Biden Apologizes For ‘Shylock’ Gaffe, Immediately Drops Another Two – 18 September 2014

RT logoVice President Joe Biden apologized Wednesday for use of the offensive slur ‘Shylock’ to describe home-loan lenders. Yet hours later, Biden dropped two more gaffes during a visit to Iowa, an important state for anyone considering a 2016 presidential run.

On Tuesday, Biden, in a speech before the Legal Services Corporation, called ‘Shylocks’ those who had offered bad home loans to US service members deployed overseas.

The Anti-Defamation League national director Abraham Foxman criticized Biden for the “medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day.”

Biden apologized in a statement, saying, “He’s correct, it was a poor choice of words, particularly as he said coming from ‘someone as friendly to the Jewish community and open and tolerant an individual as is Vice President Joe Biden.’ He’s right.”

Dana Mrkich – Do You Need A ‘Fear’ Energy Shower? – 18 September 2014

Dana Colour Pic NewWe are currently hearing about so many acts and intentions of extreme violence. This is on top of the mountain of abuse being uncovered that has been perpetuated for decades by those whose job it was to protect innocents. These issues are all separate, yet connected by a common thread which at the end of the day is a violation of everyone’s right to live freely, in peace, not doing harm to others, with sovereignty over their own body and life.

Laura Bruno – “This Artificial Reality Must End” – Joseph Chiappalone w/ Jeff Rense 03.15.2013 – 18 September 2014

laura-of-the-rocksA fascinating discussion between Joseph Chiappalone and Jeff Rense — layers upon layers of information in here. Thanks to “bumpercrop,” who embedded this video as a comment on Exopermaculture.

Warning: not everyone will resonate with or like this post, and that’s fine. If it’s not for you, then just don’t watch it. I’m posting it for those who’ve recently commented on how “surreal” the world seems anymore, for those who had been throwing themselves into helping people shift and who have recently received the very strong message to back off, pull inside themselves and move forward in their own lives in peace. “It is done.” This talk expresses much of what I’ve observed happening in my own life, with clients, and by keeping a finger on the pulse of the world through conversations with very awake people I know all over the place.

In addition to the most awake people I know consistently sharing about their sudden, startling detachment from the world, many of these same people have also expressed or experienced what seem like severe lapses in memory, plus vertigo and/or bizarre visual changes. I’ve experienced some of this myself, but I find it interesting that I’m hearing similar things from so many people right now — and that all of those people just happen to be the more tapped in, tuned in and aware people I’ve encountered over the years. I consider it a pulling away from the artificial reality, because these people — including me — are perfectly fine when engaged in the new realities we’re creating.

It’s just anything old paradigm that seems fuzzy, irrelevant, won’t lodge into long term memory, or mysteriously finds itself roadblocked out of interface. Calendar conflicts and mix-ups, missing emails, people who swear various conversations never occurred — all of this and more has become quite common among people leaving this old, self-destructing reality behind. Pick an end game crisis, any end game crisis, and you’ll see what I mean. Fukushima; Gulf Oil Spill; WW3 with its “mutually assured destruction”; worldwide, weaponized Ebola pandemic; the “ISIS crisis”; Hercolubos/Planet X; worldwide volcanic upticks; worldwide earthquake upticks; runaway GMOs; California drought set to trigger world-wide famine: you name it, we’ve got it. And more. I see this sometimes with clients — where everything falls apart at once. It’s a recipe for certain death or a massive, life-altering and rejuvenating quantum leap. Simply put, we are in evolve or die time. And for all intents and purposes, most of the key decisions have already been made.

Anyway, here’s the talk, and again, if what he’s saying doesn’t compute, then this video’s probably not for you. I’m posting it for those people for whom nothing computes anymore, because this message probably will. 😉

Intelligence Director Clapper Insists He Didn’t Lie To Congress — But ‘Misspoke’ About NSA Spying – 18 September 2014

RT logoThe United States’ top intelligence official said Thursday that he’s disappointed to continuously have his integrity disputed over an unsound remark he made before Congress more than a year ago concerning the National Security Agency’s spy tactics.

Eighteen months after he told lawmakers that the NSA does “not wittingly” collect and store data pertaining to US citizens, Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said during an event Thursday morning in Washington, DC that he still takes heat for his infamous answer.

The gaffe in question occurred when Sen. Ron Wyden (D-Oregon) asked DNI Clapper during an intelligence hearing in March 2013 if American citizens are immune to surveillance programs undertaken by the NSA. Although Clapper responded “not wittingly,” classified documents leaked to the media by former contractor Edward Snowden later that year proved that Americans’ communications are indeed collected by the NSA.

The Independent announced this morning that ‘More than 100 Muslim leaders today make an unprecedented joint appeal to the kidnappers of Alan Henning to release the aid worker unharmed or commit the “worst condemnable sin” against Islam.…the statement….pleads with those holding the British hostage to accept that he was on a mission to Syria to help innocent civilians”.
