GREY CHAMPION ASSUMES COMMAND (PART TWO)

Those hoping for the Trump presidency to somehow derail this Fourth Turning are delusional. Fourth Turnings never de-intensify. They build to a bloody crescendo, with the existing social order left in tatters and clear winners and losers. I think it is useful to describe this Fourth Turning in terms everyone should understand. J.R.R. Tolkien wrote his Lord of the Rings trilogy in the midst of the last Fourth Turning. It’s not a coincidence the heroic figure of Gandalf the Grey saves the day during the Battle of Helm’s Deep. He was the Grey Champion.

Cannonball Elder wants Protesters who started Riot to Leave the Camp

Last night about 400 protesters illegally trespassed on the Backwater Bridge, trying to pass the blockades.
About a dozen fires were set near the bridge and the Red Warrior Camp.
Law enforcement officers remained on the scene until the bridge was cleared, early Monday morning.

Terry Martinez is an elder at the camp.

Terry Martinez: I joined them because, as a spiritual leader, you have to be with your people. So I too was spray, canonized, concussion cannon. I was shot with rubber bullets.

He says the riot was started by eight DAPL protesters.

Ranchers Speak Out About Butchered, Missing Bison

BISMARCK, ND - We have heard complaints about missing and butchered livestock throughout the Dakota Access protest, but now, one rancher is speaking out.

Ernie and Beverly Fischer are worried about their bison.

"We are missing a fairly large amount of Bison, we believe that 13 of them have been butchered, killed," said Ernie Fischer.

He thinks protesters are killing his animals. Ernie says a full grown bull can sell for about $5,000. He's not sure how he can recoup his losses.

Connecting Two Continents: The Ultimate Engineering Challenge

The Bering Strait was last crossed by humans 20,000 years ago during the ice age, when ice formed a bridge between North America and Asia. Today, 47 miles and some of the harshest ocean and arctic conditions separate the two continents.

However, there are many who believe there would be great economical, sociological, and political value in connecting the two land masses by bridge or tunnel. Imagine being able to travel from London to Moscow to Washington, DC, all over land.

FLASHBACK: Russia Green Lights $65 Billion Siberia-Alaska Rail and Tunnel to Bridge the Bering Strait!

If things don't get messed up we have great things to do here on Planet Earth and beyond!

In what could certainly be one of the boldest infrastructure developments ever announced, the Russian Government has given the go-ahead to build a transcontinental railway linking Siberia with North America. The massive undertaking would traverse the Bering Strait with the world’s longest tunnel – a project twice the length of the Chunnel between England and France. The $65 billion project aims to feed North America with raw goods from the Siberian interior and beyond, but it could also provide a key link to developing a robust renewable energy transmission corridor that feeds wind and tidal power across vast distances while linking a railway network across 3/4 of the Northern Hemisphere.

Tsunami warning issued after massive 7.3-magnitude earthquake strikes off Fukushima in Japan 

An earthquake of magnitude 7.3 struck early on Tuesday, local time, off the Japanese coast, some 67 km northeast of Iwaki, the U.S. Geological Survey said.

The USGS reported the quake with a depth of 10 km struck about 6am and tsunami waves began to hit Japan's Pacific coast about 7am.

The epicentre of the quake is near Fukushima, where an earthquake in 2011 caused a nuclear plant to have a meltdown.

Tsunami waves are estimated to reach three metres tall in areas on Tuesday.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

If a tsunami floods the reactor site, it could trigger an increase in the spontaneous fission taking place in the ruined cores down in the ground.

Scott Hennen: Dakota Access Pipeline protesters aided, trained by Seattle pros

How about some balanced coverage.

FARGO—It's been more than three months, and the anti-Dakota Access Pipeline protesters who claim to be defending tribal lands and water have only escalated their tactics in Morton County, N.D.

Between setting fires that have made a bridge impassable, throwing Molotov cocktails at law enforcement and killing local livestock, these protesters have been causing fear, terror and economic devastation.

What I've also noticed is that these eco-terrorists seem well trained and well organized, as if professionals were helping them. Who might these professionals be?

Scientists Are Predicting Polar Vortex To Bring Big Freeze And Coldest Winter For Five Years :”People Should Be Prepared For a Real Flagstaff Winter”

Polar vortex enters Northern U.S.

The stratospheric polar vortex is a large-scale region of air that is contained by a strong west-to-east jet stream that circles the polar region. This jet stream is usually referred to as the polar night jet. The polar vortex extends from the tropopause (the dividing line between the stratosphere and troposphere) through the stratosphere and into the mesosphere (above 50 km). Low values of ozone and cold temperatures are associated with the air inside the vortex.

The notice said: “We are disappointed to share the news of a voluntary recall with the Sabra community today. We’re recalling this product out of an abundance of caution after finding Listeria Monocytognes at the manufacturing facility, but not in tested finished product.”

“We want to reassure our consumers that our procedures include extensive finished product testing, and no products tested positive for contaminants. We are taking action because consumer safety is a top priority,” the notice also said.

Police have once again used violent tactics on water protectors as the fight against the Dakota Access Pipeline continues into late November.

Since August, North Dakota police have employed many violent tactics against the Standing Rock Sioux and allied “water protectors” who are fighting the Dakota Access Pipeline. On Sunday November 20, we witnessed an increase in the totalitarian tactics as the Morton County Sheriff’s office used rubber bullets, tear gas, and for the first time since conflicts began, a water cannon. There were also reports of “concussion grenades” or stun grenades being thrown by police...

Donald Trump expected to slash Nasa's climate change budget in favour of sending humans back to the moon - and beyond

US President-elect Donald Trump is set to slash Nasa's budget for monitoring climate change and instead set a goal of sending humans to the edge of the solar system by the end of the century, and possibly back to the moon.

Mr Trump, who has called climate change a "Chinese hoax", is believed to want to focus the agency on far-reaching, big banner goals in deep space rather than "Earth-centric climate change spending".

According to Bob Walker, who has advised Mr Trump on space policy, Nasa has been reduced to "a logistics agency concentrating on space station resupply and politically correct environmental monitoring".

Pluto's cold heart could be hiding an OCEAN: Dwarf planet's strange spin points to a subsurface sea

Two new papers, based on observations from Nasa's New Horizons probe, claim that a frozen nitrogen pile-up in the dwarf planet's iconic heart-shaped region may have altered Pluto's tilt.

This caused its spin to change which may have also created cracks and tensions in the crust of the dwarf planet that point towards the presence of a hidden sea, which scientists have previously said may host alien life.

In the first paper, researchers suggest a liquid ocean lying deep beneath Pluto's frozen surface is the best explanation for features revealed by the New Horizons probe.

Pluto's ocean, which is likely slushy with ice, lies 93 to 124 miles (150 to 200 km) beneath the dwarf planet's icy surface.

Medical boards threaten the careers of doctors that question Big Pharma propaganda

The American Medical Association, also known as the AMA, has recently proposed new “ethical and professional” guidelines for physicians. These guidelines would put a stop to doctors who speak out or otherwise rail against convention. The AMA is clearly an agency that has been bought by Big Pharma and is now seeking to dole out punishments to doctors who do not conform to their narrative.

Indeed, this new proposal seeks to target physicians like Dr. Oz, star of his own eponymous TV show, and outlines how physicians ought to “conduct” themselves when in front of the media. In other words, these new guidelines seek to remove freedom of speech from physicians in places where other people can hear them.

There are currently four active volcanoes on the territory of the Russian Far Eastern Kamchatka Krai — Klyuchevskoy, Shiveluch, Bezymyanny, and Karymsky. The activity of the Klyuchevsky volcano in the Russian Far Eastern region of Kamchatka has intensified again, the local department of the Russian Academy of Sciences’ geophysical service told TASS on Thursday. "In the morning, the Klyuchevsky volcano spewed a column of ash to six kilometers above the sea level. This was registered by satellites as the volcano was covered in clouds. Later the slopes of the volcano became visible, and we can see now how it spews steam, gas and ash to 5.5 kilometers above the sea level," the department said.

Will Donald Trump embrace the International Space Station?

The International Space Station (ISS) often reports breakdowns, radiation damaging its hull, and the threat of malignant bacteria. For example, about a year ago an American sensor malfunctioned, incorrectly showing an increase of hydrogen nitride. Consequently, the crew had to evacuate and move to the Russian segment for 12 hours. Genuine hydrogen nitride leaks have been frequently observed in the American segment's external thermal control system. The astronauts would have to go out into space and repair the system, replacing the broken parts. Nevertheless, late last year the national participants signed an agreement to prolong the space station's work until 2024. But will the ISS survive until that year? Russian scientists say the space station is in relatively good condition, and it's even possible to continue functioning until 2028. "Something extreme must happen for the ISS to break down entirely," said Ivan Moiseev, scientific director of the Institute of Space Policy in Moscow.

FOR THE FIRST TIME IN HISTORY, BRITISH MEDICAL JOURNAL CALLS FOR THE LEGALIZATION OF ALL DRUGS

Doctors have an “ethical responsibility” to back the legalization of drugs, the British Medical Journal (BMJ) has advised for the first time.
An editorial in the BMJ, the UK’s most widely-read medical journal, argues that laws against drug use have harmed people across the world, while stressing that drug addiction should be viewed as a health problem and police involvement must end.

The BMJ says the “war on drugs” has failed and “too often plays out as a war on the millions of people who use drugs.”

The call for reform reflects a shift in medical opinion. In June, Britain’s two leading health bodies, the Royal Society for Public Health and the Faculty of Public Health, called for the personal use of drugs to be decriminalized.

The group said criminalizing users deters them from seeking medical help and leads to long-term harm, such as exposure to hard drugs in prison, the breakup of families, and loss of employment.

It’s taken some time for word to spread due to the focus on Presidential-elect Donald Trump, but on November 8th, voters in Sonoma County successfully passed Measure M to make growing genetically modified crops illegal.

Measure M passed 55.9% to 44.1% in the county, and led to the largest ever GMO-free zone in the U.S. being formed. Jumboldt, Marin, Mendocino, Santa Cruz, and Trinity Counties have all successfully banned the cultivation of GMO crops in the past. Now, a total of 13,734 square miles is GMO-free, reports Sustainable Pulse.

FROM OBAMACARE TO TRUMPCARE: NEOLIBERALISM BREWS A SECOND HELPING OF FAILURE

What we do know is that TrumpCare, like ObamaCare, will be a neoliberal, markets-first solution. So the country will have oscillated from the left side of the Overton Window to the right, and simple, rugged, and proven single payer will still be unmentionable in polite company; it will be interesting to watch liberals squirm to avoid discussing it. Since we can cross selling insurance across state lines off as any kind of solution, I’d be surprised if TrumpCare didn’t end up looking like a crapified version of the already crapified ObamaCare.[3] For pre-existing conditions in particular, the Republican plans from 2015 all crapify the coverage (with, for example “least 12-18 months of continuous coverage” being required). Too bad the Democrat victory in 2008 was such a squandered opportunity.

Severe Allergies to Peanuts, Eggs and Dairy Directly Linked to Ingredients in Common Vaccines

Have you read The Peanut Allergy Epidemic by historian Heather Fraser?

She begins by asking us why the peanut allergy epidemic is only found in Western cultures, where at least 4 million people experience the mysterious phenomenon, yet there are virtually no reported cases in India, where peanuts just so happen to be the main ingredient in most baby food products.

Consider this: one century ago, you couldn't find anyone allergic to peanuts, but now it's commonplace for parents to send EpiPens to school for the teacher and nurse to keep near to their children, just in case someone so much as opens a snack in the room that contains peanuts, or even if someone opens a food product that was so much as manufactured in "a facility that processes peanuts."

What's wrong with the human body that it would go into anaphylactic shock from a seemingly harmless food ingredient that couldn't harm a soul a hundred years ago?

Phantom open-carry protest prompts shutdown of anti-Trump vigil, TriMet

Rumors, which ultimately proved false, of an armed counter-protest brought an anti-Donald Trump vigil to an early end Sunday night and prompted TriMet to divert all bus and MAX lines away from downtown.

Reporters from The Oregonian/OregonLive were unable to find anyone other than police officers openly carrying firearms in downtown Portland.

The persistent rumor spoke to a city on edge after several nights of violence during anti-Trump demonstrations, including the shooting of a march participant and acts of vandalism that caused at least $1 million in damage.

DA's office, waiting for police reports, temporarily drops misdemeanor charges against protesters

Two teenagers accused in the early Saturday shooting of an anti-Trump protester on the Morrison Bridge made their first appearances in court Monday.

A 14-year-old boy faces charges of attempted murder, second-degree assault with a firearm and unlawful use of a weapon allegations. Police announced his arrest after saying that one of two 18-year-olds initially arrested wasn't involved in the shooting and was released from jail.

The boy was in a car with others that was trying to get across the bridge when they got into an argument with some protesters, police and witnesses said.

In the meantime, the Multnomah County District Attorney's Office dropped, for now, most of the misdemeanor allegations that police had filed against demonstrators in recent nights until police can complete their paperwork.

Dozens of pipeline protesters arrested in latest skirmish

The same people who are financing the Trump protests are behind these oh! so peaceful protestors aka domestic terrorists.

BISMARCK, N.D. — Law officers arrested about three dozen Dakota Access oil pipeline protesters in a confrontation Friday that also shut down a state highway.

The midday incident began after about 100 protesters confronted crews doing dirt work along the pipeline route where pipe had already been laid. Workers were safety evacuated, but protesters threw rocks, vandalized equipment, slashed tires on law enforcement vehicles, and used themselves and vehicles to block a county road and state Highway 6, according to Morton County sheriff’s spokeswoman Donnell Hushka.

Mayor, police chief urge Portlanders to avoid anti-Trump protests (live updates)

This guy is an idiot and a very weak man IMHO!

Portland Mayor Charlie Hales and police Chief Mike Marshman urged Portlanders to stay home instead of joining anti-Trump protests, saying they had been hijacked by people promoting violence.

Marshman said officers were locked in a "battle" with elements of the crowd. He said police had been targets of thrown rocks and fireworks, though no officers had been injured by protesters.

He also characterized Saturday's early-morning shooting of a protester on the Morrison Bridge as the type of incident police are trying to avoid.

Hales said residents should continue to patronize Portland businesses. He also urged Portlanders frustrated with the results of Tuesday's election to channel that feeling into support of liberal causes.

Silicon Valley Technocrats On Collision Course With Populism

Silicon Valley is chock full of Technocrats who worship science and technology as they eschew legitimate political discourse. After all, the scientific engineering of society is best left to them only. Individual citizens are viewed as pesky obstacles. ? TN Editor

Tuesday’s election was an expression of voter angst that heralded a new type of populism. For Silicon Valley, it also marked the ascension of a vision starkly at odds with its own.

The world is changing faster than ever, and Donald Trump’s campaign tapped into concern about where that change is taking the country. Many of the campaign’s central issues—jobs, globalization and immigration—had in common that they were rooted, in large part, in technological change.

The populist wave Mr. Trump rode appears to be on a collision course with the fruits of technology and the people who build it.

Poll: Half of America Can’t Afford More Than $100 a Month on Health Insurance

More than half of Americans—52.5 percent—say they cannot afford to spend more than $100 a month on health insurance premiums, according to a poll from HealthPocket, a technology company that compares health plans.

The group asked survey respondents at the beginning of open enrollment what was the highest monthly premium they could afford to pay for health insurance in 2017.

More than half of respondents said $100 a month or less, while 15.9 percent said they could afford to spend $200 a month.

Just over 11 percent said they could afford $300 a month, 5.5 percent said they could afford $400 a month, and 4.8 percent said they could spend $500 a month, while and 9.8 percent said they could afford $500 or more.

“Double-digit rate increases for people purchasing insurance in the Affordable Care Act market has renewed questions regarding what people can afford to pay for coverage,” the survey states.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

We are seeing droves of people avoid regular checkups because they do not have the money to pay,and cannot afford the more expensive programs, under Obamacare, which is rekitting as I type this.

I hope President-Elect Trump finds a way of making health care more accessible and affordable for more people.

In Europe, there are many, very basic "single payer" programs which people are required to buy; need is completely matched to care, and the insurance companies make their money by selling more elaborate policies when they can.

'SAFE SPACES' ABOUND FOR STUDENTS IN 'EMOTIONAL CRISIS' OVER TRUMP

Colleges and universities nationwide are establishing "safe spaces" for students troubled by the results of the 2016 presidential election, offering everything from counseling hours to painting activities.

St. Mary’s university has embraced the trend of colleges shielding students from the presidential election, offering a safe space with “warm drinks” and “nourishment” for students who are stressed by results.

Ete Martinez Anderson, the assistant dean of Student Life, sent a school-wide email encouraging students to “take a deep breath” and console each other in the Intercultural Center (ICC) and the Women’s Resource Center (WRC).

“Whether you’re celebrating a victory or grieving a loss, let us remember to take care of each other,” Martinez Anderson wrote, informing students that they could come to the WRC to “paint, engage in creative projects, dialogue, and reflect.”

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The colleges doing this are really doing their students an horrific disservice.

Real life holds absolutely zero safe spaces, and the sooner students understand this, the better they will be able to cope with the disappointments they will have to endure along the way of becoming self-actualized human beings.

But what has to happen here, after all the consoling, the art work, and the dialogue, is that these students coming to grips with the reality of why their favored candidate didn't win the election, and taking practical steps to avoid such a situation in 2020.

1. The Clinton Cartel machine robbed Bernie Sanders of his chance at the Presidency by cheating every possible, creative way they could. That is a fact, now substantiated in various lawsuits around the country. Had Sanders been the Democratic nominee, I could have very well gotten behind him, and supported him; but the Clinton Cartel made absolutely certain that was not going to happen.

2. Although Clinton likely won the popular vote, she did not win enough votes in the Electoral College to swing the election her way. One practical thing college students may want to get behind is sponsoring legislation to do away with the electoral college completely; trust me, many Democratic Legislators may want to get behind this in a big way right now!

3. Students should advocate that the National Democratic Committee get rid of their crooked, globalist, sociopathic leaders and replace them with individuals who actually care about the people of this country. Donna Brazile should be bounced out of her position in party leadership yesterday. Perhaps this would be a meaningful, constructive way of bringing Sanders back perhaps as party co-chair with (now) Senator Tammy Duckworth, the first Asian-American Senator from Illinois who is also a disabled Veteran.

4. Students need to understand that at the end of the day, this election was a referendum on continued economic - and social -costs of globalization, versus the choice to re-embrace American nationalism; and because of all the hurt globalism has caused so many people in this country, getting their jobs offshored/outsourced to a country with ultra low labor costs, like Malaysia, where the use of slave labor is still the norm. Those jobs had been the bedrock of middle class America, and that has been collapsing before our eyes.

5. Perhaps, at the end of their "safe spaces odyssey", these students need, instead their "Buddha on the Road" moment, to see what has happened to this country over the last 12 years. These wars, promoted by both Bush and Obama, have not made us anymore "safe"; they have, however, lined the pockets of major corporations quite well, but cost We the People trillions. Domestically, effects of homelessness and hunger have escalated mightily over the last 12 years.

Homeless tent cities expand all over the US in 2016

Childhood Hunger in America

And I really hope that their first response to this is an honest anger, that things could be allowed to get so bad in this country, and then, secondly, to reflect, and ask themselves what THEY are going to do to make things better where they are? And one of the first things that comes to mind is, they can volunteer at some charity they feel good about, which does feed the homeless, help the lonely elderly, and medically fragile. That is one, positive, and way of taking ownership, locally, of some of the daunting issues facing this country today, and it is something that everyone can do, to at least a small degree.

When the Amish raise a barn, the work is done in one day, because everyone is working cooperatively, and in the spirit of good will. Having your "safe space" will, ultimately not get the barn built, and in their despair, I think this what these students really need to hang on to; a sense that they can make a positive difference by what they are doing in the community.

LEAKED EMAILS: ASPARTAME LINKED TO DIABETES, ALZHEIMER’S AND OBESITY

Diet soda is supposed to offer you the sweetness of regular soda without any additional calories. However, new information has confirmed that diet soda is actually linked to a myriad of health problems including diabetes and Alzheimer’s.

Aspartame may result in methanol toxicity, which has recently been linked to Alzheimer’s disease. Good diet and nutrition is key to helping people ward off the worst form of dementia, but many may think that diet soda is not doing their body any harm and drink it in excess despite an otherwise healthy diet.

Diet soda can also cause unwanted weight gain. While your body digests this artificial sweetener, your cravings for real sugar actually increase. The chemical can also make it so that your appetite becomes bigger, so instead of losing weight, you’ll be fighting off cravings for fatty and sugary foods.

Recently leaked emails from Podesta show that originally there were concerns about approving aspartame by the FDA altogether.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

No matter if it ultimately kills you, the FDA will usually approve a substance, if it makes money for the manufacturer.

Thinking that the FDA is there for your health and safety can prove very hazardous to your health!!

‘Mystery Ping’ From Arctic Seafloor Spooks Wildlife. Is Cthulhu Waking Up?

A mysterious “ping” or “hum” that seems to be coming from the Arctic seafloor has spooked wildlife in a remote part of northern Canada. The sound has been heard in the Fury and Hecla Strait, located in the Qikiqtaaluk Region about 75 miles from the Inuit community of Igloolik. “Our constituents as well as hunters and boaters have reported that the area in question is almost devoid of sea mammals and that hunting has been poor in the area for quite some time,” lawmaker Paul Quassa told the Nunavut Legislative Assembly last month, according to the Nunatsiaq News. The noise prompted an investigation by the Canadian military, including a 90-minute survey of the area last week with a CP-140 Aurora aircraft equipped with multiple sensors. The pilots spotted some whales and walruses, but didn’t detect any hums or pings. “The cause of the pings remains mired in mystery,” a military spokesperson told the BBC. However, locals insist the sound is still there...
