Let’s lay the blame for plastic where it belongs

In the bigger scheme of things right now plastic isn’t on top of the list of importance by a long way but a recent announcement from our corporation parading as a government is the bold move where no government has gone before, pardon my cynicism … they’re banning … wait for it …

plastic fruit stickers, cutlery, and cotton buds.

It’s a bit like the recent announcement by Countdown that they’ve stopped stocking plastic straws. (Whilst McDs and friends all continue using them). They are the culprits. It is very difficult not to be cynical at this, when one browses the supermarket, everywhere there is plastic. It is so hypocritical. “Excuse me, please stop using this plastic that we’re manufacturing for you. And please buy these bags we’ve made for you.” Used to be we took our own basket to the supermarket … we’ve come such a long way haven’t we? (Not). And now of course it is all backfiring as there is no other country to dump our consumer trash on any more. It was coming wasn’t it and please don’t try and tell me they didn’t know that.

Let’s be honest and remember why we have plastic bags and wrapping in the first place. Step back a few decades, well four decades actually, and we were all toting our groceries home in paper bags provided by the supermarket (that we all are obliged to pay 25 cents each for now) and our meat was wrapped in paper then newspaper. There simply wasn’t much plastic at all. So why did they replace the paper bags with plastic?

That’s simple. And it wasn’t because our mothers, grandparents or whatever begged them to give us plastic bags. A corporation’s bottom line is profit and cost effectiveness. They achieve that by passing the cost on to us whilst convincing us it was our fault in the first place. Watch The Corporation movie (on the Corporations page) and you’ll see what I mean. It’s cost effective for their pockets not the environment you realize. I recall hearing in the ’80s that corporations would one day be controlling governments. It seemed a far cry and yet here we are and they do exactly that. And so nobody will get tough on corporations and to keep us at bay they feed us little snippets of hope like ‘the straws are going’ … ‘we’re banning supermarket bags’ and so on. Hoping we won’t notice the veggies, the meat everything in fact is packed to the hilt with … plastic. Sadly everybody swallows the spin on it.

Let’s just stop accepting the blame for this. They took away the paper & gave us a ton of free plastic however as we know it isn’t free because it costs the environment but as we also now know corporates are really good at kicking cans down the road then telling us it’s our responsibility to pick up the tab. Where once they washed the glass milk and other bottles they replaced those with plastic. They took away the glass containers with marmite & peanut butter etc that we used to keep & use for drinking glasses  and replaced them with plastic as well. We need to go the way of the Bin Inns and bring our own containers again.

The discussion around this wonderful announcement from Jacinda has brought forth some brilliant ideas. One I really like & am considering practicing is to rip the plastic off the said items after leaving the supermarket & dispose of it in their trash. Send it back to where it came from. Instead currently we are obliged to take it home, wash it once empty, sort it into a dozen different categories & transport it all the way to a recycle center if we do not have a kerbside collection. Talk about sustainable practices. Even though our corporate councils (yes they are listed on Dun & Bradstreet as companies) lay claim to sustainable practices. A few of them do it but not all.

Lip service pretty much is the name of that game.

Here is the Jacinda article:

Self-Interested Whims of the Oligarchs: Google and Facebook Kill Access to Alternative and Integrative Medicine

Posted on:

John Weeks

Originally published on www.johnweeks-integrator.com

The blog post to which my attention was called was entitled When Big Brother Went High Tech. The news from energy medicine author Lynn McTaggert jerked attention of the integrative community to a story I’d long anticipated: Google’s censors turned their attention to the still wild political-economical-medical frontier of “alternative medicine”. Osteopath and internet businessman Joseph Mercola reported that 99% of the traffic to his sometimes pugnacious mercola.com “natural health” website was killed. “Integrative medicine” was not spared. Visits to the much more tame Dr. Weil site from that field’s godfather dropped 66%. In an August 2019 e-blast to his list of Minnesota holistic practitioners on Google’s incendiary actions, an integrative leader of 40-years Bill Manahan, MD writes: “I think you will find it pretty scary for those of us in the integrative, alternative, and functional medicine fields.”

It is. McTaggert’s story is a doorway into a sectoral and global hell. The McTaggert piece first reached me from a leader at Consciousness and Healing Initiative for which I service on a communications team. Other readers of the Integrator newsletter also tipped me. The news is stark. Changed Google algorithms cut in half traffic on her e-magazine site What Doctors Don’t Tell You. She reported Mercola’s even more devastating losses while also sharing Mercola’s belief that Google’s additional manual manipulation of search targets cut down additional traffic where the algorithms hadn’t already driven in the knives.

Why? Via associative laws – such as Google’s investment in pharmaceutical solutions – McTaggert puts big pharma at the calamitous keyboard. Manahan’s e-blast shares that others like author Christiane Northrup, MD agree. McTaggert calls it “a massive concerted effort by Big Tech and giant corporations to censor the information you are allowed to see.

“The ability to create such damage to choice, to freedom, and to health has multiple causes. The most powerful has absolutely nothing to do with alternative, complementary or integrative medicine, per se. Nor is it connected to a site’s takes on vaccinations, Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop, the existence of the Biofield or of energy medicine “woo” at any level of science. Nor does it have to do with the internet era, though the web certainly metastasizes its effect.

So the Royals are pressing for population control again – are they volunteering to go first?

Here we have another plea from the Royals pressing another of the NWO Agenda 2030 panic buttons, the other two being climate change (formerly called global warming but it’s not warming) & pollution – and they being the biggest perpetrators of those via geoengineering  & the rape & pillage of all the world’s resources … I read the other day the Amazon forest is being destroyed at the rate of a football field a minute. Do you see any of the so called elite stepping in and stopping that? No & you won’t be any time soon. The Royals should be lining up to be first in the queue for expunging. Why is it ‘us’ who have to go? Think about that.  It’s all a ruse to get you to accept their plan for global government aka all of the above, the jackboot regime disguised as the happy global village. Same as they disguise their rape & pillage carry on with the term ‘sustainable development’. Nothing sustainable is happening and the lies become more obvious by the day.

On topic, please do read this book: Who Owns the World : The Surprising Truth About Every Piece of Land on the Planet  by Kevin Cahill*. Here is Amazon’s blurb on it:

“You don’t have to be a student of geography or cartography to have an interest in the world around you, especially with globalization making our planet seem smaller than ever. Now you can IM someone in Alaska, purchase coffee beans from Timor-Leste, and visit Dubai. But what do we really know about these lands?

WHO OWNS THE WORLD presents the results of the first-ever landownership survey of all 197 states and 66 territories of the world, and reveals facts both startling and eye-opening. You’ll learn that:
–Only 15% of the world’s population lays claim to landownership, and that landownership in too few hands is probably the single greatest cause of poverty.
–Queen Elizabeth II owns 1/6 of the entire land surface on earth (nearly 3 times the size of the U.S.).
–The Lichtenstein royal family is wealthier than the Grimaldis of Monaco.
–80% of the American population is crammed in urban areas.
–The least crowded state is Alaska, with 670 acres per person. The most crowded is New Jersey, with .7 acres per person. –60% of America’s population are property owners. That’s behind the UK (69% homeownership).
–And much, much more! “

With its relevance to contemporary issues and culture, WHO OWNS THE WORLD makes for fascinating reading. Both entertaining and educational, it provides cocktail party conversation for years to come and is guaranteed to change the way you view the U.S. and the world.

Truth is there is enough land, Cahill has calculated, for everybody to own a small piece & subsist on. Not good for the so called elite however as where would be the profit in that? And Elizabeth Windsor (not her real name) owns one sixth of the planet. I expect she needs all of that for her and her family. Think about this… if you were afloat in the ocean after your ship had sunk, squeezed with other survivors into a small lifeboat, and there also swimming toward you to safety is your child, but there is not room enough for anybody else? What would you as a parent do? 

Yes the overpopulation myth is yet another ruse by the non elite who don’t want you to know about it. 

 

Read the post from prepforthat.com

“Population control is probably coming to America. NBC news, the Royal family, and a number of other sources are pushing population control strategies in America. Once thought as only a third-world concept, the idea is gaining traction in the West.

The Royal family’s Prince William, keeping with the family’s tradition of pushing for population control agenda, pushed (you guessed it), population control (here). Here’s the thing, when I posted the Prince William article, there was some negative fan fair with folks making accusations of fear mongering and conspiracy theory. I get it, and I got it. The thing is, however, I’ve been saying for years that the newest liberal agenda is and will be, population control. You can call it the New World Order, however, no matter what you call it, it’s a concept that’s as radioactive as it is terrifying. And more than that, the elitists have begun the process of pushing forth population control morality. And one thing is clear, after today, you can no longer call it a conspiracy theory.

More ‘sustainable’ lies – 208 million litres of NZ’s water a year for $470

It’s called ‘sustainable development’ … sustaining the profits of multinational corporations. It has little if anything to do with conservation. The big LIE.

teaomaori.news

“A South Island iwi hope their freshwater spring will gain environmental protection after a local council granted a water bottling company consent to take 208 million litres a year for $470.

Already in the Tasman district, four water bottling companies have consent to take water from the area – at more than 427 million litres at a cost of $943.

In 2005, Tasman District Council gave Kahurangi Virgin Water Ltd consent to extract water near Te Waikoropupu Springs, which has one of the clearest freshwater in the world.

The company has yet to take any water from the sacred site and have applied for an extension. Local iwi Ngāti Tama was initially involved with the original resource consent but were not consulted about the extension and took the council to the High Court.

Ngāti Tama spokesperson Margaret Little says the springs need to be preserved and their court action was funded by the iwi’s Treaty settlement.

“The settlement has given us the financial backing to take them to court whereas before it would have been really difficult,” Little says.

Earlier this month, the Government announced it will consider giving the springs the highest level of conservation protection and grant it the same status as a national park.

Swedish corporations are now implanting their workers with microchips

From prepforthat.com

Swedish corporations are now implanting their workers with microchips. Employees are taking to social media and posting the surgical procedure photos.

Swedish medical staff surgically implants the chips into the area between the thumb and index finger. The goal is to offer Swedes more convenience in everyday life. Earlier this month, we reported that U.K. companies are beginning to ask that their employees be microchipped similar to the Swedes.

Many Swedish companies ask employees to voluntarily sign up for a microchip implant. And workers are accepting the offers and volunteering to have the procedures done. Of course, one must consider the ramifications of such “volunteer-based” microchipping. I’ll get to that in a bit.

About 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year

And why would this be any different in NZ Kiwis? Same drug companies. Same medical model. Same addressing of symptoms not root causes as is generally the case.

From herbs-info.com

A damning Harvard University report has advised that according to the European Commission, about 328,000 patients in the U.S. and Europe die from prescription drugs each year – making prescription drugs the 4th highest cause of death, on a par with stroke.

We could get into legal trouble if we advised you to go against the recommendations of your doctor; however we can advise you to be as informed as possible about the risks involved in taking prescription meds.

According to the World Health Organization, the pharmaceutical industry is worth 300 billion dollars annually – with an additional hundred million expected to add to the value in the next three years. A third of this entire multi-billion-dollar market is controlled by ten of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. According to CMR International, a partner of Thomas Reuters, global pharmaceutical sales reached one trillion dollars in 2014 and will be booming to 1.3 trillion by 2018.

It goes without saying that this is big business – but like every big business, there is a dark side as well. Can we really trust the research – seeing as the same companies selling the pills are funding many of the medical journals? And then we have the issue of doctors receiving kickbacks for prescribing certain drugs, after being “educated” on the benefits of the drugs by pharma salesmen.

Take a look at this list of seven of the most dangerous prescription drug typesand see how they can hurt you. [1][2]

#1: Sleeping Pills (OTC and prescribed)

The use of sleeping pills has been associated with an increased risk factor for stroke. A study published by Petrov, et. al. in 2014 revealed that over-the-counter and prescription sleeping pills increased a person’s risk for stroke, independently and beyond any of the other known risk factors like blood pressure, personal history of heart disease, and vices like smoking and drinking alcohol. Isn’t it worrying that compared to all other factors that place a person at risk for stroke, sleeping pills top that list? [3]

The ongoing global geoengineering assault has placed our planet under a state of siege. The thriving world we have formerly known is no more, we are accelerating at blinding speed toward a completely new and unimaginably challenging reality. What can we do to expose and halt the weather warfare assault? The ongoing criminal climate engineering operations are exposed in this PowerPoint presentation. It was given at the Northern California event titled “Climate Engineering, Government Criminality, And Vaccine Dangers”. Climate engineering is mathematically the most destructive form of anthropogenic activity ever unleashed on the biosphere. Geoengineering programs must also be considered biological warfare due to the highly toxic materials that are being dispersed into our skies. The fight to expose and halt climate engineering is a fight for life, nothing less. All are needed to help sound the alarm, sharing credible data from a credible source is essential to the effort. Make your voice heard while it can still make a difference.

In bed with the world’s biggest polluters the WWF is also accused of committing violent crimes against indigenous peoples, contributing to 20 million ‘conservation’ refugees

Not new, as is from 2014. Stories like this deserve to be shared over & over lest the revelations be forgotten. I stopped donating to this cause long ago after I learned some of the ugly truth.

World Wildlife Fund’s hidden role in spreading harmful corporate practices is revealed in new book

Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Shell, HSBC, Cargill, BP, Alcoa and Maine Harvest have reportedly all benefited from the WWF’s green label while continuing business as usual … Wilfried Huismann

NaturalNews) Overcoming adversity by piercing through the corporate fabric in which the world’s corporations are banded together, PandaLeaks – The Dark Side of the WWF exposes the ugly underbelly of the planet’s largest conservation group.

Written by award-winning German journalist and filmmaker Wilfried Huismann, the book almost didn’t make it to print after the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) fought tooth and nail to stop its sale. The group’s efforts to stop the book’s publication, which included a massive campaign of threats and a series of lawsuits, fell short of preventing the controversial report from reaching the market.

Two years of on-the-ground investigative research reveals a number of horrid, and incredibly disappointing, facts about the WWF. While earlier skepticism has surrounded the conservation group for years, their unethical and hypocritical tactics have not yet been exposed in depth until the release of Huismann’s recent research.

The book accuses the WWF of “selling its soul” to corporations in exchange for their donations, as well as forging alliances with powerful, non-sustainable businesses that are destroying the planet and “greenwashing” their operations under the conservation group’s label.

New book blows the whistle on WWF’s cozy relationship with Big Business

Originally released under the name The Silence of the Pandas in 2012, the book became a German bestseller before being recently published in English following a series of injunctions and court cases, according to The Guardian.

Monsanto, Coca-Cola, Shell, HSBC, Cargill, BP, Alcoa and Maine Harvest have reportedly all benefited from the WWF’s green label while continuing business as usual, said Huismann. While publicly condemning such corporations, behind closed doors the WWF has set up “round tables” of industrialists on hot commodities such as palm oil, timber, sugar, soy, biofuels and cocoa.

An ethnic group residing in the Congo, the Baka people, say they’ve been forced from their ancestral lands in the name of “conservation.”

“WWF is a willing service provider to the giants of the food and energy sectors, supplying industry with a green, progressive image… On the one hand it protects the forest; on the other it helps corporations lay claim to land not previously in their grasp. WWF helps sell the idea of voluntary resettlement to indigenous peoples,” said Huismann.

WWF involved in the beatings and torture of indigenous peoples in the name of “conservation”

An elite club consisting of 1,001 of the world’s richest people, including philanthropists, industrialists and upper-class naturalists, are reportedly operating out of the WWF, which was set up more than 50 years ago by Prince Philip and Prince Bernhart of the Netherlands. This elite club serves as an “old boys’ network,” holding “influence in the corridors of global and corporate and policy-making power.”

Aside from being in bed with some of the world’s biggest polluters, the WWF has also been accused of committing crimes against indigenous peoples by funding their “displacement” and “cultural extinction,” contributing to more than 20 million people who are now classified as “conservation refugees.”

CIA Agent Whistleblower Speaks Out About Climate Engineering, Vaccination Dangers & 911

At a very important public awareness event that was recently held in Northern California, Mr. Shipp gave an extremely informative and compelling presentation on numerous horrific ongoing government crimes. The subjects Kevin Shipp addressed included climate engineering, the 911 false flag inside job, vaccination dangers/cover-up, and the governments total persecution of anyone who dares to tell the truth about rampant government tyranny. The paradigm we have all known has been built on deception and the dark agendas of the global power structure. The courage Kevin Shipp has shown by doing his best to expose government criminality and tyranny serves as a stellar example to all of us. We desperately need other individuals in government agencies and the US military to follow Kevin’s lead . If we have any chance of stopping the completely out of control criminal cabal that currently runs our country and much of the world, we must all make our voices heard, we must all join the battle for the greater good.
