Healthcare Insecurities Keep Workers Locked in Jobs (tmn)

With improved services came spikes in medical bills, which most people couldn't afford to pay. That often left hospitals in massive debt. That was certainly the case for Baylor Hospital in Dallas, Texas, when an administrator came up with a solution to save the hospital. In 1929, he offered a group of city school teachers a deal — pay 50 cents a month into a hospital plan, and everyone who signs up gets guaranteed care at radically reduced rates. The idea — which merged health insurance with employment — became a regional and then national sensation, and led to the creation of Blue Cross Blue Shield.

Evidence points to Bitcoin being an NSA-engineered psyop to roll out one-world digital currency (goldrunner1)

The NSA, in other words, detailed key elements of Bitcoin long before Bitcoin ever came into existence. Much of the Bitcoin protocol is detailed in this document, including signature authentication techniques, eliminating cryptocoin counterfeits through transaction authentication and several features that support anonymity and untraceability of transactions. The document even outlines the heightened risk of money laundering that’s easily accomplished with cryptocurrencies. It also describes “secure hashing” to be “both one-way and collision-free.”

U.S. Government Criminal Enterprise – Catherine Austin Fitts (Nate)

So, what are the rich doing with their money? Fitts says, “Gold is what it has always been and that is a real store of value. I am a gold girl. If you look at the smart money and central banks around the world, the smart money is buying gold, and the smart money is buying land. If you read the land report, that’s the top holders of land in the United States. Their holdings have doubled since 2008. I see tremendous amounts of money moving into hard assets.”

‘HQ’ in 120 Years (blackeagle)

Quiz Daddy first rose to prominence on the shoulders of an extremist group of initial HQ players known as the Dilly Dillies, who quietly toppled American democracy—first through campaigns in small local elections that promised extra HQ lives to voters, and eventually by claiming seats in the House and the Senate. By the time Tom Brady’s robot was starting his 44th season as quarterback of the New England Patriots, the Dilly Dillies had effectively taken over the government, and thus, society as it was once known.

Intermittent fasting found to increase cognitive functions in mice (blackeagle)

Mattson explained that when the body goes without nutrition for 10 to 14 hours, it stops living off energy stored in the liver and turns to fat stores as a replacement. That, of course, leads to weight loss, which, he notes, is the science behind the 5:2 diet, in which people fast for two days each week. He further explains that for the body to use fat stores, it must first convert them to ketones. Ketones, he adds, act directly on nerve cells, causing them to produce BDNF, and that would explain why the mice showed improved cognitive functioning.

Amazon + Whole Foods? It’s Not Working (Tiffany D.)

In other words, forget the exclusive (and expensive) focus on organic. Sell the same food and beverage goods you can buy elsewhere (and which Amazon can buy cheaply in huge, bulk quantities).

The Barclays analysts made another interesting insight. Innovation — new foods, new packaging, unique products you can’t find elsewhere — is a big reason behind the rapid growth of chains like Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods.

API Reports Huge Crude Draw (Uncletommy)

Distillate inventories, too, saw another build this week, up 1.538 million barrels, against a forecast of a 902,000-barrel build. Distillate inventory has risen three weeks in a row leading up to this week, according to information by the Energy Information Administration, but are still almost 30 million barrels shy of the same week last year.

Inventories at the Cushing, Oklahoma, site decreased by 2.704 million barrels this week.

Exxon To Disclose The Real Risk Of Climate Change (Michael K.)

Also, Exxon’s total oil and gas production has actually declined in four of the last five years—Bloomberg calculates that Exxon averaged 4 million barrels of oil equivalent per day (boe/d) in the first nine months of 2017, down from 4.51 mb/d in 2011. Part of that is because of Exxon’s size—a depletion rate that leads to the erosion of several percentage points from a rather large number is still a large number.

Canadian scientists were followed, threatened and censored. They warn that Trump could do the same. (blackeagle)

“In Harper’s era, it was open warfare with the media,” Max Bothwell, an environmental scientist for the Canadian government, told Smithsonian Magazine. “I suspect something similar is about to happen in the U.S.”

Net Neutrality--Will the oligarcy control the discourse?

There are many strategies used by the oligarchy to control the masses.  Today we saw the repeal of the net neutrality safeguards.  I am not an expert in this legislation or its effects, and frankly, can barely stand to read about it.  But I do know that it is a part of the deep state efforts to control discourse.

So you believe that kerosene melts steel?  Well we can help ensure that your web search finds only "experts" who tell you "sure, kerosene melts steel."  We are protecting you from misinformation.

When a human being does the things that the deep state does, we say that person has a narcissistic personality disorder (NPD).

Here is a good review of the tactics of the narcissist to control its victims:  6 Tactics Narcissists Will Use to Silence You

Now access to various webpages will be limited by economic forces. You have to pay extra to get that alt-media site.  It is no longer "censoring content," just a "business decision."

More fear propaganda

'We will burn you with the flames of war': ISIS threatens to attack US with 'showers of bullets and explosive vehicles' in posters showing NYPD commissioner kneeling before jihadist (DailyMail)

Quote:

"The posters are the latest in a series of online threats against the US to emerge in recent weeks and were released by a pro-ISIS media outlet, according to the respected SITE Intelligence group."

The concern is that this is prep work for a false flag

The Rita Katz website that Time2Help mentioned above, SITE Intelligence Group, may be playing a role to set expectations and beliefs in the American public's mind about who the enemies are and what to expect. 

We are envisioning this as a coordinated Mossad operation:  "By deception we wage war." 

The concern is that this SITE Intelligence Group poster publication is prep work for a false flag attack that is to be blamed on "the evil ones" in Iran, who undoubtedly will be discovered to be behind such an attack.  Public thinking is being preconditioned to accept Iranian guilt so that only a light sprinkling of evidence from the scene (a passport?) will convince everyone that Iranian's did it.  Then our hearts will cry out for justice!

Alan Sabrosky explains how this "tactic of mistake"  is used.

... This [tactic] essentially entailed using a target’s prejudices and preconceptions to mislead them as to the origin and intent of the attack, entrapping them...

Prep work is done to demonize the intended opponents for months before the kinetic part of the war commences.

Some hypothesize that war in Iran is urgently needed by Netanyahu.   Specifically, he needs the US (and KSA) to attack Iran.

One scenario from The Saker 

The following is only my speculation and nothing more. I have no way of knowing what the Axis of Kindness (US-Israel-KSA) has come up with,

...have the Saudis attack Lebanon and/or Iran, observe how they lose, then switch on the propaganda machine at full power and explain to the average TV-watching goy that Iran is a threat to the region and the aggressor here, that the Saudis are only defending themselves from Iranian aggression. And if that is not enough, they scream “oy gevalt!” in the US Congress and have the prostitutes on the Hill explain to the American people that the US must “lead the Free World” to “defend” the “only democracy in the Middle-East” against Iranian “aggression” and that the US have a “responsibility” to prevent the Iranians of “seizing the Saudi oil fields” etc. etc. etc.

 

It’s a win-win situation for the Israelis as long as there are not caught red-handed manipulating it all. But we can count on our beloved Ziomedia to make sure that no such “anti-Semitic” accusations are ever made, even if Israeli fingerprints are all over the place.

James Petras opines: Israeli PM Netanyahu leads US President Trump to War With Iran

Trump’s refusal to certify Iran’s compliance with nuclear accord reflects the overwhelming power of Israel within the US Presidency. Trump’s rebuke of his generals and Secretary of State Tillerson, the UN Security Council and the 5 major cosigners of the 2015 accord with Iran, exposes the advanced degradation of the US Presidency and the US role in global politics.

All previous US Presidents have been influenced by the billionaire and millionaire diehard Israel-Firsters, who funded their electoral campaigns. But occasionally, some ‘Commanders in Chief’ have decided to pursue policies favoring US national interest over Israel’s bellicose ambitions. Avoiding a catastrophic war in the Middle East is such a case: Obama chose to negotiate and sign a nuclear accord with Iran. Tel Aviv’s useful fool, Donald Trump, intends to break the agreement and drag this nation further into the hell of regional war.

And others, like Philip Giraldi, in Bad Moon Rising, chronicles the re-emergence of the second-tier neocons within the Trump bureaucracy, and its turn towards greater war.

But we do have some power here.  We don't have to believe them.  A skeptical public is not so willing to participate in this macabre Game of Thrones.  We can say NO!

BLUE GREEN getting tied up in knots

This cartoon was on a facebook feed.  I kept thinking about it.

BLUE Meme gets his sense of what is true from scripture--most of which were written several thousand years ago.

GREEN breaks the old religious rules and is tolerant and inclusive of everyone (except those who are intolerant and not inclusive which will not be tolerated or included). 

GREEN and BLUE can't stand each other.

GREEN gets tied up in knots when the need to reject intolerance conflicts with the need to accept out groups.  Ha ha.

The differences between memes are far greater than the differences between religions.

Want to see a different form of govt openess?

http://russiafeed.com/live-vladimir-putins-annual-qa-press-conference/ Worth watching to see that there is another option to corp/mic government. Go to the 50.00 min mark for USA specific remarks. I see no reason at all why we cannot be maybe not allies, but at least mature and reasoned leaders of a multi-polar world. One can only hope.

UN Ambassador Haley Calls For Coalition to Fight Iran

US Calls for Global Coalition to Counter Iran

The Axis of Kindness (USA-Israel_KSA) gears up to fight the Axis-of-Evil.

The US ambassador to the UN has called for an international coalition to counter Iran's influence in the Middle East, while accusing the country of "fanning the flames of conflict" in the region.

Nikki Haley, standing in front of what she said were the remnants of Iranian-made weapons, said the US has found evidence that Iranian ballistic missiles were transferred to, and used by, the Houthi rebel group in Yemen, a violation of Tehran's international obligations.

"In this warehouse is concrete evidence of illegal Iranian weapons proliferation gathered from direct military attacks on our partners in the region," Haley said during a news conference in a military hangar near Washington, DC on Thursday.

The US is going to "build a coalition to really push back against Iran and what they're doing", Haley said, without going into specifics.

She said the recovered pieces of the weapon came from a missile "fired by Houthi militants from Yemen into Saudi Arabia", a staunch US ally in the region.

Haley said markings on the missile proved it was made in Iran. "These are Iranian made, these are Iranian sent, and these were Iranian given," she said.

 

She doesn't mention any Iranian passports yet.

Saudi Arabia welcomed Haley's comments on Thursday, saying it condemned "the Iranian regime for its flagrant violations of the international resolutions and norms."

The UAE, which is part of the Saudi-led coalition, said the evidence provided by the US "leaves no doubt about Iran's flagrant disregard for its #UN obligations, and its role in the proliferation and trafficking of weapons in the region".

"The #UAE calls on the global community to more forcefully address the threat posed by #Iran,"

All tied up in knots

It's not just GREEN/BLUE.

  • GREEN and BLUE can't stand each other.
  • GREEN and ORANGE can't stand each other.
  • GREEN can't stand YELLOW.
  • Smart RED/BLUE gets all of this and uses it to advantage.

Interesting times. Thanks SP.
