There’s a sort of serenity that one feels when wandering or hiking through a natural setting. When I was younger it seems like I was able to maintain or retain or conjure that feeling even after leaving the natural setting. At least for a time. As I get older it often seems more difficult to conjure that feeling by purely power of will. I think I need to compel myself to spend more of that time needed to take nature hikes, as our seemingly declining world requires ever more internalized serenity to endure. Of course, maybe it’s just me.

Slippery Slope


Here is one of those headlines that invariably catches my interest. I seem to be alone among my circle of peers in that regard though. But that isn’t a surprise either, as I typically stand alone on most things. I just see things differently I guess.

Regarding the essence of this article, I deplore counterfeiting and slavery (and/or involuntary servitude) though I know most don’t see it that way. Most folks I know think counterfeiting isn’t counterfeiting or isn’t a bad thing when done by the government. I guess the same goes for slavery. I suppose I have a harder time than most making the necessary mental contortions to see those unethical and criminal acts differently based on who carries them out.

In the end, it may not matter, since the outcomes are the same.

Happy National Drink a Beer Day!!! – Beers that you should STOP drinking Immediately!!!


Good information here. Of course, I would also recommend that beer lovers brew their own homebrew also and then be more conscientious about ingredients.

Originally posted on Be Like Water:


Here’s some harmful ingredients that are commonly found in beer:

  • GMO Corn Syrup
  • GMO Corn
  • High Fructose Corn Syrup
  • Fish Bladder
  • Propylene Glycol
  • Monosodium Glutamate (MSG)
  • Natural Flavors
  • GMO Sugars
  • Caramel Coloring
  • Insect-Based Dyes
  • Carrageenan
  • BPA
  • & lots more!

Here are the 8 beers that are commonly found in bars in United States that you should stop drinking immediately.

1. Newcastle Brown Ale


The Newcastle beer has been found to contain caramel coloring. Class 3 and 4 caramel coloring is made from ammonia, which is classified as a carcinogen. “The one and only” beer with cancer causing qualities.

2. Budweiser


One of the most popular beers, or most advertised is Budweiser. Budweiser contains genetically modified (GMO) corn. In 2007, Greenpeace discovered experimental GMO rice in Anheuser-Busch (Budweiser) beer.

3. Corona Extra


I used to love Corona’s commercials. They were so peaceful and relaxing. That is until I found out that the beer contains GMO…

Civil Society or Secret Society

Now and again it isn’t unusual for me to ruminate a bit over the nature of secret societies, particularly as understood among much of the populace of America. It is a testament to the effectiveness of the obedience training and brainwashing in Fedgovcorp school compounds across the nation. I have on more than one occasion been given snarky looks or comments for suggesting that some Fedgovcorp story may not be all that it appears. It wasn’t always a shocking or unbelievable thing that secret societies existed and intended harm upon the rest of humanity. There still exists today in New York, a memorial built to remember a victim of a secret society who was murdered for revealing the workings of one such group.

“Sacred to the memory of Wm. Morgan, a native of Virginia, a Capt. in the War of 1812, a respectable citizen of Batavia, and a martyr to the freedom of writing, printing and speaking the truth. He was abducted from near this spot in the year 1826, by Freemasons and murdered for revealing the secrets of their order. The court records of Genesee County, and the files of the Batavia Advocate, kept in the Recorders office contain the history of the events that caused the erection of this monument.”
– Inscription on statue base commissioned and erected in memoriam to Morgan in the Batavia Cemetery.
(<- warning: wikipedia link)

This phenomenon most starkly surfaces when those who, repeating their Fedgovcorp training that ‘conspiracies do not exist’ then go on to parrot Fedgovcorp-approved conspiracies, such as the 19 sand people from the Tatooine desert executing a perfectly planned operation of hijacking multiple airplanes and crashing them into buildings which subsequently collapsed, including Building 7 which was never even hit by a plane, and to hit the Pentagon and Shanksville in such as way as to leave no airline debris at all. As the Fedgovcorp liar at the time, Condi Rice, said, they have evidence that (ex-CIA asset) Osama binLaden did it and they would reveal that evidence in due time. I doubt anyone is still holding their breath 13 years later.

Of course, the JFK conspiracy should hardly even be one. It is amazing that it continues to elude many even today. If the Fedgovcorp conspiracy theory, that Oswald murdered the president alone from the book depository were true, then the Zapruder film would show the last shot on Kennedy sending his body forward and spilling his brains into the back of the driver’s seat. Of course, that isn’t what the Zapruder film shows, because the Fedgovcorp conspiracy theory is itself a conspiracy. Kennedy’s head rocks back because the final shot comes from the grassy knoll where other members of an actual conspiracy made the final shot from. The question should then become, why does the government continue to cover up the assassination after so many years? The obvious answer is: because the killers still possess the throne.

In any rational mind, everything that Fedgovcorp does after that should then be suspect. As the wise George Carlin said, “I don’t trust anything the government tells me. Ever! Nothing!”

“The bold effort the present bank has made to control the government, the distress it had wantonly produced…are but premonitions of the fate that awaits the American people should they be deluded into a perpetuation of this institution or the establishment of another like it.”
President Andrew Jackson, warning the American people after he abolished the privately controlled central bank, the 2nd Bank of the United States.

And once one understands that all US Presidents who have been murdered all had designs on restoring sound (non-counterfeit) money – that is, money not controlled by the central banks, then it becomes easy to see that there are not lone, crazy assassins prowling about, but concerted efforts by specific organizations – generationally controlled by the same families with the same ongoing interests, in setting themselves up as Pharaohs or kings or some megalomaniac crap like that – to lord over the rest of us slaves until, well, they destroy the world, or the world comes to an end due to their megalomaniac stupidity.

Here are a couple of websites with many links and information about the murders of past presidents by said banksters:

“The very word ‘secrecy’ is repugnant in a free and open society; and we are as a people inherently and historically opposed to secret societies, to secret oaths and secret proceedings. We decided long ago that the dangers of excessive and unwarranted concealment of pertinent facts far outweighed the dangers which are cited to justify it. Even today, there is little value in opposing the threat of a closed society by imitating its arbitrary restrictions. Even today, there is little value in insuring the survival of our nation if our traditions do not survive with it. And there is very grave danger that an announced need for increased security will be seized upon those anxious to expand its meaning to the very limits of official censorship and concealment. That I do not intend to permit to the extent that it is in my control. And no official of my Administration, whether his rank is high or low, civilian or military, should interpret my words here tonight as an excuse to censor the news, to stifle dissent, to cover up our mistakes or to withhold from the press and the public the facts they deserve to know.
For we are opposed around the world by a monolithic and ruthless conspiracy that relies on covert means for expanding its sphere of influence–on infiltration instead of invasion, on subversion instead of elections, on intimidation instead of free choice, on guerrillas by night instead of armies by day. It is a system which has conscripted vast human and material resources into the building of a tightly knit, highly efficient machine that combines military, diplomatic, intelligence, economic, scientific and political operations.
Its preparations are concealed, not published. Its mistakes are buried not headlined. Its dissenters are silenced, not praised. No expenditure is questioned, no rumor is printed, no secret is revealed.”
– President John F. Kennedy, 1961

I don’t really have much else to say on the topic right now. Here are some other interesting tidbits, however, dealing with oil and the strange deaths of people who invented things like a carburetor that could make a car get 50 mpg (miles per gallon) back in the 1950s. I’m sure there are no conspiracies involved because there is no such thing as conspiracies – except when Fedgovcorp says so.

Monsanto’s ‘Zombie Wheat’ Falling Apart: American Farmers ‘Stand Their Ground’.


Monsanto is a sterling example of American fascism in action. Don’t be surprised if Govcorp’s Blackwater/X/ISIS gestapo goons murder some farmers and force Monsanto’s Cancer Wheat onto the market in the end. It is what fascists do.

Originally posted on Political Vel Craft:

Farmers Stand Their Ground

(NaturalNews) Monsanto’s business model is falling apart right in front of their own face, because the biotech firm blatantly disrespects the property rights of farmers, contaminating their fields with unauthorized genetically modified seeds.

These unapproved GMO seeds inevitably cross-contaminate farmers’ fields, effectively destroying their yields. That’s exactly what happened in Oregon last year when some unauthorized “zombie wheat” from the Monsanto Company went from the lab and intermixed with a farmer’s natural wheat.

The debacle disrupted wheat exports as Japan and South Korea blocked shipments. A contingency of farmers have joined forces and sued Monsanto.
