The story that follows, from just two months ago, supports the thesis that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

The headline reads “Record-breaking catfish caught on Lake LBJ”. As you probably know, “record” means “most ever, in history”. So it’s surprising on its face to read of the biggest fish ever caught, in history, when Poor Mother Gaia is dying, and all, and we’re suffering through the hottest year in the history of planet Earth.

But let’s put that aside. As you know, such records are usually broken by tiny margins.

“When Webb took the fish to Inks Lake State Park for an official weigh-in, the monster catfish came in at a whopping 71.4 pounds! The fish was also 51.75 inches long and had a 33-inch girth. “Big blue” crushed the previous lake record of 40 pounds.”

Just look at the sumbitch:

While I credit them for correctly stating that this fish “crushed” the previous record, I must take them to task for carefully avoiding printing the percentage of the new record over the old, because it would have been more impactful, and gone off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all.

So I had to do the math. It’s 78% higher than the previous record.

That’s impactful to read, isn’t it? That’s why the percentage was carefully omitted, as part of a larger pattern that you read about literally daily here on this thread.

Do you think that hedging and downplaying is a very effective long-term strategy against the epochal positive changes that we’re seeing and experiencing across the globe at this time?

I don’t, either – it’s just that it’s all they’ve got. So enjoy with me as we watch them falter, and wither, and blow away.

We’re awakening to the reality that Nature’s ills have been, at their basis, Death-energy-based, vs. the more mechanistic theses put forth by the folks distributing the Death energy. With those plausible-deniability theses accepted by everyone, including myself, up until quite recently.

Mechanistic, 3-D impactors of course exist, and are at play. It’s just the big driver, the main driver, is ETHERIC, which is why the folks doing the down-low destroying wanted to make sure you’d keep affirming “tut-tut, there’s no such thing as the Ether!”, and donating to Greenpeace, and such and such.

Greenpeace, you know, as in green, as in “In this Egyptian painting, Osiris is painted green. In ancient Egypt, green represented protection and Osiris was called "the great green.  

706px-osiris-tomb-of-nefertari.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In ancient Egypt Orion was actually the giant green-skinned god Osiris.”

 

Green, you know, the devil’s color:

In the 15th century, the devil was green, as depicted by Michael Pacher in this Saint Wolfgang panel (1471-1475, Alte Pinakothek, Munich). Medieval poets such as Chaucer also drew connections between the color green and the devil. In his Friar’s tale, the devil came dressed in green.”

You’ve been had once again, I’m afraid, by the Osiris Cult, the barely-closeted, genetically-related cult of human-sacrificing, cannibal Death-worshippers who’ve been running things on this globe all the way back to Babylon, and before. The “jolly green giant” on your package of vegetables is Osiris. They figured the rubes would never notice.

And don’t you think the green shoe with his name on it is aggressive, and demeaning?

It’s not like these guys aren’t right up front about what they’re doing. It’s our sleepy ensheepledness that’s the problem, which is why I’m here turning the Klieg lights on every day, several times per day.

My job search is going well. You’d think these guys would let me get back to work as me with too much time on my hands is a problem for them, as you can see. I’ve had the extra time to put cool pictures in, and work on fonts, and stuff - things that make the White Magic I’m making that much more powerful.

It’s the power of Truth, the power of Utterance.

 

 

 

 

January 3, 2017 - Record-breaking catfish caught on Lake LBJ

LAKE LBJ, Texas (KXAN) — An avid Hill Country angler caught one for the record books last week.

On Dec. 22, Tim Webb was fishing from the bank of Lake LBJ when he caught what appeared to be a catfish, but this catfish was like none other. Using his rod and reel, Webb was able to get the big fish out of the water.

Since the sun was already setting, Webb tied the fish up along the boat dock with a rope and fish stringer. He jokingly says he spent the night with “big blue.” The following morning, the stringer hook was broken and the rope was barely hanging on, but the fish was still alive.

When Webb took the fish to Inks Lake State Park for an official weigh-in, the monster catfish came in at a whopping 71.4 pounds! The fish was also 51.75 inches long and had a 33-inch girth. “Big blue” crushed the previous lake record of 40 pounds.

For some perspective, the fish was almost as long as Webb is tall (he’s 6 feet 3 inches tall).

After the fish was thoroughly documented, it was released back into Lake LBJ. If you’re out swimming at Lake LBJ and see this guy next to you, it is no Loch Ness.

“He walked on, energy in his stride, a grim smile on his face. Alone in the dark. Invincible."

Lee Child, from “The Hard Way”, 2006

 

Child is referring to Jack Reacher, the protagonist of the novel. In the recent movie (filmed in Pittsburgh!), the character James Barr says, of Reacher, "There's this guy. He's a kind of cop, at least he used to be. He doesn't care about proof, he doesn't care about the law, he only cares about what's right. He knows what I did. You can't protect me. No one can.” And he weeps while he’s saying it - not realizing that Reacher has already returned, and exonerated him, because Barr, unbeknownst to himself, had been framed

Please don’t consider that I think myself the equal of the characters I quote in my threads. It’s more like a child with sports heroes. They are role models, inspirations, exemplars. And they are thought forms, which have power. The name of this forum is Etheric Warriors.

I’m trying to keep myself pumped up to keep bringing it against these guys, forever. I’ve experienced a lot of attacks, a lot of assaults since I took up this, er, line of work. But, happily, most of them have been Etheric. And the physical ones had no effect whatsoever, dumbfounding both the people who executed them, and myself.

It only took me about twenty minutes to collect the eight stories below, all of which support my thesis that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

Casting aside the possibility that I’m some sort of superhuman (Reacher-esque!) researcher, I think it’s easy to see that an expansion of this investigative effort to other countries, other languages would support, versus detract from my thesis. Which thesis refutes our State Religion, which holds that “Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed By the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind.”

What’s causing the revival, the resurgence? Certainly, the breaking of the great artificial drought 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 carry cell phone traffic and weather radar data is playing a significant role.

And, yes, mechanical, 3D drivers such as habitat conservation, endangered species protections, and the like, are having real, actual positive impacts.

But I think there’s another factor at play, bringing a Gyrfalcon to New Jersey for the first time in 27 years. “Boyle characterized the dynamic raptor, roughly the size of a female red-tailed hawk, as “an Arctic rarity that seldom comes this far south anymore.”

Wait, I thought the arctic was a warm, watery, collapsing mess, and that we were in the middle of the hottest year in the history of planet Earth? To maintain current programming levels, use the meme term “global weirding!” and stop reading immediately.

Rare November snow in Tokyo, the first since 1962.”

Wait, I thought we were in the middle of the hottest year in the history of planet Earth? To maintain current programming levels, narrow your eyes and affirm bitterly “yeah, but that’s there,” and stop reading immediately.

I think there’s another factor at play, bringing an animal called the Fisher back to Iowa after an absence of 150 years. Let’s check in with the guys who supposedly love Nature, nay, are on the Nature payroll, and who study it way more than I do:

The Minnesota DNR reports that fishers are expanding into southeast Minnesota, which is likely where this one came from,” the DNR said on Facebook. “We don't know right now if fishers will reestablish themselves in Iowa, but it's certainly interesting!”

Posturing, ridiculously, As if the fisher had run to Iowa from Minnesota, and was about to run back - versus living in Iowa. He says “interesting”, which is what you say when you hear something you don’t like, but are trying to be polite. And he’s hedging: “we don’t know right now if fishers will reestablish themselves in Iowa”. Wouldn’t you think someone who loves them some Nature would say something like “this is just a great inspiration, seeing species return like this. And it’s taking place all over the globe, I read seven other accounts like it just this morning, over coffee”?

I’m drinking my coffee, by the way.

And I think it’s just a great inspiration, seeing species return like this. And it’s taking place all over the globe, I read seven other accounts like it just this morning, over coffee.

He can’t swerve from the Fight Club party line, you see.

Here are some other professionally-employed Nature lovers, talking about a Jaguar sighting in Arizona:

Officials say they can't tell the jaguar's gender or age from the photo. The two other jaguars that have been recently spotted were both male, and Arizona Game and Fish officials have said a female jaguar hasn't been spotted in decades.

Lotta downplaying and pessimism, there. You’d think he’d say “this is just a great inspiration, seeing species return like this. And it’s taking place all over the globe, I read seven other accounts like it just this morning, over coffee.” On the side, bet you ten bucks that an actual Jaguar lover will later confirm it’s a female.

He can’t swerve from the Fight Club party line, you see.

If there was Some Big Conspiracy, you couldn’t keep it a secret - someone would notice, someone would speak up.”

Yes, that’s true! Feel free to post this on a cork board at work, if you like.

There are physical, 3D drivers to species degradation, and diminution, and also to their revival and recovery. But I believe there’s an Etheric element to it, as well, and that the discovery and nailing down of that truth is going to be what at last and forever undoes the foul parasites who’ve ruled us from the shadows on this globe all the way back to Babylon and before.

With everyone (except for the parasites, of course) collectively agreeing that surreptitiously collecting, concentrating and distributing Death energy for the purpose of the general degredation of life on Earth is a very bad thing, and shouldn’t be allowed, anymore. In the same way we all agreed one should not and will not be allowed to own slaves.

We’re discussing the same perpetrators in both cases, by the way.

How do you think they feel, reading these posts in their secret meeting rooms, right now? There aren’t that many of them. But they’re sick. Bumming. Boiling mad. Hysterical. Desperate. Like the losers that they are.

And that’s healthy, because the hardest part of solving a problem is realizing that you have one.

We’ve made the bottom turn, these guys are done.

But don’t you dare stop gifting! And spreading the word.

 

November 21, 2016 – Rare November snow in Tokyo, the first since 1962

 

January 31, 2017 – Rare sighting in North Jersey: world's largest falcon

For New Jersey birders, it was the biggest news since a pink-footed goose made its Garden State debut in Washington Township six years ago. Since Jan. 21, a rare gyrfalcon – the largest falcon in the world – has been appearing almost daily at the State Line Lookout in Alpine.

“The last time you had a chance of seeing a gyrfalcon in New Jersey was 27 years ago in Sandy Hook, so this is a pretty big deal,” said Bill Boyle, author of “The Birds of New Jersey” and a leading expert on state birds. “The last one seen in Bergen County was in March 1950, in East Rutherford.”

According to Boyle, there have only been 19 previous confirmed sightings of a gyrfalcon ever in New Jersey, and half of those were in the 1970s and 1980s. Although one was seen two years ago at Sandy Hook, it was a brief fly-by.

Boyle characterized the dynamic raptor, roughly the size of a female red-tailed hawk, as “an Arctic rarity that seldom comes this far south anymore.”

Judy Cinquina of Upper Saddle River saw the gyrfalcon fly across the Hudson on Friday but returned Monday in hopes of a better look: “You usually have to go to Alaska to see it – or Siberia or the top of the world.”

 

February 5, 2017 – Rare frog, not seen since 1962, discovered in Zimbabwe

Robert Hopkins, a researcher at the natural history museum in Bulawayo city, said his team had found four specimens of the frog in its known habitat of Chimanimani, a mountainous area in the east.

The team found the first male specimen on Dec. 3 after following an animal call that they had not heard before, Hopkins said. They then discovered another two males and a female. Hopkins said he been looking for the cave squeaker for eight years.

 

February 13, 2017 – U.K. - A rare sight: Otter spotted in Brayford Pool in Lincoln

Once on the brink of extinction, otters have reappeared in places where they have not been seen since the industrial revolution.

 

February 14, 2017 – Rare snake seen alive for the first time in over six decades

When scientists in Brazil came face to face with a Cropan's boa recently, it wasn't just any old snake sighting. That's because this species hasn't been caught alive since 1953.

 

February 15, 2017 – SPOTTED: Rare carnivorous mammal not seen since 1800s caught on camera

Iowa's department of natural resources confirms the sighting of a mammal not seen in about 150 years

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources is confirming the sighting of a mammal not seen in Iowa in about 150 years.

DNR officials said a trail camera photo of a fisher was taken by Ryan Cross in November in Allamakee County.

“The Minnesota DNR reports that fishers are expanding into southeast Minnesota, which is likely where this one came from,” the DNR said on Facebook. “We don't know right now if fishers will reestablish themselves in Iowa, but it's certainly interesting!

The fisher is a carnivore and a cousin to the weasel, otter and mink, and they are known for their fierceness.

 

March 2, 2017 – Agency reports rare jaguar sighting in mountains of Arizona

PHOENIX (AP) — Wildlife officials say they have evidence of a rare jaguar sighting in the United States, giving conservationists hope that the endangered cat is re-establishing itself here.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released a photo Thursday from a trail camera that was taken in November and recently retrieved.

It shows the spotted cat wandering through the Dos Cabezas Mountains in Arizona about 60 miles north of the U.S.-Mexico border. Fish and Wildlife spokesman Jeff Humphrey says it's the farthest north of the border that a jaguar has been seen in decades.

"The significance is that we're getting a clearer understanding of where jaguars occur in the borderline area," Humphrey said. It's been decades since a jaguar was spotted in that mountain range, he said.

Officials say they can't tell the jaguar's gender or age from the photo. The two other jaguars that have been recently spotted were both male, and Arizona Game and Fish officials have said a female jaguar hasn't been spotted in decades.

This just in from Correspondent Carlos – thanks, Carlos – it’s right up my alley, an article headlined “This American-Made Washing Machine Is So Good It's Got a Cult Following”. He said “it may be an ad, but if it is, it’s a good one.”

It appears to be Amazon-filler, but, whatever, it’s a good one.

The great thing that the informercial tells us is that “people who have discovered the brand are big fans of the durability and cost-effectiveness of its washing machines… Millennial homeowners in particular have shown a willingness to pay more for what they perceive as better-quality products…

Despite the hedging qualifier that is the word “perceive”, that statement documents an awakened and awakening populace. Perceive? No...difference in quality levels is not a matter of opinion, nor is it a point-of-view. it’s a matter of fact. Here, you can see Consumer Reports - who purports to study such things for a living - saying “Speed Queen top-loaders are among the more reliable washer brands.”  So, hey, their perception agrees with the Millenials!

But why didn’t they, or the article state which brand was, in fact, the most reliable, or let the reader know where Speed Queen stands in that list? Probably because the sentence “is among the more reliable” is the author’s diabolical, Left Hand Path way to invert it, to hide the fact that they won it all. Because the ranking "number one" would be, technically, “among the more reliable”. Before you call me crazy, let me note that, in a survey of more than 115,000 Consumer Reports subscribers, "Readers gave both models nearly perfect reviews.” And why, if the author is not hedging, didn’t they say "among the most reliable?"

have shownwillingness to pay more" is another hedging layer. They either, A: paid more, or, B: showed a willingness to pay more...stopping just short of paying more. Why the bizarre hedging? Followed immediately by the second hedge, “perceive”? “Have shown a willingness" means they did it in the past, but might not do it in the future.

Let’s look at them in order from greatest directness, to greatest hedging (the latter being the one they ran with):

Millennials are paying more for quality. Millennials are showing a willingness to pay more for quality. Millennials have shown a willingness to pay more for quality. Millennials have shown a willingness to pay more for what they perceive to be quality.

Here’s more: "Speed Queen spokesman Randy Radtke says sales of the company's home washing machines have been growing lately, partly due to people’s discontent with the way other brands grow mold or conk out after a few years.” It’s important to note that it’s not a quote, but is rather a paraphrasing of what Randy said. And “partly” hedges, as if there are other drivers than the two that are listed. And a chaff-driver, “the way other brands grow mold”, is thrown before the actual driver, “conk out after a few years”, is listed. "Yeah, Speed Queen sales are through the roof because of our fifty year old anti mold technology. That’s our number-one sales driver!” And “conk out” is cute, and playful, the softest way humanly possible to say saying something like “lower-quality machines purpose-built not to last.” My statement is very strong, but I’m exaggerating so you get the point.

I didn’t even catch this stuff in the first pass. And it’s beyond tiresome to wade through it. However it’s importance lies in the fact that it’s demonstrably careful, and studious, part of a Black art practiced in a methodological way down over time. But let’s get back to the good news, the super-awesome Speed Queen, which Millenials have shown a willingness to pay more for, because they perceive it to be of higher quality:

You’re paying for metal instead of plastic. We could build a cheaper machine, but you’re buying a metal product with a metal tub, metal transmission and a lot of engineering behind it,”

The whole world was basically sane, or certainly much saner, not even two, or three generations ago. Quality products, quality clothing, quality cars, produced, expected, by everyone.

Somehow my parent’s generation got swindled into the “new car every year” insanity. Where, every year, it looked a little different, was a little flashier, had some new geegaw or gimcrack - and was of slightly lower quality than the year before. I recently bought a New Old Stock fuel pump for my 1965 Buick, and it was $35. Mint in original box. It’s remarkably heavy, and simple, and the metal is of a quality you don’t see anymore, and it’s painted beautifully. I just opened a search engine and looked for “2017 Buick Fuel Pump.” $250 to $400. Ten times the expense, for wildly inferior quality.

I inherited my late stepdad’s stereo equipment, that he bought new in 1962. It was as good as you could get, then. It’s refurbishment cost me significantly less than you’d pay for a new unit with similar fidelity, and it will now run for me for another fifty years, or the rest of my life. And it’s incredibly beautiful - web pic of the receiver is attached. And it’s got established worth, value, which the new unit does not.

The article says “Best washer I have bought in 50 years,” Notice the 50-years data point?

When I was very young, I remember we got rid of his system’s funny-looking turntable for a new, fashionable one. Now that I know what’s up, I know that what we gave to Goodwill was an incredible gold-tone Empire turntable, worth five hundred dollars or more today. I’ve attached a picture of one - would you take it to Goodwill because it looked weird, so you could "Keep Up with the Joneses?” So that’s another data point about people waking up, who were previously asleep, myself included. In my defense, I was nine.

Once I heard the old equipment running on all cylinders, I pitched a musician friend of mine on the vintage Hi-Fi thing. He said “you are being sentimental, you are being played, it’s not possible, it’s not Correct.” I said “come to my house.” He listened, for less than one minute, and said “get me one of those.” And I did. And it will last him the rest of his life.

You know how they say “screw me twice, shame on me”? We can buy whatever we want, whenever we want. They can lead us to the trough, but they can’t make us drink. We’re recovering out wits, coming to our senses. Wal-Mart’s having trouble because people are realizing that paying forty cents less to buy underwear gets you underwear with the thickness of tissue paper made out of spun petroleum, and might not be worth destroying your Civil War-era downtown over. People are realizing that Wal-Mart’s motto, “Save Money, Live Better”, is a brazen, baldfaced lie. One doesn’t save money by cheaping out on the basics. One saves money by tightening one’s belt, by fixing the washer one has, by not by buying a shiny new pressed-petroleum belt when the old one got a little tatty. And buying cheaper, crappier stuff in no way will ever make you feel like you are “living better”.

So, in addition to drinking less, smoking less, using fewer drugs and killing one another less, the Millenials have discovered “buy right, or buy twice.” How long before they realize that a new belt, gasket and motor for that completely-mechanical 1950’s washer their neighbor is literally giving away, whose enamel is still perfect, is a hundred bucks, or call it two hundred? Remember, they’re forking over $1,500 for the admittedly-sweet new washer. It’s twenty grand, or forty, for the disposable plastic car - the one that literally looks like a turd, and, as a secret bonus, whose front and rear fascia integrate fearsome Death-tiki images. Or five or ten grand for the sweet Buick everyone smiles at and gives the thumb’s up to.

I think you can see how the Bad Guys' stack is getting smaller and smaller, every hand of cards that goes around. And who’s going to win this poker game, much sooner than later.

 

March 2, 2017 - This American-Made Washing Machine Is So Good It's Got a Cult Following

Washing machines probably aren’t what come to mind when you think of products with devoted cult followings. But one company that cranks out highly praised industrial machines for laundromats, apartment buildings and hospitals also makes units designed to go in your laundry room — and many owners can't stop raving about them.

Speed Queen is a Wisconsin-based brand — and yes, they build all of their washers here in the U.S. of A. — that’s been around for 100 years, but don’t feel bad if you’ve never heard of them. They don’t run any national advertisements, and you won’t catch one of their washers in a big-box store.

But people who have discovered the brand are big fans of the durability and cost-effectiveness of its washing machines. Speed Queen spokesman Randy Radtke says sales of the company's home washing machines have been growing lately, partly due to people’s discontent with the way other brands grow mold or conk out after a few years. Millennial homeowners in particular have shown a willingness to pay more for what they perceive as better-quality products, including household appliances. Speed Queen buyers also like that the machines don’t have a lot of complicated parts.

Radtke says Speed Queen’s most popular in-home model is the mechanical-control AWN432. Like all Speed Queen products, this one isn't available in big-box home-improvement or electronics stores; the brand uses independent dealers (often, mom-and-pop shops) to sell their washers and dryers instead. It can also be purchased through Amazon, starting at a little under $900. “People just like that built-to-last mechanical control,” Radtke says. “We’re seeing that people gravitate to our brand of late after going through one or two sets of laundry equipment.

But don’t just take his word for it. “ This is the only way to go. A manual dial commercial Speed Queen will outlast any of the fancy computerized pieces of imported junk on the market,” one Amazon customer wrote in a recent review. “I've gone through 3 American and foreign brand name units in the last 10 years and all failed. ”

According to the Consumer Reports, “Speed Queen top-loaders are among the more reliable washer brands.” The observation came from a review of washing machines two years ago that drew on a survey of more than 115,000 subscribers.

Consumer Reports tested both a top-loading and a front-loading machine, both with electronic controls; it found that the washers could handle a load of dirty clothes in 35 minutes and 55 minutes, respectively.

Readers gave both models nearly perfect reviews. “ You want this washer!” one reviewer wrote about the top-load model. “This washer is a tank… Before purchasing this machine I called several appliance repairmen and they all recommended Speed Queen hands down.” Based on more than 200 Amazon reviews, the AWN432 gets an overall rating of 4.5 out of five stars, and more than three-quarters of reviewers gave it five stars.

“Best washer I have bought in 50 years,” one verified user wrote.

Here’s the asterisk: They’re not cheap. The two models Consumer Reports looked at cost $1,000 and $1,900 at the time, respectively. (You can now buy the front-loader for about $400 less, but still — that’s a lot of money given that one of Best Buy’s top-selling washers is a top-loading Whirlpool model you can pick up for less than $500.) The AWN432 now rings in at just under $900.

Radtke says the significant price difference is due to the quality of materials used and the engineering that goes into Speed Queen machines. “You’re paying for metal instead of plastic. We could build a cheaper machine, but you’re buying a metal product with a metal tub, metal transmission and a lot of engineering behind it,” he says.

Two factors that help offset the price, according to owners, are the speedy wash cycle times and heavy-duty spin cycle that means less time in the dryer. Both help homeowners cut down on energy usage, translating to lower monthly utility bills.

Then there’s the longevity factor. Radtke says Speed Queen’s units are tested for 25 years — that’s a total of 10,400 loads if you’re running the eight loads a week typical for many families. And there are plenty of anecdotes in product-review listings and online forums of machines that have kept on truckin’ for 40 years. “It sounds like a cliche, but the equipment I have in my house is from the mid-to-late 1980s,” Radtke says.

"…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."

George Orwell, from “1984

 

September 15, 2015 – Legal Weed In Colorado Doesn't Curb Alcohol Sales

December 9, 2016 - Legalized Marijuana Sales Cause Drop in Alcohol Sales

 

Using article upon article to prove that alcohol consumption is dropping all over the globe seems a bit redundant, don’t you think?

It is. I’m proving, rather, that a small, barely-closeted cabal of genetically-related Death worshippers controls the Media around the globe. And I’m proving it by showing identical tactics and verbiage used in a formulaic, methodological way down over time.

In the many examples of falling alcohol consumption below, you’ll see the hand-wringing first line of defense, which is feigned befuddlement:

(U.K., 2011) “Why is alcohol consumption falling?

(U.S., 2016) “What's To Blame For Declining Retail Beer Sales?

From there, in the second line of defense, you’ll be studiously told What To Think - in every language, in every nation - with a chain of hand-waving, smoke-blowing plausible-deniability excuses designed to keep your eye off the larger picture we’re discussing here:

(Florida, USA, 2010) “Florida Alcohol Sales Drop With Temperatures

(India, 2016) – “demonetisation of currency: Liquor, beer sales on the decline

Whatever nation you may live in, as a paid Fight Club propagandist, you have to lie aggressively:

December 9, 2016 - Legalized Marijuana Sales Cause Drop in Alcohol Sales

(September 15, 2015 – Legal Weed In Colorado Doesn't Curb Alcohol Sales)

Since that latter quote looks so bad for them, they had to get one of their own to blow smoke in the article it’s featured in:

However, it’s far too soon to say how marijuana legalization has affected adults’ behavior when it comes to consuming intoxicating substances. A University of Colorado-Denver economist who has studied how marijuana availability impacts alcohol consumption said the Colorado numbers don’t show much. ‘I wouldn’t read too much into one state’s experience,’ Rees said.”

That’s Satanist-speak for “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.” That three-times repetition of the underlined themes is a spell, a Black Magic spell. They call them ‘yes sets’. 

Oh, and check out the people-paying-more-for-quality societal-mprovement I mentioned in the last post, on Speed Queen appliances, shows again here:

December 7, 2016 – 2017 alcohol sales: No new drinkers, but more people paying for quality

I think it’s great that I get to report not only on all of the great, epochal Positive Changes that are going on around the globe, but also the tiresome, threadbare repetitive tactics used by the folks who are for this moment still in charge of things in every nation on Earth. And thereby speed their already-assured demise.

The positive changes are increasing in speed and magnitude, and the methodology of the folks I just mentioned isn’t changing, at all. What do you think is going to happen to them, going forward, as awareness of all of this rises?

Please consider sending them highest love energy as you read this.

However, it’s far too soon to say how marijuana legalization has affected adults’ behavior when it comes to consuming intoxicating substances.

A University of Colorado-Denver economist who has studied how marijuana availability impacts alcohol consumption said the Colorado numbers don’t show much.

This is from wattsupwiththat.com, which is a little confusing, in that I consider THEM to be a Controlled Opposition, Fox-in-the-Henhouse organ-of-the-state.

But successful Propaganda, successful Disinformation requires hard kernels of real Truth to be effective...and the burden is upon the reader to discern Truth from Fiction.

This supports my “Greenpeace” lambasting from a few days ago. Remember, the few control the many via pyramidally-constructed organizations in which fair-seeming, duplicitous, sociopathic con artists at the top of those pyramids fleece wholly-credulous rubes down below. And I’ve subjectively concluded that Greenpeace is one of those organizations. Greenpeace, as in Green, as in Osiris, who was known as “the Great Green."

But don’t take my word for it, ask the guy who co-founded the organization:

"The organization I co-founded has become a monster...Now Greenpeace has knowingly made itself the sworn enemy of all life on Earth."

Perhaps that should be amended to "War is Peace. Green is Death. Ignorance is Strength."

 

 

"Dr. Patrick Moore was right: @Greenpeace IS full of sh*t
Anthony Watts / 3 days ago March 3, 2017
I’ve never had a headline like this, but Greenpeace deserves it for their mind-bending defense in a defamation lawsuit: basically their defense is “we publish hyperbole, therefore it isn’t actionable because it isn’t factual”. GMAFB!

Dr. Patrick Moore, one of the co-founders of Greenpeace, whom they have tried to erase from their website, resigned from the organization because:

The organization I co-founded has become a monster. When I was a member of its central committee in the early days, we campaigned – usually with success – on genuine environmental issues such as atmospheric nuclear tests, whaling and seal-clubbing.

When Greenpeace turned anti-science by campaigning against chlorine (imagine the sheer stupidity of campaigning against one of the elements in the periodic table), I decided that it had lost its purpose and that, having achieved its original objectives, had turned to extremism to try to justify its continued existence.

Now Greenpeace has knowingly made itself the sworn enemy of all life on Earth. By opposing capitalism, it stands against the one system of economics that has been most successful in regulating and restoring the environment.

The story that follows is headlined “Census 2017: Bird population rises in Delhi stretch of Yamuna despite ‘degraded habitat’.”

Where “despite degraded habitat” is a negative, hedging qualifier.

The subhead says “Around 590 birds belonging to 23 species were spotted in 2016, while in 2015, 641 birds belonging to 19 species were seen, it says.” How come it says “around 590” for 2016 - which is inexact, but “641 birds” for 2015 - which is exact?

And why, in the first paragraph of the story, do we read “Around 2,641 birds belonging to 24 species have been spotted this year”? There, “around 2,641” is again inexact, but is also, oh, four times as many as “around 590”, tabled just a few sentences previously. And what’s with “23 species in 2016” in the subhead, and “24 species" in the first paragraph?

That would be repetitive instances of baldfaced lying in support of a failing, wholly-fraudulent agenda, I’m afraid. With the made-up, smaller numbers positioned higher in the article, and the actual, larger numbers buried farther down below, as part of a larger, methodological pattern deconstructed in this thread for a period of over three years, now.

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.

That’s why the Fight Club talking head quoted in the article says the “increase in numbers has come as a surprise”. If you read this mind-numbingly boring and repetitive thread with any regularity, you are not, personally, surprised. This is why I usually append as many ‘lots of birds’ stories together at one time, so the reader can see that anyone who lifts a finger knows that birds are booming and burgeoning all over the globe to levels not seen in our lifetimes.

But not ecologist TK Roy, Asian Waterbird Census Delhi state coordinator! If I had even more time on my hands, I’d reach out to him, and get to include “Roy could not be reached for comment at presstime.”

The author of the article - also a two-bit member of a bloodline Illuminist family, who has an address, and puts his pants on one leg at a time, like the rest of us - tells you a variety of numbers – fabricated, false ones up higher, and larger, correct ones down lower – and takes special care not to present the percentage of the increase, year over year, as printing it would be much more impactful, and go seriously off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all. So I had to do the math.

641 to 2641 is a 312% increase. That’s impressive to read, don’t you think?

And they counted 3,113 birds at Okhla last year, and 6,183, this year. That’s a 98.6% increase, so they admitted, correctly, that the numbers doubled at Okhla, but hedged and omitted that they more than tripled on the Delhi stretch of the Yamuna. And they used the phrase “bird population rises” to describe a bird population that tripled.

In the future, schoolchildren will not be able to conceive that the citizenry at this time did not rush to the offices of these publications and string up or tar-and-feather these people. Or, pulling back, that they believed them with utter credulity, that they wouldn't even do the math. So we’re lying in the bed we made, right now, I reckon.

The baldfacedly-lying Roy bravely goes on to say “the spurt in the numbers this year has been despite declining habitats. ‘The number at Yamuna has increased due to shortage of wetland habitats in Delhi region. Many wetlands have already vanished due to rapid urbanisation and global climate change impact. The Yamuna also provides feeding ground for these birds,’ he said.”

What’s particularly funny about that is that his blathering has this link, right in the middle of it: “Read | Good rain brings winter migratory birds early to Delhi’s Okhla bird sanctuary.”

We’ve got to go to the super-slo-mo instant replay, here.

Quoted Expert: ‘The number at Yamuna has increased due to shortage of wetland habitats in Delhi region.”

Link in same story: “Good rain brings winter migratory birds early to Delhi’s Okhla bird sanctuary.”

I guess "global climate change impact” translates to "plentiful rain in the region and doubling and tripling of local bird populations". Black is White, Ignorance is Strength.

You’d think these guys would let me get back to work, wouldn’t you? Because, having just been laid off, I’ve got, literally, ALL DAY.

And I own them.

Just later, in this same story: “The Asian Waterbird Census earlier had also revealed that bird population has doubled in Okhla in the past one year. “

And so, thus, we’ve learned that “Good rains brought double the number of migratory birds to Delhi’s Okhla sanctuary”, while the Quoted Expert says “there’s a shortage of wetland habitats in the Delhi region” And “Many wetlands have already vanished due to rapid urbanisation and global climate change impact.”

I’m afraid you’re going to have to use your personal discernment.

I have sincere, well-intentioned, hard-working close friends who work at bird sanctuaries. And I can’t share things like this with them, because they’re going to be so angry when they find out how badly they’ve been had, been conned, their Confidence having being gained by fair-seeming, duplicitous Con Artists, in what they call a “Confidence Game”. Well, my friends will be Angry, but that’s only after they leave Denial, which is not just a well-gifted river in Egypt. Etcetera.

But everyone is going through their process, and processes don’t last forever.

And be of good cheer, in that the good news, the great news is sitting here at the base of it all, and will remain after the cloud of human emotion surrounding it has subsided.

 

 

 

 

February 12, 2017 – Census 2017: Bird population rises in Delhi stretch of Yamuna despite ‘degraded habitat’

The findings from Asian Waterbird Census 2017 have revealed an increase in bird population in the Delhi stretch of Yamuna. Around 2,641 birds belonging to 24 species have been spotted this year.

Around 590 birds belonging to 23 species were spotted in 2016, while in 2015, 641 birds belonging to 19 species were seen, it says.

Yamuna in Delhi passes through the most polluted, shrinking and degraded habitat for aquatic wildlife, including waterbirds. Therefore, the increase in numbers has come as a surprise,” said ecologist TK Roy, Asian Waterbird Census Delhi state coordinator, Wetlands International South Asia.

Read | Good rain brings winter migratory birds early to Delhi’s Okhla bird sanctuary

The census on the part of Yamuna between Wazirabad Barrage and Nizamuddin Bridge was carried out by a team led by Roy. Out of 2,641 birds spotted this year, the largest (2,010) has been that of mixed flock of brown-headed and black-headed gulls. Even red lapwing, which falls under the IUCN red-list of threatened species, was sighted. Out of the 24 species, nine are resident waterbirds, while 15 are winter migratory water birds. They migrate from Central and North Asian region.

According to Roy, the spurt in the numbers this year has been despite declining habitats. “The number at Yamuna has increased due to shortage of wetland habitats in Delhi region. Many wetlands have already vanished due to rapid urbanisation and global climate change impact. The Yamuna also provides feeding ground for these birds,” he said.

According to the ecologist, the presence of black-winged stilt shows the foul quality of the river in the city. “Black-winged stilt is known to be a wetland quality indicator as it resides mostly on the polluted wetlands,” he said.

However, not all think the number of birds spotted is too big. According to birdwatcher Vijay Sethi, if one leaves out the gulls, the number of birds is not too much.

“Out of the birds spotted, over 2,000 are gulls. The number of the rest is not too much. Now these gulls can be found at the Wazirabad stretch, where the Yamuna is much cleaner with no sewage going in. Lot of people feed the birds here. There is also a lot of fish in this stretch,” Sethi said.

The Asian Waterbird Census earlier had also revealed that bird population has doubled in Okhla in the past one year. Nearly 53 species with a total of 6,183 birds were counted at the Okhla Bird Sanctuary compared to last year’s 3,113 with 46 species.

Contrary to what you’ve been told your whole life, one person can make a difference. The story that follows is headlined “Chance the Rapper Announces $1 Million Donation to Chicago Public Schools.” He’s given people a physical lift, and shown them, young and old alike, how to be.

The more people with money who put it in the right places, the harder it is for the few to control the many.

How long until someone with some with some real money reads this forum, gets with the program, starts producing Orgonite on a large scale?

Speaking of money, as you read this, our friend Christine is languishing in prison in Southern Sudan, for distributing freaking Orgonite, for trying to help everyone out, including yourself. She’s got kids. And some thousands of dollars are needed to get her out. I think the number currently is $5K.

You don’t have to walk the front line and pound in Earth pipes to make a difference, here. If you check in on this thread regularly, I’d say look at it like a donation to your local Public Radio station.

I see two, four, five, seven people reading this thread all the time, and twenty-some guests on the forum, all the time. There’s no charge to come to this forum. I’d say get active gifting and petition Don for membership, or throw some money in the guitar case, be upright about this situation. This isn’t panhandling. We’re trying to get a wrongly-imprisoned mother out of jail.

March 6, 2017 - Chance the Rapper Announces $1 Million Donation to Chicago Public Schools

“Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positions”

Chance the Rapper held a press conference today at Westcott Elementary School in Chicago to announce that he is donating $1 million to Chicago Public Schools. “Our kids should not be held hostage because of political positions,” he said. He later revealed that he and Common will speak on the phone to discuss further funding.

The announcement follows his meeting with Illinois governor Bruce Rauner last week, where they discussed public education and other “important issues affecting” the city of Chicago and Illinois as a whole.

Immediately following the meeting, Chance expressed his frustration, saying, “It went a little different than it should have,” and that he was given vague answers when speaking with the governor. At the press conference, he reiterated that Gov. Rauner gave him “vague” answers, and shouted, “Gov. Rauner, do your job!” Watch the press conference below.

Chance has also updated his website with a link to support Chicago Public Schools. Learn more here. Read “Charting Chance the Rapper’s Unsigned Success,” as well as Chance’s foreword to Kevin Coval’s A People’s History of Chicago on the Pitch.

“Now your daddy’s in the den, shooting up the evening news"

Jackson Browne, from “Redneck Friend”, 1973

 

 

The story that follows is headlined “A Record-High Number of Plovers: What Does It Mean?”

Well, “record” means “most ever, in history.” Which means that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

On January 26, our colleagues at the National Park Service observed 104 plovers at Ocean Beach, a record number since they began monitoring populations in 1994.”

See? “Most ever.”

There’s a post just above this one, from yesterday, which tells all about how birds are doing great in Delhi, India, as well as here in San Francisco. They’re booming to historically-unprecedented levels in both places. In Delhi, the numbers were double, or triple what they saw last year.

While they’ve quadrupled in San Francisco: “[Spotting] 104 birds is four times what we’ve normally seen over the last 20 or so years,” he says.

Fight Club has cells in every city in every nation on Earth. They’re the people who write the newspaper articles, and who get quoted in the newspaper articles. In Delhi, the bird-expert guy bravely said “loss of wetland habitat due to climate change” caused a doubling and tripling of birds.

Well, what’s the bird-expert in San Francisco have to say? “There are also the increasing storm surges and sea level rise with climate change that are eroding their habitats at places like Ocean Beach.”

Same shit, different nation. The first rule of Fight Club is you don’t talk about Fight Club.

Here’s the San Francisco explanation for the quadrupling of birds:

Merkle hypothesizes the surge in sightings this year might be attributed to the El Niño storms washing out most of Ocean Beach—and driving the birds to move to other areas of the shoreline. This is the third year in a row where, according to Merkle, “the numbers have been particularly strong and building.”

I’m sorry, Mr. Merkle – who, in addition to having a name, also has an address, and puts his pants on one leg at the time like the rest of us – El Nino didn’t last three years, so “El Nino storms washing away most of Ocean Beach” is illogical, irrational, as an explanation for three straight years of building plover populations. Remember, he loves him some Nature, and studies birds for a living.

He goes on, branzely pushing the agenda: “Merkle mentions one more possible weather-related explanation for this spike in sightings: Mild winters in previous years could be causing plovers to survive in larger numbers, and that’s why we see more.”

Could be causing? This is science, or is supposed to be. It is, or it is not causing plovers to survive in larger numbers. Can you see how he refuses to mention the improved rainfall of the last three years as any sort of driver, at all? He’s forbidden to mention it.

The repugnant, jarring meme word spike is used, to imply numbers have shot up, but will shoot right back down again, forming a spike on the graph.

After all that bullshitting, we finally get to:

He doesn’t dismiss other, non-weather-related possibilities, though.” Having shaken and shaken the climate change dolly, and danced around, they’ve buried this at the end:

At least last year [2015], we heard some rumors that Oregon had a really strong breeding year,”

Rumors. It’s fun, being incredibly stupid, like in the middle ages!

If those rumors are true, Mr. Merkle, how did the serial, multi-year degradation of Ocean Beach by El Nino storms (with “El Nino” being a phenomenon that does not occur every year) drive a really strong breeding year for plovers in Oregon, hundreds of miles away?

“That erosion might explain the recent spike in plover numbers.”

Where “Might” shows it is not science, but rather a plausible-deniabilty trial balloon, floated to keep your eye off the larger picture we’re discussing here. The repugnant, jarring meme word spike is used, to imply numbers have shot up, but will shoot right back down again, forming a spike on the graph. Remember, plover numbers have been building for three straight years, so the word spike is wildly incorrect, an obvious ruse, deployed by a Propagandist, a Disinformation Artist.

See how it was repeated, twice in the article? It lays in the programming, spike. spike. spike.

 And so, day after day, I document booming, burgeoning wildlife populations, across the globe, in every nation.

And, day after day, I document the same tired, repetitive story lines and verbiage deployed to hedge and defray against that great news, repeated in different languages, in every nation on Earth.

I think it’s easy to see that, when bird populations double again, the flimsy Propaganda wall will be washed away by the obvious truth of what’s going on.

What do you think will happen, then, to the Nature-loving and so-quotable bird experts, Mr. Roy, and Mr. Merkle? And to the careful, thorough, repetitive, like-minded authors of these articles, Curran White and Ritam Halder?

Look at the little Death-prayer Mr. White closes the article with:

“Even with robust Western snowy plover numbers this year, these birds still have a ways to go before they bounce back from their imperiled status.”

Please consider sending him highest love energy as you read this.

 

March, 2016 - A Record-High Number of Plovers: What Does It Mean?

From Park E-ventures, March 2016

By Curran White

Among the dunes and the wide, sandy shores of Ocean Beach and the Crissy Field Wildlife Protection Area lies the overwintering grounds for one of the 37 federally endangered or threatened species in the Golden Gate National Parks—a six-inch shorebird called the Western snowy plover (Charadrius nivosus nivosus).

On January 26, our colleagues at the National Park Service observed 104 plovers at Ocean Beach, a record number since they began monitoring populations in 1994 (one year after the species was listed by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service as federally threatened).

According to Dr. Bill Merkle, wildlife ecologist for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the average count at Ocean Beach is in the low- to mid-20s per survey. “[Spotting] 104 birds is four times what we’ve normally seen over the last 20 or so years,” he says.

At the Crissy Field Wildlife Protection Area (west end of Crissy Field Beach), the population is much smaller than that at Ocean Beach, with averages hovering between one and six birds per surveying season (early July until the end of April or early May).

Habitat Loss

Once abundant on the West Coast (from Washington in the north to Baja California and Mexico in the south), the Western snowy plover has a total nesting population around 2,100 birds. According to Taylor Ellis, wildlife technician for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, the plover’s threatened status is linked to development, human population growth, and human activity that has caused a decline in its nesting habitat.

“Encroachment of exotic European beachgrass into nesting areas and predation by other animals, like ravens, are also threats,” Ellis adds. “There are also the increasing storm surges and sea level rise with climate change that are eroding their habitats at places like Ocean Beach.”

That erosion might explain the recent spike in plover numbers. Merkle hypothesizes the surge in sightings this year might be attributed to the El Niño storms washing out most of Ocean Beach—and driving the birds to move to other areas of the shoreline.

This is the third year in a row where, according to Merkle, “the numbers have been particularly strong and building.”

“This year, we had one other count with 99 [birds seen on Ocean Beach],” he notes. “We’ve had lots of plovers on the beach in 2015 (fall and winter). Our previous high count was in 1994 when we first started the monitoring, and that was 85 birds. We hadn’t really come close to that until this year, and we’ve surpassed that on several accounts.”

Contributing Environmental Forces

Merkle mentions one more possible weather-related explanation for this spike in sightings: Mild winters in previous years could be causing plovers to survive in larger numbers, and that’s why we see more. He doesn’t dismiss other, non-weather-related possibilities, though.

At least last year [2015], we heard some rumors that Oregon had a really strong breeding year,” Merkle says. “And that’s why they saw a lot of the banded birds from Oregon, and maybe some of these other birds were coming further south.”

The ideal habitat for Western snowy plovers consists primarily of coastal beaches, sandbars, sand dunes, and river-mouths, above the high tide line—making Ocean Beach and Crissy Field prime real estate for overwintering and finding their food source (small insects and beach invertebrates).

“They like this wide, sort of flat sandy beaches so Ocean Beach [from stairwell 21 to Sloat Blvd.], especially on the outer coast, is one of the primary beaches in the Bay Area,” Merkle explains. “The next big, sandy beach you would find is up at Point Reyes [National Seashore], and to the south is somewhere around Half Moon Bay. We think Ocean Beach, in between Point Reyes and Half Moon Bay, has high ecological value for shorebirds.”

Plovers usually land in Northern California (from Point Reyes to Half Moon Bay), starting in April for their breeding and nesting season, but, as Ellis clarifies, he and Merkle haven’t documented any plovers nesting or breeding in the Golden Gate National Parks. They’ve only seen the shorebird use the parklands as overwintering grounds.

“There’s likely too much disturbance from people, dogs, and ravens for their vulnerable eggs and chicks to survive,” Ellis explains.

How to Spot a Plover

Merkle and his team (two interns and a wildlife technician) perform their seasonal monitoring of Ocean Beach and the Crissy Field Wildlife Protection Area every Wednesday and Saturday almost year-round.

The observers walk the entire length of Ocean Beach (3.5 miles), armed with binoculars, and scout the sand-covered horizon for any signs of the diminutive and elusive shorebird.

“We also collect a little bit of data on how high on the beach they are,” Merkle adds. “Are they down on the water line? Are they in the old tide line, or are they above the old tide line? Are they foraging or not foraging?”

Ellis notes that it’s important to note the various locations on the beach that the Western snowy plover populations are consistently occupying. These observations guide park management to make informed decisions on how to best protect the threatened shorebird and its sensitive habitat.

Despite seeing only a fraction of the sightings compared to Ocean Beach, the Crissy Field Wildlife Protection Area and the surrounding dune habitat, through restoration efforts, has become prime, bridge-side Western snowy plover habitat. Merkle believes the “dunes look really nice [to the bird].”

“At Crissy [Field Wildlife Protection Area], we’ll see the plovers out on the open beach by the water sometimes, and other times they are in the vegetated dunes,” Merkle says. “We had sporadic sightings of one or two birds every so often [at Crissy Field] in 2005, and then we had birds that came and started hanging out in the Wildlife Protection Area, and we think it was related to that beach starting to accumulate sand and growing much wider.”

Even with robust Western snowy plover numbers this year, these birds still have a ways to go before they bounce back from their imperiled status.

At Phillips Station near Lake Tahoe—one of the oldest reporting stations in the region and a site of frequent media interest—the snow depth is 43.4 inches this week. One year ago, it was 24.3 inches, and two years ago it was 6.5 inches.”

That’s a story from just this week. You’ll notice that they printed the numbers, but avoided saying anything about the percentage increases, year over year, as doing so would have been much more impactful, so they hedged by omitting them. Making me do the math.

6.4 to 24.3 is a 274% increase. 24.3 to 43.4 is a 78% increase. 6.4 to 43.4 is a 578% increase.

Signally, snowpack is at its highest in the Southern Sierra, southern, as in So Cal, the very Heart of Darkness, where the great artificial drought reached its apogee.

I’ve subjectively concluded that Death energy is and has been used to, among many other things, deliberately create drought throughout history, starting way back when with human sacrifices performed at the base of stone Ba’al pillars up in “the high places”, and continuing unabated to the additional use of tower arrays carefully erected in those same high places.

It’s March, 2017. And I’ve also subjectively concluded that 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.

 

 

 

March 3, 2017 - California Snowpack 185% of normal, another big snow on the way

From NASA:

Abundant Snowpack Blankets the Sierra Nevada

Snowpack on the Sierra Nevada provides one-third of the water consumed by California citizens, farmers, and businesses each year. For the first time in at least five years, there should be more than enough of it.

According to the California Department of Water Resources (DWR), the water stored as snow in the Sierra Nevada range was 185 percent of the long-term average for the beginning of March. One year ago, it was 83 percent of the norm. According to the latest measurements from 98 ground-based stations, the average snow-water equivalent in the mountains was 45.5 inches as of March 1, 2017. Snow-water equivalent is an estimate of how much water you would get if all of the snow melted at once.

The abundance of snow is spread out across the mountain range. California DWR reported snowpack at 159 percent of normal in the Northern Sierra/Trinity region, 191 percent in the Central Sierra, and 201 percent in the Southern Sierra. State water scientists noted that the snowpack is the highest it has been since 1983 (the end of a major El Niño event).

At Phillips Station near Lake Tahoe—one of the oldest reporting stations in the region and a site of frequent media interest—the snow depth is 43.4 inches this week. One year ago, it was 24.3 inches, and two years ago it was 6.5 inches.

"This last was for the disposal of waste paper. Similar slits existed in thousands or tens of thousands throughout the building, not only in every room but at short intervals in every corridor. For some reason they were nicknamed memory holes. When one knew that any document was due for destruction, or even when one saw a scrap of waste paper lying about, it was an automatic action to lift the flap of the nearest memory hole and drop it in, whereupon it would be whirled away on a current of warm air to the enormous furnaces which were hidden somewhere in the recesses of the building."

First-crop soybeans will go up 25.7%, or 1.3 million tons, compared to last year’s harvest that was plagued by weather problems.

 

 

 

It's March 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.

In the example of the biggest deer harvest in the history of the State of Delaware, they say "this season marks the seventh time within the last 12 years the deer harvest has exceeded 14,000 since Delaware’s first modern-day deer season was held in 1954."

That's a Disinformation technique called "throwing chaff" - it's supposed to take your eye off the fact that the two biggest years ever, in history, were this year, and last year, back-to-back. Which obviously creates a problem for the people trying to run the "Poor Mother Gaia is Dying"confidence game.

In the story "Plum growers expect to reap bumper crop after many years" we read "Unlike last few years, good snowfall and chilling cold in January have prevented early bloom in plum orchards and growers are expecting to reap a bumper harvest this year."

Where "good snowfall and chilling cold in January" doesn't do the "hottest year in the history of planet Earth" whopper any favors.

In the story headlined "Brazil Boosts Estimates for Record Bumper Crops" we read "Brazil ‘s government grain agency CONAB raised its estimates Tuesday for record bumper crops of soybeans and grains. Favorable weather and an increase in planted areas have helped yields to recover from last year’s weather-related losses."

Where "last year's weather related losses" is a baldfaced lie, in that:

January 11, 2016 - Brazil's 2016 safrinha corn crop could match record high

And:

February 22, 2016 - Brazil heading for a record crop of 100 million tons of soybeans ...

So they tried of defray the news of the largest production in history - a back-to-back record on top of the previous year - with a baldfaced lie, hoping you, or I, would not fact-check.

What I'm proving, here, is that the folks writing the stories are Complicit, and are Conspiring, in every city in every nation on Earth.

Oh, and that the great artificial drought has been broken, and that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

March 3, 2017 - Cuban tobacco farmers celebrate a bumper crop

Cuba’s tobacco farmers are celebrating a bumper crop after two bad years that coincided with a boom in demand set off by a surge of tourists and looser U.S. rules on cigar-buying.

March 3, 2017 - Brazil Boosts Estimates for Record Bumper Crops

Brazil ‘s government grain agency CONAB raised its estimates Tuesday for record bumper crops of soybeans and grains.

Favorable weather and an increase in planted areas have helped yields to recover from last year’s weather-related losses, the agency said. This year, an additional 1.3%, or 59.1 million hectares (145.9 million acres), has been planted.

CONAB projected an an 8.3 million ton rise in soybean production totaling 103.8 million tons, an increase of 8.7%. The area planted with soybeans increased 1.6%. First-crop soybeans will go up 25.7%, or 1.3 million tons, compared to last year’s harvest that was plagued by weather problems.

Grain production will increase 15.3% to 215.3 million tons, up by 28.6 million tons, CONAB said.

The total corn harvest will jump 26% to 84.5 million tons, with the first harvest put at 28.4 million tons and the second harvest at 56.1 million tons.

Rice production will go up 9.7% to 11.6 million tons.

The end-of-winter 2016 wheat harvest grew 21.5% to 6.7 million tons, CONAB said.

Rains have been normal and continuous in the agricultural powerhouse state of Mato Grosso, CONAB said. Weather forecasts for Brazil predict favorable weather for the rest of January and for February, it said.

 

March 6, 2017 - Manali, India - Plum growers expect to reap bumper crop after many years

Unlike last few years, good snowfall and chilling cold in January have prevented early bloom in plum orchards and growers are expecting to reap a bumper harvest this year.Kullu district is the main plum grower in Himachal. Bloom in plum is expected in March but it was coming in February in entire district. According to scientists with horticulture departments, rise in temperature was its main cause.

As the temperature is still stable due to frequent rain and snowfall on hills, the bloom is still to come in the next two weeks in most of the orchards in Kullu."We are sure to get bumper crop this year," said a plum grower, Amit Bhardwaj. He added, "Premature flowering has destroyed crop in last few years. Scientists term global warming to be the main cause.

March 8, 2017 - Christian Kropp has seen two Tasmanian tigers in the Barrington Tops

Damon Cronshaw

Christian Kropp knows what he saw.

It was unmistakable. Not only that, it happened twice.

We’re talking about the Tasmanian tiger.

Christian, 36, has been going deep into the Barrington Tops wilderness for years.

“Being a Maitland boy and coming from a large family of six, we were always camping,” he said.

“We know this place like the back of our hands.”

We reported last week that researcher Rex Gilroy believed the Tasmanian tiger [also known as the thylacine] still existed in the Barrington Tops wilderness.

Scientists say the thylacine became extinct in Tasmania in 1936 and on the Australian mainland about 2000 years ago.

Nevertheless, there has been hundreds of suspected sightings in Tasmania and on the mainland in the decades since, including in recent years.

Christian is among those eyewitnesses.

He commented on the Newcastle Herald’s Facebook page when we posted the story about Rex.

“Well...me and my father have seen two....clear as day....,” he wrote.

We contacted him and asked him to share his story.

As Clear As Day

His first sighting happened in the Barrington Tops when he was 11.

He and his dad were collecting firewood.

“I’ve seen plenty of dingoes in my life and I’m educated quite well on animals and the bush,” he said.

What he saw was not a dingo.

“It popped out on this spot where we get wood, close to a creek,” he said.

“Dad was amazed.”

He vividly recalled his dad’s words: “You don’t see this every day, son”.

“He thought it couldn't be true,” Christian said of his dad, who he described as “your typical Australian bushy”.

Christian, who now lives at Seal Rocks, remembers the experience as “clear as day”.

He described the creature as having “black to faded stripes on its back-end and smaller than a dingo”.

“Dad always said it was [a Tasmanian tiger].”

They believed “there could be no doubt”.

One sighting in a lifetime must be considered special. Then, 20 years later, Christian experienced a second sighting.

This one happened only five years ago.

The site was about 30 kilometres from the first sighting, he said.

He was riding his motorbike at the time.

This sighting, he said, was “clear as day as well”.

An Ancient Landscape

Christian has great affection for the Barrington Tops area.

“We love this place and respect it in many ways,” he said.

He said there was “not many places I haven't been up there”.

He’d seen the place “bring many people unstuck”.

These sightings may be hard for some people to believe. But consider this. The Barrington Tops is part of the Gondwana Rainforests of Australia World Heritage Area.

The National Parks and Wildlife Service describes this area as an “ancient landscape” and “the most extensive strip of diverse rainforest anywhere on earth”.

“The World Heritage Area is a direct window into the past and the future, providing a link to the ancient pre-human world and a stunning and irreplaceable record of life on our planet,” the service said on its website.

“Most of Barrington Tops National Park is declared wilderness; large, natural areas of land that, together with their native plants and animal communities, remain essentially unchanged by modern human activity.”

In the story that follows, "NYC Crime Stats Drop Again, But Hate Crimes Are Up", I'm sure you were able to pick out the finger-wagging negative hedge at the end of the headline: "but hate crimes are up". You see that same tactic used literally every day if you follow this thread. It's formulaic, part of a formula.

The first sentence of the article says the already-low crime rate "crept even lower", hilariously using the word "crept" to describe a jaw-dropping 10 percent year over year decrease. 

Creep: informal - a detestable person.

2. slow movement, especially at a steady but almost imperceptible pace.

Dropping crime is something to be celebrated. Creeping is not wholesome, not positive. A 10 percent increase is not "almost imperceptible". Wildly-gymnastic, baldly-obvious Propaganda, Disinformation, Spin.

"Murder was the only crime to see an uptick as compared to last February. There were 18 last year and 20 this year, but that number does come with a caveat. Five of the murders recorded in February 2017 were reclassifications of crimes previously committed."

Wow, classic - sending someone back into the stacks to reclassify crimes so they could artificially push the number up.

But back to the headline-worthy, finger-wagging caveat: "Despite the drop in overall crime stats, hate crimes did rise year over year in February."

With no further word on the subject, re: the percentage increase in hate crimes, or even any numbers. Just "did rise." 

So crime rates continue to drop to the lowest levels seen since they've been keeping records, to the lowest levels seen in my lifetime. 

And the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Media organs of every city in every nation on Earth continue to use the same tired, repetitive tactics to try to defray that amazing positive news.

And I'm continuing to document it all here.

 

March 1, 2017 - NYC Crime Stats Drop Again, But Hate Crimes Are Up

New York City’s already low crime rate crept even lower in the month of February, with crime figures dropping nearly 10 percent in February 2017 versus February 2016. So far, crime this year is down 2.8 percent as compared to the first two months of 2016.

“This is about the ability of the NYPD to deepen its relationship with neighborhood residents,” Mayor Bill de Blasio said at a press conference Wednesday. “A lot more information is flowing to the NYPD, allowing our officers to be more effective. That is one of the X factors here and why the city continues to get safer.”

February saw 40 shootings, 85 rapes, 965 robberies, 1,287 felonious robberies, 878 burglaries, and 2,973 grand larcenies — all lower numbers than February last year. Murder was the only crime to see an uptick as compared to last February. There were 18 last year and 20 this year, but that number does come with a caveat. Five of the murders recorded in February 2017 were reclassifications of crimes previously committed.

The story that follows is headlined "105th Sees Significant Drop In Crime'

While that's very positive news, it's also defensive hedging, in that "significant" is quite an understatement if one is trying to describe crime that's dropping at double-digit rates to the lowest levels in history.

The precinct's commanding officer says that "crime is at an all-time low, thanks to a combination of community involvement and good old fashioned policing." But, if that's true, then why are we seeing similar drops in crime all over the globe? And why didn't the precinct commander mention them?

That's because he's formulaically using a local, micro-level plausible-deniability excuse in an attempt to keep your eyes off the larger, macro-level phenomenon I just mentioned.

He keeps saying "decrease", "decrease", like a parrot, but carefully avoids using numbers, or percentages.

He's getting quoted in an article, so he's a picked Fight Club insider, bravely trying to hold the party line as his Organization collapses in on itself, worldwide.

The author of the article, who is also a member of a bloodline Illuminist family, says "At least one Southeast Queens police precinct saw some significant changes for the better in 2016", using "at least one" to imply that all the others were crime-ridden, and to imply that this is an isolated phenomenon. As an author, he also somehow missed mentioning the similar crime drops we're seeing all over the globe.

You know how the Media feverishly tries to paint a picture of gun-riddled, wild-west urban scenes? Check this out:

"A single homicide took place in 2016, beating the previous record of three for the fewest number of homicides in a year for the 105th."

One. Single. Homicide. What is this, some tiny town out on the Great Plains? No, it's NYC, baby.

We're already living in the new, transformed world, have already made it past these people. It's just that they, and much of the populace that they control via subterfuge are in some serious denial about it.

 

February 24, 2017 - New York, NY - 105th Sees Significant Drop In Crime

BY TRONE DOWD

At least one Southeast Queens police precinct saw some significant changes for the better in 2016.

In an interview with the Press of Southeast Queens, 105th Precinct Inspector Jeffrey Schiff, who is the precinct’s commanding officer, said that crime is at an all-time low, thanks to a combination of community involvement and good old fashioned policing.

“We have had a significant drop in crime for the year 2016 compared to previous years,” Schiff said. “For the seven major categories, we have a decrease in every category. We had a decrease in homicides, a decrease in shootings, a decrease in domestic violence, a decrease in accidents, in civilian complaints against the 105th. All of those crime statistics are down, which is a phenomenal job done by the 105th’s officers.”

(story truncates here, says 'click link to read more'. Which makes it so the reader can get through the whole upper section with no exposure to numbers, data. Story continues if you click the link):

The numbers for 2016 show a vast improvement for the precinct. Out of the seven major crime categories that saw decreases, four of them— homicides, robberies, rapes and grand larceny auto incidents— saw double digit decreases. A single homicide took place in 2016, beating the previous record of three for the fewest number of homicides in a year for the 105th. Shootings also hit a near all-time low, with 11 incidents taking place in 2016, just edging out the record low of 10 incidents. Overall, the 105th precinct had 1,745 crimes in 2016, the lowest-ever number of recorded crimes in the precinct.

The news is particularly noteworthy considering the size of the 105th Precinct, which is the fourth largest in the city. It encompasses 12.7 square miles with 354 miles of roadway, including seven major highways. To help alleviate crime, the 105th expanded a satellite precinct funded by the City Council and Mayor Bill de Blasio in Rosedale last March. According to Schiff, the satellite precinct has helped cut down response times significantly. Whereas times averaged 9.3 minutes a decade ago, they now hover around seven minutes and 45 seconds.

The size of the precinct is the main impetus for the approval of a 116th Precinct, which would essentially cut the 105th into two parts, making it less of a strain of NYPD resources.

“How did we achieve this?,” Schiff asked. “That’s got to be the big question. Well, there’s a number of things. I have a very specific philosophy about policing.”

Schiff attributed the change to “bringing the community into” combating local issues.

The story that follows is headlined "Chinook salmon spawning in record numbers in Putah Creek". Which certainly doesn't do the "Poor Mother Gaia is Dying" confidence game any favors.

Rather, it shows clearly that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

Why so many salmon? "likely as a result of improved drought and habitat conditions and various management practices in the region."

Improved drought conditions. Can you see how they aren't allowed to say "the breaking of the drought", or the ending of the drought?

And they mention "various management practices", but don't go on to be specific about any of them. Why so quiet on the subject?

"Colder water, adequate habitat and established management and restoration projects on the creek have also improved conditions for successful salmon spawning."

Wait, colder water? How is that possible during the hottest year in the history of planet Earth?

And what specific established management and restoration projects, please? Why a general statement, but - again -  no specific examples?

Around 1,500 salmon have been recorded spawning in Putah Creek this winter,” said Peter Moyle, a professor emeritus in the Department of Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology. Some researchers have argued that there may even be close to 2,000 salmon spawning there currently, a significant increase from last year’s numbers. During 2016, around 500 to 700 salmon were recorded spawning in Putah Creek."

The author describes the increase as "significant". If we use 600 for the 2016 number, and 1,750 for the 2017 number, that's a 191% increase. Using the professor emeritus' most-conservative number, 1,500, that's still 150%. And so, thus, "Significant" hedges, well, significantly. By the way, in addition to hedging, did you notice that the author took special care to not print the percentage of the increase, as doing so would have been more impactful, and gone seriously off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all?

And can you see how the author gave the "professor emeritus" first positioning, and gave his smaller number first positioning? And how the author said that the researchers telling the truth about the number were arguing it? And how they withheld the names of the other researchers?

That's because the author, Anya Rehon, and the "professor emeritus", Peter Moyle, in addition to having names, and addresses, and putting on their pants one leg at a time, like the rest of us, are also members of Fight Club, are part of a larger, yes, Conspiracy, which I am documenting here on a daily basis down through time.

Boyle got quoted because he's a picked insider. And the author is in it with him, as you can see by the careful, consistent slant and spin in support of an unspoken agenda.

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.

That's why "researchers studying the area were surprised and pleased with the increasing numbers of salmon present today."

Surprised! Like children when the bounce house truck pulls up.

For God's sake, these are people who research fish for a living. They watch the Bonneville numbers as closely as I do.

I bet they read this thread, print posts out, pass them around. Muttering, shitting bricks. Them and their Illuminist fish-counter buddies. :)

By the way, did you see my post a day or two ago about our friend, Christine, languishing in jail in Souther Sudan, for distributing Orgonite? The number to get her out is currently $5,000. If you've already done so, thank you for assisting. I've done what I can and will continue to send more, as I can. 

If you are reading this thread and haven't done anything to assist Christine I'd ask you to please consider doing so, now, today.

 

 

January 22, 2017 - Chinook salmon spawning in record numbers in Putah Creek

Record level numbers of Chinook salmon have been spawning in Putah Creek this winter, likely as a result of improved drought and habitat conditions and various management practices in the region.

“Around 1,500 salmon have been recorded spawning in Putah Creek this winter,” said Peter Moyle, a professor emeritus in the Department of Wildlife, Fish and Conservation Biology.

Some researchers have argued that there may even be close to 2,000 salmon spawning there currently, a significant increase from last year’s numbers. During 2016, around 500 to 700 salmon were recorded spawning in Putah Creek.

Researchers studying the area were surprised and pleased with the increasing numbers of salmon present today. During the 1970s, only a few salmon were recorded in the creek, and, in 2014, numbers were still significantly low, with some 200 salmon observed.

“Since 1999, the species of Chinook salmon present in the Sacramento river region have been identified as a Species of Concern,” according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) National Marine Fisheries Service.

Poor habitat conditions, the drought and local dams cutting off adequate spawning habitat for the fish contributed to the lower observed numbers recognized over the years.

Moyle proposed that it is new salmon, likely from hatcheries throughout the region that did not originally spawn in Putah Creek, that are coming into the creek now because of increased river flows. Colder water, adequate habitat and established management and restoration projects on the creek have also improved conditions for successful salmon spawning.

During December 2016, researchers at UC Davis received $125,000 from the Solano County Water Agency (SCWA) for a study that aims to track the number of juvenile salmon that are present in Putah Creek. Through this genetic study, researchers will be able to understand which and how many fish are native to the creek. This knowledge will be able to guide decision-makers about which creek management choices to make for successful salmon survival conditions.

“I think it’s great to have better scientific knowledge about these fish […] Hopefully it can help us shape how we manage the creek so that we can enhance the habitat further,” said Chris Lee, principal water resources specialist for the SCWA.

For now, the improved habitat and the increasing numbers of Chinook salmon spawning in Putah Creek has indicated that this ecosystem is recovering, as are the numbers of other kinds of species local to the area too.

Moyle believes that with a continued rainy year ahead, the creek may hold even more salmon in the future.

It's March 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 a current news story, below, to support it.

It tells about the second year in a row we've seen a record wheat harvest in Russia. 

And this one's in even more beautiful condition, almost every stalk of it:

"According to estimates, only 4% of the total crop is in poor condition, which is much smaller than last year."

What creates such a harvest? Beautiful, perfect weather. Rain in perfect measure. No out-of-balance pests. A best-harvest-in-history driven, I suggest, by higher and higher levels of life energy, and lower and lower levels of Death energy in the larger environment.

"Dry weather conditions in the Russian Federation in August 2016 has led to certain delays in winter grain crops for the summer harvest in 2017 But by the middle of October 2016, the delays were overcome and the total area of winter crops in Russia amounted to 17.4 million hectares – about 7% more than in 2016, the Average temperature in winter 2016/17 was lower than a year ago, however, snow cover in most regions sufficient to protect crops. According to estimates, only 4% of the total crop is in poor condition, which is much smaller than last year. "

Wait, what? The average temperature was lower than a year ago, across the great expanse of Mother Russia? With bonus "sufficient snowcover in most regions"? (narrows eyes) That's simply not possible! Last year was the hottest year in Earth's recorded history! Oh, well, I guess that was just THERE."

"Dry weather conditions led to certain delays"...you mean, re: delays in the growing of the most wheat in one season that anyone in Russia's ever seen? For the wholly-credulous, that's not an important, factual mention of dry weather, but what is rather Propaganda, albeit feeble Propaganda. Remember, Poor Mother Gaia's supposed to be dying.

"Led to certain delays"...no, that's a deviant inversion, in that a late harvest is larger and more successful, while a rushed, early harvest is smaller, and not as successful. And this most-successful-(late)-harvest-in-History is the role model of perfection. So read it again, please, "Dry weather conditions led to certain delays".

It kicks off the paragraph.

We looked at similar gyrations very recently, with these examples:

February 22, 2016 - Brazil heading for a record crop of 100 million tons of soybeans
March 3, 2017 - Brazil ‘s first-crop soybeans will go up 25.7%, or 1.3 million tons, compared to last year’s harvest that was plagued by weather problems.

Another biggest harvest anyone's ever seen, in another country, and the same mention of the (shake tattered voodoo doll, wave arms, dance about) weather problems.

They're beyond desperate, as their global Death energy matrix is collapsing, and more quickly every day, as demonstrated by the story I just posted. And the environment is coming back to the vitality and health it used to know.

And there's going to be no way to explain away their malefic efforts, no way for them to reclaim and rebuild that matrix, once a sufficient subset of the populace has awakened to its existence and purpose, and taken the necessary steps to disabling it, to transforming it back to its rightful, natural state, carrying and conducting what Wilehm Reich called "Positive Orgone Radiation", and what others have called Chi, Prana, et al.

Remember, a rising tide lifts all the boats. Do what you can to change history, change the world for the better, here and now.

If you haven't already done so, please consider distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices where you live and work today, or sponsoring a gifter, perhaps even through this forum.

 

March 3, 2017 - FAO:  will harvest a record wheat harvest in 2017

The food and agriculture organization of the UN (FAO) predicts that this year Russia will be able to collect a better wheat crop than the record 2016

-

Thus, FAO predicts that in Russia in the second year in a row will be a record harvest of wheat. According to expert estimates, in 2017 the amount of the wheat crop in Russia will grow by 1% compared with the previous year to 74 million tons. In 2016 the wheat crop in Russia reached a record 73.3 million tons.

“Dry weather conditions in the Russian Federation in August 2016 has led to certain delays in winter grain crops for the summer harvest in 2017 But by the middle of October 2016, the delays were overcome and the total area of winter crops in Russia amounted to 17.4 million hectares – about 7% more than in 2016, the Average temperature in winter 2016/17 was lower than a year ago, however, snow cover in most regions sufficient to protect crops. According to estimates, only 4% of the total crop is in poor condition, which is much smaller than last year.

Given the very good condition of winter crops and anticipated favorable weather conditions during the ripening period, the total volume of wheat production in Russia is projected at 74 million tons, slightly above the record of last year.”

According to FAO projections, Russia will increase wheat exports to a new record: in 2017 the export of wheat will amount to 28.5 million tonnes, exceeding the indicators 2016 at 24.6 million tons.

“A large share of the increase in wheat exports from the countries of Eastern Europe in 2017 will have on the Russian Federation, where export volume is expected at a record level 28.5 million tons. It will make the country a leader among the world exporters of wheat.”

It's March, 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 a current news story below to support it.

The State running that Confidence Game on the populace also controls the Media, which is why the headline of the story, "More great white sharks appear to be visiting off Cape Cod", hedges multiple times. More great white sharks appear to be visiting. Which makes it seem as if the "visiting" is not a certainty. "Visiting" hedges again, stating that they're not residents, part of a rebuilding ecosystem, but are, rather, "just passing by". There's a story some ways back in this thread about whales in New York harbor that uses that exact same verbiage to explain it away: "visiting".

Here's a quote from that story, from November, 2016: “The whales returned around 2010 and have been increasing ever since. In 2011, there was a total of three sightings, the next year sightings doubled, then in 2013 doubled again. In 2014, we saw as many whales as we had seen in all the three previous years combined.”

And so you can again see that great, epochal positive changes are occurring, and that Nature is booming and burgeoning to a level not seen in my lifetime.

But back to the Great Whites. The final hedge in the headline is "More great white sharks..." Yes, "more" is technically correct, but significantly downplays that numbers have basically doubled in just two years.

"The seals used to be concentrated at the Monomoy Wildlife Refuge, off limits to humans, but as they have moved farther north, so have the sharks, Skomal said."

That's thinly-veiled Global Warming con-artistry - the seals "moved farther north" with the unstated inference being "as the oceans have warmed." The truth of the matter being that the seal population is booming, burgeoning and expanding just as the shark population is. And the salmon, and the stone crabs, and, well you get the drift.

Did I mention the North Atlantic is cooling significantly, which is the opposite of the inferred warming? But don't take my word for it, "January 5, 2017 - North Atlantic Cooling Has Plunged Below 1950s (And 1800s) Levels ..."; "February 24, 2017 - Drastic cooling in North Atlantic beyond worst fears, scientists warn ..."

During the hottest year in the history of planet Earth. To preserve current programming levels, narrow eyes and affirm, "yeah, but that's THERE" and "the heat is buried in the deep ocean."

To say the game's really not going their way, here is a wild understatement. 

At some point, classrooms full of students are going to address this subject matter, and I don't think the time can be very far off, anymore.

 

 

 

 

March 12, 2017 - More great white sharks appear to be visiting off Cape Cod

BOSTON (AP) — Great white sharks are discovering what tourists have known for years: Cape Cod is a great place to spend the summer.

The latest data from a multiyear study of the ocean predators found that the number of sharks in waters off the vacation haven appears to be on the rise, said Greg Skomal, a senior scientist with the Massachusetts Division of Marine Fisheries, and the state's top shark expert.

But that's no reason to cancel vacation. The sharks are after seals, not humans, and towns are using the information from the study to keep it that way.

"How long does it stay and where does it go are the questions we're trying to answer," Skomal said. "But for the towns, it's a public safety issue."

Researchers using a plane and boats spotted 147 individual white sharks last summer. That was up slightly from 2015, but significantly more than the 80 individual sharks spotted in 2014, the first year of the study , funded by the Atlantic White Shark Conservancy.

More than half the white sharks spotted last summer hadn't previously been documented by this study.

Researchers have also tagged more than 100 to track their movements.

The white shark population is probably significantly larger, because the scientists can't possibly spot all of them, Skomal said.

Two of the more interesting findings are the increasing number of young sharks, and that they appear to be swimming farther afield.

"Last summer we saw greater numbers of smaller sharks, including juveniles, and that tells us that the population is rebuilding," Skomal said.

Great whites, made famous in the 1975 movie "Jaws," about a monstrous shark that terrorizes a fictional New England resort town, are coming to Cape Cod waters to feast on seals. Once hunted to near extinction, the now-protected seals are found in great numbers.

The seals used to be concentrated at the Monomoy Wildlife Refuge, off limits to humans, but as they have moved farther north, so have the sharks, Skomal said.

The risk of a swimmer being attacked by a shark is minimal, and Cape Cod towns would like to keep it that way.

The last documented fatal great white shark attack in Massachusetts waters was in 1936, Skomal said. In 2012, a man bitten while swimming off Truro required 47 stitches and surgery to repair damaged tendons. In 2014, two young women kayaking off Plymouth were attacked, although neither was bitten.

Nathan Sears, the natural resources manager in Orleans, said the study is invaluable and is already prompting changes in how the town manages its beaches.

The town used to fly dangerous marine life flags — they have a picture of shark on them — only when they knew there was a shark in the area. Now, he said, they fly the flag every day during the tourist season.

"The fact that they have an eye on the situation from the air is crucial," he said. "And if they spot a shark in the swimming area, we'll close the beach."

It's March, 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.

I've featured a couple of recent stories below to support that assertion. The first is headlined "Santa Rosa got soaked in January, breaking rainfall records". Followed immediately by this subhead "Santa Rosa got a soaking in January with 18.96 inches of rain, breaking records that date back more than a century." Where "soaking" is gentle, hedges. Followed immediately by this quote:

It kind of blew (the record) out of the water,” said Steve Anderson, a National Weather Service meteorologist based in Monterey."

Where the best hedging the picked Illuminist insider quoted in the mainstream media article can manage is "kind of". Did he put his Dr. Dre headphones on again right after saying that?

His Fight-Club-buddy author friend then buried this data as far down in the article as possible:

"The 18.96-inch total easily topped the previous January record of 12.57 inches measured at the Sonoma County airport in 2010, Anderson said. Weather service records at the airport date back to 1999."

Where "Easily topped" hedges. When you "top off" a beer or a gas tank, that involves a small amount. "Topping" something implies adding something small on top, at the end. A "topping" is a thin layer of food on top of another food. In cards, "topping" involves a single card. The author hedges again by giving you the numbers, but not the percentage of the new record over the old, as doing so would have been more impactful. So I had to do the math. It's fifty percent higher than the previous record. Such records are usually set by tiny margins.

Who has ever seen rain records broken by fifty percent? Not me. And I'm guessing not the National Weather Service meteorologist based in Monterey. Who, you will also observe, doesn't say anything about "so much for the drought", or "this is great, great news". The California drought is, or was big news, in California, and nationally. To remain strictly silent on the breaking of that drought is very telling.

The second story below, from Oregon, says "The city of Salem has set a record for rainfall in February, with 13.29 inches of precipitation."

It goes on to accurately say "that number blew past the record of 13.01 inches of rain set in 1996." They go on to say "It's way above the normal total of 4.56 inches."  It's 2.1% above the previous record, and 191% above normal - they carefully avoided giving the percentages, as printing them would have been far more impactful, and so I had to do the math.

And, repeating the pattern of the first story, there's also no editorial content in this second example re: "continues the pattern of drought-breaking" or "this is great news". And certainly no mention of "maps against record rainfall we're seeing around the globe, and have been for the last three years or so." Just negative spin against the life giving rain: "Salem residents hoping for some dry weather are out of luck."

Because of programming laid down literally every day of our lives, many or most of us literally cannot "see" the patterns I'm documenting, here. I'm hoping that by documenting them down over time it will help break the programming.

I guess, to the programmed, this thread might appear to be the narrow, repetitive ravings of a mad person. The word "narrow" is my rescue, there, as the subjects we're discussing are minute, finite, narrow. There is, or there is not a drought. That drought is, or it is not artificially-created/augmented. That drought has or has not been broken. The media is, or it is not negatively hedging against that great news in a repetitive, formulaic manner.

The fact that we're having an academic conversation about such a simple subject shows you just how deep and strong programming can be.

But the drought has been broken, and I'm breaking the programming, right here, right now.

 

 

 

 

February 1, 2017 - California - Santa Rosa got soaked in January, breaking rainfall records

Santa Rosa got a soaking in January with 18.96 inches of rain, breaking records that date back more than a century.

“It kind of blew (the record) out of the water,” said Steve Anderson, a National Weather Service meteorologist based in Monterey.

January’s soggy onslaught also pushed the season total since Oct. 1 to 37.38 inches, more than one inch above the historical average of 36.28 inches for Santa Rosa. There are still eight months remaining in the rain year, Anderson said, noting that significant precipitation often falls not only during winter but also in March and April.

And more rain is on the way, with showers expected on Thursday and another storm due on Friday bringing heavy rain during the morning commute, Anderson said.

The weather is expected to dry out over the weekend, followed by more rain next week.

“We’re keeping an eye on that one,” Anderson said.

The storm door, shut for years during California’s five-year drought, has been blown open with force.

“It’s in the backyard somewhere,” he said.

Snow covered two-thirds of the Sierra Nevada Wednesday at an average depth of 41.6 inches and as much as 202.4 inches, or nearly 17 feet, according to the weather service.

The Sierra snowpack, source of a third of California’s drinking water, was at 177 percent of the historic average, the biggest in more than two decades.

A new round of storms is expected to dump up to 3 more feet of new snow in the Sierra by this weekend, the weather service said.

Sonoma and northern Marin County get their water from the Russian River watershed, independent of the Sierra supply.

In Santa Rosa, rain fell on 17 out of 31 days in January, including two seven-day-straight stretches of precipitation, according to the Weather Underground website.

The 18.96-inch total easily topped the previous January record of 12.57 inches measured at the Sonoma County airport in 2010, Anderson said. Weather service records at the airport date back to 1999.

Measurements for downtown Santa Rosa go back to 1909, and the record there was 18.45 inches.

Anderson said comparisons between downtown Santa Rosa and the airport technically aren’t valid because the measurement locations are eight miles apart.

An unofficial gauge in downtown Santa Rosa recorded 13.07 inches in January, the ninth wettest amount for that spot, he said.

There were no January rainfall totals available Wednesday for any other parts of Sonoma County.

Heavy rain early last month pumped the Russian River at Guerneville up to the 32-foot flood stage on Jan. 9, and it crested at 37.8 feet two days later, when water spilled a few inches over Occidental Road at the Laguna de Santa Rosa.

Some Guerneville residents paddled around in boats, but largely shrugged off the overflow.

“This is like a baby flood,” said Bruce MacDonell, whose home at the end of Neeley Road was high and dry, having been elevated years ago like many along the river.

The river hit its highest mark since 2006, when it rose to 42 feet during New Year’s storms that created the most damaging floods in recent memory.

 

March 1, 2017 - SALEM, Ore. (AP) — The city of Salem has set a record for rainfall in February, with 13.29 inches of precipitation.

The Statesman Journal reports Wednesday that that number blew past the record of 13.01 inches of rain set in 1996. (2.1% above the previous record - ed)

It's way above the normal total of 4.56 inches. (191% above normal - ed)

It was the second month this season that Salem set a record.

October's 11.25 inches was also the most rain during that month in recorded history.

Recorded totals go back to 1892.

Salem residents hoping for some dry weather are out of luck.

The forecast calls for wet weather for the next eight to 14 days.

People who got cancer from Monsanto's products are suing Monsanto. Included in the suit are internal e-mails saying:

"A less expensive/more palatable approach” is to rely on experts only for some areas of contention, while “we ghost-write the Exposure Tox & Genetox sections,” one Monsanto employee wrote to another. The names of outside scientists could be listed on the publication, “but we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak,” according to the e-mail, which goes to on say that’s how Monsanto handled the 2000 study."

Despite that open-and-shut case evidence, here you can see the Federal judge trying to keep the door open: "The judge said last month he’s inclined to require a retired EPA official to submit to questioning by plaintiffs’ lawyers who contend he had a “ highly suspicious ” relationship with Monsanto."

He's inclined to require. Slow-playing, keeping the door open.

You may have noticed that Monsanto recently collapsed in on itself and was absorbed the larger Bayer, the kingpin of all anti-life chemical companies on the globe at this time.

You can see how the fair-seeming, nattily-dressed, two-faced, sociopathic folks in charge are losing the battle step by step, day by day, in every nation on Earth.

The game's only just turned on them.

 

 

 

 

March 14, 2017 - Monsanto Accused of Ghostwriting Papers on Roundup Cancer Risk

Monsanto Co. was accused in court documents of ghostwriting scientific literature that led a U.S. regulator to conclude a key chemical in its Roundup weed killer shouldn’t be classified as carcinogenic.

Lawyers suing the company on behalf of farmers and others, who claim exposure to glyphosate caused their non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, alleged in a court filing which was partially blacked out until Tuesday that the Environmental Protection Agency “may be unaware of Monsanto’s deceptive authorship practice.”

The filing was made public by a federal judge in San Francisco handling the litigation. The judge said last month he’s inclined to require a retired EPA official to submit to questioning by plaintiffs’ lawyers who contend he had a “ highly suspicious ” relationship with Monsanto. The former official oversaw a committee that found insufficient evidence to conclude glyphosate causes cancer and left his job last year after his report was leaked to the press.

The plaintiff lawyers said in the filing that Monsanto’s toxicology manager and his boss were ghost writers for two of the reports, including one from 2000, that the EPA committee relied on to reach its conclusion.

Among the documents unsealed Tuesday was a February 2015 internal e-mail exchange at the company about how to contain costs for a research paper. The plaintiff lawyers cited it to support their claim that the EPA report is unreliable, unlike a report by an international agency that classified glyphosate as a probable carcinogen.

Monsanto Loses Bid to Keep Glyphosate Off List of Carcinogens

“A less expensive/more palatable approach” is to rely on experts only for some areas of contention, while “we ghost-write the Exposure Tox & Genetox sections,” one Monsanto employee wrote to another.

The names of outside scientists could be listed on the publication, “but we would be keeping the cost down by us doing the writing and they would just edit & sign their names so to speak,” according to the e-mail, which goes to on say that’s how Monsanto handled the 2000 study.

A company spokeswoman had no immediate response to a request for comment on the court filings.

The case is In re: Roundup Products Liability Litigation, MDL 2741, U.S. District Court, Northern District of California (San Francisco).

The fact that the people writing the story about citizens repairing potholes in Portland, Oregon "anarchists" tells you, and all the schoolchildren from the future, all ya'll need to know about the times we live in, here in 2017.

But they're good times, great times - because people are beginning to take personal responsibility for things again, after a generation or two or three of that sort of behavior going decidedly out of fashion. It was socially-engineered out of the breed, I'm afraid, by the fair-seeming, nattily-dressed, two-faced sociopaths who run things, who do not have our best interests at heart, as they profess.

The story is also cheering in that it documents the breaking of the great artificial drought 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 mistaken presume only carries cell phone traffic and weather radar data:

“It’s not safe for them because there is traffic on the streets and they can potentially put themselves at risk and the public at risk if the repair isn’t done properly,” said Dylan Rivera. Rivera says leave it to the pros. Just last Friday, Rivera said, city crews fixed more than 900 potholes. The work can only be done when it is dry."

While I'm stoked about the breaking of the drought, it's unclear to me how the "anarchist group" can fix the potholes, but the city cannot, if real reason is that the work can only be done when it is dry, as the city professes.

I read a succession article from Vermont some time ago, where someone fearfully said, sic, "what will we do without the Feds to support us?" and the reply was "we give them 75% of our money and they don't even fix the roads."

There's an article back in this thread about a town in Mexico where the quote for a new bridge was millions of dollars and a decade or so, and the citizenry quickly did it for tens of thousands. 

A friend of mine once said "we teach people how to treat us, Jeff", and I think that holds in this situation. We can think a different way, live a different way and the swindlers working the confidence game upon us will simply no longer be able to do so.

 

March 14, 2017 - Anarchist group repairing Portland potholes

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Masked anarchists are taking the city’s pothole problems into their own hands.

“I appreciate the effort,” said Eric Hollstein.

Hollstein lives on Southeast Salmon and his street is littered with one pothole after another.

“It’s frustrating for sure,” he said. “It makes a mess in the street.”

The pothole fixers have posted photos of their work on the Facebook page, Portland Anarchist Road Care.

“Great job trying to be a helpful citizen, but not necessarily successful at all times maybe,” said Hollstein.

Neighbor Tom Satchell could not be more impressed by the anarchists’ work.

“They don’t need to be masked,” said Satchell. “They’re doing a great job.”

The city does not see it like that. A spokesman for the Portland Bureau of Transportation says what the anarchists are doing is a bad idea.

It’s not safe for them because there is traffic on the streets and they can potentially put themselves at risk and the public at risk if the repair isn’t done properly,” said Dylan Rivera.

Rivera says leave it to the pros. Just last Friday, Rivera said, city crews fixed more than 900 potholes. The work can only be done when it is dry.

In fact, the bureau just listed a job opening for an asphalt raker.

“Every sunny day we get we’re sending additional crews out focusing on just potholes,” he said.

Until those potholes are patched you are urged to drive carefully.

“You can damage your car,” said Hollstein.

We connected with this anarchist group by email. They said they plan to continue patching potholes as long as they have the time and money.

March 17, 2017 - Dazzling bioluminescent event lights up Tasmania sea

Crowds gathered to experience the dazzling glow of a bioluminescence event that lit up beaches in Tasmania, Australia, this week.

The event, reportedly created by a living organism called Noctiluca scintillans as it feeds on plankton, caused the sea to illuminate with a bright neon-blue light.

A photographer captured footage of the natural phenomenon at the shore near George Town Tuesday as beachgoers moved their hands and feet in the glowing water.
