Joe Macaré, Truthout: “This is our small effort to pull liberals a little bit back toward the left.” Allison Kilkenny and Jamie Kilstein tell Truthout about their new book, why independent media is so needed, why you shouldn’t sneer at vegans and what’s wrong with “The Daily Show.”
William Rivers Pitt, Truthout: In a move even The Onion couldn’t make up, the Susan G. Komen foundation has taken “pinkwashing” breast cancer to a new level by partnering with drilling firm Baker Hughes to promote pink fracking drill bits. Fracking, of course, releases chemicals into the environment that are linked to cancer.
Dan Falcone and Saul Isaacson, Truthout: Noam Chomsky discusses education and indoctrination, the 1960s, the Powell memorandum, democracy, the creation of ISIS, the media and the way “capitalism” actually works in the United States.
Sarah Rosenblatt, Truthout: The corporate media and politicians have decided there is an “obesity epidemic” and focus on weight loss as the cure-all, ignoring societal oppression. In the meantime, food corporations find cheaper and cheaper ways of producing poor-quality food.
Tasasha Henderson, Truthout: For many black women like Marissa Alexander, defending themselves from domestic violence can lead to the loss of their freedom. In Marissa’s case, we see a combination of intimate partner violence and state violence that so often sets a double-trap for black women.
Lynn Stuart Parramore, AlterNet: If you are poor or nonwhite, inequality is in the air you breathe, says James K. Boyce, professor of economics at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and director of the environment program of the Political Economy Research Institute.
Michael T. Klare, TomDispatch: Until recently, the use of the term “the oil weapon” has largely been identified with the efforts of Arab producers to dissuade the United States from supporting Israel by cutting off the flow of petroleum. But the US has now flipped the script and is using it to its own ends.
Paul Krugman, Krugman & Co.: The last time society was as unequal as it is today was during what Mark Twain called the Gilded Age. But expecting the rich not to flaunt their wealth is unrealistic.
Laura Carlsen, CIP Americas Program: Mexican indigenous leaders are accusing President Enrique Peña Nieto of portraying himself as a champion of indigenous rights in the international forum while violating them at home.
Peter Hart, OtherWords: When 300,000 people marched in New York City for the People’s Climate March, the mainstream media barely noticed. They also fail to report that the future of this planet depends on eliminating fossil fuels as a major energy source. This is a new form of climate change denial.
New Support Center Opens for Scientists Under Attack by Deniers, Corporations and Government
Mark Karlin, BuzzFlash at Truthout: The media-amplified legitimatization of anti-science, anti-fact proponents of destroying the earth has successfully confused and neutralized much of the US population.

Thank you for sharing all of this! I have always been fascinated by Russia and the countries if the old Soviet Union. As a child during the Cold War I constantly saw the messages that we should fear and hate Russia, the Soviet Union and the people there. I found the idea that a whole vast section of the Earth could somehow be “evil” or the people there horrible so absurd and insane that I was very drawn to learn more and connect with children there.
Despite those efforts I am always learning new and wonderful things about this amazing country. I hope everyone will click through to read this article and share it widely.
Not only because of the information and beautiful images but also as a personal rebellion against the idiotic contention that we should “oppose” or dislike an entire country simply because the warmongers tell us to do so.
Of all the other countries, Russian people and American people seem to have the most in common as far as interests, humour and attitudes. We are all truly sisters and brothers not enemies.
GETTING TO KNOW THE BEAUTY OF RUSSIA & ITS PEOPLE
Nancy, with Twin Flame Uriel
You and I are presently experiencing just one brief lifetime within the total span of our ETERNAL SELF. For Phyllis, others among my friends, and I a beloved portion of our ETERNAL SELF was spent as a Russian. The love we feel for Russia and its people is palpable.

“Does my heart hang down low?
Should I cry when they go?
How can I say what I feel,
For the longing does not speak a word.
Grieve me not for this I know, that …
Come tomorrow, I will be whole.”
While listening to the background music playing of “Somewhere In Time,” I am directed to take up my pen and attempt to put into words what I am feeling. It is about the…

Full Moon Phase: illumination
Moon in Taurus
Skill: celebrate life
Negative Imprint: selfishness, not resting, self-sabotage, self-sacrifice, battles, disinterest, insensitivity, uncooperative, worry, criticism, offensive
Positive Imprint: unselfishness, peace, clearing, renewal, prophecy, transcending, reassurance, pleasure, joy, valor
The Blood Moon sets today, and with it the energy of the Sabian symbol for the Full Moon phase, “fairies dancing in the setting Sun.” We rejoice in the re-enchantment that is underway in the world.
We are going to need to work a little bit harder to try and get things done today, because the energy favors playing. When we take breaks today, we can return to matters at hand with renewed energy. So, while you need to be productive, break and then return to things. And when your work is done, well, then it’s time to really enjoy something.
Be aware that an unbinding of the past is occurring with the strong effects of Uranus and Pluto. In special ways, our spirits are unbound to ways, habits, thoughts, patterns, ideals, and feelings of the past. The effects are tangible, producing definitive changes in our lives.
When things from the past are released, a mourning process naturally occurs – unless we interrupt the process because we cannot let go. Around 8:00 pm ET/midnight UT, the Moon will begin an opposition to Saturn. This will press on feelings of loss, rejection, fear, and grief that are inherent in major changes. With Saturn, however, tricks are often involved. These are tricks of the mind – mind control. Don’t get caught up in taking on responsibility that is not yours. Don’t engage in self-sabotage. Don’t get lost in fear. These are tricks of the mind. Trust the process of change that is unfolding.
There are also energetic signatures today that lend concerns with safety and survival, which is being massively re-imprinted by controlled media systems (formerly mainstream media). Be smart and follow your heart with these things, but transcend the fear if you catch it.
The Sabian symbols for today’s energies involve pelicans and doves. The “medicine” of these birds involves unselfishness and peace, respectively. These are the things we want to strongly reinforce today. We understand that we are renewed by giving. We understand that we are involved in a new beginning. Let’s focus this way today.
As the unforgettable Blood Moon sets, we celebrate in honor of the clarity and wisdom we have gained. Wanna dance?

We aren’t the only ones who are ascending in this potent and transformative time – the planet we’re blessed to live on is also experiencing an ascension from the third dimension to the fifth.
Some channeled sources have told us that Gaia’s already completed her ascension process and waits for her surface to catch up, but whether or not she’s already ascended, she’s experiencing this process right along with us.
I think we should love, respect and nurture Gaia far more than we have, and it goes without saying that all of the destruction and mayhem humanity feeds will need to come to an end.
We need to stop polluting our planet if we want to help her (or ourselves) ascend, and even though most of humanity wouldn’t be open to what I’m about to say, we can actually communicate with Gaia in our minds and hearts if we want.
Is it difficult to believe that we can connect with the spirit of the earth and receive a wealth of flowing advice and guidance related to our individual and collective ascension paths? We certainly can, but like anything else, our beliefs and what we choose to accept as reality will become reality.
If we believe we can telepathically communicate with the spirit of our evolving earth, then we will. In a lot of ways, we simply have to embrace this idea to experience the flowing fruits of our belief.
Gaia’s experiencing a physical and spiritual ascension just like we are, and something tells me that the spirit of our planet actually strives to connect with each of her human cells so she can help us through our difficult but worthwhile ascension processes.
We’ll connect with Gaia in a realer and purer way when we’re back in the higher realms, but while we’re still in the third and fourth dimensions, we’ll have to rely on the greater abilities we’re just starting to access and hone if we want to communicate with her.
We might even be able to help her amidst her difficult ascension process, and one of the best (and most obvious) ways we can assist this process is to refuse to feed the pollution and destruction that plague her.
We don’t have to live like the rest of humanity, and we can go out of our way to integrate consciousness into our lifestyles and the manner in which we treat the planet that hosts our life.
Humanity’s pollution won’t cause us to experience any sort of chaotic extinction-level-event like some people think, but Gaia does have a lot of cleansing to do that could involve natural disasters.
The best thing we can do is send as much love as we can muster up in hopes that it mitigates any damage her necessary cleansing could cause, and communicating directly with her could help the whole process go smoother.
Grounding the greater energy we’re starting to feel into Gaia’s core is one of the best ways to assist with her ascension, the Arcturians through Suzanne Lie explain.
“This decision to consciously unite with your Galactic and/or Celestial energies, and to ground that expanded energy field in the body of Gaia is the first step towards assisting Gaia with Her Ascension. Remember, whatever Gaia’s Beings experience greatly affects the entire planet.
“Much of humanity has forgotten that Gaia is a living Being who has volunteered to be the ‘School for Ascension’ for your sector of space.” (1)
Gaia made certain ‘promises’ in the higher spheres, just like we did, that’ve proven difficult to live up to in the lower.
“Gaia, like yourselves, made promises from the higher dimensions of reality without realizing how extremely difficult it would be to carry out those promises in the lower frequencies of the physical plane. Furthermore, these promises were made long before Her planetary frequency dropped so severely after the destruction of Atlantis.” (2)
The Lightworkers, wanderers, starseeds, etc. incarnated on Gaia to help her live up to her promises and complete her ascension.
“Because of Gaia’s fall into the lower third dimension, the forces of darkness could take a strong hold on Her planet. To assist dear Gaia, your Galactic and Celestial Selves volunteered to take a form on Her body to assist in raising Her frequency.” (3)
Every creature on earth is experiencing physical/spiritual ascension, the Andromedan Council through Anna Merkaba tells us, and this includes the animals.
“Let it be known that the animal kingdom is going through the exact same allocation of powers and allocations of consciousness.
“And hence, those of you dwelling on Gaia have indeed noticed the expansion of consciousness, and the sudden change in the behavioral modalities of the animal kingdom. For the animal kingdom is expanding their consciousness as we speak.” (4)
If we want to ascend and help our planet do the same, we’ll have to recognize that we aren’t the only creatures on earth capable of embracing a higher consciousness.
“In order for humanity to integrate all that it is to be integrated into the newly-built society, each and every individual must understand that the experience of Gaia’s ascension involves every single conscious being dwelling therein.
“And so, to assist Gaia in fully raising her vibrations to a degree that most are waiting for, humanity must embrace and understand, that indeed, they are not the only ones who are capable of understanding, the Universal Laws of Creation, Manifestation, and Abundance.” (5)
It should go without saying that we’ll have to unite with the animal kingdom if we want to raise our vibration and ascend, and the sooner we realize this, the sooner we can cease mistreating and disrespecting this planet’s animals and let them live as they’re rightfully intended to.
Something tells me that the lower genetic habits of killing and eating other, fellow creatures that are common in humans and animals will fade as our collective vibration rises, and not only humans, but animals will cease eating one another when we can integrate the higher consciousness the Andromedans speak of.
We can start these wonderful genetic changes by putting down the meat and turning to healthy, wholesome fruits/veggies/nuts/oats/grains for the sustenance we seek, and even plants will soon be recognized for their higher consciousness and their potential to help mankind see the light.
