When the Founding Fathers wrote the Constitution, they insisted on a separation between church and state and a Vatican Embassy was not allowed in Washington D.C. The Vatican in effect, was not acknowledged as an Independent City State and the political ramifications that go with it.
Those who had left Europe for the USA were not only tired of the nobility in Europe and being underdogs and peasants, they were also tired of the Roman Catholic Church and the many tithes that had to be paid to Rome, including paying for prayers and a church Mass to save a soul from purgatory, or worse, hell.
Most people living outside of Europe today, are unaware of the historical and financial stranglehold that the Vatican had over most of Europe and still does today. As recently as 2013 a court ruled that German Catholics could “only remain in the Church if they pay membership tax.” Many Roman Catholics risk being ex-communicated and thrown out of the church should they not comply with these many tithes and taxes.

The general population is getting sick of the same old, same old. The people are fed up with the mainstream media’s fear-driven narrative about how everyone is deficient in vaccines, how disease is right at the doorstep, how the whole world is falling apart because everyone isn’t obeying authorities.
People are starting to realize that they are their own authority, and can take responsibility for their self, embracing their liberty (and dignity) to make their own decisions when it comes to their health and well-being.
For example, in South America, an herb like cat’s claw bark can be clearly labeled that it stimulates the human immune system. As soon as that same herb crosses the border into America, it becomes inert. The FDA forces the population to believe that this bark has no medicinal properties. In reality, cat’s claw bark is part of my herbal immune-system-stimulating formulas which helps keep me strong through the winter months. If I was still listening to the suppressive, fear-driven media and medical authorities, then I would still be sick, jerked around by this oppressive propaganda.

Nationwide opposition to the Chicago Police’s secret detention facility known as Homan Square is growing rapidly.
It was revealed last week that the CPD is using CIA-like tactics on suspected criminals and American dissidents — denying them of due process and basic rights.
Since then, a massive movement to shut down Homan Square has grown online and in Chicago, as well as around the country. Several hundred concerned residents of Chicago brought Homan Square to a standstill over the weekend, and as many as 1,500 or more are expected to shut it down this coming Saturday. The event will take place at Homan Square at 12:00 pm CST. More info here.

Lord Jacob Rothschild has warned investors that the world is mired in the most dangerous geopolitical situation since World War II.
The 78-year-old chairman of RIT Capital Partners, a £2.3bn trust, used the organization’s annual report to caution savers that the focus of the firm would be the preservation of shareholders’ capital and not short term gains.
Rothschild said that “a geopolitical situation perhaps as dangerous as any we have faced since World War II” has created a “difficult economic background” of which investors should be wary. Rothschild, whose business associates include Warren Buffett and Henry Kissinger, blamed the fraught climate on, “chaos and extremism in the Middle East, Russian aggression and expansion, and a weakened Europe threatened by horrendous unemployment, in no small measure caused by a failure to tackle structural reforms in many of the countries which form part of the European Union”.

The Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) has a slogan: “The constitution won’t defend itself.” Today, the dedicated attorneys that battle for the little guy at PCJF must be thinking – “the constitution won’t be defended by flip-flopping judges either.”
PCJF finds itself in a uniquely bizarre situation. Two prominent judges with brain-trust status on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals, which is based in Manhattan, have overturned their own decision that they handed down just six months ago. That’s strange enough but what really has tongues wagging in legal circles is that they reversed themselves with no party asking them for a rehearing. The case had been accepted for an en banc (full court) hearing at the Second Circuit when the two suddenly reversed themselves.
The case involves Occupy Wall Street – the largest protest movement against Wall Street bankers’ pillaging of the 99 percent with impunity from Washington since Wall Street first began trading under the Buttonwood tree in lower Manhattan. PCJF had filed a class-action lawsuit on behalf of approximately 700 Occupy Wall Street peaceful protesters who had been herded and corralled on the Brooklyn Bridge by the NYPD on October 1, 2011, then arrested en masse. Three days after the mass arrest, PCJF filed the class action lawsuit.

The evidence for the abominable toxicity of Round Up chemicals like glyphosate is already overwhelming, yet there seems to be a never-ending stream of research and evidence pointing toward their dangers. A new study has just been published showing that farmers in Sri Lanka exposed to glyphosate through drinking water are 5 times more likely to develop chronic kidney failure than those who don’t drink herbicide-polluted water.
Farmers in this part of the world often wear scant protection when spraying glyphosate on their rice fields, but it seems that this protection is not enough. The fact that Round Up has contaminated their drinking water is an example of how multi-tiered the problem of herbicidal toxicity truly is.

We sat down with John Rubino for our weekly get together. Heta bank in Austria has perhaps reached the end of the road. The bank, which was bailed out by the Austrian Government in 2008 and is now in need of another bailout but none will be forthcoming. Rather, bondholders and creditors will be paying for the bailout and this will have the effect of triggering the CDS’s (Credit Default Swaps). Will this lead to a series of cascading collapses among banks across the world? That’s the fear among many alternative economists across the globe and only time will tell.

Earlier this week, we saw the conservative Pro-War Lobby in Washington DC – along with their financial sponsors in Israel – aggressively angling for a new war with Iran.
The biggest problem with US General Martin Dempsey’s latest war proposal against Russia, aside from pushing the globe closer to WWIII, is that he is advocating sending arms to an openly Nazi-sympathizing and fascist regime in Kiev. It simply flies in the face of history.
This is also the precise reason why Washington’s billionaire puppet, Ukrainian President Petro Poreshenko, was shunned by European leaders like Angela Merkel and Francois Hollande in Minsk two weeks ago. Hence, both Germany and France have vocally opposed having the NATO allies sending arms to Kiev. Europeans know very well the price they would pay if the region is pushed into war because of a US-led geopolitical power-play against Russia.
