The biggest threat to humanity, far bigger than global warming/climate change, is about to get bigger, much bigger

I’ve been predicting this for quite a few years now: comets/asteroids and an ice age. People could have been getting prepared but now it’s pretty much too late. Oh, did I forget to mention plague with 80% or higher mortality rate? Been saying that, too.

The biggest threat to humanity, far bigger than global warming/climate change, is about to get bigger, much bigger

This Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, three former NASA astronauts will present new evidence that our planet has experienced many more large-scale asteroid impacts over the past decade than previously thought… three to ten times more, in fact. A new visualization of data from a nuclear weapons warning network, to be unveiled by B612 Foundation CEO Ed Lu during the evening event at Seattle’s Museum of Flight, shows that “the only thing preventing a catastrophe from a ‘city-killer’ sized asteroid is blind luck.”

Considering the recent Ebola outbreak (“Broken through all containment efforts”) and cases suspected in Pisa, Italy, things might be about to get VERY interesting. Hope folks have been getting keto adapted.

The Astounding Conspiracy Theories of Wall Street Genius Mark Gorton

Definitely a must read and share… however, about 50% or more of the US population will NOT think that his ideas are astounding conspiracy theories…

The Astounding Conspiracy Theories of Wall Street Genius Mark Gorton

The Astounding Conspiracy Theories of Wall Street Genius Mark Gorton

Mark Gorton is a prominent financier and a respected entrepreneur. He founded the music sharing site Limewire, and he runs Tower Research, a famed high-frequency trading firm. Gorton also believes that the “ruthless” secret cabal that assassinated JFK and planned 9/11 could be coming to kill his family.

Mark Gorton does not have a reputation as a crackpot. Quite the opposite. He’s been favorably profiled in the New York Times for his business acumen and charitable deeds. His experience as the head of Limewire—which disrupted the music industry and then lost a $100 million lawsuit as a result—was closely followed by the press. And when Michael Lewis’s blockbuster new book about high frequency trading was published recently, prominent media outlets turned to Gorton to learn what HFT firms are really like. The Huffington Post even dubbed him “the new face of Wall Street.” He is a very respected and very wealthy man.

This week, we were forwarded documents that Gorton was sending out to employees at Tower Research. These documents—embedded at the bottom of this post—are essays by Mark Gorton, laying out his theories on the secret high-level murderous criminal “Cabal” that is responsible for, among other things, the JFK and RFK assassinations, the presidential careers of the Bushes, Clinton, and Obama, the Oklahoma City bombing, the 9/11 plot, and the murder of countless witnesses, politicians, and journalists who sought to expose them, including Sen. Paul Wellstone and even Hunter S. Thompson. Everything, according to Gorton, has been an inside job.

lain Soral – World pedophile rings? Protected by politicians and judges?

This is VERY hard one to watch. Synopsis follows:

Alain Soral (the one who has been taken to court in France for publishing Douglas Reed’s book “The Controversy of Zion”) is talking about elite circles of pedophiles. A journalist for France 2 interviewed children, and they both drew the same drawing, made the same comments. A gendarme did some inquiries, and was ready to expose the case, but before the Court could hear him, he was found with two bullets in his head from different angles; it was declared to be suicide.

A paedophile was released after 10 years even though he had a life sentence, and same for Dutroux’s wife. They sent her to a Monastery instead of leaving her in jail.

Stan Maillaud, another gendarme, is hiding because he was in danger after publishing a video with pictures of those children, torture, rapes, murders…. and names of perpetrators.

Psychopath Bernard Henry Lévi said publicly that paedophila has become a “taboo”, and that people should stop labeling “different behavior” as “bad”. (Sick pervert!)

A politician got only 2 months of jail after getting caught on camera admitting to the rape of a 12 y.o. and saying that the law doesn’t matter.

A priest describes his experience helping victims, and regrets that it doesn’t only happen with the political elites, but that priests and high churchmen are also involved.

And finally, some heatbreaking testimonies from children telling a journalist what they saw in the black magic rituals…

Soral says that the elites get away with it, that the law never applies to them, etc.

American spring? Regime change America

I think it is only a matter of time before it happens everywhere. People really are sick to death of the wealthy elite raping and pillaging the planet and trampling down human rights. And the elites seem to be too stupid to know that they are just cutting their own throats.

Geopolitics of Empire: Mackinder’s Heartland Theory and the Containment of Russia

The short answer to why the U.S. hatched its hare-brained scheme to overthrow Yanukoych last November is that its real target was Russia, which stands in the way of the plans for world domination by a banking elite whose empire is centered on the U.S. The longer answer is more complex…

Geopolitics of Empire: Mackinder’s Heartland Theory and the Containment of Russia

What’s been happening in the Ukraine recently makes little sense without seeing it in broader geopolitical and historical contexts, so in my search for a firmer understanding of what’s going on, I’ve been consulting the history books. First off, it needs to be said that the Ukraine is historically a part of Russia. It has been “an independent nation-state” in name since 1991, but has been completely dependent on external support ever since. And most of this “support” has not been in its best interest, to say the least.

The short answer to why the U.S. hatched its hare-brained scheme to overthrow Yanukoych last November is that its real target was Russia, which stands in the way of the plans for world domination by a banking elite whose empire is centered on the U.S. The longer answer is more complex, but in the process of working towards it we discover startling historical precedent for everything that is going on today, right down to the very rationales politicians give for why they do what they do.

Austrian member of the EU Parliament Ewald Stadler, a firsthand observer of the Crimea referendum in Yalta, speaks out and speaks TRUTH. The only way this news will spread is if it is person to person because you can bet the psychopathic 1% want it covered up!

No reason at all to limit saturated fat in the diet according to the largest most comprehensive review

Mainstream science is finally admitting they got it all wrong – but millions upon millions of people are suffering the consequences of corrupt/junk science. Maybe some consequences would teach them to be more careful and not use humanity as a big experiment.

No reason at all to limit saturated fat in the diet according to the largest most comprehensive review

Conventional nutritional advice varies a bit depending on who you ask, but there are a few constants. One is the importance of limiting saturated fat in favour of polyunsaturated fat. Most Governments, doctors and dieticians would therefore have us eschew foods such as red meat, dairy products and butter in favour of vegetable oils, oily fish and margarine.

This week saw the publication of the largest and most comprehensive review to assess the relationship between specific dietary fats and heart health, as well as the evidence for the supposed benefits of supplementing the diet with polyunsaturated fats [1]. The study was carried out by researchers from the University of Cambridge and MedicalResearchCouncil,University of Oxford, Imperial College London, University of Bristol, Erasmus University Medical Centre and Harvard School of Public Health, and was partly funded by the British Heart Foundation.

The study brought together two types of evidence:

1. Epidemiological evidence

Evidence where associations between different fats in the diet and risk of heart disease were assessed.

This sort of evidence itself came in two types:

a. studies where associations between dietary intake of specific fats and heart disease were assessed

b. studies where associations between body levels of specific fats (e.g. as measured in the blood) and heart disease were assessed

2. Randomised controlled trials

Where individuals were treated with specific dietary fats to see what effect this had on heart disease risk over time.

45 epidemiological and 27 randomised controlled trials were pooled in this review. The total number of subjects involved in these studies was more than 650,000.

Here’s a summary of the results:

Epidemiological studies of dietary fat and heart disease risk:

Saturated fats – No association

Monounsaturated fats – No association

Omega-3 fats – No association

Omega-6 fats – No association

Trans fatty acids – Increased risk

Epidemiological studies of body levels of specific fats and heart disease risk:

Saturated fat – No association other than one specific type of saturated fat (margaric acid) that was associated with reduced risk

Monounsaturated fat – No association

Omega-3 fats – Reduced risk

Omega-6 fats – No association other than arachidonic acid (found in meat, eggs and dairy products) which was associated with reduced risk

Trans fatty acids – No association

Randomised controlled trials of supplementation with:

Alpha-linolenic acid (a type of omega-3 fat found in plants including flaxseed/linseed) – No reduction in risk

Omgea-3 fats such as those found in oily fish – No reduction in risk

Omega-6 fats such as those found in vegetable oils – No reduction in risk

The authors of the review conclude:

…the pattern of findings from this analysis did not yield clearly supportive evidence for current cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and low consumption of saturated fats. Nutritional guidelines on fatty acids and cardiovascular guidelines may require reappraisal to reflect the current evidence.

Should we be surprised?

U.S. backs off Ukraine, promotes Russian demands

What did we expect? What is so amazing is how Obama and Kerry managed to so completely make themselves look like fools by taking a completely untenable position, lying through their teeth, and now, just continue the farcical pretense that they have brains and know what they are doing.

U.S. backs off Ukraine, promotes Russian demands

There was another phone call today between Secretary of State Kerry and the Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov. The call came after a strategy meeting on Ukraine in the White House. During the call Kerry agreed to Russian demands for a federalization of the Ukraine in which the federal states will have a strong autonomy against a neutralized central government. Putin had offered this “off-ramp” from the escalation and Obama has taken it.

The Russian announcement:

Lavrov, Kerry agree to work on constitutional reform in Ukraine

(Reuters) – Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry agreed on Sunday to seek a solution to crisis in Ukraine by pushing for constitutional reforms there, the Russian foreign ministry said.It did not go into details on the kind of reforms needed except to say they should come “in a generally acceptable form and while taking into the account the interests of all regions of Ukraine“.

“Sergei Lavrov and John Kerry agreed to continue work to find a resolution on Ukraine through a speedy launch of constitutional reform with the support of international community,” the ministry said in a statement.

The idea of a “constitutional reform” is from the Russians documented in a Russian “non-paper”.

It describes the process of getting to a new Ukrainian constitution and sets some parameters for it. The Russian language will be again official language next to the Ukrainian, the regions will have high autonomy, there will be no interferences in church affairs and the Ukraine will stay politically and militarily neutral. Any autonomy decision by the Crimea would be accepted. This would all be guaranteed by a “Support Group for Ukraine” consisting of the US, EU and Russia and would be cemented in an UN Security Council resolution.

It seems that Kerry and Obama have largely accepted these parameters. They are now, of course, selling this solution as their own which is, as the “non-paper” proves, not the reality.

Here is Kerry suddenly “urging Russia” to accept the things Russia had demanded and which Kerry had earlier never mentioned:

Secretary of State John Kerry called on Moscow to return its troops in Crimea to their bases, pull back forces from the Ukraine border, halt incitement in eastern Ukraine and support the political reforms in Ukraine that would protect ethnic Russians, Russian speakers and others in the former Soviet Republic that Russia says it is concerned about.

In a phone call with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, their second since unsuccessful face-to-face talks on Friday in London, Kerry urged Russia “to support efforts by Ukrainians across the spectrum to address power sharing and decentralization through a constitutional reform process that is broadly inclusive and protects the rights of minorities,” the State Department said.

As it looks now Obama has given up. The U.S. plot to snatch the Ukraine from Russia and to integrate it into NATO and the EU seems to have failed. Russia taking Crimea and having 93% of the voters there agree to join Russia has made the main objective of the U.S. plans, to kick the Russians out of Sevastopol and thereby out of the Middle East, impossible.

The Russian (non public) threat to also immediately take the eastern and southern provinces from the Ukraine has pushed the U.S. into agreeing to the Russian conditions mentioned above. The only alternative to that would be a military confrontation which the U.S. and Europeans are not willing to risk. Despite the anti-Russian campaign in the media a majority of U.S. people as well as EU folks are against any such confrontation. The U.S. never held the cards it needed to win this game.

Should all go well and a new Ukrainian constitution fit the Russian conditions the “west” may well be allowed to pay for the monthly bills Gazprom will keep sending to Kiev.

It will take some time to implement all of this. What dirty tricks will the neocons in Washington now try to prevent this outcome?

SOTT Summary, February 2014: Fireballs, Extreme Weather, and Earth Changes

SOTT Summary, February 2014: Fireballs, Extreme Weather, and Earth Changes

The following video contains footage of some of the extreme weather, fireballs and seismic activity from around the world in February. Think the weather’s crazy where you live? Check out what’s happening elsewhere…

January’s ‘polar vortex’ returned to bury most of the US in snow… despite a record number of ‘winter wildfires’ breaking out as far north as Oregon.

Mount Sinabung in Indonesia erupted spectacularly… then a string of volcanoes followed the ensuing pyroclastic cloud down the mountain, while another major volcanic eruption occurred in Ecuador.

Severe flooding, tidal surges and hurricane force winds hit Western Europe, while Eastern Europe was hit by heavy snow and ice-storms.

A wildfire broke out in Wales between winter storms… as Atlanta, Georgia was knocked out by snow.

There were record snowfalls in Iran and Tokyo, more ‘strange sky sounds’ and the Great Lakes almost completely froze over.

A waterspout was filmed off the Australian coast, a major heatwave hit Brazil, and sinkholes opened up all over UK…

Is this normal?!

Imperial Hubris: Ukraine as a ‘regime change’ too far for the American Empire

As usual, Joe has dug up the dirt and put the puzzle together. There are a few things in this article that are just shocking like: “Based on its 1970-1990 growth rate, Ukraine’s population should today be 57 million. Thus, it can be argued, the IMF is responsible for the death of up to one third of Ukraine’s population these last two decades.”

Imperial Hubris: Ukraine as a ‘regime change’ too far for the American Empire

All anti-imperialists that have been secretly longing for the day when the last great Empire of our ‘modern’ era would finally do what all the ‘best’ Empires have done – overextend itself in both reach and hubris for all to see and usher in its collapse – should be looking at the situation in Ukraine with hope and expectation.

Well, maybe I’m getting a little carried away there, but the US-Ukraine-Russia debacle does seem to be presenting ‘we the people’ with a rare opportunity to see the great American Empire as the monolithic edifice, composed largely of lies, propaganda, rhetoric, fear and public credulity that it is. There is, perhaps, a chance to see that the emperor really is naked, and that our overblown overlords and their “greatest democracy on earth” exist and persist only because we all believe their carefully crafted lies served up to us in the yellow journalism of the Empire’s fourth estate, the mainstream media.

As the empire fades and the hubris of its leaders increases however, it seems even those carefully crafted lies aren’t having the desired effect. This week, both Obama and John Kerry exposed America’s vaunted ‘exceptionalism’ as being based on exceptional dishonesty when they made statements about Russian intervention in Ukraine. The funny thing is, both Obama and Kerry were actually trying to do the opposite – present themselves as paragons of righteousness. Apparently the Neocons from whom they take their orders failed to mention to these two spokesmen for Empire that ‘chutzpah’ should never be pushed too far, lest you expose your unmitigated effrontery and impudence for all the world to see.

In attempting to rally world public opinion behind him and against Russian President Putin, Kerry stated:

“You just don’t in the 21st century behave in 19th century fashion by invading another country on completely trumped up pretext.”

Emphasizing the point, he inadvisedly added:

“You just don’t invade another country on a phony pretext in order to assert your interests.”

Obama stated:

“any violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity [...] would represent a profound interference in matters that must be determined by the Ukrainian people. Throughout this crisis we have been very clear about one fundamental principle, the Ukrainian people deserve the opportunity to determine their own future [...] human beings have a universal right to determine their own future”.

I probably don’t need to go into too much detail about why, on the basis of these statements alone, the Nobel Committee should invent a new category called ‘most hypocritical statement by a politician in the history of the world‘ and immediately present it jointly to Kerry and Obama, so I’ll just throw out a few country names: Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, Syria. On Iraq, Kerry voted for the 2003 US military invasion on completely trumped up charges about non-existent WMDs that were used as a phony pretext so that people like Kerry could ‘assert their interests’. 1.5 million Iraqi civilians died as a result and today the country is in ruins and plagued by bombings and assassinations. Kerry went on to defend his vote during his run for president in 2004 against Bush. Obama authorized the March 2011 NATO bombing of Libya without congressional approval on completely trumped up charges of “protecting civilians” and justified by “right to protect” that completely denied the Libyan people their purported ‘universal right to determine their own future’. The bombing ultimately caused the deaths of 40,000 Libyan civilians and installed a fundamentalist Islamic government.
