This Disruptive Tech Is Set To Revolutionize How We Pay For Things…

The world has had enough of paper money.

Now that consumers are done with physical wallets, the multi-billion-dollar mobile pay app market is minting new digital barons at breakneck speed.

And we’ve just identified one company at the forefront of the revolution which has a very compelling story.

Glancepay is already the no. 1 mobile payment app in Canada, ranking at over 92 percent of mobile payment app downloads. It’s also making big waves across North America, where it ranks 37 percent of all mobile payment app downloads.

This could be a timely opportunity for early investors who understand what’s about to happen.

For example, when Alipay hit the Chinese market with its instant mobile app pay features, it was an overnight sensation. Now, it’s conducting a massive $1.7 trillion in business annually in China.

And this story is very exciting because GlancePay (CSE:GETOTC:GLNNF) is also making inroads in the billion-dollar cannabis market in a deal that gives them direct ownership in Canapay Financial Inc. and they are planning moves into cryptocurrency markets, too.

Mobile payment technology is one of the fastest-growing markets in the world, and GlancePay is hoping to be the major market disrupter—filling a gap that not even the trillion-dollar Chinese turnover is filling, nor major players on the North American scene.

How? By focusing equally on merchants and consumers, losing cumbersome and security-plagued hardware, and offering much more than just one-click payments: rewards, choices, and even tab-splitting.

In short, GlancePay (CSE:GET) has apps that can simply take a glance at where you are… using proprietary and patented GPS / micro-location and image identification technology… and pays your merchant…in seconds.

It’s holistic, streamlined, and has the technology with patents to protect it, an issue that has kept major players from securing greater market share over the past few years.

In the age of convenience, no one favors the contortionist gymnastics required to hang out the window to pay a parking stub that may or may not work under the pressure of honking horns lined up behind.

PayByPhone founder Desmond Griffin already spotted that trend before it was one, and created the defacto leader in this burgeoning space.

Likewise, in this era of instant gratification, it seems unnecessary to wait for the check in a restaurant, and then wait again while the waitress shuttles back and forth to complete the transaction. Restaurant owners would agree, wholeheartedly: Mobile pay apps mean faster table turnover and more revenues. This time, Griffin not only spotted the trend—he spotted what existing offerings were lacking, integration and a much bigger picture.

GlancePay is nothing if not forward-thinking: We’re less than a year away from the launch of legalized recreational use of marijuana in Canada, and GlancePay is already taking advantage of the onslaught of consumer demand to come, and the already existing demand for medical marijuana. For a recreational marijuana industry that could be worth $22.6 billion annually, GlancePay guarantees lighting fast turnaround for vendors, and one-click pay for buyers.

Launched only in September 2016, Glance Pay already has 160 merchants signed on, and its growth is poised to soar in the coming weeks and months. Its Q2 revenue is up a whopping 664{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} over the previous quarter.

Here are 5 reasons to keep a close eye on GlancePay (CSE:GETOTC:GLNNF)

#1 Proprietary and Patented Technology

GlancePay is a streamlined payment platform that allows customers to pay their bill instantly with their mobile device. It means no more waiting on waitresses; no more credit card machines; and a single app rather than one for each restaurant.

The app knows where you are using patented GPS technology. And, if GPS isn’t available, it can even determine your location using a photo of where you are. Much like Google has mapped the world… GlancePay has quietly built a proprietary global database of locations.

It’s as easy as point, shoot, pay.

But it is also much more. It takes the mobile pay app experience much further than Apple Pay, which only iPhone owners can use, and which has failed so far to gain widespread usage.

With GlancePay, you’re not just paying a bill: The system includes in-app marketing, in-store rewards, transaction history, payment confirmation, and even the ability to split the tab in a restaurant. It incentivizes users… and adoption is picking up from this network effect.

It also helps you choose nearby restaurants, and soon, it will also let you order from your table, pre-order for pickup, or order for delivery.

For restaurants, it means better business, faster turnaround and potentially greater revenues.

The company estimates that restaurants will benefit from 10{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} faster table turnover during peak periods, improved server productivity, which should generate bigger tips, and a loyalty/rewards program that could encourage customer returns and even attract new customers. The built-in feedback program also adds to the big-picture offering here, by giving restaurants a faster, easier way to earn reviews and ratings.

Weird Things Are Happening With Gold

by Jim Rickards, Daily Reckoning:

Last week featured two unusual stories on gold — one strange and the other truly weird. These stories explain why gold is not just money but is the most politicized form of money.

They show that while politicians publicly disparage gold, they quietly pay close attention to it.

The first strange gold story involves Germany…

The Deutsche Bundesbank, the central bank of Germany, announced that it had completed the repatriation of gold to Frankfurt from foreign vaults.

The German story is the completion of a process that began in 2013. That’s when the Deutsche Bundesbank first requested a return of some of the German gold from vaults in Paris, in London and at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.

Those gold transfers have now been completed.

This is a topic I first raised in the introduction to Currency Wars in 2011. I suggested that in extremis, the U.S. might freeze or confiscate foreign gold stored on U.S. soil using powers under the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, the Trading With the Enemy Act or the USA Patriot Act.

This then became a political issue in Europe with agitation for repatriation in the Netherlands, Germany and Austria. Europeans wanted to get gold out of the U.S. and safely back to their own national vaults. The German transfer was completed ahead of schedule; the original completion date was 2020.

But the German central bank does not actually want the gold back because there is no well-developed gold-leasing market in Frankfurt and no experience leasing gold under German law.

German gold in New York or London was available for leasing under New York or U.K. law as part of global price-manipulation schemes. Moving gold to Frankfurt reduces the floating supply available for leasing, making it more difficult to keep the manipulation going.

Why did Germany do it?

The driving force both in 2013 (date of announcement) and 2017 (date of completion) is that both years are election years in Germany. Angela Merkel’s position as chancellor of Germany is up for a vote on Sept. 24, 2017. She may need a coalition to stay in power, and there’s a small nationalist party in Germany that agitates for gold repatriation.

Merkel stage-managed this gold repatriation with the Deutsche Bundesbank both in 2013 and this week to appease that small nationalist party and keep them in the coalition. That’s why the repatriation was completed three years early. She needs the votes now.

The truly weird gold story comes from the United States…

Secretary of the Treasury Steve Mnuchin and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell just paid a visit to Fort Knox to see the U.S. gold supply. Mnuchin is only the third Treasury secretary in history ever to visit Fort Knox and this was the first official visit from Washington, D.C., since 1974.

The U.S. government likes to ignore gold and not draw attention to it. Official visits to Fort Knox give gold some monetary credence that central banks would prefer it does not have.

Why an impromptu visit by Mnuchin and McConnell? Why now?

The answer may lie in the fact that the Treasury is running out of cash and could be broke by Sept. 29 if Congress does not increase the debt ceiling by then.

But the Treasury could get $355 billion in cash from thin air without increasing the debt simply by revaluing U.S. gold to a market price. (U.S. gold is currently officially valued at $42.22 per ounce on the Treasury’s books versus a market price of $1,285 per ounce.)

Once the Treasury revalues the gold, the Treasury can issue new “gold certificates” to the Fed and demand newly printed money in the Treasury’s account under the Gold Reserve Act of 1934. Since this money comes from gold revaluation, it does not increase the national debt and no debt ceiling legislation is required.

Monsanto: It Ain’t Glyphosate, it’s the Additives!

0

by F. William Engdahl, New Eastern Outlook:

Famously corrupt and unscrupulous, Monsanto Corporation has now been discovered in covering up the highly toxic effects of the secret additives it combines with glyphosate in Roundup, the world’s most-used herbicide. The IARC, an agency of the World Health Organization, released a report in March, 2015 that declared the chemical glyphosate to be “probably carcinogenic to humans (Group 2A).” They were not provided tests that included the effects of glyphosate combined with specific trade secret additives. Monsanto is desperate to hide the true carcinogen in its Roundup weed-killer.

Glyphosate is the largest component of Monsanto Roundup, the world’s largest weed-killer and the toxin mandated in every Monsanto Genetically Manipulated (GMO) planting. But what Monsanto refuses to disclose is what additives it uses, otherwise termed surfactants or adjuvants, ostensibly to give the glyphosate a “turbo” weed-killer effectiveness boost.

Since late 2016 the United States District Court for the Northern District of California has been hearing a case brought by a group of plaintiffs against Monsanto, claiming the firm falsified test results and refused to test the actual commercial mix sold as Roundup, a mix which contains far more deadly chemicals than glyphosate, especially when combined with glyphosate, in order to show its best-selling Roundup to be harmless in recommended doses and non-carcinogenic.

It’s the Surfactants!

On June 30, 2017, attorneys from Baum, Hedlund, Aristei & Goldman, lawyers for the plaintiffs, released online court documents provided by Monsanto to the Court in the ongoing California case against Monsanto. Those Monsanto secret documents reveal the criminal company collusion to cover up the truth about its Roundup weed-killer.

Among the damning emails from the Monsanto internal documents is an email exchange marked Confidential, dated November 22, 2003, from Donna R. Farmer, PhD., then chief toxicologist at Monsanto responsible for glyphosate products worldwide. Farmer states bluntly, “The terms glyphosate and Roundup cannot be used interchangeably nor can you use “Roundup” for all glyphosate-based herbicides any more. For example, you cannot say that Roundup is not a carcinogen … we have not done the necessary testing on the formulation to make that statement.” (emphasis added-w.e.)

Another confidential Monsanto email dated December 14, 2010, more than seven years after Donna Farmer’s 2003 admission, states that “With regards to the carcinogenicity of our (Roundup-w.e.) formulations, we don’t have such testing on them directly, but we do have such testing on the glyphosate component.” It’s a bit like telling someone you held an African Black Mamba, the world’s fastest and one of the world’s most toxic snakes, and nothing happened to you, so the Black Mamba can be certified as safe for a household pet.

What Monsanto toxicologist Donna Farmer refers to as “the formulation” is the major ingredient, glyphosate, in combination with various surfactants or adjuvants, allegedly used to bind the weed-killer Roundup more efficiently to target weeds in the region of spraying of crops such as GMO corn or soybeans. Monsanto calls the component in Roundup called glyphosate the “active ingredient,” implying, falsely, that the added chemicals are merely passive or inert and harmless.

No tests done

To date the entire global public debate on glyphosate in the USA, the EU and in the rest of the world has been a very sly “red herring,” put out by Monsanto to take attention away from the vastly more toxic cocktail that is sold today as Roundup weed-killer, the world’s most widely used weed-killer. Roundup is far more than only glyphosate, as the email from Donna Farmer admits. Monsanto has deliberately turned the public and legal debate to focus only on glyphosate, as if the rest of their toxic cocktail was just some sugar candy. Are their trade secret additives including chemicals such as formaldehyde? We don’t know. Do they include known carcinogens such as N-ethyl-NNG? We don’t know. Monsanto refuses to tell the public.

The Monsanto secret email exchanges, now public as a result of the California court case, reveal dramatically the collusion of senior US Government officials at the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Monsanto to conceal the fact that the EPA never was in possession of the other components of Roundup aside from glyphosate.

Those surfactants are mostly classified as “trade secret” by Monsanto and have not even been made known to the US Government agency responsible for guarding the environmental health of the population, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), yet EPA officials have never made a public issue of the fact.

Among the Monsanto confidential emails released by attorneys in the California law suit on June 30, 2017 is one dated March 5, 2013. In it Monsanto admits internally, “We do not conduct sub-chronic, chronic or teratogenicity studies with our formulations. The long-term exposure has been assessed according to the regulatory requirements in chronic and carcinogenicity studies conducted with the active ingredient glyphosate.” (emphasis added-w.e.). Teratogenic testing is testing to determine if a drug or chemical contains an agent that can disturb the development of the human embryo or fetus. Teratogens can halt the pregnancy or produce a congenital malformation or birth defect.

On its website, Monsanto gives a picture of serious compliance with government safety testing standards. It states, “Like all pesticides, glyphosate is routinely reviewed by regulatory authorities to ensure it can be used safely. In the U.S., that’s the job of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), and like other regulatory authorities around the world, the EPA’s process is comprehensive and based on the best available science.” (emphasis added-w.e.).

Note that they are careful to say “glyphosate,” and not Roundup. As the California EPA and Monsanto email exchanges reveal, Monsanto is being sly here, as they have not managed over 40 years to give detailed information on all the additives or adjuvants contained today or earlier in its Roundup herbicide. Curiously, they state, “Click here to learn more about the EPA’s current “registration review” underway for glyphosate.,” however as of August 28, 2017 there is no link to any EPA “registration review.” Oops, sorry…

In simple English, Monsanto admits its fraud that it only used tests of the possible carcinogenicity of its so-called “active ingredient” glyphosate. Never did they submit tests of the true Roundup cocktail actually used commercially. The entire EU and US EPA “glyphosate debate” is a hoax, a nefarious fraud.

‘Two Thousand times more toxic’ than glyphosate alone

Independent scientific tests by toxicologists have revealed that it is precisely the added ingredients, the so-called surfactants or Roundup’s “formulations,” in chemical combination with the far less toxic glyphosate base, that are highly toxic and probable carcinogen.

In a peer-reviewed scientific paper published on February 26, 2016 in the International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health, a team of toxicologists led by Gilles-Eric Séralini of the Institute of Biology, University of Caen in Normandy, France and András Székács, Director of the Agro-Environmental Research Institute of Hungary’s National Agricultural Research and Innovation Centre, tested the most commonly used glyphosate-based herbicides including Monsanto Roundup. They tested the complete cocktail, including the co-formulants and formulations used in combination with the glyphosate.

What they found should put our hair on end. Instead, it has been swept under the rug by the US Government and the Commission of the EU as well as by a German government eager perhaps to appease the giant German Bayer AG, the prospective new owner of Monsanto.

The Seralini group study demonstrated for the first time that endocrine disruption by Glyphposate-Based Herbicides (GBH) could not only be due to the declared active ingredient, glyphosate, but also to the co-formulants or additives. But it gets much worse than that.

Seralini’s group tested the endocrine disruption of co-formulants in six glyphosate-based herbicides (GBH), the most used pesticides worldwide including Roundup.

Their study concluded, “The endocrine-disrupting effects of all these compounds were measured on aromatase activity, a key enzyme in the balance of sex hormones, below the toxicity threshold. Aromatase activity was decreased both by the co-formulants alone…and by the formulations, from concentrations 800 times lower than the agricultural dilutions…; while G (glyphosate) exerted an effect only at 1/3 of the agricultural dilution…These results could explain numerous in vivo results with GBHs not seen with G alone; moreover, they challenge the relevance of the acceptable daily intake (ADI) value for GBHs exposures, currently calculated from toxicity tests of the declared active ingredient alone.

Their tests further concluded that the compounded herbicides using glyphosate as base, but including undisclosed “formulations” or surfactants or co-formulants, were vastly more toxic than glyphosate tested alone. They write, “All co-formulants and formulations were comparably cytotoxic well below the agricultural dilution of 1{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528}.” Depending on the product, the tests revealed that glyphosate, in combination with co-formulants, could be up to 2000 times more toxic to cells than glyphosate alone.

Yet Monsanto has never revealed its trade secret co-formulants, neither to the US Government as it is compelled to by law, nor to the public.

The Seralini study concludes that “The declared active ingredients of pesticide formulations are not applied in their isolated form in agricultural use. Other substances (co-formulants) are also added, in order to modify the physico-chemical properties or to improve penetration or stability of the declared active ingredients. The identity of the co-formulants, declared as inert, is generally kept confidential. Moreover, they are not used in medium or long term in vivo toxicity tests of pesticides on mammals for the establishment of their acceptable daily intake.”

FBI Continues Cover for Hillary: Says Lack of Public Interest In Clinton Emails Justifies Withholding Documents

0

by Tim Brown, Freedom Outpost:

Does anyone in DC understand what it means to be in the Executive Branch?  It is about bringing justice upon those who break that law!

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is now rubbing their own corruption, along with the corruption of Hillary Clinton in the faces of the American people.

Forget that James Comey is gone and that Christopher A. Wray, a Trump appointee, is in charge.  It makes no difference because both are involved in the coverup of Clinton’s illegalities when it comes to her time as Secretary at the State Department.

Not only was the FBI under Comey unwilling to call on the DOJ to indict Clinton for her illegal email server, but now, under Wray, they are claiming since there is a lack of public interest in her emails that they are justified in withholding documents from an attorney seeking the FBI’s documents on Clinton via a Freedom of Information Act request.

The Washington Times reports:

Ty Clevenger, the lawyer, has been trying to get Mrs. Clinton and her personal lawyers disbarred for their handling of her official emails during her time as secretary of state. He’s met with resistance among lawyers, and now his request for information from the FBI’s files has been shot down.

“You have not sufficiently demonstrated that the public’s interest in disclosure outweighs personal privacy interests of the subject,” FBI records management section chief David M. Hardy told Mr. Clevenger in a letter Monday.

“It is incumbent upon the requester to provide documentation regarding the public’s interest in the operations and activities of the government before records can be processed pursuant to the FOIA,” Mr. Hardy wrote.

Mr. Hardy should know better.  The request concerning Clinton’s emails and her activities while at the State Department are not a “privacy” issue.

They are first and foremost a national security issue and since the FBI has basically said that she broke the law during her time at the State Department, Clevenger should not have to demonstrate anything.  His request should simply be honored.

Second, the public’s interest in this matter is of grave importance seeing that Clinton’s illegal email server has led to at least one verifiable death tied to it.

As for Mr. Clevenger, he is “stunned” that the FBI does not consider the matter of public interest seeing that members of Congress, who represent the public, have called for an investigation into whether Clinton perjured herself during testimony under oath on Capitol Hill.

“I’m just stunned. This is exactly what I would have expected had Mrs. Clinton won the election, but she didn’t. It looks like the Obama Administration is still running the FBI,” Mr. Clevenger told The Washington Times.

“How can a story receive national news coverage and not be a matter of public interest? If this is the new standard, then there’s no such thing as a public interest exception,” he added.

How can it?  I’ll tell you how.  The same corrupt people there were in there before Trump came in are still there.

A Tale of Two Worlds — Much of Houston Underwater

0

by Harley Schlanger, Rogue Money:

Trump said at his news conference today, “You’re going to get your funding.” He expects the formal request for emergency funding for Harvey victims to come soon. Meantime, FEMA spokeswoman Stephanie Moffett says, expenses from dealing with Harvey’s destruction are “quickly drawing down the remaining balance” in FEMA’s disaster-relief fund, which earlier today stood at $3.3 billion. (See separate item, on FEMA, National Guard, and other mobilization).

Some of the Congressional dead-heads are still balking, even some from Texas. Rep. Jeb Hensarling (R-TX), Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee, today reverted to his johnny-one-note venality, hinting that in order to help the Gulf Coast, Federal budget cuts can be found to offset it, “from lower-priority spending.”

In dollar terms, the sensible range of costs to rebuild after the storm, start at $100 billion, considering the need for completely restoring transportation, housing, power, food distribution, safe water and sanitation, factories, and farming.

Plus, it’s long overdue to build the infrastructure to protect against the vulnerability of the entire Gulf Coast to hurricanes and fierce storms. What Rep. Culberson said of this today on Bloomberg is completely false, that, “No one could have ever predicted or expected a catastrophe of this magnitude to descend on the Houston area.”

In reality, Texas, itself, is host to research specialists studying the mid-latitude storm patterns. Plus, only last year came the inundation of Houston in the huge “Tax Day Flood,” which hit in mid-April, 2016. This was a foretaste for Harvey.

Take a quick look at the infrastructure history of the region, centered on the San Jacinto and Brazos river systems. This is the location of the greater Houston area, which is barely 50 feet above sea level, and prone to flooding. As of 1940, a flood-protection plan was devised for Houston, which involved a couple dams, and systems of drainage channels, levees, and other structures, to manage and divert flood run-off away from heavily settled areas. Right after WW II, the Barker Dam was built (1945) and the Addicks Dam (1948), whose reservoirs hold back high run-off, for calculated release, when flooding recedes. Following this initial construction, no radical updates were made over the decades in the Houston area, in the Harris County Flood Control District.

Fast forward to the present catastrophe, and the lack of protective structures and systems is clear. The problem is not the two dams as such—they are 20 years over their engineering life span, but have been strengthened. At present, water is being released from their reservoirs, because they are overflowing with the epic rainfall and run-off.

The problem is that new, larger diversion and water-management systems were not put in place over the years. Doing so is a unique challenge, but there are examples of super-challenges that have been met in other parts of the world.

Look at Tokyo, another populous area, practically at sea level, and prone to epic flooding. From 1992 to 2006, gigantic underground silos were built outside Tokyo, to handle flood waters, in what is called the “Metropolitan Area Outer Underground Discharge Channel.” This is the largest water diversion, and holding tank system in the world. It consists of five concrete containment chambers. Tokyo is prone to deluge from simultaneous rains, run-off from inland slopes, and sea surge. When safe, enormous pumps lift the water out of the underground storage complex.

The Harris County Flood Control District has even been short of minimal maintenance funds. Earlier this month, its Director of Operations, Matt Zeve, told the Houston Chronicle that the District had a $100 million maintenance backlog.

A Tale of Two Worlds by LaRouchePAC August 29, 2017

As Charles Dickens wrote in A Tale of Two Cities: “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair.”

Today it is not two cities, but two visions of the future of mankind, and of the fundamental nature of man.

The world is watching the devastation in Houston — a natural disaster, of course, but one which found a “little people” (as Schiller said of the French population at the time of Dickens’s tale), who have allowed the nation’s infrastructure to decay to the point of collapse. Houston is notoriously unprepared to deal with flooding during even annual storms, let alone hurricanes or the current 1,000-year flood. Already in 2012, the American Society of Civil Engineers gave the city a C- on its “report card” regarding flood control. The two primary flood control dams for Houston, both on the verge of overflow or even collapse in the current storm, were built in the 1940s and are 20 years past their life expectancy.

But Houston is no different than essentially every part of these United States. Our greatest city, New York, is undergoing a general breakdown in transportation, sanitation, water, and more — a reality addressed on Aug. 26 at a Schiller Institute forum in Manhattan. The infrastructure deficit has created powder kegs across the nation, only needing a spark to set them off, as we saw with Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans, with superstorm Sandy in New York City, or with the drought in the Southwest.

On the other hand, the “spring of hope” vision of the world is becomming a reality, as the New Silk Road is bringing large- scale infrastructure across Asia, Africa, and Ibero-America, infrastructure which was denied them throughout the colonial and post-colonial eras. In particular, two of the Great Projects proposed by Lyndon LaRouche over the past decades — the Kra Canal in southern Thailand, and the replenishing of the nearly- depleted Lake Chad in Africa through diversion of water from the Congo — are now close to realization. These projects have been fiercely opposed by the former colonial powers, and are still opposed in the West under the fraudulent guise of environmental damage and unprofitability. In both of these Great Projects, the role of China’s Belt and Road Initiative is the central driving force, viewing mankind not as subjects of an oligarchy, but as the reason for the existence of governments.

Social Media is A Tool of the CIA: “Facebook, Google and Other Social Media Used to Spy on People”

0

by Prof Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research:

A CBS news article published in 2011 entitled “Social Media Is a Tool of the CIA. Seriously”  reveals the “unspoken truth” which the mainstream media including CBS have failed to address. 

The CIA is  “using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people.”

This article published by CBS refutes the lies of the MSM (and CBS). It confirms the insidious relationship between the CIA, the Search Engines,  Social Media and major advertising conglomerates: “You don’t need to wear a tinfoil hat to believe that the CIA is using Facebook, Twitter, Google (GOOG) and other social media to spy on people. That’s because the CIA publishes a helpful list of press releases [link inactive] on all the social media ventures it sponsors, via its technology investment arm In-Q-Tel. … “

The report acknowledges that “privacy” is threatened by the advertisers, yet at the same time these advertisers are “in bed with the CIA”,  acting on behalf and in liaison with US intelligence.

The Privatization of Spying

Spying on individuals is a highly profitable undertaking for private companies on contract to the CIA, NSA, Homeland Security. The CBS report suggests in no uncertain terms that the personal information pertaining to millions of Americans collected by one of the World’s largest ad agencies is sold to the CIA. 

According to an earlier Wired News July 2010 report by Noam Schachtman:

THE INVESTMENT ARMS of the CIA and Google are both backing a company that monitors the web in real time — and says it uses that information to predict the future.

The company is called Recorded Future, and it scours tens of thousands of websites, blogs and Twitter accounts to find the relationships between people, organizations, actions and incidents — both present and still-to-come. In a white paper, the company says its temporal analytics engine “goes beyond search” by “looking at the ‘invisible links’ between documents that talk about the same, or related, entities and events.”

Freedom of Expression

Social Media and Search engines are being used to Spy on Americans! But not only on Americans. The process of personal data collection is worldwide.

What is at stake, however, is not only the issue of “Privacy”. The online search engines also constitute an instrument of online media censorship.  

Google has introduced algorithms intended to downgrade independent and alternative media. In this regard, the Guardian reported (December 2016) on “How Google’s search algorithm spreads false information with a rightwing bias.

Domestic Foreign Troop Activity From Coast to Coast: FEMA Behaving Strangely

0

by Dave Hodges, The Common Sense Show:

The above photo was taken by Joel S. in Pennsylvania. This is one of several NATO helicopters operating in the same area where I reported UN activity four months ago. It has been quiet in this area until the emergence of Hurricane Harvey.

UN Activity in California

In the past four months, I have received numerous reports from people in California regarding their sighting of UN personnel and vehicles in California.

Here is the report we filed in this on April 27, 2017.

Additionally, Paul Martin is good friends with RBN talk show host, ex-Green Beret, John Moore. Moore had a relative that was buying a puppy in the Seattle area. When the relative went to get the dog, they asked the resident what they did for a living and the female resident answered “I am a UN Peacekeeper”.

Here is another email I received from the potentially impacted area if the Oroville Dam were to fail as many are predicting will happen in the upcoming spring run off.

Hi Dave, I was just watching your UN bit….

In any case, I live in Stockton CA and with the shows I’ve been watching I got curious about our Port of Stockton since it’s a gate way for imports and exports. 

I have a former Security officer that worked for me so I decided to give her a buzz to see what, if anything was happening. Especially since I hear choppers flying over head every night about 2-3 in the morning. 

And by the way, the Ports MERSEC…Maritime Security is at level 1,  meaning security is to be present at all times. 

Any way, the only thing she knew was that the choppers for the National Guard and Fire Department are having rescue drills. Hmmmm. I wonder….

(Editor’s note: Wonder what? They are practicing for the Oroville Dam to go? This would be the perfect excuse to get the UN out in the open if their presence was for humanitarian reasons)

Previous and Current Pennsylvania Sightings of UN Helicopters and Vehicles

For months I have received a stream of reports about sightings of UN Helicopters in Pennsylvania.

From the Delaware River Area Involving UN Attack Helicopters

I received this email as an examle of many that I have received in the past 4-5 months:

Good afternoon Dave,
I sent you a few sightings of UN/military in the air around my area (east coast). I just spotted another one (attached video) and this is a reference pic of what I saw. Identical colors, not sure maybe the Gov/Feds according to the colors. I know they are doing a drill this week, but I have been seeing them way before that started. I even thought ok, all the previous sightings were (practice for the drill), but then I started looking for a common denominator, why I am seeing all this activity, so low to the ground, like the are mapping it out or something in my immediate area. I pulled a map up and started focusing on the flight path they all seem to be doing, north to south. Then it hme….the Delaware River. Whatever they are up to, I’ll bet you that river has something to do with it…

Now we are seeing NATO activity in the same area.

Total G-3 Central Bank Control

by Turd Ferguson, TF Metals:

There’s a lot of amazement and wonder at how the “stock market” can be up today with the devastating news out of Texas and the latest North Korean missile launch. Longtime readers of TFMR know exactly how this market levitation is accomplished so this post is designed as a public service in order to better educate and inform everyone else.

Let’s just keep it simple…

In 2017…and, actually, since 2008…the “markets” don’t actually exist. Oh sure, there are trades and prices but in terms of what the markets were 20 years ago?…those days are long gone. Instead, what we have now is total HFT domination. Over 90{5f621241b214ad2ec6cd4f506191303eb2f57539ef282de243c880c2b328a528} of all volume on the NYSE and NASDAQ is now done through HFT machines that swap positions back and forth. This is common knowledge and if you and I know this, then you can be assured that The Fed, The ECB and the BoJ (known henceforth as the G-3) know this, too.

To that end, since the G-3 are dedicated to market stability and the wealth effect, these central banks clearly seek to influence the direction of the equity markets by influencing the two key drivers of the HFT machines. And what are these drivers? The currency pair of USDJPY and the volatility index known as the VIX. Simply stated, if your wish is to drive “the stock market” higher, all you need to do is buy the USDJPY while at the same time selling the VIX. It truly is that simple.

To that end, daily observation of trading patterns allows us to observe a clear and obvious, algo-driven program in the all-important USDJPY. Because of the sheer size of the forex market (up to $7T/day), any algorithm put in place to manage this pair could only come from pockets deep enough to make it happen….namely, the G-3.

And what does this computer-based, G-3 buying program look like. Again, in the simplest terms, this program sets up a USDJPY floor at some pre-determined or even random level. Once a bounce is initiated, a buy program then follows after the pair have come back down to a newly-discovered double bottom. For today (Tuesday, the 29th), it looked like this:

No end To Coverups

by Paul Craig Roberts, Paul Craig Roberts:

Craig Roberts (yes, there are two of us) is a former US Marine and a 27-year veteran of the Tulsa, Oklahoma, police force. He is a capable and committed person. Since 1989 he has written 13 books. His latest, just published, Medusa File II, consists essentially of his volumnious files of the investigation of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City on April 19th, 1995, known as “the Oklahoma City Bombing.” https://www.amazon.com/Medusa-File-II-Politics-Oklahoma/dp/1547027843/ref=sr_1_2?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1503780098&sr=1-2&keywords=Craig+Roberts

The FBI, appreciative of Roberts’ capabilities, requested his service in the investigation. As officially part of the investigation, he took the investigation seriously. The investigation proceeded rapidly, developing many leads. Numerous witnesses saw Timothy McVeigh with many dark complexioned men prior to and just after the bombing. Leads were also developed to militias in Elohim City, to the German, Strassmeir, and others.

Before any of these leads could be developed, the investigation was taken over by President Bill Clinton’s Attorney General, Janet Reno. Once Washington took over, the investigation stopped. In its place was Washington’s theory that it was Tim McVeigh’s lonely protest. The volumnious evidence of McVeigh’s accomplices or controllers, as might have been the case, was in the way of the official story that imposed itself on the investigation. Many people resisted the coverup that descended on the case, including local journalists who eventually lost their jobs or moved on.

Roberts stuck it out to the end. So did black Oklahoma City Police sgt. Terrance Yeakey. For resisting the official story Yeakey paid with his life. Roberts provides the reasons he believes Yeakey had definitive evidence that the official story was a coverup. The OCPD was called off once the official story was in place, but Yeakey wouldn’t quit and became a problem. The official OCPD report says it was suicide, but Roberts recognizes homicide when he sees it. There was no autopsy and the police refused to release the police report to Yeakey’s family. Being black, they had little recourse. Remaining skeptics were dismissed as “conspiracy theorists,” and that was the end of the case.

One of the striking details that Roberts provides is that in the immediate aftermath of the bombing with rescue workers removing dead and wounded from the rubble, numerous federal agents appeared, ordered the rescue workers out of the building on the grounds that there were still unexploded bombs in the building. Then with the trapped still under the rubble, all rescue efforts halted until the federal agents had removed file cabinets from the building. Roberts speculates that the cabinets contained the files of the Mena drug running operation that many believe involved Arkansas governor Bill Clinton, and that President Clinton and Janet Reno didn’t want these files to see the light of day.

For an official explanation of the case that relies solely on McVeigh’s “truck bomb,” the federal agents’ statement that unexploded bombs remained in the building is a conundrum. If there were unexploded bombs remaining in the building, how could it be that McVeigh was the lone wolf perpetrator? It reminded me of General Benton Partin, a US Air Force explosive expert, who produced a detailed report proving that the Murrah building blew up from the inside out, not from the outside in. Of course, by the time Gen. Partin got his study completed, the fix was in, and there was to be no challenge to, or reconsidering of, the official cover story.

Is this the most powerful superfood on the planet?

by: Derek Henry, Natural News:

 In the wake of a dirty food industry, a corrupt and inept health care system, and government leaders who could not care less about the state of the environment, nearly every living thing on planet Earth has become tainted, nutrient deficient, and diseased.

However, there is good news as organic farmers, natural health professionals, and a few leaders are standing up to the corruption and poisoning of people and our planet to create a movement invested in pure, nourishing, and sustainable food practices. As a result, the options for clean food and proper health care are increasing, as is the harnessing of potent foods from nature to help us overcome toxicities and malnourishment that have ruined our quality of life.

But where do you start when you want to remove obnoxious toxins and nourish your body in a way that results in a more rapid improvement in your health? How do you do something in months that normally may take years or decades?

You plug into the most nutritionally dense and cleansing foods possible, and you’d do well to start with chlorella.

What is chlorella?

Chlorella is a single-celled micro-algae grown in water and is one of the few edible species of it’s kind. Commonly referred to as a superfood or the perfect food, it packs an incredibly comprehensive nutrient profile and could be considered the healthiest superfood on the planet.

What type of nutrition can you expect from a serving of chlorella?

  • An incredible source of highly digestible plant protein (58 percent of weight).
  • A superior source of chlorophyll.
  • A potent alkaline-forming food
  • A great source of iron, magnesium and zinc, as well as phosphorus, calcium, iodine, manganese, and potassium.
  • A quality source of vitamins A, C, E, and K and also the entire B-complex.
  • It is high in essential fatty acids, inclusing gamma linolenic acid (GLA).
  • A good source of antioxidants, polysaccharides, beta carotene, and lutein.
  • It is rich in enzymes and other phytonutrients.
  • High in dietary nucleic acids like RNA and DNA.

Incorporating this kind of nutrition into your body on a daily basis will arguably provide more synergistic nutrients and healing power than anything else you put in your mouth! (Related: Learn more about the science on the power of chlorella.)

What can you expect from taking chlorella?

When you consume a clean chlorella on a daily basis, you can expect to flood your body with a wide range of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, enzymes, and phytonutrients. By doing this, you can provide your body with appropriate levels of various vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that are crucial for the optimization of bodily processes.

Another important factor to consider with chlorella is it’s ability to bind to heavy metals like mercury, lead, nickel, and aluminum. These toxins have been largely introduced through pollution, vaccinations, fish, and mercury amalgams, and many people take chlorella to help support their body’s natural elimination of these toxic elements.

Chlorella also promotes the production of healthy flora and bacteria (probiotics) in the digestive system, which helps support a healthy digestive process. Learn more about the power of highly nutritious food at Superfoods.news.

Of course, like any food, the source is of utmost importance in order to properly benefit. Many brands of chlorella that have been tested with the Health Ranger’s high-end laboratory equipment were found to be polluted with heavy metals, and surprisingly the “organic” brands contain more heavy metals than non-organic! Unfortunately, a lot of chlorella on the shelves today is from China, which is typically the most polluted with heavy metals. It doesn’t make much sense to take a powerful superfood to improve your health, when it is filled with toxins that can destroy it, does it?

This is why a product like the Health Ranger’s Clean Chlorella is one of a kind, because it has been rigorously tested and found to have no detectable levels of radiation, and is grown in environments that best support healing, strength, and recovery. You can get some of your own Clean Chlorella, here.

Of course, chlorella isn’t the only superfood on the planet, but it is a great one to start with on your journey to better health. Incorporate more of these types of superfoods (spirulina, for example), and you surely will start to enjoy a much higher quality of life.
