Roosevelt's 1937 Warning Ignored: “The nation that destroys its soil destroys itself.”

The soils are poisoned with chemical fertilizers and pesticides, and allowed to wash away from overfarming, overgrazing, and erosion. Once teeming with life, our prairies and grasslands are being turned into lifeless dust fields.

The PBS documentary “SOS: Save our Soil,” part of its Food Forward series,1 highlights a few “food rebels” who are finding innovative ways to create a more sustainable food system, including making humus compost out of grass stubble and turning chicken litter into biochar.

The top six inches of soil are the most precious yet least understood ecosystem on Earth. In order to appreciate its importance to our very survival, you first must understand the role carbon plays in maintaining the ecological balance of our entire planet.

Conventional agriculture that relies on tilling and monocrops decimates the top soil and is responsible for massive losses every year. So much so that some predict that most of the topsoil in the US will be lost in the next two generations.

The Lonely Clinton Campaign

The candidacy of Ted Cruz, possible encores by Rick Perry, Mike Huckabee, and Rick Santorum, the emergence of Rand Paul, and a “center” represented by Jeb Bush, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, and even Lindsey Graham may induce Romney nostalgia for horror-struck Democrats. But it’s a race that’s bound to become ever more compelling, possibly with more candidates (Ben Carson? Carly Fiorina?), and the contenders will be sharpened in the process. They’re looking for a contender, just as the Democrats were eight years ago, when debates and primaries altered early perceptions that Clinton, or possibly Edwards, was bound to win.

Democrats, meanwhile, seem ready to cede the whole thing to Clinton

West's ties with Russia frozen after year of Ukraine conflict

Relations between the West and Russia remain at their lowest since the Cold War, on the first anniversary of the start of the Ukraine conflict. But all bridges have not yet been burned, analysts say.

Washington and Brussels have imposed sanctions as part of a sea change in ties with Moscow, while a defiant Vladimir Putin has rejected accusations of Russian involvement in the fighting.

A fragile ceasefire has now held in Ukraine since February, but Europe's relationship with Russia is stuck in the deep freeze.

Argentina threatens legal action against Britain over drilling for oil on coast of Falkland Islands

"We want the owners of the companies to be tried according to Argentine laws and international statutes.”
***
Argentina is seeking to renew a 2013 reform of a hydrocarbons law that states penalty fines and lengthy prison sentences can be levied on company executives who orchestrate the search and harvest of natural resources without permission from the government.

It was announced last month that Britain will spend £280m over the next 10 years on renewing and strengthening Falkland forces, by the Secretary of State for Defence Michael Fallon.

This declaration was fiercely slapped down by Argentine President Cristina Fernandez, who said on Thursday that Britain should focus on fighting poverty instead of increasing the amount spent on defence.

(*especially when it appears that the defense of the oil drilling operation is where Britain is going with this .)

8 Things Vietnam War Movies Leave Out (By an Enemy Soldier)

Even if your knowledge of the Vietnam War comes exclusively from Hollywood films and Texan textbooks that only refer to it as "that one the good guys lost," you've probably heard about the Viet Cong. They were a bunch of jungle-fighting guerrilla warriors who killed American boys via night-time ambushes and terrifying traps. Well, that's one side of the story.

Californians Outraged As Oil Producers & Frackers Excluded From Emergency Water Restrictions

California's oil and gas industry is estimated (with official data due to be released in coming days) to use more than 2 million gallons of fresh water per day; so it is hardly surprising that, as Reuters reports, Californians are outraged after discovering that these firms are excluded from Governor Jerry Brown's mandatory water restrictions, "forcing ordinary Californians to shoulder the burden of the drought."

Teacher To Children: Your Parent ‘Is Not A Christian’ If They Support Obama

There are a few things, which any logical person should know, that are not appropriate for teachers to mention to their middle school students. Sharing their partisan political beliefs is one of them. Speaking as if their own religion is superior is another. Informing the kids that their parents aren’t Christian if they support President Obama is a third. Sadly, a Georgia teacher hit the trifecta, but the insanity of this story didn’t stop there.

Gay, Atheist Indiana Doctor: Does New Law Give Me The Right to Refuse Treatment on A**hole Christians?

Dr. Michael Freiheit is a general practitioner in the small town of Fort Schritt, Indiana. He describes himself as both an atheist and gay. Dr. Freiheit estimates that he sees a few hundred people a month for various maladies. In the wake of his state’s governor signing a highly-contentious bill that would allow any business in Indiana to discriminate against Freiheit, who last week volunteered to provide no-cost health care at a homeless shelter, based solely on the business owners’ religiously-based discriminatory feelings toward homosexuals. This has Dr. Freiheit curious about something, and he plans to ask Indiana Governor Mike Pence and the Republicans in the state legislature directly, via email.

India Becomes First Country to Approve Weaponized Drones For Crowd Control

Nicholas West
Activist Post

The evolution of "non-lethal" weapons has been disturbing enough (and actually lethal in many cases), but speculation that this developing arsenal would be attached to drones has generally been met with accusations of fear-mongering.

However, the recent announcement that India (a constitutional republic) has now green-lighted drones for controlling "unruly crowds" in its northern capital Lucknow should get any skeptic's attention...

A Minute with Federal Counsel in Meyer v. U.S. Bank. Bankruptcy/Foreclosure Appeal

Friday, April 3, 2015

A KingCast/Mortgage Movies Minute with Federal Counsel in Meyer v. U.S. Bank.

U.S. Bank et al. got smacked in the Bankruptcy Court and now appeals. Plaintiff/Appellee Attorney Richard Jones asks "If I provide documents to this Court which contained material misrepresentations, would this Court let me off the hook?"

Judge Martinez:
"At what point does the Magistrate have an affirmative duty to investigate the veracity of these documents that are put before it?"

Richard Jones, Esq.:"Under the Deed of Trust Act strict compliance is required. Substantial compliance is insufficient. The problem Judge Overstreet was facing is NWTS did not even have procedure to investigate. That is material and goes to the Public Impact -- they were flying blind" (as admitted by Jeff Stenman -- see Ha Dao Jeff Stenman videos at Affordable Video Depo).

Are They Arming for Riots Across America? Homeland Stockpiling “Less Lethal Specialty Munitions”

Mac Slavo
SHTFplan.com

A new Homeland Security purchase order listed on FedBizOpps raises an eyebrow or two, given the heated and divided political and social climate at hand. Just look at what happened in Ferguson…

A request for “less lethal specialty munitions” for use by Homeland Security dated March 23, 2015 reads:

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) intends to solicit responses to Request for Information (RFI) 20082225-JTC for Less Lethal Specialty Munitions (LLSM) for use by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).

Over the course of 9 pages (PDF), the technical requirements call for an arsenal of specialized weaponry for training and deployment against crowds.

Father Of Student Attacked By Police: U.S. Aid To Mexico 'Being Used To Kill Ordinary People'

Felipe de la Cruz received a call from his son, Angel Neri, the night of Sept. 26, saying he and fellow college students were being attacked by police after stealing buses. De la Cruz urged his son to stay calm, thinking the cops would simply detain him. Instead, police in the city of Iguala killed three of Angel Neri de la Cruz’s classmates from a teachers' college in the nearby town of Ayotzinapa, and abducted 43. Angel Neri survived the attack. The remains of only one of his missing classmates have been identified.

This Chart Perfectly Captures Obama’s Relationship with the Media

President Obama’s media strategy has been one of exclusion, favoritism, and avoidance. This strategy has become even more obvious during his second term. To demonstrate just how, the Washington Post has made a chart which shows exactly who has (and more importantly who hasn’t) been allowed to interview the president so far this year. The results speak for themselves.

Earth receiving mysterious radio signals from outer space; alien life source a possibility, believe astronomers

Is it possible that Earth is receiving signals from outer space which could be that of some extra terrestrial life source? A new research paper has not ruled out this possibility.

The paper dated 30 March 2015 is titled Discrete Steps in Dispersion Measures Of Fast Radio Bursts. It explores the origin behind recent radio signals from space and considers "an artificial source (human or non-human)," as a possible source.

What's even more interesting about Windows XP's 16.94 percent of the desktop PC market is that it once again has eclipsed the number of Windows 8 and 8.1 users combined.

FBI Uncovers Another Of Its Own Plots, Senator Feinstein Responds By Saying We Should Censor The Internet

As you may have heard, yesterday the FBI "uncovered" yet another of its own terrorist plots, the latest in a very long line of "terrorist plots" the FBI has "uncovered" -- in which the details always show that it was an undercover FBI "informant" (often doing this to get off leniently for some other issue), who more or less goads hapless, naive people, into a "plot" that had no real chance of ever happening. This appears to be the same sort of thing.

Smile, NYPD Officers, You're Being Recorded: "The NYPD detective who was caught on video chewing out an Uber driver has been stripped of his shield and gun"

Years ago, if someone told you a story about an NYPD officer lambasting a taxi driver, it was easy to imagine that the encounter wasn't actually all that egregious. Sure, maybe the cop overreacted, but you weren't there, so who knows what really happened? The person telling you the story could be exaggerating. And maybe in your experience cops don't verbally berate people for nothing. If you're not poor, or an immigrant, or a member of a minority group, you may go your whole life without witnessing an abusive police officer.

Dome of the Rock erased from kindergarten's Haggadah

Al-Aqsa Mosque replaced with trees in picture of Jerusalem's Western Wall in Kiryat Tivon nursery school's Passover booklet. 'This is not the kind of education I would like my children to receive,' says shocked father.

A Passover Hagaddah handed out to children in a municipal kindergarten in the northern town of Kiryat Tivon includes a picture of the Western Wall without the Dome of the Rock behind it.

Ofir Spiegler ran across the picture when his daughter brought the Hagaddah home before the Passover vacation. He discovered that the page which says "Next year in a rebuilt Jerusalem" includes a picture of the Western Wall with the Temple Mount and trees behind it. The Dome of the Rock, a Muslim mosque famous for its large golden dome, is nowhere to be seen.

Islamic Jew-hatred’ ads with Hitler appear on Philly buses

I wonder if I should tell you about the Zionist/NaZi connections? That they were (are) one and the same? That the "Jewish Holocaust" was really the "Shnorrer Holocaust" (poor Jewish Holocaust): those Jews who were refuseniks against the Zionist cult?

That same occult underpinnings of Zionism, NaZism are the same for Islamofascism, the Muslim Brotherhood (now al Qaeda and ISIS), based in the Cairo Lodge, saved by Allen Dulles and the CIA, removed to Saudi Arabia, after Nasser tried to suppress this heretical Islamic movement?

That Saudi Arabia and Israel are the evil step-brothers in the Rothschild plan to use Israel as the center-piece for the Satanic New World Order centered on the rebuilt Temple of Solomon in Jerusalem atop what is now the Al-Aqsa Mosque?

Federal appeals court to weigh Hillary Clinton documents

Information advocate Larry Klayman began years ago, trying to see Hillary Clinton’s emails he thinks will prove she leaked Israeli war plans to a reporter.

“If you believe what Mrs. Clinton says, then you believe that bears don’t live in the woods,” Klayman said.

Now, in light of her personal server situation, he pleaded with three judges to intervene & fast.

“The servers of Mrs. Clinton, even though she’s brazenly admitted she’s wiped everything clean should be taken into custody and give them to a forensic expert to see if any of those emails can be retrieved,” said Klayman.

Clinton’s lawyer says it’s pointless, that “no emails reside on the server or on any backup systems.”

Adding she’s got nothing to hide and in fact: “to be clear, she remains ready to appear at a hearing open to the American public.”

A nuclear deal with Iran based on current framework will “threaten the survival of Israel”, said PM Benjamin Netanyahu, warning it would increase the risk of a “horrific war.”

In a phone conversation with the US President, the Israeli Prime Minister expressed his opposition to a framework agreement reached with Israel on Thursday.

Netanyahu has once again called for a “better deal” insisting that the only way to reach it would be “standing firm and increasing the pressure on Iran.”

Netanyahu warned that if the final deal due to be signed in June, fell in line with the current framework, it would “increase the risks of nuclear proliferation in the region and the risks of a horrific war.”

"We have just agreed that Iran will be an industrial-strength nuclear state and that it will never be any more than one year away from having a nuclear weapon," he said.

Voices of Holocaust Survivors Resound in Words of Grandchildren

Israel prize winner and this generation’s most gifted Talmudist, David Weiss Halivni, who was born in Sighet, Romania, a year and a day before his friend and fellow sighter, Elie Wiesel, wistfully commented, “You know that Elie and I were not the most gifted of our class.” His playful insight kept coming back to me as I read the essays in “God, Faith & Identity From the Ashes.” Edited by Menachem Rosensaft, this work features short but powerful essays by some 88 contributors from 16 countries. Diverse as they may be, they have one experience in common: All are children or grandchildren of Holocaust survivors. The authors were chosen for their prominence as writers and artists, rabbis and cantors, political leaders and generals, lawyers and judges, and professors and scholars. They are a who’s who of their generation and they reflect the diverse, conflicting and often contradictory ways that the Holocaust has affected the succeeding generations.

The famous rap artist was in Austin for the South by Southwest music conference when he stopped a Texas State Trooper to ask for a quick Instagram photo with him.

Yemen or Iran: Which One is in US Sights?

The situation in the Middle East has been deteriorating since the US invasion of Iraq in 2003. Whatever has happened in the region since then was the result of US intervention into the internal affairs of the Middle East countries, let it be Tunisia, Libya, Egypt, Syria or Yemen. In an interview with Vice News, President Obama said the rise of Islamic State (IS, also known as ISIS/ISIL) can be directly linked to America’s excursion into Iraq under Bush. «Two things: One is, ISIL is a direct outgrowth of Al-Qaeda in Iraq that grew out of our invasion,» Obama said in an interview with VICE News. «Which is an example of unintended consequences.

Cell Tower Problems to Know About

Something is cropping up all over Los Angeles, California, like poisonous mushrooms, with equally toxic effects, but it’s not poisonous mushrooms.

It’s the standard cell tower, along with RF and EMF public relations pitches that are generated. Let’s hear what’s really happening in everyday, on-the-ground life, especially in ‘cell tower haven’ Los Angeles, California.

Concerned Los Angelinos feel there are several issues regarding all the cell towers being constructed in their area, but the most prominent concerns are health effects from EMFs and Constitutional 4th Amendment privacy matters. Numerous groups around the USA also are working on these very same issues. Maybe readers will become activists after having read this information. Those 4th Amendment Constitutional issues are being considered by a member of Congress on behalf of the LA activists. I hope to report more on that as things develop.

Portage resident DelRea Good said she did not immediately pull over for the flashing lights behind her because, as a 52-year-old woman traveling alone at 11:21 p.m. on a dark county road, she was concerned for her safety.
