Pagan Holiday Known As “St.Valentine’s Day”

The Romans celebrated a Pagan holiday on February 14th to honor Juno Fructifier, Queen of the Roman gods and goddesses as well as goddess of marriage. In one ritual, women would submit their names to a common box and men would each draw one out. These two would be a couple for the duration of the festival (and at times for the entire following year). Both rituals were designed to promote not only fertility, but also life generally.

February 15th & Feast of Lupercalia:
On February 15, Romans celebrated Luperaclia, honoring Faunus, god of fertility. Men would go to a grotto dedicated to Lupercal, the wolf god, located at the foot of Palatine Hill and where Romans believed that the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus, were suckled by a she-wolf. The men would sacrifice a goat, don its skin, and run around, hitting women with small whips, an act which was supposed to ensure fertility.

St. Valentine, Christian Priest:

According to one story, Roman emperor Claudius II imposed a ban on marriages because too many young men were dodging the draft by getting married (only single men had to enter the army). A Christian priest named Valentinus was caught performing secret marriages and sentenced to death. While awaiting execution, young lovers visited him with notes about how much better love is than war — the first valentines. The execution occurred in 269 CE on February 14th.

Another Valentinus was a priest jailed for helping Christians. During his stay he fell in love with the jailers daughter and sent her notes signed from your Valentine. He was eventually beheaded and buried on the Via Flaminia. Reportedly Pope Julius I built a basilica over his grave. A third and final Valentinius was the bishop of Terni and he was also martyred, with his relics being taken back to Terni.

Christianity Takes Over Valentines Day:
In 469, emperor Gelasius declared February 14th a holy day in honor of Valentinus instead of the pagan god Lupercus. This allowed Christianity to take over some of the celebrations of love and fertility which had perviously occurred in the context of paganism. Pagan celebrations were reworked to fit the martyr theme — Christianity did not approve of rituals that encouraged sexuality. Instead of pulling girls names from boxes, both boys and girls chose the names of martyred saints from a box

In 313 A.D. Roman Emperor Constantine the Great legalized Christianity and ended Rome’s persecution of Christians. In 380 A.D. Christianity is made the OFFICIAL state religion of the Roman Empire. These actions not only enabled the teachings of Christianity to spread unhindered within the empire, it encouraged non-Christians to convert to the once-persecuted religion.

The pagans, however, who adopted Christianity as their religion did not entirely abandon the traditions and practices they held before their “conversion.” One of these traditions brought into the church was the fertility celebration known as the Lupercalia:
“Yet the vestiges of superstition were not absolutely obliterated, and the festival of the Lupercalia, whose origin had preceded the foundation of Rome, was still celebrated under the reign of Anthemius.” (The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire by Edward Gibbons, Chapter 36, Part 3)

Western Roman Emperor Anthemius ruled the empire from 467 to 472 A.D. Mr. Gibbons goes on to state:

“After the conversion of the Imperial city (Rome), the Christians still continued, in the month of February, the annual celebration of the Lupercalia; to which they ascribed a secret and mysterious influence on the genial powers of the animal and vegetable world. “

Another good clip that is available on youtube is right here called “Shocking Truth About Valentines Day”

In A.D. 494, Pope Gelasius renamed the festival of Juno Februata as the “Feast of the Purification of the Virgin Mary.” The date of its observance was later changed from February 14 to February 2, then changed back to the 14. It is also known as Candlemas, the Presentation of the Lord, the Purification of the Blessed Virgin and the Feast of the Presentation of Christ in the Temple.

After Constantine had made the Roman church’s brand of Christianity the official religion of the Roman Empire (A.D. 325), church leaders wanted to do away with the pagan festivals of the people. Lupercalia was high on their list. But the Roman citizens thought otherwise.

It was not until A.D. 496 that the church at Rome was able to do anything about Lupercalia. Powerless to get rid of it, Pope Gelasius instead changed it from February 15 to the 14th and called it St. Valentine’s Day. It was named after one of that church’s saints, who, in A.D. 270, was executed by the emperor for his beliefs.

According to the Catholic Encyclopedia, “At least three different Saint Valentines, all of them martyrs, are mentioned in early martyrologies under the date of 14 February. One is described as a priest at Rome, another as bishop of Interamna (modern Terni), and these two seem both to have suffered in the second half of the third century and to have been buried on the Flaminian Way, but at different distances from the city…Of the third Saint Valentine, who suffered in Africa with a number of companions, nothing is further known.” Several biographies of different men named Valentine were merged into one “official” St. Valentine.

But who was the original Valentine? What does the name Valentine mean?

Valentine comes from the Latin Valentinus, which derives from valens—“to be strong, powerful, mighty.” The Bible describes a man with a similar title: “And Cush begat Nimrod: he began to be a mighty one in the earth. He was a mighty hunter before the Lord: wherefore it is said, Even as Nimrod the mighty hunter before the Lord” (Gen. 10:8-9). He was said to have hunted with bow and arrow.

As mentioned, the Romans celebrated Lupercalia to honor the hunter god Lupercus. To the Greeks, from whom the Romans had copied most of their mythology, Lupercus was known as Pan, the god of light. The Phoenicians worshipped the same deity as Baal, the sun god. Baal was one of many names or titles for Nimrod, a mighty hunter, especially of wolves. He was also the founder and first lord of Babel (Gen. 10:10-12). Defying God, Nimrod was the originator of the Babylonian Mystery Religion, whose mythologies have been copied by the Egyptians, the Greeks, the Romans and a multitude of other ancient peoples. Under different names or titles—Pan, Lupercus, Saturn, Osiris—Nimrod is the strong man and hunter-warrior god of the ancients.

But what does the heart symbol have to do with a day honoring Nimrod/Valentine?

The title Baal means “lord” or “master,” and is mentioned throughout the Bible as the god of pagans. God warned His people not to worship or even tolerate the ways of Baal (Nimrod). In ancient Chaldean (the language of the Babylonians), bal, which is similar to Baal, meant, “heart.” This is where the Valentine heart symbol originated.

Now notice the name Cupid. It comes from the Latin verb cupere, meaning “to desire.” Cupid was the son of Venus, Roman goddess of beauty and love. Also known as Eros in ancient Greece, he was the son of Aphrodite. According to myth, he was responsible for impregnating numerous goddesses and mortals. Cupid was a child-like archer (remember, Nimrod was a skilled archer). Mythology describes Cupid as having both a cruel and happy personality. He would use his invisible arrows, tipped with gold, to strike unsuspecting men and women, causing them to fall madly in love. He did not do this for their benefit, but to drive them crazy with intense passion, to make their lives miserable, and to laugh at the results.

Many of the gods of the Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Assyrians and others were modeled after one man—Nimrod.

Red sage, also known as Chinese sage, found to protect the kidneys of people with severe acute pancreatitis and obstructive jaundice


Image: Red sage, also known as Chinese sage, found to protect the kidneys of people with severe acute pancreatitis and obstructive jaundice

(Natural News)
A study published in the African Journal of Traditional, Complementary and Alternative Medicines revealed that Salvia miltiorrhiza, more commonly known as red sage or danshen in Chinese, may protect the kidneys in patients with severe acute pancreatitis (SAP) and obstructive jaundice (OJ). A team of Chinese researchers examined  288 rat models of SAP and OJ as part of research.

High levels of serum creatinine in the blood indicate that the kidneys aren’t in optimal health. The researchers found that serum CREA levels were significantly lower in treated SAP models at six and 12 hours after operation compared with the controls. Likewise, treated OJ models had significantly lower serum CREA levels at 21 and 28 days after operation. The scientists also observed that the staining intensity of Bax protein of kidney was lower in the treated SAP group than the controls at three and six hours post operation. Furthermore, the experts touted that the apoptosis index in the kidney of OJ rats was relatively lower in the treatment group compared with the controls.

Salvia miltiorrhizae is able to significantly improve the pathological changes in the kidney of SAP and OJ rats, which is mainly manifested as reducing inflammatory cell infiltration, protecting glomerular capillary, decreasing the shedding and necrosis of renal tubular epithelial cells, and stabilizing the structure of cell organelles,” the researchers concluded.

“Additionally, Salvia miltiorrhizae also has some protective effects on excessive apoptosis-induced renal injury in SAP and OJ through downregulating the expression of Bax protein. This protective effect is beneficial to the recovery of renal function. Salvia miltiorrhizae has features of diverse pharmacological actions, low cost and few side-effects, it has better application prospect and economic values, and deserves to be popularized,” the experts added.

More studies demonstrate red sage’s benefits on kidney health

The recent findings add to mounting evidence of red sage’s beneficial effects on kidney health. For instance, a meta-analysis published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine revealed that taking red sage formulation alone or in combination with other drug treatment may mitigate the risk of renal disease in children with Henoch-Schönlein Purpura (HSP). (Related: Five Elements And Five Reasons We Need Traditional Chinese Medicine In America.)

The researchers assessed five clinical trials with a cohort population of 513 children aged two to 14 years old. The scientists observed that taking red sage formulations – including injections and tablets – as an add-on to symptomatic therapy resulted in reduced likelihood of developing renal disease at six to 12 months after treatment compared with symptomatic therapy alone. The experts did not note any adverse medical events following the treatment.

“Danshen formulations may help prevent renal disease in children with HSP without serious side-effects… Large, properly randomized, placebo-controlled, double-blind studies are needed to substantiate its use,” the researchers wrote.

Another animal study demonstrated that red sage may help mitigate the effects of excessive iron that often results in kidney tissue damage. According to the study, iron-overloaded mice models given either a low-dose or a high-dose red sage formulation exhibited significant reductions in iron levels in the kidney and marked improvements in body weight.

The results also showed that treatment with red sage formulations helped decrease the concentrations of blood urea nitrogen, creatinine and malondialdehyde. Furthermore, the scientists observed that red sage formulations helped boost glutathione peroxidase and superoxide dismutase activities, and prevent the onset of kidney cell deaths.

“Our results preliminarily demonstrated that Danshen injection could significantly restore abnormal function and ameliorate the pathological changes of the kidney in iron-overloaded mice. These remarkable protective effects against renal injury caused by excess iron may be attributed to the prevention of iron deposition and inhibition of lipid peroxidation and nephrocyte apoptosis,” the scientists said.

The findings were published in the journal PLOS One. Find more news coverage of medicinal herbs at Herbs.news.

A Well Known CIA Pilot Claims That The Moon Has 250 Million Citizens







Next Story

You may think it’s quite ludicrous to even contemplate that the Moon could be harbouring as many as 250 million citizens, but it’s not. Although this may not be true, those who have looked into it know that strange anomalies have surrounded the Moon for decades. “Contemplation without investigation is the height of ignorance,” a quote attributed to Einstein holds true here. If you actually do some independent research, you might be quite shocked with what you find, especially when it comes to the credibility of the sources.

As far back as 1970, two well-respected members of the Soviet Academy of Sciences, Michael Vasin and Alexander Shcherbakov, created a hypothesis suggesting that the Moon is a spaceship created by unknown beings. Fast forward to today, and we have former high-ranking members of the military and intelligence agencies sharing their knowledge with regards to strange things that are happening on the Moon. A few examples are listed in the articles linked below.

Take for example Timothy Good, one of the world’s leading UFO researchers, who has lectured at universities, schools, and many organizations, including the Institute of Medical Laboratory Sciences, the Royal Canadian Military Institute, the Royal Geographical Society, the Royal Naval Air Reserve Branch, the House of Lords All-Party UFO Study Group, and the Oxford and Cambridge Union societies.

Good says that a former member of MI6 revealed her conversation with Neil Armstrong at a NASA conference, when he confirmed there were “other” spacecraft on the Moon when Apollo 11 landed in 1969. Armstrong also confirmed the CIA was behind the coverup. He also goes into more detail about it in this 2013 lecture.

Dr. John Brandenburg, the Deputy Manager of the Clementine Mission to the Moon, which was part of a joint space project between the Ballistic Missile Defence Organization (BMDO) and NASA, has also made some fascinating revelations. The mission discovered water at the Moon’s poles in 1994 (Source: page 16 of 18)(source)(source). But, according to Brandenburg, the Clementine Mission had an ulterior agenda:

“The Clementine Mission was a photo reconnaissance mission basically to check out if someone was building bases on the moon that we didn’t know about. Were they expanding they expanding them? . . . Of all the pictures I’ve seen from the moon that show possible structures, the most impressive is a picture of a miles wide recto-linear structure. This looked unmistakably artificial, and it shouldn’t be there. As somebody in the space defence community, I look on any such structure on the moon with great concern because it isn’t ours, there’s no way we could have built such a thing. It means someone else is up there.”

The quote above comes from the documentary, “Aliens on the Moon.”

Here is an interesting lecture Brandenburg gave with regards to strange anomalies that have been found on Mars. You can read more about that in detail here.

Members of the Society For Planetary SETI Research (SPSR) have recently published a paper in the Journal of Space Exploration about certain features on the far side of the moon that appear in the crater Paracelsus C. Titled “Image Analysis of Unusual Structures on the Far Side of the Moon in the Crater Paracelsus C,” it argues that these features might be artificial in origin, meaning someone other than a human being built them and put them there. It suggest that life could be contained within the moon as well.

Keep in mind that there is an entire side of the moon we can never see, unless we use probes. A new study published in the Journal of Space Exploration titled “The Mounds of Cydonia: Elegant Geology, or Tetrahedral Geometry and Reactions of Pythagoras and Dirac?” has added to the already robust evidence pointing to “artificial surface interventions” on Mars. The paper also mentions that it adds to the evidence which exists already that strongly point to artificial surface interventions.

So you see, you’re not crazy if you see a headline above and actually contemplate if it’s true or not.

The CIA Officer

His name is John Lear, and as a captain for a major US Airline, he’s  flown over 160 different types of aircrafts in over 50 different countries. He holds 17 world speed records in the Lear Jet and  holds every airline certificate issued by the Federal Aviation Administration. Mr. Lear has flown missions worldwide for the CIA and other government agencies. A former Nevada State Senator candidate, he is the son of William P. Lear, designer of the Lear Jet executive airplane, the 8-track stereo, and founder of Lear Siegler Corporation. Lear became interested in the subject of UFO’s 13 months after talking with United States Air Force Personnel who had witnessed a UFO landing at Bentwaters AFB, near London, England, and three small aliens walking up to the Wing Commander.

In the video below, he shows several images and describes structures, technologies, city like structures and roads. The study mentioned earlier published in the Journal of Space Exploration also mentions something along these lines. In the lecture linked above by Brandenburg, he describes the same thing on Mars.

Below you can watch a lecture given by John Lear regarding his research.

The last video is part 1 of a 4 part series done by Project Camelot.

What’s fascinating is the fact that a lot of his information actually corroborates with other witness testimony, as well as the studies coming out bringing more attention to strange structures on the moon that appear to be extraterrestrial.

Detroit Cop Known Online as ‘FatalForce’ Cleared in Killing of Teen


With a Michigan State Police trooper in the spotlight for the alleged murder of an unarmed teen who was riding through a Detroit neighborhood on an ATV, it can be easy to forget that the Detroit Police Department also notched a killing of at least one unarmed teen in 2017.

The department had gone about 18 months without killing any citizens, when, in February, Officer Jerold Blanding chased 19-year-old Raynard Burton behind a house and shot him after an alleged struggle. Officers said they pursued Burton, who later turned out to be a carjacking suspect, because he’d been speeding. When Burton crashed into and ran from his vehicle, Blanding eventually left his partner behind to go after him on foot. Once out of view, Detroit police said the teen “lunged” at Blanding in an attempt to grab his gun, causing him to fire the single, deadly shot.

Last week, as the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office doled out murder and misconduct charges to local law enforcement officers accused of acting inappropriately throughout the year, it declined to charge Blanding in Burton’s death. With no eye witness accounts or body- or dash camera video apparently available for the Detroit police-led probe into the officer’s actions, the county prosecutor described signs of a close-range bullet wound as corroborating Blanding’s version of events and determined the shooting was justified.

It’s the third time Blanding, a more than 20-year veteran of the Detroit Police Department, has been cleared of wrongdoing in the shooting of a citizen. The two previous off-duty and non-fatal encounters have prompted excessive-use-of-force lawsuits against the department, with one suit resulting in a six-figure payout for a victim and the other still pending. Blanding was never charged by the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office in those shootings. He was, however, found by the Detroit Police Department to have inappropriately used force in a 2010 incident, according to a list of citizen complaints filed against him and obtained through the Freedom of Information Act. He was also disciplined early in his career for shooting a pigeon with his department-issued Glock, according to a report by the Detroit News. By the time Blanding killed Burton in February, he had made his Instagram handle “FatalForce.”

In the more recent non-fatal shooting at the heart of a civil rights suit against DPD, Blanding is accused of unloading more than a dozen bullets into the vehicle of an unarmed Detroit resident who was involved in a domestic dispute with the mother of his child. According to victim DeMar Parker’s account of the 2015 incident, his child’s mother was dating a Detroit police officer who apparently called two of his fellow officers for help, one of whom was Blanding.

When the un-uniformed officers arrived and began to close in, Parker said he ran to his car and took off, driving a few blocks before turning the car around to head back in the direction of his home. He said he decided to return using the same road in an effort to get the license plate number of the vehicle in which the officers had shown up.

As Parker headed back down the street, he said one of the officers stepped into the middle of the road and pointed his gun directly at him. Parker said he swerved to avoid him when Blanding, who Parker said had been standing on the sidewalk, suddenly opened fire.

The UN Is Making Their Presence Known At Rendition Centers In Chicago

 

This is one of the “black sites” where torture of illegal detention of Chicago residents has taken place. These Chicago style black sites are appearing all around the country and they were linked to being a part of the Jade Helm 15 operation. Now they are being linked to rendition sites in Chicago, the announced future home of UN occupation troops.

It’s happening a lot faster than I thought it would. What is happening you may ask? The UN takeover over of Chicago is underway and I am shocked at the rapidity of the movement. Please consider the following email that is representative of several that I have received over the past few days:

Dear Dave,

I have lived in North Chicago for decades and I know when something is not right. There are a lot things I could mention but the presence of black helicopters that are buzzing houses is very upsettting with what I now know is going on as reported in your articles on the United Nations taekover of Chicago. I don’t see how this is not connected with the planned UN takeover of Chicago. What can you tell me? Thanks for all you do.

Robert

I can’t speak to what Robert and others who have reached out to me are seeing. However, I can speak to what I am being told by one of my sources in which he is saying that the Chicago black sites are now resurfacing, in their notoriety. The black sites were prominently featured in the Independent Media back in 2015.

The Blacksites were a local form of the NDAA that surfaced in Chicago. It is where people would go to disappear for awhile. People who were arrested and taken to the site were subjected to extreme treatment, denied basic liberties including the right to an attorney. Infowars, at the time, even went so far as to send a news team to the primary black site.

I was recently asked by one of my best sources whatever became of my investigation into the black sites. I reported that the topic faded away without any real resolution. At that point I was told that my source had reliable information that UN personnel, along with DHS, were making their presence known at the primary black site. The implication is that the UN/DHS is going to be involved in FEMA camp type activities in regard to the planned “policing” of Chicago by UN “Peacekeepers”. It strongly appears that the UN is going be doing a lot more than patrolling the streets trying to stop gun violence as claimed by Commissioner Boykin of the Cook County County Commissioners.

Based upon this revelation, it is imperative that we look at the topic of FEMA camps and foreign involvement on American soil. Here is what we know about foreign troop involvement in Chicago.

From FM 39.4: Training Foreigners To Take Over the Camps

“This appendix addresses aspects of developing confinement officers in other countries. For the purposes of this appendix, the terms foreign and HN confinement officers are synonymous”.

For several years, I have interviewed numerous eyewitnesses on my talk show about the presence of foreign troops (mostly Russian) training on American soil. Sherrie Wilcox has presented videotape and still photo evidence. Others have provided their firsthand accounts of these events. I have detailed the existence of a FEMA bilateral agreement with the Russians to bring in 15,000 soldiers for “disaster training”.  And despite all the evidence, there are people who have roundly criticized The Common Sense Show for accurately claiming there are foreign troops on American soil. Those who have refused to look at the evidence owe my people an apology. Second, the “bury their head in the sand crowd” ,will never know what will hit them when all hell breaks loose.

Stop! The following may contains information which is troublesome to those who suffer from cognitive dissonance and corporate media group think. 

What lies below is more proof that it will be foreign troops killing American citizens, not American soldiers who cannot be counted on to violate their oath to the Constitution.

Training U.S. Trainers

N-43. Soldiers and Marines w

ho are assigned training missions receive a course of preparation to deal with the specific requirements of developing the target HN confinement officers (i.e. foreign detention officers). The course should emphasize the cultural background of the HN, introduce its language (to include specific confinement-related terms and phrases) and provide insights into cultural tips for developing a good rapport with HN personnel.

The beginning of this section attempts to create the illusion that foreign troops will be under the complete control of Army personnel. However, I believe it is likely that the mass exterminations of the detainees will take place when the American military is withdrawn from the facilities. If there was any doubt as to the fact that our soon-to-be jailers will be foreign and will have no hesitation to carry out mass genocide, the following regulation from the document should remove all doubt.

Training Methods
N-48. Training programs are designed to prepare HN personnel to eventually train themselves. Indigenous trainers are the best trainers and should be used to the maximum extent possible.

The day that the detainees hear the engines start up and the American military vacates the concentration camps (e.g. blacksites), is the day that they all better “get right with God”.

An Irrelevant Question

We often hear the question: “Will American soldiers fire upon American citizens in a martial law roundup of millions of Americans”? The answer to that question is a moot point. It is clear from analyzing data from Army concentration camp materials, that American soldiers will be used  to round up detainees. However, the camps in which people will be deported to will ultimately be staffed and run by foreign troops. This document will make this point abundantly clear. The coming UN occupation of Chicago is merely a foothold to this end

FEMA Camps Are Slave Labor Camps

As was the case with the NAZIS, slave labor will be a part of the landscape as evidenced by the following Army document.

Unanswered Questions

From the perspective of history, concentration camps are notoriously known for being institutions of murder. Based on this notion, I scoured the Army concentration camp manual entitled FM 3-39.40 Internment and Resettlement Operations (PDF), and found only scant reference to the subject of deaths in the concentration camps. Now wait a minute, this document painstakingly describes interrogation processes, food preparation, the transport and care of detainees, but they barely mention how they are going to deal with dead bodies?

In a facility filled with a divergent population with regard to age, health status and physical conditioning, should the authorities be concerned with what happens when an inmate dies from an unexpected heart attack or stroke? What would they do with the dead bodies?

If proper preparations are not taken for the proper care and disposal of dead bodies, wouldn’t that imperil the health of fellow inmates, not to mention the guards and other military personnel? This should be a primary concern for any facility. However, this is the one area where the FEMA camp Army manual is relatively silent.

The following passages speaks to how the Army deals with the subject of death as it is related to the concentration camps:

5-69. When a detainee in U.S. custody dies, the attending medical officer will immediately furnish the detention facility commander or hospital commander (or the commander of the unit that exercised custody over the detainee if the death did not occur in a facility) with the—

-Detainee’s full name.

-Detainee’s ISN/capture tag (mandatory).

-Date, place, and circumstances of the detainee’s death.

-Initial assessment as to whether the detainee’s death was, or was not, the result of the deceased’s own misconduct.

-The initial assessment as to the cause of death.

 

What is interesting about 5-69 is the cause of death is not categorized in any meaningful manner except to say that there is a conscious effort to determine if the death of the inmate was due to “their own actions”.

5-72. …the Office of the Armed Forces Medical Examiner is responsible for completing a final DD Form 2064 that will include a statement that “death was (or was not) the result of the deceased’s own misconduct” in the block labeled “Circumstances Surrounding Death Due to External Causes.”

Notice in the above (5-72) that only meaningful categories of inmate death are (1) the detainee’s own misconduct and (2) death due to external causes.

5-73. The NRDC will notify the ICRC of all detainee deaths. The NDRC will maintain detainee DD Forms 2064 for the period of hostilities or occupation, for the duration of any other military operation, or as otherwise directed. When authorized, the NDRC will archive detainee DD Forms 2064.

There is a key phrase that barely goes unnoticed. the phrase is “The NDRC will maintain detainee DD Forms 2064 for the period of the hostilities or occupation…”  In other words, there will be no Nuremberg trials for genocide because the records will be not be permanently maintained (i.e. destroyed).

It’s What They Are Not Saying That Is Worrisome, It Is What They Are Not Saying

For a manual which spells out, in detail, every possible consideration of how detainees will be handled, they omit the disposal of dead bodies. Will there be a military regulation that nobody can drop dead in the camp of a heart attack? Or, is this because except for the occasional spontaneous death, the Army seems very unconcerned about disposing of dead bodies at a facility of mass detention? I can only come to one conclusion, most of the deaths associated with the detainees, will not occur at the facility itself and this explains why the Army is seemingly unconcerned with this issue. 

This opens a whole host of possibilities. Are the unhealthy going to be transported to a tertiary facility to be humanely treated while their medical conditions will be treated? I think it is fairly easy to see where I am going with this. Can we really expect the “authorities” who have committed an inhumane act by incarcerating people for no legitimate reason to suddenly discover their conscience and treat the infirm with compassion and dignity?

It has been established that (1) the UN plans to occupy Chicago and (2) Blacksites which tortures suspects exist within Chicago and, (3) UN/DHS personnel are taking a big interest in these Blacksites.

Police Torture Center In Chicago .

With regard to law enforcement in Chicago, we are acquiescing in the face of tyranny. We are accepting thuggery and the existence of torture programs which are supported and funded by our locally elected leaders. For those of you that do not think that FEMA camps are real, you may want to pay close attention to the rest of the contents of this article. To those who are blinded by cognitive dissonance, rest assured that we have operational FEMA camps torturing and killing Americans today. The proof resides in the following paragraphs.

In an investigative report, The Guardian boldly alleges that rogue units of the Chicago Police Department maintains a secret interrogation compound in Homan Square. Citizens have accused the Chicago police of having subjected Americans to rendition. Victims are unable to be found by family or attorneys while undergoing enhanced interrogation similar to the CIA.

Take the case of Brian Church. He was not processed and he was shackled to a bench for a day. Nobody knew where he was at and he was not allowed to speak with anyone. However, Brian was luckier than many, he came out alive.

 

 

Of course, the police deny all claims. However, if the Chicago police are innocent of the charges, then why did they harass former Infowars reporter, Joe Biggs, for attempting to investigate the alleged scene of illegal detention and torture?

In the following two videos, Infowars reporter Joe Biggs, describes  how he was harassed by Chicago undercover police and kicked off of a public sidewalk outside of a secret black torture site in Chicago. If the police have nothing to hide, then they should have opened the doors of this alleged “black site” and allowed Mr. Biggs the right to investigate the allegations with the full cooperation of the police. Secondly, Biggs summarizes his findings with regard to this facility. A tip of the hat to Mr. Biggs and the Infowars team for some very “gutsy” reporting. I just cannot help wondering if this kind of quality reporting isn’t wasted on a soulless nation of sheep who will likely deny the content of the reports because it is easier to stay in denial than it is to actually do something.

 

The coincidence of the intention of the United Nations to patrol the streets of Chicago is concerning enough. However, when the UN presence is accompanied by black site torture centers, we should all be very concerned.

With all the information that is publicly available about the planned UN takeover, I find it hard to accept that the people of Chicago have not launched a recall effort against their public officials that think this is a good idea. However, Steve Quayle has described this blind ignorance as “DUD-DUMB UNTIL DEATH”.

Plastics industry has known for years that it’s polluting oceans

But it has chosen to “deny, confuse, and fight regulation.”

The issue of plastic pollution in the oceans may be a recent revelation for ordinary citizens, but it’s nothing new for the plastics industry. A report by the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL), titled “Fueling Plastics,” says that plastic producers have known at least since the 1970s that their products pollute the ocean. Nevertheless, the industry has continually denied responsibility and fought regulation.

Plastic is a unique pollutant in that it persists for so long. It does not break down (except to break into smaller pieces, easier for wildlife, even plankton, to ingest) and it bio-accumulates, leading to contamination of a living host. The report indicates that the industry first became aware of problems in the 1950s, but would’ve had no excuse to claim ignorance by the 1970s.

Steven Feit, lead study author and an attorney for CIEL, said in a press release:

“Unfortunately, the answer to both when the plastic industry knew their products would contribute to massive public harms and what they did with that information suggests they followed Big Oil’s playbook on climate change: deny, confuse, and fight regulation and effective solutions.”

It’s depressing to think how different would be now if the plastics industry had acknowledged its inherent troubles a half-century ago and taken the responsible action. It could have returned to the “fishing gear and land-based disposables… made of bio-degradable products such as hemp rope or paper bags” that were commonplace prior to the 1950s. Instead, we’ve ended up where we are now, with one respected source predicting more plastic than fish by weight in the world’s oceans by 2050.

But hindsight is 20-20, as they say, so what really matters is what’s being done now. Unfortunately, the status quo remains. From the report:

“The plastics industry has usually taken two parallel positions on the question of marine waste. First, it claims that it is only responsible for plastic resin pellets and flakes because end products are out of the industry’s control. Second, it promotes reuse, recycling, and proper waste management.”

We know the latter is failing miserably. In 2014, only 9.4 percent of all discarded plastics were recycled in the United States. That’s 3.12 million tons out of 33.3 million tons (via Life Without Plastic book). Clearly this is not a viable solution.

There is the effort made on the part of individuals and households to reduce their plastic consumption, as seen in the growing popularity of the zero waste movement. But, as noble as this is, it’s a mere drop in the bucket when it comes to the industry’s sway.

What we need is accountability on the production end of things. Plastics producers need to be responsible for the entire life cycle of their goods. They need a better plan for recovery and reuse, or else they should not be allowed to produce single-use plastics that are known to be so damaging. Hopefully this report will start to point fingers where they need to go — to the heads of companies whose willful ignorance of a serious situation decades ago has led us to the predicament our entire planet now faces.

What Is Toxic Shame? (The Little-Known Mental Illness)

By Aletheia Luna via Loner Wolf

“SHAME ON YOU!”

How many times did you hear those words as a child?

As children, our teachers would shame us for doing something naughty in class, just as our parents and peer group would occasionally shame us – sometimes intentionally, sometimes unintentionally. The experience certainly wasn’t pleasant, but the shame was temporary and it quickly passed.

We all experience shame sooner or later. Some people even argue that shame is useful because it keeps law and order within our societies by preventing offenders from harming others.

So what’s the big deal?

While shame is a normal (and extremely painful) emotion to go through, it becomes abnormal and highly destructive when we internalize and carry it with us.

WHAT IS TOXIC SHAME?

“Toxic shame” is a term that was first coined by psychologist Silvan Tomkins in the 1960s. Unlike normal shame, toxic shame stays buried within the mind and becomes a part of our self-identity. In other words, a person suffering from toxic shame will experience a chronic sense of worthlessness, low self-esteem, and self-loathing – all connected to the belief that they are innately “shameful” or “bad.” Toxic shame is the internalized and buried shame that rots within us.

WHAT CAUSES TOXIC SHAME?

Toxic shame is most commonly reinforced through childhood experiences. For example, our mother or father may have constantly physically punished us or verbally expressed how ashamed or disappointed they were of us. We may have even adopted the idea that we were shameful indirectly through nonverbal displays from our parents, e.g. our mother or father withholding affection, looking at us in a certain way, favoring our siblings more than us. Shame can also be internalized through experiences at school with our teachers, friends, or other family members. And of course, toxic shame is also caused by extreme forms of abuse like incest, rape, and other forms of sexual assault that cause us to lose our grounding in reality.

Sometimes toxic shame develops from later life traumatic experiences such as living in a dysfunctional or abusive relationship, work incidents in which we are humiliated, repeated rejection from other people and organizations, betrayal, and so forth.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN SHAME AND GUILT?

Don’t confuse guilt with shame: they might seem related, but they are completely different experiences.

Guilt is feeling sorry for something you have done.

Shame is feeling sorry about who you are as a person.

And toxic shame is feeling bad about who you are as a person all the time – it is pervasive.

SYMPTOMS OF TOXIC SHAME

As a person who has suffered from toxic shame, I know how viscerally painful this emotion can be. When toxic shame hangs around you long enough, it gets embedded not only in your mind, but in your body: in your defeated posture, in the way you move, the way you talk, and the way you relate to others.

Toxic shame can sabotage your best efforts and undermine every good experience that you have. This is why I feel that it’s so important for people to be aware of this ‘little-known’ mental illness. No, it is not a classic mental illness like anxiety or bipolar disorder, but I believe that it forms the very basis of many major mental illnesses out there, and thus, it is vital that we explore and understand it.

If you’re suffering from toxic shame, there will be a number of signs:

  • Frequently reliving traumatic memories from the past that cause shame
  • General suspicion and mistrust of other people (even when they’re trying to be nice)
  • Self-loathing and low self-esteem
  • Feelings of chronic unworthiness
  • Dysfunctional relationships with others (often involving codependency)
  • Self-sabotage
  • “Shame anxiety” – the fear of experiencing shame
  • Feelings of being a “fraud” or phony (also known as imposter syndrome)
  • Self-martyrdom and self-victimization
  • “Settling” for unfulfilling jobs, relationships, or situations
  • An angry or defensive persona (as a defense mechanism)
  • People-pleasing (to compulsively try and feel better about oneself)
  • Perfectionism
  • Frequently feeling a sense of irrational guilt
  • Addictive tendencies (to escape and numb the shame)
  • Mental illnesses that branch off toxic shame such as depression, anxiety, PTSD

Common core beliefs that a person who suffers from toxic shame carries may include:

  • I am unlovable
  • I am worthless
  • I am stupid
  • I am a bad person
  • I’m a phony
  • I don’t matter
  • I’m defective
  • I’m selfish
  • I am a failure
  • I am ugly
  • I shouldn’t have been born

HOW TO HEAL YOUR TOXIC SHAME

Believing that you are innately and fundamentally unworthy, inadequate, and despicable as a human being is incredibly hard to live with. If you are struggling with this issue I’m sure that you don’t need to be told how painful it is.

Having struggled with toxic shame, I want to share with you what helped me get out of this self-destructive mindset and turn my life around. I hope that this advice helps you too:

1. LOOK INTO THE MIRROR

The mirror exercise is one that you need to prepare a space for by first relaxing and setting aside five to ten minutes. Once you have set aside a quiet space, sit in front of a mirror (or stand if you prefer). Look directly into your eyes and allow yourself to feel any of the emotions that arise. When I first did this exercise I cried … all the pent up emotions I had been storing just flooded out, particularly all the self-hatred I was carrying. So let yourself cry if you feel the need to. You might also experience feelings such as disgust, embarrassment, shyness, awkwardness, or anger … and it is OK to experience these.

Once you’ve let any emotions out, it is now time to let the outside in – by that, I mean gaze at yourself in the mirror. Look into your eyes and think of something sincerely loving and caring to say such as “I love you,” “I accept you,” “You are worthy,” “You are beautiful.” You can spend anywhere from three to ten minutes doing this.

When you are finished, genuinely smile at yourself in the mirror. Notice whether your face looks different or not. Interestingly, mirror work has the tendency to soften the face or slightly changing its appearance. I also like to finish by cradling myself in a hug, and I encourage you to as well.

2. RELEASE TENSION FROM YOUR BODY

Our thoughts, emotions, and traumas are stored within our bodies as sickness and muscle pain. The most common area where shame is stored is in the lower back and stomach region (check out the many different bodily correspondences of muscle tension here). In order to facilitate the process of healing, I highly recommend that you learn how to calm and soothe your body through practices such as yoga, qi gong, tai chi, massage therapy, or simple stretching everyday. One of my favorite tools to use is the AcuBall ball which gives an amazingly satisfying deep tissue massage. You might also like to use foam rollers that athletes use or other myofascial release tools that you can buy from Amazon or your local sports store.

3. BECOME AWARE OF YOUR SELF-DESTRUCTIVE THOUGHTS

Explore your core beliefs and cognitive distortions. These are essentially the darkened lenses that you see yourself through. Keep a private journal and record these thoughts and your feelings about them. It’s important that you keep a journal because otherwise there will be no way to record your insights, progress, and inner work. Read my article on journalling to gain more assistance.

4. PRACTICE AUTHENTIC SELF-COMPASSION

Self-compassion is about showing yourself genuine concern, care, and love. It can take a while to shift from a self-hating mindset to a self-compassionate mindset, so I recommend starting small. Do one caring this for yourself every day. For example, you might like to repeat a comforting statement like “I am worthy of love” or take care of your physical needs. Start wherever the biggest concern for you is. For example, if you have “settled” for unfulfilling friendships, try to remove these people from your life and seek out more supportive friends. If you have physical health concerns such as obesity, change your diet. Perform every act as an expression of love for yourself.

Self-compassion is something that needs to be practiced every.single.day. No exceptions. No matter whether you plan for it or let it come spontaneously, ensure that you’re always seeking to care for yourself in some way. In this manner, you will slowly reprogram your unconscious mind by asserting that yes, you are worthy, loveable, intelligent, strong, and capable.

5. RE-PARENT YOUR INNER CHILD

Toxic shame has its roots in childhood abandonment, abuse, and trauma. As such, feeling better will almost always go back to accessing your childhood self – the very part of you that was confronted with the trauma in the first place. Learning how to interact with and care for your younger self is called inner child work, and there are a number of reasons why this practice is powerful. Firstly, inner child work helps you to access feelings that you may have repressed and dissociated from in an attempt to protect yourself as a child. By re-experiencing these emotions, you will be able to release them from your body and mind and generate deep healing. Secondly, inner child work is tremendously insightful and revealing: often some of the most important questions you’ve carried consciously or subconsciously are answered while doing inner child work. Thirdly, inner child work is self-compassion in action. When you learn how to re-parent your inner child you develop a deep and strong connection with yourself which has a ripple effect on the rest of your life.

Some of the best ways to connect with your inner child include painting and drawing (art therapy), creative writing, meditating with pictures of yourself as a child, visualizations, and doing whatever you loved to do as a child. By learning how to listen to and care for that vulnerable place inside of you, toxic shame will have no place to grow. For more help, read my article on re-parenting your inner child.

What Is The Massive Document Leak Known As The Paradise Papers?

An enormous document leak of over 13 million files was revealed on Sunday, in what is being collectively referred to as the Paradise Papers. It’s one of the biggest data leaks in history, and involves the elaborate offshore assets of top politicians and corporations, as well as some of the world’s wealthiest individuals and celebrities.

Millions of the leaked files come from a single company, Appleby, which is based in Bermuda and offers offshore legal services. Appleby has denied any wrongdoing in relation to the findings from the documents.

The Paradise Papers closely resemble a document leak from last year known as the Panama Papers, which also detailed the offshore holdings and tax avoidance schemes of some of the world’s most powerful people.

The Panama Papers caused a significant international fallout when they were released in April 2016, even leading to the resignation of Iceland’s prime minister amid protests and the surrounding controversy. The effects of this new Paradise Papers leak remain to be seen, but it has already put increased scrutiny on high-profile figures including U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and Queen Elizabeth II.

How Did This Happen?

A German newspaper called Süddeutsche Zeitung first obtained the leaked documents from an unnamed source, and then shared them with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists when it became clear there was too much information for one organization to handle.

The ICIJ partnered with 96 media organizations across the world, including major outlets like the New York Times and the BBC, to give access to the leaked files for reporting purposes. HuffPost does not have access to the leaked documents, and cannot independently verify the information gleaned from the files.

What’s In The Leak?

The full extent of information contained in the leaked files is still unknown, but already a number of outlets have published articles based on the documents. 

So far, one of the most notable findings for U.S. politics is a report that President Donald Trump’s Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross shares business interests with Russian President Vladimir Putin’s son-in-law. Ross previously failed to disclose the connection during his confirmation hearing earlier this year, according to NBC News.

A business associate of top White House adviser Jared Kushner is also named in the files, The Guardian reports. The documents show that two Kremlin-linked financial institutions invested significant funds into Twitter and Facebook, using companies controlled by Kushner associate Yuri Milner as a go-between to invest the money.   

Another revelation is that Queen Elizabeth II has around $13 million of her private funds invested in offshore holdings, according to the BBC. As with many aspects of offshore finance where loopholes in tax law are utilized, it appears there is nothing illegal about the Queen’s actions.

But the Paradise Papers’ records of offshore holdings do highlight the elaborate ways that the wealthy and powerful can utilize tax havens for their own benefit, and the convoluted framework of institutions and firms that are in place to aid them.

The Paradise Papers also include figures such as U2 lead singer Bono, Madonna and a top fundraiser for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who are all involved in the use of offshore holdings and questionable foreign companies.
