Introducing the terrifying mathematics of the Anthropocene


Owen Gaffney and Will Steffen
Friday, February 17, 2017

Here are some surprising facts about humans’ effect on planet Earth. We have made enough concrete to create an exact replica of Earth 2mm thick. We have produced enough plastic to wrap Earth in clingfilm. We are creating "technofossils”, a new term for congealed human-made materials — plastics and concretes — that will be around for tens of millions of years.

But it is the scale that humans have altered Earth’s life support system that is the most concerning.

In 2000, Nobel laureate Paul Crutzen and Eugene Stoermer proposed that human impact on the atmosphere, the oceans, the land and ice sheets had reached such a scale that it had pushed Earth into a new epoch. They called it the Anthropocene and argued the current Holocene epoch was over.

The Holocene began 11,700 years ago as we emerged from a deep ice age. Over the past 10,000 years, the defining feature of the Holocene has been a remarkably stable Earth system. This stability has allowed us to develop agriculture and hence villages, towns and eventually cities — human civilisation.

We use pretty powerful rhetoric to describe the Anthropocene and current human impact. As The Economist stated in 2011, humanity has “become a force of nature reshaping the planet on a geological scale”. We are like an asteroid strike. We have the impact of an ice age.

But what does this really mean? Does it mean, for example, that we are having as big an impact as these natural

The maths of the Anthropocene

In our recent study, we wanted to find the simplest way to mathematically describe the Anthropocene and articulate the difference between how the planet once functioned and how it now functions.

Life on Earth, the chemical and physical composition of the atmosphere and oceans and the size of the ice sheets have changed over time because of slight alterations to Earth’s orbit around the sun, changes to the sun’s energy output or major asteroid impacts like the one that killed the dinosaurs.

They can also change due to geophysical forces: continents collide, cutting off ocean currents so heat is distributed in a new way, upsetting climate and biodiversity.

They also shift due to the sheer internal dynamics of the system — new life evolves to drive great planetary shifts, such as the Great Oxidation Event around 2.5 billion years ago when newly evolved cyanobacteria began emitting the deadly poison oxygen that killed all simple life forms it came in touch with. Life had to evolve to tolerate oxygen.

Taking as our starting point a 1999 article by Earth system scientist Hans Joachim Schellnhuber, we can say the rate of change of the Earth system (E) has been driven by three things: astronomical forcings, such as those from the sun or asteroids; geophysical forcing, for example changing currents; and internal dynamics, such as the evolution of cyanobacteria. Let’s call them A, G and I.

Mathematically, we can put it like this:


Mathematical function

It reads: the rate of change of the Earth system (dE/dt) is a function of astronomical and geophysical forcings and internal dynamics. It is a very simple statement about the main drivers of the system.

This equation has been true for four billion years, since the first life evolved. In his article, Schellnhuber argued that people must be added into this mix, but his theory came before the full impact of humanity had been assessed. In the past few decades, this equation has been radically altered.

We are losing biodiversity at rates tens to hundreds of times faster than natural rates. Indeed, we are approaching mass extinction rates. There have been five mass extinctions in the history of life on Earth. The last killed the non-avian dinosaurs 66 million years ago, now humans are causing the sixth.

The rate we are emitting carbon dioxide might be at an all-time high since that time too. Global temperatures are rising at a rate 170 times faster than the Holocene baseline. The global nitrogen cycle is undergoing its largest and most rapid change in possibly 2.5 billion years.

In fact, the rate of change of the Earth system under human influence in the past four decades is so significant we can now show that the equation has become:

Mathematical function

H stands for humanity. In the Anthropocene equation, the rate of change of the Earth system is a function of humanity.

A, G and I are now approaching zero relative to the other big force — us — they have become essentially negligible. We are now the dominant influence on the stability and resilience of the planet we call home.

This is worth a little reflection. For four billion years, the Earth system changed under the influence of tremendous solar-system wide forces of nature. Now this no longer holds.
A new reality

Heavenly bodies of course still exert some force; so does the ground beneath our feet. But the rates at which these forces operate are now negligible compared with the rate at which we are changing the Earth system. In the 1950s or 1960s, our own impact rivalled the great forces of nature. Now it usurps them entirely.

This should come as a shock, not only to environmentalists, but to everyone on Earth. But our conclusion is arguably a modest addition to the canon of academic literature. The scale and rate of change has already been well established by Earth system scientists over the past two decades.

Recently, Mark Williams and colleagues argued that the Anthropocene represents the third new era in Earth’s biosphere and astrobiologist David Grinspoon argued that the Anthropocene marks one of the major events in a planet’s “life”, when self-aware cognitive processes become a key part of the way the planet functions.

Still, formalising the Anthropocene mathematically brings home an entirely new reality.

The drama is heightened when we consider that for much of Earth’s history, the planet has been either very hot — a greenhouse world — or very cold — an icehouse world. These appear to be deeply stable states, lasting millions of years and resistant to even quite major shoves from astronomical or geophysical forces.

But the past 2.5 million years have been uncharacteristically unstable, periodically flickering from cold to a gentle warmth.
The consumption vortex

So, who do we mean when we talk of H? Some will argue that we cannot treat humanity as one homogenous whole. We agree.

While all of humanity is now in the Anthropocene, we are not all in it in the same way. Industrialised societies are the reason we have arrived at this place, not Inuits in northern Canada or smallholder farmers in sub-Saharan Africa.

Scientific and technological innovations and economic policies promoting growth at all costs have created a consumption and production vortex on a collision course with the Earth system.

Others may say that natural forces are too important to ignore: for example, the El Nino weather system periodically changes patterns globally and causes Earth to warm for a year or so; and the tides generate more energy than all of humanity. But a warm El Nino is balanced by a cool La Nina. The tides and other great forces of nature are powerful but stable. Overall, they do not affect the rate of change of the Earth system.

Now, only a truly catastrophic volcanic eruption or direct asteroid hit could match us for impact.

So, can the Anthropocene equation be solved? The current rate of change must return to around zero as soon as possible. It cannot continue indefinitely. Either humanity puts on the brakes or it would seem unlikely a global civilisation will continue to function on a destabilised planet. The choice is ours.

                                                                    Disengaging the Addictive Control in an Addicted Society


Disengaging the Addictive Control in an Addicted Society
by OMTimes Magazine
MARCH 7, 2017

Disengaging from Addictive Control and Lying

We know we are in the biggest shift in human consciousness, and also strive to be part of the resolution. Yet, with all our good intentions, we find ourselves repeating what we know is part of the problem. We engage in our old controlling and addictive ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving. When we get honest with ourselves, we admit to the voice inside telling us we are lying as a way to tolerate our lives.

We love the idea of letting go and going with the flow. At the same time, we fear that our lives will fall apart and we will end up alone and die if we disengage from the addictive control.

 
Addictive Control and Our Feelings of Powerlessness

Control has become the culturally acceptable way of dealing with our feelings of powerlessness. We also sense the pervasiveness of how it affects our lives and our world. We look for pathways to create a new context of living and know we will be happier and healthier when we can do the following:

    Remain present and honest with ourselves.
    Admit when the jobs we have are not right for us.
    Spend our days doing the things we love to do.
    Spend more time with the people we love.
    Take better care of ourselves.

Let go of thinking what we should do, and allow ourselves to follow our internal guidance system.

 
The Invitation of Addiction in Society

Ann Wilson Schaef, author of “When Society Becomes an Addict” says, “Not only does our society invite addiction, it requires addiction to tolerate the society we have created”. Addiction is how we distract, control and disconnect ourselves from the truth of what we are really thinking, feeling and doing. When we feel powerlessness to stop the addiction, we are tempted to lie about it.

Whether it is an ingestive addiction (drugs, nicotine, alcohol, etc.) or a process addiction (obsessive thinking, worrying, self-generated feelings, money etc.), addiction interferes with our natural life processes. It interferes with our thinking, feeling and internal guidance system that is our natural way of knowing what is good for us.
How Do Addictions Erode Our Sense of Connection?

The following are how addictions erode our connection with ourselves and others:

Dishonesty: Lying to ourselves and others.

Self-Centeredness: Thinking, feeling and behaving in ways that are motivated out of our need to control everyone and everything. Believing that others are either for or against us.

Illusion of Control: Thinking we can be in control of everyone and everything.

Notice how these very same addictive choices are rampant in our politics, media, education, corporations, medical institutions and other aspects of our society. Most of us can relate to this; however, we find it elusive to grasp the subtle and pervasive ways that addiction has a grip on us. We wonder how to know if we are addicted. The simplest answer is that we know.

Intimacy with ourselves is the key to disengaging from the addictive control. People fear that letting go of addiction will be hard. The truth, however, is that trying to keep everything under control is the hardest and most destructive thing we can do to ourselves. Disengaging from the addictive control is one of the easiest most natural things we can do.

 
So, How Do We Disengage from Addictive Control?

The following are some of the ways we can disengage and free ourselves from the addictive control:

    Cultivate the awareness that we are literally connected to all that is.
    Realize that we are vast multidimensional beings connected to the loving source that is creating us.
    Admit and feel any powerlessness.
    Engage in enjoyable movement to keep our energy flowing and open to change.
    Spend time with ourselves.
    Let go of thinking that life is static and it is our responsibility to get it under control.
    Become aware of any addictive control plans we use to keep selecting, distorting and provoking our reality so we can prove to ourselves that we need to stay in addictive control to survive.
    Release ourselves and others as objects that need controlling or fixing.
    Let go of any addictive intellectual constructs, methodologies, interpretations, rational or logical constructs that keep us fixated in an old context of living.
    Connect with our internal guidance system to find the way to what is best for us.
    Let go of trying to be perfect, right and done.
    Allow our life process to unfold and reveal itself in the perfect time, place and form.
    Surround ourselves others who also want to join us in the journey.
    Be aware of the withdrawal experience. Keep our energy moving to allow space for the old habits to dissolve, resolve and evolve.
    Receive our power to co-create with our loving source the lives of joy, creativity, fun, ease, abundance and wellness we want.

Massive permaculture project lifts 2.5 million out of poverty

Exposing the Truth

If you visit the Loess Plateau right now you will find a suitably luscious landscape in the province thought to be the cradle of Chinese civilisation. Agricultural land is rich in produce and animals, tourism levels have significantly increased, and farmers are reaping the rewards of an economic boom on the land they own, not merely tend to.

It is incredible to think that little over 10 years ago this flourishing ecosystem was devastated to the point of collapse, and no longer able to support the population. Centuries of unsustainable farming on the land caused alarming levels of soil erosion, flooding, nutrient depletion, crop failure, and poverty was widespread throughout the province. No solution seemed sufficient, and after supporting settled agriculture for an estimated 9,500 years, the Loess Plateau seemed beyond repair.

Its transformation into today’s luscious green greatly contrasts the desolation of a decade ago. The answer, we are told, lies in sustainable or regenerative farming, also known as permaculture.

The Root of the Problem

In 1995, the Chinese Government received $300 million in funding from the World Bank Institute, a co-operative providing international financial assistance, to launch a two-stage recovery initiative. After consultations with experts in hydrology, soil dynamics and economics, the Chinese government knew they needed to successfully tackle both the agricultural and social problems in Loess. These issues were both cause and symptom of problems in the area and one could not be resolved without the other.

The actions of destitute farmers who farmed rather than owned the land had exasperated agricultural devastation. As trees were cleared to make way for arable land, the consequent soil erosion was taking a dangerous toll on the great Yellow River, which began to flood regularly with deadly results. For too long, villagers had seen little incentive to preserve trees, which would take years to become profitable, above feeding their families. Cover-crops that don’t benefit yield in the short term, but sustain the soil over the long term, didn’t have much appeal.

When Juergen Voegele, Senior Director of Agriculture Global Practice at the World Bank, spoke to a community in Shaanxi Province about the importance of planting trees, a village elder shouted in exasperation, “people can’t eat trees!”

A New Approach

Incidents like this showed the research team that giving farmers ownership of their own land, and access to the resources and education necessary for more responsible agriculture, was essential to giving them the incentive to improve what it could yield. The farmers worked with the government to create planting techniques and wide-yield terraces to secure the soil and improve crop productivity. They used nitrogen-fixing cover-crops to regenerate nitrogen in the soil, and further reduce erosion.

Long-term land-use rights for the villagers was introduced, giving them a reason to invest in the health of their land and explore the techniques being trialled. The project also protected areas of arable land in order to improve vegetation cover and sediment control. With the support of these farmers, free-range grazing and the indiscriminate felling of trees was banned in order to allow regeneration to take place. Terracing structured ridges of earth across a slope, reducing water damage and erosion, which helped increased the food supply.

The combination of all these techniques has reduced soil erosion by 60 tonnes per year, decreasing the variability in food production, which in turn led to a better standard and price of the crops. As crop security improved, the labour needed was decreased, allowing farmers to pursue secondary projects and improve their financial stability.

Reaping the rewards

A decade later, responsible farming on a local scale has lifted an estimated 2.5 million people out of poverty, making the Loess Plateau Project one of the largest success stories for sustainable farming. In treating the social issues alongside the agricultural, contributors to the project have halted a cycle into seemingly irreversible destruction. It is a remarkable achievement, and those involved are confident that the measures should be adopted in similar environments, and also by domestic farmers and gardeners worldwide. Project leaders passionately claim that their project demonstrates that farmers using sustainable techniques can provide for themselves and a market, while acting as stewards of the earth.

Access to nature reduces depression and obesity, finds European study




The Guardian

People living close to trees and green spaces are less likely to be obese, inactive, or dependent on anti-depressants, according to a new report.

Middle-aged Scottish men with homes in deprived but verdant areas were found to have a death rate 16% lower than their more urban counterparts. Pregnant women also received a health boost from a greener environment, recording lower blood pressures and giving birth to larger babies, research in Bradford found.

Overall, nature is an under-recognised healer, the paper says, offering multiple health benefits from allergy reductions to increases in self-esteem and mental wellbeing.

A study team of 11 researchers at the Institute for European environmental policy (IEEP) spent a year reviewing more than 200 academic studies for the report, which is the most wide-ranging probe yet into the dynamics of health, nature and wellbeing.

The project first appeared as an unpublicised 280-page European commission literature review last autumn, before being augmented for Friends of the Earth Europe with analysis of the links between nature-related health outcomes and deprivation.

“The evidence is strong and growing that people and communities can only thrive when they have access to nature,” said Robbie Blake, a nature campaigner for Friends of the Earth Europe, which commissioned the analysis.

“We all need nature in our lives, it gives us freedom and helps us live healthily; yet deprived communities are routinely cut off from nature in their surroundings and it is suffocating for their well-being.”

The report makes use of several studies that depict access to nature as being inextricably linked to wealth inequality, because deprived communities typically have fewer natural environments within easy reach.

The study cites research that 26% of England’s black and minority ethnic populations visit natural environments less than three times a year, compared with 15% of the rest of the population.

Patrick ten Brink, the IEEP’s director, praised cities such as Oslo and Victoria-Gasteiz for taking steps to make nature accessible to all.

“We should be inspired by this and work together so that all Europeans have nature within 300 metres of their homes in the next 10 years,” he said.

Previous US research has found that that hospital patients with tree views from their windows were discharged a day earlier than those whose rooms faced walls.

An extra 10 trees on a Toronto city block provided health benefits to residents equivalent to a $10,000 increase in annual income, or being seven years younger, another study in 2015 found.

Azozeo's News Channel - Activating Our Self-Healing Powers
« Reply #53 on: April 20, 2017, 09:50:54 AM »
HumansAreFree

Activating Our Self-Healing Powers

Spontaneous healing: The human body has self-healing capabilities. Here’s how to activate them

The term Self-healing, indicates the autonomous process of the human body that tends to safeguard the very life of the body.

How many depressions, panic attacks, or anxiety states could be resolved if you only focused on listening to your needs.

These common psychosomatic manifestations are supported by an autonomic nervous system hyperactivity, particularly from the sympathetic section.

Not just anxiety and panic attacks! Stress, strong self-control, produce the same molecules that weaken our health system.

Cortisol, (adrenaline stress hormone), free radicals are the responsible molecules, which when produced over and over and for a long time, weaken the immune, cardiovascular and gastrointestinal system.

They, among other things, cause a reduction in white blood cells and also increase blood pressure and heart rate, providing humans with an increased risk of getting into frequent (viral, bacterial) diseases and raising risk factors of Stroke or myocardial infarction.

It is possible to get away from these dangers through the “reprogramming” of our mental activity: to be in harmony with our own needs and therefore with oneself, be free to express emotions, laugh, meditate, live satisfying sexuality, cultivate interests and passions.

Being creative, engaging in the favorite sport promotes health, promotes self-esteem for good humor, empathy.

Doctors and scientists around the world investigate a strange phenomenon, even if it is well-known to everyone: cases of people without apparently medical reasons cure serious illness.

Hippocrates (460-377 BC) recognized as the founder of medicine said, “The doctor cares, Nature heals.”

The Doctor administers the treatment, Nature produces healing. We will see in this article how we can help Nature (our Self-healing Mechanism) to heal us.

How to activate self-healing processes

William Braud outlined five key steps to activate self-healing processes and activate the natural body repairing forces that adopted and modified in the light of new discoveries:

1 – Sit or lie in a quiet place.

2 – Turn off your cell phone, remove anything that shakes your body like rings, belts, bracelets, and so on.

3 – Close your eyes and breathe deeply and slowly, taking care of your belly swelling and deflating. After a few minutes you will be in a state of deep physical and mental relaxation that brings the brain to the Alpha state.

4 – Focus on the breath by allowing thoughts to flow. After a dozen of breaths expanding attention to the whole body, as if you were breathing with your whole body, as if every cell was breathing.

5 –  Visualize increasingly vivid and detailed mental images of the body in perfect health, full of vital white light that sweeps away the illness from dark spots and particles.

6 – Summon and get involved with positive emotions.

7 – Finish with both hands on the center of the chest, halfway between the sternum and the throat where the thyroid gland lies. It should not be strong, but press until it becomes softer.

It starts to give a series of taps like knocking. At the same time, breathe by inflating the chest and subsequent belly breathing, and so on.

This exercise stimulates the endocrine gland to activate. PNEI demonstrates how the immune system and endocrine system are deeply bound.


And if I have no health problem?

If you are in perfect health you can still use this technique to make your body vibrant with energy by improving physical performance and mental lucidity.

The real healing

Plato asserted that it is not possible to heal only the body irrespective of knowledge of the mind and soul, while Heraclitus maintained that the hidden harmony is stronger than the manifested one.

We must never forget that, in the case of healing, merit is merely to the nature and the internal healing power that everyone has within himself. We can only avoid hindering this natural process.

May 24th, 2017 is more significant than December 21st, 2012
« Reply #54 on: May 07, 2017, 01:53:25 PM »
Recently, The Mind Unleashed interviewed Carl Johan Calleman, one of the world’s foremost experts on the Mayan calendar, to discuss with him the significance of a new cycle that begins on May 24th, 2017.

1.What is your background on the Mayan calendar, for those that don’t know your work?
My background is in the hard sciences and my PhD is in physical biology and I have lectured at some of the most prestigious scientific institutions in the world. Nonetheless, in 1993 the calling became very strong and I decided to devote myself full time to elucidating the true meaning of the Mayan calendar system in such a way that it became understandable for modern people. I have written six books based on the framework of the Mayan calendar, which have been translated to a total of fourteen languages. I have also worked with Mayan elders to help them bring their message out to the world.

2. What was the significance of October 28th, 2011?
October 28, was a day when all the nine waves influencing our biology and especially mind
shifted and created a new interference pattern (see image below). The importance of this shift
had been predicted in the Tortuguero Monument no 6, which said that Bolon Yokte Kuh, the Mayan god of the nine levels, would appear in his full regalia.
Translated to more modern language this means that for the first time in the history of the universe (including humanity) all waves (the full regalia) were activated and running in parallel. Before March 9, 2011 the Ninth Wave creating unity consciousness had not been activated and it was only after this shift point that all waves became accessible for us to create resonance with. (The ancient Maya talked about such a wave as the Plumed Serpent, an energy bringing civilization). Each wave creates a different kind of filter for the human mind (see below) and so depending on what wave we are in resonance we will perceive the world differently.
We will then in turn project this mind and create an external reality consistent with the perceptions of our mind. If we download a mind of duality we will project this onto the world and create conflicts, but if we download a mind of unity we will create a world of peace. What the Maya calendar ultimately describes and the reason it is prophetic are the time lines of these shifting frames of mind. The Mayan calendar system is quite complex and a very fascinating subject that I encourage people to study. Nonetheless, from the perspective of creating the future of humanity it is really enough to follow the Ninth Wave and be able to discern its effects on our individual lives.




polarities
3. What was the significance of December 21st, 2012?
None at all. It was a miscalculation by the archaeologists that some new age researchers who had not looked into the matter deeply came to embrace. It was very unfortunate that the Mayan calendar was popularized as some significant that would take place in a singular day. This is not how the Mayan calendar works. Instead it describes shifting waves with wavelengths of different lengths sometimes bringing change over very long time periods.
4. What makes May 24th, 2017 so special?
In principle, it is not more special than any other beginnings of a 36 wave period of the Ninth Wave. (see http://www.xzone.com.au/9thwave.php). May 24, is the first day of the 64th DAY in the Ninth Wave. However, it may be regarded as the beginning of a sustained effort to facilitate for people to create resonance with the Ninth Wave. This event will be followed by events on June 29, August 4, and so on. It is not to be looked upon as a singular event. Yet, it can be argued that the chaos in the world has come to a point where it becomes a necessity to create resonance on a larger collective scale with the wave that generates unity consciousness.
5. Did the “Age of Heart” begin at the beginning of the 9th wave or is it beginning on May 24th?
Our universe, and we ourselves are created by the combined effects of Nine Waves of creation. Hence, there is no change that takes place across the board at any particular shift points in time. The effects on our heart depends on what waves we have created resonance with and this comes don to what kind of intentions we have. Most people today still resonate with the 6th 7th and 8th wave, none of which creates a fully open heart. However, a minority of people have started to develop a resonance with the ninth wave and over time as they are guided by this they will gain a new perception of reality beyond separation. No event on any single date will change humanity to the Age of Heart, but the sustained intention to manifest the destiny of humanity through resonance with the Ninth Wave will create such a Golden Age.





6. The San Bushmen of the Kalahari are in direct contact with you and and other leaders in the Mayan calendar community, like Sean Caulfield, and are creating a ceremony to initiate this new cycle for humanity. Can you tell us a bit about these people as well as ceremony that will be taking place?
The San are representatives of what arguably is the oldest existing culture of our planet who have suffered severe persecution over the last hundred years. They live in the Kalahari desert (the southern part of Africa) and may be looked upon as a shamanic collective, which through there trance dance enter the spirit world where they communicate with God and all the animal spirits. It may be the only culture on our planet that still looks upon such a state of consciousness as the default, that which is real. On the particular day May 24, when a new wave period in the ninth wave begins, they will create such a dance. The event has been called Ignite the One Heart Fire, pointing towards the unity that is the destiny of humanity. [You can read more here about the event that has been posted on Facebook.]
7. For people who aren’t able to attend the event in person (in Cape Town, South Africa) what might people do to participate on their own that day?
The important thing is that people through their own experiences become aware of the existence of the Ninth Wave and for this to happen they will need to follow the ninth wave for a number of wave periods to see how its ups and down affect their lives. The Bushmen are setting a tone, but others can organize events or simply light a candle to mark that it is the beginning of a new DAY in the Ninth Wave. This is not a day that people should expect everything to change automatically. It is more of a commitment to participate in the transformative process brought by the Ninth Wave over years to come. [The Bushmen have also invited and asked all indigenous groups to participate in this ceremony in ways each group sees fit. Please spread the word accordingly. Again, the event where more information is posted is on Facebook here at this link. ]
8. You’ve just stated that there are other events planned as the cycles continue to converge. Where can people find out more information about these dates?
For the shift days in the Ninth Wave I recommend http://www.xzon.com.au/9thwave.php
Thank you for your insight Carl.

Historic changes in central Europe Asia and elsewhere as old order implodes

June 26, 2017

Sometimes historic changes are announced in obscure headlines such as this one: “Defense Ministers from Six Countries Focus on Cooperation in Prague.”

http://www.radio.cz/en/section/news/defence-ministers-from-six-countries-focus-on-cooperation-in-prague

A more accurate headline would read “Austro-Hungarian Empire revived after 100 year hiatus.” The story says Czechia, Slovakia, Hungary, Austria Slovenia and Croatia are going to carry out a joint exercise to protect their borders. Their joint borders are almost the same borders as those of the Austro-Hungarian Empire and within these borders civilian, police and military authorities are going to work together. Usually, a shared external border, in this case operating independently from the EU, is a definition of a country.

https://visegradpost.com/en/2017/06/23/the-central-european-defence-cooperation-commited-against-mass-migration/

It is also worth noting the Habsburg dynasty overthrown after World War I were rivals of the Saxe-Gotha-Rothschild dynasties that won the war; which may be why Hungary has already thrown out its Saxe-Gotha-Rothschild central bank.
It is a good guess that Karl Von Habsburg,

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_von_Habsburg

head of the Paneuropean Union and heir to the Habsburg throne, sees a chance to revive his ancestor’s Empire now that his Saxe-Gotha-Rothschild rivals have lost so much of their power.
Elsewhere in Europe, we are seeing a growing split between Germany and the US with people in Germany now openly talking about the EU imposing sanctions on the US in retaliation for their efforts to stop the Germans from buying more cheap Russian gas.

http://www.theaegisalliance.com/home2/theaegis/WP/2017/06/21/germany-threatens-sanction-u-s-new-sanctions-russia-imposed/

The Europeans are also pushing to create a joint army with the capability to operate overseas as yet another break with US President Donald Trump’s America.

Also, Rothschild slave President Emmanuel Macron of France has now publicly sided with Russia on Syria. This is a clear indication the opportunistic Rothschilds understand who they have to suck up to now if they want to protect their interests.

The rise of Russia’s influence, however, has led to a huge power struggle there with the Knights of Malta trying to take control, according to FSB sources there. The following Russians have been awarded the Maltese Knight’s cross:

Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, B.A.Berezovsky, Pavel Borodin, G.E.Burbulis, Mikhail Gorbachev, Boris Yeltsin, VV . Ilyushin V.V.Kostikov, M.Yu.Lesin, S.F.Lisovsky, Yevgeny Primakov, A.V.Rutskoy, S.A.Filatov, Shaimiev, S.M.Shahry, V.B.Yumashev, and S.V.Yastrzhembsky, according to Russian FSB sources.

“Why are these people involved in an organization that has promoted the destruction of Russia (what is left of it), the collapse of industry, science and education, the extinction of the Russian people and the spiritual impoverishment of the nation?” an FSB source connected with the White Dragon Society asks. “The Masonic Order of the Knight’s Cross is awarded for the behind-the-scenes aiding in the destruction of Russian statehood, sovereignty and power of the state,” this source continues.

The source says the Knights of Malta are trying to control all Russian private security companies. They are doing this through an association of bodyguards in Russia led by a Mr. Fonareff, who is “a small puppet to the Order of Malta.” The parent organization is the International Bodyguard and Security Services Organization.

http://www.ibssa.org

“When you read their website just remove the “anti”…because I hear the Hospitaliers and Red Cross are involved in human trafficking and organ theft,” according to the source, who is senior in the Russian government.

The entire organization is headed by Professor George Popper, a senior Knight of Malta.

http://www.ibssa.org/static/about_us/curriculum_vitae/popper.html

Leo Zagami, a self-confessed Satanist, claimed the black sun-worshipping P2 Freemason lodge gave orders to the Knights of Malta.

This does not mean that the majority of members of the Knights of Malta are Satanists, only certain key people around the top of the hierarchy are.

In any case, the attempt by the IBSSA to control all private security companies in Russia is typical of the fascist P2 freemason lodge who want to create an absolute, centralized world dictatorship. The Russian WSD faction is opposed to centralized monolithic control and is expected to win the power struggle there.

The power struggle elsewhere is also going against the Satanists. In the Middle East, King Salman named his son Mohammed Bin Salman as crown prince. and fired his half-brother Nayef, who is well connected to the US establishment. Since the King Salman who has appeared recently in public is visibly younger than the senile Salman who took over the throne. it is safe to assume he is just a body double, and that the 31-year-old Salman Jr. is now King of Saudi Arabia.

However, Pentagon sources say “This is just a futile attempt to delay the global currency reset.” Furthermore, “Saudi Arabia is isolated by the Russian/Iranian/Qatari cartel, and may soon be forced to sell what little oil it still has for yuan and non-dollars,” the sources say. Right now, only the UAE, Bahrain, Egypt and Israel support the Saudi regime.

The Pentagon sources also say US President Donald Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner was sent on orders of the US military/intelligence establishment to Israel to meet Israeli Prime Minister Benyamin Netanyahu and demand regime change there.

It is no coincidence the Iranian and Hezbollah forces, protected by a new Russian air base, have arrived at the Israeli border to give notice to the criminal Netanyahu regime that it is militarily isolated from the world. The US military is not going to fight to protect the criminal Netanyahu regime, the Pentagon sources say.

A similar move is being made in the Ukraine, where President Petro Poroshenko has been summoned to Washington “to discuss regime change,” the sources say. These moves are part of a worldwide effort to end all conflicts, and prepare the way for a new financial system, they say.

There is also likely to be regime change in the US, the sources continue. Here the latest developments show the entire “blame Russia” campaign by the old establishment is failing. Instead the “Cabal is on its back foot. as Bernie Sanders and wife Jane are under FBI investigation for bank fraud and former attorney general Loretta Lynch is under a Department of Justice probe for obstruction of justice,” the Pentagon sources say.

Trump himself is expected to be eventually removed, since the US requires real regime change, while Trump merely represents the lesser evil faction of the old regime, the sources continue.

In Asia as well, there is a lot going on. Last week South Korean President Moon Jae In had a conversation with his North Korean counterpart Kim Jon Un, where they agreed to unify the Korean Peninsula in the near future, according to Japanese right-wing sources close to the emperor.

This move, like the incipient revival of the Habsburg state, is possible now because the post-1913 Federal Reserve Board-based secret government is collapsing, WDS sources in Asia say.

In Japan, meanwhile, there was a bizzare incident in which the USS Fitzgerald, a state- of-the-art missile destroyer, was rammed by a Philippine-registered cargo ship. Pentagon sources speculate it “may have been a false flag e-hijacking by Israel, unable to use its submarines, to frame North Korea just a few days after the 50th anniversary of the 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty.”

The other possibility, the sources say, is the “the Fitz may have been immobilized by EMP or electronic warfare, forcing the US military to disclose its bases on Mars, suppressed technology, and the secret space programs (SSPs), which is good for humanity.”

There has been definitely some sort of futuristic secret technology deployed in Japan in recent years. The Japanese underground military hardware stockpiles and bases in Kyushu were destroyed recently by some secret weapon. Also, the radiation around Fukushima has all vanished after a huge fleet of unknown aircraft flew over the region, according to Japanese military intelligence.

The fascist regime of Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is also under a growing siege. Newspapers here are reporting as a scandal that Abe used undue influence to help the Okayama Prefecture-based Kake Gakuen educational institution open a new veterinary medicine school.

http://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2017/05/29/reference/brewing-kake-gakuen-scandal-points-alleged-abe-favoritism/

What the newspapers are not reporting is that Kake Gakuen is run by the same people who were involved in Japan’s notorious Unit 731 biological and chemical warfare/human vivisection institute during World War II, and that the “veterinary school” was just a cover for the development of bio and chemical weapons, sources close to the Emperor say.

In other words, instead of mincing words about “influence peddling,” the newspapers should talk about war crimes. In any case, Abe is dying, the sources say, and fundamental regime change – i.e., the removal of the fascists in Japan — is just a matter of time

Azozeo's News-The New DOJ Asset Forfeiture Scheme and How to Stop It
« Reply #58 on: August 02, 2017, 11:33:04 AM »
http://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2017/08/tenther-tuesday-episode-21-the-new-doj-asset-forfeiture-scheme-and-how-to-stop-it/



A couple of weeks ago, at the behest of Jeff Sessions, the U.S. Department of Justice issued a directive meant to ramp up asset forfeiture across the country – even in states that require criminal convictions first.  In this episode of Tenther Tuesday, Michael Boldin and Mike Maharrey talk about asset forfeiture, what the directive does and how states can stop it.

Re: Azozeo's News - Congressional Reform Act of 2017
« Reply #59 on: August 09, 2017, 12:38:50 PM »
https://www.change.org/p/president-trump-congressional-reform-act-of-2017



Congressional Reform Act of 2017
1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.
2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security.
All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.
3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.
4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.
5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.
6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.
7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 3/1/17. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.
I know exactly what you mean. Let me tell you why you’re here. You’re here because you know something. What you know you can’t explain, but you feel it. You’ve felt it your entire life, that there’s something wrong with the world.
