Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts

intrusive thoughts Everyone has passing intrusive thoughts that seem to come from outside their control: The content may feel alien, absurd, or threatening, and they pass after a few weird moments. Intrusive thoughts can be frightening worries about what might happen to you or someone you care about, or what mistake you might make, or what terrible impulsive act you might possibly commit.

People who experience unwanted intrusive thoughts become afraid that they might commit the acts they picture in their mind. They also fear that the thoughts mean something terrible about them. Many are ashamed and worried about these thoughts, and therefore keep them secret.

People who are bothered by intrusive thoughts need to learn a new relationship to these sticky thoughts—that their content is irrelevant and unimportant. Virtually everyone has occasional weird, bizarre, socially improper, annoying, and violent thoughts. More…

US Government Tops All for Creating Refugees

US Government Tops All for Creating Refugees
by Eric Zuesse
Posted July 26, 2019

US creates more refugees than any other nationOn June 19th, Statistica headlined “Number of forcibly displaced people reaches new high”, and when one looks at the data, one finds an even bigger story which stands behind those numbers:

This new report from the United Nations documents Statistica’s headline, and it proves that America’s regime-change operations have actually created around half of the world’s refugees. It proves that America’s penchant for invading and trying to overthrow the governments that its billionaires want to replace (“regime-change”) has been by far the biggest of all single causes of refugees worldwide, vastly higher than any other government. Regardless of how bad those other governments might possibly be, the US regime is far worse — at least as being the cause, the creator, of the world’s refugee problems. More…

‘Ethnic Cleansing With Impunity’: Israel Denounced for Demolishing Dozens of Palestinian Homes in Violation of International Law

making a 2 state solution impossibleGlobal outcry erupted on Monday—with one critic condemning the move as “ethnic cleansing with impunity”—after Israeli forces demolished dozens of homes in Sur Baher, a Palestinian village that straddles East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank.

“These demolitions are a flagrant violation of international law and part of a systematic pattern by the Israeli authorities to forcibly displace Palestinians in the occupied territories; such actions amount to war crimes,” Saleh Higazi, deputy Middle East and North Africa director for Amnesty International, said in a statement Monday. More…

The Facts:
Israel has rejected the single state solution. Israel claims it supports a 2 state solution.

Reflect On:
When creating more and more settlements and actions such as this take place, they make a 2 state solution impossible. So what is left……., a final solution?

CIA Finances Another Group of Fraudsters: the Venezuelan ‘Opposition’

Posted July 25, 2019

Elliot Abrams, envoy for Venezuela regime changeOnce again, the Central Intelligence Agency has been caught financing a group of grifters and fraudsters at the expense of the American taxpayers. In the latest case, just another in the agency’s 72-year history, the Trump administration-appointed ad hoc board of CITGO, the US subsidiary of the state-owned Venezuelan oil company, PDVSA, stands accused of steering $70 million of escrowed funds, earmarked for PDVSA’s fiscal year 2020 bond, to the pockets of CIA-supported officials of the Venezuelan opposition “Popular Will” party headed by the so-called “interim president” of Venezuela, Juan Guaidó.

In addition to Guaidó, who is accused by the legitimate Venezuelan government of money laundering, treason, and corruption, other Popular Will leaders under investigation by both the Venezuelan Attorney General and the US Justice Department include Carlos Vecchio, Guaidó’s envoy in Washington; Rossana Barrera and Kevin Rojas, Guaidó’s emissaries in Cucuta, a Colombian-Venezuelan border town; Sergio Vargara, Barrera’s brother-in-law and a Member of the Venezuelan Congress; Guaidó’s “ambassador” to Colombia, Humberto Calderon Berti, opposition businessman Miguel Sabal; and Guaidó’s chief of staff, Roberto Marrero. Over two dozen other Popular Will leaders are also under investigation for fraud involving money earmarked by the Trump administration, particularly Iran-Contra scandal felon and current Trump special envoy for regime change in Venezuela, Elliot Abrams.

The Resurgence Of Local Food Swap Events
By Paige Wolf
Posted July 24, 2019

food swaps are growing The food swap movement that began sprouting a decade ago from Portland to Philadelphia, is once again popping up in new incarnations around the country. Kate Payne, author of “The Hip Girl’s Guide to Homemaking” and “The Hip Girl’s Guide to the Kitchen,” thinks the popularity of food swaps is based in the opportunity to connect with the community over something people are really passionate about.

Usually a recurring event, food swaps allow direct trades to take place between attendees — for instance, a loaf of bread for a jar of preserves or a half-dozen backyard eggs. Your special kitchen concoctions become your own personal currency, allowing you to diversify your pantry while getting to know members of your local food community. More…

Broken Healthcare Forces Hospital to Stop Suing Patients

Broken Healthcare Forces Hospital to Stop Suing Patients
by David Silverstein
Posted July 23, 2019

broken healthcareLate last year I met Dr. Marty Makary, a renowned surgeon and professor of Public Health at Johns Hopkins University. Marty told me about the research he was doing. That research was published this week in JAMA which talks about the incredible problem of hospitals suing patients—primarily poor and lower middleclass patients, for unpaid medical debt that they can never come close to paying because of the absurdly high prices for which they are being billed.

One of the hospitals Marty and his research team focused on was Mary Washington Hospital in Fredericksburg, VA, which sues on the order of 100 patients every month.

After learning of Marty’s work, Broken Healthcare joined the research team, identified patients, and hired a local attorney to create a pseudo public defender model. The result has been that every time (100%) that we provided a legal defense for a patient, the hospital dropped its law suit. More…

The Facts:
This article clearly illustrates how the legal system only works for those who can afford it.

Reflect On:
Consider how we have been ingrained into believing and repeating the line “liberty and justice for all”.

The Rise of the Shotgun Banknote Switch

The Rise of the Shotgun Banknote Switch
By J.P. Koning
Posted July 22, 2019

changing money used as control systemEvery decade or two, central banks replace their existing issue of banknotes with a new issue. The main reason they do this is to thwart counterfeiters, who by then will have started to get pretty good at duplicating the existing version. Central bankers have usually tried to make the process as convenient as possible for citizens by offering long, drawn-out — sometimes even indefinite — switching periods. Anyone who finds an old note stored away in a cupboard needn’t worry. It can still be spent at the neighborhood grocery store.

But this is changing. It is getting increasingly fashionable among central bankers to institute rapid and inconvenient shotgun note switches. India’s 2016 demonetization is the most famous example, but now Kenya has taken up the baton. Nor is the phenomenon confined to developing countries. Swedes lived through a series of shotgun switches between 2015 and 2017. More…

same puppet master pulling strings on both sides

Mainstream American liberals think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by Fox and Donald Trump, and mainstream American conservatives think they’re clear-eyed because they can see the propaganda strings being pulled by MSNBC and the Democrats, but the propaganda strings on both trace back to the same puppet master. And seeing that is just the beginning.
