    The Underground History of American Education (John Taylor Gatto)

    "In other words, the captains of industry and government explicitly wanted an educational system that would maintain social order by teaching us just enough to get by but not enough so that we could think for ourselves, question the sociopolitical order, or communicate articulately."

    I started the thread “Best Reads” soon after I joined MoA – I apologize for not adding to it – had 4 family member illnesses and deaths within 14 months – am still working through it all. Thank you to those who added the books they’ve read.
    I hadn’t been able to concentrate on reading for some time, but was (oddly) hooked back into reading by a historical novelist – Philippa Gregory – many of her works are based on historical accounts of 15th-17th Europe - and I checked for accuracy. What intrigues me about her writing is her overview of a barbaric royalty/nobility who committed heinous crimes because they believed in “manifest destiny”, and that every act of barbarism would be pardoned by God. Makes me think - the more things change…
    I’ve also been researching ADHD, Asperger’s Syndrome and other Autism Spectrum Disorders in adult education for an upcoming PD session I’m facilitating in January; a couple of good books:
    Healing the New Childhood Epidemics : Autism, ADHD, Asthma, and Allergies : the groundbreaking program for the 4-A disorders by Kenneth Bock
    The Adolescent and Adult Neuro-diversity Handbook : Asperger's syndrome, ADHD, dyslexia, dyspraxia and related conditions by Sarah Hendrickx
    I also found a significant number of cases of disciplinary actions and lawsuits against mainstream ADHD “experts” who were receiving kickbacks from BigPharma and/or misrepresenting ADHD research/findings.

    SaLuSa in Love and Light
    The changes are manifesting on your world one by one and although you might not be fully aware of them, they cannot be stopped and once your media are able to transmit clearly without false alteration of the news, you will be able to see what everything have changed. We know you want to see all the changes to be already done, but for very long time the dark ones prepared you for opposite, so now you have to allow for reversing and turning your society the other way around. Each one of you are creators of this society and now when you have found out the power you have within, should use it accordingly. Do not wait for anything because you have already been changed immensely and now it is time to help others to do the same if that is their wish. Spread your Love and Light wherever you go and do not let doubts slow your progress. All the messages you are receiving are here to inspire you to freely share your wisdom and love with those who are just awakening and seeking to know more. We are looking forward for the moment when we also can freely join you and openly help with your endeavors as newly emerged Galactic Beings.

    Dear Ones, please do not forget that you are the driving force for all the changes and once you have set yourself free from all the old matters, you will see yourself the way we see you as Beings of Light who are aware of their power of creating their path according to their wish, surrounded only with love energy and with their mind clearly focusing on what they want in life. Once you set your intention to think and act this way, your Guides and Angels will be showing you the road and if you choose to listen to their guidance as well as your own, one day you will find out that you have changed and no more negative or doubtful thoughts are in your mind.

    Some might be discouraged with the fact that there are still issues for clearing and after some days of feeling comfortably and blissful, another matter arises. Do not be surprised, because you have kept these matters unsolved for many, many years and were not ready to deal with them until now. Lovingly accept them and do not judge yourself in any way, as for some the hardest issues arising just now. Remember that after all is cleared, the blissful state of mind will stay with you and cannot be taken away from you. Keep this vision of peaceful mind and allow yourself to take another step in your journey home. Always remember that we are with you on this journey, as we are One. This knowing should comfort you every time you feel separated or alone, because we are only just a thought away.

    I am SaLuSa from Sirius and we feel privileged to be your guiding friends on your way. We feel the love you are sending towards us and are very happy that you are feeling it to be returned to you. Share it with all and see it returning to you, perhaps with a stranger's smile. Keep smiling and enjoy these times of great changes and know there is so much more to come.

    At the Precipice of a Brave New World
    by Scott Mowry

    • Global Currency Reset in motion
    • Revaluation will include 198 world currencies
    • The Restoration of the Republic is on the horizon

    We are standing on the precipice of a brave new world. We are witnessing the turning of the tide. And we are seeing the pivotal battle for humanity’s future reaching a very decisive moment.

    And the word from the front lines is –– the people have won!

    World currencies spinning up for revaluation.

    All signs are now clearly indicating the long anticipated Global Currency Reset is finally upon us! It appears as if this monumentally historic event is about to unfold, or is very cautiously unfolding as we speak.

    At this point in time, an enormous, co-ordinated world-wide effort is underway to implement an unprecedented reboot of the new economic system. The sheer complexity and details of this kind of undertaking must be done with the utmost care and concern. It simply has to be done right.

    Any gremlins or glitches remaining within the birth of this new, glorious economic system are being immediately sniffed out and addressed with the utmost speed and efficiency. One has to appreciate with this kind of ambitious objective, delays are to be expected. Nonetheless, events are now moving at a positively furious pace.

    As the Global Currency Reset unfurls, our world is about to be forever changed as the bonds of economic servitude are broken, never to be seen again. We must realize what a profound transformation is occurring in our world as never before.

    IRAQ SET TO KICK OFF GLOBAL CURRENCY RESET

    One of the greatest indicators for the GCR has been the many machinations underway within the country of Iraq over the past three weeks.

    Since their emergence from Chapter 7 by the United Nations Security Council on June 27th, the fledgling economic power of Iraq has been moving at lightning speed to fulfill all the requirements to become a major global player. It is truly remarkable to see how rapidly the Iraq government is pulling their act together after seemingly years of ineptitude.

    However, they can be forgiven. After decades of abuse at the hands of kings and conquerors alike, the Iraqi people are now finally realizing they are at the threshold of becoming a sovereign nation with a very, very bright future ahead. They are arising from the dead like the proverbial phoenix rising from the ashes.

    With the rebirth of their nation comes one very vital and most important step –– the revaluation of the Iraqi currency known as the dinar. When the dinar finally reaches the stage of revaluation, which could be at any time now, the end result will be instantly becomes one of the world’s most stable and strongest currencies.

    The dinar will backed with some of the planet’s richest array of assets to be found anywhere –– from oil to gold, from silver to diamonds and all the other vast amount of natural resources buried within Iraq’s ancient lands. In a word, Iraq is loaded.

    And let us not forget, Iraq has long been known as the cradle of civilization where humanity formed its first civilizations in the ancient areas of Sumer, Mesopotamia and Babylon. Its history is as rich as its resources. And the irony that Iraq ––of all places –– will be lynch-pin of a rebirth of the new global economic system cannot be underestimated.

    Much attention now is focusing on the Iraqi Stock Exchange (ISX) which has been approved to be incorporated into the NASDAQ Exchange system. In order for the ISX to enter into global markets, it must have an internationally tradeable currency. So, simply put, a revaluation of the dinar is categorically essential and inevitable.

    Like Iraq, many other economically deprived nations are about to experience nearly the same kind of astounding rebirth. These will be third world countries abused by international bankers who have raped and pillaged their lands and resources leaving them hopelessly in debt, never able to repay. Therefore it is important to keep in mind, this is more than a mere Iraq event but rather a global one.

    Now, as many as 198 global currencies are undergoing a revaluation of some sort or another –– although several will be somewhat devalued in order to level the world economic playing field. Nevertheless, most of the world’s utterly worthless currencies, like the dinar, will find their values sky-rocketing. All in valiant effort to thwart the New World Order take down of the planet as oceans and oceans of fraudulent red ink is wiped off the books for good.

    Realize this –– all is transmuting now. All is transcending now. All is transforming now in the most spectacular ways one can possibly imagine.

    And all is coming together in perfect alignment and agreement. From the Central Bank of Iraq (CBI), to the United States Treasury (UST), to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), to the BRICS alliance, to the major US banks, all the while with China and the Chinese elders standing watch pushing and prodding them forward. Never giving up. Never letting the key players rest until the job gets done. The Chinese have a reputation for being very thorough and very patient, hence perhaps another rationale why we have seen some delays.

    Along with the Chinese elders, these key players include: new US Treasury Secretary, Jack Lew; IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde; Russian President Vladimir Putin; and newly-elected Chinese President, Xi Jingping.

    A Chinese delegation met recently with Secretary Lew in Washington, DC to resolve any last minute issues with the Global Currency Reset on July 10th and by all accounts the meeting went exceedingly well.

    Do not underestimate what we are now seeing. It is nothing short of miraculous. This crazy, insane world of seven billion diverse people is coming together. Co-operating like never before. Aligning like never before. Becoming one like never before.

    One heart. One mind. One human family.

    THE RESTORATION OF THE REPUBLIC
    Soon, just as Iraq and many other countries are arising from the dead, so too will the United States of America. The restoration of our Republic is at hand.

    Once the Global Currency Reset is firmly established, many other trillions of dollars will begin to be repaid to countries, governments and people through a variety of established programs such as the World Global Settlements (WGS), the Global Collateral Accounts and vast array of other prosperity programs.

    The end result will be the largest transfer of wealth in the entire history of the world. This transfer of wealth will be nothing short of mind-boggling with as much as $4 quadrillion (that’s right, quadrillion $) changing hands.

    Perhaps simultaneously or shortly thereafter, the United States will begin its amazing and spectacular regeneration. A constitutional government will re-emerge, a monstrous federal bureaucracy will be severely reduced, taxes will disappear (save for a minor sales tax on non-essential items), the military will be totally downsized and transformed, the justice systems will be overhauled and corrupt politicians, both current and former, will be arrested.

    Granted, all of these changes will not happen instantaneously and may take time to fully enact, yet nonetheless, these will be just the beginning! Many more equally profound changes will follow.

    Your television and your computer screens will be overflowing with the true history of the world as hours and hours of re-education material will be broadcast to inform the general public of the great changes being instituted. Reports suggest as much as forty hours of material has already been prepared. It promises to be must-see-TV for the ages.

    THE GOLDEN $100 BILL
    And understand this renaissance of the US is already well underway. It is happening right now!

    The privately-owned Federal Reserve, soon to be rolled into the US Treasury, has announced long ago it will be issuing new money beginning on October 8, 2013. There has even been a brand new website created to showcase this new money at: http://www.newmoney.gov. The initial designs feature a great deal of extremely prominent and very obvious gold symbolism.

    Plenty of reports are suggesting the current Federal Reserve Note (FRN) will be replaced by either a new Treasury Note (TRN) or a new Treasury Bill very, very soon. In fact, some have reported the 100 year charter of the Fed which began in 1913 expired in January of this year.

    Although the preliminary designs of the new money still contain the words “Federal Reserve Note,” they may remain there for the time being so as not to alarm the general population just yet.


    The new gold laden $100 bill.



    However, as we examine the new $100 bill to the right, we see a great deal of highly interesting symbolism. Notice the security strip to the right of Benjamin Franklin. It appears as if this strip is demarcation line between two systems or two worlds.

    Everything to the left of the security strip is in the colors green, black and gray represents the old debt-based system. While to the right we find many vibrant yellow, green and most particularly gold colors such as in the ink well with a liberty bell embedded within it; a gold quill; and a gold “100″ all symbolizing the new asset-backed system coming on board.

    And if you look carefully, you will see the words of none other than the Declaration of Independence in gold script also found on the right hand side featuring the excerpt of: “…the People to alter or abolish it, and to institute new…,” conspicuously prominent. All told, this gold symbolism is adding up to unequivocally state the US is returning to the gold standard as soon as possible.

    This new $100 dollar bill clearly represents the process we find ourselves in today as if we are moving through the illusion of linear time from left to right, from an old paradigm to a new one. From the old Federal Reserve system to the newly reborn US Treasury. From worthless fiat paper to asset-backed money of great and lasting value. From 100 years of debt slavery to a new life freedom and abundance.

    From the power age of big government, big corporations and big money to the Golden Age, which is all about the power of the people!

    VENTURING THROUGH A PORTAL
    As an old way of being stays behind us, we have entered into a portal. At the end of this portal lies a new Earth, a new world –– a whole new way of life. A whole new existence for you and me and everyone on planet Earth.

    The old world was about control, manipulation and unending drama –– all bound together tightly by duality consciousness.

    The new world is about peace, harmony, love and oneness. It is wrapped within the loving and graceful arms of unity consciousness. And what a wonderful contrast it will be.

    Unity the Movie

    As the full weight of what is transpiring is absorbed into your consciousness, it will be life-changing on every level of existence. Gone will be the days of living in survival from paycheck to paycheck as abundance and freedom sweep the planet. The euphoria will be unstoppable and unending. And it will last all throughout your life.

    All of this may sound like some kind of wild and crazy dream. And indeed it is. It is a dream of those who have dared to dream the unthinkable. That ordinary men and women could live in a time of peace, brotherhood and prosperity for all in what can only be described as the true Golden Age for humanity. And it will last for at least the next 1,000 years.

    That Golden Age has been unfolding for nearly two years now, since October 28, 2011. Although admittedly rather painfully slowly thus far, when the Global Currency Reset is finally completed, it will herald a great shift of the matrix. An acceleration in the evolution of the human race will come into the awareness of nearly everyone on the planet. And there will be a great and grand celebration.

    Have patience. Have faith. And stay vigilant.

    Expect many miracles and blessings to be forthcoming in your life beginning right now. It is your destiny and it is your birthright. There is nothing to fear and positively everything to gain.

    You might expect to have to pinch yourself a time or two as you wonder, “is this really happening??”

    And yes, it really, really is happening. And it has really begun right now!

    RETURN TO INNOCENCE

    12-21-2013





    After the very successful activation of the Aion portal, it is time to take action again! Therefore we will meet in groups large and small, as individuals and couples, at the time of the solstice on December 21st, to experience the Return to Innocence. Many of us will gather and open ourselves to the deepest aspect of our Being, the innocent Soul, to anchor our consciousness beyond the world of games the Cabal tries to play with us.



    Our inner experience will support the plan for planetary liberation, so that it manifests as soon as possible, as non-violently and smoothly as possible. We can do it! It needs to go viral! We need to reach many people, so that the critical mass of people actually doing it is attained. Please post it on your websites and blogs. If you know an alternative media outlet, you can send it to them. You can create a Facebook group for your local group of people dong this in your part of the world. You can create a video about this and post it on Youtube.



    The moment of solstice on December 21st will be a culmination point of a mini portal which will open at the end of October-December Window of Opportunity. This mini portal will be a multidimensional window to further anchor and ground the energies of the Aion portal and prepare us for the activation of a very important portal which will open in April 2014.



    The mini portal will open with full moon on December 17th, will have its turning point with Return to Innocence activation on December 21st and will close on December 25th.



    The heliocentric chart for Return to Innocence activation shows a grand trine of Jupiter, Saturn and Chiron (together with Juno), healing a grand square of Venus, Vesta, Mercury and Juno. This signifies the time when healing of all tensions within the collective feminine principle is finally possible, leading us towards the return of innocence:












    When we are in touch with our innocent Soul presence, we are beyond the reach of the Cabal and their manipulations. When a critical mass of people experiences that innocence, there is no turning back. It will bring about the disintegration of Archon's control systems of karma, lack and guilt and open our collective consciousness for the arrival of the miraculous.




    Miraculous reality is the future destiny of our planet and the future outcome of the evolution of the totality of our universe, when we all converge into the One.













    We have been programmed by the Archons in Atlantis to stop believing in fairy tales and to buy into the reality they created for us. But we do not need to play the game by their rules anymore. It is time to wake up and begin creating a reality we all deserve. When you have a strong contact with your inner innocence, you do not need to struggle for survival or follow any other aspect of Cabal's programming. You can exit the game and being manifesting everything you need through magnetic manifestation by expressing yourself as a Soul and following your divine mission which helps you to contribute to the planetary liberation.



    We will be having our main activation in Glastonbury in United Kingdom. Glastonbury is one of the most powerful Goddess vortices on the planet and the perfect place to anchor the Return to Innocence activation. You are more than welcome to join us:




    http://portal2012.org/Glastonbury.html




    Even if you can not join us in Glastonbury, you can do this activation in your own group or even alone, wherever in the world you are. We will all be doing this activation at the same time, at the moment of the solstice, which comes on December 21st at 5 hours 11 minutes pm UT/GMT. This equals 6:11 pm CET in central Europe, 12:11 pm EST in New York, 11:11 am CST in Chicago, 10:11 am MST in Phoenix and 9:11 am PST in LA.


    You can view the exact time of the activation for many places here:


    http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Return+To+Innocence&iso=20131221T1710&p1=2477





    Instructions:




    1. Dedicate December 21st to get in touch with your inner innocence. Read a fairy tale. Play with your child. Watch the sunrise. Smell the flowers. Smile.




    2. Few minutes before solstice make yourself comfortable, close your eyes and relax by watching your breath




    3. Each time your breathe out, radiate your inner innocence into your surroundings through your heart chakra and continue doing so for anytime between 5 and 30 minutes

    By Ben Fulford

    The year 2014 will mark the beginning of a fundamental change in how this planet is managed according to sources including the Pentagon, the Japanese imperial family and the P2 freemason lodge. NATO and other European groups promise to start the New Year with a $15 billion project to help the Philippines and show Europeans were fundamentally changing their international modus operandi, according to the P2 lodge.

    There is also an avalanche of disclosure appearing in corporate mass media outlets about long taboo topics like 911, the Lockerbie bombing, the Kennedy assassination etc. indicating some sort of attempt at starting a truth and reconciliation process has begun.

    We are also once again being told of mass arrests of cabalists that have begun in the US. This time US Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew was named as one of those arrested for refusing to sign on to the new financial system, according to one Pentagon and one CIA source. A google image search shows the last time he appeared in public was 3 days ago. However, both myself and Christopher Story among others, have been told repeatedly that some top cabalist had been arrested only to have them appear in public the day after we wrote about the arrest. This could be that same old trick all over again.

    'SHANTARAM' is an (epic) 2003 novel by Gregory David Roberts, in which a convicted Australian bank robber escapes from Pentridge Prison and flees to Mumbai, India, where the story begins.  

    The protagonist is a man called Lindsay, who escapes Australian prison and arrives in Bombay (Mumbai) on a fake passport. where he befriends tourist guide Prabaker, who finds him a place to live - in a slum away from the eyes of the law.

    The slum is to be the home of Linbaba, as Lindsay is called, for the next few years. While he runs a makeshift first-aid center in the slum, he also engages in criminal activities like smuggling and counterfeiting, and eventually fights with mujaheddin in Afghanistan and acts in Bollywood.

    Lin’s experience in Bombay range from falling in love with the beautiful Karla to visiting Prabaker’s village where he gets the name 'Shantaram', or 'Man of Peace'.

    The fact that the author, who is foreign to India makes an effort to understand the pulse of a complex country - and does it in style, makes this book a compelling read, and the adventures of Lindsay/Linbaba never ceases to amaze you. The book is full of character’s and each character is a jewel in the crown i.e the novel.

    I have read thousands of books in my lifetime and 'Shantaram' most definitely is one of the best novels I've ever come across.

    To me one of the best 'long-reads' of 2013 was: 'Here Is What Happens When You Cast Lindsay Lohan in Your Movie'.
    http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/13/magazine/here-is-what-happens-when-you-cast-lindsay-lohan-in-your-movie.html?pagewanted=all&_r=4&

    It's an absolutely fantastic, amazing and hilarious tale about the making of the movie 'The Canyons' by director Paul Schrader (Raging Bull, Taxi Driver).

    Letting in the wild edges

    To read and sit with Glennie Kindred’s new book Letting in the Wild Edges is a truly delightful experience. It touches on some of the most profound issues on the transformation of what it is to be human in a way that is unusually direct, engaging and deep. It’s a book that ‘sings’! This is not a book about ideas of relationship with the earth (although it is full of insight into what it means to understand the oneness of life). Glennie Kindred leads us into new ways of thinking that bring us into a fresh relationship with the earth and its creatures and with ourselves. She does this through a wealth of possibilities (gardening, walking, hiking, eating, healing) that gently and lovingly introduce us to the wild edges of our being, the intuitive and imaginative parts of our self.

    This is not a book about pompous or high-flying ideas or ideals. Yet there is a sense that the act of letting in the wild edges is fundamental to the reshaping of humanity’s relationship with the earth. Our time in history is all about learning, as individuals, communities and a species, to respond appropriately to the crisis of climate change and the need to somehow develop a culture and civilization, an economics and a politics, that is truly sustainable. At the heart of this is the birth of a newly oriented human being who knows in a mythic, poetic, philosophical and visceral way that Life is One. Letting in the Wild Edges contributes to this grand process.

    TRANCOSO wrote:'SHANTARAM' is an (epic) 2003 novel by Gregory David Roberts, in which a convicted Australian bank robber escapes from Pentridge Prison and flees to Mumbai, India, where the story begins.  

    The protagonist is a man called Lindsay, who escapes Australian prison and arrives in Bombay (Mumbai) on a fake passport. where he befriends tourist guide Prabaker, who finds him a place to live - in a slum away from the eyes of the law.

    The slum is to be the home of Linbaba, as Lindsay is called, for the next few years. While he runs a makeshift first-aid center in the slum, he also engages in criminal activities like smuggling and counterfeiting, and eventually fights with mujaheddin in Afghanistan and acts in Bollywood.

    Lin’s experience in Bombay range from falling in love with the beautiful Karla to visiting Prabaker’s village where he gets the name 'Shantaram', or 'Man of Peace'.

    The fact that the author, who is foreign to India makes an effort to understand the pulse of a complex country - and does it in style, makes this book a compelling read, and the adventures of Lindsay/Linbaba never ceases to amaze you. The book is full of character’s and each character is a jewel in the crown i.e the novel.

    I have read thousands of books in my lifetime and 'Shantaram' most definitely is one of the best novels I've ever come across.

    Benjamin Fulford article: Please go to his website for the complete article.

    Benjamin Fulford - January 20, 2013: Systematic take-down of cabal accelerates with Vatican bank purge, mass resignations, mass firings etc

    Last week Pope Francis replaced four out of the top five officers overseeing the Vatican Bank in a move that sent shock-waves through the public leadership of many countries. In probably most countries of the world, when a new leader is installed, that person gets a visit from a cabal officer like Henry Kissinger who hands them a Vatican bank account book containing a huge bribe, according to sources including former CIA chiefs. The leaders are then told that if they do not accept the money and follow cabal orders they will be assassinated, driven out by scandal, or failing that, have their country invaded by US troops. For that reason, the change at the top of the Vatican bank is a sure sign something big is coming down.

    Also last week Queen Elizabeth announced she was going to hand duties over to Prince Charles as well as to Princes William and Harry, starting a “gentle succession.” Elizabeth is thus following Queen Beatrix of Holland and the King of Belgium in resigning in recent years from positions that are traditionally held for life. The generational change in royal families is in preparation for a change at the very top of the financial system, a Rothschild family source said.

    There is also a big storm brewing in China where a massive purge is expected to start in March with the complete replacement of all provincial Secretaries (governors), all mayors and most senior bureaucrats, according to a Chinese government representatives in Tokyo. This purge is being directed by central government officials, many who have fled to the country side with their families to avoid the massive pollution choking many of China’s large cities. This move is being made in an attempt to quell a financial crisis caused by rampant overspending and corruption at local government levels, the representatives said.

    Another interesting thing these sources had to say was that the Chinese government was thinking of starting up a state religion combining elements of Christianity, Confucianism and Mohism. The aim was to improve moral standards in China and strengthen social unity, they said.

    There is also something brewing in North Korea and the Chinese are not happy about it, one official said. Two top North Koreans who were close to China were executed last week as part of the ongoing purge of perceived threats to Kim Jong Un, he said. In response China staged a massive military exercise with more than 100,000 troops along the North Korean border. “China now views North Korea as an enemy state,” he said.

    This will be followed by a joint US and South Korean military maneuver also aimed at North Korea.
    Also, basketball star Dennis Rodman was nabbed and taken in for questioning last week immediately after returning to the US from his well-publicized visit to North Korea. The official story is that he went to “an undisclosed alcohol rehabilitation center.”

    http://www.contracostatimes.com/news/ci_24946047/dennis-rodman-goes-rehab

    Rodman was visiting North Korea as a personal representative of Barack Obama, according to North Korean sources. No doubt his “rehabilitators” will be trying to find out what that message was.
    North Korean sources in Japan also say the new North Korean regime had threatened to hit Shanghai and Beijing with nuclear weapons as part of a power play to force the reunification of the Korean peninsula.

    This may also be the real reason why government leaders in China and South Korea are willing to meet with Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, who is closely linked to North Korea through his ties with the unification church.

    The situation in Asia will probably not resolve itself until the removal of cabal control from the dollar and euro based financial system is completed.

    To this end dramatic changes are continuing in the Middle East, power base of the US petrodollar. Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan has been purging Turkey, the original home of the Sabbatean mafia, with increasing success. He has removed 350 police officers and 20 prosecutors and is now purging Bankers and TV propagandists.

    http://www.scmp.com/news/world/article/1408751/recep-tayyip-erdogan-purge-over-graft-probe-extends-bankers-and-tv

    The Gulf Cooperation Council also sent a delegation to China last week to negotiate a surrender and were told to end the rift with Iran and the Shia/Sunni split in general. Responding to this, the Muslim world invited Iran into “full membership in the Al Quds (Jerusalem [i.e. Israel]) Committee of the 57-member Organization of Islamic Cooperation (IOC)”

    http://www.debka.com/article/23599/Putin-to-visit-Tehran-King-of-Morocco-invites-Iran-to-%E2%80%9CJerusalem-Committee%E2%80%9D-%E2%80%93-with-Kerry%E2%80%99s-approval

    Russia’s President Vladimir Putin is also going to visit Iran soon to help bring peace to the region.
    The ongoing shift of Middle East power away from cabal control is of course going to affect Israel and the controllers of the old petro dollar system. Perhaps that is why the White Dragon Society was contacted last week and asked if it would be possible to go through Canada to make liquid some now frozen funding. This request coincided with the start of a four day visit to Israel by Zionist slave Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

    The WDS is insisting on a jubilee, a redistribution of fraudulently obtained assets and the immediate start of a massive campaign to end poverty and stop environmental destruction.

    The other move that is making cabalists nervous is the German government’s ongoing investigation of what happened to the 300 tons of gold it deposited with the Federal Reserve Board. So far only 5 tons have been returned and attempts to intimidate German Chancellor Angela Merkel with a beating in Switzerland (according to a CIA source) will probably backfire by driving the Germans into the Shanghai Cooperation Organization and out of NATO.

    This is well written and seems right but I cannot verify anything here and the source is an alternative news site. That being said, it is worth the read.

    China to Purchase the Federal Reserve
    January 16, 2014, JC Collins

    The U.S. Government Defaulted in October, 2013

    In essence, China has been slowly buying up the Federal Reserve for some time now. If you can call it a purchase. Its more of a negotiation over assuming the liabilities of both the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury.

    The Federal Reserve is the largest holder of U.S. debt at $2.1 trillion. China is second at $1.3 trillion. Think of it as the United States government doing a debt consolidation of all its treasury bonds because it can no longer pay or service the debt.

    China, or the BRICS countries, and/or a consortium of international interests, most likely organized through the I.M.F., will manage the U.S. debt through exchange rate increases and trade tariffs.

    The reality for Americans for the next decade or more will be price increases/inflation of 30% to 50%, segmented by industry and region, until such a time that its debt, or a negotiated margin of their debt, is cleared from the books.

    The post WW2 boom in the United States was funded by the exportation of the dollars inflation to what is now the emerging markets. Americans lived on the backs of other countries. Now the tables have turned. Or have been turning for many years already. This would explain outsourcing, trade agreements, immigration, favorite nation status, etc..

    Why would China and other countries take on the risk of this debt? Simple, it’s economic reset or economic collapse. Its in the worlds interest to re-structure the U.S. debt to save the whole whale from beaching itself.

    Rumors are circulating that the U.S. dollar will have a rate for in country use, and a separate international rate. That is because the U.S. treasury and the Federal Reserve are about to be severed from each other. The Treasury will control the in country dollar, and the “international reserve” dollar will be controlled by China and or the I.M.F. consortium of debt holders.

    The U.S. in fact defaulted back in October of 2013. This has not been told to the public at large. Why would the congress insinuate that the debt ceiling is now irrelevant? The only way the debt ceiling, or debt limit,(eg. the amount the government can borrow) can become irrelevant is if the U.S. has in fact defaulted and the process of default negotiations are taking place. Think of it as the rest of the world cutting up the credit cards belonging to the United States government.

    China has recently purchased the JP Morgan building in Manhattan for $725 million. One could reason that they have in fact purchased all of JP Morgan. And I’m sure it will soon be announced that China has or is in the process of purchasing other Western banks and physical assets. These banks make up the majority owners of the Federal Reserve.

    The gold reserves of the west have been depleted by China. Some say there is no gold left. This is more physical assets gone from the legers of the Western banks. The system of debt based money creation of the Western world is dead. It’s over. The shift East is in the final stages of completion.

    Obama’s so called “pivot east” is less about positioning assets to counter the stirring of the eastern dragon, and more to do with making those military assets easy to confiscate when the terminal day arrives.

    It will happen over a weekend, as many have already predicted. The televisions will announce the largest deal in financial history between the Federal Reserve and China. They will discuss how all the worlds currencies have been revalued to reflect true production ratios and physical assets. Accounts will be balanced. War criminals will be prosecuted

    By Karen Abler Carrasco, WSFS Consultant, Mentor and Teacher
    There might not be a bigger shift of energies in the entire 60-year wheel of Chinese astrology than this one coming up–the shift from two Water years of deep introspection to the fast-paced spurt of extroverted forward propulsion that the Wood Horse brings. Hold onto your hats, folks, and realize that you won’t be able to, nor will you want to, slow your horses in the New Year ahead!

    This will be a Promethean year, the Beginning of all beginnings, arriving around January 31st to February 4th, 2014. Full of uplift, optimism and compelling inspiration, we will be guided into purposeful action of the most elegantly simple and powerfully fruitful kind. After two years of feeling every revelation of corruption in the dark as if it was scouring our subconscious insides and wringing us dry of watery emotion, we are READY for this change! Light, hope and clarity of vision gallop in. Emerge from your cocoons, everybody, here we goooooo!

    Because this will be such a big change of energetic experience for us, it will help to review here how the cycle of the sacred Five Elements, or Phases, have set us up for this shift. In that cycle, Wood feeds Fire, Fire’s ash creates Earth, Earth’s compression reveals gems of Metal, and Metal collects and holds Water, which nourishes the Wood to start the cycle all over again. The natural laws of these five elements are actually working in multiple ways throughout Nature, our bodies, our psychologies and the energetic movements of all things here on this planet. In these movements, there are cycles within cycles, one of which is the cycle of birth, growth, disintegration and death, or the void that comes after old life and before new life.

    We have just been traveling through that void, in two Water years, which immersed us in a descending place of degeneration, dissolution and chaos, a time when our internal world of formless spirit and emotions held total sway over every attempt at external control or order. For most of us, it was an unsettling time of letting go of many things, either voluntarily or forcefully, a time of deep soul searching, with gradual or sudden destabilization in many areas of family and livelihood. There was a profound search for a return to a spiritual basis for daily living. This all had the effect of highlighting an individual’s isolation and powerlessness within a seemingly random and careless society. Not that outright rebellion and outcry didn’t happen, globally as well as internally. The 2012 Yang Water Dragon year saw to that, with its critical promptings of social responsibility and heroism, and this Yin Water Snake year that followed delved even deeper into the most hidden caves of stagnant dysfunctionality and corruption on all levels.

    The good and great news is that we have completed 5 years of the degenerative part of the cycles–that of the harvested, decomposing Earth, compressing and eliminative Metal, and dissolving, settling out, cleansing Water. We now emerge into the generative cycles–powerful, bursting buds of Wood’s new growth fueling the joyful outreach and passions of Fire and the beginnings of Earth’s fruitful harvests.

    So, that’s the Wood part of what’s coming. Now to turn our gaze to the animal symbol of Horse. This sprouting upward rush of Wood energy will find its perfect release into the impulsive and passionate nature of the Yang Horse, whose native element is Fire. The Horse energy inspires powerful INTUITION and an indomitable surge towards freedom in every aspect of life. This is a year to follow your inner voice like never before, for it will have a universal cosmic ch’i within it. Higher guidance is with us every step of the way. Reach for the sky, call up your vision, fuel your plans with vision boards and creativity, find a fresh path and pace yourself well. This yang Horse year has the potential to channel the powerful new upthrust of Wood’s Ch’i through the Horse’s Heart energy of Fire and into every project we start, every desire we reach for. It will keep our eager plans from being dominated by too much “head” and not enough “heart.”

    It may be quite challenging to trust that we have this absolutely new, purified and hopeful energy to build on now. Our hearts have had to endure a gauntlet of deconstruction through two Metal and two Water years, but the fiery Horse is about to change all of that. Within the extroverted “Green Horse” year, we will not only branch out with new growth, but we will be able to stoke the Fire element of love in every area of life. Follow your intuition fearlessly, as it is both the horse’s main attribute which preserves its freedom and powerful health and it is Wood’s primary talent for stretching into the unknown future. Reach out with irrepressible faith to a new level of social communion and mutual support. Trust every impulse to embrace a revitalized and renewed sensitivity for the pleasures this earthly dimension has to offer.

    Step up and out of any old clutter, stored memories, should-have-dones or regrets. The time to deal with that is over for now. Untangle your thoughts quickly and get clear on what it is that you truly desire in this lifetime. Your trusty steed is here, full of vibrant health and tremendous stamina. It should be quite a fast ride, so grab a fistful of mane, hang on to the reins, cast your old cares to the wind and let out a whoop of delight–Yeeehaaw! Upward and onward we thrive! May we all be blest abundantly as we hold each other closer in the circle of health and new life the Wood Horse year brings.

    The Lost History of The Little People

    Interview with Susan B. Martinez

    1. What was your prime motivation knowledge wise in creating your new book The Lost History of the Little People?

    I have been a student of the Oahspe bible for 30 years; within its books, you often hear about the “Ihins,” an extinct race of little people, known as the sacred little people. Some of my research comes out of sheer curiosity. I was curious to see if the Ihins would show up in the mundane record. It was over many years that I had simply collected scraps and snippets along these lines. The same thing happened before my Lincoln book: I began to notice how thick the file had become. Maybe it was time – to write.

    2. How do these hobbits aka little people fit in with the myths or folklore of our world when pertaining to faeries and other creation stories?

    Well, the fit is good. I like to work with diverse sources: paleoanthropology, ethnography, archeology, epigraphy, antiquities, oral history, mythology and legend … these disparate fields should be studied together, especially when you’re digging into the deep, dark past. You can’t really put the picture together without diving in to all relevant sources. In the book, I devote a lot of ink to creation stories that are consistent with the origins I had in mind; native North America alone is so full of little-people folklore, that it could fill a book in its own right. The British Isles also turn out to be rich in leprechaun lore and fairy fables. Just beneath the surface is a lot of historical material – if you know how to sort out fact from fiction.

    BRICS Inject Capital into I.M.F. Basket of Currencies

    By JC Collins

    In my previous post I briefly explained how China was in the process of assuming the liabilities of the Federal Reserve, in addition to their already held liabilities of the U.S. Treasury. Such a strong statement will require even stronger evidence. This I will attempt to achieve over this multi-part essay.

    one-world-currency

    “The legislative process is underway right now. We want the reforms to be adopted expeditiously. It’s really the U.S. Treasury, Jack Lew and his team that’s taking the lead on getting these measures through the U.S. Congress that are required to implement the 2010 reforms.”

    “Just to remind you what those are, the 2010 reforms do a couple things. One, they bring four dynamic emerging market countries into the top 10 shareholder ranks or what we call quota ranks of the institution. China, Brazil, Russia, India. It also doubles our permanent capital, the quota. And it also creates a fully elected Executive Board.”

    – William Murray, I.M.F. Deputy Spokesman, Jan 9, 2014.

    “The IMF is explicit in its antidemocratic leanings, what it calls “political considerations”. The SDR blueprint calls for the appointment of “an advisory board of eminent experts” to provide direction on the amount of money printing in the new SDR system. Perhaps these “eminent experts” would be selected from among the same economists and central bankers who led the international monetary system to the brink of destruction in 2008.”

    – James Rickards, Currency Wars, Penguin Group, 2011


    _______________________________________________________________________________

    G. Edward Griffin’s mind altering “The Creature from Jekyll Island” introduced many of us to the somewhat hidden history of the U.S. Federal Reserve. It told of how the Federal Reserve Act was passed in Congress during the Christmas break in the year 1913. It was insidious. And it changed the course of human history, as it planted the seed of what would slowly grow to become the world’s reserve currency.

    Though the U.S. dollar didn’t become the official reserve currency until the Bretton Woods Agreement of 1944, it is commonly accepted that the dollar had already usurped the British pound of this title well before it was officially acknowledged. As I believe the U.S. dollar has now already been usurped by another. We’ll get back to that in a while.

    There was another event which took place in the year 1913 which has been little understood or known at all in the western world today. After the collapse of the Manchu Dynasty in 1911, the remaining Government of the Chinese Republic issued bonds to foreign investors for the purpose of raising capital to rebuild the country. These bonds were titled the 1913 Chinese Government 5% Reorganization Gold Loan. Emphasis on the word gold for later reference.

    These bonds were pegged to the price of gold as a hedge against future inflation and were denominated in four currencies. The underwriting banks for the bonds reflect the four currencies which the bonds were interchangeable with at the time, which are now known as HSBC, Deutsche Bank, the Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, and Caylon – Credit Agricole Corporate and Investment Bank.

    Keep in mind that these bonds were issued in the same context as the U.S. Treasury Bonds which the world’s central banks have been gobbling up since 1944. These bonds had a yield. These bonds have never fully been acknowledged by the Chinese government. As a part of the deal with the British government for the return of Hong Kong, the People’s Republic of China did honor 10% of the outstanding bonds at about 62% of the face value. And what I can say at this time is that there is in fact a deal in the works for a final payout on the remaining bonds. We’ll get back to that in a while.

    10323072_1

    In 1944, as a part of the Bretton Woods system, the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank were created. These were western dominated institutions whose sole purpose was organizing foreign markets for the acceptance of U.S. dollars. We will leave the full explanation of these institutions and their role in structuring our current debt based system for another essay series, but for our purposes here, it’s important to understand that they propagated the exporting of dollar inflation to what we now call the “emerging markets”, or the BRICS countries.

    Since the initial printing of the Federal Reserve Note (U.S. dollar) in 1913, the “dollar” has lost 95% of its value. We see this devaluation of the dollar as inflation, or the increase of costs for items we buy. This devaluation of the dollar has had a few milestones. One is after the Bretton Woods Agreement when the dollar became the primary reserve currency of the world. The second came when President Richard Nixon uncoupled the dollar from its peg with gold. This was in 1971. A third milestone can be argued to be in 1973, when the so called “petrodollar” was created with agreements between the U.S. and Saudi Arabia, and later all the OPEC countries. This “petrodollar” scheme ensured that all oil trades were completed internationally in U.S. dollars. This was a slight-of-hand from the Bretton Woods arrangement to the “petrodollar” arrangement.

    A fourth milestone was obviously the onset of Quantitative Easing after the financial crisis of 2008. The chart below clearly shows how with each milestone the amount of debt (money printing) by the U.S. Treasury and Federal Reserve tag team has been multiplied dramatically leading to inflation. This is shown by an increase in the red line, which represents CPI – Consumer Price Index, the amount you pay for stuff.

    20131212_Fed1

    The only end to this pattern is an end to the dollar as the world’s primary reserve currency. Just like the British pound before it. In the chart below you’ll notice the same gradual downward pattern as the U.S. dollar.

    BritishPound1791-2004NOTES

    The central banks of the world were buying up U.S. treasuries before the British even accepted that there was a problem with the pound. The same is happening today with the dollar. In fact, most of the world outside the United States has already accepted the demise of the dollar as fact. But the idea is unfathomable to the average American.

    The International Monetary Fund issues a currency called SDR – Special Drawing Rights. The SDR’s are valued on a basket of currencies. In essence, it’s a true to life multiply reserve currency system. It has been slowly built up since the early 1970’s, at the same time the U.S. dollar started its serious devaluation. Could the plan have been in place since 1971 to end the dollar system through hyperinflation before implementing the SDR as a true world currency? Perhaps.

    On January 9, 2014, I.M.F. Deputy Spokesman William Murray was giving a press briefing. With zero coverage of this briefing in the western media, it’s important to relay what happened when the questioned was asked about the implementation of the 2010 Code of Reforms, or Governance Reforms. Mr. Murray answered by stating:

    “The legislative process is underway right now. We want the reforms to be adopted expeditiously. It’s really the U.S. Treasury, Jack Lew and his team that’s taking the lead on getting these measures through the U.S. Congress that are required to implement the 2010 reforms.”

    It seems both the U.S. Treasury and the I.M.F. are very anxious about these reforms. So what are they?

    “Just to remind you what those are, the 2010 reforms do a couple things. One, they bring four dynamic emerging market countries into the top 10 shareholder ranks or what we call quota ranks of the institution. China, Brazil, Russia, India. It also doubles our permanent capital, the quota. And it also creates a fully elected Executive Board.”

    This tells us a few important things. One, the influence of the BRICS countries within the structure of the I.M.F. is going to be greatly expanded. As stated, they will be in the top 10 shareholder ranks. These are positions previously dominated by western financial and U.S. dollar interests. The gravity of this statement cannot be understated.

    Second, it’s telling us that the BRICS countries are bringing capital with them. Enough capital in fact, to double what the I.M.F. presently holds on reserve. The BRICS countries will be injecting a huge amount of capital into the SDR system. One only has to research the amount of gold being exported to the BRICS countries, especially China, to understand where this capital, or worth, will come from. We’ll get back to that in a while.

    Thirdly, expanding the influence of the BRICS countries within the structure of the I.M.F. also “creates a fully elected Executive Board”. The Executive Board of the I.M.F. is responsible for SDR allocation. Let that sink in for a moment. The BRICS countries are going to have an equal say on SDR allocation. The SDR is being built up as the world’s reserve currency. The value of the SDR will be based on a basket of currencies. And the U.S. Treasury is pushing congress to make this happen.

    On August 5, 2013, the Peoples Bank of China called for a “New Bretton Woods” system where the U.S. dollar would be removed as the world’s primary reserve currency. It also called for an expanded usage of the SDR and for the new system to be supported by gold.

    In Part Two, we will explore how the U.S. debt, being the liabilities of both the Treasury and the Federal Reserve, will be consolidated with the treasury bonds held by China and rolled into the new SDR system.

    Hi Everyone,
    For those of you not watching the debates on Facebook, here is "Implications Posting #2" relating to the announcement that will be made this month. These implications postings are not a tease. There really is an important announcement that will be made in February, and you will hear about it right on this newsletter. The announcement has not been made yet only because things are not yet ready. The implication postings are necessary so that people put the announcement into proper "wide-angle" perspective.
    Warmly,
    Courtney Brown, Director
    The Farsight Institute

    ~~~~~

    Implications Posting #2:

    New evidence suggests that Earth may have been “run” in a manner analogous to a prison planet in the ancient past, where religions and monumental construction projects were engineered under near slavery conditions, possibly for the purposes of inhibiting civilization development as well as collective memory. While these efforts appear to have been interrupted, it is possible that residual disruptive influences remain.

    Notes:
    1. This is one of a series of “Implications Postings” that refer to an announcement that will be made during the month of February 2014. Once made, news of this announcement will be available at www.farsight.org and elsewhere.
    2. These postings are designed to encourage broad public discussion of the February 2014 announcement. They do not directly address the specific content of the announcement.

    Here is another Courtney Brown email that is somewhat cryptic.

    7 February 2014

    Hi Everyone,
    Here is the latest "Implications Posting #3" relating to the significant announcement that will happen later this month. Also, below that, Vic Guiza's latest edition of The Farsight Chronicles! Click on the comic to get the larger version.

    Implications Posting #3:

    Throughout all of history, profound change to human civilization has never resulted simply from the exercise of brute force. Such transformations have only resulted from the widespread acceptance of new knowledge, new ideas. Knowledge reasserts free will, something that can only be surrendered voluntarily by individuals and groups who are led to believe something that benefits the few who seek control over the many. Absent those beliefs, no physical force can stand, no matter how oppressive.

    Here is the 4th of the Courtney Brown messages.


    Hi Everyone,
    Here is the new Implications Posting #4 that is associated with the upcoming February announcement. Things are moving quickly now.
    Courtney Brown, Ph.D., Director

    Implications Posting #4:

    Above all else, those who govern seek to control what the masses accept as true, and there is nothing that they will not do in order to achieve this since it is the sole source of their power. The belief that those who govern would not brazenly manipulate knowledge simply for their own benefit is the single most important belief that supports their continued reign. This belief always leads to confusion, despair, and relentless cynicism from within the ranks of those who are controlled. Once this belief is abandoned, free will returns absolutely, and great change is inevitable.

    This is out of order but this was the 1st of the Courtney Brown postings. It would not paste and cut so if there is an letter or two that is not just the same, please excuse me. The overall message was not changed.

    Posting #1

    At least some of the claims made by Zacharia Sitchin and others involving extraterrestrial interference with human development on Earth in the ancient past appears to be true.

    Note:
    1. This does not speak to issues of Nibiru or its existence.
    2. This is the 1st of several Implications Posting that refer to an announcement to be made during the month of February 2014.
    3. These postings are to encourage discussion.

    Here is the 5th message from Courtney Brown.


    Hi Everyone,
    Here it the "Implications Posting #5" relating to the Farsight announcement that will happen this month.

    ~~~~

    Implications Posting #5:

    If Earth was once run as a “prison planet” in ancient times, then that would imply that many humans living on Earth experienced something elsewhere—perhaps far away—that resulted in them either fleeing to Earth, or being expelled to Earth. Prison authorities would likely attempt to engage the prison population in activities and belief systems that would sap their energies and suppress their memories of who they are and where they came from. Such activities and beliefs would also prevent a revolt, and subsequent demands for restitution, reparations, and justice.
