Industrial GMO Food Threats & The Global Monsanto Take Down

The debate over GMO safety and risks stems from the fact that the definition is too generalized, or too ambiguous. The mainstream conversation about its pseudo-science always favors the corporations behind it.

But mere scientific definition is not enough to circumvent the actual disastrous experience, i.e. those glaring facts about its negative effects outside the GMO laboratories.

Monsanto Suffers Legal Blackeye in Mexico

Previously, the most populous nation of the world, China has rejected the renewal of GMO use in its farms. Now, it’s Mexico’s turn to kick the food manipulators out.

The only caveat is: legal measures are simply not enough. People in the fields need to replace the seeds and completely avoid buying them from underground channels.

Grassroot information drive against GMO should be amplified.

Monsanto Chemical in Europeans’ Urine

How much proof should we need before this evil we know as Monsanto be extinguished from the face of the planet?

If governments are not capable of eradicating deadly corporations such as this one, then they too are nothing but corporate stooges pretending to be regulators.

Residents of 18 European states have been tested positively to traces of glyphosate, a globally used weed killer, the study says. It remains unclear how the chemical used on Monsanto GMO crops got in people’s bodies.

It turns out that 44 per cent of volunteers had it in their urine, but it is yet unclear how the herbicide got into their systems.

“These results suggest we are being exposed to glyphosate in our everyday lives,” Adrian Bebb, spokesperson of environmental group Friends of the Earth (FoE) said in a statement.

The study, carried out between March and May 2013, showed that proportions of positive samples varies between countries, with Malta (90 per cent) , Germany (70 per cent), UK (70 per cent)  and Poland being “the most positive samples” and Macedonia and Switzerland – “the lowest”.

“Our testing highlights a serious lack of action by public authorities across Europe and indicates that this weed killer is being widely overused,” the group said.

Glyphosate is essentially used on plants including grasses, sedges, broad-leaved weeds and woody plants as well as great variety of genetically modified crops. Glyphosate is the active ingredient in Monsanto’s herbicide Roundup, which is sprayed in large amounts on genetically engineered, so-called “Roundup Ready,” crops.

“It is crucial for growing genetically modified (GM) crops, many of which are modified to withstand glyphosate,” FoE said.

All volunteers, who provided their urine samples, are people from European cities; they had no contact with glyphosate or used products containing it in the run-up to the tests.

History: Global Collateral Accounts

We have been mentioning Collateral Accounts for more than two years in this blog, and while we understood what its implications for the future are, most of us don’t really know the whole story.

Below is a concise review of its history.

It would also help the reader to read The Corporation: History and Revolution, and this article to strengthen his understanding on the subject.

Neil Keenan Update: A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GLOBAL COLLATERAL ACCOUNTS

Posted on June 8, 2013 by Jean

The history behind the Global Collateral Accounts is vast and complex, and reaches back some 250 years. For the purposes of this brief overview, we will focus on two key elements which are now headlining stories around the world: debt, and gold.

The Western banking oligarchy’s current global control can be traced back to the Rothschild family’s dominance of international banking in the early years of the 19th century. The long-term strategy of the elite banking and royal bloodline families was simple: gain control of the global gold supply in order to maintain power through the control of global currency and its underlying collateral.  Gold and Debt – that is the essence of this story.

Where Did the Gold Come from and to Whom Does It Belong?

For two thousand years, the gold of the world flowed east toward China, along the Silk Road, from the Roman Empire, on through to the Byzantine and the Spanish, in exchange for the silks, spices, and treasures of the East.  When the bankers of Europe decided to seek control of the world financial system, control of this gold became essential.

Who created the Global Collateral Accounts and why?

Operation Golden Lily is the well-documented story of the Japanese gold-collecting teams, which infiltrated key gold-holding nations well in advance of the military invasions of China and other nations, with the express intent of seizing the hundreds of thousands of metric tons of gold that had accumulated in Asia (primarily in China).  The Nazi gold-collecting system is well-known, but the Japanese accumulated a far greater hoard, with the knowledge and cooperation of certain European banking interests.

Where is the gold and how did it get there?

The “official” total for the entire amount of gold said to be above ground since humanity first began mining the precious metal is approximately 160,000 metric tons. Evidence now indicates that a more accurate figure is well in excess of two million metric tons. During World War Two, the Japanese dug tunnels and bunkers throughout Southeast Asia to store the gold – primarily in Indonesia, Thailand, and The Phillipines.  After the war, the gold was discovered by the Allies, and was incorporated into a system set up by the European central bankers before the war for this very purpose.  The exact total of the wealth in the off-ledger accounts is not known, but is said to be in the thousands of trillions of dollars in gold, platinum, and gems, in addition to an undetermined amount in Federal Reserve notes and other currencies.

How did the nations come to agree that the Accounts were to be used for humanitarian programs?

At the Bretton Woods Conference in 1944, when the soon-to-be-victorious Allies met to create a new global financial system, the International Monetary Fund was created.  In the late 1940’s, President Sukarno of Indonesia was appointed monetary controller of behalf of the depositors to monitor and implement the Global Accounts for redevelopment purposes.

How did the banking elite abuse the Accounts?

The central banking families had already put in place essential structures to seize and control this wealth: the Bank of International Settlements, the International Monetary Fund, the Council on Foreign Relations, and the United Nations, all of which were funded by elite banking figures, including the Rockefellers and Warburgs. The agreements to use the funds for development were neglected, and the banking elite proceeded to use them for their own ends, blocking the depositors from access. President Sukarno of Indonesia had been appointed “M1” or Monetary Controller of the Accounts (as much of the assets are stored in hidden bunkers in Indonesia), but he was removed from power after making a deal with John F. Kennedy to use the funds to back new U.S. Treasury dollars, in a direct move against the central bankers’ power. Kennedy’s assassination prevented this move from succeeding.

The central bankers put in place a system that allows the Federal Reserve to block anyone but banking elite insiders from using the Accounts, thus blocking the actual owners – the depositors – from utilizing the assets for humanitarian programs, as originally intended.

Who is Neil Keenan and what is his relationship to the Global Accounts?

The emergence of Neil Keenan at the cutting edge of these events can be traced to the theft in 2009 by Vatican financial insider Daniele dal Bosco of $144.5 billion in Federal Reserve notes which were entrusted to Mr. Keenan by the Dragon Family, the group of ancient wealthy clans in Asia who are the legitimate owners of vast amounts of gold in the off-ledger Global Accounts. The Dragon Family has been attempting for decades to utilize the Accounts for their originally intended purpose, and sought out Keenan’s help because of his reputation as a well-connected, tough-minded international businessman.  The story of this theft, and of Mr. Keenan’s filing of a trillion-dollar lawsuit against elite figures and institutions (including the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, The World Bank, the Italian government, the Italian Financial Police, Silvio Berlusconi, and others) was first revealed by Benjamin Fulford, former Forbes Magazine financial editor for Asia, who traveled to Italy to conduct initial investigations, where an attempt was made on his life. The story was then taken up by best-selling author David Wilcock (who then also received death threats), confirming the story in an investigative article on his influential blog.  The 110-page lawsuit, first filed in New York federal court, can be viewed at this link.

In addition to his lawsuit (which he subsequently withdrew in order to re-file in a more effective jurisdiction), Keenan also filed a Cease and Desist order (available upon request) on behalf of the Dragon Family against a Who’s Who of the cabal power structure, putting them on notice that they were defrauding the Global Accounts, and would be prosecuted for any further fraud.  This Cease and Desist names George Herbert Walker Bush, George W Bush, Queen Elizabeth II, the United Nations, Ban Ki Moon, David Rockefeller, Hillary Clinton, and a host of other world figures and organizations who are in the inner circle of the cabal.

The bonds which were stolen from Mr. Keenan were Federal Reserve notes given to the Dragon Family in payment for the gold deposited in the Accounts – notes which the Federal Reserve continually blocked from utilization. Mr. Keenan’s lawsuit represents the first formidable attempt to defeat this theft.

As may be expected, his life is in danger.  He has survived four assassination attempts to date, and now has protection in place from numerous allies around the world.  Mr. Keenan is currently in Indonesia, finalizing agreements with the Indonesian elders, and Chinese officials holding lineal claim to the majority of the assets in the Accounts.

Mr. Keenan is in possession of key documents, such as the original of the Green Hilton Memorial Agreement between Kennedy and Sukarno, and the “Black Book,” secret records of the Accounts.  Numerous other pieces of evidence can be provided. In addition to Mr. Keenan’s participation, other key players may be brought to the table as part of the interview process, including Indonesians involved in the guardianship of the Assets, powerful Asian financial officials, and others. We propose immediate discussions to explore this possibility.

Monsanto Gives Up Europe

GMO

The company that’s been playing God with all of us is giving up its influence in Europe.

Monsanto epitomizes all that is evil in the world of Corporatocracy we are all in.

We should be aware that this company is everywhere.

It’s almost surreal, but it’s true. Monsanto has officially give up its fight to spread genetically modified seeds and plants throughout Europe.

In a time when the power and political influence of Monsanto Co. seems nearly insurmountable, this is a huge victory for opponents of genetic engineering. For those in the U.S. and other countries where Monsanto’s stranglehold is palpable, it serves as a rally cry to keep up the good fight.

“We’ve come to the conclusion that this has no broad acceptance at the moment,” Monsanto Germany spokeswoman, Ursula Lüttmer-Ouazane, told Taz, a Geman newspaper. According to Reuters, European officials for Monsanto also told Taz “that they were no longer doing any lobby work for cultivation in Europe and not seeking any new approvals for genetically modified plants.”

Just as in the United States, millions of European citizens have spoken out against Monsanto’s unchecked control of agriculture through the use of patented, genetically-modified seeds and plants.

A recent poll in Europe found that 60% of respondents considered “Frankencrops” a threat to public health. In 2007, the United States launched a planned retaliation against European countries for refusing to take GMOs into their food chains. In 2009 Monsanto sued Germany because it banned these products, reported FarmtoConsumer.org in late 2012.

Massive Resignations 6.0

Now, it’s time for some serious stuffs.

We’re happy to see a major fallout from the corporate institutions. Are we now looking at the Final Breakdown of the Slavery System?

In this article, we are surprised to see a number of high-ranking politicians experiencing the crunch, too. From UK, India and here in my country, the so –called public servants are feeling they are no longer relevant.

They never were. They never will be.

We are afraid that anytime soon, we won’t be able to compile every resignation as we are expecting these to keep on coming.

To our delight, of course.

The chairman of Housing New Zealand (HNZ) has stood down because of a potential conflict of interest.

Housing Minister Nick Smith today announced he had accepted the resignation of board chairman Alan Jackson.

Jackson’s role as a director at Fletcher Building had become an issue because of the building work HNZ was undertaking.

“Dr Jackson wrote to me earlier this week to let me know he would be stepping down as chair to avoid a potential conflict of interest with his role as a director at Fletcher Building,” Smith said.

“Given the scale and pace of new work by Housing New Zealand, including the massive rebuild programme in Christchurch, of which Fletcher Building may potentially tender for, he considered it was untenable to continue in both roles.”

At the end of last month, Smith previously described HNZ’s contribution to the rebuild as “the biggest Government house building programme in Christchurch’s history”.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) – An Israeli judge resigned from a government appeals board on Wednesday after public uproar over reports he had told a courtroom that some girls “enjoy rape”.

Nissim Yeshaya headed a three-member panel hearing a young Israeli woman’s appeal for recognition as a victim of a nationalist attack for having been raped when she was 13, in a crime blamed at the time on four Palestinians.

He had remarked during a session on the case that “there are some young girls who enjoy rape”, an attorney representing the woman told Israeli radio stations on Wednesday.

(WASHINGTON) — President Barack Obama’s top national security adviser Tom Donilon is resigning and will be replaced by U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Susan Rice, marking a significant shakeup to the White House foreign policy team.

A White House official confirmed the personnel changes Wednesday morning ahead of a planned announcement by the president later in the day.

Donilon has been a key foreign policy adviser to Obama since he first took office. But the 58-year-old had been expected to depart sometime this year, with Rice seen as the likely candidate to replace him.

Rice, a close Obama confidante, came under withering criticism from Republicans as part of the investigations into the deadly attack on a U.S. compound in Benghazi, Libya. Rice, relying on talking points from the intelligence community, said in television interviews that the attacks were likely spontaneous, which was later proven incorrect.

According to the latest Associated Press feed report, the confirmation comes from Obama just minutes ago today. While this is certainly the beginning of the massive resignations that should (and will likely) come from the massive exposure on the IRS corruption that has been covered by major news outlets for the past few days, it is important to remember that the real action here needs to go beyond a few layoffs and more towards criminal charges. At the same time, it is a victory when it comes to the spread of information and the overall impact that syndicated awareness has on the flow of the nation.

Even so-called ‘left’ wing groups were outraged at the fact that the IRS had openly declared financial warfare on all groups considered to be ‘conservative’ in nature, and the admission by the agency here shows that we are facing corruption seated at the deepest levels of United States government wings. Corruption that can be rooted out if enough outcry is presented through all channels of media and social networking — usually staring with the alternative news media and working its way ‘up the ladder’ in popularity until the mainstream is forced to cover it.

A Liberal Democrat MP who is fighting a high court claim that he sexually assaulted a vulnerable constituent has stood down from the party whip – two years after the Lib Dems were first warned about the allegations.

Mike Hancock, 67, the MP for Portsmouth South, made the decision after holding a meeting with Nick Clegg and senior party figures on Monday afternoon.

The decision follows accusations in court papers, first disclosed in the Guardian, that he formed an inappropriate relationship with the woman over a 10-month period after she approached him for help with noisy neighbours. Hancock is planning to fight the writ.

The Lib Dems were first contacted by the 39-year-old alleged victim by letter, but she did not receive a response.

Patrick Mercer, the former shadow minister, has resigned from the Conservative party after being caught up in a sting by journalists posing as lobbyists, having failed to declare £2,000 of the £4,000 they paid him.

The Conservative MP for Newark said he was resigning the Tory whip immediately “to save my party embarrassment”, and would not stand at the next general election. It is understood that he had been approached by a fake lobbying firm seeking help in parliament for a fake client, believed to be related to Fiji.

The move comes before a BBC Panorama programme in conjunction with Daily Telegraph journalists, due to be broadcast next week, which will allege that he has broken lobbying rules.

The lead attorneys probing a deadly pipeline explosion for California regulators have abruptly quit the investigation, putting the integrity of the probe in jeopardy, a San Bruno city official said Wednesday.

The four California Public Utilities Commission lawyers removed themselves from the matter earlier this week, just as the agency is poised to decide a fine for Pacific Gas & Electric Co., which owns the pipeline that ruptured in San Bruno, City Manager Connie Jackson said.

“Those attorneys worked on the briefs that the CPUC will use as its basis for holding PG&E accountable,” Jackson said. “This absolutely will jeopardize the integrity of the process that has gone on for the last 2 1/2 years, and San Bruno cannot stand still and let that happen.”

'No confidence': 13 of Boston's 14 deputy fire chiefs co-signed a letter blasting their boss Steve Abraira (pictured) saying that he showed no leadership at the Boston Marathon bombing

The embattled Boston Fire Chief Steve E. Abraira resigned on Monday after clashes with senior staff over his management style and his perceived weak handling of the Boston Marathon bombings.

Abraira was the first chief in Boston Fire Department’s history hired from outside of its powerful union and since the April 15th terror attack he came under pressure from his 13 deputy chief, all who have risen up through the city ranks.

He will leave his post on June 7th and Deputy Chief John Hasson will step in to take temporary charge according to Stephen MacDonald, a spokesman for the Boston fire department.

In May, the Boston Globe obtained a leaked letter that 13 of the city’s 14 deputy fire chiefs co-signed on April 26th signalling a vote of no-confidence in Chief Steve Abraira.

‘His justification for failing to take action is indefensible,’ they wrote.

That was just 11 days after the bombings at the finish line of the marathon killed three people and injured more than 250 others.

In his resignation letter, Abraira said that he was leaving his job because of the ‘baseless attacks by the Deputy Chiefs, especially their actions of making this a matter of public debate by leaking their letter of April 26th to the press, has made it impossible for me to continue to do my job.’

The Telegraph and the BBC’s Panorama have been investigating the former shadow minister over a major lobbying scandal and is poised to publish a series of revelations about Mr Mercer tomorrow.

He was yesterday asked questions over his activities and was expected to be suspended from the Parliamentary Conservative party this evening.

However, the Conservative MP for Newark is thought to have resigned the whip and is poised to make a statement.

The scandal, details of which will be exposed by The Telegraph and Panorama, involved Mr Mercer lobbying on behalf of Fiji.

Parliamentary records show that he asked a question about the regime’s suspension from the Commonwealth and put down an Early Day Motion – a device used by MPs to draw attention to certain causes.

The Prime Minister’s Office has called on Rathgeber to resign as an MP and run in a byelection.

Rathgeber’s announcement comes hours after members of his own party pushed changes to his private member’s bill calling for the disclosure upon request of any public sector salaries with earnings of approximately $188,000 or more.

But a series of amendments at a committee meeting earlier Wednesday resulted in major changes to the maximum salary amount.

“I’m obviously very, very disappointed both with the government position and certainly with the (committee’s Conservative) colleagues, many of whom philosophically support this legislation unequivocally, but seemed powerless to resist the instructions that were given to them by the (Prime Minister’s Office), by the whip or wherever the final instructions came from,” Mr. Rathgeber told the Globe and Mail.

Rathgeber went on to say that transparency is key in light of the ongoing controversy surrounding Senate spending.

With just two days left in the calendar for the 15th Congress, Enrile tendered his irrevocable resignation as Senate president “as a matter of personal honor and dignity.”

Senate President Pro-Tempore Jinggoy Estrada took over Enrile’s post for the day.

“Old age may have physically impaired my vision. But let me assure all of you, I can still see and read clearly the handwriting on the wall. I need not be told by anyone when it is time for me to go,” Enrile said.

He opened the second to the last plenary session of the Senate with a privilege speech in which he voiced his grief over the failed Senate bid of his son Cagayan Rep. Jack Enrile.

MANILA, Philippines—Senate Majority Leader Vicente “Tito” Sotto III formally announced his resignation from his post on Thursday, the last session day of the 15th Congress.

“As the curtain falls on the regular session of the 15th Congress, and its legal life draws its last breath at end of June this year, please consider my position as Majority Leader co-terminus therewith,” Sotto said before the Senate adjourned sine die past 7 p.m. The next Congress will commence in July.

With this statement, Sotto told reporters after the interview that he is now deemed resigned.

“Yes, resignation as Majority Leader although kung tutuusin   pwede pa nga, if I don’t say that and I do not do that then I will be a carryover up to the 16th Congress, until July 22. E ayoko na nga e,” he said.

“As of today, I consider myself resigned,” he pointed out.

Asked why he did not categorically say the word “resignation” in his manifestation on the floor, Sotto said, “Kawawa naman yung mga empleyado.  Sa akin naman kasi I think it’s no big deal. My resignation is no big deal. Talaga naming sa July 22, malamang palitan din naman kami so I just want it ahead.”

Sotto’s move came just a day after Senator Juan Ponce-Enrile stepped down from his post Wednesday.

Vice Pope Bertone Resigning

VATICAN'S SECRETARY OF STATE, CARDINAL TARCISIO BERTONE

This just in. Thanks, Jean.

The second in command in the House of the Demons is resigning. Cardinal Bertone is said to have handed his resignation letter, as the present Secretary of State, to Mr. Bergoglio, i.e. the pope.

Jesuit “Mr. Pro-poor” Bergoglio is yet to decide about the matter.

Both these resignations can be considered as the icing on the cake for the massive high-profile resignations that have been happening since 2008.

bertoni resigningVATICAN CITY — We are living historic times, whereby we will see the final destruction of the Vatican just as the prophesies foretold.

Cardinal Bertone hands in resignation letter to Pope Francis, Vatican insider confirms

VATICAN CITY — A source within the Vatican announced today that Tarcisio Bertone, the most powerful official in the Roman Curia and one of five Cardinals convicted by a Common Law Court of Justice last February, has prepared his letter of resignation.
Cardinal Bertone has been the effective “king maker” at the papacy for many years, and helped force Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, from office on February 11 just days after an arrest warrant was to be issued against Ratzinger.
According to the Vatican insider,

“Bertone knows that if he’s arrested while in office, all of the Vatican archives and his records are subject to seizure, and they can never let that happen. Once he’s resigned, he can do like Ratzinger and claim immunity from prosecution as a ‘private citizen’, something the Lateran Treaty allows. These guys understand the power of the common law court arrest warrant, even if others don’t.”

Bertone’s resignation also coincides with the recent formation of a new Italian movement to expose child torture and trafficking within the Vatican, announced by the ITCCS and Rete L’Abuso in Savona, Italy on May 23.
This campaign will commence on September 20 in Rome with civil disobedience actions and church occupations, and demands to the Italian government to revoke the Lateran Treaty with the Vatican. (see itccs.org, May 24 posting).

ITCCS Field Secretary Kevin Annett is in Europe investigating this latest development.

Further communiques on the impending Bertone resignation and the September 20 campaign will be forthcoming.

The Revolution Intensifies 2.0

The effects of the cyclical event which could only happen every 25,920 years, when solar energy is at its peak, are manifesting in a very fascinating display of increased awareness over the greatest lie of them all – fiat currency.

frankfurt-ECB-rally

Fiat Currency represents not just the bogus economy but the whole Fiat Establishment, i.e. Religion as Fiat Spirituality, Corporate Democratic Government as Fiat Republic, etc., that by virtue of deceit, surgical and mass murders able to usurp lawful indigenous systems to feed and sustain itself.

Day by day, the ordinary man on the street is learning why and who are responsible for the deteriorating quality of life that each of us must endure.

In Europe and elsewhere, they are revolting in a big way.

Taksim Square Istanbul Turkey

The Turkish revolution is on. They’ve refused, among other issues, to go to war with their neighbors, Syria and Iran, as their Cabalist government would have done long ago.

There certainly is a massive awakening in that corner of the world as the current civil unrest is sparked by a mere clamor to preserve Gezi Park from being transformed into a giant shopping mall.

Here’s PolicyMic.com giving some light on the evolution of the Turkish Revolution that is still happening now.

“Turkey is buckling as its youth calls for the resignation of the prime minister and his corrupt regime.

Yesterday’s anti-government protests in Istanbul have quickly spread to almost all major cities in Turkey, totaling over 90 demonstrations thus far. Most of the protesters are youth who are worried that the prime minister’s government is becoming both more authoritarian and more Islamic, threatening Turkey’s secular state.”

“Friday’s protests began on the relatively-smaller issue of Gezi Park. As one of the last remaining green spaces in Istanbul, many want the park to remain, well, a park. However, Erdogan and his administration have plans to redevelop the area into a giant shopping mall, and they have ignored the public outcry against the park’s demolition. Turkish youth began peacefully protesting the redevelopment plans this morning with singing and book readings in the public space, but as more people congregated, the protest (while still peaceful) began to take on more of an anti-Erdogan theme. And that’s when the police arrived, turning a peaceful protest into what is already being termed Bloody Friday.”

WE ARE BRADLEY MANNING

“Demonstrations are taking place all over the world in support of Bradley Manning, the US army private Whistleblower who leaked intelligence to WikiLeaks.

Manning’s trail will start Monday at the Fort Meade military base in Baltimore, some three years after having been accused of the largest leak of classified materials in the history of the United States. Among other things, he has been charged with ‘aiding the enemy’ – which could potentially land him in jail with a life sentence without parole.

Already the stenographers who were meant to create daily transcripts of the trial have been denied press passes and will not now be at the trial.  “

MERE DISTRACTIONS

People from all over the world are expressing their anger and frustrations from:

  • their shrinking economic power
  • deliberate manipulation of the food they ate
  • wanton destruction of the environment
  • deteriorating quality of public services
  • obvious scripts behind false flag operations
  • suppression of the Truth

Not too many of them have realized it yet, i.e. that they don’t really need to ask any government for change because it can’t afford to be. Government is there because we can’t govern ourselves. We prefer other people to do the hard work for us instead of us taking more responsibility for our future.

The act of protesting to demand for change from an entity that is design to enslave all of us is lesser than a pipe dream. The key to real freedom is to empower oneself by learning the methods of living off-grid.

If we have to revolt, as we feel to be doing right now, we should go beyond rhetorics. We should tear down the system to pieces. And that requires actions other than marching in droves. Or, are we marching to exert pressure on all Oathtakers to take visible action now?

white house eviction notice

We must remember, most of what we see in the news are mere distractions to arrest our attention to the real enemy. Once again, the enemy is sporting a pro-Mankind marketing strategy.

https://i1.wp.com/www.caritasvietnam.org/upload/images_product/full_images/a169f891ae0b43d42c15e81de8397fcc.jpg

Being a Jesuit himself, he is an expert in the gullibility of even the most sophisticated Mind. Early on, he tried to project himself as a pro-poor, kind-hearted Caretaker of the Holy and the Most Supreme.

Just recently, he is asking us to pray for Syria as if prayer is the answer to the bloodshed that even the Vatican, Inc. itself sanctioned thru its subsidiary corporate headquarters in Washington DC, France and City of London.

The Puppeteers are content watching behind the scenes as their puppets manning the institutions are busy trying to fend off these escalating massive protests. The use of strong arm policy would surely keep the revolutionary hearts burning.

But to the Puppeteers, both these protests and the corrupt governments the people are protesting against are mere distractions to keep both groups preoccupied, so they, the Minions of the Dark, could go on with their business of philandering the planet as usual.

In the end, the Revolution is won not by consistent high pitch barking on institutional facades such as governments, but by looking inwards and learning the ways and methods of living off-grid.

Learn about sustainable food production like permaculture, free energy generation and free medicine, i.e. as described in our eBook Towards Healthcare Emancipation. These are the primary keys to Real Freedom.

Critical knowledge of living independently is what the enemy really is wary about.

So, once we have made our point clear in all the squares around the world, we must go back to where we came from and do implement real solutions inside our every home.

Never ever beg for institutional solutions again. We are all old enough to understand that they will never do it.

The internet is here to Empower yourself.

Learn and do something.

One of the significant sources of funds for the Cabal is the healthcare industry which registered a whopping $2.7 trillion in 2011, and is projected to soar to $3.6 trillion in 2016, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.

Massive Resignations 5.0

Previously, we have documented these uncommon high-profile corporate shakeups which were highlighted by the Pontifical Resignation early this year. Massive CEO resignations are still continuing.

Most peculiar is this array of resignations from mining, transport, telecommunications, and even the pharmaceuticals, suggesting that these critical components of the real economy are experiencing the crunch in hard terms.

But we have yet to witness the royal resignation of the bogus Queen of England.

To all The Awakened around the world: Keep pushing. We’re almost there!

Alfredo Saenz resigned as CEO of Banco Santander, a move that marked an end of his controversial tenure at the bank. WSJ’s David Enrich assesses Mr. Saenz’s record, which included a conviction for making false criminal accusations in 2009.

MADRID— Alfredo Sáenz, who helped turn Banco Santander SA SAN.MC -0.77%from a provincial lender into a global banking power, quit his job as its chief executive Monday after a legal and political controversy over his criminal conviction for pressure he put on four debtors nearly two decades ago.

Santander, the largest bank in the euro zone by market value, announced his resignation following a wave of criticism of the Spanish government after it relaxed standards of conduct for bankers in a move that allowed Mr. Sáenz to keep his job.

Mr. Sáenz stepped down following discussions with officials at the Bank of Spain, the country’s central bank, according to people familiar with the talks. Two people said the central bank had indicated to Mr. Sáenz it was likely to conclude he didn’t belong in a senior role at the bank.

The Moody’s downgrade comes just weeks after the bank dropped its bid to acquire over 600 branches from Lloyd’s Banking Group.

Moody’s Investors Service had downgraded the bank’s deposit and senior debt ratings to Ba3, from A3, following its lowering of the bank’s baseline credit assessment (BCA) to b1 from baa1.

The head of Austrian bank Raiffeisen has resigned over a series of personal property deals.

Herbert Stepic denied wrongdoing in using front companies in the Caribbean and Asia to buy flats in Singapore in 2006 and 2008, but said he was stepping down to spare his bank from negative publicity .

The deals – which were exposed by the Offshore Leaks investigative journalism project – are now under investigation by Austria’s central bank, its Financial Market Authority watchdog and Raiffeisen, to see if any law or internal guidelines were violated.

Stepic, who has very much been the public face of the bank, told a news conference that the Singapore property deals were above board because he had made the investment with money taxed in Austria and had also paid tax on revenue from a sale.

He insisted he did not need to notify his bank or regulators about three apartments in Singapore he bought via ‘project companies’ set up with the help of Swiss bank UBS in the British Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.

As he announced his resignation, the 66-year-old said he was proud of what he had accomplished in four decades at Raiffeisen, creating tens of thousands of jobs in the former Communist East and making 800 million euros in profit over the past five years as the financial crisis raged.

SEOUL–The head of South Korea’s state-owned Woori Finance Holdings Co. (053000.SE) resigned Sunday, describing as “regretful” the failure to privatize the banking giant three times in as many years, as the government plans to try a fourth time to sell its 57% stake in the bank, which is worth around $4.8 billion.

The Financial Services Commission is now expected to push for a swift privatization after saying earlier this month that it hoped to reveal a new privatization plan by the end of the first half of the year, analysts said.

Lee Pal-seung, the chairman and chief executive of Woori Finance, said in a statement Sunday that he would step down once his replacement was appointed, a process the company said is likely to take around two months. “There were three attempts until last year to privatize Woori Finance, but all failed, which I find regretful,” he said.

Saudi Telecom Co’s chief executive Khaled Al-Ghoneim has resigned after less than a year in the job, the latest senior management executive to quit as the former monopoly tries to arrest a sustained profit slump.

Al-Ghoneim was appointed in June 2012 following the resignation of his predecessor Saud Al-Daweesh two months earlier, while the heads of the state-controlled firm’s domestic and international operations have also quit over the past 12 months.

STC has spent billions of dollars on foreign acquisitions in the past decade, according to Reuters calculations, buying into many markets including Turkey, Indonesia, Kuwait and Bahrain. Yet it remains reliant on home, with the kingdom providing 68 percent of revenue in 2012.

The company’s shares have fallen 5.8 percent this year, underperforming the main Saudi index, which is up 3.7 percent.

STC said it had accepted Al-Ghoneim’s resignation, according to a statement on Saudi Arabia’s stock exchange website, but did not name a replacement or say when Ghoneim would leave his position.

The Gulf’s second-largest telecom operator by market value made a net profit of 7.28 billion riyals ($1.94 billion) in 2012, down 43 percent from a 2006 peak as tougher competition from home and write-offs from foreign units weighed on the bottom line.

Al-Ghoneim joined STC from Riyadh-based Al Elm Information Security Company, a firm far lesser in size and scope than the state telco. – Reuters

The transformation of Dish Network Corp. continued Monday with a surprise announcement that Charlie Ergen will step down as president and CEO.

Ergen, Dish’s founder and spiritual leader, will remain on as chairman. His successor, Joseph Clayton, will start his new role on June 20, 2011.

Clayton, a 38-year telecom and consumer electronics industry vet, most recently served as chairman of Sirius Satellite Radio (now Sirius XM) and before that, was president of Global Crossing‘s North America division, and president and CEO of Frontier Communications Corp.. On the CE front, he once served as EVP of marketing and sales for the Americas and Asia for Thomson (nowTechnicolor SA).

Clayton said in a statement that his “working relationship with Charlie spans nearly 20 years, and I look forward to building on Dish Network’s legacy of innovation and value in TV entertainment.”

Why this matters

The big move up top comes at a critical point in Dish’s history as it reinvents itself into much more than a satellite TV service company. Dish did not offer a reason for the shift, but it should allow Ergen to focus on the long-term strategic direction of the company while leaving the day-to-day tending and feeding to Clayton.

It’s also the first time Ergen has relinquished the CEO role. Carl Vogel, a long-time cable vet who is still a Dish vice chairman, stepped down as Dish president in 2008.

Electrical engineering conglomerate ABB has been making major moves into the renewable energy sector in recent years, driven by CEO Joe Hogan.

Rio Tinto revealed the losses in connection with its two most significant acquisitions in recent years. Immediately the company`s chief executive Tom Albanese left after more than 30 years working for the company.

Rio Tinto bought Canadian aluminum company Alcon in 2007, right before the start of the global economic recession. Some have called the $38 billion deal “disastrous”. In 2011 the company reported a 59% drop in profits followed by a $8.9 billion write-down on the value of the aluminum assets. As the results went public chief executive Albanese said he would not take his annual bonus.

AFTER months of speculation, BHP Billion announced on Wednesday that Marius Kloppers is stepping down as CEO and director of the world’s largest diversified resources miner.

Mr Kloppers had won kudos for leading BHP through the global financial crisis in much better shape than its peers, but disappointed investors with his expensive bid for shale-gas assets in the US, which led to $2.8bn in write-downs and cost him his bonus last year.

He is the third head of a major mining conglomerate to step down in recent months, following the resignations of Rio Tinto’s Tom Albanese and Anglo American’s Cynthia Carroll.

The announcement came as BHP Billiton released its financial results for the half-year to the end of December, saying underlying earnings before interest and tax fell 38.3% to $9.8bn, while attributable profit, excluding exceptional items of $5.7bn, was down 43.4%. It took $3bn in write-downs on its aluminium and nickel assets, in line with market forecasts.

ALAMEDA — Amy Trask resigned from the Raiders on Saturday, ending her tenure as the only female CEO in the NFL and as one of the highest-ranking women in American professional sports.

A fierce advocate for late owner Al Davis, Trask found her role reshaped under Mark Davis, who took over for his father upon his death in October 2011.

Since the arrival of general manager Reggie McKenzie in January 2012, Trask’s primary duties were to generate revenue through marketing and ticket sales and help the organization in its quest for a new stadium.

The Raiders are in the final year of their lease at O.co Coliseum. Trask has publicly pushed for a new stadium on the current site, with

File: Oakland Raiders CEO Amy Trask talks during a press conference at the Oakland Coliseum. (Nick Lammers/staff 11/2/05)

no deal on the horizon.

In an email to reporters, Trask said, “Earlier today, I informed Mark Davis of my decision to leave the Raiders. Having honored a commitment that I made to effectuate a smooth transition and transfer of control, I no longer wish to remain with the organization.

“For over a quarter of a century, it was my honor and my privilege to work for the Raiders. I will forever appreciate the opportunity afforded me by Al Davis.”

Trask joined the Raiders in 1987 in the legal department with the club in Los Angeles and was named CEO in 1997.

The Raiders, who have restructured both the football and business side of the organization since the death of Al Davis, acknowledged Trask’s departure with a statement

on the club website:

‘Mark Davis, Carol Davis and the rest of the Raider family would like to thank Amy Trask for her valued contributions to the Raiders over the past 25 years. The Raiders wish her the very best in her future endeavors.”

Neither Trask nor Mark Davis could be reached for comment.

The train wreck that was Ron Johnson’s tenure at J.C. Penney (JCP) is over.

Johnson has stepped down from the top spot nearly 18 months after charging in with big plans to overhaul the retailer and its long-established business model.

His predecessor, Myron Ullman, is returning to lead the company. Investors initially applauded the move, sending shares up more than 12% in after-hours trading Monday. Later in the evening, shares fell back to an 8% loss.

Johnson’s resignation brings to an end one of the more extraordinary business upheavals in recent memory. He made a name for himself leading the retail efforts ofApple (AAPL) and also held a top management position at Target (TGT). He was envisioned as a savior of sorts, and promised to return Penney to profit and make it a fashionable and exciting place to shop.

Johnson tried nixing sale events in favor of everyday low prices, and almost immediately found resistance from shoppers accustomed to Penney’s couponing and discounting culture. He boldly revised the company’s advertising, eschewing value propositions in favor of sparsely elegant and stylish displays that confused customers because they didn’t show prices.

Investors watched in horror as Penney’s stock price plummeted more than 50%.

Pandora chief executive Joe Kennedy announced he would step down from his position during the company’s fourth-quarter earnings call. Shares rose nearly 20 percent on the news.

Kennedy said he will remain at Pandora’s helm — and as its chairman and president — until his successor is named, ending his 10-year run as the online radio company’s top executive.

“I love this business, which I helped create,” Kennedy said in an earnings call with analysts. “But as I approach the end of my tenth year, my head is telling me its time to find a recharging station.”

Under Kennedy’s leadership, the company has grown to take an 8 percent share of the total U.S. radio market, but has failed to regain the $20 per share price that it saw when it began trading publicly in June 2011.

The company did beat analyst expectations, but reported a net loss of 9 cents per share on $427.1 million in revenue. Mobile revenue growth grew 111 percent over the same period last year, outpacing a 70 percent listener hour growth through mobile devices.

The first batch of S-300 air defense complexes has arrived in Syria, President Bashar Assad said in an interview to Lebanon Al-Manar. Assad also said that Syrian army is battling up to 100,000 foreign mercenaries.

Assad revealed that the rest of the S-300 complexes previewed by a Russian-Syrian arms contract will be coming soon, reports RT Arabic (Rusiya Al Yaum), which has confirmed details of the exclusive interview to be broadcast on the Lebanese TV channel at 9pm local time (18:00 GMT) Thursday.

The president promised that the Syrian army will “immediately react” of a new Israeli aggression of Syrian soil, recalling recent bombings of military objects inside Syrian territory by the Israeli Air Force.

He noted that “The Syrian government will not interfere if some kind of Syrian group starts a war to liberate the Golan Heights,” occupied by Israel since the 1967 War.

During the interview, Assad confirmed the presence of Hezbollah fighters in Syria on the Lebanese border, but stressed, that “it is the Syrian army, not Hezbollah, battling the groups of armed rebels and will continue to do so until total elimination of the terrorists.”

The document calls for an investigation into the matter as well as more aid access and protections for the civilian population of Syria.
The ‘foreign fighters’ in question are from the Lebanese Shia movement, Hezbollah, which backed Syrian president, Bashar Assad, fearing that if his regime falls, Lebanon will become Al-Qaeda’s next target.

According to these minutes, released in the Kremlin today by the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment of the Russian Federation (MNRE), Putin was so incensed over the Obama regimes refusal to discuss this grave matter that he refused for three hours to even meet with Kerry, who had traveled to Moscow on a scheduled diplomatic mission, but then relented so as to not cause an even greater rift between these two nations.

Friends of Syria meeting held in Tehran

The latest international ‘Friends of Syria’ meeting took place in the Iranian capital Tehran on Wednesday, gathering representatives from over 40 countries and international organizations under one roof, to discuss Syria’s future over the course of the day. The motto for the meeting was ‘Political Solution, Regional Stability’. Iran, like Russia, is known as a staunch opponent to any foreign meddling in the Syrian crisis, calling for a diplomatic solution to the current crisis between the government of Bashar Assad and rebel elements. It stresses free and democratic elections and national dialogue. Many have also stressed the importance and benefits of the meeting, including the UN-Arab League Special Envoy on Syria, Lakhdar Brahimi, who said “We should help Syria establish a national government and end people’s sufferings.” A top Iranian foreign ministry official also told reporters that “Today’s consultations can help to the attainment of a political solution to the Syrian crisis, and we hope that these consultations will affect the discussions due to be made in the Geneva conference.” He was referring to the upcoming Geneva conference on Syria, designed to address the above questions and pave the way to ending the bloodshed, which in over two years has claimed some 80,000 lives, according to UN estimates.

China has dismissed US claims hackers procured blueprints for America’s most advanced weaponry. Beijing stated the allegations underestimate the Chinese people’s intellect and that China is perfectly capable of producing its own weapons.

A US Science Board report leaked this week alleged the Chinese hackers had obtained access to the designs of two dozen major US weapons systems in what amounted to “billions of dollars of combat advantage to China.”

The Washington Post, who saw a copy of the report, intimated that such information could be used by the Chinese government to speed up the development of their military. An unnamed official told the Post that China had saved themselves “25 years of research and development” by stealing the plans.

Beijing reacted with ire, with Chinese Defense Ministry spokesman Geng Yansheng dismissing the report as ridiculous.

“It both underestimates the Pentagon’s defensive security abilities and the Chinese people’s intelligence,” said Geng in a news briefing.

There, I wrote, “All wheat produced in the United States will now be heavily scrutinized — and possibly even rejected — by other nations that traditionally import U.S. wheat. This obviously has enormous economic implications for U.S. farmers and agriculture.”

KEENAN: The Bridge

Here’s the latest update [May 30, 2013] re Global Settlements and Nelu’s impending release from unjustified incarceration. Nelu is an authority re Global Accounts. His release would mean our freedom, too.

NEIL KEENAN AND GLOBAL ACCOUNTS UPDATE – “THE BRIDGE” – A PERSONAL STATEMENT FROM NEIL KEENAN (VIDEO)

Posted on May 30, 2013

by Neil F. Keenan

May 30, 2013 – I realize it is difficult waiting for the next post.  It is tough in between posts and I do not expect any of you to believe that nothing happens when lots is actually going on. Because we are near the end, I do not want you to miss the Ending.  I would not want to miss the end of a book after reading so many pages, or the final twenty minutes of a movie.  So I will try to bring you up to date so you know some of what actually transpired to get us to “ The End.”   It should create a bridge from one point to another and then finally to Nelu’s release (I hope so).

The strangeness of this period is connected to the questionable activities of Prosecutor Tanti, and of Nelu’s father-in-law Mulyadi—and the news of his admission to Nelu (finally) that all along he was secretly working with Keith Scott.

After our request went out to all of you to call the court on Nelu’s behalf,  you delivered more than 25,000 phone calls and it shut their system down.  When the court had no access to its system they understood we had some strength as well. It got to the point soon after that the Courts contacted our Irish-Korean friend Inchul Kim and politely asked him to keep me away from the courts.  When Kim asked why, they stated “They were all afraid of Mr. Keenan.”

When I was told this I wondered how they could make such a statement when I was on my best behavior and actually was thankful to the courts for their help.  They did not have to help me!  I thank them all to this very day because without them an integral element of Nelu’s case would never have been revealed and we would be to this very moment stuck with what we had.  What was revealed (and rightfully so) by Mr. Ibnu came to light when he asked why did I not show up to testify when I was summoned by the court?  I nearly fell off my chair when I heard this, yet gathered myself and rather than be loud, I just looked at him dumbfounded and asked, “What summons?”  I had been waiting many months for such an official court summons, and never received one despite being told day by day, “It is coming.” Mr. Ibnu and I looked at each other at this point, and the look in our eyes said it all.  Someone in the system suppressed the delivery of this summons.  I wonder who that could be?

We (Inchul, Jo and myself) visited the Lower Court after being advised by the Higher Court to get a statement submitted immediately to them otherwise all would be lost.  This advice was sound and I worked fervently to get one through.  After a long weekend working with Michael and Jean, I was happy with what had been finalized and brought it to the Lower Court on that following Monday.  Of course I expected everything to be okay.  The Higher Court said to do this.  We went and found our dear friend Daisy who is as honest as Day One and a fantastic person and asked her for help.  I trust her enough to ask her to translate and to help us.  She has been so helpful for many months and all my thanks to Daisy from us.  But she was not successful.  I could see she had a problem as she walked down the stairs.  I was ready to walk away when she said that her supervisor told her our statement could not be inserted into the case at this late date.  “The case is closed and in the hands of the Higher Court.”  It was the Higher Court that told us to bring it to the Lower Court, so what could we now do other than walk away?

Again it was Daisy who asked me what I wanted to do.  I said, well, the man said, “No,” so we should leave and return to the Apartment Hotel.  Daisy then asked, “Would you like to speak with him?”  I said, “No, he made his decision.”  It was then Daisy said, “What do you have to lose if you speak with him?”  I said, “Nothing.  But he made his  decision.”  On thinking it through, I then said, “What the hell, we have nothing to lose. Let’s go for it.”

At that time I did not know Mr. Ibnu was Daisy’s boss.  I learned later.  But all the while in his office, I felt  comfortable.  By being the humble yet wise person he is, he put me at ease.  When we both realized the value of the missing summons, Mr. Ibnu told me I would need a cover page for the statement—he decided to insert it into the case for us.  He had already read it and it impressed him such [so much] that he believed it might mitigate Martha Wibawa’s sentence.  He told us how to address the cover page and then went and spoke privately with Daisy.  I am sure this conversation revolved around how well she knew me.  I was very honest with her from the first day I met her, thinking I would testify and Nelu would be released.  Again Daisy would prove to be instrumental.  Immediately we went and completed the cover page with Jo working diligently while Inchul and I discussed the matter.  Again Daisy brought the finalized version upstairs to Mr. Ibnu and it was sent to the Higher Court and then inserted into Nelu’s case file.

It was a few days later that the request from Jean went out to the world to call in and express support for Nelu.  We banged our heads over this one, realizing it could go either way but when push came to shove we decided that the only way for anyone to see we were serious was to just let the request go out to all of you.  We prayed to God it would work.  After Jean’s request that Monday, the lights on the phones began early in the courthouse and continued throughout the day and night.  The court could not work and had to use their own cell phones to get things done.

I did not feel great about it after the assistance they had given us but everyone had to know this was also serious—they had an innocent man in jail and I wanted the opportunity to speak for his release.

It was some time before I realized that the separation of the case took all evidence away from Nelu and gave it to the rightful owner—MULYADI—his father-in-law who stabbed him in the back, the person who believed he was working with Keith Scott but in fact was being used.  It was Mulyadi who was Scott’s spy.  It was Mulyadi who told Scott everything Nelu was doing.  I had never liked that man, always coming for the ride, but never having anything to say.  Then when he thought he had the opportunity he started sending me messages telling me that he was the man to handle the Accounts, not Nelu.  This continued on, but I did not take it seriously.   He even e-mailed photos of himself holding what turned out to be fake notes he had been given—the very notes that would eventually land him in jail (unwittingly trapping his own son-in-law in Keith Scott’s net). I never took him seriously.  He would never be the man—he was not smart enough.  And then he failed the loyalty test.

A few days ago, I went to visit Nelu in prison, and as it was family visiting day, I found myself again with Mulyadi, Nelu, their wives, and Jo and Inchul in the prison visiting room.  I went only to speak with Nelu for a few minutes but Mulyadi, upon learning of the phone systems being shut down in support of Nelu, made his voice clear through Jo that he wanted to know why I was not helping him—only Nelu.  I asked him if he was kidding, and told him I would not raise one finger to assist him.  I told him he should try calling Keith Scott—the guy he worked for, the guy on whose behalf he ended up putting himself and Nelu in prison.   It was translated by Jo, and Mulyadi’s face turned tight and he banged the table, but little did he get from me because I stood up and banged the table as well.

Everyone was watching us and Mulyadi stayed down and continued to ask with his wife’s face on his shoulder why I was helping only Nelu. Mulyadi did not really care if Nelu got out of prison, but he did care if Nelu got out and he stayed in despite the fact that the entire matter was his doing.  Nelu tried to protect him throughout the court hearings never mentioning Mulyadi’s conniving ways, but while Nelu was trying to help Mulyadi, Mulyadi was trying to bury Nelu.  At one point and time he thought he was going home and Nelu was staying—since the notes were in Nelu’s bag.  On another occasion he told the Police he knew nothing about the notes, which left Nelu literally holding the bag.

I again told him he was responsible for this entire mess and if anything I would like to take his head off.  Jo would not translate this yet apparently Mulyadi understood and banged the table again.

Banging tables does not bother me but setting up your own family does.

Mulyadi not only hurt Nelu and his family but he hurt millions of people all over the planet, since we had been about ready to begin the Humanitarian Programs when Nelu was arrested.

I was already standing and I banged the table back and told him you will not get any help from me you &#$!?##!!!.  Nelu asked me to please remember this is his family, and his father-in-law might punch him in the face.  I calmed down for Nelu’s sake.  I was glad he did not bring his baby to see this.  It was a shouting match and could have been much more but we walked away.Jo being the smart man he is just kept looking straight ahead at the wall in front of him not saying a word and I told him later you are lucky this did not break out and he asked, ‘”Why?”  I said, “Because the guy in the middle is always the one that gets whacked!”  Hahahahha…:)

Jo said, “Really?!!”  Inchul, on the other hand, just kept watching everything stoically.  Nothing bothers that man. On the other hand, Mulyadi’s emotions were apparently getting the better of him.

But this time I kept my eyes on him, knowing after leaving the table he was rounding up his boys for a further confrontation with either us or Nelu.  He did not want word to get out that he was responsible for everything that happened to Nelu but rather that Nelu did this to him. We had already planned on leaving, though, and I could only pray that nothing happened to Nelu—but it did!

Later that night in a confrontation Nelu shouted at Mulyadi that he had put him in jail for nine months by secretly working with Keith Scott.  Now the only person who had a handle on this matter was me and for Nelu to finally come out and say it must have been a reach for him, but Mulyadi loudly responded, “Yes, I was working with Keith Scott, and you blew our deal!”

Now if stupid is as stupid does then you have to shake your head at this one.  Mulyadi had only fake notes.  This is why he went to jail (getting innocent Nelu jailed too) yet here he is saying, “You blew our deal.’”

Well, Mr. Mulyadi, how did you ever expect to complete a deal with fake notes?  On the other hand Nelu had real notes (notes we planned on bringing down to use in the Programs), and the banks were awaiting his arrival.  Of course, he never made it.  So last week, for the first time Nelu heard for himself that Mulyadi not only worked with Scott but was involved in his incarceration.  It goes without saying that Scott got the hell out of Dodge after the arrest, and never lifted a finger to help Mulyadi.

Now we sit and wait the Higher Court’s Decision.  Nelu’s case is in the pipeline and he expects to receive an answer shortly.  The matter of Nelu’s innocence is not at stake as much as the court’s integrity.  The Prosecutor, Ms. Tanti, lost her integrity long ago and might be in line to face charges herself.  This still yet remains to be determined, depending on how Nelu wants to handle things.  To date the Indonesian court (which is often chastised in the world media) has been more than helpful.  They have extended their hands and their wisdom and they have not liked the state of things anymore than we have.  They are not sure who did what but they know something illegal was done and that it was not Nelu who did it.

Wise and humble people usually put together things in the right manner.  Now we sit and tempers have cooled—although I still get hot thinking about things that should have been, could have been.  It hurts to know that Scott not only disrupted our attempts at getting the Humanitarian Projects out there but destroyed a plan that would have been actively generating capital for various projects throughout the world at this very moment.  He is hiding in Malaysia and Malaysia was in line to get financing for some projects, so I leave him now to Malaysia.  He is in their hands.  He cost them so much and then goes and uses them to hide.  Best he leave now because I will make sure they see this.

As for Mulyadi I would expect him to serve out his sentence, since no one could actually help him, and finally for Nelu I pray he at last gets to rejoin his loving family.  I feel so much for them all and am fighting my very best, along with Jean, Michael, Inchul, Jo, Ben, David, Drake, Frankie, Tichomir, Rich, Stanley, and most importantly all of you. You proved yourselves with the phone calls and I must state right now I am so proud to be involved with you.  Thank you so much from the bottom of all our hearts.

I hope this sets the bridge you need between the last post and hopefully Nelu’s release.  Now you can see nothing has been smooth.  It could have gotten out of hand but I had Jo with me to translate, who could deal with them all so easily.  Go get ‘em Jo!  Thanks for all, and now I must say goodbye until Nelu is released.  He should be out soon and remember it took many of us to do things either big or small to hopefully make this release possible, so we are all in it together.  Again, thank you for all you do.

The Revolution Intensifies

Update 31 may 2013: MAJOR OFFENSIVES

The revolution is intensifying, and the revolutionaries are just fine.

Never in the most recent times has the Vatican experienced a massive attack right at its doorsteps. I would consider these actions below as significant because this war is, first and foremost, a war for the Mind. Once the Global Mindset is fully switched off against the Establishment, it becomes history.

The level of awareness just keeps getting higher. Absolutely fascinating.

First, there was this lady featured in one of Bullshit’s episodes of Penn and Teller tackling the Church, Inc., about 3 years ago.

Then comes the Historic Press Conference in Italy by Rev. Kevin D. Annett of the International Tribunal for Crimes of Church and State [ITCCS] last May 23, 2013.

 kevin annett press conference italy

SAVONA, ITALY – The following is a summary of what Kevin Annett and Francesco Zanardi presented before the Italian media in Savona, Italy today May 23, 2013.

“Hello. My name is Kevin Annett, and I am the acting Field Secretary of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, the ITCCS, which represents over fifty organizations of survivors of church torture in nine countries, including Italy.

It is an honor to be present here today with Francesco Zanardi and the organization Rete L’abuse, at their invitation, and to join with them in an historical campaign to stop forever the religious torture of children.

For years now, Francesco has been conducting a heroic fight here in Italy for the same things that our Tribunal is campaigning for, by exposing child torture within the Roman Catholic church and bringing those responsible to justice. I look forward to working with Francesco and many others in Italy in the months ahead.

I have been authorized by the ITCCS Central Office to issue the following public statement:

1. As a Citizens’ Tribunal of Conscience with standing under international law, we call upon Italian President Giorgio Napolitano to seek the immediate extradition from the Vatican and the arrest of former Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, on the grounds that Ratzinger is a fugitive from justice and a wanted criminal duly convicted of crimes against humanity on February 25, 2013 by an international common law court of justice.

2. We further call upon President Napolitano and his government to abide by the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court by giving no further aid, tax exemptions or financial subsidies to an organization guilty of crimes against humanity and children, namely, the Vatican Incorporated, and to cancel and annul the so-called Lateran Treaty between the government of Italy and the Vatican.

3. If President Napolitano fails to abide by international law and refuses to take these measures, our Tribunal, its international affiliates and Italian citizens will commence an international boycott of Italian goods, trade and tourism; and within Italy, we will commence peaceful church occupations, citizens arrests and other direct actions against the Vatican and its officials. This campaign will commence on September 20, 2013, the 143rd anniversary of Garibaldi`s liberation of Rome and expulsion of the papacy.

4. The purpose of this campaign will be to enforce the lawful verdict of the International Common Law Court of Justice of February 25, 2013, which convicted thirty officials of church and state of genocide and a criminal conspiracy, including former Pope Benedict and top Catholic Cardinals. (see www.itccs.org). This verdict sentenced these officials to immediate arrest and imprisonment for a term of twenty five years, and the confiscation of church property and wealth.

5. The Vatican and the Roman Catholic church as a whole represents a clear and present danger to the children of the world because of its standing policy known as Crimen Solictationas, which actively protects child rapists in the church and subverts justice and child protection laws in other nations. The present Pope Francis is actively complicit in this war crime by his position as head of the Church of Rome and his personal involvement in such crimes in Argentina. By this law, the Vatican consitutes a global criminal conspiracy and permanent war waged against the children, the sovereignty and the laws of all nations, and under the Law of Nations (jus gentium) must be resisted and opposed, and its power curtailed, for the wellbeing of people everywhere.

The ITCCS and its affiliates and allies in other governments are committed to doing so. We therefore call upon all citizens of Italy to withdraw their funding and allegiance from the Roman Catholic church, to demand that President Napolitano seeks the extradiction of Joseph Ratzinger and the annulling of the Lateran Treaty, and to join our September 20 campaign to end forever the criminal actions of the Church of Rome.

We also make a formal request to the police forces of Italy to assist Italian citizens in protecting their children and their communities from child-raping catholic clergy by arresting such known and suspected predators, and by refusing to aid or assist the Roman Catholic church and its officials evade justice and prosecution for their crimes.

The government of Italy and President Napolitano have until September 20, 2013 to respond to this statement and abide by its requests, and to a registered communication being sent to the Presidential Office and the Parliament of Italy.

Issued May 23, 2013

From the Central Office, ITCCS, Brussels

Kevin Annett also stressed the following excerpt from Crimen Sollicitationis (fully reprinted at www.hiddennolonger.com, appendix 9)

CONFIDENTIAL

From the Supreme and Holy Congregation of the Holy Office – Instruction on the Manner of Proceeding in the Cases of Solicitation (The Vatican Press, 1962) ….

11. Because, however, what is treated in these cases has to have a greater degree of care and observance so that these matters be pursued in a most secretive way, and, after they have been defined and given over to execution, they are to be restrained by a perpetual silence (Instruction of the Holy Office, February 20, 1867, n. 14), each and everyone pertaining to the tribunal in any way or admitted to knowledge of the matters because of their office, is to observe the strictest (space) secret, which is commonly regarded as a secret of the Holy Office, in all matters and with all persons, under the penalty of excommunication, latae sententiae, ipso facto, and without any declaration (of such a penalty) having been incurred and reserved to the sole person of the Supreme Pontiff, even to the exclusion of the Sacred Penitentiary, are bound to observe (this secrecy) inviolably. ….

 

Savona, Italy

At an historic press conference yesterday, two groups fighting to end church terror against children formally joined forces and announced the launching of a public campaign commencing in Rome on September 20.

Francesco Zanardi of Rete L’Abuso and Kevin Annett of The International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State (ITCCS) disclosed their joint campaign to Italian reporters and activists at a morning press conference in the northern Italian city of Savona.

“We want to not only prosecute the priests who rape children but change the laws that let them get away with it” explained Francesco Zanardi, to thunderous applause.

Zanardi is himself a survivor of serial rape during the 1980’s by a Catholic priest named Nello Giraudo, who was protected and aided by Cardinal Domenico Calcagno.

Calcagno is now a prominent official in the Vatican Bank and helped elect the present Pope Francis.

“The Lateran Treaty obligates Italy to help the Vatican commit crime. That Treaty has to go” said Zanardi.

On behalf of the ITCCS, Kevin Annett also spoke at the press conference, and pledged the Tribunal’s “total support” to Zanardi and Rete L’Abuso.

Annett presented an authorized letter to Zanardi from the Central Office of the ITCCS that formally affiliated the Tribunal with the Italian group and guaranteed “direct action” throughout Italy in September.

“The Italian government helps a convicted criminal like (former Pope) Joseph Ratzinger evade arrest inside the Vatican, while persecuting a brave and honest man like Francesco Zanardi” said Annett.

“We’ve written to Italian President Giorgio Napolitano and demanded that he abide by international law and extradite Ratzinger from the Vatican to face justice for helping traffic children to priestly rapists”.

In a bilingual statement released to the media (see link below), the ITCCS stated that unless the Italian government begins steps to extradite Ratzinger and revoke the Lateran Treaty with the Vatican, civil disobedience actions will begin in Italian catholic churches and four cities on September 20, and will be accompanied by an international boycott campaign against Italian goods, trade and tourism.

Citizen groups in Savona, Genoa, Reggio Emilia and Rome have agreed to participate in these actions.

March Against Monsanto

Kevin Annett will return to Italy in mid-September to help inaugurate the campaign with Francesco Zanardi and local activists at special events in Rome and Savona on September 20.

 Demonstrators hold up posters during a protest against U.S.-based Monsanto Co. and genetically modified organisms (GMO), in New York US-AGRICULTURE-GMO-MONSANTO-PROTEST

Hundreds of thousands across the US joined the worldwide rally against biotech giant Monsanto and genetically engineered crops. It comes shortly after the Senate turned down a bill that would allow states to require the labeling of GM foods.

Organizers of the major rally that swept through dozens of nations around the globe on Saturday, urge a repeal of the so-called Monsanto Protection Act, and call for a boycott of Monsanto products.

Monsanto hires infamous mercenary firm Blackwater to track activists around the world

Sunday, May 26, 2013 by: Carolanne Wright
(NaturalNews) Remember the private mercenary army Blackwater that caused such a stir in Iraq during an unprovoked attack in 2007? Apparently, Monsanto and the controversial security firm are in bed together, described by blogger Randy Ananda as “a death-tech firm weds a hit squad.” At this point, you might be wondering what in the world the GM seed giant needs with the services of a ‘shadow army’? It appears as though the corporation found it necessary to contract with Blackwater in order to collect intelligence on anti-Monsanto activists as well infiltrate their ranks.

Protest Monsanto, stalked by Blackwater

Notorious for the Iraqi Nisour Square Massacre, Blackwater “created a web of more than 30 shell companies or subsidiaries in part to obtain millions of dollars in American government contracts after the security company came under intense criticism for reckless conduct in Iraq,” reports the New York Times. One of these subsidiaries became Total Intelligence, the company contracted by Monsanto between 2008-2010 to collect intelligence on activists rallying against GMO crops and other Monsanto activities. Journalist Jeremy Scahill states in The Nation:

“… entities closely linked to the private security firm Blackwater have provided intelligence, training and security services to US and foreign governments as well as several multinational corporations, including Monsanto, Chevron, the Walt Disney Company, Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines and banking giants Deutsche Bank and Barclays, according to documents obtained by The Nation. Blackwater’s work for corporations and government agencies was contracted using two companies owned by Blackwater’s owner and founder, Erik Prince: Total Intelligence Solutions and the Terrorism Research Center (TRC). Prince is listed as the chairman of both companies in internal company documents, which show how the web of companies functions as a highly coordinated operation.”

A spokesperson representing Monsanto admits the company hired Total Intelligence for information “… about the activities of groups or individuals that could pose a risk to company personnel or operations around the world which were developed by monitoring local media reports and other publicly available information. The subject matter ranged from information regarding terrorist incidents in Asia or kidnappings in Central America to scanning the content of activist blogs and websites.”

However, what the spokesperson fails to address is that according to documents secured by Scahill, Monsanto was willing to pay a sizable sum (up to $500,000) for Blackwater agents to infiltrate anti-Monsanto organizations.

As the plot continues to thicken regarding Monsanto’s tactics of domination, Ananda aptly notes:

“… Monsanto, by hiring a mercenary army and former CIA field agents, is deadly serious about protecting its deadly products. Yet, this contract further discredits the company. The public can now paint an even bleaker picture of the firm that brought us Agent Orange, PCBs, rBST, DDT, aspartame and, now, hit men.”

Grand Jury How? to and Why? & In a stunning 6 to 3 decision Justice Antonin Scalia, writing for the majority, confirmed that the American grand jury is neither part of the judicial, executive nor legislative branches of government, but instead belongs to the people. It is in effect a fourth branch of government “governed” and administered to directly by and on behalf of the American people, and its authority emanates from the Bill of Rights.
This is the solution to taking back our government county by county . . . state by state!

Global Settlements

Keenan on the other hand is in his final legalwork for the release of Martha Wibawa [Nelu], an Indonesian patriot critical to the release of the Collateral Accounts that would be used to finance global eradication of poverty and environmental destructions.

Our organization have determined May 31st as the Peak of the Revolution. Whether we can beat that schedule or not, doesn’t really matter. What is important is that we are making headways and we keep on moving forward.

The Dark Side will never win this war because you, the awakened, will never allow that.

One of the significant sources of funds for the Cabal is the healthcare industry which registered a whopping $2.7 trillion in 2011, and is projected to soar to $3.6 trillion in 2016, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.

You can join the fight against the Dark Cabal and accelerate its demise just by boycotting Big Pharma. You can effectively do this by downloading “Towards Healthcare Emancipation“, a fully illustrated do-it-yourself instructional eBook that will help you in implementing all eClinik methods that would negate the use of expensive medicine, avoid radioactive diagnostics and treatments in completely defeating cancer, AIDS and all other parasitic diseases. These methods, when faithfully followed, work 100% all the time. Find out more about this here.

We are very grateful to the following for the love and support they’ve given us for the month of May 2013:

Merna M, $20
James F, $10
Millard C, $15
Meera M, $49.95
Pamela F, $100
Wiley S, $100
John A, $10
Charles B, $10
