Following reports of people developing blood clots shortly after receiving a dose of AstraZeneca’s COVID-19 vaccine, Germany, France, Italy and Spain have joined a growing list of countries to suspend use of the drug, pending a full investigation. While the decision to pause the rollout of the vaccine is highly disputed – the World Health Organization and the European Medicines Agency have all advised against it – there’s no argument this couldn’t have happened at a worse time.
People who fail to get a Covid-19 vaccination could be banned from using public transport in France, according to a draft law sparking angry protests from opposition politicians on Tuesday.
Prime Minister Jean Castex on Monday got his cabinet’s backing for a bill that is designed to provide a legal framework for dealing with health crises, including the coronavirus pandemic.
According to the text, which will now be submitted to parliament, a negative Covid test or proof of a “preventative treatment, including the administration of a vaccine” could be required for people to be granted “access to transport or to some locations, as well as certain activities”.
The government’s vaccination campaign is to start on Sunday, and officials already face widespread resistance to a treatment developed in record time since the outbreak hit Europe early this year.
Just two weeks after it was announced China was developing biologically enhanced super soldiers, France has joined the fray in creating terminator troops that can be “bred to kill” according to a new report.
Last week, France gave the go-ahead for augmented soldiers, and some fear the super troopers could be the new norm in the recent future.
The French seek to improve “physical, cognitive, perceptive and psychological capacities,” and could allow for location tracking or connectivity with weapons systems and other soldiers. Among the ministry’s research were drugs to keep troops awake for long periods of time and combat stress, and even surgery to improve hearing.
The new species of augmented soldiers, dubbed “homo robocopus” could also have altered DNA to give them enhanced speed and strength as well as robotics.
As has been long said, whilst they promise the vaccine for the CV won’t be mandatory … Plan B has always been as evidenced right from the start, ‘no jab no job, no school, no travel’ and so on. As we now see in Germany also … no emergency health services. They’ve gone straight for the jugular, no pun intended. May as well call it mandatory because what we have here is virtually mandatory house arrest. France however has experienced a backlash but as we know & as David Icke describes it … the ‘totalitarian tiptoe’ ensues. Gradualism. They slow it down a bit but either way they will get there. EWR
A radical bill proposed by the French Government that would see unvaccinated people refused basic services such as public transport has been put on ice after a massive backlash.
The proposed law mandates that citizens have proof of a negative COVID test or “preventative treatment, including the administration of a vaccine” in order to “access transport or to some locations, as well as certain activities.”
However, the government has been forced to delay the legislation after angry protests.
French Health Minister Olivier Véran publicly postponed the bill in an announcement Tuesday evening.
“Because there needs to be trust for the French people to go and get vaccinated of their own free will, because we’re still in a state of sanitary crisis … the government won’t present the text [to the National Assembly] for several months, before we’re out of the crisis,” Véran stated.
The bill was lambasted by political figures across the spectrum, with conservative MP Fabien Di Filippo labelling it “vaccine blackmail.”
RN leader Marine Le Pen branded the vaccine measure “essentially totalitarian.”
“In a backhanded way, this bill does not aim to make vaccinations mandatory, but will prevent anybody who doesn’t comply from having a social life,” she said.
RN party spokesman Sebastien Chenu called the plan a “health dictatorship,” while centrist senator Nathalie Goulet said the draft was “an attack on public freedoms.”
Guillaume Peltier, deputy leader of the center-right LR party, warned that the law would allow the government to “get all the power to suspend our freedoms without parliamentary control.”
France’s vaccination program, set to get underway on Sunday, will not be mandatory, but a majority of 55% of citizens say they will not get the shot.
As we previously highlighted, France has imposed some of the strictest lockdown measures in Europe, with citizens having to fill out a form every time they leave their home.

Get set for more of these examples, the Australian one above dates back to August.
I re-titled this video lest folk overlook it & the info it contains. Putting an armed guard around a product you will see, creates immediate demand. They in effect did this with potatoes which apparently folk were not greatly interested in back in the day. Who would’ve thought? Anyway, do watch & learn. They convince us in other ways that some things we simply ‘must have’. It’s from the Corbett Report YT channel. Great info to make you think & consider when you make those important choices regarding your health particularly. EWR
corbettreport 459K subscribers SHOW NOTES: https://www.corbettreport.com/?p=35273 Do you know the story of how the French public were tricked into desiring the potato? No? Well then, grab your forks and dig in! This week’s edition of #PropagandaWatch is served, so get it while it’s piping hot.
Hitler would be envious I’m sure. Total surveillance & control all from your handy smart phone. Two articles here updating the papers requirement from the esteemed authorities to leave your house. Getting very Orwellian isn’t it? NZ is following suit with Police checkpoints over Easter we’ve just heard. In case you dare to head off somewhere different and cater to the state of your non-essential mental health. EWR
“Taking exercise is one of the official reasons that people are allowed out of their homes during the lockdown – along with trips to buy food, medical appointments, urgent family reasons and trips to and from work for people whose work is essential and cannot be done from home.”
Outdoor physical activity will be restricted to a radius of 2 kilometres from home during the coronavirus lockdown, the French government said on Thursday, while cycling is completely banned.
This is a bit like accounts of pre war Germany isnt it … passes required to move about & alone only? Also intriguing that these officials are wearing no protective gear to keep them safe from the deadly virus? My thoughts… always practice the precautionary principle & stay safe … EWR
“If you want to exercise you have to live in the vicinity, and must do so on your own, can’t go out together! Can only have extra person in car if they have no license, or have no car and you’re helping, or they are disabled.”
A reliable source who lives in France has alerted us to what’s going on both there and in most of Europe right now. Not persons to panic they say (normally “glass half full or probably overflowing”) right now they report that their glass is shattered!
“It’s really scary here…the entire country…over 80 million of us are on lock down in our homes. We CANNOT leave our houses without a government issued permission form, and that’s only to get essential food or medical supplies. There are fines for not carrying the form and it’s one form for each person. You need a new form for EVERY time you want to leave your home. It’s basically a signed attestation by you of your purpose for being found outside. You cannot even walk your dog outside your property without it!!!
Everything is closed, there is no panic buying…there is nothing to buy!!!
There are 100,000 police and Gendarmes enforcing this. Some Hotels have been taken over by the army to use as hospitals. Toilet paper is the least of our worries…we have no printer ink to print the form to allow us to leave the house to try to get some from the only store that’s allowed to open, which is the supermarket!! We’re fine and have a good network around us and a full pantry, but many aren’t.
Sorry to be alarmist but you seriously don’t want to see NZ like this!!?
If you want to exercise you have to live in the vicinity, and must do so on your own, can’t go out together! Can only have extra person in car if they have no license, or have no car and you’re helping, or they are disabled.
Also as of today the fines went up for breaking the law, it’s now €135 And €350! (Every 100 euro is about $190NZ).”
Note: Police are recruited on a local basis and are paid by the town they work in (except special police). Gendarmes are a military force and are recruited on a county or national level.

The attacks continued last week. On Sunday, vigilantes in Crest fired two rounds into the speed camera on the RD538 in Crest. The device had just been installed four days earlier. On Saturday, the speed camera in Fitou was set on fire. Yellow spraypaint blinded the speed camera on the ring road in Toulouse, with multiple cameras covered throughout the area on Wednesday. On January 26, the turret speed camera on the RD944 in Molosmes was cut down just three days after it had been installed. A speed camera site was replaced by an impromptu art exhibit last week on the RD13 near Velle-le-Chatel. The six-foot-tall “Rat d’Art” was put in place on January 25.

Last weekend saw French people stage huge protests against the Macron government’s plans to slash their pension entitlements.
It was the 59th consecutive weekend of such protests.
December has also seen the country in a state of ‘grève interprofessionel’ – a general strike – across a wide range of professions, from the nations’s rail-workers to the Paris Opéra’s ballet dancers.
The scale of the protests and strike have been huge, with around 800,000 workers participating in the strike and massive crowds on the streets in Paris and elsewhere. And the government’s response has descended into brutality:

Following the recent bans on the use of glyphosate-based herbicides by cities and institutions in the U.S., including Key West, Los Angeles, the University of California and Miami, Sustainable Pulse decided to research which countries around the world have banned or restricted the use of the world’s most used herbicide.
This research has led to the discovery that there is a growing swell of government level support worldwide for bans on glyphosate-based herbicides for both health and environmental reasons.
17 countries have now banned or restricted the use of this carcinogenic herbicide.
Previous research by Sustainable Pulse on the number of countries that have banned GM Crops has reached millions of people and we look forward to our latest research reaching an even wider audience. Sustainable Pulse welcomes additions or edits to the list below from readers and experts from around the Globe.
Malawi: Malawi’s Ministry of Agriculture, Irrigation and Water Development announced the suspension of import permits for glyphosate in April 2019.
Vietnam: Vietnam announced that it banned the import of all glyphosate-based herbicides with in March 2019 following a cancer trial verdict from San Francisco
Sri Lanka: In 2015 a full import ban on all glyphosate-based herbicides was put in place by the then newly elected President Maithripala Sirisena. This ban was partly lifted in July 2018 but only for use on tea and rubber plantations.
A French court has ordered the removal of the controversial Linky electricity smart meters from 13 homes, for medical reasons.
The tribunal de grande instance (TGI or the civil court) of Tours considered the case of 121 “anti-Linky” complainants, and threw out 108 of the claims. The remaining 13 were accepted, with the court conceding a possible link between their medical complaints and their Linky smart meters.
One included a seven-year-old child living in Tours, who was – the court said – in “a state of chronic fatigue” and having “difficulty sleeping”, as proven in a medical note, “which could be linked to the Linky meter”.
The court demanded that in the case of these 13 individuals, the Linky meter be removed, and the households be delivered electricity without the device.
Lawyer for the complainants, Arnaud Durand, said that he would push for compensation for “the people who will not be able to live at home”.
In June 2017, medical safety agency L’Agence Nationale de Sécurité Sanitaire (Anses) concluded that the meters could be linked to some “health doubts” – including the possible consequences of exposure to electromagnetic fields.
These have not yet been resolved, according to Me Durand.
He is now hoping to bring more cases against the installation of the Linky meter throughout France.
The country has already seen 22 cases brought to court, including in Rennes, Toulouse, and Bordeaux. Most claims were thrown out, except for a few complainants who cited “electro-sensitivity” to the meters.
The Linky was first rolled out by electricity distribution network company Enedis in 2015. The meters enable electricity use to be measured remotely, so users are charged without a need for a manual reading by the homeowner or an engineer.
Homeowners are also expected to save up to €50 per year on their bills.

A must read & watch! The Yellow Vests, State sanctioned Police violence on unarmed Yellow Vest protesters, including the aged, disabled & children. What mainstream media will not (ever) be telling you. This is from an independent journalist on the ground.
This is written from a Christian perspective. If you don’t agree with the view point & want to discuss that please go to the source at the link.
That’s right: Before investigators had even been cleared to enter the smoldering ruins of the Western World’s most iconic Christian symbol, they had already ruled out the possibility of arson.
I am not saying that any person or group should be blamed for this fire without proof. What I am saying, is that the French government’s absurdly quick action in determining the cause makes a mockery of the concept of an honest investigation. Such malfeasance in carrying out due diligence could easily backfire.
Without an honest and transparent investigation, people will always look at the burning of Notre Dame as a monumental conspiracy. Fill in the blank as to who you want to make responsible for the devastation because the French wimped out and declared it an accident before any investigative techniques could have realistically been employed.

Thanks to Julie Williams for this link. The presenter Polly has a YT channel with much thought provoking material. This particular video is in my opinion an excellent overview of what is going on in France right now with the Yellow Vests movement. As she points out media is not reporting what is really going on & if you watch the video the YVs themselves accuse them of lying. No surprises there with MSM. Then there are the Police suicides which are not being reported. French Police taking their own lives? That speaks volumes. There have been so far 8 protester deaths with thousands injured & growing. She speaks also of a man who went in to defend Police harassment of his pacifist wife, who when later charged, was given the financial support of the YVs for legal costs. The establishment then froze that bank account containing the funds so they could not access them. Now this is fascism and Polly refers to a survey funded by CEs supporting their belief that corporate CEs have the means by which to bring about order. This she says, is a fascist takeover by corporates & is fitting with the ‘rules based World Order’ as opposed to ‘law based’. Corporations can’t make laws but they do make rules & they have the means already to enforce them. Take away people’s ability to defend themselves by freezing their bank accounts, or destroy their livelihood by firing them or closing their bank accounts. This has already happened in NZ historically.

PARIS, France – As reported by the Clover Chronicle, disturbing footage from France is now showing retreating protesters being shot in the head by French police.
The footage, uploaded by British journalist Mark Braithwaite, is very disturbing: In it, one can clearly see unarmed Yellow Vest protesters who are retreating while being fired upon by French police, one of whom scores a headshot on an unarmed, retreating protester:
Many reports coming out of France now indicate that these “police” officers are not French gendarmes at all, but actually German/EU military forces who have been hired by Macron’s regime to enforce their totalitarian laws and to crack down on the protesters, who are seeking a reduction in taxes and a reduction in net migration which is draining their welfare state and lowering the wages of French citizens, leaving honest, hardworking Frenchmen unable to feed their families.
Leftist talking heads claim that the alleged Yellow Vest Bank Run will have no actual effect on the banks: If this were true, however, the French regime would have no reason to hire German/EU mercenaries and dress them up as gendarmes to oppress the French citizens.
This theory that the “police” are not gendarmes, but are German/EU mercenaries, makes sense when one considers that, while the “police” are allegedly using less-than-lethal rubber bullets, they are firing directly at protesters heads, including at their eyes. While rubber bullets are technically less-than-lethal, a direct headshot is capable of killing someone. A well-trained German/EU soldier would certainly know this and it seems they are using this knowledge to full effect. Further, there is no reason whatsoever to fire upon an unarmed protester who is in the process of retreating, except to damage them and demoralize them and attempt to break their spirits.
Make no mistake, Frenchman: these “elites” will not do good for you. They would rather see you dead than see you uplifted. They are willing to kill you themselves to destroy your agenda.

“Give up sovereignty”? … familiar wording isn’t it? Just like the variations on New World Order, World Order, Order …. these people think we are all thick. Arnold Toynbee was using that line back in the 1930s:
“We are at present working discreetly, with all our might, to wrest this mysterious force called sovereignty out of the clutches of the local nation states of the world. And all the time we are denying with our lips what we are doing with our hands.” Arnold Toynbee – International Affairs, p.809, November 1931
The plan is moving along.
“Nation states must today be prepared to give up their sovereignty”, according to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who told an audience in Berlin that sovereign nation states must not listen to the will of their citizens when it comes to questions of immigration, borders, or even sovereignty.
No this wasn’t something Adolf Hitler said many decades ago, this is what German Chancellor Angela Merkel told attendants at an event by the Konrad Adenauer Foundation in Berlin. Merkel has announced she won’t seek re-election in 2021 and it is clear she is attempting to push the globalist agenda to its disturbing conclusion before she stands down.
“In an orderly fashion of course,” Merkel joked, attempting to lighten the mood. But Merkel has always had a tin ear for comedy and she soon launched into a dark speech condemning those in her own party who think Germany should have listened to the will of its citizens and refused to sign the controversial UN migration pact:
“There were [politicians] who believed that they could decide when these agreements are no longer valid because they are representing The People”.
“[But] the people are individuals who are living in a country, they are not a group who define themselves as the [German] people,” she stressed.
Merkel has previously accused critics of the UN Global Compact for Safe and Orderly Migration of not being patriotic, saying “That is not patriotism, because patriotism is when you include others in German interests and accept win-win situations”.
Her words echo recent comments by the deeply unpopular French President Emmanuel Macron who stated in a Remembrance Day speech that “patriotism is the exact opposite of nationalism [because] nationalism is treason.”
The French president’s words were deeply unpopular with the French population and his approval rating nosedived even further after the comments.
Macron, whose lack of leadership is proving unable to deal with growing protests in France, told the Bundestag that France and Germany should be at the center of the emerging New World Order.
“The Franco-German couple [has]the obligation not to let the world slip into chaos and to guide it on the road to peace”.
“Europe must be stronger… and win more sovereignty,” he went on to demand, just like Merkel, that EU member states surrender national sovereignty to Brussels over “foreign affairs, migration, and development” as well as giving “an increasing part of our budgets and even fiscal resources”.
On France’s yellow vests topic … some folk have suggested & I see videos along the same lines that this is a false flag. I’m undecided but certainly things are happening in Europe & certainly folk globally have been feeling the ‘austerity’ measures of the global banking predators. Note the so called elite are well versed in fomenting wars & strife in order to achieve their ends. Witness the quote by Henry Kissinger below here, taken from the article. As with the nine eleven false flag, they have an agenda going down. From the years I’ve been following the activities of the cabal or so called elite (and they are not elite by any stretch of the imagination) is that their end game is total global control and declaring martial law is likely a part of that. Create dissent & foment trouble then show up with the armoured vehicles & riot control global police to bring ‘peace’. Hence the appearance of the military in neighbourhood streets over the past ten or so years. They have been gradually acclimatizing us to seeing this. War exercises / drills and war games everywhere with troops from around the globe. Whether or not this particular event is intentionally fomented by the powers that be or is really as it appears I do not know. They can oppress people for a long time with their monetary tactics & sooner or later folk rise up in desperation. This is exactly what they want. It is why they do not want us off grid, finding cheap sources of energy, growing our own food for free. Preferably we are to be buying their fake food, drinking their polluted water, buying into their pharmaceutical cash cow. Control. Watch what transpires anyway and draw your own conclusions.

ARMORED vehicles bearing the European Union flag have stormed into Paris as protesters bring the city to a standstill.
Riots have been raging across the city for the last few weeks as anger about the high cost of living and increased fuel taxes threaten to topple Emmanuel Macron’s Government.
Shocking scenes today saw riot cops confronting the so-called Gilet Jaunes – after the high-vis yellow vests they have worn.
But one particular video has caused a stir after it was posted on social media.
It shows heavily armoured vehicles driving into the city as small fires – lit by furious protesters – rage around them.
But rather than bearing the French Tricolore flag, the vehicles bore the distinct starred EU flag, which critics have said is a sign an EU Army is drawing closer to existence.
Furious Twitter users have also said it is a sign the bloc, which the UK voted to leave in 2016, is prepared to crush any dissent in any of its member states.
One person commented: “The Euro flag disturbs me on vehicles”.
Another wrote: “With the European Union flag on!!!”
You can watch the video below:
And one outraged person shared a picture of President Macron alongside a quote attributed to him: “We need more Europe”.
Brits also jumped on the thread, claiming the vehicles and flag give an insight into a future in an expanding European Union.
One UK user said: “Paris gives us the first glimpse of the future under EU rule.”
“The planed army is being put in place to repress any citizens that dare to question the superstate agenda.”
“Trust me, you saw it here first. On the streets of Paris 8/12/2018.”
OLD 1080 STOCK SOLUTION, DDT, CHEMICALS GO OFF IN A SHIP TO FRANCE?!
When it’s not being sprayed round the Palmerston North Landfill, that is. What happens if the ship sinks?!
George Robinson has worked in the pest control industry all his life. When he left the Manawatu/Wanganui (Horizons) Regional Council he had a gagging order put on him, but the time period is now up.
This is the story he told me, and I first posted it in January, 2017 :
They used to use (up to 2008-2009 that he knows of) 20% 1080 stock solution and dilute it to a field solution to put it on the green-dyed carrots, for rabbits. He said they had back packs and had it running down their arms, legs, backs….. They used to find dead birds everywhere, blackbirds especially. They were told it all dissolved in water and broke down.
They were sent to conferences run by NZ Pest Management Officers’ Institute. George says “I believe it was the Food Safety Authority that policed the regulations then”. He remembers one where Charles Eason (now CEO of the Cawthron Institute, but formerly senior manager with Landcare Research and a Professor at Lincoln University) spoke and told them “three pisses and the 1080 is gone from your system”.
They had a big holding tank and the stock solution could be held for up to 7 or 8 years before it was no good, but a man from a waste removal transport company would come along and pump out the holding tank. He would take it down to the Palmerston North landfill and spread it all over the ground, driving round in a circle. George says this guy was a straight-up sort of chap who was amazed that he was given permission to do it.
There was a facility in France where some of the stuff collected went – old farm chemicals such as DDT, etc. It goes on a ship which “must be a very toxic shipload”, George said. (I have been told recently that that facility in France is no longer used… I’m not sure where it goes now – Note 29 July, 2018).
He said that at present, Horizons are using Brodificoum on pastureland amongst stock, for possum control. He said it has killed stock but that the worst thing is that it accumulates in the liver and remains in the sheeps’ livers for 36 months. He said Horizons are using the High Strength version.
He himself has a CSL (Controlled Substance Licence).
He says Horizons must be one of the biggest users of Brodificoum. He rang Affco to see if they tested and they said they did random testing, and the Ministry of Primary Industries also assured him they did random testing. He said to them ” Why don’t you test the stock from the paddocks where you use Brodificoum?” but they didn’t want to know!
He said the Ministry of Health used to police the regulations but now that duty has gone to the Ministry of Primary Industries.
He said Horizons have a whole lot of operations, all doing the same thing – killing rats and possums. He said they will be killing birds as well and that the sheep and other livestock “hoover it up”. He said the bait stations are 1.8 metres off the ground, but the deer and cattle can reach them, and the possums are messy eaters and get it all over the ground, so the sheep can get it too.
George left Horizons because he was arguing with them about their 10 year plan for Brodifacoum pest control, and says he was forced out because he was against it.
He said the Greater Wellington Council is using Brodifacoum too. They used it on Tawaiti Station (a safari hunting operation on the East Coast). It killed a few deer and as they were going to sell some, they thought they had better test them for Brodifacoum. They found so much Brodifacoum in them that they shot around 70 deer and burnt the carcasses!

As the blame game over the alleged chemical attack in Syria escalates ahead of what is expected to be an imminent, if contained, air strike campaign by the US, UK and/or France against Syria, on Friday morning, Russia’s foreign minister Sergey Lavrov said Moscow had “irrefutable evidence” that the attack – which allegedly killed more than 40 people in an April 7 chemical weapons strike on the former rebel outpost of Douma -was staged with the help of a foreign secret service.
“We have irrefutable evidence that this was another staged event…
From Press For Truth. What you won’t hear on mainstream about the latest attacks on Syria.
The United States Air Force has confirmed its intention to have the world-renowned F-16 Fighting Falcon Jet Demonstration Team attend Wanaka from the Misawa Air Force base in Japan. Also displaying at the Airshow will be the C-17 Globemaster Demonstration Team out of Hawaii. Both the F-16s and the C-17 will operate out of Christchurch International Airport for the duration of the Airshow. Christchurch Airport is to host the Americans on the ground as according to the airshow organisers they’re unable to land at Wanaka. The RNZAF will help out with flying members of the US contingent through to the Airshow at various times over the weekend say the show’s organisers.
The timing of the visit which can expect aircraft to fly in ahead of the show coincides with the visit of former President Barack Obama and a month ahead of Hillary Clinton’s visit organized by the US Chamber of Commerce and US Business Council, the organization heavily involved in lobbying for the TPPA and believed to be in discussion regarding the reentry of the US into the treaty following the next American election (thought Trump hinted at the re-entry of USA into TPPA at Davos in Janaury this year). Therefore potentially the aircraft may also be participating in the anticipated visit by Obama to the South Island following the sighting of private jets, used in the advanced Secret Serivce of Bill Clinton during APEC 1999, in Dunedin earlier this month.
The American aircraft will not only ensure the biggest ever line up of modern military aircraft at the Wanaka airshow but the RNZAF intends to have one of the largest turnouts of its aircraft types at the Airshow. This is in addition to other Five Eyes (the defacto military arm of the TPPA) members attending the show including the Australians who are sending a Spartan transport aircraft along with Hawk Jets while the French are coming with the CASA transport jet.
Wanaka is currently also the site of a NASA facility funded by the US military, one of several facilities to pop up or expand using equipment built by known military contractors, these include the expanded Waihopai facility in Blenheim, Rocket lab in Gisborne, a private facility however funded by the US Navy, expanded tracking facilities in Bluff, among other known or suspected sites upgraded or added to in the past few years.
Further the visit by contemporary military aircraft at this year’s air show is not the only time we have seen an influx of Five Eyes military aircraft to New Zealand.
On August 3 2017,” New Zealand Defense Minister Mark Mitchell confirmed that Singapore’s fighter jets would be participating in an upcoming military exercise between the two countries. The news came as the two sides consider options for basing these aircraft in one of the country’s largest airfields for training as part of their broader effort to further their military cooperation in the coming years”. (Ohakea will also be basing a Singapore cyber intelligence unit and comes at the time Five Eyes is using Information Dominance warfare to suppress dissenting voices on social media).
Singapore is believed to have left equipment when their intelligence, cyber intelligence and artillery trained here during Operation Rolling Thunder while the USA left helicopters and other equipment here during Operation Koru in 2015. These exercises mark an escalated presence by Five Eyes security forces since 2011 including several visits by the US marines based in Hawaii. Our sources suggest this includes building barracks for the Marines (at this stage able to house 300 soldiers) in Waiouru for permanent “winter training”.
In January 2017, Singapore and New Zealand officials discussed stepping up cooperation through various ways. One of these opportunities had been for Singapore to set up a pilot training base at Ohakea Air Base, New Zealand’s third largest airfield, recently subject to a $2 billion dollar upgrade, as the land-scarce city state continues to look for other partners that can provide room for it to train its armed forces.
In February 2017 two Singapore F-15s were at the Ohakea Air Base for celebrations commemorating the 80th anniversary of the Royal New Zealand Air Force. And in June, when New Zealand’s air force chief Tony Davies paid a visit to Singapore, he viewed a static display of the F-15 fighter aircraft at Paya Lebar Air Base.
On August 3, Mitchell, the defense minister, announced that a Republic of Singapore Air Force (RSAF) training exercise hosted by the Royal New Zealand Air Force would take place at Ohakea Air Force base from 30 August to 25 September. Jacinda Adern and Winston Peters who have both confirmed their commitment to both the TPPA and the Five Eyes security alliance have yet to suggest this proposal or the 20 billion earmarked under national will be scrapped under their administration.
This month Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said her ministers were working to get an exemption for New Zealand from the US’ imposition of tariffs on steel and aluminium. This supports the Postman’s claims last month that the current trade war and aluminum tariffs would be used by the USA to reinstate it self in the TPPA and have the currently suspended TPPA provision reinstated. The Tiwai smelter employs over 3000* people and is the backbone of Southland economy which generates over 20% pf the country’s gross domestic product.
Adern told reporters New Zealand had a strong case for an exemption because of its “long defense and security relationship with the United States stating New Zealand was clearly not an intended target of the tariffs, given its steel exports to the US were small. Ardern stated New Zealand’s relationship was similar to Australia’s in many ways and Australia had been given the exemption. Both New Zealand and Australia are ‘five eyes’ intelligence partners with the US.

Sustainable Pulse has been made aware of a letter sent on December 19 by the Ministers of Environment or Agriculture of France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Malta and Greece to the European Commission calling for a new study on the carcinogenic potential of glyphosate and also a study to identify alternatives to the World’s most used herbicide.
The letter was sent to the European Commission by Nicolas Hulot, Minister for ecologic and inclusive transition (France), Denis Ducarme, Federal Minister for Middle classes, SMEs, Agriculture and Social inclusion (Belgium) Carole Dieschbourg, Minister for the Environment (Luxemburg) Josè A. Herrera, Minister for the Environment (Malta) Dejan Zidan, Minister for Agriculture (Slovenia) and Evangelos Apostolo, Minister of Agriculture (Greece).
The letter states;
“The renewal of the authorization of glyphosate for 5 years was voted during the appeal committee of November 27th. While taking note of this vote, we, Ministers of Environment or Agriculture of France, Belgium, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Malta and Greece underline our concerns about the risks associated with the use of products containing this substance. As a matter of fact, a European citizen’s initiative signed by more than one million people called for a ban of this substance.
The European Parliament has expressed its support for the adoption of necessary measures to phase out the active substance glyphosate in the European Union by 15 December 2022 at the latest. The European Parliament also asked for the extension of specific restrictions of use of glyphosate for weeding and pre-harvest desiccation. We wish to recall that our countries are in favor of the ban of these uses, which are the main sources of residues that can be found in food.
I’m reblogging this article from 2014 to remind us all of the evidence. WHO some twelve months or so ago decided that glyphosate was probably a carcinogen. That got everybody frantically spreading the word however the probably has now given them a convenient little out for later in my opinion anyway… going by what has since happened, that being the major flip flop they’ve done. So … to recap, they (IARC) look at the myriad of independent research and decide on the probably carcinogenic scenario (yes rats fed very diluted glyphosate and GE corn for two years grew enormous tumours all over their bodies) then a year or so later do an about turn. Even if their current conclusions are correct they don’t inspire much trust in their processes to have done a major flip flop like that within a year. And remember, first up after the Séralini experiment Monsanto went into debunk mode by discrediting the Professor’s choice of rat as not being the correct type as in that particular rat is supposedly prone to tumours anyway. All the links to that info are on our Glyphosate pages (the independent research etc) and a brief google search will tell you that you can relax and start spraying everything with Roundup again because yes it’s perfectly safe. After all it is in the GM food you are eating that you don’t know about because it’s so safe they don’t need to label it for you. Please do yourself a favour and watch carefully Professor Séralini’s evidence, and/or read the transcript below. EnvirowatchRangitikei
Transcript: Pay close attention to what you are about to see. These images will be seen around the world. These rats have been fed with transgenic corn during their entire life cycle. The tumours they suffer from are enormous. The study that revealed the effect of these GMOs on the health of these rats has just been completed. It benefited from exceptional financial & technical means. We were able to witness the study in its entirety. It lasted for two years. Following years of doubt and controversies will we finally know the truth about GMOs? Would we then be faced with a health crisis of global proportions?
Paris, December 16th, 2011, Criigen offices, Committee for Research & Independent Information for Genetic Engineering…. Presentation of the results collected by Professor Seralini during his study focused on determining the potential harmfulness of the GMO corn Nk603 for humans and animals….
This is the longest most thorough study to have been carried out on a GMO and we’ve also carried out a joint study on the most used pesticide in the world, the Roundup which is a herbicide. It belongs to the main pesticide category. We spent over a year trying to obtain transgenic corn because no GMO manufacturers were willing to provide them. This is because Monsanto requires contracts to be signed stipulating that the seeds must not be used for testing and an arrangement must be made prior to the testing. We wanted our study to be independent.

This is the first time that a two year study has been conducted on GMOs and there lies the big difference. Furthermore, we tried to evaluate a maximum of biochemical & biological parameters with repeated blood tests, weighing of the specimens and urine tests. We studied the hepatic & urinary parameters as well as the blood parameters, all the parameters that can be studied. We also studied the hormonal parameters which has never been done in previous studies. This experiment is a world premiere.
Up until now the corn NK603, the very one selected for the study had only been tested over a three month period and that in a test environment entirely controlled by Monsanto, its manufacturer. Furthermore, concerning the Roundup, also manufactured by Monsanto & which is used for growing corn, only its active agent, Glyphosate had been assessed. But one needs to understand that the manufacturers in order to enable the agent to penetrate the plant cell successfully, use additives that are sometimes more harmful than the actual Glyphosate.

We have two clear objectives, firstly to conduct the studies exactly according to international requirements, but making sure we are very thorough when it comes to analyzing the results. Secondly we want to determine if there are secondary effects. The only way to do this is to carry out tests on animals, and then to examine all the blood parameters whilst paying close attention to their organs.
Commentator: At this stage it might prove useful to know exactly what GMOs are used for. It is a plant that has been developed either to produce its own insecticide or to be tolerant to a herbicide, thusenabling it to be exposed to massive doses of it without dying. One can understand how GMOs can be useful to farmers, for example they would be able to spray their entire field with Roundup, killing all the weeds in the process & never harming the genetically modified plant. On the other hand it is hard to see the benefits for the consumer who will effectively be ingesting substances coming from a plant that has absorbed the pesticides. That is why it is crucial to test not only the GMO, but also the GMO with its residue & the pesticide on its own.
Professor Seralini: This type of testing had never been done before because the corporations doing the test would do them on GMOs with the Roundup which meant that we had no idea what between the GMO & the Roundup caused the pathologies. Or they did them on GMOs without specifying that this was the case. So what we decided to do was to address the question, are we dealing with the effects of the GMO or the pesticide. During the last ten years of testing the national commissions did not envisage a pesticide effect.
Commentator: Therefore Europe does not even demand chronic or toxicity tests to be systematically carried out on animals, & when they are required, it is the manufacturers who decide the protocol to be used. For example, the Amflora potato was only tested on a group
of thirty rats, ten of which were being fed the GMO. The Monsanto corn was tested on 400 rats. Eighty of them were fed the transgenic plant, but only forty of them were then subjected to blood tests. Either way, none of these studies lasted longer than 90 days.
Professor Seralini: What is represented by this figure is that certain groups of rats, male and female, have ingested GMO corn. GMO with Roundup residue and Roundup on its own. Every time we go up a level a rat dies. The limit is ten due to the number of rats that constitute a group. The dotted line represents the females in the group who die but have a completely normal diet. Only two animals die spontaneously after 550 days. On the other hand, every female that has been fed on the GMO, GMO with Roundup or Roundup diet has died more frequently than the other rats. Some will challenge
the relevance of such results but what is undeniable is in the group that has been exposed to the GMOs there is a 600% increase or six times more deaths compared to the control group. As far as medicine or biology is concerned there is no need for further testing. An important fact is that all the studies carried out on the rats are done over a three month period. It so happens that none of the effects are visible until the fourth month. This is fundamental in understanding that studies conducted over a three month period are useless. This conclusion is easily understandable. It could be said that their only use is to soothe their consciences.
Commentator: Every rat out of the 200 that were tested was dissected by Professor Seralini’s team. They did this to discover
exactly what had affected their organs. The purpose behind this was to identify the way each diet, GMO, GMO & Roundup & Roundup on its own had acted on the metabolism of each animal. Focusing on the development rate of the tumours, that, and this comes as no surprise, only start to manifest themselves after the initial three month period.
Professor Seralini: This figure represents a number of palpable tumours contracted by the animal during the experiment. Here we can see the rats subjected to GMOs compared to those with a regular diet. As you can see, very few males contracted tumours. This is due to them being more resistant to the testing process. What these figures show are the for the large tumours, each step up
represents a large tumour which can measure 17 millimeters by 17 millimeters. For a rat these measurements are colossal. It would equate to a tumour of this size if seen on a human being. It is enormous. After having studied these tumours it can be said that 94% of them take effect in the mammary glands which would equate to breast cancer in a woman. We are faced with renal tumours for the males but not only. Some males also suffer from mammary tumours. This points towards a hormonal effect that isn’t affected by the dosage. Sixty percent of breast cancer cases are caused by hormonal deficiencies.
Commentator: Professor Seralini’s study holds one last surprise for us, and this is a major one. Up until now, one could have thought that the main cause of death for the tested rats was coming from the
pesticide added to the corn. But what the study highlighted, and this for the first time ever, is the fact that the transgenesis itself could have killed the rats. What this means is that just by interfering with the genome of the plant in order to modify it, we are faced with repercussions that no one could have anticipated. This is enough to make us reconsider all the scientific precepts that have led to the creation of GMOs.
Professor Seralini: Roundup had never been tested separately. Whilst conducting cellular studies we saw that the cells of the liver, embryos, placenta, kidneys and the umbilical cord died much faster and so we could deduce that there was a toxic effect on the organism. What can be said is that there is an increase in deaths due to GMOs and Roundup. The biggest surprise came when we realized
that GMOs without any Roundup residue were responsible for an increase in the death rate of females and of some males. This could be the result of the GMO gene that has been badly assimilated by the plant and that has therefore resulted in a negative effect, or due to a secondary metabolical effect.
Joel Spiroux Vendomois: What that means is that we are dealing with a GMO in particular. The modification of a cereal or GMO corn, with regard to the genes inserted into the corn, to make it a GMO corn can make it result in different effects. It’s not because a certain GMO has a particular effect that other GMOs will have an effect, but some have even more of an impact. What is alarming is that this
is the GMO that is being eaten by the Americans but, also the GMO that has been proved for importation by European agencies including the French ones and that obviously contaminates our food.
Commentator: Nowadays, only two types of GMOs are being produced in a few European countries. One is corn and the other potato. But what about the 27 million tons of transgenic soya that are being unloaded each year in European ports. This soya is used to feed our cattle, but it also makes its way into a number of our foodstuffs.
Professor Seralini: What we want to achieve with this study is a moratorium. The situation is serious enough, and we’re not going to eat anything and everything. We imported without knowing what was being imported. And the United States have produced crops without knowing what they were producing. There needs to be more studies of this kind, and GMO manufacturers need to conduct them before commercializing their products.
Commentator: A moratorium on growing GMOs has been approved by most European countries. Now that we know the results of the study conducted by Professor Seralini, could it be time to extend this moratorium to all the GMO used in many of our foods. To establish an undeniable scientific truth, one needs teams, time and means. Some will say that it takes too much time and that this is too expensive. But had we taken this precaution, could we not have avoided recent sanitary scandals? Will GMOs be responsible yet again for a calamitous scenario? And while we are waiting for scientific certainties, evidently, this is a risk we cannot afford to take.

Being a close observer of our environment and various strange phenomena that fall from the skies these days, I observed and collected these dandelion looking samples on 23 December 2015. I had seen them several times on previous occasions over 2015 and wondered about them as they look artificial. Why I believe they’re fake is firstly they look synthetic & unlike a real dandelion seed. They had, to me, the appearance of synthetic dacron padding. They are clumped like dandelion seed parachutes but there is no seed. Secondly they’ve come down with the long filaments that attach to my clothes line & fences most days or that carpet the ground. (People are seeing these world wide, see here for videos). Thirdly they aren’t coming down daily as you’d expect with something natural, instead they appear in one smallish window of time & that’s it. Lastly, when collecting these specimens my face itched. As often happens when this kind of stuff including the filaments fall. Some of it’s near invisible so you can’t even avoid it. Ok, short of a lab test I can’t prove this but I suspect they’re fake. So I’ve burned them, along with real dandelion samples and as you will see, the fake looking ones do indeed appear to be fake by the way they responded to flame, igniting and vanishing with no trace. The real ones were hard to set light and left ash.
I posted this find here at the contrail initially for discussion. There are some interesting thoughts there from people experienced in this field including links and excerpts. There are also sightings by other people from various forums and Youtube. Please click on the contrail link to read. (If there is anything of yours you object to being there please let me know & I will take it down).
The video here demonstrates how both the original samples and a real dandelion responded to flame. Very interesting results.
“France just passed a trailblazing new law that requires that all new buildings constructed in commercial areas to be partially-covered by either solar panels or green roofs. Not only will this bring dramatic changes to the nation’s skylines and bolster the efficiency of all new commercial construction, but the law will help France pick up the pace the solar adoption—which has lagged behind other European nations in recent years…”
Here is good news … another group opting out of Glyphosate use, this time Australia:
“Spraying weeds with synthetic chemicals could be a thing of the past in a few years if the Sunshine Coast Council has its way.
It is phasing out the use of controversial pesticide glyphosate – the active ingredient in Round Up – and introducing natural ways to control weeds, even though regulators from the State Government and CSIRO do not require them to.
Parks manager Mark Presswell says council is concerned that research has shown glyphosate is a health hazard and harmful to the environment….”
Here is an article from France on the sensible recycling of food waste…
“1/3 of the food currently produced worldwide is thrown away every year.. to help prevent this travesty, France just passed new legislation banning stores from purposefully ruining food … requiring all supermarkets 400 square feet or larger to donate unsold food to charity, for animal feed, or for farming compost.”
In recent weeks we’ve had some intriguing contrasts on this front. In NZ and the UK private organizations have been redistributing waste supermarket food to the needy, then in a town in Spain, we have a Mayor of 35 years seizing food from supermarkets to redistribute ‘Robin Hood’ style, to the poor. He sees speculation in food, and rightly so, as a disgrace. Food he says, is a right. This Mayor has also put the clamps on housing speculation and folks there in Marinaleda can own their own home for $19 a month… so long as it’s never sold for profit.
“We need to rethink our values, the consumer society, the value we place on money, selfishness and individualism,” says their mayor, Juan Manuel Sánchez Gordillo.
Then in the US of America a young woman has been sacked for giving free cafeteria lunches to children who had no lunch money (see video at the link). Seventy one cities in the US have been trying to pass ordinances forbidding the donation of food to the homeless.
” … 90-year-old World War II veteran Arnold Abbott made national headlines when he got busted by cops in Fort Lauderdale, Florida twice in one week—for giving out food to homeless people. While serving a public meal on November 2, Abbott told the Sun-Sentinel, “a policeman pulled my arm and said, ‘Drop that plate right now,’ like it was a gun.”
What’s the planet coming to? Generosity being criminalized … for what? Much of the food being denied the poor is only headed for landfills anyway. Hopefully other nations will follow the lead on this and practice some civil disobedience to get the message across. It’s not as if the poor will be shopping elsewhere and affecting profits. And profits are the underlying agenda in all of this. Take an hour out and watch ‘The Corporation’ documentary. You will learn from that that profits are the bottom line for corporations. They are not about helping people and the insanity of many of them needs to be challenged. Preventing people from feeding the poor simply isn’t right.
