Billionaires Won’t Be Happy Until the US Becomes Austerity-Ravaged Greece

The Daily Take Team, The Thom Hartmann Program: Billionaires don’t need a social safety net, and they don’t care if working-class people are thrown onto the streets to starve. If anything, doing that provides them with cheaper and more desperate labor. The rich don’t want their not-so-hard earned money going to help others.

(I haven’t read this last article yet but I am disappointed in Truthout for joining the mainstream media in this latest crusade against the anti-vaccine movement. The problem with vaccines in my opinion is not the germs but the poisonous additives and preservatives like mercury-a well known cumulative neurotoxin. I like the idea of vaccinations but I do not appreciate the corporations making public health a cash cow at the expense of innocent children. This should not be a partisan issue with liberals joining the corporations side in mocking the anti-vaccine movement. That shows a disgusting lack of awareness and Orwellian mind programming.

Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It’s Home to The Holler We Go!

Thank you Cindy! I love the way you find beauty everywhere and share it with all of us!

Living most of my life in the subtropical climate, I have often thought that it’s easier to keep warm than to get cool but it all depends on how cold or hot. My theory is that more trees, less concrete makes any climate easier to work with. Earth sheltered houses in cold climates and designs like the Polynesian canoe house here help keep the comfort level despite the climate. I’m amazed at the myriad adaptations and designs that work WITH the local conditions to create comfort. I’m looking forward to seeing the new rennaissance in architecture as we shift to more realistic power use. I imagine we will see wildly creative versions of Tolkien’s Elven cities adapted to local conditions all over the world; -)

Back to The Holler expecting hum-drum….but no, The Holler hates hum-drum, so look who chaired the welcoming committee!
Isn’t he a beaut! He’s been hanging around here. His wingspan clocks in at almost exactly 5 inches.
He’s a Ceanothus Silk Moth. His larvae feeds on the wild lilacs (ceanothus) that grow all over Hollerdom.
The adults fly at The Holler in January and do not feed. This is the first one I have ever seen.
If you’re feeling winter weary, here’s a couple of clicks of the tropics to warm you up!
This traditional Polynesian Canoe House is built to catch the tropical breezes and is amazingly cool even on morbidly hot tropical days. Remember Frost saying, if the world ended in fire or ice, he’d “go with those who favor fire?” He is one of my favorite poets, but he must not have spent much time in the tropics…

Special Report: Money and Lies in Anti-Human Trafficking NGOs

Anne Elizabeth Moore, Truthout: Anti-trafficking organizations are said to do work both progressives and conservatives agree needs doing.

A short update on the energies

Thank you Aisha!

aisha north

By now, much has been set into motion that will once again necessitate a period of incubation before it can take fully hold, and what we mean by that is simply this: you have once again completed one of many cycles whereby your energetic environment, both on the inside and on the outside, has been reset to such a degree, the overall effect it has on your physical and mental vehicle is so great, it needs to be incrementally digested. In other words, look upon this as a period of more quiet reflection, and when we use the word reflection, we use it on purpose. For now is the time to not only cast your eyes about in ways that will be better suited to take in the inner workings of your own physical vehicle, but also in a manner that will enable you to entrain yourself with what is…

Critical Analysis of David Wilcock | A Resource for the Awakening Human: David Wilcock and the Real NWO (part 1 and 2)

Thank you Jean! This sums up exactly what I have been saying for the last few years tjough this gentleman makes it much clearer and easier to understand than I could. I started to feel in 2011 like so much of the new age/truth movement blogging, email lists etc were like fish weirs to capture the minds that were questioning but not yet free.

One thing I noticed is the tendency to play everyone off against one another. Imho every group, organization, religion, philosophy, nation etc has always had within it two opposing forces. No matter what there are greedy selfish people and caring altruistic people. We naturally self-sort as we work toward our ideals and goals.

So some Masons set out to control the population behind the scenes and directly some of their fellows set out to liberate humanity. I pointed this out in the discussion on Agenda 21. It was a grassroots movement to stop corporations and corrupt people in government, UN etc from destroying our planet and poisoning us all. The cabal/1% crowd of course acted at the last minute to cripple it by removing enforcement provisions and placing a twenty year delay to implement it. They spent the 20 years financing an anti Agenda 21 movement to prevent the local power that Agenda 21 promotes from ever coming online.

More important than one UN supported peoples movement’s destruction is the lesson here about how the oligarchy operates. They create fake peoples movements to destroy real peoples movements. They spread disinformation to keep us polarized and reliant on false promises so we don’t rely on one another.

I’m so grateful for you (Jean) and all of my other fellow bloggers because contrary to the plan of the oligarchy we learn and grow. We support and rely on one another. We share information and love. And the bonds of community and caring are stronger than greed-whether online or off.

One thing that always inspired me and gave me hope is the integrity and compassion, the obvious caring and love that bloggers like Jean Haines and so many others blogging about the Shift have always demonstrated. I always knew even when there were episodes of drama and disagreement that underneath it we are a community and our determination to find the truth and make our world better is rooted in that-in love, caring and community.
David Wilcock appears to be so determined to see the good that it sometimes makes it easier for people to trick him and use him. But he is a beautiful person acting from love so I hope when people read this they keep that in mind.

We are all easily led when we are desperate to find good amid chaos, fear and despair. When I first started reading this type of blog, I chose to suspend disbelief as if I were reading a novel. I needed hope in order to survive the severity of my illness so I chose to shut off my intellectual abilities for a time.

Whether consciously or not I think we all do this. Whether it’s to swallow the official version of “reality” sold to us on television and in the media, or to find hope in alternatives; we often surrender to survive.

The key is we can choose at any time to make our own hope, to recall our sharpest intellect and use it to solve our personal and collective problems. That is exactly what I think this article is calling us all to do.

NorthPoint Astrology Journal | January 26 to February 1, 2015 | Pam Younghans

Posted Sunday, January 25, 2015
Astrology Journal
Your Guide to Planetary Energies for
January 26 to February 1, 2015

By Pam Younghans

VENUS appears in our highlighted aspects list several times, so we can assume that issues ruled by this planet will be in our awareness this week. These issues include relationships, financial resources, our sensitivity to art and beauty, and our most deeply felt values.

Taking it from a different perspective, let’s walk through the week alongside Venus and see how it unfolds.

ON MONDAY, Venus is aware of a darker energy in her peripheral vision. At times she thinks she’s making things up, that her mind is fooling her — but the sense that something is amiss keeps nipping at her heels.

This is Venus’ last day in Aquarius, before entering Pisces on Tuesday. Pluto forms a semisquare with Venus on Monday, and this is the source of her sense of something being wrong.

What is “wrong” is not Pluto, but the fear and distrust that Pluto’s energy can sometimes make us conscious of. Pluto brings into our awareness something that has been beneath the surface, that we’ve either not known was there or have kept hidden because we didn’t want to think about it.

A SEMISQUARE is not a major aspect, and often represents a minor challenge to the status quo. But at the same time, semisquares provide an opportunity to address an issue while it is still in its less obvious stage, before the planets involved reach a more confrontational square or opposition aspect.

The opportunity we have early in the week, as Pluto and Venus form a semisquare, is to pay attention to those fears in our peripheral vision — not to make them bigger than they are, but to be aware of how those minor fears are actually affecting our well-being.

With Venus in Aquarius, the fears may relate to having valued freedoms denied or to feeling controlled by circumstances or people. If these fears come up, it is worthwhile to observe whether the loss of freedom is caused by the circumstances that we fear, or if our fear itself is the true cause of our loss of freedom.

ON TUESDAY, Venus leaves freedom-loving, airy Aquarius and enters the compassionate, creative waters of Pisces. This change of signs is a subtle shift, but marks the beginning of a three-week phase during which Venus is motivated more by her ideals than by practical concerns.

While Venus is in Pisces, we can be more understanding and forgiving, but also more gullible in relationships than we might otherwise be. We may also want to be careful of making major decisions about finances and spending during these three weeks, since our idealism is stronger than our realism — especially with Mercury also retrograde during this time.

But, while Venus is in Pisces, our sensitivity to others and our artistic sensibility are both enhanced. We may also find it easier to access inspiration, both in our creative activities and in our spiritual pursuits.

IF VENUS MADE any missteps early in the week, perhaps trusting the wrong people, taking a role of self-sacrifice in an effort to save someone, or not thinking through all the practical aspects of a purchase, she will come face-to-face with the realities of her choices with the Saturn-Venus square on Friday.

Even without any errors in judgment, the meeting with Saturn indicates a challenge to her usual ways of approaching relationships and financial concerns, requiring that Venus gets very clear on what works and doesn’t work in these areas.

ON SUNDAY, Venus catches up with Neptune, and the two planets begin to dance, sailing across the floor in a beautiful waltz. These two planets are already in sync, and as they dance, it can seem that their feet barely touch the floor.

Depending on our individual propensities and the needs of our own natal Venus, this can be either a welcome time to let go of needing anything beyond the beauty of the moment, or a frustrating time when we are not getting the concrete connection or real experience we are looking for.

OTHER PLANETARY ASPECTS this week include a Uranus-Mercury sextile on Tuesday, providing opportunities for us to rethink our position on some issue, and to tap into our intuitive knowing for solutions. As the Sun aligns with retrograde Mercury on Friday, the viability of those solutions will be highlighted, and we’ll see more clearly what still needs to be done before we implement our ideas.

Mars is supported by a sextile from Pluto on Friday, so we may feel more empowered than usual, and more in touch with the courage needed for going forward. But we must also deal with those leftover fears about not being able to have what we want, since Chiron conjoins Mars on Saturday.

LAST CHANCE! If you’d like to buy the replay of my recent teleclass on the astrological influences for the first half of 2015, please send an email topam with “TeleclassReplay” in the subject line, and I’ll reply with details.

MORE Disclosure News USA-NASA Cuts Live ISS Video Feed As UFO Appears (Real Footage) | Collective-Evolution

This article contains multiple videos so I am posting the intro only. Please click the link below to see the full article with all videos. Blessings,

NASA Cuts Live ISS Video Feed As UFO Appears (Real Footage)
January 23, 2015 by Arjun NASA was recently accused of cutting their live feed from the International Space Station (ISS) just as an Unidentified Flying Object (UFO) was spotted hovering in sight.
The event took place on January 15th and is causing quite a stir. As you can see, it’s a small grey object slowly rising and then disappearing as NASA cut the feed. I am not saying this is an extraterrestrial space craft, but it’s unidentified.

That being said, I have provided some officially documented UFO footage from NASA in a video below this one, as well as more, vital information regarding the UFO phenomenon.

The video seems to be going viral, and sparking much controversy as many mainstream media outlets are claiming that the accusers are ‘conspiracy theorists.’ Anytime the subject of UFOs is placed within the realm of conspiracy theory, it does harm to a very serious issue that has had the attention of governments, military/intelligence agencies and many others for a very long time -not to mention several NASA astronauts.
