Emotional Baggage: Don't React, Just Respond
Our reactivity is an automated defence to protect us from feeling the pain of our negative core beliefs. Normally, we do not recognise that an old and painful memory has been stirred up; we simply feel overwhelmed and automatically react as a defence. We can either shut down what we are feeling by underreacting, overreact with emotions out of proportion to the situation, or we can act out.

My special friends,
The 56 min. YT clip below appears to be one of those amatuer homemade info sessions of a grassroots whistleblower patriot. It starts without an introduction, but the material indicates the narrator has an extensive technical backround in nuclear physics and conspiracies. To sum it up, he is alledgeing HAARP's earthquake WMD program is behind the ongoing Fukushima disaster, and the catastrophe is just in the beginning stages. He predicts Japan will experience a major volcanic eruption with subsequent massive geological disruption to the landmass.
You may want to file this for later reference, in case it comes true.

Why There is Unity in Multiplicity
Time, according to western thinkers, is what passes between two events. This is a linear view of time, the reductionist approach, as some call it. Indic tradition, however, presents a cyclic concept of time. Time is not restricted to something that occurs between two events, as proposed in the reductionist view.
A Taste of What's To Come: Food Sovereignty Declared in U.S. City
Sedgwick, Maine has done what no other town in the United States has done. The town unanimously passed an ordinance giving its citizens the right "to produce, process, sell, purchase, and consume local foods of their choosing." This includes raw milk, locally slaughtered meats, and just about anything else you can imagine. It's also a decided bucking of state and federal laws.
The Tyranny of Government "Protection"
When the Egyptians informed their president recently that they were fed up with 32 years of government tyranny which had been justified as protection from harm, we all watched in amazement.

Powerful Alternatives to Tamoxifen That Will Put A Damper On Drug Profits
The currently recognized cancer treatment -chemotherapy/radiation-- often comes into question by those who are personally affected or by those who have loved ones affected by the disease. The mere association of the cancer label conjures up images of horror, fear and desperation in pursuit of the avenue of treatment - will those affected go against the acceptable drug approach with known risks and prolonged side effects or turn from the traditional treatment to entertain a natural approach?

From: Eileen...I don't believe in petitions to the government...but I do in a local setting and in this case. So, please follow the Cornucopia instructions. Cornucopia is the huge distributor of organic food in this country.
From what I can tell, Cornucopia has done the proper homework on this issue. The NOSB Handling Committee's draft recommendation would undermine the review process by allowing an entire class of synthetic substances to be used in organic processed foods without individual reviews of the substances. People who are concerned with both the substance of the recommendation, as well as the integrity of the review process, should submit comments to the NOSB.
Protect Babies' and Children's Health
March 21, 2011
In conventional foods, the government allows the use of toxic pesticides, genetically engineered crops, and novel synthetic additives that have not been tested for safety. As organic consumers, we say: “No thanks, we’d rather not be part of this huge uncontrolled experiment!”
Organic foods offer an alternative, but some pro-corporate members of the National Organic Standards Board (NOSB), the panel set up by Congress to advise the Secretary of Agriculture on organic standards, would like to open the door to all synthetic additives to be added freely to organic foods—as long as they have, theoretically, nutritional value.
Any “nutrient” synthetic additive that comes on the market would become fair game for organics, even those that have never before been part of the human food system, chemically extracted with toxic solvents, grown in genetically engineered feedstock, and otherwise produced in ways that would shock any organic consumer.
Synthetic “nutrient” additives often have no scientifically proven benefits, and act primarily as corporate agribusiness marketing gimmicks.
We must reject this outrageous proposal! The USDA is encouraging citizens to send them your comments. The members of the NOSB and the National Organic Program need to hear the following message from organic consumers, farmers and businesses:
• The NOSB Handling Committee’s proposal to allow any and all “nutrient” additives —without the required vetting as required by Congress—in organics is outrageous.
• Essential nutrients that are required by the Food and Drug Administration should remain allowed in organics—but the organic standards should not be broadened to allow any synthetic, novel, untested “nutrient” additive created by agribusiness and biotechnology corporations.
• Please reinforce that all synthetic additives should continue to be individually reviewed and approved for use in organics.
• Reports from parents and health care professionals suggest that some infants react with diarrhea, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal symptoms to two unreviewed synthetic additives already in organic infant formula. This should not be tolerated in organics!
The synthetic “nutrient additives” DHA and ARA, added to infant formula despite extremely weak scientific evidence of their benefits, and reportedly linked to serious gastrointestinal side efffects in some infants, provide a striking example of the importance of keeping the organic standards strong.
The committee proposal is couched in terms of consumer “maximum freedom of choice” and “harmonizing government agency rules.” Consumers who wish to consume synthetic nutrient additives that were not carefully regulated by the National Organic Program are always free to buy conventional foods. If this proposal is accepted by the full Board at the April meeting, there will be one clear winner: corporations whose synthetic, non-organic, novel and untested additives will be allowed freely in organic foods.

The Antioxidant Power of Smoothies
Earlier research has suggested that the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory polyphenols found in apples help prevent colon cancer, but to be useful they must not be absorbed by the small intestine. Instead, they need to get to the colon where they can be effective. This study found that smoothies delivered significantly more polyphenols and quinic acid to the colon than apple juice or cider.

NO MORE McMEAT IN CANADA! Don't even buy their coffee... Be a PROUD PROTECTIONIST!
If you eat at McDonald’s, you need to read the following:
CANADIAN Beef (Alberta Beef is the Best)
THIS IS A GOOD DECENT MAN WHO TOOK THE TIME TO WRITE THIS
AND HE SIGNED THE STATEMENT INCLUDING HIS CONTACT INFO:
I'm sure those of you who aren't in the cattle business don't
understand the issues here. But to those of us whose living depends on
the cattle market, selling cattle, raising the best beef
possible...This is frustrating.
This will keep us from ever stopping there again, even for a drink.
The original message is from the Alberta Cattle Feeders Association.
Canadian cattle producers are very passionate about this.
McDonald's claim there is not enough beef in Canada to support their
restaurants. Well, we (ACFA) know that is not so. Our opinion is they
are looking to save money at our expense. The sad thing of it is that
the people of Canada are the ones who made McDonald's successful in the
first place, but we are not good enough to provide the beef.
We personally are no longer eating at McDonald's, which I am sure does
not make an impact, but if we pass this around maybe there will be an
informed impact felt.
All Canadians that sell cattle at a livestock auction barn have to sign
a paper stating that we do NOT EVER feed our cattle any part of another
animal... South Americans are not required to do this as of yet.
McDonald's has announced that they are going to start importing much of
their beef from South America . The problem is that South Americans
aren't under the same regulations as Canadian beef producers, and the
regulations they have are loosely controlled.
They can spray numerous pesticides on their pastures that have been
banned here at home because of residues found in the beef. They can
also use various hormones and growth regulators that we can't. The
Canadian public needs to be aware of this problem and that they may be
putting themselves at risk from now on by eating at McDonald's.
Canadian ranchers raise the highest quality beef in the world and this
is what Canadians deserve to eat. Not beef from countries where quality
is loosely controlled. Therefore, I am proposing a boycott of
McDonald's until they see the light.
For me, everything is not always about the bottom line when it comes to
jeopardizing my family's health, that is where I draw the line.
I am sending this note to about 30 people.
If each of you send it to at least 10 more
(30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x
10 = 3,000) ... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth
generation of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION
I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you?
Acting together we can make a difference. If this makes sense to you,
please pass this message on.

Forensic Research Shows That Overweight People Really Do Have Bigger Bones
One of the blind spots in forensic science, particularly in identifying unknown remains, is the inability of experts to determine how much an individual weighed based on his or her skeleton. New research from North Carolina State University moves us closer to solving this problem by giving forensic experts valuable insight into what the shape of the femur can tell us about the weight of an individual.

What with all these earthquakes popping up everywhere even in places not supposed to occur...read this!!!!
Subject: Where to Go During an Earthquake
This is the text version of my earlier email styled 《Save your life with "The Triangle of Life"》(see below)
further elucidating on the life-saving concept of "The Triangle of Life"....
Folks, please SHARE, SHARE, SHARE this with your loved ones:
Where to Go During an Earthquake
Remember that stuff about hiding under a table or standing in a doorway? Well, forget it! This is a real eye opener. It could save your life someday.
EXTRACT FROM DOUG COPP'S ARTICLE ON 'THE TRIANGLE OF LIFE'
My name is Doug Copp. I am the Rescue Chief and Disaster Manager of the American Rescue Team International (ARTI ), the world's most experienced rescue team. The information in this article will save lives in an earthquake.
I have crawled inside 875 collapsed buildings, worked with rescue teams from 60 countries, founded rescue teams in several countries, and I am a member of many rescue teams from many countries. I was the United Nations expert in Disaster Mitigation for two years, and have worked at every major disaster in the world since 1985, except for simultaneous disasters.
The first building I ever crawled inside of was a school in Mexico City during the 1985 earthquake. Every child was under its desk. Every child was crushed to the thickness of their bones. They could have survived by lying down next to their desks in the aisles. It was obscene -- unnecessary.
Simply stated, when buildings collapse, the weight of the ceilings falling upon the objects or furniture inside crushes these objects, leaving a space or void next to them - NOT under them. This space is what I call the 'triangle of life'. The larger the object, the stronger, the less it will compact. The less the object compacts, the larger the void, the greater the probability that the person who is using this void for safety will not be injured. The next time you watch collapsed buildings, on television, count the 'triangles' you see formed. They are everywhere. It is the most common shape, you will see, in a collapsed building.
TIPS FOR EARTHQUAKE SAFETY
1) Most everyone who simply 'ducks and covers' when building collapse are crushed to death. People who get under objects, like desks or cars, are crushed.
2) Cats, dogs and babies often naturally curl up in the fetal position. You should too in an earthquake. It is a natural safety/survival instinct. You can survive in a smaller void. Get next to an object, next to a sofa, next to a bed, next to a large bulky object that will compress slightly but leave a void next to it.
3) Wooden buildings are the safest type of construction to be in during an earthquake. Wood is flexible and moves with the force of the earthquake. If the wooden building does collapse, large survival voids are created. Also, the wooden building has less concentrated, crushing weight. Brick buildings will break into individual bricks. Bricks will cause many injuries but less squashed bodies than concrete slabs.
4) If you are in bed during the night and an earthquake occurs, simply roll off the bed. A safe void will exist around the bed. Hotels can achieve a much greater survival rate in earthquakes, simply by posting a sign on the back of the door of every room telling occupants to lie down on the floor, next to the bottom of the bed during an earthquake.
5) If an earthquake happens and you cannot easily escape by getting out the door or window, then lie down and curl up in the fetal position next to a sofa, or large chair.
6) Most everyone who gets under a doorway when buildings collapse is killed. How? If you stand under a doorway and the doorjamb falls forward or backward you will be crushed by the ceiling above. If the door jamb falls sideways you will be cut in half by the doorway. In either case, you will be killed!
7) Never go to the stairs. The stairs have a different 'moment of frequency' (they swing separately from the main part of the building). The stairs and remainder of the building continuously bump into each other until structural failure of the stairs takes place. The people who get on stairs before they fail are chopped up by the stair treads - horribly mutilated. Even if the building doesn't collapse, stay away from the stairs. The stairs are a likely part of the building to be damaged. Even if the stairs are not collapsed by the earthquake, they may collapse later when overloaded by fleeing people. They should always be checked for safety, even when the rest of the building is not damaged.
8) Get near the outer walls of buildings or outside of them if possible - It is much better to be near the outside of the building rather than the interior. The farther inside you are from the outside perimeter of the building the greater the probability that your escape route will be blocked.
9) People inside of their vehicles are crushed when the road above falls in an earthquake and crushes their vehicles; which is exactly what happened with the slabs between the decks of the Nimitz Freeway. The victims of the San Francisco earthquake all stayed inside of their vehicles. They were all killed. They could have easily survived by getting out and sitting or lying next to their vehicles. Everyone killed would have survived if they had been able to get out of their cars and sit or lie next to them. All the crushed cars had voids 3 feet high next to them, except for the cars that had columns fall directly across them.
10) I discovered, while crawling inside of collapsed newspaper offices and other offices with a lot of paper, that paper does not compact. Large voids are found surrounding stacks of paper.
Spread the word and save someone's life...
The entire world is experiencing natural calamities so be prepared!
'We are but angels with one wing, it takes two to fly'
In 1996 we made a film, which proved my survival methodology to be correct. The Turkish Federal Government, City of Istanbul, University of Istanbul Case Productions and ARTI cooperated to film this practical, scientific test. We collapsed a school and a home with 20 mannequins inside. Ten mannequins did 'duck and cover,' and ten mannequins I used in my 'triangle of life' survival method. After the simulated earthquake collapse we crawled through the rubble and entered the building to film and document the results. The film, in which I practiced my survival techniques under directly observable, scientific conditions , relevant to building collapse, showed there would have been zero percent survival for those doing duck and cover.
There would likely have been 100 percent survivability for people using my method of the 'triangle of life.' This film has been seen by millions of viewers on television in Turkey and the rest of Europe, and it was seen in the USA , Canada and Latin America on the TV program Real TV.

March 20, 2011
For immediate release
Event: National author and lecturer: SHERIFF RICHARD MACK
Subject: Dismantling Corporatocracy - Corporation-ruled government
Sovereignty, forced vaccination, health freedom and unreasonable invasion of privacy
Date: Sunday, March 27, 2011, Sondheim Center, Fairfield, Iowa, 1:00 - 4:30 p.m. Cost $15.00

In 1994, the Sheriff of a small, rural Arizona county, Richard Mack and six other sheriffs fought an Arizona gun control law-the infamous Brady Bill. That year, Arizona's Federal Judge, John Roll ruled favorably in Sheriff Richard Mack's case, which allowed Mack to continue his fight to the Supreme Court. In 1997 the Supreme Court, in an historical ruling against the Federal Government, agreed with Judge Roll and ruled that the Brady Bill violated the Fifth Amendment as well as the Tenth. Federal Judge John Roll was subsequently killed in the Gabrielle Gifford Tucson tragedy.
Sheriff Richard Mack, is the author of 4 books including From My Cold Dead Fingers, a clear and concise explanation of precisely why Americans need to preserve the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and County Sheriff: Americas Last Hope, providing irrefutable evidence from case law, common law and the constitution that it is the Sheriff, a locally elected official who has the jurisdiction and the authority to protect the citizens from threatening federal entities, federal agents, enemies both domestic and foreign. Sheriff Richard Mack will be the featured speaker at the new Sondheim Center in Fairfield, Iowa, this Sunday, March 27th, 1:00 - 4:30 p.m.
Last month, the Supreme Court ruled that all vaccine manufacturers are completely immune, held harmless, for any and all cases of vaccine injury. Yet law forces citizens to be vaccinated with dozens of vaccines under the threat of being denied a public education, health insurance and employment. Barbara Loe Fisher, co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center, Washington, DC, will open the event hosted by Clyde Cleveland, author of Common Sense Revisited. Ms. Fisher is considered, the nation's first and foremost leader of the vaccine movement…the movement concerned with upholding the sovereign right of the individual to dissent from being vaccinated by force, unlawfully detained or quarantined by the government. "There is no other word for this but Tyranny." - Barbara Loe Fisher
Quotes from the Speakers:
Sheriff Richard Mack: "Thomas Jefferson warned 'when all government shall be drawn to Washington as the center of all power, it will render powerless the checks provided, and become as venal and oppressive as the government from which we separated." The question is... "When government becomes venal and oppressive, to whom can the people turn to for peace, safety and freedom?"
Barbara Loe Fisher: "Exploitation of a captive people by a pharmaceutical industry seeking unlimited profits, a Prescription for Tyranny. Our citizens are subjected to mandatory use of dozens vaccines under the threat of being denied a public education, health insurance and employment. There is no other word for this but Tyranny." – Barbara Loe Fisher, Co-founder and president of the National Vaccine Information Center (www.NVIC.org) The largest, oldest and most experienced vaccine safety and informed consent watchdog in America! Barbara will appear by video conferencing.
Clyde Cleveland: "We can peacefully, and lawfully, re-inhabit our sovereign status and eliminate oppressive, top-down, de facto, federal corporate system in favor of a de jure, bottom-up, "By, of, and For the People”, Republic form of Government… This is what was intended by our founding fathers, and for which many in our country have given their lives to protect." Clyde Cleveland, Author of Common Sense Revisited (www.CommonSenseRevisited.com) and a Representative of the Republic for the united States.

The Medical Community Improperly and Unnecessarily Labels Millions With High Blood Pressure
Millions of people are currently misclassified as having abnormal blood pressure, according to Dr. Brent Taylor from the Veterans Affairs Health Care System in Minneapolis and the University of Minnesota and his colleagues. Their findings show that these people are not actually more likely to die prematurely than those with 'normal' blood pressure, i.e. below 120/80.
Don't Panic: Natural And Very Effective Alternatives To Potassium Iodide Are Everywhere

U.S. Supplies of potassium iodide pills are taking a huge hit as people flock to the stores in search of protection from possible nuclear fallout.
A number of stores across the west coast are reporting that they are completely sold out. And a pharmacist at a Walgreen’s in California told us that they would not be getting anymore because the government has seized all supplies.
Potassium iodide, which is sometimes are sold as anti-radiation pills can protect your thyroid from radiation by blocking the absorption of radioiodine. Potassium iodide does not protect from all side effects of radiation poisoning and can have a number of side effects. It should only be taken in prescription doses if the radiation reaches the coast at dangerous levels.

China blames the US HAARP Program For Catastrophic Earthquakes
June 1st, 2008
...'Russian Foreign Ministry reports are stating today the Prime Minister Putin’s ’sudden’ diplomatic trip to France was made at the behest of
China’s President Hu in order to ‘warn’ the European Union not to become involved with the US following what is widely expected to be a ‘retaliatory strike’ against the United States, and who the Chinese military has blamed for the catastrophic May 12th earthquake that has killed nearly 90,000 human beings.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska.
So powerful was this Shockwave, Britain’s Times Online News Service is reporting that the entire atmosphere over the Chinese earthquake zone became mysteriously changed 30 minutes prior to the 8.0 Magnitude Trembler:'...

Dear Conservative Party Agriculture Committee members,
I am OUTRAGED that you delayed the vote at the Agriculture Committee on
the motion for a moratorium on GM alfalfa, when the so-called "Harper
government" knows very well of the massive opposition to GMO crops and
foods in the electorate!
This moratorium is so important and you had a chance to support this
necessary concrete step to support farmers in Canada. not to mention the
health and well-being of all Canadians. When you add to this the fact that
the Canadian Codex delegation refuses to accept GMO labeling on food
products, you readily see that the "Harper government" is committed, not to
the well-being of Canadian farmers and all Canadians, but to the well-being
of MONSANTO. This is an unacceptable breach of trust with the Canadian
people, who elected you to protect their rights, not to abrogate them and
to legislate against their interests!
I demand that the motion be voted on as soon as possible and passed to the
House of Commons because the moratorium is urgently needed and generally
desired by Canadians. If you fail to represent our interests here, you can
expect to be out of a job after the coming election.
Please take positive and urgent action on this critical issue, or explain
your reasons to the Canadian people who WILL be informed.

Conservatives Block Vote on Moratorium on GM Alfalfa. Write your MP today!
UPDATE MARCH 10, 2011
Conservative Members of Parliament purposefully delayed a vote on the
motion for a moratorium on GM alfalfa at today's Agriculture Committee
meeting! A full hour was spent discussing the motion for a moratorium
without a vote ever being called. First, Conservatives protested
putting the motion ahead of others but the Chair, Conservative Larry
Miller, allowed the GM alfalfa motion to be debated. Then the
Conservatives delayed with their comments until the meeting time ran
out. The Liberals, NDP and Bloc members all support the moratorium so
if the vote had happened today, the motion would have been approved
and the motion would have passed to the House of Commons for a vote!
The motion will be debated at the next Committee meeting which could
be March 22. 16 members of the public, including farmers, attended the
Committee meeting on March 10 to witness Conservative delay tactics

Why is alfalfa important? In addition to export markets for processed
alfalfa products, alfalfa is used as a forage crop in pastures and as
hay for high-protein feed for dairy cows, beef cattle, lambs, and
pigs. It is a natural source of nitrogen to fertilize the soil, making
it particularly important for organic farming. Alfalfa can play a role
in producing your milk, eggs, honey, meat, grains and even vegetables!
Alfalfa is pollinated by bees and other insects, making it easy for GM
contamination to spread. Alfalfa is also a perennial crop meaning that
each new GM alfalfa plant can grow and produce viable seed for several
What is the motion? The motion that passed the Committee today asks the government to place a moratorium on approving the herbicide tolerant Roundup Ready alfalfa until the Government completes public research: “(a) into Canada’s ability to ensure the genetic integrity, production and preservation of a diversity of genetically modified organisms (GMOs), non-GMO and organic alfalfa production; (b) the ability of Canada’s handling and transportation system to ensure segregation of forage seeds and detection of genetic co-mingling in alfalfa seeds and hay; (c) the development of industry-led, third
party audit and verification systems;”

It's all been a hoax and it's all been an illusion, the world's always been in the clutches of the Devil's game with the illusion there is law and the hope of the return of a saviour and still their word of accountability in the illusion is ignored.
This is why this evil game on Earth is slowing down dramatically and it will soon be at a stop and then all on Earth will see the illusion that was created including all the Emporers are wearing no clothes as "they" are accountable and have no authority to be here or to play this evil game here on Earth when it is not even "their" Planet. In other words, their game is over, them and their Satanic God are accountable now to our Highest Authority, our Creator through my Invoking of the 2nd Law here in Australia and where now their mocking has come to an end.
I have Invoked the 2nd Law of the Universe here in Australia to have all accountable for illegal technology on Australian soil and here on Planet Earth and for violating the Laws of Creation. As shown in my CT-Scan, illegal technology is being used on Planet Earth and this illegal technology had been placed in me against my freewill and consent, when I was under the legal adult age of consent (then 21 years old) during the period when I was a Navy Clearance Diver involved in several clandestine acts, as stated in my Affidavit of 11/11/99.
"Technology" has violated creation - "IT and YOU" won't escape accountability through the 1971 Invoking -
Your Earth experience has ended - all alien races are accountable through my Invoking of the 2nd Law of the Universe.

We’re angry! MILLIONS of us are angry and outraged at the approval of GM alfalfa. And on top of that, the USDA also did an end-run around the courts to keep GM sugar beets growing, AND approved a GM corn used for ethanol.
So what do we do? Surrender? Never!
Before I propose a way forward, I want to share a victory you may have missed in the first paragraph. I said MILLIONS. That’s right, there are millions of us. And you can hear our frustration flying around in blogs, emails, press reports, petitions, etc. Do you remember the reaction just four years ago when GM sugar beets were approved for sale? There was nothing close to this response. It was hardly a blip. Where we have come in just a few years is a cause for celebration. And an unprecedented opportunity to throw our new weight around.
Within the first six months of last year, we witnessed more people in the US than ever before enthusiastically getting the word out about the dangers of GMOs. This was in part due to the huge internet distribution channels that have been getting articles and videos out to MILLIONS every month. (Thank you all!) And then there was the high profile media coverage of GE salmon and the sugar beet and alfalfa court cases.
In spite of their bitter outcomes at the hands of the USDA, the prolonged alfalfa and sugar beet fights actually helped elevate GMOs on our personal and national radar screens.
And now with MILLIONS of us grasping the significance and devastating loss of yet another crop, we have the components in place for a national revolution. We have the knowledge, the emotion, the network, and the profound injustice.
Now we need an action plan. Enter Alfalfa: Plan B.
It’s time to use our collective power to move the market directly. It’s time we let the food companies know that we have new healthier criteria if they want to keep us as customers. And front and center in those new criteria is to commit to no GM alfalfa in their supply chain (which is used as animal feed, particularly to dairy cows).
This is our moment! Send a letter to dozens of dairies and food companies simultaneously. Let them know how strong we feel and how MILLIONS strong we are. When they get the message about the coming non-GMO tipping point, they’ll realize it’s time to remove all GM ingredients, not just alfalfa.
Share this “click and send revolution” with your friends,
shop using the Non-GMO Shopping Guide,
and tell the food companies the truth about GMOs.
And for those who want to do even more, you are invited to join a local or national Non-GMO Action Group, to expand our numbers even further!

Urgent request from Inge
Please take a moment - right away - because today is the last day before they vote.
The Liberals have - finally - presented a motion calling for a temporary moratorium on the release of GE Alfalfa in Canada to the Agriculture Committee
GE Alfalfa has already been released in the USA.
Thank them – and put on public pressure to get it accepted.
We need a literal avalanche of letters - here NUMBERS count.
We have to make the message very clear - Canadians do not want any more GMOs released – especially not a perennial fodder crop like alfalfa (– which is also a honey source for bees – and will cause a further collapse of bee colonies.)
Please get any contacts that you have to do the same !!!

It is clear that Autism Speaks, perhaps the biggest, establishment-accepted Autism organization cannot or will not come out and articulate a relationship between vaccines and autism, ADHD, or any other vaccine injury. As a strategist, I can't help but give them the benefit of the doubt. The thought occurs to me that perhaps they "secretly agree with us" ...but if they come right out and connect Autism to vaccine injury, at this stage, they will not be able to play ball with the big boys...the establishment where the big bucks come from. However, the student Vaccine Liberation Army can help! (www.VaccineLiberationArmy.com) see sticker strategy in the header.
We can help Autism Speaks by walking with them, along side of them, shoulder to shoulder, at their nationwide Toys R Us Walk a thons, handing out Vaccine Liberation Army stickers. Now through April 30 a series of 80 Walk a Thons is scheduled through out the nation: Find the Walk A Thone in your area…

Let us know if you can attend the walk a thon by putting your zip code (and 200 mile radius) in the above link and if you will arrange to attend the walk a thon in your area... we will send you a free roll of 500 magnificent VLA stickers. Help support Autism Speaks!
Toys“R”Us, Inc. announced on Feb, 22, 2011 the launch of its nine-week in-store fundraising campaign to benefit Autism Speaks, North America’s largest autism science and advocacy organization.

Notice my highlighting below and see that only now are people in the USA beginning to fear harmonization with EU regulations... which, for the sake of trade harmony, they will be forced to do. Of course it will be "for the good of the industry" so that manufacturers can export all over the place and be confident in their ability to sell all over the world. Sounds okay on the surface until you realize that the price we pay for that is the lowest common denominator as a destination point.

Dark Times for Herbal Medicine in Europe
March 1, 2011
Our European Office, is preparing for a legal challenge against EU herb laws.
As we reported to you last November, thousands of products associated with traditional medicine will soon become illegal throughout the European Union (EU). And more and more, EU legislation influences US domestic policy, especially where health-related laws are concerned. The EU threat to herbal medicine is real, and we urge you to take stock of what’s going on so we can collectively jump in the minute anything similar emerges from US regulators. After all, it was that joint action from consumers and health organizations back in 1994 that has kept US regulations over dietary supplements relatively sane. But let’s not forget that this kind of freedom needs to be fought for every step of the way.
Here’s what our colleagues in the ANH Europe office are able to relay to you.
The EU has passed a stunning 139,338 directives, regulations and decisions since 1980. While it previously allowed European countries (now referred to as EU “member states”) to make up their own rules controlling natural healthcare products, there has been a push since around 2000 to control this area by rules formulated primarily by unelected bureaucrats in Brussels.(Paul Taylor said last week that they are "boiling the frog slowly", likely in order to slide the EUFSD into Canada and the USA without raising a hair until it is a fait accompli. ~ dn)
One of the laws that is set to devastate herbal medicines and products EU-wide, the Traditional Herbal Medicinal Products Directive (THMPD, also known as Directive 2004/24/EC) successfully passed into European law back in 2004. The law will be implemented fully on May 1 this year, and ANH-Intl has exhausted all options other than legal challenge in its efforts to protect the fundamental rights and freedoms of European citizens.
Under this Directive, Napoleonic law rules. Napoleonic law forms the basis of most EU laws and in effect means you’re guilty until proven innocent. (Notice that this power was given to the Health Minister in Bill C-36 ~dn) Apply this to products, it means a product is banned, unless it is specifically allowed. The drama for so many herbal products is that they are incapable of getting through the obstacle course set by the Directive. Many are locked out because they don’t meet the narrow eligibility criteria. Others, particularly complex herbal combinations, are knocked out because they can’t be made to meet the technical requirements better suited to single ingredients. A further major obstacle is the cost, prohibitive for most of the smaller players and traditional medicine manufacturers or suppliers. If it wasn’t so difficult to get a license, there of course wouldn’t be a problem.
The prime beneficiaries are the large European phytopharmaceutical companies who are getting a relatively small number of licenses, primarily for their alcohol extracts. Only a very small proportion of the around 200 products licensed so far across all twenty-seven EU member states contain whole plant material, and many are stuffed full of synthetic excipients that most of us would choose not to put in our bodies! These include additives as unpleasant as benzoate preservatives, sweeteners like sodium cyclamate (banned in the US) and aspartame, detergents like sodium lauryl sulphate, and polymers like polyvinyl pyrrolidone and polyvinyl alcohol, the latter having question marks over its potential carcinogenicity.
Only a tiny fraction of the total number of medicinal herbs have so far managed to get through the EU door. Currently, fewer than 50 species of medicinal plants are included in registered products, and that’s out of considerably more than 1000 that are regularly used by humans medicinally! Since the rules appear to have been set up to benefit the European phytopharmaceutical companies, it’s no surprise—but nonetheless a travesty— that not a single authentic herbal product from any of the non-European traditions has yet been registered. That equates to zero products from Ayurveda (India), Tibetan, traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), Amazonian, or southern African traditions, these being among the most well established in the world.
ANH-Intl is preparing to challenge these herb laws in court. It has nearly raised the money it needs for the first stage of its challenge in the UK courts, where the objective is to have the case referred to the European Court of Justice. We passionately believe that, as citizens and advocates of natural health, we must use all the means we have at our disposal to ensure justice is brought to bear.
This European law has a host of problems. Among these, it doesn’t do what it originally set out to do, which was to provide a suitable framework for all herbal traditions. To axe the most important, non-Europeans ones by setting an obstacle course that can’t be negotiated except by a few, is not justice. It is also in breach of a whole gamut of European laws that aim to promote fairness, proportionality, and transparency while also preventing discrimination.

In Canada, it's not just Monsanto... it's also Pfizer and Merck, whose alumni haunt the halls at Health
Canada! Last year, Health Minister Leona Aglukkaq (I call her Gag'n'yack) swore up and down there was no conflict of interest in hiring Bernard Prigent, VP of Pfizer, for the Canadian Institutes of Health Research... a granting body that hands out millions annually. What has Prigent done recently? He has copped $139 million for HIV VACCINE RESEARCH.... which is totally from the "as-if" department because there is NO SUCH THING as a vaccine for a retrovirus that does nothing! Just another fear construct to force people to demand the vaccine, aimed at injecting pure poison into millions, and making billions in the process!

American & Canadian Oil - can you believe this!!!!!!?
OIL - you better sit down... Here's an interesting read, important and verifiable information: About 6 months ago, the writer was watching a news program on oil and one of the Forbes Bros. Was the guest. The host said to Forbes, "I am going to ask you a direct question and I would like a direct answer; how much oil does the U.S. Have in the ground?" Forbes did not miss a beat, he said, "more than all the Middle East put together." Please read below.
The U. S. Geological Service issued a report in April 2008 that only scientists and oil men knew was coming, but man was it big. It was a revised report (hadn't been updated since 1995) on how much oil was in this area of the western 2/3 of North Dakota, western South Dakota , and extreme eastern Montana ...... Check THIS out:
The Bakken is the largest domestic oil discovery since Alaska 's Prudhoe Bay , and has the potential to eliminate all American dependence on foreign oil. The Energy Information Administration (EIA) estimates it at 503 billion barrels. Even if just 10% of the oil is recoverable... At $107 a barrel, we're looking at a resource base worth more than $5..3 trillion.
"When I first briefed legislators on this, you could practically see their jaws hit the floor. They had no idea.." says Terry Johnson, the Montana Legislature's financial analyst. "
This sizable find is now the highest-producing onshore oil field found in the past 56 years," reports The Pittsburgh Post Gazette. It's a formation known as the Williston Basin , but is more commonly referred to as the 'Bakken.' It stretches from Northern Montana, through North Dakota and into Canada .. For years, U. S. Oil exploration has been considered a dead end. Even the 'Big Oil' companies gave up searching for major oil wells decades ago. However, a recent technological breakthrough has opened up the Bakken's massive reserves.... And we now have access of up to 500 billion barrels. And because this is light, sweet oil, those billions of barrels will cost Americans just $16 PER BARREL!
That's enough crude to fully fuel the American economy for 2041 years straight. And if THAT didn't throw you on the floor, then this next one should - because it's from 2006!
U. S. Oil Discovery- Largest Reserve in the World Stansberry Report Online - 4/20/2006
Hidden 1,000 feet beneath the surface of the Rocky Mountains lies the largest untapped oil reserve in the world. It is more than 2 TRILLION barrels. On August 8, 2005 President Bush mandated its extraction. In three and a half years of high oil prices none has been extracted. With this motherload of oil why are we still fighting over off-shore drilling?
They reported this stunning news: We have more oil inside our borders, than all the other proven reserves on earth. Here are the official estimates:
- 8-times as much oil as Saudi Arabia
- 18-times as much oil as Iraq
- 21-times as much oil as Kuwait
- 22-times as much oil as Iran
- 500-times as much oil as Yemen
- and it's all right here in the Western United States .
HOW can this BE?
HOW can we NOT BE extracting this?
Because the environmentalists and others have blocked all efforts to help America become independent of foreign oil! Again, we are letting a small group of people dictate our lives and our economy.....WHY?
James Bartis, lead researcher with the study says we've got more oil in this very compact area than the entire Middle East -more than 2 TRILLION barrels untapped. That's more than all the proven oil reserves of crude oil in the world today, reports The Denver Post.
Don't think 'OPEC' will drop its price - even with this find? Think again! It's all about the competitive marketplace, - it has to. Think OPEC just might be funding the environmentalists?

Three Reasons Why Our Awakening Will Have Nothing To Do With, Or Result In A Revolution
The non-sociological definition of a revolution and the one most people are familiar with is "the forcible overthrow and thorough replacement of an established government or political system by the people governed." If you ask most freedom activists, they'll tell you that a coming revolution of this kind is inevitable. There are many reasons why the majority of the world will not move in this direction...here are three reasons why.
The Effect of Soda on Your Body
Carbonated soda pop provides more added sugar in a typical 2-year-old toddler's diet than cookies, candies and ice cream combined. Fifty-six percent of 8-year-olds down soft drinks daily, and a third of teenage boys drink at least three cans of soda pop per day. Now, evidence suggests that the added sugar lowers good cholesterol and raises risk of heart disease.

I got the same request from our "friends" in the NDP... Jack Layton, as most of you know, is my own
MP. I have to meet with him soon. I'm going to be saying a whole bunch of what is said here, because
as Jeremy rightly points out, a few of these guys are really okay.... and I would include Alex Atamanenko in that, but would not trust Layton as far as I could slingshot him on his suspenders.
People need to realize who is who in this debacle they call Parliament (ParLIEment) because there is an
election coming, and the whole lot need to go. Of course, that leaves us with little choice as there are no
alternative parties which can field a full slate of candidates, and before someone yells "there's always the
Greens"... remember, those guys were founded with Bronfman money.... the elite.... and were fully part of the global warming scam.
It's time that HONOUR was the sole qualification for Parliament, or in fact ANY level of governance. If there
is no honour in government, what, exactly, are we putting up with? RULERSHIP. It's now, according to
Harper's OWN DIRECTIONS, the "HARPER GOVERNMENT', not the Government of Canada. The dog
and pony show of the House of Commons has got to be tossed out and replaced with honorable men and women who truly want to DO the job they were hired for, instead of keeping the merry-go-round spinning.
Otherwise, God help us all.

To the Federal NDP members of Parliament.
Well all this is very interesting but when Canadians really needed you, the NDP, to protect them from Bill C-36, a bill designed to make you either stand up for Canadians or face the wrath of the dysfunctional Prime Minister and Minister of Health at election time, where were you, the NDP? Falling all over yourselves to protect yourselves from the name of this Bill - a misnamed catchy, ad type jingle of a name too - Consumer Product Safety.
Every one wants that but who wants what came with it? The only thing really missing from this bill is Consumer Product Safety !
I do not remember how many times I wrote begging all NDP MPs to look again at the potential damage to our soveriengty, the right of parliament to view international regulations before they became attached to Canadian laws, along with attacks on Canadians' Rights and Freedoms and the altering of the rule of law in Canada to mention just four, and yet you ignored both I and others and went full steam ahead to help pass the damn thing without any objections at all and it will go down in history as the fastest destruction of our Canadian peoples rights and freedoms.
The very concept that the Minister of Health will be the new version of judge and jury because everything against this act is a "violation of regulations" and not either a criminal or civil offense and therefore not subject to our courts of law, is repugnant to me. The courts are now irrelevent as far as this act is concerned and the precedent for future Conservative acts is set. You agreed to that. The Minister of Transport has already invoked the same powers concerning bridges and tunnels.
There are a few of you whom I respect for the work you are doing for Canada and your constituents, however in the case of this particular Bill even you failed us.
Now you have the nerve to come to me asking for money for some tame ads....you are way too late baby. I am as mad at you as I am at Harper, the Liberals and the Bloq, and hold you equally to blame for this bill and many others over the last five years that are designed to attack Canadians and protect corporations while you stand idly by squawking like some baby that had it's soother taken away.
I am very tired of Harper's lies, contempt and hatred for Canada and Canadians,
but I believe that you are helping to enable him. You are not alone in this as the Liberals and Bloq are equally enabling.
The proof of this is that he is still there as the most destructive prime minister since Mulroney and between them they are responsible for the demise of Canada as we have known it. This one though, has destroyed parliament as well and now you want to abolish the Senate and make it even easier for him.
Hope you can sleep at night knowing what is coming because I know I can not and do not. Some change is good, but I do not believe either Bill C-36 or abolishing the Senate are good.
I do not approve of what you are doing to my grandchildren.

My late uncle was head of Kraft's R&D back when their latest effort was Duncan Hines cake mixes....I added to my letter that he would be rolling in his grave, after being raised by a mother who had an acre of garden grown organically, and ate fresh food his whole life!
AND.... I happen to know personally that Kraft not only poisons us with unnatural concoctions, it also runs dirty factories.... I have seen a bottle of sauce made by Kraft with TWO MICE preserved in it.... Kraft maintained that the mice crawled into the bottle by themselves when it was left on a picnic table... in January.
This company has NOTHING TO DO WITH FOOD, AND EVERYTHING TO DO WITH PROFIT.
I'm passing along a consumer alert from the Organic Consumers Association's Millions Against Monsanto campaign:
Kraft hides under "natural" labels - that are not "natural" at all. They contain GMOs.
That is why I boycott Kraft products totally - and will continue to do so until Kraft is willing to commit to a non-GMO food production policy.
Kraft admits it uses genetically engineered bovine growth hormone generated milk - which has high levels of IGF-1, a growth factor correlated with increased cancer rates.
And, Boca, one of Kraft's so-called "natural" brands, admits it uses genetically modified soy, which increases herbicide use and is linked with plant diseases and animal infertility and miscarriages. One can only assume that non-organic Back to Nature products, also owned by Kraft, contain GMOs.
I've joined the Kraft boycott and I hope you will, too.
Email them (link below) to register your boycott. If they get enough letters, they will take notice. Food production companies in Britain did - in response to massive citizen refusal to buy.
In common cause - Inge

What the #!%*?: The ‘in-and-out’ spending scandal
Elections Canada investigator André Thouin leave the Conservative headquarters last April
Tamsin McMahon March 2, 2011 – 9:02 pm
In this occasional feature, the National Post tells you everything you need to know about a complicated issue. Today, Tamsin McMahon on the Conservatives’ “in-and-out” campaign scandal.
How did it work?
According to a federal court of appeal ruling last week, in late 2005 the Conservative Party had nearly maxed out its $18-million party spending limit a month in to the federal election campaign. So party officials devised a scheme to funnel money through the campaigns of various candidates who weren’t likely to spend their personal campaign limit.
The party invited candidates to participate in a joint “regional media” campaign to purchase radio and television ads that would run in their local riding, according to the ruling. The party wired the candidates money for the ads and within minutes transferred the money back to the party headquarters. The party told candidates they could claim the money as campaign expenses, with the government reimbursing them for 60% of the cost from taxpayer funds.
The court noted the ads that eventually ran were all identical and promoted leader Stephen Harper with only a tag line stating they had been approved by the official agent of the local candidate. Candidates claimed widely varying expenses for the ads, from as little as $1,092 to as much as $30,000, amounts the court of appeal said closely mirrored amounts left in their personal election spending limits.
The plan was derailed when Elections Canada refused to allow the candidates to claim the money as a local campaign expense in a protracted dispute that saw Elections Canada enlist the RCMP for a raid on Conservative Party headquarters in 2008.
Who was involved and how much money did they spend?
The 67 candidates who took part in the scheme included several cabinet ministers such as Foreign Affairs Minister Lawrence Cannon, Treasury Board President Stockwell Day, Natural Resources Minister Christian Paradis, Intergovernmental Affairs Minister Josee Verner and former Foreign Affairs Minister Maxime Bernier. In total, it allowed the party to spend an additional $1.2 million above their limit, Elections Canada has said.
What have the courts found?
In January, 2010, a federal court sided with the Conservative Party, arguing that candidates could claim expenses for the ads. But the court of appeal ruling last week overturned the judgment, saying Elections Canada had a right to question the expenses. The Conservatives have vowed to appeal to the Supreme Court of Canada, a move campaign finance experts say will finally bring some clarity to federal spending limit loopholes.
In a separate case, the Commissioner of Canada Elections filed charges under the Elections Act late last month against four Tory fundraisers for exceeding federal spending limits and improperly reporting campaign expenses.
“It’s a serious matter,” said Dan Brien of the Public Prosecution Service. “There are allegations of illegal activity.”
What has the political debate been on the dispute?
Question Period on Wednesday was dominated by the issue as the Liberals accused the Conservatives of fraud, while the Conservatives called the issue an administrative dispute.
“Conservatives have been caught red-handed and their election fraud system is now visible for all to see,” said Liberal MP Dominic Leblanc, adding that “a lot of people in prison thought they had an administrative disagreement too.’’
Prime Minister Stephen Harper said the spat with Elections Canada was merely an issue of legal interpretation and that the party had changed their election spending practises three years ago. “It’s not a question of illegal funds,” he said. “It’s a question of the definition of spending as to whether it is local or national.”
How common is it for parties to try to find creative ways around spending limits?
Exploiting loopholes isn’t uncommon, said David Coletto, head of the polling firm Abacus Data and a campaign finance expert. But abuses can be difficult to find. For instance, he said, the local riding association will often claim rent expenses for a candidate, rather than the candidate themselves, to get around local spending limits.
But a scandal such as this at the national level is unique in Canada, said Lisa Young, a University of Calgary political scientist. In the past, local candidates were able to raise more money than the party headquarters, but changes to campaign finance laws have shifted fundraising power to the national parties, and that has also shifted the pressure onto party headquarters to spend more.
What’s driving this creative accounting?
The country has some of the most stringent campaign finance laws in the developed world, Mr. Coletto said. But spending limits don’t cover the lead-up to an election, when parties can gear up with unfettered spending on attack ads. That puts the Conservative party, with is powerful fundraising machine, at an advantage and have likely helped boost their approval ratings in public opinion polls, he said.
The emphasis on expensive television advertising is at the root of the push for fundraising and has increased pressure on national parties to find ways around spending limits, said York University political scientist Robert MacDermid.
“The belief that you need to run more and more commercials on television is insatiable,” he said. “It drives these in-an-out schemes and leads to the kind of pressure to spend more at the central level.”

Subject: US Awards $215 Million for New Flu Vaccines/Scientists Create More Potent H1N1 Hybrid/US Government Illegally Experimented on Maryland Prisoners
US awards $215 million pacts for flu vaccines made with insect cells, e.coli 28 Feb 2011 Drug makers Novavax Inc. and VaxInnate Inc. have won contracts worth a combined $215 million to develop flu vaccines for the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. In the wake of the[ir] swine flu pandemic, the World Health Organization has said health authorities need to ramp up the speed and volume of production during the[ir] next global outbreak... Rockville, Md.-based Novavax Inc. won a contract worth $97 million over three years, with an option to extend the contract for two years for a total value of $179.1 million. Novavax will develop new technology to make vaccines using insect cells.
[We can't get the public option, or pay firemen and teachers -- but there's $215 million to pay pharma-terrorists to make vaccines with insect cells and e.coli, to 'battle' the outbreaks and pandemics that they themselves create?

Scientists mix H1N1, H9N2 to create hybrid viruses packed with 'greater killing power' --'The possibility of novel pandemic strains being generated from reassortment between avian H9N2 and H1N1/2009 influenza viruses exists.' 28 Feb 2011 The H1N1 swine flu virus is compatible with a bird flu virus that is endemic in poultry in Asia and they can produce hybrid viruses packed with greater killing power, Chinese researchers warned on Monday. The scientists made 127 hybrid viruses by mixing genes of the H1N1 and the avian H9N2 virus in a laboratory, and eight of the hybrids turned out to be more virulent than either parents when tested in mice.
U.S. govt doctors sprayed pandemic flu virus in the noses of Maryland prisoners --Pictures that show how U.S. experimented on its own disabled citizens and prison inmates 28 Feb 2011 Pictures have emerged providing the shocking proof that U.S. government doctors once experimented on disabled American citizens and prison inmates. Such experiments included giving hepatitis to mental patients in Connecticut, squirting a pandemic flu virus up the noses of prisoners in Maryland, and injecting cancer cells into chronically ill people at a New York hospital... For a study in 1957, when the Asian flu pandemic was spreading, federal researchers sprayed the virus in the noses of 23 inmates at Patuxent prison in Jessup, Md., to compare their reactions to those of 32 virus-exposed inmates who had been given a new vaccine.
