Citizens Of Maui, Hawaii: Petition To Ban GMOs Ceremony.

“The exact measure of the progress of civilization is the degree in which the intelligence of the common mind has prevailed over wealth and brute force; in other words, the measure of the progress of civilization is the progress of the people.”

– George Bancroft (1800-1891) American historian

ocean77On April 7, 2014, the citizens of Maui County in Hawaii turned in their over 11,000 signatures calling for a ballot referendum to ban genetically modified organisms (GMOs) from their region. The first speaker at a ceremony to mark the occasion noted that Jackson County, Oregon overcame $500,000 spent by genetic food manufacturers to pass a ban on GMOs in that region. He tells the men, women, and children in front of their government building that, since GMOs and their pesticides have come to Maui, the people’s disease rates have increased, and people are dying in higher numbers from cancer.

Another academic points out that he has never been asked to sign any consent form to allow GMOs and chemical pesticides in Maui County, just as every person who receives a flu shot does. He tells his fellow citizens that “we have the right to be heard on this.” An elderly doctor tells the people of Maui that after decades of poisoning the land, “at some point you have to stop poisoning the soil.” His view is that releasing life-forms into the environment is “an extremely risky experiment”, and that “we are coming to realize that we are that experiment.”

He says that scientists around the Earth – from South America, China, Europe, Russia –  are producing and publishing studies showing the harmful consequences of eating genetically modified foods. In those and other regions, men and women are becoming more and more aware of the negative impacts of GM food products; of genetically living modified organisms.

A local Native Hawaiian organic farmer speaks to the gathering: “Today we cleanse the land so that tomorrow plants will grow, and it will be a new day – a new beginning. They’ve brought us into this corner to awaken us – for us to say ‘enough already.’ We have earned the right to go to battle; they will bring us all of these documents, they will throw money. It ain’t about money. It ain’t about greed. It is about doing what is right.”

The film provides an inspirational example of what people are capable of when they take action to do what is right. The song by the young man has lines which point to the importance of understanding the idea of societal movements advocating for the majority of people and not just the few. He doesn’t mention if he wrote the song, but whether he did or not, it is music that speaks in an anthem-like way to current social justice, economic fairness, and peace initiatives which are growing worldwide.

Congratulations to the people of Maui!

The doctor in this short film (The Petition Turn-in Ceremony – The Day Everything Changed On Maui) mentions that scientific GMO studies from around the world are being posted on the organization’s website.

The Uber-Cartel: True Or False?

“They say that knowledge is power. I used to think so, but I now know that they mean money.”

– Lord Byron (1788-1824)

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAYesterday we posted an interview of retired head of U.S. Army Strategic Intelligence, Major General Albert Stubblebine. In that interview Mr. Stubblebine, the highest ranking U.S. military person to publicly state that the official 9/11 Commission Report was false, shared his experience of having his entire world perception shaken to the core. With the ability he developed from 32 years in the U.S. military, with a particular emphasis on photographic analysis, his study of the damage done at the Pentagon on September 11, 2001 led him to believe that the official government story was wrong.

Now, for a man with Mr. Stubblebine’s military experience to publicly state that the government was in effect lying about the events of September 11, 2001 is at the very least disturbing. If any person reading this has researched Albert Stubblebine and can share your opinion here, please do so in the comments. I have only just discovered his interview and would greatly appreciate your honest opinions.

Since posting the 19-minute interview of Albert Stubblebine yesterday, I have found one other interview that was slightly over an hour. The comments after that interview were varied but perhaps 80-90% seemed to express the belief the Mr. Stubblebine is truthful, and that what he is saying about September 11, 2001 is what he believes is true. He is over 80 years old, an elder, that segment of the population many spiritual traditions hold in the highest respect because the elders have attained wisdom.

So, it is difficult to believe that a man over 80 years old and moving closer to the great transition commonly called death could falsely contradict the government and people that he spent decades serving. In the over hour-long interview he notes that he has decided to decline interviews with any person but person(s) that he trusts, because interviewers broke promises to let him watch interwiews before publication. He shares in that interview his experience of removing the “blinders” and “earmuffs” – after he retired from the military, he talks about “waking up”.

Alfred Stubblebine seems like an honest man who, because of his public statements contradicting the official story on September 11, has received blows to his reputation and honor. And would an octogenarian make a choice to intentionally lie and cause confusion? In other words, either Alfred Stubblebine is telling the full truth or he missed his calling as a dramatic actor. When one considers his age of over 80 years, his 32 years of military service, and the way he speaks in what seems like without pretense, it becomes hard to conclude but that he speaks truth. Once again, please either agree or disagree here, including details about why you agree or disagree, to provide clarification for myself and readers. Thank you.

Please share any opinion or knowledge you may have of Major General Albert Stubblebine’s wife, Dr. Rima Laibow, who in the following video gets interviewed by “We Are Change” and Luke Rudowski. Luke Rudowski is a fellow who I admire for his guts and courage in confronting the powerful. Dr. Rima is a woman I’ve listened to just today after looking for more interviews of her husband. Just the same as her husband, I listened to another over one hour-long interview of Rima Laibow and find her as intelligent and credible.

Having only just found this husband and wife and their astonishing messages in the last few days, without researching them, one finds it hard to remove the last feelings of doubt about the truthfulness of what they are sharing and asserting. With regard to Rima Laibow, there is a certain amount of agreement based simply on my reading of naturopathic books in the past.  So, I concur with her on the subjects of pharmaceuticals (she says she has never prescribed them to patients), vaccinations (not because of any scientific knowledge I have but I sense that they are not good), GMO because of my modest research, and geoengineering (although no governments have even admitted it is occurring, or why), with thousands of homemade videos of planes spraying extended contrails around the world for view on the internet.

Her connecting of pharmaceutical, agribusiness, medicine/health, and chemical companies through interlocking directorates, and her use of the term “Uber-Cartel” seems understandable from the standpoint of having read Ben Bagdikian’s book “The Media Monopoly”, where he explains the interlocking directorate scenario of media conglomerates.

The most difficult aspect of Rima Laibow’s assertions to deal with is her claims about eugenics or depopulation. Is it possible that those in the Uber-Cartel have plans to reduce the number of human beings by 90%? Frankly, it’s hard to even type the question, as it suggests a level of diabolical thinking that is in many ways – in all ways – unthinkable. Based on the sense of honesty in Albert Stubblebine’s voice, one would think that if he’s honest so is his wife.

So, with regard to Major General Albert Stubblebine and his wife Dr. Rima Laibow, there is no doubt that what they have and are saying is nothing but astonishing. Is it overwhelmingly false or, God forbid, overwhelmingly true? I sincerely ask for comments on these folks from you, because, if their information is false I have to take down their interviews – this blog is intent on posting only the truth. Either Mr. Stubblebine and Dr. Laibow have no problems with leading people on the wrong, dishonorable track of lies and disinformation or…

What comes after “or” is beyond humanity’s worst nightmare.
