American Pride Dance Cancelled in Lexington, MA Because It’s Exclusionary

A Lexington High School, yes that’s correct, Lexington, Massachusetts where the Revolutionary War began for American Independence; students aren’t allowed to have an “American Pride” themed dance. Why? The Administration feels they are excluding other nationalities.

Amazon Quietly Bricked Jailbroken Kindle Devices Last Year

It appears that Amazon is very serious about walling off its garden. Late last year, it pushed out a firmware update for its Amazon Fire TV devices that not only made rooted devices unusable, but prevented Fire TV owners from rolling back firmware to previous, more root-friendly versions. Apparently, Kindle users were also included in this lockdown.

A recent post at Good Reader notes that the latest firmware for Kindles is pretty much identical to its Fire TV firmware, right down to the destruction of functionality.

The new firmware was pushed out to all modern Kindle devices in late November of last year. Anything after version 5.60 will not allow you to hack the firmware and do interesting things like change the screensaver system or install custom apps.

Is Netanyahu Behind the Massacre in Tunis?

Is Israeli intelligence behind the massacre in Tunis? Ask yourself, why would Tunisians commit such a monstrous atrocity that harms no one - but Tunisia? Cui bono?

The senseless terrorist attack on innocent civilians at the Bardo Museum in Tunis, in fact, bolstered no one except Benjamin Netanyahu, whose duplicity had been utterly exposed the day before the attack - when he was re-elected to head the Zionist state that occupies Palestine.

No group had even claimed responsibility for the murderous attack on tourists visiting the Bardo National Museum in Tunis until the Israeli website, SITE Intelligence Group, "interpreted" the terrorist attack for the Western media - and blamed Islamic State - the following day.

The Israeli interpretation, from Mossad's SITE, of the attack in Tunis could have come straight out of one of Netanyahu's books from the 1980s about "Fighting Terrorism."

240 Years Ago Today

240 years ago, today. Note that this speech occurs a month before Lexington-Concord (19 April, 1775 – the original Patriot’s Day).

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" sent a simple message to King George III that there was nothing he could do to return the American colonies to the status of slaves. No matter how much treasure and blood Britain spent, they would get nothing in return, making opposition to Independence a costly exercise in futility. But the money-junkies are persistent and King George III sent in the Britich Regulars to put down the rebellion, which ended with General Lord Cornwallis' surrender at Yorktown. Not having learned their lesson, Britain again tried to recolonize America in the war of 1812, launched in response to the US Congress refusing to renew the charter for the First Bank of the United States, and got whipped again. In the end, many got freedom, and sadly many dies, but Britain never did re-enslave the American people to their private central bank. It took a betrayal by our own Congress and President in 1913 to bring us back into the servitude of the private central banks.

Nitrogen discovered on Mars: Key ingredient of life provides further evidence that the red planet was once habitable

The evidence for Mars once being habitable is steadily growing, as samples collected by Nasa’s Mars Curiosity rover have revealed a key ingredient for life in Martian rock.

Scientists found traces of nitrogen compounds known as nitrates, a vital source of nutrients for living things on Earth.

The discovery is the latest feather in the cap for the theory that while Mars is barren and dry now, it was once habitable.

Crimeans Keep Saying No to Ukraine

A central piece of the West’s false narrative on the Ukraine crisis has been that Russian President Vladimir Putin “invaded” Crimea and then staged a “sham” referendum purporting to show 96 percent support for leaving Ukraine and rejoining Russia. More recently, Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland claimed that Putin has subjected Crimea to a “reign of terror.”

Both elements have been part of the “group think” that dominates U.S. political and media circles, but this propagandistic storyline simply isn’t true, especially the part about the Crimeans being subjugated by Russia.

Consistently, over the past year, polls conducted by major Western firms have revealed that the people of Crimea by overwhelming numbers prefer being part of Russia over Ukraine, an embarrassing reality that Forbes business magazine has now acknowledged.

US Accuses Israel of Spying on Iran Nuclear Talks

The US has accused Israel of spying on international negotiations over Iran’s nuclear programme and using the intelligence gathered to persuade Congress to undermine the talks, according to a report on Tuesday.

Recently Vaccinated Individuals Found to Spread Disease

Most likely you've seen this propaganda being circulated widely in the media. Some parents of children who are immunocompromised and therefore unable to receive the vaccines themselves, for instance, have targeted non-vaxing parents, calling them irresponsible and even killers.

It is sad to see so many lies and misinformation being spread, including those about herd immunity. Another important factor that isn't widely appreciated is that recently vaccinated individuals may actually spread disease.

This is why, in the Johns Hopkins Patient Guide for immunocompromised patients, it makes no mention about avoiding non-vaccinated individuals… but it does mention avoiding "contact with children who are recently vaccinated."

No early answers in Germanwings flight 4U9525 French Alps crash

Reports are still conflicting about whether any emergency broadcast was made from the aircraft, with neither a ‘7700’ general emergency squawk nor a MAYDAY/PAN PAN call made. French media has been reporting a call of «urgence, urgence» (literally: emergency, emergency) but it is unclear whether this was in French — or indeed why a German airline would be communicating in French.

It is equally unclear at this early stage why the aircraft’s relatively shallow, seemingly steady rate and single heading over its eight minute descent would not have afforded the pilots an opportunity to communicated in some way with air traffic control.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The encoding altimeter in the transponder was still working, as verified by the altitude data shown at flighttracker24, so we can rule out a massive on-board electrical failure silencing the radios for now. I would like to know if 4U9525 was supposed to be flying that far to the east, at least up to the point it departed its cruise altitude. Another question is whether air traffic control tried to contact 4U9525 for the reason it was leaving cruise altitude so early, and what, if any, response there was from the crew. This one is a head-scratcher; that's for sure!

UPDATE: One question answered! The low cost Lufthansa subsidiary avoids fees for flying over Spanish air space and reduce fees for flying over French land territory. So the easterly course is not unusual.

Philadelphia Cops Shoot and Kill People at Six Times the Rate of the NYPD: A new Justice Department report details the use of deadly force by Philly police officers.

In Philadelphia, a city with a vastly smaller population than that of New York, has seen a much higher rate of police shootings in recent years. According to a new report published on Monday by the US Department of Justice, police violence disproportionately affects Philadelphia's black community, and officers don't receive consistent training on the department's deadly force policy.

FEMA TO DENY FUNDS TO WARMING DENIERS

The Federal Emergency Management Agency is making it tougher for governors to deny man-made climate change. Starting next year, the agency will approve disaster-preparedness funds only for states whose governors approve hazard-mitigation plans that address climate change. This may put several Republican governors who maintain that the Earth isn't warming due to human activities, or prefer to take no action, in a political bind. Their position may block their states' access to hundreds of millions of dollars in FEMA funds. In the last five years, the agency has awarded an average $1 billion a year in grants to states and territories for taking steps to mitigate the effects of disasters

Netanyahu Will Make History

Well, it’s pretty clear now: Benjamin Netanyahu is going to be a major figure in Israeli history — not because he’s heading to become the longest-serving Israeli prime minister, but because he’s heading to be the most impactful. Having won the Israeli elections — in part by declaring that he will never permit a two state-solution between Israelis and Palestinians — it means Netanyahu will be the father of the one-state solution. And the one-state solution means that Israel will become, in time, either a non-Jewish democracy or Jewish non-democracy.

3. It is a FACT that the backpack pictured at Dzhokhar’s feet outside of Forum restaurant, (the backpack said to have contained one of the bombs), does not match the backpack that Dzhokhar arrived with. It is also a FACT that the backpack at his feet also does not match pictures of the exploded backpack.

4. It is a FACT that it was reported by authorities that there were 5 bombs there that day.

5. It is a FACT that the Boston Globe tweeted about “bomb drills” and “bomb squad activities” the day of the marathon, with one of the tweets being sent in close proximity to the time when the actual bombs were detonated.

6. It is a FACT that Dzhokhar’s backpack could not fit ONE pressure cooker, let alone 2-3.

Netanyahu Deserves the Israeli People, and They Deserve Him

Netanyahu deserves the Israeli people and they deserve him. The results are indicative of the direction the country is headed: A significant proportion of Israelis has finally grown detached from reality. This is the result of years' worth of brainwashing and incitement. These Israelis voted for the man who will lead the United States to adopt harsh measures against Israel, for the man whom the world long ago grew sick of. They voted for the man who admitted to having duped half the world during his Bar-Ilan speech; now he has torn off his mask and disavowed those words once and for all. Israel said "yes" to the man who said "no" to a Palestinian state. Dear Likud voters, what the hell do you say "yes" to? Another 50 years of occupation and ostracism? Do you really believe in that?

Monsanto chief admits ‘hubris’ is to blame for public fears over GM

The American company that produced the world’s first genetically modified crop has admitted for the first time that its “hubris” in promoting the technology contributed to a consumer backlash against genetically modified food.

Speaking to The Independent, the chief executive of Monsanto conceded that the company had failed to appreciate public concerns over GM technology when it was introduced nearly 20 years ago.

And he also said that the company had suffered by making “the wrong call” when it failed to rebrand itself in the aftermath of the botched launch of GM in Europe.

Kolomoisky finishing Ukraine up

About 15 years ago, “natural selection”-based oligarchic capitalism started being developed in Ukraine: oligarchs devoured small and medium businesses, as well as state-owned assets. As resources of primitive accumulation were going to be exhausted, oligarchs began to devour each other by means of administrative pressure, raider attacks, corrupt courts, trumped-up charges and, if necessary, murder. This process was quite similar to a fight of scorpions in a can.

After the 2014 coup, this “natural selection” fight sharply escalated. Such oligarchs as Dmitry Firtash fizzled out, whereas other oligarchs are still struggling to survive. For instance, Ukraine’s former oligarch n.1, Rinat Akhmetov, has been already eliminated from the world’s 100 richest people list: according to Bloomberg, he dropped from 88th to 121th place. Just last year, Akhmetov’s wealth decreased by 4.3 billion USD and dropped down to 9.6 billion USD.

Now that document has been declassified and it reveals that there was virtually zero justification for the war. The document reveals that there was “no operational tie between Saddam and al Qaeda” and no WMD programs.

Iran's embassy in Amman has denied alleged statements attributed to the commander of the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC Quds Force), Major General Qassem Suleimani, who was reported as saying this weekend that he believed Tehran had the ability to control events in Jordan, as it does in Iraq and Lebanon.

In a statement released on Monday, the embassy said that: "the alleged statements attributed to General Suleimani about developments in the region and the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan in particular were unfounded."

The embassy pointed out that following the release of media reports, the public relations department in the Revolutionary Guards issued a statement denying all remarks attributed to General Suleimani.

Stratfor Founder: Russia “can endure things that would break other nations”

Throughout 2014 and into 2015, Russia has been under relentless assault by the Western elite who have engaged ineconomic, strategic and information warfare in a bid to force regime change in Moscow, a fact that is well documented by this point. What has been less well documented is the ability of the Russian people to withstand such tremendous economic hardships and full-frontal assaults down through history, whilst still remaining a strong and cohesive people. Russia is a one of the most unique countries on the planet who has responded to sanctions and demonization in a way no other country could have. Overthrowing the Russian government is a far greater challenge to the West than ousting any other regime on earth, a challenge that has as much chance of boomeranging and fracturing the West as it has of being successful.

China, the world’s largest pork producer, is also the world’s biggest consumer of antibiotics in farming.

TV Ad Airs Asking Military Drone Pilots to Stop Participating in War

(ANTIMEDIA) – Earlier this month, a television ad appeared on CNN, MSNBC and other mainstream networks asking drone pilots to stop participating in war.

“We produced this spot to make the point as powerfully as possible that drone killing is horrifying, illegal and immoral,“ Mottern said.

30 pounds of cocaine show up in UN mailroom

There was something odd about two sacks that showed up this month in the United Nations mailroom, even if they did have what appeared to be the distinctive U.N. seal, with its globe framed by olive branches. It was blue, but a shade lighter than usual, and the sacks did not include the words "United Nations."

What's more, the sacks had no return address, or even an addressee. Package handlers at a U.N. mail room ran the bags through an X-ray screener.

Inside were 14 hollowed-out textbooks, each containing a little more than 2 pounds of cocaine, New York police told The Times on Friday.

U.N. security officials notified the New York Police Department and the Drug Enforcement Agency, which seized about 35 pounds of cocaine with a street value of $440,000, said NYPD Deputy Commissioner Paul Browne.

Officials do not believe the cocaine, which was delivered to the U.N. complex last week by DHL, was intended for a diplomat.

The $6.8 Billion Great Wall Of Japan: Fukushima Cleanup Takes On Epic Proportion

To reduce the 300 tons of newly created radioactive water each day, TEPCO must cut off the flow of groundwater into the nuclear complex. To do that, it plans on building an ice wall that will surround the four reactors. TEPCO plans on building an intricate array of coolant pipes underneath the reactors, freezing the soil into a hardened ice wall that will block the flow of water. The ice wall will stretch one and a half kilometers around the reactors.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I thought the ice wall idea had been abandoned as unworkable, since there is no way to guarantee a solid impermeable barrier will form deep underground.

Insane America Makes War on the World

The hollow-eyed inhabitants of the land of the free and the home of the brave now robotically sing a twisted tune that is not under any circumstances to be believed. The manic echo of its “war on terror” anthem reverberates down the trash strewn corridors of the insane asylum the United States of America has become, where independent thought is now a crime and blind allegiance to a fabricated history and an artificial reality is required for social acceptance in a nightmare world turned absolutely upside down.

17 Scientists Speak Out: Monsanto’s Roundup is Causing Cancer

Are the full body protective suits not enough of a tip off that pesticides are toxic? If not, consider this: Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide – the most widely used and best-selling herbicide in the U.S. and one of the world’s most popular weed-killers – has been labeled a probable carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

The decision was made by IARC, the France-based cancer research arm of the World Health Organization, which considered the status of five insect and weed killers including glyphosate, which is used globally in industrial farming.

Mainstream media falls for California wine arsenic HOAX story: wine industry victimized by scientifically illiterate reporting

While the media headlines shown above may sound convincing, the truth is that the accusations are part of an outlandish hoax. The lawsuit's claims are blatantly false, and the California wine industry is being unfairly victimized by what I see as a highly irresponsible attempt to extort money from wine makers through a junk science lawsuit that suffers from fatal errors I will explain here.

The group that put out the original press release, it seems, is trying to drum up lab testing business from other wine and beer manufacturers. The mainstream media played right into the hoax, providing them with enormous free publicity even as they conducted what I have to call really BAD science.

CONFIRMED: U.S. intentionally escalating tensions with Russia

First of all, as far as the heavy armored stryker vehicles are concerned, their movement is being done in a classic pre war psy op fashion. Rather than be shipped by rail, they are driving the main roads in a huge public show and the troops are pitching tents and camping along the way. The goal of this psy op is to allow American soldiers to be seen in public places by many people, with top behavior being an order. They are doing this to put American forces in a positive light, and this tactic for a simple "vehicle movement" is unprecedented. It is a clear sign that America's intentions are war, because the method will build support in local communities in Europe, which will be needed if war does start.

Dissolving Illusions About the Measles Vaccine

With the elevation of vaccination to a sacred cow status, it is no wonder that ever since about 50 visitors to Disneyland in California were diagnosed with measles earlier this year, the whole country has been subjected to a relentless barrage of mainstream media articles blaming unvaccinated children for a minor measles outbreak that, by March 16, 2015, consisted of a grand total of 176 cases.2 in a population of 320 million people.

The way public health officials and the media have been promoting irrational fear about measles and using it to lobby for laws eliminating all non-medical vaccine exemptions or even criminally prosecuting and jailing unvaccinated people, it sometimes feels like we are living in a dystopian science fiction novel.

I have never seen such a well-coordinated disinformation campaign to vilify virtually anyone who would question the effectiveness and safety of complying with the CDC's ever-expanding vaccination schedule.3

UK Opposes Return of Russian Business from Offshore

On 19th March, President Vladimir Putin stated in an address at the conference of the Russian Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs, that a plan for the decreased reliance of offshore business could be met with opposition from a number of countries – although they as yet remain nameless. As Izvestia understands, the jurisdictions in question are primarily those under the control of the United Kingdom.

"So this is the situation: there is some, I would say, rather alarming information emerging from some countries suggesting that there may be attempts to prevent capital repayments to Russia. This may be due to the restrictions placed on the usage of such capitals, which are in foreign jurisdictions. But it’s worth bearing in mind." - President Vladimir Putin

McCain: Congress could defund UN if US backs Palestine bid

In a restive interview Saturday, Obama had suggested that Israel’s democracy may “erode” following contentious statements by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ahead of Tuesday’s election. His comments came amid a nadir in ties between the two leaders over the right approach to tackling Iran’s nuclear program and the Israeli leader’s controversial speech before Congress earlier this month.

Responding to signals from the White House that the US could stop using its United Nations Security Council veto power to quash unilateral resolutions in support of Palestinian statehood, McCain, chairman of the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee, warned Obama against such a move.

“We need intelligent debate in the country. Ted Cruz may be an intelligent person, but he doesn’t carry out an intelligent debate,” King said. “He oversimplifies, he exaggerates and he basically led the Republican Party over the cliff in the fall of 2013. He has shown no qualifications, no legislation being passed, doesn’t provide leadership and he has no real experience. So, to me, he is just a guy with a big mouth and no results.”

But would King support Cruz if he ended up becoming the Republican Party nominee for 2016?

“I hope that day never comes,” King told Blitzer. “I will jump off that bridge when we come to it.”

World Water Day protest targets Massachusetts-Israel Water Partnership

Demonstrators urged the Commonwealth not to be complicit with Israel’s theft of Palestinian water and policies that have been widely denounced as ‘Water Apartheid.’ The UN had declared that water is a human right, and Massachusetts should respect that right without exception.

The literature distributed to hundreds of passers-by and to MassCEC staff members distilled the findings of scores of reports by international agencies including Amnesty International and Palestinian organizations such as Al Haq:

Israel appropriates Palestinian water resources for its own residents. Illegal West Bank settlements fill their swimming pools while water taps in Palestinian villages and refugee camps run dry for months at a time.

Israel has destroyed Palestinian wells, cisterns and irrigation and sewage systems and prevented Palestinians from drilling new wells and irrigating their land.

AMTRAK / DHS ARE SPYING ON PASSENGERS AND LETTING POLICE ACCESS RECORDS WITHOUT WARRANTS

The first release of documents from 'Papers Please.org's' FOIA request for records of police and govt access to Amtrak reservation data show that Amtrak is giving police root access and a dedicated user interface to mine passenger data for general state and law enforcement purposes and is lying to passengers about it. Papers Please. Org's FOIA request was prompted by Amtrak’s obviously incomplete response to an earlier FOIA request from the ACLU. That response omitted any mention of Homeland Security's (DHS) access to Amtrak reservation data. Even though we’ve seen records of Amtrak profiling passengers and denying DHS involvement. The documents were clearly responsive to the ACLU’s request, and should have been included in Amtrak’s response to that request.

Right lessons to be drawn from the past on Yugoslavia bombing anniversary — Russian ForMin

It is critically important to abandon the practice of double standards, unilateral and selective interpretation of international law, Russian Foreign Ministry says.
On March 24, 1999, NATO launched a war against the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, beginning a barbaric bombing campaign.

More than 5,000 people were wounded and over a thousand went missing. Serbia’s military and industrial infrastructure was almost totally destroyed. More than 1,500 populated localities were ruined. Serbian experts have estimated the damage from NATO bombardments from $60 to 100 billion.

US trying to drive wedge between Russia, Ukraine for years, says Assange

"The U.S. has long been trying to draw Ukraine into the Western orbit, to pluck it out of Russia’s sphere of influence as a minimum if not to make it a NATO member," Assange said.
Under the influence of bureaucratic ambitions, Europe has gotten involved in the misadventure, too, he believes.
"The U.S. and Europe have allocated billions of dollars to set up nongovernmental organizations, with the aid of which they promised to help Ukraine curb corruption," Assange said.
He recalled numerous warnings on the part of Russia that the attempts to bring Ukraine into NATO might trigger a civil war in that country.

Costa Rica powered with 100% renewable energy for 75 straight days

The ICE says the country's zero-emission milestone was enabled thanks to heavy rainfalls at four hydroelectric power facilities in the first quarter of 2015. These downpours have meant that, for the months of January, February and so far March, there has been no need to burn fossil fuels to generate electricity.

Instead, Costa Rica has been powered primarily by hydro power - both pumped storage and run-of-the-river plants - and a mixture of geothermal, wind, biomass and solar energy.

It’s important to remember that Costa Rica is a small nation. It has a total area of about 51,000 square kilometres, which is about half the size of the US state of Kentucky, and it has a population of only 4.8 million people. Furthermore, its primary industries are tourism and agriculture, rather than heavy, more energy-intensive industries such as mining or manufacturing.

LightEater malware attack places millions of unpatched BIOSes at risk

Two minutes is all it takes to completely destroy a computer. In a presentation entitled "How many million BIOSes would you like to infect?" at security conference CanSecWest, security researchers Corey Kallenberg and Xeno Kovah revealed that even an unskilled person could use an implant called LightEater to infect a vulnerable system in mere moments.

The attack could be used to render a computer unusable, but it could also be used to steal passwords and intercept encrypted data. The problem affects motherboards from companies including Gigabyte, Acer, MSI, HP and Asus. It is exacerbated by manufactures reusing codes across multiple UEFI BIOSes and places home users, businesses and governments at risk.

Talking to The Register, Kopvah explained that the problem is made worse because of the fact that very few people take the trouble to update their BIOS.

Former diplomat, minister shocked by WTO spy claims

Spying by the GCSB on those competing against National Government minister Tim Groser for the World Trade Organisation's top job has appalled a former foreign affairs and trade minister and astonished one of the country's most experienced diplomats.

An inquiry is likely into the actions of the GCSB after Labour leader Andrew Little said he would ask the Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security to investigate today.

The Herald and US news site the Intercept yesterday revealed a top secret GCSB document showing the electronic surveillance agency had been searching for email communications which mentioned Mr Groser, the Trade Minister, in association with names of candidates competing against him. The news broke as Prime Minister John Key and Mr Groser prepared to sign a Free Trade Agreement in South Korea, whose former trade minister was among the surveillance targets vying for the $700,000 WTO job.

Fighting The "War on Terror" By Banning Cash

It was just a matter of time before Western governments used the trumped up "War on Terror" as an excuse to drastically ratchet up the very real war on the use of cash and personal privacy that they are waging against their own citizens.

Taking advantage of public anxiety in the wake of the attacks on Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket, France has taken the first step. It seems the terrorists involved partially financed these attacks by cash, as well as by consumer loans and the sale of counterfeit goods. What a shockeroo!

The terrorists used CASH to purchase some of the stuff they needed--no doubt these murderers were also shod and clothed and used cell phones, cars, and public sidewalks during the planning and execution of their mayhem. Why not restrict their use? A naked , barefoot terrorist without communications is surely less effective than a fully clothed and equipped one.

Welcome To The TSA's Creepy "Behavior Detection" Program

Airport security basically sucks: Being herded through a Tensabarrier maze alongside a bunch of strangers is vexing enough. Then throw in the bag searches, the bomb-swabs, the mandatory doffing and donning of footwear and accessories, the "complimentary" pat down—it's hardly surprising that some people will come through the experience looking less than cheerful.

Mainstream U.S. Writers Call for Supporting Al Qaeda and ISIS

Sure, America’s closest allies support ISIS.

And admittedly, the U.S. has repeatedly fumbled, so that arms got into Al Qaeda and ISIS’ hands. Here, here, here and here.

And poor U.S. policies have undoubtedly created more terrorists then they’ve neutralized.

And it’s true that the U.S. knowingly supported Al Qaeda in Libya in order to topple Gaddaffi. But that was on the QT.

But now – for the first time – mainstream flacks are publicly calling for the United States of America to support ISIS and Al Qaeda …

Netanyahu election aftermath: Reaping the consequences of Israeli fanaticism

Mearsheimer and Walt try to see Israel as a normal state capable of making rational decisions, but the extremists are in charge and have been so at least since the 1967 War. Any attempt to make a meaningful withdrawal from the West Bank and Jerusalem and to allow a viable Palestinian state would produce a civil war among Israelis and likely provoke a strong response by the lobby on the side of the nonaccommodationists. The fate of the Oslo peace process, the assassination of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin, and the support by the lobby of the most radical elements within Israel certainly argue that there is little chance of a successful move in this direction.

Supernatural Agriculture

Supernatural Agriculture is a web site devoted to the inherent spirituality of growing food & medicine in a way that respects the environment of this unique planet we all share. Up until the beginning of 20th century, the ability to survive and thrive on this planet depended on having an intimate relationship with the forces of nature; our global economy was literally fueled by the sun and the process of photosynthesis. We grew most of our food, fiber, fuel and pharmaceuticals. With the exploitation of coal and oil, our lifestyle changed from a carbohydrate based reality to one fueled by hydrocarbons. Survival and security was now in the hands of the oil and banking interests. Instead of the small family farmer, the banks, corporations, and laboratories now grew the food and food-like substances we now get at the local supermarket.

Has this change from carbohydrates to hydrocarbons made for a happier and healthier global culture? Has it brought stability and wealth to our lives?

EMPIRE AND COLONIALISM: RICH MEN IN LONDON STILL DECIDING AFRICA’S FUTURE

Some £600 million in UK aid money courtesy of the taxpayer is helping big business increase its profits in Africa via the New Alliance for Food Security and Nutrition. In return for receiving aid money and corporate investment, African countries have to change their laws, making it easier for corporations to acquire farmland, control seed supplies and export produce.
