Trump Orders Continuation Of DAPL Pipeline, You Can Help Stop It By Not Supporting These Banks

Published

on

What’s going on in North Dakota at Standing Rock, the site of mass protests against the Dakota Access pipeline, is very important. People have joined Native’s in standing up for the protection of air and water quality, as well as the protection of sacred lands.

Trump recently signed the executive order for the Dakota Access pipeline to continue. A 3.7 billion dollar project that will transport crude oil from North Dakota through South Dakota and Iowa to a shipping point in Illinois. The terms will be subject to conditions to be negotiated by us parties involved -at least that is being considered.

So was all the protesting a waste of time? Heck no! Water protectors effectively raised a low of awareness about the issue and turned many into environment protectors which is something we need more of. It helped us to think about our impact on the environment and bring forth new technologies that can seriously make a difference without relying on inefficient technologies like wind and solar.

What Can You Do?

Now there is something more you can do to get involved and take action, we’ll get to this in a moment.

What’s going on at Standing Rock is very much a reflection of the angst the public is experiencing as they see how ruthless the actions of big corporations can be in taking non harmonious actions with our planet. What’s also frustrating is that these actions are for technologies we don’t even require any longer. See here.

Acting on it, we’re seeing a fantastic example of the power of unity and coming together on issues to make a stand in favor of the direction our world truly needs to go.

The Banks Funding The Pipeline

The Dakota Access pipeline is funded directly by 17 banks. Among them Citibank and Wells Fargo, two that you’ve surely heard of and maybe bank with currently.

It’s difficult for the public to get into the heads of the oil and gas companies and pressure them to act, but it’s a lot less difficult to get attention from banks that need consumers business. Bank loans, line’s of credit and our savings accounts are what fund projects like this through the bank. What would happen if those were gone?

Pressuring the banks directly involved with just a few actions can make a big difference, especially if enough people band together and do it.

The nonprofit Food & Water Watch’s research actually found that 38 banking institutions in total are involved in funding the proposed Bakken pipeline.  This stretch goes all the way from Canada to the Gulf of Mexico. A section of this project is the now famous Dakota Access pipeline.

So taking action on any one of these banks will help -all would be amazing.

Here’s What You Can Do

1. Contact the banks and let them know you don’t support your money being used in this project.

2. Stop doing business with these banks.

3. Spread the word to as many people as you can with this list, urging them to take action.

Here’s what you can say when you contact the banks:

According to Food & Water Watch researcher Hugh MacMillan: “Ask these banks to clarify whether funds they are providing are being used, in any amount, to pay for the heavily militarized response to the Standing Rock Sioux, including the attack dogs, sound-cannon trucks, heavily armed officers, and even a crop duster spraying undetermined chemicals over the camp.”

“People should also ask these institutions why they are sinking so much money into maximizing the amounts of oil and gas that can be brought to the surface and burned at a time when climate science is clear we have to maximize what we keep in the ground instead,”

You can also explain to them that as a customer of their financial institution, you do not support the idea that your money is helping to support the Dakota Access pipeline, due to the fact it’s a dangerous unjust oil pipeline and that it threatens air and water quality in many states. Explain you feel it violates sacred lands of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe. Finally let them know that if they don’t choose to back out of supporting this, you will take your business elsewhere.

Newly Discovered Crop Circle Has A Message For Humanity (July 2018)

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    A new crop circle was recently discovered in the UK on July 8th, 2018. It was the exact depiction of the chemical weapons warning symbol.

  • Reflect On:

    Does this serve as a message for us to put down the chemical and nuclear weapons for good? Do we need to be using these weapons? This may also cause us to consider the poisoning of our planet in other ways.

A new crop circle was recently discovered on July 8th in Coneybury Hill, Nr Stonehenge, Wiltshire. This circle is the exact same as the chemical weapons warning symbol.

Interestingly this crop circle was found shortly after the death of Dawn Sturgess who had come into contact with a deadly nerve agent.

While we can’t know for sure, this crop circle certainly appears to be a message to humanity about the dangers of chemical weapons and the catastrophic damage they can cause, regardless of who you believe made it. Perhaps this circle symbolizes the fact that these weapons have no place in our world, and it’s time we got rid of them, for good.

Check out some amazing drone footage of this newly discovered crop circle below.

ET Intervention?

It is not all that surprising to see this message show up in a crop circle, as in the past we have seen deliberate ET intervention when nuclear weapons would have otherwise been used. We have covered this topic before, and the following is an excerpt from an older article,

One of many previously classified reports -out of the thousands in existence -that is now available in the public domain is the intrusion at Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota, on August 24, 1966. Air Force personnel were concerned about a light in the sky. A team went to check it out and confirmed the object, then saw a second white object while doing so. The object was tracked on radar and moved vertical several times; each time it descended, an air force officer in charge of a missile crew found his radio transmission interrupted by static. The object eventually descended to ground level, and the Air Force sent a team to check it out. They saw the object either on the ground or hovering very low. According to the official report:

“When the team was about ten miles from the landing site, static disrupted radio contact with them. Five to eight minutes later, the glow diminished, and the UFO took off. Another UFO was visually sighted and confirmed by radar. The one that was first sighted passed beneath the second. Radar also confirmed this. The first made for altitude toward the north, and the second seemed to disappear with the glow of red.”

Here are a couple of more articles that go into greater detail regarding the connections between UFO’s and nuclear missiles:

“The United States Tried To Detonate A Nuclear Weapon On The Moon & Somebody Responded When We Did”

“Strong Evidence Shows Extraterrestrials Have Been Shutting Down Nuclear Missiles Worldwide For Decades, But Why”

Why Are They Stopping Nukes?

It seems that these extraterrestrials know just how damaging nuclear weapons can be to our planet, and possibly to our entire solar system. There is information that says that UFO’s have been deactivating nuclear weapons since we created them and started to show up a lot more often when we were testing the atomic bomb. Thankfully, someone or something has our back and is helping to stop us, humanity from making a huge mistake.

The Deep Truth Behind Why Trump Is President

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Since Trump's presidency, we have seen many of humanities shadows thrust into conversation. Not just shadows of Trump, but each and every one of us. The media has been aggressively opposing Trump almost all the way through.

  • Reflect On:

    What is Trump's presidency showing us about ourselves? Why are we seeing a full out media attack on Trump? Is the cabal losing power? Are we beginning to see the first stages of big shifts away from oppressive regimes?

A little backstory before we get into the video below. Back in 2016, following the election, we had stated that there seemed to be a pretty large shift in power given that Trump made his way into office. How did this happen? Here is a brief outline.

There is a divide taking place within the Cabal/Deep State. This divide is causing power struggles as some facets work to move away from the entirely destructive means of the previous many decades, and instead work towards a different path. Is this an entirely ‘good’ path? No, but we’re going to see this as a HUGE welcome improvement as we continue to shift our consciousness.

This divide works its way through intelligence agencies whereby ‘white hats,’ as you can call them, begin to bring forth leaks, information and dealings that help break apart the extremely oppressive end of the cabal. White hats are essentially everyday individuals, like Snowden was, who work inside intelligence agencies and who are also having a shift in consciousness within themselves. No longer do they wish to support the ways of the old, the ways it would have been if Hillary made it into office.

So we begin to see a power struggle, one that is obviously coming as a result of having an ‘outsider’ in office that is shaking things up QUICKLY.

How Did Trump Get In?

First off, what I mentioned above is a big part of it. On top of that, was the flip in electoral college manipulation that usually takes place when a president is chosen. Was Hillary Clinton furiously angry after the election because she didn’t get enough support from the general populace? No, she was furiously angry because her side of the Cabal/Deep State, who promised her a win and bought the entire media to help make it happen, flipped in part, causing enough of a change to have Trump get in.

Now typically people tend to think that when you talk about things in this manner it means you are in favor of Republicans and Trump. But this is primitive thinking in that it only looks at one tiny layer of what’s happening to apply an explanation we can then be comfortable with. When in reality, all that is happening here is we are looking at what is ACTUALLY happening, not what we are being told what is happening.

advertisement - learn more

You do not have to be pro Trump, pro Republican, or even in support of politics at all, for that matter, to see what’s truly taking place here.

Regardless, questions have been coming in for months and months to CE, asking what we think about Trump, whether we are in support of him and what all of this ‘chaos’ means. Of course, some, because we speak about things honestly and from a neutral perspective, tend to think we side with Trump because SOME of the actions of his administration and who’s behind him are actually in favor of humanity, and we report on them.

But regardless of the amount of explanation we have tried to bring to this somewhat complicated situation, I felt we needed something VERY clear. So I created a video expressing what Trump’s presidency truly means for our collective consciousness and 3 very big factors that are being brought forth through his time in office. This video will answer the topic this article is titled as.

Please take the time to watch and digest this, as it will answer so many questions regarding Trump and what is taking place.

Brazil’s Proactive Plan To Fight Poverty By Preventing It Through Neuroscience & Parents Love

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    The first 1000 days of a child's life are the most important for the proper development of their brain. Many parents lack this knowledge and understanding of what it truly takes to ensure their children are getting what they need.

  • Reflect On:

    The outcome of this massive experiment from Brazil may change the way parents are raising their kids worldwide. Children who come from loving, supportive, attentive families will have a better chance of creating a good life for themselves.

For nearly two decades Brazil has undergone the world’s biggest experiment to prove that by teaching poor parents how to love and nurture their infants it will dramatically influence what kind of people they become as adults. Through this guidance and support, Brazil is hoping to change its current trajectory of violence, inequality, and poverty through a method of prevention through love and care.

It is no secret that babies need to be loved and nurtured, but over the years there have been many other opinions and popular books about the Cry It Out method, or leaving babies to fend for themselves, placing them in their crib alone, out of the danger/fear of potentially smothering your baby in their sleep. Also, there is a general lack of knowledge and understanding about how crucial your time, care and attention is to a developing baby.

Because of this, many babies and children haven’t received an adequate amount of love and care as is needed for healthy brain development. In fact, babies can’t fend for themselves, and when they are left to cry they have drastically increased levels of cortisol, which can have a detrimental impact on their development, potentially altering who they could become later in life.

The leader of this project, Osmar Terra, became obsessed with the question of how humans develop about 30 years ago. He was a cardiologist in the 90’s and would often read research papers about the neuroscience of early childhood. After entering politics and becoming mayor of Santa Rosa in Rio Grande do Sul in ’92 he continued to ponder this question, leading him to a master’s degree in neuroscience. Terra wanted to find a way to tackle poverty head-on.

“In every single activity, I always ask myself, ‘What is the public policy that can be more transformative?’” he says. “How can we most dramatically improve the quality of life for our citizens, their health, their education?”

After much research, he came to realize that the answer to that question starts at the very beginning, during the pregnancy and the first few years of a child’s life.

There is a ton of groundbreaking research that shows how love and a sense of safety experienced by a baby will directly impact how the child brain will become wired. Adversity, especially that which is persistent and stress-triggering such as neglect and abuse will hinder development. This can result in poor mental, emotional and physical health, educational attainment and even early death. All of this important information and research is ultimately what led Terra to create Crianca Feliz, a highly ambitious parent coaching and guidance program that was launched in 2017. The goal is to try and reach four million pregnant woman and children by 2020.

Have A Look

“If a child feels emotionally safe and secure and attached they explore the world in a better way. The safer they feel, the safer their base, the faster they learn,” he says.

“I believe that this is the solution, not only for Brazil, but for any country in the world in terms of security, public security, education, and healthcare,” says José Medeiros, a senator from the state of Mato Grosso who heads the parliamentary committee on early childhood development. “It’s a cheap solution.”

Terra’s claims are more dramatic. “We will change the world, starting from the very beginning.”

The First 1,000 Days

Scientists have discovered that the first 1000 days of life are the most crucial for brain development.

According to Quartz.com

Many people, rich and poor alike, have no idea what infants are capable of. Psychologists and neuroscientists believe they are creative geniuses, able to process information in far more sophisticated ways than we ever knew. But for that genius to show itself, the baby needs to feel safe and loved and to have attention.

Medeiros explains how he viewed parenting before he went to the Harvard program.

”I raised my kids as if I were taking care of a plant,” he recalls. “You give them food, you take care of them.” He says he did the best he could, but “I did not have all this information. If I had encouraged them, stimulated them more, I would have been able to contribute much more to their development.”

He is hardly the exception. A 2012 nationally representative survey in Brazil asked mothers, 52% of whom were college educated, what things were most important for the development of their children up to three years of age. Only 19% mentioned playing and walking, 18% said receiving attention from adults, and 12% picked receiving affection. “So playing, talking to the child, attachment, it’s not important for more than 80% of the people who are interviewed,” says Harasawa, the director of Criança Feliz.

What Can We Take Away?

Could a lack of knowledge around what it really means to be a parent and raise a child be one of the biggest contributors to the crime, domestic violence, poverty and a wide array of other damaging behaviours that we are seeing globally? Could it really come down to parenting and the care that is given during the first 1000 days? It is very likely.

Unfortunately, many of the parents without the knowledge were likely raised by parents who didn’t have this knowledge either. Brazil’s ambitious plan will serve as a powerful experiment that the whole world can take note of. This truly has the power to give parents the tools they need to raise their kids in such a way that they have a better chance of reaching their highest potential. Let’s not forget that the children of today are the leaders of tomorrow. This is very important work, Bravo Brazil for leading the way for this powerful potential for real change!
