A Strange Situation In France: Something Big Might Happen

 

In France, In a town called Saumur, gardeners employed by the town made a strange discovery. They went to work on an old church. Behind that church there are old natural caves. When they arrived there they saw 3 men getting in a white van and leaving the place. So they went to see inside that cave. They found ISIS flags, audio and video stuff, newspapers in Arabic, a generator.. So, they immediately alerted the local police, which in turn alerted all the other services of the state : national police, anti-terrorist forces, the prosecutor of the republic, the scientific police, etc..

Turns out, it was “just an exercise”, led by the military center for nuclear, chemical, biological and radio-logical defense, allegedly of course. But no one was aware of that exercise, not the local police, not the anti-terrorist forces etc.., no one but some general in the army. The question is, why would they need ISIS flags and stuff in Arabic for an exercise, and a generator ? Why didn’t they inform at least the local police that there was an exercise going on ? Because that’s usually the case. Usually government officials are informed, and the local population, too in some cases.

It is to be noted that they almost always find ISIS flags in some car, or in some apartment shortly after a terrorist attack, and also stuff in Arabic. This looks like a deep state operation. An operation that is led by some state service, in the shadows.

There are almost no articles in French MSM regarding this, and if there are, it is just a short article to say that military personnel have been mistaken with terrorists.

Only this link digs deeper and ask all the relevant questions.

Millions of bees die after South Carolina sprays pesticide to curb Zika

 

This is the ultimate buzzkill.

In an effort to stop the spread of Zika before it starts, parts of South Carolina were doused from the air on Sunday morning with a common insecticide called Naled, the Washington Post reported. After the early morning spray, local beekeepers arrived at work to a startling sound: overwhelming silence.

By one estimate, Flowertown Bee Farm and Supplies lost 46 hives in the death spray, or about 2.5 million bees, local NBC affiliate WCBD-TV reported. Beekeepers were devastated by the loss.

“I was angry that day, I just couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that we spray poison from the sky,” bee owner Andrew Macke told WCBD-TV.

And not all of the bees died after the spray.

“As you can see, a few that are alive are trying to help and save and clean up the ones that are dead,” one beekeeper from Flowertown Bee Farm said in a morose Facebook video, her voice full of emotion.

South Carolina currently has 46 travel-related cases of Zika in the state,according to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control, one of which was sexually transmitted.

As of now, there are no reports of Zika from local mosquito bites, but Dorchester County took the extra step to spray from the air on Sunday — and the deviation from the county’s usual ground-based efforts in curbing the pesky insects is where the problem began, bee owners say.

“Had I known, I would have been camping on the steps doing whatever I had to do screaming, ‘No you can’t do this,'” Juanita Stanley told Charleston’s WCSC-TV.

The county acknowledged to the New York Times that a county worker had not followed proper protocol for the pesticide spraying — he didn’t call every registered beekeeper.

“He made a mistake in terms of going down his list and failed to call,” Jason L. Ward told the New York Times.

Even still, some bee owners are hoping that this can be a learning experience for people.

“If we turn this into a teachable moment, how important bees are to the environment and how unhealthy it is to aerial spray a pesticide,” Macke told WCBD-TV.

Powerful Images Demonstrate That by Destroying Nature, We Are Destroying Life Itself

Art is often used as a means to raise awareness of the acute problems humanity faces today. Environmental issues, being one of the most significant of them, inspire illustrators and graphic designers all over the world to address these matters in their artwork. From drawings that show the damage the human race has done to each sphere of Earth to the illustrations that reveal a true face of war, all these stunning pieces of art serve the same purpose – to expose the absurdity of what’s happening in the world today and to encourage people to be the change.

Today, we are featuring a series of thought-provoking images titled “Destroying Nature is Destroying Life.” This awareness campaign was created by designer Surachai Puthikulangkura and agency Grabarz & Partner for German environmental activist group Robin Wood.

The title of the campaign speaks for itself, and the pictures convey a powerful message: if humans continue to destroy Earth’s natural habitats, constantly exhausting their resources, life on the planet, including our own species, will eventually be wiped out.

To demonstrate the detrimental effects of human activity on the natural world, the images depict three different landscapes that have undergone most of the damage. Each of those is represented by an animal that comes from the respective habitat.

Thus, in the pictures below, you can see the icy landscape of the Arctic with melting glaciers, which is caused by the climate change. Factors like greenhouse gas emissions and deforestation make average atmospheric temperatures constantly increase. As a result, polar bears and other Arctic animals are being threatened.

There is real scientific evidence behind the striking images of this awareness campaign, as a recent study concluded that our planet is now entering the sixth mass extinction. It is estimated that due to the human impact on the natural environment, the vertebrate species are now disappearing up to 100 times faster than the normal. At the same time, the loss of habitat, caused by human industrial activities, has, in fact, lead to the extinction of 52% of wildlife in the world. It seems that we humans have reached the point where the deadly consequences of our actions are no longer reversible.

These powerful images demonstrate that we are the reason for all the problems that plague our planet today. Yet, they also remind us that we are the only ones who can do something about it and save life on Earth while it’s still possible.

20 Chilling Photos that will Force You to Look at the Darker Side of Our Society

Igor Morski, a Polish graphic designer, illustrator and set designer, is a well-known artist for exploring the not so subtle horrors of modern society through his controversial illustrations. In the below thought-provoking photo series System Failure, he makes you think: Is the earth a scary place, or have we become too dangerous for the planet? Is the technology bringing us closer or have we become too ‘smart’; addictive and therefore distinct from each other? Are we actually living our dreams, or are we killing ourselves trying to meet other people’s expectations? Are we succumbing to outer beauty and fads than our inner calling and beliefs? Are we emotionally connected, or are today’s relationships a lie? Are we being humans, or busy being demons…?

Bored Panda observes:

“They might make you uncomfortable, or create that funny feeling in the pit of your stomach, but I would argue that this is probably a good thing, that it suggests the images resonate on a deeper level. Art is supposed to evoke something within us. Morski’s creative expression outlines concepts and ideas in our modern society that perhaps we are not privy to because we’re just ‘so in it’.”

The beauty of these photos is that they are open for interpretation. You can interpret them the way you want, and they will reflect your truth. Here’s our interpretation…

New moon discovered around dwarf planet Makemake

Orbiting a tiny planet at the far reaches of our solar system is an even tinier, pitch-black moon, NASA’s Hubble telescope has revealed.

The moon — nicknamed MK2 — orbits Makemake, the second brightest icy dwarf planet, after Pluto, in the Kuiper belt, the huge mass of comets, frozen rocks and other objects orbiting the sun beyond Neptune.
It was discovered by scientists at the Space Telescope Science Institute and the Southwest Research Institute, using the Hubble space telescope.
Makemake, named for the creation deity of the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island, has a diameter of 870 miles, around a 10th of the size of Earth and two-thirds that of Pluto. MK2 is smaller still, with a diameter of just 100 miles.

Pluto killers

The discovery of Makemake, along with fellow dwarf planets Ceres, Eris and Haumea, was the primary reason for the reclassification of Pluto in 2006 as a dwarf planet.
Finding a moon orbiting Makemake only reinforces the unfortunate fact for Pluto lovers that the one-time ninth planet is not as special as once thought.
“This new discovery opens a new chapter in comparative planetology in the outer solar system,” Marc Buie of the Southwest Research Institute said in a statement.

Moon over Makemake

As scientists observe the moon and its orbit more closely, they hope to gain insight into its origin.
A tight circular orbit would indicate that it was most likely formed as a result of a collision between Makemake and another Kuiper belt object, whereas a wider, elongated orbit would suggest the moon is in a captured orbit, sucked into orbit around the dwarf planet.
“Either event would have likely occurred several billion years ago, when the solar system was young,” the Hubble team said.

New planet?

The discovery of Makemake’s moon isn’t the only recent expansion of our solar system’s known objects.
In January, scientists said they had found evidence of a theorized ninth planet orbiting the sun at a distance of more than 65 billion miles.
While the planet has yet to be observed, scientists estimate it would have a mass about 10 times that of Earth, and would take up to 20,000 years to complete an orbit around our star.

Half of the Great Barrier Reef Is Dead or Dying, and 93% Is Bleached, Study Finds

The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s most remarkable natural wonders.

With the impressive overall length of 1,430 miles, it is not only the most extensive coral reef ecosystem but also the largest living structure on the planet. Unfortunately, this natural masterpiece may soon disappear as the findings of a recent study suggest that the reef is on the brink of extinction.

A report from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies reveals a terrifying fact that 50% of corals in the Great Barrier Reef have already died or are dying while 93% are suffering from bleaching.

How does coral bleaching occur?

Affected by increased sea temperatures and extreme weather conditions, corals expel the microalgae that live inside them. In fact, these microalgae are what gives the corals such vivid colors, so when they are expelled, the corals turn white. This is what is called bleaching.

In this state, the marine organisms are at the risk of dying but at the same time, have a chance to recover if the environmental conditions stabilize soon enough. However, when the stressing factor persists for too long and the consequences of bleaching are not reversed quickly, the corals become victims of opportunistic species that exploit them to form their own ecosystems.

The scale of the problem

Scientists say that this is the most severe coral bleaching event ever recorded.

As Prof. Terry Hughes, convener of the National Coral Bleaching Taskforce, said in a press release, “We’ve never seen anything like this scale of bleaching before. In the northern Great Barrier Reef, it’s like 10 cyclones have come ashore all at once. Our estimate at the moment is that close to 50 percent of the coral is already dead or dying.”

According to the results of aerial surveys that were focused on 911 individual reefs out of the total 3,000,only 68, or 7%, were not affected by bleaching. At the same time, from 60 to 100% of corals suffer from a severe bleaching on 316 reefs.

This has been the saddest research trip of my life,” said Prof. Hughes. “Almost without exception, every reef we flew across showed consistently high levels of bleaching, from the reef slope right up onto the top of the reef. We flew for 4000km in the most pristine parts of the Great Barrier Reef and saw only four reefs that had no bleaching.”

While winter in the southern hemisphere is expected to bring some relief, it is unlikely that it will have a significant effect on the state of the reefs. The only thing that can save the corals is an action from our side. Scientists say that reducing pollution, sedimentation and unsustainable fishing practices in local communities can partly reverse the detrimental changes in the Great Barrier Reef.

However, the problem is bigger than that and can’t be solved on the local level. CO2 emissions and other consequences of human activity are the cause of this and many other devastating phenomena that plague the natural environment of our planet. Unless we do something about it soon, we will see more and more living creatures suffer and die.

The Federal Reserve is a Ponzi Scheme

Most Americans are proud to be American and consider the United States to be the greatest nation in all of history, and there are many things we can point to which substantiates this belief. However, everything in life is transitory and when all is said and done, history will judge that instead of America being something special to be admired, Americans were suckers who fell hook line and sinker for the worst Ponzi Scheme the world has ever seen: the Federal Reserve Bank, more commonly known as the Fed.

The original Ponzi scheme was a swindle which was conceived and run by an Italian immigrant named Charles Ponzi, who defrauded his investors out of millions of dollars during the 1920’s. The con, like most cons, is deceptively simple. Its perpetrator convinces his clients that he is a skillful investor or entrepreneur who will make them more money than they could possibly make investing elsewhere. Once people (suckers) are hooked and give their money to the perpetrator, instead of earning a return on their investment, they are paid what they believe are earnings from money that is conned from newer investors in the same scheme. The scheme functions smoothly for a while, but an increasing number of new investors are required to pay off the older investors and keep them at bay. Of course, in the long run, this is an impossible situation and eventually, the scheme collapses with those still in the game losing everything they invested.

Understanding the above, upon examination it becomes clear that the Federal Reserve Bank has many of the same characteristics as a Ponzi scheme.

The-Federal-Reserve-is-a-Ponzi-Scheme-Rothschild-Crime-Scene-330x217

First of all, like a Ponzi scheme, it began with a lie concocted solely to suck in its intended victims — the promise to regulate the US economy such that economic booms and busts would be eliminated. In truth the opposite has been the case since the passage of the Federal Reserve Act in 1913. In fact, the Fed actually played a role in bringing about the Depression of 1929 and the deep recession which presently grips the nation.

Secondly, similar to a Ponzi scheme, the Fed takes our money and gives us nothing in return. The money we give to the Fed is not earned for any service it provides, nor is there any reasonable justification for us to give it them. This is how the scheme came about:

“The goldsmiths were our first bankers. Goldsmiths worked with precious metals and… it was only natural for people to take their excess coins to the goldsmith for safe keeping. Upon so doing, the goldsmith would give them a written receipt for the amount of coins being stored. Soon people realized that instead of trading coins for the things they needed, they could trade the receipts instead. Thus paper currency was born…

“This rudimentary monetary system worked well in small agrarian economies, but as villages turned into towns and towns into cities, a need to borrow money developed and who was better positioned to loan money than the goldsmith. Not only did he have his own money, but he also held other people’s money which was sitting in his coffers doing nothing…

“It was a rare occurrence when someone retrieved all the coins they deposited… Therefore, if [the goldsmith] issued demand notes for more coins than he had, the chances are that he would always have sufficient money on hand to cover the notes which were redeemed by one or even several depositors… So our enterprising goldsmith went out on the limb and adopted this practice. Upon so doing, fractional banking was born. [source]

Finally, similar to a Ponzi scheme, the eventual collapse of our economy is inevitable and when it does, the people of this nation will lose, not just their investments, but everything. Presently, we are experiencing the beginnings of this collapse and despite what Washington and the media tell us about a recovery, none will ever come unless we get out from under the Fed and its whirlpool of debt and inflation.

The-Federal-Reserve-is-a-Ponzi-Scheme-US-Dollar-

While the similarities between a Ponzi scheme and the Fed are such that it falls into the same category of crime, the truth of the matter is that the Fed is far more criminal and diabolical than a simple Ponzi scheme could ever be.

First of all, the victims of a Ponzi scheme are motivated by greed and make a deliberate choice to be a part of the scam. Instead, the Fed has victimized all citizens of this nation (and other Federal Reserve nations) and no one has been given any choice in the matter, because a gullible Congress decided the matter for us.

Furthermore, in a Ponzi scheme, victims lose their investments but are left with the money they did not invest, and this still has value. The Fed, however, keeps the money we give it, but because fiat money is a key element of the scam, it is continually being printed. As a result, the money we keep and save for ourselves loses value (to inflation) over time and will eventually be worth nothing. Thus, under the Fed, not only do we lose the money we give it, we eventually lose all the money we have. For example, the Federal Reserve Notes we have in our pocket today are worth 96% less in real value than those we had in 1913 when the Fed first came to power. If you had one-million dollars then, it is only worth forty-thousand dollars now. If, our government managed our economy instead of the Fed, not only would we be able to avoid the curse of inflation, but the income taxes we pay would be unnecessary.

The Federal Reserve Bank truly is a den of thieves and con artists who have stolen the wealth and prosperity of an entire nation. Our problem today is that their nefarious and diabolical scheme was legitimized by Congress in 1913 by passage of the Federal Reserve Act. This abominable act was a product of subterfuge and deception and every Congressman who voted for it did so in clear and flagrant violation of their oath of office.

The time has come for Congress to make amends for the crime it committed against the people of America, and this can only be accomplished by repealing the Federal Reserve Act and returning the power to create money to Congress, where it rightfully belongs. Furthermore, those presently participating in this diabolical scheme should be brought to justice and all debts (stolen money) owed these criminals should be declared null and void. Finally, the assets they obtained with our money should be confiscated. Only by taking these actions will America be able to avoid the horrible fate the Fed and their stooges in Congress have bestowed upon the American people.

The-Federal-Reserve-is-a-Ponzi-Scheme--330x206But don’t hold your breath while waiting for any of the above to happen on its own. The huge amount of money the Fed has stolen has made these criminals rich beyond anyone’s ability to comprehend, and they use this money to corrupt whatever they touch. These ill gotten gains have enabled them to keep those we elect to office squarely under their thumbs.

An exception to this state of affairs was President John F. Kennedy who worked to reign in the Fed while he was in office. In June of 1963, President Kennedy signed Executive Order 11110, which authorized the United States Treasury to print Treasury notes in lieu of Federal Reserve notes thus returning the power to create to Congress as required by the United States Constitution. Unfortunately for America and its people, President Kennedy was murdered in November 1963. Immediately after the President’s assassination, the money issued in keeping with his still-standing Executive Order, was removed from circulation never to be seen again. (For more on this, please see:The Who, How and Why of the JFK Assassination – and Why It Still Matters.)

There is another aspect to our present situation which also costs Americans dearly; The Fed has created an atmosphere of corruption throughout the nation which pervades all our most powerful institutions. The result of this is that men of integrity, who will not compromise themselves, never advance in the hierarchy of our governing institutions. The primary attribute looked for in those being considered for advancement is loyalty to the boss beyond all other considerations, including legalities and the public’s best interest. The higher one goes up the ladder in the public service, the truer this becomes. Our government is led by a criminal enterprise and because of this, it has become a criminal enterprise. Far too many government officials obtain wealth and position through illegal and dishonorable means. Those who are honest and aware of what is going on, look the other way because they know that doing otherwise will be the kiss of death to their careers. The inevitable result of this dismal organizational environment is that our government does almost nothing right anymore, no matter what resources are available. We only have to look to our war on terror, our war on drugs, how we protect our borders, military procurement, and how government contracts are issued and managed to understand the truth in this.

The Fed has turned our government into an ineffectual criminal nightmare and the cost we pay for this is huge. It’s time to repeal the Federal Reserve Act.
