The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences announced that it is suing Distinctive Assets, the company distributing a luxury gift bag to Oscar nominees, which this year includes an all-expenses paid trip to Israel sponsored by the Israeli government.

Palestinians had denounced the inclusion of the trip to Israel as a “cynical and desperate” attempt by the Israeli government to fight its increasing international isolation through bribes to celebrities instead of addressing its human rights abuses against them.

Responding to this latest development Omar Barghouti from the Palestinian BDS National Committee (BNC), the broadest Palestinian coalition that leads the global BDS movement, said:

“By distancing itself from the company marketing Israel’s propaganda trip to Oscar nominees, the Academy is taking a step in the right direction. The so-called ‘Oscars swag bag’ has fallen into further disrepute with its association with the Israeli regime of occupation, settler-colonialism and apartheid.  The Academy needs to do much more, clearly, to address the serious charges of bias and racism raised by the #OscarsSoWhite campaign as well as Palestinian human rights campaigners, among many others.  Campaigners will continue to urge nominees to act with conscience and reject Israel’s latest propaganda attempt to whitewash its war crimes and other egregious violations of human rights. Any artist with a conscience would have similarly declined a free trip paid for by the apartheid regime in South Africa in the 1980s.”

A petition has been launched calling on nominees not to take the free trip to Israel, echoing demands by the Palestinian arts community. The Palestinian Performing Arts Network denounced the hypocrisy by saying Israel deliberately attacks Palestinian art and cultural production.

Oscar nominees Mark Rylance and Asif Kapadia have already promised not to visit Israel professionally as long as the human rights violations persist. Five-time Oscar nominee Mike Leigh, Director Ken Loach and musician Brian Eno have publicly denounced the Israeli government’s propaganda initiative.

Gates Foundation Gives Tulane U Millions to Curb African Population*

Gates Foundation Gives Tulane U Millions to Curb African Population*

Tulane University a U.S. bio-lab was at the centre of the Ebola virus experimentation last year… all in the name of African natural resources. Some people have no shame over what they will do for money… to exterminate a people so they can make more money

Two wealthy foundations known for pushing population control have handed more than seven million dollars to a U.S. university to advance programs limiting population growth and “excessive childbearing” in a poor African country.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the David and Lucile Packard Foundation have given Tulane University’s School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine a $7.2-million grant “to help curb population growth and excessive childbearing,” in the words of a NOLA.com report, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

“At some point women and men opt to have fewer children in hopes of giving their children a better life,” said Jane T. Bertrand, Tulane professor and principal investigator of the new grant, in a February 16 statement from the university, which touts “the benefits of smaller families.”

The press release went on to say, “Tulane’s work in the DRC aims to increase access and reduce barriers to contraceptive use to encourage this process.”

The grant is for “family planning research and programming,” according to the statement, and will build upon previous Tulane grants from the two foundations. Its premise is that population growth is a problem in the African nation.

The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation is a major advocate of contraception and abortion access, with a focus on developing nations, spending multi-millions, in one instance alone pledging to ramp up its spending on abortifacient birth control in third-world countries by $120 million over the next three years when a “family planning” initiative fell short of expectations.

The David and Lucile Packard Foundation heavily promotes population control and abortion, having donated millions of dollars to NARAL Pro-Choice America and millions to Planned Parenthood and supported the National Abortion Fund, which subsidizes abortion for low-income women.

Tulane’s press release on the grant from the two foundations states:

“The DRC has the third-largest population in Sub-Saharan Africa with 77 million people. Women on average give birth to more than six children in their lifetime and cultural norms support large families. Yet in developing countries worldwide, birth rates have dramatically decreased as women and men have realized the benefits of smaller families. Family planning reduces maternal mortality, decelerates rapid population growth and alleviates the hardship of excessive childbearing.
Also:

The new three-year grant will fund the expansion of Tulane’s community-based contraceptive distribution program throughout the capital city Kinshasa and the neighboring province of Kongo Central. In addition to adults, the program will serve adolescents and young people, a numerically large population with tremendous needs. The new funding will also support research to test innovative strategies, such as a pilot introduction of a new contraceptive device Implanon NXT for distribution by medical and nursing students at the community level. Additionally, the program will seek to improve the quality of services, both in health facilities and at the community level.”

LifeSiteNews inquired with the Tulane contact for the grant announcement, referencing the NOLA.com report, and requested the particulars leading to the conclusion that childbirth is a problem in the DRC and how the concept of excessive childbirth is defined, as well as any criteria for how, outside simple population statistics, the DRC was designated as the object of efforts to decelerate rapid population growth.

LifeSiteNews also inquired into specifies of how the program endeavors to serve adolescents and young people, including the specific age ranges of youth, whether they are given contraceptives, and the extent of parental involvement.

In response, Tulane provided a link to the same press release upon which the LifeSite inquiry questions were based, saying it may help clarify some of the questions.

“It was picked up by a local newspaper and inaccurately reported,” Carolyn Scofield, media and communications specialist for Tulane University’s public relations, told LifeSiteNews.

“A little more background information for you, Tulane works in collaboration with the Ministry of Health in the DRC, ensuring that its activities are consistent with local interests.”

LifeSiteNews inquired again whether the press release was the university’s complete statement on the matter, also asking for explanation of what had been inaccurately reported by the local newspaper.

“Yes, the press release is our complete statement on the grant,” Tulane responded.

Mustering the Emotional and Spiritual Maturity to Face the Satanic Cult*

Mustering the Emotional and Spiritual Maturity to Face the Satanic Cult*

By Makia Freeman

If we want to heal the world, humanity has to muster the courage & spiritual maturity to confront the Satanic cult and get the Satanists out of power.

Spiritual maturity is what is needed most right now by humanity en masse to deal with the predicament we are in. We are in the midst of an unspeakable and horrific evil, but rather than evil, I suggest we use the term unconsciousness (as Eckhart Tolle author of Power of Now advises). We have allowed deeply unconscious individuals and groups to infiltrate and seize the power centers of our societies. The “monolithic and ruthless conspiracy” that JFK referred to is, in fact, a Satanic cult that rules through black magic. Many whistleblowers have affirmed this such as the most recent one from Australia, Fiona Barrett. This international Satanic cult is composed of some of the most famous and respected people in the world. It is the dark heart of the New World Order. There is only one way out of this for mankind: to muster up the courage, in terms of both emotional maturity and spiritual maturity, to face this Satanic cult head on, expose its crimes and get these Satanists out of power, so they can no longer continue their lying, thieving, raping and killing ways.

Emotional Maturity

We have to develop emotional maturity to overcome our reflexive reaction to indulge in denial.

The first step to healing this is reaching a critical mass of awakened people who are willing to face the uncomfortable truth and do something about it. Humanity still labors under a spell of collective amnesia, denial and cognitive dissonance. The majority of people still vote for crooked politicians, but they know in their hearts nothing will change; or they look for Government to solve the problems, when they know in their hearts that it is Government that creates the problems. As truth activist James Corbett has said, people suffer under a societal Stockholm Syndrome, where we have been bewitched by our captors and developed an affinity for those who deceive, rob and betray us. People defend those who enslave them. As Morpheus told Neo in The Matrix:

“The Matrix is a system, Neo. That system is our enemy. But when you’re inside, you look around. What do you see? Business men, teachers, lawyers, carpenters. The very minds of the people we are trying to save. But until we do, these people are still a part of that system, and that makes them our enemy. You have to understand, most of these people are not ready to be unplugged. And many of them are so inert, so hopelessly dependent on the system that they will fight to protect it.”

One important aspect of helping people wake up from the system is to help them reach emotional maturity. By this I mean a sense that you can handle difficult issues or challenges in life, whatever they may be, without crumbling, shutting down or flying off the handle. Humanity needs more emotional maturity, not less, which is why the push for the absurdity known as political correctness is such a joke. It’s encouraging people to become emotional crybabies who can’t handle being called names. If people are going to get their knickers in a knot over a word or phrase, how on Earth are they going to have the intestinal fortitude to confront mass murderers and psychopaths who in some cases would rather kill than be exposed?

Playing Shoot the Messenger

Many people’s consciousness level is still stuck at playing “shoot the messenger”. Time to grow up.

One clear and obvious manifestation of people’s collective denial is the “shoot the messenger” phenomenon. This way, they can avoid doing the hard, inner, emotional, integrative work necessary to overcome their psychological cognitive dissonance, and instead take the easy route by blaming those bringing the truth, poking holes in their information or finding some other way to continue their denial. This needs to change – and fast – if we want to confront the Satanic cult. As Geoff Byrd from Radio Mysterium says in Atmos-Fear:

“We must stop acting like herd animals … on social media, peer pressure and psychological gas lighting techniques are used to shame truthseekers into silence. The self-policing on Facebook make me nauseous, like crabs in a bucket …”

People need to stop backing away from information, finding a way to forget about it, deny it, rationalize it or make it go away. It’s not going away. In fact, more and more information is coming to light, as victims go public, whistleblowers step forth, people turn to the alternative media for news and information becomes more rapidly exchanged. Denial is no longer an option. In this day and age, ignorance is a choice. As horrible as the truth is of the Satanic cult and the New World Order, the only way to heal it is by acknowledging its reality and integrating that knowledge within. A problem can only be fixed once you firstly accept it is a problem.

Spiritual Maturity

2_wolves_shadow_side

We have to develop our spiritual maturity to be able to handle the depths of Satanic unconsciousness – without losing ourselves in the process of exposing

It can be difficult to integrate the truth without spiritual maturity. If you don’t have a spiritual practice, deep faith, a connection to “God” or your Higher Self, or some other kind of way to anchor your consciousness, it is all too easy for the horror of the information to blow you away. Without the spiritual maturity, you are likely to get caught up in anger, frenzy, stress and hate – and go into “fighting” mode. This is a form of unconsciousness where you actually become the very thing you are opposing. Just as many great past figures have said, you can’t fight for peace. You can only be peaceful.

We need to walk the tightrope with precise balance. We need to use enough energy as passion and determination to expose the truth and set things right. If we overdo it, our energy may well turn into over-anger and hate (one path to unconsciousness). If we under-do it, as we are mostly doing now, we will remain in denial as passive and acquiescence slaves who allow evil to rise in their midst (another path to unconsciousness). It’s our choice. What’s it going to be – consciousness or unconsciousness?

Conclusion: We’re More Powerful – We Just Need to Remember It

It is clear that the Satanic cult, no matter how powerful they think of themselves as, are no match for a fully awakened humanity. They are parasites that feed off the unconscious state of the collective. Energetically, it’s a co-dependent relationship; if you change or remove one aspect of the equation, the other cannot exist in the same way.

So what can you do? EVERYTHING! Working on one’s shadow, sharing the truth, integrating the information, and developing emotional and spiritual maturity are key. LOVE – center yourself in your heart which is your place of power. I will again quote from Geoff Byrd who sums it up beautifully:

“It’s not just the Illuminati, or the Shadow Government, or the evil banksters doing this; it’s the silence and quiet acquiescence of the people who are allowing this to happen. No resistance; if you don’t resist, they will persist. The power vacuum was created by us. It is our own inability to face our own personal demons and heal our psychological trauma that allows this to happen.

We perpetuate this external reality. TURN AND FACE IT; not just for you, but for us too. So we must do the individual, introspective shadow work to improve the collective … our own individual healing will affect the morphic field and create anchor frequencies in the collective consciousness. So our own individual healing is a nexus point. The courage of the individual is paramount to the psychological health of the whole.”

There you have it. We have our mission. Let’s go forth and heal ourselves, and in doing so heal the world, and rid ourselves the NWO Satanic cult for good.

Reliving the Collapse of the Roman Empire*

Reliving the Collapse of the Roman Empire*

At its peak, the Roman Empire held up to 130 million people over a span of 1.5 million square miles.

Rome had conquered much of the known world. The Empire built 50,000 miles of roads, as well as many aqueducts, amphitheatres, and other works that are still in use today.

Our alphabet, calendar, languages, literature, and architecture borrow much from the Romans. Even concepts of Roman justice still stand tall, such as being “innocent until proven guilty”.

So, as Visual Capitalist’s Jeff Desjardins’ asks, how could such a powerful empire collapse?

The Roman Economy

Trade was vital to Rome. It was trade that allowed a wide variety of goods to be imported into its borders: beef, grains, glassware, iron, lead, leather, marble, olive oil, perfumes, purple dye, silk, silver, spices, timber, tin and wine.

Trade generated vast wealth for the citizens of Rome. However, the city of Rome itself had only 1 million people, and costs kept rising as the empire became larger.

Administrative, logistical, and military costs kept adding up, and the Empire found creative new ways to pay for things.

Along with other factors, this led to hyperinflation, a fractured economy, localization of trade, heavy taxes, and a financial crisis that crippled Rome.

Roman Debasement

The major silver coin used during the first 220 years of the empire was the denarius.

This coin, between the size of a modern nickel and dime, was worth approximately a day’s wages for a skilled laborer or craftsman. During the first days of the Empire, these coins were of high purity, holding about 4.5 grams of pure silver.

However, with a finite supply of silver and gold entering the empire, Roman spending was limited by the amount of denarii that could be minted.

This made financing the pet-projects of emperors challenging. How was the newest war, thermae, palace, or circus to be paid for?

Roman officials found a way to work around this. By decreasing the purity of their coinage, they were able to make more “silver” coins with the same face value. With more coins in circulation, the government could spend more. And so, the content of silver dropped over the years.

By the time of Marcus Aurelius, the denarius was only about 75% silver. Caracalla tried a different method of debasement. He introduced the “double denarius”, which was worth 2x the denarius in face value. However, it had only the weight of 1.5 denarii. By the time of Gallienus, the coins had barely 5% silver. Each coin was a bronze core with a thin coating of silver. The shine quickly wore off to reveal the poor quality underneath.

The Consequences

The real effects of debasement took time to materialize.

Adding more coins of poorer quality into circulation did not help increase prosperity – it just transferred wealth away from the people, and it meant that more coins were needed to pay for goods and services.

At times, there was runaway inflation in the empire. For example, soldiers demanded far higher wages as the quality of coins diminished.

“Nobody should have any money but I, so that I may bestow it upon the soldiers.” – Caracalla, who raised soldiers pay by 50% near 210 AD.

By 265 AD, when there was only 0.5% silver left in a denarius, prices skyrocketed 1,000% across the Roman Empire.
Only barbarian mercenaries were to be paid in gold.

The Effects

With soaring logistical and admin costs and no precious metals left to plunder from enemies, the Romans levied more and more taxes against the people to sustain the Empire.

Hyperinflation, soaring taxes, and worthless money created a trifecta that dissolved much of Rome’s trade. The economy was paralyzed.

By the end of the 3rd century, any trade that was left was mostly local, using inefficient barter methods instead of any meaningful medium of exchange.

The Collapse

During the crisis of the 3rd century (235-284 A.D), there may have been more than 50 emperors. Most of these were murdered, assassinated, or killed in battle.

The empire was in a free-for-all, and it split into three separate states.

Constant civil wars meant the Empire’s borders were vulnerable. Trade networks were disintegrated and such activities became too dangerous.

Barbarian invasions came in from every direction. Plague was rampant.

And so the Western Roman Empire would cease to exist by 476 A.D.
