reduced, the health of the residents will increase. Yet, the EPA does not offer any peer-reviewed research, which has been replicated, as proof of this bogus claim. Are we just supposed to take their word for it? We might as well face the fact that the EPA is controlled by ICLEI and their United Nations puppet masters.

Who Are the Real Terrorists?

We are under attack from the skies and through the poisoning of our air, via massive chemical spraying complete with Alzheimer’s and dementia causing aluminum sulfate and cancer causing bariumFukushima radiationCorexit spraying and the resulting toxic rain from the Gulf oil spill is running rampant over our country and not one ounce of mainstream media coverage is afforded to these dangers. Prevention and remediation from these dangers, caused by governmental indifference or complicity, are not put into place by our present government.

Our water is being systematically removed from the country by Nestle, and our water tables are being systematically compromised by environmental toxins and of course many Americans are consuming water permeated with IQ-lowering rocket fuel (i.e. fluoride).

Americans are now in the midst of being subjected to the death panels of Obama care in which citizens over the age of 70 are officially referred to as “units” and are targeted for comfort care but not given life saving measures. Under these conditions is it really in our best interest to remain “in the system”?

This is an undeniable, unmitigated and naked version of Eugenics cast in the same flavor as that practiced by Margaret Sanger, Joseph Stalin and Adolph Hitler and when Americans try to extricate themselves from these assaults upon their liberties and their health, they are increasingly marginalized, and prosecuted.

Conclusion

Who’s the real terrorist here? Why is the Obama administration embracing international mandates which criminalizes independent behavior and choices in violation of our Fifth Amendment rights?

If you have the courage to really answer these questions, I would suggest you dig into world history and read about the Holodomor and discover the real motivation behind forced compliance which results in total dependence on the government for life-sustaining services should become readily apparent.

$10 Billion UN-Linked Climate Change Fund Wants Immunity From Prosecution

Green Climate Fund Bonn Building

Green Climate Fund Bonn Building

The Green Climate Fund, (GCF) a United Nations-affiliated piggy-bank  intended to finance climate change projects around the world, is determined to win sweeping U.N.-style immunities from prosecutions for its global operations–even though  the U.S., its biggest contributor, opposes the idea, and the U.N. itself says its own diplomatic immunities can’t cover the outfit.

The immunities issue could well spark even deeper opposition from Republican lawmakers in next year’s Congress to the Obama Administration’s aggressive climate change policies–which include a recent $3 billion pledge to the Fund.

“We would definitely be opposed to any extension of immunity to the Fund,” said a senior aide to Republican Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma, who will chair the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works starting in January.

“What do they need protection from?” he asked. “In essence, they are doing business development projects. If you look at the way millions of people do transactions across national borders, they do it without immunity and very successfully.”

Apparently undeterred, fund officials told Fox News that they are now trying to hammer out “bilateral agreement templates” that could be laboriously negotiated with each country where it operates—a total that could eventually reach the great majority of  the U.N.’s 193 members.

The Fund has already negotiated one agreement of immunity—with its new host country, South Korea, as a condition of moving its headquarters there last year.

What Is Big Oil Doing At The Lima Climate Talks?

cop20 peru

The COP20, sponsored by the United Nations and transnational corporations, has the biggest carbon footprint ever.

LIMA – You would think that the Lima Climate Talks would be discussions among scientists and policy makers, that they would be candid conversations about how to improve energy usage and significantly reduce environmental pollution.

Well, that will have to be left for another climate talk, or perhaps another era in human history.

Even though Big Oil is one of the most significant polluters worldwide – ask Exxon and BP – representatives from the most powerful energy companies are and have been at every environmental gathering since Rio 1992.

You are probably asking yourself what in the world are representatives from the most dangerous industry in the world, one that rivals geo-engineering and GMO polluters, at the Climate Talks in Peru.

Is it even possible to negotiate ways to have a cleaner planet when the polluters, those who only seek profit for their shareholders and themselves are at the negotiating table?

For starters, these guys are not there to negotiate, but to take care of their interests.

Oil is, and will be the main source of energy for industries the globe over for a while, but these guys should not be able to participate in discussing how to have a cleaner planet.

They are not interested in a cleaner planet. If they were, they would have not caused so much damage to the environment as they have done. If they were really interested in a cleaner planet, they would be investing as much money as they pile up to oppose the emergence of new technologies and real environmental campaigns – not fake global warming alarmism.

Now, it is important to understand why they are there.

The reason is, they finance the fake environmental movement. That’s right. Those people asking for a significant cut in CO2 emissions and who blame humans for global warming are in bed with BP, Shell, Exxon and Chevron, among others. Environmentalism is a big business, and it is funded and directed by the heads of industry who control the most important monopolies.

“Official lore from the environmental movement’s publications asserts that the movement emerged from the grass roots. The truth, however, is that funding and policy lines comes from the most prestigious institutions of the Eastern Liberal Establishment, centered around the New York Council on Foreign Relations, and including the Trilateral commission, the Aspen Institute, and a host of private family foundations.” report Rogelio A. Maduro and Ralf Schauerhammer in chapter 10 of their book The Holes in the Ozone Scare: The Scientific Evidence That the Sky Isn’t Falling.

Surprised? Don’t be! That is the nature of corporate monopoly and bureaucracy.

But there is more. According to the authors, the current environmentalist movement, to which millions of people subscribe simply because they do not know what else to do, has very clear intentions for the present and the future of the western world. Unfortunately, those intentions are not the best for humanity. “This network of foundations created environmentalism, moving it from a radical fringe movement into a mass movement to support the institutionalization of antiscience, no-growth policies at all levels of government and public life. As prescribed in the Council on Foreign Relations 1980s Project book series, environmentalism has been used against America’s economy, against such targets as high-technology agriculture and the nuclear power industry. This movement is fundamentally a green pagan religion in its outlook.”

As people at the Climate Talks in Lima and previous events sponsored by the United Nations have seen, the motto used by the corporate-led environmentalist movement – “saving the Earth” – while disguising itself as “non- for profits” that seek to represent the “public interest”, is all a sham, indeed.

Each and every environmental coalition is made up of thousands of little environmental groups, which are directly or indirectly financed by monies from the UN or big corporations. How would they manage to grab billions of dollars a year in funding if it wasn’t for the large contributions from corporate interests?

Take for example the Global Tomorrow Coalition, which is composed by over 100 environmental and population-control groups. None of these groups have a budget that is lower than 3 million dollars a year.

Research compiled by Maduro and Schauerhammer, shows that as far back as the 1980s, 35 foundations were responsible for heavily investing and literally financing the operations of two powerful so-called environmental groups: The Environmental Defense Fund and the Natural Resources Defense Council.

Back in the early 1990s, available public sources showed that the total revenues of the environmentalist movement were more than $8.5 billion per year. How much do you think their budget is today?

Put simply, the environmental movement is owned by a club of billionaires and their tax-free foundations, who, through their financial contributions, control the Environmental Movement to a point where even government agencies seem unable to do their job independently.

In the summer of 2014, a report released by the Senate Environment and Public Works committee, confirmed the notion that establishment organizations such as the WWF and to a great extent Greenpeace, EarthJustice, the US National Wildlife Federation, the Nature’s Conservancy, the Sierra Club Foundation and the Union of Concerned Scientists received almost 8 billion dollars from these groups.

While skeptics of the environmentalist movement are labeled as puppets of “big oil”, those who are indeed controlled by the oil industry, the UN and tax-exempted foundations owned by a few global corporate leaders fill their pockets with tons of cash. The baseless accusations pinned on anyone who opposes the anthropogenic warming hoax is nothing more than a projection of their own greed.

While climate alarmists appeal to the large dumbed-down masses so they demand change from their political leaders, the environmentalists are getting paid off to push the fake “save the Earth” agenda movement whose only goal is to limit development, keep people poor in third world nations and to drastically reduce populations.

As Chris Williams, from Climate & Capitalism puts it, the current wave of fake environmentalists are just a group of great tacticians and great strategists. They are great with ” the science and art of using a fighting force to the best advantage”, while conducting a large-scale campaign against the very same masses of people who they have recruited to put pressure on political leaders so they pass legislation that favours large transnational corporations.

If you did not understand it before, now you know why ‘big oil’ and other dominant corporations are at the ‘negotiating table’ in Lima, Peru. Every single document signed in past climate meetings had the seal of approval of those corporations. If it did not, it would have not been accepted. They own the environmentalist movement. No decisions that favors the planet will be made until these people are kicked out the room and that is never going to happen unless environmental organizations, especially the larger ones, stop accepting funds from corporate donors and philanthropic tax-free foundations.

Your Life Depends On Literally Taking Your Money Out Of The Bank

bank

Your life depends on whether you begin to take your assets out the bank and begin to purchase life sustaining supplies. You need to start this process, today, in accordance with the principles I laid out in a previous article.

The Death of the American Economy

There was an obscure story which ran two years ago which is receiving scant attention and yet, it is the banking story of the decade. It is the number one banking story in human history. It is the story which will destroy America’s banking accounts. It is the story that spells the beginning of the end of America’s financial empire. This is the end of the America’s financial empire and NOBODY is talking about it. What is that story? First, the prerequisite background.

Our Crushing Debt

Nearly every publication estimates the derivatives debt to be in the range of one quadrillion dollars to $1.5 quadrillion dollars. Conservative estimates tell us that this derivatives debt, that has been assumed by the governments of the world, is at least 16 times the entire value of the assets of Planet Earth. This generation cannot pay off this debt. Your children, grandchildren and even great-great-great-great-great grandchildren cannot pay off this debt. If the status quo were to remain in place this debt could not be paid off in the 25th century, the 30th century, nor the 50th century. My estimates place the interest on the debt to exceed the entire value of the world’s assets and the interest is increasing far faster than the governments of the world can service the debt. Who is the debt owed to? It is owed to the first movers, the owners of the central banking system. If you want an identifiable target, let’s call the debt owners of the planet the Bank of International Settlement (BIS) along with their henchmen at the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund and their minions at the United Nations. The BIS is collapsing its own banking empire in order to usher in a New World Order which will be discussed later in the article.

The world’s economy has been dealt a fatal blow from which it cannot recover. No amount of budget, belt tightening will ever change this fact. We could literally be taxed at a 100% rate and the derivatives debt and the interest on this debt will continue to increase faster than the nations can pay the debt down.

Bank of America Case In Point

In an obscure, but well reported 2011 event, Bank of America announced it was shifting derivatives in its Merrill investment-banking unit to its depository arm, which has access to the Fed discount window and is protected by the FDIC. This was announced as a news blurb in the main stream media and was prominently reported in the Daily Bail.

This was the single biggest financial event in the history of America. It was bigger than the 1929 stock market crash and it was bigger than the beginning of the bail outs in 2008, but it did not received the banner headlines that it should have received. What does this mean? It means that the Bank of America’s European derivatives are now going to be “insured” by U.S. taxpayers and its two most important financial institutions, the Federal Reserve and the FDIC. What is even more distressing is that the Bank of America did not even seek or receive regulatory approval for this action. This action was simply acted upon on behalf of frightened counterparties. Under the Federal Bankruptcy Act of 2005, the counterparties derivatives debt receive “super priority” when it comes to the disbursement of FDIC insurance payments to failed banks. Where do the rest of us stand in terms of reimbursement for a failed bank? We are in last place. In short, when your bank fails, your money is gone.

Just how serious is the derivatives debt for the Bank of America? The Daily Bail reported that this was a “direct transfer of risk to the taxpayer done by the bank without approval by regulators and without public input . . . “  The estimated total of derivatives debt tied around the neck of Bank of America is a little under 80 trillion dollars and is growing exponentially because of the interest payments. And yet, there is another shocker, JP Morgan Chase is receiving the same undue government benefit with $79 trillion of its national derivatives debt guaranteed by the FDIC and Federal Reserve. What this means for you and me is that when Europe finally implodes and banks fail, U.S. taxpayers will hold the bag for trillions in insurance derivatives contracts, labeled as credit default swaps (CDS) which were sold by Bank of America and JP Morgan. This is when you will lose all control over your money and ultimately your life, if you are not prepared ahead of time.

As Plain As the Nose on Your Face

When the derivatives debt reaches the point where it causes our debt load to be so great that we cannot even service the interest, all financial institutions will fail. All governments will go into default. If the Federal Reserve engages in “print money out of thin air policy” to cover the insurmountable debt, as they did with the bailouts in 2008, the resulting hyperinflation will make the German Weimar Republic seem like a prosperous economy. And do you think your money is safe because of the FDIC? Let me repeat, the FDIC, by law, must first pay the derivatives counterparties. Since the derivatives debt exceed the world’s total wealth by a fact of at least 16, do you now understand how and why you are not getting your money back when EVERY bank fails in the near future? Just the debt insurance that Bank of America and JP Morgan Chase have obtained from the American people totals nearly 160 trillion dollars. Before you accuse me of being paranoid, first explain how that debt can be paid? IT cannot be paid back, ever!  However, the banksters are grasping for breath as they die on the vine. However, they will not go down without a fight. They are delaying the inevitable crash which will take them down with us. So, they are trying to keep their heads above water by stealing your bank accounts, your pensions and 401K’s. When your money is gone and your life is destroyed, the one solace we can take is that Wall Street will follow us right into the gates of hell as they will not survive either, and this is all by design. The purveyors of the central banking system are as evil as they come. They have set into motion the derivatives scheme so as to destroy all civilization so they can remake this planet in their own twisted image of their conceptualization of a Brave New World (order).

Out of Chaos Comes the New World Order

The Bank of International Settlement and its henchmen (i.e. World Bank, IMF) and the United Nations want to collapse the existing order on this planet. Their assault upon humanity has begun. They are beginning the demise with collapsing the world’s financial empire. When economies crumble, national governments will fail and then the people will soon come to understand the term, the New World Order. We are not talking about the creation of just an evil world government. We are talking about the creation of a planetary structure in which most will not survive (see the Georgia Guidestones) and those that do will live in a hellish and biologically transformed slave planet. Without going into great detail here, I would refer you back to the first 30 minutes of the movie, Man of Steel, where the ideals of Krypton will soon be visited upon the Earth in which the inhabitants of this planet will be bred for specific purposes. This new empire will be Satan’s empire and it will be based on their perverted notion of transhumanism.

Under the new transhumanism, you will be bred for servitude and your skill sets will be biologically programmed. In 1932, when Brave New World appeared, it was still science fiction. As my friends Patrick Wood and Barbara Peterson can attest to, that day is here. As I write these words we are entering into a Brave New World. This will be the topic of a future article.

In the meantime, get your money out of the bank while you will can and purchase essentials for your survival, and begin taking your money out today. Buy the essential supplies with your existing bank account. If you delay, your ability to feed, water and protect yourself and your family will disappear as the banksters make off with all of it.

You cannot stop what is coming, you can only prepare to try and survive for as long as you can.

United Nations Small Arms Treaty Will Take Effect On Christmas Eve

gun control 2

By: Dan Cannon | Guns Save Lives  –

In nations around the world, the United Nations Small Arms Treaty will take effect on Christmas Eve of this year.

Of course, the United States is not one of those countries as the Senate hasn’t even voted on the treaty yet, let alone actually ratified it by the 2/3 majority vote required. The strong Republican majority which will convene in 2015 makes it even less likely that this treaty would ever pass the US Senate.

However, some gun rights advocates are worried that the Obama administration, who has made it clear that the president plans to act executively on several other issues, may use the treaty as an excuse to attempt to impose further gun regulations via executive order. This could especially hold true in regards to import/export restrictions, something the president has already acted on in recent years. According to TheBlaze:

“We are worried about an end-run around Congress,” Mortensen told TheBlaze. “Barack Obama or a future anti-gun president could use ATT and international norms compliance to rationalize enacting gun control policies through executive actions, especially in the import and export realms.”

“Even now, with an existing appropriations rider prohibiting action to implement the treaty unless it is approved by Congress, administration officials are publicly professing support for international efforts to bring the treaty into effect. That’s outrageous,” she added.

As I’ve previously reported, the treaty, as it is currently written, would not give the UN the power to regulate the trade of arms inside of a nation’s borders. However, it does deal strongly with the import/export of firearms and could affect the already strained availability of foreign made arms/ammo in the US.

Is The UN Using Vaccines To Secretly Sterilize Women All Over The Globe?

Vaccines-Public-Domain

In some areas of the world, purposely cutting off someone’s family line is considered to be one of the most wicked things that you can possibly do.  But that appears to be precisely what the United Nations is doing.  Two UN organizations, the WHO and UNICEF, have just been caught red-handed administering “tetanus vaccines” laced with sterilizing agents to girls and women in Kenya.  And as you will see below, this is not the first time that this has happened.  Apparently there is a well-coordinated international program to use vaccines to secretly sterilize women in poor countries all over the planet.  The United States needs to immediately demand a full investigation of the UN vaccine program, but I wouldn’t count on that ever happening under the Obama administration.

There have always been anecdotal stories of women all over the globe being unable to have children after receiving UN vaccines.  But now we have scientific proof.  Lab tests that were recently conducted found an antigen that causes miscarriages in the vaccines that were being given to girls and women in Kenya.  A story that was posted on Life Site News about this caused shockwaves all over the Internet.  The following is an excerpt from that report…

Kenya’s Catholic bishops are charging two United Nations organizations with sterilizing millions of girls and women under cover of an anti-tetanus inoculation program sponsored by the Kenyan government.

According to a statement released Tuesday by the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, the organization has found an antigen that causes miscarriages in a vaccine being administered to 2.3 million girls and women by the World Health Organization and UNICEF. Priests throughout Kenya reportedly are advising their congregations to refuse the vaccine.

“We sent six samples from around Kenya to laboratories in South Africa. They tested positive for the HCG antigen,” Dr. Muhame Ngare of the Mercy Medical Centre in Nairobi told LifeSiteNews. “They were all laced with HCG.”

So exactly what is HCG?

The following is how Natural News described what it does…

HCG is a chemical developed by the World Health Organization for sterilization purposes. When injected into the body of a young woman, it causes a pregnancy to be destroyed by the body’s own antibody response to the HCG, resulting in a spontaneous abortion. Its effectiveness lasts for years, causing abortions in women up to three years after the injections.

This is an absolutely horrifying scandal, but the mainstream media is totally ignoring it.

Perhaps that is because they agree with what the United Nations is trying to do.

And should we actually be surprised at what the UN is doing?  After all, the UN has publicly declared in writing that it intends to reduce population growth in Kenya

The United Nations and its oftentimes barbaric population-control apparatus are under fire again after releasing a deeply controversial report claiming that the African population of Kenya is too large and growing too quickly. To deal with the supposed “challenge,” as the UN and its “partners” in the national government put it, international bureaucrats are demanding stepped up efforts to brainwash Kenyan women into wanting fewer children. Also on the agenda: more taxpayer-funded “family-planning” and “reproductive-health” schemes to reduce the number of Africans to levels considered “desirable” by the UN.

Critics promptly lambasted the plot as undisguised eugenics, with some experts calling it a true example of the “war on women.” Among other concerns, analysts outraged by the report noted that the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) and the establishment’s fiendish efforts to slash human populations — especially those considered “undesirable” by self-appointed guardians of the gene pool — have a long and sordid history going back decades. Today, the agenda marches on, as illustrated in the latest UN report calling for drastically reduced numbers of Kenyans.

When very evil people tell you that they intend to do something, you should take them very seriously.

And without a doubt, the UN is evil.  To use vaccines to secretly sterilize women against their will is almost too wicked to describe with words.

But the UN will keep doing this until we demand that they stop.  Back in the 1990s, similar sterilization campaigns using tetanus vaccines were being conducted in Nicaragua, Mexico and the Philippines.  The following comes from thinktwice.com

Here are the known facts concerning the tetanus vaccination campaigns in Mexico and the Philippines:

* Only women are vaccinated, and only the women between the ages of 15 and 45. (In Nicaragua the age range was 12-49.) But aren’t men at least as likely as young women to come into contact with tetanus? And what of the children? Why are they excluded?

* Human chorionic gonadotrophin (hCG) hormone has been found in the vaccines. It does not belong there — in the parlance of the O.J. Simpson murder trial, the vaccine has been “contaminated.”

* The vaccination protocols call for multiple injections — three within three months and a total of five altogether. But, since tetanus vaccinations provide protection for ten years or more, why are multiple inoculations called for?(3)

* WHO has been actively involved for more than 20 years in the development of an anti-fertility vaccine utilizing hCG tied to tetanus toxoid as a carrier — the exact same coupling as has been found in the Mexican-Philippine-Nicaragua vaccines.(4)

And these are just the incidents that we know about.

I think that it would be safe to say that wherever the UN is vaccinating people for tetanus all over the world there are probably sterilizing agents in those vaccines.

Meanwhile, the UN continues to pour money into other global sterilization methods.

For example, the UN has dedicated massive amounts of resources to supporting the “one-child policy” in China.

And in India, UN money is often used to provide financial incentives to women to volunteer for sterilization.

At this point, approximately 37 percent of all married women in the nation of India have been sterilized.  That is an absolutely astounding number.  In fact, it is so astounding that I could hardly believe it when I first saw it.

But it is actually true.

And these procedures are often not conducted safely.  In fact, one recent mass sterilization campaign resulted in the deaths of ten women

Ten women have died in India and dozens more are in hospital, many in a critical condition after a state-run mass sterilisation, a local official said Tuesday.

Many of the more than 80 women who underwent sterilisation at the free government-run camp in the central state of Chhattisgarh on Saturday fell ill shortly afterwards, the official told AFP.

Of course the United States is not exactly innocent in all of this.  These UN organizations are absolutely showered with money by the Obama administration, and the U.S. government even has an “Office of Population Affairs” that is used to promote population control all across the planet.

Those involved in these efforts actually believe that they are doing the right thing.  They are convinced that “climate change” is the number one problem that humanity is facing today and that the number one way to fight “climate change” is to reduce the number of people.

So they believe that they are actually “saving the world” by pushing a population control agenda.

For much, much more on all of this, please see the following articles…

Now that the wicked actions of the UN in Kenya have been exposed, UN officials are going to closely watch how people respond.

If there is little outrage, they will just keep on secretly sterilizing women.

That is why it is absolutely imperative that we scream bloody murder about all of this.  Great evil is being committed right in front of our eyes, and those with courage need to stand up and say that enough is enough.

World Bank And UN Carbon Offset Scheme ‘Complicit’ In Genocidal Land Grabs – NGOs

Plight of Kenya’s indigenous Sengwer shows carbon offsets are empowering corporate recolonisation of the South.

Editor’s Note: On Monday The Independent published an article titled “Britain has only 100 harvests left in its farm soil as scientists warn of growing ‘agricultural crisis’“. We are all too aware of why Britain’s (and other nations’) soils are becoming so depleted (if not, please see here and here, for example), and with the Western world standing on the precipice in regards to its food supply, it is insane for us to repeat the same mistakes on healthy soils elsewhere. And yet, that is exactly what we’re doing — financed by ‘investments’ and ‘offset mechanisms’ that empower the rich to extract and destroy ever more efficiently, behind the veil of distance. The color-by-numbers kind of agriculture that has depleted soils and health in the North, is being aggressively, forcefully and rapidly applied to precious living soils in Africa, and elsewhere — and in too many cases also turning the poor residents of those lands into serfs at the same time. The sensible — and humane — thing to do, is to make a rapid transition to the kind of agriculture we continually write about…. Grow your own food people, and support your local growers, and you will not be contributing to this inhumane, biologically impossible madness.

Between 2000 and 2010, a total of 500 million acres of land in Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean was acquired or negotiated under deals brokered on behalf of foreign governments or transnational corporations.

Many such deals are geared toward growing crops or biofuels for export to richer, developed countries – with the consequence that small-holder farmers are displaced from their land and lose their livelihood while local communities go hungry.

The concentration of ownership of the world’s farmland in the hands of powerful investors and corporations is rapidly accelerating, driven by resource scarcity and, thus, rising prices. According to a new report by the US land rights organisation Grain:

The powerful demands of food and energy industries are shifting farmland and water away from direct local food production to the production of commodities for industrial processing.

Less known factors, however, include ‘conservation’ and ‘carbon offsetting.’

In west Kenya, as the UK NGO Forest Peoples Programme (FPP) reported, over a thousand homes had been torched by the government’s Kenya Forest Service (KFS) to forcibly evict the 15,000 strong Sengwer indigenous people from their ancestral homes in the Embobut forest and the Cherangany Hills.

Since 2007, successive Kenyan governments have threatened Sengwer communities in the Embobut forest with eviction. A deadline for residents to leave the forest expired in early January, prompting the most recent spate of violence. The pretext for the eviction is that the indigenous Sengwer – labelled wrongly as ‘squatters‘ – are responsible for the accelerating degradation of the forest.

Elsewhere in Kenya’s Mount Elgon forest, however, the KFS’ track record reveals a more complicated story. In 2010, the indigenous Ogiek were issued a deadline to relocate in the name of forest conservation and reforestation. In February this year, Survival International reported that, like the Sengwer, the Ogiek continued to be violently evicted from their homes in violation of court orders, with reports of government officials and their supporters seizing their land.

While deforestation is undoubtedly linked to the activities of poor communities, the Kenyan government’s approach illustrates favouritism toward parochial vested interests. In addition to the indigenous communities, the forests are also inhabited by many thousands of tea-planters, loggers, and squatters.

According to an internal report by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in 2000, reviewing the Kenyan government’s internationally-funded conservation programme, “the forests of Mt Elgon are not being sustainably managed.” The report highlighted “unsustainable harvesting of both indigenous and plantation forest on Mt Elgon,” routine flouting of “regulations and procedures for sound management”, “the rate of forest plantation harvesting” far exceeding “the rate of replanting”, lack of supervision of controls on “forest harvesting operations authorised by the Forest Department,” and consequently “extensive loss of forest resources.”

The IUCN review also alluded to the role of the Kenyan government’s relationship with RaiPly Ltd, a Kenyan company involved in manufacture of wood products:

It is not known why or how RaiPly presumably received a license to harvest indigenous species, thus circumventing the ban on harvesting in indigenous forests.

Official Kenyan parliamentary records from May 1999 show that Kenyan political representatives have been concerned about these issues for some time. One question put to Kenya’s then assistant minister for natural resources, Peter Lengees, by a Kenyan MP pointed out that “trees are being cut in Mt. Elgon forest,” threatening the region’s rivers “from both sides.” Local government officials, the MP accused, “have shared up the area between these two rivers” which are now “drying up.”

Lengees denied any knowledge of this, prompting a further question from late politician George Kapten, who said that “lorries from Raiply” had been ferrying high-value teak timber from Mount Elgon forest. “And I wish to add that the highest authority in this country has shares in RaiPly”, he added. Lengees repeated his denial but admitted that RaiPly was “licensed to cut trees from some forests in Kenya.”

Currently, RaiPly is among several major companies that are exempt from a partial government ban on logging. Effectively, the government is permitting powerful logging companies to accelerate deforestation to buoy the Kenyan economy while systematically persecuting indigenous communities whose environmental impact is comparatively negligible.

The devastating plight of Kenya’s indigenous peoples is symptomatic of the flawed approach to conservation on the part of international agencies.

The World Bank’s Natural Resource Management Programme (NRMP) with the Kenyan government, launched in 2007, has involved funding for projects in the Cherangany Hills under the UN’s Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD) programme, including “financing REDD+ readiness activities” some of which began in May 2013.

Under the REDD scheme companies in the developed world purchase carbon credits to invest in reducing emissions from forested lands. Those credits turn up on the companies’ balance sheets as carbon reductions. In practice, however, REDD schemes largely allow those companies to accelerate pollution while purchasing land and resources in the developing world at bargain prices.

A FPP background brief on the role of the World Bank claims that the implementation of NRMP – overseen by the very same KFS forces conducting a scorched earth campaign in Cherangany – violates the Bank’s own operational safeguard policies. A formal Sengwer complaint to the Bank lodged in January last year alleged that human rights abuses by Kenyan forces were “a direct result” of the World Bank-funded programme:

“One example of the harm caused by the project was that it changed the border of the Cherangany forest reserves,” according to the FPP brief, “such that Sengwer families, without any consultation or notice, found themselves on the inside of the forest reserve and therefore automatically subject to eviction by the KFS, evictions effectively funded by the World Bank. These evictions were customarily executed by burning homes and food stores in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2013.”

In a statement in February, the World Bank disavowed any link between its programme and the forced evictions, but also offered to the Kenyan government:

… to share best practices in resettlement in line with its safeguard policies. These seek to improve or restore the living standards of people affected by involuntary resettlement.

A letter to the Bank in March by No REDD in Africa network (Nran) — a group of African civil society organisations — signed by over 60 international NGOs accused the Bank with the above words of “both admitting its complicity in the forced relocation of the Sengwer People as well as offering to collude with the Kenyan government to cover-up cultural genocide.”

As “carbon credit financier and broker”, the World Bank is “aiding and abetting the forced relocation of an entire Indigenous People through its Natural Resource Management Plan (NRMP) which includes REDD (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation), in the Cherangany Hills”, said the letter.

The Sengwer’s complaint is currently under investigation by the World Bank Inspection Panel. Although the report is now complete, a Bank spokesperson, Phil Hay, said that it would not be reviewed by the Board until August or September.

“The World Bank is not associated with the evictions and has not supported or financed resettlement in forest areas under the now closed Natural Resource Management Project (NMRP)”, said Hay. “Nonetheless we are not bystanders either. We have been concerned about how the evictions have been handled and have been in frequent touch with the Kenyan government.”

Notably, the Bank’s professed concern here is with “how the evictions have been handled”, not with evictions being carried out in the first place.

no-redd-10-300x200A damning new report from the Rights and Resources Initiative (RRI) based in Washington DC thus warns that the UN and World Bank approach to REDD is paving the way for large-scale “carbon grabs” by foreign governments and investors, putting at risk the land rights, livelihoods and lives of indigenous communities.

The report surveyed 23 low and middle income countries in Latin America, Asia, and Africa, covering 66 percent of the developing world’s forests, concluding that REDD had not established laws or mechanisms by which indigenous peoples and local communities could profit from the carbon in the forests they inhabited.

“Their rights to their forests may be few and far between, but their rights to the carbon in the forests are non-existent”, said Arvind Khare, RRI executive director.

At the United Nations climate negotiations in Warsaw in November 2013, delegates reached an agreement that would allow REDD to move forward which, however, excluded questions around who should control and benefit from the new carbon value found in standing forests.

Instead, the World Bank Carbon Fund’s approach to defining carbon rights has been widely criticised by civil society groups for creating conflict between new property rights to carbon, and existing statutory and customarily held rights of local communities. The lack of clear safeguards and measures opens up an unprecedented opportunity for corporate and government land grabbing.

Tony La Viña, Dean of the Ateneo School of Government and chair of the intergovernmental REDD negotiations at the climate conferences in Copenhagen and Durban, said: “The carbon markets, when up and running, need to support the forest stewardship of the people who live there, and not provide national governments with yet another tool to dispossess their citizens from the natural resources they have cared for and depended on for generations.”

According to the No REDD in Africa network, it is precisely because indigenous people and their rights are not factored into REDD principles that their implementation could lead to outright genocide.

Chris Lang, a British forestry expert who runs the REDD Monitor blog, agrees that under REDD schemes involving forested or agricultural land, “the rights to the use of that land could be taken away from indigenous peoples who depend on their forests for their livelihoods. Destroying livelihoods on this scale could conform to the parts (a), (b), and (c) of the [UN Convention] definition of genocide.”
