“What emerges is an understanding of TTIP as the political project of a transatlantic corporate and political elite which, on the unfounded promise of increased trade and job creation, will attempt to reverse social and environmental regulatory protections, redirect legal rights from citizens to corporations, and consolidate US and European global leadership in a changing world order.”
(Seattle to Brussels Network, Kim Bizzarri)
A key element of this Transatlantic Trade Agreement, but only one of hundreds of highly controversial proposals, is the move to deregulate the status currently accorded to imports of GM seeds and plants for cultivating in European soils.
A determined effort by all of us, who care about real food and real farming, will be needed to stop one of the most insidious attempts yet to end Europe’s widespread resistance to genetically modified organisms. In particular, the use of GM seeds in European agriculture, leading to genetically modified crops being grown in areas that have, up until now, successfully resisted the GM corporate invasion.
The EU has so far licenced just one GM maize variety (MON 810) to be grown within its territories, and one potato variety (Amflora) for industrial starch production. Up until now, the EU has acted according to a largely restrictive trade practice concerning GM and other controversial food products due to major public pressure, as well as under a broad EU ruling termed ‘the precautionary principle’.
All that could be about to go out the window under current negotiations between the USA and the European Commission to ratify a new trade agreement known TTIP, the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.
The objective of this ‘partnership’ is to facilitate far going corporate control of the international market place and to prize-open the mostly closed (but not locked) European door on GM crops and seeds.
While this corporate heist is being eased into place, replicas are being negotiated between Canada and the EU under the title ‘Comprehensive Economic Trade Agreement’ CETA.
And as if that wasn’t enough, a further dismantling of trade tariffs is underway via the ‘Trade In Services Agreement’ TiSA: a wide ranging further liberalization of corporate trading conditions as a direct continuation of the WTO (World Trade Organisation) GATS agreement, with its highly onerous, corporate biased ‘Codex Alimentarius’ sanitary and hygiene rulings. Indigenous seeds and medicinal herbs are particularly under attack via Codex.
What is the woman in grey signalling. Is she asking for the spray ? Was it pepper spray/ mace ? was it water ? was this a staged event ? Watch the video again…
I was taken in by the event. I believed it was real. Closer examination tells a different story. Theory: The whole event is staged. The netting is to segregate the actors from the passers-by. When the setting is suitable, the camera in position the signal is given to bring on the spray. Take 1 – Action.
What possible reason you may ask. Think about it. The ONLY way the psychopaths can control the situation is if they have an excuse to use force. They are helpless against peaceful protests. Peaceful protests gain public support at an astonishing rate. They must make them violent – hence all the proven thug/police/rent-a-mob infiltration in nearly every peaceful demonstration to date. What better way to provoke anger than to assault seemingly innocent peaceful women protesters. They had me fooled for a while.
“Whenever you see any of our signs made by a brother Mason, and especially the Grand Hailing sign of distress, you must always be sure to obey them, even at the risk of your own life. If you’re on a jury, and the defendant is a Mason, and makes the Grand Hailing sign, you must obey it; you must disagree with your brother jurors, if necessary, but you must be very sure not to bring the Mason guilty, for that would bring disgrace upon our order. It may be perjury, to be sure, to do this, but then you’re fulfilling your obligation, and you know if you “live up to your obligations you’ll be free from sin”…. You must conceal all the crimes of your brother Mason, except murder and treason, and these only at your own option, and should you be summoned as a witness against a brother Mason be always sure to shield him. Prevaricate, don’t tell the whole truth in this case, keep his secrets.”
Anybody else fed up with all this crap? I can hardly believe my eyes any more it’s all so fucking contrived, shallow and meaningless. Just look for a second at the stuff going down around our planet and you’d think you were in a bad sci-fi production in some failed studio full of unconscious drooling dweebs.
We can harp all day long on the conscious awakening which is wonderful, but it doesn’t make this crap go away. At least not yet. But it’s such insane spew one can hardly believe their eyes. And if anyone swallows it, man are they in for trouble!
The cool thing is the polarization. While it’s bad news for the idiots who refuse to see the truth, yes refuse, because it’s self evident, it’s setting the awake on new projected courses they never dreamed of. And that’s even more than wonderful – as long as they don’t shirk in fear of the unknown.
But I suspect most who’ve woken up to some degree are fed up enough to try just about anything. And that’s a good thing, because the unknown is hurling towards us whether we like it or not. And it’s nothing to fear.
But for goodness sake, see things as they are! From there you can operate consciously instead of on ethereal cereal BS blindness.
Here’s a poignant example of reality breaking out from 50 years ago that’s well worth reviewing. Just think where the hell this altered civilization has gone since then at its accelerating rate of adulterated change!
Now you’re getting it.
It’s healthy as hell to get mad and fed up with this bullshit going on around us. If people don’t recognize it for what it is they’re living in a dream world – either a defensive “safe zone” of religious or belief system framework, or some kind of crapola flitty disjointed anti-reality I really don’t want to know about.
“Every one of us human beings has two minds. One is totally ours, it is like a faint voice that always brings us order, directness, purpose. The other is a foreign installation. It brings us conflict, self-assertion, doubts, hopelessness: it’s ourselves as the ‘me-me’ centre of the world.”
Thus spoke Carlos Castaneda in ‘The Active Side of infinity’ which is part of the ‘Teachings of Don Juan’ series. And I’m going to give you more excerpts from The Active Side of Infinity. Because I believe that these writings present Shamanic teachings to us in a direct, powerful way – and at a time when we most need them.
The deft fusing of spirit and earth which rises up out of these writings, is a powerful native tradition in South America – as it is also amongst the native North American Indian tribes. Jumping into Castaneda’s writings is special, maybe particularly because they go straight to the gut, whereas many more contemplative esoteric traditions (of East and West) tend to home-in on the intellectual and heart chakra levels.
I believe we need a good dose of gut centred experience at this particular time, so as to get anchored and earthed – while all around mind oriented activities are throwing-up a thousand refractions of information – that in the end clog the neurons of the neo- cortex and render us permanently on the brink of overload.
At times like these one needs to reconnect with an older, native kind of intuition that has its nest in the solar plexus; the place where the umbilical cord once bought essential nourishment to our tiny forming bodies.
“Infinity is everything that surrounds us: the spirit, the dark sea of awareness. It is something that exists out there and rules our lives. My steps and yours are ruled by infinity. The circumstances that seem to be ruled by chance are in essence ruled by the active side of infinity: intent. What put you and me together was the intent of infinity. It is impossible to determine what this intent of infinity is, yet it is there, as palpable as you and I are.”

I awoke this morning, pondering on the evidence I still witness and experience of the hooks, barbs and velcro that remain deep in our flesh, or which just snag at our clothing from time to time. I see these various forms of hooks as representing some aspect of the control system, the Matrix.
When we decide to break free of this control system, we encounter massive problems, in the form of the myriad of hooks, comfort hooks, safety hooks, family hooks, emotional-reaction-dependance hooks, religious hooks, nationality hooks, etc.
And one of the most insidious ways in which this matrix has us hooked, and what I wish to discuss in this essay, is its Calendar systems.
In particular I refer to the standard western calendar, as it was within this where my indoctrination took place. Calendars are a collection of hooks, aka, dates and their various associated meanings which cause us to react in some way or another.
Take a look at those calendar dates that come and go, and come back around again. Notice how certain dates seem to come with a preinserted hook (such as religious dates)? Or how some dates have you re-inserting the same hook you thought you had removed? Yet, over time, multiple insertions of the same ‘hook’, aka, emotional reactions and/or the participation in political or social events, have taken place.
There is a reason why the ‘greetings card’ industry exists, and it is NOT only to make money, which it makes in enormous quantities. It is mainly there to keep you hooked into this matrix via the calendar system.
Think of the many dates now that are ‘celebrated’. Even if you don’t actually buy a greetings card on one of these ‘ special dates’, such as Valentines Day, or Mothers Day, you are still very likely to be at least aware and therefore somewhat distracted by and/or reacting on some emotional level to these dates – whether your reaction is joy or guilt, or something else, you are still reacting and therefore you are still, however severely or mildly, ‘hooked’.

Everything Zen? … I Think So
Zen Gardner- LIVE- on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show
As I have alluded to in previous articles, one of the exciting benefits of being involved in Alternative Media is my access to so many phenomenal patriots and freedom fighters. Not only do I get the opportunity to read their fine articles, occasionally I have the chance to speak to them on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show. There are many fine writers in the sphere of Alternative Media, and I scramble to find the time to read all the great material out there. However, one writer who I always try to make time for is Zen, from the Zen Gardner website.
After reading many of Zen’s timely and insightful articles, I reached out and invited him to be a guest on The Liberty Brothers Radio Show. Much to our delight, Zen graciously accepted our invitation. I have included Zen’s brief bio for those of you out there who may need to be enlightened, and following that is Thursday’s interview with Zen live on the radio.
Zen Gardner began his online writing and blogging 8 years ago after a lifelong quest for truth and several major life changes. His focus is empowering humanity to reach its full potential in conscious awareness and its resultant activation in the expression of our lives which will bring the changes the world needs. He writes on his website zengardner.com on a variety of subjects from earth and human origins and our manipulated spiritual and historical context, to current political events in an effort to dismantle old mind sets in order to free and encourage the awakening of human consciousness that is readily available to all. His website features the work of many unique contributors and includes an alive and supportive community.

Make no mistake you are swimming in an unseen sea of energy.
We are constantly exposed to an electromagnetic field (also EMF or EM field) which is a physical field produced by electrically charged objects. It affects the behavior of charged objects in the vicinity of the field. That means – you! You can think of this sea of energy as one of the natural laws governing the material world, and unless you are a highly advanced yogi or sage able to completely block this energetic interference with your own energy, you are being bombarded with electromagnetic waves of all sorts.
For electromagnetic waves, both the electric and magnetic fields play a role in the transport of energy. The Lorentz Law in free space begins to explain this phenomenon. You can learn all about it at an open course offered by MIT, or you can simply observe the phenomenon in every day life.
They come from things like:
Cell Phone Towers – these towers give off EM fields that are known to affect both people and animals, often very negatively. In fact, you are exposed to more than 100 million times more electromagnetic radiation than your grandparents were, and much of it comes from cell towers.

In Memory of Ella Dis – Born 2nd January 2006 – Died 5th June 2014
Over the years I have highlighted a growing number of cases in which the parents of children injured by a vaccine have subsequently been falsely accused of Munchausen Syndrome by Proxy (MSBP.)
One of the most poignant of cases for me was the case of Ella Dis. 
Ella began life as a normal, cheeky, healthy little girl, who enjoyed toddling around and playing with her toys. Sadly all this was to change dramatically soon after she received her eight week routine vaccinations.
Within hours of the vaccinations Ella became weak and feverish, refusing feeds. Worried, her mother Ragna Erlendsdóttir took her daughter to the local hospital where doctors assured her that she had picked up a virus and would be fine.
Not connecting the illness to the vaccinations, and blissfully unaware that this was only the beginning of her daughter’s problems, Ragna took her baby home.

Walcoff walked into what looked like a living room.
A soft brown couch with floral pillows sat in the middle; flowers and books rested atop wooden tables and lined the walls. “It seemed not study-like,” Walcoff said in a YouTube video.
Despite its homely appearance, Walcoff knew she had arrived to the place where she was going to be studied for science.
Months before, Walcoff had volunteered to participate in a study of how the psychedelic drug psilocybin — the main psychoactive ingredient in magic mushrooms — affects the brain in cancer patients with anxiety and depression.
Walcoff, 65, had been diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer at 60 and struggled for years with debilitating anxiety. Even on good days, her constant feelings of worry and fear hung in the back of her mind like a dark curtain.
Crucial Home Office files relating to allegations of child sex abuse in the 1980s are still missing, it emerged last night.
A dossier seen as key to claims ministers were warned about allegations of Establishment abuse as not been found by an inquiry set up to examine the Home Office’s handling of the complaints.
It was claimed former Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens handed the papers to the Home Office detailing allegations of abuse.
A review into the case by NSPCC chief executive Peter Wanless is to be published next week.
Mr Dickens, who died in 1995, said he gave details of Establishment paedophiles – known as ‘Dickens dossier’ – to then Home Secretary Leon Brittan in 1983.
A source told BBC2’s Newsnight: ‘They have looked inside and behind every single cupboard in the department, and they have been round them twice, and they have not been able to find any of them.’
Mind at Large is a concept detailed in “The Doors of Perception” and “Heaven and Hell”, written by Aldous Huxley, who experimented with psychedelic drugs extensively throughout his life. On one particular occasion, Huxley was administered mescaline and had an interviewer prompt him to make comments on various stimuli around him. These comments were recorded, and “The Doors of Perception” consists primarily of Huxley’s thoughts on what he said during these recordings.
In the book, Huxley explores the idea that the human mind filters reality ‒ partly because handling the details of all of the impressions and images coming in would be unbearable, partly because it has been taught to do so. He believes that psychotropic drugs can partly remove this filter, leaving the drug user exposed to Mind at Large. Huxley also observes that during a psychedelic experience everyday objects lose their functionality and suddenly simply exist “as such”. Space and dimension become irrelevant, and perceptions seem to be enlarged, and at times even overwhelming.
The following excerpts come from Aldous Huxley’s “The Doors of Perception”:
“Each person is at each moment capable of remembering all that has ever happened to him and of perceiving everything that is happening everywhere in the Universe. The function of the brain and nervous system is to protect us from being overwhelmed and confused by this mass of largely useless and irrelevant knowledge, by shutting out most of what we should otherwise perceive or remember at any moment, and leaving only that very small and special selection which is likely to be practically useful. According to such a theory, each one of us is potentially Mind at Large.”
“In the final stage of egolessness there is an ‘obscure knowledge’ that All is in all — that All is actually each. This is as near, I take it, as a finite mind can ever come to ‘perceiving everything that is happening everywhere in the Universe.’”
An excerpt from Aldous Huxley’s “The Doors of Perception”, read by Rudolph Schirmer…
Federal watchdog report “calls into question” US efforts to stamp out opium production
Opium poppy cultivation levels in Afghanistan are at a record high, though the U.S. government has spent over $7 billion to stop it, a federal watchdog states in a new report.
In a letter to Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, Attorney General Eric Holder and US AID head Rajiv Shah, Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR) John F. Sopko writes: “Despite spending over $7 billion to combat opium poppy cultivation and to develop the Afghan government’s counternarcotics capacity, opium poppy cultivation levels in Afghanistan hit an all-time high in 2013.”
“As of June 30, 2014, the United States has spent approximately $7.6 billion on counternarcotics efforts in Afghanistan,” the letter states.
Bill Bard says:
HA HA HA what a load of Bollocks. How many have been killed to achieve these results?
