Yo, NFL Anthem Protesters: New Viewership Ratings Are In And They’re BRUTAL    ~ hehe Oops Image result for pic of head up your ass

Clash Daily
It looks like viewers don’t like their football mixed with politics.
We don’t want to see you take a knee for the anthem.
We don’t want to see your fist raised for ‘black power’.
We don’t want to see you disrespect the flag and the members of the military that have fought for your freedom to protest.
Save your protest for off the field, would ya?
Americans love football, but do you know what we love even more?
Our country.
And we’re willing to let you know by not watching.
It’s just week 2, but the dramatic drop in viewership speaks for itself.
For the second straight week, the NFL on CBS sank double-digits from last year.
The Week 2 NFL singleheader window delivered an 8.4 rating and 14.5 million viewers on CBS Sunday, down 24% in ratings and viewership from last year on FOX (11.0, 19.2M) and down 14% and 13% respectively from 2015 on CBS (9.8, 16.7M).
The 8.4 rating is the lowest for the Week 2 singleheader since at least 1998. The first two NFL windows on CBS this season have both declined double-digits to multi-year lows.

It’s obviously not the football, Americans still love it!
We’re just tired of the politicized lectures from people playing ball.
Or those that used to play ball, right Kaepernick?

I just want to watch a game — without being told that my country sucks.
Is that too much to ask?
Boycotts work.
Keep at it, Clash Nation!
Let’s make it clear to the NFL that we’re tired of being lectured.

U.S. media silent as Putin declares Russia GMO-free as they prepare to become top producer of organic food

Organic Strawberries Field In Farm Russia.
On the one hand, Russia is the largest producer of asbestos in the world (they even named the town where the mine is, after the toxin) and on the other hand, Putin has moved them toward becoming the biggest producer of organic food in the world. We live in a strange world.

Apparently, the leader of Russia spent years analyzing the dangers of GMO’s and decided they were going to go a different way: small, private rural gardens make up a large part of Russia’s agricultural system with about 40 percent of all vegetable and fruit crops coming from that sector. And so, in an attempt to provide exclusively organic food for itself (and other nations in Europe, the Middle East, and Asia) the Kremlin has been giving away free land to farmers or gardeners who pledge to produce only organic fruits and veggies.
For them, it works. It could work here too but, can you imagine that happening? Me either.
According to Baxter Dmitry, a writer with Yournewswire.com:
“‘A report prepared by the Security Council (SCRF) circulating in the Kremlin today [Janurary 9, 2016] states that President Putin has issued orders that his people must be protected from GMO ‘food’ and Western pharmaceuticals ‘at all costs.’ 
‘We as a species have the choice to continue to develop our bodies and brains in a healthy upward trajectory, or we can follow the Western example of recent decades and intentionally poison our population with genetically altered food, pharmaceuticals, vaccinations, and fast food that should be classified as a dangerous, addictive drug.’”1
While most Americans view Putin as just a communist tyrant, he’s actually proven himself to be a sharp businessman. By kicking out the west and cozying up to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, there is money to be made. Something he and his oligarch friends love.
“Deep in the Caucasus, downriver from Europe’s highest peak, North Korean women roam Soviet-era hothouses growing what tycoon Vladimir Evtushenkov is betting will be his next big bounty: the T-34 battle tomato.
The plump hybrids, named for the fearsome tank that helped trounce Hitler, are the pride of the Yuzhny Agricultural Complex, a mass of greenhouses the size of 2,300 football fields between the Black and Caspian seas. Watered by melting ice from towering Mount Elbrus, they and other strains of the fruit are grown here by the millions and trucked mainly to Moscow, 18 hours’ journey north.” 2
So, while he can’t control US sanctions he can control what Mother Russia does with their estimated 40+ million hectares of rich, idle land (about the size of Iraq) and thanks to his decision, farming is now even more profitable than crude.

Yet Another Developer Sees That Free Can Work For Video Games As Both An Anti-Piracy Strategy And As Promotion

from the getting-it dept   ,https://www.techdirt.com/articles/20170919/10400038240/yet-another-developer-sees-that-free-can-work-video-games-as-both-anti-piracy-strategy-as-promotion.shtml

We've made the argument for some time that there are ways to use giving away free content in order to both stave off the threat of video game piracy and to garner greater attention for the product. For all of the congratulations we heap on game developers for simply not completely freaking out over the fact that piracy exists, far too few of those developers go on to actually take advantage of what freely given away products can do for them. But there are those out there who get it, including Indie Gala, a studio that is essentially giving away its product as it stands for free, both because it wants gamers to get clean copies of the game from clean sites and in order to drive those gamers to the Early Access Steam version of the game.
One of their two flagship titles on Steam - Early Access survival horror game Die Young - has been received well enough, but the developers believe piracy is enough of a problem to necessitate an unusual solution: Players unable or unwilling to buy the game are able to just download it, directly and DRM free, from the Indie Gala site.
Speaking candidly, Indie Gala state that piracy is a double-edged sword. For a smaller independent title such as Die Young with little marketing budget, it helps to get eyes on the product, even if they are piratical ones. Less good is that pirated copies tend to be older, less stable builds, and potentially located on malware-strewn sites. The move to just allow access to the game direct seems to be done with the intent of at least converting some would-be pirates to customers as development continues.
Now, the key to this is that Die Young is still in active development in Early Access. The free version the studio is giving away is nearly the entire product as it currently stands, but those freely given versions won't receive the updated content that gets developed. For that, downloaders will have to transition to the Steam version of the game. In that way, this is a strange sort of hybrid between a game demo, playtesting an early build, and the try-before-I-buy scenario so many of those that admit to pirating games have claimed they engage in. For all this to be embraced by the game studio itself is the difference here, along with its claim of concern that gamers could get malware from untrustworthy sites.
It's easy to see how this could work. Gamers who like the content will want the updates and some of them will go to Steam to get them legitimately. Some gamers will be willing to try the game out since it's free when they might otherwise not have and, if they like it enough, will go to Steam to get the updated game legitimately. And some gamers will simply want to support a studio that has treated the larger gaming community so well and will go to Steam to get the game legitimately.
There's no downside to this. Piracy does exist, but by utilizing free content and treating people in a way that's human, its effects can be greatly mitigated.

It’s astonishing that there’s still such high demand for fur, leather, and other animal products in the fashion industry when there are so many cruelty-free alternatives that are equally as affordable, durable, and aesthetically appealing. Most of us living in industrialized nations are no longer living in the wild and require fur for warmth, as the vast majority of us have access to houses with heating and jackets with man-made fillers to keep us warm.

Yet, we still see this obsession with fur and other animal products in the fashion industry. Fashion is not fuelled by necessity, but rather consumerism. Don’t get me wrong, I’m all for expressing yourself and I encourage people to dress however they please, but does an innocent animal really need to die in order for you to do so?
Developing your own unique image and expressing yourself through your appearance can be a wonderful part of life for many people, but at what cost? So many people become so obsessed with their appearance that it leads to genuine unhappiness, and tons of people in third world countries as well as animals are suffering at the hands of the fashion industry.
One of the more recent examples of animal cruelty within the fashion industry was revealed thanks to an undercover investigation performed in Finland. The investigators found extremely overweight foxes bred for their fur who were trapped in cages and so heavy that they could barely move. The investigators even captured it all on camera, so you can really get a glimpse of how animal cruelty is embedded in the fashion industry.

Shocking Photos of Overweight Foxes Bred for Fur

The following photos were taken by the investigators from a local animal rights group in an effort to expose the animal cruelty that takes place within the fashion industry. These foxes are being bred in Finland for their fur, and they’re so overweight that they can barely move and most of them cannot see because their rolls of fat literally cover their eyes.
These animals are bred to be five times their natural weight, so it’s understandable why they can barely move or support themselves. Some of these foxes weighed an astonishing 19 kg as a result of genetic selection, in comparison to their average weight of 3.5 kg.
Of course, the fur from these animals isn’t just being purchased by the Finnish. In fact, over the course of the past five years, over £2.5 million worth of fur items were sold and exported from Finland to the UK.
The following images are of some of the overweight foxes in Finland bred for their fur:

Final Thoughts 

Of course, it’s not just foxes that suffer at the hands of the fashion industry. Millions of animals are tortured and killed every year for their fur, from raccoons and coyotes to wolves and otters, and many others in between.
It’s not just the fashion designers and clothing companies to blame; it’s us! We are the consumers of these products. If there weren’t such a high demand for them, then these companies wouldn’t be torturing and killing these animals in the first place.
Consumerism has become far too prevalent in society, and it’s blinding us from seeing how our desire for more is affecting other beings. If you purchase or wear fur, ask yourself, “Why?” Why is your desire for fashionable clothing so strong that you try to justify animal cruelty just to make a fashion statement? ( besides your just an sick ,twisted fuck )
Sometimes, when we see the fur on a piece of clothing, it allows us to become detached to where it came from. You’re not seeing it on a murdered animal, you’re seeing it on a clothing rack, so we don’t always make the connection.
Nevertheless, it’s important that we remind ourselves where these items came from, so we can put an end to animal cruelty once and for all. Remember, you vote with your dollar, so if you’d like to take a stand against animal cruelty, all you have to do is stop purchasing products from the companies who support these inhumane practices!
Much love.

If you haven’t already heard, quantum teleportation has actually been achieved, and in fact, scientists from China recently set the record for the farthest quantum teleportation ever, when they beamed a photon in its quantum state into orbit. This brings several quantum mechanical concepts into the equation, including quantum entanglement. When “teleportation” is referenced here, it’s also a verification that comes from recent studies which have confirmed entanglement to be real, something Einstein referred to as “spooky action at a distance.” “Action at a distance implies that a physical object can be moved by non-physical means, so not by touch or physical force, but other forces, including mental forces, as this article suggests. With entanglement, it means that either information is travelling faster than the speed of light, or better yet, instantaneously.
These findings contradict some laws that provide the foundation of modern physics, but the rate at which more is discovered is accelerating exponentially, and the foundations of what we call science needs a big time change. It’s happened before, and it is happening now.
There is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.” This statement (worldview statement) was by Lord Kelvin in 1900, which was shattered only five years later when Einstein published his paper on special relativity. The new theories proposed by Einstein challenged the current (at that time) framework of understanding. This forced the scientific community to open up to an alternate view of the true nature of our reality.
Today, the same thing is needed, and the same thing is happening. Worldview paradigms are changing, yet old scientific dogma still sticks around and dominates.

Teleportation at our Level, Not Just The Quantum Level

It’s odd how subjects within the realm of parapsychology or “psi” have been and are still ridiculed, despite the fact that there have been and are studies at the highest levels of science. Even in several mainstream “peer-reviewed” scientific journals, studies examining remote viewing, clairvoyance, telepathy and more have all yielded statistically significant results that are on part with that of the “hard” sciences, which refers to engineering, physics, etc.
This is precisely why the American Institutes for Research concluded:
“The statistical results of the studies examined are far beyond what is expected by chance. Arguments that these results could be due to methodological flaws in the experiments are soundly refuted. Effects of similar magnitude to those found in government-sponsored research at SRI and SAIC have been replicated at a number of laboratories across the world. Such consistency cannot be readily explained by claims of flaws or fraud.”
The fact that these sciences became black budget only gives it more credibility, and this is shown again by a document titled “Research into Paranormal Ability To Break Through Spatial Barriers,” in which the abstract reads as follows:
“This article uses strict scientific procedures, one of a kind test samples, videotape, and high speed photography to demonstrate the objective existence of the paranormal ability of breaking through spatial barriers. It also shows the physical process of this ability. It demonstrates that through the function of the paranormal ability, the macrobody was able to pass  through the wall of a container and be removed, but no visible damage to the wall of the container was detected.” 
This particular document, which was declassified through a Freedom of Information Act request (FOIA), outlines specific people with very special abilities and how they’ve been studied by thousands of scientists and governments around the world for a very long time.
This is important to acknowledge, because a constant “bash” of quantum physics is that, what we see at the quantum scale, which is the smallest observable level of what we believe to be the make up of our world, matter, is not seen at levels of reality that scale up to full physical objects.
So, for example, when it comes to teleportation, mainstream science has to acknowledge that yes, at quantum scales teleportation of “matter” in its quantum state has happened, but they are very reluctant to acknowledge that it applies at the level of full physical matter.
It’s important to mention that Eric Davis, Ph.D, FBIS, mentions in a declassified US Air Force document obtained via the Federation of American Scientists, that Chinese scientists have reported that ‘gifted children’ were responsible for the teleportation of small, physical objects from one place to another. Some of these objects included watches, horseflies, other insects, radio micro-transmitters, photosensitive paper and more. The participants never touched the objects beforehand. The experiments were done under both blind and double-blind conditions and the researches involved came from various colleges and sectors of the Department of Defense. This is an exceptional case because it was deemed necessary that an unclassified Intelligence Information Report be prepared for public viewing. (source)
According to Davis, “The results of the Chinese Teleportation experiments can simply be explained as a human consciousness phenomenon that somehow acts to move or rotate test specimens through a 4th spacial dimension, so that specimens are able to penetrate the solid walls/barriers of their containers without physically breaching them.” – Eric Davis, Ph.D, FBIS (source)
Perhaps it’s simply so mind-altering to think about, that even in the wake of credible evidence, some still have a hard time accepting it, perhaps because it simply challenges long held belief systems.
“Despite the unrivaled empiricial success of quantum theory, the very suggestion that it may be literally true as a description of nature is still greeted with cynicism, incomprehension and even anger.” – (T. Folger, “Quantum Shmantum;” Discover 22:37-43, 2001)
Physicist Russell Targ, the co-founder of a 23-year long government research program known as Stargate, recently gave a TED talk called “Everything I Know About ESP,” which was then cancelled.
Stargate included successful examples of telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, remote viewing, and more.
So, how can we continue to assume that the strange phenomena that have been observed at the quantum level don’t apply to the full scale level that we perceive? After all, it’s the same ‘bits of matter’ that we perceive, which makes up the physical realm anyways. The interesting thing about all these findings shows us that there are non-physical realms and forces that also play, perhaps an even more important role for understanding the true nature of reality.
This is exactly why a group of internationally recognized scientists have come together to emphasize the importance of what is still commonly overlooked in the mainstream scientific community, the fact that matter (protons, electrons, photons, anything that has a mass) is not the only reality).

Are you concerned about Genetically Modified Foods? Here’s (GMOs Revealed) a great documentary that addresses many of the questions and concerns most people have today. 

In March 2014, scientists from Indiana University announced that they had conducted research to examine the operations of the fruit fly genome “in greater detail than ever before possible” and had identified “thousands of new genes, transcripts and proteins.” Their results indicated that the fly’s genome is “far more complex than previously suspected and suggests that the same will be true of the genomes of other higher organisms.” Of the approximately 1,500 new genes that were discovered, 536 of them were found within areas that were previously assumed to be gene-free zones. Furthermore, when the flies were subjected to stresses, small changes in expression level at thousands of genes occurred, and four newly modelled genes were expressed altogether differently.
Why is this important? Because it reveals how little we know about this planet and the organisms dwelling on it, yet also how much we think we know. This kind of hubris is found within all areas of human knowledge, but particularly when it comes to science.
Another great example that I’ve used before is when the populace first realized that the Earth wasn’t flat. Another is a statement made by physicist Lord Kelvin, who stated in 1900 that “there is nothing new to be discovered in physics now. All that remains is more and more precise measurement.” This assertion was shattered only five years later when Einstein published his paper on special relativity.
When it comes to our genes, and the genes of other organisms, we really do know next to nothing. Unfortunately, proponents of the biotech industry (Monsanto, DuPont, Syngenta, etc.) claim otherwise, and have developed multiple, flawed assumptions that undergird agricultural bioengineering.
The information presented in this article comes from a variety of different sources, but my primary sourceis Steven Druker, a public interest attorney and the Executive Director of the Alliance for Bio-Integrity. He initiated a lawsuit in 1998 that forced the U.S. Food and Drug (FDA) to release its files on genetically engineered foods, and recently published a book about it, which has received dozens of rave reviews from the world’s most accredited scientists in the field. I draw primarily from his book for this article.
“This incisive and insightful book is truly outstanding. Not only is it well reasoned and scientifically solid, it’s a pleasure to read – and a must-read. Through its masterful marshalling of facts, it dispels the cloud of disinformation that has misled people into believing that GE foods have been adequately tested and don’t entail abnormal risk.” 
– David Schubert, PhD, molecular biologist and Head of Cellular Neurobiology, Salk Institute for Biological Studies.

Natural Genetic Modification Versus Human Induced Genetic Modification

Biotech proponents have an unshakable faith in their GE crops, and these corporations also hold major sway over mainstream media outlets, and close relationships with government agencies like the FDA. Indeed, several high level industry employees have also held positions at these institutions. One example is the FDA Deputy Commissioner for Foods, Michael Taylor, who is also Monsanto’s former Vice President for Public Policy. While at the FDA, he was instrumental in getting approval for Monsanto’s genetically engineered bovine growth hormone.
Druker outlines in his book how the commercialization of genetically engineered foods was enabled by the fraudulent behaviour of these government agencies, and how this actually violates explicit mandates for federal food safety law. The evidence shows that the “FDA’s falsehoods have been abundantly supplemented with falsehoods disseminated by eminent scientists and scientific institutions, and the entire GE food venture.”
This is why it’s so amazing to see so many scientists within the field supporting the dissemination of truth, and bringing the falsehoods to light. So if you still think this type of thing is a conspiracy theory, we now have the documents as well as the science, which stands on its own, to show that something is terribly wrong here.
Joseph Cummins, Ph.D. and Professor Emeritus of Genetics at Western University in London, Ontario, believes that Druker’s book is a “landmark” and that “it should be required reading in every university biology course.” 
There are several presumptions on which the bioengineering venture was based, and one of them is that natural breeding is more random and unruly than bioengineering. The standard argument holds that genetic modification has been occurring for thousands of years, and what we do now is simply that process sped up and made better.

Key Presumptions on Which the Bioengineering Venture Was Based

Genetic engineering is based on the presumption that the genome is just a linear system, where the action of a single gene will not impact the action of other genes, or disrupt their normal function.
In 2007, the New York Times published an article outlining how “the presumption that genes operate independently has been institutionalized since 1976, when the first biotech company was founded. In fact, it is the economic and regulatory foundation on which the entire biotechnology industry is built.” 
Basically, genes are viewed as autonomous, adding to the whole without acting holistically because they don’t express their proteins in a closely coordinated matter. Another assumption used to justify genetic engineering is that genes aren’t organized in a specific way, that the sequence in which they occur is meaningless From this point of view, a gene would function normally if it were relocated to a different chromosome or came from a neighbouring gene. Quite a big assumption, don’t you think? Giorgio Bernardi, a biologist at the University of Rome III who specialized in the study of genome evolution, calls this perspective a “bean-bag view of the genome” because it regards the genes as “randomly distributed.”
Druker explains:
Together, these two assumptions supported the belief that a chunk of recombinant DNA could be put into a plan’s genome without inducing disturbance — because if the behavior of the native genes was largely uncoordinated and their arrangement was irrelevant, there would be no important patterns that could be perturbed by such insertions. Accordingly, they engendered confidence in the precision of genetic engineering, because they implied that the outcome of a gene insertion would be exactly what the bioengineers expected.
How could biotech proponents push the idea that the target organism would continue to function just as it had before, and that the change would be limited to the new trait endowed by the inserted gene? How can it simply be assumed that this would not alter any of the organism’s other qualities?
These presumptions still underly genetic engineering today. The example of the fly above serves well here. In the New York Times article cited earlier, the author noted that “genes appear to operate in a complex network,” and states that “evidence of a networked genome shatters the scientific basis for virtually every official risk assessment of today’s commercial biotech products, from genetically engineered crops to pharmaceuticals.”
Molecular geneticist Michael Antoniou, who testified at New Zealand’s Royal Commission in 2001, notes that agricultural bioengineering “was based on the understanding of genetics we had 15 years ago, about genes being isolated little units that work independently of each other.” He also presented evidence showing that genes actually “work as an integrated whole of families.”
Despite the grave possibility that these presumptions are indeed wrong, they still form the backbone of genetic engineering today.
Antoniou himself was even selected to represent multiple nongovernmental organizations to present precaution reasons to the UK’s GM Review Panel, and a plethora of studies that clearly justify it. Despite his presentation, and many others’, the 11 other scientists on the panel, who were biotech proponents, dismissed these studies and continued to argue that it makes absolutely no difference how genes are arranged.
How can a scientist make such a statement?
What do we have as a result? As Druker says:
Such disregard, denial, or avoidance in regard to the evidence was essential for maintaining faith in the venture, because its predictability and safety have always relied on the genome being largely disjointed; and the more the genome instead appears to function as a tightly coordinated system, the more potentially disruptive and unpredictable are the interventions of the bioengineers.
Geneticist, activist, and environmentalist David Suzuki weighed in on this very subject a few years ago in an interview with the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC):
By slipping it into our food without our knowledge, without any indication that there are genetically modified organisms in our food, we are now unwittingly part of a massive experiment. . . . Essentially, the FDA has said that genetically modified organisms, or food, are basically not much different from regular food, and so they’ll be treated in the same way. The problem is this: Geneticists follow the inheritance of genes, in what we call a vertical fashion . . . [but] what biotechnology allows us to do is to take this organism, and move it, what we call horizontally, into a totally unrelated species. Now, David Suzuki doesn’t normally mate with a carrot plant and exchange genes. What biotechnology allows us to do is to switch genes from one to the other, without regard for the biological constraints. . . . It’s very very bad science. We assume that the principals governing the inheritance of genes vertically applies when you move genes laterally or horizontally. There’s absolutely no reason to make that conclusion.

More Differences

This is a common argument made by GE-food proponents, and commonly used whenever an expert brings up a challenge to the technology’s safety. For example, David Schubert, PhD, a molecular biologist and the Head of Cellular Neurobiology at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, commented in Nature Biotechnology that there was mounting evidence that the insertion of even one gene into a cell’s DNA alters the expression patters of genes throughout the entire cell. He said facts like this one, among many others, “cast doubt on the soundness of agricultural bioengineering — and entail the conclusion that it ‘is not a safe option.’ “
Predictably, when a professor and a laboratory director of one of the world’s most prestigious scientific institutions makes a comment like this, there’s going to be a response. This time it came in the form of a letter, published by 18 biologists at respected universities and institutions, stating that Dr. Schubert failed to properly consider “the genetic realities.” The main reality he allegedly failed to recognize is that the natural method of plant breeding is inherently more random than bioengineering.
A portion of the letter reads as following:
We do not take issue with Schubert’s basic contention that unintended genetic and metabolic events can take place. The reality is that ‘unintentional consequences’ are much more likely to occur in nature than in biotechnology because nature relies on the unintentional consequences of blind random genetic mutation and rearrangement to produce adaptive phenotypic results, whereas GM technology employs precise, specific, and rationally designed genetic modification toward a specific engineering goal.
In his book, Steven Druker offers the following counterargument: “This letter thus reveals how strongly the GE food venture relies on the presumption that the natural process driving biological development are intrinsically more disorderly and risk-bearing than the genetic interventions instigated by the human mind. And it confirms that this belief forms the ideological bedrock on which the venture rests.”
In fact, a report published in 2004 by the National Academy of Sciences couldn’t uphold “even the more modest notion that bioengineering and natural breeding pose the same risks.” The panel that produced the report ranked various modes of plant breeding in terms of their disposition to produce unintended effects. They were forced to acknowledge that bioengineering produces far greater effects than pollen-based sexual reproduction. Despite this fact, they still insisted that this does not mean a difference in risks.
Druker says in response:
Thus, there’s no rational way to reconcile the fact that natural breeding is less disruptive and more predictable than bioengineering with the claim that it poses equal or greater risk, which is why the admission in the 2004 report is a rarity — and why biotech proponents almost always ignore or deny that fact and instead assert that natural breeding is more disorderly and unpredictable.

Randomness

According to the biotech industry, natural plant breeding could actually result in crops that are dangerous to human consumption, which is why we should be grateful for genetic engineering. For example, in the same NAS report mentioned above, they portrayed what are known as “jumping genes” as more randomly mobile and threatening, but failed to recognize, as Druker points out, that although these entities do not pose risks within natural pollen based breeding, when bioengineering is employed they do because that process alone “tends to stir them up and get them jumping.”
When it comes to sexual reproduction, it’s yet another area where biotech proponents state that it’s a random phenomenon, despite the fact that we now know that it’s not random, and that there are multiple factors that can and do influence the genetics of life.   Genetic engineering, be it human induced or naturally occurring, requires a genetic “rearragnement,”  a recombination of DNA. The difference between the artificial way and the natural way is that the natural way does not disrupt the entire organism, as was discussed a little earlier in the article and touched upon in the Suzuki quote above.
As Druker explains:
This natural form of recombination occurs during the formation of gametes (the sperm and egg cells). It includes a step called crossover in which two partner chromosomes break at corresponding points and then exchange complementary sections of DNA; and every time a gamete is produced, every set of paired chromosomes engages in it. In this way, all the chromosomes end up with genes from both parents instead of from only one. However, all the genes are preserved, as is the sequences in which they’re positioned. The only changes are in the relationships between aleles. . . . So this natural recombination augments diversity while maintaining stability. And without it, except for the occasional favorable mutation, the composition of chromosomes would stay the same from generation to generation, and genetic diversity would grow at far too sluggish a pace.
He goes on to mention how natural recombination preserves the order of the genes, and is predictable in the way it cuts DNA. The entire process displays a great deal of order.
Despite this fact, scientists who support GE state, as in, for example, the 2004 NAS report, that “genetic engineering methods are considered by some to be more precise than conventional breeding methods because only known and precisely characterized genes are transferred.” They use the idea that the randomness and unpredictability of natural engineering make bioengineering safer.
Yet, as Druker so brilliantly captures:
This misleading tactic fixates on the predictability of the plant’s specific agronomic traits; and it portrays traditional breeding as less predictable than bioengineering because undesired attributes are often transferred along with the one that is desired. However, those who employ this ploy don’t acknowledge that if both parents are safe to eat, the unwanted traits hardly ever pose risk to human health. Rather, they’re undesirable for reasons irrelevant to risk (such as aesthetic appearance or seed size), and breeders must then perform back-crossing to eliminate them while retaining the trait they want. However,  although the inclusion of unwanted traits entails more work, it does not increase attendant risks. Therefore, while breeders can’t fully predict what traits will appear, they can confidently predict that the resulting plant will be safe to eat.
This is why the GE stance on natural modification is so flawed and misleading.
Druker goes on:
Although it describes the sexual reproduction of food-yielding plants as a messy and risky affair that involves the transfer of “thousands of unknown genes with unknown function,” we actually know quite a lot about those genes. And what we know is far more important than what we don’t know. We know that they’re all where they’re supposed to be, and that they’re arranged in an orderly fashion. And we know that during the essential process in which some of them are traded between partnered chromosomes in order to promote the diversity that strengthens the species, their orderly arrangement is marvelously maintained. Most important, we know that their functions mesh to form an exquisitely efficient system that generates and sustains a plant that regularly provides us with wholesome food.
This sharply contrasts with genetic engineering.
As you can see, comparing natural modification to biotech modification is not an easy process, and this isn’t even the tip of the iceberg. Research shows that it’s not natural modification that’s more random and risky, but biotech genetic modification:
The inserted cassettes are haphazardly wedged into the cell’s DNA, they create unpredictable disruptions at the site of insertion, the overall process induces hundreds of mutations throughout the DNA molecule, the activity of the inserted cassettes can create multiple imbalances, and the resultant plant cannot be deemed safe without undergoing a battery of rigorous tests that has yet to be applied to any engineered crop.

PALANTIR AND PRE-CRIME

https://gizadeathstar.com/2017/08/palantir-pre-crime/

Never heard of Palantir? Well, if you're a J.R.R. Tolkien- Lord of the Rings fan, or a fan of the movie adaptations of the fantasy trilogy, you'll know what a "palantir" is: it is for all intents and purposes a crystal-ball that functions as a kind of communications device, allowing its users, presumably, to also see future actions.
It is also the name of a predictive program developed by Peter Thiel, and rapidly being sold to law enforcement agencies around the country, according to this article shared by Mr. R.R.T, and it's well worth reading and pondering carefully:
As the article avers, the program brings to mind Philip K. Dick's "Department of Pre-Crime" which figured in the Tom Cruise movie, Minority Report:
Palantir, the CIA-backed startup, is Minority Report come true. It is all-powerful, yet no one knows it even exists. Palantir does not have an office, it has a “SCIF” on a back street in Palo Alto, California. SCIF stands for “sensitive compartmentalised information facility”. Palantir says its building “must be built to be resistant to attempts to access the information within. The network must be ‘airgapped’ from the public internet to prevent information leakage.”
Palantir’s defence systems include advanced biometrics and walls impenetrable to radio waves, phone signal or internet. Its data storage is blockchained: it cannot be accessed by merely sophisticated hacking, it requires digital pass codes held by dozens of independent parties, whose identities are themselves protected by blockchain.
...
Palantir watches everything you do and predicts what you will do next in order to stop it. As of 2013, its client list included the CIA, the FBI, the NSA, the Centre for Disease Control, the Marine Corps, the Air Force, Special Operations Command, West Point and the IRS. Up to 50% of its business is with the public sector. In-Q-Tel, the CIA’s venture arm, was an early investor.
Palantir tracks everyone from potential terrorist suspects to corporate fraudsters (Bernie Madoff was imprisoned with the help of Palantir), child traffickers and what they refer to as “subversives”. But it is all done using prediction.
In Iraq, the Pentagon used Palantir software to track patterns in roadside bomb deployment and worked out garage-door openers were being used as remote detonators by predicting it.
Palantir allowed the marines to upload DNA samples from remote locations and tap into information gathered from years of collecting fingerprints and DNA evidence, the results returned almost immediately.
Of course, all of this calls to mind Dick's "Department of Pre-Crime" and the dangers it presents, and the article itself mentions them:
However, when Cruise’s character begins to question the morality of what he is doing, his superiors detect a threat to the entire pre-crime programme. In order to get rid of him, Cruise is framed for a murder by altering the data of his thought history. In the final showdown with his boss, it is explained to Cruise that sometimes the numbers need to lie for the greater good of society.
Minority Report is set in 2054, but Palantir is putting pre-crime into operation now. The Los Angeles Police Department has used Palantir to predict who will commit a crime by swooping Minority Report-style on suspects. Palantir calls its work with the LAPD “improving situational awareness, and responding to crime in real time”.
Ok, so where's the high octane speculation?
Well, today I don't have one, but I do have a high octane prediction. Christ, according to the Gospels, once warned that all evil ultimately proceeds from the heart and mind of man. This is where it begins; the evil action begins not just in a thought or a temptation, but by the individual will holding it, so to speak, to the mind's attention, and contemplating it. From God's point of view, in other words, while the wilful attention to an evil action may not result in the action itself, nonetheless it is the same in God's eyes as if it had. But from the practical development of moral theology, it was long recognized that, from the human point of view, the action itself was far worse than the mere act of wilful (and pleasurable) attention to it. (Apologies for compacting so much into so little space!) With this in mind, here is the high octane prediction: the use of such programs will be justified by those wanting to impose even more surveillance on society precisely by such "theological" and "moral" appeals; after all, if Christ warned about the heart and mind of the individual as the beginning of the process of an evil action, then the best way to nip it in the bud is to convict on the basis of that beginning, regardless of the end result. It will be "sold", as it were, as a very "Christian" or "pious" or "religious" thing to do. Technology will thus be sold as a "solution" to the old problem of theodicy; technology, not grace, will perfect mankind. Everyone must conform in their thinking... it will be the new manifestation of the "social gospel", a tempting apple in the eye of its advocates.
And that of course, completely misses the other part of the problem, but I'll leave that for the reader to think about...

Trump Takes His Wrecking Ball To The NFL—WHY?

Baltimore Ravens players kneel down during the playing of the U.S. national anthem before an NFL
State of the Nation
Here these guys are: game-playing millionaires, who experience more annual arrests per capita than rap singers, complaining about … … …WHAT ? ! ? !
Then they demonstrate their extraordinary ignorance in glowing color by disrespecting the American flag and nation and people by using their prime-time platform to stick it in our faces.
These guys must be crazy. Or, maybe — just maybe — the concussions are really getting to them.
After all, in one study, 87% were found to have chronic traumatic encephalopathy, the serious brain condition caused by repeated concussions sustained during professional football games. NFL Concussions Much More Serious Than Previously Known — Study
This particular medical aspect of NFL culture must be seriously considered and is respectfully offered as to why these folks are so easily stampeded in their current misguided direction.

Crash & Burn

It’s inconceivable that the whole National Football league would go into a total “crash and burn” mode.  It’s as though all the owners and the players and the league officials are competing in a race to the bottom.  And, they’re all winning!
All President Trump did was to advise the NFL Commissioner to tell the football players to stand during the anthem.  Is that too much to ask of multimillion-dollar earning crybabies?  Trump Sports Feud Escalates: Demands NFL Chief “Tells Them To Stand”
Never has a POTUS run into so much stormy weather for simply suggesting that the highest paid athletes in the world show some basic respect and dignity.

Think about this wild and crazy predicament for just a moment.

These guys are really going out of their way to disrespect the paying public … … … especially in those red states where football fever is by far the strongest.
It’s obvious that the South and the Midwest are where football mania reigns supreme each and every fall season, and has practically forever.  While Southerners are the most conservative of the bunch, Midwesterners are a quite patriotic lot.
And, yet, these overpaid and over-armored spoiled brats (NFL ball players) have the audacity to disrespect their fan base every Sunday in the big stadium!
We know that these guys — football players in general — are not the brightest bulbs in the room, but why go out of your way to turn off your primary source of income?
We know that the NFL owners and league officials and coaches are also not the sharpest pencils in the drawer, but why shut down all of your major revenue streams?
This has got to be the craziest situation ever seen in professional sport.  Honestly, there is nothing even close to this self-destructive madness in league history.  Any league in any sport! Which begs the question: Who’s really running this game on the American people?

It’s not about NFL disrespect or Trump tweets, it’s about Soros’s social engineering.

Whenever things make no sense whatsoever, you can be sure that the George Soros tribe is squarely behind it.
For any social engineering endeavor of this magnitude that is foisted on the American people in real time has Purple Revolution written all over it.
Soros & Company couldn’t care less if all professional sports go down the tubes—forever. Ditto that for the Motion Picture Industry and the Music Industry.  Hollywood has already seen its fortunes diminish in the face of so much gratuitous Trump bashing.  So, too, have some of the more famous singers seen their fans dwindle, especially those who have carried water for the Soros network of seditious NGOs and subversive non-profits.
That’s it in a nutshell.  Social engineering run amuck by George Soros is irreparably tearing the social fabric by the day.  These increasingly tumultuous episodes are just more seeds of chaos and confusion being sown for the purpose of advancing the Clinton-inaugurated, Obama-led and Soros-sponsored Purple Revolution.

Continuation of Obama’s Race War

It ought to be clear that Trump inherited the race war deliberately started by Manchurian Candidate Barack Obama.  This is the primary means by which Soros & Company plan to destroy the American Republic.  Of course, the nation is deeply divided along many lines, but racial tensions have been festering for centuries.  The provocateurs are just waiting for the right time to light the fuse.  Then all of the other deep divisions exacerbated by the prevailing identity politics culture will catch on fire like the tinderbox that each one has become.
Everyone knows that police brutality and outright murders by law enforcement is at an all-time high.  However, it’s both blacks and whites, browns and yellows who are the victims of these unjustified killings across the country.  Nevertheless, the social engineers have framed this police criminality as directed at blacks alone.  Not only does this inflame the other injured demographics, it further empowers the black communities to claim their victimhood above everyone else’s.

Now look at the preceding photo of this character named Colin Rand Kaepernick.  He has a striking resemblance to Barack Obama for a very good reason.  His pedigree is also somewhat similar, and for the very same reason(s).  Kaepernick is the one who the social engineers quite intentionally used to start the whole “NFL players kneeling during the anthem” stunt.  Here’s his Obama-like personal history:
“Kaepernick was born in 1987 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to Heidi Russo, a 19-year-old white woman of Irish and Bohemian descent who was single at the time. His birth father, an African-American man, left Russo before Colin was born.”[1]
Just like Obama, Colin Kaepernick is not really black; he’s not entirely white.  His mulatto appearance gives him an appeal to all the different skin colors of America by purposeful design.  In this fashion did they set him up as the “prototype of protest” within professional sports.  Kaepernick probably doesn’t even know how he’s being utilized to inflame a race war across the nation.  Given the intensive mind control programming he’s been subjected to, he just does what he was trained to do.
There is one other key formula of this ongoing Soros-funded social engineering experiment that is stealthily setting up the Purple Revolution laboratory.  The real perps know that there is a major class war going on throughout America.  The banksters have systematically stripped Main Street bare in favor of enriching Wall Street since the Dot.com bubble burst in 2000.  Therefore, these globalists look for every opportunity to re-channel the sporadic class warfare in the red states into a full-blown race war in the blue state urban jungles.  They know that they will soon face existential threats when the US dollar collapses, and that they will need some serious cover.  As follows: Race Riots Incited To Overshadow Raging Class Warfare
KEY POINT: You can be sure that this exploding NFL saga is also serving as a major distraction from other schemes that Deep State is running under the radar at this very moment. Exactly what those machinations are will surely emerge in the days ahead. Whatever our attention is being diverted from is very BIG indeed.  This volatile NFL debacle is simply too engineered on the face of it not to have a specific purpose over and above what is stated in this article.

Hidden Back Story:
The U.S. Intelligence Community has it in for Donald Trump.  The various intel agencies are doing everything within their power to implement a soft coup which Soros himself has promised carry out.  In fact, the C.I.A. completely controls Professional Sports, Hollywood, and the Music Industry.  Also known as the celebrity culture, the most famous actors, musicians and pro athletes are totally controlled via the agency system.[2]  When the agent and/or attorney tells the celebrity to join the protest movement, he or she will blindly follow orders lest they jeopardize all future contracts (as well as their stellar reputation).  Should the celebrity decide to leave the reservation of political correctness, they will never get back on it.  They also risk their life, their family and their future by not following the dictates of Deep State. For the more famous personalities like actor Morgan Freeman, they are forced to perform ridiculous propaganda pieces like this: Who turned Hollywood liberal Morgan Freeman into a flaming Russophobe?


Soros PsyOp + CIA Black Op = Purple Revolution

What George Soros & Company is really doing here is empowering every person in the USA to protest anything they want, anytime they want, anywhere they want.
In other words, they are normalizing that it’s perfectly okay to use your workplace to protest, instead of work.
They are setting a dangerous precedent that it’s now acceptable to disrupt any venue or setting if you have a beef, or disagreement, or protest-worthy issue to vent.
In this way, Soros & Company is surreptitiously engineering the slowly emerging Purple Revolution.  When the right times comes, these Bolsheviks at heart will use these naive and suspecting celebrities to do their dirty work.   This is how communist revolutions are always executed; they use those who can promote their ill-fated cause until they are no longer needed.
Consequently, there are now available countless, and many clandestine, co-conspirators who unwittingly participate in this rapidly evolving insurrection.  These purple revolutionaries are not only the social engineers, agents provocateur and COINTELPRO operatives indigenous to Deep State, they also include the Sultans of Silicon Valley, Hollywood moguls, East Coast intelligentsia, among many other highly-placed representatives of the power elite.
The bottom line: When Soros pushes the button, as he has done across the Middle East (Arab Spring) and Europe (European Union collapse due to massive immigration), he will once again attempt to forge his twisted order out of the manufactured chaos.

Solution: Only the patriot movement can stop this burgeoning Purple Revolution. How so?  Stop attending all professional sports events and turn off TV sports coverage. Don’t go to the movie theaters or the stadiums or the concerts.  Only amateur sports arenas like college games are okay, perhaps.  Avoid all the pop musicians that fill the airwaves with their utter cacophony.  Stay away from all the big retailers like Walmart and Amazon.  Patronize those corporations that have signaled their patriotism and/or nationalism.  Same with restaurant chains and other food/beverage franchises.  For instance, Panera is obviously superior to Starbucks, at least for the time being.  Let’s face it, “This Is A Great Time To BOYCOTT Hollyweird“.  And that’s how it’s done: hit them in the pocket book and they will cave in a New York minute.

Conclusion

Fall is the season of change in the Northern Hemisphere.  Fundamental changes often take place in American society after being initiated by powerfully transformative events (e.g. August 21st total solar eclipse, 2017 hurricane season).  The false flag terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 set the global stage for the Third Millennium.
This past week, starting on September 20th, served as a defining moment in US history for several reasons that are discussed in this essay: 2017: Year of the Great Turning.  The convergence of so many profound events — both mundane and celestial — will greatly accelerate the oncoming transition.  It will be helpful to have the best tools and techniques for dealing with this unparalleled period of societal flux.  As follows:
“Time of Transition” Is Upon Us – Essential Knowledge For Navigating Through The Storms
From this point forward, the forces of chaos will manifest throughout the USA as never seen or experienced before.  The entire nation will undergo a metamorphosis that has been long in the making.  It is critical to understand where these forces comes from and how to best respond to them.
Deep State will pull out all the stops.  The U.S. Intelligence Community will continue to coordinate a soft coup until Trump is out of the White House.  The C.I.A. will oversee the Purple Revolution, as George Soros plays the frontman and funding agent.
For the third time since World War II, the American people will witness a full-blown coup d’├ętat unless the patriot movement takes back the country from the shadow government. Of course, the $64,000 question is: Who controls the World Shadow Government?

Let’s get busy!
