A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Moon

Originally posted on Our New World:

This is an excellent 2001 documentary about the moon landing of July 20th, 1969 that has finally made it to YouTube. Enjoy! -LW

Award winning filmmaker Bart Sibrel presents his highly acclaimed (and much hated) controversial documentary showcasing newly discovered behind-the-scenes out-takes from the first mission to the moon, proving that the crew never left earth orbit.

Never before in all of recorded aviation has a flying machine worked on its first attempt, much less the most complicated one ever imagined, landing on another heavenly body on its maiden voyage, and returning roundtrip with a crew that lived to tell, all with 1960’s technology. (More computing power is found today in a $10 watch.)

According to William Kaysing, a NASA contractor for Apollo, a classified interdepartmental memo rated the odds of a successful and survivable manned lunar landing on its first attempt at one in ten thousand. That is why…

Vaccine Pandemic Targets the Innocent

Vaccine Pandemic Targets the Innocent

December 16, 2014

Ken Anton argues that vaccines are administered for profit  regardless of the harm they do.


See a mother’s testimony below in First Comment:

by Ken Anton
(henrymakow.com)

During the last 30 years, the number of vaccines given to babies has quadrupled to over 40, and rising to over 70 by school age. This rise is coincident with a dramatic increase in the number of Autism Spectrum Disorders. Shockingly, it isn’t an increase in epidemic diseases causing this disaster but an increase in vaccinations, in effect – a pandemic of vaccines.

Vaccines were first developed to prevent epidemics like smallpox. The basic theory was to inject a small sample of an attenuated virus into the body to stimulate antibodies in an attempt to jumpstart an immune response. However, it has often been found that injection of live viruses, even attenuated ones can cause the disease the vaccine was intended to prevent (as admitted by Dr Jonas Salk with the polio vaccine). After years of mandating the cowpox vaccine in England and Japan, the death rates skyrocketed and the vaccines were eventually stopped.

In 1976, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) sponsored a national vaccination campaign for the previously unheard of Swine Flu; in fact, there had not been a single case in the country except amongst pigs. Some months after President Ford endorsed the campaign on CBS TV, thousands started feeling the toxic effects of the vaccine and claims of paralysis resulted in lawsuits and damages against the drug companies totaling $1.3 billion.

An even greater tragedy was the inadvertent inclusion of the SV40 cancer virus in the polio vaccines given to over 90 million Americans in the 1950’s and ’60’s. Even after the virus was discovered, the government kept it secret and the national vaccination campaign continued its course. Over recent decades, tumors bearing the SV40 signature have been discovered in the lungs, brains and lymph systems of thousands of cancer patients.

The US healthcare industry is run by a Medical Cartel encompassing Federal regulators (such as the FDA, NIH, CDC) and giant Pharmaceutical companies posting sales in excess of half a trillion dollars. Vaccines comprise a major portion of this cash flow. Both vaccines and cancer are vital to profitability regardless of how many people are actually cured or immunized.

IMMUNE SYSTEM WEAKENED

Vaccines tend to weaken the immune system while trying to bypass its normal defenses.

Combo vaccines like the MMR and DTP place an even heavier burden on the baby’s nascent immune system and can affect brain development. Booster shots are required since immunity is limited to a few years, thus multiplying the total number of vaccines.

As proven by the previous generation, the actual childhood diseases of measles, mumps, chicken pox, pertussis and the flu were seldom threatening and usually provided lifetime immunity
Vaccine adjuvants, preservatives and embedded micro-organisms can be extremely toxic, especially affecting brain development

AUTISM

The only logical reason for the rise in Autism and associated neurological disorders during the last 30 years is the shocking increase in vaccinations, most of which are unnecessary. (For scientific research on this, see Dr Russell Blaylock’s video and other resources at http://www.cancervortex.com/vaccinedangers1.htm ).

Given that the current rate of about 1 in 150 children is on the increase, parents must educate themselves and put a stop to this horrific tragedy.

Starting with the flu shot given to pregnant mothers, then an Hepatitis B vaccine given to the newborn baby and followed by a cluster of around 40 vaccinations up to the age of 24 months, the current immunization procedure creates an overload on the baby’s underdeveloped brain. Symptoms of impaired brain development may appear at any time, even years later.

DOCTORS PART OF MEDICAL CARTEL

Realize that doctors may seem to have good intentions but they are still part of the Medical Cartel which prioritizes profit over health. They are bound to follow the strict protocols and agenda of the Cartel or they could lose their medical license. Be skeptical, do your own research and be prepared to make your own health decisions.

The cozy relationship between the Food and Drug Administration (the primary government regulator), the Centers for Disease Control (mainvaccine promoter) and Big Pharma is well known, as is the revolving door between the industry and the top ranks of the regulators.

Billions are spent lobbying and much of that targets Congress every year. As proof, look at the 1986 bill preventing anyone from suing the vaccine manufacturers. Instead, a Vaccine Court under HHS Department auspices was set up to authorize any compensation should they determine it is due.

Advisory:
Some vaccines may be necessary in emergency situations such as to prevent anaphylactic shock, DVT and other types of blood clots, poisonous snake bites, rabid dog bites, insulin for diabetes etc. Without doubt, some vaccines have been proven to save lives in life-threatening situations. But it is the overuse of non-emergency vaccinations especially for babies with an undeveloped immune system that demands close scrutiny and the consent of informed parents.

A MOTHER’S TESTIMONY -FIRST COMMENT FROM DIANE:

Last October my beautiful then five year old son had a flu vaccine. Even thought my gut pulled at me when the doctor said he needed it, I went ahead with it.

Shortly after the vaccine he went into seizures. They lasted for an entire day. Even in the ICU at a leading children’s hospital, they could not get them to stop. Over the last year, my entire life has been set around his recovery–he had some neurological impairments–it seems he is for the most part back to normal, but has developed a chronic skin condition and has a shorter attention span.

The doctors have treated me so badly–they said he had an allergic reaction and that reporting it to the CDC on their end is too much paperwork.

Now looking back at my medical records, I realized that I delivered him six weeks early, just a week after getting a flu shot, so there is something there.  Also, I wonder if my other kids’ chronic conditions (two have asthma), are a result of vaccines.

I have always felt in my heart, vaccines were not good, and I am a health care worker. In our nurses union at work, almost half of nurses claim a religious exemption, but now they are not allowing that.

We need to talk about Sandy Hook: Powerful New Collaborative Video Dismantles The Greatest State Sponsored Hoax in American History

The degree and extent of criminality surrounding the Sandy Hook deception is mind boggling. When you consider the complicity of the governor, state police, the medical examiner, state attorney general, Newtown officials, its police and fire department, emergency personnel, school officials, crisis actors, make believe parents of make believe children victims, fabricated teachers, school principal, & school nurse, CNN liars, etc., you have to wonder if there’s an honest soul left standing in the Banana Republic of Connecticut. Will these well paid criminals ever be brought to justice?

Currency war? I don’t think the USA has thought this through properly

Who Will Be Tomorrow’s Superpower? The Geo-political Map Is Set To Change. Is The World Ready?

by Charles Hugh Smith

There’s a popular geopolitical parlor game called Who will be the next superpower?

While the game excels at triggering a mind-fogging tsunami of nationalistic emotions, it doesn’t shed much light on the really consequential question: What is power?

These are important questions to ponder as, around the world, unsustainable policies from the 20th century are beginning to fail in earnest. What will the future geopolitical landscape look like in their aftermath?

What Is Power?

In geopolitics, the conventional view is that Power is the capacity to coerce others to serve your interests at the detriment of their own.

This is a scale-invariant definition, meaning that it applies equally to the school bully, the drug lord, the dictator, or the Emperor. Each has the power to coerce others to do things that are counter to their own interests to serve the interests of the powerful.

While there is certainly truth in this definition, at the geopolitical scale it leaves much to be desired. General and Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte was well-positioned to understand the limits of coercive power, limits which he described in this truculent phrase: “Do you know what amazes me more than anything else? The impotence of force to organize anything.”

The greater power than coercion, it turns out, is the power to align others’ interests with one’s own, so they willingly submit to your authority as a means of furthering their own interests. To do this effectively and sustainably, power must organize the transnational flow of capital and labor in ways that offer benefits to all participants.

The great superpower of the ancient world, the Roman Empire, showcased this form of inclusive organizational power: though the Legions were available to suppress outright rebellions, Rome’s long Golden Era was characterized not by perpetual wars of rebellion but by widespread peace and prosperity for even the far-flung members of the Empire.

This is not to gloss over the institutional slavery and oppression that enforced the Ancient Rome’s grip, but the point is that free participants accepted the dominance of Rome because it protected their opportunities to better themselves in relative safety, providing they did not undermine the Empire’s interests.

Even so-called Barbarians benefited from trade with Rome. Many tribes intermarried with peoples under Rome’s sway, and by the end of the Empire, the line between Barbarian and those living under Roman rules blurred.

Even as political and military control eroded and was lost, the organizational system created by Rome’s power—of roadways, waterworks, money, trade and commerce—continued to hold former dominions together. It was only when that complex system fell to pieces (for many reasons, a good deal of them resource-related) that the Empire expired.

There is a third form of power that is often overlooked, perhaps because it’s so obvious in functioning systems we don’t even notice it: the power to solve problems. The power to solve problems with the resources at hand is perhaps the greatest power, far greater than coercive power and ultimately more powerful than organizational power, which erodes if power cannot solve problems with the available resources.

How does power solve problems?  Though the answer is complex, we can discern a few generalities:

  1. Power must accumulate capital and invest it productively
  2. Power must invest the capital where it has long-term leverage (i.e. in systems that conserve resources, labor and capital over the lifespan of the system)
  3. Power must enable the free flow of intellectual capital/knowledge and encourage experimentation as a means of solving new or emerging problems

The ancient world empires tended to accumulate capital in two ways: by taxing their own citizens, and by conquering the wealth of other regimes. Modern-day great powers tend to accumulate capital by taxing their own citizens and fashioning economic arrangements for profitable commerce and credit that attract capital, talent and profits that can be taxed.

In other words: power solves problems by attracting capital and talent, and then enabling their productive use in a system that is effectively organized to solve problems.

Capital and talent are two forms of wealth that don’t respond well to coercion. Capital and talent both flee dictatorial control; and in today’s world, both are increasingly mobile. So the source of modern power’s wealth is not coercion so much as being more attractive to those with capital and talent than the alternatives.

This has two facets:

  • enabling people to serve their own interests within the dominant power structure, and
  • maintaining an inclusive system that is organized to optimize solutions

If the system is too chaotic or rapacious to enable solutions to be implemented, capital and talent are both fruitlessly squandered.

If capital must be spent suppressing rebellion, there is less available for productive investments.  The empire soon collapses under its own inefficiency. This is why empires based on coercion burn out quickly. And why empires without inclusive, well-organized systems also fail.

The Roman Example

The Roman Empire offers some useful examples of problem-solving via productive investment. Rome’s expansion of durable roadways and fresh water supplies were critical to the growth of trade and the expansion of healthy urban centers that fostered innovation, the sharing of knowledge, and the accumulation of capital.

Rome’s suppression of piracy enabled the free flow of grain from North Africa to Europe, and the extension of trade routes to faraway Britain.

Technologies such as engineered concrete aqueducts and metalworking spread throughout the Empire due to the sharing of technologies and expertise.

Roman coinage enabled low-risk commerce all throughout its boundaries.

While the occasional drama of slave revolts and rebellions against Imperial might are the natural subjects of movie dramas, the day-to-day reality was spectacularly mundane: without the advantages of fossil fuels, Rome managed to extend relative peace and prosperity over much of the human world.

The same can be said of the Tang Empire in China: providing additional validation that security, commerce, a unified money system and widespread prosperity go hand in hand.

What System Is Best Able to Solve Problems?

Virtually every nation and trading bloc faces the same set of entrenched problems: demographics, debt, energy and currency.  The problems created by aging populations afflict the entire developed world, and fast-growing developing nations face the opposite problem: not enough work for their burgeoning cohort of youth.

Debt has long been the solution to all problems: just borrow more money (or borrow it into existence) and throw it at the problem of the day. But since debt accumulates interest, and interest siphons off productive capital, this “solution” has run into rapidly diminishing returns.

The foundation of the modern global economy is abundant, cheap energy. And the traditional source of that abundant cheap energy—fossil fuels—is no longer cheap (despite the recent drop in price, the production cost for oil remains near all-time highs), or it comes with real-world limits on its expansion.  Declining supply and rising costs crimp growth of consumption and the expansion of capital, the twin foundations of the status quo arrangement.

Currency—paper money—is the financial basis of that arrangement.  The ease and appeal of printing money (or credit) becomes increasingly compelling as diminishing returns set in, but the rampant expansion of money and credit undermine the system just as fatally as the decline in cheap, abundant fuels.

The temptation is to create money out of thin air to solve the other problems: just create money (or borrow it into existence) to pay for old-age social security, youth unemployment, higher energy costs, and every other problem facing the status quo.

But this “solution” generates its own problem.  Even more damaging, issuing money and credit doesn’t actually solve any of the other structural problems; it simply papers them over, allowing them to fester behind the façade of freshly printed money and debt.

Power and Superpower

We can now formulate a preliminary answer to the parlor game question Who will be the next superpower?

Any nation or trading bloc that sustainably solves its pressing structural problems will qualify as a Great Power, simply by avoiding the consequences of not solving these problems, i.e. collapse. Muddling through is not a sustainable solution.

There is no law or rule that mandates the existence of superpowers.  The world can go on quite well without a dominant global power.  That said, what qualifies a nation or trading bloc to be labeled a superpower?

Within the context outlined above, the answer is: the solutions organized by the superpower become the dominant global system because they are far more effective, efficient, resilient, flexible and sustainable than the solutions organized by other nations and trading blocs.

In Part 2: Who Will Dominate This Century?, we look at the key requirements for sustainable power in this new century and which countries are best-positioned to exert their influence going forward.

That long-standing geopolitical relationships are changing is a given at this point. The question is: is the world ready for what’s coming next?

The rhetoric of Christian Zionists consistently places loyalty to the modern state of Israel above the example and teachings of the Jesus born in Bethlehem whose birth Christmas celebrates. It’s time to stop calling such groups Christian Zionists and instead use the term Zionist Christians, to more accurately reflect their priorities.
