Agenda 21

Agenda 21


Those who follow Glenn Beck might be aware that Tuesday marks the release of his latest book, “Agenda 21,” the suspenseful and perhaps sobering tale of a futuristic America in which a UN-led program spawned an authoritarian state where individuals are stripped of all personal rights and freedoms.
Oddly, Beck’s novel is not simply a work of fiction, but based on an actual program created by the United Nations by the very same name — “Agenda 21″ — which, according to the UN’s own website, is a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments and major groups, in every area in which human impacts on the environment.”
In so many words, the United Nations seeks to co-opt, via individual governments, and eventually, a “one-world government,” privately held land under the auspices of ensuring its “sustainability.” Worse still, the UN’s Agenda 21 has even laid out plans for “depopulation” or rather, “population control.” If it sounds like something out of George Orwell’s 1984, that is because Agenda 21′s tenets are eerily in line with the demented alternate reality Orwell himself had imagined while scribing the pages of his famed novel.
“Sustainable development” is the catch-phrase Beck urged his Monday evening viewers to be leery of.
Where one can live and what land should be designated for would, under fully-realized Agenda 21 plan, be controlled by the United Nations and a future one-world government. Consider the following section from the UN website on Agenda 21′s plan for “promoting sustainable human settlement development.” Emphasis added:
The overall human settlement objective is to improve the social, economic and environmental quality of human settlements and the living and working environments of all people, in particular the urban and rural poor. Such improvement should be based on technical cooperation activities, partnerships among the public, private and community sectors and participation in the decision-making process by community groups and special interest groups such as women, indigenous people, the elderly and the disabled.These approaches should form the core principles of national settlement strategies. In developing these strategies, countries will need to set priorities among the eight programme areas in this chapter in accordance with their national plans and objectives, taking fully into account their social and cultural capabilities. Furthermore, countries should make appropriate provision to monitor the impact of their strategies on marginalized and disenfranchised groups, with particular reference to the needs of women.
7.5. The programme areas included in this chapter are:
(a) Providing adequate shelter for all;
(b) Improving human settlement management;
(c) Promoting sustainable land-use planning and management;
(d) Promoting the integrated provision of environmental infrastructure: water, sanitation, drainage and solid-waste management;
(e) Promoting sustainable energy and transport systems in human settlements;
(f) Promoting human settlement planning and management in disaster-prone areas;
(g) Promoting sustainable construction industry activities;
(h) Promoting human resource development and capacity-building for human settlement development.
Watch below as Beck explains exactly what Agenda 21 is and how everyday Americans are already experiencing its implementation, perhaps without even realizing it. The videos that follow feature Agenda 21 experts — even one self-proclaimed “liberal democrat” — delving deeper into this sinister-sounding agenda. They discuss how the program has slipped under the radar, working its way into everyday life slowly but surely, and what the outcomes of full implementation would be.

“Wildly liberal” Democrat, Rosa Koire:
Vince Flynn, author of “The Last Man,” also joined Beck on the program to discuss Agenda 21 and how both of their novels have taken real life events and woven them into fictional tales. Beck noted that he will be criticized for the fact that his book on Agenda 21 is fictional, but that the subject matter is, nonetheless, very real.  What’s more, “it’s what the left does with every single movie you’ve ever seen,” Beck noted astutely.

Agenda 21 Is Being Rammed Down The Throats Of Local Communities All Over America

Have you ever heard of Agenda 21?  If not, don’t feel bad, because most Americans haven’t.  It is essentially a blueprint for a “sustainable world” that was introduced at the UN Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in 1992.  Since then, it has been adopted by more than 200 countries and it has been modified and updated at other UN environmental summits.  The philosophy behind Agenda 21 is that our environmental problems are the number one problem that we are facing, and that those problems are being caused by human activity.  Therefore, according to Agenda 21 human activity needs to be tightly monitored, regulated and controlled for the greater good.  Individual liberties and freedoms must be sacrificed for the good of the planet.  If you are thinking that this sounds like it is exactly the opposite of what our founding fathers intended when they established this nation, you would be on the right track.  Those that promote the philosophy underlying Agenda 21 believe that human activity must be “managed” and that letting people make their own decisions is “destructive” and “dangerous”.  Sadly, the principles behind Agenda 21 are being rammed down the throats of local communities all over America, and most of the people living in those communities don’t even realize it.
So how is this being done?  Well, after Agenda 21 was adopted, an international organization known as the “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives” (ICLEI) was established to help implement the goals of Agenda 21 in local communities.  One thing that they learned very quickly was that the “Agenda 21″ label was a red flag for a lot of people.  It tended to create quite a bit of opposition on the local level.
As they try to implement their goals, they very rarely use the term “Agenda 21″ anymore.  Instead, they use much more harmless sounding labels such as “smart growth”, “comprehensive land use planning” and especially “sustainable development”.
So just because something does not carry the Agenda 21 label does not mean that it is not promoting the goals of Agenda 21.
The goals of Agenda 21 are not only being implemented in the United States.  This is a massive worldwide effort that is being coordinated by the United Nations.  An article that was posted on discussed some of the history of Agenda 21…
In simplified terms, Agenda 21 is a master blueprint, or guidelines, for constructing “sustainable” communities. Agenda 21 was put forth by the UN’s Commission on Sustainable Development, and was adopted by over 200 countries (signed into “soft law” by George Bush Sr.) at the United Nations Rio Conference in 1992. In 1994 the President’s Council for Sustainable Development was created via Executive Order by Bill Clinton to begin coordinating efforts at the Federal level to make the US Agenda 21 compliant.
The same year that Bill Clinton established the President’s Council for Sustainable Development, the International Code Council was also created.
The International Code Council has developed a large number of “international codes” which are intended to replace existing building codes all over the United States.  The following is a list of these codes from Wikipedia
  • International Building Code
  • International Residential Code
  • International Fire Code
  • International Plumbing Code
  • International Mechanical Code
  • International Fuel Gas Code
  • International Energy Conservation Code
  • ICC Performance Code
  • International Wildland Urban Interface Code
  • International Existing Building Code
  • International Property Maintenance Code
  • International Private Sewage Disposal Code
  • International Zoning Code
  • International Green Construction Code
These codes are very long and exceedingly boring, and those that write them know that hardly anyone will ever read them.
And for the most part, they contain a lot of things that are contained in existing building codes or that are common sense.
But a lot of poison has also been inserted into these codes.  If you read them carefully, the influence of Agenda 21 is painfully obvious.
Unfortunately, even most of the local politicians that are adopting these codes don’t take the time to read them.  Most of them just assume that they are “updating” their existing building codes.
So what often happens is that there will be fights in local communities between citizens that are concerned about the encroachment of Agenda 21 and local politicians who regard such talk as nonsense.  The following is an example of what is happening all over the nation
Summit Hill Borough Council last night unanimously adopted the “2012 edition of the International Property Maintenance Code,” but not before some audience members expressed vehement opposition to it.
An overflow crowd of 34 people attended the meeting, with some there to specifically voice their displeasure.
Sandy Dellicker, a borough resident, said she was against using an “international” maintenance code, arguing that it falls under the plan of Agenda 21 of the United Nations; an agenda for the 21st Century.
She said, “UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the action plan to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all information, all energy, and all human beings in the world.”
“This is not a conspiracy theory,” she told the council. “This is for real.”
She said the International Property Maintenance Code had been adopted in Montgomery County, but the county “has already gotten rid of it” because of its dictatorial direction.
“This is not what Summit Hill and the United States is about,” she said.
Council members pooh-poohed her assessment. “In my opinion, the International Property Maintenance Code is to protect citizens,” said Council President Michael Kokinda.

It would be great if these codes were just about public safety.  But that is simply not the case.  Sadly, these codes are often used to fine or even imprison homeowners that haven’t done anything wrong.  Sometimes “code violations” are even used as justification to legally steal property from law-abiding homeowners.  A post on the Freedom Reigns Radio blog detailed some of the things that are often done in the name of “code enforcement”…
1) The ‘Code Official’ – anybody the jurisdiction calls – a ‘Code Official’ – is the sole interpreter – no due process – Gestapo!

2) Every day an offense occurs is a separate mandatory misdemeanor – $555/day and/or a month in jail in Charleston, W.Va. They can fine you out of your home and jail you at their whim!
3) Anything the ‘Code Official’ says is not in good working condition – sticky window, dented or plugged gutter, torn window screen – whatever he says is not in good working order – hundreds of dollars of fines per day and/or jail time – usually a month – for every day the offense occurs.
4) Any unsanitary condition – whatever the ‘Code Official’ says is an ‘unsanitary condition’ – empty pop cans – puddles – dog droppings on your property – same deal – same fines and/or jail time – every day.

5) Any plant that the ‘Code Official’ says is a ‘noxious weed’ – same deal – same fines and/or jail time – every day. He can steal raw land.
6) He can fine you out of your home and jail you with no due process. Any court proceedings are window dressing as there is no remedy associated with this ‘code.’
7) It can be ‘adopted’ – just by an ‘administrative decree.’
1) Enter your house whenever he – the sole interpreter – deems reasonable.
2) Prevent you from entering your house.
3) Tear your house down with your stuff in it.
4) Bill you for the demolition.
5) Place a lien on it for fines and/or demolition charges – steal it.
6) And ‘best’ of all, no insurance I know of will cover your losses.

You’re left w/a house and your ‘stuff’ in a landfill – and any remaining unpaid mortgage, any remaining fines, any remaining taxes, and any remaining demolition charges after they steal your property
These codes restrict what homeowners can do with their own properties in thousands of different ways.  If you rebel against one of the codes, the penalties can be extremely harsh.
And there is often “selective enforcement” of these codes.  That means that they will leave most people alone but they will come down really hard on people that they do not like.  You could even end up with a SWAT team on your doorstep.
Just ask some of the people who have been through this kind of thing.
Even if you have your mortgage completely paid off, that doesn’t mean that you really “own” your property.  If you don’t pay your taxes and obey the “codes”, you could lose your property very rapidly.
The philosophy behind all of this is the same philosophy behind Agenda 21.  The elite believe that you cannot be trusted to do the “right thing” with your own property and that your activity must be “managed” for the greater good.  They believe that by controlling you and restricting your liberties that they are “saving the planet”.
Unfortunately, you can probably expect this to get a whole lot worse in the years ahead.  Our society is shifting from one that cherishes individual liberties and freedoms to one that is fully embracing collectivism.  So our politicians will likely be making even more of our decisions for us as the years move forward.
Do any of you out there have any “code violation horror stories” to share?  If so, please share them with us by posting a comment below…

Bottom line Fema will set up Agenda 21 in your area if a natural disaster happens, the will say they lost your permit, find all copies of documents related to your property does not matter if you own it or not and they will fine you…


  1. you will be fined until you loose your property, if you have lost your job they know all information about you, medical records, religion everything… They will find a loop hole to expose you and take away your land…


  2. Please stop all this nonsense, fight against global warming a wast of time and a lie to the people, fight against aids, cancer, ms, you name the organization all to separate the people from the real issues just like your political parties all part of a master plan to deceive you, whites against black, muslims against Americans another separation of agenda’s to fool us, this is a tree limb of the deceptions and plans they have to take your house, control you life, control your medical, total enslavement and Untied Nations Control. If we tried to impeach Obama right now he would declare war on America with the United Nations this is fact…Obama and all of the president after JFK have been heavily planning slavery of all nations and Government control all financed by the Rothschild, the International bankers, Globalists Oil, and Pharma corporations


  3. Focus on things like stopping chemtrails, agenda 21, pepa, sopa, fisa, get rid of all liars in office including Obama impeach all that lead to money of the Rothschild and Globalists…




Fracking Louisiana

The oil and gas industry is entrenched in southern Louisiana — and it is taking a horrific toll. In early August, a “frack-out” occurred in Louisiana’s Assumption Parish, where an underground cavern used to produce raw material for the petrochemical industry collapsed, freeing oil and gas from underground wells. Geologists can only compare the resulting disaster to the drilling technique known as fracking: vast quantities of subterranean liquid forced its way to the surface, cracking apart underground rock and causing the earth to open up under the Bayou Corne, where a delicate swamp forest was swallowed up by a giant toxic sinkhole. The sinkhole has since grown to eight acres — the size of six football fields — and prompted hundreds of people to evacuate. It has boggled geologists, who say the disaster is unprecedented: as Truthout’s Mike Ludwig quoted one expert, “Nobody in the world has ever faced a situation like this that we’re grappling with.”

Scientists are investigating whether the state-ordered removal of crude and natural gas through hydraulic fracturing of the failed storage cavern in the Napoleonville Salt Dome might be connected to recent earthquakes in the Bayou Corne sinkhole area.

Up to five earthquakes have been recordedin the Bayou Corn sinkhole disaster area since Oct. 16. The quakes have occurred at the northwest corner of the Napoleonville Salt Dome in northern Assumption Parish, according to officials and earthquake researchers Friday, who are looking into whether a frack-type process is causing increased seismic activity over the past week.

“It’s as big as we’ve had recently,” seismologist Dr. Stephen Horton said about Tuesday’s quake.

Horton is a researcher with the University of Memphis Center for Earthquake Research and Information that is contracted by USGS to research the New Madrid Fault and the Bayou Corns disaster.

(See: Sinkhole quake jolts further than Bayou Corne)

Cautioning that there is no link so far, John Boudreaux, director of the Assumption Parish Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness director John Boudreaux said Friday that the team of scientists working with the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on theBayou Corne sinkhole disaster is investigating the possible link between Texas Brine’s removing crude and natural gas from its failed cavern and the recent earthquakes.

The state Office of Conservation ordered Texas Brine to pump brine into the cavern to push out the crude, similar but not the same as fracking.

Under orders, last week, Texas Brine began extracting the natural gas and oil out of its cavern that has seeped into it from below it.

Dr. Gary Hecox explained Tuesday evening to about 100 residents who gathered for a briefing in Pierre Part that a frack-out had occurred.

At the meeting, Hecox also explained a fracking event had occurred at the dome.

The outer edge of the Napoleonville Dome, not just the breached cavern in it, has collapsed due to what he called a “frack-out,” Hecox said. He explained it was “just like fracking.”

See: Sinkhole salt dome outer edge collapsed, fracked

Earth flowed into Texas Brine’s formerly plugged and abandoned cavern, squeezing brine inside the cavern enough to raise its pressure, so a “frack out,” a blow-out of the cavern extended to the surface, Hecox explained.

A “frack-out” occurs when hydraulic pressure increases enough to crack the underground formations that then become channels to release the pressure, Hecox has explained.

The frack-out brought up brine, oil and natural gas from natural formations along Napoleonville Salt Dome’s edge, into the overlying water aquifer, and to the surface, according to Hecox.

Hecox also said that compacted earth movement into the cavern created instability that led to the sinkhole. That was before Texas Brine was ordered to “frack.”

The 1-mile by 3-mile dome houses over 50 caverns and wells. Texas Brine leases its salt dome site from Occidental Chemical Corp.

The disaster has resulted in government declared state of emergency and a mandatory evacuation that continues to be extended month after month.

The sinkhole Scientific Workgroup has eight theories regarding what has caused the disaster, according to its official update Friday:

“1. Salt Dome moving – natural migration of gas
2. Failed cement casing in OXY #3 well
3. Cavity Failure
4. Salt / Caprock falling from top of the cavern (Natural or Man-made (including penetration into sediments by cavern))
5. Gas storage cavern connections, communications by fractures
6. Low permeability seepage of gas into OXY #3 (source unknown)
7. Regional Tectonic activity (movement on growth faults)
8. A combination of above events”

Sinkhole Censorship

A citizen reporter under the name Idahopicker is gaining Internet popularity with his video presentations in which he contends officials are not being transparent about the sinkhole disaster and operations there.

“There are some specific reasons that they’re not telling you why they are watching these locations,” he says, pointing to locations of the USGS six monitors on the map.

Since uploading his latest video, Detailed: LA Sink Hole / Salt Dome [Collapsing] Explained, Idahopicker has had 1,452 views of it. This is one of at least eleven videos he has posted on YouTube since the sinkhole disaster began on Aug. 3.

The latest video documents government charts, maps and graphs, including seismic helicorder graphs. Idahopicker says the quakes are registering 3-4 on the Richter scale and highlights loss of integrity west of the sinkhole.

(Watch on this page “DETAILED: LA Sink Hole / Salt Dome Calapsing Explained” YouTube by Idahopicker.)

The Advocate reports “fears that additional subsidence events or sinkholes could occur away from the existing sinkhole between Bayou Corne and Grand Bayou and south of La. 70 South,” as this reported indicated earlier this week.

Tuesday evening, Hecox told some 100 residents in Pierre Part that weakening areas of earth around the sinkhole’s rim are moving west. He said that this conforms with the theories that the sinkhole could grow much larger and other sinkholes could form.

(See: Homeland Security worries La. sinkhole irreparably damaged, more sinkholes)

Hecox said it is more likely that the existing sinkhole would increase in size, rather than other sinkholes developing there.

Idahopicker highlights government text indicating another “Leaking water well site” near the LaBarre well in the Napoleonville Salt Dome, west of the sinkhole, where one of six USGS monitors has been strategically placed.

Water is running down into the salt there, according to government data, as Idahopicker highlights. It is near there that the helicorder La 09 has frequently shown seismic activity, including this past week when the jolts were recorded and felt by locals.

“These are the worst charts I’ve seen,” Idahopicker says, showing a Sept. 24 USGS helicorder graph.

Hecox says scientists could not know what was is actually happening in the collapsed dome zone until seismic surveying work is complete. Additional early-warning seismic devices have been ordered.

Horton, the seismologist, said the present quakes are no reason for concern and do not appear to indicate that they are leading to any major geological developments, such as the formation of another sinkhole.

“It doesn’t mean it’s leading to something big or a bigger earthquake. It may be part of a cycle, as these things progress,” he told the Advocate, referring to a cycle of quakes that had occurred from June until the sinkhole developed, but then suddenly halted.

Concerned citizens expressing outrage that national news media is not covering the sinkhole disaster better are turning to citizen reporters, such as on and on YouTube channels.

Adding to citizenry speculation about a media blackout, Idahopicker citizen reporter has documented that YouTube has deleted some of his videos. One of those deleted had 1170 views.

“It had 1170 views and then they chopped it,” Idahopicker says. “YouTube kicked it.

Documenting the YouTube message for viewers to see, he says, “There’s absolutely nothing in here that is inappropriate. It says, ‘Content is inappropriate.’”

“Now they’ve started on my channel. They’ve been doing this on other channels and now they’ve started on mine,” he says.

The deleted video was titled, “25 SEPT. Louisiana sinkhole (2) 3’ gas pipes CAVED / SALT DOME is caving in.”

“Content is inappropriate” because you are actually posting pertinent & informative details,” a commenter says.

“Yes sir, I have 2 missing in my ‘LA brine pool’ playlist too,” k9griffin9’s channel owner says in a comment.

In a related oil and gas cover up news story this week about the “White House hiding bags of dead Gulf of Mexico sea animals in garbage bags,” New Orleans-based environmental attorney Stuart Smith highlights in his popular blog how officials cover up and cannot be trusted.

“Yet again, there’s proof that BP — and perhaps more importantly, the federal government — went to great lengths to keep the American people from seeing, let alone knowing about, the worst wildlife devastation from the Deepwater Horizon spill,” Smith stated Friday.

Like citizens who distrust the government and have called for independent monitoring and investigating the sinkhole, Smith says there is ample evidence the same is needed in the BP wrecked Macondo well investigation.

“There needs to be ongoing, aggressive and independent monitoring of what’s really happening at the Deepwater Horizon site,” Smith says.

“It would need to be a body with the unsullied reputation of the National Academy of Sciences. Because God knows we can’t trust the usual suspects.”

Geologists and engineers are now facing problems they’ve never had to deal with simultaneously: a sinkhole, plus a widespread leak of both oil and natural gas. No clear roadmap for recovery exists for Bayou Corne, and evacuees still do not know when they will be able to return to their homes.

Texas Brine, the drilling and storage company connected with the incident (the company drew brine from a salt cavern underneath the bayou), hasn’t faced much blowback. In fact, Texas Brine initially blamed its cavern’s collapse on recent earthquakes – not on its own activities. However, officials say Texas Brine’s collapsed cavern is actually to blame for the earthquakes (as well as for the sinkhole)!

Despite the disaster’s historic proportions, mainstream media have barely batted an eye, aside from a few initial reports in August. Truthout’s Ludwig was one of the only journalists to visit the evacuation zone near the sinkhole and interview evacuees. He produced an in-depth feature exposing the disaster and its implications for the rest of the country.

In the coming months, we plan to follow up on the cleanup effort and the lives of the people who are waiting to go home, and to zero in on more ground-level stories in other locations. As the unconventional oil and gas drilling rapidly industrializes rural areas across the nation, the lessons of Bayou Corne will be crucial to draw upon. The full story of America’s current oil and gas rush cannot be told without the voices of the people living in areas impacted by the industry. That’s why Truthout will soon be taking a “fracking road trip” to the areas hardest hit by drilling, to learn more about how that practice is uniting and dividing families, friends and neighbors, who must make tough choices about the future of their communities when the fossil fuel companies come knocking at their doors.

between fracking and chemtrails depopulation is high in Louisiana selling our land to china, while Louisiana residents are being poisoned at alarming rates. By giant Oil Companies and Rothschild Zionists Banksters or some may say the Federal Reserve and all the Wall Street Hooligans who choose Money over God, Profits over our environment.



What are the Symptoms of Barium, Aluminum, Lead, Arsenic, Mercury, and other chemicals on America,  Exposure and why is the Federal Reserve and Wall Street Bankers spraying the United Nations, Louisiana and all Us States.

The symptoms of barium exposure typically depend on which barium compound the individual was exposed to. Barium sulfates, as stated earlier, do not dissolve well in water, so the body can quickly expel them without facing any real health concerns. But other barium compounds are not so easily forgiving. For instance, barium acetate is highly poisonous to humans and can ultimately be fatal in high doses.

The most common symptoms of mild barium exposure include:

  • Muscle Fatigue or Weakness
  • Difficulty Breathing
  • Increased or Decreased Blood Pressure
  • Numbness of the Face
  • Gastrointestinal Disorders:

Extended exposure to high levels of barium has been found to cause changes in heart rhythm, kidney problems, significant weight loss, paralysis and death. Currently, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), the EPA and the Department of Health & Human Services (DHHS) have not classified barium as a carcinogenic agent.

How Do I Test Myself for Barium Exposure?

Medical specialists can perform tests on the body’s tissues and fluids to determine the level of barium in the body. Barium levels in the body can be measured through bone, blood, feces or urine samples. However, there are no current tests available for measuring the level of barium exposure or the length of time someone has been exposed to the element.

What can mercury do to a person? 

A sudden high exposure to mercury vapor inhaled into the lung causes headaches, cough, chest pain, and difficulty breathing. It may also cause soreness of the mouth, loss of teeth, nausea, and diarrhea. It may lead to permanent lung scarring. A very high exposure to mercury can damage your kidneys.

Long-term exposure to mercury can cause effects which develop gradually. It may cause shaking of the hands, eyelids, lips, tongue, or jaw. It may cause headaches, trouble sleeping, personality change, memory loss, irritability, indecisiveness and loss of intelligence. It can also cause skin rash, sores in the mouth, or sore and swollen gums. Many of these symptoms go away when the exposure to mercury stops. Your body gets rid of mercury through urine.

Prolonged exposure to manganese may lead to manganese poisoning, a condition known as manganism. You should be concerned about this disease if you are a welder because you may have been exposed to high levels of manganese through welding rod fumes, which contain various toxic metals. (See Manganese in Welding Fumes).

Manganism looks similar to Parkinson’s disease. Patients with either disease exhibit a fixed gaze, tremors, body rigidness, and slowed movement (bradykinesia). Welders exposed to manganese are more likely to develop Parkinson’s disease than the rest of the population, especially at an early age.

Clinical Stages of Manganese Poisoning

Doctors recognize three stages of manganism or manganese poisoning (Int J Occup Environ Health. 2003 Apr–Jun; 9(2): 153–63). In the first stage, patients are exhausted, apathetic, and weak, and may get headaches. The patient’s problems may easily be confused with depression and other illnesses. Some researchers believe that this early stage is reversible. If you are a welder who has been experiencing these early symptoms, you should remove yourself from the source of manganese exposure.

The second stage involves short–term memory loss, impaired judgment, slurred speech, and sometimes even hallucinations. “Manganese madness” was the term used to describe the compulsive, strange behavior of workers in the manganese mines (J Toxicol Clin Toxicol. 1999; 37(2): 293–307).

Signs of the last stage include involuntary muscle movements; tremors; poor coordination; a mask–like, rigid face; and a staggering, strutting gait. This final stage is irreversible and may lead to complete disability. Removing a patient from manganese exposure at this point does not seem to be helpful. In one study, the disease progressed over a 10–year period even after patients were no longer exposed to manganese (Neurology. 1998 Mar; 50(3): 698–700).

The symptoms of manganism may appear anywhere from several months to several years after a patient’s initial contact with manganese (Int J Toxicol. 2003 Sep–Oct;22(5):393–401). If you have been exposed to manganese, it is important to have regular medical checkups and to let your doctor know about your work history. See Diagnosing Manganism for further details.


Air Quality Test Repost

Chemtrails – Shocking Phoenix
Air Quality Test Results
By Ted Twietmeyer
Recently, a reader sent me data on air tests performed in the Phoenix area. These charts show a number heavy metals are present in the environment at levels far exceeding the safe toxic level standards for human health. The person who performed the air sampling had it analyzed by a professional laboratory, and has asked for confidentiality. Exact location in Phoenix of the samples collected and names involved will not be disclosed in this report.
I have personally seen the actual report with the name of the person who and location where air was sampled and the name of the testing laboratory, and certify that the report appears authentic.
Scans of the report provided to me of laboratory results were sent as files of more than 1MB in size each. Each chart has been reduced in size here to fit on your screen by this author. One chart was rotated for proper orientation but has not been altered in any other way.
a. Air was sampled through an air filter which operated approximately 4 hours during the day and 4 hours after sunset for 28 days.
b. Method used by the test laboratory was defined as “ICP scan, inorganic analysis.”
c. Short columns in the charts indicate the maximum safe level for a given metal.
Tall columns are the measured amounts found in the filter for a given metal.
d. MCL = Maximum Containment Level
e. Chart values are shown in parts per billion. To convert any reading to parts per million (which is often more convenient for a mental comparison) simply drop three zeroes from any value shown on any chart.
f. I have provided the calculations on how many times each metal is over each toxic health limit. For example, in Fig. 1 barium is 278 times (or 278x) higher than the toxic health limits set by federal standards.

Fig 1 ­ In this chart we see that barium is 278x the toxic limit, copper is 98x the toxic limit, manganese is a staggering 5,820x the toxic limit and zinc is 593x the toxic limit
Noteworthy here is that manganese is an element commonly found in the environment and soil in small quantities. However, manganese is also a toxic element. This element is the black electrolyte material found in batteries (dry cell types) before the advent of alkaline batteries took over the battery market. Manganese is still used in cheap batteries and commonly provided with remote controls.
Barium, copper and zinc are also heavy metals. Copper and zinc are used by the human body’s metabolism but only in very small amounts. Barium is a common contrast agent used for X-ray diagnostic imaging, but it is not used in powder form. It is suspended in a liquid form for contrast enhancement of X-rays to outline digestive tract soft tissue.
Barium and aluminum (more on aluminum later) are commonly found in chemtrail fallout. These two compounds were also described by Dr. Teller in his weather modification paper as two possible agents that could be spread by aircraft into the upper atmosphere. His intention was to use them as reflective agents for sunlight in an effort to reduce global heating.
However, anyone who has ever been inside a tent an hour or more after the sun comes up on a cool day knows it will get hot inside quite fast. It could be that Teller’s theory is flawed, and that instead of reflecting the sunlight barium and aluminum are accelerating global warming. After several decades of chemtrail spraying weather records clearly show our planet is not cooling off. In the spring of 2008, the US army announced the problem is with the Sun and that global warming is not directly caused by civilization.


Fig 2 ­ Here we see that cadmium is 126x the toxic limit, chromium is 282x the toxic limit and nickel is 169x the toxic limit. Note that the permissible amount of Cadmium in the environment is equivalent to a tiny ten parts per billion.
These metals are commonly used for steel manufacturing and electro- plating. All are toxic in significant amounts.

Fig. 3 ­ Here aluminum is a staggering 6,400x the toxic limit, iron is 28,000x the toxic limit, magnesium is 5.3x the toxic limit, potassium is 793x the toxic limit and sodium is 15.9x the toxic limit.
According to the reader providing the data, for unknown reasons aluminum results are commonly provided by an “out of state test lab.” It’s also interesting that of all the contaminants, aluminum had the highest reading of all metals over the safe toxic limit by 6,400x. I will not comment here on my opinion as to who may run that lab or the data source, but will leave that to the reader’s imagination. As bad as aluminum being 6,400 times the toxic limit it may also be that the actual level of aluminum is far higher than what we see here.
Although physically lighter in weight than steel or other metals, aluminum is still considered a heavy metal. Like Teflon®, aluminum is very difficult to remove from the human body.
It is also well known that for unknown reasons, aluminum has been found in higher than normal concentrations in the brains of deceased Alzheimer’s patients. It is also known that Alzheimer’s disease is on the rise. Perhaps finally a connection can be made here as to the source of the illness, but more science would need to be done to confirm this. A correlation between aluminum levels in the air for various cities and Alzheimer’s statistics needs to be made. This is outside the scope of this report.
Clearly, there must be a source for these very high levels of heavy metals in the Phoenix environment. It could very well be a direct result of chemtrail spraying, since the trails have been commonly seen in the sky over Phoenix and other cities. If these levels are elevated in Phoenix’s air, it may stand to reason that the same problem is happening all over the country elsewhere. It’s quite possible that these various metals are elevated in different amounts in the air over other cities. More tests like this are needed for other cities, with air sampling and analysis performed in the exact same way to allow proper correlation.
I strongly suspect that once this report is public and those behind the chemtrail spraying see this, obtaining similar laboratory tests in the future may become more difficult. A cover-up may even take place if certain corporate or government interests are threatened by this revelation.
Anyone having similar air tests performed by a laboratory in the future should stay at the test lab for as long as it takes, and watch the test results as they are obtained from start to finish. If they will not permit this then find another reputable laboratory. Leaving the laboratory and returning for the report, or accepting an email of the test results is not wise. It may result in altered or lost test results
These lab tests could serve as a rough guide as what to expect from air tests in other cities. For example, if aluminum or barium levels are stated as near normal for lab tests of air in other large cities, those results should be suspect. I would not recommend that an entire air filter be given to any one test lab, but rather carefully collected samples that have not touched by human hands from the filter. Laboratories only need very small samples to complete an analysis. This will allow the tests to be performed by other laboratories in the event of suspect results.
If anyone is interested in air collection details such as flow rate in cubic feet per minute, air filter size or other details to duplicate this test, I will try to provide them.

Chronic barium intoxication disrupts sulphated proteoglycan
synthesis: a hypothesis for the origins of multiple sclerosis.
High level contamination by natural and industrial sources of the alkali earth metal, barium (Ba) has been identified in the ecosystems/workplaces that are associated with high incidence clustering of multiple sclerosis (MS) and other neurodegenerative diseases such as the transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSEs) and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Analyses of ecosystems supporting the most renowned MS clusters in Saskatchewan, Sardinia, Massachusetts, Colorado, Guam, NE Scotland demonstrated consistently elevated levels of Ba in soils (mean: 1428 ppm) and vegetation (mean: 74 ppm) in relation to mean levels of 345 and 19 ppm recorded in MS-free regions adjoining. The high levels of Ba stemmed from local quarrying for Ba ores and/or use of Ba in paper/foundry/welding/textile/oil and gas well related industries, as well as from the use of Barium as an atmospheric aerosol spray for enhancing/refracting the signaling of radio/radar waves along military jet flight paths, missile test ranges, etc.
“an atmospheric aerosol spray for enhancing/refracting the signaling of radio/radar waves along military jet flight paths, missile test ranges, etc. “
This National Institute of Health document just described the U.S. Navy barium chemtrail aerosol program called:
“Variable Terrain Radio Parabolic Equation”
sub program,
within the
“Radio Frequency Mission Planner”
U.S. Navy warfare system
(The chemtrail aerosol spraying program began with the top secret U.S. Navy RFMP/VTRPE aerosol program, spraying a mixture of barium into our atmosphere from aircraft. The chemtrail program is associated with
Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.)
“atmospheric aerosol spray for enhancing/refracting the signalling of radio/radar waves along military jet flight paths, missile test ranges, etc.”
(RFMP/VTRPE Barium Chemtrail aerosol was first reported in the Washington,D.C., Spotlight Newspaper / American Free Press by senior reporter Mike Blair.)
The NIH article continues:
It is proposed that chronic contamination of the biosystem with the reactive types of Ba salts can initiate the pathogenesis of MS; due to the conjugation of Ba with free sulphate, which subsequently deprives the endogenous sulphated proteoglycan molecules (heparan sulfates) of their sulphate co partner, thereby disrupting synthesis of S-proteoglycans and their crucial role in the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) signalling which induces oligodendrocyte progenitors to maintain the growth and structural integrity of the myelin sheath. Loss of S-proteoglycan activity explains other key facets of MS pathogenesis; such as the aggregation of platelets and the proliferation of superoxide generated oxidative stress. Ba intoxications disturb the sodium- potassium ion pump–another key feature of the MS profile. The co- clustering of various neurodegenerative diseases in these Ba- contaminated ecosystems suggests that the pathogenesis of all of these diseases could pivot upon a common disruption of the sulphated proteoglycan-growth factor mediated signalling systems. Individual genetics dictates which specific disease emerges at the end of the day.

The World is Now Demanding Answers and Accountability…

As an introduction to this article, we will first cover information to familiarize the uninformed readers as to the core facts and information so that a more complete understanding is possible, given this complex issue.

recent report by CBS Atlanta detailed how some local citizens are outraged that such “crimes against humanity” are being carried out right before our eyes in secret.

In the report Sen. Johnny Isakson was interviewed on the subject of chemtrails saying quote:

“That is a theory that some people have, but there is no evidence this is happening. This is not happening.”

It looks as if members of the government’s upper echelon and even members of the Senate will go to extreme lengths to suppress this vital information from reaching the American people.

Not to mention they signed off on the multi-billion dollar per year budgets in an economic crisis, with little to no transparency to the public.

In regards to aerosol spraying into the earth’s atmosphere, a recent update to data assembled by The Carnicom Institute reveals the chemicals used and their respective levels of concentration. The toxic levels that are being used in these aerosols goes beyond shocking – it would appear that these levels are indeed criminal by EPA Standards.

Chemtrails and Antimony Compounds

Exposure to antimony occurs in the workplace or from skin contact with soil at hazardous waste sites. Breathing high levels of antimony for a long time can irritate the eyes and lungs, and can cause problems with the lungs, heart, and stomach. This chemical has been found in at least 403 of 1,416 National Priorities List sites identified by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Antimony is a silvery-white metal that is found in the earth’s crust. Antimony ores are mined and then mixed with other metals to form antimony alloys or combined with oxygen to form antimony oxide.

Little antimony is currently mined in the United States. It is brought into this country from other countries for processing. However, there are companies in the United States that produce antimony as a by-product of smelting lead and other metals.

What is antimony?
Antimony is a silvery-white metal that is found in the earth’s crust. Antimony ores are mined and then mixed with other metals to form antimony alloys or combined with oxygen to form antimony oxide.

Little antimony is currently mined in the United States. It is brought into this country from other countries for processing. However, there are companies in the United States that produce antimony as a by-product of smelting lead and other metals.

Antimony isn’t used alone because it breaks easily, but when mixed into alloys, it is used in lead storage batteries, solder, sheet and pipe metal, bearings, castings, and pewter. Antimony oxide is added to textiles and plastics to prevent them from catching fire. It is also used in paints, ceramics, and fireworks, and as enamels for plastics, metal, and glass.

What happens to antimony when it enters the environment?
Antimony is released to the environment from natural sources and from industry.
In the air, antimony is attached to very small particles that may stay in the air for many days.
Most antimony ends up in soil, where it attaches strongly to particles that contain iron, manganese, or aluminum.
Antimony is found at low levels in some rivers, lakes, and streams.
How might I be exposed to antimony?
Because antimony is found naturally in the environment, the general population is exposed to low levels of it every day, primarily in food, drinking water, and air.
It may be found in air near industries that process or release it, such as smelters, coal-fired plants, and refuse incinerators.
In polluted areas containing high levels of antimony, it may be found in the air, water, and soil.
Workers in industries that process it or use antimony ore may be exposed to higher levels.
How can antimony affect my health?
Exposure to antimony at high levels can result in a variety of adverse health effects.

Breathing high levels for a long time can irritate your eyes and lungs and can cause heart and lung problems, stomach pain, diarrhea, vomiting, and stomach ulcers.

In short-term studies, animals that breathed very high levels of antimony died. Animals that breathed high levels had lung, heart, liver, and kidney damage. In long-term studies, animals that breathed very low levels of antimony had eye irritation, hair loss, lung damage, and heart problems. Problems with fertility were also noted. In animal studies, problems with fertility have been seen when rats breathed very high levels of antimony for a few months.

Ingesting large doses of antimony can cause vomiting. We don’t know what other effects may be caused by ingesting it. Long-term animal studies have reported liver damage and blood changes when animals ingested antimony. Antimony can irritate the skin if it is left on it.

Antimony can have beneficial effects when used for medical reasons. It has been used as a medicine to treat people infected with parasites.

How likely is antimony to cause cancer?
The Department of Health and Human Services, the International Agency for Research on Cancer, and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) have not classified antimony as to its human carcinogenicity.

Lung cancer has been observed in some studies of rats that breathed high levels of antimony. No human studies are available. We don’t know whether antimony will cause cancer in people.

Is there a medical test to show whether I’ve been exposed to antimony?
Tests are available to measure antimony levels in the body. Antimony can be measured in the urine, feces, and blood for several days after exposure. However, these tests cannot tell you how much antimony you have been exposed to or whether you will experience any health effects. Some tests are not usually performed in most doctors’ offices and may require special equipment to conduct them.

Has the federal government made recommendations to protect human health?
The EPA allows 0.006 parts of antimony per million parts of drinking water (0.006 ppm). The EPA requires that discharges or spills into the environment of 5,000 pounds or more of antimony be reported.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set an occupational exposure limit of 0.5 milligrams of antimony per cubic meter of air (0.5 mg/m³) for an 8-hour workday, 40-hour workweek.

The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) currently recommend the same guidelines for the workplace as OSHA.

Carcinogenicity: Ability to cause cancer.

CAS: Chemical Abstracts Service.

Ingestion: Taking food or drink into your body.

Long-term: Lasting one year or more.

Milligram (mg): One thousandth of a gram.

Parasite: An organism living in or on another organism.

ppm: Parts per million.

Short-term: Lasting 14 days or less.

Antimony isn’t used alone because it breaks easily, but when mixed into alloys, it is used in lead storage batteries, solder, sheet and pipe metal, bearings, castings, and pewter. Antimony oxide is added to textiles and plastics to prevent them from catching fire. It is also used in paints, ceramics, and fireworks, and as enamels for plastics, metal, and glass.

Everyone is exposed to low levels of antimony in the environment. Acute (short-term) exposure to antimony by inhalation in humans results in effects on the skin and eyes. Respiratory effects, such as inflammation of the lungs, chronic bronchitis, and chronic emphysema, are the primary effects noted from chronic (long-term) exposure to antimony in humans via inhalation. Human studies are inconclusive regarding antimony exposure and cancer, while animal studies have reported lung tumors in rats exposed to antimony trioxide via inhalation. EPA has not classified antimony for carcinogenicity.
Antimony is alloyed with other metals such as lead to increase its hardness and strength; its primary use is in antimonial lead, which is used in grid metal for lead acid storage batteries. (1)
Other uses of antimony alloys are for solder, sheet and pipe, bearing metals, castings, and type metal. (1)
Antimony oxides (primarily antimony trioxide) are used as fire retardants for plastics, textiles, rubber, adhesives, pigments, and paper. (1)
Sources and Potential Exposure
Antimony is found at very low levels throughout the environment. (1)
The concentration of antimony in ambient air ranges from less than 1 nanogram per cubic meter (ng/m3) (0.000001 milligram per cubic meter [mg/m3]) to about 170 ng/m3 (0.000170 mg/m3). However, near factories that convert antimony ores into metal, or make antimony oxide, concentrations may be greater than 1,000 ng/m3 (0.01 mg/m3). (1)
Soil usually contains very low concentrations of antimony (less than 1 part per million [ppm]). However, higher concentrations have been detected at hazardous waste sites and at antimony-processing sites. (1)
Food contains small amounts of antimony: the average concentration of antimony in meats, vegetables, and seafood is 0.2 to 1.1 parts per billion (ppb). (1)
People who work in industries that process antimony ore and metal, or make antimony oxide, may be exposed to antimony by breathing dust or by skin contact. (1)
Assessing Personal Exposure
Antimony can be measured in the urine, feces, and blood. (1)
Health Hazard Information
Acute Effects:
The only effects reported from acute exposure to antimony by inhalation in humans are effects on the skin and eyes. Skin effects consist of a condition known as antimony spots, which is a rash consisting of pustules around sweat and sebaceous glands, while effects on the eye include ocular conjunctivitis. Oral exposure to antimony in humans has resulted in gastrointestinal effects. (1,2)
Animal studies have reported effects on the lungs, cardiovascular system, and liver from acute exposure to high levels of antimony by inhalation. (1)
Antimony is considered to have high acute toxicity based on short-term oral tests in rats, mice, and guinea pigs. (3)
Chronic Effects (Noncancer):
The primary effects from chronic exposure to antimony in humans are respiratory effects that include antimony pneumoconiosis (inflammation of the lungs due to irritation caused by the inhalation of dust), alterations in pulmonary function, chronic bronchitis, chronic emphysema, inactive tuberculosis, pleural adhesions, and irritation. (1,2)
Other effects noted in humans chronically exposed to antimony by inhalation are cardiovascular effects (increased blood pressure, altered EKG readings and heart muscle damage) and gastrointestinal disorders. (1,2)
Animal studies have reported effects on the respiratory and cardiovascular systems and kidney from chronic inhalation exposure. Oral animal studies have reported effects on the blood, liver, central nervous system (CNS), and gastrointestinal effects. (1)
A National Toxicology Program (NTP) 14-day drinking water study of potassium antimony tartrate reported an increase in relative liver and kidney weights in the high dose group (females only). A 13-week intraperitoneal injection study, also by the NTP, reported inflammation and/or fibrosis of the liver in mice dosed with potassium antimony tartrate. (6)
EPA has not established a Reference Concentration (RfC) for antimony. However, EPA has established an RfC of 0.0002 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/m3) for antimony trioxide based on respiratory effects in rats. The RfC is an estimate (with uncertainty spanning perhaps an order of magnitude) of a continuous inhalation exposure to the human population (including sensitive subgroups) that is likely to be without appreciable risk of deleterious noncancer effects during a lifetime. It is not a direct estimator of risk but rather a reference point to gauge the potential effects. At exposures increasingly greater than the RfC, the potential for adverse health effects increases. Lifetime exposure above the RfC does not imply that an adverse health effect would necessarily occur. (4)
EPA has medium confidence in the study on which the RfC was based because it uses an adequate number of animals but it is not a chronic, lifetime study; medium confidence in the database because no adequate developmental or reproductive studies are available; and, consequently, low confidence in the RfC. (4)
The Reference Dose (RfD) for antimony is 0.0004 milligrams per kilogram body weight per day (mg/kg/d) based on longevity, blood glucose, and cholesterol in rats. (5)
EPA has low confidence in the study on which the RfD was based because only one species was used, only one dose level was used, no no-observed-adverse-effect level (NOAEL) was determined, and gross pathology and histopathology were not well described; low confidence in the database due to lack of adequate oral exposure investigations; and, consequently, low confidence in the RfD. (5)
Reproductive/Developmental Effects:
An increased incidence of spontaneous abortions, as compared with a control group, was reported in women working at an antimony plant. Disturbances in the menstrual cycle were reported in women exposed to various antimony compounds in a metallurgical plant. However, the study that reported these findings was unclear about concurrent exposure to other chemicals, nor did it provide the characteristics of the controls used. (1,2)
Animal studies have reported a decrease in the number of offspring born to rats exposed to antimony prior to conception and throughout gestation. Reproductive effects, including metaplasia in the uterus and disturbances in the ovum-maturing process, were reported in a rat study, following inhalation exposure. (1)
Cancer Risk:
In one human study, inhalation exposure to antimony did not affect the incidence of cancer in workers employed for 9 to 31 years. (1)
Lung tumors have been observed in rats exposed to antimony trioxide by inhalation. (1,2,4)
EPA has not classified antimony for carcinogenicity.
Physical Properties
Antimony is a silvery-white metal that is found in the earth’s crust. Antimony ores are mined and then either changed to antimony metal or combined with oxygen to form antimony oxide. (1)
Antimony trioxide is a white powder that is very slightly soluble in water. (1)
Antimony metal is a very brittle, moderately hard metal. (1)
The chemical symbol for antimony is Sb, and it has an atomic weight of 121.75 g/mol. (1)
The chemical formula for antimony trioxide is O3Sb2, and its molecular weight is 291.50 g/mol. (1)

9/28/08  St. Pete for Peace statement on Obama following the first Presidential debate

Dear friends of peace,

The presidential debate on Friday night confirmed our previous statements about Barack Obama – he is not an antiwar candidate.  St. Pete for Peace, in the strongest terms, condemns Obama’s positions on Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iran, Russia, Venezuela, and Iraq, among others.  Like John McCain, Obama is pro-military and pro-empire.  And just like the Republican Party, the Democrats are not representing the people, as further evidenced by the Democrats who pushed at least as hard as the Republicans for the $700 billion Wall Street bailout.

Some people believe Obama is just making pro-war statements to get elected, but if that were true, how do you know he’s not also being deceitful about the things he says in which you agree?  And if he’s saying things now just to get elected, how do you know he wouldn’t say those things to get re-elected?  Some say that an Obama presidency would mean that their antiwar voice has a chance of being heard.  How can this be true if he’s not listening to your voice now when he’s trying to get your vote?

“But he’s better than McCain” is the reason many give for their support of Obama.  Yes, that’s true.  But, if somebody knocked on your door and said, “You can either give me your children, or you can give me every dollar you earn for the rest of your life” what would you say?  You would say “neither” and shut the door.  It’s time to shut the door on the Republicans and Democrats until they start representing the people.  Of course, John McCain and the Republicans are dangerous and should not be in power, but acceptance of the “lesser of two evils” philosophy is one reason we continue to be stuck with two evils.

So, what do we do?  Well, if you support the Democrats and Obama, then at least demand they start representing you, or abandon the party.  This is not a call to join some other party – election politics should be just one small part of participating in your country’s affairs.  This is a call to consciousness.  What you do once every four years pales in comparison to what you do every day.

  • Voted for Robert Gates (of the Iran-Contra scandal) to be Defense Secretary. (Dec ’06)
  • “[L]aunching some missile strikes into Iran is not the optimal position for us to be in given the ongoing war in Iraq.

    News after Obama was elected to a second term

Evergreen Air



Evergreen Air is a CIA front company for chemtrail operations within the US, based out of Marana Air Park near Tucson Arizona and McMinville Oregon, near Portland.

A major missing piece of a grand conspiracy has been targeted by a drunk pilot. In a small town 30 miles east of the Pacific Ocean in Oregon is the center of a major global operation. At a bar in McMinnville, Oregon, an inebriated pilot attempted to impress one of the pretty ladies with tales of his secret mission.

The pilot’s pathetic attempt to portray himself as a Sean Connery or Daniel Craig caused him to (ante up) his importance and spill the secrets of the CIA’s asset Evergreen International Aviation.

The slurred revelations confirmed suspicions that Evergreen (International Aviation) is part of the major crap dump on the planet. Chemtrails made up aluminum, barium and other ingredients contribute to respiratory ills and change the acidity of the soil.

Evergreen works from over a 100 bases and employees 4,500 people. Delford Smith privately owns the company. They admittedly “perform” for the CIA.

Evergreen was given a no contest bid that gave them all the facilities in Marana, Arizona that previously belonged to CIA’s Air America (Pinal Air Park, Arizona).

The security at the Pinal site is said to be as severe as that of Area 51. It is run as a military base where one lost pilot got an armed escort immediately off the operational base. The 10 year pilot said it was nothing like anything he has ever seen.

Evergreen International Aviation brags of their planes that have 7 times the capacity of other fire fighters. One can carry 20,000 galleons. Firefighting … Right … and next we will be told the chem trails are to prevent global warming as millions more are advancing to an early death.

Evergreen International Aviation has exemptions from the law that are advertised on their web site. They can fly anywhere and not stay on a designated route. Has CFR members paved the way? People like Philip Lader and John Wheeler III … they were in a position to do just that.

Evergreen’s public relations (propaganda) spokesman is handled by WPP run by Council on Foreign Relations member Philip Lader. He worked under the present head of the CIA … Leon Panetta as White House deputy of staff under Bill Clinton.

Philip Lader is an “inside” authority on international affairs and business. He is the non-executive Chairman of WPP Group, Senior Adviser to Morgan Stanley International, and a board member for think-tank RAND Corporation. He is also a trustee of UC Rusal (largest aluminum company in the world) the British Museum and St. Paul’s Cathedral Foundation. Ambassador Lader has addressed trans-Atlantic audiences from the U.N.’s General Assembly Hall to state chambers of commerce and local world affairs councils, is a member of Rockefeller’s Council on Foreign Relations.

Philip Lader (CFR) is a key player driving toward world government. In addition to running the Public Relations for Evergreen International Aviation … Lader is a director of UC Rusal, the largest Aluminum producer in the world located in Moscow, Sweden, Italy, and Australia. Nathaniel Rothschild is a big investor.

Eugenic operation of Chemtrails has had the assistance of Mitre a non-profit Corporation that manages the Federal Aviation Administration, Homeland Security, and IRS. (1) The IRS is part of the Federal Reserve which is a major transmission belt driving the conspiracy.

Philip Lader’s fellow Council on Foreign Relations member John P Wheeler III was recently dumped into a land fill in Wilmington, Delaware. Wheeler III was a consultant to Mitre the non profit corporation with jurisdictional advice over the Federal Aviation Administration’s flight patterns.

Was John P. Wheeler III to sentimental for the killing underway? And got murdered by the Company?

The CIA is the enforcement arm of the Council on Foreign Relations

Mitre is conveniently located in McLean,Virginia home of the CIA.

Thanks to the drunken pilot and his loose lips … the Free People of the world can focus on the criminals who are poisoning our air and our water.
