How To Start a Blog and Make Money Online – in 5 Easy Steps

dreamstimemedium_492619

Here are 5 EASY steps we’ll take together to help you start a blog and make money online.

Are you curious about how to make money online? Think that starting a blog is the way to go?
Great! Starting a blog can be a solid way to make long-term income – just for doing some writing on stuff you actually like and care about. But there’s a little more to it than that AND it may not be for everyone. This is not a get rich quick or plug and play business. If that’s what you’re looking for, this is not the place for you.

BlogPress: How To Start A BlogYes, you can make a lot of money online but, like other traditional businesses, it’s not guaranteed. Anyone who tells you otherwise, is not being truthful.

Our goal is to help people who are really serious about building a real online business – because you can make a little, or a lot of money. That all depends on you…

Here’s the big difference between making money online and going to a job every day. If you do it right, the work you do today, this week, and this year – will continue making money for years to come. It’s an investment rather than trading your time for money.

So how does this work? Search engines find and cache the articles that you write, and over time each post is “worth more” to the search engines. That means you’ll get more web site traffic with every passing month as your site gains credibility. This does not happen overnight. It takes persistence and even some hard work – but you can do it if you’re serious and committed…

We did it (Dan and I both walked away from our corporate jobs and now do this full time), and so can you. The good news is that you get to take advantage of what we’ve learned over the last several years and avoid the sand traps that we had to dig our way out of.

So let’s get started – RIGHT NOW!

Decide To Start Today

TODAY. No, not tomorrow, not next week, and not next month. Tomorrow always feels “safe” because you’re not having to make a decision. The power of today is that you make that commitment to yourself. And that is the first step to success.

This step is the most critical one, and it’s where most people get stuck. Don’t dream about doing something. Just get up and do it.

Explosive: Here’s The Real Reason Holistic Doctors Are Being Killed

Before proceeding to this article, please note that the total number of holistic & alternative doctors found dead in the last month and a half has risen up to nine. There are also five more that are still missing. You can find all the details HERE.

In recent news, we’ve seen the mysterious deaths disappearances of numerous alternative and holistic physicians and a recent video may explain why.

According to the video researcher, GcMAF is a naturally occurring process in the human body. It starts off as a Gc protein. The Gc protein in an absolutely healthy human being will create its own, natural Gc Macrophage Activating Factor (GcMAF) to help protect the human immune system.

What is being found by these doctors is that something is being introduced into the human body that is called Nagalase. This Nagalase protein is this:

Nagalase is a protein made by all cancer cells and viruses (HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, influenza, herpes, Epstein-Barr virus, and others).

Nagalase causes immunodeficiency. Nagalase blocks production of GcMAF, thus preventing the immune system from doing its job.

There is something that is being introduced into the human body that is causing this Nagalase to block the naturally occurring production of GcMAF.

Nagalase precision

Like a stealth bomber, the Nagalase enzyme synthesized in and released from a cancer cell or a virus particle pinpoints the GcMAF production facilities on the surface of your T and B lymphocytes and then wipes them out with an incredibly precise bomb. How precise? Let me put it this way:

Nagalase locates and attacks one specific two-electron bond located at, and only at, the 420th amino acid position on a huge protein molecule (DBP), one of tens of thousands of proteins, each containing millions of electrons.

This is like selectively taking out a park bench in a major city from six thousand miles away. More astonishing, if that is possible, Nagalase never misses its target. There is no collateral damage.

What Dr. Bradstreet found, considering that this Nagalase blocks the naturally occurring GcMAF production in the human body, he found that with autistic children, that they had a highly elevated protein count of Nagalase. Then what he determined, and what many of these other alternative medical doctors were determining was, the Nagalse is surely causing the autism.

So then they were starting to wonder,

If this is happening and it’s occurring right at the very beginning of autism, when autism is occurring, then it has to be being introduced into the human body at the time, or just before the autism is occurring in the human body which appears to be at a state of infancy, not at birth.

What does that tell you? That’s right, the Nagalase inhibitor that this GcmAF protein blocker is being introduced into the human body DURING vaccination.

You are intentionally having your immune system compromised with a vaccination and some children are automatically coming up with autism, depending on their blood make-up, are acquiring autism.

In the past months, Dr. Bradstreet has become interested in Nagalase, which he describes as an enzyme “produced by cancer cells and viruses.”

He thinks it unlikely that children with autism have undiagnosed cancers, and thus suspicion falls on a viral etiology.

Dr. Bradstreet writes, “Viruses make the Nagalase enzyme as part of their attachment proteins. It serves to get the virus into the cell and also decreases the body’s immune reaction to the virus-thereby increasing the odds of viral survival.”

Dr. Bradstreet and others believe that this Nagalase, which Dr. Bradstreet and Dr. Gonzalez have proven unequivocally, is being introduced into the body at vaccination.

Since the GcMAF naturally occurs in the body but it’s being inhibited by the introduction of Nagalase protein blocker.

There is a product that is being worked on in Europe that has been blocked and is highly illegal in the United States to use because the FDA and the pharmaceutical companies want it kept out of the United States and it goes by the exact same name as the naturally occurring GcMAF. that occurs in your body.

So what they were finding is that this GcMAF treatment product, which is being created, actually was reversing autism, reversing tumors, shrinking tumors, curing cancers… that’s what they were finding.

The video researcher stated the following:

“The FDA is known to have visited almost every single one of these alternative medical doctors before they died. Why? It’s because they have found undercover, that they (these alternative doctors), were working secretly and trying to help out their patients SURVIVE… to LIVE… to reshrink their tumors, to reverse their cancers.

“They were finding evidence that autism was being reversed. They were finding, as what Dr. Bradstreet has found that this protein obviously is being introduced… the Nagalase protein is being introduced at the vaccination stage of someone’s human life.”

The video uploader stated the following in the more info section of this video:

“Please help to protect me as I am those who helped me with this explosive information share everywhere so it is less likely they will come for me like they have for these now deceased doctors.”

He also encouraged people to visit the following websites:

Update

A new video has arisen showing that the motive for a search warrant of Dr. Bradstreet’s office was for any evidence of GcMAF.  The video uploader included a link for the official court document which you can view here.

The document stated that the following items were to be seized from Dr. Bradstreet:

  • All Globulin component Macrophage Activating Factor (GCMAF), GC-Globulin, and/or any other products or component substances thereof that constitute misbranded drugs under the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
  • All records, in whatever for, associated with or pertaining to the acquisition, possession, distribution of unapproved drugs, prescriptions, and/or health care products. The records to be seized include those related to the brokering, ordering, purchasing, shipping, sale, and distribution of any drugs, including business journal and ledgers; tax records, and related work papers; purchase and sales records; communications; bank and financial records; shipment/transport records; supplier and customer records; regulatory compliance records and communications with federal, state, and local authorities; and any unopened mail addressed to or from the companies mentioned therein.

The Pyramid of Death: Who REALLY Runs This World?

ATTENTION! : Read this article with discernment! Don’t be swayed!

While there are many interpretations of who this is, is it possible that the person at the top of this pyramid isn’t even from this planet and relies on us killing one another to survive on sacrificial energies?

Ancient pyramid systems of control were run by the Pharaohs. In order to hide their extraterrestrial overlords, their pyramid of control looked like this:

The next pyramid of control involved the monarchy and looked like this:

We’re led to believe that the following pyramid is the current system of control, with money and the Pope/Vatican at the top of it:

You can read more about the Pope in the following article, “Why Is The Pope’s Mitre Shaped Like A Fish?

Many people blindly believe that their country’s respective leaders hold the ultimate power, but fail to realize that these leaders are answering to higher powers.

For example, in the United States, President Jimmy Carter wanted to see the UFO files and was not allowed to do so by the head of the CIA, George H.W. Bush.

So, if the head of the CIA is above the president, then who is running the United States?

While many people believe that secret societies (such as the free masons or the Rosicrucians) control how events are being played out on the planet, these people are still being controlled by higher powers.

Within these secret societies, we see compartmentalized pyramids:

Some would say that the Pope is the most powerful person on the planet but even he is being controlled and overshadowed by the “Black Pope” who remains unseen and hidden from the general public.

If the Pope was the most powerful person on the planet, then why is there starvation and homelessness when he has the ability to end all of this by being the wealthiest entity on the planet?

The following is a quote from the bible, Matthew 19:21:

21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.”

The Roman Catholic Church is wealthy enough to feed, clothe, and shelter EVERY person on this planet so why doesn’t the Pope rely on the same words in the bible that he expects everyone else to abide to? More importantly, why does the Roman Catholic Church have so much gold?

Who is above the Vatican?

This is arguably the most accurate pyramid of control that you’ll find as you go down the rabbit hole:

Corporations, such as Monsanto, JP Morgan, and Exxon are all controlled by the Bilderbergers, so this is why they are not on the list.

World leaders and politicians did not make the list either, because as many people realize, they are selected, not elected.

In any given election, you’ll ALWAYS see a choice between the lesser of two evils. It doesn’t matter which one you choose, it will always be the same shit from a different toilet.

The Anunnaki connection

The Sumerian texts are one of the oldest texts known to mankind and predate anything written in the bible or any other religious texts.

According to the Sumerian texts, the Anunnaki traveled to this planet in search of gold to use as a micro-dust to protect their own planet of origin’s atmosphere from radiation.

At first, the Anunnaki mined their own gold but realized this was too much work, so they genetically manipulated the genes of the earth species eventually create the Adama race or what we know today as mankind.

This explains why we only have 46 chromosomes with 2 of them being fused together while all other earth primates have 48.

This also explains why there is such a need and demand for gold in every society.

More than 350 artifacts were found in Ecuador in an old tunnel system used for mining gold. One particular artifact shows the same one dollar bill pyramid with an all-seeing eye at the top of it (below).

Under a black light, the eye takes on an interesting hue while on the bottom of this artifact, you can see a star map of Orion’s Belt along with writing that is older than any known writing on this planet.

According to the research of Klaus Dona, the same writing has been found all over the world, proving that there was a pre-existing GLOBAL civilization that is much older than any Sanskrit writings.

At the 2:00 minute marker, Klaus Dona talks about this artifact:

Because this artifact shows a map of Orion’s Belt on the bottom of it, then what is the significance of it? Is it possible that our overlord(s) came from Orion’s Belt? Or, perhaps, are these Orion entities lower level overlords for the Anunnaki?

Archons

Even older Gnostic texts talk about the archons who are nonphysical entities that feed off of negative energy such as fear. This explains why you’ll never feel good after watching the  nightly news or reading the headlines of any given newspaper.

Many people believe that the picture below is the pyramid of control:

What is NOT being shown are the extraterrestrials who are above them. In ascending order, you’ll find:

  • Lower level malevolent extraterrestrials (e.g. Dracos and Reptilians)
  • Higher level malevolent extraterrestrials such as the Anunnaki
  • Archons & other invisible matter
  • Highest level malevolent extraterrestrial(s) who literally exist and feed off of fear, death, pain, suffering, misery, and sacrifices; Controllers of the archons

Is it possible that the archons are controlling the Anunnaki and are ultimately represented near the top of the pyramid? In this writer’s opinion, most definitely!

At top of the pyramid, you’ll find a “Wizard of Oz” type of malevolent extraterrestrial controlling (and programming) them as well.

One commonality that you will find on EVERY level is the use of fear for controlling purposes. Ironically, because each level is so compartmentalized, they fear and distrust one another.

What if…

What if the Pope (or whatever Earth born entity is above him) is being threatened to keep us in subservience, control, and conformity while living in perpetual fear in order to appease his extraterrestrial overlords through sacrifices (such as every world war, 9/11, etc…)?

If you look at the various blood types and Rh values, then you’d realize that it’s impossible to have so many races and ethnicites on this planet coming from “Adam and Eve”. “Adam” is short for the “Adama race” who the Anunnaki created, so is it possible that all races were created as sub-specie experiments?

You can read more about blood types and Rh values in this article, “Does Rh Negative Blood Type Equal Alien Heritage?“.

At the highest levels of freemasonry, you’ll find the motto, “Ordo ab chao” which means “order out of chaos”. This is why the divide and conquer premise is constantly being used against us, many times without us even seeing it even when it’s right before our eyes.

For example, divide and conquer is the premise behind every sporting event, yet we buy into it without questioning why. We see team names such as the New York “GIANTS,” San Francisco “Giants,” or Tokyo Giants and never question the origin of these team names. (Read about giants on Earth).

Is it possible that they ultimately represent the Anunnaki or some other extraterrestrial race of controlling beings?

Television programs such as “Survivor” or “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” rely on the same premise.

Ultimately, the end goal is fame (ego) and money (materialism) which we have bought into as a global society and cannot fathom what we would do if there was no such thing as money.

Additionally, these shows pit us against one another through the divide and conquer principles.

Once the bottom of the pyramid unites

I’ve often said, “Once the bottom of the pyramid unites (ALL of us), the rest will collapse“. This is why it’s so important for all of us on the bottom of the pyramid to come together and unite and why we need to appreciate any race that is different from our own instead of ignoring or avoiding one another.

More importantly, we cannot buy into the “race wars” that our overlords are pushing upon us. As long as they keep us divided as people, we will never unite as one. In the end, the only ones who are truly preventing this from happening is ourselves.

The good news is that we are all awakening to these truths and are starting to come together as one.

This is why there seems to be such a push to keep us living in even more fear lately, as our overlords are panicking over how their plans have been aborted or delayed, such as the North American Union and the New World Order.

Astrological timetables

Astrology is an important tool in this equation. In alchemy, there is a saying, “As above, so below“. In other words, what is happening in the celestials is being reflected to our planet and in turn, to each individual.

Astrology relies on the cycles of time that repeat over and over again. When new cycles begin, we can learn from the last time we saw these celestial energies. For example, the last time Pluto entered Capricorn was in the 1700’s during both the French and American Revolutions.

Pluto is known as the “Destroyer” and will tear down everything that is not in humanity’s best interests.

In 2008, Pluto entered Capricorn again and stays there until 2023. Right on schedule, we saw a collapse of the banking system in the United States, with the exception of the “Too big to fail/jail” banks.

Right on schedule, we also have seen a number of revolutions all around the world. These are NOT coincidences!

Our extraterrestrial overlords are very well versed in astrology and use this as their time table as well.

It appears that our earth-born overlords are way behind schedule and are being pressured by their extraterrestrial overlords for either more sacrifices and/or a “One World / New World Order”.

As more and more people awaken and see how we’ve been controlled and manipulated for millennia, the less we will tolerate being manipulated by our earth-born and extraterrestrial overlords.

Pluto in Capricorn is OUR opportunity to create what is in humanity’s best interests.

Our overlords know this and will try everything within their own perceived powers to prevent this from happening, but it all starts with the bottom of the pyramid uniting as one as well as each individual doing his and her own “inner work” to resolve any issues that keep repeating within his or her own lives.

Malevolent extraterrestrials are trying to flee the planet

According to contactee Corey Goode, the Dracos are shitting bricks and their overlords are pressuring them to intimidate the “Blue Sphere Alliance” into letting them leave our solar system, along with the human shills (world leaders, politicians, etc.) who have enslaved humanity.

Corey will be giving weekly updates with David Wilcock on GaiamTV.  Click here to subscribe.

According to Dr. Simon Atkins, “Wave X” is arriving, bringing intergalactic waves of energy that will expose the controllers.

Atkins stated that CERN is being used to prevent these incoming energies from arriving, adding that no matter what they try, it will not prevent these waves of intergalactic energy from transforming our entire solar system. He talks about CERN around the 1:09:20 marker of the following video:

CERN may also be used to created portals or wormholes as a means of the ruling controllers to exit our solar system before they can be held accountable for their crimes against humanity. It’s possible that Wave X is prohibiting these malevolent beings from leaving or it might be the veil or quarantine that was placed over our planet many millennia ago.

Lifting the veil

At the bottom of the pyramid, you’ll find the rest of us. What would happen if we no longer conformed to our own “overlords”? World peace.

Many people are oblivious to what is happening before their very own eyes but soon, it will become blatantly obvious as the veil lifts and more people awaken every day.

In the meanwhile, reclaim your own personal sovereignty. As Cameron Day recommends:

“The first step is to engage the Self-Clearing System protocols and revoke all agreements that you have made with any beings that don’t have your best interests in mind. Next, revoke all agreements to see reality in polarized terms.

“Every time you revoke agreements, be sure to reclaim your energy that had gone into them. Then affirm your commitment to transcend the control paradigms of the corrupt demiurge without being side-tracked by pointless polarity battles.”

You can also turn off your TV, literally. Whether your TV is turned on or off, it can emit negative frequencies that play on your psyche. Virtually everything that is on TV is a distraction that prevents you from finding out your true, divine purpose for being here.

Lastly, we ALL need to come together. As I mentioned, once the bottom of the pyramid unites, the rest will collapse.

This is why those in power right now are trying to push race wars and have kept us economically divided. It’s apparent that whoever is in control of this planet is using us for slavery and for sacrificial reasons through perpetual wars with one another.

We have the power in numbers to make this world into a literal paradise without the need for economic subservience, but it all boils down to everyone coming together under a common cause and standing up for the best interests of humanity.

Without us, NONE of them exist.

A Warning For All Parents Backed By Science: What WiFi, Cell Phones & More Are Really Doing To Our Health

*This article only represents a very small fraction of the research regarding the dangers associated with these devices.

We encourage you to further your own research, and just wanted to provide a base to let you know that it’s something more of us need to pay attention to.

Did you know that a child’s brain absorbs much more radiation than that of an adult?

Dr. Martin Blank, Ph.D., from the Department of Physiology and Cellular Biophysics at Colombia University, has joined a group of scientists from around the world who are making an international appeal to the United Nations regarding the dangers associated with the use of various electromagnetic emitting devices, like cells phones and WiFi.

Below is a video of him outlining the various dangers associated with these devices.

Multiple studies have revealed that cell phone radiation can cause cancer. Did you know that The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) classified radio frequency fields (including those from cell phones) as a possible carcinogen in 2011? (source)

The dangers of cell phone use gained a lot of mainstream credibility in 2011 when the World Health Organization (WHO) admitted that cell phone radiation may cause cancer.

The statement was based off of a cumulative decision made by a team of 31 scientists, from 14 different countries, after reviewing evidence that suggested this to be the case.

You can read more about that here. It’s pretty startling news, especially given the fact that a child’s brain absorbs much more radiation than that of an adult.

Pesticides Detected in 45% of Organic Produce and 77% of Organic Grapes

The most common recommendation made by health experts in the area of produce selection is to choose “organic” varieties for maximum health benefits. We trust organic label certifications because they are supposed to comply with organic standards set by national governments and international organizations.

Synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers are not allowed in organic practices, but that’s not always the case. Research by a Food Inspection Agency in Canada has found that nearly half the organic fresh fruits and vegetables tested in the past two years contained pesticide residue, violating maximum allowable limits for the presence of pesticides, the data shows.

Of the 45.8 percent of samples that tested positive for some trace of pesticide. Most consumers of organic food do not expect to hear that the produce they buy contains pesticides, epsecially for the premium paid.

The data released to CBC News under the federal Access to Information Act includes testing of organic fruits and vegetables sampled between September 2011 and September 2013.

The results were not what Winnipeg organic consumer Mathieu Rey was expecting.

“I would hope that the products are without pesticides. That is what I would be looking for,” Rey said in an interview. “I’m trusting the companies to provide a non-pesticide or pesticide-free product.”

As widespread as the pesticide residues were, they were still considerably less than the 78.4 percent of non-organic samples the inspection agency found containing pesticide residues, violating the allowable limits 4.7 percent of the time.

A U.S. Department of Agriculture that found nearly 20 percent of organic lettuce tested positive for pesticide residues piqued our interest. Lots of the lettuce contained quite a bit of spinosad, a pesticide marketed by Dow Chemical under the brand name.

Jeff Gillman, a professor of nursery management at the University of Minnesota, stated “when people are buying organic food, they often make the incorrect assumption that there are no pesticides. It’s true that organic production often uses fewer dangerous chemicals, but certain pesticides are allowed.”

It turns out that a key factor in chemicals being cleared for use on organic crops is whether they occur naturally. Spinosad, for example, comes from the soil bacterium Saccharopolyspora spinosa. It can fatally scramble the nervous systems of insects. It’s also poisonous to mollusks.

The USDA maintains an that can and can’t be used for organic farming. Other potent natural extracts that have been approved for use as pesticides include pyrethrin, derived from chrysanthemums, and azadirachtin, from the Asian neem tree, which was also detected on some samples of organic lettuce.

Synthetic compounds can also make it onto the list as pesticides, if they are relatively nontoxic combinations that include minerals or natural elements, such as copper or sulfur. But some naturally occuring substances, such as nicotine and arsenic are off limits.

Are naturally derived pesticides less toxic than synthetic ones? The answer depends a lot on the dosage, says Gillman.

“To control on the same acre of land,” he explains, “I could use a tiny amount of a potent synthetic that has proved safe over the last 50 years, or a much larger amount of an organic pesticide.” He demurs on saying which is better, saying, “I want people to know that there are definitely tradeoffs.”

In the USDA tests, there was ten times as much spinosad on organic lettuce than was found on conventionally cultivated fruits and vegetables.

Organic Trade Groups Concerned

Most of the fresh produce sampled was imported, with only one-fifth of it grown in Canada.

Of the domestically grown samples, about 43 percent tested positive for at least one pesticide — slightly lower than the 46 percent of imported samples.

Matthew Holmes, head of the Canada Organic Trade Association, says it’s ‘really hard to have a zero pesticide residue any longer. He calls the findings concerning.

“We see pesticide residues throughout our environment. It’s in our soil, they’re in our water, drinking water now, and there’s new reports coming out showing there’s pesticides in fetal cord blood. So unfortunately, it’s really hard to have a zero pesticide residue any longer,” he said.

Pesticides were measured in amounts as little as 0.0001 parts per million (ppm) to greater than three ppm.

“These are very low amounts,” Holmes said.

Rick Holley, an expert in food safety at the University of Manitoba, agreed the residue measurements are small.

But Holley added that the data indicate that consumers who often pay extra to buy organic food might not always be getting their money’s worth.

“If the money is being spent to avoid pesticide residues and have access to food which is healthy, then I think the money is not well-spent,” he said. “[Pesticides] will not be absent.”

Holley said that’s partly because the analytical methodologies are capable of detecting residues in parts per billion or parts per trillion, well below the allowable limits.

How Could Pesticides Get on Produce?

He explained that pesticides can get onto organic produce through contamination of water or soil through pesticide spray drift from neighbouring farms, and through contact with non-organic produce after harvest.

But Holley said some of the larger residue measurements suggest an organic producer deliberately used a pesticide that is not allowed.

“Where pesticide residue levels are at or above the maximum residue levels prescribed, then I think that there’s probably reasonable evidence that that has been the situation,” he said.

Take, for example, an organic tomato imported from Mexico, sampled in the Manitoba-Saskatchewan region. It was tested for four different pesticides and contained residues of two of them — both in amounts that exceeded the allowable limits for those pesticides.

In contrast, some of the samples tested positive for numerous pesticides but at lower levels. An organic pepper imported from Mexico and sampled in Quebec was analyzed for 13 different pesticides and was found to contain minute amounts of 10 of them.

Lesser of Two Evils?

Holmes said past studies have shown the quantity and incidence of pesticide residues in organic produce are consistently lower than those in non-organic.

Analysis of the fungicide thiabendazole in the CFIA’s latest data suggests the amount of pesticide present in the organic produce is lower than on regular produce.

The average quantity of thiabendazole measured on organic apples was 0.02 ppm whereas the average amount measured on non-organic was 0.3 ppm — about 15 times higher.

“I think consumers are looking for not necessarily a zero level, but they’re looking to not contribute to the pesticide residues that are out there and they’re looking to reduce their exposure as much as possible. And I still think we’re seeing in this data that organic offers that,” Holmes said.

He acknowledged there is room for improvement on the part of organic producers, and said he would like to see the amount of pesticide as low as possible.

“The organic sector absolutely believes in continuous improvement, and I would love to see that level go down for all products, not just organic,” said Holmes.

Synthetic pesticides are not allowed under certified organic production regulations, but some other types of pesticides are permitted.

The CFIA did not analyze the data to determine what proportion of the positive tests are for pesticides permitted in organic production.

Some types of organic produce had a higher rate of residue presence than others. For example, 77 percent of organic grape samples tested positive; apples were in the middle at 45 percent testing positive; carrots had a lower positive rate at 30 percent.

‘We’ve Soiled Our Own Bed’

Mark Kastel, a farm policy analyst at the Cornucopia Institute in Wisconsin, said even with nearly half the organic samples containing pesticide residues, organics are still better than non-organic produce.

“It’s a dramatically lower figure than conventional food, so it illustrates the advantages of organics. But it’s also very disturbing that it very clearly illustrates the fact that we’ve soiled our own bed,” Kastel said in an interview with CBC News from his farm near Rockton, Wis.

“Since 1950, we’ve seen an exponential increase in the use of synthetic toxic chemicals to grow our food, and that there now is a high level of contamination in the soil, in groundwater, in surface water,” he added.

“Obviously we’re concerned in the organic industry about fraud,” said Kastel, who has been both an advocate and watchdog of the organic industry on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border.

“I’m very comfortable that the vast majority of all organic fruits and vegetables and other commodities are produced with high integrity, but we do need to protect the ethical farmers that are participating, and businesses in the organic industry — and, most importantly, consumers who are seeking authentic food.”

Kastel called on government regulators to do a better job of scrutinizing organic produce.

It’s important to get to know local farmers more, as well as community-supported agriculture communication strategies. It may be the only way out of this mess.

Alleged Human-Alien Hybrid Found Dead — He Stashed 1,200 Firearms, 6,5 Tons of Ammo and $230,000 in Cash

Just when you think that things couldn’t get any stranger in the world along comes this unusual story which has hit the main news headlines.

An investigation has recently started into the death of a Californian Weapons Hoarder, 60-year-old Jeffrey Alan Lash, whose dead body was found decomposing in a parked up car.

Where this story gets REALLY strange is that his Fiancée truly believed that Lash was some kind of Alien Hybrid, a part-human, part-alien creature, here on earth to protect the Human Race and worked for a Government Secret Agency.

The remains of 60-year-old Jeffrey Alan Lash were discovered last Friday (24th July 2015) in a parked vehicle on Palisades Drive in the Pacific Palisades.

It gets even stranger, when Police search the home of Lash’s fiancée, Catherine Nebron, they found at least 1,200 firearms in the premises, which were valued at over $5 million and weighed more than 6.5 ton.

Just what was Lash preparing to do with all of this weaponry?

Nash was described by people who were close to him as a bit of a loner/weirdo who didn’t really interact well with people.

But where this story gets really odd is that his Fiancee and her employee, Dawn VadBunker, seem to of been convinced that 60 year old Lash was in fact a human-alien hybrid working undercover on behalf of secret US government agencies.

In fact many of Vadbunkers close associates and even her own Mother became concerned by Vadbunkers state of mind, as she was adamant that Lash was indeed some kind of half Alien like Creature, sent here to protect planet Earth.

Could it be that Lash had sever mental issues and was so convinced about this whole story that he could make others believe it too, or could there be something FAR deeper to all of this intriguing, yet creepy, story?

Otherworldly twist: Dawn VadBunker (pictured), 39, who works for Lash’s fiancee,
believed the man was a part-human, part-alien secret agent.
Both VadBunker and her boss, Catherine Nebron, were there when he died July 4

‘It’s worse than a Twilight Zone movie and we’ve lived through hell,’ Laura VadBunker told KTLA over the phone in reference to the odd case.

It was July 4th in a car park in Santa Monica when Lash collapsed in front of Fiancee and Vadbunker.

Lash apparently had severe breathing issues but REFUSED to be treated by anybody, especially not at a Hospital! Both Lash’s fiancee and Vadbunker tried helping him, but the 60 year old died in front of them.

Rather than contact the police or the hospital Nebron and Vadbunker instead loaded Lash’s body into the boot of their SUV and parked in the 17000 block of Palisades Drive and left for Oregon.

Vadbunker and Nebron believed the CIA would come to collect Lash’s body,
so they did not bother contacting police before they left town and traveled to Oregon

Nebron told her lawyer she did not contact police about Lash’s death because she thought his handlers in the CIA or another intelligence agency would come and pick up his remains. It was not until two weeks had passed that an attorney representing Nebron called police and told them about the decaying corpse.

Both Nebron and Vadbunker were CONVINCED that Lash worked for some secret Agency and felt like they done nothing wrong by not contacting the authorities.

Dawn Vadbunker’s mother reported her missing because the 39-year-old mother of two took off without telling anyone and simply appeared to vanish into the night.

As of Thursday morning, Dawn VadBrunker has not returned from Oregon, but instead she did send her mother a letter apologizing for making her family worry for her.

Mrs VadBunkers believes her daughter may be in the “throes of a mental breakdown” and wants her to come home to her teenage daughters and seek treatment.

“Jeffrey Lash’s cache appeared to be a private collection and that there was no evidence that he was selling the weapons or was a licensed firearms dealer.” Said LAPD Chief Kirk Albanese.

A lot of the guns appeared new and unused and many of the weapons even had price tags on them. It really does seem like this guy was in preparation for ‘something’ but exactly what that something is, is an entirely different question.

‘There are a lot of expensive guns here,’ Chief Albanese told The LA Times.

And as if this story couldn’t get much stranger!  Harlan Braun, Nebron’s attorney, said police also seized a number of SUVs modified for use on different types of terrains, including an AMPHIBIOUS vehicle, used to go UNDER water apparently!? $230,000 in cash was also found stashed away.

Among the haul was 6,5 tons of ammunition, but investigators believe it was a private collection – Preparing for war?

Shirley Anderson, who was Lash’s late father’s long term partner, had told the Police that she hadn’t heard from Lash for many years, and that the last time she had seen him he had gone ‘strange’ and distant!

Lash’s Dad was a very successful microbiologist, of which many family members believed that Lash would follow in the same foot steps after enrolling at UCLA in the 1980s to study and become a scientist.

However, he dropped out, and not much is known of his life after that, Anderson said. It would be very interesting to know what Lash was up to in the time he disappeared from the public eye.

‘He was just a loner, as far as we were concerned,’ Anderson said. ‘He just became weird because he changed all of a sudden.’

The family have stated that they knew very little about Lash in his later years and didn’t even know that he had got engaged to somebody.

 The only photo of Lash which has been made public

It has been acknowledged by family members that Lash had always had a keen interest in weaponry, however they were not aware of his ridiculous amount of guns that he had in his possession.

Officers confirmed to the media that they need a few trucks to remove all the guns to a safe location.

Commander Andrew Smith confirmed the arsenal included rifles, pistols and shotguns. He told the LA Times:

‘Our truck couldn’t carry it all. We had to go back and make another trip. ‘The cause of his death has not yet been determined but it is not being treated as homicide.

U.I.P SUMMARY –  When I first saw this story running around the internet I didn’t pay it an awful lot of attention, it was only when  I started seeing this story come up in the mainstream press that I started taking note of these unusual events.

First things first before anybody scoffs at this story, it is important to remember that this story is in fact very TRUE! Mr Lash was found decomposing in his car, with a hidden LARGE stash of weapons and a Fiancée and an employee believing that Mr Lash was a Secret Agent Alien Hybrid, here to defend Planet Earth!

The only part that ‘may’ not be true is whether Mr was actually an Alien Hybrid, his Fiancee certainly believed so! And why was Lash collecting such a HUGE amount of guns and invested heavily in converting cars into underwater type vehicles?!

Could it be that Mr Lash believed this in his own mind, which therefore made it easier to convince others is VERY hard to say, but both his Fiancée and her employee are intelligent individuals which makes you wonder WHAT has been told, or WHAT has been seen!?

Aliens are constantly making the headlines nowadays so it is critically IMPORTANT to keep your eyes and mind open to these types of stories as anything seems possible nowadays!

The Police are investigating Lash to see what his background looked like and whether any of his guns had been involved in any crimes at all! But if it was me personally investigating with the mind-set I have, I would be looking into Lash’s family background, who knows perhaps there is some off ‘gaps’ in their family background – who knows perhaps Lash was some kind of Hybrid, here on earth to help defend the human species…

But sadly we will NEVER know, even if the Police come across some mysteries, they will NOT share any information on whether there is any truth to this story.

Remember the media are designed to manipulate us ALL and are heavily Governed by the Elite.  So please keep an open mind on this story.  Perhaps ‘they’ want us to see Lash as a crazy person… perhaps this is a way of ‘watering’ down an important life changing story.

Or, perhaps, this is just the mind of a crazy man; either way, it will be interesting to know what made Lash believe that he was an ‘Alien Hybrid Secret Agent.’

The Occult Truth Behind Capitalism

In 2008, the loss of 11 billion dollars by the world’s largest investment company, AIG, and the bankruptcy of the US investment bank Lehman Brothers, triggered a domino effect of financial consequences which brought the entire capitalist system within a hair’s breadth of total collapse.

But, as the events leading up to the financial crisis were slowly unveiled, it became ever clearer that the crisis was caused, quite knowingly, by the bankers themselves.
The Cause

In the years leading up to the economic crisis in 2008, banks increased the funding for the riskiest loans (called subprime loans), from $30 billion a year to over $600 billion a year, rigged even higher interest rates on those loans, and then, while the bankers were making billions of dollars of profits off the borrowers’ high interest repayments, they made further profits betting against their customers ever being able to pay back the loans they had just been given.

The FBI warned the government about this in reports as early as 2006, the IMF’s chief economist, Raghurum Rajan, presented a paper to the men in charge of all the world’s major banks, including the Federal Reserve, warning of the potential collapse of the system due to dangerous incentives, and journalist Allan Sloan published articles in Fortune magazine and The Washington Post in 2007 – nothing was done.

Instead, the men who created the crisis were allowed to make billions of dollars of profits before their institutions hit bankruptcy, paid themselves millions of dollars more in bonuses out of the government bailout packages, and left the rest of us to deal with mass increases in unemployment and poverty, and national debts that no amount of austerity measures will ever be able to repay.

The Effect

7 years later and, as you read this, home foreclosures are still on the increase in many US states, the Chinese stock market is teetering on the edge of its own financial meltdown, austerity measures are intensifying in the UK, and the European Union is not unrealistically on the verge of falling apart.

The ever more concentrated power that forms from a system based on a motive of profit before people, planet, morals and ethics is leading many, like me, to investigate new political alternatives.

New left-wing socialist parties, such as Podemos (‘we can’) in Spain and Syriza (‘from the roots’) in Greece, are rising up from the financial ruin of the hardest hit countries, and the socialist debate is picking up serious momentum in the USA, too.

July 2015, and Greece’s new left-wing party Syriza gave the people of Greece the option to vote on continued austerity measures and increased bailouts from Germany and the EU.

Since all the bailout money is only going into paying off interest on the debt that Greece already has – whilst at the same time creating even more debt for Greece thanks to the interest charged on the bailout money itself – for the first time since the Eurozone was created in 1999, people have united en masse to stand up against the irresponsible behaviour of banks and politicians and said ‘no.’

However, this is not the first example of people power since the crisis began. The first rebellion took place in Iceland. People flocked to the streets in protest after the government let the banks borrow 10 times Iceland’s GDP and then left the people of Iceland with a debt to income ratio of 240%.

Ongoing demonstrations that included stones thrown at the parliament building led to a relatively peaceful revolution; the prime minister was indicted, Iceland’s main bank was nationalized, 200 criminal charges were made against the bankers, and debt exceeding 110% of home values was simply wiped clean.

The media has largely ignored these two events, but one event that the global media could not ignore was when thousands of people poured onto the streets in the Wall Street financial district in 2010 demanding a new, humane, sustainable system.

As demonstrations rapidly spread to some 840 cities in the US, and many cities in Europe and Asia, the media was quick to demonize the movement – until finally the demonstrating fizzled out. It therefore may seem that the efforts of Occupy Wall Street were perhaps all in vain, but this is not the case.

The Revolution

Oxfam recently released a report that by 2016, 1% will own more wealth than all the rest of the people on planet earth. In the UK, 1% already owns more wealth than 55% of the population, and in the USA, the top 0.01% are currently worth as much as the bottom 90%. The Occupy Movement is the reason that the idea of the 99% is now in the public debate.

Occupy Wall Street may have fizzled out, but Occupy Together was formed; global solidarity of the 99% is increasing exponentially, new radical left-wing parties are surfacing, new coalitions are forming, and an ever increasing number of demonstrations are taking place, en masse, all over the world.

It is just that the mainstream media is not talking about it – but global revolution is already taking place.

This June, for example, more than 250,000 people from all walks of life and political persuasions took part in a unified anti-austerity march that occupied the streets of London here in the UK – but there was nothing about it on the news.

As I continue to develop my project Wake Up World Education, and its aim to encourage rapid positive social change through education, I have been inspired by all of these events to create a short documentary as the third episode of my Truth Behind Politics series.

The documentary critiques capitalism and its flaws and encourages people to move their money out of the big banks and join the movement for social change.

In just 30 minutes, it covers the history of the central banking system, the Eurozone, the Occupy Movement, the increasing number of coalitions and demonstrations taking place worldwide, recent events in Iceland and in Greece, and asks the audience one main question:

Was Karl Marx right? Is capitalism on the verge of collapse and a positive new community-based social system coming to fruition in its wake?
