Your Right to Refuse | Ashtar Sheran via Sharon Stewart — Voyages of Light – March 25, 2020

(Voyages of Light)

I am Ashtar Sheran with a message for those on Planet Earth.

As you are aware, there is a battle going on between the Light and the dark on the surface of your planet now. Your Alliance members are making inroads, using the Corona Virus as a cover for implementing their project Liberation Earth, St Germaine Funds.

The cabal, although being arrested, are fighting back. You must understand that you must take what they print in the news, put on social media, put on the television for all to see, with a grain of salt. When they say they are going to implement forced vaccinations, do you think that they will be able to do this? They can only do what they do with your permission. You hold the power over them, always. →

How The Military-Industrial Complex Gets Away With Murder in Contract After Contract — Prepare For Change – March 9, 2020

(Prepare For Change)

By Mandy Smithberger,

Call it a colossal victory for a Pentagon that hasn’t won a war in this century, but not for the rest of us. Congress only recently passed and the president approved one of the largest Pentagon budgets ever. It will surpass spending at the peaks of both the Korean and Vietnam wars. As last year ended, as if to highlight the strangeness of all this, the Washington Post broke a story about a “confidential trove of government documents”—interviews with key figures involved in the Afghan War by the Office of the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction—revealing the degree to which senior Pentagon leaders and military commanders understood that the war was failing. Yet, year after year, they provided “rosy pronouncements they knew to be false,” while “hiding unmistakable evidence that the war had become unwinnable.” →

US, Taliban Sign Peace Deal To End 18 Year War, Set Conditions for Troop Withdrawal — The Free Thought Project – February 29, 2020

(The Free Thought Project)

(ZH) A peace deal between the United States and its once sworn enemy the Taliban has been sealed in twin ceremonies, in which the US has agreed to wind down the war in Afghanistan after more than 18 years of fighting that turned into the longest conflict in American history, and to withdraw all of its troops from Afghanistan.

In the historic signing ceremony with the top US diplomat and the Taliban’s second highest-ranking leader, the U.S. and the militant group agreed to begin to end America’s longest war. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo met a Taliban delegation during a historic moment which they shared a stage in Qatar’s capital Doha. Pompeo, who called it “a momentous day”, gave a list of pointers to the Taliban to follow to ensure success.

Included in the deal are the following key clauses: →

The Long Sordid History of Pentagon Intervention in Iraq — Prepare For Change – February 25, 2020

By Jacob G. Hornberger,

(Prepare For Change  There is no reason for the Pentagon to be depressed, despondent, or angry over the fact that Iraqi officials are kicking the Pentagon out of Iraq. The Pentagon doesn’t belong in Iraq in the first place.

First, it’s important to keep in mind that ever since the Pentagon and the rest of the U.S. national-security establishment lost their official Cold War enemy, the Soviet Union, with the end of the Cold War in 1989, Iraq never invaded the United States or even threatened to do so. In the 30 years that the Pentagon has been killing people and wreaking destruction in Iraq, it has always been the Pentagon that has been the aggressor and Iraq the defender. →

We’re Asking One Question In Assange’s Case: Should Journalists Be Punished For Exposing War Crimes? — Activist Post – February 23, 2020

(Activist Post)

By Caitlin Johnstone

This is a speech I gave yesterday at a demonstration for Assange with the Socialist Equality Party Australia.

Tomorrow in the UK a judge will start the process of answering a very important question. It’s a question that many of us knew was the heart of this debate back in 2010, ten years ago, when this all started. It’s a question that they have been obfuscating, bloviating, huffily denying, smearing, gaslighting, and distracting from–basically doing anything they can to hide it from view.

It’s a question that they don’t want the public to know that we are answering. A question that goes to the heart of democracy, and to the heart of the role of the fourth estate, journalism. And that question is this:

Should journalists and publishers be punished for exposing US war crimes? →

(Prepare For Change)  Netanyahu’s frenzied lobbying efforts to halt the ICC probe suggests that the probe greatly worries him, particularly as he has linked his current reelection bid to illegal acts like his planned annexation of the West Bank.

By Whitney Webb,

TEL AVIV — Since the International Criminal Court (ICC) announced it would investigate war crimes committed by Israel in the Gaza Strip and occupied West Bank last December, Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has been attempting to rally Israel’s allies in a multilateral effort to stop the ICC’s probe. →

Mike Quinsey Message, February 21, 2020

(The Tree of the Golden Light)

21st February 2020. Mike Quinsey.

Why do we warn against holding onto negative thoughts, simply because they are energies that build up and eventually take form. Consequently they are attracted by those souls who hold onto such thoughts, even though they represent experiences they would rather let go. The most obvious example is that of the “Devil” that exists in thought form only and does not possess a soul. However, its influence is fearful and although souls try to ignore it, through the fear it creates they are maintaining its existence.

In other words when you focus upon something you give it power regardless of whether it is seen as positive or negative. For Reptilians, fear is the energy that they feed upon, and they create conditions that will ensure that type of energy is always available to them. They rely upon it for their existence as “food” and without it would lose their power. →
