If the EU goes down, all life ceases to exist

by Jon Rappoport

July 16, 2017

I’ll get to the European Union in a minute, but first a bit of background.

System building—how do you do it? In particular, how do you build a perverse structure?

There are three sequential steps:

One: Secretly create the system.

Two: Once it’s up and running and established, act as if you’re a mere participant in the system.

Three: Claim that the system is absolutely necessary, and without it, things would collapse.

When those three steps have been accomplished, you can add other flourishes. For example, sometimes you can get away with saying the system was never created at all; it arose organically because there was a need for it. That’s a good one.

THE EU IS SUCH A SYSTEM.

The propaganda: “It wasn’t planned from the top. It came about as a response…

Surely not indeed, would friends or associates of Prince Charles do any of this. Surely they would not get pleasure from seeing animals being attacked and torn apart by other animals.

Just as Prince Charles and his family members would not just shoot and kill wild animals for pleasure and trophies.

Surely not.

Fox hunters are not the well-dressed, refined people some think they are.

The real fox hunters are basically little more than thugs; trespassing on and destroying people’s property, torturing their own hounds and and clubbing puppies to death, riding roughshod over ancient protected areas and punching pensioners in the face:

Not to mention enjoying watching beautiful animals being torn apart while still alive for ‘pleasure’.

In a latest example of their thuggish barbarity, a man out walking his dogs was attacked by hunters and hounds from the Mendip Farmers Hunt, resulting in horrific injuries to both of his dogs:

But according to the local police, the thuggish attack will not even be investigated.

Could the reluctance from local police to react to this crime be connected in any way to the fact that a leading member of the hunt is Alastair Martin, the Secretary of the Duchy…

A very powerful post. Why should gender relate to your destiny for are we not all equal. However, various Societies and cultures would appear to feel that some are more equal than others.

Should this be so, then should not females be more equal than males, for if it was not for females then the human race would not exist.

But some males feel they are the dominates in the species, but that could be due to only to evolution where the males were deemed to be the hunter gatherer, but in fact it is by working together male and female as a team that the human races has continued to exist.

However, this assumed ‘norm’ of males with females should not be deemed the only basis of relationship.

For each human is an individual where each one is different and this can and does extend to relationships, as some wish to be males to males and females to females.

We should, therefore respect each other and allow each to form their own relationships, where each within the relationship should feel they are equals.

Surely this would ensure more equality and understanding and would be better for living co-existence throughout the whole world.

Scene 1 : please Dr. Can you diagnose and tell us the gender of the my to be born kid.”

If it’s a girl I want it to get aborted.

The unborn cried, thinking “is this womb also not safe for me? “


Scene 2:(a loud sound of crying came out of ward)

“Dr. Who has arrived? ” asked the lady. ” congratulations!! An angel has arrived, you have became a grandma, ” replied the doctor.

” oh god! It was better she could have died when she gave birth. “

And there were two individuals crying at the same time one for her life and other for why is she alive.

Scene 3: “

it’s not necessary for you to study, you don’t have to end up doing job, it’s sufficient you have studied for writing letters, go and prepare tea for your brother…

Girls with disabilities in developing countries are effectively unseen and unheard and are often not benefiting from international efforts to improve access to education in developing countries.

The disability rights movement changed my life. I have been benefiting from legislation fought for by disabled activists who came before me since I was a young child. Like Mike Ervin and various other activists, I am a former poster brat, a kid pimped out for profit by the machine that was MDA, While still cute enough to raise them tons of cash. For a long time, my identity was intertwined with what I thought I understood about my life as a disabled person.

I had grown up believing and being told that most if not all of us with neuromuscular disabilities would not survive into adulthood. There was no expectation on my life, so my doctors told me consistently that they had absolutely no idea of the outcome of my life. At the same time, I was internalizing the message I was supposed to be spreading in order to raise money for MDA, the idea that without a cure our lives are not worth living if we survive, at all. Jerry Lewis used the pity model for profit, to make MDA millions. They promised a cure…to make us “normal” and as children we took that to heart. Many of us thought of ourselves as not normal. We believed we were or at least all of our friends with neuromuscular disabilities would die young. For some, there was a belief of no point in attempting to have a future, because it was pointless if death was coming anyway.

On Monday, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke visited Bears Ears National Monument, where he showed surprising disrespect towards an indigenous woman, an organizer from the non-profit PANDOS, who was trying to ask him about his failure to meet with Native American leaders. (Video below.) It came across as patronizing and sexist, yet one more example of a federal official marginalizing American Indian voices. I have sent the following letter to Secretary Zinke in protest.
