Global cooling: Snow settles on the mountains of southern Norway just 2 days before midsummer



The mountains of Southern Norway are supposed to be welcoming summer tourists, hikers and cyclists at this time of year, but folks in Sognefjellet, Valdresflyet and Hardangervidda woke up Tuesday to find wet snow that had dusted the landscape. With more snow expected this week, highway officials are urging caution when driving on mountain roads.

All mountain passes remained open but the asphalt can be slick. State broadcaster NRK reported that highway officials at Statens vegvesen aren’t demanding a shift to winter tires, but warn that relatively cold temperatures are forecast for the rest of the week. “Drive in accordance with weather conditions,” was their standard advice

The snow that fell just two days before midsummer and this weekend’s summer holiday kickoff known as Sankthans in Norway is not entirely unknown but marks a big change from the heat wave that settled over Southern Norway in May and early June.

“We can have variation in temperatures in the summer, and this (snow in June) happens now and then,” Roger Nedberge Hille of Statens vegvesen told NRK. More snow was predicted at elevations from 1,400 meters and higher.

Chilling “Before And After” Photos Of Libya Go Viral

  • The Facts:

    Historic meetings between Trump & Kim Jong Un move towards peace talks between the two nations. What’s really going on here is about disrupting the old elite regime.

  • Reflect On:

    Who really holds the power in our world? Are we getting a true picture of what is going on with events like this from the mainstream media? Is the hate for Trump a result of his level of disruption of elite plans?

The first thing we should all consider, and something that should be downright obvious by now, is the fact that our perceptions of events and people are purely programmed into us by the machine that is mainstream media.

When it comes to Donald Trump, historian Richard Dolan put it quite well, saying that: “It is important to understand why Trump was demonized. Sure, his character can make it easy. There is no shortage of narcissistic, sexist, or otherwise intense statements in his repertoire. But I have never, and will never believe, this is why he was demonized. Ultimately, Trump is a disruptor, and his disruption falls squarely against the two key pillars of the American ruling elite’s ideology: neoliberalism and neoconservatism.”

I often wondered how it was possible for so many people to support Obama & Hillary when the same geopolitical agenda continues unchanged for decades, I compare it to a global holocaust, in the Middle East and within many other parts of the world. A powerful group of people, using politics as their tools & politicians as their puppets, is and has been imposing their will on other countries by creating events and then proposing a solution, all to justify back home reasons for “infiltration.” Patriotism is heavily used, especially to hold up the perspective that our militaries are actually used to defend a country and bring democracy to other nations. In some cases yes, in most cases, no, unfortunately, they’ve been used by old men for unthinkable purposes.

There are so many examples to choose, from 9/11 to the recent supposed chemical gas attacks in Syria by Assad.

The conscious and intelligent manipulation of the organized habits and opinions of the masses is an important element in democratic societyThose 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 moulded, our tastes formed, our ideas suggested, largely by men we have never heard of.” – Edward Bernays (“the father of public relations”), Propaganda, 1928 (note that Bernays’ book, Propaganda, begins with the above quote).

Yes, when another politician speaks upon these facts, like Vladimir Putin outlining the ‘magical and mythical’ threats the global elite use to impose their will on other countries, it’s labelled as propaganda by mainstream media.

So, it makes absolutely no sense to really think anything of Trump, except as an outsider, one who was not “controlled” by the corporations, and the big banks like the Clinton’s, and Obama’s, and many presidents before them. Trump represents a difference in that sense, a change, but also has numerous suspicious ties and associations that are similar to the likes of Deep State puppets as well.

Again, genocides have occurred under presidents past, yet they are viewed as heroes and celebrities…News reports of Hillary Clinton covering up a massive pedophile ring in the state departments, and strange WikiLeaks documents, have also simply been brushed off as ‘propaganda.’

Things are certainly strange within the realm of politics, to say the least.

For a deeper look into our perspective on Trump, you can refer to this article: You Asked For Our Stane On Trump, So Here It Is

Trump is a great example, and one of many who has said and acted different in their campaign, but then all of a sudden change when their presidency takes place. It seems they become aware of things they were not once aware of, and greater powers begin to influence their decisions. Perhaps they are ‘checkmated’ by the national security community?

The Real ‘Powers’

The bottom line is, when it comes to politics, there are powers greater than the presidency calling the shots, and we can never really know what’s going on. All we get are the puppets, some of which may attempt in some ways, to oppose various groups within the Deep State or those who rank among the worlds ‘elite.’ They are simply used for us to point our fingers at, or idolize and worship as Gods while people behind the curtain pull the strings.

This is why the whole idea of voting is completely useless, it simply continues a cycle and system that clearly doesn’t work.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete. – Buckminister Fuller

Another thing to really consider is the fact that, as retired Professor (Emeritus) of Sociology at Binghamton University and adjunct professor at Saint Mary’s University, Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, James Petras recently wrote,

The world is riven with class conflicts in Latin America, political conflicts between the Anglo-Americans and Russians, and economic conflicts between Washington against Europe and Asia. The conflicts have called into question the capacity of ruling elites to promote growth, to secure international stability and to foster global as co-operation.

All this comes, simply because of the fact that there is a secret government in control of politics, and what we are presented with, we never really know the details and what is really going on. Presidents throughout history have called awareness to this entity, and there are several great examples where they’ve voiced their concern of, in some cases, what they had become apart of.

Behind the ostensible government sits enthroned an invisible government owing no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people. To destroy this invisible government, to befoul the unholy alliance between corrupt business and corrupt politics is the first task of the statesmanship of today. – Roosevelt

North Korea & Nuclear Weapons

Another important fact to consider is that the entire world is making nuclear weapons. Just look at the nuclear deals happening between Israel and Saudi Arabia, how come nobody is talking about that? What about America and their inventory of nuclear weapons? The fact that nuclear weapons even exist is troublesome, and what’s even worse are findings like the one Dr. Helen Caldecott, a researcher and anti-nuclear advocate describes:

In 2015, ninety-two American missile officers were suspended because they had been cheating, taking drugs, or sleeping in the missile silos. These men are employed to guard and to operate 150 nuclear missiles at F.E. Warren Air Force Base in Wyoming which constitutes one-third of the 400 Minuteman 3 missiles that stand “on hair trigger alert” 24 hours a day in silos which are scattered across the northern Great Plains…

During the investigation, fourteen airmen had allegedly been using cocaine. Other drugs involved were ecstasy, cocaine, LSD and  marijuana.  All in all roughly one hundred officers were involved in the cheating scandal in 2015 and 2016.

After that, she goes on to describe more shocking “episodes of gross malfeasance,” stating that it’s amazing to her that  “we are still here having not been incinerated in a global nuclear holocaust. Suffice it to say, we are in the hands of fallible men armed to the teeth with missiles and hydrogen bombs.”

This is why I don’t even want to get into North Korea & Trump because our geopolitical world is completely out of control. I don’t know what’s going on, but I do know that the powers that be and the countries that they control have been imposing their will on the world for a very, very long time, and have used us, the human race, and our own consciousness, our own perceptions, to justify this behaviour.

The statesmen will invent cheap lies, putting the blame upon the nation that is attacked, and every man will be glad of those conscience-soothing falsities, and will diligently study them, and refuse to examine any refutations of them; and thus he will by and by convince himself the war is just, and will thank God for the better sleep he enjoys after this process of grotesque self-deception –  Mark Twain (source)

There is always some sort of problem in another country, and North Korea is a great example, that gives the Deep State an upper hand with regards to intervening, but thankfully the world is beginning to see through this. Even US Generals, like Ex-Supreme Allied Commander General Wesley Cark, have outlined the fact that this plan, to basically take over the world, has been in the works for years.

Again, let’s use Syria as an example.

The CIA began its active meddling in Syria in 1949—barely a year after the agency’s creation. Syrian patriots had declared war on the Nazis, expelled their Vichy French colonial rulers and crafted a fragile secularist democracy based on the American model. But in March of 1949, Syria’s democratically elected president, Shukri-al-Kuwaiti, hesitated to approve the Trans Arabian Pipeline, an American project intended to connect the oil fields of Saudi Arabia to the ports of Lebanon via Syria. In his book, Legacy of Ashes, CIA historian Tim Weiner recounts that in retaliation, the CIA engineered a coup, replacing al-Kuwaiti with the CIA’s handpicked dictator, a convicted swindler named Husni al-Za’im. Al-Za’im barely had time to dissolve parliament and approve the American pipeline before his countrymen deposed him, 14 weeks into his regime. – Robert F. Kennedy

One thing that is encouraging, however, is the denuclearization of any region by any country. The fact remains, the US has always wanted to emphasize the nuclear programs other other countries who do not currently have a central bank, and countries whose resources that the US and their allies could use. Is this agreement between Trump and the North Korean president something that only a president who opposes the Deep State could do? Because it’s hard to imagine any other president doing so.

This is the first time a president has been able to sit down with the leader of North Korea, and have come to some sort of peaceful resolution. That being said, most of these things are done with political, greedy and elitist goals in mind. Not peace…

The North Korean president referred to the meeting as a “historic turning point.”

In western mainstream media, Trump is praised by some outlets, like fox news, and others, like CNN, you will get a completely different perspective. It’s best to just not really through any negativity, fear, and judgment into what you are watching, and understand that you don’t really have any piece of the story unless you turn off your T.V. and spend a considerable time doing some independent research.

Trump Is Challenging Us To Reflect & See

If you haven’t read our stance on Trump, check it out. The amount of anger, emotions, and frustration we collectively have had about Trump being president is incredible. While I believe this shows how much we collectively need to shift our perspectives on things in general, I also believe that in many ways our emotional outcries are where things start. We have to observe our emotions and what they telling us about our beliefs and perspectives in order to see how we can move beyond them. We are massively limiting our world and reality by holding on so rigidly to what we believe. To be clear, we cannot change things from a state of anger or aggression, we must first move past this. This is a lesson humanity is learning big time right now.

“The real menace of our Republic is the invisible government, which like a giant octopus sprawls its slimy legs over our cities, states and nation . . . The little coterie of powerful international bankers virtually run the United States government for their own selfish purposes. They practically control both parties . . . [and] control the majority of the newspapers and magazines in this country.”   John F. Hylan was Mayor of New York City from 1918-1925 (source)(source)

Before His Death, Anthony Bourdain Once Admitted to Taking Drug Linked to Hundreds of Suicides


Celebrity Chef and TV Personality Anthony Bourdain took his own life on Friday, and as his friends, family and the public are left with endless questions, evidence has surfaced showing that Bourdain was using the drug Chantix, which has been linked to hundreds of suicides.

Bourdain was vocal about his attempt to quit smoking by using the popular anti-smoking drug Chantix. In February 2012, Chef Michael Symon shared on Twitter that he “had a little smoking hiccup the other day… moment of weakness… but unlike other attempts to quit, got right back on track,” and Bourdain replied, “tried Chantix? It makes some people stabby but worked for me.”

The claim that Chantix “makes some people stabby” is an understatement, considering the fact that the drug comes with a long list of side effects, including hallucination, mood changes, aggressive behavior, thoughts of hurting or killing others, and suicidal thoughts or actions.

While Chantix may help some people stop smoking, the negative impact it can have on every other aspect of a person’s life raises questions about whether it is worth it. When Bourdain was asked in April 2012 if he really did quit smoking, he replied, I really did quit smoking and it has in no way improved my life—or my palate, unfortunately.”

However, Bourdain was still taking the drug in November 2012, and he found that the side effects became even worse when mixed with the anti-malaria drug, Malarone. He wrote on Twitter, “Chantix and Malarone do not mix well.”

While it is unclear how long Bourdain continued to take Chantix, the fact is that he introduced a powerful drug into his system that has been shown to have an overwhelming number of dangerous side effects. In fact, as Medical Daily reported, Institute for Safe Medical Practice senior researcher Thomas J. Moore concluded that Chantix was “associated with more adverse effects than any other medication on the market” in 2008.

After approving the drug in 2006, the Food and Drug Administration was forced to place a “black box warning” on Chantix in 2009, because of the overwhelming number of reports linking it to suicidal thoughts, hostility, and agitation.

Between 2008 and 2013, at least 544 suicides and 1,869 attempted suicides in the United States were connected to Chantix, according to documents obtained through the Freedom of Information Act and reported by Al-Jazeera.

In a 2010 study on the cases in which users reported increased violence or aggression after taking Chantix, Moore told Al-Jazeera that he found many of the examples started with acts of violence and then progressed to suicide attempts and that there were usually three common factors.

“First, the violence was absolutely unpredictable and senseless,” Moore said. “Second, the victim was anybody who happened to be nearby. It could have been a fiancé. It could have been a mother. It could have been a police officer. And third, these people had no history of violence and were unlikely prospects for a violent act.”

While it is not clear whether Bourdain showed signs of violence or aggression, his suicide appears to have been sudden and has shocked many. It is not known whether Bourdain was taking any pharmaceutical prescriptions at the time of his death, but actress Rose McGowen responded by speaking out about his battle with depression and his relationship with her close friend, Asia Argento, in a letter:

“When Anthony met Asia, it was instant chemistry. They laughed, they loved and he was her rock during the hardships of this last year. Anthony was open with his demons, he even wrote a book about them. In the beginning of their relationship, Anthony told a mutual friend, “He’s never met anyone who wanted to die more than him.” And through a lot of this last year, Asia did want the pain to stop. But here’s the thing, over their time together, thankfully, she did the work to get help, so she could stay alive and live another day for her and her children. Anthony’s depression didn’t let him, he put down his armor, and that was very much his choice. His decision, not hers. His depression won. Anthony and Asia had a free relationship, they loved without borders of traditional relationships, and they established the parameters of their relationship early on. Asia is a free bird, and so was Anthony. Was. Such a terrible word to write.”

Anthony Bourdain will be remembered as both a chef and a humanitarian who used his award-winning series, “Parts Unknown,” to break the barriers between cultures in the countries he visited.

From accusing the world of robbing the Palestinian people of “their basic humanity” after a trip to Gaza, to admitting that he was “really knocked sideways by how well we were treated” during a trip to Iran, to remarking that a trip to Cambodia would make anyone want “to beat Henry Kissinger to death with your bare hands,” Bourdain worked to humanize parts of the world that are typically demonized by the United States.

DASH cryptocurrency and The Free Thought Project have formed a partnership that will continue to spread the ideas of peace and freedom while simultaneously teaching people how to operate outside of the establishment systems of control like using cryptocurrency instead of dollars. Winning this battle is as simple as choosing to abstain from the violent corrupt old system and participating in the new and peaceful system that hands the power back to the people. DASH is this system.

DASH digital cash takes the control the banking elite has over money and gives it back to the people. It is the ultimate weapon in the battle against the money changers and information controllers.

If you’d like to start your own DASH wallet and be a part of this change and battle for peace and freedom, you can start right here. DASH is already accepted by vendors all across the world so you can begin using it immediately.

Trump finds time to tweet before meeting with Kim Jong Un

Just hours before Donald Trump was scheduled to meet with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in Singapore, the president was drawn back to Twitter where he took aim (albeit with poor spelling) at domestic critics.


With much of the world focused on the historic summit between the two leaders, Trump also made sure to press his case that his administration had been good for the U.S. economy.


Of course, the stakes for Trump’s gamble to meet with Kim remain incredibly high, and the administration spent much of the day downplaying the chances for a lasting breakthrough. Early meetings between North Korean diplomats and U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have reportedly yielded new security concessions from the American side while human rights concerns remain sidelined.

“We’re prepared to take actions that will provide them sufficient certainty that they can be comfortable that denuclearization isn’t something that ends badly for them — indeed, just the opposite, that it leads to a better, brighter future for the North Korean people,” Pompeo told reporters Monday.

The air of uncertainty was confirmed by Trump himself.

For Trump, Singapore represents a golden opportunity to overshadow the negative headlines he generated from a contentious G-7 summit. One gets the sense, however, that whatever transpires across the negotiating table, it won’t take long for the president to tweet about it.

Even after he entered his motorcade and began heading to the momentous meeting with Jong Un, Trump couldn’t help but fire off one more message to his followers.

Only ‘A Matter of Time’ Before Commercial Flights Begin Getting Hacked – DHS

Motherboard obtained documents from DHS through a Freedom of Information Act request that give some insights to the DHS operation. The documents detail DHS’ efforts since 2016 to try to solve the problem of the cybersecurity vulnerabilities on airplanes and the work of the multi-agency team established to find and eliminate weaknesses.

Slide from Department of Homeland Security documents on aviation cyber security says it's only a matter of time before a commercial airliner gets hacked.

It’s a pressing issue, as there are about 23,911 commercial flights transporting some 2.3 million passengers each day in the United States. Beyond the obvious national security threat, there’s an economic one: civil aviation accounts for 5.1 percent of the United States’ gross domestic product.

According to DHS, mitigating a hacking attack against an object that moves can be a lot more challenging than thwarting one against computers that remain stationary.

Slide from Department of Homeland Security documents on aviation cyber security givens an overview of ways that commercial airliners could be hacked.

But it can be done.

After DHS created the unit in 2016, its team of government, aviation industry and academic researchers demonstrated that commercial aircraft can be hacked remotely. Many of the details of the 2016 hack are classified, but it is known that the hacked plane’s software was penetrated through radio frequencies and a piece of hardware that can get by the watchful eyes of airport security, Robert Hickey, aviation program manager at DHS’ Science & Technology Directorate told Motherboard. The team was able to hack the plane two days after getting access to it.

Slide from Department of Homeland Security documents on aviation cyber security provides the rules researchers have to follow while testing hacks against commercial airliners.

Hickey announced the successful hack of a Boeing 757 parked at an airport on November 8 at the 2017 CyberSat Summit.

DHS didn’t stop there, though. One slide among the documents obtained by Motherboard indicates that DHS was able to “establish actionable and unauthorized presence on one or more onboard systems,” but also that it was “unable to penetrate via selected access vector.” It is uncertain what that could mean, but it may be that the hack worked even if it didn’t go exactly as planned.

It’s unknown how many planes DHS has been able to hack, but according to the documents they’re planning to stop trying to penetrate airliners at some point and start developing ways to stymie others from doing so.

Former gymnastics officials to testify before US Senate in Larry Nassar abuse probe

Lou Anna Simon, former president of Michigan State University, and Steve Penny, former head of USA Gymnastics, both stepped down from their positions in the wake of criticism that they didn’t do enough to halt the systemic abuse of former doctor Nassar, who has been convicted of two separate incidents of molesting athletes.

Nassar, who was employed by both USA Gymnastics and Michigan State University, was sentenced to up to 175 years and 125 years in prison, as well as 60 years for a separate federal case.

Simon and Penny will testify in front of a US Senate sub-committee, though testimony may be limited as they have a right to not answer any lines of questioning which may lead to their own incrimination.

The US Congress and the Department of Education are currently holding their own investigations into the scandal, as some of the abuses may have occurred at US athletic federations and schools. The entire USA Gymnastics board resigned once the scandal became public, along with the head of the US Olympic Committee.

Taking pine bark extract a few days before a long-haul flight reduces symptoms of jet lag

Image: Taking pine bark extract a few days before a long-haul flight reduces symptoms of jet lag

(Natural News)
People who experience symptoms of jet lag could benefit from some pine bark extract at hand. A study published in the journal Minerva Cardioangiologica found that consuming pine tree extract for a few days before a long-haul flight may lessen the severity and time period of jet lag symptoms.

To specifically examine the effects of the pine extract on jet lag symptoms, researchers from D’Annunzio University in Pescara, Italy recruited people to take Pycnogenol daily for one week two days before a seven- to nine-hour flight. They assigned 32 study participants to take 50 milligrams of the extract three times per day, and 30 study participants to a control group.

In the first part of the two-part study, the participants who took the extract and completed the study got a 56 percent lower score on a scale that measured jet lag symptoms, such as fatigue, grogginess, and insomnia, two days after their flight, compared to the control group. In addition, their symptoms persisted for an average of 18.2 hours, while the symptoms of the control group lasted for 39.3 hours on average.

The researchers did the same procedure for the second part of the study, except the participants went through a brain scan within 28 hours of their flight. Participants in the control group exhibited more swelling in the brain compared to those who took the pine bark extract. In addition, the researchers found that their short-term memory was also more damaged, and the severity of their memory problems was associated to the amount of swelling in their lower limbs.

Symptoms of jet lag may possibly be associated with the swelling of the brain, according to the researchers. They also suggested that the pine tree extract helps by preventing swelling both in the brain and in the limbs.

Earlier studies have shown that Pycnogenol, the pine bark extract, reduced problems linked with air travel such as swelling and blood clotting. The extract also reduced symptoms of jet. These findings were discovered even these studies were not designed to particularly address jet lag. (Related: Great News for Holiday Travelers: Pine Bark Cuts Jet Lag in Half.)

Other tips on beating jet lag

The circadian rhythms are interrupted when you move through time zones. Here are some tips to fight jet lag:

  • Sleep well before your flight – Some people intentionally stay awake before their long-haul flight in hopes of sleeping throughout the flight. However, this is a mistake because last minute changes to your routine will only make it more difficult to adjust to new time zones. Having a good sleep before the flight will make you more capable of coping with jet lag.
  • Opt for a flight that arrives in daylight – As much as possible do not book flights that arrive at night. If you arrived in daylight, it will be easier to stay awake and you are more likely to get out and explore.
  • Know your plane – Two of the best airplanes are the A350s and A380s. They have hi-tech humidification systems that help the air retain moisture and LED lighting systems that can create 16.7 million shades of color simulating natural phases of the day. These are helpful in fighting jet lag.
  • Book a flight with a stopover – You can split up your flight or take flights with stopovers. It will give your body more time to adjust to the new routine.
  • Avoid alcohol – Avoid drinking alcohol before your flight because its effects at altitude will increase tiredness and cause dehydration, which make it harder to beat jet lag.
