Why Is Wal-Mart Preparing For A Major Earthquake On The New Madrid Fault?

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

Buried in a Wall Street Journal article from about a week ago was a startling piece of information. According to a Wal-Mart executive, Wal-Mart “participated in an exercise to prepare for an earthquake on the New Madrid fault line” earlier this summer.

And officials at the U.S. Geological Survey have just released a report which indicates that they believe that the New Madrid fault zone has the "potential for larger and more powerful quakes than previously thought".

So should we be concerned?  Do they know something that we don’t?

More evidence has been entered into the files of public record that terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda, ISIS, and the al-Nusra Front are completely controlled by the CIA and other Western intelligence agencies.

In fact, according to Nabil Na’eem, founding member of the Islamic Democratic Jihad Party and a former commander of al-Qaeda, all current al-Qaeda affiliates are nothing more than offshoots of an overarching CIA terror operation. He also claimed that these groups will eventually be turned against Saudi Arabia, despite the fact that Saudi Arabia has acted as a bankroller and facilitator for them for years on end.

Horrible Whodunit: Vandals Destroy Tens of Thousands of Bees

Bees are becoming as precious as lost water in the drought-stricken Western states. When millions of them die, it might be referred to as a bee 'holocaust.' Urban beekeeping has been shown to be safer for bees as it keeps them from agricultural plumes. It's no wonder then that the people who keep hives in their off time are praised as heroes. Even the government is willing to pay people in some states to raise them.

So imagine the horror of beekeeper Stephen Mantell when he went into his back yard this weekend to find his hives strewn about and wrecked. Natural or animal causes didn't add up - he found footprints on the hive boxes that contained the living cargo.

Who would have the motive to do such a thing? With or without meaning to, even the newscasters can't help but hint at whom the perpetrators might be.

The Ten Plagues That Are Hitting America Right Now

Why are so many plagues hitting the United States all of a sudden? Yes, one can always point out bad stuff that is happening somewhere in the country, but right now we are facing a nightmarish combination of crippling drought, devastating wildfires, disastrous viruses, dying crops and superbugs that scientists don’t know how to kill.

And as you will see, we even have a plague of flies down in Mississippi.  So what in the world is going on?  Is this just a case of bad luck, or is something else happening?  At the conclusion of this article, please feel free to tell me what you think.

The following are ten plagues that are hitting America right now…

Monsanto/FDA: 2 crime families, trillion-dollar hustle

“The propagandists who actually decide the content of mainstream news have done a bang-up job on Monsanto. They’ve made it seem that the science for and against GMO crops is a swamp of uncertainty no one can decipher. Therefore, leave it alone. Don’t step into it. This omits one stunning circumstance: exactly how GMO crops were permitted into the US food supply in the first place.” (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Perhaps you remember the Just-Label-It campaign. A number of activist groups petitioned the FDA for a federal regulation that would make labeling GMO food mandatory all across America.

The petition amassed over a million signatures. But the FDA decided only 394 of these were legitimate, because all the others were electronically submitted in one document.

Infuriating? Of course. But that was nothing.

Michigan Dept of Agri Forces Farmer to Dump 248 Gallons of Organic Milk and Break 1200 Free Range Eggs

While Americans in the nearby city of Detroit face life in third world conditions, unable to even afford running water, the state of Michigan decided to direct its resources towards cracking down on a small food co-op in Standish for having the utter audacity to provide milk, butter, cream and eggs to people who bought shares in the organic dairy.

The Michigan Department of Agriculture must be so proud of their deeds, after they forced Joe and Brenda Golimbieski, the owners of  Hill High Dairy and Jenny Samuelson, the owner of My Family Co-op, to dump out 248 gallons of milk, to break 100 dozen eggs, and to destroy an undisclosed amount of fresh cream, butter and cheese.

US Appeals to "Law of the Jungle" in MH17 Case

Tony Cartalucci
Activist Post

After the Russian Federation disclosed to the world satellite imagery, radar information, and abnormalities in Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 flight MH17's flight path, it asked Ukraine and the Western nations backing the regime in Kiev, questions regarding their alleged evidence. To these questions, the West has responded with increasingly suspicious silence and evasion.

At one point, US State Department Deputy Spokesperson Marie Harf, told journalists that the summation of US evidence was "YouTube" videos and other forms of social media - all of which are admittedly unverifiable and some of which is veritably fabricated.

Oregon Votes to Legalize Recreational Marijuana This November

The New Approach Oregon marijuana legalization initiative has qualified for the November ballot, the secretary of state's office reported today.

It won't get a measure number until next month.

First word came in an email from New Approach Oregon's Anthony Johnson. When the Chronicle contacted Johnson to confirm the email, he said "I got the call from the secretary of state's office today."

The initiative had needed some 87,000 valid voter signatures to qualify; it handed in about 145,000 a couple of weeks ago.

Israeli Professor: Rape Palestinian Sisters and Mothers To Stop Terrorism

As bombs rain down upon Gaza and Israeli troops march forward with tanks and bulldozers, a recent radio interview conducted on Israeli radio is drawing some criticism from across the world as well as in Israel.

Although the interview was conducted nearly three weeks ago, shortly after the bodies of three Israeli teens were found after being kidnapped and murdered, Dr. Mordechai Kedar stated that the only way to force “terrorists” to think twice about their actions is the threat of the rape of their sisters and mothers.

Brazil's GM Soy Tied Up Over Trade Dispute With Monsanto

Heather Callaghan
Activist Post

Brazil is the world's number one exporter of soy. It is Monsanto's biggest market after the United States. The USDA expects Brazil to break records next year with 91 million tons of soybean production, but has said the U.S. could replace Brazil as the world's top soybean exporter.

Could that have anything to do with a current trade dispute?

Monsanto wants commodity trading companies to make sure farmers pay up. Royalty fees, that is.

There's just one problem...

The trading firms don't want to get involved.

Where are Kiev's Air Traffic Control Recordings? Who's Withholding Evidence?

Paul Joseph Watson

As the West claims the resisting force in Eastern Ukraine are compromising evidence at MH17 crash scene, Kiev refuses to release air traffic control recordings. Ukrainian security services confiscated the tapes immediately after the incident. What do they have to hide if their version of events is true?



The TRUTH about China’s Massive Gold Hoard

Jeff Clark, Senior Precious Metals Analyst
Casey Research

I don’t want to say that mainstream analysts are stupid when it comes to China’s gold habits, but I did look up how to say that word in Chinese…

One report claims, for example, that gold demand in China is down because the yuan has fallen and made the metal more expensive in the country. Sounds reasonable, and it has a grain of truth to it. But as you’ll see below, it completely misses the bigger picture, because it overlooks a major development with how the country now imports precious metals.

I’ve seen so many misleading headlines over the last couple months that I thought it time to correct some of the misconceptions. I’ll let you decide if mainstream North American analysts are stupid or not.

Japan Changes Constitution to Join Global Drone Arms Race

Update on the global drone arms race.

U.S. drone arrives at Japanese air base

Activist Post

It has been predicted that the development of drone surveillance by the U.S. would spark a global race to develop new drone capabilities, leading to a potentially dystopian future of drone wars where combat and even assassinations can be performed by fleets of insect-like microbots. The Washington Post reported in July, 2011:
More than 50 countries have purchased surveillance drones, and many have started in-country development programs for armed versions because no nation is exporting weaponized drones beyond a handful of sales between the United States and its closest allies. (Source)
The number of countries possessing surveillance drones has now risen toward 90, plus the United Nations itself has launched its own fleet. Armed drones are also proliferating rapidly with at least 20 countries believed to have unmanned weaponized vehicles. Japan is the latest to go full-steam ahead in an effort to keep up - so much so that they actually have rewritten their constitution to ensure more militaristic endeavors.

Defense Report Sees Environmental Warfare, Corporate Armies and Robot Takeover

Daniel Taylor
Activist Post

In 2006, the United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense published the DCDC Strategic Trends 2007-2036 report, outlining possible scenarios for technology, society and world politics. Among other issues, the 2006 report accurately envisioned a “revolutionary middle class” that would revolt against economic hardship and burdens of debt.

An updated version of the report was published on June 30, 2014. Titled "Global Strategic Trends out to 2045", the report outlines a future in which globalization limits countries “freedom of action”, alternative currencies challenge the establishment, environmental warfare and viruses delivered via insect-machine hybrids.

New World Disorder: Emerging Division Between East And West Threatens To Plunge The Globe Into Chaos

Michael Snyder
Activist Post

In general, over the last several decades the world has experienced an unprecedented era of peace and prosperity. The opening up of relations with China and the "end of the Cold War" resulted in an extended period of cooperation between East and West that was truly unique in the annals of history. But now things are shifting.

The civil war in Ukraine and the crash of MH17 have created an enormous amount of tension between the United States and Russia, and many analysts believe that relations between the two superpowers are now even worse than they were during the end of the Cold War era. In addition, the indictment of five PLA officers for cyber espionage and sharp disagreements over China's territorial claims in the South China Sea (among other issues) have caused U.S. relations with China to dip to their lowest point since at least 1989.

So could the emerging division between the East and the West ultimately plunge us into a period of global chaos? And what would that mean for the world economy?

Russian Institute for Strategic Studies: NATO Is Attempting to “Revolutionize The Current World Order”

Daniel Taylor
Activist Post

The tense situation between Ukraine and the United States is outlined in a paper released earlier this month by the Russian Institute for Strategic Studies (RISS). A week prior to the downing of Malaysian flight 17, the institute warned that the West “refuses to adhere to the principles and norms of international law and the rules and spirit of the existing system of international relations.”

Much like the United States Army War College Strategic Studies Institute, RISS provides “…information support to the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation, the Federation Council, the State Duma and the Security Council as well as to Government offices, ministries and departments”.

The July 9th paper warns that the United States and NATO are attempting to create a “new world order” out of the Ukrainian situation that will impose totalitarian global laws and regulations. The basis of this system, warns RISS, will be a “single system to issue money”. The authors state that because this system will meet resistance, the threat of war needs to be maintained.

Pesticide Exposure Linked to Autism Spectrum Disorder

Heather Callaghan
Activist Post

Based on the sheer amount of research studies available dating back to the 1950s on the association between industrial chemicals and neurobehavioral disorders - it makes sense that more recent studies are finally starting to emphasize the chemical/neurodevelopmental disorder connection. That is, additional links to keynotes seen in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and ADHD symptomology.

Many agricultural pesticides are, after all, neurotoxic - that's how they work on eradicating the intended pest. While regulatory and corporate entities continue to espouse their safety, and while farmers are encouraged to wear protective gear - how are levels of chemical plume to be regulated for individuals who live right near application sites? What about the effects on the developing fetus?

UC Davis researchers in tandem with MIND Institute found a connection between pregnant women living in close proximity of California pesticide applications and later diagnoses of ASD and other developmental delays.

The Mainstream Media’s Blind Spot in Gaza

Aaron Dykes and Melissa Melton
Activist Post

Someone recently asked, “If my neighbor next door shoots my neighbor across the street, does that give my neighbor across the street the right to come shoot me?”

If someone’s corrupt government does something horrible, are all of its citizens, right down to the infants, to be held responsible? Votes seem to matter very little in the modern world. How would you feel if another country invaded and tried to kill you and everyone you know — all because of what your horrible government does?
