How One Group Is Using A Sport To Bring Together Youth In Countries Divided By Conflict

Published

on

For many of us, myself included, the idea of regional conflict can seem fictional. However, in war-torn countries all across the world regional conflict is a serious reality that is disconnecting millions of people over disagreements that they have nothing to do with.

In an effort to combat this, three individuals Dr. David Barkan (California), Linda Sidorsky (Massachusetts) and Dori Yaniv (Israel) founded the initiative Ultimate Peace in the spring of 2008. The initiative uses the sport of Ultimate Frisbee to bring together youth from different parts of the world in a camp-like atmosphere to connect and build friendships with one another.

What sets these connections apart is that a lot of the friendships that are built are made between individuals who otherwise would have never been able to meet, due to regional conflict. These connections not only help to form wonderful bonds, but they also serve as a living example of how unnecessary regional conflict really is.

As the organization’s mission statement states:

Ultimate Peace builds bridges of friendship, trust, and leadership between youth who live in communities divided by conflict, using the values-based sport of Ultimate as its tool.

For those that aren’t familiar with the sport, Ultimate Frisbee is a wonderful sport that is both an incredible cardiovascular workout and is very cost-effective to play – all you need is a frisbee disc and some friends. What also sets Ultimate Frisbee apart from the majority of other sports is that at the recreational level it is almost always self-officiated, meaning that it encourages sportsmanship, fair play, and camaraderie while still being competitive.

Canada’s Premiers Sour On Carbon Tax: Positive Signs?

Published

on

(Note: the video embedded down below by Annie Leonard is a clear and simple explanation of the Carbon Tax / Cap and Trade system. It might be of benefit to view this video first if you are unclear about these concepts.)

For a while, it seemed like the powers that be had won another high-stakes battle, pushing their cap-and-trade scheme through Canada by way of Justin Trudeau’s federal government. It was only a year ago that nine of ten provinces had agreed to Trudeau’s plan to usurp provincial jurisdiction and mandate a national carbon tax.

Now Saskatchewan, the lone objector at that time, has filed a reference case to its provincial court of appeal, arguing that the matter falls under provincial jurisdiction. And they are no longer the lone voice of dissent.

Ontario Bails

The newly elected Ontario government announced recently it would end the province’s cap-and-trade program, fulfilling one of Premier Doug Ford’s election promises.

 “Cap-and-trade and carbon tax schemes are no more than government cash grabs that do nothing for the environment, while hitting people in the wallet in order to fund big government programs.”–Doug Ford

Citing the auditor general, the Ford government said the program could cost Ontario consumers and businesses C$8 billion, with a minimal impact on the province’s carbon emissions.

Other Provinces Join In

As this Financial Post article notes:

This week, going into the meeting of the premiers, the number of provinces supporting the Trudeau carbon tax looks like it’s down to five — or maybe even four. Soon it could be down to three.

Along with Saskatchewan and Doug Ford’s Ontario, Prince Edward Island has now said it will not accept Trudeau’s mandatory carbon tax. That’s right: a Liberal provincial government, under P.E.I. Premier Wade MacLauchlan, is now siding with conservative premiers in Ontario and Saskatchewan in fighting Trudeau’s federally imposed carbon tax. And in Newfoundland and Labrador another Liberal provincial government, led by Premier Dwight Ball, has yet to legislate a carbon tax. They wanted to wait, he said, to see what Ontario would do, first. They have their answer now.

There’s also Manitoba Premier Brian Pallister. You might remember he was in a rush to announce his own <less expensive> “made-in-Manitoba” carbon-tax plan a few months ago. More recently, Pallister’s government has said it is willing to take the Trudeau government to court so it can follow its made-in-Manitoba tax plan, not one made in Ottawa. Even New Brunswick’s Liberal Premier Brian Gallant, who is hosting the St. Andrews meeting this week, seems to be backpedaling on his support of a Trudeau carbon tax.

Power Shift

While most of the reasoning behind the political about-face of Canada’s Premiers is based on jurisdiction issues with the federal government, there may be more at play here. Behind the scenes, there may be a shift in power towards those who are not set to benefit from the cap-and-trade scheme. In the video below, Annie Leonard speaks about who is really promoting cap-and-trade and what kind of benefits they hope to get from it. She also indicates, as Doug Ford alluded to and Donald Trump has certainly said, the whole scheme does little to nothing for the environment or for humanity’s future.

I personally believe the whole CO2/Global Warming narrative to be a hoax. But that’s a story for another article. Even if the ‘science’ is true, Leonard makes it clear that with this cap-and-trade system, world leaders are merely promoting a complicated system designed to increases the wealth and control of the powers that be. Seeing a growing number of Premiers in Canada starting to line up against the cap-and-trade system is a sign to me that things may be going in a better direction.

Long Time NSA Intelligence Official Shares His Thoughts About Supposed “Russian Hacking”

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A longtime NSA official William Binney shares why the Russian hacking story is full of flaws and lies, and why the NSA is really 'spying' on people.

  • Reflect On:

    Why does the United States have a long history of blaming another country with completely false allegations? In this case, it's because the establishment really wanted Hillary Clinton to win so they could continue with their agenda.

Hearing about all of this Russian hacking, Trump, and politics, in general, these days seems to be like eating the same type of food every night, you literally get sick of it. This begs the question, should we even pay attention to it? Of course, we should, the political realm and the corporate stranglehold over it (and above that sit the financial elite) are taking advantage of us because WE are the ones that allow this entire charade to continue. It would be the same thing as not paying attention to the fact that pharmaceutical drugs are killing many people. There are many examples. To simply ignore it allows those ridden with the disease of power to keep taking advantage of us.  One thing is for sure, our so-called “leaders” don’t seem to care. Sure, they gather at summits every year to supposedly discuss solutions to the global problems, but solutions have been in existence for decades and nothing seems to happen. This alone should make every single person question what’s really going on behind the scenes because nothing seems to really make any sense at all.

It also forces one to come up and create solutions within their own life, and start creating change that way, by doing their best to be it.

This article sheds light on one common problem that’s existed for decades, and that’s the constant blaming of Russia, as well as other governments and global politicians for problems that don’t even exist. Perhaps the best example would be 9/11 and Iraq, or the recent supposed chemical gas attacks in Syria, and much more. Each is an example for humanity to wake up and see what’s really going on, because it keeps on happening over and over again, and to stop it, awareness is key, human consciousness is key…

It’s always critical to look at the information that’s not coming from mainstream media sources, and if you do, you will find multiple ex-intelligence agents and employees saying the exact opposite of what’s presented within the mainstream media. You can also find hard evidence to corroborate these statements, unlike the ones that come from mainstream media. These are brave people, who chose to share truth rather than sticking to their national security oaths, simply because “national security” has now become a term used to justify completely immoral action, like mass surveillance, for example.

JFK warned us about national security becoming a term that is used to keep everything a secret, hidden away from public knowledge.

One great example of one of these brave people would be would be William Binney, a high ranking NSA intelligence official who worked decades for the agency that blew the whistle on the NSA surveillance programs. He was the subject of an FBI investigations raid, which included a raid on his home in 2007. He was the one before Snowden and revealed that since 9/11 the agency has intercepted trillions of communications. He made headlines when he resigned in 2001 after 9/11, having worked more than thirty years for the agency. He was a leading code-breaker against the Soviet Union during the Cold War and was repelled by the United States’ massive surveillance programs.

He is still outspoken today, stating that the ultimate goal of the NSA is “total population control.” And again, it’s not just him, it’s many others. According to Binney, all of the allegations against Russia have been completely false.

This isn’t surprising, Hillary Clinton was supposed to win, her speeches were written by Goldman Sachs (Wikileaks), all she represented was a mouth-piece for the corporations, and the entire military-industrial complex, a mouthpiece for the terror war industry, and much much more. The level of corruption with Hillary and within the DNC was off the charts.

Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders were the only two who showed authenticity not connected to power, regardless of how that authenticity was perceived by others….

Binney recently did an interview with Dennis J. Bernstein, an American producer and co-host of the radio news program, Flashpoints Radio on Pacifica Radio, where he explains why Russian Hacking the election was impossible.

Bernstein: So if, in fact, the Russians were tapping into DNC headquarters, the NSA would absolutely know about it.

Binney: Yes, and they would also have trace routes on where they went specifically, in Russia or anywhere else.  If you remember, about three or four years ago, the Chinese hacked into somewhere in the United States and our government came out and confirmed that it was the Chinese who did it, and it came from a specific military facility in Shanghai.  The NSA had these trace route programs embedded by the hundreds across the US and all around the world.

The other data that came out from Guccifer 2.0, a download from the DNC, has been a charade.  It was a download and not a transfer across the Web.  The Web won’t manage such a high speed.  It could not have gotten across the Atlantic at that high speed.  You would have to have high capacity lines dedicated to that in order to do it. They have been playing games with us.  There is no factual evidence to back up any charge of hacking here.

You can read that entire interview here. you can watch another interview with him discussing the issue below.

In the interview, he goes on to state:

Bernstein:  It was initially put out that seventeen intelligence agencies found compelling evidence that the Russians hacked into our election.  You’re saying it was actually selected individuals from just three agencies.  Is there anything to the revelations that FBI agents talked about taking action to prevent Trump from becoming president?

Binney: It certainly does seem that it is leaning that way, that is was all a frame-up.  It is a sad time in our history, to see the government working against itself internally.

Bernstein:  I take it you are not a big supporter of Trump.

Binney:  Well, I voted for him.  I couldn’t vote for a warmonger like Clinton.  She wanted to see our planes shooting down Russian planes in Syria.  She advocated for destabilizing Libya, for getting rid of Assad in Syria, she was a strong backer of the war in Iraq.

Acknowledging that Russia had nothing to do with the election results goes to show the level of corruption within politics. It’s a game where allegations are thrown around within its own country, as well as globally. There are massive divides within the American government itself, a Deep State.

Here’s a little clip of him on RT at the end of last year. The interview above is more recent, and the feelings haven’t seemed to change.

William Binney is a hero. Just like Edward Snowden, Sibel Edmonds, and many many more.

The quote below is from Kevin Shipp, taken from the interview written about and soured in this article, another veteran of the CIA. It expresses why the Deep State wants Donald Trump out, because he’s not a puppet for them, like Hillary was, it explains why they instantly made up the Russia hacking allegations…

There is essentially a civil war involving parts of senior management and upper parts of our government that is occurring in the United States. It’s between the ‘Dark’ side and the ‘Constitutional’ side. There has never been anything like this in history. It is extremely serious, and this is an extremely serious hour for our government and especially for our constitutional freedoms. . . . This essentially is a global criminal cabal that has penetrated into our government and now has senior-level officials colluding and, I would argue, conspiring to unseat this president.

The Solution To Global Food Shortages, Contamination & Inflated Prices?

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Modern agriculture is not sustainable for our planet and is damaging our soil, depleting it of all its nutrients. We are needing more and more pesticides and chemical fertilizers to grow our crops. Aquponics is one much more sustainable option.

  • Reflect On:

    If we have the means to grow an abundance of food for everyone that wouldn't cause damage to the soil, or feed us unnecessary poisons, why wouldn't we?

There is no doubt about it, a growing problem today with food shortages and inflated food prices across the globe exists. For a long time, the answer to these issues has been the implementation of genetically engineered crops, according to many mainstream scientists at least. Unfortunately, this method of farming is contaminating our soil and depleting it of its nutrients, which are essential for growing vitamin-rich foods. The vast amount of chemical pesticides that are sprayed on genetically modified crops make it next to impossible to grow anything else and especially without the use of these pesticides. Considering there are much more natural, and efficient ways of growing ample amounts of the food we need to survive, one might wonder why we haven’t begun to implement these technologies on a mass scale.

Vortex Aquaponics

One of these solutions is a method of growing produce, known as aquaponics. One company, in particular, Vortex Aquaponics has made it their goal to grow an abundance of organic food and even produce clean fish, all without the use of pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Their objectives are:

  • Efficiently grow plants with a systematic process that is conducive to the local area
  • Produce non-contaminated mineral dense fruits, vegetables, and fish, with full lab tests
  • Create a streamlined process to sell and distribute small to large aquaponics systems
  • Offer complete aquaponics education programs to offer to the public and new customers

Is It Time For A Complete Overhaul On Our Current Food Production System?

Perhaps surprisingly a recent Consumer Reports survey showed that 84% of American consumers purchase organic food. This is great news, and it could signify the beginning of the end of genetically modified foods if organic food producers are able to keep up with the demand. Supply shortages are one of the greatest threats facing the industry today. Sales of organic food make up four percent of the total food sales while the amount of acreage devoted to organic agriculture is less than one percent of total U.S. land used for agriculture.

What Is Aquaponics?

According to Vortex Aquaponics,

“Aquaponics” the combination of Aquaculture (culture of fish) and Hydroponics (culture of plants without soil) integrated into a single agricultural system that works in many climates yielding an abundant amount of organic vegetation and edible fish.

Why choose Vortex Aquaponics?

  • Up to 10 times more production in the same amount of space horizontally without the plants being overcrowded.
  • Requires approximately 1/4 the labor of almost all other food production methods.
  • Virtual elimination of weeds, pests, diseases, viruses and pathogens for both aquatic and plant life alike
  • 100% free of chemical fertilizers, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides and other toxic chemicals
  • No watering plants! The aquaponics system uses 98% less water than normal.   Because the water is constantly re-circulating, and you do not lose any to soil absorption. The roots of your plants are constantly submerged in nutrient-rich water and you never have to worry about watering your plants again.
  • Multiple Sources of Income: Selling the plants, finished products, raising fish, selling seeds, etc..
  • Plants grow twice as fast.  The plants are getting nutrients 24/7 and don’t have the stress of traditional soil grown plants.
  • Uses up to 70% less Energy than traditional growing methods.
  • Many useful by-products are created that can be used to produce other crops, fruit trees, soils, biofuels and renewable energy

How Does This Actually Work?

All of the materials that are used by aquaponics systems align with their eco-friendly vision and include

1.  Vertical growing columns (Aquapot Vertical Towers): These are used for green leafy veggies and herbs
2.  Media Beds: For vines and larger crops such as tomatoes, cucumbers, fruiting plants, and root vegetables
3.  Fish Tanks: For raising the fish of your choice
4.  Solids Collector: For keeping the system clean
5.  De-Gasser: For putting oxygen back into the system
6.  Water Pump: For pumping the water up to the top of the column and recirculating the water
7.  Air Pump: Provides oxygen for the plants and the fish
8. Dome Greenhouse or hoop house

Vortex aquapnics also has an education system where they teach school children how the system works and why it is important for our future.

Is This Sounding Too Good To Be True?

These systems are already underway and being used to grow food. There are already 3 successful systems set up in Puerto Rico, China and Canada. The goal is to make these systems, widespread across the globe and supplement the demands for organic produce, while most likely over time wiping out other forms of agriculture that are not sustainable for our planet.

This goes that we do have the technology that is needed to ensure that no one goes hungry and we don’t have to be using the outdated and often destructive methods of industrial agriculture anymore. Times are changing and this system has the potential to transform the agricultural industry in a big way.

Much Love
