DNA Results for Paracas Skulls Confirm Alien Genetics





Let me make this simple.  mtNA mutations are almost impossible.  In our human primate family there is about one or so.  The heavy changes take place outside the mitochondria.   Thus major variations establishes that we are dealing with a truly alien DNA.

Of course that is all obvious from the physical evidence alone but we always will face moronic deniers who will waltz in tenuous lines of logic to attempt to throw doubt in order to impress the ignorant.


Why this is incredibly important is that these skulls and the Starchild skull provides us with plausibly two separate alien genomes.  This can be  mapped and we suddenly have a Rosetta stone able to help us actually map our own DNA accurately.  This will ultimately a gold mine for medical and biological research.

It is also noteworthy and generally unremarked that carbon nanotube or their equivalent were found embedded in the skull as ac strengthening technology.  None of this is biological.  Large skulls need high quality protection.

DNA RESULTS FOR THE NEPHILIM SKULLS IN PERU ARE IN AND THE RESULTS ARE ABSOLUTELY SHOCKING

MAY 7, 2017

http://undergroundscience.net/genealogy/dna-results-for-the-nephilim-skulls-in-peru-are-in-and-the-results-are-absolutely-shocking/


How can we explain elongated skulls that are thousands of years old that contain genetic material “unknown in any human, primate or animal known so far”? For months, many of us have been eagerly awaiting the results of the first DNA tests to ever be performed on the famous Paracas skulls. The results for one of the skulls are now in, and the scientist that did the testing is declaring that this skull represents a “new human-like creature” unlike anything that has ever been discovered before. So are these actually Nephilim skulls? Do they come from a time when the world more closely resembled “the Lord of the Rings” than most people living today would ever dare to imagine? There are those who believe that extremely bizarre hybrid races once roamed the planet. With each passing year, the scientific evidence continues to pile up on the side of those that are convinced that the Nephilim actually lived among us. As the knowledge of this evidence becomes more widespread, what is that going to do to the commonly accepted version of history that all of us have been taught?


If you are not familiar with the Paracas skulls, the following is a pretty good summary from a recent article by April Holloway


Paracas is a desert peninsula located within the Pisco Province in the Inca Region, on the south coast of Peru. It is here were Peruvian archaeologist, Julio Tello, made an amazing discovery in 1928 – a massive and elaborate graveyard containing tombs filled with the remains of individuals with the largest elongated skulls found anywhere in the world. These have come to be known as the ‘Paracas skulls’. In total, Tello found more than 300 of these elongated skulls, which are believed to date back around 3,000 years. A DNA analysis has now been conducted on one of the skulls and expert Brien Foerster has released preliminary information regarding these enigmatic skulls.


As Holloway noted, it is researcher Brien Foerster that has been leading the charge in reviving interest in these elongated skulls. Now that the DNA results are in, interest in these skulls is almost certainly going to skyrocket. The following quote from the geneticist that conducted the DNA analysis comes from Brien Foerster’s Facebook page. Please keep in mind that this geneticist was not told the history of these skulls in advance. So he was able to examine them without any preconceived notions. What he found was absolutely shocking…


Whatever the sample labeled 3A has came from – it had mtDNA with mutations unknown in any human, primate or animal known so far. The data is very sketchy though and a LOT of sequencing still needs to be done to recover the complete mtDNA sequence. But a few fragments I was able to sequence from this sample 3A indicate that if these mutations will hold we are dealing with a new human-like creature, very distant from Homo sapiens, Neanderthals and Denisovans.


As I have written about previously, forensic analysis of these skulls show that they were not deformed by “cradle-boarding”. There are many examples of skulls that have been “cradle-boarded” down in South America, but the skulls that Foerster has been investigating are much different from those skulls. The following is more from April Holloway about these skulls…


The cranial volume is up to 25 percent larger and 60 percent heavier than conventional human skulls, meaning they could not have been intentionally deformed through head binding/flattening. They also contain only one parietal plate, rather than two. The fact that the skulls’ features are not the result of cranial deformation means that the cause of the elongation is a mystery, and has been for decades.


In fact, in a previous article I discussed how a sample of red hair from one of these skulls was sent to a lab to be analyzed. The tests on that sample of hair also showed that these skulls are not human.


Or at least they are not fully human.


So can we conclusively say that these are Nephilim skulls?


Of course many researchers are extremely excited about these findings, but they are warning everyone to stay cautious. For example, consider what L.A. Marzulli is saying about these skulls…


Our Geneticist has had his mind blown as the email indicates, but we must be cautious with our conclusions until all the evidence can be examined.


With that in mind, take a good look at the two skulls in the picture above. I took this photo when I returned to the Chongos Necropolis a few weeks ago. The skull on the left shows only one parietal plate and a complete absence of a parietal suture. Is this a genetic trait that is only found in the Paracas skulls? If so, what does it signify?


Chongos is one of the most enigmatic places I have ever found myself in. On this visit to the area we were accompanied by the mayor and an armed escort! Chongos is where the sample for the DNA testing and the subsequent results I posted above, has come from.


Are these really Nephilim skulls? In my opinion, the evidence is beginning to stack up in that direction, but we must be cautious and patient for all the evidence to come in.


You can find the photo that he was talking about right here.


And for much more on the DNA test results, I have posted a video interview with Brien Foerster below…

And you can find another video interview with Foerster right here.

Of course this is not the first time that a very bizarre skull has been tested.

In a previous article, I discussed how DNA testing of the Starchild skull showed that it was not human.

So who were all of these extremely bizarre human-like creatures that were roaming around on our planet just a few thousand years ago?


Could it be possible that they were actually the Nephilim or their descendents?

 In this item we are quickly led to a deeper understanding of the nature of emotional disease.  In the west it is often recognized but not treated.  Athabasca is now changing all that.
 
 
In fairness, the answers are out there for all our brain problems, but we lack the established practice yet. Worse we have a medical infrastructure gamed to oppose those answers not formally commercialized.
 
Think.  Where i to heal all who came to me with a laying on of hands, i would be tossed in prison for practicing medicine..

Medical Doctor's Exploration into Traditional Amazonian Plant Medicine
 

It is with much pleasure that we welcome our AoM for May, Dr. Joe Tafur, with The Fellowship of the River: A Medical Doctor’s Exploration Into Traditional Plant Medicine.


Dr. Tafur bridges modern western medical understanding with the profound world of shamanic healing, drawing on empirical evidence he collected while in the Amazon.


“Dr. Tafur’s timely book takes us on an enchanted adventure through the emerging world of Amazonian shamanism. All along the way, he engages the reader with personal stories that illuminate his exciting and evolving philosophy of medicine and healing.”


– Andrew Weil, MD, bestselling author of Spontaneous Healing and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health


Have you ever gone to the doctor for something you were concerned about, and then been told “everything’s fine, it’s all in your head”? Well, sometimes it is all just in your head, and other times, it’s something more. I remember going to the doctor when I was in medical school. I hadn’t been feeling well and had some rather vague, subjective complaints. Most of all, I was worried about my breathing, my lungs felt stiff, and I couldn’t take a deep breath. The doctor examined me, then ordered a chest x-ray and a few labs. Objectively, everything turned out to be within normal limits. He told me that I had “medical school syndrome” and not to worry too much about it. Although this was somewhat comforting to hear, I didn’t feel any better. My problem was beyond the scope of blood tests and x-rays. I was soul sick, spiritually ill. In our brief visit, the doctor didn’t ask me too many questions about how I felt inside, in my heart. I can’t blame him. Most likely, he wasn’t trained to consider those things.


I should know, I’m a medical doctor. But first, I am a living human being, and as it turns out my breathing problems were related to my mental health. I was depressed in medical school. To get better, I would need to venture outside the confines of established medical care. I needed spiritual healing. Sacramental plant medicine helped me to find what I was looking for and opened my eyes to the power of spiritual medicine.


In my new book, The Fellowship of the River: A Medical Doctor’s Exploration into Traditional Amazonian Plant Medicine, I share the story of my journey: from my struggles in medical school, to peyote ceremony in Arizona, to ayahuasca healing in the Peruvian Amazon, to training in ayahuasca shamanism. Through a series of stories, I share some of what I learned in my years of experience at the traditional healing center Nihue Rao Centro Espiritual.


During my time in the Amazon, I witnessed hundreds of Westerners, primarily from North America and Europe, benefit from traditional treatment with shamanic plant medicine, the course of their lives altered by powerful visions and shifted perceptions. In my book, I share some of their healing stories, demonstrating how shamanic plant medicine and related spiritual techniques can help to heal many modern maladies and diseases—from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) to chronic cough to Crohn’s disease to anxiety and depression to a number of other psychosomatic conditions.


In the United States, as a physician, I have watched people spend years in frustration seeking treatment for these very same problems and related ailments. Despite spending thousands of dollars and consulting an army of specialists, many do not get to the root of their problem. Too often, the Western medical approach fails to address the emotional and spiritual dimensions of these chronic diseases and related illnesses, seeing them only as physical conditions. Shamanic plant medicine heals by going deeper into the emotional and spiritual realms; like other forms of spiritual healing, it works by altering our consciousness. As suggested by author Stephen Buhner, the mind is opened beyond the illusory limits of its current operating software. The mind is opened to the heart and to the energies that disturb our emotional being.


Ayahuasca, as you may be aware, is a sacred plant medicine of the Amazon rainforest. Although it is not a panacea, modern clinical research has verified ayahuasca’s anti-depressive, anxiolytic and anti-addictive properties. Our growing body of knowledge in the fields of mind-body medicine, psychedelic medicine and epigenetics is helping us to understand how this spiritual plant medicine promotes such healing.


For millennia, traditional medical philosophies like shamanism have described the presence of an “emotional body,” through which we experience emotion and feeling. Modern science has also encountered this emotional body and is now able to describe its anatomy, a complex network that connects our psychology, our nervous system, our endocrine system, and our immune system (the psychoneuroendocrine immunologic network – the PNEI Network). Emotional trauma and “spiritual wounds” impair this network and, in turn, compromise health.


The emotional body (the PNEI network) helps to bridge mind and body. Unresolved emotional trauma is stored within this network and, there, disturbs mental and physical function. Such disturbances manifest in a variety of problems, ranging from mental health illness to some forms of inflammatory disease. In the book, I share the story of Russ, a Vietnam Veteran, who had been suffering with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) for decades. After years of psychiatric medication and therapy, multiple elements of Russ’s emotional body (PNEI network) were still disturbed. PTSD sufferers struggle with bouts of fear and anxiety (Psychologically), an over reactive fight-or-flight response (in the Nervous system), abnormal adrenaline and cortisol levels (in the hormonal/Endocrine system), and out-of-control inflammation (in the Immune system). After treatment with Traditional Amazonian Plant Medicine and ayahuasca shamanism, Russ improved dramatically, physically and mentally. He no longer needed his prior psychiatric medication. Once back home, he continued his work, mending past relationships and healing his past. Years later, he continues to thrive.


The shamans have long known that when the emotional body is sick, the physical body cannot get well. Shamanic plant medicine gives us access to the mystical realms of the spirit, where we can find and heal these deeper wounds and release emotional burdens. Thus, emotional health returns and along with it our innate ability to heal mind and body. In chronic diseases in which the emotional body is ill, lasting healing will not be achieved until we address the needs of the heart and soul.


From the traditional shamans, I learned that spiritual healing works, in part, by cleansing traumatic energies from our past. As my training progressed, it became clear that this mystical work encouraged emotional healing. This emotional healing often led to notable changes in the mind and body. As a doctor, I wanted to understand how mystical techniques could alter the emotional body, the PNEI network.


I theorize that shamanic healing works through the emotional body, altering biochemical imprints in the PNEI network. Maladaptive emotional memories and imprints accumulate within the emotional body, contributing to emotionally-rooted disease. At the cellular level, this happens within the epigenetics, where external or environmental factors switch genes on and off and affect how genes are expressed. Our emotional experiences affect our epigenetics and in turn the way our genes are expressed. Altering epigenetics through emotional healing allows for physiologic change in the brain and body.


Shamanic approaches interact with the emotional body energetically. In this way, shamanic approaches help to heal dysfunction in the emotional body, by helping to clear maladaptive emotional imprints from our epigenetics. In The Fellowship of the River, I explain these theories further, through healing stories. In the presented cases, I demonstrate how spiritual healing techniques can generate physical improvements even in physical symptoms associated with migraine headaches, psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease.


Spiritual well-being is reflected in emotional health. Shamanism meets allopathic medicine in the process of emotional healing. I learned this studying in the rainforest with traditional healers. Join me on a trip down the Amazon, and I’ll show you what I mean.

The Cheese of the Vikings



I add this description of how to eat it first.  Black rye bread should also work as well as the crackers.   Otherwise just eating it is a challenge.  I happen to enjoy the more commonly available Norwegian goats milk cheese which also needs to be cut very thin and eaten on a cracker is best.  So this practice is something that i can relate to.

However using it to flavor butter is a great idea.

still it may well be an acquired taste.


 
Actually, this cheese is quite tasty when eaten right. On a visit to Lofthus, Norway to revisit the church and hotel where my wife and I were married in 2002 a Norwegian couple at the next table introduced me to it. They explained that you put a slice on a cracker and smear it with a dob of butter---then eat it. The butter adds taste, and most importantly, moisture to the cheese. Eaten this way it was very good. They did admit it was not that popular even in Norway and that I was the first foreigner they had met who liked it. I continued eating some after dinner for the rest of our stay and loved it! Trying to find it here in the USA!


The Cheese of the Vikings: A Long Tradition Lives on at a Single Dairy in Norway 

In a small town on the Sognefjord, expert cheesemakers are continuing a tradition that’s believed to date back more than a thousand years. The village of Vik, population 3,100, is home to the world’s only dairy producing Gamalost – literally “old cheese.”

A pungent, golden-brown cheese with a crusty texture and a strong flavor, Gamalost is known for its health-promoting characteristics. Made from skimmed cow’s milk with no other ingredients added, Gamalost contains more than 50 percent protein and just 1 percent fat. It also contains chitosan, a substance that has many beneficial properties, including lowering cholesterol. The Vikings, who fueled themselves for their expeditions in part by eating Gamalost, also considered the cheese an aphrodisiac.

Gamalost was once a staple of the Norwegian diet, in large part because it could be stored for long periods of time without refrigeration. But because of the difficult production process, the tradition of making it now lives on only at the TINE dairy in Vik, which produces about 150 to 200 tons of Gamalost per year and has also developed a spreadable version. Norwegian authorities have even granted the brand Gamalost frå Vik special protected status because of its importance as a piece of the country’s cultural heritage.

 

Although the tradition of making Gamalost is an old one, the name of the cheese comes not from its long history but from the length of the aging process. Traditionally, after the milk had been soured, the curds were heated in copper cauldrons, and then transferred to wooden moulds lined with jute or linen. After a few days the cheese was wrapped in dried marsh grass in preparation for aging. Every other day during the maturation process, the cheese had to be rubbed by hand to faciliate the absorption of the necessary bacteria.

These days, modern dairy production methods have reduced the aging process from an entire summer to 12 to 14 days. Still, the principles of making Gamalost remain the same, with much of the work done by hand to obtain the best quality and aroma.

Its health benefits notwithstanding, Gamalost is not to everyone’s taste. The cheese continues to mature after production, so its strong flavor and aroma intensify over time. Just the mention of Gamalost will cause many people to wrinkle their noses. But served the way the connoisseurs eat it — on a slice of bread with a dollop of jam, honey, clotted cream, or maple syrup — it’s really quite tasty. Some Norwegians even marinade Gamalost in port, sherry, brandy, or aquavit.

If you’re traveling in the Sognefjord region and want to learn more about Gamalost (and maybe even brave a taste), stop by the café at the TINE dairy, just a block or so up the hill from the passenger boat dock in Vik.

Gamalost even has its own festival, which takes place in Vik over several days in late May or early June.

Kolbrin - Book of Scrolls - Chpt 3 - Sacred Registers Part 3




This is the ongoing service honoring the deceased and now recognizing his inheritor.  Quite dramatic and seriously consistent and providing real comfort as the reality of the afterlife is understood by all. 

This whole tradition has been completely lost, but clearly has real validity and could well be adopted again with good conscience.  Of course it was lost and even suppressed with the destruction of the Alexandrian library which explains why so much is intact here.  The Kolbrin material was actively maintained there until around the fifth century AD.

Thus migration to Glastonbury is very credible. We are talking of a few centuries of monks maintaining a tradition and protecting it from mere archiving as would be expected from the Vatican....  .


CHAPTER THREE

THE SACRED REGISTERS - PART 3



Behold, one comes wearing white sandals and clad in fine linen. Arise, stand up to greet him. He bears the staff of righteousness. He brings a pearl of priceless value, take it and become perfect.

Others come, fair women and young children. His father's heir has come and the four great ones who bear sweet waters, who spread the feast and rejoice under the strong arm of their protector. He who has gone is not forgotten, but this is the day of the living.

He who has inherited ceases from weeping and begins to smile, the protecting one comes in peace. The heart in the sky is no longer small, it expands, it grows large. Thus it is also with the heart of he who lives, his days of lamentations are over and his heart swells and grows large.

The good son never ceases from faithful service on behalf of the absent one who has escaped from the confinement of the body. The dutiful son now calls upon the absent one for protection from wandering shadows and fi-om the molestations of life Shadows.

O Bountiful, Ever Considerate One, hear the words of your faithful and dutiful son, as they ascend with the blue, penetrating smoke of fragrant incense. Let no shadow wander from your safe abode to haunt our habitations, for they who dwell therein have done you no dishonour. Safeguard the Dark Doorway, that things in vile forms come not near us to pollute our bodies with sickness and disease.

You left, and before the waters rose again the man of Shodu, he who dealt harshly with the widow dwelling beside the channel of black stones, departed for his judgement. Is not he whom you judged, and did you not deal rightly with him when the scales went down against him? Therefore, might he not return from the Region of Darkness with others of his kind and cause misfortune to fall upon us? You he cannot harm, you are now in the Place of Glory, in the land beyond theWestera waters. Therefore, send us guardians from among the Glorious Company, that they may spread protecting wings over our habitations.

Many come, bearing cakes of fine meal and barley cakes, large, fat-bodied fish and meats of many kinds, honeywine in jars and fruits in plenty. He who is absent from the feast is joyful.his arm is strong and he issues his commands to the guardians. Cast off all gloom and be joyful, for this is not the time of sorrow, and tears have no place in your eyes.

If there be benevolent Life Shadows beyond the protective pale, they may enter. Join with us in our rejoicing. Let us all enjoy what we have and what we share, for life is irrepressible.


These are things from a foreign place said for our brother Gwelm, according to the rites of the Sons of Fire, and thus it shall be for those who enter the chambers of stone.

The Media Blackout On The DNC Lawsuit Proves That It Is Nuclear

















 What we need to comprehend is that the electorate can coalesce around a candidate and that they are no longer trusting the sad saps that have head office approval.  That Trump was able to utterly rout the entire collection thrown at him should be a major warning

That it took criminal collusion to derail the upstart Saunders is no surprise either.  That neither Trump or Saunders is my first choice for President either is no matter.  They were the ones to stick their hands up to lead the revolution. 

Obviously the voters will no longer support a sham candidate.  This gives the parties a serious problem that is largely out of their control.  Worse, the voters are becoming surely.  They tasted blood with the Dems and they got blood with the GOP.

So this battle is not over and the litigation to fix it is underway..



The Media Blackout On The DNC Lawsuit Proves That It Is Nuclear

https://medium.com/@caityjohnstone/the-media-blackout-on-the-dnc-lawsuit-proves-that-it-is-nuclear-32305f574f6e


I had the privilege of interviewing my newest personal hero yesterday, attorney Elizabeth Lee Beck, about her legal team’s fraud case against the Democratic National Committee. One of the many useful insights that this straight-shooting mom on fire brought to light during our conversation was her story about a time she reached out to New York Times reporter Michael Barbaro to get some help cracking through the deep, dark media blackout on this extremely important case. Barbaro had previously interviewed Beck and featured her in a front-page story not long ago, so she had every reason to try and contact him. What happened next?



“The little piss head blocks me,” Beck said.


Why is a journalist for the New York Times blocking a potential source from contacting him? Why is the mainstream media refusing to go anywhere near a legal case that has heavy implications for the future of American democracy? You already know the answer to this deep down, whether you’re the kind of person who turns and faces reality or the kind of person who dissociates from reality at all costs while watching Samantha Bee and chugging cough syrup on the sofa. The function of the mass media is not to inform the American public of important things that are happening in their country, it is to turn attention away from the important things that are happening in their country and to keep them sleepy and compliant. The DNC lawsuit is one of the greatest threats to America’s power establishment right now, but only if people know about it. If the corporate media were to advance this story with even a fraction of the intensity that they’re advancing their xenophobic anti-Russia nonsense, they’d start waking up the sleeping masses to the fact that there is nothing resembling democracy happening in America at all.


And the DNC’s own lawyers have indeed made it abundantly clear to anyone who’s been listening that there is no democracy in America. You cannot make the case that you are not required to provide real primary elections in a rigidly-enforced two-party system and still say that democracy is happening to any extent within your nation. Being forced to choose between two establishment-selected corporatists is not democracy, and this revolutionary lawsuit has been showing in no uncertain terms that this is exactly what is happening both in practice and in theory. In order to say that there is any sort of democratic process in America at all, there would have to either be a way to run viable independent and third-party candidates, or the people would have to be able to determine who the candidates will be for the two parties that they are permitted to choose from. Currently neither of those things is happening.


The American people have no say whatsoever in what happens to their country, and what are the extremely powerful media conglomerates choosing to cover today? Why, they’re babbling about Trump’s “war on the press”, of course. “The First Amendment!” they all squeal, rallying their consumers to their side. “He’s attacking freedom of the press!”


Contrary to what they would have us all believe, these corporate media giants are not “the press”. They are a part of the press, and enjoy First Amendment protections for that reason, but they are not the press. The press also includes smaller outlets, alternative media, and all the bloggers and Youtubers who produce infinitely superior news coverage to anything the mass media propaganda machine is cranking out, yet are forbidden to ever take part in White House press conferences. While these thin-skinned megacorporations are crying about Trump’s latest tweet, those of us in the alternative media are trying to direct the American people’s attention to a lawsuit that presents a very real opening for the possibility of some semblance of actual democracy in the future.


Just as it became evident that Trump had been fully digested by America’s unelected power establishment when the mass media pundits stopped calling him a Russian spy and started cheering his missile strikes in Syria last month, it is evident by the mass media’s refusal to cover the DNC lawsuit that it poses an existential threat to that same unelected power establishment. Remember, the motion-to-dismiss on the grounds that the DNC is under no obligation to provide real party primaries was the DNC’s first line of defense. That politically disastrous public position was their Plan A. If the lawsuit commences, can you imagine how bad their Plan B’s going to be? Can you imagine the spectacle of Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazile being forced to explain how their many, many, many transgressions were not a blatant violation of the Impartiality Clause in the DNC Charter? Can you imagine DNC Chair Tom Perez dithering out an explanation to a skilled prosecutor as to how democracy can be said to exist in a strict two-party system where one of the parties actively sabotages the will of the people?


The DNC committed fraud, as sure as a soda company that adds sugar to its “sugar free” drinks commits fraud. It’s okay for a company to put sugar in its drinks, but you’ll have to change the “sugar free” label before you try to sell it, or you’ll be sued for fraud. The Impartiality Clause of the DNC Charter is the “sugar free” label, and what it actually sold its consumers put them into a diabetic coma. The Impartiality Clause, also known as Article 5, Section 4 of the DNC Charter, reads as follows:“the Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.”


There is simply no way that anyone who has read through the conversations in the more egregious DNC leaks, the Podesta emails showing that the DNC and the Clinton camp were colluding as early as 2014 to schedule debates and primaries in a way that favored her, or then-DNC Vice Chairwoman Donna Brazile acting as a mole against the Sanders campaign and passing Clinton questions in advance to prep her for debates with Sanders can truthfully say that this Impartiality Clause was adhered to. It wasn’t.

They put a label on their product which was not the product they were selling. If this case moves forward (and there is no valid reason why it should not), the propaganda machine will be forced out of media blackout mode and into full-fledged damage control. If the case is dismissed, the American people will be shown clearly that their nation’s power establishment has no intention of ever giving them the ability to vote for what they want in any meaningful way, because we clear-eyed rebels will have been given hard, undeniable evidence to prove this to them.

Interview with Elizabeth Lee Beck

The DNC didn’t just sabotage Bernie Sanders, the DNC sabotaged you. Millions and millions of Americans decided to lift up an uncharismatic, disheveled-looking Senator from Vermont and carry him toward the White House completely unassisted by establishment media or corporate funding. Sanders never said or did anything new on the primary campaign trail; he just kept saying the same exact things he’s been saying for decades about economic justice and the need for drastic reform. Sanders wasn’t the real revolution in the last election cycle, you were. That organic populist uprising was what the establishment was afraid of, and that’s precisely what they sabotaged with their loyalists in the DNC. They sabotaged you. They subverted your will. It was you they were interested in breaking, not Sanders. On his own Bernie posed very little threat to them in the grand scheme of things, but a grassroots insurgency of people acting out their own will independent of the propaganda machine had them soiling their suits.

And now their media mouthpieces are refusing to tell that story, so guess what? We’re gonna have to tell it ourselves. That same grassroots insurgency that we all took part in last year, in which we moved mountains and terrified the oligarchs without any help from establishment institutions, we can do that again. Keep hammering away on social media and alternative media about this DNC fraud case. Do not let it fade from memory, do not let it slip away from the spotlight, because it is where your oppressors are most vulnerable right now. Keep attacking. This lawsuit is one of the most significant anti-establishment phenomena happening in America today, and the more life you give it, the more power it will have.

Robot fruit pickers to put migrant agricultural laborers out of wor




What an excellent idea. However, before we get too carried away i suggest that the charge out rates match minimum wages with a properly measured distribution for piecework. Paying m8inimum wages against the the top performer is nonsense, but against the average quite reasonable. There has to be built in motivation and that should do it.  What i am saying is that i want all migrant laboprers to be fairly treated to completely eliminate gaming thesystem.

What needs to be understood is that whatever is here regulated will be passed on to the consumer including labor fairness.  Again import protection also needs to be in place to block advantageous dumping.  As you can see, this whole sector has been a sore spot in our agricultural economy for a long time.  It does need real reform matching wage and general income reforms.  Otherwise it becomes the discounting base that drives out local workers who cannot seriously compete.

And do recall that families can do work arounds and will to get the work.  I saw the whole professional office cleaning industry transform because of just that.  For a family, minimum wage happens to be a book entry.

Natural News) Some of the biggest fruit orchards in the U.S. may soon use robots in harvesting fruits, as two robotics firms are currently developing machines that could accelerate fruit picking. Mechanical harvesting has become a staple practice in many farms for crops such as wheat, corn, green beans, tomatoes and others. However, the harvesting of fragile, easily-perishable crops — such as apples, berries, table grapes and lettuce — are still done through manual labor. Fruit orchards in Washington state alone require thousands of farm workers to do the harvesting.

Israel-based FFRobotics noted that human pickers are getting scarce, with many young people shying away from farm work. The firm also stressed that elderly pickers are slowly retiring. In line with this, the company is currently working on a machine with three-fingered grips designed to grab fruit and twist or clip it from a branch. According to company co-founder Gad Kober, the machine will feature between four and 12 robotic arms, and can harvest as many as 10,000 apples an hour. The machine would also be able to harvest 85 to 90 percent of the crop off trees. The remaining crops could then be manually harvested by workers, Kober noted. On the other hand, California-based Abundant Robotics is developing a machine that makes use of suction technology to vacuum apples off trees. Plans for machine production were discussed in February at an international convention of fruit growers. The company aims to launch the robotic harvesters in the market before 2019.

The two robotics companies are likely to achieve their production targets, with both prototypes projected to be released this fall, according to Karen Lewis. Lewis is a Washington State University cooperative extension agent who assessed the use of robotics in fruit orchards. Lewis also noted that while the machines will serve as game changers in harvesting, fruit orchards across the country may be required to cultivate fruits in new trellis systems to allow the machines to see and harvest the crops.

Experts raise flags on potential losses in migrant laborers

Despite the agricultural advances, the announcement did not sit well with many agricultural experts. According to experts, robot pickers will negatively impact the livelihood of farm workers especially the migrant labor sector, many of whom have been illegally working in the U.S. An analysis by the Pew Research Center revealed that unauthorized immigrant workers accounted for 17 percent of the workforce in the U.S. agriculture industry in 2014.

Washington has long suffered from human power shortages, and has greatly depended on immigrant workers from Mexico to harvest many crops. According to Erik Nicholson, an official with the United Farm Workers union, the eventual loss of jobs among human pickers will have huge implications. Nicholson estimated that about half of Washington’s farm workers are illegal immigrants. However, he stressed that many of them have settled in the state and were productive members of the society. “They are scared of losing their jobs to mechanisation [sic]. A robot is not going to rent a house, buy clothing for their kids, buy food in a grocery and reinvest that money in the local economy,” Nicholson was quoted in DailyMail.co.uk.

President Donald trump’s hard-hitting policies against illegal migrant workers have had farms and orchards scrambling for alternative harvesting methods. Some farms have purchased new equipment in order to cut back on human resources. Other farms have even lobbied with federal officials for deals that would limit the negative effects of recent policies on their livelihoods. Jim McFerson, head of the Washington State Tree Fruit Research Centre, stressed that the recent immigration conundrum is now a matter of survival for many farmers.

Was the V2 a complete waste of time and money?



No, in fact, the answer is completely opposite.

The Vergeltungswaffe-2 (V-2) - or ‘Retribution’ rocket has not only reaped Nazi Germany ‘great’ strategic values and results: It is also a marvel of technology in itself and morbidly deserves to the last ounce the title of ‘Wunderwaffe’ - or ‘Wonder Weapon’ the Nazi’s propaganda machine has branded it.
For its time, the V-2 was a strange and revolutionary weapon. Before Wernher von Braun - the mastermind behind the rocket, no one has ever thought of such a thing and the weapon could even be considered a stuff of fantasies.
It wasn’t until von Braun’s studies about the possibility of a long-range strategic weapon that’s capable of delivering large firepower accurately and from large distance on its own without sacrificing any manpower to the Wehrmacht that the idea of a rocket gained traction.
So first:

The V-2 is:
  • The first serious attempt (and successful) at rocketry in history.
  • The first long-range ballistic missile.
I won’t consider that a waste of time or money, technically speaking.

(Wernher von Braun)

Strategically speaking, the only thing that kept the V-2 from reducing London to a smoking pile of rubble was because British’s intelligence had actively tried to fool the Germans into thinking that they’ve overshot the target that is London by several kilometres.
And they succeed.
The Germans truly thought that they’ve screwed up their aiming, re-calibrate the missiles and for the rest of the war, continuously thought that they were doing a good job when the British leaked information about how: ‘Devastating rocket attacks are’.
While in reality, the rockets were then truly landing a great distance away from London at less-populated areas in rural Kent.
Of course, conforming to their outlandish and weird culture, the Brits decided to bestow the area the nickname: ‘Bomb Alley’.
As you can see below:

All in all, it’s the human factor that contributes to the failure of the weapon. Without the many hoaxes British’s intelligence spread, that could be London.
And that has been London many times:
This is the aftermath of the first V-2 strike on Britain at Chiswick, West London - 8th of September, 1944. Killing 3 and injured 17.

The most devastating attack on London during the afternoon of November 1944. The rocket hit a Woolworths store in New Cross, South East London. Killing 168.
A group of people teaming up to rescue trapped victims in Smithfield’s market after a V-2 strike in March of 1945. Women and children were also included in the list of 110 casualties.

London was not the only place struck by the V-2 during the war:
One of the victim of a V-2’s strike in Teniers Square, Antwerp on the 27th of November, 1944. Killing 126 - with 26 Allied troops dead in the strike.
A different view from the same strike at Teniers Square.
One of the 1610 V-2 strikes that hit Antwerp.
The remnant of the most devastating attack of the V-2 when it hit the fully occupied REX Cinema in Antwerp on the 16th of December, 1944. Killing 567 and injured 291.

In total, the V-2 rockets are responsible for either killing or injuring rougly 115,000 people.
In London alone, an approximate of 2,754 people were killed and 6,523 injured. The total casualty all over Britain can be as high as 7,000. Remember, this is the softer number with the tricks pulled by British’s intelligence in place, without it, things could have been worse by several times.
Antwerp takes devastating damage, but not as bad as London. With 1,736 dead and 4,500 injured.
V-2 strikes are also peppered across France, Netherlands, many parts of Belgium, United Kingdom and even right on Germany when the Allies were gaining ground with 11 strikes on the town of Remagen.
If that’s not ‘splendid’ efficiency, I don’t know what else is.

When the war ended, the V-2 technology was captured by both the Allies and the Soviets, Wernher von Braun secretly moved to the U.S. with 1,500 other Nazi key scientists and engineers as part of Operation Paperclip.
The Operation is simple: Work for the U.S, or be prosecuted for war crimes.
Well, we all know they opted for the latter.
The technologies used by the V-2 were carefully dissected and replicated, but this time, however, the V-2 ‘kind-of’ redeem itself by leaving its destructive nature behind and lead humanity to space instead.
This is the first photograph of Earth from space - captured by a V-2 rocket on 24th of October, 1946.
The V-2’s basic concepts were implemented into virtually all future rockets, from ballistic missiles to orbital vehicles - it is the spark that kick start Space Age despite its initial beginning.

…and Wernher von Braun?
He went on to help the U.S. launched its first artificial satellite into Earth’s orbit: Explorer I.
He’s also the main reason that this picture exists, contributing majorly to the Apollo Program that put the first man on the Moon with all of his expertise on rocketry.
We probably would not have GPS, satellites, International Space Station, and even the Internet if it wasn’t for the V-2.
I would not say that it’s a bad investment.
