"Doublethink is the acceptance of or mental capacity to accept contrary opinions or beliefs at the same time, especially as a result of political indoctrination."

George Orwell

 

August 20, 2015 - Global warming has worsened California's drought - USA Today

California could also face nearly permanent drought conditions by the second half of this century, the study said.

April 14, 2017 - What “permanent drought”? New all-time rainfall record set for California

 

There are a lot of things that are great about the story that follows, including the fact that it's featured on a "What To Think" disinformation website featured by the search engines. As you read it, you'll notice that the bushy-tailed, ostensibly do-gooder author tells about the new all-time rainfall record set in California, but carefully avoids mentioning how it maps against record rainfall being seen all around the globe.

The deceptive, half-truth meme "atmospheric rivers" is tabled in the subhead as the driver. While I've 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.

You can use your personal discernment to come to your own conclusions.

The featured article tells us "DWR’s 5-station San Joaquin index is keeping pace with Water Year 1983’s record total of 77.4 inches in the region. Today’s total of 68.2 inches among the stations is 194 percent of the average precipitation recorded by today’s date during the water year and far exceeds the San Joaquin annual average of 40.8 inches."

Can you see how they did the math on the front end, but carefully omitted the percentage in the example of the San Joaquin? If you are hedging or stonewalling, you can't do it every time, all the time, but rather must pick your battles, so you don't tip your hand. So they ran with the softer, hedging "far exceeds", instead of the stronger "90 percent higher than the annual average of 40.8 inches", or "almost double the annual average of 40.8 inches." That's called careful hedging.

You'll see the same technique again here: "Today’s total surpassed the previous record of 88.5 inches recorded in the entirety of Water Year 1983. The region’s annual average is 50 inches." Notice how they, once again, omitted the percentage? I did the math - it's 79% above average.

While the vague, quasi-animistic "atmospheric rivers" is bravely put forth as the driver, the article can't and doesn't float any prattle about global warming, or the even-vaguer climate change, or, frankly, anything whatsoever about what, precisely, is causing, er, "atmospheric river increase". Propaganda has a lifespan, and the absence of those particular memes here is very telling, and inspiring. Because there's no place for these scoundrels to retreat from, here, beyond "us.-vs.-Poor Mother Gaia". 

For literally Millenia, the con, the "confidence game" had been "us-vs.-them", Americuh-vs.-Commies, Christians-vs-Arabs, ad infinitum. With picked Fight Club insiders sitting at the top of the control pyramids of both groups, pretending to be mad at each other in public and getting together for blood sacrifices in private. But, down over time, steadily-rising awareness led to less and less success with that method. For example, sixty years ago, Americans lined up to jump into landing craft to go kill Germans cruelly misled by a British double agent, but nowadays it's a much different story.

So they But went long with "everybody versus the planet", and now even that game is collapsing.

The same establishment who assures you that the Ether does not exist, at all, are the ones using that very medium to try to lay waste to Poor Mother Gaia on the down-low, while blaming it on you, and your car, and farting cows, and any and all other manner of plausible-deniability excuses.

But the game has turned on them, and I don't think the world is going to remain in the dark about the whole affair for very much longer.

In the meantime, revel in the great, epochal positive changes that are underway at every level of our reality: 

 

April 14, 2017 - What “permanent drought”? New all-time rainfall record set for California

Northern Sierra Precipitation Sets Water Year Record Atmospheric Rivers Pushed Total to 89.7 Inches since October 1

SACRAMENTO – Never in nearly a century of Department of Water Resources (DWR) recordkeeping has so much precipitation fallen in the northern Sierra in a water year. DWR reported today that 89.7 inches of precipitation – rain and snowmelt – has been recorded by the eight weather stations it has monitored continuously since 1920 from Shasta Lake to the American River basin.

Source: https://cdec.water.ca.gov/cdecapp/precipapp/get8SIPrecipIndex.action

Today’s total surpassed the previous record of 88.5 inches recorded in the entirety of Water Year 1983. The region’s annual average is 50 inches. California traditionally receives 30 to 50 percent of its annual precipitation from atmospheric rivers (ARs), long and relatively narrow “rivers in the sky” laden with moisture that blow in from the Pacific. The West Coast experienced 46 ARs between October 1 and March 31, the first six months of Water Year 2017. Nearly one-third of the total were “strong” (13) or “extreme” (3) ARs. DWR’s 5-station San Joaquin index is keeping pace with Water Year 1983’s record total of 77.4 inches in the region. Today’s total of 68.2 inches among the stations is 194 percent of the average precipitation recorded by today’s date during the water year and far exceeds the San Joaquin annual average of 40.8 inches.

The six-station index in the Tulare Basin, often called ground zero of California’s five-year drought, which officially ended in most of California on April 7, has recorded 178 percent of the amount of precipitation that normally falls by this date during an average water year. Total precipitation so far is 45 inches, about 1.5 times the average annual precipitation of 29.3 inches in the basin. The snow water equivalent of California’s snowpack is far above average throughout the Sierra Nevada — 176 percent of the April 13 average. DWR will conduct its final snow survey of the season on May 1 at Phillips Station in the Sierra 90 miles east of Sacramento.

The Ministry of Truth -- Minitrue, in Newspeak -- was startlingly different from any other object in sight. It was an enormous pyramidal structure of glittering white concrete, soaring up, terrace after terrace, 300 metres into the air. From where Winston stood it was just possible to read, picked out on its white face in elegant lettering, the three slogans of the Party:

WAR IS PEACE

FREEDOM IS SLAVERY

IGNORANCE IS STRENGTH

 

George Orwell, from "1984"

 

It's April, 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 example below to support it.

In the article, you'll see that the youth turkey season in Illinois this year was a new record. That means "the most, ever, in all history." You'll also see that they printed the numbers, but withheld the percentage of the increase from last season, and also from the old record, set in 2012. That's an example of what is called careful hedging - they're downplaying, softening the news, which goes badly off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all. So I had to do the math.

This year's Illinois youth turkey harvest is 46% larger than last year, and 19% higher than the previous record. Such records are usually broken by tiny margins.

The old record was set in 2012, right on the cusp of the great, epochal positive changes documented in this thread. So, "the most turkeys, ever, in history." And the records are recent, current...versus from back in, say, the 50's, or 40's, or whenever, before Poor Mother Gaia was, you know, dying, and all. 

So, right now, today, the world, the environment, the climate, are all in better shape than they've ever been, in history. And the hedging article withholds the percentages, and doesn't mention the fact that other record turkey harvests are taking place all over the globe, wherever there are turkeys. The defraying, tap-dancing article doesn't mention that such records are usually broken by tiny margins. You previously thought the article looked "normal" and "legitimate" because you'd been lulled to sleep by a fog of similar articles throughout your lifetime, because you'd never considered the subject critically, analytically. 

So, right now, today, the world, the environment, the climate, are all in better shape than they've ever been, in history. In the future, that won't be hard for people to grasp, as they read the statistics. But at this moment, currently, the fog of programming surrounding these subjects is so dense that we've reached a point where, for many or most of the populace, Black is White, Ignorance is Strength. So I have to point things out as if I were talking to grade schoolers.

And, while programming, conditioning, social engineering - call it what you will - may at times be effective, it is not some sort of eternal, all-powerful mechanism. It must be constantly reinforced, in much the same way as one will lose the ability to speak a second language if they don't use it. Which is why I'm breaking that programming down here on a daily basis, in the same repetitive way in which it was laid down.

The crucial advantage I have over the folks doing the social engineering is that I've got TRUTH on my side. And truth is stronger than lies, forever. 

My thread may be crushingly boring, simple, and repetitive, but those are the keys to its success. Well, the second two, anyway. My theses are very narrow.

The folks in charge have bet the ranch and the back forty that they can win the whole thing, based on a carefully spun web of lies. How do you think they feel, right now, as an inwardly-smirking minion reads this post out loud in some secret meeting room somewhere?

Make no mistake, those people live, and breathe, and have names and addresses, and put their pants on one leg at a time, just like the rest of us.

And my words are causing waves of change to crash through that very room, those very people, those very minds. Please consider sending them highest love energy as you read this.

And I would close by noting that, once growth and change occurs, it does not un-occur.

 

April 4, 2017 - Illinois youth turkey season preliminary harvest totals a record 1,541 birds

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. – Youth turkey hunters harvested a preliminary record total of 1,541 birds during the 2017 Illinois youth Turkey season.

The dates for this year’s season were March 25-26 and April 1-2. This was the first year two youth turkey hunting weekends were open for the entire state. Previously, there was one weekend dedicated for the north zone and one for the south.

In 2016, a total of 1,058 turkeys were harvested, combining both seasons and zones. The previous youth season record harvest was in 2012, when 1,300 birds were taken. This year, a total of 5,601 youth turkey permits were issued, including 106 permits for special hunt areas. Last year, 4,761 permits were issued, including 113 for special hunt areas.

Much of the state received rain during one or both days of the first weekend. However, it didn’t seem to slow the young hunters as they harvested 776 birds over those two days. Weather was more favorable overall for the second weekend and 765 birds were taken.

The story that follows was forwarded to me by a reader via Don, and I thank them for it. It's about teachers selling their lesson plans online, helping defray the fact that teachers are among the lower-paid people in our culture. I personally think they should be among the highest-paid, but obviously the folks who run thing generally disagree.

You can tell how much they disagree by the headline, "Million-dollar teachers: Cashing in by selling their lessons."

It's fairly subtle, because "cash in" is not, itself, pejorative:

"CASH IN[INTRANSITIVE] to use an opportunity to make a profit or gain an advantage
The Broncos failed to cash in as the game ended with the ball on the 10-yard line."

But cashing in on something is pejorative, has a negative connotation:

"cash in on:
They accused her of trying to cash in on her daughter’s fame."

"Million-dollar teachers" implies that the teachers quit their fine, well-paying jobs after stealing all the lesson plans, and are now living large. That's a lurid exaggeration, when the truth is that its underpaid teachers whose positions have been eliminated trying to keep their heads above water. The author even trots forth one example of someone who made, wait for it, over a million dollars, albeit over six years. Oh, and that's sales, which of course is not profit, nor, farther away, still, take-home. Presuming a 30% profit margin, that million in sales would be $300K in profit, over six years, for $50K a year. What's take-home on that, $30K and change? Read it again, "Million-dollar teachers". Lurid exaggeration, aggressive spin with a clear agenda.

You see the hedging and the anger, here, where the Mouthpiece-of-the-State author of the article leads with "educators", to imply that teachers are pissed about the turn of events: "But some educators worry the increasing monetizing of lessons will stifle the longstanding practice of teachers freely sharing their ideas."

But it's the folks at the top of the control pyramid who are bringing the pain on the people they're purporting to serve:

"A federal court in New York sided with the Cherry Valley-Springfield school district in 2004 after a suspended teacher tried to claim ownership of tests, quizzes and homework problems left behind in his classroom that he said were prepared outside normal hours."

Wow, I just researched that story - the school searched the teacher's filing cabinets during a suspension, and the teacher tried to argue in court that the search was unconstitutional. So it wasn't about them trying to sell their lesson plans, which is what the article is about. I believe the use of that example is what's called "reaching" on the author's part.

Trying to corner the market on documents that say "one plus one equals two" in a particular font or phraseology sounds like someone attempting to create and control a monopoly, don't you think? What, did education just become a vast profit center for our great nation? A profit center that the government must justly protect, for the good of all the citizenry?

Despite the queasy spin, I think this article is very cheering in that it shows yet another way how the internet, the free sharing of information, is bringing down the fair-seeming, two-faced, sociopathic few, both R and D, who for this moment still control the many by subterfuge, and how it's lifting up the populace.

It also shows how people are taking responsibility for themselves, versus laying back upon the Welfare State and taking what they're given.

Our current education system is modeled on one from Prussia, from the 1800's, and I think it could, er, use some improvement, based on my experience.

Thanks again to the reader who sent this in...

 

April 15, 2017 - Million-dollar teachers: Cashing in by selling their lessons

Miss Kindergarten is in the million-dollar club. So are Lovin Lit, the Moffatt Girls and about a dozen other teacher-entrepreneurs who are spinning reading, math, science and social studies into gold by selling their lesson plans online to fellow teachers around the world.

Despite worries from some educators, such online marketplaces are booming, driven by rising standards and the willingness of teachers to pay out of their own pockets for classroom-tested materials.

“I am so thankful and blessed that it came into my life and that my passion and career can kind of mesh into one,” says Miss Kindergarten, aka 32-year-old Hadar Hartstein, of Lake Forest, California, who says she has earned more than $1 million in sales over the past six years, enough to take this year and maybe the next few off from her teaching job to be with her newborn daughter.

Her more than 300 offerings on the popular Teachers Pay Teachers site range from free alphabet flash cards and a $1.50 Popsicle party counting activity to a $120 full-year unit on math and literacy, all of them widely promoted on her blog and social media accounts.

“You definitely have to look at it as another full-time job,” she says. “You have to put a lot of effort into it.”

Teachers Pay Teachers contends that it hit a milestone last year, when its 80,000 contributors earned more than $100 million, and that at least a dozen have become millionaires since the site launched a decade ago. Other major sites including Teachwise and Teacher’s Notebook, and recently such corporate players as Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Amazon, have launched sites of their own.

But some educators worry the increasing monetizing of lessons will stifle the longstanding practice of teachers freely sharing their ideas. And legal experts question whether teachers actually have ownership of the lessons they are selling.

For teachers buying the materials, however, it’s a major time saver, allowing them to reclaim the nights and weekends otherwise spent starting lessons from scratch, often for no more than the price of their morning coffee.

Ann Arbor, Michigan, middle school teacher Samantha Cucu said that when she first started teaching three years ago, she created her own materials but was swayed by colleagues who made a compelling argument: “Why are you reinventing the wheel?”

She has since bought about 120 resources and gotten 132 others from Teachers Pay Teachers’ free offerings.

“Sometimes they’re super-easy small purchases, like $1.20 here, $2.50 there, and sometimes they’re larger. I try not to spend over $15,” says Cucu who estimated that her prep time for school plummets from 20 to 30 hours a week to two hours if she can find what she needs online.

“It’s huge,” says Cucu, who has a year-old baby.

At Teachers Pay Teachers, teachers set their own prices for 2.5 million resources and give a commission to the site. With a $59.95 premium membership, the commission is 15 percent. With a free basic membership, it’s 40 percent.

“My first sale was 80 cents. It was the best 80 cents I’ve made in my entire life!” says Mary Beth Nerone, who has been stocking her online store, Brain Waves Instruction, on the site with writing, poetry and other exercises for three years after budget cuts eliminated her job as a middle-school language arts teacher near Rochester, New York.

“Some people are psyched and say I get Starbucks money each week ... some people get to a space where they can meet or surpass their teaching income,” Nerone says. “And some people get to a space beyond their wildest dreams of income.”

Teachers trust and support other teachers, says Hanna Hudson, editorial director of the We Are Teachers online bulletin board, and accessing individual resources from the web is less expensive and easier than going to the district for new textbooks or resources.

“Honestly, it’s going after the money that teachers are spending out of their own pockets on their classroom,” Hudson says.

But Bob Farrace, spokesman for the National Association of Secondary School Principals, says taking “proprietary rights over ideas and lessons” could disrupt the traditional collaborative atmosphere of schools. “You want teachers to collaborate and share ideas freely.”

In fact, some school districts have language in their teaching contracts that bar teachers from selling their lesson plans.

Some legal experts argue that the resources teachers produce while working for a school district may actually be the property of the school district.

Mark Bartholomew, who teaches copyright law at the University at Buffalo, says that without explicit contract language, the law looks at factors such as whether products were created within the scope of employment or on a person’s own time.

A federal court in New York sided with the Cherry Valley-Springfield school district in 2004 after a suspended teacher tried to claim ownership of tests, quizzes and homework problems left behind in his classroom that he said were prepared outside normal hours. The U.S. Court of Appeals agreed the district owned the materials because the teacher made them for his job.

“I never created anything that I was selling while in the classroom,” says “Miss Kindergarten” Hartstein. “As a kindergarten teacher, I rarely even had time to sit down and take a breath.”

Hartstein says she never looked at selling lessons as a path to riches but as a way for others to learn and benefit from her experience.

“If a teacher is already making a resource for her students and it’s super successful in her classroom, then why not post it for other students to use? And if you make something off of it, awesome.”

It's April, 2017, and crime rates are plummeting all over the globe. Since that statement directly contradicts what most of you are told by the media on a daily basis, I've appended a current example below to support it.

The title of the article hedges by saying "Homicide lull, drop in crime is progress", where "lull" implies it will crank right back up again. When it's been dropping steadily since 1991.

The subhead tee's up the local, micro-level Plausible Deniability excuses: "Gang arrests, End Gun Violence initiative making an impact so far this year"

Those thing are real, and actual, but don't take into account or mention the larger drops in crime being seen elsewhere across the globe, all in places where no 'end gun violence' initiative is taking place.

The article starts out with three Death-documentations, a "yes set" of three, to get your mind programmed on Death, fear and negativity.

But they can't stop the truth:

"But in the time since Jackson’s death — the rest of March and two weeks into April of this year — Savannah has not had a homicide, making that the longest period without one since April 2014. And other numbers are demonstrating a gradual drop in crime. March’s total violent crime was down by about 5 percent from February, and violent crime is down 15 percent compared to this point last year, according to the latest SCMPD crime numbers."

The world that reporters in every city in every nation on Earth write hedging articles in various languages in is changing, forever. And all those hedging reporters, and the people they work for, they're not changing. They do the same things, think the same way, work the same game.

It's not a "lull", as they hopefully suggest. It is, rather, a "disappearance", something we've all apparently collectively decided not to do, like three martini lunches, or chain-smoking in the hallway outside the baby nursery at the hospital.

It doesn't take me long to find these stories, each day, and, have you noticed, they're not stopping?

The establishment media accounts are studiously ignoring the trend. I've been documenting both the trend and its formulaic treatment in this thread for over three years, now.

Because a trend is for the moment ignored does not negate the fact that it's a trend.

I think ignoring trends is unwise, and ultimately self-negating.

 

April 15, 2017 - Georgia - Savannah officials: Homicide lull, drop in crime is progress

Gang arrests, End Gun Violence initiative making an impact so far this year

On March 6, 16-year-old Kevin Jackson was shot and killed on Crosby Street.

The day before, it was Saundra Thomas, 47, on East 34th Street.

On March 1, it was Lenoxki Smith, 33, on Oak Forest Drive.

It was shaping up to be the kind of month Savannah has become accustomed to. Jackson was the 10th homicide in the Savannah-Chatham police jurisdiction in 2017, and Savannah was outpacing its 2016 homicide rate — there were only seven homicides by March 6 last year.

Last year, Savannah-Chatham police investigated 50 homicides in its jurisdiction, and they recorded 53 in 2015. These were the bloodiest two years for Savannah since the early 1990s, when the Ricky Jivens Gang terrorized the streets.

But in the time since Jackson’s death — the rest of March and two weeks into April of this year — Savannah has not had a homicide, making that the longest period without one since April 2014. And other numbers are demonstrating a gradual drop in crime. March’s total violent crime was down by about 5 percent from February, and violent crime is down 15 percent compared to this point last year, according to the latest SCMPD crime numbers.

The three early March shooting homicides are on par with February’s total, but robberies are down 31 percent from February, and aggravated assaults are down 25 percent. The only Part I crimes that increased from February to March were rape and auto theft. Four rapes were reported in March compared to only one in February, and March’s auto theft total increased by three from February’s 72.

The lull in homicides is a welcome relief for the Savannah-Chatham police. In the 21 calendar months since July 2015, Savannah has maintained an average of 4.52 homicides per month. The average for the 21-month period before July 2015 was 2.85. The bloodiest calendar month came in October 2015, where police investigated 11 homicides.

Savannah-Chatham police chief Joseph Lumpkin said he attributes the recent drop in gun violence to good policing and community help.

“I believe the reduction in homicides and shootings is directly related to the hard work of all my officers, staff, our law enforcement partners and members of this community,” Lumpkin said. “We believe the totality of our endeavors as well as the vital efforts of our local, state and federal partners are making a positive difference in this community’s safety and lowering our overall violence rate. We are also working to establish a trusting, ‘shared responsibility’ relationship with all law abiding people in every neighborhood.”

Metro investigated 12 fewer aggravated assaults with guns in March than in February, which Lumpkin said plays heavily into the homicide count.

“Our focus is not just on reducing homicides but also shootings. In some cases, a millimeter may be the difference in a homicide versus an aggravated assault, it just depends on the path of the bullet.”

Lumpkin is right. Since 2013, the average number of homicides in Savannah per year has been, on average, 17.48 percent of total aggravated assaults with guns for that year.

 End Gun Violence: Step Forward

Metro’s answer to the rise in violent crime is its End Gun Violence: Step Forward initiative.

The initiative is a program that utilizes both local and federal resources to crack down on group and gang violence with a focus on neighborhood outreach. It targets the most violent members of groups and gangs — the ones responsible for a majority of the shootings and homicides in the city.

Though the Jivens Gang’s heyday has long since passed, Savannah still has an active gang community. Police spokeswoman Michelle Gavin said police are currently investigating 43 groups and 21 gangs in Savannah, and 60 percent of crime in 2016 was committed by gangs or groups.

End Gun Violence uses intelligence-led policing to hunt down the small group of individuals who commit the majority of violent crime.

“Our outstanding SCMPD police officers and their local, state and federal partners are utilizing Intelligence Led Policing principles to focus on these violent perpetrators. Intelligence-led policing is using specific intelligence to go after specific individuals with a laser focus who are involved in gangs, groups and gun violence,” Lumpkin said. “We target individuals, not communities or neighborhoods.”

End Gun Violence puts the “laser focus” on the most violent criminals, while giving minor offenders a chance to straighten up and fly right. Metro hosts call-ins, during which suspected offenders and their associates are urged to behave or face the consequences — being a member of the same gang or group as someone who commits gun violence can also result in charges.

Metro arrested 13 gang members from the Gangster Disciples on March 3. These arrests, which included charges ranging from murder to drug sales, came after police warned members and those affiliated with the gang to not cause social harm or participate in gun violence when the gang was called in on Nov. 1.

Seven days later, a member of the Gangster Disciples shot and killed another member, and police made the arrests.

“We are not only locking up violent criminals, but our commanders are meeting with the influencers of gang and group members,” Lumpkin said. “We urge those influencers — mothers, fathers, spouses, siblings, grandparents, etc. — to convince group and gang members to step away from the violence and life of crime.”

In March 2016, metro, along with agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives cracked down on violence and gang activity in Cann Park. The last of these 22 individuals were convicted in federal court on April 10.

Acting U.S. Attorney Jim Durham said on Monday that federal resources, working with state and local law enforcement, targeted the Cann Park neighborhood, where he said a very small group was committing violent crimes and engaging in gang activities.

Violent crime rates have fallen sharply in the Cann Park neighborhood since the March 2016 arrests and prosecutions, Durham said. Violent crime has dropped by 40 percent, aggravated assaults with a gun are down by 75 percent and “shots fired” calls to police have fallen by half.

Looking ahead

City officials say the turnaround in crime rates is the result of a long haul — one that is far from over. As the summer approaches, officials say there are new challenges.

“I think that public engagement coupled with a full staff police department has definitely made an impact,” said Savannah Alderman Van Johnson. “These are seeds that we started planting two years ago and they are starting to materialize… But I am cautiously optimistic because we know that there is still a fight…

“The challenge is that we know crime is prevalent in some communities more than others. So we need to make sure that we increase our efforts in those areas and utilize data-driven approaches.”

Savannah Mayor Eddie DeLoach, who ran on a crime-crackdown platform, says the crime rate drop is only the beginning.

“The crime rate going down is a combination of things with having enough officers in place, End Gun Violence and people having jobs,” DeLoach said. “There has been the task force that concentrates in isolating in those people engaging in ‘risky behavior.”

“We are going to continue doing whatever the chief needs to bring crime done. We are going to keep supporting him and follow the city manager’s lead.”

And that includes finding funding for more law enforcement, DeLoach said. The city is undergoing a Berkshire study to “get a better handle on crime numbers that is needed in town and unincorporated Chatham,” he said.

“This is so that we can see build some kind of budget and something on the long-term,” he said. “We’re expecting to see those results soon.”

But the fight for police resources is nothing new. April 2016 was the first time in nearly two decades that the department had been fully staffed with about 600 officers, easing the case load for detectives and putting more manpower on the streets after a long standing period of “aggressive recruiting,” Lumpkin said.

And with summer only weeks away, keeping crime numbers down will mean keeping the city’s youth busy, DeLoach said.

“That’s why we started the Summer 500 program,” he said. “I was a kid at one time and I had a lot of idle time, so I know it’s easy to get in trouble. So we need to do what we can do to get kids busy by getting them in a place in the private sector any business in Savannah.”

July 25, 2013 - U.K. - Drug use falls but laughing gas trend revealed

Six per cent of young adults used nitrous oxide, or laughing gas, in the last year

The proportion of adults who say they use illegal drugs has fallen to its lowest level since records began, a Home Office study suggests.
Just over 8% of adults - around 2.7m people - admitted taking an illegal drug during the last year, according to the Crime Survey for England and Wales.

This compares with 11.1% in 1996 and 12.3% at its peak in 2003/04.

But the report found 6% of young adults used nitrous oxide - or laughing gas - in the last year.

 

December 23, 2016 - Teen Drug Use Continues to Fall While E-Cigarettes Gain Popularity

Use of alcohol and cigarettes are down for the vulnerable age group, while marijuana rates remain steady.

the number of teens who reported consuming alcohol in the previous month has been steadily declining since the '90s. This year, 7.3 percent of 8th graders, 19.9 percent of 10th graders and 33.2 percent of 12th graders claimed to have consumed alcohol in the past month.

Abuse of the opiate painkiller Vicodin fell from 7.5 percent among 12th graders to 2.9 percent since 2012, showing a striking decline as similar rates for adults went up across the country. (They gave you the numbers, but wouldn't say "fell 4.5% since 2012", as doing so would have been more impactful, so I had to do the math - ed)

Cigarette use has shown an even more precipitous decline among teenagers that continued this year. Only 2.6 percent of 8th graders, 4.9 percent of 10th graders, and 10.5 percent of 12th graders reported using cigarettes in the previous month.

 

January 3, 2017 - Canada - City of Surrey crime numbers falling: RCMP (headline carefully omits the percentage - ed)

Quarterly reports for Criminal Code offences in Surrey have been posted on the city’s website since 2012. As of the end of 2016’s third quarter, Surrey had posted a 5% drop overall, with theft over $5,000 falling by 40% and robbery by 38%. Business break and enters have also dropped substantially (-21%), but residential break and enters (12%) and prostitution (119%) both increased.

Mayor Linda Hepner said she credits an increase in the number of police officers (100 have been added to the force since she took office two years ago) and Surrey’s Integrated Resources for Investigations and Safety (IRIS) project, which is a registry that records the location of security cameras owned by businesses and residents in Surrey, as factors in the decrease.

 

March 15, 2017 - Canada - VANCOUVER (NEWS 1130) – Despite a busy week for Vancouver Police in the Downtown Eastside, the data shows violent crime is actually down across the city.

Between Jan. 1 and Mar. 11, VPD statistics show reported sex assaults dropped 28 per cent while robberies dipped 17 per cent compared to the same period last year. General assaults were up one per cent.

“The trend city-wide we’re seeing a trend down with violent crime for all of the violent crime offences,” Staff Sgt. Randy Fincham says.

Murders are up for the same period, however Fincham warns because murders happen much less frequently than other violent crimes, any additional cases can significantly impact percentage increases. So far this year Vancouver has seen seven homicides. There were 12 murders in all of 2016, which is down from 15 the year before. (that's a 20% drop - they gave you the numbers, but carefully omitted the percentage, as including it would have been more impactful - ed)

 

March 18, 2016 - Seattle, WA - Seattle saw drop in crime from 2016, report says (headline carefully avoids using a percentage - ed)

Crime is down in Seattle across most reported categories, according to a Seattle Police Department report released Wednesday.

The most recent SeaStat report compares crime data from 2016 and 2017 that occurred in Seattle between January 1 and March 15. These include everything from vehicle theft and arson to homicide and aggravated assault, among other crimes committed against both person and property.

The SeaStat report is a collection of data that helps the department allocate its resources and more effectively combat serious crime.

The report shows that crime fell in all categories but two: domestic violence and arson. Across the board, crime in the observed categories was reduced by 14 percent since the same period of time last year, going from 8,878 total crimes to 7,643.

Seattle saw just two cases of homicide between January and mid-March this year, a marginal decrease from the six cases it saw last year. (a 67% decrease, described as 'marginal', heading for the "hedging hall of fame" in this thread - ed)

April 10, 2017 - United Arab Emirates - Sharjah crime rate drops by more than 7 per cent 

Sharjah Police seek to cooperate with all segments of society by encouraging them to report negative activities

Crimes rate in Sharjah has been reduced by 7.24 per cent during the first quarter of this year in which 261 crimes of various type have been recorded at various police stations in the emirate.

Col. Khalifa Kalander, director of the Comprehensive Police Stations Department, said that the Ministry of Interior attributed the drop in crimes to efforts exerted by Sharjah Police in taking preventive measures and spreading awareness on respect for the law, as well as strengthening cooperation between police and members of society.

 

April, 10, 2017 - Brooklyn, NY - Mayor touts neighborhood policing as crime drops (headline carefully avoids using a percentage - ed)

After announcing "substantial progress" in crime reduction at the NYPD's 123rd Precinct on Staten Island, Mayor Bill de Blasio credited the program with inspiring more trust between New Yorkers and police officers.

"Overall, we believe it's the right path for public safety," the mayor said.

The program has been rolled out to about half of the city's police precincts. It involves assigning officers to the same neighborhoods and the same shifts regularly, in the hope that officers and residents will get to know and understand one another.

According to city statistics, major crimes have decreased by 6.2 percent in the first quarter of this year, compared to the same span in 2016. Shootings have dropped by nearly 30 percent, and murders have gone down by 8.51 percent.

 

April 20, 2017 - Alexandria, VA - Crime in Alexandria decreases, but violent crimes persist

 

April 20, 2017 - Philippines - North Mindanao crime drops 32.5%

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY—The crime volume in Region 10 or Northern Mindanao has dropped 32.5 percent year on year as police intensified its law enforcement operations and Operational Plan Double Barrel gained momentum.

Carlos, thanks for this great addition...polls are usually spun or slanted at least a bit these days, so the great news here is that either, A, it's an honest percentage, or, B, the number is even closer to 100% if it's been slanted in the way I've cynically or perhaps realistically suggested.

What's signal about it, beyond the fact that it's "er, everybody" who doesn't trust the politicians, is the fact that there's no mention of conservative or liberal, R or D gamesmanship in play. Everybody's getting my basic thesis, which is that those buckets or subgroups are simply used by the utterly-internetworked folks in charge to divide and conquer, both R's and D's, both liberals and conservatives, et al.

I think crime is decreasing around the globe for multiple reasons. One of which is criminals, themselves, are becoming, en masse, less criminal. And another reason is that the populace is deciding to push back, more and more, when they see crime, and the criminals know that. I think it's mostly A, but there's a lot of B, also.

I'm bringing it up because I'm among the 80-plus percent who've subjectively concluded that ALL politicians are criminals. Once you realize there's a criminal in your midst, you have two choices, turn your head, or confront the situation. As the populace travels all the way from "Denial" down to "Acceptance" in this matter, I'm guessing that the majority are not going to turn their heads. So the criminals will have to run a different game, or get out of town. Only trouble for them is, they've got no other game, and it's every town on EARTH.

Their time among us is coming to and end, and it's happening right now.

 

 

 

It's April, 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.

A story from Wisconsin is headlined "The numbers are in for the first day of the 2017 sturgeon spearing season."

That's some extreme hedging. In that, the numbers are in, all right, but there's carefully been no mention of them in the headline. 

Extreme hedging continues in the lead sentence: "On Lake Winnebago, the haul was 198 fish on the first day. That's up from last year when the first day haul was 84."

Yes, that's "up from last year", my fine friends, but you neglected to mention it's well more than double year's numbers. We don't know exactly how far above last year's numbers it is, because they carefully withheld the percentage, as including it would go seriously off message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying and all. So I had to do the math. It's 135%.

The hedging continues:

"Overall, I have to say things are off to a good start. The highlight of today is the size of some of the fish harvested. Of the 198 fish harvested from Lake Winnebago, 15 were 100 pounds or larger," Koenigs said.

Not "I'm thrilled to say" or "I'm happy to say" or "I'm excited to say", and certainly not "I'm amazed to say." No. I have to say. And did you notice the fish are plentiful, and huge?

Huge, like the "Fat" State Record burbot caught in Minnesota:

"...a 19-pound, 11-ounce eelpout (aka burbot, aka lawyer, lingcod, cusk and a host of other unbecoming nicknames) caught by Brent Getzler of Roosevelt. Measuring 33 inches long with a portly waistline of 23 7/8 inches, the fish has officially been entered into Minnesota’s record books as the largest of its kind ever caught by hook and line, the Department of Natural Resources announced Thursday."

No mention in the article of last year's day-two numbers - wouldn't want that comparison being made! No mention of what drove the doubling of fish. No mention of record fish numbers around the globe.

Cheeringly, there's also no floating of the idea that "warmer waters are cooking up thousands of more fish", no suggestion that it was part of "boom-bust cycles driven by climate change (shake tattered voodoo doll, dance about). No, propaganda has a lifespan, after which it will return back harmfully on the user. Unfortunately for these guys, this shit's well past its sell-by date, and they've got no other confidence games to run, anymore.

An article such as this used to appear "normal" to you, until you began studying the subject critically. Now you can see the article is much more complex than it pretends to be, and is part of a larger, er, public relations effort.

The previous State burbot record was set in 2012, just five years ago. Not back in the 40's or 50's, before Poor Mother Gaia was really, you know, dying? No, rather just in recent years. It was set in 2012, right when things started to turn for the better in our world, in a huge way.

The folks in charge had a timetable to keep, 2012 was "the end of the Mayan calendar", the end of the world as we knew it. I think they had a vast, interlayered programme underway to short-circuit, to forestall the great positive changes we're witnessing right now. Every trick in the book - furious aerosol operations around the globe, Death energy weaponry in every city and town, drought creation, storm steering and augmentation, genetically-engineered Death foods, food guidelines custom-designed to harm, and horrible, species-killing pesticides. All coming together, at once. 

Unfortunately for them, Orgonite came into being right around the same time, and those simple, inexpensive devices are drawing down and transforming the Death energy level in the larger environment to the point where great, epochal positive changes are underway at every level of our reality.

And those changes are increasing in speed and magnitude.

 

September 16, 2016 - Missouri - Crooked Creek Outing provides record numbers of fish!

Thursday, September 1st was another float and fish outing for 6 club members with their kayaks. Some of the members caught nearly 50 fish each for the day. A lot of small mouth bass were caught along with lots of pan fish. This was a 5 mile float that went from the Snow Access to the new George’s Creek access. This new access when totally completed will have a large parking area, concrete boat ramp and restrooms. They already have a good start on it. Pictures of the float are shown below.

 

January 5, 2017 - Minnesota - Fat burbot: MN man sets record for biggest eelpout. (That’s a fish.)

Slimy. Fat. And, in its own special way, beautiful.

All are apt descriptions for a 19-pound, 11-ounce eelpout (aka burbot, aka lawyer, lingcod, cusk and a host of other unbecoming nicknames) caught by Brent Getzler of Roosevelt. Measuring 33 inches long with a portly waistline of 23 7/8 inches, the fish has officially been entered into Minnesota’s record books as the largest of its kind ever caught by hook and line, the Department of Natural Resources announced Thursday.

Getzler’s girther was caught while ice fishing for walleyes, using an orange jigging spoon tipped with a minnow on Minnesota’s waters of Lake of the Woods on Dec. 19. The previous record ‘pout was 19 pounds, 8 ounces, set in February 2012, also on Lake of the Woods, by Aaron Guthrie of Bemidji.

 

February 11, 2017 - Wisconsin - LAKE WINNEBAGO (WLUK) -- The numbers are in for the first day of the 2017 sturgeon spearing season.

On Lake Winnebago, the haul was 198 fish on the first day. That's up from last year when the first day haul was 84. 

Sunday marked the second day of the season with 115 fish coming from Lake Winnebago and 60 fish from the upriver lakes.

Sandra Schumacher speared a sturgeon that came in at 154.7 pounds and 78.5 inches on Lake Winnebago.

Day two of sturgeon spearing season:

"That brings the season totals to 313 from Lake Winnebago and 183 from the Upriver Lakes," Koenigs said."Overall, I have to say things are off to a good start.

The highlight of today is the size of some of the fish harvested. Of the 198 fish harvested from Lake Winnebago, 15 were 100 pounds or larger," Koenigs said.

The story that follows is so hilariously short. In that it's forbidden from mentioning what's driving the great increase of life, and from connecting that localized example with others around the globe:

 

Wildflower 'super bloom' visible from space

26 April 2017

An explosion of wildflowers has covered the deserts of California, surpassing previous blooms in its enormous scale.

Satellite imaging startup Planet Labs has captured shots of the bright spectacle from space.

That's really it! That's the entirety of the article. The title hedges, says "bloom visible", but doesn't mention it's beyond anything anyone's ever seen. They use a tight-lipped "surpassing previous blooms" to describe that.

Put a fork in them, these guys are done.

"Now arrived Dunois from the city, and plunged through the battle on his foam-flecked horse and galloped up to Joan, saluting, and uttering handsome compliments as he came. He waved his hand toward the distant walls of the city, where a multitude of flags were flaunting gayly in the wind, and said the populace were up there observing her fortunate performance and rejoicing over it, and added that she and the forces would have a great reception now.

"Now? Hardly now, Bastard. Not yet!"

"Why not yet? Is there more to be done?"

"More, Bastard? We have but begun! We will take this fortress."

"Ah, you can't be serious! We can't take this place; let me urge you not to make the attempt; it is too desperate. Let me order the forces back."

Joan's heart was overflowing with the joys and enthusiasms of war, and it made her impatient to hear such talk. She cried out—

"Bastard, Bastard, will ye play always with these English? Now verily I tell you we will not budge until this place is ours. We will carry it by storm. Sound the charge!"

"Ah, my General—"

"Waste no more time, man—let the bugles sound the assault!" and we saw that strange deep light in her eye which we named the battle-light, and learned to know so well in later fields.

The martial notes pealed out, the troops answered with a yell, and down they came against that formidable work, whose outlines were lost in its own cannon smoke, and whose sides were spouting flame and thunder.

We suffered repulse after repulse, but Joan was here and there and everywhere encouraging the men, and she kept them to their work. During three hours the tide ebbed and flowed, flowed and ebbed; but at last La Hire, who was now come, made a final and resistless charge, and the bastille St. Loup was ours. We gutted it, taking all its stores and artillery, and then destroyed it."

It's April, 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 the "Poor Mother Gaia is Dying, Crushed by the Virus-Like Burden of Mankind", I've appended multiple recent examples below to support it.

If "increased acreage and new varieties maturing" was part of why Washington State red raspberry growers grew a record crop this year, why does the Illuminist-shill talking head quoted in the article say "we were a little shocked by the numbers at the end of the year"? What's particularly funny is that he's hedging, even there, in that he's "a little shocked."

"Shocked" is, of course, a companion to the meme words "mystery", "baffled" and "puzzled", which are used, among numerous other similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything. The Washington State Red Raspberry Commission Executive Director studies berries for a living, please recall, and would or should be well aware of record berry harvests of other sorts around the globe. Like these, which it took me seven seconds, or perhaps five, to locate:

Aug 2, 2016 - Michigan blueberries headed toward record harvest, grower says ...

October 21, 2016 - Cranberry harvest could break record - Brownfield Ag News

You'll notice in the red raspberry article that they print the numbers, but carefully withhold the percentage of the increase over the old record, as including it would have been much more impactful, and go seriously off-message re: Poor Mother Gaia dying, and all. So I had to do the math. It's eight percent higher than the previous record, which was set just three years ago, within the three years covered by this thread.

The top Raspberry guy in the entire state would know, of course, that "planted area increased 8%, resulting in an 8% increase in production." Only it didn't, which is why he said it generally, to put you off the scent, vs. specifically, as an honest and straightforward Raspberry thought-leader would.

You've been tirelessly conditioned to think that Fight Club members would think, talk and act like Dr. Evil in the Austin Powers films, and so you literally can't see them when they are lying to you straight-up about the raspberries. It's how the con WORKS - you have confidence in them, they have gained your confidence through subterfuge. To them, it's a "confidence game". And you are their rube, their sucker.

The tirelessly-asserted "increased acreage" canard cannot hold back the truth 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.

Which is why "Morocco expects its ce­real harvest this year to hit 10.2 million tonnes, about triple the previous season and close to 2015’s record, thanks to abundant rainfall..."

Records in 2015, and 2017, records within the three years of great, epochal positive changes documented by this thread. 

Do you think appending bitter hedging after good news is in any way an effective strategy, long-term? Here's an example: "Western Washington’s red raspberry farmers grew a record crop this year, though the payoff may be no better than from last year’s drought-diminished harvest."

You can tell it's a Black magic spell by the use of may. It hasn't happened, it may happen. They want it to happen, are conjuring it to happen. They're casting a spell, at you, the reader.

You've been told since you were a child that the hedging is in that sentence is there because "bad news sells." That's a baldfaced lie, concocted by the people who control the Media, and who for this moment still control YOU. In addition to hedging, that italicized section also took care to use the word drought, as the entire article is part of a larger, er, public relations effort.

Propaganda, wordcraft, neurolinguistic programming, call it what you will, can only spin - it can't change, it can't transform. In this case it's part of a feeble rearguard action which will soon turn to rout, as the public awakens to the positive changes, and figures out exactly why things weren't doing so good on this globe, previously.

We're leaving the old world behind - leaving behind forever the people who have ruled us through subterfuge, the people who, for literally Millenia, built and maintained and expanded their Death energy network, what they sometimes call their "Great Work of Ages." 

In the meantime, revel in the great positive changes that are underway at every level of our reality. And, if you haven't already done so, please consider distributing simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices where you live and work today, or sponsor a gifter, perhaps even though a vehicle such as this forum.

 

November 10, 2016 -Washington red raspberry growers harvest record crop

Western Washington’s red raspberry farmers grew a record crop this year, though the payoff may be no better than from last year’s drought-diminished harvest.

Good weather, increased acreage and new varieties maturing helped boost production to 78.2 million pounds, Washington Red Raspberry Commission Executive Director Henry Bierlink said.

The yield surpassed the previous record of 72.4 million pounds set in 2014.

We were a little shocked by the numbers at the end of the year,” Bierlink said.

 

April 23, 2017 - Morocco - Meknes - Morocco expects its ce­real harvest to hit 10.2 million tonnes, about triple the previous season and close to 2015’s record, thanks to abundant rainfall, Moroccan Agriculture Min­ister Aziz Akhannouch said.

 

April 24, 2017 - Indiana - Record deer harvest for 2016 in Owen

Highest antlered deer season since 2009

Hunters harvested a record number of antlered deer from Owen County in 2016, surpassing 800 bucks for the first season since 2009.

It's April, 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 appended a current article below to support that assertion, which tells us about the most rain ever, in history, in Seattle this year. They tell you "the previous record was 44.5 inches (113 centimeters) of rain for the October 2015 to April 2016 period. The normal amount of rain during that period is usually 30.9 inches (79 centimeters)."

Can you see how they gave you the previous record, but then only a reference to "normal", and no mention of rainfall total for the new record? That's because they're slicing it up, compartmentalizing it, making it harder to see. Usually, they give you the numbers, and make you do the math, but here, they took it a step even farther.

The article continues: "Seattle also set a record number for wet days from October through April. They are classified as days with at least 0.01 inches (0.3 centimeters) of precipitation. The city had 144 wet days from October through April and only five dry days so far this month."

Did you notice how this time they told you what the new record was, but carefully didn't mention the wet-day total for the old record was? Same technique, twice in succession! Nor in this case do they mention the percentage of the new record above the old. There's also no mention of what's driving the historically-unprecedented rainfall. Nor is there any mention of record rainfall being seen around the globe.

They've been doing this for so long and we are conditioned so thoroughly that we literally can't see these omissions when we read these articles. We just see "normal news articles."

Unless we study the matter for a day or two. Wouldn't you agree that this isn't the sort of curriculum it would take four years of schooling to get through? Or at least get the basic gist of?

"The few control the many via pyramidally-architected organizations in which many duped rubes lower down are fleeced by a few fair-seeming, two-faced sociopaths up at the top."

Not a complex assertion. So our facing of these truths isn't a matter of intellect, it's rather a matter of the heart, nay, of the spirit, I would suppose.

 

April 25, 2017 - Seattle Crushes Rain Record, While Rival Portland Wet Too

Soggy Seattle has broken another rainfall record, and rival Portland has inched closer to smashing its own record.

In Seattle, the previous record was 44.5 inches (113 centimeters) of rain for the October 2015 to April 2016 period. The normal amount of rain during that period is usually 30.9 inches (79 centimeters).

In the Pacific Northwest, cold-weather systems move through the region with dry breaks in between. McFarland said "we're missing those breaks."

The winter storm season was notable for back-to-back weather systems that were slightly wetter and warmer than normal, he said.

Seattle also set a record number for wet days from October through April.

They are classified as days with at least 0.01 inches (0.3 centimeters) of precipitation. The city had 144 wet days from October through April and only five dry days so far this month.

Some parts of Washington state have had it much worse than Seattle.

Quillayute Airport near the town of Forks along the state's northwestern Pacific coast has received 116.1 inches (294.9 centimeters) of rain since Oct. 1.

One resident of the Pacific Northwest, however, took a more practical attitude toward the never-ending wetness. Valerie Bass moved to Oregon 43 years ago for college from Southern California and stayed. Now, she's so used to the rain she doesn't use an umbrella.

"There has been quite a bit of rain," she conceded. "As long as we don't have to shovel it, right?"

“Traité de la Vérité de la Religion Chrétienne” by Jacques Abbaye, 1684

 

It's April, 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 example below to support it.

It's from Maryland, and is headlined "DNR: Survey Shows Highest Number Of Female Spawning-Age Crabs In Reported History."

With the highest praise, I note that they printed the percentage of the increase, year over year: "The spawning female stock increased 31 percent, from 194 million to 254 million, exceeding the healthy target level of 215 million for the first time since 2010."

Increased by a third, basically - well, what drove this amazing increase, in which you can literally see the needle moving? “This is testament to the state’s adaptive and effective management of the fishery.

So good fisheries management led to a population rise of almost a third. Can you see how the same local, plausible-deniability excuses are used continuously, in all of these articles, over a multi-year period? And can you see how the larger body of positive changes we're documenting and discussing here are never mentioned in any of them?

Don't forget, this thread is comprised of articles from all over the world. It is perhaps the clearest documentation to date of the "Some Big Conspiracy" that someone would notice that everyone agrees doesn't exist.

Propaganda is deployed in an attempt to change the course of what's going on. It's an attempt to control the behavior of a large subset of the populace. They wish it would magically control ALL of the populace, all of the time.

This thread's documentation of a global propaganda campaign of a certain slant at once unmasks the conspirators, and undoes whatever forward progress the campaign was enabling for them - in fact it pushes them back further than if they hadn't attempted it. But I really do think that what goes around comes around.

When I was a kid, the Chesapeake was dying. I watched it. James Michener wrote all about it. Now, with my dad who took me to the Chesapeake still with us, there are crab records being set, most ever, in history.

It's wondrous. It seems magical, but the transformation is being driven by a simple, ubiquitous technology. By simple, inexpensive Orgonite devices, distributed about the globe in a way that is transforming and undoing the global Death energy matrix so patiently built, architected and maintained by the folks who are about to no longer be in charge, all the way back to Babylon, and before.

They started thousands of years ago, with stone pillars set up at key points on the Earth's energy grid. They'd all perform human sacrifices at the base of all those pillars at key times on certain days, to drive Death energy into the Earth grid, in a unified way. Their network has, er, gotten a lot bigger and more complex since then.

Arthur C. Clarke once said "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable from magic." Orgonite continuously transforms what Wilhelm Reich called Dead Orgone Radiation into "Positive Orgone Radiation". And the great, epochal positive changes we're in the midst of are a result of the larger environment's return to the way it always was, before the Death energy network slowly and invisibly degraded it to near collapse. Now do you understand why it's important for them to have you think "there's no such thing as the Ether?"

But it's over for them, now. The revelation of their role in this horrible gambit will be their undoing. Please consider sending them highest love energy as you read this.

And, 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 a vehicle such as this forum.

 

April 19, 2017 - DNR: Survey Shows Highest Number Of Female Spawning-Age Crabs In Reported History

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The 2017 Blue Crab Winter Dredge Survey shows that there has been a surge in spawning-age female crabs.

Their population has reached the highest level ever recorded in the 28-year history of the baywide survey. The spawning female stock increased 31 percent, from 194 million to 254 million, exceeding the healthy target level of 215 million for the first time since 2010.

The survey also indicates the total crab population has slightly decreased due to what the Department of Natural Resources calls, “lackluster recruitment.”

“Blue crab reproduction is naturally highly variable due to the complex life cycle of the animal,” the DNR survey summary says. “Tiny, larval blue crabs spend the first part of their lives in the Atlantic Ocean and rely heavily on favorable currents, temperatures and winds to bring them into the Chesapeake Bay, where they grow. Optimal conditions do not occur every year, so a decrease in the number of young crabs this year was neither unexpected nor unprecedented.”

However, “despite the modest number of young crabs, the total population remains stable and the number of spawning age females – a major scientific benchmark for the health of the species – rose,” fishing and boating services director David Blazer said. “This is testament to the state’s adaptive and effective management of the fishery.”

The overall population of crabs was estimated at 455 million, the 11th highest level recorded by the survey.

But while the adult female segment increased, the adult male stock decreased 16 percent.

“We will now discuss the survey results with the Blue Crab Industry Advisory Committee and Tidal Fisheries Advisory Commission to determine next steps,” Blazer said. “Any adjustment, be it catch limit or season length, will only be considered after we receive input from all parties involved.”

In the annual survey, biologists use dredge equipment to capture, measure, record and release blue crabs at 1,500 sites throughout the bay from December through March. Crabs tend to bury in the mud in the winter, which makes it possible for scientists to develop accurate estimates.

It seems my view that the few control the many via pyramidally-architected organizations in which many duped rubes lower down are fleeced by a few fair-seeming, two-faced sociopaths up at the top is quite mainstream:
