New World Order Protest Rallies - Globally // July 4 (with video) :

Bronte Baxter:

A historic event will take place across the globe this 4th of July, called “Independence Day” in the United States. It will happen in London at the House of Parliament; in the U.S. outside the White House; on both sides of the Canadian-American border near Champaign, New York; in Berlin, Germany; and in a growing number of other cities and locations across the world.
It is a global gathering for freedom, a New World Order Protest Rally, the first time Truthers of all persuasions are joining together to tell the global elite that their infractions against humanity will no longer be tolerated. This is a seed event, possibly a trigger event, in the saga of mankind.
Massive social/political change always begins with the people talking among themselves. Information is quietly spread, and public sentiment grows. Then sentiment builds to resolve and breaks out into action. At first, one singular but dramatic action, like a burgeoning seed poking its head through the darkness
of earth into the daylight. That first significant act either is, or activates, the spark that ignites the conflagration.
We have been waiting for someone to light a match, and a woman named Izzy Smart has struck and tossed one. A humble Brit with a passion for freedom, she created a website, Visionary Peace, along with a stirring you-tube video calling for world-wide rallies July 4th.
Truthers are responding with you-tube videos of their own and a large Internet viral sharing of the call to protest next Friday. Illuminati News, the David Icke website, and other online sites dedicated to uncovering the conspiracy have also announced the demonstrations.
This event may be to the Truth Movement what Rosa Parks’ refusal to move to the back of the bus was to the Civil Rights Movement. We need to make ourselves part of it. If you and I don’t rise to the call now, then when? After still more restrictions on freedom tie both hands behind our backs?
It’s time to make a showing, to boldly stand up to the global elite, the swindlers and liars who control our governments, our economy, our military, our health care systems, our corporations, or media, our education systems, our spiritual systems, the U.N. and everything else that has power over us. They are the puppet masters. They stand on the top of the human pyramid, and when enough of us who support that pyramid remove ourselves, the pyramid must fall.
On July 4, we take action together. We mustn’t let the few stand up while the rest of us cower in the shadows. We boldly attend these gatherings, with tee-shirts, protest signs, megaphones, and camcorders in tow. We march and we slogan-chant. Hats and sunglasses are useful in muting identity for those concerned about revealing theirs, but mask wearing is not appropriate - that would make our movement scary to the public. Masks call up mental images of terrorists.
The protests must be peaceful, without violence. Izzy reminds of us this on a follow-up video where she shows her face and gives rally details. If the few become violent, they will destroy our good name in the court of public opinion. This is what happened in the WTO rallies, causing world opinion to side with the WTO.
Ours is not a revolution of blood but of consciousness. We are consciously taking back our power as sovereign individuals, sovereign communities and sovereign nations. We are saying no to all the atrocities, and when we cease to support them with our obedience, they will fall apart. The global rallies are our first collective act of independence.
We must not think with discouragement that protests are ineffective. By themselves, they are not enough, but this is just our first step. Strong protests July 4 will bring our cause to the public awareness, prompting people to google “New World Order” who never heard of it before, or who never took “conspiracy theorists” seriously.
It isn’t paranoia if it’s true, and conspiracy isn’t a theory. This, and our refusal to accept the New World Order, are the messages we must send to the world and those who control it on this Independence Day.
I remember the movie “Independence Day,” the wonderful scene where President Whitmore tells the little band of people right before their bold July 4th initiative, “We will NOT vanish quietly into the night!” His speech is a fitting end to this article, and I conclude with it:
“Good morning. In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world. And you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. ‘Mankind.’ That word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can’t be consumed by our petty differences anymore. We will be united in our common interests. Perhaps it’s fate that today is the Fourth of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom… Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution… but from annihilation. We are fighting for our right to live. To exist. And should we win the day, the Fourth of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day the world declared in one voice: ‘We will NOT go quietly into the night! We WILL not vanish without a fight! We’re going to live on! We’re going to survive! Today we celebrate our Independence Day!’”

Note to readers: There have been some technical troubles trying to leave comments at the Visionary Truth website’s homepage comment section. Try it, but if it doesn’t work, you can successfully leave comments on the Izzy video page by scrolling down and leaving a “text comment” in the the lower left-hand column. Izzy has been communicating with people there and checks in every few hours.
In two days, I will publish some protest slogans on this site that could be used on signs and/or tee-shirts. There’ll also be some chant slogans, that people might chant as a group at these events. Chants and thought-provoking signs draw media (and viewer) attention. They make a protest look serious.
If you can’t make it to one of the rallies, or live in a country where a rally is not yet planned, think about doing something in your own nation or city.  For thoughts and suggestions on that, check out the comment section below.

4th July - NEW WORLD ORDER Revolution. ........

Governmental Freedom! ...  (( freedom ....  away from government people??))

Added: February 17, 2008
Please take the time to read this communication.

On 4th July 2008 - A peaceful non-violent demonstration will take place in cities around the world to expose the fraud, corruption and lies at the heart of our governments. It is an opportunity to express your right to free independent thought and to begin the fight to reclaim your liberties and freedoms. On the streets of London, on the sidewalks of Washington D.C, in the heart of Athens and in every other political Capital across the world, demonstrations will take place to demand a return of proper representative government. This may represent a final opportunity for the citizens of the world to stand together to demand the independent free world we all want to live in -- WE the people of the world will be heard on this day 04th JULY 2008.

We encourage all citizens of the world to embark on a journey of discovery now. Through independent research you can gain an understanding of what your governments are doing in your name and the kind of world they are planning for your future. This is not about a far distant country or peoples you do not know, this is about your country, your local community, your family, your friends. It will affect all our futures and concerns all the good people of our world.

It may prove difficult to grasp, given the constant barrage of propaganda from media institutions, but YOUR government is systematically removing YOUR liberties, YOUR freedoms and YOUR very right to exist as a free thinking individual. In many countries the aim of totalitarian dictatorship has already been achieved and understand this, history teaches sound lessons to us all concerning the consequences of allowing dangerous people to take control and 'change' our 'view' of the world around us.

We at visionary-peace are promoting the 4th of July as a day of independent free thought, through peaceful protest. It represents something we can all relate to and represents why we must all stand up and shout for our freedom. The time for media diversion and lies is over. The time for demonstration is NOW. We must raise public awareness to the dangers ahead. The actions of the global elites must not be ignored by good people any longer. These thieves and liars must fail to achieve their ultimate objective now. WE are all fighting for our right to exist now, whether we realise it or not.

The plans of the New World Order are cloaked behind the veil of economic crisis, terrorism, globalisation and corporate partnership. Our governments have been effectively 'taken-over'. Believe me, your elected representatives are not who they appear to be. Investigate their 'backgrounds' for yourself. Look for the family/historic/organisational connections and understand this - your democracy has been usurped by very undemocratic organisations. These people have an agenda which ultimately aims to achieve TOTAL CONTROL over the life of every individual.

'Imagine the future as a size twelve boot stamping on the face of humanity for eternity', because this is the future the global elite are embarking upon. It will mean the end of your freedom, the end of your liberty, the end of your choice, the end of your individuality. ONLY through protest and civil disobedience can these planned changes to our way of life be halted -- Only the citizens of the world, united as ONE can stop the illegal and fraudulent conduct of our governments. TOGETHER we can put a stop to the monstrous totalitarian future our 'elected' representatives have planned for us.

DO YOU really want enslavement for your future? We invite every citizen of the world to seek out the truth -- please raise your awareness of the issues....and be prepared -- the coming years will bring the fight for freedom to you, into your neighbourhood, into your workplace and into your home.

“According to white papers now being circulated in the cable, telephone and telecommunications industries, those with the deepest pockets -- corporations, special-interest groups and major advertisers -- would get preferred treatment.” You’re kidding? Not.

And “content from these providers would have first priority on our computer and television screens, while information seen as undesirable, such as peer-to-peer communications, could be relegated to a slow lane or simply shut out.” Now that’s progress! Or is it another fall back into the rabbit hole of fascism?

Of course, Homeland Security agents, we’re told, would be joined with local police in order to get their hands on domestic terrorists who use the Internet as a political tool. Jesus, Paul, is that us? Is that Prison Planet, Online Journal, Counterpunch, Global Research, 911Truth.Org, name it, anyone not parroting establishment blather?

I mean, would the Washington Post line us up with terrorists, like Joe McCarthy of old lined up whomever he damn pleased as “fellow travelers with the reds” and railroad us all into nowhere land? They take a finger one day, a hand the second, a soul the third, and a lot of bodies the next day, to Gitmo, Uzbekistan, India, the moon. Will Internet 1 be full of holes from the disappeared Alex Jones, Jeff Rense, Bev Conover, good night?

And, as Craig Whitlock (who will survive the purge?) reports about the Power of Truth, a film made by Zawahiri and other Al Qaeda leaders, with a run-on narrative dissing the US government in its treatment of Muslims, is actually “using video excerpts of US leaders and commentators to bolster their argument,” the nerve . . .

About this film, we get this critique from Jarret Brachman, research director at the Combating Terrorism Center at the US Military Academy at West Point, NY: “It’s beautifully crafted propaganda, and it’s a huge problem for us . . . You’re left shaking your head saying, ‘Yeah, I guess they’re right.'”

“I guess they’re right,” what? Oh ye of feint heart, call up Hollywood, we invented movies. Where’s Frances Ford Coppola, Mr. Godfather; Stephen Spielberg, from ET to Shindler’s List to Sergeant Ryan; where are all the big guns that put our culture on the widescreen reality map? Does a West Point terror hunter fold like that?

Well, you know what, here’s a movie you should look at, what really happened, about 9/11 and how the War on Terror started. And this movie could only have been made on the Internet, because it’s fearless, bold, and tells the truth like you won’t see it in any movie theater. It will explain to you how all this terror was invented.

It will help you realize how 9/11 was used to create a coup d’etat by the Powers That Be -- and why they are so afraid of the Internet. It could provide the evidence that puts them away one day for good. But act now! Click that link. Start thinking for yourself, before Big Brother and his Propaganda Machine roll right over you, and somebody pulls the Internet 1 plug for good and sticks the Internet 2 plug somewhere in the middle of your forehead.

In fact, be prepared to defend the Internet you know, as if it were your own human memory, because it is. And anything less, like Internet 2, would be a full-fledged lobotomy!

OIL: Think About It !

The OPEC minister will look you in the eyes and state:

" We are at war with you infidels. Have been since the embargo in the 1970s. You are so arrogant you haven't even recognized it. You have more missiles, bombs, and technology; so we are fighting with the best weapon we have and extracting on a net basis about $700 billion/year out of your economy. We will destroy you! Death to the infidels! While I am here I would like to thank you for the following: Not developing your 250-300 year supply of oil shale and tarsands. We know if you did this, it would create millions of jobs for US citizens, expand your engineering capabilities, and keep the wealth in the US instead of sending it to us to finance our war against you infidels.

Thanks for limiting Defense Dept. purchases of oilsands from your neighbors to the north. We love it when you confuse your allies.

Thanks for over regulating every segment of your economy and thus delaying, by decades, the development of alternate fuel technologies.

Thanks for limiting drilling off your coasts, in Alaska , and anywhere there is a bug, bird, fish, or plant that might be inconvenienced. Better that your people suffer! Glad to see our lobbying efforts have been so effective.

Corn based Ethanol. Praise Allah for this sham program! Perhaps you will destroy yourself from the inside with theses types of policies. This is a gift from Allah, praise his name! We never would have thought of this one! This is better than when you pay your farmers NOT TO GROW FOOD. Have them use more energy to create less energy, and simultaneously drive food prices through the roof.
Thank you US Congress!!!!

And finally, we appreciate you letting us fleece you without end. You will be glad to know we have been accumulating shares in your banks, real estate and publicly held companies. We also finance a good portion of your debt and now manipulate your markets, currency, and economies to our benefit.

How to Heal the World

Owen Waters of "The Shift: The Revolution in Human Consciousness"

The Shift to the New Reality has been gaining speed for manyyears. We have now entered a phase of The Shift which is nowbringing rapid transformation to our world.

Heart-centered consciousness is the gateway to spiritualconsciousness. Spiritually-minded people today are transformingthe world from material consciousness into heart and soulconsciousness. This transformation is best realized by usingintention to actively fill the world with love and light. Thisspiritually-conditioned energy powerfully transforms the lowerenergy of fear and hate within the global mind atmosphere.

The energy of transformation can be channeled into a spiritualfocus, into emotional release or it can be allowed to manifestin the only remaining field of popular action, the physical
world. There, it will erupt through emotion-driven, physicalphenomena - volcanic eruption, earthquakes and violent storms,for example. All of these "natural" disasters are driven by thechaotic emotionalenergy of mankind. All of them can be healedand prevented when people channel enough spiritual energy tosoothe the chaos.

Today, it is more important than ever to send healing energiesinto the world. If enough people enter their inner, spiritualspace regularly, then the incoming energies of transformationcan be expressed on a spiritual level.

You can make all the difference in the world today when youhelp balance the incoming energies of transformation by usingthe following technique.

The Infinite Being Heal the World Technique:

Reconnect with your spiritual source daily. Use the InfiniteBeing meditation, or your own meditation technique, the firstthing every day. Make it a habit, a part of your morningroutine.

End your meditation session by spending time in gratitude forlife, nature and the Infinite Being from which youmaterialized. Let a sense of gratitude for everything in yourlife fill your heart.

Then, intend world peace and enlightenment. Send thisintention out into the world as love energy through the heartchakra just in front of your breastbone.

This alone would be enough to make a big difference in theworld today. However, by adding a third component to the technique, it becomes enormously powerful and effective.

Powerful acts of creation all have three essential components - intent, feeling and motion. Those are the only three tools which Infinite Being used to create the universe and everything within it. That's how powerful those three components are, when used together in equal balance.

So far you have set the first component,

(1) Your intention - world peace and enlightenment.

You have also set the second component,

(2) A love-inspired environment - gratitude for the universe and everything in your life.

Now, it's time for the third component,

(3) Action. It is time to move that energy, in large quantities, into the global mind atmosphere surrounding the Earth. This is how:

On every in-breath, imagine white light from the Cosmos entering your crown chakra, above the head, and traveling down your spine to the level of your heart, then traveling forward into your heart chakra, just in front of your breastbone.

At the same time, see white light from the Earth entering the base of your spine and traveling up the spine, then forward, to merge with the cosmic energy in the heart chakra.

The energies of the Cosmos and the Earth will fuse together and cause an energetic reaction at the frequency of the heart chakra. This fusion forms a ball of energetic white light in the heart chakra.

With every out-breath, send the power of this energetic reaction out to the world. Direct it as a beam of white light from your heart chakra, out into the world.

Continue this in-breath, out-breath cycle for at least five minutes each morning and you will not only help heal the world, you will change your entire day for the better.

The universe reflects who you are. When you practice healing the world, by automatic reflection, you heal who you are. Any and all issues which have been challenging for you will move closer towards resolution as you help the world in this way.

There's nothing like starting your day helping to heal the world in these critical days of transformation. It's one of those things that brightens your day, makes you feel good to be alive, and lets you know that you are taking the type of action that you came into this life to perform.

The Pope's Evil Legend -- Mohammed's Sword
In 1099, the Crusaders conquered Jerusalem and massacred its Muslim and Jewish inhabitants indiscriminately, in the name of the gentle Jesus. At that time, 400 years into the occupation of Palestine by the Muslims, Christians were still the majority in the country. Throughout this long period, no effort was made to impose Islam on them. Only after the expulsion of the Crusaders from the country, did the majority of the inhabitants start to adopt the Arabic language and the Muslim faith--and they were the forefathers of most of today's Palestinians.

* * *
THERE IS no evidence whatsoever of any attempt to impose Islam on the Jews. As is well known, under Muslim rule the Jews of Spain enjoyed a bloom the like of which the Jews did not enjoy anywhere else until almost our time. Poets like Yehuda Halevy wrote in Arabic, as did the great Maimonides. In Muslim Spain, Jews were ministers, poets, scientists. In Muslim Toledo, Christian, Jewish and Muslim scholars worked together and translated the ancient Greek philosophical and scientific texts. That was, indeed, the Golden Age. How would this have been possible, had the Prophet decreed the "spreading of the faith by the sword"?
What happened afterwards is even more telling. When the Catholics re-conquered Spain from the Muslims, they instituted a reign of religious terror. The Jews and the Muslims were presented with a cruel choice: to become Christians, to be massacred or to leave. And where did the hundreds of thousand of Jews, who refused to abandon their faith, escape? Almost all of them were received with open arms in the Muslim countries. The Sephardi ("Spanish") Jews settled all over the Muslim world, from Morocco in the west to Iraq in the east, from Bulgaria (then part of the Ottoman Empire) in the north to Sudan in the south. Nowhere were they persecuted. They knew nothing like the tortures of the Inquisition, the flames of the auto-da-fe, the pogroms, the terrible mass-expulsions that took place in almost all Christian countries, up to the Holocaust.
WHY? Because Islam expressly prohibited any persecution of the "peoples of the book". In Islamic society, a special place was reserved for Jews and Christians. They did not enjoy completely equal rights, but almost. They had to pay a special poll-tax, but were exempted from military service--a trade-off that was quite welcome to many Jews. It has been said that Muslim rulers frowned upon any attempt to convert Jews to Islam even by gentle persuasion--because it entailed the loss of taxes.
Every honest Jew who knows the history of his people cannot but feel a deep sense of gratitude to Islam, which has protected the Jews for fifty generations, while the Christian world persecuted the Jews and tried many times "by the sword" to get them to abandon their faith.
* * *
THE STORY about "spreading the faith by the sword" is an evil legend, one of the myths that grew up in Europe during the great wars against the Muslims--the reconquista of Spain by the Christians, the Crusades and the repulsion of the Turks, who almost conquered Vienna. I suspect that the German Pope, too, honestly believes in these fables. That means that the leader of the Catholic world, who is a Christian theologian in his own right, did not make the effort to study the history of other religions.
Why did he utter these words in public? And why now?
There is no escape from viewing them against the background of the new Crusade of Bush and his evangelist supporters, with his slogans of "Islamofascism" and the "Global War on Terrorism"--when "terrorism" has become a synonym for Muslims. For Bush's handlers, this is a cynical attempt to justify the domination of the world's oil resources. Not for the first time in history, a religious robe is spread to cover the nakedness of economic interests; not for the first time, a robbers' expedition becomes a Crusade.
The speech of the Pope blends into this effort. Who can foretell the dire consequences?
Uri Avnery is an Israeli writer and peace activist with Gush Shalom. He is one of the writers featured in The Other Israel: Voices of Dissent and Refusal. He is also a contributor to CounterPunch's hot new book The Politics of Anti-Semitism.

SEA OF TRASH !               SEA OF TRASH !


June 22, 2008
Off Gore Point, where tide rips collide, the rolling swells rear up and steepen into whitecaps. Quiet with concentration, Chris Pallister decelerates from 15 knots to 8, strains to peer through a windshield blurry with spray, tightens his grip on the wheel and, like a skier negotiating moguls, coaxes his home-built boat, the Opus — aptly named for a comic-strip penguin — through the chaos of waves. Our progress becomes a series of concussions punctuated by troughs of anxious calm. In this it resembles the rest of Pallister’s life.
Ted Raynor
Ocean currents funnel a relentless tide of plastic trash and other debris to the unpopulated shores of Gore Point in Alaska
A 55-year-old lawyer with a monkish haircut, glasses that look difficult to break, an allergy of the eyes that makes him squint and a private law practice in Anchorage, Pallister spends most of his time directing a nonprofit group called the Gulf of Alaska Keeper, or GoAK (pronounced GO-ay-kay). According to its mission statement, GoAK’s lofty purpose is to “protect, preserve, enhance and restore the ecological integrity, wilderness quality and productivity of Prince William Sound and the North Gulf Coast of Alaska.” In practice, the group has, since Pallister and a few like-minded buddies founded it in 2005, done little else besides clean trash from beaches. All along Alaska’s outer coast, Chris Pallister will tell you, there are shores strewn with marine debris, as man-made flotsam and jetsam is officially known. Most of that debris is plastic, and much of it crosses the Gulf of Alaska or even the Pacific Ocean to arrive there.
The tide of plastic isn’t rising only on Alaskan shores. In 2004 two oceanographers from the British Antarctic Survey completed a study of plastic dispersal in the Atlantic that spanned both hemispheres. “Remote oceanic islands,” the study showed, “may have similar levels of debris to those adjacent to heavily industrialized coasts.” Even on the shores of Spitsbergen Island in the Arctic, the survey found on average a plastic item every five meters.
Back in the 1980s, the specter of fouled beaches was a recurring collective nightmare. The Jersey Shore was awash in used syringes. New York’s garbage barge wandered the seas. On the approach to Kennedy Airport, the protagonist of “Paradise,” a late Donald Barthelme novel, looked out his airplane window and saw “a hundred miles of garbage in the water, from the air white floating scruff.” We tend to tire of new variations on the apocalypse, however, the same way we tire of celebrities and pop songs. Eventually all those syringes, no longer delivering a jolt of guilt or dread, receded from the national consciousness. Who could worry about seabirds garotted by six-pack rings when Alaska’s shores were awash in Exxon’s crude? Who could worry about turtles tangled in derelict fishing nets when the ice caps were melting and the terrorists were coming?
Then, too, for a while it seemed as if we might succeed in laying this particular ecological nightmare to rest. In the mid-1980s, New York’s sanitation department began deploying vessels called TrashCats to hoover up scruff from the waterways around the Fresh Kills landfill. Elsewhere beach-sweeping machines did the same for the sand. In 1987 the federal government ratified Marpol Annex V, an international treaty that made it illegal to throw nonbiodegradable trash — that is, plastic — overboard from ships in the waters of signatory countries. The good news for the ocean kept coming: in 1988, Congress passed the Ocean Dumping Reform Act, which forbade cities to decant their untreated sewage into the sea. In 1989 the Ocean Conservancy staged its first annual International Coastal Cleanup (I.C.C.), which has since grown into the largest such event in the world. But beautification can be deceiving. Although many American beaches — especially those that generate tourism revenues — are much cleaner these days than they used to be, the oceans, it seems, are another matter.
Not even oceanographers can tell us exactly how much floating scruff is out there; oceanographic research is simply too expensive and the ocean too varied and vast. In 2002, Nature magazine reported that during the 1990s, debris in the waters near Britain doubled; in the Southern Ocean encircling Antarctica the increase was a hundredfold. And depending on where they sample, oceanographers have found that between 60 and 95 percent of today’s marine debris is made of plastic.
Plastic gets into the ocean when people throw it from ships or leave it in the path of an incoming tide, but also when rivers carry it there, or when sewage systems and storm drains overflow. Despite the Ocean Dumping Reform Act, the U.S. still releases more than 850 billion gallons of untreated sewage and storm runoff every year, according to a 2004 E.P.A. report. Comb the Manhattan waterfront and you will find, along with the usual windrows of cups, bottles and plastic bags, what the E.P.A. calls “floatables,” those “visible buoyant or semibuoyant solids” that people flush into the waste stream like cotton swabs, condoms, tampon applicators and dental floss.(...)

Le 3 juillet 2008, dans le cadre des célébrations du 400e anniversaire de la Ville de Québec, l'armée compte parader dans les rues. Guerre à la guerre appelle à une présence antimilitariste forte durant l'évènement et on a besoin de vous pour que ça marche!


400 ans de militarisme : il faut que ça cesse !
afin de dénoncer la cérémonie du droit de cité et la parade militaire des Forces armées canadiennes!
La cérémonie du droit de cité donne la permission aux militaires du 22ième régiment d'entrer dans l'enceinte de la ville.
Cette mascarade vise à mousser la popularité de l'armée au Québec et à faire la promotion de la mission canadienne en Afghanistan, il est de notre devoir d'agir pour rappeler notre opposition à cette guerre ainsi qu’à cette célébration qui donne le droit aux soldats de circuler librement dans la ville.
La guerre livrée en Afghanistan sous le prétexte de l'aide humanitaire n'apporte pas d’amélioration significative à la situation des Afghans et Afghanes. Motivée par des intérêts stratégiques et économiques, elle ne vise qu’à étendre le contrôle des pays occidentaux sur le Moyen-Orient.

Nous exigeons le retrait du droit de cité.
Nous exigeons le retrait immédiat des troupes canadiennes d’Afghanistan
Nous exigeons la fin du recrutement et de la propagande effectuée par l’armée

Block the Empire-Montreal is an anti-authoritarian, direct-action collective opposed to war and militarization, and their roots and manifestations: colonialism, imperialism and capitalism. We seek to expose the links between capitalist globalization and patriarchy, racism and all forms of oppression, both here and abroad. Our work locally aims to disrupt and directly impact the interests of those who are actively complicit in these systems, from companies who fuel and profit from war and occupation, to the supporters and outposts of US Empire and the Canadian state. We endorse the People's Global Action (PGA) hallmarks, and we act in direct solidarity with all those on the frontlines of resistance and struggle against occupation and exploitation - from those resisting the racist "War on Terror" in the Middle East, Latin America, Africa and Asia, to the struggle for indigenous sovereignty here on Turtle Island (occupied North America).

There is no oil shortage, not yet at least. That doesn't mean we're not quickly sliding towards Peak Oil. We probably are, but that has nothing to do with today's gas prices. The reason oil has skyrocketed to nearly $140 per barrel is because of speculation; rampant, "unregulated" speculation. The peak oil doom-sayers are simply confusing the issue. This is not about shortages or scarcity; it's about gaming the system to fatten the bottom line. The whole scam is being executed with excruciating precision by the same carpetbagging scoundrels who engineered the subprime fiasco; the investment bankers. The Wall Street Goliaths are using the futures market to recapitalize their flagging balance sheets after sustaining massive losses in the mortgage-backed securities boondoggle. That's the whole thing in a nutshell. Now they're on to their next swindle; distorting the futures market with humongous leveraged bets on food and oil.
MarketWatch summed it up like this on Monday:
October 2005:
A Note from Franklin Sanders:
But how do you rebuild an economy after a collapse? Begin before it collapses. For years I have believed that the best strategy for restoring sound money & freedom is to build parallel institutions, that is, honest institutions to replace corrupt ones. For instance, if you can't stomach public education, then either home school or start your own private school. If you don't like unsound fiat money, start using gold & silver in your everyday transactions.
Lately I have been concentrating on economic renewal, which must start with local economies rebuilding themselves. Currently, corporations enter the local economy, vacuum up the cash flows, & strip out all the assets. If you live in a city you might not have noticed this. If you live in a small town, you have.
Enter Catherine Austin Fitts, to explain the "American Tapeworm." (You can read her article by that title at stories/HL0304/S00228.htm.) And she should know, since she once worked at the heart of it. According to her short biography on her website,, as the founding director of Solari she "offers a unique perspective on the global financial & political economy, including the flow of money between overt & covert sectors.(...)
FITTS I think most Americans know that something stinks, but here's the challenge. Remember the red button story?
In summer 2000 I was at the Spiritual Frontiers Foundation International, giving a speech entitled "How the Money Works in Organised Crime" about narcotics trafficking, etc. etc. The Department of Justice says that we -- Americans -- launder $500 billion to a trillion dollars a year. I asked the audience, "What would happen if America stopped being the world wide leader in global money laundering?" A hundred people (who go into the woods for three days once a year to help work on evolving our society spiritually) said that the stock market would go down & we would have trouble financing the government deficit & so our taxes would have to go up or our government checks might stop, because the $500 billion to a trillion would go to Switzerland and Singapore instead of here.
"Okay," I said, "imagine a big red button up here on the lectern. If you push this button, you can stop all hard narcotics trafficking in your neighbourhood, your city, town, county, state & your country tomorrow. Who'll push the button?" Out of 100 people dedicated to evolving our society spiritually, guess how many would push the button? One!
I asked the other 99, "Why would you not push the button?"
They said, "We don't want our mutual funds to go down, & we don't want our government checks to stop, & we don't want our taxes to go up." Right then the CIA & Department of Justice had full "democratic" authority & popular support to facilitate narcotics trafficking.

Most people don't understand there is a way to push the red button that makes you money. I call it "turning the red button green." That's what the Solari model is about. It's turning the red button green, so that we can make money pushing the button.
In my experience, Franklin, the people running the system never say, "I want to go to Rome & how do I get to Rome?" Rather, they say, "I want to go to Rome: now how can I make money going to Rome?" That is always the operative design question.
We have to ask, "How do we make money pushing the red button?" There is a way to do it, but everyone is terrified because it seems overwhelming. Nobody wants to talk about it. You don't know whom you can trust. You don't understand how the system works so you just try to protect your kids & muddle through. The day that we understand that there is way to turn the red button green, we will find that the American people have more in them than we think.
MONEYCHANGER If somebody doesn't turn the red button green, then all the money, & everything we love along with it, will be sucked out of our lives.
FITTS It's worse than that. They are not just sucking all the money out of our lives. It's one thing to be poor. It's another thing to be poor & stoned on Prozac & Ritalin.
MONEYCHANGER And riddled with the diseases that the consumer society causes.
FITTS What better way to kill someone than to make money off of them killing themselves?
MONEYCHANGER But now it seems almost impossible for that not to happen. In small towns & rural areas, Wal-Mart comes in & sucks the money out (to capitalise the local cash flow & sell it as stock), so there are no small businesses left. Small farmers can barely make a living even with government subsidies, & a big part of the rest are on welfare because of high disability rates, & on & on.
How do you start to reverse that flow? How do you hit the green button?
FITTS The flow has to be reversed globally. The pro-centralisation team is a global network. They are a "we" & they have a plan. The pro-decentralisation team is not networked globally, is not a "we," & doesn't even have a map of this world, let alone a plan.
I would submit that God is in control & anything is possible. He parts the Red Sea & can do anything He wants. The question is, when will we all get out of the middle of the road? There are two teams, the demonic & the divine. Most Americans think they can stay in the middle of the road. They can't. They are on one team or the other. It will then be a global "We", are not merely an American team "Wee are facing a global group with a global plan.
We have to win in two places. First is our neighbourhood, because the black budget finances one neighbourhood take-over at a time. Then you've got to be networked so you can deal at the top. You've got to do both. They can divide & conquer in lots of different ways. Main Street in America is divided & conquered from Main Street in Peru & so the question is, can Main Street world-wide come together & act?
MONEYCHANGER The people on Main Street are alienated from each other, isolated without sensing any need to work together. People in families are isolated from each other. How do you begin to overcome that?
FITTS For nine years every time I look at this through logic, it looks hopeless. Then through prayer God says, just do what I tell you. All these things are not your problem, they are my problem.
When real solutions come together they have the power to grow virally & turn things around. All we need to do is vote with our prayers & our money. If we will all vote with our money & our self-interest, the red button turns green. If we don't do it, it's because we choose not to do it. We have the power. They are few & we are many. They are coming out of the closet & are a lot easier to see now.
MONEYCHANGER Vote with your money? Most people don't have that much money & can't risk losing it. They believe they need a certain return on their money, they've got to have their mutual funds.
FITTS You are putting your money in Citibank now & making 2% with risk. What if there is a way to make 4% with no risk, & at the same time stop feeding your enemy? If I feed the person who is killing me, then I am going to die.
MONEYCHANGER How do you stop feeding them?
FITTS Solari Investors Circles are a cross between an investment club & a French Resistance cell. I always tell people not to worry whether there is a conspiracy because if you are not in one, you need to start one. The key to who is in your circle is whom do you trust. It is a conspiracy, & everybody knows you don't let people into a conspiracy unless you trust them.
There are four fundamental principles of a sound, healthy economy:
1. sound currency,
2. transparency of shared, i.e., public, money and privacy of individual money,
3. equity financing instead of debt. Debt equals war & equity equals peace.
4. Vote with your money. Do not feed the people who are killing you or otherwise you will die.
What does a Solari Investor Circle do? Whatever that circle wants to do. No individual Circle is legally connected to any other Circle or my company or me. The word conspiracy is from the Latin, con-spiro, & it means to breathe together, so our connection is through the Spirit.
In each category of those four principles, there are two categories of things you can do. You can do transactions that (a) lower our costs of capital or actions or transactions that (b) raise their cost of capital. Think of it like a Chinese menu: your Circle is free to do anything in your self interest, using the knowledge of how they are draining us to reverse the drain.
Why would anybody do a Circle? First & foremost, to stop the drain from his own life. Circles reverse their own lives, but by reversing their own lives they help produce the greater transformation. The problem is not that our wealth is flowing to the centralisation team, but that our wealth is shrinking. Every family on the pro-decentralisation that grows in security & well being helps finance transformation.
As people do transactions to advantage themselves & stop dealing with the Tapeworm -- we call it "coming clean" -- they learn more & more about money. Many of the drains occur because people don't understand money. I was, stunned when I started to network & research. I had spent my whole life in the money world & served with money people & I had no idea how intentionally illiterate most of us were.
In the sound money category the first model transaction we are going to use is a savings plan, your Monthly Acquisition Plan. People say they have no money & they can't afford to be an investor. Well, no one can become an investor unless he intends to. When someone understands investment & thinks of himself as an investor, even if he has no money, he starts to accumulate. We want to teach people a savings mentality.
One person might not be able to join your savings plan, but ten people each with $10 can send you $100 to invest for them every month. As they start to acquire coins, that pool of coins can be used to do a variety of things. It can be used as a reserve fund to finance debt elimination or a community currency. Imagine if every community world-wide had their own quirky community currency but all had a common store of value in silver & gold.
At the end of the Depression there were about 3,000 community currencies. Wherever I go I find tremendous interest in community currencies among people who are financially illiterate, but they have no idea how to start. How do you start to lean? You start saving & acquiring precious metals.
Transparency. The Tapeworm has total transparency into what is supposed to be our private, individual financial data, while we have non-transparency into government data. A Circle with time & inclination can calculate sources & uses of taxes, appropriations, & federal credit in their locality. They can propose bottom-up re-engineering that could create serious jobs in that neighbourhood. Suppose I walk into a local, state or federal office & say, "Look, you're paying a contractor $150 an hour to do data services related to this state & this county, & we have unemployed people here who would be delighted to do it for half price." There are laws that make it difficult for a government official to say, "No, I will continue to pay three times as much as I need for this function."
In lots of neighbourhoods where HUD is managing the single-family foreclosed properties, there is real opportunity to re-engineer that money. In many neighbourhoods the federal government was paying $55,000 for a woman & 1.8 kids to live in HUD housing with food stamps on welfare when $25,000 would teach her a job that she could do in the neighbourhood & become a taxpayer. But those things can only happen where citizens get involved in transparency.
MONEYCHANGER The goal in a Solari Investor Circle is to make that money they are now sending away to work locally. Is that the idea?


FITTS They're bringing this money back to privatise state & local assets, all the municipal assets. They haven't gotten into the water & the electric yet. You watch, they're coming after it.
MONEYCHANGER Oh, but that's just turning it over to the free market.
FITTS Whatever!
MONEYCHANGER That's the way it's sold: Won't these municipal socialist assets work better under a free market?
FITTS Okay, let's create a Solari Investor Circle & we'll buy it. We'll sell you non-voting B-shares to finance the purchase. We agree, free markets are great. Would you like to buy some non-voting shares?
MONEYCHANGER What I am saying is that privatisation is not introducing free markets.
FITTS Privatisation at below market prices is pirate-isation. (Laughter)
MONEYCHANGER Ask the people all around the globe in countries where that has already happened.
FITTS Have you ever read any of Greg Palast's work? He's an American but he worked with the BBC & documented the IMF, how they go into a country & force everybody to sell at 10 cents on the dollar. That's pirate-isation, & that's what they are planning to do here with the municipalities.
MONEYCHANGER Really then the only self defence is something like Solari in order to build a strong local economy.
FITTS We are the target of a conspiracy. It's mature & has gone on a long time. You've got to start one cell at a time creating a conspiracy that counteracts the conspiracy.
I came out of the Bush Administration saying they are going to kill us all. I was working 100 hours a week because I was in an emergency state. I was like a dog trying to find a bone. We had to come up with an investment model that would create far more wealth. In other words, these guys are basically getting the stock market to rise by driving the Popsicle Index down. [The Popsicle Index measures how safe you feel to let you child walk out of the house to buy a popsicle, i.e., the safety of your neighbourhood. It is the % of the people in a community who believe that a child can leave their home, go alone to the nearest place to buy a popsicle and come home alone safely. We have to get the Popsicle Index rising so that the stock market also rises. My dream is that all the activists come to the barricades at the World Trade Organisation meetings with signs that say, "We can generate a higher rate of return than you can." Think about the power of that.
MONEYCHANGER We have to offer people something better than what they have now. You can't beat something with nothing. You can't go to people & say this evil conspiracy is eating us up, so get your money out, lower your standard of living, & hunker down on your pile of dried beans with your forty-five in your lap waiting for the end to come. That is not a plan. (Laughter)
FITTS No, you have to say we can produce a higher return on investment than they can.
When we were doing the simulations in 1998, & when I first saw the simulations of how much wealth was created, I had a team of quantitative analysts from MIT, brilliant guys. One of them brought me the numbers & I said, "This is impossible. Do it again, this can't be right". He brought it back. What I didn't understand was when you align financial stuff with people's basic dreams & hopes, society gets smarter & smarter & smarter.
MONEYCHANGER Every kind of capital compounds. I really appreciate your giving me time for this interview.

Comment: Shameless, self promoting propaganda is alive and well. Part of the article has been removed as it was merely a reiteration of the portion printed above. It can be read at the original site. You may want to bring a sick bag.[backPid]=3D1&cHash=3D4fe85fb776
Comment: Do you think "Mr. Bush's" reference to the 'ownership society' indicates that people are owned, not that they can own? Considering the amount of debt, number of bankruptcies and homeless in the US, one might suspect the return of indentured servitude. Buying a home with a mortgage rate that you can not afford was based upon the illusion of expanding prosperity. An objective look at human history shows expansion for the illusion it is. The contactions evidenced by war, starvation, exploitation, genocide, religious divisions and pathocratic rule are always in evidence.
Comment: In 2001, Alan Greenspan, along with Bush's administration, encouraged variable rate mortgages. Whoever fell for the bait is now falling further and there is no safety net. Although the government encouraged risky financial behavior, it is not there to support the average citizen.

Comment: How in the world this can be described as a "win win situation", when it has required the utter destruction of a country's infrastructure, and the brutal murder of millions of its citizens? Only a psychopath could come to such a conclusion.
Comment: Switching to tap water would have been a good idea if tap water were really safe. Unfortunately, it is contaminated with a cocktail of toxic chemicals. The most notably among them is
fluoride, which is one of the most toxic substances on Earth and which is intentionally added to the water. So if you really care for your family and the environment, get a reverse osmosis (RO) water filter today.
Comment: Increasing the acceptance of torture is the result of an unrelenting propaganda campaign. In his article entitled:
The 'ponerization' of humanity, Joe Quinn writes:
We live in a world where murderous psychopaths in suits (for we can call them nothing else) have risen to positions of unchecked power in government and the media and are determined to subject the planet's population to a constant barrage of hate-filled, war-mongering propaganda in the hope of
'pyschopathising' every last one of us into supporting their genocidal plans.


Just Finished Reading The Article On The By Herondancer

Gospel of Consumption and now this.

These sick bas***ds are beyond belief! On one hand they try to make as much money as possible by trying to get "the herd" to consume as much as possible. Then they become horrified at how much the herd is consuming (less for them) and hatch these horrific schemes. They are all insane.

Genocide Is "Cost Efficient" For American Militaristic Control By Great hierophant

Of oil and power! I've been saying this for years but no one was listening. Now I read this POWERFUL ARTICLE and the author makes it so very clear!

I've found this article so very clear about our situation as prey for these psychopaths and their predator system of economic and world domination that I've sent it to many people plus I've put it under many headings in my electronic library!

Thanks SOTT Team for printing this article! It is VERY IMPORTANT and explains so much about the REALITY our existence!

...Henry Kissinger is Pope Benedict's 'political advisor' for the Middle East.

Now there's food for thought, yes?

And... By Niall

This is obviously a multi-pronged assault, but in terms of food, think also of Codex Alimentarius which is due to be implemented fully late next year. Think about that: a global law that states the nutrients are toxins and must therefore be regulated to levels they believe suitable!

That coupled with the blanket verbotens on smoking will leave the immune system further exposed to their designer pathogens.


Comment: A theater indeed, but with no catharsis for the audience, only confusion produced by Israel's conflicting and obscure send messages, and the media's complicity in spreading them, without real journalistic investigation. Read Transmarginal Inhibition, and you will understand.


(...)...for it’s not a case of defending or attacking Mugabe but of exposing the phony human rights message being peddled by the pirates.


Comment: The author of this piece, Amos Schocken, of the Schocken publishing dynasty, is the owner of the Israeli newspaper-of-record Haaretz. It seems incredible that someone like this should only just have come to the realisation that Israel has the characteristics of an apartheid state. The past 60 years have shown ample evidence of this already, from the massacre at Deir Yassin in 1948, to today's police and IDF support for illegal Jewish settlers, and victimisation of more or less any innocent Arab they come across. But then, life in Israel (if you're a Jew) is like life in a bubble. The victimisation doesn't happen here, it's happening 10 miles away - and for that reason, it might as well be happening 10,000 miles away. Out of sight, out of mind ...

Comment: The fact is, the process of increasing control of the population has been going on for a very long time. These days are just the final stages. Jeff Wells is probably right when he says that knowing about this process will not much alter the trajectory of increasing pathocratic control, of grand theft economics, and genocide through slow poisoning and aerial bombing. But knowledge protects, and learning to discern the lies we're told every day gives us a choice: to serve the Truth, or to put our heads in the sand. The possibility of this choice at least gives us a chance to become more human, rather than more robotic - as the Powers That Be would like us to remain.

Jeremiah Haber
Jerusalem, Israel
Jeremiah (Jerry) Haber is the nom de plume of an orthodox Jewish studies professor who divides his time between Israel and the US. The picture is not of him, but of his kind of Zionist, Judah Magnes.
Self-Criticism from an Israeli, American, and Orthodox Jewish Perspective.






Israeli jurist and former Knesset member Amnon Rubinstein recently editorialized on “national suicide” in the Jerusalem Post. Citing Israeli army Lt. Col. Ari Bar Yossef, Rubinstein offered Saddam Hussein, Yasser Arafat and the Taliban in Afghanistan as exemplars of this new construct. Hussein could have avoided overthrow by giving U.N. arms inspectors free rein to search his country. Arafat, after the failure of the Camp David peace talks, could have continued negotiating but resorted to violence. Finally, the Taliban could have given up Osama bin Laden to the U.S. but instead invited self-destruction. All this because, per Rubinstein, these leaders prefer dying to “negotiating with infidels.”

“National suicide” will soon be an incantation by neoconservative and other pro-Israeli pundits and politicians on the “bomb Iran” bandwagon. Its strategic implications are clear: We can’t trust irrational regimes because they are not deterred by threat of annihilation. Therefore, extraordinary actions — such as preemptive attack — may be not only justified but necessary. It further shifts moral responsibility to the victim. In the “national suicide” formulation, it is the martyr that chooses death, while the actual killers are merely the instrument by which the suicide — or, as the case may be, the destruction of a country — is carried out.

Yet the idea of an Arab Muslim tendency toward self-destruction is wrongheaded and dangerous.(...)

Comment: As we have said before, time and again, none of this has anything to do with security for the people, but rather security for the criminals in charge.





Another scary week with oil rising 4% in dollars and the Dow falling almost four and a half percent. As Nouriel Roubini points out, until recently it was possible for some to think that the worst of the financial crisis was past. Now few could say that.

With energy and food prices rising rapidly, average people feel the crisis in their gut. But should we be so pessimistic? Maybe a change in perspective will help us. A couple of weeks ago we quoted Ran Prieur who said that we should think of "corporate rule" when we hear the term "the economy." We should interpret "expansion" as a "contraction." So if we hear that the economy is crashing, can we think that really the rule of psychopathic corporations is crashing?


Of course a lot of people will get hurt when something so large falls, but do we really want corporate rule to continue? On the other hand, we shouldn't just passively wait for the crash to happen. As Franklin Sanders put it, the way to rebuild an economy after it crashes is to rebuild it before it crashes.

If the system that has been in place for a generation is ending, then opposite trends may characterize the next phase. If the last 25 years has seen globalization and the increasing power of multinational corporations, all of which has been dependent of cheap oil and U.S. hegemony, than maybe we will see more localization of economic life. Higher energy and transportation costs and the collapse of the unipolar world of U.S. military predominance should reinforce that trend. Who knows, maybe the trend of increasing social isolation and stress can be reversed. Again, if we are not passive and begin to build newer, more humane and localized economic and social forms perhaps we can lessen the pain of the coming crisis.

Comment: An excellent video analysis of the scope and operating principles of the Israeli lobby. Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson's commentary is particularly telling.

Added: May 31, 2007
For many years now the American foreign policy has been characterized by the strong tie between the United States and Israel. Does the United States in fact keep Israel on its feet? And how long will it continue to do so? In March 2006 the American political scientists John Mearsheimer (University of Chicago) and Steve Walt (Harvard) published the controversial article 'The Israel Lobby and US foreign policy'. In it they state that it is not, or no longer, expedient for the US to support and protect present-day Israel. The documentary sheds light on both parties involved in the discussion: those who wish to maintain the strong tie between the US and Israel, and those who were critical of it and not infrequently became 'victims' of the lobby. The question arises to what extend the pro-Israel lobby ultimately determines the military and political importance of Israel itself. Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson (Colin Powell's former chief-of-staff) explains how the lobby's influence affects the decision-making structure in the White House.

China Warns US Economy On Brink Of Collapse Over Massive Dollar Outflow

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Western Subscribers

China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange (SAFE) is warning today
that an ‘unprecedented’ inflow of money from Western Nations has
increased their foreign reserves to nearly $1.8 trillion, of which
billions cannot be explained.

This news comes at the same time that reports in the United States

“United Nations sources report that there has been a sudden rush in
requests for foreign exchange wire transfer requests from New York City
banks. The sudden demand for transferring funds abroad has resulted in a
24 to 48-hour processing delay due to the sheer volume of requests.

Foreign employees at the United Nations are transferring their money
from accounts at the United Nations Federal Credit Union (UNFCU) and
other New York City banks, both domestic and foreign-owned, and the move
has been sudden.

There has been no explanation for the sudden wire transfer activity,
although the rumor mill suggests fears of a sudden economic collapse
and/or a U.S. and Israeli military attack on Iran, which could touch off
a wider regional conflict.”

So alarmed have the Chinese become of the West’s rush to engulf the
World in Total War that President Hu Jintao has accepted Japan’s
invitation and will make a rare visit outside of his country to voice
China’s concerns directly to the Western Leaders at their scheduled G-8

As soaring oil prices continue to pummel the United States economy, and
as the ‘drumbeats for war’ become deafening, the American public is
being whipped into a war frenzy with a new warning being issued by one
of their top Senators, Joseph Lieberman, that the US ‘will be attacked
in 2009’, and by a top Pentagon official warning that ‘Israel is
increasingly likely to attack Iranian nuclear facilities this year.’

Not being understood by the American people, however, and as Iran’s
president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad had previously pointed out by stating “I
feel that oil prices are going up artificially. There is a game going on
behind it.”, our World is literally drowning in oil due to the
machinations of the US War Leaders to artificially raise the price of
this fuel to a level reflecting a total cutoff of Middle Eastern

Though the Commander of the US Navy’s Fifth Fleet, Vice-Admiral Kevin J.
Cosgriff, has stated that they ‘won’t allow’ Iran to close down the
Strait of Hormuz, the ferocity of an Iranian counterattack against the
West would be devastating, and as we can read as reported by the
Christian Science Monitor News Service:

“Iran's supreme religious leader Ayatollah Sayyed Ali Khamenei also
warned of far-reaching revenge in 2006. "The Americans should know that
if they assault Iran, their interests will be harmed anywhere in the
world that is possible," he said. "The Iranian nation will respond to
any blow with double the intensity."

Analysts say Iran has a number of tools to make good on those threats
and take pride in taking on a more powerful enemy. "This is not
something they are shying away from," says Alex Vatanka, a Middle East
security analyst at Jane's Information Group in Washington.

"They say: 'Conventional warfare is not something we can win against
theUS, but we have other assets in the toolbox,' " says Mr. Vatanka,
notingthat the IRGC commander appointed last fall has been "marketed as this
genius behind asymmetric warfare doctrine."

Any US-Iran conflict would push up oil prices, and though Iran could
disrupt shipping lanes in the Persian Gulf, its weak economy depends on
oil revenues.

But nearby US forces in Iraq, Afghanistan, and the Gulf provide a host
of targets. Iran claimed last October that it could rain down 11,000
rockets upon "the enemy" within one minute of an attack and that rate
"would continue."

Further afield, Israel is within range of Iran's Shahab-3 ballistic
missiles, and Hezbollah claims its rockets – enhanced and resupplied by
Iran since the 2006 war to an estimated 30,000 – can now hit anywhere in
the Jewish state, including its nuclear plant at Dimona.

Closer to home, Iran has honed a swarming tactic, in which small and
lightly armed speedboats come at far larger warships from different
directions. A classified Pentagon war game in 2002 simulated just such
an attack and in it the Navy lost 16 major warships, according to a
report in The New York Times last January.”

But, not just to war and fuel worries are the Americans facing either,
and as we can read:

“You. Will. Not. Be. Able. To. Get. Food. Need this be spelled out any
more plainly? It is time to consider that the stage has been set for
petroleum-induced famine.

We have "innocently" accommodated rising population with greater and
greater food production via technology and the profit motive. But now we
have run out of room to grow, as biotechnology, for example, has severe
limitations -- major ones being petroleum dependence and topsoil loss.
The biggest wild card for our existence is climate change, as we see
with floods and other extreme weather affecting our food supply.

We are headed for massive shortages of food and other essentials, mainly
brought about by the depletion of geological fossil reserves of cheap
energy and water. The situation is demonstrated regularly with easy
arithmetic based on statistical indicators from the United Nations,
Worldwatch Institute, World Resources Institute, Earth Policy Institute,
and numerous governments. Usually the full force of the message is
offset by predictions of huge rises in future human population growth
that are simple extrapolations of historical trends.

No one can say with certainty that the worst effects of today's crisis
will occur tomorrow or by any particular date. But it is irrational to
assume there will only be gradual tightening of supplies until some
solutions miraculously come to our aid. One ought to at least admit that
one year ago few people thought we'd be going in the direction we're
going in, this fast, today.

Three days is our average food supply around the modernized world, i.e.,
for cities and their supermarkets. Long-term food stocks have plummeted:
"Cereal stocks that are at their lowest level in 30 years," according
toWorldwatch institute in its most recent Vital Signs. This is exacerbated
by increasingly weirder weather, compounded by the oil price/supply
pressure on food. What can interfere with the three-day situation are
truckers on strike (as in Europe), extended/repeated power outages, and
the inability of the work force to commute to work.”

Though more Americans are listening to our warnings there doesn’t exist
evidence, yet, that they are preparing for the catastrophes lying in
wait for them. It is as if they have forgotten the most basic lessons
of everything their ancestors once taught them, the first being that all
else comes second to storing food in times of crisis.
