Press TV: US Revealed as The Enemy of the World

Thank you for sharing this. As a scholar and reader of history I have seen this side, the censored, carefully hidden and ignored side of my country for decades. I’ve been called un-American, commie etc for telling the truth. But in fact a true patriot, a person who truly cares anout and loves her land and people can not stand by and silently watch that country act the bully, violate international law and human rights and basically set us all up for a long hard fall into third world status while causing harm to others.
I should not expect better from a nation founded in genocide and slavery but I do. Even knowing those long ignored truths as a child I was inspired by the rhetoric of the great experiment this country was said to be. Like Israel, my country is a beautiful utopian idea founded on and in murder, genocide, theft of land and incredible cruelty to innocent people.
Like Israel, the ideals it was said to represent are good ones. Both countries embody hopes and dreams that are very positive and that should ecist and be worked toward but that good is only undermined and sabotaged by the insane violence and greed that have played such huge parts in both countries pasts into the present.
I believe in the ideals both countries espouse but I feel we can never reach them in either land until truth and reconciliation occur.
You cannot build a cathedral on quicksand. This article and the rest of the distressing disclosures are imho the work we have to do to place a firm foundation upon which our ideals can grow. Thanks to all who are working to get these articles out.

Klabona Keepers is an organization of Tahltan elders and families who occupy and use traditional lands near Iskut, British Columbia known as Tl’abāne, the Sacred Headwaters of the Stikine, Nass and Skeena Rivers.
Description
Known as Klabona by the Tahltan people, the Sacred Headwaters is the birthplace of the Stikine, Nass, and Skeena, three of Northern BC’s major salmon-bearing rivers. This pristine wilderness has been called ‘The Serengeti of Canada’. Thousands of people from the northern interior to the coast depend upon the health of these three watersheds for their livelihood and for the wellbeing of their families and communities. In 2012, to honour the Tahltan nation and thousands of supporters, Royal Dutch Shell abandoned coal-bed methane development in the Sacred Headwaters. Part of Shell’s agreement to leave the area was a promise made by the BC government to ban all other oil and gas companies from the Sacred Headwaters, with a guarantee that further protection of the area would be discussed.
The Sacred Headwaters continues to be at risk. Without Tahltan consent, the government has given an exploratory permit to Fortune Minerals, a mining company with a plan to turn Klappan Mountain into an open-pit anthracite coal mine, 4000 hectares in size. The coal would be exported to a steel maker in Korea.
The project plan includes building 147 kilometres of railway through the headwaters to export the coal, and a 112-km power line linking the mine to the Northwest Transmission Line, a controversial project funded by the BC government that is already drastically over budget. For the past two months, Fortune Minerals has been on-site, actively test-drilling Klappan Mountain for the project’s environmental assessment. Klappan Mountain is right in the heart of the Sacred Headwaters, in the same location as one of Shell’s proposed fracking sites.
This is not the first time Fortune Minerals has pushed into the area without Tahltan consent. The mining company’s presence stretches back to 2005 when an Iskut family erected a blockade to stop Fortune from drilling twenty-five test sites on Klappan. The blockade lasted two months. By mid-September an injunction was issued, warning the Tahltan that if they did not leave they would be arrested. On September 16th, fifteen arrests were made. Nine of the people arrested were elders, and Fortune went back to the drawing board.
Once again, the Tahltan are taking a stand against Fortune Minerals. A number of families and supporters have collected at Beauty Camp at the foot of Klappan, the historic hunting camp on their traditional territory, to send a message to Fortune and the BC government that they are still strongly opposed to a coal mine on Klappan Mountain. The Tahltan issued a 24-hour eviction notice to Fortune on Aug. 16th. The company suspended activity for two days, until Fortune CEO Robin Goad could fly out from London, Ontario to meet with the Tahltan at Beauty Camp. At the meeting on Aug. 18th, Goad stated that Fortune would continue drilling.
For years, and to no avail, the Tahltan of Iskut have been requesting a police detachment in a community of 350 people. But at Klappan, an RCMP base has been set up between Beauty and the Fortune Minerals camp, complete with airplanes and helicopters. There are 6 police officers stationed at the “Klappan Detachment”, suspected by the elders to have been requested by Fortune.
At the protest camp, there is disbelief that a company’s rights trump Tahltan rights in their own territory. “We never doubt that the BC government is behind all this,” said a prominent elder. “Hopefully, this will wake up the investors, to see how we are treated in our own territory.”
Every year, the Tahltan return to Beauty Camp to practise their culture and to pass on knowledge to children and grandchildren. They come together to pick berries and to hunt caribou, moose, and other wild game. This year, the sky above the camp is filled with helicopters and airplanes hired by Fortune Minerals and the RCMP. Excessive air traffic is disturbing the people and the animals, and since Fortune’s arrival, hunting has been difficult.
Please join us to stand in solidarity with the Tahltan Beauty Camp to protect the Sacred Headwaters forever.

Sharing a short personal message from Higher Self by Multidimensional Ocean 4 Sept 2013

Thank you, Laura. It is easy to generate compassion for people suffering on the other side of the world but not as easy when the person is actually getting on your last nerve right now. It’s so good to be reminded of important day to day things like this. I feel like the the love and care we show to one another moment to moment is more important to our ascension process than the big exciting newsworthy stuff.

Sharing a short personal message from Higher Self by Multidimensional Ocean 4 Sept 2013:
We all have our life lessons to go through sooner or later.. some of us do it early, others do it willingly and consciously thanks to their spiritual work, others leave it to the last minute, when all seems too late and confusing, and nothing makes sense any more..
Have compassion for those around you who are in this painful situation, show them love, forgiveness and compassion, and only then will they be able to forgive themselves, and love themselves.

Balsamic Moon Phase: release, transformation, healing, forgiveness, renewal Moon: Virgo

Ruling Mahavidya: Shodashi

We remain under powerful energies that began yesterday with the Sun-Chiron and Venus-Eris oppositions. First we will talk about what this means and then we will talk about suggestions for navigating it.

Here’s the rundown:

– Strong tendency toward self-sabotage, self-persecution, and self-wounding, as well as the tendency to sabotage, persecute, and wound other people and situations. This is no joke today. Issues of victimization, martyrdom, and sacrifice are very, very powerful. We can screw things up pretty badly, so it’s best to put off major decisions until another day if possible. If you find your mind chattering about how much you suck and how sucky your decisions are, you know you are under the negative polarity of Chiron. Instead of piling onto the suckiness, accept what you are being shown, suspend judgment, and disengage from emotional response. It’s just the energy and it is playing out to show you something that you can change.

-Strong tendency toward aggression. In myth, Chiron is the teacher of the arts of war; Hercules and Achilles are his students. Eris is the mythological goddess of chaos and is often associated with the battlefield and battle forces. We can see how these energies are being used to further geopolitical agendas.

-High Magic. Chiron and Eris are also master alchemists (magicians), so the potential for loading or imprinting the energy is stronger. In addition to this, today is the last day of the Balsamic Moon phase – the most magical of the month. There is an abundance of raw energy ready to be put to use. We put this to good use by releasing negativity from the past month in preparation for a new beginning with tomorrow’s New Moon. Be aware that others are doing the opposite (injecting negativity).

Tomorrow I will discuss Shodashi’s efforts for the new month. For today, work with the mission of Balsamic and leave behind any thoughts, feelings, or beliefs that you don’t want to carry forward into the next month.
