We don’t usually associate turkeys with the Maya people, but maybe we should. This ancient Mesoamerican civilization flourished from 1850 B.C. to 250 A.D. and stretched from what is now southeastern Mexico all the way down to Honduras in Central America. They were incredibly skilled mathematicians, calendar makers, builders and artists. And they were also the first to domesticate the turkey more than 2,300 years ago.

It has been over one month since the latest dangerous piece of legislation meant to infringe on Americans’ constitutional rights was introduced, and Congress is now moving forward with the bill that will have serious ramifications for all Americans by blatantly violating the freedoms guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment if it becomes law.

The USA Liberty Act has passed the House Judiciary Committee by a vote of 27-8, and as Congressman Justin Amash noted, all privacy advocates should be concerned about the overwhelming support the bill is receiving from Congress.

“The Liberty Act passed committee 27-8. It allows the government to search our private data without a warrant—in violation of the 4th Amendment,” Amash wrote on Twitter. “It’s another bill, like the Freedom Act, that furthers violations of our rights under the guise of protecting our rights.”

Citizens describe how their day lives have been disrupted as West Baltimore remains under police control, as per Baltimore Brew:

Two women walking down Franklin Street to get to their cars, parked blocks away because of the lockdown, complained that they had been harassed by officers.

 

“They know I live here. They’ve seen me come and go. But this one had to pat me down. He [the officer] went like this to my jacket, grabbing it,” said Shelly, 25, who asked that her last name not be used.

 

“They wanted to know where I had been. Why do I have to tell him that? It’s just me in my flip-flops trying to go to my own home.”

 

“We haven’t been able to get our mail for four days,” said the woman with her, Samantha, 50, who also asked not be identified. “Is the city going to pay the late fees on my bills?”

 

“It’s so sad what happened to the officer and I hope they catch whoever did it,” another woman said. “But this is really overboard. I’ve never seen anything like it.”

“You are not entitled to that information!” That’s what a staffer in Senator Markey’s office bluntly told me when I called to ask for help in identifying Members of Congress who hold dual citizenship.

Seems that’s a question no one wants to hear. The Internet sources are flaky, with only unreliable estimates for both House and Senate. So I telephoned the Washington, DC offices of my three Congressional representatives from Massachusetts to ask for their help in obtaining definitive data from the Congressional Research Service (CRS), which responds to Congressional offices, but not to the general public.

Before I delve into the connections I have uncovered, I would first like to say that for me each day is an adventure in understanding the blockchain – constantly uncovering new perspectives, finally wrapping my head around a technological term, or completely changing ideas and beliefs upon discovering new information.

I have come to see Bitcoin not as a currency, but as a form of value and rebellion against the central bankers and their overgrowing lust for power over our lives. Though fiat, just like every other currency, I saw a core energy of entrepreneurs, innovators, and everyday people sick of the same day, every day 9 – 5 monotony that separated Bitcoin from all of the other fear based fiat currencies.

Though I believe the concept of Bitcoin is unstoppable, I no longer believe Bitcoin itself will be the chisel that shatters the wall of centralization.

Everything going on around us; what we are aware of and unaware of all have their roots in Karma and all this karma has its roots in that conversation which took place in that waiting place on another plane, between the lifetimes. There are crusaders at work we are making up for being the violators of what they are presently crusading against. There are people working in Third World countries, atoning for conditions they previously created. There are sidewalk hookers who were formerly pimps. There are people having one bad run of seeming bad luck after another and this is all relevant to past actions. The simplest definition of Karma is, ‘the fruits of actions’. There are children that bad things happen to. There are people winning the lottery. There are people living in war zones and people born into tremendous prosperity and here is where the construct of karma can become incredibly complex. Sometimes there are people who have desired a certain experience for lifetimes and have industriously pursued it and desired after it. They paid their dues and the stage was set. Sometimes there are those who were furiously outraged at certain injustices… or most anything- injustices that weren’t injustices at all but went contrary to the perverted ambitions of a particular individual. They are given the opportunity to have the power to affect any theater in life BUT… they have to pay the going rate in blood, sweat and tears; sometimes over a long period. Anything is possible here. Imagine what it is like to find out how very wrong your agenda turns out to be, or the unexpected results that come about which the person never imagined could take place.

The Whole Story Here


In 1983 the British government created Chevening as an international award scheme aimed at developing what it calls “global leaders.” It is funded and directed by the United Kingdom’s Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) and includes both scholarships and fellowships for individuals selected by British embassies around the world.

The Chevening website itself states:

Chevening offers a unique opportunity for future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers from all over the world to develop professionally and academically, network extensively, experience UK culture, and build lasting positive relationships with the UK.

The website also states that (our emphasis):

Chevening Awards are an important element in Britain’s public diplomacy effort and bring professionals, who have already displayed outstanding leadership talents, to study in the UK. The objective of Chevening is to support foreign policy priorities and achieve FCO objectives by creating lasting positive relationships with future leaders, influencers, and decision-makers.

In other, simpler and more frank terms, Chevening is a means of producing agents of British influence through the indoctrination of foreigners involved in their respective nation’s media, politics, policy making and analysis.

And while Chevening has only been around since 1983, the tool of imperialism it represents is quite ancient.

Antibiotics

Will come a rough winter. A lot of people will be been sick. And truthfully, when people get sick, a lot of them call the doctor and get antibiotics. Luckily, there are lots of safe and effective natural antibiotic alternatives.

First, let’s look at the some of the reasons why we might not want to use antibiotics, and when they may not even be necessary.

Dangers of Antibiotics


| 07 Nov 2017 | The mother of a 10-year-old Edmonton boy who came down with diphtheria — potentially exposing his elementary school class to the disease — said her son is up to date on all of his vaccinations. [That’s likely how he got the disease in the first place.] Shewchuk’s son is a student at Evansdale Elementary School in north Edmonton. Edmonton Public Schools said it was notified by Alberta Health Services (AHS) on Friday about a case of cutaneous diphtheria at one of its schools. Shewchuk doesn’t know how her son contracted the disease, but said he has battled severe eczema [a condition likely caused by vaccines] since he was five months old, and that makes him more susceptible to certain illnesses.

Vaccinated child still gets the disease: Case of diphtheria confirmed at Edmonton elementary school


NASA to test ‘space lasers’ with latest launch (VIDEO)
An American aerospace firm is aiming to create 200 megabits per second (Mbps) connections in space using satellites equipped with lasers. The new satellites were launched on Sunday from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia.

If successful, this new tech could pave the way for networks of satellite-connected devices to send data, which will be useful for military, tech, and meteorological agencies, to and from space via laser connections.

The company, Orbital ATK, is sending its Cygnus spacecraft, complete with NanoRacks CubeSats satellites, to the International Space Station. NASA is hoping that the mission will highlight the importance of small sensor spacecraft to the future of space exploration.

There are two myths which are deeply imprinted in the minds of most US Americans which are extremely dangerous and which can result in a war with Russia.

The first myth is the myth of US military superiority.

The second myth is the myth of US invulnerability.

I believe that it is therefore crucial to debunk these myths before they end up costing us millions of lives and untold suffering.

The latest shooting outrage – this time in Texas, getting hard to keep track – has elicited the usual hysterical squeals for gun control from the usual suspects. They cite such outrages as definitively supporting their position whereas in fact they do nothing of the sort.

The Israeli spy who worked to cover up the sexual violence of media mogul Harvey Weinstein is actually 30-year-old Israeli Stella Penn Pechanac, the Daily Mail claims in a report on Wednesday.

Penn, who reportedly worked as an operative for intelligence agency Black Cube, duped actress Rose McGowan into meeting her and disclosing her memoirs. She met with McGowan under the alias “Diana Filip,” allegedly a women’s rights advocate from London, who worked as an investor at a firm called Rueben Capital Partners. She reportedly met with McGowan multiple times in New York and Los Angeles.’
