This is absolutely incredible.  The Obama administration has ordered the NSA to stop spying on the institutions that are set on destroying us, while at the same time we learn that the NSA taps the fiber at Google and Yahoo to spy on average citizens en masse.

US President Barack Obama has called on the National Security Agency to halt spying on the headquarters of the International Monetary Fund and World Bank in conjunction with a review of surveillance activities, Reuters reported.

A US official told the news agency that President Obama curbed the spying within the last few weeks, around the same time he told the NSA to stop eavesdropping on the United Nations headquarters.

Among the institutions that the Obama administration has ordered the NSA to cease spying on are:

  • The World Bank.
  • The IMF.
  • The United Nations.

So now, when these institutions are deciding on how to replace the Dollar as the world’s reserve currency, our government will have no clue.

But not to worry, they’re still collecting data on:

  • You.
  • Your Family.
  • Everyone Else.
  • Santa Claus (if he exists)

More and more every day, people are waking up to the reality of what has happened in this country.  People are writing more and more on blogs and other Sites We Like.  Check it out!

In the words of the world famous fictitious character, Inigo Montoya:

You keep on using that word.  I do not think it means what you think it means.

Today’s lesson is on Government.

Govern:  

Relevant definitions:

  • To exercise continuous sovereign authority over;especially :  to control and direct the making and administration of policy
  • To control the speed of (as a machine) especially by automatic means.  Think of this like the governor on your car that tops out at 130.
  • To control, direct, or strongly influence the actions and conduct of.
  • To hold in check.
  • To exercise authority.

Ment:

From Latin ment-, stem of mēns (“mind”).

So yes.  Another example where words have very different meanings than what we expect.  Government’s purpose is to exercise continuous sovereign authority over the mind.  To control and throttle the speed of humanity’s mental progress.  To influence and direct such progress and to hold it in check with authority (force).

Some of the Local Voluntary were present at the picnic at Hance Park.  Without going into too much detail, it was a great night.  We broke bread.  We broke pizza. We shared, and we gained.

There is a catalyst that is at work right now in the awareness and activism circles.  It’s hard to pin down, but a lot of the leaders are keen to it.  There is something tremendous on the horizon coming.

But only if we make it.  Only if we make friendships and look past our differences.  We as a nation and as a people must no longer be fragmented through division, but united in the cause for human rights, basic freedoms, and freedom from oppression of all kinds.  The oppressors want us to fight each other while they drop bombs from drones on whoever they feel like.  But we are getting wise, and their days are numbered.

We are constantly being given messages of division – reasons to make the differences we have as people so abominable that we could never be friends, and should instead be enemies.  Republicans and Democrats, Blue Team Red Team, Steelers or Browns.  It all plays to some of our most simple and primal instincts.

AND I BEG TO DIFFER!
