Rhode Island woman finds wild turkey in bathroom


Imagine coming home to find a turkey sitting on your bathroom counter after crashing through a window. It happened to Nancy Page of Warwick.

"The door was open and I rounded the corner and there was a turkey— sitting on my vanity," she explained.

The wild bird came crashing through the window last week and created quite a mess. The turkey had accidentally turned on the faucet which ran for hours flooding the room. That's in addition to the glass and feathers that went everywhere.

Page says she wasn't really sure what to do, so she closed the door and called 911.

"My emergency was water gushing through the ceiling... and a turkey in my bathroom," said Page. "She [the dispatcher] said what? And I said it again and said this really is true."

Police, fire, and D.E.M came to the rescue. Page captured the birds' removal from the Algonquin Drive home on her cell phone. With a little prodding the turkey stands up and takes off completely unharmed.

"Everybody has gotten a really good laugh out of this because it is so comical. No one was hurt so we're real thankful for that," said Page.

Mentally-ill man dies after Ohio deputy uses takedown hold in jail


David Dehmann, 33, died last week at the Grant Medical Center in Columbus, Ohio. Dehmann, who suffers from several conditions (Asperger's Syndrome, Tourette's Syndrome and autism), was seriously injured by a deputy at the Knox County Jail in Mount Vernon, Ohio, on April 21.

Dehmann was taken into custody for alleged public intoxication, transported to a hospital, then released, but arrested a second time for alleged persistent disorderly conduct (video below).

The state's Bureau of Criminal Investigation's Special Investigation Unit is now investigating the incident, noted Mount Vernon News.

According to the Knox County Sheriff's Office:

While Dehmann was in the jail's intake area he became aggressive with the jail staff making an aggressive move towards Deputy [Chase] Wright. Mr. Dehmann did attempt to hit Dep. Wright in the face, causing Dep. Wright to place Mr. Dehmann into a takedown hold, taking him to the ground to get control of him. Once control was gained, it was found that Mr. Dehmann had hit his head on the floor during the incident. Mr. Dehmann was transported to KCH ER by Mount Vernon medics for a medical evaluation.

Dehmann died just after midnight last Wednesday, notes KnoxPages.com.

Dehmann's father, also named David, told 10TV, "My son, my only son again, you know, that's hard. I don't know what happened to him other than he got his head hit going down in the takedown whatever. I'm not happy over it a bit, man. It's rocked my world." Dehmann's step-mother, Melissa, added, "He might have had his issues in the past and everything, but he didn't deserve to die because of this."

Dehmann's family says that the young man and his conditions were known by local law enforcement. Dehmann's dad later stated, "I'd like to know, I want to know what happened when my boy's head hit that concrete. You know, I want to know what happened."

The answer could be held on a surveillance video of the incident, but Jill Del Greco, of the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation, says the video cannot be released publicly because it is part of an investigation.

Convicted Utah pedophile steals school bus and uses it's list of names and addresses to try and kidnap children

Convicted child sex-offender, Patrick James Fredriksen

A known child sex offender has been arrested on suspicion of stealing a school bus and driving it around to pick up youngsters. Patrick James Fredricksen, 30 - who has previous convictions for unlawful sexual activity with a minor and impersonating a firefighter - was stopped on his way to one child's home in eastern Utah, police say. He had already used the bus's on-board list of children's names and addresses to try and abduct a young girl, they added.

Fredricksen has now been booked into Emery County Jail for investigation of theft of a vehicle and attempted child kidnapping. He is also expected to face a charge of damaging a prison after breaking a sprinkler pipe inside his cell and flooding the booking area, said sheriff spokeswoman Janalee Luke. Fredricksen's crime spree is alleged to have started while he was laying turf for a landscaping firm at a baseball complex in Huntington on Monday.

An employee at the site phoned the local sheriff's office to report a worker 'was acting strange' and had left on foot with a set of master keys to the complex. Shortly afterwards, a nearby funeral-parlor worker reported that his car had been stolen from the company car park. He told police he had noticed a 'suspicious' person around the building' but was talking to a bereaved family at the time so 'wasn't too concerned', according to the sheriff's office. They claim Fredricksen was the thief and that he drove the car to an empty school bus, which had its keys inside.

"After stealing the bus and using a list he found in the bus containing names and directions [to children's houses], Fredricksen attempted to pick one child up at her home and was asking directions to a second child's home," said the sheriff's office. He had been foiled in his first attempt to a child after parking the bus on the family's driveway, according to KSL News. The girl's father got to the vehicle first and would not let her board after quizzing the driver. Fredricksen was eventually stopped by a sheriff's lieutenant following a report of a suspicious person driving a school bus in the Cleveland area of Emery County. The lieutenant said he halted the slow-moving vehicle by pulling in front of it.

Fredricksen, who has also used the names Pat Shelton and Patrick Fredrickson, is on Utah's Sex Offender Registry after pleading guilty in 2004 to unlawful sexual activity with a minor. Court records show he was separately charged in 2005 with sexual exploitation of a minor and dealing in material harmful to a minor but the case was dismissed as part of an apparent plea bargain that resolved another case against him.

The following year, Fredricksen was living in Salt Lake County when he pleaded guilty to impersonating a fireman. He had previously worked as a volunteer firefighter for the Huntington Fire Department but was dismissed in 2003 for stealing clothing and equipment. After his dismissal, he pinned on a stolen badge and lent a hand at emergencies, the court was told. He discovered where the real firefighters were working by listening to a police scanner.

He also stole firefighting equipment and used his fake status to rent an apartment and get credit, according to newspaper reports from the time. He was sentenced to 36 months of probation and ordered to have counselling.

New telescopes see magnetic flux ropes on Sun (which can't possibly affect Earths climate).

A new telescope has peered into the Sun to see solar magnetic flux ropes for the first time. Severe flux rope twists have been described as being like "earthquakes" on the sun, and are linked to eruptions of large solar flares that change magnetic fields, and cause radiation and energetic particles to rain on Earth.

We don't know much about solar magnetic flux ropes. We know they affect space weather, but thanks to climate experts we already "know" they can't possibly, ever in a million years, affect Earth's weather. Even though we've only just been able to see them and have no long term data on them, we have Global Circulation Climate models (which don't include these solar factors), so we have 95% certainty that none of the particles, fields or radiation changes have much impact on Earth. They might fritz satellites, electronics and communications, but Earth's atmosphere has no electrical component (wink), and the models "work" (kinda, sorta, apart from "the pause", the arctic, the ocean, the antarctic, and the holocene) without any of this fuzzy solar stuff. Got that? Repeat after me. The Sun does not affect Earth's climate. (Good boys and girls. You are fit for a government grant.)

Fine details of a magnetic flux rope captured by the New Solar Telescope at Big Bear Solar Observatory for Solar Active Region 11817 on 2013 August 11. The structure is further demonstrated by the 3-D magnetic modeling based the observations of Helioseismic and Magnetic Imager on board Solar Dynamic Observatory.


Science Daily: Scientists at NJIT's Big Bear Solar Observatory (BBSO) have captured the first high-resolution images of the flaring magnetic structures known as solar flux ropes at their point of origin in the Sun's chromosphere.

Flux ropes are bundles of magnetic fields that together rotate and twist around a common axis, driven by motions in the photosphere, a high-density layer of the Sun's atmosphere below the solar corona and chromosphere.

David's solar notch delay theory, which predicts cooling, by the way, is doing very well. We'll be discussing an update and more news on his theory that TSI is a leading indicator (but not a direct cause) of temperature changes on Earth in up and coming posts. Energetic particles, solar winds, changes in radiation and magnetic fields, are all candidates for the force (or forces) that influence Earth's climate, but are delayed by half a full solar cycle (of ~22 years) from changes in the TSI.

Previous problems with Fourier transform approximations have been fixed, and a delay is indeed implied by the notch. Sorry about the big gap in publications on it, there is something scientifically big going on (separate from the ND solar theory) behind the scenes and he prefers to work with a low profile rather than in the "blood sport" distraction that publicity brings. Thanks to all the people who support our ground breaking research. Donations to this blog keep us both going. To the team who make independent science and independent science commentary possible — We're very grateful

We will be entering the fray again soon. I have a series of posts lined up. Thanks for your patience.

Left-handed people have same genetic code abnormality as those with situs inversus

© The Independent, UK
100,000 people had their genes sequenced to determine handedness.

Left-handed people may be even more unique than first thought, thanks to a study that has linked one rare condition with another.

100,000 people had their genes sequenced to determine handedness, and it seems that a condition called may be able to provide clues behind what makes people use their left hand instead of the right.

One in 20,000 people are affected by the condition which mirrors the major organs from their major positions: for instance the heart would be on the right side of the body instead of the left.

Human geneticist Silvia Paracchini and her team from the University of St Andrews found that the part of the genetic code which is abnormal in people who have is the same that affects handedness.

Paracchini said: "The reason why it fascinates us is that we don't really understand it. It's fascinating but also puzzling.

"There must be an evolutionary advantage [to being right-handed]."

While 25 per cent of all left handedness can be linked by a person's genes, the other 75 per cent is still yet to be fully explained.

Just 12 per cent of the world's population is left-handed, with twice as many male left-handers as women, but 30 per cent of people can switch hands during some tasks.

Right handed people reportedly earn 12 per cent more over their lifetimes than lefties, while Harvard economist Joshua Goodman claimed that "lefties have more emotional and behavioural problems".

However, there are plenty of famous left-handers to boast about.

Leonardo Da Vinci, Pierce Brosnan, Nicole Kidman, Marilyn Monroe, Lewis Caroll, Spike Lee, David Bowie, Kurt Cobain, Annie Lennox, Jimmi Hendrix, Ross Kemp, Julius Caesar, Neil Armstrong, Winston Churchill, Babe Ruth, Noel Gallagher and Bart Simpson were/are all left-handers.

Bad reputation of viruses not universally deserved

"The word, virus, connotes morbidity and mortality, but that bad reputation is not universally deserved," said Marilyn Roossinck, PhD, Professor of Plant Pathology and Environmental Microbiology and Biology at the Pennsylvania State University, University Park. "Viruses, like bacteria, can be important beneficial microbes in human health and in agriculture," she said. Her review of the current literature on beneficial viruses appeared ahead of print April 24 in the , which is published by the American Society for Microbiology.

In sharp contrast to the gastrointestinal distress it causes in humans, the murine (mouse infecting) norovirus plays a role in development of the mouse intestine and its immune system, and can actually replace the beneficial effects of certain gut bacteria when these have been decimated by antibiotics. Normal, healthy gut bacteria help prevent infection by bacteria that cause gastrointestinal illness, but excessive antibiotic intake can kill the normal gut flora, and make one vulnerable to gastrointestinal disease. However, norovirus infection of mice actually restored the normal function of the immune system's lymphocytes and the normal morphology of the intestine, said Roossinck.

Mammalian viruses can also provide immunity against bacterial pathogens. Gamma-herpesviruses boost mice resistance to Listeria monocytogenes, an important human gastrointestinal pathogen, and to Yersinia pestis, otherwise known as plague. "Humans are often infected with their own gamma-herpes viruses, and it is conceivable that these could provide similar benefits," said Roossinck.

Latent herpesviruses also arm natural killer cells, an important component of the immune system, which kill both mammalian tumor cells, and cells that are infected with pathogenic viruses.

The gastrointestinal tracts of mammals are plush with viruses. So far, little is known about how these viruses affect their hosts, but their sheer number and diversity suggest that they have important functions, said Roossinck. For example, GI viruses that infect bacteria—known as phage—may modulate expression of bacterial genes involved in host digestion.

Recent research shows that bacteriophage stick to the mucus membranes of many metazoans (the class "Animalia," which includes everything from worms to wombats). And mucus membranes, Roossinck points out, are the points of entry for many bacterial pathogens, suggesting that they provide the first line of defense against invading bacteria.

Viruses also provide a variety of services for plants. A few plants grow in the hot soils surrounding the geysers and the "Artists' Paintpots" of Yellowstone National Park. One such plant, which is a type of tropical panic grass, is a symbiosis that includes a fungus that colonizes the plant, and a virus that infects that fungus. All three members of this symbiosis are necessary for survival in soils simmering at more than 122 degrees Fahrenheit.

In the laboratory, Roossinck has created symbioses between the same virus-infected fungus and other plants. This has enabled every plant her group has tested to survive at these elevated soil temperatures, including tomato, she says, noting that she has pushed the soil temperature to 140 degrees without killing the plant.

Investigators have also found that certain viruses can render some plants drought tolerant, and at least one example of virally-conferred cold tolerance has been discovered— discoveries that could become useful for expanding the ranges of crops.

Plants are often infected with "persistent viruses" that are passed down from generation to generation, perhaps over thousands of years, with viruses that are transmitted to nearly 100 percent of their plant progeny, but that have never been shown to be transmitted from one plant to another. "One such virus, white clover crytpic virus, suppresses formation of nitrogen-fixing nodules when adequate nitrogen is present in the soil, saving the plant from producing a costly organ when it is not needed" said Roossinck.

Other beneficial viruses are the ancient retroviruses that long ago made a permanent home in the genome, or that left genes therein, said Roossinck. "The mammalian genes for syncitin, essential in the establishment of the placenta, are retroviral env genes that were incorporated on several different occasions," Roossinck writes. "They even function differently in ruminants compared to other mammals... these elements are considered viral fossils that can help us understand the deep evolution of viruses."

"Viruses are beyond a doubt the coolest things I have ever encountered," said Roossinck. "They do truly amazing things with very little genetic information. I was always a little disturbed at the bad rap they get, so it was very exciting for me to find good ones."

Researchers think underwater volcano off Northwest coast is erupting - right on schedule

© Bill Chadwick, Oregon State University, Copyright Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution
A “snowblower” hydrothermal vent spews hot water and white bits of bacterial mat that are blooming in the chemical-rich hot-spring water, showing that the lava flow that was erupted in 2011 at Axial Seamount is still cooling.

Newport, Oregon - Axial Seamount, an active underwater volcano located about 300 miles off the coast of Oregon and Washington, appears to be erupting - after two scientists had forecast that such an event would take place there in 2015.

Geologists Bill Chadwick of Oregon State University and Scott Nooner of the University of North Carolina Wilmington made their forecast last September during a public lecture and followed it up with blog posts and a reiteration of their forecast just last week at a scientific workshop.

They based their forecast on some of their previous research - funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), which showed how the volcano inflates and deflates like a balloon in a repeatable pattern as it responds to magma being fed into the seamount.

Since last Friday, the region has experienced thousands of tiny earthquakes - a sign that magma is moving toward the surface - and the seafloor dropped by 2.4 meters, or nearly eight feet, also a sign of magma being withdrawn from a reservoir beneath the summit. Instrumentation recording the activity is part of the NSF-funded Ocean Observatories Initiative. William Wilcock of the University of Washington first observed the earthquakes.

"It isn't clear yet whether the earthquakes and deflation at Axial are related to a full-blown eruption, or if it is only a large intrusion of magma that hasn't quite reached the surface," said Chadwick, who works out of OSU's Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport and also is affiliated with NOAA's Pacific Marine Environmental Laboratory. "There are some hints that lava did erupt, but we may not know for sure until we can get out there with a ship."

In any case, the researchers say, such an eruption is not a threat to coastal residents. The earthquakes at Axial Seamount are small and the seafloor movements gradual and thus cannot cause a tsunami.

"I have to say, I was having doubts about the forecast even the night before the activity started," Chadwick admitted. "We didn't have any real certainty that it would take place - it was more of a way to test our hypothesis that the pattern we have seen was repeatable and predictable."

Axial Seamount provides scientists with an ideal laboratory, not only because of its close proximity to the Northwest coast, but for its unique structure.

"Because Axial is on very thin ocean crust, its 'plumbing system' is simpler than at most volcanoes on land that are often complicated by other factors related to having a thicker crust," said Chadwick, who is an adjunct professor in OSU's College of Earth, Ocean, and Atmospheric Sciences. "Thus Axial can give us insights into how volcano magma systems work - and how eruptions might be predicted."

Axial Seamount last erupted in 2011 and that event was loosely forecast by Chadwick and Nooner, who had said in 2006 that the volcano would erupt before 2014. Since the 2011 eruption, additional research led to a refined forecast that the next eruption would be in 2015 based on the fact that the rate of inflation had increased by about 400 percent since the last eruption.

"We've learned that the supply rate of magma has a big influence on the time between eruptions," Nooner said. "When the magma rate was lower, it took 13 years between eruptions. But now when the magma rate is high, it took only four years."

Chadwick and Nooner are scheduled to go back to Axial in August to gather more data, but it may be possible for other researchers to visit the seamount on an expedition as early as May. They hope to confirm the eruption and, if so, measure the volume of lava involved.

Evidence that was key to the successful forecast came in the summer of 2014 via measurements taken by colleagues Dave Caress and Dave Clague of Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute and Mark Zumberge and Glenn Sasagawa of Scripps Oceanographic Institution. Those measurements showed the high rate of magma inflation was continuing.

Arrogant cop recklessly pursues fire chief to ticket him for responding to an actual emergency

[embedded content]

Port Wentworth, GA - Rincon Fire Chief Corey Rahn was on his way to an actual emergency on April 10 when he was aggressively pursued by police. Naturally, he believed they were en route to the same incident. A series of videos have been released documenting the absurd actions of the officer.

The chief was out running errands when he was alerted that a garbage truck had rear-ended a gas truck that was carrying 9,000 gallons of gas, 15 miles away from where he was. Understanding the severity of the situation, Rahn jumped in his personal vehicle and put a mini row of red emergency lights up so that he could rush to the scene and help.

As the fire chief was rushing to the scene, he became an unknowing suspect in a car chase. Despite his emergency lights, an officer began recklessly attempting to pull him over. However, as there was an extraordinarily dangerous situation, with a person trapped, Rahn assumed the officer was just on his way to the scene as well.

According to SavannahNow, the Central Dispatch was reportedly "too busy" to check if it was someone who was responding to an incident. So, the chase continued until eventually the officer used his PA system to demand that the fire chief stop. Rahn heroically ignored the orders and continued to where he was needed, only then learning that he was being chased.

In the video below, the officer's dangerous pursuit is shown on his dashcam.

Upon arriving at the crash, a second officer who had been involved in the pursuit is heard yelling, "He's going to jail." Clearly having no concern for the wreck that had a person who was in critical condition trapped inside- only his ego and revenue generation.

"I thought you were a Rincon officer behind me and we were going to the same place until I got between McCall and Chimney Road," Rahn is heard explaining.

Once the Chief explained to the officers who he was and why he was there, the officers proceeded to "let him" do his actually heroic job.

"What we do know is that a major accident involving a tanker carrying approximately 9,000 gallons of gas was rear-ended by a trash truck at approximately 45 mph," Rincon City Manager Wesley Corbitt told SavannahNow. "The trucks were fused together and an individual was trapped in the trash truck in critical condition. There was tremendous potential for escalation of damage to person and property. I have no doubt of the importance of his presence at the scene and that his leadership was vital to safely diffuse a potentially explosive and life threatening accident."

In typical police fashion however, instead of admitting that they were wrong and apologizing, the officers issued Rahn three citations. He was given tickets for reckless driving, failure to exercise due care and failure to yield to an emergency vehicle.

Here is the video of this reckless officer explaining to the less than enthused fire chief, why he is issuing a ticket.

California's low-wage workers earned less in 2014 than 1979 in inflation-adjusted dollars

Over the past 35 years, California's high-wage workers have seen steady increases in their paychecks. But low-wage workers, 4.8 million strong and about one-third of the state's workforce, earned less in inflation-adjusted dollars in 2014 than they did in 1979, according to a new analysis from UC Berkeley.

Berkeley researchers analyzing U.S. Census Bureau data at the campus's Center for Labor Research and Education found that low-wage workers, defined as those earning hourly wages of $13.63 or less, have seen steady declines in their inflation-adjusted buying power. This low-wage workforce, nearly three-quarters nonwhite and concentrated in two industries -- retail trade, and restaurants and other food services -- has also become older and more highly educated.

Teens made up 5 percent of low-wage workers in 2014, down from 16 percent in 1979, and 48 percent of low-wage earners in 2014 had attended some college, compared to 39 percent in 1979. The analysis also showed that 40 percent of the state's low-wage workers in 2014 were foreign-born.

"We found that low-wage workers in California are older and more educated than they were 30 years ago, and yet they've seen stagnant and even declining wages," said Annette Bernhardt, a visiting UC Berkeley professor of sociology and a senior researcher at the center. "The story of growing inequality is not just about the top 1 percent, it is also about the millions of low-wage workers and their families who struggle with economic insecurity every day."

In 2013, the median income of low-wage workers' families was $29,100, compared to $63,000 for all California families, a gap that has widened since 2000. From 2007 to 2011, families of low-wage workers received $14.3 billion in annual support from public-assistance programs such as the Earned Income Tax Credit, Medicaid and food stamps. Bernhardt and the study's other authors, Ian Perry and Lindsay Cattell, found that the top occupations of California's low-wage workers are retail sales workers; cooks and food preparation workers; material-moving workers; and personal care and childcare workers. About half are in Southern California.

The researchers published their analysis in chart form in , the first edition of an ongoing resource with a wide range of information about low-wage workers, their families and their jobs. The chartbook will be updated annually as new census data becomes available. It is available online.

Mainstream medical myths & alternative healing pitfalls

Staying healthy is hard enough without intentional disinformation. Basic science and logic can reveal the life-saving truths forbidden by our medical industrial complex and corporate media.

It's hard to find anyone who does not believe in the Germ Theory of Disease or that butter will clog your arteries or that we are somehow defective and at the mercy of a genetic weakness. These fictions have spanned several generations; most doctors and the misinformed public accept them without question.

While the medical system has made great strides in trauma care and intervention, it fails miserably at prevention and the treatment of chronic disease. What's ironic is that many naturalistic physicians and supplement makers work from the same faulty "need the right drug" idea and could be more effective if they recognized the electro-chemical nature of life and broadened their focus toward manipulating macro-conditions favorable for cellular health. Then again, the marketing of everything has resulted in confusion everywhere.

One must understand that modern healthcare is a profit-driven state-sponsored business that builds high walls to protect its hyper-complicated paradigm and deter all competition. Why else would every cheap effective treatment be branded as dangerous quackery? In my experience, the therapeutic ideas that really work, from mega or IV vitamin C to hydrogen peroxide to ozone to baking soda to iodine to chelation to hyperbaric oxygen to dozens of natural antibiotics to herbals, polyphenols and cannabinoids to chiropractic to still-free sunshine and earthing, have been either warned against or dismissed as worthless. This rejection is not just philosophical elitism, it is malicious disinformation, malpractice, and many times, manslaughter.

With a large chunk of the population debilitated by chronic disease or consumed as caregivers, half million cancer deaths a year, and a significant portion of the nation's wealth devoted to sick-care, the odor of fish is unmistakeable. Coincidentally, 90% of American agriculture is involved in a genetically modified chemical abomination. Toxic disease-generating fare is served on every table and industrial filth contaminates every mudpuddle and minnow. And no secret, nearly 90% of Americans are mineral deficient, lacking magnesium, potassium, iodine, sulfur, zinc and selenium. Few get a full range of vitamins, antioxidants, polyphenols, healthful fats and collagenous proteins. Metabolic dysfunction, junk "carbage," heavy metals and media-generated stress, however, are in ample supply.

Simple chemistry shows we are made of molecules which interact according to charge. Repulsions and attractions are like boys and girls, where negative charged electrons are attracted to positive charged protons. Electrons are either removed by protons or free radicals (oxidation), or shared forming a compound, a couple so to speak.

Electrons, like money, go to the strongest hand. Gather them where ye may: from nature, from antioxidants, sea minerals, charged air, earth and water. Water is the collector and universally overlooked matrix our cells swim in, where electrons are energized by light, heat, sound and friction. Strong charge gradients and polarities make stuff move. This is standard basic unimpeachable science, only without wires, batteries and generators.

Where conditions are acidic or positive, electrons are scarce and may even be stolen from the chemical bonds of complex molecules such as those making up our bodies. When a system is alkaline, electrons are plentiful so DNA expresses properly, structural bonds are not attacked, positive charge metals are dispelled and our cells remain powered up and intact. Life itself hangs on this delicate balance.

Consider the energy equation:

Sun Energy > Food/Water (+) Oxygen > Metabolism = Electrons (-) Oxidative Debt (Acidic metabolic wastes, Toxins/Metals, Emotional Stress, Inflammations) (+ or -) Electrolyte Mineral Levels, Emotions of Fear/Joy, Lifestyle Habits = Total Body Charge (Approximately 30-50 millivolts or pH 7.35 to 7.40 is Healthy Range)

Natural healing can be powerfully effective if implemented holistically and quantitatively. Raising body charge is the goal. (Holistically means addressing every aspect of life. Quantitatively means using ridiculously overwhelming quantities of certain safe substances to restore a healthy voltage to the system, as with the counter-intuitive megadosing of vitamin C, niacin, oxygen, magnesium, etc.)

At the bottom of man's inharmonious relationship with reality lies a conditioned proclivity to rely on force to overcome his neurotic fears. Military aggression and chemically violent "wars" against cancers and pathogens are primitive brutish low intellect approaches. Greed, rape, envy, deception, consumerism and instant gratification are attitudinal creations of the chimp mind we've been forced to adopt in our fantasy of the American dream. No artful finesse here, it's ecocide.

Connect the dots, track the energetics of living organisms.

Trace the flow of oxygen from nose to bloodstream and through the metabolic process until it exits as carbon dioxide and water.

Follow food and minerals from intestinal tract out into the cells.

Consider the nature of fluids, circulation, viscosity, membrane construction and the digestion of waste debris by phages and garbage removal via the lymphatic system, skin, liver, kidneys and intestines.

Think of the tone of the body and how the consciousness is reflected in it.

Big picture: it all runs on electrons.

The Germ Theory of Disease

The question that never gets asked is:

"Do pathogenic bacteria, virus and fungi cause disease... or do unhealthy conditions inside and outside an organism invite their proliferation?"

The wholesale use of antibiotics and vaccines in humans and their food animals followed the shift to artificial grain/soy monocultures and feedlots, and preceded the prevalence of pathogens like E. coli and Salmonella in foods and the appearance of superbugs. The existence of a beneficial human biome has been broadly publicized, yet is largely ignored when a scary new bug arises from antibiotic-induced floral imbalances and resists killing. Hospitals are in crisis mode attempting to halt the lethal infections they unwittingly propagate.

So widespread is deficient immunity that disease control officials use the term "herd" immunity, but ignore the underlying causes in what the "herd" is fed. Maybe an acid-forming grain-based diet, deficient/contaminated animal products, missing minerals and metal/chemical pollution throughout the human "feedlot" play a role?

Bacteria, viruses and fungi are welcomed where metal loads are present, circulation is sluggish, oxygen is not delivered, pH buffering minerals deficient, metabolism is faulty and cells acidic. Doesn't this mean immune mechanisms lack the energy in the form of electrons to mount an effective response? Wouldn't it be prudent to use high doses of vitamin C, vitamin D, proton scrubbing hyperbaric oxygen and alkalizing minerals like magnesium, potassium and bicarbonates to boost cellular energy and dampen inflammation? Or add the natural immune oxidant, singlet oxygen, via hydrogen peroxide, ozone or again, mega C which generates hydrogen peroxide? Or use charge protectant high ORAC oils and herbal polyphenols which are antioxidants that simultaneously scrub damaging free radicals and knock down pathogens? Instead of pouring antibiotics with inherent collateral damage upon the world, why not restore healthy conditions and optimize immune function to "un-invite" them?

Though some bad bugs can attack the healthiest person at times, it is usually marginally healthy people who succumb and develop complications that robust individuals can withstand. Many live too clean, too sanitary, and rarely encounter the bugs they need to cue immune development. Many more unknowingly carry antibiotic damaged floral populations and intestinal infections like strep, staph and candida (think oregano oil) that weaken the system to the point that acute emergencies like C. difficile and pneumonia follow. Nasty anaerobes silently invade scurvacious gum tissues, and their toxins travel to affect the heart. Tooth decay and chronic root canal infections also source toxins and disrupt electrical acupuncture meridians.

The very idea of vaccination and antibiotics distracts from the thought of personal responsibility over immune fitness, to the point that a fearful public now holds anti-vaxxers responsible for their (in)security. Again, real science is squashed by corporate "science" which solidifies into political correctness and psychological dependence. The public only knows it has a tummy ache and is scared, but lacks the first clue. Ignorance is highly contagious, and false premises always yield faulty conclusions.

Cholesterol/Fat Mythology

The drive to change U.S. agriculture into mechanized corn/wheat/soy monocultures spun a web of lies so thick few have penetrated the deception. The public was switched off butter, eggs and animal fats onto the USDA "food pyramid" consisting of cereals, corn syrup, vegetable oils, margarines and "lean" feedlot meats. Today, after all the science to the contrary, saturated fats are still heart attack food. Polyunsaturates and omega-3's are recommended though few suspect the danger of easily oxidized vegetable oils. Sugars, salt, gluten and processed grains are falling out of favor, but apparently whole grains are OK even if loaded with glyphosate? The picture is still deceptive.

The real problem with factory meat, milk, cheese, poultry and eggs — besides antibiotic, hormone, other drug residues and bacterial contamination — is the fats. They are built on grain so Omega 3:6 ratios are reversed. Omega fats are polyunsaturates that oxidize easily especially when the animals lacked antioxidants from pasture grasses in their tissues. CAFO (concentrated animal feedlot operation) animal fats like others are saturated and therefore slow to oxidize, but are different: harder and higher melting out of the feedlot. Polyunsaturated vegetable oils get damaged, oxidized and turned trans in processing. Since brain cells and all cell membranes are made of saturated and omega fats, it is important to consume the best and freshest and most electrically conductive fats from pastured free-range sources. Membrane transport can be a bottleneck for oxygen and material delivery. Faulty membranes mean poor mitochondrial energy production and a decline in vitality. Membranes are also damaged in situ through oxidation under low body charge, inflammation.

Grains and sugars are generally acid forming since they generate protons faster than they can be absorbed by available oxygen and converted to water. Though these high-glycemic carbs provide energy up front, they sap electrons on the back end. Un-neutralized protons are temporarily stored in lactic acid with spillover grabbed by NADH (nicotinamide/niacin). Excess carbs are converted to triglycerides, "bad" cholesterol and body fat.

Cholesterol itself is an essential fat whose levels become elevated upon high carb/sugar intake. Trouble occurs when fat consumption is low, body charge is low, and inflammatory toxins and acidic oxidative stress are present. If vitamin C and collagenous proteins are scarce, vessel linings begin to oxidize and erode. Cholesterol is called upon to deposit band-aid plaques which can eventually occlude the lumen or break free to travel and block small vessels.

Statins are the wrong answer, based on a false and fraudulent premise— yet another example of research confined to an imaginary box by corporate "science." Instead, consider vitamin C megadose, vitamin E and the proteins and minerals (lysine/proline/glucosamine/hyaluronic acid/sulfur compounds) in homemade bone/cartilage soups, not only to halt blood vessel erosion, but to rebuild them along with all other connective tissues for beautiful skin, flexible joints, conductive fascia, healthy intestines and strong bones.

Doctors are trained to ignore nutrition, bad agriculture and fake food, and to preserve the lucrative business model of the sickness industry. As a profession, they will sell you dangerous drugs, but are remiss in pointing a finger at factory foods. Of course individual physicians may know better, but are locked into their standards of care. And what doctor has the time to correct patient habits and overcome the 24/7 harangue of the commercial media?

What if Americans were aware of the unhealthy counterfeit grain-based fraud that has replaced real foods? Wouldn't cutting down on high glycemic carbs and sugars be a better answer? What if they figured out that we jam more glucose into our cells than can be processed by available oxygen? What if they learned to eat pastured animal fats and proteins instead of fast-burning sugars that fry their cells in acid? What if they maintained an adequate daily intake of plant nutrients, minerals and fiber? What if they found out that modern "sick-care" is largely a trap that feeds off diseases caused by a politically favored food industry?


There are a number of rare yet well known genetic disorders, but today cancers and other chronic diseases are being blamed on genetic weaknesses. I don't buy it, since epigenetic expression is largely dependent on the context of body charge. In fact, all normal biochemistry requires a charge terrain of 30-50 millivolts which translates into a pH of 7.35 to 7.4 which closely tracks ORP or oxidation/reduction (redox) potential. A finely tuned body maintains this electron majority through breathing, electrolyte mineral levels, robust metabolism and a number of other feedback mechanisms.

DNA is just a complex bio-molecule and its on/off switches, replication and enzyme production are charge dependent. Just look at the common acidic charge killers that dampen expression: emotional stress/fear/shame, improper nutrition, toxins and unhealthy lifestyle choices; compare the longevity-boosting telomere protection of laughter, happiness, exercise and sunshine...or electron-rich antioxidants and free-radical-stopping polyphenols...or any action that keeps the electron balance to the good and away from inflammation and acidic oxidative stress.

Deciphering the genetic code was a Herculean task using incredibly sophisticated science. Applications, though, can cut both ways, correcting defects or creating dangerous monsters. Shouldn't the first order of business be to provide an optimal charge terrain to maximize expression and appropriate enzyme production?

Genetics? When diseases run in families it is helpful to remember that nutritional habits, lifestyle elements, health awareness and general attitudes do, too.

Toxic Metals and 80,000 Chemicals "Generally Recognized as Safe"

Thousands of chemicals get a free pass in our industrial machine, being GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), but which have never been studied. Other chemicals and metals, e.g. mercury and cadmium, that are known to be highly toxic, are deemed acceptable at sub-lethal part-per-million concentrations that result from current levels of pollution. The trouble is, they accumulate to reach dangerous levels in fat, brain and bones. Medicine generally opts for blood tests which do not reflect their hidden presence. Hair analyses are much more telling and even reveal mineral deficiencies associated with heavy metal loads. Medicine tends to dismiss these dangerous molecules as causative, preferring to address downstream symptoms far removed from their oxidative source. The best example of this switcheroo is the war on tobacco, where it's not the tar and nicotine, it's the cadmium, arsenic, aluminum, mercury, pesticide residues and radionucleides. Almost every disease has been blamed on the mysterious workings of cigarettes. And what links all these diverse "diseases?" Could it be the positive charge metals and lack of electrons? Too simple for complicated minds?

Twenty-two military veterans commit suicide every day due to PTSD and millions of men, women and children are taking psychoactive drugs. At the bottom of many neurological/psychiatric disorders is brain inflammation caused by metals, radiations and other toxins coupled with inappropriate nutrition, not drug deficiencies. These toxins are everywhere in air, water and food and place positive charges where they shouldn't be. They catalyze the production of vicious hydroxyl radicals which gnaw at cell membranes and short-out the body's electrical system without ever being consumed. They reduce circulation and oxygen penetration which causes cell acidity and loss of function. They must be dispelled from the body before cells can begin to heal. Military PTSD and "football dementia" also contain the element of repetitive brain-rattling concussion where highly underutilized HBOT is being proven effective.

"Poisons" have different modes of attack. Plastics mimic human estrogen. Glyphosate (the active ingredient in Roundup) bonds to manganese, zinc, cobalt and sulfates, creating deficiencies and disruptions of flora and normal biochemistry. Factory food processing has been found to create high levels of free glutamates and one more avenue to autism. Others, such as ionized fluoride, destroy enzymes or block receptor sites or precipitate calcifications or carry metals into the brain and generally trigger acute inflammations. Pharmaceutical wastes, fracking gases, by-products of mining and chemical production and anything burned, buried or flushed finds its way into living cells. When you say "detox," people think either Betty Ford or high colonic, not the mobilization and chelation of metal burdens and freedom from a stealthy cause of many dire diseases. Learning to avoid them requires being aware of the unnatural chemistry in one's everyday environment. But face it, we live on a drugged-up grain feedlot in an industrial sewer.

Different Diseases?

Medicine likes to label individual diseases as if each were unique. In fact they are all the result of inflammation, a shortage of electrons. Powerful oxidation is how metabolism generates energy and how an inflammatory immune response handles problems, which is well and good. Chronic inflammation brought on by various insults is just rust and decay. The question is then to determine the source of inflammation, remove it and recharge the body. Had medicine operated under this approach, precise protocols could have been established through clinical trials. As things stand, we can only use a general approach to correct nutrient/mineral levels, detox the system and try to improve emotional and lifestyle factors. Perhaps the best idea is for each of us to take charge of our own health.

We are nearing a point where sensitive humans are of necessity beginning to think. They see their survival at stake and are penetrating many modern delusions. It's time to take the next step and evolve.

Mysterious string of multicolored lights spotted over San Diego

UFO photo captured over San Diego


Did you see those mysterious lights southwest of San Diego on Tuesday night?

A viewer sent us several photos he took, capturing a string of multicolored lights in the sky above San Diego. The viewer, Larry Fox, said the lights that appeared to be red, blue and green kept flashing and changing colors from his vantage point in Del Cerro.

"It looked like a strobe light," he said.

Fox said he was out in his backyard when he saw the strange lights southwest of the Coronado Bridge. He didn't think it was a plane or even a drone because it was stationary.

"It was a series of flashing lights," he said. "If it was a plane, it would have moved."

A NBC 7 reporter and photographer also spotted the strange lights from San Ysidro as they were covering an unrelated story on Tuesday night.

A number of folks also called us here at NBC 7, reporting the same thing.

Unidentified special forces seen fighting against battalions of Ukrainian nationalists



Unidentified special task forces are conducting a special operation in the area of the township of Avdeyevka in Donbas to render harmless a battalion of Ukrainian nationalists, Eduard Basurin, an official spokesman for the Defence Ministry of the self-proclaimed unrecognized Donetsk People's Republic said on Thursday.

"About 5 a.m., our reconnaissance registered a brief exchange of fire at the positions of the Ukrainian armed units," he said. "Our reconnaissance officers said in their reports that an unknown unit of commandoes had stormed and seized a platoon-level fortified strongpoint set up by punitive expeditioners from a nationalistic battalion."

The case in hand might be precisely targeted elimination of the freewheeling warlords in charge of nationalistic Ukrainian battalions by foreign mercenaries dispatched to the zone of the conflict, Basurin said.

"That's the first time since the outbreak of the conflict that we see an operation of this kind conducted on Kiev's side in an area adjoining the frontline," he said. "The thing is the unit that stormed the positions of the Ukrainian punitive battalion used silent killer weapons that didn't belong to the Kalashnikov family of assault rifles and was obviously manufactured by a Western company."

According to the data available to the DPR Defence Ministry, four nationalistic militants were killed in the course of the assault and their bodies in plastic bags were taken into the rear of the occupied territory by the same bus that had brought in the unidentified unit.

Following the incident, the shelling of Donetsk airport from the side of the pro-Kiev forces stopped for some time.

In addition, DPR military radio reconnaissance registered the work of portable radio stations of European manufacture that had not been used in the zone of the east-Ukrainian conflict previously. They have a distinct functional property, as they transmit precise GPS data on the positioning of each member of the raiding force along with voice data.

"It's not ruled out that a specially targeted elimination of the most uncontrollable operators in the war zone has taken place on the background of a conflict between some nationalistic warlords and the authorities in Kiev," Basurin said. "We do think all the losses of manpower in the ranks of these punitive units will be attributed to the alleged shelling on the part of DPR Army."

"However, an open question remains over who did the elimination - a foreign private military company or a special task force from a NATO member-state dispatched to the zone of conflict and described the OSCE monitors in their reports as a third party," Basurin said.

George Soros: The hidden hand behind 'color revolutions'

© hlaoo1980.blogspot.com

While Baltimore burns, the city has proven itself to be yet another staging ground in a long line of scenes involving "violent protests," riots, and racial violence following an incident concerning police brutality, real or otherwise.

Although the issues that have set off the spark in most of these protests were entirely legitimate, government agencies, foundations, organizations, and NGOs immediately swooped in to divert the protests into racially charged fit throwing and often violent riots.

With a carefully orchestrated network that was capable of organizing large numbers of individuals on a moment's notice, and a simultaneous media campaign that cleverly showed violence and riots but ignored peaceful or appropriately-directed violent acts, these organizations were able to turn what could and should have been a national movement into a racially-oriented hate-filled display of unrestrained destruction.

With this in mind, one might justifiably ask how these organizations might have such an effective network that operates in concert with a national corporate media apparatus in order to wreck legitimate movements and, out of those movements, create a counter-productive act of mindless fit-throwing?

The answer is the same as it has often been in Europe - the color revolution apparatus and George Soros.

Indeed, George Soros has been heavily involved in the social unrest and movement-wrecking activity that has taken place all across the United States in recent months. From Florida to Ferguson and now to Baltimore, George Soros' Foundations have been involved in making sure that not only are American citizens unable to overcome racial divisions with mutual cooperation but that even the racially isolated participants are unable to accomplish anything of substance.

As Kelly Riddell of the Washington Times reported in January, 2015, regarding Soros' involvement in Ferguson,

There's a solitary man at the financial center of the Ferguson protest movement. No, it's not victim Michael Brown or Officer Darren Wilson. It's not even the Rev. Al Sharpton, despite his ubiquitous campaign on TV and the streets.

Rather, it's liberal billionaire George Soros, who has built a business empire that dominates across the ocean in Europe while forging a political machine powered by nonprofit foundations that impacts American politics and policy, not unlike what he did with MoveOn.org.

Mr. Soros spurred the Ferguson protest movement through years of funding and mobilizing groups across the U.S., according to interviews with key players and financial records reviewed by The Washington Times.

In all, Mr. Soros gave at least $33 million in one year to support already-established groups that emboldened the grass-roots, on-the-ground activists in Ferguson, according to the most recent tax filings of his nonprofit Open Society Foundations.

The financial tether from Mr. Soros to the activist groups gave rise to a combustible protest movement that transformed a one-day criminal event in Missouri into a 24-hour-a-day national cause celebre.

"Our DNA includes a belief that having people participate in government is indispensable to living in a more just, inclusive, democratic society," said Kenneth Zimmerman, director of Mr. Soros' Open Society Foundations' U.S. programs, in an interview with The Washington Times. "Helping groups combine policy, research [and] data collection with community organizing feels very much the way our society becomes more accountable."

Indeed, the Open Society Institute has been promoting "democracy" all over the world if, by democracy, one means the overthrow of governments unfriendly to Anglo-American banking interests and installing new and more corrupt leadership in its place.

Riddell continues by writing,

Soros-sponsored organizations helped mobilize protests in Ferguson, building grass-roots coalitions on the ground backed by a nationwide online and social media campaign.

Other Soros-funded groups made it their job to remotely monitor and exploit anything related to the incident that they could portray as a conservative misstep, and to develop academic research and editorials to disseminate to the news media to keep the story alive.

The plethora of organizations involved not only shared Mr. Soros' funding, but they also fed off each other, using content and buzzwords developed by one organization on another's website, referencing each other's news columns and by creating a social media echo chamber of Facebook "likes" and Twitter hashtags that dominated the mainstream media and personal online newsfeeds.

Buses of activists from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference in Chicago; from the Drug Policy Alliance, Make the Road New York and Equal Justice USA from New York; from Sojourners, the Advancement Project and Center for Community Change in Washington; and networks from the Gamaliel Foundation — all funded in part by Mr. Soros — descended on Ferguson starting in August and later organized protests and gatherings in the city until late last month.

All were aimed at keeping the media's attention on the city and to widen the scope of the incident to focus on interrelated causes — not just the overpolicing and racial discrimination narratives that were highlighted by the news media in August.

"I went to Ferguson in a quest to be in solidarity and stand with the young organizers and affirm their leadership," said Kassandra Frederique, policy manager at the Drug Policy Alliance, which was founded by Mr. Soros, and which receives $4 million annually from his foundation. She traveled to Ferguson in October.

"We recognized this movement is similar to the work we're doing at DPA," said Ms. Frederique. "The war on drugs has always been to operationalize, institutionalize and criminalize people of color. Protecting personal sovereignty is a cornerstone of the work we do and what this movement is all about."

Ms. Frederique works with Opal Tometi, co-creator of #BlackLivesMatter — a hashtag that was developed after the killing of Trayvon Martin in Florida — and helped promote it on DPA's news feeds. Ms. Tometi runs the Black Alliance for Just Immigration, a group to which Mr. Soros gave $100,000 in 2011, according to the most recent of his foundation's tax filings.

"I think #BlackLivesMatter's success is because of organizing. This was created after Trayvon Martin, and there has been sustained organizing and conversations about police violence since then," said Ms. Frederique. "Its explosion into the mainstream recently is because it connects all the dots at a time when everyone was lost for words. 'Black Lives Matter' is liberating, unapologetic and leaves no room for confusion."

It should be noted that The Gamaliel Foundation, which is described as a "net-work of grassroots and interracial organizations," is not only funded by George Soros, it was the Foundation where President Barack Obama began his career as a "community organizer" in Chicago. Obama's former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright who drew Conservative ire for a fiery sermon condemning America's actions (his famous "Goddamn America speech), is a trustee of the Soros-funded Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference, an organization that sent representatives to Ferguson early on.

In Ferguson, the use of clergy and ministers became a major part of the social movement as funded by Soros as well. Riddell reveals as much when she writes,

Representatives of Sojourners, a national evangelical Christian organization committed "to faith in action for social justice," attended the weekend [Gamaliel's weekend protest event in Ferguson]. The group received $150,000 from Mr. Soros in 2011.

Clergy representatives from the Samuel Dewitt Proctor Conference, where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright serves as a trustee, also showed up. Mr. Wright was Mr. Obama's pastor in Chicago before some of his racially charged sermons, including the phrase "God damn America," forced Mr. Obama to distance himself. SDPC received $250,000 from Mr. Soros in 2011.

During Gamaliel's weekend protest event, Sunday was deemed "Hands Up Sabbath," where clergy were asked to speak out about racial issues, using packets and talking points prepared for them by another religion-based community organizing group, PICO.

PICO is also supported by the Open Society Foundations, according to its website.

The Washington Times article also serves to shed light on a number of other more profile "national" organizations funded by Soros that descended upon Ferguson, now explaining some of the reasons that the protest movement on the ground in MO became such a disgraceful failure. Riddell further demonstrates this by writing,

Larry Fellows III, 29, a Missouri native, did find his voice in the chaos of Ferguson with the help of outside assistance backed by Mr. Soros.

Mr. Fellows is co-founder of the Millennial Activists United, a key source of video and stories developed in Ferguson by youth activists used to inspire other groups nationally.

Mr. Fellows explained how he started his organization in an interview with the American Civil Liberties Union (another Soros-backed entity that sent national representatives to Missouri) in November.

"Initially, it would just be that we would show up for protests, and the next day we'd clean up the streets. A lot of the same people were out at the protests and going out to lunch and talking about what was happening. That became a cycle until a lot of us figured out we needed to have a strategy," Mr. Fellows explained to the ACLU, which posted the interview in its blog.

"Then a lot of organizers from across the country started to come in to help us do the planning and do the strategizing. That helped us start doing it on our own and planning out actions and what our narratives were going to be," he said.

MAU has listed on its website that it has partnered with Gamaliel network churches. They've also received training on civil disobedience from the Advancement Project — which was given a $500,000 grant from Mr. Soros in 2013 "to build a fair and just, multi-racial democracy in America through litigation, community organizing support, public policy reform, and strategic communications," according to the Foundation's website.

The Advancement Project, based in Washington, also arranged the meeting between community organizers in Ferguson and Mr. Obama last month to brief him on the situation in Ferguson and to set up a task force that examines trust between police and minority communities.

In addition, the Advancement Project has also dedicated some of its staff to lead organizations in Ferguson, like the Don't Shoot Coalition, another grass-roots group that preaches the same message, links to the same Facebook posts and "likes" the same articles as DPA, ACLU, Hands Up Coalition, OBS, MORE and others.

It should also be noted that the Open Society Institute, one of Soros' main NGOs, has worked closely with Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Google in making Baltimore one of their "test cities" for smart technology and new fiber cables. Rawlings-Blake has had pleasant things to say about Soros in the past.

While the above information addresses the involvement of #blacklivesmatter groups and similar organizations active on the ground inside Ferguson as a matter of historical precedent, these organizations and similar operations such as the Black Youth Project (funded by Soros) and the Open Society Institute and its subsididiaries have had a sizable presence inside Baltimore in the time leading up to the Freddie Gray protests and continue to do so as we speak.

For instance, Baltimore United Viewfinders has received a sizeable grant from the OSI for the purpose of working with a coalition of community partners and the Maryland Institute College of Art to use digital media to engage East Baltimore youth in peer-to-peer arts and social justice programming. Other organizations and individuals have received grants from the OSI to promote "social justice" and "democracy" through theatre and the arts while others operate on a more charitable basis, providing guidance in healthcare matters and community organizing skills. As one will see from the discussion of the methodology of color revolutions below as well as the discussion of the preparation that goes into these social phenomena, the structure of "community organizations" and "community influence" is important to the color revolution apparatus. The ability to take advantage of unemployed, under-educated, lonely, and hopeless youth is one of the greatest opportunities that the Soros color revolution organizations understand and firmly grasp.

The relevance of the Soros connection may seem confusing to many. Certainly, however, no one in their right mind will suggest that a man that has made his fortune bankrupting nations and impoverishing their peoples lies awake at night wringing his hands over concerns for black people in America.

Soros is most well-known for playing a major role in the funding and facilitating of the "Bulldozer Revolution" in Serbia that overthrew Slobodan Milosevic in 2000, Georgia's "Rose Revolution" of 2003, the 2006 push to move Turkey toward a more Islamist governing structure, and even the Occupy movement in the United States among a great many others - none of which brought anything other than greater misery, impoverishment, and police state mechanisms to bear on the general public. The Occupy movement, being the only exception, still brought nothing to its participants except the opportunity to burn off excess anger and energy along with a few cracked protester skulls. It was otherwise an incredible waste of time.

Regardless, the methods being used by the Soros machine in terms of the #blacklivesmatter and other related campaigns across the country are much the same as those used in Europe to usher in greater austerity, police states, and fascism through government-coup and social protest - i.e. a coordinated media campaign to provide the general public with a false perception of events as well as a false narrative, the use of social media and slogans, and the deployment of "swarming adolescents" in the streets.

When media campaigns alone are not enough, there are other methods that are able to be implemented if need be. For instance, a Mother Jones report revealed the fact that in some areas where rioting began, there appears to have been a concerted effort on the part of the authorities to create an environment in which riots would be inevitable. For example, in an instance where it was reported that teens in Baltimore attacked police by throwing rocks, it was never mentioned that police had corralled these teens - who should have been on their way home - off the bus and into an area in between the mall and the high school. According to onlookers, it appeared that both the teens and the police were surprised at the situation - the police surprised at the lack of violence and the teens surprised that they were kept from going home. Eventually, rocks and bottles were reportedly thrown at police and the situation deteriorated from there. Of course, the entire story was never fully reported in the mainstream press. Still, while the rocks and bottles may have started from those in the crowd, others may justifiably wonder if there were not provocateurs already placed simply waiting to cause violence as soon as the tension had reached a boiling point. As it is, it is very likely that protesters and police alike were dupes in a devious game.

Consider also the fact that the Baltimore authorities, despite implementing heavy-handed tactics against high schoolers on their way home, allowed criminals, thieves, and violent thugs to prey upon innocent people, private property, and communities for quite some time without a serious effort to stop them. In fact, Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake even openly admitted that the looters were allowed to riot when she stated that "We also gave those who wish to destroy space to do that as well." The police were prevented from actually stopping the riots and were kept largely unequipped as well. In other words, the riots were both allowed and encouraged until they had reached a boiling point and the National Guard was called in.

Of course, the color revolution and destabilization is not merely some communiqué presented to a small group of people that organically takes on a life of its own. There is an entire science behind the application of a movement of destabilization both when it takes place overseas as well as when it takes place domestically. As Pottenger and Frieson of Color Revolutions and Geopolitics write,

Many are the professions that utilize this type of understanding, including (but not limited to) marketing, advertising, public relations, politics and law-making, radio, television, journalism and news, film, music, general business and salesmanship; each of them selling, branding, promoting, entertaining, sloganeering, framing, explaining, creating friends and enemies, arguing likes and dislikes, setting the boundaries of good and evil: in many cases using their talents to circumvent their audiences' intellect, the real target being emotional, oftentimes even subconscious.

Looking beneath the facade of the color revolutionary movement we also find a desire-based behavioral structure, in particular one that has been built upon historical lessons offered by social movements and periods of political upheaval.

It then makes sense that the personnel of such operations include perception managers, PR firms, pollsters and opinion-makers in the social media. Through the operational infrastructure, these entities work in close coordination with intelligence agents, local and foreign activists, strategists and tacticians, tax-exempt foundations, governmental agencies, and a host of non- governmental organizations.

Collectively, their job is to make a palace coup (of their sponsorship) seem like a social revolution; to help fill the streets with fearless demonstrators advocating on behalf of a government of their choosing, which then legitimizes the sham governments with the authenticity of popular democracy and revolutionary fervor.

Because the operatives perform much of their craft in the open, their effectiveness is heavily predicated upon their ability to veil the influence backing them, and the long-term intentions guiding their work.

Their effectiveness is predicated on their ability to deceive, targeting both local populations and foreign audiences with highly-misleading interpretations of the underlying causes provoking these events.

With this explanation in mind, consider the description provided by Ian Traynor of the Guardian regarding the "revolutions" and "mass movements" which was taking place in Ukraine, Serbia, Belarus, and Georgia in 2004 and the time of the writing of his article. Indeed, Traynor's depiction of the methodology used by the Foundations, NGOs, and government agencies stirring up dissent and popular revolt is equally illuminating. Traynor writes,

In the centre of Belgrade, there is a dingy office staffed by computer-literate youngsters who call themselves the Centre for Non-violent Resistance. If you want to know how to beat a regime that controls the mass media, the judges, the courts, the security apparatus and the voting stations, the young Belgrade activists are for hire.

They emerged from the anti-Milosevic student movement, Otpor, meaning resistance. The catchy, single-word branding is important. In Georgia last year, the parallel student movement was Khmara. In Belarus, it was Zubr. In Ukraine, it is Pora, meaning high time. Otpor also had a potent, simple slogan that appeared everywhere in Serbia in 2000 - the two words "gotov je", meaning "he's finished", a reference to Milosevic. A logo of a black-and-white clenched fist completed the masterful marketing.

In Ukraine, the equivalent is a ticking clock, also signalling that the Kuchma regime's days are numbered.

Stickers, spray paint and websites are the young activists' weapons. Irony and street comedy mocking the regime have been hugely successful in puncturing public fear and enraging the powerful.

These slogans and symbols are the product of mass marketers employed by State Departments and intelligence agencies for the sole purpose of destabilizing and/or overthrowing a democratically elected or unfavorable (to the oligarchy)government.

The details and techniques of the manipulation of mass numbers of people have only continued to become more and more advanced and sophisticated, particularly with the advent of social media.

As Jonathan Mowat wrote,

As in the case of the new communication technologies, the potential effectiveness of angry youth in postmodern coups has long been under study. As far back as 1967, Dr. Fred Emery, then director of the Tavistock Institute, and an expert on the "hypnotic effects" of television, specified that the then new phenomenon of "swarming adolescents" found at rock concerts could be effectively used to bring down the nation-state by the end of the 1990s. This was particularly the case, as Dr. Emery reported in "The next thirty years: concepts, methods and anticipations,'' in the group's "Human Relations," because the phenomena was associated with "rebellious hysteria." The British military created the Tavistock Institute as its psychological warfare arm following World War I; it has been the forerunner of such strategic planning ever since. Dr. Emery's concept saw immediate application in NATO's use of "swarming adolescents" in toppling French President Charles De Gaulle in 1967.[1]


In November 1989, Case Western Reserve in Cleveland, Ohio, under the aegis of that university's "Program for Social Innovations in Global Management," began a series of conferences to review progress towards that strategic objective, which was reported on in "Human Relations" in 1991. There, Dr. Howard Perlmutter, a professor of "Social Architecture'' at the Wharton School, and a follower of Dr. Emery, stressed that "rock video in Kathmandu," was an appropriate image of how states with traditional cultures could be destabilized, thereby creating the possibility of a "global civilization." There are two requirements for such a transformation, he added, "building internationally committed networks of international and locally committed organizations,'' and "creating global events" through "the transformation of a local event into one having virtually instantaneous international implications through mass-media."[2]

The American people must quickly learn the formula behind color revolutions, destabilizations, and the agendas of the world oligarchy before it becomes too late for us all. They must learn that simply because "leaders" appear to them, attempt to speak the same language and articulate rage does not mean that these leaders are men of the people.

Protests are necessary. Directed rage may also be necessary. But the wanton destruction of communities belonging to you or your neighbors is not only counterproductive, it produces rage that will be aimed back at you, and justifiably so. The entire country is being played like a fiddle. Baltimore is not an isolated collection of dupes, it is a microcosm. It is time the American people wise up and become street smart before it is too late.

Second dead dolphin washes ashore in a week in Mumbai, India


The dolphin was taken to Bombay Veterinary College for a post-mortem and then cremated yesterday


More people, perhaps, have seen dolphins in the city in the past week or so, than they might've seen in their entire lifetime. Another dead dolphin washed ashore Marine Drive on Monday, and this time, the civic body took nearly 15 hours to lift its body from the rocks.

The five-foot creature was spotted at 8 pm, on the rocks opposite the NCPA building. Locals informed the authorities and soon, officials from the Solid Waste Management of the A ward and the Marine Drive police reached the spot.

Last week, civic officials had displayed much alacrity and dumped a dead dolphin's body in the Deonar dump yard a couple of hours after it was found ('BMC dumps dead dolphin in trash', April 22), without even informing the forest department (FD) - as is required by law.


mid-day report on April 22

This time, however, police made sure they informed the forest department of the incident. R B Shahu, an officer from the Thane FD, said, "We received a text message from the BMC at 10.55 pm. Police and the BMC were present at the spot.

A dumper and JCB vehicle were called in around 12 am on Tuesday. But they couldn't manage to remove the body, since it had gotten stuck between the rocks." The fire brigade, too, was present on the scene. Attempts made by forest department officials to extract the body failed.

Naresh Rathod, assistant head supervisor, Solid Waste Management department, said, "The body was stuck between the rocks. We tried to push the body with the help of bamboos, after which we managed to lift it up at 10.30 am on Tuesday."

The corpse was taken to the Bombay Veterinary College in Vile Parle for an autopsy, and later cremated. Anil Todarmal, range forest officer, Thane FD, said the post-mortem has been conducted and the report would be out on Wednesday.

Chile volcano: Cloud of ash and gas spew into sky as Calbuco erupts again

The Calbuco volcano erupted again Thursday, releasing a large column of ash into the air just over a week after it spectacularly roared to life following half a century of inactivity.

The Chilean volcano that erupted spectacularly twice last week is causing more chaos after once again spewing a cloud of ash and gas into the sky

Calbuco began erupting again today, sending a massive plume of smoke into the clear blue sky.

The volcano spewed over 200 million tonnes of ash last week, coating nearby towns, wrecking the local salmon industry, and forcing the cancellation of flights as far as Buenos Aires, some 870 miles away.

The volcano had gone quiet, but geological officials had warned it was still unstable and could erupt again.

Calbuco, one of the most active along a chain of around 2,000 in Chile, is in the scenic Los Lagos region around 1,000km (620 miles) south of the capital, Santiago.
