Resistance is Victory

In the wake of the blackout and multiple online campaigns and petitions in response to the traitorous SOPA / PIPA legislation introduced in congress to censor the internet,  the congressional cockroaches have decided to retreat… no doubt to eventually try to get this thing through as a rider on something else.  http://www.prisonplanet.com/sopa-co-sponsors-defect-backtrack-after-blackout.html  The authors of the legislation refuse to back down and promise to be back with another version of it… we really need to get rid of  House Judiciary Committee Chairman Rep. Lamar Smith (R-Texas) and Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.)… the bill’s authors.  In this legislation, someone streamlining a Michael Jackson song would be thrown in jail for longer than the doctor that killed Michael Jackson himself. 

Ron Paul, bless his heart, has broken off campaigning for the presidency to work on killing the patently unconstitutional NDAA Indefinite Detention bill that Obummer signed into law, as well as a second law that would allow the government to unilaterally revoke anyone’s citizenship for being an enemy combatant.  Both of these laws completely ignore the rules by which a U.S. citizen can be tried for treason as specified in the Constitution and the Bill of Rights.  http://www.prisonplanet.com/ron-paul-moves-to-kill-indefinite-detention-provision-of-ndaa.html  I’d like to make a point that just because these horrible reptiles have made NDAA a “law” doesn’t make it lawful… every part of NDAA is against the constitution. We don’t have to wait for the Supreme Court to rule on this one. In fact, they’re introducing a bill in New Jersey, using the constitution’s nullification clause.  I called my state senator to urge him to do the same thing.

The people in Montana have launched an recall of their legislators who voted for NDAA.  This article has a nice form letter we can use to invoke recalls of federal officials on two grounds: 1) acts of malfeasance or misfeasance while in office, or 2) violation of the oath of office.  There is no doubt that the people who voted for NDAA have violated their oaths of office, to “support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic.”   The Constitution is the “Supreme Law of the Land” according to the Supremacy Clause, Article VI.  http://www.dailykos.com/story/2012/01/15/1054996/-SOPA-Beaten-Back,-Now-for-NDAA-Military-Detention-of-Americans-To-the-State-Houses  States which presently have federal recall laws are Arizona, Colorado, Louisiana, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington, and Wisconsin.

By all means, take a look at the list of representatives and senators that voted for NDAA and send them each a basic note saying that you are paying attention and then remind them about the constitution and Jefferson’s commentary that the last method by which we will take back our country will involve rounding up the traitors up there on Capitol Hill.  Spell it out! http://www.waitingforthestorm.com/indefinite-detention-law-hall-of-shame-list-of-senators-who-voted-yes-on-the-ndaa-bill  Here’s a list of their Twitter accounts!

Gang, we gotta get Ron Paul elected president… he can unilaterally cancel all of the improper and illegal presidential “executive orders” that have been on the books since before WWII… like the one that’s still standing that says the president has total unilateral wartime control over everything. Ron Paul would get rid of a whole lot of wasteful alphabet agencies, pull the military back, close the 700+ U.S. overseas bases, not to mention launching an investigation as to where exactly Obama was actually born. Can you imagine that?  If Obama can’t prove conclusively that he was indeed born in the U.S. of two U.S. citizens, everything he’s signed into law is rendered null and void!

What I don’t get… here we’ve got a situation in which millions of homeowners are walking away from their homes to allow the banks that created the economic crash and loss of jobs  to take their homes… WTF?  The bankers set it up to crash and we’re letting them have our houses?  What’s happened here? Have we all been lobotomized?  Fraudulent inducement to the loans and theft of the property!  By the time the real estate market hits rock bottom, the banks will have taken over 10 million houses from people in the U.S. alone!  Why?  We need to quit going along with this theft!   Tell the banks and their servers to walk away or be… blown away. 

The more WE THE PEOPLE quit going along with this open, in-your-face tyranny, the less likely the corrupt bankster run congress will try to pull any more of this junk on us!  We must let them know that WE OUTNUMBER THEM and we are aware and educated… and ARMED. Resistance is victory here, particularly when the people trying to use our own armed forces to round us up are so few. All our law enforcement and armed forces have to do is say NO. The more educated among them likely will say NO… after all, they know that once they finish rounding us civilians up, they’ll be the next to go into those concentration camps to die. When America goes down, there are no more free countries to go to. This is it… the big kahuna! 

We can stop these reptilians and do it through peaceful means, just like Gandhi. All we have to do is stop cooperating with these thugs!

Crazy Scams to Be Aware of…

 Dadgummit!  I published this post and it disappeared! So here I go again!

One thing I have become increasingly aware of is the greater variety and packaging of scams.  You have to wrap your head around the fact that if something is too good to be true, it usually is. If something does not match up, you have to question it.

Some months ago I listed an antique chair on Craigslist. I got a series of looky-Lous followed by some guy who said he’d be sending a check that I should cash immediately… there would be extra money for my trouble and the rest should go to the person he would send to pick up the chair.  What arrived was a FedEx overnight envelope with a check for two thousand dollars in it.  Huh?  I noticed that the address on FedEx envelope was from someone on Bee Cave Road out near San Antonio. The check in the envelope was from a company in Florida. Hmmm.  I looked up the company in Florida and spoke to the CFO, who told me that this check was from  a batch that was stolen from a temp worker some two years before and that the account was closed.  Ah hah!  If I had followed through with the scammer’s instrucions, I would have been out both the chair and the entire amount of money that was written on that check.  I ceased communication with the scammer and tried to file a complaint with law enforcement, who couldn’t give a rat’s patootie.   By the way, anything of this nature goes to the CIA, not the FBI, because it has to do with banking and forgery.  Neither agency cares to investigate, anyway… just listen to the response on the other end of the line. Your best strategy is to do a little checking and not participate.

The next scam I more recently was made aware of, nearest I can figure, was more about doing mischief.  I arrived home one evening to find a UPS overnight envelope on my doorstep. The address was from a woman in Washington DC, the phone number was in Wisconsin with only an answering machine attached.  Huh?  I looked for that name in my database and found nothing.  What the envelope contained was… get this… two USPS money orders for $950 each… no instructions, no letter. I held the checks up to the light to discover that the watermark picture of Benjamin Franklin was pretty diffused looking. Realizing that the USPS would know which post office had sold the money orders and which drawer they would have come out of, I finally called the USPS and got someone to look up the money order numbers, which did not match the amounts on the money orders by a long shot.  I was given a report number and told to take the package to the nearest post office. I tried to take this stuff in to their postmaster twice, finally got one old codger to take it off my hands, saying he’d handle it. Four days later, the same darn UPS envelope arrived back in my mailbox, having been taped up by someone there and mailed back to me!  I was trying to help them stop some criminal activity and they didn’t understand!  I gave up.

I am puzzled as to who might think so badly of me as to send me a couple of washed money orders.  If I had either deposited or cashed the money orders or checks,  I would have been held resp0nsible for the money and the money removed from my bank account. 

The thing here… I have friends who are hard-up enough, or naieve enough, that they would have cashed these checks or money orders and then would have been singing the blues for months afterwards. I was glad that I received these scams instead of them; at least I have enough capacity for critical thought to stay out of trouble.

Conservative Halloween Costume

I left the house today to go to the dentist. I wore my new black jeans, a black “Jim Pruitt’s Guns & Ammo” t-shirt, and black sneakers, and of course, carrying my black gun-toting purse.

On the way back from that appointment, I stopped at a Halloween costume place looking for a bat-shaped antenna ball for my vehicles… no dice. I did, however, come to the realization that I was already in costume.  Picture the above outfit as described, perhaps adding a headband with a pair of bear ears, and one of those infant carrying slings that parents attach to themselves, carrying a teddy bear.  What is the costume?  A MAMA-GRIZZLY.  Perhaps one could top the look off with a kids’ plastic rifle.

Ruminations on Japan’s Earthquake…

I’m sure most of the world has learned about Japan’s 9.1 magnitude earthquake and subsequent tsunami and nuclear reactor meltdowns.  It ain’t pretty.  Last I heard, over 88,000 people were reported missing, and over 300,000 people are crowding into shelters. Most of the coastal villages along the northern half of Japan facing the Pacific Ocean were wiped off the map, and shifted the Earth’s axis by 10 cm, and Japan itself was shifted about 8 feet to the west.  They’re still shaking and baking with level 6 aftershocks.  http://edition.cnn.com/2011/WORLD/asiapcf/03/12/japan.earthquake.tsunami.earth/index.html?hpt=T1

Given the population density, it isn’t a stretch that the death toll will go into the hundreds of thousands as is, without a nuclear meltdown. They’re already saying that the cost of the destruction will go into hundreds of billions.  With a nuclear meltdown? Gosh… that will be really horrible, particularly since the jet stream will carry any radioactive fallout across the Pacific and across the United States and beyond.  http://www.infowars.com/media-coverup-of-massive-chernobyl-event-underway-in-japan/  An explosion happened and the reactor cracked open releasing a bunch of white smoke and they are already measuring radiation levels 1,000 times higher than normal.  It already looks like the Japanese government is trying to do a media coverup on this event in an effort to prevent massive hysteria in an area where nobody can travel if they survived the earthquakes and tsunamis; the roads are all ripped up and the trains aren’t running. 

http://www.zerohedge.com/article/boj-raises-liquidity-injection-jpy12-trillion-146-billion  The Nikkei stock exchange is going to be up and running this Monday, and Japan’s central bank is probably going to inject hundreds of billions of dollars into their economy… that’s debt, folks, on top of the tremendous soverign debt they already have.  What’s kept Japan’s economy going for the past decade or so has been the “carry trade” in which brokers have been making money by exchanging one currency for another to buy things. Their sovereign debt was actually financed by the citizenry, who are known “savers”, instead of the central bank simply debasing the currency by printing more and more money.  Japan has forced retirement at age 60 and as a direct result, a large indigent population.

Even before their economic ”lost decade”, it has always been said that when the “big one” hit Japan, that the Japanese people would be cashing out all their holdings in other countries to return to rebuild Japan. I would imagine that would be really bad for the U.S. right now. As big a player in the world economy as Japan is, it just might be the one event that sends the whole global economic ponzi scheme over the precipice. 

Now… several people have already asked me about the origin of this earthquake. Well, we do know that these large events are cosmic in origin. We know that this quake comes on the tail of a “super moon” in which the moon is actually the closest it has been to the earth in close to a hundred years. The moon not only effects tides, but it also pulls at the magma tides inside the earth’s crust. Add to that a lot of sunspot activity, which will certainly aggravate any weather activity (note the flooding in New Jersey).   Mt. Kilaueah in Hawaii and Sakurajima Volcano on the southern tip of Japan each erupted in new and unusual activity. http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/tsunami-nowhere-to-run-videos-waves-hit-japan-hawaii-west-coast-on-alert_03122011  
The point I’ll make is just because the probability for this quake activity was forseeable, that doesn’t make it 100% organic.   We know that HAARP has been used to create quake activity and floods in various areas of the world, including China. It isn’t a long stretch to imagine that someone could take advantage of the cosmic cycle to make their HAARP program work that much better. http://www.infowars.com/piers-corbyn-massive-japan-earthquake-tsunami-were-triggered-by-solar-action/    If so, it amounts to a terrorist attack on Japan.  Piers Corbyn, an astro-meteorologist predicts a lot more like this over the next two years.

Gang… I can recommend some action right now.  First, pray for the people of Japan. Secondly, stock up on food and load up on POTASSIUM IODIDE to protect yourself from the effects of radioactive fallout.  A lot of on-line sources are already selling out. I have a couple of bottles of the 2% atomic nascent iodine coming  http://purebulk.com/atomic-iodine-2-nascent , as well as several vials of  the concentrated Potassium Iodide http://www.ki4u.com/products1.php   that you make up in a liter of water and then dose out.  You need to make sure you are NOT in the least bit deficient in iodine because if your body is missing any of it, it will soak up the radioactive stuff from the atmosphere.

Since it looks like this might be an important event in the world’s economy, if you haven’t already done so, you might want to get out of paper and into metals.

Native American Prophesy and World History

If you get the chance, take a look at his video regarding Native American prophesy about the times we are in:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7cylfQtkDg  there are several parts, so watch all of them. The elders depicted in these films explain things, both in the historical context and in the prophetic context. They speak about how the United States is basically going to die. They speak about how how out of the top 100 “economic units” in the world, 49 are countries and 51 are corporations. That means that corporations are calling the shots.  Today we are living in a fascist corporatocracy… the merger of corporation and state, with the top criminals in Wall Street taking everything they can, plundering all the world, leaving nothing but waste behind.  Look around.  America is in that unsustainable “age of empire” that has collapsed every other empire we’ve ever seen… including the Roman Empire, British Empire, French Empire and Nazi Germany.  We’re already in two war arenas, and our military isn’t doing well.  The U.S. is billions and billions in the hole, and most of that money is going to special corporate interests. War is a racket, and the racketeers are in charge.  The corporate news media is flogging the upcoming probable war with Iran, which has just been equipped with nuclear power and weapons by the Russians. If we, or Israel, messes with Iran, it is going to be bad.  Other markers for this time period include a very probable staged terror event.

We’ve got a short amount of time to get ourselves situated right.

A few people have looked at me like I was crazy when I told them what was coming up in the next few months. Some in the new age community have told me that you manifest what you focus on. Okay… so I have empowered myself to get my ducks in order so I cannot be blindsided by the coming probable economic melt-down.  I’ve been loading up on storable foods, I yanked my money out of the bank and stock market, I’ve invested in metals… and I started a garden.  With that kind of groundwork done, I have handled my preparations for the future as best I can, and I can focus on manifesting whatever I want from a place of security without the distraction of being worried.  Empower yourself to do what you can to get your house in order to lessen the potential for real hardship as you can.  The last thing you want to do is rely on the government to help you… remember Katrina? How about the BP oil spill?  Nope, you’re on your own if you want to survive and even flourish… and that will take some preparation.

Remember the story about the grasshopper and the ant?  The ant worked hard to prepare for the winter while the grasshopper played all summer and then died when winter set in.  This economic winter is gonna be a bitch. People are going to die. There will be riots. Like Gerald Celente says, “when people have lost everything and they have nothing left to lose, that is when they lose it.”

The government is actively doing its best to destroy America. All the laws that prevented total corporate takeover have been removed… the anti-trust acts, Glass-Steagall, the regulations that kept consumer banks apart from investment banking… all of it has been dismantled. Remember back in the 1970s  and 1980s when we had the big savings and loan scandal and the government had to bail out and then investigate thousands of savings & loans nation wide?  Over 5,000 crooked bankers were sent to prison!  Now the rules are gone, the accounting guidelines have been rewritten, and the people who used to investigate, aren’t investigating.  The big-wigs at Goldman Sachs, AIG, Citibank, and the dozen or so others who crashed the market back in 2007/2008 with their derivatives should really be in prison. 

Remember back in the 1970s… after Nixon took us off the last vestiges of the gold standard, it took 2 years for the inflation to hit. The Federal Reserve printed only 13% more money per year over those 2 years, and it translated to a 12% inflation rate. The Fed did a correction by raising the interest rate to 20% to suck the excess money out of the system. The other big difference… we still had our manufacturing base because we hadn’t shipped our jobs overseas. Most of us did pretty well in spite of the high interest, and personally, I was too young/broke at the time to be noticed by Carter’s tax mafia… or Clinton’s for that matter.

Given that it takes 2 years for inflation to hit after they decide to print lots of money… 2008 was when Bush’s TARP bailouts started, followed by all of Obama’s bailouts… he even sent $300 Billion to bail out Greece!   Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have $5 TRILLION exposure to the mortgage market, so technically the government is the primary landowner. Bush, Obama and the Fed have increased the money supply some 120% and there is now some $105 TRILLION in government debt, and most of it has gone to big-wig criminals that created the very same set of crises to begin with.  That is an ungodly amount of currency.  The inflation will likely be hitting this fall… 2 years after the TARP bailout started the ball rolling. We have no idea how high the inflation rate will be, but given the enormity of the situation, it’s likely to be a booger-bear.

We have been looted and now we are being stuck with the bill. People aren’t gonna stand for that, especially when the few that still have jobs and medical benefits see that their premiums have gone up and the insurance coverage they get from their jobs is being taxed as income.  I predict massive tax protests. I can also predict that a lot of people are going to quit filing tax returns to fund this nonsense. 

The mid-term elections coming up?  Bah!  Even if nothing but Tea Party type candidates win in this election, that still leaves all the lame ducks in control through January… and with nothing to lose, they will do everything they can to further their crooked agenda in those 3 months.

The Weimar Republic collapsed one currency, paying off their war debt in debased currency,  then created a new currency backed by the one thing they had:  land.  They still couldn’t make an economic recovery, since in the treaty of WWI, the forces for appeasement gave away Germany’s breadbasket, the Sudetenland. When the rest of the world was whooping it up during the roaring 20′s, Germany couldn’t feed itself.  It wasn’t long after that when a twerp named Hitler came to power, promising “change”.  Having learned the lessons of history,  German Chancellor Merkel decided not to debase the German economy, but rather to make it possible to actually make money by not doing a bunch of bailouts and “stimulus”… and they’ve now got a nearly 9 percent GROWTH rate as a result.   http://www.nytimes.com/2010/08/14/world/europe/14germany.html?_r=2&scp=7&sq=german%20economy&st=cse

If the Fed decided to rein it all in this time, how the heck would they do it?  I don’t think they can and I really don’t think they intend to. They will most likely continue to print all the money they can until the whole house of cards collapses. They will pay the debts with debased currency, then they will restart the economy with a new currency that is backed by something else.  But what?  We won’t be allowed to back our currency with OPEC oil any more. We’ve still got oil & gas, lots of real estate (land), minerals of all sorts… of course Obama’s doing his best to stop all of that from being developed.  Even if they do have a new currency waiting in the wings (Amero, anyone?) it may not be readily accepted.  When they do introduce the new currency, you probably won’t get much in trade for the dollars you’re holding in the bank and stock market now. You might as well beat them to it.

Will a currency changeover be orderly?  I kinda doubt it.  Obama’s criminal wild bunch have already legislated a bunch of currency controls to keep us from being able to access our money.  When the dollar collapses and the hyperinflation hits, there will likely be a protracted “bank holiday”  preventing us from having access to our money, and the money will likely have very little value when you can access it.  Can you imagine spending your whole paycheck for a loaf of bread?  Yeah… that bad.  

Can you and your family live on the food, cash and trading goods you have in your house for say… 3 months?  How about longer?  While you have the chance, start buying food before the prices go up.  The grocery stores have to raise the prices on the new, more expensive inventory as they bring it in to replace the old inventory that is being bought up. Buy that $1 can of beans now… don’t wait unti it is $2.50.  Load up on closeouts.  Make sure you have seasonings to make it taste good.  Stock up on what you would want to eat if you got stuck at home for some weeks. You don’t wanna be stuck in a breadline at a FEMA camp.

Retards are Running Things…

The date is August 4, 2011.

Silver rallied to almost $42 after congress passed their ponzi scheme debt ceiling, and briefly got down to the low $30 range, and is now just over $39.  So the bullion banks managed to step on the price of physical silver by printing their paper silver… for now. The Dow went from 12,100 to 11, 383 in the last couple of days. Conscious people are bailing out of the dollar as soon as they can.

Congress is full of panhandlers, drooling idiots and crooks. Nobody will deny that. Even our beloved Ron Paul has had to play the game to keep getting elected… and he is still being marginalized.

I can also attest to the  fact that the local beaurocracy is also completely out of control and staffed by complete retards. My friend Uilani moved here from Santa Fe, NM. Found she couldn’t find work without a Texas Drivers License. She got her car reinspected, relicensed, restickered, and made sure her insurance card matched her new digs.  The DPS would not accept her past drivers licenses for NM and FL, wouldn’t accept her official state birth certificate or her passport!  The idiot behind the counter demanded to see her original HOSPITAL BIRTH CERTIFICATE!  Nobody accepts a hospital birth certificate as a legitimate document to begin with!   They won’t accept it to get a passport, and the passport is one of the most zealously regulated things to have to get!  And this DPS twit wouldn’t accept it?!!

My friend is 70 years old for pete’s sake! 

After 4 days of trying, going back and forth and wasting time in line, the idiot behind the counter finally accepted… now get this… a greeting card from the hospital that said, “Congratulations on the birth of your bouncing baby girl!”  Huh?  They accepted a time-worn, stained greeting card signed by some nurse and NOT an official state birth certificate or a passport?  Jeeeezus!  What happens if you are one of those people who were born in odd circumstances and do not possess a hospital birth certificate?  What if you were born in your grandma’s living room, or a taxi cab, or an elevator… or Disneyland?  Does that mean you can’t get a dadburn driver’s license?

Now… she’s trying to get all her social security and medicare stuff transferred and updated. Initially she had to deal with some illiterate numbskull that didn’t understand English, that wrote some oddball narrative for my friend to sign… it read like an insane person had written it, had all sorts of junk about bringing food with her from New Mexico, and living with a girlfriend who supports her. None of this had anything to do with the issues at hand. After that, she finally got someone whose primary language was English and that one was trying to sell her into SSI, medicaid, and all other sorts of stuff… and it says in the small print that they will take ALL of your assets.  Uh, no… she called them on it, saying that she wanted to get a job.  The beaurocrat gasped and backed off; apparently they’re not used to being turned down.

If you read the small print on all these government programs, you will notice that they offer stiff penalties for lying to them, and claim that they have the right to take any assets you may have. They want to know everything you own, including your car, any bank accounts… any property whatsoever.  Go on the web and download their forms and see for yourself.  As things go downhill, they will get increasingly grabby… it all amounts to bait. You take the bait to get onto the programs, and they take you for everything you’ve got before leaving you high and dry.  Trying to learn the ins and outs of these programs is a waste of time because they won’t exist very much longer. The people dependent on the government for support are going to starve to death as the inflation kicks in.

Beat them to your pension…

For those of you who are paying into state pension funds in hopes of retiring, or are about to retire, or have retired, you need to be aware of a few things: 

There is a bill working its way through Congress that will allow states to file bankruptcy… repeat… states will be allowed to file bankruptcy.  This is being championed by Newt Gingrich, who is one slimey little turtle of a career liar.

What does this mean?  It means you need to take decisive action on your own behalf right now.  The states that are in deep financial trouble now are looking for a way out. They’ve already plundered the pension funds and they want to be absolved of the responsibility for that theft.  Walker of Wisconsin is doing his best to break unions’ bargaining rights, California is laying off tens of thousands of school teachers, Pennsylvania is laying off teachers even as they strike.   Gov. Walker has legislation on the way that will allow him to sell off state owned resources to any company, without bidding, as long as it seems like a good deal for the state… read: a massive give-away program for insiders at taxpayer expense.  This is all across the country. States, counties and cities are paring down police forces and vital services. 

If you want to keep the money you have in your state pension fund, you need to beat the state to it… NOW.   Cash it out, pay the taxes and buy metals.

Do I know anyone else who has done this?  Yes… I have a buddy that saw the trends and cashed out his entire pension fund in favor of gold while it was under $500 an ounce… this decision alone has not only preserved the value of his money, given that shortly afterward the stock market plunged, but has increased the value of his investment. This is the very best of listening to your higher guidance.

I took my 401K out and bought various survival gear and a LOT of silver and gold. That was back when silver was $21 an ounce. Every time I have a little  money left after paying bills, I buy more silver. This is how you will preserve your wealth.

If you are looking at the stock market making gains… just remember, it is all on digital paper. The only reason the stock market is showing gains is because of inflation. The banksters are lulling people into staying in the market… and they’ll take your money from you. The whole thing is a ponzi scheme.

Real Patriots Maintain Cash and Silver

I’d like to point out a few little things:

The Eurozone is in deep trouble. Cypress is asking for bailouts now, on top of Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal.  Mind you, the “bailouts” are all going dicrectly to the banks that have been using depositors’ money to speculate with… so the banker-appointed technocrats who are placed in charge of these governments to administrate their economies are making sure that the governments receive the money from the ECB, IMF and BIS (the Troika) to turn over to the banks… at taxpayer expense. The banks then leverage this money at least 10X to do even more speculating.  Spain’s banks need probably a hundred billion dollars to keep going… at least they were up-front about it this time and the money went directly to their banks instead of getting filtered through their government. People all over the Eurozone are pulling their money out of their bank accounts because they expect banking collapse, and banks are limiting amounts of withdrawals. One big bank in Italy recently closed their doors without bothering to inform depositors… not giving them a chance to redirect their paycheck direct deposits… just keeping their money away from them. Governments all over are seeking to institute capital controls.  If you are looking at what is going on in Europe and not preparing for it to show up here, you are going to lose it all. It is already very apparent that governments, including the U.S. government, does not want people to maintain or use cash.  Highway checkpoints and TSA are actively confiscating cash.
http://www.realecontv.com/videos/government-corruption/the-govt-doesnt-want-you-to-have-cash.html
Common sense dictates that you do the exact opposite of what the government wants you to do.    So, for your own survival, you should own guns and stockpile ammo, you should stockpile food, and you should keep as little money as possible in your bank account and all you can in cash and precious metals.

Europeans have endured so many currency collapses and resets, that they know what is coming. They’ve already seen their manufacturing outsourced, and their banks have imposed “austerity measures” on the people by twisting government bureaucrats’ arms for bailouts.  The fake debt foisted onto countries’ books is some 25 times the world GDP already… it can never be paid back. In Greece, the ecomony has collapsed altogether, forcing people to barter for all goods and services, eschewing the normal retail outlets… they call it “System D”. Breadlines are all over.  People all over Europe are hiding income in order to not pay taxes… I don’t blame them.

Please bear in mind that the last time Europe’s stock markets collapsed, the American stock market followed suit a couple of weeks thereafter. Given how everything is digital these days, it may be a lot shorter time before the collapse in Europe is echoed over here.

Cash.   http://www.theundergroundinvestor.com/2012/06/the-criminal-banking-cartels-end-game-a-100-digital-monetary-system/  If you really want to give the banksters hell, by all means keep as little money in your bank account as is practiceable… just enough to cover monthly bills… and the rest in cash. Stop allowing the banksters to track your purchasing via credit/debit cards… use cash instead.  They don’t like it.  This is a great way to train yourself  in estimating your true needs. Get used to it, because we’re going back to it. Forget plastic.

Please bear in mind that the bankster cartel plans for us a one-world digital currency and no way to use cash.  When they decide to close our financial system for devaluation, you will need your cash to pay basic bills until the banks open once again. A month or two’s worth should suffice to cover you.  When they finally roll out their digital currency (at a huge loss in value to us), you should have already long since gotten the majority of your wealth into precious metals and other tangibles… like farm land, food storage, tools and what-not.

Silver is the really big thing to consider.  Great educational resources include:  http://sgtreport.com/   and http://www.zerohedge.com/
You see… silver is an easily manipulated commodity. The top big banks are stepping on the SPOT PRICE every time it goes up, because it sustains the belief that silver and gold are too volatile to invest in.  The problem for the banks is that we know how they’ve been manipulating the spot price by printing and selling paper silver on the commodities exchanges.  
http://www.nypost.com/p/news/business/jpmorgan_trading_loss_could_hit_ifUcDYuDG2sJVXGIJCBkDM JPMorgan’s Achilles’ heel is silver because of their naked paper shorts, which they will never be able to cover… and it is already blowing up in their face because they currently report some $6 billion in bad debts on their books, and their total derivatives/shorts exposure is already well past the world’s combined GDP of some $60-$65 trillion… that’s just one bank. Add that up across the system and understand that the exchange traded fund SLV is managed by these same banksters… meaning most of what the fund is comprised of is PAPER SILVER.  Get that?  SLV and GLD are scams.

Why silver?  If you understand the fundamentals, you will see that this is the LAST chance to make your money make money for you before the money ceases to be worth anything at all.  Estimated silver production was about 735.9 million ounces a year… and that number is falling.  Actual production could be in the 250 million ounce range. Some 80% of silver production goes directly for industrial applications. In other words, snap it up while you can. Buy your silver early and often.

Taking physical silver off the market right now does several things:  it is a real store of wealth and the last opportunity for you to make some money in this economy, and it also removes the banksters from determining your fate.  You have to get on it fast, though, because physical inventories are drying up now… I am observing this at my local silver merchants here in Houston and on-line.  The banksters may be able to step on the spot price of silver down to $5 an ounce, but you won’t be able to find it ANYWHERE at that price. That will be the official decoupling of the physical from the paper market.  Buy the dips while you can… silver and gold are dipping like all get-out. 

Bear in mind that when people flocked to physical silver and gold was at the bottom of the Great Depression. What the government did back then was beg people to turn in their physical gold from people in return for a silver certificate valued at $28 (or something like that) and then reintroduced the physical gold at $35… which was a 40% currency devaluation while still being on the gold standard.  They plan on something similar again. It may be in association with a normal holiday weekend, or they may decide to have a prolonged bank holiday.

A little planning will stop you from being caught short and enable you to continue to feed your family during the coming transition phase.

We Must Elect Ron Paul!

Earlier this evening I created a post and (I think) published it. I noticed that my mouse wasn’t working on WordPress while composing it.  Then when I looked at the post, it simply wasn’t there, except for the tags and title. Huh?!!  Let’s see if this one goes through!

Okay… it is January 2, 2012
If there was ever reason to vote for Ron Paul… you have it now. Congress has betrayed us every which way. They are trying to install an internet kill switch and enact Chinese-style internet censorship. The Federal Reserve has given more trillions of dollars to mostly foreign banks to keep the European Union afloat, and that money ultimately comes out of our pockets WITH interest.

Obama just signed the National Defense Authorization Act with some meaningless signing statement. Basically, this gives his regime the right to round up anyone, foreign or domestic, and make them disappear… no habeas corpus, no probable cause, no nothing. If you get a chance, check this article, which also contains links to the actual text of NDAA. http://www.prisonplanet.com/myth-busted-yes-the-ndaa-does-apply-to-americans-and-heres-the-text-that-says-so.html  Basically, there are no protections for Americans.  With this, they can reenact Stalin’s purges in which that “late night knock on the door” resulted in one or more members of your household getting hauled off never to be seen again. Millions more disappeared during Stalin’s regime than died during World War II.

We are already considered enemy combatants.  The American military is actively training to take on American citizenry… the good thins is once they see the American styled clothing on the practice dummies, the soldiers start asking questions… and once they start asking questions, they are told to leave the base!  Hooray for Oathkeepers!  I just hope that awareness applies across the entire military and when the rubber hits the road, they all either take up arms against the banksters pulling the strings, or simply stand down. They should realize that after they’ve been used as tools to round up the rest of us, they’ll be the next to go into the gas chambers. Besides that, the excuse ”we were just following orders” didn’t work at the Nuremburg trials, and it won’t work here, either.

Bush and Obama will certainly go down in historical infamy as bringing in the American police state. http://www.prisonplanet.com/obamas-america-tyranny-and-permanent-war.html   You see, the elites… the banksters… are very afraid because humanity is waking up… and waking up angry.  The elitists may be controlling the riots in the Middle East for the time being through MI6 and the CIA, but at some point that won’t work any more.  The elitists that talk to Pastor Lindsey Williams have made it absolutely clear what they are planning, and even they are scared at how extreme it really is coming down. When a regime ramps up the totalitarianism and cuts back on basic liberties, we know they are scared.  They write laws to give themselves the authority to do whatever they want, often after the fact.  They’re doing the big push now. They know we will push back… after all, we outnumber them!

If you have any doubt about what the elitists have planned for us… take a look at this series of murals in a Bank of America:  http://www.prisonplanet.com/analysis-of-the-occult-symbols-found-on-the-bank-of-america-murals.html  Seriously look at the middle mural.  The elites always advertise their intentions before they put their plans into action. Their stated intentions are to completely bury the world in so much debt so that the banksters will own everything. They will round people up and put them into prisoner camps… FEMA already has 800 of them ready to go, each capable of holding 5,000 prisoners, and from their construction you can see that nobody will get out once they go in.

How do we know the elites are scared?  Heh!  Take a look at how hard they’re working to marginalize and then demonize Ron Paul!

We’re in very historic times. This is the turning point. This timeframe compares to a combination of both Weimar Germany’s currency/economic meltdown combined with Nazi Germany’s police state, and if they manage to pull it off, billions of people will die horribly.  We simply must get Ron Paul and other constitutionalists like him elected… period. Citizen Ron will get rid of the debt socialized onto us by the banksters (it was never ours to begin with), will audit and then extract the banksters from the Federal Reserve (we can do very well with a fiat currency as long as we’re not paying interest on it to some bankers), and will withdraw our military and close bases all over the world, stop all foreign aid (all it ever did was prop up totalitarian regimes anyway), get rid of a bunch of alphabet agencies, return us to the American economic model and reinstate FREEDOM and personal responsibility. 

The American economic model was simple:  allow people the freedom to invent and create and prosper from their labors, while protecting our manufacturing base with tariffs against crappy foreign-produced goods.  It worked spectacularly well for a couple of hundred years.  We can get that back through a series of incentives and taxes/tariffs. Right now we’re suffering the effects of the British economic model… which is basically about buying raw materials dirt low in one place, denying that base the labor income by having another country do the labor dirt cheap, then sell the goods very dearly, and buying something else cheap in that country and taking it to another part of the world to repeat the pattern. A good example was the British trading companies buying American cotton from the plantations, having the plantation slaves weave a basic fabric from it on the cheap, selling that cotton fabric expensively in India (denying their consuming market the chance to make a better fabric from the raw materials), then buying opium (cheap) and taking that to China, lacing the tea with it and getting the population addicted to it while raising the prices for the addicts.  Anyone remember the Opium Wars?  Yeah, that’s all globalism at its classic nastiest. We’re seeing that playing out now.

We need Ron Paul. This is our last chance to turn the tide and reclaim America peacefully. Returning to our constitutional roots is the only way to do this.  If we can’t change things through legitimate discourse, we will have to enter into a second American Revolution.

Making the Best of a Bad Dowsing Conference

Awww man… I gotta say that last year’s Lone Star Dowsers regional dowsing conference didn’t meet expectations… not in the least. Apparently the local group left it all in the hands of two entrenched, cranky old women who had no real idea how to pull it off.  I’ll estimate that the total attendance was perhaps 3 dozen. The organization is out the rent on three small hotel ballrooms that were put together for the conference. My guess is that the vendors’ table fees may have covered the ballroom rental for the first day, but not for all four days. They really went in the hole.

 There was no sound system to amplify the voices of the speakers, so that anyone speaking in a very soft tone in the very back of the room (where the vendors were) was apparently heard all the way at the front of the room where the speakers stood.  A simple cheapo karaoke machine with a couple of add-on satellite speakers would have made all the difference in the world. Turns out they had a small PA system (in the trunk of a car, no less), but couldn’t find the microphone to it. All this woman had to do was hit the local music shop or Best Buy to pick up a replacement microphone (probably less than $20).  That would have saved a lot of irritation throughout the conference.

They did get one ad in the Centerpoint Project newsletter and the Indigo Sun, but those didn’t hit the racks/mailboxes until the first week of the month… and the conference didn’t start until the second week… only one week to be seen. They needed to have those ads out for at least two monthly issues ahead of the conference. There were no press releases. They e-mailed a flyer out and asked everyone at the monthly meetings to bring a friend. No direct mail like the Dallas dowsing club does when they do the conference every other year. Actually, I get the mail-outs from dowsing associations throughout the country. Last week I got one from the Arizona group announcing their conference. In a word, the promotion was not mis-handled so much as it wasn’t handled at all. Pitiful.

Okay, so I tagged one of the organizers and told her… “Hey, I’ve got 30 years in advertising, marketing, public relations, trade shows, graphics and printing… next time, please CALL ME! Let me help!”

Later on, I e-mailed and offered to create an Excel database list of membership that could be used to do quarterly mailings. In a word, I am volunteering to correct the problems and help save that chapter.

ON THE FLIP SIDE…

The lack of traffic allowed us vendors to get to know each other. We have connected and are making plans to do our own events. I will probably be building some websites for others, and we are all networking and swapping knowledge. We are planning on pushing for some changes in the local organization, and failing that, will probably plan to create our own dowsing association chapter. In other words, I’ll be making man times the money long term that I should have made at that conference.

WalMart and Obits as Harbingers

This new article from the National Inflation Association  http://inflation.us/artificialeconomy.html got me to thinking. It starts out talking about Japan and China and their currencies, and how the Chinese workers are getting to the point of refusing to work 7 long days a week for miniscule slave wages… and they’re striking! 

Then the article goes on to talk about one of China’s biggest retailers here in the U.S., WalMart, which has ceased doing their “rollbacks” on grocery items and has actually been jacking up prices by 51-66%.  Another friend reported that her HEB grocery store out near Austin has been jacking up prices like all get-out.  The upshot of that is, putting it simply, that price inflation is finally hitting. It will be slow at first, but as the old inventory is sold off, it is being replaced by the new inventory at much higher inflated prices.

NOW is the time to be shopping the sales, snatching up the older inventory while you can at the old prices or at sale prices. I picked up some organic canned goods for $0.50 to $1.00 a can and Tom’s of Maine fluoride-free toothpaste for $2.50 a tube at Big Lots. I went to pick up some potting soil at the local garden center, and I also bought a bunch of seeds for 1/2 price.   By all means, hit Costco to stock up on good bulk foods… powdered milk, beans, rice, spices, quinoa, cereals, nuts, canned goods… you name it.  The deals are still out there, so please make use of them.  This may be the last chance to load up  before inflation makes your paycheck worthless. 

In the midst of discussing these things with friends, one friend, as part of her job, has to peruse the obituaries. She reports that the obituary pages have increased, from one page or less to two or three pages on the weekdays and more on the weekends. She cites that the last time she saw this pattern was just before and after 9-11-2001.  She also states that the real number of deaths are perhaps 2 or 3 times that of the obits since the obits cost money for the family to publish. What that boils down to is a lot of people leaving the Earth because they “didn’t sign up for the coming rough times”.  Not everyone that is on the earth is necessarily on the “earth mission”.  This may also explain why I haven’t been able to get through to some friends and family that  they need to be getting their assets under their personal control and stocking up on food/water/silver/gold/survival equipment.  Perhaps they plan on leaving with everyone else that might be dying when the hard times hit?  We know that some 17 million people died (damn near 1/7 of the population) of starvation during the Great Depression, and that was with the currency backed by gold AND 90% of everyone in the U.S. living on farms.  Now, those numbers are inverted with only 10% living on farms and maybe half of them self-sufficient. I’m still worried for these folks, but at some point, I have to let go and allow them to make their own decisions as adults.

Gang… all the signals are out there if you just unplug from the boob-tube and see them. We’ve been given fair notice. We know that the currency will do a melt-down at some point, given that the government has been racking up a couple of trillion dollars of debt each year for several years, and Obummer is planning on more “stimulus spending”. Given that big business owns our government outright and the cabal of private bankers called the Federal Reserve are now buying the T-bills that China refuses to buy any more… that way the Fed is making interest on the worthless paper money they’re printing AND on the T-bills they’re buying with the same worthless paper. We know that the richest people are going to get even richer and Obama’s gonna fiddle while the American empire burns. We know that the cleptocratic corporatocracy that is our government, aided by the mainstream media, is doing their best to convince the American public that they don’t have anything to worry about… and in so doing are setting a lot of people up for starvation.

Historically speaking, when they’ve exhausted their options, they typically take us to war.  The mainstream media has been beating the war drums for a while now. Several predictors are saying that there will probably be another leg of war breaking out, this time with Iran (backed and equipped by the Russians), and a very probable staged terror strike to remove the last of our civil liberties.  When our government gets done, America is going to be rolled back to the police state of the Soviets, with most people working for the goverment to spy on the rest, and a black market the only means to acquire the necessities.  It may take some months before a black market comes together in the aftermath of a hyperinflation melt-down.  Are you equipped to tough it out for that long?

If you go to church, talk to the pastor and make sure he talks to the congregation at length about preparing in advance by storing ”every needful thing” to protect themselves.  The time for this prep work is running short.  Price inflation is hitting now. We may not see the BIG inflation hit until first quarter of next year, but things will start getting really interesting this last quarter of 2010. 

Me? Gosh, I’m trying.  I’m not just pulling things together for me and my husband, but also to make sure my little old momma is covered.

“The Mama” as the Ultimate Authority

Over the years I’ve run into many situations where a mother has one or more indigo children who are inadvertently tracking in ghosts. Several here in Houston, one out near San Antonio, another in California, and the latest I’ve spoken to is out in Montana. In each instance, the mother is frightened out of her wits because the children have either seen, are being harassed by, or are actively playing with ghosts… sometimes all of the above.

In each case, they found me on the web asking for help. Each was fed up with the situation after having to spend night after night with both parents and the kids huddled in a mass in one room because everyone was so scared of a friggin’ poltergeist. Some tried hiring various outsiders to come in and deal with the situation, often with less than useful results. A lady in California offered to fly me out there to handle the situation for her.

In each case, I tuned in to see what was at the basis of the matter, then went into coaching mode to empower the lady in question so that she could take control of the situation rather than the situation controlling her.

I coach them through the smudging technique and tobacco ceremony, then e-mail them the Johrei “white light” symbol so they can print it out and grid the house with it. The main thing is to get them out of fear and into stepping into their true power as “The Mama”. 

Truth is, The Mama is the ultimate authority in any household… she holds both the temporal and spiritual power. The Mama is the Goddess incarnate in the form of a human. She brings new life into the house and nurtures it, turns a house into a home, uses her own alchemy to turn bags of groceries into healthy meals, and she is the glue that holds the family together. Nobody outranks the fully-empowered mama. What The Mama lacks in brute strength, she makes up for in tenacity and force of will. If The Mama ain’t happy, then nobody is happy.

Men are intimidated by the power of The Mama… that is why they so often seek to control and abuse the mama, or joke about PMS and stuff like that. Most of the world’s major religions seek to keep The Mama hobbled and enslaved because of her innate power. Kings, prime ministers and presidents come and go, but The Mama rules forever. Every ghost and alien knows this and seeks to exploit any gap in The Mama’s knowledge base.

When The Mama abdicates her power and responsibility, it is usually because of pure ignorance of her power and usually because of a lot of crappy religious programming keeping her from assuming her power. That is a pitiful situation because it puts her and her family at risk.  She cannot allow her authority to be undermined by a two-bit preacher, the mass media, “society” or anything else.

The role of The Mama isn’t strictly about making babies. Look around… there are plenty of breeders out there cranking out little squawkers and letting them run rampant at the local WalMart. Most of the problems we have in our society are because of these breeders cranking out the kids and leaving them to a school system to raise without the ability to impart ethics, morals, spirituality, discipline or even the ability to think straight. Taking the kids to church for weekly programming doesn’t help if the values in the household are not in sync with those teachings… and quite frankly very few are because the standards are so diffuse and open to interpretation. These breeders allow petite tyrant administrators put their kids on psychiatric drugs rather than try to get to the basis of their kids’ problems. These breeders are invariably dismayed when their kids turn up with drug addictions, disciplinary problems, and teen pregnancies. 

The Mama is the glue that keeps a family together and teaches the kids the essential knowledge they need to live properly and consciously. If there is abuse in the household, it falls to The Mama to make the hard choices to either take the kids and leave, or extract the abuser from the household. The Mama’s choices have long-term ramifications that last for generations.

When The Mama is in fear, the whole household loses its glue and the stress that imparts to the family is horrific. When The Mama stands up and faces down the threat, like a mama-bear ready to shred any predator, the household and family stands strong.

This one lady with 4 indigo children in west Texas had moved into a house that was haunted. It took a while for that fact to sink in. The kids noticed it first and would go running to their mother for support. It took a while longer for the mother to understand exactly what was going on. In fact, she had to see and feel the poltergeist activity first-hand before it dawned on her that the kids weren’t just being fanciful. She would come home from dropping the kids off at school to find groupings of pretzel sticks spelling out words on the front porch… and the house had been locked up solid. The only bag of pretzel sticks was unopened in the cabinet… but lighter than it should have been. This mother would feel unseen presences getting on top of her when she went to bed… and the list went on. The father did a lot of traveling, and wasn’t up to dealing with poltergeists when he did arrive home. Needless to say, all six of them huddled downstairs in the living room night after night didn’t make it a restful household. I spent several hours talking to the lady on the phone. I walked her through things and she took control. It went from an environment of total terror to her coaching the kids to tell the local ghost (the kids finally named him Bob) that they didn’t want to play with him today. When she understood that his spook had no power that they hadn’t given the ghost themselves, and took a stand, they got downright blasé about it all. They eventually moved out of that rental house into one that better served their needs.

 The lady in Montana described her situation. She has what I deduced to be a couple of indigo children, which is to say they are very old souls with heightened psychic abilities, but also a case of amnesia about where they came from. The lady told me that her 6 year old daughter plays with a ghost she named Blue. Her gothy 16 year old daughter brought in a very scary male ghost with an updated version of a Ouija Board. This ghost fairly turns the house upside down most nights, to the point where the two daughters come running into their parents’ room looking for protection, and of course tracking the ghosts in with them. The mother was ignorant as to what to do. At one point, she threw out her entire collection of metaphysical books and all related paraphernalia, went to church, got “saved” and baptized, and STILL not only had the ghost problem but was being judged and insulted by ignorant members of the congregation. I told the lady that she probably threw out the very books that probably could have told her how to deal with the problem. I talked her down from some of the fear and sent her to my blogsite to search for some of my instructional entries on how to handle different paranormal situations, while I e-mailed her the Johrei “white light” symbol to print out and post all over the house. I expect to hear back from her soon.

When I can coach a cowering woman into standing in her power as The Mama, it is a thing of beauty.

How to Get Rid of a TransDimensional

I was recently asked, “How do you deal with a globby-looking ghost?” 

       I reckon it is “the times” we are in.  In the past 3 weeks I have talked 3 different people through the process of getting rid of transdimensional aliens (TDs).  They’re more common than you think.  Stuart Wilde has been writing about the on his website for years, and his assessments and techniques have been holding up under scrutiny.  About every other request for assistance in dealing with paranormal phenomena is because of TDs.

 You have an entity hanging out in your house… how do you tell what it is? 

       Ghosts are stupid.  They are bits of consciousness left behind by humans who have died.  Some know they have died and some don’t.  Tell-tale signs include the standard cold spots or cold rooms that cannot be accounted for by weather or air-conditioning.  Ghosts typically will not make themselves scarce when you bring in paranormal investigators, if anything, they will come out to play.  You can walk a ghost into the Light.  You can easily use a whole string of subtle energy tools to either make them uncomfortable or to convince them to go into the Light.  A ghost will dirty up your electrical field and eventually get you sick because your immune and nervous system cannot handle that kind of stress. Ghosts are usually easy to get rid of by doing Ceremony to anchor divine Light to the place so they don’t want to hang around.  Ghosts will also clear off if you install a labyrinth on the property, or smudge a room with cedar/sage.

       TDs are IN PHYSICAL, they are not dead and are not ghosts.  They are aliens, but they are on a higher dimensional frequency, so they are often mistaken for ghosts or demons because they often look diaphanous.  You will typically know them because they are absolutely attracted to people who either wallow in or project a lot of negative emotions… fear, anger, hatred, envy, or the victim mentality.  They will typically make themselves scarce if you bring in paranormal investigators, because they don’t want to be found out.  In several instances, the aliens actually parked a whole space ship overlaying the same space as a house, so that the living room of the house might be the sleeping quarters, or the house’s bedroom might be in engineering.  TDs will hang out and pester Lightworkers who are not 100% up-and-running, or indigo / crystal children (the very advanced psychic kids that are coming in these days), attempting to stall their development.  They can implant, kidnap, or can simply sap a person’s energy and leave them feeling listless.  The TDs’ usual thing is to talk deep into your mind and give you nasty ideas in such a way that you think the ideas are yours.  They really like to jack with you in your sleep.  If you’ve ever wondered why people will offer you help and support one day and then they’re mad at you the next day, then the TDs are probably working on that person.  Several people I’ve talked to said that the TDs tried to convince them that they were spirit guides or angels.  You’ll know the difference by how you feel when they’re around… they usually sap your energy and fill you with dread and fear.  

       According to Stuart Wilde, if you are under attack by TDs, the way to break their grip is to cross your eyes and get busy manifesting the Gold Light “Cosmic Condom”.  Yoga makes one vulnerable to their attacks, especially women, because the postures leave the root chakra open to invasion.  Most people see these in their threshold form as a globby-looking nasty yellowish orb that usually floats at about waist level, and hardly ever higher than shoulder level.  People that can see past that level of perception will see a very tall, scary skeleton-like ghoul.  According to Wilde, the TDs are actually controlling the Bush regime, Britain’s royal family, and most of the industrial-military complex… but worry not, they’re all on their way out.  The TDs are basically the forces of darkness made manifest. None of the TDs are nice, at least, not the ones we’re talking about here anyway.  The good ones tend to stand guard duty, chase the bad ones off, and generally try to keep from interfering with us earthlings, they want us to make our own decisions as to whether we’re working for the Light or not. 

 Okay, so how do you get rid of the TDs? 

      The first thing you have to do is wrap your head around the concept that they are in physical and start regarding them as punk vandals and vagrants that have moved into your house without your permission.  They don’t like for you to know they are in physical, because they figure they can hang out and jack with you longer if you think they are ghosts.  They are underhanded and like to play cat-and-mouse games. 

       You also have to get completely out of fear as they FEED on it.  If they think they have you scared, you will never shake them off.  I know one woman in Beaumont that wouldn’t get out of fear, and wouldn’t get out of the victim mentality, and the aliens that parked their ship over her house followed her to an apartment after she sold her house in an effort to get away from them.  The TDs wouldn’t let her get any sleep, and the sleep deprivation made her so out of it that she had a raging urogenital infection and didn’t have enough sense to go to a doctor… she thought she was being raped 24/7 by the TDs.  They’re still following her… across the country… and both her mental and physical health are failing. 

       Empower yourself.  Start by putting on the ol’ “cosmic condom”.  Bring in God’s metallic Gold Light into your body through the top of your head, then fill up your body, then spill the excess Gold Light out through your chakras and fill up your aura all the way… 8 feet out… and program all that to stay there.  It is impermeable armor.  You won’t believe how effective it really is.

      Next, you box your TD in God’s Metallic Gold Light so he stews in his own juice.  You can fill the box with God’s cleansing Love and White Light to really make the critter uncomfortable.  They don’t like love or any of that kind of nice stuff. 

      Then you call the critter out, with the box of divine Light stuck all around him.  Stand in your power as the homeowner and head of the house.  Make sure you feel no fear or anger or hatred toward this critter.  If anything, feel amusement at the fact that the silly-ass little twerp has decided to try to pick on you.  The TD isn’t going to be happy about any of it. 

      Address the critter with the following points in about this manner: “Alright you… I know who you are and what you are! You have no right to be here. You do not have my permission to be here in my house.  I don’t want you here and you HAVE to leave right now!  But before you go, since you’ve been staying in my house, messing with me and my family, you need to pay me rent money for your stay.  You owe me $_____ (come up with a reasonably outrageous amount).  You OWE ME MONEY, so pay up NOW and then LEAVE.” 

      Most of the time, the TD will leave immediately.  I reckon it is because they don’t like the display of personal power, they don’t like the fact that you know they are in physical, and they’re not comfortable being boxed in Light, but they’re really not into the concept of getting a job so they can pay rent money.  Can you just picture an alien behind the counter at a fast-food chain asking people if they want fries with their burgers?  No, they’ll beat a hasty retreat instead. 

      A lady in California found some loose change in her driveway after the TD left her house.  She later had to chase it out of her mother’s house and her workplace.  She got plumb amused by it all, which is the correct attitude.  She taught other people how to handle it, too, thereby helping to chase the forces of darkness from a section of Southern California. 

       Another time, Dick Dixon the Reiki Bubba here in Houston, called me regarding a presence in his son’s house up in Maryland.  Maryland is known for its abundance of occultists, so it was assumed this might be a demon of some sort.  In this case, the presence was a really tall, dark shadowy looking being that had glowing red eyes and emanated evil.  Dick’s son is a strapping big guy that isn’t afraid of anything, and he and his wife have two crystal kids.  Dick described what was going on and I told him the same way to handle it.  Dealt with in true Texas Bubba fashion, the critter left immediately and there was rejoicing and a “thank-you” on my answering machine. 

       If the TD has been hanging around jacking with you for a long time, it may take a wider range of efforts to get the TD to move on.  You will probably have to get creative and experimental to come up with different techniques and methods of jacking with the TD, all of course with an attitude of fun and play (they don’t like that).  That’s where you need to try out all sorts of things to elevate the vibration of the house and grounds.  Absolutely check for and block off any geopathic or noxious rays to help cut off the TD’s potential power supply.  Try gridding your property with various stones, and performing very spiritual ceremonies to anchor Divine Light to your house.  Consider getting a series of tools geared for dealing with the situation, like those from http://www.oneforce.cc  which includes “The Orb Card”, the “Gray Disruptor Disk” and the “Bioelectronic Equalizer”.  Other possibilities include the Absolute Truth” ball from my own website, and any number of psychotronic devices on the market.  

       Whether you have ghosts or TDs, the main thing is to get out of fear, anger and all that other low-end stuff, and manage yourself and your own thought patterns.  You have to step up, take back your power and deal with the entity tête-à-tête.  If you can’t do that, you’re in for a long, hard time of it.  Begging for rescue won’t help because there are a lot of people out there that will take advantage of you and mooch all the money they can from you.  The truth of the matter is that nobody can rescue you.  You really have to do this for yourself.  Maybe that’s the core issue for the times we’re in.

       Another thing… while you can call in someone to successfully clear out ghosts and close portals/vortices, you CANNOT have someone else get rid of aliens for you.  Ghosts are general… they can come with the land or the structure, or show up attached to some item of furniture; they can surf in on some negative aspect of the global Hartmann Grid.  The aliens are specifically there to mess with you or members of your household, so it is specific to you.  You have to stand in your power and authority to confront them for what they are and demand they leave… nothing else will work. You have “grow a pair” and set yourself  free. I’ve explained this repeatedly to several paranormal researchers.

No-Eyes’ Prophesies

The other night I was knocking around my workroom, and out popped my copy of “Phoenix Rising” by Mary Summer Rain. It is about No-Eyes’ vision about this time frame of transition we are in. Looking through the lists in the back of the book, about the various stages of the days of the phoenix… we’ve already seen a lot of the prophesies fulfilled, and we can see the bigger, nastier ones walking down the street.

* Bush is currently trying to stack the courts to become impotent to strike down bad laws or to uphold our Constitution. The Supreme Court is predicted to be making some very bad decisions in the next few years… bad enough to send people into the streets in protest.
* There’s gonna be a lot more American soldiers all over the world fighting. Terrorism, discord between countries, undeclared wars, clandestine activities, high level secrecy. It will go to a nuclear exchange (this was predicted before the invention of DU missiles) in a number of places, including U.S. soil.
* Trade deficits between nations will become crippling, and many will default on loans, leading to economic hardships, discord and saber-rattling the world over.
* Jobs are being outsourced in staggering numbers, which will cause staggering amounts of unemployment, which will cause waves of consumers to default on loans. The post-9/11 cheap credit spending frenzy is coming back to roost. The financial PACs are already lobbying to make it impossible to file for bankruptcy. If enough people lose their jobs, then real estate will lose its value.
* Excessive taxation, particulary of the people who can least afford to pay. The Republicans have been overreaching on all levels. In Texas, Gov. Perry unveiled H.B. #3, which taxes the people with the lowest income at an additional 5%, while the taxes get lower further up the income scale… up to $80,000 a year pay 2.66% and those earning six figures get a huge tax cut. Insane.
* Stock market misdealings and decline. Increase in corporate crime. Duh. Enron and WorldCom are just the tip of the iceberg. There will also be a lot of small business failures, factory shut-downs, and construction decline.
* It will come down to cash becoming the only accepted tender.
* Major devastation in California, earthquakes in new areas, record-breaking flooding, soil erosion, intensified hurricane devastation, increased tornado activity and damage, sinkholes, rapid temperature inversion, crippling winters, higher pollution levels, widespread surface blazes, greenish hue to atmosphere. Mt. St. Helens is getting jiggy again, Yellowstone Park is seriously active, and they’re seeing earthquakes on both the southeast and southwest coast of Canada. Expect to see major stuff along the New Madrid Fault.
* Disease outbreaks, rise in homicide/suicide, germ warfare release accident… predicted long before chemtrails, but probably including some more direct and intentional releases intended to kill off large masses of the populace. Given the contempt that the Bush’s neocons have for everyone that isn’t making beaucoups of big bucks, I wouldn’t be surprised to see that coming down in the next couple of years.
* No more separation of church and state. As the religious leaders buy and demand influence in the affairs of state, the state will eventually start meddling in church affairs. Religious oppression. More religious groups going to court to force their restrictions on the public. The masses will question all of it… about bloody time.
* Increased UFO sightings and interaction with other intelligences. Just wait till Bush’s guys start seeing the transdimensional aliens that have been hovering around them for years.
* Widespread acceptance of the paranormal and ongoing life after death.
* Nuclear disasters, including several close calls with nuclear power plants. No-Eyes said there will be two catastrophic melt-downs, seeping radioactive dump sites, radioactive pollution of land/rivers, radioactive releases due to geological instability, major accidents during transport of nuclear missiles and/or waste.
* Taxation refusals. War resistance. Draft evasion. People’s revolt and resistance movements. Public’s discovery of coverups. Riots.
* Major upheavals within governments.

We’re pretty much there, gang. Let’s make the best of it. Know where your food is, know your land, know where your water is. Gather and learn all you can about natural curatives. Get into your bliss and gather the true power of the gifts of Spirit while you can. That inner work is your ticket through the mess. A lot of people are becoming awakened nowadays, too. I know because I am making and selling a record number of custom pendulums.

On the other side of all this predicted upheaval, we can expect a greatly whittled-down population to be living in harmony with the land, using non-polluting energy sources, growing their own food, and adapting Native American philosophies and ways of living. It is worth hanging in there for.

Collapse of Financial System Coming Soon…

It is November 19, 2011 and the psychotic kleptos are going for the endgame as fast as they can.

The following post is well worth reading:  http://www.shtfplan.com/headline-news/warning-from-wall-street-broker-the-entire-system-has-been-utterly-destroyed-recommends-all-customers-withdraw-from-all-of-the-markets_11182011   When a top investment manager, Ann Barnhardt of Barnhardt Capital Management, tells her clients that  she’s mailing out checks to her clients and closing up shop, it is long since time to take notice. She sites the recent collapse of MF Global, a commodities investment firm that also maintained savings and checking accounts for its customers, and how the firm was coopted/purchased by Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan and asset-stripped. In their asset-stripping, they also STOLE the private accounts belonging to customers and transferred them to JPMorgan.  There’s  no real investigations by the regulatory agencies happening, and therefore no rule of law.  The playground isn’t safe any more.

I got news for you… it is coming to a bank near you.  You’ve been warned!  Most of us need a bank to transact business… BUT… get your money out of the big banks and into a local credit union, and don’t keep any more money in your accounts than you actually need on a monthly basis.  Keep a cash fund stashed in your house… enough to cover a couple of months’ expenses in the event of a protracted “bank holiday”.  Apart from that, you take any and all excess out and buy silver and gold.  I’m not kidding.

Why precious metals?  Why silver and gold?  Quit comparing the metals to the dollar… think of what that ounce of silver or gold will buy versus how many dollars it would take to buy the same thing. The metals are sacrosanct because they hold value when the money loses its value. Precious metals and currency have an inverse relationship: when currency is strong, the metals are priced low, and when the currency is weak, the metals are greatly in demand and become expensive.   The metals banks (CME, LBMA, NYMEX, COMEX, etc.) are controlled by the elites, and are doing fractional reserve banking with those metals, likely selling 100 in paper for every ounce of the physical they have in their vaults, and it is likely that some of that physical stock has multiple ownership claims on it.  With silver coming out of the ground on only a 6-to-1 ratio with gold, and most of that silver getting gobbled up by industrial users, the current 53-to-1 ratio that silver is currently selling for simply does not make sense.  While they are suppressing market price discovery, the metals are an investment opportunity that is unrivaled.

As the currency loses purchasing power to inflation, or the likely hyperinflation, and the income sources dry up, you will have preserved your wealth by having converted those fiat dollars into precious metals.  After the meltdown, when you need to go shopping, you will take your piece or two of bullion to the place you bought it from and convert it to whatever the coin of the realm will be.   

The big banks are all insolvent.  Bank of America has a huge exposure to the derivatives and bad mortgages (Countrywide) and the robo-signing scandal. Same with Wells Fargo, which bought Wachovia, which laundered over $300 BILLION in drug money for the Mexican drug cartels, including putting the cartel executives up in four-star hotels and leasing private jets for them. JPMorgan/Chase is not only in over their heads in scandals and market manipulation, but their balance sheets are pure fiction. Members of the US senate and house of representatives get inside information on the markets and routinely use that info to make themselves incredibly rich… they have no reason to reform Wall Street or the banksters that fund their campaigns.  The government is already stealing federal pensions, and they are eyeing up the prospect of nationalizing IRAs and 401Ks pretty soon. Get your money away from them now.

I will remind you of a few historical and current facts.  When people lose confidence in the money and the government, they take their money out of the system and put it into precious metals.  Right now, governments around the world are loading up on gold and silver in unprecedented amounts… India, Brazil, Mexico, China, Russia and many others are buying the precious metals by the ton in anticipation of a gold-backed currency system, whether local or global. We need to do the same because once the dollar has collapsed, whatever they replace it with will not be at a 1-to-1 ratio… expect to lose a lot.

We’re already seeing runs on the European banks now, with people doing exactly that… buying precious metals.  Unlike the United States, Europe in particular, and the rest of the world in general have extensive experience with currency collapse over the past century.  The European Union is going down in flames, as any ponzi scheme should.  You just can’t give countries of differing sizes and types of governments, different cultures and wildly varying economic bases all the same interest rate and credit rating.  The GDP of Greece is roughly the size of Wal-Mart… $350 billion… the perfect size for raiding… and their government signed on to bail out the big banks from their gambling debts and then saddling their citizenry with those bankers’ debts.  The bankers are already asset-stripping Greece of all its publicly held assets… the Parthenon, the subway system, the power grid… you name it.  They’re going after Italy next.  The entire EU is doing that, as is the US.  According to Pastor Lindsey Williams’ elite sources, http://lindseywilliams101.blogspot.com ,  the Euro will collapse first, and you will have perhaps less than 3 weeks to get your money out of the system here in the US before that collapses.  Get your money away from them now.

Back in the times preceeding the collapse of the Weimar Republic, Chile and Argentina, the people who got their money out of the system and used it to buy precious metals, preserved their wealth and were able to trade their bullion in for whatever the current coin of the realm was at the time they needed to go shopping.   Back during the Weimar Republic collapse, one could purchase a several story apartment or office building in Germany for as little as 1/5 an ounce of gold; most of the real estate in Germany was bought up by people from elsewhere that had gold.  True story. 

The longer term preservation of wealth is in metals. Yes, you need some cash to cover bills in the short term, particularly during extended “bank holidays” when debit and ATM cards won’t work.   At this point I wouldn’t even worry about getting out of credit card debt, though it makes things easier for you if you can. I really think the elites are expecting people to default on all their credit card debt.

If you do not own your house outright, you might want to see if you can get it sold before the collapse.  I’ll remind you that the banksters plan on taking your house either by foreclosure if you can’t pay the note, or by lien if you can’t pay the property taxes, then they will have stolen your equity and then will turn around lease your house back to you.  So if you’re upside-down or underwater on the value of your house, quit throwing good money after bad; save that money and put it into buying precious metals and survival supplies.  Given that there are 3.5 million houses foreclosed on and sitting on banks’ books now, and that number is likely to grow to over 8 million houses before the market hits bottom, you really don’t want to be in real estate right now… wait until after the bottom and use your precious metals to pick up your dream home for a pittance.  

If you can, buy some rural land that you can actually productively farm and grow your own food sustainably.  That is the only real estate investment that is recommended at this time, and you need to have enough in metals to cover property taxes for several years while the economy reboots.  When the dollar is no longer accepted in exchange for oil, trucking is going to be greatly curtailed and food will get incredibly expensive other than the increased cost because of inflation.   Back during the Weimar Republic collapse, the people in the cities couldn’t get food… they headed out to the countryside and traded their sterling silver tableware for a bag of potatoes.   Local produce is gonna be king.

Crime is going to increase rapidly as the meltdown hits. The government is planning on this and has already built FEMA concentration camps. They’ll bring in foreign troops while our own troops are out occupying the Middle East.  Police forces in a number of towns and counties across the country are already being cut to the bone and are telling people to take steps to protect themselves. You need to get yourself a gun/ammo and fortify your living quarters against incursion by local thugs.  In those preparations, you need to also store food and water should civil unrest limit your ability to go to the grocery store, or lack of transport limits resupply of stores. Start picking up canned foods on sale, bags of rice, and purchase freeze-dried foods for longer term storage.

Other than that, sell everything you don’t actually need… get liquid.

Why Psychics May Not Work…

I had long since noticed that even though a given psychic reader may have excellent status and reputation within the community, and even with me as well (that’s a whole ‘nother thing), that they can’t seem to read me worth a hoot. I’ve had some readers try to tell me all sorts of crap that they thought I would do, according to their prognostications… and of course, they were dead wrong.  One told me that I would divorce my husband. Another said I would have an affair. Another said I was thinking of having an affair. You name it, they’ve said it.

I have long since known that there are people that are psychic as all get-out that are NOT on a spiritual path. Being psychic and being spiritual are two completely different things.

I commented about this to a good friend who happens to be a natural psychic. She summarized things quite well:  When you are really on the path, you have given yourself to God, and naturally hold yourself to a higher code of conduct and are completely outside the realm of ego dramas. When you are on the path, you enjoy a level of protection that the other people don’t have.

I l ike it.

Scaling Down Christmas

Christmas is generally something of a nightmare for me. First of all, everyone in my family has everything. On top of that, my siblings’ kids are grown and married and have replicated, making it even tougher to keep up with the crowd.  I have to keep a scratch-off list in an effort to keep up with everyone.  I can’t keep up with color preference or birthdays, or even personality.

Christmas has come down to swapping more tchotchkes that we’ll eventually re-gift some other time. I finally got to where I just want to give something small and useful, or failing that, something that is pretty that will be appreciated. 

This year, for the girls on my list, I stopped off at one of my jewelry wholesale dealers and purchased a wide variety of pearlized mother-of-pearl bracelets with the beads strung in two rows on stretchy cord… suitable for the office and still something I can amp up with spiritual energy. Mother-of-pearl is great for its “shell energy”, meaning that it is stealth energy that will keep you from getting noticed. I put the entire pile onto a Harmony Board to clear them, and then amped them up with angelic energy.  When it came time to package these bracelets, I tuned in and dowsed for each recipient as to who got which one. When it came time to open the gifts, the bracelets matched what each lady/girl was wearing perfectly. The good thing is that these girls/ladies are not as likely to be predated upon as they go about their normal activities, as they won’t be as readily noticed.

What I gave the men… I found socks on sale.  I got the big bulk bundle of athletic socks from Sam’s Club, and then I purchased a range of dress socks in different colors. Each adult male on the list got one pair of dress socks and one pair of athletic socks.  I spent about $6 on each male.  The two youngest boys got a shark-tooth necklace from my wholesale jewelry suppliers, who thought them terrible tough-looking. These aren’t things that will be tossed out or regifted. At the very least they’ll find themselves at the back of the sock drawer to surface when needed.

For next year I am considering a selection of inexpensive survival type supplies. How about a small kit with things like a mylar solar blanket, waterproof matches/other firemaking tool, compass, lanyard, whistle, bandanna, alcohol wipes and some bandaids? Maybe some little packets of Tylenol, hand sanitizer or little bottle of soap? How about an emergency lightstick or maybe an inexpensive multi-tool?  I could probably pick up some little shaving kit type containers at one of the wholesale places on Harwin.  Yeah… that might be a cool idea.

They’re leaving the planet…

It is July 31st, 2011, Silver is at $39.57 and rumored to be due another “correction” because of the paper silver traders suppressing the market. Watch the spot price and buy as much silver as you can while you can. It’ll be up to $75 or more by the end of the year.
Saturday I took a friend to this new holistic & green living expo at the Weston Galleria Hotel. While waiting in line at the bathroom, I received a phone call from my husband… his sister literally just died. 
Linda Jo was in a “skilled nursing facility” to recover from having multiple tumors removed from her legs, following a three weeks in the hospital where they pumped her full of antibiotics to deal with some infection.  She was already on a form of “light” chemotherapy for her cancer… I guess “light” meaning it kills you more slowly.  It looks like the years of chemo and other pharmaceutical treatments combined to overload and shut down her liver, which in turn overloaded her kidneys, which in turn dumped all those toxins into her heart, causing a heart attack that she couldn’t be brought back from. At least, that’s what most chemo patients experience if it isn’t the cancer that kills them.
From the time my husband’s older brother died back in February of this year, to this point, Linda Jo has been in and out of hospitals… rarely going two months without being admitted on an emergency basis.  She has two daughters… The younger one never had much of an immune system to begin with, but is still suckling a 1-1/2 year old son and spends her time passing infections back and forth between them… while this younger daughter had more time to look after Linda Jo, the infectious disease quotient landed Linda Jo in the hospital just about every month. The older one has an adult son and works three part-time jobs to support herself… so while she was healthy and non-infectious, she did not have time to look after Linda Jo.
When my husband received the phone call from the younger daughter, she was barely intelligible.  She was visiting when the cardiac episode started… the medics shoved her out the door to work on Linda Jo, doing every technique they could to no avail. We have not heard from the girls since then.  The girls ran interference between Linda Jo and the outside world, essentially keeping her from dealing with a lot of things… like doing the few duties involved in the executorship of her mother’s estate, and keeping the lawyer or my husband from handling it either. It had come to a point of critical mass because of the estate expenses that were piling up.  The two girls essentially screwed themselves by doing this because it will take another month to get the legal go-ahead from the judge and the letters testamentary, then probably another 2 to 3 months to get some of the funds away from various institutions and sell the house. 
On one hand, I know that Linda Jo has been set free and is having a great time on the other side, free of all pain and infirmity.  On the other hand, I know her daughters are grieving tremendously after spending several years trying to nurse her along. The whole  set of circumstances is incredibly sad.
So that’s two relatives dead in one year. I also receive plenty of news from people I know within the new age/holistic circuit who have passed… one about every month. Most of them are taken out quite suddenly, too.  Pay attention to the people passing around you. Even if they are completely oblivious to the current patterns in the economy, they are still preparing for it by leaving. The ones that pass in the next year or two are doing so because they made the deal when they entered these bodies for this lifetime… they were not going to hang out for the rough stuff.  “The Greatest Generation” that actively participated in World War II has all but passed, and the “Baby Boomers” are starting to retire, and many are dying fairly young.
A lot of people are making their decisions… whether consciously or unconsciously.

French Revolution Redux

What happens when WE THE PEOPLE succumb to government bailouts of the uppermost 1% for their gambling debts, stock market bubbles bursting, lack of sound money, rampant inflation/depreciation of currency, outlawing and confiscation of precious metals and the designation of only fiat currency as legal tender, currency controls, confiscation of property, price controls… and the entire country went down the drain.

Well… you get bank runs, riots, disappearance of shops and commerce, food shortages, loss of tourism, and finally, the introduction of the “Reign of Terror” with government officials and aristocrats dragged to the guillotine by the thousands. Yeah, I think the French got it right.

We’re about to see it all being replayed in Europe… and soon, here in the U.S.

Here is a link to a nicely done documentary by Max Keiser that explains it all:  http://maxkeiser.com/2011/10/25/occupy-18th-century-france-john-law-the-original-blythe-masters-the-french-revolution-the-original-occupywallstreet/

History is repeated by people who don’t learn from it.

THE SECRET TO TIGHT GUMS…

I just got the ol’ postcard notice from my dentist. This is the same dentist that George Herbert Walker Bush goes to here in Houston. The guy is a real peach, and tries to be gentle. I don’t have the trepidation at the concept of going to the dentist that I used to. I’ve got a handle on a lot of the underlying problems that were giving me hell so many years ago.

Well… last summer, I finally decided to go to the dentist, after having not gone for three years. The hygienist x-rayed me, checked me over and cleaned my teeth, and remarked at how very little plaque I had, and that my gums were amazingly tight. Their main comment was that I had probably been brushing my teeth a little too hard, most probably because I hadn’t been going to the dentist regularly. The dentist himself confirmed this, looking at my information sheet listing the many vitamin and herb supplements that I take, either with every meal, or as I feel the need. These include a whole vitamin C supplement, B-complex, co-enzyme Q-10, MSM, gelatin/silica supplement, Fo-ti, calcium-magnesium-zinc, omega 3-6-9, vitamin D and E, and beta carotene. If I’m fighting an infection, I know to add selenium, olive leaf extract (in capsules) and oregano oil gelcaps to the pile.

I mentioned that I switched to iced tea in place of soda pop, and I use Stevita stevia sweetener in that iced tea. I also munch on ice after meals to clean the teeth, or at least knock off the big chunks. I also switched to non-waxed dental floss, because the unwaxed variety scrubs between the teeth better, and I usually swish with colloidal silver  (and I swallow it) instead of regular mouthwash. I also use an “organic” toothpaste without fluoride, that uses essential oils to control bacteria in the mouth. Fluoride, I’ll remind you, not only does nothing whatsoever to help your teeth, but makes you acquiescent to all sorts of abuse (probably the main reason why we’re in the current pickle with our government), and shuts down the pineal gland (the source of most of our psychic ability). Most of the sweets I make at home are sweetened with stevia, xylitol and inulin-FOS, and much cleaner ingredients than you will ever see in the grocery stores. On top of all that, my campaign to get the candida out of my body has definitely helped my gums.  All of these differences are very good.

I still needed some serious care at the time… I had one cracked tooth, and a couple of the crappy veneers that the quack dentist put on several years ago (and she cut my gums to do so) were falling off, leaving sharp edges. I needed a crown for that broken tooth, so he took a cast and then installed a temporary crown, then got rid of a couple of amalgam fillings and patched one of the veneers. I got to break the whole bill down into four payments, which helped, though it really took a chunk out of my budget. It kept me from putting any money away for the last four months of 2009 and into 2010, which made paying income taxes a booger-bear.

Listen… my teeth aren’t much to look at. I grew up in an area (South Houston) with a lot of natural fluoride in the water that caused me to have streaky yellow teeth; kind of like horse teeth. That quack dentist on Highway 6 is no longer in that location, and her partner in crime, the endodontist she sent everyone to, is now deaf (she never listened to anyone anyway). The point I’m making is that we have to take care of ourselves the best we can while we are in these fragile bodies. That means questioning the standard medical or dental line and doing our own research. It also means listening to our own bodies. What you do that impacts your dental health, also remarkably impacts the rest of the body in every way, long term.

Noisy Neighbors…

Okay so it’s Saturday night… the new next-door neighbors have their stereo system cranked up playing their rowdy bumpa-thumpa music. It’s only 11 PM, but if they don’t have it wrapped up by 1 AM, I can and will  put a stop to it.

You see, the older couple next door to the west sold their two-story up on the market so they could move “out to the country” as many retirees do here in Texas. They were such nice people. I watched their two kids grow up and move out.  They took excellent care of their house and yard, impeccably doing  repairs and maintenance as needed.  They were quiet for the most part, too.  Occasionally they’d leave their water sprinkler on a little too long and I’d go next door and knock to tell them they were watering the street. I miss them.

The people who bought the house turned out to be third world types with heavy accents.  They don’t seem to care about their lawn… I never once saw them watering their yard during the summer.  They park in front of my house, denying me access to my own curb.  They announce their comings and goings at all hours with loud talking; the dad seems to work odd shifts. Their kids are loud, though seemingly sweet.  The parents have had several loud arguments in the yard during the wee hours.   I swear, the next time they do that, I’ll pull some pants on and walk out there and yell at them to get a marriage counselor.

It matters to me since I sleep in the front room that is so exposed to their noise.  For this disturbance alone, I tend not to like them very much. Yes, I get it… different cultures and all.  Of course, I don’t really expect these people to remain in that house very long… maybe a couple of years. Like the house on the east side of me, I expect to see a procession of different homeowners through the years, some that care about the house and yard, and some that don’t. One couple liked to brag on their stereo’s bass response into the wee hours so I used the “cure” on them.  The current east-side neighbors seem fairly settled.  They had a child a couple of years back. I take their mis-delivered mail over to them.

So how do you get your noisy neighbors to wind down their party? Easy.  Open your window and crank up some traditional bagpipe music. I’m serious.  Bagpipe music is designed to be heard for miles over rough terrain… the timbre of it drowns out bass-heavy music.   Believe me, when the bagpipe music comes wafting over the fence, they will shut their stereo down.  Be prepared for some dirty looks the next time you see each other in the front yards. If you don’t have any on hand, hit Amazon.com and look at The Queen’s Royal Marines and The Black Watch, the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards, Scottish National Pipe & Drum Corps and anything else. I personally don’t like the droning of their funerary music… I really prefer the marching music. It is also great for taking long walks… since that is what the military music was made for.

What to do with $1,000 Now

If you get the chance, please look at this video, the link for which was sent in one of Gerald Celente’s e-newsletters: http://www.youtube.com/v/yOjq1oww3FA&hl=en_US&fs=1&rel=0&color1=0x5d1719&color2=0xcd311b

Stick with watching the film because it will tell you what is going on and the reasons behind it all. About a quarter of the way through it, it explains why the price of precious metals has been so depressed: the big bank gangsters have been shorting the metals.  They’ve been selling positions in metals as if they actually had stored metals on hand.  They apparently don’t.  At some point, all their customers are going to demand to see the accounting and they physical metal. If they can’t produce, the market will correct  rapidly. That means a whole range of things.

So if you have $1,000 sitting around, buy silver while the price is still being stepped on!  Junk silver or silver round are easy to get. Since gold and silver are indexed at 16 to 1 in value, you can expect gold to make the same jump, perhaps to as high as $6,000 or more. Does anyone else see the opportunity in this?

Petty Bureaucrats…

I had been receiving some nasty notes from the management company hired by my subdivision’s homeowner’s association. Seems my yard was attracting the attention of some unseen bureaucrat riding around in a car with a laptop. These letters were all labeled as “certified demand letters” stating I had 30 days to address the infractions, namely cleaning out tree wells, weeding plant beds and raking leaves. The letters all stated that I could be fined and would have to pay legal fees.  I typically considered these no more than nuisances as I have a yard service that comes weekly… so it was all being handled as far as I was concerned.

You see, in Texas, homeowners’ associations wield way too much power. One famous case a few years back involved a little old lady in Champions Forest that never received her HOA membership bill (we’re talking a couple hundred dollars here), so the realtors on the HOA board of directors sold her house out from under her at auction for just a few thousand dollars… we’re talking about a quarter-million dollar house that was fully paid for, and suddenly she was kicked out without notice or the ability to pack her stuff.  By the time the lawsuit got her possession of her house back, they found that the guy that bought the house at auction absolutely trashed every room. Nobody on the HOA took responsibility for this travesty.  They’re being sued, of course.  That led to some new legislation to take power away from HOAs, but they still retain way too much power. You have to be aware that if somebody has the idea that they can use some infraction as an excuse to flip your house out from under you, they probably will. Committees, like corporations, are irresponsible and faceless entities.

After receiving several more of these over a number of weeks, finally culminating in a registered letter that I was not at home to sign for, I finally read far enough to the part about the legal fees and decided to call the management company.  I did not bother contacting the twit that signed these letters. I asked for the top dog and was forwarded to her voice mail. I left a fairly detailed (meandering) message, requesting to be called back.

So Ms. Bonds called back, obviously needing to have things clarified.  I gave her my address and phone number and the conversation began again as she typed into a database.  I told her about these harassment letters, the fact of the oak trees still molting like crazy, the 5 drum liners of leaves that had left my front curb with the trash pickup on Monday and the fact that my yard guys were in my yard at that exact point in time. I told her that I have only one tree worth mentioning and described that it was a built-up bed to allow for other plants, which were in the process of recovering from the long, bipolar winter.  I mentioned that I did indeed have that tree trimmed routinely, particularly if it was hurricane season… I didn’t want the branches smacking either my roof or my neighbors’ roof. I even mentioned the love/hate relationship I have with the shrimp plants that have taken over several beds… I wasn’t going to get rid of them because the hummingbirds rely on them… and Ms. Bonds agreed with me.  I mentioned that that tall pile of sticks next to the front walk is a hummingbird bush, which in indeed still alive but hasn’t re-upped as yet… if it doesn’t, I will have it yanked by the yard guys.

I made certain to mention that everything is handled as the season, the plants themselves and my time allows. The tree has to stop molting and the plant life in that front bed has to be given the opportunity to reassert itself before I can move on anything.

I took everything point by point as she typed. I established that I certainly had a relationship with my yard. I made damn sure that sending certified letters didn’t help anything as even if my husband were interested in answering the door, it would take him 10 minutes to make it to the door thanks to his advanced Parkinson’s disease and that I was the only one handling the many and varied tasks of running the household. I made it clear that this petty bureaucrat needed to cool her jets before it gets to the point where so many people feel the need to have the HOA pull the contract with that management company. She made it clear that I should not be receiving any more letters from this point. I’m betting this bureaucrat is going to get a stern talking-to.

I didn’t need to go so far as to discuss the actions I would take should this harassment continue. Yes, I can write a letter to Ms. Bonds AND the HOA board outlining what was going on and defending my rights as a property owner in that same place for over 30 years (possibly removing them from their HOA contract), I can take my harassment complaint to the sheriff’s department, and even to my state senator who is running for attorney general. Then there’s always Houston’s consumer defenders in the media… they’re always fun. I have plenty of fight in me if they want to engage me.

Gang… you have to speak truth and address anyone carefully who seems to think they have any power over you. You address them nicely but clearly, and you don’t let them push you around. Some people, given a little power, will try to push you around.  You don’t let them… ever.

In case you haven’t noticed, there is a standoff in Bunkerville, Nevada at the Bundy Ranch. The Bureau of Land Management has been trying to kick them off their grandfathered property over corporate fracking rights. That family has been fighting in the courts for some years, and now there are armed federal thugs surrounding the place.  Now 5,000 citizens’ militias are either there or en route to back up the Bundy family in an effort of stopping another Ruby Ridge event. The sheriff, the one person with the authority to stop all of this and throw the feds in jail, hid under his desk… he needs to be removed. Other sheriffs have gone to the media over this.  This is looking like the second shot that will be heard around the world. The feds will probably shoot first, but the militias will finish it.

Obama is Still a Fake.

The date is 4-27-2011 and silver is at $48.37 spot. I notice that WordPress likes to grab old blog entries and recycle them with the current date.
Well… in the news… Obama releases his new birth certificate.  Contrary to what Faux News says, the “birther movement” not only is NOT dead, but has just gained new momentum.  The image of the certificate on the White House site has a green patterned “security” background… obviously not part of the original document. http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files/rss_viewer/birth-certificate-long-form.pdf   
The hospital he was allegedly born at doesn’t have his records, and the hospital didn’t have that name at the time of his birth and no doctor signed the certificate. Back in January, former Hawaii Elections Clerk, Tim Adams, signed a sworn affidavit that there was no long form Birth Certificate.  This certificate also proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Obama is not eligible to be president because he is not a natural born citizen… his dad was not a US citizen, which violates constitutional law and renders everything Obama’s done as president NULL AND VOID.  If he was adopted, then he is actually a citizen of Indonesia. Putting it simply, there are too many holes in the guy’s story. It all smacks of forgery.
Furthermore… Alex Jones got an Adobe Photoshop expert to pull the PDF from the White House website and pick it apart, and it is very interesting. I am a professional Photoshop user myself. There are so any layers and alterations on the posted long form birth certificate, you wouldn’t believe it, and the type is done in at least two different fonts. As forgeries go, it is downright amateur. Obama’s bunch is insane if they honestly think we can be fooled this easily.

http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/6/YepXje_EccY
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/5/93UmFfiu0BY
Add to this, a prominent researcher, Wayne Madsen, has been told by various credible diplomatic and state department sources that Obama wants him dead because Madsen’s been getting a little too close to the truth. Madsen has been all over Chicago and all over the schools Obama allegedly went to only to find more huge holes in Obama’s story. Nobody at Occidental, Columbia or Harvard has ever heard of him. Looks like Madsen will have to finish this current book he’s working on in another part of the world. You can listen to his interview on Alex Jones here: http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/23/xQ7RYdplT7I
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/22/5Mkzj7A2VsQ
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/21/d5LoWimrX2c
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/20/ccWD-DW4yNw
and a little more on what Madsen found out about Obama’s parents and his background here:  http://www.prisonplanet.com/obama-is-right-there-are-more-important-issues-than-his-birth-certificate.html
Obama is clearly the last person we want to have his hand on the thermonuclear trigger button.  He is a CIA “Manchurian candidate” with a completely fabricated history. He’s already proven to be worse than George “W” Bush in a number of ways… he’s gotten us into yet another war we don’t need to be in over in Libya and working towards yet another in Syria.  He’s giving away incredible amounts of money to big multinational corporations and foreign banks on our dime.  His entire intent is to crash America for the globalist elites, and I’d say he’s doing a good job of it.
Gosh-dern it, we gotta get these crooks outta our government!

The Silent Majority are the Preppers…

I visited with a friend who sells industrial pumps today, Greg, who told me of a lunch date he had with an old customer of his.  Greg is 62, literally 10 years older than me. We grew up in approximately the same neighborhood south of Gulfgate Mall, on opposite sides of I-45.

Greg and Bill are of similar-enough age.  At length, Greg stated, “You know, Bill, you might think I’m crazy, but I’ve been collecting military-grade guns for years, and I’ve been loading up on ammo, and I’ve cashed out my stocks in favor of buying metals… and I’m stocking several months of food.”
Bill eyed him and said, “Greg, if you’re crazy, then there’s a lot of us. We’re all doing that.”
As they discussed things, they arrived at the conclusion that the people that are aware and are “prepping” to outlast the very likely upcoming Argentina-style hyperinflation, are mostly from among what President Nixon described as the “silent majority”. 
Greg and Bill agreed that the worst of it will likely be over by December 21st, 2012. I tend to agree, personally, never mind the Mayans.  Granted, every time I run into someone else who understands what is coming up and is actively taking steps to not only survive, but prosper, while the rest of the populace goes nuts, I feel grateful because that is one less family that will die in the FEMA camps.

While the term “silent majority” has been used throughout the centuries, Nixon made it the reference to the post WWII conservative base of people, predominantly in the south, midwest  and west, who weren’t “joiners”.  The silent majority were not part of the noisy minority of progressive activists such were protesting the Viet Nam War.  Most of them are ex-military.  They simply voted their conscience to the best of their ability, while upholding the basic tenets of American society, including Constitutional law.

Offhand, I would have to say that the “silent majority” isn’t very silent these days. They are part of the Tea Party base, at least up until it got coopted by the neocons.  These are the people who are writing the prepper/survivalist blogs, teaching concealed handgun certification classes, and generally serving as the vanguard of what will take over after the hyperinflationary apocalypse in the next few months to a year.

Marching Orders for the New Congresspeople…

Okay… so now the republicans have won a simple majority of the House of Representatives, though the democrats still control the Senate.  I’m hoping that  the new republicans are constitutionalists (insead of neocons or RINOs)  and are willing to work to overturn Obamacare and any other junk that the democrats are planning to pass while in lame duck session. Remember that all legislation is supposed to originate in the House.

My list of what we need to bug the newbies about introducing:
(1)   Audit the Federal Reserve… and ideally remove it from existence al la Andrew Jackson.  The Federal Reserve is nothing but a mob of private bankers who create money out of nothing, backed by nothing, and then sell it to the goverment at interest that can never be paid back. Right now the debt service payments are taking 95% of total income.  The government can print money without having to pay interest, and believe it or not, that is actually somewhat sustainable. Time to take back control over that. Even better if you can actually back the currency with something.  While they’re at that… declare the debt to the Federal Reserve null and void, since the money isn’t backed by anything… that alone will restore the US’s credit rating.
(2)   Reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act that kept the banks from becoming casinos with their derivatives, and reinstate the Anti-Trust acts that kept any one company from dominating any one market and helped the smaller companies to compete on an even playing field.
(3)   Investigate the big banks and start making arrests… it is time to find out exactly where all that “bailout” money went and start getting it back with interest.  The guys that gave themselves multi-million dollar bonuses after getting bailed out… they need to have their accounts and any other properties seized, because that’s where all the money from the real estate bubble went. What they did amounts to theft, racketeering, extortion and… well… all sorts of terrible things. Remember the savings and loan scandal back in the late 70s/early 80s?  After that bailout, over 5,000 crooked bankers were arrested back then… time for another round of investigations and arrests. Right now, most banks are keeping two sets of books, simply because their bookkeeping is so dodgy to begin with.
(4)   Get rid of NAFTA and GATT… they are only “agreements” and not “treaties” and they are killing our economy, and creating a slave base in other countries. Ross Perot said it best… “People who don’t make anything can’t buy anything.”
(5)   Enact some import tariffs to force the companies that shipped their manufacturing overseas to bring their manufacturing back to America.  You know all those Toyota, Nissan and Honda plants all over?  They don’t actually manufacture the parts… they just import the parts and then bolt them all together at the plant… it gets them around a lot of import duties. Time to close that loophole, too.
(6)   Bring the troops home and put them along our border with Mexico… period.
(7)   Renew the so-called Bush tax cuts.  Every time they cut taxes, it encourages economic growth. 
(8)   Rescind Obamacare… period.
(9)   Get rid of the deadwood alpahbet agencies, most notably the Department of Energy, which hasn’t done what it was founded to do… end our energy dependence on other countries.  Open the marketplace for new energy technologies with tax breaks.  Get rid of the IRS while you’re at it. You want to save America?  Enact a small sales tax, let the states collect that tax and then get out of the way. 
(10)   One new law:  there is exactly one law that needs to be enacted… one that does away with all the country club health care insurance and retirement for congress, and puts them on the same system the rest of us have… after all… they’re only part-time employees.
(11)   NO NEW LAWS… and no unfunded mandates… period.  Other than the one above, we don’t need any more. Please refer back to the Constitution, if it ain’t in there, we don’t need it. Anything not specifically spelled out in the Constitution is left to the individual states to sort out. That means that if California wants to legalize, regulate and tax marijuana… that’s fine.  Of course, that still leaves employers with the due diligence of testing employees for pot or alcohol use while on the job or at the time of an industrial accident… time for everyone to take responsibility for their own behavior. 
(12)   Rescind the 401K law… that law that makes employers take deductions from employee paychecks and give it to stock brokerage firms for 401Ks, which are invested in mutual funds… that is a mandate to give gambling addicts taxpayer money to gamble with.  Most of us have lost over half of our 401Ks, and inflation is taking the rest of it.  I think we can do a lot better than that, by picking our own stocks or buying metals. People are more likely to save their money if the banks can pay a decent amount of interest.
(13)   Rolling back time the easy way:   investigate and impeach Obama/Soetoro. Impeach just means “bring to trial”… the sentencing phase would be a whole ’nother thing. If the guy can’t produce a real birth certificate to prove he is a U.S. citizen once and for all, he should be removed from power and charged with perjury. Actually, his current name and his birth name are completely different, so that alone qualifies as perjury. If he cannot prove he qualifies to be president under the Constitution, then he really should go to jail, and every piece of legislation that he’s signed into law suddenly becomes null and void.  Yes, I’d like a ”reset”.

Bulk High Protein Dry Foods

I have a few resources for you:

http://www.sunorganic.com  has great deals on quinoa, amaranth, millet, great northern beans (not so gassy), nuts and dried fruits. They are in California.

http://www.hidalgofoods.com  is in  Texas, and has the best prices on chia and maca, but if you are closer, the proximity can save you some serious bucks on shipping, even if the prices on quinoa are a little higher.

http://www.glaserorganicfarms.com is near Miami, Florida, so those of you on the east coast will probably save on shipping bulk items by ordering from them. Good prices on most items, and they also have a line of pesto sauces, nuts, raw snack foods, and other things for healthy cravings.

I’ve ordered from all of these companies and they are all good.  I will buy 25 lb. bags of the  grains and then use my FoodSaver system to suck-wrap them down into 4-cups per bag for long-haul storage.

Now… regarding the grains I’ve been ordering. Quinoa  is gluten-free, has about 15% protein content, a high amino acid score, a relatively low glycemic load and is loaded with bone-building minerals. Quinoa doesn’t have that much flavor on its own, so I fix that in the rice cooker with either chicken broth or bullion, chopped onions, garlic, parsley, tarragon and maybe even throw in a bag of frozen mixed veggies. Great stuff… works great with meat and gravy.

Amaranth is gluten-free, contains 13% protein dry, but has a high amino acid score and a load of minerals. Amaranth can’t take the place of rice as a side dish… too fine and too mushy. What I discovered on my own, is that you can either make a pudding out of it for dessert, or make it up with a little molasses or organic cane sugar, and serve it either as breakfast (like oatmeal or cream of wheat), or serve it along side your morning eggs as a substitute for grits. I’ll keep experimenting with it. I think it has promise for cookies and the like.

Millet is very interesting. It contains something like 11% protein, and also has middle score in amino acids and a higher glycemic index, and is heavy on bone-building minerals. It does substitute for rice very nicely. Cook it up just like you do rice, with a little salt and a pat of butter, and it tastes a lot like some kind of flavored grits. It substitutes for rice very nicely. My husband’s blood sugar will spike with millet, mainly because he goes back for second and third helpings, if he controls himself, it won’t spike.  There are a lot of artisan bread recipes that include millet. This has no gluten.

Compare that to whole grain brown rice, which has a very high glycemic index (higher than millet), about 7% protein, and is a lot more inflammation causing than the other three, by about double the numbers. Rice still contains gluten, even if it is refined out.

I did try kamut, which is a middle-eastern relative of the wheat family and does have gluten in it. It is about 16% protein and has a fairly low glycemic load, but then again, it’s tough to cook and eat the stuff. Granted I just put it in a rice cooker with water and a chicken bullion cube. It took darn-near forever to cook, and it still wasn’t cooked. Maybe the trick is to grind it up first. I’ll give it a “fail” for now.

Your Inner Old Fart

Granted a lot of old “Inner Child” issues are coming up because of Chiron Retrograde, and there’s always something new to deal with surfacing… kind of like peeling away layers of an onion. Yes, you do have to go look at the stuff that happened in your childhood to see how that’s been affecting you as an adult. You do have to release those nasty things that were said or done to you, and forgive the buggers that said or did that stuff.  You have to find where it is influencing your current patterns and defeat that old programming.

 For example, a lady friend of mine was always treated as “second class” by her parents, that she wasn’t good enough or desired… naturally this had an influence on her self-esteem. She went in for hypnotherapy to see what happened.  It turns out that she was actually the second child born to her parents, the first child was a boy that had been still-born. They wanted a boy.  The hypnotherapist took my friend back to her earliest memory as a baby, and it was just as she was being presented to her parents in the recovery room. As her mother held her she said, with a disappointed tone, “It’s a girl.”  She wasn’t the replacement son they wanted, and now they were stuck with this girl. That’s where my friend’s self-esteem issues came from, so she was able to deal with it from there.

 That said, the inner child is a demanding little brat, and there is only so far you can go with pandering to it. Do your excavating and get it done with, because there is something a lot more interesting to learn about and achieve synthesis with for greater empowerment… your “Inner Old Fart”.

 You remember the Wiccan trinity concept of Maiden/Mother/Crone?  We live in a youth-worshipping culture, or haven’t you noticed?  Young, tight bodies run by young, stupid brains are paraded all over the mass media.  The mid-life years of parenthood are the most productive years we know, where most of us amass most of our fortunes to last us through the final stages of life.  Why doesn’t our society like to acknowledge the Crone? Why are the older folks discarded so readily?  Why do we have to cover our wrinkles?  Our elders are supposed to be the keepers of our collective wisdom, and in many societies they are revered as such.

 Your Inner Old Fart is your future self.  So how do you view your future? You know that your longevity and quality of life is all up to you and your actions right now.  Are you going to be footloose and free after you “retire”?  Are you going to be active and healthy then?  Are you going to be a sharp old codger to lead the next generation of seekers?   Are you going to proudly name your own time of transition or are you going to do that steady down-the-toilet spiral into the nursing home and oblivion?  Are you going to be herded from one way-station to the next by someone wielding this society’s current throw-away culture value system?  If you have your head up your ass, don’t be too surprised when it isn’t so easy to pull it out of there.

 How about the Old Fart attitude?  The Inner Old Fart is cannily looking at all aspects of what is going on around you, analyzing and passing judgment with reference to whether you’ll bother going along with any of it.  What’s the angle?  What’s in it for me? Why bother?  Why do I want to get involved? Will it still be important a couple of months or years from now?  Get used to making people justify the “why and wherefore” of everything.  Remember that nobody can make you do anything.  You will find that by looking at the angles, particularly the angles on your money and health, that most of “the system” is NOT there for your best and highest good.  The Old Fart cannot be snookered into or out of anything. The Old Fart realizes that no matter what, you are responsible because it is your own choice.  “Sorry honey, go sell that crap somewhere else.”  There’s a lot of freedom in telling people where to get off.

Granted, if you are still too young to be a real Old Fart, you may have to internalize some of the Old Fart talk while you act quietly from that wisdom.  You know you’ve arrived at the Old Fart stage when you smart off and people think it’s cute.  Believe me, there’s nothing cuter than an 80 year-old telling some fool to “kiss my grits”. 

In short, the Inner Old Fart is the Zen of the Rat’s Ass taken into the next living level. Yes, there is truly a lot of power to be gained from attaining synthesis with one’s Inner Old Fart.

Shootings and Excuses…

When the announcement of the shooting by Jared Loughner of both a constitutionalist federal judge, U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, and a bunch of other people at a grocery store near the shooter’s house, I immediately began picking apart the news coverage with a critical eye.
There was so much utter bullcorn disseminated, everything from Loughner being a nazi, a right-winger, a liberal, a marxist, not to mention a satanist… no kidding. The media went after Sarah Palin because she had a map on her website telling her fans to vote certain people out of office because they didn’t fall in line with her own philosophy… and the map used little crosshair targets for the locations.  This has been spun so many different ways, it isn’t funny. If you get the chance, take a look at Keith Olberman’s interview with the guy from the so-called Southern Poverty Law Center (a well-financed Mossad front… no poverty involved) http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/43292-oh-they-are-getting-so-desperate  Notice how they’re spinning everything from the purchase of gold to going to Tea Party events, to meditative techniques and “conscious dreaming” as markers of potential nutjobs that might turn violent.
This evening I saw on the news, that Republican Rep. Peter King of New York plans to introduce a bill that would make it a crime to carry a weapon within 1,000 feet of elected or high-ranking federal officials at publicly announced events… which is nothing short of insanity… never mind a number of legislators who are licensed and carry their own guns for self-protection. It says to me that Peter King is corrupt and is afraid because he has something to hide.
Some other idiot(s) are trying to spin the event into an excuse for a total takeover of the internet and to clamp down on free speech. I find that funny because the most inflammatory rhetoric has generally come from the left wing.
Yes, based on the facts, Jared Loughner is apparently a paranoid schizophrenic, most likely on the very seratonin reuptake inhibitors that drive people to murder and suicide.  Studies have proven that Prozac has been a factor in a huge number of high profile domestic homicides since its introduction.  It is clear that the shooter’s parents have been AWOL for a long time. Loughner could hardly hold a real job, and was apparently refused by the military. One thing that wasn’t ever mentioned is that Loughner had a fixation on Giffords, kept her letters to him in a safe, and they are Jewish and went to the same temple.  Loughner also had a “satanic” altar in his backyard… the dark version of voo-doo in which its practitioners ask for entities to possess them. Speaking as a spiritualist, drug/alcohol use and intermittent possession go hand in hand.  It is entirely probable that the guy really is possessed.
Yes, it is as I suspected… whether or not  Jared Loughner was groomed to be a useful idiot in some CIA program like the underwear bomber or shoe bomber, or really is a deranged schzophrenic (really looks like it), the event is being used by the elites to further clamp down on our civil liberties, specifically the first and second amendments… free speech and gun ownership.  The oligarchs want everyone unarmed and on their knees. The shamelessness of the mainstream media and politicians in spinning this situation into another power grab is not just insensitive, but blatantly obvious. 
Based on the media and political response to the situation, I would say that the oligarchs are desperate to hurry the total lock-down police state before enough people wake up and realize just how bad things are, and begin to take back their collective power. We are being stolen from in every way, on all levels… our money/savings, our freedoms, our ability to earn a decent living and support our families, and so on.  The truth is, the oligarchs are indeed satanists and they delight in creating mass suffering. They manipulate the metals markets selling paper metals to force the price of the physical metals down (but not for long!) and they are manipulating food futures to drive up food prices all over the world. They are actively trying to kill each and every one of us with poisons in our food, medicines and water, as well as chem-trails, EMF, microwave  and sound wave attacks on the populace.  Just remember… we outnumber them.
The scenario that I envision, given the awakening of humanity, given the fact that we know who has done what to us by way of the internet and alternative news medias, the people will at some point take decisive action.  At some point, the oligarchs will head to their underground bunkers while masses drag the bankers and hedge fund managers and politicians out of their houses kicking and screaming, and invited to a really large “necktie party”.  I can just picture the streetlights along Wall Street and along the Mall in D.C. all bearing the dangling bodies of the corrupt.  It isn’t outside the realm of possibility when you think of it.
If I were one of the newly elected legislators in Congress, I’d begin pushing really hard to audit/end the Federal Reserve, declare the so-called debt null and void (it’s mostly derivatives and all on paper only) and organize a law enforcement task force to go after the very people who orchestrated this economic collapse and mass theft. I’d have the entire Federal Reserve board arraigned on charges (come on now, they just printed up $21 trillion and gave it away to a bunch of foreign banks… off the books.) and in jail while they await trial… and give them no access to their accounts. In fact, their ill-gotten gains should be taken from them in compensation for their misdeeds. That level of theft would be awarded with a fast trial and death sentence in most countries of the world.
If the newly-elected congress doesn’t take some decisive and high-profile measures on behalf of actually serving justice, I don’t think I’d give a plug nickel for their longevity. Watch them carefully in the months ahead. Hold their feet to the fire. Make your views understood through e-mails and petitions and phone calls.
Does that mean that I advocate violence?  NO… hell no!  That would likely play into the oligarchs’ hands to justify their fascist takeover, and we certainly don’t want to become what we fight. http://www.davidicke.com/articles/problem-reaction-solution-mainmenu-41/20744-please-dont-riot–its-just-what-they-want   In fact, I wouldn’t advocate walking in a picket line or any other physical protest.  The best things we can do is use social media to broadcast the truth of the times and events, and help our friends to prepare for the upcoming monetary collapse by both stockpiling food and BUYING SILVER to preserve our wealth.

Radionics 101, as Taught by Suzanne

(In response to the many questions on geopathy I’ve been getting over e-mail, I am hereby posting the following excerpt from another E-book I am working on, tentatively entitled “Ghost Hunter”. I hope this assists you all!)

I have noticed over the years certain correlations between geopathism and haunting activity, as well as various illnesses in people. If you have enough geopathic rays in a given area, ghosts can be caught and kept there in a manner very similar to a lobster or crab trap. Yes, it is possible to send the ghosts into the Light, but the basis is still there for the haunting. It will eventually attract more ghosts, and will hold them for years until a spiritualist comes along to clear them out. This is one thing I want all prospective ghost-busters to check for in an investigation of haunting.

My first awareness of geopathic phenomena came when I was describing “the corner of death” in my back yard in a Feng Shui class, and the instructor pointed out that this was a radionics problem. There was a geopathic ray cutting through that corner of my back yard, which energetically killed anything I planted in that corner. I got instructions as to how to locate it and what to do about it, and I reclaimed that corner. And so this aspect of my education began.

Radionic problems encompass a completely different area of knowledge where your dowsing skills will come in handy. It is helpful to bear in mind that everything is energy. If it is made up of atoms, then it is made up of energy. If you go past the atomic level, past the tiniest possible gluino, neutrino or quark, what do you have? This field of primal energy has been called ether, the unified field, or the nagual, depending on what approach you take to quantum physics. So, if you put one energetic structure in an energetic field, something will happen. The human body is no different.

Over the years many people have discovered that energy is organized in many different ways, in the field of dowsing you will find names like ley lines, geopathic (sick land) rays, noxious rays (earth rays) and related topics. All of us are sensitive to these various types of energy to varying degrees. A lot has been written and researched about this topic, mostly in Europe. Lately in the United States we’ve become more aware of physical stress and immune dysfunction caused by proximity to power transformers and the like. The American Society of Dowsers and the U.S. Psychotronic Association are probably the best sources of information in this arena.

Ley lines are well documented. They are highly beneficial and can be compared to the meridians of the human body. Ley lines are the meridians of the planet; when they are clear and flowing, the planet is healthy. The best and cleanest water supplies are usually found along ley lines. Wells located along ley lines in Britain are thought to have healing qualities. Crops grown along ley lines are greener, healthier, more disease resistant, more vital and with greater productivity even though the soil is exactly the same as outside the ley line. Fishing is better, animals are healthier, trees are bigger and so forth. You will generally find power centers (sacred sites) along ley lines. It’s not a good idea to actually live on a ley line, because such intensified vibrational interference can create stress in the physical body.

Earth Chakras. These are vortexes that compare to chakras in the human body. There are lots of them around. Some may correspond with geo-magnetic centers. Classically, the big cathedrals in Europe were typically built on top of “old religion” worship sites, usually on geomagnetic centers, like Chartres, Notre Dame and Winchester Cathedral. Stone cairns like Stonehenge and Avebury are also good examples, as are most Indian mounds and medicine wheels. There are also sites like Ayers Rock in Australia and Round Rock, Texas that feature a similar geo-magnetic energy. Ghosts will stick around these energetic structures to perpetuate their haunting activity. Sometimes ghosts will actually bend these Earth energy vortexes out of alignment, so not only do you have to walk the spooks into the Light, but you also have to heal any mis-alignment of the energy vortexes. Make sure these Earth vortexes are aligned with Divine White Light, but don’t attempt to close them as it may cause trouble for the residents of that region, just as a closed chakra in your own body can cause sickness.

There is also such a thing as a bad (or dark) vortex, and you’ll probably know it when you feel it. These can have various causations, including dark-side occultism and extra-terrestrials. Yes, I’m serious. These vortexes should be cleansed and closed with Divine White Light and angelic assistance. If you are unsure or don’t know the difference between a vortex and an earth chakra, just go into prayer-mode and encompass the whole area with Divine White Light through visualization and ask the angels to fix it.

Noxious rays are well documented and pretty obvious. Those who can see them say they look like distorted heat waves rising from a really hot surface. Vegetation looks bad, won’t grow, or dies off. A tree in a noxious ray will grow with a spiral-twisted trunk. Ants build their mounds along the perimeters of these areas. Dogs will not sleep in a noxious ray. Children will absolutely fight going to bed if it is located in a noxious ray. People sleeping in noxious rays experience immune dysfunction, infertility, and reduced life expectancy. Sleep is disturbed, sores won’t heal, broken bones won’t knit, arthritis and heart conditions arise, and conditions that were thought cured or in remission come back with a vengeance. I know one lady who had beaten her lupus into remission years ago, moved to a piece of property with a lot of noxious rays on it and discovered the lupus was making a comeback. I know of a small boy that died of leukemia because his bedroom was in the back of the house in a noxious zone. If an office building is built in a noxious zone, employees will experience double the number of sick days, lowered work productivity and will exhibit every stress related health syndrome. Cracks in a driveway, foundation, or sheet-rock, trouble with plumbing and electrical work, and other similar deterioration will follow the path of a noxious ray. Noxious rays create “cold spots” in buildings that cannot be accounted for by placement of windows or doors.

When underground water lines, rivers and streams cross one another in a given vertical area, they create an E.L.F. field from which noxious rays emanate. E.L.F. stands for Extreme Low Frequency. These are energy waves, below the threshold of hearing, that vibrate (usually) below 10 cycles per second, or Hertz. Flowing water has a frequency of 8 Hertz, and when two or more water veins cross, a new frequency is created which produces a noxious ray or vortex. Most noxious earth rays can be redirected or diffused with copper tubing or copper wire. For example, placing a length of copper wire or copper tape along the floorboard where a noxious ray enters a room will block the ray and send it upward. A series of copper pipes or rods inserted vertically into the earth where a noxious ray enters the property will diffuse the ray. The older a developed area is, the more geopathic zones will be present.

Geopathic rays are a variation of noxious earth rays, but are caused by man’s activities. Possible causes include underground water lines, electric lines and transformers, cable T.V. and telephone lines, microwave communications dishes, satellite T.V. dishes, underground fuel storage tanks, cellular phone antennas, traffic signal arrays, man-made building materials, industrial and military activities. Activities of people create a lot of environmental noise. Take careful note of how many microwave communications dishes there are around your area. These arrays can broadcast at frequencies that can cause large numbers of people to exhibit flu-like symptoms with no causal bacterial or viruses present.

A friend purchased a clothing resale shop in the Heights neighborhood of Houston. Everything physically seemed all right, but things were energetically off. The place had a heavy feeling to it. The shop had been owned by three older people who each were in decline due to ailments such as heart trouble, arthritis, and cancer. My friend had trouble keeping the energy clean and kept getting sick herself. It wasn’t until a couple of months after she closed the shop and liquidated the inventory that we finally figured out that the shop and the liquor store next door had a geopathic ray going through them. I wondered why I had to consciously make myself go there, and why it was hard to focus while there. It happens all the time. Restaurants, no matter how good they are, if built in geopathic zones, will not be able to overcome the bad energy and so will close down in a matter of months after opening. You will know this is the case when you dine in an otherwise nice restaurant, with good service, good atmosphere and good food, yet cannot seem to go back because it just didn’t feel right.

A lady was referred to me for a radionics consultation while at a psychic fair. She complained of not being able to sleep since she moved into her new split level brick house, which was creating a great deal of physical stress for her. I had her draw a map of her home site, then I tuned in and dowsed. She had one big honkin’ geopathic ray going diagonally through her house. I told her the cheap radionic cures: put a series of copper rods vertically into the ground along one part of her fence, and royal blue tape along a particular area of floorboard in both the upper and lower stories. If that didn’t work, I told her I had some other options. She called some time later saying she was sleeping much better.

Construction materials will often prove a factor in both radionics analysis and paranormal investigations. For example, people will buy mobile homes thinking they will have more freedom to move around. The only problem with a lot of these pre-fabricated homes is the level of toxins they can contain, including chloroform, formaldehyde and other potential cancer causing agents. I understand that the newer ones aren’t supposed to be quite as toxic. On an energetic level they can be even worse, depending on where you put them. You see, because of the materials they are made of, mobile homes are “orgone” or “earth energy” collectors. Tornadoes are naturally pulled toward orgone energy dense zones, which is why tornadoes always seem to hit mobile home parks first. Some prefabricated steel buildings, as in industrial parks, have similar energy collecting capacity. This energetic element can also amplify geopathic stress. I’m not saying that you can’t live and work in such structures, as sometimes it is unavoidable, but you do have to be aware of your surroundings. Mobile homes are best placed nestled among mature trees on otherwise uncluttered land.

We mentioned EPA Superfund Sites earlier. Houston is literally dotted with these toxic sites. Housing developments have been plopped on top of pools of toxic sludge containing all sorts of deadly stuff. There is a correlation with the above-mentioned geopathic or noxious rays with industrial toxic waste sites. It is an example of like attracting like. Or which came first: the chicken or the egg. It can start with a few geopathic rays, then as a result of sympathetic frequency someone puts an industrial site there, which creates a toxic dump site, then years later, some greedy developers cover the sludge with a thin coat of sand and put in a housing development, which in turn attracts people of that same particular sympathetic vibration. Sick land, sick people… sicker land, sicker people.

If you have ever known anyone who has lived on or near such a site, then you know it can make people sick. The Brio Toxic Waste Site off Beamer Road in south Houston adjacent to the South Bend subdivision certainly imprinted itself upon the residents on all levels. A portion of the subdivision was built on top of the sludge pond and has that sludge coming up through the lawn and the plumbing. People living in those homes came down with all sorts of immune system and respiratory troubles, including cysts and cancer. Women living in those houses gave birth to severely disabled or sick children. The sadness of the sick residents can easily leave behind a shard of consciousness large enough to haunt. Notice how it is all related? You may not be able to clear out the toxic sludge or clean up the water table beneath it, but you can block the geopathic rays and send the ghosts into the Light.

Dowse what “cure” will work and its application in each situation. Blue tape, copper wire (and devices made from copper wire), copper tape, copper rods, prayer, and scalar wave psychotronic devices are some of the standard solutions for geopathic zones. Reiki can also be used to heal a geopathic zone. Whatever you decide to use, it is still your intent that makes it work. Simply state, “this is to deflect the noxious ray” or something to that effect, while you are putting the “cure” into place.

Since ghosts are usually sensed by instrumentation as an electro-magnetic field, usually with an associated temperature drop, it makes sense that various types of energies can perpetuate their activity indefinitely, if permitted to do so. If you clean up the energetic environment, then it is easier to clean up the etheric environment.

So You’ve Got An Alien Invasion…

      I’ve run into several situations in which a “resistant haunting” turned out to be aliens. No, I’m not kidding. Yes, there is a presence, or a number of presences, but just because you can’t see them doesn’t mean that they aren’t there, and doesn’t mean that they are ghosts. There are more types of life forms in the universe than we have documented proof of. The good aliens might visit, but they won’t bother you, won’t scare you, and won’t hang out very long. The bad aliens are all about sewing fear then hanging out for the harvest… these are the ones that manipulate, kidnap, implant and experiment on people.

      Ghosts are pretty simple. Most can be chased out of a room by smudging it, or can be blocked out of an area or be made uncomfortable by anchoring Divine Light to the location… with that done, ghosts can be coaxed into the Light. This approach does not work with aliens because they are PHYSICAL beings, so you cannot walk them into the Light. Doing Ceremony to anchor Light might amuse them or might get them to become more aggressive in messing with whomever it is they’ve decided to hang out with, just to see what their victim/subject will try next.

      We might occasionally be able to see some of these aliens as orbs of energy… Stuart Wilde describes these as transdimensionals, most of which are up to no good whatsoever. These transdimensionals get their kicks from speaking deep into a person’s psyche, putting thoughts into his head and making him think they are his own thoughts… the TDs spend a lot of their time messing with politicians and industrial moguls… mostly people that think they’re better than anyone else. If you can see these TDs in their true form, they’re scary-looking skeleton-like ghouls.

      In instances where several types of aliens are present, it is likely that a spaceship is parked on top of that house. A spaceship can literally occupy the same space as a house, or a whole block, because it is on a higher dimensional frequency (high 4-D). So your living room might be in the crew’s quarters, or your garage might be their cargo hold, and your neighbor’s house might be were their engineering section is. Different sections of the ship might have different aliens.

      In instances where aliens are messing with someone who is fairly spiritually evolved and “on the path”, they’re typically trying to disrupt any progress being made by that person. The aliens will try to mess with them in their sleep, keep them from meditating, scare the kids and dog, and anything else. The person “on the path” will typically start out thinking they’ve got ghosts and will be dismayed to learn that all their ghost-busting tricks aren’t working. The aliens aren’t particularly effected by smudging or anything else, and they tend to be smart enough to get scarce when any consultants are brought in. Whether or not they connect to the fact that they are dealing with aliens, the way they get rid of the interlopers is by calmly standing their ground with absolutely no fear or anger, and demanding that they leave. If they can pilot a starship, they can certainly understand you confronting them in a mature manner.

      It took a bit of explanation for one such lady, a Native-American psychic who was highly experienced in clearing ghosts. Aliens were an alien concept to her. She finally understood both what I was telling her and what she had to do:  she went to where she knew they’d be hanging out (in her upstairs hallway) and demanded that they leave the premises at once or start paying rent. They left immediately.

      In most other instances the aliens are messing with people who feed them. Most of these aliens eat base emotions… anger, hate, fear, lust, disgust, rage, judgment and anything else along those lines. Yum, yum… such tasty drama keeps the aliens coming back for more!  The aliens will manipulate everyone and everything in the house to keep the snacks coming. These people will also tend to be the ones with the severe “victim” mentality that are begging to be rescued… over and over.  People on a spiritual path don’t tend to feed these critters because they have typically been working on releasing their dramas and negativity… their salvation comes from going within to release the basis.

      One lady began attracting predators by age 16, when she attracted a control-freak military guy that tracked her across several states until she was legal to marry… then proceeded to lay all sorts of mental abuse and programming on her. She has leaches for friends, children and relatives. The aliens had her so fearful and sleep deprived that she didn’t know enough to go to a doctor for a painful urogenital infection. She thought she was being raped by the aliens 24-7. Nope, that’s her victim mentality talking. She won’t stop feeding the aliens, either. 

      Ever wonder about all those people who had been abducted over and over for years, then suddenly left alone?  Those people got to a point where they couldn’t be terrorized any more, and moved into quiet acceptance and acquiescence of the aliens. That’s when the aliens couldn’t feed off of them anymore, so they left them alone. You’ll notice that the aliens tend to bother people with less education out in the ‘burbs, rather than someone, say, on the MIT or Texas Tech campuses. Curiosity tends to override fear… the prospect of research grant money doubly so. E.T. just doesn’t hang out in the Student Union.

      There have been several cases in which a homeowner/experiencer called in some paranormal researchers to get rid of the “presences” in their house. Yes, there may have been some actual ghosts on site, and they were probably walked into the Light on the first try, but aliens tend to know when to get scarce. The paranormal researchers will continue to get calls about ongoing activity to the point where they typically have cut their losses. It doesn’t mean the experiencer is crazy or imagining things… just dragging in the wrong consultant.

      Look at it this way… if you’ve been feeding the local wildlife for a while, and some varmints have scratched a hole in the roof and moved into your attic, you have to quit feeding all of the wildlife before you can get rid of the varmints under your roof. Once the varmints have gone for the day, you can close off their access, then work on varmint-proofing your house. Chances are, if you’ve had one kind of varmint that got your goat, you’ve probably had lots of varmints on all levels all along, but you didn’t recognize it until the critters got big, obvious and destructive. This is the Universal Law of Attraction in action.  In the case of aliens, you have to figure out what attracted them to you to begin with, and release the need for that experience in all its guises all across the board. Expect to require some hypnotherapy because some of these reasons reach way back into childhood.

The Channeling Trap

Gosh… how to address this one… I’ve seen all sorts of “channelers” over my past 20 years in the new age movement.

I’ve seen good channelers go bad pretty regularly… they start out with the best information and energies coming through, but make the “mistake of ego” and the next entity to pick up the phone turns out to be a complete dud. I’ve seen channelers go from building a hefty business, charging hundreds for a short reading, and even starting their own churches, to having to drop all of it and go get a day job when enough people discovered they had been taken in.

I’ve seen people that were not very specific about WHAT they wanted to channel, so they brought in really nasty beings and went about the psychic fair circuit thinking they could do no wrong. One of these, a fellow named Lenny, would open to channel and the vibe would get really funky, so if I saw him setting up at a given psychic fair, I would very surreptitiously walk about doing Tobacco Ceremony to both anchor Divine Light and to exclude anything or anyone not working for God’s Light. Ol’ Lenny would open to channel to find that his entities were stuck out in the parking lot. He’d pack up and head home. He only did that twice before he got the message and didn’t do that particular psychic fair again. Last I heard about that guy is that he was dying of cancer. As above, so below.

As you know, you CAN channel… and you will only be able to channel what you are capable of handling. If you are not very spiritually developed, it is possible to bring in a very high-vibration being (whether entity, angel, alien or ascended master) to begin with, but that being will eventually get tired of your base behavior and turn his/her back on you, leaving the next entity to pick up the phone… and that is usually something yucky.

The old school channelers like Jane Roberts and Edgar Cayce didn’t live very long because the energies of the entities they served as the mouthpieces for, were of such high energies that their bodies burned out.  

I know people who were pretty specific about what they wanted when they did open to channel years ago, and brought in the “right being” for their level. My friend Rick Ferguson started out channeling a Rabbi named Ben back when just about everyone was channeling all the big names like Siddhartha, Jesus, Mother Mary, Moses, Athena, Zeus and so on. Rick stayed in his integrity and didn’t get into ego about anything. Later on, as all those other people that were supposedly channeling the big names started dropping off the map (from what I remember, a lot of them died), Rick began channeling Merlin the Magician… who turned out to be an aspect of the Cosmic Christ. Rick and Merlin have been together so long that they’ve merged. Rick is doing more and better stuff now than ever before, too.

I recently heard from a customer of mine out on the west coast. She said that she was receiving information from her “guides” that she was supposed to begin channeling Jesus Christ soon, so she didn’t need to study any more and they would be telling her everything she needed to know. I tuned in and dowsed to discover that the ol’ girl had aliens. Oh boy.  I tap danced short of telling her that, but I did convince her to test the heck out of these so-called “guides”. 

I recently talked to a healer who mentioned that a mutual friend had been listening to some git that claims to be channeling Edgar Cayce. This friend is pretty new to the new age stuff, and still tends to be fairly naïve about a lot of it, even though she is pretty energy sensitive.  Now… Edgar Cayce was an old-school channeler through whom a collection of beings would talk when he took a nap. Edgar would have a secretary sitting by asking questions about specific cases and taking notes as the entities yammered on. So… my friend is actually listening to someone who claims to be channeling a channeler? Not the high beings that Cayce channeled, but Cayce? Awwww man! The sad part is that she is taking directives from this git… namely putting stuff in storage so she can put her house on the market in a hurry. My friend is a pack-rat, so she has a lot of crap to stow. So far, two of the time frames this git told her have already come and gone, and my friend is still taking this person’s advice. I hope she isn’t hurt by it. At some point, she will wake up and smell the coffee. I do believe I will send her the link to this little blog.

THE MODERN WAY TO CHANNEL:

We are all familiar with Reiki… the person administering Reiki is called a “Reiki channel” because we are channeling the universal life force energy to the people we are offering the energy to… kind of like a soda straw.  We can, of course, choose to take a little for our own healing as we are bringing in these beautiful energies for the other person. A lot of us are experiencing a walking method of bringing in the advanced information we require… instead of having to give control of our bodies to some entity. We can ask our guides and angels to bring us the information we seek before we go to sleep and often we find that we got the guidance overnight, or that the correct person will walk into our lives to teach us what we need to know. Probably the single easiest way to channel, is dowsing… which is using a simple tool, getting out of your way and letting your Higher Self tell you what you need to know with the “yes” and “no” pendulum codes you set up. I use this every day in my medicine jewelry business, and the people at the local health food stores don’t even blink when you whip out a pendulum.

Buy Silver NOW!

*   Silver hit $37.83 today.
*   The power elites destroyed over 3 tons of silver in the form of 191 Tomahawk missiles that were used in Libya. Each Tomahawk missile contains some 500 ounces of silver… gone forever. Try multiplying that over all these wars. The combined cost of all these wars of occupation waged to benefit the elites is over $1 billion a day. They are throwing DU around Libya, too… their children will be born with huge birth defects, just as the children in Iraq and Afghanistan are.
*   Every one of Apple’s $1500 computers contains 1/10 of an ounce of silver. Every electronic device, from smartphones on up, contain at least a gram of silver. You do the math.
*   There is a real shortage of silver.  Worldwide production of silver is something like 550 million ounces, and the industrial demand for silver is about 880 million ounces a year.
*   There is an ongoing rumor that the U.S. Government has mortgaged chunks of U.S. lands, possibly including entire states, to China in an effort to get them to continue to buy U.S. Treasury bonds (our debt).
*  Portugal is likely about to default on the derivative debt being foisted on them by the banksters. I hope they do default because it is the only reasonable thing to do. I hope the Irish smarten-up and default.
*   Right now, Germany is the only economic powerhouse in Europe with a real export economy. They refused to join the “kinetic action” bombing Libya, along with China and Russia. Germany is likely to pull out of the E.U. and go back to printing their own money. 
*   Oil is hitting $108 right now, likely to go to $150 a barrel soon. The global supply chain is pretty fragile. Our government just took Libya’s oil off the market. Add to that the fact that Iraq’s oil has been removed from the market. The Saudis can’t get any more production out of the ground. That alone will stomp on what’s left of the U.S. economy.
*   The New York Stock Exchange was just sold to Germany’s stock exchange.
*   The Euro is going down pretty fast. Right now every central bank throughout the European Union has and is currently printing “euros”.  This will kill the euro very quickly.
*   The Japanese are already dumping U.S. treasuries on the market.. They need to raise money… probably over $600 billion to rebuild their country.  
*   JPMorgan is currently paying 60-80% premiums to people NOT to take delivery of silver purchased through them. Great if you want to risk them defaulting and leaving you holding the bag… and they will default. Every month that goes by with JPMorgan and HSBC naked short selling silver contracts, and the big metals exchanges shorting silver (at the rate of 100 to 1), costs those jerks billions and billions of dollars. All the short selling amounts to counterfeiting. At some point the shorts will have to be covered… period… and that will end their manipulation of metals markets.  Why do they manipulate metals prices like this?  Simply put, by suppressing metals prices by printing paper metals, they are propping up these fiat currencies. JPMorgan is the Federal Reserve’s bank, and the Federal Reserve is the U.S. Government’s bank. Crash JPMorgan and you will crash the Federal Reserve, and ostensibly set America (and the rest of the world) free from the banker takeover and occupation.

Gang… I don’t know of very many more ways to say this… get your assets out of paper and buy precious metals, most notably silver. Get your money out of your IRAs and 401Ks and any other retirement funds and buy metals with it. Keep only as much money in the bank as you NEED to keep in there just to pay bills. Any excess needs to be used to secure your future… stored food and water, guns and ammo, and precious metals. That’s the only safe place to be with your assets.

If you get the chance, please listen to this interview: http://sgtreport.com/2011/03/dollar-collapse-possible-within-a-few-months-on-new-technical-analysis/  The dollar is effectively toast. Another good source of technical data translated to real world terms is The International Forecaster blogsite:  http://bobchapman.blogspot.com/  Always worth a listen.

I want you to understand that every time you see a starving child, know that is was caused by an investment banker such as Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Citibank, etc. Every time you see some child that was born with catastrophic birth defects because of DU bombing, know that an investment banker was ultimately responsible for it. When you see people taking to the streets rioting over food prices, know that the investment bankers did it. We have a corporate kleptocracy that runs everything. The mass media is trying to keep you from taking the steps to protect yourself, saying things to the effect that “gold is in a bubble” and “unemployment is down” and “we’re in a recovery period”… don’t believe them. The dollar collapse could easily happen in as little as 3 to 4 months. 

That said, there is no downside to silver. Here silver is creeping up on $40 an ounce and it will likely hit $50 in maybe a month or two, and certainly $60 shortly thereafter.  As the real price inflation hits over this summer, most notably in gas prices, any money in the form of silver purchases will have been preserved. With the price manipulation removed, the prices of metals will skyrocket. There are several very real cases for $500 an ounce silver. Hyperinflation alone accounts for one version, add to that the demand by governments and individuals around the world versus actual production and you have it.

Please talk to your friends and relatives. The question is, when the currency collapses, will you be ready? Will you have enough food in the house to ride out the attendant civil unrest and disruptions in the food and fuel supply? Will you have removed your retirement savings from the reach of kleptocrats and put it into precious metals to preserve it? Will you have something to start over with on the other side of the coming dollar collapse?

A Pep Talk About This Epoch

http://www.davidicke.com/articles/media-and-appearances/34544-david-icke-and-jordan-maxwell-in-conversation-at-project-avalon

By all means, take the time out to watch this video in which David Icke and Jordan Maxwell are discussing exactly what is going on at this point in time. These fellows have been on their respective paths for decades and have heard, seen and experienced so much, and their experiences dovetail with my own experiences and those of my friends. 

In short, we are at the change of the yugas, or epochs, and the old, reptilian control systems are being broken down by we, the humans, awakening into consciousness. As we awaken, the reptilian constructs (Illuminati, Rothschilds, Bilderbergers, etc.) are going to ramp up their efforts to keep us in fear and under control. We can expect things to get really interesting in the next few years, but we have to remember who we are and the fact that they can’t control us once we wake up and refuse to allow our minds to continue to support their control systems. While protests and Tea Parties may help on some level as a show of force, the level that matters most is the one inside of us.

Take a little time out to talk to Holy Spirit, and ask that you be led where you need, be protected, be given expanded awareness, and that you will meet who you need to meet and see what you need to see. When you open up and allow yourself to listen to that still small voice, that is when the adventure begins.  That will bring you into synchronicity, listening to higher guidance, and greater levels of inspiration.

I can vouch for all of the above.  You’d be surprised at what comes across as I’m building custom jewelry for people.  I’ve written one instructional manual which I sell through my website, and I am now writing a novel which incorporates a lot of spiritual knowledge as well as some plain rowdy fun. I open to the aspect of Spirit and ask “okay, what now?” and I am given the next set of additions. In the meantime, I’ve processed through a lot of my own inner stuff while writing all of this. While I’ve been running this character in my book through the gauntlet towards setting her free, I’ve also set myself free a little at a time, right along with her.  I’m about 4/5 of the way through writing this novel, and I’m already getting into a round of brainstorming on a second novel. I can’t wait to get this first novel into the hands of a few friends for the first reading. I have had three psychics tell me that it will be greatly received because it will resonate with so many different kinds of people on so many levels. I certainly hope so.  If I can come up with a tool to assist people in waking up, I consider it a true service to humanity.

Proper Smudging Technique for Clearings

I just noticed that, even though I have always included instructions on how to do a proper Tobacco Ceremony on my assorted blogs and my electronic books, I somehow forgot to include these important instructions on my blogsite for easy access.

If you are one of a score or more of people who have contacted me asking for help in dealing with the negative side of the paranormal, I have likely either instructed you by e-mail, coaching you over the phone, or I just sent you the PDF of my e-book, “Fat-Free Spirituality” so you could get it for yourself.  I’d rather coach people to do it for themselves, thereby empowering them to help others. The ol’ spoon-feeding syndrome isn’t good for the collective consciousness.

When the typical person comes to the realization that they really are being haunted, it is normal to panic. So much of so-called “western civilization” is geared around denial of the spirit world and higher dimensions. Most people start their search for paranormal help by reaching out to clergy only to be rebuffed or told to find a psychiatrist… and it is a sobering experience after a lifetime of mainstream religious indoctrination to realize that the support isn’t a two-way street. The next thing most people do nowadays is to get on the internet… which is where most people find me. Yes, I do get referrals from members of various friends and paranormal research groups. I prefer to empower people through instruction, but some folks are too scared to attempt the D.I.Y. approach, at which point I will offer to do a cleansing, whether by remote or in person, for a modest fee.

In getting the background on the haunting activity, I usually tune in and check for the presence of geopathic phenomena, and I always ask whether there is use of prescription medications, alcohol or pot in the household.

The first stage of clearing is e-mailing the person the “White Light” symbol from the Joray tradition, to print out on both paper or on Avery label stock for them grid their house by slapping the symbol to the ceilings of closets, behind every picture on the walls, and preferably stapled to the inside of the roof facing down into the house from the attic. The symbol takes the house to a higher court and typically makes any ghosts very uncomfortable… it is serving them “notice of eviction”.

The next thing to do is prepare to “smudge”, which is a Native American technique. You need a sage and cedar smudge stick for this. If you can’t find one of these locally, you can either order them on-line or from me. You will need to hold something underneath that smudge stick so you don’t spread embers as you walk through the house… most use an abalone shell, but a salad plate with work perfectly.

Smudging is typically my second stage of clearing. Once you have the basic implements ready, you crack open the front door, make a prayer (out loud) invoking your angels and ascended masters to come in and assist you, then light the cedar and sage smudge stick.  You begin by going to the back of the house smudging each room in a clockwise circle, while talking to the ghosts. Tell the ghosts that this is your home and that they have to leave it, preferably to go into the Light since they are no longer in physical form. Keep smudging and talking until you’ve chased them out the front door. In multi-level houses the smudging must be repeated on each floor, again, working from the back of the house forward until they are chased out the front door. It is especially important to point out that ghosts like to hide in the in-between places such as attics, air conditioning intake vents, stairways and closets, so these must also be smudged. When you are done, close the front door and “seal” that door by smudging it in a clockwise motion. All of these actions must be done with focused INTENT. More advanced spiritual practitioners will talk with such entities and then walk them into the Light to make sure they get there.

The third stage of clearing is doing “Tobacco Ceremony” both outside and inside the house. I prefer doing outside first because it has a pressure cooker effect.

The fourth stage of clearing is to do an energy clearing on anyone in the household. Any etheric cords must be cut, their energy field must be cleansed, and any chakras have to be unblocked. The first thing that most poltergeists do is “slime” people’s head chakras to keep them from realizing the ghosts are there.

Historical Value of Silver…

Those of you who still do not understand the need to get your money out of the increasingly dangerous “banking system”, please take the 7 minutes to watch this short video: http://maxkeiser.com/2012/02/01/960-silver/  which details the traditional role of silver in the world economy. 

Translated into post-dollar real world terms, or ancient world terms… medieval or even colonial America terms… a silver coin about the size of a dime has been the standard for a day’s hard work for thousands of years.   The video explains that silver was always carrying money, used for everyday purchases by the common man… that dime-sized coin represented a 12 hour day of hard labor at minimum wage using crude implements and your own raw muscle power, whether you were a farmer or factory worker or a soldier in the Roman Legion. A man was able to rear his family on such wages since ancient times and the invention of money.

Think about that.

Forget about the spot price of precious metals. Forget about dollars and euros.  Forget about all fiat currency.  Forget about Social Security.  We’re talking about your hard work and your ability to afford the necessities of life: a roof over your head and food on the table.  A silver dime… 1/10th of an ounce… is defined classically as a day’s pay. One ounce of silver is 10 day’s sustenance.  The fifty-dime roll of Mercury or Roosevelt dimes is fifty days’ sustenance.  The plastic roll container of 20 one-ounce silver rounds from the local bullion dealer is 200 days’ pay.  What does it cost in dollars to support your household minimally nowadays for 200 days?  $30,000? More?

So… at least spend some money… forego eating out for a few weeks and buy a few rolls of 90% silver U.S. coins. http://www.steelcitycopper.com/store/page22.html  has them for about $30 cheaper than APMEX. I also order their copper bullion rounds, too.  I’m not getting anything from these people… I just order from them periodically. Compare prices and keep stacking silver whenever you can.

Look… Social Security is pretty much already gone and the government is already raiding federal pension funds, and it won’t be long before they “nationalize” 401Ks and IRAs to take our retirement savings away from the rest of us. We know that the euro is going down fast and the dollar won’t be far behind.  We know that every government that ever went the route of currency devaluation and hyperinflation has always gone nuts with the corrupt police state while plundering everything on the way down the toilet.  They will take everything from you if you let them… they always do.

Right now people are only just starting to wake up to how they’ve been ripped off, and they still don’t understand how badly.  I read about how in Sicily, the people (who have had all their guns taken from them) have taken to the streets with pitchforks in protest of the “austerity measures” foisted on them because their government bailed out the bankers and put the bailout money onto their country’s balance sheets. People know they did nothing to incur that debt. In Greece they are seeing their publically held assets, from all those picturesque little islands to the Parthenon, sold off to bankers for pennies on the dollar. Those who are aware have already converted their fiat currency into precious metals and have left the cities.   

Forget about politics; it doesn’t matter whether republican or democrat, the behavior and methodology is always the same. The politicians have been bought off, and will keep spending while driving the country (and the world) into the dust. They are doing this for the bankers and big companies that have bought them off.  The U.S. debt to GDP ratio has already topped 100%… basically all the taxes we citizens are paying into the system are going to the bankers that have conspired with the politicians to loot the economy and create the police state to keep us at bay as they consolidate their power… their ability to have us toiling away on their plantations or dying in their concentration camps.

The only way to preserve your wealth is to have it in precious metals and arable farm land.

Timing for Preparedness…

Okay… China just put us on notice that beginning this September, they will only accept Chinese currency for all transactions taking place for Chinese goods and services. China also quit buying any more U.S. T-bills (our debt). China is jockeying for their currency to become the world’s reserve currency.  That means, the dollar is OUT.

Just a couple days ago, Bill Gross, the manager of the biggest bond fund in the world, PIMCO, got rid of all U.S. government  related securities, citing that the yield is too low to bother with. Again… not a good thing.

Billionaire hedge fund manager Carl Icahn just quit the game. He is returning outside investors’ capital… $1.76 billion of it… because the dollar and the volatility of the market have made managing other peoples’ money too much of a headache. This guy has a long track record for picking winning stocks, and now he’s getting out of the game… there’s something to think about. There’s been a steady string of these heavy-hitters leaving the biz. It isn’t the end of the party, but rather the steady stream of people leaving early to avoid the traffic. They’re getting out while the stock market is up.

Government bonds around the world are paying higher interest just to get people to keep investing in their ponzi schemes… for as long as they can keep the scam going. 10 year Irish bonds are now above 9%, Greek bonds are running 12%, Portuguese bonds are above 7%.  Basically it is all about risk versus yield.  This is sending retirement funds into these shady markets looking for the high yields to make up for what they lost to the real estate derivatives melt-down.  Municipal bonds all over the U.S. are defaulting… mostly because they no longer have the tax base to pay back the principal, much less the interest.  Basically… you really want to stay out of the bond market.

We’re at a point where both stocks and bonds are down. The only thing pushing the stock market up right now is the sheer amount of the money supply… the money the Federal Reserve keeps pumping into the banks to play around with. It won’t stay that way very long. 

Notice how the U.S. and the French and the British are all talking about military action on Libya… establishing a “no-fly zone” and sending in troops. And they have been taking Qaddafi assets stored abroad!  There is a lot of saber-rattling going on… in the name of humanitarian aid… yeah, right.  Call it what it is… yet another front in the globalist junta’s wars against humanity. They want the oilfields in the Middle East shut down and they want oil to go to $200 a barrel and higher. 

Currency wars turn into trade wars, and trade wars turn into hot wars. A chunk of the chatter that’s been coming down the pike from NSA, DHS and various local police sources is that the government is actively putting police and military on active alert for “something”… underground bases, and how a fuel crisis will likely be handled. If you get the chance, listen to Steve Quayle and Greg Evenson wargaming the worst case scenarios.   http://mp3.oraclebroadcasting.com/Intel_Hub/Intel_Hub.2011-03-07_16k.mp3   Yeah, it’s spooky as all get-out.

On top of that, given the fact that the dollar will no longer be accepted by China this fall, a caller to the Alex Jones show commented that an acquaintance of his that works for a Chinese company has been crunching the numbers and doing the analysis, and saying that things are going to start becoming unraveled here in August… that’s about 5 months, max. 

Basically, you’ve got about 5 months to get your ducks in order… but please don’t wait.  Prices on most commodities are going up quickly. Shop the closeouts, load up on every single thing your family will need, from pantry basics, spices, canned goods, and freeze-dried foods for long-term storage, to all the other things you will need for several months: toiletries, medicines and bullets. Take advantage of this time frame to get out of paper and into real physical commodities. 

Silver went above $36 last week and is now hovering in the $35 range for a little while before going up another dollar. It’s been in the $35 range for over two weeks. The only way you will be able to preserve your wealth is by purchasing physical silver and gold. When the manipulation by the bullion banks and JP Morgan and HSBC is finally at an end, we will be looking at the gold to silver ration closing the gap quickly. Gold could go to $2,000+by the end of this year, and silver will easily go to $50+ very quickly.   The availability of silver is already drying up.

I realize there are still people out there that don’t understand the concept of trading your fiat currency for metals… let me spell it out for you. You buy the metals now, while you can.  After the fiat currency collapses, you can sell those precious metals for whatever the currency of the realm will be at whatever the exchange rate will be after the melt-down.  So… if your gold piece is now worth $1,400 and your normal load of groceries is around $200, and on the other side of the melt-down the gold piece will trade for 6,000 of the new currency… whether its bancor or yuan, then that’s what you will get to go shopping for your groceries… and that $200 load of groceries will probably run you $856 at that time… and you will want to spend every bit of what you got in exchange for your piece of gold before the money goes bad.  Basically, when the currency is worthless, your metals will preserve your wealth.  Anyone who can’t understand that isn’t long for this world.

Astrology for the Next Couple of Years

I went to my friend and astrologer, Enola Dominiak, for a reading to see what was up in my chart and in general. This was back in November 2009, and I was experiencing a dry spell business-wise (a lot of people were), along with an incredible urge to write. 

Enola is a real expert… she can look at your chart from any of 6 different astrological schools and give you the scenarios. A few years back, she looked at one aspect in my chart and told me that “a mother figure” would either get really sick or die sometime that November or December… it turned out, my mother-in-law died on November 20th of a heart attack… really sudden. That’s how good she is. If you want to avail yourself of her services, her number is 713-503-1574.

Okay, now on to this year.  Enola saw no economic improvement until fall of 2010… this year. We are going to be seeing some MAJOR SHIFTS because for the next 3 years we are under the influence of Saturn in Libra. Saturn is exhalted, or empowered, in Libra. Saturn is the teacher of the zodiac, and Libra is a cardinal sign. This is a very forceful, aggressive aspect.  This is all about “relationships”… friends, lovers, employers, business relationships, and so forth, and all of these relationships will be changing  depending on how they all relate to Saturn in their charts.

One thing she stated is that we have to be very careful about staying out of negativity while Saturn is in Libra, because Saturn will give us what we think about. This is a critical spot in the global and personal balancing act.

Enola voiced concern that there was the probability of violence in the larger world and relationships, as in we-the-people regarding our government. We’re already seeing vandalism directed at members of congress as a result of their vote for ObamaCare. As the economy continues melting down with inflation and job losses, people may very well become agitated and militant. Witness the Tea Party movement now.

Other than that, the rest of 2010 looks interesting enough, astrologically speaking:  Mercury goes retrograde April 18-May 11,  then August 20-September 12, then again December 10-30th.  Venus goes retrograde October 8- November 18th… that’s in Libra… ouch.  Mars had been retrograde  since December 20th, 2009 and finally went direct on March 10th, 2010… if you noticed that not much was moving, that is one reason why.  Jupiter, the Santa Claus of the zodiac, goes retrograde from July 23-November 18… you can expect sales to be slow during this period… and remember, that goes along with a Mercury retrograde.  Saturn is now retrograde from January 13-May 30th… the teacher is revisiting some lessons to make sure we got them down pat, or we will receive a smack with the ruler. Chiron is retrograde from June 4 – November 5th… look at both your physical health and the inner health issues carefully, because they will be up in your grille.  Uranus is retrograde from July 5-December 5th… since Uranus is the divine rebel, it has to do with individualism and rapid change, so I think we will be seeing some real interesting stuff with Uranus revisiting the issues and sitting on them to make us look at them. Neptune is retrograde from May 31-November 7th… that has to do with the urge to escape limitations, living an ideal, and unity… things could get interesting over the summer.  Pluto is retrograde from April 6-September 14th… Pluto is all about transformation, evolutionary growth, elimination, power, control, the surging masses, and… transition (death).  

For me, personally, this is a time of laying down the foundations and doing some major introspection work.  When my brother who died at the end of February, was finally buried on the 19th of March, I spent a chunk of time processing rage… classic Chiron issues. I basically spent most of my childhood and teens in an unsupportive, competitive and antagonistic environment, with my brother the main reason for the turmoil, and my parents feeding it by refusing to deal with it… in fact, they didn’t start addressing my brother as an issue until 2 years after I had launched out of their house. I have to heal that in order to heal the rest of my body and drop the armor on my tummy. Enola says I came in with this anger from a past life. I am also likely to have a kundalini awakening this year. I do have a lot of good stuff going on in my chart, though.

At the threshold of 2012…

Well… here it is the 20th of December and I just watched an hour long  hatchet-job regarding 2012 on one of the MSNBC channels.  The female voice-over overlooked no opportunity to ridicule the various seers and authors, merchants, real estate developers and what-not who are preparing for some disaster or chain of disasters that are supposed to hit during 2012, culminating on December 21st, 2012.  So… according to this program, if you follow your gut feeling, spiritual guidance or instincts, you’re a nutter. If you store food or whatever, you’re nuts. If you take steps to look after the safety and welfare of your family, you’re a nut. Everyone they examined, they viewed with derision.

Okay… that’s just fine. Those of us who do listen to that still, small voice within are making preparations, whether simply “getting right with God” or taking the preparations to the next several levels by getting their assets out of the financial system (and away from the crooked bankers), storing food and perhaps going the whole way towards self-sufficiency.

Truth is, I know a lot of people that have cashed out their pensions and 401-Ks and bought farms, precious metals and an assortment of survival gear, and every time the stock market dips again, they feel that much better about their decisions.  I also know a lot of people that are waking up and beginning to smell the funk of a dying financial system, and they’re finally asking questions.  Just about everyone I know is doing their best to coach the people around them to get started on “prepping”, and they each have someone near and dear that is completely buried in the normalcy bias.  My older sister, the one with the most to lose, is one of them… she often cannot find an extra can of Ro-Tel in the house, much less enough food to last two weeks.  All I can say is try to look at what is going on and dig around for alternative news sources. The mainstream media is dedicated to making sure you keep your money where the banksters can steal it from you.

Between the crashing economy and the fear emanating from so many sources, people are waking up. For a lot of us, fear is the beginning of awakening. I remember my own initial awakening… it started with the knowledge of Earth changes and looking at the Gordon Michael Scallion maps. Fear is actually a good place to start. As you educate yourself and make preparations, you replace that fear with confidence.  You can have some assembled tools and supplies to help you through it all.  When the crash takes place, a lot of people are going to be caught flat-footed… life will be painful for them, and there are going to be a lot of them.

So… we have from so many different sources that 2012 is the big one. Pastor Lindsey Williams says, among other things, that there will be many, many obvious manifestations of the Divine, even as the elites do everything they can to crash the world financial system and bring humanity to its knees.  He says that the reason that 2000 passed with nothing going on is because it had to be on the 12th year of the new millennium… because Jesus’ bar-mitzvah was in his 12th year and he immediately set about his Father’s work at that point.  That is the reason why 2012 is the big one… it is our collective bar-mitzvah… and probably our bris as well.  We’ll be seeing much evidence of God’s presence. While we won’t see the Rapture, or be rescued from disaster, we will have God’s presence with us, even as God remained with Shadrach, Mechach and Abednego in the firey furnace, or God stayed with Daniel in the lions’ den. We won’t  be kept out of the difficulty, but we won’t be left to languish alone.

Truth is, the elites (that top 2% of the top 1%) know they’re not going to be in power for much longer, so they’ve ramped up their agenda.  So far only about 80% of all the world’s wealth has been transferred to the elites through the banking system and governments.  They want it all.  These psychotics won’t stop until all of humanity is scared, homeless, broke, sick, starving and defenseless.  I say we won’t let them.  There are a lot of us and few of them.  They depend on us… not so much the other way around.  Truth is… the elite are huffing their last breaths as they grasp at everything on their way down.  We know who they are, and the banksters and politicians will be the first up against the wall when the revolution finally comes. The other elites will be hunted down.

A lot of the military have already stood down because they refused to follow orders that were unconstitutional; most recently a National Guard unit that refused to fill out a questionnaire as to whether or not they’d be willing to fire upon civilians. An organization called Oathkeepers is working to make certain that the young soldiers will uphold the constitution, according to their oath. We can fully expect the military and police around the world to throw down their arms as they realize that after they’ve rounded up the civilians, they will be next to die in the death camps. Only a psychotic would round up and abuse people and not expect to be next after the rest are gone.

In Thomas Mails’ book, The Hopi Survival Kit, he outlines a lot of things. The first of which is to get yourself and your priorities straight, then to study and pick up as much knowledge as you can in order to get along.  God won’t save us as all these world-wide systems are breaking down, but God will be with us the whole way as we go through the process of giving birth to a new world.   As Mails says, “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.”   We are God’s presence on the new Earth.

Thing is… it doesn’t have to involve suffering. We can do things to make the transition into this new world better. We know we cannot count on government or anyone else to look after us. We can take some steps to cover our bases and provide for our own table, and hopefully have enough to share.

I expect trouble, so I prepare for it… but I really do hope and pray for the best.

Feeling Hopeful…

Silver is at $26.17.

If you want to get an injection of hope… and have an intellectual basis for it, by all means give Webster Tarpley a listen http://tarpley.net He explains things in a very clear manner that actually takes a little of the cloud off your shoulders.

Tarpley’s latest takes on the economy from outside of the U.S. dovetails nicely with what a number of other sources have told Alex Jones on his show, http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel including Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster and Max Keiser.

I’ll break it all down for you in a nutshell:
Forget about the elections and pay attention to China, Russia, Brazil and the other BRIC countries… they are playing the economy by a different set of rules… which is old-school mercantilism like the U.S. used to have, combined with a certain amount of protectionism against hot currencies (like the U.S. dollar). This is the same set of rules that the U.S. abandoned to retool its ecomony away from manufacturing real things of value and towards manufacturing derivatives and debt out of thin air.

The U.S. Federal Reserve… the cabal of private bankers that’s created the current economic trainwreck we’re experiencing… has just announced another round of “quantitative easing”, which means printing more money to debase our currency. We may very well be staring at losing at least 25% of our money’s value by the end of this year, if not this month (according to the Half Past Human web bot project) then certainly in the next couple of months. Since it takes 2 years for a round of money-printing to manifest inflation, we are now starting to see the inflation created by the TARP bailouts hitting, along with the other couple of trillion in “stimulus” that’s been dealt us.

These other countries are refusing to buy U.S. T-bills (our debt) and have erected the beginnings of barriers against our currency being brought into their countries. They refuse to be left holding the bag on all of this artificial derivatives debt that our government purchased from the U.S. Fed. Brazil is charging 6% for exchanging dollars. These countries are all also actively engaging in “competitive devaluation” to compete with the dollar in the global commodities export markets. China is doing theirs a lot slower than anyone else, though. Pay attention to China… they just cut a deal with the Russians to buy their oil, and the contract has no dollar delineated amount… they plan on using a completely different currency as the exchange rate. The dollar is already being written out of everything.

China quit exporting metals, particularly those of the rare earth type. When China approaches other countries, they say something like, “We need your oil, and we’ll help you to extract it, but in exchange, we can also help you with what you need here… roads, bridges, power plants… and we won’t interfere with your government.” What a deal! As you know, when the U.S. inserts itself into another country’s affairs, it insists on running that country, and if that country won’t go along willingly, something can be staged to warrant an invasion and occuation force. We already have what looks like the beginnings of an attempt to take over Yemen. Why? Look at where it’s located… right there at the ass-end of the Arabian peninsula, where all those ships full of oil have to pass on their way to China. I’m sure I’m not the only one that’s noticed this.

So what does all of this really mean? In a nutshell… the Euro-American elites are LOSING if they haven’t already lost outright. Nobody is playing their game. In an international game of musical chairs, everyone else is taking their chairs and going home, leaving them without a pilfered chair. Their damage and plunder will at least be limited, and they’ll likely be stuck holding their own bag of toxic derivative poo, unable to pawn it off onto anyone else. With a little divine intervention, these satanists can be removed from having any further influence. There’s the hope for you… justice.

And what about the new congress? If Neil Boehner, Rand Paul and Ron Paul will get their doo-dah together and start laying down the frameworks of some meaningful rollbacks of bad legislation, things could very well turn around. Making Obama prove he is qualified to occupy the office of the presidency as stated in the constitution would certainly help. We have Obama saying himself on film that he was born in Kenya… that alone, taken into a court of law, disqualifies him and nullifies every piece of legislation he ever signed into law. As a lawyer, he should know the law… and having ignored it, he should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of federal law… if he can’t produce a birth certificate, the guy is looking at prison. Lying… perjury… under these special circumstances means that he’s done a lot of harm. He’s certainly made a laughing stock of America.

Would that make a lot of difference? Probably not in the larger scheme of things, though it would probably restore rule of law and integrity. If the new congress really wants to make a difference, they’d also go after Bush/Cheney/Rumsfield for the staged 9-11 terror events and their nonexistent excuses to go to war on Afghanistan and Iraq. They secretly plunged the U.S. into debt and in doing so oversaw the single biggest transfer of wealth directly to the global elites. Time to deal with these criminals. We can restore confidence in the U.S. and its currency by prosecuting the criminals in our midst.

Sam’s Club Dropped the Ball

I’m a firm believer in bulk buying. Why buy a little bag of rice when you can get a big bag for almost the same price and suck-wrap the excess for future consumption?  Why buy a small block of toilet paper when you can get a big one that will last you for a whole month at a lower per-roll price? Why buy cheese, bacon, apples or whatever at the grocery store when you can get twice as much for the same price at a wholesale club? Granted, we’re in a two-person house, and our consumption level is fairly low, but we really do see the savings in buying bulk and repackaging it.

I’ve been a Sam’s Club member/customer for decades now and I’ve gotten to the point where they almost have nothing for me any more. Sam’s, like WalMart, is carrying fewer lines, less variety, and lower quality… and it is getting worse. The whole thing’s been going downhill since Sam Walton died. The new management is a little too tough on vendors, and when they can’t meet the new pricing requirements, the management cuts them off from both Sam’s and WalMart.  The result is fewer product offerings and lower quality.

Add to this, the fact that they are attempting to go for a different market segment… the Hispanic community… with a new store called MAS. Get it? MAS is SAM backwards.  I found an article about it: http://www.reuters.com/article/idUSTRE49R3ZV20081028    One is on I-45 North here in Houston. Okay… the first thing I’m going to question is why they are doing this when WalMart is already catering to this market segment… if you don’t believe me, look around next time you’re in there. The second thing I will question is how do they expect to sell memberships to a community that typically doesn’t buy memberships, and… how to put this delicately… depending on immigration status, doesn’t like to sign up for anything?  Of course, that’s their experiment.

Now for the GOOD NEWS:  Last weekend I drove a few miles out of my way to see a place called CostCo. My main hangup with the place is that there aren’t very many around. I have to drive down to the Katy Freeway at Bingle or north to Willowbrook Mall to find one of these places. I gotta tell you… it is worth the drive!  Prices overall may be 2% higher than Sam’s Club, but they more than make up for it in sheer variety! Whoo boy!  They have a large selection of organic everything! Organic and gluten-free product offerings.

I saw a 5 Lb. bag of organic quinoa for $8, which is a much better price than I can get on-line. I picked up two pack of 23 oz. organic blue agave nectar for $7.49… about what you’d pay for one of them! I got a two-pack of 28 oz. organic peanut butter for $7.79. I picked up a huge 26 oz. jar of organic almond butter for $5.99.  I loaded up on dried figs, cashew clusters and tropical dried fruit mix to snack on.

Here’s the cool thing… go to their website on-line… http://www.costco.com  Now go under their food section and check out their emergency food kits.  You can pick up a freeze-dried vegetable variety pack with 264 servings that will last 25 years for only $84.99.  They offer a freeze-dried fruit pack for $130.  Mountain House freeze-dried food packs featuring full meals that you only add hot water to, and even an emergency garden seed kit for $50.  When you order on-line, the shipping is supposed to be free… I was told that when I got my membership at the store.

Paranormal Activity in Relation to Interpersonal Issues

Back on Thursday the 11th I got a phone call from a lady who had a full-blown poltergeist haunting that was clearly making her miserable… she initially called looking for my shop, and I explained the nature of my business. Sharon found my website and wanted a Defunker.  I asked what was going on and it turned out that she was in distress, wasn’t getting any sleep because an entity kept trying to rape her repeatedly. It was also effecting her ability to handle basic business. She had run through her unemployment compensation and was having trouble getting employment for the first time in her life.

This had been going on for some months “beginning last March” and she was essentially at the end of her rope. She had brought in a total of four different clergy, including her religious denomination’s bishop, for a total of three visits… the third time, they told her that this was coming from within her and they couldn’t do anything about it… they abandoned her saying that she was wigging out because of the stress of being unemployed. She was devastated at this abandonment. I told her that I wasn’t really surprised. I sent her the Joray “White Light” symbol and my “Fat-Free Spirituality” PDF book to read so she could “get it for herself”. I gave her instructions to print out the symbol and slap it anywhere, particularly any “in-between” areas and behind every possible picture on the walls, under the bed and so forth to grid the place.

On Saturday the 13th I went to handle the cleansing of her apartment on Richmond. It was hot out… in the 90s. The grass was getting parched. I asked her lots of questions about how things had gotten to where they are. Of course there were some layers involved. I got that there were no real geopathic difficulties in that particular building, but that there were more than likely some in the apartment complex and surrounding area… and that could make a difference. The longer

One situation that figured prominently was that she had worked in an office that had a very religious back-stabber that was likely doing her own version of energy work to slam anyone that posed a threat to her. Sharon was fired from that job for the first time in her life. Adding insult to injury, the recruiter that had placed her was now aloof and not really trying to assist her any more after so many years.  What happened? Sharon really felt like she had been severely interfered with by this woman.

I started by dropping a pair of Rick’s special energy tools in the center of the living room… a labyrinth disk featuring all of the 72 names of God, with the banishing side up, placed on top of a Harmony Board. I called in my angels and asked for assistance in taking this entity up into God’s Light. I lit a smudge stick, cracked the front door, and began walking around the small apartment, working from the back forwards and around every area, talking to the ghost and selling it into going into the Light. Following that, I took my pouch of “medicine mix” and performed the Tobacco Ceremony indoors, then took my Ceremony outdoors to permanently anchor God’s Light to the whole building. In a building with eight apartments, I just made it tough for anyone or anything that was not working for God’s Light to hang around that building. I checked my work with a pendulum. Sharon had laid down on her bed while I was working the outside… and was pleased that this was the first time that she hadn’t been molested in a long time. I checked to make sure the entity was indeed gone… it was.

When I finished that, I found a small stool and a little table and set up my SpaceBoard to quickly clack out any debris, entrainment, cords or whatever that might be stuck on Sharon. She felt very calm and relaxed afterward. I spent some time coaching her on the use of God’s White Light and how to use God’s Metallic Gold Light to defend herself. I also told Sharon how to send God’s Love & Light to the recruiter with a gift tag, and filling her office with that spectrum of energy as if she is physically in that office, even though she is only on the phone. Sharon isn’t one of those people who is in the victim mentality. She is accustomed to focusing on what she wants to create and seeing things fall into place because of her focus. This whole thing with the ghost and the backstabbing woman putting the whammy on her was simply and completely outside of her experience to date.

Sharon picked out a small Defunker I and also purchased a “Prosperity Ball” and an “Absolute Truth Ball”, and paid me for my time and a little tip besides.

I e-mailed on Monday to ask how everything was, and the next day I received an e-mail saying: “I have not gotten rid of the spirit yet. Saturday night I had an unexpected major attack, Sunday night I had a mild attack, last night I had a mild attack. I guess I’ll just continue to pray.”

I called and coached her on handling things. She used the Defunker to ward the critter off but was still under attack. I told her she needed to have that “Absolute Truth Ball” with her in bed to provide a clean field all the way around her as she slept. I pointed her to some of the passages in the PDF book I had sent her and went over it with her. I told her that I would do some absentia work on her place that evening.

I tuned in and, yes the previous ghost really was gone, but another different one had come in to take its place… kind of like getting rid of a bad boyfriend, but still having to deal with his jerk friends afterwards. This particular entity had apparently been waiting on the sidelines for an opening.

For good measure, I consulted with a psychic friend who tuned in and confirmed this, saying that these two ghosts had followed her from several lifetimes back, and that I needed to erase what she called a “vapor trail” from that other abusive ghost that was still attached to Sharon, and probably brought this one in, and possible another one after this one leaves. Kind of like how an ex-heroine addict can smell heroine on another person. This second ghost was not the least bit comfortable being in that building since I had done Ceremony to anchor God’s Light to the place, but it apparently had nowhere else to go. I did the energy work that evening, filling the whole apartment with God’s White Light.

She called saying that it bothered her some more, but it was greatly diminished as to be more of a nuisance. She called the problem at 95% corrected. I told her that this is really more of a good thing for her, because she is learning how to deal with these things on her own. The whole experience is ultimately empowering and she can take the knowledge with her anywhere.

Later on the 26th she reported that she is doing well. Sharon is keeping the back-stabber boxed in God’s Gold Light to limit any further interference, and Sharon’s recruiter is pleased to be working with her once again and is beating the bushes for other assignments. She’ll be just fine.

We Have the Power!

I feel so heartened and encouraged right now.

Right now… the pushback against the TSA gate-rape tyranny is gaining steam. Some 23 airports have kicked the TSA out, opting to do the security screening themselves.  The airports and airlines are suffering greatly decreased sales, which is our main way of telling them that this violation of our 4th Amendment right against unreasonable search and seizure is patently unacceptable.  Everyone responds to the power of the purse strings!
Oklahoma City Airport is considering it at this time.  The police in San Mateo county, CA are actively staking out San Francisco International Airport to catch TSA gropers.  The TSA is not law enforcement, they don’t have the jurisdiction to do what they’ve been doing, so if they grope a person’s genitals over the clothes, it is a midemeanor, but if they dive inside your clothing, it is a FELONY.
In this: http://www.prisonplanet.com/nyc-legislators-seek-ban-on-full-body-scanners-in-new-york.html New York is now proposing legislation against the naked body scanners.

Now… if you would like to spend a couple of hours feeling encouraged and empowered, by all means look at Max Keiser’s website:  http://maxkeiser.com    His “Crash JPMorgan, Buy Silver” campaign has gone viral, and lots of astonishly young people are posting videos on YouTube showing their silver collections while encouraging everyone else to buy physical silver NOW to keep JPMorgan, HSBC, COMEX, CME, and the other financial terrorists from being able to get it to cover their shorts.  The banksters only have until sometime in December to cover those shorts.  If these evil bankers have to go out onto the open market to get silver, they will be put out of business. 

This really stands to be a watershed event in the patriotic pushback against the global elites.  The cool thing is that us little people will make money while crashing these banksters!  Right now, silver is $27.36 spot, which is way below what it should be.  Please encourage everyone you know to head down to their local coin dealer and buy at least one silver round just to get it off the market.  With the metals manipulators out of the game, the true market price of gold, silver, platinum and palladium will take over, meaning that each ounce of silver could easily be worth over $500 in a short amount of time. If you want to regain the losses your 401K took as these financial terrorists screwed the stock markets, this is the way to do it.  If you want to play keep-away from the federal goverment’s grab of your savings, this is the way to do it. If you want to preserve your wealth in the face of probable hyperinflation, here is your opportunity to not only survive, but to thrive. This is a unique opportunity to use your money for the betterment of mankind and make money while doing it!

Each ounce of silver you buy right now is a bullet to JPMorgan and a nail in their coffin. Time to take down these vampires!

Frickin’ Demagogue Wannabes

Okay… being a Wiccan does not make you a witch, or vice-versa.  Having been trained for any length of time by a “medicine man” does not make you a “medicine man/woman”.  Going on a vision quest (or whatever) doesn’t make you a shaman.  Having a past-life memory is not a basis for going out and teaching some ill-considered, poorly researched, half-assed course at some new age center. Owning a tarot deck does not make you a psychic reader. Running around with a bunch of expensive electronic equipment does not make you a “paranormal researcher” or a “ghost-buster”.  Owning an auto-focus snapshot camera does not make you a professional photographer, either. 

I run into people claiming to be “this and that” all the time, particularly in new age/metaphysical circles.  I’ve also noticed that many of these people seem to be on psychiatric medication.  I’m serious.  It is a shame that they apparently don’t have enough self-esteem to stand on their own, or enough integrity to do the research and gain the knowledge. I realize that all these claims come from a basis of desiring to be “special” or to stand out from the crowd. Perhaps it is the appeal of assumed authority without any responsibility attached. 

What’s bad is that these sillies occasionally take the newbies (newly awakened) for a ride, often setting them back in their developmental journey.  Of course the flip side of that is the lesson of discernment. Life is, after all, one big-ass classroom.  All I can say is “keep your scopes up, kids.” I’ll try to illustrate this set of my pet peeves. 

When you claim yourself as “this or that”, expect people to watch you and eventually challenge you. I ran into one woman who claimed to be a medicine woman and practicing witch, among other things.  Well… she’s on psychiatric medication, she’s physically sick, her kid is in permanent custody of her ex-in-laws because she pulled a few too many dramatic episodes on them, she cannot hang onto a committed relationship for more than a year or so, she’s a sex-addict, she’s always hurting for money, and she’s perpetually unemployed. She wants to start her own craft business, but wouldn’t work a major festival (for a commission on what she sold) with a friend who is an established vendor. The networking opportunity alone would have been worth her while.  She enjoys playing the victim and sluffing-off responsibility.  Now, does this sound like someone who is in control of her life/reality?  Would you really want this person for a teacher and what would you expect this person to teach you?  Well… actually she really is in control of her reality… but she doesn’t realize it.  I guess that’s the point. She hasn’t recognized the patterns she is in.  That’s not a “medicine woman” that’s a woman on medicine. There is a difference. 

Working so many psychic fairs over the years, I’ve run into at least 4 readers who are on psychiatric medications, which says a lot for their level of development. How much of what they would have to say in a reading would you be willing to accept?  Some try to teach classes and give lectures… usually something that’s already been packaged. Some simply cannot hold a regular job. I know people who really make their living doing readings, and they’re damn good at it. It’s a whole different ballgame when a “reader” is simply trying to make some pocket change to supplement their disability payment. A good way to spot these is their assumed names.  People with integrity don’t require an alter ego to do business.

Another good way to spot a fake is to look for a bunch of fancy terminology with no real effort to explain it. A sales pitch for their upcoming megabucks course is not an appropriate explanation. The more jargon they hide behind, the more likely it will cost a lot of money to learn what the hell it is they’re talking about, and it will likely be the same old bullshit repackaged and perfumed. There are several sparkling examples of this in the Houston area. One woman literally repackaged the old “Flower of Life” merkaba course, selling it as the “Breath of Light”.   When a newbie brings up one of their names, I ask whether the mumbo-jumbo jargon puzzled them.  

When looking at a possible teacher, look at the level of drama and/or quality of their life. Are they calm and serene? Are they manic and desperate? How do they react to adversity?  Is this what you want to emulate?  Can they teach you something, or will you be the teacher?  You’d be surprised at how many times I’ve given the answer to a question that a teacher couldn’t.

Granted, we’re all teachers and we’re all students. Each of us starts with a little piece of the puzzle and we have to find a way to put it all together. I’d say it’s a matter of avoiding the detours while learning the game.

Perimenopausal Helpers

As above, so below. Lately I’ve been fielding a lot of questions from my customers about how to fix perimenopause/menopause symptoms.  For some time now I’ve been doing battle with perimenopause. In my case, the symptoms have to do with my actual period… super-heavy to the point of filling adult urinary diapers, and very painful at that. I’m not kidding. A lot of women will go to their doctor hoping for help. I can tell you that the average medical response is to do a hysterectomy. My sister did that and the friggin’ doctor ripped EVERYTHING out… didn’t even leave her an ovary!  Okay… if it is fibroids, yes they can make things more difficult, but the fibroids leave when your uterine lining thins out for menopause. Same thing about endometriosis.
If you want to get rid of the fibroids… get the Essiac Tea. Herbal Healer Academy http://www.herbalhealer.com  sells the tea in bulk, liquid concentrate and capsules. It will take a long time, but it will work. A friend of mine with really big fibroids took this route… it took about two years to get them to totally go away drinking this tea twice a day. It works. The tea is also good for combatting just about any infection! If you feel a cold coming on, get into the Essiac!
If you find yourself waking up with the “night sweats” start taking an herb called Black Cohosh right before bed. I started taking 2 capsules of it before I turn in and have not been waking up with the sweats. I find this very impressive.
Another herb, called Dong Quai, is also called “women’s ginseng”. I’m trying this one out now. It is known to balance hormonal levels at all stages of life, eliminating PMS, perimenopause and menopausal symptoms, while providing benefits for overall health.
 
Another herb, Fo-Ti, is a youth herb… and you will need 3 capsules with each meal… really helps your energy level. I won’t do without this one. It is a youth herb… look up the history. If you take this plus two of the Swanson Vitamins Gelatin & Silicon supplement with each meal, your hair will come in thicker and darker, with a lot less gray. No kidding.
UPDATE:  Been taking the Donq Quai, 2 caps with each meal, along with 2 caps of the Fo-Ti with each meal, and along with the Black Cohosh, I have just had the smoothest, nicest period I’ve had in perhaps 8 years! I have found the right combination!
The herb Sarsaparilla to replace progesterone… perhaps up to 3 capsules with each meal.
Since most of the weight gain, sleep disruption and stress during the shift into menopause stresses the adrenals, you need adrenal support. A simple solution is Red Clover, either in capsules or in tea form, or Ashwagandha, which additionally aids in weight loss.
 
Yet another FOOD herb called Maca boosts and optimizes the entire endocrine system, and most people feel it first in the sex drive. It isn’t an herb so much as a FOOD. You will take several tablespoons of this each day. Check around for it in loose form… you’ll go nuts trying to take that many capsules. Try making a smoothie with bananas and throwing the Maca in it each morning. You’ll know when to back off when you start looking at doorknobs and other odd objects in regard for their sexual gratification potential… I’m not kidding. 
 
The supplements Pregnenolone and DHEA, which are precursors to the progesterone, estrogen and testosterone. I know ladies in their 70s that take up to 100 mg of the pregnenolone daily, just to feel normal and have decent energy. If you are 50, you can handle up to 50 mg of Pregnenolone and up to 25 mg of DHEA.   My last period was super bad, and I had some of this in the house. I started taking them, the sarsaparilla and using the progesterone cream/spray, and it arrested the hemmoraging in ONE DAY!  You have to feel the body on this one… it can aggravate PMS symptoms short-term. I downsized the DHEA to 20 mg.
UPDATE:  I tried this for a month and discovered that it prolonged the PMS and aggravated PMS symptoms. I may go back to this when I am older and need the extra hormonal support.
 
There are various progesterone creams and a progesterone spray on the Swanson Vitamins website. You just rub it somewhere on your body… and rotate the various spots you apply it to. One time you rub it on your tummy, another on your thighs, another on the inside of your arms…  No prescription required.
 
I get all of this very inexpensively on http://www.swansonvitamins.com  even with the darn shipping.
 
Another thing… stay away from all SOY, including TVP (textured vegetable protein).  No kidding. Soybean oil prevents your body from absorbing nutrition from your food… really blocks it.  Soy in general will mess up every hormone you ever had, beginning with the thyroid hormones, and then everything else. It is an endocrine disruptor.
 
If you think your thyroid is running low, taken a bunch of Kelp tablets for the iodine. Swanson has some good iodine drops, too. You can tell whether your thyroid is working right… stand in front of a mirror with your arms hanging at rest at your sides… if your hands are not palms to your legs… it they slant so the palms are not parallel with your body… your thyroid is outta whack. You need the iodine.

Quit Using Google

Gang… you know we’re in a police state, don’t you?  

The Google and Yahoo search engines are part of the new world order surveillance system.  Every time you use a regular search engine, your search data are recorded… every time. Your search terms, the time of your visit, the links you choose, your IP address and your User ID cookies all get stored in a database. The identity profiles that can be constructed from this cloud of information represent modern day gold for marketers.  But government officials, hackers and even criminals also have an interest in getting their hands on your personal search data.

In August 2006, AOL released three months’ worth of aggregated search data from 650,000 of its users, publishing all the details in an online database. This database is still searchable. It is an absolute eye-opener to see the potential for privacy nightmares.

Google recently took down Alex Jones’ “Obama Deception” video, both as a search engine term and as a YouTube video, informing Jones that showing Obama in a bad light isn’t allowed. They also took down some 5,000 blogs.  They are now in the business of censoring users and content. Blogsites are the last bastion of non-controlled news and opinion. The world wide web is now the front lines of the propaganda war.  Those scummy, murderous, spying control freaks that are trashing our country and our world. We must stand up to this evil.

I am asking you to use StartPage instead. http://www.startpage.com  doesn’t collect this data and maintains your privacy.

Predictions Regarding ObamaCare

Gang… first of all, hit this site and sign the petition: http://www.grassfire.com/130/petition.asp?ref_id=500064

and this one:  http://www.grassrootsaction.com/220/petition.asp?Ref_ID=3302&RID=21563424

I did predict that there were going to be some lawsuits being filed in the courts to overturn ObamaCare as unconstitutional… and there are already.  Here is an article on that: http://www.personalliberty.com/news/states-say-healthcare-bill-is-unconstitutional-will-sue-federal-government-19685333/   Turns out Texas already has one in the works.   Also, in the past couple of days, there have been instances of vandalism against campaign offices and numerous threats via e-mail, regular mail and voice mail, along with a deluge of phone calls pouring into the offices of Representatives and Senators. I don’t know if this is authentic or staged to justify further erosion of our civil liberties.  When the taxes and fines start hitting, people will really be up in arms.

No matter what, I predict there will be a landslide against the Democrats in the mid-term elections. I just hope that we can stop the dysfunctional pendulum swing back to the Republicans, because they aren’t a solution… we need third parties that are interested in going back to Constitutional law. We need people who run for office to be dedicated to shrinking government and its grasping. We need strict term limits and a new law put in place that removes the country club medical plan and retirement plans the Representatives and Senators now enjoy… after all, they are only part-time employees. If they can’t live with what they’ve legislated for the rest of us, they need to fix the system for all of us!

If, for some reason, ObamaCare is not overturned, I can make some very realistic predictions:

A lot of doctors will either quit the doctoring biz altogether, or will close their formal practices and then go into private, by referral, cash-only practices off the books. I’m betting on a lot of doctors moving their practices across the border to Mexico, then commuting back and forth across the border from home to their practices. I wouldn’t blame them, either.  Imagine having to make a trip to Mexico to get your basic yearly physical and some lab work done.

We will see a huge drop off in the numbers of people going through medical school. Who would want to go a quarter-million + dollars into debt for a degree that will, by legislation, won’t allow you to pay your own bills?  I mean, really, paying the student loans, plus malpractice insurance, plus the costs of maintaining a practice… it all adds up. The whole point to becoming a doctor, if you aren’t motivated by serving humanity by healing people, is to make money.

I can also predict that a lot of smaller employers are going to go to hiring most of their employees as contractors because of the massive taxes this ObamaCare scheme will levy on employers… in other words, very few people will have real jobs with benefits.

ObamaCare, since it will take the money directly out of your bank account without your permission, will also result in a lot of people getting out of banking… no savings or checking accounts to be plundered.  If anything, most will keep a token amount of money in a passbook account so they can cash their paychecks.  As a result, more people will also be hiding their income, and we will become increasingly a cash-and-carry society. A lot of people will probably be leaning more toward bartering.

Alternative currency is already coming into play:   Idaho is minting their own silver round and accepting it as currency and S. Carolina is trying to ban federal currency altogether. At least the Idaho thing isn’t banning the dollar, and it certainly would help the mining industry in that state to provide jobs. http://www.salon.com/technology/how_the_world_works/2010/03/15/idaho_silver/index.html

If you thought the IRS was already bad, wait until they start trying to enforce new and more draconian taxes.  The IRS doesn’t have to play by the rules as other law enforcement; they can drag you in and force you to prove your innocence.  ObamaCare is going to be a tax on everyone, not just those earning over $200,000 a year… and under hyper-inflation, that amount is not going to amount to much. If you’re already having a tough time making ends meet, wait until this stuff gets put into action.

ObamaCare will force a lot of companies to force their retirees off of their good insurance and into Medicare, mainly to begin accruing monies to pay out in the stiff taxes they are staring at. People who opt to keep their company health insurance will find that it will be taxed as if it were income… yes, that is a fine for keeping your corporate insurance.

I am also predicting massive tax protests on all levels. No-Eyes, the Native American prophet, predicted this one… and that it may result in blood running in the streets. Obama and his fascist bunch are picking up and running with Bush’s neocon internment camps and will likely use any excuse to round people up and lock them away. Yes, I’m predicting civil unrest.

I predict that a lot of people are going to become more educated on maintaining their own health and will seek out natural health care… naturopaths and homeopaths. We will be returning to the days of the “root doctor” and “kitchen witch” for primary health care. You might want to go ahead and hit the bookstores for some books on herbal medicine, and perhaps start stocking up on some common herbal curatives.

I am also predicting massive, runaway inflation very similar to what Argentina went through. We’re already seeing it. We’ve been seeing the manufacturing jobs getting oursourced for years, thanks to Clinton and Bush signing NAFTA and CAFTA into law.

I can also predict more people turning every square foot of their yards into family farm plots to supplement their diets, and preserving the excess for the long term. Food is going to get really, really expensive.  Actually, it already is. Start buying seeds and putting in some raised garden beds filled with rich soil. If you haven’t started already, you need to be storing food Mormon-style. Buy some foods in bulk and store it in airtight containers.  I’m not kidding. If civil unrest keeps truckers from delivering food to the stores, or if the military decides to cordon off entire areas, or if things get to the point where you will have to “shelter in place”, or if inflation gets to the point where you need a barrel of cash to buy a loaf of bread, you will need to live on your stored foods for a while.   I’m already seeing some disturbing trends in the local stores… even WalMart is carrying less variety and isn’t keeping up with stocking. You might also want to consider some other items, like a rocket-stove so you can cook your meals using just a few twigs.  http://rocketstoves.org/

Another thing… ammo. If you run low on Spam, that squirrel in your yard is gonna look mighty tasty. The local duck ponds are going to be missing some stock, too. Personally, I’m leaning more towards keeping “cuy” (guinea pigs) like they do in Peru… not as prone to parasites.

Okay… so am I predicting the apocalypse? Actually, I’m just trying to cover the bases. Things might continue to grind along as they have been, but I’m allowing for some craziness.

A Most Welcome Rebellion…

I’ve been praying that people would wake up and smell the police state… looks like they are.  A little rebellion is good for ya! Pass it on!

In the past couple of days, a number of passenger cell-phone video recordings showing the TSA gate-raping various people have surfaced to the point where even the mainstream media has to pick up on it. One graphically showed a TSA man pawing over a 3 year old girl. One fellow, having already been through the assortment of metal detectors, refused the naked body scanner, and when he did, he refused to allow the TSA employeed to mess with his “junk”, and they told him he could leave… on the way out of the airport some walking suit threatened the guy with a $10,000 lawsuit because he wouldn’t submit… huh? They want to fine him because he wouldn’t comply with unreasonable search of his person and decided to cash in his ticket and leave the airport? I’d like to see that one!

http://abcnews.go.com/GMA/video/tsa-full-body-scans-under-fire-12118266  Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger (the guys who successfully landed US Air Flight 1549 in the river)  along with the airline pilots’ and flight attendants’ unions, are actively protesting both the naked body scanners and the groping the TSA perverts will put you through if you try to opt out. If you multiply those scans times, say, 300 flights a year for the average airline employee, it is definitely a cancer risk and will certainly cause chromosome damage. Given that these backscatter radiation machines put out so very much radiation with no protection for the person getting the scan, there WILL be cancer cases coming from this. Nobody has done any kind of safety evaluation on these things.

The invasive pat-down is done with the same pair of latex gloves on each TSA employee all day, so figure that they’re actively diving into people’s shorts and jacking with their junk, there will likely be some cross-pollination of various diseases.  Just think about it… crabs, syphillis, gonorrea, herpes… all passed from one passenger to another because these TSA perverts won’t change their latex gloves.  They’re handling men, women and children, subjecting all to this degrading treatment and contagion risk.  Personally, I would never fly at this point.

Just applying common sense to the situation… you can’t get to the gate without going through a metal detector to begin with.  At Houston Intercontinental, they x-ray your baggage before you can even enter the terminal to go check in at the counter!  The naked body scanners are not only completely redundant, but wouldn’t be able to detect the types of explosives, like C4 or Semtex, or anything powdered.   Truth is the TSA has already declared that their intent was to make everyone to submit to BOTH the naked body scanners AND the invasive frisk.  The TSA doesn’t have this kind of authority. This is the police state trying to program us into accepting this kind of treatment.

It is long since time we all began contacting the airlines and telling them that as long as this behavior persists, we will not fly.  In fact… do us all a favor and hit all the airlines’ corporate websites and send them an e-mail to that effect. Just try doing that to the top 5 airlines…

http://www.aa.com/contactAA/viewContactAAAccess.do
http://www.continental.com/web/en-US/content/Contact/default.aspx
I just did, and I can’t wait to see what their replies are.

Just copy and paste the following text…
Guys… I refuse to fly on any commercial airline until you get rid of the naked body scanners and the TSA gate-rape invasive pat-downs.
After going through metal detectors, the naked body scanners are redundant, invasive and degrading, not to mention potentially dangerous. Just as dangerous are the TSA’s use of the same latex gloves all day on all passengers, greatly enhancing the risk of contagion… imagine getting herpes from another passenger that got groped before a previous flight’s departure. This is clearly a violation of my 4th amendment rights against unreasonable searches.
Heck, in most airports, you can’t even get into the terminal witout getting your luggage x-rayed!
If your airline is financially hurting now, wait until the campaign against air travel gets going in earnest.
I don’t care whether you send me a response or not.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7KGRVRCACDs&feature=email
Hooray… In New Jersey, the state government has taken steps to stop the TSA tyranny. While in Congress, Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison softly questions the TSA chief, and Texas Representative Ted Poe, in the video below that, calls it what it is… a big money SCAM, pure and simple. 

Michael Chertoff, Bush’s Homeland Security chief signed the contracts to purchase the naked body scanners and THEN left that post to work for the company that makes the naked body scanners!!!  To say the least, this is a conflict of interests… it more likely falls in the categories of misappropriations and embezzlement… felonies, given the billions of dollars involved.  He placed this order long before the drugged-up  ”underwear bomber” was placed on an airliner without any ID by a couple of government suits back on Christmas.

Gang… the more we stand up to these bullies, the better the chance we have at pushing back the tide of tyranny.  We outnumber them! We also have the power of the purse strings… the airlines themselves will ditch the TSA crapola if we quit flying… even better if some people got together and filed class-action suits.

I think I’m gonna e-mail this idea to Alex Jones.

Earth Medicine

In this instance, I am talking about Diatomaceous Earth.

A little background story first… some years ago, I went to a very bad dentist. The woman was ruthless and incompetent at the same time. She screwed around with everything in my mouth, cutting into gums, replacing enamel with crowns and veneers, and did this screwed up bridge over two teeth where two root canals had been done… both on her watch because the endodontist she sent me to did a half-ass job the first time. I relived the Inquisition every time I went there, and I payed her thousands of dollars for the privilege. In the midst of all this, there were antibiotics… several rounds of them. I went from being on the way to losing some weight, to having my gut in complete upheaval because of a systemic candida albicans infection. I wound up with food allergies. I wound up with my period becoming painful and heavy, and taking way too long. I wound up with mostly chronic diarrhea punctuated by occasional days of not having the runs.

I had been “diagnosed” by several holistic doctors as having leaky bowel syndrome… which actually refers to pinprick holes in the intestine walls leaking into the peritoneum… actually a rare occurrence.  After spending thousands of dollars on Chinese herbs and acupuncture, I finally hit upon what was really going on.

I’ve tried a number of things to get the candida under control and out of my system. I did the Hanna Kroeger Candida Formulas I and II, and I supplemented that with Black Walnut capsules… and that did help some… in fact, if my period were really rough, I would hit this stuff and the period would slack off pretty well.

I tried baking soda… as in swallowing several spoonfuls a day, chased by water. Yes, that alkalizes the system, but it couldn’t do it all.

I tried Willard Water… great stuff… but again, it alkalizes the system, but couldn’t do it all. It did give me some comfort and relief. I put the stuff in my cats’ drinking water and it completely healed one cat’s weepy eye that had been scratched by another cat.

At long last, last Friday the 16th, I followed a friend to a nice feed store on Veterans Memorial Drive, and picked up a big 25 lb. bag of food grade diatomaceous earth for $19.50.  That night, I started taking the stuff: one tablespoon in some juice. The stuff is a fine powder that has an astringent smell… you will need something with a reasonably strong taste to get it down.

I’ve been taking one helping in the morning and another at night and I am impressed. Seriously. My food cravings are changing… I want veggies and fruit and nuts like all get-out. My gut is feeling good and my tummy isn’t as poochy. I’ve had NO diarrhea, and what has come out has been really interesting. The stools are large and solid, and it looks like it has scrubbed some oddball stuff out of my body… some kind of fuzzy, wooly stuff.

This morning, Thursday, I noticed that the rosacea on my cheeks was already fading. While it has never been a severe case of the red blotchiness, I don’t like it. It won’t be long before I’ll be down to just using powder foundation without the liquid foundation under it.

Since the basis of diatomaceous earth is silica, I expect my hair to get even better looking. I hope my nails improve as well. 

So what else can I do with this humongous bag of D.E.?  I’ve given several ziplock bags of it to friends to try out. I’ve put a pinch of it into my cats’ food (you really have to bury it in something moist). The stuff can be used to kill bugs… they walk in it and then when they clean themselves, the tiny diatoms are sharp enough to kill the bugs. I have used D.E. in my garden with some success.

By all means, give this stuff a try. At the very least, it won’t hurt you. It’s cheap and it has numerous applications.

My own take on 2013

It is now just a little after midnight, January 1, 2013.

Those of you who check this space from time to time know I haven’t been adding much over 2012. I’ve been busy getting myself well. I had to have some surgery to remove some oddball cysts in my uterus, and then getting past that has been yet another long haul. I am slowly getting back up to speed. On top of that I have had to deal with a number of other things, such as the deaths of two cats, the diagnosis and care for a husband with Parkinson’s disease, and trying to keep up with what is really going on in the world. I wanted to put some concepts out to the world while it is still possible.

We are seeing more false-flag terror attacks now than ever before, both abroad and domestic. Benghazi was the Obama regime getting rid of some people under the guise of an attack by the locals, which themselves were more likely CIA-run “al Qaida”. There were frequent requests for security aid, which were ignored by the administration for months. We will likely not learn the truth of the situation until after Obama is removed.

In a government already known for lies upon lies, including “Operation Fast and Furious” which put real military grade full-auto assault rifles into the hands of the Mexican drug cartels (also run by the CIA) in an effort to take away our 2nd amendment right to keep and bear arms. Now we’ve had several mass shootings and attempts at mass shootings in malls, restaurants, theatres and schools. So far, what is reported by the prostitute mass media is wrong, and the official story is not only greatly simplified but wrong, and that there are usually more shooters around than originally considered, and even the shooters are not whom they are presented to be. Both the shooting in Sandy Hook and Aurora have shooters that had disappeared for some years prior to the shooting. In the case of the guy in Aurora, he didn’t resemble his college student ID at all… a Hispanic looking guy had become a scrawny white guy. The alleged Adam Lanza in Sandy Hook, a 150 lb. autistic kid… was said to have been wearing full body armor AND carrying a load of assault rifles and handguns and ammo magazines that would be difficult for a big, beefy US Marine to carry. So these scrawny, drugged-up mental defectives are masterminding and carrying out mass murder all on their own? There was a second shooter in the theatre in Aurora and someone outside. There were two additional persons taken into custody at Sandy Hook that nobody will talk about. There was a memorial Facebook page that went up 4 days before the shooting. Why weren’t the local cops or paramedics allowed in the school? Why were there non-local professional actors on site pretending that their loved ones were inside the school? Why couldn’t the coroner get the investitation done? What was Attorney General Eric Holder doing there talking to the first responders? There were so many inconsistencies at Sandy Hook, that you can’t take any aspect of it for granted.

We know what a false-flag is. This one is being used as the reason to take away our guns. They’ve trotted out Feinstein with a new law to vote on which will outlaw anything with a magazine, then make people register their weapons. The whole thing is right out of the Nazi play book: register the guns, then take away the guns, then take away the people and slap them into concentration camps. Yes, they already have the concentration camps ready and waiting for ingest. The people who won’t be able to work will be killed first. Don’t think so? Check on YouTube and other internet sites about the 800 or so FEMA camps and the modern guillotines they are training people to run. Yeah, this is serious. You all need to write physical letters to your congressmen and let them know that you are watching them and that they will NOT take away our guns… with a short explanation that the 2nd amendment was put into the Constitution as the cure for bad government.

This fiscal cliff thing? Yeah… that has the look and feel of psy-op, too. You see, the Federal Reserve is printing another $45 billion every month in their latest round of quantitative easing. They are using that to buy up the crap derivatives (at expense to us taxpayers) that their big bankster buddies are trying to get rid of, then those buddies can buy up more and more US treasuries (which pays them interest at our expense). On top of that, the Fed is swapping treasuries with all these broke-ass European countries, to the tune of $billions more every month. This is supposed to be illegal on both sides of the Atlantic. Their whole point in this is to keep the game going, destroying the value of our currency to the point where people will have trouble feeding themselves, and then sit back and watch as it all boils over into civil unrest. That is their plan.

Remember: The Great Depression started with the collapse of the European stock markets, then a matter of days later, it hit here. You can probably expect it to go down that way again. From what I have been reading, it could happen this first quarter of 2013. There are things you can do to prepare for this:

* Get your money out of the stock markets, the big banks, pension funds and 401(k) funds. They’re all just ways to fleece you. Take it out, and either roll it over to an IRA in a local credit union, or even better, pay the friggin’ taxes and buy some long-term storage foods, store cash in the house to get you through at least a month, buy guns and ammo, and silver and gold while it is still reasonably priced. You see… the price of these precious metals is being suppressed in the futures markets (COMEX, LBMA, CME, etc.) by these big bankers selling paper metal futures while having nothing in the vault. Buy the real thing and take possession of it while you can, because you won’t have any notice when the paper markets finally default and the real pricing mechanism kicks in. Silver should already be over $150 an ounce and gold should be a lot more than it is now. Buying the physical metals is how you will preserve the value of your money as the dollar enters the currency graveyard along with the euro.

If things continue on the course as it looks now, we will need these preparations.

Now… on the flip side… there is a growing liberty movement. Already over 2,000 citizen militias and growing. There is also apparently a positive, partiotic contingent of the US military that is just about to assist the Federal Marshalls in executing a large series of arrests… of corrupt politicians, of banksters, of bent law enforcement and alphabet agency people… and return our government to its founding principles and its founding documents. The guy, Drake, has his site here: http://americannationalmilitia.com/ and broadcasts on Sunday and Wednesday every week on http://www.blogtalkradio.com/universalvoice

Drake delivers news and analysis, along with information from within the heart of the liberty movement and positive members of various agencies that are working within the structure to set us all free. I rarely miss an episode. Even though Drake occasionally goes on a tear, he does also uplift. Worth a listen.

So, in summary, please become active: every physical letter you write to these legislators counts as something like 25,000 letters from people who agree with you but don’t write. Just in case Drake’s buddies don’t pan out, prepare your household with at least a few months’ of food, ways of storing and treating water, some cash and means to protect yourself, and silver/gold to store your hard-won wealth. Meditate and pray. Try to educate people around you. Manifest the best year ever.

Chakra Jewelry

Typical "7 chakras" necklace from www.turtleisland.cc

If you log onto http://www.turtleisland.cc and then go to the “medicine necklaces” page, a pair of very sweet-looking necklaces you will see are the “7 Chakras Necklaces”.

Chakras are the popular name given to the energy centers associated with the endocrine system, associated with 7 particular points on the body. Where did the whole concept of chakras come from? Around the turn of the last century, a group of theosophists translated a whole lot of Eastern texts ranging the whole gamut from health, philosophy, religion, yoga and meditation? They were the vanguard of the spiritualist movement, which eventually became known as the New Age movement. Granted, they got some of this stuff wrong. Some of it, like Ledbeatter’s The Chakras, really qualifies as one of many fluffy intellectual dead-ends. What good is all that fluff if it isn’t packaged so you can actually use it?

Where knowledge of chakras comes into play, is where you really start coming into awareness of your mental/emotional attitudes and their effects on your health. You can often stop a syndrome in the physical body by catching the causal attitudes and releasing them. So, if you tend to have lots of sinus pain, try to approach the basis of it within your own mental/emotional frame of reference. Is your nose out of joint? Are you crying on the inside? Are you feeling sorry for yourself, and if so, why? After doing a little self-checking, you may discover that you don’t need to take that antihistamine!

Sometimes one chakra may be over-stimulated by your circumstances. For example, the root chakra, which is located just below the base of the spine, will tend to be dominant under times of extreme stress, family issues, times of anger, and challenges to survival. While it is good to bring up the root chakra energy to help keep you going, it is not good to live like that. People who live from their root charkas tend to repeat and not learn from their mistakes, and tend to be in a lot of drama.

If you are under a great deal of stress, if anything, this would be the one time to settle down and meditate, and connect to your Divine Source. Bring in divine wisdom through prayer and meditation so you can consciously discover and release any patterns that are bringing stress into your life, and then change it all for the better. Bring in White Light from the heart of God in through the top of your head to fill your whole body, then balance your energy centers so the head chakras are more in control. Getting the head chakras to connect with the heart is important because it will tend to determine the quality of your life.

To my way of thinking, everything is a tool, and anything you put on you, within your energy field, has the potential of making you stronger or weaker on an energy level. In other words, my jewelry is just another way to package different energies that people need help with. While both of these necklaces are intended to balance and optimize the energy centers associated with the endocrine system, each of these has its particular focus.

The “7 Chakras Necklace I” Necklace is dainty and sweet, and suitable to wear to the office. The central stone is a Moonstone, which is both an activator for the other stones and possesses a very soothing vibration to assist the wearer with all of the transitions in life. Moonstone also connects the head chakras with the heart chakras. Working from right to left, from the 1st to 7th chakra, we have Snowflake Obsidian, Carnelian, Tiger’s Eye, Green Jade and Rose Quartz (for the thymus and the personal heart) on either side of the Moonstone, Blue Onyx, Sodalite, and Amethyst. This combination of stones would be described as soothing. Instead of firing up your root chakra, we’re grounding and smoothing it out with Snowflake Obsidian. Famed Houston psychic Rick Ferguson says this necklace works as an emotional balancer and has a lot of water and dolphin energy.

The “7 Chakras Necklace II” Necklace features a much more aggressive assortment of stones, including four classic “master healer” stones. Again, the central stone is a Moonstone, and working from right to left, from the 1st to 7th chakra, we have Garnet, Carnelian, Citrine, Malachite and Rose Quartz (for the thymus and the personal heart) on either side of the Moonstone, Turquoise, Lapis Lazuli, and Amethyst. Garnet, Citrine, Malachite and Lapis are all pretty aggressive. This version is intended to open and stimulate all of the energy centers with the kundalini fire for increased energy utilization. Great for times when you need an extra energy boost, but it can make some people feel “antsy”. This is not for someone who is angry, but rather for someone who needs a little help in standing up for herself.

If you have any questions about stone medicine, or other topics, feel free to drop me a line.

Requirement for Exercise…

I have to tell you that I am often motivated by odd things.
I got motivated to get out and walk this evening… and every evening that I can from here on out.
You see, we met my dece
ased brother-in-law’s kids at my husband’s mother’s house so they could get their dad’s old cars off the property.  You see, my husband finally got executorship over his mom’s estate after his brother sat on it for nearly 6 years (looting it and the financial assets) and then his sister sat on it for another 6 months before also dying, and having done nothing to handle the estate.  And we’ve been stuck with the work and the bills. It’s been a huge cluster-*&%# to say the least.
It took a while to get it across to the B-I-L’s kids that if the property sells with those vehicles on site, the vehicles are PART of the property.  These were the two younger of his kids… both under 30, and both about a foot taller than me (I’m 5’3″) and both are obese. I’m not kidding… OBESE!  If they’re not already diabetic, they will be shortly.  My B-I-L’s eldest child, by another mother, is 43, has always been overweight, and is on Metformin.  I look at how bad they look at their youthful ages and then look at myself. Yeah, I can stand to drop some weight… like 50 pounds!  I still look better now at age 52 than they do now.  I plan on being around a helluva long time, and I won’t be whining about it.
The daughter’s illegitimate child is normal weight but hyperactive and… well… stupid.  He runs all over the place, going apeshit and babbling. Most kids his age can form sentences. I’ll charitably put it down to vaccine damage, and maybe a shallow gene pool.
So… after the kids all left and we locked up and headed home, we marveled at what they looked like.  If either of these young ones or the son’s fat girlfriend had to haul ass, they’d all have to make two trips.  We marveled at how they were all such entitled whining wimps, and how the son is a twerp on top of that.   We went home and had a very pleasing grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup for dinner. Instead of letting dinner settle, I grabbed my cell phone and pocketed my .22 derringer, and headed out the door for as long a walk as I could stand.  I chatted with a friend as I went around one block, then another, then a third and then a couple of times around the track.
 
So, working at several professions that typically require long periods of sitting at a desk, it becomes all important to get some real exercise in.  Exercise raises the endorphin level, burns off excess calories, helps you sleep and improves your cholesterol. Exercise is one of few things that will raise the “good” cholesterol.  The good thing about the arrival of fall in Texas, is I can do a lot more walking before melting into a puddle of sweat.  I intend to walk as much as I can, and as often as I can.  Walking is a load-bearing exercise that is good for your bones.  I need to find some weights to carry, too.

Items in the News…

Silver is at $27.65 today.  Does that mean that I’ve made a profit on my silver investment? Actually, I think it just means that I’ve preserved that much of my capitol because the money is worth less and less. It is only a short matter of time before the ratio of silver to gold goes back to its classical 16 to 1 ratio.

Right now, I’m taking bets on whether gold will hit $2,000 an ounce by the end of 2010. I’m betting it will.

On the really good side: We are beginning to see lawsuits being brought against the big banks that have been causing these economic crises.  http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/hagens-berman-sobol-shapiro-jp-morgan-and-hsbc-face-rico-charges-in-silver-futures-class-action-lawsuit-106624128.html  Last Tuesday, a R.I.C.O. suit was filed in U.S. District Court against JP MorganChase and HSBC for their naked short-selling of silver futures, thereby manipulating the market.  Many years ago, when the Hunt brothers tried to pull this crap, they at least bought up a bunch of silver. JP MorganChase never bought any silver to begin with… not even any ETF or OTC stocks. Apparently someone got cheesed off enough to force them to show the goods, which they didn’t have… they stand to lose billions of dollars in fines as a result… though I bet it will all come from a government bailout.  There is a good side to their manipulation in that it allowed people like me to load up on silver at lower prices for a while longer. I fully expect silver prices to go up considerably now that their plot has been exposed.

The Federal Reserve declared that they will be printing a bunch more money, just as the large amount of money they printed a couple of years ago is kicking in as inflation. More educated are speaking and blogging, and I think more people in general are listening. http://www.prisonplanet.com/bernankes-solutions-are-the-problem.html is an article from the Ludwig von Mises Institute, which is all about Austrian Economics (as opposed to Bernanke’s Keynesian approach while ignoring the lessons of history).

Everyone is talking about it. Even the major on-line sources for holistic health information are getting into the act. Mike Adams the Health Ranger posted this: http://www.naturalnews.com/030309_food_inflation.html
and Dr. Mercola posted this: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2010/11/06/hyperinflation-what-it-will-look-like-in-the-us.aspx  and  http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2009/04/14/Winning-Tactics-for-Success-in-Todays-Economy.aspx
They are excellent articles.

I hope the push to reinstate the good legislation that used to prevent the economic horrors like we’ve been experiencing, and a rollback of all the bad legislation that has brought us to where we are, beginning with NAFTA and GATT, will be a priority of the new congress.  I also hope they bring the troops home and station them at our border with Mexico, the one place where they really would actually be defending American freedom.

The big 5 banks that made all this mess happen need to be broken down into more manageable size, with a return of the antitrust legislation we used to have. Goldman Sachs has their minions inhabiting every aspect of the mortgage mess… from the president’s cabinets, to the Federal Reserve, to the insurance companies that did the derivatives, to the ratings agencies that would ordinarily have caught this sub-prime crap before it got sold world wide. Time to weed these creeps out… now.

The investigational capacity needs to be returned to the FDIC so they can go after the criminals involved… does anyone remember back in the early 1980s when the investigators arrested and jailed some 5,000 bankers in the big savings and loan scandal? Yeah… we need that sort of thing… and make sure we liquidate their ill-gotten gains to repay all the bailouts, preferably putting the money back into all those mutual funds and retirement funds that got held hostage for the bailouts and screwed anyway.  

In short, we need a return to constitutional law and order.

Eating Right Isn’t That Time-Consuming

Okay… I’ve been looking at ingredient labels and wondering why we’re eating the packaged crap at the grocery stores. Having been “prepping” by stocking up on basic materials, I’ve had to re-explore home cooking, which better prepares me for self-sufficiency in the aftermath of whatever might throw a monkey-wrench into the normal commerce around these parts. Seeing my neighbors standing in line for hours to enter a grocery store that had been completely denuded a couple of days in front of Hurricane Ike, was a good indicator that the more I can do for myself, the better.

Now… talking to a friend on the phone, who admittedly says that she doesn’t have time to cook… and here the poor dear is carrying enough weight to make an extra person… just doesn’t wash with me.  That very evening I had created a perfectly wonderful and healthy dish with some of my pantry basics. I took a cup of quinoa, about 3 cups of water, a MSG-free chicken buillion cube, half a chopped onion, a tablespoon of the garlic in olive oil, and one of the 12-ounce cans of turkey meat, drained (I buy the 4-packs of the turkey meat at the wholesale clubs)… and dumped the entire lot into my rice cooker and pretty much walked away.  Once things got about half done, I dumped in a couple of fist-fulls of the dehydrated carrot bits and half a bag of frozen peas.  It became a wonderful dish. You can easily use Veg-All mixed vegetables in a can for the veggie. I made up a quick gravy using a can of Cream of Mushroom soup to top it off.  My husband said it was like turkey and dressing all together, and he certainly made a lunch of it to take to work the next day. 

Okay… I had the veggies, the meat, plenty of flavor, and a HEALTHY carb… quinoa  is gluten-free, has about 15% protein content, a high amino acid score, a relatively low glycemic load, plenty of fiber and is loaded with bone-building minerals.

I mean, really… dumping some ingredients into a rice cooker and walking away?  That didn’t take much of any time.  Okay… it took a little time to chop up an onion.

What did it actually cost? $2 for the can of turkey, maybe $1 for the quinoa, half an onion I already had in the fridge and half a bag of veggies I already had in the freezer (closed with a clothes-pin)… maybe another dollar?  And a can of cream of mushroom soup to top it off? Not much there. I  created a total of 5 healthy meals for maybe $5.50. 

Time to get real, America!

Home Depot Observation

My friend in Santa Fe, New Mexico is dealing with some really strange phenomena. New Mexico is melting down and there isn’t a peep about it in the media. Their governor apparently stole billions of dollars from the state, the attorney general is also a crook, the crimelords are running things, and the police can’t be bothered to deal with any crimes that they can’t take a profit from (traffic enforcement). There is no immigration law enforcement.  The economy there stinks worse than probably anywhere else.  The grocery stores aren’t really stocking much, either, so they line the fronts of the shelves with food and don’t load any stock behind that.   The food banks are tapped out and even Costco isn’t carrying anywhere near the variety that we have here in Houston. 

So my friend is trying to put some resources together so she can handle the upcoming shifts, and the probable crazy stuff that may very well accompany all of that. I’ve walked down the aisles at Costco and my local grocery store with her on the phone… I tell her what I see and the price and she tells me how much of it to buy for her. I’ve shipped several heavy boxes to her this past month.

The latest thing was that she needed to find a way to store her food stash so the bugs wouldn’t get into it. It needed to be light and air tight. I suggested she go down to Home Depot, which has the 5 gallon paint buckets with the good lids that have rubber o-rings in them. They’re tough to get open once you have filled them and clamped the lid down.  Turns out, the Home Depot in Santa Fe is out of them… and has been for some time… and they’re not restocking very much, either. She went all over town trying to find something along those lines, but couldn’t. 

This evening after dinner, I went to my local Home Depot, and got my friend the lids, and got myself some buckets and lids as well, among other things. I asked an associate to please check to see if there were any more of the crank-up flashlights… he came back to report there were none. The fellow then asked about why he was seeing so many people loading up on things like these buckets, and emergency type supplies like the batteries and crank radios and the like. I simply explained things as best I could in a nutshell:  we’re about to experience hyper-inflation, and people are preparing by pulling their investments out of the banks and stock market and buying food, ammo and metals.  I explained that we could see the real poo hit the fan as early as first quarter of next year, but we will likely see obvious price inflation hitting as early as this fall.  The man looked at me with glazed, uncomprehending eyes and said that he was glad I was keeping up on these things, as he didn’t have time to.  The poor schmuck… he seemed too old to be that stupid.

The experience tells me that a lot of my neighbors here in Houston are paying attention and trying to stock their pantries, if nothing else.  I’m glad about that.  I’m concerned about the other folks that can’t wrap their heads around what’s going on, hoping that everything will continue bumping along. I try to educate people, but I can’t do their thinking for them. I’m genuinely worried about family members of mine that opt to complain about where the country is heading, and how their 401-Ks are tanking, but aren’t doing anything to be able to handle what looks to be coming up pretty soon. I plan on taking a load of food over to my mom and ask her to “store it for me for a little while”  just to get her marginally equipped.

Preparing for Collapse?

What we’re staring at now…

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ccMJclKpBQI   This YouTube video explains what I’ve been talking about better than just about everyone.  Go ahead and check out some of the other videos while you’re at it. We’re feeding a ballooning financial bubble with an expanding a money supply that becomes worth less and less, and looting a collapsing physical economy while shipping production elsewhere.  NAFTA, CAFTA, bailouts, and “reform” legislation that gives more and more of our tax money to the big banks and corporate interests are sinking our economy. The U.S. is in the process of reliving the Weimar Republic of Germany, Argentina’s collapse, and Zimbabwe’s hyperinflation troubles. Peter Schiff, Gerald Celente and a number of other educated economists have stated this over and over. We are being plundered.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PQAsJeQIcVc   This is a nice video by a young man named Reginald in Alaska who has come to a lot of the same conclusions, and has posted a whole series of videos to help people to prepare for the collapse. Bless his heart, he’s doing his best to get his points across.

What I am trying to get across is that once things start kicking in, things will domino fast.  You don’t want to wait until the situation is already going downhill. Waiting until the day before a hurricane makes landfall to stock up on basic supplies puts you at a severe disadvantage, to say the least… you wind up with odds and ends leftovers at higher prices.  It takes less than an hour for a grocery store to be emptied by a frenzied populace… I’ve seen it every time a hurricane made its way toward the Texas Gulf Coast… and it takes the grocery stores a couple of months to restock. 

Food costs have already increased by over 30% since the beginning of 2010, and as that next wave of freshly minted devalued money hits the streets, prices will go up more and your paycheck will purchase less. It will take a while before companies can adjust prices and wages to keep up. In the meantime, you will have to tread water.  You will have to put food in your belly so you can keep working.  If we’re staring at civil unrest and martial law limiting your movement to the point of keeping you stuck at home, you will have to live on what you have stored.

The classic way that countries have dug themselves out of depressions is WAR. One likely scenario would be another false flag terrorist attack here in America… that could easily be staged, given our lack of border security, and there’s plenty of scuttlebutt on the net about that being planned for this summer, or fall at the latest.  They’ve done it before and they will do it again. Watch carefully the situations with Pakistan/Afghanistan where the U.S. is sewing the seeds of war by bombing civilian populations. Look at North and South Korea now, with a ship sunken by a new kind of missile. Even more frighteningly, look at Israel and Iran… it looks like we may see an exchange of warheads there if cooler heads cannot prevail. Even a small missile (nuke or not) exchange will shut the entire Middle East down, and stop the flow of oil. That’s all it would take for what’s left of our economy to come to a grinding halt just because fuel prices would skyrocket, causing food prices to skyrocket, and adding another layer of burden on our shrinking purchasing power.  

If you know it’s coming, you might as well plan ahead. Shop the sales, join a wholesale club, and pack every nook and cranny in your house with food, spices and hygiene items you will need.  

You might want to check out the videos on putting together your “Mormon style” 3 month supply: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t1rCaNO1umY&NR=1  The lady in this video is quite good in her explanations.

I stumbled on another resource: http://www.honeyvillegrain.com where you can get powdered cheese, eggs, milk, butter and an assortment of other things, most of which will store for 5 years.

Halloween Musings…

“I’m Morticia Addams and I’m giving Cleopatra the man-eating oak tree a haircut.” I was standing on a stool under the outer edge of my front oak tree.

I had plenty of candy, and my lights were on, but since my husband turns in at 8 PM, I didn’t want any of the little spooks ringing the doorbell. I heard voices in the dimming distance, so I opened the burglar bars encasing my front porch.  Looking down the front walk, I decided to trim the bushes, just to pass the time while waiting for trick-or-treaters. That done, I got the limb-nippers and trimmed the low hanging branches of our live oak tree, particularly the branches that scrape the top of my minivan as it pulls into its parking spot.  I called it quits when I had trimmed the last branch within my reach with the aid of a step-stool. At 9:20 I called Halloween quits, locked up and turned the lights out.

Okay… this time of year is classically associated with death and our ancestors.  We certainly live in scary times.  There’s no doubt that our ancestors as well as America’s founding fathers would be turning in their graves if they saw how things were going.  Our government is doing exactly everything they warned us against.

Obama and his cadre, the same bunch of creepos that Bush answered to, have engineered a half-assed terror event.  The two printer cartridges addressed to synagogues and  shipped on commercial carrier flight, were made to look like bombs. They each had some odd stuff smeared on them and an old TV circuit board glued to them… notice there was no power source… no battery to make it go, and not even a mercury switch.  There’s still two days in front of the election in which to pull some kind of schenanigans.

Silver hit $24.82 the last time I checked, just a few minutes ago. Most of the Austrian School economists and trend forecasters say it will hit $30 by the end of this year and perhaps even $50, and gold could easily hit $2000 pretty quick… it’s already at $1360. 

I, my mom and my two sisters went out to lunch Saturday to celebrate the two October birthdays, mine and my older sister’s.  I gave Kathy a 1-ounce generic silver round in a greeting card.
When it came to discussing the state of things over lunch, Mom’s typical rant was “We gotta get these liberals out of office.” 
My reply was simple, “Yes, but it won’t help us if we elect a bunch of neocons like Bush and his bunch… they have to be REAL Republicans. We have to elect constitutionalists.” 
Mom’s rant continued, “It doesn’t matter, we have to get Republicans in there!”
“I agree, Mom, but like I said, if we just drag in a bunch more RINOs and neocons, nothing will change. Besides, even if we elect nothing but constitutionalist government-shrinkers, the current batch will have 3 whole months to do ANYTHING THEY WANT until the next group gets sworn in in January.”  Yeah, it cast a pall over things just a bit. My younger sister asked if I knew any good gossip… the only thing I could come up with was about silver. I told her that it could easily hit $50 an ounce pretty quick because of JP Morgan and Goldman Sach’s naked short selling of silver and gold to depress the prices, and that they stand to lose billions of dollars trying to cover themselves, and they will probably be fined for this latest batch of misdeeds.   I see that as hopeful since the value of the metals will be unleashed to do what it is supposed to do.  In times of high inflation, silver typically returns to its classical 16-to 1 ratio with gold, meaning that it really should be selling for $85 an ounce right now.  Since most silver is actually consumed in industrial applications, and there is only about 5 years’ supply out of the ground right now, it may actually achieve a lot smaller ratio, if not actual parity with gold. When I found out about that, I realized why I never really got all excited about gold, even though I do own some.

I found out that my younger sister, Linda, is loading up on some foodstuffs… mostly canned… and has a victory garden of various greens going.  Hooray for her.  I don’t think my older sister has wrapped her head around that concept as yet.  Linda’s daughter is trying to live out there in California, but can’t find paying employment in a state with a real unemployment rate of 33%. She needs to come back home and make use of that high-dollar degree.

My husband still hasn’t quite wrapped his head around the whole concept of metals, so I’m still trying to educate him. The point is that you sell anything you don’t need and buy anything you will need NOW while the money has some buying power. Metals gain value as currency loses value.  When he commented that it wasn’t liquid, I countered that you sell it the same way you bought it… you go back to the bullion dealer and sell it to them for the current price, then take that cash and buy what you need. It’s perfectly liquid AND it is a great way to retain wealth.

The upshot is that NOW is the time to buy silver and gold, while the values are still artifically depressed.  Yank your money out of the stock market before this current little rally peters out.  Obama is eyeing up your 401K anyway, and with his cronies guaranteed in control for another 3 months, with nothing left to lose from furthering their nasty agenda, you can bet on the worst coming to pass.  You might as well bail your assets out and pay the 10% taxes now, instead of waiting until next year and paying 15% or  losing it outright.  The Federal Reserve is printing an additional $2.5 TRILLION in unbacked currency this year, to go with the other trillions printed in the last couple of years.

Right now, in real world terms, the inflation rate is 7%. Once this current round of “quantitative easing” sets in, inflation could easily go to 14%. Once all those t-bills and dollars that are out circulating around in the world come back to the U.S., we could be staring at much, MUCH higher inflation, probably staring at hyper-inflation. 

If you get the chance, take a look at the newest film from the National Inflation Association “The End of Liberty”  http://inflation.us/videos.html   Their other films, such as “Meltup” are quite educational as well.  Don’t watch it right before bedtime, though.

Talk to Everybody…

Silver is up to $24.47 today.  I told you so!  My silver dealer says that there is a lot of competition for all bullion, and that 90% “junk silver” U.S. coins are getting difficult to find.  People are getting into other metals such as platinum and palladium.  To that, I would add that the real copper pennies from 1981 and before should be part of your personal collection.

How to summarize what is going on? The guys at  http://www.halfpasthuman.com/ and http://urbansurvival.com/week.htm have published a number of prognostications, which they admit are historically about 50% correct, depending on the lead-up. You see, what they do is take all the information from the collective consciousness of humanity via a web search spider, which does an average. Now… when you add all of these up, and compare them with what Gerald Celente  http://www.trends2012.co.cc  Alex Jones http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel and http://www.gcnlive.com, and the National Inflation Association http://inflation.us  and Peter Schiff http://peterschiffblog.blogspot.com all say… you come up with a heck of a pattern.

I’ve always followed my internal compass. I saw the real estate bubble coming like 6 or 7 years ago… I just didn’t know how bad it was going to be.  I knew the money crisis was coming when silver started going up… as a jeweler, I am very sensitive to silver prices… so I began buying silver bullion at around $9 an ounce.  I was caught napping in 2008 when the banksters screwed the pooch, taking the stock market and most of our 401Ks down by about half.  In retrospect, instead of rolling the money over to a “high performance” mutual fund, which simply lost even more of my money, I should have just cashed it in, paid the taxes and bought metals. Enough about little me.

Now back up and look at the big picture:  all of Bush’s “Homeland Security” apparatus is being turned on We The People. They are trained to target ex-military and gun owners.  This is a total fascist coup in the offing. Fascism is the marriage of government power under corporate direction. We are being ruled by a corporate cleptocracy that has already successfully transferred all the profits to the private sector while socializing the losses at taxpayer expense.  Anyone involved in the Tea Party, Constitutionalist movements, 10th Amendment organizations, or OathKeepers, are being targeted, and their children are being taken from them by CPS. One OathKeeper family had their newborn taken and sexually molested by the pedophiles in their local CPS: http://www.prisonplanet.com/baby-seized-in-oath-keepers-case-taken-to-hosipital.html    Yes, they are taking it all. 

Listen to the mass media… just enough to develop a critical ear… George Soros, who finances a lot of left-wing media and organizations, is trying to scare people away from buying gold saying that “gold is the ultimate bubble”.  That is a misdirection if I ever heard one.  The U.S. Mint and all of the European central banks have ceased selling their gold bullion… the former can’t keep up with demand, while the latter is just plain sitting on it.  The Federal Reserve announced another round of “quantitative easing” to further devalue the dollar while jacking up inflation.  All the other central banks around the world are trying to beat them with competitive  devaluation so they won’t get stuck with the most expensive currency. Just as the real estate derivatives crash went world-wide for a total of something like $2 QUADRILLION, the value of all the currency in the world is also being trashed in an attempt to not lose export trade while “monetizing debt”…. that’s printing more and more money to pay off debt with money that is worth less. So… they will keep printing money, and printing more, and printing more… and when that doesn’t work to keep the ponzi-scheme economy going, they will switch to a gold-backed currency. The last time the U.S. went to a gold-backed currency, they stopped all gold shipments out of the U.S., no matter who owned it.  In fact, France sent warships to collect their gold that was being stored in the U.S.   The government also legislated that everyone would turn in their gold bullion at a set price, and after it was taken from the citizenry, they raised the price. That law remained in effect until the 1970s… remember that?… remember when people were suddenly able to purchase gold bullion?

We are staring at a faster domino effect than originally thought. An average of the various non-MSM news sources are talking about a probable “bank holiday” most likely occurring on a 3 day weekend, on the other side of which the money will be worth at least half of what it was.  Okay so we have Veterans Day,  Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s coming up soon.  The HalfPastHuman project is calling for “a major event” the second week of November, beginning with a tipping point on around the 8th, so mark your calendars.  This event is supposed to be global in scope and is projected to have an emotional impact reaching into March of 2011.

This bank holiday could easily be in conjunction with another staged “terror attack” like 9-11.  We know the military is doing a lot of experiments with something called “Project Blue Beam” wherein they use holographic projection technology to give the appearance of just about anything… like maybe some spaceships from outer space?  There have been a lot of sightings in major market cities lately… like New York.

The people I know are doing their best to gather in whatever they think they will need for perhaps 6 months. Some are only just starting and are feeling overwhelmed.  We’re talking food, medicines, toiletries, water filters, ammo and so forth. We’re all swapping ideas on how to maximize our resources.   

Please, please, please… talk to your friends and relatives and don’t stop. Get out there and blog, make comments on other blogs and news sites, keep talking to people wherever you go.  We have to do what we can to look after our families AND we have to stand up to tyranny.  We have to do both and there isn’t much time. Like Gerald Celente said, this is the time of the ant and the grasshopper. The ants that are pulling their supplies together are going to be in much better shape to survive the tough economic winter coming fast.  This isn’t being alarmist or paranoid. It is taking care of business.  Most of all, it is a labor of love.

Now… if you really want to take the battle to the Wall Street banksters, you kill their stocks.  The single most vulnerable stock out there is Coca-Cola, followed by PepsiCo.  Quit drinking that stuff. Most of the economy is presently controlled by only 6 banks… quit banking with them… quit doing business with Citibank, Chase, Wells Fargo, Wachovia, Bank of America, JP Morgan.  Instead take your business to a local credit union. When you need a loan, like a car loan, you talk to your credit union first and then go shopping. Quit buying your groceries at WalMart and buy more from local farmers’ markets.

We have the ability to hurt them and to withdraw our consent to victimization.

Projected Date for SHTF…

I’ve had the sense that events were being sped up by the banksters and their globalist cohorts.  Please watch this:  http://www.video.me/ViewVideo.aspx?vid=454093
Michael Ruppert of www.collapsenet.com calls the economic meltdown as beginning around July with the next quarterly business report which will show failing numbers.
  1. The Japanese Tsunami & Level 7 Nuclear Emergency in Japan create worldwide disruption of supply chains for parts in many industries force economic downturn worldwide.
  2. Toyota is virtually closing down worldwide, with other Japanese companies following. You see, they all ship the parts to their plants in America where American workers just bolt the stuff together to sell.  With no supplies and no manufacturing capacity, there will be massive lay-offs in the auto industry.
  3. The Japanese economy is already severely tumbling into deep depression, and this is after enduring 20 years of stagflation and near-zero interest rate on their carry trade.  The Japanese are the 3rd largest purchaser of U.S. treasuries and now they are selling those T-bills off to pay for rebuilding their country. 
  4. Gas prices are projected to hit $5 a gallon by Memorial day (May 30), which will cause huge spikes in food prices and just about everything else, while fairly killing most retail.
  5. Quarterly earnings in July corporate reports will glumly document losses in world coporations.
  6. The bankster bailed nations (Greece, Ireland, Portugal, etc.) will default as their economies flat line and their people take to the streets protesting “austerity measures”.
  7. Congress will have to make a deal for a new debt ceiling by July, and they will likely raise it again. The Federal Reserve introduces QE-3, or Quantitive Easing 3 is brought in to continue what QE-2 didn’t accomplish by the time it ends in June, and even more inflation ensues.
  8. The bankster ponzi scheme will be seen to be nakedly failing.
  9. Dow will loose 4,000 points, likely in a very short amount of time.
  10. Massive lay-offs will be announced from August onward, most probably world wide.
  11. The Banksters announce they will be happy to fix their problem if you hand over the rest of everything.
  12. The masses wake up and puke.
  13. Bank holidays likely.
  14. Egyptian-styled mass protest marches become the norm.
  15. At that point, I hope we see the banksters and corrupt politicians getting strung-up at necktie parties all over the world.
In a nutshell, with the announcement of corporate quarterly earnings in the negatives in July, there will be economic upheavals that will be in full swing in August. 
My own instincts tend to lead my hands in things. I get into a “mania” about something and it generally turns out to be the right thing to do:  buying silver bullion is one of them, gardening is another, and storing food is yet another. Right now I’ve got a batch of colloidal silver brewing so I can preserve a barrel of water without using bleach.
Yet another mania I have is gently approaching people I know and asking them if they are making preparations… getting assets ”out of paper” (i.e.: the stock market, IRAs, etc.) and into metals, while stocking food, water and ammo. Some just shake their head as if I am nuts, and others tell me a few things I didn’t know before!  It is most heartening to know that will be one less family that will die in a FEMA camp.  Today I heard back from a friend that is putting her house up for sale so she can move back to her hometown to be with family… a good move.
Right now, I can’t seem to bring myself to work on my tax returns (it is already the 13th!). I e-mailed my accountant and told him my 1099 wages and my husband’s various figures on his W-2, and told him to file an extension for me. Why should I make tax payments throughout the year when I can use that money to buy “survival” supplies like freeze-dried foods and silver bullion while the money still works?  I will pay the IRS with devalued currency when the time comes. I feel like since there is no rule of law, why should I obey the law? Most of Obummer’s czars hadn’t filed tax returns in years and many owed truckloads of money!
Gosh-darn it, we sure live in interesting times!  The thing of it is, I feel pretty good about how I’ve positioned my family through working on my preparedness. Fear isn’t part of my vibe.
Silver got to within pennies of $42 last week, and is still hovering at the $40+ mark. I fully expect it to hit $50 an ounce within two months, despite severe manipulation by the bullion banks. There are several scenarios for $500 silver being wargamed by metals bugs.

Handkerchiefs and Bandannas

Being a native Houstonian, I am well familiar with “Houston sinus”. We have a selection of the world’s nastiest and cheapest, most pollen producing landscaping plants around… and they all have their season. You name it: wax leaf ligustrum, crepe myrtle, red leaf photinia, ragweed, goldenrod, etc.  You will know when the oak or pine trees are blooming because you will see yellow dust all over everything. People will be sneezing. Add to that the typical seasonal colds and flu and you’ve really got something.

The thing I noticed and questioned was the use of Kleenex.  The reason people use these paper tissues is presumably to be more hygienic. They can’t be all that effective if they aren’t big or thick enough to contain a sneeze, and what if people don’t throw them out with each sneeze? How many trees are they destroying because of that?  Toilet paper is a good stop-gap for a dribbly nose, but hardly effective. 

How did people handle this in the past?  Handkerchiefs and bandannas.  Those innocuous squares of fabric you see gentlemen using in the old movies, or you see cowboys using in a bazillion ways in any western film. My grandmother had smaller, more decorative ones. My dad the chiropractor ALWAYS carried a handkerchief, and he would toss it into the laundry and pulled a fresh one out of the drawer to start the day with.  They are the very epitome of sustainable ”green” technology. 

So I started carrying them in place of Kleenex. I have one of each in my bug-out-bag. I keep a spare handkerchief in my purse in case I happen to saturate the one in my pocket.  This past Christmas when I saw my younger sister using a printed paper napkin (ouch) to honk into, I gave her my spare hankie.  After my Doctor of Oriental Medicine saw me produce one from my pocket, she told me that it was the very best because they use all sorts of really nasty chemicals to bleach and sanitize the paper they recycle to make paper tissues, adding another layer of irritants. 

A standard fully washed and broken-in bandanna is about 21″ square, while a handkerchief is about 17″ square.  There’s your difference. Either should be 100% cotton.  Linen is more expensive, but tends to be rougher on the nose.

Uses for the handkerchief or Bandanna.  Blowing one’s nose.  Cough into to avoid spraying germs on others.  Coming to the aid of a weeping lady.   Wipe lipstick (or anything else) off your face.  Clean your glasses.  Surrendering.  Wave to get someone’s attention.  Making a (small) tourniquet.  Cleaning up a spill.  Reducing one’s carbon nose-print.  Disposing of semi-masticated  food morsels discreetly.   Robbing banks.   Being a dandy.  Fainting.  Covering sneezes and coughs.   Wiping one’s brow.   Signaling erotic preference.   Using as a napkin while traveling.   Use as a hand towel, or in lieu of toilet paper, in an understocked public bathroom.   Making a Molotov cocktail.   Blindfolding a man condemned to die by firing squad.  Tying one’s belongings to a stick before running away from home as a child.  Opening a door while working as a private detective.  Use to avoid leaving fingerprints.  Rendering someone unconscious with ether.  Waterboarding.  Performing magic tricks.  Signifying gang membership.  Killing insects.  Tie corners together to make a small bag. Cleaning shoes before a business meeting.  Opening jars and bottles.  Using as a rag.  Cover your mouth/nose against dust. Use as a water filter to remove sediment or bugs from stream water.  Use as a bracelet, a necklace, a headband, a hat or any other imaginable accessory.  Creating plot devices.  Wipe sweat from your hard-working brow. It can even be weaponized.

This is by no means a complete list. the more one searches the web, the more ideas one may come up with many, many more applications.

Summer Heat & Electrolytes…

In the past couple of weeks it has come to my attention that I need to pass on this information. I have two friends who have been sidelined by something called Bell’s Palsy, and the current summer temperatures are wiping people out.  One is an ourdoorsman (hunting and fishing) and the other is a psychic that works a lot of outdoor festivals… both have come down with Bell’s Palsy on the right side, with one suffering paralysis of the entire right side of the body.  Believe me, if you spend a few hours outdoors, even in the shade, you are going to lose a lot of your essential minerals with your sweat. The upshot is that you will not recover as quickly without taking a few measures.
YOU NEED ELECTROLYTES!
Essentially you have two main electrolytes… potassium and sodium, in a 2 to 1 ratio. Your body needs these two minerals in balance to maintain a large number of functions… they are incredibly indespensible to the health of the human body in every way.
Now… you know you have a deficiency in either of these  electrolytes if you look in the mirror and look at your relaxed but closed mouth. A deficiency of sodium will be evident by a droop on the left side of the mouth, while a deficiency of potassium will be evident by a droop on the right side of the mouth.
If you wake up with one side of your nose clogged, you know by which side the stuffed nostril is on which mineral you need. If you suffer sciatica or Bell’s Palsy on one side or the other, you know by which sidem which mineral you have a deficiency of.  You also know you have a deficiency if you have high blood pressure:  High diastolic pressure (the lower number) means you don’t have enough potassium, while high systolic pressure (the upper number) means you don’t have enough sodium.  The last thing you do it take a diuretic, which doctors still prescribe to treat blood pressure these days. Diuretics cause the body to lose essential minerals and will actually set you up for a heart attack or stroke. If you are experiencing edema, allegedly from too much sodium, you don’t reduce the sodium, but rather supplement the potassium to balance it all out. Both potassium and sodium are essential alkaline forming minerals, which will make you better able to resist infections caused by high acid pH.
SYMPTOMS OF POTASSIUM DEFIENCY:
  • Most notably, if you are deficient in potassium, you will likely have a dairy allergy… I can personally attest to this.
  • High diastolic blood pressure (the lower number), and high blood pressure in general.
  • Droop on the right side of the mouth.
  • Lack of potassium causes edema (swelling) if there is too much sodium present.
  • Lack of potassium causes auto-intoxication because it is the carbon transporter from the cells to the lungs, via the bloodstream.
  • Blood clots… especially in the brain.
  • Lack of potassium causes heart muscle damage, reduces kidney funtion, and will causes the endocrine system (you body’s governing glands) to shut down.
SYMPTOMS OF SODIUM DEFIENCY:
Sodium is probably one of the most misunderstood minerals.
  • Without it, you are going to have multiple dietary allergies… usually beginning with something simple like wheat, and continuing to where one becomes allergic to rice… which is extreme… causing diaheah and gas in the intestinal tract.
  • Droop on the left side of the mouth.
  • Loss of appetite, except for things high in sodium.
  • Change in pressure inside the eyes, affecting eye lens focus.
  • Lack of sodium causes the body to sweat excessively, leading to dehydration, causing parched lips and constipation.
  • Arthritic pains, particularly on the left side of the body, and especially the left knee.
  • Sciatica on the left side, sometimes causing numbness in the toes or foot.
  • Can be a cause or an indicator of diabetes. Ever notice that undiagnosed diabetics over-salt food?
  • High systolic blood pressure.
  • Blood clots and stroke on the left side.
  • Depression and crying for no logical reason.
HOW TO SUPPLEMENT:
The reason we crave salads during the summer is because they are generally an excellent source for dietary sodium, especially if your salad included celery, carrots, spinach and other greens. Add a potassium-based electrolyte drink like Emergen-C or Liqui-Mins Electrolyte Stamina, and you’ve got a great lunch there.
Ever wonder why people in these arid countries “waste” water on growing melons?  It’s the electrolytes!  Especially the white part closest to the skin… notice how salty it tastes?  Yeah… that’s it!  If you juice, use the whole watermelon. If you make green smoothies, just use a carrot peeler on the outside of the melon and throw the rest in your blender for your juice base, then add your favorite deep green leafy veggies.
Baked potatos… ’nuff said!
 
Even easier… bee pollen and alfalfa.  Each 500 mg capsule of bee pollen contains about 300 mg of potassium, and each 600 mg capsule of alfalfa concentrate contains 600 mg of potassium along with enough sodium to make it work. The cool thing about alfalfa caps or tablets… they contain the perfect 2 to 1 potassium to sodium balance, AND the built-in chlorophyll will help you smell better when you perspire in the heat.
Table salt… test it first.  If you put a spoonful in a glass of water and it does NOT dissolve immediately, then it isn’t good for you.  Switch to a type of rock Kosher or sea salt that dissolves immediately. I personally like the Himalayan pink salt.  Everyone has been given one of those salt tablets at some point in their lives… all I can say is look at the ingredients. It might be a good stop-gap, but if it does not contain enough potassium to balance out that sodium, you might swell up.
READING:
Pick up a copy of The Ultimate Healing System by Donald Lepore. It’ll be tough to find, but a valuable resource book you will go back to again and again. The information contained in this book got me over multiple dietary allergies.

The Ultimate Way to Take Back Your Power!

http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u
and
http://maxkeiser.com/2010/11/12/crash-jp-morgan-buy-silver/
Max Keiser was on the Alex Jones radio program last Thursday. Ol’ Max said something incredibly insightful:  We could completely CRASH JPMorgan if everyone goes out and buys one or two silver rounds or some 90% silver coins.  No kidding. Alex Jones is getting ready to do a campaign on this one… both an article and a web search campaign to wake people up.

Let me repeat this:  If each of you hits your local coin dealer, pawn shop or eBay and spends maybe $60 on two ounces of silver, it would bring down all of the big bullion banks like COMEX, both in the U.S. and in the U.K.   I love the idea!  It is certainly do-able and very logical. 

Buying gold and silver is the ultimate way to vote against the funny-money fiat currency the big bank hoodlums are trying to foist on us. If we stand up to their bid for total world domination, they have no choice but to back down.  Their intent is to crash the dollar, create some currency wars, and then create their “solution”, which is to put everything under the control of ONE WORLD BANK that would, of course, be printing yet another fiat currency, though most likely in a digital format (not even printed on paper!).  If they did this, there would likely be a bank holiday, perhaps for a week or a month as they gathered up all the cash out there before issuing each of us a piece of plastic with a credit on it… and you wouldn’t have the full value of your money, either.  They are planning on skipping the old plan of the ”Amero” currency for north and south America, and going directly to the world currency, which would either be an SDR or the “Bancor”.  If it isn’t backed by precious metals, it won’t work.  We would then be paying taxes to this one world goverment. Picture the European Union taken world-wide, with everyone being sucked dry by these bankers. Oh… that’s right… they already have sucked us dry!  That private cabal of bankers called the Federal Reserve is working hard, printing another $trillion to further debase our money right now.

Why would it work?  You see, the bullion banks have all been caught doing fractional reserve banking with metals, so for every ounce they actually possessed, they actually sold 100 ounces of paper metals… picture that multiplied over hundreds of thousands of transactions!   COMEX sells to people at the top, in the millions or billions of dollars per transaction.  The bankers only have about a month to cover those shorts, or they’re out of business and they’ll be fined heavily!    It turns out there are several “metals vigilantes”… billionaires that are calling the bullion bankers on their scam and demanding the physical item they’ve got receipts for the purchase of… bless their hearts!  These metal vigilantes are making it impossible for these vampire bullion bankers to get enough metal in their possession because they show up every week to shake them down for what little inventory the bankers have managed to accumulate.   On top of that, JP Morgan and HSBC are both under indictment in several RICO lawsuits already for their naked short-selling of metals to drive the prices down.

We the People can beat them to the silver!  Dry up the marketplace so they can’t meet their shorts!  Yes!  Help the metal vigilantes crash those blood-suckers!  Get all your friends and relatives to go out and buy some silver!   The single most patriotic thing you can do is buy some silver!  This strategy is elegant in its simplicity in that they can’t control it, they can’t buy enough legislators to pass any laws against it, and we aren’t protesting in the streets, so we aren’t put in harm’s way.  This is the Hopi story of the Warrior Mouse brought into the current era!

Think of this in terms of Christmas presents… you can give gifts that are cheap enough right now, and are certain to appreciate in value.   The experts fully expect that silver will return to its classical 16 to 1 trading ratio with gold fairly soon, which means that if gold were already trading at that ratio, with gold at today’s $1368, silver would be trading at $85.50 spot.  Actually, since silver is actually consumed in a number of important industrial applications, and there is currently only about 5 years’ supply out of the ground right now, silver is likely to become even more valued.  How cool is that?

Bundy/BLM Conflict is Replay of Communist Purge of Farmers

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5Z6u8Tt5lV8&feature=player_embedded
The video link is an interview with a former rancher neighbor of the Bundy Ranch in Nevada, whose ranch was essentially taken from him by the Bureau of Land Management under “eminent domain”… get this… to save the desert tortoise population from the cows. Turns out, that with the ranchers and their management of the water and grazing gone, the tortoise population has declined under the BLM watch. The Bundy Ranch is the last ranch left in that county. We have discovered that Senator Harry Reid and his son have essentially been using the BLM to kick ranchers off their lands so they can profiteer from the sales of such “public lands”, most notably to Chinese companies.

There are also some proposed fracking leases on that same “public land”… and we know that fracking only pollutes the underground water supply while stealing the above-ground water supply and creates earthquakes. Imagine bathing in benzene or trying to wash your dishes in flaming water. This is happening all over the country. The elite are stealing the prettiest real estate under Agenda 21. The reason why the mining jobs have been disappearing in West Virginia is because the elites want this pretty country for themselves. A lot of beautiful areas around Texas have been taken in the name of “sustainability” under Agenda 21, and rather than converting them into public use, they’re simply fenced off and kept unused until some well-connected crook can buy it for pennies on the dollar.

We know that China holds the largest portion of US treasury debt and is working swiftly to trade those treasury bonds for hard assets. In fact, all of the BRIIICS nations (Brazil, Russia, Iran, Indonesia, India, China and South Africa) are doing this. They’ve already signed treaties to trade among each other using each other’s currencies, thereby circumventing the dollar in trade settlement. They’re also erecting barriers to US hot currency. Dollar hegemony is essentially gone and it is only a matter of time before those $trillions in US treasury notes come back here to create the hyperinflation that most of us “preppers” have suspected would be happening.

True to form, the fascist takeover of our government is imitating past history… both Soviet and Nazi. You see, it is all about removal and consolidation of privately held resources from the lower classes for exploitation by the upper class, most notably the political and banker class. Part of the consolidation effort after the Bolshevik Revolution involved the theft of farmland. Lenin, Marx and Stalin were all Zionist Jews that took real assets… businesses and property… away from gentiles and gave those assets to their bureaucrat buddies. The main way to get control of a population in the early stages of a takeover is to control the necessities of life: food, energy, money… and removal of free speech and gun rights (we’re seeing all of that). They outlawed religion, and blew up churches all over; only worship of the State was permitted. In the case of farms throughout Russia and Ukraine, bureaucrats were sent to take them over. Farmers that had been working those properties for generations suddenly found themselves as slave labor not even given enough to feed themselves by the new “owners”. Their guns had been taken from them. They couldn’t revolt. Thousands were starved to death. The loss of the expert farmers created food shortages, killing hundreds of thousands more.

We know that this was a TEST. This whole thing at the Bundy Ranch looks to be the beginning to the second American revolution. We know it wasn’t just about the BLM and Reid stealing the land under false pretenses to turn a fat profit. The various federal agencies were flying drones and cataloging the people and their firearms, and were shocked at the patriot turnout… some 5,000 militia members and other supporters.

An FAA no-fly zone was instituted by the feds over that area: http://www.infowars.com/faa-designates-bundy-ranch-a-no-fly-zone in order to keep the press out “so the BLM can do anything it wants”. There were over 85 large vehicles present from 70 federal agencies. They set up a “free speech” zone with the intent of keeping protesters corralled… it didn’t work… the protest took over the highway overpass. The sheriff started out by hiding from journalists (literally under his desk) then came out in support of the feds, followed by a half-hearted mealy-mouthed speech to the gathered people. The sheriff flip-flopped. The sheriff is the ultimate constitutional authority in any county and he should have stood up to the feds and chased them out… if he had, he would have come out a hero rather than a tool. Rancher Bundy wouldn’t let them talk except in front of witnesses. The only way to deal with government thugs is in the light of day.

I’ll be interested to see if a commemorative marker is placed on the freeway overpass in the future, and how quick the sheriff is replaced. I know there’s been a movement to remove Reid for some time now, because he hadn’t been representing Nevada’s citizens for a long time, so I would imagine that will be ramped up. Expect a groundswell of these confrontations to come forward over the summer.

What Aspartame Poisoning Looks Like

We’d always known my brother-in-law was a little off-plumb… he was generally clueless but generally a good person.  Two failed marriages and three kids reared far away from him.  He stayed in Mama’s house during the last few years of her life.  He stayed in the back bedroom and it astonished all of us how he was cluttering that up, and the clutter… piles of printed documents… extending out into the hallway. Mama wasn’t real happy about it, but put up with it. She needed the company while she was in decline. Mama passed early in 2006… after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita had ravaged the region. The funeral preparations and service were all heartfelt. My brother-in-law stayed in that house, in spite of having his own house a few miles away… paid for, no less. My husband and sister-in-law each had other things taking up their focus, so we left the estate, per the will, up to brother-in-law to execute, and he was slow at handling things.

Brother-in-law had a penchant for hooking up with what we thought were bitchy women.  He seemed to have done best in the time between his first and second marriages, long before he got type II diabetes, when he was an electrical engineer, a socially active recreational diver, talented underwater photographer, and rode a motorcycle. When the second marriage ended, he seemed to go into depression, though he seemed to hide it. He had trouble keeping jobs.

Brother-in-law had digestive troubles his whole life, and he eventually wound up on metformin and a range of other meds. I do remember that he always had a diet soda… sometimes with a twist of lime, but always something sudsy and loaded with excitotoxins and stuff to trash his neurology.

Last fall, we took him to the emergency room for what appeared to be a stroke… he met us out in the front yard and we waited with him until he was admitted… and he stayed for a week. Early in the morning on January 18th we got a call from him, asking for a ride to the hospital, but a swing through McDonald’s first… his speech was badly slurred. My husband and I pulled ourselves together and headed out into the primetime morning traffic to Mama’s house… he wasn’t answering the phone on our way in, and he didn’t answer the door. We let ourselves in through the carport door into the kitchen, noting all the trash piled up outside the door. When we opened the door, the sight that greeted us was nothing short of shocking, and the stench likewise would have knocked a buzzard from an offal wagon. The trash… rotting food… soda cans… newspapers… was hip-deep throughout the house. We carefully picked our way through the den into the hallway to find brother-in-law naked, dead weight on the floor of the back bedroom, unable to get up. Time for an ambulance. I tried to open the front door, but it was a new lock. After some rummaging around, we found the correct pair of pants with the keys inside, and I used the keys to let myself outside, while my husband worked with brother-in-law to get some clothing onto him. From the front walk I dialed 911 and described the situation. After making that call, I called both sister-in-law and her daughter, which she lives with. Neither answered. By the time the big firetruck got there and had entered to kick enough junk out of the way to get a gurney in, the daughter called me back and I described the situation, sparing nothing. No point in candy-coating a situation like this. The ambulance arrived and got brother-in-law onto a gurney, then into the transport, and hooked up with a saline IV. The firefighters pulled me to one side saying that if there had been a fire, there wouldn’t have been much they could have done to deal with it… I needed to get that mess handled. I agreed.

We followed the ambulance and waited with brother-in-law in the emergency room cubie until the proper tests had been run, checked by a very young doctor, and  finally admitted 5 hours later.

We called in a family strike force that week to clear out the trash so we could get that house onto the market before the market bottoms out.  My sister-in-law’s older daughter showed up Thursday and bulldozed a path through the trash like the Army Corps of Engineers. Sister-in-law and her other daughter, with breastfeeding baby in tow came in Friday, Saturday and Sunday.  We spent the next three weeks, off and on, working through the trash, taking trunk-loads of newspaper bundles to the recycle bins behind the church on the corner. Neither bathroom (faucets and toilets) was functioning, nor was the water heater, washer or dryer, or dishwasher. The trash in the kitchen was chest high on me, and those weren’t coffee grounds all over the kitchen counters… they were drifts of roach droppings. What he saved was insane. What he piled up was insane.  This wasn’t just being physically sick, it was mentally sick. He had become a trash hoarder. The newspapers and other trash in the back bathroom was literally up to the counter. We sent photos of the mess to brother-in-law’s three adult kids from our cell phones asking for help and essentially were told either they didn’t have the money for gas or didn’t have the time… they’d written him off. It was a shock seeing Mama’s house, which had always been kept neat as a pin from the time it was built, turned into a garbage dump.

The second week I took some items to brother-in-law in the hospital.  He’d already been moved twice by then. I finally asked exactly what was wrong and got the answer… liver cancer. He had a cluster of varying sized tumors in his liver and the oncologist was researching the options for treatment.  He might have had one phone call from each of his kids while at the big hospital, though I doubt it, and none of them visited.  On Monday the 31st, he was transferred to a specialty hospital.  One week later, on February 5th, he passed at 2 PM. His younger daughter, in her 20s, arrived 10 minutes after his death, and his eldest daughter arrived 15 minutes after that, hanging out in that ward, petting his bright yellow hand and sobbing dramatically while trying not to ruin their makeup. That was the first time they had visited him during that round of hospitalization.  I’d like to mention that brother-in-law was only 66 years old, yet looked 96… no muscle/skin tone, sagging jowls, sallow eyes. Way too young to look that bad.

While in the waiting room, I got an earful from the second ex-wife… seems the trash hoarding is a chunk of the reason their marriage ended… she wasn’t even allowed to throw out an old tuna can, and his magazines were sacrosanct… add to all that  stress the fact that she had gone through a radical hysterectomy at age 37 (her hormones were messed up for sure), worked her tail off while rearing two children, and I had the reason why she was so over-the-top bitchy at the time. Yes, he was mentally ill back then.  I finally got brother-in-law’s attorney on the phone, and got information from him of a funeral home with an excellent package deal on cremation. I got hold of that funeral home, exchanged info and scheduled an appointment, then rounded up the charge nurse to pull together the paperwork to discharge brother-in-law’s body to the funeral home and the eldest daughter signed the papers. 

Later that day, at 5:15 PM, we convened at the funeral home, where my husband shelled out the $1300 and the daughter signed the paperwork.  We will hold a funeral when the weather is nice enough to go out on Galveston Bay and place his biodegradable urn among some nice artificial reef.  The good thing is we didn’t have to liquidate his estate to keep him in a hospital. Looks like the IRS might get a chunk of what’s left, though.

It was almost over except for the paperwork of finishing Mama’s estate and figuring out how to handle brother-in-law’s estate.   With all the work we’re saddled with in mopping up the mess, we’re not happy about the lack of help from these sterling offspring of his. Last I heard, which was today, was the absentee son and daughter planned on coming down this weekend to “help” but more likely just to cruise brother-in-law’s house looking for whatever they can take.  That’s fine… they can also handle the physical, legal and financial mess he left as well… as long as they reimburse us for the taxes we paid to keep that house out of the auction on the courthouse steps as well as paying for the cremation.

I attribute a large chunk of his sickness to the diet drinks.
Aspartame (Nutrasweet or Neotame) is a powerful neurotoxin. It is akin to injecting formaldehyde into your veins. It will bring on tumors of all sorts (especially in the brain), stroke, depression, bipolar syndrome, multiple sclerosis, parkinson’s disease, lupus and a range of other diseases… and the aspertame version of these diseases doesn’t respond to the medical pharmacoepia.
Sucralose (Splenda) is also quite deadly. It is chlorinated sugar and compares to injecting chlorine into your veins. Use of this will shrink your thymus (the seat of your immune system) by 40% in a fairly short amount of time, along with the number of red and white blood cells. It will mess up your spleen, too. It will make you susceptible to all kinds of infections, not the least of which is cancer.
Both will mess up your liver and kidneys.
Add to that the fact that he ate corporate fast food loaded with MSG most of the time, which will result in acid reflux, bowel problems, panic attacks, numbness in the extremities, water retention (edema), itching of the skin and a whole range of other problems, most of which brother-in-law presented symptoms of.  Soy in general is an endocrine disruptor and soybean oil will block your uptake of what nutrients you are getting in your diet.

Please pay attention to what you consume. Don’t use this poisonous stuff. I just got through counseling a lady in West Texas whose mother is hooked on the artificial sweeteners and is battling cancer for the third time.  Yes, I can make a nice piece of jewelry for the lady, to give her comfort, but she really needs to detox from these poisons, get on a chelation program and figure out which flavor of cancer she’s got and treat that.

Apart from cancers created by radioactive elements, they are generally classified as either bacterial, viral, fungal or mold. Radioactive elements are showing up in public water supplies because they add “sodium fluoride” which is nothing more than industrial mining effluent sold under that name. Fluoride will give you cancer, rot your bones, mess up your teeth and dumb you down.  It’s a soft-kill, just like the vaccines, aspartame, sucralose and MSG.

Republican Swing?

Every time I hear from my mom, she’s talking about getting  the democrats out of office. True, we need to do that. Problem is, the republicans have gone “neocon”, meaning they are no longer in favor of reduced government, reduced taxes and reduced infringement of government into our lives.  Consequently, both parties are effectively the SAME. Both are fascist and both are obviously going to continue taking us to war over the thinnest of non-excuses. Both are printing money willy-nilly and both are giving that money, and the debt it represents, to the banking cabal that is intent on owning the entire world. Both are fully intent on destroying America, both through the unprecedented growth of a police/surveillance state, removal of the borders, shipping all the jobs off-shore, and unfettered currency printing, thereby destroying the entire economy.

We are replaying several world epochs right now. America has long since entered the age of empire, and we’re now fighting two-going-on-three wars in a pointless attempt to own the entire Eurasian corridor from the Mediteranean to the Pacific… if you don’t believe me just take out a map.  If you’ve listened to Faux News lately, you know they’re planning on taking us to war on Iran, and Iran has been fully armed by Russia.  We can’t afford these wars, to say the least, and the loss of dollar hegemony assures we won’t have the ability to bully other countries for very long.

Bush got that ball rolling with the 9-11 reichstag fire and subsequent introduction of the whole surveillance state to place Americans on lock-down even as illegal immigrants run roughshod over all of us, unabated.

Obama is intent on doing exactly what the Nazis did: regulate all small business out of business. There is a provision in the ObamaCare law that says that any business spending $600 or more in a calendar year with any contractor or other business, the business owner has to issue a 1099 statement to that contractor or business. That means that people like me, with a small home-based business, will have to issue a 1099 to Office Depot, Sams Club, and anyone else.  Any long-distance trucker has to issue a 1099 to every gas station he visits in the course of a year, and each refuel is something like $2000 – $3000.  Never mind the fact that we’re already reporting those expenses as deductions and the other parties are reporting those transactions as income.  It is insanity.  Requiring everyone to purchase insurance is patently unconstitutional, and Obama recently admitted that his scheme actually added expense, increased premiums and still didn’t cover pre-existing conditions, still leaving people without care.

The neocons got their real start under good old President Reagan. Back then, the neocons were the crazies that were kept locked in the back rooms. He let them out just often enough to give Rumsfield a free ride by forcing the FDA to approve aspertame (Nutrasweet) for use in foods, in spite of spotty or nonexistent research to prove its safety… and we now know that it is a powerful neurotoxin.

The other world epoch we’re replaying right now is economic collapse.  They’ve been printing trillions of dollars, and the only thing keeping the big inflation from hitting full-force has been the fact that the 6 big banks that own 80% of our economy have been playing with it for a while, keeping the momentum slow by not lending money. The Federal Reserve loans the U.S. every dollar it prints at interest, and is about to start buying the U.S. Treasury Bills that other foreign countries are refusing to buy at this point, meaning they’re collecting from us coming and going. Right now, the U.S. total debt is so high that the government can’t even pay the interest on it, and the total is running over $150 trillion, probably closer to $200 trillion.  The U.S. debt is actually more than the combined gross national product for the entire planet, several times over.  They will likely continue to print more money.

 So what happens if we sweep republicans into office every chance we get? The ones they replace will still have until January 20th, roughly 3 months or so to do whatever they want with impunity.  Secondly, if the new representatives and senators are not constitutionalists, we will still have all of the same problems because they will all still be owned by the banking cartel.  We can expect things to continue going downhill.

Let me make a prediction:   The Tea Parties have essentially already been coopted from the inside by the republicans.  The republicans will NOT repeal ObamaCare, at least not in entirety. They will continue to raise taxes, and print more money, and give everything away to their big-business cronies.  The only hope we have is to do everything we can to elect constitutionalists instead of republican lawyers who have already sold us out. 

When they’ve managed to tank our currency, they WILL take us to war, and it will likely be a world war.   I also predict massive tax protests, civil unrest and further expanded police state.  They’re already planning on a replacement currency called the Bancor, which would also be a fiat currency, still issued by the central banks at interest.  What we really have to do is stop playing by the banking cabal’s rules.  The smart people are already planning ahead and getting themselves out of their system.

News and New Trends in Medicine Jewelry…

Silver is back up to $29.17  
Yeah, they print more “paper silver” to suppress the price, then they find it goes back up in a couple of days.  Silver should already be up over $50.
JPMorgan has finally come forward http://inflation.us/jpmorgancoveringsilver.html to admit their naked short selling scheme and their current efforts to cover those shorts. Options shorts are supposed to be covered by the third Friday of every month, and we’re in December, so all of the metals banks (CME, ComEx, etc.) only have through Friday the 17th to gather enough physical metals to cover their shorts for the year. They will have to go out on the open market to buy the metals, and they’re gonna lose their asses when they do.  When that happens, the suppression of precious metals prices is going to disappear and the prices will skyrocket. You might want to scrape up some cash and head down to your local bullion dealer while you can.  Silver is how a lot of us are going to preserve our wealth.  Don’t keep savings in the bank; take any excess money after paying bills and buying groceries and buy some silver.
Now… as far as my own operations. When I receive an order from someone to make a piece of special medicine jewelry for them, I tune in and go though the possible components that may go on that piece. More people are asking for shielding type jewelry… Defunkers and the like… and within that context, it is coming through from the aspects of the customers’ Higher Selves that they require some added “stealth energy”.  This generally involves adding some mother-of-pearl beads to an assembly.  You see, any shell, whether mother-of-pearl, abalone, puka or paua shell all have that “shell energy” which makes you less noticeable.  It makes it so you can go about your daily routine without being bothered by anyone else because you essentially become invisible to the unawakened.
I first became aware of just how powerful the shell energy is when a lady I know had set up at a pow-wow some years ago. Her husband is a master silversmith… magnificent work. She sat behind the table, and people walked by, looking at the many beautiful pieces, but not seeming to notice her at all, and therefore not purchasing from her.  At length she finally complained to me. I pointed out all the paua shell jewelry she was wearing. I got her to switch it out in favor of turquoise, which is a good merchant stone. From that point onward, she made sales.
I have one friend in New York. She had to run the gauntlet of beggars and gang members… two blocks to her subway stop, through the subways, and another two blocks from the other end of the subway ride to her job.  She was constantly being accosted. Might I also say that she is also a very pretty woman.  I made her a special “Defunker” bracelet with some mother-of-pearl on it, amped it up and sent it to her. She noticed almost immediately that she was not being bothered, or noticed, by either  the denizens that bothered her on the way to work, but was also ignored outright by the people she worked with. In the lunchroom, she listened in on a conversation regarding herself between two employees who hadn’t noticed she was seated not four feet from her!
How important is this? In my line of work, it amounts to a major shift. Shielding is one thing, but making yourself invisible is something else entirely. To me, in deference to the times we are in, it means that the people wearing these pieces need additional protection. They are likely in areas where things will become frightening, if not outright hazardous, as the currency tanks. The aspect of Spirit, working through me, is providing for their protection in this way, making it possible for them to go about their days without becoming a target. 
I think I need to build a few bracelets along these lines for my sisters and mother
 for Christmas.

The Fine Art of Copping-Out

Being “on the path” eventually means detaching from all of the drama and entanglements that we came into with our birth families, and by extension, that which we wander into in the workplace and other social environments.  The ability to emotionally detach while maintaining a mild-enough interest to follow such interpersonal events is what the Buddhists call “compassionate detachment”.  In other words… we’re there for the other people in our lives, but we can’t be embroiled in their little ego-dramas.  

We can love the other people in our lives enough to leave them the hell alone. We can also choose to get involved just enough to ask a few questions in order to get them to think things through and possibly help them to understand and release any operative patterns they may have.  Of course, there is a point where one must back off in order to allow that person to grow. 

I have noticed a lexicon developing around “compassionate detachment”.   When someone tries to enforce their ego’s point of view, we may calmly say something like “Whatever.” or “Isn’t that interesting?” or “Oh, is that right?”   Each phrase is an acknowledgement of the person bothering us, and each has its own feeling, while still being generally non-confrontational or non-argumentative.  People like to be acknowledged, so it’s nice to do that, while not getting embroiled in their crap.  

If someone is really trying to drag you into some kind of drama, for example, looking for someone to take their side in an argument.  Then your acknowledging comment can escalate to something along the lines of  “Well, I’m not really interested in that. ” or “I’m not involved.” or “It’s really none of my business.” or “That’s between you two to work out.” or perhaps even “Talk to the hand.”   You get the idea.  The idea is to draw a boundary that such people will know not to cross.  If it pisses them off, so what? They’ll move on to the next drama. 

This is especially important to remember during the holiday season, when people are dragged together out of some feeling of obligation, and usually get stressed out being forced to be nice to people they have yet to resolve differences with. Ever notice why the bars are open on Christmas?  When the family celebration is over, people will go unwind at a bar, glad to have Christmas over with. What I’m suggesting here is that you change your own attitude and demeanor and avoid the bar altogether. 

So what if your sister doesn’t like your pecan pie recipe? Why not invite her to make it this year? Or you both can make your own versions.  Offer to make something else.  Offer to just show up with an appetite. Nothing is worth getting stressed over.  Maybe she’s jealous of your recipe, or it’s some kind of control thing.  Maybe she wants to be the hero. You don’t have to play her game, do you?  Nope.  Learn to detach and go with the flow.  

Okay, so you’ve got a battle-axe sister-in-law that’s actively rude to you and acts like she’s doing everyone a favor by being there.  Let her have the friggin’ kitchen.  “Oh, I see you have this well under control so I’ll just leave you to it.” Go to another room. Avoid the bitch.  She’ll eventually divorce out of the family and you won’t have to deal with her at all.  

Your feathers cannot be ruffled if you don’t allow it. Shift your consciousness.  Be like a really big rock in the middle of a stream… the water babbles and flows around you, but you are unmoved. You’ll find that you don’t have to defend yourself if you don’t get worked up over anything and don’t get sucked into anyone else’s drama.  The Zen of the Rat’s Ass.

Pointers for Crafters

I know a lot of people who have gone into crafting various items for sale. Nice stuff… feels good, looks good, and ideally geared for a specific market segment. Believe me, I’m rooting for you! I want you to succeed!  In an effort to assist, I hereby offer some very basic advice.

BE UNIQUE.  Sell the sizzle.  Everything may fall into specific merchandise categories, but the idea is to make your product stand out with a different approach.  You can either invent your own categories or go broke buying pay-per-clicks for “jewelry”.

KNOW YOUR MARKET NICHE.  If you are going for interior decorators, then fine. My niche is obviously “new age” or “metaphysical”, so everything is tailored to that audience.  If you do wholesale, you have to know the types of shops to aim your message at, and what grabs their attention.  I’ve worked fairs where people balked at my pricing up until they watched – and probably felt – me blessing a freshly-crafted piece of jewelry… then they BOUGHT!

BUILD A WEBSITE. It has become the cornerstone of merchandising that you cannot do without these days. It doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg… you will need a computer, a copy of Microsoft FrontPage (something like $200), your own URL (that’s the address for your website. The price varies by how long you purchase the rights to your URL), and a web-hosting service (a server that people access your website from… I pay $5.95 a month).  The tough part is getting photographs of your products… and good digital cameras are a lot cheaper these days . Make sure your web-host has FrontPage extensions enabled. I have gone to doing almost nothing but web sales and the occasional trunk show to get rid of old inventory… sure beats the hell out of hauling stuff all over the state, setting it up and having to stay with it all day long hoping for enough sales to cover my expenses.

DISPLAY.  I’ve worked a lot of little fairs… psychic fairs, music festivals, pow-wows and such.  Spend some time on creating your display to both show your craft in an optimal setting and to protect it.  It has to be strong enough, heavy enough, easy to set-up and tear-down, and so forth.  If you are doing outdoor events, you have to gear your display so that it will hold up in windy weather.  You will absolutely need an E-Z Up canopy if you do outdoor events, and be sure to spring for the side panels.  If you have lots of little items, like rings, you will probably need to put them in glass display cases, away from little klepto-maniacs.   

ADVERTISE.  Trade links with merchants and webrings, register with wholesale directory sites, consider getting on Google Adwords and Yahoo for their targeted pay-per-click programs (be real specific on your keywords). Run select print advertising, even if it is just classifieds in the backs of targeted magazines.  Make sure you have enough money to run a decent campaign, and make sure you hit your product’s prime buying season (with me that would be August through February).  Some things advertise well in local publications, some in national. Check the pricing and negotiate to get the most bang for your buck.

WHERE TO SELL?  Some crafts are well adapted to the local flea market, some aren’t. Some do well at church or community craft fairs, county fairs, chili cook-offs, barbecue cook-offs, motorcycle fairs, music festivals, rodeos, and so on. You have to figure out where the market for your merchandise is… what seems to be moving at what event, and what the ideal price range is for that event.  I’ve been to fairs where I made a lot of money $1 to $5 at a time, and others where I made all my sales $20-$50 at a time. 

I knew a psychic who did the whole circuit of redneck bible-belt county fairs… dressed as a gypsy… with a crystal ball… and really made a living at it.  The costume and playful “gypsy” demeanor kept the “fundies” from feeling threatened and her expertise in palmistry kept customers coming to her.

NETWORK.  Most all business is conducted through networking of one sort or another.  If you vend at fairs, get to know the other merchants around you and find out what fairs and festivals they vend at.  Swap e-mail addresses.  Send each other reviews of different vending venues.  Caravan to events and vend near one another for safety.  I was referred to a biker festival that I couldn’t work, but I sent the info to a friend, who got the last booth space and was able to pay the rent on her domicile as a result.  That buys a LOT of goodwill. 

DO NOT CONSIGN.  Repeat: DO NOT consign!  As you and your crafts get known, you will be invited to put your stuff for sale in people’s shops. They’ll walk up to your booth at a fair and oogle your crafts, and tell you how much they’d love to have your stuff in their shop.  Just smile sweetly and tell them that you do wholesale with a small minimum purchase.  Of course the merchant wants your stuff… that way they can populate their shop with inventory without having to buy it (and that’s poverty mentality).  Since the merchant has nothing invested, he has no reason to push or take care of the consigned inventory.  You, however, will run the very real risk of losing your stuff.  Either an undercapitalized shop will fold without warning and your stuff will disappear, or your stuff will get damaged. If they can’t buy your stuff, don’t give it to them.  You have money, time and materials invested, so you have to be paid for your goods.  You can offer to do a trunk show at their shop, giving them a percentage of your sales, if they advertise it as an event on their calendar. The most you should be willing to do is take a post-dated check for part of their purchase (try to get ½ of the purchase up front).  I’ve been there.  

Resist the urge to put your wares in a “crafters’ mall”… you are even more likely to lose them. You don’t want to have your stuff taken in a landlord-lien arrangement.  You don’t want your stuff to be locked out of your reach. Most have contracts that demand that you put in a full day’s work at the crafters’ mall a couple of times a week.  Such an arrangement restricts your ability to work festivals where the crowds would be more apt to spend money with you.  

BOOKKEEPING.  One method that helps the most at tax time is to write the events you’ve worked on a calendar, along with mileage, meals, motel, booth fee, and sales. Put the sales tax you collected at each event in an envelope and keep it separate from all other monies so you don’t get caught flat-footed when the time comes to fill out that state sales tax form… you should just have to make sure your figures match and get a money order.  All this also makes it much easier to do income tax. Consider investing in Quicken or other tax preparation software. Spread sheet programs are great for keeping records of sales, customer mailing lists and festival contacts.   I still use an accountant, but I walk in with everything categorized, documented, and totaled, to keep the accountant’s cost down.  

OPEN A SHOP?   Well… I can only tell you what’s worked at all the successful shops I’ve seen.  A crafter that is experienced in marketing his wares will eventually get some insight into market dynamics.  Some will take this step because there is a certain ego satisfaction in “owning a shop”.  Some don’t feel the need to be tied down to a shop as it can be a drag. If your shop is in a weekend flea market, then your weekends are tied up so you can’t do festivals, and you will have to deal with the dickering mentality and the neighborhood hoods.  If your shop is in a shopping center, you’re also looking at an ironclad lease contract.  If you want a shop, my recommendation will be to do the research on the area, create a business plan and get a loan so you will have the money to advertise as well as survive the first two years in business.

If you open a “new age” shop, do so in late summer so you can have the stock for the Christmas and New Years’ holidays, and begin advertising before you open your doors.  After February, the sales tend to ebb and flow at a much less intense rate.  The more successful shops tend to keep a full calendar of lectures and workshops going to keep traffic coming into the shop year-round. If there is room, consider having a periodic well-advertised open-house or psychic fair to introduce new people to the shop. Have a guest book so people can sign up to get your newsletter.

Most successful “new age” shops will also tend to have private spaces for a psychic reader, astrologer or some kind of health professional like a hypnotherapist, Reiki Master, massage therapist or reflexologist. Such professionals build a relationship with the shop… they bring in business by promoting their services, while the shop benefits from traffic, books appointments and either collects a percentage or flat rental fee for the space.  It is important that your instructors and resident readers/healers are of the highest integrity.  The best “new age” shops build themselves as a resource to the community, not just gift shops.

How to Recover America… Grass Roots Approach

Gerale Celente of the Trends Institute has been very vocal about where we’re headed, both America in specific, and the world in general. In as few words as possible, most of the world’s governments have been taken over from within by incredibly greedy people working for other incredibly greedy power-mad people who want to turn us all into feudal fiefdoms… at best. 

They got Greece to melt down… people rioted and some died, and the whole country came to a halt. Greece is in the European Union, so their troubles are not necessarily their own… they’ve been forced to purchase arms they couldn’t afford, their currency is not their own, and their government answers to a bunch of private bankers. There’s a bunch more countries about to fall down pretty soon.

The U.S. is actually already something like 24 TRILLION in debt, thanks to wars, foreign aid, bailouts for the gangsters running the economy into the ground (Goldman Sachs, anyone?), and all of the major legislation that’s come down the pike for the past 10 years is loaded with pork-barrel giveaways that have nothing to do with what the legislation was supposed to be about. We all know that. We also know that none of these gutless wonders is ever going to take the actions that really are necessary to fix the basis of the problem:  1.) Return to the letter of the Constitution and stick with it.   2.) Do an Andrew Jackson and arrest the members of the Federal Reserve and declare the debt service owed to them null and void. When Jackson did that, he ushered in the single most prosperous time in the nation’s history.

I’ve already gone over what you can personally do to prepare for a currency melt-down in previous blog entries:  buy and store food “Mormon style”, buy precious metals… and stockpile ammo for your guns.  Anything else you can do to make your household self-sufficient in the event of loss of electricity and water is also a good thing.  It is a logical thing to do, especially if you’ve been through a gulf coast hurricane, and even better if you can weather any potential civil unrest safely.  Now, my metaphysical/spiritual friends will say that they refuse to put that kind of vibe out there because they don’t want to empower the negativity.  Okay… I hope that works for you, Bunky.  If fear is the mind-killer, then preparedness removes fear from the mix and empowers the individual.  It never hurts to have a “Plan B”, or a “Plan C” for that matter. 

Now… what can WE do to recover America?  That’s right, us little people!  The non-Morgans, non-Rothshields, and non-Bushs of the world.  Yes, we have the power!  First of all, we can become more involved in local politics, and force the local politicians to behave. Most of us homeowners have seen our property taxes skyrocket because of the housing melt-down… and it isn’t fair to jack up the taxes on us responsible people just because we are still in the same house.  School districts can bloody well shelve their expansion projects until they can afford it. 

Secondly, and related to that, is VOTE OUT ALL INCUMBENTS!  We need to get rid of the jerks that have been selling us out and replace them with constitutionalist candidates that will actually work towards fixing the problems. A good candidate will get rid of the country-club retirement and health care plans that Congress currently enjoys forever, even if that congressman only got elected once. Come on, now, it’s a part-time job at best. A good candidate will force recalls of all legislation based on constitutionality.  A good candidate will be all about looking at the money trail and cutting off the leaches.  For example, we don’t need the Department of Energy… it doesn’t do what it was originally created to do, which was explore and encourage alternative sources of energy… it now caters to the big oil, big coal and nuclear power companies.

Our every day campaign, something we can do that is sustainable and really will help:  Buy American… and buy localIf you need something to fix the house, you go down to your locally-owned hardware store and patronize them, instead of WalMart or any other chain store. If you want to go out to eat, you patronize a local cafe instead of some chain restaurant that serves packaged crap. Pick quality.    

Spend more and buy quality:  Buy candles that are made by a local candle-maker… they will probably offer far cleaner and safer products rather than some toxic petroleum crap from China.  Have a local tailor make your suits… you’ll get a creation that will wear like iron. Buy quality shoes and boots, and when they are getting worn, you take them to a local shoe repair specialist for rehab.

Read the labels.  We know that Whole Foods has been selling frozen produce grown in China as “organic”, and certainly charging for the privilege.  If it comes from China, Indonesia, India, Mexico or anyplace else other than America… you DON’T buy it!  HEB offers produce from local growers, which makes it fresher and safer to eat.   Patronize the local farmers’ markets and learn to put up your own preserves so you will have healthy food out of season… and see if you can find some people who can swap with you!

Get it?  Don’t spend money you don’t have, and when you do spend, be responsible with your spending to support American businesses!  Each dollar that comes into a given area in the form of a paycheck impacts the local economy somewhere between 7 and 12 times as it circulates, generating more jobs, more paychecks and more circulation of money.

ObamaCare and Other Fascist Grabs

If you get the chance, give a listen to the Alex Jones Infowars interview with Judge Napolitano.  I have to tell you, it is quite empowering! We do have a lot more options than you might ordinarily think.
http://www.infowars.com/judge-napolitano-on-alex-jones-tv-obamacare-is-unconstitutional/
Gang… we are staring down the abyss.  Obama — or rather Soetoro — and his cabal are rushing to lock onto every manner of controlling us they can possibly invent before the November mid-term elections.  Right now, there are 14, going on 16 states filing suits stating that ObamaCare is unconstitutional, and mostly citing the 9th and 10th amendments of the Constitution. Truth is, ObamaCare violates MOST of the constitution… period.  Reading down the list: it also violates the 4th, 8th and the 14th amendments, and also violates a number of articles.  
Am I kidding? No!
*    According to the rules of how legislation is supposed to be done, this bill was written by the insurance industry’s lobby, and rammed through congress without anyone reading or understanding it. Legislation is supposed to originate in the House, then go to the Senate, then back to the House if a lot of changes where made, and if not, it goes to the president. It is a violation of article 1, sections 7 and 9.  This is an example of midnight legislation, similar to the 16th amendment that gave us the income tax.
*     It gives illegal aliens open access to health care here, with no I.D., even while they don’t pay income taxes here, while it requires tax-paying citizens to have that accursed “national I.D.” card we spent the last 8 years fighting off.
*    It takes away our freedom of privacy.
*    It forces us to buy insurance we don’t want and can’t afford.
*    It legally forces us to purchase a PRIVATE PRODUCT by a company… a violation of all the anti-trust laws.
*    It tells us what to do and limits our choices, threatening excessive fines and imprisonment.
*    If gives an unseen non-elected official total control over our health care. It allows that official to disallow health care coverage to anyone with a pre-existing condition, including children.
*    It contains numerous industrial pork-barrel giveaways… including the vaccine and drug manufacturers.
*    It does NOT contain any attempt at tort reform. 
*    It is an unfunded mandate.
*    It is a massive redistribution of wealth… period.
Obama and his cabal have lied time and again, not just about this legislation, but all of their campaign promises.  Obama is not a socialist… he is a totalitarian and a fascist. He wants absolute control over every aspect of your life. 
Obama himself has already perjured himself in all 50 states…  ”Barack Hussein Obama” is not his legal name… it is Barry Soetoro on his certificate of adoption by his Indonesian stepfather, which, if he wasn’t already born abroad, certifies that he doesn’t qualify to be president under the constitution.  
You can bet that his bunch will be doing their best to ram through “cap and trade” as quick as they can, before the mid-term elections tosses most of the democrats (and hopefully all incumbents) out on their ears. They are rushing even as we speak. Pelosi openly made threats to the democrats in the House to get them to vote for the ObamaCare bill, telling them that they had to do this and “take the hit” for the party. Voting the “party line” instead of their conscience or the will of the constituents is more than grounds for not only voting them out at the next election, but calling them back to their districts and pressing charges against them.
You can also bet your bottom dollar that they will most likely stage a terror event just to grab even more control. I would guess that a lot of the vandalism on campaign offices was probably staged, too.  Just watch. Things are getting interesting.

SHTF Water Filtration

Apparently what I’ve been telling people on my blogs is sinking in and I am beginning to receive specific questions from folks on various aspects of prepping. In this one I am addressing the aspect of water.

Now, we all know we can live without food for a over a week, but we would die without water in just a couple of days. The average adult requires an intake of a minimum of 2 liters of water per day just to maintain basic bodily functions, but not necessarily to take out the trash.

So… water figures large in the prepper mindset.

Those of us in the South, where we get hurricanes and even tropical storms that can sit on top of your neighborhood for days at a time, are accustomed to dealing with this.  Most of us cope by purchasing flats of bottled water for drinking and then filling the bathtub with water for basic sanitation purposes.  It isn’t tough to collect gallon milk containers and sterilize them so you can store water for the short term. There are collapsible 5-gallon water containers you can purchase at most camping supply stores, and some of the prepper sites sell collapsible containers with siphons sized perfectly for your bathtub.  Most of you gardeners probably have those barrels positioned under your rain gutter downspouts… another great resource.

Preserving Water:

If you can purchase some Lechenya Meera “Oxygenics 2002″ concentrate… that is best, but it is hard to get hold of.  One lady I sent money to would only sell a gallon at a time, and some 8 months later finally sent me a pint of it… I need to bug her some more.  If you can’t get the lechenya, there are some other methods.  

There is this stuff called “ION” by Premier Marketing, which is a formula of stabilized oxygen molecules in a solution of sodium chloride carbonate and sulfate. The trick here is that it takes 20 drops per gallon to preserve water… assuming you have water that is already potable. It says that to clean an 8 ounce glass could take 5 to 20 drops.  I’d stick to using it as a water preservative, but it does have other medicinal uses.
http://peggylayton.net/index.php?app=ccp0&ns=prodshow&ref=ion&sid=8c730umg8a73y1yee7ekwbkpe1jhjb69

Another healthy way to preserve water is to make colloidal silver and using that to preserve your stored water against corruption by algae.  http://www.thenewsurvivalist.com/health_care_after_a_disaster.html  Is a great little site that gives a nice tutorial for making colloidal silver using simple supplies, such as two pieces of your silver bullion. I personally gave up the batteries by getting a pair of alligator clamps from Fry’s Electronics and twisting a spare grounded electrical cord salvaged from an old appliance around the fittings, and using the wall outlet… took a lot less time. You do need to use storebought distilled water.

The next thing would be chlorine bleach: http://www.doh.wa.gov/phepr/handbook/purify.htm  Bleach is not bad in a pinch, but I have to remind you that after you purify the water, you really need to let it stand so the bleach will evaporate.

Your camping supply stores offer various brands of water purification tablets or drops, mostly based on iodine.  Again, good if you need it. I keep this stuff around, too, both in the closet and in our bug-out bags.

Here is a wonderful video on how to make a Berkey style water filtration system using simpler, cheaper materials:    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DIgHkKgmZAU 

Sources for filter cartridges include:
http://www.waterfiltersonline.com/
http://www.water-filters-purifiers-softeners.com/a/ppf/id/23/cat/MatrikX+Carbon+Filters/sdp.asp
and  http://www.purewaterproducts.com/gravity.htm which I have purchased from. They have instruction on how to create a two-stage gravity water filtration system on this page, which I have personally purchased:   http://www.purewaterproducts.com/gravityinstructions.htm  Basically, you place the ceramic candle in the dirty water on top to remove the microorganisms and particulates, then let it process down through the carbon filter to remove any funky swampwater taste, and then you will have clean, potable water coming out into your container on the bottom. This way, if you find yourself, say, in the aftermath of a hurricane with no running water and running out of potable water supplies, then you will be able to carry a bucket down to the nearest bayou and filter that for your needs. This applies nicely to that YouTube video I gave the link to above.

Essentially, you need to create as many ways to store and to cleanse water for your survival as you would have of ways to create fire and to cook… at least five.

Made My Own Tortillas

Okay… I’ve been storing all sorts of pantry essentials ”just in case”. I found two 10-Lb. bags of organic unbleached all-purpose flour at Costco. The idea is that if I’m stuck at home and can’t get to a grocery store, or if the stores are depleted like they tend to be around a hurricane, I’d still be able to at least make tortillas, pancakes, cornbread and the like. I have an automatic breadmaker, but haven’t explored it as yet… the instruction booklet is pretty thick. I’m building my confidence so I can get to the point where purchasing bags of red wheat and a grain grinder won’t seem like an experiment likely to go to waste. I’ve heard from people who have been grinding their own flour and baking with it, and they say their health  and vitality have increased greatly.

I got on the web and looked up recipes for making flour tortillas. They vary quite a bit. This may take a little experimentation.

I conferred with Virginia Garcia, who said to get a rolling pin… the considered tortilla presses a waste of time. Try finding an old-fashioned rolling pin in this day and time!  After drawing blanks at Family Dollar, my normal grocery stores and Big Lots, I finally combed the area resale shops. I finally found one at Bear Creek Assistance Ministries. It had been used in a nursery school… it had Play-Doh on it. I took it home and bleached it, and worked it over with steel wool, then rubbed some coconut oil into it. It works like a champ!

My first attempt at making tortillas… well, the recipe didn’t have enough oil in it. I basically wound up with chapati bread. Using the good organic flour, grapeseed oil, Himalayan sea salt and aluminum-free baking powder, it really tasted good, though. Nice and clean, and not at all like the crappy bagged ones I’ve been getting at the grocery store… that stuff won’t even go moldy!  I slapped a little butter on one of mine and it was perfectly yummy. The tough part was rolling the dough out thin enough. I can see the point in getting a proper griddle for the purpose, so that will be next on the shopping list.

My point in getting organic, unbleached flour is a good one. Most flour on the market is processed with alloxan, which effectively rots your pancreas from the inside-out.  That includes most commercial breads, pastries, crackers, pasta and tortillas.  If you’re going to be eating this stuff, you might as well get the cleanest stuff you can find. 

I’ve been buying this flour on sale whenever possible. I picked up 5 Lb. bags of King Arthur brand organic unbleached flour for $3.24 each, put them in the freezer for about a week to kill any possible bugs, then suck-wrapped the bags with a spoonful of Diatomaceous earth in the bottom of the bag. I always date what I put into storage.

Now, tortillas are the darling of home-economics teachers everywhere… you can do a lot with them. They can be breakfast, lunch or dessert. They can be a side dish like a piece of bread, or a component of the main dish, like enchiladas. 

I plan on finding a source for organic masa harina to make corn tortillas with. I guess I could try with the organic cornmeal I’ve got, though.

Pulling Out of the Banks

Well, I have this to show you… a short documentary video about the use of actual gold and silver in place of inflating currency. I find it most enlightening and heartening that these people in Indonesia are sophisticated enough to frank their own currency instead of losing their wealth to the inflation of fiat currency.  It also makes me feel a tad depressed that the majority of Americans, and most of Europe, aren’t getting this concept down pat. In fact, I think the majority of America and Europe are in for a very rude awakening. http://www.davidicke.com/articles/the-money-scam/37146-gold-dinar-silver-dirham-

Up until fairly recently, both the U.S. and Great Britain made it against the law to own gold bullion. Both thankfully rescinded those insane laws.  The U.S. made it unlawful to own gold bullion back during the Great Depression… they made anyone stupid enough to do so, cash in their gold at $20 an ounce, and once that was done, the gold was revalued  at $30 an ounce. That was a huge difference back then, and a travesty as well.  In fact, I distinctly remember an old Disney movie starring Dean Jones in which the main character discovered that he had a duck that laid solid gold eggs, and the character fretted about being caught with this “bullion” by the authorities. 

I expect some similar attempt to rescind any of our attempts to maintain control over our personal wealth by the NWO types. Obama is already considering imposing a transaction fee on all bank transactions… like if you go on-line and move $100 from checking to savings, you’ll pay a 2% tax on that simple movement. Or when your paycheck hits the bank, they would collect a percentage of that (on top of what they’ve already withheld)… then there’s that “carbon tax” thing they’re trying to soak us for. It also looks like they’re going to try to get people off of cash so they can be assured of collecting these taxes.  The minute you hear that crud, you definitely keep your paychecks away from the bank. I fully expect to see alternative check cashing services cropping up at that point. I expect to see a lot of alternative commerce in general.

These central bankers are doing to the U.S. exactly what they’ve done to the countries in the European Union, as well as so many other countries around the world. In each and every case, they sink their hooks into a country’s economy, rack up the debt service, then impose “austerity measures”… they hike taxes and take away pensions. Yes, they’re doing that here. It is total economic enslavement. We have to stop it. Iceland did… their populace elected some normal non-politician citizens to clean up the mess, then arrested the officials that had created the mess, then decided NOT to pay the IMF for the debt that the country did nothing to rack up. Iceland is showing the way.

I agree that people are waking up to the fact that we are being plundered by a cabal of private bankers. I also understand that most of the money is being held and used by less than 10 big banks, who have managed to bribe congressmen to relax the regulations they had to follow, and then privatize all profits while pushing all losses to the public sector.  We need to quit subsidizing these people. When you add together what we pay in property taxes, sales taxes, income taxes and now the taxes that are going to be charged on employer-provided health insurance, it  is only a short matter of time before we see a full-on taxpayer revolt.

I’ve been pestering people, especially my family, to hurry up and at least buy some friggin’ silver. It is now up to $19.84 spot, meaning that you’ll pay over $22 for a 1 oz. silver eagle. I’ve been buying silver off and on since it hit $9 an ounce, so granted, I’m feeling pretty good about this. It won’t be long before the tipping point on silver at around $22-$24 spot per ounce will spur the market. You might as well buy silver now before the price catches up with its availability. I fully expect silver to re-index back to the old 16 to 1 ratio with gold, fairly soon.

I’m slowly pulling away from the banks, myself.   I  recommend not keeping any more in the bank than is absolutely necessary to write checks against to pay bills. I also recommend keeping cash in the house to cover bills in the event of a “bank holiday”, which looks inevitable. You know the utility companies, mortgage companies and grocery stores will continue doing business in regular money long after it loses its value. The mortgage company is under contract to accept the “currency of the realm”, so that’s a no-brainer.

One other thing… don’t put anything in a bank’s “safe deposit box”.  These things are neither regulated nor insured, and bank employees have all the keys and can plunder them at will. Get yourself a fireproof box for your important papers.

Defeating the New World Order

May 12, 2013

 

By now, even the most somnambulant
person in America should be aware that things are completely out of whack. The
continuing attempts at an overall gun grab or at least making it ridiculously
tough to buy guns and ammo (or reloading supplies for that matter), along with
the increase in taxes to fund ObamaCare (at least $100 more per paycheck among
my friends) and the inflation as visible in the grocery stores (higher prices,
smaller packaging and less contents) should have become evident to all by now.

 

People are slowly waking up to all
the false flag terror attacks as in Boston, MA; Aurora, CO; Sandy Hook, CT; the
Oklahoma City Federal Building bombing, 9-11, and others going way back in
history. We’ve been sold a pile of lies to plunge each generation of young
adults into pointless wars to make the oligarchs richer. The government is
refusing to take care of all of these veterans, and some 20,000 vets are dying
each year for lack of access to health care they are entitled to.

 

In the meantime, China has long
since ceased buying US treasuries and is currently one of the globe’s largest
purchasers of gold and silver while quietly spending those US treasuries buying
up all sorts of assets here in America before the dollar crashes once and for
all. The Federal Reserve is printing some $2 trillion a year for the US
government to spend (at interest to us) while also printing and spending an
additional $85 billion (at interest to us) every month to buy $45 billion in US
treasuries (called “quantitative easing”, which pays the Fed. interest from us)
and to dump $40 billion into the top tier globalist banks to gamble with.

 

We
are about to see another stock market crash.

The stock market is crashed every time it stays at around 15,000, for any
length of time. The last two times were the dot-com bubble and the mortgage
bubble… this time the bubble is the Dow itself. The only reason for the stock
market being this high is that all the big corporations have already laid-off
everyone they can to pay dividends. With no industrial output or sales, this was
probably the last profit cycle we will ever see.

 

The world saw the bank bail-in on
Cyprus, which is now the new model of theft. Most of the other Eurozone countries
are planning to do the same thing, and a federal court judge in America recently
ruled that insolvent banks CAN steal depositors’ money to pay uninsured investors (Google it). The
FDIC, which is supposed to insure bank deposits has $60 billion to insure some
$12 trillion in Americans’ savings… there simply isn’t that much cash in existence.
Get the cash now and use it to your advantage. Wake up, gang!

 

Let
me get this across to you straight:  the
merger of government and corporate powers is FASCISM.  Some call it corporatism. That is what we
have. Two completely separate set of rules, the bad ones for WE THE PEOPLE, and
the good ones for the banksters and their political minions.

 

So, I have a few very well
considered suggestions for protecting yourself, your family and your hard-won
wealth:

 

DE-BANK
YOURSELF.
 
That’s right; get your money out of the system. Cash out your 401(k) or
pension while you can, pay the 20% taxes and buy some precious metals while you
still can, and also invest in some long-term food storage. Better to take 80%
now than to lose all of it later. By the time you are aware of a “bank holiday”
or a stock market crash, it will be too late. For reference, look at Cyprus…
only the insiders knew and had their money out in time. Everyone else stood in
line each day to get a hundred or so euros. Entire retirement savings fortunes
disappeared.  Stop your paychecks from
direct deposit and cash them when you get paid, putting only enough in the bank
to pay your bills with. If there is a bank holiday where you won’t have access
for some weeks, you need to have your money at home where you can get it.

Like I mentioned above, the
banksters have a court ruling that justifies stealing your money. Lehman
Brothers, Bear Stearns, MF Global and PFG Best were all looted from within by
Goldman Sachs alumni, outright stealing segregated customer accounts while
these investment banks closed the savers out. Nobody was ever arrested for this
incredible theft. Account holders had to sue to get their money back.

 

CEASE
SUPPORTING THE REGIME.
  Tell the personnel director to stop
withholding taxes from your paychecks and take control of that yourself. There
is no lawful reason for them to take it from you and collect interest on it for
several months before paying the IRS. If the personnel department refuses (out
of ignorance), you go to the IRS, tell them that the company you work for is
pretty shaky and ask for an exception form so you can withhold the taxes for
yourself… and follow through by putting the same amount of money in a separate
savings account in a local credit union. File an extension every year for the
sheer heck of it.

 

ARM
YOURSELF.
 
Even if you don’t believe in
firearms, get a gun and some gun training. As the economy continues its
downhill slide, you will see the need for a weapon and ammo. Don’t wait too
long. You can’t keep stockpiled water and food if you can’t defend it. Travel
out of state to buy a gun if you have to. Keep buying ammo even if you can only
buy one box at a time per day… just keep stopping by the local gun shop for
your box of bullets every day. Actually I can find the self-defense rounds, but
target ammo is tough to find right now. The Department of Homeland Security is
buying up billions of rounds of hollow point ammo… presumably to arm themselves
against citizen insurrection or just to dry up the supply. Hollow points are not
allowed to be used by police on any level or by the military anywhere… hollow
points are strictly for individual citizens’ self-defense.

 

BUY
PRECIOUS METALS.
This is the one way to preserve the
value of your savings as the dollar dies. Gold and silver are the monetary
metals, and thanks to the banksters stomping the spot price of metals in the paper
futures markets, they are on sale! Buy
now!
The banksters can smash the spot price of silver in the paper markets down
to $5 an ounce, but you won’t be able to find any silver. This last takedown of
silver to the $22-23 range just made the dealers either remove inventory from
sale or jack up their premiums, so even at my nice local seller, generic silver
rounds were still $26.60 per ounce. Bear in mind, that it costs $22 to get each
ounce of silver out of the ground, and between $1200-1400 to get each ounce of
gold out of the ground. Without that market manipulation, given the
fundamentals, silver would already be at $400 an ounce now.  Remember, during the currency collapse of Weimar
Germany, you could buy an apartment building in downtown Berlin for 1/5 an
ounce of gold. With so many Cypriots locked out of their bank accounts for a
month, don’t you think someone with gold or silver could have bought anything
they wanted and gotten a good deal? Think about that. Make it a point to keep
buying these metals.

 

BUY
FOOD STORAGE.
 
There are a lot of freeze-dried dinners and freeze-dried veggies, eggs, meats
and dairy you can stock that will be good for many years. They are light-weight
and vacuum-packed in #10 cans.  Hit the
local Latter Day Saints’ (Mormon) home storage facility for deals on basic bulk
foods like beans and rice, powdered milk and the like… you can get nicely
prepared for a couple hundred dollars. Stock up on spices to make this stuff
taste good. You will need shelf-stable cooking oil such as grapeseed and
coconut oil. How about peanut butter and crackers?  Check out various water filtration systems in
case the power goes out in your area and you have to dip and carry from the
local bayou. Consider pulling together a bug-out bag with essentials to last
you a while if things get too hot.

 

GROW
YOUR OWN.
 
Get on line and buy some heirloom seeds – some for storage, some for
future barter and some to grow your own food. Even some lambs quarters in a pot
can make a good salad. Look around and discover how many native plants are
actually food. Most of the “weeds” in my yard are nutritious food.

 

This
isn’t about fear.
This is about being realistic and
empowering yourself. The people who are still suffering through the aftermath
of Hurricane Sandy can tell you that stored food will keep you from having to
dumpster-dive.

Not just America, but most of the
World is staring at an unprecedented economic collapse. The BRICS nations have
ceased using the dollar and are getting ready to roll out their own currency
system backed by all the gold they’ve been buying. The dollar as the reserve
currency of the world is already done, and those dollars that have been
circulating outside of the US are slowly making their way back home where they
are turning into inflation. We have the ability to recognize the signs and
symptoms and plan accordingly.

The government is doing the will of
the globalists that want 80% of us all DEAD, so let us foil their plans by
thriving.

Explaining the World Debt Bubble…

A comedy video from 2007 called the 2008 crash ahead of time in very specific terms:
http://www.realecontv.com/videos/in-humor-truth/how-the-markets-really-work-from-2007.html     The two British comedians do an excellent job of explaining Bear Stearns, Goldman Sachs and all the other banksters participating in the whole subprime bubble and subsequent collapse.

Now we’re staring at that exact same ”financial model” taken to the next level with the sovereign debt bubble.  The banksters are indeed offloading their gambling debts onto countries, who are bailing the banksters out so they can keep gambling, and the additional debt taken on by these countries is resulting in bailouts from the IMF and sovereign credit downgrades… never mind that the banksters’ debts are on paper only… the real estate still exists, but the derivative side-bets are not backed by any collateral whatsoever.  So the banksters take the bailout money and buy sovereign bonds, thereby sustaining each government for a few more months’ operation, while sinking each government in ever deeper debt. The goal is for the banksters to fully own, then liquidate the assets of each country and leave nothing to sustain the populace.   As prices for commodities (food, fuel, etc.) go up and requires more money that is worth less to purchase those items, this model will inevitably result in revolution… likely violent at that.

MARKETS TRADE ON POLITICAL PREDICTIONS:
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/2/d5pBlmXRIuI
http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel#p/u/1/oMlrfWl3Mpw
Now we know that there is yet a new stock market opening up in January 2012… NADEX is a new stock exchange based on trading political futures, just as the CME trades commodities futures.  A few years back they proposed a stock market trading on terrorism, but the backlash stopped that from happening… if you realize that the banksters are creating the terror events, then you know they’d be the only ones profiting from the killing of people.  Another Mafia type organization sought to trade box-office futures, which would likely include the lifespans of Hollywood stars (kill the star to manipulate the stock?)… and that was nixed… Motion Picture Association of America lobbied congress to stop that.  

So now they’re betting on presidential candidates with this NADEX, which somehow got approved by the bankster mob.  The majority of politicians are financed by the very banksters who are taking everything from us.  There is no protection for American politicians, so putting a price on each politician’s head is no big deal.  The banksters are pumping value into inside political trading vis-a-vis campaign contributions, securitized, financialized and combined into derivatives, and from there likely into more government bailouts… again.  So… the derivatives fraud is being dragged into reality.

We know that the elites/banksters are planning on getting the world into so-friggin’-much debt that it can never recover, and it is likely to come down during 2012.  When the world’s financial system crashes, they will replace all currencies that are now crashing with ONE fiat currency of their creation.  Notice that India, Mexico, Russia, China and all these other countries are buying tons of silver and gold to back their own currencies. If you are in one of the countries with a crashing currency, if you still have your assets in “paper”, you will lose most of it.

Native American Tobacco Ceremony

I have a wide number of applications for a special type of prayer called “Tobacco Ceremony.” The divine messenger, White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman, brought the “Tobacco Ceremony” to us some 500 years ago. I will typically use this ceremony when clearing haunting activity.

With this prayer ceremony, I found that I can anchor light anywhere, block-in or block-out any form of energy or entity, and “clear” an area of unwanted influences. For example, I felt the energies were “off” at one psychic fair I was at. I went outside and quietly walked around the building, doing the ceremony, giving thanks and asking that anyone, energy or entity be excluded from the building if it is not “working for the Light” or if it is not there for the betterment of all. Ten minutes afterwards, two of the “psychics” quickly packed up and left. I had never thought about them, either. Interesting, huh? I know a “channeler” that can’t do readings in an area I’ve done ceremony on. What does that say about what was being channeled?

You don’t need to smoke or use a special pipe. What I do is offer a pinch of the dry herbs in each direction. You may also choose to burn the herbs on a charcoal to offer the smoke. I carry a pouch filled with a generic mixture of tobacco, sage, cedar and sweetgrass, which is symbolic of the four directions. Other tribes use other herbs.

Let’s do it, shall we? Place yourself in a state of grace. Begin with an open prayer/invocation, and then start by facing EAST (or what you perceive as east), which is the start of the Medicine Wheel, holding a nice little handful of your herbs. Raise your hand offering the herbs, and begin by addressing the “Grandparents of the East”. The “Grandparents” referred to in this ceremony, includes ancestors, ascended masters, angels and the spiritual hierarchy of the planet. Give thanks to the Grandparents for all of their assistance, offer your handful of herbs and ask them for their assistance once again (insert request here), thank them in advance for their help and drop a pinch of the herbs in their direction. Do this exactly the same way facing SOUTH addressing the “Grandparents of the South”, then WEST, then NORTH. Then kneel to address the EARTH MOTHER beneath your feet, making sure to thank her for feeding you and giving you a place to live, and offer the herbs and your special request and thanks. Then stand again and talk to SKY FATHER (God, Creator, Wakan-Tanka, etc.) offering herbs, thanks, your request, and thanks in advance for this assistance, and dropping some dry herbs. Any breeze will carry the herbs to where they need to go. It is done. Give thanks. Whatever you asked for is on its way if your intent was correct and pure. This is the short form. White Buffalo Calf Pipe Woman’s version is considerably more involved.

If you are a smoker, you can do this ceremony very casually and even surreptitiously. Light up a fresh cigarette, face east, offer the smoke from your hand as you pray, then take a deep draught and mentally exhale the prayers as you blow the smoke carrying your prayers up to the Grandparents of each direction as described above. Works just fine. It’s the intent that matters.

I will remind you of the importance of Universal Law when doing “ceremony”. Prayer, especially a focused prayer like this, is a powerful form of thought/energy transmission. You will get back that energy multiplied in accordance with your intent in putting the energy out to begin with. Some people say it is multiplied three times, but in truth there is no ceiling on the multiplication aspect. So, for example, if you pray for advancement on your job, ask that it be done in harmony and for the best and highest good of all concerned… not just yourself. I know one lady that did ceremony to get a promotion, and got it, but because it was not done in a harmonious way, she was fired a month later. You can do ceremony to attract a new love to your life, by putting your “spec sheet” out in this prayer ceremony, but you cannot manipluate any person in particular as that will backlash on you. You get the idea.

Release and Move Forward…

The date is 8-31-2011.  Mercury just went direct, and Jupiter just went retrograde.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
My friend just landed here from Santa Fe, NM a couple of months back, with a 25 foot rental truck full of accumulated stuff that completely filled her one bedroom apartment and a rented storage shed.  I marveled at the mass of stuff she kept… it looked more than a little odd to me. The truth is, when she bailed out of Florida a few years back, she had to go where she had a landing pad… and that was Santa Fe, NM, which turned out to be a new brand of horrible circumstances… she didn’t have much time to get  rid of the excess stuff.  She had to pack it all so she could go through it later.                                                                                                                                                             
She went through all sorts of crap just trying to get the basics covered. She began looking for janitorial/maid service work. When she went for interviews she was told that she couldn’t work there without a current Texas drivers license, insurance and plates… she got that. Then she was told she was too tall for the uniforms… huh? She got out and began selling some of her collected stuff, such as some inherited musical instruments… and she got the run-around. She tried selling her inherited vinyl album collection, thinking it had one set of specs when it was completely different… so she wound up selling the boxes of albums to Half Price Books for about $20.  Nothing was connecting up no matter what she did.  To top it off, it turned out she has cataracts, which effectively prevented her learning her way around Houston’s highways, and thus made it that much more difficult for her.  She was at the absolute end of her resources… not even another credit card she could exploit to feed herself.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  
So her next course of action was to begin going through her stuff.  She found a pair of fine art prints with hanks of hair attached to them… that is voo-doo stuff. She immediately tossed those into the dumpster and the atmosphere lightened immediately. She had a lot of excess cosmetics and personal hygeine items… 5 boxes condensed down to one box as she tossed anything that she really didn’t want.  She found a lot of cookware that she inherited from her evil adoptive mother (I’m not kidding about that), so she put all that stuff out on the sidewalk beneath her apartment, along with anything else she did not have an immediate use for, or felt the energy was inappropriate. The energy around her lightened up even more as appreciative residents of the apartment complex carried off these items.                                                                                                                                              
She suddenly got calls from her good brother (she has two, one is patently evil and is now in a nursing home), who had lined up work for her, had managed a landing pad apartment and was willing to finance another truck rental if she would just head back to Florida. She wanted to go back to work and save so she could come back to Houston in a year or so and make a real go of it. She really likes Houston.
 
As I went into action to find someone to drive the big truck dragging her SUV behind it to Florida, she kept finding things to get rid of.  She pawned off several plants on me… which is fine, I’ll look after them.  She also gave me a shell collection to pass on to very spiritual people… fine.  She passed off her tiny wooden bistro set with two chairs, which I am holding so a friend of the driver can come pick it up… again, good.
 
The driver I was able to find for her, thanks to my Native American network, turned out to be exactly what my friend needed. A very intense young man with the protector energy and a kind of “dark heyoka” spin.  When we met, I gifted this young man with a deer hide I’ve had for years, and he greatly appreciated it, and I made sure he had a good breakfast before delivering him to meet my friend who needed the driver. When I introduced the two, they immediately began comparing notes and soon became fast friends.  They worked all day today shuffling my friend’s stuff into the truck, and will be heading off to Florida first thing in the morning.  God, I am so grateful! I give thanks!                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
Now the take-away from this is simple. The American Indians call the release-so-you-can-move-forward method the “giveaway”.  They would actually stage a simple ceremony and give away all of their most cherished possessions to friends and family and the community at large in order to move the energy.  I have another friend who walked away from an incredibly abusive marriage, leaving her stuff and a house that she owed outright to her abuser… she simply released it all in her intent, saying, “All of it will be replaced with something as good or even better” and so it was.  It is a type of feng shui.  My friend was doing this instinctively, and as she lightened her load, the roadblocks disappeared. I expect to soon hear back from her that her emotional and physical health issues will have fallen away as well.

Ruminations from Argentina…

I keep up with the blog from a young fellow that was in his teens when Argentina’s currency and economy collapsed around 2000:  http://ferfal.blogspot.com.  He makes his money by selling a very good book he wrote and selling various survival type items, including knives and guns.  His blog is filled with practical advice based on his real-world experience… for example, he tells us that the exurbs are not necessarily the ideal bug-out destination simply because it takes so much more to make it defensible, versus a reasonably secured family compound with friendly neighbors looking out for you. In essence, he effectively puts the armchair Rambo wannabes out there in cyberspace to shame.

In this very poignant video post, he ruminates on his own family’s experiences with collapsing regimes looting people’s wealth while the little guys on the lower rungs of society have to get creative just to get along.  http://ferfal.blogspot.com/search?updated-max=2011-12-27T19:07:00-08:00&max-results=5  Ferfal holds some items of jewelry passed to him and his wife. One simple gold chain bracelet started out as a gold necklace chain. The grandmother that passed it on had sold a link or two at a time during her teens to feed her family during the fascist regime that had control of Spain. Her family packed what they could and fled to Argentina to start over. Once that grandmother was reestablished, she paid a jeweler to put a clasp on what was left of her necklace chain so she could wear it as a bracelet. 

I’ve read many such stories where the presence in a family of a small amount of gold or silver has been the major factor in  survival during many a currency collapse around the world. After the Weimar Germany collapse, as little as 1/5 of an ounce of gold would purchase an apartment or office building. Much of the real estate in Germany was bought up by foreigners at that time.

In a number of posts he speaks about currency. Right now, the Argentinian government has “anti-terrorism” rules in place that forbid people to hold foreign currency. Most people in Argentina hold multiple currencies as well as silver and gold just to get along. Most won’t bother with banks except to cash paychecks because of transaction fees.  http://ferfal.blogspot.com/2011/11/advantages-of-having-networked-ahead-of.html  In this entry, Ferfal speaks about dealing with a local black-market currency seller, an “Arbolito” which has been forced to keep things on the Q.T. thanks to the fascist regime and their disproportionate fines. It costs 4.9 to 6 Argentinian pesos to buy each U.S. dollar. Lack of this foreign currency resource has majorly crippled what economy they have left. 

In other posts Ferfal muses that with the euro and the dollar biting the dust, it really will come down to precious metals both in those countries and in countries like Argentina where people depend on baskets of alternate currencies.

Fun with the Dehydrator

For years now, I’ve used my big 12-tray Excalubur Dehydrator to make everything from raw corn chips, flax seed crackers and, of course, taking those apples that were a little too long in the tooth to eat directly and turning them into incredibly sweet apple chips.  Frozen blueberries work fine, too. Fresh pineapple takes on a very sinewy, chewy texture, but tastes pretty good. By all means, experiment.

Dehydrated apples are quite delectable and satisfy the appetite for sweet and snacky. You can take a $4 bag of apples from the local wholesale club and turn it into a lot of apple chips. They’re great with peanut butter. You can, of course, take your favorite nut-butter and spread it on a Teflex sheet and dehydrate that for some chewy nut leather.

Looking at the prices for dehydrated and freeze-dried foods, I decided to experiment a little more. The last time I went to Costco, picked up a 5 lb. bag of organic frozen mixed vegetables for $6 (you can’t beat that price), so I took that bag and placed the entire contents into my dehydrator, taking up 6 trays. I let it stay in there for several days at 105 degrees so the veggies would be thoroughly dehydrated but still have all the enzymes. The peas, corn and carrots dehydrated really fast, but the green beans lagged behind. It did permeat the house with a really weird smell for more than a day. When at last the green beans were shriveled and crispy, I put them in a FoodSaver system bag, and suck-wrapped them. That huge bag of frozen veggies came down to about a quart sized bag.

Not bad!

Reiki for the Ghouls

Stuart Wilde recently tossed his NING blogsite in favor of going back to his old blogsite. The feeling coming from his NING articles, which people could actually make comments to, was that Stuie was riding kind of a slippery slope of really broad judgements about a lot of basic spiritual practices.

When he went after other “new age” authors like David Icke, I disagreed with him saying that Icke had evolved quite a lot from his old lizard line (even though we have been seeing a lot of thinly disguised lizards walking around in people clothing), but his message has gotten more into personal empowerment from the inside out… unified field mechanics and all that.  Actually, we desperately need those somewhat frightening authors that publish the spooky stuff, because they shock a lot of people into wakefulness and force them to make some decisions… the red pill or the blue pill. Once on “the path” people can do their own research, and oftentimes that leads people around full-circle.

When Stuie wrote on his NING site that Reiki takes people to the ghouls, I did jump in and clarify to remove the fear factor. Yes… there are people who are not particular about whom they have doing the Reiki teaching and attunements… I’ve run into a lot of cases in which the teacher withheld vital information about protection from unbeneficial energies and how to disengage from the client… just to set the students up for failure while taking their money for the teachings.  

I have known people who didn’t know how to disengage properly that wound up taking on the health problems of their clients, even to the point of being hospitalized.

I’ve run into people who were not particular what energies they really were channeling when they did Reiki energy work… if a person is ego-based they will attract funky beings who will use that opening to do some mischief. If a Reiki practitioner isn’t actively seeking to bring in the highest, most angelic energies possible, and assumes that all Reiki is the same, they are not likely to be consistently bringing in the best.

I’ve run into people who, being fully owned by the dark beings, have literally worked the local psychic fairs just tearing up the auras of unsuspecting rubes.

I know a couple who practiced Reiki together in an office practice. The lady had to kick her husband to the curb because he was literally leaving the clients in pain because he wasn’t doing the Reiki right… his focus wasn’t where it needed to be.

If your Reiki is all about egotism and your attitude is “I am the healer”, then it will take you to the ghouls.  If your approach is to help the other person on all levels as much as the soul will allow, and to provide the opportunity for that person to heal himself, then you are probably going to be just fine.

So Stuart Wilde does have a point about Reiki being a loaded gun. Truth is, your intent and focus really account for a lot.

Reiki can be a delightful way to tell the universe that you are indeed ready to put the hyperdrive in gear for advanced development. It can also be an excellent tool that can be used in so many ways. I routinely use Reiki as a basis for remote healing and energy clearing, exorcisms, amping up my medicine jewelry with angelic energy, and all sorts of other good stuff.

Royal Scams…

The date is May 1st, 2011.

Well… there wasn’t much on the boob tube this weekend because of Britain’s so-called royal wedding. If you look in the peerage you will find that this was an arranged marriage between the House of Windsor and the House of Rothschild. No kidding.  The top two elitist, racist, psychopathic globalist families have merged.  All I can say is Ewwww! Forget the pomp and ceremony and all the money that the tourism and merchandise raised to go into their coffers, and remember the tens of billions it is costing the overindebted UK to put on this show. For the past week probably over a thousand people were rounded up so they couldn’t protest… no probable cause or charges… just rounded up and incarcerated.

There isn’t anything nice about either of these two families. They’re all plain nuts and they are not English or British.  The House of Windsor was taken over in the 1400s by a group that had been exiled from Venice in the 1300s, and only two places would take them: Amsterdam and Wales. They went to Wales and schemed with the lowland Scots to take over the House of Windsor. Since then they’ve intermarried extensively with the German and Dutch royal families.  The modern “British royal family”, as we know it, was founded in 1840 when Queen Victoria married Albert of Saxe-Coburg, a Germany duchy, creating the House of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha. Such were the ill-feeling towards all things German during the First World War that in 1917 Victoria’s grandson King George V – an honorary Field Marshal in the German army – thought it prudent to renounce the German name and titles and adopt that of Windsor. Poor ol’ Princess Diana really was of royal blood, and was treated as a third class citizen after she married into this bunch. As you know, she was murdered after she escaped to get on with her own life, and the whole thing was covered up.

The second scam… Obama’s birth certificate.  More and more people, ranging from desktop publishing experts to background researchers, are jumping all over this obvious forgery. The mainstream media isn’t carrying a peep, but everyone else is buzzing.

The third scam I’d like to mention is the beatification of Pope John Paul II.  Basically, they’re trying to make him into  a saint. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ac/20110429/us_ac/8391705_beatification_of_pope_john_paul_ii_qanda_on_the_process_1
Huh? So they’ve found a nun that claims that he healed her… and they claim that he worked tirelessly for the church. So? I’m betting that his other miracles were probably card tricks. I’ll put this down to tourism and the attempt to keep the church relevant and in the news.

The fourth scam I’d like to mention is that the mainstream mass media is now reporting that Osama Bin Laden is dead.  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704569404576297941397558496.html?mod=googlenews_wsj    I’m totally serious. They claim he was found in a mansion in Pakistan. Okay… given that we’ve thought him dead for years.   The dude had kidney disease, which was likely aggravated by exposure to depleted uranium. I’m willing to bet that they’ve had him on ice the whole time. I reckon Obama is going to try to take credit for this as he campaigns for reelection. He’s on the boob-tube now. Personally, I can’t stand looking at that friggin’ lying lizard Obama, and his wife is so reptilian she plumb gives me the willies.

The next scam I’d like to mention… the globalist-led insurrections against various middle eastern countries continues unabated.  We’ve already got troops on the ground in Libya, Yemen is the next to fall, and Syria is being actively targeted. Citizens are being mowed down in the streets, whether or not they’re protesting something. We are seeing the next stage in the U.S. overreach of empire coming to pass.  We are seeing the beginning of World War III.  The government will cut off all spending domestically, but won’t stop spending a $trillion a year on the military and hundreds of billions every year on “foreign aid” which is just another name for propping up puppet dictators all over the world. According to Mary Summer Rain, the Native American visionary No-Eyes said that there would come a time when the U.S. would be embroiled in so many wars, that they would institute the draft and families would start hiding their teen children. It’s coming.

The next scam… Ben Bernanke of the Federal Reserve big banking crime syndicate held a press conference. He claims all sorts of stuff. What he did ultimately was spike the price of gold and silver substantially higher. Nobody should listen to these idiots. They are laying another snow-job on us while taking away all of our assets and exporting all of our industrial base. They may be discontinuing QE-2, but I’m betting they’ll start up QE-3. 

Nobody is buying the B.S. anymore, and certainly not the t-bills.  The Federal Reserve has been buying some 83% of all U.S. treasury bills while Japan is actively selling off t-bills and China is dumping 2/3 of their t-bills holdings (about $2 trillion worth). It won’t be long before that comes home to roost.  Expect the government to either to continue to print and devalue the currency, and ultimately to default on its debt.

I noticed that silver has been suppressed back to $44.38, down from almost $49.  This would be a good chance to get out and buy on the dip. A number of mine owners are bugging the SEC about doing something about all of the shorting and naked shorting of silver and gold by the banksters. Why the heck aren’t there any investigations or arrests?

Ascension, Mass Arrests… etc.

So what… you may ask… does all of this talk of silver, economics, banksters and stockpiling the necessities of life have to do with the “new age”?   We’re at a very important juncture in our world’s history. 

The populace is awakening to what has been done to them… and most are going to be angry.  They know about the FEMA camps designed to take them in and most likely kill them off. They know about troop movements, including training of foreign troops to take on the American populace (how foolish the foreigners would be to consider it). Americans know that they’ve lost over 40% of their wealth in the first 3 years of the Obama administration… and that’s according to the Federal Reserve on mainstream media. Americans are buying at least 5 million guns a month right now.

There is, however, a contingent that has been using their knowledge of the etheric and the law of attraction to work on this whole situation. Cobra on the 2012 portal blogspot is actively promoting global meditations to shift the cabal out of control and bringing in a “new age” of wealth and prosperity, including full disclosure of ET presences throughout history and the introduction of Earth to the galactic community.  Ascension will happen to those of us who have been working on ourselves, meditating to shift the currents of history and holding divine Light… it will be a radical change in frequency. 

If it plays out right, we will not only see removal of the cabal, but will see the pollution removed (Fukushima… BP oil spill… anyone?) and new technologies that have been suppressed for decades to be brought to the marketplace.  Humanity would see a world of prosperity, good jobs, clean food, and true development of human potential as we are freed from serfdom and introduced to our galactic brethren. According to these sources below, the bad aliens have already been removed, leaving the cabal clutching at any means to drag us into their “one world order” of abject slavery.  According to these sources, patriots the world over have been cutting the cabal off from the money printing presses and hacking to change out the codes to all the missile systems… seems the cabal is so desperate to maintain power that they are willing to destroy the Earth rather than get arrested.

According to Drake, there is a plan in the works, once the finishing touches to the paperwork are completed, for the positive military along with federal marshalls to arrest the cabal and put THEM into the FEMA camps to await their trials. For a while, there was a shift in focus as negotiations were being carried out to allow for the cabal to surrender, but they did not.  Following this past week’s Rio summit wherein the cabal was pushing all the government attendees to sign a pact to remove all national sovereignty to finally created their “one world government” (Hillary Clinton and Obama were there), Drake is pushing his sources to get a move-on and start arresting these treasonous rapscallions.  According to Drake, we should know something more concrete pretty soon… a couple of weeks, maybe.

The approach is to conduct the activity of arresting the cabal on a humane and lawful basis to show the space brothers that we are worthy of association with them… and they have made it clear that they cannot come forward until we take action for on our own behalf… we have to clear out the cabal.

Drake is actively promoting both meditation, and that everyone stock up on food and some 90% silver U.S. coins, and if you are so disposed, to please consider joining your local militia group.  The militias will be needed to supplement the positive military and police, to keep the cabal from taking down the infrastructure as they are removed from power.  Drake also encourages each of us to get to know our neighbors and sheriff departments… to build community.

A good source of information, ranging from the projected mass arrests of the banksters and their minions in our government, include:
http://americannationalmilitia.com/  is Drake’s website.
http://kauilapele.wordpress.com/  is a compendium of both news and channeled information sources, with summaries.
http://divinecosmos.com/start-here/davids-blog
http://2012portal.blogspot.com/ is Cobra’s website.
http://benjaminfulford.net/ 
http://tdarkcabal.blogspot.com/

As you take in this information, hold it in God’s highest divine light and use your discernment. I have been tuning in and dowsing, and have been getting high percentiles of truth on Drake’s transmissions. I hope he is correct and we are about to see an end to the satanic cabal… please send positive energy to this end.

Uptick in Alien Activity

Long-time Lightworkers generally have a lot of experience in dealing with UFOs and alien visitations.  A bunch of people I know are experiencing a marked increase in visitations and sightings. It ain’t all nice, either. I was recently sent this link to NASA UFO footage and recordings: http://www.youtube.com/v/X-RPWhigpQg&hl=en&fs=1&amp

I live in the Houston area, which is on a coastal plain that tends to hold smog in place, much like Mexico City or Los Angeles. When I notice stars in the sky, they tend to be either fixed (like the big dipper) or really big and obvious.  In the past couple of years, and even more this year, a number of people have noticed such phenomena as: clouds going behind the moon, “stars” going behind the moon, two moons at the same time, the moon moving in an obvious manner (as in seeming to follow a person), stars that should be at a fairly normal distance from the moon changing their position by a noticeably wide margin from one night to the next.

I’ve laid out in the yard at my parents’ house up in Centerville, TX, well away from the city smog, and watched the action-packed sky. Centerville is along the I-45 corridor between Houston and Dallas… I can also tell you that our commercial aircraft are not the only beings using this corridor. Some of the lights up there that were alternately moving or staying stationary were clearly NOT commercial aircraft.

I often wake up to the feeling of presences in my room, often hearing an odd high-pitched tone late at night, and occasionally the sounds of voices talking (but not in recognizable words), my dreams will shift to being more frightening during these times as well. I invoke my angels and request assistance when I become aware of things happening. I’ve been making it a point to ask Archangel Psion to send his associate angels to protect me during these periods. I tend to catch up on my sleep when I do my Transcendental Meditation program in the afternoon or evening.

Recently, a customer of mine was telling me how she was being “told” that she was being prepared to channel Jesus himself very soon, and that she didn’t need to study any more, and that this presence would tell her all that she needed to know. I am long familiar with the pitfalls of newbies who open themselves to channel in an effort to fast-track their development. I tuned in and found that she has some aliens trying to call the shots. Rather than bursting her bubble, I told her that what she told me sent up some red flags and that she needed to start testing these presences and their information in a number of ways.

My friend up in Tomball, TX, spent most of her life living along the I-45 corridor between NASA and points north, and has been experiencing alien phenomena all her life as well. A couple years back, a group of very high-looking aliens used her big yard as a vacation spot. This friend experienced an alien home invasion last night. After a day of packing excess items for storage so she could put her house on the market, she drifted off to sleep, waking to the sound of at least 7 people inside her house, tromping around on the newspapers she was using in packing. She was frozen in fear and elected to “play possum”. She experienced one of them using some sort of device to paralyze her legs. This normally unshakeable woman was so frightened that she couldn’t remember most of the basic methods that commonly work to ward these guys away. What got them to leave was her getting out of fear and “giving up” (to the effect of being willing to accept whatever they wish to dole out, whether it included her death or not), which effectively quit feeding them (they eat fear like pop-corn). After they left, she got up and looked around to find that they have fished around in her kitchen cabinets, turned on the TV and radio, and moved some stuff around. She checked on her husband, who said that he saw some beings over him that looked like my friend, only with a blank face. He knew it was my friend for real when she walked in carrying a handgun and calling him by name. They compared notes and she discovered that she had 3 hours of missing time. No, she didn’t get a look at them.

I have a buddy in Santa Fe, NM who has witnessed and experienced such a wide array of phenomena, it is hard to recount all of it. My friend has been an experiencer from her early childhood onwards, when she was actually taken up in spaceships to see the Earth from space. She has been kidnapped and forced to do a number of things… everything from making and tending half-alien babies, to performing the hula for aliens as little as 2 years ago. She has witnessed new varieties of aliens popping up out there in Santa Fe and environs… there is a truly nasty pale-skinned, white haired and blue eyed alien race that make the standard gray reptilians look tame. She found out that the bigger reptilians like to drink Drano to get drunk. There is another variety of aliens that dress up as biker gangs with weird motorcycles that literally do their best to run people off the roads. There is another variety of aliens she calls “robo-cops” that drive around in “off-looking” police cars that you can’t see into. She has been followed by big balloon-like crafts (think “Rover” from The Prisoner TV series) both while hiking in the mountains as while driving home from the market. Lately she has seen how a particular super-thick darkness descends, enveloping a room or house, blanking out all light in the surroundings… her defense is to jump up, turn on as many lamps as she can, and yell at the aliens to get the hell out.

In Consideration of Copper…

If you get the chance, take a look at what the bullion banks have done to the copper market while they’ve been manipulating the heck out of gold and silver…
http://www.kitcometals.com/charts/copper_historical_large.html

For the sheer heck of it, I decided to purchase some copper bullion rounds, and it looked like Steel City Copper was about the only on-line dealer that had inventory. http://www.steelcitycopper.com/store/page2.html I purchased a role  of 20 and also purchased a roll of 90% silver Mercury dimes, since those have been tough to come by. I also purchased the last 22 copper bullion rounds from The Copper Cave http://coppercave.com/copper/ They are now out of stock.

Copper has gotten to be something of a rarity these days. Like silver, it is an industrial metal, but copper is known for its conductivity. Copper has excellent alloying properties. Copper alloys well with nickel. Copper and zinc forms brass. Copper and tin forms bronze. Copper is also an excellent conductor of heat and electricity. Copper has biostatic, antimicrobial, and fungicide capabilities, too. Many algae are susceptible to copper, and it is used to control green slime in many ponds and lakes. It is used in farming, used to make ammunition for guns, electrical wiring in vehicles and buildings.  Pellets with copper salts really help control the snail population in my garden. 

The bullion banks have been buying huge positions in copper to shore up their shorts in gold and silver.  JPMorgan literally has naked short position equal to three times the world production of silver, and the COMEX is being raided by its bullion customers showing up and demanding physical metals, keeping them forever short.  It is only a short matter of time before the lid comes off silver prices… and that point comes when silver manages to overcome the manipulation to rise to $50 spot.  Spot price for silver has stayed above $30 for several weeks now, so it won’t be long at all.  Bear in mind that silver should be trading on a 16 to 1 ratio with gold, and it will likely regain that sometime soon, especially as physical supplies dry up due to industrial demand. Current production of silver has only been enough to supply industrial demand. 

You might as well begin adding copper to your metals portfolio. It isn’t expensive to do. By all means look through your change and fish out any pennies made before 1982.

Buying bullion is one way of preserving wealth as the cabal of foreign bankers known as the Federal Reserve continue printing more and more money to create inflation. Most of the experts I read, from the web bot project to say they fully expect the inflation level to cause strife here in the U.S. fairly shortly, and look for inflation to go large by this fall. By all means, stock up on food so that when things start getting really strange, you will have the option of staying home and being able to feed your family for months from your larder until the dust settles. When the big price inflation hits, what you’ve got stored is going to make all the difference in your quality and continuation of life. Yes, there will be plenty of food in the stores, but you won’t be able to afford it. It will take a while before wages level out in proportion to price inflation.

“Quantitative Easing”

http://www.macmillandictionary.com/buzzword/entries/quantitative-easing.html   In the world of double-speak economists and politicians, they’ve coined a new phrase in an effort to make inflation not sound quite so bad. “Quantitative easing” is their new term for continuing to print lots and lots of money to inject into the banking system. Since the new money still isn’t backed by anything, it just means that all the other money already floating around out there loses a proportional amount of its value. Now, these days, they may not be actually printing the money on a printing press, but rather just creating the money digitally, which works just as well to dilute the value of the actual greenbacks you have in your wallet.  The kind of inflation we’re likely going to be seeing when it kicks in, probably isn’t going to be double or triple digit annual inflation… it’ll likely be a lot worse than that.

Those of us who remember the 1970s may think of that as inflation, which it was, but it was really “STAGFLATION”, which is inflation being held in check by deflation… stagnant.  We’re getting out of a stagflation time period, and Obama’s spending spree is turning it into full-tilt inflation. No kidding.

Deflation?  The media is also flogging the term “DEFLATION”, which is what Japan has been wrestling with for some years now. In short, deflation is a contraction in the money supply. Friends… deflation would be a “best case” scenario. We ain’t gonna see it. We’ve been set up for a replay of Argentina’s or the post-WWI German Weimar Republic’s hyper-inflationary economic crisis. http://www.americanthinker.com/2010/08/an_argentinalike_economic_cris.html   and http://www.shadowstats.com/article/hyperinflation-2010     In short, our manufacturing base has been outsourced, companies are relocating their offices to other countries (like Halliburton) to avoid paying taxes, our main growth industry has been “debt” and “credit” for some years now, and the middle class is collapsing while the money has been channeled to the uppermost 2% of the economic ladder.  The really big difference between the U.S. and Japan is that Japan’s people save their money… and there is no incentive for keeping your money in the bank here because the interest rates are so abyssmal.   Obama’s policy of taxing the shrinking middle class to pay for everything is going to finish the job that his masters among the Bilderbergs (or whatever you want to call those louts) started under Nixon.  They are in the process of building the debt bomb even bigger, then monetizing it by printing lots and lots of money so it won’t look so bad.  We’re staring at LOTS of inflation, folks.  Some possible scenarios as to what we might expect have been compiled in an article by Jeff Fisher here: http://www.lewrockwell.com/orig11/fisher-j1.1.1.html   and it is all pretty scary if you haven’t been preparing yourself. If you have been taking some steps, some of the possibilities spelled out in Fisher’s column are actually fairly juicy.  

What about bank runs?  They’re already doing their best to head you off. If you’re gonna get your money into metals, you need to do it NOW… cash out your IRAs and get out of the stock market while the money is still worth something, and certainly before the end of this year… 2011 will bring about a whole new ball game.  http://www.infowars.com/capital-controls-the-final-phase-in-the-great-looting-of-america/   They’re about to institute all sorts of taxes and fees and other methods give control of your money to the very looters that have orchestrated the destruction of our economy, while keeping you from gaining access to your own money; essentially forcing private sector savings into public sector debt. If you plan on taking your retirement savings and fleeing the country, you gotta do it before 2013.   They will likely seize all retirement savings.  You might as well pay the lower taxes now and beat them to it while the prices of metals are still fairly low due to the manipulation of those markets. You can still buy generic silver round and square for about $20 an ounce.

Will this forthcoming election be enough to head this off?  Well… there’s a relative few candidates that really understand the Constitution and the economy.  There aren’t enough of them.  If we’re lucky, we’ll get a bunch of fiscal conservatives in there that will overturn ObamaCare and the carbon taxes and all that other horrible stuff.  I’m betting we’ll see a major tide of republicans taking seats in congress, but if they’re like Bush’s neocon congress, it will be just more of the same old thing.  When the democrats lose their seats in this election, they won’t have anything to lose, so they’ll shove through even more bad legislation and debt-production in the couple of months before the new officeholders get sworn in. Don’t wait for the government to do anything positive… ever.  Career politicians are in it for their own survival and will do anything expeditious to stay in office… and that won’t include anything that involves restraint or paring back an overgrown government.  They’ll have to be ridden out on a rail.

You can see the train coming… you can see the tracks and hear the engine and the whistle, and it’s heading this way.  All the indicators are there. This same bunch of Wall Street brigands has done this same scenario over and over all over the world.  It’s taken them a while, but they’ve effectively succeeded in crashing the U.S. economy.  You might as well get your ducks in a row.  If it turns out you don’t need the metals and stored food, you haven’t wasted anything… it’s all still useable. If you need the metals and stored food, you can’t wait until you’re “at need” to put your resources together.  Take care of yourself, hon!

Chia and Hemp Seed Recipes

I’ve been trying to invent new and better ways to remake common recipes to be health-promoting. Hemp seeds and chia seeds are excellent sources for bio-available protein, calcium and omega 3 fatty acids, as well as a number of amino acids.

Hemp seeds are available at all the health food stores, usually in the refrigerated section. You can work these little darlings into salads and casseroles. I use them in place of the bulgur wheat in Tabouli salad. Hemp seeds by themselves do have a taste… like some kind of licorice.

In the last couple of years, my local Kroger store has been carrying hemp seed milk, in both regular and vanilla flavors. I eat my breakfast cereal with the vanilla, and I make Jello pudding mix with the unflavored version for a super rich dessert with health benefits. I find that I have sinus congestion and even occasional digestive upset when using the organic cow’s milk, but the hemp seed milk doesn’t give me any difficulty at all.

 Chia (Salvia Hispanica, also called Salba) seeds are a new treat. They have virtually no taste. Like flax seeds, when you soak them in a little water, they make a pocket of gel around themselves, and that gel is loaded with nutrition. These little things have many times the calcium of milk and many times the omega 3 fatty acids of fish oil, and they are a lot more digestible. Chia seeds contain 21 percent protein which is greater than other nutritional grains such as wheat (14%), corn (14%), rice (8.5%), oats (15.3%), barley (9.2%) and amaranth (14.8%). Unlike most other grains chia seeds are not limited in the amino acids necessary in the human diet. Other grains are limiting in terms of two or more amino acids and must be mixed in order to satisfy human needs. Chia seeds are a rich source of B vitamins, calcium, phosphorous, potassium, iron, magnesium, zinc and copper. One serving of chia seeds (2 tablespoons) gives a large amount of the recommended daily allowance of fiber, molybdenum, chromium, selenium and biotin. Chia is gluten free.

I keep a couple of scoops of soaked chia seeds in a small container in the fridge and work them into all sorts of things. When I get out some organic yogurt, I fill the inch or so to the top edge of the container with the soaked chia seeds and mix them in. I stretch salad dressings with the soaked chia seeds, which not only boosts the nutrition but saves money.

I also put a couple of tablespoons of the soaked chia seeds in my special “ice cream” that I make at home… I put a banana, about a tablespoon of soaked chia seeds, and some assorted frozen berries into the food processor and buzz that up into a marvelous, smooth, cold concoction, and I sprinkle some raw cacao nibs across the top. If you let it sit a little while before serving in, the gel in the seeds gives it a firmer, more pudding-like texture. You can’t beat it.

I found the best prices on chia products at Hidalgo Foods here in Texas.  http://www.hidalgofoods.com including chia meal you can work into your baked goods and oils you can work into your salad dressings. You can get the seeds for as little as $5.36 a pound. They also have great prices on quinoa, maca and goji berries.

Another thing I’ve been doing is eat more gelatin. I take the Swanson Vitamins http://www.swansonvitamins.com gelatin & silicon supplement, which really helps. My nails, hair and skin are already improving. My hair is growing in thicker and with less gray in it. The silicon is supposed to improve the elasticity of blood vessels.  Now… I love the Jello Gelatin desserts, but I won’t touch the stuff with Nutrasweet in it (that stuff is a neurotoxin), and I don’t want to trash my immune system with too much sugar. When you go to the store, look for unflavored Knox gelatin. What I did was dissolve a packet of Knox gelatin, with a tablespoon of Spoonable Stevita Stevia, in ¾ cup of boiling water, then I added 1-1/4 cups of my favorite fruit juice. It comes out a little cloudier than the Jello, but tastes fine.

Christmas Talk with Niece…

I have a niece who has had me fairly concerned for a long  time. She’s young and pretty… graduated college a few years ago and has been barely scratching a living in Los Angeles, California. She’s spent the last several years trying to break into show-biz: got onto one WE network game show, and has been seen in several music videos… nothing really paying to speak of.   Fortunately enough, the few means of earning income she’s been involved in tend to pay her in cash. She’s got a local gallery showcasing her paintings… modern wavy-gravy stuff, she makes jewelry and sells it through her Etsy site, and she also works in the “marijuana industry”. 

After dinner I approached her on the topic of California, asking her to please consider bailing out of there. I enumerated the reasons why on both sides… why she should leave there and why she’ll do better back here in Houston.  At least in Houston, she can land at her parents’ place while finding any kind of job that will pay… there are plenty of warehouse jobs around… plenty of assorted jobs in the industrial sector. Staying with her parents will give her some space and protection. Her daddy is really into guns. 

We talked about self protection and the various standards for getting a Concealed Handgun License… and I’m pretty confident that I managed to do away with some misconceptions on that topic. Truth to tell, California has some of the most lax standards for obtaining a CHL, and leaves it imcumbent on the licensee to seek out training.  Texas requires you to take the classroom training (10 hours) and practical exam on the range (often at least $150) and it’s a $140 nonrefundable application fee to the state once you’re done with that.  As far as reciprocity is concerned, Texas will recognize California’s CHL but California will not recognize Texas’ CHL in spite of the higher standards.  I also made the comment that Homeland Security was not formed to fight towel-headed nutjobs in caves, but is more aimed at gun owners, ex-miliary and constitutionalists… those are the three groups that will provide resistance to Nazi-style takeovers.  In other words, most of my family are targets.

I explained that more than 1/3 of everyone in California is unemployed, and even with the VAT taxes and increased income taxes, the state won’t be able to meet its committments.  There will be lay-offs of public employees.  There will be sell-offs of public assets, including buildings, hospitals and parks, and a lot of essential services will be privatized… like ambulances, emergency rooms, trash collection and what-not. One can expect a lot of established highways to suddenly become tollways.  The police will increasingly do only the type of law enforcement that produces income (traffic enforcement) and will cease doing any other type of investigation or enforcement.  When the WIC, Welfare and unemployment checks either don’t go out or bounce, people will only be quiet for a little while, then when the groceries run out, they will take to the streets.  The larger the “entitlement” segment of the population, the worse the civil unrest has the possibility of becoming.  When the unrest gets really bad, most police will stay home to protect their own families. I reminded her of the presence of the fusion centers and FEMA camps ready to receive the people that law enforcement will be rounding up. I reminded her that the people going into the FEMA camps will NOT be coming out. She had seen the information about all that, which I have been sending her via e-mail.

California already has a lot of “Hooverville” tent cities and a lot of people squatting in homes they don’t have the ability to make payments on.  A large number of people squatting in their own houses are doing so without benefit of electricity or water service.  If the tent cities are formed under the auspices of some charitable organization, chances are they are civilized, but in other areas, the tent cities can become epicenters for crime and are treated as nuisances by towns. The situation is certainly shameful.

Unfortunately, I think she’s still so young that she considers herself somewhat immortal, and apparently hasn’t put together the concepts between the melt-down of government with civil unrest and martial law.  I did emphasize the need to store food.  Basically, once the civil unrest starts up, she will need the stored food to shelter in place until the bad stuff blows over, and most likely will need it until some kind of price and wage stability can be achieved. It may take a while for most employers to adjust wages to inflation. She commented that since she moves around a lot, that it is difficult to store foods… I simply recommended keeping extra food in a few plastic storage totes, ready to go wherever she does.

She did ask about the NAFTA superhighways… I told her that in Texas, the Trans-Texas Corridor was essentially defeated, at least for now, because it would destroy untold hundreds if not thousands of family farms and ranches in the name of imminent domain. The state will likely just install tollway plazas on existing freeways.   I also remarked that since we don’t have effective border enforcement, that the so-called war on drugs is spreading all over. Arizona is fighting for their soverignity, but New Mexico has completely succumbed to the drug cartels, and law enforcement there is absolutely corrupt.  This became another reason to get herself moved back home to Texas while the getting is good.

http://ferfal.blogspot.com/2010/12/life-in-argentina-9-years-after-2001.html  For your reference… some basic talking points from, FerFal, the guy who writes the Surviving in Argentina blogsite.  This entry goes into the topics I already covered above, from the squatters to the riots, police corruption, power blackouts & brownouts, and sudden bank holidays with further devaluation of currency on the other side.

How Amazon.com killed the New Age Shops

At May 2009’s regional dowsing conference in Houston, George Goodnow gave a lecture that I found most interesting… he connected the dots on why the new age stores have been dropping off the map. George’s company, Xeonix, sells pendulums of all sorts to the wholesale sources like AzureGreen, as well as direct sales to the new age stores. George states that as many as 40% of the new age shops have been closing up each year, with perhaps 10% in new stores being opened to take their place.  There are several different explanations for this trend.

In the past 10 years I have seen two of the oldest new age bookstores in the US close their doors, one in San Diego and one in Houston. I don’t know about the one in California, which was the oldest one, but Aquarian Age Bookshelf here in Houston died when its elderly lady owners died one by one. Volunteers helped keep the store running while the last of its owners did the downhill slide, and with no legal secession, the owner’s children had to liquidate and close it down. It really was a shame to see it go, but it was at least a couple of years ahead of the trend we are now seeing.

The advent of the worldwide web is what really has been killing the new age “Harry Potter” type shops. Most of the new age shops were the primary distribution point of metaphysical and holistic books, and the owners were generally very knowledgeable people who could talk reasonably with a person who was in flux (as in awakening to the spiritual path and wanting to make changes). This little bookshop owner would listen carefully, offer some well-considered advice, and then lead the customer to a selection of books and be able to recommend a selection or two, so the customer could peruse and make a selection, and perhaps add a few other things while meandering towards the register. The owners typically provided a service and information out of passion.

When the web and on-line discount book outlets gained acceptance, the new age shops really lost their primary line of sales. The new age shops went to selling primarily consumables… everything from nutritional supplements, candles, pendulums, bric-a-brac, crystals, ritual stuff and the like. And the owners typically had to go to work at a “day job” to support themselves while leaving some kid behind to manage the shop. The advice spewing from the kid behind the register wasn’t on the level, and the consumables didn’t work, so the service wasn’t there any more. In summary, the bric-a-brac can’t deal with causation and can’t help people who really need information. You can’t expect a kid to take the place of a seasoned and passionate professional.

I had noticed a long time ago that no new age shop could last very long unless they had classroom space and the right kind of teachers, and could book a selection of guest lecturers… basically a draw for the shop. The success of the classroom depends heavily on maintaining a good website, advertising presence, and mailing out a newsletter at least every other month.

Some successful shops I’ve seen had small offices they could sub-let to various professionals such as reiki practitioners, reflexologists, massage therapists, psychics, astrologers, hypnotherapists and the like, which would ideally bring in their own customers who would also patronize the shop.  I’ve seen various arrangements on these two fronts. The only way a shop owner can keep related professionals as a feature in their shop is to actually charge that related professional a pro-rata share of the square footage and utilities… the arrangement where the owner simply took a percentage of the professional’s income didn’t work at all. If the “related professional” isn’t in business to grow their own business, the arrangement will not work.

I’ve seen some of these shops coming and going over the years simply because the owners started out too far in debt to sustain the shop long enough for it to take off, and a number of them tried to shore up their inventory by carrying a lot of consigned goods (which has its own liabilities). I’ve seen several go out of business because the owners didn’t have the requisite knowledge base or integrity to make it work. When it comes to opening a retail shop of any sort, it takes serious capital to go large enough to sustain. You really can’t shoestring it and hope to build up. You need substantial inventory and do consistent advertising and events to draw people in.

NOW…

People are going to the bigger retail chains for the new age books, which are now being exposed to a more mainstream audience. Of course, you will find lots of new age authors interspersed among the rest of the store’s inventory… which may or may not help. I’ve seen the Mary Summer Rain books stuck in the “American Indian” section, and the Abraham Hicks and Stuart Wilde books stuck in the “self help” section.  If the customers cannot locate what they are looking for, it won’t be purchased and the book publishers will have to buy back that inventory after a while. That will eventually tend to narrow the range of what will be published.

My local Barnes & Noble, as described above, has a pretty small new age section, limited to some paranormal crap, some wiccan stuff,  a bunch of astrology stuff, and the usual hack Sylvia Browne and other assorted “psychic” fluff authors. If you want a particular author, you have to go fish with the computer wizard.

There is still a crying need for passionate experts, but without a platform, such as a shop to work out of, they have to find other outlets. My guess is that you will see more new age shops among the permanent booths at the weekend flea markets (like Houston’s Traders’ Village and Trading Fair II), and most will either stay on that level or expand to an on-line presence. Some may find a small house to expand into in a neighborhood that has gone commercial.  The whole dynamic of a shop changes completely when commercial retail space is involved because the lease contracts are an inch thick and expensive to get out of.

Most of the “newly awakened”, however, may not think to look in these flea market stalls. That’s where I, and people like me, come in. People contact me like I contacted various new age bookstore owners back when I first awakened. I will talk to them, comfort them, coach them, dowse for them, and even e-mail them some information to peruse. I can refer them to other sources and books. If they are local, I can also do geopathic or ghost clearings. Since I don’t have to worry about paying rent on some retail space, I don’t have to hard-sell anything, either.

Silver, Web Bots and Other Stuff…

Okay… a couple of weeks back I saw that the European banks have ceased to sell gold and silver bullion. Now China has made it official… they are no longer selling any of their precious metals… gold, silver or anything else of a rarified nature that is used in an industrial context… they are hanging onto it all. In fact, China rolled out a program to encourage their citizens to buy gold and silver bullion several months ago.  Hint, hint.  It doesn’t take a genius to figure that something is up.

According to my silver dealers, it’s already tough to find the 90% silver U.S. coins right now, and the normal silver round is generally tough to stock even from U.S. sources.  If your local dealer has some, this would be the ideal time to get into it while silver is dipping down to $23.30.  I strongly suggest reconfiguring your assets right now… as in yanking your money out of your 401K or IRAs and buying things that are going to actually be useful to you.  You might as well do it now and only pay 10% tax on it, instead of waiting until next year and pay 15% instead… and that’s assuming there will be anything left of your nestegg.  We know that Obummer is eyeing up the idea of nationalizing 401Ks.  

Most of you are probably aware that the European Union is experiencing a lot of problems… the derivatives debt hit them hard, too, cratering pension funds and forcing governments all over to do their own bailouts of their big banksters, and the governments are forcing the populace to pay for it all with “austerity measures”.  People all over Europe are rioting, with Greece and Ireland leading the charge. In France, they are rioting and creating disruptions of shipping and commerce over changes in their retirement age.  The French know how to throw a good revolution… their government is justifiably afraid of the populace because they know the people can and will drag out the guillotine. We need to take a few pages from their playbook.

So… I’m recommending gold as a means of preserving long-term assets (there’s your retirement fund), silver for medium term once some type of bartering system becomes established, and CASH on hand for short term during a bank holiday, and it looks like that holiday is coming a lot quicker than we might have otherwise thought… mid November of this year… that’s just a couple of weeks away. 

On top of that, I will recommend storing water and food… enough for several months for the entire family for several months.  You’ve got a couple of weeks to move on this. Shop the sales and load up on everything you could possibly need to be able to feed your family.  Canned and dry foods, dehydrated and freeze-dried. I’m not kidding.  Believe me, I don’t do panic… there is nothing I’d like better than to have to donate my stored foods to the local Food Bank… I just don’t think it’s gonna happen like that.  I really feel like this is necessary. Food, ammo and what-not all have the potential to be bartering assets, too.

I am on the Michael Mandeville Earth Change Bulletins e-mail list; he recently featured this quote among his latest news and interpretations of data. It is a quote from Clif High and George Ure’s  ”Half Past Human” web bot project newsletter: 

“In July of 2001, Clif found a large “emotional tipping point” coming in a matter of months. It had keyword associations of “military” and “accident”, among others. It had an intense emotional impact lasting about four hours, and lingering emotional release lasting several days. He wasn’t sure what it was, until Sept. 11, 2001. The event lasted several hours, and the lingering effect of grounded airlines lasted for several days. It changed life as we know it.
“In trying to financially support the bandwidth for the web bots, Clif offered the technology to the government. They were not interested then. He found a foreign investor who paid him to keep it running, and this foreign investor made large sums of money by using the information the project supplied. That has since ended.
“In one scan of the net, the web bots made it into a Chinese server that was doing the same kind of work, so Clif knows that the Chinese are actively doing this kind of project also. There are also indications that the US government has taken the idea and quietly started using it, also.
“In predictive linguistics, it seems that the further in advance they sense something coming, the bigger the event, or emotional impact is. For a year or two now, Clif has been looking at the largest “emotional tipping point” he has ever analyzed. This one is predicted for Nov. 8-12 approximately. It has an intense emotional impact over four full days, and a cascading emotional release period well into March 2011. This event is predicted to have 10 to 100 times the impact of 9/11 in changing our lives forever after. Clif says it will start in the US and spread globally.
“What could it be? Much speculation and an array of various clues and aspects from the “time monks”, but there is much, much happening in the world tensions, as you may have noticed in recent months. Nuclear war? Global financial collapse? False flag attack on the US? All the above?”
 
Sounds like a booger-bear, doesn’t it?   Add to that the war drums beating… the U.S. has been sending drones to attach Pakistan on a regular basis and the Israeli Zionists are itching to start WWIII by bombing Iran. Iran just wants to be left alone, and Russia has armed Iran. You tell me how that will play out.
On top of that, a psychic sensitive and channeler I know who lives in Santa Fe, NM suddenly got the intuitive flash to get the heck out of there. New Mexico has been in melt-down for a while now, and the cartels run the state. My friend is selling everything in an effort to get herself moved. She may not be able to get moved before the “event” happens, but she’s working on it.  I told her to tune in on her “sources” and she called back the next day saying that this winter was going to be really, really, really tough.

I Outperformed the Dow…

… and the S&P… and Berkshire Hathaway… by doing just one thing.
Right now, we’re in a very uniquely historic time frame.  We are looking at three of the world’s top currencies dying simultaneously.  The Euro, the British pound, and the US dollar are all headed to the currency graveyard because of over-printing (inflation) causing loss of value.  According to Lindsey Williams’ elite sources, the dollar will be dead by this time next year.  The eurozone is swiftly falling apart over sovereign debt crises… Greece is down and already being asset-stripped by the banksters, and Italy with its huge gold reserves is next in line.  Right now, the BRIC countries: Brazil, Russia, India and China are all erecting barriers to our “hot currency” by taxing the heck out of dollar-deniminated assets and charging high fees for converting dollars to the local currencies.
So… I’ve been buying silver since it was $9 an ounce.  I had been reading the stock investment newsletters that steadily became gold-bug reports as the upcoming real estate mortgage bubble became evident.  I remember shaking my head as I spent a scratched-together $500 on silver at $12 an ounce.  As I did further research on all the fundamentals, I became ever more confident of my investment strategy. For example, silver has always been money along with gold, though silver is used for a lot of industrial applications in industry, while most of the gold ever mined is still sitting in vaults all over the world.  Silver is actually consumed… in the power and electronics industries, in electoplating, in jewelry, in water purification… you name it.  Silver is working its ass off; gold is sitting in a vault. 
The ratio of silver to gold coming out of the mines is about 10 to 1, while the current price spread is 43 to 1.  This is mostly because of the bullion banks, at the direction of the central banks and investment banks, are selling hundreds of times the number of physical silver in their vaults in paper… essentially fractional reserve banking.  JPMorgan and HSBC have been naked short selling silver for years… they have nothing in the vaults, so it is essentially counterfeiting. At some point, people holding all this paper silver will be left holding worthless paper as these banksters default. Right now you can buy the futures contracts for less than you can buy the physical silver.
There is actually a shortage of silver and we can expect the price of the physical silver to go up tremendously, particularly as the market adjusts itself in keeping with the laws of supply and demand.
So… let me put it together for you.  I took what was left of my 401K out of the market, paid the 20% in penalties and taxes and bought silver and gold.  At that time, a year ago, silver was $19-$20-$21 an ounce. Now it is sitting at $43 and projected to hit $50 this fall, $75 by the end of this year and perhaps $100 by February 2012 as the dollar dies.  I’ve long since compensated for losing 1/5 of my money to taxes and have already doubled the value of my investment money.  So, yeah, I’ve just beaten Warren Buffett, the Dow and everything else in just over a year.
http://bobchapman.blogspot.com/2011/09/bob-chapman-alex-jones-02-sept-2011.html
Various sources say that silver, because of the shortage of the physical metal, could actually reach parity (1 to 1 ratio) with gold because of demand from both the industrial and investment sectors. 
http://silver-shortage.blogspot.com/2011/09/silver-is-best-opportunity-of-your-life.html
  

So people may listen to Fox News and MSNBC and wonder if the metals are in a bubble… I say forget about the corporate fascist controlled broadcast media… their job is DISinformation. They’re just lying… about everything… I mean everything

Forget about buying stocks because all of that bailout money to the banks sat at the top of the banking chain and has kept the stock market afloat in spite of the tremendous load of derivatives in so many of the mutual funds and pensions.  The market has only been kept this high because of infusions of money at the top from the Federal Reserve.
Certainly forget about buying bonds because all those municipalities, counties and states, and certainly the federal government, are insolvent and losing more money as the tax base (the middle class) gets whittled away.  Foreign countries quit buying US treasuries and are selling those off right now… and only the Federal Reserve is buying treasuries right now… some 85% of them.  Get out of paper because the whole shootin-match is going down pretty soon, and the government will confiscate pensions, IRAs and 401Ks as they go down, and this has been proven every time throughout history.  The US is in full military overreach mode, going fascist corporatocracy and controlling everything into the ground, including WE the People.
 
The precious metals cannot be in a bubble because less than 1/2 of 1% of the people buy and hold precious metals.  Back before the dot-com bubble burst, everyone and their dog had dot-com stock recommendations. When your grocery cashier or car mechanic starts making suggestions about investments, you know it is time to get out.   The people who bought real estate at the top of the bubble are all singing the blues… I bought my house while Houston was enduring a market downturn in the 1980s because of the low price of oil.  If you know anyone who is shopping for real estate now, tell them to WAIT because there are some 3 million homes on the foreclosure roles now and that number is expected to hit 8 million by the time the market hits bottom. Wait until then and then load up… and do that at county tax lien auctions!  The people who have their money out of paper now are going to be the landlords of tomorrow… give them maybe 5 years.
Over in Greece, people are yanking the gold out of their teeth to buy food, but we’re still a little ways from that here in America.  No… wait until the beginning of 2012 to see that.

What would happen if the dollar crashes?

That’s one question that I get from time to time as my friends and I bandy things about. To say the least, the pre-crash period will be increasingly harsh for we little people, and near term prospects post-crash will be horrific to say the least. Depending on what WE THE PEOPLE do in the meantime will make all the difference in the world about how the long term prospects play out.
Right now, we’re witnessing the replay of the gigantic stock market crash in Europe of 1929, which will be followed almost immediately by a crash in the U.S. stock market. http://www.marketwatch.com/story/eu-bank-failures-will-crash-wall-street-again-2011-10-18?pagenumber=1  Yes, the Great Depression started in Europe back then as it is about to now, but even more important is the level of debt here in the U.S. and how much further we’ve allowed our system to get sucked under to the point where the U.S. cannot print money any more to pay for anything, even as a record number of people are dependent on the government.  Right now we are at the end of a deflationary period, and speeding into a rapid inflationary period. 
The U.S.’s greatest creditors are no longer buying treasuries (our debt) and the Federal Reserve has been buying some 85% of all treasuries for the last several years. This is the very epitome of a Ponzi scheme… printing money out of thin air to be used AT INTEREST by the government, then buying government debt with that thin-air money which would also pay interest. On top of that, the Federal Reserve has been printing trillions of dollars and lending out to foreign banks. Just last week the Fed announced they would guarantee the derivatives debt (gambling losses backed by no assest whatsoever) of Bank of America… some $75 trillion.  The world’s total GDP is only like $60 trillion. You do that math and then multiply Bank of America’s bailout (transfering their private debt to the public sector) times the other 5 or 6 huge megabanks, and we really do have the recipe for a global melt-down. 
The status of the Dollar as the reserve currency of the world has bought us a lot of time, but that time is coming to an end.  A lot of governments are already making arrangements to cease accepting dollars in any form, and most governments are dumping U.S. treasury holdings. 
SO WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN?
Okay… the dollar won’t be accepted any more outside the U.S., and the government won’t be able to raise money by selling treasuries, so they’ll try to raise money by other means… jacking up taxes, instituting currency controls, stopping purchasing of precious metals (TSA is already confiscating cash, gold and silver bullion at checkpoints), already raiding Federal Pension funds and likely to nationalize private pensions, 401Ks and IRAs. They’ll grab everything on the way down.
On the flip side, they’ll enact “price controls” that won’t take inflation into account, which will also result in shortages of just about everything… particularly food. 
The French Revolution was all about this exact type of systemic meltdown… rampant printing of unbacked currency, food shortages after price controls and rationing to the point where the people started dragging the banker class to the guillotines!   If you think the protests at “Occupy Wall Street” and “Occupy the Fed” are something, you ain’t seen nothin’ yet. Wait until people can’t afford to feed themselves.
As the money dries up so will essential services. There are already close to 100 municipalities around the country that are declaring bankrupcy, and several states are getting ready to. They will start by grabbing pensions and defaulting on medical insurance. It’s already happening.
There have been several videos about the day the dollar actually dies… one is called “Meltup” on the National Inflation Association’s website http://inflation.us/videos.html    You should get plenty of ideas of how to prepare for the upcoming meltdown.  Short term, you can easily expect runs on the banks and bank holidays, martial law, curfews and checkpoints, greater restriction of freedom and escalating violent crime. You can also expect a lot of people to starve.
Now… how we approach this now is where it gets interesting.  If we allow the globalist oligarchs to have their way with us, whoever survives the meltdown will all be picking cotton on the Rothschilds’ plantation… and there won’t be very many survivors.  David Icke spells that agenda out very succinctly:   http://www.davidicke.com/headlines/55045-david-icke-essential-knowledge-for-a-wall-street-protestor-and-everyone-else  They fully plan on replacing all national currencies with one world electronic currency (no cash) and one world government by them alone.  This is where we gotta be careful.
If, however, we manage to do this right, beginning with throwing out all these bums… beginning with making arrests of all these bankers and the politicians in their back pockets (check their campaign contributors), followed by trials, confiscation of their property and public executions.
Then write-off all debts, since they’re mostly derivative or fraudulently induced anyway, and start fresh with some basic laws on the books and the wherewithall to enforce them. We would actually do very well to start utilitarian state banks that don’t have to pay dividends to investors… there are several states in which those are doing very well.
Pull all troops and equipment back from wherever they are stationed… period.
Enforce our borders and kick out all illegal aliens… period. We need the jobs.
All foreign aid stops… period.
Return government power to the most localized level possible… which is always more beneficial and logical. Government should be from the bottom up, not from the top down as it is now.
Even if we have to completely start from scratch with a new monetary system, even if it means coming down to every state  franking their own currency without paying interest to some bank, then we stand to come out of this mess in pretty good shape.
The lone fact that nobody will want the U.S. currency for probably years means that we will be forced to reboot our own industrial sector with a crafts/manufacturing movement to fill our own needs, which would eventually lead to the creation of a new export economy.  We can essentially return to the post-Civil War America that enjoyed tariff protection of our industry, the expansion of creativity and communications, and internal commerce that benefited all of our citizens, without the encumbrance of taxes or entitlements. Everyone will have to work to earn a wage.
Yeah, long term we could come out of this all right… if we do this right.

Defunkers for Personal Protection

Defunker I and II

Examples of the Defunker I and II

If you log onto http://www.turtleisland.cc and then go to the “medicine pendants” page, the first things you’ll see are the “defunkers”. Members of three different paranormal investigating groups in Houston consider these their P.P.E.s (Personal Protective Equipment). In fact, it is their members that dubbed them “defunkers”. People who do energy work like these both as tools for focusing energy and as protection from inappropriate energies. People who work in dense energy environments like bars and hospitals appreciate the “defunkers”, too! These little assemblies have come in so handy on so many occasions, that they’ve become absolutely entrenched – - I have to keep these in inventory!

As with many discoveries, this one was quite by accident. I was making jewelry, and I had the “urge” to wrap an obsidian wand a certain way, with certain stones. As with all assemblies, I put it in a bag with other things that I would energize and bless before I put them on my display boards. I pulled out that obsidian wand and handed it to Rick Ferguson during set up at a fair the next weekend. Since he was busy setting up, he popped it into his pocket to look at later. Rick is a big jolly fellow that occasionally rubs the anal-retentive types the wrong way – - probably the reason we get along so well. During the day, some woman walked up to Rick and asked him if he would like some healing work. Rick said yes without asking what flavor of energy work, or who the woman’s teacher was. He sat there, feeling this funky energy flying around him, but it wasn’t sticking. The woman was doing her best to block his head chakras. Some time after that, I asked him what he thought of that piece I had handed him during set-up. He fished it out of his pocket and had this shocked look of realization. This kept him from getting “funked-up”. I couldn’t get it away from him, either. The rest is history.

The mahogany obsidian is a nice, smooth, laid-back variety of obsidian. Obsidian is well known for it’s capacity to shield against inappropriate energies. Wrapped along with this combination of stones, and energized by my angels, it has the vibration of Archangel Michael’s sword. The energized combination is much more than the sum of its parts. When people are looking for something of a protective nature, I point them to these assemblies on my display boards and ask them to pick one up and hold it to see how it feels to them. A lot of them purchase. I never, ever have to hard-sell. If they don’t like that particular vibe, I can equip them otherwise.

I’ve always liked how the black obsidian arrowheads look and feel, so I began making “defunkers” out of them. Granted, the black obsidian is really tough looking; the appearance has all the subtlety of a sledgehammer. The “defunker charm-collector” is a more stealthy method of packaging for this combination, great for wearing in a conservative workplace. I actually make a “defunker bracelet” which has the same protective vibe in your energy field, but does not really function as a tool.

Because of its nature and intent, it is best to wear your defunker either over your thymus or solar plexus; whichever feels best to you. The funkier the environment you are in, the closer you need it to you. It works well worn inside your shirt, like Kevlar armor. It is more a statement of intent and strength when worn outside the clothing – - like subliminally saying, “don’t jack with me”.

The Great Awakening Comes…

Okay… the banksters are meeting and they are demanding ANOTHER $100 TRILLION in credit to play around with, secured by our taxes, which they stated they want to DOUBLE.  That means, they are going to further debase our currency, liquifying the economy until the entire world economy collapses so they can roll out the global police state.  This same gang of criminals with the IMF and World Bank have been melting down one country after another with their central banking fiat currency schemes; now the’re melting down the U.S. dollar, and the inflation is literally already causing rampant misery throughout the world.  Food prices going up here in the U.S. is painful, but it is downright deadly in places like Egypt, Algeria, Tunisia, Morocco, Jordan, Yemen… and elsewhere where common wages are so very low that a bag of raw wheat is survival.

Europe is also in melt-down mode:  Iceland is hunting down and prosecuting bankers… they are the only country that has it right… by defaulting on the bankers’ debt created from derivatives, so Iceland is actually recovering.  Ireland is about to have an election, and they will be sweeping out the old, corrupt politicians that sold Ireland out… you can expect the new government to be primarily classic IRA and they will likely renege on the bankers’ derivative debt and start investigating the bankers. I sure hope so. When Ireland sets themselves free, that will urge the other enslaved countries to do likewise. I fully expect to see Greece, Portugal and Spain to kick the IMF and the European Union to the curb. It is long since time for everyone to stand against this globalist banker takeover of everything.

Right now, Egypt is in full melt-down mode, with the police joining with the rioters and the military mowing people down in the streets. Fox News is trying to spin their version of the news to say that Egypt is being taken over my Muslim extremists.  The truth is, these people are starving and they are tired of being stomped on and they have nothing to lose by overthrowing a corrupt, fascist regime.  Granted, it is entirely possible that fringe elements could take advantage of the chaos to seize power.  The rioting is bad in Cairo, but Suez is really going down horribly, and if the Suez Canal closes down, we will be staring at oil going to $150-$200 a barrelPay attention, people, this is important.

It doesn’t matter whether it is an organic response to the inflation creating higher prices, or if these uprisings are CIA-created color revolutions. The results will become self-evident. $120 a barrel oil brings the price of gasoline up over $4 a gallon. We can expect to see shortages, further hikes in food prices because of transportation costs, and we will likely start seeing civil unrest.  Whatever happens in Europe, tends to happen here in the U.S. a year later, and that is coming up soon.

Gang… it is coming down to the wire. PLEASE stock up at least 3 months’ supply of food, preferably more, while you can still afford it. Load up on all the close-outs you find of canned foods and definitely load up on basic dry staples.  Load up on bottled water, or draw and preserve it. Get out of paper… that means pull your money out of the stock market and banks, and buy the things you will need to take care of your family… food, guns & ammo, survival type supplies, gold and silver.  If you see the Euro currency melt-down, then we in America have less than 3 weeks to get out of paper; you might as well do it now while the price of silver is being manipulated downward. By all means, buy silver because that is how you will preserve your wealth when the cash ceases to be accepted.

Believe me, every time I get a paycheck, I either go buy groceries (some for now and some for storage) or I buy silver bullion. I’m trying not to keep any excess money in my bank accounts. I’m doing constructive things with the money for as long as I can. I went to Sam’s Club tonight on the way home… I picked up some canned goods and spices, and some frozen vegetables to toss into the dehydrator. Every time I go, I also pick up another block of toilet paper.

We’re dealing with rampant corruption and loss of the rule of law here in the U.S.   The banks have been foreclosing on homes without being able to show the note, and even foreclosing on people who had never missed a payment. Now they are trying to get the laws rewritten so they don’t have to show any paper work.  Taxes are going up everywhere while services are being whittled away.  

It is my fondest hope, and I pray about it every day, that all the people of the world wake up and see this globalist banker takeover for what it is and resist their ushering in of the evil ones’ planned global police state. I would imagine that a lot of people in Europe and the Middle East are already wrapping their heads around hunting down these so-called elites and hanging them from the nearest trees for this unprecedented level of theft and destruction of the entire world economy.  Personally… I kinda think it’s a good idea. What goes around comes around.

The Death of the Dollar?

The mass media occasionally rolls out an announcement of what the globalists are about to roll out:  http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703313304576132170181013248.html?mod=WSJ_hp_mostpop_read
They talk about it all like it’s a good thing, trying to plant the idea of a global SDR currency. You will notice that they don’t bother talking about what it will mean for the 95% of the U.S. populace that will be negatively effected.  Remember, the targe audience for the WSJ is the very people who have created all of these economic bubbles and derivatives, and have been manipulating commodities markets.

The Economic Collapse Blog  tries to spell out what this means for us in more palpable language and statistics. http://theeconomiccollapseblog.com/archives/people-of-earth-prepare-for-economic-disaster   They go into what the dollar devaluation/inflation is meaning for the world, and the fact that the sovereign debt crises has been exported to every country on Earth… we have a sea of red ink covering the planet… and most of it is on paper only… derivatives created by Wall Street and the bankers. But still, it doesn’t quite hit home as to what it exactly means for you and me.

Pastor Lindsey Williams, who routinely gets information from globalist oil executives, and Bob Chapman of the International Forecaster, have been trying to spell it out in easy-to-grasp terms. If you get the chance poke through the interviews on Alex Jones’ YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/user/TheAlexJonesChannel  and spend a little time listening in. Quite frankly, I can’t listen to these guys without wanting to go do a little more grocery or silver shopping.

Lindsey Williams has been telling us that the dollar will be officially dead by fall of 2012, but in the meantime the inflation will be hitting. There will be plenty of food in the stores, but you won’t be able to afford it with your normal paycheck. The elites will not allow the big U.S. oilfields to produce (ANWR, the Bakken, and others that are bigger than Saudi Arabia, Libya, Egypt and Iraq combined) until after oil hits $200 a barrel.  That will certainly feed inflation, and will drive up the cost of not only getting around, but food production.  Assuming you will have a job on the other side of the meltdown, it will take a long time before your employer adjusts your pay to meet with the new lack of value of the currency.  He instructs us to “get out of paper”, meaning to pull your money out of 401Ks, IRAs, stocks and bonds, and put it into precious metals and long-term storable food that will get your family through the melt-down. After the poop hits the fan, you can take your metals down to the coin dealer and cash them in for the current “coin of the realm” so you can go shopping. Williams does the “chicken little” approach, but so far what he’s been told has been accurate.  Believe me, I’m prepping.

Bob Chapman’s Friday economic report on Alex Jones’ YouTube channel is instructive as always.  He says essentially the same things and explains things from his unique point of view, having spent many years in the Intelligence industry and as a precious metals broker.  He says that because the alternate media has been getting the word out (and conversely, the mainstream media is losing its credibility and audience share) the elites are bumping up the timeline and will be making mistakes in their hubris.  They are rolling out the global police state along with the global currency and banking system. The elites are also doing their best to destabilize governments around the world, beginning with the Middle East, essentially starting the fire and then showing up pretending to be the fire department with their “solutions”.  This is a world-wide takeover by the bankers.  The good thing is that Iceland, Egypt and Libya aren’t buying into that noise. At some point soon, the member countries of the European Union will also begin kicking the banksters to the curb and reneging on the derivative debt.  We really need to do likewise because these globalist bankers fully intend to take us from currency wars into trade wars, and from there into HOT wars. Their intent is to kill as many people as they can.

The end of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency looks to be coming a lot faster than they’re saying at WSJ or even the best guesses by the nice folks at the National Inflation Association. China says they will not accept anything other than the yuan (or renminbi) in exchange for their goods beginning this fall. That alone effectively means the death of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency.  The French president has already publicly called for the removal of the dollar as the world’s reserve currency, saying that a new global currency would be a good thing.  Of course, the euro is fading fast, since all of the countries in the European Union have central banks that can also print euros, thereby debasing that currency.  Lindsey Williams says that the euro will die first, and at that point, everyone in the U.S. will have 3 weeks at most to get out of paper.

It also means that as fewer and fewer countries and individuals buy U.S. T-bills (our debt), and the Federal Reserve buys those T-bills (called monetizing our debt) with the fiat money they invent out of thin air, that our currency will be worth less and less, and prices will go higher and higher. It is already happening. People are already fleeing paper and putting their money into commodities… read: precious metals.

Silver is at $35.56 right now. You can expect it to drop a little, then go even higher. It won’t be long before the COMEX and CME, HSBC and JPMorgan won’t be able to manipulate metals prices any longer and the lid will come off.  Expect Gold to go over $2,000 and silver over $50 pretty soon.

So what does all of this mean?  Okay… let me spell it out for those of you that still can’t figure it out, even though every time you go to the grocery store you’re able to buy less and less with the same money.  Your money is being made to be worth less and less. The money in your savings account is also worth less and less. Your 401K is worth less and less, even though it looks to be growing… the only reason the stock market looks to be growing is because of inflation pumping more and more dollars into the money supply.  It won’t be very long before your entire weeks’ wages won’t buy enough food for a week.  By that point, it will be reasonable to expect civil unrest… and you will want to stay out of anything like that, lest you get scooped up and stuck in a FEMA camp. If you still have a job after the melt-down, wages will be the last thing to rise in response. That means that whatever food you have stored will be very important to your family’s survival.

When the poop hits the fan… that is, when a confluence of factors hits and suddenly nothing will work… you can reasonably expect some really crazy stuff.  The official death of the dollar is likely to happen in one day, perhaps overnight, and then your money will suddenly be worth either nothing, or will be replaced with a new currency at probably 1/4 of what you had. Either way, you will have lost everything “on paper”… stocks, bonds and cash.  You might as well spend it now so that your family will have food to eat while waiting for things to settle down.

What I’ve been telling my customers is to buy bulk dry foods and canned goods right now, while you can. Take advantage of the purchasing power you currently have while the current inventories are still relatively cheap. Buy those 5-gallon paint buckets with the rubber o-rings in the lids from the local hardware stores (they have a #2 recycle code on them… that’s food-grade) and put your dry foods in those. They’re stackable. Start with one for rice and one for beans, then expand into other items like flour, cornmeal, powdered milk, and so forth.  I send a lot of people to the Mormon Church’s Home Storage Canneries to buy bulk dry foods on the cheap to jump-start their storage programs. 

Ignore the mass media. Forget about what the government and the Federal Reserve say. Turn off the T.V. and get ready.

An Old Friend Passes…

I remember meeting J’ton at a Lone Star Dowsers meeting back in the early 90s. She had only recently escaped “Frankenstein”, her abusive husband.  She had also only recently left exotic dancing as a way of making a living.  Having been living on the razor’s edge for so many years, and having already had one near death experience, she had already processed so much of her shadow. I found in her a very evolved person.  In subsequent months I helped her through withdrawal from marijuana… quite without knowing it; I just knew I had to call her at a given time. 
Over time, she processed through what she had gone through with “Frankenstein” and quit feeding the negativity with that nickname. She processed further difficulties with “frenemies” and toxic relatives, learning to cut the toxicity out of her life. I applauded as she kicked manipulators and thieves to the curb, chewing them out as she did so.
Our typical means of hanging out was over the phone… we’d have marathon conversations covering hundreds of topics, from the most spiritual stuff to the basics of painting the living room or the finer points of gardening. We went through Reiki and Johrei training together. We were each other’s best teachers and shrinks.
Coming up, we were both latchkey kids, except I had both of my parents, and she only had her mother, two sisters and brother.  Her mom was an advocate for her kids, but admittedly not much of a parent… they didn’t have birth control back in the the 1950s, and this woman certainly would have used it if it had been available. As it was, the lady was stuck rearing 4 kids solo back when women didn’t really have many career options.  Once the father walked out, her mom had to go from cleaning offices, to secretarial work for a homebuilder, and ultimately to becoming a realtor; she wasn’t around the house to do much parenting so she drilled it into the kids that they’d better not get into any trouble.  My friend’s overall feeling of the situation was that she and her siblings would not have been born had her mother had a choice… a feeling of abandonment in the womb.
She went from being an “A” student in high school that took mostly classes where she DIDN’T know the subject matter. She went to work for several drug stores. She got good at accounting.
She got married, then divorced, then married a guy that had previously taken revenge on her behalf after he had gotten out of prison… that was “Frankenstein”. You see, back when J’ton was all of 12, she went to a friend’s house and the friend’s high-school age older sister was having a big party. A group of these older boys took J’ton out into the boonies and gang-raped her.  J’ton was so socially astute at that time, that she managed to convince her rapists to deliver back home to her house instead of killing her and dumping her body out in some field.
When “Frankenstein” got out of juvenile prison for some other crime, he made contact with her, and promptly began hunting these rapists down one by one, first stalking and terrorizing them, then ultimately at least beating them to a pudding, crippling them.  She married that guy and spent years working off what must have been lifetimes of bad karmas. She was beaten, browbeaten and threatened.  She paid the bills in the household… this is when she got into exotic dancing, since working for a drugstore didn’t make much money. Granted, she only worked at high end clubs on the far end of town from where she lived. She bought herself an RV as a potential escape vehicle. She went fishing to get away from it all.  During this time, she became addicted to heroine, pot, and barbiturates. She went through two abortions and one tubal pregnancy… which was the only point when Frankenstein ever showed her any compassion.  She did the old back and forth of the typical abuser/abusee relationship… a beating followed by a honeymoon period, followed by a more severe beating.   The abuse finally got to where she had to escape from her house in fear for her life, wearing only a torn nightgown, no shoes and no panties, and walked to her mother’s house, where she stayed for some years. She worked in dancing just a few nights a month… enough to pay her bills and start creating a new life for herself.  She read a lot of metaphysical and spiritual books. She finally got it together and started getting off the drugs… she said the heroine was easy to quit, while the barbiturates had her rolled up in a ball on the floor of her closet for days at a time.  At some point, she had to leave her mom’s house for fear of “Frankenstein’s” threats… she moved out on her own in an effort to keep her mom safe.
J’ton told me of her near-death experience back when she was in her 20s… she had attempted to commit suicide by drugs and was taken into the tunnel of Light. She was hauled before the Throne of God, with Jesus present, and chastised for committing this hideous crime against one of God’s own creations (herself). She was shown what the rest of her life would be like, with a number of key events. She was introduced to the being who would be “walking in” to take over had she decided to abdicate her physical life. She chewed out her “spirit guide” for being such a wuss.  Ultimately, she went back to her body. Over the years, she watched as one marker event come true after another. Some events never got a chance to come about.
Over the years, she had many experiences with extraterrestrials… when she was perhaps 6 or 8, she saw one of the Grays in her yard, and worried that the little guy might be lost. The lack of fear probably kept her from being bothered by them.  More recently at her house in Spring, a group of very high beings hung out in her house and yard… turns out they were transdimensional aliens that figured her place was a hotel/rest stop, and were puzzled that she wasn’t rustling up grub for them. 
More recently, as she was in the process of packing her household to move up to the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, her household was visited, but this time by bad aliens. She knew they were in the house, and they had paralyzed her, and sprayed her with something. She spent the next month or so pulling small nano-implants out of her legs and lower back. She pins the beginning of her sickness to this incident.  In subsequent months, she had more and more pain in the lower end of her colon, along with a tumor on the outside of her lady-parts. Her husband was working, but had been denied insurance, so she didn’t seek out a doctor.  The pain grew and grew to the point where she could not sit in a car. She couldn’t search for her next house, and had to leave that task to her husband, who simply didn’t understand what was going on with her. She took increasing amounts of aspirin over this period, which barely controlled the pain.
When at last her husband had a job with insurance, she looked for doctors. At length, she found a chiropractor who told her how to approach the system and still have it handled by insurance in spite of the difficulty being obviously preexisting. She went to one of those suburban stand-alone emergency rooms and they sent her to a hospital for admission, which led to a whole string of testing.  The doctors sat her husband down and told him what she was likely dying of cancer as he broke down crying.  Around the same time as her diagnosis, her mom was diagnosed with advanced lung cancer, and died a few months later.
She was down to lying in bed, occasionally going to the bathroom, and occasionally calling her husband to request specific things from the grocery store. She ate the insides of peach, nectarine and apricot seeds. She ate tumeric, but discovered that it detoxed the painkillers so quickly and to such an extent that she couldn’t take it any more.  As the time progressed, she was able to speak on the phone with me less and less, and I felt guilty when it got to where she needed to hang up after perhaps only 5 minutes of chatting. 
When she told me specifically what she was dealing with, and what the doctors had given her to deal with it… a form of Morphine… I had to ask the question: “J’ton… you know that when they give you morphine, they’ve essentially written you off… they’ve sent you home to die. My question for you is, have you written yourself off or do you think you’re gonna beat this thing?”  Her reply was that she felt like she was going to beat it. 
Well… the aspect of Spirit has a number of ways of interpreting things.  Beating a disease may not mean actually conquering the disease and making the body well.  Sometimes the aspect of Spirit sees victory as just walking away from the body and letting the damn disease have what’s left of the body and giving you a NEW body.  Having seen heaven, and having memories of past lives on different planets, J’ton was not really attached to physical life. She wanted to go to that other earth where things were easy.  She spent much of her life studying for when she got to go back into Spirit.
This past month I had tried several times to call her, feeling that something was going on. Having been in hospice for some two weeks,  J’ton finally beat colon cancer Wednesday afternoon. She had just enjoyed her single most favorite meal… grilled cheese and tomato soup. Shortly thereafter, she needed a morphine push, and settled down for a nap… and released her gentle spirit.
Her husband called me Thursday to break the news.  He said that she didn’t want a service and that her ashes were going to be divided into four packets… the first would be sprinkled over her family’s burial plot, another would be sprinkled among the various planters in her favorite mall (her hobby was shopping), one would be sprinkled among the planters in her favorite Indian casino, and the last most likely will be sprinkled out at her favorite fishing wharf at Galveston.  I contacted various mutual friends, including two spiritualists to make sure that she went into the Light… seems being pumped full of morphine will confuse even the most evolved spirits.  I sent her many prayers and much energy with the intent of nurturing her through the transition. I know she’s been set free, and that she’s been looking over my shoulder as I’ve typed this out.  I don’t begrudge her release, but I really miss my friend. It really leaves a hole in my life.
Looking back over the last few months… the lady who runs one of the local psychic fairs has held fairly regular short memorial services for local psychics and the like that had chosen this point in time to go to Spirit, and not just the old farts that were already circling the toilets, either.
You see, it is “THE TIMES”.  You see, knowing what we are facing in the next few years, a lot of people who are not on the “earth mission” made the deal with their Higher Selves before entering their current bodies that they didn’t want to deal with the funk, so they are leaving.  Some people who ARE on the “earth mission” are graduating to the next level in order to better assist. Look around and take note of the people passing around you… some are escaping and others are graduating, while the rest of us are either getting prepared and entrenched in advance of the coming societal upheavals, and the rest of the people around us are having one last hurrah before their worlds are turned upside down.

How to Put on an Event

Any event, no matter what the focus, whether it is a music festival, gala fund-raiser, carnival, county fair, educational conference or pow-wow, has its staging requirements in order to assure success. Having just come away from what was supposed to have been a 4-day regional dowsing conference that fell flat on its kiester, I really felt the need to describe this for quick reference. With some 30 years in advertising, marketing, PR, graphics, printing and all related activities, I can offer some simple guidelines so that any event planners out there can be successful. It isn’t rocket science, but it does require a certain amount of organization and a real plan.

At a minimum of 6 months in front of your actual event, you need to have your date and site completely solidified and your committee in place.  If it is a yearly event, you sign the contract to reserve the venue for next year before the end of this year’s event. The bigger conferences and trade shows sign multi-year contracts to get the better deals. If your core audience has other competing events in the same time frame, you have to make sure you are not competing for those people because it will hurt you! How important is this? It is the very foundation.

Believe it or not, I’ve seen various groups still trying to find a venue as little as one month ahead of their event… it doesn’t work. Some years ago Texas Chiropractic College was trying to bring a high-society donor crowd to their gala… and they scheduled the gala for the same night as the Junior League of Houston’s gala… the result was a very expensive party for some 200 chiropractors and none of the society swells… and yes, they lost a lot of money on it.

The deposit money for next year’s event must come off the top of this year’s event’s income.  If you don’t have all the money you need to reserve your venue at that point, negotiate for the latest point they will accept the money to give you time to get sponsors.  Local companies are certainly willing to sponsor… for example, Green Mountain Energy, some radio stations and BFI have been very active in their sponsorships. 

If this is a big event which will take a lot of capital to put on, then fundraising events have to begin as early as possible, perhaps 9 months in front of the big event.  You name it… fashion trunk shows, psychic fairs, pub crawls, book signings, brunches, and concerts at local venues where part of the door is donated.  Be creative. 

Raffles or silent auctions are often a part of either pre-event fundraising or the event itself. Of course your group can always scrounge some stuff from around the house to give away, but if you are selling those tickets to raise money, you need some worthwhile stuff, so this is where your network of contacts will be valuable.  Gift cards are all the rage these days, but one or two larger ticket items help close the deal.

Your committee is important. You need “doers” instead of “talkers”. Make sure that everyone is clear on their jobs. If you don’t know your committee, find some small tests for each person.  Personally, I’d rather have a couple of unimaginative people with a “git-er-done” work ethic than a pack of self-serving drama-queens any day. Meet with your committee regularly. E-mail really helps to stay in touch.

I’ve also witnessed a local renaissance festival in the Pearland area, that lost the rights to its name because one of the staffers held the DBA on it, so when this flim-flammer finally left (taking a lot of vendor booth money with him), they had to change the festival’s name, and as a result couldn’t put on the event because they had to get re-licensed and re-permitted, and of course, the local power-brokers at city hall threw a monkey wrench into the works, and they had to wait another year to begin recouping their investments.

There is also a renaissance festival in west Texas that’s been floundering for the past several years because of crooks on the staff and a complete lack of money to either make necessary upgrades to the property (the dirt road keeps washing out) or even do basic advertising.  They’ve blown their credibility for the last time this year.  If you’ve got a situation where you’re mopping up after someone else, you either have to go large and rewrite the paperwork so you can get a loan, or start over from scratch.

Have your whole itinerary mapped out by 120 days before the event. This is GO TIME. You need to start promotions with the chambers of commerce, networking other non-profits, giving lectures and having informational booths at other events, and doing press releases at 4 months ahead of your event in most cases.

You can locate local, regional, state and trade publications over the web nowadays, and build a database spreadsheet to make mailing out your press releases faster and easier.

This is also the point where you need to start booking your display advertising since most magazines have their ad deadlines one or two months ahead of publication. You need to set appointments with advertising managers to negotiate some deep discounts on display advertising and how much they are willing to help you out by peppering their calendar with PSA mentions, not just to promote the event, but to recruit volunteers… you have to get the media people on your side.   You can start with small announcement ads for volunteers, talent and vendors in appropriate newsletters at this point, if you don’t already have them lined up. Please bear in mind that the very LEAST amount of advertising you can get away with is one solid month of coverage in front of the event.

Getting radio stations to mention your event is great, but it’s very much a crap shoot… they need those press releases ahead of time, too.

Remember that all of the broadcast and print media are hurting, so they cannot afford to give much space to press releases, so you often have to buy space to get mentioned in their community events calendars. 

You must also have flyers ready for volunteers to place into appropriate retail outlets and take to other events… sometimes you can get a printer to donate flyers.  The thing about flyers is they have to be out several months in advance to be picked up by the target audience.  Flyers are probably the most effective single method of advertising, so use this method!

You need to be booking talent, speakers and vendors as early as you can and throughout the process. Bands book their gigs for months in advance. The more popular the band, the further in advance you have to book them, and all the more important that you are not conflicting with bigger events in the region.  If your timing is good, often a band will donate their performance for P.R. purposes.  Most bands make their real money from CD & cassette sales.   

Vendors that work a whole festival circuit need the lead time to work your event into their schedule as well. You don’t want to leave any of this for the last minute. You want GOOD vendors, not the psychiatric cases that come out of the woodwork.

Keep a comprehensive contact database and don’t attempt to commit anything to memory. The more you get done in the 120-90 days before the event, the less stress you will have and the more successful the event will be. You have to have a plan and work that plan.

E-mail is the very last method of advertising you should consider. It is a great tweaker, but you cannot rely on it. I’ve seen event organizers attempt to float all of their advertising by e-mail and it simply doesn’t work. Bet on the spam filters removing most of it.

Websites are all-important nowadays, and it isn’t expensive or difficult to put a decent site together and get it registered on the search engines.  Make the maximum use of it.  You can have pages for the event itself, as well as pages for vendors, talent, volunteers, and all events leading up to the big event.  A good website keeps you from having to answer the phone at all hours.  Have a good contact form so you can build a customer database.  Have a full event brochure available in PDF format for easy download.  PayPal is an excellent tool for handling money… you can put PayPal buttons to sell tickets and various merchandise.  You can feature links to CafePress to sell imprinted merchandise such as mugs, caps and t-shirts. The quicker you get a website up, the better.

Preppers Unite… Quick!

My blog, originally started as a way of teaching about stone medicine and new age/spiritual topics, has shifted toward being an informational forum  for other people who have gotten similar guidance to begin making preparations for the oddball times to come.

I’m talking about getting yourselves liquid, getting rid of excess possessions and making a few bucks while you can.  Then get into storing food and water, and securing your property and your person.  Make sure you have one or more good working guns and plenty of ammo for each one, and make sure each member of your household knows how to use same. Food prices have gone up and estimated 40% since the beginning of the year.  In the event of martial law and civil unrest, you will either have to bug-out or shelter in place. How long can you live on the food you have stored in your house? Do you have something to barter with? Silver has been shorted in the markets by the banksters… take advantage of the opportunity to buy some now.

I’ve been trying to get a bead on the time frame of when this stuff is probably going to come about. I tried checking with a couple of astrologers, who both said that it is “hard to call” using their system. Taking a look at the aspects: On July 20th, Saturn goes into Libra, while squaring Pluto and opposing Uranus. Pluto and Uranus are all about CHANGE, while Saturn is about stabilization as well as being a harsh teacher. We have three planets squaring with cardinal signs.  The United States was born in Cancer. On July 23rd, Jupiter goes retrograde in Aries… Jupiter is your money planet, and it’s about to go backwards until November 18th. We have some favorable aspects with the full moon on July 25th. On August 6th we have a GRAND CROSS and on August 20th, Mercury goes retrograde until September 12th.  That is a lot going on!  My astrologer, Enola Dominiak, says that she’s worried that this Saturn in Libra cycle for the next couple of years may involve violence.

Okay… so my own take, based on this and some dowsing along with my own gut:  We will probably have one more modest stock market rally this summer, and it won’t last long. The economic stuff will become patently obvious by fall, and the currency could crash between then and the first quarter of 2011. We essentially have through the fall to get it together. If you have a lot of money in IRAs, you may have to start getting it out a little at a time, considering that banks tend to have limits on how much cash they can give you.

http://geraldcelentechannel.blogspot.com/2010/07/alex-jones-issues-red-alert-100.html

When you get the chance, please take a look at this video of Alex Jones’ program posted on Gerald Celente’s blogsite. Granted, Alex Jones’ delivery style is a tad over the top, but I think he’s essentially got it right. We can expect an engineered terror attack, most likely before the end of this year. We can expect the econonmic mess to be patently obvious to all by this fall. We can most likely expect the crash of the dollar early next year.

The cool thing is that WE THE PEOPLE are the wild card in all of this.  The globalist cabal is afraid of us. They know we’re waking up and we can oppose them. By standing up and opposing expanding government power, with the use of our law enforcement as nothing more than a revenue-generating tool, we stand up for ourselves and our freedom.  Arizona is removing the network of speeding cameras because the majority of people refuse to pay the fines. Arizona has made the federal laws regarding immigration their state laws, and is now poised to enforce those new state laws this summer, in spite of the federal suit to stop them from enforcing the federal law of the land.

Obama clearly wants to crash the system and he’s been siding with an assortment of people with that stated goal. Everyone on Obama’s cabinet is an extremist or globalist, and most have had a hand in creating the economic collapse while directly profiting from taking jobs out of the country and people from their homes. These, and other assorted corporate creepos, are engineering a series of disasters… economic, environmental and socialogical… to suit their own agenda.  The cool thing is that voters are already getting rid of the status-quo careerist politicians of both parties in favor of constitutionalists (Tea Party) in the primaries.  We can expect Obama and his cronies to push through their agenda as fast as they can while they are still lame ducks in office, before the new people are sworn in. They don’t see any problems with doing as much harm as they can since they no longer have anything to lose. They just passed the so-called “financial reform act” to give the Federal Reserve and the banks even more power.  We need to make a lot of noise at these legislators… failing that, we need to make sure our new candidates dismember all that nasty, disasterous legislation.

Gang, we really do have the power to look after ourselves, our families and our communities. The answer to “1984″ is “1776″.  We have to be ready to stand up for our freedom. The more noise we make, whether through blogging, or Tea Party events, or simply talking to friends and neighbors one-on-one, is all it takes to stem the tide of the global police state that the CFR and Bilderbergs are trying to impose on us.

Eerily Quiet 4th of July…

The date is 7/7/2011. The price of silver is back to $36.28… it was in the $33 range before the holiday weekend. Gold is at $1533.67. 

Here in Houston, and indeed most of the Southwestern United States, we are experiencing a severe drought.  There is a fireworks ban for the next 3 months.  This is the first 4th of July in my memory when I didn’t have to deal with the idiots living in my subdivision keeping me up all hours and scaring my cats with their fireworks, and then leaving trash all over the streets and lawns.  We are very far behind in rain fall… to the point where people may be praying for a hurricane. When you step out onto the grass it crackles, no matter how often you water it.  Local wildlife is under such stress that I keep several bowls of water filled in the back yard out of compassion… never mind the fact that my yard is on the raccoon and ‘possum superhighway.

Now… if for your own sake you would please go to Pastor Lindsey Williams’ blog and listen to some of the interviews, you will know what to expect.  http://lindseywilliams101.blogspot.com/   
Pastor Williams made friends of several of the elites back when he served as chaplain for the Alaska Pipeline project back in the 1970s.  He’s been updated from time to time and goes on various radio talk shows to tell people about the developments. You really want to listen to what he is relating. Other knowledgeable people such as Bob Chapman, Gerald Celente and Webster Tarpley have all been stating their own viewpoints on things that happen to dovetail with Pastor Williams’ information perfectly. 

In short, what we can expect is what I tune in and dowsed out over a year back (posted somewhere on this blog)… in short, that the effects of inflation will become patently obvious here in the U.S. this fall, so you’ve got this summer to divest yourself of all paper assets, and buy precious metals, storable food and water, and guns and ammo.  If you can afford it, by all means install some solar power as it will come in very handy indeed.  Burglar bars will also likely come in handy.

Pastor Williams says that the elites have planned and are actively creating the various color revolutions and regime changes throughout the Middle East… it is mostly theater (no real change in government) and their main purpose is to shut down the supply of the oil coming from that region.  Any one blockage will raise the price of a barrel of oil $50… shut down the Suez Canal or the Straits of Hormuz and you’re at $200 a barrel. The Egyptian putsch was first, then Libya, now Yemen, and they’re going after Syria (which will probably put us at war with both Hammas and Iran)… the very last one to fall will be Saudi Arabia. That is their plan.  Such expensive oil will be the last straw for the American economy.  Only at that point will they produce in ANWR, the Bakken, Central Texas, and Gull Island. They’re already moving the pieces into place. The elites want oil at $150-$200 a barrel before they produce those fields.

Remember that when the government has tried all their accounting sleight of hand, ceiling limits and “stimulus” and have run out of tricks, they WILL take us to war. We’ve already got troops on the ground in Libya. We have predator drones attacking Pakistan and Yemen. Iran, Pakistan and the Saudis are begging China and Russia for protection. There is one rumor that the elites are already headed to their underground bunkers as of the 7th:  http://truthfrequencynews.com/?p=5498  If so, we need to arrange for arcwelders to show up to make sure the bastards can’t get out.

According to Pastor Williams, in the short term, gasoline will stay below $5 a gallon, and silver and gold will stay in the neighborhood they are in  throughout this summer, then the prices will skyrocket in the fall.  The elites pulled back on the gasoline prices because they didn’t want people waking up too fast.  Gold is expected to hit $3,000 and silver will go to at least $75 by the end of this year, give or take.    The dollar WILL BE DEAD by this time in 2012.  Anything that is written on paper is worth the paper it is written on.

The overall feeling, as noticed by a number of journalists, is a very still, hazy, sleepy dreamlike feeling like just before the outbreak of World War II. Everyone seems to be concentrating on their own private bliss while trying to ignore the coming storm. This is probably your last chance to get your house in order.

The ONE thing the elites are afraid of is the awakening of humanity. Please, take time out and talk to all of your friends and family. Do your best to get them preparing for the worst. Help them snatch themselves away from the jaws of death.  Help them to save their dinner table and preserve their hard-earned assets. Make use of this engineered “dip” in precious metals prices to load up on silver and gold.

New Mexico is Ground Zero for the Meltdown…

An old friend just landed in town on Saturday.  After escaping south Florida, Brenda went to Santa Fe, New Mexico where someone she knew was getting ready to leave an apartment and was willing to let her move in with only a change in tenant. Because of this, she didn’t have to put down a deposit. After just over two years of scrapping and struggling, she barely got out with anything more than the clothes on her back. 
You see… there is no employment to be had in most of New Mexico. Most people who are working, and struggling with multiple part-time jobs.  Getting along in an “artists’ community” is one thing, but now even the artists have left. It used to be that you could go to the central church square and have your portrait done or buy some jewelry from someone vending from a blanket… now if you go there, you’re more likely to get smashed across the head and everything taken from you.  New Mexico is no longer a vacation destination.
The drug cartels essentially run the state and have coopted local law enforcement.  The police quit investigating burglaries, robberies or car theft altogether; if someone calls twice, they tell that person to cease calling any more.  Traffic is the only law enforcement at this stage because it generates revenue.  The FBI have had to move in and begin investigations on all levels, setting up stings as they could.
My friend Brenda worked as janitor and event organizer for a small meeting center. It became increasingly obvious that the place was being used to launder money. She lived in a small adobe apartment house within sight of that meeting center. The building’s owners worked for the local mob and the maintenance guy and his woman used access to the master keys to rob every apartment a little at a time in an effort to take more over time.  When Brenda had discovered the theft(s), the loss of most of her valuables had been disguised as the various plastic storage tubs had been reorganized by the thieves.  Constant upgrades in security made little difference, either.  She moved to a 50+ apartment community further away only to discover things just as bad there… the leasing office was being run by the cartel, allowing all sorts of criminals in.
Once she finally got to the space where she was ready to move, we discovered that the local apartment locator had little knowledge of the areas she was sending Brenda suggestions for.  I looked them up only to find most were in what I would consider seriously dodgy if not potentially dangerous areas.  On my own I found a large apartment complex tucked back over in Copperfield and sent my friend the information.  I had to go down there several times, one to drop a check for a deposit, another to drop another check.  I’ll have to do another blog entry regarding the apartment management… you wouldn’t believe it.
When at last Brenda had the 26 foot rented moving truck loaded with her possessions and her SUV attached to a tow hitch behind that truck, they got under way.  They lost a day because a high pressure oil line burst, causing them to pull over to the side of the road and wait for the rental company’s mechanics to fix the problem.  She’ll be comped for hotel as a result, and another day added to the lease.
When she at last landed at the apartment complex, got the keys and looked in the place, she discovered that in spite of the staff having assigned that apartment and having 2 weeks’ notice, that the apartment had never been turn-keyed… dirty carpets, dirty walls, numerous malfunctions throughout.  In Texas the law states that all apartments must be painted before leasing to someone new.  Since the leasing staff had given her the bum’s rush so they could leave for the 4th of July weekend, the lease was not signed. My friend has a large number of negotiating points.
As Brenda and her friend unloaded and unpacked, she discovered that the contents of most of her boxes had been rifled through and contents were missing. Seems that while she was in the process of filling out paperwork and being on the phone to handle various aspects of business, she had left the truck unlocked and unguarded, allowing a “neighbor” plenty of time to steal anything he wanted… and steal he did. She knew better than that.
Like I said, she’s fortunate to have gotten out of there with the clothes on her back.  She went to Santa Fe with $10,000 in savings and some beautiful jewelry, all of which was stolen. Add to that the constant stress of having to be hyper-vigilant in the face of skyrocketing violent crime, and she’s lucky to have her health at all.
Sunday I went over and took her and her  friend out to a restaurant, and after that I helped to get her kitchen set up and some things  shuffled in.  Today as I waited for the sun to go down so I can help some more, she went  to the closest grocery store for the first time. After the high prices of Santa Fe, the local Kroger’s selection and prices were pure heaven; spending $100 there purchased what would have cost $250-$300 in Santa Fe.  I replied, “Welcome to Houston!” 
She’ll do just fine here.

Stop Weeding

Chickweed: plentiful in my yard!

I’m what I term as a half-ass gardener.  I’m so busy with so darn many projects, that I just can’t keep up.  I’ve long since wondered about all these unplanned for plants that keep showing up in my raised garden beds.  Finally, an article in the Houston Chronicle sent me to some good information. The site is  http://www.foragingtexas.com  and it shows a whole range of edible plants across many of Texas’ different ecosystems. 

It turns out that chickweed, one of the most abundant unplanned for plants in my back yard is not only tasty but fairly nutritious in reasonable quantities (has saponin, which can upset stomachs.  Other common “weeds” such as chickory, clover, pigweed, sow thistle, and dandelion are all also good and nutritious to eat, though often with caveats that they be cooked to remove the irritating hairs, stickers and pricks.  Clover makes a great tea with numerous health benefits.

Pigweed: a type of amaranth that is plentiful in my yard

Cleaver

Cleaver, the clever stickly weed

Most shocking of all… goodness me!… is something called cleaver… that accursed stickly plant that takes over just about every spot… is also a food plant!  The entry shows the exact plant and says “They can be eaten raw but their tiny hairs irritate most people. Cooking them removes this problem. Seeds roasted for coffee, leaves/stems raw though better cooked; tea from stems & leaves.”  Holy crud!  I’ve been throwing this stuff away? 

Amaranth... who woulda known?

Another shock… how would I have known that plant I’ve been pulling up is amaranth?  I’ve been buying the grain and cooking it up as a high protein substitute for cream of wheat for years… and now I find that I’ve been pulling it up… and the leaves can be eaten raw!

Posts in other areas show that a lot of common landscaping plants such as the redbud tree (seed pods and flowers), canna lily (tubers and young shoots), day lily (Hemerocallis fulva species only; young leaves-raw or cooked; flowers/pods raw or cooked; tubers-cooked), purslane, hibiscus (flowers, leaves, seeds, roots), and acorns from various oaks (with some preparation: leach out tannins with lots of water then grind to flour, roast nuts then grind for coffee), and of course prickly pear pads and seed pods (ever seen nopalitos on a Mexican breakfast menu?). 

This concept is a real eye-opener… it takes you out of the garden and into the buffet of the greater world around you.  Getting to know all of these plants gives you a sense of security. It also gives you the idea of including a bottle of salad dressing in your bug-out-bag. 

This site also listed a whole range of other useful sites for foragers:  http://www.texasbeyondhistory.net/cabeza-cooking/inland.html

The Practical Side of Preparing for the Apocalypse

http://www.naturalnews.com/028712_preparedness_survival.html  Just got a link to an article about this!   And:  http://www.infowars.com/u-s-food-prices-spiraling-out-of-control/

I’ve had the guidance to store food for the long haul, Mormon style, for the last year or so. I also got the guidance to get into gardening, which is now slowly paying off. I purchased a FoodSaver System and began buying dry foods in large amounts, say, 25 pounds or more, and then breaking it down into more manageable amounts using the FoodSaver System. I’ve been buying bulk beans of all sorts, rice, quinoa, amaranth, millet, oats, nonfat dry milk, and a whole range of other staples and putting them in suck-wrapped bags of 4 to 7 cups each. In addition to this, every time I hit Sam’s Club, I pick up some extra staples… Spam, canned chicken or turkey, Ro-Tel Tomatoes with Green Chiles, tomato paste and sauce, dried onions, spices… just about anything I can imagine I might need to prepare simple and nutritious meals.

In America, we are at a crossroads. We know the government is rogue, with unabated and up-front corruption, and is going the way of Nazi Germany… massive expansion of power accompanied by runaway inflation and unprecedented taxation.  People are already showing their displeasure with both political parties, and are getting more vocal about it. The government is pushing through its corporatist/new world order agenda as fast as it can before the mid-term elections.  In short, we can expect things to really get strange.

Living on the Texas gulf coast, I can tell you what cattle people can be based on what has happened during the past few hurricanes. People are short-sighted and stupid… which is to say they are prone to not planning ahead. People are not necessarily good at feeling the situation. I didn’t evacuate during either Hurricane Rita or Ike because I listened to my inner guidance. I even tried to convince my neighbors that they didn’t need to leave, and yet they spent the entire 3 days sitting on a highway in the heat, while I stayed home and relaxed in relative comfort and cooked one nice meal after another. The grocery store shelves were empty 3 days ahead of hurricane landfall. After the hurricane had come and gone, people stood in line for hours outside of local grocery stores, which had very little to sell, but were only letting 5 people at a time inside anyway. The traffic stayed crazy the entire time. It took two months for the grocery store shelves in my area to get back to normal stock levels.

The thing is, the big forecast economists like Gerald Celente and Peter Schiff predict hyper-inflation possibly hitting by the end of this year, and by 2012 at the very latest, causing prices to go up to where most people’s paychecks can’t keep up enough just to put food on the table. That sets the stage for civil unrest, there is the possibility of having to shelter in place… perhaps for weeks. http://www.prisonplanet.com/%e2%80%9cthings-are-never-going-to-get-that-bad%e2%80%9d.html

I can tell you that inflation is already hitting at the grocery stores, and they aren’t carrying the variety they used to.

If the crazies running that whole “new world order” thing manage to pick a war between Iran and Israel, it would probably involve a nuclear exchange and the price of oil would go up. Gas prices could go over $10 a gallon, which would bring most food transport to a screeching halt, and would certainly shove all prices skyward. You’re looking at supply versus demand, and a lot of people caught with their pants down. Depending on the season, we could see riots, or segments of the population starving to death… or dying in FEMA camps. Martial law could become a possibility, with entire neighborhoods closed off by military cordons. It might take a while before things settle down again.

The Mormons have it right… they encourage their families to save as much money as they can and store large amounts of food at home – a three-month supply of what they normally eat and a year’s worth of long-term stocks such as wheat, rice and nuts. Many Mormons also can their own food, and their 140 Mormon storehouses include canneries that stay busy… even more now because of the economy and the number of natural disasters. www.providentliving.org

I’m not a Mormon, but I was reared on the Texas gulf coast. We understood the need for stored water and “hurricane food” that we maintained and cycled through the pantry, and of course, the means to cook a meal, whether charcoal or propane.  http://rocketstoves.org/ has how-to material on making a stove that will heat a whole gallon of water with a few twigs as fuel. Or buy one already made from http://www.stovetec.net  I’ve certainly got twigs in my yard.

Now, when you buy and repackage bulk foods, you have to get into the concept of cycling this stuff. You have to eat it and replace it. I discovered that this cuts down on food expenses quite nicely, while cleaning up your diet.  Believe me, your gut will thank you. If you can only find quinoa at the local health food store for around $5 a pound, and you can buy 25 pounds of it in bulk for $2 a pound, then that is a substantial savings, even with shipping costs. Every dollar you save is worthwhile.

A 12-ounce can of turkey meat, half a cup of brown rice, some non-MSG bullion, a fresh onion, some tarragon, and either a can or packet of frozen mixed veggies makes a really good chicken dish in the rice cooker.  For added pop, I make up a packet of biscuit mix and add that in little globs on top to cook… instant dumplings. 

I purchased some whole grain brown rice elbow pasta from http://www.sunorganic.com and decided to make macaroni and cheese with it… a little butter, milk, Velveeta, and a pinch each of paprika and turmeric. It is far, far better than any other you’ve ever had.

Please talk to your friends and relatives about this topic. Ask them to at least start buying a few extra pantry staples every time they go to the grocery store. When I mention this among people I work around, it is often the case that someone says that their pastor has been encouraging them to stock up… that’s a good thing. Listen… I’d rather have to give food to the food banks than not have it when I really need it.

Ankle-Biters and Divine Light

It never fails.  It doesn’t matter whether it is during peak or off hours, the wait staff of any restaurant will invariably attempt to stick us in the booth next to the family with multiple kids.  I think that children should never be dragged into restaurants unless they are trained to sit up straight and behave like miniature adults.  Most parents are far too lacking in their skills to manage this level of discipline.  It is the absolute apex of rudeness to subject everyone else to their uncontrolled running, screaming, squawking brats. 

We were early for lunch at one place, and it was darn near empty, but the hostess led us across the big empty room, and tried to seat us next to the family with three small kids.  I told the girl to keep us away from the kids. I quickly stated that we don’t have kids and we don’t want to be anywhere near the little squawkers.  The hostess quickly placed us on the opposite side of the room.  

Another time was at a crowded “Aussie-themed” steakhouse.  The only spot open was near the kitchen in the back, in a booth next to a preppie-looking young family with two small children.  I was seated with my back to them, and my husband was across the table from me, facing them. The younger of the kids was cranky and inconsolable.  The young parents tried all sorts of tricks and distractions but couldn’t seem to get a handle on the brat.  The kid started bawling… loud… and my nerves were about to be shot.  I put my hands together and shut my eyes in silent prayer… “Creator, please send Love & Light to this kid to remind him where he came from!”  I focused on the visualization of a beam of light from the heart of God hitting this kid.  The kid was quiet before I opened my eyes.  My husband was shocked at how abruptly he quieted down.  Around the time we were served our salads, we started hearing noise from the kid again… he was singing.  Based on what we were hearing, the older kid’s mood seemed elevated as well, because he pointed at the various kitschy decorations on the walls and discussed it with his parents.  They were pretty peaceful after that.

I decided to try to elevate the mood for the whole restaurant, which felt stressed and erratic.  The staff seemed hurried and distracted.  Again, with my hands together, “Okay, Creator, let’s try this again!  Let’s bring in Love & Light for everyone here and fill the whole place up! Let everyone feel it!”  The restaurant didn’t get much quieter, but the staff seemed a bit more relaxed and focused, so I considered that worthwhile and gave thanks. 

You can either let the people surrounding you to determine the quality of your experiences, or you can simply shift things to your own liking.  This can be applied anywhere.  The more negative the place and people, the more you may have to work at it, but it is worthwhile to keep at it for the sake of your own comfort level. 

Years ago, I worked at a family-owned printing company.  The owners were, and still are, genuine jerks; control-based as the day is long.  The owner was a philanderer, so his wife posted her shrewish mother at a small desk in his office to keep tabs on him.  These people profited from brokering the employee health insurance, and did all sorts of other shady things.  The sales staff completely turned over about 6 times during the 3 years I was there, and the production and press departments were only slightly better.  It was there that I finally got experience on the right computer graphics programs to get my own career back on track.  To make it tolerable for myself, I did Ceremony on the place to anchor Divine Love & Light to it, and I updated it every so often.  After I left, I released that vibe and the place went into upheaval and lost a number of accounts that I had handled.  The owners tried to replace me with people who had very little experience.  I get occasional reports from my two friends that remained there, and boy do they miss me. 

I guess if it really mattered to me I could block the negativity into the place using Divine Metallic Gold Light, and make the owners stew in their own juice, but that would make things tougher for my friends. 

Don’t tell me you can’t control your environment.

They’re Down to Raiding Pensions Now!

The date is 5-17-2011.  Silver is at $34.42 and is expected to stay down through next week. More about that later.
Holy crap!  I told you so!  NOW they’re talking about it!
Social Security is officially toast and they’re about to raid federal pensions… soon to follow: 401Ks and IRAs… and they are talking about that as well.
http://www.zerohedge.com/article/ss-trust-fund-we-lost-11-trillion-last-year
 
http://www.washingtonpost.com/business/economy/treasury-to-tap-pensions-to-help-fund-government/2011/05/15/AF2fqK4G_story.html?wpisrc=nl_wonk
 
Timothy Geithner made the statement to the news outlets Monday and I practically went into shock. Right now, there is over $4 trillion parked at the Federal Reserve, doing nothing. A lot of it has been paid back from the TARP bailout, some is excess reserves being stored there by banks to collect interest, and $1.5 trillion is just sitting unused in their vault.  The U.S. taxpayer gave it to the banks and they’ve profited from it, now it is sitting there. There is no reason whatsoever for going after either public or private citizens’ pension savings and disability funds that people have paid into throughout their working lives.  Of course, Geithner says he’ll put an IOU in the place of your pension fund, and that the law says he’ll have to pay it back… yeah, right! If you believe these kleptocrats, then leave your money in the bankers’ hands.  If you have some common sense, you will beat them to it and buy silver and gold to preserve your wealth.
When they start talking about borrowing from your savings and nationalizing retirement accounts, you MUST beat them to it. If you want to keep your retirement savings, get your money out of the system while you can! Pay the 10% tax and silly little fees. If your pension or 401K fund tries to charge you an additional 10% to write you a check, like they did my husband, then have them roll it over to an IRA at your bank, after that you can pay the 10% income tax and get it away from your bank.
Every regime in melt-down mode does this… they grab and suck everything dry on the way down, then the rats leave the sinking ship before the masses can catch them and hang them from lampposts. Chile did it, Argentina did it, and Paraguay did it.  This monetizing of public assets and raiding of pension funds is the greatest theft in the world’s history. The banksters are emboldened by the fact that they’ve gotten away with so much so far!  Right now, their fake derivatives debt is some $2.4 quadrillion spread across the world, when the world’s GDP is only like $60 trillion. No aspect of this situation makes sense.  We must stop it!  The only way to do so is to beat the government to your retirement funds! We must stop subsidizing these bankers who are stealing from us!
On top of that, the U.S. is now in two more theatres of war: Libya and Syria, and getting ready to cook up an excuse (read: staged terror event) to go to war on Pakistan. That brings us to 5 wars, plus their intent to go after Iran as well. Every time an empire is going downhill, they extend their reach and plunder as many outlying territories as they can until the money just plain old runs out and the whole thing finally collapses.  The Roman Empire did this, so did the English, the French, the Nazis, the Soviets and now… the U.S. empire. This is getting increasingly ugly.
 Now there is a law before Congress to hand permanent, world-wide war-making powers to the president – including the ability to make war within the United States:
http://www.washingtonsblog.com/2011/05/congress-proposes-bill-to-allow.html
This ought to send a chill up your spine. Giving an idiot like Obama the power to declare anyone anywhere an enemy of the state and make war on them is… well… idiotic. This is total lock-down… removing our civil liberties.
