- The Facts:
Transcripts representing 370 pages worth of testimony from former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page's closed-door meeting with Congress in July 2018 were finally released to the public on Tuesday.
- Reflect On:
Are we seeing a pattern in the slow but orderly release of political information that is ultimately in service to our awakening?
Before you begin...
Those of us who are truth-seekers and investigators of information that is being hidden from us would probably like nothing better than to have all classified and secret information revealed at once. It is a source of anger and frustration that so much is hidden, and other people continue to hold power over when such information is disclosed. Even with the Assange Wikileaks dumps, the information is shared piecemeal, and certain subjects are still hidden from us.
But let’s think about it for a moment. If all the information were released all at once, how would we process it? For most of us, would it not simply become a stack of intimidating data that we wouldn’t have the time to get to and eventually ignore?

Instead of ruing this lack of control over the situation, we would do well to start noticing patterns in the way information is released to the public. It seems that when certain information is revealed is as important as what is revealed. This is not to say that these processes always have humanity’s best interests at heart, but the timing often seems to pertain to the public’s ability as a whole to take in new information and slowly shift their understanding and awareness of what is going on underneath the veneer of mainstream perception.
Lisa Page’s Testimony Revealed
Take the example of former FBI Lawyer Lisa Page’s closed-door testimony to Congress in July 2018, where she spoke of matters such as the FBI investigations into Hillary Clinton’s private server abuse. Transcripts representing 370 pages worth of testimony were finally released to the public on Tuesday by Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA). This means members of Congress have known about this information for 8 months already, and have decided that now the public can know about it as well.
The biggest revelation that seems to be afforded by this release of information is that Loretta Lynch and the Department of Justice actually ordered the FBI not to prosecute Hillary Clinton for storing classified information on an unsecured server. The conversation from the transcript between Page and Rep. John Ratcliffe (R-TX) is included in his tweet below:
Lisa Page confirmed to me under oath that the FBI was ordered by the Obama DOJ not to consider charging Hillary Clinton for gross negligence in the handling of classified information. pic.twitter.com/KPQKINBtrB
— John Ratcliffe (@RepRatcliffe) March 13, 2019
In the transcript, Ratcliffe’s full sentence, interrupted by Page’s answer, was “You’re not going to charge gross negligence because we’re the prosecutors and we’re telling you we’re not going to bring a case based on that.” All in all, this indicates that Loretta Lynch made the decision to tell the FBI not to bring an indictment against Hillary Clinton.
This Fox news article elaborates on the details of Loretta Lynch’s decision:
Page also testified that the DOJ and FBI had “multiple conversations … about charging gross negligence,” and the DOJ decided that the term was “constitutionally vague” and “had either never been done or had only been done once like 99 years ago,” and so “they did not feel they could sustain a charge.”
A major consequence of this, presumably, was FBI Director James Comey’s famous about-face on the matter:
Originally Comey accused the former secretary of state of being “grossly negligent” in handling classified information in a draft dated May 2, 2016, but that was modified to claim that Clinton had merely been “extremely careless” in a draft dated June 10, 2016.
Comey also said that “although there is evidence of potential violations of the statutes regarding the handling of classified information, our judgment is that no reasonable prosecutor would bring such a case.”
The Infamous Tarmac Meeting
In and of itself, this information might not have lead to anything more. However, when you compound it with the ‘infamous tarmac meeting’ in 2016 between Loretta Lynch and Bill Clinton, a disturbing narrative begins to take shape. They have both maintained the meeting was unplanned, their planes just happened to end up next to one another on the tarmac, and they engaged in a short conversation that was lighthearted and personal. According to this Blaze article,
Both Clinton and Lynch denied discussing nefarious subjects, such as the DOJ’s Clinton investigation, known as “Midyear,” or any other matters involving the Clintons’ public life.
However, that same article refutes these claims. It cites DOJ Inspector General Michael Horowitz’s report on the FBI’s Hillary Clinton email investigation to prove that the meeting was intended and planned:
The OPA Supervisor said that he later learned that former President Clinton’s Secret Service detail had contacted Lynch’s FBI security detail and let them know that the former President wanted to meet with Lynch. Although Lynch’s staff was supposed to receive notice of such requests, witnesses told us that they were not informed of the request from former President Clinton. (IG Report)
Additional information in the article also contradicts the notion that this meeting was not ‘lighthearted and personal’:
Finally, it was Lynch’s senior counselor who broke up the meeting when she realized it would become extremely problematic if the media learned Lynch had just met with the husband of a subject in a major investigation. The senior counselor said she could not recall what she heard when she entered the plane but said Lynch appeared “uncomfortable and wanted the meeting to be done.”
Q Weighs In
This Q Post (#2860) goes even further to suggest a commonly-held theory that Bill Clinton offered Loretta Lynch a seat on the Supreme Court if Lynch prevented an indictment against Hillary from happening, and notes how the investigation was dropped by James Comey soon after, all of which are also captured in the meme below.
[Tarmac] meeting not planned according to [LL] & [BC]?
Security reports indicate USSS (sec detail [BC] & FBI (sec detail [LL]) planned for meeting?
SC/[LL] deal presented by BC?
What actions did [JC] take days after?
Less than a week after the tarmac meeting, [JC] announced that the FBI would not recommend an indictment against [HRC]?
Returning to the news?
The timing of the release of the Lisa Page testimony really starts to help us put the puzzle pieces together in terms of understanding how and why Hillary Clinton has still not been indicted for serious, documented crimes. It will be interesting to see when the next piece of the puzzle gets dropped into place.
As truth-seekers in the Awakening Community, it is incumbent upon us not to be upset if we don’t think we are getting the truth quickly enough. Pinning our hopes for salvation too much on what is happening in the outside world can be as detrimental as not paying attention at all. When we do our inner work, we detach ourselves from the need to have things turn out a certain way, and it becomes easier to feel that the drama is unfolding perfectly, and the information is coming at us at a speed that is most beneficial to humanity as a whole and the process of our ‘Great Awakening.’
Global Food & Farming Issues: Dr. Vandana Shiva Slams Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg & Monsanto
- The Facts:
Physicist, environmental activist and renowned author Dr. Vandana Shiva explains modern day global food and farming issues. There are links within the article to her very informative work.
- Reflect On:
When organic agriculture has shown to be the best way to feed the world, why do giant corporations insist on taking over and doing things their way? Why do they have so much sway over government policy?
Before you begin...
Dr. Vandana Shiva is a renowned author, environmental activist, and physicist. Shiva founded Navdanya, an international movement started 30 years ago in India to defend seed and food sovereignty and small farmers around the world. Navdanya pioneered the movement of seed saving and seed freedom, which began in response to the crisis of erosion of agricultural biodiversity and introduction of GMOs and patents on seeds through intellectual property rights (IPRs) and so-called ‘free trade’ agreements. It has long fought against biopiracy, the patenting of indigenous knowledge by self-interested multinational corporations and won cases related to Neem, basmati rice and wheat in India. Navdanya promotes a new agricultural and economic paradigm, a culture of food for health, where ecological responsibility and economic justice replace the present greed, consumerism and competition which have become dominant in society. It aims at regaining the common good as a foundation for a renewed sense of community, solidarity and culture of peace.
In the last 30 years, Navdanya’s research on Biodiversity based Agro-ecological farming has shown how Agroecology can increase nutrition and health, as well as farmers incomes while rejuvenating soil, water and biodiversity and enhancing climate resilience. They have a membership of more than 650,000 farmer families in 22 states of India. According to Navdanya:
The COVID public health crisis and its resulting economic devastation have accelerated calls to respond through the ‘Great Reset’ of capitalism through embracing the fourth industrial revolution. For food systems, this would mean a ‘food systems transformation’ where all areas of the food supply chain are further centralized, digitized, and mined for data in the false names of ‘public health’ and ‘economic recovery’. This push is now being supported by international organizations and world leaders who stand hand-in-hand with big corporations’ desires for further agrifood system concentration. This translated to a more aggressive push toward false solutions of farms managed through artificial intelligence and predictive algorithms, precision farming, fake foods- such as lab-grown meat, synthetically produced oils, and breastmilk- robot pollinators, biofortification, gene drives for more advanced forms of GMOs, and digital sequencing genetic information (DSI) of agro-diversity.
They recently put out a very informative report titled “Gates to A Global Empire.” Be sure to check it out. I suggest you read a recent article written by Dr. Shiva (her twitter account) titled, “Indian farmers’ 30 year struggle against corporate globalisation and 40 year struggle against the green revolution.” Her books are also a great resource documenting the takeover of seed and the immoral and unethical actions of big corporations, like Monsanto, in India and all over the world.

‘Big Short’ Investor Michael Burry Warns Central Governments Could Squash Bitcoin
- The Facts:
Well known hedge fund Michael Burry feels that Bitcoin could be squashed by the "legally violent, heartless central governments" who won't allow Bitcoin to stay decentralized.
- Reflect On:
Our societal structures, like the economy, are certainly in question as many continue to lose faith in them. Is the path towards a better future through cryptocurrency? Could humanity dream up a world without money?
Before you begin...
You might remember the famed hedge fund manager Michael Burry from the film ‘Big Short,’ his character was played by Christian Bale. He is best known for forecasting the 2008 financial crisis, and he made billions from that bet. In a recent tweet, Burry has suggested that governments could “squash” Bitcoin (BTC) in a coming inflationary crisis due to further pandemic stimulus.
Burry also feels that further regulation of the decentralized currency could hamper BTC’s performance in the long term. With one of the main motivations behind cryptocurrency’s like BTC being that they are intended to operate outside of government control and regulation, you can bet that the millions who invest in crypto intend that it stays that way – out of the governments reach.
In a now deleted series of Tweets, Michael Burry stated some intriguing opinions about Bitcoin and potential government interventions:
I don’t hate BTC. However, in my view, the long term future is tenuous for decentralized crypto in a world of legally violent, heartless centralized governments with lifeblood interests in monopolies on currencies. In the short run anything is possible – why I am not short BTC.
Burry claiming he is not ‘short’ on BTC means he is not betting that its price will fall significantly anytime soon.
One of the major reasons Burry feels governments could squash BTC is due to coming inflation as a result of more pandemic stimulus. “In an inflationary crisis, governments will move to squash competitors in the currency arena. $BTC #gold,” he said. As you can sense by Burry’s words, he feels governments will do anything in their power to maintain control over their own currencies, and protect them at all costs, regardless whether it’s what benefits people most or not.
In his recent string of tweets he discussed Germany’s path to hyperinflation in the 1920s. He currently sees America’s economic trajectory to be similar to the post-World War I climate that eventually led to a 320% monthly inflation rate in the country.
If Burry is right about the upcoming inflation and the governments potential regulatory actions on BTC, this will be the 2nd time in recent years that he predicted a seismic shift in the US economy.
“People say I didn’t warn last time, I did, but no one listened. So I warn this time. And still, no one listens. But I will have proof I warned.” – Burry said in a tweet.
Modern Structures Are Failing
This inevitably brings up the discussion of our current way of life when thinking about our societal design. Does a capitalistic economy really create a world where people can thrive? Does it inspire big business and governments to think about people’s well being first? Or does it motivate them to think of profits first? Perhaps it’s our underlying worldview of competition and separation that causes us to create society in this manner? Either way, history over the last 30 years has shown us that financial crisis’ are happening at a faster rate, each time pushing more and more people into a lower socio-economic class while the few become richer. Aside from available spending money, think of how this affects people’s basic ability to survive and enjoy life.
COVID-19 served to make billionaires even bigger billionaires, while the average person struggles to get a job, feed their family and make basic payments. Is this a world we want to live in? Does this truly feel like what we’re capable of or are we being convinced to accept something because someone said so?
Are we really to support the idea that governments should regulate cryptocurrency, a means of exchange that is outside their control? What’s the motivation behind their regulation? As faith in our institutions crumbles year after year, is the culture within governance feeling their increasing loss of power over the people?
I don’t intend to write a lengthy piece deeply exploring the ins and outs of our economic model and why it’s not serving the people, I’ll save that for another time. I sense that the questions I’ve posed will already bring up thoughts and feelings within you that tend to ‘know’ our current ways aren’t working to help people thrive, perhaps that’s enough.
Where I’m curious to push the envelope a little further is in the question of why do we believe that we need currency and exchange to begin with? Why must our economies work the way we do? Have we really chosen to ask this question? Or have we accepted the limited and dishonest historical belief that “we tried everything else and this is best?”
A radical idea to consider I know, but one I invite you to imagine for just a moment. Given all the the incredible technology we have available to us today, can we really not imagine a society where money is not required? Given the emerging information in post material science that is telling us a different story about the nature of humans, can we honestly say we are simply competitive and warring animals still?
For just a moment, set aside the judgements someone might cast upon you for considering that we could live in a world without money, things like “that’s socialism!” or “That’s communism!” If you were tasked with the project of coming up with a way to live in our world without money, how might it look? How would we go about creating that type of community?
Aside from what we’re commonly told, human beings are incredible, with extraordinary abilities to connect, build community and solve problems. If we changed the conversation from “that’s never going to be possible” to “how might we actually go about doing this?” that innocent little shift allows us to be open, sense possibility and activate our creativity, even if it means we aren’t going to take action right away.
I’ve been doing this sort of work and asking these questions my whole life – professionally for 13 years – I don’t hold the naive position that all of this can just happen on its own or that we don’t require deep questioning of our current worldview, I recognize all of this is necessary. What I am saying though is, if we don’t begin to think and explore down this path, we can’t ever make things ‘better.’
So what are you choosing to do? Accept the world as it is today? Or are you open to imagining a world where people can truly thrive?
China To Expand Weather Modification Program & Make A Large Portion of Their Climate Artificial
- The Facts:
China has publicly revealed plans to drastically expand an experimental weather modification program to cover an area of over 5.5 million square kilometers (2.1 million square miles) -- more than 1.5 times the total size of India.
- Reflect On:
How long have weather modification programs been in operation? What are and have been the consequences of such activity?
Before you begin...
What Happened: China announced that it’s planning a rapid expansion to its weather modification program. Most people probably didn’t know that China even had a weather modification program. The changes include modifying the climate in an area that is more than one and a half times the size of India, covering an area of over 5.5 million square kilometers (2.1 million square miles). In fact, China has been modifying their weather for decades and they’ve used the technology at local levels as well. They were quite open about modifying the weather for clear skies ahead of and during the 2008 Olympics.
According to the Guardian,
The proposed enlargement is on a scale that could affect regional weather patterns. The cabinet said it wanted to extend the artificial rain and snow programme to cover at least 2.1m sq miles (5.5m sq km) of land by 2025. The long-term plan envisages that by 2035, the country’s weather modification capabilities would reach an “advanced” level and focus on revitalising rural regions, restoring ecosystems and minimising losses from natural disasters.”
It’s not just China that has engaged in such activity, it was used by the US during the vietnam war (Operation Popeye). General Electric started to conduct their first weather modification experiments in 1946. In 2012, Iran accused Israel and the United States of modifying their climate for warfare purposes, and did so again in 2018. According to then president of Venezuela Hugo Chavez prior to his death, “The US Navy launched a weapon capable of inducing a powerful earthquake on Haiti. This time it was only a drill, and the final part of it is destroying and taking over Iran.”
How long has this been going on for? A United States government document printed at the request of the United States Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation in November 1978 states,
Weather modification is generally considered to be the deliberate effort to improve atmospheric conditions for beneficial human purposes. Not all weather modification activities, however, have been designed to benefit everyone, and have been used for purposes of war….In addition to specific research programs sponsored by Federal agencies, there are other functions related to weather modification which are performed in several places in the executive branch. Various federal advisory panels and committees and their staffs -established to conduct in-depth studies and prepare reports, to provide advice or recommendations, or to coordinate weather modification programs – have been housed and supported within executive departments, agencies, or offices.
Dr. Michel Chossudovsky, a University of Ottawa Emeritus Professor of Economics writes in an article he wrote on his website:
The significant expansion in America’s weather warfare arsenal, which is a priority of the Department of Defense is not a matter for debate or discussion. While environmentalists blame the Bush administration for not having signed the Kyoto protocol, the issue of “weather warfare”, namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use, is never mentioned.
The US Air Force has the capability to manipulate climate either for testing purposes or for outright military-intelligence use. These capabilities extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts, and earthquakes. This comes directly from one (of many) of their documents.
Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather, … and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of technologies which can provide substantial increase in US, or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power. (Weather as a force multiplier: Owning the Weather In 2025)
The practice today is referred to as “geoengineering” and climate change/global warming seems to be the justification for it. But as with many other topics, with crises’ like COVID-19 and terrorism, for example, in my opinion they always seem to be used for purposes other than what the pubic receives as justification.
Below is a video of then CIA director John O. Brennan giving his support for weather modification programs.
Many universities around the globe are now working on large scale artificial intervention technologies to alter the Earth’s climate in response to climate change. Yale is one, for example, and Harvard is another. These programs involve a host of interventions, one popular one seems to be the idea of spraying particles into the atmosphere to reflect sunlight away from the planet, as explained by Nature in 2018 when Harvard researchers announced they were going to start conducting experiments. Typical particles used to spray into the atmosphere and reflect sunlight away from earth would be; Sulphate/Sulphuric Acid/Sulphur Dioxide, Titania, Silicon Carbide, Calcium Carbonate, Alumina, Silica, Zinc Oxide.
One of those researchers is David W. Keith. He’s a professor of Applied Physics for the Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) who seems to be in support of these interventions and working on them. A few years ago he stated that as a result of this type of wide-scale intervention “You may end up killing many tens of thousands of people a year as a direct result of that decision.” (source) We cannot forget about the environmental and ecological impacts as well. These could be catastrophic as so many other human interventions and developments have been.
According to a 2015 paper published in Current Science, by Dr. Marvin Herndon, PhD., a nuclear chemist and geochemist, we are already seeing the impacts.
“In response to an urgent call through an article in Current Science for assistance to understand the geological association of high aluminum mobility with human health in the Ganga Alluvial Plain, I describe evidence of clandestine geoengineering activity that has occurred for at least 15 years, and which has escalated sharply in the last two years. The geoengineering activity via tanker-jet aircraft emplaces a non-natural, toxic substance in the Earth’s atmosphere which with rainwater liberates highly mobile aluminum. Further, I present evidence that the toxic substance is coal combustion fly ash. Clandestine dispersal of coal fly ash and the resulting liberation of highly mobile aluminum, I posit, is an underlying cause of the widespread and pronounced increase in neurological diseases and as well as the currently widespread and increasing debilitation of Earth’s biota. Recommendations are made for verifying whether the evidence presented here is applicable to the Ganga Alluvial Plain.”
The idea that this type of activity has already been happening is not novel. “In recent years there has been a decline in the support for weather modification research, and a tendency to move directly into operational projects.” – World Meteorological Association (2007)
Final Thoughts: This article presents a tidbit on weather modification and doesn’t really address more than the tip of the iceberg. I do not think geoengineering is a necessary and healthy climate change intervention. In fact, I believe it’s completely unnecessary and we should really be looking at ways to change the way we generate energy and clean up our planet. I find it odd that so much political focus is put on CO2, yet hardly any on deforestation, for example. I also find it irritating that I’ve come across so many great solutions that can help our planet thrive yet they never see the light of day. Today, it seems the “solutions” chosen are the ones that really don’t do much but simply put more power, control and money into the hands of the “one percent.”
That being said, I believe the climate change crisis is like many others, it’s being used, abused, and in many cases “made up” and capitalized on for ulterior motives, however I’m not quite sure what those motives are. You can read more about my thoughts on “climate change” in articles I’ve published previously on the topic, here and here.
This type of activity (geoengineering) has serious consequences for both environment and health and it’s something that seems to be flying under the radar of many people. Furthermore, it’s always been categorized under the “chemtrail conspiracy” title which has detracted from a very real phenomenon.
I find it odd how a supposed solution to combat climate issues is to create more environmental and health issues, because it seems that’s exactly what this type of spraying will, can and does do. Our environment is already heavily saturated with heavy metals and pesticides, this should be our main focus along with cleaning up our water systems and restoring our ecosystems. Unfortunately focusing on these issues threatens big industry, and various corporations and political powerhouses can’t really benefit from it and would go out of business if actually necessary changes were implemented.
What can we do about it? I’m not quite sure what the answer is. Our world is filled with greed, ego, and the lust and desire for power and control. Many major ‘happenings’ are done so in a clandestine manner, there is so much going on in our world that the masses are completely unaware of. Our only source of information seems to be mainstream media networks, and they seem to be masters and controlling human perception. At the end of the day, it’s great that humanity is ‘waking up’, becoming more aware, voicing their concerns and asking more questions. Human consciousness is shifting to the point where, eventually, no human being will take part in these types of programs. This is why such measures, like geoengineering are always done under the guise of goodwill and presented as a necessary solution. It’s because human beings have good hearts, and many of us just wants what’s best for the whole. If we do not think we are doing something good and necessary, we’re probably not going to do it. This is where propaganda comes in
The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic society. Those who manipulate this unseen mechanism of society constitute an invisible government which is the true ruling power of our country. We are governed, our minds are molded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of. – Edward Bernays (Propaganda 1928)
Thankfully large portions of the human race are starting to “see.” This is a great sign and a necessary step we move along the journey towards a better human experience that ultimately will come from a shift in human consciousness. It’s happening now.
