Thx Jeff, Yes of course Krill numbers increase as the Por increases in the oceans thus Marine Life explodes proportionally! 

That is it, now when people in mass numbers discern this and then how many more have to toss a single Orgonite tb into the nearest sea before We see biblical proportions of exploding sea Life numbers?  In a lot of areas I believe We are almost there already!

 

Orwell's 1984 written 70 years ago?  finally reaches the best sellers list!  Is this just another sign the masses are all waking at once?  Imho nothing is more responsible for all these positive changes than the distribution of simple cheap effective Orgonite loaded with metal, any metal!  Like Don Croft has said "some sweepings from a machine shop floor , You might want to pick out the butts first though ;-)"

ONTARIO PULLS PLUG ON 36,000 RURAL ‘SMART’ METERS: IS BIG ENERGY IMPLODING?

Oh yeah perfectly safe to have on Your wall but if removed where protective clothing!  

ONTARIO REMOVES 36000 SMART METERS TO START

Last night I watched The Big Short — maybe the most important Hollywood film in years. This true story is a powerful and eloquent invitation to wake up to the sheer depravity at the core of the system of commerce.

The fact that the film got nominated for 5 Oscars including Best Picture is a huge sign that there are way more people waking up than we ever thought. The wrongs may not be getting righted as quickly as we’d like, but it is happening.

The reality of this shift is clearly evidenced by this news last week from Ontario. After years of obvious problems, Hydro One finally admitted that rural ‘smart’ meters do not work, and has decided to pull the plug on 36,000 of them — to start. We will see more utilities begin to do likewise. [UPDATE: BC Hydro just announced plans to remove 88,000 meters suspected of failure.]

Costing ratepayers billions, smart meters are actually designed to unlawfully harvest detailed data of the in-home activities of occupants without their knowledge or consent.

As reported by the National Post:

“Astonishing,” was the reaction from Lanark-area MPP Randy Hillier, who has been deluged with complaints about Hydro One billing and smart-meter suspicions.

“I’ve been banging my head against the wall for the last five years, saying we’ve got problems with smart meters in rural Ontario.” Since first being elected in 2007, no single issue has attracted as much attention in his riding, he said.

For the purpose of clarification: at this time Hydro One is not planning to uninstall smart meters and replace with analogs — but rather to manually read rural customers’ meters quarterly, and estimate the months in between, because the wireless reporting is simply not working.

More than 10,000 billing complaints have been filed with the Ontario Ombudsman, and the Auditor General of Ontario released a scathing report, calling out the smart metering program as a total flop.

Hydro One was the first major utility in Canada to deploy so-called ‘smart’ meters upon an unsuspecting customer base. The price tag for rollout, paid for by the people of Ontario, was $2 billion — which was $900M over budget.

Go Green, or Go Greed?

For those new to this topic, here’s the skinny. Smart utility meters are being deployed worldwide under the banner of climate action. But they typically increase energy usage, and a high-level industry executive has admitted that the data collected by the surreptitious devices will be worth “a lot more” than the electricity itself.

Portland State University recently published a brilliant report on the morally-bankrupt surveillance agenda behind smart meters. The industry-gutting report is titled “The Neoliberal Politics of ‘Smart’: Electricity Consumption, Household Monitoring, and the Enterprise Form,” and excerpts can be read at Smart Grid Awareness here.

Customers are not being informed how their constitutional rights are being violated for the purposes of a for-profit home surveillance network. Nor how this technology has caused thousands of fires which have resulted in several deaths. Nor how our bodies are being affected by pulsed microwave radiation exponentially stronger than cell phones, as shown in Take Back Your Power.

If there wasn’t an avalanche of facts to back all of this up, it might sound too unbelievable to be true. But we live in strange times.

We Can Handle The Truth

Just like the banking system, the energy system has likewise become rotten to the core. To change both will require a complete overhaul and the embrace of a challenge to our comfort zone.

It is both harrowing and exciting for one to discover that there are major societal programs which are simply manufactured lies fueled by the idea of lack. That there’s not enough energy, food, resources, money. In reality, there is enough for all life to survive — and to thrive. It is provable fact that these truths have been suppressed.

Case in point: a 1971 de-classified US Army briefing actually calls for the secretization of solar technology which has greater than 20% efficiency (see page 14). This was back in 1971! And, of course, it’s in the name of national security and property interests.

Meanwhile, the energy mafia in Nevada just decreed a 40% fee hike for solar-producing customers, while reducing the amount paid for excess power sold to the grid, effectively killing the solar industry there.

There is a war on energy. When we understand the level of corruption involved, the implications are enormous. And we must act to solve this problem.

I believe that the suppression of solutions is a dam ready to burst. And I’m optimistic of our passing through this dark night successfully, as we are learning to connect and serve the higher good. There is really no other choice.

Watcher of the skies watcher of all

His is a world alone no world is his own,

 He whom life can no longer surprise,

 Raising his eyes beholds a planet unknown.

 

Peter Gabriel, “Watcher of the Skies”, 1972

 

Gare, that’s a stupendous article, thanks for the addition!

“there are major societal programs which are simply manufactured lies fueled by the idea of lack. That there’s not enough energy, food, resources, money. In reality, there is enough for all life to survive — and to thrive. It is provable fact that these truths have been suppressed.”

Yes, see my following post!

“I believe that the suppression of solutions is a dam ready to burst.”

Yes, see my following post! I’d already written it and was ready to post when I read yours. So you can see how all the paths are running together, to victory…

 

The story that follows, headlined “Portland teen discovers cost-effective way to turn salt water into drinkable fresh water”, documents an achievement that is from my perspective on a par with the greatest inventions in the history of the planet.

In that the control, monetization and weaponization of the water supply of all humanity has been and continues to be one of the big efforts of the fair-seeming folks in charge, who do not have our best interests at heart, as they profess. Now, the fact that they were doing it on a planet that is covered in water always amazed me, and I’m sure that spectacular deviance is part of the appeal for them. Beyond, you know, generally increasing pain, suffering and Death, as is their modus operandi.

So the fact that a high school kid has upended that whole black programme in a moment, with a pen stroke, is bananas. And we’re not just talking about drinking water, we’re also talking about irrigation, farming, feeding the hungry.

What’s so instructive, and inspiring, is that it was all about looking at the problem in a new way.

"People have been looking at the problem from one view point, how do we break those bonds between salt and the water? Chai came in and thought about it from a completely different angle,"

Rising awareness.

"Now he's working on at least mentally thinking about idea of killing cancer cells from the inside out.”

One person, who said, “I’m going to look at things in a new way, think about things from different angles.” Throwing off world-changing greatness.

Let’s hear from the boy: "Some problems seem like impossible problems, but to call them impossible problems is a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more you think about it as impossible, the more impossible it becomes sometimes,"

“It's important what you do has an impact on people," Karamchedu added.

Think he’s the only one? Like, Mozart or something? I don’t. I think he’s just a high school kid, with a great outlook and attitude.

Welcome to the future.

Portland teen discovers cost-effective way to turn salt water into drinkable fresh water

February 3, 2017

PORTLAND, OR (KPTV) - A Portland teen is turning heads across the country all because of a science experiment that began in his high school classroom. Companies like Intel and universities like MIT are now invested in his findings.

With certainty you'll want to remember his name.

"My name is Chaitanya Karamchedu, but you can call me Chai," said the Jesuit High School Senior.

Karamchedu has big plans of changing the world.

"1 in 8 people do not have access to clean water, it's a crying issue that needs to be addressed," said Karamchedu.

He made up his mind to address the matter himself.

"The best access for water is the sea, so 70 percent of the planet is covered in water and almost all of that is the ocean, but the problem is that's salt water," said Karamchedu.

Isolating drinkable water from the ocean is a problem that's stumped scientists for years.

"Scientists looked at desalination, but it's all still inaccessible to places and it would cost too much to implement on a large scale," Karamchedu added.

Karamchedu figured it out, on his own, in a high school lab.

"The real genesis of the idea was realizing that sea water is not fully saturated with salt," Karamchedu said.

By experimenting with a highly absorbent polymer, the teen discovered a cost effective way to remove salt from ocean water and turn it into fresh water.

"It's not bonding with water molecules, it's bonding to the salt," said Karamchedu.

It's his creativity that makes this a big deal.

"People have been looking at the problem from one view point, how do we break those bonds between salt and the water? Chai came in and thought about it from a completely different angle," said Jesuit High School Biology Teacher Dr. Lara Shamieh. "People were concentrated on that 10 percent of water that's bonded to the salt in sea and no one looked at the 90 percent that was free. Chai just looked at it and said if 10 percent is bonded and 90 is free, why are we so focused on this 10 percent, let's ignore it and focus on 90."

It's a breakthrough that's estimated to impact up millions of lives if implemented on a mass scale.

"What this is compared to current techniques, is that it's cheap and accessible to everyone, everyone can use it," said Shamieh.

Scientists across the country are taking note. He won a $10,000 award from the US Agency for International Global Development at Intel's International Science Fair and second place at MIT's TechCon Conference where he won more money to continue his research.

"They were very encouraging, they could see things into it that I couldn't, because they've been working their whole lives on this," said Karamchedu.

A contribution to science that's sure to make a difference. Though he's not done yet.

"Now he's working on at least mentally thinking about idea of killing cancer cells from the inside out. I keep telling him to remember his high school biology teacher when he wins the Nobel prize," said Shamieh.

"Some problems seem like impossible problems, but to call them impossible problems is a self-fulfilling prophecy. The more you think about it as impossible, the more impossible it becomes sometimes," said Karamchedu.

A line of thinking, by one gifted teen, that just might cure Cancer.

"I can really see beauty in things that aren't immediately applicable, and at the same time I want to do something to make a difference that's not completely in the abstract. It's important what you do has an impact on people," Karamchedu added.

Back in January, Karamchedu was also named one of 300 Regeneron Science Talent Search Semifinalists. The STS is thought to be one of the most prestigious competitions in nation for high school seniors.

“Oceanic society rests ultimately on the belief that Big Brother is omnipotent and that the Party is infallible. But since in reality Big Brother is not omnipotent and the party is not infallible, there is need for an unwearying, moment-to-moment flexibility in the treatment of facts. The keyword here is BLACKWHITE. Like so many Newspeak words, this word has two mutually contradictory meanings. Applied to an opponent, it means the habit of impudently claiming that black is white, in contradiction of the plain facts. Applied to a Party member, it means a loyal willingness to say that black is white when Party discipline demands this. But it means also the ability to BELIEVE that black is white, and more, to KNOW that black is white, and to forget that one has ever believed the contrary.”

March 14, 2016 - Ocean salmon fishing shutdown an option for 2016 season

August 4, 2016 – The catch of Pacific pink salmon in the Far Eastern basin up 40.3% on the same period of 2014.

November 4, 2016 – British Columbia - Record Breaking Salmon Runs in 2016

In the Johnstone Strait and near the Fraser River are fishing the strongest returns in many years. On October 17th, the largest catch ever recorded in a Johnstone Strait chum salmon fishery took place. The seine fleet pulled in 800,000 fish in one day!

Chum salmon returns in Nootka Sound have been returning in numbers so much higher than expected, the DFO has opened fishing to the entire fleet.

The reality is that BC has a large coast and many salmon runs are doing better than they have in years! In fact, right now, one of the largest chum salmon returns in recorded BC history is taking place and most people know nothing about it.

 

 

 

The quotes immediately above are to help you understand that the fair-seeming, nattily-suited folks in charge are not your friends, as they profess, and that they are lying to you about basically everything, including the salmon.

Nature's resurgence and revival is not stopping. It's increasing in speed and magnitude. How long do you think the dam of lies saying Nature's not doing well is going to hold back the truth of what's going on from reaching larger awareness? Not very long, I don't think.

 

February 23, 2016 - Wild Atlantic Salmon Return to Connecticut River

 

March 1, 2016 – After lower runs of steelhead the past few falls, Wisconsin’s Brule River bounced back to a run of 5,660 steelhead in the fall of 2015. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources announced the fall-run totals for steelhead, brown trout and coho salmon this past week.

Last fall’s steelhead run was about twice the total of runs from three of the past four years. That trend was a cause for concern for some anglers.

 

Mar 14, 2016 - Ocean salmon fishing shutdown an option for 2016 season

 

April 6, 2016 – Sturgeon returning to the Suwannee River

 

May 19, 2016 – St. Louis River comes back to life, but it's still not in the clear.

 

June 10, 2016 – Alaska - Annual limits loosened as king salmon surge into Deshka River ...

 

June 16, 2016 – Maine – Return of the shad: Anglers target Penobscot after 150-year hiatus ...

 

August 4, 2016 – The catch of Pacific pink salmon in the Far Eastern basin totaled 187,700 metric tons as of Aug. 1, 2016, up 40.3% on the same period of 2014.

 

September 27, 2016 – After Decades Away, River Otters Make a Triumphant Return to the Bay Area

 

November 4, 2016 – Record Breaking Salmon Runs in 2016

The media loves a bad news story. All summer and fall, you probably saw headlines like “‘Grim’ Fraser River salmon runs even worse than forecast” and “Low B.C. salmon stocks prompt consumer warning.” With headlines like this, it’s easy to start to wonder if we should even be eating BC salmon. There’s no doubt that there are some serious conservation issues to be addressed here and attention needs to be paid to the causes of the decline of salmon in some areas.

But the reality is that BC has a large coast and many salmon runs are doing better than they have in years! In fact, right now, one of the largest chum salmon returns in recorded BC history is taking place and most people know nothing about it. As a member of Skipper Otto’s Community Supported Fishery, you know your fisherman, know the exact run, gear method, and month your fish was caught – assurance that the salmon you are eating comes from bountiful, stable runs and that the fishermen who caught your fish were paid a fair-trade price. And while the Fraser River sockeye run is in serious trouble, we should take comfort knowing that the Fraser River is teeming with salmon right now, returning precious nutrients up the river, feeding bears, eagles, and the entire ecosystem. And, if we educate ourselves and broaden our diets to include what is bountiful in a given year, then we, too, can enjoy a bounty of wild, sustainable, fair-trade, BC salmon for generations to come.

So, let’s take a moment to look at 5 salmon runs in BC that were really strong in 2016!

1.Smith Inlet Sockeye Salmon, on BC’s central Coast, north of Port Hardy near Calvert Island.

Salmon spawning up Smith Inlet pass through the Docee River Counting Fence. Precise records have been kept since 1972, so we know the exact numbers in that run over the past 44 years. The numbers have fluctuated wildly and, for the past couple of decades, there were no commercial fisheries on Smith Inlet sockeye salmon as the numbers were so low. This year 188,464 sockeye salmon passed that fence, the highest number in 23 years! The fishery went terminal (meaning that the maximum number of spawners filled the spawning beds and any subsequent spawners would just be digging up the eggs of other salmon and not increasing the spawn size). As a result, weeks of successful fisheries took place in late summer.

2.Barkley Sound Sockeye Salmon, on the west coast of Vancouver Island between Bamfield and Ucluelet.

For a 3rd year in a row, sockeye salmon returning to Barkley Sound to spawn up the Somass River returned in numbers higher than expected. Commercial, aboriginal, and recreational fisheries went on well into July on this abundant run.

3.Nitnat Chum Salmon, on the west coast of Vancouver Island between Bamfield and Port Renfrew.

The Nitnat hatchery has operated on Vancouver Island’s west coast since it was built in 1980 “to help sustain salmon populations for local commercial, recreational and Ditidaht First Nations fisheries.” This October, chum salmon returning to that hatchery came back in very strong numbers. What was expected to be a very limited fishery was expanded to a full fleet opening when numbers of these chum salmon showed up higher than expected.

4.Nootka Sound Chum Salmon, on the west coast of Vancouver Island, north of Tofino.

Chum salmon returns in Nootka Sound have been returning in numbers much higher than expected this year. The Department of Fisheries and Oceans had only planned to permit a limited fleet to fish these runs, selected by random draw. However, since the numbers have been so much higher than expected, the DFO has opened fishing to the entire fleet. Fishing there continues to be strong at the time of writing.

5.Johnstone Strait/ Fraser River Chum Salmon, between Vancouver Island and mainland BC, between Campbell River and Port McNeill.

Although Fraser River sockeye numbers have hit a record low, other salmon species returning to the Fraser are doing extremely well. Commercial, aboriginal, and recreational fisheries targeting these runs in the Johnstone Strait and near the Fraser River are fishing the strongest returns in many years. On October 17th, the largest catch ever recorded in a Johnstone Strait chum salmon fishery took place. The seine fleet pulled in 800,000 fish in one day! In the last week of October, one of our fishermen nearly sunk his net, it was so full of huge, beautiful chum salmon! At the time of writing, this and many other chum fisheries have gone terminal and are open for fishing until further notice.

"To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which canceled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself -- that was the ultimate subtlety; consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word 'doublethink' involved the use of doublethink."

“Plains bison are back in Banff after more than 100 years “, much to the consternation of the descendants of those who shot them from trains for fun a hundred and fifty years ago or so.

It will give you an idea of how hard it is to get a parasite to release its grip when you learn that “This release is part of a five-year reintroduction plan that will evaluate whether it's feasible to manage a wild herd in the park over the long term.”

As if the creature indigenous to the land would be unable to survive, there. They’re just keeping their dark hopes alive, of maybe killing them all again, later, a la “end it”, here: “At the end of the term, Parks Canada will decide whether to maintain the project, expand it or end it.”

But I see it as just another battle they’re losing, and they’re losing most of them, these days. And wars don’t go on forever.

And, by the way, there’s no rule I’m aware of that says “this genetically-related cult of barely-closeted Death worshippers gets to rule in perpetuity.”

The only reason they’ve had the success they’ve had is the credulity and schizoid nature of the populace they rule. But everyone’s got to grow up, sometime.

And I think the story that follows demonstrates that we are.

 

http://www.calgarysun.com/2017.....-100-years

 

Plains bison are back in Banff after more than 100 years

After more than 100 years, plains bison are once again roaming their historical range in Banff's Eastern Slopes.

Parks Canada has successfully relocated 16 bison from Elk Island National Park to the remote Panther Valley in Banff National Park.

For 16 months, the bison will remain in an enclosed pasture in the valley, monitored by Parks Canada. In summer 2018, the herd will be released to explore a 1,200-square-kilometre zone in the Red Deer and Cascade river valleys where they will be free to interact with other native species and forage for food. Natural barriers and stretches of wildlife fencing will hopefully discourage the bison from leaving the zone.

"By returning plains bison to Banff National Park, Parks Canada is taking an important step toward restoring the full diversity of species and natural processes to the park’s ecosystems while providing new opportunities for Canadians and visitors to connect with the story of this iconic species," said Catherine McKenna, federal minister of environment and climate change.

More than a century ago, bison grazed on the land that is now Banff National Park. Bringing them back to Banff restores a keystone species to the landscape and provides a cultural connection to First Nations who once hunted the animal. At one time, there were as many as 30 million bison on the plains but they nearly became extinct due to overhunting. The Canadian government bought one of the last surviving herds in the early 1900s and they were protected in a paddock at the base of Cascade Mountain for almost 100 years. They were removed in 1997.

This release is part of a five-year reintroduction plan that will evaluate whether it's feasible to manage a wild herd in the park over the long term. At the end of the term, Parks Canada will decide whether to maintain the project, expand it or end it.

The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. One of those variants is “no one can say”.

That’s why a story about a bumper crop of razor clams in Barnstable, MA says “No one can say exactly why some years see more razor clams than others.

You’ll see a whole bunch of “bumper crop” stories, below, which is evidence, data, that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

A story about a bumper grape harvest in Australia notes that “high rainfall and cooler temperatures in September and October had pushed back the winery’s usual harvest time from the first week of February to the end of February.”

That’s a data point underscoring that the great artificial drought has been broken, and is also a head scratcher in that last year was purportedly the hottest in the history of the planet – I guess that is except of course for Australia this past fall. To preserve current programming levels, narrow eyes and say bitterly “yeah, but that’s THERE.”

“The Ministry of Peace concerns itself with war, the Ministry of Truth with lies, the Ministry of Love with torture and the Ministry of Plenty with starvation. These contradictions are not accidental, nor do they result from from ordinary hypocrisy: they are deliberate exercises in doublethink.”

That’s half a decade of booming sea turtle numbers you just chewed on. And you can see how the folks who are for this moment still in charge of things on this globe hope that one thin propaganda line is going to hold back the truth of what’s going on, and I personally think that’s not a reasonable supposition.

All of the turtle accounts are factual, actual, metric. While the propaganda line is hypothetical, a trial-balloon, something thrown up against a wall to see what sticks. It’s hypothetical, it’s a “Fear of sea turtle extinction…”

It’s February, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind, I’ve presented multiple examples below to support it.

The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. One of those variants is “unknown”.

That’s why one of the italicized propaganda pieces below says “This year's early count of sea turtles nesting on Florida beaches is encouraging, though there are many unknowns in the numbers.” 

But you can see how the positive changes are increasing in speed and magnitude, while the propaganda techniques used to rebut them are not.

And propaganda has a lifespan.

It’s February, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime. Since that statement directly refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind”, I’ve appended multiple recent examples below to support it.

I got canned from my job with no notice yesterday, budget cuts the reason, and, after review, I believe that rationale is legitimate. Versus someone messing with me, like last time I got canned.

So I’m home, and I’m on a laptop, not pecking on my tablet.

A friend and I were talking recently about how he felt the world was getting more “steerable”, where thought’s influence upon reality was becoming more pronounced. That coming out of a friend of my wife’s asking my wife a series of questions about a job she’d just landed. And, in the middle of asking the questions, the company called the gal to answer just those questions.

Another story that generated the “steerable” comment was this one: another friend of mine’s girlfriend came home with a “find your spirit guide” video. They cued it, and my friend fell asleep almost instantly. He woke up right before the end of the tape, remembering nothing about it. His girlfriend said “you slept through the whole thing!” He replied “I think my spirit guide is a Red-Tailed Hawk.” She said “it didn’t say anything about animals – it was about people – you’re just making that up to have something to say…”

The next day – let me repeat, the next day – he went out for a mountain bike ride. He’s riding, sees a group of crows heading toward him, harrying a bird. The group gets closer. It’s a Red-Tailed Hawk. He stops, dumbfounded. The hawk lands in a tree about twenty feet from him, and many crows follow. The crows leave, just the hawk’s left. It’s looking directly at him. Then it takes off and heads straight toward him. He thinks “is it going to attack me? Land on my shoulder? Am I going to transmute into a bird?” It flies directly over his head, so close he can hear the wind in its feathers. It keeps flying, turns it’s head, looks straight at him, gives one cry, heads off.

Oh, and he got a cell phone pic of it. Which he said looked weird, the head of the bird looking almost humanoid. I said “send me the picture”. I’ll post it here when I get it.

So I’m just tossing all that in here for the record.

If you look at the stunning transformation taking place in the Natural world, it’s, well, pretty miraculous, amazing. Or it appears so, because the slow, steady, ever-increasing depth of Dead Orgone Radiation in the environment over hundreds, nay thousands of years backed us down to where the world wasn’t ‘miraculous’ any more. And now that things are returning to normal, it appears ‘miraculous.’

October 16, 2016 - Is Marijuana Responsible for Colorado Crime Increase? - Snopes.com

February 7, 2017 - Might marijuana legalization "be inducing a crime drop" in US states?

 

An article that I’ve appended below shows us that the serious crime rate in Brunswick, GA dropped 16% last year, part of a larger drop of 40% over the last two years. While the headline of that article reads "City crime rate dropped in 2016, but gangs persist’. Why don’t they say “City crime rate dropped 16% in 2016”, or “City crime rate dropped 40% in two years'? Why do they omit any percentage in the headline? That’s because printing the percentage would be more impactful, so they protectively hedged by omitting it. And saying “but gangs persist” is another hedging qualifier. Can’t you just hear the querulous voice of the finger-wagging old man?

Another article below, also from Georgia, is headlined "Bibb's serious crime rate drops 7 percent in 2016.” Isn’t that great that they printed the percentage? Well, yes, unless you factor in the burying of this quote farther below in the article: "There was a total of 20 homicides in 2016 – 8 less than in 2015 – a 28 percent drop.” So they’ve hedged, and led with the smaller percentage - the one less-damaging to their agenda.

Last time I was through Georgia, I didn’t notice that weed had been legalized. So why do I read "Might marijuana legalization "be inducing a crime drop" in US states?”, when it’s plummeting in both states that have legalized, but also in states that have not? That’s because it’s a specious trial-balloon, something thrown up against the wall to see what sticks - a hoped-for plausible-deniability excuse for your ensheepled subconscious to grasp onto, in hopes you don’t notice the larger trend I’m elucidating here down over time. You can tell from the question “might?"

I don’t know why I natter on like this, as anyone who reads the quotes at the top unmoved is sufficiently programmed that, for this moment, anyway, they are not going to be any further impressed by logic, or reason, or pie charts.

But we all know how the story “The Emperor’s New Clothes” turned out, so I’m going to keep at it, here.

Army veterans return to Standing Rock to form a human shield against police

A growing group of military veterans are willing to put their bodies between Native American activists and the police trying to remove them

February 11, 2017

U.S. veterans are returning to Standing Rock and pledging to shield indigenous activists from attacks by a militarized police force, another sign that the fight against the Dakota Access pipeline is far from over.

Army veterans from across the country have arrived in Cannon Ball, North Dakota, or are currently en route after the news that Donald Trump’s administration has allowed the oil corporation to finish drilling across the Missouri river.

The growing group of military veterans could make it harder for police and government officials to try to remove hundreds of activists who remain camped near the construction site and, some hope, could limit use of excessive force by law enforcement during demonstrations.

“We are prepared to put our bodies between Native elders and a privatized military force,” said Elizabeth Williams, a 34-year-old air force veteran, who arrived at Standing Rock with a group of vets late on Friday. “We’ve stood in the face of fire before. We feel a responsibility to use the skills we have.”

It is unclear how many vets may arrive to Standing Rock; some organizers estimate a few dozen are on their way, while other activists are pledging that hundreds could show up in the coming weeks. An estimated 1,000 veterans traveled to Standing Rock in December just as the Obama administration announced it was denying a key permit for the oil company, a huge victory for the tribe.

The massive turnout – including a ceremony in which veterans apologized to indigenous people for the long history of US violence against Native Americans – served as a powerful symbol against the $3.7bn pipeline.

But the presence of vets was not without controversy. Some said the groups were disorganized and unprepared to camp in harsh winter conditions, and others lamented that they weren’t following the directions of the Native Americans leading the movement.

Vets with post-traumatic stress disorder also suffered in the cold and chaotic environment without proper support, said Matthew Crane, a US navy veteran who is helping coordinate a return group with the organization VeteransRespond. His group has vowed to be self-sufficient and help the activists, who call themselves “water protectors”, with a wide range of services, including cleanup efforts, kitchen duties, medical support and, if needed, protection from police.

“This is a humanitarian issue,” said Crane, 33. “We’re not going to stand by and let anybody get hurt.”

On Friday afternoon, as snow rapidly melted during an unusually warm day in Cannon Ball, Jake Pogue helped organize a vets camp area at Sacred Stone, the first camp that emerged last spring in opposition to the pipeline.

“We’re not coming as fighters, but as protectors,” said the 32-year-old marine corps vet, noting that he was concerned about police escalating tactics. “Our role in that situation would be to simply form a barrier between water protectors and the police force and try to take some of that abuse for them.”

Since last fall, police have made roughly 700 arrests, at times deploying water cannons, Mace, rubber bullets, teargas, pepper spray and other less-than-lethal weapons. Private guards for the pipeline have also been accused of violent tactics.

“We have the experience of standing in the face of adverse conditions – militarization, hostility, intimidation,” said Julius Page, a 61-year-old veteran staying at the vets camp.

Dan Luker, a 66-year-old veteran who visited Standing Rock in December and returned this month, said that for many who fought in Vietnam or the Middle East it was “healing” to help water protectors.

“This is the right war, right side,” said Luker, a Vietnam vet from Boston. “Finally, it’s the US military coming on to Sioux land to help, for the first time in history, instead of coming on to Sioux land to kill natives.”

Luker said he was prepared to be hit by police ammunition if necessary: “I don’t want to see a twentysomething, thirtysomething untrained person killed by the United States government.”

LaDonna Brave Bull Allard, founder of the Sacred Stone camp and a Standing Rock tribe member, said she welcomed the return of the vets.

“The veterans are going to make sure everything is safe and sound,” she said, adding, “The people on the ground have no protection.”

At Standing Rock, indigenous activists say the mass arrests and police violence have led many of them to develop PTSD, suffering symptoms that many veterans understand well.

“This historical trauma of indigenous communities in this country is very real. It’s tragic,” said Crane. “The military has a lot of the same problems.”

Aubree Peckham, a member of the Mescalero Apache tribe who has been at Standing Rock for months, was in tears on Friday as she described the way indigenous water protectors have bonded with vets.

“We don’t know how to protect ourselves against the tactical weapons they are using,” she said. “They are getting us better prepared.”

Peckham said the affection was mutual: “We are able to talk about PTSD. And they finally feel like they are understood.”

It’s February, 2017, and hurricane and tornado numbers and intensity are steadily dropping coincident with the slow, steady, widespread distribution of simple, inexpensive orgonite devices in the larger environment.

In one media account below you’ll see how they carefully noted that last year’s tornado season was “slightly below average”. That’s very specific, versus saying, more generally, “below average”. Check out how they presented it:

"2016 was an active year for tornadoes across the U.S. However, it was slightly below average compared to other tornado years."

See how the lead sentence, the strongest sentence in the article, starts with saying it was “an active year across the U.S.”? That sounds very different from “was below average across the U.S.”, don’t you think? That’s called SPIN. It’s careful, it’s consistent, it’s practiced - by real people who have names and put their pants on one leg at a time and who CONSPIRE together to do it.

Wikipedia says that the 2016 hurricane season was “above average”, when the number of hurricanes was 7, and the average is 6.3. That would be “slightly above average”, from my perspective, yet they went with a broader, more general description, unlike their Fight Club friends writing the tornado story. Why the different spin, in those two cases?

Everything stated in those previous sentences is correct, I’m just pointing out the careful, consistent spin in support of an agenda.

The folks we’re discussing have worshipped the Storm God all the way back to Babylon, and before, so this is a pet subject for them.

In an article from 2015, NOAA helpfully points out that feverishly-more-accurate monitoring has helped pump up hurricane numbers through the 2000’s, but even the 2016 season’s false augmentation of several of the storms to higher degrees of intensity can’t help the failing agenda. In those cases, the hurricanes were plodding along, then the observer plane went in and – poof – they were magically able to jump the storm up a level. I caught them at it at least two times, last season.

But I can prove my point even with them rigging the numbers.

 

June 1, 2015 – NOAA - Named storms, maximum, 28, minimum, 4, average, 11.7.

Hurricanes: 15 maximum, minimum, 2, average, 6.3

Major Hurricanes: 7 maximum, 0 minimum, average, 2.4

& Landsea et al. (2010) documented a rather large increase in short-lived tropical storms and hurricanes in the last decade, which is likely due to improved monitoring capabilities, that may be influencing the climatological average number of TCs in the Atlantic basin. With the artificial jump in the 2000s in the frequency of short-lived systems, a more realistic estimate of the long-term climatology may be closer to 13 tropical storms and hurricanes per year.

 

May 18, 2016 - Tornado count 2016: Alabama's numbers above average so far

Alabama is nearing the end of its peak severe weather season, and while it may have seemed to be on the quiet side, that's not the case by the numbers.

Alabama has had 43 confirmed tornadoes in 2016, which is "definitely above average" so far, according to Kevin Laws, the science and operations officer at the National Weather Service office in Birmingham.

July 21, 2016 - 2016 Tornado Count Trending Far Below Average – For Now

 

December 15, 2016 - Experts explain why the US saw a low tornado count in 2016

 

January 20, 2017 - U.S. Tornado Count in 2016 Slightly Below the Annual Average

2016 was an active year for tornadoes across the U.S. However, it was slightly below average compared to other tornado years.

 

Wikipedia – February 2017

The 2016 Atlantic hurricane season was the most active and costliest Atlantic hurricane season since 2012 as well as the deadliest since 2008. This was an above average season that produced a total of fifteen named storms, seven hurricanes, and four major hurricanes.

It’s February, 2017, and the great artificial drought has been broken by the slow, steady, widespread and ever-increasing distribution of simple, inexpensive orgonite devices in the vicinity of the weather warfare infrastructure that many still mistakenly presume only carries cell phone traffic and weather radar data.

The story from Oregon that follows gives you the numbers, and notes that they’re new records, but carefully avoids printing the percentages they came in above the old records, as that would be much more impactful, so they hedged by omitting them. It’s okay, I did the math.

2.4 inches to 4.44 inches is 85% higher than the old record.

Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. It’s an epochal increase, a transformation.

1.54 inches to 2.19 inches is 54% higher than the old record.

Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. It’s an epochal increase, a transformation.

In the story from SoCal, they give you the numbers, and note that they’re new records, but carefully avoid printing the percentages they came in above the old records, as that would be much more impactful, so they hedged by omitting them. It’s okay, I did the math.

2.06 inches to 3.97 inches is 93% higher than the old record.

Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. It’s an epochal increase, a transformation.

1.94 inches to 2.78 inches is 43% higher than the old record.

Such records are usually broken by tiny margins. It’s an epochal increase, a transformation.

In the story from Marin, the headline says “Record-breaking rain hits Bay Area in 2017: Here are the numbers.”

What’s hilarious about that is that they tell you the rainfall total, and note it’s the “second-wettest year”, but give you an apples-vs.-oranges annual total to compare it to, and carefully avoid printing any percentages. They hold back the numbers, after saying ‘here are the numbers.’ These guys are spectacular. I mean totally predictable. I guess they hoped the rubes would never notice.

For any brave Coincidence Theorists in the readership, I’d ask, how come the story from just three weeks before composes its headline in the exact same way: “Record-breaking rainfall hits Southern California”?

It hits Marin. It hits SoCal. It’s formulaic, because it’s a formula. A program. It’s programming. It’s a Black Magic spell, and I’m breaking it with White Magic, right here, right now.

On a micro level, this post documents record-shattering rainfall over a three-week period. On a macro level, this thread documents record precipitation over a much longer period, and also features the same propaganda tactics used to hedge against and rebut the record precipitation in both the micro- and macro-level examples.

 

January 23, 2017 – Record-breaking rainfall hits Southern California

A record rainfall of 98.29 mm (3.97 inches) was measured at Long Beach Airport. This broke the old record of 52.32 mm (2.06 inches) set in 1967, and also set an all-time daily rainfall record for Long Beach Airport. The previous all-time record was 95.25 mm (3.75 inches) set on January 4, 1995.

A record rainfall of 70.61 mm (2.78 inches) was set at Los Angeles Airport Sunday. This broke the old record of 49.27 mm (1.94 inches) set in 1983.

Camarillo also broke its record with 70.86 mm (2.79 inches). The previous record of was 26.92 mm (1.06 inches) set in 1997.

 

February 6, 2017 - Oregon - Sunday's rainfall shattered records more than a century old in Newport ...

Sunday marked the wettest Feb. 5 in Newport after 4.44 inches dropped. That shattered the 119-year-old record of 2.4 inches set in 1898.

At Portland International Airport, the rain broke a 71-year-old record for Feb. 5 with 2.19 inches. The previous same-day record was set in 1946 after 1.54 inches of rain fell.

 

February 10, 2017 - Record-breaking rain hits Bay Area in 2017: Here are the numbers

Over in Marin, Kentfield has received 34.95 inches between Jan. 1 and Feb. 9 at 6 a.m.; this is Kentfield's second-wettest year, and the number becomes especially staggering when you consider that average annual rainfall total over the last 30 years is 38.26 inches.

In the story below headlined “About that jump in Bald Eagle nest numbers”, which chronicles record Bald Eagle numbers in Nebraska, the hedging starts with the very first word of the headline, “About”.

I thank the guileful author for the helpful statistic “It is also the fifth consecutive year active nest numbers have been over the century mark”, but that’s just the kernel of truth required by any successful bit of disinformation.

Why does he tell us “the 159 active nests documented in 2016 break a record, the tally is a huge jump from 2015’s record of 118 active nests”, and not go on to tell us the percentage of the increase? That’s because he avoided printing the percentage of the increase, as that would have been much more impactful, so he carefully hedged by omitting it.

But that’s okay, I did the math – it’s a 34% increase. In one year.

Why does that headline say “About that jump in Bald Eagle nest numbers”, versus “About that 34% jump in Bald Eagle nest numbers”? Or “Eagle nests increase by a third in just one year”?

That’s because he’s carefully hedging, pulling his message to the most conservative place possible, without being noticed - except of course by myself.

The earnest Fight Club bird-head goes on to say “for many years, I’ve been thinking about the question – when will we begin to see Bald Eagle nest numbers level off?   The increase cannot go on forever since there is limited real estate in Nebraska.”

You see, for many years, he hasn’t been wondering - or telling everyone on his blog - that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in his lifetime. No, for many years, he’s been wondering when the numbers will plateau, and maybe even go back down

See how he used the negative meaning of the word “wondering”? That’s the Left Hand Path, right there, baby.

See how he pulls your head out of the joy of five-straight years of record eagle numbers, and gets it back where it belongs, mired in negativity?

And then, after spinning it to the negative, he quick puts some sugar on it right after, so you don’t choke on his poison: “However, we do not appear to be at the point yet, not even close.”

As a poker player, I call the his ’tell’ in that sentence “not even close.” Piled on a little, there, Mr. Negativity-Wonderer.

This is a professional bird-lover science-guy, remember.

In the story below headlined “Record number of birds spend winter in Andalucia”, they tell you it’s a record, and that “almost one million” birds have been recorded.

But why did the author run with a general number - “almost one million” - vs. a specific number? And why did they tell us it was “115,000 more than in 2004”, but carefully avoid telling us how many they counted in 2004? That was right before they carefully avoided printing the percentage of the increase, as that would be more impactful, so they carefully hedged by omitting it.

Formulaic, repetitive tactics, documented day in and day out, here in this thread.

Along with the fact that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

 

January 20, 2017 – About that jump in Bald Eagle nest numbers

Word got out yesterday via this press release that Bald Eagle nest numbers in Nebraska broke another record. Like any good press release, this one was concise and stressed the main points, but this blog provides an opportunity to go into a bit more detail. Breaking records has become old hat with Bald Eagle nest numbers and, in fact, this was the third year in a row when we’ve tallied an unprecedented number of active Bald Eagle nests in the state. It is also the fifth consecutive year active nest numbers have been over the century mark. However, not only did the 159 active nests documented in 2016 break a record, the tally is a huge jump from 2015’s record of 118 active nests. What the data are showing us is that Bald Eagle nest numbers in the state are not only continuing to increase, but the increase is increasing.

For many years, I’ve been thinking about the question – when will we begin to see Bald Eagle nest numbers level off?   The increase cannot go on forever since there is limited real estate in Nebraska. However, we do not appear to be at the point yet, not even close.

 

February 12, 2017 - Record number of birds spend winter in Andalucia

BIRDS are wintering in Andalucia in record numbers this year.

Almost one million migrating birds have been recorded in the region’s wetlands, 115,000 more than in 2004, the last peak year.

Extreme weather” is a meme, a broad, ambiguous term used in retreat as the just-slightly-less-broad meme “global warming” is slithered away from. A transition-meme, “global weirding”, is sometimes employed between these two.

In the story below headlined “Extreme Weather Results in Record Waterfowl Numbers’, they tell you about the most waterfowl counted, ever, in history, but carefully neglect to tell you last year’s numbers, or the percentage this year’s record is above last year’s numbers, or the number comprising the previous record, or the percentage this year’s count is above the previous record.

You have to chug pretty far down into the article to see that it’s “extremely cold weather” that they’re attributing the highest-in-history waterfowl count to. That obviously doesn’t do the “hottest year in the entire history of the planet” confidence game any favors, but they solider bravely on, and table the micro-level plausible-deniability excuse that they hope will keep your eye off the larger picture.

If there are more waterfowl in Missouri than ever in recorded history because the cold – oh, wait, I mean ‘extreme weather’ - drove them there, as the science person who studies waterfowl for a living attests, why is a story from the heat of August, just a few months before, headlined “2016 Waterfowl Report: Duck Breeding Numbers Remain High”? And I guess their waterfowl expertise didn’t include reading the story from 2015 headlined “Duck populations are at record highs.” 

Now, I acknowledge that the general populace at this time is in a state where they literally can’t see the great positive changes occurring out their very windows, before their very eyes. And I understand that it’s even more difficult for that same populace to grasp that the folks who hold positions such as these, the one's who get quoted in the newspaper articles, are picked Fight Club insiders. But that’s what I’ve subjectively concluded, and I believe the data supports it, and I’m stating it here for the record.

And, as we’ve discussed many times in this thread, no amount of logic, reason, pie charts or full-motion videos is going to convince someone who’s in the thrall of programming which makes specious plausible-deniability excuses attractive to them. That’s why those feeble excuses work, at all - as the propagandists who put them forth on a daily basis know well.

But I must remind them, and this readership, that propaganda has a lifespan, which is why The Most Important Movie Ever Made, “An Inconvenient Truth”, is never shown on Television, nor in schools. Because it would be like watching the funny old TV show, “Mystery Science Theater 3000”, with the commentary hilarious and trenchant, and the old movies they lampooned, once mainstream and fashionable and now unbelievably, horribly bad.

Please know that I understand that I’m attacking the Religion of a subset of my readership. If they, or the folks at its head putting it forth admitted it was a Religion - vs. a Science, as they claim - I might even lay off. That is until they came to forcibly convert me to their Religion, or demanded money from me to support it.

Meanwhile, over in Georgia, just this past fall, someone hauled in a new world-record catfish. Since Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, and all, it should be surprising enough, on its face, to have a biggest-ever-in-history fish caught at this time. But, as even grade-schoolers would know, such records are usually broken by tiny margins. I give the author credit for correctly saying that “Blue Cat Smashes Old Record”, but am sorry to say that they carefully hedged by omitting the percentage, as printing it would have been more impactful, and so I had to do the math. They say it broke the old record “by more than 22 pounds”, which is more hedging. Why not give the exact number? But, using “22 pounds”, and my percentage calculator, 69.7 minus 22 is 47.7, and 69.7 is 46% higher than the previous record.

As the subconscious twists and thrashes like a gigantic world-record catfish on a line and says “well, then he must have caught the one big old fish that was left!”, the article goes on to say “This is the second record catfish from Lake Oconee within the same week.” The wholly-Complicit, Conspiring author then goes on to pointedly avoid stating the size of the other record fish, or how it compares to the one at the top of the story, or how these two recent records compare to the previous record. Instead, they say ‘click this link to read more’. That’s a technique called “compartmentalization."

If the story read “Blue cat almost 50% larger the previous record - second record in a week - maps against trend of record fish being seen all over the globe”, the message is obviously very different. But you have to come to an Obscure Internet Forum to get such an analysis. Why? And do you think I’m going to be the only person talking about this subject for very much longer?

Happily, there’s no mention of global warming - or weirding - creating giant freak fish, as even these guys have their limits.

Rejoice, revel, witnesseth - it’s February, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime:

Sep 21, 2016 – Georgia - Giant Lake Oconee Blue Cat Smashes Old Record

A new blue catfish record on Lake Oconee was set on Sept. 16 by Wayne Tatum, of Tennille. The monster blue weighed 69-lbs., 7-ozs. and was caught around 10 a.m. Friday morning about a mile up the lake from the dam. The giant fish smashes the old Lake Oconee blue cat record by more than 22 pounds.

This is the second record catfish from Lake Oconee within the same week. A record-breaking flathead was caught Sept. 9. That full story can be viewed at http://www.gon.com.

 

January 12, 2017 - Extreme Weather Results in Record Waterfowl Numbers

JACKSON -The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) completed its early January aerial waterfowl survey this week as part of the nationwide Mid-Winter Waterfowl Survey. Estimates for both mallards and total ducks were the highest observed since MDWFP began using its current survey methods in 2005. The survey estimate of the Mississippi Delta is 1,442,406 total ducks, including 678,235 mallards. The early January aerial waterfowl survey report with waterfowl estimates and distribution maps can be found online at http://www.mdwfp.com/wildlife-.....ey-reports.

The extreme cold weather which swept across the country late last week and remained through early portions of this week likely had a significant impact on the number of birds arriving in Mississippi. "The widespread snowfall and icy conditions that reached into the South over the last several consecutive days forced large numbers of waterfowl to migrate in search of milder weather and available wetland habitat," said Houston Havens, MDWFP Waterfowl Program Coordinator.

“Winston’s greatest pleasure in life was in his work. Most of it was a tedious routine, but included in it there were also jobs so difficult and intricate that you could lose yourself in them as in the depths of a mathematical problem- delicate pieces of forgery in which you had nothing to guide you except your knowledge of the principles of the principles of INGSOC and your estimate of what the party wanted you to say.”

George Orwell, from “1984"

 

September 16, 2015 - Ocean Fish Populations Cut In Half Since The 1970s: Report 

February 2, 2017 - Ukraine increased exports of fish by 39% in 2016

 

A story below is headlined “Ukraine increased exports of fish by 39% in 2016”. That’s clear, and informative, and truthful, and gives a summary of the article in one line, which is what a headline is supposed to be. And it certainly doesn’t do the “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying” confidence game any favors.

Even while stating the truth, it's hedging, in that article goes to say "While the overall increase in exports amounts to 39% for some product groups revenues from shipments abroad increased significantly. Thus, the sale of fresh and chilled fish - 9.6 times, to $ 1.5 million..."

So even that truthful headline buries the much-more impactful percentage below. Increased 9.6 times? They phrased it that way because “times” is less impactful than “percent”. Increased nine hundred...freaking...percent. Yeah, I know, it’s hard for even me to get my head around.

Another article below is headlined “Vietnam expects healthy growth for seafood exports in 2017”. While that’s technically correct, they’ve carefully avoided printing the percentage increase in the headline, as that would have been more impactful, so they hedged by omitting it. It’s a five percent increase, in one year. And it certainly doesn’t do the “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying” confidence game any favors.

Another article below, from Iran, is headlined “Seafood Exports to Reach $400mn’s”. While that’s technically correct, they’ve carefully avoided printing the percentage increase in the headline, as that would have been more impactful, so they hedged by omitting it. It’s a fourteen percent increase, in one year. And it certainly doesn’t do the “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying” confidence game any favors.

That same article goes on to say that “Shrimp exports are expected to reach 14,000 tons, 2,000 tons more than last year.” While that’s also technically correct, they gave you the numbers, but carefully avoided printing the percentage increase, as that would have been more impactful, so they hedged by omitting it. I had to do the math – it’s sixteen percent. And, by the way, the one percentage they did provide in the article was the smaller one.

So they serially avoid using the percentage, if printing it hurts their agenda. But they include a big, dramatic, and fake percentage in the headline, here, in support of that same agenda: "Ocean Fish Populations Cut In Half Since The 1970s."

Hilariously, the article below that’s headlined "Dominican fishing exports to expand in 2017 Drigo says” doesn’t contain any data at all. Beyond “to expand."

By the book, baby, by the book. Hard as it is for many to conceive, it’s tradecraft...part of what they like to call the ‘Intelligence’ trade.  It’s also called “neurolinguistic programming” - not that I was taught that descriptor at any point during my Liberal Arts education as an English major.

The programming that’s led to the populace’s general inability to discern the formulaic pattern of propaganda in our Media has been put in place over time, in a repetitive way. It’s programming. It works at a subconscious level, so that your conscious mind never gets to the things we’re talking about here in this post, here in this thread.

So I’m breaking it down the same way, repetitively. But Truth is stronger than Lies. White magic trumps Black, every time, which is why the folks who practice the latter are so secretive, why they HIDE. “Occult” means “hidden”.

It’s February, 2017, and Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime:

 

January 5, 2017 – Dominican fishing exports to expand in 2017 Drigo says – Dominica ...

 

February 2, 2017 - Ukraine increased exports of fish by 39% in 2016

While the overall increase in exports amounts to 39% for some product groups revenues from shipments abroad increased significantly. Thus, the sale of fresh and chilled fish - 9.6 times, to $ 1.5 million, crustaceans - 4.2 times, to $ 4.4 million, frozen fish - 2.6 times, to $ 641 thousand, and shellfish - 2.4 times, to $ 684 thousand. Eхport reduction has not occurred on any of the positions.

 

February 2, 2017 – Vietnam expects healthy growth for seafood exports in 2017 ...

The value of Vietnam's seafood exports is expected to increase by 5 percent this year to around USD 7.5 billion

 

February 6, 2017 – Seafood Exports to Reach $400mn’s

Iran’s seafood export is estimated to reach $400 million this year, which will register a 14% rise compared with last year, according to the head of Iran’s Fisheries Organization.

“Shrimp exports are expected to reach 14,000 tons, 2,000 tons more than last year,” Hassan Salehi was also quoted as saying by IRNA.

October 21, 2015 - Maine Lobster Boom Continues - numbers up 74% from 10 years ago.

May 2, 2016 – Lobster fishing to be restricted in bid to save population

September 23, 2016 – Maine’s lobster industry is on pace for its best year ever

January 28, 2017 – Value of Maine lobster exports to China on pace to triple for 2016

 

The lobster stories below sweat feverishly to assure you that it’s lobster “value” that’s increasing, that it’s the “revenue”. And it is. But they won’t talk about the numbers of lobsters.

The growth in the Chinese market has been remarkable. In 2010, Maine exported just $100,000 worth of lobsters to China. Last year, Maine sold $20 million in lobsters to China and another $5.8 million to Hong Kong.”

You’ll notice that they won’t tell how how many lobsters it was, exactly. Instead, they gave you the financial numbers, and as a bonus carefully omitted the percentage of the increase, as providing it would have been much more impactful.

If 100,000 to a 200,000 is a one hundred percent increase, What is it to twenty million? My percentage calculator says 20,000%. I think what’s instructive, here, is that the booming and the burgeoning are increasing in a 1, 2, 4, 8 kind of way. And the propaganda’s staying the same. So a breaking point is going to come, sooner than later - and it’s not the burgeoning or the booming that’s going to be breaking.

So, what’s the future hold?

“Value of Maine lobster exports to China on pace to triple for 2016”

Within that context, where does a sentence like “Lobster fishing to be restricted in bid to save population” come in? Or “Changing ecosystem, disease challenge lobster industry”?

Complete and utter bullshit. Threadbare propaganda. Lies so titanic that they beggar the imagination. But such are the times in which we live.

The cross-hair’s can be easily fixed on just whom is spewing the complete and utter bullshit: “Scientists, lobstermen disagree on state of fishery.”

You’re going to have to use your personal discernment to conclude if it’s the scientists or the lobstermen who are trying to take you for a ride.

The propaganda is formulaic and repetitive. Propaganda has a lifespan. The great, epochal positive changes documented here are increasing in speed and magnitude.

What do you think is going to happen to the propagandists, and when?

It’s an amazing time to be alive, don’t you think?

My wife had business in Washington, D.C. yesterday, so I did some sightseeing, hadn’t been there since I was a child. I got the car washed just outside Georgetown, and as I’m waiting for the car, this priest walks by me, two feet from me. I see him coming, he’s pale, his hair’s kind of greasy, he’s talking to himself. Did not look at me or make eye contact with me, which is unusual, as I was looking directly at him, and he walked right toward me and by me.

As he goes past, I see he’s got his hands clasped behind his back. The left hand, yes, the left hand is holding the “il cornuto” devil’s-horns sign. You can’t make this shit up. I boosted him as his back was to me, walking away. He stopped making the sign with his left hand.

Afterward, I thought “ah, Georgetown…he was surely a Jesuit.” As I drove through Georgetown, I was stunned by how incredibly, insanely creepy it was, how creepy many of the people were. There’s a reason they filmed “the Exorcist” there.

Chevy Chase? Not totally creepy. Bethesda? Weird enough, but not totally creepy. Georgetown? Heart of Darkness. Like it felt when I was in downtown Hollywood.

I went to the Air and Space museum, which I loved as a kid. The security people didn’t take a second look at the Harmonic Protector I put in the scanner tray with my wallet and phone.

 

“Among the trees nearby, a horn rang out....

AWAKE! FEAR! FIRE! FOES! AWAKE!

Fatty Bolger had not been idle. As soon as he saw the dark shapes creep from the garden, he knew that he must run for it, or perish. And run he did, out of the back door, through the garden, and over the fields. When he reached the nearest house, more than a mile away, he collapsed on the doorstep. 'No, no, no!' he was crying. 'No, not me! I haven't got it!' It was some time before anyone could make out what he was babbling about. At last they got the idea that enemies were in Buckland, some strange invasion from the Old Forest. And then they lost no more time.

FEAR! FIRE! FOES!

The Brandybucks were blowing the Horn-call of Buckland, that had not been sounded for a hundred years, not since the white wolves came in the Fell Winter, when the Brandywine was frozen over.”

J.R.R. Tolkein, from “The Fellowship of the Ring

 

The few control the many via pyramidally-constructed organizations in which fair-seeming, nattily-suited sociopaths at the top of those pyramids fleece wholly-credulous rubes lower down.

The few I’m discussing are all genetically-related, the same twisted, literally Death-worshipping families ruling things on this globe all the way back to Babylon, and before. It’s a great network for them, but they can’t scale it, via a recruiting drive of some kind, which is why a One World Government is so important to them.

I’ve included numerous examples of succession movements below.

All of their games are collapsing, around the globe, at once, and they have no new, fresh tactics to dig out of the sand hole on the beach that’s collapsing in on them.

The recent flurry of heavy-handed, out-in-the-open attacks on members of this forum tells me intellectually, and emotionally, that they’re losing control of the game, and fast. Christine, in prison? Her photo and an online appeal for money would shock many around the globe into awareness.

Offing Don Croft in a public way (vs. sneaky, private poisoning, as they just did with Carol, and have done to the Crofts previously numerous times) would shock many around the globe into awareness. Don just alluded to a murder threat in another thread here on the forum.

I’m blowing the horn call of Buckland. I’ve previously sent what money I can to help Christine, and will send more as I am able. If you are reading this and have not done so already, please consider getting involved, here and now, because someone just like you and me is doing hard time for distributing $3 pieces of metal, resin and crystal. Dancan’s paypal account is dancanomollo2016@yahoo.com, or was as of February 7. And if you cannot, the boosts you send to Christine and her captors cost you nothing.

I just had thought. I will ride into the camp of one of the Orgonite forums coincidentally favored by the search engines and ask if I can post a request for assistance to Christine. My forum name was “Brother Maynard”, there, back in the day, 2005 or so, before I got booted for documenting controlled-opposition-troll tactics. If no one here objects, I will do so, and report back. My post would be under the name “Jeff Miller."

It’s illegal, verboten, forbidden, to talk about the number of fish being caught these days. It took me about 10 minutes to grab the stories I’ve appended below – while watching golf on TV – and it’s going to take me an hour to chronical the amazing avoidance of talking about the numbers of fish being landed. Lots and lots of yapping about money, and increased demand, and a blatant blackout on fish numbers.

And the few times the numbers do get printed, it’s jaw-dropping.

The story from Norway from January, 2017 goes on for one, two, three paragraphs, stressing how it’s increased demand, and wider markets, and rising prices. Buried, way down in paragraph four, “He noted that production in 2017 will be a bit higher than in 2016, “but the increase will be so little that the market isn’t fully satisfied.”

A bit” hedges, and “the increase will be so little”, blah, blah, is a negative-spin tail-off. He tells you 2016 was a record, but takes care to not tell you that 2016 was up 26% over 2015 - and was also a record.

The story from Sri Lanka from just last month is headlined “Income generated from fish exports sees a record increase.” See, it’s income. The story talks about the record amount of profit in the next paragraph, and there, buried down in the third paragraph, are the income numbers. You’ll notice they took care to not print the percentage, as printing it would have been more impactful, so I had to do the math. Income earned is up 6%.

Hard as it was to get them to cough up even income numbers, what about the volume of the catch? You’ll never know, they refused to print anything about the volume of the catch, the numbers of fish caught, at all. It’s what’s called a “News Blackout”.

In the story from this month from Vietnam, they headline the story “Fish exports to China forecasted to reach USD 1 Billion in 2017”. That’s hedging, in that they wait until the article itself to tell you it’s a record. Two more nattering, misleading paragraphs about increased demand, and then they cought it up, buried at the very bottom, is an actual metric: “Last year, China’s shrimp imports from Vietnam, mostly unprocessed, increased by 23 percent to USD 431 million.”

Obviously, if demand is increasing, it’s being supplied via increased catches. Which goes seriously off message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all, hence it being forbidden to talk about it.

And then there’s another crushing metric about the actual production: China also surpassed the EU to become Vietnam’s second biggest buyer of pangasius catfish with total imports of USD 305 million, a 90-percent increase from 2015.”

The story says China "has transformed from the world's top producer and exporter of seafood to the world's biggest market for seafood in 2016.” I know the Chinese are rich, and all, but I’m going to need to research this one and get back to you. What, they just gave up fishing, they’re so rich? My guess would be they are importing more because imported fish is available even cheaper than if they went after it themselves, which still seems kind of crazy. Fish abundance is up across the globe. Perhaps it is that China’s got the gigantic population and the cashflow, hence “world’s biggest market for seafood”, and it’s exports are down because everyone else is getting them from closer by, like, you know, Norway. 

In the recent story from the U.K. headlined “Brixham fishing record blown out of the water”, they talk about the amount of money the record catch was worth. They tell you the numbers, 68,000, up to the new record, 75,000, but took care to omit the percentage, as printing it would have been more impactful. So I had to do the math. It’s 10.2% above the old record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins, and to see one occur when Poor Mother Gaia is Dying is certainly an eye-opener.

Then the author blows a bunch of chaff, like this: “Skipper Patrick Birley landed more than 20 tons of fish, catching 29 different species including Dover sole, monkfish, lemon sole, turbot, brill, plaice, pollock, ray and octopus.”

While it does testify to the booming health of the marine environment, it’s placed there so you think “Oh, he’s just a busily fishing beaver, THAT’S why it’s a record!”

And finally, at last, buried way down at the bottom, a single metric about the amount of fish:

"But skipper Paddy Birley came in with 250 boxes of cuttlefish – double the amount you would normally get."

It’s tortuous, going through this example by example, I know.

He caught double the amount of cuttlefish as usual not because the Chinese are eating more cuttlefish, - which I have not doubt that they are - but because Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in that captain, nor your, my lifetimes.

October 25, 2016 – Norwegian seafood exports up a record 26% in 2016

 

January 3, 2017 - Norway’s seafood industry, especially salmon, is starting the New Year off with even more record high prices and strong demand. Salmon prices are also expected to rise by another 10 percent in the first half of this year, and the industry is considered one of the country’s most secure.

Norway sells its seafood worldwide, now in Iran as well, where Fisheries Minister Per Sandberg promoted Norwegian salmon last fall.

“It looks like 2017 will be even better than our record year in 2016,” Piotr C Wingaard, sales director for Fish Pool, told newspaper Dagens Næringsliv (DN) this week. Fish Pool sells salmon in the spot market, where the price for Norwegian salmon is NOK 72 per kilo, much higher than the earlier record prices set in 2016. He thinks the “salmon party” will continue through next year at least.

He noted that production in 2017 will be a bit higher than in 2016, “but the increase will be so little that the market isn’t fully satisfied.

February 3, 2017- Vietnam – Fish exports to China forecasted to reach USD 1 Billion in 2017

The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) forecast that Chinese seafood imports will set a record high of more than USD1 billion in 2017.

China is emerging as a top buyer of Vietnamese seafood, just behind the U.S., the European Union and Japan, as many consumers can now afford to add more seafood in their daily meals.

Currently, China is buying more from other countries, according to FAO's statistics, while the body also stated that the country has transformed from the world's top producer and exporter of seafood to the world's biggest market for seafood in 2016.

Last year, China’s shrimp imports from Vietnam, mostly unprocessed, increased by 23 percent to USD 431 million.

China also surpassed the EU to become Vietnam’s second biggest buyer of pangasius catfish with total imports of USD 305 million, a 90-percent increase from 2015.

February 15, 2017 – U.K. -Brixham fishing record blown out of the water

BRIXHAM'S record for a boat landing was smashed on Wednesday morning when a vessel returned from a week at sea with just over £75,000 of fish.

The boat William of Ladram blew the previous record for the earnings of an individual boat at Brixham Trawler Agents, which stood at £68,000, out of the water by grossing £75,001.76 – of which £40,000 was cuttlefish.

Skipper Patrick Birley landed more than 20 tons of fish, catching 29 different species including Dover sole, monkfish, lemon sole, turbot, brill, plaice, pollock, ray and octopus.

"You tend to make £30,000 to £40,000 for a week at sea at this time of year," said Barry.

"But skipper Paddy Birley came in with 250 boxes of cuttlefish – double the amount you would normally get."
