Laura Bruno – Feeling Through The Limits Of Fear, Frustration And Resistance – Approaching The Scorpio Full Moon – 13 May 2014

laura-of-the-rockslaurabruno:

I was just mentioning to two friends how insanely intense the energies feel right now. Clients have been going through major drama, and I kept thinking I myself was largely immune, until I realized that I’ve been experiencing these same things — with our yard! When Laura Bruno starts fantasizing about things like RoundUp, rodent poison and bug spray, you know something’s up. Apparently, it’s the Scorpio Full Moon that’s up. “Overwhelm, pressure, frustration, stagnation and exhaustion.” Yep. That sums up my weeding, squirrel chasing and mosquito swatting adventures the past few days. By contrast, sessions flow so easily, for which I remain grateful. If it stops storming, I’ll plant some holly today, and then … a few days of well earned vacation to visit family. Cheers and smiles amidst the intensity. I always find it much easier to shake things off or move through them when I realize, “Hey, it’s not ALL me. We are stardust, and the stars, planets and other gravitational bodies do indeed have influence. Roll with it.”

Holy crap I’ve had to work through some serious resistance to get this post done. I’m guessing I’m not entirely alone in feelings of overwhelm, pressure, frustration, stagnation and exhaustion… all of which seem right in line with the energies building toward Wednesday’s Full Moon (12:16 pm PDT).

The Taurus Solar Eclipse on April 28 planted a seed for a potent new beginning, and now the Scorpio Full Moon lights up the basement of the subconscious, revealing inner blocks to creativity and growth. Where have you lost your power, passion and vitality?  Where are you playing it safe and not playing your edge? What do you need to let go of so you can create what you really want?

Taurus-Scorpio themes amplified at this Full Moon include power, money and resources, intimacy and sexuality (just a few light areas…). Amping up the pressure…

Laura Bruno – Heads’ Up! Department: Rosa Koire’s Orwellian vision Of Agenda 21 – 13 May 2014

laura-of-the-rockslaurabruno:

I love Ann’s excellent introduction to this video interview of Rosa Koire. I was actually the person who sent Ann her copy of Behind the Green Mask, and I lived in the same Northern CA town (Santa Rosa) where Rosa experienced first hand the Orwellian underbelly of the innocuous sounding “Sustainable Development.” I appreciate Ann seeking the balance between the polarized extremes Rosa notes. May we continue to find truly local, truly natural and truly sustainable solutions. The video covers the Bundy Ranch situation and details the implementation of mega-states and mega-cities to replace local, state and national sovereignty. Very eye-opening for those not aware of the complexities involved in sustainable development and the mega-corporations funding the NGO’s taking over policy and regulations.

Rosa Koire’s work both stimulates and troubles me. I have a hard time looking at what appear to be her polarized options: either “individual liberty” or a global “turnkey tyranny.” At least that’s how it appears on the surface. That word “liberty,” frankly, makes me want to vomit, since it’s constantly used to justify self-serving attitudes of one kind or another. I do think she’s correct, however, that Agenda 21 can be used as a poison pill, hiding corporatist intent to lock in the worst kind of technological total control of everything and everyone behind the phrase “sustainable development.” In other words, once again, it’s how we use language that counts; and it’s up to us to be sensitive to the usually unconscious associations that various words in common use magnetize to themselves. For, once again, just like “liberty,” the phrase “sustainable development” can morph into a jingoistic rant, meant to automatically trigger lock-step obedience…

James Corbett – The Corbett Report – China’s “War On Terror” – 13 May 2-01

by James Corbett

May 8, 2014

On October 28, 2013, an SUV carrying three passengers crashed into a crowd of people waiting outside the gate of the forbidden city across from the infamous Tiananmen Square in the heart of Beijing. All three inside the car were killed in the subsequent fire, along with two bystanders in the crowd. Thirty-eight others were injured. Although not the most spectacular terror attack in the world in recent years, the scene of flames and carnage under the watchful gaze of Chairman Mao in the shadow of the heavily-guarded Tiananmen Square was as unmistakable to the Chinese population as the smoking ruins of the Pentagon was to the American population. This was, or was intended to be taken as, an attack on the Chinese “homeland.” Continue reading

Mish/ Mike Shedlock – Ukraine In “Undeclared War” With Russia Says Defense Minister; Mish Says “Russia Won’t Invade” – 13 May 2014

MishMikeShedlockThe civil war in Ukraine took a bloody turn for the worse today as separatists killed six Ukrainian soldiers and wounded eight others in an ambush near Kramatorsk in the Donetsk region.

In response to the ambush, the Ukrainian defense minister proclaimed Ukraine in “Undeclared War” With Russia.

“In our eastern regions we have an undeclared war,” acting Defense Minister Mykhaylo Koval told reporters in Kiev today. “Our neighboring country unleashed the war, sending special forces and saboteurs into our territory.”

If Donetsk and Luhansk secede, Ukraine would lose about a fifth of its economic output, Bank of America analyst Vadim Khramov wrote in an e-mailed report today. As for Russia, the tension may cost it $115 billion, or about 3 percent of annual output, and exacerbate recessionary pressure, said Nariman Behravesh, chief economist at consultancy IHS Inc. (IHS), said in an e-mail today.

“While Russia could end up paying a very heavy economic price for its annexation of Crimea and its ongoing conflict with Ukraine, the negative impacts on other parts of the world, notably Europe, will also be hard to avoid,” Behravesh said.

A majority of Ukrainians, or 56 percent, believe their country is at war with Russia, according to a poll by the Kiev-based Razumkov Center published today.

About 53 percent want to join the EU — ousted President Viktor Yanukovych’s refusal to sign an EU association agreement triggered the crisis — whereas two thirds see Russia as “brotherly” and “friendly” according to the April 25-29 poll of 2,012 people. It had a margin of error of three percentage points.

Rather Curious Poll

56% say Ukraine is at war with Russia but 67% say Russia is brotherly and friendly. That does not make a lot of sense. I would like to see the poll questions.

Official Denial

The defense minister’s statement regarding an undeclared war with Russia sounds curiously like an official denial of Civil War. Ukraine does not want to admit the truth.

Renewed Diplomatic Push in Ukraine

The Financial Times reports Renewed Diplomatic Push in Ukraine Crisis

A new diplomatic push to resolve the crisis in Ukraine is under way even after two of its regions declared independence and sought to join Russia, with European mediators pushing for “round table” reconciliation talks.

German foreign minister Frank-Walter Steinmeier, spearheading the diplomatic initiative, flew into Ukraine on Tuesday on a visit aimed at narrowing the gap between the interim government and pro-Russia separatists in the east.

Berlin has played a central role in promoting a mediating role for the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe, and its current chairman, Swiss president Didier Burkhalter – and securing backing from Moscow for the idea.

The OSCE road map includes a ceasefire by all sides, disarming illegally armed groups, a “national dialogue” on constitutional reforms, and holding free and fair presidential elections across the country on May 25 as planned.

Another Failure Likely … Unless

The new OSCE road map is identical to the old OSCE road map. Thus, these new talks are likely to fail unless the separatists are at the table. Unfortunately, Kiev does want separatist leaders at the table, just as before.

Holding Russia responsible for a group it has no direct control over seems ludicrous, yet that is about to happen, again. And if the talks fail, more counterproductive sanctions will be on the way.

Why Russia Won’t Invade

Long-term, I am optimistic. Somewhere along the line, I expect all parties will sit at the table and talk. A neutral Ukraine, with more autonomy for Eastern and Southern Ukraine is the most likely result.

Russia will retain Crimea.

Behravesh commented “Russia could end up paying a very heavy economic price for its annexation of Crimea …” I rather doubt it.

Winning Crimea was a long-term strategic victory, and repercussions will blow away within a year.

If Russia attempts a takeover of other regions, which I still doubt, then there could be a heavy price.

And although the recent vote for independence suggests otherwise, other polls have shown majority of the citizens in Donetsk prefer an association of some sort with Kiev.

Unlike Crimea, there is little reward for Russian annexation of other areas. Feuds and sanctions would simmer for years.

Why would Russia want that? I suggest Russia doesn’t, and that is why it hasn’t (and won’t) invade Eastern or Southern Ukraine.

Ultimately, diplomacy will succeed. In the meantime, civil war, not a war with Russia, lingers on.

Two Hospital Workers Showing Signs Of Deadly MERS Virus In Florida – 13 May 2014

RT logoMore cases of the deadly Middle East Respiratory Virus, or MERS, may be surfacing in the state of Florida, with two health workers now reportedly showing symptoms as of early Tuesday.

Reuters reported on Tuesday that two staffers at an Orlando, Florida hospital who were exposed to a MERS patient earlier this week have started showing symptoms, and that one of the two workers has been hospitalized as a result.

According to Reuters, officials at the Dr. P. Phillips Hospital now say that the workers were exposed to the disease when they were recently in the proximity of a patient who had contracted MERS but had not yet been diagnosed. As RT reported earlier this week, that patient was hospitalized in isolation in the Sunshine State after flying from Saudi Arabia to London, then to Boston, Atlanta and Orlando.

State Department Buying Massive Cache Of Explosives, Journalists Claim – 13 May 2014

RT logoThe Department of State is shopping around for hundreds of pounds of plastic explosives and detonator devices, a new report reveals, raising concerns regarding an American agency that usually deals with foreign policy, not dynamite procurement.

Even after several solicitations for explosives were posted publically on the website where federal offices can ask for quotes from contractors, however, representatives at the United States State Dept. have reportedly laughed at questions from reporters wanting to know why the requests have been made.

Earlier this week, Steve Peacock at WND became the first to write about procurement documents on FBO.gov in which the State Dept. filed no fewer than four separate orders for high-powered explosives, detonating chords, blasting caps and fuse igniters.

At least four miners has been reported killed and some 200-300 trapped after an explosion caused a fire in a coal mine in the western Turkish province of Manisa, a local member of parliament said, citing health officials.

A local MP told the Turkish branch of CNN that four people had been killed in the disaster, retracting his earlier statement that 20 bodies had been recovered from the scene of the accident.

Muzaffer Yurttas, a member of the ruling Justice and Development Party (AKP), had told the local broadcaster NTV that apart form the bodies recovered following the blast, many others had been rushed to hospital.
