Heed World’s Call For Peace.

“Conversation Peace” by Stevie Wonder (Released in 1995)

Staring right at 2000 A.D.
As if mankind’s atrocities to man has no history
But just a glance at life in 2000 B.C.
We find traces of man’s inhumanity to man
There’s no mystery

All for one… one for all
There’s no way we’ll reach our greatest heights, unless we heed the call
Me for you… you for me
There’s no chance of world salvation, unless the conversation’s peace

We can’t pause, watch and say “no this can’t be”
When there’s a plan by any means to have cleansing of one’s ethnicity
And we shouldn’t act as if we don’t hear nor see
Like in the holocaust of Jews, and a hundred and fifty million blacks during slavery

All for one… one for all
There’s no way we’ll reach our greatest heights, unless we heed the call
Me for you… you for me
There’s no chance of world salvation, unless the conversation’s peace

When publicly or privately convened
May love, positivity and life’s preservation be the basic theme
And should you put your trust in some prophet in life
Give him trust but your faith must stay with the one
Who gave the ultimate sacrifice

All for one… one for all
There’s no way we’ll reach our greatest heights
Unless we heed the call
Me for you… you for me
There’s no chance of world salvation
Unless the conversation’s peace

Fetzer On Fire…

by Jerry Alatalo

“But life is short and truth works far and lives long: let us speak the truth.”

– ARTHUR SCHOPENHAUER (1788-1860) German philosopher

earthblog2After publishing “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook”, editor of the book retired Professor Jim Fetzer and fellow contributing academics and researchers have carried out what could be described as a “big move”, to use a chess metaphor. While having spent only a moderate amount of time looking into Sandy Hook since 2012, there are a few observations which might help in resolving this issue once and for all.

First, this writer doesn’t have any sons or daughters, but if he did, and his son or daughter were one of those killed in the mass shooting, after hearing about this book titled “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook I would immediately seek an attorney and sue the editor and contributors. I would swiftly sue: a) because nobody will get away with smearing the memory of my child, and b) because nobody will get away with smearing the memory of all the children and teachers killed, smearing the reputations of my family and friends, along with those of every surviving family member or friend.

In essence, publication of “Nobody Died at Sandy Hook” could be described as a “showdown at the OK Corral” moment of truth about the controversy surrounding Sandy Hook. Whatever the consequences of publishing this book, in a certain sense it is a positive development for it forces exposure of what really happened, leading to either disrepute and shattered reputations of those who publicly state Sandy Hook was a “false flag” or confirmation of a government manipulation of public perceptions. If those who proclaim “false flag” and “nobody died” are wrong and the reports from government and the mainstream media are correct, then one would logically predict an upcoming tsunami of lawsuits from the families of those who lost loved ones, directed at the book’s editor Jim Fetzer and his fellow contributors.

On this controversial issue, what seems most worthy of tracking in the days ahead is whether such lawsuits become initiated or not. If many survivors’ families, either alone or in a joint legal action, move ahead against the people responsible for publication of the book, then one can logically conclude Sandy Hook was a real mass-shooting where children and teachers perished. If no lawsuits against the book’s creators become initiated in the days ahead, then, well, “Houston, we have a problem.”

Second, one might consider the negative consequences of failing to get to the absolute truth on the controversial issue of Sandy Hook. Whether one holds the view that Sandy Hook was a real mass shooting or was a “false flag”, the number of American men and women in either “camp” is not insignificant. Irresolution of the issue – failure to reach to the point of total and irrefutable acknowledgment by all people what actually happened that day – leaves many with corrosive and divisive, separation-generating perceptions among the citizens of the United States.

Using one’s imagination, one asks “how much cumulative damage across the United States to family relations, personal reputations and friendships has occurred since 2012 due to continuing talk or debate between people holding views ranging across the entire spectrum from completely misinformed to highly informed about Sandy Hook?” This writer asserts that the damage done since 2012 in all the various manifestations associated with differences among people about what really happened is greatly under-appreciated and under-estimated, and points to the obvious need for addressing the matter and settling it once and for all.

The same view applies regarding the enormously consequential events of September 11, 2001 and other major issues, as 9/11 remains literally the elephant in the room crying out for a new investigation. It’s important to once and for all discover and expose the truth, and thus correct widely held, continuing, false and divisive perceptions – irrespective of which “side” one comes down on. Fundamentally and importantly, such matters call for much more powerful leadership efforts to reveal the truth, including a greater appreciation and/or focus on bringing an end to large numbers of citizens’ hanging on to false views.

Without his regular partner on “False Flag Weekly News” Kevin Barrett, Mr. Fetzer presents a number of reports during the 50-minute broadcast. As a long-time researcher on major and often controversial world events, and after publication recently of the book about Sandy Hook, one senses that he has become somewhat re-energized or rejuvenated,  perhaps due to his belief the book has created major shock waves and gone a long way toward forcing the truth out in the open.

Seeing it’s World Series of baseball time, it’s fair to compare Mr. Fetzer’s revived enthusiasm to those players who’ve “saved their best” for the maximum competition and greatest prize in the world of professional baseball. One envisages him stepping into the batter’s box for the “truth team”, facing down the opposing team’s pitchers throwing 100 mile per hour false information, and promptly smashing home run after home run over the fence.

The great thing about athletic contests is that everyone in the stands has their eyes on the game like witnesses then able to testify to the truth about what actually happened on the field. Whether its 50,000 fans in the ballpark or millions watching the game on television, everyone knows exactly what happened on the field.

Some can recall the 1992 movie “A League of Their Own” about a women’s professional baseball league starring Tom Hanks, Madonna, Rosie O’Donnell and Gina Davis, and the scene where one of the girl players starts weeping over something which occurred in the game.

In a line which has remained in the memories of all who saw thew film, Tom Hanks as manager of the team scolds her and exclaims, “there’s no crying in baseball!” Perhaps an updated version of that famous movie line fits into this post on getting to the truth about major world events and issues… There’s no lying in baseball.

From back in the days of participating in baseball, when a hitter went on a streak where it seemed opposition pitchers couldn’t get him out everyone would acknowledge the hitter was “on a tear”. In this edition of “False Flag Weekly News” one senses Jim Fetzer has surpassed that baseball hitter’s metaphor “on a tear”. With respect to reporting and analyzing the truth on world events, viewers see Mr. Fetzer “on fire”.

So it goes. And how was your week?…

Iceland’s Hordur Torfason.

Hordur Torfason of Iceland is the man credited with creating that country’s “peaceful revolution“, which led to major changes, including a new “crowd-sourced” constitution. This interview was conducted by an organization whose website is articlev.org. I have not visited this site and have only become aware of it when searching for the latest interview of Mr. Torfason. All I can say about the organization is that their efforts involve amending the U.S. Constitution, and that they are interviewing Mr. Torfason to learn about what occurred in Iceland.

I have no thoughts one way or the other about the activities of those who run articlev.org. This video was simply the newest one I could find where Mr. Torfason of Iceland is interviewed.

With that said, Hordur Torfason was the man who, with the help of many men and women in his country, put in the time and effort which resulted in what some call, “the Iceland miracle”.

Although I have yet to hear Mr. Torfason mention in the couple of interviews I have listened to the name Mahatma Gandhi, it would not surprise me if Gandhi’s principles of non-violent resistance were studied by him. Neither would it surprise me to learn he had studied Martin Luther King’s writings on non-violence, influenced by Gandhi’s writings as well.

When he describes the agreements made by Icelanders who participated in the actions which led to the historic changes in the government, he mentions those who wore orange at gatherings stopping any outbreaks of violence through shielding law enforcement personnel, checking packages for any type of weapons etc. This shows that the people’s movement in Iceland adhered to very strict rules of maintaining peace and that maintenance of peace was a top priority every man and woman was fully aware of.

What is interesting about the descriptions of what motivated the movement in Iceland is that he states what many millions of people around the world are feeling, but have yet to fully articulate and act upon. He says that what motivated the people of Iceland was the honest and simple wish for their elected officials to represent them, and not private corporations.

The lesson which seems to come from the astonishing democratic changes in Iceland, thanks to the efforts of Hordur Torfason and many men and women in his country, is one that is fairly simple, yet takes an effort to bring into reality. The Icelandic people answered the all-important question: “will our people create a system of government which looks out for the best interests of all the people, or continue to accept a system which runs on political bribery, corruption, cronyism-love of money-which benefits only a few?”

The people of Iceland proved to the rest of humanity that creating a system of government which looks out for the health and welfare of all of its citizens is possible.

Iceland Provides Model For The World.

The President of Iceland, Dr. Olafur Grimsson, is interviewed in this video by Ms. Oksana Boyko on RT’s “Worlds Apart”. Dr. Grimsson does not come across like the average politician. Instead he is a statesman.

This is an excellent interview which describes the events which the country of Iceland and President Grimsson faced, as well as all countries which have privately owned central banking systems, in the year 2008 when the worldwide financial crisis negatively affected the national economies of the Earth.

President Grimsson describes an “almost revolutionary situation” in his country, which threatened the 1,000 year-old democracy of Iceland. He says that “banks and markets have an enormous democratic responsibility in every country”, and that if the citizens of Iceland had accepted austerity-if they had decided to pay for the failures of private banks-the citizens of Iceland would have had to pay for that decision for decades.

He describes how his decision to hold a referendum, to allow the average citizens of Iceland to decide their future, was the most difficult decision he had ever made. He asked himself who was more important-banks or people-and decided to trust the people, who gave their trust to him. All the while he faced down the negative views and judgments of the status-quo telling him, and the people of Iceland, that their country would become a “pariah state” and suffer extreme isolation.

The issues discussed in this interview go to the heart of problems faced by the people of Greece, Italy, Spain, Portugal, the United States (not austerity-but the kinder, gentler “sequestration”) and other nations.

The people of Iceland, led by President Olafur Grimsson, have provided the ideal model for every other country now suffering under the same harsh austerity measures that Iceland, with 98% of the people in agreement, voted down.

The people of Iceland, by an overwhelming majority, chose democracy and human rights over banks.
