BRAVE NOW WORLD
"On Friday, Dec. 21st, there will be a transit of Venus visible from Saturn, and we will be watching it using the Cassini spacecraft," says Phil Nicholson, a Cassini science team member from Cornell University. "This will be the first time a transit of Venus has been observed from deep space."
Because Saturn is 10 times farther from the sun than Earth, this transit of Venus won't be so easy to see. The silhouette of the second planet will be just a tiny black speck on the shrunken disk of a sun 10 times farther from Saturn than Earth. Cassini won't be beaming back any "beauty shots." Nevertheless, the spacecraft will be conducting potentially ground-breaking science.
"As Venus crosses the face of the sun, we will see if we can detect chemical compounds in the planet's atmosphere by looking at the spectrum of sunlight filtered by Venus," explains Nicholson.
This is, essentially, an experiment in exoplanet studies.
NASA's Kepler spacecraft routinely discovers new planets around distant stars by looking for the minuscule reduction in starlight that occurs during a planetary transit.
Watching Venus transit the sun from the faraway orbit of Saturn is a good analog.
Corporations are not "people", they are PERSONS. A person is a fictional entity. You are not a "person", you are a man, but you HAVE a "person". In fact, you have multiple persons: your driver's license, credit card, gym membership card, etc. Your primary? person is your birth certificate, which is a public corporation. I can smell the cognitive dissonance from here. Yes, your birth certificated created a corporate person.
“A really efficient totalitarian state would be one in which the all-powerful executive of political bosses and their army of managers control a population of slaves who do not have to be coerced, because they love their servitude.”
–Aldous Huxley – Brave New World
1. You are legally a debtor and chattel (property) owned by a hidden creditor.
2. There is a hidden lien on everything transacted for by or with a Federal Reserve Note.
3. Your entire alleged wealth is/has been liened, you don’t own anything! You merely have possession by privilege. This privilege may be yanked at any time if you don’t obey the real owner.
4. The Federal Reserve Note is a foreign product owned by a foreign corporation, and not by you or the U.S. government.
5. The States and the United States courts are bankruptcy courts representing the interests and property of the foreign creditor.
6. Without knowing it, you have been compelled into international commercial law, where you have none of your unalienable
rights. Hence, you have been insulated from your birthright, the common Law from which your rights are immutable.
7. You are charged an income (excise) tax for transacting in the foreign commodity known as Federal Reserve Notes.
8. You have been divested of the rights to, value of, and profits from your labor, which has been stolen.
9. Lawful gold coin (pre 1933) money transactions are invisible to the states and national government(s).
10. The real cause of draconian governmental regulation and your loss of rights is the toxic currency.
11. The United States lost its sovereignty in 1933. It is in receivership to the hidden creditor. The bankrupt government is a puppet to the real master, as declared by Banker Rothschild on the cover.
12. The real cause of the current economic calamity is the toxic currency.
13. The hidden creditor (international bankers) owns everything, including you.
14. You have been living within an illusion, believing that you are free, but in reality you are owned!
What the Mayan Elders are Saying About 2012
by Carlos Barrios
Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder and Ajq'ij (is a ceremonial priest and spiritual guide) of the Eagle Clan.
Carlos initiated an investigation into the different Mayan calendars circulating.
Carlos along with his brother Gerardo studied with many teachers and interviewed nearly 600 traditional Mayan elders to widen their scope of knowledge.
Carlos found out quickly there were several conflicting interpretations of Mayan hieroglyphs, petroglyphs, Sacred Books of 'Chilam Balam' and various ancient text.
Carlos found some strong words for those who may have contributed to the confusion:
Carlos Barrios: "Anthropologists visit the temple sites and read the inscriptions and make up stories about the Maya, but they do not read the signs correctly.
It's just their imagination.
Other people write about prophecy in the name of the Maya.
They say that the world will end in December 2012.
The Mayan elders are angry with this. The world will not end. It will be transformed."
"We are no longer in the World of the Fourth Sun, but we are not yet in the World of the Fifth Sun.
This is the time in-between, the time of transition.
As we pass through transition there is a colossal, global convergence of environmental destruction, social chaos, war, and ongoing Earth Changes."
He continues: "Humanity will continue, but in a different way. Material structures will change.
“We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by how we nurture.”
From this we will have the opportunity to be more human. We are living in the most important era of the Mayan calendars and prophecies.
All the prophecies of the world, all the traditions are converging now. There is no time for games.
The spiritual ideal of this era is action."
Carlos tells us: "The indigenous have the calendars and know how to accurately interpret it -- not others.
The Mayan Calendars comprehension of time, seasons, and cycles has proven itself to be vast and sophisticated.
The Maya understand 17 different calendars such as the Tzolk'in or Cholq'ij, some of them charting time accurately over a span of more than ten million years.
"All was predicted by the mathematical cycles of the Mayan calendars. -- It will change --everything will change.
Mayan Day-keepers view the Dec. 21, 2012 date as a rebirth, the start of the World of the Fifth Sun.
It will be the start of a new era resulting from and signified by the solar meridian crossing the galactic equator and the Earth aligning itself with the center of the galaxy."
At sunrise on December 21, 2012 for the first time in 26,000 years the Sun rises to conjunct the intersection of the Milky Way and the plane of the ecliptic.
This cosmic cross is considered to be an embodiment of the Sacred Tree, The Tree of Life, a tree remembered in all the world's spiritual traditions.
“It is always wise to look ahead, but difficult to look further than you can grok.”
Some observers say this alignment with the heart of the galaxy in 2012 will open a channel for cosmic energy to flow through the Earth, cleansing it and all that dwells upon it, raising all to a higher level of vibration. Carlos reminds us: "This process has already begun.
Change is accelerating now and it will continue to accelerate.
If the people of the Earth can get to this 2012 date in good shape without having destroyed too much of the Earth, we will rise to a new, higher level.
“The pessimist sees difficulty in every opportunity. The optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.”
But to get there we must transform enormously powerful forces that seek to block the way."
The date specified in the calendar Winter Solstice in the year 2012 does not mark the end of the world.
Many outside people writing about the Mayan calendar sensationalize this date, but they do not know.
The ones who know are the indigenous elders who are entrusted with keeping the tradition.
Carlos tells us: "The economy now is a fiction.
“Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.”
The first five-year stretch of transition from August 1987 to August 1992 was the beginning of the destruction of the material world.
We have progressed ten years deeper into the transition phase by now, and many of the so-called sources of financial stability are in fact hollow.
The banks are weak. This is a delicate moment for them.
They could crash globally, if we don't pay attention.
Now, people are paying attention."
The North and South Poles are both breaking up.
The level of the water in the oceans is going to rise.
But at the same time land in the ocean, especially near Cuba, is also going to rise.
Carlos tells a story about the most recent Mayan New Year ceremonies in Guatemala.
He said that one respected Mam elder, who lives all year in a solitary mountain cave, journeyed to Chichicastenango to speak with the people at the ceremony.
The elder delivered a simple, direct message.
He called for human beings to come together in support of life and light.
"Right now each person and group is going his or her own way.
The elder of the mountains said there is hope if the people of the light can come together and unite in some way.
We live in a world of polarity -- day and night, man and woman, positive and negative. Light and darkness need each other.
They are a balance."
"Just now the dark side is very strong, and very clear about what they want.
They have their vision and their priorities clearly held, and also their hierarchy.
They are working in many ways so that we will be unable to connect with the spiral Fifth World in 2012."
"On the light side everyone thinks they are the most important, that their own understandings, or their group's understandings, are the key.
There's a diversity of cultures and opinions, so there is competition, diffusion, and no single focus."
Carlos believes the dark side works to block unity through denial and materialism.
It also works to destroy those who are working with the light to get the Earth to a higher level.
They like the energy of the old, declining Fourth World, the materialism.
They do not want it to change.
They do not want unity.
They want to stay at this level, and are afraid of the next level.
The dark power of the declining Fourth World cannot be destroyed or overpowered.
It's too strong and clear for that, and that is the wrong strategy.
The dark can only be transformed when confronted with simplicity and open-heartedness.
This is what leads to unity, a key concept for the World of the Fifth Sun.
Carlos said the emerging era of the Fifth Sun will call attention to a much-overlooked element.
Whereas the four traditional elements of Earth, Air, Fire and Water have dominated various epochs in the past, there will be a fifth element to reckon with in the time of the Fifth Sun --- that element is 'ETHER'.
The dictionary defines Ether as a "hypothetical substance supposed to occupy all space, postulated to account for the propagation of electromagnetic radiation through space." Perhaps it could be defined as the "space between space".
I would suggest it could be manifest as the alignment of charged particles from our solar system (Sun), and our galaxy (Milky Way) surge.
The Ether element represents spiritual energy.
"The element of the Fifth Sun is celestial. Within the context of Ether there can be a joining of the polarities.
No more darkness or light in the people, but an uplifted unity. But right now the realm of darkness is not interested in this.
They are organized to block it.
They seek to unbalance the Earth and its environment so we will be unready for the alignment in 2012."
"We need to work together for peace, and balance with the other side. We need to take care of the Earth that feeds and shelters us.
We need to put our entire mind and heart into pursuing unity and unity now, to confront the other side and preserve life."
"We are disturbed -- we can't play anymore.
Our planet can be renewed or ravaged. Now is the time to awaken and take action. Everyone is needed.
You are not here for no reason.
Everyone who is here now has an important purpose.
This is a hard but a special time.
We have the opportunity for growth, but we must be ready for this moment in history."
Carlos says: "The prophesied changes are going to happen, but our attitude and actions determine how harsh or mild they are.
We need to act, to make changes, and to elect people to represent us who understand and who will take political action to respect the Earth."
"Meditation and spiritual practice are good, but also action.
It's very important to be clear about who you are, and also about your relation to the Earth.
Develop yourself according to your own tradition and the call of your heart.
But remember to respect differences, and strive for unity.
Eat wisely --- a lot of food is corrupt in either subtle or gross ways.
Pay attention to what you are taking into your body.
Learn to preserve food, and to conserve energy.
Learn some good breathing techniques, so you have mastery of your breath.
Follow a tradition with great roots.
It is not important what tradition, your heart will tell you, but it must have great roots."
"We live in a world of energy.
An important task at this time is to learn to sense or see the energy of everyone and everything -- people, plants, animals.
This becomes increasingly important as we draw close to the World of the Fifth Sun, for it is associated with the element 'ether' -- the realm where energy lives and weaves.
Go to the sacred places of the Earth to pray for peace, and have respect for the Earth which gives us our food, clothing, and shelter.
We need to reactivate the energy of these sacred places. That is our work."
"One simple but effective prayer technique is to light white or baby-blue colored candles. Think of a moment in peace.
Speak your intention to the flame and send the light of it on to the leaders who have the power to make war or peace."
Carlos reminds us this is a crucially important moment for humanity and for Earth. Each person is important.
He said the elders have opened the doors so that other races can come to the Mayan world to receive the tradition.
"The Maya have long appreciated and respected that there are other colors, other races, and other spiritual systems.
They know that the destiny of the Mayan world is related to the destiny of the whole world."
"The greatest wisdom is in simplicity.
Love, respect, tolerance, sharing, gratitude, forgiveness.
It's not complex or elaborate.
The real knowledge is free.
It's encoded in your DNA.
All you need is within you.
Great teachers have said that from the beginning.
Find your heart, and you will find your way."
Most things you fear will never happen.
They are just monsters in your own mind.
And if they happen then they will most often not be as painful or bad as you expected.
Worrying is most often just a waste of time.

How the Newtown Massacre Became a Mind-Control Television Event
The anchor is not only the priest, but also the teacher. He/she shows the audience how to experience the event and what to feel and what to think and how to act.
With respect......nation states are too limited to be long tolerated in humanity's future.
A number of researchers have identified a schism within humanity and described it as a 'break-away civilization' emerging.
The 'break-away civilization' is defined as having humanity separated into two groups by a 60 years notional time, and perhaps a thousand years time in technology.
On one side of this divide is an elite cadre of self-selecting humans who have access to technology so powerful that it has made them capable of killing with impunity (so they believe) anywhere on earth at any time.
This group likely has access to technology that allows them to travel through out our solar system to some degree.
Further, they may soon (if not already) have access to the ability to muck about in time.
This group likely has daily contact with non-human intelligences in a relationship too complex to analyze from the available data/speculation.
On the other side side of this barrier are all us billions of regular humans trying to get by tough lives in tough conditions with the general level of technology currently available, and made incalculably worse by the hugely parasitic load of the church/gov't blood/life suckers.
Hidden within the parasitic blood suckers is a direct line that supports the 'break-away civilization' with our blood/sweat/tears.
The billions of regular humans are further hampered by the 'bloodline elite', and the fractured 'nation-state system'.
As all us regular humans are certainly aware, this 'blood sucking tick' on our collective back is extracting too much to long bear.
It is my contention that the nation-state is a central player in the formation of the break-away civilization, as it was the nationalistic military structure that originally formed the matrix by which this civilization came into being.
Further augmented in modern times by the rampaging, lawless, global corporation structure, the nascent break-away civilization began separating itself from the 'above ground' nation-state structure in the early 1950s.
It now exists entirely as a planetary collective (self organizing status is unknown) that is masked by the many layers of lying shit-for-brains people commonly, and collectively known as 'politicians'.
These minions of the break-away civilization are in control of the nation-states that gave birth to this group, and continue to support its growth by parasitism run rampant across the planet.
It is further my contention that this situation of the division of the species into these two, unequal groups, is untenable.
There are signs that the break-away civilization leadership is aware of the vulnerability caused by the current state of separation, and is accelerating their push for some form of solution.
From the point of view of the regular humans on the planet, the 'solution' being developed by the break-away civilization looks a whole lot like the NWO.
If someone does not do something, there are going to be very large problems due to the inability of regular humans to accept the NWO image of our future.
The break-away civilization fellows also know that resistance to NWO is/will be fierce.
They continue to encounter it in unexpected places where their every failure to progress actually drags them further back.
As an instance, the harder TPTB (proxies for break-away civilization) push on gun control in the USA, the more guns are sold.
The more they demonize 'home schooling', the more parents start doing just that....and so it goes.
Not very much to the liking of these break-away guys.
No real progress in moving us masses toward their goal of (I am guessing here) willing acceptance of slave status.
So they, the break-away guys, have been killing humans.
Mostly in ones and twos....that kind of thing, getting rid of the really annoying fellows.
Lots of scientists/researchers who just keep getting a bit too close to their reality, and in the limited understanding of the break-away guys (remember they are lacking a whole lot - hugs from mama, home cooked meals, pies, a species in which to belong), the approach has been to eliminate problems by killing off people.
Some of the aware population of the planet of regular humans started noticing the whole 'dead scientist' pattern a few years back, and that put even more pressure on the break-away guys.
And so it goes to the point that we have now reached where the whole planet is undergoing changes that are kicking both groups collective butts, while the 'gap' between the two hardens with time, and cumulative emotions.
In some regards, this current situation is a meta-level, planetary expression of the dynamics that had been engineered into so many nation-states over the previous century, e.g. Germany, Viet Nam, Korea.
Unlike the issues that affected nations split by geopolitical forces, our current problem has no readily available conduit for a solution.
This is because the problem is truly planetary, or species wide, and therefore is above the 'pay level' of nation-states.
In fact, it is above even the hated NWO vehicle of the UN (United Nations), as nations, united or not, are still nations, and thus restricted in their 'legal authority' outside their borders.
It is this aspect of USA behavior with its military that clearly paints our nation as a prime supporter of the break-away civilization.
However, the break-away civilization is, apparently, no longer dependent on any single nation-state, and is actually a global, or planetary sub set of the species as a whole.
While most of the billions of regular humans on the 'down side' of the 60/1000 year technology gap are loyal to their nation-state, or at least dominated by it, the solution for all of humanity must be larger than the nations that created it.
No nation-state can negotiate on behalf of humanity with the break-away civilization as it would instantly, and always be perceived as a case of domination by the particular nation involved.
It does not matter if it is China, Russia, USA, or Tonga, they would all be perceived by every other nation state (especially the personally paranoid politicians who run them) as being 'out for themselves'.
So it ain't gonna happen that way, the 'reconciliation, and reintegration' I mean.
And this form of 'r&r' must occur.
Not only is our planet in upheaval, and all hands are required at humanity level for survival, but the separation is wounding us both.
This wounding is bidirectional at many levels, and it seems (from some linguistic clues) that the masters of the break-away civilization have at last become aware of their own degradation being induced by this unstable, and yet, unbreachable, precarious situation.
Therefore it is my proposal that the World Government of World Citizens, which is de facto, and de jure above the nation-state system of the world, form a commission with the expressed mandate to explore ways and means of effectively communicating with the break-away civilization such that reconciliation and reintegration may be approached for the mutual benefit of the species here on earth including humans, individually, and collectively.
The reason that I propose that this commission be formed poste haste has to do with the other problem too big for nation-states, and that is what ever the hell it is that has the break-away civilization so scared of the next few years
(read this as 'nasty blood sucking slobbering space aliens coming here' I betcha).
To my old, and admittedly addled brain, better we should face the 'what ever the hell/space aliens' as unified adult members of a (gasp!) adult species.....it just may work out a bit nicer that way.
Transparency derives its power from our collective billions of eyes, so feel free to stare.
Welcome world citizens, de facto, and/or declared.
The Fiscal Cliff Is A Diversion: The Derivatives Tsunami and the Dollar Bubble
December 17, 2012 |
www.paulcraigroberts.orgthe fiscal cliff is a diversion the derivatives tsunami and the dollar bubble,
The “fiscal cliff” is another hoax designed to shift the attention of policymakers, the media, and the attentive public, if any, from huge problems to small ones.
The fiscal cliff is automatic spending cuts and tax increases in order to reduce the deficit by an insignificant amount over ten years if Congress takes no action itself to cut spending and to raise taxes.
In other words, the “fiscal cliff” is going to happen either way.
The problem from the standpoint of conventional economics with the fiscal cliff is that it amounts to a double-barrel dose of austerity delivered to a faltering and recessionary economy.
Ever since John Maynard Keynes, most economists have understood that austerity is not the answer to recession or depression.
Regardless, the fiscal cliff is about small numbers compared to the Derivatives Tsunami or to bond market and dollar market bubbles.
The fiscal cliff requires that the federal government cut spending by $1.3 trillion over ten years. The Guardian reports that means the federal deficit has to be reduced about $109 billion per year or 3 percent of the current budget. http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2012/nov/27/fiscal-cliff-explained-spending-cuts-tax-hikes
More simply, just divide $1.3 trillion by ten and it comes to $130 billion per year.
This can be done by simply taking a three month vacation each year from Washington’s wars.
The Derivatives Tsunami and the bond and dollar bubbles are of a different magnitude.
Last June 5 in “Collapse At Hand” http://www.paulcraigroberts.org/2012/06/05/collapse-at-hand/ I pointed out that according to the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency’s fourth quarter report for 2011, about 95% of the $230 trillion in US derivative exposure was held by four US financial institutions: JP Morgan Chase Bank, Bank of America, Citibank, and Goldman Sachs.
Prior to financial deregulation, essentially the repeal of the Glass-Steagall Act and the non-regulation of derivatives–a joint achievement of the Clinton administration and the Republican Party–Chase, Bank of America, and Citibank were commercial banks that took depositors’ deposits and made loans to businesses and consumers and purchased Treasury bonds with any extra reserves.
With the repeal of Glass-Steagall these honest commercial banks became gambling casinos, like the investment bank, Goldman Sachs, betting not only their own money but also depositors money on uncovered bets on interest rates, currency exchange rates, mortgages, and prices of commodities and equities.
These bets soon exceeded many times not only US GDP but world GDP. Indeed, the gambling bets of JP Morgan Chase Bank alone are equal to world Gross Domestic Product.
According to the first quarter 2012 report from the Comptroller of the Currency, total derivative exposure of US banks has fallen insignificantly from the previous quarter to $227 trillion.
The exposure of the 4 US banks accounts for almost of all of the exposure and is many multiples of their assets or of their risk capital.
The Derivatives Tsunami is the result of the handful of fools and corrupt public officials who deregulated the US financial system.
Today merely four US banks have derivative exposure equal to 3.3 times world Gross Domestic Product.
When I was a US Treasury official, such a possibility would have been considered beyond science fiction.
Hopefully, much of the derivative exposure somehow nets out so that the net exposure, while still larger than many countries’ GDPs, is not in the hundreds of trillions of dollars.
Still, the situation is so worrying to the Federal Reserve that after announcing a third round of quantitative easing, that is, printing money to buy bonds–both US Treasuries and the banks’ bad assets–the Fed has just announced that it is doubling its QE 3 purchases.
In other words, the entire economic policy of the United States is dedicated to saving four banks that are too large to fail. The banks are too large to fail only because deregulation permitted financial concentration, as if the Anti-Trust Act did not exist.
The purpose of QE is to keep the prices of debt, which supports the banks’ bets, high. The Federal Reserve claims that the purpose of its massive monetization of debt is to help the economy with low interest rates and increased home sales.
But the Fed’s policy is hurting the economy by depriving savers, especially the retired, of interest income, forcing them to draw down their savings.
Real interest rates paid on CDs, money market funds, and bonds are lower than the rate of inflation.
Moreover, the money that the Fed is creating in order to bail out the four banks is making holders of dollars, both at home and abroad, nervous.
If investors desert the dollar and its exchange value falls, the price of the financial instruments that the Fed’s purchases are supporting will also fall, and interest rates will rise.
The only way the Fed could support the dollar would be to raise interest rates. In that event, bond holders would be wiped out, and the interest charges on the government’s debt would explode.
With such a catastrophe following the previous stock and real estate collapses, the remains of people’s wealth would be wiped out. Investors have been deserting equities for “safe” US Treasuries. This is why the Fed can keep bond prices so high that the real interest rate is negative.
The hyped threat of the fiscal cliff is immaterial compared to the threat of the derivatives overhang and the threat to the US dollar and bond market of the Federal Reserve’s commitment to save four US banks.
Once again, the media and its master, the US government, hide the real issues behind a fake one. The fiscal cliff has become the way for the Republicans to save the country from bankruptcy by destroying the social safety net put in place during the 1930s, supplemented by Lyndon Johnson’s “Great Society” in the mid-1960s.
Now that there are no jobs, now that real family incomes have been stagnant or declining for decades, and now that wealth and income have been concentrated in few hands is the time, Republicans say, to destroy the social safety net so that we don’t fall over the fiscal cliff.
In human history, such a policy usually produces revolt and revolution, which is what the US so desperately needs.
Perhaps our stupid and corrupt policymakers are doing us a favor after all.
Ya never know??
Gold is the money of kings, silver is the money of gentlemen, barter is the money of peasants - but debt is the money of slaves =============================
$230 trillion in US derivative exposure was held by four US financial institutions: JP Morgan Chase Bank, Bank of America, Citibank, and Goldman Sachs.
