An Unprecedented Plague Has Hit Oranges And Another Has Hit Bananas

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

What is causing all of these plagues to hit our food supply? Have you heard of citrus greening disease? Probably not, but it has already gotten so bad that it is being projected that Florida’s orange harvest will be the smallest in 30 years. Have you heard of TR4? Probably not, but it has become such a nightmare that some analysts believe that it could eventually wipe out the entire global supply of the type of bananas that Americans eat. In addition, another major plague is killing millions of our pigs, and a crippling drought that never seems to end is absolutely devastating agricultural production in the state of California. Are we just having bad luck, or is there something else to all of this?

2014 Is Turning Out To Be Eerily Similar To 2007

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

The similarities between 2007 and 2014 continue to pile up. As you are about to see, U.S. home sales fell dramatically throughout 2007 even as the mainstream media, our politicians and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke promised us that everything was going to be just fine and that we definitely were not going to experience a recession. Of course we remember precisely what followed. It was the worst economic crisis since the days of the Great Depression.

And you know what they say - if we do not learn from history we are doomed to repeat it. Just like seven years ago, the stock market has soared to all-time high after all-time high. Just like seven years ago, the authorities are telling us that there is nothing to worry about. 

Unfortunately, just like seven years ago, a housing bubble is imploding and another great economic crisis is rapidly approaching.

Second Amendment Victory: Georgia Governor Signs Historic Gun Rights Bill

Lily Dane
Activist Post

Georgia Governor Nathan Deal signed into law today what supporters call a historic victory for the Second Amendment.

The new law, called the “Safe Carry Protection Act”, vastly expands where guns will be allowed in the state.

As of July 1st, licensed gun owners in Georgia and visitors from 28 other states will be allowed to bring a gun into a bar without restrictions and carry a firearm into some government buildings. Under the law, school districts will be able to decide whether they want some employees to carry a firearm, and religious leaders can decide whether to allow licensed gun owners to carry guns into their church, synagogue or mosque.

'Watch_Dogs' Game, Chicago: Hack People's Lives, Cameras Are Your Friend

"What will you do...with that kind of power?"

There are no words to describe a personal reaction to this extended video game preview for Watch_Dogs, available on multiple systems, May 27th, by Ubisoft. Video games, for years now, have been a great covert way to train young ones into military jobs like drone operation or crime units hunting for "domestic terrorists." But now everyone gets a chance to be a paranoid, trenchcoat-mask-wearing hacker vigilante - there's something hiding in everyone...Security cameras are your friends...

Pre-Crime Systems Now Actively Monitoring the Internet

"The Computer Algorithm Learns the Pattern and Produces a Prediction"

Mac Slavo
Activist Post

With revelations that the National Security Agency has collected some 20 trillion phone calls and emails via an expansive nationwide surveillance network, most Americans have already come to the realization that everything they do is being monitored.

But many shrug off Big Brother’s prying eyes by suggesting that, since they aren’t doing anything wrong, they have nothing to worry about.

That may have been true several years ago, but the digital surveillance systems of today are far more advanced than most people understand. No longer are these machines simply recording the data and storing them in some historical archive to be pulled at a later date should the government ever have reason to take a closer look at your personal life.

The next generation of systems are being used to actively monitor your digital interactions, surfing habits, conversations and daily sentiment in an effort to predict your future behavior. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the systems currently operating within the social media sphere.

West Blames Assad For Chemical Weapons Attack, Again

Brandon Turbeville
Activist Post

In what is now the latest of chemical weapons attacks to have taken place inside Syria and blamed on the Syrian government by the Western media, the recent chlorine-based gas attack in Kfar Zeita has prompted the Anglo-European propaganda machine to once again begin greasing up its gears to accuse Bashar al-Assad of crimes against humanity and justify some form of humanitarian intervention in Syria by NATO forces.

The attacks come shortly before the completion of the transfer and destruction of Syria’s chemical weapons stockpile.

Predictably, the recent attacks are being promoted by Western outlets as an example of how a chemical weapons free Syria is still capable of deploying chemical weapons against civilians due to a loophole allowing for the production of chlorine gas.

Top Climate Researcher Urges Nuclear Power to Thwart Geoengineering

Geoengineering vs. nuclear power is like watching two grim reapers playing chess.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to write off geoengineering as conspiracy. We already have numerous White Papers from think tanks, official documents admitting to climate control plans, and many public admissions from scientists and politicians alike.

This week geoengineering has been launched further into the mainstream. First we saw Riley Duren, a Chief Systems Engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs, caution against rogue geoengineers and mad scientists using climate control as a potential weapon. Curiously this is the exact same concern that was expressed by geoengineering's leading proponent, Harvard climate scientist, David Keith. Keith likened geoengineering to nuclear weapons ... and the subsequent race to acquire that technology. These concerns are centered around structuring the proper international governance to ensure that geoengineering is carried out correctly.

Ironically enough, after the parallel drawn between the power of weather modification to the power of nuclear weapons, one of the "foremost climate researchers" is also confirming the reality of geoengineering, while reinforcing the "rogue geoengineer" meme; but he is suggesting that nuclear power is the solution to the inevitable need for geoengineering.

No-Fly List Under Fire as Evidence Shows it was Used to Recruit Snitches

Activist Post

Earlier in the year a Malaysian woman became the first to successfully contest having been put on the U.S. secretive No-Fly list. In that case, Rahinah Ibrahim, a student at Stanford in 2005, was detained at San Francisco Airport while en route to Kona, Hawaii as part of a Ph.D. program in architecture and design. She was detained, interrogated, then released after two hours, but subsequently ended up on the No-Fly List . . . for 7 years.

After a lengthy battle, it was admitted that a clerical error led to her addition to the list and that, worse still, the government knew early on that it was a mistake and tried to conceal the error. Ibrahim is still battling over the legal fees in that case, which has revealed yet more potential deception on the part of the U.S. government.

It has been suspected that Ibrahim's victory would have wider ramifications, as it seemed that the "clerical mishap" was a bit too convenient amid the FBI's "mosque outreach program" involving Bay Area Muslims and Sikhs. (Source)

In fact, much like other FBI-based informant programs such as the Demographics Unit of the NYPD, the No-Fly list seems to have a component that is anything but arbitrary.

Gearing Up For War: Russia Conducts War Games On Ukraine Border As US Troops Enter Poland

Paul Lawrance
Activist Post

On Wednesday Russia conducted military exercises in its southeastern Rostov region, which borders Ukraine, a spokesman for Russia’s southern military district told Reuters.

The spokesman denied comment on any details of the exercises, but television footage shot by Reuters reportedly showed a hefty gathering of military vehicles and weaponry including jeeps, armored personnel carriers, mobile multiple rocket launchers, and mobile surface-to-air missile launchers.

At the same time US troops have set foot in Poland for military exercises that are a part of the US’s attempt to “shore up” America’s Eastern European allies in the face of Russian tampering in Ukraine.

Agenda 21: The BLM Land Grabbing Endgame

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

Why is the federal government so obsessed with grabbing more land? After all, the federal government already owns more than 40 percent of the land in 9 different U.S. states. Why are federal bureaucrats so determined to grab even more?

Well, the truth is that this all becomes much clearer once you understand that there is a very twisted philosophy behind what they are doing. It is commonly known as Agenda 21, although many names and labels are used for this particular philosophy. Basically, those that hold to this form of radical environmentalism believe that humanity is utterly destroying the planet, and therefore the goal should be to create a world where literally everything that we do is tightly monitored and controlled by control freak bureaucrats in the name of “sustainable development”. In their vision of the future, the human population will be greatly reduced and human activity will be limited to strictly regulated urban areas and travel corridors. The rest of the planet will be left to nature. To achieve this goal, a massive transfer of land from private landowners to the federal government will be necessary.

So the conflict between Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and the BLM is really just the tip of the iceberg. The reality is that the BLM has their eyes on much bigger prizes.

West Visits Newly Installed Regime in Kiev

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

The BBC reported in their article, “Ukraine crisis: Biden to meet Kiev leaders in show of support,” that:
US Vice-President Joe Biden is to meet Ukraine’s new leaders in a show of support for the pro-Western government. 
Mr Biden is due to discuss the forthcoming elections with the country’s interim prime minister and president during his visit to Kiev. 
A phone conversation between the US secretary of state and Russia’s foreign minister earlier led to both sides blaming the other over the crisis.
Biden’s visit is not the first time Western representatives have traveled to Kiev in direct support of the “Euromaidan” protests and the subsequent unelected regime that violently seized power. US Senator John McCain would literally take the stage with the ultra-right, Neo-Nazi Svoboda Party leaders as well as meet with “Fatherland Party” member and future “prime minister,” Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

The Middle Class In Canada Is Now Doing Better Than The Middle Class In America

For most of Canada's existence, it has been regarded as the weak neighbor to the north by most Americans. Well, that has changed dramatically over the past decade or so. Back in the year 2000, middle class Canadians were earning much less than middle class Americans, but since then there has been a dramatic shift. At this point, middle class Canadians are actually earning more than middle class Americans are. The Canadian economy has been booming thanks to a rapidly growing oil industry, and meanwhile the U.S. middle class has been steadily shrinking. If current trends continue, a whole bunch of other countries are going to start passing us too.

 The era of the "great U.S. middle class" is rapidly coming to a bitter end.

Bitcoin for an Efficient Open-Source Government?

Eric Blair
Activist Post

Bitcoin, the currency, remains controversial, but the possibilities of its technology as an automated public ledger is beginning to gain universal respect.  A technology that allows trading value instantly without the friction of requiring third-party trust and is impossible to counterfeit the results has many obvious uses, including government. In fact, cryptocurrency technology could actually make governments a whole lot more transparent.

While it's true that bitcoin transactions are 'anonymous' because senders and receivers are represented by long strings of numbers (wallet addresses) instead of personal data, its public ledger logs every transaction to provide ultimate transparency. Don't confuse anonymity with privacy: anonymity means 'we know what you're doing but we don't know who you are', while privacy means 'we know who you are but we don't know what you're doing'.

The U.S. government seems to be increasingly outlawing both anonymity and privacy for citizens while it simultaneously becomes more secretive. This path is truly the antithesis of a free society. Yet, this lack of transparency for government and privacy for average citizens can be reversed if the government embraced bitcoin technology.

A New Federal Crime Unit in Wake of Chicago Shootings

Chicago rides on the coattails of a created solution - a quick, crackdown on gun crime via a new special federal unit to deal with violence after this past Easter weekend's shooting spree which injured at least 35 people and killed 9, including children as young as 11 years old.

This is not an in-depth analysis of information of the new measure - perhaps you, the reader will catch more than meets the eye? A few important points arise upon the news:

Oklahoma House Votes to Legalize Gold and Silver as Money

Activist Post

Late last week, a bill to legalize gold and silver as legal tender was passed through the Oklahoma state house. The vote was 74-12.

Senate Bill 862 (SB862), was introduced by Sen. Clark Jolley and Rep. Gary Banz, with cosponsorship from Sen. Natham Dahm. It reads, in part:
Gold and silver coins issued by the United States government are legal tender in the State of Oklahoma. No person may compel another person to tender or accept gold or silver coins that are issued by the United States government, except as agreed upon by contract.
The bill also provides a state-level tax exemption to Oklahoma residents exchanging their precious metals for another medium of exchange:

Man’s House Gets Broken Into, Cop Responds and Shoots Family Dog

A Texas man called police to report that his home had been burglarized. The responding deputy arrived and promptly shot the man’s dog.

Last Friday morning, Cole Middleton arrived home around 11 to find that his home had been broken into. His guns and iPad were stolen, along with his wife’s jewelry. He called 911.

Middleton, a farmer and cattle rancher, decided to help his grandfather harvest silage during the 2.5 hour wait for the police to arrive.

When Rains County Deputy Jerred Dooley finally showed up, Middleton and his father were working in a nearby field. The family’s three-year-old Blue Heeler dog, Candy, ran to see who arrived on their property, like dogs typically do.

Middleton told KLTV what happened next:

18 Scientifically Validated Reasons to End Public Water Fluoridation

Anna Hunt
Activist Post

Many people are coming to realize that far from improving dental health, the fluoridation of municipal water and many store bought foods and drinks is actually detrimental to our overall health. What was once a widely accepted practice is now being scrutinized and condemned by many prominent physicians and free-thinkers, and the scientific evidence to support these condemnations is mounting.

Recently a Harvard medical study claimed that ingesting fluoride leads to a loss of IQ in young children, which is remarkably frightening by itself.

Now, another study has been published, taking a thorough look at the pros and cons of ingesting fluoride. Conducted by Stephen Peckham and Niyi Awofeso, and published in The Scientific World Journal, this new research paper begins with the following important introduction, which calls for an end to public water fluoridation:
