Read or Condemn Yourself to Death by Ignorance

For those courageous souls brave enough to look and see what is,

who are unwilling to blindly accept

the lies and rules of tyrannical authority.

The simple step of a courageous individual is not to take part in the lie.

One word of truth outweighs a world of lies.


If perchance a post of mine you think extreme

heed this from Kahlil Gibran:

“In battling evil, excess is good;

for he who is moderate in announcing the truth is presenting half-truth.

He conceals the other half out of fear of the people’s wrath.”


One of my goals is to think and act as if I fear no man’s wrath or deed.

A message to Israeli, U.S. and NATO Soldiers and Pilots

- “disobey unlawful orders, abandon the battlefield”

Both Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu as well as President Joe Biden are responsible for “war crimes”, “crimes against peace” and “crimes against humanity” as defined under Principle VI of the Nuremberg Charter.

Principle IV of the Nuremberg Charter defines the responsibility of combatants to refuse the orders of Government or a superior.

By Prof Michel Chossudovsky

Monument of Leonidas

Xerxes had spent years planning his invasion of Greece. It was to be his ’divine punishment’ for his father Darius’ crushing defeat at Marathon in 490 BC. Now, a decade later, he had spared no expense in preparing a vast expeditionary force.By the spring of 480 Xerxes’ army had reached Macedonia in the north of Greece. In response a contingent of 300 Spartans and several thousand allies were sent to occupy the narrow mountain pass of Thermopylae, not far from the Greek fleet that was anchored off the nearby coast at Artemisium.

It was a suicide mission, designed to detain the Persians just long enough for the rest of the Greek allies to gather their forces. Led by King Leonidas, the Spartans heroically held the Persians at bay for nearly a week until - outnumbered, betrayed and outflanked - they were finally defeated.

The Spartan sacrifice at Thermopylae was not in vain. In 479 BC Greece was at last free from the threat of eastern domination. After the war, a plaque was erected to commemorate the stand of Leonidas and his men with the inscription - “Stranger, tell Spartans that we lay here, staying faithful to Sparta’s laws.“

Molon Labe-Ancient Greek for “come and take them,” monument of Leonidas Thermopylae central Greece

Heroic though it was, the stand at Thermopylae was only a holding action to allow the Peloponnesians to fortify the Isthmus at Corinth and the Athenians to complete the evacuation of the city. Once Thermopylae was overrun the allied Greek fleet withdrew to the bay of Salamis. The Corinthians wanted to withdraw to south of the Isthmus and mocked the now city-less Athenians led by Themistocles. He tricked the Persians into committing their attack on the Greek fleet in the narrows of the Bay of Salamis before the Greeks could disperse. It is suggested that the Corintho-Athenian spat was a put up job to fool the Persians’ spies that the Greeks were disunited and therefore easy pickings.

The result of the Battle of Salamis was that the Persian fleet composed mainly of Phoenicians, Ionian Greeks and Egyptians lost control of the Aegean Sea. (The Greeks of Sicily and Italy were under a coordinated attack from the Phoenician-Carthaginians and won the Battle of Himera, purportedly on the same day as the Battle of Salamis)

Xerxes scuttled back over the Hellespont bridge to Asia Minor leaving a much reduced Persian army under Mardonius. It was defeated the following year by the allied Greek army led by Pausanias, Leonidas’ nephew, at Plataea. After the battle, so the story goes, he took the allied generals to Mardonius’ tent. He pointed to the lavish Persian food and then at the Spartans’ standard ration of porridge saying “They came to rob us of of this!”

An intolerant and moralizing Robert Malone

This is the worst global food crisis in modern history, and it is about to go to an entirely new level
Planet Earth

(Tom: This is a description of the current scene . For those with a low confront of evil it will be fobbed off as “a broken system“ or “incompetence“ but when the Neocons in charge of setting the direction for the US are prepared to spend billions on a proxy-war in Ukraine in an attempt to take down Russia when this situation exists, when deliberate attempts are being made to drive farmers off the land in the Netherlands and when John Kerry says we cannot afford to feed the people because farms produce too much CO2, I call malice aforethought, evil and genocide, not incompetence.)

Hundreds of millions of people are desperately hungry all over the world, and by the time you are done reading this article more children will starve to death.  Earlier this year, CNN actually admitted that we are in the midst of “the worst food crisis in modern history”, but because the mainstream media rarely features images of the tremendous suffering on the other side of the globe most Americans don’t even know that it is happening.  Here in the western world, the primary way that the global food crisis is manifesting is through significantly higher prices at the grocery store.  Those higher prices are certainly painful, but we can deal with that.  But when you don’t have enough food to feed your family on a consistent basis, that really is a nightmare scenario.  According to the official UN website, 735 million people were in a “state of chronic hunger” last year…

By 2022, approximately 735 million people – or 9.2% of the world’s population – found themselves in a state of chronic hunger – a staggering rise compared to 2019. This data underscores the severity of the situation, revealing a growing crisis.

In addition, an estimated 2.4 billion people faced moderate to severe food insecurity in 2022. This classification signifies their lack of access to sufficient nourishment. This number escalated by an alarming 391 million people compared to 2019.

The persistent surge in hunger and food insecurity, fueled by a complex interplay of factors, demands immediate attention and coordinated global efforts to alleviate this critical humanitarian challenge.

We have never seen numbers like this before.

And the final numbers for 2023 will inevitably be even higher, because crops are failing all over the planet.

For example, this has been a catastrophic year for rice crops in India…

Satish Kumar sits in front of his submerged rice paddy in India’s Haryana state, looking despairingly at his ruined crops.

“I’ve suffered a tremendous loss,” said the third generation farmer, who relies solely on growing the grain to feed his young family. “I will not be able to grow anything until November.”

The newly planted saplings have been underwater since July after torrential rain battered northern India, with landslides and flash floods sweeping through the region.

The government of India responded to this crisis by banning the export of non-basmati white rice, but this has created a massive problem for the dozens of countries that rely on rice exports from India…

Last month, India, which is the world’s largest exporter of rice, announced a ban on exporting non-basmati white rice in a bid to calm rising prices at home and ensure food security. India then followed with more restrictions on its rice exports, including a 20% duty on exports of parboiled rice.

The move has triggered fears of global food inflation, hurt the livelihoods of some farmers and prompted several rice-dependent countries to seek urgent exemptions from the ban.

More than three billion people worldwide rely on rice as a staple food and India contributed to about 40% of global rice exports.

Please read that last sentence again.

Without rice exports from India, the number of people that starve in poor countries in Africa and the Middle East will soar.

Some impoverished nations are literally begging India to start exporting non-basmati white rice again, but so far the government of India is not budging.

So the price of rice has been surging all over the world, and supplies are getting tighter and tighter.

Let me ask you a question.

What would you do if your child was wasting away from malnutrition right in front of your eyes?

In Somalia, that is actually happening to half of all children under the age of five…

In Somalia, families are currently facing a catastrophic food crisis. This is the result of a severe and prolonged drought and decades of conflict that have destroyed crop production and made it almost impossible for herders to find food for their animals.

Unfortunately, the most vulnerable are children, with 50% of children under five in the country experiencing acute malnutrition.

Here in the western world, our children are not starving.

So we should be thankful for that.

But the lines at our food banks are getting longer.  Here is an example from the state of Ohio…

Kam McKenzie, SNAP outreach manager for the food bank, said the Liberty Street pantry is seeing 940 more families per month since the end of February, when COVID-era SNAP benefits were halted.

“So now we’re averaging maybe a little over 300 families a day coming into our Liberty Street pantry to shop for groceries,” said McKenzie.

Based on the amount of food given out by Freestore, she estimated the demand on the pantry is up 27% compared to June of 2022.

And we are experiencing problems with our crops too.

In the middle of the country, seemingly endless drought conditions have greatly affected corn crops this year…

Lack of rain has hit crops hard: In Missouri, for example, 40% of the state’s corn crop was classified as poor or very poor, according to the drought monitor. Iowa, the nation’s top corn producer, is in the midst of its worst drought in a decade with about 80% of the state in some measure of drought.

Prolonged drought has even reached the banks of Lake Superior: Parts of Wisconsin have the most severe drought designation for the first time since the 1999 inception of the U.S. Drought Monitor, said Dennis Todey, director of the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Midwest Climate Hub.

“It’s the severity of the drought and the length of the drought that are causing some confounding issues right now,” he said.

Unfortunately, we are still only in the very early stages of this new global food crisis.

Multiple long-term trends will combine to make it impossible for us to feed everyone on the planet in the years ahead.

Our politicians know this, but they are being very quiet about our rapidly growing food crisis because they don’t want to alarm the general population.

But there will be no escape.  Hundreds of millions will not have enough food to eat tonight, and it won’t be too long before the number of people that are facing chronic hunger exceeds a billion.


The cabal have been selecting presidents for a very long time. This difficult truth is a redpill that is tough to get down. It must be known that in 1933 when the Corporation, known as the US govt (Title 28 USC 3002 15), went bankrupt it fell under the ownership of 150+ financiers mostly foreign. Presidents are selected, NOT ELECTED, by the oligarchy that own the Corporation. This corporation is a world empire known as “The Empire of Cities”. This Corporation has three heads. London controls the currency. The Vatican controls the religious aspect. D.C. controls the military. All 3 are corporations. In fact after America’s govt was corporatized in 1871 then fell under cabal ownership in 1933 this conquering was used as a blueprint to do the same WW. Look at, and read the list of nations whose central bank is a privately owned corporation funded by the IMF/World Bank to verify. The political class are third tier on the WW ponzie pyramid. Socialite class, such as Hollywood, contracted musicians, “stars”, are the second tier. These are usually the abused offspring of the first class’s rituals. These people are sick. What does “God’s children are not for sale” really mean to you? Who is that powerful statement directed at? [They] held half the world’s finances. We held the other half. The advantage is ours. Due to our numbers. Division is the preferred tool of the cabal to nullify our advantage. The way the people unified after 9/11 is the thing that stopped the spark to depopulate the planet. Here we are 20+ years later and the eugenicists are at it again, Folks. Together we win.

The Era Of Free Will Is Over
The Era Of Free Will Is Over

This guy is a Class A Suppressive who would like to have us all enslaved. He is a key advisor to Klaus Schwab of the World Economic Forum who are pushing the Climate Change fraud to usher in their dystopian nightmare of a one world government.

The hubris of these ill-intentioned people is gob-smacking. If they studied and learned ANY history at all they would know that slave societies do not last. But then, building something that lasts is not high on their agenda. Destroying what is and what could be tops their list.

To learn what you can do to counter their evil agenda, go to my blog post, read it then watch Catherine:


An American Christmas Carol
An American Christmas Carol

by Lee Steinhauer, Townhall

It was Christmas Eve, and Uncle Sam was in a humbug mood and feeling altogether like a Scrooge.

Day and night, he heard complaints about how the food and home prices were too high and “The People” were barely scraping by.

“Go ask the free market!” he responded with a harrumph.

Besides, he had nothing to spare, what with all those expensive foreign wars draining his coffers and the multitudes clamoring at his borders.

And for those too lazy to pull themselves up by their bootstraps, well, if they were going to expire, best hurry up and do it, and decrease the surplus population for the sake of the environment.

But that night, something peculiar happened, something terrifying and wonderful at the same time.

At first, he thought himself dreaming or that perhaps he had accidentally imbibed an unknown mixture while in San Francisco.

For before him was the ghostly presence of his long-dead partner, Washington.

Not mind you, that place that haunted him daily, but the hallowed personage from whom it derived its name and which it had done so much lately to sully.

It was the great General himself, a white wig and all, standing, or rather floating, now at his bedside.

“George, is that really you?” Sam replied, scarcely trusting his eyes, and then seeing his old friend was burdened by a ponderous iron chain that seemed to go on for miles, added, “And what the Dickens are you carrying?”

“Your debt,” the Founding Father answered coldly.

“My debt?” said Sam, thinking he had large enough ones already; the last thing he needed was another.

“Each link,” continued Washington, “forged from the obligations owed to those Patriots who built our country.”

“Why are you here?” asked Sam.

“To warn you,” said Washington. “Tonight, you will be visited by three ghosts. Take heed of them, or these debts shall never be satisfied. Expect the first at the chime of the clock,” and with that, Washington departed.

As promised (for Washington never lied), the clock chimed, and the first ghost arrived.

The spirit was familiar to Sam again, and he knew him right away— “Jefferson!”

“I am the Ghost of America’s Past,” said the Pen of the Revolution, holding his famous quill, “Come, there is precious time to waste.”

Suddenly, as if by Christmas magic, they were transported to another time and place.

Sam found himself standing alongside the Father of Independence just as his famous Declaration was being signed, with many past friends there too, as if all were still alive.

“Adams! Franklin!” Sam exclaimed, but they could not hear him.

“These are shadows of what was,” explained the ghostly Sage of Monticello, “they cannot see or hear us any more than we may affect them.”

As he watched, Sam felt again the promise of the miraculous new nation being born, fashioned by an unlikely rebel band of farmers and shopkeepers.

Then, however, the scene faded and, in a blink, came a rapid succession of others.

Sam saw the infant nation grow quickly as The People forged bravely ahead with their Manifest Destiny and spread across the vast continent, pioneers taming a vast wilderness.

And there was a younger, more vigorous Sam pitching in!

Towns and communities bursting with civic pride soon sprouted all over the country with good homes filled with strong, vibrant American families flying Old Glory proudly.

How refreshing, thought Sam, to see such patriotism again.

From humble beginnings, the nation grew to become the envy of the world, with modernity and prosperity Made in America.

A gleam of pride twinkled in Sam’s eye, of the kind he had not known for some time.

“We built something truly wonderful,” he remarked to Jefferson, adding, as if to himself, “where did it go?”

Sam then glimpsed an older version of himself and a fatter one, not of his current girth certainly, but well along the path.

Many recognizable Men of Business were with him, and they toasted Sam while stuffing fistfuls of money into his pockets and then placed papers before him, which he eagerly signed.

“Cheap labor,” said one, handing Sam a Bill as he stuffed dollars into his overflowing pockets.

“Free trade,” whispered yet another, doing the same.

“The Business of America is Business!” Sam heard himself proclaim to raucous cheers from the congregated Chamber of Commerce.

Jefferson shook his head and responded, “What of The People? Are they not our Business, too?”

Before Sam could respond, he awoke with a startle and, thinking momentarily that perhaps the nightmare was over, when the clock chimed again, and the second ghost entered.

This spirit was jolly and full, with a broad chest and a hardy constitution, and in his hand was a big wooden stick.

Like the last, Sam recognized him instantly, “Teddy!”

“Bully!” boomed the reply, “I am the Ghost of America’s Present,” and flashing a toothy Rooseveltian grin— “We must be off!”

This time, Sam was transported to a part of the country that, at first, he did not recognize, for it was a forlorn and destitute place forgotten by many.

“Where are we?” asked Sam.

“Surely, you know it?” said Teddy, “Look closely!”

As Sam gazed at the crumbling streets and derelict buildings, the abandoned steel mill standing like a grim memorial, and through the despair hanging in the air, he suddenly remembered.

It was one of those proud American towns Jefferson had shown him earlier.

“What happened here?”

“Don’t you know?” said Teddy. “You signed the laws, after all.”

A pit welled up in Sam’s stomach.

“Come see what has become of this place and its people,” said Teddy.

After traveling through rows of once happy homes now marked for foreclosure, they came upon one flying an American flag in the yard and Christmas cheer displayed upon the windowsill.

“Who lives here?” asked Sam.

“Let’s go see,” said Teddy.

When they entered, they found a family of four sitting around a small table preparing to eat Christmas dinner: a father, a mother, a young boy, and a teenage girl.

The house was threadbare, with most of its belongings appearing cheaply made by foreign hands—including the Christmas tree and the few presents beneath.

Sam noticed a picture hanging on the wall of the father adorned in military uniform.

“He served us,” said Sam.

“Honorably, like his father and his before him,” said Teddy.

Sam suddenly felt the weight of Washington’s chains heavily upon his back.

“And now?”

“Laid off,” said Teddy. “When the plant where he toiled for years was looted by Private Equity and sold off for parts, leaving him with nary a shred of dignity and grim prospects.”

On the counter, Sam saw a stack of overdue bills.

The mother, wearing a work uniform emblazoned with the logo of an eponymous big box store, parceled the family’s meager meal onto her children’s plates, including a rather unappetizing ham that looked like it was concocted in a lab.

“She is wearing her work clothes,” noted Sam.

“She has to work tonight,” said Teddy, “her second job of the day.”

“But it’s Christmas!” exclaimed Sam.

“So,” said Teddy, “corporate profits must be made! And if she will not, then she will lose her situation to another. After all, no shortage of cheap labor for those paltry wages, thanks to you!”

Sam frowned deeply.

The father stood then, bowed his head, and led the family in prayer, and Sam joined in as well.

“And God bless America!” finished his son cheerfully, and his father beamed with pride.

But suddenly, the boy, who appeared quite sickly, was overtaken by a coughing fit, and his mother rushed to his side.

“Is he ok?” asked Sam.

Teddy shook his head. “Afflicted by an awful illness caused by corporate malfeasance.”

“The doctors are treating him, though?” asked Sam hopefully.

“The family cannot afford the care he desperately needs, and the company that caused his malady got off Scot free, thanks to your laws,” said Teddy.

“That is not right,” whispered Sam.

“What do you care!” boomed Teddy. “If the boy is to expire, best hurry and do it, along with the rest of this poor American family,” and parroting Sam’s words back at him, “and decrease the surplus population.”

“This is not what I want!” Sam replied angrily.

“Yet it is what you have wrought,” Teddy responded.

Abruptly, the scene faded from view, and the spirit, too.

Sam found himself in a dark, dreary expanse, with a tall, gangly figure standing grimly beside him, with a distinctive black top hat, and dressed all in black like an undertaker.

“The Ghost of America Yet to Come, I surmise,” said Sam to The Great Emancipator.

The ghost said nothing but simply pointed a long, thin finger towards the darkness ahead.

They came to a graveyard, in the middle of which stood a single tombstone.

“Who lies there?” asked Sam, afraid of the answer.

The figure only pointed again.

The United States of America, the grave read.

Sam shrieked in horror.

“It cannot be! It must not! Please, I’ll fix it! I promise!” Sam swore in the darkness. “Grant me the chance to alter this course—I beg you!”

Sam awoke to find that it was Christmas morning and, rushing to look outside, saw his nation still alive.

He rejoiced, for Fate had not yet been sealed.

“There is still time yet,” he thought, “to set America right.”


Until next time,
dream big dreams,
plan out how to achieve them,
be continually executing your plans,
enlist people to your causes,
travel and/or read widely, preferably both,
all the while observing what you observe
rather than thinking what you are told to think,
think well of your fellow man,
take time to help your fellow man,
he sorely needs it and it will help you too,
eat food that is good for your body,
exercise your body,
take time to destress,
and do the important things
that make a difference -
they are rarely the urgent ones!
