Public Proclamation of Liberty
A Public Proclamation of Liberty by Kevin Annett
n November, 2009, exactly one half of Canadians surveyed in a national poll declared their desire to be part of a new Republic, and abolish all ties to the so-called Crown of England. We take our stand with that half of our fellow citizens who long for self-government and sovereignty, and proclaim that the long, dark colonial legacy of dependence and legal enslavement to a foreign power must end forever in Canada. We will no longer be ruled from afar by an unaccountable and privileged elite, by a fictitious jurisdictional authority that claims sole possession of our lands and wealth, and which has been responsible for grave and ongoing crimes against the peoples of our different founding nations. We proclaim that every man and woman of Canada has an equal, inherent and inalienable right to life, to liberty, and to the land, wealth and prosperity of our nation. The earth has been given as an equal bounty for all of us to share, according to the Great Natural Law of Equality and
email@example.com Peace given us by our Creator. It is the solemn duty of every citizen to ensure this great law and be the active defenders of the inherent liberties granted to them by life and the Creator: liberties which no law or authority can violate, debase or nullify. Only a sovereign Republic established under the rule of Common Law and maintained by an active and enlightened people can ensure such a happy and free society. Accordingly, we proclaim that henceforth, our allegiance lies not with the so-called Crown of England and its dependent government of Canada, but with a sovereign Republic of Kanata, which is and shall be the sole legitimate, constitutional authority over the former lands and territories known as Canada. We hereby proclaim that this sovereign Republic shall be established according to its own common law institutions and courts under a mandate given to it by a popular and general referendum held across Canada, in which every man and woman sixteen years and older shall participate.
Until then, we, the Provisional Council for the Republic of Kanata, represented by the Republican Party of Kanata (RPK), shall work to build the foundation for a new and just society, uniting our peoples and undoing centuries of oppression, genocide and oligarchy. We call upon all patriots and lovers of liberty across our nations to unite under our banner to reclaim the land and wealth of Canada, and construct new common law institutions that shall ensure prosperity, equality and justice for all of our people.
A Program for Liberation and Sovereignty A sovereign Republic of Kanata established through a direct, popular referendum and the will of the people, shall create a new Constitution that shall re-establish Canada as a federated and secular Republic based on the recognition and legality of the common ownership by all citizens of the lands, wealth and resources of the nation.

Research Proves Sunlight Prevents Cancer
by Sayer Ji
or the same reason that the conventional energy industry has not harnessed the full potential of solar energy (it’s free!), sunlight and its indispensable by-product in our skin: vitamin D, represents a serious threat to the medical establishment, whose questionable and aggressive promotion of vaccination and drug-based strategies in place of inexpensive, safe and effective vitamin D supplementation (or better, carefully meted out recreation and sunlight exposure) for immunity, has many questioning their motives. Vitamin D, after all, has a vital preventive role to play in hundreds of conditions, due to the fact that 1 in every 10 genes in the human body depends on adequate quantities of this gene-regulatory hormone to function optimally. In other words, the very genetic/epigenetic infrastructure of our health would fall apart without adequate levels. Even the risk for developing cancer, one of the most feared health conditions of our time -- and the one the medical establishment has had the least success preventing and treating -- is intimately connected to your vitamin D status. Indeed, a ground-breaking new meta-analysis on the sunlight-vitamin D connection, published in the journal Anticancer Research and based on data from over 100
countries, found that “a strong inverse correlations with solar UVB for 15 types of cancer,” with weaker, though still significant evidence for the protective role of sunlight in 9 other cancers. The relevant cancers were: Bladder, breast, cervical, colon, endometrial, esophageal, gastric, lung, ovarian, pancreatic, rectal, renal, and vulvar cancer; and Hodgkin’s and non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Weaker evidence exists for nine other types of cancer: brain, gallbladder, laryngeal, oral/pharyngeal, prostate, and thyroid cancer; leukemia; melanoma; and multiple myeloma. Sunlight exposure, after all, is essential for health from the moment we are born. Without it, for instance, infants are prone to developing neonatal jaundice. The very variation in human skin colour from African, melanin-saturated dark skin, to the relatively melanin depigmented, Caucasian lighter-skin, is a by-product of the offspring of our last common ancestor from Africa (as determined by mitochondrial DNA) migrating towards sunlight-impoverished higher latitudes, which began approximately 60,000 years ago. In order to compensate for the lower availability of
sunlight, the body rapidly adjusted, essentially requiring the removal of the natural “sunscreen” melanin from the skin, which interferes with vitamin D production. While a life-saving adaptation, the loss of melanin likely has adverse health effects, which include losing the ability to convert sunlight into metabolic energy, increased prevalence of Parkinson’s disease (which involves de-melanization of the substantia nigra), and others effects which we will discuss in detail in a future article. For now, it is important to point out that within the span of only 60,000 years (a nanosecond in biological time), many of the skin “color” differences among the world’s human inhabitants reflect how heavily genetically-conserved was the ability of the human body to produce vitamin D. It should also be pointed out that vitamin D is to sunlight, what ascorbic acid is to the vitamin C activity in food. In other words, sunlight likely provides a greater spectrum of therapeutic activity (when carefully meted out, preferably during solar noon) than supplemental vitamin D3, which is almost exclusively derived from UVB irradiated sheep’s lanolin.

ell, here we go, 2012, another Gregorian new year. Happy Mayan good times! Apocalypse (to uncover and reveal) Now! Year of the Water Dragon. “Water calms the Dragon’s fire. Water Dragons are able to see things from other points of view. They don’t have the need to always be right. Their decisions, if well-researched, are usually better since they allow others to become involved.” http://www.chinesezodiac.com/dragon.php. Auspicious energy for The New Agora and our interesting times. There’s such a flood of ‘new’ information that anything less then a ‘The End is Nigh’ headline sometimes gets lost in the tide. There are so many worthwhile stories that making the choices of what makes it to print every month is more akin to triage in a war zone, then a simple selection based on merit, interest or preference. We put out what information we can with practicality in mind. There are warnings, of course, some dire and downright discomfiting, that have to come out immediately, becoming aware is the point here. We make the effort to offer a balance to that information by sharing preventative and at times ground-breaking knowledge that empowers us to evolve with open eyes and hearts. Because the huge influx of truly important world events is straining the limits of our paper we have included a ‘Help Yourself Headlines’ section that basically lists the biggest headlines and their internet addresses for further reading and research on the reader’s part. These stories are just too important for anyone to miss regardless of our page count restrictions. We’d love to have an even bigger paper and to include ‘em all in their entirety (good to have this info in print), and if you want to see us doing just that then drop us a line and get a subscription for you or a friend or both, consider becoming a participator in this New Agora, publicize or advertise your business or events with us, spread the word, share awareness, empower yourself with your dreams. Life is the ultimate Art. Author your own experience. Now thanks to our wonderful Participators and the encouragement of our Readers ‘The New Agora’ has grown to twenty eight pages. We’re poised to go National. Heck, we’re becoming the first agora of a new Nation. This is the right time for such a task. We can dream a new world together. That’s our destiny, our heritage. Look around at the world Fear created. Now imagine a world of Love. Heavens! When I was travelling through Europe recently, changing planes at the Amsterdam airport on my return to Vancouver, one of my worst fears was seemingly realized. As we were all lining up to board the plane to Canada, herded in these metal piped alleys to pass through whatever electronic craziness they had ready for us, I noticed with a cold chill that the only choice for me was one of two of the infamous full body scanners. As we approached this frightening reality, I quickly went through my options: refusing the scan, refusing the flight, screaming bloody murder! Everyone around me was oblivious. Everyone ahead of me just went through. Nobody was saying anything. After calming down I noticed that in the middle of the two radiation machines stood a traditional metal detector, although there was a plastic barrier in front of it. Seeing a third point I mentioned first my alarm to the people around me pointing out the middle solution. A lovely lady mentioned she was pregnant and didn’t want to be irradiated. No kidding! When it was my turn I insisted on the radiation free choice. I was informed that they don’t go the full monty in Amsterdam: it’s just ultra sound. I told them I didn’t believe them and so: no way! No way was I going to submit! They moved the plastic see-through barrier. I went through the middle metal detector gate, and after a pat down: that was that. Most everyone else went either right or left to the full body scanners, pregnant ladies too… It’s our absolute refusal to play any game but one of our own choosing that will win the day, in my humble opinion. Big talk, I know, particularly when the other guy is ‘packing’ a government approved license to beat you up, put you in a cage, or electrocute you, or shoot you dead. As I was nervously standing in line at ‘Customs’ to enter the country, my bags filled with cheese and meats and wines of various kinds and levels of so called legality, I was struck by the total ludicrousness of my situation: subject to declarations of submission to prescribed authority. Made to feel criminal in my humanity. There I stood, vaguely fearing discovery of my edible and delicious contraband, going through many a tall tale in my mind to explain away my excess of allowed ‘custom’, when I suddenly realized just how silly it all was, asking, needing, begging, wanting someone’s permission to do anything! I can understand a cautious awareness whereas health, food items and so on are concerned, of course. Do No Harm. But this whole criminal, pretending to legality, strong-armed extortion (taxes), State controlled and dictated existence is another beast altogether. When you really feel the hard truth and see that one’s compliance hinges on the threat of violence and incarceration, a powerful feeling begins to smoulder in your centre. I’ve never, ever, ever, felt good about being obedient. It’s deeply insulting and downright evil to demand this of another, or of oneself. And so when I am faced with this kind of weaponized submission of consciousness I struggle to remember who I really am, bearing witness to the odd choices of some of my peers, I compose myself as the author in the story of my life, centred and so empowered, I choose door number three, the middle one, and declare myself free.

Fluoride Linked to #1 Cause of Death in New Research by Anthony Gucciardi
round-breaking new research has linked sodium fluoride to cardiovascular disease, the leading cause of death worldwide. Researchers found that fluoride consumption directly stimulates the hardening of your arteries, a condition known as atherosclerosis that is highly correlated with the #1 killer. Sodium fluoride is currently added to the water supply of many cities worldwide, despite extreme opposition from health professionals and previous studies linking it to decreased IQ and infertility. In their research, scientists examined the relationship between fluoride intake and the hardening (calcification) of the arteries. Studying more than 60 patients, the researchers found a significant correlation between fluoride consumption and the calcification of your arteries. Published in the January edition of the journal Nuclear Medicine Communications, the research highlights the fact that mass fluoride exposure may be to blame for the cardiovascular disease epidemic that takes more lives each year than cancer. In 2008, cardiovascular killed 17 million people. According to the authors of the study: “The coronary fluoride uptake value in patients with cardiovascular events was significantly higher than in patients without cardiovascular events.” Amazingly, this is not the first report to come out on the dangers of water fluoridation, however the United States government along with other nations have allowed for the continued fluoridation of the public water supply despite these key findings. In fact, the U.S. government has even gone on record stating that a reduction in water
Aluminum + Fluoride = Alzheimers and Dementia by Barbara H. Peterson FarmWars.info
hemtrails contain “the oxides of metals,” according to this geo-engineering patent. These substances are supposedly sprayed into our atmosphere for “beneficial” climate manipulation, or geoengineering, and residue tests indicate excess aluminum oxide in water and soil after heavy chemtrailing. Fluoride is put in our water to “prevent tooth decay.” Both of these actions, geo-engineering and fluoridation, on the surface, appear to be beneficial, with only good intentions behind their implementation. Really!

fluoridation needs to occur following the results of a massive study that found water fluoridation affected cognitive function to the point of lowering the IQ of children. It turns out that the announcement was little more than a public relations stunt to curtail the massive wave of activism that followed the findings.
Government Admits Dangers Yet Continues to Pump Fluoride Into Your Water Supply Over 24 other studies have unanimously concluded that fluoride negatively impacts cognitive function. In addition to these 24 studies focusing on cognition, over 100 animal studies have linked fluoride to an increase in male infertility, diabetes, and a whole host of other health problems. In the latest study on cognition, it was found that that 28% of the children who lived in an area where fluoride levels were low achieved the highest test scores. This means that the children exposed to less fluoride scored normal or advanced, while only 8% of fluoridated children did the same. In fact, the safety precautions regarding sodium fluoride are quite telling themselves: Risk and Safety Phrases. R25 – Toxic if swallowed. R32 – Contact with acid liberates very toxic gas. R36/38 – Irritating to skin and eyes. S1/2 – Keep locked up and out of reach of children. S22 – Do not breathe dust. S36 – Wear suitable protective clothing.
S45 - In case of accident or if you feel unwell, seek medical advice immediately (show the label whenever possible.) But what about cavity prevention? Since 1962 the government has recommended fluoride levels between 0.7 and 1.2 milligrams per litre in the nations drinking water. Toted as an excellent cavity blocker, fluoride has been praised for its alleged power to prevent tooth decay and boost oral health. Research has now revealed that fluoride, the very substance that is supposed to prevent tooth decay, actually does nothing to prevent against cavities. In fact, vitamin D has been found to be significantly more effective in cavity prevention without the extreme side effects. Instead of damaging your body, vitamin D slashes your risk of just about everything fluoride consumption causes. According to the latest numbers, over 72 percent of Americans drink water treated with fluoride. Is it any wonder that cardiovascular disease rates are off the charts? Perhaps most concerning is the fact that fluoride does not even prevent cavities, which is the very reason legislators have pushed to keep it in the public water supply despite the links to deadly disease. Even if fluoride was found to prevent cavities, would it be worth the adverse effects? Fluoride should be completely removed from the international water supply as it is a threat to public health. Until the proper legislation is passed, acquiring a highquality water filter that removes fluoride is vital for the health perseverance of you and your family.
when the animals were fed low doses of fluoride. The presence of fluoride enhanced the bio-availability of aluminum (Al) causing more aluminum to cross the blood-brain barrier and become deposited in the brain. The aluminum level in the brains of the fluoride-treated group was double that of the controls. (3)
Aluminum is implicated in Alzheimer’s disease Certain aluminum compounds have been found to be an important component of the neurological damage characteristics of Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Much research over the last decade has focused on the role of aluminum in the development of this disease. At this point, its role is still not clearly defined. Since AD is a chronic disease which may take a long time to develop, long-term exposure is the most important measure of intake. Long-term exposure is easiest to estimate for drinking water exposures. (1) “Subacute to chronic toxicity: Aluminum may be implicated in Alzheimers disease.” …and dementia: Dementia develops when the parts of the brain that are involved with learning, memory, decision-making, and language are affected by one or more of a variety of infections or diseases. The most common cause of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, but there are as many as 50 other known causes. Most of these causes are very rare. (2) Fluoride “enhances the bio-availability of aluminum,” allowing it to cross the blood-brain barrier easier, thus making it more toxic. The following study is from 1998: ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE AND DEMENTIA – IMPORTANT NEW STUDY SHOWS GRAVE IMPLICATIONS FROM INTERACTION OF ALUMINUM AND LOW DOSE FLUORIDE The latest edition of the peer-reviewed medical journal, Brain Research, (vol.784:l998), reveals that aluminuminduced neural degeneration in rats is greatly enhanced
So why are we fluoridating our water supply? Considering that the secret is out about the effectiveness or lack thereof of fluoride to prevent tooth decay as referenced by the following report, how exactly is it that this potentially deadly combination has gone relatively unnoticed by the medical establishment? And probably the most important question of all is, why are we standing by and blindly accepting our poison without so much as a whimper? Research shows that fluoridation does not reduce cavities but quite possibly increases them, yet we fluoridate our water, then spray aluminum from the sky to pollute that water, the soil, and air. We unwittingly ingest this aluminum, take a nice cool drink of fluoridated water, and end up a few years down the road wondering where we misplaced our minds and health. This is a two-part mix that leads to a crippling disease. Our brains and nervous systems are under attack, and we end up paying dearly for the privilege of being poisoned to death. Insane? Yes. But very real. Whether you believe we are being subjected to an intentional depopulation agenda or simply hapless victims of reckless corporate greed, it’s happening! You can’t refute the facts. Aluminum + Fluoride = Alzheimer’s and Dementia. The combination is deadly. They know it, I know it, and now you know it.

Poor Not Helped; Money Wasted; Kids in Dental Pain; Viable Alternatives Shunned
espite decades of water fluoridation in New York State, the Journal of the American Dental Association reports that emergency treatment for NYS toddlers’ severe tooth decay has grown substantially in numbers and costs, many require general anesthesia, (1) reports the New York State Coalition Opposed to Fluoridation, Inc. (NYSCOF) Fluoridation is touted as an effective cavity preventive that will save money. But this study and others proves it’s doing neither. In 72% fluoridated NYS, 25,622 children, under sixyears-old, made cavity-related emergency dental visits from 2004 though 2008. Visits grew from 4,361 in 2004 to 5,683 in 2008. Seventy-five percent required general anesthesia, up from 35% in 2004. Total costs: $121 Million ($18.5 million in 2004 increased to $31.3 million in 2008), most borne by taxpayers. “There is a limited number of dentists willing to treat patients younger than 6 and/or accept Medicaid” write the NYS researchers.
More Statistics Show Fluoridation Fails New York State NYS Department of Health statistics reveal that, even when water is fluoridated, cavity-rates are extremely high in low-income third-graders. For example: • • • • • • •
85% of low-income third graders have tooth decay in WayneCounty(74% fluoridated) 83% in OntarioCounty(61% fluoridated) 82% in CayugaCounty(not fluoridated) 82% in AlleghenyCounty(14% fluoridated) 81% in LivingstonCounty(55% fluoridated) 67% in SchuylerCounty(not fluoridated) 58% in NassauCounty(not fluoridated)
Fluoridation not only fails New York State but nationally children, the elderly and poor lack dental care. The General Accounting Office estimates that 6.5 million children aged 2 through 18 in Medicaid had untreated tooth decay in 2005. Oral health complications may be associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes, respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, and diabetes. Annually, 164 million work hours and 51 million school hours are lost due to dental problems, according to the Institute of Medicine. Also, a 2008 study of the armed forces reveals 52% of new recruits had oral health problems needing urgent attention, reports the Pew Charitable Trust. “The American economy is hurt by dentists’ refusal to treat low-income Americans and by organized dentistry’s lobbying to outlaw cheaper dental care by viable dental professionals, such as dental therapists,” says attorney Paul Beeber, NYSCOF President. “Fluoridation is a false concept that must be abandoned.”
Past Studies Show that when fluoridation ceases so do cavities • • • • • •
Cavity rates decreased six years after fluoridation was stopped in Kupio, Finland. Seven years after fluoridation ended in LaSalud, Cuba, cavity-free children increased dramatically. Following the cessation of water fluoridation in the East German cities, Chemnitz and Plauen, a significant fall in caries prevalence was observed. After fluoridation ended in the East German cities, Spremberg and Zittau, cavities in 12-year-olds significantly decreased. During an 11-month fluoridation break in Durham, NC, cavity rates remained stable but dental fluorosis declined in children born during that period. In 1973, the Dutch town of Tiel stopped fluoridation. Decayed, missing and filled surfaces dipped in 15-year-olds. Never-fluoridated Culemborg’s 15-yearolds had 72% less cavities over the same period.

Pineapple Enzyme Superior to Chemotherapy in Treating Cancer by Sayer Ji
very once in a while a study pops up on the National Library of Medicine’s bibliographic database known as MEDLINE that not only confirms the therapeutic relevance of natural substances in cancer treatment, but blows the conventional approach out of the water. Published in 2007 in the journal Planta Medica, researchers found that an enzyme extracted from pineapple stems known as bromelain was superior to the chemo-agent 5-fluorauracil in treating cancer in the animal model. The researchers stated: This antitumoral effect [bromelain] was superior to that of 5-FU [5-fluorouracil], whose survival index was approximately 263 %, relative to the untreated control. What is so remarkable about this research is that 5-FU has been used as a cancer treatment for 40 years, and has been relatively unsuccessful due to its less than perfect selectivity at killing cancer, often killing and/or irreversibly damaging healthy cells and tissue, as well. As a highly toxic, fluoride-bound form of the nucleic acid uracil, a normal component of RNA, the drug is supposed to work by tricking more rapidly dividing cells -- which include both cancer and healthy intestinal, hair follicle, and immune cells -- into taking it up, thereby inhibiting (read: poisoning) RNA replication enzymes and RNA synthesis. The material safety data sheet (MSDS) for 5-FU states: The dose at which 50% of the animals given the drug die is 115mg/kg, or the equivalent of 7.8 grams for a 150 lb adult human.

ity,” whereby they are able to induce programmed cell death (the graceful self-disassembly known as apoptosis) within the cancer cells, while leaving healthy cells and tissue unharmed. No FDA-approved chemotherapy drug on the market today has this indispensable property, which is why cancer treatment is still in the dark ages, often destroying the quality of life, and accelerating the death of those who undergo it, often unwittingly. When a person dies following conventional cancer treatment it is all too easy to “blame the victim” and simply write that patient’s cancer off as “chemo-resistant,” or “exceptionally aggressive,” when in fact the non-selective nature of the chemotoxic agent is what ultimately lead to their death. Keep in mind that bromelain, like all natural substances, will never receive FDA drug approval. Capital, at the present time, does not flow into the development of non-patentable (i.e. non-profitable) cancer therapies -- even if they work, are safe and extremely affordable. This is simply the nature of the beast. Until we compel our government to utilize our tax dollars to invest in this type of research, there will be no level playing field in cancer treatment, or any treatment offered through the conventional medical establishment, for that matter. Or, some of us may decide to take our health into our own hands, and use the research, already freely available on possible natural cancer treatment, to inform our treatment decisions without the guidance of the modern-day equivalent of the “priest” of the body, the conventional oncologist, who increasingly fills the description of an “applied pharmacologist/toxicologist” - nothing more, nothing less.

How then, can something as innocuous as the enzyme from the stem/core of a pineapple be superior to a drug that millions of cancer patients over the past 40 years have placed their hopes of recovery on, as well as spending billions of dollars on in the process?

Are Your Clothes Making You Sick? by Anthony Gucciardi NaturalSociety.com
ith every form of industry slashing costs and utilizing potentially dangerous new manufacturing technologies in an attempt to monetize and reduce workload, many of these companies are putting your health at risk. Such is the case with the clothing industry according to new research, which asks the question as to whether or not your clothes may be making you sick. Some corporations have begun embedding something known as antimicrobial compounds into a number of common products including toothpaste, hand soaps, and even items within the clothing industry. The antimicrobial compounds are added to kill germs and odours, which appears to be beneficial at first glance. The truth of the matter, however, is that scientists have found that these antimicrobial chemicals may actually be damaging your thyroid in addition to your hormonal system.
Triclosan, Nanoparticles Added to Clothing Pose Health & Environmental Risk Furthermore, these antimicrobial compounds do not really pack a powerful anti-odour or anti-germ punch. In fact, the antimicrobials added into premium brand name clothing items are actually the same as washing with soap and water. These products are sometimes loaded with harsh antibacterial agents such as triclosan, and trichlorocarban. Silver can also be used in nanoparticle form, which are tiny particles that can cross the bloodbrain barrier. Prominent health professionals have warned against products containing nanoparticles due to the fact that the technology has never been thoroughly tested for effects on human health. These two chemicals were found to begin washing out of the clothing quickly, and within around 10 washes half of the triclosan and triclocarban washed out. What this means is that the chemicals could easily be absorbed into your skin as a result of sweating or even from water touching the antimicrobial clothing.
Washed out chemicals can also negatively impact the environment after passing through water treatment plants, posing a risk to wildlife, humans, and the food supply. The Swedish Chemical Agency, where researchers conducted the tests, also warned that children could absorb the microbial compounds which could negatively impact their developing bodies.
How to Avoid These Products Luckily, there are key indicators to look for that will help you avoid clothing loaded with antimicrobial compounds. Avoid home-ware products and clothing marketed as anti-odour, antimicrobial, or antibacterial, and avoid personal care products that list triclosan or trichlorocarban on the ingredients label. For optimum results, purchase 100% organic personal care products and clothing if possible. You can vote with your dollar, and you can deliver a message to companies adding health-threatening chemicals to their products by simply not buying them.
Restored, Repaired, Renewed and Revitalized! by Glennis Taylor BSc
knew that I wouldn’t have to worry about getting my socks dirty because my feet weren’t touching the ground after my uplifting conversation with our well respected West Coast advocate of phenomenal health, Sam Graci. Sam has a colourful history of cutting-edge research, product development and formulation. His books and extensive speaking engagements have made Sam Graci a household name in the alternative health arena, well known through his association with the Greens+ line of nutritional products. In 1991, Sam led the field with his hugely successful introduction of whole foods concentrates. His Greens+ products have set the high industry standard for two decades with an array of innovative lines. As an adolescent counsellor in the 70’s, Sam worked with high risk youth, many with criminal records. His care and concern for these young people led him to use nutrition as a tool to change their lives. As diet and lifestyle modifications showed dramatic results, Sam dug deeper for ways to nurture the body, mind and soul, leading him on a lifelong journey of discovery and learning about how to achieve optimum health. “We are ancient biological systems in a modern context”, Sam emphasizes. We wear our biological systems down with our fast paced and stressful lifestyles, and that by addressing several key areas we can help slow down the hands of time. Nutrition is an obvious area. Eating a natural, more alkaline, organic, green and “cell friendly” diet is paramount. Moving, stretching and deep breathing are life-giving. Positive mental and emotional habits can make a dramatic difference. Developing healthy sleep patterns is rejuvenating. Nutrition and exercise, most of us are familiar with, but are probably less clear on the science behind sleep - whose importance, as Sam explains it, is critical and cannot be overstated. Sleep deprivation is huge. During the day, we are in a catabolic state where the body is breaking down, the wear and tear phase. It is in the anabolic state, which occurs during sleep, that the body is “restored, repaired, renewed and revitalized.” In complete darkness, the pineal gland triggers the release of the sleep inducing hormone, melatonin. Melatonin not only encourages us
to fall asleep, but lowers our body temperature by about 1 degree. It also helps regulate fat metabolism. Could there be a link between our struggle with obesity and our sleep patterns? Since the extensive use of electricity has extended our days with artificial light, we also extend the catabolic period, reducing the time for our bodies to be restored as the healing anabolic state is shortened. Melatonin and the deep sleep it produces initiates the release of Human Growth Hormone (HGH) by the pituitary gland. This important hormone is crucial to renewing the body. When melatonin production is suppressed by such factors as high insulin, and, surprising to many, the use of OTC and prescription sleep aids, as well as lack of sufficient darkness, we don’t produce as much HGH and health declines. Caffeine, alcohol and smoking also lower melatonin levels. Even very low levels of light stimulate the optic nerve, alerting the body to be aware of dangers lurking, reducing quality sleep. We are hard wired to believe that in complete darkness the world sleeps and we are safe to remain asleep. Studies have shown that HGH is still produced during quiet prayer or meditation as long as there is total darkness. Ideally, we should not eat carbohydrates after 7pm to avoid insulin spikes and should call it a day by 10pm for optimal health. As we walk through each day we might be reminded that a few decades ago, on average, we took about 15,000 steps a day. Today we may average 3000 steps. Daily exercise for the most part has declined. Sam referred to a study done by Dr. Prior at UBC where fourteen year old girls were studied. Those that spent time doing quieter inside activities, as opposed to those who were active outside, showed a significant reduction in bone development. Exercise is undeniably important for good health. And breathe, don’t forget to breathe. Take those deep alkalizing breaths throughout the day! “We need to be in tune with our bodies” says Sam. “We must move in harmony with nature.” Sam lives by his words and is an inspiration for all of us to take utmost care of ourselves from this moment on! Thanks Sam! Sam will be at the 20th Annual Wellness Show in Vancouver: February 17-19. A great show to check out on your path to phenomenal health.

Is This Humble Plant Capable of Alleviating Most Human Suffering?
by Sayer Ji
ncient Indians believed that turmeric contained the energy of the Divine Mother. Modern science now confirms that it has therapeutic properties relevant to well over 500 health conditions, and may bestow on those who take it protection from many common causes of suffering. The author has personally reviewed the majority of 4,000+ biomedical citations on turmeric and its primary polyphenol curcumin, available to view on the National
ActivistPost.com Library of Medicine’s bibliographic reference database known as MEDLINE (and searchable through engines like Pubmed.gov), and has been awed by how diverse, powerful and seemingly ideally suited this spice is for addressing the broad range of diseases and/or disease symptoms that commonly afflict our species. One of the novel findings that emerged in the author’s comprehensive review of turmeric is that it expresses over 150 distinct beneficial actions, describable in terms of traditional pharmacological pathways, e.g. interleukin-6 down-regulator, apoptotic, cyclooxygenase inhibitor, etc. During the indexing process the image emerged of a manyarmed Goddess, due to how diverse, intelligent and simultaneous are this spice’s healing gifts. In fact, from the perspective of monochemical-oriented pharmacology, a drug with more than 10 simultaneously therapeutic actions, and without the vast array of adverse, unintended side effects commonly associated with novel, patentable chemicals, turmeric

would represent an impossible, miraculous entity, which if patentable, would generate more revenue than all the blockbuster drugs on the market put together. After some reflection on the mass of data that accumulated on turmeric’s ability to alleviate suffering, the question emerged: are these many “evidence-based,” scientific studies really just exoteric descriptions of “compassion” and “intelligence”? Are we now rediscovering through the optic of modern science -- albeit through the reductionist and inherently animal sacrifice-based methodology of empirical science -- the “spirit” of herbs like turmeric, whose very existence represent a kind of surplus of benevolent, regenerative energy that permeates the universe, bestowing its grace upon its inhabitants/creations? Is this not what the ancients meant, or saw, when they described the spice in Sanskrit as “Gauri” (“The One Whose Face is Light and Shining”) and “Kanchani” (“Golden Goddess”)? Our turmeric database on GreenMedInfo.com (and by “our” I mean yours, as well, as this is an open source project) now contains the world’s largest archive of biomedical data on the subject of turmeric’s medical value, and includes voluminous research on turmeric’s potential to prevent and/or treat multi-drug resistant cancers, chronic degenerative conditions, neurological problems, depression, serious infections, as well as hundreds of other diseases. Please share this information with others, especially those who need an “evidence-bridge” connecting ancient healing wisdom with the modern scientific approach.
Miracle Drug of the 21st Century A
lthough cannabis (marijuana) was a medicinal plant for thousands of years, its use was suppressed and banned throughout most of the 20th century. Banned in England, Canada and the US in the 1930’s, medical cannabis represents the first casualty in the war against natural medicine waged by the pharmaceutical industry. While banned in the US, there have been major scientific breakthroughs in Israel, Spain, Italy and Brazil over the last two decades. These breakthroughs have made cannabis “the wonder drug of the 21st century”.
The Father of Medical Cannabis Research The greatest cannabis researcher is unquestionably Raphael Mechoulam from Israel. In 1964, Mechoulam discovered the active ingredient in cannabis, THC (TetraHydro-Cannabinol). In 1992, he discovered the first endogenous endo-cannabinoid, Anandamide, a sanskrit word translated as “bliss”. Endo-Cannabinoids are marijuanalike compounds made by our own brain, and circulate normally in your body.
A Treasure Trove Waiting for Discovery When asked why he devoted his entire lifetime studying the biochemistry of cannabis, Dr. Raphael Mechoulam said the following: “The three major illicit drugs derived from plants were then (at the beginning of my career), and still are, opium, coca and cannabis. Morphine had been isolated from opium early in the 19th century and structure elucidated in the 1920s by Robert Robinson. Cocaine was isolated from coca leaves in the middle of the 19th century and structure described by Richard Willstatter in the last decade of the 19th century. I believe that the cannabinoids represented a medicinal treasure trove which waits to be discovered.”
Just Like the Opiate Receptor Story In a story very similar to the discovery of opiate receptors in the brain, cannabinoid receptors have been discovered along with their endogenous cannabinoids, representing the largest neurotransmitter system in the brain and immune system. This neurotransmitter system went undetected for decades because it involves an unheard of concept, retrograde transmission, or reversed flow of information from the post synapse to the pre-synapse.
The Cannabinoid Receptor Story In the 1970s, Morphine was isolated from the poppy plant and found to bind to opiate receptors in the brain. Scientists eventually discovered that people make their own opioids, called enkephalins and endorphins. Morphine simply hijacks the receptors for the brain’s opioids. It seemed likely that something similar was happening with THC and the cannabinoid receptors in the brain and the immune system. The health implications of the endocannabinoid system are staggering. Cannabinoids act as a bioregulatory mechanism for most life processes.
Safety of Marijuana There has never been a documented human fatality from marijuana. The respiratory depression from opiates does not happen with cannabinoids. The active ingredient in cannabis is Cannabidiol, a Schedule I drug in the USA, despite having no psychoactive effects and no known abuse potential. Cannabidiol kills cancer cells, relieves pain, serves as an anti-depressant, and has numerous other medical uses. In the US, 13 states that have passed laws legalizing medicinal cannabis. You can join the movement to legalize the medicinal use of cannabis by calling, emailing or writing your congressman today.

Has Drug-Driven Medicine Become A Form of Human Sacrifice? by Sayer Ji GreenMedinfo.com
“Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution the time will come when medicine will organize itself into an undercover dictatorship. To restrict the art of healing to doctors and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic.” ~ Dr. Benjamin Rush, Signer of the Declaration of Independence
enjamin Rush accurately foretold a grave possibility facing Americans (And the World! - ED) today, namely, that the art and science of healing be restricted to a select class of allopathic physicians, who have the sole legal right to recommend and administer medicines, and whose pharmacopeia excludes – as a matter of principle – all the healing foods, vitamins and herbs which have been used safely and effectively for countless millennia in the prevention and treatment of disease. We have entered an era where medicine no longer bears any resemblance to the art and science of healing. The doctor no longer facilitates the body’s innate selfhealing capabilities with time, care, good nutrition and special help from our plant allies. To the contrary, medicine has transmogrified into a business enterprise founded on the inherently nihilistic principles of pure, unbridled capitalism, with an estimated 786,000 Americans dying annually from iatrogenic or medically-caused deaths.* ￼
Turning Disease Into Gold With The Drug-Based Printing Press
The “medicines” themselves are often devoid of intrinsic value, being nothing more than rebranded and re-purposed chemicals, intended (though all too often failing) to be administered in sub-lethal concentrations. Indeed, many of these chemicals are too toxic to be legally released into the environment, and should never be administered intentionally to a human who is already sick. You need look no farther than a typical drug package insert to find proof that the side effects of most drugs far outnumber their purported beneficial effects. These chemicals, in fact, are so highly leveraged against their true value (or lack thereof), that they can sell for as much as 500,000% percent from cost! Only medical/pharmaceutical and financial institutions (e.g. Federal Reserve) are legally empowered to generate the illusion that they are creating something of value out of nothing of value on this scale. This manipulation of perceived value, which is the basis for the global dominance of the drug-based medical model, is not unlike how financial institutions created toxic derivative products (e.g. Credit Default Swaps), essentially creating the illusion of financial wellbeing and prosperity, at the very moment that they were planting the seeds of death within the global economy; ruining the lives of countless millions in the process.
The Undercover Medical Dictatorship
Many modern diseases are, in fact, created by fiat (not unlike modern currencies): age-old symptoms of nutritional deficiency or chemical poisoning are repackaged and renamed in Latin and Greek as would-be monolithic disease entities, and subsequently rolled out to the consumer as new markets; each disease representing a veritable gold mine of “treatable” symptoms; each symptom providing justification for the prescription of a new set of patented, toxic drug-commodities.
Within our present dominant medical system, healing has not simply been forgotten but intentionally exorcized as it represents the antithesis of perpetual profitability which requires the incurability of the human body. Were the truth be told, and the body’s self-regenerative capabilities acknowledged, the entire superstructure of drug-based medicine and hundreds of billions of dollars in revenue it generates annually, would crumble overnight. When a handful of turmeric has more chemotherapeutic activity than any drug yet to receive FDA approval, or an enzyme from pineapple is superior to a 40 year old blockbuster chemotoxic agent, one begins to understand why the hundreds of studies proving natural substances can destroy cancer are never discussed. You can’t compete with free, effective and safe in a medical marketplace dominated by expensive, ineffective and unsafe drugs. If this degeneration into quackery and snake-oil salesmanship which is modern drug-driven medicine were simply a lesson in what bad things can happen when health care is no longer a basic human right but strictly a profit-driven commodity, perhaps Americans could find it within themselves to once again free themselves from the shackles of oppression. After all, do we not consider ourselves the very originators of freedom, independence and democracy? Have we not such great faith in these principles that we practically trip all over ourselves (crushing entire countries as we fall) in our Promethean effort to export these values overseas whether we are invited to
do so or not? Would we stand for less, when it comes to our own health freedom? Sadly, the “undercover dictatorship” Benjamin Rush foretold is not simply a homegrown one we can root out from the inside, as it were. Although the American Medical Association (AMA) and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) behave as if they are at the top of this pyramid of power relations, they serve far lower on the hierarchy. While the government of the United States and American corporate lobbying groups may appear to be behind the FDA’s shameless pandering to the interests of the drug companies, transnational corporations and organizations -- and a hand full of elite governing them -- are in fact pulling the strings. The United States no longer enjoys global economic and cultural hegemony. We are now embedded in an international playing field where multinational and transnational organizations like the drug company Pfizer, or the World Health Organization (WHO) and the World Trade Organization (WTO), have power and influence that overshadows the US or any other particular government or nation-state. These larger organizations blur the divisions traditionally drawn between public and private institutions, insofar as their agendas and mandates are consistent with global economic imperatives which do not account for the self-proclaimed sovereignty of any particular nationstate’s constitution or laws above its own. For example, the United States may soon no longer be able to allow the over-the-counter sale of many dietary supplements, due to our membership in the World Trade Organization and its ratification of the Codex Alimentarius. We already have prescription-only-vitamins on the US market, and a very dangerous precedent has already been set with the criminalization of herbs like cannabis, and more recently ephedra.
Pharmageddon: The Death of Natural Medicine What is so remarkable about the present state of affairs, is that it may have been predicted long ago, as evidenced by this passage in Revelations: “At the end of times the merchants of the world will deceive the nations through their Pharmacia.” (sorcery) - Rev 18:23 Some believe we are now on the precipice of a medical end-of-times or “Pharmageddon,” if you will, where medicine is no longer directly associated in any way with healing, rather, is a form of mass control and a highly organized means of defrauding the public of both its wealth and health, simultaneously. After all, is there any greater absurdity than a medical model that treats the symptoms of disease with sub-lethal dosages of toxic chemicals and in which there is no attempt to uncover, understand or remove the causes of those imbalances? After all, what disease has ever been found to be caused by a lack of a drug? Is acid reflux caused by a lack of proton-pump inhibitors? Is heart disease caused by a lack of statin drugs? Is osteoporosis caused by a lack of Fosamax? Is cancer caused by a lack of chemotherapy? Is depression caused by a lack of Paxil? Absolutely not! Then why would anyone consider it sound practice to use potentially toxic chemicals as a first-
line treatment for conditions that are not caused by a lack of a chemical? To the contrary many diseases are caused exactly by cumulative exposures to chemicals that not unlike drugs are biologically alien to the body. i.e we are treating poisoning with poisons! Can we dignify this approach by calling it medicine? Or, is it more accurately described as a form of sorcery? ￼
P-harm-aceuticals and Human Sacrifice
The sole reliance on Pharmaceuticals reveals quite a lot about the largely subconscious agenda underpinning modern medical practice. The Greek word Pharmakon has a wide range of meanings, with “drug” being the most widely recognized one. But the root of this word usage goes back much farther: “A Pharmakós (Greek: φαρμακός) in Ancient Greek religion was a kind of human scapegoat (a slave, a cripple or a criminal) who was chosen and expelled from the community at times of disaster (famine, invasion or plague) or at times of calendrical crisis, when purification was needed.” The sacrificial dimension of the Pharmakós carries on in the nostrums and potions later named after this ritualistic object: The term “pharmakos” later became the term “pharmakeus” which refers to “a drug, spell-giving potion, druggist, poisoner, by extension a magician or a sorcerer.” A variation of this term is “pharmakon” (φάρμακον) a complex term meaning sacrament, remedy, poison, talisman, cosmetic, perfume or intoxicant. From this, the modern term “pharmacology” emerged, Calling pharmaceutically-based medicine sacrificebased, is not just metaphor. Animal sacrifice, in fact, undergirds the entire evidence-based model of drug development and testing, requiring millions of animals be tortured and destroyed every year. In juxtaposition to Ayurveda, traditional Chinese medicine and countless other traditional, nature-based medical systems, which used living, healthy bodies as the model for preventing and treating disease in
the sick, Western medicine took another, quite radically different path in an obsession with pathology. The karma, if you will, of this divergent path often leads patients, especially later in life, to be cut open themselves on an operating table, or poisoned to death, with the very same chemicals and procedures that the animal testing once done in their name, justifies. The reality is that medical practice, and the science that informs it, is as much mythos as logos, and one no longer has to look to religion for the absolutist claim to truth. Medical science has laid claim to the body in the same way that religions once laid claim to the soul. The physician today -- albeit a glorified “applied pharmacologist” -- has become the “priest of the body,” capable of influencing the course of life or death by the quality, or combinations, of nostrums (s)he is able to apply to the problem (i.e. patient) at hand. Just as monotheism depends on there being “one God,” modern medical science depends on the “evidencebased” concept that there is one truth, and one right way to apply it. This, by implication, gives absolute power to those who would claim to know the difference. ￼
Liberation Through Natural Medicine
In Benjamin Rush’s time the medical dictatorship of which he spoke had not yet come to pass, and though magical potions like mercury and questionable techniques like bloodletting were used in colonial times, herbs were still considered and employed as legitimate medicines. Even if many wise women herbalists were eliminated as competition by being branded witches and sometimes murdered, the herbs themselves were not categorically demonized because no vast armoury of pharmaceutical drugs had yet been created to supplant them. The herbs and foods themselves have now been both vilified as dangerous and lampooned as completely ineffectual, generating the ridiculous contradiction that we are supposed to be dumb enough to accept as truth: namely, that they are both impotent and unsafe. Given these circumstances confidence in the safety
and efficacy of natural substances in the prevention and treatment of disease has not only waned, but the positive association between food and healing has been outright denied by medical authorities. It is illegal for non-doctors to make health claims for natural substances even if thousands of years of use in folk medicine and a vast emerging body of scientific research now confirms their benefits. You can’t say cherries cure gout even if it’s true. (Truth is no longer the criteria that decides what you can or cannot say). I started the website www.GreenMedInfo.com in August 2008 in order to provide free and convenient access to the massive amounts of research that have accumulated on the health benefits of natural substances over the past 50 years. The government database known as Medline (which is freely searchable) contains over 20 million biomedical citations from over 5,000 scientific journals, many of which focus specifically on the therapeutic action of foods, vitamins and spices on serious, even life-threatening disease. I believe that it is only through the free, uncensored and democratic dissemination of health information that we can secure our health freedom and through speaking truth to power, expose the fraud which is strictly profitdriven pharmaceutically-based medicine. Feel free to explore the 19000 + biomedical citations posted on www.GreenMedInfo.com that vindicate the safety and efficacy of natural substances in the prevention and treatment of disease. *Gary Null, PHD recently estimated that 786,000 Americans die annually from iatrogenic or medically caused deaths.
The Ancient Doctr By Richard Cassaro
he “Doctrine of Signatures” is profound ancient wisdom that is purposely being suppressed. It states that every fruit and vegetable has a certain pattern that resembles a body organ, and that this pattern acts as a signal or sign as to that fruit or vegetable’s benefit to us. Modern science confirms that the ancient Doctrine of Signatures is astoundingly accurate. Why does this vital knowledge remain hidden? The healing and nourishing properties of any fruit or vegetable reflected in, and ultimately revealed by, that fruit or vegetables’ outer physical shape, form, or “signature” in
relation to the human body. The Doctrine of Signatures may sound strange to us, but its wisdom is ancient, rediscovered in modern times. Of course, in modern America we’ve been taught by the big corporations to buy “processed foods,” rather than to buy local fresh vegetables and cook them ourselves. Americans have no time for cooking; most are busy working and consuming en masse, according to the messages drilled in by television, radio, newspaper, the news, culture, society.

However, by using this wisdom of the Doctrine of Signatures we can take more of a proactive

The Doctrine of Signatures was made popular in modern times by a Swiss physician, alchemist and philosopher named Paracelsus (1493-1541) who scholars consider to be the father of modern chemistry. Paracelsus noted how the qualities of plants are often reflected in their appearance. He thus theorized that the inner nature of plants may be discovered by their outer forms or “signatures.” He applied this principle to food as well as medicine, remarking that “it is not in the quantity of food

but in its quality that resides the Spirit of Life”—a belief familiar to those who choose to eat organic food while also being justifiably concerned over Genetically Modified substitutes that lack the “life force,” or spirit. The Doctrine of Signatures enjoyed a revival in the 1600s after Jakob Böhme (1575-1624), a master shoemaker in the small town of Görlitz, Germany, began writing on the subject. At 25 years old, he experienced a sublime mystical vision where he saw the true relationship between man and his Creator—that man is both the Creator and the Created.
Slice a Mushroom in half and it resembles a human ear. Mushrooms have been found to improve hearing, as mushrooms are one of the few foods that contain vitamin D. This particular vitamin is important for healthy bones, even the tiny ones in the ear that transmit sound to the brain.
Olives assist the health and function of the ovaries. Our lungs are made up of branches of ever-smaller airways that finish up with tiny bunches of tissue called alveoli. These structures, which resemble bunches of Grapes, allow oxygen to pass from the lungs to the blood stream. A diet high in fresh fruit, such as grapes, has been shown to reduce the risk of lung cancer and emphysema. Grape seeds also contain a chemical called proanthocyanidin, which appears to reduce the severity of asthma triggered by allergy.

Inter-Government Plan to Seize Control of All Foods by Marti Oakley
Both the US and Canada handed agricultural production in all its forms, over to international organizations and multi-national corporations.
hortly after “Dirty Harry” Reid passed the fake food safety bill in here in the US, with his one unanimous vote, C-36 passed two weeks later in Canada. Both bills were an outright attack on individual rights and property rights as both governments claim they now have the authority to unilaterally decide who can grow, process and sell foods and under what conditions. And, just as here in the US, those lawmakers responsible for this attack on liberty claimed they did so because that was what the public demanded and was begging for. ￼ Actually, in both countries just the opposite was true; the public was demanding that these bills not be passed. Dirty Harry claimed that more than 10,000 people had begged him to pass the bill while never mentioning that more than a million had objected. But in neither case was food safety and security the real intent of the legislation. Both the US and Canada were handing agricultural production in all its forms, over to international organizations and multi-national corporations. A sample of the unconstitutional restrictions included in bill C-36 include: • •
abolishing protection from trespass, a court-ordered warrant, and the need for court-supervised search and seizure. on ONLY suspicion, health inspectors with the aid of police can invade any location in the country, seize and confiscate goods deemed unsafe (i.e. health supplements) and violate all constitutional rights of all parties involved. it bypasses existing laws on privacy and confidentiality and explicitly exempts the Minister of Health and government inspectors from any kind of thirdparty oversight and accountability. Note: In the US the Secretary of Health & Human Services and any of her delegates were given the same immunity, and US citizens were denied their right to access the courts for redress. the need to publish regulations governing the activities of the inspectors is abolished. accused individuals have their access to the courts seriously limited, even the assumption of innocence is gone as violators are considered guilty until proven innocent with no recourse to any court of law. astronomical fines are to be handed out for crimes committed on the Minister’s assumption of guilt which requires no supporting evidence for indepen-
dent examination. even the corporate shield would disappear, because corporate directors would be legally liable for the actions of their employees -; which actions would be deemed criminal solely on the opinion of the Minister, not by the courts. Note: The US fake food safety bill differs in that it intentionally relieves corporations and most especially their employees and officers of any liability, allowing them to hide behind the corporate entity. allows foreign governments and institutions, like CODEX and the World Trade Organization, to have the same powers over Canadians in all these matters outlined above, as if they were part of our own government.
Here in the US, with our government officials openly advocating and soliciting for multi-national corporate takeover of food production and supply and with opposition to this takeover marginalized and ignored, we have little chance of effectively thwarting the assault on agricultural production that is looming in the future. Canada appears to be following suit and is subjecting its citizens to World Trade Organization rules and regulations and openly advocating the takeover of food production in all its forms by industrialized operations which are more than willing to keep HSD and its corrupt partnering agencies awash in contracted funding. Money talks and in our government agencies and offices it is virtually the only voice that is listened to. Homeland Security, that bastion of domestic spies, paranoid fanatics and otherwise unemployable misfits has now come out with what it terms “natural security”. Under this umbrella of a newly created faux security system, food is now determined to be “at risk” and must be protected by arbitrary rules, regulations and oppressive enforcement because otherwise agricultural terrorists from parts unknown, neither identified nor identifiable, might somehow contaminate our food. Never mind that our food is constantly contaminated by bio-piracy outfits in their efforts to seize and control through highly suspect patented ownership of virtually anything and everything we might wish to eat. Natural Security is a fictionally created model meant to do nothing other than to make HSD interference and meddling in food production seem to be somehow plausible. The US fake food safety bill also added in its last pages the admonishment that nothing in the bill would interfere with World Trade Organization demands or agreements nor could it interfere with any free trade agreements present or future and also makes clear that WTO demands would supersede our laws and sovereignty. With Canada now in line with US laws facilitating the takeover and control of food supply and production, it comes as no surprise that New Zealand, a highly productive agricultural economy, is next in line.
US to Start ‘Trade Wars’ with Nations Opposed to Monsanto, GMO Crops by Anthony Gucciardi ActivistPost.com
he United States is threatening nations who oppose Monsanto’s genetically modified (GM) crops with military-style trade wars, according to information obtained and released by the organization WikiLeaks. Nations like France, which have moved to ban one of Monsanto’s GM corn varieties, were requested to be ‘penalized’ by the United States for opposing Monsanto and genetically modified foods. The information reveals just how deep Monsanto’s roots have penetrated key positions within the United States government, with the cables reporting that many U.S. diplomats work directly for Monsanto. The WikiLeaks cable reveals that in late 2007, the United States ambassador to France and business partner to George W. Bush, Craig Stapleton, requested that the European Union along with particular nations that did not support GMO crops be penalized. Stapleton, who coowned the Dallas/Fort Worth-based Texas Rangers baseball team with Bush in the 1990s, stated: “Country team Paris recommends that we calibrate a target retaliation list that causes some pain across the EU since this is a collective responsibility, but that also focuses in part on the worst culprits. The list should be measured rather than vicious and must be sustainable over the long term, since we should not expect an early victory. Moving to retaliation will make clear that the current path has real costs to EU interests and could help strengthen European pro-biotech voices.”

GM Foods Touted “Benefits” are Actually False Claims by Andre Evans
enetically Modified foods are prominently featured in today’s food supply. In fact, GMOs are so prominent that if a product is not labeled as GMO free, then it can be assumed that there is at least some amount of genetic alteration within the food. GMOs dominate conventional food supplies and popular products, perpetuating their adverse effects on the people who eat them. Before the whistle was blown on the dangers of GM foods, like any other invariably unpopular thing pushed by corporations, claims were that GMOs could actually be beneficial to the food supply, and provide positive value. But how legitimate are any of these claims?
“GM Crops Require Less Herbicide/Pesticide Usage” Pesticide toxicity is an obvious concern when dealing with crops. Gene tailoring the crops into producing a pesticide theoretically means that you should have to use less. However, the effectiveness of this method diminishes when insects build an immunity to the pesticide being genetically engineered. This actually creates a need for more additional and more varied application of pesticides to crops, destroying the initial premise that using GM to
NaturalSociety.com produce pesticides would lessen their application overall.
“GM Foods Will Help Provide for Poor Starving Populations” One could argue that the use of GMOs provides more opportunities to give food to the poor, despotic countries. However, genetic engineering of food is often an expensive and extensive process. The application of genetically altered seeds used by farmers also poses a threat to the integrity of a whole environmental food supply. As GMO crops spread, they can easily contaminate surrounding crops that are free of engineering, producing adverse effects. Some crops engineered with ‘terminator’ genes actually cause the seeds of the next generation to be rendered sterile. This would actually limit the ability for any kind of farmer to reliably produce food in cycles, unless they can afford to buy more seeds from a company providing them. “GM Foods are Normal Foods, Cause no Threat to Your Health, and Can Even be Nutritionally Enhanced” Various studies suggest that consuming any amount
of GMOs lead to a number of adverse side effects, ranging from organ failure, to infertility. The nature of attempting to manipulate genetic boundaries produces an uncontrollable amount of anomalies, all of which diminish the quality and purpose originally intended for the food. Essential nutrients can be rendered ineffective, and the mutagenic nature of genetic tampering can actually destroy any of the benefits that the foods originally held. In actuality, it’s better to entirely abstain from the use and advocation of any form of genetic modification on foods. The so-called benefits are actually non existent, and the nature of the situation actually threatens the integrity of the world food supply. Genetic tampering opens a figurative Pandora’s box of unforeseen consequences, including the contamination of nutritionally sound foods. The safety of our food supply must be maintained by foregoing the use of GMOs, and preserving the purity of organically farmed, nutritionally satisfying fruits and vegetables. Being a part of the solution is as easy as refusing to use any GM foods, and maintaining your own form of clean and sustainable produce. Like many countries now are deciding to reject these foods, you also have an individual opportunity to secure your own health by doing the same.

The Leaked Political Agenda Behind Monsanto’s GMO Crops The ambassador plainly calls for ‘target retaliation’ against nations who are against using Monsanto’s genetically modified corn, admittedly linked to organ damage and environmental devastation. Amazingly, this is not an isolated case. In similar newly released cables, United States diplomats are found to have pushed GMO crops as a strategic government and commercial imperative. Furthermore, the U.S. specifically targeted advisers to the Pope, due to the fact that many Catholic bishops and figureheads have openly denounced GMO crops. In fact, the Vatican has openly declared Monsanto’s GMO crops as a ‘new form of slavery’. ‘A Martino deputy told us recently that the cardinal had co-operated with embassy Vatican on biotech over the past two years in part to compensate for his vocal disapproval of the Iraq war and its aftermath – to keep relations with the USG [US government] smooth. According to our source, Martino no longer feels the need to take this approach,’ says the cable. Perhaps the most shocking piece of information exposed by the cables is the fact that these U.S. diplomats are actually working directly for biotech corporations like Monsanto. The cables also highlight the relationship between the U.S. and Spain in their conquest to persuade other nations to allow for the expansion of GMO crops. Not only did the Spanish government secretly correspond with the U.S. government on the subject, but the U.S. government actually knew beforehand how Spain would vote before the Spanish biotech commission reported their decision regarding GMO crops. The cable states: ‘In response to recent urgent requests by [Spanish rural affairs ministry] state secretary Josep Puxeu and Monsanto, post requests renewed US government support of Spain’s science-based agricultural biotechnology position through high-level US government intervention.’ Monsanto has undoubtedly infiltrated the United States government in order to push their health-endangering agenda, and this has been known long before the release of these WikiLeaks cables. The U.S. is the only place where Monsanto’s synthetic hormone Posilac is still used in roughly 1/3 of all cows, with 27 nations banning the substance over legitimate health concerns. Despite Monsanto’s best attempts at incognito political corruption, nothing can stop the grassroots anti-Monsanto movement that is taking over cities and nations alike.

BEAUTY & STYLE
We know it when we see it and yet it’s different for everyone. Style is individuality’s signature. One of the spices of life. Beauty surround us and is our natural state nourishing us through and through. Well worth the cultivation, the appreciation, the celebration.
hen I bring to mind an image that represents the modern woman I see a sharp, ruthless and driven character who not only seeks to prove herself in the workplace but also juggles household duties with finesse, delight and dedication. In fact she appears to embody more masculine characteristics than feminine. Now this is just my internal idea of what a woman is suppose to be in this day and age. When I look around woman are still being the beautiful beings that they have always been. Their feminine qualities remain very much in the forefront. So what is an image and how does that effect us? Not so long ago the ideal woman was the perfect housewife catering entirely to her family’s needs. She would dress up each day, make sure the house was neat and tidy and that dinner was served precisely at 6:00. Gender roles were well defined, whereas now they are a blur. Naturally, women are inclined to nurture the warmth in their homes, while giving birth to new life and playing a supportive role to the men who care for them. Which is a lot already! In addition to this women are now expected to seek career satisfaction and show fierce independence in a world where we are actually at our best when helping one another. Don’t get me wrong, equal rights for all are essential, but I am more interested in seeing how in certain environments we ask the modern woman to be strong and asser-

tive, self directed and ruthless, and in others it is expected that she be soft and seductive, nurturing and supportive. The trick being I suppose to bounce back and forth within oneself given the situation at hand, since we each have these classic male/female characteristics inside of us. But of course this is tricky, and requires flexibility and knowledge of what is required in the moment. As many of us tend to be dominant and comfortable in one direction or the other, gaining access to the spectrum of qualities available to us becomes incredibly important. I recognize in myself that somewhere along the lines I adopted an idea of what a woman is. That idea integrated itself into my belief structure and now informs me on a constant basis. The problem comes in when I find myself only able to access some of the skills available to me, which of course are the ones that fit into my personal definition of being a woman. So then I can only conclude that my personal definition is no longer serving me, and in this world leaves me in a lurch on certain occasions. I realize what I am required to do is examine my current beliefs only to reformulate my vision of what a modern woman can be. The exciting thing is that there doesn’t need to be any set idea any longer. Woman have already broken down many of the external definitions of how a woman defines herself, leaving it up to us to decide what feels authentic and true. We get to choose the woman we wish to be. How very modern!

Canadian Medical Association Journal Blasts Japanese Government by Lauren Vogel
ublic health fallout from Japanese quake. Originally published as a news article in the Canadian Medical Association Journal (CMAJ) December 21, 2011. Reprinted with permission. Written by Lauren Vogel of CMAJ quoting medical experts, the article states: • The Japanese government has been “lying through their teeth” ever since the March 11 accident; • The Japanese government hasn’t disclosed enough information for the citizens to make informed decision, with “extreme lack of transparent, timely and comprehensive communication”; • The response to the Fukushima nuclear disaster by the Japanese government is far worse than the response to the Chernobyl accident by the Soviet Union government; • The annual radiation exposure limit for the general pub-
Public health fallout from Japanese quake
lic of 20 millisieverts is “unconscionable”, and there has been no government “in recent decades that’s been willing to accept such a high level of radiation-related risk for its population” The article is literally trashing the Japanese government. Quite a contrast to certain international organizations who praise the Japanese government at every opportunity. But in fact, the second point above is in violation of one of the ICRP’s recommendations which says the residents should be made aware and understand the radiation risk fully before giving consent to the government policy. Further, the article quotes Dr. Kozo Tatara of the Japan Public Health Association, who revealed a difficult position his government was in at a meeting in Washington DC in November, by saying:
“It’s very difficult to persuade people that the level [of exposure set by the government] is okay” Still, one expert interviewed for the article seems to think it’s still not too late to evacuate: “The single most important public health measure to minimize the health harm over the long term is much wider evacuation” Quite a contrast to the Japan Association of Obstetricians and Gynecologists that issued an official statement back on March 19, declaring “It is safe if you are 30 kilometers away from the plant, the information from the national government is accurate, there is no negative health effect on embryos, fetuses, babies and small children if the cumulative radiation is 100 millisieverts and below”.
“culture of coverup” and inadequate cleanup efforts have combined to leave Japanese people exposed to “unconscionable” health risks nine months after last year’s meltdown of nuclear reactors at the Fukushima Dai-ichi power plant, health experts say. Although the Japanese government has declared the plant virtually stable, some experts are calling for evacuation of people from a wider area, which they say is contaminated with radioactive fallout. They’re also calling for the Japanese government to reinstate internationally-approved radiation exposure limits for members of the public and are slagging government officials for “extreme lack of transparent, timely and comprehensive communication.” But temperatures inside the Fukushima power station’s three melted cores have achieved a “cold shutdown condition,” while the release of radioactive materials is “under control,” according to the International Atomic Energy Agency (www.iaea.org/newscenter/news/2011/ coldshutdown.html). That means government may soon allow some of the more than 100 000 evacuees from the area around the plant to return to their homes. They were evacuated from the region after it was struck with an 8.9 magnitude earthquake and a tsunami last March 11. Although the potential for further explosions with substantial releases of radioactivity into the atmosphere is certainly reduced, the plant is still badly damaged and leaking radiation, says Tilman Ruff, chair of the Medical Association for Prevention of Nuclear War, who visited the Fukushima prefecture in August. “There are major issues of contamination on the site. Aftershocks have been continuing and are expected to continue for many months, and some of those are quite large, potentially causing further damage to structures that are already unstable and weakened. And we know that there’s about 120 000 tons of highly contaminated water in the base of the plant, and there’s been significant and ongoing leakage into the ocean.” The full extent of contamination across the country is even less clear, says Ira Hefland, a member of the board of directors for Physicians for Social Responsibility. “We still don’t know exactly what radiation doses people were exposed to [in the immediate aftermath of the disaster] or what ongoing doses people are being exposed to. Most of the information we’re getting at this point is a series of
contradictory statements where the government assures the people that everything’s okay and private citizens doing their own radiation monitoring come up with higher readings than the government says they should be finding.” Japanese officials in Tokyo have documented elevated levels of cesium — a radioactive material with a half-life of 30 years that can cause leukemia and other cancers — more than 200 kilometres away from the plant, equal to the levels in the 20 kilometre exclusion zone, says Robert Gould, another member of the board of directors for Physicians for Social Responsibility. International authorities have urged Japan to expand the exclusion zone around the plant to 80 kilometres but the government has instead opted to “define the problem out of existence” by raising the permissible level of radiation exposure for members of the public to 20 millisieverts per year, considerably higher than the international standard of one millisievert per year, Gould adds. This “arbitrary increase” in the maximum permissible dose of radiation is an “unconscionable” failure of government, contends Ruff. “Subject a class of 30 children to 20 millisieverts of radiation for five years and you’re talking an increased risk of cancer to the order of about 1 in 30, which is completely unacceptable. I’m not aware of any other government in recent decades that’s been willing to accept such a high level of radiation-related risk for its population.” Following the 1986 nuclear disaster at the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in the Ukraine, “clear targets were set so that anybody anticipated to receive more than five millisieverts in a year were evacuated, no question,” Ruff explains. In areas with levels between one and five millisieverts, measures were taken to mitigate the risk of ingesting radioactive materials, including bans on local food consumption, and residents were offered the option of relocating. Exposures below one millisievert were still considered worth monitoring. In comparison, the Japanese government has implemented a campaign to encourage the public to buy produce from the Fukushima area, Ruff added. “That response [in Chernobyl] 25 years ago in that much less technically sophisticated, much less open or democratic context, was, from a public health point of view, much more responsible than what’s being done in modern Japan this year.” Were Japan to impose similar strictures, officials would have to evacuate some 1800 square kilometres and impose restrictions on food produced in another 11 100 square kilometres, according to estimates of the contamination presented by Dr. Kozo Tatara for the Japan Public
Health Association at the American Public Health Association’s 139th annual meeting and exposition in November in Washington, District of Columbia. “It’s very difficult to persuade people that the level [of exposure set by the government] is okay,” Tatara told delegates to the meeting. He declined requests for an interview. The Japanese government is essentially contending that the higher dose is “not dangerous,” explains Hefland. “However, since the accident, it’s become clear the Japanese government was lying through its teeth, doing everything it possible could to minimize public concern, even when that meant denying the public information needed to make informed decisions, and probably still is.” “It’s now clear they knew within a day or so there had been a meltdown at the plant, yet they didn’t disclose that for weeks, and only with great prodding from the outside,” Hefland adds. “And at the same moment he was assuring people there was no public health disaster, the Prime Minister now concedes that he thought Tokyo would have to be evacuated but was doing nothing to bring that about.” Ruff similarly charges that the government has mismanaged the file and provided the public with misinformation. As an example, he cites early reports that stable iodine had been distributed to children and had worked effectively, when, “in fact, iodine wasn’t given to anyone.” Public distrust is at a level that communities have taken cleanup and monitoring efforts into their own hands as the government response to the crisis has been “woefully inadequate” and officials have been slow to respond to public reports of radioactive hotspots, Gould says. “That’s led to the cleanup of some affected areas, but there are also reports of people scattering contaminated soil willy-nilly in forests and areas surrounding those towns.” “In some places, you can see mounds of contaminated soil that have just been aggregated under blue tarps,” he adds. Even with government assistance, there are limits to the decontamination that can be achieved, explains Hefland. “What do you do with the stuff? Do you scrape entire topsoil? How far down you have to go? And if you wash down the buildings, what do you do with the waste water?” As well, Ruff argues the government must examine the provision of compensation for voluntary evacuation from areas outside of the exclusion zone where there are high levels of radioactive contamination. Without such compensation, many families have no option but to stay, he says. “At this point, the single most important public health measure to minimize the health harm over the long term is much wider evacuation.”
The Japanese government did not respond to inquiries. Regarding the iodine tablets, there was one town in Fukushima Prefecture (Miharu-machi) whose mayor distributed them and ordered the residents to swallow right away. He was severely ridiculed and criticized in Japan at that time for “fear-mongering”. Regarding withholding the information from the public, the Japanese government went one step further, and using
the mass media went on a campaign to smear and discredit anyone who dare said inconvenient things like “Fukushima reactors had meltdowns”, or “Don’t go outside today because the rain may be radioactive”, or “Theft and robbery on the increase in the evacuated areas”. They all later proved to be true. The reactors had meltdowns, the rain was radioactive, and robbers, braving the radiation, plundered many homes of evacuees in the evacuation zones.
And the readers of this blog know what kind of “compensation” the Noda government is thinking about for Fukushima residents, thanks to Minister Yukio “there is no immediate health effect” Edano. Fukushima residents may get gift certificates usable only in Fukushima, so they can help revive the economy and industry inside Fukushima. How much more cynical can you get? A whole lot more, looking at Japan’s leaders.

It is a Crime to Pay Tax
t is a crime to pay tax. This statement may, at first, appear improbable, yet it is true. The truth of it is embedded firmly in international law, and this law is explicit and unequivocal. At the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal it was stated that ‘individuals have international duties’ which transcend allegiance to their individual nation state. This makes it clear that each citizen has a responsibility to ensure their own personal conduct does not breach international law which overrides the laws of their own governments. Let’s look at what these laws are: in 1950, the United Nations enacted the seven universal laws of war known as the Nuremberg Principles, principle six of which clearly defines the crimes which are ‘punishable under international law’: crimes against peace, war crimes, and crimes against humanity. These joined the offence of genocide as the world’s worst crimes. ‘Crimes Against Peace’ specifically prohibits ‘wars of aggression’ the definition of which our ‘interventions’ in Iraq, Afghanistan and Libya clearly satisfy. By deploying high-explosive weapons which they knew would cause massive death and destruction our leaders demonstrated intent and so are guilty of war crimes. In 1998, after fifty years of illegal wars in breach of the Nuremberg Principles, 132 states, in an attempt to block the loopholes allowing nations to commit these crimes with impunity, drew up the Rome Statute of the International
Criminal Court. Article 25 of the Rome Statute states that a person is criminally liable who ‘aids, abets or assists’ in the commission of such a crime ‘including providing the means for its commission.’ This statement is crucial; state sponsored wars such as those waged against Afghanistan, Iraq and Libya can only be fought with the consent of a majority of the citizens, specifically through gathering their taxes. Governments cannot wage war without the money to buy weapons, pay troops or purchase supplies. Without the support of taxpayers and moneylenders war would be impossible. Taxpayers who fund illegal war commit a war crime. Your duty is clear then, as a citizen whose taxes are being used to commit war crimes you are committing those same crimes. The only way to avoid liability is to withhold your taxes, by doing so you will be upholding the law. But is this only about stark legalities? Do we not
also have moral duties which impel us to act? Significantly, in this case, the law takes into account your conscience: Nuremberg Principle number four states that even if a person acts under the orders of their government this ‘does not relieve him from responsibility under international law, provided a moral choice was in fact possible to him’. Let us then ponder that in ten years NATO and ISAF governments have caused the deaths of 800,000 adults and 400,000 children, injured three million people and driven eight million into exile and destitution. These very real human beings - are they worthy of your moral consideration? International law says yes. What do you say?
Dazed Lemmings Can't Bridge The Reality Gap BeforeItsNews.com
by Zen Gardner
ver wonder why people can’t make the leap to real awareness of what’s going on? Why do so few people seem to care about the dangers of the unreported radiation levels and toxic debris washing across the pacific? How is it no one but local residents raise the alarm about the horrific effects of the Gulf oil spill and the poisonous seafood landing on American dinner tables? As the Orwellian American police state sweeps into place, the economy crumbles, and their faultless leader languishes on a Hawaiian beach, Americans are preparing to celebrate their entry into a brave new 2012 with minimal awareness of the true dangers already dissolving their health, wealth and chances for survival in an engineered conflagration of mythic proportions that is already descending on their heads. ￼
Sensory Overload and the Ostrich Effect
As the gap between reality and manipulated public perception grows, it may just be too big a leap for many at this point. Having been dumbed-down and unresponsive for so long, it’s too much for them to take in. Sad, but again, that’s reality. Hey, why wake up when everything’s such a bummer? That’s the underlying mentality. The thing is, this is a conditioned response. Overload and recoil. And it’s been going on a long, long time. Why? Like the dumbing down effect of fluoride and chemtrails and adulterated food, it eventually suppresses natural responses. When the real alert presents itself, the subject will not be able to react and protect himself. Why all the dramatic end of the world sci-fi movies? Why the emphasis on violence and horror movies and
graphic, destructive wars? Why does the news major on the bad events of the day? Why the combative gladiator sports, emphasis on technology instead of humanity, and mind-numbing crass consumerism and sexualization of society? This is deliberate social engineering, and that’s the biggie. It’s all engineered..and that’s the last thing most people want to realize. And it usually is.
The Power of Cognitive Dissonance The world has become essentially schizophrenic in outlook. Being told one thing while the exact opposite is happening before their eyes for so long, the “dissonance” created by this conflict causes humanity to shut down. America is the perfect example. Ostensibly fighting for “freedom and liberty” we commit genocide and destroy nation after nation. To protect our liberties the government has overturned the Bill of Rights and made the Constitution a mockery. Yet the populace sits and takes it. Why? Too big of a leap. If it turned out they’ve been completely conned by a massive manipulated agenda they may just completely break down. And subconsciously the horror of that reality is therefore a “no”. Even if it were true they’re at the point they’d rather not know. ￼
I’ll Take Conscious Reality
“Why all the negativity?” is what you’ll hear a lot of the time when you bring these things up. The answer, as David Icke often says, is that ignorance is negative. Truth is empowering, no matter how awful it may be sometimes. And at this point in history the more you learn the more negative it may seem, with the Controllers’ agenda in full final-phase swing. But so what. Things haven’t changed all that much. The purpose of life is to rediscover who you truly are, and that wonderful awakening makes everything else pale in comparison. Our mission then becomes to inform and empower, share and encourage. The same one it always has been. That it’s taking this kind of extreme compression to awaken the slumbering masses is really no surprise, and ultimately a gift from the Universe to help people back into the real world.....that of conscious loving awareness. Awaken from slumber, one and all...
U.S. Descends into Planned Financial Implosion that Favours Corporate Elite by Mike Adams (Editor`s Note-Government of Canada is following similarly deceitful financial practices.)
e live in interesting times. Even as our own civilization hangs on the precipice of financial solvency, the priorities of the uninformed masses as so distorted that many will actually camp out in front of a Best Buy store in order to be the first in line to save $100 on a big-screen TV. In a time when the very problems of society are rooted in over-consumption and too much television, the everyday plebs place such high importance on expanding the size of their mainstream media hypnosis devices that they will physically fight each other to get one of these TVs at a slightly lower price. Meanwhile, the federal debt has plunged past $15 trillion, the freedoms and liberties upon which America built its economic strength are fast eroding, and the U.S. has practically entered a fighting war with Pakistan. Pay no mind to any of that, friends. Wal-Mart has teflon-coated waffle makers on sale for two bucks off!
Sleight-of-mind distractions Meanwhile, the 2012 presidential election races are under way, and the mainstream media seems determined to catapult anyone into the White House as long as his name isn’t Ron Paul. The last thing the globalist controllers really want is someone who dares to tell the People the truth about topics that matter -- the Federal Reserve, national debt, foreign wars, the Bill of Rights and more. Presidents are supposed to be entertainers and distracters, didn’t you know? When a nation’s collision with financial reality is all but inescapable, that nation inevitably turns to bread and circuses. And so sleight-of-mind distractions invite the masses to invest their attention in dancing with the stars, lusting after the latest electronics gadgets, and tuning in to staged news footage from the front lines of the fabricated “war on terror” where U.S. troops are now openly engaged in the planting, harvesting and protecting of the opium trade in Afghanistan. You can talk about anything you want in America, it seems, as long as it’s not the Bill of Rights, or buying something with cash, or exercising your Free Speech rights -- because all of those things are now considered signs of being a suspected terrorist.
Layers of deceit The most astonishing thing about it all is how many layers of wool have been pulled over the eyes of the American people, most of whom suffer under the illusion that they still live in a “free” country. Where to begin in educating people about this? First, there’s the engineered “war on terror” which was entirely invented, carried out and sold to the American people as a way to justify more war spending and the stripping away of fundamental human rights. Then there’s the economic quackery taking place right under our noses as the Federal Reserve -- a private corporation that answers to no one -- has been quietly and deliberately stealing America’s wealth for nearly a hundred years. Following the money is simply too difficult for mainstream Americans, who are unable to grasp how purchasing power is deliberately stolen from them through the dilution of the money supply. You’re never supposed to get ahead, don’t you know? A common wage earner can no more save money and make it into the ranks of the ultra wealthy than a frog can transform into a magical unicorn. That’s because a small percentage of your wealth -- everything you’ve worked for -- is stolen from you year after year, much like the way in which rain erodes a pile of sand that you might have stacked and shoveled into a mound. The economic deceit is designed to keep you enslaved; to keep you working for the globalist corporations that pocket the profits of your labors -- and usually tax-free! Two examples: Bank of America pays NO taxes, and General Motors also runs a sweet offshore tax shelter structure that
NaturalNews.com makes it virtually immune to paying taxes at all. Meanwhile, YOU are taxed when you earn (payroll taxes, paid by your employer), taxed when you save (capital gains taxes) and taxed when you spend (sales taxes). You’re even taxed when you just sit on a pile of money and do nothing (monetary devaluation / price inflation). And remarkably, some of the more ignorant members of society have been out protesting, calling for more taxes on the People as a “solution” to all this! No, my friends. We do not need more taxes on the People. In fact, let me explain something to you that will absolutely astonish you once you grasp the simple truth of it:
The U.S. government needs NO TAX MONEY whatsoever to operate! How’s that? You’ve all been told the government needs a few trillion dollars a year in tax revenues to build bombs, make roads, pay social security benefits and the like, right? It is the Great Lie of our time. Allow me to explain... The idea that the U.S. government needs us to send it our money is rooted in the false assumption that the government cannot simply create the money it wants to spend. And yet, we all now know that to be false. For example, in October 2008 during the first investment banker crisis, the U.S. government (via the Federal Reserve) simply created nearly $1 trillion and handed that money over to the richest, filthiest banksters on the planet. Where did this money come from? Think about it. Did you send in some cash to help with this bailout? Of course not. The money was created out of thin air by the U.S. Treasury working in conspiracy with the Federal Reserve. And that wasn’t even the end of it: Between 2008 and 2011, the U.S. government conspired with the Federal Reserve to create trillions more -- in what can only be called “counterfeit” money -- and then hand it over to the world’s wealthiest corporations, banks and institutions. According to the New York Times, the U.S. government has now committed $12.2 trillion to these institutions. Okay, so where is all this money coming from? Did the U.S. government ask every taxpayer to send in a check to cover this $12 trillion? Nope, because that would have required each American man, woman and child to pay $40,000 just to cover it. That obviously didn’t happen, so where did this money come from?
The government just CREATED the money out of thin air Here’s the kicker in all this: The government could be creating money right now to end the entire federal tax system so that no American citizen would ever need to pay tax again. The tax code, after all, was originally created only to tax corporations, not the People. Yet today it’s the wealthiest corporations that are paying no tax while the People are being bankrupted by it. So the government, you see, could simply create the few trillion dollars it needs each year to pay for defense spending (bombs and bullets), interest on the debt, social security, Medicare, etc. And that means the government technically doesn’t need YOUR tax dollars at all! Now, of course, it would be financial suicide for the government to keep creating trillions of dollars each year, thereby eroding the purchasing power of the dollar and resulting in price inflation across the nation -- but it’s doing that anyway! In other words, the government is already CREATING trillions of dollars in new money, year after year, solely for the benefit of the wealthy banksters and global corporate giants. So if the government is already headed into total financial insolvency (runaway debt increases combined with an upcoming currency collapse) -- why not use this suicidal process to help the People for
a while instead of just bailing out the wealthy corporations? Imagine this: The IRS announces a cancellation of the personal income tax. You no longer have to file on April 15th. You can keep all the money you’ve earned, other than state income taxes. Can you imagine the economic boom that would result? People who earn more will spend more, thereby unleashing a domino effect of new job creation across the economy. People would be happier, stress would be lowered, and we would probably see a reduction in heart attacks and suicides, too. The federal government, meanwhile, would simply create a couple of trillion dollars each year to fund its own budgetary needs, and we could all ride this insane financial monster into the ground together while at least avoiding the hassle of filling out a stack of income tax paperwork every April. There’s no question, you see, that the U.S. government is headed into total financial insolvency. I’m just saying that as long as we’re headed that way, we should be bailing out the People instead of bailing out the rich banksters and wealthy corporations. Why not cancel the income tax next April 15th and announce an income tax bailout for the working people? Don’t you see that the bankster bailouts are the most obscene example of crony capitalism? The money goes to the insider pals while the debt burden is heaped upon the working poor. That’s the real problem with America -- not capitalism, but criminality!
The real purpose of the income tax it’s not what you think So if the tax code is not needed to generate money for the government, what is its purpose, you ask? The purpose of the federal tax code is to keep you down, to keep your face buried in the dirt so that you can never rise up and “get ahead.” The purpose is not to fund the federal government itself, as you’ve been told. The government has already proven it can create trillions of dollars when it really wants to. So remember that as you’re out spending your after-tax dollars this holiday season. Most of what you have been told by conventional, mainstream sources is pure fabrication: The War on Terror, the “danger” of marijuana, the “right” of the government to reach down your pants at the airport, and of course the “need” for you to “contribute” to the government to pay for roads and schools. It’s all so hilariously fictional that we should all be rolling on the floor laughing about it if we weren’t already writhing from the pain of writing all those checks to the government. Taxes, you see, are really just a financial shakedown. They are an exercise of thuggish government power over the common people for no purpose than to remind the People they are slaves to the state. And for that purpose, federal taxes are very, very effective. Much like the fictional War on Terror, the IRS reminds everybody to “be afraid” and comply. And it works. Even I comply with the federal tax code and dutifully pay what seems to be far too much to the federal government every single year. The difference is that I know it’s all a silly game and has nothing whatsoever to do with actually funding government operations. So I pay, and I chuckle, and I continue to work toward the day when we may see the rise of social justice in America where the money supply is honest, the corporations are stripped of their fictional “rights,” and everyone shares equally in the funding of running a smaller government whose main function is to protect and preserve the rights of the People... not to rule over them like tyrants. As you spend money this year, I encourage you to look at that money in an enlightened way and realize the deeper truth of where money comes from, how it is created, and how government use money confiscation (and devaluation) to weaken the economic power of the People while concentrating it in the hands of the few.
End of Nations: Canada, the US and the Security Perimeter by James Corbett CorbettReport.com
hen Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and US President Barack Obama announced the much-anticipated border agreement between the two countries at a press conference in Washington last week, those mainstream media outlets that bothered to cover the story at all compensated for the lack of details about what specifically is going to be accomplished by this accord by focusing on issues of no practical significance. The Globe and Mail, for example, ran an entire article about how Harper and Obama’s personal “friendship” allegedly effected the deal, which was in reality and admittedly struck by bureaucrats in months of closed-door negotiations. A variety of trade magazines and corporate websites released vague laudatory statements about the “streamlining” of the border. But the story itself, which generated few headlines at all in the American media, was not about what specifically will change at the border so much as the border is increasingly being redefined as just one part of a broader security perimeter that in fact encompasses both the US and Canada. The agreement in fact comprises two so-called “action plans,” one entitled Beyond The Border and the other the Regulatory Cooperation Council. The former plan focuses on border security with the explicit aim of creating a security perimeter that encompasses both countries. The latter is meant to harmonize regulations for business, facilitating cross-border trade. The security agreement uses the threat of terrorism, crime and health securities to announce an increasing merger of the two countries’ border security, including an integrated entry-exit system that will involve full sharing of individuals’ biometric details between the two governments by 2014 and even the creation of integrated crossborder law enforcement teams with authority to collect intelligence and conduct criminal investigations on either side of the border. The regulatory plan, meanwhile, aims to standardize agricultural regulations on such items as maximum pesticide residue limits as well as develop standards and regulations for potential future products and industries like nanotechnology. Although the plans detail certain steps that can be or are being taken, the majority of the information is about agreed-upon shared values and the possibility of cooperation. In light of the relative paucity of detail about these “action plans,” media outlets chose to illustrate the general points of the agreement with seemingly random examples, such as this one about breakfast cereals. Keen-eyed observers of this trivial example of the effects might have noted a striking similarity to the way that Prime Minister Harper tried to deflect criticism of the Security and Prosperity Partnership agreement that sought

On one level, reducing these agreements to regulations on cereals and jelly beans marginalizes the legitimate criticism and fears about the erosion of national sovereignty implicit in these talks. It also serves to keep the public disinterested in the issues by painting them as dry and unimportant talks about bureaucratic affairs. What this similarity in rhetoric unwittingly reveals, however, is how this latest agreement is in fact nothing new, and can only be properly understood as the latest point in a continuing process of merging the bureaucratic, regulatory and military functions of Canada and the US that has in fact been taking place for a decade. In the immediate aftermath of 9/11, the two countries began work on reshaping the nature of the world’s longest undefended border. This resulted in the Canada-US Smart Border Declaration, an agreement signed in December 2001 that contained much of the same rhetoric as the recent agreement, including vows to coordinate security and law enforcement efforts in the name of facilitating the flow of people and goods between Canada and the States. This led into the Security and Prosperity Partnership, a trilateral framework between the governments of the US, Canada and Mexico that began a process of regulatory integration. Formally launched in 2005, the SPP quickly caught the attention of the public on both sides of the border, and as freedom of information requests shed more light on the process, including the almost total domination of the partnership in closed-door meetings by big business, the SPP’s annual summit quickly became a flashpoint for political activism. In the light of public scrutiny, the SPP was shelved in 2009, but many of its initiatives and recommendations continue on behind the scenes. SPP documents, for example, show how Canada’s controversial no-fly list was in fact part of a trilateral agreement, with the 2006 report to leaders in fact mandating the program’s June 2007 launch date. Meanwhile, the military merger of Canada and the US has proceeded in its own series of mutual agreements, beginning with the creation of NORTHCOM, the United States Northern Command, in 2002, which charged the US military with the protection of the United States, Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Mexico and Canada. In February of 2008, the Canadian and American militaries signed an agreement allowing troops of either country to cross the border and carry out operations in the other country in the event of an emergency, such as civil unrest. In 2010, the two countries signed the shiprider agreement, allowing the operation of specially designated ves-
sels to patrol the shared waterways of the two countries by joint crew, consisting of both Canadian and American law enforcement. This agreement is cited in the new border proposal as an example of how cross-border policing can be implemented. Now, with increasing “cooperation” between crossborder law enforcement, Canadians will be expected to allow American officials to pursue their investigations of suspected criminals on Canadian soil. And the process of harmonization means that Canada may even be expected to allow the use of drone surveillance, an idea presently being used by the US to patrol the Canadian border and even to pursue criminal investigations of American citizens far away from the border. Although there are many individual aspects of this latest accord that are worrying, from the militarization of the border to the harmonization of regulatory frameworks to allow for the lowest common denominator in food standards and other areas, to the increasing sharing of information about citizens between the two countries, perhaps the most worrying aspect is the project itself. As many have warned, these seemingly bland border proposals, a story so dull that it has barely been covered at all by the American press, may in fact be used to slip in a North American Union through the gradual merging of the two countries’ bureaucratic systems. The most insidious part of this process is that it is not subject to legislative oversight of any kind, and is taking place in behind-the-scenes discussions between high-level bureaucrats outside of the glare of public scrutiny, a point that is readily conceded by the proposals’ proponents. Last week I had the chance to talk to Paul Hellyer, the former deputy Prime Minister of Canada, about this agreement, and whether the border security threat that the US is using to justify the process is in fact a ploy to obscure an underlying agenda, the drive to merge Canada and US in a de facto union. Regardless of whether this particular agreement bears fruit for those seeking to bring the two countries into a closer union, or whether it is just another waypoint on the road of a much longer and more detailed process, the very real concerns about the erosion of national sovereignty implicit in this deal is one that those in power are eager to see avoided. So far, they are being aided in that quest by a media that chooses to avoid the hard questions about this series of agreements to the extent that they cover them at all. As always, the power belongs in the hands of the people. Without significant pushback from the public, however, the momentum of these border agreements might be enough to make the North American Union an inevitability. Alternatively, the public can fight back by making this into a key political issue and informing others of the potential threat to the survival of both the US and Canada as sovereign nations.

I ask everyone to listen to him and welcome him.” - Chief Louis Daniel (Whispers Wind) - Elder, Turtle Clan, Anishinabe Nation, Winnipeg, Manitoba
