Venezuela Maintains High Human Development Despite U.S. Engineered Economic Crisis*

Venezuela Maintains High Human Development Despite U.S. Engineered Economic Crisis*

Despite the ongoing economic crisis, Venezuela maintained a higher human development ranking than Brazil, Peru, and Colombia.

In spite of an ongoing economic crisis — created by a slump in global oil prices — Venezuela has maintained a high level of human development, according to the U.N., better even than many of its regional neighbours.

The U.N. Development Program released its 2016 Human Development report this week, ranking Venezuela 71st out of the 188 countries examined.

The Human Development Index is a scientific indicator with takes into account life expectancy, literacy and the general quality of life in each country.

Despite an ongoing food and medicine shortage — largely due to illegal hoarding by corporations owned by the right-wing opposition — Venezuela maintained a higher ranking than Brazil, Peru, and Colombia.

In the report, each of the 188 countries is given a measurement between zero and one. The closer to one, the higher the level of human development.

Venezuela was measured at 0.767 — better than Brazil’s 0.754, Peru’s 0.740 and Colombia’s 0.727 — only slightly lower than its 2013 rating of 0.771, and significantly higher than its ranking of 0.677 in 2000, just as President Hugo Chavez came to power and initiated his Bolivarian Revolution.

In South America, only Chile, Argentina and Uruguay had higher rankings than Venezuela.

Overall, the U.N. report noted that despite the general progress recorded in the Human Development Index during the last 25 years, extreme poverty and exclusion persist in Latin America, mainly due to unequal distribution of income.

The report also addresses the role of women, who continue to be poorer in general terms, partly because of unpaid work that undermines their professional and personal development. It also identified a deepening of inequalities against the indigenous population, who on average receive fewer years of education.

The report highlights the need to target universal policies to reduce human development deficits among the excluded. It directly recommends promoting inclusive growth, with an emphasis on women and mobilizing resources to meet human development priorities.

“Investments focused on human development priorities can provide low-cost but high-quality services and infrastructure for disadvantaged and marginalized groups,” the report said.

The U.S. Senate Just Sold out Your Internet Privacy*

The U.S. Senate Just Sold out Your Internet Privacy*

By Caleb Chen

Despite widespread disapproval from constituents, S.J.Res 34 has passed the United States Senate with a vote of 50-48, with two absent votes. Earlier today, at 12:25 Eastern March 23, 2017, the US Senate voted on S.J.Res 34, and will use the Congressional Review Act to strip away broadband privacy protections that kept Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and telecoms from selling your internet history and app data usage to third parties. S.J.Res 34 was first introduced by 23 Republican Senators earlier this month and its blitz approval is a giant blow to privacy rights in the United States.

The resolution, which is now effectively half passed, will hand responsibility of broadband privacy regulation from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and disallow the FCC from making any rules protecting Internet privacy ever again.

The 50 Senators that voted for S.J.Res 34 are (thanks to happyxpenguin):

Senator Roberts (R-KS)
Senator Lee (R-UT)
Senator Boozman (R-AR)

Dr. Toby Watson, a clinical psychologist is the former Chief Psychologist for the State of Wisconsin Department of Corrections, and the past International Executive Director of the International Society of Ethical Psychology and Psychiatry (ISEPP).

He is an outspoken critic of psychiatric industry’s claim that mental disorders are biological or medical conditions despite the fact there are no scientific or medical tests to back up this claim.

He has submitted written testimony and research to the FDA on the dangers of SSRI antidepressants and Electroshock; he has testified before the Congress of Mexico against psychotropic drugging of children and for 15 years has educated the courts and people about the harmful outcomes of psychiatric treatment, including how psychotropic drugs can cause violent and suicidal behaviour.

FCC: Intimidating Press, Suppressing Science at ‘5G’ Announcement

FCC: Intimidating Press, Suppressing Science at ‘5G’ Announcement

By Alexandra Bruce

Josh del Sol, Director of the award-winning Independent documentary, ‘Take Back Your Power’, about the many dangers of SmartMeters has put together this chilling piece about the impending roll-out of the 5G cellphone network.
It shows Former Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman, Tom Wheeler making a rather intimidating announcement about the potential of 5G to blanket every corner of the planet in the electrosmog of a wireless Internet of Things (IOT) and how we shouldn’t waste time testing for health safety issues, because the U.S. will leads all other countries in this emerging technology, with tens of billions of dollars will be made.

Meanwhile, just one month before Wheeler’s announcement, the U.S. National Toxicology Program had just released a report from its $25M study, concluding that wireless radiation increases cancer.

The revelations of Edward Snowden and WikiLeaks’ Vault 7, showing the methods by which the U.S. Government can access every move we make will be put into overdrive with the 5G network, as if these weren’t invasive and illegal enough.

Even former Director of the CIA, James Woolsey is on record, stating that the IOT and the SmartGrid are terrible ideas, which leave us extremely vulnerable to hacking by would-be enemies.
If Tom Wheeler doesn’t strike you as scary enough, his successor appointed by Trump on January 20, 2017, Ajit Pai is even scarier. At least Wheeler backed down from his proposed attacks on Net Neutrality, after enough activists (myself included) made too much noise. Pai, who was formerly General Counsel to Verizon Communications, Inc. has indicated that he would vote against Net Neutrality.

It gets worse. Pai has also said during a 2015 conference that he would like to crack down on the Alternative Media, “It is conceivable to me to see government saying, ‘We think the Drudge Report is having a disproportionate effect on our political discourse. He doesn’t have to file anything with the FEC. The FCC doesn’t the ability to regulate anything he says, and we want to start tamping down on websites like that…The First Amendment means not just the cold parchment that’s in the Constitution…online speech is a dangerous brave
new world that needs to be regulated.”

NWO Satanic Death Cult Exposed

If it seems like Evil is pervading the world, with “Endless Wars” of aggression, GMOs, paedophile
slavery rings, fluoridated water, mandated vaccines, chemtrails and False Flags, it is all connected and part of a Satanic religion practiced by the controlling elite, according to Ron Johnson, publisher of STFNews (for Stranger than Fiction).

He says that the suspicions of “conspiracy theorists”, like him have now been validated by the
revelations of WikiLeaks, etc.

Ron Johnson joins Sean Kerrigan of the SGTReport to elaborate.

‘Grand Canyon’s Lost City of Sipapu

‘Grand Canyon’s Lost City of Sipapu

From Alexandra Bruce

This film, featuring publisher-explorer, David Hatcher Childress is about an expedition in search of the exact location of the original Sipapu, where the current Adamic race of man is said to have emerged from a hole in the ground, following a major global flood cataclysm, which had destroyed most life on Earth, according to legends of the Pueblo peoples of the American
Southwest. These tribes include the Hopi, Keres, Towa and Zuñi.

This was not the first time that the gods had destroyed their creation, according to the Puebloans, whose traditional beliefs call the current cycle we’re in now the ‘Fourth World’.

The Maya World Age doctrine, from the Guatemala Highlands and Mexico’s Yucatán peninsula has significant commonalities with those of many other indigenous groups throughout the Americas most notably, with the Puebloans, except that the Maya believe we’re currently in the ‘Sixth World’, as expressed in their holy scripture, the Popol Vuh and on stelae found at various Maya temple complexes.
World Age doctrines are pervasive in the ancient world and it is also part of the modern practices of Hinduism and Buddhism, in their traditional Yuga system of World Ages. According Hindus, we are currently in the middle of a Dark Age called the Kali Yuga or the Age of Vice. (It would be hard to argue against this).

 

What’s interesting is that the Kali Yuga began in 3102 BC, as correlated to the Gregorian calendar. This date may commemorate the “flood of Manu” of the Hindu Puranas, which is shockingly similar to the Biblical story of Noah. Manu was the Hindu equivalent of Noah, who is said to have rescued the ancestors of all life forms alive on Earth today. Atra-Hasis was the Akkadian hero of a similar global flood myth, one of three deluge stories, which have come down to us from Babylonia.
Also interesting is that the last epoch of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, which famously ended on December 21, 2012 began in 3114 BC, or 12 years before the beginning of Kali Yuga (correlated to the Gregorian calendar).
When I was researching this topic for this book I wrote, I was shocked to discover that Ancient Greek mythology also had a tradition of the “Five Ages of Man”, sharing some stunningly specific details to those found in the Popol Vuh and in the ancient Vedic Yuga system, with its own Golden Age, Silver Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age.
In the West, this basic concept of cyclical ages stealthily survives, in the form of “Western Astrology” (actually based on an ancient Babylonian system). Even those who don’t know much about astrology have probably heard that we’re moving out of the Age of Pisces and into the Age of Aquarius. The World Age doctrine of Western astrology is based on the Precession of the Equinoxes. It is therefore cyclical, with each sign of the zodiac dominating the night sky for just over 2,000 years, adding up to a full round of 26,000 years and then starting over again. People who believe in astrology believe that the attendant qualities or “personality traits” of each sign affect the character of society during the 2,000+ years that each sign “rules” the sky.
The main problem with astrology is there is no general agreement about when Pisces ends and Aquarius begins. I’ve read that the Age of Aquarius began six hundred years ago and elsewhere that it doesn’t start for another six hundred years, which averages out to now!

A lot of things happened around this 300-year period around 3000 BC:- 3100 BC, The Indus Valley Civilization constructed the first advanced system of drainage.

Menes unified the Upper and Lower Kingdoms of Ancient Egypt and a new capital was erected at Memphis.

Umm al Binni lake in the Al Amarah region of Iraq may be an impact crater, as suggested by satellite imagery, (Master 2001, 2002). The age of the crater is estimated to be 5,000 years old. Back then, the region was under the Persian Gulf at a depth of approximately 10m (Larsen and Evans 1978: 237). The alleged Umm al Binni impact could be responsible for producing the energy equivalent to thousands of Hiroshima-sized bombs and the impact-induced tsunamis would have devastated coastal Sumerian cities. This may provide an alternate origin of the 2.6m sediment layer discovered during an excavation of the Sumerian city of Ur by Leonard Wooley in 1954. Descriptive passages in The Epic of Gilgamesh may describe such an impact and tsunami,
suggesting a link to the Sumerian Deluge (Matthews 2001; Britt 2001).

Neolithic period ends, Aegean Bronze Age starts, Minoan civilization starts, Troy is founded. Stonehenge construction begins. In its first version, it consists of a circular ditch and bank,
with 56 wooden posts.
– 2807 BC, A very large-scale comet or meteorite impact event in the southern Indian ocean caused enormous mega-tsunamis. It is theorized that the legends of the Great Flood in the Bible,
the Maya Popol Vuh, the Hindu Puranic story of Manu, the story of Deucalion in Greek mythology and the story of Utnapishtim in the Epic of Gilgamesh may be associated with this event, which created the 18-mile wide Burckle Crater, under 12,500 feet of ocean, off
the coast of present-day Madagascar.

U.N. Praises Iran’s “Exemplary” Leadership in Hosting Refugees*

“It’s a story that’s not told often enough,” said a representative for U.N. high commissioner for refugees

The United Nations praised Iran’s “exemplary” refugee resettlement program this week, saying the country’s decades-long effort to house approximately 3 million displaced Afghans was “a story that’s not told often enough.”

Sivanka Dhanapala, head of the office for the U.N. High Commissioner for Refugees in Tehran, made the remarks on the same day that President Donald Trump sought to reinstate a controversial 90-day ban on travelers from six majority-Muslim countries, including Iran, and a 120-day ban on all refugees. The new executive order was blocked from going into effect by two courts.

Roughly 6 million people were displaced from Afghanistan to neighboring countries amid the Soviet War in 1979. Nearly 40 years later, Tehran still shelters 1 million registered refugees, and another 2 million are thought to be living there, making it the world’s fourth-largest refugee population.

“The leadership demonstrated by the Iranian government has been exemplary in hosting refugees and keeping borders open,” Dhanapala said on Wednesday.

The U.N. also hailed a 2015 directive from Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei that called on education administrators to allow all Afghan children, documented or not, to attend Iranian schools.

“We’ve also worked with the government on incorporating refugees into a government-sponsored health Add New insurance scheme which is a ground-breaking development not just for Iran but globally for refugees,” Dhanapala said.

“In a world where you have multiple bad stories about hosting refugees, I think Iran is really a good news story,” he said.

“It’s a story that’s not told often enough.”
