Are you watching this latest pattern in the news? Mega scandals about Benghazi and the IRS and more breaking out and seeming to threaten the charade we call our government? Even liberal mainstays like the leg-thrilled Chris Matthews are getting in on the Obama bashing bandwagon with all that’s seeming to be revealed…
Chris Matthews Sours on Obama
President Obama “obviously likes giving speeches more than he does running the executive branch,” Chris Matthews said tonight.
Yes, you read that right: The MSNBC host who in 2008 felt a “thrill going up my leg” after hearing Obama speak has grown disenchanted. Tonight’s episode of Hardball saw Matthews delivering a rare, unforgiving grilling of the president as severe as anything that might appear on Fox News.
“What part of the presidency does Obama like? He doesn’t like dealing with other politicians — that means his own cabinet, that means members of the congress, either party. He doesn’t particularly like the press…. He likes to write the speeches, likes to rewrite what Favreau and the others wrote for the first draft,” Matthews said.
“So what part does he like? He likes going on the road, campaigning, visiting businesses like he does every couple days somewhere in Ohio or somewhere,” Matthews continued. “But what part does he like? He doesn’t like lobbying for the bills he cares about. He doesn’t like selling to the press. He doesn’t like giving orders or giving somebody the power to give orders. He doesn’t seem to like being an executive.” Continue Reading
In my last article “I Am Money”, I received some sincere questions from people wondering if it is even possible to for us to function without money. It’s difficult (even for me) to figure out where the years of conditioning intersect with reasonable and meaningful concepts on the idea of fair exchange. If the current system of money has done its job properly, it should be intertwined like a weed with our common sense, our emotions and even our spirits.
Money is essentially a spell or a hex. All of those images, symbols and verbiage on the currency are not accidental, and are the function of years of ritualistic alchemist sorcery. Forget what the movies and television have shown to you about sorcery, this is what it actually looks like. Think I’m pushing the boundaries a little? Look around and ask yourself if there is anyone under the spell of “money”.
Let’s see if we can break this down:
First, If we assume that there is actually a need for a medium of exchange (and at least in a transitional sense, I agree), then it would need to be a fair exchange. I will detail this below. Second, we really need to examine our propensity / conditioning toward the illusion of creating and storing “wealth”. As if the Creation wasn’t “wealthy” or abundant enough already, we had to create some abstract method of measuring our progress? Building and storing so-called wealth is really a counter-creational behavior, as it is the essence of materialism. Anything that binds us to the material world is harming our true nature.

(RT) The US Military’s suicide rate grew a startling 15 percent in 2012. The Pentagon, which has put great effort into lowering military suicide rates, has acknowledged that battle casualties are no longer the primary reason for soldiers’ deaths. (continued below)

Almost two weeks ago; 5 month old Sammy Nikolayev was showing flu symptoms when his parents took him to Sutter memorial hospital in Sacramento, California. Once there however, the boy’s parents Anna and Alex took issue with several procedures being done to the boy, such as giving him antibiotics when none were called for. After disagreements with the hospital staff, the young parents removed their child from the hospital without proper discharge procedure, and sought a second medical opinion atKaiser Permanente Hospital, where a doctor examined Sammy; and content the child was healthy and well cared for, released him to go home.
Back at their home the Nikolayev’s were astonished to see California Child Protective Services roll up with a mighty police escort. The police assaulted Alex Nikolayev in the yard in order to get his house keys which they used to enter the home without benefit of warrant and tore the now terrified young Sammy away from his loving mother’s arms…and into state custody. Just like that! And as of now Sammy is still in the slammer where his parents can visit for just one hour a day…no cameras allowed.
That is right, Sacramento California! Right here in the good old USA! Jack booted storm troopers swoop right in under color of authority giving the father a complimentary beat-down while stripping the innocent infant from mother’s arms. It seems that Sutter hospital didn’t like being blown off by American citizens, so it called Child Protective Service, accusing the Nikolayev’s of child abuse and neglect. The incident has turned into a nightmare for the family as seemingly every part of the state bureaucracy wants to have a say in the matter while none of them are willing to admit wrongdoing and return the stolen child.

(NaturalNews) A Utah man’s recent discovery of an old fast food hamburger hiding in a coat pocket serves as a reminder to us all about why we continue to choose fresh foods as close to their natural states as possible over processed foods. What began as a month-long experiment to see how long it takes for a basic McDonald’s hamburger to decompose turned in a shocking revelation for David Whipple, whose 14-year-old McDonald’s hamburger still looks almost exactly the same today as it did back in 1999 when he first purchased it.
Mirroring a similar experiment involving a McDonald’s Happy Meal in the 2004 documentary Super Size Me, Whipple set out back in 1999 to see how long it would take for a McDonald’s hamburger to grow mold and decompose, normal processes that typically occur in natural foods. After one month, the McDonald’s hamburger appeared mostly unchanged, and Whipple eventually forgot about it. Several years later, however, his wife discovered the hamburger in a coat pocket and observed that it still had not changed in appearance, texture, or even smell.
“It wasn’t on purpose,” Whipple is quoted as saying about the now 14-year-old hamburger by ChristianPost.com. “I was showing some people how enzymes work and I thought a hamburger would be a good idea. And I used it for a month and then forgot about it. It ended up in a paper sack in the original sack with the receipt in my coat pocket tossed in the back of my truck and it sat there for, I don’t know, two or three months.”
“My wife didn’t discover it until at least a year or two after that. And we pulled it out and said, ‘Oh my gosh, I can’t believe it looks the same way.’” Continue Reading
