Vanuatu volcano: Full evacuation of Ambae island ordered as Monaro threat increases

Fears of an imminent volcanic eruption have prompted the Vanuatu Government to order the full-scale evacuation of Ambae island.

Around 8,000 people have already left their homes and headed to evacuation centres in coastal areas.

Vanuatu’s Prime Minister Charlot Salwai announced the compulsory evacuation of the entire island, with the aim to have it completed by Friday next week.

The New Zealand Defence Force (NZDF) sent an aircraft over the island earlier this week and said the volcano was the “most active they’ve seen in some time”.

The volcano has been active since 2005, but the recent increase in activity raised fears a much bigger eruption.

About 10,000 people live on Ambae island.

Woman or machine? You won’t know what to believe with this terrifyingly lifelike android

As technology continues to develop, the line between man and machine has become increasingly blurred.

And this stunningly lifelike android woman will have you believing the line has disappeared altogether.

Footage of the robot at this year’s Tokyo Game Show in the Japanese capital has been viewed more than three million times on one social media platform alone.

A number of Japanese-made and international games are on display at the convention, which has been held annually for the last 21 years.

But the beautiful female android has stood out – despite the fact she is only a PR prop.

She, along with several others of her kind, are stood at the booth of “Detroit: Become Human” – a new PlayStation 4 video game developed by Quantic Dream, from France, and published by Japan’s very own Sony Interactive Entertainment.

Visitors could be forgiven for thinking the android was a real-life human, as the video shows stunning build detail on her face and in the movements of her limbs.

In the short clip, the android smiles and waves, leaving expo-goers and social media users stunned.

According to the game’s storyline, the humanoid robot is one of the state-of-the-art AP700 models – also called “the most reliable android”.

The plot of “Detroit: Become Human”, set for release in 2018, revolves around android Kara, an android who escapes the factory where she was made.

Social media users have admitted to “falling in love” with the pretty android at the Tokyo Game Show.

How Nestle Makes Billions Selling You Groundwater in A Bottle

 From Pam Vernon at Envirowatch Rangitikei

NZ Water Rights

 

A new investigation from Bloomberg Businessweek reveals how large water bottling companies choose their plant locations based not on the steady supply of pristine, natural drinking water, as their labels and other marketing campaigns would lead you to believe, but based on which economically depressed municipalities offer up the most tax breaks and have the most lax water laws. 

As an example, even in the drought stricken state of California, Bloomberg notes that Nestle was able to strike a sweetheart 20-year supply agreement with the U.S. Forest Service to pay roughly $0.000001 for the water in each bottle that consumers blindly drop a couple bucks to purchase.

Comment: Peters wants utu (Revenge) over Joyce’s attacks

Winston Peters Utu

Patrick Gower – Newshub – Tuesday, 26 September 2017

Winston Peters could be out for revenge against National over their attempts to take him down during the campaign.
A New Zealand First source has told Newshub Peters is particularly resentful towards Steven Joyce, whom he personally detests.
Peters believes Joyce orchestrated a four-pronged attack against him by National:
Steal NZ First policies

The first prong was to steal policies and ideas from Peters, or suggest ones which would appeal to his voters.
Those were things like bootcamps for young serious offenders, getting tough on gangs, sanctions against beneficiaries who fail certain criteria such as drug tests, and the 110km/h speed limit.
Squash his party vote

The second prong was to squash his party vote. The idea was to boost National’s popularity, while forcing Peters’ head below the 5 percent threshold.
They did boost their own votes, but failed to force him under 5 percent.
Drive him out of Northland

With the third prong, drive him out of Northland, they ran a successful, gloves-off campaign with Matt King. He beat Peters to become the local MP.
The aim of this was to take away Peters’ security net to get into Parliament. It actually worked but because he had that party vote, he was safe.
Drop a scandal on him

And last but not least: Peters believes National dropped a scandal on him.
His pension over-payment was leaked to the media. It hit him hard but didn’t knock him down.
Now he wants utu – revenge.

The Newshub tip-off
The tip was given to Newshub on the Friday six weeks out from the election just as National was undertaking its co-ordinated attack on Winston Peters.
It was an anonymous phone call, from a blocked number, from a man who knew lots of details.
It could have been a public servant.
But investigations by the Ministry of Social Development, Inland Revenue and Ministerial Services, which manages staff in the Beehive, have all failed to find the leaker.
That leaves a senior crew as suspects – two ministers, Anne Tolley and Paula Bennett, as well as the Prime Minister’s chief-of-staff Wayne Eagleson.
Winston Peters’ second National victim
Paula Bennett has been upfront about the fact she won’t be Deputy Prime Minister any more.
She follows David Carter, who has to give up being Speaker because Peters hates him and won’t countenance it.
Will Peters claim another scalp?
There is talk that Winston Peters wants another scalp if he is to do business with National. It could be Nick Smith. Or it could be Steven Joyce – Peters may be hinting that Joyce is unacceptable as Finance Minister?
NZ First similarities with Labour-Greens
The sources inside NZ First have directed me today to a number of speeches Winston made recently in which his approach to the economy is much more aligned with Labour and the Greens than it is with National.
This is all a clear play by NZ First to get the message out there that it’s not a done deal with National, and they’re deliberately getting the message out to raise the stakes in the negotiations.
Tomorrow, we see the man himself. Winston Peters is set to front up at Parliament and all the political positioning will simply go next level.
So National might be smiling on the outside – but they are full of fear, waiting and wondering if Peters’ utu is about to strike.

Who are the AfD? Far-right populists to enter German Parliament for first time since WW2

THE AFD will now become the third largest party in the Bundestag and promise to cause trouble for Angela Merkel’s Conservatives. But who are the AfD?

 

AfD German Parliament

By Alice Foster
PUBLISHED: 18:23, Sun, Sep 24, 2017 | UPDATED: 18:23, Sun, Sep 24, 2017

The Alternative for Germany (AfD) secured a surpsising 13.5 per cent of the vote, according to the latets exit polls.
The anti-euro populist party has taken political advantage of anger over the migrant crisis and Angela Merkel’s decision to welcome refugees last year.
Although AfD lost momentum due to infighting, a slowdown in migrant arrivals and controversy over Germany’s Nazi past, it still managed to shape the debate around immigration.
Follwoing the annouced results, AfD canditate Alice Weidel said: ““We really got the election results tonight. Now the voters have given us a mandate and we intend to use it with all due humility.
“Millions of voters have given us their trust for constructive opposition in the Bundestag and we will deliver.”

The AfD has became more prominent in the German election race over the past few weeks, according to Emily Mansfield, Europe analyst at the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU).
“It tells us that German is not immune to populism or the far right, despite its history,” she said, noting that immigration was a key issue.
Ms Mansfield said there is still an “appetite for these views” despite the other German election parties seeing the AfD as “beyond the pale”.
No other far-right party has passed the five per cent threshold to enter the German Bundestag since the defeat of the Nazis at the end of World War Two.

Welcome to what is one of my absolute best show in several years with respect to the significance of the topic and the comprehensiveness of coverage. The first third of this show, recorded atop Memory Island here on Aotea, or Great Barrier Island New Zealand, takes a look at the ‘popular delusions’ characterizing the modern mind-set and briefly surveys the ‘psychology of reality management’, from a human perspective of course.

This comprehensive survey of the real global threats to whales and dolphins, indeed all life in Mother Ocean and including herself, is long over-due, and because of the astronomical hugeness of this meta-topic, the show is necessarily more of an outline of major issues, each of which deserves one or more shows of its own. This is what my series of ‘beyond films’ about the whales and dolphins will in part be about.

This show also introduces my new ‘multi-band full spectrum awareness enhancement’ software called HoMoMIMIC, or Holistic Modeling of Marine Impacts from Military-Industrial Civilization., which is both robust and muscular when it comes to helping us to get a grip on what’s really going on in Mother Ocean.


Here is the url of a new blog post I am working on, it’s not done yet but should be in a couple days, it will represent the state-of-the-art in cetacean reality awareness, to the very best of my abilities as free-lance intelligence agent working for Mother Earth.

For now, here is an section from an article I wrote in 2012, detailing the real global threats as I perceived them 5 years ago. Not much has changed, really, just more of all of these.



CETACEAN HOLOCAUST:  THE REAL GLOBAL THREATS 

We don’t know for sure, but ‘hunting’ of animals for food by indigenous peoples seems to have been the norm for as far back as we can see.  I’m not sure what the whales thought about being killed for food even back then, but Inuit in search of meat didn’t have high-tech harpoon guns or whaling ships with sonar.  Hunting was a sacred act to indigenous folk who took only what they thought they needed.

Although historically we believe we have ‘always’ eaten meat (what IF Neanderthals were herbivorous?), ‘civilized’ man could easily abandon whaling and all other ‘meat-driven’ atrocities; yet these continue to run out of control as an integral part of our industrial ‘doomsday machine’.  Despite the publicity, of all the threats to cetaceans, whaling is at the bottom of the list.

Side-effects from the global fishing industry (46), another meat enterprise, have been a long-standing affliction for cetaceans, for example, drift- and gill-nets, in which hundreds of thousands of dolphins die from drowning and end up as ‘by-catch’ annually. Trawling in all its forms is also a wide-spread hazard for marine life in general.

Our pollution of the global ocean (47) is incomprehensible.  Logically, the ocean is ‘sea-level‘ located ‘downhill’ from everywhere on land: all water and everything in it running off from terrestrial sources ends up in the sea.  Not only do all rivers empty into the ocean, ‘civilized’ man has been using the ocean as a sewer and waste disposal site for thousands of years.  The ocean is huge, essentially ‘terra nullius’ (48) as far as most human cultures are concerned, and it’s deep: substances or materials disposed of tend seem to dilute or just ‘disappear’.

With the advent of shipping and motorized boats, for civilian, commercial and military purposes, noise (49), collisions (50), and contamination (51) from fuel, lubricants and wastes became wide-spread hazards as well.  With the massive increase in all of these activities throughout the twentieth century and accelerating in the twenty-first, the global ocean is now saturated with a full spectrum of man-made noise that has raised the back-ground sound level by several dB.(52) The sea is also contaminated to varying degrees, ranging from huge ‘dead zones’ (53) where nothing can live, to areas that are relatively clean and undisrupted, with astronomical quantities of every industrial substance, compound, and chemical ever created, in particular, endocrine-disrupting POP’s , (54) huge islands or ‘gyres’ of plastic , (55), and synthetic radio-nuclides from the real ‘nuclear war’ that has been going on since 1945. (56)

The global ‘energy’ industry is a major threat to all cetaceans. ‘Civilized’ humanity is addicted to the ‘flesh and blood’ of the ‘body’ of Mother Earth, and is stopping at nothing to consume every last ounce of minerals and petroleum that exists.  Deep-sea mining and especially hydro-carbon exploration and extraction is growing exponentially in every part of the world.(57)  Accidental leaks and ‘spills’ add insult to injury and enhance the toxic saturation levels. (58)

Seismic and electromagnetic geo-physical exploration technologies are extremely dangerous weapons in our war on cetacea.  Hundreds of exploration vessels are in operation globally at any given time, each of which is equipped with an array of ‘air-guns’ that can emit under-water sonic explosions on the order of 30,000 joules per blast…enough to deafen or kill any cetaceans or other marine life within a radius of many kilometres. (59)


THANKS TO STRANDEDNOMORE

The frequency of accidents and disasters, as well as their damage-levels, have increased drastically in direct proportion to the scale and pervasiveness of industrial civilization as a whole.  Solid evidence exists that in recent years a new paradigm of ‘geo-terrorism’ has been instituted which is a new form of covert warfare disguised as ‘industrial accidents’, ‘natural disasters’, and ‘environmental engineering.’ (60)

Recent examples of deliberate ‘geo-terrorism’ are the BP disaster in the Gulf of Mexico which began April 2010, and the Fukushima disaster which began in March 2011. Both these scenarios have clear ‘signatures’ of having been manufactured, and both are on-going processes, as opposed to events, which appear to have been strategically-premeditated acts of environmental warfare whose purpose is to poison the planetary biosphere via the ocean as efficiently as possible(61)

As if traditional and/or ‘conventional’ warfare and weapons haven’t been bad enough, for humans, cetaceans, and everyone else on Mothership Earth, today a ‘new generation’ of high-tech weapons systems has been deployed based on radio-frequency microwaves which allow ‘secret wars’ to be waged unknown to the affected populations.(62)

With the planetary metastasis of all-things-military since World War 2, going to the next level with the advent of the ‘war on terror’ since 9/11, and the presence of close to 4,000 U.S. bases and peripheral institutions around the world, the seas of Earth have become permanent ‘theatres of operation’, battle-fields, testing grounds, and waste-dumps particularly for the navies of the world.  The U.S. Navy is the mac-daddy of all military entities on the planet, and is alsoTHE single greatest threat to the well-being of all cetaceans globally(63)



Not only is the U.S. Navy the largest single military institution on Earth, it is also the single greatest ‘nuclear entity’, operating several hundred individual nuclear reactors for research, weapons, and propulsion of ships and submarines.  They have over-seen a large per-centage of all atmospheric atomic tests (including Project Argus, which permanently damaged the Van Allen radiation belts (64), and have innumerable and classified ‘super-fund’ sites around the world, of which the global ocean is the biggest.  They are more than likely ‘legally allowed’ to dispose of nuclear wastes from their reactors directly into the sea.  Even if this weren’t ‘legal’, who could stop them…or even find out?

The U.S. Navy has been the largest backer of research and development of the ‘new generation’ of microwave weapons since Reagan’s ‘Strategic Defense Initiative’, or ‘Star Wars’ in the 1980’s.  These technologies, of which HAARP is one example, are huge antenna arrays with transmitters that target the ionosphere with giga-watt levels of heat.  By means of super-computers and extensive research in geo-physical and atmospheric science, HAARP and other installations can function as an integrated weapons system which can conduct ‘environmental modification’, or ‘weather warfare’, ‘tectonic’ warfare involving man-made earth-quakes and vulcanism, and global ‘mind control’ operations which can neurologically debilitate entire human populations.  Our biosphere in general is saturated with microwaves from other sources as well.(65)



Ironically, by means of unlimited funding, the U.S. Navy has also come to control almost ALL marine biology research on the planet, enabling them not only to ‘weaponize’ every dimension of the ocean and its inhabitants, but also to manage and control not only ‘scientific information’ but also to manipulate ‘public perception’ of what is really going on.  Not only have they been engaged in enslaving, torturing and brain-washing cetaceans and other marine mammals for decades, to force them to function as ‘robots’, but their ‘scientific research’ has been shown to be deliberately and criminally fraudulent, in order to create the impression that nothing they do is harmful to anyone in any way. (66)

While the Navy has come to control marine biology as a whole, as well as the public’s perception of their activities, genuine environmental research revealing the true nature and scale of military-industrial damage and public health threats is being systematically dismantled. (66a)

Of the full-spectrum of war on cetacea being conducted by the U.S. Navy, no form of attack or technology is more devastatingly and pervasively lethal as their mid- and low-frequency sonar systems.  Sonar, which was inspired by cetaceans, and originally used only low levels of under-water sound to perform ‘echo-location’ for detection of ‘foreign objects’, has now been turned against them.



In July of 2000 I first learned of SURTASS, or LFAS, ‘Surveillance Under-water Towed Array Sonar Systems’ or ‘Low Frequency Active Sonar.’  These systems were being deployed on naval vessels around the world and were instantly recognized as major threats to cetaceans.  Having been a lover of cetaceans for decades, this put me on full ‘red-alert’, as I knew that something horrific was up in the world.  This was during that window of time when Bush 2 had been installed as president, which equalled ‘war’, but before 9/11, which came as no surprise to me after learning about LFAS.

These ‘surveillance’ systems use technology almost identical to that of seismic testing:  huge under-water transducers that emit powerful explosions of sonic energy, which travel much faster and more intensely in water than in air.  LFA-sonar is known to create ‘a kill-zone the size of Texas’.  These shock-waves of sound pressure energy literally explode the inner ears of cetaceans, cause hemorrhaging, rupturing of internal organs, and mass-death. (67)
 
Because of the extreme power-levels of seismic and LFA-sonar technologies, which are ostensibly about ‘detection’ or ‘listening’, it’s become clear to me that these may be being used as active weapons systems.  Against whom?  Anyone who lives in the ocean.
 
In recent years innumerable and anomalous strandings of cetaceans, and ‘die-offs’ of many species of land and marine life-forms have occurred.  These invariably correlate with the presence of military exercises and/or seismic testing activities.  Tremendous effort goes into distancing the Navy and ‘big oil’ from any causality or accountability, as their legion of well-trained ‘scientists’ and compliant media distracts us with reports of ‘mystery illnesses’ and other fabrications. (68)
 
Almost no ‘environmental organizations’ dare to criticize or even mention ‘big oil’, for fear of financial retaliation; one wonders who in fact are the biggest donors to Paul Watson and Louis Psihoyos?  Fewer still dare to criticize or mention the ‘N’ word, the U.S. Navy, as being anything more than ‘stewards’ of the global ocean. (68a)

Their greatest role as ‘steward’ of the ocean is their ‘request’ for a permit from the NMFS(National Marine Fisheries Service), a branch of NOAA, which they are known to ‘own’, to ‘take’ approximately 11.5 MILLION marine mammals over the next five years as part of their expanding war-games/testing/global presence strategy.  ‘Take’ is Naval euphemism for ‘kill’.  Hats off to Rosalind Peterson for having the balls to tell the world about this true cetacean holocaust in progress. (69)

In summation, the cetaceans are under direct attack from human activity in a number of ways.  These are physical (nets, collisions, whaling); psychological (being ‘studied’, held captive, experimented on); acoustic (noise, blasts, sonar, ASW); toxicity(chemical and radio-nuclear); and electromagnetic (HAARP and ATOC-related experiments/technologies)(70)

It’s almost impossible fully to comprehend the damage that is being done to the global ocean and to the cetaceans who are the real ‘stewards’ of the sea.  On top of all the on-going waste and chemical pollution pouring in for decades, massive quantities of atmospherically-disseminated chem-trail residues(71) are making their way into the sea.  Scientists pretending to battle ‘climate change’ want to dump massive amounts ofiron filings into the sea. (72) Crude petroleum continues to gush from the Macondo well in the Gulf of Mexico, and the Corexit continues to create illness in human and marine life. (73)

The ‘icing on the cake’ is the incomprehensible quantity of synthetic radio-nuclides pouring directly into the Pacific ocean from Fukushima, on top of what has already been deposited as fall-out from over 2000 atmospheric detonations, perhaps hundreds of thousands of drums of nuclear waste, and DU (‘depleted uranium’) deployed in all recent ‘wars’ and ‘conflicts’.  That a huge part of the global ocean could become one huge ‘dead zone’ is not impossible in our life-times; what is happening…what WE are doing…is beyond catastrophic for life as we know her, including the cetaceans. (74)
 
Individual cetaceans may be hunted or ‘whaled’ but whole populations are systemically endangered by the systemic poisoning of entire regions and the
proliferation of new and dangerous technologies which can maim or kill tens of thousands of marine mammals with a single explosion.

Who is to blame for all this?  WE are.

The Free Individual is greater than the State

Bill Of Rights freedom

by Jon Rappoport
September 20, 2017
In a sane society, the Bill of Rights would be studied in great detail, in every school and college.
The historical incursions on, and the crimes against, the Bill of Rights would be laid bare and excoriated.
“Grand juries” of students would be formed to investigate, in detail, these incursions and crimes, and wherever possible track them to their sources.
Reading the Bill of Rights, the first 10 Amendments to the Constitution, it is plain that the natural rights of the individual are confirmed—and also, the attempt to exercise any sort of excessive power over the individual is shackled.
Why?
Because the Founders saw the handwriting on the wall, engraved for centuries in totalitarian regimes and theocracies.
Here are the basics of the Bill of Rights:
Freedom of speech, religion, and the press.
The right to bear arms.
Housing of soldiers: “No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law.”
Protection from unreasonable search and seizure.
Protection of rights to life, liberty, and property.
“In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation; to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of counsel for his defense.”
“In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law.”
Excessive bails, fines, and punishments are forbidden.
“The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.”
“The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.”
What do these 10 Amendments say about the individual? They say he is of greater importance than the State.
They say the purpose of basic law is protection of the freedom of the individual.
They say that, no matter how many scurrilous critics and logic-choppers may come along and parse the Bill of Rights to their advantage and against the individual, these critics should be cast aside, at the very least.
They say that there is something potentially glorious in the individual.
They say today’s collectivists are deluded, and in many cases are consciously attempting to hijack the basic notion of freedom—and substitute instead, a plethora of free goods and services derived from the State, which collects overbearing taxes and invents money out of thin air, for the purpose of creating unfree and dependent individuals.
Most importantly, in today’s society, these 10 Amendments stand on their own, as robust and profound Ideas, no matter who first conceived them, no matter what those men’s motives may or may not have been at the time of conception.
The ideas are alive. Now.
Centers of education may promote the decimation of the Bill of Rights, may attack the primary sources, may try to wage war against these ideas, but their assault is transparent to those who can see and think.
Those little would-be dictators of the mind are themselves already slaves. And so they want to make other slaves.
Europe, whose great thinkers invented the cradle of liberty, is falling under the sway of collectivist vultures. As a group, those gnawing birds of prey are centered in the European Union, the “share and care” face of fascism.
During decades of unearthing what corrupt European and American fascists have been trying to achieve, I have seen individuals rise up from the swamp of sticky economic, political, and spiritual collectivism and reassert and regain their natural freedom.
It’s a sight to behold.
It embodies a dawn that reawakens the mind and spirit.
It’s a call to all of life.
It reestablishes the great adventure of living and making a future of one’s own choosing.
The education system blacks that out. Major media do, too.
The whole idea of public education, at the beginning, in America, was to educate children about what it meant to be a free and responsible citizen in the new Republic.
That mission was abandoned.
In the early 20th century, powerful foundations (Carnegie, at the forefront) completely derailed education by removing significant study of the founding documents of the nation. This was no accident. It was an effort to control society, to make it over in the image of worker-drones fitting into slots, for “the greatest good of the greatest number.”
From its inception, the Carnegie Foundation was consciously focused on the most effective way to control a population. Its first choice was war. In its absence, the number two method, it decided, was education.
The individual, nevertheless, still possesses his natural freedoms. These freedoms are prior to any laws enacted to confirm them.
But the individual has to find/assert those freedoms within himself, on his own.
His future rises and falls on that profound effort, which begins with recognizing he is separate from any and all forms of the collectivist “equality” glob…
William James, American philosopher (1902): “Probably a crab would be filled with a sense of personal outrage if it could hear us class it without ado or apology as a crustacean, and thus dispose of it. ‘I am no such thing,’ it would say; ‘I am myself, myself alone’.”

The Free Individual is greater than the State
