Mega disasters, possible civil war and mass exodus threaten the US –OM

On July 6, 2019, exactly a year ago, the following prophecy by the Oracle of Menestheus [“OM”] was posted on the internet.

The prophesy was censored by the US and UK media and Internet sites, but it was published by sputniknews.com.

Oracle of Menestheus Μαντεῖον τοῦ Μενεσθέως
08:59 GMT 06.07.2019
Starting soon, a series of mega disasters will leave much of the US unlivable! [See previous comments regarding the probability of civil war in the U.S.] See also related comments previously posted on the mass exodus to and invasion of Canada by Americans including: /radio_trendstorm/201903091073039791-canada-trouble-brewing-for-trudeau/#comments …… If Russians disavow and abandon their white supremacist tendencies, they’ll be provided with vital information.
https://sputniknews.com/us/201907061076165227-magnitude-71-earthquake-hits-southern-california—reports/#comments

The prophecy followed a series of similar predictions posted as early as March 2019.

Oracle of Menestheus Μαντεῖον τοῦ Μενεσθέως
16:28 GMT 11.03.2019
Cataclysmic trouble is brewing for all Canadians thanks to their distant cousins south of the border. On mm/dd/yy their southern neighbors will begin a full-scale invasion of the occupied country after the first of a series of mega disasters has struck, leaving much of the US unlivable. Russia needs to mobilize a major rescue task force, planning multiple escape routes for mass evacuation of her nationals and friends.

Joe Biden a “War Criminal” – Roger Waters

Posted by te2ataria on August 9, 2022

sent by a reader

Roger Waters calls President Biden a “war criminal” who is “just getting started”

“He’s fueling the fire in the Ukraine for a start, that is a huge crime,” Waters said.

Pink Floyd co-founder Roger Waters is calling President Biden a “war criminal” during his latest US rock tour, blaming him for “fueling the fire” of war in Ukraine.

During his show, the 78-year-old performer flashes a picture of Biden, the 46th US President onto a giant screen on the stage with the words, “War criminal — just getting started.”

Asked about the display over the weekend by “the fake news network” CNN’s muttonheaded anchor, Waters said, “President Biden? Well, he’s fueling the fire in the Ukraine, for a start – that is a huge crime.”

On the ongoing war in Ukraine he said: “You could say it started in 2008 – this war is basically about the action and reaction of NATO pushing right up to the Russian border, which they promised they wouldn’t do when [former Soviet leader Mikhail] Gorbachev negotiated the withdrawal of the USSR from the whole of Eastern Europe.”

Waters wondered why the US does not “encourage” Bloodymyr Zelensky, the Ukrainian comedian turned President, “to negotiate, obviating the need for this horrific, horrendous war that’s killing we don’t know how many Russians.”

Blinded by “Russiaphobia”

June 28, 2022 – https://accuracy.org/

JOHN “PAT” WILLERTON, jpw@email.arizona.edu
Willerton is a professor of political science in the School of Government and Public Policy at the University of Arizona focusing on Russia. See his TEDx Talk, “The Russian Soul” from 2013.

He said today: “We have — from the start — misjudged Russia, its political, economic, and military realities, and we now confront a Russia that is winning the conventional war in Ukraine while we face the reality that Russia is politically united and its economy withstanding the sanction pressures we have applied. This is the consequence of living in a world of our own hyped constructions about Russia that vary far from Russia’s reality.

“Our misperceptions are grounded in a profound Russophobia that has yielded bad policy choices. We suffer from the problem of ‘paradigm blindness,’ our Russophobic paradigm blinding us to Russian domestic realities and intentions.

“The Russian economy is stronger than westerners thought and it shows minimal stresses from sanctions. As time passes, it is cutting many economic deals, and it is doing so on its terms (e.g., energy deals in rubles). Meanwhile, outside of the West, most of the world refuses to apply sanctions and many countries do business with Russia.

“Russian society is proving to be prepared to confront the privations that could come with a ‘Western crusade.’ Public support for Russian efforts in Ukraine and in confronting the West are overwhelming now. Russian society appears more unified while fissures are already evident in Europe.
“Perhaps it’s time to step back and try to analyze Russia as it really is, rather than rely on cartoon character arguments that cannot yield effective policies.”

British child poverty now ranks among the highest in Western Europe

Posted by te2ataria on June 7, 2022

Sent by a reader

There were 3.9 million children living in poverty in the UK in 2020-21. That’s 27 per cent of children, or eight in a classroom of 30.  https://cpag.org.uk/child-poverty/child-poverty-facts-and-figures

Let them eat pork pies [and pay for the Platinum Jubilee!]

[quote]
Across the pond, UK workers last week enjoyed four days off to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, an extravaganza that marked 70 years of Elizabeth II’s reign. But after years of pandemic and deepening wealth inequality, a good chunk of the British public found this year’s celebrations — and their hefty pricetag — a bit too ironic to stomach.

British commentator Marina Purkiss captured that irony neatly in a retort to celebrity journalist Piers Morgan: “Government ministers are telling people they need to tighten their belts, to choose between heating and eating, and you’re saying it’s not at all tone deaf to force cash-strapped local governments to spend a fortune on these frivolities?”

A valid question to ask at a time when British child poverty now ranks among the highest in Western Europe while CEO pay levels in the UK have returned to their much more than ample pre-pandemic levels. [/quote]

Why do governments allow bloodsucking billionaires to slaughter us for profit?

Billionaire Wealth up $1.7 Trillion as U.S. Passes 1 Million COVID Deaths Milestone

The U.S. has recorded 1 million COVID deaths. In the time it took to reach that grim milestone, billionaire wealth is up $1.7 trillion.

As the U.S. crosses the grim milestone of 1 million deaths from COVID-19, U.S. billionaires have seen their combined wealth rise over $1.7 trillion, a gain of over 58 percent.

This troubling juxtaposition underscores the story of unequal loss and sacrifice during the worst pandemic in a century. While billionaires have seen their wealth surge during the pandemic, millions have lost their lives and livelihoods.

On March 18, 2020, at the beginning of the formal lockdown, U.S. billionaires held a combined $2.947 trillion. On May 4, 2022, as the U.S. crossed the 1 million death mark, according to an analysis by NBC, 727 U.S. billionaires were worth $1.71 trillion more, according to Forbes.

Elon Musk who had wealth valued just under $25 billion on March 18, 2020 has seen his wealth increase to $255 billion as of May 4, 2022.

Between March 18, 2020 and May 4, 2022, the following increases in wealth have occurred:

Jeff Bezos saw his wealth rise from $113 billion to $150 billion.

Bill Gates experienced a wealth increase from $98 billion to $129.8 billion.

Three members of the Walton family, Jim, Alice and Rob, have seen their combined assets rise from $163.1 billion to $207.7 billion.

At one point during the pandemic, billionaire wealth gains topped $2.1 trillion with market gains, according to an October 2021 report by Americans for Tax Fairness and the Institute for Policy Studies. Previous studies have tracked billionaire wealth gains over the last two years (See the IPS, inequality.org and ATF Billionaires).

Mexico Voting to Nationalize Lithium * Pakistan’s Ousted PM Challenged Corporate Investment Agreements

April 25, 2022

MANUEL PÉREZ-ROCHA, manuel@ips-dc.org, @ManuelPerezIPS

Mexico lawmakers recently approved a bill to nationalize lithium. Pérez-Rocha writes in the Mexican outlet La Jornada: “Our Lithium and Investment Treaties” that: “Frustrated were the traitors of previous administrations and mining companies that salivated over the lithium in our country. They warn that the nationalization of lithium in Mexico contravenes the T-MEC [United States-Mexico–Canada Agreement]. The truth is that chapter 14-E of this treaty is limited to protecting companies with ‘government contracts’ from sectors that do not include the mining sector.” [https://accuracy.org/release/mexico-voting-to-nationalize-lithium-pakistans-ousted-pm-challenged-corporate-investment-agreements/]

CORPORATE POWER

Ousted Pakistani Leader Was Challenging Investment Treaties That Give Corporations Excessive Power

Mexico and many other countries are facing anti-democratic corporate lawsuits like the case that pushed Khan to withdraw from international investment agreements.

Research & Commentary
April 14, 2022

by Manuel Pérez-Rocha
https://inequality.org/authors/manuel-perez-rocha-2

The parliament of Pakistan recently ousted Prime Minister Imran Khan in a no-confidence vote. The reasons for the former cricket star’s political downfall are not entirely clear. His economic policies were a mixed bag at best, but he deserves credit for one thing: he’d taken a bold stand against international investment agreements that give transnational corporations excessive power over national governments.

In fact, Khan had begun a process of terminating 23 bilateral investment treaties (BITs) that allow corporations to sue governments in unaccountable supranational tribunals. Instead, he believed such disputes should be handled through local arbitration.
https://bit.ly/3JT80xm

Khan had learned the hard way how these so-called “investor protection” agreements can tie the hands of government officials, limiting their ability to act in the public interest. In 2019, a year after Khan became Prime Minister, a tribunal (three private judges behind closed doors, to be clear) of the World Bank’s International Centre for Settlement of Investment Disputes (ICSID) ordered Pakistan to pay an Australian mining company $6 billion in compensation for denying a mining permit on environmental grounds.

A similar suit by the same company, Tethyan Copper — a subsidiary of Canadian giant Barrick Gold, through a different tribunal under the International Chamber of Commerce brought the total amount Pakistan owed Tethyan to $11 billion.
https://bit.ly/3KpWg62
https://reut.rs/3rc5viy

The ICSID ruling concluded that Pakistan had violated a BIT with Australia by failing to provide Tethyan “fair and equitable treatment,” a vaguely worded obligation that corporate plaintiffs love to exploit. The tribunal also decided that denying the license for Tethyan’s Reko Diq gold and copper project was tantamount to “indirect expropriation” — never mind the fact that the Supreme Court of Pakistan had ruled the permit invalid because the company had violated national mining and contract laws.

ICSID’s response was to order Pakistan to draw billions of dollars from its public coffers to compensate Tethyan for their lost expected future profits. The company had only invested about $150 million in the project.
https://bit.ly/3DEmOOh)

Khan’s government went to great lengths to reverse the decision, highlighting that the $6 billion ICSID award alone represented about 2 percent of its GDP, or 40 percent of its cash reserves in foreign currency. The government argued that international tribunals must realize that their decisions have an impact on state policies, including poverty alleviation. But the U.S. District Court, responsible for enforcing the ICSID ruling, declared that Pakistan’s hopes of annulling the award were nothing more than “wishful thinking.”
https://bit.ly/3jjQVBg

The ruling against Pakistan under this investor-state dispute settlement system is even more unfair as it came just after the IMF had approved a $6 billion loan to the country that imposes harsh austerity measures on public spending. To overcome this financial straitjacket, Pakistan had no choice but to give in to this concerted attack by financial institutions and international courts and the world’s second-largest gold mining company.

The environmental threat of investor-state suits

We Can’t Trust the World Bank to Stand Up to Powerful Fossil Fuel Companies

On March 20, Barrick Gold announced that it had reached a settlement with Pakistan that will allow the company to resume their controversial Reko Diq mining project in the province of Balochistan. This is a disturbing example of international investment treaties’ chilling effect on Mexicoenvironmentally responsible policies and public interest regulations.
https://bit.ly/3iurT21

Other countries facing similar corporate lawsuits must pay special attention to this case. , for example, is being sued by the U.S. mining company Odyssey Marine Exploration for $3.54 billion. Filed before the ICSID in 2019 under the terms of NAFTA, the suit challenges Mexican authorities’ decision to deny a seabed mining permit to extract phosphate (used for fertilizers) in the Gulf of Ulloa, off the coast of Baja California Sur. The Puerto Chale Fishing Cooperative had strongly opposed the project, on the grounds that their members’ livelihoods depend on the marine areas and seafloor that Odyssey is intent on dredging.

After the company retaliated by bringing a claim to ICSID, the Fishing Cooperative and the Center for International Environmental Law (CIEL) attempted to submit an amicus curiae brief to share their concerns. They also argued that the decision by Mexico’s Ministry of Environment and Natural Resources (Semarnat) to deny the exploitation permit was consistent with the precautionary principle recognized in national and international law. The ICSID tribunal refused to admit the brief. (https://bit.ly/3umy8dL)

In their recent report “A Sea of Trouble: Seabed Mining and International Arbitration in Mexico,” Jen Moore of the Institute for Policy Studies and Ellen Moore of Earthworks explain that such refusals are common in this arbitration system designed to favor transnational corporations. The majority of the panel, made up of highly paid corporate lawyers, essentially asserted that the cooperative’s contribution was “irrelevant.”
https://bit.ly/3NLAVpz

One of the three arbitrators, Phillippe Sands, did express a dissenting opinion. Not only should the cooperative be heard, Sands argued, but that the failure to admit its concerns exposes the failings of the arbitration system, with potentially far-reaching impacts on environmental protection policies in Mexico.

With Khan’s ouster in Pakistan, it’s unclear what will happen to his government’s efforts to withdraw from Bilateral Investment Treaties and the invest-state dispute settlement regime. But resisting this anti-democratic system should not be a partisan issue. All governments should have the authority to adopt economic measures in the public interest — without the threat of expensive corporate lawsuits.

YOU do not need a military force or WMD to change the course of events. It’s done through projection of intense emotions–-a burning desire to save the planet and the lifeforms worth saving–-delivered with laser sharp focus!

Success rate of 100 percent

WE have triggered into existence major events, thereby intervening in ongoing situations through thought projection, many times in the past, especially in recent decades, with a success rate of 100 percent.

Starship Earth Global Vigils

Throughout 2019, The Vigil organizers together with their colleagues and friends throughout the world held monthly synchronized meditative vigils to express our agony and heartbreak and seek cosmic justice against the omniciders through thought projection (see links below) knowing that nothing short of major change-making, albeit cataclysmic, events would stop the omniciders.

Then…

Nature’s Defenses Presented the “Perfect Virus“ to Allow a Pause for Reflection…

StarShip Earth Permanent Meditative Vigil

2020 and beyond: Supported by the Visiting Scholars Group, we will be holding a meditative vigil throughout 2020 and beyond, in an effort to neutralize the omniciders and reclaim the world.

Witness with your mind’s eye the wanton destruction of Starship Earth as being perpetrated by the omniciders, and let the overwhelming feeling of agony, sorrow and pain arising from the enormous loss touch your inner world…

Project onto the terrorists—the super-wealthy class, their puppet governments, all other enablers and family members, collectively the Axis of Evil—the pain and suffering caused by the ongoing ecological holocaust and wanton ecocide, militarism and war economy, poverty and inequality, racism and social exclusion…

Let your focused thoughts invoke tsunamis of emotions within you. Project the waves onto the omniciders…

“Minute” Vigils

The Vigils are being held by individuals and groups around the clock throughout the world for one minute or longer, until the objectives are achieved.

Stake your claim to uncorrupted life on Earth!

The world has about 2,750 billionaires, and a new one is minted every 17 hours or so. They are about 90% are richer than a year ago.

The combined wealth of the world’s billionaires as of May 2021 is about $14.5 trillion — up from $8.7 trillion in May 2020.

Let’s project them, their “wealth” creation machine and their enablers vanishing into the ether, or relocated to the dead planet at warp speed!

Neutralize the billionaires, omniciders, their system and all of their enablers before they commit you to extinction!

“If Zelensky were a patriot, he would have kept the Ukrainian people out of harm’s way…”

Zelensky is No Patriot 

                                               – by Prof. Alfred de Zayas –

If Zelensky were a patriot, he would have kept the Ukrainian people out of harm’s way and would have declared Ukraine to be neutral, and on the basis of neutrality it would have had the best relations with East and West.

Alfred de Zayas who wrote the following is a law professor at the Geneva School of Diplomacy and served as a UN Independent Expert on International Order 2012-18. He is the author of ten books including Building a Just World Order, 2021.

Unfortunately, NATO has a different agenda and its expansion eastwards finds no end.

Alfred de Zayas: “It is obvious that the best solution would have been the implementation of the Minsk agreements, which neither the OSCE [Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe] nor the Normandy Format succeeded in doing. Russia’s two proposed treaties of December 2021 were moderate and should have been accepted in the name of a peaceful modus vivendi. If Zelensky were a patriot, he would have kept the Ukrainian people out of harm’s way and would have declared Ukraine to be neutral, and on the basis of neutrality it would have had the best relations with East and West. Unfortunately, NATO has a different agenda and its expansion eastwards finds no end. NATO is not at all a defensive alliance — certainly not since the dismantlement of the Warsaw Pact in 1991. But in order to justify its existence, NATO unilaterally declared Russia to be the ‘enemy,’ although Russia was bending over backwards to be integrated into the European and world security architecture. NATO had no place for Russia — except in the role of an ‘enemy’ that would justify the enormous military expenditures demanded from its members.

… there were ‘precedents of permissibility’ established by NATO countries through their aggressive wars against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria…

“Undoubtedly, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine violated article 2(4) of the UN Charter, but there were ‘precedents of permissibility’ established by NATO countries through their aggressive wars against Yugoslavia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and Syria — all with total impunity. Bearing in mind that NATO established these ‘precedents of permissibility,’ it is not surprising that other countries follow suit.”

“Among other massive violations of article 2(4) of the UN Charter are Israel’s countless aggressions against its Arab neighbours, the annexation of the Golan Heights, the annexation of East Jerusalem and other Palestine territories, Turkey’s invasion and occupation of Cyprus in 1974 (and fake creation of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus), Saudi Arabia’s on-going merciless war against the people of Yemen, and the September-November 2020 aggression by Azerbaijan against the hapless Armenians of Nagorno Karabakh, who undoubtedly have the right of self-determination. All of these aggressions by NATO members and friends — were conducted with total impunity.

“The United Nations and OSCE have a responsibility for maintaining international peace and security. This requires compromise, not self-righteousness and intransigence. This requires an end to hostilities, arms shipments, threats, and a lifting of sanctions. Only thus can we build a sustainable security architecture for all. More than anything else, we need nuclear disarmament, and a conversion of military-first economies into human-security economies, as I proposed to the UN Human Rights Council in my 2014 report. We must work toward disarmament for development.”

Biden will never fail the Military Industrial Complex!

Posted by te2ataria on March 31, 2022

Sent by a reader

“Biden FY 2023 budget puts war before human needs

“President Biden’s FY 2023 budget request once again prioritizes violence, the military and war over peace and human needs. But more spending on militarism can’t address the nation’s or the world’s problems.

“At $813 billion, the President’s request for the Pentagon exceeds even the $782 billion budget that Congress just passed by $31 billion. The increase alone is twice the amount that Congress refused for ongoing COVID aid for antivirals, vaccines and tests, after nearly one million Americans have died of the virus.

“The U.S. military budget is already more than the next 11 countries combined, 12 times more than Russia’s, and higher than at the peak of the Vietnam War or the Cold War. If more militarism were the key to a stable and secure world, we would already be there.

“Domestically, the U.S. has deported more than five million people over the last 20 years. The president’s budget request also continues the precedent of militarizing immigration policy, so that immigrants are met with violence, detention and surveillance. It maintains or slightly increases funding for Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) and Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the agencies responsible for family separations and abusive detention conditions for immigrants.

“There are some bright spots. The request cuts the number of beds dedicated to detention of immigrants, an inhumane policy that has subjected immigrants to abusive and dangerous conditions. It also cuts the request for the troubled F-35 jet fighter by one third, slowing the flow of money to a behemoth weapons system that has failed to meet the Pentagon’s standards. These cuts show some willingness to break with policy that is immoral and doesn’t work. Congress should maintain both of these cuts.

“Military intervention can’t fix the world’s problems, but that won’t stop contractors and hawks from calling for more military spending. Half of Pentagon funding in a typical year goes to for-profit contractors. Stock prices for weapons contractors have soared since the Russian invasion of Ukraine, and weapons company leaders have spoken of the invasion as an “opportunity.”

“The U.S. has relied for far too long on a false equation of military might and higher military spending with security. U.S. military spending is already 12 times as high as Russia’s, but that did not prevent the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Instead of doubling down on this broken model, the U.S. should reinvest in diplomacy and humanitarian aid, and recognize increasing militarization as the escalating factor it too often is.

“As a candidate and as President, President Biden has called for a diplomacy-first foreign policy, a more humane immigration policy, more investment in public health, child care, elder care, clean energy, ending poverty, higher education, and more. Americans support those priorities. Unfortunately, this budget does not deliver. ” [March 28, 2022]

Foreword:

WE condemn the anthropogenic assault on Earth, the multiple acts of ecocide that are being perpetrated by humans… the corrupt system that feeds on fossil fuel consumption, GHG emissions, wealth accumulation, tourism, militarism, war profiteering, consumerism,  mass movement of people, manufacture of weapons and ephemeral junk… all of which are leading to the extinction of life on Earth–-OMNICIDE.

Cosmic Forces

A permanent channel exists between you and the majestic cosmic forces that ensure the existence of everything, and it can be accessed through your strongest emotions…

Plug into the awesome cosmic forces and let your innermost feelings be known!

We’re accessing those channels, expressing our utmost desires to reclaim the planet.

We’re projecting our most intense emotions into means of neutralizing the omniciders, billionaires, all other evildoers and their enablers, freeing the planet of the burdens that are causing the death of everything:

Terraforming the world for a new lease of life!

Australia Receiving Another Dividend from Coal Industry: State of Emergency Declared Amid Severe Flooding

Who’s the “Fairest” PM of them all?

Mr Perrottet claimed it was a “one-in-1,000-year event” and Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce even it called it a “one-in-3,500-year event“.

Mr “Morrisong” said the once-in-500-year flood event had “taken everybody including the community by surprise”.

500 years here, 500 years there, and soon Australia would age unrecognizably!
