1-15-2013 - DREAM - I was dreaming all night about putting together a web
page about men and gardening. Each man's picture was on the page to
identify him. Toward the end of the dream, I was with some men in a large
house and there was a problem with getting enough food into the house to feed
One of the men got 4 empty boxes together and carried them outside to get
some food. The other men apparently didn't know where the food was going
to come from.
Before the dream ended, A voice came to me that said, "You are doing very
well. We think you are doing well enough to participate in the 'endgame'.
1-15-2013 - NAP DREAM - I was in a large house with square rooms, and
we were gardening indoors.
I didn't see any windows in these rooms, but I knew that one room faced east
and the other room faced west, but without windows that doesn't really make any
difference as far as I know.
It was time to make dinner and the vegetables would come from our own garden.
The garden was planted in white wooden boxes 3 ft x 3 ft x 3 ft.
The plants were large, lush, and green, and the leaves of the particular
plants I wanted to pull up looked familiar but I couldn't immediately remember
what each plant was and they weren't labeled.
So I asked my Mom what one particular plant was and she said "Sweet
I love Sweet Potatoes, so I decided that's what we would have with whatever
other dish we had.
So I reached for the plant to pull it out of the ground and woke up.
Yesterday, I had this gardening dream;
1-13-2013 AN OPRAH DREAM
This dream was about Oprah gardening with the brother of "Everybody loves
Raymond" Brad Garrett, and Marianne Williamson. They were growing
tomatoes and peppers in three different colors on a wire stairway welded
Brad Garrett (the brother) was on the top level, Oprah was on the second
level and Marianne was on the first level.
They grew tomatoes and peppers in three colors, similar to the dream I had
about that same topic:
In this dream, Oprah's tomatoes froze and turned rotten at the end of the
dream, just like the ones I have in my garden outside today, where we had a hard
freeze at 25 degrees.
1-16-13 - DREAM - I had a repeat of the dream from yesterday with the white
boxes garden inside the house, with my Mom and Oprah being there, but it was
followed by two visions as I woke up of a display of outdoor water faucets, in a
open fronted box about 3 feet wide by 3 feet high on a white stand for the
public to make their choice of faucet to purchase.
There are no images on google.com like I dreamt, but here is an example of

Yet another disturbing reason has emerged as to why you should be avoiding
health-devastating genetically modified organisms, and it may be one of the most
concerning yet. We know that GMO consumption has been linked to a host of
serious conditions, but one thing we are not so sure about is the recent
discovery of a hidden viral gene deep within genetically modified crops.
For years, GMOs have been consumed knowingly and unknowingly around the
globe, with Monsanto and the United States government claiming that the altered
franken crops are perfectly safe despite very limited (or virtually none in some
cases) initial testing and scientists speaking out against the dangers. One such
danger that has actually not been spoken about has been revealed in a recent
report by a safety watchdog group known as the European Food Safety Authority
Another Dirty Secret of Monsanto
In the EFSA report, which can be
online, you can find (within the scientific wording) that researchers
discovered a previously unknown viral gene that is known as ‘Gene VI’.
What’s concerning is that not only is the rogue gene found in the most prominent
GMO crops and about 63% of GMO traits approved for use (54 out of 86 to be
precise), but it can actually disrupt the very biological functions
within living organisms. Popular GMO crops such as Roundup-Ready
soybeans, NK603, and MON810 corn were found to contain the gene that
induces physical mutations. NK603 maize, of course, was also
recently linked to the
mass tumors in rats.
Independent Science News, Gene VI also inhibits RNA silencing. As you may
know, RNA silencing has been pinpointed as vital for the proper functioning of
gene expression when it comes to RNA. Perhaps more topically, it is a defense
mechanism against viruses in plants and animals alike. On the contrary, many
viruses have developed genes that disable this protective process. Independent
Science News reports that the Gene VI is one such gene.
Overall, there is a degree of knowledge on Gene VI. What we do know going by
information within the report is that the gene:
Helps to assemble virus particles
Inhibits the natural defense of the cellular system
Produces proteins that are potentially problematic
Makes plants susceptible to bacterial pathogens
All of which are very significant effects that should be studied in depth by
an independent team of scientists after GMO products are taken off the
market pending further research on the entire array of associated diseases. And
that does not even include the effects we are unaware of.
This is yet another incident in which Monsanto and other biotech companies
are getting away with an offense against the citizens of the world with (most
likely) no action taken by the United States government. What we have seen,
however, is nations like Russia, Poland, Hungary, and Peru taking a stand
against Monsanto in direct opposition to their disregard for public safety.
Russia, in fact, banned Monsanto’s GMO corn variety
after it was
linked to mass tumors in rats.
As more and more dirty secrets come out from the GMO industry at large, it
gives further reason and more support to remove GMOs as a whole from the food
The objectives of the plan are described in a memorandum from the director
Anthony S. Tangemann to the Deputy Assistant Director of Field Operations

All civilizations have depended on
agriculture for subsistence. Growing food on farms results in a surplus of

surpluses have been especially important because they can be
for a long time. A surplus of food permits some people to do things besides
produce food for a living: early civilizations included
priestesses, and other people with specialized careers. A surplus of food
results in a division of labor and a more diverse range of human activity, a
defining trait of civilizations. However, in some places hunter-gatherers have
had access to food surpluses, such as among some of the indigenous peoples of
Pacific Northwest and perhaps during the
Natufian culture. It is possible that food surpluses and relatively large

from the food producing segment of the population. Early civilizations developed
money as a medium

village the potter makes a pot for the brewer and the brewer compensates the
potter by giving him a certain amount of beer. In a city, the potter may need a
new roof, the roofer may need new shoes, the cobbler may need new horseshoes,
the blacksmith may need a new coat, and the tanner may need a new pot. These

considered a hallmark of civilization and "appears to accompany the rise of
complex administrative bureaucracies or the conquest state."
Traders and bureaucrats relied on writing to keep accurate records. Like money,
writing was necessitated by the size of the population of a city and the
complexity of its commerce among people who are not all personally acquainted
with each other. However, writing is not always necessary for civilization. The
civilization of the Andes did not use writing at all, yet it still functioned as

Through history, successful civilizations have spread, taking over more and
more territory, and assimilating more and more previously-uncivilized people.
Nevertheless, some tribes or people remain uncivilized even to this day. These
cultures are called by some "primitive,"
a term that is regarded by others as pejorative. "Primitive" implies in some way
that a culture is "first" (Latin = primus), that it has not changed since the
dawn of humanity, though this has been demonstrated not to be true.
Specifically, as all of today's cultures are contemporaries, today's so-called
primitive cultures are in no way antecedent to those we consider civilized. Many
anthropologists use the term "non-literate"
to describe these peoples.
Civilization has been spread by
religious conversion, the extension of
bureaucratic control and
trade, and by
introducing agriculture and writing to non-literate peoples. Some non-civilized
people may willingly adapt to civilized behaviour. But civilization is also
spread by the technical, material and social dominance that civilization
"Civilization" can also refer to the
culture of a
complex society, not just the society itself. Every society, civilization or
not, has a specific set of ideas and customs, and a certain set of manufactures
and arts that make it unique. Civilizations tend to develop intricate cultures,
including literature, professional art, architecture, organized religion, and
complex customs associated with the elite.
The intricate culture associated with civilization has a tendency to spread
to and influence other cultures, sometimes assimilating them into the
civilization (a classic example being
civilization and its influence on nearby civilizations such as
Many civilizations are actually large cultural spheres containing many nations
and regions. The civilization in which someone lives is that person's broadest
Many historians have focused on these broad cultural spheres and have treated
civilizations as discrete units. Early twentieth-century philosopher
uses the German word "Kultur," "culture," for what many call a "civilization".
Spengler believes a civilization's coherence is based on a single primary
cultural symbol. Cultures experience cycles of birth, life, decline, and death,
often supplanted by a potent new culture, formed around a compelling new
cultural symbol. Spengler states civilization is the beginning of the decline of
a culture as, "...the most external and artificial states of which a species of
developed humanity is capable."
This "unified culture" concept of civilization also influenced the theories
Arnold J. Toynbee in the mid-twentieth century. Toynbee explored
civilization processes in his multi-volume
A Study of History, which traced the rise and, in most cases, the
decline of 21 civilizations and five "arrested civilizations." Civilizations
generally declined and fell, according to Toynbee, because of the failure of a
"creative minority", through moral or religious decline, to meet some important
challenge, rather than mere economic or environmental causes.
Samuel P. Huntington defines civilization as "the highest cultural grouping
of people and the broadest level of cultural identity people have short of that
which distinguishes humans from other species." Huntington's theories about
civilizations are discussed
Another group of theorists, making use of
systems theory, looks at a civilization as a
complex system, i.e., a framework by which a group of objects can be
analyzed that work in concert to produce some result. Civilizations can be seen
as networks of cities that emerge from pre-urban cultures, and are defined by
the economic, political, military, diplomatic, social, and cultural interactions
among them. Any organization is a complex
social system, and a civilization is a large organization. Systems theory
helps guard against superficial but misleading analogies in the study and
description of civilizations.
Systems theorists look at many types of relations between cities, including
economic relations, cultural exchanges, and political/diplomatic/military
relations. These spheres often occur on different scales. For example, trade
networks were, until the nineteenth century, much larger than either cultural
spheres or political spheres. Extensive trade routes, including the
Central Asia and
Ocean sea routes linking the
India, and China,
were well established 2000 years ago, when these civilizations scarcely shared
any political, diplomatic, military, or cultural relations. The first evidence
of such long distance trade is in the ancient world. During the
period Guillermo Algaze has argued that trade relations connected Egypt,
Mesopotamia, Iran and Afghanistan.
Resin found later in the
Royal Tombs of Ur it is suggested was traded northwards from Mozambique.
Many theorists argue that the entire world has already become integrated into
a single "world
system", a process known as
globalization. Different civilizations and societies all over the globe are
economically, politically, and even culturally interdependent in many ways.
There is debate over when this integration began, and what sort of integration –
cultural, technological, economic, political, or military-diplomatic – is the
key indicator in determining the extent of a civilization. David Wilkinson has
proposed that economic and military-diplomatic integration of the
Egyptian civilizations resulted in the creation of what he calls the
"Central Civilization" around 1500 BCE.
Central Civilization later expanded to include the entire Middle East and
Europe, and then expanded to a global scale with European colonization,
integrating the Americas, Australia, China and Japan by the nineteenth century.
According to Wilkinson, civilizations can be culturally heterogeneous, like the
Central Civilization, or homogeneous, like the Japanese civilization. What
Huntington calls the "clash of civilizations" might be characterized by
Wilkinson as a clash of cultural spheres within a single global civilization.
Others point to the
the first step in globalization. The more conventional viewpoint is that
networks of societies have expanded and shrunk since ancient times, and that the
current globalized economy and culture is a product of recent European
has argued that the defining characteristic of the 21st century will be a
clash of civilizations. According to Huntington, conflicts between
civilizations will supplant the conflicts between
nation-states and ideologies that characterized the 19th and 20th centuries.
These views have been strongly challenged by others like
Said, Muhammed Asadi and
Ronald Inglehart and
Norris have argued that the "true clash of civilizations" between the Muslim
world and the West is caused by the Muslim rejection of the West's more liberal
sexual values, rather than a difference in political ideology, although they
note that this lack of tolerance is likely to lead to an eventual rejection of

independent, disconnected nation-states to a world of increased global
connectivity with worldwide institutions, environmental challenges, economic
systems, and consciousness.

There have been many explanations put forward for the collapse of
civilization. Some focus on historical examples, and others on general theory.
Muqaddimah influenced theories of the analysis, growth and decline
of the Islamic civilization.
He suggested repeated invasions from nomadic peoples limited development and
led to social collapse.
The decline of Rome was the natural and inevitable effect of
immoderate greatness. Prosperity ripened the principle of decay; the
cause of the destruction multiplied with the extent of conquest; and, as
soon as time or accident had removed the artificial supports, the
stupendous fabric yielded to the pressure of its own weight. The story
of the ruin is simple and obvious; and instead of inquiring why the
Roman Empire was destroyed, we should rather be surprised that it has
subsisted for so long.[Gibbon, Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire,

Peter Turchin in his
Historical Dynamics and
Andrey Korotayevet al. in their
Introduction to Social Macrodynamics, Secular Cycles, and Millennial
Trends suggest a number of mathematical models describing collapse
of agrarian civilizations. For example, the basic logic of Turchin's
"fiscal-demographic" model can be outlined as follows: during the initial
phase of a sociodemographic
cycle we observe relatively high levels of per capita production and
consumption, which leads not only to relatively high
population growth rates, but also to relatively high rates of surplus
production. As a result, during this phase the population can afford to pay
taxes without great problems, the taxes are quite easily collectible, and
the population growth is accompanied by the growth of state revenues. During
the intermediate phase, the increasing
overpopulation leads to the decrease of per capita production and
consumption levels, it becomes more and more difficult to collect taxes, and
state revenues stop growing, whereas the state expenditures grow due to the
growth of the population controlled by the state. As a result, during this
phase the state starts experiencing considerable fiscal problems. During the
final pre-collapse phases the overpopulation leads to further decrease of
per capita production, the surplus production further decreases, state
revenues shrink, but the state needs more and more resources to control the
growing (though with lower and lower rates) population. Eventually this
leads to famines, epidemics, state breakdown, and demographic and
civilization collapse (Peter Turchin. Historical Dynamics.
Princeton University Press, 2003:121–127).
Peter Heather argues in his book
The Fall of the Roman Empire: a New History of Rome and the Barbarians
that this civilization did not end for moral or economic reasons, but
because centuries of contact with barbarians across the frontier generated
its own nemesis by making them a much more sophisticated and dangerous
adversary. The fact that Rome needed to generate ever greater revenues to
equip and re-equip armies that were for the first time repeatedly defeated
in the field, led to the dismemberment of the Empire. Although this argument
is specific to Rome, it can also be applied to the Asiatic Empire of the
Egyptians, to the
Tang dynasties of China, to the Muslim
Abbasid Caliphate, and others.
Bryan Ward-Perkins, in his book The Fall of Rome and the End of
shows the real horrors associated with the collapse of a civilization for
the people who suffer its effects, unlike many revisionist historians who
downplay this. The collapse of complex society meant that even basic
plumbing disappeared from the continent for 1,000 years. Similar
Dark Age collapses are seen with the Late
Bronze Age collapse in the Eastern Mediterranean, the collapse of the
Easter Island and elsewhere.
Arthur Demarest argues in
Ancient Maya: The Rise and Fall of a Rainforest Civilization,
using a holistic perspective to the most recent evidence from archaeology,
paleoecology, and epigraphy, that no one explanation is sufficient but
that a series of erratic, complex events, including loss of soil fertility,
drought and rising levels of internal and external violence led to the
disintegration of the courts of Mayan kingdoms which began a spiral of
decline and decay. He argues that the collapse of the Maya has lessons for

agriculture and its spread in prehistory: the Fertile Crescent
(11,000 BP), the Yangtze and Yellow River basins (9000 BP) and the
New Guinea Highlands (9000–6000 BP), Central Mexico (5000–4000 BP),
Northern South America (5000–4000 BP), sub-Saharan Africa (5000–4000
BP, exact location unknown), eastern USA (4000–3000 BP).
The process of
sedentarization is first thought to have occurred around 12,000 BCE in the
of southwest Asia though other regions around the world soon followed. The
emergence of civilization is generally associated with the
Neolithic, or Agricultural Revolution, which occurred in various locations
between 8,000 and 5,000 BCE, specifically in southwestern/southern Asia,
northern/central Africa and Central America.
This revolution marked the beginning of stable agriculture and animal
domestication which enabled economies and cities to develop.
The following articles discuss the development of major early civilizations.
Jaspers, the German historical philosopher, proposed that the ancient
civilizations were affected greatly by an
in the period between 800 BCE–200 BCE during which a series of male sages,
prophets, religious reformers and philosophers, from China, India, Iran, Israel
and Greece, changed the direction of civilizations.
William H. McNeill proposed that this period of history was one in which
culture contact between previously separate civilizations saw the "closure of
oecumene", and led to accelerated social change from China to the
Mediterranean, associated with the spread of coinage, larger empires and new
religions. This view has recently been championed by Christopher Chase-Dunn and
world systems theorists.

The major reason that organic food has become so expensive is because
of a conspiracy of government intervention, the United Nations and the
best interests of Big Agri/Big Pharma. These groups, in all of their
benevolent wisdom, decided that a certification process was necessary.
This process is, at first glance, a money grab. Farmers most follow
specific regulations and pay exorbitant fees to get this certification
to be able to place a label on their food that says “Organic”. In fact,
commercial use of the term is legally restricted in many countries

Natural News article by Dr. Gregory D’Amato:
* All nutrients (vitamins and minerals) are to be
considered toxins/poisons and are to be removed from all food
because Codex prohibits the use of nutrients to “prevent, treat
or cure any condition or disease”
* All food (including organic) is to be irradiated,
removing all toxic nutrients from food (unless eaten locally and
* Nutrients allowed will be limited to a Positive
List developed by Codex which will include such beneficial
nutrients like Fluoride (3.8 mg daily) developed from
environmental waste. All other nutrients will be prohibited
nationally and internationally to all Codex-compliant countries
* All nutrients (e.g., CoQ10, Vitamins A, B, C, D,
Zinc and Magnesium) that have any positive health impact on the
body will be deemed illegal under Codex and are to be reduced to
amounts negligible to humans’ health .
* All advice on nutrition (including written online
or journal articles or oral advice to a friend, family member or
anyone) will be illegal.
* All dairy cows are to be treated with Monsanto’s
recombinant bovine growth hormone.
* All animals used for food are to be treated with potent
antibiotics and exogenous growth hormones.
* The reintroduction of deadly and carcinogenic
organic pesticides that in 1991, 176 countries (including the
U.S.) have banned worldwide including 7 of the 12 worst at the
Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pesticides (e.g.,
Hexachlorobenzene, Toxaphene, and Aldrin) will be allowed back

* Mandatory use of growth hormones and antibiotics
on all food herds, fish and flocks
* Worldwide implementation of unlabeled GMOs into
crops, animals, fish and trees.
As you can see, the governmental interference seems aimed at making
our food supply less healthy, instead of more healthy.
Part of the way they aim to force unhealthy modified food-like
substances on the populace is by making the price of pure organic food
out of reach for the average person. In a full frontal media assault,

Even more insidious are the armed raids being performed by the FDA

shackles, for nearly six months. You can see the timeline of these FDA

been driven out of business.

reach or unavailable for all of us? Although that appears to be the
objective of the Powers That Be, there are ways around it (in most
First of all – forget about “certified organic” as the pinnacle of
clean food. Look instead of “organically grown.” This won’t be on the
labels, as the FDA has appropriated that word but by definition a food
is organically grown if it is grown or processed without any synthetic
fertilizers or pesticides. At this point, the US and Canada both
prohibit foods containing GMOs from being labeled “organic” and
considering that most genetic modifications are to allow the crop to be
sprayed with greater abandon, you are likely to be safe. Some farmers
who use organic growing practices have opted out of the “certified

food should make it into our larder. I was able to make informed
decisions about my purchases this way. I also made my bulk purchase
of beef after making the acquaintance of a Mennonite farmer who used
no hormones or antibiotics for his cattle, and allowed them to graze
naturally in a field.
Join a local farm co-op or CSA. Co-ops and
(Community Supported Agriculture) generally encourage participation
from the recipients of the goodies and many will even allow you to
help out, hands on. (This is also a great way to learn more about
growing your own veggies!)
Call the company. If you don’t have a source of
wheat, for example, in your area, search for one that ships in
quantity. If you are able to buy directly from the grower, then you
can strike up an email or telephone conversation similar to the one
at the farmer’s market. Otherwise, if you are going through a third
party, address your questions to them and ask for information about
the grower. You may not be able to get in direct contact with the
farmer but a simple internet search can tell you whether GMO seeds
are common for a particular crop in that part of the world, what
pesticides are approved for use (and their effects) plus other
concerns you may have about the purity of your intended purchase.
It’s time consuming, but far better than blindly buying a package
off the shelf of your grocery store.
Grow your own. You can grow an amazing amount
of produce on a quarter acre city backyard and when you grow it
yourself, you are in control of the food from seed to plate. Forget
flowers – grow food. (In some places, unfortunately, city officials
have frowned on front yard vegetable gardens to the point of
bulldozing them – check your local ordinances and perhaps engage in
some stealth vegetable gardening that look more ornamental.) Even
growing salad greens and sprouting seeds and beans in your kitchen
windowsill will cut down your reliance on the grocery store
Buy seasonally. If you are purchasing from the
organic section in your local grocery store, you’ll pay the lowest
price for foods that are currently in season. So instead of looking
for Brussels sprouts in April and asparagus in December, plan your
menu around the items in season.
Preserve food. Along the same lines of buying
seasonally, buy in quantity. During tomato season, purchase a bushel
and spend a day or two in the kitchen canning spaghetti sauce and
salsa to brighten up a cold winter day with a taste of summer. Use
techniques like cold-cellaring for root vegetables and apples
purchased in the fall. Dehydrate organic produce that is on sale at
the grocery store. This way, you can look to your pantry first when
out of season items are desired.
Buy in bulk. Purchase items that you’ll use
often in bulk quantities. It’s a big outlay at the time of purchase,
but I recently spent $250 and got enough organic wheat and sugar to
last my family at least a year. The same items bought “as-needed” at
the grocery store would add up to nearly $700. Be sure to buy items
that you’ll use, though – there’s nothing sadder than watching food
spoil because no one wants to eat it. Also, repackage the food
carefully for long-term storage. (You can learn more
Focus more on organic growing practices than on a government stamp of
approval when selecting foods for your pantry. Just because something is
not labeled “organic” doesn’t mean it wasn’t organically grown. Educate
yourself about good, better and best options. This will allow you to
ignore the propaganda machine that is churning out disinformation and
scorn, because you will have done your own research and formed your own
opinions on what is safe and healthy.
How do you save money while still providing safe and healthy options
for your family?

On its face, the Army's labor program refers to inmates housed in
federal, state and local jails. The Army also cites various federal

Project for Emergency Support Services
Tuesday January 24, 12:03 pm ET
ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan. 24, 2006--KBR announced today
that the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS) U.S. Immigration
and Customs Enforcement (ICE) component has awarded KBR an
Indefinite Delivery/Indefinite Quantity (IDIQ) contingency contract
to support ICE facilities in the event of an emergency. KBR is the
construction subsidiary of Halliburton.
With a maximum total value of $385 million over a five-year term,
consisting of a one-year based period and four one-year
competitively awarded contract will be executed by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers,
Fort Worth District. KBR held the previous ICE contract from 2000
"We are especially gratified to be awarded this contract because it
builds on our extremely strong track record in the arena of
emergency operations support," said Bruce Stanski, executive vice
president, KBR Government and Infrastructure. "We look forward to
continuing the good work we have been doing to support our customer
whenever and wherever we are needed."
The contract, which is effective immediately, provides for
establishing temporary detention and processing capabilities to
augment existing ICE Detention and Removal Operations (DRO) Program
facilities in the event of an emergency influx of immigrants into
the U.S., or to support the rapid development of new programs. The
contingency support contract provides for planning and, if required,
initiation of specific engineering, construction and logistics
support tasks to establish, operate and maintain one or more
The contract may also provide migrant detention support to other
U.S. Government organizations in the event of an immigration
emergency, as well as the development of a plan to react to a
national emergency, such as a natural disaster. In the event of a
natural disaster, the contractor could be tasked with providing
housing for ICE personnel performing law enforcement functions in
support of relief efforts.
Today’s administration pushes for still broader law enforcement
authority. The Department of Homeland Security included the pursuit
of a “fugitive population of 400,000 illegal aliens ordered removed”
in its plan for Fiscal Year 2005. So far, more than 7,000 people
have been detained through this ten-year plan, called Endgame. The
new Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act augments its
border patrol force and its immigration detention capacity for each
fiscal year from 2006 to 2010. It also tightens restrictions on
bail, increasing the possibility of indefinite detention in alleged
terrorism cases, while broadening the definitions of terrorist

obstreperous detainees through use of corporal punishment.” A police
SWAT team quelled the uprising with tear gas. Twenty-five detainees
from Albania, India, Ghana, and elsewhere were removed to New

10-Year U.S. Strategic Plan For Detention Camps Revives Proposals
From Oliver North
News Analysis/Commentary, Peter Dale Scott,
New America Media, Feb 21, 2006
Editor's Note: A recently announced contract for a Halliburton
subsidiary to build immigrant detention facilities is part of a
longer-term Homeland Security plan titled ENDGAME, which sets as its
goal the removal of "all removable aliens" and "potential
terrorists." Scott is author of "Drugs, Oil, and War: The United
States in Afghanistan, Colombia, and Indochina" (Rowman &
Littlefield, 2003). He is completing a book on "The Road to 9/11."

The Halliburton subsidiary KBR (formerly Brown and Root) announced
on Jan. 24 that it had been awarded a $385 million contingency
contract by the Department of Homeland Security to build detention
camps. Two weeks later, on Feb. 6, Homeland Security Secretary
Michael Chertoff announced that the Fiscal Year 2007 federal budget
would allocate over $400 million to add 6,700 additional detention
beds (an increase of 32 percent over 2006). This $400 million
allocation is more than a four-fold increase over the FY 2006
budget, which provided only $90 million for the same purpose.
Both the contract and the budget allocation are in partial
fulfillment of an ambitious 10-year Homeland Security strategic
plan, code-named ENDGAME, authorized in 2003. According to a 49-page
Homeland Security document on the plan, ENDGAME expands "a mission
first articulated in the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798." Its goal
is the capability to "remove all removable aliens," including
"illegal economic migrants, aliens who have committed criminal acts,
asylum-seekers (required to be retained by law) or potential
There is no question that the Bush administration is under
considerable political pressure to increase the detentions of
illegal immigrants, especially from across the Mexican border.
Confrontations along the border are increasingly violent, often
involving the drug traffic. ...
It is relevant that in 2002, Attorney General John Ashcroft
announced his desire to see camps for U.S. citizens deemed to be
"enemy combatants." On Feb. 17 of this year, in a speech to the
Council on Foreign Relations, Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld
spoke of the harm being done to the country's security, not just by
the enemy, but also by what he called "news informers" who needed to
be combated in "a contest of wills." Two days earlier, citing
speeches critical of Bush by Al Gore, John Kerry, and Howard Dean,
conservative columnist Ben Shapiro called for "legislation to
prosecute such sedition."
Civilian Inmate Labor
The Army has established civilian inmate labor programs on twelve
installations since FY 89. Four resident programs (prison camps) are
at Fort Bliss, Fort Dix, and Camp Atterbury. Eight non-resident
(off-post) programs are at Parks Reserve Forces Training Area, Red
River Army Depot, Fort Lee, Fort McClellan, Fort Stewart, Fort
McPherson, Fort Indian Town Gap, and Anniston Army Depot. Fort Dix
has two resident programs (prison camps) using civilian inmates from
both federal and state penal systems. Camp Atterbury's resident
program uses state civilian inmates. These ten programs average an
annual net cost avoidance ranging from $263,000 to $3,500,000.
Inmate labor does not interfere with the installation's operation
and mission. Civilian inmates provide a source of labor to Army
installations to accomplish needed tasks that would not otherwise be
possible under current manning and funding constraints. Inmate labor
is intended to augment the Army's civilian and military work force
and contractor effort. Inmate labor does not displace an existing
in-house or contractor work force. The Army does not pay direct
labor costs for inmate labor but does incur equipment, materials,
supplies, transportation, and program administration costs to use
Services provided by inmates are defined by 18 USC 4125(a) and
include preservation and maintenance of grounds and facilities;
construction, repair and demolition of buildings; road repair;
custodial services; and transportation of debris to recycling
centers. Only minimum security inmates are available under the
Army's civilian inmate labor program. Army personnel do not provide
security supervision of inmate work details, but do monitor and
account for inmate presence or absence in an assigned work area.
Installation inmate labor programs are established via a memorandum
of agreement (MOA) between the installation and the local
correctional facility. The installation also develops an inmate
labor plan governing operation of inmate labor details on the
installation. The MOA and inmate labor plan are forwarded through
command channels to HQDA for approval.
OACSIM manages the civilian inmate labor program and is finishing a
regulation covering policy and procedures for civilian inmate labor.
Army's use of inmate labor is now limited to federal civilian
inmates. No federal statute allows military installations to accept
inmate labor from off-post state and local correctional facilities.
Numerous installations wish to use civilian inmates from state or
local correctional facilities off-post. A DOD Services working is
drafting a legislative proposal to gain support from labor unions,
the Department of Labor and the State Department before presenting
the revised proposal to Congressional staffers.
Section 1065 of the FY 95 Defense Authorization Act allows the Army
to conduct a demonstration project until October 1996. This
demonstration project tests the feasibility of using Army facilities
to provide employment training to nonviolent offenders in a State
penal system before their release from incarceration. The Army has
selected Forts Bragg, Hood, and Campbell as test sites. Functions
performed by state civilian inmates will be similar to those
performed by federal civilian inmates. State civilian inmate use
will be governed by the same policy applied to federal civilian
inmates. Such policy covers supervision, non-DOD employee
interference in inmate labor details, type of inmates allowed on
inmate labor details, and use of facilities and land. Each test site
is negotiating an MOA and inmate labor plan with their respective
Overall, commanders with civilian inmate labor programs have been
pleased with civilian inmate labor results. The Federal Bureau of
Prisons in particular is a cooperative partner and active
participant in the commander's base operations support mission.
Hungry people will do anything for food, which means that those who have
control over food can use it as leverage. In 1974, Henry Kissinger suggested
using food as a weapon to induce targeted population reduction in a previously
200-page report, National Security Study Memorandum
200: Implications of Worldwide Population Growth for U.S. Security and Overseas
Interests. The primary tactic to be applied is that food aid would be
withheld from developing nations until they submitted to birth control policies:
There is also some established precedent for taking account of family
planning performance in appraisal of assistance requirements by AID [U.S.
Agency for International Development] and consultative groups. Since
population growth is a major determinant of increases in food demand,
allocation of scarce PL 480 resources should take account of what steps a
country is taking in population control as well as food production. In these
sensitive relations, however, it is important in style as well as substance
to avoid the appearance of coercion.
So, food was to be used as just another method of imperial colonization to
force countries to conform their policies to those desired by the controllers.
Notably, this tactic only works as a blunt weapon on territories enduring a
severe economic collapse and with little resources for food production. Today,
however, it appears that the entire globe is receiving an arsenal of food bombs
as there appears to be a multifaceted attack on people’s access to food. In
other words, what has been an admitted tactic for nearly 40 years of controlling
food aid for regional population reduction has now grown more complex and
Because of massive corporate consolidation of agriculture, centrally
coordinated global regulations, a devalued commodity-dollar and unrestrained
commodity speculation, chemical and genetic modification, and real or
manipulated food shortages; there is indeed a war being waged — with food as the
primary weapon. Understand, this is a not purely a war on food, but rather a war
on the general population. Therefore, it is crucial to understand these tactics
in order to defend against them.
Here are six ways food is being used to wage war against the population:
1. Food inflation: Crippling food inflation is now affecting
every corner of the world with the poorest feeling the worst pangs. The U.N.
Food and Agriculture Organization’s (FAO) food price index increased by 3 points
to 234 points in June –
a 39% increase on the year. These increases are causing mass
starvation and rioting in many poor regions of the world, but they are also
beginning to punish the middle-class in the Industrialized nations. The price of
food is inflating primarily because of a devalued commodity-dollar from
excessive money printing and
Wall Street commodity speculation. Perhaps it’s more appropriate to
call it commodity manipulation, not speculation. As William Engdahl
recently pointed out: “The ability to manipulate the price of essential
foods worldwide at will — almost irrespective of today’s physical supply and
demand for grains — is quite recent….Up until the grain crisis of the mid-1970s
there was no single ‘world price’ for grain, the benchmark for the price of all
foods and food products.”
What fuels commodity speculation is not just the obvious decline of the dollar
and a flight to something tangible, but also genuine supply concerns based on a
variety of factors that cause crop shortages like extreme weather or disease.
Regardless of real or manipulated
food shortages, food prices will continue to rise because of
increased demand and an incrementally weaker dollar. Luckily, there are many
protect yourself from food inflation and the food war in general.
2. Shortages: Through supply controls, food shortages have been
used as a weapon to create regional conflicts, to encourage peacekeeping
missions, and as a foreign policy carrot — as clearly outlined in Kissinger’s
1974, Memorandum 200. The most recent examples can be found with the current and
ongoing negotiations with North Korea who perpetually holds a
nuclear gun to the West’s head in exchange for food. Somalia, who was food
self-sufficient until the 1970s, has become a “failed state” because of food
shortages. Significantly, the situation inSomalia
and other large-scale famine are usually caused by a manipulated
economic collapse. In fact, many have reported that the lack of food was an
underlying factor of the
Because of corporate consolidation of staple crops such as corn, soybeans, and
wheat — and the central control of food aid — it is now easy to manipulate food
shortages. But, clearly, there are also catastrophic weather events that destroy
production in entire regions such as the heat wave in Russia last summer that
caused them to
restrict wheat exports in what some referred to as food wars. Many
countries who had contracts with Russia were not happy, and their protectionist
move had global effects on the food prices. In other words, imminent food
shortages are typically a localized problem, but because the food system is so
interconnected, local problems now affect the global community.
3. Chemical Additives: Chemical additives, from pesticides to
preservatives, can only be viewed as a weapon in the depopulation agenda.
Clearly, laboratory-concocted chemicals were never meant for human consumption.
Therefore, they can only be attributed to an effort to deliberately and slowly
poison the population. Many food and drink toxins like fluoride, aspartame, or
monosodium glutamate (MSG) are now well-known to have negative health effects.
Other lab creations like high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) are also beginning to
prove very unhealthy with tests showing
mercury in corn syrup. Incidentally, we dare you to find any sweet
food that doesn’t contain either aspartame or HFCS. Even wholesome Campbell’s
Tomato soup has HFCS, as does Heinz ketchup — while nearly every candy or gum
contains aspartame. It’s estimated that the average American consumes 12
teaspoons of HFCS per day, while the younger population consumes nearly double
that. “Mercury is toxic in all its forms. Given how much high-fructose corn
syrup is consumed by children, it could be a significant additional source of
mercury never before considered,” said Dr. David Wallinga of the Agriculture and
Trade Policy whose study found about a third of brand-name foods with HFCS had
measurable amounts of mercury.
Pesticides fall into the chemical additive category — GM pesticides especially
(called Bt toxins). They are found in the blood stream of nearly all North
Americans, and even in
80% of their unborn babies. It is presumed these toxins are
acquired by eating genetically modified corn or soy, and from the livestock that
feed on it. A recent study proved that the chemical found in best-selling
glyphosate, causes birth defects among other ailments. We must
understand that although all of these toxins, and a host of others, are approved
for consumption by the FDA, it doesn’t make them safe. And even the ones that
have exotic names but have yet to be proven to have ill effects surely have a
cumulative impact on human health. They’re so pervasive that it seems impossible
to evade them, but there are still
ways to eat like a human.
4. Regulations: By restricting food freedom, regulatory
increase dependence on the Big Ag monopoly cartel that fully
controls the basic building blocks of food. Simply put, those who control the
corn, wheat, soybeans and rice, control all food, since all livestock and all
processed foods are dependent on those food sources. In America, and
increasingly around the world, this cartel places their cronies in government
like the USDA to weed out their competition through
excessive regulation. Furthermore, this restriction of food freedom is happening
in concert across the globe, precisely because it is a top-down globalist
initiative driven by international regulatory agencies such as the
World Trade Organization and the United Nations. It is a complex, interwoven
agenda that takes into account everything from
health safety to
land use rights in order to force independent food
producers to conform in ways that only benefit a global corporate structure.
Regulatory agencies are one of the primary weapons deployed against independent
5. Genetic Modification: There are many
reasons to avoid eating genetically modified food,from health concerns to
supporting a fundamentally evil food cartel. Genetically modified foods are the
path to monopolies over human life through patented technology and environmental
destruction by chemical-heavy
monoculture practices. GMOs are so pervasive in the United States
that it is estimated that 70% of the average American diet contains them. Many
European countries, and other regions, have rejected GMOs. Hungary recently
destroyed illegal GM corn crops and plans to make distributing
seeds a felony offense. However, because of corporate/political pressure, most
resistant countries are being forced to adopt them. All of this despite the fact
infection and contamination are proven effects of transgenic
plants. Meanwhile, the control is being implemented under convoluted patent
laws, where the mutation itself signifies originality and control over the
natural organism it imitates.
6. The Weather: Weather undeniably affects
food access and food costs. One glance at
maps across the globe reveals that food production areas
are being especially hard hit, and we are seeing prices rise accordingly. These
natural events can be exploited both by speculators and governments. However,
with the introduction of weather modification,
invested in by those such as Bill Gates and openly promoted
elite globalist think tanks, concerns have been raised over
the possibility that governments could use weather as a deliberate weapon to
create food wars. Accusations have
already been leveled charging exactly that. While some
might dismiss the various possibilities of “steering the weather” for malevolent
purposes as conspiracy, it is much more difficult to ignore the 1996 document
presented to the Air Force titled
Owning the Weather 2025 (PDF), which explicitly states as a
heading on page 10: Applying Weather-modification to Military Operations.
One key section states that weather control could be virtual, as well as
Offensive abilities could provide spoofing options to create virtual
weather in the enemy’s sensory and information systems, making it more
likely for them to make decisions producing results of our choosing rather
than theirs. It would also allow for the capability to mask or disguise our
Also key to the feasibility of such a system is the ability to model the
extremely complex nonlinear system of global weather in ways that can
accurately predict the outcome of changes in the influencing variables.
Conceivably, with enough lead time and the right conditions, you could get
This would certainly be the ultimate endgame for anyone wishing to use food
as a weapon of control and profit. This possibility should not be easily
dismissed, but rather it warrants open-minded investigation and research.
As we can see, food control is full spectrum, with wars being declared on the
individual, states, and sovereign nations simultaneously. Food controllers
utilize health, politics, and economics to integrate their agenda. Only full
spectrum solutions can be employed as protection. There is much hope to be
alternative markets, barter systems, and local co-ops. We
welcome your thoughts in the comments section below about other creative ideas
we can implement to preserve our independence.
