Quality products for Europe; trash for America and the Third World

Page update: 29.08.07

Major multinational companies which manufacture sophisticated hazard-free products for the European Union on one production line, often, on another parallel production line under the same roof, produce cheap, toxin-filled versions of the same products for less sophisticated markets in developing countries and the USA.

Examples of products produced for developing countries and the USA, but not for Europe, include hair dye containing coal tar carcinogens, children's toys containing phthalates, and furniture containing formaldehyde.

The recent political evolution of the USA has engendered a culture which allows potentially toxic and mutagenic chemicals, banned by the EU, to be included in everyday Third World and American products. This is for business and legal reasons. They're cheaper and the profit margin is wider. To remove the toxins would be expensive and would lead to the loss of American jobs, it is claimed.

Also, to remove a carcinogen from a product on safety grounds is to admit that you knowingly sold that carcinogen to customers before it was removed. In the political and legal culture of litigant America, such an admission could be ruinous for manufacturing corporations.

Meanwhile Europe tells the multinationals to clean up or they'll buy elsewhere. Simple. And the multinationals clean up a calculated portion of their production so as not to lose the market.

There's been a change. A few years ago, the USA was the single most powerful economic force in the world. But now the European Union has a bigger economy than the USA. The EU exports more goods to the rest of the world than the USA. The EU has a higher GNP than the USA. Forget China. Forget India. Europe is the main man of the moment in many consumer sectors.

The political decay in the USA since the year 2000 has been shadowed by a concomitant economic and business deterioration. The USA owns nobody except its supine electorate. The rest of the world owns America. The power dynamic has shifted. The USA is now in the position that the developing world was in, in relation to the USA, a generation ago. Political immaturity has led to macroeconomic decline. All roads, it is said, eventually lead to Rome.

Statins - the honey in the poison-flower

Page update: 22.10.09

The Fat Controllers of BigPharma want you to take more statins. So do the agents of the Western allopathic matrix - people called doctors and physicians.

But what are the facts? What are statins? What do they do? What are their side effects? And how do statins poison you to death so slowly that you won't even notice?

Statins are drugs which are used to lower cholesterol levels in patients who have heart disease, or are deemed to be at risk from heart disease. They have been described as cholesterol-busting wonder-drugs. This is true. Statins do inhibit the production of cholesterol very effectively. But there is a problem: cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease.

And cholesterol is good for you. For many people, feeling good is a symptom of high cholesterol levels. We need cholesterol for our cell membranes, our sex hormones, our bile salts and for the production of our Vitamin D. We need cholesterol for proper neurological function. We need cholesterol to protect us against cancer and premature aging.

But despite all this, we have allowed perceived raised cholesterol levels - hypercholesterolemia - to become the number one health issue of the 21st century.
Hypercholesterolemia is actually an invented disease; a 'problem' that emerged when health professionals learned how to measure cholesterol levels in the blood. High cholesterol levels exhibit no outward signs. This is unlike other conditions of the blood, such as diabetes or anaemia which manifest telltale symptoms like thirst or weakness. And hypercholesterolemia requires the services of a doctor to detect its presence. It's a health issue which makes you dependent on doctors. And doctors are dependent on drugs. And drugs make money for the invisible men at the top of the pharmaceuticals foodchain. Money is good for their health.

In addition to the problem that cholesterol does not cause heart disease and we need not use statins to artificially reduce cholesterol for that reason, there is another problem. Statins have serious side-effects in many people: memory lapses, muscle pain and muscle weakness (due to statin-initiated depletion of coenzyme Q10), neuropathy, polyneuropathy (weakness, tingling and pain in the hands and feet, walking difficulties), weakening of the sex-drive, heart failure (the heart is a muscle and it cannot work when deprived of coenzyme Q10), dizziness, cognitive impairment, cancer, suppression of the immune system, pancreatic rot, and depression, sometimes of suicidal potency. Statins are powerful drugs.

Dr Duane Graveline, a former NASA astronaut and flight surgeon, was put on a statin drug called Lipitor in 1999 for moderately elevated cholesterol. Just six weeks later his wife found him wandering around the house unable to recognize her or his surroundings. His memory lapse lasted a few hours. Duane Graveline was in excellent health. The lapse lasted only a few hours but there was simply nothing to cause it .... except one possibility. He suspected Lipitor was the culprit and since it was the only medication he was on, he discontinued its use. His mental health returned.
Two years later his doctor insisted he continue taking Lipitor. He returned to using Lipitor and within a short time experienced another memory lapse episode that lasted more than 12 hours. Convinced that Lipitor was causing his episodes, he discontinued its use.

Another case is that of Mike Hope. There is an awkward silence when you ask Mike Hope his age. He doesn’t change the subject or stammer, or make a silly joke about how he stopped counting at 21. He simply doesn’t remember. Ten seconds pass. Then 20. Finally an answer comes to him. ‘I’m 56,’ he says. Close, but not quite. ‘I will be 56 this year.’ Later, if you happen to ask him about the book he’s reading, you’ll hit another roadblock. He can’t recall the title, the author or the plot. Statin use since 1998 has caused his speech and memory to fade. He was forced to close his business and went on Social Security ten years early. Things improved when he discontinued Lipitor in 2002, but his was a far from complete recovery. He still cannot sustain a conversation. What Lipitor did was turn Mike Hope into an old man when he was in the prime of life.

Because statins are expensive drugs, they are also profitable drugs. They are sold under a number of fancy names: Lipitor (atorvastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Mevacor (lovastatin) and Pravachol (pravastatin). And there are others. Go private and you can be provided with a fancy name of your choice. It must be better because it costs more. Unfortunately, it won't just cost you more money.

Statins are good for doctors but bad for patients. They are good for doctors because they cause a wide range of serious side effects in many patients. These side effects require further treatment. Further treatment demands more drugs.

For doctors and drug companies, statins are a meal ticket for life. Sweet work if you can get it: patients are the meal.

Spiritual definitions, terms and persons

This is Patrick Bellringer's wordlist from FourWinds.com here.


Aliens
The Star People aboard their Starships now orbiting Earth Shan, who have come to our Earth at this time from more than two hundred other Star Nations. They are called the “Hosts of Heaven” and have come in peace and love to help our planet and her people in our Ascension into fifth dimension by 2012. They have come by orders from Creator God without violence or evil and bring much love, education and new technology to assist us in better health and in cleaning up the pollution on our planet.


Ascended Masters
Those beings who have mastered their lessons in soul growth in 3D and higher dimensions, and have now come to help us in 3D to achieve our mission and to assist with the Ascension of our planet and her people.


Ascension
The changing from third dimension (3D) to fifth dimension (5D), to rise in frequencies. Our bodies are presently changing from a carbon-based cell to a crystalline-based cell to accommodate these higher frequencies. Our planet and those who choose to do so will soon be moving into the fifth dimension.


Channeling
To receive messages by various means such as by thought (telepathy), hearing (audio) or seeing (vision) from another dimension (such as 4D or 5D, etc.) These messages are called " channeled" messages and are given to assist us in 3D to better understand ours and other dimensions.


Cosmos
All existing things, the whole of Creation including galaxies, universes and super universes.


Creator God
The Creator of our Nebadon Universe aka Gyeorgos Ceres Hatonn / Aton / Christ Michael.


Dimension
A given level or rate of electrical frequencies at which the human body and all things vibrate. The rate of these electrical vibrations determine the conditions for living at that level. Those in 5D are invisible to us in 3D due to their higher frequencies. On our planet we live in third dimension. The next levels of higher frequencies are called fourth dimension, fifth dimension, etc.


Earth Shan
The Cosmic name for our planet. "Earth" is a generic term. There are many earths or planets, but our particular earth is named "Shan", meaning the planet of tears.


End Times
The end of our present civilization, the last days of our third dimensional existence on our planet.


Enlightenment
Having reached a greater level of the understanding of Truth, through knowledge having gained wisdom and discernment, and the ability to communicate through one's God Spirit within with higher dimensions.


Hatonn
Creator God, who has taken the position of Pleiadian Starfleet Commander in order to better communicate with us yet living in 3D.


Human
HU-man - Higher Universal Man, a free-willed human being created by Creator God in His image, which means having His God Spirit within by which to communicate with Creator God.


Phoenix
The name of the command ship of the Pleiadian Starfleet now circling our planet. Historically, the Phoenix bird rose from the ashes of the old to birth a new civilization. In the Phoenix Journals "Phoenix" refers to Truth. Truth is again rising from the ashes of lies to bring enlightenment to mankind.


Reincarnation
The rebirth of your soul into a new human body, to return in another lifestream to a human body in third dimension, embodied in human form again. We reincarnate again and again in 3D via the Great Wheel of Reincarnation to learn our lessons in soul growth. We continue this process lifestream after lifestream until we graduate to a higher dimension.


Sananda Immanuel
Also known 2000 years ago as Esu Immanuel or Jesus Christ. Over these past 2000 years of study and learning he has grown in wisdom and has earned the title of "Sananda" which means "one with God". Sananda Immanuel is in charge of our earth's transition at this time from 3D into 5D by 2012.


Source
Pure Light energy, Creator Source located at the Isle of Paradise, the center of the seven super universes, the Creator of All That Is.

Cause and causation

One tame poodle to another:
"Who created the universe,
Woof woof?"
"God created the universe,
Woof woof."
"Who created God,
Woof woof?"
"Nobody created God.
God has always existed,
Woof woof woof."

If the universe
Needs a cause,
Why doesn’t God
Need a cause?

And if God
Doesn’t need a cause,
Why should the universe
Need a cause?

If our personal agenda requires it,
We can posit:
"God has always existed."
But another equally valid personal agenda
Might posit:
"The universe has always existed."

And anyway,
If we posit:
"God has always existed,"
There is a consequential question
To address.
"How do you know?
Who was the privileged observer
Who noticed this fact
And told you about it?"

You might answer:
"God was the privileged observer.
He told me about it."
This then raises
A couple of other
Consequential questions:
"How do you know it was God
Speaking to you,
Rather than the wino
Behind you
In the fish shop?"
And: "If God did tell you this,
Why hasn't he said
Exactly the same thing
To all those people
Who are more intelligent than you?
Does God only communicate
With the brain-dead?"

There would appear
To be a problem here.
Can anyone see what it is?

Might the whole thing
Simply be
A matter of opinion;
A matter of personal superstition?

Romanian UFO pictures - 30th July 2007

Page update:18.08.07

These UFO pictures were taken over a wooded mountain in the Ceahlau Massif near Durau, western Moldavia, Romania, at 8.00pm on Monday 30th July 2007.

This UFO was unusual in that it seemed to keep its long axis vertical as it flew. It also appeared to have a bipartite structure with a deep groove running down the length of its fuselage. In the pictures below it showed up as being bright golden and red in colour.

There are three still images here, here and here.
And there are three video clips here (2 mins), here (3 mins) and here (3mins).

It appears that the same UFO, or a similar one, was sighted over the city of Poznań in west-central Poland in April or May 2007. There is a 50 second videoclip of this one here. It was put on YouTube on Tuesday 1st May 2007.

OZN Romania and ProTV (Bucharest, Romania).
