The World: Is There Light At The End Of The Tunnel?

Because many of my articles have been focused on the growing darkness in our world, I'm sometimes labelled an angry-with-the-world, paranoid, fear-mongering negative Nelly. On the surface, it can sure appear that way. After all, I've written about corruption in government, medicine, health, spirituality, food, banking and even the corrupted way of the samurai, so I can see how some may come to the conclusion that I must be one unhappy, miserable party-pooper of a dude. Thankfully (for me anyway), nothing could be further from the truth! I'm actually pragmatically optimistic about the current direction I believe the world is heading and excited about the coming possibilities for us all.

You see, nothing in our universe is truly black or white and easily distinguishable as such. That's not how nature works and if it did, life would be predictably boring and who wants that? Life really is about varying shades of gray. However, the important aspect of those shades is that when it starts the slow cycle from light into a darker form, it's often so subtle that most may not notice anything has changed at all.

Speaking truth is not fear-mongering
In fact, the growing darkness can become downright seductive. Since it's challenging to navigate safely in a dark (unenlightened) environment, it makes it that much easier for the very few (gov't for example) to tell the very many that they will protect them from the dangers lurking in that space in return for full subservience. This then serves to lull the many into a blissful slumber, since that's what you do when it gets dark outside.

There's always the curious minority though who refuse to sleep and instead decide to journey out into the darkened surroundings. At first, all they can do is awkwardly stumble around, bump into things and fall on their face a lot, resulting in much frustration and pain.

...only until the path is lit!
Because of this, many of the curious wanderers lose their previous enthusiasm, choosing to go back to sleep to avoid any further humiliation and pain, with dreams and nightmares serving as their reality. The very few who stubbornly continue forth eventually come across a little nightlight which partially illuminates their path, offering a speck of vindication and encouragement.

As well, they find other adventurers who have found this light and congregate around it. Some will form groups and journey forth in collective strength, while others will choose to navigate independently. The further the journey, the brighter the lights, revealing more and more, until finally the mother of all light circuits is discovered.

When that switch is flipped on, the entire space (country) becomes bathed in daylight, revealing finally what was previously hidden in darkness. But the majority, accustomed to darkness as their status quo, will initially recoil in shock when awakened by this tremendous illumination and seek to avoid or deny it altogether. They will squint, cover their eyes and stumble about awkwardly, while protesting angrily that the lights be turned off so they can see (sleep) once again.

Blinded by the light!
Eventually though, even their eyes become accustomed to the light that isn't going away and then they are able to see clearly as well. This is how great change always occurs. It begins with the few pointing out the darkness to the disbelieving majority, until the light increases to the point that much of that darkness is contrasted by the light, revealing the truth for all the world to see!

There are universal laws of nature that forever brings the world into balance and perfect harmony eventually - the yin & yang principle of all life. When we travel too far down the color spectrum from white to dark gray, which we can call the corruption of nature's balance, it will cycle back in the opposite direction. And it is precisely this that I believe we are presently experiencing.

Harmonious balance of light & dark
GOV'T: For many decades, the very few have been pointing out that the government has grown into a corrupted beast bent on destructive tyranny because it has diverted away from the light and made its way to its present shade of very dark gray. The majority, blinded by the darkness, simply countered that these fringe comments were made by conspiracy-minded fools and quickly ignored them. However, we are clearly witnessing undeniable amounts of illumination upon the previously darkened landscape as scandal after scandal breaks out that the dark government is unable to control or hide from the light of day.

In just the past few months, we've seen major scandals erupt that would have been unthinkable just a few years earlier. Fast & Furious gun-running, Benghazi-Gate, government wiretapping of the Associated Press (AP), trillions in continued taxpayer handouts to Wall Street to prop up the stock markets and the IRS going after conservative groups on behalf of the President finally has the nation of awakening citizens outraged by their out-of-control criminal excesses and are demanding that justice be served!

"I don't see what yer talking about!"
HEALTH: We are also seeing the mass awakening here as well. After poisoning the world unabated for the past 113 years, the world is pushing back at Monsanto and banning them outright from a growing number of countries. In the States, the rallying cry to label or stop them from serving their GMO foods altogether continues to go mainstream and ignite a firestorm of public protest, culminating in the globally coordinated March Against Monsanto Day. This has led many to realize the true value of eating natural and organically produced foods as a means to good health as well.

Further, a light has been cast upon the medical industry as more and more people are finding out that the vaccines, pharmaceutical drugs and prohibitively expensive surgeries may not always be in their best interests and can actually be quite harmful. This is leading to a growing spectrum shift back to much more holistic approaches to well-being, incorporating ages-old eastern medicine practices with the  existing western technology-based model.

The natural economic cycle repeats!
MONEY: Everyday we hear stories of yet another bank or country that has become insolvent due to financial corruption or wild gambling investments that went bust and now needs saving to stave off financial armageddon. In an effort to keep this fact in the dark, the European Union and the Federal Reserve have resorted to creating unprecedented amounts of money out of thin air and papering over the debts as fast as they can to pretend everything is just peachy-keen. Everyone is told to cheer on the great stock bull(bs)market with the absurd promise that this money-printing experiment will stimulate the global economies to spend their way out of debt.

However, the lights are shining powerfully on this as well and it's become obvious that fewer and fewer people believe the lie any longer. This is leading to the  inescapable fall of the present fiat-based monetary system, forcing a reset of all the world's debt as a gold-backed system reemerges once again.

The gold dragon lights the way!
What the above examples show is that the world functions on a natural cyclical basis, with a clear beginning, middle and an end. We can see the beginning as being a lighter shade of white, the middle gray and the end very dark gray or as close to black as possible. Therefore, in our present cycle, we are close to the end of the very dark gray period. This is why there is currently so much upheaval, corruption, greed, instability and yes, darkness in the world. We are merely passing from the cycle of night and back to a new morning's light of day.

Rather than fall into a state of despair over the catastrophic global events that are coming at us with quickening ferocity, we may want to instead see this as proof that the dark cycle is well on its way out and take actions in preparation of the transition back to light. You see, the darkness never just gives in and allows the morning to come without a fight. No, it fights with all its might to keep things very dark. But in order to do so, it is forced to commit even more openly heinous acts in a desperate attempt to maintain control. That's why we see so many scandals and corruptions bursting forth almost everyday now. The darkness is being exposed by the oncoming light, which will soon overwhelm it completely and thus a new cycle is ushered in.

A new journey about to begin!
This is why I believe that shining a light on the darkness in the world is actually a very good thing as it signals that the universal laws of nature are taking us forward to yet another new cycle with a clean slate from which to begin. It is then up to each of us whether we choose to learn from the past so we can keep the light shining upon us for a full day's cycle or conversely, whether we give in to the seductions of the night and bring that about prematurely. I, for one, believe we become further enlightened with each passing cycle and so I view myself as a "hope-monger" rather than a pessimistic "fear-monger" any day. How about you?

America's Back! Or Is It Just The Stock Market?

Did ya hear? The economy is back! No, check that, it's roaring like a hungry, untamed beast! You want proof? Why, just look around, the signs are seemingly everywhere. The DOW has skyrocketed to a new all-time record above 18,000.

Real estate, which collapsed only five short years ago, is once again paying out jackpots and being bid up by frenzied speculators hopping aboard the pleasure boat of unlimited opportunities. Yes, glory days are here again, folks! Cue the banjos or whatever it is they play when euphoric times are afoot.

What, still skeptical? Well, I can't really blame you since this does sound suspiciously familiar. In the words of the ever quotable George Bush "fool me once, shame on - shame on you, fool me - can't get fooled again."

Er right, but we know what he means, well sort of anyway. So it makes sense why we may want to be cautious this time around, especially since the vast majority haven't recovered from getting burnt to a crisp after the last few "glory days" fizzled

The greatest proof being presented that this time is really different and good times are here is that the fear trade of gold & silver prices have tanked. And I mean tanked bad during the past two years of this seemingly unstoppable economic "recovery" locomotive.

Record unemployment: Gov't idea of  recovery
Gold has plummeted from 2011 highs of $1900 oz to $1160 today and silver has been bludgeoned even worse, $49 down to $15 during that time. Yowch! It appears all those Austrian economists (sound money advocates) who have been screaming from the rooftops (like this author) "the end is near for the US dollar and Euro" must have a lot of egg on their (my) faces right about now.

After all, even as we've been pointing out what should be obvious: amassing greater and greater debt,  printing unlimited amounts of funny money to support that debt, then continually raising the debt ceiling to spend even more is a recipe for disaster, the markets have responded by rocketing ever upwards, defying the law of sanity itself!

Economic numbers reveal joblessness and welfare rolls are increasing, markets move up. Inflation moves up, markets move up. GDP slides downward, markets move up. The Federal Reserve Committee announces $85 billion per month in further quantitative easing (QE) on top of the previous trillions thrown at the failing banks, the markets cheer and move up. The debt ceiling keeps getting surpassed, markets move up. States and counties default on bonds, resulting in massive layoffs and theft of worker pensions, the markets move up.

Less than sturdy White House of cards
Over in the Eurozone, member nations default one after another and the markets move up. A desperate Japan announces a "brilliant" unlimited QE plan to create horrific inflation in the hopes of reviving its hopelessly crippled country, the markets move up. The LIBOR banker interest rate rigging scandal erupts, the markets  yawn and move up. HSBC admits knowingly laundering $100s of billions  in drug cartel and terrorist money, the markets move up.

And what's the best evidence of all that the economic recovery is now bulletproof? Cyprus's banking system collapses, new banker bail-in laws are hastily crafted to save them by stealing trillions from depositors, and the markets respond "awesome, dudes, that's the best news ever!" And up the market go. That's a lot of "pink elephants" being ignored, but perhaps in this Wizard Of Oz economic paradigm, the world can simply close its eyes, click its heels twice and make them go away!

"Welcome to America: where ignorance is bliss"
Maybe an apology is in order for the esteemed leaders some of us so vehemently criticized as monetary lunatics. I mean, yes, during Obama's first term, he and his team increased the U.S. deficit by $8 trillion, more debt and spending than all U.S. Presidents combined in 236 years! That's quite a breathtaking feat.

And to think we doubted his intentions for handing out tens of trillions in taxpayer dollars to failing banks and  corporations as punishment for their misdeeds. I'm sure they'll think twice about continuing to commit crimes in the future, since Obama vowed if they get caught again, he will be forced to punish them with even more money.

It's good to know the Prez has got our backs, even when he does it behind our backs. Ah, maybe I'm just being too cynical. As Hillary Clinton says "what difference at this point does it make?" And the crickets keep chirping across the national landscape.

In the land of Oz-bama anything goes!
In the olden days, prior to 1971, when money was actually backed somewhat by gold, the free-wheeling spending and corporate giveaways would have been deemed unthinkably unaffordable, guaranteed suicide!

But in the Land of Oz, basic math has been banned so Cowardly Lion Obama and Scarecrow Bernanke are hailed as economic saviors for making decisions disastrous to the nation. Once again, in the words of the curious philosopher G. Bush "Mission accomplished!" 

However, in the old fashioned defense of sound money, the nation, much less the world, has never seen this level of monetary printing backed by absolutely nothing but faith so there is no precedent to compare it to. The more they do it, the more the markets get addicted, responding by driving prices and euphoria higher.

The wizard of debt!
Is this the new "normal?" Well, it sure seems that far anyway. So what are we to do now? Well, for those prepared to pierce the veil of illusion, there are endless clues littered across the economic landscape for them to see.

After every market bubble pop, the experts, who previously shouted "this time really is different, the world has changed, ignore the past, this is the new normal, don't be left out, buy, buy, buy!," reverse course and cry "it was so obvious that irrational exuberance caused this. And (clears throat) what I really said before was to be cautious and very selective in that overheated market. Didn't you all get my memo?" 
Screaming "buy!" prior
to the bubble burst in '08. 

Uh, no we didn't because there was no memo. So its best to use those esteemed government economist clowns as contrary indicators because if they are telling you to buy, you can bet they are the very ones selling you a big bag full 'o shit!

Are we about to experience the mother of all economic meltdowns the world has ever seen? Well, if not I'd say we are very close and the ice is getting very thin. Listen, is that the sounds of cracking ice we hear? Let's be old fuddy-duddies for a bit and use our basic reasoning-logic skills instead of blind faith as we've been told.

This way, we can see all the "pink elephants" the government wishes we'd ignore, while keeping in mind what has happened throughout history as our guide, for we know the past predictably remains prologue. This allows us a certain foresight into the future for what is to come and  how to prepare accordingly. 

The government's economic spinmeisters continue to lead the charge, spinning every piece of negative news into a positive, even to the point of faking numbers that counter their conclusions. One of their present conclusions is that the more millions of citizens the government can herd into its Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), the better it is for the economy.

How, pray tell? "It's obvious," they smugly proclaim. "When poor and unemployed people are given lots of free government money, they go out and buy lots of stuff, thus stimulating the economic recovery. So the more people on welfare, the better. Duh!"

"Come get your SNAP!"
And what a success it is with over 50 million Americans dining at that "all you can eat" buffet. What the government conveniently fails to tell us is where the heck all  that money comes from to pay for all of their generosity. Two sources really. They create it out of thin air by keeping the printing presses cranked full speed and by stealing it from the ever-shrinking taxpayer base, you know the minority of citizens who actually still have jobs! Recipe for disaster? Don't ya know it!

Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain and go back to sleep! Given all the above, how could anyone with even a modicum of active brain synapses still firing believe the clumsy lie that we are in the midst of the greatest economic prosperity the world has ever seen? Well, it's actually because of the above that everyone has been lulled into the present Pollyannic view that no matter what calamity befalls us, the captains of the economic ship know what they are doing, even as water pours into the hull and the ship continues to sink. 

"Full steam ahead!"
"Forget the lifeboats and quit being such a 'boat is half-full of water' party-pooper. Can't ya hear the band playing on-deck? The party's just getting started!" The party continues, but the band plays ever louder in order to silence the screams of those trapped and drowning below deck. Meanwhile, even more suckers jump aboard the sinking ship of fools on its final destination down to Davy Jones' locker! 

I know, you may be thinking "yeah, but the sound money folks have been saying that for a long time and yet, look how high the stock market has gone up anyway. What's going to change that anytime soon?" Very good question and again, as history has so clearly revealed, it's at the point when the majority finally capitulates and says "hey, if ya can't beat 'em, join 'em" is when the disastrous turning point is within reach. 

The evidence! The stock market just surpassed 15,000 as the government claims  home foreclosures have slowed down to "manageable" levels, signalling a new bull market in stocks and real estate. But, wait a minute. With so many "pink elephants" out there, how can the stock and real estate markets continue their uncontested ascent so easily? Well, two reasons really, both of which virtually guaranteed a rise above 15,000.

2013: setup for another housing pop?
First: The Fed continues to pump $85 billion a month into the Wall Street investment banking sector to artificially prop up the "house of cards" and provide them liquidity to make risky bets in the stock and bond derivative markets on the taxpayers' dime.

Second: Because of virtually zero percent bank interest rates, depositors have been forced to gamble their savings just to keep up with the ravages of inflation, so they've been herded into the markets with seemingly no other choice. All the while, mainstream media reminds the people to throw caution to the wind and recklessly pour their savings into the markets or miss the "greatest investing opportunity in history." Yes, greed is a powerful motivator!

And suddenly everybody is an investing genius. Plumbers, hairdressers, cab drivers  and your pet parakeet offer up tips to anyone within earshot on flipping houses or how to day-trade Apple stock like a pro. Sound familiar? Yes, this is exactly what was going on just prior to the internet stock implosion of 2001 and the real estate market bubble pop of 2008. Mere months before their predictable collapses, the mantra was "this time is different!" But it wasn't, not by a long-shot.

Wall Street pumped full of hot air!
Perhaps the greatest sign of things to come occurred the second week of April 2013. Out of nowhere, the gold and silver paper-traded markets collapsed more than 20% in just two days with no economic news to justify such a shocking global sell-off.

The government's mainstream media cheered on the crash, claiming this was incontrovertible proof that the "Chicken Littles," who were annoyingly shouting "the sky is falling," had finally given up on holding precious metals as a safe haven asset. "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em" appeared to be the reason, but as the days progressed and though the media spun their webs of deceit ever thicker, the truth began to emerge.

Because the metals are traded in the form of paper certificates run by entities such as the LBMA (London Bullion Market Assn) and COMEX (Commodities Exchange), which many critics unaffectionately nicknamed CRIMEX, no actual physical metal changes hands when someone buys or sells through these global exchanges. The only thing that really changes hands are paper ETF (exchange-traded funds) receipts which are supposed to be backed by the metals in COMEX vaults.

But, guess what? President Nixon closed the gold window in 1971 because the United States obviously no longer had all the gold in Fort Knox they were supposed to have. That's the moment the US dollar became a currency backed by absolutely nothing but faith and deceit.

The mother of all pyramid schemes - stay away!
The COMEX functions in the same criminal way, selling many times more paper ETFs than metal they actually hold in their vaults. This means most ETFs, just like the US dollar, are not backed by anything other than blind faith that all the gold is still there - even though it's not!

The U.S. government has been able to manipulate and suppress the prices of the metals by allowing their banking agents, JP Morgan, Goldman Sachs, HSBC etc., to fraudulently naked short as much of the metal ETFs as is necessary to give the illusion that the US dollar remains a strong global currency, which it obviously is not.

When gold & silver prices remain stable, (read: low against the dollar) it signals to the world the dollar's strength. But when the metals' rise, it signals the opposite. Since 2000, the stock market has risen about 40% as the dollar's value has dropped much more than that. Gold and silver, on the other hand, have shockingly risen as much as 800% in dollar terms, which is a twenty-fold rise in comparison to the DOW JONES!

Russia's gold buying spree!
This is the reason the government is forced to do what they can to crush the metals' prices as it exposes the ongoing collapse of the US dollar and the stock markets connected to it. When adjusted for inflation (theft of the people's purchasing power by gov't) over the past thirteen years, the stock market has actually gone nowhere, so the so-called bull-market is really nothing more than a whole lotta bull-shit! And guess what, the world has started to awaken to that fact.

In the aftermath of the April 2013 government-sponsored smack-down of gold and silver ETF prices, citizens the world over began to do the exact opposite of what was intended. Because COMEX and LBMA vaults have little actual metal in them to satisfy delivery if too many buyers chooses to "cash in" a metals ETF for the real thing, the government tanks the price to help keep the exchanges from defaulting. This keeps the ponzi scheme going, since the vast majority of ETF investors have been fooled into settling for cash rather than metal.

The banker's "oh shit!" moment just hit them!
More importantly, extreme price drops typically cause panic-selling of the physical metals too. The criminal exchanges then scoop up those metals on the cheap, then turn around and deliver to investors who refuse to settle for anything but the real thing.

In that respect, it works the same way banks do. If even 5% of customers decided to withdraw all the money in their accounts by cash, the banks would go belly up in an instant since they don't have much in their vaults either. It's also why banks encourage customers to use debit or credit cards to make purchases in lieu of withdrawing cash because it keeps the ponzi-scheme alive!

China's 'Gold Rush' is on!
As said earlier, the system we are presently suffering through is an illusory one based on fraud, deceit and bad faith! So, getting back to the recent smack-down, rather than capitulate and panic-sell, the world began buying the physical metals in an frenzied stampede that quickly wiped out available global supplies of it.

People realized finally that ETF gold and silver, traded in unlimited quantities because there is next to zero physical metal backing them, are not the same as the actual very limited quantities of gold and silver that they can purchase and take home with them.

During the smack-down, it was reported that Chinese housewives, aka "aunties" purchased over 300 tons of gold ($16 billion worth) in less than a week and have continued that pace as supplies quickly ran dry in China's massive jewelry districts. The rest of Asia, Europe and the Middle East reported similar buying as well. Just like that, inventories of gold and silver were wiped out by the frenzied buying the world over, stripping the COMEX, LBMA and other member vaults of what little metal they had left to keep their ruse going. 

This is what real money looks like!
In the U.S. retail bullion market, savvy investors traded so many US dollars for every piece of gold and silver they could get their hands on that there is currently a four to eight week wait to purchase anything and US silver and gold eagle coin premiums have skyrocketed.

Though the fraudulent ETF price of silver was trading at around $24, the price to actually buy a US Silver Eagle shot up to around $32, if they were available at all - roughly 30% above what the Crimex would have us believe they're presently worth! This clearly shows that the government went way too far this time by grossly underestimating its people, who, after being fooled for so long, have collectively awoken and decided they "can't get fooled again!" 

Time to tune out the lies!
The writing's on the wall and the government knows their fraud has been uncovered, but their only recourse has been to continue shorting the ETFs in a brain-dead attempt to scare its people and the world's public to reverse course and sell, but that's just not happening.

All this is doing is encouraging them to continue buying even more of the real thing at these artificially low levels, bypassing the  irreparably broken and corrupt paper system altogether. Sadly, the rest who stubbornly continue riding the stock market dollar casino bullet-train, will realize too late that there are no brakes as it careens off a cliff, wiping out everyone aboard once again.

Whether you believe it or not, the signs are all there: the world is once again returning to a gold and silver-backed currency as it always has after every failed attempt in history to subvert it. In case you missed it last year, when Ron Paul asked Mr. Bernanke whether gold was money, he replied "No, it's a precious metal."

When Ron Paul pressed further, asking him why banks hold gold, caught off guard like a deer caught in the headlights of an oncoming truck, Bernanke hilariously blurted "Well, it's a tradition. Long term tradition." Bear in mind, this guy is in charge of the nation's financial future.

"Who needs gold when I'll give
you all this paper for free?"
Do you really want to entrust it to this mindless twit? I mean, since when have banks been so sentimental as to do anything simply for the sake of upholding a tradition? Never! The only tradition they honor is the one to steal, steal and steal again! In fact, the major world central banks have been loading up with real metals in preparation for very, very high prices in the near future as they know the physical prices are going to completely disconnect from the criminally suppressed paper prices soon.

And no, they're not doing it to honor tradition, but rather to make a few thousand metric tons of profit instead! You can bet this is why they are pounding the media airwaves with the message "don't buy gold or silver. They're not real money. Stay in stocks and bonds. They're much safer and look how high they're going!" Remember, in order to succeed financially, do as the super-rich do and not what they tell you to do, unless you actually like being left holding bags of manure.

Why the Chinese really are smarter.
They want gold and the U.S. doesn't! 

The Chinese government though, has been by far the most aggressive buyer, importing over 300 metric tons of physical metal through its Hong Kong exchanges in March and another 400 tons in April! In contrast, most western exchange vaults are becoming completely depleted by this flow of gold and silver from west to east.

Who's going to win the currency war? I'll give you a hint, it won't be the west as China and Russia know the U.S. is economically kaput  and are making strong moves to replace the US dollar as the world's reserve currency with a gold-backed one that they will control!

So, it's clear that you'll want to exit that toxic currency as quickly as possible and begin accumulating real assets, silver & gold, as the rest of the world is presently doing. It's advisable to buy some from local bullion dealers and hold some of it safely in your personal possession as you would cash, while storing some of it in private, allocated metals storage vaults for your safekeeping.

Keeping your money out of harm's way
Having a portion of your metals stored abroad isn't complicated and can protect your wealth from the onrushing economic instability we're currently facing. Vault storage accounts can be set up online in about twenty minutes, are as simple as opening an online bank or brokerage account and function very similarly, except for one very important difference. You are actually buying and storing real physical gold or silver in your account instead of paper or electronic currency that can be wiped out in a nano-second.

Exit their system before this happens, not after!
In fact, bullion accounts can be linked to your bank account for transferring money between them. The advantage of this is if your bank goes under, it does not affect your storage account in any way. You'd just have to link a new account to your vault account.

Two reputable vault companies out of many are BullionVault and GoldMoney, both of which I have experience with. With each, you can buy metals from within their fully allocated and insured systems, which means they can only buy or sell you metals they actually have in their audited vaults - no paper ETFs. You also have the choice of storage in Hong Kong, Singapore, London or Zurich for monthly fees lower than most bank safe deposit boxes.

And when you want to sell some of your metals or take delivery of them, the proceeds can be transferred to your bank account within a day or two or the metals sent to you anywhere in the world you choose, giving you great flexibility. Just try getting through TSA with a few bars of gold or silver if you want to take your metals abroad. Ain't gonna happen. As has been happening with too much regularity, precious metals are being confiscated and its owners sometimes detained as possible terror suspects.

Escape before it's too late!
If you're just starting out with gold or silver though, it's enough to simply buy a few coins here and there to get you acquainted with the idea of sound money once again. And unlike derivative assets like the dollar, stocks, CDs, IRA, 401k, etc., the metals have no counter-party risk.

What this means is because you have possession of the asset, no opposing party can decide to take them away from you at their whim, nor will their value drop to zero like most paper assets eventually do.

In closing, it's become clear that big economic changes are imminently upon us, requiring careful thought and action in response to them. The decisions each of us make and the paths taken will have tremendous impact on our lives, ultimately separating those who financially thrive and those who financially die. With eyes wide open, may your decisions be good ones.

"Just follow the yellow brick road!"

Monsanto: Planting Seeds of Death, Disease & Despair!

Of all the mega-corps running amok, Monsanto has consistently outperformed its rivals, earning the crown as "most evil corporation on Earth!" Not content to simply rest upon its throne of death, atop a mountain of rotting corpses, it remains focused on newer, more scientifically innovative ways to harm the planet and its people.

As true champions of evil, they won't stop until...well, until they're stopped! But what is Monsanto and how did they get to be so obscenely evil in the first place? I think that's the best place to start this journey, so grab a few non-GMO snacks or beverages and let's go for a ride into the deep, murky sewers of their dark past.

Satan's first family?
1901: The company is founded by John Francis Queeny, a member of the Knights of Malta, a thirty year pharmaceutical veteran married to Olga Mendez Monsanto, for which Monsanto Chemical Works is named. The company's first product is chemical saccharin, sold to Coca-Cola as an artificial sweetener.

Even then, the government knew saccharin was poisonous and sued to stop its manufacture but lost in court, thus opening the Monsanto Pandora's Box to begin poisoning the world through the soft drink. 

"The real thing" - pesticides!
1920s: Monsanto expands into industrial chemicals and drugs, becoming the world's largest maker of  aspirin, acetylsalicyclic acid, (toxic of course). This is also the time when things began to go horribly wrong for the planet in a hurry with the introduction of  their polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs).

"PCBs were considered an industrial wonder chemical, an oil that wouldn't burn, impervious to degradation and had almost limitless applications. Today PCBs are considered one of the gravest chemical threats on the planet. Widely used as lubricants, hydraulic fluids, cutting oils, waterproof coatings and liquid sealants, are potent carcinogens and have been implicated in reproductive, developmental and immune system disorders. The world's center of PCB manufacturing was Monsanto's plant on the outskirts of East St. Louis, Illinois, which has the highest rate of fetal death and immature births in the state."(1) 

Even though PCBs were eventually banned after fifty years for causing such devastation, it is still present in just about all animal and human blood and tissue cells across the globe. Documents introduced in court later showed Monsanto was fully aware of the deadly effects, but criminally hid them from the public to keep the PCB gravy-train going full speed!

1930s: Created its first hybrid seed corn and expands into detergents, soaps, industrial cleaning products, synthetic rubbers and plastics. Oh yes, all toxic of course!

Monsanto's version of "goodwill to all men."
1940s: They begin research on uranium to be used for the Manhattan Project's first atomic bomb, which would later be dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, killing hundreds of thousands of Japanese, Korean and US Military servicemen and poisoning millions more.

The company continues its unabated killing spree by creating pesticides for agriculture containing deadly dioxin, which poisons the food and water supplies. It was later discovered Monsanto failed to disclose that dioxin was used in a wide range of their products because doing so would force them to acknowledge that it had created an environmental Hell on Earth.

Monsanto's vision of a toxic future
1950s: Closely aligned with The Walt Disney Company, Monsanto creates several attractions at Disney's Tomorrowland, espousing the glories of chemicals and plastics. Their "House of the Future" is constructed entirely of toxic plastic that is not biodegradable as they had asserted. What, Monsanto lied? I'm shocked!

"After attracting a total of 20 million visitors from 1957 to 1967, Disney finally tore the house down, but discovered it would not go down without a fight. According to Monsanto Magazine, wrecking balls literally bounced off the glass-fiber, reinforced polyester material. Torches, jackhammers, chain saws and shovels did not work. Finally, choker cables were used to squeeze off parts of the house bit by bit to be trucked away."(2)
Monsanto's Disneyfied vision of the future
1960s: Monsanto, along with chemical partner-in-crime DOW Chemical, produces dioxin-laced Agent Orange for use in the U.S.'s Vietnam invasion. The results? Over 3 million people contaminated, a half-million Vietnamese civilians dead, a half-million Vietnamese babies born with birth defects and thousands of U.S. military veterans suffering or dying from its effects to this day!
Monsanto is hauled into court again and internal memos show they knew the deadly effects of dioxin in Agent Orange when they sold it to the government. Outrageously though, Monsanto is allowed to present their own "research" that concluded dioxin was safe and posed no negative health concerns whatsoever. Satisfied, the bought and paid for courts side with Monsanto and throws the case out. Afterwards, it comes to light that Monsanto lied about the findings and their real research concluded that dioxin kills very effectively.
A later internal memo released in a 2002 trial admitted "that the evidence proving the persistence of these compounds and their universal presence as residues in the environment is beyond question ... the public and legal pressures to eliminate them to prevent global contamination are inevitable. The subject is snowballing. Where do we go from here? The alternatives: go out of business; sell the hell out of them as long as we can and do nothing else; try to stay in business; have alternative products."(3)

Monsanto aided Hitler's I.G. Farben exterminators
Monsanto partners with I.G. Farben, makers of toxic Bayer aspirin and Hitler's go-to chemical manufacturer that exterminated millions with it Zyklon-B gas during World War II. Together, the companies use their collective expertise in genocide to introduce aspartame, another extremely deadly neurotoxin, into the food supply. When questions surface regarding the toxicity of saccharin, Monsanto exploits this opportunity to introduce yet another of its deadly poisons onto an unsuspecting public. 

1970s: Monsanto partner, G.D. Searle, produces over a hundred faked internal studies which claim aspartame to be safe, while the FDA's own scientific research clearly reveals that aspartame causes tumors and massive holes in the brains of rats, before killing them. The FDA initiates a grand jury investigation into G.D. Searle for "knowingly misrepresenting findings and concealing material facts and making false statements" in regard to aspartame safety.

Coke Kills!
During this time, Searle strategically taps prominent Washington insider Donald Rumsfeld, who served as Secretary of Defense during the Gerald Ford and George W. Bush  presidencies, to become CEO. The corporation's primary goal is to have Rumsfeld utilize his political influence and vast experience in the killing business to grease the FDA to play ball with them. 

A few months later, Samuel Skinner receives "an offer he can't refuse," withdraws from the investigation and resigns his post at the U.S. Attorney's Office to go work for Searle's law firm. This mob tactic stalls the case just long enough for the statute of limitation to run out and the grand jury investigation is abruptly and conveniently dropped. 

NutraSweet's war against your health

1980s: Amid indisputable research that reveals the toxic effects of aspartame and as then FDA commissioner Dr. Jere Goyan was about to sign a petition into law keeping it off the market, Donald Rumsfeld calls Ronald Reagan for a favor the day after he takes office. Reagan fires the uncooperative Goyan and appoints Dr. Arthur Hayes Hull to head the FDA, who then quickly tips the scales in Searle's favor and NutraSweet is approved for human consumption in dried products.

This becomes sadly ironic since Reagan, a known jelly bean and candy enthusiast, later suffers from Alzheimers during his second term, one of the many horrific effects of aspartame consumption.

Searle's real goal though was to have aspartame approved as a soft drink sweetener since exhaustive studies revealed that at temperatures exceeding 85 degrees Fahrenheit, it "breaks down into known toxins Diketopiperazines (DKP), methyl (wood) alcohol, and formaldehyde."(4), becoming many times deadlier than its powdered form!

The National Soft Drink Association (NSDA) is initially in an uproar, fearing future lawsuits from consumers permanently injured or killed by drinking the poison. When Searle is able to show that liquid aspartame, though incredibly deadly, is much more addictive than crack cocaine, the NSDA is convinced that skyrocketing profits from the sale of soft drinks laced with aspartame would easily offset any future liability. With that, corporate greed wins and the unsuspecting soft drink consumers pay for it with damaged healths.
Coke leads the way once again (remember saccharin?) and begins poisoning Diet Coke drinkers with aspartame in 1983. As expected, sales skyrocket as millions become hopelessly addicted and sickened by the sweet poison served in a can. The rest of the soft drink industry likes what it sees and quickly follows suit, conveniently forgetting all about their initial reservations that aspartame is a deadly chemical. There's money to be made, lots of it and that's all that really matters to them anyway!

Monsanto's method of population control
In 1985, undaunted by the swirl of corruption and multiple accusations of fraudulent research undertaken by Searle, Monsanto purchases the company and forms a new aspartame subsidiary called NutraSweet Company. When multitudes of independent scientists and researchers continue to warn about aspartame's toxic effects, Monsanto goes on the offensive, bribing the National Cancer Institute and providing their own fraudulent papers to get the NCI to claim that formaldehyde does not cause cancer so that aspartame can stay on the market.

The known effects of aspartame ingestion are: "mania, rage, violence, blindness, joint-pain, fatigue, weight-gain, chest-pain, coma, insomnia, numbness, depression, tinnitus, weakness, spasms, irritability, nausea, deafness, memory-loss, rashes, dizziness, headaches, seizures, anxiety, palpitations, fainting, cramps, diarrhoea, panic, burning in the mouth. Diseases triggered/mimmicked include diabetes, MS, lupus, epilepsy, Parkinson's, tumours, miscarriage, infertility, fibromyalgia, infant death, Alzheimer's... Source : U.S. Food & Drug Administration.(5)

FDA = Monsanto!
Further, 80% of complaints made to the FDA regarding food additives are about aspartame, which is now in over 5,000 products including diet and non-diet sodas and sports drinks, mints, chewing gum, frozen desserts, cookies, cakes, vitamins, pharmaceuticals, milk drinks, instant teas, coffees, yogurt, baby food and many, many more!(6) Read labels closely and do not buy anything that contains this horrific killer!

Amidst all the death and disease, FDA stooge Arthur Hull resigns under a cloud of corruption and is immediately hired by Searle's public relations firm as a senior scientific consultant. No, that's not a joke! Monsanto, the FDA and many government health regulatory agencies have become one and the same! It seems the only prerequisite for becoming an FDA commissioner is that they spend time at either Monsanto or one of the pharmaceutical cartel's organized crime corps.

1990s: Monsanto spends millions defeating state and federal legislation that disallows the corporation of evil from continuing to dump dioxins, pesticides and other cancer-causing poisons into drinking water systems. Regardless, they are sued countless times for causing disease in their plant workers, the people in surrounding areas and birth defects in babies.

Monsanto: Monopoly on Evil!
With their coffins full from the massive billions profits, the $100 million dollar settlements are considered the low cost of doing business and thanks to the FDA, Congress and White House, business remains very good. So good that Monsanto is sued for giving radioactive iron to 829 pregnant women for a study to see what would happen to them. 

In 1994, the FDA once again criminally approves Monsanto's latest monstrosity, the Synthetic Bovine Growth Hormone (rBGH), produced from a genetically modified E. coli bacteria, despite obvious outrage from the scientific community of its dangers. Of course, Monsanto claims that diseased pus milk, full of antibiotics and hormones is not only safe, but actually good for you!

Poison pus milk only Americans will drink!
Worse yet, dairy companies who refuse to use this toxic cow pus and label their products as "rBGH-free" are sued by Monsanto, claiming it gives them an unfair advantage over competitors that did. In essence, what Monsanto was saying is "yeah, we know rBGH makes people sick, but it's not alright that you advertise it's not in your products."

The following year, the diabolical company begins producing GMO crops that are tolerant to their toxic herbicide Roundup. Roundup-ready canola oil (rapeseed), soybeans, corn and BT cotton begin hitting the market, advertised as being safer, healthier alternatives to their organic non-GMO rivals. Apparently, the propaganda worked as today over 80% of canola on the market is their GMO variety. 

A few things you definitely want to avoid in your diet are GMO soy, corn, wheat and canola oil, despite the fact that many "natural" health experts claim the latter to be a healthy oil. It's not, but you'll find it polluting many products on grocery store shelves.

If you have any of these company's poisons
in your kitchen, call Hazmat immediately!

Because these GM crops have been engineered to 'self-pollinate,' they do not need  nature or bees to do that for them. It's like having sex with yourself to make a baby. Yes, Monsanto wants to take the fun out of that too. But all kidding aside, there is a very dark side agenda to this and that is to wipe out the world's bee population.

Monsanto knows that birds and especially bees, throw a wrench into their monopoly due to their ability to pollinate plants, thus naturally creating foods outside of the company's "full domination control agenda." When bees attempt to pollinate a GM plant or flower, it gets poisoned and dies. In fact, the bee colony collapse was recognized and has been going on since GM crops were first introduced.

To counter the accusations that they deliberately caused this ongoing genocide of bees, Monsanto devilishly buys out Beeologics, the largest bee research firm that was dedicated to studying the colony collapse phenomenon and whose extensive research named the monster as the primary culprit! After that, it's "bees, what bees? Everything's just dandy!" Again, I did not make this up, but wish I had!

Monsanto gunning down its rivals
During the mid-90s, they decide to reinvent their evil company as one focused on controlling the world's food supply through artificial, biotechnology means to preserve the Roundup cash-cow from losing market-share in the face of competing, less-toxic herbicides. You see, Roundup is so toxic that it wipes out non-GMO crops, insects, animals, human health and the environment at the same time. How very efficient!

Because Roundup-ready crops are engineered to be toxic pesticides masquerading as food, they have been banned in the EU, but not in America! Is there any connection between that and the fact that Americans, despite the high cost and availability of healthcare, are collectively the sickest people in the world? Of course not!

Seeds of death and despair
As was Monsanto's plan from the beginning, all non-Monsanto crops would be destroyed, forcing farmers the world over to use only its toxic terminator seeds. And Monsanto made sure farmers who refused to come into the fold were driven out of business or sued when windblown terminator seeds poisoned organic farms.

This gave the company a virtual monopoly as terminator seed crops and Roundup worked hand in glove with each other as GMO crops could not survive in a non-chemical environment so farmers were forced to buy both.

Their next step was to spend billions globally buying up as many seed companies as possible and transitioning them into terminator seed companies in an effort to wipe out any rivals and eliminate organic foods off the face of the earth. In Monsanto's view, all foods must be under their full control and genetically modified or they are not safe to eat!
They pretend to be shocked that their critics in the scientific community question whether crops genetically modified with the genes of diseased pigs, cows, spiders, monkeys, fish, vaccines and viruses are healthy to eat. The answer to that question is obviously a very big "no way!"

You'd think the company would be so proud of their GMO foods that they'd serve them to their employees, but they don't. In fact, Monsanto has banned GM foods from being served in their own employee cafeterias. Monsanto lamely responded "we believe in choice." What they really means is "we don't want to kill the help." 
Monsanto wants to put you to sleep permanently!
It's quite okay though to force-feed poor nations and Americans these modified monstrosities as a means to end starvation since dead people don't need to eat! I'll bet the thought on most peoples' minds these days is that Monsanto is clearly focused on eugenics and genocide, as opposed to providing foods that will sustain the world. As in Monsanto partner Disney's Sleeping Beauty, the wicked witch gives the people the poisoned GMO apple that puts them to sleep forever!

2000s: By this time Monsanto controls the largest share of the global GMO market. In turn, the US gov't spends hundreds of millions to fund aerial spraying of Roundup, causing massive environmental devastation. Fish and animals by the thousands die within days of spraying as respiratory ailments and cancer deaths in humans spike tremendously. But this is all considered an unusual coincidence so the spraying continues. If you thought Monsanto and the FDA were one and the same, well you can add the gov't to that sorry list now.

Mobbed up with Obama: Monsanto's
"stay out of jail forever" card!
The monster grows bigger: Monsanto merges with Pharmacia & Upjohn, then separates from its chemical business and rebrands itself as an agricultural company. Yes, that's right, a chemical company whose products have devastated the environment, killed millions of people and wildlife over the years now wants us to believe they produce safe and nutritious foods that won't kill people any longer. That's an extremely hard-sell, which is why they continue to grow bigger through mergers and secret partnerships. 

Because rival DuPont is too large a corporation to be allowed to merge with, they instead form a stealth partnership where each agrees to drop existing patent lawsuits against one another and begin sharing GMO technologies for mutual benefit. In layman's terms, together they would be far too powerful and politically connected for anything to stop them from owning a virtual monopoly on agriculture; "control the food supply & you control the people!" 

The Supreme Court: Monsanto prostitute
Not all is rosy as the monster is repeatedly sued for $100s of millions for causing illness, infant deformities and death by illegally dumping all manner of PCBs into ground water, and continually lying about products safety - you know, business as usual.

The monster often perseveres and proves difficult to slay as it begins filing frivolous suits against farmers it claims infringe on their terminator seed patents. In virtually all cases, unwanted seeds are windblown onto farmers' lands by neighboring terminator-seeded farms. Not only do these horrendous seeds destroy the organic farmers' crops, the lawsuits drive them into bankruptcy, while the Supreme Court overturns lower court rulings and sides with Monsanto each time. 

At the same time, the monster begins filing patents on breeding techniques for pigs, claiming animals bred any way remotely similar to their patent would grant them ownership. So loose was this patent filing that it became obvious they wanted to claim all pigs bred throughout the world would infringe upon their patent.

Feeding despair, one nation at a time.
The global terrorism spreads to India as over 100,000 farmers who are bankrupted by GMO crop failure, commit suicide by drinking Roundup so their families will be eligible for death insurance payments. In response, the monster takes advantage of the situation by alerting the media to a new project to assist small Indian farmers by donating the very things that caused crop failures in the country in the first place! Forbes then names Monsanto "company of the year." Sickening, but true.

More troubling is that Whole Foods, the corporation that brands itself as organic, natural and eco-friendly is proven to be anything but. They refuse to support Proposition 37, California's GMO-labeling measure that Monsanto and its GMO-brethren eventually helped to defeat.

The unholy alliance
Why? Because Whole Foods has been in bed with Monsanto for a long time, secretly stuffing its shelves with overpriced, fraudulently advertized "natural & organic" crap loaded with GMOs, pesticides, rBGH, hormones and antibiotics. So, of course they don't want mandatory labelling as that would expose them as the Whole Frauds and Whore Foods that they really are!

However, when over twenty biotech-friendly companies including WalMart, Pepsico and ConAgra recently met with FDA in favor of mandatory labelling laws, this after fighting tooth and nail to defeat Prop 37, Whole Foods sees an opportunity to save face and becomes the first grocery chain to announce mandatory labelling of their GMO 2018! Uh, thanks for nothing, Whore.
And if you think its peers have suddenly grown a conscience, think again. They are simply reacting to the public's outcry over the defeat of Prop 37 by crafting deceptive GMO-labelling laws to circumvent any real change, thus keeping the status quo intact.

To add insult to world injury, Monsanto and their partners in crime Archer Daniels Midland, Sodexo and Tyson Foods write and sponsor The Food Safety Modernization Act of 2009: HR 875. This criminal "act" gives the corporate factory farms a virtual monopoly to police and control all foods grown anywhere, including one's own backyard, and provides harsh penalties and jail sentences for those who do not use chemicals and fertilizers. President Obama decided this sounded reasonable and gave his approval.

Speak out and reject GMOs!
With this Act, Monsanto claims that only GM foods are safe and organic or homegrown foods potentially spread disease, therefore must be regulated out of existence for the safety of the world. If eating GM pesticide balls is their idea of safe food, I would like to think the rest of the world is smart enough to pass.

As further revelations have broken open regarding this evil giant's true intentions, Monsanto crafted the ridiculous HR 933 Continuing Resolution, aka Monsanto Protection Act, which Obama robo-signed into law as well.

This law states that no matter how harmful Monsanto's GMO crops are and no matter how much devastation they wreak upon the country, U.S. federal courts cannot stop them from continuing to plant them anywhere they choose. Yes, Obama signed a provision that makes Monsanto above any laws and makes them more powerful than the government itself. We have to wonder who's really in charge of the country because it's certainly not him!

The rebellion has begun!
Which side will you choose?
There comes a tipping point though when a corporation becomes too evil and the world pushes back...hard! Many countries continue to convict Monsanto of crimes against humanity and have banned them altogether, telling them to "get the f#<k out and stay out!" 

The world has begun to awaken to the fact that the monster does not want control over the global production of food simply for profit's sake. No, it's become clear by over a century of death & destruction that the primary goal is to destroy human health and the environment, turning the world into a Mon-Satanic Hell on Earth!

Research into the name itself reveals it to be latin, meaning "my saint," which may explain why critics often refer to it as "Mon-Satan." Even more conspiratorially interesting is that free masons and other esoteric societies assigned numbers to each letter in our latin-based alphabet system in a six system. Under that number system, what might Monsanto add up to? Why, of course 6-6-6!

Monsanto's on the run!
Know that all is not lost. Evil always loses in the end once it is widely exposed to the light of truth as is occurring now. The fact that the Monsanto-led government finds it necessary to enact desperate legislation to protect its true leader proves this point. Being evicted elsewhere, the United States is Monsanto's last stand so to speak.

Yet, even here many have begun striking back by protesting against and rejecting GMO monstrosities, choosing to grow their own foods and shop at local farmers markets instead of the Monsanto-supported corporate grocery chains. 

The right choice is clear!
The awakening people are also beginning to see they have been misled by corporate tricksters and federal government criminals poisoned by too much power, control and greed, which has resulted in the creation of the monstrous, out-of-control beast. 

And as the people vote against that by choosing not to buy GMO poisons, Monsatan's limbs continue to get hacked away slowly but surely, driving it to its knees for the final organic sword thrust into its blackened heart. It is this that will end its reign of terror for good!
