I have written extensively about the bias of the media and, particularly, the use of false equivalencies. (For a discussion of this see my esssay: False Equivalencies and the Mediocrity of Nonlocal Consciousness Research Criticism: http://www.explorejournal.com/article/S1550-8307%2813%2900059-1/fulltext)! . Here is proof of my argument. Click through to see the charts which accompany this piece. They will appall you when you see how incredibly compromised American corporate media has become.

Here is another potential game changer in the transition to non-carbon energy. More and more breakthroughs are popping up. One can only wonder what it would have been like if we had put the trillions we have spent on war into eliminating carbon energy, and transitioning to energy technologies that were non-polluting.

I love stories like this. Citizens are beginning to do what our corporate controlled government will not. As this report explains a citizen movement has arisen that Aikidos the issue: Instead of listing GMO, they list No-GMO present. It requires no law to list what you don’t have in your food. It’s a brilliant idea. It now depends on whether customers make a choice on that basis. If enough of us do, it ! will accomplish the same effect as the law that we have been unable to get through the corrupted Congress.

This is perhaps the saddest story of all concerning the bees. As is so often the case today, I take it to be a an example of a state of consciousness that is killing us, as surely as it is killing the bees. Bee keepers steal all the honey from the bees that they lay up to keep themselves healthy, and feed them high fructose corn syrup. It is now emerging that this is one of! the reasons the bees are dying.

The Great Schism Trend is reaching a kind of crescendo, whose outcome is unclear to me. This could pass, or it could continue to develop to crisis. I am using this South Carolina story, but I could have picked Alabama, or Kansas. All at the same time. This is an assertion of states rights over federal laws, and it must go to the Supreme Court, as will several of the others cases! .

World Terror After Armageddon Virus Unleashed
A grim report prepared for President Putin by Health Minister Dr. Veronika Skvortsova on the growing pandemic in China is now warning that a “global mass death event” is currently underway as the spread of the H7N9 avian flu virus continues to grow and shows no signs of stopping anytime soon.
Important to note, and as we had reported on in our 19 March report “China Genetic Test Causes Mass Death Catastrophe,” Health Minister Skvortsova warned of this coming mass death event from China by noting the genetic experiments being conducted by Chinese scientists last month that led to an animal apocalypse of staggering proportions.

This is coming, it reminds me of when mobile phones began. A few early adapters had phones in their cars, and carried around 10 lb over the shoulder cases for walking around. I had one in Miami, where my ship Seaview was homeported when in American waters, a project to locate sunken ships on the Grand Bahama Banks using Remote Viewing. People thought I was a drug dealer, since they were notable early adapters.
Insecticide Firms in Secret bid to Stop Ban That Could Save Bees
DAMIAN CARRINGTON – The Guardian/Observer (U.K.)
The corporations that persist in making these toxic chemicals, like the tobacco industry are evil. They know that what they are doing is destructive and they don’t care because it is so profitable. Their strategy is not to improve their products, but to corrupt the government, as they have done so effectively in the U.S. This is what they are up to in Europe.
Weeding Corporate Power Out of Agricultural Policies: Communities Mobilize for Food and Farm Justice
TORY FIELD and BEVERLY BELL – Truthout.org
Here is some good news about agriculture. Most socially progressive movements, such as this one, are very idealistic, and people work very hard to advance them, but to little effect. This one I think actually has a chance of being successful. Support it wherever you can. This report presents information about what you can do, and where to start.
Finally, we may have some good news about the bees. It’s not a done deal yet, but it looks possible. It appears that whereas the American Congress, captured as it is by corporate forces, cares nothing for facts concerning the crisis of the bees, the EU has begun to recognize officially what is happening with these small creatures upon whom our wellbeing depends. And they are seem to be willing to do something about it — ban the insecticides that a growing body ! of research say are at least a major cause of the problem.

Analysis Finds Monsanto’s GM Corn Nutritionally Dead, Highly Toxic
Is GMO corn nutritionally equivalent to non-GMO corn? Monsanto will tell you the answer is a big ‘yes’, but the real answer is absolutely not. And the simple reality is that they are continuing to get away with their blatant misinformation. In fact, a 2012 nutritional analysis of genetically modified corn found that not only is GM corn lacking in vitamins and nutrients when compared to non-GM corn, but the genetic creation also poses numerous health risks due to extreme toxicity.
With the recent passing of the Monsanto Protection Act, there is no question that mega corporations like Monsanto are able to wield enough power to even surpass that of the United States government. The new legislation provides Monsanto with a legal safeguard against federal courts striking down any pending review of dangerous GM crops. It is ironic to see the passing of such a bill in the face of continuous releases of GMO dangers.

Obama has been a disappointment in many ways. The big three, in my view, are the failure to address climate change in a meaningful way; the failure to hold the corrupt financial sector accountable; and the failure to develop a foreign policy that was not just an extension of the Bush-Cheney policies.
