Pre-quake, Haiti was already an unenviable place: Half its population lives on less than a dollar a day, making it the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. Its infant mortality rate is higher than most African countries and life expectancy is a paltry 44 years. Over 98% of its forests have been chopped and burned for firewood. It is particularly vulnerable to flooding from hurricanes and it suffers from a series of tropical diseases, including diarrhea, dengue fever, typhoid fever, malaria, hepatitis and others.
But on Tuesday, January 12th, things got much worse. A magnitude 7.0 earthquake, with its epicenter 15 km west of Port-au-Prince, devastated Haiti’s capital. Some fatality estimates have been as high as 200,000. Whatever the actual number, it is certain to increase in the days and weeks ahead. On Sunday, January 17th, Presidents Obama, Bush (the son) and Clinton held a joint press conference. President Obama asked his two immediate predecessors to coordinate the effort to rehabilitate Haiti. It was the only the second time in history that three presidents worked together to achieve a common purpose. The first was nearly exactly five years ago, when President Bush (the son) asked his two predecessors, Clinton and his own father, to spearhead a comparable task force to aid tsunami victims across south-east Asia.
Troubles at home, aid abroad
American might is often associated with stealth bombers, massive aircraft carriers, bunker blaster weapons and nuclear powered submarines. It has the strongest military in the world. However, in my view, its true status as a superpower is expressed by its ability to mobilize those same aircraft carriers, Hercules C-130 airplanes, 270 foot Coast Guard cutters, amphibious dock landing ships, and deploy thousands of soldiers, sailors, marines and volunteers on the ground and establish multiple surgical hospitals in a couple of days.
As the world questions America's viability as a superpower, I wonder when the BRIC nations - the darlings of the emerging markets - will emerge as competing global leaders. I ask where are Brazil, Russia, India, China and other putative powers in times of crisis? Granted, Haiti is closer geographically to the United States, but, following the December 2004 tsunami, America was also the dominant provider of aid to India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Thailand and many other affected countries thousands of kilometers away.
400,000 HAITIANS BEING SHIPPED OFF TO FEMA CAMPS
DID YA NOTICE THE NWO RESETTLEMENT COMMUNTIES AND FEMA CAMP SYMBOLISM THEY MADE IN DISTRICT 9?
JUST THINK OF THE ALIENS ARE HAITIANS TOO!
Everyone assumes that America, as the world's largest economy, should carry the burden of helping less fortunate nations, whether through ongoing humanitarian aid in Africa or relief wherever disaster may strike. And America has shouldered that responsibility disproportionately in Bosnia, Kosovo and numerous other instances. Moreover, it continues to do so today while it suffers from major economic challenges and many within its own borders are unemployed, under-employed, lack basic health insurance and struggle to feed their own families. With the country's staggering deficits, and seeing it stretched to the limit on various fronts, several Americans have objected to their country’s multi-year, multi-billion dollar commitment to rebuild a foreign country.
Nevertheless, most Americans are in favor of providing aid, and are participating themselves. Hundreds of civilian volunteers have traveled to Haiti to help, and hundreds of millions of dollars have been raised by the Red Cross and other relief agencies through multiple venues, including text messages.
Israel - giving above its weight
Another country that gives significantly above its weight is Israel. With a population approximately half that of Haiti, Israel immediately sent two Boeing 747 Jumbo planes with field medical tents, surgical equipment and 240 personnel: 60 doctors and medics, 20 nurses, 20 X-ray technicians and 140 search and rescue volunteers. The group set up a major field hospital next to Port-au-Prince's soccer stadium. It is among the largest medical facilities operating in Haiti, treating over 500 patients per day. Most of these patients are earthquake victims. However, an IDF team also assisted a Haitian woman who delivered what is believed to be the first baby born after the disaster. She named her daughter Israel.
Israel has disproportionate experience dealing with search and rescue, much of it acquired pulling victims out of buildings and buses destroyed in terrorist attacks. For these reasons, it also developed heightened expertise in triage and trauma. It has applied this experience in previous disaster scenes around the world, including Mexico, Argentina, Armenia, Kenya and Turkey.
So while Columbus did not in fact discover America, now America and the rest of the world have discovered Haiti. As Israelis, Turks, Swedes and volunteers from over 30 other countries help steer Haiti’s survivors towards recovery, we learn that in disaster, race, ethnicity and socio-economic background become meaningless. In times of tragedy, the true nature of humanitarian power is tested. Personally, I watch with pride as entities often criticized as Big Satan and Little Satan perform as Big Angel and Little Angel, regardless of who’s watching.

Jan 16, 2010 ... There they met with President Obama and agreed to lead a major fundraising effort for relief: the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund.
The UN children's aid organisation UNICEF reported Friday that around 15 children have disappeared from hospitals. The agency had warned countries during the past week not to step up adoptions from Haiti in the immediate wake of the quake

Black rights activist T. West of AfriSynergy Productions warns that people need to be aware of the tragedy in Haiti being exploited by nefarious groups for their own gain, including Israel, who have admittedly stolen organs from dead Palestinians in the past.
West highlighted a CNN news clip as evidence of how the media is promoting the Israeli relief efforts in Haiti as second to none. Though praising the Israelis for their support for the victims and outstanding medical facilities, West warned that there were “personalities who are out for money” operating in Haiti with no monitoring of their activities.
“It is good that the IDF and others are helping there, but everywhere there is death, there are exploiters. There needs to be transparency in Haiti,” West told YNet News in an interview.
“The Haitian people must watch out for their citizens,” said West, highlighting past cases of IDF stealing organs from Palestinians.
Last month, the London Guardian reported on the admission of Dr Yehuda Hiss, the former head of Israel’s forensic institute, who stated that the organs of Palestinians were harvested without consent from family members. This followed a controversy after a Swedish newspaper reported that Palestinians were deliberately being abducted and killed by Israeli Defense Forces so their organs could be harvested and sold.
“The U.S. media are quick to talk about people who are stealing, people who are looting in Haiti….so be aware of this, be aware and be cautious of international groups and certainly individuals within those groups who are out for money and to earn money off of your tragedy,” said West.
West also said that musician Wyclef Jean was being demonized by the media because he was promoting methods of donating to charity where the money actually goes to victims and doesn’t get swallowed up by giant transnational charities who have been caught stealing money before.
“Jean Wyclef’s name, as is so often done with Black people, is being maligned in the media. Wyclef is a native of Haiti and is using his influence in the entertainment industry to bring assistance to the Haitian people,” wrote West.
In subsequent videos, West addressed those who attacked him for warning about the potential misdeeds of the IDF, saying, “These individuals are of the Zionist persuasion, they will go all out to defend Israel and the dirty things that the IDF do.”

400,000 HAITIANS BEING SHIPPED OFF TO NWO FEMA CAMPS
Officials in Haiti are now planning to relocate 400,000 people from makeshift camps in Port-au-Prince to the outskirts of the capital. Meanwhile, the U.S. government will begin to work on repairing he damaged main port. Both efforts are attempts at helping residents survive the aftermath of the deadly earthquake.
It is hoped that these efforts will stave off the spread of disease at the hundreds of temporary settlements across the city, where the homeless live under tents, tarps, or nothing, and with no sanitation. Many will now be moved somewhere else outside the city where there is at least some sanitation.
Fritz Longchamp, chief of staff to President Rene Preval, said that the mass relocations could begin by the end of the month. Hope of finding more survivors from the January 12 has begun to fade. Some rescue crews have started packing up, and relief workers now are focusing on keeping those who did survive alive.
The US Army, Navy, and Coast Guard are also workign to repair Port-au-Prince's only functional industrial pier, which is essential to receiving massive aid shipments coming into the country. The repairs will involve underwater construction teams and Navy divers to survey the damage, and is critical to Haiti's long-term recovery.
With the extensive damage, only four ships have been able to dock at the pier since the earthquake. Unloading takes longer than usual due to 15-inch wide racks that run through the dock. This allows just one truck to drive on it at a time. Cranes on the port now also tip dangerously into the sea, while others have been rendered useless.
Damage is so extensive to the port that the military cannot yet tell how long it will take before ships can dock and unload in large quantities. Prices on imported foods and oil are expected to skyrocket as a result of the inability to bring it in via the port.
"I want to make sure that when America projects its power around the world, it's not seen only when it's fighting a war," Mr Obama said. "It's got to also be able to help people in desperate need. And ultimately that will be good for us. That will be good for our national security over the long term."
Haiti’s Natural Disaster–Made in Israel?
Published January 23, 2010 Uncategorized 25 Comments
“Good things come to those who wait”, as the old saying goes. For me, it was an email I received this morning from one of the dozens of lists I am on. In this case, it was a link to a story appearing on an Israeli news site written some time ago entitled “Israel Makes Waves by Simulating an Earthquake” that read in part as follows–
“The Seismologic Division of the Ministry of National Infrastructure’s Geophysical Institute will attempt to simulate an earthquake in the southern Negev on Thursday. The experiment, financed by the U.S. Defense Department, is a joint project with the University of Hawaii and is part of a scientific project intended to improve seismological and acoustic readings in Israel and its environs, up to a 1,000 km/621 mile radius.
The experiment intends to improve the understanding of sound waves in the atmosphere. Scientists will then be able to fine-tune Israel’s seismological equipment to give advance warning of earthquakes. Measurements will also be taken in other countries, including Cyprus, Greece, France, and Germany.
Israel will create a controlled explosion of 80 tons of explosive material, which will simulate the intensity of a tremor after an earthquake of Magnitude 3. Natural earthquakes of a similar intensity occur in the Middle East region about once a week, without the public feeling them.
In the last few years, the Geophysical Institute has created several earthquake simulations in order to calibrate its equipment. In June 2004, the institute detonated 32 tons of explosives in the southern Negev. In June 2005, the institute detonated 20 tons in the Beit Alfa quarries in the Jezreel Valley south of the Galilee. The success of the experiments has significantly contributed to improving the accuracy of identifying earthquakes in Israel.”
So, in other words, the notion that “interested parties” can cause earthquakes is not as much an “Art Bell” topic as some may think. The fact that Israel is up to her ears in this kind of business and working alongside the US Department of Defense of all entities is rather interesting as well. Those who would scoff at such a notion should recall that years ago when a few brave souls were claming that Israel had developed an “ethnic bomb” (specifically-designed to kill those of Arab descent) and that the Jewish state was stealing organs of Palestinians they were called everything in the book from conspiracy theorists to anti-Semites. Now these are established facts,
As with all things taking place in our topsy-turvey world these days, the one question that must be asked time and again is “Who Benefits?” When news of the earthquake hit and it was obvious that the centerpiece of the coverage was not the suffering of the Haitian people but rather the fact that Israel was leading the charge in bringing humanitarian relief certainly caused my bushy eyebrows to raise a little. Added to this is the fact that the US sent 10,000–TEN THOUSAND–troops to the region, and not the National Guard types more suited for rescue-relief type work but rather PARATROOPERS is something worth noting as well.
Besides the obvious benefit to Israel’s image resulting from such an event where she morphs from a bloodthirsty killer of dark-skinned Palestinian and Lebanese women and children to the rescuer of dark-skinned Haitians, there is the other possibility to consider–that this was used as a demonstration to the rest of the world that a new weapon of war had been developed, one whose devastation could not be attributed to another country but rather would be seen as an “act of God” to everyone but the leaders of a particular country in the crosshairs of Israel and the US.
Would Israel, working in collusion with the US Defense Department go so far as to cause an earthquake by strategically placing nuclear weapons in certain geologically-sensitive places, thereby causing the deaths of tens of thousands in order to gain a PR victory from it at a time she is universally despised around the world?
Well, perhaps we should ask the 1.5 million Iraqis killed in the aftermath of 9/11 brought about by Israel’s Mossad for the purpose of bringing about the “war to end all wars” between the Islamic and Christian worlds.

It’s business as usual for The Independence of the Seas, owned by Royal Caribbean International cruise lines, which has docked at Labadee Beach, sixty miles from the ruins of Haiti’s earthquake hell.
Who, in their right mind, would even want to go to 'a walled resort', where 'pristine beaches and breathtaking scenery' are patrolled by armed guards to protect clients from all that 'native charm' in the first place, particularly now when there’s the risk desperate people might break through the resort's 12ft high fences in search of food and fresh water…
... oh, wait. Fat white men with pockets full of viagra.
After all, according to Pat Robertson, that is what separates 'cursed' Haiti from the prosperous and clean Dominican Republic - resorts. 'Hundreds' of Haitians are employed by Royal Caribbean – apparently 230, but enough for the plural – but I guess a little thing like having your entire country ravished by an earthquake isn't covered by their employment benefits. The company can't suspend operation to Haiti and still afford to keep these 'hundreds' of people on the payroll until the country buries the tens of thousands of dead and starts to rebuild? Damn, they must not be charging their customers enough! But that is, of course, why there are any customers in the first place; cheap holidays.
Impoverished countries from the Caribbean to south-east Asia provide a huge cheap labour pool as well as land for holidaymakers to relax in style. The Haitian private beach of Ladabee is no different than other gated resorts, if perhaps a bit top-heavy on the armed guards. Cruise ships rely on poor countries – as well as conveniently grey legislation allowing American companies to sail under Panamanian and Liberian flags of convenience – to keep their standards of luxury affordable. After all, the economy isn’t what it used to be, even for the rich folks.
Oh, but Royal Caribbean is also transporting food for the Haitians, 40 pallets of rice, beans, powdered milk, water and canned food. That's nice. I can’t help but wonder, however, how much more food as well as medicine, and doctors and nurses and maybe even people like engineers and carpenters and electricians and plumbers with building supplies for shelters could they transport if they turfed out the fat white men with pockets full of viagra from those 4,370 berths to make room? Royal Caribbean owns 42 ships, surely one of them can be used for something other than floating rock-climbing walls, miniature golf, lounges and restaurants, casinos, swimming pools, solariums, loft suites and flow-riders and zip-lines and aqua-theatres, whatever the hell those are, even ice-skating rinks.
Was this the first Maitreya Interview ?
Raj Patel is a British-born American academic, journalist, activist and writer  who has lived and worked in Zimbabwe, South Africa and the United States for extended periods. He is best known for his 2008 book, Stuffed and Starved: The Hidden Battle for the World Food System. His most recent book is The Value of Nothing.
Born in London, Patel received a B.A in Philosophy, Politics and Economics, from Oxford, a Masters Degree from the London School of Economics and gained his PhD in Development Sociology from Cornell University in 2002. He has been a visiting scholar at Yale and the University of California, Berkeley. As part of his academic training, Patel worked at the World Bank, World Trade Organization and the United Nations. He has since become an outspoken public critic of all of these organizations, and claims to have been teargassed on four continents protesting against his former employers. Patel was one of many organizers in the 1999 protests in downtown Seattle, WA, and has organized in support of Food sovereignty. More recently he has lived and worked extensively in Zimbabwe and in South Africa. He was refused a visa extension by the Mugabe regime for his political involvement with the pro-democracy movement. He is associated through his work on food with the Via Campesina movement, and through his work on urban poverty and resistance with Abahlali baseMjondolo and the Landless Peoples Movement. He has written a number of criticisms of various aspects of the policies and research methods of the World Bank and was a co-editor, with Christopher Brooke, of the online leftist webzine The Voice of the Turtle.
He is currently a visiting scholar in the Center for African Studies at the University of California at Berkeley, a Fellow at Food First, also known as the Institute of Food and Development Policy, and a Research Associate at the School of Development Studies at the University of KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa.
In 2007 he was invited to give the keynote address at the University of Abahlali baseMjondolo graduation ceremony. In 2008 he was asked to testify on the global food crisis before the House Financial Services Committee in the USA. He is regularly interviewed on the BBC, NBC, Al Jazeera, NPR etc.
Patel became a US citizen in January 2010.
Although Raj Patel has been dealing with macroeconomic issues, his book "The Value of Nothing" takes its title not from an economic principle but from a quote by Oscar Wilde: "Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing." Patel is a London-born academic and activist whose online bio explains that he "has worked for the World Bank and WTO and been tear-gassed on four continents protesting against them."
Tonight, Patel will be on the Colbert Report to talk about his book, which is a critique of markets -- sparks will probably fly. Later this month, the author comes to Los Angeles -- on Jan. 20, he'll be at the L.A. Public Library's Aloud series, which requires reservations but offers its tickets free -- providing value for, of course, nothing.
-- Carolyn Kellogg
Academic/activist/writer Raj Patel appeared on The Colbert Report Tuesday to discuss his new book, "The Value of Nothing." The title comes from a quote by Oscar Wilde, which is telling in and of itself: "Nowadays people know the price of everything and the value of nothing."
Patel argues that prices in the free market are deceiving, and that the hidden costs of our consumption can actually end up causing environmental harm. Food, for example, causes a lot of environmental damage that is not reflected in the price.
"I give the example of a $200 hamburger," Patel said. "The trouble is that it's a regular hamburger, but the fact is that if you add in the hidden costs of environmental destruction behind it for example, that cost could add up to $200."
Colbert retorts: "So are you saying that if I go to the drive-thru at a burger establishment represented by a jolly clown, that I should be paying $200 for their big burger?"
Suffice it to say, we would be eating very differently if we did pay the true value of what we eat, Patel replied.

President Obama Is Criticized For Not Dealing With Planet X / Eris / Nibiru
Planet Eris and stopping Gulfstreamului
Some astronomers say that a planet the size of Mars or Earth could be lurking on the fringes of our solar system. But even the latest space telescopes that launched in 2009 stand little chance of finding such a distant object.
Such a world, if it exists, would probably have an orbit far beyond Pluto or similar dwarf planets in the outer solar system. It would likely resemble a frozen version of Mars or Earth at best, a most unsuitable home for life. And it would not be alone.
"When the solar system's story is finally written, it's much more likely that it will have closer to 900 planets rather than the nine that we grew up with," said Alan Stern, a planetary scientist at the Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) in Boulder, Colo.
Just a handful of those potential discoveries might reach the size of Earth, compared to a swarm of Pluto-sized bodies that Stern and others expect to find.
Each object – be it termed a planet, dwarf planet or otherwise – would serve as a frozen time capsule that could reveal much about the early evolution of the solar system. It could even force scientists to once again rethink the definition of a planet, following the controversial downgrading of Pluto to a dwarf planet.
Beyond the belt
Pluto's downfall came in part because astronomers discovered a number of smaller planetary objects in the outer solar system. Dwarf planets such as Eris occupy a cluttered, icy region beyond Neptune known as the Kuiper Belt. But a planet the size of Mars or Earth has not turned up at such range.
"For the Kuiper Belt we can already say there is nothing Earth or Mars sized, as its dynamical effects would be easily seen," said Mike Brown, an astronomer at Caltech who led teams that discovered Eris (and nicknamed it "Xena" at first) and other dwarf planets.
One of Brown's past dwarf planet discoveries, Sedna, occupies a strange elliptical orbit between the Kuiper Belt and the more distant Oort Cloud — a possible sign of the gravitational influence of another world as big as Earth, one astronomer proposed. But Brown suspects that such a large object would have been spotted already.
Brown and Stern say that the Oort Cloud represents a more likely prospect for worlds the size of Mars or Earth. The Oort Cloud surrounds our solar system with billions of icy bodies at distances as far out as 50,000 times the distance between the sun and Earth.
"Once you go beyond the Kuiper Belt, to the Sedna region or the Oort Cloud, you can always hide things by putting them farther away," Brown told SPACE.com.
How they got there
Brown noted that any future discovery of larger objects in the outer solar system would either suggest that scientists have the wrong idea of how planets form, or might indicate that the early solar system had more material available than previously suspected.
"More interesting to me, though, is that it would be an entirely new class of large body," Brown said. "We don't have any ice rich planetary-sized bodies in the solar system, so we don't really know what they would be like and how they would work."
Stern has long supported the idea of many planet-sized lurkers in the outer solar system. He referred to computer models that show how medium-sized planets might have formed during the chaotic creation of gas giants such as Jupiter, when swirling smaller pieces clumped together to form larger bodies.
"Giant planets gravitationally cleared out regions between them, with each capable of throwing small and medium size planets into the deep solar system," Stern explained.
Define 'planet' for me
Such small or medium planets hanging out in the distant reaches of the solar system would cast renewed doubt on the 2006 ruling of the International Astronomical Union (IAU). Stern has heavily criticized the IAU's decision, which demoted Pluto in part because of its location in the solar system.
"The IAU is slowly beginning to realize that it has made a great mistake," Stern said. He predicted that the organization would retract its 2006 decision if new planet-sized discoveries emerge in the future.
Brown stood by the IAU decision as a "very clear definition" that has scientific usefulness. But he too acknowledged the likely complications with outer solar system planets the size of Mars or Earth.
"It seems pretty obvious that if something Earth sized is discovered, everyone is going to call it a planet," Brown said. "So then we are back to the drawing board, unfortunately."
A question of when
The prospect of bigger planets farther out may have to wait until scientific detection improves. Stern compared the search with existing space telescopes to "looking at the sky through a soda straw," because most telescopes have extremely narrow views of the sky. Even the most powerful telescopes can only directly spot planetary objects about 10 times farther out than Pluto.
NASA's new WISE spacecraft has a very slim chance of spotting a close-in planet with its all-sky infrared survey, Brown and Stern agreed. But they both have higher hopes for the upcoming Large Synoptic Survey Telescope, which should have the ability to spot Earth-sized objects as far out as perhaps 1,000 astronomical units (AU), where 1 AU is the Earth-sun distance.
That 1,000 AU still falls short of the Oort Cloud's vastness, which occupies a region tens of thousands of AU away. Still, Stern suggested that future space exploration might even reach distant Earth siblings — a can-do attitude that perhaps reflects his role as principal investigator for NASA's outbound New Horizons probe headed for Pluto.
"The Oort Cloud is the solar system's attic, with all sorts of stuff up there," Stern said. "We just don't have a big enough ladder to go up and look around yet."
By Mitch Battros - Earth Changes Media
"I just had a second interview with Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder of the the 'Clan de Aguila' (the Eagle clan). As part of my personal learning curve, I need to be very careful how I present breaking news events, and even more so when I present prophecy and predictions.
Why? Because the prophecy and predictions I present here on ECM has a high accuracy rate. This is not by coincidence - it is by devoting endless hours to research, and maintaining the highest level of credibility and integrity. In other words, if you read it here you will know it came from the highest ranking officials in the science community. Just as importantly is my association with the astronomical community - which btw detects some 90 percent of bolides coming our way.
Our discussion and my message to you came before two of the events had occurred.
1) Haiti which is near the Puerto Rico Subduction Zone. But note: this event is not the one which has been envisioned. It will be a larger quake measuring in the 9 + magnitude on the east side of Puerto Rico directly along the line of the Subduction Zone. A tsunami will be created and travel northeast towards the US east coast.
2) The closest asteroid ever recorded occurred just days after our interview and notice to the public. It was no more than 24 hours before it was detected.
Now please ... also remember that Carlos and every elder of many ancient tribes I have spoke with or studied have all left this message: "Change is coming, but we are not helpless. We have the power to change the path of our personal and collective journey."
(The audio file is now up on the ECM site)
My personal view is events will happen for a specific reason.
The events to come are not here to 'punish' us; it is here to 'help' us. It will bring us back to a healthy state of community. Perhaps the events are a necessary step directing us back to the pathway of finding "the purpose of the human being."
I also need to say I do not depend on ancient prophecy or prediction as I make my personal decisions for myself and family. I maintain a healthy dependence on science and research. It is when the two come together which directs my attention and choices. Please consider these words.
You can see a list of endorsements for my research from agencies such as NASA, NOAA, European Space Agency (ESA), US Naval Observatory, and Royal Observatory to name a few.
You also know that I am humbled (and maybe just lucky); to be acquainted with highly respected elders of descendants from ancient tribes. You might have heard of a few such as Hopi elder Thomas Banyacya , Chief Arvol Looking Horse, Keeper of the Sacred White Buffalo Calf Pipe and of course Carlos Barrios, Mayan elder of the 'Clan de Aguila' (the Eagle can).
All this to say one thing
... It is important to be discerning with information that is presented to you. What I am about to tell you is uncomfortable; it is also potential dangerous to those who are prone to become overwhelmed or trigger past trauma's. There really is such a thing as "disaster fatigue". Although disaster fatigue is most often directed to the person "in the event", it can also affect those who witness it ... and yes, this means even by television, computer, or newspaper.
Here are the topics we discussed. This is where it gets a little uncomfortable:
Putin Warns Against One World Order As US-China Military Tensions Grow
More earth changes are coming this year. Unusual or larger earthquakes, volcanoes, tsunamis, typhoons.
Nuclear exchange between Pakistan and India
Second more costly phase of economic crash
Near miss asteroid with less than 72 hour notice
"It Has Begun"
was one of the first things Carlos said in our first interview which occurred "before" Haiti. He mentioned it again in our second. I have put the two audios together, putting part of the second interview in the front. Carlos starts with a prayer spoken in the Mayan native tongue. He later explained much of the prayer is to bring harmony, to us as individuals, collectively as a nation, and to mother earth.
"We are out of balance."
We need to say a prayer for the Earth. She is warning us - and we are out of time". Carlos tells us 2010 shows a distinct progression in earth changing events. "There will be more earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, typhoons this year. We need to pray for harmony - This is the purpose of our current transition."
Carlos turned his attention to the Earth's core.
He specifically mentioned "magma". "We need to focus (our attention) to the center of Earth -- we need to watch the magma." He presented it in a way that suggests the Earth's core acts as a barometer (pulse) of actions in the galaxy and (collectively) within each of us.
Carlos went on to say something which grabbed my attention.
"We need to find the purpose of the human being." It was the way he said it, and the context in which it was presented. It's not really new; we have heard the saying for many years: "we are spiritual beings having a human experience." Maybe it is because we are so much closer to experience 'the experience' that it just feels different.
Carlos became unusually emotional at this point. He tells us the elders are sad; "they don't like to speak anymore. The people believe someone will save them, that we will save them. We have lost our sense of personal responsibility, our national responsibility. Many of the people have become more like robots detached from their true selves." The Mayan elders continue to do sacred ceremonies
to bring balance back to the Earth and the people. But he says: "That is not enough; it needs to be all of us. We are greater in numbers." Carlos acknowledges there are people in power who do not want the changes that are coming. "This is why the earth changes are coming; to bring harmony back to the Earth and to us."
BRIDGEWATER TOWNSHIP CALLS UP THE MICHIGAN WOLVERINE MILITIA

At about1100, (4) four militia members from various units were at the rally point, with (3) three more in routeor on stand-by. Super visor Mull guickly put together a command center at the , with hot internet and direct communication with WCSD (Washtenaw County Sheriff Department). Along with Lt. Phillipes, Sgt. Dave Archer of WCSD and James Schiel, a ground foot search was organized.
Obama has suspicious number of letter-writing fans named 'Ellie Light'
Ellie Light sure gets around.
In recent weeks, Light has published virtually identical “Letters to the Editor” in support of President Barack Obama in more than a dozen newspapers.Every letter claimed a different residence for Light that happened to be in the newspaper’s circulation area.“It’s time for Americans to realize that governing is hard work, and that a president can’t just wave a magic wand and fix everything,” said a letter from alleged Philadelphian Ellie Light, that was published in the Jan. 19 edition of The Philadelphia Daily News.
