Still Alive …. for now

It’s been a little over 9 months since I’ve posted.
The screws are still turning, thinking of ways to, well, screw you !
I’ve spent most of my extra minutes of days gone by, on twitter. I see the same crap from those very days gone by. Nothing is changing for the better, anywhere on this earth. Especially if you’re one of the 99.999%.

I feel as though something big is on it’s way. Maybe this summer but, very very likely before Obama leaves office. That’s how they like to do things, most of the time. It’s been awhile since something BIG happened in the United Failed Sates of Amerkia. Something that will affect many, possibly again on a personal level. It’s what they need. Once again, this will likely include a threat from some middle eastern puppet state, or a threat to one of Amerikas friendly foes. Which one is the question, with so many at this time, being targeted for change. I truly believe what ever happens will be another attack on Amerika itself. Have to get the new breed of dumb asses in lock step, cheering on the young and stupid indoctrinated in the military. Nothing personal here but, they only choose ones that will obey loyally, without question, what it is they’re too do. It makes it easier for them !

I’ve mentioned before that, I’ve been around the block more than once. It still bothers me to this day seeing what was once a ‘great nation’, to the many who live here and many around the world, go to shit. They pump the same shit out every year … things are fine. Everyone who wants a job has one, or can get one. Nothing could be further from the truth. It’s a shame, that those of us who continue to see the lies can’t brainwash the masses into seeing them, like they have brainwashed them into believing them.

I will end with this …. Be very aware of your surroundings if venturing to, or around #Atlanta Georgia this weekend. The below image was posted June 16 2014 … Military Mock Disaster in Atlanta Georgia June 27-28-29 2014 … click to enlarge

Regulators Discover a Hidden Viral Gene in Commercial GMO Crops

Maybe they already know this and it’s all part of the depopulation plan ? Maybe they didn’t know and now that they do, they really don’t care. After all, most of us are useless eaters to the 1%. Silly Meat Puppet ….

via Independent Science News

In the course of analysis to identify potential allergens in GMO crops, the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has belatedly discovered that the most common genetic regulatory sequence in commercial GMOs also encodes a significant fragment of a viral gene (Podevin and du Jardin 2012). This finding has serious ramifications for crop biotechnology and its regulation, but possibly even greater ones for consumers and farmers. This is because there are clear indications that this viral gene (called Gene VI) might not be safe for human consumption. It also may disturb the normal functioning of crops, including their natural pest resistance.

What Podevin and du Jardin discovered is that of the 86 different transgenic events (unique insertions of foreign DNA) commercialized to-date in the United States 54 contain portions of Gene VI within them. They include any with a widely used gene regulatory sequence called the CaMV 35S promoter (from the cauliflower mosaic virus; CaMV). Among the affected transgenic events are some of the most widely grown GMOs, including Roundup Ready soybeans (40-3-2) and MON810 maize. They include the controversial NK603 maize recently reported as causing tumors in rats (Seralini et al. 2012).

The researchers themselves concluded that the presence of segments of Gene VI “might result in unintended phenotypic changes”. They reached this conclusion because similar fragments of Gene VI have already been shown to be active on their own (e.g. De Tapia et al. 1993). In other words, the EFSA researchers were unable to rule out a hazard to public health or the environment.

In general, viral genes expressed in plants raise both agronomic and human health concerns (reviewed in Latham and Wilson 2008). This is because many viral genes function to disable their host in order to facilitate pathogen invasion. Often, this is achieved by incapacitating specific anti-pathogen defenses. Incorporating such genes could clearly lead to undesirable and unexpected outcomes in agriculture. Furthermore, viruses that infect plants are often not that different from viruses that infect humans. For example, sometimes the genes of human and plant viruses are interchangeable, while on other occasions inserting plant viral fragments as transgenes has caused the genetically altered plant to become susceptible to an animal virus (Dasgupta et al. 2001). Thus, in various ways, inserting viral genes accidentally into crop plants and the food supply confers a significant potential for harm.

DuPont Sends in Former Cops to Enforce Seed Patents

Not that anyone I know wants to eat this shit … but what are you going to do. GMO is in everything.

DuPont Co. (DD), the world’s second- biggest seed company, is sending dozens of former police officers across North America to prevent a practice generations of farmers once took for granted.

The provider of the best-selling genetically modified soybean seed is looking for evidence of farmers illegally saving them from harvests for replanting next season, which is not allowed under sales contracts. The Wilmington, Delaware-based company is inspecting Canadian fields and will begin in the U.S. next year, said Randy Schlatter, a DuPont senior manager.

DuPont is protecting its sales of Roundup Ready soybeans, so called because they tolerate being sprayed by Monsanto Co. (MON)’s Roundup herbicide. For years enforcement was done by Monsanto, which created Roundup Ready and dominates the $13.3 billion biotech seed industry, though it’s moving on to a new line of seeds now that patents are expiring. That leaves DuPont to play the bad guy, enforcing alternative patents so cheaper “illegal beans” don’t get planted.

“Farmers are never going to get cheap access to these genetically engineered varieties,” said Charles Benbrook, a research professor at Washington State University’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources. “The biotech industry has trumped the legitimate economic interests of the farmer again by raising the ante on intellectual property.”

Urban Shield Full Scale Functional Exercise – Austin Texas – December 1-2 2012

Just a friendly heads up …

From the website http://www.texsar.org/urbanshield/

The drill is a component of the Greater Austin Area Urban Shield Full-Scale Preparedness Exercise and will include emergency management and hospital personnel, law enforcement and hazmat responders from Travis, Hays and Williamson County. The drill is designed to test responders’ skills at handling a real event involving contamination and mass casualties.

Volunteers will act as victims, which may include participating in the decontamination process and being watered down Some of those serving as victims also will be made up with moulage to resemble injuries.

Saturday, December 1, 2012, at the Travis County Exposition Center, 7311 Decker Lane in Austin.

It is likely that nothing will happen before, during or after this exercise as contaminants are involved. Then again stranger things have happened. Austin Texas is home to about 85 pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, one of those being Hospira, the maker of Sodium thiopental also known as Sodium Pentothal a rapid-onset short-acting barbiturate general anesthetic, the first of three drugs administered during most lethal injections in the United States.

We’ve known of other exercises that have gone live either during [9/11] or around the time of the exercise with the most recent being the ‘Batman Theater Shooting’. It was reported that Colorado university staged an identical exercise the very same day of the deadly ‘Batman’ massacre where students were trained how to react to a gunman firing at people in a movie theater.

Urban Shield even has a video explaining “Why We Are Here!” which opens with clips of September 11 2001 and leads to other scenarios including Urban Warfare training. You can watch it here – http://urbanshield.tv/view?q=4fe80550196c1.flv

I thought this was funny. From the application[PDF] to participate in the Austin Texas Urban Shield –
