A Passionate Mind is Inquiring

Obviously there must be passion, and the question is how to revive that passion. Do not let us misunderstand each other. I mean passion in every sense, not merely sexual passion, which is a very small thing. And most of us are satisfied with that because every other passion has been destroyed-in the office, in the factory, through following a certain job, routine, learning techniques- so there is no passion left; there is no creative sense of urgency and release. Therefore sex becomes important to us, and there we get lost in petty passion which becomes an enormous problem to the narrow, virtuous mind, or else it soon becomes a habit and dies. I am using the word passion as a total thing. 

A passionate man who feels strongly is not satisfied merely with some little job, whether it be the job of a prime minister, or of a cook, or what you will. A mind that is passionate is inquiring, searching, looking, asking, demanding, not merely trying to find for its discontent some object in which it can fulfill itself and go to sleep. A passionate mind is groping, seeking, breaking through, not accepting any tradition; it is not a decided mind, not a mind that has arrived, but it is a young mind that is ever arriving.

Black money comes mainly from India: Assange

At a stage where governments around the world have tried to hide away from the embarrassment caused by WikiLeaks expose on black money, founder Julian Assange speaks exclusively to Times Now's editor-in-chief Arnab Goswami on the Swiss bank data and Indian names features in the same.

Julian Assange, made a stunning disclosure, that there could be Indian names in the data that WikiLeaks would publish. In the course of the interview, Assange appealed to Indians to absolutely not lose hope that the names of those with secret Swiss accounts will come out at one point in the future. Hinting that Wikileaks might work with specialized agencies before releasing the Swiss bank data he pulled up the Indian government for not being aggressive like Germany in going after the list of Indian account holders. In fact he said India should be more aggressive because India seems like it is losing per capita more tax money than Germany.

David Icke - The Cosmic Firewall & The Moon Matrix

David Icke is an English writer, public speaker, and former media personality best known for his views on what he calls "who and what is really controlling the world". David is one of the most controversial speakers and authors in the world. He has written 16 books explaining his position and has attracted a substantial following across the political spectrum. His 533-page The Biggest Secret (1999) has been called the conspiracy theorist's Rosetta Stone. 

In the first hour of this interview, David begins talking about the new vibrations that are coming into the world to replace the old ones. He says it is not a time for the faint-hearted. The control system in clamping down harder than ever as more people are waking up to it. David says it is a time to listen to what feels right, not what sounds right. Then, he discusses the wide reaches and purpose of the current control system which is light years beyond us. David talks about the cosmic firewall that is in place between humanity and true information. This leads us into discussing the moon matrix. It is possible the moon is being used as a blocking device from decoding real information that would change the world of humanity and also beaming other frequencies which deceive the masses and protect those in control. So what is the moon and where did it come from? We'll discuss scientific aspects of the moon as well as some legend about it. Topics discussed: 2012 doomsday, new information energetic construct, bubbles of the five senses, intuition, left brain, information hobby, truth and entertainment, collective reality, electric universe, the Moon, Saturn, DNA, switched off, meta-materials, bending light, Moon anomalies, who built the moon? Hollow moon, broadcasting signals from the moon, hollowing out, mythology, Credo Mutwa and more.

Secret Behind Secret Societies

A very dangerous Agreement with the USA!

The following have been agreed upon:-
1.PPP (READ THIS) with the US private sector.In addition, this is a FDI! The so-called, ''FOUNDATIONS'' of the many Corporates of the USA, will have a field day in India, which will ultimately be ruled over by a few ELITES. This means that, India is no longer, a Democratic Republic.
2.Financial sector reform and deepen capital markets. (As per THIS ARTICLE, the Stock Markets are Casinos).
3.Greater participation of American firms in India’s infrastructure development.
All the three are BAD for India, as EVERYTHING in India will be PRIVATIZED and OLIGARCHY will prevail.Stock Markets will be used to:-
1.Steal the wealth of the individuals and the nation, as has happened in Greece and some states in the USA itself, Saint-Etienne, France and Italy.
2.Divestment of ALL the PSUs.
The so called, ''financial sector reforms'', are anti-India policies to enable the USA and other foreigners to make money at the cost of Indians, like the FIIs are doing now, in the Stock, Commodity and Currency markets. Among the FIIs are many Investment bankers whose money is 11 times more valuable, than that of the same amount possessed by others, which includes Indian investors, due to “fractional reserve banking”.
The COMMON MAN of India faces a very dark future.
THE ONLY  THING THAT  WAS NEEDED WAS BANNING the illogical, unethical, unregulated and highly LEVERAGED,DERIVATIVES, which is being used to Bankrupt Nations and manipulate especially, the Interest Rates,Currencies, and prices of Gold, Silver and Crude oil, by the International Bankers.
3.Infrastructure will be used as a Debt Trap to bankrupt our beloved, nation.

History Channel - The Statue of Liberty Was Built to Secretly Represent Lucifer

Mark Dice is a media analyst, social critic, political activist, and author who, in an entertaining and educational way, gets people to question our celebrity obsessed culture, and the role the mainstream media plays in shaping our lives.

Mark frequently stirs up controversy from his commentaries, protests, and boycotts, and has repeatedly been featured in major media outlets around the world.

Several of Mark's YouTube videos have went viral, earning him a mention on ABC's The View, Fox News' O'Reilly Factor,, and other mainstream media outlets. Mark has also been featured in (or attacked in) the New York Post's Page Six, Rolling Stone Magazine, USA Today, The New York Daily News, and in major papers in Pakistan and Iran.

Mark Dice appears in several documentary films including Invisible Empire, and The 9/11 Chronicles, and was featured on the History Channel's Decoded. He enjoys enlightening zombies, as he calls them, (ignorant people) about the mass media's effect on our culture, pointing out Big Brother's prying eyes, and exposing elite secret societies along with scumbag politicians and their corrupt political agendas.

He also habitually calls into several top-rated talk shows, including the Sean Hannity Show, Glenn Beck, and Michael Savage, and verbally battles with the hosts on various issues since he has never been asked to be a guest on them as of yet. Audio of some of these calls are then posted online.

The term "fighting the New World Order" is used by Mark to describe some of his activities, and refers to his and others' resistance and opposition (The Resistance) to the overall system of political corruption, illegal wars, elite secret societies, mainstream media, Big Brother and privacy issues; as well as various economic and social issues.

Dice and his supporters sometimes refer to being "awake" or "enlightened" and see their knowledge of these topics as part of their own personal Resistance to the corrupt New World Order. This Resistance involves self-improvement, self-sufficiency, personal responsibility and spiritual growth.

Mark Dice is the author of several books on current events, secret societies and conspiracies, including his newest book, The New World Order: Facts & Fiction. He lives in San Diego, California.


All of Mark's books are in stock on and are also available on the Kindle reader. You may be able to order the books into a store where it can be sent in a few days. If not, then is your best bet.


What is the New World Order? Proponents say that it's an anticipated new era of global cooperation between diverse nations and cultures aimed at ushering in a utopia providing all the earth's citizens with everything they need.

Detractors claim it's the systematic take-over by secret societies, quasi-government entities and corporations who are covertly organizing a global socialist all-powerful government which aims to regulate every aspect of people's lives, rendering them a perpetual working-class while the elite leadership lives in luxury.

Mark Dice looks at the evidence, claims, and conspiracy theories as he takes you down the rabbit hole to The New World Order. This is a companion for Mark's previous book, The Illuminati: Facts & Fiction.


Secret societies have both fascinated and frightened people for hundreds of years. Often the infamous Illuminati is mentioned as the core of conspiracies which span the globe. The Illuminati is actually a historical secret society which had goals of revolutions and world domination dating back to the 1770s.

Since then, rumors and conspiracy theories involving the Illuminati continue to spread, sometimes finding their way into popular novels like Dan Brown's Angels & Demons and Hollywood movies like Lara Croft: Tomb Raider.

Some men have even come forward claiming to be former members, offering details of what they allege are the inner workings of the organization. When you sift through all of the information available on the subject, you may be surprised that the truth is stranger than fiction. In The Illuminati: Facts & Fiction, author and occult expert Mark Dice separates history from Hollywood and shows why tales of the secret society won't die.


The Resistance Manifesto by Mark Dice contains 450 pages of extensively researched and documented information drawing from declassified documents, mainstream news articles, religious texts, and personal interviews. A dark web of evil is exposed like never before, making Bible Prophecy and the New World Order crystal clear.

Learn the most powerful information about the Illuminati, plans for the rise of the Antichrist, the institutions, people, and powers involved, and how you can fight them.

Understanding Passion

Is it a religious life to punish oneself? Is mortification of the body or of the mind a sign of understanding? Is self-torture a way to reality? Is chastity denial? Do you think you can go far through renunciation? Do you really think there can be peace through conflict? Does not the means matter infinitely more than the end? The end may be, but the means is. The actual, the what is, must be understood and not smothered by determinations, ideals, and clever rationalizations. Sorrow is not the way of happiness. 

The thing called passion has to be understood and not suppressed or sublimated, and it is no good finding a substitute for it. Whatever you may do, any device that you invent, will only strengthen that which has not been loved and understood. To love what we call passion is to understand it. To love is to be in direct communion; and you cannot love something if you resent it, if you have ideas, conclusions about it. How can you love and understand passion if you have taken a vow against it? A vow is a form of resistance, and what you resist ultimately conquers you. Truth is not to be conquered; you cannot storm it; it will slip through your hands if you try to grasp it. Truth comes silently, without your knowing. What you know is not truth, it is only an idea, a symbol. The shadow is not the real.

The Most Powerful Man In The World? The “Black” Pope

Count Hans Kolvenbach—The Jesuit’s General


 So, you thought you were pretty well informed by now about all of the main players on the “conspiracy” playing field?  You’ve maybe been hearing for years about (or bumped into on your own) the various elements of society who control our world from behind the scenes.

You’ve gotten familiar with the role played by, for instance, the Khazarian Zionists (who invented the word “Jew” to disguise their adopted heritage, as distinguised from the biblical Judeans), or the role played by the Banksters (banking gangsters) controlling the economies of the world, by the CFR (Council on Foreign Relations), the Trilateral Commission, the Bilderbergers, the Committee of 300 (the 17 wealthiest so-called “elite” families)—the Rothschilds in England and Rockefellers in America and Bronfmans in Canada, and on and on, comprising the physical power structure of the New World Order puppets under the direction of darkly motivated, other-dimensional “master deceivers” commonly known as Lucifer or Satan and their “fallen angel” cohorts.
While all of those details contribute to understanding the Larger Picture, what you are about to read fills in a most important Missing Link in this entire structure.  And I don’t mean a little side issue; I mean a link so central—yet so well hidden from general public view, and for so long—that even the most studied of “conspiracy theory” scholars probably have not put together much of the information that is going to be presented here.
To call the following outlay “controversial” and “sensitive” is about as mild an understatement of the truth of the matter as can be made!  This missing link changes the entire slant of the entire playing field! 
After months of anticipation and weeks of preparation, I was finally able to speak with Vatican Assassins author Eric Jon Phelps on Tuesday, March 14.  There was simply no other way to cover Eric’s historic masterpiece spanning, literally, five centuries, than to just ask questions covering huge spans of time and major historical events.  It took us almost four hours to accomplish the task, yet we could easily have gone on for another forty.
We here at The SPECTRUM are simply unwilling to reduce the importance of this work by presenting it in a too distilled fashion.  In fact, in order to share this material with at least some of the pertinent backup, Eric has granted us permission to print (directly after the interview) several excerpts from his soon-to-be-published book which will help you in understanding certain aspects of this magnificently important and broad-sweeping story.  The missing link is surely a central link.
Let’s call this story the “Jesuit-Vatican connection” to the unfolding New World Order agenda.  You make up your own mind just how absolutely central, yet well hidden, has been this link!  There’s a good reason the secret Vatican library is so extensive and yet remains so intact from outside intrusion, despite the many others who would like to possess such a collection of information detailing much “censored” data about our true, otherworldy cultural heritage. 
When one reads a work like Vatican Assassins, one can’t help but reflect back on the purposely “adjusted” and watered down and boring moments in high school history class.  Meanwhile, the true history of what has gone on is dynamic and full of calculated intrigue.
In this business, I’ve heard and read a lot of things.  But when I had to pick my jaw up off the floor during the reading of certain historical portions in Eric’s book—well, let me just say that Truth certainly is stranger, and far more interesting, than the many fictions we’ve been led to believe are historical fact.  And yet The Truth does fit together like the pieces of a jigsaw puzzle.
This book SHOULD be a best-seller, but it is hardly likely to achieve such general attention—considering how well controlled and censored is the publishing business.  Thus is the reason for our lengthy presentation of this most astonishing and critically important material here in The SPECTRUM.
We are in a time of Truth being revealed from all directions.  And there is probably no more fundamental, mind-rattling, and previous notions-shattering example of that than what is being presented here.  The interview is directly followed by a number of pertinent excerpts from  Eric’s eye-opening book—which will be available July 1.


Illuminati is top in the Masonic pyramid!

In the movie Star Wars figures a force called The Dark Side. The Dark Side symbolizes the evil and the hidden power structure that rules the earth. Illuminati is an important element in The Dark Side.
Illuminati is a secret society such as doing demon-interaction through various rituals. Illuminati has also been an active participant in the scenes during the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution and other important events. A man of power that almost explicitly admitted that the Illuminati was his superior and invisible puppet master was the U.S. president "FDR" Roosevelt. It was FDR who placed Illuminati symbol (the pyramid with the eye) in one-dollar notes.

History Channel Proudly “Outs” Illuminati Luciferian Facts to Mainstream America

World's power elite is full of occultists and devil worshipers!

By Hans Gaarder

In the historical work The Bible says:
"Then the devil took him (Jesus) with him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, saying:" All this I will give you if you fall down and worship me. ". Then Jesus said to him: "Depart from me, Satan!" ... Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and ministered to him. " (Matthew 4, 8-11)
Basic element in the universe according to modern physics is awareness. Consciousness exists ay various levels called densities or dimensions. Certain consciousness "entities" ("entities") in parallel dimensions are called demons. "Satan" ("devil") is a demon. There are other demons like Moloch, Magog, Lucifer and Choronzon. In some cultures called jinns demons. Demons are able to influence people's lives, including giving power to people who have certain forms of interaction with them.
What is striking to many people who have or have had a lot of power in the world, is that they have been active participants in occult rituals involving demon-digital (demon Invocation). In modern times, include among others George HW Bush, Henry Kissinger, David Rockefeller, Dick Cheney, Tony Blair and Peter-Hans Kolve Bach (the black pope in the Vatican) and William F. Buckley Jr.. (In NATO Dept. of mind control).
The fact that these persons have participated in the demonstration invokeringsritualer and has received great earthly power is an indication that the "Satan's temptations" of Jesus were real, ie. that a demon is able to provide underground power and wealth to certain people, "by appointment".
 Demons have their agenda and their needs as they live in our dimension to the extent that humans are contributing to this. Demons example. grouped according to the criteria "service to self" and "service two Others." This means that the demons that promote their own agendas, for example. using his "worshipers" useful idiots for their agendas (service to self) is called - demons - as bodiless consciousnesses whose agenda to help others including humans (servicing to Others) are called "angels".
People may like to know also grouped according to "service to self and service to Others criterion. A special group of people is "service to self" people who are in league with the "service to self" demons. In the movie Star Wars, this diabolical partnership symbolized by Darth Vader (who represents the black pope in the Vatican) and The Evil Emperor (representing a service to self demonstration unit - satan).
Otherwise, some demons pranksters who like to fool people, for example. of conveying telepathic message which is called "channeling." An Australian channeling medium who calls herself Blossom Goodchild managed eg. to get "half the world" to believe that a huge cosmic revelation would take place 14 October 2008, without anything happening that day. It is quite possible that she has been subjected to a fool-demon.

Another medium is American Nancy Lieder. She claims on her website that she receives information via the channeling of aliens residing on Earth (which she admittedly has not met eyeball-to-eyeball ...). There is a possibility that Nancy Lieder receive "not assured" info-feed from a demon who find this too well.
For those who choose not to receive "demo services" - are demons just a natural element of life, like migratory birds, mosquitoes in the jungle or the penguins at the South Pole: We notice nothing special to them, but we now know that they are out there or elsewhere.
A former Satanist and demon invocer have said it this way: "Satan is like a duck, leave it in peace it lets you in peace." Demon Lucifer ("bringer of light" - which is one of the great secrets of Masonry) can be considered as a shopkeeper offering their services for a fee. It is possible to say no, but if you accept you must also expect to pay the price.
As Eminem raps in the song "Say Goodbye Hollywood":
"If I Could go back, I never woulda rapped
In two days of my soul the devil, I'll never get it back
I just want to leave this game with level head Intact "
"Demon-light interaction is an important element of Freemasonry, which, among other things is manifested in the checkered floors that many of the rituals performed. The white squares symbolize this world, while the black squares symbolize the occult, demon world.
Hidden powers within the secret societies have by controlling practically the entire information flow in the western countries (education / media / publishing / religion, etc.) until the Internet came - "to set us free" - managed to keep hidden from the scientific existence of such bodiless awareness devices, aka demons / jinns, despite the fact that this is an item that is part of many cultures, myths and legends:

- The story of Aladdin's lamp is quite directly about the demon-invokering.
- In JRR Tolkien's book and the blockbuster "Lord of the Rings" there is a supernatural power that people are in possession after performing certain actions (taking on the ring), symbolizing the power of the demon-interaction can give. The plot of Lord of the Rings is about to have placed the power-giving the ring a place where it is out of reach for people, in other words. to close the gates transdimensjonale for good, so that the earthly life is stripped of inappropriate and negative demon-interference.

"5 Gateways" Documentary

In association with "Smiling Dragonfly", detailing the five key expansions of consciousness on our Journey of Enlightenment and Ascension. Info:

To Love Is to Be Chaste

This problem of sex is not simple and it cannot be solved on its own level. To try to solve it purely biologically is absurd; and to approach it through religion or to try to solve it as though it were a mere matter of physical adjustment, of glandular action, or to hedge it in with taboos and condemnations is all too immature, childish, and stupid. It requires intelligence of the highest order. To understand ourselves in our relationship with another requires intelligence far more swift and subtle than to understand nature.But we seek to understand without intelligence; we want immediate action, an immediate solution, and the problem becomes more and more important. . . . 

Love is not mere thought; thoughts are only the external action of the brain. Love is much deeper, much more profound, and the profundity of life can be discovered only in love. Without love, life has no meaning and that is the sad part of our existence. We grow old while still immature; our bodies become old, fat, and ugly, and we remain thoughtless. Though we read and talk about it, we have never known the perfume of life. Mere reading and verbalizing indicates an utter lack of the warmth of heart that enriches life; and without that quality of love, do what you will, join any society, bring about any law, you will not solve this problem. To love is to be chaste.Mere intellect is not chastity. The man who tries to be chaste in thought, is unchaste, because he has no love. Only the man who loves is chaste, pure, incorruptible.

Alien Earths — 2 billion of them are out there

By Charles Q. Choi
Roughly one out of every 37 to one out of every 70 sunlike stars in the sky might harbor an alien Earth, a new study reveals.
 These findings hint that billions of Earthlike planets might exist in our galaxy, researchers added.

These new calculations are based on data from the Kepler space telescope, which in February wowed the globe by revealing more than 1,200 possible alien worlds, including 68 potentially Earth-size planets. The spacecraft does so by looking for the dimming that occurs when a world transits or moves in front of a star.
Scientists at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., focused on roughly Earth-size planets within the habitable zones of their stars — that is, orbits where liquid water can exist on the surfaces of those worlds.

After the researchers analyzed the four months of data in this initial batch of readings from Kepler, they determined that 1.4 percent to 2.7 percent of all sunlike stars are expected to have Earthlike planets — ones that are between 0.8 and two times Earth's diameter and within the habitable zones of their stars.
"This means there are a lot of Earth analogs out there — 2 billion in the Milky Way galaxy," researcher Joseph Catanzarite, an astronomer at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, told "With that large a number, there's a good chance life and maybe even intelligent life might exist on some of those planets. And that's just our galaxy alone — there are 50 billion other galaxies."

After three to four years of Kepler data are investigated, the scientists predict a total of 12 Earthlike worlds will be found. Four of these have already been seen in the four months of data released so far, they added. Kepler mission scientists have estimated that, altogether, there could be 50 billion planets in the Milky Way, though not all would be Earth-size worlds within the habitable zone of their local stars.
When it comes to the 100 nearest sunlike stars within a few dozen light years, these findings suggest that only about two might have Earthlike worlds. Still, Catanzarite did note that red dwarfs might host Earthlike planets as well, and that such stars are far more common than sunlike stars.

Although researchers will find it much harder to detect an Earth-size planet transiting in front of dim red dwarfs, scientists are currently trying to detect such planets around these stars by the gravitational tugs they would exert on each other.
"I'd expect to hear one day about habitable Earth analogs around these stars," Catanzarite said.
Catanzarite and his colleague Michael Shao detailed their findings online March 8 in a paper submitted to the Astrophysical Journal.

Love Is Incapable of Adjustment

Love is not a thing of the mind, is it? Love is not merely the sexual act, is it? Love is something which the mind can not possibly conceive. Love is something which cannot be formulated. And without love, you become related; without love, you marry. Then, in that marriage, you "adjust yourselves" to each other. Lovely phrase! You adjust yourselves to each other, which is again an intellectual process, is it not? . . . This adjustment is obviously a mental process. All adjustments are. But, surely, love is incapable of adjustment. You know, sirs, don't you, that if you love another, there is no "adjustment." There is only complete fusion. Only when there is no love do we begin to adjust. And this adjustment is called marriage. 

Hence, marriage fails, because it is the very source of conflict, a battle between two people. It is an extraordinarily complex problem, like all problems, but more so because the appetites, the urges, are so strong. So, a mind which is merely adjusting itself can never be chaste. A mind which is seeking happiness through sex can never be chaste. Though you may momentarily have, in that act, self-abnegation, self-forgetfulness, the very pursuit of that happiness, which is of the mind, makes the mind unchaste. Chastity comes into being only where there is love.

Scientists Issue Urgent World-Wide Warning on Bacteria with Superbug Gene

'Nuclear meltdowns. Oil spills. More strife in Africa and the Middle East. GMO tainted crops. So what else could happen? Unfortunately, another problem has surfaced that has scientists calling for the "urgent need for global action". This time, it's worrisome news about a gene that turns bacteria into not just superbugs -- but SUPER superbugs.

Bottom line: this gene (dubbed the New Delhi metallo-s-lactamase 1 gene, NDM-1, for short) enables bacteria to resist virtually any and perhaps all antibiotics.'

Politics vs Science: Understanding Cannabis Therapeutics Before It Is Censored

by Kris Hermes
April 03, 2011
from NaturalNews Website
There's major breaking news on medical marijuana:
Now the National Cancer Institute has officially recognized the medicinal properties of medical marijuana for cancer sufferers. 
About the author
Kris Hermes, Media Specialist Americans for Safe Access

A milestone quietly occurred last month, and one the federal government would prefer to ignore.
Yet, it could mean a step in the right direction for hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people who use a centuries-old botanical medicine: cannabis, otherwise know as marijuana.

According to the Washington Independent, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) changed its website on March 17th and for the first time listed cannabis as a Complementary Alternative Medicine (CAM).
At that time, the NCI website read:
"The potential benefits of medicinal Cannabis for people living with cancer include antiemetic effects, appetite stimulation, pain relief, and improved sleep. In the practice of integrative oncology, the health care provider may recommend medicinal Cannabis not only for symptom management but also for its possible direct antitumor effect."
And just in case the issue of medical efficacy was in question, NCI further stated that:
"Cannabis has been used for medicinal purposes for thousands of years prior to its current status as an illegal substance."
Besides the obvious "It's about time" retort to the inclusion of cannabis in the CAM listing, there is definitely more here to this decades-long story of the struggle between politics and science.
If the symptoms of cancer and the side effects from treatment can be ameliorated or fought-off with medical cannabis,
  • Wouldn't that be worth significant research investment?
  • And, wouldn't the value of that research increase considerably if cannabis therapeutically benefited people with an array of other medical conditions?
  • What if science showed that cannabis could halt or diminish the growth of tumors?
Unfortunately, despite promising studies on the effects of cannabis on tumor growth and a host of other scientific investigations into the therapeutic benefits of cannabis - mostly conducted outside of the United States - we have failed to rise to the occasion.
Cannabis used for research in the U.S. is tightly controlled by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the National Institutes on Drug Abuse (NIDA). The research that does occur is narrowly focused by NIDA on the supposed abuse potential of cannabis, bypassing vast areas of efficacy ripe for investigation.

In 2007, DEA Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) Mary Ellen Bittner ruled in a case attempting to expand and diversify the production of research cannabis in the U.S. that such research was "in the public interest."
However, DEA Administrator Michele Leonhart ignored her own ALJ's recommendations and denied the petition that would have broken a 40-year old monopoly on federal research cannabis production, housed at the University of Mississippi. The federal monopoly on cannabis cultivation is complemented by a Byzantine approval process that would have made Franz Kafka proud.

With these tactics, the government has held a pretty tight lid on cannabis research over the years - an obstructionist's approach really. But prioritizing politics over science is a tenuous affair, full of contradictions and hypocrisy.

Take for instance the revisions NCI made to its website not two weeks after it listed cannabis as a Complementary Alternative Medicine.
Just to make sure its readers didn't think it was endorsing the use of medical cannabis, NCI reminded us that,
"The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has not approved the use of Cannabis as a treatment for any medical condition..."
However, more importantly, NCI removed reference to a "possible direct antitumor effect."
They wouldn't want to give the impression that cannabis should be further researched, would they? After feeling some heat from mainstream media outlets, NCI offered an explanation for its apparent shiftiness around cannabis.
Craftily, NCI distanced itself from the Physician Data Query (PDQ) Editorial Boards, which are responsible for the website content (i.e. the content on cannabis).
"PDQ Editorial Boards review current evidence," and "do not make recommendations," said NCI in a written response.

"Their work is editorially independent of [NCI]," and "The summary on Cannabis and cannabinoids does not represent a policy statement of NCI or NIH (National Institutes of Health)."
Okay, this is where it gets interesting.

All of the government double-speak aside, the NCI website still states that cannabis has been used medicinally for millennia and that oncologists may recommend it for cancer "symptom management."
Pretty bold statements for a website, whether from an editorial department or not. Now, NCI happens to be one of 11 agencies within the National Institutes of Health (NIH), which is under the authority of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). The problem is that HHS has consistently maintained that cannabis is a 'dangerous drug' with no medical value.
Specifically, HHS has publicly stated that cannabis,
"has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States."
The contradictions don't stop there.
The same production facility at the University of Mississippi that selectively disburses research cannabis also mails out literally pounds of the dried plant each year to the remaining four patients who qualified for the federal Investigational New Drug program.

The NCI website recognition also comes as a petition to reclassify medical cannabis has nearly reached its 10th anniversary with no response from the federal government.
Since the Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis (CRC) filed its petition in 2002, dozens more studies have been conducted recognizing the therapeutic effects of cannabis, eight more states passed medical marijuana laws (bringing the total to 15), and the country's two largest physician groups - American Medical Association and American College of Physicians - have both called for a review of marijuana's status as a Schedule I substance.

Here is the chance for the federal government to come clean, recognize the evidence and reclassify cannabis so that patients in the U.S. can use it without fear of reprisal no matter where they live.
Yet, based on historical precedent, the cards are stacked against patients. In 1988, the DEA denied a rescheduling petition despite strong judicial condemnation of marijuana's Schedule I classification.
The DEA's own Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young ruled on the petition, commenting that,
"Marijuana in its natural form is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man."
Although final determinations on rescheduling petitions are made by DEA, the review process relies heavily on recommendations from HHS, the federal department that oversees NCI.

Another lesser-known contradiction of federal cannabis policies has to do with the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) pill Marinol.
Though ineffective for many medical cannabis patients, Marinol will go off patent this year and a number of companies are vying for generic licenses. Companies are asking the government to allow them to grow cannabis in order to extract the natural form of THC, the primary active chemical in the plant used in the pill.
Marinol is currently made with synthetic THC, but it is cheaper to extract the chemical from the plant.

The hypocrisy will soon be too much for even the federal government to bear. The science on cannabis will eventually prevail over politics. It's just not acceptable to hold millions of sick Americans hostage to such a political double standard.
It's time for the Obama Administration to recognize the science, act with integrity, and reschedule cannabis.

The Truth of Silence

T Stokes – April 7, 2011

Almost 70 years ago on May 10 1941, Hitler sent his deputy Rudolph Hess to Britain to try to a stop to World War II before it became the all-consuming conflict we know of today.

The offer was for Germany to pull back all its forces and put the map back to where it was before war broke out. Hitler also sought an agreement to put an end to the bombing of civilian targets.

In short Hitler wanted a peace accord with Britain and its Commonwealth allies so he could concentrate his efforts on what he saw as the real threat to Germany, Communist Russia.

The year before in late May through early June, most of the British Expeditionary Force had evaded capture by Germany’s invading armies in France. When in Churchill’s words “the whole root and core and brain of the British Army” had been stranded at Dunkirk and seemed about to perish or be captured.

It was almost as if they had been allowed to escape, as if even then Hitler still had hopes for an alliance with Britain. 

For much of what follows I owe a debt of gratitude to the Bletchley Park code breaker John Burrows whose remit was the Hess coded signals, and Churchill secretaries Joan Bright-Astley and Patrick Kinna.

Patrick claimed that the Focus group that backed Churchill were vampire like Jewish bankers who twisted everything backwards and were jocularly known not as the Focus group but the Sucof group. These bankers wanted revenge on Germany for banning them and their usurious banking practises. These same bankers under Juan March had also bribed Franco to keep Spain out of the war; so Churchill was afraid that their apparent anti communism might make them side with Hitler.

Even at that late juncture the war could have been stopped had Winston Churchill and his financial backers not been committed to it.

However as I’ve claimed at lectures, Hess’s seizure was an MI6 ‘sting’ operation to bring him into British hands. This despite the fact that most British intelligence personnel were against the war, which is why Churchill started the Special Operations Executive recruiting them from left leaning, pro communist linguists.

The TV producer John Leighs statement fits what we know; when he said Hess’s arrival was expected and his father who was in MI6 was told, and I quote: “get into your motorbike and sidecar and go and pick up a senior German official and bring him back here, use utmost haste before the others get to him”.

The “others” I take to mean Churchill’s men.

Remember that Neville Chamberlain previously commissioned a secret 4-year investigation into Hitler and the Third Reich, which concluded that Germany was not a threat to Britain but to Russia; which is why when Britain was the world’s biggest sea power, Germany did not build up hers believing that Britain could join them against Russia.

Incidentally Chamberlain, like intelligence chief Vernon Kell, the king’s brother the Duke of Kent and Polish leader General Sikorski were all murdered because they disagreed with Churchill’s plans for war. While the head of the British naval intelligence Admiral Barry Domville was incarcerated without trial throughout the war for insisting that the Soviets, not Germany, was the real threat.

So closely did Neville Chamberlain’s government work with Germany against the Communist threat prior to WWII that Joachim Von Ribbentrop, the German diplomat asked permission from both governments if he could retire to Cornwall. The author Andrew Lanyon spent 3 years researching this and claimed that Ribbentrop loved the region, particularly St Ives. While Hitler himself wanted Britain to be a holiday retreat for all Anglo-Saxon peoples.

Because the Russian royal family were murdered in 1917 in the Rothschild sponsored revolution, Britain’s own Royal family who were close to their Russian cousins, were terrified of a communist take over and secretly supported Hitler. Even while the Queen Mother was being particularly vocal about how awful Hitler was, she was secretly sending money to the Nazis.

This despite her well-known miserliness reveals how afraid the Royal Family was of communism. While the real reason for the abdication of the immensely popular King Edward VIII had nothing to do with Wallace Simpson, but his continual peacemaking efforts with Nazi Germany.

The British Home Secretary Herbert Morrison, a senior member of the Jewish underground supporting Russia, is on record as saying that he “wished to see Bolshevisation all across Europe”.

The records for Manton Court where Rudolph Hess was held are still in the restricted archives. Although Hess was continually drugged and beaten, never once did he tell who the supporters for peace were either in the Royal family or outside it. And although he was locked up throughout the war he was still found guilty at Nuremberg and remained imprisoned for the rest of his life.

There have been many questions about whether the man held at Spandau was indeed Hess and if he did in fact commit suicide in 1987.

The war department propaganda operative Sefton Delmer said in a rare radio interview that Hess was incarcerated and subsequently murdered to stop him from telling what really happened. Now I don’t have any political leanings either way but I do feel that after 70 years we should know the truth of why we declared war on Germany when WWII could have been stopped with Hess’s visit.

As far as I’m concerned this exposes Winston Churchill for the traitor he really was.

The Petty Tyrant

A petty tyrant is a person who causes distress by imposing his/her will on others using psychological pressure rather than physical force.  The petty tyrant feels he may impose his will because he believes that he is a superior being and because he wants to operate from a position of authority.

Petty tyrants are the button-pushers, the individuals that have the ability to throw things off-balance for you if you let them. Many petty tyrants are unaware that they are the cause of so much frustration.  They are effective teachers because they force the warrior to closely monitor their own reactions and habitual behaviors.  The result is mindfulness and the ability to shift the assemblage point, even if ever so slightly, in order to loosen the fixation to the conditioned response that causes the reaction in the first place.  

Castaneda believed that by looking at the petty tyrant through a different filter, a person could not only co-exist with a petty tyrant but also benefit from the relationship.  This type of relationship would be most common in the workplace, school or other public forum when you have no choice but to be in close proximity to the petty tyrant.  The challenge for the warrior is to try to consciously get along with this co-worker without being petty yourself. It’s a “rise above it” opportunity that could challenge one to the core.

Don Miguel Ruiz summarizes by saying “don’t take anything personally.”  This is the biggest gift of the petty tyrant.  To be able to recognize that even though you will be annoyed to no end by the petty tyrant one must not allow themselves to be energetically attached to the petty tyrant.  They are ruthless and are often painfully consistent in throwing someone off of the center quickly and effectively.  To fall prey to a petty tyrant means that you allow yourself to become agitated repeatedly by the same words, behaviors and attitudes over and over again.

The freedom arrives when the petty tyrant no longer affects you.  You are in their presence and they are the same they have always been.  Annoying to no end, distracting and even disruptive but they just don’t have the same affect on you anymore. You are no longer annoyed or imbalanced by them.  You have accomplished the feat of shifting your assemblage point so that you no longer perceive annoyances in the same manner you did in the past and you have successfully severed the energetic stronghold that the petty tyrant had on your self-importance.  In fact you can’t even remember what it was that annoyed you so much in the first place. 

This is the gift.  The petty tyrant pushes and pushes and pushes until the very thing(s) that bothered you about them in the first place no longer do.  Unwittingly, they set the stage for growth in areas you may not have even realized should be addressed.  The petty tyrant can stop your world by activating a series of emotions and responses within you that you could not even imagine existed.  They are, in their own right, a portal for deepening your quest for freedom.

Even the worst tyrants can bring delight, provided, of course, that one is a warrior.  This may be incomprehensible to those who are in the middle of working with one of the nastiest petty tyrants.  How can someone who causes so much emotional turmoil and revulsion possibly bring delight?  The delight is found in the moment that the warrior rises above the tyranny and recognizes how utterly ridiculous the seriousness of the petty tyrant is!  Petty tyrants are, for the most part, trying desperately to become stronger by stealing your personal power, to build up their own egos by belittling you and pushing you around.  The moment you pull the carpet out from under them and stop energetically feeding them leaves them in such a state of confusion and no other choice but to go and find their next “victim”. 

The petty tyrant teaches the warrior to develop a strategy utilizing the four attributes of warriorship:  control, discipline, forbearance, and timing.  As a result the warrior deepens so much so into these four attributes that it may be a very long time until the next petty tyrant appears.  And then, the ultimate pleasure arises when you become aware that you have become someone else’s petty tyrant.  And the gift, in this case, may be pure awareness and detachment to the petty tyrant as the result of your fluidity and energetic efficiency.
