Vagina Monologues

Despite its unique and provocative title, The Vagina Monologues” is much more than a highly acclaimed stage production. It’s also a social movement and a testament to the violence experienced by women and girls globally. “The Vagina Monologues,” directed by Jane Sibbett with a guest appearance by Roseanne Barr and 22 women actors, will run Feb. 8 and 9 at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea.

“Our cast is comprised of women who not only have talent, but also have the heart to be in this,” said Sibbett. “We also have two 16-year-olds who are participating, and who are on fire for helping. It’s nice to have some young women be a part of this.”

Eve Ensler, an author, playwright, professor and activist, wrote the “The Vagina Monologues” book in 1994 after conducting more than 200 interviews with a vast array of women – from urban New York City to remote African villages. The book was so powerful that Ensler adapted it for the stage, where it debuted off-Broadway in 1999 at the Westside Theatre. Since then, it has been translated into 48 languages and performed in more than 140 countries. Yet, despite these worldwide advances, saying the word “vagina” still makes many people uncomfortable 15 years later.

Performed for the first time in Kahilu Theatre last year, “The Vagina Monologues” runs as a series of soliloquies from different women on their struggles and life experiences with their sexuality. Some of the stories are funny and many are tragic, depending on the issue — rape, sex, menstruation, love – are just a few of the topics. The play raises awareness of the serious and often fatal struggles that women and girls face. It is a confirmation of how complicated, and often devalued, women’s experiences are within society.

“We have such a great cast that knows how to do this really well,” Sibbett said. “We’ve put a lot of humor into it too, which is a good balance. Because of the humor, and because of the mixed media I have included, I think people will enjoy it. I feel the humor is so key and I’m excited that we have a cast that is going to carry it off.”

Ensler adds to the play annually, connecting the dialogue to current issues.

“There are two new monologues this year and some of the old ones are still there,” said Sibbett, who also directed last year’s production.

Addressing domestic violence on Hawaii Island

“The Vagina Monologues” provides an artistic medium to raise awareness about these serious issues through humor, solidarity, and well…vaginas. The Family Violence Prevention Fund estimates that one in three women will face sexual or physical assault in her lifetime.

Hawai’i Island is not immune to the devastating effects of violence against women. Hawaii County Prosecuting Attorney Mitch Roth said, “Domestic Violence is a root problem to much of the crime and other negative social consequences on Hawai’i island. Our office is very active in the education of victims and others in the community – proactively reaching out to others in government and social services to improve the systems dealing with domestic violence – and most importantly, supporting programs that puts an end to the circle of violence.”

The play is described as a celebration of women and a celebration of the vagina. It’s also a dark reminder of women’s place in society—whether in developed countries like the United States, or in parts of the world like Central Africa, the Middle East, Eastern Asia and parts of Europe where women are raped, beaten, prostituted, murdered, and permanently immobilized by the fear that is instilled in them from childhood.

Yisa Var is one of the actresses in this year’s production and feels it’s imperative that we talk to our children about the realities of violence against women in hopes of breaking the cycle.

“Even if someone has not experienced abuse themselves, they will still connect to many themes throughout the show,” said Var. “I have an 11-year-old son, and although the show is recommended for a little older audience, I feel as a parent that it is imperative that my child learn the truth— good and bad. The stories in the ‘Monologues’ may go a little above his head, but I am hopeful that it will start a dialogue and help him to feel comfortable talking about sexuality and how to love someone without hurting them. It is a step toward breaking the cycle to put forth into the world strong, but sensitive, empathetic and loving young men. To do that, they need the knowledge. ‘The Vagina Monologues’ offers that and so much more.”

The play is full of powerful narratives that make a statement about the prevalence and reality of violence against women around the world. Participants acknowledge that saying the word ‘vagina’ is not going to end the war on women, but hope that it will raise awareness of harsh realities that many women face on a daily basis.

According to Ensler in her book, “I say ‘vagina’ because I have read the statistics, and bad things are happening to women’s vaginas everywhere: 500,000 women are raped every year in the United States; 100 million women have been genitally mutilated worldwide. Saying ‘vagina’ is the first step in acknowledging our authentic selves.”

Sibbett is just as passionate about empowering women to reclaim their power over their bodies and themselves.

“For the women who’ve experienced violence, I want them to know that they’re not alone. It’s a club that none of us wish we were a part of, but now that we are, I want them to know that they have a lot of support,” she said. “There are a lot of strong women that come from this. We can unite together and make a difference. “

“The more voices we get pulling together, especially on this island, the better.” She said. “I want people to know that there are resources for them, and that there are many other wonderful women that are going through this situation that they wouldn’t even suspect. Once we start putting our voices together we really can start making some changes.”

In addition to Barr and Sibbett, the cast of this year’s monologues includes Sara Beery Hagen, Bonnie Cherni, Sophie Dommer, Beth Dunnington, Rep. Cindy Evans, Ronja Giesser, Harmony Graziano, Barbara Harris, Isabel Kalaau-Catrett, Rona Lee, Rani Moore, Robin O’Hara, Naomi Peters, Councilwoman Valerie Poindexter, Melinda Polet, Jan Rae, Madeline Schatz, Mary Sharma, Shanon Sidell, Maia Tarnas, Corine Tilson, Yisa Var, and Tess Yong.

Ensler’s work has inspired the social justice movement known as V-Day, with the goal to end violence against girls and women. It includes the worldwide annual production of “The Vagina Monologues.”

Performances of The Vagina Monologues and the V-day movement have raised more nearly 100 million dollars worldwide, and benefited numerous community-based programs dedicated to anti-violence causes.

“It’s important to raise money for needed programs on the Big Island and to celebrate the great writing of Eve Ensler, a revolutionary force for good,” said Roseanne Barr.

“Regardless of whether or not you’ve been touched by violence, I invite everyone to come to the show so we can all find our voices all together,” said Sibbett. “This has got to stop. It’s got to happen by us coming together as a community. It’s time for peace. We all deserve our divine right to choose happiness. None of us need to submit to this kind of violence.”

The Vagina Monologues shows at 7 p.m. on Feb. 8, and 2 p.m. on Feb. 9. Tickets are $10, $15, and $20 and can be purchased on line at kahilutheatre.org or by calling 1-808-885-6868. All profits will benefit women and families affected by violence on Hawaii Island.

MY SOTU REMARKS

State of the Union of the Divided States of America where gridlock is the method by which the rich get richer and the poor get poorer, that premise being the only goal of Capitalism.’

 

My view of the divided states of America:

 

Gridlock is a strategy of both parties not to get things done-except the most important work that continues with or without gov-the rich getting richer poor getting poorer, there is NO crises in that area of economics, and never will be. But then gov. is not supposed to be run like a business, for profit! LOL LOL now that is too silly. Really!

You and the First lady have two highly intelligent daughters, Mr. President. I hope that opportunities for women grow by the time they move into adulthood. Women comprise 53% of our nation’s population, but a glaring example of the residue of our institutionalized sexism is The Senate. Of 100 Senators in the world’s most powerful Legislative body – just 20 are women. The math does itself, Sir. 53% of our people are female – while just 20% of the Senate reflects that number.

 

HI, this is Roseanne Barr, the de facto president of the American People, and on behalf of Americans whom no one but myself speaks for, apparently, I was the only candidate who raised no money and spent no money, other than my own, to get onto the ballot in three states – three critical states, California, Colorado and Florida. I finished fifth in the race of 57! I got over 80k votes in 3 states-at a flat cost of $1 per vote! That was a flattering thing for me, but in the larger sphere, it was a real victory for the American people, still living dangerously free, daring to risk their fortunes and their lives to, as I named it: #occupytheballot.

We still have a free country, but our freedoms are at great risk, here and now. Do the American people really believe in democracy, or have they lost all faith in it due to the way it seems to work under what feels more and more like a crypto-fascist, wildcat capitalist accident-waiting-to-happen!?!

The sick and selfish brand of Capitalism being pushed from the Right is basically the Law of the jungle in a suit and tie. The Golden Rule has indeed been twisted to mean: “The man with the gold RULES!” Thanks to the ridiculous Citizens United ruling, it’s time to take the word bribery out of the lexicon; the money is on the table and big favors are required in return for the huge campaign contributions it takes to run for office. Our legislature is therefore, for sale, its members the Prostitute Class.

 

Before anyone starts to think I’m going to use my time here to just spout slogans, opinions or partisan propaganda, I’d like to go straight to some numbers – numbers which speak loud and clear, numbers no one can argue with – numbers, by the way, which come from sources no less establishment than The Federal Reserve, The US Census Bureau, and The Internal Revenue Service. 

 

Let’s let the numbers talk:

 

The Average American family’s savings acct. balance  = $3,800.

The percentage of families with NO savings. =  25%

Average American family’s household debt = $117,000.

Average American household annual income = $43,000

These last two statistics translate into a grim scenario. The average American  breadwinners will need to work for three years to bring themselves “UP to” a ‘free & clear’ version of BROKE!

 

Let’s get back to the numbers: The percentage of American adults with an emergency fund to fall back on = 38%

 

76% of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.

 

These hard and unsettling facts ALL come under the heading of Economics. It’s not the president’s OR the Government’s job to tell people how much to spend or save or anything else connected with their personal finances…BUT, it IS their job to tell corporate citizens that unless they pay their workers a living wage, those workers have no choice but to turn to Gov’t. programs that aid the poor.

WalMart, for example, is often held up as a great American success story and a shining example of capitalism at its finest. WalMart, whose shelves are lined with goods made by Chinese workers for near-slave wages, COSTS American taxpayers because so many of their employees need food stamps, and other forms of Public Assistance. By using these business practices The Walton family, alone, has amassed as much wealth as the bottom 40% of Americans!

We know the President gets it; he has called the widening gap in income disparity “the defining challenge of our time,” He said this in a speech at an event hosted by the Center for American Progress, a pro-Obama think tank. He said, “It drives everything I do in this office.”

Okay, Mr. Obama. Where are we driving? I know where I would drive us, because I look for solutions, and I would not let obstructionists stop me, obstructionists who pretend to be about responsibility but really just serve their greedy billionaire patrons. We MUST raise the minimum wage! The absurd claims that doing so will hurt employers and the economy are just that – absurd. Pay hard-working people more money and they will spend that money and boost the economy.

 

The Walmart example is a prime one but it’s not the only one. Since 1979 — the year President Obama graduated from high school -the size of the American economy has doubled, but the top 10% of people have half the nation’s income. Can you say redistribution of wealth, upwards, boys and girls?

Obama said the average CEO now makes 273 times the income of the average worker! Stagnant incomes for the middle class hurt the ability of Americans to move to better jobs, President Obama said. He also said It also breaks down social cohesion as more Americans come to think that the system is rigged against them. Well, why WOULDN’T THEY THINK THAT? They aren’t stupid-the facts are in and the facts are this system is not broken at all, it’s fixed. The fix is in.

 

 

As tough as things have gotten for working people, especially the working poor, who are also being told things will be getting even tougher, and to tighten their belts and accept cuts in Government programs that aid their families, as their tax money goes bail out FAT CAT WALL STREET BOSSES! They are told to tighten their belts by men like Christie! Time to take the word ridiculous hypocracy out of the lexicon too. Its also time to extend protection in the work place to all glbtq citizens of this country. The pres can take steps to help pass enda.

Speaking of solutions: I know ONE costly Government program that should have been cut years ago: The bogus War on Drugs! Conservatives, particularly, push to cut Unemployment benefit extensions, food stamps and other programs that millions of citizens rely on, Republicans particularly, never tire of complaining about the cost of Gov’t. health care, but you don’t hear any complaining about the 51 billion dollars a year, EVERY year, for decade after decade, on a ridiculous failure that has made us the world’s biggest jailer.

Land of the free? Really? We lock up more of our people than any country on Earth, and far too many of those incarcerated at huge expense to the taxpayer are in prison for non-violent drug offenses! In fact, most for POT! As I said in my campaign for common sense Presidency, Legalization is the fastest way to take back our government from fat cat ‘independent contractors of the pentagon’ who profit every time a teen goes to jail for pot and is used to work for corporations at 28cents per hour! 85% of all house paint sold in US was manufactured by prison labor in the USA! Pot =big bucks for fat cat prison owning war machine profiteers, who are coincidentally the same ppl we owe the deficit to! LOL! What a joke, citizens!

We’ve spent over a trillion dollars after 40 years of this ill-advised policy – a fraction of which would have replenished full Social Security benefits for just thatFORTY YEARS! “War on Drugs?” Let’s take a look at Colorado – and then move into the 21st Century! Let’s scrap the War on Drugs and reap the benefits in tax revenues and savings on costs related to law enforcement and imprisonment. Privatizing prisons is a dangerous trend that creates profit-driven incentive to locking up even more Americans; let’s give that a hard look.

 

While we’re talking about the costs of imprisonment, Let’s close Guantanamo!
This January marks 12 years of indefinite lockup without trials or even charges at the U.S. prison at Guantanamo, and five years since President Barack Obama signed the executive order to shut it down. Congress granted the president’s request to make it easier to transfer prisoners out of Guantanamo; Guantanamo is a travesty that sends the world the wrong message about what America is supposed to stand for. Keep your promise, Mr.President, silence those who call u a liar, an enabler of Empire: SHUT IT DOWN!

Let’s keep talking about solutions: Where can we find money we could use instead of taking it from essential programs that strengthen that social cohesion the President spoke of? More than half a century ago, REPUBLICAN President Dwight Eisenhower, in his farewell address, looked us in the eye and gave us a grave warning about the Military Industrial Complex.

Since that time, the military budget has ballooned steadily, and today, we spend more than all the nations on earth, combined, on Military concerns. We’re raising a generation of young people who’ve never known a time when America wasn’t waging wars in two distant nations, while occupying more than a thousand military bases that dot the globe. Who pays the bills? The taxpayer! Let’s pull back the sprawling PrisonMilitaryMediaDrugLordIndustrialComplesofindependentcontracts4Empire, stop sweetheart deals to weapons merchants and let’s convert jobs in that industry to jobs in clean energy alternatives and jobs related to replacing our crumbling infrastructure, water harvesting, purifying and technological theaters of peace wherein we figure out how to get the food to the hungry.  I congratulate Utah my home state in moving to provide Medicaid for all citizens of the state-that is what should happen, instead of give aways to the insurance corporations, but we are told to ‘be thankful’ since that is better than nothing.

A scandal-weary nation was shocked and disgusted by disclosures of warrantless wiretapping and countless abuses by the NSA. Surely the National SECURITY Agency should be able to keep us secure without invading average Americans’ privacy. By denying or downplaying those abuses it doesn’t seem like you’re squaring with us, Mr. President. Common sense forces us to ask: would a whistle-blower like Edward Snowdon risk his freedom, livelihood and maybe even life and limb IF he didn’t have real abuses to expose? Why are you making it so tough for whistleblowers? It’s now thirty years since George Orwell’s chillingly prophetic 1984- Let’s not add to American’s growing list of concerns the thought that their own Government is spying on them without probable cause.

 

Getting back to bread-and-butter issues and heading toward my summation, I’d like to continue to speak for many Americans growing increasingly wary and disheartened as they view their future and their childrens’ futures. We’re watching our alleged representatives in Government say we can’t extend unemployment benefits, that we need to cut Gov’t. programs that benefit the neediest Americans, that we need to cut spending, to institute austerity and become a less kinder and gentler America – and yet we watched both parties, under a Republican President, hand over the biggest Welfare check in history to investment bankers who had run their businesses into the ground! Republicans voted to give welfare to Wall Street-then claimed that was not ‘socialism’ –‘we are only against the government helping poor mothers/fathers and their kids, not those considered ‘too big to fail.’

WE should educate ourselves and our fellow citizens as to the actions of The Federal Reserve by holding our money and banking system, itself, up to the light of intense scrutiny, AND we MUST reinstate the Glass Steagal Act and rein in the reckless, genocidal practices of greedy Wall St. investment bankers.

I say that the State of The Union is troubling, its citizens divided,prevented from doing little but regurgitating The Blather of the political system of Gridlock, directed by white male radio hosts stoked daily to take it out on their neighbors who look a little bit different, but aren’t really different at all, instead of Wall St. Mr. President, tear down that wall!  We must all ask are the American people too big to fail? We’re going to find out, Mr. President AND my fellow-sister Americans. We’re going to find out soon if banks will allow us to have access to our own savings, bank accounts, and collateral. In conclusion, I say, G-d Help the United state of America. Thank u.

A Eulogy of Love by Kevin D. Annett

On Extinction Level Events, and other abstractions: A Eulogy of Love

by Kevin D. Annett

Nobody can think globally, anymore than one can seriously imagine one’s own death. And so when Fukushima exploded three years ago and as our skies and oceans became laced with toxicity, none of it seemed as real as the trivialities of my life.

 

Basically, I tried not to think about what lay across the waters. And so even now, as we are being slowly radiated to death in what has become an obvious Extinction Level Event, our planetary fate remains abstract to ourselves: more important than the trivialities, of course, but not more real. And being human, I guess I’m not unusual in that way.

 

But as with the advance of old age and mortality in general, our creeping global megadeath is clearly an unshakeable fact that our timid hearts and minds must somehow encompass, before the ending. Even if there is no way out for any of us mammals and fishes, the fact will inevitably be confronted, one way or another.

 

Heroism leaps to mind, of course. “If we are to die, let it be like men”, or perhaps, “Somehow we must act, so that posterity will know that not all of us were complicit with the crime”. Of course, if we do indeed lack any chance of human posterity, perhaps that second quote doesn’t fit. But the sentiment is the right one.

 

Are we being punished for our enormous crimes? Absolutely, if punishment is tantamount to a simple logical consequence. Is some angry deity or unknowable agency engineering our demise as a big cosmic retribution for our naughtiness? I doubt it. That kind of pettiness seems only too human, and surely we’ve all had enough of projecting our own shadow.

 

A logical consequence. We rely on a deadly technology we never really understood, we use our garden earth as a dumping ground for all our unnatural waste, and we tear ourselves and each other to pieces, and yes, one day, it will all turn around and chew us up. It’s happening as we breathe, or more specifically, as we breathe in all those unseen, glowing plutonium atoms.

 

No sermon is intended. It’s probably too late for any of that, anyway, and besides, I’ve done enough funerals to know that it isn’t words that mourners need.

 

But since we’re on the subject, I’ve realized recently that much of what I have done for so many years has come down to being a eulogist at the funeral of my own culture; and now, it seems, of my own species.

 

Back in the old country, my ancestors called the practice “keening”, or the Caoinaimh, “the beautiful remembering”, which is what you’d do at the passing of a great Irish chieftain or bard: recount in song and story the tale of his life, to sum it up and encourage the hovering soul to pass on to the next world. The Remembering went on for three days, normally, while the relatives all got drunk.

 

In my sunny moments, I like to think that such is the fate of our people: simply, a passing on through a good remembering, amidst much revelry. But the Void tends to stare back at me, even in such moments, with its inscrutable question mark.

 

Here in the West, we don’t know anything about death and passing, except how to fear it. But the best moments for me have come at deathbeds and funerals, simply because the totality is suddenly there, as well as a deep and very sweet cherishing of every breath we the living can still draw.

 

After my blacklisting by the church, I was still on call at one Vancouver mortuary where the local manager knew of my troubles and didn’t mind. And knowing my precarious situation, the good fellow used to pass on to me as much work as he could, especially those funerals that none of the other clergy wanted to touch.

 

A lot of those were what’s called Public Trustee Funerals, where some poor sod in a rooming house or shitty hotel somewhere dies “intestate” and alone. Then just me and the manager and the solitary corpse would do the entire final service ourselves, as my words and the canned, sombre music and perhaps even a sympathetic remembrance somewhere would say goodbye to an entire life.

 

Those farewells felt like the most important ones I ever did, and not just because the abandoned guy in the box deserved some respect at his final passing. Something else was always present then that wasn’t around when the place was crammed full of people. I could feel that “something” as tangibly as my aching love for my own daughters, but it was just as enigmatic. It came and went. And it was everything.

 

I knew at those lonely moments that there is indeed a soul, and it reposes not in our brief mortal coils but throughout and beyond us, pointing always to that alone which is real.

 

Perhaps it’s the same way when an entire people die: none of the noise and bustle will matter, ultimately. Only that presence will matter; and through it, the real world.

 

My own piece of that big soul does assure me, now and then, that our present moment in history, like all moments, is just part of the road along which we are learning, or maybe just treading. Death hangs over us these days wherever we are, and is closing off our options quicker than we are allowed to realize: and the last people we should turn to are those who pretend they’re in charge.

 

For this is a reckoning time. And a time for the good remembering.

Intelligence chatter abuzz with plans for chemical weapons attack on Sochi Olympics

January 22-23, 2014 – Intelligence chatter abuzz with plans tfor chemical weapons attack on Sochi Olympics


WMR is receiving dire warnings from multiple intelligence sources that all have a common theme: that Saudi intelligence chief Prince Bandar bin Sultan is following through on his threat to have Saudi-backed Salafists inside Russia launch a terrorist attack on the Winter Olympiad in Sochi because Russian President Vladimit Putin failed to withdraw his support for Syrian President Bashar al Assad. The Winter Games are scheduled to open on February 7.

Two men, identified only as “Suleiman” and “Abdulrakhman” and claiming to be with a Dagestani-based terrorist group called “Vilayat Dagestan” appeared on a 49-minute long video distributed on the Internet issuing a stark warning to Russia and all the athletes and visitors who will be arriving for the Olympics in Sochi. The two men, who Vilayat Dagestan claimed were the suicide bombers who launched two deadly attacks on public transportation targets in Volgograd last month, were said to be the suicide bombers who died in that attack. One of the two men in the video pushes a button attached to what is believed to be a mock explosive device.

Sitting in front of a black and white flag with Arabic writing often associated with Al Qaeda and Saudi-backed terrorist groups in Syria, the two men issue the following statement: “We have prepared a present for you — for you — [Putin] and all those tourists who will come over.”

The two men add, “If you hold these Olympics, we will give you a present for the innocent Muslim blood being spilled all around the world: in Afghanistan, in Somalia, in Syria . . .”

The “present,” according to WMR’s sources, is one or more chemical weapons bombs, possibly containing sarin nerve gas stolen by Al Qaeda affiliates from Libyan stockpiles after the overthrow of Colonel Muammar Qaddafi’s government. Those stockpiles of sarin were transferred by Saudi intelligence to Syrian rebels who used them in an attack in Al Ghouta, outside of Damascus, last year and to Chechen and Dagestani terrorists who now plan to use them during one or more Winter Olympics venues in Sochi, including the opening ceremonies.

On July 31, 2013, Bandar told Putin at a meeting in Moscow that if Putin pulled support for Assad, Saudi Arabia would agree to rein in Islamist terrorists from attacking Sochi. Bandar reportedly said, “I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics in the city of Sochi on the Black Sea next year. The Chechen groups that threatenc_330_235_16777215_0___images_stories_edim_01_Bander99.jpg

the security of the games are controlled by us.” Putin became enraged with Bandar, told him Russia has known for years of Saudi support for terrorist attacks around the world, including in Russia, and abruptly ended the meeting with the man whose links with the Bush political family are so close, he is known as “Bandar Bush.”

The Libyan chemical weapons believed to have been smuggled into Russia are also said to have been handed over to Vilayat Dagestan by a Saudi-backed Iraqi Salafist terrorist group called Ansar al-Sunna. The self-declared leader of an Islamic state in the Caucasus region, Doku Umarov, threatened to attack the Sochi Olympics last July. However, last week, Chechen president Ramzan Kadyrov, claimed that Russian security forces had killed Umarov, although no corpse of the terrorist leader was produced by Russian or Chechen authorities.

Because of the nature of the threat, Russia has reversed course and agreed to accept U.S. military assistance during the Olympic Games. The deal worked out between U.S. chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff General Martin Dempsey and Russian armed forces chief General Valery Gerasimov will provide counter-improvised explosive device (IED) and associated radio frequency jamming technology to Russian security forces. Russia has also reportedly agreed to allow a U.S. Navy destroyer and amphibious vessel to patrol closer to Sochi waters in the Black Sea to assist in security and/or evacuation operations. The U.S. Navy says the ships will be available ”for all manner of contingencies.”

Russian authorities in Sochi are reportedly on the lookout for a 22-year old Dagestani widow named Ruzanna Ibragrimova. Her husband was a Salafist terrorist killed by Russian security forces last year. Russian authorities have been distributing “wanted” posters of Ibragimova throughout Sochi. It is believed that the woman, one of a number of  militant widows dubbed “black widows” by counter-terrorism officials in Russia and abroad, sneaked past several cordons of Russian security perimeters and may now be in Sochi hiding. WMR’s sources believe the widow may be carrying one or more chemical weapon devices to be detonated during the Olympics. The realization that chemical weapons may have been smuggled into Sochi, courtesy of Saudi intelligence, is what caused Dempsey and Gerasimov to make hasty preparations for U.S. military assistance at their previously-scheduled meeting in Brussels.

On a down note, WMR has also learned that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and its Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have arranged for a supply of body bags to transport U.S. victims from Sochi to Dover Air Force Base in Delaware in the event of a terrorist chemical attack. In addition, the U.S. European Command also has plans to evacuate Americans and other visitors from Sochi in the event of a successful terrorist operation. C-17 transport aircraft will be on stand-by at Ramstein Air Force Base in Germany.

The potential for a chemical weapons terror attack in Sochi has been known by worldwide intelligence agencies for quite some time. However, rather than warn of this threat, a number of world leaders cynically used their opposition to Russia’s policy on homosexual advocacy to decide to boycott the opening ceremonies. Among those leaders who hid behind the lavender curtain rather than reveal the actual reason for their absence — the threat posed by the Saudis to the Sochi games — are U.S. President Barack Obama, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, German President Joachim Gauck and Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister David Cameron, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, French President Francois Hollande, Polish President Bronislaw Komorowski, and European Justice and Fundamental Rights Commissioner Viviane Reding.

Chinese President Xi Jinping, Netherlands Prime Minister Mark Rutte and King Willem-Alexander, Norwegian King Harald and Prime Minister Erna Solberg, and Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev are scheduled attend the ceremonies.

Some leaders are only planning on attending the closing ceremonies only. These include Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Bulgarian PresidentRossen Plevneliev. Bulgarian Prime Minister Plamen Oresharski will attend the opening ceremonies.

The decision by Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu to reject an invitation from Putin to attend the Sochi opening ceremonies is noteworthy. Putin and Netanyahu are on better speaking terms with one another than is the case with Putin and Obama. Although Putin and Netanyahu are worlds apart on issues like Syria and Iran, they mutually recognize the importance of business ties between Russian Jews living in Israel and their compatriots in Russia. Netanyahu’s rejection of Putin’s invitation may have arisen from advance knowledge of Saudi plans for an attack on the Winter Games. Israel and Saudi Arabia have forged close intelligence and military links owing to their common cause against Iran and Assad’s government in Syria.

The national teams of two countries whose leaders are boycotting Sochi, the United States and Germany, received emails in Russian warning that their teams would be attacked in Sochi. Other teams receiving the emails were those of Italy, Hungary, Slovakia, and Slovenia. The emails were deemed a hoax by International Olympic Committee officials.

According to WMR’s sources inside the DHS and FEMA, contingency plans for Sochi are now dealing with the worst possible scenario — a terrorist chemical attack with massive casualties.

ITCCS Urgent Action Update on “Thought Crime” Victim in England:

ITCCS member David Compan is re-arrested and jailed in a London mental hospital, and held without charges for posting Common Law verdicts

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NE8QBUiVslc

(video of David’s first arrest and incarceration at Charing Cross hospital)

London, UK: January 22, 10 pm GMT

Targeted under England’s draconian “thought crime” laws for posting the verdicts of the International Common Law Court of Justice, ITCCS member David Compan has been re-arrested and incarcerated without charges for one month at the Park Royal Mental Health Centre in London.

“They’re holding him because he won’t tell them where he got the common law proclamations from. They’re ‘assessing’ him for one month but there’s no charge against him” described ITCCS organizer Rhianne Mockridge from Coventry.

Rhianne, David and others have made local headlines in England after they occupied a Catholic church in Coventry and posted the citizen arrest warrants against former Pope Benedict, Queen Elizabeth and other officials who were found guilty of crimes against humanity last February. (seewww.itccs.org)

David Compan is the second high profile ITCCS activist to be imprisoned without charges since the common law court verdict. Steve Finney of Kitchener, Ontario was arrested without cause and held in prison for three days last October until released by protests from around the world.

The ITCCS Central Office in Brussels calls on its British members and supporters to secure David Compan’s immediate release by mounting protests and occupations at Park Royal Mental Health Centre and at British diplomatic offices in other countries.

Contact the hospital and demand David’s release, at:

Subject: The Manipulation of NATO by Saudi Arabia

 

To NATO Forces:

The time has come for a strategic review of the current mission and polices of NATO and the mass manipulation of Saudi Arabia against NATO interests. In light of the recent IMF Report on the collapse of the Western Financial System, it’s time for NATO to move beyond mere “war avoidance” and have a larger voice in “economic integration”.

I will begin this letter with these questions:

1.       Is Saudi Arabia led by Prince Bandar Sultan, responsible for terrorist attacks on the United States on 9/11/2001?

2.       Is Saudi Arabia responsible for the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon?

3.       Is Saudi Arabia responsible for the terrorist attacks against Volvograd Russia?

4.       Is Saudi Arabia operating under the geo political terrorist policy of Al-Yamamah oil for                arms deal?

5.  How dumb does Saudi Arabia think The Citizens of The United States are?

Based on these following 4 facts the Military and Strategic Leadership of NATO must take the following steps to stop World War 3 instigated by the Queen of England, Saudi Arabia, and the Jabotinsky dominated faction of the Likud government in Israel.  NATO was a creation of Winston Churchill. Churchill’s aim was to turn Russia (The United States ally during WW2) into a permanent cold war enemy based on religious fanaticism  and geo political chaos. Therefore, NATO and its allies is not a sovereign entity rather it is a puppet enforcer of the City of London, The House of Windsor and the Saudi Royal Family. Based on this fact it’s incumbent on the military leadership to stop listening and obeying the prostituted classes of civilian leadership, who only whore for money with no foresight on the consequences of their policies. (A perfect example of this is Hollande in France: more interested in sexual escapades than good governance).

NATO security in the Macro sense is threatened by none other than Saudi Arabia and its financial support for the radical Whabbism Terrorist funded by dirty oil money. It only makes logical sense that NATO monitor and target all activities of Saudi Prince Bandar and prevent him from causing anymore terrorism. NATO is being played by Saudi Arabia, a consistent game of “I pretend to chase you and you pretend to chase me”.

We are at a point in history where this game can no longer be played without the use of nuclear weapons and planetary destruction. The Western Anglo Dutch Financial System is in a state of collapse. This is an Empirical Fact. Therefore, the leadership of NATO must change its strategic objectives and redefine its enemies. The enemies of NATO are NOT Russia, Iran, China and Lebanon. The enemies of NATO based on its own charter are absolutely defined as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and the Royal Class of the Anglo Dutch Empire. The prostitutes in the political class will attempt to sabotage the Iranian Negotiations and the Geneva 2 talks.

Is it indeed time for the Military and Strategic Leadership to step forward and force a change in policy over the civilian leadership?

Land Rights and Human Rights on Trial

Land Rights and Human Rights on Trial: Turning the Tables on Genocide and Ecocide

The Case of the Ahousaht People, Weyerhauser, and the United Church of Canada

A First hand Account and Dialogue with Rev. Kevin Annett

With respondents Quisia Gonzalez and Teckla Negga Melchior

 

Saturday, January 18, 2014

1-3 PM at the Chapel of Peace Community Church, 40 East 35 St., New York, NY 10016

A common law court is convening in 2014 on Canada’s west coast to place in the docket a corporation, a church and a government that are equally responsible for the destruction of indigenous people and their forests.

The man who exposed this historic crime and brought Canada and its churches to account for genocide and child murder, Kevin Annett, will tell the story and describe how common law will seek to turn the tables on the perpetrators of crimes against humanity and the earth. During 2013, Kevin also helped prosecute and depose former Pope Benedict, Joseph Ratzinger, at the first International Common Law court proceedings against the Vatican in history. (see www.itccs.org)

Kevin will also invite participants to reflect on how the trauma perpetrated on all of us and on our world can be exposed and overcome, to allow us to reclaim and reconstitute our stolen liberties and our world.  “The land and society must rest from usury, oppression and fear, as must every soul”

Subject: The Impeachment of Benjamin Netanyahu

Dear 33rd Cabinet of Israel:

I write this Open Letter to prevent an existential crisis from playing out in Israel. Historically speaking we are on the edge of WW3 punctuated by situations similar to that of WW1. Benjamin Netanyahu, as directed by his ideological masters who serve Empire’s Middle Eastern oil policy and banking system has recklessly put Israel in the cross hair of thermal nuclear destruction, trade boycotts and increased isolation.

Geopolitically speaking: Where are Israel’s allies? How are Israel’s current polices conducive to economic and cultural prosperity for the next 50 years? The plan for a “Greater Israel” (‘living space’) was never in the interest of the Jewish State, or the Jewish people. However, endless war between Tribal and Ethnic peoples is money in the bank for the war profiteers who, coincidentally, sit atop of everything PNAC.

Israel needs to re discover the principles of  Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and dump the destructive dictates of Netanyahu. Israel has been on an increasingly rightwing path since the death of the former prime minister. Members of the Israeli Cabinet and Knesset MUST make steps to remove Benjamin Netanyahu from office before Israel is destroyed from the inside. Netanyahu has violated the Human Dignity and Liberty Clause of Israeli Basic Law. Moving ever toward apartheid like treatment of its workforce, the Palestinians, and its minority citizens has cheapened and eroded Israel’s moral authority, and placed every living Jew on earth in potential peril.

Failed Israeli government (as well as failed US government) was always the plan of AIPAC, as I have written for over two decades. The alleged complicity of the usual gang of suspects, Royal Empire of UK, Royal House of Saud, Jesuit banks, Bush & Bibi in the 9-11 attack on the USA is a broken dam that is just beginning to spill over, and which is unstoppable.

Peace is Israel’s only real hope-and the building of a two state economy. Impeach the neo con banking system of endless war for profit of Empire. Impeach B. Netanyahu, the puppet of Feudalistic world policy (PNAC).

My thoughts are conventional as they relate to Israeli domestic and foreign policy.

Some of my thoughts have been echoed by Colonel Wilkerson and other U.S. members of the political establishment.

Netanyahu is obviously a follower of Jabotinsky who was puppet of the Young Turks. Israel needs to reject Jabotinsky and re embrace the visionary pursuit of peace as per Yitzhak Rabin, who also had an IDF military background-let this not be forgotten. The IDF must be the voice of sanity for Israel in these perilous geo political times. If Israel is to survive peacefully the ideology of Jabotinsky must abandoned. It isn’t in Israel’s interest to annex the Jordan River Valley. The true patriots of Israel must abandon their servitude to the Modern Anglo-Dutch Empire.

My conscience, as a Jewish American, moves me to speak as loudly as I can in service to the interests of intelligence and peace.

May both prevail on earth.

 

Sincerely,

 

Roseanne Barr
