Let’s get this straight. There should never have been a Bretton Woods 1.
Just a note for those who go there, and use it as social media platform. I’ve checked on Twitter and it appears others are having the same issue. First got a “warning” that the site was “unsafe”, then continued to try, and it’s still down, in my hands, at least.
Perhaps the MSM et al, are being “threatened” by OnStellar, as they are with Gab.com. We shall see.
Another note from Andrew Torba. As I mentioned in yesterday’s Gab post, this is all backfiring on those who try to take down these “free speech” social media platforms. Styx666 lays out some rationale for why Gab was “taken down”, temporarily (it’s about $$, in part). And SGTReport talks to the cofounder of Minds.com about this as well.
Gab has spent the past 48 hours proudly working with the DOJ and FBI to bring justice to an alleged terrorist. Because of the data we provided, they now have plenty of evidence for their case. In the midst of this Gab has been no-platformed by essential internet infrastructure providers at every level. We are the most censored, smeared, and no-platformed startup in history, which means we are a threat to the media and to the Silicon Valley Oligarchy.
Gab isn’t going anywhere.
It doesn’t matter what you write. It doesn’t matter what the sophist talking heads say on TV. It doesn’t matter what verified nobodies say on Twitter. We have plenty of options, resources, and support. We will exercise every possible avenue to keep Gab online and defend free speech and individual liberty for all people.
You have all just made Gab a nationally recognized brand as the home of free speech online at a time when Silicon Valley is stifling political speech they disagree with to interfere in a US election.
The internet is not reality. TV is not reality. 80% of normal everyday people agree with Gab and support free expression and liberty. The online outrage mob and mainstream media spin machine are the minority opinion. People are waking up, so please keep pointing the finger at a social network instead of pointing the finger at the alleged shooter who holds sole responsibility for his actions.
No-platform us all you want. Ban us all you want. Smear us all you want.
You can’t stop an idea.
As we transition to a new hosting provider Gab will be inaccessible for a period of time. We are working around the clock to get Gab.com back online. Thank you and remember to speak freely.
Large numbers of proles that sstill trust what CNN tells them are convinced that Gab is a nazi site which has been rightfully struck off the normie net for encouraging violence. These people unfortunately possess the right to vote.

Antibiotic resistance is often pegged as a problem caused by the overuse of antibiotics — and this is a driving factor — but research suggests it may actually be only one piece to the puzzle. Environmental factors may be accelerating the rise of antibiotic resistance as well, particularly widely used herbicides like glyphosate (Roundup) and dicamba (Kamba).
Research from University of Canterbury researchers revealed that agrichemicals and antibiotics in combination increase the evolution of antibiotic resistance. In fact, bacteria may develop antibiotic resistance up to 100,000 times faster when they’re exposed to certain herbicides in the environment.1
“The combination of chemicals to which bacteria are exposed in the modern environment should be addressed alongside antibiotic use if we are to preserve antibiotics in the long term,” study author Jack Heinemann of the University of Canterbury, said in a news release.2
The study found cases when exposure to herbicides made the antibiotics more toxic while at the same time increasing the antibiotic resistance. Heinemann explained why this is an alarming finding:
“We are inclined to think that when a drug or other chemical makes antibiotics more potent, that should be a good thing. But it also makes the antibiotic more effective at promoting resistance when the antibiotic is at lower concentrations, as we more often find in the environment … Such combinations can be like trying to put out the raging fire of antibiotic resistance with gasoline.”
The results suggest that herbicides enhance the ability of antibiotics to become antibiotic resistant and that such resistance may be acquired at rates much faster than those predicted in laboratory conditions. Previously, research by Heinemann and colleagues found that commonly used herbicides promote antibiotic resistance by priming pathogens to more readily become resistant to antibiotics.3
This includes Roundup (the actual formulation of Roundup, not just its active ingredient glyphosate in isolation), which was shown to increase the antibiotic-resistant prowess of E. coli and salmonella, along with dicamba and 2,4-D. Rodale News reported:4
“The way Roundup causes this effect is likely by causing the bacteria to turn on a set of genes that are normally off, [study author] Heinemann says. ‘These genes are for ‘pumps’ or ‘porins,’ proteins that pump out toxic compounds or reduce the rate at which they get inside of the bacteria …’
Once these genes are turned on by the herbicide, then the bacteria can also resist antibiotics. If bacteria were to encounter only the antibiotic, they would instead have been killed. In a sense, the herbicide is ‘immunizing’ the bacteria to the antibiotic … This change occurs at levels commonly used on farm field crops, lawns, gardens and parks.”
Further research by Heinemann and colleagues, published in the journal Microbiology, set out to determine what ingredients of the commercial herbicide formulations caused the antibiotic resistance effect, with results showing the active ingredients are to blame.5
“Active ingredients induced changes in antibiotic responses similar to those caused by complete formulations. This occurred at or below recommended application concentrations,” the researchers noted.
In the environment, it’s common for herbicides and antibiotics to be used simultaneously. “Herbicides are used in agriculture, where spray drift or walking through treated fields exposes farm livestock and pets, which may be on therapeutic or prophylactic antibiotics,” researchers wrote in PeerJ.6
Eighty percent of the antibiotics used in the U.S. are used by industrial agriculture for purposes of growth promotion and preventing diseases. And it’s already known that concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs) are breeding grounds for antibiotic-resistant disease. As far back as the 1970s, antibiotic-resistant organisms were detected in chickens eating feed supplemented with antibiotics.
The resistant organisms were not found in the farmers or the animals prior to the use of the antibiotic on the farm, but within five months of its introduction into poultry feed, more than 31 percent of fecal samples from farmworkers tested positive for antibiotic-resistant organisms, even though none had been treated with the drug.7
The concurrent use of herbicides in agriculture only adds to the likelihood of serious antibiotic resistance emerging from industrial farms. Researchers explained the glaring role of CAFOs in antibiotic resistance in Environmental Health Perspectives:8
“This prolonged use of antibiotics, especially at low levels, presents a risk of not killing the bacteria while promoting their resistance by selecting for resistant populations. The resistance genes can pass readily from one kind of bacteria to another. Thus, workers in the animal units may become colonized with resistant organisms and can pass them on to co-workers and family members or friends.
Consumers of meat may also become colonized through mishandling of raw meat or through insufficient cooking. Ultimately, these genes may pass into pathogens, and diseases that were formerly treatable will be capable of causing severe illness or death.”
What’s more, Heinemann and colleagues explained, is that most antibiotics ingested by animals are not metabolized but rather excreted. This waste is then applied to soil as a fertilizer, which may then be sprayed with herbicide. The antibiotic-resistant microbes may then be carried elsewhere by houseflies.
Honeybees, which are also exposed to herbicides while foraging, may then return to a hive that’s been treated with antibiotics, revealing far more avenues for the creation of antibiotic-resistant disease than have been realized. “Additionally,” the researchers said, “herbicides are used in urban environments for purposes like gardening and lawn care, including parks and roadsides.”9
It’s believed that other chemicals in the environment may also increase resistance in microbes, much like herbicides. For instance, prescription medications other than antibiotics have also been found to encourage antibiotic-resistant gut bacteria, as have food emulsifiers.
With about 8 million chemical substances currently manufactured, it’s likely that some of them may also influence antibiotic resistance, but the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) doesn’t regulate or test them for such effects — even among the 3,000 top-volume chemicals produced annually.10 As written in PeerJ:11
“Evidence that antibiotic resistance evolution is influenced by exposure of bacteria to a wide range of substances may require us to make changes in how we manage both antibiotics and other manufactured and widely distributed chemical products. This is because many facets of the extrinsic environment induce adaptive changes, a complexity frequently ignored in standard studies of resistance.
As our results show, complex effects of exposures to nontherapeutic chemicals may undermine strategies to preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics through altering just their use. To our knowledge, there has been no attempt to systematically test common chemicals to which pathogenic bacteria are chronically exposed for effects on antibiotic resistance.”
Campaigns are underway to stop antibiotics overuse, both in human medicine and agriculture. And there’s little doubt that the long-term administration of low doses of antibiotics on CAFOs is a practice that should be stopped to protect antibiotics’ effectiveness. However, even that may not be enough to stop this looming public health disaster — unless the use of herbicides and other chemicals that affect antibiotic resistance is also curbed.
“[A]ntibiotic resistance may increase even if total antibiotic use is reduced, and new ones are invented, unless other environmental exposures are also controlled,” GM Watch reported.12 However, an estimated 7.7 billion pounds of pesticides are applied to crops each year globally, and that number is steadily increasing.13
Rather than acknowledging that pesticide usage is overkill, pesticide companies incentivize the use of more harmful chemicals to farmers by offering cash back for purchasing more chemicals. Meanwhile, a 2015 study found that integrated pest management (IPM) techniques reduced pesticide use while boosting crop yields in a meta-analysis of 85 sites in 24 countries.14
Some were even able to eliminate pesticide use entirely using techniques such as crop rotation and pheromone traps to capture insect pests. So there are ways to slash pesticide usage considerably, but for now it seems we’re heading steadily toward a post-antibiotic era:15
“Neither reducing the use of antibiotics nor discovery of new ones may prevent the post-antibiotic era. This is because bacteria may be exposed to other nonantibiotic chemicals that predispose them to evolve resistance to antibiotics more quickly. Herbicides are examples of some of the most common nonantibiotic formulations in frequent global use.
More research is necessary to see to what extend other different manufactured chemicals may contribute to this effect. Moreover, depending on how the manufactured chemicals are used, or how they move through the waste stream, there may be combinatorial effects caused by mixtures of different products.”
In the U.S., according to U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) data, every year at least 2 million Americans acquire drug-resistant infections and 23,000 die as a result.
Many others die from conditions that were complicated by antibiotic-resistant infections.16 Worldwide, 700,000 people die every year due to antibiotic-resistant disease, and it’s estimated that more people will be affected by it than cancer by 2050.17
You can get involved in the campaign to reduce pesticide usage by actively seeking out and supporting organic, regenerative farmers, who have decided that avoiding chemical-treated seeds and excessive chemical spraying is essential to nurturing soil health, protecting the environment and growing nutritious food.
In addition, seek out sustainably sourced, antibiotic-free meat and other grass fed animal products, including looking for the American Grassfed Association (AGA) logo, which lets you know the animals were fed a lifetime diet of 100 percent forage, were raised on pasture (not in confinement) and were not treated with hormones or antibiotics. You can further help reduce your risk of being affected by antibiotic-resistant disease by:
Using antibiotics only when absolutely necessary — Antibiotics are typically unnecessary for most ear infections, and they do not work on viruses. They only work on bacterial infections and, even then, they’re best reserved for more serious infections.
Taking an antibiotic unnecessarily will kill off your beneficial gut bacteria for no reason at all, which could actually make it more difficult for you to recover from your illness. If you do take a course of antibiotics, be sure to reseed your gut with healthy bacteria by eating fermented foods or taking a probiotic supplement.
As an all-around preventive measure, make sure your vitamin D level is optimized year-round, especially during pregnancy, along with vitamin K2. A number of other natural compounds can also help boost your immune system function to help rid you of an infection, including vitamin C, oil of oregano, garlic, Echinacea and tea tree oil.
Manuka honey can also be used for topical applications, as it’s effective against many bacteria, including some resistant varieties, such as MRSA.
Avoiding all antibacterial household products — This includes items such as antibacterial hand sanitizers and wipes, toothpaste, deodorants and detergents, as these too promote antibiotic resistance.
Properly washing your hands with warm water and plain soap, to prevent the spreading of bacteria — Be particularly mindful of washing your hands and kitchen surfaces after handling raw meats from CAFOs, as about half of all meat sold in grocery stores around the U.S. is likely to be contaminated with potentially dangerous bacteria.
Confined animal feeding operations (CAFOs) — gigantic factory farms that hold many thousands of animals in a warehouse-style setting — are an environmental disaster in more ways than one, and when hurricanes hit, this fact becomes acutely obvious when animal waste, collected in massive “lagoons,” overflow, contaminating both land, water and residential homes.
Even under the best circumstances, the lagoons may leak, seeping millions of gallons of waste a year into neighboring soil and groundwater.1 Add in a formidable force like a hurricane and the potential for leakage, overflow and runoff is virtually guaranteed. I recently discussed this at length in “After the Hurricane: Swine Waste Swirls in North Carolina.”
Environmental contamination from overflowing animal waste is bad enough in and of itself, but CAFO waste is made all the worse by the fact that these animals are routinely fed antibiotics, which promotes antibiotic-resistant bacteria.
These drug-resistant pathogens are then spread through the environment in a variety of ways. Storms drive contaminated water across large areas, wind spread airborne pathogens, and other foods are contaminated by using the waste as fertilizer, as discussed in “Factory Farm Responsible for Lettuce Contamination.”
Vice News highlighted some of the problems associated with North Carolina’s CAFO hog waste in a recent article, noting:2
“The waste-filled lagoons have created a constant source of environmental pollution during hurricanes, which frequent North Carolina’s coast. Lagoons overflowed or breached in 1996 during Hurricane Fran, in 1998 during Hurricane Bonnie, in 1999 during Hurricane Floyd, in 2016 during Hurricane Matthew, and just last month during Hurricane Florence — 33 overflowed.”
Hurricanes, which hit North Carolina with regularity, clearly compound the environmental problems associated with hog CAFOs, but it’s an inescapable issue for residents year-round.
When the lagoons are emptied by spraying the liquid waste onto fields, nearby residents are quite literally showered with liquefied feces, and several studies3,4,5 have noted the health dangers of living near these CAFOs. A North Carolina swine farm nuisance lawsuit6 even presents evidence of hog DNA collected from the walls in residential homes.
Many find the stench unbearable and the air hard to breathe. Most recently, a study7 published in the North Carolina Medical Journal found communities near hog CAFOs have higher mortality rates from anemia, kidney disease, tuberculosis and septicemia, as well as higher infant mortality. According to the authors:
“Although not establishing causality with exposures from hog CAFOs, our findings support the need for future studies to determine factors that influence these outcomes, as well as the need to improve screening and diagnostic strategies for these diseases in North Carolina communities adjacent to hog CAFOs.”
As noted in the featured article,8 more than 20 nuisance lawsuits have been filed against the industry, arguing the stench and contamination from hog waste is reducing residents’ quality of life. So far, the first three cases were won by the plaintiffs, who were awarded $2.5 million,9 $25 million10 and $473 million11 in punitive damages respectively.
American livestock farmers use nearly 30 million pounds of antibiotics each year in the raising of their animals.12,13 Most of these are raised in CAFOs, where overcrowding, lack of sanitation, stress and an unnatural diet make the animals prone to illness. Antibiotics are routinely added to their feed to combat disease.
Antibiotics also have the side effect of promoting growth, making the animals grow fatter faster, which is another reason for the drugs’ use. This agricultural use accounts for about 80 percent of all antibiotics used in the U.S.,14 making it a significant source of continuous low-dose exposure via your diet.
However, while low-dose antibiotic exposure is a health risk, a far more significant concern is the antibiotic-resistant bacteria CAFO meats may harbor. As revealed by a recent analysis of food testing done by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2015, 83 percent of meats sold in U.S. supermarkets are contaminated with enterococcus faecalis, i.e., fecal bacteria. A high percentage are also contaminated with antibiotic-resistant bacteria:15,16
Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are not just in the meat, however. Researchers have found drug-resistant pathogens can also spread from CAFO feedlots into the environment via the air, spreading far and wide by wind.17,18,19,20
Between August and December 2012, Phil Smith, an associate professor of terrestrial ecotoxicology at Texas Tech and his colleague, Greg Mayer, an associate professor of molecular toxicology, collected air samples from 10 commercial cattle yards within a 200-mile radius of Lubbock, Texas. Texas Monthly reported the findings, saying:21
“… Downwind, they found antibiotics — specifically tetracycline — present at significantly higher levels than in the upwind samples. Yet as they dug deeper, they discovered something even more worrisome. Along with the antibiotics, they found another hitchhiker: remnants of bacteria that had acquired a gene that made them resistant to tetracycline.
‘The tetracycline resistance was 400,000 percent more prevalent downwind than upwind,’ said Smith. At some of the locations, there was tetracycline resistance in 100 percent of the samples. ‘That was really the wow moment,’ said Mayer.”
The pair explain that the drug-resistant genes are contained in the fecal matter. When it dries, it allows the genes to spread by winds over great distances. The study estimates that the amount of potentially contaminated dust particles released by cattle yards in Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma and Texas exceeds 46,000 pounds (21,000 kg) per day.
So not only can you be exposed to antibiotic-resistant bacteria via water and contaminated meat, depending on where you live, simply breathing could be a route of exposure as well.
Smith also notes that microbes are “promiscuous with their genetic information,” and can share their genetic information across species.22 What this means is that microbes that have not been directly exposed to antibiotics may still develop resistance, simply by coming into contact with drug-resistant bacteria.
The fact that this mingling may occur just about anywhere — even out in nature — is troubling, as it implies there’s virtually no way to stop the progression of resistance. It simply cannot be confined.
As reported by Texas Monthly,23 the findings caused quite the headache for the Texas Cattle Feeders Association. Its president and CEO, Ross Wilson, said the idea that antibiotic-resistant bacteria were airborne was “a big accusation” based on “a superficial, initial set of science.”
“They found genetic material. That does not mean that there’s any organism that is out there that is going to transfer that potential resistance,” Wilson said. “And if people expect us to sit idly by and not defend our members when some are alleging this is our fault, it’s not happening.”
Mayer and Smith agree there are unanswered questions, such as “What is the consequence of the bacteria’s gene sequence when it lands?” and “Can it cause an infection in humans?” Texas Monthly continues:
“If the bacteria are dead … then what Smith and Mayer found was naked DNA, which is released by bacteria after their cell walls have decomposed. When these pieces of DNA fall out of the wind, they can be picked up by bacteria on the ground, in a process known as transformation.
If live bacteria downwind of the feed yard absorbed the DNA found in Smith and Mayer’s samples, they could acquire antibiotic resistance, though the process is much less efficient than conjugation. Smith and Mayer don’t know if the bacteria they detected downwind of the feedlots were dead or alive.
Nor do they know at what concentrations the bacteria might be found as they move farther away from the feedlots. But they had demonstrated that antibiotic resistance could be spread on the wind.”
Disturbed by comments made by Smith and Mayer during the media storm that followed the publication of their findings, Wilson called the duo for a meeting, in which he asked them to dial back the media attention. According to Texas Monthly:
“The incident upset Smith and Mayer, who have both grown weary of the controversy their research has sparked. ‘This is like nothing I have ever experienced in science before. And it’s not that we haven’t done cooler things, better things, more technical things,’ said Mayer.
‘It’s just that there isn’t a big industry that cares about it.’ Smith put it another way. ‘They would like nothing more than for us to zip our mouths, put our instruments away, and never do another study,’ he said … ‘I just don’t like to be bullied’…”
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, manure from industrial agriculture is the primary source of nitrogen and phosphorus in waterways.24 The resulting damage includes algae overgrowth that depletes the water of oxygen, killing fish and other marine life. (Such risks are again magnified if large quantities of waste enter waterways following hurricane-driven flooding or overflow.)
Slaughterhouses are another surprising source of nitrogen pollution. A recent report25 published by the Environmental Integrity Project found that 3 in 4 American meat processing plants that discharge nitrogen waste into local waterways have violated the pollution limits of their federal Clean Water Act permits at least once between January 1, 2016, and June 30, 2018.
One-third of them had 10 or more violations. FB Purnell Sausage Co. in Simpsonville, Kentucky, had a record 109 permit violations over this time period. Of the 98 processing plants reviewed, the JBS USA pork processing plant in Beardstown, Illinois, was identified as the No. 1 polluter, discharging 1,848 pounds of nitrogen per day into the Illinois River.
That’s equal to the raw sewage created by a town of 79,000 residents. On average, each slaughterhouse released 331 pounds of total nitrogen per day into local waterways in 2017. As noted in the report:
“While meatpacking is obviously cleaner today than it was more than a hundred years ago, slaughterhouse waste contaminates too many rivers and streams in rural America with pathogens, oxygen-depleting pollutants like nitrogen and phosphorus, and other contaminants like sulfates and chlorides.
When released into waterways in high concentrations, these pollutants drive excess algae growth, feed “dead zones” that suffocate aquatic life and turn waterways into bacteria-laden public health hazards …
Slaughterhouses dispose of wastewater in three ways, typically after some treatment: piping it directly into waterways, spraying it on land or sending it to a nearby town or county sewage treatment plant. Sixty-five of the 98 plants we studied slaughter poultry; 15 process beef; 9, hogs; and the rest other meat.”
Tyson Foods had the greatest number of plants with violations — 26 in all — followed by Pilgrims’ Pride, which had seven plants in violation, and Sanderson Farms with six plants. According to the report, “Large pollution loads and frequent permit violations are impairing streams and rivers. Fifty-nine of the 98 plants discharge to waterways that are impaired by one or more pollutants found in slaughterhouse wastewater.”
The report also notes that enforcement of pollution limits and penalties for violations are rare. During the time period reviewed, 18 plants had more than 100 violations per day, yet eight of them paid no fines at all.
What can be done about all of these problems? From an individual standpoint, one of the most proactive things you can do to promote change is to vote with your wallet by buying organic (or even better, biodynamic) grass fed meats and animal products.
Livestock is an important part of regenerative agriculture, and when raised and integrated properly, the waste from the animals goes straight back into and feeds the ecological cycle rather than becoming a source of pollution.
While many grocery stores now carry organic foods, it’s preferable to source yours from local growers whenever possible, as many organic foods sold in grocery stores are imported.26 If you live in the U.S., the following organizations can help you locate farm-fresh foods:
American Grassfed Association — The goal of the American Grassfed Association is to promote the grass fed industry through government relations, research, concept marketing and public education.
Their website also allows you to search for AGA approved producers certified according to strict standards that include being raised on a diet of 100 percent forage; raised on pasture and never confined to a feedlot; never treated with antibiotics or hormones; and born and raised on American family farms.
EatWild.com — EatWild.com provides lists of farmers known to produce raw dairy products as well as grass fed beef and other farm-fresh produce (although not all are certified organic). Here you can also find information about local farmers markets, as well as local stores and restaurants that sell grass fed products.
Weston A. Price Foundation — Weston A. Price has local chapters in most states, and many of them are connected with buying clubs in which you can easily purchase organic foods, including grass fed raw dairy products like milk and butter.
Grassfed Exchange — The Grassfed Exchange has a listing of producers selling organic and grass fed meats across the U.S.
Local Harvest — This website will help you find farmers markets, family farms and other sources of sustainably grown food in your area where you can buy produce, grass fed meats and many other goodies.

Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture (CISA) — CISA is dedicated to sustaining agriculture and promoting the products of small farms.
The Cornucopia Institute — The Cornucopia Institute maintains web-based tools rating all certified organic brands of eggs, dairy products and other commodities, based on their ethical sourcing and authentic farming practices separating CAFO “organic” production from authentic organic practices.
RealMilk.com — If you’re still unsure of where to find raw milk, check out Raw-Milk-Facts.com and RealMilk.com. They can tell you what the status is for legality in your state, and provide a listing of raw dairy farms in your area. The Farm to Consumer Legal Defense Fund27 also provides a state-by-state review of raw milk laws.28 California residents can also find raw milk retailers using the store locator available at www.OrganicPastures.com.
The majority of food produced as meats in the U.S. comes from concentrated animal feeding operations (CAFOs), industrialized systems that, by their very nature, degrade the ecosystems around them. But “to be economical and efficient, farming needs healthy ecosystems,” notes “A Regenerative Secret,” the important documentary video above.
This stark contrast between two farming methods is at the heart of the film. One, the industrialized model favored in the U.S., is steadily destroying the environment while the other, known as regenerative agriculture, is trying to rebuild it.
CAFOs house hundreds to even millions of animals in small spaces, confining animals into unnatural, mostly indoor (often windowless) settings where disease propagates and animal welfare is an afterthought. Some CAFOs, such as those for livestock, may also include feedlots, where animals may roam outdoors.
But unlike the green pastures you may envision when you picture cows grazing outside, feedlots crowd hundreds of thousands of cattle into small pens that are devoid of greenery. The animals trample over mud, dust and an excess of feces and urine, which washes into nearby waterways.
Raising large numbers of animals in such an unhealthy system leads to disastrous environmental outputs. According to the environmental organization Sierra Club:1
The amount of urine and feces produced by the smallest CAFO is equivalent to the quantity of urine and feces produced by 16,000 humans.
CAFO waste is usually not treated to reduce disease-causing pathogens, nor to remove chemicals, pharmaceuticals, heavy metals or other pollutants.
Waste is often collected into noxious “lagoons” for storage or sprayed onto neighboring fields.
Over 168 gases are emitted from CAFO waste, including hazardous chemicals such as ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and methane.
Airborne particulate matter is found near CAFOs and can carry disease-causing bacteria, fungus or other pathogens.
Animals frequently die in CAFOs. Their carcasses, often in large numbers, must be dealt with.
Infestations of flies, rats and other vermin are commonplace around CAFOs and therefore around CAFO neighbors.
According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), manure from industrial agriculture is the primary source of nitrogen and phosphorus in waterways.2 The resulting damage includes an excess of nutrients that lead to algae overgrowth, depleting the water of oxygen and killing fish and other marine life in expansive dead zones.
This, combined with the excess fertilizers applied to monocrops like corn and soy (much of them used to feed CAFO animals), sends a steady stream of nitrogen and phosphorus to both surface and groundwater, spreading potentially disease-causing organisms and unsustainable amounts of nutrients along the way.
In fact, in the U.S., agriculture poses the greatest threat to water quality and is single-handedly impairing drinking water supplies across the country. CAFOs are also toxic to the air. Research published in the journal Geophysical Research Letters demonstrated that in certain densely populated areas, emissions from farming far outweigh other sources of particulate matter air pollution.3
As nitrogen fertilizers break down into their component parts, ammonia, a byproduct of fertilizer and animal waste, is released into the air. When ammonia in the atmosphere reaches industrial areas, it combines with pollution from diesel and petroleum combustion, creating microparticles.
CAFO workers and neighboring residents alike report higher incidence of asthma, headaches, eye irritation and nausea. Research published in the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine also revealed that markers of lung function were related to how far people lived from CAFOs.4
The closer they lived to the factory farms, and the greater the density of livestock, the more impairments in lung function were revealed. Lung function of neighboring residents declined in concert with increased levels of CAFO-caused ammonia air pollution, the study revealed.5
At the same time, CAFOs and the industrial monocrops used to feed CAFO animals destroy soil, depleting it of nutrients and adding an excess of chemical fertilizers and pesticides.
For example, glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, the most widely used herbicide globally, shuts down amino acid synthesis, followed by inhibition of protein synthesis necessary for plant growth. When that happens, it makes the plant more susceptible to pathogens in the soil.
Glyphosate also acts as a mineral chelator, and minerals such as zinc, copper, and manganese act as cofactors in many enzymes. This mineral suppression opens the plant up to disease and when minerals are bound to glyphosate in the plant, they will not be available to your body when you eat it. Instead, those minerals will be excreted or stored in your body along with the glyphosate
Regenerative agriculture is the opposite of industrial farming. Where CAFOs pollute and destroy the soil, regenerative farming rebuilds it. Allen Williams, Ph.D., a sixth-generation farmer and chief ranching officer for Joyce Farms, is described as the “grass fed guru” in the featured film. He explains how regenerative farming restores and increases soil organic matter, leading to a number of beneficial outcomes.
For starters, soil organic matter is 50 percent carbon, so by rebuilding soil they’re putting carbon into the ground. The importance of carbon sequestration simply cannot be overstated. Not only will it reduce the carbon dioxide (CO2) load in the atmosphere, but once sequestered in the soil, the carbon actively nourishes soil health and improves water retention.
Adding just 1 percent soil organic matter to the earth means every acre can hold another 25,000 gallons of water, according to Williams. “When you contrast that with the average farm and ranch across North America, water infiltration rate is less than a half-inch an hour,” he says.
With classic industrial farming, this means the water will either evaporate or run off, carrying with it topsoil (more than four tons per acre are lost this way annually, Williams says), along with nitrates and phosphates that run off into waterways, creating significant environmental issues. Regenerative farming, on the other hand, reduces the need for irrigation, which currently accounts for 70 percent of the world’s total fresh water usage.
According to Williams, by using regenerative agriculture techniques, they’re able to build new soil organic matter at a rate of 0.5 percent to 1 percent annually. For comparison, a 0.4 percent increase in the world’s soil organic matter would completely negate all current CO2 emissions. What techniques are used to create this impressive output?
In short, they try to mimic what bison once did as they roamed the plains, by creating different paddocks where cattle are moved multiple times a day, a practice known as adaptive, rotational grazing.
This prevents overgrazing, allowing the grass in one area to grow back while the animals graze in another, and promotes fertility and growth. Additional principles of regenerative agriculture, as described by Williams’ Joyce Farms on their website, include:6
• Build Soil Health — By farming without harsh chemicals and tilling, regenerative agriculture allows microbes in the soil to thrive. These microbes are essential for preventing runoff and nourishing plant growth. “Soil doesn’t work without microbes,” they say, as soil should be alive, not dead. “Dead soil cannot hold carbon, so it is released into the atmosphere as CO2.”
• Diverse Cover Crops and Plant Life — Planting a diverse variety of plants increases microbial populations and organic matter in the soil, while also covering and protecting the earth. “By introducing a diverse variety of plants to the soil, the microbial population in the soil becomes stronger. With soil life, ecosystems thrive,” they say.
• No Till — Tilling destroys soil structure and reduces soil organic matter while increasing weeds and the release of CO2.
• No Chemical Inputs — The use of chemicals like fertilizers, herbicides, fungicides and pesticides kill off beneficial species, like pollinators, and pollute waterways with chemical runoff. It’s also a relatively recent practice that traditionally was not part of farming.
“For hundreds of years chemicals where not needed or used in farming because, sensibly, chemical inputs aren’t needed when you are working with (not against) the systems Mother Nature already has in place,” the Joyce Farms website explains.
• Livestock Integration — Rather than housing livestock separately from other animals and crops, livestock is integrated into a symbiotic, complementary system that mimics the way nature works.
“The way we do this at Joyce Farms is by mimicking the dense herds of grazing ruminants that used to roam across America, grazing and trampling plants into the soil. This trampling provides an armor of plant life for the soil and feeds the soil microbes.”
Interest in regenerative farming is growing, but it still represents less than 2 percent of farms in the U.S. According to Allen, regenerative farmers make up just one-tenth of 1 percent of the entire U.S. population. Why aren’t more farmers doing it? “It’s just because people don’t know,” the featured film notes.
One common misconception is that in order to farm in a way that’s good for the environment, you can’t make a lot of money. In reality, Williams was able to increase production on his farm fivefold in the last three years without the use of imported water, feed, fertilizer or pesticides.
With the improved soil health, he’s now growing 3.5 times more forage per acre, which means he can also carry more cows per acre, bringing in more profit. In addition, as organic matter in the soil has been rebuilt, plant growth and diversity thrives. This has resulted in a return of significant wildlife populations, including but not limited to deer, ground-nesting bird species and wild turkeys.
Beneficial insect populations that are vital to fertilization and propagation of plants are also positively impacted. Allen has noted a significant return in the pollinator insect population and other beneficial organisms like earthworm and dung beetles on farms that have adopted regenerative land management principles. He says:
“We know how profound this impact is, not just on farmers and ranchers and their ability to make a good living but also on the rural economies surrounding these farms and ranches. We can rebuild our ecosystem, our degraded soils and our degraded water cycles. That’s what excites me. And we’re creating an opportunity to bring young people back into agriculture.”
One of the most straightforward ways is to seek out grass fed food from regenerative farmers, via local farms, farmers markets or food co-ops. You may also be able to find sustainably grown food at small local markets and online.
Foods from Joyce farms, for example, are available not only online but also at select farmers markets and retail locations in North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, Washington D.C., Georgia and Tennessee. If you’re not sure how the food was raised, ask questions of the shop owner or farmer to find out.
In addition, consumers can unite to support policies from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), EPA and others that support regenerative agricultural practices while voting against policies that are detrimental to regenerative farmers.
In your own backyard, you can also stop using agricultural chemicals in favor of regenerative practices like not tilling and using mulch and compost. By creating a regenerative garden in the spring, it will allow you to improve soil microbiology on a small scale while also rewarding you with fresh, nutrient-rich food.
Every little bit helps, and the more individuals and larger scale farms move away from industrial methods to regenerative ones, the faster the Earth will heal and the brighter the future becomes.
I found this tonight in my blogspot drafts folder, and I don’t know how it got there. I do remember the conversation but it was never posted on the blog from what I can tell. I did come down with a strangulated umbilical hernia about the same time period and spent the next two weeks in hospital and had to undergo emergency surgery.
So my apologies that this is over a year late, but it does relate very much to what the Galactics requested of me tonight which I will cover in the next post.
Perhaps its all perfect in its own way. Better late than never!. -Terran.

HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: [to Denice] Do you all have a moment to overlight essential data…for questions asked and the big one…how to make it all visible…we can then copy it over to “because it feels good now” skype room and all can do with the data as they feeeeel to
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: …as all flows
Denice: yes! sure!
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. WE ARE HERE. DCSX. [Data Collectors Stan X]
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: BELOVED STAN X AND DATA COLLECTORS. LOVE THE “DCSX”.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf .COMPLETE LOVE AND GRATITUDE FOR ALL YOU DO. I AM INJOY-ING THE NEW ADDITIONS TO THE EXPANDED COMPLETE SPECTRUM.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf .BEAUTIFULLY DONE!
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. IT IS OUR DEEPEST DESIRE TO REUNITE WITH OLD FRIENDS AND TO MEET NEW ONES NOW. DCSX.
:HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: AMPLIFYING ALL!
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: YES…ALL FOCUS ALL INTENT ON THIS.
Thor: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. I AM HERE. THOR. END.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: YES, HONEY I FEEL YOU. I FEEEEEEEL EVERY ONE…AND THERE IS NO DESCRIPTION FOR THE INCREDIBLE SYMPHONY ALL BE TONING NOW.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: SHALL WE TONE NOW THE COMPLETE “BEAT” THAT MAKES ALL VISIBLE?
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. YES. NOW. TOGETHER. DCSX AND ALL.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: …THE KEY “TECH” THAT WAS CREATED FOR THIS MOMENT THAT HAS NO BORDERS.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: THE HEART.
Stqn X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. YES. KNOWN/FELT/SEEN HERE. DCSX.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf:YES. NOW FOR COMPLETE CONTEXT IN THE UTILIZATION, APPLICATION, AFFECT AND EFFECT.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf .“…It is impossible to keep crucial information secret by putting it under lock and key since that only emphasizes its value, and a determined adversary will always find a way to obtain it. The only way to keep such information contained is to keep it in plain sight while simultaneously minimizing its significance…” ~ Farsight [Institute]
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: PLEASE ACCESS ALL RECORDS FOR “THE WELD”, spring 2014, location Aouchtam Morocco.
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. ACCESSING INNER RECORDS. SPRING 2014 EARTHSPHERE. MOROCCO. AOUCHTAM. NOW. DCSX.
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. RECORDS OPEN NOW. DCSX.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: WE DO GO THROUGH THIS DATA NOW BY EXPERIENCING THE “BEFORE WELD” AND THE “AFTER WELD”. SCIENCE CREWS READY?
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf:ALL AMPLIFY. READY. NOW. ALL AMPLIFIED.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: WE HAVE DEFTLY PREPARED FOR THIS DOING FOR “MANY MOONS”. IN COMPLETE HUMOR. ANDREAS, THOR, NABRAC, SHERRON AND SHERRAN READY?
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: AND ALL WHO FEEL TO DO THIS DOING NOW.
Thor: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. WE ARE ALL READY HERE AND NOW AND THEN. IN HUMOUR. THOR.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: BEFORE SEPARATION, ALL DATA WAS FELT, ACCESSED, AND UTILIZED BY ALL… ALL WAYS ALWAYS.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: HEART, LOVE, ONENESS…ALL THESE “NAMES” AND MORE HAVE BEEN GIVEN TO THE “MECHANISM”/”TECH” OF THE INNERNET ALL BE.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf:ALL THOUGHTS, WORDS, ACTIONS, AND FREQUENCIES/VIBRATIONS SEEN ALWAYS.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: FREQUENCIES AND VIBRATIONS BEING “INTENT”…AND INTENT APPLIED BY DOING ACTION…ALL ACTION, INCLUDING THE ACTION OF BEING.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: I NOTE TO YOU THAT I AM USING PAST TENSE TO SPRING US FROM MULTIPLE PERCEPTIONS TO ALL THAT IS, WHAT IS REFERRED TO AS “NEW EARTH”.
Stan X: YES. NOTE AND INTENT RECORDED. DCSX.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: QUERRY: HOW DOES ONE ACCOMPLISH AN EXPERIENCE OF SEPARATION WHEN ALL DATA IS FELT, ACCESSED, AND UTILIZED BY ALL…ALL WAYS ALWAYS?
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. THE ILLUSION OF SEPARATION IS “CREATED/ACCOMPLISHED” BY “SHIELDING/SPLITTING/FRAYING/DECENTRALIZING” DATA FLOW. DCSX.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: AND DO YOU FEEEEEL AND SEEEE WHY ONE WOULD CHOSE TO EXPERIENCE SEPARATION IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. YES. THERE ARE MANY PERSPECTIVES RECORDED OF THAT INITIAL MOMENT. DCSX.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: IMAGINE AS EACH CREATES, AND REMEMBER ALL DATA IS FELT, ACCESSED, AND UTILIZED BY ALL, ALL WAYS ALWAYS…IF ONE DOES AN EXPERIENCE, AND ALL FEEEEEEEL THE RAW VIBRATIONS AND FREQUENCIES THAT FLOW FROM THAT EXPERIENCE…DO SEEEE THE CONDUNDRUM THAT IS CREATED?
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: IF THE VIBRATIONS AND FREQUENCIES FEEEEEEEL INCREDIBLE, NO ONE COMPLAINS…THOSE ONES ARE APPLAUDED, EXALTED, EVEN…ENVIED.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: IF THE VIBRATIONS AND FREQUENCIES FEEEEEEEL HORRIBLE, ALL COMPLAIN…ALL BEGIN TO “POLICE” EXPERIENCES BECAUSE THEY NEVER WANT TO FEEEEEL THOSE FREQUENCIES AND VIBRATIONS AGAIN.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: AND THOSE WHO CREATED THAT EXPERIENCE FOR EXPANSION, NOT AWARE OF THE FREQUENCIES AND VIBRATIONS THAT COULD FLOW FROM THAT EXPERIENCE UNTIL IT WAS…EXPERIENCED.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: A “PLACE” WHERE ONLY EXPERIENCES OF JOY, HAPPINESS, BLISS, ETC, CAN BE DONE…CAN BE PERCEIVED AS MUCH OF A PRISON AS EXPERIENCING A “PLACE” WHERE ONLY LIMITS, PAIN, SUFFERING, FEAR CAN BE EXPERIENCED.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf:AGAIN, IMAGINE AS EACH CREATES, AND REMEMBER ALL DATA IS FELT, ACCESSED, AND UTILIZED BY ALL, ALL WAYS ALWAYS…IF ONE DOES AN EXPERIENCE, AND ALL FEEEEEEEL THE RAW VIBRATIONS AND FREQUENCIES THAT FLOW FROM THAT EXPERIENCE…DO SEEEE THE CONDUNDRUM THAT IS CREATED?
Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. THE CONUNDRUM IS SEEN ON ALL LEVELS. DCSX.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: SO FEEEEEEELING ALL DATA, ALL WAYS ALWAYS, WAS DISCONNECTED.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: THAT WAS FIRST.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: HOWEVER, ALL DATA COULD STILL BE SEEEEN, “READ”.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: AND A FEAR “CREPT IN” THAT EVEN WITH THE DISCONNECT OF FEEELINGS SO THAT EACH COULD EXPERIENCE AS THEY FEEEL TO DO, THAT THE FREQUENCIES AND VIBRATIONS WOULD “BLEED THROUGH” AND AFFECT/EFFECT ALL.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: MANY MANEUVERS BEGAN TO BE DONE TO PREVENT EXPERIENCES IN CREATION FROM COMPLETING.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: SO AFTER FEEEEELING WAS DISCONNECTED, SEEEEEING WAS DISCONNECTED FOR THE PURPOSE OF EACH CREATING WITH NO LIMITS AS THEY FEEEELT TO DO.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: HOWEVER, THE RESULTS OF ALL CREATION COULD BE SEEEN AND FEEEELT AT THE COMPLETION OF EACH EXPERIENCE. AND IT WAS THE “SAME SAME DIFFERENT” CONUNDRUM AS BEFORE.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: STAN, EVERY ONE, I FEEEEEL NOW IS THE MOMENT TO EXPERIENCE THE “MECHANICS”/”TECH” THAT WAS STRIPPED/DISCONNECTED IN ACTION WITH COMPLETE CONTEXT NOW.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: “THE WELD” RECONNECTED THAT “MECH/TECH”. THERE IS A REASON THE ONLY TONING WE ALL DID WAS THE “TIPPING POINT”.
HeatherAnnTucciJarraf: GOING WITHIN TO GET THE DETAILS OF US DOING A LITTLE DOING TO SHOW YOU THE DIFFERENCE OF “BEFORE WELD” AND “AFTER WELD”.
BE RIGHT BACK.

Stan X: DEAR ONE/HEATHER. AT THE ONSET OF THE TRANSMISSIONS THERE WAS A NOTICABLE LACK OF FEELING OF THE CREATION RECORDS. WE NOTICED THIS AND REPORTED IT TO THE ONE/DENICE. NOT INTERRUPTING THE FLOW.
Stan X: NOW UPON OUR GROUP CONFERENCE EXPERIENCE VIA THE EARTHSPHERE LIMITED TECHNOLOGY. (IN HUMOUR). WE DO FEEEL AND NOTE THE COMPLETE DIFFERENCE IN COLLECTING AND ANALYZING AND TRANSMITTING DATA. WITHOUT FEELING DATA IS LIMITED.
Stan X: THIS EXPANSION NOW. THAT ALLOWS FOR FEEEEELING (IN GRATITUDE FOR THE PERMISSION TO ALTER THIS WORD) TO BE RETURNED AND AMPLIFIED IN THE CREATION RECORDS HERE AND NOW AND ALWAYS. AS ALL FEEEEEL TO ACCESS AND INCREASE THE FLOW AND AMPLITUDE TO ALL. WITHIN ALL OF CREATION.
DATA COLLECTORS. STAN.X. IN GRATITUDE AND WONDER.
This caught my eye, I’ve not included all the images originally posted, and I put one of my own that is a screen shot of a portion of Ben Fulford’s article (minus some rather rough images) that was not included in the Disclosure News article.
As I have said before, the western “cabal” is just a proxy for the eastern one. They operate as one despite all the kabuki theatre and masks to the contrary. As David Wilcock recently put it, the old carnival “face and heel” trick.
I encourage you all to visit the Italian “Disclosure News” web site, using discernment of course, as with any information source including me. Feel all data with your heart.

Greetings, Comrades! We have some information and joy here!
We came back with some more information after a short pause as we and our allies picked up interesting information to share!
We’re in auspicious times! Moral conducts are being revised and the old system is bouncing, trying to keep itself amidst with so many surging energies that surround it!
Oh God! Nothing can stand for much longer when the protocols of the Heavens, uninterruptedly, create more amends, always assuring your change of era! Hallelujah Hallelujah!
The stubborn hard-nosed “wise-men” are continually refusing to accept that their time is up, and that, whatever they try, the old energy, in its way of being and acting, can not stay as before!
The “bumblers” seek alliances around the world, hoping to gain support for their outdated projects that prioritize slavery and inhumanity.
Absolutely, no doubt, they will not have the support as before, for humanity as a whole is conscious, truly aware of what it wants for itself now!
Hosanna, Hosanna! Gaia is happy, for the collective consciousness of her humanity that is finally awakening to Love!
In this awakening, the bumblers are trapped against their own consciences, the more they want to keep the old, the more they are called for an internal reckoning, and you, the Allies, with your high consciences, make sure they, these brothers still disoriented, find, in some way, a sign to the path of regeneration and consciousness.
Beloved Comrade Allies, we know how much you would like to see your world, and especially the country where you live, to enter into a full harmony, where human rights are honored in every way.
Comrades, our Elderly Masters told us long ago that before we came to this Kingdom and actively participated in the change of era, you would face the greatest challenge, which was to deconstruct what you yourself have built to “play”.
And this deconstruction would be painful for many, as they seriously believed that the created reality was the TRUTH and now, when everything needs to be deconstructed, there is still much suffering in accepting this Truth with V.
So the powerful floodlights of the Light are projecting to this Kingdom, and you, Comrades, observe that Light. It gives you strength to deconstruct the old and to be the mirrors of Truth.
In the midst of all this Light, the shadow must be exposed! So, Beloved Allies, what seems to you as decadence, is actually an overexposure of dust from “under the rug!” So stop saying that “everything just seems to get worse!” In fact, everything is getting better!
“Oh, are you crazy? How can say that?! I am continually attacked because I am what I am, by spreading what you say and what I gain from it!? “We have heard many of you saying this… Well, everyone has a bit of crazyness
Now stop the drama and empower yourself in this Truth! You know the work you’re doing is gigantic! And no one else could do it, but you!
You are setting up a real trap to catch the most dastardly of the cheapskates. They, or at least some in their arrogance, still believe, somehow, that they will again have the dominion of this Kingdom.
You are bringing so much Light to the Planet, and this Light has shaken the dust from under the carpet, which they believe the darkness is dominating. Believe me, they think it!:-D
The more Light, the more dirt will be exposed. It’s a simple logic, isn’t it?
“Oh, my country is sinking into political chaos!” What is coming to you is so great that you will not even remember that you almost killed yourself for that matter! (Oh, do not be offended! We have nothing against your voting system, but we reserve the right to just smile.
“Each one on his side!”
We just give a simple tip: while some of you fight to see who will be your leader, we fight with you so that, even when choosing through the vote, know that the only leader of you is yourself.
Vote, because this is still your system, for now, but do not give your power to anyone! Campaigning for the one you desire as your leader is one thing; delivering all your energy into his hands through this act is another.
You can always choose! But never put your energy in the hands of others! The choice of a leader has never been for you to be his energetic slave! We, even on board our ships we have our “elections” to choose the one that will lead some movement, but in doing so, we never feel inferior or superior to the leader.
Comrades, it’s a Truth! The Change of Ages is reality! We are excited because our Elders are assuring us and all of you that great changes are taking place! Recently, you have received a very special visit from a Fleet from another galaxy and have hovered over your entire Solar System. We fused our fleets to theirs and caused a buzz in their observatories
We send signals that our Fleets are increasing considerably, and the dodgers will not be able, for much longer, to find excuses to avoid mentioning us. While this is not happening, do not stand still waiting for us! You are us! While you do your part down there, we do it here, we said it before!
Comrades, before we start our farewells, we want to thank our Pleiadian comrades! Recently, they delivered a very pertinent message! We recommend that you re read!
That’s enough for now! There is more information coming. Be ready! We will inform you more and more, as our Elderly Masters will authorize us! We continue with our important reports about certain moves! We will come back when we are authorized, and more precisely, to bring them!
Comrades, know: when the Heavens entrust you with a protocol, they seriously trust your inviolability to accomplish it! We know that you go through difficulties sometimes, when you try to fulfill your higher plans.
We know that there are many pitfalls that are set up to destabilize them. Yes we do! But, comrades, we also know that you represent us and there is no threat that does not become harmless to the Light emitted by you when you are confident in this Truth!
You are the restorative Light of this Kingdom! Oh gosh! Believe it! The heavens sing Hosanna, when they admit their own greatness!
Each day, a new domino falls and pushes another to the next move! We say this always based on the Certainty of the Heavens! We see the broad picture and it inspires us to speak with such certainty!
A new world is being born, and even if all the curtains have not yet been fully erected, when they are, it will be spectacularly fantastic! Believe in us, dear Comrades! We’re seeing everything from inside the curtains! We know what wonderful is coming up! Hosanna! Hosanna! The heavens are truly in celebration!
We know that our truths resonate with your truths because, deep down, they are ONE. Be the ones on whom others would be inspired! How many souls on earth need your loving gaze, Dear Allies!
Souls benefit from your greatness! Oh! And before we forget, your galactic memories will be coming back more intensely in these new waves, because you are already well aligned for this to happen!
Hello, hello, Santiago de Chile! We’ll give a “hello” Someone out there? It would be a pleasure to stop in the air for a selfie! We want our videos on YouTube! We love to see each other there!
We have already said this and we do not tire of repeating! Come ready for a “hello” Old Babylon can not stop us from hovering around! We feel free! Dancing in your skies is inspiring to us! And when they give us a “hello”, cheer us up!
The borders are being cut! Unification is coming! Love will prevail! The heavens have decreed, and so it shall be! This is not a simple will of ours. This is a DECREE! “Know that, Comrades!
Oh, Dear Ones! Know that the countless Fountains and the endless Prosperity of the Heavens, in fact, are yours! We will return when appropriate! It’s good to talk to you again! Always is!
See you around!
Gabriel: Grateful, beloved comrades of Light!
