CINCINNATI – As Ohio’s medical marijuana program begins to take shape, Kentucky lawmakers are crafting their own plans legalize the drug in the Bluegrass state.
A bill introduced earlier this year would allow Kentuckians with certain medical conditions who receive a medical order from a doctor to legally use the cannabis in multiple forms.
If passed, Kentucky would be the 30th state to pass laws legalizing cannabis in some form.
Like Ohio’s newly passed program, the measure would prohibit Kentuckians from smoking medical cannabis. Vaping and the use of cannabis-based tinctures, oils and edibles would be allowed. So would home deliveries of medical cannabis — a detail not included in Ohio’s program.
As lawmakers continue to consider the measure in Frankfort, here’s a breakdown of key facts to know about the proposal:
Can Kentuckians grow their own medical marijuana?
Originally, the bill allowed qualified patients to have up to 12 mature cannabis plants and 12 seedlings in a locked, closed facility. But that piece of the plan drew opposition from lawmakers and law enforcement. Lawmakers are expected to unveil a reworked version of the bill this month that either scales back the number of plants or removes home grow options altogether.
Home delivery for medical marijuana?
Under the proposal, qualifying patients could receive up to a 90-day supply of medical marijuana delivered to their home from a “compassion center.” That’s the term used in the bill to describe any licensed business that “acquires, possesses, manufactures, delivers, transfers, transports, sells, supplies, or dispenses medical cannabis, usable medical cannabis, or related supplies and educational materials” to patients.
What medical conditions would the program cover?
Patients who have one of nearly 40 conditions and diseases would be allowed to use medical marijuana, under the bill’s original form.
The include: A terminal illness, peripheral neuropathy, anorexia, cancer, glaucoma, positive status for human immunodeficiency virus, acquired immune deficiency syndrome, hepatitis C, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Crohn’s disease, mood disorders, Alzheimer’s disease, lupus, muscular dystrophy, post-traumatic stress disorder, diabetes, sleep-wake disorders, fibromyalgia, autism, ulcerative colitis, arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injury, Tourette syndrome, movement disorder, porphyria, neurodevelopmental disorders, feeding and eating disorders, cognitive disorders and irritable bowel syndrome.
Also, the drug could be used to treat: chronic or debilitating diseases or medical conditions that produces one (1) or more of the following: cachexia or wasting syndrome; severe, debilitating pain; severe nausea; seizures; or severe and persistent muscle spasms, including but not limited to those characteristic of multiple sclerosis.
As the measure has been debated, some lawmakers have argued that the list is too expansive. Ohio’s program includes 26 conditions.
Who supports the plan?
Among the biggest supporters is Kentucky’s Secretary of State Alison Grimes. In late 2017 she formed a task force to explore legislative options.
In the continuing saga of Cannabis prohibition comes Thorne Peters who was convicted by a Jury of his “peers” on March 1, 2018, in Shelby County Tennessee under Judge Robert Carter Jr. He is scheduled to be sentenced on April 3, 2018.
We will continue following this case to the finale because, I agree with Thorne Peters, in that:
Please view the video’s and information below!
THE SPECTER OF THE GUN was used to take THE TRIAL OF THE MILLENNIUM next level by labeling me a CRIMINAL who committed no crime and a VIOLENT OFFENDER who committed no act of violence according to the evidence and testimony. NO MENS REA is now “A FORTIORI”. As I will have some years to spend in prison, pending a multitude of appeals, I will find fellow prisoners who also have no name of a victim on their affidavit and unleash them upon the system.
For those of you who are speaking up for “THE NO MENS REA WAY” to FREE humanity from PROHIBITION by LEGISLATION, you must understand how The Ministerz of Justice used the guns in the commission of a crime to present guns to the jury that were not in my house, not in my possession, not used in the commission of a crime and were thrown out in Pre-Trial, so they would not have to face the POT case unarmed.
Those of you facing PROHIBITION charges, who are not a target of your local Ministerz of Injustice, who have no guns to be tainted with, will follow the law to proceed PRO SE with the lawful offensive of NO MENS REA and the HUMAN RIGHTS declaration of “I AM THE LAW” in the name of THE KINGPIN Thorne Peters!
Any other position is unlawful; a crime against humanity . . .
DANX for sharing with “THE FREEDOMfund” … I will be sentenced to 12 years in prison on April 3, 2018, with a projected release date of 10/2021, so I need your support to keep my home fires burning; I need to make phone calls to continue being heard LIVE daily on the phone to share the message of FREEDOM with those being oppressed; I need to take care of Lady L, so she is not in the dark in da hood and maybe some of our puppiez . . . I’d love to see them again in life. So, jump in and make a difference in my life as I go down fighting for our FREEDOM from PROHIBITION, even from behind the prison walls. “I AM THE LAW!” #NOMENSREA .
As I sat here patiently waiting for the Kentucky Legislature to take a vote on HB 166, I was thinking of a way to say,
to ALL of the people who took a stand this year in Kentucky!

There are many more which have not been listed here!
Remembering also those that have in past years took up this fight and were the leaders from the beginning!
Gatewood Galbraith – Wikipedia Galbraith supported the legalization of recreational marijuana use, arguing that the framers of the US Constitution “did not say we have a Constitutional right to possess alcohol. They said we have a Constitutional right to privacy in our homes, under which fits the possession of an extremely poisonous alcohol. Now this is the law in Kentucky today. In fact, it is these rulings that keep the Kentucky State Police from kicking down the doors of people possessing alcohol in Kentucky’s 77 ‘dry’ counties right now and hauling their butts off to jail. Now Marijuana is a demonstrably less harmful substance than alcohol and presents far less of threat to public welfare. So it also fits in a person’s right to privacy in their home. It’s beyond the police power of the state as long as I don’t sell it and it’s for my own personal use.”

Again, I have missed so many names that should be listed here!
Many people put their own lives on hold to take on Kentucky’s Cannabis battle, whether it be for medicinal, recreational or even palliative care, they all took a stand…and walked all the way to Frankfort to prove it. Not literally, of course. I hope they all had a decent ride to get there but surely there were a few old broken down cars in the parking lot as well. But by the time they all left there yesterday evening it felt as though they had literally walked those miles.
All different types of people working toward one cause – to get some kind of Cannabis reform into Kentucky!
At the end of the day, the vote for HB 166 was passed over! A very disappointing outcome for many thousands of Kentuckians who very much needed that Bill to pass!
How is it possible that legislation so favored by the citizens has not already become law? What is it about this legislation that has Kentucky’s legislators so scared that they are willing to buck the will of the majority of the citizens?
I am of course talking about the legalization of cannabis for medical uses. With 80% favorability and a multitude of benefits arising from the use of cannabis it is confounding to see the Assembly leadership refuse the will of the people and bury all cannabis bills in committee. For what purpose are they doing this? LINK
When I first started posting to blogs about medical cannabis or “repeal prohibition” it was 2003. That was 15 years ago. By the time I became affiliated with the USMjParty it was 2005 and 2010 before I really became involved in any administration of the group. I always fought for the repeal of prohibition as a whole, but most importantly for Cannabis because yes, I believe Cannabis is a medicine, but first it has to be recognized as a food or ‘herb’ that cannot be controlled by the U.N. or any Government entity! It is our unalienable right to grow and use the plants that our “Creator” put here on this planet for us! Only commerce can be controlled by our Government, according to the Constitution. Therefore what we grow on our property or consume in our homes is actually none of the Government’s business! But they MADE it their business – a long time ago.
To understand how they accomplished this takeover, you can read the “Elkhorn Manifesto” through this link. That was the beginning of the downfall of the United States as we see it today. The U.N. which was formed in 1945 with five founding members including the United States was the beginning of the NWO as we know it today. The ONDCP and the 1961 Narcotic Convention as well as the 1970 Controlled Substance Act and the DEA instituted by Nixon, as a requirement of the 1970 CSA, as per the U.N., conveniently wrapped up our lives under the control of the NWO. I wrote about this a couple of years ago and it has a lot of interesting links of information it that article.
The U.N. just issued a statement reminding all signatory Countries to be mindful of their “Treaties” regarding Marijuana.
Be mindful of the fact that it is not just Marijuana that they seek to control. Control the food and medicine and you will control the people.
We are just now seeing how one world Government will work. It is reaching into all facets of our lives, some not noticeable yet to the average person, not just whether or not Marijuana is “legal”.
All of these things together, coupled with the fact that our Legislature has their own agenda for Kentucky influences the outcome of any Cannabis legislation being passed here.
We still have a couple weeks to see what the outcome will be for the Citizens of Kentucky. Will the hard work by our dedicated Activists pay off for the Patients who are in such need in our State? We can only continue to pray and also continue calling
and make sure your voice is heard!
There is a VERY good article documenting all of the Cannabis Bills in Kentucky this year at Kentucky Free Press. If you haven’t already done so I encourage you to look at it.
Sally Oh, who writes for Kentucky Free Press, was LIVE on Facebook on February 25th, explaining Medical Cannabis, States’ Rights & the Civil War and I encourage you to view that video as well.
Again, I want to thank everyone that has made an effort of any kind in Kentucky toward the repeal of Cannabis prohibition! We all basically want the same thing – our patients to be taken care of and the freedom to possess, grow and consume a plant that our Creator blessed us with!
By Carl Takei, Senior Staff Attorney, ACLU’s Trone Center for Justice and Equality
At the East Mississippi Correctional Facility, where Mississippi sends some of the most seriously mentally ill people in the state prison system, even the most troubled patients are routinely ignored and the worst cases of self-harm are treated with certain neglect. The conditions at EMCF have cost some prisoners their limbs, their eyesight, and even their lives.
In 2013, the ACLU, Southern Poverty Law Center, and prisoner rights attorney Elizabeth Alexander filed a class-action complaint on behalf of all the prisoners held at EMCF. As the case heated up, the law firm of Covington & Burling LLP joined as co-counsel, providing major staffing and support. Despite years of attempts by Mississippi to derail the lawsuit before our clients even saw the inside of the courtroom, the case will finally proceed to trial Monday.
The lawsuit against EMCF describes horrific conditions at the facility: rampant violence, including by staff against prisoners; solitary confinement used to excess, with particular harm to prisoners with mental illnesses; and filthy cells and showers that lack functional toilets or lights. It also sheds light on a dysfunctional medical and mental healthcare delivery system that puts patients at risk of serious injury and has contributed to deaths in custody.
Nowhere was this institutionalized neglect more clear than in the life, and death, of T.H., a patient at EMCF with a history of severe mental illness and self-harm. On Jan. 31, 2016, T.H. stuck glass into his arm. Instead of sending him to the emergency room, a nurse merely cleaned the wound with soap and water. The following day, he broke a light bulb and inserted the shards into his arm. This time he required eight stitches.
Less than two weeks later, he cut himself with a blade hidden in his cell and then tried to hang himself. It was only later that month, after he reopened his arm wound with more glass, that mental health staff finally placed him on special psychiatric observation status.
Yet, because he wasn’t properly monitored, T.H.’s series of self-injury continued unabated until April 4, 2016. Early that afternoon, he stuck his arm, dripping in blood, through a slot in his cell door and asked to see the warden. A lieutenant saw T.H.’s bloodied arm, but, rather than call for emergency assistance, simply left the area. Two hours later, T.H. was observed unresponsive on the floor of his cell.
In response, the prison warden opted to call for a K-9 team to enter the cell with dogs before letting medical professionals examine the patient. By then it was too late — T.H. was dead, having strangled himself with materials from inside his cell. He never once had a proper suicide risk assessment or any treatment to address his self-harm.
The lackadaisical and unconstitutional approach that EMCF staff takes toward prisoner healthcare cost T.H. his life and has caused well-documented suffering among countless other mentally ill prisoners. And it all happens in the context of a prison rife with violence, where security staff often react with excessive force to mental health crises and allow prison gangs to control access to necessities of life, including at times food.
The Constitution requires that if the state takes someone into custody, it must also take on the responsibility of providing treatment for their serious medical and mental health needs. This means, among other measures, hiring qualified medical staff to provide necessary care for people with mental health disorders, creating systems for access to care so sick patients can see a mental health or medical clinician, and making sure that medical care is provided without security staff impeding it.
The ACLU and our co-counsel are fighting to ensure that such care is available at EMCF, where the state of Mississippi has continued to lock some of the most vulnerable prisoners in dangerous and filthy conditions and deny them access to constitutionally required mental health and medical care.
When I walked into one of the solitary confinement units, the entire place reeked of smoke from recent fires. I tried to speak to patients about their experiences, but I could barely hear them over the sounds of others moaning and screaming while they slammed their hands into metal cell doors.
Despite repeated warnings from nationally renowned experts brought in to assess conditions at the prisons, a meeting with top Mississippi Department of Corrections officials, and an offer by the ACLU to help MDOC pay to diagnose and fix the problems at EMCF, Mississippi officials permitted these conditions to continue unabated. Rather than take responsibility for fixing this prison, these officials merely switched contractors. In 2012, they swapped out private prison giant GEO Group, Inc. and replaced them with another private prison company, Management & Training Corp., which is perhaps best known for its horrific record of abusing and neglecting immigrant detainees. The state has also switched prison medical contractors multiple times, with little improvement from one to the next.
But the nightmare might soon be over. Over seven years since we first visited the cesspool that is EMCF, our clients will be allowed in court for the first time, asking that their constitutional rights finally be recognized. That recognition won’t undo the great harms they’ve suffered. But by fulfilling the Constitution’s promise of protection, we can stop new harms and horrors at EMCF, of which there have been too many for too long.

Facebook’s latest step aimed at censoring online information.
6 February 2018
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg announced January 29 that the social media platform will prioritize news from “local sources” in the News Feed displayed to users. The announcement is the third in a creeping roll-out of updates announced by Facebook since the start of the year aimed at censoring online information.
—in favor of “personal moments.” One week later, Zuckerberg announced that of the news articles that are shown to users, the News Feed will prioritize those published by what it called “trustworthy” sources, meaning pro-establishment outlets such as the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal.
Zuckerberg’s post announcing the most recent change made little effort to conceal its political motivation. It would serve to “turn down the temperature on the more divisive issues and instead focus on concrete local issues,” he wrote, so that the population can “all make progress together.”
Presumably this means more information about school bake sales and sporting events, and less about the Trump administration, the global crisis of capitalism, and the growing danger of world war.
Zuckerberg apparently regrets the great technological advance that created the “World Wide Web” and made it possible for people on every continent to communicate with each other rapidly and without corporate and government censors controlling what they say. He prefers the posture of the ostrich with its head stuck firmly in the ground.
The post is filled with the Orwellian newspeak used to describe all of Facebook’s censorship measures. Walling users off from being able to read about events outside their immediate vicinity will help “build community—both on and offline,” and ensure that Facebook “isn’t just fun but also good for your well-being and for society.”
The Facebook billionaire does not want people to have access to unfiltered information on such questions as the United States government preparation to wage nuclear war against North Korea, Russia and China, government censorship of the Internet and spying on the population, mass demonstrations against immigration raids, police violence, workers strikes, or details about growing levels of social inequality, including the fact that five multi-billionaires (Zuckerberg is one) own as much wealth as half the world’s population.
While the change will initially apply to US Facebook accounts, Zuckerberg states that the “goal is to expand to more countries this year.” Pointing to further censorship announcements still to come, Zuckerberg concludes with the note that he is “looking forward to sharing more updates soon.”
There are more than 2 billion Facebook users around the world, the majority of whom access news via the social media platform. Approximately 45 percent of the American population, or 145 million people, access the news on Facebook—the highest news readership rate of any social media platform—according to a Pew Research Center study from November 2017.
Millions of people turned to independent and alternative news publications via social media precisely because it provided a means to circumvent the establishment media, which have become popularly and correctly identified as pro-government propaganda outlets. According to a 2016 Pew Research poll, the American population’s trust in the media had fallen to 32 percent in that year, the lowest level on record.
By confining users to “local news,” the social media giants are seeking to wind back the clock to the days when the population had access to the news mainly through local newspapers, and could find about world events only through the officially sanctioned corporate press.
Zuckerberg’s announcement explains that publishers will be promoted according to how many users in a “tight geographical area” click on links to their articles. This means of surfacing content explicitly demotes web sites which by their nature are oriented to a national or international readership, such as the World Socialist Web Site (WSWS), which is directed to the world working class.
It also enforces the monopoly of giant media conglomerates, which own the vast majority of smaller, localised publications. The concentration of newspaper ownership has developed enormously over the past two decades, via an ongoing process of mergers and acquisitions. According to newspaperownership.com, a handful of top private media corporations collectively owned 1,449 newspapers in 2014, up from 1,128 just 10 years earlier. Many more local newspapers have simply closed their doors.
Earlier this month, Facebook announced that it was testing a new section of its mobile phone app called “Today in,” which will include only local news, events and announcements. The test is being conducted in only six US cities so far. All news publishers who appear there must first be approved and vetted by Facebook’s News Partnerships team.
Facebook’s latest announcement also coincided with Google’s January 26 restricted release of a new smartphone app, Bulletin, to promote what Google calls “hyperlocal” news, which it defines as news “about your community, for your community.”
The application will allow users to publish stories directly to the web through Google, without the need to create their own blog, web page, or use social media. What this will mean in practise is that Google will have even more direct control over the hosting of independent news content not vetted by the state-sanctioned, corporate-controlled media outlets.
Google is already engaged in systematically blacklisting socialist and left-wing news publications, particularly the WSWS, by rigging results from its search engine to block links to specified web domains. This change was initiated by Google in April 2017 under the banner of combating “fake news” and promoting what it called “authoritative” content.
The purpose of the ongoing changes was made clear in a post by Zuckerberg on Wednesday accompanying the company’s latest earnings report. The report showed that Facebook use actually declined for the first time over the past year, a fact that Zuckerberg welcomes in his post. Zuckerberg states that Facebook is taking action to demote “viral videos,” because such material—which includes videos of police violence and war crimes—is not “good for people’s well-being and society.” This argument complements the McCarthyite campaign being waged by the Democratic Party, intelligence agencies and technology companies, labelling all political opposition in the United States as the outcome of Russian influence and “fake news” promoted by the Kremlin.
The post further notes that Facebook is using artificial intelligence to closely monitor every photo, video, message and post on the platform, to “understand all the content on Facebook,” in what amounts to surveillance on billions of people. (See: “From Facebook to Policebook”)
The avalanche of new measures for mass political censorship and surveillance, now being released on a weekly and even daily basis, testifies to the correctness and urgency of the World Socialist Web Site ’s open letter to socialist, left-wing and anti-war organizations, individuals and web sites, “For an International Coalition against Internet Censorship.” We urge our readers to read and widely share the letter and to take up this fight.
I live in South East Michigan about 20 miles south of Detroit. About a week ago (12/28/2017) I got a knock on my door. Outside was a woman from DTE with a smart meter in her hands. “I’ve come to install your smart meter.” DTE provides both my gas and electricity.
I told her “no thanks” and explained that I have both health and privacy concerns with these meters that I have been refusing for about a year now. It appears they want to replace both my gas meter and my electrical meter. Now my wife has fibromyalgia which can be effected by the radiation from these smart meters. And the electrical smart meter is located just outside the house and just a few feet from the kitchen sink where my wife spends considerable time cooking. It is also directly below our bedroom where we obviously sleep each night.
“Oh but you don’t have to have a smart meter. You can get a new digital meter instead that does not emit radiation.”
Yeah I could do that and pay $10 additional each month to have someone come out and read it . . . after paying an initial $80 fee on top of that. And I’m wondering if that will be $20 each month since I have both a gas and electrical meter through DTE.
For the last year I have emailed my readings to DTE each month and I would be happy to send them an occasional picture of the meters, as attachments, if they don’t fully trust my ability to read the meters or report honestly. With a customer base of millions I always wondered why they didn’t simply set up a Active Server Page for customers to report their readings. It would save the costly step of having a DTE employee open thousands of emails and then transpose the readings into their database. I worked decades as a Systems Analyst and know very well that this would save millions of dollars for DTE.
But it is obvious that DTE is not interested in doing this as the want to nudge everyone into having a smart meter. And now that they have installed these meters on 90% of their customer base they are now coming after us “holdouts.” I have already read a few articles where they have actually cut off a customers gas/electricity in order to force compliance. And yes I am very concerned that DTE will force me into submission by eventually shutting off my gas and electricity.
For those that don’t understand the health and privacy concerns of smart meters please read through the following links:
Smart Meter Harm https://smartmeterharm.org/
The Smart Meter Education Network http://www.smartmetereducationnetwork.com/index.php
The Smart Meters are actually just the beginning. By 2020 they are going to roll out 5G technologies that have even more negative implications for your health and privacy. And all of this is being rolled out across the entire US. You can read about the dangers of 5G technology here:
5th Generation Wireless (5G): The Internet of all Things and the Control of all People BRUCE CAIN·WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 23, 2017 https://www.facebook.com/notes/bruce-cain/5th-generation-wireless-5g-the-internet-of-all-things-and-the-control-of-all-peo/2021993037826674/
In any case the people of most advanced nations are being “nudged” in many ways toward compliance. And more and more, when nudging doesn’t work there is also shoving. So in the case of Smart Meters the additional monthly $10 fee will be seen as a nudge. And once compliance gets around 90% the other 10% will be brought into compliance with a shove: they will eventually shut off your electricity.
The term “nudge” comes from a book by globalist Cass Sunstein who worked for the Office of Information and Regulatory affairs for another globalist: Barrack Obama (2009 – 2012). Globalists, such as Sunstein, really do believe that American Citizens are too stupid to make informed decisions as will be made clear from the following links:
Cass Sunstein From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cass_Sunstein
Nudge (book) From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nudge_(book)
OBAMA’S FAVORITE FOR SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SUNSTEIN WANTS TO BAN GUNS, FREE SPEECH JANUARY 15, 2010 https://www.infowars.com/obamas-favorite-for-supreme-court-justice-sunstein-wants-to-ban-guns-free-speech/
In my view both Obama and Sunstein — as well as many of our past presidents — have embraced globalism. And one of the best templates for understanding globalism is to study the UN’s Agenda21 and Agenda 2030. It is also interesting to see that both smart meters and smart grids (e.g., 5G Wireless Internet) are very much a part of the UN’s globalist agenda. So when your local utility forces you to accept a smart meter this is not just some local program being foisted upon you by you local utility. Those at the top of these utilities must understand that they are really putting in place is the infrastructure for a global government. Once in place the smart grid, smart meters and 5G technologies will be able to literally see what you are doing in the privacy of your home.
===== After considerable review, SkyVision Solutions has concluded that the implementation of a smart grid system (as currently envisioned) is supportive of the objectives of United Nations Agenda 21 and what is called “Sustainable Development.” Sustainable Development is sometimes referred to as “Sustainability” and may also be abbreviated as SD21. In fact, in the table shown below which was extracted from a United Nations document dated May 2012, specific references to smart metering and smart grids are mentioned as part of the course necessary to achieve a “culture of sustainability.”
Sustainable Development https://smartgridawareness.org/agenda-21-and-sustainability/ =====
The bottom line is smart meters provide no benefit to the consumer and actually impose a cost because the cost of transferring to smart meters requires considerable manpower and other costs. The consumer will be forced to absorb those costs as well as suffer both negative health effects and loss of privacy. But it does not end there. Analog meters are read once a month. Smart Meters take a reading every second. The most likely use of this “second by second reading” will be to impose higher energy costs at peak hours of the day. Without smart metering this is not possible.
So before leaving the subject of smart meters I want to implant this greater epiphany in your head. If you have a smart meter or are being hassled to accept a smart meter — what you are really seeing is the implementation of a globalist infrastructure that will soon be used to monitor and control you. It goes way beyond some silly program being implemented by your local utility. Smart Meters, Smart Grids and 5G technology are also being rolled out in the EU, in Canada and throughout the US.
So we have established that smart meters are to be the infrastructure of the coming Global Government as envisioned by the UN. So what are some of their other goals you might ask?
* They want to take away you gun rights.
* They have long held conventions against the legalization of Cannabis (e.g., Marijuana).
* They want to bring in hordes of Muslim Terrorists and low skilled workers through a program of “Open Borders” which is currently destroying the cultural identity of England, France the US, Sweden etc.
* They want to force you to accept vaccinations.
These are just a few things that come to mind. But what must also be made clear is that it is not just the UN that is behind globalization. Many of those in our government bureaucracies support globalism. Most of the Fortune 500 companies support globalism. Many NGO’s support globalism. I have often described this as an invisible pyramid where the power lies at the top and the commands are pushed down through this spider web of organizations whose influence is eventually felt in our local communities. And unless you have studied this it all does appear invisible to the average citizen. Even within the Anti Smart Meter Movement I doubt there are many that understand the global implication that these meters represent.
The invisible war in which we find ourselves is being waged between Individualists and Collectivists. Both increasing hierarchy and technological advance both tend to push us further toward Collectivism. Globalism can be seen as the most evolved form of Collectivism and these are the people most offended by Trump’s election to POTUS. I may have my problems with Trump but I think our lucky stars that Hillary did not win as she is a major flexion among the globalists.
Individualism is dying on the vine and will require a New Enlightenment in order to survive. This, by the way, is why I have always advocated for home grows to supply the dispensaries across this once great nation. I’ve always thought it better to keep thriving economies at the local level. Read “Small is Beautiful” to better understand the concept of small cottage industry and how it makes things better for all of us.
What we are seeing in the last several years is what I would call “the end of choice” as well as an end to free speech.
* Get a vaccine or you loose your job.
* Stop smoking cigarettes or we will double your health insurance premiums . . . but we won’t do anything to make cigarettes safer by removing the toxic ingredients
* Eat more GMO foods which are banned in most of Europe because of negative health impacts.
* Get a smart meter or we turn off you gas/electricity
* Accept 5G technology — even though it has both health and privacy implications that are far from acceptable.
* Oh you smoke Cannabis? Well then no gun for you.
* Soon all you will be able to buy is a smart TV that can be used to spy on you in your bedroom or anywhere you have a TV.
* In many nations (the EU, Canada, the US) criticizing the Islamic Ideology is being criminalized in what are modern day blasphemy laws. In 2017 Canada imposed M-103 that does exactly that.
I predict that the activism, pushing back against this nudging toward “no choice – just comply” may well be a significant issue as the, hopefully peaceful, 2nd American rEvolution begins to build. It is coming. Everyone needs to get involved.
Otherwise prepare your children and grandchildren to become slaves in the building Global Technocratic State. Think of it as a new form of slavery. Don’t allow your kids to endure this bullshit. Just saying.
For all of his hard work attending school and graduating as a German Chemist, while participating in the Tour de France in the 60’s, Manfred Donike was most widely known as an “doping expert” and is credited with the first accurate urine testing procedures.
He was Director for the Institute for Biochemistry at the German Sports University Cologne and head of drug testing operations at the 1972 Munich Olympics.
Manfred Donike, at 61 years old, suffered a major heart attack and died in flight to Johannesburg to set up a drug testing lab for the All-African Games in August of 1995.
At the time of his death, Dr. Don Catlin, head of the Paul Ziffrin Analytical Laboratory at UCLA stated:
“He devised all the chemical methods of identifying prohibited substances. This is a staggering blow (to the anti-doping movement), but we will recover…”LINK
The first thing I saw on google January 3rd, while browsing the news was an article at the Daily Beast written by Christopher Moraff.
I had to look two or three times with my glasses on just to make sure of what I was seeing. I checked to see if it was a spoof – and it is not – as it is being reported by a number of news sites.
I immediately thought to myself, “I wonder if Manfred Donike knew what would happen when he came up with the procedure for drug-testing?” Did he have any idea that this testing would be used to imprison people throughout the World? Did he know how many Children would be separated from their Parents for nominal use of any substance that the Government saw fit to deem illicit? Did he know how many people would go to jail or prison or possibly a mental health facility for smoking Marijuana?
Then, on January 4th we wake up to this news!
Manfred Donike was appointed director of the Institute of Biochemistry at the German Sport University in Cologne in 1977, he is THE man who was responsible for the development of drug testing which is still used today.
Single handedly he is responsible for more people being imprisoned or confined in facilities for drug use than any other person on Earth. Whether or not he realized at the time what would happen we will probably never know. Continuing long after his death the long arm of drug testing has nestled into every Country on the face of the planet and threatens to control all of Society at large for a long time to come…
His lab work also led to the massive drug bust at the 1983 Pan American Games LINK
Dr. Robert Dupont formerly of NIDA, Kevin Sabet of Smart Approaches to Marijuana (SAM), and several other notable anti-legalization Activists joined Mr. Sessions in a meeting to discuss the situation regarding the many States who have “legalized” Marijuana in December.
As the meeting was closed-door there was no initial reports except to the fact that it did take place. Mr. Sessions said this about the meeting…
We’re working on that very hard right now,” he said on Wednesday. “We had meetings yesterday and talked about it at some length. It’s my view that the use of marijuana is detrimental and we should not give encouragement in any way to it. And it represents a federal violation which is in the law and is subject to being enforced, and our priorities will have to be focused on all the things and challenges that we face.”(USAG Sessions) LINK
As of this morning, we know what he decided to do! The “COLE MEMO” will be rescinded.
(CNN)In a seismic shift, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce Thursday that he is rescinding a trio of memos from the Obama administration that adopted a policy of non-interference with marijuana-friendly state laws, according to a source with knowledge of the decision. LINK
If anyone thinks that it is not feasible for the Federal Government to drug-test everyone, they would be wrong. The health-care system is set up as a monitoring system. At some point everyone will have to see a doctor for illness.
“Doctors already check for things like cholesterol and blood sugar, why not test for illicit drugs.”
— Dr. Robert DuPont
Ultimately, it will all lead you back to Agenda 21/30. The total control of the people through the food and medicine (and plants) you consume. Add to that drug testing at your local PCP and the NWO has us rounded up pretty well.
Therefore, we MUST have evidence. And what better way to have the evidence at hand than to routinely urine test every citizen as part of our healthcare, as a way to keep us free from addiction? Not to mention the fact that it is all conveniently entered into a computerized health care system for easy access by any Federal entity that is deemed appropriate at the time. Sounds like a great plan to me…(!!) if I were interested in maintaining total control over the population and keeping the prison industrial complex flowing…
Additionally, there was an article written by R. William Davis, entitled “Shadow of the Swastika – The Elkhorn Manifesto” which outlines the historical avenues which were taken to get us where we are at today. Today, on the anniversary of Gatewood Galbraith’s death I invite you to take a look at it. It is a very interesting and informative read.
After the morning news today there isn’t much more to be said about what is happening unless they literally declare martial law across the Nation just to control the potheads.
I can’t wait for the new “memo” to come out!
I’ll keep you informed…
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Indiana authorities are being required under a new state law to collect a DNA sample from those who are arrested for a felony crime.
The law taking effect Monday requires that police collect a DNA cheek swab, along with fingerprints and photographs during the booking process. That will enable law enforcement to check a database for matches with DNA evidence gathered in other crimes.
The sample may be expunged from the system if an arrestee is acquitted, a charge is lowered below a felony, or if no charges are filed after a year.
State legislators approved the new law last April. Supporters contended it would help solve crimes, along with exonerating the innocent. Critics argued the DNA collection goes against the U.S. Constitution’s protection from unreasonable search and seizure.
ATLANTA — A.J. Burgess was born a month too soon without a working kidney, WGCL-TV reports, and his father Anthony Dickerson is a 110 percent match for an organ donation. But surgeons at Emory Hospital in Atlanta won’t perform the operation because Dickerson served time in prison for violating probation.
Burgess, who only weighs 25 pounds at age 2, spent 10 months in a neonatal intensive care unit. Dickerson was tested and proved to be the perfect match to give his son a kidney, WGCL-TV writes.
“He made it his business to say, ‘Once I get out, I’m gonna promise to my son that he can get a kidney,” A.J.’s mother Carmella said.
As soon as Dickerson was released from prison, he was about to go through the steps to donate his kidney on Oct. 3. However, he returned to jail for violating his parole again for possession of a firearm or knife during the commission of or attempt to commit certain felonies, according to WGCL-TV.
It was at that point everything changed for the family and Carmella said that the hospital needed three to four months before the child’s father could donate his kidney.
“The lady said we need your parole information and your probation info. He said ‘why?’ We need you to be on good behavior for three to four months before you can give your son the kidney. And January 2018 we will think about re-evaluating you basically,” Carmella said.
Emory Healthcare issued a statement to WGCL-TV saying in part that organ transplants are designed to ensure success for organ recipients and that it cannot share specific information about this case.
“Emory Healthcare is committed to the highest quality of care for its patients. Guidelines for organ transplantation are designed to maximize the chance of success for organ recipients and minimize risk for living donors”, the statement read. “Because of privacy regulations and respect for patient confidentiality, we cannot share specific information about patients.”
Meanwhile, Burgess’ mother says waiting until 2018 might be too late for her toddler as his health continues to worsen. She says A.J.’s body is failing and he needs bladder surgery.
She is hoping a GoFundMe page will bring awareness to the family’s predicament and provide funds for financial stability.
